The US Border Patrol is encountering more problems with drug dealers from Mexico. A few weeks ago, a dealer ran over a border patrol agent. The agent, standing in the middle of a two-lane road, had motioned the dealer’s vehicle to stop. Instead, the dealer ran over the agent, killing him, and then drove back across the border into Mexico. He has not been caught yet. Such incidents are on the rise, said one agent. The dealers are getting braver, because they rarely get caught. “Any agent who tries to stop us deserves to die,” said one convicted drug dealer.The dealers are always devising new tricks to get their drugs into the US. They start dangerous fires near the border to distract agents. They shoot cattle on border ranches so that American ranchers will not call agents about suspicious activity. They use dynamite to blow up bridges so agents cannot follow them. They dig tunnels that start in Mexico and connect with buildings on US soil.Their newest trick is to try to behead agents who ride on ATVs (all-terrain vehicles). When an agent drives into a concealed trap, he activates a "clothes line" wire. This wire stretches tightly across the agent's path, at neck level. It could slice right through his neck. The Department of Homeland Security quickly issued a new protective device for its ATV riders--a plastic neck guard. Using computer simulation, the department determined that the neck guard should prevent beheading; however, critical injuries—including a broken neck—are still possible.“These 'clothes lines' are not a big deal,” said a department official. He criticized the media for making a mountain out of a molehill. “Wait until an agent is actually beheaded—then you’ll have a story,” he said to a group of reporters. Article/201108/147571Actor Brett Maverick, the lead actor in many movies, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Hospital after his brother called an ambulance. Luke had found Brett in a dazed state with both of his wrists slashed. A hospital spokesperson said that the cuts on his wrists were superficial, and that Brett was in good condition.The actor has starred in many romantic comedies. He often portrays a character who meets a girl who doesn’t like him at first but falls in love with him by the end of the movie. In fact, a real-life romance occurred in his last movie. His costar, actress Katherine Hepburn, fell in love with Brett and moved in with him. This occurred despite the fact that Katherine was engaged to wed Richard Burton, another well-known actor. Burton, heartbroken, told the media that he was going to become a Buddhist monk.Unfortunately for Brett, Katherine recently made another movie with actor Errol Flynn. This movie, “Love in Baghdad,” is a drama involving a married couple who are separated by terrorists. Katherine told Brett she was going to “visit” Errol on his 200-foot yacht after filming was finished. But soon afterward, TV entertainment shows like “Access Hollywood” and “Entertainment Tonight” showed photos and s almost daily of Katherine and Errol hugging, kissing, dancing, and shopping.“Brett couldn’t take it anymore,” said Luke. “He was y to settle down with Katherine. He was going to quit acting. He had told her that he planned to buy a ranch in Wyoming for the two of them. Just them, the blue sky, the meadows, and the cows and the sheep, for the rest of their lives.” Article/201104/133710Harry dashed around his room, collecting his things and passing them out of the window to Ron.哈利在屋里跑来跑去,收拾了一些东西从窗口递给罗恩,Then he went to help Fred and George heave his trunk up the stairs.然后去帮弗雷德和乔治抬箱子。Harry heard Uncle Vernon cough.哈利听到弗农姨父咳了一声。At last, panting, they reached the landing, then carried the trunk through Harry’s room to the open window.三个人气喘吁吁,终于把箱子抬到了楼上,又一直抬到哈利房间的窗口。Fred climbed back into the car to pull with Ron, and Harry and George pushed from the bedroom side.弗雷德爬回车里,和罗恩一起拉,哈利和乔治在屋里推,Inch by inch, the trunk slid through the window.箱子一点儿一点儿地朝窗外滑动。Uncle Vernon coughed again.弗农姨父又咳了一声。“A bit more,” panted Fred, who was pulling from inside the car. “One good push —”“再加把劲,”弗雷德一边拉一边喘着气说,“猛推一把……”Harry and George threw their shoulders against the trunk and it slid out of the window into the back seat of the car.哈利和乔治用肩膀猛力朝箱子撞去,箱子从窗口滑到汽车后座上。“Okay, let’s go,” George whispered.“好啦,我们走吧。”乔治小声说。But as Harry climbed onto the windowsill there came a sudden loud screech from behind him, followed immediately by the thunder of Uncle Vernon’s voice.可是当哈利爬上窗台时,身后突然响起一声尖厉的鸣叫,紧接着是弗农姨父的咆哮:“THAT RUDDY OWL!”“这该死的猫头鹰!”“I’ve forgotten Hedwig!”“我忘了海德薇!”Harry tore back across the room as the landing light clicked on — he snatched up Hedwig’s cage, dashed to the window, and passed it out to Ron.楼梯口的灯亮了,哈利迅速折回屋内,抓起海德薇的笼子,冲到窗前,把笼子交给罗恩。He was scrambling back onto the chest of drawers when Uncle Vernon hammered on the unlocked door — and it crashed open.他正在重新爬上五斗橱时,弗农姨父捶响了那扇没锁好的门——门开了。For a split second, Uncle Vernon stood framed in the doorway;一时间,弗农姨父在门口呆住了,then he let out a bellow like an angry bull and dived at Harry, grabbing him by the ankle.然后他像一头发怒的公牛般大吼一声,扑向哈利,抓住了他的脚腕。Ron, Fred, and George seized Harry’s arms and pulled as hard as they could.罗恩、弗雷德和乔治抓住哈利的胳膊使劲往外拉。“Petunia!” roared Uncle Vernon. “He’s getting away! HE’S GETTING AWAY!”“佩妮!”弗农姨父喊道,“他要跑了!他要跑了!”But the Weasleys gave a gigantic tug and Harry’s leg slid out of Uncle Vernon’s grasp — Harry was in the car — he’d slammed the door shut —韦斯莱兄弟拼命一拽,哈利的腿挣脱了弗农姨父的手掌。哈利钻进车里,撞上车门,“Put your foot down, Fred!” yelled Ron, and the car shot suddenly toward the moon.罗恩马上喊道:“快踩油门,弗雷德!”汽车猛地向着月亮冲去。 /201205/184294

Credit card companies in dock 信用卡公司上了被告席   The two companies control more than 75% of the market 两家公司控制着美国75%的市场 A court in the ed States has begun hearing the US Government case against the credit card companies Visa and Mastercard for alleged antitrust violations that limit competition.Last Wednesday, a US judge ruled in a landmark anti-trust case that the software giant Microsoft should be broken in two to prevent it abusing its market power. Still flushed from their victory in that case, US competition regulators are flexing their muscles for a battle with the credit card industry. The credit card giants Visa and Mastercard together control over 75% of the US market. 美国法庭已开始审理美国政府状告信用卡公司维萨和万事达违反反垄断条例,限制竞争一案。上周三,美国一法官判决了一宗重大反垄断案,宣判软件业巨头微软公司应一分为二以限制它在市场上的垄断行为。尚陶醉在上一案件的胜利中的美国反垄断官员们又开始拳擦掌准备下一场与信用卡公司的较量。信用卡业巨无霸维萨和万事达控制着美国75%的市场。 Article/200803/31542

Gambling is a very dangerous thing. At least that’s what I think. I don’t think much good comes of it. People lose their money and then get angry. Sometimes people lose everything they have. The only people who win are the companies, casinos, etc. that organize gambling. I don’t really understand why people would want to risk their money. Most of the time they lose it. The odds are always against you. Gambling causes so many social problems I’m surprised governments allow it. In some countries it is illegal to gamble. This is good. I never understand why people gamble again and again. They must get fed up with throwing their money away. I suppose they always think the next one will be the one they make a lot of money.

Eddie Gets a Job — Almost 埃迪碰钉子Hotshot Eddie needed money to buy a new guitar. His old one was on its last legs, and if he wanted to become a famous rock star, he needed the right equipment.Eddie went to his mother and put his cards on the table, asking her for the money to buy a new guitar. His mother refused point-blank. She told him that if he wanted to live a successful life, he should try harder.Next, Eddie turned to his sister, Gillian. She was a smart cookie, and Eddie felt sure she would be able to suggest something. He was right. Gillian told him to get a part-time job at Billy’s Burgers. “Great idea” said Eddie. “How much do they pay?”“Peanuts,” said Gillian. “It will take you years to save up enough money for a guitar, but at least you’ll have something to do. Now go away. I’m trying to .”自命不凡的埃迪需要钱买把新吉他。他的旧吉他快报废了,而如果他想成为一名著名的摇滚明星,他需要合适的装备。埃迪去找他妈妈说明事实,向她要钱买把新吉他。他母亲直截了当地拒绝了他。她告诉埃迪如果他想过功成名就的日子,他就该多加把劲。接着埃迪向他吉莉安求助。她是个聪明的家伙,埃迪相信她能提出好的建议。他猜对了。吉莉安叫他去比利汉堡店打工。 “好主意!” 埃迪说。“他们付多少钱?”“少得可怜。” 吉莉安说,“你得用好几年才能存够钱买把吉他,但至少你会有事情做。现在快走开。我要看书了。”One-eyed Doe 独眼鹿A one-eyed doe was grazing near the river. She kept her one eye on the land to watch out for hunters. She kept the other side of her face towards the river because she never saw hunters coming from the river. However, she didn’t see the boat on the river with sailors in it. When they got close enough, one of them shot her with his rifle. She lay there dying, and with her last few breaths, said, “My God! I expected an attack from land, but it turns out I was safe from that. I took the river for granted, so I didn’t watch it. My enemy came from the one place I least expected!”MORAL: Danger often comes from a source that is least expected.—based on a story from “Aesop’s Fables”一只独眼母鹿正在河边吃草。她用一只眼睛对着陆地,注意看有没有猎人。她脸的另一侧眼睛则对着河流,因为她从未见猎人从河里出现。可是她没有看到河上载着水手的船。当水手们靠近她时,其中一人射杀了她。她躺在那儿奄奄一息。用仅存的几口气说道:“天哪!我以为攻击会来自陆上,结果我却毫发无损。我以为河流这边一定安全,所以我没有注意。我的敌人居然来自最出乎我意料的地方!”寓意:最安全的地方往往是最危险的地方。─根据《伊索寓言》故事改编The Bald Guy 秃头先生Once there was an old guy, who was growing old and starting to lose his hair. By the time he had gone completely bald, he decided to cover his bald head with a wig.One day, he went out hunting with some friends. A strong wind suddenly blew his wig off. When his friends saw what had happened, they started laughing so hard that they could not stop.The bald guy started laughing, too, and just as loudly as the other men. He said to his friends, “How can I expect my fake hair to stay on my head when even my real hair won’t stay there?”从前有个老先生,随着年龄的增长开始掉头发。当他的头发全掉光后,他决定戴顶假发遮掩他的秃头。一天,他和一些朋友一起去打猎。突然一阵强风吹走了他的假发。他的朋友看到这样的情景,全都乐得大笑不止。秃头的先生也开始大笑起来,而且和其他人一样出声大笑。他对朋友说:“连我的真发都不肯留在我的头顶上,我又怎能奢望我的假发会留在那儿呢?” Article/200803/29197
