The Future of Cars10. 汽车的未来The fact is, when we do our market research around the world, we see that theres nearly a universal aspiration on the part of people to own an automobile. And 750 million people in the world today own a car. And you say, boy, thats a lot. But you know what? Thats just 12 percent of the population. We really have to ask the question: Can the world sustain that number of automobiles? And if you look at projections over the next 10 to 15 to 20 years, it looks like the world car park could grow to on the order of 1.1 billion vehicles. Now, if you Parked those end to end and wrapped them around the Earth; that would stretch around the Earth 125 times.实际上,我们在做世界范围的市场调研时,发现人们都是对车充满渴望的。现在全球有7亿5千万人拥有汽车。你可能觉得,哇,这么多!但你们知道么?这个数字仅仅占全球人口的12%。我们不得不问这样一个问题:地球能承受得了这么多车么?如果你注意到对未来10年、15年至20年的预测,你会发现世界上停车场的数量将会增长到能容纳下11亿车辆。如果将这些车首尾相连绕地球停放,那么其长度将是地球周长的125倍。Now, weve made great progress with automobile technology over the last 100 years. Cars are dramatically cleaner, dramatically safer, more efficient and radically more affordable than they were 100 years ago. But the fact remains: the fundamental DNA of the automobile has stayed pretty much the same. If we are going to reinvent the automobile today, rather than 100 years ago, knowing what we know about the issues associated with our product and about the technologies that exist today, what would we do?在过去的100年里,汽车技术飞速发展。汽车变得更加清洁、安全、高效,而且价格更加低廉,而不是让我们望而兴叹的东西。但实际上,汽车的基本构造功能没变。如果我们今天来重新发明汽车,而不是在100年前,在已经知道汽车的各种缺陷之后,结合现在的各种先进技术,我们会如何制造汽车?What weve targeted for ourselves--and were making great progress for this goal--is to have a propulsion system based on hydrogen and fuel cells, designed and validated, that can go head-to-head with the internal combustion engine.我们的目标是制造一个以氢燃料电池为基础的推进系统,这个目标正在进展中并且不断得到改进。经过设计及验后,这个推进系统将能与内燃机媲美。201705/50569852.

VOA流行美语 83: SHOOT / SHOTMichael和李华刚在外面吃完晚饭。李华会学到两个常用语:shoot和shot。L: 嗨,这顿饭吃得真不错。Michael, 快付帐,我们走吧。这次该你付了吧?M: Yeah yeah, I know. I'll just charge it to my credit card.... oh shoot! I forgot my wallet!L: 你忘了带钱包?没有信用卡你就要shoot. Shoot不是开吗?M: I said "Oh shoot!". If you say "shoot" loudly and suddenly, it's a way to express alarm or disappointment. If you say it slowly, and with a low tone of voice, it shows disgust or indifference.L: 噢,shoot在这里不是开的意思呀?你说,突然大声地说shoot,就表示惊吓或者是失望。如果是低声地说,那就表示讨厌或者是不在乎。Michael, 你先给我举个大声说的例子吧。M: Well, if I close my car door and realize that I just locked my keys inside, I might yell "Aw, shoot!"L: 关了车门才发现车钥匙给锁在车里了,那是很烦人的,在中文里我们就会说:啊呀,真糟糕!那Michael, 可不可以再给我举一个低声说的例子呢?M: If someone tells me a story about a scar on their little finger, I might say "Shoot, that's nothing. Look at this big scar on my back."L: 你的意思是,如果小手指上一个疤跟你背上的大疤比算不了什么。在中文里我们是说:嗨,那算什么! 对了,Michael, 这个shoot是不是骂人的话?M: (slowly) Li Hua, the word "shoot" isn't vulgar! Actually, it's a word people use when they want to avoid cursing. A little kid could say it, and no one would care.L: 噢,shoot是心里很火,可是又不想骂人的时候说的。所以不是什么难听的话。得了,你忘了钱包,那看来只能我来付钱了!Oh shoot! I don't believe it. 我也没带信用卡。那我们怎么办哪?M: (slowly) Shoot, it's nothing to worry about, Li Hua. My house is close by. I can walk home and get my wallet.******L: Michael, 你怎么那么快就回来了?M: (panting) I ran as fast as I could. (pants some more) Boy, am I shot!L: 你从家里跑来的! 你那么紧张干什么呀! 对了,你刚才说:I am shot! 在路上有人对你开,所以你才跑那么快啊?M: What? No, of course not! "To be shot" means to have no energy, to feel weak and tired. I really tired myself out running so fast: I'm really shot now!L: 噢,to be shot是累了,觉得没劲的意思。哎哟,你跑那么快当然会累咯。对不起,本来我也可以走回家去拿信用卡的,可是我昨晚只睡了五个小时,所以我今天也感到很累 - so I'm shot too.M: I used to stay up late studying too, and sometimes I'd be so shot that I'd fall asleep in class.L: 我也跟你一样,老是开夜车念书,结果上课的时候悃得打瞌睡。以前在国内念书的时候好象都没有这么紧张呢!M: (slowly) Shoot, Li Hua. If you feel that way, you might as well stay in China.L: 哼,要是我这么想,我就最好呆在中国!你说这话是什么意思呀!那你老觉得累,你干脆呆在家里算了。M: Shoot! Don't be mad! I was just kidding.L: Shoot, 我也是跟你开玩笑嘛。李华学到了两个常用语,一个是shoot,这是一个惊叹词,表示讨厌,失望或者是烦恼,也就是有的时候心里不高兴,但是又不想用脏话骂人的时候用的词。李华还学到了to be shot,这是很累的意思。 /200602/3158
