 <播放语音>

A few days later; in a restaurant in Hilo on the Big Island
Jun: What is this meat on the rice?
Lisa: It's spam. Hawaiians eat more spam than any other people in the world!
Jun: Well, it tastes weird. I liked Feather's hemp meat better.
Lisa: We eat eleven thousand cans of this stuff a day! Here, try some of my poi.
Jun: Gross. Kind of like congee but nasty.
Lisa: It's an acquired taste, yes. But it's a staple of the islands.
Jun: What are those people outside carrying signs about?
Lisa: I think they're Hawaiian independence activists. Let's look when we're done eating.

(续上期)

小君:这饭上面是什么肉?
莉莎:是猪肉罐头的肉。夏威夷比世界上其它民族要吃掉更多罐头猪肉。
小君:嗯,味道尝起来怪怪的。我比较喜欢羽毛的大麻种子素猪肉。
莉莎:我们一天要吃掉一万一千罐这种罐头呢。来,尝尝我的芋泥。
小君:好恶心喔。有点像粥,不过很恶滥。
莉莎:是啦,这味道是需要去习惯。但是,这是岛上的主食。
小君:外面那些拿牌子的人在干嘛?
莉莎:我想他们应该是夏威夷独立运动份子。我们吃完饭后出去看看吧。


重点解说:

★ spam (n.) 猪肉罐头,poi (n.) 夏威夷用芋头烹煮的菜肴,congee(n.) 粥,稀饭
★ staple (n.) 主食
★ acquired taste (n.) 需要去习惯而后才会喜欢的味道
★ activist (n.) 行动派份子,Hawaiian independence

 
 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

You cannot change the laws of physics ... but could physics actually enable us to travel through time? It might sound crazy, but according to Einstein's theories, there's no logical reason why time travel isn't possible and there are now scientists looking into it as a serious scientific proposal, at least at a theoretical level.

你无法改变物理学定律……但是物理学能否使我们在时间中旅行呢?这听上去或许像个痴想。但是根据爱因斯坦的理论,时间旅行在逻辑上不是不可能的。现在科学家正把它视为一个严肃的科学命题,至少在理论上如此。

 
 => 简明语法


延续动词与瞬间动词

1) 用于完成时的区别
  延续动词表示经验、经历; 瞬间动词表示行为的结 果,不能与表示段的时间状语连用。
   He has completed the work.  他已完成了那项工作。 (表结果)
   I've known him since then.   我从那时起就认识他了。(表经历)

2) 用于till / until从句的差异
   延续动词用于肯定句,表示"做……直到……" 瞬间动词用于否定句,表示"到……,才……"
   He didn't come back until ten o'clock.
    他到10 点才回来。
   He slept until ten o'clock.     
    他一直睡到10点。
 
典型例题
1. You don't need to describe her. I ___ her several times. 
A. had met B. have met  C. met D. meet
  答案B. 首先本题后句强调对现在的影响,我知道她的模样,你不用描述。再次,several times告知为反复发生的动作,因此用现在完成时。

2.---I'm sorry to keep you waiting.
 ---Oh, not at all. I ___ here only a few minutes.
A. have been  B. had been  C. was D. will be
  答案A. 等待的动作由过去开始,持续到现在,应用现在完成时。
