Tammy
: A student there lost a bet on the NBA finals and then ran naked across the football field.
Bruce: Good for him. At least he lived up to his end of the bet, right?
Tammy: True enough, but the university head seems to value image over honesty.
Bruce: So he got into big trouble?
Tammy: Yep. Two major demerits and two minor demerits.
Bruce: Does that go on his report card or something?
Tammy: No, but if he makes one false move, he could be expelled from the university just like that.
Bruce: Maybe we should organize a naked protest.
Tammy: That sounds like a good way to get yourself deported.

(续上期)

塔米:那里的一个学生赌输了NBA总冠军赛的赌注,然后就裸奔跑足球场。
布鲁斯:真有他的。至少他实践了赌输的承诺,对吧?
塔米:的确如此,但是那所大学的校长似乎把形象看得比诚信还重。
布鲁斯:所以他惹上大麻烦?
塔米:对呀。两大过两小过。
布鲁斯:那会记录在他的成绩单上或诸如此类吗?
塔米:不会,但是万一他出错一次,他就可能会直接被那所大学退学。
布鲁斯:或许我们应该组织一个裸体抗议。
塔米:那听来是个让你自己被驱逐出境的好方法。


重点解说:

★ Good for him. 真有他的。他真行。
★ live up to 实践
★ head (n.) 校长,领导人。university head就是‘大学校长’
★ value A over B 把A的价值看得比B还高
★ demerit (n.) 过失
★ report card 成绩单
★ false (a.) 错误的
★ expel (v.) 开除
★ just like that 就像那样,指‘直接了当,一下子’
★ organize (v.) 组织
★ protest (n.) 抗议
★ deport (v.) 驱逐出境

Despite the fact that 75 percent of the Earth's surface is covered by water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh water. Only 0.3 percent of the fresh water is surface water, found in rivers and lakes. The rest is buried deep in the ground. In many regions of the world, fresh water, both groundwater and surface water, is being used faster than it can be replaced. And now West Asia faces the greatest threat. Over 90 per cent of the region's population is experiencing severe water stress.

尽管地表75%是由水覆盖的,但是其中只有2.5%是淡水。只有0.3%淡水是地表淡水,这些淡水来自河流和湖泊,其余都深埋在地下。在世界的很多地区,淡水,不管是地下水还是地表水,它们的使用速度都快于其再生速度。现在亚洲西部面临着最大的威胁,该地区90%的居民都在经受着严重的缺水压力。
