Morley goes jet skiing
Kathy: Let's swim while we wait for Morley.
Dan: We can't. Too many jet skis on this beach. I don't understand why people like jet skis.
Kathy: They're fun. Just look at Morley's smile.
Dan: They're noisy, dangerous, and polluting.
Kathy: You're such a party pooper.
Dan: No, I'm just environmentally responsible.
Kathy: All right, Mr. Geo, let's pick up beach trash then.

(下期续)

莫理去玩水上摩托车
卡西:我们边游泳边等莫理吧。
阿丹:不行。这个海滩太多水上摩托车了。我不懂为何有人喜欢水上摩托车。
卡西:它们好玩啊。你看莫理的笑容就知道了。
阿丹:它们吵死了,危险又污染环境。
卡西:你真是个扫兴的人。
阿丹:不,我只是对环保负责。
卡西:好,地球先生,那我们来捡海滩垃圾吧。


重点解说:

★ party pooper (n.) 扫兴的人
★ responsible (a.) 负责任的
★ Mr. Geo 由于Dan的环保意识很强,所以Kathy才戏称他为Mr. Geo,geo是代表‘土地’、‘地球’、‘地理’的字根

An estimated 8,000 to 18,000 people get Legionnaires' disease in the United States each year. Some people can be infected with Legionella bacteria and have mild symptoms or no illness at all. Patients with Legionnaires' disease usually have fever, chills, and a cough, which may be dry or may produce sputum. Some patients also have muscle aches, headache, tiredness, loss of appetite, and, occasionally, diarrhea. From the time of infection with Legionella bacteria, it takes 2-10 days for symptoms to appear. In most cases, symptoms begin after 5-6 days. Legionnaires' disease is treated with antibiotics, such as erythromycin. The earlier that treatment is begun, the better the outcome.

据估计,美国每年有8000到18000人感染上军团病。有些军团病感染者表现出来的症状比较轻微,甚至根本就没有得病的迹象。军团病患者通常有发烧、畏寒及干咳或咳痰等症状,部分患者还有肌肉疼痛、头痛、疲劳、食欲不振及偶尔腹泻等症状。这种病的潜伏期约为2到10天。多数病例表明,出现症状需要5到6天的时间。军团病可以用红霉素等抗生素进行治疗,越早治疗效果越好。

if, whether引导的名词从句 (1)


1)yes-no型疑问从句
  从属连词if, whether引导的名词从句是由一般疑问句或选择疑问转化而来的,因此也分别被称为yes-no型疑问句从句和选择型疑问从句,其功能和wh-从句的功能相同, 例如:
 主语:Whether the plan is feasible remains to be proved. 这一计划是否可行还有等证实。


 宾语:Let us know whether / if you can finish the article before Friday. 请让我们知道你是否能在星期五以前把文章写完。


 表语:The point is whether we should lend him the money. 问题在于我们是否应该借钱给他。


 同位语:They are investigating the question whether the man is trustworthy. 他们调查他是否值得信赖。
