Man
: Maybe you should be, boy. Why, back when I lived in Alaska, our zoo had a polar bear named Binky.
Sam: I have a stuffed brown bear named Binky!
Man: Listen, son. One day an Australian tourist with half a brain decided to get really close to Binky. She wanted to take a good picture.
Sam: What happened? Did Binky come up and shake her hand?
Man: He did a bit more than that-he shook up her whole body, grabbed her in his mouth.

(续上期)

男人:也许你该害怕,小子。啊,以前我住在阿拉斯加的时候,我们的动物园有只叫冰奇的北极熊。
山姆:我有一个褐色的小熊填充娃娃,就叫冰奇。
男人:听着,孩子。有一天,一个愚蠢的澳洲观光客想要非常靠近冰奇。她想要照张好照片。
山姆:然后发生了什么事?冰奇走过来跟她握手吗?
男人:它做了比这个更多一点——它用力扯她的身体,并把她抓进嘴巴里面。

★ shake (v.) 摇动

 => 每日背诵小段落 

  <播放语音>

We hear a lot nowadays about designer babies. The idea that parents can choose the genes of their children sounds frightening. The question we have to answer is: how much can we and should we control the creation of designer babies?

眼下我们听到许多关于人工培育良种婴儿的传闻。这种父母可以为自己的孩子选择基因的想法听上去令人惊恐。我们要回答的问题是:我们能够并应该在多大程度上对婴儿人工培育进行控制呢?

 
 => 简明语法


比较need和dare


  这两词既可做实义动词用,又可做情态动词用。作为情态动词,两者都只能用于疑问句,否定句和条件句。 need 作实义动词时后面的不定式必须带to,而dare作实义动词用时, 后面的to 时常可以被省略。
1) 实义动词: need (需要, 要求)
        need + n. / to do sth
2) 情态动词: need,只用原形need后加do,否定形式为need not。
  Need you go yet?
  Yes, I must. / No, I needn't.
3) need 的被动含义:need, want, require, worth(形容词)后面接doing也可以表示被动: 
  need doing = need to be done
