Alice
: Oh my god! Is that an earthquake?
Chad: Yeah. But I think it's over now. Whew! That was a strong one.
Alice: I wonder how strong it was. I'm going to go and turn on the news when I get home and see.
Chad: You still have faith in the weather reports, after all the recent mistakes?
Alice: What are you talking about?
Chad: Well, just the other day we had an earthquake late in the evening. The news reports on it, just after it had happened, said it was a 5.7 off of Ilan.
Alice: Oh, I remember. And then, later, they changed it to a 6.7 off of Hualien.
Chad: Exactly. I mean, c'mon, that's a massive difference.

(待续)

艾莉丝:我的天啊!那是地震吗?
查德:对。不过我想现在停了。呼,刚刚那个地震还真大。
艾莉丝:不知道有几级。我回家后要打开电视看新闻。
查德:经过最近这么多误报后,你还相信气象报告啊?
艾莉丝:你在说什么?
查德:嗯,前几天深夜这里有地震。就在地震刚发生后,新闻便报导是个震央在宜兰外海的五点七级地震。
艾莉丝:喔,我想起来了。然后,过没多久,他们改口说是在花莲外海的六点七级地震。
查德:没错。我是说,拜托喔,那差很多咧。


重点解说:

★ have faith in...对…有信心;put faith in也是‘对…有信心’
★ weather report 天气预告,气象预报
★ off 是离开,离…多远;off of Ilan / Hualien表示宜兰跟花莲的震央位置
★ massive (a.) 大规模的

Nevertheless, we believe that with technical progress, people can certainly overcome all kinds of difficulties.

移动办公室给人们带来了方便随意的工作环境,但同时也存在着一些诸如设备接口不匹配、电池电力不足等不尽如人意的地方。但是,我们相信,随着技术的进步,人们肯定能战胜种种困难。
