美国:"We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas…"Have you heard that song? Yup! It's Christmas time! This Christmas, I stayed with my "host family"1. It was an amazing experience to see how a typical American family would celebrate the biggest western festival of the year.Christmas, like our Spring Festival, has a meaning in itself. Christmas Day, which is on December 25, is the birthday of Jesus Christ--the son of God. That's why it is called Christmas. On that day, Christians would get together with their families to celebrate the birthday of Jesus. But nowadays, the religious meaning of Christmas has become less emphasized. To many families, it is just a time of family reunion and the ever-exciting present-giving.Our school had been on winter vacation since December 11. I stayed at my friend, Stephen Stapczynski's house--his family was my "host family". Although Christmas was still more than ten days ahead, the festive spirit had aly been teeming everywhere. The Christmas tree had aly been set up, and on every windowsill, there were Christmas lights. On the first day I arrived at their house, Stephen and I helped Mrs. Stapczynski put decorations on the Christmas tree. The tree looked so nice with all the lights on and the beautiful ornaments dangling from its branches.As Christmas came closer, the whole neighborhood had made preparations too. Some people would hold parties at their houses, inviting all their neighbors to come. So every night, if you went out, you would see a long line of cars parked in front of some house--a party's on!What's more, the Christmas decorations that some people put on their windows and in gardens were just amazing. On one night, we went out in our car for a "tour of lights". There was one street that was so famous for its lights that it got its way into the local paper. We had a hard time finding the well-hidden street, but it turned out to be worth the effort. Lights shone brightly in front of nearly every house, on trees, bushes, doors, windows…everywhere, taking different shapes, making it seem almost like daytime. Huge inflatable figures in the front gardens were waving to us: there were Santa Clauses2, of course, chuckling merrily away; and there were also other Christmas figures, like Rudolph3--the red-nosed reindeer--with his red nose gleaming ever so brightly; even Bart Simpson--a character in the famous comedy The Simpsons--had joined the jolly party, wearing a Santa's hat. The street set off a lot of "ooh"s and "aah"s inside the car.4 When we left, there was a line of cars in the street, all there to see the lights.Christmas is the time for exchanging presents. Stephen and Niko had been thinking about their Christmas lists (a list of things they wish "Santa"to give them for Christmas) for a long time. I didn't want to ask for anything, but the Stapczynskis were so kind to "force"me make one list as well (Mr. Stapczynski told me if I didn't make one he would chop off my legs). So I wrote down a couple of things that I would like to have, and gave the list to them--sorry, my mistake--to Santa.Finally, Christmas Eve came. There was a special Christmas service at the church at 6 p.m. It was certainly a very interesting experience for me. The priest started the service ing and sang out extractions from a holy book--The Divine Liturgy. For several times, we would stand up and pray.Sometimes, the church choir would start singing. The atmosphere was very quiet and holy. Then there was a ceremony called "The Receiving Communion". People waited in line to "receive"a spoonful of food from the priest. It was a very special Christmas tradition. The food was made from b and wine. The b represents the body of Jesus, and the wine represents his blood. After this ceremony, the priest had a speech. He reminded us not to forget the true meaning of Christmas, and let Jesus really live inside us--that is, to love the people around us wholeheartedly. I think that no matter if you are a Christian or not, this principle should be part of our lives. After the priest finished his speech, the part that I enjoyed most came: Christmas carols5. Christmas carols are songs that people sing at Christmas, such as "Jingle Bells", "We Wish You a Merry Christmas", "Silent Night"and so on. Some were very merry, others sounded quite holy, but all of them were beautiful. I closed my eyes, and let all the peacefulness and happiness that were in the songs flow through me. What a feeling it was!We went to sleep earlier that day for we had to get up early on Christmas Day to open our presents. Sure enough, when I was still half-way during a sweet dream, Stephen burst into my room and told me to get up and open presents. There were a huge pile of presents under the Christmas tree, and there was such a mysterious mist shrouding them that made me eager to see what they all were. So one by one, we went through all the presents. Mr. and Mrs. Stapczynski had bought me everything I had written on my Christmas list--and a lot more! I got music CDs, film DVDs, clothes, books… I was very happy, and I didn't know how to express my appreciation for what they had done for me.Stephen and Niko had gotten a lot of presents too, and they had aly been trying out their new games!In the afternoon, we went to Mrs. Stapczynski's brother, Uncle Stan's house. They had prepared a marvelous meal for us. A lot of their friends and relatives also came. I saw Stephen and Niko's grandparents, Yiayia and Papou (words of grandma and grandpa in Greek--Mrs. Stapczynski's parents came from Greece, so they like the boys using Greek words to call them). They were very kind to me, and treated me just like one of their family members. We had a very luxurious meal, consisting of turkey, beef, pork, and all sorts of other food.After the meal, when all the stomachs were full and everyone was feeling drowsy6 from all the food, we just sat around the table and chatted, just like what we Chinese people do at the Spring Festival. After all, Christmas, like the Spring Festival, is a time for us to get away from our busy lives, a time for family gathering, and a time to have some fun.Notes:1. host family: 寄住家庭或接待家庭。学校安排那些圣诞节仍留在美国的国际学生住在当地的寄住家庭中。2.

Snack is food eaten between main meals; it serves different functions in our daily diet. For instance, healthy nutritious snacks can help people with low dietary intake, poor appetite or who are underweight to replenish the deficiency in main meals, and to increase their nutritional intakes. For healthy people, try to choose healthy snacks with appropriate portions, so that appetite for the next main meals would not be affected and additional weight gain would be minimized.零食是人们在主餐间吃的食物,它在我们的日常饮食中,发挥着各种各样的作用。例如,健康有营养的零食可以帮助饭量小、胃口不好或体重偏轻者补充主餐的不足,从而增加营养的摄入。对于健康人来说,应尽量选择分量合适的健康零食,以免下一顿主食的胃口受影响,体重增加的可能性也会被减到最小。Here are some tips for choosing snacks选择零食的小贴士:1. Avoid high fat snacks 避免食用高脂肪零食Since high fat snacks may lead to overweight easily, and snacks containing high saturated fat like coconut oil, butter and animal fat etc. may increase blood cholesterol level, therefore, it is discouraged to eat those high fat snacks. Examples of high saturated fat snacks include cookies, wafer biscuits, cakes, egg tart etc.; oily deep-fried snacks include deep-fried chicken wing and French fries.因为高脂肪零食容易造成身体肥胖,其中所含的大量饱和脂肪,像椰子油、黄油和动物油等,会增加血液中的胆固醇含量,所以最好不要吃高脂肪零食。饱和脂肪含量高的零食有曲奇、威化饼干、蛋糕、蛋挞等;还有油炸类零食,比如油炸鸡翅和炸薯条。2. Cut down high sugar content snacks 少食高糖类零食Sugar increases the energy of foods. Choosing snacks with lower sugar content would reduce caloric intake and play an important role in body weight management. High sugar content snacks include dessert soup, cakes, chocolate, soft drinks, sweetened juices and tinned fruit etc. 糖分会增加食物的热量。选择低糖类零食会减少卡路里的摄入量,有助于控制体重。高糖类零食包括甜粥、蛋糕、巧克力、软饮料、加糖果汁和水果罐头等。3. Avoid high sodium snacks 避免食用高钠类零食Eating high sodium foods over a period of time may increase blood pressure, so choose more often snacks with lower sodium content, and avoid choosing snacks added with salty seasonings and containing preserved meat. High sodium snacks include chili and salty chicken wing, sausage, bacon, luncheon meat, nuts added with salt and preserved plum etc.长期食用高钠类食物容易引起高血压,因此应更多选择低钠类零食,尽量少吃添加含盐调料和腌肉的零食。高钠类零食包括椒盐鸡翅、香肠、咸肉、午餐肉、加盐的坚果和梅子蜜饯等。 /200904/66973

Why Coal May Burn More BrightlyThe International Energy Agency painted a tough energy outlook for coming years, with tightening oil supplies and a surge in global-warming emissions as China and India burn more coal to power their booming economies.国际能源署(International Energy Agency)为今后几年的能源市场描绘了一幅暗淡的图景。它预计石油供应将吃紧,而中国、印度等国煤炭消耗量增加将导致全球温室气体排放量进一步上升。The industrialized world's energy watchdog also predicted fast-growing China will displace the U.S. as both the world's biggest polluter this year and the largest energy consumer by 2010, based on current trends.IEA还预计,经济高速发展的中国今年将取代美国,成为全球最大的污染物排放国,并且从目前趋势看,中国将在2010年后成为最大的能源消耗国。The Paris-based group, in its annual forecast, said a number of factors, including the soaring cost of oil, will contribute to a boom in coal. Aging and less-productive oil fields and resistance among major oil exporters to build spare oil capacity will make crude oil and natural gas more expensive and prompt developing countries to turn increasingly to the world's dirtiest fossil fuel.总部位于巴黎的IEA在其年度报告中表示,油价飙升等众多因素将继续刺激煤炭的使用。油田的长期开采和产量下降以及主要石油出口国不愿增加新产能等因素将进一步推高原油和天然气价格,促使发展中国家更多地转向煤炭这种全球污染最严重的化石燃料。The annual World Energy Outlook, released as U.S. benchmark crude rose 20 cents to .90 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange trading Wednesday morning, also details a continued surge in oil demand that could result in a serious supply crunch around 2015. The agency, which acts as an energy think tank funded by the world's 26 most-advanced economies, portrays a world that by 2030 will be consuming 55% more energy than it is now, with almost half of the growth because of soaring demand in China and India. While oil will remain the world's largest source of energy in terms of metric tons of oil equivalent, at 32%, coal's share is expected to jump to 28%, up from 25% now, contributing to a 57% increase in carbon emissions.IEA 在其年度报告《世界能源展望》(World Energy Outlook)中还详细论述了石油需求的继续增长可能会在2015年前后带来严重的供应问题。报告预计,到2030年,全球能源消耗量将比目前增加 55%,其中约有一半的增长来自中国和印度。尽管从吨油当量指标来看,届时石油仍将是全球最大的能源来源,所占比重为32%,但煤炭的比重预计将从目前的 25%上升到28%,在碳排放增加量中占到57%。Barring unforeseen changes in government policy to reduce oil consumption, the IEA predicts that world-wide oil demand will hit 116 million barrels a day by 2030, up from about 85 million barrels a day now. Electricity use will nearly double, with most of the globe's new plants burning coal.IEA预计,除非各国政府采取措施抑制石油消费,否则全球石油消耗量将在2030年达到每天1.16亿桶,远高于目前的约8,500万桶。全球的大多数新工厂都将使用煤炭,用电量将增加近一倍。For nearly all economies, the tough question is on the supply side. The IEA foresees a boost in production from new fields in the Middle East, particularly Saudi Arabia, but warns that 'it is very uncertain' whether these new sources 'will be sufficient to compensate for the decline in output at existing fields' in the Middle East and among other big producers such as Russia, Mexico and Venezuela.对几乎所有经济体来说,他们都面临着供应面的严峻考验。IEA预计,中东尤其是沙特阿拉伯的新油田产量将会增加,但该组织警告说,很不确定这是否能够补偿中东和俄罗斯、墨西哥及委内瑞拉等石油生产大国现有油田产量的下降。The resulting pinch in supply could result in 'an abrupt escalation in oil prices' around 2015, an event the agency said 'cannot be ruled out.' The dramatic rise in oil prices to nearly 0 a barrel from about in early January has invigorated debate over whether oil prices will go far higher in coming years, or will taper off from a spike that some critics insist is largely driven by speculation.由此带来的供应面的紧张可能导致油价在2015年前后大幅上涨,IEA表示不能排除这种可能性。今年以来,国际油价已从年初的每桶50美元左右飙升至目前的近100美元,今后几年油价将继续上扬还是会冲高回落成了人们争论的问题。一些人士坚持认为,目前油价的上涨主要是由投机行为推动的。The IEA bluntly says consumers and governments globally are doing too little to improve energy-supply security and to cut pollution. Even under the most optimistic assumptions, global carbon emissions -- the main culprit blamed for global warming -- will be 25% higher in 2030 from today's levels.IEA坦率地表示,全球的消费者和政府所作甚少,不足以加强能源供应安全和降低污染。即使按照最乐观的假设,到2030年时全球的碳排放量也将比目前水平增加25%。'The pathway we're on is not sustainable' both for the health of the environment and for securing stable energy supplies in the future, IEA Executive Director Nobuo Tanaka told journalists in London. 'Time is running out.'IEA执行干事田中伸男(Nobuo Tanaka)在伦敦向记者表示,无论从环保角度还是保持未来能源供应稳定的角度看,我们目前的做法都是不可持续的。时机正在一点点丧失。China and India are setting the tone of global energy markets with the size of their populations, each over one billion, and double-digit economic growth rates. The IEA predicts that the two Asian countries combined will import more oil in 2030 than Japan and the U.S. do today. China and India also will account for 80% of the growth in coal consumption over the next two decades, with China tapping abundant domestic supplies but India having to import more of what it needs.中国和印度正在全球能源市场扮演着越来越重要的角色,两国的人口数量都超过10亿,经济增长率都在两位数以上。IEA预计,这两个亚洲国家到2030年的石油进口总量将超过目前日本和美国的进口量之和。在今后20年中,全球新增煤炭消费量将有80%来自中国和印度,中国有着充足的国内供应,而印度则需要进口更多煤炭。While the IEA focused its most recent outlook on China and India, it also forecast booming demand in the Middle East. Oil use there is expected to hit 7.9 million barrels a day by 2015, more than twice the predicted demand in India.尽管IEA在报告中重点关注了中国和印度市场,但它预计中东地区的需求也将增长。预计2015年时,中东地区的原油消耗量将达到每天790万桶,是印度预期需求量的两倍以上。Although China is taking measures to mitigate global-warming emissions, the Asian giant is to become the world's biggest polluter this year in absolute terms and the largest energy consumer, ahead of the U.S., shortly after 2010, based on current trends, according to the IEA outlook. On a per-capita-emissions basis, the U.S. is expected to remain the world's biggest greenhouse gas producer over the next two decades.尽管中国正在采取措施减少污染物的排放,但IEA在报告中预测,照目前趋势发展,以绝对值衡量,中国今年将成为全球最大的污染排放国,并在2010年之后不久取代美国成为最大的能源消耗国。按人均排放量统计,预计美国在今后20年仍将是全球最大的温室气体排放国。Renewable energy sources such as solar will grow in use in certain areas, like the U.K., but the current logistical challenges and costs of using and developing them mean all renewable energy sources will remain a fraction of total energy use globally in 2030 at about 10%, unchanged from today.太阳能等可再生能源在英国等一些国家将得到更广泛的使用,但目前的物流难题及应用和开发成本意味着,到2030年时,全球的所有可再生能源在全部能源中所占比例仍将保持在目前的10%左右。The IEA says improved energy efficiency, technical improvements for burning coal more cleanly, and building more nuclear power plants, which emit almost no carbon emissions, are some of the responses consumers and governments must take to ease energy-supply concerns and to cut carbon gases.IEA表示,提高能源效率、发展清洁煤炭技术及建设更多的核电站是消费者和政府必须采取的缓解能源供应紧张和减少温室气体排放的对策。Such measures are critical because finding new oil and gas supplies around the world is getting far more expensive and unpredictable even though state-run and publicly traded energy companies are sinking hundreds of billions of dollars into exploration efforts. Part of the oil and gas supply problem in the years ahead also stems from a more disciplined approach by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to increasing spare oil-production capacity. The 12-nation producer group says it is spending more than 0 billion currently on new projects, but it doesn't want to be stuck with too much capacity down the road in case demand falters, which would then squeeze oil prices.这些措施至关重要,因为尽管国有和上市能源公司在勘探上投入了数千亿美元,但在全球范围内寻找新油气田的成本越来越高,难度也越来越大。近年来油气供应紧张的原因之一还在于石油输出国组织(OPEC,简称:欧佩克)在增加新产能问题上采取了比较保守的做法。欧佩克表示,目前已投资1,000多亿美元用于新项目建设,但为了防止需求下降并进而打击油价,它并不想大规模提高产能。OPEC is expected to supply just over half the world's oil supply by 2030, compared with about 40% today, as non-OPEC production falls.随着非欧佩克国家产量的下降,到2030年时,估计欧佩克在全球石油供应中所占的比例将超过50%,高于目前的约40%。 /200808/45864

记忆中的春节变了,真的变了。可是不管形式怎么变化,春节的意义对于中国人来说都始终没有改变。对于幸福生活和美好生活的憧憬也是不会变。人们在各自忙碌的生活中,期盼着下一个春节的到来,再次挤入返乡的人流,回家过年。  许多禁忌,年轻人都已淡漠了,实际上,春节的许多习俗也都在变化。  Many young people pay less and less attention to taboos during the Spring Festival. In fact, many customs during the Spring Festival have also changed。  原来到过年啊,蒸馒头,包包子,现在不是,什么也不做,如果来了人,都想好了,上大街上,楼下就有饭馆,到那儿点几个菜。  In the past, people would steam Mangtou and make baozi for the Spring Festival. But now people do not make them anymore. If a guest comes, they will go out and have a nicemeal in a restaurant。  小时候就是吃好吃的,放鞭炮,穿新衣。现在呢,也无所谓了吧,这个好吃的也老能吃,新衣想什么时候穿什么时候穿。  In my childhood, we can enjoy delicious food, fire crackers and wear new dresses during Spring Festival. Nowadays, these things are not sospecial. We can always eat delicious food and wear new clothes anytimewe want。  现在过年其实也就是图个团圆,图个热闹。  Now to celebrate the Spring Festival is to get together and have a great time。  以前八十代初,到年末,一定要看春节晚会,这个是我们过春节的一个很重要的一项,可现在呢,这个春节晚会,电视台的,有时也看,看挑挑,有时候就不看了。  In 1980s, at the eve of the Spring Festival, one must watch SpringFestival Party by CCTV. It was a very important part of ourcelebration. But now, sometimes we watch it on television. Sometimes,we don’t。  1983年中央电视台第一次播出了"春节联欢晚会",汇聚了国内最知名的艺术家,代表着最高的节目水平。从那以后,除夕夜全家人吃着年夜饭,看春节联欢晚会,成了一个新的习俗。春节联欢晚会也成了每年电视台最重视的节目之一。  In 1983, Spring Festival Party was broadcaston CCTV for the first time. It gathered the most renowned artists allover China and represented the highest level of a TV program. Sincethen, a new tradition came into Beijing. At Spring Festival Eve, thewhole family will have dinner together and watch Spring Festival Party.Spring Festival Evening also becomes one of the most important TV program for CCTV。  为什么会形成这个习俗,很多专家也在研究。也许是因为它可以通过电波把全国甚至全世界的华人联系在一起,营造一个"举国同庆"的时刻,让每个电视机前的人分享共同的快乐吧。  Why this new custom came into being? Many experts carry research on it.Maybe it can connect Chinese people all over the world together and create a moment of nationwide celebration, and let everyone in front ofTV share this moment of joy。  现在孩子们,不怎么愿意在家过年。三十弄完了,初一就踮了,就跑了,就跟朋友旅游去了,去玩去了。  Nowadays,children do not like to celebrate the Spring Festival at home. When the Spring Festival eve is over, they will get out and go travelling with friends。  过年的那个内容吧,它好多是亲情吧,(大家)凑在一起。现在啊,好多人,我周围好多人,都觉得现在过年的味儿怎么越来越淡呢?  The celebration of the Spring Festival in the past contains a lot of family affection.People would get together. Now many people, many people around me allfeel that, why the flavor of Spring Festival is not as strong as before?  城市的人呢,这种无论是这种工作的节奏、生活的水平有很大的提高,所以这种感觉只是说城市的人感觉到。这个年的味道越来越少了,那么另一方面就要看农村,中国的城乡差别还是比较大的,所以我们看到农村里边去过年呢,你就不感到那个年味好像是有多淡了。  This feeling is only sensed by urban citizens, no matter how fast working pace goes and how good the life condition improves. On the other hand,we should look at the countryside. There are a lot of differences between rural area and urban area in China. If we look at the celebration of the Spring Festival in the countryside, you will not feel the flavor of the Spring Festival is weakened。  不管形式怎么变化,春节的意义对于中国人来说都始终没有改变。对于幸福生活和美好生活的憧憬也是不会变的。春节假期过后,人们在各自忙碌的生活中,期盼着下一个春节的到来,再次挤入返乡的人流,回家过年。  Nowmatter how the forms change, the meaning of the Spring Festival for Chinese people still remains unchanged. Their wishes for happy life arealso unchanged. After the Spring Festival holiday, people will go backto their busy life. They are looking forward to the next Spring Festival. They will join the returnees to go back to their hometown andcelebrate it with their family。  为什么会形成这个习俗,很多专家也在研究。也许是因为它可以通过电波把全国甚至全世界的华人联系在一起,营造一个"举国同庆"的时刻,让每个电视机前的人分享共同的快乐吧。  Why this new custom came into being?
