抚顺市抚顺县治疗早泄哪家医院最好新宾县男科预约Stephen Foster, 1826-1864: America's First Popular SongwriterHe wrote more than two hundred songs during the eighteen forties and eighteen fifties. VOICE ONE:I'm Shirley Griffith. VOICE TWO:And I'm Steve Ember with the VOA Special English program People in America. Today, we tell about Stephen Foster, America's first popular professional songwriter. (MUSIC) VOICE ONE: Stephen Foster You may have heard the old traditional American songs "Oh! Susanna," "Camptown Races" and "My Old Kentucky Home. " But, do you know who wrote them? Stephen Foster. He wrote those and more than two hundred other songs during the eighteen forties and eighteen fifties. His best songs have become part of America's cultural history. They have become American folk songs. Many people in America learned to sing these songs when they were children. Most Americans can sing these songs today. VOICE TWO:Stephen Collins Foster was born on July fourth, eighteen twenty-six in what is now part of the city of Pittsburgh, in the northeastern state of Pennsylvania. He was the ninth child of William and Eliza Foster. He did not have much musical training. But he had a great natural ability for music. He taught himself to play several musical instruments. He could play any music just by listening to it. Stephen Foster began writing songs when he was fourteen. In eighteen forty-seven, he wrote his first successful song, "Oh! Susanna. " Ken Emerson wrote a book about Stephen Foster. It is called “Doo-dah! Stephen Foster and the Rise of American Popular Culture. ” Mister Emerson says "Oh! Susanna" was the first internationally popular song written by an American that everyone can still recognize and sing today. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Stephen Foster married Jane McDowell in eighteen fifty. He wrote many new songs. Some of them were about love. One of the best known is "Jeanie With the Light Brown Hair. " He wrote it for his wife when they were separated. (MUSIC) VOICE TWO:Stephen Foster wrote almost thirty songs for minstrel shows. Minstrel shows became popular in the ed States in the eighteen forties. White entertainers blackened their faces and performed as if they were black entertainers. Minstrel shows included music, dance and comedy. The shows were performed in almost every major American city, especially in the Northeast. One of Foster's songs written for minstrel shows is "Camptown Races. " Today, it is a popular song for children. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Minstrel songs described the culture of black American slaves in the southern states. Yet Foster did not really know anything about this subject. He lived in Pittsburgh for most of his life. He visited the South only once. However, some experts say Foster's minstrel songs showed he did understand how black people in the South lived before the Civil War. The people in Foster's songs love their families and work hard. Now, however, some of his songs are judged insulting to African-Americans. So, music publishers have changed some of the words. And a few of his songs are no longer sung. VOICE TWO:In eighteen fifty, Foster made an agreement with the leader of a successful minstrel group, E. P. Christy. The agreement meant that Christy's Minstrels had the right to perform every new song Foster wrote. Foster also permitted Christy to name himself as the writer of the song "Old Folks at Home. " This became one of most successful songs written by Stephen Foster. It became the official song of the state of Florida in nineteen thirty-five. It also is known as "Way Down upon the Swanee River. " (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Stephen Foster wrote other songs about home and memories of times past. In his book, Ken Emerson says Foster wrote songs about home in part because he almost never lived in one home for long. His father lost all his money when Stephen was a boy. So Stephen was forced to live with many different family members. Although Foster lived in the North, some of his songs suggest a desire to be back home in the American South. VOICE TWO:"My Old Kentucky Home" is an example. Mister Emerson says Foster wrote the song in honor of Harriet Beecher Stowe's anti-slavery book, "Uncle Tom's Cabin." "My Old Kentucky Home" expresses great sympathy for enslaved African-Americans. The black anti-slavery activist Frederick Douglass praised the song. It later became the official song of the state of Kentucky. (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Stephen Foster was America's first full-time professional songwriter. He was a good songwriter. But he was a poor businessman. He sold many of his most famous songs for very little money. He was not able to support his wife and daughter. In eighteen sixty, he moved to New York City. His songs were not as popular as they had been. His marriage had ended. He had no money. For most of his life, he drank large amounts of alcohol. He died on January thirteenth, eighteen sixty-four. He was only thirty-seven years old. VOICE TWO: Sheet music for "Beautiful Dreamer" Stephen Foster was honored in several ways after his death. He was the first musician to be nominated to the Hall of Fame for great Americans. And he was the first American composer whose complete works were published together. Each year, on the anniversary of his death, people in Pittsburgh gather to remember Stephen Foster. They go to the church he attended as a child. They attend a show that honors him. Then they visit his burial place. The end of Stephen Foster's life was sad. But his songs have brought happiness to many people. One of his last songs was one of the most beautiful. It is called "Beautiful Dreamer. " (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:This Special English program was written by Shelley Gollust. It was produced by Lawan Davis. I'm Shirley Griffith. VOICE TWO:And I'm Steve Ember. Join us again next week for another People in America program on the Voice of America. Article/200803/31762抚顺妇女儿童医院医院男科 ;Good gracious!; cried Maria, after a few minutes#39; silence, ;it seems but a day or two since we first came! and yet how many things have happened!;沉默了几分钟以后,玛丽亚叫道:;天呀!我们好象到这儿来才不过一两天,可是事情倒发生了不少啊!;;A great many indeed, ; said her companion with a sigh.;确实变化很多;,她的同伴叹气道。;We have dined nine times at Rosings, besides drinking tea there twice! How much I shall have to tell!;;除了在Rosings喝过2次茶我们还在哪儿吃过9次饭!我得说有多少变化呢!;Elizabeth added privately, ;And how much I shall have to conceal!;伊丽莎白又说道;我又隐瞒了多少呢!;Their journey was performed without much conversation, or any alarm; and within four hours of their leaving Hunsford they reached Mr. Gardiner#39;s house, where they were to remain a few days.她们一路上没有说什么话,也没有受什么惊,离开汉斯福不到四个钟头,就到了嘉丁纳先生家里。她们要在那儿耽搁几天。Jane looked well, and Elizabeth had little opportunity of studying her spirits, amidst the various engagements which the kindness of her aunt had reserved for them. But Jane was to go home with her, and at Longbourn there would be leisure enough for observation.伊丽莎白看到吉英气色很好,只可惜没有机会仔细观察一下她的心情是不是好,因为多蒙她舅母一片好心,早就给她们安排好了各色各样的节目。好在吉英就要跟她一块儿回去,到了浪搏恩,多的是闲暇的时间,那时候再仔细观察观察吧。It was not without an effort, meanwhile, that she could wait even for Longbourn, before she told her sister of Mr. Darcy#39;s proposals. To know that she had the power of revealing what would so exceedingly astonish Jane, and must, at the same time, so highly gratify whatever of her own vanity she had not yet been able to reason away, was such a temptation to openness as nothing could have conquered but the state of indecision in which she remained as to the extent of what she should communicate; and her fear, if she once entered on the subject, of being hurried into repeating something of Bingley which might only grieve her sister further.不过,她实在等不及到了浪搏恩以后,再把达西先生求婚的事情告诉吉英,她好容易才算耐住了性子。她知道她自己有本领说得吉英大惊失色,而且一说以后,还可以大大地满足她自己那种不能从理智上加以克的虚荣心。她真恨不得把它说出来,只是拿不定主意应该怎样跟吉英说到适可而止,又怕一谈到这个问题,就免不了多多少少要牵扯到彬格莱身上去,也许会叫她格外伤心。1.gracious adj.亲切的The queen was gracious enough to invite us.女王亲切地邀请了我们。2.be to do 将要做某事I#39;m to go to travel.我要去旅行了。3.engagement n.诺言Fidelity to engagement is a virtue.信守诺言是一种美德。4.at the same time 同时5.gratify v.使(某人)高兴或满意I was most gratified at/by/with the outcome of the meeting.我对会议的结果感到极其满意. Article/201112/164197Elizabeth here felt herself called on to say something in vindication of his behaviour to Wickham; and therefore gave them to understand, in as guarded a manner as she could, that by what she had heard from his relations in Kent, his actions were capable of a very different construction; and that his character was by no means so faulty, nor Wickham#39;s so amiable, as they had been considered in Hertfordshire. In confirmation of this, she related the particulars of all the pecuniary transactions in which they had been connected, without actually naming her authority, but stating it to be such as might be relied on.伊丽莎白听到这里,觉得应该替达西说几句公道话,辨明他并没有亏待韦翰;她便小心翼翼地把事情的原委说给舅父母听。她说,据达西在肯特郡的有些亲友,他们曾告诉她,他的行为和人家所传说的情形大有出进,他的为人决不象哈福德郡的人们所想象的那么荒谬,韦翰的为人也决不象哈福德郡的人们所想象的那么厚道。为了实这一点,她又把他们两人之间银钱往来上的事情,一五一十地讲了出来,固然没有指明这话是谁讲出来的,可是她断定这些话很可靠。Mrs. Gardiner was surprised and concerned; but as they were now approaching the scene of her former pleasures, every idea gave way to the charm of recollection; and she was too much engaged in pointing out to her husband all the interesting spots in its environs to think of any thing else. Fatigued as she had been by the morning#39;s walk, they had no sooner dined than she set off again in quest of her former acquaintance, and the evening was spent in the satisfactions of an intercourse renewed after many years discontinuance.这番话使嘉丁纳太太听得既感惊奇,又极担心,只是大家现在已经走到从前她喜爱的那个地方,于是她一切的心思都云散烟消,完全沉醉在甜蜜的回忆里面。她把这四周一切有趣的处所逐一指给她丈夫看,根本无心想到别的事上面往。固然一上午的步行已经使她感到倦怠,可是一吃过饭,她又动身往探访故友旧交。这一晚过得真有意思,正所谓:连年怨阔别,一朝喜重逢。The occurrences of the day were too full of interest to leave Elizabeth much attention for any of these new friends; and she could do nothing but think, and think with wonder, of Mr. Darcy#39;s civility, and above all, of his wishing her to be acquainted with his sister.至于伊丽莎白,白天里所发生的种种事情对她实在太有趣了,她实在没有心思往结交任何新朋友;她只是一心一意地在想,达西先生今天为什么那样礼貌周全,尤其使她诧异的是,他为什么要把他介绍给她。 Article/201203/173104抚顺顺城区中医院看男科好吗

辽宁抚顺市医院男科妇科网上预约Obesity is a problem that is getting bigger and bigger around the world. It really hits rich countries. When people have money, they buy a lot of the wrong food. They become lazy and eat fast food. They also forget about exercise and sit in front of the TV instead. The worrying thing is that more and more children are suffering from obesity. This is a big problem. The number of overweight kids I see today is amazing. I think the reason is quite simple – junk food, games and the Internet. When I was growing up, I had a balanced diet. I also spent most of my free time outdoors. I spent hours every day on my bike or playing football. Kids today hardly go outside. They are glued to one kind of screen or another – TV, computer or games console.

辽宁抚顺男科医院哪家好About 2:00 a.m. Monday, a California Highway Patrol officer was hit by an SUV. The officer was thrown about 10 feet before landing in a hedge. The officer was assisting a motorist whose car had stalled on the freeway.The police officer was listed in stable condition at a nearby hospital. The accident occurred after the fast-moving white SUV drove onto the shoulder where the two cars were parked. The SUV struck the officer before plowing into the police car. The driver of the stalled car was unhurt.The SUV rolled completely over. The driver climbed out of the SUV and took off, running in the direction of a nearby off-ramp. Because another police vehicle was nearby, the police caught the driver quickly. He was charged with drunk driving, property damage, causing personal injury, and leaving the scene of an accident.The driver had no license and no insurance. He had been convicted a year ago of driving while intoxicated. At that time he had also injured someone and also fled the scene. He was sentenced to jail for six months. But because the jail was so overcrowded, he was released in one month.“What can we do?” said a policeman. “There are a lot more drunk drivers out there every night than there are police. The only time we can get them off the streets for good is when they kill someone.” Article/201107/143105 “你真是个好心肠的人,我的好老爷!我早就知道你终究会给我说的。你既然疼爱自己的女儿,当然就不会把这样一个朋友不放在心上。我真太高兴了!你这个玩笑开得真太有意思,谁想到你竟会今天上午去拜访他,而且到现在一字不提。” The astonishment of the ladies was just what he wished; that of Mrs. Bennet perhaps surpassing the rest; though, when the first tumult of joy was over, she began to declare that it was what she had expected all the while. "How good it was in you, my dear Mr. Bennet! But I knew I should persuade you at last. I was sure you loved your girls too well to neglect such an acquaintance. Well, how pleased I am! and it is such a good joke, too, that you should have gone this morning and never said a word about it till now. " "Now, Kitty, you may cough as much as you choose, " said Mr. Bennet; and, as he spoke, he left the room, fatigued with the raptures of his wife. "What an excellent father you have, girls!" said she, when the door was shut. "I do not know how you will ever make him amends for his kindness; or me, either, for that matter. At our time of life it is not so pleasant, I can tell you, to be making new acquaintances every day; but for your sakes, we would do anything. Lydia, my love, though you ARE the youngest, I dare say Mr. Bingley will dance with you at the next ball. " "Oh!" said Lydia stoutly, "I am not afraid; for though I AM the youngest, I'm the tallest. " The rest of the evening was spent in conjecturing how soon he would return Mr. Bennet's visit, and determining when they should ask him to dinner.
