Homebuyers nationwide are watching housing prices go up, up, and up. “How high can they go?” is the question on everyone's lips. “As long as interest rates stay around 5 percent, there's no telling,” remarked one realtor in Santa Monica, California. “It's crazy,” said Tim, who is looking for a house near the beach. “In 1993, I bought my first place, a two-bedroom condominium in Venice, for ,000. My friends thought then that I was overpaying. Five years later, I had to move. I sold it for 0,000, which was a nice profit. Last year, while visiting friends here, I saw in the local paper that the exact same condo was for sale for 0,000!” It is a seller's market. Homebuyers feel like they have to offer at least 10 percent more than the asking price. Donna, a new owner of a one-bedroom condo in Venice Beach, said, “That's what I did. I told the owner that whatever anyone offers you, I'll give you ,000 more, under the table, so you don't have to pay your realtor any of it. I was tired of looking.” Tim says he hopes he doesn't get that desperate. “Whether you decide to buy or decide not to buy, you still feel like you made the wrong decision. If you buy, you feel like you overpaid. If you don’t buy, you want to kick yourself for passing up a great opportunity.” Everyone says the bubble has to burst sometime, but everyone hopes it will burst the day after they sell their house. Even government officials have no idea what the future will bring. “All we can say is that, inevitably, these things go in cycles,” said the state director of housing. “What goes up must come down. But, as we all know, housing prices always stay up a little higher than they go down. So you can't lose over the long run. Twenty years down the road, your house is always worth more than you paid for it.” Article/201106/141827Right, said Wood. Now, Quidditch is easy enough to understand, even if it#39;s not too easy to play.好,伍德说,是这样,魁地奇球的规则很容易理解,尽管玩起来并不容易。There are seven players on each side. Three of them are called Chasers.每边七个人,其中三个被称为追球手。Three Chasers,Harry repeated, as Wood took out a bright red ball about the size of a soccer ball.三个追球手。哈利重复道。这时伍德拿出一只足球那么大的鲜红的球。This ball#39;s called the Quaffle, said Wood.这个球叫做鬼飞球。伍德说。The Chasers throw the Quaffle to each other and try and get it through one of the hoops to score a goal.追球手互相传递鬼飞球,争取让它通过一个圆环,这样便可以得分。Ten points every time the Quaffle goes through one of the hoops. Follow me?鬼飞球每次通过一个圆环,就可以得十分。明白了吗?The Chasers throw the Quaffle and put it through the hoops to score,Harry recited.追球手把鬼飞球投出去,让它穿过圆环,便可以得分了。哈利复述道。So -- that#39;s sort of like basketball on broomsticks with six hoops, isn#39;t it?这么说——这是一种用飞天扫帚和六个圆环玩的篮球,是吗?What#39;s basketball?said Wood curiously.篮球是什么?伍德好奇地问。Never mind, said Harry quickly.没什么。哈利赶紧说。Now, there#39;s another player on each side who#39;s called the Keeper -I#39;m Keeper for Gryffindor.好吧,每边还有另一个队员,叫守门员——我就是格兰芬多队的守门员。I have to fly around our hoops and stop the other team from scoring.我必须在我们的圆环周围飞来飞去,不让对方得分。 /201205/183201爱丽丝走后,她仍静坐在那里,头向前在一只手上,望着西下的夕阳,想着小爱丽丝和她梦中的奇幻经历,然后自己进人了梦乡。下面就是她的梦。 But her sister sat still just as she left her, leaning her head on her hand, watching the setting sun, and thinking of little Alice and all her wonderful Adventures, till she too began dreaming after a fashion, and this was her dream:-- First, she dreamed of little Alice herself, and once again the tiny hands were clasped upon her knee, and the bright eager eyes were looking up into hers--she could hear the very tones of her voice, and see that queer little toss of her head to keep back the wandering hair that WOULD always get into her eyes--and still as she listened, or seemed to listen, the whole place around her became alive the strange creatures of her little sister's dream. The long grass rustled at her feet as the White Rabbit hurried by--the frightened Mouse splashed his way through the neighbouring pool--she could hear the rattle of the teacups as the March Hare and his friends shared their never-ending meal, and the shrill voice of the Queen ordering off her unfortunate guests to execution--once more the pig-baby was sneezing on the Duchess's knee, while plates and dishes crashed around it--once more the shriek of the Gryphon, the squeaking of the Lizard's slate-pencil, and the choking of the suppressed guinea-pigs, filled the air, mixed up with the distant sobs of the miserable Mock Turtle.

After the first fortnight or three weeks of her absence, health, good humour, and cheerfulness began to reappear at Longbourn. Everything wore a happier aspect. The families who had been in town for the winter came back again, and summer finery and summer engagements arose. Mrs. Bennet was restored to her usual querulous serenity; and, by the middle of June, Kitty was so much recovered as to be able to enter Meryton without tears; an event of such happy promise as to make Elizabeth hope that by the following Christmas she might be so tolerably reasonable as not to mention an officer above once a day, unless, by some cruel and malicious arrangement at the War Office, another regiment should be quartered in Meryton.她走了两三个星期以后,浪搏恩又重新恢复了愉快欢乐的气象。一切都欣欣向荣。上城里过冬的那些人家都搬回来了,人们都穿起了夏天的新装,到处是夏天的约会。班纳特太太又象往常一样动不动就发牢骚。到了六月中旬吉蒂完全恢复了常态,到麦里屯去可以不掉眼泪了,伊丽莎白看到真高兴,她希望到了圣诞节,吉蒂会变得相当有理智,不至于每天三番五次地提到军官们,除非作战部不管人家死活,又来一次恶作剧,重新调一团人驻扎到麦里屯来。The time fixed for the beginning of their northern tour was now fast approaching, and a fortnight only was wanting of it, when a letter arrived from Mrs. Gardiner, which at once delayed its commencement and curtailed its extent. Mr. Gardiner would be prevented by business from setting out till a fortnight later in July, and must be in London again within a month, and as that left too short a period for them to go so far, and see so much as they had proposed, or at least to see it with the leisure and comfort they had built on, they were obliged to give up the Lakes, and substitute a more contracted tour, and, according to the present plan, were to go no farther northwards than Derbyshire. In that county there was enough to be seen to occupy the chief of their three weeks; and to Mrs. Gardiner it had a peculiarly strong attraction. The town where she had formerly passed some years of her life, and where they were now to spend a few days, was probably as great an object of her curiosity as all the celebrated beauties of Matlock, Chatsworth, Dovedale, or the Peak.他们北上旅行的日期已经迫近,只剩下两个星期了,不料这时候嘉丁纳太太却寄来了一封信,使行期耽搁下来,旅行范围也得缩小。信上说,因为嘉丁纳先生有事,行期必须延迟两个星期,到七月里才能动身,又因为他只能出外旅行一个月便得回到伦敦,日期很短促,不能照原来的计划作长途旅行,饱餐山川景色,至少不能照原来所安排的那样悠闲自在地去游览,湖区必须放弃,旅程必须缩短,只能到德比郡为止。其实德比郡就足够供他们游览,足够他们消磨短短三星期的旅行日程,而且嘉丁纳太太非常向往那个地方。她以前曾在那儿住过儿年,现在能够旧地重游,盘桓数日,便不禁对于马特洛克、恰滋华斯、鸽谷、秀阜的风景名胜,心醉神往。 Article/201202/170006

Stars, Bulbs, and Light Pollution 都是光"害"的!Our ancestors enjoyed a cleaner world. The water and air were cleaner, and when people went out at night, they could look at the stars above and ask questions about our place in the universe. Nowadays, in modern cities, we can barely see the stars at night because our view of them is not only obscured by the quality of the air, but by the quality of light as well. Not many people realize that the misuse or misdirection of light is a form of pollution. Quite simply, it is called light pollution. Like other forms of environmental damage, light pollution is created by man and contaminates our surroundings. Like other forms of pollution, it also harms the environment. Just as our opportunities to enjoy rain forests are being taken away by human carelessness, so is our view of the stars at night. However, unlike other forms of environmental damage, the effects of light pollution can easily be reduced and even reversed.The damage caused by light pollution comes from poorly designed outdoor lighting. Most cities in the world today use outdoor lighting that is not only far too bright, but also directed to places where it is not needed. This wasted light reflects off tiny particles of dust and moisture in the air, causing skyglow. Skyglow causes clouds to glow white, orange, or pink, and destroys our view of the nighttime sky.The solution to light pollution is to use lower-wattage outdoor bulbs and full cutoff shielding. An electric lamp should send all its light down, not upward or sideways. Full cutoff means that no light rays from the lamp go above the horizon and that at least 90 percent of the light is blocked from going sideways.Many cities in the world have made changes in the use of outdoor lighting. The result saves money and energy. It also restores our nighttime sky to the way it was when our ancestors gazed above.我们的祖先享有比较干净的世界。那时的空气和水都比较干净,人们晚上外出时,可以看着天上的繁星,探讨我们在宇宙空间的位置的有关课题。如今,在现代化的都市中,我们晚上几乎难得一见天上的星星,由于空气和光线的质量,使星空的景像变得模糊不清。很多人不知道光线的滥用和乱射也是一种污染。简单地说,这就叫做“光污染”。 就像其它形式的环境破坏,光污染是由人类一手造成的,而且污染了人类自身的环境。和其它形式的污染一样,光污染也会对环境造成损害。晚上我们观赏星星美景和我们本就享有的欣赏雨林的机会,都因为人类的疏忽而被剥夺。然而,和其它形式的环境破坏不一样的是,光污染的影响是可以轻易被减轻,甚至被转变为好处的。 光污染造成的破坏,来自户外照明的设计不当。大多数城市现在所使用的户外照明,不仅远远超过所需的亮度,还照射到不需照明的区域。这些多余的照明,碰到空气中的微尘粒子和水分子后发生反射,就造成空中的“霞光”现象。“霞光”使云发出白色、桔色,或是粉红色的光,就破坏了我们的夜景。 解决光污染的方法就是使用低瓦数的户外灯泡与完全阻隔溢光的遮罩。电灯的光线应该向下照射,而不是向上或向旁边照射。“完全阻隔”是指电灯光线的照射不高出地平线,而且至少可以阻挡百分之九十的光线向旁边照射。 世界上许多城市改变了户外照明的使用方式,因而省下了金钱和能源。还使我们的夜空恢复到以前我们祖先所仰望凝视的模样。 Article/200803/29201
