South Carolina on Today showMiss Teen USA 2007 Caitlin Upton from South Carolina visits Today show to answer the map question rightThanks. Now there a clip has become a talk of the Intrenet is taken from Friday's Miss Teen USA Pageants and shows a very nervors Miss South Carolina having a very tough time when in the questionamp;answer part of the program . Take a look. Recent polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is ? I personally believe that US Americans are unable to do so because some people out there are in our nation don't have maps . And I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and the Iraq, everywhere like such as. And I believe that they should, our education over here in the US shoud help the US should help South Africa , and should help the Iraq and Asian courtries. So we will be able to build up our future. Miss South Carolina, Caitlin Upton, good morning. Good morning.you are getting so nervous about this. But let me tell you something. You have no idea what this man says on a regular basis on this live program. That's nothing. Can we also... That's the first time you have seen that, isn't it ? Yes, actually that is the first time I have seen that. And I'm nervous just sitting here right now, live, national television again. AndI know and it was the first time actually you had been on national television (Yes, that's the first time.) where you were competing. And it was, it was just one of those moments when you were asked these questions. I am sure everything came at you at once. Yes, everything did came at me at once. And I was overwhelmed, and I made a mistake, everybody makes mistake. I'm human. At what point, Caitlin, during the answer did you start to think to yourself: Is this making any sense? Um , right when the question was asked to me, I was in completely shock and I was just overwhelmed that I seriously think I only heard about one or two words of the actual question itself. And I misunderstood....You just kind of drew a blank? Yes , I drew a blank, I misunderstood, I made a mistake. You know, as we have said, you know, we do live television everyday. Caitlin, if I can't even count the number of times I've said things, and then we've all gone the commercial break, and we look at each other, like: “What you just say?" I mean, so , please you know, don't don't let it get you down. I mean, and I know the fact that it's on Youtube and a lot of people are watching it right now . Probably has to be a double-edged sword, on the one hand you think it's kind of funny , on the other hand it's not all that funny to you, is it?No, but then again, looking back on it, I’m sitting here laughing at myself because I feel like it's that really me? standing up there answering that question, (It's not the body. You've scared us~) yeah! It's like I am not in my actual body. I give you a lot of credit for being here. You know, you could just go under the covers , but here you are ,sitting here , laugh at yourself. You know what I say, good girl. Good girl, you! Yes, definitely. You still finish what, in the top four?Yes, I actually placed the third round up . And , so and have you allowed youreslf to go back and think you what if I have done a little better on that question, how the outcome might have been different? For example, do you want to redo on that question? Of course . I would love to reanswer that question.Ok. Let me ask you that question again, the question is recent polls have shown that a fifth of Americans can't locate the US on the world map. Why do you think this is ? Caitlin?Well, personally , my friends and I we know exactly where the ed States is on our map. I don't know anyone else who dosen't. And if the statistics are correct, I believe that there should be more emphasis on geography in our educaion so people would learn how to maps better. Yeah, I gotta tell you . That was a perfect answer. Very good, Caitlin.You know, I think they should just do the thing over on Fri. And come on, let's go back to Friday night. Let's go for another Saturday. Yeah, let's just go back in time and redo everything.. Pretty girl , you are just 18 years old. Yes, I am 18. And I believe that I'm a very strong person. I have a very strong character and my parents raise me very well. What are your plans? What do you want to do? I mean, you know, in terms of after that Pageants. What are your goals? Well, my goal is to attend Appalachian State University, major in graphic design. Once grduated from there, go to L.A. and go into the International Academy of Designamp;Technology ,major in special effects, learning to design special effects for movies and television. Good for you , well , you got a lot of grade . Thank you. Cailin, good luck to you on everything! Thank you so much!And thank you for having been big enough to laugh at yourself this morning. It's hard. (Thank you!) I know. Believe me. Pageant: Normally, a pageant is a colourful public procession, show, or ceremony. Pageants are usually held out of doors and often celebrate events or people from history. But here, a pageant or a beauty pageant is a competition in which young women are judged to decide which one is the most beautiful.draw a blank: to fail to find or remember something.02/61608Oh, we have too many these guys, and you gotta hate this one. This guy is particularly hateable. Right now, we got a very special guest here in the studio. With “this” I do mean special.Some idiots advanced their skills with music or numbers. Twelve-year-old James Kimura’s skill is spelling. Like a real life Rain Man. That’s right, Tracy. Here’s him winning the New Jersey State Spelling Bee. He did such a good job there that he gets to represent the state in the National's. And he joined us live right here in the Today Now Studios. James, good morning.Good morning to you. James, we’re both so proud of you. Yeah, when I won, I would like ‘Yes’!But James, tell us how do you get to be able to spell like that. My brain works normally, so I don’t, I can’t even find it.I study like two or three hours a day.What is going on in your brain right now? I think you can probably understand everything we’re saying but is it all jumbled up and maybe you see random colors and flashes and stuff like that.Oh, I don’t. I’m just…I’m fine. I understand your school has actually put you into a specialized institution… the gifted and talented program?Well, those are accelerated learning classes.Ah, is that what they’re calling now?Yeah.Well let’s take another look at you up on that big high stage.e-u-d-a-e-m-o-n-i-c, eudaemonic.That’s correct.Tracy, look at him in there. He may not be able to feed himself but he can spell the word I cannot even pronounce. Woo…I can feed myself. I am just fine. James, the other kids must be so cruel to you, aren't they?No, they treat me fine.Do they call your names? No, I’m fine. No, I bet they do.I bet they've really hurt your feelings.They never called my names.Well, James, do you know if your mother did a lot of drinking or had a drug problem while she was pregnant with you.No, she didn’t. She was fine.I really admire her strength in raising you. I mean I would have just tossed you in the gutter to end your agony. There’s nothing wrong with me. I’m just smart. Right. James , if you want to howl or pound your head against something, you just go ahead and do it.There’s nothing wrong with me. I’m just smart. You just do whatever you have to do.No, I’m just…I’m just smart.05/71035Men "less engaged in work than women"Men in Britain are less engaged in their work compared with women until the final years of employment when they get a late surge of enthusiasm, according to a survey.Men start off their careers at a much lower level of job satisfaction than women, only catching up shortly before they give up the commute and pick up their pension."One line of theory which I would like to look at more is that men have the Protestant ethic of going out to work to make money and not to enjoy it," Simon Easton, co-author of the report said.Women's engagement starts high, before dipping mid-career and then bouncing back, again shortly before retirement.The research carried out by Easton and Darren Van Laar, of the University of Portsmouth's psychology department and spin-out company QoWL, did not look into why there were changes in enthusiasm or explain the differences between the attitudes of men and women.But the pair said the research should encourage employers to hang on to older, more experienced workers who are generally more "engaged."It comes at a time when the British government is looking to speed up plans to raise retirement ages in a bid to rein in a record peacetime budget deficit.Van Laar also said the findings suggested employers could increase employee retention, get higher productivity and reduce absenteeism if they found ways to increase young men's engagement and satisfaction in the workplace.Employers could also try to better understand why women lose engagement at work mid-career, he said.The research quizzed 4,000 people at nine large educational organizations including academics, managers and cleaners as part of wider research into the quality of working life.Vocabulary:catch up: reach the point where one should be after a delay 赶上spin-out:附属的hang on to: 抓紧,保留rein in: 遏制absenteeism: the fact of being frequently away from work or school, especially without good reasons (经常性无故的)旷工,旷课背单词 — 装英语词汇201007/108032

U.S. President Barack Obama says to support economic growth, the government has to be willing to cut spending. He says lawmakers should lead by cutting back federal spending on local projects.美国总统奥巴马表示,为了持经济增长,政府必须缩减开。他说,议员们应当成为榜样,在地区性项目上减少联邦出。President Obama's weekly address to the nation comes as he concludes a trip to Asia aimed at opening up new, fast-growing markets for American products. He notes that the economic competition is fierce.奥巴马总统在结束亚洲行之际发表每周例行讲话。他到亚洲访问的目的是使新兴国家迅速增长的市场向美国产品打开大门。他指出,经济竞争是激烈的。"But as I've said many times, America doesn't play for second place," said President Obama. "The future we're fighting for isn't as the world's largest importer, consuming products made elsewhere, but as the world's largest manufacturer of ideas and goods sold around the world."他说:“但是正如我多次提及的那样,美国不甘屈居第二。我们所争取的未来并不是成为世界最大的进口国、消费在其它地方制造的产品,而是成为世界上产生理念与产品的最大的国家。”The U.S. president says in order to make the most of economic growth, the U.S. must reduce its budget deficit and cut spending.奥巴马总统说,为了尽快达到经济增长,美国必须减少财政赤字和减少出。The Republican opposition has repeatedly accused the administration of overspending. That message helped Republicans trounce President Obama's Democratic Party in recent Congressional elections.共和党反对派多次指责奥巴马出过度。这帮助了共和党人在最近的国会选举中战胜奥巴马的民主党。Now, the President says he is calling on Democratic and Republican lawmakers to show they are serious about reform, and to stop funding projects in their own local districts through so-called "earmarks" inserted into federal spending bills.现在,奥巴马正在呼吁民主党和共和党议员表现出他们对于改革的认真态度,停止为自己本地区的项目提供“指定用途资金”来增加联邦出。201011/118285
