To protect celebrities from the photographers who hound them, the mayor of Malibu has made a decision. “All professional photographers who want to take photos of celebrities in Malibu must be licensed. The license will cost ,000 a year,” said Mayor Eddie Arnold. “I know that sounds like a lot, but these people can make a lot of money off one photo.”In fact, a recent photo of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s new baby sold for million. They had contracted with a magazine for the photo, and then donated the money to a charity for children. A couple of years before that, a photo of Brad and Angelina walking along an African beach sold for 0,000. So celebrity photos, contracted or candid, can make a photographer wealthy. But the stalking that goes on can make a celebrity crazy; recently, an actor punched out a photographer.Stalking can be dangerous to the public, too. Recently, paparazzi in nine different cars chased after Britney Spears as she left a friend's house to go to a nearby restaurant. The driver of one car, intent on beating his competitors, struck a man in a crosswalk. The man was taken to the hospital with two broken legs. Nobody took his photo.That accident prompted the mayor’s decision. The very cost of the license, he said, would reduce the number of photographers who hang around in Malibu. “Good riddance,” said one restaurant owner. “Some of them hang around my restaurant every Saturday. They never buy lunch or dinner. They just use my rest room all day long.”The paparazzi, of course, were angry. “We’re just little people trying to make a buck,” said Ansel Adams. “Most of us never have big paydays. Malibu should collect the ,000 only if we actually sell a photo.” Article/201108/150531I’m hopeless at giving directions. I get very confused. I’m sure I send people in totally the wrong direction. For some reason, I always get stopped for directions in the street. I can usually direct someone if it’s just a block or two, but that’s it. If it’s half way across town, I’ll send you in the opposite direction, guaranteed. The funniest thing is asking for directions in another language. I’m pretty good at saying where I want to go, but when I receive the directions, I understand nothing. I nod my head and smile and say “thank you very much”. The person walks away thinking I understood the directions. I’m impressed by people who can give directions from one town to another. They must have a map inside their head! Article/201104/131790Digital cameras are so useful. I love my digital camera. I take it everywhere with me. My friends think I’m mad, but I’ve got thousands of really good photos. Digital cameras are so much better than the old cameras with film. They’re also much better than mobile phone cameras. My digital camera fits in my pocket and takes great photos. I usually take a few photos every day and then put them online for my friends to see. The best thing about digital cameras is that they are so easy to use. It’s child’s play. The good thing is that digital cameras today give the same quality photos as you could only get on really expensive cameras. All you need is 10 to 12 megapixels. That’s more than enough. Article/201104/131789When mum had told my Nan, and they'd had a good cry together, we got in the car and went up to the hospital. Surprisingly, I didn't feel sad or upset, just strangely numb. When we got there, I didn't want to see the body, so I sat in the relatives’ room. I tried to make sense of what had happened the previous night, rather than think about my granddad. But my thoughts kept returning to him, for some reason. Had it been him last night? Trying to tell me something?  Once back at my Nan’s, everyone was silent, no one wanted to do anything. Dad a book quietly, Nan sat and sobbed to her, mum went to fetch some chips from the chippy, and I listened to my music.  Later, after dinner, I was in the kitchen, washing up. I had just put the last plate away, and was walking from the room when the fridge began to rattle. I know appliances sometimes rattle and make a little noise as they work, but this wasn't a gentle rattle, it sounded like all the stuff was getting thrown around inside it. I stood, paralyzed, as the phenomenon subsided, then slowly left the room, never turning my back on that fridge. We stayed a couple more days, nothing else weird happened, and I began to relax a little. We got home, and were glad to be there. My parents were still a bit upset about my grandfather, but they were doing ok. It was late, so we all went upstairs and went to bed, without anyone saying anything to the others.

Written by Jill Moss (MUSIC)VOICE ONE:I‘m Barbara Klein. VOICE TWO:And I’m Steve Ember with People in America in VOA Special English. Today we tell about a writer who helped influence modern culture. Her name was Susan Sontag.(MUSIC)VOICE ONE:Susan Sontag was considered one of the most influential liberal thinkers in the ed States during the twentieth century. She wrote seventeen books. They have been translated into thirty languages. They include novels, short stories, essays and film scripts. She was also a filmmaker, playwright and theater director. And she was a human rights and anti-war activist. She was said to own fifteen thousand books in her personal library in her home. She was born Susan Rosenblatt in New York City in nineteen thirty-three. Her father, Jack Rosenblatt, was a trader in China. Susan’s mother spent most of her time in China with her husband. Family members raised Susan and her younger sister, Judith, when they were very young. When Susan was five, her father died of tuberculosis. Her mother returned from China and moved the girls to Tucson, Arizona. There, Missus Rosenblatt met Nathan Sontag. The couple married and the family moved to Los Angeles, California. VOICE TWO:Susan Sontag was an extremely intelligent child. She could by age three. She finished high school at the age of fifteen. Two years later, Susan completed her college education at the University of Chicago in Illinois. While at the university, she attended a class taught by Philip Rieff. He was a twenty-eight year old expert on human society and social relationships. The two were married in nineteen fifty, ten days after they first met. Susan was seventeen years old. The couple moved to Boston, Massachusetts. In nineteen fifty-two, they had a son, David. He grew up to become a writer and the editor of his mother’s works. VOICE ONE:Susan Sontag completed two master’s degrees from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The first was in English; the second was in philosophy. She also began a doctorate program in religion at Oxford University in England. However, she never completed that program. Susan and Philip ended their marriage in nineteen fifty-eight. Several months later, Susan moved with her son to New York City. She held several jobs teaching at universities and writing. VOICE TWO:Susan Sontag began her professional life writing creative literature. She published her first book in nineteen sixty-three. It was an experimental novel called “The Benefactor.” It examined dreams and how people think. Four years later, she published her second novel, called “Death Kit.” The story included sharp criticism of the ed States involvement in the Vietnam War.Sontag wrote several books of creative literature. Yet, she became famous for her critical essays that examined different kinds of social and artistic issues. She wrote serious studies about popular art forms. She wrote essays about books, movies and photography. She also wrote essays about sickness. VOICE ONE:In nineteen sixty-four, she wrote an essay called “Notes on Camp.” It was an immediate success that made her famous. Camp is a form of art or popular culture that is humorous because it is purposely bad, false or common. In the essay, Sontag argued that a piece of art may be bad yet considered good if it creates emotional feelings in the person looking at it. The essay also included the idea about popular culture that something can be “so bad it is good.” “Notes on Camp” is still widely today. Article/200803/30119

“那你说喝酒就不太礼貌了。”爱丽丝气愤地说。 “你没受到邀请就坐下来,也是不太礼貌的。”三月兔回敬她。 `Have some wine,' the March Hare said in an encouraging tone. Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. `I don't see any wine,' she remarked. `There isn't any,' said the March Hare. `Then it wasn't very civil of you to offer it,' said Alice angrily. `It wasn't very civil of you to sit down without being invited,' said the March Hare. `I didn't know it was YOUR table,' said Alice; `it's laid for a great many more than three.' `Your hair wants cutting,' said the Hatter. He had been looking at Alice for some time with great curiosity, and this was his first speech. Article/201101/124766
