When I was about 12 years old, I remember at Christmas one year being ashamed of how much I liked it because of all the presents I got. It's a pretty complicated thought for a 12 year old kid but I had it. I've always liked presents though. People send me a lot of things and I wish they wouldn't but I can't help liking them. Look at this - just a few of the things that have come in recently: this is a bottle of some kind of sauce. Now it's probably very good and from some one who likes me but it could be very bad and from someone who hates me too, so I don't dare eat it. Someone sent me this sports whistle. Why would anyone send me a whistle? The package says it's made of solid brass. It's triple plated and it has an extra sharp tone. Well good for it. But I certainly wouldn't want a whistle that was only double plated and made of brass that wasn't solid. This goes under a door to keep the draft out. Someone's idea of what John McCain and Barack Obama look like. Not my idea of what either of them look like but what do I know? "The American Government In Action" - this is a game. I never cared much for games. There's enough to play with in real life. "The Baseball Dictionary." This book has a lot more than I want to know about baseball. I'm a football fan. Baseball is too caught up with numbers for me. This is a pair of socks; I don't know who they’re for. They come up over my knees. I don’t know what these two bags are for - why would I want two of them anyway? This is called Almond Orange Honey. Seems like a good idea and the bees are certainly done a good job, but I never liked honey. I said I liked fudge and that I never got any good fudge anymore - I haven't had any good fudge in years - so a lot of people sent me good fudge. And I guess it's good. I haven't eaten all if it yet. I said I shine my own shoes. The letter that came with this stuff says it brings leather back to life. Nice to think about bringing leather back to life isn't it? I'll see if this brings my shoes back to life. I just hope my shoes don't eat my fudge.07/78634We know the fact is of a 8,000,000 deficit this year and the rest is sort of speculative, but, but can you see the US getting into a trillion dollar market and if so, how? Well, we’re, we’re obviously heading into a very difficult time for the US economically. You are gonna see a drop in tax receipts, you are gonna see, uh, pressure on the government to use money that’s aly been used to bailout Wall Street to help other, other constituencies in the US who’re also gonna be facing troubles. So if possible that we could see these numbers in fact…uh... Get to those sort of level Get to those levels I mean is the US of the opinion like most of the rest of the world, the best way to tackle a recession now is to spend very freely, the so called Keynesian Economic Theory. I think they are gonna have their hands tied, I mean you can spend a certain amount but on the other hand, aly we’ve got a massive budget deficit, we’ve got a huge amount of money that the US owes the rest of the world. So they can only go so far in trying to spend their way out of this recession. Ok. So as you point out, the US aly owes the rest of the world a huge amount of money. There’s a ten-trillion-dollar national debt. Perhaps up to a trillion dollars coming up. The government will finance that by selling basically treasuries to other countries. Why should those other countries buy them? Well, of course, the US is gonna be turning to the same usual suspects who have been buying US debt in the past. That’s gonna be China, Japan, investors in the Middle East. And the problem for them is that they are aly on the hook for a lot of US debt they have purchased in the past. And so they face, what some people have called “the financial balance of terror”. If you decide that you are not gonna buy, US debt going forward, you risk shooting yourself in the foot by devaluing the securities that you aly own. So in a sense you need to keep buying in order to keep your portfolio valuable for the future. On the other hand, the question may be at what price, what yield does the US government have to offer in order to attract these investors to continue financing the US deficit. Do you think there is a growing concern though in the international community, a government level, that after they’ve heard the president say I will half the national debt by the time I leave office and in fact it’s going completely the other way, it’s now a record deficit and ballooning, that the rest of the world loses their faith in the US government’s ability to manage its own finances. So therefore they are gonna be saying we don’t wanna go near this. Sure there is a, there is a real question of confidence that the government is gonna be facing, the new administration is gonna be facing when it comes into office and that will be a matter for the administration to address in terms of trying to bolster the confidence of investors, and in fact you have a new attitude, you have a resolution to try and address this. Nobody expects that the deficit is gonna to be balanced or addressed short-term because of the recession, but longer term, if people see and or at least have faith that the US is taking the right steps to address this longer term then that may that may do something to address some of these concerns. You talk about that sort of balance of year, that balance of fear, that if they stop buying it, the value of the US dollar will come down. But all the same countries like China and Japan have the bulk of their overseas foreign reserves in these US treasuries, 90% maybe, maybe a bit less. But isn’t it removed to bounce , why don’t they buy euros, why don’t they buy yen, why do they keep wanting to buy the US dollar if there are so many problems associated with US dollar. There have been discussions about this in the past and every once in a while you see a comment that suggests that China or Japan might be looking to diversify their exposure and opt to buying of euros or other currencies, and I doubt that you will see that go away. However on the other hand, what you’ve seen now with the financial crisis reaching Europe and the problems there and the need for governments to go in and bail out the banking system there with Europe now in a recession and possibly getting into a very serious one in the next year. What that says is that Europe may not necessarily be as much of a safer bet than the dollar Bet them at what you know Right. 11/89412BLISS sps across Lalo’s face as his glossy black locks are blown dry by cooing stylists. Dogs big and small are beautified for 100 pesos (.70) in the back of a perspex-walled van run by Fluffy Shower, a mobile pet-salon that visits Mexico City’s posh neighbourhoods to apply shampoo and ribbons to upper-class animals. The sharpest dogs sport green, white and red jerseys to mark Independence Day on September 16th. Next month pet boutiques will sell Halloween pumpkin outfits and dainty witches’ hats.当宠物美容师一边哄着Lalo,一边吹干它乌黑亮丽的卷毛的时候,Lalo的脸上洋溢着幸福。在塑胶墙面的货车厢里,无论大还是小,美容费都是每只100比索(合约7.7美元)。这辆车是一家名叫Fluffy Shower的流动宠物沙龙的,现在正在墨西哥城的富裕地区巡游,出售高级宠物的香波和链条。最引人注目的穿着绿色、白色和红色的运动衫,在9月16日庆祝独立日。下个月宠物精品店还会推出万圣节南瓜装和精致的女巫帽。 Pet care is booming in emerging markets, as the growing middle class stops buying dogs for security (or dinner) and starts doting on them. Nowhere has the fashion taken off as quickly as in Latin America. In the past five years spending on pet food and knick-knacks has risen by 44%, to billion, according to Euromonitor, a market-research firm, which estimates that Chile has more pet dogs per person than any other country. Latin pets may be the world’s most fashionable. As Mexico’s rainy season tails off, dogs are stepping out of designer shoes to show off painted claws.中产阶级买不再是为了保卫或者食用,而是为了当作宠物,因此宠物保养在新兴国家市场正蓬勃发展。而这种时尚在拉丁美洲的发展是最快的。根据一家市场研究公司欧睿的调查,过去五年中,宠物食品和玩具的开销增长了44%,达到了110亿美元。该公司估计,智利是人均拥有宠物数量最多的国家。拉美的宠物应该是世界上最时尚的,随着墨西哥的雨季渐渐结束,们脱掉时尚鞋子,开始显摆它们的染色的爪子。Rising incomes allow Latinos to treat mutts as members of the family. More young people are living alone and putting off marriage, choosing pets for company instead. These “pet parents” indulge their animals as if they were children, says Emily Woon, Euromonitor’s pet-care supremo, who reports that Latin America has been the “star market” of recent years. Latinos are especially fond of dogs, which are costlier than cats, but superior in every respect. Whereas in Europe the dog- and cat-food markets are equal, in Latin America dog food outsells cat food by nearly six to one.随着收入的增加,拉美人渐渐把们当成家庭成员了。越拉越多的独身年轻人推迟婚姻,选择宠物作为自己的伴侣。欧睿宠物保养权威人士艾米丽·伍恩说,这些“宠物爸妈”们对宠物们溺爱地像自己的孩子一样。据她所说,近年来,拉美已经成了“明星市场”了。拉美人特别喜欢,尽管养比养猫要贵,但是在各方面都比养猫好。在欧洲,猫食品市场份额相等,但在拉美,粮的销售差不多是猫粮的六倍。There is room for growth. Many Latinos still feed their pets table scraps: three-quarters of Mexican hounds make do with leftover bits of burrito. Billboards around Mexico City’s parks urge owners to switch to Pedigree and other brands of delicious packaged pet food.这个市场还有扩大的空间。许多拉美人还是在用剩饭剩菜来喂宠物:四分之三的墨西哥猎犬都在吃墨西哥玉米煎饼的残渣。墨西哥城的公园里到处都是广告牌,力劝宠物的主人改用宝路或者其他名牌包装的可口宠物食品。Glitzy pet superstores, which account for more than a fifth of pet-product sales in America and Canada, barely exist south of the Rio Grande. The most popular outlets are still small, independent pet shops, which retain customers by offering credit. But the superstores will come. And when Latin animal-lovers can buy a full range of food, toys and veterinary services in one place, life could become even more luxurious for Mexico’s privileged pets.在美国和加拿大,琳琅满目的宠物超市占了宠物产品销售量的五分之一以上,而在格兰德河以南却十分罕见。最流行的经销店还是规模小、单独的宠物商店,并通过赊购来保留客户。但是大型超市还是会出现的,如果拉美的动物爱好者在同一个地方购买所有宠物食品、玩具和医用护理设备,那么墨西哥高级宠物们的生活将会更加奢华。 201110/156055

Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian man who admits to killing 77 people last month, allegedly contributed to a range of online neo-Nazi, nationalist and anti-Islam forums. Now the European Union’s criminal intelligence agency, Europol, is launching a special investigation into non-Islamist extremism in Scandinavia.承认上个月杀死77人的挪威男子布雷维克据称在互联网上的一些新纳粹、民族主义和反伊斯兰论坛发表言论。现在,欧盟的刑事情报机构欧洲刑警组织正在对北欧的非伊斯兰极端组织进行一次特别调查。Ideas sping through InternetReginald Peters runs the online blog of the anti-Islam group, the English Defence League, and posts on its forums.雷金纳德.彼得斯在网上开了一个反伊斯兰组织的客,名叫捍卫英语联盟,并且在这个论坛上发表文章。He says the Internet is a good way to sp his ideas. "We no longer really communicate by letter, by concrete mail as such. So this is the only way for people to communicate with other people who agree with them or if they don’t agree with them," Peters said.他说,互联网是传播他的思想的一种良好的途径。他说:“我们不再通过写信,通过有形的邮件进行联系。因此,互联网是人们相互交流的唯一方式,无论他们是否同意对方的观点都是如此。”The English Defence League stages street protests against what it calls the Islamification of Britain.“捍卫英语联盟”发起街头抗议活动,反对它所称的英国的伊斯兰化。It has been in the spotlight since Norwegian Anders Behring Breivik claimed to have links with the group, which it denies.自从挪威的布雷维克声称他与这个组织有联系以来,捍卫英语联盟就成为公众注意的中心。不过,该组织否认布雷维克的说法。Breivik admits to carrying out the terror attacks in Norway last month that left 77 people dead.布雷维克承认,他上个月在挪威进行了恐怖袭击,造成77人死亡。Just before the attack, he posted a 1,500-page, anti-Islam manifesto online.就在那次袭击之前,他在网上发表了1500页的反伊斯兰宣言。201108/147344

US Praises Pakistani Efforts to Recruit Tribes Against Militants美称赞巴征召部落民兵打击塔利班 The top U.S. diplomat for South Asia is praising Pakistan's efforts to recruit local militias against Taliban and al-Qaida fighters in the country's volatile tribal regions. 美国负责南亚事务的高级外交官称赞巴基斯坦在动荡的部落地区征召当地民兵打击塔利班和基地组织的武装分子。Assistant Secretary of State Richard Boucher said his conversations with Pakistani officials had focused on efforts to convince more people to join the fight against militants and extremist groups. He said he had been encouraged by the government's increased use of tribal militias known as lashkars. 美国助理国务卿包润石表示,他和巴基斯坦官员的交谈集中在如何说更多人加入对抗激进分子和极端组织的问题。他说,巴基斯坦不断增加使用部落民兵,这使他受到鼓舞。In Bajaur, where Pakistani security forces have been battling al-Qaida and Taliban militants since August, Army spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said nearly 10,000 militia fighters from 3 local tribes have turned against the militants.  巴基斯坦安全部队8月份起就在巴焦尔对抗基地组织和塔利班武装分子,部队发言人阿巴斯少将在巴焦尔说,当地3个部落的将近1万名民兵已经转而反对激进分子。"These tribes, since they know these areas and locations in detail, they have also earmarked the houses of the militants. So wherever they require the support of the military, say by fire or physical engagement, the military responds to that," he said. 他说:“这些部落熟悉这些区域和地点的具体细节,他们还把激进分子的房屋做了标记。不管他们在哪里需要政府军队的持,例如火药或士兵直接交战,政府军队就会对他们的要求作出反应。”Tribes joining the government face fierce reprisals from militants. Boucher said in the past 6 months 100 to 200 tribal leaders have been killed by militants seeking to undermine the movement.  部落和政府合作使他们面临武装分子强烈的报复。包润石说,激进分子为了破坏部落和政府合作的行动,在过去6个月内,已经杀害了大约有1百到2百名部落领导人。The U.S. diplomat also discussed efforts to modernize Pakistan's military and government to fight against terrorism. He said there are ongoing efforts to use American military trainers to teach paramilitary forces operating in the tribal regions. 包润石还谈到为了打击恐怖主义如何使巴基斯坦军队和政府现代化的问题。他说,有关方面还在努力使用美军训练人员教授准军事部队如何在部落地区开展行动。Meanwhile, Pakistan's military said it is continuing to question 168 foreigners who were arrested near the northwestern town Darra Adam Khel in recent days. The military said it suspects many of the detainees, most of whom are believed to be from Uzbekistan and Afghanistan, are militants. 同时,巴基斯坦军方表示,他们仍在继续审讯最近在西北城镇达拉.阿达姆.海勒镇被逮捕的168个外国人。军方说,这些人中的大多来自乌兹别克和阿富汗,他们怀疑其中很多是激进分子。200810/53449

Just one month before the 2010 midterm elections, a new public opinion poll shows that Arab-American voters favor Democrats over Republicans by a wide margin. The survey also finds that discrimination against Arab Americans appears to be on the rise.在2010年美国中期选举即将举行的一个月之前完成的一项新的民意测验显示,阿拉伯裔美国选民大都持民主党。这项民意测验还发现,对阿拉伯裔美国人的歧视似乎呈上升趋势。Americans go to the polls next month to cast their votes against during a time of continued economic distress and unresolved conflicts across the Middle East. Arab Americans, once considered a political swing group, are now solidly in the Democratic camp, according to the new survey by Zogby International, which was sponsored by the Arab American Institute.美国人下个月初将参加中期选举投票。在中期选举来临之际,美国的经济困境依然在继续,中东地区的冲突依然没有解决。阿拉伯裔美国人一度被认为是政坛上的摇摆群体,但这项由阿拉伯裔美国人研究所“左格比国际”主办的新的民意测验显示,阿拉伯裔现在明显地摆向民主党的阵营。Favoring DemocratsJames Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, points to foreign policy and civil rights as major reasons for the community's support of the Democratic party.该研究所的所长詹姆斯·左格比表示,外交政策以及公民权利问题是导致阿拉伯裔美国人持民主党的主要原因。"It is not the party that made the war in Iraq. It is not the party that supported the devastation of Lebanon. It is not the party that supported and wrote the PATRIOT act and supported the abuse of civil liberties," says Zogby他说:“民主党不是发动伊拉克战争的党,不是持毁坏黎巴嫩的党,不是持和起草爱国者法、持践踏公民自由的党。”The survey shows that Arab-Americans support Democrats two-to-one over Republicans on national security, fighting terrorism and the economy. On the issue of civil liberties, the margin is three-to-one in favor of the Democrats. 在国家安全和打击恐怖主义的问题上,阿拉伯裔美国人以二比一的比率持民主党而不是共和党;在经济问题上,阿拉伯裔美国人以二比一的比率持民主党;在公民自由问题上,阿拉伯裔美国人以三比一的比率持民主党。The survey was conducted during the last week of September, following weeks of controversy over plans by a Muslim group to build an Islamic cultural center and mosque - called Park 51 - near the site of the World Trade Center. 这项民意调查是在9月最后一个星期进行的。在此之前的几个星期,一个穆斯林团体在纽约世界贸易中心旧址附近建设一个伊斯兰文化中心和清真寺的计划引起了争议。Many opponents of the project were conservative Republicans, who said building a mosque there would be insensitive to the families of those killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks. Zogby says that reinforced Arab-Americans' tendency to lean toward the Democrats. 很多持反对意见的人是保守派共和党人。他们说,在那里建设一所清真寺伤害那些在伊斯兰恐怖主义团体基地组织发动的9/11袭击中死亡的死者家属的感情。左格比表示,这种局面加强了大多数阿拉伯裔美国人持民主党的倾向。201010/116111
