好 片 重 温

此经典影片 (70 年代)描述美国新闻媒体对社会的看守监察角色,是现代新闻系学生必看的参考电影。

对于国际时事新闻翻译也会有帮助。

Assignment: China Mar 3, 2016





Richard Nixon’s visit to China in February 1972 changed the course of history;
it was also a milestone in the world of journalism.

Funny comments Mar 3, 2016

Thanks Q.

Some funny comments by the then US journalists while covering Nixon's visit in Peking as follows:

-》 Long johns - Imagine, we wear long johns and work in those over-heated halls.

-》 No jokes - For example, I asked them (the Chinese), "Do you have jokes?"

-》 Tea - I asked for boiling water for my contact lenses, but they gave me tea.

-》 We all may die - I often woke up early to work on the footage and one day I woke up at 5:30, the Chinese minders came over and said, "If you keep on waking up this early, we will all die."

Magical lanterns show in the United Kingdom Mar 3, 2016

One of the final comments of the then US journalists is that China is a Magic Kingdom.

Here's the spectacular Magical Lanterns Show being held in the United Kingdom that originates from the Magic Kingdom.

定义不同 Mar 8, 2016

你所谓的歪楼其实并非歪楼,只不过看起来似乎 upside down 而已。看来,你对歪楼的定义与众不同。下面这楼才算歪楼呢:

不过,此歪楼不会倒。我相信更会有人喜欢住这种房子。所以,不必惊慌,免得吓跑住户与观光客。

这倒是一种独特的造型。不过在里面居住,恐怕难以适应。不但要在楼梯上爬上爬下,而且走路一不小心就会碰头。

塔歪了倒不可怕 - Tiger Hill Pagoda Mar 9, 2016

Leaning Towers

我有次回国去苏州旅游,因时间有限,就参加了某旅行社的一日游。据称,旅游日程包括虎丘塔,但等上了路导游才说,因虎丘塔倾斜得厉害,虎丘公园已经关闭。结果,他让司机在高速公路旁违章停了几分钟,让游客在车上远远眺望、照几张相就算完事。这还算不了什么。他还把大家带到苏州某工艺品商店。一位自称老总的人,出来忽悠了一番,说他爷爷曾参加驻缅远征军,后来就在缅甸开始从事翡翠玉石生意。他为了给他爷爷祈福,就给大家优惠价。当时我颇为他的孝心所感动,同时又想,回美国时总得给孩子们带些什么礼物,就买了些翡翠玉石之类的小饰件。当时,有位旅友一再悄悄地告诫我当心受骗。后经我亲戚鉴定,那些物件虽不是什么假货,但却属于所谓 B 货。难怪亲戚们说我们在国外丧失了“免疫力”。

后来我在网上发现,这种骗子多得很。那老总的忽悠手法与此网页上的描写大同小异、如出一辙:
http://zhidao.baidu.com/question/274693243.html?qbl=relate_question_0

出现这种骗子并不奇怪。奇怪的是,尽管投诉者众多,有关政府部门却根本不管。所以,大家以后出外旅游时须十分小心。我谨在此给也缺乏“免疫力”的朋友打打预防针。

That reminds me of one of the episodes of "Keeping up Appearances".

Hyacinth wants to put on airs by getting a place in the country, but all she and Richard could afford is an attic apartment in an old country mansion.

attic apartment Mar 9, 2016

Steve,

看来,有不少美国人也住在这样拥挤的阁楼间里。估计在纽约就有不少这样的阁楼间。在上海,也有很多这样的斜顶阁楼间,还有利用楼梯下空间的楼梯间。

有些房子看起来很简陋,却价格不菲:

我觉得建筑顶层的几何形状(据说是代表树杈)看起来有点头重脚轻,但建筑的主体不是歪的。我还是更喜欢横平竖直,简单流畅对称的东西。

歪,噢,why Mar 10, 2016

这些工具有直也有歪的,在某些 “歪” 楼里可能派用场。

以下悦耳的音乐有更多 “歪” 。

Why, Oh Why, Oh Why - Gilbert O'Sullivan

Why - Carly Simon

不过,看来看去,那些所謂歪楼的高度应该有限制,盖不高吧 (包括鹿特丹的 Cube House)。世界最高最大的楼都是笔直的。(看下图)
