English to Thai: Chapter 1 - Millionaire Mind
Source text - English They live in lovely homes located in fine neighborhoods. Balance is their approach to life. They are financially independent, yet they enjoy life - they are not Wall work, no play" type of people. Most became millionaires in one generation. Neither their lifestyle nor their wealth was generated from being highly leveraged financially. They are not credit junkies. How did they accomplish this? How did they balance their need to become wealthy and economically productive with their need to enjoy life? They have the millionaire mind.
Early in my carreer of studying wealthy people, I had a glimpse of this segment of the millionaire population. In 1983 I was asked to interview sixty millionaires from Oklahoma. What I learned from them was simple, yet the message had a lasting impact on me: You cannot enjoy life if you are addicted to consumption and the use of credit. These Oklahoma millionaires were just the opposite, as demonstrated by one focus group of ten. All ten were seasoned business owners, executives, or professionals. All were first-generation wealthy. Some were credit-dependent earlier in their careers, but they eventually saw the light. They went cold turnkey, breaking the cycle of borrowing to consume, earning to consume, and borrowing more and more money. Others never became addicted to credit or the need to display their success.
Source text - English Where does electricity come from?
Electricity that we get at home is produced by electric generators. These are huge machines with coils that have to be rotated to produce electricity.
1. Most electricity today is generated by burning fossil fuel such as coal or natural gas. It is used to boil water and produce steam. The steam is then used to drive a turbine. The turbine drives the coils of an electric generator.
2. In a hydroelectric power station the force of flowing water rotates a turbine which turns the coils of a generator to generate electricity.
3. In wind farms, wind mills use the energy of strong winds to turn the coils of a generator to generate electricity.
4. The energy of sea water rushing up and down at high and low tides is also used to generate electricity. This is called tidal energy.
The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) operates several types of power plants across the country. Electricity is generated by power generators in power stations. From the power stations, electricity travels through thick wires called cable to our homes and factories. Electricity is supplied to homes through power points.
Electrical appliances work only when they are plugged into power points and switched on.
