機車

People like to say "機車" in Taiwan when they met something make them angry. In Taiwan, there are many dirty words which be say out by people when they have bad mood.

In America, we usually heard people say "shit" when something or someone makes them angry. The word "機車" is came from a Taiwanese dirty word. This word is very dirty and impolite , it means women's organ. So some people change this dirty word to "機車" which has the same tone for first word.

We can't translate "機車" to English since the English word of "機車" is motorcycle. "機車" in Taiwan means very angry but "motorcycle" is not a emotional word. They're different words.

Translation--"A Charlie Brown Christmas" Part 2

31
00:04:45,698 --> 00:04:48,974
- 有什麼需要我幫忙嗎?
-我現在很悲傷

32
00:04:49,274 --> 00:04:53,918
等一下,在我們開始之前, 請先付錢. 五分錢, 謝謝.

33
00:04:58,794 --> 00:05:05,042
Hey, 你聽! 我最喜歡聽這種硬幣發出的叮噹聲.

34
00:05:05,342 --> 00:05:11,285
多麼美. 多麼美的事物. 叮噹, 叮噹, 叮噹.
多麼美麗悅耳的硬幣叮噹聲啊.

35
00:05:12,401 --> 00:05:15,652
好了, 開始吧. 你的問題是什麼?

36
00:05:16,627 --> 00:05:20,553
我覺得很沮喪. 我知道我應該要快樂, 可是我沒辦法.

37
00:05:20,853 --> 00:05:27,519
正如同電視上說的,當你發現你需要幫忙的時候正意味著情況還不至於太超過...

38
00:05:27,819 --> 00:05:33,045
我覺得我們最好針對你的恐懼對症下藥. 如果我們可以找到你害怕什麼, 我們可以把它標示出來.

39
00:05:33,345 --> 00:05:40,011
你害怕負責嗎? 如果是的話, 那你有對責任的被誇大或非理性恐懼的病.
我不覺得是這個.

40
00:05:40,311 --> 00:05:46,513
那怕貓嗎? 如果你怕貓的話, 那你有恐貓症.
有一點, 但我不是很確定.

41
00:05:46,813 --> 00:05:51,157
你害怕樓梯嗎? 如果是的話, 那你有懼高症.

42
00:05:51,457 --> 00:05:57,844
說不定你有懼怕海洋症. 就是怕海, 或是你有對過橋非理性恐懼的病, 就是怕過橋.

43
00:05:58,144 --> 00:06:02,024
說不定你有皆恐症. 你覺得你有嗎?

44
00:06:02,324 --> 00:06:05,017
什麼是皆恐症?
就是你對什麼都感到恐懼.

45
00:06:05,853 --> 00:06:07,293
就是這個!

46
00:06:08,779 --> 00:06:12,519
其實, 露西, 我的問題是聖誕節. 我只是不知道什麼是聖誕節.

47
00:06:12,819 --> 00:06:15,538
取代快樂的是我感覺有點低潮.

48
00:06:15,838 --> 00:06:20,042
你需要有參與感. 你需要參與一些聖誕節的實際活動.

49
00:06:20,342 --> 00:06:22,922
你想當我們聖誕表演的導演嗎?

50
00:06:23,222 --> 00:06:26,890
我? 你要我當聖誕表演的導演?

51
00:06:28,051 --> 00:06:31,699
對啊, 查理布朗. 我們需要一位導演, 需要你的參與.

52
00:06:31,999 --> 00:06:35,971
我們已經有牧羊人, 樂手, 動物, 你需要的都有.

53
00:06:36,271 --> 00:06:39,151
我們甚至有聖誕皇后.

54
00:06:40,219 --> 00:06:42,473
我不懂得怎麼導聖誕節的表演.

55
00:06:42,773 --> 00:06:46,467
不要擔心, 我會在旁邊協助你. 我在禮堂等你喔.

56
00:06:46,767 --> 00:06:53,965
順道一提, 我可以體會你對聖誕節這些事感到沮喪的感覺. 因為我每年都會這樣.

57
00:06:54,336 --> 00:07:01,024
我從來不知道我真正想要什麼? 我總是得到一些很笨的玩具或是一台單車, 一些衣服或有的沒的.

58
00:07:01,767 --> 00:07:04,231
-你要的是什麼?
-真實的身份.

59
00:07:19,600 --> 00:07:21,318
怎麼了?

60
00:07:22,850 --> 00:07:25,708
這是什麼? "去找到聖誕節的真是意思是什麼"?

61
00:07:26,008 --> 00:07:33,928
"獲得財富, 財富,財富"? "壯觀的超級巨大的耶誕燈展示比賽"...

62
00:07:34,228 --> 00:07:38,222
燈和展示比賽? 喔, 不!

63
00:07:39,662 --> 00:07:44,027
我的狗狗迷失在商業的行為中. 我無法忍受. 喔!

64
00:07:46,163 --> 00:07:52,644
老兄, 我一直在找你. 你願意幫我寫信給聖淘克勞斯先生嗎?

65
00:07:52,944 --> 00:07:58,479
不過, 我沒有很多時間. 我開始想像我很認真對待去禮堂導演聖誕節表演的事.

66
00:07:58,749 --> 00:08:03,836
-我跟你說我想說什麼, 你幫我寫下.
-好, 開始吧.

67
00:08:04,136 --> 00:08:08,733
親愛的聖淘克勞斯先生, 你最近過的如何? 有沒有渡過一個很棒的夏天啊?

68
00:08:09,569 --> 00:08:10,662
你的太太她好嗎?

69
00:08:10,962 --> 00:08:18,300
-我今年過的特別好, 所以我列了很多我想要的禮物.
-喔, 老兄!

70
00:08:19,089 --> 00:08:23,526
請注意每個項目的大小和顏色, 然後盡可能的寄越多越好.

71
00:08:23,826 --> 00:08:31,374
如果太複雜的話, 你可以簡單一點直接寄錢給我. 十個或二十個如何?

72
00:08:31,674 --> 00:08:36,297
十或二十? 喔, 我的小妹妹...

73
00:08:36,597 --> 00:08:41,195
我要的是我得到什麼. 而我又付出了什麼.

74
00:08:55,777 --> 00:09:03,743
-好了, 大家安靜. 我們的導演隨時都會來這裡然後我們就要開始彩排啦.
-導演? 什麼導演?

75
00:09:04,043 --> 00:09:07,272
- 查理布朗啊!
-喔 不, 我們注定失敗!

76
00:09:07,572 --> 00:09:10,266
這一定會是一個有始以來最遭的聖誕節表演.

77
00:09:10,823 --> 00:09:14,399
他來了! 大家注意, 這是我們的導演!

78
00:09:19,786 --> 00:09:22,108
男生們的好朋友.

79
00:09:23,966 --> 00:09:28,588
好, 非常高興看到大家都在這邊. 你們知道的, 我們將要上演一齣聖誕節表演.

80
00:09:28,888 --> 00:09:31,839
我們要用最短的時間, 做最有效率的事.

81
00:09:32,139 --> 00:09:36,808
對導演而言的第一件事就是要確保有一個很棒的表演.

82
00:09:37,108 --> 00:09:43,171
我會用一個簡單的動作. 如果我指向右邊, 表示大家都要把目光焦點放在舞台右邊.

83
00:09:43,471 --> 00:09:47,489
如果我做了一個很大的動作穿越我的喉嚨, 表示要減短這一段.

84
00:09:47,789 --> 00:09:51,715
如果我旋轉我的頭, 就表示要注意節奏.

85
00:09:52,015 --> 00:09:55,431
如果我延展我的手, 就表示速度要放慢.

86
00:09:55,731 --> 00:10:00,771
這是表演者應有的價值. 這表示他們是很注意導演的.

87
00:10:01,071 --> 00:10:03,904
我這樣對嗎? 我說, 我這樣對嗎?

Homework

Subject: Imagine that you are a manager at a large insurance company. You find out that very soon everyone who applies to your company for health insurance will be given a genetic test to determine how likely they are to develop a genetic illness. The test will tell you which people are most likely to develop a serious genetic disease in the future. In an e-mail to the other managers of company, explin why you agree or disagree with this use of genetic testing.


-----------------------------
Hi all managers,

I heard everyone who applies to our company for health insurance will be given a genetic test to determine how likely they are to develop a genetic illness. I disagree it since everyone has his own human rights. We can't abridge their human rights.

Although the test will tell us which people are most likely to develop a serious genetic disease in the future and then we can decide if they can apply to our company for health insurance or not, or if we need to raise their insurance fee or not. We still can't do it since insurance company and people who insure to our company all need to take the risk. People who has illness need insurance's protection more than healthy people. It's not fair to do genetic test for anyone.

On the other hand to think about this thing, if I need to do genetic test before I insure and I will give up to insure since I don't like to know I will have illness in the future in advance. Insurance is existed to protect the people who "live"; if someone died, insurance can protect his family.

Please consider to abolish this policy from now on. Let insurance to protect everyone, no matter he is poor, rich, illness or healthy. Thanks!

Regards,

Karen

What is your favorite room in your home and why?

Home is a very important place because it can bring comfortable and warmth for us. Everyone has a home, home is a harbour of refuge for people when they get any troubles. Fortunately, I have my own sweet house and it follows my instructions to design. Now I would like to introduce my house!

My house has five rooms; they're living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and study.

This is living room which is including nice and warm light, a very comfortable sofa, glass table and a 37" LCD TV. I usually like to lie on the sofa and watch TV when I come home. Everyone likes to lie on my sofa when they come to my home. The big LCD TV is the gift given by my brother to celebret the housewarming, it's really a good present.

Although I'm seldom cooking, kitchen is necessary for me. When I don't want to go outside, it is convenient to cook some simple meals.

My house also has two balconies, one is viewing balcony and the other is working balcony. If my friends visit to me, I will put desk and chairs at balcony. We can have a coffee or tea and chat each other. That's really a beautiful live!



This is my bedroom, it's very simple and only has a wardrobe, a bed and two cabinets. I hope it's just a warm sleeping room, so I didn't put desk and bookcase in it.



My favorite room is study. It doesn't has wall in the front, whole glass wall is instead of brick wall and whole glass door is instead of wood door. In this room, there is a bookcase on the left side and a big window on the back side. I like this room since it is a multi-functional room. Usually it is a study but when I play guitar, it becomes a music room; when I do exercise inside, it becomes a gym; when friends visit, it becomes another bedroom.

Actually, it is a desirable house and I love it very much. Hey guys, welcome to my home!

Guitar Club mini concert

Last time I said, the guitar club will be close after the mini concert on 11/10. But after the concert, each club member decided to keep running the club. The purpose of this concert is going to be showed our achievements. Although some of the members are beginners, everyone really did good job in this concert.

I would like to share a special show here. Before this concert, I would like to perform a song which is called" 香格里拉". This song is mentioned everyone has a dream, but we need to keep going on and never give up. Then, we can let our dreams come true. I would like to encourage our members, more and more people didn't go to guitar club any more that is because this is a company. Everyone is busy on the job and doesn't have more time to practice, so they didn't come any more. If we still love guitar, why we need to close guitar club? We'll wait for anyone who want to learn guitar to join us.

I prepared a film that is included many pictures, events from beginning to now and I didn't tell anyone. I want to awaken team member's memories and also want to let everybody know join guitar club is very very happy. When I performed this song, we turned off the light and performed with this film in the corner of stage. It seems everyone like this kind of performance, my effort is worthful.

There are over 30 people to join this concert and 7-8 people want to join guitar club. We're happy because it seems guitar club relives again!

Timmy



He is my nephew, his name is Timmy.

He is 5 years old and study in kindergarten now. Last week was Halloween, they have a party. He disguised as Batman. These fittings was making by his mother.

I think kids study in school and the busiest are parents.
Looking his facial expression! So cute...Right?
