  • 探索世界奥秘之Life Story(生命物语) 13(Come on, let's talk about sex, baby, let's talk about you and me, let's talk about...) When it comes to growing up, 12-year-old Beatrice will ride the roller coaster of puberty. (let's talk about sex, let's talk about you and me...)When you are a teenager, apparently you go bolshy, you get your periods, you get pubic hair. You get taller, you get, er, sort of, er, you go wide at the hips, I think it is, I can't remember. It's painful to run. I wanna tell you that because what happens up above, you have to start wearing a bra, sorry. (I) have to mention that, it gets really painful to run. Month by month, Jeff and Philipper will share with us perhaps the body's greatest miracle. I just marvel at the fact that all of this is going on, there's no real intervention for me, it's just my body taking over and doing it all, and I'm not, not in control of it, at , at all really, it just all happens. In adulthood, we reach the peak of human achievement. Marsha, an astronaut, has scaled the heights. There is nothing in our experience, genetic, metaphysical, emotional, psychological experience that prepares us for being off the planet. You know, you can look at all of the pictures that come back from space, and you can look at the s and there are something about looking out of the window that is not describable. And we'll be living through the ravages of aging with 76-year-old Bud and his wife Viola. They live and work on a farm in the Midwest of America. What I remember about Bud, he had the prettiest waviest hair. Ha-ha.That's different now, isn't it?Yes, it is. Ha-ha, and his skin was smooth, no wrinkles, and didn't have any little pot here. Ha-ha. And in our last chapter, as his body slowly succumbs to cancer, Herby will take us on his final journey. I know, I'll never see this film in my lifetime.words and expressionsroller coaster :(original meaning here is 过山车)Something, such as an action, event, or experience, that is marked by abrupt, extreme changes in circumstance, quality, or behavior:急转突变的行为、事件或经历:指环境、品质或行为上发生了突忽而极端变化的东西puberty:The stage of adolescence in which an individual becomes physiologically capable of sexual reproduction.青春期:青少年阶段bolshy:lt;俚gt;反叛的, 顽强的period:An instance or occurrence of menstruation.经期pubic: of, relating to, or located in the region of the pubis or the pubes.阴部的,耻骨的ravage:Grievous damage; havoc:灾难:极大的损失;灾祸:the ravages of disease.疾病的毁减性succumb to:屈于200707/16013

  • 探索世界奥秘之The Ghost In Your Genes(基因外遗传现象) 09The email was sent by Olov Bygren. He was studying the population records of an obscure town in northern Sweden, Overkalix. What made these records unique was their detail. They recorded births and deaths over hundreds of years, but they also had accurate details of the harvests. More significantly, Overkalix's isolated location on the Arctic Circle meant that it was particularly vulnerable to famine. In the 19th century, this was a very isolated area, they could not have help from outside. As it was so poor, they really had a hard time when there was a famine, and they really had a good, good time when the, the harvests were good. Bygren appeared to be seeing links between generations that confounded his expectations. I sent Marcus Pembrey an email telling him that we had some, some data, which could interest him. I was terribly excited to get this completely out of the blue, and for the first time, it seemed that there were some data that we could then start to explore, so that was the beginning of our collaboration. Overkalix offered Pembrey a unique opportunity to see if the events that happened in one generation could affect another decades later. While Pembrey and Bygren sifted through their Overkalix data, someone else had stumbled on another group of people that caught them by surprise. Rachel Yehuda is a psychologist. She is interested in how people respond to stress. Well, trans-generational effects were not on my radar screen at all until we opened up a clinic for the treatment of Holocaust survivors. While treating the Holocaust survivors for stress, she was surprised that many of the children of the survivors were themselves suffering stress effect. About five children of Holocaust survivors were calling us for every Holocaust survivor, and what these children said was that they were casualties of the Holocaust too that they had been affected by the Holocaust indirectly. She was convinced that the stress in their children was caused by continual retelling of the stories by their parents.New Words amp; Phrases:confound: If someone or something confounds you, they make you feel surprised or confused, often by showing you that your opinions or expectations of them were wrong. 使混乱;使困惑;使不知所措sift: If you sift through something such as evidence, you examine it thoroughly. 详查,细究Holocaust: The Holocaust is used to refer to the killing by the Nazis of millions of Jews during the Second World War. 大屠杀;大破坏200807/44964
  • Wild Europe - Genesis 肇始之初- 12...Africa. The African plate has been drifting north over millions of years. And when it pushes against the European plate, huge folds of rock have been forced up and over one another into great mountain ranges. Europe's southern mountains, the Pyrenees, Carpathians, and the Alps, all rose from this collision. Pieces of primeval ocean floor have been lifted thousands of meters up into the sky. The Alps are still rising, as Africa continues to push north. The volcanoes of southern Europe are vivid reminders of the great tectonic forces, lurking beneath our feet. The Vesuvius in Southern Italy is a sleeping giant. Nearly 2000 years ago, a huge eruption buried Pompeii. Today the city of Naples lies sprawled across its lower slopes. Who knows when another nudge from Africa would set it off again? It isn't just Europe's southern mountains that owe their existence to the advancing African plate. So too, does the Mediterranean Sea. This sea is one of the defining boundaries of the continent. With its spectacular coastline and clear blue waters, it's one of Europe's great natural treasures. Much of the Mediterranean's extraordinary history hinges on the narrow seaway at its western end. At the Rock of Gibraltar, only 14 kilometers now separate Europe from Africa. About 6 millions years ago, the northward push of Africa, combined with a drop in sea level, created a vast dam, cutting off the Mediterranean from the Atlantic.words and expressionsfold: (n.)

  • Life on Earth is basically proteins and DNA, so we can wonder if there is life on Mars will also be DNA and proteins, the same type of DNA, the same type of proteins. One might think that DNA is such a complex arrangement of molecules that it's unlikely to have the same set on another planet. Equally we may find that DNA is also on Mars. It may be that our way is the only way of life. On the other hand, we might argue that DNA is the optimal way to do it and that life is gonna discover this best possible solution no matter where it starts. So we're not sure if life will be different or the same, my guess is that it’ll be different. If life started separately on Mars, it'll have a different genetic structure than life on Earth. But there will only be one way to find this out conclusively. To examine life in this detail, someone will have to get up close. We really have to go find the facts, the facts on Mars, we're gonna go find them. We can hypostasize all we want but until we actually find the facts on the ground, we won't know for sure. It means that someone will have to go to Mars. And it just so happens that there is an organization aly preparing to go. Bo Maxwell is the UK President of the Mars Society, a group dedicated to colonizing our neighboring planet. Humans by their very nature are explorers. In our time, we've traveled from the African Rift Valley, climbed mountains, crossed oceans and settled just about everywhere there is to settle on Earth. We've built our houses, our towns, our cities. And now the time has come to move beyond the Earth, and Mars offers us the very best opportunity to go to another world and settle somewhere else. The Mars Society have their very own low cost plan to get to Mars. Bo is one of the masterminds. He's working on it from his home in Milton Keynes. The aim of the Mars Society is definitely to go to Mars, we want to go there, we want to explore and colonize. The advantage of sending humans to Mars is our greater ability to explore. We are much more efficient than robots.Human beings have a tremendous advantage over robot vehicles. We have our own intuition, our own intelligence which leaves our robot vehicles standing. A human being on Mars can stand on the surface, he can look around, she can look around and instantly spot areas where life may well be possible and life may exist.The discovery of water ice on Mars has reinvigorated their plans. Water is the one thing any colonizers would need.rift valley: A deep fracture or break, about 25-50 km (15-30 miles) wide, in the earth's crust, creating an elongated valley bounded by two or more faults 这里是指东非大裂谷200809/48969
