因为和员工谈恋爱,麦当劳CEO被解雇 网友:实力诠释I'm lovin' it 191107

北京时间11月4日凌晨,美国快餐业巨头麦当劳宣布,已解雇公司总裁兼首席执行官(CEO)伊斯特布鲁克(Steve Easterbrook),原因是他与公司的一名雇员存在双方自愿的亲密关系,违反了公司的规定。McDonald's has fired its chief executive Steve Easterbrook after he had a relationship with an employee.麦当劳解雇了首席执行官史蒂夫·伊斯特布鲁克,原因是他与一名员工有亲密关系。The US fast food giant said the relationship was consensual, but Mr Easterbrook had "violated company policy" and shown "poor judgement".这家美国快餐巨头表示,这种关系是双方自愿的,但伊斯特布鲁克“违反了公司规定”,并表现出“判断力差”。In an email to staff, the British businessman acknowledged the relationship and said it was a mistake.在一封致员工的电子邮件中,这位英国商人承认了这种关系,并表示这是一个错误。"Given the values of the company, I agree with the board that it is time for me to move on," he said.“考虑到公司的价值观,我同意董事会的决定,现在是我继续向前的时候了,”他说。不少网友调侃说,伊斯特布鲁克此举算是完美诠释了麦当劳的广告语“I'm lovin' it”。“I'm lovin' it”这句话是不是他想出来的?很多网友则奇怪,既然是两情相悦,为什么要解雇人家呢?所以,为什么两情相悦的恋爱关系不好?很奇怪啊。我跟我太太就是办公室恋情,还谈了很久。但也有网友支持公司的决定,认为上下级关系中从来没有“双方自愿”一说:伊斯特布鲁克太蠢了!初级小经理都知道跟下属谈恋爱是违反规定的。蠢死了,炒掉他是对的!千万别在职场找对象。你如何看待办公室恋情呢?写在留言处和大家分享。

我们讲有家庭地位,这个表达很简单,就叫做have a place in the family. 比如:I lost my place in the family when my younger sister was born. 我妹妹出生时,我就失去了在家里的地位。另外类似的表达,家中有多个孩子的时候,可以说the first born child, the middle born child, the last born child. 独子就是the only child.The first born child usually enjoy the exclusive attention of the parents.第一胎出生的孩子通常受到父母的特殊照顾。我们再说说“可爱”不同的表达,首先会想到形容词cute,adorable.这些很基础,今天和大家分享两个习语表达,更加有趣。表示“很可爱”的两个习语Be as cute as a buttonYour little baby girl is as cute as a button.

“多喝热水”别说drink more hot water,可能会“死人”!190629

笨老撕今天和大家聊聊“多喝热水”这个话题。我们可能习惯喝热水,外国人大都习惯喝冷水,这更多是个人的喜好和选择。我们重点来聊聊这个词组到底如何用英语表达比较合适。说到“多喝热水”,我们第一反应会是drink more hot water. 但是严格来讲,这里用drink和hot water都不合适。先说hot water。“热水”和hot water 两个概念是不对等的。中文我们讲热水,其实是开水凉过之后的温水,对应的英文应该叫做warm water. 而开水的英文则叫做hot water或者boiled water(煮开的水)。标准100摄氏度(100 degree centigrade)是开水的温度,但是我们都知道由于地理因素,气压不同,不同地方的开水温度可能会有差异。能查到的我们国家饮用开水的标准是92°或以上。所以在国外,当我们说hot water的时候,老外会认为是一个温度很高的水,多用于冲泡茶叶、咖啡等。所以我们需要的是warm water,而不是hot water. 当然你也可以要hot water自己来晾凉,但是,真的会很烫……我们再说drink,是“喝”这个概念的总称。但是,不同的“喝”在英文中有不同的动词,比如大口喝、抿一口喝、狂饮等。说到这,大家应该理解说是,drink more hot water并不符合大多数人喝水的习惯。如果是真的要喝hot water,那么就要“小口抿”,日常一点的说法叫做“吸溜”…… 所以“多喝热水”最正确的英文我们叫做drink more warm water.最后就是一些英文中表示不同方式“喝”的动词,分享给大家。sip v. 抿一口喝Sip hot water frequently throughout the day. It helps to your health.全天时不时地抿几口热水。这样对健康有益。guzzle v. /ˈɡʌzəl/ 狂饮,一口干He just lost his job and guzzled beers one after another.他刚刚丢了工作,于是一个接一个地狂饮啤酒。slug v. 满满地喝一口(烈酒)He had a slug of vodka before going onto the stage.在上台前他喝了一大口伏特加。注:slug可做名词,也可做动词

日常交流中,当别人问你住哪,如果住的是酒店,我们第一反应可能会说I live in a hotel. 但是,老外听到这句回答的时候,心里非常有可能在想:Why do you live in a hotel instead of your house?其实这种场景下用live是非常不地道的,因为live指的是长期的居住,用stay这个词才是最地道的,因为我们绝大多数时候住酒店,是临时住。下面笨老撕语音带着大家来学习live和stay的区别,以及更多不一样的用法。Live in 居住have your home somewhere在某地安家Stay 短暂停留be in a place for a short time as a visitor在某地作为游客短暂停留A: Where are you now?你现在在哪呢?B: I am staying in a hotel and I’ll be back home next week. 我住在一家酒店。下周就回家了。Live v. 享受生活的乐趣I want to live a little before I settle down.在安定下来之前我要好好享受一下生活。Stay n. 逗留时间I am gonna have a short stay in Suzhou on my way to Shanghai. 在去上海的路上,我会在苏州做短暂停留。Live life to the full 过得很充实She enjoys traveling to different places to live her life to the full.她喜欢到各地旅行以充分享受她的生活。

Vol.307 星巴克致癌?真相到底是怎么样的!

【微信公众平台】搜索“英语口语每天学”,获取独家免费英语学习资料【新浪微博】@笨老撕A judge in Los Angeles on Wednesday ruled that coffee companies like Starbucks must carry cancer warning labels in California. That&`&s because the roasting process produces in coffee acrylamide, [əˈkrɪləmaɪd] a chemical that can cause cancer.在加州,周三,一名法官裁定,像星巴克这样的咖啡企业应该店内展示“咖啡可能致癌”的标识。这是因为咖啡豆的烤制过长中会产生丙烯酰胺,一种可能致癌的化学物质。It is clear that high amounts of acrylamide [əˈkrɪləmaɪd], a white odorless [ˈoʊdərləs] compound, can cause damage to the nervous system and possibly raise the risks of cancer.一个很明显的事实是,高浓度的丙烯酰胺(一种白色没有气味的化合物)会造成神经系统的损伤,或者有可能提高患癌症的风险。Acrylamide also forms in some starchy [ˈstɑːr.tʃi] foods during high-temperature cooking, such as frying, baking and roasting. And in the roasting of coffee beans.一些含淀粉的食物在高温烹饪的时候也会形成丙烯酰胺,比如油炸,烘焙,或者烧烤。还有就是在咖啡豆的烤制时。The trouble is, we don&`&t know at what levels it is dangerous. An arm of the World Health Organization in 2010 concluded that acrylamide is a human health concern. Yet in 2016, the cancer agency of WHO removed it from its "possible carcinogen” [kɑːrˈsɪnədʒən] list.问题是,我们不知道多大浓度的丙烯酰胺才是有害的。2010年的时候,世界卫生组织的一个部门决定说丙烯酰胺是人类健康的隐患。不过在2016年的时候,世界卫生组织癌症研究把丙烯酰胺从致癌物质的列表中去掉了。While we are at it, why not warning labels for a range of foods that&`&s been linked to cancer? Canned goods, grilled meat, refined sugars, smoked meats. 我们在针对星巴克的时候,为什么也不对其他有致癌隐患的食物也标上警示标签呢?比如罐装食品,烤肉,精制糖,熏肉等。What&`&s more, there are more studies that suggest coffee reduces the risk of liver, uterine [ˈjuː.təraɪn] and other cancers.而且,有更多研究证明咖啡可以降低患肝癌、子宫癌和其他癌症的风险。Are you a big fan of Starbucks?
