News Report One

 

And finally in tonight's news, a nine-year-old boy named Joe, told not to draw in class, wins a job decorating a restaurant with his drawings. Rather than shutting down the habit of drawing in his school's workbook, [1] Joe's parents decided to encourage his creativity by sending their son to an after-school art class. His teacher recognized Joe's talent and posted all his work online, which led to something pretty wonderful. [2] A restaurant named Number 4 in Newcastle contacted Joe's teacher to ask if the nine-year-old could come and decorate its dining room with his drawings. Everyday after school, Joe's dad drives him to the restaurant, so he can put his ideas straight on the wall. Once he's all done, the work will remain there permanently). Joe's dad said, "Joe is a really talented little boy. He's excellent at school. He's great at football, but drawing is definitely what he is most passionate about."

 

今晚的最后一条新闻,一个叫乔的九岁小男孩不被准许在课堂上画画,但他却得到了一份工作,那就是用他的画作去装饰一家餐馆。乔的父母不但没有制止乔在学校作业本上画画的习惯,[1]反而为了激发他的创造力把他送去了一个课外艺术班。乔的老师发现了他的天赋,还把他所有的画作都发布到了网上,而这一举动给乔带来了一段无比美妙的经历。[2]纽卡斯尔一家名为“4号”的餐馆联系到了乔的老师,并询问这个九岁小男孩能否去餐厅作画来装饰餐厅。每天放学后,乔的爸爸开车送他去餐馆,这样他就可以直接将自己的灵感画到墙上了。他的画作全部完成后,便会永久地留在墙上。乔的父亲说:“乔的确是个很有天资的孩子。他在学校的功课不错,足球踢得也很棒,不过画画无疑是他最热爱的事情。”

News Report Three

 

London's Eggs and Bread Café offers boiled eggs, toast,jam and bacon, as well as tea, coffee and orange juice. But at the end of the meal, customers don't have to worry about the bill. Hungry customers can pay whatever amount they can afford to eat at the café or nothing at all. [5] Owner Guy Wilson says his café aims to build community rather than profits. He wants to provide a bridge for people to connect in an area that has been divided by class and wealth by providing affordable breakfast. The café is open in the mornings every day of the year, and has two members of staff or supervisors on shift every day. [6] The café doesn't use volunteers, but pays its staff to ensure consistency in its service. It doesn't take donations and doesn't want to be seen as a charity. [7] Mr. Wilson says, when people start to know other people around them, they realize they're not that different. And whatever their financial background or their educational background, most people will have something in common with each other. He says it's important that his café can offer his customers security and permanence.

 

位于伦敦的鸡蛋和面包咖啡厅提供煮鸡蛋、吐司、果酱、培根等食物,也提供茶、咖啡、橙汁等饮品。不过顾客在用餐结束后,却不必担心账单的问题。饥肠转转的顾客可根据自身能力选择付款数额,甚至可以享受免费的待遇。[5]店主盖伊·威尔逊表示,他的咖啡厅旨在建立一个社群,而非盈利。他希望在一个原本按阶级和财富划分等级的地方,通过提供人们可以吃得起的早餐,为人们架起一座联系的桥梁。这家咖啡厅每天早上开门营业,全年无休,每天有两名员工或主管轮流值班。[6]咖啡厅没有请志愿者,而是支付员工工资以确保服务的质量。它不接受捐款,也不想被认为是慈善机构。[7]威尔逊先生说,当人们开始了解周围的人后,他们会意识到自己并没有什么与众不同。无论人们的经济背景或教育背景如何,大多数人之间都会有一些共同之处。他说,重要的是,他的咖啡厅可以给予他的顾客一种安全感和持久性。
