Evelyn hears some sounds that are clear and distinct. For example, she hears a phone ringing as a kind of crackling sound, but she knows that the cracking sound is a phone ringing. She can hear someone speaking, but cannot distinguish words, so she reads lips to get the meaning. With such limited hearing ability, how is Evelyn able to perform such fascinating music? “The sense of hearing and the sense of touch are more similar than we realize,” explains Evelyn. “Sound is vibrating air that the ear picks up and changes into electrical signals. These signals are then interpreted by the brain. Hearing is not the only sense that can pick up sound, touch can do this too. In other words, we can also ‘feel’ sound. “If you are standing by the road and a large bus goes by, do you hear the sound or feel the vibration? The answer is both. Hearing a sound and feeling a vibration are basically the same thing,” she says. “If we can all feel low vibrations, why can’t we feel higher vibrations? It is my belief that we can. When a particular sound is made, you can truly feel that in certain parts of your body.” 問1、How does Evelyn “listen” to the notes? 問2、How many performances a year does Evelyn give? やってもらうと助かります。

<訳例> エヴリンは、明白で明瞭である音は、いくぶん聞こえます。たとえば、彼女には、電話が鳴っているのが、一種のプチプチという音の様に聞こえます、しかし、彼女はリーンという音が電話の音であるということを知っています。 彼女は誰かが話しているのを聞くことができますが、語を聞き分けることができないので、彼女は意味を知るために唇を読みます。 そのような限られた聴力で、エヴリンはどの様にして、あのように魅力的な音楽を演奏することができるのでしょうか? 「我々が思っているより、聴覚と触覚は類似しています」と、エヴリンは説明します。 「音は、振動する空気です、それを耳がとらえて、電気信号に変えるのです。それから、これらの信号は、脳によって解釈されます。聴力は音をとらえることができる唯一の感覚ではありません、触覚もまた音をとらえることができるのです。 言い換えると、我々は、音に「触れる」こともできるのです。 「あなたが道のそばに立っている、そして、大きなバスが通り過ぎるならば、あなたは音が聞こえますか、それとも、振動を感じますか? 答えは、両方です。 音を聞くことと、振動を感じることは、基本的に同じものです」と、彼女は言います。 「我々全員が低い振動を感じることができるならば、なぜ、我々はより高い振動を感じることができないのでしょうか? 我々にはそうすることができると言うのが、私の信念です。 特定の音がたてられるとき、あなたは体の特定の部分でそれを本当に感じることができるのです。」 問1.She feels the vibration. 問2.You cannot find the answer to this question in the story above.

    “To interpret certain sounds with your body you just have to be very sensitive. It’s certainly not easy, but with time, practice I seem to have found a way to do it.” The low sounds Evelyn feels mostly in her legs and feet, and the high sounds she feels in particular places on her face, neck, and chest. This is how she “listens” to the notes. She often performed with bare feet―mainly because she feels the vibrations of the music through the floor. “The thing about percussion,” Evelyn says, “is that you can create all these emotions―sometimes beautiful, sometimes ugly, sometimes sweet, and sometimes as big as King Kong. There can be a storm of sound, or the sound can be so refined.” Not all percussion is loud and pounding. Evelyn gives more than 100 performances a year around the world. She wants audiences to focus on her music rather than on her deafness, and she wants them to be entertained. Evelyn gets upset with reporters because they sometimes ask too many questions about her deafness. As Evelyn puts it, “If you want to know about deafness, you should interview an ear doctor. My specialty is music.” 問1、What is her specialty? お願いします。

    Very little of what is said is important for the information expressed in the words. It is crucially important, as a way of showing that we are involved with each other, and how we feel about being involved. お願いします(>_<)

    Evelyn was born on a farm in Scotland. She began taking piano lessons at age eight. Later that same year, she began to notice that her hearing was gradually failing. “As I was losing my hearing, I tried hard not to be sad, but I was becoming a very angry person,” says Evelyn. “Then one of my teachers said, ‘Evelyn, put your hand on the copper ball of one of the timpani drums.’ I could feel the vibration. Then he tuned the two timpani drums to different pitches. I noticed the difference between the vibrations.” Evelyn gives a lot of credit to her secondary school teachers for encouraging her to take drum lessons at the age of 12. After just a few lessons, she seemed to have found the right thing for her. She soon began working with various percussion instruments, but it wasn’t long before she had lost most of her hearing. However, she simply refused to worry about it and continued to follow her dreams. What does Evelyn think about her success? She often points out, “I’m not a deaf musician. I’m a musician who happens to be deaf.” 問1、Who encouraged her to take drum lessons? 問2、Does Evelyn think of herself as a deaf musician? やってもらうと助かります。

    Evelyn Glennie looks like a rock drummer, pounding away under the spotlight. This is, however, a symphony concert hall and Evelyn Glennie is a star of contemporary music. She is the world’s first full time percussion soloist. Evelyn reaches far and fast from snare drums to cymbals, from congas to the bass drum as she plays as a soloist with the New York Philharmonic. Conductor Leonard Slatkin says, “People have always liked drums. Evelyn now shows us that percussion is more than drums. It’s a whole world of colors, energy, and subtlety that perhaps most people didn’t know about before.” There seems to be something new in every performance she gives. Evelyn has performed with the world’s finest orchestras and greatest conductors in the most famous concert halls. Her first CD won her a Grammy in 1988. Since that time, she has received more than 70 international awards. And oh yes, by the way, Evelyn is profoundly deaf. 問1、What kind of music does Evelyn Glennie play? 問2、What did Evelyn win in 1988? 問3、How many international awards has she received? 問4、When did Evelyn begin taking piano lessons? やってもらうと助かります!

    With this information. we can see that the human body maintains a very delicate balance between cell creation and cell destruction, when this balance is disrupted the result can be a potentially fatal health condition, cancer is a disease in which too little apoptosis occurs, as cancerous cells often are corrupted in ways that make them resistant to the natural death process and can continue multiplying until destructive tumors are created. On the other hand, in a body that suffers from too much apoptosis, degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's can arise. With the process of apoptosis playing such a vital role in human health, it is no surprise that researchers are continuously studying it. If we can learn how to artificially control the apoptosis of cells in our bodies, it could lead to treatments for many life-threatening illnesses.

     Self-esteem refers to all of the beliefs and feelings we have about ourselves. It is how we view who we are. How we see ourselves influences the way we do things and what our attitudes and behaviours are. It also affects our emotions. Patterns of self-esteem start very early in life. For example, a baby who reaches a certain goal feels a sense of accomplishment that strengthens its self-esteem. Learning to roll over after dozens of unsuccessful attempts teaches a baby a "can-do" attitude. 大変長くて申し訳ありませんが、上の英文の和訳が分かる方がいれば、どうかよろしくお願いします!!!

    A woman I work with used to join me and a few others for drinks after work occasionally, and her company is fine enough. However, over the past six months due to a minor promotion, she has become insufferable. She is constantly ratting people out to our principal (I work at a school,) looking for ways to get those she doesn’t like in trouble, and even going as far as to make up things that aren’t true. None of this has been directed at me personally, so I have stayed out of it, while remaining sympathetic to my co-workers who are victims of her power trip. The root of this issue is the way the principal handles HR, but I’m not interested in speaking with her about that. My problem is that this woman is always asking me what I’m doing after work and trying to invite herself along with me and another friend I work with. We both feel uncomfortable socializing with her since we’re disgusted at her behavior, however, I don’t feel I can be direct with her since she has the ear of my boss. I don’t feel I can be direct with her since she has the ear of my boss.の和訳をよろしくお願いします

    環境問題の長文ですが、以下の和訳のおかしな所を教えて下さい。 Because the number of people is growing,we are taking more and more land to live. 人口は増え続けているので、私たちは、もっと多くの住む場所を必要とする。 One of the things which makes us differet from other animals is that we can see these global problems and do something about them. 動物たちと人間と違うことは、私たちは、世界の問題を理解して、何かをすることができる。

  • so just feel ~ that【和訳】

    次の文章の和訳をお願いします。特にso just feelからがわかりません。解説いただければありがたいです。 If we have very, very low self-esteem, which is a rampant problem in Western culture for many various reasons, then we can be very jealous of what others have achieved, but we feel that, “I couldn’t possibly achieve that, I’m not good enough” and we don’t even try. You just give up and feel bad about ourselves; so just feel “poor me,” that everybody else is so successful and “I’m a loser.”

    英文の和訳お願いします!!! Not even the best of schools can educate a child whose will to work has not first been learnt at home. Not even the best of health services can make up for the damage done to a child by a mother's bad care. There are millions of people who prefer the company of animals to people,which is understandable,because animals are far less demanding. When we talk of the cleverness of insects,we ought always to keep in mind that this cleverness is what is called instinctive,and differs considerably from the cleverness of which man is so proud. Perhaps one of the reasons we all have so much difficulty in defining and explaining words is that we continue to think of the dictionary as the final authority about them.
