I remember a lesson I learned from my dad on a warm spring day many years ago in northern Minnesota. As we fished for tront on the Prairie River, my attention was drawn to a flight of geese heading north to their summer home in Canada. My youthful curiosity aroused, I asked my dad why the geese were flying in a "V" formation. He said geese fly in formation because they can travel up to 30 percent faster in formation than if they fly individually. Each goose was flying independently, and yet they were all flying together. The formation's structure gave them the extra speed. The formation also meant that there was always a goose that led the entire group. They also knew where they were going. They had a goalーtheir summer home in Canada. You have never heard of a flight of geese giving up and stopping in Kansas. They also reach their goal.

私は、北ミネソタで何年も前の暖かい春の日に父から学んだ教訓を、覚えています。 私たちがプレーリー(大草原)の川でマスを釣ろうとしていた時、北のカナダの彼らの夏の生息地に向かっているガチョウの群れに、私の注意はひかれました。 私の若々しい好奇心が生じて、ガチョウがなぜ「V」字の編隊飛行をしているのか、私は父に尋ねました。 ガチョウが編隊飛行をするのは、彼らが個々に飛ぶより編隊を組むと、最高30パーセント速く旅することができるからだと、父は言いました。 それぞれのガチョウは独立して飛んでいましたが、それでも彼らはみんな一緒に飛んでいました。 編隊の構造は、彼らに余分の速度を与えました。 編隊は、また、全グループを率いるガチョウが常にいることを意味していました。 彼らは、また、自分たちがどこに行こうとしているのかわかっていました。 彼らには、目的地がありました ― カナダの彼らの夏の生息地です。 カンザスで諦めて止まるガチョウの群れについて、これまで聞いたことがありません。 彼らも、目的地に辿りつくのです。

    There is more to the lesson of the geese. The next thing my dad told me was that when a goose becomes too tired to continue the journey, at least one other goose stays with it―to watch over it until it is strong enough to fly on. My dad also told me the geese take turns in the lead position, the most demanding position in the "V" formation. When the lead goose begins to tire, another quickly takes its place, enabling the lead goose to fall back into line to rest and regain energy. Lastly, my dad said the noisy honking that draws your attention to a flight of geese also has its purpose. He told me the noise came from the geese at the back of the "V" honking encouragement to the geese in the more difficult roles at the front of the "V". The migrating geese flew on to their destination in Canada. The memory of that warm spring day on the Prairie River in northern Minnesota is melted into the memory of many similar days of my youth. But the lesson I learned from my dad that day will never be forgotten.

    how we got here perry's display of american technology and weaponry was succesful in opening japan, and during the first three decades of the meiji period the U.S. served as a model for japanese modernization, but it was never an equal relationship. americans were the teachers and were more than happy in their role, teaching the japanese everything from english to baseball to military strategy. they believed that God had given them the best country and the best civiliza-tion in the word, and that their duty was to spread their culture to others.

    When do you turn your cell phone off? Now I am more careful about it, but my phone was always on until I (have) an embarrassing experience last summer. I went on a vacation with my friends.  It was just my (two) time on a plane, and I was so(exciting). We got to our seats and waited for takeoff.  The flight attendants came through the aisles, making sure no one was using their phones or other electronics.  The pilot said we were ready to take off.  The plane was quiet and everyone was settling in when all of a sudden someone's phone rang. It was so (loudly).  I felt upset because I knew cell phone users were supposed to turn their phones off at that moment.  Then I heard the second ring.  It was then that I realized the ringing was coming from my bag. It was my phone! I went into a panic, and it took me a minute to find and stop the ringing. Everyone looked at me, and I felt small. I slept for the rest of the flight. Since then, I have been more (care) with my cell phone. カッコ内は文法的に正しい形じゃありません。お願いします。

But how they managed to do this he could not guess.  It was not until fairly recently that this problem was solved, at least partially. The discovery of radar, the sending out of sound-waves and judging the obstacle ahead by the returning echo, made some investigators wonder if this was not the system employed by bats. A series of experiments was conducted, and some fascinating things were discovered. First of all, some bats were blindfolded with tiny pieces of wax over their eyes, and as usual they had no difficulty in flying to and fro without hitting anything. Then it was found that if they were blindfolded and their ears were covered they were no longer able to avoid collisions and, in fact, did not seem at all keen on flying in the first place. If only once ear was covered they could fly with only moderate success and would frequently hit objects. This showed that bats could get information about the obstacles ahead by means of sound-waves reflected from them. Then the investigators covered the noses and mouths of their bats, but left the ears uncovered, and again the bats were unable to fly without collision. This proved that the nose, ears and mouth all played some part in the bat´s radar system. Eventually, by the use of extremely delicate instruments, the facts were discovered. As the bat flies along, it emits a continuous succession of supersonic squeaks, far too high for the human ear to pick up. They give out, in fact, about thirty squeaks a second. The echoes from these squeaks, bouncing off the obstacles ahead, return to the bat´s ears and, in some species, to the curious fleshy ridges round the creature´s nose, and the bat can thus tell what lies ahead and how far away it is. It is, in fact, in every detail the principle of radar. 以上です。

    できるだけ、そのままの意味でとっていただけたらと思います。 スペルミスには注意したつもりですが、それでもあったらすみません。 最初のあたりが、よく分かりませんでした。  One of the most basic needs is the need for affection. Without some contact with other human beings, we would not develop normally. The need for affection, however, does not seem to apply only to people. Studies has shown that animals, too, require love and affection. Beginning in the 1950s, psychologists Harry and Margaret Harlow carried out a series of important tests with monkeys, pointing out the   affectional needs of animals.  The Harlows stumbled on their first finding by accident. Trying to produce a group of young monkeys completely free from disease, they isolated each of 56 infants in a wire cage shortly after birth. The infant monkeys could see and hear the other monkeys, but they could not engage in any physical contact with one another. Now were the infants“mothered”, as monkeys usually are after they are born.  In a sense, the researchers achieved their goal. The animals were indeed physically healthy. However, they gradually showed sigh of severe emotional disturbance. They would sit in a corner for hours just staring into space. Some held their heads tightly in their hands and rocked back and forth. Others, when approached, would fly into attacks of rage, tearing at themselves with such force that they sometimes needed medical care.  When the female “motherless” monkeys themselves became mothers, they still displayed abnormal behavior. They ignored their offspring and sometimes even attacked them brutally. Some of the infants had to be removed  from the cages because of the mothers´ refusal to feed them. In fact, had these infants not been raised in a laboratory environment, they would probably not have survived. The role of contact with others cannot be stressed enough. It seems that from almost the moment of birth, we need contact with others to adjust properly. 以上になります。

    ''It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." The Victorian age was one of soaring ambition, technological wonder, and awesome grandeur, as well as ugliness, and misery on an unprecended scale. The Victorians knew life was changing faster than ever before, and they recorded that change in paintings that were the cinema of their day. These paintings aren't fashionable, and they don't generally change hands for millions of pounds in auction rooms, but to me they're a gold mine, they show us like nothing else what it was like to live in those incredible times, and they tell amazing stories. The most dramatic story of the age was the explosion of giant cities. To our Victorian forefathers they were a terrific shock. When Queen Victoria came to the throne, people were at best uneasy at, and at worst utterly terrified by these vast gatherings of humanity. Nothing like them had existed before. But by the time she died, the men and women of the age had pioneered an entirely new way of living: they had invented the modern city. At the dawn of the 19th century, Britain was on the move. Rumours had reached even the remotest villages and hamlets of incredible developments just over the horizon. Towns bigger than anyone could imagine, astouding new machines, and money to be made for those ready to take the risk. My own great-great-great-grandfather was in that tide of humanity that left the land in search of a better life. He, his wife and four of their children travelled to the industrial north by barge. They didn't really know what they'd find here, but they did know what they were leaving behind, and whatever they were to find here, it was better than begging for handouts or going hungry.

    they believed that if they could teach the japanese to adopt the best of american culture and create an american democracy in asia, japan would become a better country and the world a safer place. japan was given a new constitution based, for the most part, on the american constitution which stressed local control over education and the police. Men were no longer allowed the legal right of control over their families and women were allowed to vote. the 6-3-3 educa-tion system was introduced and parents were given oversight through the PTA. Unions were formed.
