  "Family" is of course an elastic word. And in different countries it has differen meanings. Butwhen British people say that their society is based on family life, they are thinking of "family"in itsnarrow, peculiarly European sense of mother, father and children living together in their own houseas an economic and social unit. Thus, every British marriage indicates the beginning of a new and in-dependent family--hence the tremendous importance of marriage in British life. For both man andwoman, marriage means leaving one’s parents and starting one’s own life. The man’s first duty willthen be to his wife, and the wife’s to her husband. He will be entirely responsible for her financialsupport, and she for the running of the new home. Their children will be their common responsibilityand their alone. Neither the wife’s parents nor the husband’s, nor their brothers or sisters, aunts oruncles, have any right to interfere with them-they are their own masters.

  Readers of novels likeJane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice will know that in former times, marriage among wealthy families were arranged by the girl’s parents, that is, it was the "parents' duty tofind a suitable husband for their daughter, preferably a rich one, and by skillful encouragement tolead him eventually to ask their permission to marry her. Until that time, the girl was protected andmaintained in the parents' home, and the financial relief of getting rid of her could be seen in theirgiving the newly married pair a sum of money called a dowry (嫁妆). It is very different today.Most girls of today get a job when they leave school and become financially independent before theirmarriage. This has had two results. A girl chooses her own husband, and she gets no dowry. Everycoin has two sides; independence for girls is no exception. But it may be a good thing for all of thegirls, as their social status are much higher and they are no longer the subordinate(部下,下级) oftheir parents and husbands.

Real policemen, both in Britain and the United States, hardly(共4篇)


篇一:在线求解答

Real policemen, both in Britain and the United States, hardly recognize any resemblance () between their lives and what they see on TV 刼 if they ever get home in time.
The first difference is that in real life a policeman must receive education in criminal law. He has to know exactly what actions are crimes and what evidence can be used to prove them in court.
He will spend most of his working life typing millions of words on thousands of forms about hundreds of sad, unimportant people who are guilty 刼 or not 刼 of stupid, petty (ぃ璶) crimes.
Most television crime drama is about finding the criminal: as soon as heˇs arrested, the story is over. In real life, finding criminals is seldom much of a problem. Except in very serious cases like murders and terrorist attacks 刼 where failure to produce results reflects on the standing of the police 刼 little effort is spent on searching.
A third big difference is between the drama detective and the real life ones. Detectives are subject to two opposing pressures: first, as members of a police force they always have to behave with absolute legality (猭); secondly, as expensive public servants they have to get results. They can hardly ever do both. Most of the time some of them have to break the rules in small ways.
If the detective has to deceive the world, the world often deceives him. Hardly anyone he meets tells him the truth. And this separation the detective feels between himself and the rest of the world is deepened by the simplemindedness 刼 as he sees it 刼 of citizens, social workers, doctors, law-makers, and judges, who, instead of stamping out crime, punish the criminals less severely in the hope that this will make them reform. The result, detectives feel, is that nine-tenths of their work is re-catching people who should have stayed behind bars. This makes them rather cynical. (323 words)

27. The everyday life of a policeman or detective is ________.

篇三:紧急英语问题

These days we are so accustomed to instant communication, it is hard to imagine the excitement that was created in the nineteenth century when cables, which were used to transmit telegraph messages, were laid.
Cable laying proved to be immensely difficult. The cable that carried the first telegraph messages between England and France in the autumn of 1850 had a very short life. The day after, a fisherman "caught" the cable by mistake. Thinking that the copper wire at the center of the thick cable was gold, he cut a piece off to show his friends. However, a new cable was laid, and soon news could travel quickly across Europe. But there was still no way of sending messages between Europe and America.

When the Atlantic Telegraph Company was formed in 1856, a serious attempt was made to "join" Europe to America with no less than 2300 miles of cable. As no single ship could carry such a weight, two sailing vessels, the Agamemnon and the Niagara, shared the job. The intention was that after setting out in opposite directions, they should meet in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean where the two cables would be connected together. But the ships had hardly covered 300 miles when the cable broke. In 1858, a second attempt was made. This time, though greatly hindered by storms, the ships were successful. There was great rejoicing a few months later, when after the combined efforts of both ships, Britain and America were at last connected by cable and the Queen of England was able to speak to the President of the United States. This cable, however, only lasted eleven weeks. Further attempts were postponed until 1864 when Brunei's steamship, the Great Eastern, set forth. This powerful ship did the whole job by itself, but again messages could not travel freely because the cable developed a fault. While it was being mended, it broke, leaving 1300 miles of worthless cable lying on the ocean floor.

But two years later the Great Eastern completed a highly successful journey laying cable, and since then it has become possible to send messages to all parts of the world.

6. When were the first cables in the world laid?
A. In the nineteenth century.
B. In the early twentieth century.
C. In the eighteenth century.
D. In the 1940s.

7. What happened to the first cable between England and France?
A. It didn't work at all because there was something wrong with its quality.
B. A fisherman mistook it for a long fish.
C. It was broken by the violent waves in the English Channel.
D. Someone cut it.

8. Why were two sailing vessels, the Agamemnon and the Niagara, used to lay the cable?
A. Because one ship couldn't cover 2300 miles.
B. Because it was difficult to find a cable of 2300 miles.
C. Because one ship couldn't carry the weight of the cable.
D. Because the cable of 2300 miles was more likely to break.
