1) In nearly every case the first black Britons to move to the UK did so of their own will. Black South Africans, for all the oppression they endured for so long, never lost their culture, their languages and their sense of home. Black Americans, the only grouping in a nation of immigrants who did not originally come to the US out of their choice, appeared trapped in a perpetual struggle to define their identity. 

最初来到英国的第一批黑人大部分是自愿的。南非的黑人在经历了这么长时间的镇压后,依然没有丧失他们的文化、语言以及家园意识。美国的黑人是唯一一批最初不是自愿移民到美国的一个团体,而且看上去一直处于无法认识自己的困境中。

2) "Other countries have a climate; in England we have weather." This statement, often made by Englishmen to describe the peculiar meteorological conditions of their country, is both revealing and true.

“其他国家有气候,而在英国,我们讨论的是天气。” 这句英国人经常用来描述英国独特的气候条件的玩笑话不仅很犀利而且也是有据可循的。

3) Although New Zealand was the first country in the world where women got the vote in 1893, it remains a sexiest society in which male chauvinism of the pioneering period still rules many social patterns. 

虽然新西兰在1893年成为全世界第一个赋予女性投票权的国家,但是它的性别歧视现象还是非常严重,早期的大男子主义仍主导着许多社会发展模式。

4) As a gambler, I have always been attracted to Las Vegas. And I thought the city was the perfect place to take the biggest gamble of your life -- getting married.

作为一个名符其实的赌徒,我一直很想去拉斯维加斯。而且我认为在那儿结婚再合适不过了,这也将是人生中下的最大的一个赌注。

5) Blair offered an olive branch to the republicans, making it difficult for the Irish Republican Party Sinn Fein to say "no" to talks on future peaceful co-existence of Protestant and Catholic communities in the country.

布莱尔向共和党人递去橄榄枝,使得爱尔兰共和党成员西恩·费恩很难向新教与天主教社区未来的和平共处谈话说“不“。

6) It isn't expected to start nibbling away at computer data systems until the clock click over to 2000, but the millennium bug has been crawling on the nerves of information technology workers around the world for some time. 

指望2000年过去之前电脑数据系统被千年虫侵蚀完是不太可能的了,但是这个问题已经困扰全球的信息技术人员好长一段时间了。
