Australians, and particularly those who live in Melbourne, are crazy about sport. In Melbourne you can watch a large range of competitive sports. example, I have been to see Australian rules football, rugby league, rugby union, cricket, basketball, hockey, Taekwondo, golf, tennis, car racing, motorcycle racing and athletics, just to name those which I have attended here in Melbourne. Now most cities in the world have lots of sports events, but in Melbourne we attend these events in large numbers. example, the Grand Final of the Australian Rules Football competition in September of each year has around 0,000 sports fans attend the match. And we have the sports ground big enough to hold such a large crowd, the Melbourne Cricket Ground (popularly called The MCG, or The G). In this podcast, I would like to talk about Australian Rules Football.大家好你们喜欢体育运动吗？澳大利亚人，尤其是生活在墨尔本的澳大利亚人，非常痴迷于体育运动在墨尔本可以观看到很多种竞技体育比赛比如，我在墨尔本看过澳式足球、橄榄球大联盟、橄榄球联合会、板球、篮球、曲棍球、跆拳道、高尔夫、网球、赛车、托车比赛和田径等各种各样的比赛，这些只是我列举的一些我在墨尔本看过的比赛世界上大多数城市都会举办多种体育赛事，但是墨尔本的体育赛事总能吸引到大批观众举例来说，每年九月举行的澳式足球总决赛会吸引约万名体育迷到现场观看比赛我们有足以容纳这么多观众的大型运动场，比如墨尔本板球中心（通常被称作The MCG或The G）在本期播客中，我将介绍一下澳式足球Australian Rules Football (called Footy by fans all around Australia) is around 0 years old. It is played with an oval shaped ball by two teams, each with 18 players. The team which kicks the most goals and points wins the game. It is a very physical game and it main characteristics are speed, strong tackling, long kicking (up to 70 metres), long handballs (up to 30 metres) and high marks. A mark is when someone catches a kicked ball.澳式足球（澳大利亚球迷通常称之为footy）距今已有约0年的历史澳式足球是两个球队用椭圆形球进行的比赛，每队18名球员进最多球、获得最多分的球队获胜澳式足球身体对抗激烈，主要特点是速度、强势抢断、长传（最远70米）、长距离手球（最远30米）和高跳接球“接球”是指球员接住被踢出的球 译文属 9N6 first exposed child modeling websites, sites that they’re still marketing provocative pictures of underage girls. Now our investigation stretches to Alabama where two south Florida men faced child porn charges. One young victim has a warning about how an innocent request to become a star turned into selling innocence. Some of the pictures are disturbing. Jeff Burnside reports:Savannah Haile is much like any other twelve-year-old girl growing up in eastern Alabama, Tiny Phoenix City. "Do your friends know what happened?""Two or three"Now she is talking about something that should never happen to a little girl." You’ve always liked being in front of a camera, haven't you?""Always."In Savannah and her mother Tabitha were contacted by a photographer who saw a picture she put on-line. It seemed stardom was in reach. "I was very excited, and I was jumping, literally jumping and screaming at the same time."The first of three shoots was fine. The second made her uncomtable. "Did you tell your mom?""No, ‘cause I didn't think anything of it.""And then the third shoot?""Very very uncomtable. I didn't like the way their outfits were, um, the way they were on me and the way that, the way I looked.""It was sexual, wasn't it?""Yes.""I never dreamed there was such a thing as websites like that children. I felt like I just destroyed my child and I scared her."Without knowing her photos under the name Bailey became part of the disturbing underworld of child websites showing girls as young as seven. These are by no means the most lurid. Our 01 N6 investigation exposed the operation that is the Webe Web, Jeff Libman, shirtless and Marc Greenberg , running these websites from t Lauderdale . They put Savannah's photos online."But the mother decided to fight back and take action. The very next day, she called the FBI." "I went non-stop. I was on the phone constantly -- Washington, House Representatives, everybody, I didn't care."Savannah's photographer Jeff Pierson used this Alabama studio to shoot the south Florida web operators whose sites have been shut down. Pierson pleaded guilty to child porn and he is now cooperating with prosecutors. Child advocates say they're not surprised kids like Savannah are tricked."We are dealing with manipulative, cunning, very greedy individuals who will find a way into exploit. They are going to look vulnerable people, maybe somewhat naive people."It 's the poses that lead to child porn charges against Greenberg and Libman even though the models were clothed. Both have pleaded not guilty. Tabitha Haile wishes she had seen our investigation bee that third photo session when from a waiting room she realized what was happening. “I didn't like that at all.”She felt helpless to stop the photo session she says, because the photographer had casually displayed a gun, something his attorney called absurd. I realized she was just intimidating me. And Savannah looked at me. She said, "Momma, let's wipe our face. How do I win, coming all crying?" She said:"Let's do this and get it over with and never come back."Now they want to warn others. "Yeah, so they wouldn't be in the same situation as I am."Pierson's attorney will not comment further. Greenberg and Libman's attorney did not respond to our repeated requests interviews. Both are out unbound awaiting trial.

In contrast, now in the 1990s, as we move into the new millennium, when people communicate on the web and through the Internet, they are not only doing and hearing and seeing the same thing, they also participating, communicating among each other.And so the notion of village becomes much more meaningful and real in our digital age.TV was a... or is a one-way medium, whereas the Internet is a... is two-way.That right, and there is a crucial difference right there.Most media in the th century, in fact all the major media of th century, radio, motion pictures, television, were and are like newspapers and books: one-way media.The telephone which of course was invented in 1876, is a two-way media.But it a two-way personal medium. There nothing public, or there shouldnt be much public about a telephone conversation.What makes Internet so different is that it is public but it is also interactive and two-way.Marshall McLuhan saw a time when everyone would be a publisher. He was referring to the Xerox machine, the copying machine.Today, we have the Internet which makes everybody an editor and... or makes everybody a publisher but not an editor.Isnt this a problem when everybody is a publisher but there is not an editor around?The traditional value of the editor is to, in some way, stipulate and vouch the quality of the publication or the production.So yes, there concern that when anyone can put anything on a web page, you know, there is no safeguard the quality.But on the other hand, and there is always another hand, I think the reason why McLuhan celebrated first the Xerox, allowing every author to be publisher,and why I am now so pleased that the web is even expending and amplifying that, is...there is also the danger of editors keeping out of the mix things that are good.What the web does is it removes the middle man and allows the creator to communicate directly with his or her audience and on balance I think that a good thing.There will be more drivel available, but therell also be more gems that would otherwise be hidden from public view. 6Foo Fighters’ Singer Finishes Concert with Broken Leg喷火战机乐队主唱断腿结束演唱In the middle of the second song at a concert in Sweden last weekend, Foo Fighters’ front man Dave Grohl fell off the stage. Grohl told the crowd that he thought he had broken his leg, but promised to return. At Grohl’s request, drummer Taylor Hawkins and the remaining band members continued without him.

He played some of the concert from a chair with his leg propped up. other songs he stood up with crutches and sang. After the concert, x-rays confirmed that Dave Grohl had broken his leg.上周末在瑞典，就在演唱第二首歌时，喷火战机乐队主唱大卫·格鲁摔下舞台格鲁对歌迷说他可能摔断了腿，但是他承诺将返回舞台在格鲁的要求下，鼓手泰勒·霍金斯和其他乐队成员继续演出大约一个小时之后，格鲁坐在担架上被抬回了舞台，腿上扎着绷带他兑现了自己的承诺，并为歌迷演唱了3个小时他的腿被架起，坐在椅子上弹起了乐器在唱到某些歌曲时，他拄着拐，站着演唱演唱会之后，X光显示出格鲁确实骨折译文属原创，，不得转载 38181.

When you buy a Myki card, you can also load some money onto it at the same time. It really quite easy. Every time you travel, you must touch on at the Myki er machine at the entrance to the station where you begin your journey. When you get off at the end of your journey, you must touch off with your card at the Myki er machine at that station. The Myki system subtracts your fare from the amount you loaded onto your Myki. I put on my Myki when I first bought it. It costs about .50 to go from my nearest station into the City. That about 5 kilometres. So it not too expensive.当你买到一张Myki卡，你可以同时在上面存点钱真的很容易每次你要出门，你都得在站点入口的Myki读卡器那里刷一下卡你下车以后，要在出站时再刷一下卡Myki系统会从你存在Myki卡上的总金额中扣去所需的费用我第一次购买时存入了30美元，从离我最近的站进城扣去我5.5美元行程约5千米，所以还不算贵Of course, at peak travel times around 5pm to 6pm in the evening and from 7.30am to 9am in the morning, Melbourne trains are usually full.
