He was known tremendous energy and directing bands that were among the most long lived and consistently popular large ensembles in jazz. His work has been hailed by everyone from presidents to jazz critics and endorsed by the public through enthusiastic attendance of his permances and unending sales of his records.汉普顿录制了数百张唱片他以精力充沛,组建了爵士乐坛上长盛不衰的大型乐队而闻名遐迩他的作品受到了从总统到爵士乐家的赞赏和公众的持他们疯狂地观看他的演出,不断地购买他的唱片Hampton was born on April ,19,in Louisville, Kentucky. He began working as a drummer when he was a teenager. He spent many of his mative musical years in Los Angeles, playing with top local bands and some great national figures as they came through town. Among them were Louis Armstrong -- who first encouraged him to play the vibraphone and, later, Benny Goodman. He was one of the first musicians to bridge the racial gap between blacks and whites in jazz. He joined drummer Gene Krupa and pianist Teddy Wilson to m the multiracial Benny Goodman quartet in the 1930s. Hampton later recalled, “I didn’t recognize that it was a social advancement, but it was the first time blacks and whites ever played together out in public.”19年月日汉普顿出生在肯塔基州的路易斯维尔十几岁时他当了一名鼓手在洛杉矶度过的数年是他的音乐风格形成期他同当地顶尖的乐队和一些来小镇演出的杰出音乐人同台演出这里面有路易斯·阿姆斯特朗,是他第一个鼓励汉普顿演奏颤音琴后来他又遇到了本尼·古德曼汉普顿是第一个打破爵士乐中 种族隔阂的音乐人之一世纪30年代,他与鼓手吉恩·克鲁帕和钢琴演奏家特迪·威尔逊组建了多种族的本尼·古德曼四重奏乐团汉普顿后来回忆说:“我并没有意识到这是一种社会进步,但这确实是黑人和白人第一次在公众场合同台演出”By 1930, he was touring extensively on the West Coast with his own groups, making records and enjoying billing as the “fastest drummer in the world”,when he struck his first note on a vibraphone. He played with Armstrong’s group a year, establishing the vibraphone as a jazz instrument and himself as its top interpreter.到1930年,汉普顿同他的乐队沿西海岸巡演,录制音乐,荣登排行榜上“世界上最快的鼓手”这时他开始演奏颤音琴汉普顿同阿姆斯特朗的乐队演出了一年他把颤音琴确定为爵士乐的演奏乐器,而他自己也 成为该乐器最出色的阐释者Hampton played the vibes with lightning swiftness and harmonic and melodic simplicity and the drums with a fierce, driving rhythm. He became a household name after recording such hits as Moonglow and Dinah with Goodman in the 1930s and continued to make the charts in the 190s and 1950s.汉普顿演奏颜音琴时轻灵、和谐、旋律简洁优美,而击鼓时则活力四射,节奏强劲世纪30年代他与古德曼共同录制了热门金曲Moonglow和Dinah,成为家喻户晓的人物0年代和50年代他的唱片一直畅销不衰In 190,he left Goodman and started his own big band, featuring a big sound, swinging arrangements and such soloists as Washington. Hampton’s newly recorded big-band version of Flyin ’Home became a huge success. The band specialized in boogie-woogie, jump and later bop, and by the early 1950s it had become as much a rhythm and blues as a jazz attraction. But it nevertheless remained the medium the introduction of many jazz talents.190年汉普顿离开古德曼,组建了自己的大乐队该乐队演奏嘹亮,节奏强劲,并收罗了如华盛顿这样的独奏演员汉普顿重新录制的大乐队版的Hyin’Home取得了巨大的成功大乐队撞长演奏布基伍基乐曲、强节奏爵士乐和普爵士乐到世纪50年代早期,它以爵士乐和节奏布鲁斯闻名但它一直是许多爵士乐天才的摇篮Through all of it, Hampton once said, he had just one goal, “I want to be remembered sping happiness and goodwill.” He did just that.在经历了这一切后,汉普顿曾经说,他只有一个目标:“我想让世人记住我是在传播幸福和友善”他确实做到了 8019

  1.Problem of Global Warming1.全球变暖问题Global warming may or not be the great environmental crisisof the 1st century, but—regardless of weather it is or isnt— we wont do muchabout it. We will argue over it and may even, as a nation, make some fairlysolemn-sounding commitments to avoid it. But the more dramatic and meaningful thesecommitments seem, the less likely they are to be observed.全球变暖有可能是1世纪巨大的环境危机,也有可能不是,但是无论它是或不是我们对此都无能为力我们会争论不休,作为一个国家,或许会做出一些听起来相当认真的承诺来避免这一危机但是这些承诺看起来越是令人印象深刻、越是有意义,就越是不太可能被遵守 Al Gore calls global warming an “inconvenient truth,”as if merely recognizing it could put in on a path to a solution. But the realtruth is that we dont know enough to believe global warming, and — withourmajor technological breakthroughs — we cant do much about it.Al Gore 称全球变暖是一个“让人感到麻烦的事实”,似乎只要认识到它的存在就可以把我们带往一条解决问题的途经上去但是真正的事实是,我们没有掌握足够的知识去缓解全球变暖,并且如果没有重大的技术突破,我们对此也束手无策No government will adopt rigid restrictions oneconomic growth and personal freedom (limits on electricity usage, driving andtravel)that might cut back global warming. Still,politicians want to show theyre “doing something”. Consider the KyotoProtocol. It allowed countries that joined to punish those that didnt. But ithasnt reduced carbon dioxide emissions (up about 5% since 1990), and many signatoriesdidnt adopt tough enough policies to hit their — targets.没有哪个政府会对经济增长和个人自由(限制电力的使用,驾驶和旅游)采取严格的限制令,虽然这样的限制可以缓解全球变暖即便事实如此,执政者们还是想表明他们在“采取措施”就拿《京都协议来说吧,它允许其成员国惩罚非成员国但是它并没有起到减少二氧化碳的排放量(自从1990年以来上升了5%) 的作用,并且,许多签字国并没有采取足够严格的政策来尽力完成他们所制定的—年度的目标The practical conclusion is that if global warming is apotentail disaster, the only solution is new technology. Only an aggressiveresearch and development program might find ways of breaking our dependence onfossil fuels or dealing with it.比较实际的结论是,如果全球变暖是一个潜在的灾难,那么唯一的解决办法就是新技术只有积极进取的研究开发项目才可能会找到办法打破我们对于化石燃料的依赖,或者找到应对这一难题的办法The trouble with the global warming debate is that it hasbecome a moral problem when it really engineering one. The inconvenient truthis that if we dont solve the engineering problem, were helpless.全球变暖这场辩论所存在的问题是,它本是一个技术问题,却都已经变成了一个道德问题这个被忽视的真相就是,如果不能解决这个技术问题,我们将对此束手无策 388935
