[00:02]The incident occurred on May 12.
[00:06]The 38-year-old plumber told police afterward
[00:10]that it was a bet;
[00:12]his boss told him he'd pay a week's salary if he did it.
[00:18]Coakley faced up to a year in prison.
[00:21]His lawyer says he's very sorry.
[00:30.19]Imports of industrial supplies and materials, which
[00:34.33]include minerals, chemicals and lumber used in U.S.
[00:38.64]manufacturing, fell in April as did imports of new cars
[00:48.42]Many folks see silver linings to this slowdown.
[00:53.04]Potential home buyers would cheer for lower interest rates.
[00:58.17]Employers wouldn't mind a little fewer bubbles
[01:01.84]in the job market.
[01:08.59]South of where I swam was a sheltered cove,
[01:12.25]Pebble Beach, protected from the wind,
[01:15.72]its namesake pebbles warmed by the unclouded sun.
[01:20.55]Under the water lay thick-bodied ocher starfish,
[01:24.35]and on its surface floated the bulbous heads of bull kelp.
[01:32.10]Rattlesnakes hid when they heard him coming,
[01:35.41]because Pecos Bill's bite might poison them.
[01:39.92]He used mountain lions for saddle horses,
[01:43.28]invented centipedes and tarantulas for pets.
[01:52.35]Six months later it seemed I had solved the riddle
[01:56.48]I was signed up on a graduate trainee programme,
[02:00.38]training to be a physics teacher.
[02:02.83]It had not been a particularly easy decision,
[02:06.50]the cut in salary would be substantial, but it felt right.
[02:14.63]People of all ages (but pretty much just one race
[02:20.06]huddle together in the 30 degree Orem, Utah, chill.
[02:24.78]Just before 8,
[02:26.29]the eager concertgoers start chanting the singers' names.
[02:35.01]At 17 he was found guilty of manslaughter
[02:38.63]for killing someone in a knife fight.
[02:41.57]Out on parole for that crime,
[02:44.09]he was caught with a handgun
[02:46.40]and went back to prison,
[02:48.61]where he punched a guard during a riot.
[02:57.91]The paddlers maneuvered their craft
[03:00.96]to surf the tumbling water,
[03:03.75]like ocean surfers riding the big one.
[03:08.05]They disappeared underwater in rolls
[03:11.45]flipping their kayaks upside down
[03:14.28]and using the paddles to push back up.
[03:19.84]A: Have you read today's paper?
[03:21.74]It says Italian riot police arrested a dozen men
[03:26.15]making riots in the street.
[03:28.61]B: Yeah, already read it.内容来自 听力课堂网：http://www.tingclass.net/show-8124-237437-1.html
