May 23, 2010 Sun    <Opening>


People are looking forward to enjoying holidays coming up especially this week as well. You know there is nothing wrong with staying home. It’s a good opportunity to spend time with family. Perhaps relax and take it easy. Recharge your batteries!


<News1: Deficit in Greece making a problem>


Now fears are growing that the bailout in Greece won’t work that could cause riffle effects across Europe and here in the United States

> 그리스의 구제금융조치가 효과가 없을 것이며 유럽 및 미국에 대한 파급효과를 유발 시키리라는 우려가 확산 되고 있습니다


*Bailout: Urgent financial assistance to revive the bear economy > 긴급 금융 구제조치

*Riffle effects: the effect to affect or relate to something > 파급효과


<John’s paraphrasing 1>

In Greece they appeared to be having money problems. The economy is not doing very well. However we are the world. Then of course says we are one big world. We try to help each other Different countries, governments around the world are trying to help Greece. However they are worried what if we give them money and it doesn’t solve the problem.

If that is the result the problem could be developing get worse even across Europe and even reaching into the United States


<News2: Mate Good for Health>

Mate does have disease fighting antioxidants along with nutrients like calcium, iron and vitamin C. Mate does contain a small amount of caffeine but much of its boost comes from other natural stimulants


> mate에는 칼슘, 철분, 비타민C와 같은 영양소들과 함께 질병을 억제하는 항 산화물질을 함유 하고 있습니다.  Mate에는 소량의 카페인이 함유되어 있지만 하지만 Mate(차의 종류)의 인기는 다른 자연적 각성성분 때문입니다.


*Antioxidant: the powerful cell to fight against disease making cells > 항산화제

*Stimulant: substances to wake up the mind > 각성제


<John’s paraphrasing 2>


Regarding items that are good for your health there is a beverage on the market. You might be interested in. Well what is it? It contains many things supposedly are good for you.

Nutrients such vitamins and iron and calcium now be warned that there is a little bit of caffeine in there. But it’s not so much. In fact it does give you energy It lifts you up. It boosts you and makes you feel stimulated. But that comes from natural things, perhaps Gin-Sang and other things like that. It’s not so much caffeine.

Are you speaking of the ice houses traditionally made by Eskimos? These days the  weather is getting warmer but sometimes some people might feel a little bit cold in their hearts. So maybe we need an Igloo to warm up our hearts


<Morning Words>

Kick off: such as soccer game, to start or begin something > 본격적으로 시작하다


Break off: Very fast or sharp end something > 갑자기 끝내다, (관계 등) 결렬되다


Lay off: similar to break off, quickly but gradually stop doing something

<LST: About layoff>

Here you go. Treat every day as a job interview while may be tempting to slack off.

If job got to allure me, you should treat every day as a job interview with the current

employer. Act and address to impress be passion it about your work every day. So find

all the answers inside you


<John’s Recap>

Jake, you seem to be on a diet these days. I notice you are getting a spare tire. I don’t know how you are going to do it. Perhaps the best way to kick off a diet is to decide to lay off all the potato chips to lay off all the sweats, to lay off the snacks. If you don’t do it, probably Min-hi is going to break off with you. So you better kick off your diet right.


<Screen: 저 사람이 여기 주인이에요>

B: Oh, really! Then could you ask the gentlemen behind us to please put out his cigarette?

A: I can’t do that. That’s Earl. He owns the place (=He’s the boss in the place)

> 그건 안 돼요. 그는 Earl인데 가게 주인이거든요

people off and also said more women than men took a deep breath to calm down

Wow! Big story! Gil-dong wanted to be a rock star you know, and so he went to a local

club for open might night. He got a bomb on stage

His hair was slicked back and he was wearing a shinny bright shirt and all the girls fell

in love with him. Oh, he had chased them off. In fact so many girls were following him

You know what we came in third place, not bed.

doing very well. Business is dropping off. I asked  “why? What’s going on?”
Just a few months ago, business was good. He told me It was a good idea. 
A lot of other
번데기 restaurant opened around him, a lot of competition.

So he felt very depressed. I said “ Hey, 길동, You got to square off.  You’d square off against the competition. Don’t goof off wasting time. Don’t be afraid. You were the first. You’re the best. You got to bring your business again.” I’ll go back next week to check in his 번데기 restaurant.


제이크.  내가 약간 한가했을 나는 길동의 번데기 식당을 방문하기 위해 도시 북쪽에 갔었어. 그가 상황이 좋지 않다고 말했었어. 사업이 하향하고 있었어. 나는 ? 무슨일이냐고 물었지. 달전에 사업은 잘되고 있었어. 그는 주변에 많은 번데기 레스토랑이 열리고 많은 경쟁이 생겼다고 말했어. 그는 매우 침체되어 있었지. “길동아! 싸워야지, 경쟁에 맞서야 . 시간을 허비하며 빈둥거리지마. 두려워하지마. 네가 최초였고, 네가 최고야. 다시 사업으로 돌아가.” 라고 말했어. 다음주에 그의 번데기 레스토랑을 한번 체크하러 다시 가봐야겠어.

<News 1: What to expect at a science café>


There is a movement to bring scientists out of the lab and into the community for dialog over dinner and drinks. There are now more than a hundred science cafés at bars and restaurants throughout the United States.


> 과학자들이 실험실 밖으로 나와 지역사회 주민들과 저녁식사와 음료를 마시며 어울리는 운동이 일고 있습니다. 현재 미국 전역에 100개 이상의 바와 식당에 과학카페들을 마련해 놓고 있습니다.


<John’s Paraphrasing 1>

Scientists are known for spending their time and energy in the laboratory. However they have been perhaps removed from the rest of a society.


So there is now a campaign or movement to bring the scientists back together with other people.


They have been invited to come, spend their time enjoying social activities, eating dinner together having some drinks together


This environment can be found in cafés which are probably located in restaurants and bars all over the United States



<News 2: Marshmallows test may help predict kids’ success in life>

Focus and self-control are two of the essential life skills. They’re simple ideas, but (they are) difficult to master in a wired society where multi-taking is valued

<John’s Paraphrasing 2>

To survive in this world there are many skills we need. There are many necessary, essential things to do just to live. Two of them are focus and self control.


Well that might sound easy. That might sound like a lot of common sense. But the truth is it’s very difficult to develop good skills in focusing and self control. Why?


Because in this thing of age and in this modern society, in the internet connected wire society we are all required to do so many things at the same time. It’s difficult to focus.

1. tell off : ~에게 호통치다, 야단치다 (scold, yell at)

3. top off : 가득 채우다 (fill)

Always top off the tank before taking a long drive.

장거리 운전을 하기 전에 항상 연료를 가득 채워.


영어 단어 풀이


1. tell off

To tell, we know, is to provide information with your voice to talk to someone.

However to tell off is a little different. To tell off is to angrily scold someone or

to yell at someone.


2. wean off

Ah, to wean W E A N, 'wean' has a feeling of gradually reducing.

We all have seen the stories of dogs and puppies. Puppies will depend on

the mother dog for some time to get their food, to get their milk.

After a while, the mother dog will say "Enough is enough. 'Two Tables, Four Tables'

_이판사판' Time to wean off!" and she will push the puppies away.


3. top off

To top off is to fill some container all the way to the top, whether is's a cup of coffee,

the gas tank in your car, or very large train container. It doesn't matter.

To top off is to fill to the top.


John's Recap

Oh, we've got a big problem around here apartment.

Last night 길동 said to me "Hey John, the car's gas tank is empty.

How about that! Why don't you give me 100,000\, so I can top off the tank."

So I said "길동, who do you think I am? I'm not your father.

I'm tired giving you money that filled the gas tank. What's going on?

You should get a job."

He said "Wowowowow, why are you telling me off?"

I told him "Here's the problem. You expect me to pay for your gas.

I've got to wean you off this problem.

You've got to get your own job and top off your tank."

So he's a little, he's a little depressed today.



어젯밤에 생긴 문제인데....

길동 : 좐, 내 차의 기름 떨어졌어. 이런! 만땅으로 채우게 100,000원만 내놔봐.

John : 길동아~ 내가 네 아버지냐? 돈 맡겨놨냐? 네 기름 넣어 주는 거 이젠

지긋지긋해. 알간? 이제 놀지 말고 돈 벌어!”

길동 : 어어~~ 왜 나만 갖고 그래?

John : 왜 내가 네 기름을 넣어줘야 되냐?. 네가 벌어 기름 넣고 다녀.

나좀 뜯어먹지 말고.

그래서 길동이는 오늘 어깨가 축 쳐져 보였다.

I totally disagree with this. Now the theory is that in January on the second Monday you

should clean off the desk.


Some people who are very concerned about this say well, a messy desk is not a sign of

creative mind. It is unprofessional. Your credibility is at stake when visitors enter your

office. Albert Einstein disagrees.


<John’s recap>


You know, many years ago when 길동 and I were roommates. I did all the cooking, not because he did like cooking, but because his cooking tasted terrible. So I cooked everyday. His job was to clean off the table and prepare for all the meals. Ah, it became a source of arguement. Everyday we argued about the same issue.
Finally I said, "Look look look I'll cook, you'll clean. Let's get off the subject. Let's please talk about something else." Oh, he got upset. He started bouncing off the walls and complaining about so many things it.
Oh, finally we just decided. We each cooked for ourselves. Yeah, I gained. He lost 15kg.

알다시피 오래 전 길동이와 나는 룸메이트였어. 녀석의 음식솜씨가 형편 없었고 요리하는 것도 별로 좋아하지 않는지라. 맨날천날 내가 내가 요리를 했어. 아무리 서빙으로 밥벌이를 해도 그렇지 말야. 그러다 보니 우린 각자의 식사때의 역할 때문에 매일같이 싸웠어. 결국 내가 "야~ 누구는 맨날 요리하고 누구는 맨날 치우기만 치우고 불공평하지 않냐? 그러니까  다시 합의보자."라고 하니까 화를 버럭 내더니 제딴에 그간 품고 있던 되지도 않는 불만들을 막 늘어놓기 시작했어. 우린 직접 자기 밥은 자기가 해 먹기로 합의를 봤어. 그러고 나니 난 살이 점점 오르고 녀석은 피골이 상접하게 되었어.

1. take off : (서둘러) 떠나다, 가다 (leave, go)

I'm going to take off now, unless you need something.

뭐 필요한 거 없으면 나 지금 갈게.

2. slack off : 게으름을 부리다, 태만해지다 (be lazy, don't do responsibilities)

When you slack off, everybody suffers.

네가 게으름을 부리면 모든 사람이 괴로워해.

3. work off : 체중을 빼다, 몸을 움직여 ~을 제거하다 (lose by exercising)

Holiday snacking has given me some weight to work off.

휴가 때 먹은 게 운동을 해서 빼야 할 정도의 체중이 되었네.


영어 단어 풀이

1. take off

When we imagine perhaps an airplane or a rocket, when it begins to leave,

it goes fase. To take off, then, means to leave but kind of in a hurry, to go quickly.


2. slack off

Ah, the word 'slack'. 'Slack' really means loose. If we have a string or a rope,

it might be pulled very tightly. Well the opposite, then, is slack or a string is very loose.

If we might think about a behavior, not tight, not organized, but if you slack off,

perhaps you're being very lazy, kind of boring, just hanging around.


3. work off

Ah, to work off. Perhaps you're trying to lose weight. You know summer's on the way.

You wanna look good on that bikini. You've got to lose some weight and how?

You've got to exercise. That's right. You've got to work off those unwanted extra pounds.

Work off, lose weight by exercising.


John's Recap

You know this is a kind of sceret. So I'm not gonna mention 길동's name.

Oh, anyway he decided that he had to gain some extra weight.

So he wanted to meet a given some coaching advice.

We went to the health club together. He's trying to work off those extra pounds,

but he's falling asleep all exercising and just slacking off all the time, so I said,

"Hey 길동, if you gonna slack off, if you're gonna be a slacker,

(you're) not goona work off those pounds. I'm gonna take off.

I've got a thing to do. So I left. I think he went to sleep.

We have so many scientific people doing researches. They have told us Tuesday afternoon is the best time to show off in front of the boss.

Monday afternoons are a good time to put in for holidays and Wednesday is a good time to ask your boss for a pay raise. In fact every Wednesday ask your boss to pay raise.


<John’s Recap>

You know, the other day, I got into an elevator with 홍길동. In the elevator was a big mirror. As soon as we were into the elevator, I noticed that 길동 was looking at his body and saying "Woo~". My muscles were getting bigger. He started flexing and showing off. He tried to pass off himself the some kind of a body builder. I followed maybe that's a good idea. So I did it, too. I saw our both flexing and showing our muscles in the elevator. I think 길동 is starting to rub off on me. I'm getting worried now.

얼마 전 길동이와 난 엘리베이터를 탔는데 거기엔 큰 거울이 하나 있었어. 그 엘리베이터에 타자마자 길동인 몸매자랑을 하려는 것 같더라구. “우~” 내 근육도 점점 들썩이기 시작했어. 드디어 그는 근육을 드러내며 과시하기 시작했어. 마치 자기가 보디빌더 인 양 말야. 나도 괜찮아 보여서 따라했어. 둘이서 똑같이 그짓을 하면서 말야. 길동이가 나랑 친해졌다고 생각할는지는 모르지만 난 별로 내키지가 않아.

<Screen: 어차피 그곳에 들러야 해요>

A: Are you pulling my leg? > 지금 나 놀리는 거요?


<Pops: Alice –Avril Lavigne->

Tripping out spinning around/ I’m underground I fell down yeah I fell down

> 정신이 혼미해요 빙글빙글 돌아요/ 난 지금 지하세계에 있어요 내가 떨어졌어요


(*freak out=trip out: kind of losing one’s mind, trip over something)

1. doze off : 잠이 들다, (저도 모르게) 깜빡 졸다 (fall asleep)

You doze off every single time we go to the movies.

넌 우리가 영화 보러 갈 때마다 조는구나.

2. give off : (냄새, 열, 빛 등을) 발하다, 풍기다 (produce)

An aromatic candle will give off a nice scent.

향기로운 초는 좋은 향을 풍길 거야.

3. fight off : ~와 싸워 물리치다 (defend against)

Drink juice t fight off a cold.

감기를 몰아내게 주스 마셔.


영어 단어 풀이

1. doze off

Well, we know that the word 'doze' is in reference to sleeping.

And when we talk about sleeping, we talk about taking a nap or falling asleep

or sleeping or sleep over, so many different words. The word 'doze, D O Z E' really

has a feeling of falling asleep and sleeping a little bit lightly, not a very deep sleep.


2. give off

To give off. Oh, to give away is to perhaps give someone a present,

to give someone a gift, but to give off is to emit, E M I T, to produce some sort of

a color, sound, a smell, something like this to give away from maybe your body.


3. fight off

Ah, to fight off. 'Fight off' gives us a feeling that you're trying to prevent something.

Perhaps you're fighting, I know Jake has a lot of fans, so when Jake goes downtown,

all the girls are screaming "Jake 오빠, Jake 오빠." He's fighting off all the girls.


John's Recap

"Jake! Jake! Wake up!" Oh man, I always know when you doze off

because everytime you doze off, you give off that sound "(의성어)"

That's how I know you doze off. You give off a sound.

If you wanna fight off dozing, if you wanna fight off sleepiness,

perhaps you can drink some orange juice or stand up and run around room

for a while to get some energy.

Jake, I’m not sure if you remember but quite a few years ago when Gil-dong was feeling very adventurous.

And he said I want to thank you for my mother and my brother and my sister and my friends. Hey, you’re rattling off all these names. Just get on the plane. You are going to miss your flight

1. pay off : 성과를 올리다, 결실을 맺다 (provide benefit)

Hard work will pay off in the end.

열심히 노력하면 결국 그 결실을 얻기 마련이야.

2. shve off : 수염을 깎다, 면도하다 (remove)

That high price would scare off most consumers.

그렇게 높은 가격은 대부분의 소비자를 지레 겁먹고 도망치게 할 거야.

3. scare off : 겁을 주어 ~을 쫓아 버리다 (repel, push away)

She said no kissing until I shave off my beard.

그녀는 내가 면도를 해야 입맞춤할 수 있다고 했어.


영어 단어 풀이 

1. pay off

Um, to pay, of course, refers to giving money. However sometimes we might receive

a benefit that is not money. We might develop our skills, we might improve in some way.

To pay off is to give some sort of a benefit.


2. shave off

Ah, yeah, to shave, well of course, we know to shave means to remove hair.

So if you shave off a beard, you shave off a mustache, simply you're removing it,

cutting it off.


3. scare off

Woo, very frightening word, scare, we know the verb scare means to give someone

a bad feeling, give someone a fright, to make someone run away

because they're afraid with them. In that case, we will use this expression 'to scare off'

basically making someone leave, get out of here, go away. Scare off.


John's Recap

Wow, you know I'm not sure radio was a good place to tell the story.

It's kind of a private story about my friend. His name is Jake. In fact, he had a very big

beard and mustache and so he was having a hard time finding a date.

I told him, "You've got to shave off that beard. You're scaring off all the girl

with that beard. I promise if you shave off that beard and shave off that mustache,

go ahead, shave off that hair on your head, too. I'm sure to pay off.

You'll have a lot more date. So I think he's gonna do it.

Turn on the TV and what do you see? Morning, afternoon, evening, every channel, we see news of natural disasters. Earthquakes, volcanoes etc. It's all over everywhere. What's going on the world is angry. It's going to be explode. Now, wait a minute, relax, calm down. Although religious leaders tell us for thousands of years the end of the world is near. The news saids, No, it's not. Relax, take it easy.

Are you looking for a job? What do you want to be? What kind of career, do you wanna have? You might be influenced by what you see movies and television. You might think "Wow, James Bond drives a nice car. I wanna be spy". The truth is, it's hardly than it looks. Nurses in fact, in the United States are very unhappy about the image they have television shows and movies. They are not very happy with what's happening in Hollywood.

1) profession: 전문직, 직업

2) concern: 걱정, 우려, 염려, 관심사 

3) portray: 묘사하다, 나타내다.

1. rip off : ~에게 바가지를 씌우다. (cheat, overcharge)

   A street vendor might rip off a tourist if he can.

   노점상은 관광객에게 바가지를 씌울 수도 있어.

2. shoot off : 보내다, 전송하다 (send)

   Shoot off a text when you get the time.

   시간 날 때 문자 보내.

3. switch off : (스위치 등을 눌러서) 끄다 (turn off)

Last one out, switch off the lights.

영어 단어 풀이

1. rip off
Rip off. Again the word R I P, we know, has ths feeling of very fast action,

but the word rip off, in fact, means to steal from someone or to cheat someone

maybe even for overcharge.

2. shoot off

Ah, yeah, shoot. Well, you're taking a picture with your camera or firing a gun,

both of these use the word shoot. What does that mean?

To do something very quickly. To shoot off, then, is to perhaps send something very quickly.

perhaps an e-mail or a letter or a text message. Shoot off a text to me.

3. switch off

Ah yeah well, think about this, switch. When you enter a room and the room is very dark. What is the first

thing you look for? You might look for a switch on the wall and then

you will switch on the light and when, of course, you're leaving the room

you wil switch off the light. So think of using the switch to turn on or turn off the light,

as a way, of course, seeing or saving energy, use the expression sometimes

switch on and switch off. 

John's Recap
You know, these days 길동's in a bad mood. First of all 민희 shut down his proposal

and then some bills came in the mail. His electric bill was very high.

He thought something's wrong. So he wrote a long e-mail to the electric company.

He said "I think you people are trying to rip off me on this deal.

I'm paying too much for my electric bill." He shot off the e-mail to them

and he waited a few days. Finally they were abele to shoot off an e-mail back to him.

Very simple, one line in their e-mail to 길동. They said "Mr.홍길동. Swithc off your lights.

Save money." Yeah, so, now he's walking around in his house in the dark with a candle.
