美国梦

 


 

周一发布的一项新调查显示,对许多美国人而言,他们心中的“美国梦”就是给孩子一个更好的生活或拥有成功的事业。
For most Americans giving their children a better life or having a successful business or career is their version of the American Dream, according to a new poll released on Monday.
这项有关“美国梦”的调查是由电视新闻节目《60分钟》和《名利场》杂志联合进行的,受访的美国人中有53%的人称孩子的幸福是最重要的。
Their children's welfare was the top priority for 53 percent of Americans questioned about the American Dream in a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair survey.
其次才是职业前景、一夜暴富、拥有房产、超越父辈和成名等梦想。尽管真人秀电视节目很火,但是只有3%的人梦想成名。
It surpassed job prospects, getting rich overnight, owning a home, doing better than your parents, and becoming famous, which despite reality television was chosen by only three percent.
这次电话民意调查涵盖了近1.1万人,调查还显示四分之一的美国人认为演员查理?辛是最有可能步《花花公子》出版商休?赫夫纳的后尘的人。
The telephone poll of nearly 11,000 people also showed that one in four Americans believe actor Charlie Sheen is the most likely person to fill Playboy publisher Hugh Hefner's slippers when he is gone.
该调查还让人们预测加拿大少年歌星贾斯汀?比伯30岁时的动向,30%的被调查者认为比伯可能会在名人康复所,而18%的人认为他那时会结婚,在某处安静地生活。
Thirty percent of people, when asked what they thought teenage Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber will be doing at age 30, said he will likely be in celebrity rehab, while 18 percent said that he'd be married and living quietly somewhere.
只有20%的人认为比伯30岁时还会在爆满的场馆中表演。
Only 20 percent of people said they thought he'd still be playing in front of packed stadiums.
对于在结婚前签订婚前协议的做法,支持和反对的美国人各占一半。此外,已经分居或离婚的夫妇中有60%认为这是明智之举,这并不让人意外。
Americans were evenly split on whether it is a good idea to have a prenuptial agreement before getting married. Not surprisingly 60 percent of separated or divorced couples said they thought it was a smart move.
尽管减肥书籍销量很稳定,但有56%的美国人说他们从未试过减肥,另有27%的美国人说他们一年减肥一到两次。
And despite a steady stream of diet books, 56 percent of Americans said they never try to lose weight and 27 percent said they try to slim down once or twice a year.
多达70%的美国人说,如果为了避免2007年8月弗吉尼亚理工大学那样的枪击事件而允许学生夹带武器进教室,他们并不会因此觉得更安全。
A whopping 70 percent of Americans said that they would not feel safer if concealed weapons were allowed in classrooms to prevent shootings such as the one that occurred at Virginia Tech in August 2007.
