找駕訓中心嗎?

摘自 Bremerton 的報紙 The Sun. Ask other parents and their children about their experience with the schools in your area. Ask to see and then compare the required Traffic Safety Education course curricula with the school’s course plan or outline. The TSE course curriculum sets the minimum standard for all schools. A better school will exceed the minimum standards. Ask the school’s employees to tell you what makes their course the right one for your child. Their answers should emphasize the training and experience of their instructors, time spent in the classroom, and the time your child will spend driving and observing other drivers. Look at the cost of the course. If there is a significant difference in the price you will pay, ask for an explanation of what your money will buy and compare the programs of the different schools. This course is an investment, not just in your child’s education but also in his or her safety, and in the safety of everyone who rides with your child in the future. Visit the school and ask to see the classroom and vehicle used for training. Does it compare favorably with your own thoughts on the environment in which you want your child learning to drive? Ask to observe a class. 最重要的別忘了去 Department of Licensing, 看看那個教駕車老師的執照有沒有因故被取消.

King County 的翻譯

King County 目前有兩種翻譯的方式. 一種是叫”景縣”或”景郡”, 這是廣東話的語音翻譯. King 聽起來像”景”的廣東話發音. 另一種是”國王郡”, 這是華語翻譯, 也是最沒有水準的翻譯法. 最早 King County 是從州政府 Olympia 的 Thurston County 分出. 原本是紀念副總統 William R. King (1786-1853). 在 1986 年, King County 改為紀念黑人民權領袖 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 原本 King County 的縣府標志也要跟著更改成金恩博士的人頭. 只是更換縣府標志的花費太大…至少三百萬美元. 所以只有放棄. 不過支持換縣府標志的聲音, 每幾年總是會一再的出現. 目前這個國王的標志還在繼續的使用. 所以正確的 King County 翻譯應該是”金恩郡”…紀念金恩博士.

減肥, 每天吃三個蘋果

網站

Well, 在 Wenatchee (華盛頓州的蘋果產地) Gold's Gym 的 減肥師(dietitian) Tammi Flynn 發現. 同樣的人, 有同樣的飲食習慣, 同樣的運動. 可是有些人卻瘦得比較快. 經過她的觀察, 發現原來問題是出在蘋果. 常吃蘋果的人瘦得比較快. 現在 Gold's Gym, 和華盛頓州蘋果協會合作, 開始利用這個發現的推廣減肥, 當然順便多賣些蘋果.

記得要多吃華盛頓州產的蘋果喔…!!!
