Texto e Áudio em Inglês Simplificado c/Vocabulário! “Monitoring Microblogs” (Prof.Newton) #dicasdeinglês Monitoring microblogs Texto em Inglês Simplificado – nível intermediário e avançado Audio: http://http-ws.bbc.co.uk.edgesuite.net/mp3/learningenglish/2013/03/130311_witn_china_bloggers_report_130311_witn_china_microblogs_report_au_bb.mp3 If you write something politically sensitive on China’s microblogs, or Weibo, how quickly might it be deleted? Researchers in the United States have been looking into the issue and found some surprising results. With more than half a billion Chinese online, and many of them avid microbloggers, the speed of censorship uncovered on Sina Weibo is astonishing. The researchers mined data on microblog comments removed by administrators, and found that nearly a third of the deleted posts were taken down in the first 30 minutes. Unsurprisingly, criticism of the government, local scandals and complaints about China’s one-child policy were blocked most quick…

Who wants to live foreverQueen
There's no time for us
There's no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams
Yet slips away from us Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever There's no chance for us
It's all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever Who dares to love forever
Oh oo woh, when love must die But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips
And we can live forever
And we can love forever
Forever is our today Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Forever is our today
Who waits forever anyway?
TRANSLATIONQuem quer viver para sempre
Não há tempo para nós
Não há lugar para nós
O que é isso que constrói os nossos sonhos
E depois vai para longe de nós Quem quer viver para sempre?
Quem quer viver para sempre? Não há chance para nós
Tudo é decidido por nós
Este mundo reserva apenas um único doce momento para nós Quem quer viver para sempre?
Qu…

Texto em Inglês Simplificado c/áudio : Chavez’s Body (Prof.Newton) #dicasdeinglês Chavez’s body to be preserved and displayed Audio: http://http-ws.bbc.co.uk.edgesuite.net/mp3/learningenglish/2013/03/witn_130308_chavez_report_130308_witn_chavez_report_au_bb.mp3
The body of President Hugo Chavez is to go on permanent display in a military museum in Venezuela, like many socialist leaders before him.
No matter how baffling it may seem to outsiders, the allure of a dead socialist leader can’t be underestimated. In Moscow, Beijing and Hanoi, the corpses of Lenin, Mao and Ho Chi Minh are displayed under subdued lighting for equally subdued lines of people to file past, paying silent respects.
In North Korea, Kim Il-sung’s public resting place was recently renovated to accommodate the embalmed remains of his son Kim Jong-il.
In Beijing, visitors to Mao Zedong are encouraged to buy flowers for him, though they must leave them outside.
Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam’s revolutionary leader, wanted to be cr…

According to one survey, 75% of Europeans would have voted for President Obama if they could, compared to only 8% who would have chosen the Republican Mitt Romney. But what does Europe want from Obama’s second term?
In President Obama’s second term there are two longer-term developments that will affect the relationship with Europe. The first is the US budget deficit, the second the so-called “pivot” – or the rebalancing of focus towards Asia.
America’s finances will mean, now even more than in the first term, the US will be what some have called a “frugal superpower” – leading from behind as they did in Libya, and as they look to be doing in Ma…
