Haleiwa town(哈尔伊瓦城)

By Freelance Chinese Translator Li – English to Chinese translation services - based in China.
People travel from all over the world for a taste of country living in historic Haleiwa(哈尔伊瓦) town, located on the North Shore of Oahu. It may be a surfer seeking to ride a wave at any of the numerous world-class surf spots found along the coast, or an art enthusiast wanting to dive into a cultural hub(文化中心).
And nobody's trip to Haleiwa is complete without a stop at Matsumoto(松本)'s or Aoki's for a classic shave ice. But the seemingly quaint(少见的) surf town is actually rich in plantation era history that lives on through its old-fashioned ambiance(氛围). A preserved piece of the past comes together with a colorfully thriving community to make Haleiwa a must-see destination. The picturesque town's main street, filled with early 20th century architecture and nestled(依偎) against the backdrop of majestic Kaena Point(卡伊那), exudes the kind of charm that seems to only exist in movies. "I see a double rainbow almost every weekend," says artist and wax chandler(蜡销售商) Scott Bechtol, who runs The Iwa Gallery in the center of town. His is one of many vibrant galleries(美术馆), all of which display local artists' work. "Appreciating nature and its beauty is a community view that's reflected in the art," says Wyland Gallery Haleiwa's senior art consultant Matt Maletta. This is no surprise, as the area's gorgeous setting is impossible to ignore. Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, or honu, are often found basking(晒太阳) in the sand at beautiful Laniakea Beach (also known as "Turtle Beach"(海龟海滩)). In fact, there are many ways to soak up the outdoors while in Haleiwa, like renting jet skis for the adventure seeker or trying your hand at kayaking and stand up paddle boarding for a day of family fun. Locals and tourists alike also love to escape from the excitement of Waikiki to a haven of quiet boutiques(精品店), surf shops and laid back restaurants.
The host of food trucks scattered about are just as popular, selling favorites like fresh shrimp(虾) from nearby town, Kahuku. And there's one local snack(点心) that Haleiwa residents, especially kids, can't live without — Ken Terukina's pickled mango. The lifelong Haleiwa resident has been selling the refreshingly sweet snack from his house for 15 years and counting (just follow the "pickled mango"(腌芒果) sign at the foot of the stop sign past Anahulu Stream Bridge). There is no place on Oahu quite like distinguished Haleiwa. With a firm grasp on its roots, the friendly town continues to gleam(闪闪发亮) with life and is the perfect place to spend the day.

A Visit to Germaine's Luau(参加杰曼的夏威夷宴会)

By Freelance Chinese Translator Li – English to Chinese translation services - based in China.
No trip to Hawaii would be complete without a Mai Tai, a hula
lesson, a plate full of delicious Kalua pork(烤猪排) and a magnificent sunset on the beach.

Thanks to Germaine’s Luau(杰曼的夏威夷宴会), an Oahu attraction that has delighted visitors for more than three
decades, you can enjoy all of these experiences in a single, unforgettable

This venerable(令人尊重的) luau takes place in Kapolei near Barber’s Point on the southwestern tip of Oahu, about
27 miles from Waikiki. If you’re driving, you’ll want to leave your hotel early to beat rush-hour traffic, or even
spend the day on the North Shore before heading for Kapolei. Germaine’s gates open at 5:15 p.m., so you can claim
the best seats in an outdoor theatre area filled with long picnic tables and
low luau tables surrounded by tatami mats(榻榻米席垫)—perfect for kids!

If you’d rather not drive—or if you’re looking for the full
Germaine’s experience—ask about the free shuttle(飞机) when you make your luau reservations(预订). Germaine’s provides door-to-door service to and from Waikiki
hotels. Traffic and the buses’ meandering routes(蜿蜒曲折的路线) can expand the ride to Kapolei into a two-hour odyssey(探险) (the nighttime ride back is much shorter).
But it’s a comfy(舒适的) trip, and you’ll be surrounded by like-minded luau-goers and
amused by the patter of the tour guide(导游的顺口溜).

Upon arrival, a Germaine’s shutterbug(摄影爱好者) will photograph your group against a lovely natural backdrop of
dusky sky(以昏暗的天空,海滩和大海为自然背景), beach and sea. (Photos may be purchased for $20 at the end of the
evening.) Belly up to the outdoor bar and redeem(买) one of your three complimentary adult beverage tickets for a
Mai-Tai, rum punch, Blue Hawaii, or domestic beer; unlimited soft drinks,
coffee and tea are also available.

As the sun begins to set, an emcee(主持人) introduces the “Royal Court” while a five-piece band plays island standards. Dancers clad in
regal crimson(华丽的深红色) and yellow
take the stage in a ceremony(典礼) that provides a brief introduction to ancient Hawaiian protocol(礼仪). Several good-humored volunteers from the
audience are invited to show off their best hula moves in a riotous “contest.”(欢腾的竞赛) Then, it’s time for the feast!

Germaine’s claims to be one of the few
commercial luaus in Hawaii that cooks a pig each day in its traditional imu pit(浅灶坑), located just behind its outdoor bar. At
about 6:15 each evening, as the crowd watches hungrily, two men clad in bright
lava-lavas are charged with opening and unwrapping the imu and retrieving the
Kalua pork. Tender, smoky, and succulent(味美), the shredded pork is simply delectable.

The buffet tables are laden with standard
luau fare like lomi-lomi salmon(鲑鱼), chicken long rice, fried mahi, and poi(山芋). Don’t be afraid of the poi! Try it as a
condiment with the salmon or Kalua pork. Fried chicken, teriyaki(红烧的) beef, steamed rice, dinner rolls, and a
quartet of salads (green, macaroni(意大利通心粉), coleslaw(卷心菜沙拉), and three-bean) are also available, and the dessert tables feature
treats like fresh pineapple(凤梨), haupia (coconut pudding), and chocolate cake.

At about 7, the stage show recommences(重新开始). Dancers representing(代表) Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa(萨摩亚群岛) and Tahiti(塔希提) provide spectacular and colorful
entertainment, often accompanied by ipu and uli uli (gourd drums and rattles).
Highlights include a dramatic Samoan fire-knife dance, a sensual Tahitian
couples’ hula, and a Maori dance with glowing “poi balls,” as well as several
opportunities for audience participation (and a door prize drawing, too!)

Hawaii’s climates(夏威夷的气候)

By Freelance Chinese Translator Li – English to Chinese translation services - based in China.

The Hawaiian Islands exist because of a hot spot beneath the earth’s slow-moving Pacific Plate, which has been spewing lava(喷涌的熔岩) and creating islands for 70 million years. Today, the state of Hawaii contains eight main islands, only six of which are populated.

Measure for measure(以牙还牙), the Hawaiian islands are as diverse as it gets. Their flora and fauna(动植物群) are a textbook case of Darwinian evolution(达尔文进化论). Time and time again, single migratory(迁徙的) species blossomed into dozens of variations, as isolated individuals adapted to arid coastal deserts(干燥的沿海沙漠), rain forests and snow-capped subarctic mountaintops. As a result, the majority of Hawaiian plants and animals are endemic(特有的), and nearly as often, endangered(濒危的).

All the islands have similar climates: southwestern coasts are sunny, dry and lined with sandy beaches, while the northeastern sides have lush rain forests, cascading waterfalls and pounding surf. Hawaii enjoys warm weather year-round, with coastal temperatures averaging a high of 83°F (28°C) and a low of 68°F (20°C). Summer and fall are the driest seasons, winter the wettest.

WHALE WATCHING (Seasonal between December 15 - April 15)观鲸(12月中旬到4月中旬)

By Freelance Chinese Translator Li – English to Chinese translation services - based in China.

Each year, from late December through April, humpback whales(座头鲸) migrate to the warm waters of Hawaii to calve(生产), mate and rear their young. The shallow waters surrounding Maui are known as the "cradle(摇篮) of the humpback" due to the fact that a large number of humpbacks are raised in this area. Calves are born weighing in at around 3000 pounds and grow at a rate of 200 pounds a day during the first few weeks of life. The adults have been known to reach 45 feet in length and may weigh up to 40 tons. The humpback whale has been protected from whaling in U.S. waters since 1966 and is presently listed as an endangered species(濒危物种). Education is our most effective tool in saving this species from extinction. Viewing these majestic creatures from our whale watching boats is not only one of the most exciting things you will ever do, but narration by our naturalists will enlighten you to the life of the humpback whales.Highlights:Four Winds II combines a whale watch with a snorkel excursion(潜水游) every afternoon during whale season. Not only will you be able to view the activity of the humpback (like awesome breaches(可怕的破坏), peck and tail slaps and more!), but you'll spend a lazy afternoon snorkeling and water sliding while our crew grills(烧烤) up the best burgers and chicken on Maui and serves you your choice of beverages(饮料). This is one of the best trips of it's kind!

What is a diversity initiative?(何为多样化战略?)

By Freelance Chinese Translator Li – English to Chinese translation services - based in China.

A "diversity initiative" is an organizations strategic response to diversity. The initiative looks at the internal and external needs of the organization in the area of diversity and responds with a strategically aligned(协调的) approach.

Initiatives can have a short or long-term focus, as well as very specific goals and objectives. It should also be easily measurable and tied to the organization's overall business strategy. In terms of implementing the initiative, the entire organization - from the top down(从上到下) - should be held accountable for implementation and the overall success.

What does it entail?(其首要条件?)
Usually organizations begin with a statement by top management that the initiative is an organizational priority. The initiative must have visible support from top management(管理层) in order to be effective; it should also have long-term organizational viability(生存能力) and sustainability.

According to a 2001 Society for Human Resource Management/Fortune survey, the majority of the 121 US HR professionals who responded said that diversity initiatives affect their organizations’ bottom lines(底线) in several positive ways including:

·improved corporate culture(企业文化)
·improved recruitment of new employees
·improved client relations
·improved productivity

A Vision(愿景)
After the evidence of top management support, the organization may then want to develop a vision for diversity. It is a good idea to include various people from different departments in the development of the vision statement. This process helps to ensure buy-in(接受,买入) and reduce resistance(阻力).

A Plan(计划)
Once the vision has been developed, the organization should then develop a diversity plan. The plan outlines the goals and objectives for diversity. Many employers see fit to appoint a diversity committee, comprised of a wide variety of people and perspectives(观点,视角), to help implement the plan. The plan may call for training on diversity, enhancing recruiting efforts to attract and retain underrepresented groups(未被充分代表的群体), or looking at succession(继任) planning, among other issues.

How can I get my organization to start a diversity initiative?
Build a business case(案例) for a diversity initiative. Look at business priorities and the changing demographics of your area. Review the need to increase, maintain and sustain customer relationships with diverse populations. You may also want to examine your recruiting efforts to determine whether your company is taking advantage of diverse populations. In essence, you would have to construct a strong argument(论证) based on business necessity. Your case would likely include what your agency has lost by not taking advantage of diversity and what it would gain by diversifying its employee pool.

By answering these questions, you will help your agency make an informed(信息充分) decision about starting and succeeding with a diversity initiative.

Welcome to Hawaii(夏威夷欢迎你)

By Freelance Chinese Translator Li – English to Chinese translation services - based in China.

White sandy beaches, palms ( 棕榈树), swayed (摇摆, 摇动) by the light ocean breeze (微风), crystal clear (极其透明的,非常清澈的) water, and lush (葱翠,繁茂的) tropical blooming (热带开花植 物). Endless summer days bathed in sunshine. Is this your idea of paradise (天堂)? Welcome to Hawaii! Whether you're looking to relax, practice sports or travel and explore, Hawaii has a lot to offer. On these wonderful islands there is an opportunity to spend time with great pleasure for everyone: good waves (波浪, 海浪) all around the year for surfers, constant winds for windsurfers (帆板运动员) and diverse underwaters(水下的) picturesque (如画的) world for divers(潜水员) and beauty of tropics(热带地区) for nature lovers.
Oahu is the third largest and the most developed. Like other islands of Hawaii, Oahu is the tip ( 尖端) of an underwater mountain. The island is roughly shaped like an elephant's head. Oahu is not the largest, but the main island of Hawaii. It is the most populated island and hosts five million visitors a year. Honolulu (檀香山), the capital of Hawaii(夏威夷州的首府), is situated here on Oahu. Honolulu boasts (包含) about 80% of the population of Hawaii. Honolulu plays role of business, commercial and cultural center of Hawaii. Oahu Hawaii tourism is centred almost exclusively around Waikiki Beach (怀基基海滩). Over 90% of Oahu hotels are located here. Waikiki is famous for the best surfing waves on Oahu Island. The majority of the island's attractions are concentrated ( 集中) around this urban area. Hawaii is also famous for the most challenging and scenic golf courses(高尔夫球场) (there are about 36 of them on Oahu Hawaii Island). Stretching into Rainforest Mountains, through the island's central plateau (高原) and along golden beaches, Oahu's courses provide splendid (壮丽的, 辉煌的) scenery and some of the most challenging holes in the nation.
Maui is the second largest island in the Hawaiian Island chain (夏威夷群岛). The nickname of Maui is "The Valley Island" because the island is formed by two parallel(平行的) and now dormant volcanoes (休眠火山) with a valley between them. The western section of Maui Hawaii is situated the world's largest volcano, Haleakala(哈里阿卡拉) (10,029 feet). As the middle island of Hawaii, Maui was the center of Hawaiian royalty (皇室). Through the years, it has also served as a base for Christian missionaries(传教士), a port of call for whaling vessels, and the site of Hawaii's most productive sugar cane (甘蔗) and pineapple(菠萝) plantations( 种植园). Nowadays Maui is the most developed of the Hawaiian Islands. It has everything for perfect vacation: accommodation (膳宿) for every taste, from budget hotels(经济型旅馆) to luxurious (豪华的) resorts (度假胜地), gorgeous (宜人的;爽快的) beaches, nightlife and entertainment.
Enchanting (迷人的,醉人的) beauty of cascading (成瀑布落下) emerald (翠绿色的) mountains, uncrowded sandy beaches and spectacular (引人入胜的, 壮观的) waterfalls --that is Kauai Hawaii. Kauai is so richly green and flourishing that it's nicknamed "The Garden Island". Nearly half the island is a protected conservation area (保留地区), and much of the rest is rural(农村). Kauai is considered to be the Hawaii's oldest island. It was formed by volcanic activity (火山运动) more than 5 million years ago. Kauai's central volcanic peak, Mount Waialeale(威美亚峡谷), is the wettest place on earth. Thanks to moisture-laden winds (潮湿的风) that strike Mount Waialeale, the area surrounding the peak is often deluged (淹, 浸) by upwards of 480 inches of rain per year. The lush natural environment and the breath-taking scenery makes Kauai Hawaii a favorite island with photographers and filmmakers. Over the years, such well-known works as "South Pacific," (电影《南太平洋》) "Raiders of the Lost Ark," (电影《夺宝奇兵》) "Jurassic Park," (电影《侏罗纪公园》) and "Outbreak" (电影《恐怖地带》) have been filmed here. Roughly circular (圆形的) in shape, Kauai is 550 square miles in area and 32 miles in diameter (n. 直径). Though Kauai's climate is tropical (热带的), it actually consists of many distinct (清楚的, 明显的) microclimates (小气候), including sunny dry areas, lush river valleys, temperate (气候温和的) foothills and high mountain rain forests.
Big Island Hawaii 夏威夷大岛 Its official name is the Island of Hawaii, but you rarely hear this. Commonly it is called the Big Island, because it's nearly twice the size of all the other Hawaiian islands combined结合). The Big Island of Hawaii has other unofficial names: some call it the "Orchid Isle" (兰花岛) due to the 100,00 plus species of orchids grown there. Sometime it is named "Volcano Island", because at the heart of the Big Island there are two towering (高耸的) volcanic peaks. Geographically the Big Island of Hawaii is the most diverse island of the archipelago (群岛) with eleven of the 14 known climate zones in the world: from desert lavascapes (沙漠岩石景观) to tropical rain forests (热带雨 林), from beaches to snow-capped mountains. The highest point of the Big Island Hawaii is Mauna Kea (that means "White mountain") at 13,796 ft above sea level and home to the world's largest astronomical observatory (气象台), with telescopes (望远镜) operated by astronomers (天文学家) from eleven countries of the world.
Molokai Hawaii 莫洛凯岛 Peaceful and rural, Molokai is called "the most Hawaiian Island". If you're looking for natural beauty, rainforests and deserted beaches, outdoor adventures and eco (生态、环境的) tourism, travel to Molokai Hawaii is a perfect choice for you. Life here is slow and relaxed. There is so little automobile traffic, that there's not a single traffic light. There are no buildings taller than a coconut tree. Although it is just only 9 miles away from Maui, Molokai is years apart from other major Hawaiian islands in terms of modern development. Visiting Molokai, you feel stepping many years back in time. The island was formed by a series of three volcanoes. According to the experts, first settlements appeared on Molokai about 650 A.D.. Those first settlers most likely originated from the Marquises [(英国等的)侯爵], with later migrations(移民), in double hulled canoes (独木舟), from Tahiti(塔希提岛) and other areas in the South Pacific. Residents here are very friendly and honest.

Niagara Falls 尼亚加拉瀑布

By Freelance Chinese Translator Li – English to Chinese translation services - based in China.
Niagra falls, one of the wonders of the world, right on the border with Canada and some twenty miles north of Buffalo(布法罗,美国纽约州西部 一城市), USA, is a must to see!! At 56 metres (180 ft), the American Falls is slightly higher than its Canadian counterpart. Its crestline (瀑布最高处的宽 度) is 320 metres (1075 ft) . The American Falls look spectacular at night, when it is lit with various combinations of coloured lights. Over the last century the American Falls has undergone a dramatic face lift due to natural forces of erosion (腐蚀, 侵蚀). The natural bedrock ([矿]岩床) is composed of (包括,包含) soft shale (页岩) and limestone ( 石灰石). Over the years the continual flow of the water causes large sections of the bedrock to fall and remain at the base of the cataracts (大瀑布). It is estimated that 75,000 gallons of water flow over the American Falls each second, amounting to only 10% of Niagara's total waterflow. No one has ever dared to conquer the American Falls in a barrel (桶). All daredevil (鲁莽大胆的) activities have always concentrated on the Canadian Horseshoe Falls (加拿大马蹄瀑布) because it has a larger waterflow and fewer rocks at its basins (底部).
