  • It begins in the United Kingdom, where health officials say Omicron, a newly-discovered variant or version of COVID-19 is spreading rapidly throughout the country.

    根據英國衛生官員表示,爆發於英國的新冠肺炎(COVID-19)全新變異株 Omicron 正快速地蔓延至英國全國。

  • The British government estimates that Omicron accounts for 20% of all coronavirus cases in the UK, that amounted to just over 4,700 Omicron cases Monday.

  • 10 people had been hospitalized with the new variant, despite most of them being fully vaccinated; one person with it has died.

    10 人因感染這個新變異株而入院,儘管他們當中大多數的人已經完整接種疫苗,他們當中,出現了一個 Omicron 變異株死亡病例。

  • There's a lot that's still unknown about this mutation of COVID.

    目前,我們對於這個新冠肺炎的新變異株還有許多的未知。

  • But according to the World Health Organization, early findings suggest that existing vaccines may be less effective in preventing people from getting and spreading Omicron.

    但據世界衛生組織稱,早期的研究結果表明,現有的疫苗也許對抵禦人類感染 Omicron 和抑制 Omicron 變異株的疫情沒有什麼顯著效果。

  • Early data also suggests it's less severe than previous COVID variants, that most people with Omicron have relatively mild symptoms or none at all.

    早期的數據還表明,Omicron 變異株的癥狀沒有之前的 COVID 變異株那麼嚴重,大多數的 Omicron 患者的症狀相對較輕或根本沒有。

  • Still, the British government is asking more people to work from home.

  • Cases have been on the rise in the American Northeast and Midwest over the past couple weeks.

    在過去幾週,美國東北部和中西部的新冠病例持續上升。

  • We don't know if that's because of the Omicron variant, though; this could be the continued spread of previously-identified versions like Delta.

    我們不知道病例增加的原因是否與 Omicron 變異株有關係,還是與較早前被發現的 Delta 變異株有關。

  • Protesters have been speaking out against various mandates nationwide, and dozens of court cases related to them have been filed.

    全國各地實施的防疫指令引起了許多人的抗議,法庭因此接獲數十宗的訴訟審理要求。

    是蘇聯政府的影響力?污染?石油輸出國組織還是通膨?

  • With the inflation rated higher than 11%, President Ford called it a public enemy.

    答案是通膨,因為當時美國的通膨率衝破 11%,因此被時任美國總統福特宣告為頭號公敵。

  • There are a lot of mixed signals concerning the US economy.

    我們可以從多個角度來解讀美國經濟。

  • In its most recent employment report, the Labor Department said 210,000 jobs were created in November, that's far short of the 573,000 economists had expected⏤a bad sign there.

    勞工部在最新發布的就業報告中說,美國在 11 月創造了 21 萬個工作機會,這遠低於經濟學家預期的 57.3 萬,這對美國來說不是個好跡象。

  • On the other hand, the unemployment rate, the percentage of American workers who don't have a job, that dropped from 4.6% in October to 4.2% in November⏤a good sign there.

    另一方面,失業率,也就是美國沒有工作的人的百分比,從 10 月份的 4.6% 下降到 11 月份的 4.2%,這是個好現象。

  • Wages have increased; the government says this November, the average amount of money Americans made per hour was 4.8% higher than it was a year ago, but prices have increased, too.

    勞工的薪資上漲,政府說,今年 11 月,國人每小時領的薪水比去年同期高 4.8%。但在美國人薪水變高的同時,物價也變貴了。

    嗨,你肚子餓嗎?

  • In the St. Cyr household...

    這是聖西爾的一戶人家...

  • Cricket he show cow and Trigger the rescue horse are top priorities.

    沒有人比乳牛 Cricket 和馬 Trigger 來得重要,牠們多年前被主人救下後就和主人一起生活至今。

  • So, your animals come first, like, they eat before I eat.

    我們家的動物排第一位,牠們吃飽,我再吃。

  • And these gentle giants eat a lot.

    這些溫馴的大塊頭胃口很大。

  • The price of their food has gone up, and with twice-daily feedings, they run through nearly two 50-pound bags a week.

    牠們的飼料價格上漲,每天吃兩餐,一週大約吃下 100 磅的飼料。

  • It was about, like, $16 a bag, and right now, it's atit depends on where you go, where we're getting it, it's about, like, 22.

    過去牠們的飼料一包要價 16 美元,現在的價格不定,視你從哪些通路取得,目前的價格是 22 美元。

  • It's just one of the price pinches for this family in rural Michigan.

    這戶來自密西根農村的人家,面對的可不只有飼料價格上漲。

  • Spending power for rural Americans has dropped by 5.2%, compared to 3.5% for urban Americans from pre-pandemic.

    疫情後,美國農村居民的消費力下降幅度為 5.2%,比城市居民的 3.5% 消費力還嚴重。

  • And rural Americans typically spend more on the very items that have seen the biggest price increases: food, energy, and cars.

    在這一波通膨潮中,首當其衝的是住在農村的美國人,因為他們對漲幅最大的生活必需品,如糧食、電力和汽車的需求比較高。

  • What are the biggest challenges you face when it comes to inflation?

    當通膨發生時,你面臨的最大挑戰是什麼?

  • I think it's just not having the options to offset those costs.

    最大的挑戰是,我們對通膨束手無策。

    今年,這對夫婦在自家車庫創辦了一家木製家具和裝修公司——Palomino and Co.。

    但後來木材的成本急劇上升,品質好的木材變得稀少。

  • So, to fill orders, they turned to their own barn for wood.

    為了應付訂單,他們決定把穀倉拆了,把拆除下來的木用作生產原料。

  • All of this used to be stalls, this whole, like, the aisle way, they're all stalls.

  • The price of wood has come back down, but the cost to ship their orders is up.

    雖然木材的價格已經回落,但他們的運輸成本卻變高了。

  • With being out a little farther out in the country, obviously, shipping costs, they increase because the farther out they have to drive.

    由於住的地方偏遠,要把商品運送去生活範圍外的地方就必須開車代步,造就他們面對更高的運輸成本。

  • I think we've been hit with so much it's like, you know, first inflation, and then gas prices, and then shipping.

    我們真的屋漏偏逢連夜雨,先是通貨膨脹,再來是汽油價格,之後是運輸成本。

  • But as prices have risen, so have wages, up 4.8% since last November.

    不幸中的大幸是,在物價上升的同時,勞工的薪水也跟著上漲,自去年 11 月以來,勞工的工資上漲了 4.8%。

    目前 Dylan 還從事著一份全職工作,以支持他自創的事業。

  • - So you feel like it's risen a little bit together; enough to offset? - Yes.

    - 所以你覺得薪資上升,有幫你抵消因通膨而增加的生活成本嗎?- 有的。

  • It's definitely helped, um, probably not enough to keep up with inflation, but it's... it's definitely helped, though.

    確實有抵消作用,嗯,也許幫不了多少,但不無小補。

  • I mean, you always have that in the back of your mind.

    我的意思是,你的腦中總是有這個想法。

  • The couple says there is a positive to living in rural America during a time of inflation.

    這對夫婦說,雖然通膨讓農村人民的生活變得更艱難,但過程中還是有一些振奮人心的溫馨時刻。

    那就是如果社區裡面有一戶人家陷入經濟困難,整個社區的鄰里都會團結起來雪中送炭,幫面臨困難的家庭度過困難時刻。
