A Páscoa, em inglês (Easter)


No Brasil, por sermos um país de maioria católica, a Semana Santa (The Holy Week) é muito importante culturalmente pois temos o feriado da Sexta-Feira Santa (Holy Friday ou Good Friday).
O termo Semana Santa vem do latim e do grego (Hebdomas Sancta ou Hebdomas Maior, “Semana Maior”, em grego Μεγάλη Εβδομάδα) e é a última semana da Quaresma (Lent). A Semana Santa começa no Domingo de Ramos (Palm Sunday) e termina no Domingo de Páscoa (Easter Sunday) e celebra a última semana de vida terrestre (earthly life) de Jesus antes de sua morte da Sexta-Feira Santa (Good Friday) e sua ressurreição no Domingo de Páscoa.
Nos países de língua inglesa, as crianças pintam os ovos de páscoa (Easter eggs), nem sempre de chocolates, e seus pais os escondem para que elas possam procurá-los no domingo de Páscoa de manhã. Da mesma forma que no Natal, os pais dizem aos filhos que o Coelhinho da Páscoa (Easter Bunny) deixou os ovos de chocolate ou coelhinhos e pintinhos feitos de marshmellos, chamados de Peeps, para que eles os procurassem.
Muitas familias fazem um Sunday roast (assado de domingo) com carneiro e depois comem pães e bolos típicos da Páscoa, como o Simnel cake, que é um bolo de frutas com onze bolas de marzipã (um tipo de pasta de avelã), que representam os onze apóstolos.
Independente de religões ou crenças, a Páscoa vem nos lembrar de como nossa fé (faith) em Deus, ou algum outro Espírito Superior, nos ajuda a conquistar metas e passar obstáculos e mais que tudo, termos fé e acreditarmos em nós mesmos.

Saint Patrick's Day, March 17, is an annual celebration of the patron saint of Ireland. It is a national holiday in Ireland, and millions of Irish people all over the world where there are Irish communities celebrate. Celebrations are based on all things Irish and the colour green. City authorities in Chicago even dye the city’s river green for this day. Many people wear green clothes, eat Irish food and drink the Irish drink Guinness, which many bars also try and dye green. There are also traditional St Patrick’s Day parades. The one in Dublin is spread over five days and attracts half a million people. The New York parade is the largest, with two million spectators. Many people with no Irish connections celebrate and declare themselves Irish for a day.
Saint Patrick was a Christian missionary. Some scholars say he was born in England, while others believe he was Italian. Most agree he lived in the fifth century. When he was sixteen, he was captured and taken as a slave to Ireland. He lived as a slave for six years before escaping. He joined the church to train as a priest and became a missionary in the north and west of Ireland. Legend has it that Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland. There are many other legends about Patrick that have cemented him as a key part of Irish culture. March 17 is believed to be the date of his death. Unlike other saints, Patrick was never canonized by a Pope, although most Christian churches list him as a “Saint in Heaven”.

Brazil protesters call for President Rousseff to resign


Huge crowds have taken to the streets across Brazil calling for President Dilma Rousseff to resign.
Opponents blame Ms Rousseff for a severe recession and a corruption scandal also engulfing her predecessor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
She has said she has no intention of resigning but her opponents hope a large turnout on the streets will lead to her impeachment.
She faces charges over masking the budget deficit, which she denies.

'Dilma out'

Crowds in Sao Paulo at the peak of the march reached 1.4 million, the city's state security office said.
Smaller marches took place in many cities across the coutnry.
The demonstrations were peaceful, with tens of thousands wearing the national colours of yellow and green and holding banners that read "Dilma out" and "Stop with corruption".
"I support her impeachment and new elections because the presidential vote in 2014 was financed with dirty money from corruption," said protester Alexandre Cortes, a 39-year-old engineer in Sao Paulo.
Correspondents have described the crisis as the worst in Brazil for many years.
The BBC's Wyre Davies says Ms Rousseff, leader of the governing Workers' Party has come under increasing pressure in recent months over a huge corruption investigation, centred on the state-controlled oil company Petrobras.

Image captionMs Rousseff said the opposition had sparked a crisis which was hurting the economy
So far, the Petrobras inquiry has implicated some of the wealthiest people in Brazil and politicians from all parties.
Prosecutors say contractors skimmed billions of dollars from the company to illegally finance politicians including those from the Workers' Party and its allies - allegations the party denies.
Ms Rousseff was head of the Petrobras board at the time of many of the infractions and opponents have accused her of involvement.
She has denied any knowledge of the corruption scheme and is not being investigated.
The demonstrators also directed their anger towards Ms Rousseff's political mentor and presidential predecessor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
In Sao Paulo, large inflatable dolls of President Rousseff wearing a sash saying "impeachment" and Lula in prison clothes were paraded through the streets.

Dilma Rousseff under pressure - Daniel Gallas, BBC News, Brazil

The size of Sunday's protests matters, because it could help define the shape of things to come for President Dilma Rousseff.
Her future in office depends on her support from Congress, where she is facing an impeachment process.
If she loses backing from MPs and Senators, she could be out of her job before her term ends, on January 1st 2019.
Support in Congress is very volatile - some of the same politicians and parties who are in the ruling coalition today were previously in governments lead by the opposition.
Sunday's protests could serve as a good excuse for some of those parties to turn against her at a moment she is very unpopular.

Pressure on Lula

Last week Sao Paulo State prosecutors asked a judge to place Lula in "preventive custody" after filing charges accusing him of failing to declare ownership of a luxury sea-front penthouse in the seaside resort of Guaruja.
Lula, 70, denies any wrongdoing and says the claims are politically motivated. He says he never owned the flat.

Image captionLula says the accusations against him are politically motivated
Protesters also expressed frustration that Brazil - a rising economic star on the world stage only a few years ago had wasted a historic opportunity with many holding the PT government responsible.
Brazil recently lost its investment-grade status. President Rousseff has accused the opposition of paralysing the Congress with bickering making it impossible to pass the financial measures needed to jump-start the economy.

Dia dos Namorados


O dia dos namorados nos Estados Unidos é no dia 14 de fevereiro. Que tal vocês traduzirem este texto pra treinar um pouco do seu inglês e aprender um pouco mais sobre como esta data é comemorada lá!
Introduction:
Valentine’s Day or Saint Valentine’s Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. In the English-speaking countries, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine’s cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The holiday is named after two among the numerous Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. The day is most closely associated with the mutual exchange of love notes in the form of ‘valentines’.” Wikipedia

Sr Goodman.
What makes you think you’re qualified for this job?
O que o faz pensar que é qualificado para este emprego?
Stop punching me!

Legal!
O que você aprendeu com este comercial?
“stop punching me” – veja que depois de ‘stop’ foi usado um verbo+ing (gerúndio). Neste caso, o rapaz estava pedindo para que o entrevistador parasse de bater nele.  Se as frase fosse ‘stop to punch me’, ele estaria dizendo ‘pare e bata em mim’. Com o ‘ing’ ficou claro que o verbo ‘stop’ se referia ao ‘punching’.
‘Got it?’ – conseguiu/pegou alguma coisa. Neste caso, ‘it’ se refere ao emprego
“Alright” – tem o sentido de ‘tudo bem’, ‘legal’, ‘ok'; nesta frase, até pela forma feliz com que os amigos a dizem, acho que a melhor forma de tradução seria ‘legal!’
