BBC 6 Minute English | COMPULSORY VOTING | English CC | Daily Listening

source: Daily Listening    2016年9月16日
To vote or not to vote – is it your choice?
For those who are able to vote, should we be made to do it? Listen to Rob and Finn discussing why we should all exercise our right to vote and especially by young people – whilst teaching some related vocabulary.

0:06 Today we're talking about voting.
0:07 Now I'm sure it's something you've done Neil?
0:09 Of course – and earlier this year we had a general election in the UK where I voted.
0:17 And I'd feel guilty if I didn't exercise my right to vote.
0:21 Now a right in this case means somebody's legal claim to vote.
0:27 In a general election we vote for a government that runs the whole country, but we also have
0:31 local and European elections too sometimes.
0:34 Yes but voting in the UK is optional – so you don't have to do it, whereas in some countries
0:41 voting is compulsory - and compulsory means something that you have to do.
0:46 So if you were in Australia, where the government passed a law that made voting compulsory,
0:52 you would have had to pay a fine of $20 for not voting.
0:55 And that's because the Australian government believes that voting is a duty and not just
1:01 a right.
1:02 Duty means something you have a responsibility to do.
1:06 And it's your duty Rob to ask me today's quiz question!
1:09 Yes, sir!
1:10 So can you tell me, what is a constituency?
1:14 Is it … a) the people who live in and vote in a particular
1:18 area?
1:19 b) the politicians who make and change the laws of a country?
1:23 or c) a town or district that has its own government?
1:27 Well I'm no expert on politics… but I'm going to go for c) that's a town or district
1:33 that has its own government.
1:34 OK.
1:35 Well, we'll find out later on in the show whether you're right or wrong.
1:39 Now it's time to hear what a truly young person has to say about compulsory voting.
1:43 Oh right, unlike me you mean?
1:46 Well, here's Michael Yip, who is a student at Warwick University and therefore much younger
1:52 than me.
1:53 A lot of the people that I speak to just say 'I don’t care' or 'I don't really know what's
1:59 going on' and in this way, another reason why I'm quite cautious about this is because
2:04 it could sort of engender this sort of slapdash attitude towards politics where you know it’s
2:09 sort of seen as, you know, being conscripted for national service … you just want to
2:14 get it over and done with.
2:17 So Michael says he is cautious about the idea of introducing compulsory voting.
2:22 So why is that, Neil?
2:23 He thinks forcing young people to vote will engender – or give rise to – a slapdash
2:29 attitude.
2:31 Now what does slapdash mean, Rob?
2:33 It's a good word, isn't it?
2:34 It means doing something quickly and carelessly.
2:37 Oh you've never do that, would you?
2:40 Now, Michael compares compulsory voting to national service.
2:44 National service is compulsory government service that usually means military service
2:50 and is also known as conscription.
2:52 So when it's something you haven't chosen to do, or which you actively don't want to
2:57 do – it's a case of getting it over and done with.
3:00 And that means finishing something difficult or unpleasant as quickly as possible.
3:06 Young people might just pick a political party out of a hat – which means to choose randomly
3:11 – rather than making an informed choice.
3:14 So some people think that politicians need to improve political education.
3:20 Now let's listen to broadcaster and writer Rick Edwards talking about this.
3:25 If you said to politicians, 'Right, 3.3 million first-time voters are definitely going to
3:30 vote', then they will have to speak to them and they will have to make an effort to go
3:34 to where they are and I think that's the change it would create.
3:38 So compulsory voting would mean a responsibility for the politicians too.
3:43 That's right.
3:44 They need to engage and educate young people.
3:47 Otherwise reluctant voters may deliberately spoil – or waste – their votes.
3:53 The government could also include a 'none of the above' option on the ballot paper.
3:57 Can you explain a bit more about that Rob?
3:59 Well, it means you tick this option if you don't want to vote for any of the listed political
4:04 parties.
4:05 An interesting idea.
4:07 Well my option for now is to get the answer to the quiz question.
4:10 OK, well, I asked: What is a constituency?
4:15 Is it … a) the people who live in and vote in a particular area?
4:19 b) the politicians who make and change the laws of a country?
4:22 Or c) a town or district that has its own government?
4:26 I said c) a town or district that has its own government.
4:30 Well, you ticked the wrong box, Neil!
4:33 The answer is a) the people who live in and vote in a particular area.
4:38 Now, did you know the UK is currently divided into 650 areas called parliamentary constituencies,
4:46 each of which is represented by one MP in the House of Commons?
4:51 And each constituency can have a different area.
4:53 The largest is Ross, Skye and Lochaber in Scotland measuring approximately 12,000 square
5:00 kilometres.
5:01 The smallest constituency is Islington North in London measuring a little over seven square
5:06 kilometres.
5:08 Now, can we hear today's words again please, Neil?
5:11 OK.
5:12 We heard: right
5:17 general election compulsory
5:23 duty engender
5:28 slapdash national service
5:34 conscription over and done with
5:39 pick (a political party) out of a hat spoil
5:45 Splendid!

Difference between "under", "below", "beneath", and "underneath"

source: Learn English with Let's Talk      2014年5月7日
Take the test -
These words are all similar in meaning, but figuring out the differences between them can be a little tricky. First, it's helpful to know how common each word is:
1. "Under" is the most popular.
2. "Below" is used about 1/4 as often as "under"
3. "Beneath" is used 1/2 as often as "below"
4. "Underneath" is used less than 1/2 as often as "beneath"
So if you're struggling to choose the correct word, "under" is probably the safest choice.

# Under
--Compared to "below", "under" is more often used to talk about 3-dimensional objects. For example, you'd talk about something being under a table, under a book, etc.
--"Under" is also good for talking about layers of something:
I have on a t-shirt under my jacket.
--You can use "under" for numbers:
I did it in under 7 hours.
We were able to raise just under fifteen thousand dollars.
--"Under" also shows up in expressions like:
under stress
under pressure
under someone's control
under someone's influence
under consideration
under construction
under a spell

--Compared to "under", you use "below" more often to talk about the level of something on a flat plane. For example, if you're describing two photos that hang on a wall, you can say that one of them is "below" the other.
--Use "below" to talk about the level of something, like a temperature:
It's supposed to drop below freezing tonight.
--In writing, you can use "below" to talk about something later on:
Please read the instructions below before you begin.
--The opposite of "below" is "above".

# Beneath
--"Beneath" is more formal than "under":
In the unlikely event of an emergency water landing, you may find a flotation device beneath your seat cushion.
--It can also suggest being covered by something:
beneath the blankets
beneath the surface of the water
--When you're talking about someone's actions or decisions, you use "beneath" to talk about the true emotions that a person is hiding:
Beneath it all, he still loves her.
--When you're talking about human relationships, being "beneath" someone is very negative. Things or people that are "beneath" you are disgusting. They're too low for someone with your social position:
She acts like some kind of princess, like we're all beneath her.

# Underneath
--"Underneath" has a kind of casual and expressive feeling. You can choose "underneath" instead of "under" to explain the location of something with a little more emphasis.
A: You found it! Where was it?
B: It was underneath the sofa.
--Think of "underneath" as a more emotional, exciting version of "under".
