今日の出来事から 2月29日(月) アトランタは進化している!

 昨日のこと、初めてPonce City Marketに行ってきました。まあ、「これアトランタ?」と思いましてね。古い市庁舎をうまく残しながら改装しています。圧巻はそこからトレイルができていて、ピドモント公園やフリーダム公園まで歩いたりバイクで行けるようになっていることです。

 <p>By Dana Leigh Smith&The Editors of Eat This, Not That!</p><p>In terms of sugar, a 12-ounce can of Coke = 16 Hershey Kisses. Think that’s bad? The majority of your favorite coffee drinks are far sweeter.</p><p>What’s more comforting than a warm cup of coffee or <a href="">tea</a>? It’s what you drink first thing in the morning, is how you recharge when in a post-lunch daze and is the perfect drink for non-boozy catch-ups or meetings. It all sounds so innocent.</p><p>But no two beverages have started conflicts quite like tea and coffee; both have caused tons of chaos and bloodshed over the years. Coffee, after all, was put on trial in Mecca and tea was a main driver behind the opium wars. And to this day, they’re still stirring up trouble.</p><p>On a positive note, numerous studies have linked both coffee and tea to increased metabolic rate, smaller waistlines, and weight loss. But like many of the world’s great wonders, somebody looking to make a fast buck will come up with a way to mess everything up by “improving” them. Places like Starbucks and <a href="">McDonald’s</a> serve up high-concept, calorie-laden concoctions that have none of the amazing weight loss qualities that the originals have. In fact, health advocacy group Action on Sugar recently tested 131 drinks at popular chains in the UK (many of which are also popular in America) only to discover that 35 percent of the hot, flavored drinks contained the same amount or more sugar than what you’d find in a can of Coca-Cola (12 oz, 39 grams), one of the most vilified beverages on the planet. It’s a bit ironic that so many people who scoff cola don’t even give a second thought to what’s in their coffee cups.</p><p>So, how can you avoid sipping your way to a wider waistline every time you want to catch a buzz? Answer: By knowing which coffee drinks have been turned into health-busters—and staying far, far away. But we’ve made it extra easy for you by already doing your homework and identifying the worst of the lot.

 実はコーラよりも砂糖が入っているものがあります。確かコーラにはスプーン8杯の砂糖が入っていたと思います。それも砂糖よりも安価で悪質なコーンシロップです。<p><strong>Small, 16 fl oz:</strong> 300 calories, 70 g sugar</p><p><strong>Sugar Equivalent:</strong> 1.8 cans of Coke</p><p>Dunkin’ Donuts offers more than 15,000 ways to customize a coffee, and this drink is among the sugariest. Packing as much of the sweet stuff as 15 Oreos or nearly two cans of Coke, we’re all but forced to give this frozen, creamy beverage our stamp of disapproval. For more ways to stay slim at your favorite coffee house, check out these <a href="">20 Ways to Lose Weight at Any Coffee Shop</a>.</p>Frozen French Vanilla Swirl Coffee Coolatta with Skim Milk<p><strong>Tall, 12 fl oz:</strong> 270 calories, 45 g sugar</p><p><strong>Sugar Equivalent:</strong> 1.2 cans of Coke</p><p>Even if you hold the whipped cream and go with nonfat milk, there is no saving this overly sweet espresso drink. Recently a <a href="">Starbucks</a> spokesperson went on record saying that the company has plans to reduce the sugar in its "indulgent drinks" by 25 percent by the end of 2020. While that’s well and good, in the meantime, we suggest staying far away from this blood sugar-spiking beverage. </p>Starbucks White Chocolate Mocha with Nonfat Milk, No Whip<p><strong>Tall, 12 fl oz:</strong> 280 calories, 48 g sugar</p><p><strong>Sugar Equivalent:</strong> 1.2 cans of Coke</p><p>It’s a little-known fact that Frappuccino means “fattening” in Italian. Totally kidding, but maybe it should. Nearly all of Starbucks’ blended coffee and milk beverages are swimming with globs of fat and more sugar than anyone should ingest in a single day. (Which is 45 grams a day for women and 50 grams for men, according to the USDA’s most recent dietary guidelines.) Do your waistline a favor and cool down with a skinnier iced beverage from the ‘bux. Might we suggest a Tall 2% Iced Caffè Latte or a Tall Nonfat, Unsweetened Iced Coffee with two pumps Caramel Syrup? The former has 9 grams of sugar while the latter carries 10 grams.

このフラプチーノの名前が怪しい。コーラの1.2倍の砂糖が入っています。<p><strong>12 oz:</strong> 340 calories, 42 g sugar</p><p><strong>Sugar Equivalent:</strong> 1.1 cans of Coke</p><p>Made from espresso, steamed milk, chocolate syrup and topped with whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle, this McMocha is far but ab friendly. There are far better ways to start your day with Ronald. Of all the items on the <a href="">Mcdonald’s breakfast</a> menu, we’re most keen on the Egg McMuffin and the Fruit and Maple Oatmeal. Pair either of those with a black coffee and you can’t go wrong.</p>McDonald’s McCafé Mocha
<p><strong>12 oz:</strong> 520 calories, 66 g sugar</p><p><strong>Sugar Equivalent:</strong> 1.7 cans of Coke</p><p>Fun fact: The only type of coffee you’ll find in this beverage is coffee extract, a flavor enhancer made by distilling coffee beans. Translation: This drink is more likely to give you a sugar buzz than a caffeine high. And speaking of supercharging your energy—or in this case not so much—be sure to check out these 35 Things You Didn't Know About Caffeine.</p>McDonald’s McCafé Frappé Chocolate Chip

 J-Castに出ていますが、リーマン後に投機の対象となり、世界的な牛肉争奪戦の裏で進行する、知られざる動き。「中国で始まった"異次元〝爆食〟"」、「牛肉と穀物の世界を変えるマネー」、「ブラジルを襲った大干ばつ」、「気候変動、食糧危機はどう回避できるのか 」など全10章からなるそうです。まあ、肉を作るには大量の水と穀物が必要なのですよ。

 もうわかったでしょう? 日本で教育を受けた人の特徴として、多くの修飾語(形容詞や副詞)を使い、長い英文を書くという傾向があり。卓越した文法力や豊富な語彙を活用しようとするためです。英語を難しくしているので伝わらないのです。1千語以内の簡単な単語を使って日常会話は成り立っています。受験英語で使うような単語は出てこないのです。
