colon cancer; 結腸がん
がんは一般的にStage 0(または1)から、Stage4まであります。Stage4では、末期がんと言ってもいいでしょう。

And then just a few weeks ago we found out that my little brother Daniel has stage 4 colon cancer.

chemo; 化学療法

After the shock and the tears, my family is preparing to fight by his side as he gets ready to start chemo.

Hurricane Matthew Nears the U.S. Southeast; China Poses a Potential Challenge for the Next U.S. President; Colorado Facility Converts Food Waste Into Energy

140 miles per hour ;約225km/h 

catastrophic ; (adj) 壊滅的な、悲惨な 

Matthew`s sustained wind speeds were 140 miles per hour last night, the system capable of catastrophic damage. 

come ashore ; やってくる、上陸する
「台風が上陸する」 と言いたいときは、Typhoon expected to come ashore this morning. などと”come ashore" を使いましょう。

Matthew was headed toward Florida and expected to come ashore early Friday morning. But forecasters couldn`t say for sure.

5' 7'' ; 5 feet 7 inches ; 170cm
5'9'' が約175cmです。自分の身長だけでもフィートで言えるようにしておきましょう。こちらが換算表です。 

 Look at this, I`m 5`7", OK? I don`t even, I`m not even as tall as the category two surge estimate. This could be 11 to 15 feet of the surge, and you can see that these buildings aren`t build that much higher than this post.

はじめは、World War Ⅱの際に使われていた、アルファベット表記Aは Able, BはBaker, CはCharlie,DはDog, EはEasy.. といったような名前が使われていました。これをエイブルベイカーといいます。現在は、航空会社と旅行代理店での電話のやり取りでつかわれています。名前が間違えないようにということです。ABCさんの場合は、”Able Baker Charlie”といったような感じで伝えられます。ただ、問題もありました。A-Zまでなので、毎年同じような名前になってしまうのです。

And they actually started by using the World War II alphabet, Able, Baker, Charlie, Dog, Easy. But this created confusion as well, because every year, the storm names were the same. 


It wasn`t until 1979 that we started alternating male and female names. We recycle that list every six years. In the Atlantic Basin, we use English, Spanish and French names. 


A storm name will be retired if it is too costly or deadly and it would be inappropriate to use it in future years. In fact, since 1950, there had been nearly 80 storm names retired. 


And what happens if we go through all of the storm names? Well, it happened in 2005. We ended up going to the Greek alphabet.

anaerobic digestion;【直訳】酸素を使用せずに処理する処理法

REPORTER: The process Heartland uses is called anaerobic digestion, and as the name implies, it works just like our human digestive systems, by breaking down food into energy, in this case, electricity.

methane ; (/meθein/) メタン

liquid soil ; 液状の土、ドロ
amedment ;(/amendment./) (n) 修正、小さな変更・向上
solid soil ; 固形の土、 固まった土
peat moss ; ミズゴケ・コケの一種 
moss はコケを表します。「モスバーガーはコケバーガーだ!」で覚えましょう。モスバーガーの色も緑ですし。ちなみにモスバーガーは実際MOSだそうで、全く違う意味です。Mountain Ocean Sunだそう。

Remember the smell from before? It`s methane and it`s a great source of renewable energy.

YOST: We create three things: gas, liquid soil amendment, and solid soil amendment of peat moss like material.
