Our Greatest Protector: Our Skin!

Now, the VOA Learning English program Words and Their Stories.

On this program we explore common expressions in American English.

Today we explore the human body. Specifically, we take a tour of our largest organ: the skin.

Skin is not only large; it is important.

One of its jobs is to protect us. It keeps bad things out. But sometimes it fails. Extremely small bugs, called mites, can get under our skin. And when they do, they cause itching and great discomfort.

So, to get under someone's skin means to annoy them or, better still, to bug them. Get it? Mites are small bugs.

Okay, moving on!

That's just one definition of the expression “to get under someone's skin.” It can also mean that someone is very attractive to you. You can't stop thinking about them. You might even be obsessing about them.

Cole Porter used the expression this way in his 1936 love song “I've Got You Under My Skin."

Frank Sinatra singing “I’ve Got You Under My Skin”

I've got you under my skin.
I've got you deep in the heart of me.
So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me.
I've got you under my skin.

 

Let's hear the same expression used different ways in two short examples.

A: Can you stop popping your gum? I need to study and it's really annoying.

B: Sure.

A: And can you stop whistling, please?!

B: Anything you say.

A: Please stop drumming your pencil on the table! Look, you're really getting under my skin today. Can you just ... be somewhere else?

B: Mm-k. (Okay)

 

That was an example of the annoying situation. Now, let's move to obsession!

A: Hey, have you seen Jacob recently?

B: He met this new woman at a party last month. So, no. I haven't seen him.

A: What do you mean?

B: I mean, he's fallen hard for her. He's either with her or at home waiting for her call.

A: Wow, she's really gotten under his skin.

B: That's one way to put it. I just tell him that he's obsessed with her.

 

Now, let's get back to skin as a protector.

Our skin fits tightly on our bodies. It holds in important things while keeping out harmful things. So, we can use a “skin” expression to describe very tight clothing. We can say that the outfit fits like a second skin.

There are many ways to describe people using the word "skin."

If someone is thick-skinned they are not easily hurt emotionally. You can criticize them or be unkind to them and it simply rolls off their back.

Thin-skinned people, however, are easily hurt by criticism, even if it is not too severe. You have to be careful what you say to thin-skinned people so as not to hurt their feelings.

If someone is suddenly very scared, you can say they nearly jumped out of their skin! For example, one day I saw my friend Sierra waiting at a bus stop. She was wearing headphones and did not hear me come up behind her. So, when I touched her shoulder, she nearly jumped out of her skin!

If someone is too thin and looks sickly, you can say they are all skin and bones. It appears they have no meat or muscle on their bodies. For example, let’s imagine that two hikers get lost in the woods. When rescuers find them weeks later, they are all skin and bones.

Now, let's say you meet someone who is very strange and creepy. You get a very bad feeling around them. You can say they make your skin crawl.

But if you meet someone who is very confident, you can say they are comfortable in their own skin. These people have accepted themselves as is – flaws and all!

And if you meet someone who is beautiful on the outside but is not very nice on the inside, you can say, “Well, beauty is only skin deep."

And that's the end of this Words and Their Stories! Let us know what you thought of today’s program. And don’t worry if you have more criticism than praise. We have thick skin and can take it!

I'm Anna Matteo.

 

When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry ...

 

How do you use the word "skin" in your language? Let us know in the comments section. Or practice with the expression you heard on this program!

Road accidents continue higher trend even as revellers defy heat to celebrate Sonkgran

national April 15, 2018 01:00

By The Sunday Nation

EVEN AS police claimed to push stricter law enforcement to suppress crimes during the Songkran Festival, the increase in the number of accidents, injuries and deaths on the road on the third day of this year’s “seven dangerous days” of the Songkran holidays raised doubts whether the preventive measures are working.

The Road Safety Centre (RSC) yesterday reported that after the first three of the seven days, the number of road fatalities, injuries and accidents were all higher than during the same period of last year.

According to the road accident report on April 13 – the third day of the monitoring period – there were a total of 820 accidents, 86 deaths and 852 injured people – with increases in all numbers except the death toll.

When added to the statistics of the previous two days of the campaign, the totals for the first three days were all higher than the same period last year.

RFSC statistics reported that from Wednesday until yesterday, there were 1,846 road accidents that injured 1,934 persons, killed 183 people, while during the same period last year there were 1,741 accidents, 1,778 injured, and 183 deaths.

Meanwhile, police have been monitoring about 300 surveillance TV cameras in Bangkok’s Silom Road area around the clock as part of precautionary measures for tourist safety during Songkran, while also checking revellers for the modesty of their dress and actions.

In addition, in an attempt to avoid violence, police have issued warnings to revellers over alcohol consumption in prohibited areas. 

On the tourism front, the Songkran Festival has attracted millions of Thai and foreign tourists to popular destinations nationwide, generating significant revenue for local economies.

Chuchat on-charern, the Tourism Authority of Thailand chief for the southern province of Phang-nga, said an estimated 155,000 tourists visited the province, with each Thai tourist spending an average of Bt4,000 per day and each foreign tourist spending an average of Bt6,586 per day.

The province’s 11,000 hotel rooms have an occupancy rate of over 80 per cent this year, he said, adding that the tourism revenue during Songkran is estimated to top Bt1.1 billion, up 5 per cent from the previous year. The province is popular among German, Scandinavian and Asian tourists due to its proximity to popular islands.

On the second day of the three days of the long traditional Thai New Year yesterday, Thailand was still soaked in a festive mood, even as the Meteorological Department reported a midday temperature above 32 degrees Celsius in every part of the country. Some provinces in the upper part of Thailand reeled in heat exceeding 40 degrees Celsius.

For the remainder of the holidays, the Weather Forecast Bureau yesterday said every region would face very hot weather. Temperature in the northern, northeastern, central and eastern regions would range from 34 to 40 degrees Celsius, while the average temperature in Bangkok and the South would be slightly cooler, averaging 32 to 38 degrees Celsius.

The highest temperature yesterday was recorded at 40.2 degrees Celsius in Nong Khai, Si Saket, Chaiyaphum and Surin provinces in the Northeast.

People planning to participate in outdoor Songkran water fights were advised to stay cool to prevent heat stroke and avoid long exposure to the midday sun without skin protection, or they could suffer sunburns.

Songkran celebration venues in major cities across the country reported an unexpectedly high turnout as people played in the water to cool off during the hot day.

Wanchai Sakudomchai, director of the Meteorological Department, forecast that today – the final day of the Songkran Festival – an approaching cold front from southern China would affect the weather in the eastern and northeastern regions, with risk of summer storms from today until next Wednesday.

As summer storms often bring intense downpours, thunder, gusty winds and hail, Wanchai urged all people residing in affected regions to be cautious. Local people and farmers have also been told to remain prepared, as the summer storms could damage crops and properties.

In the northern region, large crowds of Chinese tourists were seen celebrating Songkran and joyfully splashing water on each other with colourful water guns. There also were tourists from Western countries and Thais at Chiang Mai’s Tha Pae Gate and along the moat in Chiang Mai’s old town.

Songkran death toll reaches 188, with 1,934 injuries after three days

Around Thailand April 14, 2018 13:55

By The Nation

The accumulated road death toll for the first three days of the so-called seven dangerous Songkran days rose to 188 at the end of Friday, the Road Safety Centre announced on Saturday.

Pol Maj-General Ekkarak Limsangkart, commander of the Special Branch Police Division 3, said the first three days of the road accidents monitoring period from April 11 saw 1,848 accidents, killing 188 people and injuring 1,934 others.

Friday alone saw 820 accidents, killing 88 people and injuring 852 others.

Drunk driving remained the biggest cause of accidents for the third day of the monitoring period, he said.

Chiang Mai was the province with the highest number of accidents, at 65, along with the most injured people, at 70.

Nakhon Ratchasima, Buri Ram, and Phetchabun have the biggest number of deaths, each at 8, Ekkarak said.
