What Is Going on? What’s up? How Is it Going?

This week we answer a question from Maggie. She writes:

Question:

Cou sewer:

Dear Maggie,

This is a good question because these are sayings we use all the time. They can all be used when greeting someone, usually someone you know.

Take this example: You run into a friend you have not seen for a while at the store.

“Hi, Dave!” you say. “Good to see you again. What’s going on?”

Dave may say: “Maggie! I have been so busy at work. All is well. What’s up with you?”

Dave wants to know what Maggie has been doing recently. This is a wide open, general question. It is another way of saying ‘What’s New?’

The expression “What’s going on” can also be used if you are angry, and accuse someone of doing something wrong, as in this example:

“What’s going on here? Did I say you can use my motorbike?”

Now, when it comes to “How is it going?,” you can use these words as part of a greeting when you see a friend. It can be a general question or more direct about something. Here is an example:

You see your friend Mary at the bus stop. You know her mother was sick and in the hospital.

“Hi, Mary. I have been thinking about you. How is it going? How is your Mom doing?”

Here is another example where it can be used at work:

“James, how is it going with your project? Will you have it done on time?”

And that’s Ask A Teacher!

I’m Anne Ball.

Here is a famous song that uses the expression "What's going on?"

Transcript

Note: This is not a word for word transcript

Catherine
Hello and welcome to 6 Minute English, I'm Catherine. 

Neil
And I'm Neil. 

Catherine
Now, Neil, you're a dad, aren't you? 

Neil
I am a dad. How did you know? Is it the grey hair in my beard? Is it the wrinkles around the eyes? 

Catherine
I thought that was just your age. 

Neil
Well, yes, maybe.In today's programme we're going to be talking about fathers and how being a father has changed over the years. But before we hear more about this topic, our question for the day. According to recent research in the UK, what percentage of men are present when their children are born? Is it…
a)   55%
b)   75%
c)   95%
What do you think? 

Catherine
I think a lot of men these days like to see their children born. It's not culturally inappropriate so I'm going to go for 95%. 

Neil
Well, we'll find out if you're right at the end of the programme. Now, Dr Anna Machin is an evolutionary anthropologist. She studies, among other things, how human behaviour has changed and is changing. She's written a book called The Life of Dad. She's been studying new fathers and spoke about her research on the BBC's Woman's Hour programme. She asked why men want to become fathers. She starts by saying that there are lots of reasons but how many does she mention in her answer? 

Dr Anna Machin
There's lots of different reasons why men want to be fathers ... for some of them it's just a stage in life they've reached. They've got the house, they've got the job, now it's time to have a family. Sometimes they admit that actually they're not that keen, but their partner wants a baby, so they're kinda going along with it. And a reasonable number actually say they do it because they want to undo what their father did to them, so rewrite history in relation to fathers and the experience of fathering, to be a better father than their father was. 

Neil
How many reasons does she mention? 

Catherine
She mentioned three reasons. The first was that it was that time in life – the guys had a home and a job and having children was the thing to do next. 

Neil
Another reason was that it was what their partners wanted, even if they weren't that keen themselves. If you're not keen on something it means you are 'not enthusiastic about it', it's not really something you want to do, but because it's what their partner wants they agree to it, or as Dr Machin said, they're going along with it. 

Catherine
Yes, going along with something, is a phrase that means 'agreeing to do' something even though you don't really want to do it. It's interesting that Dr Machin said that some men admit to this. To admit to something is to 'say or agree that something is true even if you're perhaps ashamed of it or you don't want it to be true'. 

Neil
There was one more reason she mentioned and that was that some men become parents because they want to be a better father than their own father had been. Let’s listen again. 

Dr Anna Machin
There's lots of different reasons why men want to be fathers ... for some of them it's just a stage in life they've reached. They've got the house, they've got the job, now it's time to have a family. Sometimes they admit that actually they're not that keen, but their partner wants a baby, so they're kinda going along with it. And a reasonable number actually say they do it because they want to undo what their father did to them, so rewrite history in relation to fathers and the experience of fathering, to be a better father than their father was. 

Neil
So what is it about some father's own dads that they didn't like? Here's Dr Machin again. 

Dr Anna Machin
Well, in some cases, you know, the father would be neglectful, some fathers were absent and others they just felt they were a very, I suppose, we'd say a 1950s father so distant, disciplinarian not actually involved in their children's daily life and certainly not involved in their care. So today's generation fathers, even in the 10 years that I've been studying dads we've seen a massive evolution in how hands-on fathers are. 

Neil
She talks there about some negative characteristics associated with dads in the past. She suggests that some fathers didn't have a very close relationship with their sons, they were absent which means they weren't at home a lot and 'didn't spend time' with their children. 

Catherine
Yes, and some fathers were seen as a disciplinarian. That describes someone whose main communication with their children was to give them strict rules and tell them off or punish them if they did something wrong. 

Neil
These days, according to Dr Machin, fathers are much more hands-on. This phrase means they are 'much more involved' with their children and share bringing up their children with their partners. 

Catherine
And talking of sharing, Neil, come on – it's time to know the answer to today's question. 

Neil
Yes, indeed. According to recent research in the UK, what is the percentage of fathers who are there when their children are born? Was it 55%, 75% or 95%? 

Catherine
And I said a very optimistic 95%. 

Neil
Being optimistic is good obviously because you are correct. 

Catherine
That's fantastic! 

Neil
And now, for something else fantastic, our review of today's vocabulary… 

Catherine
We started off with admit to for when you say something is true, even if it might make you look a little bit bad. And before we go on I have to admit, Neil, that it was me who ate your biscuit. 

Neil
Which one? 

Catherine
The one that you left on the desk. 

Neil
That's all right. I wasn't really keen on it anyway. It had been on the floor. 

Catherine
What? Yuck! 

Neil
Yeah, well, it serves you right! And to be keen on something is our next phrase, meaning 'being very interested in and enthusiastic about' something. 

Catherine
Then we had to go along with something. This is when you agree to do something even if you are not keen on it. 

Neil
An absent father is one who is not at home to spend time with his children. 

Catherine
And some fathers are disciplinarians. They 'have strict rules and they give out punishments' but these days more fathers are hands-on which means they are 'very much involved' in looking after and bringing up their children. 

Neil
Well, that's all we have time for today. Join us again next time and remember you can find us on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and of course our website bbclearningenglish.com. See you soon. Goodbye! 

Catherine
Bye!

Five MPs claim land ownership based on flimsy proof

If it’s true that Ratchaburi MP Pareena Kraikup of the Phalang Pracharath Party cannot verify legal ownership a substantial amount of land in her province, she appears to be far from alone among elected politicians.

Ruangkrai suggested that Pareena may be trespassing on national forestland.

The matter has fuelled public debate over which state agencies should be determining the legitimacy of such land claims.

A 1998 Cabinet resolution allows forest dwellers to remain if they can prove they lived there prior to the area being designated a protected zone and that their continued presence poses no threat to the ecosystem.

Por Bor Tor 5 is essentially a receipt given to anyone who pays tax on land at a local administration office, but it has been widely used as proof of residency and ownership, especially in forestlands, where the facts are difficult to verify.

The NCAA last May released the lists of personal assets declared, as legally required, by victors in the March election who had just been sworn in as MPs. The lists showed five MPs registering land ownership based on the problematic Por Bor Tor 5.

Pareena reported 76 parcels of land in Ratchaburi with an estimated valued of Bt20.068 million, of which Por Bor Tor 5 were used as proof of ownership for 57 plots in Jombeung district, a combined area of 1,700 rai. She did not specify dates of acquisition.

NCAA officials will examine the properties on November 29 looking for possible discrepancies in her claims.

Pareena reported Bt169.66 million in assets and Bt29.73 million in debt.

Her fellow Phalang Pracharath MP Pol Col Waipoj Arpornrat reported 13 properties, one of which – in Kamphaeng Phet’s Pangsilathong district, acquired in 2001 – carried Por Bor Tor 5 as proof of ownership. He gave its value as Bt100,000 while reporting, with his spouse, Bt19.52 million in assets and Bt7.42 million in debt.

Bhumjaithai Party MP Saritpong Kiewkong listed 24 parcels in Krabi together valued at Bt101.7 million, with ownership of two – 100 rai and Bt8.2 million each – based on Por Bor Tor 5.

Saritpong and his spouse reported Bt164.75 million in assets and Bt1.08 million in debt.

Bangkok MP Chotipipat Techasoponmanee of the Future Forward Party based his claim to one of three properties on Por Bor Tor 5. Acquired in 1998, it’s in Chaiyaphum province and covers more than 10 rai with an estimated value of Bt600,000.

Chotipipat reported Bt22.53 million in assets and Bt7.2 million in debt.

Chonburi MP Sarawut Nuengchamnong, also of Phalang Pracharath, has two properties in Chanthaburi and Rayong backed by Por Bor Tor 5. Both were acquired in 2002 and were valued at Bt40 million and Bt30 million, respectively.

Sarawut and his spouse reported assets of Bt323.34 million and debts totalling Bt573,503.

THAI-CANADIAN FAN FAVORITE WINS MISS UNIVERSE THAILAND 2019

Paweensuda “Fahsai” Drouin is crowned Miss Universe Thailand 2013 on June 29, 2019.Paweensuda “Fahsai” Drouin is crowned Miss Universe Thailand 2013 on June 29, 2019.

BANGKOK — Miss Universe Thailand 2019 says that her heart is Thai, despite her Western-looking face.

Jennifer Paweensuda “Fahsai” Drouin, 25, was crowned Miss Universe Thailand 2019 on Saturday night over 56 other contestants – fulfilling the half-Canadian beauty’s goal after at least six years on the pageant circuit.

“I’ve been in so many pageants, but my dream has always been Miss Universe Thailand,” Paweensuda said in an interview with Khaosod.

When asked about potential backlash from winning the coveted crown with a Western-looking face, Fahsai said she’s Thai on the inside.

“Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but I know I’m Thai…What makes us Thai people is that we are open and we accept different people from different backgrounds,” she said. “I speak Thai. My heart is Thai. I know that I can be Thailand’s representative on the world stage and make everyone proud.”

Fahsai took out the crown after the three finalists were asked, “What is your opinion on a woman who stays married for her child or for duty, even though she doesn’t love her husband anymore?” She answered that the mother would be sacrificing her own happiness for the child.

“To be honest, when I was a kid, I thought that my parents were together because of me. Because when I looked at other couples – when I looked at my friends’ parents – they looked like they were intimate. But I believe for a woman to stay together with a guy, even though she doesn’t love him, just so the child can have a full family – you have to appreciate the sacrifice that the mother makes so the child can live in a very happy family and can grow to be the best that they can be by being loved and cherished by a full family.”

Fahsai will represent the country later this year at the Miss Universe 2019 finals in South Korea.

Fahsai is a pageant veteran, having competed in contests since 2013. She was the second runner up in Miss Universe Thailand 2017, and was crowned Miss Earth Thailand 2017.

Fahsai was born in Montreal to a Thai mother and a Canadian father. She graduated from the University of Calgary in kinesiology before moving to Thailand to model. She is fluent in both English and Thai.

First runner-up went to half-American Miriam Sornprommas and second runner up to Roi Et native Thanatchaporn “Bella” Boonsaeng. Bella attempted to answer a question about her family, but ran out of time. Miriam had to have the Thai questions translated into English and mostly responded in English, in contrast to most other contestants.

Kansuda “Mimi” Chanakiri, the only half-Burmese contestant, landed in the top 20.
