 Mom, distancing me, please.

 

 

       

According to The Covid- 19 is spreading and caused people to fall into infection not less. Because we can't do the 'social distancing' which often inform now. But however, the measurement of curfew to limited people does not leave

their locates without needing available.

Usually, the word ' social distancing' is the only warning to the public, but it can change to be the punishment later if people not accept it.

Many thanks to Google Translate and together with G Grammarly.

Transcript 

Note: This is not a word for word transcript    

Rob
Hello. This is 6 Minute English. I'm Rob.

Sam
And I'm Sam.

Rob
In this programme, we’re talking about biscuits.

Sam
Really? That’s not what I was told… oh hold on, you’re lying.

Rob
Yes, you’re right, Sam. I am lying simply to demonstrate our topic – lying and how to detect it. You detected my lie very easily, Sam!

Sam
I could tell by the smirk on your face that you were telling a fib – that’s the word for a small, inoffensive lie.

Rob
To be honest, talking about lie detecting will be much more interesting than biscuits. But first, let’s start with a question for you to answer. A competition is held in Cumbria in the UK every year to find and award the title of "The Biggest Liar in the World". But which type of people are not allowed to take part?

a)    Farmers

b)    Lawyers

c)    Estate agents

What do you think, Sam?

Sam
I’d be lying if I said I knew – but based on personal experience I’d say estate agents – they’d find it too easy!

Rob
Ha – well that’s your opinion but I’ll let you know if you’re right at the end of the programme. So, lying is something I’m sure a lot of us do – sometimes to avoid trouble, sometimes to cheat people, or sometimes just to impress someone – did you know I can speak seven languages, Sam?

Sam
That’s just a barefaced lie, Rob! But I can see how easy lying can be, and that’s what neuroscientist Sophie Scott thinks. Here she is on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Seriously’ podcast, explaining how we sometimes lie just to be nice!

Sophie Scott, neuroscientist
Often what we mean by lying is someone setting out to deceive us with their words or their actions but actually normal conversation probably can only happen because we don’t actually say all the time exactly what we really think and what we really mean. And that kind of cooperation is at the heart, I think, of a lot of social interactions for humans and I think that’s one of the strong pushes to make conversation polite and therefore frequently not actually truthful.

Rob
So Sophie mentions two types of lying. There’s the one when we try to deceive someone – so that’s trying to hide something by tricking someone to gain an advantage.

Sam
Hmm, that’s like you getting me to pay £10 for a cinema ticket when actually they were only £5. That’s just dishonest, but there are also what I like to call white lies – small lies we tell to avoid upsetting someone. Those are lies that aren’t intended to give you an advantage.

Rob
Yes, Sophie Scott says we use them in normal conversation – when we don’t say what we really mean.

Sam
So, we want to make conversation polite because we want to cooperate with each other – she says cooperation is at the heart. Something that’s at the heart is the most important or essential part.

Rob
Now telling lies is one thing but how do you know if we’re being lied to?  Sometimes there are telltale signs, such as someone’s face turning red or someone shuffling their feet.

Sam
But if you really want to know if someone is lying, maybe we should listen to Richard Wiseman, a psychologist at the University of Hertfordshire. Here he is speaking on the ‘Seriously’ podcast…

Richard Wiseman, psychologist, University of Hertfordshire
Liars in general say less. They tend to have a longer what's called response latency, which is the time between the end of the question and the beginning of the answer. And there also tends to be an emotional distance in the lie – so the words ‘me’,’my’, ‘I’ – all those things tend to drop away in lies and it’s much much harder for liars to control what they’re saying and how they’re saying it, so focus your attention there, you become a better lie detector.

Rob
Some good advice from Richard Wiseman. So to detect lies we need to listen out for the response latency – a term used in psychology to describe the time taken between a stimulus or question and a response to it. The bigger the gap, the more chance there is that someone is lying. Is that a good summary, Sam?

Sam
Sort of, Rob. Richard also suggests we focus on – or concentrate on – what and how people are saying things too. There’s probably more to it than just that.

Rob
Well now you know how to detect my lies, Sam, maybe honestly is the best policy – as they say. So I’m now going to give you an honest answer to the question I asked earlier. A competition is held in Cumbria, in the UK, every year to award the title of "The Biggest Liar in the World". But which type of people are not allowed to take part?

a)    Farmers

b)    Lawyers

c)    Estate agents

Sam
I guessed c) estate agents.

Rob
And you are wrong, I’m afraid. Lawyers, as well as politicians, are not allowed to enter the competition. It’s claimed "they are judged to be too skilled at telling porkies" – porkies is an informal word for ‘pork pies’ and that rhymes with ‘lies’.

Sam
Fascinating stuff, Rob and that’s no lie! But now, shall we recap some of the vocabulary we’ve heard today?

Rob
Why not? A fib is a small inoffensive lie.

Sam
white lie is also a small lie, told to avoid upsetting someone.

Rob
When you deceive someone, you try to hide something by tricking them to gain an advantage.

Sam
When something is at the heart of something, it is the most important or essential part of it. And we heard about response latency – a term used in psychology to describe the time taken between a stimulus or question and a response to it.

Rob
OK, thank you, Sam. That’s all from 6 Minute English. We look forward to your company next time. Goodbye!

Sam
Bye everyone!

Wuhan, the capital city of Hubei province and the epicenter of the novel coronavirus outbreak in China, is starting to reopen its railway and flight services after more than two months of a lockdown and transportation suspension, according to local authorities and the country's civil aviation administrator.

The city restarted its service for trains arriving in its 17 railway stations on Saturday, while departure service will not open until April 8 when the city's lockdown will be lifted, the local railway bureau said.

Domestic passenger flights in Hubei's major airports, except Wuhan Tianhe International Airport, will restart from Sunday, while international flights and flights to and from Beijing, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan are still suspended, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said.

Wuhan Tianhe International Airport will only resume its domestic passenger flights from April 8.

Cargo flights will resume operation for all airports in Hubei from Sunday and the administration encouraged airlines to add both domestic and international flights to ensure a smooth supply chain.

Six tips to register for the Bt5,000 cash handout scheme

Mar 28. 2020

Facebook Twitter

By THE NATION

The government's cash handout initiative will open for registration at 6pm on Saturday (March 28). It aims to help those not covered by the social security system, who are affected by the order to close certain business venues to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

1. Read the details carefully to see whether or not you are qualified to receive the handout at www.เราไม่ทิ้งกัน.com

Prepare related documents in advance, including ID card, employment details, employer’s information, bank account or Prompt Pay account number. The registration will link directly to your bank account therefore there is no need to go down to the bank to open a new account.

2. Check your internet. The registration is accepted via online channel only and you need constant internet connection throughout the process or the registration will fail. Make sure no heavy internet usage is happening during the registration time.

3. Be prepared for unexpected setbacks. Sometimes the internet is temporarily down or the computer is frozen during the registration. It’s a good idea to have a backup computer or mobile phone in case things go wrong unexpectedly.

4. Find a good support. If you are not well-versed in computer or internet, ask others to help guide you. An extra set of eyes could be handy in case you miss something. 

5. Focus on the details. Input of huge amount of data in an online form can be overwhelming for some. Make sure to read the instructions carefully and be aware of your inputs at all times. Double or even triple check everything before you hit submit button.

6. Wait for your turn. Registration on the first day could be bumpy as the system can only take a certain number of users and could even go down if too many people try to access at once. If you can’t get in, it’s a good idea to wait a few hours, or even days, to try again. The Ministry of Finance has already said that the registration period has no deadline, so there’s no need to hurry.
