我要文章的大意和detail

Most people think that the only way to get rid of unwanted household appliances, clothing or furniture is to haul them to the garbage dump. However, just because you don't want that old bookshelf or the shirts you haven't worn for a year doesn't mean that someone else can't use them. This is the philosophy behind the freecycle network.

Deron Beal started Freecycle in Arizona in 2003 by emailing 30 or 40 friends. He asked them if they had anything lying around the house that they wanted to get rid of. Almost immediately, this small net work expanded to include 800 members.

Since its establishment, many people in need have benefited from the Freecycle network. A victim of Hurricane Katrina was able to furnish a new home with items from Freecycle. A woman in Texas was able to collect items from Freecycle for orphans in Haiti. The organization is not only about helping people but also about reducing wasted by keeping 300 million tons of trash out of landfills everyday. Therefore, if you have any unwanted items collecting dust in your house, "freecycle" them and make a difference in someone else's life.

我要每段的大意

並用白話去解釋

    1. Most people think that the only way to get rid of ...

    1-1) 大意: 大多數人會將不要的東西, 如家用器具, 衣服或傢俱,

    丟至垃圾場 。

    1-2) 說明:

    本文作者對這種作法不以為然。

    如何看出來? 請看連接副詞: However及否定這種作法之用字:

    doesn’t mean 以及隱含在freecycle之“cycle”.

    1-3) Supporting sentence: However, just because you don’t want

    that old bookshelf or the shirts you haven’t worn for a year

    DOESN’T MEAN that someone else can’t use them.

    2. Deron Beal started Freecycle in Arizona in 2003 by ...

    2-1) 大意: Deron Beal在2003年以電郵詢問30 or 40個朋友, 看他

    們是否有家裡頭要立即丟棄的東西。很快, Freecycle就擴增至

    800個。

    2-2)說明:

    本文作者認為: 大多數人都認同Freecycle之理念而願意將不要的

    東西, 如家用器具衣 服或傢俱做回收處理。

    如何看出來? 請看: 一個小小small net work的會員很快地

    ALMOST IMMEDIATELY EXPANDED 就擴增至800個。

    2-3) Supporting sentence: Almost immediately, this small net work

    EXPANDED to include 800 members.

    3. Since its establishment, many people in need have benefited from...

    3-1) 大意: 自從Freecycle network成立以來, 很多人因而受益,

    如Katrina颶風的受害者能用Freecycle提供之回收物品, 裝潢新

    家。也有一位女士從Freecycle收集回收物品, 送給海地的孤兒

    用。 Freecycle不僅幫助人們, 也幫助垃圾掩埋場減少廢料。

    3-2)說明:

    本文作者認為: “freecycle”之作法對個人, 家庭, 社會, 政府, 與

    國際都有利。

    如何看出來? 請看下列用字: A victim, orphans (個人) ; a new

    home, in your house (家庭); landfills (社會政府), Haiti (政府國際),

    have benefited, make a difference (有利)。

    3-3) Supporting sentence: The organization is not only about helping

    people but also about reducing wasted by keeping 300 million tons

    of trash out of landfills everyday.

    Most people think that the only way to get rid of unwanted household appliances, clothing or furniture is to haul them to the garbage dump. However, just because you don't want that old bookshelf or the shirts you haven't worn for a year doesn't mean that someone else can't use them. This is the philosophy behind the freecycle network.

    本段重點:由中間的 However 開始,一直到最後(However, ... the freecycle network).

    重點說明:個人所不想要的物品,並不表示他人也不想要,而這正是網路上「以物易物」活動的最初構想.

    Deron Beal started Freecycle in Arizona in 2003 by emailing 30 or 40 friends. He asked them if they had anything lying around the house that they wanted to get rid of. Almost immediately, this small net work expanded to include 800 members.

    本段重點:第一句(Deron Beal... friends)及最後一句話(Almost... members).

    重點說明:「以物易物」活動是在 2003 年由居住在美國亞利桑那州的 Deron Beal,透過傳送 e-mail 所發起的.這個活動引起熱烈的回響,從一開始 30 ~ 40 朋友,迅速地擴增到 800 會員.

    Since its establishment, many people in need have benefited from the Freecycle network. A victim of Hurricane Katrina was able to furnish a new home with items from Freecycle. A woman in Texas was able to collect items from Freecycle for orphans in Haiti. The organization is not only about helping people but also about reducing wasted by keeping 300 million tons of trash out of landfills everyday. Therefore, if you have any unwanted items collecting dust in your house, "freecycle" them and make a difference in someone else's life.

    本段重點:第一句話(Since... Freecycle network)及最後一句話(Therefore, ... life).

    重點說明:在推動「以物易物」的活動後,造福了許多人;例如美國卡崔納颶風的受災戶、海地的孤兒院...等.如果願意將家中不需要的物品捐給推行「以物易物」的組織,將可以改善那些需要援助之朋友的生活.

    Sorry, 不曉得原文的部分為什麼會有亂碼;可能要請你對照原先的正文囉!
