ESL 117: LA City Council Passes New Dog-Barking Law


Download


Noise. It gets into your head and under your skin. Too much noise can turn ordinary people into raging maniacs. All too-common noises in neighborhoods are the blaring TVs, blaring car radios, and barking dogs. Most cities have ordinances against excessive noise. Of course, if you complain about your neighbor's noise, your neighbor will hate you and start making more noise. So, many people try to ignore their inconsiderate neighbors. Finally, when they can take it no longer, they simply move.

The city council of Los Angeles recently came to the rescue of its residents—or seemed to. It passed a new ordinance: the owner of a dog that barks for 30 minutes straight will get a warning the first time a complaint is made. For a second complaint, the owner will pay a $100 fine or go to jail for a week maximum, or both. The council wrote no penalty concerning a third or fourth complaint. "Finally," said Zev Doheny, "we've passed a noise law with some teeth in it."

Of course, there are a few problems with the new law: How does a resident prove that a dog was barking for 30 minutes? Does he present an audio tape? With modern technology, couldn't that tape easily be "doctored" so that one minute of actual barking magically becomes 30 minutes? Couldn't a person tape just any old dog barking and then claim that it's his neighbor's dog doing all that barking? Do dogs have voiceprints, like humans have fingerprints? Will all dogs have to get "voice-printed?"

"There isn't one brain among the lot of them," complained the owner of a pet store when he heard about the council's new law. "Their ‘solutions' are almost always worse than the problems themselves."

Hội đồng Thành phố thông qua Luật mới- Chó sủa

Tiếng ồn. Nó đi vào đầu và xuyên qua da. Ồn quá có thể biến một người bình thường thành điên. Tất cả những tiếng ồn thông thường như tiếng TVs, tiếng radio trên xe hơi, và tiếng chó sủa. Hầu hết thành phố có những điều luật chống tiếng ồn. Dĩ nhiên, nếu bạn than phiền về tiếng ồn từ hàng xóm, hàng xóm sẽ ghét bạn và còn làm ầm ĩ hơn. Nên, nhiều người cố lờ đi những hàng xóm không tế nhị của họ. Cuối cùng, khi chịu không nổi nữa, thì họ chỉ dời nhà đi.

Hội đồng thành phố Ló Angeles vừa cứu thoát cho cư dân của họ - hoặc dường như vậy. Có một luật mới ra: Chủ của con chó nao sủa trong vòng 30 phút sẽ bị cảnh cáo nếu nhận được lời than phiền lần đầu tiên. Với lần than phiền thứ hai, chủ của con chó sẽ bị phạt $100 hoặc đi tù tối đa một tuần, hoặc cả hai. Không thấy Hội đồng nói đến việc phạt cho lời than phiền thứ ba hoặc thứ tư. "Cuối cùng", Zev Doheny nói, "Chúng ta đã thông qua luật tiếng ồn với vài cái răng trong đó."

Dĩ nhiên, có nhiều vấn đề với luật mới: Làm sao cư dân chứng minh rằng một con chó đã sủa 30 phút? Có cần phải trình băng ghi âm không? Với kỹ thuật hiện đại, cuộn băng có thể dễ dàng được "chế biến" để một phút thanh sủa 30 phút? Người ta có thể chỉ thu băng sủa của một con chó già và nói rằng đó là con chó hàng xóm sủa? Chó có tiếng sủa riêng, như dấu vân tay của con người không? Rồi mọi con chó có phải ghi âm "tiếng sủa riêng?"

"Không có một cái đầu nào giữa bọn họ," một người chủ cửa hàng thú nuôi than phiền khi nghe về luật mới của hội đồng. "Cách "giải quyết vấn đề" của họ còn tệ hơn vấn đề tiếng ồn."

Noise. It gets into your head and under your skin. Too much noise can turn ordinary people into raging maniacs. All too-common noises in neighborhoods are the blaring TVs, blaring car radios, and barking dogs. Most cities have ordinances against excessive noise. Of course, if you complain about your neighbor’s noise, your neighbor will hate you and start making more noise. So, many people try to ignore their inconsiderate neighbors. Finally, when they can take it no longer, they simply move .

The city council of Los Angeles recently came to the rescue of its residents—or seemed to. It passed a new ordinance: the owner of a dog that barks for 30 minutes straight will get a warning the first time a complaint is made. For the second complaint, the owner will pay a $100 fine or go to jail for a week maximum, or both. The council wrote no penalty concerning a third or fourth complaint. “Finally,” said Zev Doheny, “we’ve passed a noise law with some teeth in it.”

Of course, there are a few problems with the new law: How does a resident prove that a dog was barking for 30 minutes? Does he present an audio tape? With modern technology, couldn’t that tape easily be “doctored” so that one minute of actual barking magically becomes 30 minutes? Couldn’t a person tape just any old dog barking and then claim that it ’s his neighbor’s dog doing all that barking? Do dogs have voiceprints, like humans have fingerprints? Will all dogs have to get “voice-printed?”

“There isn’t one brain among the lot of them,” complained the owner of a pet store when he heard about the council’s new law. “Their ‘solutions’ are almost always worse than the problems themselves.”

*Translate into Vietnamese:
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Tiếng ồn. Nó đi vào đầu óc bạn và khiến bạn bực mình. Quá nhiều tiếng ồn có thể làm một người bình thường trở thành một người điên cuồng. Tất cả những tiếng ồn đã quá phổ biến trong khu dân cư như tiếng ti-vi mở lớn, tiếng ra-đi-ô xe hơi om sòm và tiếng chó sủa. Hầu hết các thành phố đều có các quy định để chống lại tiếng ồn quá mức. Tất nhiên, nếu bạn than phiền hàng xóm của bạn ồn ào quá, hàng xóm bạn sẽ thù ghét bạn và bắt đầu làm ồn hơn nữa. Vì thế, một số người tìm cách phớt lờ những người hàng xóm không ý tứ. Cuối cùng, khi họ không thể chịu đựng hơn được nữa, họ thường dọn nhà đi.

Vừa mới đây hội đồng thành phố Los Angeles đã tới để giải cứu cho người dân của mình-hoặc có vẻ như thế. Hội đồng đã thông qua một đạo luật mới: người chủ của một con chó sủa liên tục trong 30 phút sẽ nhận được lời cảnh cáo đầu tiên cho một đơn khiếu nại được thực hiện. Đối với lần khiếu nại thứ nhì, người chủ sẽ nộp 100 đô-la tiền phạt hoặc vào tù tối đa trong một tuần, hoặc cả hai thứ. Hội đồng không soạn thảo hình phạt liên quan đến đơn khiếu nại thứ ba hoặc thứ tư. "Cuối cùng," Zev Doheny phát biểu, "Chúng ta đã thông qua đạo luật tiếng ồn với việc tăng cường thêm sức mạnh cho đạo luật."

Tất nhiên, có một ít vấn đề với đạo luật mới: Làm thế nào để người dân chứng minh được rằng một con chó sủa trong 30 phút? Anh ta có phải đưa ra một băng thu âm? Với công nghệ hiện đại, cuộn băng thu âm đó có thể dễ dàng được "sửa chữa" để một phút sủa thực tế trở thành 30 phút? Người ta không thể thu âm tiếng sủa của bất kỳ con chó già nào đó và sau đó tuyên bố đó là tiếng sủa của chó nhà hàng xóm được sao? Loài chó có đồ thị sóng âm, giống như con người có dấu vân tay không? Tất cả các con chó sẽ phải có "đồ thị sóng âm" hay sao?

"Nhiều người trong số họ không có đầu óc mà," Chủ một tiệm bán thú cưng phàn nàn khi ông nghe về đạo luật mới của hội đồng. "'Cách giải quyết' của họ luôn luôn tệ hơn vấn đề cần giải quyết của họ nữa."
