Business Communication in Action  実践ビジネス英語
Hello everybody.   こんにちは。みなさん。
 
Hello and welcome to the show.
This is Heather Howard.
Let's take a look at conversation at work.
 
Curiosity Killed the Cat? (5)
 
Salmans says focusing on bad experiences is 
the result of human evolution:
apractice that helps people anticipate danger and react quickly in crisis.
However constant negativity can increase stress and harm our health.
The group talks about the benefits of curiosity including 
strengthening people'srelationships and improving healthcare.
 
 
Evolutionary adaptation: Here with "evolutionary", 
Salmans is talking about thedevelopment of a species 
to become stronger, better able to survive in itsenvironment.
Evolutionary scientist would study that process over the years.
And "evolution" and "evolve" can also refer to the growth 
and development of a company or a person.
You could say, the company evolved from a typewriter manufacturer 
to making computers.
 
Anticipate danger:
 
Constant negativity:
Always thinking negative thoughts, having a negative outlook 
on the world.
We also have the opposite term "positivity."
Like, we need more positivity in this office, maybe some, 
ah, incentives to meet ourquota.
 
Negative Ned / Negative Nancy 
いつもいつもすべてに対して否定的に考えている人
 
Oh, And I've heard for a person who's always nervous, 
a nervous Nelly.
 
Settle for: When we settle, we accept less than what we wanted 
or what was best.
Wecompromise basically.
So, Ueda could accept the situation where only half of his worries 
actually happened.
You could also say, the union wanted a 5% raise. But it's settled for 3%.
So, it was willing to agree to that deal.
 
Antidote: Salmans says, "You know, one of the best antidotes 
to worrying is curiosity."
 
Place avalue on: Place a high value.
That means "value something highly, attach great importance to it."
I place a high value on honesty.
You know, I hate lying and I hate being lied to.
Or, he places a high value on independence.
You know, he doesn’t wanna work for other people.
He wants his own business.
 
Genius: People, the having of extremely high intelligence and ability.

You could say, "He's a genius at engineering."
Or, she's a genius marketer.

 
You don't have to be a genius to figure that out.
ということは天才でなくてもわかる。だれにでもわかる。
 
Proven fact: This fact has been verified. It has been confirmed to be true.
It's a proven fact that the world is round.
Ah. Likewise, it's a proven fact that human beings evolved from apes.
 
Worldview: The way we see the world.
The perspective we have for seeing and interpreting the world.
You could have a xenophobic worldview.
Or, you could have a liberal worldview.
And obviously this is shaped by things like where we live, 
what we read, how muchmoney we make.
Lots of different factors.
 
Genuinely: Down at the bottom, Ueda says,
"When doctors are genuinely curious about their patients, 
both parties make betterdecisions."
When they're honestly curious, sincerely curious.
You could say, "I wasn't trying to flatter him. 
I genuinely think it's a goodidea."
Likewise, the adjective, "genuine" is something real, not faked.
A genuine designer watch, for example, not a knockoff, 
not a counterfeit.
 
Read somewhere: Ueda says,
"I read somewhere that three-quarters of our worries never happen."
We often say this when we can't remember where we read 
some information or we just don'twanna bother bringing that up.
So, you could say things like, I read somewhere that
the voluntourism is popular lately.
Or, similarly, I heard somewhere that's a good restaurant.
 
 
That's all for today.
 
See you next time. Bye, bye.
