Hello, Dear Friends

Voici votre nouvel exercice de corrections ... Mon pauvre élève a laissé 19 fautes (mais certaines sont répétées dans l'extrait ... ) Beaucoup de travail, donc ... Bon courage à tous ...

Please, HELP MY STUDENT! He has left 19 mistakes in this text... They are to be corrected in capital letters.

Like many New Yorkers, Meg Loughney faced a stressful daily commute. Typically, it would take her more than an hour to travel at her home to her office at a management consultancy on Wall Street. It involved three modes of transport: a bus to drop off her baby daughter to day-care, then a packed subway carriage into Manhattan’s Financial District and finally a brisk 15 minutes walk to the office. That was before Covid-19 stay-at-home order stopped everyone. Now, after several weeks of working from home, Loughney admits that she actually lacks of her commute. “It’s pitifully sad to say that, but it’s true,” she says. “Working from home – for those of us enough fortunate to be still working – has brought an added layer of stress. The need to be always on, to be always working. You’re working through dinner; you’re working after dinner; you’re working after you put your kids down to bed. There is no separation, and the commute provided that mental separation.”/// END OF PART ONE //
Numerous studies and surveys have found that commuting is people’s less favourite activity, which revealed the journey to work to be more stressful than the actual job (or a visit to the dentist). Yet, it is seen as a psychologic threshold between home and work. The daily commute offers an opportunity for people to engage in “role-clarifying prospection”, meaning it gives them time and place to think about the upcoming work role. In other words, the commute acts as a traditional buffer. Employees that engage in some degree of prospection are found to have greater job satisfaction and improved work-related outcomes. Perhaps the commute also offers an opportunity to step into deeper levels of creativity, even as we’re jostling along in a jam-packed bus or train.

That was before Covid-19 stay-at-home order stopped everyone. Now, after several weeks of working from home, Loughney admits that she actually lacks (MISSES) her commute.

“It’s pitifully sad to say that, but it’s true,” she says. “Working from home – for those of us fortunate ENOUGH to be still working – has brought an added layer of stress.

THEY need to be always on, to be always working. You’re working through dinner; you’re working after dinner; you’re working after you put your kids down to bed. There is no separation, and COMMUTING providES that mental separation.”/// END OF PART ONE //

J’avais oublié de vous noter que l’exercice est un et que la correction sera en ligne le vendredi 12 juin tard... … Juste fini à temps !

Quelques passages restent difficiles à comprendre malgré tout ce travail en amont :
Here is my translation :

Comme beaucoup de New-Yorkais, Meg Loughney a dû faire face à un trajet quotidien stressant. Typiquement, il lui faudrait plus d’une heure pour voyager à partir de sa maison à son bureau à un cabinet de conseil en gestion à Wall Street. Il s’agissait de trois modes de transport : un bus pour déposer sa petite fille à la garderie AT, puis une voiture de métro prise dans le quartier financier de Manhattan et enfin une rapide marche de 15 minutes à pied du bureau. C’était avant que l’ordre du confinement à la maison de Covid-19 n’arrête tout le monde. Maintenant, après plusieurs semaines de travail de la maison, Loughney admet que son trajet lui manque réellement. « C’est pitoyablement triste de dire cela, mais c’est vrai », dit-elle. « Travailler à la maison – pour ceux d’entre nous qui ont assez de chance pour continuer à travailler – a apporté une couche supplémentaire de stress. Le besoin d’être toujours être sur, d’être toujours être au travail. Vous travaillez tout au long du dîner; vous travaillez après le dîner; vous travaillez après avoir mis vos enfants au lit. Il n’y a pas de séparation, et le trajet a fourni cette séparation mentale. FIN DE LA PREMIÈRE PARTIE //De nombreuses études et enquêtes ont révélé que le déplacement est l’activité préférée des gens moins, ce qui a révélé que le voyage au travail était plus stressant que le travail réel (ou une visite chez le dentiste). Pourtant, ce temps est considéré comme un seuil psychologique entre la maison et le travail. Le trajet quotidien offre aux gens l’occasion de s’engager dans une « prospection de clarification des rôles », ce qui leur donne le temps et le lieu de réflexion sur le rôle de travail à venir. En d’autres termes, le trajet agit comme un tampon traditionnel. On constate que les employés qui s’engagent dans un certain degré de prospection ont une plus grande satisfaction au travail et des résultats améliorés liés au travail. Peut-être que le trajet offre également l’occasion d’entrer dans des niveaux plus profonds de créativité, même si nous sommes bousculés dans un bus ou un train plein à craquer. Partout dans le monde, le temps moyen de trajet pour les hommes et les femmes qui travaillent est de 38 minutes dans chaque sens. FIN DE LA DEUXIÈME PARTIE///
Cela s’ajoute à beaucoup d’ « entre-deux » temps, qui offre à beaucoup les chances de lire, écouter un podcast, livres-audio ou de recourir à jouer à Candy Crush ou au Scrabble. La réflexion est particulièrement utile sur le trajet du soir, après la fin de la journée de travail. Et puis bien sûr, l’esprit se projette pour planifier la soirée, quand vous arrivez avec un bon moyen de préparer ces restes, ou un moyen de glisser des légumes dans le repas de votre enfant difficile. « 'est le genre de voyage dans le temps qui se passe pendant l’ennui et pendant l’errance mentale, je pense que le temps entre les deux est très vital. » Ce temps est prisé par les gens qui se déplacent en voiture, aussi. Ils manquent du sanctuaire de leur voiture le matin où ils auraient leur petit déjeuner et d’écouter les livres audio ou la musique. La technologie Bluetooth dans la voiture leur a également permis d’attraper des appels et des messages, ce qui l’a aidée à gérer leur temps plus efficacement. FIN DU TEXTE.

Hello, Dear Friends,

Voici la correction du texte de mon élève ... de ses 19 fautes ... (peut-être plus, en fait, car j'ai du mal à les compter ... )
Vous avez grogné .... et trouvé le texte difficile ... En tout cas, il valait bien ses et il vous fallait donc les mériter ! Allons-y !

Like many New Yorkers, Meg Loughney faced a stressful daily commute. Typically, it would take her more than an hour to travel from (1) her home to her office at a management consultancy on Wall Street. It involved three modes of transport: a bus to drop off her baby daughter at day-care (2), then a packed subway carriage into Manhattan’s Financial District and finally a brisk 15-minute walk(3) to the office. That was before the Covid-19 stay-at-home order (4) stopped everyone. Now, after several weeks of working from home, Loughney admits that she actually misses her commute (5). “It’s pitifully sad to say that, but it’s true,” she says. “Working from home – for those of us fortunate enough (6) to be still working – has brought an added layer of stress. The need to be always on, to be always working. You’re working through dinner; you’re working after dinner; you’re working after you put your kids down to bed. There is no separation, and the commute provided that mental separation.”/// END OF PART ONE ///
Numerous studies and surveys have found that commuting is people’s least favourite activity (7), which revealed the journey to work to be more stressful than the actual job (or a visit to the dentist’s). Yet, it is seen as a psychological (8) threshold between home and work. The daily commute offers an opportunity for people to engage in “role-clarifying prospection”, meaning it gives them time and space (9) to think about the upcoming work role.

Nous avons déjà Choco qui a travaillé sur le texte entier (mais non corrigé ) et Magie qui s'est engagée pour la première partie ... Des doublons systématiques seraient sans doute très profitables ... Ne vous inquiétez pas pour les délais, car je travaille encore sur les exercices 180 et 181 ... et ensuite, j'aurai la fin de Our Story 81, puis ... puis ... Don't worry... j'aime ça !
Allez, bon courage pour regarder les corrections et vous lancer, si vous le voulez pour traduire un peu de ce vilain texte ...

bonjour comme promis voici ma part de traduction 1ere partie du texte!

Like many New Yorkers, Meg Loughney faced a stressful daily commute. Typically, it would take her more than an hour to travel from (1) her home to her office at a management consultancy on Wall Street. It involved three modes of transport: a bus to drop off her baby daughter at day-care (2), then a packed subway carriage into Manhattan’s Financial District and finally a brisk 15-minute walk(3) to the office. That was before the Covid-19 stay-at-home order (4) stopped everyone. Now, after several weeks of working from home, Loughney admits that she actually misses her commute (5). “It’s pitifully sad to say that, but it’s true,” she says. “Working from home – for those of us fortunate enough (6) to be still working – has brought an added layer of stress. The need to be always on, to be always working. You’re working through dinner; you’re working after dinner; you’re working after you put your kids down to bed. There is no separation, and the commute provided that mental separation.

Comme de nombreux New-Yorkay,Meg Loughney a dû faire face à un trajet quotidien stressant.En général,il lui fallait plus d'une heure pour se rendre de son domicile à son bureau,dans un cabinet de conseil en gestion de Wall Street.Elle devait utiliser trois modes de transport:un bus pour déposer sa petite fille à la garderie,puis un métro bondé jusqu'au quartier financier de Manhattan et enfin un trajet rapide de 15 minutes à pied jusqu'au bureau.C'était avant le Covid-19 et que l'ordre de rester à la maison n'arrête tout le monde.Aujourd'hui,après plusieurs semaines de travail à domicile,Loughney admet qu'en réalité son trajet lui manque.C'est effroyablement triste de dire cela,mais c'est vrai,dit-elle.Travailler à la maison-pour ceux d'entre nous qui ont encore la chance de travailler-a apporté une couche de stress supplémentaire.La nécessité de toujours être dans l'action,de toujours travailler,vous travaillez pendant le dîner,vous travaillez après le dîner vous travaillez après avoir mis les enfants au lit.Il n'y a pas de séparation,le trajet procure cette coupure .

Hello, Dearest Friends,

Je me mets à la correction de votre "Follow-up Work". Je ne garantis pas que ce sera terminé ce jour ... Soyez patients !

Comme beaucoup de New-Yorkais, Meg Loughney a dû faire * faisait face à un trajet quotidien stressant. Typiquement, il lui faudrait fallait **plus d’une heure pour voyager à partir (pour aller) de sa maison à son bureau dans un cabinet de conseil en gestion à Wall Street. Il s’agissait de trois modes de transport : un bus pour déposer sa petite fille à la garderie, puis une voiture de métro prise dansen direction du quartier financier de Manhattan et enfin une rapide marche de 15 minutes à pied du jusqu'au bureau. C’était avant que l’ordre du confinement à la maison de Covid-19 n’arrête tout le monde. Maintenant, après plusieurs semaines de travail de la maison, Loughney admet que son trajet lui manque réellement. « C’est pitoyablement triste de dire cela, mais c’est vrai », dit-elle. « Travailler à la maison – pour ceux d’entre nous qui ont assez de chance pour continuer à travailler – a apporté une couche supplémentaire de stress. Le besoin d’être toujours être sur en action, d’être toujours être au travail. Vous travaillez tout au long du dîner; vous travaillez après le dîner; vous travaillez après avoir mis vos enfants au lit. Il n’y a pas de séparation, et le trajet a fourni fournissait cette séparation mentale. et Choco (pas facile pour les temps, n'est-ce pas ... )

* pas de notion de "devoir passé" dans la phrase originale.
** would fréquentatif= une habitude (se traduit par un imparfait en français ...)

Magie et pour ce très bon travail.

Numerous studies and surveys have found that commuting is people’s least favourite activity, which revealed the journey to work to be more stressful than the actual job (or a visit to the dentist’s). Yet, it is seen as a psychological threshold between home and work. The daily commute offers an opportunity for people to engage in “role-clarifying prospection”, meaning it gives them time and space to think about the upcoming work role. In other words, the commute acts as a transitional buffer. Employees that engage in some degree of prospection are found to have greater job satisfaction and improved work-related outcomes. Perhaps the commute also offers an opportunity to tap into deeper levels of creativity, even as we’re jostled along on a jam-packed bus or train. Around the globe, the average commuting time for working men and women is 38 minutes each way.

De nombreuses études et enquêtes ont révélé que le déplacement est l’activité préférée des gens moins est l'activité LA MOINS APPRECIEE de la population(*), ce qui a révélé que le voyage au travail était plus stressant que le travail réel le trajet pour aller au travail était plus stressant que la journée de travail (ou qu'une visite chez le dentiste). Pourtant, ce temps est considéré comme un seuil psychologique entre la maison et le travail . Le trajet quotidien offre aux gens l’occasion de s’engager dans une « recherche de clarification des rôles », ce qui leur donne le temps et le lieu de réflexion sur le rôle de travail à venir. En d’autres termes, le trajet agit comme un tampon traditionnel de transition. On constate que les employés qui s’engagent dans un certain degré de prospection ont une plus grande satisfaction au travail et des résultats améliorés liés au travail. Peut-être que le trajet offre également l’occasion d’entrerde puiser dans des niveaux plus profonds de créativité, même si nous sommes bousculés dans un bus ou un train pleins à craquer. Partout dans le monde, le temps moyen de trajet pour les hommes et les femmes qui travaillent est de 38 minutes dans chaque sens. Choco et beaucoup pour ce très bon travail.

* Choco ... je comprends que tu aimes le métro de chez toi ... , mais franchement comment peux-tu dire ça ?
** prospection : exploration, recherche.

That adds up to a lot of “in-between” time, which offers many a chance to read, listen to a podcast, audiobooks or resort to playing Candy Crush or Scrabble. Reflection is particularly helpful on the evening commute, after the working day is done. And then of course, the mind casts forwards to plan the evening, when you come up with a good way of preparing those leftovers, or a way to slip vegetables into your fussy child’s meal. “That’s the sort of time travelling that happens during boredom and during mind wandering, I think that in-between time is very vital.” That time is prized by people who commute by car, too. They miss the sanctuary of their car in the morning where they would have breakfast and listen to either audiobooks or music. Bluetooth technology in the car also allowed them to catch up on calls and messages, which helped to manage their time more effectively.

Cela s’ajoute à beaucoup d’« entre-deux » temps,"temps intermédiaires" qui offrent à beaucoup la chances de lire, d'écouter un podcast, des livres-audio ou de recourir se mettre à jouer à Candy Crush ou au Scrabble. Réfléchir est particulièrement utile sur le trajet du soir, après la fin de la journée de travail. Et puis bien sûr, l’esprit se projette pour planifier la soirée, quand vous arrivez (trouvez) avec un bon moyen de préparer ces restes, ou un moyen de glisser des légumes dans le repas de votre enfant difficile. « C'est le genre de voyage dans le temps qui se passe pendant l’ennui et pendant l’errance mentale, je pense que le temps entre les deux est très vital. le temps intermédiaire est fondamental.» Ce temps est prisé par les gens qui se déplacent en voiture, aussi. Ils manquent du sanctuaire (refuge)* de leur voiture le matin où ils auraient prenaient leur petit déjeuner et d’écouter écoutaient des livres audio ou de la musique. La technologie Bluetooth dans la voiture leur a également permis d’attraper des appels de rattraper .... et des messages en retard, ce qui les aidait à gérer leur temps plus efficacement. [Dans ces dernières lignes, on regrette le "bon vieux temps" des "compressions innommables", torture quotidiennes dans les transports en commun avant covid ... ]
Bravo Choco pour cet énorme travail ...
* Là, il serait plus naturel de dire: Le refuge/ La sécurité de leur voiture leur manque ...

Le phénomène assez "étonnant" (qui consiste à regretter ces temps "vides" transitionnels pendant les aller-retours quotidiens) m'a semblé (euh, pardon... ) a semblé "intéressant" à mon élève ! Pour moi, il est "incroyable" dans tous les sens du terme !
