[Homework]2016-05-05&05-07 委内瑞拉遭遇“电荒” 政府启动40天限电计划

Blow drying her hair at a beauty salon, it's been a daily routine for G for a long time.You don't want to see my natural hair, she says, but for now her natural style will have to do. As a part of measures to save power, the Venezuelan government has asked people to reduce the use of hair dryers and other electrical devices like microwave ovens. Pretty soon we will only be able to use candles like the old times, she says, earlier this month president Nicolas Maduro decreed a four-day work week, forcing people especially government workers to take Fridays off, and now Venezuelan energy minister Ris M says there will be rolling blackouts.
The four-hour long blackouts will happen each day nationwide, the energy minister says they'll begin Monday and will last 40 days, why? Venezuelan officials say a drought caused the El Nino weather pattern has greatly reduced Venezuela's ability to produce enough power at a dam that provides 75% of the country's electricity.
Water levels at the Guri dam are very low, the minister says the blackouts will allow levels to stabilize, outside observers who are experts on Venezuelan affairs say it's not El Nino's fault, but years of mismanagement, the lack of investment in the power grid by the socialist government.
Maduro was deeply embarrassed last month when the power went out during a speech broadcast live on national television, a little taste of the bitter reality average Venezuelans endure on a daily basis.
