WORLD NEWS听写PK大赛第74期(2010年8月9日)

楼主:八月捕蝉 日期: 回贴:3 浏览:

VAN ALLEN 站长引言:听写训练是提高听力最为有效的方式之一,UNSV.COM 发布的 VOA Special English 专题节目资料中,几乎都同时提供节目文稿和配套的MP3录音,是绝佳的听写训练资料。尤其是 World News 专题,内容涵盖今日世界最新时事报道,很多英语爱好者每天听 World News 了解世界大事。同时,World News 专题节目也是大多数高校英语专业学生的必听资料。

然而,World News 专题却只有节目MP3录音,没有配套的标准文本。很多人觉得这很遗憾,但事实上,它巧妙地为我们提供了一次更好地学习和互动的机会——参与World News 听写 PK大赛活动。此项赛事,要求所有参赛者提交自己的原创听写稿。正因为没有“标准答案”可供参考,所以World News 听写 PK大赛才具可行性。举办World News听写PK大赛旨在帮助网友加强学习交流,提高学习兴趣,丰富网站活动,欢迎各位英语爱好者积极参与!

八月捕蝉发言:首先对大家能积极参与这个栏目,我代表网站表示深深的感谢! 对于大家的建议,我虚心采纳。我的总结稿里面也有很多不合适的地方,大家如果有意见,欢迎发帖,我虚心接受并改正。 我与大家一样,不过是一名英语爱好者,参加评比的当中不乏高手,有的水平远远在我之上。我也曾经在英语学习的过程中饱受着酸甜苦辣! 其实评比只是鼓励一种形式,只要大家喜欢这个栏目,我会努力在以后的工作中,更加细心,把栏目做得更好。

It is 00:30 universal time and here is the news in special English.

Pakistani aid workers say continued heavy rains have worsened conditions in the country.  Flooding in Pakistan has killed more than 1600 people and affected up to 15 million others. Floodwaters have destroyed hundreds of thousands of homes and washed away roads, bridges, corps and farm animals. New rainfall again slowed efforts to help people in the northwestern province of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. The rains also spread to the agricultural center of Punjab and south along the Indus River to Sindh province. On Sunday, landslides killed at least 28 people in the northern area of Gilgit-Baltistan. However, Pakistani officials said they feared as many as 40 people were killed.

Rains and landslides have killed at least 127 people in northwestern China. 2000 others are missing. Rescue teams are searching for survivors in a mainly ethnic Tibetan area of Gansu province. Chinese Premier Wen Jabao visited the area on Sunday. The Xinhua news agency said the landslides took place Saturday night and early Sunday morning as people slept. At least one village was completely buried.

In central Europe, floodwaters have killed at least 14 people and forced thousands of others to flee their homes. Dams broke and rising waters overflowed barriers in the Czech Republic, Germany, Lithuania and Poland. Soldiers helped police and emergency workers in using boats to rescue flood victims. Others needed helicopters to escape from the top of buildings. The flooding in Europe follows days of heavy rains.

Russian firefighters are reporting progress in battling some of the worst wildfires in the country’s history. National Emergencies Minister Sergei Shoigu says conditions are improving in several major areas east of Moscow.  However, ministry officials are ordering firefighters to deal with fires around the Snezhinsk nuclear weapon center in the Euro Mountains. Fires burning near Moscow have covered the city with a thick yellow ash smoke.

A lawyer who fled Iran has arrived in Norway.  Mohammed Mostafaei represented an Iranian woman who was sentenced to death by stoning.  He escaped to Turkey after being questioned by Iranian officials.  Mr. Mostafaei is considering seeking asylum in Norway.  The lawyer said he received a one-year travel visa from that country.  He said he also had received assistance from the Norwegian Embassy in Turkey after fleeing Iran late last month.

Iraqi officials say bombs have killed 53 people during the past 2 days. On Sunday, a bomb killed 8 people and wounded 23 others in the city of Ramadi. In Fallujah, another bomb killed 2 people and wounded at least 3 others. And Iraqi officials now say at least 43 people were killed in an explosion Saturday in Basra. Earlier report said 14 people died. The United States Military’s Battle Operations in Iraq are set to end on August 31st.

An Afghan human rights group says more than 1300 civilians have been killed in Afghanistan this year. That would represent an increase of about 5% from this time last year.  An independent human rights commission said the Taliban is responsible for 60% of the deaths. The rights group said Afghan and NATO troops are to blame for 23%.  The group is not sore about the rest.  In other news: The North Atlantic Treaty Organization said 3 of its troops died Sunday in 2 separate bombings in southern Afghanistan.

Reports from Somalia say security forces in the Puntland area clashed Sunday with a militia linked to the resistance group, Al-Shabab. Puntland officials say their forces attacked and captured a base of the militia’s commander.  They said 15 of its fighters were killed during the clash in the Galgala Mountain area.  A spokesman for the militia told the Associated Press that 7 militiamen were injured in the fighting.  At least one Puntland soldier was reported killed.

The presidents of Colombia and Venezuela will meet this week for talks aimed at settling the dispute between their countries. The foreign ministers of both countries say the presidents will meet Tuesday in Bogota.  Venezuela broke ties with Colombia last month after Colombian President Alvaro Uribe accused Venezuela of sheltering Colombian rebels. Mr. Uribe left office on Saturday. Juan Manuel Santos was sworn in as the country’s new president. Earlier Sunday, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez urged rebels to release all their hostages.  He also rejected the appointment of Larry Palmer as the American Ambassador to Venezuela. The president said Mr.  Palmer broke the rules of diplomacy by saying there are clear ties between the Venezuelan government and the Colombian rebels.

An Israeli jail has released a former technician who spent 18 years in prison for making public information about Israel’s nuclear program.  This time, Mordechai Vanunu was serving a 3-month jail sentence for communicating with news reporters and foreigners. Vanunu formerly worked at Israel’s top secret nuclear center near the town of Dimona. An Israeli court found him guilty of providing details of Israeli’s nuclear arms to Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper in 1986.

And now briefly, here again is the major news of the hour read in VOA Special English.

Pakistani aid workers say heavy rains have worsened floodwaters in the country. Rains and landslides have killed at least 127 people in northwestern China, 2000 others are missing. And a human rights group says more than 1300 civilians have been killed in Afghanistan this year.
