WORLD NEWS听写PK大赛第75期(2010年8月16日)

楼主:八月捕蝉 日期: 回贴:5 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。

WORLD NEWS --- Aug 16th, 2010

Written by Voice of America        听写交流稿,错误之处请多多指正!

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

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon traveled to severely flooded areas of Pakistan Sunday. Mr. Ban said he has never seen a natural disaster of this size. He urged international donors to speed up aid for the 20 million victims of the disaster. The UN Chief met with both Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani and President Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday. Mr. Ban said he will report back to the UN General Assembly meeting set for Thursday to discuss Pakistan's needs. The UN says it has received 20% of the 460 million dollars it requested in emergency aid. Aid workers say 6 million people need food, clean water, shelter and medicine. Officials say the floods have killed about 1400 people.

A series of attacks in Iraq has killed at least 10 people and wounded more than 20 others. Police say 3 people were killed Sunday when a bomb struck a small bus heading into Baghdad. A policeman was among the dead. Other bomb attacks killed 3 more people in the Iraqi capital. In Babil province, police say attackers shot and killed 3 Sunni Muslims as they left a religious center. And in the northern city of Mosul, a gunman killed an Iraqi soldier at a security station.

The top NATO and American commander in Afghanistan says he sees progress in the war there. General David Petraeus spoke Sunday on an American television news program. He said the fight against Taliban is an "up and down process". He said the goal is to defeat the Taliban and prevent Afghanistan from again becoming a hiding place for international extremists. He also said peace in Afghanistan will involve talks among the government, the Taliban and other rebel groups at some point. General Petraeus noted that President Obama's goal of starting a troop withdrawal from Afghanistan depends on the level of security achieved in the country. President Obama has set July 2011 as the date when United States forces will begin leaving Afghanistan.

Afghanistan's mining ministry says a new oil field has been discovered in the north of the country. The oil field has estimated 1.8 billion containers of crude. A ministry spokesman says it is between Balkh and Jawzjan provinces. The discovery was made during an inspection by Afghan and international scientists. The ministry spokesman said the inspection will be studied by the end of this year or early next year. He says the country will then offer the field for developments.

In Russia, a new ban on grain exports began Sunday as efforts to control food prices continue. Russia is experiencing its most severe lack of rain in more than 100 years. The ban on grain exports was announced last week by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. He said the grain harvest could be as low as 60 million tons because of a lack of rain as well as wildfires and record heat. The grain harvest last year was 97 million tons. Russia needs 79 million tons for its own use. It is expected to use grain left from last year to make up the difference. The export ban caused world grain prices to rise. Much of Russia's wheat is exported to Egypt, Turkey, Syria and Iran. The export ban is set to extend to December 31st.

You are listening to the news in VOA Special English.

Officials in Sudan are searching for 2 Jordanian peacekeepers who were kidnapped in the Darfur area. Jordan's information minister Ali Ayed said the 2 peacekeepers are among only 4 from Jordan in the joint United Nations-African Union peace operation in Darfur. An operation spokesman said 3 gunmen in a vehicle seized the 2 peacekeepers Saturday. The incident happened as they walked toward a UN-AU transport station near their home in the South Darfur State capital, Nyala.

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak gave a speech Sunday to mark the anniversary of Korea's freedom from Japanese rule. Mr. Lee spoke about what he called "the path toward reuniting" with North Korea. Mr. Lee said it is time for North Korea to make a brave change. He also warned that his government would answer any aggression from North Korea. There was no immediate answer Sunday from North Korea. Earlier, North Korea had warned against joint military exercises planned by South Korea and the United States. The exercises are to begin Monday. About 30,000 American troops and 56,000 South Korean soldiers will take part in the 10-day exercise.

Police in Nepal detained more than 60 people during a nationwide strike Sunday. The strike was to protest parliament's failure to finish writing a new constitution. Stores and offices were closed across the country. Police say the protest was mostly peaceful. But they say several demonstrators were arrested in the capital, Katmandu, when they tried to stop vehicles. The strike was called by the Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities, an organization of ethic minority groups. The federation is urging the government to speed up its writing of the constitution. The process has slowed because of delays in choosing a new Prime Minister.

In Turkey, Orthodox Christians have been allowed to pray at an ancient religious center for the first time in 90 years. At least 1500 people from Turkey, Greece and Russia traveled to the town of Sumela Sunday. They prayed with the leader of the world's Orthodox Christians at a monastery built about 160 years ago. Christians have not taken part in usual religious ceremonies there since ethnic Greeks were expelled in 1923. Earlier this year, the Turkish government told the leader of the group that it would permit a prayer service at Sumela once a year.

Here again is the major news of the hour.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has traveled to severely flooded areas of Pakistan. A series of attacks in Iraq has killed at least 10 people and wounded more than 20 others. And the top NATO and American commander in Afghanistan says he sees progress in the war there.
