WORLD NEWS听写PK大赛第84期(2010年10月25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。

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

The number of deaths from the disease cholera continues to grow in Haiti. Health officials say the outbreak has killed 253 people and sickened about 3,000 since it was first reported last week. Concern has grown that the disease could spread across Haiti's capital Port-au-Prince. Health officials say 5 cases of cholera have been found in the city. But the chief Haitian health officer said Sunday that the rate of reported cases is decreasing. Most of those infected live in the Artibonite area of central Haiti. Aid agencies are giving out substances to make water safe and cleaning supplies in the infected areas in an effort to contain the disease.

Yemeni officials say security forces and local tribes have launched a search for hundreds of al-Qaida militants in the country. The officials say Saudi citizens are among the al-Qaida fighters active in Yemen. Yemeni security officials say more than 1,000 soldiers and local tribe members began the operation Saturday. They are looking for the group called al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula. It formed last year and is based in the mountain area of Yemen's southern Shabwa province.

The high court in Iraq has ordered Parliament to meet and form a new government. The Supreme Court ruled Sunday almost 8 months after Iraq's election. The court said that Parliament's decision in June to suspend its meetings was unconstitutional. The acting speaker of Iraq's Parliament Fouad Massoum says he expects to announce the date of Parliament's first meeting within days. In March, the Shiite supported Iraqiya alliance won more votes than Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki's State of Law coalition. But the Iraqiya did not win a majority of seats. Since then both groups have been seeking support to form and lead a coalition government. Also Sunday, Iraqi police said a bomb explosion in the northern city of Mosul killed 2 people near a medical center. About 20 others were wounded.

Iran has ordered restrictions on 12 fields of study at universities. A top Eduction Ministry official says that universities will not be permitted to open new departments in 12 social sciences. These include human rights and women's studies. He said officials will also change the existing teaching program for the 12 social sciences. Governemnt's studies show that about 2 million of Iran's 3.5 million university students are studying humanities and social sciences. Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has urged officials to make changes to subjects, he says, could lead to religious questioning.

A Canadian detainee at the United States Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay Cuba is to go on trial Monday. Omar Khadr has been held at the Base since he was 15 years old. He is now 24. American military officials accuse him of exploding a bomb that killed an American soldier in battle in Afghanistan in 2002. Mr. Khadr is the last western prisoner at Guantanamo. His lawyers have been trying to get a deal that would permit him to admit guilt and serve out the rest of a prison sentence in Canada. The United States has been criticized about the trial of Omar Khadr because of his age at capture.

NATO says a soldier with its International Security Assistance Force was killed Sunday in an explosion in southern Afghanistan. Also Sunday a joint Afghan-ISAF group fought a rebel attack in the Sangin area of Helmand province. Several rebels were killed.

Afghan ISAF troops in eastern and southern Afghanistan also found and seized weapons.

Israel's Prime Minister is urging Palestinians not to act on their own to form a Palestinian state. Benjamin Netanyahu made the comment at the start of his weekly Cabinet meeting Sunday. He warned that such a method is not realistic. He said Israel is working with the United States on ways to renew the Mideast peace talks. Talks between Israel and the Palestinians stopped when Israel ended a ban on Jewish settlement building in the West Bank. A Palestinian official says there is nothing to discuss as long as Israel continues to expand settlements. Also Sunday, the Palestinian Prime Minister said that Saudi Arabia has promised 1 million dollars to the Palestinian authority to help ease its financial crisis.

Indonesian officials now say 17 people are confirmed dead in the sinking of a boat near the coast of east Nusa Tenggara province. Search teams found 12 more bodies Sunday in waters where the passenger boat sank Friday in rough seas. 5 bodies were recovered earlier. Officials say the boat was carrying 66 people. Fishers helped rescue 44 people, at least 5 are still missing.

A town in Slovenia has elected an immigrant from Ghana as its mayor. Dr. Peter Bossman defeated the town of Piran's current mayor Tomaz Gantar 51 to 48 percent. Dr. Bossman's victory makes him the first black mayor in Slovenia. He told the French News Agency that his election shows the country's high level of democracy. He said he is not what he calls the average Slovenian. Dr. Bossman arrived in Slovenia in the 1970s when it was still part of the former Yugoslavia. He was there to study medicine.

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

Cholera has now killed more than 250 people in Haiti, since the first case of the disease was reported there last week. Yemeni officials say security forces and local tribes have launched a search for hundreds of al-Qaida militants in the country. And a Canadian detainee at the United States Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay Cuba is to go on trial before a military court Monday.
