VAN ALLEN 站长对WORLD NEWS的评论
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!

Libyan rebels from the country’s east have moved quickly toward the government held areas in the west. The recaptured several towns with the help of international coalition airstrikes on pro-government troops. The rebels took control of the eastern town of Bin Jawad and said they would move on to the central city of Sirte. Some people who live in Sirte began fleeing the city. Two explosions were heard in the area Sunday night. It’s not clear whether the explosions happened in the city or nearby. On the way to Bin Jawad, Libyan rebels recaptured the oil ports of Ras Lanuf and Brega from government forces Sunday. The recapture of the oil ports puts rebels back in control of major oil centers that export much of Libya’s oil.

In Yemen, security officials say Islamic militants have control of southern town of Jaar in Abyan province. The Islamist fighters captured a weapon factory and government buildings Saturday. Yemeni officials say government troops attacked the town Sunday and the soldier was killed. Also Sunday 6 Yemeni soldiers were killed in an attack in the central province of Marib. Officials say they suspect al-Qaida gunmen. Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh has faced daily protests calling for his resignation after 32 years in power. On Sunday, Mr. Saleh said opposition groups are trying to destroy the ruling party. Earlier he told Al-Arabiya television that he would leave office if his opponents guarantee that he can do so with respect. He said he would remain the leader of his party even if he resigns. And he said he would stay in Yemen.

Syria says 12 people died during two days of violence in the town of Latakia. The deaths happened after army units were deplored to the Mediterranean seaside port town. The units were sent there after more than a week of anti-government protests that spread to other cities and towns on Friday. Also Sunday, an aid to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said emergency rule will be ended soon. But he did not say when. Emergency rule has been in effect since the Baath Party came to power in 1963.

The company that operates the damaged Fukushima nuclear power center in Japan has corrected an earlier report on radiation levels there. The operator says the radiation levels are 100,000 times higher than normal. That is much lower than was reported earlier Sunday. The new readings were made just hours after reports that radiation in water inside one building was 10 million times normal levels. Emergency workers left the building then. The emergency workers have been working under extreme conditions as they attempt to restart cooling systems. Also Sunday, officials said they found high levels of radioactive iodine in Pacific Ocean water within 300 meters of the power center. Japan’s nuclear safety agency said they believe there is no threat to sea life or sea food. The ocean water is the newest evidence that radiation from the nuclear center is spreading.
