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!

It is zero hour thirty Universal Time and here is the news in Special English.

Engineers in Japan are using chemicals, sawdust and torn newspaper to stop radioactive water leaking from the Fukushima Daiichi Power Station. It was severely damaged in a huge earthquake and tsunami March eleventh. The engineers are trying to stop the radioactive water from leaking into the Pacific Ocean. Saturday, workers at the station found a hole in the station from which the water appeared to be leaking. They tried to close the hole first with concrete and later with a liquid plastic material. But a spokesman for the Tokyo Electric Power Company says there has been no change in radiation levels in the coastal waters near the station. Japanese officials say it could take months to stop radiation leaking into the ocean. Also Sunday, TEPCO officials said the remains of two workers killed in the tsunami have been found at the station.

A strong earthquake has shaken the southern port of Java, Indonesia’s main island. Officials released a tsunami warning briefly. Hundreds of people in the town of Cilacap fled for higher ground after the quake. There are no reports of injuries or damage. American scientists say the earthquake was centered three hundred eighteen kilometers from Java. They say it began twenty-four meters below the sea floor. The American experts measured the earthquake at six point seven in magnitude. Indian experts recorded it at just over seven.
[→2:28]

French forces in Ivory Coast have taken control of the airport in Abidjan. French troops are using the airport to remove foreigners who are fleeing the country. Three hundred more troops are also expected to fly into the city to help United Nations peacekeeping forces in Ivory Coast. Forces loyal to the internationally recognized leader Alassane Ouattara have taken control of much of the country in the past week. They appear set to oust President Laurent Gbagbo. Mister Ouattara defeated Mister Gbagbo in the presidential election in November. However, the President has refused to leave office. Some troops loyal to Mister Gbagbo have surrendered to the UN. Others have fled to Ghana. The international community is calling on fighters from both sides to avoid attacks on civilians.
[→3:37]

Nigeria has postponed national elections after canceling a vote on Saturday. Officials announced a new voting time line Sunday. Nigerians are to choose lawmakers on April ninth, then vote for president on April sixteenth and state governors on April twenty-sixth. The Saturday election was cancelled as voters stood in line. Officials announced then that the election would take place Monday. But in a statement Sunday, the election chairman said political groups wanted a further delay. The delays have caused anger across the country. Nigerian officials blamed the delay on supply companies who failed to get ballots to voting stations on time. Elections four years ago were marked by violence, cheating and disorganization.
[→4:49]

Citizens in Kazakhstan voted Sunday in a presidential election. President Nursultan Nazarbayev is widely expected to win reelection. Then seventy-year old leader's term is to end in twenty-twelve. But he called for an early presidential election Saturday. He had earlier rejected a proposed national vote that would have extended his rule until twenty-twenty. The government will release the election results Monday. Mister Nazarbayev has ruled Kazakhstan since it was a part of the Soviet Union. The main opposition leaders in Kazakhstan called for voters to boycott this election. They said there had not been enough time to organize a full election campaign.
[→5:56]

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has appointed former Agriculture Minister Adel Safar as the new Prime Minister and asked him to form a new cabinet. Mister Safar is a member of the ruling Baath Party. His appointment comes as thousands attended the funerals of eight protesters killed on Friday. Human Rights groups say at least sixty people have been killed since the demonstrations for reforms began. Mister Safar worked at Damascus University until he was named to the cabinet that resigned that week. The Syrian President has called for reform including the creation of committee to study ending Syria's unpopular emergency law.
[→6:59]

Emergency officials in Pakistan say two bomb explosions have killed forty-one people. More than seventy others are wounded. The explosions happened near a Sufi Muslim holy place in the Dera Ghazi Khan area of Punjab province. Officials say they believe two suicide attackers exploded their bombs while in a crowd of people. Thousands of people had gathered there for a religious ceremony when the attack took place. Police say they have arrested two suspects. The Taliban has claimed responsibility.
[→7:54]

Officials in southern Afghanistan say two more people were killed Sunday during a third day of protests against the burning of a Koran. At least twenty others were wounded. Most of the injuries happened in Kandahar when a container of gas exploded. Hundreds of demonstrators were in the streets at the time. There was also a protest in the eastern city of Jalalabad. A Christian clergyman in the American state of Florida burnt the Koran on March twentieth. The top commander of international forces in Afghanistan has condemned Terry Jones' act. General David Petraeus also offered his sympathies to the families of those hurt and killed in the protests. The civilian representative of NATO made similar statements.
[→9:09]

And now briefly, here again is the major news of the hour in Special English.
Engineers in Japan are using chemicals, sawdust and torn newspaper to stop radioactive water leaking from the Fukushima Daiichi Power Station.
Greek officials say they have received a message that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi says he wants an end to the fighting in Libya.
And in Ivory Coast, French forces have taken control of the airport in Abidjan.
That's the news in VOA Special English from Washington.
