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!

该帖于2011年8月15日 8:41:00时被版主八月捕蝉推荐为给力好帖!

In Egypt, a judge has temporarily ended the trial of the former interior minister and six deputies accused of ordering the killings of hundreds of protesters. The judge ended the trial after lawyers for the former government officials crowded his desk to present lists of demands. Reuters news agency says the demands include letting the lawyers examine government telephone records and other records to discover who gave the orders to fire at the protesters during the rebellion earlier this year. The judge ordered the trial to restart on September 5th.

In Afghanistan, six suicide bombers have attacked the headquarters of the governor of Parwan province. The attack killed 22 people and wounded 37 others. Governor Abdul Basir Salangi was not hurt in the attack. The Afghan Interior Ministry says the attackers raided the building as a security meeting was taken place. The local police chief and at least two NATO advisors were in attendance. The ministry says the dead includes 16 civilian government employees and six police officers. Taliban rebels say they were responsible for the attack.

Pakistani police say an explosion has killed at least 12 people at a hotel in the town of Dera Allah Yar in Baluchistan province. More than 20 others are injured. The hotel was destroyed by the explosion. Several people are missing and are believed to be trapped in the wreckage. Also in Baluchistan province, police say gunmen on motorcycles killed a local news reporter near his house in the town of Khuzdar. In North Waziristan, suspected militants launched a rocket attack on a military base in Miranshah. Three soldiers died, and at least 23 others were wounded.

Nepalese Prime Minister Jhalanath Khanal has resigned after only three months in office. Mr Khanal of the Unified Marxist Leninist party, presented his resignation to the county's president on Sunday. He is expected to speak to parliament Monday. Parliament elected Mr Khanal in February after 17 elections that did not result in a winner. He said he would step down by August 13 unless there was major progress made on the peace process and political reforms. Maoist lawmakers control most of the seats in parliament, but not enough to govern alone. Lawmakers disagree about a new constitution and about the future of thousands of former Maoist fighters living in camps.

In Somalia, the government has declared emergency conditions in parts of the capital, formerly controlled by the Islamist rebel group, al-Shabab. An order from Somali President Sheik Sharif Sheikh Ahmed bans militias from what he called the "liberated" areas of Mogadishu. The government is trying to exercise control in the former al-Shabab areas to prevent local armed groups from seizing control. Al-Shabab pulled its fighters out of the Somali capital a little more than a week ago.

Briefly here again is the major news of the hour. Security forces in Syria are attacking the port of Latakia from land and sea. Libyan rebels say they have seized control of parts of the militarily important city of Zawiya. And in Afghanistan, six suicide bombers have killed 22 people at the headquarters of Parwan's governor.
