我们勤劳的会员“哈哈泰”于2012年3月10日发布了关于这篇文章的精华帖子,全文如下:

  1. It is VOA Special English and Christopher Crews reporting from Washington.
  2. Greece says over 85% of the country's private lenders have agreed on a deal to help cancel 2973042 billion in debt. The deal will also help Greece to make debt payments and avoid financial failure. The Greek government plans to use legal methods to force the remaining leaders to sign on to the agreement. The chief economist for help in Greece says the deal will aid the growth of banks in the country's economy. International monetary fund director Christine Legault called the deal an important step toward reducing Greece's financing needs. "It's look likes things and it looks numbers will be promising and what we designed negotiated holiday enough and months ago is probably going to come through overnight". Mrs. Legault welcome the cooperation of private industry in helping to put Greece on the path of growth.
  3. Job growth in the United States increased in February faster than economists predicted. The Labor Department says American businesses added 227,000 new workers last month. It also said the economy added 284,000 jobs in January. Last month, the official unemployment rate was 8.3%, the same rate as in January. Until February, jobless rate had fallen for five straight months. But *, an economics scholar at the American Enterprise Institute says the job situation is worse than the numbers report. "If you include all of those people who are unemployed, the number like 14.8% to be". Ms. * says 8 million people want full-time work that can find only part-time jobs. Another 1 million out of work people have given up looking for work, because they believe there is no work available for them. The unemployment rate in the United States is seen as a measure of the health of the nation's economy. The unemployment rate has historically averaged around 5%, but it reached 10% in October 2009. As of last month, the unemployment rate in the United States was 8.3%. Rates for other countries have been recorded by the European Union and the Central Intelligence Agency. They include Vietnam at 2.9%, China at 4.3%, and Germany at 5.8%. The unemployment rate in Greece is 20.9%. Haiti has the highest jobless rate reported almost 41%.
  4. The former head of the United Nations will meet Syria's president Bushare al Assad. Kofi Annan will meet with the Syrian leader in Damascus Saturday. Mr. Annan is going to the meeting as the new UN Arab League representative to Syria. He is attempting to end the ongoing violence in Syria. He has been calling for a political solution to the crisis and he says trying to give weapons to the rebel forces will only worsen the situation.
  5. You are listening to the news in VOA Special English from Washington.
  6. The United States has agreed to give control of its main military detention center in Afghanistan to Afghan officials. American General John Allen and Afghan Defense Minister Gen. Abdul Rahim Moore signed a letter of understanding Friday. Under the agreement, the Afghan government will take control of the prison in the Harlem province and its 3000 detainees within six months. General Allen is the top American commander in Afghanistan. He said the agreement is an important step forward. And General * called the agreement an important step in recognizing the independence of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
  7. Thousands of Italian protesters gathered in the center of Rome on Friday to demonstrate against government budget reductions and reforms. The protesters are angry about labor reforms planned by Prime Minister Mario Monti. The reformers are part of new financial measures to pay Italy's debt and improve the country's financial condition. Mr. Monti claims that reforming the labor market will increase the economy. But critics say his plan will worsen the economy, especially for the middle class.
  8. The aid group Oxfam says 13 million people are at severe risk from a food crisis in the Sahara area of Africa. The group has launched an emergency appeal to help the 1 million people most at risk. Oxfam said Friday it hopes to collect $37 million in donations. The group warned that if the international community does not act now, the situation in the Sahara could be similar to the family in East Africa last year.
  9. And finally at this hour, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has presented awards to three organizations working to empower women and girls in India, Kenya, and Tanzania. The three organizations are * and *. Each group will receive $500,000 in prize money. That money is coming from a private group the Rockefeller Foundation. Sec. Clinton said the award was established to support the most creative thinkers and committed activists.
  10. And now briefly here again is the major news of the hour in VOA Special English. Greece says over 85% of the country's private lenders have agreed on a deal that will help the country to make debt payments and avoid financial failure. Job growth in the United States increased in February faster than economists predicted. And the former head of the United Nations Kofi Annan will meet with Syrian president in Damascus Saturday.
