From NPR News in Washington, I'm Jack Speer.

 

Israel reacted with caution today to news Iran tested several missiles during military exercises including larger long-range rockets Iran says are capable of reaching the Jewish state from Jerusalem. NPR's Eric Westervelt reports.

 

In Jerusalem, Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev reacted cautiously, saying Israel seeks neither hostility nor conflict with Iran. But he added we can't ignore Iran's nuclear weapons program and ballistic missile programs, he said, which must be of concern to the entire international community. Iran says its nuclear program is for power generation, not weaponry. Iran's missile test today, according to state-run media, included firing of Shahab-3 missiles, which have a range of more than 1,200 miles, carry a one-ton conventional warhead and are capable of reaching Israel and American bases in Iraq. Israel, last month, reportedly carried out a large-scale military exercise over the Mediterranean involving more than 100 aircraft,  that was widely seen as a show of force, and a training run for any long-range airstrike mission. Eric Westervelt, NPR News, Jerusalem.

 

Government announced today it is reopening a much disputed 35-billion-dollar contract for new air-refueling tankers. The announcement comes after the Government Accountability Office announced that it’d found significant errors in the initial awarding of the contract to a team led by Northrop Grumman. Defense Secretary Robert Gates says the decision to put some aspects of the contract up for re-bid would benefit all sides. "Industry, the Congress and the American people all must have confidence in the integrity of this acquisitions process. I believe the revised process will result in the best tanker for the Air Force at the best price for the American taxpayer.” The GAO, in its evaluation, determined Chicago-based Boeing might have won the contract had mistakes not been made. The Pentagon will now oversee the project instead of the Air Force.

 

Attorney General Michael Mukasey's Justice Department oversight hearing. Senate Democrats complain Mukasey (may) has not done enough to restore the department's credibility and independence. NPR's Ari Shapiro reports.

 

Democrats had hoped that Attorney General Mukasey would aggressively pull the Justice Department back from the scandals of last few years. And so far, Democrats said, they've been disappointed. Joseph Biden of Delaware asked whether Mukasey was aware of politicization at the department. “What did you, the Attorney General, find?” “What I found were enormously dedicated people who were very committed to my succeeding.” “That's not my question. Did you find that some of those enormously dedicated people engaged in politicizing the administration of Justice? That was my question.” “No. Otherwise, I would not characterize them as enormously dedicated.” “Well, that's amazing. So, you disagree with the IG report?” The Inspector General reported that political appointees at the Justice Department made hiring decisions based on partisanship instead of people's qualifications. Ari Shapiro, NPR News, Washington.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 236 points to close at 11,147. The S&P was down 29 points.

The number of people sickened in the Salmonella outbreak has now passed 1,000, making it the worst to hit the country in years. Government food inspectors had initially focused their investigation on tomatoes. However, they now say they're also looking to see whether certain types of hot peppers may be involved. Federal health officials say now it appears some people may have gotten sick after eating raw jalapeno peppers. The Food and Drug Administration earlier this week announced it was broadening its testing of foods,  trying to find the source of the outbreak.

 

The Screen Actors Guild is pondering its next move after members of a smaller union ratified a contract with the Hollywood studios. NPR's Kim Masters has more.

 

The Screen Actors Guild had tried to convince actors to vote against the deal reached by the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists. But AFTRA got support from 62 percent of those voting. That margin was a bit tighter than expected, but still leaves SAG in a difficult situation. The vote demonstrated that SAG would probably fail if it tried to get its members to authorize a strike. SAG is set to respond to the studios’ latest proposal on Thursday. The studios are urging officials in Los Angeles to pressure SAG to accept their offer. Film production slowed sharply as the SAG negotiations dragged on. And the studios said a de facto strike is causing dislocation to the local economy. Kim Masters, NPR News.

 

New York's iconic Chrysler Building has a new owner. The majority stake in the building has been sold to the Abu Dhabi Investment Council. According to a source close to the deal, Prudential Financial sold its 75 percent stake in the building to the sovereign fund yesterday. It's believed the fund paid around 800 million dollars for the Prudential's stake. Tishman Speyer, which manages and controls the building, held the other 25 percent. It's not clear whether that group also sold its share in the building.

From NPR News in Washington, I'm Jack Speer.

 

Israel reacted with caution today to news Iran tested sample missiles during military exercises including larger long-range rockets Iran says are capable of reaching the Jewish state from Jerusalem.

 

NPR's Eric Westervelt reports.

 

"In Jerusalem, Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev reacted cautiously, saying Israel seeks neither hostility nor conflict with Iran. But he added we can't ignore Iran's nuclear weapons program and ballistic missile programs, he said, which must be of concern to the entire international community. Iran says its nuclear program is for power generation not weaponry. Iran's missile test today, according to state-run media, included firing a Shahab-3 missile, which have a range of more than 1200 miles, carry a one-ton conventional warhead, and are capable of reaching Israel and American bases in Iraq. Israel, last month, reportedly carried out a large scale military exercise over the Mediterranean, involving more than 100 aircraft, that was widely seen as a show of force, and a training run for any long-range airstrike mission.

 

 Eric Westervelt, NPR News, Jerusalem.

 

"Government announces today it is reopening a much disputed 35-billion-dollar contract for new air-refueling tankers. The announcement comes after the Government Accountability Office announced that they found significant errors in initial awarding of the contract to a team led by Northrop Grumman. Defense Secretary Robert Gates says the decision puts some aspects of the contract up for re-bid would benifit all sides.

 

"Industry, the Congress and the American people all must have confidence in the integrity of this acquisitions process. I believe the revised process will result in the best tanker for the Air Force at the best price for the American taxpayer. "

 

 The GAO and its evaluation determine Chicago-based Boeing might have won the contract had mistakes not been made. The Pentagon will now oversee the project instead of the Air Force.

 

Attorney General Michael Mukasey's Justice Department oversight hearing sent a Democrat's complained Mukasey may has not done enough to restore the Department's credibility independence. NPR's Ari Shapiro reports.

 

"Democrats hope that Attorney General Mukasey would aggressively pull the Justice Department back from the scandals of last few years. And so far Democrats said, they've been disappointed. Joseph Biden of Delaware asked whether Mukasey was aware of politicization of the Department.

 

 'What did you, the Attorney General. . . ' 'What I found were enormously dedicated people who were very committed to my succeeding. ' 'That's not my question. Did you find that some of those enormously dedicated people engaged in politicizing the Administration of Justice? That was my question. ' 'No. No. Otherwise I would not characterize them as enormously dedicated' 'Well, that's amazing. So you disagree with the IG report? ' The Inspector General reported that political appointees of the Justice Department made higher in decisions based on partisanship instead of people's qualifications. Ari Shapiro, NPR News, Washington.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 236 points to close at 11, 147. The S&P was down 29 points. This is NPR.

The number of people sickened in the Salmonella outbreak has now passed 1, 000, making it the worst to hit the country in years. Government food inspectors had initially focused their investigation on tomatoes. However, they now say they're also looking to see whether certain types of hot peppers may be involved. Federal health officials say now appeared some people may have gotten sick after eating raw jalapeno peppers. The Food and Drug Administration earlier this week announced it was broadening its testing of foods trying to find the source of the outbreak.

a minute to learn, a lifetime to master

LULU sf,

那句话The GAO, in its evaluation, determined Chicago-based Boeing might have won the contract had mistakes not been made.

是什么意思呢,感觉结构理不顺呢,有什么背景么?

"had mistakes not been made"是倒装的虚拟额 至于撒背景的。。还是让你的LULU sf来回答 ——April


had mistakes not been made是虚拟省略if之后的倒装形式这里等同与if mistakes had not been made.类似的还有:We would have gone out had it not rained等于We would have gone out, if it had not rained,虚拟语气的倒装就是把if去掉然后主谓倒一下即可这句话的意思是:如果(在评估招标的过程中)没有出现错误,那么波音很有可能已经赢得了这份合同。


背景么,就是美国需要空中加油机,然后要找公司生产,然后招标,谁获胜谁就能获得价值350亿美元的飞机生产合同。波音也参与了,结果它输给了那个诺斯洛普·格鲁门公司(Northrop Grumman),但是波音不买账啊,说你们评审过程中有很多问题,这合同应该是我们的。然后政府当然也介入调查啦,然后GAO经过调查后同意了波音的观点,也就是那句话,他们也认为如果(在评估招标的过程中)没有出现错误,那么波音很有可能已经赢得了这份合同。-------LULU

口译专员推荐—>口译训练软件IPTAM口译通

我听这句也糊涂,看了版主的解释清楚了。

 

原来这里是省略了连词if的虚拟条件从句。

 

又查了语法书:如果虚拟条件从句中有werehad should,可以把连词if省略,把were,had 或 should这几个词放到主语之前,构成主谓倒装。

 

例如: 1. Should he come (If he should come), tell him to ring me up. 他要是来了,让他给我打个电话。

 

2.Were I you (If I were you), I would not do it. 我要是你,就不做这事。
