原帖由 大风 于 2008-9-27 09:37 发表   应该还是:IN SOME FLUX,FLUX 有变迁的意识,这里应该是指该提案还存在变数,这与下文的意思吻合。

谢谢两位的帮忙,be in flux有不断变动的意思,这个地方应该是这个没错了。

 

另外,我说这句话很奇怪还有一个原因,主语是the president and both presidential candidates,是复数,谓语动词appear怎么加了s呢?

APPEARS的主语应该是PROPOSAL, The summit 是在PRESIDENT AND BOTH CANDIDATES 展开的。不过这里AS WELL AS 的用法我倒是第一次看到,我在听写时一直不敢相信是AS WELL AS,所以听了很多次.

一直有一个问题困扰:大家是每句都听懂了(或尽量听懂)再写,还是听几个词写几个词?我一直用前一种,但经常会遇到一句听不懂意思,就很难写下来,因为自己都不知道它在讲什么,即使这时甚至基本上每个单词都听出来了,但不敢写下来,因为根本不知道对不对。这样也很费时间。另外,现在不知道大家听写NPR要多常时间?我现在大概需要近两个小时。

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

 

After a summit at the White House today between top congressional leaders, the president and both presidential candidates as well as a proposed 700-billion-dollar financial bailout deal now appears to be in some flux. NPR's Debbie Elliott has more.

 

Congressional negotiators had announced an agreement in principle with the Bush administration the Treasury would get authority to buy bad debt from financial institutions with oversight, curbs on executive pay and foreclosure mitigation. But key Republicans are not on board. After the White House session, Alabama Senator Richard Shelby, the ranking Republican on the banking committee, said it is not a done deal. "That agreement is obviously no agreement." Earlier House Speaker Nancy Pelosi acknowledged that lawmakers are hearing from angry constituents. "Taxpayers are justifiably concerned and vocal about it. They do know, by and large, though, that we must intervene." Debbie Elliott, NPR News, the Capitol.

 

Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama, after today's White House meeting, said despite the disagreement on some aspects, he believes there's a quote "a sense of urgency on the part of everyone that something should be done". In an interview on CNN, Obama said while the sides have made progress, he said there were still items to be worked out. "I think that there is gonna have to be some discussions between the president, Secretary Paulson, House Republicans, perhaps Senate Republicans although they have been, I think, working well with the Senate Democrats, to figure out what exactly they want additionally to see." On the topic of Friday's scheduled presidential debate, Obama said he believes they should go ahead as planned. Republican John McCain has asked for the debate to be postponed until there is agreement on the administration's proposed bailout bill.

 

A top European diplomat says it could take years to resolve the dispute between Russia and Georgia over separatist regions. But he is more hopeful now that Russia would at least let in some outside observers. NPR Michele Kelemen reports.

 

Finnish Foreign Minister Alexander Stubb is the current chairman of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which used to have a few observers on the ground in South Ossetia before the conflict over that breakaway region in August. Stubb has been trying to persuade Russia to allow eight military observers back into South Ossetia, and he said he came away from his talks with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov a bit more hopeful. "But let's be frank, I mean Russia has been in the driving seat in this conflict from the beginning in many ways." The US said it was a mistake for Russia to recognize the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Stubb told NPR he didn't want to play the blame game, and he said it could take many years to negotiate an end to the territorial dispute. Michele Kelemen, NPR News, the United Nations.

 

On Wall Street today, the Dow Jones Industry Average gained 196 points, closing at 11,022. The NASDAQ was up 30 points today. The Standard & Poor's 500 rose 23 points.

 

This is NPR.

 

US military officials are confirming today that Pakistani troops fired on two American reconnaissance helicopters near the Afghan-Pakistan border, and that ground troops then also exchanged fire, while no injuries were reported. The incident comes at a time of heightened tensions with US recently stepping up cross border operations in the area in an effort to flush out al-Qaeda and Taliban troops. A US military spokesman says the helicopters were on routine patrol when they came under small arms fire. The Pakistani military said its troops were only firing warning shots after the helicopters crossed into Pakistani territory.

 

Researchers have found a safer way to make stem cells that could some day be used for therapies. NPR Joe Palca has that story.

 

Scientists have been extremely excited about a new way to make cells that are as promising as human embryonic stem cells for developing treatments for disease, but do not require destroying a human embryo. The technique involves inserting a cocktail of four genes into the cells. Somehow these four genes can convert a normal skin cell into a cell that behaves like an embryonic stem cell. But the technique has a potential problem. The four genes are themselves known to cause cancer. Writing in the Journal of Science, researchers at the Harvard Medical School have found a way to eliminate these genes after the desired stem cells are created. The approach involves infecting the cells with a virus that only turns on the genes temporarily. Stem cells made this way should be safer to put into patients. Joe Palca, NPR News, Washington.

 

Crude oil futures prices ended the session higher. The near month contract for benchmark grade crude was up $2. 29 a barrel today to close at just over 108 dollars a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

由as well as 连接的复合主语并不影响谓语动词的数。例如:

Helen as well as I is eager to see the performance. 海伦和我一样急于要看演出。

I as well as they am ready to help you. 不仅他们愿意帮助你,我也愿意帮助你。

 

After a summit at the White House today between top congressional leaders, the president and both presidential candidates as well as a proposed 700-billion-dollar financial bailout deal now appears to be in some flux.

 

 

所以在这句里做主语的应该是 the president 吧。

 

这样可以解释通。但是主语应该是 the president and both presidential candidates 的。。。

 

也有点不清楚了。。。

我还在,你们在哪里?北星。翩然。芊芊。叶叶。。。。

偶是听几个词写几个词,虽然偶也知道这样不好,但改不掉袅

有的人听得快,正确率低,有的人听得慢,但正确率高,所以没有可比性,要沉住气,听多了自然就快了

谢谢ghance兄,这句话确实比较诡异

谢谢大家的帮助了,完美!就不再COPY一遍了。

整理稿:After a summit at the White House today between top congressional leaders, the president and both presidential candidates as well as a proposed 700-billion-dollar financial bailout deal now appears to be in some flux.

 

我认为:After a summit at the White House today between top congressional leaders, the president and both presidential candidates as well ,a proposed 700-billion-dollar financial bailout deal now appears to be in some flux.

 

Jack Speer把本应和both presidential candidates连在一起的as well读漏了,再补上去的时候,又和后面的a proposed 700 billion dollar financial bailout deal连到了一起

根据NPR的特点,先听清楚段落,搞明白每段都说什么 然后听句子,明白大概。 然后听写,尽可能根据句子。但难处只能听词。 加上查字典的时间,我要花5个小时
