From NPR News in Washington, I'm Lakshmi Singh.

The death toll is rising in Haiti. As NPR's Corey Flintoff reports from Port-au-Prince, the Haitian government confirms at least 150,000 people have died since the earthquake struck nearly two weeks ago.

That grim assessment came from Haiti's communications director who said it's based on reports from around the capital city. Haitian officials say they believe there are thousands more dead under the rubble of fallen buildings and in surrounding communities. Aid is beginning to reach some of the more than two million people left homeless by the quake, though many survivors complain that supplies of water and food are reaching them much too slowly. The World Food Program estimates that at least two-thirds of the survivor camps have received at least some aid. And volunteer doctors at hospitals around the city say they are still receiving patients with bone fractures and serious infections 12 days after the earthquake struck. Corey Flintoff, NPR News, Port-au-Prince.

Meanwhile, donations are still being counted from Friday's star-studded telethon for earthquake victims. Organizers say that so far they have raised at least 57 million dollars.

A new tape reported to be from Osama bin Laden is out. On it, the speaker takes credit for the attempted bombing of a US airliner on Christmas Day. NPR's Ofeibea Quist-Arcton reports.

The recording said to be Osama bin Laden but which cannot be independently confirmed, praises the Nigerian suspect Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as a heroic warrior. The tape warned of more attacks against the United States. Twenty-three-year-old Abdulmutallab stands accused of trying to blow up Northwest Flight 253 as it approached Detroit from Amsterdam on December 25th. Abdulmutallab told federal agents who questioned him shortly after the explosives he wore in his underwear failed to detonate that he was trained and instructed by al-Qaeda in Yemen. The Arabic al-Jazeera news channel aired the recording. Ofeibea Quist-Arcton, NPR News, Abuja.

Afghanistan's parliamentary election is being pushed back from May to September. Officials say they still don't have enough international funding to pay for the vote. They are also citing security concerns. The Obama administration is urging Afghan President Hamid Karzai to take advantage of the delay in parliamentary elections to reform the electoral process and to win back the confidence of Afghan voters.

jjmm 发表于 2010-1-25 19:57

 

 

My opinion is that even without the voice and it's only a choice between "alleged" and "slated", one can only choose the latter. Because Mexico has been designated as the host country for the next climate meeting, it's not sth "alleged". So in terms of meaning, "alleged" is not qualified and quite inappropriate in this context. "Slated" is appropriate since it means "designated" Apart from that, I insist that the presenter speaks exactly "slated" rather than "alleged". Looking forward  to your opinion...

I agree with you in that the meaning of "slate" appears to be more suitable in this context. As it is a fact that Mexico was chosen to be the host for next conference.
It is just that, the sound of the word is more like "alleged" than "slated" to my ears.
The word "alleged" seems to be somewhat improper here, of which I just became more awared when your correction was given.

Well, we maybe need to wait and see the other putters' opinion.
