提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
Homework:

Good afternoon. I'm Naamua Delaney at the CNN Center in Atlanta. Here's a look at what's happening NOW IN THE NEWS.

President Bush is sending Congress the biggest budget in US history, a 3.1-trillion-dollar plan. The proposal would support increases in military spending while squeezing most government programmes outside of national security. The budget projects deficites more than 400 billion dollars for each of the next two years, but predicts a balanced budget by 2012. Democrats say the forecast is based on faulty math that included only 70 billion dollars for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2009.

A suicide attack in Israel today is the first one fear in a year. Police say the bomber killed one person and wounded eleven others at the shopping mall in southern Israel. Israeli police shot and killed a second potential bomber. A militant spokesman says the two bombers entered Israel through Egypt after fleeing across the breached Rafah border crossing which has now been sealed. Hours later, Israel carried out an airstrike north of Gaza's city. Palestinian medical sources say a senior militant was killed.

The US Geological Survey says a powerful 6.3-magnitude earthquake has hit Chile. It struck the northern part of the country, near its border with Bolivia and Peru. In November, a 7.7 magnitiude earthquake hit the same region. The next day, three large aftershocks destroyed thousands of homes.

There's been a shooting at a high shcool in Memphis. Police say one student was shot. That student's injuries are described as not life threatening. The shcool is still on locked down, but one male student is in custody. There is no word yet on why it happened.

New York Yankee's pitcher Andy Pettitte is talking to House Committee lawyers again today to explain what he knows about steroids in baseball. It's part of his perparation for a public hearing set for next week. That's when he may talk about findings in the Mitchell's report on drug use in baseball. Two days after that report was released, Pettitte admitted he took Human Growth Hormone for two days in 2002 to deal with an elbow injury.

Well, those are the headlines at this hour. Stay with CNN for more on these stories and the other news of the day.
Better know two words exactly than three vaguely!
