个人觉得,应该不是in吧:
1, 000 dollars a plate or 2, 300 dollars for entrance and a McCain '08 lapel pin

$1000: 吃顿饭
$2300: 吃饭+赠送一个lapel pin

当然lapel pin本身是不值这个额外的1300刀的。只是一个给捐款人的象征性的纪念品。

derek讲的基本就是了。

18million是希拉里在民主党初选中得到的总选票数。
glass ceiling 美国人常用来形容女性在职场受到的无形的阻力,虽然看不见但确实存在。

而这个玻璃天花板上1800W个裂缝的讲法,是Hillary Clinton在初选失利后的致谢演讲中提到的。
 虽然她没有最终顶破这个“天花板”,但是感谢她所有的支持者,已经在天花板上撞出了1800W个裂缝!

youtube上的Hillary那次演讲的视频:

原帖由 北星束 于 2008-9-13 00:30 发表 今天的BBC 碰到了一个inclusive government, Against the odds, a deal on an inclusive government has been reached after 7 weeks of hard negotiation.   想来想去,觉得意思跟coalition government很像 ...



应该是有不同意思的。
coaltion government:只是因为单一政党无法形成多数,所以联合二个以上政党组成政府。
inclusive 相比较而言更加广泛,意指包含所有党团和利益方。



看看BBC在04年的一条卡尔扎伊的新闻:
Karzai pledges new government style


Hamid Karzai speaks to the BBC's Persian and Pashto services

Afghanistan's transitional president, Hamid Karzai, has pledged inclusive government if elected in polls this weekend.(卡尔扎伊称,若当选,将要组建一个inclusive government)

In a forum for the BBC's Pashto and Persian services, Mr Karzai told listeners he wanted to get away from the coalition-style administration of the last three years which "had not got anywhere".(他说他要摆脱过去那种coalition式的体制)

"I want to build a government which reflects the whole Afghan people," he said.

The forum was the latest in a series of interactive BBC debates on radio and online in recent weeks in which all 17 of Mr Karzai's opponents have appeared.

Question and answer sessions featuring prominent candidates such as Younis Qanuni, Rashid Dostum, Masooda Jalal and Mohammed Mohaqiq attracted thousands of responses from listeners and web users.


'Powerful nation'

Mr Karzai said that if people voted for him, his government "would have one clear policy".

"I want a government in which the participation of the whole nation is tangible."

He also told listeners that Afghanistan was becoming a "powerful nation" and said the country's many armed militias and warlords "should not take affairs into their own hands" and endanger the process.

"People respect them... but nobody should claim to be the commanders of mujahideen anymore," he said.

"Afghanistan should have a national army and a national police force and also national institutions who work in various social and political fields, but within the framework of the law."

"The feudalist system of government in every street of Afghanistan has been the cause of miseries for the Afghan people and the nation does not tolerate this sort of dominance."


Improving economy

Mr Karzai cited action against corruption and improving the country's economy as two of his key election concerns, although he acknowledged it would take years for changes to be implemented.

"Our currency is one of the most stable ones in the region but we have had problems with corruption and there are three reasons for that," he said.(他说:我们国家腐败现象,有三个原因)

"One is we have been run by a coalition government and connections overtook regulations(其中一个原因就是:掌控国家的是一个coaltion government) - this is one of the reasons that I am against a similar structure for the future government of Afghanistan.

"Also, we started with a non-existent bureaucratic system and it takes a long time for a healthy one to be put in place," he added.

"Thirdly, in a short span of time a lot of money was poured into Afghanistan and it is natural that when an impoverished country becomes relatively rich in a short time corruption and fraud happens."


Women leadership

Mr Karzai said he was glad that all the presidential candidates had run clean campaigns.

"So far, the presidential candidates have not been too harsh to each other and I am very pleased about this," he said.

Presidential candidate Masooda Jalal

"In my view, here in Afghanistan each and every candidate has tried to look more nationalist than the next guy, which in effect has brought the people together more than before."

The BBC's Persian and Pashto services also spoke to other candidates in the Afghan elections.

Masooda Jalal, the only female candidate, took part in an discussion with young Afghans in Kabul.

She said there were many instances of women leadership in the Islamic world, and that Muslim scholars had told her that her candidacy did not contradict Islamic teachings.

Mohammad Mohaqeq, a leader of the minority Shia Hazaras, said he was running for president in order to serve his country in its reconstruction era.

He said if he did not win, he would co-operate with any elected government. He said promoting national understanding, co-operation and trust was essential if security was to improve.

原帖由 cxc-谈笑一生 于 2008-9-15 17:09 发表 12日的NPR一段讲津巴布韦的,这样说:We won't know till Monday whether President Mugabe retains all his authority-that would be unlikely since the opposition has signed on to the Zimbabwe settlement. ...


媒体当时只知道双方达成了协议,但是不知道协议的具体内容。
只是根据“双方已经达成协议”这个事实推测,两派肯定都有所让步和得利。
所以,媒体认为Mugabe不太可能独占权利,否则反对派肯定是不愿意在协议上签字画押的。

Halliburton应该是泛指Halliburton此类的巨头公司,而不是特指一家公司。

问个有点跑题的问题:
一个人练口语有什么好方法么? 主要工作了天天对着电脑,而且是在日企,更没有这样的语言环境 ~~
现在感觉听听还可以,要说一起来还是很糟糕。
大家有类似经验或者什么好的心得吗?

有谁知道在现在的系统里怎么用draft吗?
手动改稿太麻烦了。

好像需要把draft生成的代码,把其中的COLOR改成小写的color即可

这么多color 改过来也够呛了,这样改稿太耗时间和精力
不过还是很感谢~
jyb061 发表于 2009-5-6 14:01
WORD里面CTRL+F可以全局替换。
不过如果能找到draft的原作者,重新编译一个新版本的draft出来就更好了
