8月29号的BBC中:
1.organizational criticism 是相对于individual criticism而言的,是指以公司、组织或机构的立场来批评,而不是以个人的立场,带有个人感情色彩的那种。
2.Silvio Berlusconi has in his sights publications in Spain, France, Britain and here in Italy.

这句话有倒装,正常的结构是 Silvio Berlusconi has

jxzhope 发表于 2009-9-3 09:22
Station 是给大火取的名字名字,就像Typhoon Morakot, Hurricane Katrina
一般是用最初引发火灾的地点取名的,
The Station Fire started off Angeles Crest Highway, about onemile above Angeles Crest Fire Station around 3:30pm Wednesday August26, 2009.

Obama would have to make a public case for it to convince wavering people on both the right and the left.

阅读报纸中经常会看到make a/the  case ,虽能理解,确想不出什么比较好好的中文翻译,不知道大家认为该怎么翻。。。
whatever happens, happens for a reason
Obama would have to make a public case for it to convince wavering people on both the right and the left.

make a/the case 提出理由、事实证明

参考这句翻译:
I was back in Washington as chairman of Chrysler to make the case for government help.
我作为克莱斯勒汽车公司的董事长回到华盛顿去向政府申明求援的理由。

3、The British broadcaster Channel 4 says it’s dropping its ground-breaking reality TV programme Big Brother after next year’s series. 其中Channel 4 究竟是加Big Brother 这个节目还是去掉呢?看drop感觉是去掉,可后文意思是节目很受欢迎呢,不明白了。。

第17的那个wake,博文斑斑的理解我觉得还有点偏差,wake在这里它是一个ceremony,作为名词使用,意思大致类似于中文的“守灵”。麦克米兰字典解释如下:a meeting of friends and relations before or after a funeral to remember the person who has died

因为Kennedy的祖先是Irish,所以大家期望他的这个追悼仪式能够具有典型的爱尔兰风格。我是这么理解的,不对之处请大家指教
