Standard 版块Q&A

提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

关于labor Day

昨天的NPRNEWS中有“Asked about Senator John McCain's proposal for a gas tax holiday between  memorial Day and Labor Day, Mr. Bush said he was open to discussing any ideas, but declined to endorse the proposal.”

 

这里的Memorial Day Memorial Day是美国的阵亡战士的纪念日(每州不同, 一般5月30日),而Labor Day是美国的劳动节,每年9月的第一个星期一。

 

祝普友五一劳动节快乐!

关于修辞

昨天的NPRNEWS:

Crowds heckled and jostled activists, some of whom had to be taken away by police for their own safety.

 

今天的NPRNEWS:

Dozens of homes have been damaged or destroyed.

 

今天读Nature Feb.20,2008中:

A globally coordinated strategy is required to spot and stop outbreaks before they can spead across the world.

 

请问这是不是一种修辞方法?请指教。

有点压头韵或是尾韵(即首部发音或是尾部发音一致)的意思在里面……

heckled and jostled       尾韵

damaged or destroyed  头韵或是尾韵

spot and stop              头韵

limestone cross Sulzer

今天的NPRNEWS(20080512):

 

The president and bride shared their father-daughter dance to the ballad You are so beautiful performed by Nashville band, the Tyrone Smith Revue, in an outdoor reception following the sunset ceremony at a 1600-acre ranch. The couple exchanged vows in front of a four-foot high limestone cross Sulzer. The 26-year-old bride wore Oscar de la Renta gown adorned with organza, beading and embroidery. Jenna's twin sister Barbara was the maid of honor. The wedding was not open to the press. However, the White House says it may issue a photo of the event later today. The couple met during president Bush's 2004 reelection campaign. The 30-year-old Hager is a native of Richardman, Virginia and the son of prominent Virginia Republican John Hager. For NPR News, I am Michael Hagerty in Waco, Texas.

 

 

您好,那个其实是cross altar。点击请看NPR每日小讲座,首席顾问LULU已经解答了您的疑惑

 

背景中是不是a four-foot high limestone cross Sulzer?

各位前辈好!这个论坛的资源真是丰富,但是我现在不太清楚我现有的水平适合从哪个板块听起。 我已过英语六级,考研英语初试50多分。以前我在这个网上就只听不练(我比较喜欢听NPR NEWS,但是只能听懂一些~),有一些熏陶,但是正式的训练一直无从下手。请各位前辈指点。不胜感激!

今天BBC Local police, as well as federal riot police, distinctive in their blue battle fatigues. 这一句中blue battle fatigues 什么意思俄?

回复 145# 的帖子

fatigues [pl] (US) uniform worn for fatigue duty or when in battle (做杂务或打仗时穿的)制服. So it make sense here~the police are distinctive cos they're wearing their blue battle uniform.
Last week Mehud ordered his fighters to stop attacking Pakistani forces as reports surfaced the government had begun negotiating a 15-point peace agreement with his group. 请问各位大虾这句话as后面是什么意思啊?

回复 147# 的帖子

suface: appear again after a period of remaining unseen, hidden, away from others, etc

 

negotiate: To confer with another or others in order to come to terms or reach an agreement

 

15-point peace aggreement:an aggreement signed between the Mehsud tribe of South Waziristan and the local political administration

 

So the paraphrase:

 

...as reports appear again (that) the the local political government had started to confer on a 15-point peace agreement with the Mehsud tribe of South Waziristan .

 

done~
