Standard 版块Q&A

提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
斑斑好,我想请问一下,普特的BBC standard和special English 都是在哪下载的呢?我现在天天看BBC的新闻,然后再听普特的听力,发现为什么对不上来呢?BBCTV NEWS是每个小时一报,我想请问下我们听的BBC headline什么的普特大侠们是怎么下载下来的 而得以惠及广大听众?
BBC和NPR听多了发现都是政治经济题材,想听点其他方面的应该听什么材料?

thx~, 这样就说的通了,但字典里spike没有这样的含义,是这个词本来就有这个含义,还是猜测引申的呢?

这是20110212NPRNEWS的一条新闻:

The US trade deficit is widening. The Commerce Department said today the gap increased nearly 6% to 40.6 billion dollars in December. Analysts say it grew because the 2.6% gain in imports outpaced exports which saw an increase of under 2%, more like 1.8%. The deficit in December capped a year in which the US trade gap widened by the largest amount in ten years.

柯林斯字典给出如下解释:
If someone says that a good or bad event caps a series of events, they mean it is the final event in the series, and the other events were also good or bad. (JOURNALISM)
The unrest capped a weekend of right-wing attacks on foreigners.

中文可以理解为:以。。。而告终(结束)
When things do not go your way, God has a plan for you.

AU news 20110226的第一段中
The coal industry says mines will close and jobs will be lost if it doesn't get appropriate government assistance under a carbon tax. 。。。。The Coal Association says the industry would struggle if that happens under the new scheme.
上面两句话都是一样虚拟语气(或是同一类条件句),第一句好理解,但第二句的“would”不好理解,因为主句的谓语是“says”,如果是情态动词,但查了语法书,在这里情态动词只能用“can/could, may/might,should/ought to, must,没有would。不解,请指教。
