最后一条新闻,Jack Speer简直是在抢时间,读得快,鼻音重,新闻背景又不熟悉。

 

The Jonas Brothers are joining two UK singers, an emerging R&B star and a country act as the Grammys best artist nominees. In the case of the Jonas Brothers, they've already released 2 CDs, but their latest "A Little Bit Longer" was their biggest yet. The teen idols are competing against British female singers Duffy and Adele along with country group Lady Antebellum and singer Jazmine Sullivan.

 

乔纳斯兄弟乐队与两个英国歌手共同获得年度最佳新人提名。他们已经发行过两张唱片,但最新的 A Little Bit Longer 最为成功。这个美国青春偶像乐队在角逐中面临 Duffy,Adele, 以及流行乡村三人组 Lady Antebellum 和歌手的 Jazmine Sullivan 挑战。

 

请问 Duffy,Adele 是否就是前面提到的那两个英国歌手?

从来都是经济类话题,这个问题偶比较喜欢,让偶试试吧

 

不错啦,Duffy和Adele应该就是那两个UK singers

 

但是,偶觉得第一句话翻的不太准,an emerging R&B star 偶觉得是Jazmine Sullivan ("Fearless"),country act是Lady Antebellum,所以第一句话里面中标的一共是五个名额,感觉翻译没说清

底特律三大汽车制造业的巨头(俗称Big Three(底特律三巨头))- 通用(GM)、福特(Ford)、克莱斯勒 Chrysler)。这三大厂家都在汽车城底特律,是美国工业的骄傲,获得这样的称呼也就不足为怪了。至于从何时开始有了这样的称呼,就得慢慢考证了。

draw board

20081204NPRNEWS:

 

Even as the heads of the major auto makers and their union are working feverishly to sell a skeptical Congress on the idea of a 34-billion-dollar aid package, there're signs of pushback on Capitol Hill. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today it stands now what Democratic plan to tap the administration 700-billion-dollar financial bailout plan to fund the rescue effort lacks the votes to pass. However, General Motors President of North America Troy Clarke says in contrast to their last visit to Washington, this time the auto executives have concrete plans for the federal money. "We spent a lot of time and energy, you know, the last two weeks since we were in Washington last, you know, put these plans together, it's a, you know, we are hoping to get favorable reaction, if we don't, we're, we're kind of back to the draw board." All three of the troubled domestic automakers say an auto company bankruptcy would have profound effects on the economy. Hearings are set to begin tomorrow with possible House and Senate votes scheduled for next week.

 

请问划线处怎样理解?什么是 draw board?

to sell a skeptical Congress on the idea of a 34-billion-dollar aid package: 促使持怀疑态度的国会接受34亿美元的一揽子援助方案

 

to tap the administration 700-billion-dollar financial bailout plan to fund :民主党动用7,000亿美元财政救援计划以资助……

 

we are hoping to get favorable reaction, if we don't, we're, we're kind of back to the drawing board: 我们希望得到积极的反响。如果得不到,就回去修改方案。

 

这样理解就八九不离十了吧。

The expression "Back to the drawing board" is used when a plan or course of action is unsuccessful and needs to be changed, often drastically;

 

e.g., "The battle plan, the result of months of conferences, failed because the enemy retreated too far back. It was back to the drawing board for the army captains."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said today it stands now what Democratic plan to tap the administration 700-billion-dollar financial bailout plan to fund the rescue effort lacks the votes to pass.

what 在句子里面指代的什么?总觉得这个句子有点怪,what到底是哪个词的宾语呢?
