President Obama is expected to lay out guidelines this morning to overhaul earmarks. Those are the pet projects attach to spending bills. That announcement comes one day after the Senate passed the spending bill to keep the government operating this year. That bill contains thousands of earmarks. White House official say Mr. Obama will sign the bill to keep key government agencies' funding. 

 

奥巴马总统预计在今天早晨公布审查专项拨款的指导方针。这些国会感兴趣专项拨款计划是国会议员附加到开支法案中的。此事是在参议院通过维持政府今年运转的开支法案一天之后宣布的。这个开支法案包括数千个专项拨款项目。白宫官员说,奥巴马将签署该法案以维持重要政府机构运转所需资金。

 

这里可能有两个难点影响理解:

 

1.pet projects 国会感兴趣的拨款计划

 

2.earmark  n. funding sought by lawmakers for favored projects 国会指定用途的专门拨款,也称作 Political pork barrel——国会为选民所争取得到的地方建设经费,其中好多是某些议员为本地争取的专项投资(选民投票选他,他就得为本地选民谋利益)。所以Obama说, it is time for Congress and the White House to embrace a new set of guiding principles.

 

请指教。

请问voa0312中
unidentified men in another vehicle pulled up alongside his car and opened fire.

这一连串的动作用中文怎么说?

谢谢!

另一辆车中身份不明的人,在他的车旁边停下并开火。

 

When a vehicle or driver pulls up, the vehicle slows down and stops.

When things do not go your way, God has a plan for you.
想问一下spree这个词在中文中是什么意思?
比如VOA0312 中的shooting spree,I&a中的buying spree.

字典上的解释是
a short period of time when you do a lot of one activity, especially spending money or drinking alcohol。

谢谢!

正如字典所解释的 shooting spree疯狂射杀,buying spree购物狂潮,或收购狂潮

同意斑竹的意见。将听写中的重点难点句子拿出来讨论很好。但有许多是因为听写有错才影响了理解。确实应当将原文先搞清楚。否则难免以讹传讹。

 

以这次讨论的这条CNN的新闻为例:

 

President Obama is expected to lay out guidelines this morning to overhaul earmarks. Those are the pet projects lawmakers attach to spending bills. That announcement comes one day after the Senate passed the spending bill to keep the government operating this year. That bill contains thousands of earmarks. White House official say Mr. Obama will sign the bill to keep key government agencies' funding.

 

这位普友的稿子是:President Obama is expected to lay out guidelines this morning to overhaul earmarks those of the pet projects lawmakers attached to spending bils. That announcement comes one day as to the Senate pass the spending bill if the government operating this year. That bill contains thousands of earmarks. White House official say Mr. Obama will sign the bill to keep key government agency's funding.

 

翩然斑竹可能注意到了:我前面的1339#参考译文回帖是改了错之后才译的。

2. His call comes after South Korea said North Korea must immediately withdraw an implicit threat it made this week to civilian airliners

3. North Korea must immediately move to ease worries it has caused about regional air travel

4. South Korea's two main airlines, Korean Air and Asiana have rerouted flights out of North Korean airspace as a precaution

5. In the end, those in favor won out and formal contacts within the Russia-NATO Council are to resume and a ministerial level meeting was announced as likely in the coming months

6. Clinton also noted many areas of common ground between the United States and NATO and Russia, including cooperation on Afghanistan, working together to combat terrorism, narcotics trafficking and piracy.

7, It will be extremely challenging for the remaining humanitarian organizations and the government of Sudan to fill the operating gap, as we do not see how these gaps can be fully covered.

8. Zimbabwe's Supreme Court has ordered that a senior opposition official be kept in custody until a date is set for his trial on terrorism and weapons charges. On Tuesday a high court judge ordered that Roy Bennett be released on bail. But the Supreme Court granted a state appeal and reversed that order before Bennett could be freed.

    红色部分为不懂的。

    辛苦啦。
