提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!

on wukeyu123:

 

1. Crews in Iowa have been ordered to abandon a half-mile-long wall of dirt and sandbags because they're worried it's about to break. The wall was built after the Des Moines River punched a 100-foot wide hole in a levee, allowing water to pour into a portion of downtown.

 

2. Washington D.C. is remembering / longtime newsman Tim Russert. At the Newseum, exhibits highlight the political analyst. And at / NBC, flowers serve as a makeshift memorial for the network's bureau chief. Russert died of a heart attack yesterday. He was 58. 

 

3. It's been less than a month since the US declared polar bears a threatened species. But now the Bush administration's giving seven oil companies permission to potentially harm them while looking for oil and natural gas. The Fish and Wildlife Service issued regulations providing legal protection.

 

4. NASA is congratulating the space shuttle crew/ on a "beautiful landing" . Discovery glided back to Earth after a fourteen-day trip that NASA says / was about as smooth as it gets. The shuttle delivered a billion-dollar/ science lab to the International Space Station. 

 

Something about Newseum:

 

   Newseum 是世界上第一家交互式新闻博物馆的网站,newseum 是 News 和 Museum 的组合。大家可能在很多人的blog上都看到过一张报纸缩印似的图片,链接就是指向这里的。

   Newseum 1997年建立,馆址位于弗吉尼亚的阿灵顿。创立Newseum的目标很简单:帮助公众与新闻媒体更好的相互了解。几年来,Newseum吸引了200多万访问者,人们在浏览中得到乐趣,并且了解了很多新闻背后的故事。今天,一个更大,更雄心勃勃的Newseum正在建设中,新址位于华盛顿宾夕法尼亚大道,在白宫与国会大厦之间,新建筑耗资4亿美元,将拥有更多的展项与影像资料。(N年前的资料了,这会儿应该建好了 )

   在Newseum网站上,可以读到250多家美国或其他国家的报纸的头版,当然,仅仅是头版,不会是全部内容哈。考虑到报纸媒体的特点,浏览头版已经可以获得相当有代表意义的信息了,特别是在同一天同时浏览这么多报纸的头条,做做对比是很有意思的,所有的头版都有PDF可以下载,全尺寸全色彩的文档读起来很有感觉。除了报纸外,Newseum网站还有其他不少栏目,比如普利策奖获奖照片展,战争故事,世纪记录等等,资源很丰富。
