President Bush today told reporters in the White House Rose Garden that recent actions by Russia against the former Soviet Republic of Georgia represent a dramatic and brutal escalation of violence. And just back from the Beijing Olympics, the president pressed Moscow to accept an immediate cease-fire and pull back its troops. "Russia's government must respect Georgia's territorial integrity and sovereignty. The Russian government must reverse the course it appears to be on and accept this peace agreement as a first step toward resolving this conflict. " Fighting comes on the heels of a Georgian offensive that began last week to try and regain control of the restive province of South Ossetia. Mikheil Saakashvili, President of the former Soviet Republic, says Russian forces have captured several towns, a military base and a main highway near the central city of Gori, essentially, cutting the country in half.


John McCain meanwhile is stepping up his criticism of Russia. From member station WITF in Harrisburg, Scott Detrow reports.

 

McCain's calling for an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council and the G-7 to address the crisis, though he says the United States shouldn't get involved militarily. The Arizona senator says he'd send Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Russia to mediate. McCain says he's suspicious of Russia's motives. "I think it's very clear that Russian ambitions are to restore the old Russian Empire, not the Soviet Union but the Russian Empire which means a near abroad, which means you have great influence or control over surrounding countries. " The presumptive Republican presidential nominee says it's clear Vladimir Putin is still calling the shots in Russia, despite handing over the presidency to Dimtry Medvedev earlier this year.

Federal agents descended on New Orleans housing organization hired by the city to clean up some of the damage from Hurricane Katrina today. The raid was part of a broader fraud investigation into New Orleans Affordable Housing Corporation. NPR's Dina Temple-Raston reports.

 

FBI and IRS officials arrived at the New Orleans Affordable Homeownership Corp or NOAH with a subpoena related to a broader fraud investigation. At issue is whether the non-profit company billed the city for work that was never performed. According to officials familiar with the probe, NOAH was supposed to help low-income and elderly victims of Hurricane Katrina. Under its agreement with the city, NOAH was supposed to hire contractors to demolish or gut homes ravaged by the hurricane. Investigators have found among other things, that homes that were supposed to have been destroyed were still standing. A federal grand jury authorized federal agents to collect documents related to the non-profit company's finances and its client files. Dina Temple-Raston, NPR News.

In results from the Beijing Olympics, some major comebacks to report, one that helped swimmer Michael Phelps capture his second gold medal of the Games, and the other that prevented American Katie Hoff from getting the gold. The 100-meter relay by Jason Lezak and the men's 400-meter freestyle which Phelps swam the lead helped the US team take the gold medal from the French. It marked the second gold medal for Phelps at this year's Games. Hoff who led in the final turn of the women's 400 freestyle was defeated however by Rebecca Adlington of Britain. This year's Olympics are shaping up to be perhaps the most live ever Summer Games with 114 million viewers tuning in for at least part of the broadcast over the first two days.

 

Pilots for Delta and Northwest have agreed to cooperate under one contract if the airline gets federal approval to merge. Delta's acquisition of Northwest would create the world's largest airline. From member station WABE in Atlanta, Charles Edwards reports.

 

With the agreement, Atlanta-based Delta and Northwest have done something unprecedented. That's according to Captain Robert Hazzard, a spokesperson for Delta's Pilots Union. "Well the significance of today's announcement is this is the first time in the history of any airline merger that a pilot contract has been agreed to by both the company and both pilot groups in advance of the close of the merger."  Airline industry experts say such free merger deals are important. They point back to 2005 when US Airways bought America West. The two companies are now US Airways, but America West pilots are still operating under a separate contract. Delta and Northwest are in the clear though. The remaining question is how will they blend seniority list from each airline into one. Seniority determines a pilot's pay, benefits and work schedule.

Feds descend on New Orleans nonprofit facing probe

Email|Print|Single Page| Text size + By Becky Bohrer
Associated Press Writer / August 11, 2008
 
 

NEW ORLEANS—Federal agents descended Monday on a nonprofit hired by the city to run a home cleanup program after Hurricane Katrina and were photographed carting off boxes, days after a U.S. attorney announced an investigation involving the organization.

Recent local media reports have scrutinized ties between the former director of the New Orleans Affordable Homeownership Corp. and some top-earning contractors and raised questions over whether some of the cleanup work billed to the city was actually performed.

Agents from the FBI, IRS and offices of the inspectors general of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the city were at the nonprofit's office Monday morning, FBI spokeswoman Sheila Thorne confirmed. She gave no details, but said agents didn't show up to execute a search warrant.

Mayor Ray Nagin told the City Council last week that the city had been unable to document work on 90 of the roughly 870 projects NOAH claimed to have done. The city was billed for 46 of those 90 projects and would ask contractors involved to document any work done or provide reimbursement, he said.

On Friday, U.S. Attorney Jim Letten confirmed that an investigation involving the nonprofit was under way. Although he did not discuss the focus of the investigation, he said he hoped people with "relevant information" would come forward.

A newspaper's photo showed agents wheeling boxes from the building where the nonprofit, or NOAH, operated. NOAH was hired by the city to run a program meant to help low-income and elderly victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The attorney for the City Council, Russ Herman, said Friday that several council members had received subpoenas from the U.S. attorney's office to produce documents related to NOAH. On Monday, he added that he believed the full seven-member council had received subpoenas.

Herman said he planned to discuss the situation with council members in an executive session Wednesday.

City Attorney Penya Moses-Fields said it would be inappropriate for the city to comment on whether any subpoena from the U.S. attorney's office had been received by the mayor's office, NOAH's board of directors or staff, or any of the council members.

In an Aug. 1 letter to NOAH chairman Ed Shanklin, Nagin said he was "deeply concerned about the allegations." He called for NOAH to cease operations and turn over inventories of property, bank accounts and assets. The board fired the nonprofit's four employees last week.

Messages left at a listing for Ed Shanklin were not returned Monday.

NOAH was created in 1989 and funded mainly by government grants. The city has said it paid about $1.8 million under the house-gutting program, which it says was shut down last year.

还有那个CAPTURE~似乎没有讨论价值~就是它,肯定不会是CATCH,自己GOOGLE一下两个看看哈~

 

TO: JACKY

 

这是一个固定的词组,肯定没有THE的~  请尊重他人的劳动,偶写得很辛苦滴~不确定的请不要乱改~  还有另外那两处偶也持保留意见~

 

at issue  

1 : in a state of controversy : in disagreement
2 also in issue : under discussion or in dispute

 

 

讨论讨论~

啊~没错 press 那个地方是我弄错了, 应该是pressed, 否则应该是presses.

 

至于catch那里, 我又听了好几遍, 恩~是capture. 本来还不服气,谁说 catch 不可以用呢?于是去查了字典, 还真的没有capture的to gain control of sth.的意思啊~

 

 practice 同学的严谨精神令人佩服~向您学习

 

 

不过那一处:...says he'd send Secretary of State...我肯定哦(改的时候写成sent了)我觉得意思是“如果是我的话,我会派国务卿赖斯去调解”的意思。毕竟他现在没这个权利。所以是would send..

From NPR News in Washington, I’m Jack Speer.

 

President Bush today told reporters in the White House Rose Garden that recent actions by Russia against the former Soviet Republic of Georgia represent a dramatic and brutal escalation of violence, and just back from the Beijing Olympics, the president pressed Moscow to accept an immediate ceasefire and pull back its troops. ‘Russia’s government must respect Georgia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, the Russian government must reverse the course it appears to be on, and accept this piece of agreement as a first step toward resolving this conflict.’ The fighting comes on the heels of a Georgian offensive that began last week to try regaining control of the restive province of South Ossetia. Mikheil Saakashvili, president of the former Soviet Republic says Russian forces have captured several towns, a military base and a main highway near the central city of Gori, essentially cutting the country in half.

 

John McCain meanwhile is stepping up his criticism of Russia. For member station WITF in Harrisburg, Scott Detrow reports.

 

McCain’s calling for an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council and the G7 to address the crisis. Though he says the United States shouldn’t get involved militarily, the Arizona senator says he’d sent Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Russia to mediate. McCain says he suspicious of Russia’s motives. ‘I think it’s very clear that Russian ambitions are to restore the old Russian Empire, not to, not the Soviet Union, but the Russian Empire, which means on near abroad, which means you have greater influence or control over surrounding countries.’ The presumptive republican presidential nominee says it’s clear Vladimir Putin is still calling the shots in Russia despite handing over the presidency to Dmitri Medvedev earlier this year. For NPR News, I’m Scott Detrow in Harrisburg.

 

Federal agents descended on New Orleans’s housing organization hire by the city to clean up some of damage from hurricane Katrina today, the raid was part of a broader fraud investigation in New Orleans Affordable Housing Cooperation. NPR’s Dina Temple-Raston reports.

 

FBI and IRS officials arrived at the New Orleans Affordable Homeownership Corp. or NOAH, but the subpoena related to a broader fraud investigation. At issue is whether the non-profit company built the city for work that was never performed. According to officials familiar with the probe, NOAH was supposed to help low income and elderly victims of hurricane Katrina. Under its agreement with the city, NOAH was supposed to hire contractors to demolish or got homes ravaged by the hurricane. Investigators have found among other things, that homes that are supposed to have been destroyed were still standing. A federal grand jury authorized federal agents to collect documents related to the non-profit company’s finances and its client files. Dina Temple-Raston, NPR News.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 41, 48 points, end the session at 11,782. This is NPR.

 

In results from the Beijing Olympics, a major combats to report when it helps swimmer Michael Phelps capture his second gold medal of the Games, and the other that prevented American Katie Hoff from getting the gold. The 100-Meter Relay by Jason Lezak and the Men’s 400-Meter Freestyle which Phelps went the lead, helped the US team take the gold medal from the French mark the second gold medal for Phelps at this year’s games, Hoff led in the final turn at the Women’s 400 Freestyle was defeated however by Rebecca Adlington of Britain. This year’s numbers are shaping up due to perhaps the most watched ever Summer Games with 140,000 viewers tuning in for at least part of the broadcast of the first two days.

 

Pilots while Delta and Northwest have agreed to cooperate under one contract if the airline gets federal approval to merge, Delta’s accusation of Northeast would create the world’s last airline. For member station WABE in Atlanta, Charles Edwards reports.

 

With the agreement, Atlanta based Delta and Northwest have done something unprecedented, that’s according to captain Robert Hazzard, a spokes person for Delta’s Pilots Union. ‘For the significance of today’s announcement, this is the first time in the history of any airline merger that a pilot contract has been agreed to by both the company and both pilot groups in Atlanta of the course of the merger.’ Airline industry experts say such free merger deals are important, they put it back to 2005 when US airways bought America West. The two companies are now US airways, but America West pilots are still operating under a separate contract. Delta and Northwest aren’t in the clear though, the remaining question is how will they * sonority list from each airline into one. Sonority determines a pilot’s pay, benefits and work schedule.

布什那段,press 肯定也应该是pressed,新闻报道多用过去时,从整篇的时态即可看出,而且发音press后也有ed的发音。

奥运会那段,明显应该是capture, 这个非常之清楚,没有什么好争的。

至于maccain 那一段,

practice同学的he'd said Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Russia to mediate,say sb to do sth ,我觉得恐怕没有这种用法吧。

我也觉得应该是 he would send, 他现在似乎还没有权利派国务卿去协调吧,

 

PS 支持practice100同学的说法,我以前也说过很多次,希望大家无论是改别人的,还是贴自己的,都能够多推敲,不要把那些明显错误的东西贴出来,一来有误导之嫌,二来也让后面的同学改得很累。举个例子,在希崽的帖子中,Maccain那段,Not the, not the Soviet Union but the Russian Empire.  To win a near abroad, which means you have great influence or control over, surrounding countries,标红的一句话第一语义不清,前后根本不能联系起来,至少我不知道是什么意思,如果是单独的一个句子,后面怎么会又是一个which从句,这是什么结构?明显这应该是两个which从句, which means..... which means.......进一步阐述前面的那句话,

再比如再航空公司合并那段,在希崽的帖子中,how will they bring seniority list from each airline into one ,bring sth into sth 从字面上好像讲得通,但是正确的应该是blend seniority list from each other into one, 仔细多听听,仔细多推敲应该是可以不犯这种错误的吧。还是那句话对自己负责,也对别人负责。

said 那里肯定是偶错了的~不知道为啥当时会写了SAID~ 如此愚蠢的错误~

 

应该是says he'd send 吧~貌似应该是个虚拟语气~

 

would的声音很轻,应该是缩写成 he'd~

restive 和 rest of 听不出来有啥区别阿~

高手LULU前几天说过,其实在这样的地方,不完全是听出来的,也得靠上下文。

 

举一个例子:我给你很潦草的汉字;你不一定能认出来,但把它放到上下文里,那一下子就认出来了。人们常说“语感”,听力到了一定程度,就不是一个单词一个单词地去听了,而是听一个个意群了。

 

粗浅的学习体会,见笑了。
