President Bush says a C-17 plane is already on its way to deliver aid to Georgia and he’s promising as he put it ‘a vigorous and ongoing humanitarian mission’, he called on Russia to let the US ships and planes bring in the supplies and to abide by a ceasefire. ‘We expect Russia to meet its commitment to cease all military activates in Georgia, and we expect all Russian forces that entered Georgia in recent days to withdraw from that country.’ President Bush said Russia must act if he wants to repair the damage to its relation with the US and Europe. Michele Kelemen, NPR News, Washington.

 

Republican presidential hopeful John McCain’s also waiting on the tenuous situation in the former Soviet Republic. Saying today that Russia’s invasion of Georgia is a stark reminder the world is a dangerous place. Speaking to reporters in Michigan, McCain said the Russian action should publican a complete re-examination of US relations with Moscow, though he said he doesn’t expect to return to the days of the Soviet Union. ‘I don’t think we are gonna reignite the cold war here with Russian. I think this is a very serious situation, but I don’t see this is a return to nuclear standoff *.’ McCain while ruling out military action did say there should be heightened security for Ukraine, the Baltic States and Poland. He said because of Russia’s actions, NATO should also address the future of the alliance’s relationship with Russia.

 

The head of the Democratic Party in Arkansas were shot and killed today after a gunman attacked the party headquarters in Little Rock. NPR’s Audie Cornish reports.

 

Police say the suspect in the killing went to the Democratic Party headquarters in Little Rock and asked to see chairman Bill Gwatney about volunteering, instead, officials say the suspect opened fire on the state party chair before fleeing in the pickup truck. Doctor Charles Allen sits on the party’s executive committee and says the attack is devastating. ‘We are sending our prayers out to the Gwatney family and we’re certainly remembering those said they were in the headquarters because it, it was very dramatic to them. But we are all, we are all in grief.’ Allen says the party’s working on organizing a visual for Gwatney who’s just 49. The suspect in the case was shot and killed by police near the community of Sheridan, South of Little Rock after leading authorities on a thirty-mile car chase. Audie Cornish, NPR News.

 

Department store giant Macy says its earnings for the second quarter dipped slightly from a year ago, Macy says for the three month * June it earned 73 million dollars or 17 cents a share, that was about 2 cents a share below Wall Street analysts’ expectations.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 109 points today, ending the session at 11,532. The NASDAQ dropped two points. This is NPR.

 

Despite the vacation season, Americans’ cut back on their driving for the eighth month in a row in June, US transportation apartment says the number of highway miles traveled fell 4.7% from a year ago. NPR’s Jennifer Ludden has the story.

 

The decline translates into 12 billion miles not driven, mostly in rural areas, which have been hit hardest by high gas prices. At the pump, it’s meant more than 300 gallons of gasoline and diesel not bought, the American petroleum institute says the cutback is essentially a raise five years of growth in gasoline demand. The drop in gas sales is also affecting highway construction and repairs which are funded by a gas tax. Transportation secretary Mary Peters expects the gap to get worse as motorists look for better fuel efficiency and alternate fuels. Peters suggests some new form of highway funding is needed. Jennifer Ludden, NPR News, Washington.

 

A three alarmed fire broke out at Apple last night, one building at the company’s Silicon Valley headquarters was damaged. For member station KQED in San Francisco Marley Samuel reports.

The blaze burnt for more than three hours, firefighters were able to contain it after midnight. No one was injured in the fire, a spokesman for the Santa Clara County fire department said Apple can expect to see extensive smoke damage. The fire may have started in an air-conditioning unit in the building. For NPR News, I’m Marley Samuel in San Francisco.

Despite the vacation season, Americans' cut back on their driving for the 8th month in a row in June. US Transportation Department says the number of highway miles traveled fell 4.7% from a year ago. NPR's Jennifer Ludden has the story.

 

The decline translates into 12 billion miles not-driven, mostly in rural areas, which had been hit hardest by high gas prices. At the pump, it's meant more than 700 gallons of gasoline and diesel not bought. The American Petroleum Institute says the cutback has essentially erased five years of growth in gasoline demand. The drop in gas sales is also affecting highway construction and repairs which are funded by a gas tax. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters expects the gap to get worse as motorists look for better fuel efficiency and alternate fuels. Peters suggests some new form of highway funding is needed. Jennifer Ludden, NPR News Washington.

 

A three-alarm fire broke out at Apple last night. One building at the company's Silicon Valley headquarters was damaged. From member station KQED in San Francisco Molly Samuel reports.

 

The fire burned the roof and second floor of one of the buildings at Apple's campus in Cupertino. There were reports of smoke coming from the building late Tuesday night. The blaze's burned for more than three hours. Firefighters were able to contain it after midnight. No one was injured in the fire. A spokesman for the Santa Clara County Fire Department said Apple can expect to see extensive smoke damage. The fire may have started in an air-conditioning unit in the building. For NPR News, I'm Molly Samuel in San Francisco.

 

Businesses added to their stockpiles of inventories in June at the fastest pace in five months. The Commerce Department says stockpiles on Store Shelves and backlogs rose seven tenths of a percent, that was nearly double the previous month's rise.

President Bush is sending Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Georgia to show support for the embattled president there. He’s also launching a humanitarian mission with the Pentagon in the lead. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports.

 

President Bush says a C-17 plane is already on its way to deliver aid to Georgia and he's promising, as he put it, a “vigorous and ongoing" humanitarian mission. He called on Russia to let the US ships and planes / bring in the supplies and to abide by a ceasefire. "We expect Russia to meet its commitment to cease all military activities in Georgia, and we expect all Russian forces that entered Georgia in recent days to withdraw from that country." President Bush said Russia must act if it wants to repair the damage to its relations with the US and Europe.  Michele Kelemen, NPR News Washington.

 

 

Republican presidential hopeful John McCain's also weighed in on the tenuous situation in the former Soviet Republic, saying today that Russia's invasion of Georgia is a stark reminderthe world is a dangerous place. Speaking to reporters in Michigan, McCain said the Russian action should prompt a complete re-examination of US relations towards Moscow, though he said he doesn't expect to return to the days of the Soviet Union. "I don't think we're gonna reignite the Cold War here with Russia, I think this is a very serious situation, but I don't see this as a return to nuclear stand-off, et cetera et cetera." McCain, while ruling out military action, did say there should be heightened security for Ukraine, the Baltic States and Poland. He said because of Russia's actions, NATO should also address the future of the alliance's relationship with Russia.

 

The head of the Democratic Party in Arkansas was shot and killed today after a gunman attacked the Party headquarters in Little Rock. NPR's Audie Cornish reports.

 

Police say the suspect in the killing went to the Democratic Party headquarters in Little Rock and asked to see Chairman Bill Gwatney about volunteering. Instead officials say the suspect opened fire on the State Party chair before fleeing in a pickup truck. Dr. Charles Allen sits on the Party's Executive Committee and says the attack is devastating. "We're sending our prayers out to the Gwatney family, and we're certainly remembering those, that, that they were in the headquarters because it, it was very dramatic to them but we are all, we are all in grief." Allen says the Party's working on organizing a vigil for Gwatney who is just 49. The suspect in the case were shot and killed by police near the Community of Sheridan, south of Little Rock after leading authorities on a 30-mile car chase. Audie Cornish, NPR News.

to 翩然

 

1. At the pump, it's met more than 700 gallons of gasoline and diesel not bought. met 和 meant 的读音是些不同的,这个地方肯定该是met,没有那个后鼻音。highway没人走和gasoline and diesel卖不出去是两个同时发生的现象,所以用met表同时发生

 

2. better fuel efficiency and alternative fuels. 虽然他读的很像alternate,应该是弱化了tive的尾音。alternative fuels是常用搭配,alternate fuels在意思上讲不通

 

3. Shelves and backlots,这里有新闻http://www.northjersey.com/business/news/26943029.html

                                                http://www.kansascity.com/438/story/746589.html

 

4. let the US ships and planes to bring in the supplies 个人觉得这个地方听到了个to,但是不太肯定,let to do sth,翩然再听一下吧

 

5. Macy says for the three months ending June, it'd earned $73 million or 17 cents a share. 这个地方用一般过去时个人觉得不恰当,应该是有一个完成时,因为前面有一个 for + time,表示在这段时间里的盈利 

 

以上为个人意见,欢迎大家讨论

1. At the pump, it's met more than 700 gallons of gasoline and diesel not bought. met meant 的读音是些不同的,这个地方肯定该是met,没有那个后鼻音。highway没人走和gasoline and diesel卖不出去是两个同时发生的现象,所以用met表同时发生

这里偶反复听了下,那个鼻音有没有听得头都大了,偶想如果是用meant偶的理解是:前面提到滴 12 billion miles not driven,这个事实就meant(意味着)more than 700 gallons of gasoline and diesel not bought这样一个结果。

 

4. let the US ships and planes to bring in the supplies 个人觉得这个地方听到了个to,但是不太肯定,let to do sth,翩然再听一下吧

这里偶在谷了let sb. to do sth. 的用法,基本没找到诶,偶找到这样一句话“正确的应该是let sb. do sth.  let 后面的动词不定式常省略to.

偶就想平常咱都说‘let me go’,不会说 ‘let me to go.’,所以偶觉得米有to

貌似shelving backlog的结果比较多

 

 

请SKY大哥看看~

 

 

shelves and backlots

 

输入这个关键词,能找到的基本上是同一句话~

 

Stockpiles on businesses' shelves and backlots grew by 0.7 percent in June

 

偶觉得可能是第一个人写错了~然后大家来引用还是什么的~可能跟着也错了~

 

 

 

希望SKY和KT两位经常来NPR赐教嘛~~~

还有另外一句就是这个了,句中的数据和日期都是一样的

 

The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that stockpiles held by businesses on shelves and backlots rose by 0.7% in June

 

G出来大多都是这两句~

 

在下觉得应该是第一篇文章写错,然后就跟着误传鸟·

 

我们自己写汉字有时也会写错别字的嘛~
