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

 

An all too familiar sound to anyone who's been through a hurricane. Those are workers in New Orleans cleaning up storm debris, downed tree limbs and the like. The streets of the city meanwhile remain largely empty at this hour with only rescue and utility crews and those who like to stay behind there at the moment. O'neal Payne is a lifelong New Orleans resident who decided not to evacuate. "Well, there were much low windblown, but I was sitting, looking out of the window ahead, as you know, looked at that tree blown and drank my coffee and stuff, and just stay and pray. " Hundreds of thousands of people who did leave New Orleans have been told to sit tight a bit longer while cleanup continues. Half the city lacks power and there was damage to city sewers. Even though Hurricane Gustav did not cause the level of damage that had been feared, Mayor Ray Nagin has defended his order to evacuate New Orleans.

 

As the State of Louisiana cleans up from Hurricane Gustav, Floridians are being advised to keep their eyes on three tropical storms out in the Atlantic. Florida Public Radio's Trimmel Gomes reports.

 

Tropical Storm Josephine developed earlier in the day while Tropical Storm Ike grows in strength east of the Leeward Islands. Governor Charlie Crist is urging Floridians to stay on alert as Tropical Storm Hanna approaches. "This morning I have issued an executive order, declaring a state of emergency due to the threat of Hanna to the State of Florida. " Hanna is the third storm to threaten Florida in three weeks with two other storms brewing in the Atlantic. "At this time, we also await Hanna and maybe Ike and maybe Josephine. " Forecasters expect Hanna to strengthen and reach Georgia or the Carolinas before making landfall on Friday, placing the eastern Florida coastline in a three-day cone of uncertainty. For NPR News, I'm Trimmel Gomes in Tallahassee.

 

After a storm-shortened start, the Republican National Convention is getting into full swing in St. Paul. President Bush is slated to address delegates at the convention by satellite tonight. Also scheduled to speak are former Democratic vice presidential nominee Joe Lieberman and former Senator Fred Thompson. However there is another distraction for Republicans. Failed presidential candidate Ron Paul is holding an alternative gathering for his supporters. Robert Smith has that story.

 

While the mainstream Republicans meet in a hockey arena in St. Paul, the libertarian-wing of the party is across the river at the basketball stadium in Minneapolis. It's called "the Rally for the Republic" and the highlight is a speech tonight by Texas Congressman Ron Paul. The former Libertarian-turned-Republican didn't win any primaries during the spring, but he was a sensation on the internet, oftentimes raising more money than his mainstream rivals. Paul had requested a speaking spot at the Republican convention, but he says there were too many restrictions placed on him. So he put together his own gathering. Organizers say they sold 10, 000 tickets to the event. Ron Paul supporters traveled from around the country to come to Minneapolis in caravans of cars known as Ron Voice. Robert Smith, NPR News, St. Paul.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 26 points today.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to Libya this week, the first by a US secretary of state in half a century, has been touted as a bold signal of better ties with the country. Relations between the US and Libya have improved after the country announced in 2003 it would give up its weapons of mass destruction. However a series of terrorism incidents and suspicions have delayed a major turnaround. The visit by Rice is the first by a secretary of state since John Foster Dulles in 1953. Rice will also make stops in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco before returning to Washington on Sunday.

 

Google is launching its own web browser in over 100 countries within the hour. This is the first time Google has stepped into the browser market which is currently dominated by Microsoft's Explorer. NPR's Laura Sydell got an early peek at the new product.

 

It's called Chrome and Google developers say it's faster, easier to use and more secure than any existing browser. At the Google offices in Mountain View, California, Sundar Pichai showed off how quickly it launches. Tabs allow users to keep several websites open at once. That's not new. What is new, says Pichai, is that if the window with YouTube crashes, it doesn't freeze up the other windows. "So that when something happens to one of them, the rest of the browser works fine. " Google's entry into the web browser market isn't surprising. The company wants to keep people online using its search engine and recently-created office web applications. However, no matter how good the browser, analysts say it will be hard to win users off of Microsoft's Explorer which owns 70% of the market. Laura Sydell, NPR News, San Francisco.

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

 

An all too familiar sound, anyone who's been through a hurricane, those are workers in New Orleans cleaning up storm debris, down tree limbs and the like. The streets of the city meanwhile remain largely empty at this hour with only rescue and utility crews and those who elected to stay behind there at the moment. * Payne is a life-long New Orleans resident who decided not to evacuate. "What they were wind the wind blow, but I was said looking out the wind ahead, you know, looking at tree blow and drank my coffee and so, yes, stay and pray. " Hundreds of thousands of people who did leave New Orleans have been told to sit tight a bit longer while cleanup continues. Half the city lacks power and there was damage to city sewers. Even though Hurricane Gustav did not cause a level of damage that had been feared, Mayor Ray Nagin has defended his order to evacuate New Orleans. As the state of Louisiana cleans up from Hurricane Gustav, Floridians are being advised to keep their eyes on three tropical storms out in the Atlantic.

 

Florida Public Radio's Trimmel Gomes reports.

 

Tropical Storm Josephine developed earlier in the day while Tropical Storm Ike grows in strength east of the Leeward Islands. Governor Charlie Crist is urging Floridians to stay on alert as Tropical Storm Hanna approaches. "This morning I have issued an executive order, declaring a state of emergency due to the threat of Hanna to the state of Florida. " Hanna is the third storm to threaten Florida in three weeks with two other storms brewing in the Atlantic. "At this time, we also await Hanna and maybe Ike and maybe Josephine. " Forecasters expect Hanna to strengthen and reach Georgia or the Carolinas before making landfall on Friday placing the eastern Florida coastline in a three-day cone of uncertainty. For NPR News, I'm Trimmel Gomes in Tallahassee.

 

After a storm-shortened start, the Republican National Convention is getting into full swing in St. Paul. President Bush is slated to address delegates at the convention by satellite tonight. Also scheduled to speak are former Democratic vice-presidential nominee Joe Lieberman and former Senator Fred Thompson. While there is another distraction for Republicans, failed presidential candidate Ron Paul is holding an alternative gathering for his supporters. Robert Smith has that story.

 

While the mainstream Republicans meet in a hockey arena in St. Paul, the libertarian-wing of the party is across the river at the basketball stadium in Minneapolis. It's called the rally for the Republic and the highlight is a speech tonight by Texas Congressman Ron Paul. The former libertarian turned Republican, didn't win any primaries during the spring, but he was a sensation on the internet, oftentimes raising more money than his mainstream rivals.

sit tight

Hundreds of thousands of people who did leave New Orleans have been told to sit tight a bit longer while cleanup continues. 试译如下:

 

清理工作正在继续,数十万撤离新奥尔良的人被告知要观望一段时间(不要急于返回)。

 

Sit tight 观望


自从汶川地震发生以来,已有大批的志愿者进入灾区加入救援。人们的心意是好的,但是由于天气恶劣、余震不断,增加了险情,尸体开始腐烂,有疫情的危险,还是建议志愿者们不要再进入灾区,以免让自己涉险、同时给救援工作带来麻烦。这个让大家“先观望、不要采取行动”,可以用片语sit tight 来表示。

 

你出去买一辆汽车,你要推销员减价一千美元。推销员答应考虑一下。回到家里,你告诉你的朋友那辆车正是你想要的。你开始后悔没有按推销员要的价钱买下来。这时,你的朋友可能会对你说:

 

No, just be smart and sit tight. You offered a good price and I'll bet if you sit tight, he'll call up tomorrow and agree to take it.

 

不,你可要聪明点,不要采取什么行动。你还的价钱很好,我保证,要是你耐心等着,他明天会打电话来同意按你的价钱卖给你的。

 

美国有许多人靠买股票来生财。但是,股票市场的风险比较大。一有波动就有人马上出售手里的股票。可是,也有些长期投资的人在风波前面不采取行动而愿意观望一段时间。

 

When the stock price dropped drastically in 1987, some investors lost millions of dollars. But the majority of investors were sitting tight waiting for the stock market to bounce back.

 

当1987年股票价格大幅度下降的时候,有些投资者损失了几百万美元。可是,大多数投资者没有采取什么行动,只是观望,等待股票市场回升。

 

例子是google来的,与大家分享。
