From NPR News in Washington, I'm Craig Windham.

 

President Bush is praising the bipartisan financial rescue plan worked out in negotiations with the administration. He said he knows the vote on the measure will be difficult for lawmakers, but he's confident it will be approved. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says the bill includes a number of provisions to keep Wall Street firms and their executives from profiting from the bailout. "We sent a message to Wall Street. The party is over. The era of golden parachutes for high-flying Wall Street operators is over." The New York Times reports one of the last changes included in the bill would allow the government to recoup any losses incurred from the bailout after five years from the financial community.

 

GOP presidential nominee John McCain says he will swallow hard and support the financial rescue bill. NPR's Scott Coarsely reports.

 

John McCain says despite its high price tag, the financial rescue plan worked out over the weekend meets his conditions for oversight and taxpayer protection. McCain told ABC it's important to get the plan off the negotiating table and passed quickly. "The real effectiveness is gonna restore some confidence and get some credit out there and get the economic system moving again which is basically in gridlock today." McCain dramatically left the campaign trail last week to join the negotiations in Washington, a move House Republicans applauded and some Democrats called counter-productive. McCain spent much of Saturday phoning Republicans urging them to support the rescue. Scott Coarsely, NPR News, Washington.

 

Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is also expressing support for the rescue plan. At a rally in Detroit today, Obama called the financial mess an outrage coming as many Americans are facing tough times. "Nowhere had there been more difficult than in Michigan, nowhere had there been more difficult than in Detroit. The auto-industry knows something about our hard times. So I know it's been hard." Obama told the crowd that if he wins Michigan, he's convinced he'll win the election.

 

Hurricane Kyle is plowing northward in the Atlantic and is expected to make landfall in eastern Canada sometime tonight or early tomorrow. The storm will not directly hit Maine but tropical storm warnings are posted there. From Maine Public Radio, Tom Porter has more.


The approach of Hurricane Kyle has led to emergency preparations on the stretch of coast known as Down East running from Penobscot Bay which is about halfway of the state to the Canadian border. In this rugged sparsely populated stretch of New England, lobstermen are moving their boats into sheltered coast out of harm's way wherever possible. Winds are expected to reach 60 miles per hour. The last time a hurricane watch was posted in Maine was when Hurricane Bob paid a visit in 1991. For NPR News, this is Tom Porter in Brunswick Maine.

 

Flood watches are in effect from New Hampshire to Maine as the hurricane brushes up the eastern seaboard.

 

This is NPR News from Washington.

 

Gasoline prices are down nearly four cents a gallon over the past two weeks. Self-service regular now averages $3.66 a gallon nationwide. Industry analyst, Truby Lundberg. "Most cities saw lower prices in the past two weeks. The biggest drop we found in our sample with Little Rock, Arkansas down 31 cents." Lundberg expects prices at the pump to decline further over the next few weeks.

 

Gas stations in parts of the southeast are still short on fuel as worried drivers keep topping off their tanks. One of the cities most affected is Atlanta. From Georgia Public Broadcasting, Susanna Capelouto reports.

 

Driving around Atlanta, you see gas station after gas station with blank signs and when there is gas, long lines will tell. Eric Rockliff tried to beat the system to fill up his Ford Expedition. "I set my alarm for 2:45 am, and jumped into my car looking for gas." Through networking and texting with friends, he knew that QT stations were likely to have gas. "The one closest to my house, even at 3 am, had cars lined up in the street in both directions." Rockliff knew of another QT down the street and got lucky no lines. This hit-and-miss situation officials say is caused by a shortage of supply from Gulf refineries still reeling from hurricane shutdowns. For NPR News, I am Susanna Capelouto in Atlanta.

 

Voters in Ecuador have approved by a two to one margin a new constitution for the country, a constitution that will significantly expand the powers of the country's leftist President Raphael Correa. He'll also be allowed to run for two more consecutive terms in office. Correa called the vote a historic victory. Critics say the new constitution gives the president too much authority.

试用了一下everyzing的script,没想到竟然沙发

惭愧ing!

要是自己听写的话,好多单词虽然听的明白,可就是不会写。

果然如brightu斑斑说的一样,只能参考,照搬就失去听写的意义了。

不知道自己先听几遍,然后再在它的script上直接修改能否达到提高的效果,因为自己听写速度实在是太慢了

 

呵呵,实在听不懂的再去看everyzing,不能直接照搬,再说,everyzing上的transcript毕竟是用软件“听”出来的,不是人听的,还是有很多错误的

President Bush is praising the bipartisan financial rescue plan worked out in the negotiations with the administration. He said he knows the vote on the measure will be difficult for lawmakers, but he's confident it will be approved. Our speaker Nancy Pelosi says the bill includes a number of provisions to keep Wall Street firms and executives from profiting from the bailout, 'We sent a message to Wall Street, the party is over, the era of golden parachutes for high flying Wall Street operators is over'. The New York Time reports one of the last changes included in the bill will allow the government to recoup any losses incurred from the bailout after 5 years from the financial community. GOP presidential nominee John McCain says he will swallow hard and support the financial rescue bill. NPR's Scott Coarsely reports, 'John McCain says despite its high price tag, the financial rescue plan worked out over the weekend meets his conditions for oversight and taxpayer protection. McCain told ABC it's important to get the plan off the negotiating table and passed quickly, "The real effectiveness of this is kind of restore some confidence and get some credit out there and get the economic system moving again which is basically in grayed luck today". McCain dramatically left the campaign trail last week to join a negotiation in Washington, a move House Republicans applauded and some democrats called "counterproductive". McCain spent much of his Saturday phoning republicans urging them to support the rescue. Scott Coarsely, NPR News, Washington'.

 

Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama is also expressing support for the rescue plan. At a rally in Detroit today, Obama called the financial mess an outrage coming as many Americans are facing tough times.

A golden parachute is a contractual agreement between a company and an employee (usually an upper executive) specifying that the employee will receive certain significant benefits if employment is terminated. Sometimes, certain conditions, typically a change in company ownership, must be met, but often the cause of termination is unspecified. These benefits may include severance pay, cash bonuses, stock options, or other benefits. They are designed to reduce perverse incentives.

Proponents of golden parachutes argue that they provide three main benefits:

  1. Golden parachutes make it easier to hire and retain executives, especially in industries more prone to mergers.
  2. They help an executive to remain objective about the company during the takeover process.
  3. They dissuade takeover attempts by increasing the cost of a takeover.

Critics have responded to the above by pointing out that:

  1. Dismissal is a risk in any occupation, and executives are already well compensated.
  2. Executives already have a fiduciary responsibility to the company, and should not need additional incentives to stay objective.
  3. Golden parachutes costs are a very small percentage of a takeover's costs and does not affect the outcome.

The use of golden parachutes have caused some investors concern since they don't specify that the executive had to perform successfully to any degree. Their concern is understandable since many golden parachute clauses can promise executive compensation benefits well into the millions. In some high-profile instances, some executives cashed in their golden parachute while under their stewardship their companies lost millions and thousands of workers were laid off as a result
