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

 

European leaders are pledging to do all they can to curtail the credit crisis that is spreading globally from the US. The announcement came after a meeting in Paris concerning the financial crisis. The BBC's Alasdair Sandford reports from Paris.

 

As expected, there's to be no big bailout fund, but the four European leaders have promised to work together to support European banks in trouble. Speaking after the three-hour summit, President Sarkozy said countries would operate with their own methods but in a coordinated manner. He also said they would look to make sure that the leaders of failed banks were punished. The President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso joined the French president in saying that the EU's strict budget rules would be applied flexibly during the current exceptional circumstances. The BBC's Alasdair Sanford in Paris.

 

President Bush says the financial rescue plan enacted by Congress will take some time to implement, so he said not all the benefits will be felt immediately. One that may though is the provision that will temporarily raise to 250,000 dollars, the amount the government will ensure for individual bank depositors. "These steps should reassure Americans, especially small business owners that their money is safe and it should restore confidence in the health of our banking system." Mr Bush speaking in his weekly radio address today.

 

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama is campaigning in Virginia today. It's a battleground state that has not gone to a Democratic presidential nominee since 1964. NPR's Audie Cornish reports.

 

At a waterfront park rally in Newport News, Virginia, Obama opened up with an attack on Senator John McCain's health care policy, continued on that track for more than 15 minutes. "That's right, John McCain was to deregulate the insurance industry, just like he fought to deregulate the banking industry and we've seen how well that worked out." Obama's own plan requires employers provide health care or pay 6% of their payroll in taxes and it would ban insurers from cherry-picking healthier patients or screening out those with pre-existing conditions. Audie Cornish, NPR News, Newport News, Virginia.

 

Engineers at the Kennedy Space Center are getting ready to roll the space shuttle Atlantis back off its launch pad. Atlantis' mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope has been postponed. Pat Duggins of member station WMFE reports.

 

Technicians will spend the weekend disconnecting electrical cables between Atlantis and its launch pad. On Monday, crews will unload the replacement parts for Hubble that are latched in the shuttle's cargo bay. The list includes a new wide field and planetary cameras with six batteries weighing 125 pounds each. Astronauts were planning to snap these new components onto Hubble. That is until the telescope's primary data transmitter failed. NASA's delaying the flight until at least February, so the shuttle crew can train to replace the broken unit with a new one. Once Atlantis is rolled off its launch pad, shuttle Endeavor is next in line to go to orbit on a mission to the International Space Station. NASA is taking steps to start that flight two days early. For NPR News, I'm Pat Duggins in Atlanta.

Poland's role in the US-led coalition in Iraq has come to an end. Polish forces turned over control of an area south of Baghdad to American troops today. But even as the Polish troops head home from Iraq, Poland is sending more troops to Afghanistan.

 

Two US helicopters crashed into each other while landing at a base in Baghdad today. The crash killed one Iraqi soldier and injured two American troops and two Iraqis. Iraqi police say the incident occurred during clashes between gunmen and US-backed Iraqi forces in northern Baghdad.

 

A new report from the Transportation Department finds that nine of nation's major airlines are relying much more heavily on outside maintenance contractors than they were four years ago. NPR's Jack Speers has details.

 

It's no secret that the airlines, partly in an effort to cut costs, have been outsourcing routine scheduled maintenance. But the inspector general's report found the volume of outside work has increased dramatically. The airlines examined included Continental, Delta, Untied, JetBlue and Southwest. Last year, they sent 71% of their heavy airframe maintenance checks to outside contractors, up from 34% in 2003. More than a quarter of that work was done by overseas contractors. At the same time, the report contends the Federal Aviation Administration has failed to closely monitor how the repairs have been carried out, relying on the airlines themselves to make sure they meet accepted safety standards. Not included in the list was the nation's largest domestic airline, American, which handles most of its maintenance in house. Jack Speer, NPR News, Washington.

 

Long time Democratic Congressman William Jefferson of Louisiana is seeing his political career on the line today. He is fighting bribery charges and competing with six other Democrats in a primary for his New Orleans-based seat.

Cherry picking is also used to refer to business policies of picking out profitable customers from a large base. An example of this use is that by insuring only healthy people and refusing to insure those who were unhealthy or are likely to become unhealthy, a health insurance company can cherry pick the most profitable customers. If an auto insurance company insured only good drivers by cherry picking them from among all drivers this would enable a company to gain an advantage over a company that insures all drivers.

To prevent auto insurance companies from cherry picking only the good drivers and leaving poorer drivers without any insurance, most states in the U.S.A. require auto insurance companies to insure a certain number of drivers with poor records.

好栏目推荐之美国口语俚语

今天的听写以下两句一直没有听懂,知道看了JJMM的稿,才明白,不知道大家是怎么听出来的。

1, Obama's own plan requires employers provide health care or pay 6% of their payroll in taxes and it will ban insurers from cherry picking healthier patients or screening out those with pre-existing conditions.

这句总结下可能是INSURER, CHERRY PICKING , SCREEN OUT, PRE-EXISTING,这几个词没听懂,很奇怪REQUIRE 这个词开始时我也没听出来,不知道是不是想歪了。

2,On Monday, crews will unload the replacement parts for the Hubble that are latched in the shuttle’s cargo van.

LATCH 这个词一直没有听出来,而VAN 我听成BAN,这句话想听懂就没戏了。

3,Once Atlantis is rolled off its launch pad, shuttle Endeavor is next  in line to go to orbit on a mission on the international space station.

ENDEAVOR, ORBIT 没有听出来,不过主要是ENDEAVOR 没有听出来,不知道是讲另外一架飞船将会排期升空,这是一个很好的例子说明名字在听力中也很重要的。唉,要记的真是太多了。

4,还有好几处,其他的词汇,虽然可以猜得出来整句的意思,比如:

was to deregulate the ... 中的TO,是否真的有,我没听出来,但根据语法只有加上了。不知道大家有没有听出来。

A new report from the transportation department finds that nine of the nation’s major airlines are relying much more heavily on outside maintenance contractors than they were four years ago. NPR’s Jack Speer has details.

 

It’s no secret that the airlines partly in effort to cut costs that have been outsourcing routine scheduled maintenance. But the inspector general’s report found the volume of outside work has increased dramatically. The airlines examined included Continental, Delta, United, Jet Blue and Southwest. Last year, they sent 71% of their heavy airframe maintenance checks outside contractors, up from 34% in 2003. More than a quarter of that work was done by overseas contractors. At the same time, the report contains the Federal Aviation Administration has failed to closely monitor how the repairs have been carried out, relying on the airlines themselves to make sure they meet accepted safety standards. Not included in the list was the nation’s largest domestic airline – American -- which handles most of its maintenance in house. Jack Speer, NPR News Washington.
