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

 

Stock prices plunged again in the United States, taking a lead from overseas markets today. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished below 10,000 for the first time since October of 2004. NPR's Jim Zarroli has more.

 

The Dow dropped nearly 8% at one point in the day though it later rebounded. It's now fallen 25% this year. The NASDAQ Composite Index is down nearly 30%. The downturn came despite a big financial bailout signed into law by President Bush last week. That bailout was supposed to help stabilize the financial markets. But Ard Hugen of Jefferies & Companies says that hasn't happened yet. "The problems are due to more global and their domestic, and I think that none of those are necessarily fixed with a rescue plan the US put together." He says credit remains tight, and there were big drops in the European and Asian markets. Investors are worried that the US mortgage market downturn has now spread to other countries and that a global recession looms. Jim Zarroli, NPR News, New York.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down 369 points today, a decline of 3.5%, to end the session at 9955. The NASDAQ lost 84 points today. The S&P 500 was down 42 points.

 

A former Goldman Sachs investment banker has been given the nod to begin spending the $700 billion the government set aside to buy up some of the toxic assets of banks and financial firms. The government announced today that Neel Kashkari who has also served as an advisor to Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson won the government program at least on an interim basis. Kashkari helped to draft the legislation, approving government program to be administered through new office of financial stability. Before his career in finance, the 35-year-old worked for NASA.

 

Lehman Brothers chief executive Richard Fuld testified today about the demise of his firm before the House Government Reform Committee. NPR's Yuki Noguchi has more.

 

Richard Fuld open with what seemed like an apology to the country. "I take full responsibility for the decisions that I made and for the actions that I took." But he said media reports made him look resistant to selling his company. In fact, Lehman was caught in a financial tsunami that could have taken down any other financial institution, he said, and he did expect to contain the damage. "Contrary to what you may have read, I never turn down an offer to buy Lehman Brothers." Fuld faced stiff questions about the risk Lehman took with investors' money while collecting tens of millions of dollars in compensation for himself. Yuki Noguchi, NPR News, Washington.

 

The three judge panel has ruled that two of President Bush's top aides do not have to cooperate with a congressional investigation looking into the firings of nine federal prosecutors in 2006. It was court of appeals' ruling that overturns a district court order that would have required former White House counsel Harriet Miers to testify as well as Josh Bolten to turn over the documents.

 

This is NPR.

 

Pakistan today announced the deportation of around 50,000 Afghan refugees from a tribal region that has been home to insurgents and what has been built as a major offensive against al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The government said many of those being expelled have links to militant groups. A local government official announced the arrest of around two dozen Afghans in the region and said they will be deported. Officials also said in some instances, homes will be bulldozed to prevent them from returning. Meanwhile in the ongoing string of bombings against government and military targets in Pakistan, a suicide bomber attacked a lawmaker's home in the east part of the country. At least 15 people were killed, 50 others were wounded.

 

China has canceled or postponed a number of high level military contacts with the US in protest of planned arms sales to Taiwan. NPR's JJ Sutherland has more.

 

The move comes just days after the Defense Department said it plans to sell a number of advanced weapons to Taiwan. A Defense Department spokesman said it is an apparent politicalization to China's military relationship with the US. The multi-billion-dollar deal includes missiles, helicopters and spare parts for Taiwan's airforce. The Chinese Embassy in Washington released a statement saying the sale of weapons would undermine China's national security and that they would respond with strong indignation. This move seems to be part of that. China views Taiwan as a breakaway province and urged Washington to oppose "Taiwan independence". The Defense Department says the arms sales are necessary for Taiwan's defense. JJ Sutherland, NPR news.

 

Crude oil futures ended the sessions lower today. The near month contract for benchmark grade crude was down more than $6 a barrel today to settle at $87.81 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

Pakistan today announced the deportation of around 50,000 Afghan refugees from a tribal region that has been home to insurgents and what has been built as a major offensive against al-Qaeda and the Taliban. The government said many of those being expelled have links to militant groups. A local government official announced the arrest of around two dozen Afghans in the region and said they will be deported. Officials also said in some instances, homes will be bulldozed to prevent them from returning. Meanwhile in the ongoing string of bombings against government and military targets in Pakistan, a suicide bomber attacked a lawmaker's home in the east part of the country. At least 15 people were killed, 50 others were wounded.

 

China has canceled or postponed a number of high level military contacts with the US in protest of planned arms sales to Taiwan. NPR's JJ Sutherland has more.

 

The move comes just days after the Defense Department said it plans to sell a number of advanced weapons to Taiwan. A Defense Department spokesman said it is an apparent politicalization to China's military relationship with the US. The multi-billion-dollar deal includes missiles, helicopters and spare parts for Taiwan's airforce. The Chinese Embassy in Washington released a statement saying the sale of weapons would undermine China's national security and that they would respond with strong indignation. This move seems to be part of that. China views Taiwan as a breakaway province and urged Washington to oppose "Taiwan independence". The Defense Department says the arms sales are necessary for Taiwan's defense. JJ Sutherland, NPR news.

 

Crude oil futures ended the sessions lower today. The near month contract for benchmark grade crude was down more than $6 a barrel today to settle at $87.81 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

首先感谢这位听友对NPR的关心

 

关于今天音频的问题,我已经PM了qingchengshan大哥,以前也没有出现过这样的问题,相信是失误吧。

 

我8月份掌管NPR以来,一直都鼓励大家在听写帖里发问题,绝不可能删除,请问你何时见到有“正本清源的问题”被删除的情况

回复 11# 的帖子

还有,整理稿出来的好慢,都8号了,一号的都没有出来,请告知整理稿出街的流程,与捉刀手,让大家知道,对其也可以有一种无形中的约束,话多了,但还是说出来引起大家的注意好,别人抱怨现在npr版越来越水,死去何所道,托体同山阿!Summon the heroes

NPR是由谈笑和我负责,国庆节我电脑硬件出了问题,修了好长时间,而谈笑这段时间很忙,没有多少时间上论坛,所以落下了很多。我电脑六号修好以后,便开始边听当天的,边补前面落下的,因为谈笑忙,所以现在都是我一个人在处理NPR的各项工作,但是版主也有自己的事情,不可能长时间在线,不可能一天到晚都在那听,把前面落下的补回来总要有时间的。再说,如果图快,我大可以直接把最后一篇修改稿作为整理稿发上来,不是更快吗?难道你愿意看到这样的情况发生?

 

至于NPR很多水帖的问题,大家听写完毕,讨论材料内容的同时适当地聊一聊,活跃下气氛,有何不可?难道你愿意看到NPR冷冷清清的样子?再说,水帖只是暑假时候多一点,开学以后立马就变少了,这段时间真难得见到水帖,这是大家有目共睹的,你说水帖多,多在哪里?还有你说的“别人抱怨现在npr版越来越水”,又有何根据?

 

另外,你说过的话要负责,你前面说“正本清源的问题也要被删除,不知道是什么理论和逻辑”,你什么时候见到“正本清源的问题”被删除的?这是我在上帖提的问题,你还没有回答。

这位童子,如果认为你自己水平不错出来给大家服务吧。不要尽说风凉话。。。版主也是有自己的事情的,你怎么不天天时时刻刻上线啊,貌似也没见你写几个听力作业。。。做人不要太刻薄了哈!!!

 

NPR人少,是因为其难度大,有种天天来写写。。。

 

 

 

我还在,你们在哪里?北星。翩然。芊芊。叶叶。。。。

两位斑竹也不必生气,相信5楼的那位仁兄也是无心之言,多少有点恨铁不成钢的意思.

 

据我所知,PUT的斑竹都是很负责的. 一般来说,当天的听写音频出来,第二天,整理稿就出来了,并且对不确定的地方还进行跟踪改正.在这里谢谢各位有心的斑竹了.

 

我也注意到了NPR在10月初有段时间没有更新整理稿.其实大家都很忙,相信这里很多斑竹都是兼职或是靠兴趣来做的.每天都要挤出时间来搭理论坛的方方面面问题.只要说出原因,作为我们在这个论坛得到实惠的人也就没有必要再来指指点点了.

 

另外,有什么非更新或改正听写稿的问题,可以单独发布主题进行讨论.请不要在听写音频的帖子中出现.

 

PS: 酒后多说了两句,如有异议,请另起炉灶,另建新帖讨论.另外,斑竹认为此回复发布的地方不对,可以另转他处或删除.

 

If you want something very badly,
set it free.
If it comes back to you,
it's yours forever.
If it doesn't,
it was never yours to begin with.
