提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
我的理解:
Richard Lang(不像是这个音)这个人是个economist, Jack这里口误,把他说成economics,然后改正为economist。我没有听到owner...
后面的我赞同jmmom斑斑,在八月的研究中...
The Economist是英国著名 ...

Richard 同学是对的,可以听得非常的明显,播音员说的是XX is an economic, 然后意识到自己说错了,换为economist。在播音中意识到错误后,在替换的词后用rather是非常常见的事情。至于owner,jimmom你可以多听听那是完全没有的。

谢谢大家指教,我听得还不够认真,是听到有/oun/的音,就以为是owner,完全忽略了后面有/s/的音。若留意到这个/s/音,就不会犯这个错了。另外,以为说新闻报道员把人说成是enconomic的口误要比误称Economist杂志为Enconomic严重多了,想说他不会犯这样的错误。

我找到答案了:

Richard Yamarone, director of Economic Research at Argus Research。

嘻嘻,是Argus Research.

大家争执的好激烈啊。我也来凑个热闹。

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

The interest rat
es setting arm, the Federal Reserve has wrapped up its two-day meeting in Washington, taking no action on a key overnight bank lending rate it controls. In its end of meeting statement, the members of the Fed's Open Market Committee also signaled the economy appears to be showing signs of leveling off, though policymakers say economic activity is likely to remain weak for some time. Richard Yamarone, is an economic, uh economist rather, of Argus Research, he says while there're some reasons for optimism, the wild card remains companies becoming confident enough to begin hiring again.

"We had a considerable improvement in economic conditions, even from housing to somewhat in the automotive sector. But that one thorn in this handful of roses that we've had in a
wave of economic indicators over the last couple of weeks, the one thorn remains unemployment."

Fed has been keeping short-term interest rates (at) between zero and 0.25% and indicated following today's meeting, it is prepared to continue doing that for what it termed "an extended period of time".

On Wall Street, investors seemed to applaud the Fed's actions. The Dow Jones Industrial Average climbed 120 points today. The NASDAQ was up 28 points.

A Minnesota man accused of traveling to Somalia to join a terrorist group there pleaded guilty to lying to an FBI agent in a Minneapolis court. NPR's Dina Temple-Raston reports.

Kamal Sruthi Hassan is a small part of a broader federal investigation into the disappearance of more than two dozen young Somali-Americans from the Twin Cities over the past two years. Hassan traveled to Somalia to fight for a militia there called al-Shabaab. When Hassan returned to the US, he apparently lied to the FBI about where he'd been. He's now in US custody. This is the third indictment in the case the FBI has called the largest terrorism investigation in this country since 9/11. US intelligence is concerned that al-Shabaab recruits could decide to return and attack here. al-Shabaab is on the State Department's list of terrorist organizations. Its leadership has ties to al-Qaeda, although intelligence officials are divided over how much sway Al Qaeda has over the group. Dina Temple-Raston, NPR News.

Federal government's pool of red ink grows in July as Federal outlays to fight a widening recession continue to increase. Government says the July budget deficit of 180.6 billion dollars, a record for the month, brings the fiscal year today budget shortfall

just over 1.2 trillion dollars. That is more than triple the deficit for the same period a year ago. In a separate report, the government also announced a rise in the monthly trade gap to 27 billion dollars.

Once again recapping Wall Street today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 120 points to close at 9,361. The NASDAQ was up 28 points, ending the session at 1,998. The Standard & Poor's 500 also gained ground today in light of the Federal Reserve's moves. The S&P 500 was up 11 points, ending the session at 1,005.

You are listening to NPR News.

There are continued reports of heavy fighting between US Marines and members of the Taliban in southern Afghanistan as
a force they seek to gain control of the strategic Taliban-held town ahead of critical elections next week. Officials say 500 US and Afghan troops exchanged heavy fire with insurgents, killing at least seven people.  And the defense, they say, is aimed at cutting off Taliban's supply lines. It's the first time NATO troops have entered the area which has been under Taliban control for several years.

Congressman David Scott of Georgia says racism has taken over the debates surrounding the overhaul of health care. From Georgia Public Broadcasting, Susanna Capelouto reports.

David Scott is a Democrat who had to confront people angry over possible changes in health care at a town hall meeting. He's also African-American. And his office has received faxes with racial slurs which he's turned over to the FBI. And this week a swastika was spray-painted over his name at his suburban Atlanta district office. Scott blames conservative talk radio for injecting race into the health care debate. "Now when you look at Rush Limbaugh, saying, ‘Hey, we want Obama to fail’, what do you think that means for them? And they are using the American people. And they are pricking their conscience with this racism. That is so much there with us.  Just...And they know how to do it." Scott says in his seven years in Congress, he's never gotten this high a level of racial threats. For NPR News, I'm Susanna Capelouto in Atlanta.

The bodies of the five Italian tourists killed this, in this past weekend's collision between a small private plane and a sightseeing helicopter, have been flown back to Italy. The crash which occurred Saturday over the Hudson River left a total of nine people dead. The final two victims' bodies were pulled from the waters yesterday.

Richard Yamarone is an economic, or economist rather, at Argus Research.

He says while there are some reasons for optimism, the wild card remains is companies becoming confident enough to begin hiring again.

 

"We had a considerable improvement in economic conditions, even from housing to somewhat in the automotive sector. But that one thorn in this handful of roses that we've had in a wave of economic indicators over the last couple of weeks, the one thorn remains unemployment."

 

 

 

结合下面的话,说的是同一个意思, unemployment rate is high, company not confident enough to hire more 就是这位仁兄所谓的wild card

He says while there is some reason(我还是坚持认为前面那个是is,后面这个也肯定是reason,不是reasons) for optimism, the wild card remains for(这个for仔细听应该是比较明显的,再者从语法角度看,如果这里没了for,这个句子就有毛病了,无论是加了is 或直接不加都是不行的,另外,sparklark大哥的compnies 后面加个are 显然语法上也不行,读音上也不符合)companies to becoming confident ....
whatever happens, happens for a reason
我说这帖怎么看着这么眼熟,怎么还没沉到下面去呢?原来这里还在讨论。richard斑斑可真够辛苦哦!我再来把它翻上去,大家不介意吧?
我听来听去,怎么都是:
He says while there're some reasons for optimism, the wild card remains companies becoming confident enough to begin hiring again.

前半句中,reason后面的“s”是说得很轻很快,基本上听不出来,但语法和意思上完全没有问题。后半句的话,我也认为没有什么问题,但我不是英文专业,不懂解释语法,所以就请教了一位英文老师(虽然也是一家之见,但人家毕竟是多年在大学里训练英语老师的资深教授)。他说上面的句子没什么问题,他大致上说了一下:
“remain” is a linking verb,其作用就像是系动词"be";后面可跟形容词或名词或从句。没有说是remain to doing sth 的。

例子:He remains silent.
        They remained friends. 还有这稿子里的一句:the one thorn remains unemployment.
        The fact remains that racism is still a considerable problem.

所以这里这个后半段这个从句的结构是:
“the wild card”--subject
“remains”--linking verb
“companies becoming confident enough to begin hiring again”--a noun phrase served as the object.
“becoming confident...”是一个present participle来修饰前面的companies.

大概就是这样,听完以后又有点忘记了,总之,语法上俺是弱弱的,需要补习。
另外我想这后半句或许可以变成是这样的:
the wild card remains that companies are becoming confident enough to begin hiring again.
可能整句话本身就是一个从句,里面再用一个从句有点累赘了,用“the wild card remains companies becoming confident enough to begin hiring again”就更简洁吧。

Alert兄改得不错,不过我认为the wild card remains companies are becoming confident enough to begin hiring again. 语法上是没有问题的。此句也可写做The wild card remains (that)companies are becoming confident enough to begin hiring again,其中that后面的部分即为wild card的内容,用完整句子结构表达并无不妥,意为不确定的因素仍然是公司是否有足够信心开始雇人。Remain的这种用法没有问题,也很常见举个结构上相似的例子: The situation remains (that) we should deal with the problem swiftly . 这种用法我觉得应该不存在任何争议。
