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



Speaking today at the United Nations Climate Summit in New York, President Obama pledged to make the issue of climate change a key US initiative. President said the nation is determined to act against the threat of global climate change in order to meet our responsibility to future generations.



"The security and stability of each nation and all peoples, our prosperity, our health and our safety, are in jeopardy. And the time we have to reverse this tide is running out."



Meanwhile it’s not just the US that aligned ambitious climate change goals. China today pledged to plant enough trees to cover an area, the size of Norway, as part of a broader effort to counter greenhouse gas emissions.



On Capitol Hill, the last of five committees with the duty of drafting a health care bill has begun debate. NPR’s Audie Cornish has more.



The draft bill taken up by the Senate Finance Committee today requires every US citizen to have coverage or face a fine. The proposal includes subsidies to help those who can’t afford insurance but Democrats on the committee are already concerned theyre too low. Moreover Democrats, like Senator Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, expresses disappointment that the draft does not include a government-backed insurance option.



"We need to make sure families have a real choice of health insurance plans, including a public health insurance option that keeps private insurance companies honest and keeps premiums affordable."



Republicans on the committee say the bill will end up being too costly to taxpayers. The committee is set to pore through more than 564 proposed amendments to the legislation. Audie Cornish, NPR News, the Capitol.



ACORN, the community group that's come under intense fire in recent weeks has named former Massachusetts Attorney General Scott Harshbarger to conduct an inquiry into its operations. NPR's Pam Fessler reports.



ACORN has been widely criticized after an undercover video showed some of its workers advising a couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute on how to evade the law. The non-profit says it's asked Scott Harshbarger to look into how the group provides services for low-and moderate-income people so it can avoid similar problems in the future. Harshbarger is a Boston attorney and has been discussed as a possible appointee to fill Ted Kennedy's vacant Senate seat. Though have a lot of competition looking into ACORN's operations, the Justice Department’s inspector general is investigating what grants the group received from his agency, and several states have also launched their own inquiries. Pam Fessler, NPR News, Washington.

New government index out today shows more signs of stabilization in the housing market. The monthly index from the Federal Housing Finance Agency shows that nationwide home prices rose 0.3% in July from the previous month.



On Wall Street today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 51 points, closing at 9,829. The NASDAQ was up eight points. The S&P 500 rose seven points.

The brother of one of the three hikers being held in Iran said today he hopes Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad brings the three with him when he visits the United Nations this week. Ahmadinejad, who has recently angered the West with inflammatory statements including his continued claims the Holocaust never happened. He is slated to address the General Assembly tomorrow. US State Department officials said today there is no reason to think the three hikers would be accompanying the Iranian president. Three University of California Berkeley students were detained after they strayed into Iran while hiking in Iraq in July.



Former Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress has been sentenced to two years in prison. The former New York Giants receiver was charged with weapons possession after shooting himself at a nightclub. NPR’s Robert Smith has more.



Burress stood in a Manhattan courtroom. His wife and young son sat behind him. Burress spoke softly, apologizing for his mistake and then he was led out of the court room to start serving a sentence. The accident had already ended his career with the New York Giants. Burress snuck an unlicensed gun into a Manhattan nightclub. The gun went off; the bullet went through his thigh. Originally Burress was charged with multiple gun counts but he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge. With time off for good behavior, Burress will likely to serve 20 months in prison. He says he hopes to resume his NFL career when he gets out. His former teammate, Antonio Pierce, who was with Burress that night and drove him to the hospital, was not indicted. Robert Smith, NPR News, New York.



Parts of Georgia remained underwater today. Authorities say at least eight people have died as a result of flooding in the southeastern US. The victims included a Georgian toddler swept away after a stream tore the family’s trailer in two and several motorists whose car was washed off a roadway. A Tennessee man is still missing.

Meanwhile it’s not just the US to set out ambitious climate change goals. China today pledged to plant enough trees to cover an area, the size of Norway, as part of a broader effort to counter greenhouse gas emissions.

set out: to explain ideas, facts, or opinions in a clearly organized way, in writing or in a speech.

align 的意思不对,而且 align oneself with连用

不知道bright那个图是哪里截的呢?

我听来听去没set out的音。这个version不知可否接受:
meanwhile, it's not just the US to these hours' ambitious climate change goals.....

 ,没想到讨论这么热烈,我觉得npr应该没有original script,brightu的截图应该也是听写的吧,现在不少网站都是直接copy的putclub。

 

又听了一遍录音,看看下面这个是不是更符合听力原文的读音和逻辑。

meanwhile, it's not just the US that is onward with ambitious climate change goals.....

 

另外

Republicans on the committee say the bill will end up being too costly to taxpayers. The committee is set to pour through more than 564 proposed amendments to the legislation. Audie Cornish, NPR News, the Capitol.

 

个人觉得pour through在这里更贴切点,

 

pour through something

to flow freely through something.
 
"pore through" is this case is more reasonable. It means they are going to examine every amendament carefully...
see the link below , might give you a better understanding.

Thanks for you all.
But I still think I heard the word "design"
Meanwhile it’s not just the US to design ?? ambitious climate change goals. That's what I heard.

呵呵,是的,如果你认定哪个句子中有哪个词,听的时候,你的思维就会无意中往那个方向走,这么分析吧:首先,你仔细听that肯定是没有疑问,因为相对来说是蛮清晰的,至于你说的design,本来has outlined的连读也不应听成design,但Jack Speer确实有这个本领困惑听众,你仔细听,that后面你能听到一个H 开头的单词吧??(如果一遍听不出来,多来几遍,几遍还不行,过个半小时再来),还有你再仔细听下,ambitious前面有个-ned 的读音吧,所以to design是不行的。。。
