From NPR News in Washington, I’m Giles Snyder

 

Authorities are urging people to stay off the roads in parts of the mid-Atlantic region. Blowing snow is keeping visibility to a minimum. Pennsylvania’s governor has shut down large parts of three major highways because of the storm, and Washington, D.C.’s fire chief says it doesn’t seem like we’re getting much of a break, as the latest storm comes just a few days after one of the heaviest snowfalls in D.C.’s history. In Baltimore, dangerous blizzard conditions have city officials taking urgent measures to protect public safety. Donna Marie Owens from member station WYPR reports.

 

Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has instituted phase three—the highest designation of the city’s emergency snow plan. This means that only police, fire and other authorized vehicles are permitted on city roadways. Residents who drive their cars while the emergency plan is in effect could face arrest. Baltimore and other Maryland jurisdictions have experienced unprecedented snowfall beginning with two to three feet last weekend. The blizzard has caused downed trees, power outages and other problems including a roof collapse at a Baltimore County firehouse, and damage to some poultry houses on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. For NPR News, I’m Donna Marie Owens in Baltimore.

 

On the eve of a European Union crisis meeting over the debt problem in Greece, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou promised his government will take all necessary measures to reduce the public deficit. Eleanor Beardsley reports.

 

Speaking in Paris after a lunch with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Papandreou said Greece would reduce its deficit by the necessary 4% in 2010. That task will not be easy with Greek public sector workers in the streets striking and protesting any austerity program. The head of the French parliament said that European countries needed to show solidarity with Greece and not let it go bankrupt. But EU governments were initially reluctant to help Greece out of a debt crisis it created itself, and now appear ready after European markets fell and the euro slipped to an eight-month low against the US dollar. There’s also fear that instability could spread to other financially-troubled eurozone countries, Spain and Portugal. One analyst said markets would react very negatively, if tomorrow’s EU meeting does not produce a concrete plan to buttress Greece. For NPR News, I’m Eleanor Beardsley in Paris.

 

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke has begun to outline the Central Bank’s exit strategy from the emergency measures it put in place to combat the financial crisis. Bernanke was to give testimony today before a House panel. He released his prepared remarks, even though the hearing was canceled because of the blizzard in Washington. Bernanke said the Fed would likely begin tightening monetary policy by removing cash from the financial system before it turns to raising interest rates, but he said that may be months away.

 

On Wall Street, stocks are down this hour. The Dow’s down 16 points at 10,043; the NASDAQ down two at 2,149.

 

From Washington, this is NPR News.

 

Severe winter weather is threatening one of the world’s biggest annual movements of humanity. Millions of Chinese are heading home for the Chinese New Year. The year, the Tiger, starts on Sunday. NPR’s Anthony Kuhn reports from Beijing.

 

Blizzards have hit six provinces in north China, forcing the closure of two dozen highways and several airports and stranding tens of thousands of passengers. Weather forecasters are predicting more heavy snows and falling temperatures through tomorrow. Today marked the peak of the annual pre-holiday travel season. An estimated 210 million people are expected to travel by train during the holiday. The weather has raised concerns about energy supplies, as two of the worst-hit provinces are also big coal suppliers. It has also brought back memories of 2008’s Chinese New Year when severe weather crippled infrastructure and stranded millions of travelers in southern China. Anthony Kuhn, NPR News, Beijing.

 

It’s questionable whether American skier Lindsey Vonn will be able to compete in the Vancouver Olympics. Vonn said today that she’s worried about a badly bruised right shin. She said she injured it in a training run last week during a pre-Olympic practice in Austria. Vonn has won the World Cup twice and is the reigning champion. She is considered a contender for multiple medals.

 

The commander of space shuttle Endeavour says he’s impressed with how spectacular and shiny the International Space Station is. The shuttle’s crew arrived at the station early today and has been mingling with the space station crew. Endeavour is carrying the station’s last two main components, a new room and an observation deck.

 

Again stocks are down this hour. The Dow is down now seven points at 10,050.

From NPR News in Washington, I'm Giles Snyder.


Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke is giving new indications of what lies ahead. The outline of the Central Bank strategy for removing the stimulus is provided to support the U.S. economy during the financial crisis. NPR's John Ydstie reports.

The exit strategy came in a statement prepared for a congressional hearing postponed because of the blizzard in Washington. The Fed. chairman detailed the number of ways the Central Bank will avoid overheating the U.S. economy by removing the huge amount of stimulus injected once the recovery is self-sustaining. Among the new tools the Fed. has is the authority to pay interest rates on over a trillion dollars in reserves the U.S. banks have on deposit with the Fed. Raising that interest rate would entice banks to leave the funds on deposit rather than lending them out to businesses and individuals. But Bernanke made it clear that for the time being, the Fed. will continue stimulating the economy to support the recovery. John Ydstie NPR News Washington.


New figures on the nation's trade deficit are offering more evidence of a recovering economy. The government says the deficit widened down expectively in December to more than 40 billion dollars, that's more than 10 percent jump in the trade gap. It came as both exports and imports showed gains. Much of the deficit's jump comes from a big gain oil imports.


It's a travel of nightmare in the Mid-Atlantic. The latest winter storm hit the region as bringing heavy snow and high winds. Blizzard warnings extended into New York City where schools are closed for only the third snow day in 6 years. The streets of downtown Philadelphia are largely deserted after the mayor urged people to stay home. Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell has shut down most of the major arteries in the southeastern portion of the state. Scott Detrow of member station WITF in Harrisburg explains.

"They are going to be blocking the offramp. The electronic displays on the highway are telling motors to get off the road. And Pennsylvania State Police and National Guards that had been mobilized will be escorting drivers off the road that they are already driving on the highways. " Scott Detrow of Member Station WITF.

And Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley is urging people to stay off the roads. "We have not had any fatalities on our highways which is pretty remarkable when you consider the conditions that our State Police's been working under along with highway crews for the last several days. We would like to keep it that way. But we need the public self in order to stay off the highways. "


All the snow is causing more problems and just travel part of the roof of a Smithsonian Institution building outside Washington D.C. has been brought down. A spokeswoman says it doesn't appear that there's any damage to artifacts from the National Air and Space Museum, but she says that officials have not yet been able to go inside because the building is unstable.

Stocks have turned positive this hour. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up 6 points at 10,065 and the S&P is up a fraction. This is NPR.


Hundreds of people remain trapped in snowbound vehicles after a series of deadly avalanches in Afghanistan. Afghan officials say about 2600 people have been rescued so far, but that emergency teams have also recovered more than 150 bodies. Afghan army troops have been digging through huge snowdrifts trying to rescue people from buried vehicles along a key road across the Hindu Kush mountain range, connecting the Indian subcontinent to Central Asia.


The American Psychiatric Association today unveiled plans to draft the diagnosis of Asperger's disorder from its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. NPR's Jon Hamilton has more.

Since 1994 the manual known as the DSM has included the separate category for Asperger's. But under the draft of the next edition, Asperger's and other disorders with the traits of autism will be folded into a single category called: Autism Spectrum Disorder. Scientists say the move make sense because there has been no reliable way to decide which children have Asperger's and which have autism. Both disorders involve difficulty with social interaction and repetitive behaviors. But some people with Asperger's say they are uneasy with being placed in a category that includes people with severe intellectual and behavior problems. The American Psychiatric Association plans to consider reactions to the draft before issuing the next edition of the DSM in 2013. Jon Hamilton NPR News.


More than 400,000 cars have been added to Honda's 15-month-old recall for faulty airbags. Honda's replacing the driver's side air bag in five models  because they can deploy with too much pressure. Meanwhile, Toyota Prius owners in Japan are rushing their hybrid vehicles to dealers to fix a glitch in the antilock brake system.

亚斯伯格症候群Asperger's syndromeAsperger's,简称AS)是神经发展障碍的一种,可归类为自闭症 (Autistic Spectrum Disorder) 其中一类。在外界一般被认为是“没有智能障碍的自闭症”。在精神病学常用的美国心理学会(AmericanPsychologicalAssociation)的诊断基准 (DSM-IV-TR) 当中,则称之为亚斯伯格障碍。致病原因目前尚未清楚,但研究显示,遗传基因、生物化学、过滤性病毒、妊娠期和分娩时出现的一些问题,都可能是亚斯伯格症候群的致病原因。亚斯伯格症候群的发病率为0.7%,即平均每一百名新生婴儿会有0.7名婴儿是病患者。本病多见于男生,发病率约为女生的十倍。


精神疾病诊断与统计手册  精神疾病诊断与统计手册(The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,简称为DSM)由美国精神医学会(American Psychiatric Association,简称为APA)出版,是一本在美国与其他国家中最常使用来诊断精神疾病的指导手册。

  虽然这本手册受到心理学家与精神病学家的广泛接受,但是当中的精神疾病列表却备受争议。其中最有名的就是手册第二版(简称为DSM-II)中将同性恋列为精神疾病的一种;这个条目在1973年由APA投票通过予以移除(请参看同性恋与心理学条目)。
