20080906NPRNEWS:

 

John McCain's first campaign stop after the GOP convention was a red, white and blue slice of Americana。As a picturesque street in Cedarburg, Wisconsin was transformed into McCain Street, USA.


slice of Americana 很好理解,就是美国历史,美国文化,美国特色的一部分。


red, white and blue 可以暗喻好几个意思:

首先,美国星条旗是有红白蓝三种颜色构成。

其次,红白蓝也是Republican Party 的logo也是有红白蓝三种颜色构成



最后,Republican Convention召开的时候,地上也放了很多red, white and blue balloons



我觉得可能后两种意思可能性大一点。

 20081017NPRNEWS:

 

前通货监理官Eugene Ludwig的这段话怎样理解:

 

  "Home and hearth became the consumers’ ATM machine, as home equity and other consumer loans leveraged the American consumer to the hilt."


home and hearth: home and family


leverage: v. in business, to leverage a company or investment means to use borrowed money in order to but it or pay for it. leverage就是杠杆效用,经常用在金融上,指举债操作,如「leverage buyout」就是公司通过举债来买一下另一个公司。类似于汉语的的四两拨千斤。


home equity: 家庭住房贷款


to the hilt: in full, completely


因为美国人通过家庭住房贷款和其他消费贷款将自己的消费能力放大到极致,所以他们的家庭住房变成花钱的提款机。

原帖由 phoedi 于 2008-12-9 10:46 发表 Unlike other foreign nationals, Mr. al-Marri is the only suspect to be held on US soil as opposed to Guantanamo Bay and elsewhere.这句不懂。。。为什么是as opposed to?有人能解释一下不?


举个例子理解

你说我是个girl,但我其实是个boy

A: You are a girl.

B: I am a boy, not a girl. (口语)
    I am a boy, as opposed to a girl. (书面语)

原帖由 jxzhope 于 2009-1-8 11:11 发表 路透社将 deputy attorney general 和 associate attorney general 都译成“司法部副部长”似乎有点问题,,这两者一定有所区别吧?


wiki上说的很清楚的,我来copy&paste,都是副职,一个是二把手,另一个是三把手。Assistant Attorney General 反而是对这两个副职负责。

In the Federal Government of the United States, the Attorney General is a member of the Cabinet and as head of the Department of Justice is the top law enforcement officer and lawyer for the government. The attorney general may need to be distinguished from the Solicitor General, a high Justice Department official with the responsibility of representing the government in the Supreme Court. In cases of exceptional importance, however, the Attorney General may choose to represent the government himself or herself in the Supreme Court.


Deputy Attorney General (DAG) is the second-highest-ranking official in a department of justice or of law, in various governments of the world. In those governments, the Deputy Attorney General oversees the day-to-day operation of the department, and may act as Attorney General during the absence of the Attorney General.

In the United States, the Deputy Attorney General is appointed by the President.


The Associate Attorney General is the third-ranking official in the United States Department of Justice. The Associate Attorney General advises and assists the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General in policies relating to civil justice, federal and local law enforcement, and public safety matters.[1][2] The Associate Attorney General is appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate.[3] The incumbent Associate Attorney General is Kevin J. O'Connor.


Many of the divisions and offices of the United States Department of Justice are headed by an Assistant Attorney General.

The President of the United States appoints individuals to the position of Assistant Attorney General with the advice and consent of the Senate.[1] United States Department of Justice components that are led by an Assistant Attorney General are:

Assistant Attorneys General report either to the Deputy Attorney General (in the case of the Criminal Division, the Justice Management Division and the Offices of Legal Counsel, Legislative Affairs, and Legal Policy) or to the Associate Attorney General (in the case of the Antitrust, Civil, Civil Rights, Environmental, and Tax Divisions and the Office of Justice Programs).

US consumer prices posted their smallest increase in more than 50 years in 2008. This as a sagging economy kept inflation in check.


"post" here means to officially record and announce information about a country's economic situation.


If something or someone is held in check or is kept in check, they are controlled and prevented from becoming too great or powerful.


美国消费者价格增长为五十多年来最低,疲软的经济使得通货膨胀持续走低。
