US Protesters Mark Iraq War Anniversary伊战五周年美国各地举行反战示威Demonstrations against the war in Iraq have been held across the ed States on the fifth anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion. Several thousand protesters gathered near major landmarks and federal buildings in Washington. 美国领导的伊拉克战争五周年这一天,美国各地举行了反对伊拉克战争的示威游行。几千名抗议示威者在首都华盛顿的主要景点和联邦政府大楼附近举行集会。In a rolling flourish of activity, protesters gathered near the White House, the Capitol, the Internal Revenue Service, and the American Petroleum Institute among other well-known landmarks to voice their anger over the continuing war in Iraq. Among them: New York resident Jim Anderson, who traveled to Washington to take part in the demonstrations.  在声势浩大的示威游行活动中,抗议示威者们在白宫、美国国税局和美国石油学会以及其他著名景点附近集会,以此表达他们对持续进行的伊拉克战争的愤怒。在抗议示威人群中,纽约居民安德松从纽约赶来华盛顿参加这次示威游行。"There are a lot of people out there who have no idea how much the war is costing us in terms of lives, in terms of damage to the Iraqi people and their culture, and in terms of direct cost to the American people in both appropriations and economic stress," he said.  他说:“还有许多人不知道,这场战争牺牲了多少条生命,给伊拉克人民和他们的文化造成了多大的损失,这场战争也直接消耗了美国人民的金钱,这包括战争拨款和经济困难。”Polls have shown a gradual erosion of popular support for the war effort in Iraq since Saddam Hussein's ouster. The low-point for approval of the war came a year ago, when opinion surveys showed roughly seven of 10 Americans opposed.  民意调查显示,自萨达姆.侯赛因被推翻,民众对伊拉克战争的持率在逐渐下降。对伊拉克战争的持率在一年前下降到最低点,当时的民意测验显示,10个美国人中有大约7个反对伊拉克战争。Although a majority of Americans continue to disapprove, pessimism over the war's chances of success appears to have moderated slightly since President Bush ordered a troop surge that is believed to have brought about a decrease in bloodshed in Iraq over the last nine months. 虽然大部分美国人继续反对伊拉克战争,但是自美国总统布什下令实行增兵计划后,民众对战争获胜的可能性所持的悲观态度稍微有些缓和。据信,布什总统的增兵计划在过去9个月里使伊拉克的暴力活动减少。But improvements on the ground in Iraq do not impress Sheila Morris, an educator from Minnesota who stood with a group of demonstrators near the White House. 但是,伊拉克地面战争的进展并没有影响来自明尼苏达州的教育人士莫里斯对战争的看法。莫里斯与一群游行者一起站在白宫附近举行抗议示威。"I know three people who have died in Iraq: a friend of mine's son and two of my son's friends," said Morris. "I blame the [Bush] administration and I also blame the Congress for just laying low [not acting to end the war] and not paying attention." 莫里斯说:“我认识的人中有3个人死在伊拉克:我的一个朋友的儿子和我儿子的两个朋友。我把这怪罪于布什政府,我还怪罪国会没有采取行动停止战争,也没有关注此事。”Polls show a majority of Americans favor withdrawing from Iraq. But surveys also show that, among those who want to bring the war to an end, opinion is split on whether to withdraw immediately or do so gradually over a period of months or years.  民意调查显示,大部分美国人赞成从伊拉克撤军。不过调查还显示,在持停战的人中,在是否立即撤军还是在几个月或几年内撤军的问题上存在着意见分歧。Asked about warnings by analysts that a sudden U.S. troop pullout could trigger a bloodbath in Iraq - and asked whether the ed States bears responsibility for the safety of the Iraqi people in the post-Saddam era - she says, "I do not know." 当记者问莫里斯关于分析人士所警告的立即撤出美军会造成伊拉克发生暴力血腥事件,以及美国是否应当为萨达姆死后的伊拉克人民的安全负责任时,莫里斯的回答是“我不知道”。She does, however, believe that it is important to voice her opinion through demonstrations. 不过她相信,通过游行来表达她的观点是非常重要的。"I do not know if it [demonstrating] affects public opinion, but it keeps the awareness there," she said. 她说:“我不知道游行是否会影响民意,但是游行会让大家继续关注这件事。”Similar protests were mounted in cities, towns and college communities across the country. 美国全国的许多城市、城镇和大学社区举行了很多类似的抗议示威活动。200803/31334

Scripts:The race for the high-end consumer is on. BMW is putting in in the high gear on the green. CN auto reporter Phil LeBeau has this tough assignment once again this morning. Ah, I didn't even think about that, Dr. Phil, go forward, Dr. Phil. Joe, anytime you can spend the morning at Cog Hill, watch the sun rise like this, pretty good gey. I'm here with Tom Purves, the president of BWM North America the man who is in charge of BMW in North America. We are gonna talk about the BMW championship in a little bit and the reason that we are here. But first, I wanna ask you about auto sales, August numbers are gonna be reported later today, and you have the first numbers from BMW, and you had a blockbuster month. Tell me about that. Yes we did,I mean we had over 26,000 BMWs sold and this is about 18% better than last year which for us is preciously great, we are delighted. And we had extremely good sales of our Mini brand as well, over 4000 vehicles so it's been a record August for us.So you were looking at sales being up roughly 20% year over year, year to date coming in to August you're up roughly 8 %, you've heard the same commentary out there that consumers are pulling back, people are not going out and buying new cars and trucks. Yet you are not seeing that, why?Well, first of all, I think anybody who has got great new products is doing well in what is essentially a flat market. we are seeing some delinquencies with our financial service's company, ah, slightly up on last year. But I really do believe that the package that we are offering the consumers the moment is remarkable. We are one of the, we are the only brand that has full maintenance included in the price of the car. And I think we are the smart buy at the moment.You're up, Mercedes is up, Lexus is up, are the luxury brands ,are you insulated from what you are seeing in the economy right now in terms of people saying it is not the right time to buy a new model?Classically, the luxury brands have some insulation and you see a turndown in the higher volume products before you do in the luxury market. so I've, some extent, been expecting to see a reduction in demand and I am delighted in the fact that we are not seeing it at BMW at least not as August 2007. And you told me that back in March of last year when you started to see the data about housing turning down you expected ultimately to see a slowdown,and yet we are only seeing that with mass brands at this point. Yes,and classically, property foretells the story for the car business. On the other hand, what we are seeing with property is that it is in sectors, in locations, is not totally all across the markets, and we have some very very strong markets where we are just seeing business continue. I know Joe Kearney has a question for you,Tom. Joe, go ahead.I do, and it's a long term question, Phil and Mr. Purves you think BMW, you think performance. you think you are gonna go here to here with some power and with some speed. Long term you think carbon footprints, you think Prius, you think hybrid. Does BMW have to reposition itself with the, with... since that riding is on the loaf and it's not going to be all about performance down the road. No, I don't believe so, I mean we've taken this whole business of sustainability very seriously for many many years now. No a car company has done more to improve the fuel efficiency of its product range of last ten years, and BMW in fact, we just won an accolade last week on that very subject. One of the reason we had such a good Auguest we had a great new BMW 3 series with a 2.8 litre, 3 and half litre engines, brand-new engines. They not only produce more power but they are actually more fuel- efficient at the same time. So I believe that together with work we are doing to introduce diesels into the ed States next year. We have hybrid technology coming along and here at Cog Hill we have four of our hydrogen part 7 series which are really the cars of the future. We are in pretty good shape. So long as we deliver to the customer better fuel- efficiency as well as better performance , and BMW is a clever buy. Alright, um, If you heard where the Nicholson's playing next week?No, You knew the question was coming. I knew the question was coming I'm sure Phil will do the right thing and when I speak to the commissioner later today. I'm sure I am gonna hear some good news. (Tom Purves, the...) Sounds like he's gonna play.I hope so.The president of BWM North America Tom, thank you very much for joining us today on Squawk Box. BMW championship kicks off, tees off I should say Thursday. They've aly got some good news with auto sales for August and certainly they're gonna enjoy that here. Guys?Back to you. All right.Notes:tee off: to get startedon the loaf: in a situation of straying or wabbling200807/43997

  But even this was not enough to satisfy the desire of Genghis Khan. He wanted something more, something his army could not give him, which is why in 1222, this man traveled towards Genghis Khan's court. He was a revered Taoist monk. From him, Genghis Khan sought just one thing."I told him how my life was a divine mission. I'd been sent to Earth to conquer the world. I spoke of the prophecies, the battles, my ambitions, my age. I asked what medicine he had brought to prolong my earthly existence."It was only then the monk realized Genghis Khan was asking for the secret elixir of eternal life. Unfortunately, the monk could only offer him advice about prolonging life through sexual abstinence(禁欲), but not immortality. There is nothing to indicate that Genghis Khan took the monk's advice. Recent scientific evidence suggests that perhaps one in two hundred men alive today can trace their genetic lineage to Genghis Khan. Four years later, he embarked on one more campaign of conquest, into China. According to legend, these were the last words of Genghis Khan."I've conquered for you, a large empire. But my life was too short to take the whole world that I leave to you."He appointed his son Ogodei(窝阔台) to succeed him as Khan. Genghis Khan died without having achieved what he believed was his destiny- to conquer the entire world. In the years after his death, his sons carried out his wish, doubling the size of the empire. They returned to Europe and invaded Russia, Poland and Hungary. But in 1242, approaching Vienna, the new Khan died. Mongol law decreed that all chiefs return to elect a new leader, and Europe was spared the Mongol terror.A century later, his mighty empire began to crumble. His reputation has made him one of history's immortals, a reputation enhanced by the mystery of his burial. It is said that every witness to his funeral cortege was executed to keep the site of the tomb secret. Today almost eight centuries later, the burial place of Genghis Khan remains undiscovered. There is no grave, no mausoleum, no monument to this bloodthirsty conqueror, the most successful military commander the world has ever known. elixir: a magical or medicinal potion, especially (in former times) either one supposedly able to change metals into gold or (also elixir of life) supposedly able to prolong life indefinitelylineage: a sequence of species each of which is considered to have evolved from its predecessorcortege: a solemn procession, especially for a funeral200809/50533

  ---Mandy Moore was a recording star who made the jump to leading lady in movies like "A Walk to Remember" and "Saved". Now she is back on the big screen, as a scheming contestant of an American Idol type talent show in American Dreamz.~~~ Video Clip ~~~Is it them? Is that them?Don't run.Sally Kendoo?Yeah.We are from American Dreamz.I know.And we are here to tell you...You've been selected to perform on the show. What are you doing?Yeah!Sorry, screaming.Yes! Yeah!Stop. Stop. Stop screaming. (Dude) Stop. I'm really sorry. We're gonna have to do this, all over again. You're gonna have to go inside and come out and jump for joy all over again, because we didn't get it on the camera.OK. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~---I love that scene. Mandy Moore, good morning. Good morning.---So first of all, I have to ask, are you an American Idol fan? I'm a huge American Idol fan, like Hugh.---Regular watcher?Regular viewer, definitely.---In this film, American Dreamz, you play Sally Kendoo, who seems all sweet and innocent, and actually the director describes her as basically a sociopath.She is kind of sociopathic. Um, she kind of rides at fine line between being very sweet(s) and sort of a little sour, too. She's just very driven and manipulative and she sort of knows going in that, she even gets on the show, she knows how to win. She's such a fan of the show. She's, she's intent to win it.---Yeah. Is it fun for you? You kind of have a wholesome image. I guess you could say, is it fun for you to play the bad girl?It is fun to play the bad girl. I think as an actress, you (are) sort of trying gravity towards these roles. Because there is so much media, and so much more fun. And it's kind of, I liken it to free therapy, because I get to go home at the end of the day, end of the day, I'm not sort of bringing any of that with me. I leave all the darkness and anger at work.---Em, Paul Weitz, the director said one of the reasons that he hired you--he wanted an actress who could hold her own against formidable actor like Hugh Grant.I can't believe...---Is that daunting? I can't believe Paul will say something sweet like that about me. Um, he's amazing. And honestly, I was so flattered to,to work with him, cause I think he is just such an incredible film maker. But then, the opportunity to work with,with Hugh as well, he is the epitome of a movie star and I never sort of got over that nervous energy around him, like cause he just is an intimidating figure, nobody means to be. But he is just, he's Hugh Grant. He's so handsome and charming and every woman onset just like melted a little ant every time he walked by. So...---But maybe that kind of work for the character (It did work) and you are supposed to be a little bit intimidated. Yeah. For a good portion of the movie, I'm supposed to sort of be intimidated by his character.---Does he play the Simon Cowell character?He does. And I play a contestant and I sort of make it through to the end, but at the end of the film, we are supposed to be a little bit more friendly with each other. And that's what the real acting must require cause I was very nervous around him. ---Yeah, understandably, understandably, I will be too. Em, you've said that this film is about our obsession with pop culture. And I want to know how you handle that in your own life. I googled Mandy Moore fan sites and came up with a million hits. Wow.---How do you handle that, that cult of celebrity thing?It's, er, it's very flattering. I think at the end of the day, er, I'm really lucky. I have a wonderful family. I love my parents and I think they raised me and my brothers right. And I sort of feel like there is this on-off switch, like I'm at work right now. It's great, I love what I do, I feel really lucky. But at the end of the day, I'm gonna go home. And everything is normal and you really don't feel any different from anyone else. So, I guess that's sort of how I'm trying to handle it right now. But, I don't know, it's odd.---And you keep your personal relationships to yourself and you're dating Zack Braff, but you say I don't wanna talk about it.Yeah. You know, I've made a mistake in,in past relationships.They've obviously been very happy and of course then you would wanna tell being entire world. But..I.. it sort of takes a little piece of that, you know intimacy and,and relationship kind of away from you and it's not, it's not adores anymore. So I've kind of learned my lesson and it's ok. I'll be a little quieter about it this time go around.---It's great to see you. I know this is you. You have five movies going on right now, back to back to back.The last year, I have, yeah,done five films. It's pretty crazy, just really lucky and kind of going with it, I guess.--- That's fantastic.Thank you.---Mandy Moore, great to talk to you.Great to talk to you too.---American Dreamz. 200809/48545But even if there had been water, life doesn't start overnight. Even a simple microbe is the product of complex chemical systems that take millions of years to evolve. Had the water lasted long enough for life to form?Well, when we look at the history of life on Earth, it appears to start very quickly, maybe a hundred million years. Now that seems like a long time, but for a planet that's short. So I would guess that if there was water on Mars for a couple of hundred million years, then life had a good shot at getting started there. And soon they found evidence that water had been there for millions of years. It was all because of one very important picture. Sent back in December 2000, it was a vast formations of sedimentary rock. Sediment is basically made of sand, and could only have been deposited over millions of years by a huge body of water, like a lake or an ocean. It showed that there had not only been masses of water, but that it had been around easily long enough for life to form. The sediments on the surface are now dry and exposed. If they ever had contained life, it cannot possibly have survived. However, scientists hope that microbes deeper down might still be alive, frozen in the ground. To find the actual organic remains of a Martian organism, we are gonna need to go to the frozen material. In the ice life might have been preserved, frozen in a state of suspended animation. No one at this stage could know if microbes, formed millions of years ago, could have survived on Mars. But there are indications that this really is possible. Antarctica, the closest place on Earth to conditions on Mars. More extreme even than Iceland, it's the coldest place on our planet. Until a few years ago, no one thought that anything could survive being deep frozen for millions of years. But research here has helped change that. sedimentary rock: Rock formed at or near the Earth's surface by the accumulation and lithification of fragments of preexisting rocks or by precipitation from solution at normal surface temperatures. Sedimentary rocks can be formed only where sediments are deposited long enough to become compacted and cemented into hard beds or strata. They are the most common rocks exposed on the Earth's surface but are only a minor constituent of the entire crust. Their defining characteristic is that they are formed in layers. Each layer has features that reflect the conditions during deposition, the nature of the source material (and, often, the organisms present), and the means of transport200809/48546Just to be absolutely clear...只是要百分百明确……One thing I wasnt sure of was...有一件事我不太确定……Good luck!好运!Mr Ingle, I dont think weve met yet, Im Anna.英格尔先生,我想我们还没见过,我是安娜。Hello.

  Katie Couric: For nearly 3 years, Matt and Christine Roe saw double with their identical twin daughters, and when doctors told them Christine was pregnant again, and this time with triplets, they simply couldn't believe it. And for good reason the odds of that happening are about 1 in 15 million. All 7 members of the Roe family join us now from their home in Eau claire Wisconsin, Christine, Matt, Alexandra, Hailey, Jacob, Tylor, and Nicolas. Good morning to all of you.Christine amp; Matt: Morning.Katie Couric: So, Christine, I mean you must, must have been pretty surprised when you got the news that you were carrying triplets after aly having identical twins at home. What was your reaction?Christine: It was just that complete shock. I think, my husband says having the twins were a little more shocking than having the triplets, being first time parents with the girls, but still, working on three boys is a lot of work.Katie Couric: Now, so good, your daughters are identical twins, and your sons are identical triplets, is that right?Christine: Yeah!Katie Couric: So that is a 1 in 15 million chance of that happening. I understand Matt, that you are pushing for quadruplets when you found out they were triplets.Matt: They said it's gonna be three. It might as well be four. It won't change anything.Katie Couric: What is it that Matt and Christine then to go from having 2 kids to having 5 kids in one fell swoop, how tough has it been to tell your girls apart Alexandra and Hailey?Matt: Ah, that's been fairly easy for us, cause ALex's always been a little bit heavier than Hailey.Katie Couric: Are you gonna give her a complex, Matt?Matt: I don't think she minds.Katie Couric: Meanwhile what aboutChristine: With the boys though, we haven't found anything yet with the boys that we can really tell them apart with yet, so mark on the bottom of the foot from now.Katie Couric: Really? Is that what you are doing, really?Christine: Yeah. we got initials, each initial on the bottom of their foot with the shopping markers so..Katie Couric: Can we see it? Can you show us one of their feet right now?Christine: I could probably get Jocabson.Matt: Ok.Katie Couric: That is a very good idea to put sharpy because it doesn't come off when you give them a bath, right, it takes a while.Matt: Yeah!Takes a little bit.Christine: Yeah, it can take a couple of days,Katie Couric: And they're 6 weeks old now, right?Matt: Yeah.Katie Couric: How much did they weight when they were born Matt, as Christine undoes the little one Zee?Matt: They were about 3 and a half pounds.Katie Couric: Wow!

God!Katie Couric: By the way, Jayvy Levins who is our audio person remarked about how amazing Christine, you look after having these 3 babies only 6 weeks ago.Christine: Thank you.Katie Couric: So, well, congratulations on your new family, we are very very happy for you, and thanks for talking with us this morning what's ALex or, who is that?

  Are you a hyper-parent? Do you do a little bit too much for your kids, make their lives just a little too easy? If this sounds like you, believe me, you're not alone. We called up with a couple of parents in New York who also admit that they are guilty as charged. I am guilty of doing a little too much for my daughter.I take her pretty much where she wants to go. If she needs to be driven to a party or a friend outside, change my plans and take her where she wants to go. I think it's very hard, I feel that my parents didn't do enough for me, so I am overcompensating.It's inevitable that you compare what you do for your own kids to what other people are doing, and you wonder who's right and who's got the right balance.Linda Fears is the editor-in-chief of the Family Circle magazine. Hi Linda. Hi,Ann, how are you?That sounds pretty familiar on a lot of working parents I know, try to overcompensate, so when is, it's too much, what are we doing too much for our kids?If you try to fix or eliminate any problem your child might face then you're doing too much, and the truth is , it's really easy again and the pattern nobody wants their kids to be hurt or sad, but the truth is if your child is always safe from the situation, he is going to start to feel like that there is something wrong with him, like he is not smart enough, or not strong enough to handle situation on his own. So it's not good for kids. And I can't imagine it's good for parents, either. No, it's really not good for anybody, um, and like I've said, you know, it's very easy to fall into that pattern and the reason why a lot of parents end up doing this, is because they ,from birth, a lot of parents feel like they have to orchestrate their child's life.Right, it's amazing, kids in grades got people all to think about what college are going to. They have met a million activities, and you see it's really wrong to expect your child to excel in everything they do and try to achieve that.Well, that's not, that's right, that's not the point in having your child do a lot of activities, so he will be great at everything, there're very few kids that are great at everything. But it's important to expose them to a lot of different activities, so they can find out what their passion about, what they love, because those are the activities that they are going to try their heart decide, and ultimately excel at.Right, let them try, let them fail, let them do all that, use some great tips for parents, and you say, one of the things you do , when you wanna jump in and solve the problem, as you really got to ask yourself whose problem is this anyway. Well, that's right. And a lot of parents you know, think back when they were kids, when they were in uncomfortable or hard situations, and then projected that onto their own child. So, for instance, if you weren't invited to the cool kid's party, and you see that's potentially happening to your daughter, you know, you need to say to yourself you know,who is my worry about, me or my kid?En, and that's does a tough thing, and there is a lot of people experiencing up with parties. What about staying behind the scenes, it's a little bit, pulling back and stay in the background?Right, again, very hard, and it might kill you to see your kids sitting on the bench during the basketball game week after week, but instead of running to the coach and dealing with yourself, talk to your child, you may be surprised to find out your child's gonna say, you know what, I am just happy to be on the team, I don't really mind not playing so much in every game. But if he is bothered by it, then it's your job as a parent to encourage him to go talk to the coach. And you say it really help your kids hone decisions-making skills? Can you give us some examples of that ?That's right, that's right. You know, life-long skills to be able to, to feel confident about making your own decisions, so for example, if you have a teenage daughter who wants to get some new clothes, decide on the budget, take her to the store, let her pick out her clothes, within certain parameters, You know,so she's making decisions on her own, er, same goals for it there's social problem at school, and instead of rushing to help your child deal with it, wait a couple of days, see if she can handle them on her own.Also for friendship problems kind of try that,just, just...Try to hold back just a little bitYou see though when your child is disappointed, you really can't help ease them through that, so we can we can show empathy obviously for a child's feeling?Of course and your kids' feelings are gonna be hurt, when you go to the school, and you see that his child, his science project does not compare to his friend's whose chemical engineer father did it for him. But what you need to say to him is, you know what? I'm so proud of you, you did a great job, you did these all by yourself, and believe me , your teacher knows the difference between a child's work and an adult's work. And you say it really rewrite the script about this setbacks. Help your child turn it around, right?That's right, so if your child concerned and said, I failed my maths test, I'm so stupid. Say you know what, remember two weeks ago, when you did well on your test, you can do that again. So you're not gonna immediately say oh, Gee, you know,we'd better call the tutor, this is gotta be a problem here, you wanna make your child feel like, you know what, next time you are gonna do better, and here's how you gonna do it. Help them keep all in perspective, and we need to keep parenting in first perspective, That's right, we need to just calm down, and see, cause the truth is the kids need to learn ,you know, it's ok to make mistakes. (That's life!),you know ,it's life, and if you failed your math test, if you don't make the soccer team, it's not the end of world. Linda Fears, thank you so much, you're always so sensible. 200809/47574

  Paralympics Open in Beijing北京残奥会召开 开幕式相对低调 China is following its successful hosting of the Olympics with a lower-key opening ceremony for the Paralympics, an international sporting event for handicapped athletes, that runs until September 17. 继中国成功举办奥运会后,残疾人奥运会的开幕式比较低调。残奥会是国际残疾人运动员的体育赛事,这次残奥会将在9月17号结束。Chinese President Hu Jintao officially declared that the Paralympic games had begun. 中国国家主席胡锦涛正式宣布残奥会开幕:“我宣布北京2008年残奥会开幕。”The opening ceremony for the Beijing Olympics involved a lavish and elaborate performance that presented thousands of years of Chinese history. 北京奥运会开幕式有一场华丽盛大的表演,呈现了中国的几千年历史。In contrast, the opening ceremony for the Paralympics was mostly about the athletes. 相比之下,残奥会的开幕式更多的是关注运动员本身。Four thousand physically-disabled athletes from around the world entered the Bird's Nest stadium, either on foot or in a wheelchair. 来自世界各地的4000名残疾运动员进入北京的“鸟巢”体育馆,有的步行,有的坐着轮椅。Chinese women in bright pink frilly dresses led each of the 146 national delegations. Groups of young Chinese dancers, dressed in blue shorts and white baseball caps, danced to the music and waved red flags. 身穿亮丽粉红色褶边裙的中国女引导员引领146个代表团入场。一群群身穿蓝色短裤、头戴白色棒球帽的中国年轻人伴随着音乐翩翩起舞,挥舞红旗。The president of the International Paralympic Committee, Philip Craven, praised these games as a Paralympic milestone. 国际残奥会主席克拉文称赞这届运动会是残奥会的里程碑。"These games will have more athletes, more competing nations and more sporting events than ever before," he said. 他说:“这次残奥会的运动员、参赛国家和比赛项目都会比过去多。”Earlier in the day, President Hu hosted visiting dignitaries for lunch in the Great Hall of the People. 当天早些时候,中国国家主席胡锦涛在人民大会堂设午宴招待来观看残奥会的政要。President Hu says the Beijing Paralympic games are an opportunity for China to further promote a humanitarian spirit and safeguard the rights of disabled people. 胡锦涛说,北京残奥会是中国促进人道主义精神、保障残疾人权益的一个机会。One notable name on the guest list was Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who shook hands and posed for pictures with the Chinese president. 在嘉宾名单中有一个名字引人注目,就是伊朗总统艾哈迈迪内贾德。他和胡锦涛握手并一起拍照。In Beijing Saturday, residents watched the Paralympic torch make its way through the city to the stadium. 星期六,北京居民观看了残奥会火炬在全城传递接力、最后到达体育馆的过程。Chinese state television showed excited spectators waving flags and cheering for the torch. 中国官方电视台播放了激动的观众挥舞旗帜,为火炬欢呼的镜头。One spectator told CCTV that just as the Olympics have improved China's position in the world, he is hopeful the Paralympics will enhance China's position as a powerful sports country too.  一个观看火炬传递的人告诉中国中央电视台说,就像奥运会提升了中国的国际地位一样,他希望残奥会也会提升中国作为一个体育强国的地位。There are 20 sports under competition during the Summer Paralympics. These include swimming, sailing and judo, as well as things like wheelchair basketball, wheelchair tennis and wheelchair rugby. 这届夏季残奥会设有20个比赛项目,包括游泳、帆船、柔道、以及轮椅篮球、轮椅网球和轮椅橄榄球等。The first day of competition is Sunday, and athletes will use many of the same venues that were featured in the Olympics. 第一天的赛事星期天开始。运动员将使用奥运会使用过的许多场地。200809/47631。

  Zimbabwe Power-Sharing Talks Reportedly Resume津巴布韦两党恢复权力分享谈判 Officials in South Africa say the stalled talks between Zimbabwe's ruling party and the opposition have resumed Friday. The announcement came as the Zimbabwean government said it was lifting a ban on humanitarian agencies working in the country. 南非官员说,津巴布韦执政党和反对党星期五再次开始谈判。与此同时,津巴布韦政府宣布取消不准人道救援机构在津巴布韦运作的禁令。South Africa's Deputy Foreign Minister, Aziz Pahad, announced the resumption of the Zimbabwe talks more than two weeks after they stalled over power sharing between President Robert Mugabe's ZANU-PF party and two parties of the opposition Movement for Democratic Change, MDC. 南非副外长帕哈德宣布津巴布韦双方恢复谈判。在此之前,由于穆加贝总统的执政党与反对派民主变革运动中两个党派在分享权利的问题上僵持不下,谈判停顿了两个多星期。"Today's talks must now try to see what else can be done to get a consensus among all three parties on the way forward. So if it takes them longer, I hope they will stay longer and resolve these outstanding issues," he said. 帕哈德说:“今天的谈判必须争取找到还可以采取什么措施来使三个派系达成共识,以便向前迈进。所以如果会谈需要更多时间,我希望他们留在这里更久一些,解决这些未决的问题。”The MDC won a majority of the parliamentary seats in general elections in March and the leader of its main faction, Morgan Tsvangirai, won the most votes in the presidential poll. 民主变革运动在今年3月的大选中取得了议会多数议席,它的主要派系领导人茨万吉拉伊在总统选举中也赢得了最多的选票。But Tsvangirai did not win a 50 percent majority and withdrew from the runoff election against Mr. Mugabe, ZANU-PF supporters of waging a campaign of violence that killed more than 100 activists. 但是茨万吉拉伊没有赢得50%的多数票,而且他退出决选,以抗议穆加贝及其执政党持者发起的暴力行动,其间有100多名活动人士遇害。Since then, the two sides have been negotiating an end to the crisis. They reportedly were close to an agreement in which Mr. Mugabe would remain as head-of-state and Tsvangirai would occupy a newly created post of prime minister. 从那时以来,双方一直在谈判如何结束危机。据报导,他们曾接近于达成协议,让穆加贝继续担任国家元首,茨万吉拉伊出任新设立的总理。But the talks collapsed two weeks ago reportedly over the distribution of powers. Mr. Mugabe Wednesday threatened to form a Cabinet without the opposition after being heckled the day before during the opening of parliament. 但是谈判两个星期前陷于瘫痪,据报导是由于权力分享问题。穆加贝星期三威胁要组成将反对党排除在外的内阁。之前一天,他在议会开会时遭到质询。The Zimbabwean government Friday said it was lifting a three-month ban on private humanitarian organizations that had been providing food, health care and other aid to millions of Zimbabweans. 津巴布韦政府星期五说,准备解除3个月以来禁止民间人道救援组织向津巴布韦民众提供食品、医疗照顾等各种援助的禁令。The Red Cross has issued an urgent appeal for donations, saying five million Zimbabweans, or one-half of the population, were facing food shortages. 红十字会曾经发出募捐紧急呼吁,他们说,有500万津巴布韦民众、也就是津巴布韦一半人口,面临食品短缺。South African official Aziz Pahad noted that the international community has drawn up an economic recovery plan that could help ease the humanitarian crisis in Zimbabwe."But unless there's a political solution you don't have the necessary framework in order to implement an economic recovery program. So the talks are crucial, all talks are crucial now, in order to find a way forward," said Pahad.Zimbabweans have been hard hit by an economic crisis characterized by hyper-inflation, 80 percent unemployment and shortages of food and fuel.200808/46913

  The champagne lifestyles of our top footballers're the stuff of gossip columns and TV soaps. Now though we know the size of their fortunes. David Beckham is the richest footballer in the list-worth 75m pounds. Arsenal's Dennis Bergkamp is next, with a paltry 37m in the bank. Michale Owen is in third place with a fortune of 30 million pounds. But the man who's made a big difference to this year's list is Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. He tops it with a fortune of 10 billion pounds, but his money has put another four people into the ranks of football super-rich, including Jose Mourinho who's worth 20 million pounds, putting him ahead of Sir Alex Ferguson. But some think the glory days could be coming to an end. We've been living in an era of bubble for the last few years, and we start to see the signs of it changing again. I want that happens, then I think the natural effect is the players are gonna have half their salaries cut, or at least clubs are going to stop paying as much as they do. Super-rich footballers are though a relatively new phenomenon. The late Johnny Haynes was the first player to earn 100 pounds a week. That was in 1961 and despite his fame, George Best's earnings were fairly modest. It's thought he made around 15, 000 pounds from playing, getting endorsements in 1967. Today that would be worth 170, 000 pounds or rounded 2 weeks' wages for David Beckham . Obviously seeing how popular George Best was in the 1960s and how crowds flocked to see him, it's quite frightening to see how much he was earning, as little as 10 thousand pounds a year, 15, 000 pounds a year when he was at his peak, winning the European Cup for Manchester ed. So they were still not earning a great deal more than the average worker. Most of the players' money comes from TV deals, but it's thought the big money contracts of pit meaning Mr. Beckham and his collegues will have to make a few savings in the years to come. Dark Lyttle, SKY News.本期难点paltry: Lacking in importance or worth在文中,是说格坎普挣的比起小贝来,就有点微不足道了。本期生词: flock: To congregate or travel in a flock or crowd200805/39181
