The U.S. Department of Energy's Idaho National Laboratory is sending one robot where it has never gone before, a highly radioactive environment.The talon system robot is an ordinary commercially available robotic, but engineers at the INL are retro fitting it so it will be able to measure radiation levels where danger lurks.Director of the INL's science and engineering division David Miller said they want to use it so someone isn't put in the line of danger."There is a little phrase that you choose to use, if you use a robot when something is dull, dirty or dangerous."Some workers at the Fukushima plant have aly been exposed to high levels of radiation and burned.With camera's shielded from radiation, the robot will be able to pinpoint the exact location of the radioactive areas within the plant to help detect leaks.The INL has never had such a nuclear crisis so for them putting this robot in a highly radioactive environment is somewhat of an experiment. “We've used with these kinds of robots systems to do environmental measurements where there might have been an area inside a building or something that we wanted it to have some sort of surveys done but probably never at the kind of levels that we will be talking about now."With so many environmental clean-up projects, the INL's robotics program has been able to grow over the last two decades."So we developed the capabilities to again, send robots and other kind of measurement systems in the areas where we didn't want to put people at risk."【生词注释】radioactive adj. 放射性的talon n.爪, 手,爪状物retro n. 制动火箭lurk vi.潜藏radiation n.辐射shield v.保护; 庇护pinpoint v.准确地定位crisis n.危机 environmental adj.环境的; 有关环境的decade n.十年capability n.能力at risk 冒险201110/157882哈利·波特系列进军游戏市场 “《哈利·波特》游戏将成为绝佳的电影互动延伸,并拥有全新的动作感,” 华纳兄弟互动总裁Martin Tremblay表示,“EA正在创造一个玩家们喜爱的哈利·波特游戏,这款游戏将带给玩家他们所向往的新游戏元素,”“我们和EA在哈利·波特全系列电影游戏方面的合作进行得十分愉快,”哈利·波特电影制作人David Heyman表示,“《哈利·波特》的视觉效果非常忠实于电影,绝对会给每个玩这款游戏的人提供身临其境的游戏体验。”In today’s TECH bytes, DVRs are about to become much more widesp. The Supreme Court declined to hear a case attempting to block so-called network DVRs. That technology allows you to store programs on your cable company’s computers instead of a set-top box in your home, and that means current cable boxes could be converted to DVRs without any new equipment, making the technology cheaper and more widely available. The latest installment of the Harry Potter series will be in movie theaters in just a couple of weeks. The new game hits store today. Does it have the same magic as the movies? Richard Fishman of Parenting.com tested it out for us. For fans of the Harry Potter series, this is a really exciting game list. you can move through hard walls, you can move through all these different locations there. You can play as one of the three stars. One of the really cool things about this game is that if you’re playing on the way, you get to use the way mode as a wonder. So you really feel like you are fighting that dwarf, and you know, point the wonder and shooting the spells, it’s very exciting. Another really fun thing about the Harry Potter games is that they are equally appealing to both boys and girls and the parents. It’s an activity that families can do together. So it’s really fun that way. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is available for all major gaming councils. Finally, are worrying that your kids are spending too much time online? Well, it turns out you’re probably surfing the web more than they are. A new study finds teens spend 11.5 hours online each month versus 29 hours for the average American. Of course, part of the reason is that adults are browsing at work while kids are at school. Another reason seems to be the kids spend a lot more time on their cellphones, sending hundreds of text messages each month. 07/76943World Stocks Down Again; US Retail Sales Drop美欧亚股市下滑 美国零售额急挫 Stock prices were down again Wednesday, on Wall Street and in Europe and Asia. Investors seem to doubt that plans to help troubled financial institutions will be enough to fight off a deep recession. 华尔街,欧洲和亚洲股票价格星期三再次全线下滑。投资者似乎怀疑挽救陷入困境的金融机构的计划是否足以避免经济陷入严重衰退。Wall Street followed Europe and most Asian exchanges in losing ground on Wednesday.

Newser's accident of mirthNewser Charlotte Green descends into a fit of giggles while announcing a death on Radio 4's Today programme.Descending into a fit of the giggles whilst trying to deliver serious news is a newser's nightmare, but that's what happened to B radio's Charlotte Green today. She fell victim to that performers' enemy "corpsing". The term was first used by theatre folk, but today touched that bastion of middle-class values Radio 4. Here is our arts reporter Stephanie West. In the world of comedy, corpsing has always been an acceptable hazard, for Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, who practically lived to reduce each other to a hip, it was a moment the audience's waited for. But today, unplanned giggles did for the composure of Radio 4. The sedate voice of Charlotte Green, voted the most attractive on the air waves by Radio Times' listeners, was reduced to a strangulated whimper, after she heard the earliest recording of a human voice played in her news bulletin. "The Award winning screen writer Abby Mann has died at the age of 80,he won an Academy Award in 1961 for "Judgment at Nuremberg", Abby, excuse me,sorry....Abby Mann also....." The fight the final news item was about the death of an award-winning screen writer, only added to the horror, but she struggled on for more than 30 seconds more. "....for a film which featured....." Judging by an audible man snort and news, one of the anchors had his head in his hands, we understand Jim Knocktie and Edward Sterton were rendered unable to help. It's ten minutes past eight. Corpsing is Thespian slang for murdering a scene with uncontrollable laughter, but there was sympathy at THE KING`S HEAD Theater in Islington today, where the artistic director described corpsing as contagious as yawning, with a remedy that would surely only have exacerbated Charlotte's woes. One of the techniques to stop yourself from corpsing, if you feel a corpse is coming, obviously you look down, you do anything you can not to corpse and not to pass the contagion on, and one thing you can do is swallow really hard or you can pinch yourself, or you can you know pull your finger, anything to distract your mind from the laughter that's about to erupt from you. And while surrendering to uncontrollable mirth might look like fun as illustrated in Rikky's guy to corpsing here, many performers say, they regard it as a weakness. And it's not till you are there and the camera is switched on ,and something is said and it set you off and you can't stop. "Give my pen." "Yes,take it."bastion: n. If a system or organization is described as a bastion of a particular way of life, it is seen as being important and effective in defending that way of lifecorpsing: n. Corpsing is a theatrical slang term used to describe when an actor breaks character during a scene by laughing or by causing another cast member to laughstrangulated: adj. if someone's voice sounds strangulated, they sound as though their throat is being pressedwhimper: n.A feeble intermittent cry expressive of fear, pain, or distress, a low complaining sound.exacerbate:v.If something exacerbates a problem or bad situation, it makes it worse. contagion:n.If something exacerbates a problem or bad situation, it makes it worse. 200811/54678

人们常说咖啡喝多对身体有害。但是,多喝咖啡可以降低得中风的概率哦!你知道吗?On this morning's Health Watch, coffee and strokes. A recent study found the more cups of coffee you drink, the less likely you are to suffer a stroke. Here with more details, our own Dr. Jennifer Ashton. Good morning!Good morning Julie!Now tell me more about the study and who funded this study?Right. So put another one in the win column for the health benefits of coffee. This was a study funded actually by NIH, done out of the UCLA Stroke Center, reputable. And actually it looked at 20,000 people, coffee drinkers, non-coffee drinkers, found that those who drink coffee have less stroke, and that stroke risk actually decreased the more coffee they drink. It's very interesting.So how much coffee are we talking about?Well, probably more than you and I have a day. They actually saw the largest benefit with those who consume six or more cups a day. So we're talking a considerable amount.Does that mean I have to drink six cups a day to get the benefits of maybe not having a stroke?Well, this is one of those things we have to take it, you know, it.. really in conjunction with everything else. This is one potential benefit, and again we know that there can be risks seen with the more coffee that we consume. People are variably, more sensitive or less sensitive to higher amounts of caffeine, so it's just one piece of the puzzle.What, do we know the "why" behind this?You know they are starting to look at it more. One of the theories is that there are anti-oxidants in coffee and tea by the way that may be protective. But it also may be that there are something in coffee or caffeine that works synergistically, or in conjunction with other factors, and therefore prevents stroke, so it's really evolving.So does this study mean this applies to all caffeine, like let's say, someone really likes Red Bull, or tea, or chocolate?Right, not, no, exactly. Chocolate, I love that. Not known if it does have the same effects when you are talking about soda, chocolate, energy drinks. Right now, it's coffee and probably tea as well. All right. You mentioned that there are other risks. Tell me all the, all the things that are currently that we know in the win column for having coffee.Right, so the possible, and then the others. And then the others.05/70853

BANNED Pres. Bush InterviewThis is a I found of an Irish TV interview with President Bush. I later found out that this interview was not shown on American television because it was banned! Why you ask, take a look and see.Mr. President, I know your time is tight. Can I move you onto, em, to Europe? Are you satisfied that you are getting enough help in Iraq from European countries? You have come together, you are more friendly now. But they are not really stepping up to the plate with help, are they?Well I think, first of all, most of Europe supported the decision in Iraq. If, really, what you were talking about is France, isn't it? And ,and they didn’t agree with my decision; they did vote for the UN Security Council resolution that said disclose disarm or face serious consequences. We just had a difference of opinion about when you say something do you mean it? And, but, nevertheless, no doubt in my mind. President Chirac would like to see a free and democratic and whole Iraq emerge. And it’s the same in Afghanistan. They’ve been very helpful in Afghanistan. They are willing to forgive death in Iraq. But most European countries are very supportive, even very, you know, participating in the reconstruction of Iraq. And how do you see the handover going? The next few weeks are going to be crucial. Can democracy really flourish with the violence that’s going on? A hundred Iraqis dead today Mr. President. Yeah. I don’t like death either. I mean, you keep emphasizing the death and I don’t blame you. But all that goes to show as the nature of the enemy. These people are willing to kill innocent people. They are willing to slaughter innocent people to stop the advance of freedom and so the free world has to make a choice. Do we cower in the face of terror? Or do we lead in the face of terror? And I’m gonna lead in the face of terror. We will not let these terrorists dash the hopes and ambitions of the people of Iraq. There is some kind of attitude that says ‘oh gosh, the terrorists attack. Let’s let the Iraqis suffer more.’ We are not gonna let them suffer more. We are gonna work with them. And I’m most proud of this fellow, prime minister Alavi, he’s strong and he’s tough. He says to me, ‘Mr. President. Don’t leave our country. Help us secure our country so we can be free.’Indeed, Mr. President, just to get back to that. Can I just turn to the Middle East (Sure.) and you will, be discussing at the EU summit and the idea of bringing democracy to the broader Middle East. (Right.) Is that something that really should start though with the solving of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis?Well I think, first of all, you’ve got a democracy in Turkey. You’ve got a democracy emerging in Afghanistan. You’ve got a democracy in Pakistan. I ..But shouldn’t that be on the top of the list? ..Please, please, please remember, ok, it will be better if you let me finish my answers, and then, and then you can follow up if you don’t mind. And what I’m telling you is that democracy can emerge at the same time. That the democracy can emerge in the Palestinian states. I’m the first American president to have called for the establishment of a Palestinian state. The first one to do so. Because I believe that it’s in the Palestinian people’s interests. I believe it’s in the Israel’s interests. And yes, we are working but we can do more than,you know, one thing at a time. And we are working on the roadmap with the Quartet to advance the process down the road. Like Iraq, the Palestinian and the Israeli issue is gonna require good security measures. And if it more even handed this from America?And we are working on security measures, in America, I’m the first president to ever have called for a Palestinian state. That’s, to me, sounds like a reasonable balanced approach, and, but I will not allow terrorists to determine the fate, as best as I can, to determine the fate of people who wanna be free. Mr. President, thank you very much for talking to us.You are welcome.02/63082
