PM Plans To Create 100,000 Jobs Gordon Brown has unveiled plans to create up to 100,00 new jobs in a bid to combat the recession. The PM's pledge comes in an interview for today's Observer magazine. Sky's Niall Paterson reports. People don't want to start the New Year with the bang and Gordan Brown's big idea suddenly grabs the attention, creating new jobs at a time when many are losing theirs, all these are the begining of what looks like being one of the toughest period in modern British history. The Prime Minister told the Observer: I want to show how we will be able to, through public investments and public works, create probably 100,000 additional jobs... schools,hospitals, environmental work and infrastructure, transport... We are not going to stand by and allow nothing to be done when people are facing difficulties. Sooner public money will be used to found public works, providing as many as 30,000 jobs, repairing schools, helping hurted construction firms . There will be farther investments in the environmental and digital industries. Mr. Brown believes the world's economy will double over the next 20 years and Britain needs to take advantage. And further measures are promised to get banks' lending once more. Suddenly the creation of the jobs through the public works has a familiar feel to it's President Roosevelt New Deal in the 30s, was designed to lift the America out of the economic Dow Johns/but many students feel that that plan in fact prolongs the great depresion and with plenty of people who say Gorge Brown's plan will have lilttle or no effect. Unemployment currently stands at an alarming 1.9 million, the highest has been since 1997, experts see it could get as high as 3.1 million in two years time, in those circumstances, 100,000 extra jobs which could drop in the ocean. "I frankly think that the made-works scheme of this kind simplly don't work in the modern age, and I think Gordan Brown is simply desperate to make sure that the figure of 3 million is not reached." That plan's goal is a cautiously ambitious one, but the New Year's resolutions are notorious difficult to stick to, you are on Sky News, Wesminister01/60972

Watch The Queen's Christmas Message Watch Her Majesty's annual Christmas message to the ed Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Christmas is a time for celebration. But this year it is a more sombre occasion for many. Some of those things which could once have been taken for granted suddenly seem less certain, and naturally give rise to feelings of insecurity. People are touched by events which have their roots far across the world. Whether it is the global economy or violence in a distant land, effects can be keenly felt at home. Once again many of our service men and women are serving on operations in common cause to bring peace and security to troubled places. In this 90th year since the end of the First World War, the last survivors recently commemorated the service and enormous sacrifice of their own generation. Their successors in theatres such as Iraq and Afghanistan are still to be found in harm's way in the service of others. For their loved ones, the worry will never cease until they are safely home. In such times as these we can all learn some lessons from the past. We might begin to see things in a new perspective. And certainly, we begin to ask ourselves where it is that we can find lasting happiness. Over the years, those who have seemed to me to be the most happy, contented and fulfilled have always been the people who have lived the most outgoing and unselfish lives; the kind of people who are generous with their talents or their time. There are those who use their prosperity or good fortune for the benefit of others whether they number among the great philanthropists or are people who with whatever they have, simply have a desire to help those less fortunate than themselves.What they offer comes in the form of what can easily be recognized as service to the nation or service to the wider community. As often as not, however, their unselfishness is a simply taken-for-granted part of the life of their family or neighborhood. They tend to have some sense that life itself is full of blessings and is a precious gift for which we should be thankful. When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat, instead they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future.I think we have a huge amount to learn from individuals such as these. And what I believe many of us share with them is a source of strength and peace of mind in our families and friends. Indeed, Prince Philip and I can reflect on the blessing, comfort and support we have gained from our own family in this special year for our son, The Prince of Wales.60 years ago, he was baptized here in the Music Room at Buckingham Palace. As parents and grandparents, we feel great pride in seeing our family make their own unique contributions to society. Through his charities, The Prince of Wales has worked to support young people and other causes for the benefit of the wider community, and now his sons are following in his footsteps. At Christmas, we feel very fortunate to have our family around us. But for many of you, this Christmas will mean separation from loved ones and perhaps reflection on the memories of those no longer with us.I hope that, like me, you will be comforted by the example of Jesus of Nazareth who, often in circumstances of great adversity, managed to live an outgoing, unselfish and sacrificial life. Countless millions of people around the world continue to celebrate his birthday at Christmas, inspired by his teaching. He makes it clear that genuine human happiness and satisfaction lie more in giving than receiving; more in serving than in being served.We can surely be grateful that, two thousand years after the birth of Jesus, so many of us are able to draw inspiration from his life and message, and find in him a source of strength and courage. I hope that the Christmas message will encourage and sustain you, too, now and in the coming year.I wish you all a very happy Christmas.200812/60008

  EU Ministers Discuss Funding Environment Projects欧盟召开环境会议拟减少温室气体European environmental ministers met in Luxembourg to discuss ways to significantly cut greenhouse-gas emissions - without hurting economies struggling with the current financial crisis. 欧盟各国环境部长在卢森堡开会,商讨采取什么措施能大幅度减少温室气体,而同时又不伤害正在金融危机中挣扎的各国经济。The European Union members discussed goals agreed to last year by the 27-member bloc to slash greenhouse-gas emissions by 20 percent from 1990 levels by the year 2020.  欧盟成员国讨论了去年27个成员国一致同意的目标,也就是到2020年之前把温室气体排放量在1990年的水平上减少20%。But the European Union is facing another problematic climate as the world wrestles with the worst financial crisis in decades. Italy and several other eastern European countries worry they will not be able to afford making the proposed emissions cuts. 可是,随着全世界都在应对几十年来最严重的金融危机,欧盟正处于另一个困难的环境之中。意大利和几个东欧国家担心,他们无法达到计划中减少废气排放的目标。Italy and Poland have warned they may veto the final EU climate change agreement if it is not to their liking. During the meeting in Luxembourg, Italian Environment Minister Stefania Prestigiacomo told reporters the agreement was unsuitable in its present form.  意大利和波兰警告说,如果他们对欧盟气候变化协议感到不满意,他们有可能否决最后达成的协议。在卢森堡召开的这次气候变化会议期间,意大利环境部长普雷斯蒂贾科莫对记者说,这项协议目前的形式是不合适的。But other ministers said they believed the final climate-change agreement would be largely unchanged. 不过其他部长认为,这项气候变化协议最后不会有什么变动。The Europeans are racing to finalize their package before a U.N. climate change meeting in December. A number of EU countries, including Britain, along with the U.N. climate-change panel, believe it is important the Europeans stick to their greenhouse cutting goals and show leadership in this area.  欧盟国家正在竭力争取在联合国12月召开气候变化会议之前最后确定它们的气候变化协议。包括英国在内的几个欧盟成员国以及联合国气候变化委员会都认为,欧盟国家按计划执行其温室气体减排目标,在这方面显示领导作用是非常重要的。European environment commission Stavros Dimas also objected to watering down the EU's objectives, as he made clear during remarks to the press this month. 欧盟环境专员斯塔夫罗.迪马斯也反对欧盟降低废气减排目标,他这个月向新闻界表态时明确表示了这点。"I am confident that an agreement will be settled by the end of this year and keeping to this timing is important, since we need to give to the international community a clear signal the European Union is on target to meet its own climate commitments," he said. 迪马斯说:“我有信心,今年年底之前将达成协议,遵守这个时间表非常重要,因为我们需要给国际社会一个明确的信号,也就是欧盟在履行它对气候变化的承诺方面是按计划进行的。”The EU meeting coincided with a new report by the environmental group the World Wide Fund for Nature claiming that climate change was increasing faster than predicted, with serious consequences in Europe and elsewhere. 欧盟举行这次会议的同时,环保组织世界自然基金会公布了一份新的报告。报告称,气候变化的速度要比预期的越来越快,对欧洲和其他地区产生严重后果。200810/53448。

  Dozens of world leaders met at an Egyptian Red Sea resort for the 15th summit of the 118-nation Non-Aligned Movement. But the 53-year-old group has lost much of its significance since the end of the Cold War. 来自世界各国的几十位领导人在埃及红海旅游胜地聚集一堂,参加不结盟运动的第15届首脑会议,该组织共有118个成员国。但是,这个已经有53年历史的组织自从冷战结束后就失去了它的重要性。It was an exceptionally large turnout of international leaders, with more than 50 heads of state from every continent attending the summit in the Egyptian Red Sea port city of Sharm el-Sheikh.   参加这次会议的国家领导人特别多,来自各大洲的50多位国家首脑出席了在埃及海滨城市沙姆沙伊赫举办的第15届不结盟首脑会议。The outgoing head of the organization, Cuban President Raul Castro told the opening session of the summit that a new international financial system is needed to protect developing nations from the global economic crisis.   该组织即将离任的领导人古巴主席劳尔.卡斯特罗在首脑会议的开幕式上说,为了在全球经济危机中保护发展中国家需要一个新的国际金融体系。He went on to say that a global solution must be found to solve the crisis.   他接着说,必须找到一个全球性方案来解决这一危机。He said the movement has reaffirmed its insistence that all nations of the world must be part of the search for effective and just solutions to the present economic crisis. He said in Havana it is believed that developing countries are the most affected by the global economic crisis. He added that 100 million people around the world, especially the third world, suffer from illiteracy, unemployment, hunger, poverty and curable diseases.   他说,不结盟运动重申,它坚持认为所有国家都应该为解决当前经济危机参与寻找有效和公正的解决办法。他说,在哈瓦那,人们认为发展中国家受到全球性经济危机的影响最大。他补充说,全世界有1亿个人,特别是第三世界的人,承受文盲、失业、饥饿、贫困和可治愈疾病所带来的痛苦。Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who is chairing the summit and who will become the next head of the Non-Aligned Movement, sounded pragmatic about addressing problems facing developing nations.   埃及总统穆巴拉克主持了这次首脑会议,他将成为不结盟运动的下一届领导人。他在发展中国家面临的问题上听起来很务实。He said the movement must accommodate itself with the existing international reality and be nimble and efficacious in tacking its goals.   他说,不结盟运动必须适应当前国际的现实状况,并在达到目标的过程中要很灵活和有效。U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon also addressed the summit, urging greater effort to shelter the economies of developing nations and to make the "international system more fair and balanced."   联合国秘书长潘基文也在首脑会议上发表了讲话,他敦促为保护发展中国家的经济作出更多努力,同时使“国际制度更加公平和平衡。”In his address to the summit, Libyan leader Colonel Moammar Gadhafi recalled the developing stages of the Non-Aligned Movement until the end of the Cold War.   利比亚领导人卡扎菲上校在首脑会议上讲话时回顾了不结盟运动在冷战结束前的各个发展阶段。Colonel Gadhafi complained the U.N. Security Council does not fairly represent the nations of the world and insisted this is a threat to world peace.   卡扎菲上校抱怨联合国安全理事会没有公平的代表世界各国,他坚持认为这是对世界和平的一种威胁。He also urged world leaders to allow Iran to pursue a peaceful nuclear program, calling it "unfair" to prevent it from enriching uranium. But he added Iran must not be permitted to develop nuclear weapons.Libya he insisted, had been on the point of developing its own nuclear weapon.   他说,利比亚曾经到了要发展自己核武器的地步。He said that Libya "crossed the Red Line" and came to the point where it was able to build an atomic bomb. But, he added.   卡扎菲上校说,利比亚“越过了红线”,到了它能制造原子弹的水平。"The world had changed, and we asked ourselves against whom we were going to use the bomb? So, what was the point of building it? It was costing us more than it was worth, so we stopped."   “但是,他说,世界已经变了,所以我们问自己,我们要对谁用原子弹? 制造原子弹有什么意义呢?他说,花费的钱是不值得的, 所以我们就停止了。”Other topics, such as terrorism, global warming and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict were also addressed by the Non-Aligned leaders. The two-day summit is to end Thursday.   不结盟运动的领导人还讨论了恐怖主义,全球气温变暖和以色列和巴勒斯坦冲突等问题。为期两天的首脑会议将在星期四结束。07/77964Bruce Lee 'Lost' Interviewan unedited 25 minute interview with Bruce Lee (1940-1973) on the Pierre Berton Show. Recorded on 9th December 1971 in Hong Kong, Bruce Lee ... all raquo; is seen being himself, speaking candidly and informally about his life, his martial art beliefs and philosophy. Through the programme Bruce's supreme confidence, charisma and focus provide a tremendous insight into the young Bruce Lee - the man behind the legend.Well, I mean, definitely, in the beginning, I had no intention or whatsoever, that what I was practising and what I’m still practising now would lead to this, [Yeah, I know] to begin with. But martial art has a very, very deep meaning as far as my life is concerned because as an actor, as a martial artist, as a human being, all these I have learned from martial art.Maybe for our audience who doesn’t know what it means, you might explain exactly (All right) what you mean by martial art. Right. Martial art include all the combative arts like karate, judo, Chinese kung fu, or Chinese boxing whatever you call it , all those, you see like aikido. I can go on and on and on. But it’s a combative form of fighting, I mean it’s not, some of them became sport but some of them are still not, I mean, they are used, for instance, kicking to the groin, jabbing fingers in the eyes and things like that.No wonder you are successful in it. Chinese movies are full of this kind of action anyway. They needed a guy like you could....[Violence man]So you didn’t have to use a double when you moved in the motion picture role here, you did it all yourself? Can you break five or six pieces of wood with your hand or your foot?I’ll probably break my hand and foot.But tell me a little bit, you set up a school in Hollywood, didn’t you? For people like James Gardner, Steve McQueen and the others.[Yes.] Why would they want to learn Chinese martial art, because of a movie role? Not really, most of them, you see, to me, at least the way that when, I mean, when I teach it, all type of knowledge ultimately means self knowledge. So therefore they’re coming in to, I mean, for, and ask me to teach them not so much of how to defend themselves or how to do somebody in. Rather, they want to learn to express themselves through some movement, be it anger, be it determination or whatsoever. So in other words, what I'm saying therefore is that he’s paying me to show him in combative form the art of expressing the human body.Which is acting in a sense,[Well..] or it would be a useful tool for an actor to have?It’s, I mean, I might, it might sound too philosophical, but it’s unacting acting or acting unacting, if you...You’ve lost me.I have, so what I’m saying, actually you see, I mean, is a combination of both, I mean here is the natural instinct, and here is control. You are to combine the two in harmony, not, if you have one to the extreme, you’ll be very unscientific.02/62420Australia should be a republic: PMAustralia should move to be a republic when reign of Queen Elizabeth II ends, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard said on Tuesday.Gillard also planned to lead a national debate on republic after the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, 84, ends.The prime minister said that despite being a republican, she understood that Australians had a "deep affection" for the British monarch."What I would like to see as prime minister is that we work our way through to an agreement on a model for the republic," Gillard told reporters in Townsville of Queensland."I think the appropriate time for this nation to move to be a republic is when we see the monarch change."Obviously I'm hoping for Queen Elizabeth that she lives a long and happy life, and having watched her mother I think there's every chance that she will."According to A News, Gillard's comments put her absolutely at odds with Opposition Leader Tony Abbott, who is a staunch monarchist and was at the center of the anti-republican cause in the 1999 referendum, which rejected the notion of change.Since Federation on January 1, 1901, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic political system and is a Commonwealth realm, which has Elizabeth II as its monarch.The comments reveal one of the few areas of genuine difference between the candidates ahead of Saturday's elections, where Gillard is leading Abbott by four percentage points, according to the latest Newspoll.Vocabulary:at odds with: at variance; in disagreement with(争执,不一致)monarchist: 君主制主义者背单词 — 装英语词汇201008/111663

  Harry's visit to troop rehab unitPrince Harry is reunited with a badly injured Royal Marine he trained with before being sent to Afghanistan.Prince Harry has been reunited with a badly injured Royal Marine he trained with before being sent to Afghanistan, every question with that and more today's news. The prince and his elder brother William were touring the Headley Court Rehabilitation Center for injured troops. They met some of the 50 soldiers currently receiving treatment there, among them, 24-year-old Marine Mark Ormrod, who lost an arm and both his legs when he stepped on a mine in Afghanistan. A visit from two royals who talk their language. Soldiers convalescing at Headley Court said the princes were down to earth so much so that the bands are flowed as they lined up for the obligating photo call. Here at the front of **, a comment from one corporal to an amputee, "Prince William even joins in, his suggestion that doubled amputee Marine Mark Ormrod drew a few hand-break turns gets a laugh."But William's boast about his football team's success over the weekend didn't impress his brother. Humors are lighting the mood, but Harry knows more than most what these men have been through. Two soldiers who've stepped on a landmine have been on his untimely flight home from his own tour of Afghanistan. Two injured guys who came back on the plane with us who were essentially comatose throughout the whole way. One who had lost two limbs, a left arm and a right leg. Mark Ormrod was trained with Harry before leaving for Helmand province. He lost both legs and an arm after stepping on a landmine on Christmas Eve. Convalescing here has helped him enormously. It's not a big issue, while I never see someone finishing off themselves, you see them crack on the bottom, smile every day and, get through at it, and then you think, yeah, why not? We are all wanting to get like that, aren't we?. You just crack on certain.The Princes' visit coincides with the fundraising event next month called "City solute", designed to raise enough money for a full-size swimming pool here, a desirable but not essential facility, according to the MAD, so charitable help is needed.It enhances what we do and it really does underline our potential in terms of rehabilitating, the injured soldiers, the sailors and the airmen and rather than, you know, you know if we didn't have the pool. If I had the pool, I could get better quicker and I'll be out of here, and there'll have more space for more serious injuries, I mean,I don't know if you've been told or aware, that there is a waiting list to come in. you know, in this, about month-long.The Princes arrived and left by car today after the last week's quick trip to his girlfriend in an RAF Chinook, Prince Williams....200811/54978The arrest of Wall Street legend Bernard Madoff has clients in a panic that their wealth may be gone.

  When I was about 12 years old, I remember at Christmas one year being ashamed of how much I liked it because of all the presents I got. It's a pretty complicated thought for a 12 year old kid but I had it. I've always liked presents though. People send me a lot of things and I wish they wouldn't but I can't help liking them. Look at this - just a few of the things that have come in recently: this is a bottle of some kind of sauce. Now it's probably very good and from some one who likes me but it could be very bad and from someone who hates me too, so I don't dare eat it. Someone sent me this sports whistle. Why would anyone send me a whistle? The package says it's made of solid brass. It's triple plated and it has an extra sharp tone. Well good for it. But I certainly wouldn't want a whistle that was only double plated and made of brass that wasn't solid. This goes under a door to keep the draft out. Someone's idea of what John McCain and Barack Obama look like. Not my idea of what either of them look like but what do I know? "The American Government In Action" - this is a game. I never cared much for games. There's enough to play with in real life. "The Baseball Dictionary." This book has a lot more than I want to know about baseball. I'm a football fan. Baseball is too caught up with numbers for me. This is a pair of socks; I don't know who they’re for. They come up over my knees. I don’t know what these two bags are for - why would I want two of them anyway? This is called Almond Orange Honey. Seems like a good idea and the bees are certainly done a good job, but I never liked honey. I said I liked fudge and that I never got any good fudge anymore - I haven't had any good fudge in years - so a lot of people sent me good fudge. And I guess it's good. I haven't eaten all if it yet. I said I shine my own shoes. The letter that came with this stuff says it brings leather back to life. Nice to think about bringing leather back to life isn't it? I'll see if this brings my shoes back to life. I just hope my shoes don't eat my fudge.07/78634

  Regulating the internet监管互联网Google's enemies谷歌的敌人The search giant’s antitrust headache gets bigger搜索巨头的反垄断之困日渐增大Jun 30th 2011 | SAN FRANCISCO | from the print editionSINCE the start of this year, Google’s share price has fallen steadily as investors have begun to fret about its longer-term prospects. Now they have another reason to worry. On June 24th the company revealed that America’s Federal Trade Commission (FTC) had opened a broad investigation into its online-search and online-advertising businesses to see if it has abused its dominant position. Some pundits predict that the trustbusters’ tussle with Google could turn as bloody as their battle with Microsoft in the 1990s.自今年初以来,由于投资者开始对谷歌发展远景感到担忧,其股价稳步下跌。如今他们又有了新的担忧理由,该公司在6月24日透露,美国联邦贸易委员会为确定谷歌是否滥用了主导地位,对其在线搜索和在线广告业务展开了广泛调查。一些专家预测,联邦反托拉斯检察官与谷歌的角力可能会变得非常残酷,其激烈程度可能与1990年代对决微软不相上下。The regulators’ move comes at an awkward time for Google, which faces a growing threat from Facebook, the world’s biggest social network. Facebook aims to supplant Google as the main conduit via which people access the web. On June 28th Google hit back, unveiling Google+, a social-network platform to rival Facebook.世界最大的社交网络Facebook意欲取代谷歌成为人们上网的主要媒介,对谷歌的威胁与日俱增,可是恰在此时监管者又对谷歌展开了行动。在6月28日,谷歌还以颜色,发布了社交网路平台Google+,以与Facebook一争高下。Google’s new offering, which is still in trial form, boasts some handy features. It makes it easy to set up separate groups, thus sparing your boss from seeing your semi-clothed and inebriated party snaps. It also lets up to ten people hold a chat together. But this will probably not be enough to get people to abandon Facebook, which benefits from a powerful network effect: people join it because most of their friends aly have.谷歌的新产品(仍处在测试阶段)具有一些方便的功能。它让创建不同的群变得容易,因此不会让你的老板看到你的半裸和醉态熏熏的派对快照,同时它最多还能容纳十个人在一起视频聊天。但Facebook从强大的网络效应受益良多,这可能也不足以让人们割舍它:人们加入Facebook是因为他们大多数的朋友已经加入。Still, Google’s determination to keep innovating has served it well in its core business of search, where it commands nearly two-thirds of the market in America and an even higher share elsewhere (see chart). It is this dominance that has attracted regulators’ attention in America and abroad. Last November the European Commission announced a similarly sweeping review of Google’s operations.然而,谷歌不断创新的决心对其核心搜索业务帮助很大,在这项业务上谷歌几乎占据美国市场的三分之二,而在其他地区甚至拥有更高份额(见图表)。正是这种优势地位吸引了美国和海外监管者的注意。去年十一月,欧盟委员会宣布对谷歌的业务展开类似的全面调查。201107/144255。

  China abroad 中国的海外投资Welcome, bienvenue, willkommen欢迎,欢迎,热烈欢迎America needs to worry about the contrast between its attitude to China and Europe’s美国需要考虑下他自己和欧洲对待中国的态度有何不同Jun 30th 2011 | from the print editionIN EUROPE, the red carpet. In America, a red mist. This week’s tour of European capitals by Wen Jiabao, China’s prime minister, underlined the stark transatlantic difference in responses to China’s economic clout. European leaders, caught up in the euro area’s crisis, want China to buy more of their debt; American politicians worry that it owns too much of theirs. For European politicians the value of the yuan is one worry among many; it sometimes feels like Americans can think of little else. In Europe, Chinese firms are broadly welcome; in America, they are often viewed with suspicion.在欧洲,是红地毯,在美国,是蒙蒙的红雾。中国国务院总理温家宝在这周的欧洲首都之行上,凸显了大西洋彼岸的国家对中国经济实力增强的不同反应。欧洲各国的领导人,被欧元区危机弄得焦头烂额,迫切希望中国购买他们的债券,美国的政客则担心中国蚕食他们的利益;对于欧洲的政客,人民币的价值只是他们担心的一个方面,而在美国却盯着此不放;在欧洲,中国的公司受到广泛的欢迎,在美国,他们却经常被视作动机不纯。Europe’s receptiveness to China is born partly of weakness. Delegations from peripheral euro-zone countries have been flying into Beijing to seek buyers of their debt. Fixers working for Chinese companies report a steady stream of inquiries from cash-strapped European firms. But even among Europe’s stronger economies, the political bias is to promote investment from China, not deter it.欧洲对中国的接纳部分是因为欧洲经济的疲软。欧元区的小国代表团已经飞往北京去寻找债券购买人了,为中国公司工作的调停者已经从那些现金流不足的欧洲公司那里整理出一份详细的咨询报告。甚至是那些强大的经济体,政治的偏见都没能够抑制从中国来的投资。201107/143055

  Israeli Troops Invade Gaza, Fighting Continues以军与哈马斯武装在加沙多处交火 Fighting between Israeli forces and Hamas militants has been reported from several areas in Gaza after Israel launched a ground offensive into the Palestinian territory Saturday evening. Israel says 30 of its troops have been wounded, two seriously and it claims to have killed or wounded dozens of Hamas militants. Gaza officials put the Palestinian death toll from the week-long Israeli operations at around 500. 以色列星期六晚上对加沙地带巴勒斯坦人领土发动地面攻势之后,有报导说,以色列部队和哈马斯激进分子在加沙好几个地方交火。以色列说,有30名军人受伤,其中两人伤势严重,以方同时声称击毙和击伤几十名哈马斯激进分子。加沙地带官员说,以色列一个星期来的军事行动造成大约500名巴勒斯坦人丧生。Israeli soldiers crossed the border under cover of darkness Saturday night and fanned out across areas of the northern Gaza Strip.  星期六晚上,以色列军人在夜色的掩护下跨过边界,挺进加沙北部大片地区。Troops and tanks are reported to have moved into positions, including around Gaza City. Tanks are reported dug in at some former Israeli settlements in Gaza and the military action is reported to have effectively cut the Gaza Strip in two between north and south. 据报导,军队和坦克已经进入包括在加沙城周围的阵地;坦克开进加沙地带过去以色列人的定居点,军事行动实际上已经把加沙地带分割为南北两部分。Israel used its infantry, tanks, artillery, war planes and navy to hit more than 40 targets just overnight.  以色列动用步兵、坦克、炮兵、战机和海军,一夜之间打击了40多个目标。Speaking before an Israeli cabinet meeting Sunday, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the decision to launch the ground offensive was made Friday.  以色列总理奥尔默特在星期天的一次内阁会议上说,发动地面攻势的决定是星期五做出的。Mr. Olmert said the decision was not made lightly and only after months of waiting and after hopes for calm were dashed.  奥尔默特说:“这不是一个轻率的决定,这个决定是在等待了好几个月、对平静的希望完全破灭之后才做出的。”Mr. Olmert vowed that the government did everything before deciding on this operation. "It was unavoidable," he said. 奥尔默特保,政府是在尽了最大努力之后才决定采取这次行动的。他说:“这是不可避免的。”Israel has said all along it had no choice but to launch military action after talks with Hamas on extending a cease-fire broke down in December and militants stepped up rocket fire against southern Israel. 以色列方面一直表示,以方别无选择,只能采取军事行动,因为此前和哈马斯就延长停火举行的会谈12月破裂,哈马斯激进分子加紧了对以色列南部地区的火箭弹攻击。Israel initially launched air strikes just over a week ago, pounding targets it said were linked to Hamas and its infrastructure in Gaza. 以色列是在一个多星期之前开始空袭加沙地带的,轰炸以方所称与哈马斯相关的目标和哈马斯在加沙的基础设施。But, Hamas has remained defiant, warning that it would turn Gaza into a graveyard for the Israelis.Casualties are reported on both sides, including Israeli soldiers, Hamas fighters and Palestinian civilians, including children. 据报导,双方都有伤亡,其中包括以色列军人、哈马斯战斗人员以及巴勒斯坦平民,其中还有一些儿童。According to tallies by medical officials in Gaza the Palestinian death toll from Israeli military operations is now around 500. 据加沙地带的医务人员统计,以色列军事行动已经造成大约500名巴勒斯坦人死亡。01/60445

  Imagine you could find an explanation for anything in the universe from the smallest events possible to the biggest.This is the dream which has captivated the most brilliant scientists and science staff.Now they think they may have found it.The theory is breathtaking and has an extraordinary conclusion that the universe were living is not the only one.设想你能为宇宙中从最小到最大事件这样的每一件事找到一个解释。而这就是最杰出的科学家和很多科学工作者每天都梦寐以求的。现在,他们认为自己可能已经找到了这个解释。这个理论是惊人的而且有着非凡的结论,那就是我们生活的宇宙不是唯一的一个。;There could be an infinite numbers of universes each with a different law of physics.Our universe could be just one bubble floating in an ocean of other bubbles.;可能会有无限量的宇宙,每一个都有不同的物理规律。我们的宇宙可能仅仅是一个漂浮在一片海洋泡沫中的一个而已。;Everything you are about to hear is true,at least in this universe it is.所有你听到的声音都是真实的,至少在这个宇宙中是这个道理。For almost a hundred years,science has been haunted by a dark secret,that there might be mysterious hidden worlds beyond our human senses.Mistakes had long claimed there were such places.They were they said full of ghosts and spirits.The last thing science wanted was to be associated with such superstition.But ever since the 1920s,physicists have been tried to make sense of an uncomfortable discovery.When they tried to pinpoint the exact location of atomic particles like electrons,they found it was utterly impossible.They had no single location.科学一直被一种黑暗的神秘所困扰已经有将近一百年的历史。那就是也许在我们的感官之外存在着隐藏的世界。尽管早已宣称有这样的地方纯属谬论。而这个充满鬼神的地方却一直有人坚信。科学要做的最后一件事就是与这些迷信连接。自从20世纪20年代以来,物理学家们一直在试图弄懂一种异样的发现。他们试图找出像电子一样的原子的确切位置,而他们发现这根本是不可能的。它们没有单一的位置。;When went studies Puppis and ylems,we found the reality is foreign strangers than anybody would have invented in the former infection.Part of views really do have the possibility of in some sense being in more than one place at one time.;;在研究的过程中,我们发现现实是外界陌生人会比一些人在早先感染前就已经发明出来了。部分的观点确实有可能在某种程度上,存在不止一个地方。;The only explanation which anyone could come up with is that the particles dont just exist in our universe.They flee into existence in other universes too,and there are an infinite number of these parallel universes.All of them slightly different.In a fact,theres parallel universe in which Napoleon won the battle of Waterloo.In another,the british empire held on to its American colony.In one you re never born.唯一的解释是任何人都可以想出粒子不只是存在于我们的宇宙中。他们逃到别的宇宙,也有可能存在无穷多个这样的平行宇宙。它们所有都略有不同。事实上,在平行的宇宙中,拿破仑赢得了滑铁卢战役。在另一方面,大英帝国仍然把美国当作殖民地。而你则不会出生。;Essentially anything that can happen,does happen in one of the alternatives,which means thats superimposed on top of the universe that we know of,is alternative universe when Al Gore, as a president,is still alive.;;本质上任何事情都可能发生,以另外一种选择发生,这意味着在我们知道的宇宙的基础上产生了叠加,它是另一个世界。而艾伯特;戈尔作为总统时,他还活着。;Beside it was so uncomfortable that for decades scientists dismissed it.除了有些忐忑不安,几十年来科学家们一直对它不屑一顾。词语解释:1. superimpose v. 叠加2. infinite a. 无限的3. exist v. 存在163715
