Is Bush an 'Idiot'Is the President of the ed States, George W. Bush, an idiot? Scarborough Country asks the forbidden question. They look at his inability to speak correctly, not at his inability to lead correctly, however. Of course the real question is, is the Republican Party full of idiots because they nominated the sucker, and continue to blindly follow his crap? Is the US full of idiots, because they elected the sucker and have not begun demanding better until recently?First, former pop star Linda Ronstadt, you remember,"You're no good, you know, you're, you are no good, baby, you're no good. Well, Linda has joined the long list of celebrities and other public figures who berated President Bush for his lack of intelligence. But it is not just singers and movie stars who are suggesting that George Bush's mental weakness is damaging America‘s credibility at home and abroad.Ronstadt said this earlier: “The Dixie Chicks said they were embarrassed he was from Texas...Well I‘m embarrassed George Bush is from the ed States [The president] is an idiot.He's enormously incompetent, on both sides, on both of the domestic and international scenes.”That is, no doubt, a sentiment that is shared in some of the capitals of our friends and foes alike. Maybe because the president has such a long history of public gaffes, but is that evidence that George W. Bush is stupid or just inarticulate.Take a look, and decide for yourself.GEORGE W. BUSH, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I think tide turning, see, as I remember, I was raised in the desert, but tides cannot turn—it is easy to see a tide turned. Did I say those words?No question that the enemy has tried to sp sectarian violence.And they use violence as a tool to do that.We need an energy bill that encourages consumption. Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people. And neither do we; we must never stop thinking about how best to defend our country.I am the decider, and I decide what is best.The ed States of America is engaged in a war against an extremist group of folks.Families is where our nation finds hope; where wings take dream.If you don't stand up for anything, you don't stand up for – anything. If you don't stand for something, you don't stand for anything. Fool me once, shame on you—it fooled me—we can‘t get fooled again.In my State of the—my State of the Union—our state, my speech to the nation, whatever you want to call it.At the high school level and find out that the literacy level of our children are appalling.I hear there is rumors on the Internets that we are gonna have a draft.You are working hard to put food on your family.I know that human being and fish can coexist peacefully.Tribal sovereignty means that, it's sovereign. I mean, you're a—you're a -you have been given sovereignty, and you are viewed as—a sovereign entity. And, therefore, the relationship between the federal government and tribes is one between sovereign entities. They (misunderstand...)underestimate the compassion of our country. I think they (misunderstood) underestimated the will and determination of the commander in chief, too.02/63031US Senate Democratic Leaders Outline New Agenda美国会民主党人阐述主要议事日程  A day after a new Democratic-led U.S. Congress was sworn in, lawmakers are focusing on an ambitious agenda. Senate Democratic leaders Wednesday outlined their priorities, which range from passing an economic stimulus plan to addressing new global threats and closing the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. 美国民主党人领导的新一届国会宣誓就职一天以后,议员们把关注点转向了雄心勃勃的国会议程。参议院民主党领袖星期三阐述了首要议程,包括通过一个经济刺激计划,因应全球范围新的威胁,以及关闭美国在古巴关塔那湾的拘留中心。Topping Democrats' agenda is an economic stimulus plan that will put the growing number of jobless Americans back to work. 民主党人所制定日程上的首要项目是刺激经济的一揽子计划,通过这一计划可以给越来越多的美国失业者创造就业机会。"The American people realize we have such a difficult time with the economy. It is in the state of crisis. It's not thousands of jobs being lost each month, but now hundreds of thousands of jobs lost each month," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. 参议院多数党领袖哈利.里德在一次新闻发布上说:“美国人民了解我们在经济上的困难时期。现在已经进入危机状态。目前的失业状况已经不再是每个月增加数千人,而是每个月增加数10万人。”Senate Republicans are open to a stimulus package, but say tax relief must be an essential part of the plan. 参议院共和党人对一个刺激经济一揽子计划持开放的态度,但是表示减少税款必须是这一计划的重要部分。Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke at a separate news conference.  参议院少数党领袖麦康内尔在另一个新闻发布会上说:"I also think we should take a look at the tax portion of the stimulus package, take a look at reducing the middle class tax rate," he said. “我还认为我们应该关注这个刺激方案中有关税收的部分,关注降低中产阶级税率的问题。”President-elect Barack Obama, who takes office January 20, wants Congress to pass a stimulus package by early next month, at the latest. 即将于本月20号宣誓就职的当选总统奥巴马希望国会最晚在下个月初以前通过这一刺激方案。On national security, Democrats want to draw down U.S. combat troops from Iraq and put more emphasis on the fight against al-Qaeda.  在国防问题上,民主党人希望削减美国在伊拉克的作战部队,在打击基地恐怖组织方面加强力量。"We will strengthen nonproliferation and protect our nation from other deadly weapons and will share more effectively in the fight against terrorism by transitioning our strategy in Iraq and refocusing our resources on al-Qaeda, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, and other emerging threats," said Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois, the number two Democrat in the Senate. 来自伊利诺伊州的迪克.德宾议员是参议院民主党的第二号人物,他说:“我们将加强核不扩散的工作,并保护我们的国家免受其他致命武器的攻击,我们还要在反恐斗争中通过移交我们在伊拉克的战略更有效地分享成果,并把我们的资源重新集中在基地组织、阿富汗、巴基斯坦,以及其他正在出现的威胁上面。”Democrats are also eager to end Bush administration detainee policies. Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the incoming chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, discussed legislation she introduced this week that would close the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay.  民主党人也渴望结束布什政府的拘留政策。来自加利福尼亚的黛安.范斯坦是参议院情报委员会新任主席,她讨论了本周由她本人提出的关闭美国在关塔那湾拘留中心的议案。"The need the close this facility is clear: along with the abuses at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo has been decried throughout the world. It has helped our enemies recruit, it has reduced America's credibility worldwide, strained relationships with our allies, and created a misguided dual legal system," she said. “关闭这个中心的必要性是清楚的:和在阿布格拉布虐囚的情况一样,关塔那中心也遭到了全世界范围的谴责。它帮助我们的敌人招募更多人员,导致美国在全世界的信誉下降,使我们和盟友的关系出现紧张,同时也产生了导向错误的双重法律体系。”The legislation would also limit interrogation procedures by the Central Intelligence Agency and end the outsourcing of coercive interrogations to government contractors. 这项立法还提出限制中央情报局的审讯程序,禁止跟政府签署合同的机构使用这种强制性的审讯程序。Other issues on the Democrats' agenda include immigration reform, health care and education. 民主党人的日程中还包括移民改革、健保和教育等其他议题。Besides passing legislation, members of the Senate will hold hearings on President-elect Obama's cabinet nominees. The first hearing is scheduled Thursday for former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, Mr. Obama's choice to head the Department of Health and Human Services. 除了讨论通过立法以外,参议院议员还要举行审核当选总统奥巴马提名的内阁成员的听会。第一个听会订于星期四举行,讨论奥巴马选择的卫生与公共务部部长提名人选前参议院多数党领袖汤姆.达什尔。Although the hearings can be held before Mr. Obama's inauguration, senators cannot vote to confirm nominees until after the new president is sworn in to office later this month. 监管这些听会可以在奥巴马宣誓就职之前举行,但是到本月稍后新总统就任以后参议员们才能投票决定这些内阁人选。01/60727The internet in China中国互联网Bashing Baidu打击百度State television fires on China’s Google国有电视台向中国谷歌开火Aug 27th 2011 | from the print editionLAST year Google remembered its motto (“Don’t be evil”) and stopped co-operating with China’s censors. Since then, Google has found it much harder to do business in mainland China. The chief beneficiary was Baidu, China’s leading search engine. Its share of internet searches, aly vast, grew to a dominant 75%.去年谷歌牢记自己的信条(“永不作恶”)以致终止了和中国审计的合作。自此以后,谷歌发现自己很难在中国大陆做生意了。其中主要的受益者就是百度,中国领先的搜索引擎。它的巨大的网络搜索份额已经达到垄断性的75%。Robin Li, Baidu’s Chinese-born, American-educated co-founder, is only 42 but one of China’s richest men. That makes him a target, despite his scrupulous efforts not to upset the ruling Communist Party. Since August 14th Baidu has been the subject of a series of damning investigative reports on CCTV, the main state-run broadcaster. Using undercover cameras, CCTV exposed Baidu employees apparently helping firms circumvent laws that bar unlicensed companies from advertising online. The reports also suggested that the lack of transparency in Baidu’s advertising system could lead advertisers to overpay. A Baidu spokesman refused to comment.中国出生,接受美国教育的百度联合创办人——李彦宏只有42岁就已经是中国最有钱的人之一。尽管他低调谨慎以免招惹到执政的共产党,但是这还是让他成为了目标。自从8月14日以来,百度已经成为了cctv(主要的国营媒体)开展的一系列调查恶性事件报道中的材料。cctv利用隐藏好的摄像头揭示了百度的雇员明显地在帮助一些公司绕开法律(禁止没有许可的公司在网上做广告)。这些报道还提到百度广告系统的不透明导致广告商们付过多的钱。百度的发言人拒绝发表。It was not the first time that CCTV has bashed Baidu. Reports in 2008 made similar allegations, prompting Baidu to apologise publicly. The latest attacks go further, though. It might seem a bit rich for the state broadcaster of a secretive, authoritarian country to chide Baidu for murkiness. And it certainly surprises some China-watchers. Baidu has done all it can to comply with the government’s whims. It is also a national champion: its shares are listed on New York’s NASDAQ exchange, and foreigners can’t get enough of them.这不是cctv第一次抨击百度了。在2008年的报道中也有类似的指控,促使百度发表公众道歉。尽管这一次的攻击已经相隔渐远了,但还是能认为对于一个不公开,专制的国家所有的电视台来说,对百度的暗中交易的批评次数好像有点多了。而且这确实令一些中国的观察者感到惊讶。百度已经做了它所能做的一切来迎合这个政府的意愿。在另外一个方面它也是这个国家的领先者:它的股份在纽约的纳斯达克陈列着而且外国人渴望得到这些股份。201109/152195Regulating 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。201107/144255New theatre 新剧Dreams within dreams 梦中梦A haunting vision of Haruki Murakami’s “The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle”村上春树《奇鸟行状录》萦绕于人心的影像Aug 27th 2011 | EDINBURGH | from the print edition ADAPTING a novel for the stage requires courage, vision and a spirit that refuses to kowtow to the original author. But few novels can have been as hard to rework as “The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle”, Haruki Murakami’s surreal and unwieldy 600-page exploration of fear. Stephen Earnhart’s adaptation (written with Greg Pierce), seven years in the making, had its world premiere at the Edinburgh festival on August 21st. Like a dream, it is wondrous, incomprehensible and poignantly memorable in all sorts of unexpected ways.将一本小说搬上舞台需要勇气、见识以及拒绝向原作者卑躬屈膝的精神。没有几本小说能像村上春树的《奇鸟行状录》——洋洋洒洒六百多页对恐惧的超现实主义且难以处理的探索——一样难以被改编。斯蒂芬#8226;爱恩哈特的改编(与格雷戈#8226;皮尔斯合写)在经历了七年之久的制作后,终于在八月二十一日的爱丁堡艺术节上与世人首次见面。它就像一个梦,极尽意想不到之能事,令人惊奇、困惑并过目难忘。First published in English in 1997, this Japanese novel was immediately hailed as a masterpiece, despite its fierce resistance to explanation. Mr Earnhart, a former producer for Miramax Films, has applied some cinematic flourishes to this production, which often recalls the bizarre cinema of David Lynch. The novel’s hallucinatory world is evoked through film projections, puppets and music. The mood is haunting and confusing, and peppered with bewitching details, like a white bird that suddenly flutters from bedsheets and flies away. 尽管这部日本小说晦涩难懂,它于1997年首度发行了英译本后便立刻被称为一部杰作。米拉麦克斯电影公司的前任制作人爱恩哈特先生将一些电影化的综合修饰应用于这部作品,这常常让人联想到大卫#8226;林奇离奇的电影。这本小说中的异幻世界通过影片投射、木偶与音乐而建构得来。它的气氛震撼人心、使人困惑,穿插着类似一只白色小鸟突然从床单上展开羽翼并飞向远方这样令人迷醉的细节。201109/152197

From the playful to the practical. To the cute, to the honored, dogs are everywhere in America. Today there are about 70 million dogs in ed States alone, one for every four people. But what is our obsession with them, and how much do we really love them? To find out, we travel to see the love firsthand. Doggie pampering is a big business. Billions of dollars each year are spent to keep them happy, healthy and well groomed. This is Samson and this is Delilah with the ponytails. They are Yorkshire terriers, and they were bred to be tiny. So they are not gonna be much more than four pounds. Patricia Young lives in the suburb outside Washington D.C. They have plenty of clothes; they have almost as many clothes as I do. I can’t go anywhere without somebody stopping us. I guess they're filling my emptiness because I have grown children and there is nobody here. So they are good company for me. They have robes when they come out of the shower or the bath. They have a couple of vests, a couple of jackets here. They have hat too; they also have boots. They don’t like wearing the hats or the boots. It's a little cold for them but I think this is cute, this is such crowdy outfit, and since it is so cold, I will put these on them. When we get y to go to Old Town, so we have to get dressed and then they will have to get into our little bag so that I can take them to the car to their car seat. Samson and Delilah aren’t just closehorses or dogs; they also enjoy the delights of some R n R at the spa. This is the Old Town Pet Resort in Fairfax County, Virginia, the most luxurious largest pet resort in the, probably in the world. We have a truly dedicated staff that loves animals. We hear many customers and dog owners say “You know, my dog is so happy here, he doesn’t seem to wanna go home.” Because the dogs can play up to 12 hours a day if they are in day camp, and they get walked three to four times a day. This is our grooming salon and it's state of the art (一流的,采用了最新技术的)and may be nicer than a lot of your barber shops. Here we have Laird, Ginger Biscuit and Toots who are sharing a Rotunda Five Star Luxury Suite. These guys all have television. And if you really miss your dog, you can watch your dog on the Internet camera provided here. She just loves it. She wants to get into the water so bad. Here we have our hydrotherapy(水疗) room, originally we designed it with hip dysplasiatic(那个speaker也许是想说dysplastic发育异常的) and geriatric (衰老的)dogs in mind, but increasingly we have a lot of Labs and Goldens, just real high-energy dogs. They all wear life jackets unless they are really talented or they’ve been coming for a long time. Maybe this seems indulgent and over luxurious for dogs, but you know, that, that is how Americans are living, and the dogs sort of are cheaper than psychotherapy.(心理治疗) And as people in our lives come and go, it is comforting to know we’ll always have someone to play with and call family.200812/59587

Cell Phone Artist At Work Artist Brett Rogers has created more than 60 images on his cell phone by using a drawing pad application. Rogers tells KCCI's Steve Karlin that it is a great way for artists to practice but no one knows about it. Des Moines, the technical center.Inside It is an artist dream...To my acknowledges, Tt's just this far.A place where plenty of people painted plenty of pretty pictures.What i've done is I have used the rainbow tool to get this / turquoise ....including, Brett Rogers"yep,just me and my cell phone on my lunch break." This specific phone is the Verizon LG Dare ."I learned back in the summer that LG put a drawing pad in here."Rogers says he may just be the only cell phone artist in the world.This is a great oppotunity for me to practise anywhere I go.The canvas is / compact.An inch and a half by an inch of three quarters.But with just six basic colors Rogers had created more than sixty images.It's got a very limited pallet,but there is also a tool on it, that allows you to get / an extend / colour range.So I can actually do / things that almostly painted.He wants / Verizon to take the advantages of the underused art specific application.But (if) they remarked in that way i think that would attract much bigger audience.So he recently assembled this poster/ and sent it to the company headquarters in New Jersey.So with this sells more phones for Verizon .There has to be something on brand Verizon,right"Yeah,there is ,but it is not really very much."If I get the free cell phone usage for my familly out ofthis,I am good.That 've done the work for me.Until Verizon anwers artist Brett Rogers ."I think,I've just about / got it."will keep bringing up pretty pictures on his phone.Yep,I am done.参考中文翻译:艺术家Brett Rogers利用手机上的绘画板程序创作出来60多幅画。Rogers对 KCCI的Steve Karlin说,这是艺术家练习的好方法。但是基本上没有人知道。Des Moines来自技术中心。他内心有这艺术家的梦想……据我所知,仅仅如此而已。在这里,每个人都可以绘制足够的图画。我所做的只是用虹工具来绘制出土耳其玉而已……包括,Brett Rogers“是的,仅仅是我在午餐时间用手机绘制而已。”这个特别的手机就是Verizon LG Dare。“夏天的时候我得知LG的手机有绘画板的功能。”Rogers说或许他是世界上唯一的手机绘画艺术家。这对我来说是一个好机会,因为无论我走到哪里,都可以画,它相当于压缩了的画布,仅仅1.75英寸长,1.5英寸宽。但是仅仅用6种颜色,Rogers就创作出来60多幅画。颜料板的颜色非常有限,但是它提供了一个工具,可以让你获得扩展到颜色范围。所以我可以绘制我想画的任何东西。他希望VerizonVerizon能够充分利用没有被充分利用的这个特殊的艺术软件程序但是他们说,如果这样的话,这个方法会吸引更多的观众。所以最近他们制作了这张海报寄送到Verizon在新泽西的总部。这样Verizon就能够买掉更多的手机。这对Verizon的品牌有重要意义,对吗?“是的,是会有,但是并不是那么大的影响。”如果我能够由于这件事为我的家人获取免费的手机 ,我就做了件好事了。这就是这件事对我的作用。但是要等到Verizon对Brett Rogers 的答复才得知。“我想我应该会得到的。”他一定还会继续在手机上创作更多的图画。200811/57018
