Increased public and political pressure has led Enbridge to invest million in equipment to protect against a spill from the 63-year-old pipeline under the Straits of Mackinac. The Canadian energy company hopes to bring safety reassurance to Michigan through a series of community open houses near Line 5.Though Line 5 receives regular supervision by Enbridge, Stephen Lloyd, a senior manager of emergency response for the company, said an investment of million is being put into emergency response equipment.;Were looking to make sure that were able to contain and recover (oil) in open water,; Lloyd said on Stateside. ;To prevent it (from) actually making landfall.;Lloyd added that the new technology, which includes skimmers for icy conditions, will make sure Enbridge is ;prepared in the unlikely event of a release.;Line 5 carries more than 500,000 barrels of crude oil and natural gas liquids every day under the Straits, and has been operating since 1953. But Lloyd says the public should not be concerned about the age of the pipeline.;With proper maintenance programs and rigorous monitoring,; Lloyd said, ;the life expectancy can be indefinite.;But that maintenance may not be enough, said Michigan Radios Mark Brush, who has been covering Enbridge and Line 5 for several years.Brush told Stateside most people just arent comfortable having an oil pipeline run through Lake Michigan.Brush noted that Enbridge is exceeding the governments standards for pipeline safety, but the National Wildlife Federation doesnt believe those standards are tough enough. Ever since the spill of Line 6B in Kalamazoo in 2010, Line 5 has been under a watchful eye.;People were shocked to find out theres something under Lake Michigan,; Brush said, adding that this pressure led to the U.S. Senate passing tighter pipeline regulation.Lloyd joined Cynthia Canty on Stateside to talk about Enbridges safety plan. Michigan Radios Mark Brush also joined Stateside to discuss the concerns surrounding Line 5.In full disclosure, Enbridge is a financial supporter of Michigan Radio.GUESTSStephen Lloyd is a senior manager of emergency response with Enbridge.Mark Brush has covered Enbridge and Line 5 for Michigan Radio201606/450541In a speech in Hanover, Germany, President Obama announced on Monday that he will send 250 more U.S. troops to Syria to maintain the fight against Islamic State extremists. 在德国汉诺威的演讲中,奥巴马总统周一宣布,将派遣250多名美国军队前往叙利亚,保持对伊斯兰国极端分子的打击。In an appeal for solidarity, the President urged European allies to contribute to the fight against ISIS by contributing troops of their own. 在呼吁团结中,总统敦促欧洲盟国贡献自己的军队促进打击ISIS。In a NATO coalition that consists of 66 nations, the U.S. is still the country conducting the majority of airstrikes and few nations have sent in ground troops. 在包含66个国家的北约联盟,美国仍是指导大部分空袭的国家,几乎没有国家派遣地面部队。At one point in his speech, President Obama said, ;Ill be honest: Sometimes Europe has been complacent about its own defense.;奥巴马总统在讲话中称,“我会诚实地说,有时欧洲对自己的防御很自满。”译文属。201604/439659

The Centers for Disease Control released the ed States death rate for 2015, and its the first time the death rate has increased in a decade. 美国疾病控制中心发布2015年美国死亡率,十年来首次出现上升。The CDC indicated that while it was too soon to find an official cause for the increase, 疾病预防控制中心表示,虽然还不能尽快找到上升的官方原因,higher rates of suicide, problems with painkiller abuse, and higher rates of Alzheimers could be key factors in the higher rate. 但更高的自杀率、止痛药的滥用问题以及高比例的老年痴呆症可能是更高比率的关键因素。The number of people who died per 100,000 U.S. residents went from 723 in 2014 to 729 in 2015. 每十万美国居民的死亡人数从2014年的723人上升到2015年的729人。Further information about the statistic, including a breakdown on death rates by age, religious status, sex, and race will be available in a few months.有关统计的进一步信息,包括死亡率按年龄、宗教状况、性别和种族的分类将在几个月内公布。译文属。201606/447371

听力参考文本(文本与听力不全一致,敬请谅解):As everyone knows, the first presidential debate since the primaries is tonight, the first head-to-head clash between the two least popular presidential nominees ever.The atmosphere is more like that surrounding a Super Bowl, or maybe the boxing match ;Thrilla in Manila,; than a normal political event, and it is expected to draw perhaps a hundred million viewers, far more than any other in the history of televised debates.After all, as a story in the Boston Globe said yesterday, ;all thats at stake is the future of the free world.; Regardless of whether you think thats true, it is unquestionable that these debates, which are really sort of televised joint news conferences, have often had dramatic impact.Who can forget a shifty-eyed, perspiring and nervous Richard Nixon, looking uncomfortable, his stubble showing, as the handsome and tanned John F. Kennedy stole the show and won the election. Weve seen Ronald Reagan destroying Jimmy Carter with his gently mocking ;there you go again,; and Reagan slip badly, then recover, when the issue of his age came up four years later in his debates with Walter Mondale.There have also been memorable moments in the vice-presidential debates. Bob Dole lost points by being too nasty and aggressive when he was running for the second slot in 1976. Years later, Dole, who had a better sense of humor than both this years candidates put together, told me, ;I went for the jugular in that debate – my own.;Lloyd Bentsen never got to be vice president, because he was running with the hapless Michael Dukakis. But he destroyed any hope Dan Quayle had for moving higher with his devastating line, ;Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, youre no Jack Kennedy.;But while we know these debates are crucial to the presidency, we often dont realize they can have consequences for other races as well. Four years ago, President Obama came to his first debate with Mitt Romney looking like he wasnt really prepared.The president seemed passive and inept, and observers overwhelmingly agreed Romney had won. The advantage didnt last, however; Obama picked himself up and decisively won the final two debates, after Romney made his famous ;I have binders full of women; gaffe.After the election, I said to Congressman Sander Levin that the debates didnt seem to have had any lasting effect. ;Ah, but you are wrong about that,; he said.He said Obamas weak performance in the first debate caused worried Democrats to shift millions in campaign spending from congressional races to the presidential contest.That, Levin believed, might have cost Democrats a chance to take back control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Im not sure about that. But it might have made a difference in one Michigan race. Theres a retired legislator named Gary McDowell in the little Upper Peninsula town of Rudyard who might be in Congress today if things had gone differently.He ran for Congress up north four years ago, and lost by one-half of one percent of the vote. He ran well ahead of the President in his district, and a little more money could have made the difference. This year, Democrat Lon Johnson is trying for the same seat.You can bet hes hoping Hillary Clinton does really well.201609/468593
