Mr. Annan says he expected the arrival of a 2)vanguard force of about 1,500 peacekeeping troops from ECOWAS, the Economic Community of West African States, by the end of the month. Slide63: Then, he says, Liberian President Charles Taylor would leave the country. When that happens, he says the United States would send 3)reinforcements to join the ECOWAS troops and a longer-term United Nations force would be established.
But the secretary general says he is troubled by delays in carrying out the plan to end the Liberian conflict. Slide64: "That is very worrying, because the longer we delay the deployment, the more dangerous the situation gets," he said. "So I have asked my military advisors and other officers to be in touch with the ECOWAS forces, with the U.S. and see what can be done to accelerate their deployment." He said.
Mr. Annan made his remarks following recent trips to West Africa and to Washington, where he met with President Bush. He says that progress has been made. Mr. Annan says that an understanding has been reached that ECOWAS, the United Nations and the United States have a role to play in Liberia. Slide65: However, U.S. officials continue to work on the details of sending a possible and limited U.S. force to the country, which was established by former U.S. slaves in the 19th century. U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell has met with members of the 4)Senate to discuss the plan.
On political issues in Liberia, Secretary General Annan says that talks are continuing in Ghana to work on a two-year 5)transitional government for Liberia to 6)stabilize the situation, pave the way for 7)disarmament and prepare for elections. Slide66: He says the international community continues to wait for Mr. Taylor, who is under 8)indictment for war crimes, to 9)step down and go to Nigeria.
"And he has made a 10)commitment not only to his African 11)peers but to the whole world and one is expecting him to 12)honor that commitment," said the U.N. chief of President Taylor. "So at this stage, we are acting on the assumption and the expectation that he will step down and leave office." Slide67: "And he has made a 10)commitment not only to his African 11)peers but to the whole world and one is expecting him to 12)honor that commitment," said the U.N. chief of President Taylor. "So at this stage, we are acting on the assumption and the expectation that he will step down and leave office."
Meanwhile, as a relative calm has 13)prevailed in Liberia's capital, Monrovia, a seven member U.N. assessment team is investigating the possible return of United Nations staff and aid workers.

Slide69: Had the war in Iraq, with the 1)ensuing controversy over 2)intelligence used to 3)justify it not occurred, Tony Blair would probably receive an even warmer welcome than the one he is likely to get on Capitol Hill.
4)Lawmakers in Congress remember that in the days after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States, Mr. Blair was among the first foreign leaders to express 5)condolences to Americans.
In January 2002, he came to Washington to be present during President Bush's first post-attack State of the Union Address. Peter King, a New York Republican who 6)sponsored a House 7)resolution to give Mr. Blair a congressional gold medal, remembers. Slide70: "And that evening President Bush said, 'Once again we are joined together in a great cause, and we are so honored the British Prime Minister has crossed an ocean to show his unity of purpose with America. Thank you for coming, friend.' And indeed, Tony Blair has been a friend of the United States, and just as important as that he has been a friend and supporter of democratic values, he realizes the 8)unique nature of the 9)bonds between the United States and Britain and indeed between the United States and Europe," said Mr. King.
However, when Congressman King made that statement, Mr. Blair had already been under intense pressure for weeks from government 10)inquiries into information used to justify British participation in the Iraq war. Slide71: In House debate on honoring Mr. Blair, lawmakers praised him for his leadership in helping to 11)craft a peace 12)settlement in Northern Ireland and his cooperation in the war on terror, as well as in Afghanistan and Iraq.
However, some warned against giving him a congressional honor at a time when he faced intense 13)scrutiny on the Iraq intelligence issue, saying it would appear to be "14)propping up" an 15)embattled politician.
Massachusetts Democrat Ed Markey said Mr. Blair deserved credit for acting as a 16)moderating force in the months leading up to the Iraq war. Slide72: "But for Tony Blair's 17)insistence, President Bush would have never gone to the United Nations," he said. "It was he, Tony Blair, who made the 18)pre-condition to his support that the United States would go to the United Nations in order to secure a vote, and for that he deserves enormous credit."
On the eve of Prime Minister Blair's visit, Congressman Markey and 40 other Democrat members of the House sent a letter to President Bush. Slide73: In it, they urge the president to ask Mr. Blair to turn over what they call "all relevant intelligence" about 19)alleged Iraqi attempts to obtain 20)uranium from Africa, saying this would be an opportunity "for both leaders to 21)come clean with the American people and the world".
Before leaving for Washington, Mr. Blair again defended British information about Iraqi uranium purchase attempts, saying London had solid intelligence separate from other information.
Lawmakers expect the British prime minister's speech to Congress to focus on 22)enduring bonds between the United States and Britain, and the need to persevere in Iraq, Afghanistan and in the war on terror. Slide74: Meanwhile, back to the gold medal, Prime Minister Blair will not be receiving it on this trip, as many had assumed. It takes several months for a medal to be struck. Also, the House and Senate-approved resolution has only just been sent to President Bush for his signature.
Congressional 23)staffers say he will likely return later this year to receive the honor.

(guess the spelling through the sound you hear; and then look up the word you guess in the dictionary to make sure whether its form is correct) Lesson 21: Lesson 21 Homework-checking: Homework-checking Old Arthur
Everyone knows him as Old Arthur. He lives in a little hut in the middle of a small wood, about a mile from the village. He visits the village store twice a week to buy food and paraffin, and occasionally he collects letters and his pension from the post office. A few weeks ago, a reporter from the local newspaper interviewed him. This is what he said:
I get up every morning with the birds. There is a stream near my hut and I fetch water from there. It’s good, clear, fresh water, better than you get in the city. Occasionally, in the winter, I have to break the ice. I cook simple food on my old paraffin stove; mostly stews and things like that. Sometimes I go to the pub and have a drink, but I don’t see many people. I don’t feel lonely. I know this wood very well, you see. I know all the little birds and animals that live here and they know me. I don’t have much money, but I don’t need much. I think I’m a lucky man.

Lesson 23 A Story of Christmas: Lesson 23 A Story of Christmas It was just a few days until Christmas in San Francisco, and the shopping downtown was starting to get to us. I remember crowds of people waiting impatiently for slow moving buses and streetcars on those little cement islands in the middle of the street. Most of us were loaded down with packages, and it looked like many of us were beginning to wonder if all those countless friends and relatives actually deserved so many gifts in the first place. This was not the Christmas spirit I’d been raised with. Slide94: When I finally found myself virtually shoved up the steps of a jammed streetcar, the idea of standing there packed like a sardine the whole way home was almost more than I could take. What I would have given for a seat! I must have been in some kind of exhausted daze because as people gradually got off, it took me a while to notice that there was room to breathe again. Slide95: Then I saw something out of the corner of my eye. A small, dark-skinned boy – he couldn’t have been more than five or six – tugged on a woman’s sleeve and asked, “Would you like a seat?” he quietly led her to the closest free seat he could find. Then he set out to find another tired person. As soon as each rare, new seat became available, he would quickly move through the crowd in search of another burdened woman who desperately needed to rest her feet. Slide96: When I finally felt the tug on my own sleeve, I was absolutely dazzled by the beauty in the little boy’s eyes. He took my hand, saying, “Come with me,” and I think I’ll remember that smile as long as I live. As I happily placed my heavy load of packages on the floor, the little emissary of love immediately turned to help his next subject. Slide97: The people on the streetcar, as usual, had been studiously avoiding each other’s eyes, but now they began to exchange shy glances and smiles. A businessman offered a section of newspaper to the stranger next to him; three people stooped to return a gift that had tumbled to the floor. And now people were speaking to one another. That little boy had tangibly changed something – we all relaxed into a subtle feeling of warmth and actually enjoyed the trip through the final stops along the route. Slide98: I didn’t notice when the child got off. I looked up at one point and he was gone. When I reached my stop I practically floated off the streetcar, wishing the driver a happy holiday, noticing the sparkling Christmas lights on my street in a fresh, new way. Or maybe I was seeing them in an old way, with the same open wonder I felt when I was five or six. I thought, “So that’s what they mean by and a little child shall lead them…” Vocabulary:: Vocabulary: Cover charge: n.

Are you a morning person or an evening person? That’s the question. When do you work best? For me the answer is easy. I work best in the morning. All my creative work is done before lunchtime. I get up at about eight, and then have breakfast. I listen to the radio a bit, and read the papers. And then I start. Usually I work from nine or nine-thirty until twelve but after that I’m useless. On a good day I write fifteen hundred words of more, sometimes two thousand words, in the morning. Then after lunch I go for a walk, or read. In the evening I like to relax, go to the pub or go out and meet people. If you’re a writer you need self-discipline. But if you’re tired, it shows: the mind and body must be fresh.

Keep notes short.
Use abbreviations, but not so many that you can’t understand your own notes later!
Use words like because, therefore, but, or and to show how ideas are related.
Use the dash--. It’s a very useful punctuation mark in note-making.
Use a lot of space then you can expand your notes later. Put each separate idea on a new line.
Use the layout to help make the meaning clear. Use new paragraphs, headings, CAPITAL LETTERS and underlining. Supplementary reading:: Supplementary reading: A lawyer is a person with a very special knowledge of the law –both civil and criminal. Because of this knowledge the lawyer can help people plan their affairs in accordance with law. In other words, he helps people keep out of trouble as well as helping those who are already in trouble. He helps to ensure freedom of thought and action and to bring about peace between person and person, and person and government. He prepares agreements and contracts by which one person makes sure that another person will carry out his promises. He prepares wills and documents transferring property. He gives advice to people on domestic and family relationships and on business problems.
The lawyer is not only a champion and advocate of the rights of his client but also an officer of the court sworn to uphold the Constitution and the law. Lesson 25: Lesson 25 Dictation:
Well, I think that this problem of teenagers getting into trouble with the law is mainly caused by unemployment. You see, because of the high level of unemployment, so many teenagers nowadays leave school and find that they have no chance of getting a job, and this obviously makes them feel bored and frustrated. And as a result of this, they’re much more likely to get drunk and so on. Another thing of course is that you get groups of unemployed teenagers wandering around the streets with nothing to do, which can easily lead to trouble of one sort or another.

Huge number: 3,250,000 = 3m 250th Superstitions 1: Superstitions 1 Most of today’s superstitious beliefs can be traced back to those of primitive people who had no understanding of the laws of nature. They were surrounded by mysteries—lightning, rain, eclipses, birth and death, to mention only a few. The apparent miracle of a flower growing from a tiny seed or a tadpole becoming a frog surely proved that there were unseen spirits around. But since life in those times was hard and full of danger, primitive man decided there were more bad spirits than good ones. His problem was to figure out how to keep the evil spirits happy and satisfied so they would not harm him. Hi invented charms and tokens as well as all kinds of countercharms. Thus out of ignorance and fear came superstitions. 2: 2 Knocking on Wood. People knock on wood after speaking of good fortune or a hope for the future. This practice resulted from the early belief that trees, the sources of wood, were the homes of gods. The noise made by knocking on the tree would keep them away overhearing any good news and perhaps trying to alter it.
Crossing Your Fingers. Often people cross their fingers when making a wish. They believe this will make the wish come true.
Cross Your Heart. Sometimes people who want you to understand they are telling the truth will say, “Cross you heart and hope to die,” while making a large cross over the heart. 3: 3 Umbrellas. Many years ago in the Old World, when umbrellas were umbrellas were made big enough to cover a whole family. When opened indoors, these clumsy, thick things usually hurt someone or broke something in the house. They were bad luck indeed, and especially so when the closed umbrella was used for a whipping. 4: 4 Walking Under a Ladder. In some Asian countries criminals were hanged from the seventh rung of a ladder propped against a tree. Since death was thought to be contagious, people who walked under the ladder would be in danger of catching death from the ghost of the hanged man. 5: 5 Breaking a Mirror. Breaking a mirror will mean seven years of hard luck. When early man believed that the reflection he saw of himself in a pool of water was his soul, or “other self.” This other self would be injured if disturbed in any way. About 2,000 years ago, the Romans decided that it meant not only bad luck but seven whole years of it. That number was chosen because it was thought that life renewed itself every seven years. The Romans thought it would take a person that long to recover from such a blow. 6: 6 Number 13. When man first learned to count by using his ten fingers and two feet as units, he came up with the number 12. What stretched beyond—13—was unknown and therefore mysterious to early man. He found he could divide 12 into halves, quarters, or thirds. But 13 would not divide evenly. However, 13 was regarded as lucky by the ancient Chinese and Egyptians. 7: 7 Friday the 13th is based on the Norse legend about the goddess Freya, who was banished to the mountains as a witch. It was believed that on Friday of each week, a day called “witches’ Sabbath,” 12 witches and the devil met. This added up to 13 evil spirits bent on mischief.
Black Cats. The superstition about the evil that ban come your way when a black cat crosses your path goes back to the Middle Ages. It was believed that black cats were the companions of witches. After seven years of service the cats themselves changed into witches or devils. 8: 8 Sneezes. Your friends are likely to say, “God bless you” or “Gesundheit” (the German for “good health”) or “Felicita” (Italian for “happiness”) when you sneeze. Early man believed that a person’s spirit or soul was in the form of air or breath and was contained in the head. The act of bowing toward the sneezer was also counter—magic and meant “May your soul not escape.” Dictation: Dictation It was early afternoon, and the beach was almost empty. It was getting hot now. Most of the tourists were still finishing their lunch back at the hotel, or taking their afternoon siesta in the air-conditioned comfort of their rooms. One or two Englishmen were still lying stretched out on the sand, determined to go home with a good suntan, and a few local children were splashing around in the clear shallow water. There was a large yacht moving slowly across the bay. The girl was on board. She was standing at the back of the boat, getting ready to dive. Jason put on his sunglasses and casually wandered down towards the sandy beach. Slide120: Lesson 25-26 Slide121: Dates

He had six beautiful mermaid daughters, who loved to play in the clear blue water. But they were not allowed to rise to the surface and look at the world where human beings lived.
“You are all much too young to leave the sea,” said their grand mother. “But I will tell young strange tales of the world of human beings if you are very good.”
As the Princesses grew up, they each swan up to view the outside world. At last it was they turn of the youngest Princess. Slide124: Above the waves, the sky was dark. As a great storm blew up, a ship was driven upon rocks near the shore and a young man was thrown into the water. The little mermaid brought him safely to shore, leaving him on a sandy beach.
The little mermaid hid and waited. Soon some girls came along the beach and found the young man.
“It’s the Prince!” they cried.
“Where is the lovely girl who saved me?” he asked. But no one knew.
The little mermaid swam sadly away. She had fallen in love with the handsome Prince.
“I shall visit the sea witch and ask for her help.” She said.
“So you want to become human? I shall take your voice as payment,” cackled the witch. “But to be truly human man. If he chooses another, you will turn into sea foam before dawn.” Slide125: So the little mermaid gave her lovely voice to the witch and became human. She joined the crowd at the Prince’s palace and before long had become close to the close to the Prince. But without her voice, she could not tell him who she was.
One day the Prince said, “We are sailing to meet a beautiful Princess. I may marry her. “The little mermaid thought that her heart would break.”
When the Prince met the lovely Princess, he was dazzled by her beauty. The wedding was planned to take place the next day.
The little mermaid wept.
“You can save yourself,” cried her sisters from the sea, “if you kill the Prince!”
But the little mermaid loved him too much to do so and threw herself into the sea. But she did not turn into foam. She became spirit of the air and was happy at last. Lesson 27: Lesson 27 The Hare
the Tortoise Slide127: There was once a hare who was very proud of his running. "No one is as speedy as me!" he cried. "Would anyone like to race?"
"No thanks!" laughed the other animals. "We know you can run faster than any of us."
But one little voice piped up politely behind him. ""I'll give you a race if you like, Mr. Hare, it said.
The hare turned around in surprise. Standing before him was a wrinkly old tortoise.
"Oh my!" replied the hare. "You make me tremble, Mr. Tortoise." Slide128: But the old tortoise was serious, so it was agreed that the two would race to the oak tree and back.
"On your marks! Get set! Go!" yelled the squirrel.
In a couple of seconds, the hare was nearly out of sight. The tortoise set off in his usual slow way.
When he reached the tree, the hare was so confident that he sat down to rest. But he soon fell fast asleep! Slide129: An hour later, he woke up and heard cheering in the distance. Leaping to his feet, he run as fast as his legs would carry him, but the tortoise's head bobbed over a line a whisker before the hare's.
"Being quick on your feet is a fine thing, Mr. Hare, but slow and steady wins the race." said Mr. Tortoise. Slide130: 机场常见的英文标志：

Step by Step 2000 Unit 2 Part IV
Don’t attempt to write to much Slide134: Note-taking is a very complex skill. But it is essential in listening. It helps us organize facts and retain concepts for later use. Taking good notes requires us to do two things quickly. First, to recognize the main topics; and second , to write down the important details and supporting examples as we hear and understand. In other words, our note-taking should keep pace with the speaker’s thinking process. Slide135: The general principle for note-taking is to reduce the language by shortening the words and sentences that we hear. It is important to remember that we should not attempt to write too much. That is to say, we should learn to write the minimum to give sufficient meaning. And we should also learn to choose an appropriate time to write the notes quickly and lay them out clearly. Slide136: Some commonly used Latin abbreviations are often very useful in note-taking. For example, cf.---compare of compare with; i.e.---that is; e.g.--- for example; and etc.--- et cetera, and so on.
One way to take notes of dialogues or conversations is to write down different speakers’ words in separate spaces, such as separate columns of lines. This will help us sum up each speaker’s views and opinions correctly.
Of course, note-taking is a highly personal skill. So we should make constant efforts to develop good ways of note-taking which are most effective and suitable to ourselves. selling: selling Open market Supermarket Polling: Polling Female voter reading sample ballot Voters selecting candidates in voting booths Inheritance tax:: Inheritance tax: A UK tax started in 1986 which replaced capital transfer tax. It is levied on the value of a deceased person's ‘estate’, and includes property, land, investments, and other valuable assets. Small estates are not liable to tax. Similar taxes are imposed in several countries, and can be traced back to Roman times. In the USA, such taxes are collected by the individual states, with an estate tax being imposed federally, based on the amount left, not owned; there is also a gift tax, to prevent evasion. Beneficiary:: Beneficiary: 1. a person or group that receives benefits, profits, or advantages.
2. a person designated as the recipient of funds or other property under a will, trust, insurance policy, etc.
3. Ecclesiastical. the holder of a benefice. Slide141: Judo— (柔道 jūdō?), meaning "gentle way", is a modern Japanese martial art (gendai budō) and combat sport, that originated in Japan in the late nineteenth century. Its most prominent feature is its competitive element, where the object is to either throw one's opponent to the ground, immobilize or otherwise subdue one's opponent with a grappling maneuver, or force an opponent to submit by joint locking the elbow or applying a choke. Kicks, punches, and thrusts are also practiced, but only in pre-arranged forms. They are not allowed in judo competition or freestyle practice. Slide142: Ultimately, the philosophy and subsequent pedagogy developed for judo became the model for almost all modern Japanese martial arts that developed from "traditional" schools (koryū). Practitioners of judo are called jūdōka.
1982 the late Dr. Jigoro Kanro opened the first of judo in Japan. Dr. Kano’s purpose in developing judo as a sport was to make avaible the physical and mental training of jujitsu without the techniques that could cause injury. Stripped of the deadly locks and throws of jujitsu, the new sport of judo became safe even for women and children. Slide143: Karate—(空手道) (listen (help·info)) or karate-dō (空手道?) is a martial art that developed from a synthesis of indigenous Ryukyuan fighting methods and kempo. "Karate" originally meant Chinese hand, but was later changed to a homonym meaning "empty hand" in Japanese. It is known primarily as a striking art, featuring punching, kicking, knee/elbow strikes and open handed techniques. However, grappling, joint manipulations, locks, restraints/traps, throws and vital point striking also appear in karate. A practitioner of karate is called a karateka (空手家). Slide144: Taekwondo—(also spelled taekwon-do or tae kwon do) is a martial art and combat sport originating in Korea. One of the most widely practiced martial arts in the world, it is the national sport of South Korea and one form of sparring, shihap kyeorugi, is an Olympic sporting event.

Probationer—a person undergoing probation or trial. If I were a Boy Again: If I were a Boy Again If I were a boy again, I would practice perseverance more often, and never give up a thing because it was or inconvenient. If we want light, we must conquer darkness. Perseverance can sometimes equal genius in its results. “There are only two creatures,” syas a proverb, “who can surmount the pyramids—the eagle and the snail.” If I were a boy again, I would school myself into a habit of attention; I would let nothing come between me and the subject in hand. I would remember that a good skater never tries to skate in two directions at once. The habit of attention becomes part of our life, if we begain early enough. I often hear grown up people say “ I could not fix my attention on the sermon or book, although I wished to do so” , and the reason is, the habit was not formed in youth. If I were to live my life over again, I would pay more attention to the cultivation of the memory. I would strengthen that faculty by every possible means, and on every possible occasion. It takes a little hard work at first to remember things accurately; but memory soon helps itself, and gives very little trouble. It only needs early cultivation to become a power. Slide147: If I were a boy again, I would cultivate courage. “Nothing is so mild and gentle as courage, nothing so cruel and pitiless as cowardice,” syas a wise author. We too often borrow trouble, and anticipate that may never appear.” The fear of ill exceeds the ill we fear.” Dangers will arise in any career, but presence of mind will often conquer the worst of them. Be prepared for any fate, and there is no harm to be freared. If I were a boy again, I would look on the cheerful side. Life is very much like a mirror: if you smile upon it, I smiles back upon you; but if you frown and look doubtful on it, you will get a similar look in return. Inner sunshine warms not only the heart of the owner, but of all that come in contact with it. “ who shuts love out ,in turn shall be shut out from love.” If I were a boy again, I would school myself to say no more often. I might write pages on the importance of learning very early in life to gain that point where a young boy can stand erect, and decline doing an unworthy act because it is unworthy. If I were a boy again, I would demand of myself more courtesy towards my companions and friends, and indeed towards strangers as well. The smallest courtesies along the rough roads of life are like the little birds that sing to us all winter long, and make that season of ice and snow more endurable. Finally, instead of trying hard to be happy, as if that were the sole purpose of life, I would , if I were a boy again, I would still try harder to make others happy. Transfer desk:: Transfer desk:
