 美空管上班期间睡觉 联邦航空局官员辞职
Big change coming at the FAA. The man in charge, Hank Krakowski, quit his job yesterday because he's ultimately responsible for his employees, and several them have fallen asleep at work this year! We're talking about air traffic controllers -- the folks responsible for directing planes when to take off or land and keeping tabs on weather conditions. They've fallen asleep on the job at least six times this year. And while no accidents or crashes have happened because of it, the FAA is taking action. It's reviewing employee schedules. In some cases, it's making sure that at least two air traffic controllers are on the job during midnight shifts -- right now, some towers have only one.

美国联邦航空局发生巨大变化。负责人汉克•克拉考斯基,昨日辞去了工作。因为他要对今年几起下属员工在工作时睡觉造成的事故负责!我们谈论的是空中交通管制员——负责指挥飞机起飞或降落或者监视天气状况的人员。今年,这些员工至少有六次在工作时睡着。虽然没有发生意外或坠落事故,联邦航空局也在采取行动。如重新检查员工的工作时间表。在某些情况下,确保至少有两个空中交通管制员值夜班——现在,一些控制塔台只有一个工作人员负责。


美德克萨斯州野外起大火
The gusty, dry winds blowing across Texas aren't making this any better. They're fanning the flames of a number of wildfires, which have burned hundreds of thousands of acres, destroyed homes and businesses, threatened animals. Firefighters have some of the fires under control. They're using everything from hoses to planes to get water on these flames. Different kind of danger forecast for the plains states and the south. A powerful storm system is sweeping across the states from west to east and severe thunderstorms are expected to be part of it.

一阵一阵的干燥的大风穿过德克萨斯州使得野外大火更加疯狂,几十万英亩的土地付之一炬,民宅建筑被烧毁,动物也受到威胁。消防队员控制了一部分火情。他们使用软管从飞机上获取水源来扑灭大火。据报道,平原地区和南部地区还会受到不同程度地威胁。一场强烈的风暴系统正从西向东席卷整个国家,预计部分地区会有雷暴雨。


青少年驾车出车祸较多的原因
You might know that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 13 to 19. But a study just found that reckless driving and alcohol aren't the main reasons for the crashes involving teens. Driver error is. Three of the common mistakes the study found: Not scanning around you well enough. Driving too fast for road conditions -- this isn't necessarily speeding, though. And getting distracted while driving. To be safer, researchers suggest learning to look far ahead, behind, and around your car. Adjust your speed to the weather, traffic, and road conditions. And don't get sidetracked by your friends or your cell phone.

你可能知道车祸是导致美国13至19岁青少年死亡的原因。但一项研究发现,鲁莽驾驶和酗酒不是青少年驾车出事故的主要原因。错误的驾驶才是罪魁祸首。该研究发现常见的三种错误:第一,对周围情况观察的不是很全面。第二,车开得太快,虽然不一定是超速。第三,开车时分心。为了更安全,研究人员建议驾驶人员要学会观察车子前方、后方以及周围的情况。根据天气、交通以及路况调整驾车速度。开车时,不要和朋友聊天或者打电话。

2011-04-27 10:22:26 相关背景:4月13日早间,一架运送病人的小型医疗飞机飞抵内华达州雷诺-塔霍机场时,因无法与塔台唯一当值的空管员取得联络,只得依靠远在加州的雷达控制员的引导,冒险自行降落。这名航管员被指当时正在睡觉,目前已被停职并接受调查。联邦航空局星期四说,今年以来连续发生空中管制人员上班期间睡觉的事故,该局负责空中管制系统的官员辞职。
