AP NEWS一分钟,是美联社(Associated Press)推出的长度约一分钟的新闻简讯形式的报道。它因短小简洁、时效性强,深受广大英语爱好者追捧。美联社是美国最大的通讯社,也是国际性通讯社之一,全称为“美国联合通讯社”,英文简称AP。 马克·吐温曾说:“给地球各个角落带来光明的只有两个:天上的太阳和地上的美联社。”“美联社时事精华,一分钟展现鲜活世界”不但是利发国际训练的好素材,也是通晓国际时事的窗口。

1. President Barack Obama will give a prime time speech Thursday night to announce steps he’s taking to shield up to 5 million immigrants illegally in the US from deportation. The president will travel to Las Vegas following the speech to promote the new plan.

2. Police have rested a suspect in a deadly subway pushing incident in New York city. Authorities say 34-year-old Kevin Darden pushed Wai Kuen Kwok off a subway platform in front of an oncoming train. Darden was picked up by detectives Tuesday near his mother’s Bronx home.

3. Israeli troops demolished the home of a Palestinian who carried out a deadly attack last month. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised strict security measures in the wake of Tuesday’s grisly synagogue assault. Netanyahu called the demolition a significant and important step.

4. And a massive toilet-shaped cake was unveiled in New Delhi, India as part of World Toilet Day. The super-sized commode weighed more than 1,500 pounds, kicking off an initiative to raise awareness of the need for clean sanitation.
