Japan students urge N-Arms ban

Students from the atomic-bombed cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki have delivered a speech at the UN Conference on Disarmament, calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons. Twenty- two senior high school students attended the international meeting on Tuesday in Geneva, Switzerland.

強く訴えた、核兵器、禁止、爆撃された町、スピーチをした、国連の会議、軍縮の、求める、廃絶、

‐I wish to take this opportunity to ask all of you to listen to the voices of “hibakusha,” and once again, to pay attention to the inhumanity of nuclear weapons.

この機会を借りて皆様にお願いしたいのは、被爆者(=atomic bombs victims)、再び、注意を払う、非人道性、

Nagaishi said she firmly believes that if young people like her and her colleagues join hands, something can be done to prompt people around the world to pave a path for abolishing nuclear weapons.

同年代の人たち=peer、何かが成し遂げられる、切り開く、核廃絶への道、

*pave the way=道を切り開く、

The wall Street Journal reports that U.S. President Barack Obama is considering a protocol of “No First Use” for nuclear weapons, but the proposal is running into opposition from top Cabinet officials and U.S. allies.

実施案、核の先制不使用、反対されている、有力閣僚、アメリカ同盟国

If President Obama declares a “No First Use” policy, it would mean the U.S. would explicitly rule out a first strike with a nuclear weapons in any conflict. The papers says Secretary of State John Kerry raised concerns from allies that rely on the U.S. for defense at a National Security Council meeting in July. It says the allies include Japan, South Korea and Britain.

明確に、排除する、新聞のこと(=The wall Street Journal)、懸念を挙げた、防衛についてアメリカに頼っている同盟国、国家安全保障会議、

It reports that Secretary of Defense Ash Carter also said a “No First Use” declaration would risk making allies feel insecure about the U.S. deterrent and some of those allies could pursue their own nuclear programs. The paper says Obama didn’t make a decision about the policy at the meeting. But it quotes people familiar with the discussions as saying opposition from the critical Cabinet members and U.S. allies reduces the likelihood of the change.

この新聞(=The wall Street Journal)、国防長官、宣言、不安な、抑止力、自分たちで核開発をしようとする国も出てくる、可能性

 


 

Walking Tall

The mystery of the black bear walking on two legs. It had much of the country watching videos of him. It would appear he is back tonight.

~させた、どうやら

People in Oak Ridge, New Jersey, say there is no doubt about it. That’s the same bear all right, the same one they first spotted nearly two years ago.

More than likely, it was a car accident. Bears can walk on their hind legs very well, and it’s just they don’t choose to do so.

かなり高い確率で、後ろ足、~だけ

Today, state wildlife officials said, if it is the same bear, he is still going strong and is testimony to its indomitable will. So they will just let him keep roaming, or in this case, walking. 州の、野生生物担当局、証拠となるもの、不屈の意思、うろつく
