How do you spell W-I-N-N-E-R?

Here, Thursday morning Pulse starting with the National Spelling Bee. Nearly 300 competitors took their turns in the preliminary rounds. And the field is now down to 40. Six-years-old Edith Fuller stepped to the microphone as the youngest ever participant. Her first word-nyctinasty, nyctinasty. Can you spell it? Ah…N-I-X…

読み書きのコンテスト、出場者、順番に挑戦した、予選、出場者、しぼられている、マイクの前に出た、参加者、(植物の)就眠運動、

-Nyctinasty, N-Y-C-T-I-N-A-S-T-Y, nyctinasty.

Correct.

正解、

So, not quite Kendis. Edith spelled that and her second word correctly, but her scores on preliminary written tests weren’t high enough to keep her in her competition.

But just to show that she really is a six-year-old kindergartner, after she found that she didn’t make it to the next round, she ran to her father and burst into tears.

いまいちね、アナウンサー名、幼稚園児、次の回まで進めなかった、泣き出す

 


 

Trump under fire for Virginia comments

Donald Trump is once again under fire for blaming both sides for last weekend’s violence in Virginia. One day after condemning white supremacists, Trump made an about-face, lashing out at a news conference.

集中砲火を浴びている、再び、両者を非難した、非難、白人至上主義者、正反対のことを言った、感情的に非難する

-You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now. You had a group, you had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit, and they were very, very violent.

突入、許可証、

White supremacists and far-right groups clashed with counter-protestors in Charlottesville on Saturday, leaving one woman dead and more than 30 people injured. Trump’s initial response blamed violence on “many sides” while failing to denounce the white supremacy movement. Two days later, he singled out the Ku Klux Klan and other extremists.

極右の、衝突した、最初の、暴力事件を多方面のせいにする、しなかった、非難する、名指しする、過激派

Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists.

人種差別は悪である、犯罪者、暴漢

-You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent, and nobody wants to say that. But I’ll say it right now.

悪いやつらがいる、もう一方で、とても暴力的なやつらがいる、誰も言わないだろうけど私は言うぞ

-This is magnified when the economy is down. When times are tough, people tend to want to blame some others. The alt-right*, although it doesn’t represent all of America, is growing in its role in absorbing social discontent.

*Alternative right=右翼思想の一種
