1. in Detroit "disgreed" to cooperate (I am not sure)

2. guilty to one "count" of conspiracy to defraud( 我查了字典, conspiracy to defraud 好像是法律上的慣用語, =a secret plan to cheat someone, made by two or more people)

Kooper, this NPR News 可能是因為照稿念的原因, 我覺得速度比CNN播新聞的說話速度快了非常多

Hi Luis, this one is challenging. That's why it requires joint efforts among us to get the whole contents. :ssmile: Here I adds what I've got about the rest of the sentence.

Hi Michael, it does sound like "disagree" to me but if the engineer disagreed to cooperate with investigators, he will not "also" pleaded guilty. The contents don't feel right if the word is disagree. :? Here I updates the transctipt with your input.

The United States and Russia have announced a plan calling for ceasefire in Syria as soon as Monday. If the truce holds and other conditions are met, NPR's xxx reports, the two nations plan to coordinate efforts to defeat ISIS and the Al Qaeda affiliate in Syria.

Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian foreign minister xxx said implementation will begin on September 12 with the sussession of hostilities between Ragen and the opposition. Under the deal the Syrian air force will not fly combat missions in areas where the opposition is present, areas which would be designated by the US and Russia. And both Regen and opposition must allow access for aid. Xxx said if the truce and aid access hold for seven days, the US and Russia will create a joint information center to coordinate air strikes on ISIS and the Syrian Al Qaeda affiliate.

就單純是聽出來的 再加上前後文的推斷吧 而且這題她發音發的蠻清楚的

By the way, "disagree" 那一題,我也知道不合邏輯,maybe we have to ask Kat for the correct answer

Disagree. I think it is a word starting with D ( I am not sure, though)

It may be "in Detroit is discreet to cooperate....."
