**中国经济增长放缓**

中国发表报告说,2013年第三季度的中国经济增长速度减缓,而且看来今后将进一步放慢增长速度。
中国国家统计局星期一也表示,中国经济去年全年的增长率为7.7%,与2012年持平,这是自1999年以来的最低增长率。
分析人士说,中国经济增长速度上季度大幅放缓,工业产量、出口以及投资都少于前一季度。
有关官员说,长期积累下来的问题仍待解决,去年政府开支的微弱刺激效果已经减弱。
作为世界第二大经济体,中国的经济增长势头仍比美国、日本和欧洲强劲得多。

China Economy Slows

China reports that its economic growth slowed in the final quarter of 2013 and appears set to cool even further.

China's National Bureau of Statistics also said Monday that the economy grew by 7.7 percent for all of last year, the same as in 2012, for its weakest performance since 1999.

Analysts say the economy slowed quite rapidly in the last quarter, with factory output, exports and investment all weaker than the previous quarter.

Officials said that a long-term accumulation of problems has yet to ease, and a mini-stimulus of government spending last year has faded.

Growth of the world's second-largest economy is still considerably stronger than the United States, Japan or Europe.

**美国过节纪念民权运动领袖**

星期一是美国联邦假日,纪念被杀害的民权领袖马丁·路德·金的诞辰。
马丁·路德·金日是1983年设立的联邦假日,时任美国总统里根签署了一项法案,在每年1月的第三个星期一纪念马丁·路德·金。1929年1月15日,马丁·路德·金出生于乔治亚州的亚特兰大市。
1994年,美国国会把马丁·路德·金日定为全国服务日,鼓励美国民众参与社区项目的活动。
马丁·路德·金在1955年成为著名人士,当时他在阿拉巴马州的蒙特马利市成功地领导了对公交车线路的封锁,迫使该市停止了对黑人乘客的隔离政策。在上世纪50和60年代,马丁·路德·金成为民权运动的主要代言人,他1963年在华盛顿大游行期间发表著名演讲“我有一个梦想”,激励了无数民众。

**US Observes Holiday Honoring Civil Rights Leader**


Americans across the country pause Monday to observe the annual federal holiday marking the birthday of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.

The holiday was created in 1983 when then-president Ronald Reagan signed a bill designating the third Monday in January to honor King, who was born on January 15, 1929 in ((the southeastern city of)) Atlanta, Georgia.

The U.S. Congress designated the King holiday as a national day of service in 1994, a move aimed at encouraging Americans to take part in community projects.

King first rose to prominence in 1955 when he led a successful boycott of the public bus lines in the southern city of Montgomery, Alabama, forcing the city to end its practice of segregation of black passengers. He would go on to become the foremost public figure of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and '60s, inspiring millions with his famous "I Have a Dream" speech during the 1963 March on Washington.
