" It's extremely important in shifting what needs to happen, and we certainly hope that the administration leverages its leadership in the days between now and the CITES meeting to encourage other governments to follow this lead. " Including the 27-member European Community which Lieberman expects to vote as a bloc in support of the ban. As the world's leading consumer, Japan opposes the measure, and could take a reservation or opt out of the treaty and continue fishing. However, since Japan depends largely on tuna imports, Lieberman says the focus will be on ensuring other countries don't opt out as well to supply the Japanese market. in the first sentence of paragraph 2, which word is the predicate of the whole sentence? Thanks very much for your attention.

You have given us only a single paragraph; there is no paragraph 2. I can tell you that the 2nd sentence is not a complete sentence; it is a fragment only.

Mister MicawberT 'Everyday' is a mistake, too-- and a common one for non-native speakers.

I wish it were limited to non-native speakers. We're trying very hard to keep our HR department from continuing to use it in a new recruitment campaign. They seem to think we're being overly pedantic by telling them to change it to "every day."

yes, that's the sentence i wanna ask about. but is that all right to not to have a complete sentence here? is it some kind of special structure or usage? what's the function of the fragment?

and another question:

" Every 3 days the same amount of people that died in Hiroshima from the bomb, die everyday from hunger. " 

i know the author means that every day there are people dying and every 3 days the amount of dead people is as much as that of victim of bomb.but in terms of grammar, "everyday" is a adjective, and can only be used before noun. how to explain this?
The fragment is wrong. The editor made a mistake. 'Everyday' is a mistake, too-- and a common one for non-native speakers.
