In results from the Beijing Olympics, some major combats to the pool when it helps swimmer Michael Phelps capture his second gold medal of the Games. And the other that prevented American Katie Hoff from getting the gold. The 100-meter relay by Jason Lezak and  the Men's 400- Meter Freestyle which Phelps swam the lead help the U.S team take the gold medal from the French, marked the second gold medal for Phelps at this year's games. Hoff led in the final term of the women's 400 freestyle, was defeated however by Rebecca Adlington of Britain. This year's Olympics are shaping up to be perhaps the most-watched ever Summer Games with 114 million viewers tuning in for at least part of the broadcast over the first two days.

 

Pilots of Delta and Northwest have agreed to cooperate under one contract if the airline gets federal approval to merge. Delta's acquisition over Northwest would create the world's largest airline. From member station WABE in Atlanta, Charles Edwards reports.

 

With the agreement, Atlanta-based Delta and Northwest have done something unprecedented. That's according to Captain Robert Hazzard, a spokesperson for Delta's Pilots Union. "What a significance is today's announcement. This is the first time in the history of any airline merger that a pilot contract has been agreed to by both the company and both pilots groups in advance of the course of the merger."  Airline industry experts say such free in merger deals are important, they pointed it back to 2005 when U.S Airways bought America West.

President Bush today told reporters in the White House Rose Garden that recent actions by Russia against the former Soviet Republic of Georgia represent a dramatic and brutal escalation of violence. And just back from the Beijing Olympics, the president pressed Moscow to accept an immediate cease-fire and pull back its troops.

 

Russia's government must respect Georgia's territorial integrity and sovereignty. The Russian government must reverse the course it appears to beyond and accept this peace agreement as a first step toward resolving this conflict.

 

Fighting comes on the heels of a Georgian offensive that began last week, to try and regain control of the restive province of South Ossetia. Mikheil Saakashvili, President of the former Soviet Republic, says Russian forces have captured several towns, a military base and a main highway near the central city of Gori, essentially, cutting the country in half. John McCain meanwhile is stepping up his criticism of Russia. For member station WITF in Harrisburg, Scott Detrow reports.

 

McCain's calling for an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council and the G-7 to address the crisis. Though he says the United States shouldn't get involved militarily, the Arizona Senator says he’d send Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to Russia to mediate. McCain says he's suspicious of Russia's motives.

 

I think it's very clear that Russian ambitions are to restore the old Russian Empire, not the Soviet Union but the Russian Empire which means on near abroad, which means you have great influence or control over surrounding countries.

 

The presumptive Republican Presidential Nominee says it's clear Vladimir Putin is still calling the shot in Russia, despite handing over the presidency to Dimtry Medvedev earlier this year. For NPR News, I am Scott Detrow in Harrisburg.

 

Federal agents descended on New Orleans’/s/ housing organization hired by the city to clean up some of the damage(损失时是不可数的) from Hurricane Katrina today. The raid was part of a broader fraud investigation into New Orleans'/s/ Affordable Housing Corporation. NPR's Dina Temple-Raston reports.

 

FBI and IRS officials arrived at the New Orleans'/s/ Affordable Homeownership Corp. or NAHO with a subpoena related to a broader fraud investigation. At issue is whether the non-profit company billed the city for work that was never performed. According to officialsfamiliar with the probe, NOHO was supposed to help low-income and elderly victims of Hurricane Katrina. Under its agreement with the city, NOHO was supposed to hire contractors to demolish or gut homes ravaged by the hurricane. Investigators have found among other things, that homes that were supposed to have been destroyed were still standing. A Federal Grand Jury authorized federal agents to collect documents related to the non-profit company's finances and its client files. Dina Temple-Raston, NPR News.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 48 points to end the session at 11,782.
