From NPR News in Washington, I am Jack Speer.

 

Russia has stopped military co-operation with NATO in response to NATO's decision earlier this week to freeze consultations with Russia. The standoff comes because of Russia's refusal to pull its troops out of Georgia. NPR's Michael Shuster reports from Brussels.

 

We heard the Russian news agency quoted Moscow's Ambassador to NATO Dmitry Rogozin as saying the Russian defense ministry has frozen military co-operation with the alliance. How long this freeze will last and what precisely would mean is not yet clear. But the action was confirmed by NATO's spokeswoman Carmen Romero who said NATO had heard from the Russian defense ministry that it had halt to take military co-operation with the Brussels-based alliance. Earlier this week, NATO took similar action declaring there will be no business as usual with Russia as long as Russian troops remained in Georgia. NATO and Russia have co-operated in various ways for many years including some joint exercises. Perhaps most important this year Russia agreed to let NATO use its territory to transport some supplies to NATO forces in Afghanistan. Neither side could say whether this would be affected by the mutual freezes.  Michael Shuster, NPR News, Brussels.

 

There are continued mixed reports out of the former Soviet Republic of Georgia today where some of the reservists reported seeing Russian tanks roving through the Georgian countryside towards home even as Russian troops were digging trenches and building fortifications in key areas of Georgia. Russian President Dmitry Medvedeve has said the forces will pull back from Georgia tomorrow. The cease-fire agreement calls for Russian and Georgian forces to both pull back to the respected positions held before fight erupted there two weeks ago.

 

Torrential rains continue to fall in central Florida as barely moving Tropical Storm Fay torments the state again today flooding thousands of residents out of their homes. From member station WLAN in Miami, Few Lasken reports.

 

Fay's still spinning just off Florida's northeast coast near Daytona Beach with tropical storm forces wings. It's motion is nearly stationary meaning it would continue dumping buckets of rain on already waterlog areas. That could see more than 2 feet of precipitation. Police and National Guard Troops have been busy of evacuation residents from flooded areas in hard hit Brevard County. At an EOC briefing this morning, Florida Governor Charlie Crist urged residents not to panic.

 

So it ensured to continue to monitor local news for information pertinent to their geographic location. They should stay calm, stay smart and make sure that they stay safe.

 

Although Fay has stalled, forecasters do expect it to come ashore in Florida for a third time in a week then cross over the peninsula drenching the northern part of the state through the weekend. For NPR News, I am Few Lasken in Miami.

 

Federal Reserve Board Chinaman Ben Bernanke and central bankers are gathering this week in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for their annual symposium. The most analysts are expecting a few details about future possible Fed actions. Bernanke is scheduled to speak tomorrow morning at the conference.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 12 points today closing at 11,430. The NASDAQ lost 8 points.

 

This is NPR.

 

It turns out there may have been something to all that talked about speculators influencing the oil market after all. Accoring to a published report today, a single energy conglomerate, one pointed last month, held more than 10% of all futures contracts on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The Washington Post reports that when the Commodity Futures Trading Commission examined the books of a private Swiss energy conglomerate, they found the firm held 11% of all the oil contracts on the Exchange. CFTC says it found more than 80% of oil contracts that now makes were held by financial firms speculating either for themselves or clients.

 

Nearly a decade after US health officials declared measles is officially eliminated in the US, cases are now on the rise. NPR's Petin Nimen reports.

 

Officials within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report 131 new measles cases so for this year. That's already more than 3 times the number of cases reported for all of last year. In some cases, children were too young to be vaccinated but in half the cases, children were not vaccinated because of parents' religious beliefs, many were home-schooled and so not subject  to vaccination rules that are applied in public schools. 15 patients were hospitalized, no deaths have been reported. Before the measles vaccination was viable, millions of people got infected every year. Thousands were hospitalized and hundreds died. Health officials say they are working to educate parents about the safety of the vaccine and the lack of evidences of dangerous side effects. Petin Nimen, NPR News.

 

Big jumped oil prices today in near month contract for benchmark great cruel was up 5 dollars and 62 cents a barrel ended session at $121.18 a barrel.

原帖由 cxc-谈笑一生 于 2008-8-24 01:54 PM 发表   我觉得continued也是Reports的定语,这里reports有两个定语continued和mixed   对了,mixed这里怎么翻译呢?继续的混合的报道?http://game.irelandbbs.com/temp/taobao/057.gif    

 

我语法知识比较薄弱哈,斗胆问一句,不是adj不能修饰adj的嘛。

既然continued只能做adj,怎么可以形容mixed的呢?
