From NPR News in Washington, I'm Craig Windham.

 

A US Navy destroyer docked at a port in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia today loaded with more than 50 tons of emergency supplies for the tens of thousands of people forced to flee their homes by the fighting with Russian forces. GOP Senator Richard Lugar of Indiana was in the Georgian capitol Tbilisi today. He said the aid shipment will not be the last. " It's a part at least of trying to bring about stability and a great sense of humanity in which Americans care and we're attempting to display that everyday and will be  for quite some time." Georgia's Defense Minister said with the arrival of the US relief supplies, people there will feel safer because, in his words, they're not alone in facing Russian aggression.

 

A suicide bomber wearing a vest packed with explosives detonated a blast during a celebration in western Baghdad today. The BBC's Kristen Gerald reports.

 

The explosion killed at least 21 people and injured more than two dozen others. The attack happened at the home of a tribal chief, just outside the Iraqi capitol. Scores of people had gathered for a dinner organized by an anti al-Qaeda group. The dead include women and children. The injured have been taken to a hospital in the nearby city of Fallujah where mosques are calling on people to donate blunt. The militia that was attacked was from the Tribal Awakening, Sunni gunmen who're now fighting against al-Qaeda rather than alongside them. The movements helped to reduce violence in Iraq. It is a continual target for Sunni insurgents. The BBC's Kristen Gerald reporting.

 

On the eve of the start of the Democratic National Convention in Denver, the convention Rule's Committee, Credential's Committee voted to restore full voting rights to Michigan and Florida today putting to rest a controversy that was once a key point of contention between Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton. More from Michigan Public Radio's Rick Pluta in Denver.

 

The two states have their votes reduced by half as punishment for jumping ahead of other States to host January primaries. They were challenging the early influence of Iowa and New Hampshire. Party leaders say it's time to put the controversy to rest and focus on winning in November. But US Senator Carl Levin of Michigan says he's not giving up the fight to shake up the schedule of primaries and caucuses to give states like his a bigger voice. "The system will not be changed unless some folks who take up the cudgels, take up the cards to change this New Hampshire-Iowa domination." But he says that will have to wait until after the November election. The apparent Democratic nominee Barack Obama has called for a commission to look into how the party nominated the presidential candidates. For NPR News, I'm Rick Pluta in Denver.

 

A jet liner that reported technical problem shortly after taking off from the capital of Kyrgyzstan today crashed. About 70 people were died, nearly two dozen survived. In Guatemala, a small plane crashed killing ten people, at least half of them Americans.

 

This is NPR News from Washington.

 

Gasoline prices have dropped $0.15 a gallon over the past two weeks. The average price nationally for self-service regular is now $3.70 a gallon. Industry analyst ** cites two reasons for the change. The drama comes from lower gasoline demand because of high price and from lower profit margins for both refiners and gasoline retailers. ** says gas prices typically decline at this time of year as the summer driving season ends.

 

The Summer Olympics have ended in Beijing today. The closing day included more medals for the US team, but China finished with far more gold medals than any other country. NPR's Howard Berkes has more from Beijing.

 

China had worked its athletes hard for an impressive showing at the hometown Olympics and they responded with 51 gold medals, 15 more than the Unite States. The US won more medals overall and more in a non-boycott Olympics in more than a century. The American Men's basketball team won gold today by beating Spain in a game that was tougher than expected. The so-called redeem team won the first major international victory for American Basketball in eight years. The American Men's volleyball team beat Brazil for its first gold medal in the sport in twenty years and the first medal of any kind since 1992. And Men's water polo team wasn't expected to make the medal round, but ended up winning silver in a loss to Hungary. Howard Berkes, NPR News, Beijing.

 

The White House says eight American activists were deported from China. During the closing ceremonies they had been arrested and released for trying to stage protests concerning Tibet. US embassy issued a statement expressing disappointment that the Olympics had not brought more openness and tolerance to China.

这个到还真没细想过呢。
查了下Olympics: (pl.)(=Olympic Games) 确实应该是复数解。
不过google上确也查到不少Olympics做单数的用法。比如像这种:The '84 Games was a boycotted Olympics

我猜莫非做奥运会赛事统称或者一届奥运会之类的时候,可以看作单数?还是美国人本来就对这个用法比较随意?

不过音频里面倒确实是有这个a的。

唉,就按音频来吧,有a,偶也晕了,谢谢ps哈
