From NPR News in Washington, I'm Jack Speer.

 

The Democratic National Convention in Denver has begun. Party Chief Howard Dean officially gaveled the four-day gathering to order, where the faiths are expected to rally round and nominate Barack Obama to be the party candidate for the White House. The 45th quadrennial National Convention of the Democratic Party will now come to order. On tap for later tonight, a tribute to Massachusetts Senator Edward Kennedy who is currently battling brain cancer, and a speech from Michelle Obama in which she's expected to present what the campaign referred to as a personal view of her husband. Senator Obama meanwhile campaigned today in Davenport, Iowa, the state where he won the caucuses back in early January starting a string of victories that led to his capturing the nomination. NPR's Don Gonyea is traveling with the Democratic hopeful.

 

In an appearance before an invited audience of about 250 at a fairground not far from the Mississippi River, Senator Obama continued his attacks on John McCain, saying McCain is running a campaign not based on ideas but rather one that focuses more on tearing down the Democratic candidate. "And the truth, and most people don't really think John McCain is gonna shake things up. The real argument that Republicans are making is Obama's risking. They're not talking about their plans, they are talking about me. " Obama says the real risk is in electing someone who will continue the policies of George W. Bush. Senator Obama campaigns over the next two days in Missouri and Montana before arriving at the Democratic Convention in Denver on Wednesday. His acceptance speech is Thursday. Don Gonyea, NPR News, traveling with the Obama campaign in Davenport.

 

GOP presidential candidate John McCain called Obama an honorable man this morning in the event in Phoenix, but said there are stark differences between them. McCain then spent much of the rest of his day raising money in California. From member station KXJZ in Sacramento, Ben Adler reports.

 

The Arizona Senator stopped on his way into a downtown Sacramento hotel to greet a modest crowd of supporters and protesters. Sacramento resident Diana Brate held a McCain Romney '08 sign, "I really believe this would be the ticket that would take him over the top. " and said she is worried about Barack Obama's tax policies. "I think that'll just tank the whole economy whatever we have left. " After McCain's lunchtime fund-raiser, 1, 000 dollars a plate or 2, 300 dollars for entrance in a McCain '08 lapel pin, the Senator headed for Southern California for an evening fund-raiser in Beverly Hills. He also takes an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show". For NPR News, I'm Ben Adler in Sacramento.

 

On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 241 points today, ending the session at 11, 386. The NASDAQ was down 49 points to close at 2, 365. The Standard & Poor's 500 fell 25 points today. This is NPR News.

 

The European Union and the US are calling for the two breakaway provinces in Georgia, South Ossetia and Abkhazia, to remain part of Georgia, despite unanimous vote by Russia's Parliament that would grant the rest of Republics their independence. German Chancellor Angela Merkel today said recognizing the two provinces as independent would create a very difficult and critical situation for the territorial integrity of Georgia. The White House voiced a similar view, while also announcing the Vice President Dick Cheney will make a trip to the former Soviet Republic next month.

 

Up to ten inches of rain is expected to cross parts of Georgia this week, the effects of tropical depression Fay. NPR's Kathy Lohr has more.

 

Fay's strongest effects have been felt in the southern part of the state where heavy rain pounded Grady County. Some six thousands homes and businesses were without power over the weekend and a ten-year-old boy drowned while playing in a drainage ditch, apparently swept up in the rushing water. Fay is blamed for a total of 13 deaths, eleven in Florida, one in Georgia and one in Alabama. In north Georgia forecasters say as much as ten inches of rain could fall in / next couple of days. In this region, which has experienced three years of drought, the rain is a welcome relief. More than three million people get their drinking water from Lake Lanier, and that reservoir is more than 17 feet below what's considered full. As the storm moves across the southeast, forecasters say parts of Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi and eastern Louisiana are likely to get several inches of rain. Kathy Lohr, NPR News, Atlanta.

 

Crude Oil Futures ended the session slightly lower today. The near-month contract for benchmark grade crude fell 14 cents a barrel, to end the session at 114 dollars and 45 cents a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

好栏目推荐之美国口语俚语

to 谈笑

 

This would be the ticket that will take him over the top. 这句是偶错了 ,over还以为只能是副词,原来介词也是可以的,画蛇贴足了...

至于“如果有to就没有the,就是that will take him over to top”,是从语法判断的,还是读音上判断的?

 

 

she is worried about Barack Obama's tax policies

这里前面的是she said过去时,所以后面改成过去了,读音上嘛,实在很难说到底是哪个~

 

ps:偶的能力离啥啥字还远,表亵渎这个词...

我也以为over不能做介词,所以觉得over和top之间必须有个介词,刚好你说道to,我就觉得可能是that will take him over to top,说实话,to, in,at,the,a这几个词我觉得更多是听不出来的,都是根据上下文判断出来的。

 

从语法上说确实是was,不过读的确实是is。行,我知道了,我会在发布的整理稿中注明一下的。
