This is What's Trending Today. It should come as no surprise that some of the top trending stories and names this week are tied to the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. A few examples are #opening ceremony, Michael Phelps, Katie Ledecky, Catalina Usme and Pita Taufatofua. American swimmers Phelps and Ledecky have gold medals at the Rio Olympics. Usme, a member of Colombia's soccer team, had two goals Tuesday night against Team USA in a surprise 2-2 tie. And Taufatofua carried the flag for Tonga during the opening ceremony last Friday. But another top online search is the term "refugee team." People around the world, but mainly in Canada, Australia and the United States, are looking for more information about the 10-member refugee team at the Rio Games. That information comes from Google, the search engine. The International Olympic Committee set up the refugee team in an effort to bring more attention on refugees from Africa and the Middle East. Over the past two years, there has been a large increase in the number of refugees worldwide. The United Nations' Refugee Agency says there are over 65 million displaced people. That number rose by almost 6 million last year. The UN agency says people originally from Syria, Afghanistan and Somalia make up the largest group of refugees. The refugee team at the Olympics includes athletes from Syria, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Ethiopia. Swimmer Yusra Mardini came from Syria. She is now living in Germany. She competed in two swimming events, and teammate Rami Anis, also from Syria, competed in a men's swimming event. Mardini is the most popular refugee athlete, based on web searches. People searched for Popole Misenga of Democratic Republic of Congo after he won his first event in the 90 kilogram judo competition. He was ousted in the next round. The refugee team is getting attention. But some people think the world is only interested in refugees when they are performing at the Olympics. Google reports that in September 2015, "refugee crisis" was a popular search term. But now there are relatively few searches using those words, while the term "refugee team" is trending. Roger Cohen wrote an opinion piece for The New York Times this week. It is called "The World Loves Refugees, When They're Olympians." He wrote that "the world is moved by Team Refugees. Yet, it is unmoved by refugees." He urged people cheering for the refugees at the Olympics to show the same interest and compassion for those refugees who are living in their community or country. And that's What's Trending Today. I'm Dan Friedell.

大家好，这里是《今日热点》节目。本周名列前茅的一些热搜词均与2016年里约奥运有关，这也是意料之中的事儿 。其中包括#开幕式、菲尔普斯、姬蒂·雷德基、卡塔莉娜以及皮塔 。美国泳将菲尔普斯和雷德基均在里约奥运会上斩获数枚金牌 。而在周二晚上的对决中，哥伦比亚足球队员卡塔莉娜个人进两球，与美国队扳成平手 。而皮塔则于周五的开幕式上担任汤加旗手 。而榜上有名的另一条热搜词是“难民代表团” 。
开幕式后，全球各地的人民，主要是加拿大、澳大利亚和美国，都在寻找这个里约奥运会上由10名难民撑起的难民代表团 。上述信息由浏览器谷歌提供 。国际奥组委本次设立该难民代表团的目的是，让世界更加关注来自非洲和中东的诸多难民 。在过去的两年中，全球各地难民数量激增 。联合国难民署表示，目前全球有6500多万流离失所的难民 。这一数字于去年又上涨了600万 。联合国难民署称，其中，来自叙利亚、阿富汗和索马里的难民是最多的 。而里约奥运会上的难民代表团成员来自叙利亚、南苏丹、刚果和埃塞俄比亚 。泳将萌妹马尔迪尼也来自叙利亚 。目前居住在德国 。马尔迪尼参加了两个游泳赛事，其队友拉米也来自叙利亚，参加了一项男子泳赛 。通过网页搜索得知，马尔迪尼是最受欢迎的难民运动员 。而来自刚果的难民运动员Popole在90公斤柔道比赛中获得首胜后，其名字也成为热搜词之一 。尽管他在第二轮比赛中淘汰 。但难民代表团因他们的身影而获得了更多关注 。但有一些人担心，只有奥运会的举办才能让人们注意到他们 。据谷歌2015年9月的一则报道，“难民危机”曾是热搜词 。但现在已经相对没有关于类似难民危机的热搜词了，而随之流行的热搜词是“难民代表团” 。本周，罗杰为《纽约时报》撰写了社论 。名为《世界人民只爱难民运动员，而非难民》 。文中写道，“世界人民被难民运动员感动” 。“但却不为难民所动” 。罗杰呼吁人们在为难民选手振臂高呼展现兴趣和同情心时，请同样对待与难民选手居住在同样社区或国家的其他难民们 。以上就是今天的《今日热点》节目 。感谢收听丹为您播报的VOA慢速新闻 。
