Smart Mother Goose Asks Police Officer To Help Free Her Entangled Gosling机智的母天鹅求救警官On Monday, May 9, James Givens, a police officer in Cincinnati, Ohio, was sitting in his cruiser when he heard what sounded like a knock. He turned around only to find a goose pecking at the car door. This was highly unusual given that the birds typically preferred to observe humans from a distance.5月9日周一那天,俄亥俄州辛辛那提的警官James Givens正坐在自己的巡警车中。突然,他听到类似敲门的声音。转过头来,却发现是只天鹅在用嘴啄门。鸟类看到人通常都躲得远远的,这只天鹅的举动着实奇怪。But on this day, the goose appeared to be determined to get his attention and kept pecking until Givens opened the car door and stepped out. The police officer says that though the bird then began to walk away, it kept turning around to make sure he was following. When they finally stopped, Givens realized why the mother goose had been so persistent — She needed help to free her gosling that had managed to get entangled in some balloon string.今天这只天鹅却很坚定,一直不停啄门,直到Givens打开车门走了下来。Givens说,虽然他出来后这只天鹅也走开了,但它边走边回头看,确认他是否跟在后面。直到他们在一处停下来,Givens才明白为什么母天鹅会如此坚定——它的孩子被气球绳困住了,需要人类救助。Worried that the mother goose would attack him if he got close to the baby, Givens called the local SPCA chapter. Unfortunately, they were unable to dispatch anyone to help right away. Concerned that the gosling would not survive the delay, fellow police officer Cecilia Charron, who had just joined Givens, decided to take on the task herself.Givens害怕如果走近小天鹅,母天鹅会啄他。于是,他先给当地动物保护协会打了电话。不幸的是,他们目前暂时派不出人手。他的同事Cecilia Charron担心不赶紧救出这些小天鹅,它就会死掉,于是打算亲自上手。As it turned out, there was nothing to worry about. The mother goose appeared to realize that Charron was trying to help and watched patiently from a safe distance as the officer untangled the trapped bird. As soon as the little gosling was free, it trotted to its mom, and the duo took off shortly after. Charron, a 24-year veteran of the police force, said this would probably go down as the most memorable incident of her career!事实明,并没什么可担心的。母天鹅似乎知道Charron是在帮助她的孩子,它站在安全的距离,耐心看着警官解开困住小天鹅的绳子。小天鹅刚获救,就冲向它妈妈,随后它们很快飞走了。24岁的Charron是位经验丰富的警官,她说救助小天鹅将会成为她职业生涯中最难忘的事。译文属原创,仅供学习和交流使用,未经许可,。 /201606/450397

A Brief Introduction of Mid-Autumn Festival中秋节概述On the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar, the moon is round and the Chinese people mark their Moon (or Mid-autumn) Festival. The round shape to a Chinese means family reunion. Therefore the Moon Festival is a holiday for members of a family to get together wherever it is possible. On that day sons and daughters will bring their family members back to their parents#39; house for a reunion. Sometimes people who have aly settled overseas will come back to visit their parents on that day.在农历8月份的第15天,月亮是圆的,中国人把这一天定为月亮(或中秋节)节。圆圆的形状,以一个中国人意味着与家人团聚。因此,中秋节是家庭成员聚在一起的日子,无论在哪里都是可能的。在那一天,儿子和女儿们都将携各自的家庭成员回到自己父母家团聚。有时候,已经在国外定居的人会在那一天回来看望他们的父母。 /201607/453993

  So that’s what makes tea taste how it does (not to mention energise its drinkers). But why do these melanges of molecules mean so much to British people? And what does your preference, in terms of tea type and how you drink it, mean about you?人类学家凯特#8226;福克斯(Kate Fox)在其专著《瞧这些英国人/英国人的言行潜规则》(Watching the English)一书中写道,不论何时,英国人泡茶的举动都在明确地传递出一些信息。她发现,一般来说,工人阶级喝的都是最浓烈的红茶,它所含的这些分子的剂量是最大的。而随着一个人所处社会阶层的提升,其所饮用的茶也逐渐变得清淡。Anthropologist Kate Fox writes in her book Watching the English that there are several clear messages sent whenever a Brit makes a cuppa. She observes that the strongest brews of black tea – with the largest doses of these molecules – are typically drunk by the working class. The brew gets progressively weaker as one goes up the social ladder.饮茶时牛奶和糖的使用,有它们自身的阶级惯例。她写道:“许多人把往茶里加糖视为一种明确无误的下层阶级的行为标志。即便只加了一匙糖,也足以令人对你的出身产生一丝怀疑(除非你生在约1955年之前);如果加了不止一匙糖,那你充其量只是个中产阶级中的下层人士;超过两匙,那你绝对属于工人阶级。”另外,如果有牛奶的话,还有一些关于何时加牛奶以及怎样加牛奶的行为准则。福克斯指出,品味热气缭绕的不加糖不加奶的正山小种红茶,俨然已成为中产人士对于自身阶级充满焦虑的一种象征。无论是这种喝法,还是加糖加奶、浓烈强劲、简单实用的“建筑工人茶(Builder’s tea)”,都穷尽了所有可能的选择。Milk and sweetener have their own codes. “Taking sugar in your tea is regarded by many as an infallible lower-class indicator: even one spoonful is a bit suspect (unless you were born before about 1955); more than one and you are lower-middle at best; more than two and you are definitely working class,” she writes. Other rules involve when and how milk is added, if any. Making a point of drinking smoky Lapsang Souchong with no sugar or milk can be a sign of class anxiety in the middle class, Fox suggests: it’s as far as possible as one can get from sweet, strong, milky mugs of the no-nonsense ‘builder’s tea’. 除了奇妙的化学特性,饮茶还是一种绝对可靠的社交手段。As for why the British drink an infusion of imported dried leaves at all, there are historical reasons aplenty for why tea came to wash up on Britain’s shores. And one could come up with any number of rationales for why the current state of affairs was inevitable (boiling water to make tea, for instance, made it less likely to give you a stomach bug).许多历史缘故足以解释为何大量茶叶登陆不列颠海岸,英国人得以享用浸泡进口干燥茶叶所得到的饮品。人们可以想出许多理由来解释,为什么英国人对茶的钟爱是不可避免的(例如,沸水烹茶可以降低你罹患胃病的可能性)。A food scientist I once corresponded with pointed out something that seems to apply here. “In my opinion, food choices are driven by one’s environment – the context,” he wrote. You like what you like not necessarily because of any intrinsic quality, though obviously one can develop a taste for almost anything. A food or drink’s real importance in your life may be because of everything the surrounds it – the culture of it.我曾拜访过的一位食品科学家所提出的某些观点适用于此。他写道:“在我看来,一个人选择什么食物是由他的环境,亦即生活背景所决定的。”你喜欢你所喜爱的事物,这并不一定取决于该事物的任何内在质量。显而易见,人对于几乎所有事物都能发展出喜爱之情。一种食物或者一种饮品在你生活中的真实的重要性很可能取决于其周边的事物,即其自身的文化。Fox observes that in truth, alongside its chemical properties, tea is an infallible social space-filler. After having detailed the cultural meanings behind different methods of tea preparation, Fox writes, “Tea-making is the perfect displacement activity: whenever the English feel awkward or uncomfortable in a social situation (that is, almost all the time), they make tea.”福克斯注意到,除了奇妙的化学特性,饮茶实际上还是一种绝对可靠的社交手段。在详细指出不同的茶叶制备方法所蕴含的文化意味后,福克斯写道:“泡茶时一种完美的转移注意力的活动。每当英国人在社交场合中觉得尴尬或者不自在(也就是,几乎所有时间),他们就会沏茶。”It’s also interesting to note that some of the molecules involved in the flavour of teas likely evolved as defenses against being eaten by birds, insects and other creatures. That is somewhat ironic, given how vigorously we humans seek it out – and how many social meanings we’ve attached to it.同样有趣的是,与茶香有关的某些分子很可能是因为为了茶叶免于被鸟类、昆虫和其他生物吃掉而进化而来的。再想想我们人类苦苦探索茶叶使人精力充沛的原因,以及我们给品茶所赋予的诸多社交意味,这多少带有几分讽刺意味。 /201606/450211

  A new report published recently has linked for the first time several lifestyle factors including obesity and consumption of processed meat and alcohol, with an increased risk of stomach cancer.最近公布的一项新的报告,首次将一些生活方式因素,例如肥胖、肉食和酒精的消耗,与加重胃癌风险联系在一起。After an analysis of global research, the World Cancer Research Fund International found that processed meat, alcohol, obesity and a diet high in salted food can all contribute to the disease.世界癌症研究基金会,在全球进行了一项数据分析之后发现,肉食、酒精、肥胖和高盐视频都会导致疾病。The review looked at 89 studies from all around the world and a total of 77,000 cases of stomach cancer. The evidence builds upon the findings from the organization’s last review on stomach cancer published in the 2007 Second Expert Report.这一综述结合了世界各地的89项研究以及胃癌的77,000个病例。根据这一组织在2007年发布的第二次专家报告的最新综述,这些据更加清晰了。The report looked at the two main types of stomach cancer, cardia and non-cardia.这一报告主要讲述了两种主要类型的胃癌:贲门癌和非贲门癌。Cardia stomach cancer is located at the top of the stomach and is more commonly found in high-income countries.贲门癌的位置在胃的顶部,而且在高收入国家更加常见。Bacon and other overly-processed food such as salted fish and salted vegetables contribute to the risk of stomach cancer.培根以及其他过度处理的食品,如咸鱼和腌菜等会增加胃癌风险。Non-cardia stomach cancer affects the rest of the stomach, and, as well as being more common in Asia, is also associated with H.pylori infection, a bacterial infection that can cause stomach ulcers.非贲门癌会影响胃的其他部位,在亚洲比较常见,而且和幽门螺旋杆菌感染有关,这种细菌感染可以导致胃溃疡。From the analysis strong evidence suggests that 50g a day of processed meat, equivalent to two rashers of bacon, increases the risk of non-cardia stomach cancer by 18 per cent.数据的强有力据显示,每天50克精加工的肉食,相当于2片培根,可以增加非贲门癌风险系数高达18%。 /201607/452881Significantly warmer winters have played an important role in the ongoing decline in EU greenhouse gas emissions.暖冬对欧盟国家温室气体排放量的持续下降起到了显著作用。According to a new report, the use of CO2 and other gases across the bloc dropped by almost a quarter between 1990 and 2014. A switch from coal to natural gas, the recession and the rise of renewable energy all contributed to the fall. The latest figures show that a milder winter was the major factor in the reduction.根据一项最新报告显示,欧盟国家二氧化碳及其他气体的总排放量在1990年至2014年间下降了近四分之一。由煤炭转用天然气、经济衰退以及可再生能源的兴起都对这一下降起到了作用。而最新数据表明,一个更暖和的冬天是这一数据下降的最主要因素。Overall from 1990 to 2014 emissions across the member states of the European Union fell by 24.4%, easily beating the 2020 target of 20% put forward as part of the first international agreement on climate change, the Kyoto Protocol.总的来说,1990年至2014年期间,欧盟成员国的温室气体总排放量减少了24.4%,大大超过首个国际气候变化协议“京都议定书”所定下的2020年减排20%的目标。Importantly, the EU managed to reduce emissions in this period while economic output rose by 47%.重要的是,欧盟是在经济产量上升47%的同时成功降低了排放量。The keys to cutting warming emissions over the period have been a big switch from coal to gas for electricity production, the rise of renewable energy, better home insulation and the economic recession of 2008. But milder weather has contributed as well. In 2014, when emissions fell by 4.1%, it was the most important factor.而这一时间温室气体排放量减少的关键在于:发电由使用煤炭转向使用天然气,可再生能源的兴起,更优良的房屋绝缘以及2008年的经济衰退。但是暖冬也起到了同样重要的作用。2014年排放量下降的4.1%中,暖冬是最主要的因素。;If you look at the 24 year period, there is some warming in Europe and this has contributed to lower heat demand and lower greenhouse gas emissions,; said Ricardo Fernandez from the European Environment Agency who compiled the figures. ;In the last two years it has even been stronger - in 2014 you can see that, while its not the only factor, by and large it#39;s due to the milder winter conditions in Europe.;负责收集这些数据的欧洲环境总署的里卡多·费尔南德兹表示:“如果回顾这24年,你会发现欧洲气候在变暖,而这减少了人们对暖气的需求并降低了温室气体排放。过去两年,减排效果更为显著,可以看出2014年的减排大致上是因为欧洲冬天气候趋暖所致。虽然这不是唯一的因素。”That mild, wet winter was felt particularly in Germany and the UK, and it is reductions in domestic heating demand in both those countries that accounts for just under half the decline across the 28 states that year.德国和英国的冬天尤其令人觉得温和、潮湿,而家庭暖气需求的减少使这两个国家的减排量占欧盟28国近一半的总减排量。Overall though, over the past 24 years the UK and Germany have both been major movers in helping to reduce greenhouse gases - in that time UK emissions have dropped by by 34.3%.总的来说,英国与德国是过去24年来欧盟减排的最大推动力,英国在这期间减排多达34.3%。 /201606/451920

  Just days after voting to leave the European Union, more than 2 million Britons and UK residents had signed a petition calling for a second vote, forcing lawmakers to at least consider a debate on the issue.仅在脱欧公投的第二天,就有超两百万的英国人和英国居民签名请愿进行二次公投,迫使立法者至少就此事进行商讨。Parliament has to consider a debate on any petition posted on its website that attracts more than 100,000 signatures.议会不得不就网上签署的超过100000的请愿书展开讨论。The proposal, posted before the June 23 referendum, said the government should hold another plebiscite on EU membership if the support for Leave or Remain in a referendum was less than 60 percent in a turnout of under 75 percent of eligible voters.6月23日公投前的议案表示,如果在公投中,如果参与投票的合格选民比例低于75%,且持脱欧或留欧中任一方的投票率低于60%时,政府应该举行第二次对欧盟成员权的公投。The result on Thursday saw 52 percent of voters, 17,410,742 people, back a British exit, on a turnout of 72 percent.周四投票结果显示,在72%出席投票的人当中,有52%的投票者(即17410742人)持英国脱欧。Since then, the petition -- which only British citizens or UK residents have the right to sign -- was proving so popular that by 1725 GMT on Saturday, 2,005,101 people had signed it.而截至格林威治时间周六下午17:25,这场只有英国公民和英国常住居民才有权利投票的签名请愿,已有2005101人进行投票,可见其受欢迎的程度。By late afternoon, it appeared to be rising at a rate of more than 3,000 signatures a minute.傍晚时,签名民众的人数以每分钟超3000人的速度增长。Most of those who signed were based in areas where support for staying in the EU was strongest, most especially London, the website indicated.据网站信息表明,大部分签名群众主要来自于强烈持留欧的地区,尤其是伦敦。Prime Minister David Cameron, who said on Friday he would resign after leading the failed campaign to keep Britain in the EU, had said there would be no second referendum.英国首相大卫卡梅伦于周五表示,他将因未能成功争取留欧而辞职,并且声称不会再有第二次全民公投。 /201606/451443

  Labradors are responsible for more personal injury claims than any other breed - and postal workers bear the brunt, a new survey has found.拉布拉多比起其它品种的而言,伤人事件更多,一项新调查发现,首当其冲的受害者便是邮政人员。New data from a pet insurer reveals labradors as the culprit in a surprising number of claims and more than a third of the total come from postal staff and delivery drivers.宠物保险公司一份新数据显示,邮政人员与运输司机受伤事件中,有超过三分之一的罪魁祸首当属拉布拉多。The breed responsible for the most attacks on those staff specifically are German Shepherds, followed by Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Border Collies and Labradors.专门伤害这些工作人员的品种有德国牧羊犬,紧随其后的有斯塔福德#15988;犬、边境牧羊犬还有拉布拉多。The research coincides with a recent study from the Royal Mail which revealed there were 2,600 dog attacks against their staff last year, with attacks in Nottinghamshire being the most frequent.巧的是,英国皇家邮政最近一项研究最近也发现去年有2600起犬类伤害员工事件, 其中诺丁汉郡遇袭频度最高。Research from Animal Friends insurers revealed that some of the most horrific injuries included puncture wounds, scarring, nerve damage and even amputation.“动物朋友”保险公司的研究显示,最骇人的伤害包括有刺伤、留疤、神经损害,甚至还有截肢。Postal workers had to undergo a number of treatments including surgery, the insertion of pins and plates, nerve grafts and even psychological treatment for those most deeply affected.邮政人员不得不接受一系列治疗,包括有外科手术、安插钢针和钢板、 神经移植,受害最严重的甚至还要接受心理治疗。Dr Roger Mugford, an animal psychologist, said the best thing for posties to do was befriend the dogs and keep them happy by always carrying a bag of treats.动物心理学家罗杰·马格福德士称,最佳方案便是邮递员和交上朋友,经常带些小点给小哄它们开心。 /201608/458720
