They may be the symbol of good luck, but black cats have drawn the short straw in one respect: they don#39;t look good in selfies.虽然黑猫或许代表着幸运和迹象,但是有一点它却先天不足:自拍不上镜。 小编注:在有些国家的民俗中,黑猫象征着幸运和吉祥,而在有些国家的文化中,黑猫却代表着不幸和死亡。Today the RSPCA announced a rise in the number of black cats being abandoned by their owners, and attributed it to them not photographing well.近日英国防止虐待动物协会宣布,越来越多的黑猫遭到主人遗弃,因为黑猫在主人自拍时不上镜。A spokesman for the animal welfare charity said that more than 70 per cent of the 1,000 cats in its care were black, and blamed the trend for people taking pictures of themselves with their phones.该动物协会的发言人称,动物拯救中心的1000多只黑猫有70%都是黑色的。同时这位发言人还批评了人们用手机和动物自拍的跟风潮。He said: #39;There are a number of reasons for us having so many black cats, including the fact that black animals tend not to photograph as well as other cats with more distinctive markings.他说:“我们动物中心有如此之多的黑猫是多方面原因造成的,比如说主人在和宠物自拍合照时黑猫不如其他亮色猫咪上镜。”The spokesman added: #39;There is a national problem with rehoming cats of this colour.发言人补充道:“为黑猫们找到新家是一个全国性的问题。”#39;We really are puzzled as to why this still happens but we would urge people to never judge a cat by its colour and look at its personality instead.#39;“我们真的很不解,因为我们告诉过人们不要以外表和颜色来评价一只猫咪、而是要看它的个性,但黑猫遭嫌弃的情况还是屡屡发生。”Founder Ronnie McMillen, 71, said: #39;We have had a lot of black cats in this year - people don’t like black at the moment.71岁的动物救助中心创始人Ronnie McMillen说:“我们今年收留了很多黑猫——现在的人貌似不喜欢黑猫。”Animal lover Gabriella Fletcher, 20, from Stourbridge in the West Midlands owns 16-year-old black cat Susie, and regularly poses for selfies with her pet.20岁的动物爱好者Gabriella Fletcher生活在西米德兰兹郡的斯陶尔布里奇市,她拥有一只16岁的黑猫Susie。她经常和小宠物Susie一起自拍。She said: #39;It is hard to get a good picture as you can’t really see how beautiful Susie is.她说:“很难拍出好看的照片,因为照片真的无法展现出Susie真正的美丽。”#39;But it’s very sad that people feel the need to overlook them just because they are black. They are just as special as any other cat. Black cats are mysterious and so beautiful.“但人们只是因为它们浑身黝黑就嫌弃黑猫,这很悲哀。黑猫和其他任何种类的猫咪一样特别。黑猫神秘而美丽。” /201408/318608A pair of American B52 bombers flew across the disputed islands in the East China Sea on Monday, just days after China claimed the area as its own “air defence identification zone.”两架美国B-52轰炸机周一飞过东海争议岛屿上空。就在几天前,中国刚刚宣布该区域为“防空识别区”。In what appeared to be a direct challenge to the Chinese claim, the Pentagon said that the flights were a long-planned training mission and insisted that the US would continue to operate in what it considers to be international air space.这次行动明显是对中国的直接挑战,五角大楼(Pentagon)表示,此次飞行属于早就列入训练计划的任务,同时坚称美国将继续在其认为的国际空域执行任务。The Chinese were not informed of the flights.此次飞行并未告知中方。The Chinese defence ministry said on Saturday that it would establish the air zone over the group of uninhabited islands in the East China Sea in order to protect its territorial rights. Beijing also insisted that it would take “defensive emergency measures” against aircraft which entered the zone without identifying themselves.上周六,中国国防部表示将在东海这个无人居住的群岛上空建立防空识别区,以保护中国的领土主权。中国政府还坚称,对于进入该区域而未确认自己身份的飞机将采取“防御性紧急处置措施”。The Chinese claim is part of a broader push by Beijing to assert greater control over the seas that surround it and to push back against American influence in the western Pacific where the US Navy has been dominant since the end of the second world war.从更大范围上说,中国此举是其整体努力的一部分,目的是对本国海岸线外的海洋施加更大控制,逼退美国在西太平洋的影响力。自二战结束以来,美国海军一直在西太平洋地区占据霸主地位。China has also taken a more aggressive stance in recent years in defence of its claims over a series of disputed islands in the South China Sea, which are also claimed by Vietnam and the Philippines, among others.近年来,中国在宣示其对南海一系列有争议岛屿的主权主张方面也采取了更为咄咄逼人的姿态。越南、菲律宾等其他国家也宣称拥有这些岛屿的主权。The announcement of the new air zone could aggravate the aly tense dispute with Japan over the islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkaku in Japan and the Diaoyu in China.划设防空识别区可能加剧中日之间围绕东海这个群岛本已十分紧张的争端。该群岛在日本被称为尖阁诸岛(Senkaku),在中国被称为钓鱼岛及其附属岛屿。The US, which has a longstanding defence treaty with Japan, has sharply criticised the Chinese decision. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Tuesday that Beijing’s announcement was “unnecessarily inflammatory” and that it could have a “destabilising impact on the region”.对于中国这一决定,与日本签有长期安保协议的美国发表了尖锐批评。白宫发言人乔希?欧内斯特(Josh Earnest)周二表示,中国方面的宣布“毫无必要地具有煽动性”,并可能“造成破坏整个地区稳定的影响”。Chuck Hagel, the US defence secretary, issued a strongly-worded statement within hours of the Chinese announcement at the weekend, accusing China of launching “a destabilising attempt to alter the status quo in the region”.上周末,在中国发表声明几小时之后,美国国防部长查克?哈格尔(Chuck Hagel)发表一份措辞强硬的声明,谴责中国做出“一种不利于稳定的企图,目的是改变地区现状”。He said China’s “unilateral” announcement would increase “the risk of misunderstanding and miscalculations” and insisted that the Pentagon would not “in any way change how the ed States conducts military operations in the region.”他表示中方的“单边”声明会加大“误解和误判的风险”,并坚称五角大楼不会“以任何方式改变美国在该地区执行军事任务的方式”。Although the US officially does not have a position on the sovereignty dispute over the islands, Mr Hagel added that the US mutual defence treaty with Japan did include the Senkaku Islands – an indication that the US would intervene on the Japanese side if there were ever a conflict over the islands.尽管美国对东海争议岛屿主权之争没有正式立场,但哈格尔专门指出,《美日安保条约》确实覆盖尖阁诸岛。这表明,一旦发生围绕该群岛的冲突,美国将站在日本一方出手干预。Japan has also sharply criticised the Chinese announcement. Speaking on Monday, prime minister Shinzo Abe said that the Chinese attempt to restrict air traffic in the region was “unenforceable” and that it was “of no validity whatsoever to Japan”.日本也对中方声明发表了尖锐批评。日本首相安倍晋三(Shinzo Abe)周一在讲话中表示,中国试图限制该区域空中交通的企图是“无法执行的”,“对我国完全无效”。However, the Japanese government’s position was somewhat undermined after the country’s biggest commercial airlines, All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines, said that they were aly complying with Beijing’s new rules by notifying the Chinese authorities of flights through the disputed area.然而,全日空(All Nippon Airways)和日本航空(Japan Airlines)表示他们已遵循中国政府新规定,向中国官方通报了飞越争议区域的航班信息。这在一定程度上削弱了日本政府的立场。 /201311/266344;Twitter is the bird, the bird is Twitter,; the social networking company#39;s former creative director, Doug Bowman, said in a 2012 announcement about the latest redesign of the Twitter logo. Its slightly goofier predecessor had a tufted head and was sometimes accompanied by the company name; Bowman#39;s new bird was a sleeker update. Resembling a mountain bluebird with a dash of hummingbird thrown in, the Twitter bird has a beak and body that point toward the sky in what Bowman called ;the ultimate representation of freedom, hope and limitless possibility.; Unlike previous iterations since the company#39;s 2006 launch, all of which were named ;Larry the Bird; after the Boston Celtics legend, the current logo is known simply as the Twitter Bird.“Twitter就是这只鸟,这只鸟就是Twitter,”社交网络公司Twitter的前任创意总监道格·鲍曼(Doug Bowman)2012年宣布Twitter标识的最新设计时说。它的上一代略显笨拙,头上有一簇毛,有时附上公司的名称;鲍曼的新小鸟线条更明快。它类似山地蓝知更鸟,带有一点蜂鸟的影子,它的嘴和身子伸向天空,用鲍曼的话说,是“自由、希望和无限可能性的终极体现”。从2006年公司创立时的版本到此前的版本都命名为“大鸟拉里”(Larry the Bird),这个名字来自波士顿凯尔特人队的传奇人物拉里·伯德(Larry Bird)。目前的标识被简单地称为Twitter小鸟。The original Larry, to which the present icon bears little resemblance, was created by Simon Oxley, a British graphic designer who has since produced many mascots for online companies. The blue bird was just one illustration he offered for sale on the iStock website in 2006, where someone at Twitter bought it for about (you can still download a variation of it for the bargain price of ). As early adopters of the platform may recall, Oxley#39;s bird is a slender, serene fellow, adorned only by a stylized eye and perched on a branch that splits off into an elegant Japanese--influenced gathering of curlicues.现在的标识和最初的大鸟拉里几乎没有相似之处,最初版本是英国平面设计师西蒙·奥克斯利(Simon Oxley)创作,他后来为很多网络公司设计了吉祥物。那只蓝鸟只是他2006年在iStock网站上销售的一个插图,Twitter公司的人花了约15美元买下了它(现在你仍可以以11美元的特价下载一个类似的插图)。Twitter的早期用户们可能还记得,奥克斯利的小鸟更纤细、安静,只装饰着一只艺术化的眼睛,栖息在树枝上,那个树枝分裂成一个优雅的日式花饰。When Twitter selected his design, Oxley wasn#39;t even aware of the company#39;s existence. ;I seem to recall a friend sending me an email telling me,; he says now. ;It was fun to witness more and more sightings and see CNN and the B mentioning it with images of my bird alongside the story.; But because companies aren#39;t permitted to use iStock images as official logos, Twitter soon left Oxley#39;s bird behind. Biz Stone, a company founder, came up with the initial design for the first in-house bird logo, fine-tuning it by 2009 with the help of Philip Pascuzzo, a designer. A year later, they created yet another version of the logo — its cartoonish features silhouetted away — which was eventually further streamlined by Bowman into its current form.Twitter选择奥克斯利的设计时,他甚至没听说过这家公司。“我好像记得有个朋友给我发邮件说起这家公司,”他说,“我越来越多地看到自己的图标,CNN和B在提到该公司的创业故事时也会提到我的小鸟图标,这让我挺高兴的。”但是因为公司不准使用iStock上的图标作为正式标识,Twitter很快抛下了奥克斯利的小鸟。公司创始人之一比兹·斯通(Biz Stone)想出了内部小鸟标识的最初设计,2009年在设计师菲利普·帕斯库佐(Philip Pascuzzo)的帮助下对它进行了微调。一年后,他们创作了另一个版本——卡通化的剪影——它最后被鲍曼进一步精简成了现在的样子。As for Oxley, though his bird is no longer in wide circulation, he expresses only pleasure at having been a part of tech-start-up history — and he remains a loyal fan of the species. ;I do like birds, very much,; he says. ;I grew up in the English countryside, surrounded by them. Dawn chorus begins each morning at 4 a.m.; Tweet, tweet.至于奥克斯利,虽然他的小鸟不再广泛流传,但他为自己成为一家科技公司创办史的一部分而感到高兴。他仍是那个物种的忠实粉丝。“我真的很喜欢鸟,”他说,“我在英国乡下长大,周围全是鸟。清晨4点就能听到鸟鸣。”啾啾,啾啾。 /201409/326807In the 1939 film classic The Women, much is made of the alluring quality of a specific color of nail polish: “Jungle Red.” It turns out that the characters’ faith in the product was not misplaced.在1939年的经典影片《女人们》中,主角们常常说到一种特殊的指甲油颜色——“丛林红”特别具有诱惑力。科学明,这些电影角色对这种指甲油色号的笃信并非没有根据。New research suggests the color red on a woman does indeed signal sexual availability—not only to men, but also to other women.现在科学研究指出,女性身上红色的装饰确实会向他人发送诱惑的信号——不仅向男性,也会向其他女性发送这种信号。As we have noted previously, studies have found that men tend to view women in red as more sexually attractive. But, ladies, if you were thinking wearing that color would send a subliminal signal only males would pick up on, you’re out of luck.我们已经知道,研究发现,男性往往认为穿红衣的女性更具有吸引力。但是姑娘们,如果你以为穿红衣只会对男性发送微妙的信号,那你就错了。“Our results suggest that women perceive and behave toward other women in red as if these other women are actively advertising” their openness to the possibility of a sexual encounter, writes a research team led by University of Rochester psychologist Adam Pazda.罗彻斯特大学的心理学家亚当·帕扎达所带领的研究团队指出,“我们的研究成果表明,当某些女性穿着红衣的时候,其他女性就会认为她们正在积极地招蜂引蝶,她们对这些红衣女士的态度和交流方式都会有所不同。”Pazda and his colleagues describe a experiment conducted on two different continents that provide evidence that wearing red sets off certain alarm bells. In the first, 196 women recruited online viewed a photo of “a moderately attractive women in her late 20s.”帕扎达的团队在两块不同的大陆上进行了三项实验,这些实验的结果实,穿红衣的女性会发出警示信号。在第一项实验中,科学家们请196名参与实验的女性观看一张“具有现代美的二十八九岁的女性”照片。Half saw an image of her wearing a white dress; the rest viewed an otherwise identical image of her in a red dress. Afterwards, all responded on a sliding scale to a series of statements such as “This person is sexy.”一半的实验参与者看到的照片上姑娘穿着白衣;另一半的实验参与者看到的照片上姑娘穿着红衣。实验结果是,所有的参与者都认为“这个人很性感”,但是性感的程度却有明显的高低之分。As expected, the woman was seen as more sexy if she was wearing red. This held true whether or not the study participants were in a committed relationship.如科学家们所料想的,穿红衣的姑娘被认为更加性感。无论实验参与者是否单身,他们的观点都是这样的。The researchers caution that, needless to say, “not all women displaying red are actively advertising sexual availability.” For those who are not, it’s valuable to understand the ways their wardrobe choices are being interpreted—both by men, and by their female acquaintances.研究者们提醒道,“并不是所有女性在穿红衣的时候都在故意显露性感。”——这一点毋庸置疑。对那些无意穿红色衣的姑娘们,你们有必要知道:你衣着的颜色不仅会向男性、也会向女性同胞们发送某种信息。 /201407/311662

Like many 12-year-old girls, McKenzie Carey loves to dance. And though McKenzie has a rare genetic disease that keeps her in a wheelchair, she has a devoted dance partner in her father, who#39;s waltzed her through many local pageants.和许多12岁女孩一样,麦肯齐·凯利热爱跳舞。尽管麦肯齐因身患罕见的基因疾病而无法离开轮椅,但她忠诚的舞伴——她的父亲还是带她在本地的许多舞蹈比赛上跳起华尔兹。McKenzie has mitochondrial disease, a debilitating condition that deprives the body of energy and damages cells in the heart, liver, skeletal muscles, respiratory systems and brain.麦肯齐患有线粒体疾病,这种疾病会让人丧失大量能量,并损伤心脏、肝脏、骨骼肌、呼吸系统和大脑等部位的细胞,从而使人衰弱。#39;Dancing with daddy makes her feel like she’s on top of the world,#39; her father, Mike Carey, told Today.com.她的父亲麦克·凯利告诉Today.com:“和爸爸一起跳舞让她觉得无比幸福。”#39;Pageants give her the same opportunity as other children and show people that she can accomplish anything with a little bit of help,#39; her mother, Tammy Carey, added. #39;I just want the judges to look at her, not her wheelchair.#39;“舞蹈比赛给了她和其他孩子同样的机会,让她能够在人们面前展示:只要一点点帮助,她就能完成任何事。” 她的母亲塔米·凯利补充道,“我只希望裁判们能看她,而不是她的轮椅。”Ms Carey began entering McKenzie in pageants when she was five but it wasn#39;t until 2010 that her father began joining her onstage.凯利夫人在麦肯齐5岁的时候开始替她报名参加舞蹈比赛。2010年起,麦肯齐的父亲开始和她一起在舞台上跳舞。#39;My wife was sitting in the audience and was so stressed about McKenzie, so I decided to do something a little crazy,#39; Mr Carey told Today.com.凯利先生告诉Today.com:“我太太和观众坐在一起,因为麦肯齐而非常紧张。因此我决定做件有点疯狂的事。”#39;I took McKenzie up on stage and did a wheelie with her wheelchair. Then I spun her around, picked her up and started doing a freestyle dance. The crowd went wild and gave us a standing ovation!#39;“我带着麦肯齐走上舞台,用她的轮椅做了一个抬头特技(类似托车抬起前轮)。接着我旋转她,抱起她,跳起自由式舞蹈。观众们变得疯狂起来,为我们起立鼓掌。”McKenzie has competed in more than 100 pageants, and won about 20. The family is currently preparing for a national pageant in Nebraska.麦肯齐参加了100多场舞蹈比赛,赢了大约20场。凯利一家现在正在准备在内布拉斯加州举行的一场全国比赛。#39;If I get one person [inspired], it made the whole song and whole thing worthwhile,#39; Mr Carey told ANews.com. #39;It’s like an unspoken message. This dance is alike an unspoken testimony and shows bond and love between a father and daughter.#39;“如果我能让一个人感动,那整首歌整件事就是值得的”,凯利先生告诉ANews.com,“这就像无声的讯息。这舞是父女间爱与牵绊的无声宣言。”The Careys have set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for McKenzie#39;s medical treatments, and have aly seen ,000 donated to the cause.凯利一家制做了GoFundMe网页来为麦肯齐的治疗募捐。目前已收到8万6千美元的捐赠。#39;As a mother of a special needs child, there is nothing I won#39;t do to help improve my daughter#39;s quality of life,#39; Ms Carey wrote on the fundraising site.“做为一名有特殊需要的儿童的母亲,为了改善我女儿的生活质量,没有什么是我不能做的,”凯利夫人在募捐网站上写道。#39;She is such an inspiration to everyone she meets.#39;“她感动了每一个见到她的人。” /201407/309302
