Rumors of a successor to Xiaomi#39;s 2016 Mi 5 flagship smartphone have begun to heat up, but the company has cooled off any hype by announcing that it will skip Mobile World Congress this year.虽然关于2016年小米5旗舰版后续型号的传闻越炒越热,但小米公司已经宣布,将不会参加今年的全球移动大会,导致热度骤减。The Mi 6 was expected to launch at the show, just like the Chinese company#39;s Mi 5 did at MWC 2016.外界原本期望小米6在今年的大会上亮相,就如同在2016年的大会上小米公司正式推出了小米5。Still, there#39;s no doubt a successor is on the way — just not as soon as many had hoped. Here#39;s everything we know so far about the Mi 6.毫无疑问,小米将会推出新的手机,只是不像外界预期的那样。以下是我们迄今为止所了解的有关小米6的信息。The Mi 6 with a curved display is expected to be the premium flagship powered by Qualcomm#39;s Snapdragon 835 processor, but recent reports from GizmoChina indicate that the processor may be underclocked, meaning it just won#39;t be as fast as it could be.小米6预计将配备曲面显示屏和高通公司的骁龙835处理器,然而近期GizmoChina的报告显示,处理器可能进行降频处理,这意味着其运行速度达不到应有水平。Why is this happening? Well, it#39;s complicated. Samsung co-developed the Snapdragon 835 processor with Qualcomm, and as such gets first pick of the fully clocked supply. Instead of waiting for supply to pick up a little, some manufacturers may instead opt to go for underclocked chips that Samsung may not want to use.为何会出现上述情况?其成因非常复杂。三星公司和高通共同开发骁龙835处理器,并成为了第一家使用全频处理器的厂商。一些不愿等待的制造商转而选择降频版作为替代品,而这些降频处理器却是三星公司所不愿使用的。This wouldn#39;t be uncharacteristic for Xiaomi, which launched the Mi 5 with an underclocked Snapdragon 820 in an effort to get the handset out sooner.这种情况已有先例,此前小米公司为了更快推出小米5就曾使用降频版的骁龙820处理器。The flat Mi 6 is also expected to feature the same underclocked processor, but at a lower price, and the third Mi 6 variant will be flat but will house a MediaTek Helio X30 processor. The latter will be the cheapest option, if reports are accurate.普通版的小米6将配备同样的降频处理器,只是价格更低。小米6的第三个版本同样是普通版,不过处理器则是MediaTek Helio X30。如果报告无误,后者的售价将是最低的。The flagship Mi 6 will likely have 6GB of RAM, while the other models may be stuck with 4GB. The flagship may cost around 3 for 6GB of RAM.小米6旗舰版预计配备6GB大小的随机存储器,其他型号则仍为4GB。拥有6GB大小随机存储器的小米6的售价可能达到363美元。Information about the specs of the Mi 6 is sparse and often from little-known sources. There are conflicting reports that suggest a 3,000mAh battery, for example, while others say to expect a 4,000mAh capacity.关于小米6性能参数的传闻来源较少且消息源知名度较低。一些报告甚至自相矛盾,比如某些传闻称小米6的电池容量为3000毫安,其他传闻中则是4000毫安。If there are three models with various specs, it would certainly make sense as to why the information varies. All such information should be viewed with some skepticism until official announcements are made.如果小米6推出三个版本,每种型号的手机性能各异,传闻出现矛盾之处也是合理的。在官方声明发布前,传闻的真实性仍存在疑问。Other specs that have been suggested are support for Qualcomm#39;s Quick Charge 4.0, as well as a fingerprint sensor on the front of the device.其他性能参数传闻还包括持高通的快充4.0以及手机前部的指纹传感器等。As mentioned, Xiaomi is skipping Mobile World Congress, which means the Mi 6 won#39;t be revealed until a later date.前文中提到,小米6将缺席全球移动大会,所以这意味着小米6将会在大会结束后发布。 /201702/492460

A new report from market intelligence firm IDC shows Apple Watch sales have dropped 55% since the product was launched in early 2015.根据市场调研机构IDC发布的一份最新报告显示,自苹果手表于2015年初上市以来,销量已经大幅下滑了55%。The watch debuted to a backlog of orders and 3.6 million units were shipped in its first three months on the market. But sales plummeted to just 1.6 million in the latest quarter, according to IDC. That#39;s in spite of a price discount.在上市的前三个月,苹果手表销量就达到了360万只。然而,今年第二季度的销量却直线下降,仅为160万只--尽管价格已经打了折扣。Apple it set to deliver an updated operating system for its smartwatch this fall -- called watch OS 3 -- which promises new features and improved performance.今年秋季,苹果智能手表将会更新为一个叫做watch OS 3的操作系统,据称将有新的特点并改善了性能。;Consumers have held off on smartwatch purchases since early 2016 in anticipation of a hardware refresh,; explained Jitesh Ubrani, a senior research analyst at IDC.IDC高级分析师吉特什·尤不拉尼表示:“出于对新的Watch OS系统的期待,在2016年前半段,消费者对购买智能手表持观望态度。”Meanwhile, other manufacturers are now seeing better numbers. Samsung (SSNLF), Lenovo (LNVGY) and LG Electronics grabbed larger shares of the market in the latest quarter, though their growth comes from a low base.同时,尽管如三星、联想和LG等其他品牌之前的基数较低,但上个季度的出货份额却都有了大幅的上升。Ramon Llamas, IDC#39;s research manager for wearables, forecasts the smartwatch market will return to growth next year as firms introduce new applications and cellphone-connected features.IDC可穿戴设备研究主管拉蒙·拉马斯表示,随着新的应用以及手机连接性能的发布,智能手表的需求将在下一年回暖。Apple was relatively slow to introduce a smartwatch as other firms piled into the sector. But the Apple Watch grabbed a lion#39;s share of the market immediately after its launch.相比其他公司大量涌入智能手表行业,苹果公司引入智能手表的步伐相对较慢。然而,在发布智能手表产品后,该公司仍快速成为这个市场的超级霸主。Apple does not break out separate sales figures for its Apple Watch and did not respond to requests for comment on the IDC report.不过,苹果公司方面并未发布Apple Watch的销售数据,也未对IDC的报告作出回应。 /201607/457444


  Inventors have created an electronic bike which is not only as light as as two newborn babies but folds up and fits in a backpack.发明者发明的这款电子自行车不仅只有两个新生婴儿那么重,而且可折叠并放在背包里。The Smacircle can reach speeds of 12.5mph (20km/h) and is controlled with a smartphone app.这款叫做Smacircle的自行车时速可达20公里,可用手机APP进行控制。The eBike folds up into a backpack in less than ten seconds, by which time it#39;s no taller than 19 inches (49cm).在十秒内就可以折叠成背包,折叠后高度不超过49厘米。The bike weighs a little over 15lbs (7kg) and can accommodate riders of various sizes.车重7公斤多一点,可适应不同体重的乘客。The first models have been made and tested, and its makers are seeking further investment with an upcoming Indiegogo campaign to bring it to the mainstream market.首批模型已经被制造和测试,其制造者将在众筹平台Indiegogo上寻求投资以将这款车推向主流市场。Chinese designers believe it might change the way people commute to work.中国设计者相信这款车将改变人们的通勤方式。CEO Gavin Yang, from Shenzhen in China, said: #39;Smacircle is a unique innovative design created to fill in the gap in short commute personal transportation.来自中国深圳的CEO Gavin Yang说:“#39;Smacircle以独特的创新设计来填补个人短途通勤领域的空白。”#39;Our team has spent countless hours on research and development, and are committed to bring the people the best possible solution for short commutes#39;, he said.“我们团队在研发上花了无数个小时,决心要给短途通勤带来最好的解决方案。”As it has not yet hit the market, there is no price available.由于还没推向市场,所以价格不明。#39;We have spent almost two years developing this Smacircle eBike and now we have made the concept a reality#39;, said Mr Yang.“我们花了将近两年时间来研发这款车,终于实现了这个概念,”王先生说。 /201705/508445。

  Businesses must brace for further cyber attacks this week on a potentially “significant scale”, British intelligence officials warned yesterday, less than 48 hours after the debilitating WannaCry software virus swept across the world.毒性较大的“想哭”(WannaCry)软件病毒肆虐世界各地不到48小时之后,英国情报官员昨日警告,企业本周必须准备好对付进一步的网络攻击。Data show more than 1.3m computer systems are still vulnerable to infection by WannaCry, which paralysed hospitals, disrupted transport networks and immobilised businesses, according to cyber security analysts.据网络安全分析人士介绍,数据显示,超过130万电脑系统仍然容易被“想哭”感染,这种勒索软件已经致使医院瘫痪、扰乱了运输网络,还使企业无法运转。So far, 200,000 computers across 150 countries are known to have been infected in the first wave of the cyber attack, Europol said yesterday. “The recent attack is at an unprecedented level and will require a complex international investigation to identify the culprits,” Europe’s police agency added.欧洲刑警组织(Europol)昨日表示,迄今已有150个国家的20万台电脑在第一波网络攻击中受到感染。“最近这起袭击达到前所未有的水平,将需要展开一场复杂的国际调查来找出幕后黑手,”该组织补充称。Intelligence agencies in Europe and the US spent the weekend warning companies and organisations that the threat from the ransomware — malicious software that encrypts machines’ hard drives and demands payment to release the data — may escalate.周末期间,欧洲和美国的情报机构忙着警告企业和组织,来自勒索软件(对电脑硬盘进行加密,然后要求交钱以换取释放数据的恶意软件)的威胁可能会升级。(上图为“想哭”软件病毒的勒索信息。——编者注)“We are aware of attempts to attack other UK centres beyond the health service,” Ciaran Martin, director of the National Cyber Security Centre, an arm of the electronic intelligence agency GCHQ, told the Financial Times.“据我们掌握,有一些针对医疗部门以外的英国其他中心的攻击企图,”隶属英国电子情报机构——政府通信总部(GCHQ)的国家网络安全中心(National Cyber Security Centre)主任夏兰?马丁(Ciaran Martin)告诉英国《金融时报》。He said although the agency had warned British organisations there were likely to be further attacks today, there was no evidence WannaCry had been updated by its creators to address the element in its coding that halted its sp late on Friday. Officials still believe WannaCry is the creation of a criminal group.他说,尽管该机构已警告英国境内的组织:今日可能会发生进一步攻击,但尚未有据明,“想哭”的作者已更新其代码,以解决导致其在上周五停止传播的编码问题。官员们仍然相信,“想哭”是一个犯罪集团的产物。“With the National Crime Agency we have an around-the-clock effort to work out who is responsible,” Mr Martin said. “We have a number of leads but we can’t comment on them.”“我们正与国家打击犯罪局(National Crime Agency)合作,全天候追查罪魁祸首,”马丁表示。“我们有一些线索,但现在不能置评。”Anthony Ferrante, a former director for Cyber Incident Response at the US National Security Council, said: “We could see activity on Monday morning when people show up for work.”美国国家安全委员会(National Security Council)网络事件响应(Cyber Incident Response)前主任安东尼?费兰特(Anthony Ferrante)表示:“周一上午,当人们上班后,我们可能会看到一些活动。”Mr Ferrante, now managing director at FTI Consulting’s forensics and litigation unit, said the US government was taking the threat “extremely seriously”.如今担任富事高咨询(FTI Consulting)司法鉴定和诉讼部门董事总经理的费兰特表示,美国政府“非常重视”这一威胁。The list of organisations hit by WannaCry has lengthened in the past 48 hours: alongside Britain’s National Health Service, which saw more than a third of hospitals and clinics incapacitated, victims include German rail operator Deutsche Bahn, US logistics group FedEx, Russia’s interior ministry, French carmaker Renault, Spanish telecoms group Telefónica and state-owned China National Petroleum Corp.“想哭”袭击的组织名单在过去48小时变得更长:除了英国国家医疗务体系(NHS)三分之一以上的医院和诊所陷于瘫痪,受害者还包括德国铁路(Deutsche Bahn)、美国物流集团联邦快递(FedEx)、俄罗斯内务部、法国汽车制造商雷诺(Renault)、西班牙电信(Telefónica)以及国有的中国石油天然气集团公司(CNPC)。Despite urgent appeals from security authorities for organisations to address the critical Windows security vulnerability exploited by WannaCry, many still have not done so. “We must change our approach,” said Julian King, EU security commissioner. “We all need to take responsibility for cyber security.”尽管安全部门紧急呼吁各组织堵上“想哭”利用的Windows严重安全漏洞,但仍有许多组织没有这样做。“我们必须改变我们的做法,”欧盟安全专员朱利安?金(Julian King)表示,“我们都需要对网络安全负责。” /201705/509185

  The most accurate predictor of earning power is literacy. According to a number of international studies, it is a better indicator than years of education.Literacy does not just mean being able to , but also refers to how well you cope with the written language. This is greatly affected by the number of words you heard or as a child, or have learned since. For this reason, immigrants often have low literacy levels in the language of their new country. Improving literacy is something you can work on at any time, on your own, without going to school or taking special programs.Nearly all publications thus reduce the complexity of written communications, as measured by various ability indicators. This is undoubtedly a sensible idea for communicating with and appealing to the majority of people. However, if you as an individual want to improve your word power, you should head in the opposite direction. Time Magazine and Newsweek are only written at a Grade 10 level and most popular novels are at a Grade 7 to 10 level. If everything you is at a grade 10 level or less, your literacy level will stagnate. Try to more challenging material to increase your literacy fitness and earning power.Give yourself a literacy workout, regularly. Soon, you will see a difference in the way you use words and in the way people react to your input. Here's how:Find articles on the Internet: Look for articles that are interesting but a little difficult or complex to digest. There is almost no limit to the variety of content available on the web, at all levels of difficulty. BNET and Gutenberg are just some examples of great sources of articles and e-books.Push yourself beyond your comfort level. You may do most of your ing away from the computer, but the Internet is a great place to hone your skills. On the Internet you can identify the difficulty level of different types of ing, as I will explain. In addition you can access online dictionaries and other language resources which can help you.Know the complexity of your ing material: Find out where your comfort level is. Copy a sample page from a source or article that interests you and paste it into Google Documents. There you can go to File/Word Count and you will see several ability indicators. I use the Automated Reader Index which indicates the number of years of schooling required to understand a text.Now try to content that is a level or two higher, whatever that level is. Keep challenging yourself with harder and harder material until you are comfortable with content that is at an index of 12 or 15 or higher. Once you have an idea of the complexity of different types of ing you can target this kind of content for your off line ing too.Measure the richness of the vocabulary: While you have selected text still on your clipboard, go to Tom Cobb's Vocabulary Profiler. There you can see how many words are within the first 1000 most frequent words, how many are "academic" (AWL), and how many are Off-List words. Try to get to the point where you are comfortable ing material that has around 10% or more words in both the AWL and the Off-List categories. Don't hesitate to use online dictionaries and other word learning systems for increasing your vocabulary, if you need to.Listen and : If you want to train your brain to become comfortable with complex language content, seek out sites which offer audio with transcripts for free download. Voice of America, and Interesting Things of the Day are but two examples of such sites. To improve your ability to complex content, listen to the same content as you are ing. This is an effective way to learn languages, and works wonderfully for improving your ing skills, whatever your level.Writing that seemed unnecessarily complicated or confusing will gradually seem clear. If you are up to it, try something like James Joyce's Ulysses. I could never Proust, but I now enjoy him through audio books.Try an example. Listen to and this article on Biometrics. It has the following profile:Readability Index: 15 years of educationFirst 1000 frequency words: 70 %Academic Word List words: 8 %Off-List words: 13 %You can train yourself to get used to language that at first seems difficult to understand. As your language skills improve, you will find that your writing and oral expression will also improve. You will not need to take those remedial writing, or "higher level thinking" courses which are offered in college to students with poor literacy skills. And your earning potential will increase, for life. /200804/34781

  Smog in Europe and North America could be more than 25 times more lethal than the average air pollution found in Chinese cities, a new study suggests.一项最新研究发现,欧洲和北美的雾霾致命性可能比中国城市平均空气污染水平高出25倍以上。In the largest ever study of its kind in the developing world, researchers tested the effects of air pollution on the health of people in 272 cities in China.在这项有史以来针对发展中国家进行的最大规模的同类研究中,研究人员测试了中国272个城市里空气污染对人体健康的影响。They found average annual exposure to fine particles, known as PM2.5, in those cities was more than five times higher than the level recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO), according to a paper in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.研究人员发现,在这些城市中,人们的年均PM2.5接触量是世界卫生组织建议水平的5倍多。研究论文发表在《美国呼吸系统和重症护理医学杂志》上。However they also discovered that it was much less likely to increase the death rate than PM2.5 in Europe and North America.但研究人员也发现,与欧洲和北美的PM2.5相比,中国的PM2.5致命性要低得多。The researchers, led by Dr Maigeng Zhou, of the Chinese Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, suggested this was because China is affected by large amounts of natural dust blown by the wind from arid areas, while most pollution in the West comes from industry.中国疾病预防控制中心周脉耕士领导的这个研究团队提出,这是因为中国的空气污染源于从干旱地区吹来的大量天然尘土,而西方的污染主要来自工业。They found that for every increase of 10 micrograms of air pollution in a cubic metre of air, the mortality rate increased by 0.22 percent, discounting deaths from accidents.他们发现,如果不考虑意外事故造成的死亡,中国每立方米空气里的污染物每增加10微克,死亡率就增加0.22%。Professor Frank Kelly, an expert in environmental health at King’s College London, who was not involved in the study but has studied air pollution in China, told The Independent: “Those relative risks are considerably less than those seen in Europe and the US.英国伦敦大学国王学院环境健康专家弗兰克-凯利教授告诉《独立报》记者:“这些相对的风险明显比欧洲和美国小得多。”凯利没有参与此项研究,但研究了中国的空气污染。“For premature mortality [in Europe] we are working on a six percent increase per 10 micrograms.”凯利说:“就(欧洲的)过早死亡率来看,每立方米空气污染物每增加10微克,死亡率将增加6%。”That suggests air pollution in Europe is about 27 times more toxic than average air pollution in China.这表明,欧洲空气污染的毒性约为中国的27倍。However Professor Kelly said cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong were likely to suffer from Western-style air pollution.但是,凯利教授说,北京、上海和香港这样的城市可能也存在“西式”空气污染。;The natural dust component there is not of the magnitude that it would dwarf the coal, biomass and fossil fuel signals,” he said.“那儿空气中天然尘土的数量还不足以使煤炭、生物物质和化石燃料等因素相形见绌。”“That [the lower mortality rate] may be true in certain cities whose pollution is not dominated by local power generation or major traffic congestion.”他说:“在污染物主要不是来自当地电厂或严重交通拥堵的某些城市,(死亡率较低)可能是事实。”Natural dust particles can cause physical damage to the lungs and trigger an asthma attack. Particles of carbon produced when fossil fuels are burned can lead to similar problems but they are also coated with toxic heavy metals, chemicals and volatile organic compounds.天然粉尘可能使肺部受损,引发哮喘。燃烧化石燃料时产生的碳微粒可能导致类似问题,但它们外表还包裹着有毒的重金属、化学物质和挥发性有机物。These are able to pass from the lungs into the blood stream where it is thought they cause further damage to the body.这些物质可能从肺部进入血液,据称这会给身体造成进一步损害。Areeba Hamid, an air pollution campaigner with environmental group Greenpeace, said: “Toxic air causes havoc to people’s health wherever in the world they live.环境团体绿色和平组织的反空气污染活动家阿丽芭-哈米德说:“有毒空气给世界各地人们的健康造成严重损害。”“We now know fumes from diesel vehicles are a lot more toxic than car companies claimed and this is a big cause of air pollution in Europe and North America.“我们如今知道,柴油车排放的废气毒性比汽车公司宣称的要大得多,而这是欧洲和北美空气污染的一大原因。”“These companies have a lot to answer for, but so far they’ve managed to avoid any real accountability.”“这些公司要承担很大责任,但到目前为止它们都避免承担任何真正的责任。”The study of cities in China found the average annual expose to PM2.5 was 56 micrograms per cubic metre, compared to the WHO guideline limit for safe air quality of 10 micrograms.对中国城市的这项研究发现,PM2.5的年均接触量为每立方米56微克,而世界卫生组织的空气质量安全标准为每立方米10微克。People who were older than 75, had less education or who lived in hotter places were more likely to die.75岁以上、教育水平较低或生活在较热地区的人死亡风险更高。It is thought people in warmer cities were more likely to spend time outside or leave their windows open, thereby breathing more polluted air, the researchers said.研究人员说,在较热城市生活的人到户外去或开窗的时间可能更长,因此会吸入更多的污染空气。They also speculated that less well educated people might have poorer access to health care or experience poorer environmental health conditions.他们还推测说,教育水平较低的人享受医疗务的机会较少,他们接触的环境卫生状况也较差。 /201702/492437


  “Everything has been figured out, except how to live.” - Jean-Paul SartreI’m nearly 35 years old, and I’ve made my share of mistakes in my life. I’m not a big believer in regrets … and I have learned tremendously from every single mistake … and my life is pretty great.However, there are a few things I wish I had known when I was graduating from high school and starting out as an adult in life.Would I change things? I’m not so sure. I might never have gotten into a mountain of debt, but then I wouldn’t have learned the amazing satisfaction of getting out of it. I might have made better career choices, but then I wouldn’t have all the work experience that makes me the blogger and writer that I am today.I might not have gotten married that first time, so that I would never have gotten divorced … but then I wouldn’t have my first two beautiful wonderful incredible children from that first marriage.I don’t think I would change any of that. However, looking back, there are some lessons I’ve learned that I would probably tell my 18-year-old self. Do I share them now to share my regrets? No, I share them in hopes that younger men and women, just starting out in life, can benefit from my mistakes and my lessons.What follows isn’t an exhaustive list, but it’s one that I hope proves useful to at least a few people.“I hope life isn’t a big joke, because I don’t get it.” - Jack HandeyHow to control impulse spending. If there’s anything that got me in trouble financially, it’s impulse spending. Buying clothes when I don’t need them. Buying gadgets because I gotta have them. Ordering stuff online because it’s so easy. Buying that new shiny SUV because … well, because it was going to help me with women. I’m not proud of any of that. I’ve learned to control my impulses, at least a little better. Now, I give myself some time to breathe. I think over my purchases, see if I’ve got the money, think about whether it’s a need or a want. That would have been a useful tool 15 years ago.You gotta stay active. I was in track, cross country and basketball in high school, but once I started college, the running and basketball began to slowly fade away. Not right away — I played pick-up basketball for years after high school. But even that went away, until I became sedentary. Playing with my kids outdoors winded me. And I began to get fat. I’ve reversed that trend, and am very active now, but I’m still trying to burn the fat I gained in those inactive years.How to plan finances. I always knew that I was supposed to budget and track my spending, when I became an adult. I just was too lazy to do it. And I didn’t have a good idea of how to actually do it. Now, I’ve learned how to plan, and how to stick to that plan. Sure, I deviate from my plan, but I’ve learned how to handle that too. Maybe that’s not a skill you can learn from book ing. You just gotta practice. Well, I hope to teach it to my children before they go out on their own.Junk food will come back to bite you in the butt. Yeah, it wasn’t just the sedentary lifestyle that got me fat. It was all the damn junk food too. I would eat pizza and burgers and Twinkies and sugar cereal and desserts and donuts and … well, you get the picture. As someone used to being able to eat whatever I wanted, it never seemed like it would be a problem. Bad health was something to worry about when you got old. Well, my jeans began to get way too tight, and to my horror, I climbed several pants sizes and developed a gut that only now is going away. I wish someone had shown me an “after” picture when I was young and downing the Big Gulp sodas.Smoking is just dumb. I didn’t start smoking until I was well into my adult years. I won’t go into why I started, but it didn’t seem like a problem, because I knew I could quit anytime I wanted. Or I thought I could, at least, until several years later I gave it a go and couldn’t do it. Five failed quits later and I realized with horror that my addiction was stronger than I was. Sure, I eventually beat the habit (quit date: Nov. 18, 2005) but it took a piece of my soul to do it.Fund your retirement, son. And don’t withdraw it. This piece of wisdom, and probably all the ones above, might seem blisteringly obvious. And they are. Don’t think I didn’t know this when I was 18. I did. I just didn’t pay it serious attention. Retirement was something I could worry about when I was in my 30s. Well, I’m in my 30s now and I wish I could slap that little 18-year-old Leo around a bit. What money I could have invested by now! I had a retirement plan, but on the 3 occasions when I changed jobs, I withdrew that and spent it frivolously.All the stuff you’re doing that seems hard — it will be of use. This is the first one that might not be as obvious. There were times in my life when work was hard, and I did it anyway, but hated it. I did it because I had to, but boy did it stress me out and leave me exhausted. Hard work isn’t as easy as I wanted it to be. But you know what? Every bit of hard work I did without knowing why I was doing it … it’s paid off for me in the long run. Maybe not right away, but I’m using skills and habits I learned during those times of high stress and long hours and tedious work — I use them all the time, and they’ve made me into the person I am today. Thank you, younger Leo!Don’t buy that used van without checking it out closely. I thought I was being smart by buying used, but I didn’t check it out carefully enough. That dang van had loads of engine problems, a door that nearly fell off when I was driving, a door handle that snapped off, a side mirror that fell off, no spare tire despite three tires that were y to blow (and did), windows that didn’t roll up, rattling noises, an eventual blown radiator … I could go on and on, but let’s just say that it wasn’t my best purchase. I still think buying used is smart, but check things out closely first.That guy you’re going to sell your car to? On a gentleman’s agreement? He’s not gonna pay you. I sold another car to a friend of a friend, who I was sure would pay me even if I had nothing in writing. That was smart. I still see the guy once in awhile on the road, but I don’t have the energy to do a U-turn and chase after him.Make time to pursue your passion, no matter how busy you are. I’ve always wanted to be a writer, and get a book published. I just never had time to write. With a family and school and a full-time job, there just weren’t enough hours in the day. Well, I’ve learned that you have to make those hours. Set aside a block of time to do what you love, cut out other stuff from your life that take up your time, and don’t let anything interfere with that work. If I had done that 15 years ago, I could have 15 books written by now. Not all would be great, but still.All that stuff that’s stressing you out — it won’t matter in 5 years, let alone 15. When things are happening to you right now, they mean all the world. I had deadlines and projects and people breathing down my neck, and my stress levels went through the roof. I don’t regret the hard work (see above) but I think I would have been less stressed if I could have just realized that it wouldn’t matter a single bit just a few years down the road. Perspective is a good thing to learn.The people you make friends with are so much more important than your job or the things you buy. I’ve had a few jobs, I’ve bought a lot of things, and I’ve made a few friends over these last 15 years. Of those, the only thing that still matter to me are the friends. And I wish I could have spent more time with friends (and family) than on the other things.All that time you spend watching TV is a huge, huge waste of time. I don’t know how much TV I’ve watched over the years, but it’s a crapload. Hours and days and weeks I’ll never have back. Who cares what happens on reality TV, when reality is slipping by outside? Time is something you’ll never get back — don’t waste it on TV.Your kids are going to grow up way faster than you think. Don’t waste a minute. I just had an Oh My God moment recently. My oldest daughter, Chloe, is 14 going on 15 next month. I have 3 years left with her before she leaves my house and becomes an adult. Three years! I am floored by that single fact, because it really doesn’t seem anywhere near enough time. I want to go back to my younger self and whack that younger Leo on the head and say Stop working so hard! Stop watching TV! Spend more time with your kids! These last 15 years with Chloe (and my other wonderful kids) have gone by much, much too fast.Forget the drama. Focus on being happy. There have been many things that have happened to me, professionally and personally, that seem like the end of the world. And while these things were bad, they get blown up in our heads so that they become major drama. They caused me to be depressed from time to time. What a waste of time. If I realized that it was all in my head, and that I could be happy instead if I focused on the positive, on what I did have, and what I could be doing … I could have skipped all the moping about.Pay more attention to blogs when you first hear about them. They’re more than just journals. I first about blogs 7-8 years ago, but when I took a look at them they didn’t seem like anything of interest. Just some people’s journals about stuff they on the web. Why would I want to those? I have my own thoughts about the web, but I don’t need to share them with the world. I spent a lot of time on the Internet, on various sites and forums, but every time I happened upon a blog I would brush past it without interest. It wasn’t until a couple years ago that I discovered what wonderful things they could be (I mentioned some of my early favorites in my list of influences). If I had gotten into blogging years ago … well, I wouldn’t have been wasting all that time.Speaking of which, keep a journal. Seriously. Your memory is extremely faulty. I forget things really easily. Not short-term stuff, but long-term. I don’t remember things about my kids’ early years, because I didn’t record any of it. I don’t remember things about my life. It’s like a lot of foggy memories that I’ll never have access to. I wish I had kept a journal.Tequila is seriously evil. I won’t go into details, but it should suffice to say that I had some bad experiences, and I’m not sure I learned very much from them or benefited in any way except to learn that tequila is the drink of the Devil.Yes, you can do a marathon. Don’t put this goal off — it’s extremely rewarding. Running a marathon had always been a dream of mine, since high school … something I wanted to do but thought was out of reach. Or if I ever did it, it would be years and years later. Well, I learned that it’s not only achievable, it’s incredibly rewarding. I wish I had started training when I was young and light and fit … I could have had some good finishing times!All these mistakes you’re going to make, despite this advice? They’re worth it. My 18-year-old self would probably have this post and said, “Good advice!” And then he would have proceeded to make the same mistakes, despite good intentions. I was a good kid, but I wasn’t good at following advice. I had to make my own mistakes, and live my own life. And that’s what I did, and I don’t regret a minute of it. Every experience I’ve had (even the tequila ones) have led me down the path of life to where I am today. I love where I am today, and wouldn’t trade it for another life for all the world. The pain, the stress, the drama, the hard work, the mistakes, the depression, the hangovers, the debt, the fat … it was all worth it.“Let us so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.” - Mark Twain /200804/34785。

  Hallowe'en is a popular festival in many countries all over the world, and every year it seems to get bigger. It's getting dark earlier and it's starting to get cold. Christmas is still a long way away. We need something to cheer us up and take our minds of the fact that winter is nearly here. See how much you know about the traditional festival of Hallowe'en. The origins of the nameThe festival of Hallowe'en has its roots in Celtic and Roman traditions. Over 2,000 years ago the Celts in Britain, Ireland and parts of France celebrated Samhain to mark the beginning of winter. When the Romans invaded, they merged this with Feralia, their celebration of the passing of the dead. As Christianity sp, the Church tried to replace these pagan feasts with official Church holy days. One of these was November 1. It was called "All Hallows", and October 31 was known as "All Hallows' Eve", and then Hallowe'en. Hallowe'en traditionsIn the past there was a tradition called "souling". Poor people went around houses asking for food. In exchange, they promised to say prayers for the dead. People no longer go souling, but the habit has been transformed into a modern Hallowe'en game for children in America, who dress up as ghosts, witches and monsters and go around people's houses. WitchesHallowe'en wouldn't be fun without witches. Witches have always been part of popular folklore. Shakespeare's play "Macbeth" opens with three witches. A witch was someone - usually a woman - who had special powers and had dealings with the devil. The American town, Salem, is famous for the "witchcraft trials", which took place there in 1692. PumpkinsThe pumpkin has become a symbol of Hallowe'en. People empty a pumpkin, cut a face into the side, and put a candle inside to make a lamp. It's known as a Jack O' Lantern, from a story about a man called Jack, who made a deal with the devil. AnimalsBlack cats, frogs, mice and spiders are just some of the animals associated with Hallowe'en. Generally, the more unpleasant the animal, the stronger the Hallowe'en connection. Nocturnal animals like bats are particular favourites, and if, as is the case with vampire bats, they like drinking blood, they are high on the Hallowe'en list. - /200804/36480

  Few consumers had even heard of Huawei in 2011, the year in which its board decided to focus on breaking into the smartphone market in a big way.2011年那会儿,还没有多少消费者听说过华为(Huawei),就在这一年,华为董事会决定集中精力,大举进军智能手机市场。The company’s portfolio of cheap, low-tech devices had led many to mark the group down as just another “me-too” Chinese white-label manufacturer. But six years on, Huawei has achieved its ambition. As well as now being one of the world’s leading suppliers of telecoms equipment, ranking alongside Sweden’s Ericsson, it has also become the third-biggest vendor of smartphones by market share, according to research company Gartner.华为推出了一系列低价、低技术含量的手机产品,让许多人以为该集团不过是又一家跟风的中国“白标”制造商。但6年过去,华为实现了自己的雄心壮志。根据研究公司Gartner的数据,华为现在不仅是全球领先的电信设备供应商,与瑞典爱立信(Ericsson)齐名,还成为按市场份额计全球第三大的智能手机供应商。The Chinese company has aspirations to be number one as it moves to make more expensive devices aimed at western markets. In 2011, it shipped 1m handsets. Last year, this figure rose to more than 139m.这家中国企业渴望成为第一,它已在针对西方市场制造价位更高的设备。2011年华为手机发货量为100万部,去年这一数字超过了1.39亿。“Smartphones are becoming some kind of commodity [at the middle and lower end] but technology is evolving,” says Richard Yu, chief executive of Huawei’s consumer business since 2011.华为消费者业务首席执行官余承东(Richard Yu)表示:“智能手机正成为某类商品(就中低档来说),但技术还在发展。”他自2011年起开始担任这一职务。The P9, launched last year, was Huawei’s first premium handset to break the sales mark of 10m units. The smartphone, which includes an advanced camera developed in partnership with Leica, was launched with the price of £480 for the most basic model.去年推出的P9是华为首款突破1000万部销量的高端手机。这款智能手机配备了与徕卡(Leica)合作开发的高级摄像头,发售时基本款定价为480英镑。However, Mr Yu says that smartphone sales are not the limit of Huawei’s ambitions, as the company looks to move into artificial intelligence and the realm of everyday connected devices, known as the internet of things.但余承东表示,华为所追求的并不限于卖智能手机,该公司还希望进军人工智能和日常连接设备——即物联网——领域。While smartphones will stay a core part of the business, Huawei is investing more in services that the phones can deliver as a means to drive future sales.华为仍将把智能手机作为一块核心业务,但目前已在加大投资研发能够在手机上提供的务,以此作为推动未来销售增长的手段。The goal is to create new uses for smartphones, for instance by building applications around virtual and augmented reality — either with the addition of goggles that immerse the user in a virtual world, or by imposing virtual dressing on real-world views.其目标是开创智能手机的新用途,例如开发虚拟现实、增强现实应用——或是通过眼镜使用户沉浸在虚拟世界,或是将虚拟装覆盖在真实世界影像上。Mr Yu says Huawei is investing in VR, which he predicts will become integrated within smartphones.余承东说华为正在投资虚拟现实,他预测该技术将被整合到智能手机上。Even more important, he says, will be artificial intelligence linked to smartphones.他说,更重要的是将人工智能与智能手机联系起来。Huawei has plans to rival the big western technology groups such as Apple and Amazon in creating voice-controlled search and response assistants. Mr Yu says that Huawei is investing “huge money” in research and development in this field. Future virtual assistants will adapt themselves to a user’s preferences, their actions and reactions based on data received from smartphones that are packed full of sensors.华为已有开发语音控制搜索及应答助理的计划,希望与苹果(Apple)、亚马逊(Amazon)等西方科技巨头一较高下。余承东表示华为在该领域的研发上投入了“巨资”。未来的虚拟助理将能够调整自身去适应用户的偏好,它们的动作和反应基于装有传感器的智能手机所接收的数据。Customers will no longer touch a screen to access services, they will just talk to their device. “There will be a smart and natural interaction with human beings,” Mr Yu says. “Huawei is working more and more on AI and VR. The smartphone becomes my personal assistant.届时用户将不再需要以触屏方式来使用各项务,他们只需与自己的设备交谈。余承东说:“设备与人之间将进行聪明、自然的互动。华为越来越多地致力于人工智能和虚拟现实。智能手机已经成了我的个人助理。”“Behind the smartphone are big data and AI processing,” he adds. “The phone in the future is like a robot.”他说:“智能手机的背后是大数据和人工智能处理。未来的手机就像一个机器人。”One reason for this strategic shift is that its phone sales are being challenged by low-cost rivals in Shenzhen, where Huawei has its headquarters. Some analysts also warn that the smartphone market is becoming saturated.这一战略性转变的原因之一是,华为在手机销售方面日益受到深圳低成本竞争对手的挑战,深圳是华为总部所在地。一些分析师还警告说智能手机市场正日趋饱和。For now, however, Huawei is the top-selling smartphone maker in China, according to research company Counterpoint. Overseas shipments account for nearly 50 per cent of its total handset sales.不过根据研究公司Counterpoint的数据,目前华为是中国销量第一的智能手机制造商,海外发货量占其手机总销量的近一半。Mr Yu adds that there are still ways to boost sales by improving the design of smartphones, not least by upgrading their digital cameras further.余承东表示,还是有办法来扩大手机销售,比如通过改进智能手机的设计,尤其是进一步升级手机的数码摄像头。He says that work is also being done to improve battery life, a frequent demand of device users across many brands.他表示华为也在致力于延长电池寿命,这是许多品牌设备用户的常见要求。Huawei has experimented with wearables. Its Huawei Watch 2, which uses the Android operating system, has online connectivity and acts as a fitness monitor, was launched at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week.华为已试水可穿戴设备领域,华为Watch 2搭载安卓(Android)操作系统,可以连网,还能当做健身监测器,该设备于本周在巴塞罗马世界移动通信大会(Mobile World Congress)上发布。The company still faces some hurdles on its way to the top sales spot, however. Its name is still not as well known as those at the pricier end of the market. Mr Yu also says the company needs more time to build penetration in the US, where it is “behind” compared to other parts of the world.不过,在迈向全球销售榜首的道路上,华为依然面临一些障碍。它仍不如市场上那些高端品牌知名。余承东还表示华为需要更多时间扩大在美国的渗透,与全球其他地区的情况相比,华为在该市场“落在后面”。 /201703/495288

  There are museums devoted to pretty much everything: bad art, instant ramen, hair. Now there is a museum in southern England devoted to excrement.世界上什么样的物馆都有,有收藏烂艺术、方便面、还有毛发的。如今,英格兰南部又有了一间致力于收集粪便的物馆。The National Poo Museum, which opened in March at the Isle of Wight Zoo in Sandown, was created by a small group of artists from a collective called Eccleston George. The group, which usually makes interactive exhibits for schools and zoos, was looking for a new project that could generate a trickle of income for its artists. The idea for the museum originated when a member, Daniel Roberts, was walking on a country path in Sweden and happened upon some mysterious animal droppings.“国家便便物馆”(National Poo Museum)今年三月在英国桑当的怀特岛动物园(Isle of Wright Zoo)开幕,由名叫埃克莱斯顿#8231;乔治(Eccleston George)的艺术家团体中的几个成员所创立。该团体经常为学校与动物园制作互动式展览,而创馆初衷是为了找个能给成员带来一点收入的新项目。这是他们的成员丹尼尔#8231;罗伯茨(Daniel Roberts)的主意,起因于他曾在瑞典的乡间小路上散步时,看到的一些神秘的动物粪便。“Everyone stopped in their tracks to wonder what sort of poo it was,” Mr. Roberts said. “It ended up being from a lynx.”“大家都停下脚步来猜想这是哪种便便,”罗伯茨说。“结果是山猫的。”He was struck, he said, by how intrigued his companions were. “People are disgusted by poo, but there’s also this fascination with it,” he said. And so the National Poo Museum was born.罗伯茨说,同伴们着迷的模样触动了他。他表示:“大家都觉得大便很恶心,却又无法不对它感到好奇。”国家便便物馆于焉诞生。It is more of an exhibit than a museum, occupying a single room at the zoo, where it will be open until the end of the summer; after that, it will go on tour. It features 20 examples of feces from different animals, including pigeon, meerkat and lion. Each sample is suspended in a sphere of clear resin that can be illuminated with the touch of a button.不过这间物馆比较像是一个展览,只占了动物园里一个厅的空间,开放时间到夏季结束为止。接下它会巡回各地展出。馆内展示了20种不同动物的粪便样本,包括鸽子、猫鼬,还有狮子。每个样本都固定在透明树脂球里,可以按钮点亮灯光来观看。Before it is preserved this way, each sample must be dried. The bird droppings dried quickly, but a cowpat took about a week to dry out and the lion feces almost two weeks.各个样本在用这种方式保存之前,都要先干燥处理。鸟屎干得很快,牛粪团要一周才能彻底干燥,狮子粪则要两周时间。One of the more interesting samples, from a herring gull, has a white object tangled in it.在那些最引人入胜的样本当中,有一个来自银鸥的粪便,里面缠着一个白色物体。“The white part is the remnant of a plastic bag,” said Nigel George, one of the Eccleston George artists. “This tells a story of what human beings are doing to the ecology of a place.”“那个白色的东西是塑胶袋残余,”来自埃克莱斯顿#8231;乔治的艺术家奈吉尔#8231;乔治(Nigel George)表示。“这给我们讲了个故事,说明人类对一个地方的生态会造成什么影响。”The museum also features information on bowel cancer and the importance of keeping sewer pipes unblocked and unclogged, among other helpful tidbits about feces.除了展出其他颇有裨益的排泄物趣闻,物馆也特别介绍了肠癌的相关资讯,以及保持下水道管线畅通的重要性。“It’s had a huge resonance with kids,” said Bill Cane, another member of the collective. “The poop emoji is super popular now, and it seems to be riding quite a bit on that.”“孩子们和这个地方产生了很大的共鸣,”这个艺术团体另一名成员比尔#8231;凯恩(Bill Cane)表示。“便便表情符号现在超火,我们的物馆似乎搭上了顺风车。”In fact, Mr. Cane said, one of the children who visited the exhibit came clutching a plush-toy poop emoji.凯恩表示,有个孩子来参观的时候,手里还真抓着一个便便表情符号的玩偶。 /201608/459067
