2.杰夫•贝佐斯(Jeff Bezos)——世界上最富有的人的使命

CEO of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, also known as the richest man in the world, just announced news of a new space craft; Blue Moon. This spacecraft is designed to land on the moon and was made by Bezos’ secret rocket company; Blue Origin. His goal is for humans to be able to travel to the moon as well as have extended stays for work and research purposes.

亚马逊的首席执行官杰夫•贝佐斯,被称为世界上最富有的人,刚刚宣布了一个新的宇宙飞船的消息:蓝月。这艘宇宙飞船由贝佐斯的秘密火箭公司“蓝色起源”制造,旨在登陆月球。他的目标是让人类能够到月球旅行,并为工作和研究目的延长逗留的时间。贝佐斯希望在太空中发现有助于解决世界能源问题的资源。

3.联合国报告:受人类影响,地球上100万物种面临灭绝威胁

Speaking of world issues, a recent report from the United Nations was just released and it claims that 1 million of Earth’s 8 million species face extinction. Many will disappear within our lifetimes. This is due to issues such as climate change, overfishing, pollution, and economic development. China is one of the top countries investing in green, or renewable, energy, which is definitely a step in the right direction. If we, as human beings, continue to grow more conscious of how our decisions effect the planet, we may have a chance to prevent more species from endangerment.

谈到世界问题,联合国最近发布的一份报告称,地球上800万物种中有100万面临灭绝。许多将在我们有生之年消失。这是由于气候变化、过度捕捞、污染和经济发展等问题造成的。中国是全球最大的绿色或可再生能源投资国之一,这无疑是朝着正确方向迈出的一步。如果我们,作为人类,继续意识到我们的决定如何影响地球,我们也许有机会阻止更多的物种受到威胁。

4.“最危险的首都”雅加达:全球下沉最快的城市

Indonesia will be relocating their capital from Jakarta to somewhere farther away from the ocean. Jakarta is one of the world’s fastest sinking cities. The city is home to more than 10 million people. Moving the capital could take up to 10 years, but as ocean levels continue to rise, the need to relocate the city becomes more and more important.

印度尼西亚将把首都从雅加达迁往远离海洋的地方。雅加达是世界上下沉速度最快的城市之一。这个城市有一千多万人口。迁都可能需要长达10年的时间,但随着海平面不断上升,迁都的必要性变得越来越重要。

5.明仁天皇:日本近代史上首位欲“生前退位”的君主

Japan’s Emperor recently stepped down from the throne due to health problems. He has become the first Japanese monarch in modern history to do so. He still remains popular and loved by the Japanese people and will be remembered positively through out the country.

日本天皇最近因健康问题退位。他成为日本现代史上第一位这样做的君主。他仍然受到日本人民的欢迎和喜爱,并将被全国人民铭记。

6.味觉测试机器人

I’m sure we have all been hearing a lot about developments in AI lately. Well, now there is a taste-testing robot that can detect the quality and authenticity of mass-produced Chinese food. The foods that have been tasted by the robot include pork belly, black rice vinegar, fine dried noodles and Chinese yellow tea. No more wondering if your meals are authentic Chinese cuisine; these robots will make sure that each mass-produced meal has just the right amount of each ingredient for a good tasting product!

我相信我们最近都听到了很多关于人工智能的发展。好吧,现在有一个味觉测试机器人可以检测大批量生产的中国食品的质量和真实性。机器人品尝过的食物包括五花肉、黑米醋、干面和中国黄茶。不再怀疑你的食物是否是正宗的中国菜;这些机器人将确保每一顿大批量生产的食物都含有适量的每种成分,从而做出美味的产品!
