這一週又有哪些重要看點?

馬上為你一網打盡。


1. 福建男子被交警攔下,竟假裝外國人狂飆土味英語



前幾天,在福建福州,一男子騎電動車違法載人,被交警攔下了。


結果男子竟假裝老外,聲稱講不好國語、只能講英語。


這土味英語……


Oh~ My~ God~



本來是個違法載人現場,硬是被演成了翻車現場。


fafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafafa



2. 梅根拒見特朗普,英國媒體怒斥這是失職



特朗普這次訪英可謂餘波不斷。


其中很大一個餘波就是他和梅根之間的恩怨了。


他去之前就因為曾經罵這位現任王妃而被人詬病,去之後接受Piers Morgan採訪又被問及這個事。


不過,現在畫風有點反轉,Piers Morgan開始抨擊梅根了。


MEGHAN MARKLE has been attacked by Piers Morgan for “snubbing” US president Donald Trump’s state visit.

(英國著名主持人)皮爾斯·摩根抨擊梅根·馬克爾“怠慢”美國總統唐納德·特朗普的國事訪問。


The Good Morning Britain presenter accused Meghan, who is taking time off royal duties following the arrival of baby Archie in May, of skipping the US president’s visit due to her dislike of him.

這位《早安英國》的主持人控訴梅根,説她是因為不喜歡這位美國總統才不見他。而梅根自從5月產下寶寶阿奇之後一直在休假,並不承擔王室工作。


Writing in his Daily Mail column, Mr Morgan said: “So call me suspicious, but I don’t think her absence from Trump’s visit had anything to do with her baby, and everything to do with her dislike of her President.

摩根先生在自己的《每日郵報》專欄中寫到:“你可以説我疑心重,但我並不認為她不見特朗普是因為孩子。這完全是因為她不喜歡自己的這位總統。”


“And that, I’m afraid, is unacceptable. It’s not part of the deal.”

“而我認為這恐怕是不能被接受的。這已經是違約了。”


摩根堅持認為,作為王室奢華生活的回報,王室成員有義務在諸如特朗普訪英一類的活動上出席。


He said: “I’m sorry, but bunking off at home is simply not an option for ANY senior member of the Royal Family.

他説:“抱歉,任何高級王室成員都無權躲在家裏。”

3. 《權遊》狼家大哥,疑似出櫃


左:Richard Madden,右:Brandon Flynn


嗡~ 嗡嗡嗡~


嗡嗡嗡嗡嗡嗡嗡嗡嗡嗡~


如果你看到標題後覺得大腦一片混亂,別擔心,不止你一個人這樣。


史塔克家,的大哥,羅伯,出櫃了???


對象是《13個原因》裏的布蘭登·福林???騷姆的前男友???(騷姆指的是歌手Sam Smith,FYI)


Richard Madden & Brandon Flynn

最近,英美的娛樂版被這個事搞得心花怒放。


不光是因為拍到他倆勾肩搭背牽小手、反覆勾肩搭背牽小手,還因為大哥接受採訪時説了十分曖昧的話。


There’s been endless speculation on Twitter about Richard Madden’s sexuality since he was first spotted holding hands with “roommate” Brandon Flynn in Los Angeles, but there’s been no confirmation either way. 

自從理查德·麥登在洛杉磯被看到和“室友”布蘭登·福林牽手後,外界對於他性向的猜測就如滔滔江水源源不斷,不過雙方都還沒有出來證實。


But the New York Times took a more direct approach to in a profile on the Rocketman star, mentioning that “tabloid interest in his personal life has increased” and reporter Kyle Buchanan directly asking him if he’s dating the 13 Reasons Why actor. 

而《紐約時報》就決定更直接一點,在一篇關於這位《火箭人》主演的報道中寫到“娛樂小報對於他私生活的興趣猛升”,而記者凱爾·布克則直接問他是不是在和這位《十三個原因》的演員約會。


His response was both nonchalant and opaque, waving off the interest in his sexuality and instead focusing on the tabloid interest in his life.

他的回答則既冷淡又模糊,把話題從他的性向轉移到了娛樂小報對他私生活的關注。


“Madden shrugged, unbothered by the question but in no hurry to answer it, either. ‘I just keep my personal life personal,’ he said. ‘I’ve never talked about my relationships.’ He’s working on a way to deter paparazzi interest in who he’s seen with: ‘I wear the same clothes days in a row, because if it looks like the same day, they can’t run the pictures,’ he said. ‘There’s only so many photos you can have of me with a green juice walking down the street.’”

“麥登聳了聳肩,並沒有被這個問題激怒,也沒有急着回答。他説:‘我的私生活就是私生活,我從不和外界談我的感情生活。’他目前正在想辦法誤導狗仔隊,好讓他們搞不清他到底在和誰約會。他還説:‘我會連續好幾天穿同樣的衣服,因為如果這些照片看起來像在同一天拍的,那他們就沒有辦法用照片找線索了,比如我拿着一杯綠色果汁逛街的照片就那麼多。’”


Madden clearly grossly underestimates how willing we are to look at literally every photo of him drinking a green juice, especially if he’s doing it with his arm lovingly slung over a twink’s shoulder.

麥登顯然低估了我們的執念,我們當然會事無鉅細研究每一張他拿着綠色果汁的照片,尤其是如果他在照片裏還甜滋滋地摟着一個小奶狗的肩膀。


好了,


Hodor終於不是《權遊》劇組唯一的Gay了。


現在真Gay全在臨冬城,南方人搞的盡是些假把式。

4. Vans推出《哈利波特》主題鞋!


圖片來源:Vans


你是鞋粉,同時又是哈迷?有個好消息告訴你!


現在,Vans發佈了一系列以《哈利波特》為主題的運動鞋。


有4種不同的風格,名稱來自霍格沃茨魔法學校的各個學院。(如果你還想不好選哪個學院,可以去哈利波特的官網pottermore做個分院測試)


The designers had the very difficult task of taking a classic Vans model and identifying which house it best represented. So, for instance, Slytherin gets a lace-up Era sneaker in a black and green snake print. Gryffindor, Harry Potter’s own house, gets a Sk8-Hi high-top sneaker in the house’s iconic green and orange color palette, compete with the dragon crest on the side.

設計師完成了一項非常艱鉅的任務,即採用經典的Vans模型並確定最佳代表元素。因此,例如,斯萊特林系列就採用了黑色和綠色蛇紋印花搭配繫帶時尚運動鞋。格蘭芬多系列,哈利所在的學院,用標誌性綠色和橙色調色板中搭配了一個Sk8-Hi高幫運動鞋,與側面的龍冠相得益彰。


Vans has been on a tear with collaborations, most recently transforming its iconic footwear silhouettes through partnerships with rock legends like Led Zeppelin and David Bowie.

Vans在合作方面一直處於領先地位,最近通過與Led Zeppelin和David Bowie等搖滾傳奇合作改變其標誌性的鞋型。


This new collaboration capitalizes on the fact that the Harry Potter brand is still alive and well more than a decade after the final book in the series was released.

這一新的合作充分利用了哈利波特品牌經久不衰的事實,並且是在該系列的最後一本書發佈十多年後才推出主題鞋。


But more than that, this Vans collection gives the brand a new level of cool. While most Harry Potter paraphernalia involves things like cheesy T-shirts and toy wands, these sneakers incorporate iconic imagery from the films and books and transforms it into stylish sneakers that might even tempt consumers who aren’t superfans.

但更重要的是,這個系列將Vans的酷範兒提升到一個新高度。雖然大多數哈利波特周邊都是俗氣的T恤和玩具魔杖,但這些運動鞋融合了電影和書籍中的標誌性圖像,並將其轉化為時尚的運動鞋,甚至可能吸引非哈迷的消費者。


還有死亡聖器的衞衣。

5. 紐約市中心直升機墜樓引起恐慌,以為911重現


圖片來源:視覺中國


是的,一架直升機在紐約市中心撞上了摩天大樓的頂。


事發的時候很多人一度以為911重現,附近立刻進行了人員疏散,情況一度十分慌亂。


不過,後來發現僅僅是一起飛行事故,事件中也只有飛行員一人喪生。


The pilot, identified as Tim McCormack, was killed. The East Clinton, New York, Volunteer Fire Department said he served as chief there for 10 years. Before joining the East Clinton VFD, he was a member of the LaGrange Fire Department. With 15 years of experience flying helicopters and single-engine airplanes, he was certified as a flight instructor last year, according to Federal Aviation Administration records.

已確認飛行員Tim McCormack遇難。紐約東克林頓志願消防隊説他在那兒做了10年隊長,加入紐約東克林頓志願消防隊之前他曾是一名拉格朗日消防隊員。根據聯邦航空管理局的記錄,他在直升機和單引擎飛機方面擁有15年的飛行經驗,去年還獲得了飛行教練資格。


That model helicopter, which is used for executive travel, was flying in a restricted flight area when it crashed. Mayor Bill de Blasio said officials were investigating whether or not the chopper had received approval from flight controllers to go into the restricted zone.

該型號的飛機用於領導出行,墜毀時正在限制飛行區飛行。紐約市長Bill de Blasio説執法人員正在調查該直升飛機進入限制區域是否得到了飛行管控人員批准。


“We had a very strange, very troubling incident this afternoon here in Manhattan,” Mayor de Blasio said.

市長de Blasio説:“今天下午在曼哈頓發生了一起非常奇怪、非常麻煩的事件。”


De Blasio emphasized that “there is no indication at this time that this was an act of terror and there is no ongoing threat to New York City based on all the information that we have right now.”

de Blasio強調説:“目前沒有跡象表明這是一次恐怖襲擊,就目前我們所掌握的消息來看紐約市並未受到持續威脅。”

6. NASA也要賺錢恰飯,國際空間站要變旅遊景點


圖片來源:視覺中國


國際空間站現在要對企業和遊客開放了。


早前特朗普政府就一直在念叨,要讓國際空間站自己賺錢養活自己、不要再靠政府撥款了。


於是,現在這件事就發生了。


NASA just (metaphorically) whipped out a giant pair of scissors and cut the ribbon to welcome customers, because the International Space Station is ready for business and throwing open the airlocks to any company that needs to operate in low-Earth orbit.

NASA剛剛拿出一把大剪刀剪綵(一種比喻説法)開始招攬顧客了,國際空間站準備做生意了,向任何需要在近地軌道進行操作的公司開放氣閘。


Representatives of 20 companies joined NASA officials onstage to launch the space agency’s new commercial plan, which allows private businesses to operate on the ISS, including “in-space manufacturing,” marketing activities, healthcare research “and more.” It also lets private astronauts visit and stay on the ISS. (Start saving your pennies!)

20家公司的代表和NASA官員一起推出了該太空機構新的商業計劃,允許私人公司在國際空間站上進行操作,包括“太空製造”、營銷、醫療保健研究“以及其他活動”,也允許私人宇航員參觀並停留在國際空間站上。(開始攢錢吧!)


當然,私人旅行的那一塊,貴的很,所以沒多少人能上去。

7. 人造肉勢不可擋,領頭品牌Beyond Meat股價飆升



人造肉的熱潮算是徹底起來了,領頭品牌Beyond Meat前景大好。


現在不光是環保主義者推崇這些人造肉,餐飲業甚至養牲畜的農民自己都參與到支持的陣營,因為養牲畜真的是一個消耗非常大的過程,性價比十分低,麻煩還多。(同時越來越多的人不能忍受繼續屠殺動物)


而如果像這樣直接在實驗室培養肉組織,很多問題就解決了。


Beyond Meat的股票以不可阻擋之勢再次飆升,距上一次股價大漲僅過去一天。


Shares of Beyond Meat rose 39% on Friday, one day after its first post-IPO earnings report and about a month after going public. The company now has a market cap of $8.28 billion, according to Google Finance.

Beyond Meat的股價週五上漲39%,距上市後第一次發佈收益報告僅過去一天,上市也才一個月左右。谷歌財經顯示該公司現在市值82.8億美元。


The stock hit a high of $149.46 a share in late-day trading before closing at $138.65. That’s more than double where it landed after its first day of trading in early May.

尾盤交易時每股價格高達149.46美元,之後收盤價格為每股138.65美元,這是該股5月初上市首日跌幅的兩倍多。


這不是這家人造肉公司第一次超出了華爾街的預期。


它在4月份上市備案時做出過警告,説可能永遠不盈利,在2018年就虧損了3千萬美元。但僅僅一週之後在納斯達克剛開始交易股價就暴漲了135%。

8. Uber上市才1個月,COO和CMO就都離職了

Uber上市才1個月,首席運營官和首席營銷官就都離職了


Just a month after its IPO, two members of Uber’s C-suite are stepping down, according to CNBC.

據美國消費者新聞與商業頻道報道,Uber才上市一個月就有兩位高管要離職。


CEO Dara Khosrowshahi reportedly sent an email on Friday announcing that Barney Harford, the ride-hailing company’s COO, and Rebecca Messina, the CMO, are stepping down. Khosrowshahi wrote that the IPO has “allowed him to be even more involved in the day-to-day operations of Uber’s biggest businesses, the core platforms of Rides and Eats.”

據報道首席執行官Dara Khosrowshahi週五在一封郵件中宣佈這家打車公司的首席運營官Barney Harford和首席營銷官Rebecca Messina將離職。Khosrowshahi寫道上市“讓他更多地參與到了出行和送餐的核心平台的每日運營中了,而這正是Uber最大的業務。”


感覺最近就沒聽到Uber的好新聞,都是狀況。

9. 亞馬遜推出信用卡了,面向信用不太好的人


圖片來源:視覺中國


你信用不好?亞馬遜幫你解決。(只要你有錢可以抵押)


The e-commerce giant has a new store credit card targeted at people with less-than-perfect credit scores. In partnership with Synchrony Bank, the “Amazon Prime Store Card Credit Builder” lets people put down a refundable security deposit (yes, like an apartment), which will be used to set the card’s total credit limit. Synchrony will then collect that deposit from you and give you a line of credit.

這家電商巨頭針對那些信用評分不是很高的人推出了一款新的信用卡,和同步銀行(Synchrony Bank)合作進行的“亞馬遜Prime信用卡構建者”計劃讓人們存入可退還的保證金(對,就像一間公寓)用來設定該信用卡的信用總限額。同步銀行會收取保證金並給你信貸額度。


From there, people can spend money on amazon.com using their new credit from money they footed. Depending on how much money they spend on the card, users get 6, 12, or 24 months of no interest. (If people spend less than $149 with the card, they are not eligible for this promotional financing.)

之後人們就可以在亞馬遜上用新的信用預支錢來消費,用户可以根據信用卡的消費金額獲得6期、12期或24期的免息優惠。(如果信用卡消費金額不足$149,則不能享受這種優惠。)


The card’s APR is 28.24%.

該卡的年利率為28.24%。


According to WalletHub, the average interest rate for people with fair credit is 22.99%, and the average store credit card interest rate is 25.76%.

據錢包中心(一款微軟應用)顯示,信用良好的人的平均利率為22.99%,而商店信用卡的平均利率為25.76%。


這款“信用構建者”信用卡也享受亞馬遜類似卡片的補貼,包括沒有手續費和5%的返現。


這一項目的意圖是要吸引一波新的消費者,也就是那些信用不好的人,鼓勵他們去亞馬遜上消費並及時還款,這樣能提高他們的信用評分,就有機會取得另一張不需要全額預付信用額度的新卡。

10. 印度的奇觀垃圾山越來越大了,飛機都怕



印度的垃圾“珠穆朗瑪峯”飛速增長,現在需要飛機警示燈了。


新德里的Ghazipur垃圾填埋場繼續以驚人的速度增長,與倫敦橋的塔樓一樣高。在一年內,它的高度將超過泰姬陵,後者是印度最具標誌性的紀念碑之一。


Nicknamed 'Mount Everest' by locals, the expansive pile of fetid matter is already more than 65 metres (213 feet) tall. As India's Supreme Court recently warned, it's well overdue for some aircraft warning lights.

這個填埋場被當地人稱為“珠穆朗瑪峯”,大量的惡臭物質已超過65米(213英尺)高。正如印度最高法院最近出台的警告所言,已經超過需要飛機警示燈的高度了。


When Ghazipur first opened in 1984, this was - of course - never the intention. By 2002, the landfill had reached capacity at 20 metres and should have been closed. Today, the 21 million people living in New Delhi rely mainly on this ever-growing monstrosity and two other landfills, all of which hit maximum volume at least a decade ago.

Ghazipur於1984年首次開業時,這當然不是有意製造垃圾山的。到2002年,垃圾填埋場達到了20米的容量,就應該關閉了。今天,生活在新德里的2100萬人主要依靠這個不斷增長的怪物和另外兩個垃圾填埋場,所有垃圾填埋場至少在十年前都達到了最大值。


"About 2,000 tonnes of garbage is dumped at Ghazipur each day," a Delhi municipal official told the AFP on condition of anonymity. That amounts to about 10 metres of growth each year.

“每天約有2000噸垃圾傾倒在Ghazipur,”一位不願透露姓名的德里市政官員告訴法新社,其增長速度相當於每年約10米。


這一堆垃圾不僅十分辣眼,也是一種危險,東德里市政公司(EDMC)多次嘗試並未能將其關閉。


去年,官方的自滿情緒產生了致命錯誤。在一段山地因大雨坍塌後,有兩名當地人在山體滑坡中喪生。死亡事件導致垃圾填埋場關閉以及美國環境保護局(EPA)對此垃圾填埋場重新分析。


印度是世界上最大的垃圾生產國之一。該國也面臨着浪費危機。除非儘快採取措施,否則Ghazipur垃圾填埋場和其他類似垃圾填埋場可能會很快變得太大而無法清理。
