英国脱欧后,英语也要脱欧? -- 18::5 来源:chinadaily PHILIPPE HUGUENGETTY IMESIs the ed Kingdom’s exit from the European Union going to deal a fatal blow to the language of Shakespeare on the continent? English, one of the official languages of the EU, is very much spoken in Brussels and in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. But according to certain leading French politicians, its status after the Brexit should be questioned. 英国脱离欧盟会对英语在欧洲大陆的使用产生致命的影响吗?英语,是欧盟种官方语言之一,在布鲁塞尔和欧洲议会所在地斯特拉斯堡都非常盛行但是据某法国政要说,英国脱欧后,英语的地位也应受到质疑On Friday morning, the mayor of the southern French town of Béziers, Robert Ménard — a man with close ties to the National Front — reckoned that English no longer had “any legitimacy” in Brussels. 法国南部城市贝济耶市市长罗伯特?麦纳德与国民阵线有非常密切的联系,周五上午,他说他猜测英语在布鲁塞尔不再具有“任何合法性”Left-wing presidential candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who supports moving away from European treaties, has, his part, said that English can no longer be “the third working language” of the European Parliament. 左翼总统候选人让?吕克?梅朗松持把英语从欧盟协议中去除,他个人认为英语不能再是欧洲议会“第三大工作语言”了In various ways, they’re both wrong. The very complex operation of multilingualism in European institutions doesn’t rely on the single criterion of a member state’s membership in — or withdrawal from — the EU. 从多种角度看,他们都错了欧盟复杂的多语种工作机制并不依赖于成员国留下或退出欧盟这一单一标准The EU’s official languages are communicative languages recognized by the institutions. At the inception of the European structure, during the creation of the European Coal and Steel Commy (ECSC) in 1951, there were four: French, German, Italian and Dutch. Today there are of these official languages, including Bulgarian, Danish, Croatian and, obviously, English. In the European Parliament, all documents and discussions must be translated simultaneously into the languages. 欧盟的官方语言是由组织机构认定的交流语言在欧盟的初始阶段,在1951年欧洲煤钢共同体成立期间,有四种工作语言:法语、德语、意大利语和荷兰语如今有种官方语言,包括保加利亚语、丹麦语、克罗地亚语,当然了,还有英语在欧洲议会,所有的文件和会议讨论都必须同时译成种语言The official language of a member state doesn’t automatically become an official language of the EU (as is notably the case with Luxembourgish). This recognition happens at the request of the state. If a state withdraws, its language might also be withdrawn, even if a case it was never made. 成员国的官方语言并不会自动转为欧盟的官方语言(卢森堡语的例子就很著名),应一国要求,才会得到认可如果一国退出,它的语言也许也会退出,尽管之前没有过这样的例子Nevertheless, Great Britain’s exit should not be enough to abolish the use of English in Brussels, contrary to what Robert Ménard thinks. That is quite simply because the English language is one of the official languages of Ireland and Malta, who are still members of the EU. 然而,英国退出对废弃在布鲁塞尔使用英语而言还远远不够,和罗伯特?麦纳德所想相反道理非常简单,因为英语是爱尔兰和马耳他的官方语言之一,它们还是欧盟的成员Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s proposal is subtler because the European MP is targeting English not in its capacity as an official language, but as a working language. To enable the fluidity of exchanges within the EU, certain discussions led by certain institutions happen in a limited number of languages. Contrary to what the presidential candidate asserts, this isn’t the case during sessions of the European Parliament (except press conferences). The European Commission, however, does have three official working languages: French, German and English. 让-吕克?梅朗松的提议就比较微妙,因为他针对的不是英语作为官方语言的能力,而是工作语言为了保欧盟内部交流的顺畅,一些机构组织的一些会议中,语言使用的数量是有限的与梅朗松宣称的相反,这和欧洲议会的会议没多大关系(除了新闻发布会)而欧洲委员会有三种官方工作语言:法语,德语和英语This linguistic choice is clearly tied to member states’ influence, but it also follows practical concerns and historical traditions. Deliberation in the European Union Court of Justice takes place in French, as do the majority of discussions in the European Court of Auditors. 这种语言学上的选择显然是和成员国的影响力联系在一起的,但是它也要遵循实际考虑和历史传统欧洲法院的审议是用法语进行的,欧洲审计院的大部分会议也是用法语So although the U.K. doesn’t use the euro and has preserved its monetary sovereignty, the European Central Bank has, since its creation, always and exclusively used the English language. And this is not London’s sake, but the sake of not complicating its extremely sensitive communication by multiplying the channels of translation. ,尽管英国不使用欧元,保留着它的货币主权,但欧洲中央自从建立之初就总是使用英语一种语言这不是因为伦敦的影响力,而是因为不想增加翻译的语种,避免让它已经非常敏感的交流变得更复杂Vocabulary: inception: 起初 exclusively: 唯一地,排外地英文来源:赫芬顿邮报翻译:实习生孙美真编审:yaning

3个小孩不听话 被狠心妈丢弃在沙漠 -- :51:59 来源: 美国一个家庭3个5至7岁的孩子,只是因为不听话,被狠心的妈妈丢弃在沙漠中,所幸后来被经过沙漠的好心人搭救,妈妈则因涉嫌虐待儿童被拘禁 A Calinia mom and her boyfriend are both facing felony child abuse charges after police say they left her three young children alone in the Mojave Desert Wednesday, seemingly as a punishment.加州的一位妈妈和她的男朋友正面临虐待儿童的指控——星期三,警方发现他们将3个小孩丢弃在莫哈维沙漠中,看样子是为了惩罚孩子Outside temperatures were in the mid-90s when suspects Mary Bell, , and Gary Cassle, 9, allegedly left the kids, ages 7, 6 and 5, alone without water or shoes in the blazing sun near the city of Twentynine Palms.据称,当天的室外气温达到华氏90多度,犯罪嫌疑人岁的玛丽.贝尔和9岁的盖理加索将他们三个分别 7岁、6岁和5岁的孩子留在了二十九棕榈村附近的烈日下,他们赤着脚,也没有水喝The news was first reported by Desert Sun on Thursday.《沙漠太阳报最先报道了这则新闻The kids were found by a good Samaritan after being outside in the desert roughly 5 minutes.孩子们在沙漠中暴晒了约5分钟后,被路过的好心人发现They were subsequently placed into the custody of San Bernardino County’s Children and Family Services.

That’s OK the caveman, who needs to feed himself; not OK you in the 1st-century when you have to deal with an ever-growing range of tempting distractions. Which is why it is so baffling that Paris has been identified as the city with the shortest working week, when France is renowned having higher productivity than the UK.进化论决定我们势必非常忙碌对于洞穴人来说这也许没什么,毕竟他们需要维持生计;但对于生活在1世纪、需要面对日益增长的外界诱惑的你而言,则没有那么容易这就是为什么法国在拥有最短工作时间的同时,又因拥有高于英国的生产力而著称,此点着实令人困惑As a coach who specialises in enabling people to get more done more quickly, I notice that those who get the most worthwhile work done in the smallest amount of time follow a set of rules. Oddly, we are never taught these rules, and most of us just stick to the same old unconscious (bad) habits. Here are eight rules to help you get the most done in the shortest time:作为一位专门研究如何使人们更快地完成更多事情的导师,我注意到那些用最少时间完成最多有价值工作的人,都遵循着一套规则然而奇怪的是,从没有人教过我们这些规则,我们大部分人还是沿袭老旧的下意识的(坏)习惯以下八条规则能够帮助你用最短的时间完成最多的工作:1. Disappear1.消失Lock yourself in a room away from distractions and focus fully on one task at a time. Sounds dead simple, but try it. If you multitask a lot, you will find this especially painful. And research shows, interestingly, that those who multitask the most are in fact the worst at multitasking.将自己反锁在远离干扰的屋子里,某一时刻全身心专注于一项工作虽然这听起来非常简单,但你不妨尝试一下如果同时进行多项工作,你会觉得非常痛苦有意思的是,研究也表明,同时进行最多项工作的人实际上最不懂得多任务处理. Don’t fight distraction.不要对抗干扰Those who get more done quickly don’t fight distractions – we can’t. Rather, they work in short bursts, with high levels of focused attention, so that they benefit from the satisfaction of making headway on one important project at a time. They know they have been successful when they can answer a simple question: “What did I get finished today that was important to me and the organisation I work ?”那些最快完成工作的人从不试图对抗干扰-因为我们根本做不到相反,他们会最高程度集中注意力,以最短时间完成工作,并且某一时间段内在一个重要任务上取得进展还能给他们以巨大的成就感“今天我完成了哪些对我或者我所效力的机构很重要的事情?”当他们能够轻松回答这样一个简单的问题时,他们就知道自己成功了3. Simplify3.简化As Laozi said: “To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.” So what can you stop doing? Habits drive us to continue doing tasks that don’t need doing. Try not to take on more tasks without first asking: “Why is this really important?” Often we say yes bee even making a conscious choice. What can you simplify? Reduce emails and reports to the bare minimum. Encing brevity saves time everyone.老子曰:“为学日益,为道日损”那么你能够不做哪些事情?习惯驱使我们继续做些根本没必要的事情在承担更多工作前,首先问问自己:“这件事为什么如此重要?”我们常常没有经过深思熟虑就轻易拦下这些工作你能够简化什么?将邮件和报告减到最少删繁就简为所有人节约了时间. Find your rhythm.找到自己的节奏Do thinking work in the morning. It’s tempting to clear out emails so you feel on top of things, but you will not look back when you are in your 70s and say: “God, I was proud of keeping my inbox to zero.” Instead spend the first 60 minutes of your day on the one or two really important tasks you need to get done. It even helps to write them down the night bee – this sets clear intentions, which the brain likes as it can focus on what is in its control.清晨进行思考工作清理邮箱以完全掌握所有事情可能对你来说非常有诱惑力,但当你七十多岁回首往事时,绝不会说:“天哪,我为处理完了所有邮件而感到骄傲”相反,你应该把一开始的一小时用来处理一天当中最为重要的一到两件事甚至,在头天晚上把要做的事情写下来也会有帮助-这能清晰罗列目标,我们的大脑喜欢这样因为它能够帮助大脑掌握重点5. Strengthen5.专注强项How much of your day is spent doing things you are not good at? You will get through much more work more quickly if you actively arrange your role so you can focus on what you are good at and, even better, practise getting even better at what you are good it. Does Usain Bolt run half-marathons?一天当中你有多少时间浪费在你不擅长的事情上?如果你积极安排自己的角色,能够让自己专注于擅长的事情,你会更快地完成更多的事情,甚至可以将自己擅长的事情精益求精你见过尤塞恩·尔特(牙买加短跑运动员)跑半程马拉松吗?6. Watch the robots6.小心变成机器人Be careful about trying to get too efficient. Robots are efficient, and they are taking jobs and transming industries. It is better to focus on being effective, example working on the most important task – which requires you to think and be creative.注意不要过度高效机器人很高效,它们承担了一些工作并且变革了传统工业尽量专注于高效本身,比如解决最困难的任务-这需要你思考和创新7. Be honest7.坦诚It’s often our own deeply entrenched habits that stop us from getting more done more quickly. If you find yourself regularly sitting in long, poorly run meetings, or if you constantly switch from one task to another, then you are likely to struggle in the 1st-century workplace, which is currently going through huge change.很多时候,我们根深蒂固的习惯阻止我们更高效完成工作如果你发现自己经常参与冗长乏味的会议,或者你经常从一个任务转换到另一项任务,那么你很可能挣扎在1世纪的工作场所,而它现在正经历着巨大的变化8. Avoid s like this8.扔掉鸡汤文It’s easy to turn to self-help books when you consider the basic paradox: you won’t ever do all the things you need or want to do in your allotted time. But if you stop ing this and get to work, that might be a good start.当你思考基本矛盾:“你永远不可能在有限的时间里完成所有需要完成或者想要做的事情”时,你很容易求助于自助书籍(心灵鸡汤)然而,如果你抛开这些文章立刻投身于工作,也许是个不错的开端哦,000 bail each, the Associated Press reported.贝尔和加索的车停在这条路的不远处,他们之后被逮捕,并于星期五下午被告上法庭两人目前被拘留在洛根盆地监狱,每人需交万美元的保释金,据美联社报道It is unclear why the children were being punished. According to Bachman, the group appeared to be homeless and living out of their car.孩子们被处罚的原因尚不清楚据巴赫曼表示,看起来,这一家人应该是以车为家,到处流浪It’s not the first time parents have faced legal action allegedly deliberately leaving their children unattended.父母因为故意丢弃孩子而面临诉讼,这已经不是第一次了A mom in Connecticut, was booked in April leaving her kids on their own so she could go shopping. Similar cases have also occurred in Texas and Maryland.月,在美国康涅狄克州,一位妈妈丢下孩子们自己去购物在德克萨斯州和马里兰州也发生过类似的案例In Japan, a 7-year-old was found alive after a week alone in bear-infested woods where his parents left him as punishment throwing rocks at cars.在日本,一位7岁的男孩被丢在了熊出没的森林里独自生活了一周,而父母这样做,是为了惩罚他总是往汽车上扔石头
