  法国总统大选

 French presidential election  

 


  Emmanuel Macron, a youthful former investment banker, handily won France's presidential election on Sunday, defeating the staunch nationalist Marine Le Pen after voters firmly rejected her far-right message and backed his call for centrist change.


  5月7日,年轻的前投资银行家埃曼努尔·马克龙轻松击败民族主义拥护者玛丽娜·勒庞,赢得法国总统选举。选民坚决抵制勒庞的极右翼思潮,力挺马克龙倡议的中间派改革。


  Mr. Macron's victory offered significant relief to the European Union, which Ms. Le Pen had threatened to leave. His platform to loosen labor rules, make France more competitive globally and deepen ties with the European Union is also likely to reassure a global financial market that was jittery at the prospect of a Le Pen victory.


  勒庞曾威胁要退出欧盟,因此,马克龙的当选对于欧盟来说如释重负。此前,全球金融市场一度因勒庞可能获胜而动荡不安,而马克龙提出的放宽劳动法规、提升法国全球竞争力、加强与欧盟的联系等政策也确保了国际市场趋于稳定。


  But the election results showed that many people chose not to vote for either candidate, signaling skepticism about his project. And Mr. Macron quickly made clear that he understood the magnitude of the task before him after an often angry campaign. "It is my responsibility to hear and protect the most fragile," he said.


  但选举结果显示,许多人选择放弃投票,表示对马克龙的计划仍心存疑虑。马克龙随即表明,经历了一场充斥着愤怒的竞选活动后,他理解了自己所面临的任务是多么艰巨。他说道:“聆听并保护最弱势的群体是我的责任。”

 staunch  忠实的,坚定的(拥护或支持)

  韩国总统大选

 South Korean presidential election  

 


  South Korean liberal politician Moon Jae In has won the country's presidential election on Tuesday, ending a decade of conservative rule and potentially reshaping the country's policy toward North Korea.


  5月9日,韩国自由派政治家文在寅赢得总统大选,结束了保守派的10年执政史,有望重塑韩国对朝政策。


  As a student in the 1970s, Moon was arrested and imprisoned for protesting Park's father Park Chung Hee. He went on to become human-rights lawyer, served as chief of staff for former liberal president Roh Moo Hyun, and narrowly lost his own election to Park in the 2012.


  上世纪70年代,学生时期的文在寅因反对朴槿惠的父亲朴正熙而被捕入狱。后来,文在寅成了一名人权律师,任前自由派总统卢武铉的秘书室长,在2012年大选中以微弱差距败给朴槿惠。


  In light of the scandal with the former president, Moon was seen as a clean candidate who would end corruption and revitalize South Korea's sluggish economy. Moon's plan to fight corruption centered on reining in what South Koreans called chaebol, family-controlled corporations suspected of forging shady deals with the government.


  鉴于前任总统的丑闻,文在寅被视为一名清廉的候选人,他将致力于根治腐败,重振韩国的低迷经济。文在寅的反腐计划以管控所谓的韩国财阀为中心,韩国财阀指涉嫌与政府进行不正当交易的家族企业。


  Rising unemployment among the country's youth was also major issue. Moon pledged to put forth a stimulus plan that would create more than 800,000 public positions.


  持续攀升的青年失业率也是韩国的一大问题,文在寅承诺推出经济刺激计划,新增80多万个公共岗位。

  美联航事件

 United Airlines incident  

 


  In the disturbing scene filmed by United Airlines passengers on April 9th on an overbooked flight, an Asian doctor who refused to be bumped from a plane screamed as a security officer wrestled him out of his seat and dragged him down the aisle by his arms.


  4月9日,美联航乘客拍摄到一架超售航班上令人不安的一幕:安保人员殴打一名拒绝放弃座位的亚裔医生,他高声尖叫,被安保人员拽离座位,沿过道拖行。


  For United and its CEO, Mr. Munoz, the videos have turned into a PR crisis. United drew quick criticism and threat of boycott for its initial response to the incident, with many people calling it tone deaf after Mr. Munoz only apologized for having to "re-accommodate these customers".


  这些视频已经演变成美联航及其总裁穆诺兹的公关危机。起初穆诺兹仅对“重新安置”乘客一事表示歉意,此举迅速招致公众对美联航的批评和抵制威胁,很多人认为这种回应“不痛不痒”。


  David Dao, the doctor who was seen being dragged off a United Airlines jet this month, has reached a settlement with the airline for an undisclosed amount, his lawyers said on Thursday.


  被拽下飞机的乘客名为陶大卫,是一名医生。4月27日,陶大卫的律师称,陶大卫已与美联航达成和解协议,但赔偿金额并未对外公开。

  随后不久,美联航宣布将采取措施,防止类似事件再次发生。美联航表示将设置新型登机程序,让乘客自愿放弃座位,并将补偿金额从1350美元(约合人民币9200元)提高到1万美元(约合人民币68000元)。

  《人民的名义》

 In the Name of the People  

 


  In the Name of The People, which cost some 120 million yuan to produce, features well-known actors like Lu Yi and Zhang Fengyi. The show is the first drama series to feature high-level government corruption as a central theme since 2004.


  《人民的名义》制作耗资1.2亿元,由著名演员陆毅、张丰毅等出演。这部剧是自2004年起首部以高层政府官员腐败为核心主题的电视剧。


  The message is to convey that China is “a country of the people, all power belongs to the people,” the narrator says in the show's previews.


  这部剧想要传达的信息正如预告片中所说:“我们是人民当家作主的国家,一切权力属于人民。”

  还会有更多这类电视剧亮相,因为《人民的名义》只是最高人民检察院影视中心出品的5部反贪剧之一。


  The term "main theme" is often used to refer to productions, including films and television series, that feature overarching themes with government policies. The production and broadcasting of In the Name of The People on prime-time screens, therefore, reflects Beijing's growing confidence that it is able to win the battle against corruption.

But, the court said, Yu did not face an "urgent or serious" situation, and therefore his self-defense was "obviously over the necessary limit."


  6月23日,山东省高级人民法院撤销了地方法院在2月份做出的无期徒刑判决,认定被告人于欢在2016年4月用刀捅刺四人是为了“制止正在进行的不法侵害”,但法院也认为,于欢面临的处境并不“紧迫和严重”,因此其防卫行为明显超过必要限度。

  On Tuesday, Lotte, one of South Korea's leading entertainment groups, agreed to provide a piece of land that the government in Seoul wants to use for the deployment of an American-made missile system known as THAAD. China strongly opposes the deployment of THAAD and had warned Lotte that its collaboration would have consequences.

  Shortly after Lotte announced its decision to turn over the land, its Chinese website, Lotte.cn, suddenly became unavailable. Lotte said in a statement that its website had been the victim of a virus planted by hackers. The same day, Chinese e-commerce site JD.com removed the Lotte shopping site from its platform.

  特朗普就职

 Trump's inauguration  

 


  After more than a year of campaigning, 26 primary and general election debates, and countless press conferences, attack ads, victory speeches, public apologies, and early morning Twitter rants, Donald Trump's inauguration is here.


  历经一年的竞选活动,26场初选和普选辩论,不计其数的新闻发布会、言论攻击、胜选演说、公开致歉和大清早的推特骂战,唐纳德·特朗普终于要就职了。

  周五(1月20日),特朗普将正式宣誓就职第45任美国总统。


  Event planners are estimating that 900,000 people will attend Trump's swearing-in ceremony and the ensuing parade - about half the turnout of President Barack Obama's record-holding 2008 inauguration ceremony. There's also a growing boycott among congressional Democrats; more than 50 lawmakers have said they will not attend Friday's ceremonies.


  据就职仪式的策划师估计,将有90万人参加特朗普就职仪式和接下来的狂欢--约为2008年纪录保持者巴拉克·奥巴马总统就职仪式人数的一半。拒绝参加就职仪式的民主党国会议员人数也在增加;有50多位立法委员表示将拒绝参加周五的仪式。


  Donald Trump has promised that his inauguration will "very, very special, very beautiful." By one measure, the event will definitely be as "bigly" as Mr. Trump envisions, given his inaugural committee has raised a record $90 million in private donations to help cover the tab.


  唐纳德·特朗普承诺他的就职仪式将会“非常,非常特别,非常美丽。”据悉,这个盛会将会像特朗普所期望的那么宏大,总统就职委员会筹集到9000万美元(约合人民币6亿元)个人捐款,用于负担费用。
