关于我

三尺讲台是我的T台。选择了就不后悔,在与教育流氓叫板的呐喊声中像自己手中的粉笔一样,给孩子们描绘美好的未来,自己变成微不足道的粉末。

1 《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。

   And there’s more to come, since In the Name of People is just the first of five anti-graft dramas the Procuratorate’s broadcast department has been producing. 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. 包括影视剧在内,以政府政策为贯穿始终主题的作品常被称作主旋律。由此可见,《人民的名义》得以制作并在黄金时段播出,反映了中国对赢得反腐斗争的信心在不断增强。

preview  预告片

anti-graft drama  反贪剧

overarching theme  贯穿始终的主题

patent battle

A Chinese court in Quanzhou has ordered the Galaxy S8-maker to pay 80m yuan to Huawei for infringing the firm's smartphone cellular technologies.因侵犯华为智能手机的蜂窝技术,Galaxy S8制造商被泉州一法院判决支付华为公司8000万元。

     Huawei launched the legal action against Samsung last May and has subsequently followed with other claims filed in its home city of Shenzhen and California, covering more than 10 patents. 华为于去年5月对三星提起了法律诉讼,后续又在深圳和加利福尼亚提出了其他索赔要求,涵盖10多项专利。

   It has alleged that more than 20 models of Samsung's phones and tablets make use of its technologies without permission.华为称三星的20余款手机和平板电脑在未经许可的情况下使用了其技术。

   Although intellectual property disputes that pitted one tech giant against another were common a few years ago, they have been fought out of the public eye in more recent times. Even so, many of the details of the latest case were redacted by the court because of commercial privacy concerns. 虽然几年前让科技巨擘相互竞争的知识产权纠纷很普遍,但最近他们的争斗并没有引起公众的关注。即便如此,由于涉及商业机密,这起最新案件的很多细节没有写进法院的判决。

Putin expressed his condolences to the victims and said investigators are considering all potential causes of the blast.

普京表达了对受害者的哀悼,同时表示调查人员正在考虑引发爆炸的所有潜在原因。俄罗斯总理德米特里·梅德韦杰夫称爆炸为恐怖袭击,俄罗斯联邦委员会国防和安全委员会主席维克托·奥泽罗夫也认为圣彼得堡被选为袭击地点不是巧合。

  The Investigative Committee said in a statement that six people were arrested Thursday in St. Petersburg and two in Moscow. The committee didn't provide details on how the suspects may have been connected to Monday's bombing. 俄罗斯联邦调查委员会在一份声明中表示,已于周四在圣彼得堡逮捕了6人,在莫斯科逮捕了2人。委员会没有提供关于嫌犯与周一爆炸案产生关联的详细细节。

4空袭叙利亚

airstrike in Syria

The U.S. military launched 59 cruise missiles at a Syrian military airfield late on Thursday, in the first direct American assault on the government of President Bashar al-Assad since that country’s civil war began six years ago. 周四,美军向一叙利亚军用机场发射了59枚巡航导弹,这是叙利亚自6年前开始内战以来,美国第一次直接打击巴沙尔·阿萨德政府。

The operation, which the Trump administration authorized in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack killing scores of civilians this week, dramatically expands U.S. military involvement in Syria and exposes the United States to heightened risk of direct confrontation with Russia and Iran, both backing Assad in his attempt to crush his opposition. 此次打击得到了特朗普政府的授权,是对本周发生的叙利亚化学武器袭击杀害大量平民的回应。此举显著扩大了美国对叙利亚的军事介入,提高了美国与俄罗斯、伊朗直接对抗的风险,后两者支持阿萨德打压反对党。

  President Trump said the strike was in the “vital national security interest” of the United States and called on “all civilized nations to join us in seeking to end the slaughter and bloodshed in Syria. And also to end terrorism of all kinds and all types.” 美国总统特朗普表示此次打击关乎美国至关重要的国家安全利益,并呼吁所有文明国家加入我们结束叙利亚杀戮和流血事件的行动。同时还要结束所有形式的恐怖主义
