What are things to be cautious of while going to the UK


去英国要注意什么?

@Jake Warman

As a Brit I will give you some tips and warnings during your visit.

作为英国人我要给你一些旅行期间的建议和警告。

1. You will need a reasonable level of English to be able to communicate and you should not count on British people to be able to speak your language. This goes for pretty all of the U.K. with the possible exception of London.

你要有一定的英语水平才能沟通,不要指望英国人能说你的语言。整个英国都这样,可能伦敦会有例外。

2. Although London is our capital city, I would recommend going across the country which is best achieved by train although fares can get expensive.

虽然伦敦是首都,但我建议你可以周游英国,最好的交通方式是火车,虽然车票会有点贵。

3. A cheaper alternative is to use coaches. These services go to large towns and cities in the U.K. and it gives you a chance to look at the countryside.

更廉价的方式是坐汽车,可以到达英国各大城市城镇,还有机会看看乡村景色。

4. If you visit a Public House, in most cases you will need to go to the bar to order drinks and do not assume that a waiter or waitress will come to your table.

去小酒馆的话,大多数情况下需要去吧台自己点饮品,不要以为服务员会来桌边。

5. Tips are usually reserved to table staff in restaurants and taxis. For the former it is usually 10% of your bill and in taxis, round up your fare to around 5–10%.

通常要给饭店服务员和出租车司机留小费,给服务员的小费通常是账单的10%,给出租车司机的小费大概是车费的5%10%

6. When greeting someone, greet a younger person with their title Mr. Miss. etc for the first time however they will usually be on a first name basis thereafter. Older people will take longer to be on a first name basis. Also in a formal setting, people will likely use Sir and Madam and I would advise doing the same.

打招呼时,如果对方比你年纪小,第一次要加上“先生”或“女士”等称呼,以后就可以直呼其名了。然而如果对方比你年长,就要过很长时间才能直呼其名。在正式场合人们也会使用“先生”和“女士”,我建议你也这样做。

7. Queuing is a very British thing and exists throughout all parts of British society. If a queue exists, find the back of the queue and join at the back. DO NOT cut in the queue.

排队是英国的习惯,在英国随处可见。如果需要排队,你要走到队末排上,绝对不要插队。

8. Indoor smoking in all public places has been banned in the U.K. since July 2007. If you need to smoke in a restaurant or a pub, you will need to go outside.

20077月起英国所有公共场所都禁止在室内吸烟,在饭店或酒馆想吸烟的话你需要去外面。

9. If you are having a conversation on your phone, do not talk in a loud manner.

打电话聊天时不要大声讲话。

10. Discussion of British politics should be avoided if possible.

应该尽量避免讨论英国政治。

人们都说,如果来新西兰只能去一个地方,那只能是皇后镇。

The Queenstown of New Zealand is a beautiful town surrounded by the Southern Alps and a beautiful city leaning against the mountains and waters.

新西兰的皇后镇是一个被南阿尔卑斯山包围的美丽小镇,也是一个依山傍水的美丽城市。

In summer, natural lakes and ample sunshine make Queenstown an ideal place to enjoy the sun, fishing, hiking and leisure. Autumn day is high and cool, it is a good time to play golf, beautiful leaves will set off the peak is particularly gorgeous.

中国好食物的未来

By:Matilda Ho

I was six when I had the first chance to learn what patience means.

我六岁那年第一次知道了“耐心”这个词的意思。

My grandmother gave me a magic box as a birthday present, which neither of us knew would become a gift for life.

我外祖母给了我一个神奇的盒子作为我的生日礼物,我们那时候都不知道这个礼物会成为我重要的一部分。

I became obsessed with magic, and at 20, I became an amateur dove magician. This act of magic requires that I train my doves to sit and wait inside my clothing.

20岁时,我变成了一个业余的鸽子魔术师,这种魔术需要对鸽子进行训练,训练它们耐心等在衣服角落。

As a young magician, I was always in a rush to make them appear, but my teacher told me, the secret to the success of this magical act is to make my doves appear only after they’ve waited patiently in my tuxedo.

作为一个年轻魔术师,我总是迫不及待得让它们现身,但是我的老师告诉我,这个魔术成功的秘密就在于让我的鸽子耐心等待后华丽现身于我的礼服。

It has to be a mindful kind of patience, the kind that took me some years to master.

这是一种有意识的耐心,这种意识需要长年累月的培养。

In China, where everyone and everything is in a hurry, you need to outperform over 1.3 billion other people to build a better life.

在中国,每个人总是急急忙忙的,你需要胜过其他13亿人才可能拥有更好的生活。

You hack the system, bend the rules, circumvent the boundaries. It is the same when it comes to food…… except that when it comes to food, impatience can have dire consequences.

你需要破解这个系统,熟知它的准则并且打破它的边界,这个道理对于食物也同样适用,但是当我们谈论食物时,不耐心的人往往导致最糟糕的结果。

In the haste to grow more, sell more, 4,000 years of agriculture in a country of rich natural resources is spoiled by the overuse of chemicals and pesticides.

当人们匆忙种植、抛售,这个拥有四千年农耕历史和丰富自然资源的国家,正在一点一点被农药和杀虫剂吞噬。

In 2016, the Chinese government revealed half a million food safety violations in just nine months. I told myself it’s time to bring a mindful patience into the impatience.

2016年,仅仅短短九个月内中国政府就批报了超过五十万个食品安全违规违法行为。我告诉自己,我们需要教会大家怎么变得耐心。

I launched one of China’s first online farmers market to bring local, organically grown produce to families. When we went live, 18 months ago, the food we could sell then was somewhat dismal.

我创办了中国第一家农产品销售网站,把当地的生产的,有机的农产品带给家庭。18个月前,我们的网站开始运营,但是我们销售的产品非常有限。

We have no fruit and hardly any meat to sell, as none that was sent to the lab passed our zero tolerance test towards pesticides, chemicals, antibiotics and hormones.

没有人能通过我们的网站销售水果和肉类,因为那些产品都达不到我们所指定的产品标准。

I told our anxious employees that we would not give up until we’ve meet every local farmer in China. Today, we supply 240 types of produce from 57 local farmers.

我告诉我们心焦的员工我们永不放弃寻找,直到见过每一个农民为止。今天,我们销售超过240种产品,这些产品来自57个当地的农民和农场。

So, you may still ask: Why are you trying to building a sustainable food system by driving a patient movement in a country where it’s almost to crime to take it slow?

那么你可能会问了,你所做的关于可持续食物发展,用的怎么是“耐心”的进行方式,特别是在中国这样一个慢慢做几乎是种罪过的国家?

Because for me, the real secret to success is patience--a mindful kind of patience that requires knowing how to act while waiting.

因为对于我来说,成功的秘诀就在于耐心,这种有意识的耐心,教会我们如何在耐心等待的同时做出行动。


Weird Poet

Yeats,叶芝,爱尔兰诗人,是“爱尔兰文艺复兴运动”的领袖。叶芝的诗受浪漫主义、唯美主义、神秘主义、象征主义和玄学诗的影响,演变出其独特的风格,被视为英语诗从传统到现代过渡的缩影。下面让我们来欣赏一下他的代表作吧!

When you are old

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,

当你老了,头发花白,睡意沉沉,

And nodding by the firetake down this book,

倦坐在炉边,取下这本书来,

And slowly read, and dream of the soft look

慢慢读着,追梦当年的眼神

Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

你那柔美的神采与深幽的晕影。

How many loved your moments of glad grace,

多少人爱过你昙花一现的身影,

And loved your beauty with love false or true,

爱过你的美貌,以虚伪或真情,

But one man loved the pilgrim Soul in you

惟独一人曾爱你那朝圣者的心,

And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

爱你哀戚的脸上岁月的留痕。

And bending down beside the glowing bars,

在炉罩边低眉弯腰,

Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled

忧戚沉思,喃喃而语,

And paced upon the mountains overhead

爱情是怎样逝去,又怎样步上群山,

And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

怎样在繁星之间藏住了脸。
