缤纷世界


\"We are doing that because livestock production is not good for the environment, it is not going to meet demand for the world and it is not good for animals.\"


此图必用:世界首个人造牛肉汉堡.eps


——世界上的首个人造牛肉汉堡(\"test tube burger\" or \"lab-grown burger\")问世了!前些日子,在伦敦的一家餐厅,几位美食家还被邀请试吃了这个由荷兰科学家制作的实验室牛肉汉堡,引发了世人的关注与讨论。该汉堡的成本超过32万美元,可谓全球最贵的牛肉汉堡,它由荷兰一所大学的生物学家Mark Post研发。这个汉堡里夹的“牛肉饼”是用牛的干细胞(stem cell)培育而成。研究人员希望人造肉(cultured meat)能有助于缓解全球食品及肉类紧缺的问题。Post说:“我们这样做的原因在于,畜牧业生产并不利于环境,无法满足全世界对肉类日益增长的需求,而且于动物也毫无益处。”这项培育牛肉的科研项目由谷歌创始人之一Sergey Brin赞助。Brin认为这并非是个疯狂的创意,他说:“Sometimes a new technology comes along and it has the capability to transform how we view the world”。人造牛肉的诞生获得了动物保护组织的青睐与支持。鉴于可持续发展、环保和道义上的原因,在实验室培育肉的想法长久以来一直都吸引着科学家和环保专家。不过,口感以及消费者的心理因素也是不容忽视的问题。这是否意味着食品工业开始要被颠覆了?或者人们的饮食习惯要发生改变了?且让我们拭目以待吧!正如Post满怀信心地在试吃当天所说的:“最初的样品也许并不美味,但这是一个好的开端”。




\"I was in baby mode out there, thinking about nappies, I wasn\'t really in the zone.\"


威廉王子.eps


——初为人父的英国威廉王子忙里偷闲,近日与弟弟哈里王子一同参加了一场皇家慈善马球赛。皇家慈善马球赛一年举行一次,今年已是第11届,旨在为慈善教育机构SkillForce和皇家马斯登癌症慈善会筹款。比赛结束后,主办方向威廉王子赠送礼物,这位新爸爸打趣地问是不是为小王子准备的尿布,得知礼物是一根迷你马球杆后,他还笑道:“看来回家路上我得去买点尿布了。”谈及比赛表现时,威廉王子称自己正处于“婴儿模式,(满脑子)想的都是纸尿布,没有真正地投入比赛。”



\"It\'s one of the few times in history that technology has reinvigorated an art form rather than crushing it. Now, because there is such demand and the production value is so inexpensive, it opens the door for more creative storytelling.\"


僵尸小说《末日之战》的作者马克斯•布鲁克斯.eps


——数字技术革命大力推动了有声读物的蓬勃发展。僵尸小说《末日之战》(World War Z)的作者马克斯·布鲁克斯(Max Brooks)说:“技术非但没有毁灭、反倒是复兴了一种艺术形式,这在历史上并不多见(有声书便是其一)。现在有这种需求,生产成本又如此便宜,这就为更具创新性的讲故事方式提供了机会。”今年5月,该畅销小说在布拉德·皮特(Brad Pitt)主演的同名电影上映之前,发布了一个精心制作的全新有声版(an elaborate new audio edition),演员多达40位。这个版本已卖出了6 万份CD和数字音频。




\"I\'m too old. I wouldn\'t even have an interest in seeing what those people are doing 10 years later as parents that have to be responsible. It would be so different that it wouldn\'t be Friends anymore.\"


此图必用:老友记.eps

——如果你看过经典美剧《老友记》(Friends),就不可能不记得那个浪漫的乐天派Phoebe。《老友记》自1994年开播,一直到2004年第十季完结,眼看就要迎来完结十周年的纪念,可是Phoebe的饰演者丽莎·库卓(Lisa Kudrow)却并不是很期待“老友们”的重聚,这有点出乎意料。库卓说:“我已经年纪不小了,甚至没有兴趣知道那些人十年后都在做什么,他们已经作为父母去履行责任了。如今已经物是人非,不再是当年的《老友记》了。”不过,如果大家真的重聚在一起,相信一定少不了她的,Phoebe怎么会甘于寂寞呢?毕竟,这样的重聚,可不只是“老友们”的重聚,更是全世界所有美剧迷的集体回忆。

《了不起的盖茨比》出版于1925年,是美国小说家菲茨杰拉德的代表作。故事通过一位年轻人的视角,展现了20世纪20年代纽约长岛富人的奢华生活,也见证了所谓美国梦和纯真爱情的幻灭。好莱坞曾推出过四个版本的同名电影,均反响平平。2013年,澳大利亚导演巴兹·鲁赫曼再次将其搬上了大荧幕。影片公映以来,批评声不绝于耳,似乎印证了当初外界的担心:鲁赫曼未能领悟到这部对于美国人来说非常重要的小说之精髓。但也有人认为,新版《了不起的盖茨比》拥有让人愉悦的精美画面,这是值得肯定的。孰是孰非,让我们通过本文作者Amirah的解读,去一探究竟吧。



2013版《了不起的盖茨比》

The Great Gatsby : a Novel that Only Deserves to Be Read, Not Seen
《了不起的盖茨比》:一部只可品读,不可演绎的小说
By Amirah Ahmad
∷梅若思 注
Never have I witnessed a novel become so popular after being written nearly a century ago. The sudden eminence of the novel has dumbfounded me. What has me lamenting, however, is that I\'m seeing the novel being defiled before my eyes. Instead of being regarded as a literary classic, all it\'s been dwindled to be is a \"fad\" that will inevitably blow over in the next couple of months.

For those of you who have not already read the novel or watched the movie, the story\'s narrator is Nick Carraway, a relatively reserved and thoughtful young man. He moves to West Egg district and neighbors the notorious Gatsby. Gatsby\'s home is a luxurious mansion where he hosts frequent parties with the music roaring and the guests dancing all night long. What he does for a living remains a mystery and he peculiarly calls everyone \"old sport.\" Early in the novel, Nick is invited to lunch at his cousin\'s house, Daisy Buchanan, who lives in the East Egg district. Interestingly enough, Daisy and Gatsby know each other. In fact, they know each other very well. Nick reunites the two and thus begins the drama. Amidst the extramarital affairs, the love complexities, and rising tempers, Nick can\'t help but grow weary of living in the city.
The plot is simple and steady but towards the end the plot becomes extremely riveting and fast-paced. The end of the novel hits you all of a sudden, your heart still be pacing as you flip to the last page. Yet, although the story may seem slow at first, it is necessary to read in between the lines. There lies deeper meaning behind the setting, titles, and characters that is essential to understand before you reach the climax. For example, East Egg and West Egg reflect the two different types of wealth. West Egg district is for those people who have just recently struck it rich but still cannot enjoy the social respect of those who live in East Egg. Those who live in East Egg have old wealth from family and have a respectable background. Other things to scrutinize are the green light that dances across the water at night and transfixes Gatsby as well as other aspects of the city that may seem like unnecessary details. The joy of reading the novel is the thrill of seeking out such symbols and motifs by absorbing the text rather than just reading it.
