——今年16岁的Jack Andraka已经是科学领域的明星人物了。今年年初,他因发明了胰腺癌的早期检测方法获得了因特尔公司著名的高登·厄尔·摩尔奖(Gordon E.Moore Award)。眼下他又在进行下一项发明——一项可以对人体进行体检的手持仪器,该仪器有望通过读取人体体征,即刻判断出此人患了何种疾病。都说人小志气高,这位16岁的科学小少年又在挑战自己的创造力,为大众造福。要知道,他可不是我们想象中的科学小怪人,读一读他对儿童教育的独到见解:“与其通过智商排名评价孩子们,不如告诉他们创造力,毅力和适应力这些品质更加重要。”你就会明白了:天才是高智商和高情商的结合体。

——爵士时代的代表作家菲茨杰拉德(F. G. Fitzgrald)的名作改编的同名电影《伟大的盖茨比》(The Great Gatsby)上映之后迎来了褒贬不一的评价,但是导演巴兹·鲁赫曼(Baz Luhrmann)对负面评价不以为然,在采访中鲁赫曼说道,菲茨杰拉德写作此书在当时备受批评,而且不得不自己购买来获得高销量纪录,而如今《伟大的盖茨比》已经成为美国最畅销的小说。鲁赫曼也不忘开玩笑说,“上一周该书的销量比菲茨杰拉德生前的总数还要多,如果是由于这部电影的缘故,我也觉得没什么。”


“It\'s every athlete\'s dream, every footballer\'s dream to go out on the top—on top form or winning a trophy ... leaving as a champion.”


——贝克汉姆拒绝了巴黎圣日耳曼俱乐部的续签合同,宣布在本赛季结束后退出足坛。精湛的球技、耀眼的外形加上金童玉女的婚姻,这一切让贝克汉姆在过去20年里一直是足坛和时尚界关注的焦点,一代球星希望在自己胜利辉煌的时刻为自己的职业生涯谢幕,祝福小贝在绿茵场外的人生依然精彩无限。


“Our time zone is first, so logically it should be Ausmerica. ”


——近日,白宫请愿网爆红网络,各种不靠谱的请愿让人大跌眼镜,白宫网站于2011年设置的We the People版块原是本着美国宪法第一修正案的精神让民众在重要问题上有向政府请愿的途径,结果一不小心这个网站被世界人民当成了许愿池,甚至有中国网友要求白宫将豆腐脑的口味定为咸的。今年5月,有加利福尼亚州的居民请求美国合并澳大利亚,连国名都想好了,叫美大利亚(Ameristralia),不知道不支持此提案的澳大利亚人作何感想,但是支持两国合并的澳大利亚人也有异议,理由是:“我们的时区在前面,因此从逻辑上来说国名应该叫澳大利坚。”且不说30天内签名达不到十万,白宫不予回应,就算是真回应了,这个提议也不靠谱。

——今年的5月2日,世贸中心的重建工程终于迎来了公众企盼的历史性时刻:世贸中心一号楼的主体工程已竣工,最后一部分塔尖被吊装至楼顶,从而成为西半球最高的建筑物,同时也是世界第三高建筑物。世贸中心一号楼也由此达到了设计高度的1776英尺(约合541米),这个数字象征美国通过《独立宣言》的1776年。世贸中心一号楼是在“9·11”世贸中心遗址上施工建设的。纽约州的州长安德鲁·科莫(Andrew Cuomo)认为这是一个令人骄傲的历史时刻,他说:“世贸中心遗址上的这一里程碑象征着我们纽约州和我们国家的复原与复苏。”项目经理胡安·埃斯特维兹(Juan Estevez)则对媒体说道:“It\'s a culmination of a tremendous amount of team work...rebuilding the New York City skyline once again.”(它是大量团队合作的巅峰之作……再一次重塑了纽约市的空中轮廓线。)

——你能想象吗?地质科学家发现了26亿年前的水源,这是目前为止发现的最古老的水资源,甚至比多细胞生物的历史还要古老。该发现发表在今年5月的《自然》(Nature)杂志上,科学家在一个距地表两英里的地下矿井里发现了该水源,经过成分分析确定其有二十多亿年的历史。长期致力于地下水源研究的多伦多大学的地质科学家Barbara Sherwood Lollar称,“该发现令人无比震惊,它们竟然有几十亿岁了。”大自然总是带给我们无与伦比的惊奇,水渗入岩石层的夹缝中,流入地下,保留了下来,成为地质变化的记录者。科学家会进一步研究该水体内是否存在远古生命,如果答案是肯定的,那么与该水源类似的火星水源中也有望找到生命的痕迹。

部长演讲特辑【 I 】:The Role of Finance in the Peaceful Rise of China 重新思考金融在中国和平崛起进程中的作用

中国光大(集团)总公司执行董事、副总经理 解植春


About 20 years ago, I was inspired by Xiaoping\'s “South Tour Speech”, and decided to shift my career from working in the government to working in a financial institution. At that time, I started to learn English myself.


We are now still living in the aftermath of the global financial crisis.The negative impact of finance on economic development has been greatly criticized. In the U.S., as a response from the grassroots, there has been the “Occupy Wall Street Movement”. In China, there are also debates on issues like monopoly profit, high salaries, and the high service fee. As a senior financial executive, I couldn\'t help re-thinking these questions. Why are there so many criticisms and misunderstandings? What is the problem and how should we solve it? What is the function of finance in a modern society, especially in the rise of China?


Financial innovations have always contributed hugely to the development of human society, with the U.S. as a typical example. America replaced Britain as the new hegemony in the world, not only because of its military and geographical advantages during the two world wars, but also through the dominance of the US dollar established in the Bretton Woods system. In our reform and opening-up, the financial industry has made a significant contribution to our society. Without finance, the per capita living space could not have increased from 7 m2 in 1978 to 32 m2 in 2011; without finance, our highway mileage could not have risen from 890,000 km to 4,100,000 km; without finance, our university students could not have hiked from 850,000 to 23,080,000. without finance, we could not have held the most successful Olympic Games in Olympic history. In a modern society, finance is like air and sunshine that no one can live without.


Once we have fully acknowledged the function of finance, we have to recognize its current problems. Financial tools are neutral, but can be abused and cause disasters. Because of our country\'s passivity in the world\'s financial markets, during the past 7 years, more than 2 trillion yuan of our foreign exchange reserves have vanished into thin air. That reminds us of Japan in the late 1980s. The Japanese economy suddenly plunged, causing it to lose in its competition with America right after the “Plaza Agreement”. We must draw lessons from Japan.
