A request by the World Health Organization (WHO) for more information on a surge in respiratory illnesses and clusters of pneumonia in children in China has attracted global attention. Health authorities have not detected any unusual or novel pathogens, the WHO later said, and doctors and public health researchers say there is no reason for international alarm. Authorities in Taiwan, however, last week advised the elderly, very young and those with poor immunity to avoid travel to China. The following is what we know about the surge in illness in the world’s second most populous country so far, and why experts think there
Have you ever wondered about the odd name “eggplant” or heard of its bizarre nickname, the “mad apple”? The tales behind these names are just as unusual as the vegetable’s appearance. The name “eggplant” dates back to the 18th century. It wasn’t inspired by the familiar long, purple type we often see and enjoy in Taiwan. Instead, it was a unique variety, which was small, egg-shaped and white, that earned it its name. While the British were in India, this particular form caught their attention. It prompted them to adopt the term “eggplant.” Even though new eggplant varieties in
限水與限電是近年來辦公室有時需要面對的問題，當碰上這樣的狀況，該如何發出公告讓團隊隨之調整應對方式呢？我們一起來看看。 ★Part 2 continued from last Sunday（延續自上週日）: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang Water Rationing Scheduled for Next Tuesday (20231024): We would like to bring to your attention that there will be water rationing in our office premises next Tuesday, from 0800 to 1900. This will affect our water supply throughout the day. Please take note and make necessary preparations. Rationing 管控 不管是水或是電(power)，限制的動詞都是使用rationing，原本ration的意思是理性，所以當我們用理性來使用資源，就成了限水或限電了。 Our company is rationing paper supplies due to recent supply chain disruptions. 我們的公司由於最近的供應鏈中斷而在配給紙張供應。 The IT department is rationing printer ink this month. IT部門本月正在配給印表機墨水。 Premise(s) 場所 附近的場所就用此字，戰爭片也常常用這個字來表示確保周圍場域安全，因為表示的是周圍的場域，所以通常會使用複數。 All employees must show their ID cards before entering the premises. 所有員工在進入場所之前都必須出示其身份證。 We are planning to expand our business premises next year. 我們計劃明年擴大我們的業務場所。 Preparation 準備 動詞是prepare，名詞則是preparation，通常搭配動詞片語為make/start preparations，因為需要準備的事物大抵上不會只有一項，故常用複數。 Preparations for
Have you ever taken off a sweater and felt a surprising shock? That’s static electricity, the buildup of an electric charge. It occurs when two items rub against each other, and electrons are transferred from one thing or person to another. If an object has an excess of electrons, it becomes negatively charged. On the other hand, when something has a lack of electrons, it naturally becomes positively charged. Opposite charges attract, so when a negatively charged object comes into contact with a positively charged one, the electrons will flow from the negative object to the positive one until the
