  3. Some theaters in China were reopening, but now they’ve closed them down again: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/china-shuts-down-all-cinemas-again-1287040 If they were as confident about containment as they claim to be in the propaganda, I don’t think they would do this. The domestic film industry as a whole is in shambles right now, as film companies can neither release their films online nor in theaters.
  4. some input are welcome. source 老杨谈谈 英国首相确诊,头铁也怕病毒敲 https://www.qingting.fm/channels/209678/ Script 各位好,欢迎进入本期的老杨谈谈,我是老杨,咱们今天呢,要关注一下英国这边的疫情进展,其实昨天最大疫情进展可能还有一点要说的那就是美国的疫情确认数世界第一,到底是这个世界头号强国,在节骨眼上拖拖拉拉终于把自己拉到世界第一了,真的是何必呢,那美国这事儿咱们今天不谈,咱们今天主要谈英国,因为昨天晚上实际上还有一个让大家很关注的消息,就是英国首相鲍里斯·约翰逊自己通过推特向全世界宣布,我确诊了,我的这个新型冠状病毒检测呈阳性了,而且有症状,如果他没症状的,那个咱们这儿按第6版的这个诊疗方案可以算是个无症状感染者,但是按他的说法呢还有症状——轻症,这样的话,鲍里斯·约翰逊也成了第一位感染新冠病毒的大国领导人,在英国其实前两天大家知道最有名的确诊者实际上是威尔士亲王查尔斯王子。 大家应该说这两天还正在担心呢,已经93岁高龄的女王现在身体到底怎么样啊,还没有担心出个结果,没想到是鲍里斯平常看上去身强力壮的一个中年男士啊,他中招了。鲍里斯推特上写的是什么内容,一个就说出现轻症,冠状病毒检测呈阳性,另外一个说我正在这个自我隔离,我会继续通过视频会议领导政府的工作,然后对症状呢,主要是发烧然后咳嗽,果然呢,病毒面前人人平等,英国王储、首相接连中招,现在就是首先我们说正常情况下就甭管你是谁面对传染病既然你确诊了,那我们肯定还要做一个很科学的事情都没有做流调,要做流行病学调查呀,谁把这个病传到你鲍里斯身上呢,谁又是你的密切接触者呢, 当然因为鲍里斯作为一国首相他的这个行程非常的公开,完全能够看得出来他都去过哪,首先看他最让人匪夷所思的事就是三月三号鲍里斯曾经去过一个医院,去看望了几名新冠病毒的这个患者,他接受媒体采访的时候特别说了一下,他跟每个人都握过手,这个风险就挺大的,对吧,不知道他当时这个防范措施做什么,握手以后这个是否马上洗手了呀,不太能确定的而鲍里斯最后一次这个公众活动的是前天晚上英国的26号晚上,他参加了一个全国性的一个给医护人员打气加油的一个活动,当时就有点像咱武汉那天晚上市民们都聚集在自己家的阳台啊,窗口啊,口喊武汉加油,中国加油,英国呢这是把这一套学学了,那些晚上也是英国人都打开门窗在自己的家门口在花园里给这个抗疫一线的这些医护人员给这些工作人员鼓掌,他不仅仅是这个医护了,实际上范围更广,是对整个公共医疗服务体系的这些工作人员为他们鼓掌,为他们欢呼,感谢这些人为了抗击疫情付出的辛劳。大部分人都在家里,但是首相当时不是一个人,当时还有一些这个工作人员,此外那天他参加了一个活动就是这个G20,二十国集团领导人共同出席的一个视频会议,各国领导人在一起讨论怎么共同应对新冠肺炎的疫情。 另外呢,鲍里斯·约翰逊还有一些这个非常亲近的工作人员,比如说这个首相首席特别顾问,这个多米尼克先生呢,也非常的有意思,正好被BBC拍到了一段,就是这个人背着包从这个首相官邸一通跑,很多媒体拿这个视频打趣说,当你得知老板得了新冠肺炎以后你这么一通跑,但实际上它是为什么跑现在也不得而知,是不是什么急事不知道,只知道目前他还没有出现症状,但是那也没有接受检测,但也接受了这个社交隔离的建议,你最密切接触者先隔离着观察着吧,另外还有一个就是英国财政大臣, 最近也是经常出现的鲍里斯身边,所以这个人目前英国媒体说法也是要进行社交隔离,而至于另外一边就是英国王室里面,查尔斯王子这个公开活动太多了,所以流行病学追踪基本上没法做,只能说这个女王最后一次能够看到的跟这个查尔斯王子接触的时间比较早,是在三月九号,当时整个王室参加了一个英联邦日的纪念活动,这样算的话,应该当时查尔斯还没有感染,就算有天女王感染了,那应该也不是查尔斯传染给她的。还在这个潜伏期之前呢,但是问题来了,那么这个英国女王有没有跟鲍里斯·约翰逊接触呢,实际上也有,却都是工作任务察得到3月11号英国女王接触过鲍里斯·约翰逊, 这样一算的话,那实际上16天,那就有点玄了,对吧,当然目前王室方一直说女王很健康很健康,毕竟90多岁老人了,咱也希望她健康吧。那现在呢这个英国首相鲍里斯·约翰逊感染的消息一出来呢,大家就关注了,那14天隔离能严格做到吗?据说是能严格的,他这个饭菜有人送,但是只送到门外坚决不和他接触,不过那个隔离时间比咱们想象的短,时间只隔离7天,7天以后那到底什么以后咱们再看吧,那么现在鲍里斯·约翰逊疫情感染以后肯定他对于整个英国的这个疫情包括经济都会产生一定的冲击,英国这个英镑的汇率立马就出现了一个短暂跳水的情况,但是后来稍微涨起来,不过更受冲击的是英国股市,而且英国股市跌了之后,连带整个欧洲股市刮刮往下跌,此外,还有点就是说万一,万一这个鲍里斯·约翰逊他这个没能很快痊愈呢,让我们就说这种情况把, 那英国的大权将交到谁呢,这个已经有安排了,顺的来这个是英国的一个所谓的指定幸存者的这样的一个制度,首相如果感染了那么临时执政会交给这个外交大臣这个第一国务大臣,这也是鲍里斯·约翰逊内阁里面排名最高的一个成员交给这个多米尼克·拉布,原因就在于鲍里斯也没有任命副总理,所以他能够选择任何一名内阁大臣来接任他的工作,所以咱们就看好这个约翰逊到的身体情况怎么样,也是那是说不清楚是目前来说还是能够继续领导着英国的,但是如果说病情加重了,导致暂时或者说长期无法保持工作状态的话,那么这个就是这个事可能交给拉布了,说起来这个拉布前两天也是因为身体状况上了一次英国媒体头条,在这个内阁会议上一通闷咳把周围人也吓坏了,不过现在看应该也就是普通的咳嗽,那个咳嗽当时真的很厉害咳了,英国网友说这人是不是感染了, 整个内阁会议其他的同事都被吓坏了,后来这个拉布也做了这个检测,挺好,是阴性,但是呢,他那个时候是阴性,这个作为内阁里这么重要的人鲍里斯也中招了,这个英国卫生大臣都中招了,这些都是同事啊,内阁中到底还有多少感染者呢,真不好说,那当然说会不会再举行的首相大选呢这个很是有悬念的,按照英国宪法的话,英国是议会制国家,是没有必要立刻进行首相大选, 但是呢,英国反对派未必会错过这个机会,所以到时候会不会有来重怎么样的操作,但需要看鲍里斯的身体状况,目前来看,你看英国这个高层人物都中招成这样了,感染成这样了,那英国普通民众感染的程度能好到哪去呢,当然好不到哪去了,就在鲍里斯·约翰逊感染的这一天英国累计确诊人数量已经正式突破10000,几近全球前十,这个感染的病例已经接近12000例,想必大家听到这期节目的时候,恐怕这个数字还要再上,妥妥的要突破15000,这个确诊的这个人数这个增速是非常快的,每天已经稳定的超过1000,而且从前天开始已经出现了英国民众还没有等到测试就已经死在家中的这种很惨烈的这种事情。 这种悲剧事业上我们国内也经历过,湖北武汉当时最糟糕的时候也有过类似的这种悲剧,看到相关报道是感觉很痛心的,那英国现在的状况只会更糟,因为他还没有真的开始大规模的检测,所以最惨烈的时候还没有到,什么时候到不知道。而且还有一个侧面数据,就是咱不知道的英国的情况,但是我们知道来中国的这些外国人情况,目前这个境外输入型病例来源国对比里面,英国是遥遥领先呢,比西班牙的多,比美国的多,比伊朗多,比意大利也多,这恐怕就是一个侧面说明英国感染的人比例那真的是多呀。 毕竟不是说就你英国人来中国对吧,但是这么多国家的人来中国,英国感染的那就是最多的而且遥遥领先,与后面西班牙的多一倍,那这就是问题啊,英国有一个学校伦敦国王学院开发了一款软件,它就是在预测和实时统计,就是英国普通人到底感染了多少,挺吓人,那个伦敦国王学院开发的软件预测说,英国目前感染人数超过600万人,好吓人,当然这不是最狠的了,之前牛津大学还有个传染病研究团队说,英国可能有36%甚至有可能到达68%的民众感染新冠病毒,感染人口达到60%是多吓人,但是这个数字的实际上又接近之前英国提出群体免疫说法的时候的那个门槛线,当时咱们开始节目特别把这个群体免疫说了一通,太没有人性了,对吧,令人发指啊,现在来看英国防控也是乖乖的把他说出的话吞回去了。 最早英国第一阶段防控的时候,就是说英国要把这个疫情进入拖延阶段,未来只重点监测症状严重的患者,那个时候英国整个确诊人数不到600人,全国大概因为这个新冠肺炎确认死亡的是10人左右,当时鲍里斯·约翰逊给出这个说法称得上全世界也吓坏了,就感觉是英国要主动放弃啊,全世界基本所有的这个专家都是联名反对这个事儿,现在来看,英国也放弃了这个说法,进入了一个主动的阶段,我觉得这是应该鼓励的,甭管他的这个措施我们觉得是不是很强力,做总比不做好,把这个传播基数以从2控制到1.9,那还是一个进步啊,如果能控制1以下,那更好,现在英国这种风控手段明显在逐渐向中国靠拢, 当时他会说我是学法国学西班牙意大利那随便你,甭管学谁,咱不觊觎这个名分啊,英国现在所有学校停课,伦敦封城,整个伦敦现在动员起来了,恐怕很多上年纪的英国人回想起当年二战的感觉,英国军人现在处于待命状态,开始建设属于英国的方舱医院,此外,英国宣布召回退休的医护人员,调动即将毕业的这个医学生护士学生,同时征召志愿者,大概要征召几十万的这样的英国公共卫生系统的志愿者,目前来看,就看英国的这个所谓南丁格尔医院什么时候能投用,这个南丁格尔医院是英国要修一个大型的方舱医院,把英国伦敦最大的这个国际政治中心给动员起来了,这个方舱医院一旦修起大概能提供4000多张床位。 除此以外,英国会在全国修大概10个左右的方舱医院,我觉得,方舱医院实际上现在回头来看,我们对抗疫情的时候一个转折点,当我们大规模修方舱医院的时候,我们就对这个病毒展开了主动进攻的这些短把,所有的轻症病人全不收治进去,这样的话,极大地减少了轻症病人在家隔离所产生的这种家庭内部或者社区内部的这种传染,我觉得这一招被国外借鉴,非常好的,恐怕欧美国家就是再头铁的现在也该警觉了,光像他们过去那样吹着,我拖延也好,怎么样,就是光盯着重症收治去控制这个死亡率,不去阻断轻症,不去阻断这个无症状感染者传播通道,这个病毒根本就控制不住, 这个国家再发达,你的这个医疗基础再强,那个活生生的打成了一个添油战术,你就是把医患把病人往这疫情里再送,意大利也好,西班牙也好,现在的英国也好,都是掉进了坑里面,那美国实际上也掉进了这个坑,美国全国到处都有疫情蔓延,所以都是这个样子的,要想不这样那只能说说他什么应收尽收,努力地修越来越多的方舱医院把所有的有症状的人全部先放在这个医院里,然后重症的再去花大力气去挽救他们的生命,轻症的在这儿起个维持最主要的是隔离的作用,不然的话,别的什么招现在看来都没用,毕竟你没有特效药,此外还有就是英国现在警方也开始拥有了更多的强硬的执法权,谁违反禁足令直接罚款,最高可以罚1000英镑。英国媒体还之前说咱们的防控措施是非常的严苛的,不知道怎么解释他这种,西方媒体的这个双标致命双标不想再说什么,说多了我都烦,当然他的这个风控措施也还是有他松的一面, 比如说,要求英国民众停止不必要的外出,但是呢他留了四个口子的购买生活必需品,这个没什么说的,第二,寻求医疗帮助,第三,绝对必要的上下班,这个肯定就是要发生了,咱们这也是一些服务,一些停不得的企业呢还是要继续保持上下班的,还留了一个竟是一种户外锻炼方式,把这个留着,我不知道是为什么呢,真的在乎身体健康的人一定要在这个时候出门吗,不过整体来说,英国现在这个防控措施应该说还是比想象的还要严厉的多,也希望这些措施能够取得实实在在的作用,只是有一点我希望英国一定要警惕,那就是民众的恐慌。 你想想,一国首相都患病了,那普通民众心里得有多害怕,当然像他都得了谁能幸免呢,如果说约翰逊身体很硬了很好,果然他扛过去了,那我觉得是个正面的,他会告诉大家安安心心在家隔离,但是如果说,出现了更坏的结果呢,那到底有多恐慌会带来怎样的连锁反应,简直不敢想,当然了,今天咱们主要说的还是英国,美国作为全球疫情最严重,至少确诊绝对数量最高的国家,它的疫情前景也会怎样呢,我相信这个确认数字在翻两倍一周也没有觉得超过200000我都不会惊讶, 毕竟像咱们中国我们当时经历过什么,我们主要就是以武汉为中心,然后湖北比较严重,周边其实还好,美国每个州到处都是,非常的分散,你这个时候就很难像我们这样做到围点打援了,你就是烽烟四起啊,你顾得了西头你顾不了东头,所以恐怕更糟糕的情况还是后面,就这样现在特朗普还是要召集复工呢,但是这一切都意味着疫情现在对全球的考验还没有到最高峰,我们也远远没有到可以放心下来放松的时候,继续努力吧,好了,本期就聊这么多。 Note The Queen, who is 93 years old, is still worried about how her health is. What did Boris tweet about? One said he had a mild case of coronavirus, and the other said I was in self-isolation, and I would continue to lead the government through video conferencing, and then the symptoms, mainly fever and cough, and the British Crown Prince and Prime Minister were hit one after another. The other side is the British royal family, Prince Charles has too many public activities, so epidemiological tracking is basically impossible, only to say that the last time the queen could see contact with Prince Charles was earlier, on March 9, when the entire royal family attended a commemoration of Commonwealth Day. But the question is, did the Queen of England have contact with Boris Johnson, which she did. British senior figures have been tricked into this, infected like this, how well the British general public can be infected, of course, not so well, on the day Boris Johnson was infected, the cumulative number of confirmed people in Britain has officially exceeded 10,000 people come to China, but so many countries come to China, Britain infected that is the most and far ahead, with Spain behind more than double, that is the problem the King's College London developed software prediction that Britain is currently infected with more than 6 million people, very scary, of course, this is not the most ruthless, before Oxford University has an infectious disease research team said, Britain may have 36% or even 68% of the population infected with new coronavirus, infected population up to 60% is more scary, but this number is actually close to the British before the group immunization said that threshold line New words 拖拖拉拉 [tuō tuō lā lā] 何必 [hé bì] 这事儿 [zhè shì ér] 鲍里斯·约翰逊 [bào lǐ sī · yuē hàn xùn] 冠状病毒 [guān zhuàng bìng dú] 感染者 [gǎn rǎn zhě] 新冠病毒 [xīn guān bìng dú] 威尔士 [wēi ěr shì] 鲍里斯 [bào lǐ sī] 看上去 [kàn shàng qu] 身强力壮 [shēn qiáng lì zhuàng] 视频会议 [shì pín huì yì] 流行病学 [liú xíng bìng xué] 看得出来 [kàn de chū lái] 匪夷所思 [fěi yí suǒ sī] 全国性 [quán guó xìng] 医护人员 [yī hù rén yuán] 工作人员 [gōng zuò rén yuán] 二十国集团 [èr shí guó jí tuán] 多米尼克 [duō mǐ ní kè] 首相官邸 [shǒu xiàng guān dǐ] 不得而知 [bù dé ér zhī] 财政大臣 [cái zhèng dà chén] 英联邦 [yīng lián bāng] 潜伏期 [qián fú qī] 指定幸存者 [zhǐ dìng xìng cún zhě] 外交大臣 [wài jiāo dà chén] 国务大臣 [guó wù dà chén] 多米尼克·拉布 [duō mǐ ní kè · lā bù] 约翰逊 [yuē hàn xùn] 内阁会议 [nèi gé huì yì] 议会制 [yì huì zhì] 到时候 [dào shí hòu] 妥妥的 [tuǒ tuǒ de] 大规模 [dà guī mó] 遥遥领先 [yáo yáo lǐng xiān] 伦敦国王学院 [lún dūn guó wáng xué yuàn] 牛津大学 [niú jīn dà xué] 令人发指 [lìng rén fà zhǐ] 动员 [dòng yuán] 上年纪 [shàng nián jì] 公共卫生 [gōng gòng wèi shēng] 南丁格尔 [nán dīng gé ěr] 国际政治 [guó jì zhèng zhì] 除此以外 [chú cǐ yǐ wài] 转折点 [zhuǎn zhé diǎn] 死亡率 [sǐ wáng lǜ] 活生生 [huó shēng shēng] 添油战术 [tiān yóu zhàn shù] 双标 [shuāng biāo] 生活必需品 [shēng huó bì xū pǐn] 实实在在 [shí shí zài zài] 安安心心 [ān ān xīn xīn] 连锁反应 [lián suǒ fǎn yìng] 到处都是 [dào chù dōu shì] 围点打援 [wéi diǎn dǎ yuán] 烽烟四起 [fēng yān sì qǐ] 特朗普 [tè lǎng pǔ] 意味着 [yì wèi zhe] 最高峰 [zuì gāo fēng]
  5. In my opinion, translation into the language you are learning is a very useful learning tool provided that you are translating appropriate material, and that you have someone reliable who is able to check your translations. As for appropriateness, in my opinion, the best material contains the kind of language you would be want to be using yourself. For this purpose, I like editorials, which usually are critiques on current affairs in semi-formal language, though this is still too advanced for HSK4. Personally, I don't think fiction/literature is good for this purpose, because there is often additional meaning beyond the literal use of the words which is open to interpretation, difficult to capture in your non-native language, and not the kind of language you would ever use in your real life anyway.
  6. Nope HSK 6 gets you halfway. Is "HSK 6 gets you halfway" really accurate??? When I watch TV dramas and analyse them with CTA, yes, about 50% of the unique words are non-HSK. But those 50% vary from drama to drama. There is obviously some overlap, but there is also a big difference in vocabulary between a romantic drama and a war or sci-fi drama... I would think maybe it is more like HSK 6 gets you 10% (?)

    I would love it if you or anyone else capable of writing such a script could do this 😃 Bump 😉
  8. 大家好! Can someone please explain me what character is this? (Write it) I can't understand it. Thank you!

  10. I can't find the original article I read, but I also found it here on ChinaDaily http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/global/2019-08/05/content_37498627.htm Yeah, it's pretty crazy how fast these schools turn around. In my old office building, all you could hear was constant decorating. While one school is opening, others are shutting down. The outside of the building is nonstop changing the signs of different education places. I know that to be registered in Hangzhou you have to be on the third floor or below, and as these are mostly above the third floor, you can see the problem. There are still definitely fewer schools working illegally than when I first arrived in 2012. Back then, I used to get approached just walking down the street "Hi! Where you from? English? English? You teacher? Wan' come teach my school?"
  11. Sharing some 中国QT Photos... I know someone on their 14 day QT right now. They picked a hotel at the 400rmb per room price and this includes breakfast. They can order food and drink into the hotel. The food is actually from a different hotel where 3 meals were provided due to having no option to order in. Overall they’re very happy with how they’ve been treated and the experience in general. Someone regularly checks in on them (phone calls) and in English. The people on site also speak some English. If they have any issues there’s always someone available to ask. They also got a negative test result back so just doing their 14 and then can go home.
  12. Interesting! Where are those stats from? I left that industry in 2015-ish. In Beijing at least illegal teaching less common now than it used to be. A lot less cowboy schools around. Those that are tend to be in quite far out places that few foreigners want to work. It still exists for sure but not as crazy as it was. Sounds like Hangzhou is still a bit wilder.
  13. When did you leave? In 2017 the government announced there were 400,000 English teachers in China with 2/3 being illegal. While there have been more restrictions such as "You can only have a 培训班 on the third floor or lower" or "you have to have a minimum of 500m2 space" to register, a lot of places are still opening up illegally, hence still hiring foreigners illegally. There really hasn't been much of a decrease over the last 3 years, and even now, majority of foreigners you meet (in Hangzhou at least) are all teaching English. Considering quite a few aren't even native speakers, they must be illegal workers too as they can't get a working visa.
  14. Thank you very much for your reply! That’s really interesting to hear. I’m wondering whether the stamp-like elements on the left in the background have something to do with the work as well (if they’re not too difficult to see).
  15. Is this really true these days? A “huge majority”? I can’t imagine this being true in most of the larger cities these days. By the time I left that industry things were already tightening up a lot.
  16. Looks like a section from a 八破画.
  17. "Do you know if it's also on 微信 Weixin?" On Weixin, if you go to Me >> WeChat Pay you'll find a link to "Anti-Virus Code." Haven't used it so don't know if or how it works, particularly for foreigners.
  18. Yesterday
  19. @Ruben von Zwack yes i’m agreeing with your point. the possibility that closing the borders is for some geopolitical advantage seems remote compared to fear of the virus returning.
  20. They don't exist, but it shouldn't be difficult to add them.
  21. What about the self-inflicted economic wound though, by reacting too late to the Corona virus. As far as I'm aware, at this point, no business expert and no politician in this world can even remotely assess the damage. Maybe it is just convenient in such a situation to play up tensions with other countries.
  22. This may be for a while, but the world needs to find a solution. For now, going to everyone wearing a mask (when supplies are sufficient in the Western world) should control the outbreak to the point when travel can happen again. China is ahead of the world in this. If their controls prove effective (and I expect this to be the case), then transmission will drop below that needed to sustain the epidemic (i.e., Ro<1). Long-term, we need a vaccine. Then we can return to life as normal. Humans show a strong immune response to the virus, so a vaccine is possible. However, it's hard to say when a safe & effective one will become available. Even longer term, the world should be investing more in vaccine research & development. However, once Covid-19 is addressed, interest in vaccine research will likely drop considerably and we'll go back to being surprised by a new virus. Fortunately, this wasn't like African Swine Fever that kills 90-100% of pigs and has been sweeping across Africa, Asia & Europe.
  23. This kinda seems like a 'please do my assignment for me' post
  24. agreed, it’s a pretty extraordinary self-inflicted economic wound. even during the height of the cold war america and russia were still issuing each other visas
  25. Interested to hear more on your thinking on this . Fairly extraordinary assessment to says its not because of the virus.
