“5G”大幕即将开启

Forget 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution), the stage is set for 5G wireless race in the telecom space. With the telecom industry continuously evolving globally, companies in the sector are fighting it out to stay ahead of the curve.忘掉4G LTE网络吧,接下来的通讯潮流将被5G所取代。随着5G网络研发的不断推进,全球的通讯企业都在激烈竞争,以求在新一股通讯技术热潮中获取领先地位。Recently, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced that China will issue “temporary” 5G licenses this year to boost the development of the next-generation mobile communications technology, which is expected to stimulate the economy and bring big changes to daily life.近日,工业和信息化部宣布我国将在今年颁发5G临时牌照,不断推进下一代移动通讯技术的发展,为经济增长带来新的动力,也将为日常生活带来新的变革。The temporary 5G licenses will be given out in several cities this year, and consumers will be able to use the first batch of 5G smartphones and tablet computers in the second half of 2019.5G临时牌照今年将在若干城市进行发放,消费者最快能在今年下半年拿到首批装载有5G技术的智能手机和平板电脑。Why 5G?为什么要发展5G?Major countries in the world are competing to be the leader in 5G — the next generation of wireless connectivity — which will enable faster speeds and low latency wireless broadband services. 5G networks will be ten times faster than 4G networks, which is critical not only for consumer experience, but also for new industries to develop more possibilities.当今世界各大国家都在竞相发展5G通讯技术——也就是下一代的无线通信标准,它将为无线信息传输带来更高的速度和极短的网络延迟。5G网络的速度预计将是4G网络的十倍以上,这不仅对消费者体验是一次质的飞跃,还将为新产业的发展提供更多可能性。The rising demand for technologically superior products has been a silver lining for the telecom industry in an otherwise tough environment. In this respect, the superfast 5G mobile networks will be of utmost necessity in managing the exponential growth of internet-connected devices, popularly known as Internet of Things (IoT). For self-driving cars, for example, a steady and superfast network is needed to ensure safe driving through communicating with other cars efficiently. 5G is a solution to make this happen.高科技产品的持续发展使通讯技术需要不断进行革新。因此,超高速5G移动网络将全面应用于基于互联网运行的设备,特别是当下正热的物联网(IoT)。例如,对于无人驾驶汽车来说,高速、稳定的网络能保障车辆间的互通互联,确保车辆安全运行,而5G网络便能满足这样的需求。While 3G wireless network enabled seamless internet connectivity to mobile phone. 4G standard helped companies which thrive on mobile connectivity. Notably, 5G wireless network is likely to boost high-tech artificial intelligence-based products significantly, which is set to be a trend in the future.如果说,3G网络技术确保移动电话能够进行无缝的网络连接,4G网络助力企业进行高速的信息传输,那么即将到来的5G技术,则将大力提升高科技人工智能产品的实际运用,这无疑将成为未来通讯的主流。VOCABULARYsilver lining: 一线希望utmost: adj. 极度的;最大的exponential: adj. 指数级的

英语中的语调单位

评价一个人的口语水平如何,大家都会想到“语音语调”,也就是Pronunciation and Intonation。前者是通过音标所记录的音素来确定每一个词的正确发音,不同的英语国家在很多词汇的发音上存在差异,但只要遵循同一类的发音规律,那么便不会存在原则上的问题。后者则是很多英语学习者的最困惑的地方:到底什么是语调,它如何能使我们的口语显得地道?语调语调简单讲就是“说话的腔调”,准确讲是一句话里“声调高低、抑扬轻重的配制和变化”。英语有五种基本语调:升调(↗)、降调(↙)、升降调(∧)、降升调(∨)以及平调(→)。一句话的意义不仅仅通过词义得以表达,还需要语调的协助,表示出说话者的态度和语气。如祈使句“Do not touch the pot.”、疑问句“Did you touch the pot?”和肯定句“You did not touch the pot.”除了语义上的差异,还展现出了完全不同的说话者态度,再来回味一下这三句话是怎么读的,就不难发现语调的重要性了。语调单位要充分理解语调这一概念,那么就要了解什么是“语调单位”(Intonation Unit)。语调单位又称作语调群,是语言中语调的基本单位。一个语调单位通常相当于一个意群,由一个重读音节和若干个非重读音节组成。每个语调单位中至少有一个是响亮音,最响亮的高峰音便是语调单位的核心(nucleus),一旦越过这个“高峰”,音调便开始变化。语调单位通常由几个词组成,而完整的语调单位由四个部分组成:调冠、调头、调核和调尾。讲到这里,不少人已经被这些生疏的概念吓跑了。但其实语调一点都不枯燥,它是一句话悦耳动听的基础,也是所谓“语感”的核心所在,蕴含着语言的“灵魂”。今天我们就将为大家带来微课Intonation Units of English,从基础入手,结合实例分析,感受英语语调的魅力。

如何介绍产品,以口红为例

小小一支口红,在女性心中的地位不输一只精美的包包,或是一件新潮的时装。口红的存在,让迷人的色彩驻足于唇齿之间,也让世人看见了人类爱美的天性是如何改变着整个世界:在一涂一抹之间,支撑的可是金额数以亿计的化妆品行业。口红并不是现代社会的产物。早在公元前5000年,苏美尔人便已开始使用带色的矿物和植物色素涂抹在脸颊和嘴唇上,以达到美容的目的。我国女性使用口红的历史也十分悠久,在唐朝,贵族妇女使用檀色注唇,这一化妆术沿用至后世的各个朝代。但说到现代口红的兴起,则仅仅是过去一百年中的事情。1915年,美国人Maurice Levy发明了世界上第一支金属管口红,小巧的外形和便携的特性为口红的流行奠定了基础。之后发生的事情,想必大家都能归纳出来:不同品牌、不同色号、不同质地的口红争奇斗艳,唇彩、唇釉、唇棒等不同口红形态也应运而生。然而,就是这么一支精致小巧的口红,蕴含着不少的学问。从使用角度来说,有打底、上色、卸妆等步骤;从挑选口红来说,除了选择自己心仪的品牌和种类,还要在色号上大动脑筋:什么颜色适合自己的肤色,什么颜色搭配什么类型的妆容、服饰、场合等等等等。因此尽管“网购”“代购”盛行,但挑选口红,消费者还是会到柜台进行试色,请教专柜小姐帮助自己选择。正因如此,化妆品柜台的服务员除了充分了解产品的特性,还需要具备专业的化妆能力,才能为顾客挑选最好的搭配方案,而口红便是其中非常关键的一环。今天的微课就将为大家介绍如何用英语介绍口红,从而扩展到如何介绍各类产品,以小见大,拓展语言的能力。

练习 | VOA慢速:特朗普同意暂停政府停摆三周

燕山大学 刘立军 编写 TRANSCRIPTU.S. President Donald Trump said that he has reached a deal with Congressional leaders to reopen the government for three weeks.The deal to end the 35-day partial government shutdown does not include Trump's demand of $5.7 billion to build a wall at the country's southern border with Mexico.But in his speech Friday, Trump said if talks on border security fail to produce a "powerful wall or steel barrier," he would shut down the government again on February 15 or declare a national emergency to build one.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats have repeatedly called for Trump to reopen the government before lawmakers negotiate the issue of border security.The announcement came as the effects of the longest shutdown in American history were spreading across the nation.In New York, airplanes were being delayed at least 90 minutes. The government reported that the delay was caused by a small increase in sick leave from air traffic controllers in centers in Florida and Washington, D.C. The workers are among the 800,000 federal employees who have not been getting paid during the shutdown.Officials added that many airport security screeners were not reporting to work because of financial stresses.At the Internal Revenue Service, less than half of the recalled workers reported to work. The Trump administration had called back workers to deal with the increase in tax filing activities.In a video message, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Christopher Wray, said he was about as angry as I've been in a long, long time. Wray called the shutdown "short-sighted" and "unfair."

练习 | VOA慢速:实现目标的方法

燕山大学 刘立军 编写 TRANSCRIPTFrom VOA Learning English, this is the Health and Lifestyle report.If you are like millions of people around the world, the New Year brings with it new goals.Perhaps you want to save money, lose weight or learn a new skill. You tell yourself, "This is the year I'm going to ... (fill in the blank)."But then you get busy.Your daily life - as wonderful as it can be - takes up all of your time. Before you know it, weeks, then months have gone by, and you are no closer to your goal.Time, as they say, waits for no one.Yet your goal remains important. And achieving a goal, no matter how small, feels good. In addition, when we do not work on our goals, we may end up feeling guilty or not successful.So, how can we find time to work on these larger life goals?Well, many websites address this issue, and they offer some of the same advice: If you want to achieve something, clearly identify it and write it down. Identify specific goalsAs you identify your goals, be specific. If a goal is too general, it may be hard to pursue, let alone achieve it.Let's say your goal is to get in better physical shape. That's a fine idea - but psychologists might say as a goal, it is too general. To make the goal more specific, you could sign up for a regular exercise class. So, whether you are dancing, doing yoga or kickboxing, you have a regular commitment every week. You could also say your goal is to lose a certain amount of weight in a certain amount of time. Write your goals downExperts say writing down your goal is a very important step. It gets the goal out of your brain and into the real world.Some psychologists suggest that writing a goal on paper is better than typing it on a device or saying it into your phone. Your brain receives information differently when it comes from handwriting. Writing things down seems to say to the brain, "I am important! Remember me!" Writing has another benefit: You can post your goal somewhere as a reminder. As you sit down at your computer or pour your morning coffee, your goal stares you in the face and asks, "What are you going to do about me today?" Tell a friendTelling someone your goal is also helpful.If someone else knows about your goals, you are held accountable for any progress or lack of progress. Your friend might ask, "So, how many pages of your novel have you written?" If you keep saying "none," you might feel badly. Now you feel a pressure to do it - the pressure of your friend's opinion of you. And that can be a big pressure! Many people do not want to let others down, especially friends and family. Break down BIG goals into small onesNot all goals are created equal. Some can be quite big. And for those bigger goals, experts suggest breaking them down into smaller ones.So, let's say you want to work for yourself. You love cooking. So, you decide to start your own company that supplies food for special events. Now, that is a very big goal. But it is made up of many smaller goals. So, identify them, write them down and set for yourself time limits.These suggestions all help to make your goals real. If you simply think about your goals, they can easily get lost in your brain - which, after all, has a lot to do in a day.Other experts remind us of another detail as we set our goals for the New Year: The goals may change. Or your life situation may change. Or you may change. So, it is a good idea to check in with yourself. Is this goal still what you want? Is your approach still working? If things are not proceeding forward, perhaps you need to change something.One expert, Ryder Carroll, helps people organize their life's goals by using a simple notebook. He suggests thinking about your goals not as a final destination, but rather as lighthouses guiding you along.It is the pursuit of your goals - not the reaching of them - that makes up the weeks, days and hours of our lives. So make sure to have fun along the way!And that's the Health and Lifestyle report. I'm Anna Matteo. And I'm Bryan Lynn.Adapted from http://www.kekenet.com/broadcast/201901/577782.shtml VOCABULARY1. end up: to find yourself in a place or situation that you did not intend or expect to be in 最终成为;最后处于。例如:If you go on like this you'll end up in prison. 如果你继续这样,早晚得进监狱。用法:[+ -ing 短语] I ended up doing all the work myself. 结果所有的活儿都是我一个人干了。[+ 形容词] If he carries on driving like that, he'll end up dead. 如果他继续这样开车,总有一天会把命都丢掉。2. address v.

第九届教学大赛翻译专业组特等奖计霄雯说课

说课点评:计老师说的是一堂口译课。在短短30分钟的准备时间里,计老师能理清教学思路,制定教学目标,确定教学方法和步骤,布置课后练习,同时将说课内容制作成PPT展示出来,这的确是一种综合素质的体现。计老师在分析了所提供的教学素材的特点之后,将本堂课定义为综合运用所学口译技能进行模拟真实口译场景的训练,将教学目标设置为三项:语言强化、口译技能综合训练和训练方法的讨论,并依此设计了90分钟的教学内容。计老师所制定的教学计划目的明确,各环节布局紧凑,教学活动安排得周到细致,重视与学生的互动。说课思路清晰,主题突出,表达流畅,展现出丰富的学识积累和教学掌控能力。从所介绍的授课内容和形式不难看出,计老师是一名对教学本质融会贯通、对教学充满激情和热爱的优秀的口译教师。参加说课比赛的选手往往会试图将过多的内容和方法“塞”进教学设计之中,而忽略了计划实施的可行性。计老师的设计虽然总体合理,但尚需思考如何充分照顾和回应学生现场的反应和需求,并在抓放之间找到平衡点。一项完善的教学计划应该展示教学内容和教学目标之间以及教学方法和教学材料之间的有机关联。如果计老师在阐述90分钟教学内容的时候能不时地呼应一下其所预设的三个教学目标,整个设计的关联性便会更加突显。点评专家:陈菁教授
