Best countries to visit

旅游竞争力西班牙居首


It has more than 3,000 miles of coastline, and no fewer than 48 UNESCO World Heritage sites. Now, Spain has been declared the best country in the world to visit. For the third year running, it slid in just above France in the Travel & Tourism Competitive Report by the World Economic Forum (WEF).  6park.com

西班牙的海岸线超3000英里,拥有至少48个联合国教科文组织世界遗产地。这个国家日前被宣布为全球最佳旅游目的地。西班牙已经连续第三年在世界经济论坛的《旅游竞争力报告》中领先法国。




Germany, Japan and the US rounded out the top five. The destinations are ranked by "travel readiness" at what the WEF calls a "tipping point" for the travel industry. The 90-strong criteria included infrastructure, safety and sustainable travel initiatives. Culture, accommodation and value for money were also taken into account. 6park.com

跻身前五的还有德国、日本和美国。世界经济论坛是依照旅游行业"临界点"的"旅游接待能力"来排名的,有包括基础设施、安全和可持续旅游策略等多达90条评判标准。文化、住宿和性价比也被考虑在内。

Payment system uses hands

亚马逊将推出'徒手'支付


Forget the titanium Apple Card - Amazon's latest payment method uses flesh and blood. The e-tailing giant's engineers are quietly testing scanners that can identify an individual human hand as a way to ring up a store purchase, with the goal of rolling them out at its Whole Foods supermarket chain in the coming months.  6park.com

苹果公司的Apple Card钛金卡可以收起来了,亚马逊的最新支付方式只要用户伸手就可以。这家电商巨头的工程师正在默默测试可以辨识手部的扫描仪用来结账,打算几个月后在旗下的全食连锁超市推出。




The system, code-named "Orville," will allow customers with Amazon Prime accounts to scan their hands at the store and link them to their credit or debit card. It's accurate to within one ten-thousandth of 1%, the source said.  6park.com

这套系统代号为"奥维尔",亚马逊Prime会员顾客可以在门店通过该系统扫描自己的手,并将信息与信用卡或借记卡绑定。据消息人士透露,这一系统已精准到出错率不到百万分之一。 6park.com

While a regular card transaction typically takes between three and four seconds, Amazon's new technology can process the charge in less than 300 milliseconds, a person familiar with the project said. If successful, the technology could help encourage consumers to spend more when they visit Whole Foods. 6park.com

一位知情人士表示,普通的银行卡交易通常需要3至4秒的时间,而亚马逊的新技术可以在不到300毫秒的时间内处理完交易。如果能成功的话,这项技术可以鼓励消费者在全食超市购物时多花钱。

MPs reject election call

英议会否决大选后休会


British lawmakers on Monday night voted to reject Prime Minister Boris Johnson's second bid for a snap general election again. It is one of the parliament's last acts before being suspended on Monday evening for five weeks, per the order of Johnson.  6park.com

9日晚,英国议会否决了首相鲍里斯?约翰逊再度提出的提前大选的动议。这是议会在休会前最后时刻作出的决议之一。按照约翰逊的命令,自9日晚开始,议会正式进入持续五周的休会。




It is the first time in more than 70 years a British government has suspended parliament when faced with opposition. "This government will press on withnegotiating a deal, while preparing to leave without one," Johnson said after the result of the vote on an early election.  6park.com

"I will go to that crucial summit on Oct 17 and no matter how many devices this parliament invents to tie my hands, I will strive to get an agreement in the national interest...This government will not delay Brexit any further." The Queen has granted royal assent to the law which requires the prime minister to seek a Brexit extension, preventing a no-deal withdrawal. 6park.com

我将参加10月17日举行的欧盟峰会,无论议会想出多少办法束缚我的手脚,我都会力争达成一项符合国家利益的协议……本届政府不会再推迟脱欧。"一项要求首相寻求推迟脱欧从而避免无协议脱欧的法案近日已获女王批准并成为法律。
