Best countries to visit


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


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

Payment system uses hands


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

MPs reject election call


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


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

这是70多年来,英国政府首次不顾多方反对叫停议会。约翰逊在提前大选动议的表决结果出炉后表示:"本届政府将推进脱欧协议的谈判,同时也为无协议脱欧做准备。 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
