>Ruby chocolate launched
粉红巧克力将登陆澳洲
A brand new variety of chocolate is set to hit Australian shores and it comes in a pretty pink hue. Ruby chocolate is the world's "fourth chocolate". Ruby chocolate derives its unique color from the ruby cocoa bean, which is grown in Ecuador, Brazil and the Ivory Coast. Powder extracted from the bean during processing is used to color the chocolate and its creators state no berries or colors have been added in the making. The chocolate's taste is described as "sweet yet sour" with "little to none" of the cocoa flavor traditionally associated with other varieties of chocolate. The innovation, by Barry Callebaut AG, the world's largest cocoa processor, comes after about a decade of development.

>Hand dryers spread bacteria
烘手机卫生程度输纸巾
Jet hand dryers spread dangerous bacteria around bathrooms and are significantly less hygienic than traditional paper towels, scientists have found. An international study established that modern dryers create an aerosol effect, blasting E. Coli (大肠杆菌) as well as traces of feces and the bacteria responsible for septicaemia (败血症) onto surfaces. By contrast, paper towels absorb the bugs better, preventing other people from becoming exposed to them. Published in the Journal of Hospital Infection, the study, the largest of its kind, was partly carried out at Leeds General Infirmary. "The problem starts because some people do not wash their hands properly," said Mark Wilcox, who led the study at the University of Leeds. "When people use a jet air dryer, the microbes get blown off and spread around the toilet room. If people touch those surfaces, they risk becoming contaminated by bacteria or viruses.
科研人员发现,喷气式烘手机会在卫生间内传播危险的细菌,卫生程度远低于传统的纸巾。一项国际研究证实,现代烘手机会产生一种雾化效果,将大肠杆菌、微量排泄物和引发败血症的细菌吹到物品表面上。相比之下,纸巾能更好地吸收细菌,避免其他人受到污染。该研究发表在《医院感染杂志》上,是同类研究中规模最大的,部分研究工作是在利兹综合医院进行的。研究带头人、利兹大学的马克•威尔科克斯教授说:"这一问题是因为有些人不好好洗手引起的。当人们使用喷气式烘手机时,微生物被吹走,散落到卫生间各处。如果人们接触这些东西的表面,就可能会被细菌或病毒污染。"

>Burberry stops burning stock
博柏利不再焚毁滞销货
Britain's Burberry will no longer burn unsold luxury goods to protect its brand after an admission that it destroyed 28.6 million pounds worth of stock last year sparked a furore over waste in the fashion industry. Burberry also said it would no longer use real fur, such as mink and racoon, in another step towards improving its social and environmental credentials, which was immediately welcomed by animal rights campaigners. It is also working with the sustainable luxury company Elvis & Kresse to transform 120 tons of leather offcuts into new products over the next five years. Exane BNP Paribas analyst Luca Solca said Burberry's announcement could put pressure on other luxury names to be more transparent about how they handle unsold goods.
英国公司博柏利日前表示,将不再为保护品牌而对未售出的奢侈商品做焚毁处理。此前,该公司承认去年销毁价值2860万英镑的库存,引发公众对时尚产业废弃物的愤怒。博柏利还表示将不再使用貂皮、浣熊毛皮等真皮毛,这是进一步提升该公司社会和环境形象的另一举措,此举立刻受到了动物权益保护人士的欢迎。博柏利还与可持续奢侈品企业埃尔维斯与克莱斯合作,计划今后5年将120吨皮革边角料转化成新产品。巴黎银行证券部分析师卢卡•索尔卡称,博柏利的声明或将给其他奢侈品牌带来压力,促使它们更透明地公开未售出商品的处理方式。
