>Ice cream raises concern
'故宫雪糕'引发酒驾担忧
An ice cream containing yellow rice wine in its ingredients is raising concerns over the possibility of drunken driving by consumers. The ice cream is a product of the Cultural Service Center of Beijing Palace Museum. The ice cream's packaging is in yellow – the color for the emperor in ancient China – with a label saying "Bestowed by His Majesty" on the package. Instructions read "No more than 6 grams of yellow rice wine is contained in each ice cream and a driver should eat only one, then sit behind the wheel for 10 to 15 minutes after ingesting to avoid being caught in a drunken driving test." Some who tried it said the ice cream has a distinct alcohol flavor. This is not the first time the Palace Museum rolled out innovative theme products. A series of themed cultural souvenirs, such as calendars and watches, have won the hearts of consumers in recent years.
一款由北京故宫文化服务中心出品的配料中含有黄酒的雪糕引发了消费者关于是否会测出酒驾的担忧。这款雪糕的外包装为黄色,这是中国古代帝王的颜色,上有"圣上亲赐"四个字。包装上的产品说明写有:"本品每支含有不足6克黄酒,驾车者每次仅能享用一支。并请在品尝后十到十五分钟后开车,以免影响检测结果。"一些尝试过这款雪糕的消费者表示,吃起来的确有明显的酒味。这已不是故宫第一次推出创新主题产品,近年来,其推出的日历、手表等一系列主题文化纪念品受到消费者的欢迎。

>SpaceX names moon tourist
SpaceX首位环月乘客揭晓
Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa signed with SpaceX to fly around the moon on the company's next generation rocket, CEO Elon Musk announced on Monday. Maezawa will attempt to be the first to return to the moon in nearly half a century, launching aboard a Big Falcon Rocket, which SpaceX is developing. One of the richest people in Japan, Maezawa made his fortune as the founder of online retailers Start Today and Zozotown. "Ever since I was a kid, I have loved the moon," Maezawa said after the announcement. "In 2023, as the host, I would like to invite 6 to 8 artists from around the world to join me on this mission to the Moon," he added. Only two dozen people have ever been to the moon, with the final Apollo mission in 1972 marking the last time a human visited the moon.

>Macron's advice draws fire
马克龙求职建议惹众怒
The French president Emmanuel Macron was facing fresh criticism after telling an aspiring gardener that he could easily find a job if he would simply start looking in high-demand sectors like restaurants or construction. Macron was talking with the young man at the Elysee Palace on Saturday. "I'm 25 years old, I send resumes and cover letters, they don't lead to anything," he told the president. "If you're willing and motivated, in hotels, cafes and restaurants, construction, there's not a single place I go where they don't say they're looking for people." Macron replied. He suggested going to the Montparnasse neighborhood, an area full of cafes and restaurants, and assured him he would easily find work. "If I crossed the street I'd find you one," he said. Critics quickly took to Twitter to deride the advice from the president. "Completely disconnected from the reality of the French," one user wrote. "How can someone show that much contempt, lack of empathy and ignorance in just 30 seconds?" Christophe Castaner, the head of Macron's Republic on the Move party, rejected accusations that Macron had "poorly treated the unemployed". "Is what the president said false? If you go to the Montparnasse area, you won't find that they need workers?" he asked in a television interview Sunday.
法国总统马克龙近日面临新的批评,此前他向一名胸怀抱负的园丁表示,他可以在餐馆或建筑等需要大量劳动力的行业轻松找到工作。马克龙15日在爱丽舍宫与这名青年交谈。该男子告诉马克龙:"我今年25岁了。我发送了简历和求职信,但是没有收到任何回应。"马克龙回答说:"如果你有意愿且积极性很高,去酒店、咖啡馆、餐厅和建筑行业找找。我去过的这类地方,没有哪里会说不想招人。"马克龙建议他去咖啡馆和餐厅林立的蒙帕纳斯区试试,并保证他能轻松找到工作。他说:"我只要穿过马路就能给你找份工作。"马克龙的这番建议很快在推特上引发批评人士的嘲弄。一名用户写道:"完全不知疾苦。一个人怎么能在短短30秒内表现出那么多的蔑视、缺乏同理心以及无知呢?"马克龙所在的共和国前进党的党首克里斯托夫•卡斯塔内16日接受电视采访时否认"马克龙对失业者很差劲"的指责,并表示:"总统说错了吗?如果你去蒙帕纳斯区走走,你不会发现他们很需要雇员吗?"

>MI5 opens door to interns
英军情五处招募实习生
For many students, work experience involves little more than making tea, photocopying and answering telephones. Some, however, could soon add foiling terror attacks and exposing spies to the list. MI5, the UK's domestic intelligence agency, has started to offer 11-week paid internships at its London headquarters. The scheme is open to undergraduate students in the penultimate year of science, technology, engineering or mathematics degrees. Successful candidates will be paid about 485 pounds a week. According to MI5, interns will rotate through four "technical" areas of the agency, where IT, coding and data analysis skills are required. The agency says its most sought-after placements are likely to be in "covert technical operations" - hacking terrorists' electronic equipment. "This is a new initiative and we're investing in our future," MI5 says on its website. "Your work could make a direct impact on how we protect national security, and those who impress will be offered a permanent role upon graduation."
对许多学生而言,工作经历不过是倒茶、复印和接电话。然而,部分人或许很快有望在工作经历里加入"挫败恐怖袭击阴谋"、"曝光间谍"之类的内容。英国国内情报机构军情五处近日开始为其伦敦总部招募带薪实习生,实习时间为11周。这一计划面向科学、技术、工程或数学专业的大三本科生。应聘成功者的周薪约为485英镑(约合4352元人民币)。军情五处表示,实习生将轮流在军情五处四个"技术"领域工作,须具备信息技术、编码和数据分析等技能。最令人向往的实习职位可能是参与所谓"隐秘技术行动",即入侵恐怖分子的电子设备。军情五处在其网站上表示:"这是一项新举措,我们在为未来投资。你的工作将直接影响我们保卫国家安全的方式,表现出众的人会在毕业时获得永久职位。"
