>Malaysia bets on durian
大马榴莲盯上中国市场
The stinky, spiky durian is set to become Malaysia's next major export as the Southeast Asian nation rushes to develop thousands of acres to cash in on unprecedented demand for the fruit from China. Even property tycoons and companies in palm oil, Malaysia's biggest agricultural export, are making forays into the durian business. China's durian imports rose 15% last year to nearly 350,000 tons worth $510 million, according to the United Nations' trade database. Chinese pay top dollar for Malaysia's "Musang King" variety of durian because of its creamy texture and bitter-sweet taste. Prices of the variety, now planted all over the country, have nearly quadrupled in the last five years.
闻起来有点臭、满身带刺的榴莲将成为马来西亚的下一个主要出口产品,这个东南亚国家急于在数千英亩土地上种植榴莲,从中国对榴莲前所未有的旺盛需求中赚取利润。就连房地产大亨和该国第一大出口农产品棕榈油的制造商也纷纷进军榴莲产业。根据联合国的贸易数据库,去年中国的榴莲进口量增长了15%,达到近35万吨,价值5.1亿美元。中国人高价购买马来西亚的"猫山王"榴莲,这个品种的榴莲口感细腻、甜味里带着微苦。现在马来西亚全国各地均有种植"猫山王",过去5年间这个品种的价格翻了近两番。

>Modric wins Ballon d'Or
莫德里奇获2018金球奖
Midfielder Luka Modric, playing for Real Madrid, opened a new chapter in Ballon d'Or (Golden Ball) history as he became the first Croatian to claim the award on Monday. It was the latest recognition for his achievement and contribution throughout the year, following the UEFA Men's Player of the Year Award and the Best FIFA Men's Player. Modric ended the past decade dominated by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the Ballon d'Or, as the two superstars claimed it five times apiece. The Croatian also had terminated Ronaldo and Messi's 10-year duopoly in the FIFA award in September. Modric spearheaded Croatia into the World Cup final for the first time in history in Russia, winning the tournament's Golden Ball himself. On the club side, the playmaker won the third straight UEFA Champions League title with Real Madrid. "As a kid we all have dreams. My dream was to play for a big club and win important trophies," the 33-year-old Modric said. "The Ballon d'Or was more than just a dream for me and it is really an honor and a privilege to hold this trophy."
3日,效力于皇家马德里队的中场球员卢卡•莫德里奇成为首位获得金球奖的克罗地亚人,开启金球奖历史的新篇章。这是对莫德里奇今年取得的成绩和做出的贡献的最新认可,此前他已当选欧足联年度最佳男球员和国际足联(FIFA)最佳男球员。莫德里奇打破了梅西和C罗对金球奖长达10年的垄断,期间这两名超级球星各获5次金球奖。莫德里奇还在9月终结了梅西和C罗对FIFA最佳男球员的10年垄断。在俄罗斯世界杯上,莫德里奇带领克罗地亚队史上首次打入决赛,并夺得"世界杯金球奖"。俱乐部方面,他随皇马实现欧冠三连冠。现年33岁的莫德里奇说:"每个人小时候都有梦想,我的梦想就是为豪门俱乐部效力并赢得重要奖项。金球奖更是我梦寐以求的奖项,赢得这座奖杯,我感到万分荣幸。"

美警方网上'通缉'寻失主
A man accidentally dropped an engagement ring through a Times Square sidewalk grate after proposing to his girlfriend. On Saturday, the New York Police Department put out a Twitter bulletin seeking the woeful groom. "WANTED for dropping his fiancee's ring in Times Square! She said yes - but he was so excited that he dropped the ring in a grate," the NYPD News tweeted Saturday. " ... Officers rescued it & would like to return it to the happy couple." They posted video of the couple that shows the man peering down in to the grate. They also posted multiple photos of the ring. The next day, the NYPD announced that, with the help of social sleuths assisting in the multinational probe, it had found the owners, who are from the UK. "We would like to thank everyone who shared this story!" the department tweeted. "The happy couple is back in their home country, but thanks to your retweets they heard we were looking for them! We're making arrangements to get them their ring back. Congratulations!"

>Paris riots worst in 50 yrs
法国巴黎现大规模骚乱
French President Emmanuel Macron is seeking ways to defuse nationwide protests over high living costs that led to widespread rioting in Paris over the weekend. The "yellow vest" revolt caught Macron unawares when it erupted on Nov 17 and poses a formidable challenge to the 40-year-old as he tries to counter a plunge in popularity over his economic reforms, which are seen as favoring the wealthy. Riot police were overrun over the weekend as protesters wrought havoc in Paris's fanciest neighborhoods, torching cars, looting boutiques and smashing up luxury private homes and cafes in the worst disturbances the capital has seen since 1968. More than 100 people were injured and 412 have been arrested. The core demand of the "yellow vest" movement is a freeze on further planned fuel tax increases and measures to bolster spending power. But they have also called for Macron to go. The French government will suspend a fuel tax rise which were due in January, local media reported on Tuesday.
上周末,法国民众对高昂生活成本的全国性抗议在巴黎演变成大范围骚乱,法国总统马克龙正寻求平息途径。现年40岁的马克龙正在试图挽救其因经济改革而急速下跌的支持率,11月17日爆发的"黄背心"抗议活动令其措手不及,面临巨大挑战。马克龙的改革举措被指偏袒富人。周末,抗议者们给首都巴黎最繁华的街区造成严重破坏,他们烧毁汽车,抢劫精品店,打砸豪华民宅以及咖啡馆,政府不得不出动大量防暴警察,这是巴黎自1968年以来爆发的最严重骚乱,骚乱导致逾100人受伤,412人被捕。"黄背心"运动的核心诉求是要求政府冻结进一步提高燃油税的计划,并推出提振消费力的举措。但他们也呼吁马克龙辞职。据当地媒体4日报道,法国政府将暂停一项原定于1月实施的提高燃油税的计划。
