3D model of Mindy

>Model of future human scary
未来人类:爪形手双眼睑

A company has created a 3D model of a future human - and the result is truly horrifying.
近日,一家公司创造出一个未来人类的3D模型——结果着实吓人。

Dubbed "Mindy", the human of 2100 has a hunched back, caused by hours sitting in front of a computer monitor at the office and craning her neck to look at smartphones.
这位2100年的人类被称为"明迪",她因长时间坐在办公室的电脑显示器前、伸长脖子看智能手机而驼背。

Mindy's adaptations don't stop there.
明迪的改变不止于此。

Her skull has thickened, helping to protect her brain from radiofrequency radiation emitted from smartphones.
她的头骨变厚了,这有助于保护她的大脑免受智能手机发出的射频辐射。

Her brain has also shrunk, based on the recent scientific theory that a sedentary lifestyle is reducing human brain capacity.
她的大脑也在萎缩。根据近期的科学理论,久坐的生活方式正在降低人类的大脑容量。

Meanwhile, her hand has permanently molded into a claw-like grip and her elbow is bent to 90 degrees, due to sustained periods spent holding a smartphone.
与此同时,由于长时间握着智能手机,她的手已经永久性地变成了爪形手握状,肘部弯曲90度。

Mindy's final physical change is possibly her most outlandish - she has a second set of eyelids to filter out excessive light emitted from technology devices.
明迪最后的身体变化可能是最古怪之处——她长出了双眼睑,用来过滤科技设备发出的过多光线。

While the Mindy model is extreme, and designed to shock, it provides an interesting visual representation of a growing body of scientific research.
虽然明迪的这个模型颇为极端,且旨在警醒人类,但它从视觉上有趣地呈现出了科学研究中人类进化发展的样子。

>No beasts as pets in Russia
俄立法禁养猛兽当宠物

Crocodiles, bears, lions, apes, cobras and scorpions, as well as other large predators and poisonous creatures, are now the subject of a ban from being kept as pets in Russia, to safeguard the health of both "owner" and animal.
如今鳄鱼、熊、狮子、猿猴、眼镜蛇、蝎子以及其他大型食肉动物和有毒生物都被禁止在俄罗斯被当做宠物来饲养,目的是为了保护宠物主人和动物双方的健康。

The legislation doesn't mean that people will now be parted with their dangerous and vulnerable pets.
新法令并不意味着人们现在就要和危险脆弱的宠物"说再见"。

The ban comes into force on Jan 1, 2020, with all animals on the new schedule that had been purchased before that date to remain with their owners until they die.
这项禁令将于2020年1月1日生效,新法案涉及的所有动物,凡是在这一日期前购买的,都可以和主人相伴终生。

Famous Russian animal expert and veteran TV host Nikolay Drozdov has fully backed the ban, saying that keeping poisonous snakes and large predators at home is "unacceptable" as, sooner or later, it ends in a tragedy.
俄罗斯著名动物专家、资深电视主持人尼古拉•德罗兹多夫对这一禁令表示绝对支持,他说,在家养毒蛇和大型食肉动物"不可接受"而且迟早会酿成悲剧。

The inability to provide proper conditions and nutrition for the beasts also led to complaints from animal rights activists, and to public outrage.
宠物主人无法为野兽提供适当的生存条件和营养,也招来动物权利保护者的抱怨,还引发了公愤。

Such negligence also saw animals escaping from their owners, creating a threat to local populations.
此外,由于疏于看管,一些动物还从主人家中逃脱,对当地人的安全造成威胁。
