>Spanish Steps' sitting ban
罗马城地标'禁坐'引争议

Rome has banned tourists from sitting on its famous Spanish Steps in a move denounced as "Fascist" by critics.
近日,罗马市著名的西班牙台阶实施游客"禁坐令",此举被批评人士抨击为"法西斯主义"。

The city has previously barred visitors from eating or drinking on the marble staircase but has now extended the rule to include sitting.
此前,罗马已对游客在大理石台阶上吃喝发布禁令,现在坐在上面休息也成为禁令中的一项。

Police began patrolling the 18th-century marble steps, blowing whistles at those sitting down.
警方近日开始在这些建于18世纪的大理石台阶上巡逻,向那些坐在台阶上的人吹哨发出警告。

The monument, a UNESCO world heritage site, has long been the ideal resting spot for tired visitors.
西班牙台阶是联合国教科文组织评出的世界遗产地,一直是疲惫游客理想的休息场所。

The landmark was made famous in the US by the 1953 film "Roman Holiday" starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.
这处标志性建筑因1953年奥黛丽•赫本和格里高利•派克主演的影片《罗马假日》而在美国名声大噪。

Visitors who defy the ban can be fined 250 euros, which increases to 400 euros if they have dirtied or damaged the stone staircase.
违反禁令的游客将被罚款250欧元(约合人民币1977元)。如果游客弄脏或损坏了石阶,罚款将增至400欧元(约合人民币3160元)。

Disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein was found dead on Saturday after an apparent suicide in the New York jail cell where he was being held without bail on sex-trafficking charges, and a source said he was not on suicide watch at the time of his death.
声名狼藉的金融家杰弗里•爱泼斯坦10日被发现在美国纽约一座监狱内死亡,初步推断死因是自杀。爱泼斯坦因涉嫌性交易犯罪遭拘禁,不得保释。有消息来源透露,爱泼斯坦死亡时未被置于防自杀监控之下。

Epstein, 66, was found unresponsive in his cell and transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
狱警发现66岁的爱泼斯坦在囚室内没有反应,将他送至医院,医院宣告他已死亡。

Epstein, who was arrested on July 6, had pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking involving dozens of underage girls from 2002 to 2005.
爱泼斯坦7月6日被捕,对于在2002年至2005年间涉嫌组织数十名未成年少女进行性交易的指控,他拒不认罪。

Last month, Epstein was found unconscious on the floor of his jail cell with marks on his neck, according to media reports, and officials were investigating that incident as a possible suicide or assault.
据媒体报道,上月,爱泼斯坦曾在牢房里被发现昏迷不醒,且颈部受伤,执法人员正在调查这是否是一起自杀或袭击事件。

Despite that, Epstein had been taken off suicide watch, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters. He was on suicide watch as late as Thursday, and was in a cell by himself when his body was found, the source said.
消息人士向路透社透露,在这种情况下,对爱泼斯坦的防自杀监控竟被撤掉,爱泼斯坦被发现死亡时囚室里没有其他人。对爱泼斯坦的防自杀监控8月8日结束。

The FBI and the Department of Justice's Inspector General were opening investigations.
美国联邦调查局和司法部检察长已对这一事件展开调查。
