>£4B spent for stockpiling
英国人花40亿英镑囤货

Britons have spent £4 billion stockpiling goods in preparation for a possible no-deal Brexit, new research suggests.
最新研究显示,为应对可能到来的无协议脱欧,英国人已花费40亿英镑(约合人民币338亿元)囤积商品。

One in five people are already hoarding food, drinks and medicine, spending an extra £380 each, according to a survey by the finance provider Premium Credit.
金融服务提供商优质信贷公司的一项调查显示,1/5的英国人已经在囤积食品、饮料和药品,每人额外花费了380英镑(约合人民币3217元)。

The survey found that about 800,000 people have spent more than £1,000 building up stockpiles before the Oct 31 Brexit deadline.
调查发现,约有80万人在囤积物资方面花费超过1000英镑。英国脱欧最后期限是今年10月31日。

If the UK leaves with no deal, businesses predict there will be short-term supply problems, which the government says it is mitigating.
如果英国无协议脱欧,企业预计将出现短期供应问题,而政府表示正在想办法缓解这一问题。

The super-rich are also importing more luxury cars ahead of the Brexit deadline to avoid tariffs that might be introduced following a hard Brexit.
超级富豪也正赶在英国脱欧最后期限之前进口更多豪华汽车,以避免"硬脱欧"后可能产生的关税。

More than 3,800 luxury cars were imported in the past year, a 16% increase on the previous 12 months.
过去一年英国进口了3800多辆豪华汽车,较之前一年增长了16%。

>'2nd-hand drinking' harmful
'二手酒'危害堪比二手烟

It's easy to imagine how second-hand smoke can impact an innocent bystander.
很容易想象,二手烟会影响无辜的旁人。

But it's not the only habit that can affect others; "second-hand drinking" is a thing, too.
但二手烟并非唯一会影响别人的习惯,"二手酒"也会。

A study in the US has placed its effects on par with second-hand smoking.
美国一项研究认为,二手酒所产生的影响堪比二手烟。

Using US national survey data from 2015, research has found that each year, one in five American adults - which is an estimated 53 million people - experience harm because of someone else's drinking.
通过2015年美国全国调查数据,研究发现美国每年有1/5的成年人(约5300万人),因他人饮酒而受到伤害。

These harms include things like threats or harassment, which was the most commonly cited, as well as physical aggression, drunk driving, and even financial or family problems.
这些伤害包括最常提及的威胁和骚扰,以及身体攻击、酒驾,甚至还涉及财政或家庭问题。

Young people under the age of 25 were mostly on the receiving end.
不到25岁的年轻人大多是二手酒的受害者。

For men, this harm was usually from a stranger and resulted in ruined property, or physical aggression.
对男性来说,这种伤害通常来自陌生人,会造成财产损失或身体攻击。

But for women, the drinker tended to be a family member, causing financial issues or problems in the house.
但对女性来说,醉酒者往往是某个家庭成员,由此会导致经济问题或家庭问题。

>Huawei gets new extension
美再延期执行华为禁令

The US Department of Commerce announced Monday that it will extend a temporary license loosening restrictions on business deals with Chinese tech giant Huawei for another 90 days.
美国商务部19日宣布,将把放宽与中国科技巨头华为进行商业交易限制的"临时许可证"再次延长90天。

The reprieve came after the Department of Commerce put Huawei and its 68 affiliates on an Entity List in May.
今年5月,美国商务部将华为及其68家关联企业列入"实体清单"。

The department on May 20 issued a 90-day temporary license to ease off part of the restrictions.
5月20日,美国商务部向华为发放90天的临时许可证,以减缓部分限制。

The temporary easing came amid concerns that Huawei's customers in the US will suffer without access to Huawei's services.
此次临时放宽限制是因为美国担心本土的华为用户因无法使用华为的服务而遭受损失。

In response, Huawei said in a statement later on Monday that "The extension of the Temporary General License does not change the fact that Huawei has been treated unjustly."
当天晚些时候,华为发表声明回应此事称,临时一般许可证的延期并没有改变华为被不公正对待的事实。

The company called on the US government to put an end to this unjust treatment and remove Huawei from the Entity List.
华为呼吁美国政府停止对华为的不公正对待,将华为移出实体清单。
