>Parenthood makes you happier
子女离巢后父母更幸福
Having children will make you happier than staying childless, according to a new study, but not until later in life, when they have flown the nest.
一项研究表明,有孩子的家庭比丁克家庭更加幸福,但这里指的是孩子都已长大离巢的家庭。
A team of researchers at Heidelberg University in Germany found that parents tend to be happier than non-parents in old age, but this only holds true if their kids have moved out.
德国海德堡大学的一组研究人员发现,年龄渐长后,有孩子的夫妻比没有孩子的夫妻更加幸福,但这只有在孩子搬出去的情况下才成立。
Scientists asked 55,000 people aged 50 and over from 16 European countries about their mental well-being, and results suggest "the positive aspects of parenthood dominate when getting older."
科学家对来自16个欧洲国家的5.5万名50岁及以上的居民进行了调查,询问他们的心理健康状况,结果显示:年龄渐长后,亲子关系的积极方面更多地显现出来。
One of the biggest factors is that children become a form of social support, and the researchers point out that social support networks are associated with greater happiness and less loneliness and can act as a buffer against stressful events.
其中一个最大的因素是,孩子成为了父母的一种社会支持。研究人员指出,社会支持关系网会提高幸福感,减少孤独感,面临压力时可以作为缓冲剂。
However, children who still live at home are shown to have a negative effect on well-being.
然而调查也显示,那些子女仍未离巢的父母的幸福感大打折扣。

老妇厨房惊现失传名画
An early Renaissance masterpiece by the Florentine master Giovanni Cimabue has been discovered in an old lady's kitchen in a town near Paris, art experts said Monday.

研究早期绘画大师的专家图尔昆称,这幅名为《受嘲弄的基督》的画作为13世纪艺术家、乔托的师傅契马布埃创作,估价在400-600万欧元之间。
The work was owned by an old lady in the northern French town of Compiegne, who had it hanging between her kitchen and her sitting room. It was directly above a hotplate for cooking food.
名画的所有者是法国北部小镇康比涅的一位老妇,她将画挂在厨房与客厅之间用于做饭的电炉的正上方。
The painting's elderly owner thought it was just a rather old religious icon when she took it to her local auctioneers to be valued.
老妇将这幅法国名画拿到当地拍卖商那估价时还以为这只是一幅古老的宗教作品。
It will now go under the hammer at an auction house in Senlis, north of Paris, on Oct 27.
这幅画将于10月27日在巴黎北部桑利的一家拍卖行竞拍。

25日,国际货币基金组织(IMF)证实保加利亚经济学家克里斯塔利娜•格奥尔基耶娃将成为该机构的新任总裁。格奥尔基耶娃表示,除了长期目标外,她的当务之急是应对危机出现的风险。
Georgieva, 66, who succeeds France's Christine Lagarde to begin her five-year term on Oct 1, is the first person from an emerging-market economy to lead the IMF since its inception in 1944, the fund's executive board said in a statement.
IMF执行董事会在一份声明中称,66岁的格奥尔基耶娃将从10月1日起正式接替法国人拉加德成为IMF总裁,任期5年,她是IMF自1944年成立以来首位来自新兴市场经济体的领导人。
Georgieva said in a statement that it was a "huge responsibility" to be at the helm of the IMF at a time when global economic growth continues to disappoint, trade tensions persist, and debt is at historically high levels.
格奥尔基耶娃在声明中称,在当前全球经济增长乏力、贸易摩擦持续、债务达到历史高位的大环境下,担任IMF总裁这一职位意味着"巨大的责任"。
"Our immediate priority is to help countries minimize the risk of crises and be ready to cope with downturns. Yet, we should not lose sight of our long-term objective – to support sound monetary, fiscal and structural policies to build stronger economies and improve people's lives," Georgieva said.
格奥尔基耶娃说:"当务之急是帮助成员国降低危机出现的风险和应对经济下行趋势。但我们也不能忘了长远目标,即通过支持合理的货币、财政以及结构性政策来促进经济发展,提高人民生活水平。"
