>Working parents struggle
疫情之下上班族育儿难

A staggering 25 percent of working parents are considering giving up their jobs, or cutting down their hours, so they can better look after their offspring during the novel coronavirus lockdown, according to a new study.
新研究显示,多达25%的上班族父母正在考虑放弃工作或削减工时,以便在新冠病毒封锁期间更好地照顾自己的子女。

Researchers from Trinity McQueen market research company found 69 percent of working parents in the UK have struggled to balance their working lives with the demands of children who are spending long hours at home and who often need home schooling.
市场研究公司Trinity McQueen的研究人员发现,英国69%的上班族父母努力平衡自己的工作和孩子的需求,如今孩子在家呆的时间很长,而且经常需要在家上课。

Many parents said they could not find alternative childcare arrangements during the government-mandated lockdown aimed at restricting people-to-people contact and limiting the spread of COVID-19 disease.
许多父母表示,政府为了限制人与人间的接触、遏制新冠肺炎传播实施强制性封锁期间,他们找不到其他的育儿安排。

Simpson Millar, lawyers specializing in education issues, said the findings show a feared second wave of infections and a return to a full lockdown could have a disastrous effect on families that are already struggling to cope.
以教育问题见长的律师辛普森·米拉尔表示,调查结果显示,令人担心的第二波感染和全面封锁可能会给那些本已不堪重负的家庭带来灾难性的影响。

Many parents feel alone because they have had little support from schools.
许多家长因为得不到学校的支持而感到孤独。

About 45 percent of the 1,001 parents who took part in the survey told researchers their mental health had been impacted by having their children at home for such a prolonged period.
1001名参与这项调查的家长中约有45%的人向研究者表示,孩子长期在家已令他们的心理健康受到影响。

Of those parents, 871 held down jobs.

>Site of Van Gogh' last painting
梵高绝笔作创作地确定

A postcard has led experts to identify the place where Vincent van Gogh likely painted his final masterpiece.
专家们通过一张明信片确定了文森特·梵高绝笔杰作可能的创作地点。

Wouter van der Veen, the scientific director of the Institut van Gogh, found a postcard dating from 1900 to 1910 showing tree trunks and roots growing on a hillside - this, he thought, showed a similar scene to that in Van Gogh's "Tree Roots."
梵高研究所的科学主任伍特尔·范·德·维恩发现了一张可以追溯到1900年到1910年的明信片,这张明信片上的场景是一个山坡上生长的树干和树根,他认为,这些都与梵高的作品《树根》中所绘景物相似。

The fanciful and bright painting, an oil on canvas that was never fully completed, is thought to be the painter's last work before he died on July 29, 1890.
这幅奇特而明亮的帆布油画并未完成,被认为是画家1890年7月29日去世前的最后一幅作品。

After submitting his theory to two researchers at the Van Gogh Museum and a vegetation specialist, Van der Veen got the good news.
范·德·维恩把他的理论提交给梵高博物馆的两位研究人员和一位植被专家之后,得到了好消息。

Experts concluded it was "highly plausible" the painting's location - 150 meters from the Auberge Ravoux, the inn in Auvers-sur-Oise where Van Gogh spent the final 70 days of his life - had been discovered.
专家们得出结论,这里"非常有可能"是《树根》所描绘的地点,此处距离梵高在奥维尔的居所拉乌客栈150米,梵高在拉乌客栈度过了他生命的最后70天。
