>Suga elected president of LDP
菅义伟当选自民党总裁
Yoshihide Suga, 71, became the 26th president of Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party on Monday, winning 377 votes.
9月14日,71岁的菅义伟以377票当选日本执政党自民党的第26任总裁。
Suga is set to be elected as Japan's 99th president at an extraordinary Diet session on Wednesday.
他将在9月16日的国会特别会议上出任第99任日本首相。
His rivals, Shigeru Ishiba, a former defense minister, got 68 votes and Fumio Kishida, a former foreign minister, got 89.
另外两名候选人,前防务大臣石破茂和前外交大臣岸田文雄分别获得68票和89票。
Suga is virtually assured of becoming the next prime minister due to the LDP's dominance in both chambers of Japan's bicameral parliament.
由于自民党在国会两院中均占据绝对优势,因此菅义伟当选下一任首相已无悬念。
The election was triggered by Shinzo Abe's abrupt announcement late last month he was stepping down due to a recurrent health issue which also brought his first tenure as prime minister to an abrupt end in 2007.
上月底安倍晋三因旧疾复发突然宣布将辞去首相一职,因此自民党举行了这次党首选举。2007年,安倍也是因健康原因不得不突然结束了自己的第一任首相任期。
Suga, who has been one of Abe's closest confidants for almost eight years, has promised to continue Abe's economic policies and approach to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.
菅义伟曾任安倍亲密助手长达8年,他承诺将延续安倍的经济政策和应对新冠肺炎疫情的方法。

Another bidder for the wildly popular social media platform, Oracle, is gaining the upper hand as its negotiations for TikTok's US operations have intensified in recent days, Bloomberg reported.
彭博社援引知情人士的消息称,竞购这家广受欢迎的社交媒体平台的另一家公司——甲骨文近日正在加紧有关TikTok美国业务的谈判,该公司在竞购事宜上正取得优势。
US President Donald Trump set a deadline last month for TikTok to be sold to a US company by Sept 20 or face a ban.
美国总统特朗普上月设定9月20日为最后期限,要求字节跳动在这之前将TikTok出售给美国公司,否则该平台将遭禁用。

>Time cover marks 200,000 deaths
'时代'周刊哀叹'美式失败'
Time magazine's latest cover will mark an approaching milestone in the coronavirus pandemic - 200,000 related deaths in the US - with the headline "An American Failure" and an illustration within a black border for only the second time in its history.
《时代》杂志的最新一期封面将纪念新冠疫情一个即将到来的里程碑:美国新冠死亡病例数即将达到20万。封面标题为"美国式失败",封面图片使用了黑色边框,这是该杂志历史上第二次使用黑色边框封面。
It also used a black border on an illustration after the 9/11 terror attacks.
在9•11恐怖袭击事件发生后,《时代》杂志在封面图中也使用了黑色边框。
The cover is made up of dates and death counts listed back to back, covering most of the page.
封面背景是密密麻麻的日期与死亡人数,覆盖了大部分页面。
"A failure of leadership at many levels and across parties; a distrust of scientists, the media and expertise in general; and deeply ingrained cultural attitudes about individuality and how we value human lives have all combined to result in a horrifically inadequate pandemic response," the Time cover story reads. "COVID-19 has weakened the US and exposed the systemic fractures in the country, and the gulf between what this nation promises its citizens and what it actually delivers."
封面故事中写道:"多层面、跨党派的领导力失败;对科学、媒体和专业性的普遍不信任;以及对个性、对我们如何衡量生命价值的根深蒂固的文化态度,这些因素结合在一起最终导致了可怕的、不恰当的疫情应对。新冠肺炎疫情削弱了美国,暴露了美国的系统性分裂,以及一条横跨于政府承诺和现实之间的鸿沟。"
The death toll from COVID-19 stands at more than 194,000 in the US.
目前,美国新冠死亡病例数已超过19.4万例。
