>UK driver's sandwich confiscated
英旅客食物被海关没收
Dutch TV news has aired footage of customs officers confiscating ham sandwiches from drivers arriving by ferry from the UK, under post-Brexit rules banning personal imports of meat and dairy products.
荷兰电视新闻近日播出了海关人员没收多名从英国乘渡轮抵达的司机的火腿三明治的画面。
Officials wearing high-visibility jackets are shown explaining to startled car and truck drivers at the Hook of Holland ferry terminal that since Brexit, "you are no longer allowed to bring certain foods to Europe, like meat, fruit, vegetables, fish, that kind of stuff."
根据英国"脱欧"后的规定,个人不得携带肉类和奶制品进入欧盟。身穿反光背心的海关人员在荷兰胡克渡轮码头向满脸惊讶的汽车和货车司机解释,自英国"脱欧"以来,"你们不再获准将肉类、水果、蔬菜、鱼类等食物带到欧洲"。
To a bemused driver with several sandwiches wrapped in tin foil who asked if he could maybe surrender the meat and keep just the bread, one customs officer replied: "No, everything will be confiscated. Welcome to the Brexit, sir, I'm sorry."
一名一脸茫然的司机拿着几个用锡纸包好的三明治询问是否可以不要肉,只留下面包,一名海关官员答道:"不可以,所有东西都得没收。欢迎'脱欧',对不起了,先生。"
The ban came into force on New Year's Day as the Brexit transition period came to an end, with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs saying travelers should "use, consume, or dispose of" prohibited items at or before the border.
随着"脱欧"过渡期的结束,该禁令于元旦正式生效,英国环境、食品和农村事务部(Defra)表示,旅客在边境或进入边境前应 "使用掉、消耗掉或处理掉 "违禁物品。
Dutch customs also posted a photograph of foodstuffs officials had confiscated in the ferry terminal, adding: "Since Jan 1, you can't just bring more food from the UK."
荷兰海关还贴出了一张在渡轮码头没收的从早餐谷物到橙子的各种食物照片,并补充道:"自1月1日起,您不能再从英国带入更多的食物"。

>Singaporeans opt for e-hongbao
新加坡鼓励发电子红包
With Chinese New Year around the corner, the hongbao - or red packets - traditionally exchanged during this period are on the minds of many Singaporeans.
春节临近,许多新加坡人惦记着包红包,发红包是过年期间的一个传统。
While hongbao are usually given by hand, it has become common practice in China for relatives to send each other e-hongbao via messaging app WeChat.
虽然红包通常都是当面发,但在中国,亲戚之间通过通讯应用微信互发电子红包已成为普遍做法。
In a statement on Monday, the Monetary Authority of Singapore encouraged Singaporeans to opt for e-hongbao this Chinese New Year.
1月11日,新加坡金融管理局(金管局)发布声明,鼓励新加坡人今年春节发电子红包。
"They will help to reduce queues for physical notes and are more environmentally friendly," MAS said.
新加坡金管局表示,"这将有助于减少排队换新钞的现象,并且更加环保"。
One way to send e-hongbao is via PayNow.
发送电子红包的一种方式是通过使用电子转账服务PayNow。
Those who bank with Citibank, DBS Bank, OCBC Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, UOB and Maybank will soon be able to add Chinese New Year greetings when they do so.
在花旗银行、星展银行、华侨银行、渣打银行、大华银行和马来西亚银行开户的用户,很快就可以在转账的同时附上春节祝福语。
Some Singaporeans prefer gifting new physical notes but these are often returned to the banks by the public after Chinese New Year anyway.
一些新加坡人更喜欢发崭新的纸钞,但无论如何,这些纸钞往往会在春节后被市民存回银行。
MAS estimates some 330 tons of carbon emissions are generated by the production of new notes each Chinese New Year.
新加坡金管局估计,每年春节因印制新钞而产生的碳排放量多达约330吨。

The US Justice Department announced on Thursday that Boeing has agreed to pay more than $2.5 billion to resolve a criminal charge related to a conspiracy to defraud regulators over the 737 MAX crashes. Boeing's $2.5-billion fine is composed of a criminal monetary penalty of $243.6 million, compensation payments to Boeing's 737 MAX airline customers of $1.77 billion, and the establishment of a $500-million crash-victim beneficiaries fund to compensate the heirs, relatives, and legal beneficiaries of the 346 passengers who died in the Boeing 737 MAX crashes of Lion Air Flight 610 and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302.
