>Half the world may need glasses in 30 years
2050年全球将有一半人患近视


Young people spending hours staring at screens means half the world may need glasses within 30 years.
如今年轻人盯着屏幕的时间达数小时,这意味着未来30年内世界上一半的人可能要戴眼镜。


Phone devices and computer screens are to blame for the rising risk of near-sightedness among children and young adults, say scientists.
科学家称,手机和电脑屏幕是儿童和年轻人近视风险上升的罪魁祸首。


Researchers have found high levels of looking at a phone or tablet is linked with around a 30% higher risk of near-sightedness, also known as myopia.
研究人员发现,长时间盯着手机或平板电脑会使患近视的风险增加约30%。


But when it is combined with excessive computer use, that risk rose to around 80%.
但如果再加上过度使用电脑,这种风险将上升到80%左右。


Researchers fear that this could mean that by 2050, half the world, or 5 billion people, could be near-sighted.
研究人员担心,这可能意味着到2050年,世界上一半人口或50亿人可能患近视。

乌克兰航空公司改革空姐制服


Alexandrina Denysenko, a senior flight attendant with seven years of experience, says she sometimes does not get a spare minute to sit down during a flight and dreams of resting her swollen legs after spending hours wearing heels.
拥有七年工作经验的资深空乘人员亚历山德里娜·德尼森科表示,她有时在飞行途中全程没有片刻时间能坐下,脚踩高跟鞋长达数小时的她好希望可以让自己肿痛的双腿休息一下。


SkyUp Airlines, the privately owned Ukrainian carrier that employs Denysenko, decided to put an end to heels and pencil skirts after collecting feedback from flight attendants about their uniform.
德尼森科就职的乌克兰民营航空公司SkyUp在收集空乘人员关于制服的反馈后,决定不再让空乘人员穿高跟鞋和铅笔裙。


The new SkyUp uniform for women now includes white Nike sneakers and a loose orange suit with trousers and a silk scarf, both made by Ukrainian brands. White T-shirts will replace blouses.

>Man builds rotating house
老人为妻子打造旋转房屋


A Bosnian man has built a house that rotates 360 degrees, for his wife to enjoy the ever-changing views.
波黑一位72岁的老人沃金·库西奇建造了一栋旋转房屋,只为让妻子欣赏到不同视角的风景。


Vojin Kusic, 72, built the home in Srbac, northern Bosnia and Herzegovina, for his wife Ljubica, who has a penchant for changing views.
沃金·库西奇在波黑北部的斯巴克为妻子柳比卡建造了这座房子,因为妻子喜欢变换的风景。


This is not the first time Kusic built a house for his family.
这不是库西奇第一次为家人建房子。


When they first married, he built a regular, non-rotating home, where he and his wife raised their three children.
他们刚结婚时,他自己盖了一栋不能旋转的普通房屋,在那里他和妻子养育了三个孩子。


At the time, his wife wanted their bedroom to face the sun, but this meant their living room faced away from the road.
当时,他的妻子希望他们的卧室朝阳面,但这意味着客厅就要背对马路。


After some time, this issue proved too much, and Kusic had to get to work to switch the entire house around.
过了一段时间,他们觉得这样还是不行,库西奇不得不动手,把整个房子调转方向。


When the family moved, Kusic said he had learned his lesson, and not wanting to have to switch the home around again, decided a rotating house would solve the problem.
他们搬家时,库西奇说他吸取了第一次的教训,因为不想再把家里调换一番,他决定建一座旋转的房子来解决这个问题。


“Now, our front door also rotates, so if she spots unwanted guests heading our way, she can spin the house and make them turn away,” he joked.
他开玩笑称:"现在房子的正门也会旋转,所以如果她发现不受欢迎的客人来访,可以旋转房子,让他们吃闭门羹。"
