It's the biggest party of the year 全年最大的欢庆聚会 New Year celebrations in London   For lots of people in Britain, the 31st of December, or New Year's Eve as we call it, is the biggest party of the year. It's a time to get together with friends or family and welcome in the coming year.   New Year's parties can take place at a number of different venues. Some people hold a house party; others attend street parties, while some just go to their local for a few drinks with their mates. Big cities, like London, have large and spectacular fireworks displays.  New Year's parties can take place at a number of different venues. Some people hold a house party; others attend street parties, while some just go to their local for a few drinks with their mates. Big cities, like London, have large and spectacular fireworks displays.   New Year celebrations in London   There's one thing that all New Year's Eve parties have in common: the countdown to midnight. When the clock strikes twelve, revellers give a loud cheer, pop champagne corks and give each other a kiss.   They then link arms and sing a song called Auld Lang's Syne, by a Scottish poet called Robert Burns. Not many people can remember all the lyrics, but the tune is well known, so lots of people just hum along.   The parties then continue into the early hours of the morning with lots of dancing and drinking. Because of this, for a lot of people New Year's Day starts with a hangover. Other people might spend the day visiting relatives or friends they haven't managed to catch up with for a while. Whatever happens, New Year's Day tends to be very relaxed.   In Britain, it's popular to make a promise to yourself about something you are going to do, or want to stop doing, in the New Year. This is called a New Year's resolution. Typical resolutions include giving up smoking and joining a gym to get fit. However, the promise is often broken quite quickly and people are back into their bad habits within weeks or days.   New Year's Day is the last bank holiday of the festive season, which means most people have to go to work the next day: bright and fresh and y for the new year ahead!

Mr Weisler said he believes the decline in the PC market “will moderate over time”, but did not know exactly when an uptick would occur. 该公司三分之二的营收要依赖PC销售。韦斯勒称,他相信PC市场的下滑趋势“将随着时间的推移而逐渐趋缓”,但是不知道何时才能止跌回升。 Analysts at Credit Suisse forecast that HP’s PC sales will fall 9 per cent this year. 瑞信(Credit Suisse)分析师预计,今年惠普的PC销量将下滑9%。 Another challenge has been the strong dollar and the weak yen, which gives Japanese competitors a big cost advantage. “We accept that it is the new normal,” Mr Weisler said, adding that HP’s response had been to cut costs. These measures have included accelerating the pace of lay-offs. 惠普面临的另一个挑战是美元走强、日元疲软,这使得日本竞争者拥有了较大的成本优势。“我们已经接受了这个新常态,”韦斯勒称,并补充称惠普的对策是削减成本。相关措施包括加速裁员步伐。 /201603/434353

Who could have imagined that a tmill on wheels would one day become a thing?!? Lopifit is an unusual means of transportation that allows you to power an electric bicycle by walking on a tmill.谁能想到有一天在跑步机上装轮子会成为流行?!?电动自行车Lopifit是一款与众不同的交通工具,你可以通过在跑步机行走来为它充电。Lopifit founder Bruin Bergmeester says it all started when he asked himself the question ;How can I use a tmill outdoor?;Lopifit的创始人布伦.伯格米斯特表示,这一切都始于他心中的一个疑问:“我怎么才能在室外使用跑步机呢?”He eventually came up with an functional design, added an electric engine, and the Lopifit was born. It#39;s similar to an electric bicycle in that the motor only engages when the rider puts power in as well.他最终想到了一个可行的设计,那就是在自行车上添加一台电动发动机,Lopifit就此诞生了。它和电动自行车的相似之处是,只有在骑车人注入动力时发动机才能接合。Only while typical e-bikes give pedal assist, the Lopifit senses when you walk on the tmill and uses the motor to turn a drive chain at the rear of the tmill, helping you reach a top speed of 17 miles per hour.只不过,一般的电动自行车是辅助脚踏板的,但当你走上Lopifit的跑步机时它能够有所感应,并通过发动机带动跑步机后部的传动链,其最高时速可达约27千米。To use the Lopifit, simply turn on the battery and use your foot to slide the tmill backwards and activate the motor.驾驶Lopifit时,你只需打开电源,用脚让跑步机向后滑动来启动发动机。Then get on and enjoy the ride! If you need speed, just walk on the tmill, and if you want to coast, all you have to do is stay still and admire the view.然后,你就可以上车飞驰了!如果你想加速,只需在跑步机上走起来,而如果你想慢慢滑行,只要呆着别动欣赏风景就可以了。To stop, you have two hand breaks at your disposal.你可以随意使用两个手刹停下来。The right lever disengages the motor assist and activates a rear disc brake, while the left one stops the tmill itself, so you can go from motor assist to coasting.右边的操纵杆可分离发动机助动装置,同时启动底部盘式制动器,而左边的操纵杆可以让跑步机自己停下,这样你就不会滑行了。The Lopifit first hit the streets in 2014 and, unsurprisingly, became an instant hit.不出所料,2014年Lopifit首次出街便火速蹿红。That was actually quite challenging for the company, because it started getting inquiries and calls for orders, but it was nowhere near y for mass production.这对Lopifit公司来说是一个很大的考验,因为他们还远没有做好大规模生产的准备,就开始收到咨询和订购需求。The unique tmill bicycle became available this year, and Lopifit is struggling to keep up with demand, despite the hefty price tag of ,115.Lopifit今年已经开售,虽然这款独特的跑步机式自行车售价高达2115美元,但是仍然供不应求。But despite having a very loyal fan-base of so-called Lopifitters, the ingenious means of transportation also has naysayers who simply consider the concept stupid and unnecessary.不过,除了一批被称为Lopifitter的死忠粉外,也有人不看好这款颇具创意的交通工具,他们觉得这样的创意愚蠢而多此一举。They basically believe that if you#39;re going to walk, you might as well do it the old fashioned way.他们主要认为如果你想要步行,还不如就用传统的方式。But the Lopifit does have the unique advantage of helping you “walk” really fast without breaking a sweat, or walking at cycling speed, if you will.可是,Lopifit独特的优点是,如果你愿意的话,它可以让你不流一滴汗就“走”得和自行车一样快。 /201612/483369

KOLKATA: iPhone sales shot up in India in the three days immediately following demonetisation as consumers rushed to buy these devices with their phasedout high-denomination notes and stores booked sales through back-dated receipts. As per trade estimates, over 1 lakh iPhones were sold in these three days, which is around three-fourth of this handset’s average monthly sales.印度废钞后的3天,iphone销量飙升,顾客用即将废弃的高面值钞票购买iphone。根据估算,3天内卖出10多万台iphone,大约是平时每月销量的四分之三。The spurt in iPhone sales mirrored the demand for gold and high-value luxury items that shot up in the first few days following the scrapping of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes on the evening of November 8.iphone销量的井喷,反应了自从11月8日开始废除500卢比和1000卢比面值钞票后的几天里,人们对黄金和奢侈品需求的激增。“iPhones were sold out in most of the neighbourhood stores after demonetisation. In fact, on that night (of November 8) itself several stores sold iPhones till midnight. Some even sold them at a premium,” said the owner of a leading neighbourhood cellphone store in New Delhi.人们用即将废弃的纸币,购买昂贵的手机,使得苹果成为11月唯一满足销售目标的手机厂商。The rush to offload cancelled currency notes by buying these expensive handsets has resulted in Apple being the only phone maker to meet sales target in November. Its sales during the month are estimated to have grown by 20-30% while handset sales, as a whole, are down compared with the year-ago period, said four industry executives.据估算,苹果11月销量增加了20-30%,而其他手机厂商的销量比去年同期有所下降。 /201611/480825
