  • Social scientists, after crunching data from both sides of the Atlantic, have discovered something surprising: it’s not the amount of racial or ethnic diversity in a community that predicts white resentment and support of anti-immigrant policies, but the pace of change.
  • There’s a (not so) quiet revolution going on under the hoods of today’s cars, trucks and crossovers if the latest list of best engines compiled by the experts at WardsAuto is any indication. Turbocharged, supercharged and diesel engines – and even one electric motor – dominate the 20th annual 10 Best Engines awards, which, according to Wards, “recognize outstanding powertrain achievement, world-class technologies and those rare engines or electric propulsion systems that are so compelling they help sell the vehicle.”
    Over the past 20 years, at least 133,000 units in the city have gone market rate because of this rule, according to the Rent Guidelines Board. If the trend continues, rent stabilization could be further weakened, undermining Mayor de Blasio’s efforts to preserve affordable housing, say supporters of the policy.
  • About 40 per cent of entrepreneurs did not seek any help when securing finance. Half of these raised equity purely from their own savings and/or family and friends compared with only 40 per cent of those who sought help from the school or alumni network.
    Martha Cherry took a cigarette out of her mouth, murmured, "I've been there," and resumed smoking. Marc was in shock (which, let's face it, is a pretty healthy response when you realize your own mother may or may not have had thoughts of murdering you while you bathed). He realized for the first time how desperate and lonely it could be to be a housewife. He realized then and there that he was upon a very good idea for a TV show. This conversation was the birth of Desperate Housewives.

After one of the most intense lockdowns, Spain is now experiencing one of the most intense surges in COVID-19 cases.

With the prices of most commodities having recovered somewhat since February 2016, the year-on-year fall in unit prices has slowed to around 5 per cent.

The Great Recession had devastating effects across the U.S. and few places were as hard hit as Arizona. The state was booming on the strength of its tourism and real estate markets during the 2000s. Median home prices jumped 70% between 2003 and 2006—only Nevada had bigger gains—fueling more building and construction jobs. Monthly unemployment was at 3.5% through much of 2007. But then the bottom fell out. Home prices plummeted more than 50% from their peak and 6% Arizona properties received foreclosure filings in 2009. Unemployment stubbornly remained in double-figures for most of 2009 and 2010 and only Nevada lost a higher percentage of jobs over the last five years. Household incomes declined at the fastest rate in the country since 2008.

Now, the country’s current resurgence could portend similar upticks elsewhere in Europe.

Drones and police roadblocks were reportedly used to enforce the measures.

Those measures expired at the end of June. In the next 3 weeks, the rate of infection tripled.

On Aug. 21, new confirmed COVID-19 cases neared 10,000 per day.

In the week and a half since, new cases have declined a bit from that peak, but before the uptick began in early July, that figure had been 500 cases or lower for about 2 months.

A rapid reopening, especially in terms of nightlife and family gatherings, has been cited as partly to blame.

The Cnzz.com report also discusses the problem of the 'free-to-play' business model that's prevalent in China's online game sector. While many games companies in the U.S., for example, charge subscription fees, most Chinese games utilize the free-to-play model, which allows players to try out a game without paying. The longer players stay in the game, the more likely they will be to pay for in-game items to move up into higher levels of play. But that also means that people who spend the most money are the best performers.

“In both countries, we have also seen a sharp decrease in the average age of those infected, from 60 to 37 years in Spain, and about the same in the U.S., and almost half of those who test positive are asymptomatic in both countries,” said Amira Roess, PhD, MPH, a professor of global health and epidemiology at George Mason University in Virginia.

过去二十多年间,我一直在写关于亚洲崛起及其推动力量的文章。东亚各国领导人之间有一个了不起的共识:亚洲需要利用当前的机会之窗,把重点放在经济发展和增长上。战争是发展的最大阻碍。如果亚洲人真的愚蠢,他们或会卷入这样的战争,破坏自己巨大的发展前景。大多数亚洲国家(除了朝鲜)的领导人,都很明白战争的危险。因此,虽然这一地区会出现局势紧张和对抗,但无论在2014年还是2015年都不会爆发战争。随着2015年缓缓展开,我想鼓励所有西方学者根据亚洲本身的情况理解亚洲的根本发展动力,而非将理解建立在西方先入之见的基础上。
An employee in the public relations department at Tencent Holdings, operator of a live-broadcast app through which a man received online payments of more than 250,000 yuan ($36,400) from a 13-year-old girl for his singing talent, said the girl might have faked her age when registering.

There will not likely be a return to the whiteness of social dominance and exclusive national identity. Immigration cannot be halted without damaging Western nations’ economies; immigrants who have already arrived cannot be expelled en masse without causing social and moral damage. And the other groups who seem to be “cutting in line” are in fact getting a chance at progress that was long denied them.
A pair of post-mumblecore comedies about self-realization and its limits. Mr. Bujalski’s is a flawless screwball triangle (with Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders and Kevin Corrigan as the sides) masquerading as an easygoing hangout with the oddballs of Austin, Tex. Ms. Piven surveys the darker territory of mental illness and daytime television. Thanks to Kristen Wiig’s astounding performance (as a lottery winner named Alice Klieg), “Welcome to Me” is a portrait of an American dreamer that is unsettling and inspiring in equal measure.

Despite our global economy, only 20 percent of Americans speak another language. Sixty Vocab is aiming to change that with it’s online foreign language game. Based on the premise that 2000 words equals 60 percent of a foreign language, Sixty Vocab is aiming to make learning essential vocabulary fun. The games teach the words most commonly used in conversation and applies time-based discipline — the faster you guess the word, the more rapidly you move on to the next one.

当年的荷兰金融市场固然没有今天的任何科技,但他们的很多做法都和今天的交易员一样。投资者们买入证券,有时会用买入的股票质押获得贷款。用今天的话说,他们基于保证金买入股票。贷款机构为了自身安全,会要求一个超出贷款金额一定百分比的“折幅”,质押现金或证券。如果证券价格下跌超过一定幅度,贷款机构会要求投资者交出更多资金,与“折幅”保持一致。如果投资者拿不出追加保证金,贷款机构有权将证券平仓,收回贷款额。

Also called self-driving cars, autonomous cars have been making the news recently. Chief among them are Google's self-driving cars. Google's driverless cars have traveled over 480,000 kilometers (300,000 mi) with only two accidents, both of which were caused by humans. But self-driving cars aren't new. In fact, their concepts have arguably been around since the days of Leonardo da Vinci, who invented a spring-powered cart with a programmable steering device.
