  • This is it; our last show of the 2022 spring season, and we're so glad you could take 10 minutes to watch.

    時候到了,我們 2022 年春季的最後一集節目,我們非常高興你能夠撥出 10 分鐘觀賞。

  • My name is Carl Azuz, and our objective coverage of world events begins in China.

    我的名字是 Carl Azuz,我們針對世界事件的客觀報導從中國開始。

  • Government media there say more than 100,000 people took part in an emergency online meeting this week.

    當地政府媒體指出,超過 10 萬人參與了本週一場緊急線上會議。

  • The focus?


  • How to help the Chinese economythe second largest in the worldas it struggles from the communist country's response to the ongoing COVID pandemic.


  • While many other nations are learning to live with the disease, China has maintained a strict zero-COVID policy.


  • And what that tries to do is crush every chain of covid transmission.


  • That includes mandatory quarantines, quick lockdowns, closed borders, mass testing, and contact tracing, which follows people wherever they go.


  • But a growing side effect of this is that it's hurting China's economic growth.


  • International investment banks expect it'll be significantly less this year than it was last year.


  • At the meeting, China's government announced dozens of new efforts to stimulate the economy, including more tax refunds, loans to small businesses, and emergency loans to industries that are struggling.


  • But though some of China's COVID rules are being relaxed, the nation's still pushing forward with the controversial zero-COVID policy.


  • And that's created immense challenges during the Omicron variant of the disease because, while it's less severe than other versions of coronavirus, it's more contagious.

    那在新冠變異株 Omicron 疫情期間引發了巨大挑戰,因為它雖然嚴重程度不及其它新冠病毒變異,但它的傳染性更強。

  • CNN estimates that China's restrictions are impacting 220 million people across the country, here's how.

    CNN 估計中國的限制影響了全國上下 2.2 億人口,影響方式如下。

  • This is part of my daily routine in Beijing.


  • Getting my temperature checkmandatory testing for the city's 20 million plus residents.

    測量我的體溫,這是城裡 2 千萬名以上居民的強制檢測。

  • I've got to show them my passport, and they have to type it in every single time.


  • In Beijing, nearly all public activity has been halted indefinitely, over just a few dozen daily COVID cases.


  • Not a soul in sight in the center of Beijing's luxury shopping district.


  • All non-essential stores have been shut down, including schools and gyms, and all in-restaurant dining is banned indefinitely.


  • The only crowds in Beijing are parades of COVID workers, spraying disinfectant all over the streets.


  • Officials here are cracking down early and aggressively to try and avoid the failures of the months-long lockdown in Shanghai.


  • So, it's green; I'm good to go in.


  • I need this green code to enter any area in Beijing.


  • If it turns red, then I could be stuck at home or sent to quarantine.


  • Through these smartphone apps, authorities can carefully track the movements of virtually all of China's 1.4 billion people.

    透過這些應用程式,當局可以仔細追蹤中國 14 億人口幾乎所有人的行動。

  • If a COVID case is later found at this grocery store, authorities can quickly contact trace and figure out whose code needs to turn red.


  • Grocery shelves here fully-stocked.


  • Beijing officials clearly trying to show people that no matter how long this partial lockdown lasts for, people are going to be fed.


  • It's not gonna be like in Shanghai, where people have been struggling to get enough food and daily essentials in lockdown.


  • This is a building where a positive COVID case has been found; you can see the workers in hazmat suits, the blue barrier around the building.


  • This is to keep the people who live there locked inside, but it also serves as a warning to other residents.


  • There is a fear that if you spend too much time by a locked-down building, your QR code could turn red.


  • This is just one of the many high-risk areas in Beijing.


  • Residents avoid even transiting through the red dots on the map.


  • It's lunchtime in Beijing's most popular food district.


  • Normally, people here would be gathered, crowded shoulder-to-shoulder, but now, it is essentially a ghost town.


  • With even most parks closed, there's nowhere for people to gather and see friends, except for by the side of the road and these unofficial public spaces.


  • And even here, there are signs reminding people to avoid crowds and security guards on the loudspeakers telling people to distance themselves.


  • But after more than two years of these on-and-off restrictions, people are getting frustrated.


  • A student protest even broke out at one of China's most prestigious universities over harsh COVID policies.


  • Every part of our days are tracked and surveilled.


  • People are concerned that this control is here to stay long after COVID is gone.


  • Selina Wang, CNN, Beijing.

    CNN 的 Selina Wang 在北京報導。

  • 10-second trivia: Which of these American car brands is the oldest?

    10 秒快問快答:下列美國車輛品牌何者最老?

  • Cadillac, Chevrolet, Ford, or Lincoln.


  • Cadillac rolled onto the scene in 1902, making it the oldest car maker on this list.

    凱迪拉克於 1902 年出現在市場上,使其成為名單上最老的汽車製造商。

  • The average car in America is now a teenager.


  • Let me explain.


  • Americans are holding on to their vehicles longer than ever.


  • This is according to S&P Global Mobility, which examines data from automotive markets.


  • Now, the average car on the road is just over 13 years old, which means many are much older and the average light truck is about 11.5 years old.

    現在道路上的平均車齡稍微超過 13 歲,這表示很多車輛都比那老舊,而輕型卡車的平均車齡約為 11.5 歲。

  • So, combined, the vehicles we commonly drive are over 12.

    結合以上,我們一般駕駛的車輛都超過 12 歲。

  • Analysts say there are several reasons.


  • For one thing, there's an ongoing shortage of computer chips and car parts for new vehiclesthat's hurt their sales and driven prices up.


  • The used-car market has been affected.


  • Prices for previously-owned vehicles hit an all-time high early this year, though they've dropped a little since then.


  • Analysts say some cars are lasting longer than they used to, so people don't need to get rid of them.


  • And junkyards are reporting their lowest scrap rate in decades.


  • So, people are putting more miles on what they have.


  • In rocket-launching news, you hear a lot about SpaceX.

    提到火箭發射的新聞,你會聽到很多關於 SpaceX 的消息。

  • There's another private American companyone of its competitors that has also received billions in funding from NASA.

    還有一間美國私營公司從 NASA 獲得數十億美元的補助,它是 SpaceX 的競爭對手之一。

  • That company is Boeing.


  • It also makes passenger planes, and its Starliner spacecraft just completed its first successful mission to the International Space Station.


  • It returned to Earth this week in the desert of New Mexico; this was an uncrewed mission.


  • Boeing hopes to send up astronauts by the end of the year, but it still has challenges to overcome.


  • In this flight, there were problems with some of its thrusters, which help maneuver Starliner in space.


  • Three... two... one... and lift off.


  • Starliner is headed back to space on the shoulders of Atlas, powered by a workforce dedicated to its success.


  • (Boeing finally had a successful test launch of its Starliner rocket)


  • We know now, however, who will build those spacecraft(s).


  • (In 2014, NASA awarded Boeing and SpaceX contracts to develop rockets to bring astronauts to space.)

    (2014 年時,NASA 與波音公司以及 SpaceX 簽署開發可以送宇航員進入太空的火箭)

  • (Boeing has faced a myriad of problems and delays on its way to this milestone)


  • (A 2019 launch was forced to return to Earth because Starliner's internal clock was off by 11 hours)

    (2019 年的一次發射因為星際航線內部時鐘偏差 11 小時而被迫返航回地球)

  • (In 2021, sticking valves caused a launch to be scratched before the Starliner was sent back to the Boeing factory to be fixed)

    (2021 年時,卡住的閥門使得一次發射計劃被取消,隨後星際航線被送回波音工廠維修)

  • ... two... one...


  • ... zero... ignition. (In the time Boeing took to have its first successful uncrewed launch, SpaceX has had six astronaut launches for NASA)

    ⋯⋯零⋯⋯點火。 (在波音公司嘗試讓第一次無人任務成功發射期間,SpaceX 已為 NASA 執行了 6 次載人發射任務)

  • (One NASA official said that because it was used to the Boeing process, it focused a little more on SpaceX and its non-traditional approach)

    (一位 NASA 官員表示,因為它太習慣波音流程,所以反而更專注於 SpaceX 以及其非典型作法)

  • (And another NASA official admitted not enough about Starliner was understoodSource: "The New York Times")

    (另一位 NASA 官員則承認對於星際航線的了解還不夠。來源:《紐約時報》)

  • Hard to think of a better story for our "10 out of 10" segment than a shark-cano.

    對於「10 秒趣聞」這個環節,很難想到比「鯊火山」更好的故事了。

  • Yeah, a shark-cano.


  • A NASA satellite recently photographed a plume of discolored water in the Pacific Ocean.

    一架 NASA 衛星近期在大平洋海域中捕捉到了變色成煙霧貌的水域影像。

  • Scientists say this is where an undersea volcano in the Solomon Islands is continuously erupting, and an expedition here in 2015 found that the crater is home to silky and hammerhead sharks.

    科學家們說,這是索羅門群島中一座海底火山不斷噴發的區域,而 2015 年一次在這裡的考察發現這個火山口是黑鯊與鎚頭鯊的棲息地。

  • They're apparently able to tolerate the hot and acidic water, so, it's a shark-cano.


  • You'd have to be pretty "cal-daring" to swim down there.


  • Few things are "crater" than a shark that gives "vent" to its "rage".


  • No one would have to ask you to "lava".


  • You wouldn't lack a list of reasons to quit being "sill" and swim from the "hill" like "mag-mama" told you to.


  • I'm Carl Azuz, and that takes a "bite" out of our last show of the season.

    我是 Carl Azuz,以上是占據本季最終集絕大部分的內容。

  • [I] Want to give a shout-out to Jones Magnet Middle School and all of our viewers watching in Hampton, Virginia.

    我想對維吉尼亞州漢普頓的 Jones Magnet 中學以及所有當地觀眾打個招呼。

  • We've got some new stuff in the works, so please keep up with us on our YouTube channel.
