With the Olympic Games well underway, some Australian athletes are looking for a match off the field. 里约奥运正在火热进行中,而同时,一些澳大利亚运动员也在赛场外寻找配对。Single athletes are using the wildly popular hook-up app Tinder to spice things up at the Olympic Village in the Brazilian city. 单身的运动员们纷纷使用热门约会软件Tinder,来为里约奥运村的生活增添趣味。Instagram accounts Tinderrio and Sportsswipe have uncovered the profiles of a string of Australian sporting names who are swiping left and right at the Games. Instagram上的两个账号Tinderrio和 Sportsswipe公布了一连串在奥运会期间使用该软件的澳大利亚选手资料。Tennis star Thanasi Kokkinakis is among the legion of the world#39;s sporting elite who are apparently turning to the location-based matchmaking app. 网球明星塔纳西#8226;科基纳基斯也名列用户大军中。这些体坛精英显然都在使用这款基于地理位置的配对软件。Figures from the app reveal the number of people who #39;matched#39; had jumped 129 percent since the athletes arrived at their accommodation over the weekend. 软件数据显示,自从运动员们周末入住奥运村以来,“配对”人数暴涨129%。Cyclists Kaarle McCulloch and Sam Welsford and swimmers Madeleine Grove and Leah Neale have also been supposedly spotted on the dating app. 自行车手卡尔丽#8226;麦克库罗斯和山姆#8226;韦尔斯福德,游泳选手玛德琳#8226;格鲁夫和莉亚#8226;尼尔似乎也出现在了该约会软件上。Water polo player Ashleigh Southern has been active on her account, with one of her profile pictures featuring a selfie in a white and green pinstripe blazer in front of Australia#39;s tower in the village. 水球选手阿什莉#8226;萨瑟恩的账号非常活跃,其个人资料里还有一张她穿着白绿相间的细条纹运动,站在村内澳洲公寓楼前的自拍。The number of active users within the athletes#39; village shot up by 64 percent, while the number of #39;swipes#39; soared by 69 percent. 运动员村的活跃用户数量狂增64%,而使用该软件时的“滑动”操作次数上涨了69%。Profiles from international athletes of nearly every sport can be found with updates like #39;Got plenty of time to kill,#39; or #39;Looking for fun in Rio!#39; 几乎所有项目的各国运动员更新着自己的动态,可以看到他们的个人状态上写着“大把时间需要消磨”或者“里约寻乐”。Despite the Olympics now getting into full swing, technicians for the app claim the figures are still rising by the day. 尽管奥运赛事正在如火如荼地进行,Tinder的技术人员称,相关使用数据每天仍在上涨。The International Olympic Committee perhaps anticipated Rio 2016 becoming the steamiest on record by handing out 450,000 free condoms - the most ever for an Olympics Games. 国际奥委会或许预感到里约奥运会成为史上最狂野的一届,于是分发了45万个免费避套——这是迄今发放最多的一次。And in addition, Australians have also been given 1,500 double-strength rubber following concerns of the Zika virus. 此外,考虑到寨卡病毒的威胁,澳大利亚选手还拿到了1500个双重防护避套。The condoms contain an antiviral lubricant for #39;added protection#39; designed to combat against the mosquito-borne disease, which can also be transmitted through sexual contact. 这些避套含有抗病毒的润滑剂,形成针对寨卡病毒的“额外防护”。该病毒也可以通过性接触传播。The IOC says the condoms, which are known as #39;Little shirts of venus#39; in Brazil, would encourage 10,500 athletes and staff to practice safe sex. 国际奥委会称,提供避套将鼓励10500名运动员和工作人员进行安全的性行为。在巴西,避套还被称为“维纳斯的小衬衫”。Free condoms have been supplied since the 1988 Olympics in Seoul. 自1988年汉城奥运会起,就开始提供免费避套。Australian swimmer Melanie Schlanger, 29, said recently that athletes will not be abstaining from sex during the games in the village. 29岁的澳大利亚游泳选手梅拉妮#8226;施伦格最近表示,赛会期间,村内的运动员并不会禁欲。 /201608/460078Most valuable brands: 9 American and 1 from China世界10大最有价值品牌:中国1个、美国9个Shenzhen-based tech firm Tencent has broken into a ranking of the top 10 most valuable brands published by BrandZ.Brand Z全球最具价值品牌百强榜新鲜出炉,总部位于深圳的腾讯名列第10位,成为历史上首次进入榜单前十名的中国公司。The annual ranking is typically dominated by American companies with global reach, making the inclusion of a Chinese firm notable.长期以来进入该榜单的绝大多数都是美国品牌,因此,腾讯此次入榜尤其值得注意。Tencent specializes in popular online games, apps, instant messaging services and online payments.

Are you planning to buy a new Samsung smartphone soon? Google Play Music may become your go-to music player.你最近有买新款三星手机的打算吗?谷歌Play音乐可能会成为你的新音乐播放器。Google has teamed up with Samsung to make Google Play Music the default music player on new Samsung phones and tablets around the world, including the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.谷歌公司已经与三星公司联手,使谷歌Play音乐成为三星手机和平板电脑--包括Galaxy S8和Galaxy S8+系列--的默认音乐播放器。Google also teased some ;special; Google Play Music features just for Samsung customers.此外,谷歌方面还表示,谷歌Play音乐的一些“特殊”功能只有三星用户才能使用。;For starters, if you have a new Samsung phone or tablet, you can now upload and stream up to 100,000 of your own songs to Google Play Music for free,; Google Play Music Lead Product Manager Elias Roman wrote in a blog post.

个高女性生双胞胎的几率大Taller women are more likely to have twins, according to a US study.Gary Steinman, an obstetrician at New York's Long Island Jewish Medical Center, compared the heights of 129 women who gave birth to twins or triplets with the average height of women in the ed States and found women with multiple-birth pregnancies averaged more than an inch taller.Steinman, whose study is being published in the September issue of the Journal of Reproductive Medicine, said the reason seems to be aninsulin-like growth factor, which has been positively linked to both height and twinning.Insulin-like growth factor is a protein that is released from the liver in response to growth hormone. It increases the sensitivity of the ovaries to follicle stimulating hormone, thereby increasing ovulation, the study said."Any circumstance that affects the amount of available insulin-like growth factor so as to modify the sensitivity of the ovary to follicle-stimulating hormone appears to govern the rate of spontaneous twinning," Steinman said in a statement.Previous studies have demonstrated that shorter people have significantly lower levels of this protein and that countries with taller women have higher rates of twinning compared to countries with shorter women.In a previous study, Steinman found that women who consume animal products, specifically dairy, were five times more likely to have twins. Cows, like humans, produce insulin-like growth factor in response to growth hormones and release it into the blood, and the protein makes its way into their milk.(Agencies)美国一项研究表明,个子高的女性生双胞胎的可能性较大。纽约长岛犹太医疗中心的妇产科医师加里·斯汀曼将129名生过双胞胎或三胞胎的女性的身高与美国女性的平均身高进行了对比,结果发现生过多胞胎的女性平均身高要高出2.54厘米。斯汀曼的此项研究结果在《生殖医学》的第九期上发表,他说,这可能和类胰岛素生长因子有关,类胰岛素生长因子与身高和孪生几率呈正相关关系。类胰岛素生长因子是人体肝脏在生长激素的作用下分泌出的一种蛋白质。研究表明,类胰岛素生长因子能增强卵巢对促卵泡激素的敏感度,从而促进排卵。斯汀曼在一份声明中提到:"任何能影响类胰岛素生长因子分泌量的因素都会改变卵巢对促卵泡激素的敏感度,从而影响自然孪生的几率。"之前已有研究表明,个矮的人体内分泌的类胰岛素生长因子量要低很多,此外,女性个子较高的国家比女性个子较矮的国家的双胞胎出生率高。斯汀曼在此前的一个研究中发现,常食用畜产品尤其是奶制品的女性生双胞胎的几率比不食用这些食品的女性大五倍。奶牛和人一样,也能在生长激素的作用下分泌类胰岛素生长因子,这种蛋白质被释放到血液里,从而进入到牛奶中。Vocabulary:insulin-like growth factor :类胰岛素生长因子(IGF) /200803/31407
