Chris, The World#39;s Woolliest Sheep Gets A Much Needed Haircut绵羊Chris终于重获轻松On September 2nd, Canberra#39;s Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) received news of a woolly creature roaming around in the Mulligans Flat Nature Reserve on the outskirts of the city. When the officials arrived to investigate, they discovered a barely visible ram buried under a giant ball of beautiful merino wool.9月2日,堪培拉皇家动物保护协会(简称RSPCA)收到了报告,说在位于郊区的Mulligans自然保护区有只毛巨长的家伙在游荡。当相关人员赶去调查时,发现了这只被厚厚羊毛包裹得几乎看不到身子的绵羊。It took five men to bring the errant animal to the rescue center. The poor sheep who was nicknamed ;Chris; could barely walk under what appeared to be at least seven years of fleece growth. RSPCA officials knew that to ensure the animal#39;s well-being, they should relieve him of his thick coat as soon as possible. That#39;s because Chris could be harboring some serious infections under the wool and it could also be impeding his need to go to the bathroom.五个人一起才把这只游荡的小东西带回营救中心。这只被人们起名为Chris的绵羊,身负至少长了7年的羊毛,几乎不能走动。RSPCA很清楚,要帮助这只小家伙,就必须先除去它厚重的毛。因为它毛下很可能严重感染,同时排泄也受到阻碍。However, the shearing had to be approached carefully. That#39;s because Chris had not been subjected to it for many years and just the process could lead to shock and death. To minimize his trauma, the rescuers decided to mildly sedate the animal. They also enlisted the help of experienced shearer Ian Elkins for the job.然而,剪羊毛必须谨慎进行。因为它应该多年无此经历,这个过程很可能引起惊吓甚至导致死亡。为了减小它可能遭受的风险,该组织决定采取温和的方式使其镇定下来。同时,他们也找来了经验丰富的剪羊毛工人Ian Elkins来进行这个工作。While a lot longer than the three minutes it takes to shear an average sheep with five pounds of fleece, Elkins said he been expecting to spend at least two-three hours on the job. The expert attributes the success of the smooth operation to Chris. The smart sheep appeared to understand what the humans were trying to accomplish and remained surprisingly calm and relaxed through the shearing process.给大约五磅羊毛的绵羊剃毛仅需大概3分钟,但是Elkins说给Chris剪也许需要花费2-3个小时。专家们认为这次的成功主要归功于Chris自身,它在剪毛过程中十分镇定和放松,仿佛懂得人们是为了它好。Chris, who has lost almost half his weight, is now recuperating under the watchful eyes of the rescue center#39;s veterinarians. As for his wool? Turns out it is not of very high quality and therefore, has no commercial value.Chris身上大概剪去了相当于它原来体重一般的羊毛,现在正在营救中心接受兽医的监护。那它剪去的羊毛还有用吗?由于这些经年积累的羊毛质量并不高,所以并没有什么商业价值。译文属原创,仅供学习和交流使用,未经许可,。 /201510/405754

Don’t blink or you’ll miss the next “new” San Francisco. This is a city that’s reinventing itself with every refresh of your Twitter feed, with cranes rising all over downtown and an army of young tech workers pouring into neighborhoods across the city. In the ’60s, San Francisco was synonymous with the hippie counterculture; in the ’90s, it was the dot-com boom (and eventual bust, in the early 2000s); more recently, it was the ripening of the Bay Area food movement. Now it’s home to such new-establishment icons of the digital economy as Airbnb, Uber and, yes, Twitter. But don’t be fooled by the shiny patina: San Francisco is more than just the physical headquarters of our virtual world. There are some things that haven’t changed, and by themselves, are reason enough to revisit: the mind-boggling views along that glorious waterfront; the Mission’s still-feisty, freaky, welcome-all-comers character; the meandering natural pleasures of Golden Gate Park. Even when classic San Francisco rubs up against new San Francisco, the friction, though at times contentious (Google bus protests, the anti-eviction fight), is also where the community-conscious activist roots of this city are as vital and visible as ever.别眨眼,否则你就会错过“下一秒的”旧金山。你的Twitter首页每刷新一次,这座城市就会自我更新一次。高耸的起重机遍布市区,年轻的科技工作者成群结队地涌入城市的各个角落。上世纪60年代,旧金山是“嬉皮反主流文化”的代名词;到了90年代,这里成为了网络爆炸的发源地(这股热潮最终在21世纪初衰落);近年,湾区的食品运动在这里发展成熟。如今,旧金山是新兴数字经济的大本营,其中的代表包括Airbnb、Uber,当然还有Twitter。不过,别被它光鲜的外表蒙蔽了:旧金山不仅仅是网络虚拟世界的“实体总部”。这里仍有一些始终没变的元素,而这些元素足以成为你故地重游的理由:海滨沿岸令人惊叹的壮丽景色;教会区(Mission)那依旧活跃、古怪又好客的个性;漫步于金门公园(Golden Gate Park),体会大自然的乐趣。当传统与现代碰撞之时,尽管这些擦有时存在争议(比如抵制谷歌员工班车、反驱逐运动),但这正是这座城市中具有社区意识的激进分子的根基所在,它的重要性和显著性也从未消减。 /201512/414905
