Chinese firms give single female employees over 30 ‘dating leave’

Over 30   30岁以上

  

Two Chinese firms are giving single female employees over the age of 30 an additional eight days of annual leave to “go home and date”.

The initiative by the Hangzhou Songcheng Performance and Hangzhou Songcheng Tourism Management firms will only be available to employees who have non-essential roles.

A growing middle class has led to a larger number of Chinese women focusing on their careers and choosing to marry later – or staying single altogether.

 The Moon was hit by a meteorite while you were staring at the ‘Super Blood Wolf Moon’ eclipse

Stargazers watching the eclipse saw a brief white flash on the darker side of the moon that lasted for only a fraction of a second.

This bright flash was made by something incredibly small – experts think the meteorite might have weighed only 22 pounds.

Phone makers are going all-in on foldables, but I’m skeptical

Skeptical 半信半疑(也是“完全不信”的委婉说法)

 

Huawei confirmed that it was working on a foldable phone, Motorola was just granted a patent for one with the Razr label, and a leaked video showed a tri-folding Xiaomi phone.

I’m curious to see if this will be a passing fad, or a mainstream trend in phone design.

It feels like there’s a lot to figure out before foldable handsets go mainstream.

    汉语讲得太多了,建议多讲英语,说少一些汉语。

    末尾用少量单词先试着表达,真的是太棒的建议。日企转欧企后感觉很明显。必须自己努力表达。

    hi,树华,很早以前就听你的节目,感觉非常好,我是一个作外贸进出口行业的人,我们这个行业挺奇怪的,一方面我们需要每天和外国人交流,当然主要是英语交流,每天都在用,但是说实话水平普遍非常低(包括我),这主要是以下造成的:之前的教育呆板;行业内交流范围窄每天就那么几十句,从业后没有特别好的专业语言交流培训尤其是外国人提供的,有,也非常贵都是套路。另一方面,我不觉得学习英语是需要花钱买的,我希望和更多的人交流虽然很多人但是都是生意,没有人会深入浅出的教,希望长期和你们交流,谢谢你的付出,非常感谢!

    Hey ShuHua!I looked up the word 'firm' in Longman Dictionary and it says it is a business or company,especially a SMALL one. So I'm confused.

    来自美国的周树华 回复 @rachel_x5: Interesting! A "firm" is not as big as a "corporation," 可以不是 the smallest kind of company. It's also used differently in different fields.
