Rise of stay-at-home dads
半数男性愿当全职奶爸



Married men outnumber women when it comes to having a supportive attitude toward stay-at-home fathers, showed a recent survey by the China Youth Daily. Of the 1,987 married people surveyed, 52.4% of male respondents are supportive of men being a full-time caregiver of children, whereas the figure among women was slightly lower, standing at 45.8%. 
《中国青年报》近期的一项调查显示,已婚男性赞成全职奶爸的比例高于已婚女性。这项对1987名已婚青年进行的一项调查显示,52.4%的受访男性对全职奶爸持赞成态度,而对全职奶爸持赞成态度的女性比例略低,为45.8%。


"The fact that dads are willing to be more involved in their children's lives shows that the traditional mentality of 'career husband and domestic wife' is changing," said Zhang Baoyi, a professor on sociology at the Tianjin Academy of Social Sciences, adding that society is accepting diverse values and ways of parenting.

天津市社会科学院社会学教授张宝义认为,父亲愿意更多地参与育儿活动,体现了"男主外、女主内"的传统理念正在变化,社会对多样化价值观和育儿方式的接受度越来越高。



Amazon rainforest on fire

亚马逊雨林已燃烧三周

网友喊话贝佐斯去救火



Known as the "Lung of the Earth", the Amazon rainforest is on fire for three weeks, and people are asking Jeff Bezos to do something about it. People around the world are taking to social media to voice their concerns about the world's largest tropical rainforest.

被称作"地球之肺"的亚马逊雨林已经持续燃烧了三个星期,人们希望杰夫•贝佐斯做点什么。全球各地的人们通过社交媒体表达他们对这片全世界最大热带雨林命运的担忧。


Many of them are specifically asking Bezos for help: After all, he's the founder and CEO of e-commerce giant Amazon. Bezos' 865.5 billion dollar company gets its name from the Amazon river, which winds its way through the South American rainforest. Bezos has not publicly commented on the fires. 

许多人喊话电商巨头亚马逊公司的创始人兼首席执行官贝佐斯寻求帮助。贝佐斯创建的公司以蜿蜒于南美洲雨林的"亚马逊河"的名字命名,如今公司市值已达8655亿美元。贝佐斯尚未对火灾公开作出回应。


More than 74,000 fires have been recorded in the Amazon Rainforest since January 2019 and over 800,000 hectares of forest have now been turned into ashes.

今年1月以来,亚马逊雨林发生了超过7.4万次野火,过火面积已经超过80万公顷。



Mortgage rate based on LPR

个人住房贷款利率'换锚'



The People's Bank of China (PBOC) announced Sunday that it will replace the loan benchmark interest rate with the loan prime rate (LPR) as a benchmark for setting the interest rate of newly issued commercial individual housing loans. Starting from Oct 8, the interest rate of newly issued commercial individual housing loans will be based on last month's LPR of the corresponding term, while certain basis points will be added, the PBOC said in a statement. 

25日,中国人民银行宣布新发放商业性个人住房贷款利率的定价基准将由贷款基准利率变换为贷款市场报价利率(LPR)。央行发布的公告表示,自10月8日起,新发放商业性个人住房贷款利率以最近一个月相应期限的LPR为定价基准加点形成。


The housing loan interest rate for first-time buyers should not be lower than the LPR of the corresponding term, while that for second-time buyers should not be lower than the combined level of the LPR and 60 basis points. Housing loan contracts already inked or in implementation will not be affected by the new rules. 

首套个人住房贷款利率不得低于相应期限LPR,二套个人住房贷款利率不得低于相应期限LPR加60个基点。存量个人住房贷款利率不受新政影响。
