The theory of time running out was devised by researchers from two Spanish universities trying to explain why the universe appeared to be sping continuously and accelerating.“时间耗尽”理论由两名来自西班牙大学的研究者提出,他们试图解释宇宙为何不断膨胀,为何不断加速。Observations of supernovae, or exploding stars, found the movement of light indicated they were moving faster than those nearer to the centre of the universe.之前,科学家观察超新星或恒星的爆炸之后,发现光的运动频率暗示着它们比那些靠近宇宙中心的恒星运行得更快。But the scientists claimed the accepted theory of an opposite force to gravity, known as dark energy, was wrong, and said the reality was that the growth of the universe was slowing.但是,这两名科学家声称当前流行的“重力相反力”理论,也就是“暗能量”理论是错误的。他们还说,事实上,宇宙的增长速度在减缓。Professor Jose Senovilla, Marc Mars and Raul Vera from the University of the Basque Country and the University of Salamanca said the deceleration of time was so gradual, it was imperceptible to humans.毕尔巴鄂市巴斯克地区大学的琼斯·瑟诺维拉教授和萨勒曼卡大学的劳尔·维拉教授说时间减速是一个逐步的过程,而且人类无法感知。Their proposal, published in the journal Physical Review D, claimed dark energy does not exist and that time was winding down to the point when it would finally grind to a halt long after the planet ceased to exist.他们的理论发表在《物理(基本粒子、场论、宇宙学)》上,文章说宇宙中不存在暗能量。当地球消失后,时间也会一点点变慢,最终完全停止。 /201206/187691

Boeing has forecast that China will overtake the US as the world’s largest aviation market, extending a surge in single-aisle aircraft demand.Randy Tinseth, a Boeing vice-president, said the reordering of the market would occur by 2033. Chinese air travel, as measured by revenue passenger kilometres, is only about half as large as the US and Canada’s combined.In its annual China market forecast, Boeing projected that Chinese airlines would buy 6,000 aircraft worth 0bn in the next 20 years, with single-aisle aircraft accounting for more than two-thirds of demand.The size of China’s fleet is expected to triple, to about 7,000 aircraft, over the same period. Boeing’s previous forecasts have underestimated purchases of single-aisle aircraft. “I don’t think we anticipated the demand in emerging economies and from low-cost carriers,” said Mr Tinseth, whose forecast echoes similar predictions by rival Airbus.The growth of low-cost China carriers is expected to be an important source of demand. In July, China Eastern became the first of the big three airlines to launch a budget carrier.Boeing also expects new international routes to spur sales of the 787 Dreamliner.China Southern and Hainan Airlines took deliveries of their first Dreamliners last year, with Hainan deploying it on a new service from Beijing to Boston.Boeing has not outlined any plans to manufacture aircraft in the country, while China’s own Comac has struggled with product delays. “China is trying to do [what Airbus did in 40 years] in an accelerated manner,” Mr Tinseth said. 波音(Boeing)预测,中国将取代美国成为世界最大的航空市场,单通道客机将因此在更长时间内面临需求激增的局面。波音副总裁兰迪#8226;廷塞斯(Randy Tinseth)说,市场规模排名的这一变化将发生在2033年。按客公里收入(RPK)计算,中国的民航运量仅约为美国和加拿大之和的一半。波音在其对中国市场的年度预测中预计,中国的航空公司会在未来20年里购买6000架客机,总值8700亿美元,其中单通道客机占总需求的三分之二以上。同期,中国的机队规模将扩大至现在的3倍,达到7000架。波音此前的预测低估了单通道客机的购买量。“我认为我们没有预计到新兴经济体和低成本航空公司的需求,”廷塞斯说。他的预测呼应了波音竞争对手空客(Airbus)做出的类似预测。低成本航空公司的增长预计将成为需求的重要来源。7月份,中国东方航空(China Eastern)成为中国三大航空公司中首家设立廉价航空公司的公司。波音还预测,新的国际航线将刺激波音787梦幻客机(787 Dreamliner)的销售。中国南方航空(China Southern)和海南航空(Hainan Airlines)去年接收了它们的首批梦幻客机机型,海航将其用于北京至波士顿的新航班上。波音还没有拟定任何在中国生产飞机的计划,中国本土的中国商用飞机公司(Comac)则在努力解决产品延迟交付的问题。“中国正在努力以一种加速的方式完成(空客在过去40年完成的工作),”廷塞斯说。

China#39;s largest Internet firms have had startling success elbowing their way onto the turf of the state-run banks, but now the country#39;s banks and regulators are pushing back.中国大型互联网企业不仅杀入了国有的地盘,并且取得了令人惊讶的成功,但中国业和监管机构现在开始反击了。The central bank said Monday it would set limits on the amount Chinese can spend using smartphone payment services. In an interview with the official Xinhua News Agency posted to its website, the People#39;s Bank of China said the proposed caps were designed to limit business risks, but it didn#39;t specify what the risks are.中国央行周一说,将对智能手机付务的付款额度设限。中国央行接受官方媒体新华社采访时说,拟此上限的初衷是限制商业风险,但未明说是哪些风险。新华社网站上公布了这一采访稿。The central bank said it hadn#39;t yet determined the size of the limits on mobile spending. It said it had drafted new rules but would weigh input from consumers and Internet firms before finalizing them.中国央行说,尚未确定对移动付额度进行多大规模的限制。该行说已起草了新规定,但在定稿前会考虑消费者和互联网企业的意见。A move to curtail the amounts transferred over mobile-payment services potentially cuts off a multibillion-dollar business for companies such as Alibaba Group Holding, an e-commerce titan, and rival Tencent Holdings Ltd., which have been rushing to release products helping smartphone users shop with their phones. The regulatory blowback comes at a tough time for Alibaba, which is preparing for a listing in the U.S. that could raise as much as billion.限制移动付务转账金额的举措可能会切断电子商务巨头阿里巴巴集团(Alibaba Group Holding)及其对手腾讯控股有限公司(Tencent Holdings Ltd.)等企业规模达数十亿美元的业务。这些企业近来纷纷发布产品,帮助智能手机用户通过手机购物消费。中国监管部门出台此举时,阿里巴巴正面临准备赴美上市的严峻时刻,其上市筹资额最多可能达到150亿美元。Last week, responding to Chinese media reports that the central bank had proposed a cap on mobile payments of 10,000 yuan (roughly ,600) a month, Alibaba Chairman Jack Ma said at a Beijing conference: #39;Sometimes you#39;re not defeated by technology; sometimes it#39;s a document.#39;中文媒体报道称,中国央行提出了每月人民币1万元的移动付限额,上周回应相关报道时,阿里巴巴董事局主席马云(Jack Ma)在北京的一场会议上说,有时候,打败你的不是技术,可能只是一份文件。The big state banks aly have moved to cap the amounts depositors can transfer into online products, actions that drew an exasperated response Sunday from Alibaba#39;s Mr. Ma.中国国有大已经采取行动,限制储户对在线产品的转账金额。此举周日引发马云不满。#39;What determines success in the market shouldn#39;t be the monopolies and those with power, but the consumers,#39; Mr. Ma wrote in a post shared on Alibaba#39;s mobile-messaging application.马云在阿里巴巴旗下的移动短讯应用软件上发帖称:“决定市场胜负的不应该是垄断和权力,而是用户。”Although China#39;s central bank has said repeatedly it supports financial innovation, how it tries to regulate the Internet firms is being watched as an indicator of Beijing#39;s commitment to overhauling state-run enterprises. Economists say subjecting protected state-controlled sectors to more direct competition will be key to spurring consumption and putting China#39;s economy on a healthier footing.虽然中国央行反复表示持金融创新,但外界正在密切关注央行对互联网企业金融业务的监管举措,并以此检验中国政府作出的改革国有企业的承诺。经济学家表示,为国有企业控制的行业引入更多竞争,是刺激消费和促进中国经济健康发展的关键所在。Over the past year, Alibaba and Tencent have attracted tens of billions of dollars by marketing online investment products that feature higher returns than those on savings accounts offered by state banks.过去一年,因为提供比国有存款账户更高的收益率,阿里巴巴和腾讯推出的互联网理财产品吸引了数百亿美元的资金。The success has sent ripples through China#39;s state-dominated and heavily regulated financial industry, as many younger Chinese have transferred their savings from the banks into the online products.许多年轻人用存款账户资金购买了互联网理财产品,这些产品获得的成功在中国国有企业主导、受到严格监管的金融行业引发了震动。On Saturday, China Construction Bank Corp. became the latest of the major banks to impose limits on transfers to mobile products. It issued a cap of 5,000 yuan, or about 0, per transaction -- and a total of 50,000 yuan a month -- for deposits to Alibaba#39;s Yu#39;E Bao fund, meaning #39;Leftover Treasure,#39; according to the bank#39;s customer-service department.上周六,中国建设(China Construction Bank Corp.)也对向互联网理财产品转账设定了额度,成为最近一家采取此类措施的大型。据该行部门称,该行设定了储户向阿里巴巴“余额宝”进行快捷付的额度,单笔最高为人民币5,000元(约为800美元),每月不超过5万元。For Tencent#39;s online product, the limit is 10,000 yuan per transfer and 50,000 yuan a month, the department said.该部门称,对腾讯互联网理财产品的额度为每笔人民币1万元,每月不超过5万元。#39;No one knows who gave the banks the power to hurt depositors#39; rights to distribute their capital,#39; Alibaba#39;s Mr. Ma said in his Sunday post, which was viewed by The Wall Street Journal before it was taken down. #39;No one knows who will regulate the legitimacy of the big state banks to join hands and force out#39; Yu#39;E Bao.阿里巴巴的马云在周日发布的文章中称:“也不知道谁给们权力,可以伤害储户配自己资金的权力。更不知道谁来监管四大‘国手’联合封杀的合法性?”这篇文章随后被删除,在它被删除前《华尔街日报》(The Wall Street Journal)看到了这篇文章。In the past two weeks, the central bank has also temporarily suspended online payments using QR codes -- which enable fast recognition of transactions -- and virtual credit cards.过去两周,中国央行还暂时禁止使用二维码进行网上付和虚拟信用卡业务。二维码可以加快网上交易确认。The bank also has suggested that online investment products could be forced to hold reserves on the funds that they attract -- much like banks must do on their deposits.另外,中国央行还暗示,可能要求互联网理财产品像存款那样留存准备金。 /201403/281823
