The University of California, America’s foremost public-college system, said it would phase out the use of sat scores when deciding whom to admit. A faculty task-force had concluded that the tests were excellent predictors of academic success. But critics say they are unfair on those who cannot afford prepping courses.

美国最重要的公立大学加州大学表示,在决定录取对象时,将逐步取消sat分数。一个教师特别小组得出结论,这些测试是学术成就的最佳预测指标。但批评人士表示,这对那些负担不起预备课程的学生不公平。
Days after he began a new term in office Binyamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, stood trial on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. He has denied wrongdoing and has called the justice system politically biased. Mr Netanyahu also told members of his Likud party that extending Israeli sovereignty over parts of the occupied West Bank was a priority for his new government.
以色列总理本雅明·内塔尼亚胡在开始新任期几天后,就因受贿、欺诈和背信罪受审。他否认自己存在不当行为,称司法系统存在政治偏见。内塔尼亚胡还告诉他的利库德集团成员,扩大以色列对被占领的约旦河西岸部分地区的主权是他的新政府的首要任务。
America accused Russia of sending fighter jets to Libya to support Russian mercenaries fighting on behalf of Khalifa Haftar, a rebellious warlord. General Haftar launched an offensive on the capital, Tripoli, last year but has been pushed back by forces aligned with the internationally recognised Government of National Accord, which is supported by Turkey.
美国指责俄罗斯向利比亚派遣战斗机,以支持俄罗斯雇佣兵为反叛军阀哈利法·哈夫塔(Khalifa Haftar)作战。去年,哈夫塔将军对首都的黎波里发动了进攻,但被与民族团结政府(得到国际承认与土耳其支持)结盟的部队击退。
Authorities in Tanzania charged a comedian, Idris Sultan, after a video on social media showed him laughing at a photograph of the president, John Magufuli, in an oversize suit. Mr Sultan was initially charged with “bullying” the president. In court this was changed to using someone else’s mobile-phone SIM card.
社交媒体上的一段视频显示,喜剧演员伊德里斯·苏尔坦(Idris Sultan)冲着身穿大号西装的总统约翰·马古富里(John Magufuli)的PS照片大笑,随后坦桑尼亚当局对他进行了指控。苏尔坦先生最初被控“恐吓”总统。在法庭上,这一指控被改为使用他人的手机SIM卡。

More lockdown restrictions were eased in England. From mid-June, all shops will be allowed to reopen; outdoor markets from June 1st. The government also announced a UK-wide quarantine on international arrivals from June 8th, including Britons returning from abroad. Ireland, which is in Britain’s common travel area, is exempt.
英国放松了更多的封锁限制。从6月中旬开始,所有商店将获准恢复营业;从6月1日开始户外市场将开门营业。政府还宣布从6月8日起在全国范围内对国际旅客进行隔离,包括从国外返回的英国人。爱尔兰是英国的共同旅游区,因此不受此限制。
