    Topic: LeBron James Laughs at Your ‘Old' Lakers Memes. After His Nap.   LeBron James has seen the memes and read the punch lines. 詹姆斯看過那些迷因且讀了笑哏。 “The narrative about our age,” he said, “I kind of laugh at it. I actually do really laugh. I'm not just saying that.” 「這些內容都在嘴我們的年齡」,他說,「我有點發噱。事實上我真的有笑,我不是說說而已。」 The Los Angeles Lakers are old. They are the NBA's Traveling Wilburys, an aging rock star collective hoping to produce one more chart-topping album. Dwight Howard and DeAndre Jordan have more mileage between them than a 2003 Honda Civic. Carmelo Anthony, 37, recalled first getting to know James, 36, when they were high school standouts — way back in the previous millennium. At 32, Russell Westbrook is comparatively spry. 洛杉磯湖人隊老了。他們是美國職籃NBA的「漂泊合唱團」,一個老邁搖滾明星的組合,期望再出一張排行榜冠軍專輯。霍華德和德安德魯喬丹的哩程數比一輛2003年本田喜美還多。37歲的安東尼回想初識現年36歲詹姆斯時,兩人是高中球星,而那已是上一個千禧年的往事。相較之下,32歲的衛斯布魯克有活力多了。 “I don't think it's going to be like peanut butter and jelly to start the season,” James told reporters ahead of training camp. “But that's all part of the process.” 「我不認為開季會一帆風順。」詹姆斯在訓練營開始前告訴記者,「不過這都是過程的一部分。」   In his own small way, James reinvented himself, too, by slightly slimming down at this august stage of his career. 詹姆斯也以他的小方法改造自己,在他職業生涯年高德劭的階段瘦一點。 “He's made the decision to come back a little bit leaner,” Rob Pelinka, the team's general manager, said. “And I think that's going to translate in his explosiveness and his quickness.” 「他決定以苗條一點點的狀態回來」,湖人隊總經理佩林卡說,「我認為這將轉化在他的爆發力和速度上面」。 Westbrook, a former league MVP, spent last season with the Washington Wizards before he was traded to the Lakers in August. Westbrook called it a “blessing” to be playing in Los Angeles, where he grew up. 得過最有價值球員的衛斯布魯克,上個球季為華盛頓巫師隊效力,今年8月被交易至湖人。衛斯布魯克說,能在他長大的洛杉磯打球是種「賜福」。 “I think it's because we both understand and know what it takes in order to win, and obviously LeBron knows what it takes to get to that next level,” Westbrook said. 「我認為,因為我們兩個都知道並了解贏球需要什麼,顯然詹姆斯也清楚更上一層樓需要什麼。」衛斯布魯克說。 But the aging process is undefeated, and there are obvious concerns about the Lakers' durability. James, so indestructible for much of his career, has been hampered by injuries in recent years, and Davis limped through the team's abridged playoff appearance last season. For his part, Pelinka sought to downplay the suggestion that the Lakers were brittle by citing the example of Tom Brady, who, at 44, is still quarterbacking football teams to Super Bowls. 但老化的過程難以克服,外界對湖人的續航力也有顯而易見的憂慮。生涯大部分時間都堅不可摧的詹姆斯,近幾年傷痛纏身,戴維斯上個賽季也因傷在季後賽出場時間大減。佩林卡以44歲的美式足球四分衛布雷迪仍能帶隊拿下超級盃冠軍為例,企圖淡化湖人戰力脆弱的聯想。 Amid the doubts and the questions about the Lakers, Anthony can make out a path that leads to a championship ring, which would be his first. There were moments in his career, he said, when he considered the possibility of teaming up with James, one of his closest friends. The opportunity never materialized. Perhaps neither player was ready for that to happen, Anthony said. 在有關湖人的懷疑和疑問中,安東尼有能耐闖出一條通往冠軍戒之路,也將是他的第一枚。他說,生涯中數度考慮和密友詹姆斯同隊的可能性,但從未實現。安東尼說,也許兩人都沒做好準備。 “But here we are now,” he said. “Timing is everything.” 「不過我們現在是隊友了。」他說,「時機比什麼都重要」。Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/5820559   Next Article   Topic: Tom Daley knits away in between dives at Tokyo Olympics   Tom Daley's way of relaxing between dives off the 10-meter tower at the Olympics keeps him in stitches. Not the laughing kind, but the knitting and crocheting kind. 湯姆.戴利在奧運每場10公尺跳台跳水比賽之間的放鬆方式,讓他笑個不停。這裡說的不是笑,而是埋首針線中。 The 27-year-old Brit took up the hobbies just before the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020. During lockdown, he had plenty of time to perfect his skills. 這名27歲的英國人在2020年3月新型冠狀病毒疫情爆發前不久,開始有了這個嗜好。在防疫封鎖期間,有的是時間精進他的技巧。 Daley knits only during the preliminaries of competitions, when there are long stretches between dives, as a way to switch off his mind. 戴利只有在每場比賽間隔時間都很久的初賽階段,藉由織毛線放空。 ''If you stay all the way up here with your energy levels and thinking about the dives,'' he said, ''it ends up becoming quite draining by the end of it.'' 「如果你在這裡一直全神貫注想著跳水的事」,他說,「結果會讓人比到最後相當疲憊。」   Next Article     Topic: Hungarians grab their partners in nation's wife-carrying contest 匈牙利人在該國背老婆大賽中抓住另一半   Some 40 Hungarian husbands, with their wives on their backs, clambered over rough terrain on Saturday in the nation's second wife-carrying contest. 近40位匈牙利老公週六在該國第二屆背老婆大賽中,把他們的老婆扛在背上,攀越崎嶇地形。 A previous race in October attracted only a dozen couples. 前一場辦在10月的比賽,只吸引到12對伴侶。 "We have just emerged from a difficult period due to the coronavirus and we need to go and have fun in the open air," Gergely Guraly, who organised the race, told Reuters. 組織這場競賽的格格利.古拉雷告訴路透,「我們才剛擺脫起於冠狀病毒的一段困難時期,我們需要到戶外開心玩。」 Guraly began preparations in January for the contest, which is said to have origins dating back to the Viking age. 古拉雷1月開始為這場據說起源可追溯到維京時代的比賽做準備。 In modern times, the tradition is particularly established in Finland, where it has taken place since the 1990s. 在現代,這項傳統在芬蘭尤其確立,當地從1990年代開始舉辦。 Estonian races have lent their name to the Estonian style of wife-carrying, with the wife upside down and her feet over her husband's shoulders, rather than a classic piggyback. 愛沙尼亞競賽的名字源自這種愛沙尼亞扛太太的招式,讓太太頭下腳上並把雙腳放在丈夫肩膀上,而非經典的後背式。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1471563; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1473455   Next Article   Topic: Shohei Ohtani makes history in MLB All-Star Game   Japanese player Shohei Ohtani achieved another milestone in the Major League Baseball's (MLB) near-century history, being selected as both a hitter and a pitcher for the All-Star Game. The Los Angeles Angels' “two-way” sensation was among the starting pitchers for the Denver showcase today Taiwan time. 日本選手大谷翔平近日又創下另一項里程碑,成為美國職棒大聯盟(MLB)近百年歷史上,唯一一位同時入選明星賽投手及打者的球員!這位洛杉磯天使隊能投又能打的「二刀流」球星,和其他幾位先發投手一起入選了在丹佛舉行的明星賽,比賽預計在台灣時間今日登場。 Ohtani is currently leading the MLB in home runs, and had already been voted by fans to start as a designated hitter for the game. Early this month, he made history by hitting his 30th homer of the season to break the record by legendary Babe Ruth, who hit 29 homers as a two-way player during the 1919 season. 同時大谷在MLB本季全壘打數保持領先,稍早也已被球迷票選為這次明星賽指定打者。本月初他更刷新歷史,擊出本季個人第三十支全壘打,打破傳奇球星貝比魯斯的紀錄。魯斯曾於一九一九年以「二刀流」的身份,轟出二十九支全壘打。 On July 5, Ohtani hit his 31st homer of the season on his 27th birthday to tie Hideki Matsui's record for most homers in an MLB season by a Japanese-born player. “It makes me happy that I've matched a player I've looked up to since I was little,” Ohtani said. The once-in-a-century player later broke the record with 33 homers, and is ready to dash more records in baseball. 而在七月五日、他二十七歲生日當天,大谷擊出本季個人第三十一轟,追平了由前輩松井秀喜所創下,日籍球員在MLB擊出單季最多支全壘打的紀錄。大谷說︰「能追上我從小到大景仰的選手,這讓我很開心。」這位百年一見的奇才隨後以三十三轟超越前輩的成就,本季勢必將打爆更多棒球紀錄。 Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2021/07/14/2003760791   Next Article:   Topic: Choo Shin-soo becomes latest Korean big leaguer to come home 秋信守成為最新一位回國發展的韓籍大聯盟球員 Choo Shin-soo, a former All-Star outfielder for the Texas Rangers, signed a 2.7 billion contract to play for the SK Wyverns, which will soon be taken over by the retailer Shinsegae Group. 前德州遊騎兵隊全明星外野手秋信守,簽下一紙為SK飛龍隊出戰的27億韓元合約。該隊很快就要被(南韓)零售商「新世界集團」接手。 Following a 16-year big league career, Choo immediately becomes the highest-paid player in Korea Baseball Organization history. The 38-year-old also joins a long list of former Korean major leaguers who began their professional careers outside the country but chose to end them on home soil. 在16年(美國職棒)大聯盟生涯後,秋信守立即成為(南韓職棒)「韓國棒球委員會」史上最高薪球員。這名38歲的老將,亦加入在海外展開其職業生涯,但選擇在家鄉土地上將其畫下句點的一長串前韓籍大聯盟球員名單行列。 But few of those players could match Choo's Major League Baseball credentials. With 218 home runs, 782 RBIs, 157 steals and a .275/.377/.447 slash line over 1,652 games, Choo isn't just the greatest Korean position player in MLB. He is also one of the very best to come from Asia. 但該名單中的那些球員,幾乎都比不上秋信守的大聯盟資歷。出賽1652場累計218發全壘打、782分打點、157次盜壘和打擊率2成75、上壘率3成77、長打率4成47的「打擊三圍」。秋信守不僅是大聯盟最偉大的韓籍「非投手球員」,他也是大聯盟最佳的亞洲球員之一。Source article: https://news.ltn.com.tw/news/world/paper/1433988

    A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:   It's been three years since Taiwan became the first country in Asia to legalize same sex marriage in 2019.   My guest on this episode of Talking Taiwan is Joyce Teng, the Deputy Executive Director of Taiwan Equality Campaign, previously known as the “Marriage Equality Coalition Taiwan.” We talked what's happened since 2019. Surveys and polls conducted over the past three years indicate growing support for LGBTQIA+ issues within Taiwan's society.   However, there are still some additional struggles that same sex married couples experience as opposed to heterosexual married couples in Taiwan. Joyce also touched upon a few issues concerning transgender and nonbinary individuals.   She mentioned three areas in which same sex married couples face some challenges, the first being transnational couples; problems arise for couples of different nationalities when their marriage cannot be legally recognized in Taiwan; the second issue is co-adoption and dealing with Taiwan's adoption procedures, and finally reproductive rights. It's been eye-opening for me to learn about all of this.   These are all complex issues and many of them they could also pose challenges for heterosexual married couples in Taiwan. I only recently learned about a woman's reproductive rights in Taiwan when it comes to freezing her eggs. We'll include some articles on this topic in the Related Links section of this episode.   This episode of Talking Taiwan has been sponsored by NATWA, the North America Taiwanese Women's Association.   NATWA was founded in 1988, and its mission is:   to evoke a sense of self-esteem and enhance women's dignity, to oppose gender discrimination and promote gender equality, to fully develop women's potential and encourage their participation in public affairs, to contribute to the advancement of human rights and democratic development in Taiwan, to reach out and work with women's organizations worldwide to promote peace for all.   To learn more about NATWA visit their website: www.natwa.com   Here's a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:   Taiwan Equality Campaign was previously the “Marriage Equality Coalition Taiwan” How the rights of heterosexual married couples differ from the rights of same sex married couples in Taiwan How heterosexual married couples and single individuals can adopt in Taiwan, but same sex married couple cannot adopt in Taiwan Earlier this year there was a court case that ruled that one of the spouses of a same sex couple, could adopt his spouse's child who had been adopted when the was still single, however this is only one case, and according to the law in Taiwan a same sex spouse is unable to adopt the adopted child of their spouse What is involved with the adoption process in Taiwan and how it could take up to 3-5 years The gap when it comes to reproductive rights for heterosexual women and lesbian women who want to freeze their eggs in Taiwan Reproductive rights of same sex couples in Taiwan How Taiwan has one of the lowest birth rates in the world The government in Taiwan offers subsidies for heterosexual couples to do IVF but not for same sex couples How birth rates in Taiwan tend to be low during the year of the tiger (February 1, 2022 – January 21, 2023 is a tiger year) How Taiwan has changed in the time that Joyce has been working for the Taiwan Equality Campaign and since same sex marriage was legalized in Taiwan Surveys done by the Taiwan Equality Campaign over the past three years indicate increasing support by the general public for same sex couples to adopt, do IVF Surveys done by the Taiwan Equality Campaign show that over time more of the general public have indicated that they have friends identifying as LGBTQIA+; this indicates that LGBTQIA+ individuals are more willing to come out to their family, friends and peers Surveys have also indicated that since the legalization of same sex marriage in Taiwan, LGBTQIA+ individuals are more comfortable to talk about their personal lives and spouses The different types of survey questions asked to gage people's acceptance of same sex couples in Taiwan Whether the general public in Taiwan supports teaching school-aged children about gender equality, sexual orientation and expression How attitudes and acceptance of LGBTQIA+ individuals and issues may be indicative of generational differences The film Small Talk, a documentary film about the filmmaker's difficult relationship with her mother who was a lesbian If having a nonbinary “Digital Minister” in Taiwan, Audrey Tang has had any impact on the general public's views or acceptance of LGBTQIA+ individuals How there is work to be done when it comes to awareness and understanding of transgender and nonbinary individuals in Taiwan The challenges faced by transgender and nonbinary individuals in Taiwan The question of how transgender and nonbinary individuals would like to be identified on their identification cards/documents How the Taiwan Equality Campaign works with local government officials How Taipei's MRT bathroom signs will be gender neutral How Thailand may be the next country in Asia to legalize same sex marriage Advocacy to support LGBTQIA+ activists in other Asian countries How Taiwan can serve as a case study of how the legalization of same sex marriage has impacted society Difficulties faced by same sex transnational couples in Taiwan How the Taiwan Equality Campaign has worked with local levels of government to train civil servants how to deal with LGBTQIA+ identifying individuals How the Taiwan Equality Campaign approaches local governments about implementing LGBTQIA+ sensitivity training   Related Links:

    Der Krieg in der Ukraine wird von vielen Staaten genau beobachtet ‒ aber eine Nation schaut ganz besonders auf den Konflikt, und das ist China. Denn die Volksrepublik hat ähnliche Interessen wie der Kreml. Laut Peking ist Taiwan eine abtrünnige Provinz, die eigentlich zu China gehöre. Ziel ist die Wiedereinigung. Analysten fürchten eine Militärintervention. Sollte die Volksrepublik China Taiwan angreifen, könnte es nach den Worten von US-Präsident Biden zu einem direkten Konflikt mit US-Streitkräften kommen. Und das wäre natürlich ein Albtraumszenario ‒ ein Krieg, bei den sich zwei Atommächte direkt gegenüberstehen.

    Say It Skillfully® is a show that helps you to benefit from Molly Tschang's expert guidance on the best possible ways to speak your mind at work in a positive and productive manner. In Episode 137, Molly talks with early-in-career professionals about their job searches! Molly's first caller, a recent college graduate, is having a tough time getting her foot in the door in children's educational media. Aviva shares how she expected to face rejection, but sees “success in failure”. She realizes finding people to connect with at the companies she's applying to is basically a full-time job itself. They discuss how taking a position that isn't necessarily your “dream job” can be vital for learning skills, showing your value and getting to know yourself. Next, Michael returns to the show after calling in to share his inspiring recent few years in China and Taiwan, where he developed his ability to teach English to 5-year olds! Now back in the states, Michael is exploring different avenues for the next chapter. He shares his strengths that he discovered while overseas, as a leader and in solving problems with people who think very differently than he. Molly helps Michael with potential interview questions, including an example of how he would explain his strengths to make sure that it lands in the best way possible, and the importance of knowing how your strengths connect with the tasks and needs of the job at hand (14:10). Then Alex calls in to share her post-college career journey, working for a tech consulting company for 9 years where she mastered their proprietary software, as well as the struggles of switching to a job in which that software mastery didn't quite translate. Along the way, she was diagnosed with ADHD! Alex explains how, due to her ADHD, she worked extremely well under pressure and dealing with big problems, but struggled to stay productive when things were calm. She goes into depth about her job transitioning process, and opens up about how tough it was working 10-11 hour days then taking online courses after work to beef up her resume and build up her skills. Alex then talks about what she learned about herself during this very worthwhile process. (31:55) Molly's last caller, recent college grad Emma, is working two jobs while searching for a full time role. She calls in a day before an interview to discuss the best ways to present herself as a confident candidate. Emma and Molly role play some interview questions, including articulating her strengths, with examples of situations in which these strengths have come up at work. Molly then helps Emma with the best way to phrase her answer to the dreaded “What is your biggest weakness?” question (42:50). Don't miss these conversations and learn how to navigate work while being invaluable and true to yourself. Molly's thought for the week: ”When everything seems to be going against you, remember—the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” —Henry Ford.

    Lithuania-China relations is an interesting case study for how Beijing deals with small states and how it applies economic pressure on target countries to change policies that it views as damaging to Chinese interests. Tensions in Lithuania-China relations arise from numerous sources, including the decision by Vilnius to withdraw from the 17+1 mechanism between China and Central and Eastern European countries and its agreement to allow Taiwan to establish a representative office in Vilnius under the name Taiwanese Representative Office. In today's episode of China Global, Bonnie Glaser speaks with Ambassador Diana Mickevičienė to discuss the drivers of the Lithuania-China friction as well as the circumstances surrounding her departure from China. Ambassador Mickevičienė currently serves as the Lithuanian ambassador to China, operating in exile from Vilnius.

    The ocean temperature is rising, and that's killing corals. But scientists are finding out that some corals can resist climate change. So if we wanted to make sure that at least some corals survive in the future, which species should we save?  We are at a coral lab to speak to Shashank Keshavmurthy at the Biodiversity Research Center at Academia Sinica in Taiwan.

Someone who has designed a technique she believes can help learners of any language achieve near native accents. Karen Chung from the USA has lived in Taiwan for more than 30 years and for most of that time has worked as a linguistics professor at the National Taiwan University. In 2018 a Ted Talk which she delivered in flawless Mandarin received over a million views and brought her methods to the attention of a large international audience. In the video she explains her accent training technique which she calls the echo method. The method which is based on her own learning experiences takes advantage of our echoic memory. First we listen to a sentence or phrase in our target language, waiting for the audio to replay or echo in our minds, before finally mimicking it out loud. Doing it this way allows us to mimic native speech much more closely than conventional listen and repeat methods. In this podcast, we explore her own language learning journey, how she learned Mandarin to such a high level and why she disagrees with conventional language learning opinion which argues accents don't matter as long as we can more or less make ourselves understood. She also kindly agreed to give me a brief demonstration of her method to help improve my own Mandarin accent.

John Baum chats with Mitchell Institute's Dan Rice; Ken Allen previously with the China Aerospace Studies Institute; Gerald Brown of Valiant Integrated Services; and Thomas Shattuck of Perry World House to better understand the dynamics between China and Taiwan when it comes to contested air sovereignty. Clearly, relations between the two nations are complex and heated. From an air perspective, this increasingly comes to bear as Chinese military aircraft transit through airspace claimed by Taiwan, which includes a special zone known as the air defense identification zone (ADIZ). This sort of action could easily escalate into a flash point. Learn more about these trends and what they mean for broader security dynamics in the Pacific. Credits: Host: Lt Col (Ret.)

    The international adversaries the United States faces haven't changed much since the Cold War. While the technology has evolved, the unconventional war tactics they use have remained largely the same. Now, as Russia threatens war beyond Ukraine, Iran and North Korea renew their threats; and as the Chinese regime threatens Taiwan, the United States is again faced with the possibility of war. Yet, all of these nations have employed methods of war by other means. And the question remains of how the United States should respond. Special training programs in the U.S. military practice to face these types of threats—and among them is the Navy's Fighter Weapons School, known as TOPGUN. To learn more, we speak with James Robb, former TOPGUN commander, retired Navy admiral, and president of the National Training and Simulation Association.   ⭕️ Stay up-to-date with Josh with the Crossroads NEWSLETTER
