Micro-plastics in sea ice of the Arctic Ocean have been accumulating at an alarming rate, according to a research team from the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI). Seventeen different plastic types were discovered in ice samples gathered during three Arctic expeditions in 2014 and 2015, ranging from shopping bags, food packaging, fishing nets, to nylon and polyester found in synthetic fabrics. "Micro-plastics are now ubiquitous within the surface waters of the world's ocean," sea ice physicist Jeremy Wilkinson commented on AWI's study. That is, no waters are free of micro-plastics.
阿爾弗雷德韋格納極地和海洋研究所(AWI)的研究小組表示,北冰洋海冰中的微塑膠正在以驚人的速度累積。在 2014 年和 2015 年三次北極探險期間收集的冰樣本中發現了 17 種不同的塑膠類型,從購物袋、食品包裝、漁網到合成織物中發現的尼龍和聚酯。海冰物理學家傑里米·威爾金森 (Jeremy Wilkinson) 對 AWI 的研究評論道:“微塑料現在在世界海洋的表層水域中無處不在。”也就是說,沒有一種水是不含微塑膠的。
Less than five millimeters long, about the size of a sesame seed, micro-plastics come in the form of "micro-beads" used in face scrubs and toothpaste, or are created when larger pieces are degraded by temperature changes or ocean wave action. So
small are they that they can easily be ingested by Arctic micro-organisms on which fish feed.
For the study, the AWI research team used a spectrometer to cover the ice cores with infrared light. They then analyzed the radiation reflected by these tiny fragments to trace their likely origins. Samples from the Canada Basin, fed by water from the northeast Pacific via the Bering Strait, were high in polyethylene used in packaging material. The team speculated these particles came mainly from the so-called Great Pacific Garbage Patch- a swirling plastic dump in the ocean now bigger than France, Germany and Spain combined.
在這項研究中,AWI 研究小組使用光譜儀用紅外光覆蓋冰芯。然後他們分析了這些微小碎片反射的輻射,以追蹤它們可能的來源。來自加拿大盆地的樣品,透過白令海峽從東北太平洋注入水,包裝材料中使用的聚乙烯含量很高。研究團隊推測這些顆粒主要來自所謂的太平洋垃圾帶——海洋中的一個旋轉塑膠垃圾場,現在比法國、德國和西班牙的總和還要大。
The contribution of micro-plastics to ocean pollution is unclear. According to environmental group WWF, 8.8 million tonnes of plastic enters the oceans every year. On current trends, warns the UN, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050. Other studies have also recently warned that humans are unknowingly swallowing micro-plastics from shellfish, tap water and bottled water.
微塑膠對海洋污染的影響尚不清楚。據環保組織世界自然基金會稱,每年有 880 萬噸塑膠進入海洋。聯合國警告說,按照目前的趨勢,到 2050 年,海洋中的塑膠數量將超過魚類。

第 61 至 64 題為題組

Saudi Arabia has become the first country to grant a robot citizenship, which can be interpreted as an attempt to promote itself as a place to develop artificial intelligence. The humanoid robot, named Sophia, was regarded as a Saudi citizen in a business event Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh. "Thank you to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I am very honored and proud for this unique distinction," Sophia told the panel moderator Andrew Ross Sorkin. "It is historic to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with citizenship." There then followed an interview during which Mr. Sorkin asked the robot a series of questions, echoing concerns previously raised by Elon Musk that AI could be dangerous if it were to go rogue and turn on humanity. About this, Sophia said that people needed not worry about the rise of AI as depicted in The Terminator, insisting she wanted to use AI only to "help humans live a better life."
沙烏地阿拉伯成為第一個授予機器人公民身份的國家,這可以理解為試圖將自己宣傳為發展人工智慧的地方。在利雅德舉行的未來投資倡議商業活動中,這款名為索菲亞的人形機器人被視為沙烏地阿拉伯公民。 「感謝沙烏地阿拉伯王國。我對這項獨特的榮譽感到非常榮幸和自豪,」索菲亞告訴小組主持人安德魯·羅斯·索金。 “成為世界上第一個獲得公民身份的機器人具有歷史意義。”在隨後的訪談中,索爾金向機器人提出了一系列問題,這呼應了馬斯克先前提出的擔憂,即如果人工智慧失控並攻擊人類,它可能會很危險。對此,索菲亞表示,人們不必擔心《魔鬼終結者》中描繪的人工智慧的崛起,她堅稱自己只想利用人工智慧「幫助人類過上更好的生活」。
While the country might be celebrating the rights it has given to female-appearing robots, quite a few internet users thought the move absolutely outrageous. Soon after Saudi Arabia's Center for International Communication, part of the government's ministry for culture and information, tweeted the announcement, it was met with backlash, with many netizens asking why a robot seemed to have enjoyed more rights than women in the country. Specifically, they noted Sophia addressed the audience in English without the customary headscarf and abaya, a traditional cloak which Saudi women are obliged to wear in public. Also, she was not traveling with a male guardian, a rule of the Saudi guardianship system where every woman must have a male companion with her in public, usually a close family member, who has authority to act on her behalf.

    (A) Critical
    (B) Worried
    (C) Hopeful

(A) Sophia was intelligent enough to thank Saudi Arabia for the honor on Twitter.
(B) Elon Musk once expressed his worry about the rapid development of AI.
(C) Sophia announced her plans to help humans live a better life in the interview.
(D) The act of granting a robot citizenship was fiercely attacked by the UN's Center for International Communication

Introduction & Motivation:

Many foods need to be refrigerated in order to stay fresh and edible. Some foods don't need to be but most, especially dairy products, do. What type of food do you think will mold the fastest when placed in a cabinet together? What type of food will go bad first? It is important to know as some molds can make you very sick if eaten.
Research Question:
Banana / Cheese / Milk / Bread / A cabinet in which to place the samples for one week
Paper and pencil / Camera

Experiment Procedures

  1. First take all your samples and make sure they are not molded yet and that they are still fresh.
  2. Pour the milk in a glass and place it in the cabinet that you have chosen to use for your experiment.
  3. Next take the banana, cheese and bread and place them in all separate dishes.
  4. Then put them in the same cabinet. (It is important for them to all be in the same place for more accurate results because of the temperature of the area.)
  5. Check your samples and take a picture of each sample on a daily basis for a week and record your results in the table below.

The Federer-Nadal rivalry, often referred to as Fedal, is between professional tennis players, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, who currently occupy the two top spots in the ATP Rankings and are widely regarded as the two greatest players of all time. The two went head to head for the first time in 2004 when the Spaniard, then 17 years old, stunned the Swiss ace who was world no. 1 back then. Who, then, would've imagined that these two would go on to not only be among the greatest to have ever graced the sport but also treat the world by producing tennis of the highest quality? In the minds of the fans of the sport, even though the two have left their ever lasting impressions on the game, their ways of doing so have been quite contrasting.
費德勒與納達爾的競爭,通常被稱為“費達爾”,是在職業網球運動員羅傑·費德勒和拉斐爾·納達爾之間進行的,他們目前佔據ATP 排名的兩位前茅,被廣泛認為是有史以來最偉大的兩位球員。 2004年,兩人首次正面交鋒,當時年僅17歲的西班牙人擊敗了世界排名第一的瑞士王牌選手。 1 那時。那麼,誰會想到這兩個人不僅會成為這項運動史上最偉大的人物之一,還會透過生產最高品質的網球來對待世界呢?在球迷心目中,儘管兩人在比賽中留下了深刻的印象,但他們的做法卻截然不同。
Federer, as we all know, is the one who adds ace to grace. His lighter-than-air movements, the effortlessness in his shots and his Godlike backhand makes you wonder if he is even real. Nadal, on the other hand, is very much human. He is a human
who struggles and strives for greatness owing to his determination. When we think of Nadal, what comes to mind is his dominance on clay and his injuries. But what we usually tend to overlook is his unreasonable and futile relentlessness. That is what Rafael is all about. He tries and tries and eventually succeeds.
Over the years, the two have mesmerized the world with their long, tiring yet beautiful rallies, with their powerful yet precise and accurate aces and, above all, their remarkable display of sportsmanship every time they were on either sides of the court. It seems to the fans that both of them needed each other to reach where they are. They needed that worthy opponent who makes them want to do better, and while doing so achieve the unthinkable.
