从合肥到南昌,
高铁上睡着了,
累是真的累,
又是近一个月上课,
中间没有一天休息,
很多时候是9个小时的课,
今天好险,差点没赶上发文章!
语音,明天补上!

今天的句子:
In a move that could provide some income for homeless people and clean up the streets, the Catalan government is looking at paying €4 ($4.25) to anyone who hands in a pack’s-worth of cigarette ends at a recycling point. The idea isn’t to generate income but to reduce the environmental impact of these products. It is hoped that one day this measure will cease to be necessary because the problem will have disappeared.

思考题:

Cigarette butt recycling scheme aims to stub out waste in Catalonia

烟头回收计划旨在清除加泰罗尼亚的垃圾

Source: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/may/20/cigarette-butt-recycling-scheme-aims-to-stub-out-waste-in-catalonia 

背景:西班牙加泰罗尼亚政府正在考虑一项烟头回收计划,拟向回收者提供每盒4欧元的奖励,资金投入将来自于针对烟草加征的税款。此计划若通过,那么每包烟的价格将上涨到原来的两倍,街头的流浪者则能通过拾烟头获得小额却稳定的收入。1982年,纽约市曾针对塑料瓶和易拉罐颁布过类似的法规,起到了非常好的街道清理效果。根据欧盟的数据,烟头目前已是欧洲沙滩上第二常见的一次性塑料制品;环保组织海洋保护协会表示,进入海洋的所有垃圾中,烟头是数量最大的。
