LONGDONGTAIWAN’S NORTHERN PARADISE

北臺灣無敵海景天堂-龍洞

 

【摘要2020.6.2.蘋果】

The cliffs of Longdong are great to look at, but even better to climb. Extending straight out of the clear blue ocean, the 30-meter sandstone cliffs are perfect for rock climbers of all levels.

Then there is the activity of diving at Longdong Ocean Park—the area’s other great natural attraction, which is sure to be a delight for divers. If you love natural wonders and are looking to escape the usual crowds, don’t miss out on Longdong.

龍洞的懸崖峭壁不但美不勝收,攀爬起來更是精彩絕倫。三十公尺高的砂岩峭壁從湛藍大海中陡然升起,非常適合各種程度的攀岩者。接著在龍洞灣海洋公園裡還有潛水活動 —— 這是該區另一處絕佳的天然賣點,絕對會讓潛水者心曠神怡。如果你喜歡自然奇景,並期望遠離隨處可見的人潮,千萬不要錯過龍洞這個景點。

Covid-19’s unlikely victimnew emojis

武漢肺炎不太可能的受害者:新表情符號

【摘要2020.6.2.自由】黃靖媗

Covid-19 has taken so much from us, but now it’s come for our emojis too.

武漢肺炎從我們身邊帶走許多東西,現在連表情符號也將離我們而去。

As a result of the global pandemic, the Unicode Consortium, which sets standards for digital typography, has been forced to delay the next set of updates, from March 2021 until September 2021.

受全球大流行影響,設立數位排版標準的「統一碼聯盟」(The Unicode Consortium)已經被迫將下次更新,從20213月延後到20219月。

That will have a knock-on effect for OS at Apple and Google, who will struggle to implement the new designs on their normal timescale. All of which means that 2021 might see no brand new emojis.

這還會連帶影響到蘋果與Google的作業系統,讓它們難以按照正常時間表推出新設計。這一切意味著2021年可能看不到新的表情符號。

That’s more of a hit than it might seem. On an emotional level, the rollout of new emojis is important people who want to represent themselves in the lingua franca of the 21st century. And on a technical level, the pictograms are an important carrot dangled by the smartphone manufacturers to get people to go through the effort of installing software updates, which are crucial to protect users from security vulnerabilities and hacking attacks.

這件事情的影響比表面上更深遠。從情感層面來講,新表情符號的推出,對於想要透過21世紀通用語言展現自我的人們很重要。而在技術層面上,這些符號是智慧型手機廠商懸掛的重要紅蘿蔔,藉此誘使民眾安裝軟體更新,是防止用戶遭遇資安漏洞與駭客攻擊的關鍵。
