>US Senate acquits Trump美参院宣告特朗普无罪

US President Donald Trump was acquitted on Wednesday by the Senate after the chamber voted down both articles of impeachment against him that the House approved late last year.美国国会参议院5日否决了针对总统特朗普的两项弹劾条款,宣告特朗普无罪。众议院去年年底表决通过了这两项弹劾条款。

Senators voted 52 to 48 to reject the first charge of abuse of power, and 53 to 47 against the second charge of obstruction of Congress. 参议院以52对48的投票结果否决了特朗普滥用职权的指控,以53对47的投票结果否决了他妨碍国会的指控。

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who presided over the Senate trial of Trump's impeachment, announced the votes, saying that they are not enough to convict the president and remove him from office. 主审弹劾案的最高法院首席大法官罗伯茨宣布了投票结果,称认为总统有罪的票数不够,特朗普未被定罪,将不会被免职。

The Democratic-led House impeached Trump in December last year after an inquiry triggered by a whistleblower complaint that raised concerns about the White House's interactions with Ukraine.去年12月,民主党主导的众议院在对总统进行完弹劾调查后决定弹劾特朗普,此事的导火索是一名举报者的爆料引发人们对白宫"通乌门"的担忧。

>UK to ban petrol cars英国2035年禁售燃油车

Britain will ban the sale of new petrol, diesel and hybrid cars from 2035, five years earlier than planned. 英国将自2035年起禁售新的汽油车、柴油车及混合动力车,比此前计划的时间提前了5年。

The change comes after experts said 2040 would be too late if the UK wants to achieve its target of emitting virtually zero carbon by 2050. 专家表示,如果英国要在2050年前实现几乎零碳排放的目标,那么在2040年再实施禁售令将为时已晚,政府随后对禁售时间做出了修改。

People will only be able to buy electric or hydrogen cars and vans, once the ban comes into effect. 一旦禁令生效,人们将只能购买电动、氢动力汽车和货车。

The UK is one of many countries looking to end the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles. 英国是众多寻求停止销售汽油和柴油车的国家之一。

At the start of January, the Irish government announced plans to ban the sale of "fossil fuel cars" by the year 2030, while Denmark has also proposed a phaseout of new diesel and petrol car sales in 2030.今年1月初,爱尔兰政府宣布计划于2030年前禁售"化石燃料汽车",丹麦也提出要在2030年逐步停止销售新的柴油和汽油汽车。

A total of 761 patients have been enrolled in the trials, which will adopt a randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled study method.
