🔴Thursday January 28th 2021 🔵2021年1月28日星期四 1️⃣Rohingyas in Bangladesh: never consulted… 身在孟加拉的羅興亞人:從未被徵詢過… Bangladesh said it would move up to 3,000 more Rohingya Muslim refugees to a remote island in the Bay of Bengal this week. Around 3,500 people have been relocated to Bhasan Char since December. Human-rights groups say that the island is flood-prone and unsuitable; Bangladeshi officials say the move is necessary to reduce overcrowding in camps on the mainland. 孟加拉 (Bangladesh,位於南亞) 表示本週將把多達三千名羅興亞穆斯林難民轉移到孟加拉灣的一座偏遠島嶼上。自 (去年) 12月以來,已約有 3500人被安置到 Bhasan Char (這座島嶼) 上。人權組織表示該島容易遭受洪災侵襲、不宜居住。孟加拉官員則解釋此舉對於減少 (孟加拉) 本土難民營之過度擁擠情況為必要措施。 2️⃣Boeing’s 2020: DISASTER!!! 美國波音公司的2020年:慘不忍睹! Boeing reported a net loss of almost $12bn for 2020. Reduced air travel due to covid-19 caused a slump in the American planemaker’s deliveries, and its 737 MAX aircraft were mostly grounded after two crashes in 2018 and 2019. Yesterday Europe’s aviation regulator became the latest to clear the 737 MAX to fly again. China, which accounts for a quarter of sales, is yet to approve it. 美國波音公司的報告稱 2020年之淨虧損將近 120億美元。由於新冠病毒造成了飛航旅行的減少,進而導致該飛機製造商 (波音) 之 (新機) 交付量下降,再加上其大部分的 737 MAX 機型在 2018年以及 2019年的兩次墜機事故後被停飛。在昨天,歐洲的飛航監管機構予波音 737 MAX 客機復飛。然而,佔波音銷售額四分之一的中國仍尚未批准 (737 MAX的) 復飛。 3️⃣Apocalypse now? The UN secretary-general’s agenda 現代啟示錄? 聯合國秘書長的議程 Every January the UN secretary-general delivers what amounts to a state-of-the-world address. Last year António Guterres summoned an apocalyptic “four horsemen” threatening the planet: geopolitical tensions, the climate crisis, global mistrust and the dark side of technology. That was before a fifth, covid-19, went on its global rampage. Today Mr Guterres is likely to lament the world’s fragility in the face of disease and division, but also to stress how these can be overcome through international co-operation and a green recovery. At least one apocalyptic worry is gone: the fear that a misstep could upset Donald Trump and lead America, by far the biggest contributor to the UN’s budget, to pull out on a whim. Joe Biden, unlike the president he replaced, is a believer in multilateralism. But Mr Guterres, who is sometimes criticised for pulling his punches, will still want to play it safe: he has his eye on a second five-year term. 每年一月,聯合國秘書長都會發表形同「全球版國情咨文」的演說。在去年,聯合國秘書長古特瑞斯 (Antonio Guterres) 在 (聯合國大會開幕的) 演說時引用了聖經「天啟四騎士」(譯註:被記載在新約聖經《啟示錄》第六章,當中的四騎士在傳統上被解釋為瘟疫、戰爭、饑荒和死亡,而其出現象徵末日之到來、危及人類的共同未來) 來指稱目前全球所遭受的四個威脅:地緣政治的緊張局勢、氣候危機、全球間的互不信任以及科技的黑暗面。後來第五個騎士出現了:在全球蔓延的新冠病毒。在今天,秘書長古特瑞斯的演講預計會先哀悼全球面對疾病和分裂的脆弱性,但同時也將強調如何通過國際合作以及綠色復甦 (譯註:在新冠疫情後,優先採取符合公益且永續經營的經濟重整方案) 來克服這些難關。不過值得慶幸的是,至少其中一個對末日的擔憂消失了:(以往各國) 唯恐一時的失誤會讓 (前美國總統) 川普不開心,並導致美國這個迄今為止對聯合國預算之最大捐獻國在衝動下退出聯合國。拜登與他所取代的總統不同,他是多邊主義的奉行者。古特瑞斯雖常遭批評做人太過小心翼翼、怕得罪人,但他仍想打安全牌,畢竟他將尋求第二個 (聯合國秘書長之) 五年任期。
