>Messi tells Barca he wants to leave
梅西已告知巴萨将离队
Leo Messi has reportedly informed FC Barcelona that he wants to leave the club immediately despite having a 700 million euro release clause in his contract.
据多家媒体报道,梅西已通知巴塞罗那俱乐部,希望立刻离开这家球队,尽管梅西的合约中包含的买断条款解约金为7亿欧元(约合人民币57.26亿元)。
The news was broken on Tuesday by Argentinean TV channel TyC Sports and repeated in the Spanish media, explaining that Messi has sent a registered fax to the club highlighting a clause which allows him to unilaterally rescind his contract at the end of this season.
8月25日, 阿根廷TyC体育台最先爆出这则消息,随后西班牙媒体也报道了此事,并称梅西已通过传真通知俱乐部,希望通过合同中的赛季末单方面解约条款来解除合同。
The Barcelona based "El Mundo Deportivo" newspaper reported that the club has indeed received a fax from Messi but that the clause allowing him to walk away for free expired on June 10.
据总部位于巴塞罗那的《西班牙世界体育报》报道,巴塞罗那俱乐部证实收到了梅西的传真,但能让梅西免费与俱乐部解除合同的条款已于6月10日过期。
However, the striker believes that this is irrelevant because Barca's campaign only ended on Aug 14 following their 8-2 elimination from the Champions League by Bayern Munich.
然而梅西认为这无关紧要,因为巴萨本赛季最后一场比赛是在8月14日,那天巴塞罗那队在欧冠四分之一决赛中2:8不敌拜仁慕尼黑队。
The striker reportedly expressed doubts over his future at the Camp Nou, where he has been since arriving as a 13 year-old, making 731 appearances and scoring 634 goals for the club, in a recent telephone conversation with new coach Ronald Koeman.
据报道,在近日与球队新主帅科曼的电话中,梅西对自己在诺坎普的未来表示疑虑。梅西13岁来到巴塞罗那,为这家球队总计出场731次,打进634球。

>World's 1st floating Apple Store
苹果建首家水上零售店
Apple's worldwide retail network may be struggling during the coronavirus pandemic, but that hasn't stopped the company from indulging in its penchant for pricey-looking, unique, and outlandish exterior design.
苹果的全球零售网络可能在新冠疫情期间变得举步维艰,但这并不能阻止该公司沉迷于昂贵、独特和奇特的外观设计。
The iPhone maker's newest retail location, located in Singapore on the city-state's waterfront and known officially as Apple Marina Bay Sands, can claim a world's first title: it's the only Apple retail shop on the planet that floats on water.
这家iPhone制造商最新的零售店位于新加坡的海滨,正式名称为苹果滨海湾金沙,它号称是世界上唯一一家漂浮在水面上的苹果零售店。
The location, part of the luxury hotel and resort of the same name, is Singapore's third Apple Store.

During the daytime, the new Marina Bay Sands store appears to look like an odd spacecraft of some sort or perhaps some form of futuristic theater.
白天,滨海湾金沙的苹果新店看起来就像是某种奇异的宇宙飞船,亦或是某种未来式剧院。
But at nighttime, when Singapore's iconic skyline is lit in all its glory in the background, the store really comes alive and you can tell the company clearly designed it as an evening fixture best viewed in the dark.
但到了晚上,当新加坡标志性的天际线在背景中熠熠生辉时,这家店立刻变得生动起来,苹果显然是把它设计成在黑暗中观看效果最好的夜景。
The store is Apple's 512th retail shop globally, and it's opening sometime soon.
这家店是苹果在全球的第512家零售店,将于近日开张。
