>Princess Diana's former apartment
戴妃故居成英文化遗产

Princess Diana's former apartment will be honored as a historic site later this year.
戴安娜王妃的故居将在今年晚些时候成为英国文化遗产。

English Heritage, an organization that manages more than 400 historic sites in the UK, recently announced that it will be installing a special plaque at the London apartment where Diana Spencer lived before she married Prince Charles. Princess Diana is one of six women to be honored with London Blue Plaques installed by English Heritage this year, according to the announcement.
英国文化遗产协会近日宣布,今年将在六座历史建筑旁为六位英国杰出女性悬挂蓝色铭牌,其中包括戴安娜•斯宾塞嫁给查尔斯王子之前居住的这处位于伦敦的科勒恩公寓。该协会管理着英国400多处历史遗迹。

Diana lived in the Coleherne Court apartment with three friends before she was married and joined the royal family.
戴安娜在科勒恩公寓和三位好友一起度过了结婚前的最后时光。

"We are expecting our plaque to Diana, Princess of Wales, to be very popular," Anna Eavis, English Heritage’s Curatorial Director, said in a statement. "She was an inspiration and cultural icon to many, raising awareness of issues including landmines and homelessness, and helping to destigmatize illnesses such as HIV, leprosy and depression."
英国文化遗产协会策展主任安娜•艾维斯在一份声明中说:"这将是一项非常受欢迎的计划。戴安娜激励了很多人,也是很多人的文化偶像。她不仅提高了人们对于地雷与流浪者等问题的认识,还致力于消除人们对于艾滋病、麻风病、抑郁症等疾病的偏见与误解。"

If customers take the cup home, they can also take advantage of Starbucks' partnership with Ridwell, a company that will pick up the reusable cups from your home.
如果顾客把杯子带回家,他们还可以利用星巴克与Ridwell公司的合作,这家公司会从你的家中收回可重复使用的杯子。

Each cup is then cleaned and sanitized and put back into the rotation for another customer to use.

>Drinking coffee before exercise
运动前喝咖啡有助减肥

If you're looking to maximize the amount of fat burned in your next workout, think about having a coffee half an hour before you get started – as a new study suggests it can make a significant difference to fat burning, especially later on in the day.
如果你希望下一次锻炼时最大化地提高脂肪燃烧量,不妨考虑在运动前半小时喝杯咖啡——因为有新研究表明,它可以使脂肪燃烧量明显变化,尤其是在下午。

Researchers found that 3 milligrams of caffeine per kilogram of body weight can boost the rate of fat burning during aerobic exercise, based on results gathered from 15 male volunteers.
研究人员收集了15名男性志愿者的数据后发现,如果按每公斤体重3毫克的量来摄入咖啡因,就可以提高有氧运动中的脂肪燃烧速度。

The coffee dose was shown to increase maximal fat oxidation rate (a measure of how efficiently the body burns off fat) by an average of 10.7% in the morning and 29% in the afternoon.
研究表明,咖啡可以增加最大脂肪氧化率,上午平均增加10.7%,下午增加29%。

"Overall, these results suggest that a combination of acute caffeine intake and exercise at moderate intensity in the afternoon provides the best scenario for individuals seeking to increase whole-body fat oxidation during aerobic exercise," the researchers conclude.
研究人员总结道:“总体来说,研究结果表明,急性咖啡因摄入和下午中等强度的运动相结合,为那些希望在有氧运动中加速全身脂肪燃烧的人提供了最佳方案。”
