特朗普首次戴口罩公开露面 | 一周看点
US President Donald Trump has worn a mask in public for the first time since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
The president was visiting the Walter Reed military hospital outside Washington, where he met wounded soldiers and health care workers.
“I’ve never been against masks but I do believe they have a time and a place,” he said as he left the White House.
He has previously said that he would not wear a mask and mocked Democratic rival Joe Biden for doing so.
But on Saturday he said: “I think when you’re in a hospital, especially in that particular setting, where you’re talking to a lot of soldiers and people that, in some cases, just got off the operating tables, I think it's a great thing to wear a mask.”
The change of tone came as the US recorded 66,528 coronavirus cases on Saturday, a new daily record.
President (Donald Trump) - $400,000
Holding the nation’s highest office comes with some nice financial perks, the most obvious of which is a $400,000 annual salary. Along with that tidy sum, the president also gets a $50,000 expense allowance each year, a $100,000 travel account and $19,000 for entertainment, according to CNBC. Every president since 2001, when George W. Bush took office, has earned this amount.
Vice President (Mike Pence) - $230,700
Like his predecessor, Joe Biden, Vice President Mike Pence makes $230,700 every year. That number has been the same since 2010. Pence was due for a slight raise in 2019 that would’ve given him $243,500 a year but that bump was frozen in light of the government shutdown that was happening at the time. The veep has joked that he’s thrifty, despite his respectable paycheck, saying he buys his suits two for one.
Scientists in Italy are investigating the mysterious appearance of pink glacial ice in the Alps, caused by algae that accelerate the effects of climate change.意大利的科学家正在调查阿尔卑斯山中出现粉红色冰川的神秘现象。这是由藻类所引起的，而这种藻类可以加剧气候变暖所带来的影响。
There is debate about where the algae come from, but Biagio Di Mauro of Italy’s National Research Council said the pink snow observed on parts of the Presena glacier is likely caused by the same plant found in Greenland.
关于藻类的来源存在争议，但意大利国家研究委员会委员Biagio Di Mauro表示，在普雷塞纳冰川部分区域观察到的粉色积雪可能是由格陵兰岛上发现的同一种植物引起的。
美国移民及海关执法局（Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE）周一宣布，从今年秋季开始，如果大学完全改以网络授课，国际留学生将不能继续留在美国，除非他们采取其他措施，比如转到其他面对面授课的课程。
One of the biggest unknowns to arise from the COVID-19 pandemic is whether or not students of all ages will be able to return to classrooms come the new academic year. Foreign students hoping to pursue their degrees at U.S. colleges and universities have had some of their questions answered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) today. The guidance issued by ICE varies depending on whether the school is offering courses online, in person, or in some hybrid of the two. And it gets more complicated from there.
For example, if a school is offering classes online only, ICE will allow non-U.S. students to take a full course load, but they have to stay in their home country to do so.
If they’re already in the U.S., they must either transfer to a different school that offers in-person classes, or they have to leave and go back home to take their classes.
