The first human patient implanted with a brain-chip from Neuralink appears to have fully recovered and is able to control a computer mouse using their thoughts, the startup’s founder Elon Musk said late on Monday.

首位接受Neuralink腦晶片植入的人類病患似已完全康復,並能夠用思想控制電腦滑鼠,該新創公司創辦人馬斯克週一晚間表示。

"Progress is good, and the patient seems to have made a full recovery, with no ill effects that we are aware of. Patient is able to move a mouse around the screen by just thinking," Musk said in a Spaces event on social media platform X.

「進展良好,病患似乎已完全康復,我們並未察覺到任何不良影響。病患能夠僅憑思考就在螢幕上移動滑鼠」,馬斯克在社群媒體平台X的「空間」活動中說。

Musk said Neuralink was now trying to get as many mouse button clicks as possible from the patient.

馬斯克表示,Neuralink現在正在嘗試讓病患儘可能多地點擊滑鼠按鈕。

The firm successfully implanted a chip on its first human patient last month, after receiving approval for human trial recruitment in September

該公司在去年9月獲得人體試驗招募許可後,上個月成功地為其首位人類病患植入一顆晶片。

The study uses a robot to surgically place a brain-computer interface implant in a region of the brain that controls the intention to move, Neuralink has said, adding that the initial goal is to enable people to control a computer cursor or keyboard using their thoughts.

The Flatiron, the storied office building in the heart of Manhattan that has recently fallen on hard times, will be converted into luxury housing, its owners announced on Thursday.

這幢位於(美國紐約市)曼哈頓中心地區、近來陷入困頓的知名辦公大樓的所有人週四宣布,「熨斗大樓」將改建為豪宅。

The proposed redevelopment by the new owners is aimed at starting a second life for the Flatiron and moving past a dramatic period in which its fate seemed uncertain. In March, a little-known buyer won an auction for the building, only to disappear without paying.

這項由該大樓新所有人提出的重建計劃,目的在於為「熨斗大廈」開啟新生,以及揮別該大樓看似命運未卜的一段戲劇性時期。(去年)3月,一位鮮為人知的買家在該大樓的拍賣會中得標,但卻沒付款便銷聲匿跡。

The building’s future as housing began to take shape this week when the Brodsky Organization, a residential developer, bought a stake in the 22-story, triangular-shaped tower on Fifth Avenue.

在住宅開發商「布羅茨基組織」買下這幢位於第五大道的22層樓的三角形塔樓的股份後,「熨斗大樓」改為住宅的未來在本週逐漸成形。

The Belgian coastal town of De Panne organised the third European seagull screeching championship, where a jury crowned the best imitation of the bird’s distinctive shriek.

比利時海邊小鎮德帕內舉辦第3屆歐洲海鷗叫聲錦標賽,由評審團為模仿這種鳥類特殊叫聲最像的人加冕。

Around 50 participants took part in the contest including first-timers and returning participants. Each was judged by a professional jury which awarded 15 points for how well they imitated the seagull’s sound and five points for their behaviour.

約50名參賽者參與這場比賽,包括首次和再次參賽者。每位選手都會由一個專業評審團評分,其中15分評他們模仿海鷗叫聲的相像程度,5分評行為舉止。

Participating for the first time, Yarmo, a 21-year old architecture student from Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, won the crown for the best seagull sound.

來自荷蘭愛因霍芬的21歲建築系學生亞爾莫,初登場就奪下最佳海鷗叫聲桂冠。

"We thought why not get more sympathy for those seagulls because they are part of the coast, there is no coast without seagulls," Jan Seys, president of the jury and head of communications of the Flanders Marine Institute, told Reuters.

評審團主席兼法蘭德斯海洋研究所公關主任顏恩‧賽斯告訴《路透》:「我們認為,何不多多同情那些海鷗?因為牠們也是海岸的一份子,有海岸就有海鷗。」

It is already a disgusting habit. But now scientists say picking your nose could raise your risk of catching Covid too.

這已經是一個噁心的習慣了。但現在科學家表示,挖鼻恐也會增加感染「冠狀病毒病」(即武漢肺炎)風險。

A study of healthcare workers in the Netherlands found nose pickers were nearly three times more likely to catch the virus than those who avoided the habit.

一項針對荷蘭醫護人員的研究發現,挖鼻孔者感染病毒的可能性,幾乎是那些避免這種習慣的人的3倍。

Of all participants, those who picked their nose daily or weekly were most likely to get an infection.

在所有參與者中,那些每天或每週挖鼻孔的人最有可能感染。

One in five nose pickers tested positive for the virus during the seven-month study overall, they said, compared to less than one in 20 among those who did not.

他們說,在為期7個月的研究中,5分之1的挖鼻孔者的病毒檢測呈陽性,而在那些沒有檢測出陽性的人中,這一比例不到20分之1。

Researchers suggested nose picking puts someone at higher risk of infection because it ’facilitates’ the transfer of the virus from hands to the nasal canal.

Dana Dolan was driving through her small Nevada hometown when she thought she had come upon a gory crash. The ground surrounding Elko’s stretch of Interstate 80 looked as if it had been covered in blood. As the red color shifted and moved, she realized instead it was an infiltration of crickets, some bigger than her thumb.

丹娜‧杜蘭開車穿過她居住的內華達州小鎮時,她以為自己遇到一場血淋淋的車禍。埃爾科鎮所在的80號州際公路周圍的地面,看起來像是被鮮血覆蓋。隨著紅色的轉變和移動,她意識到這是蟋蟀入侵,有些蟋蟀比她的拇指還大。

Dolan said,“it’s almost like a biblical plague,” laughing at the absurdity of the situation that is playing out in Elko, where she’s lived for six years.

杜蘭表示,「這幾乎就像聖經中的瘟疫一樣」,並嘲笑埃爾科鎮發生的荒謬情況。她在當地生活了6年。

Tens of thousands of Mormon cricket eggs buried about an inch deep in the soil began to hatch in late May and early June. For weeks, the red critters have been invading swaths of northern Nevada and causing chaos, said the state’s longtime entomologist Jeff Knight.

數以萬計埋在土壤中約1英吋深的摩門蟋蟀卵,在5月底和6月初開始孵化。內華達州資深昆蟲學家傑夫‧奈特表示,幾週以來,這些紅色生物一直入侵內華達州北部的大片地區,並造成混亂。

The big red bugs leave behind a stench so horrible, akin to burning flesh, that it forces residents to plug their noses while driving.

這些紅色的大蟲子留下一種非常可怕的惡臭,類似燒焦的肉,迫使居民在開車時掩住鼻子。

Spanish high court of the region of Valencia has ruled in favor of a man who was fined for walking naked through the streets.

西班牙瓦倫西亞高等法院裁決,一名男子因裸體上街行走而遭罰款的控訴不成立。

In a statement, the high court of Valencia said it had struck down an appeal against a lower court decision to annul fines handed out to the man for being naked in the streets of Aldaia.

瓦倫西亞高等法院在聲明中指出,該男子在阿爾達亞鎮街上裸體而遭罰款,地方法院已判決予以撤銷,結果卻遭上訴,最後高院決定駁回上訴。

Alejandro Colomar, 29, was filmed arriving at court wearing just a pair of hiking boots before being ordered to put more clothes on to enter the building. At his trial, he argued that the fines infringed on his right to ideological freedom.

29歲的亞歷航德羅‧科洛馬被拍到僅穿著登山靴到達法院,之後被要求多穿一些衣服才能進入。他在在法庭上主張,罰款侵犯他的意識形態自由權利。

"The fine doesn’t make any sense," he said. "They accused me of obscene exhibitionism. According to the dictionary, that implies sexual intent and has nothing to do with what I was doing."(Reuters)

他說:「罰款毫無道理。他們指控我是猥褻的暴露狂,但字典定義顯示,該詞彙有性企圖的涵義,跟我做的事八竿子打不著。」(路透)

A woman taking a stroll on a California beach found something unusual sticking out of the sand: a tooth from an ancient mastodon.

一名在加州一處海灘散步的女子發現砂土中露出一個不尋常的東西:一顆古乳齒象牙齒。

But then the fossil vanished, and it took a media blitz and a kind-hearted jogger to find it again.

但之後,該化石突然不見,透過媒體熱烈報導以及一名善心慢跑者的協助再度找到它。

Jennifer Schuh found the foot-long tooth sticking out of the sand on Friday at the mouth of Aptos Creek on Rio Del Mar State Beach.

珍妮佛‧舒赫週五在里約德馬州立海灘的阿普托斯溪口處發現這顆從砂土中冒出的1英尺長牙齒。

“I was on one side of the creek and this lady was talking to me on the other side and she said what’s that at your feet,” Schuh recounted. “It looked kind of weird, like burnt almost.”

「我在溪的一邊,而這位女士在另一邊跟我說話,她說,你腳邊是什麼,」舒赫回憶說。「它看起來有點怪異,幾乎像是燒焦」。

A son of Libya’s late leader Moammar Gadhafi, who has been held in Lebanon for more than seven years, began a hunger strike Saturday to protest his detention without trial, his lawyer said.

利比亞已故領導人穆安瑪爾‧格達費一名兒子已在黎巴嫩被關押了7年多,其律師說,他週六開始絕食,抗議未經審判就被拘留。

Hannibal Gadhafi has been held in Lebanon since 2015 after he was kidnapped from neighboring Syria where he had been living as a political refugee. He was abducted by Lebanese militants demanding information about the fate of a Shiite cleric who went missing in Libya 45 years ago.

漢尼拔‧格達費自2015年以來一直被關押在黎巴嫩,此前他曾做為政治難民從鄰國敘利亞被綁架。他被黎巴嫩武裝分子綁架,要求他提供45年前在利比亞失蹤的什葉派神職人員的情報。

Gadhafi was later taken by Lebanese authorities and has been held in a Beirut jail without trial.

格達費後來被黎巴嫩當局帶走,未經審判被關押在貝魯特監獄。

Attorney Paul Romanos told The Associated Press that his client started the hunger strike Saturday morning and “he is serious and will continue with it until the end.” Romanos did not go into details of the case as he was not authorized to speak about it to the media.

律師保羅‧羅曼諾斯告訴美聯社,他的委託人週六早上開始絕食抗議,「他很認真,並將持續到最後。」羅曼諾斯沒有詳細說明此案,因為他沒有被授權向媒體談論此事。

Romanos said his client suffers from back pain due to being held in a small cell for years without being able to move or exercise. (AP)

Danish painters in the 19th century may have turned to an unusual source for some of their supplies: breweries.

19世紀的丹麥畫家可能轉向一個不尋常的供應來源:啤酒廠。

Researchers examined paintings from the Danish Golden Age and found traces of yeast and grains. That suggests painters were turning to byproducts from local breweries to prepare canvases.

研究人員檢查丹麥黃金時代的畫作,發現酵母和穀物的痕跡,表明畫家們正轉向當地啤酒廠的副產品來準備畫布。

Study author Cecil Krarup Andersen said they went into the project looking for glue made from animals.

研究作者塞席爾‧克拉魯普‧安徒生表示,他們參與這項計畫,是為了尋找用動物製成的黏著劑。

“Then, by surprise, we found something completely different,” said Andersen, a paintings conservator at the Royal Danish Academy.

Winter waves in the Sea of Okhotsk have strengthened by 12 to 15 percent on average per decade since the 1980s as global warming has shrunk flow-blocking sea ice and drift ice, data showed.

數據顯示,隨著全球暖化讓阻礙海流的海冰與流冰減少,鄂霍次克海冬季海浪自1980年代以來,平均每10年增強12%到15%。

Shinsuke Iwasaki, a researcher of

the Sapporo-based Civil Engineering Research Institute for Cold Region, used three types of observation data provided from Japan, the United States and Europe to run simulations of waves over the past 40 years in the Sea of Okhotsk from December to February.

總部設在(日本北海道)札幌的寒地土木研究所研究員岩崎慎介,利用日美歐提供的3種觀測數據,模擬過去40年從12月到2月的鄂霍次克海海浪。

Sea ice and drift ice can naturally dampen the force of waves. But the shrinking ice could also possibly reduce sea-level pressure, resulting in stronger sea surface winds in surrounding areas, according to Iwasaki.

海冰與流冰能自然抑制波力。但岩崎說,冰量減少也可能降低海平面氣壓,導致周邊地區的海面風更強勁。

A self-exiled Chinese businessman charged in a $1 billion fraud case will remain behind bars after a federal judge rejected a proposed $25 million bail package Thursday, saying there was clear and convincing evidence he would remain an economic threat and a flight risk if he were freed.

一名在一樁10億美元詐欺案中被起訴的自願流亡中國富商,在法官週四拒絕一項2500萬美元交保申請案後,將繼續遭監禁。法官說,有清楚且令人信服的證據顯示,他若交保仍將構成經濟威脅,並有逃亡之虞。

Judge Analisa Torres said in a written order that she didn’t trust that Guo Wengui would obey court orders if released, even with strict bail conditions.

法官安娜麗莎‧托雷斯在書面命令中說,就算有嚴格保釋條件,她也不信任郭文貴若獲得交保會遵守法院命令。

Guo was arrested last month on charges including wire and securities fraud.

郭文貴上個月因被控電信和證券詐欺被捕。

Officials at a hospital in western Germany have expressed regret after it emerged that one of their surgeons got a cleaner to assist in a toe amputation.

德國西部一家醫院主管,在爆出他們的一名外科醫師讓一位清潔工協助進行一起腳趾截肢手術後,表示遺憾。

Public broadcaster SWR reported that the incident at the Mainz University Hospital, which happened in 2020, didn’t result in any complications to the patient but the doctor has since been fired.

公共廣播公司「西南廣播電視台」(SWR)報導,這起發生在2020年美茵茲大學附設醫院的事件,並沒有導致病人出現任何併發症,不過該名醫師已因此被開除。

The hospital’s chief executive, Norbert Pfeiffer, said the surgeon wrongly decided to go ahead with the routine procedure even though no qualified assistant was available, SWR reported.

醫院執行長諾伯特.菲佛說,該名醫師錯誤決定進行該常規手術,即使沒有合格的助手亦然,SWR報導說。

When the patient, who had received a local anesthetic, became restless the doctor asked a nearby cleaner to hold the man’s leg and pass surgical instruments. The incident came to light after a hospital manager spotted the cleaner in the operating theater.

當接受局部麻醉的患者變得不安時,該名醫師要求附近一位清潔工握住該男的腿,並傳遞手術器具。一名醫院經理看到清潔工在手術室後,這起事件才曝光。

Microsoft’s nascent Bing chatbot turning testy or even threatening is likely because it essentially mimics what it learned from online conversations, analysts and academics said on Friday.

微軟剛推出的「必應」聊天機器人變得暴躁,甚至語出威脅,可能是因為它基本上是在模仿它從網路對話上學來的東西,分析家和學者週五說。

Tales of disturbing exchanges with the artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot have gone viral.

有關人工智慧聊天機器人出現令人不安的對話的事,已被廣為流傳。

"I think this is basically mimicking conversations that it’s seen online," said Graham Neubig, an associate professor at Carnegie Mellon University’s language technologies institute.

卡內基梅隆大學語言科技研究所副教授葛來姆‧諾比格說,「我想這基本上是在模仿在網路上看到的對話」。

"So once the conversation takes a turn, it’s probably going to stick in that kind of angry state, or say ’I love you’ and other things like this, because all of this is stuff that’s been online before." (AFP)

「所以,一旦對話出現轉折,它可能就會依照那種憤怒的狀態,或者說『我愛你』之類的話,因為這些都是之前在網路上看過的東西。」(法新社)
