美參院通過提案,允許9·11死者家屬起訴沙特 - 紐約時報中文網

關於沙特官員在9·11襲擊中可能扮演的角色,有些疑問十多年懸而未決。受害者家屬聲稱沙特皇室和慈善機構的一些成員給恐怖活動提供了資金支持,並對這些人發起了多次訴訟。但是,這些行動絕大部分遭到了阻攔,部分原因是1976年的一項法律使得外國在美國法院訴訟中擁有一定的豁免權。<p>參議院通過的提案給該法設定了一種例外情況:外國在美國境內參與了針對美國公民的恐怖襲擊。倘若提案在兩院獲得通過,總統也同意簽署,它就可能會為在9·11訴訟中調查沙特政府的作用掃清障礙。<p>「如果沙特沒有參與這個恐怖活動,他們就不怕走上法庭,」紐約州民主党參議員查克·舒默(Chuck Schumer)說。「如果他們參與了,就應該被追究責任 …

廣告<p>新加坡式英語靈活、實用、多變,每一個使用者都可以影響它。這可能就是為什麼它在半個世紀前還像個非殖民化副產品一樣默默無聞,多年後卻成了新加坡最具政治意味的語言。<p>在英國殖民統治時期,英語是官方語言,街頭對話用的則是巴剎馬來語。直到這個島國1965年完全獨立後,英語依然是傳達命令和體現國家治理的首選語言,這部分是因為,英語作為全球通行語言這一點,似乎能推進這個年輕的政府的現代化議程。<p>那時,所有新加坡公民都必須學英語,還有馬來語、中文或泰米爾語。政府尤其認為國家建設意味着要統一人口占多數的華人的語言。從1979年開始,當局大力開展「講華語運動」(Speak Mandarin Campaign),要 …

從雪糕漲價6毛錢看日本的經濟困境 - 紐約時報中文網

廣告<p>消費物價對日本經濟來說是個很頭疼的問題。該國官員一直試圖通過向經濟中注入資金並提高公共支出來化解頑固的通貨緊縮。日本經濟常年在增長和萎縮之間搖擺。本週三,政府公布的數據顯示,經濟增長的速度在第一季度有所加快。<p>但是,上漲的物價——比如「嘎哩嘎哩君」雪糕從60日元漲價到70日元——並不意味着經濟變得更有活力,或者消費趨勢增強了,而是通常意味着公司成本增加,使得利潤變薄了。通貨緊縮的趨勢仍然難以動搖。相比於物價,工資遭受的壓力更大,所以大多數日本人的購買力並不如上一代人。<p>「『嘎哩嘎哩君』應該是小孩可以輕鬆地用零用錢購買的東西,」在出產這種雪糕的赤城乳業株式會社(Akagi Nyugyo),營銷高 …
