British Ambassador Resigns After Leak of Diplomatic Cables Critical of Trump Administration
(LONDON) — Britain’s ambassador to the United States resigned Wednesday, just days after diplomatic cables criticizing President Donald Trump were leaked, causing embarrassment to two countries that often celebrate having a “special relationship.”
(伦敦) - 就在批评唐纳德·特朗普总统的外交电报被泄露几天后，英国驻美国大使于周三辞职，这给两个经常庆祝"特殊关系"的国家带来了尴尬。
The resignation of Kim Darroch came after Trump lashed out at him on Twitter, describing the ambassador as “wacky” and a “pompous fool.” The criticism came after leaked documents revealed the envoy’s dim view of Trump’s administration, which he described as dysfunctional, inept and chaotic.
金·达罗克(Kim Darroch)辞职之前，特朗普曾在 Twitter 上抨击他，称这位大使"疯疯癫癫"，是个"华而不实的傻瓜" 这些批评是在泄露的文件显示特使对特朗普政府持悲观态度之后发出的，他称特朗普政府功能失调、无能且混乱。

Europe's 5G difference: Unlimited data without a big surcharge
欧洲 5G网络的不同之处: 无限制的数据传输而不需要额外的费用
We can thank Europe for building much of what made the modern mobile phone. Companies like Nokia and Ericsson built the first blockbuster devices, and the continent gave us GSM, the network technology used around the world.
我们可以感谢欧洲建造了许多现代手机。 像诺基亚和爱立信这样的公司制造了第一批轰动一时的设备，欧洲大陆给了我们 GSM，世界各地使用的网络技术。
With the latest generation in mobile data speeds, though, Europe isn't leading, it's following. Over the past year the US and South Korea have beat Europe to the launch of 5G, which is expected to open a new chapter in mobile experiences, such as streaming 4K video on the go, less network congestion in busy city centers and support for new technologies such as autonomous cars.
But even as a follower, Europe is host to a fiercely competitive environment of stakeholders all wanting to prove they can deploy 5G first. Obstacles such as spectrum auctions in some countries remain, but the region's networks have shown that when necessary, they can accelerate their own plans to catch up and keep pace with industry leaders around the world.
