Next big extinction?

人类活动正导致物种加速灭绝

AFRICAN elephants, Bengals (孟加拉虎), harbor seals (斑海豹)… Many wild animals are losing the battle for survival over the world. Are we experiencing Earth’s sixth mass (大批的) extinction event? Many scientists believe so.

A mass extinction event is a worldwide and rapid decrease in the amount of life on Earth. There have been five mass extinctions before and the last one was 65 million ago. Dinosaurs died out during that time.

According to the Living Planet Report by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Zoological Society of London, since 1970, the world has lost 52 percent of wildlife populations. In England, 421 species died out over the past 200 years, including ants, bees, butterflies and fish.

The Scottish Wildcat, for example, used to live in the forests and grasslands of Europe. Now the big cats are extinct in western and northern Europe. There are less than 100 in Scotland.

The authors of the report said the main threat to wildlife is human activity. People kill animals for food while polluting and destroying habitats (栖息地).

“We have lost one half of the animal population, and knowing this is driven by humans, this is clearly a call to arms and we must act now,” Mike Barratt, director of science and policy at WWF, said to The Guardian. He added that we must protect the world from too much development. Don’t cut down too many trees. Don’t overuse resources.

“If we get [our response] right, we will have a safe way of life for the future,” said Jonathan Baillie, ZSL’s director of conservation.

Teenage chef’s menu

美国烹饪天才的创意料理

SOME kids like to help their parents in the kitchen, but Flynn McGarry from the US, has took it a step further.

The 15-year-old has been cooking since he was 10. And now he’s opened his own restaurant and delivers orders (下命令) to cooks three times his age.

McGarry began to practice his knife skills after school and taught himself the basics from books and the Internet. He has a passion for cooking. In his room, there are no video games, baseballs or movie posters. There are mixers, pots, cutting boards and pans. He turned his room into an experimental kitchen called Club Eureka. Monthly, he hosts the Club Eureka for his mother’s friends and soon won the title of culinary prodigy (烹饪天才).

“Flynn’s a very unusual young man and he’s very passionate (有激情的),” said John Sedlar, chef of a well-known restaurant in Los Angeles. In the restaurant, Sedlar even handed his kitchen over to the boy for a special dinner. On his menu, dishes like trout with braised leeks (鳟鱼炖韭菜) often sold out.

Now, chefs and famous people pay $160 (982 yuan) per person to eat in McGarry’s monthly club Eureka. The meals, as described by The New York Times, are creative and enough to make an experienced chef inferior (逊色的).

As for the future, McGarry dreams to open a Michelin-starred (米其林星级) restaurant and make it one of the world’s top 50 restaurants.

Best tasting Chinese food of foreigners

老外最爱哪些中国菜

CHINESE food is popular around the world. Yet the dishes change depending on the country. For example, in Britain, Chinese dishes are mostly Cantonese. This is because Britons have a taste for mild (温和的) flavors. Its difficult to find hot pot in Chinese restaurants in Britain.

Once I arrived in China, I was blown away by the flavors and spices Chinese food offers. Hot pot is my favorite Chinese dish. The bubbling (冒泡) of the water and oils; the steam coming off boiled beef and potatoes; the fiery (辛辣的) flavor of peppers. The final ingredient: laughter with friends. This is my ideal dinner.

Yet different people prefer other dishes. One of my British friends loves “strange” food. I say this word because in Britain, these foods are considered odd such as chicken’s feet. My friend has recently fallen in love with duck’s tongue (鸭舌). Once we walked up and down the street, hoping to find a nice cooked slice of tongue.

One friend from the US enjoys the unique taste of Chinese fried dumplings. “You can only get good dumplings in China. Nothing you’ll find in the US compares to a dumpling served fresh by a street vendor in Shanghai,” he said.

One favorite food that my friends and I all share is holiday food. When each holiday comes, we know it’s time to relax and, more importantly, eat traditional food. Dragon Boat Festival means eating zongzi. And the Mid-Autumn Festival is a time to enjoy the moon cakes.
