Kevin Mayer is to step down as TikTok’s chief executive, after just three months in the job. The video-sharing app is the latest Chinese-owned firm to stir up national-security concerns in America. It has filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump’s order that bans it unless it sells its American operations to an American company. TikTok said it had “taken extraordinary measures to protect the privacy” of data.A group of WeChat users also sued the administration over a similar order from Mr Trump. The group argues that a ban on the Chinese-owned messaging app curtails their right to free speech and forms part of the president’s “racial animus” against Chinese people.

译文

凯文·迈耶(Kevin Mayer)将辞去TikTok首席执行官一职,他上任仅三个月。拥有这款视频分享应用的公司是最新一家在美引发国家安全担忧的中国企业。该公司就特朗普要求其出售美国业务给一家美国公司,否则将面临禁令一事提起诉讼。TikTok方面表示,该公司“采取了特别的措施来保护数据的隐私”。由微信用户组成的组织就特朗普的类似禁令起诉了美国政府。该组织认为,对这款中国人所拥有的通讯应用的禁令限制了他们的言论自由,是特朗普总统对中国人“种族敌意”的一部分。

The recent decision by Apple to split its stock prompted a reconfiguration of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, an index of 30 American companies weighted by share price. Out go ExxonMobil, Raytheon and Pfizer, to be replaced by Amgen, Honeywell and Salesforce. Exxon traces its roots in the index to 1928; it was then known as Standard Oil of New Jersey. Its removal leaves Chevron as the only oil company in the Dow. The changes offset the reduction in Apple’s weight in the index, but also “better reflect the American economy”, according to Dow Jones.

译文

苹果公司最近拆分其股票的决定促使道琼斯工业平均指数(Dow Jones Industrial Average)进行了重组,该指数由30家美国公司的股价加权而成。埃克森美孚(ExxonMobil)、雷神(Raytheon)和辉瑞(Pfizer)将被安进(Amgen)、霍尼韦尔(Honeywell)和Salesforce取代。埃克森美孚在该指数中的历史可追溯到1928年;当时它被称为新泽西标准石油公司。该公司被取代后,雪佛龙成为道琼斯指数中唯一一家石油公司。道琼斯方面(Dow Jones)表示,这些变化抵消了苹果在该指数中权重的下降,但也“更好地反映了美国经济”。

A court in California granted Lyft and Uber an emergency stay against an injunction that would have forced them to reclassify their drivers as employees in the state, wrecking their business model. The ride-hailing companies’ appeal will be heard on October 13th.Germany’s statistics office now thinks the economy shrank by 9.7% in the second quarter compared with the first, a bit better than an initial estimate of -10.1%.

译文

加州的一家法院批准Lyft和Uber紧急暂缓执行一项禁令,该禁令将迫使它们将司机重新归类为在加州的员工,这将破坏它们的商业模式。这两家网约车公司的上诉将于10月13日举行听证。如今,德国统计局认为,与第一季度相比,第二季度的经济萎缩了9.7%,比最初估计的-10.1%的结果好一些。

注释

在接下来的几年里,这个国家的财富不是停滞就是缩水。

The business quickly repaid the initial outlay on advertising.

这家公司很快偿付了初期的广告费。
