>Set-jetting tourism goes viral
影视剧取景地掀旅游潮
If you want to know where next year's most in-demand travel destination may be, just look at the next few months' releases of movies and TV shows. The "set-jetting" trend seems to be having a bit of a moment, and tourism boards are scrambling to make the most of it. "Game of Thrones" has irrevocably changed tourism in the ancient Croatian city of Dubrovnik; and with the release of "Crazy Rich Asians", the Singapore tourism board ramped up its efforts to lure set-jetters eager to experience the lavish lifestyle depicted in the film. In addition, Vogue reported that Monterey, California, had seen a bump in tourism since "Big Little Lies" premiered; and the British seaside region of Cornwall has had an influx of international visitors thanks to the BBC period drama series "Poldark".
如果你想知道明年最热门的旅游景点可能是哪些,只需看看接下来几个月上映的电影和电视剧便可知晓。近来"取景地打卡"的风潮似乎风头很劲,各地旅游局也都争相尽可能地利用这一热潮。《权力的游戏》一剧已经永远地改变了克罗地亚杜布罗夫尼克古城的旅游业;《摘金奇缘》上映后,新加坡旅游局也卖力地招揽渴望体验电影中描绘的奢华生活方式的游客。此外,据《Vogue》报道,自电视剧《大小谎言》开播以来,前往加州蒙特利的游客数量大增;英国滨海区康沃尔郡有大批海外游客涌入也是因为英国广播公司历史剧《波尔达克》的缘故。

"Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 pm on Aug 25, 2018. With the senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family," the statement said. McCain had suffered from a malignant brain tumor and had been treated periodically with radiation and chemotherapy since its discovery in 2017.

Our hearts and prayers are with you!" the president tweeted.

>Asians top in inequality
亚裔在美收入差距最大
Asian-Americans are now the most economically divided racial or ethnic group in the US, displacing African-Americans, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of US Census Bureau data. Income inequality among Asian-Americans has nearly doubled from 1970 to 2016. While rich Asians have become the highest-earning group in the nation, income growth among poor Asians has largely stagnated. This trend mirrors that of other racial groups, though income inequality has accelerated fastest among Asians. By 2016, Asians in the top 10th of income distribution earned about $120,000 more than those in the bottom 10th. Disparities among Asian-Americans are primarily driven by the different levels of education, skills and English-language proficiency among the many groups that make up the diaspora. People from India and China have higher incomes than those from Southeast Asia because they have higher levels of education on average.
皮尤研究中心对美国人口普查局的数据进行的最新分析显示,如今,亚裔美国人取代非洲裔美国人成为美国经济状况差距最大的种族或民族。1970年到2016年,亚裔美国人的收入不平等水平几乎翻了一番。虽然富裕的亚裔已成为美国收入最高的群体,但贫困亚裔的收入水平基本上没有增长。同样的情况在其他族裔群体中也存在,但亚裔人群中的收入不平等的程度却增长得最快。截至2016年,能够获得收入分配中最高的10%的亚裔比获得最低10%的亚裔约多赚12万美元。亚裔美国人来自许多不同的移民群体,他们的收入差距主要是因教育水平、技能和英语熟练程度的不同引起的。来自印度和中国的移民比来自东南亚的移民收入更高,因为前者的平均受教育程度更高。
