Bus for the homeless 双层公共汽车被改装成流浪者住所

City living for honeybees 英国研究人员为蜜蜂缔造城市庇护所

文字稿

All aboard for what could be a revolution in housing for the homeless. This is the double decker bus that's doubling up as accommodation. Paul has lived rough here on the Isle of Wight (UK) for months, but he's now one of 14 homeless people with a permanent berth on-board. Top deck the seats are out and the beds are in. Downstairs there are more beds, a fully-fitted kitchen, even a wood-burner.

这辆公共汽车已经准备就绪,它可能会引领一场有关流浪者住宿问题的变革。这就是那辆可以当作住所的双层公共汽车。保罗已在英国怀特岛持续数月风餐露宿,而现在,他是拥有固定车上铺位的十四名流浪者之一。这辆公共汽车的顶层座位已被换成床铺,楼下有更多的床位,并配以装修完备的厨房设施,甚至还安装了取暖炉。

With worldwide concern growing about the decline of bees, there's been a renewed interest in creating sanctuaries for these key pollinators to thrive. One of them is in the heart of the British capital. The University of London’s beekeeping project provides an urban oasis for honeybees while providing hands-on learning opportunities for its researchers. These rooftop hives in the heart of the city provide more than 10 kilos of honey a year - plus by-products - like beeswax.

随着世界范围内对蜜蜂数量减少这一现象的担忧日益增长,人们开始重新关注为这种重要的授粉动物缔造生存的庇护所从而帮助它们繁衍生息的做法。这些庇护所当中,有一家设在英国首都伦敦的中心地段。由伦敦大学开展的养蜂计划为居住在这座城市中的蜜蜂提供一片得以栖居的“绿洲”,与此同时,该项目还给予其研究人员实际动手操作的学习机会。这些放置在市中心建筑屋顶上的蜂巢每年可提供十公斤以上的蜂蜜以及蜂蜡等副产品。
