England being knocked out by Netherlands in Women Euro 2017

Friday, 4 August 2017 :  Netherlands Women ( 3 – 0) England Women

The defeat will represent devastating failure for the Lionesses, who had targeted a first major trophy as their sole aim from the tournament.

Having lost their 2015 World Cup semi-final to Japan thanks to an injury-time own goal, individual errors again proved decisive.

The Dutch had already taken a 1-0 lead thanks to Vivianne Miedema’s first-half header when Fara Williams’s poor header was seized on by Danielle van de Donk.

And another stoppage-time own goal sealed England’s fate when Mille Bright turned in Lieke Martens’ shot.

Jade Moore hit the post and England wasted several good second-half chances, but they could not pierce the hosts’ defence.

Although reaching the last four may be deemed as a relative success in some eyes, and despite becoming the first England manager since Sir Alf Ramsey to reach two consecutive major tournament semi-finals, Mark Sampson and his players felt they could win the competition.

After finishing as the top European team in the World Cup, and being the highest ranked team left at Euro 2017, they seemed well set to take another step on the road to their ambition of becoming the “world’s number one team”.

But they were well beaten by a Dutch team which were technically superior, led by Van de Donk, and roared on by a record crowd of 27,093 for a women’s football match in the Netherlands.

The Dutch will now be favourites to beat Denmark in their first European Championship final, while England will have to regroup for the 2019 World Cup in France, perhaps having wasted their best chance of silverware with this group of players.

星期四,14/09/2017 苹果的iPhone是最知名的手机品牌之一,它已经成了时尚的标志。几乎每个人都知道这手机的名字 ”Phone“ 是telephone(电话)的缩写,然而几乎没有人知道其中的“i”是什么意思。 昨天做了一项调查,询问了研究生班上共36位同学,他们当中不少人都有这种手机,可是没有一个人答对“iPhone”的“i”是什么意思。同学们给出的答案有以下三种: 1、这里的“i”指“我的”,那么“iPhone”就是“我的电话”。 2、这里的“i”指“智能”,即取自intelligence的第一个字母。 3、这里的“i”指“创新”,即取自innovation的第一个字母。 要正确回答上述问题,需要了解一个背景。乔布斯于1985年被自己所创办的公司开除了,1997年又重新回归苹果,让濒临破产的苹果公司起死回生。在乔布斯的带领下,苹果公司研发了一系列“i”家族的电子产品,诸如iMac,iPod,iPad,iBook,iPhone等。 这个“i”就是“互联网(internet)”的意思,就是为了适应互联网时代而研发的一系列产品。这反映了乔布斯的一种观念,他认为新时代的任何电子产品如果脱离互联网都难以生存。 一个巧合是,乔布斯1997年刚回归苹果公司时,他在公司里的职位是iCEO。大众千万不要把它理解成“专门研发互联网电子产品的CEO”,即把这里的“i”也理解成“internet”的第一个字母是错误的。其实,冠在乔布斯这个名头上的“i”是来自intern(实习、临时)的第一个字母。 乔布斯刚回苹果公司时,自己也没有把握,只答应做一个临时的CEO,一年只拿1美元工资,如果一年后公司不见起色,他就辞职。这就是乔布斯的iCEO的来历。   图文来自:网路
