前美國副總統高爾與李奧納多(茹素),出席奧斯卡提倡「不願面對的真相」(An Inconvenient Truth),而該影片主題為全球暖化議題。主張環境保護運動以來,高爾在片說出地球危機,並疾呼保護地球的重要。他指出:「我們現在確實面臨到越來越嚴重的地球,因而我們必須大膽、迅速及明智地做出反應。」

只有一個目的----拯救我們的地球----

以素食拯救地球

1979年的北極冰蓋

2003年的北極冰蓋

北極的冰蓋在加速融化,海洋裡冰層消失的速度比以往任何時候都要快。這是迄今為止最明顯的全球變暖的跡象。美國一流的氣候學家發出警告說,我們只有10年的時間來拯救這個星球了。

美國國家航空航天局(NASA)下屬研究機構采用了不同的衛星監測技術,其結果都表明,在過去的兩年裡,隨著北極冰蓋的消失,一些地方已經成為波濤洶湧的海面。自1979年起開始用衛星觀察北極冰蓋的情況以來,平均每年的融化速率為0.15%,在過去的兩個冬天裡,其融化速率突然增加到6%。

這一變化讓科學家和所有明理的人都深感擔懮,因為這遠遠超出了過去利用計算機模型預測的北極冰蓋因全球變暖而發生融化的速度。按照原先的預計,如果不幹預氣候的變化,北極冰蓋在2070年就完全消失。但如果這一新的加速趨勢一直維持下去,北極冰蓋消失的時間將會提前數十年。

這一變化影響巨大。首先,依賴北極冰蓋捕食海豹的北極熊會絕跡,包括那些現在還處於幼年時期的小北極熊。其次,毀滅性的「反饋」機製會加速全球變暖。反射陽光的白色冰蓋消失了,北極海洋的深色海水會吸收大量太陽的熱量,世界各地的天氣會變得更熱。最為重要的是,新的發展趨勢告訴人們,氣候變化的進程比科學家原先預想的要快得多。

不僅北極冰蓋的融化本身會使全球海平面上昇,巨大的冰山漂浮在海中,就已經造成了海平面的昇高。覆蓋在格陵蘭島和南極陸地上的冰川體積巨大,導致北極冰蓋縮減的溫度上昇也在影響著這些冰層,它們也開始融化了。如果南極西部冰層完全崩塌,世界上的海平面會上昇5米,很多地方都會被淹沒。

如何應對全球暖化問題日趨嚴重的局勢?英國環境部長賓布萊德蕭(Ben Bradshaw)最近在英國政府啟用新的公眾服務網站(Directgov)時向大眾警告,如果氣候變化繼續失控,英國民眾可能恢復到第二次世界大戰時期糧食配額供給的生活型態,布萊德蕭指出食物生產過程對溫室效應的影響等同於私人交通運輸所產生的影響,飲食中去掉肉類的消耗是穩定氣候變化的長久之計。

這個英國政府新設置的網站(www.direct.gov.uk/greenerfood)中說:「肉類與奶製品的生產對氣候變暖及對環境的其他影響遠大於大多數的穀類、豆類與蔬菜水果的生產所起的作用。少肉多蔬果將使許多人獲益。」但英國嚴格素食協會新聞中心主任Rosamund Raha表示,「很高興政府至少已發現吃肉與奶製品會對氣候與環境產生破壞,但期待政府鼓勵提倡最有益於環境的嚴格素食。」

為滿足肉食的口欲,需要消耗更多的能量和土地來飼養各種家畜、家禽。根據美國哈佛大學營養學家估算,生產一磅牛肉或羊肉需要8磅的穀類作飼料。換言之,如果美國人近10年少消耗10%的肉食,則省下的穀物能夠讓6億人吃飽。據統計,為飼養家畜要消耗掉2/3以上的耕地;地球上人為產生的甲烷中,畜牧業就佔16%,而甲烷正是產生溫室效應的主要氣體之一。綜合看,肉類的生產、包裝、運輸和烹飪所消耗的能量比植物性食物要多得多,其對引發地球溫室效應所佔人類行為的比重高達25%,而飛機所造成的溫室效應僅佔2% 。可以說食用肉類是繼運輸和房屋耗能後發現的又一大導致氣候反常的主要因素。

素食是人類最合理健康的飲食結構,不瞭解此點的人或許會有所擔心,但歷史的明鑒完全可以消除人們的疑慮:在兩次世界大戰中,素食運動得到了大力推廣。由於德國的封鎖,丹麥政府擔心出現缺糧危機,要求丹麥素食者協會設計糧食配給計劃,結果丹麥人在戰時的健康得到了極大的增進,死亡率也大大地降低了。當時一般公民所吃的只是粗麵包、麥片粥、土豆、蔬菜和奶品。在第二次世界大戰時,挪威也有同樣的經驗,他們在迫不得已的情況下把肉食的消耗量降低,五穀和蔬菜等大量地增加,與此同時國民因循環系統疾病造成的死亡大為減少,戰爭結束後挪威恢復了戰前的飲食習慣,循環系統疾病死亡率又回昇到戰前的水平。與此相對照的是,二戰後,許多國家人民的生活水平提高得很快,肉類和禽類一躍成為他們的主要食品,並向許多國家推廣這種新興的飲食結構,但始料未及的是這些國家心血管疾病、癌癥、糖尿病和肥胖癥的發病率卻急劇上昇。

有關素食益處的詳情,請惠覽本網一位環保者的素食理由從禽流感等疫情反觀素食,做進一步的瞭解。為了自身的健康、為了地球的生存,我們選擇最適宜人類的素食!
 
現在最新研究發現(2007年12月),北極融冰速度比先前預測的快得多,上述情況可能 提早到2012年出現! 去年才有科學家提出警告,依照現今的全球暖化速度估算!

如何救救我們的地球

1.吃素:

根據美國太空總署(NASA) 本周最新的氣候研究, NASA 的氣象學家對外宣佈北冰洋的融冰速度將導致在 2012 年出現無冰現象。 NASA 氣候變化研究小組的茨瓦利說北冰洋冰層融化速度大大超於去年的預測,NASA 的首席氣象學韓森聲稱儘早行動,我們就能挽回這一切。 ( http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/wireStory?id=3991705 )

聯合國2006 年氣候變暖報告中指出畜牧業養殖產生的溫室氣體遠遠多於汽車和卡車產生的。聯合國糧食及農業組織高級官員亨甯 · 施泰因費爾德 : "畜牧生產是造成當今最嚴重環境問題的最大責任方之一"。

芝加哥州立大學的研究人員在他們的新書「飲食、能源與全球暖化」中表示,改採素食所減少的碳排量,比從駕駛雪佛蘭越野車轉為開豐田普瑞斯油電混合車,還多百分之五十。

希望這個世界的領袖都能傾聽,並帶頭成為素食者。但即使你不是世界領袖,你也可以改變自己,並試著影響別人,每多一個人吃素,這 世界就多一份希望!

2.使用可再回收資源

3.盡量騎單車

4.少消費。

Planting the Soul of Lyon in the Dubai Desert


在杜拜沙漠種下里昂魂


A scene from Lyon, France, a city which Buti Saeed al-Ghandi, an entrepreneur from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, hopes to replicate in part in his homeland. “I also fell in love again with my wife there,” he explained, “and that’s also why I love Lyon.”

By ELAINE SCIOLINO
Published: January 28, 2008



LYON, France – Strolling the streets of Lyon with his wife last October, Buti Saeed al-Ghandi was suddenly overcome by a double wave of love, for the city and for his spouse.
去年十月和妻子信步里昂街頭時,布提‧沙德‧甘迪剎那間充滿了愛,他愛極了這個城市,也愛極了他的妻。


So Mr. Ghandi, a 40-year-old entrepreneur, decided to capture the magic of the moment by building a little Lyon – back home in Dubai.
因此,40歲的這位企業家決定在他的老家杜拜打造一個小里昂,捕捉下奇妙的那一刻。


“I travel all around the world, and Lyon is one of those places that make you feel different,” Mr. Ghandi said in a telephone interview. “The people do not live at a fast pace of life. There is an intimacy with visitors. There is so much history and culture, the small streets, the small shops, the old houses. I also fell in love again with my wife there, and that’s also why I love Lyon.”
甘迪說:「我周遊世界,里昂是個讓人有不同感受的地方。這裡的人過的不是快節奏的生活。它讓觀光客有種親密感。這裡充滿歷史與文化,有小街道、小商店、老房子。我在那裡還再度愛上我的妻子,這也是我愛里昂的原因。」


Certainly Lyon – with its two rivers, its Gallic-Roman ruins, its 300 Renaissance merchant houses and its gastronomic reputation – is special, even in France.
里昂確實與眾不同,即使是在法國亦復如此。市內有兩條河、高盧─羅馬廢墟、300個文藝復興風格商店,且美食遠近馳名。


In early January Mr. Ghandi, chairman of Emirates Investment and Development, signed a deal with Lyon’s mayor and several local entities to embark on a grand architectural adventure for Dubai, one of the seven principalities that make up the United Arab Emirates.
今年一月,「酋長國投資與發展」公司董事長甘迪與里昂市長以及數個地方實體簽署協議,在阿拉伯聯合大公國的七個分子邦之一杜拜,展開一項宏偉而令人興奮的建築開發計畫。


The project, temporarily called Lyon-Dubai City, will include a university; museums; housing, hotel and office space; cafes, restaurants, pedestrian malls, town squares, courtyards, a film center, maybe even a church, all inspired by Lyon, France’s third-largest city with a population of about 450,000. As of now, little Lyon will cover 300 to 400 hectares.
暫時定名里昂-杜拜市的這項計畫,涵蓋一所大學;博物館;住宅、飯店、辦公室空間;咖啡館、餐廳、行人徒步購物街、市區廣場、庭園、電影中心,甚至可能有座教堂。所有靈感均來自人口45萬的法國第三大城里昂。按目前規畫,小里昂面積在300到400公頃之譜。


The Paul Bocuse Institute is hoping to set up a branch to train young chefs and restaurant and hotel managers. The Museum of Textiles is poised to open a silk museum. Research is under way to cool outdoor spaces naturally to make strolling bearable during dust storms and 40-degree heat.
「保羅布卡斯中心」希望能設立一個部門,訓練年輕的廚師與餐廳和飯店經理。「織品博物館」的計畫之一是設置一個絲綢博物館。研究人員正在研究如何以自然方式使室外空間降溫,讓人在沙塵暴與40度高溫之中,仍能漫步其間。


What the project must not do, its participants insist, is clone Lyon.
參與者堅稱,這項計畫絕對不能做的,是複製里昂。


“This will not be Disneyland or Las Vegas,” said Jean-Paul Lebas, the project’s planner, who helped rebuild Beirut after Lebanon’s civil war. “We have to make people feel that they are there without copying the architecture of Lyon – that is the challenge. The social will be more important than the physical. The smiles seen on the faces of others will come first. I know it’s a bit virtual, but if one succeeds. ...” Mayor Gérard Collomb was more direct. “We will give Dubai the soul of Lyon,” he said.
計畫的策畫人尚保羅‧勒巴說:「這不是迪士尼樂園或拉斯維加斯。我們一定要讓人們覺得身在里昂,卻不複製里昂的建築。這是一大挑戰。社會面比實體來得重要。人們先看到的,是其他人臉上的笑容。我知道這說的有點虛幻,但若能成功…。」市長傑哈德‧柯隆的說法較直接明白。他說:「我們將賦予杜拜里昂魂。」


Then there is the issue of alcohol and pork, both forbidden under Islam. Pork-based charcuterie is a staple of Lyon’s traditional gastronomy, while wine is crucial to French dining.
其他還有喝酒與吃豬肉的問題,兩者均為伊斯蘭教所禁止。以豬肉為主的熟食店,是里昂的招牌傳統美食,酒品更是法國人用餐少不得的。


For Mr. Ghandi, there should be no gastronomic or alcoholic censure. “It’s not an issue,” he said. “We are an international city in Dubai. You give people the freedom to do what they like to do.”
甘迪認為,美食和酒都不該設限。他說:「這不成問題。杜拜是國際城市。要讓人們有自由做想做的事。」


Not everyone in Lyon is convinced of the wisdom of the project, though.
不過,不是每個里昂人都看好這項計畫。


“It’s hard for me to imagine how you can capture the soul of the city,” said Jacques Lasfargues, an archaeologist and the chief curator at the Museum of Gallic-Roman Civilization.
考古學家兼高羅─羅馬文明博物館總館長賈克‧拉法格說:「我很難想像人們如何能捕捉這個城市的靈魂。」


Mayor Collomb will not be deterred. “Dubai already has built ski slopes and islands,” he said. “And if you can do that, you can make rivers.”
市長柯隆不打算就此作罷。他說:「杜拜已建有滑雪坡與島嶼,這些都做得到,造河也難不倒它。」

Reindeer Herders in Finland On Front Line of Wolf Wars


芬蘭養鹿人面對狼的戰爭


By Stephen Castle


SUOMUSSALMI, Finland – Close to the tiny Finnish village of Saaravaara, bloody tracks lead through the snow to the frozen carcass of an 8-month-old male reindeer lying on its side, its neck torn, its underbelly ripped open.
芬蘭小村莊薩拉瓦拉附近,雪地上的血跡一路把人帶到一頭八個月大公馴鹿已凍僵的屍體,牠側躺在地上,頸部被撕裂,下腹被扯開。


Saaravaara, near the Russian border, is reindeer country.

Within minutes, Ilmari Schepel, a local agriculture official, identified the culprit: a wolf. His evidence was the shape of the bite to the animal’s throat and the belly tear; wolves are particularly fond of reindeer intestines.
只花了幾分鐘,地方農業官員艾爾馬利‧榭貝爾就指認出凶手:一隻狼。他的證據是馴鹿咽喉被咬的形狀,以及腹部的撕扯傷;狼對馴鹿的腸子特別有興趣。


This town, a 20-minute drive from Finland’s border with Russia and more than 605 kilometers northeast of Helsinki, is on the front line of Finland’s wolf wars. The fight is between backers of European Union regulations, which are meant to halt sharp drops in the population of wolves and other endangered predators across Europe, and the roughly 7,000 reindeer herders whose livelihoods are threatened by increased attacks on their animals.
這個村莊距芬蘭和俄羅斯的邊界約20分鐘車程,位於赫爾辛基東北方逾605公里處,是芬蘭野狼戰爭的最前線。這場戰爭的交戰雙方,一邊是意圖阻止歐洲野狼和其他瀕絕掠食動物數量銳減的歐盟法規的支持者;另一邊則是大約七千個馴鹿養殖戶,他們的馴鹿被野狼攻擊的案件日增,生計大受威脅。


Finland, which joined the European Union in 1995, came under criticism that its hunting practices did not mesh with European habitat directives. So in 2001, the Finnish government tightened its hunting laws to meet European Union standards. Finnish law now states that every kill must be covered by a permit and restricts the number of permits to about 10 percent of a particular predator’s known numbers.
芬蘭1995年加入歐盟後,因其打獵活動與歐盟動物棲地指令不符而受到批評。因此在2001年,芬蘭政府制定更嚴格的狩獵法,以達到歐盟的標準。現在芬蘭法律規定,每一項獵殺行動都必須取得許可,許可的獵殺數量則不超過某種特定掠食動物已知數量的10%左右。


Seven years later, the populations of wolves, lynxes, brown bears and wolverines in Finland have grown substantially, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry in Helsinki. In this area, the number of wolves has roughly tripled since 1996, and attacks on reindeer herds have increased more than threefold in the past 10 years.
根據赫爾辛基農林部的資料,在修法的七年後,芬蘭的狼、猞—、棕熊和狼獾數量大增。在此地區,狼的數量自1996年以來大約增為三倍,過去十年來,狼攻擊馴鹿群案件則增加了三倍多。


The level of anger about the hunting restrictions is high here. In one telling example, Stavros Dimas, the European environment commissioner who insisted on the hunting crackdown to protect the endangered predators, received a bullet in his mailbox from an irate hunter.
打獵限制在芬蘭引起群情激憤。歐盟環境事務專員(或稱環境事務執委會主席)史塔佛羅斯.迪馬斯堅持取締打獵以保護瀕絕掠食動物,他的信箱裡收到憤怒獵人寄來的子彈。


Asko Moilanen, 40, a third-generation herder, said that because of his losses to predators over the past three years, his income from reindeer has been reduced to almost nothing. “Either we should be allowed to hunt or they should pay compensation for the real losses,” he said. “It affects my whole life and my family.”
養鹿戶的第三代、40歲的阿斯柯‧莫伊拉儂說,由於過去三年掠食動物造成他的損失,他養馴鹿的收入幾乎化為烏有。他說:「他們應該准我們打獵,不然就得補償我們實際的損失,這已影響我整個生活和家庭。」


Mr. Moilanen, who is married with four children, depends on his wife’s earnings to make a living. “The people are poor here, but I am a beggar. Last year on my tax return, I declared just 100 dollars earned from herding.”
莫伊拉儂已婚,有四名子女,仰賴妻子的收入過活。「這裡的人很窮,而我更是乞丐,去年在我的報稅單上,我申報的養鹿所得只有100美元。」


Herders complain that state compensation for lost reindeer – each carcass fetches about $439 – is inadequate because it fails to take account the remains of those that are never found. The Agriculture and Forestry Ministry says the herders are fairly compensated.
養鹿戶抱怨,國家對馴鹿損失的補償是每具屍體可補償439美元,這不合理,因為無法把找不到屍體的馴鹿損失計算在內。農林部則說,養鹿戶得到相當好的補償。


In much of Finland, reindeer hold a hallowed place in the collective imagination. Farther north toward the Arctic Circle, Lapland is the supposed home of Santa Claus and his flying reindeer. Less sentimental Finns enjoy eating reindeer: fried, sautéed, smoked or cold.
在芬蘭大部分地方,養鹿人在集體幻想中占有神聖地位。在靠近北極圈的更北方,拉普蘭是傳說中耶誕老人和他會飛的馴鹿的故鄉。較不浪漫的芬蘭人則享受馴鹿大餐:炸、煎、燻或做冷盤。


Before Finnish law was amended in 2001, there were few restrictions on hunting of predators here.
芬蘭在2001年修法之前,對獵殺掠食動物幾乎沒有限制。


For its part, the European Commission insists that, under the European Habitats Directive, wolves have the right to be protected. “Men and wolves have lived together for centuries, and there is no reason why they should not continue to do so,” said Barbara Helfferich, a spokeswoman for Mr. Dimas, the European environment commissioner. “We need to ensure coexistence and protect the species according to the law.”
歐洲執行委員會則堅持依據歐洲棲地指令野狼有權受到保護。歐洲環境事務專員迪馬斯的發言人芭芭拉‧海佛里奇說:「人類與狼已共同生活許多世紀,沒有理由不繼續下去。我們有必要確保人與狼共存,並依法保護這些動物。」

The Hottest Sex Show In Paris: The Library

PARIS – The lighting is bordello red, but the librarians insist that their X-rated exhibition is serious.
燈色是妓女戶那種紅,巴黎圖書館館員卻堅稱,他們辦的限制級展覽很正經。


A museumgoer peeks inside one of the exhibits. No one under 16 is admitted.

“Hell at the Library, Eros in Secret,” which opened at the National Library here last month, offers a look at its secret archive of erotic art, putting on display more than 350 sexually explicit literary works, manuscripts, engravings, lithographs, photographs, film clips, even calling cards and cardboard pop-ups.
「圖書館內的地獄,秘藏的性慾」展上個月在巴黎國家圖書館揭幕,讓外界得以一窺館藏的情慾藝術秘密檔案,共展出350多件露骨描繪情慾的文學作品、手稿、木刻版畫、石版畫、照片、電影片段,甚至有應召女郎的名片和讓人從裡面蹦出來的摺疊紙箱。


Visitors to the library can listen to a modern-day recording of an 18th-century “dialogue” during sex (simultaneous orgasms included) and watch a six-minute excerpt from a black-and-white silent pornography film made in 1921 (one man, two women, intriguing lingerie).
圖書館訪客可以聽一段18世紀性愛「對話」(同步收錄性高潮)的現代錄音版,並看一段1921年攝製的黑白色情默片的六分鐘選播(1男,2女,性感內衣)。


The handwritten manuscript of the Marquis de Sade’s novel “Les Infortunes de la Vertu” (“The Misfortunes of Virtue”) is under glass here, as are 17th-century French engravings of “erotic postures”; English “flagellation novels” exported to France in the late 19th century; Man Ray photographs; and a police report from 1900 that compiles the addresses of Paris’s houses of prostitution and what they charged.
薩德小說《貞女厄運》的手稿隔著玻璃在館內展出,以及17世紀的法國「浮世繪春宮」木刻版畫;19世紀後期出口到法國的英國「性虐待小說」;曼雷的照片;1900年的警方報告,彙編巴黎紅燈戶的地址及各家的收費標準。


Sadism, masochism, bestiality, inflated genitalia and the most imaginative sexual fantasies and athletic poses are given their due. To avoid complaints that a publicly supported institution is corrupting the country’s youth, no one under 16 is admitted.
性虐待狂、被虐狂、人獸交、誇張的性器官,以及最具想像力的性狂想,都占有一席之地。為了避免公家機關教壞囝仔大小的批評,16歲以下不得進場。


“In an era where sexual images are a product for popular consumption, the library has decided to lift the veil on this world of imagination and fantasy,” Bruno Racine, the library director, said in an interview. “The library is a very serious institution, and the project was done with gravity. But we also perhaps are different from what you think – and there is humor here too.”
「在這個性慾影像已是大眾消費商品的時代,本館決定揭開想像與奇幻世界的面紗」,館長布魯諾.瑞辛受訪表示。「圖書館是非常嚴肅正經的地方,本展也十分莊重。但我們和各位所想的或許有些出入,其中不乏幽默感。」


Until now, the only outsiders allowed to view the vast erotica collection of about 2,000 works were legitimate researchers. Certainly the public has responded. The exhibition is one of the most popular in years. It takes an hour to get in.
在此之前,唯一獲准觀看近兩千件龐大情色館藏的外人是師出有名的研究學者。如今一般大眾反應自然也很熱烈。這項展覽是近年人氣最旺的展覽之一。得排一小時的隊才進得去。


The items, on display through March 22, are drawn from a permanent collection created in the 1830s when the library isolated works considered “contrary to good morals.” They were put in a locked section and given the name L’Enfer – hell. Many pieces have been consigned there over the years by the police.
展覽3月22日結束,展品出自1830年代成立的永久館藏系列,當時館方將被視為「違反善良道德」的作品隔離,放在一個封鎖區,還取名「禁書區」(地獄)。許多被發落到這裡的作品來自警方經年累月的查扣品。


The exhibition comes at a time when France is struggling with a variety of societal issues: the limits of privacy for its public figures, censorship and the definition of good taste. A one-day scholarly conference at the library about the exhibition included a debate on the meaning of modern-day censorship.
展出適逢法國努力解決各種社會議題的時刻:公眾人物隱私權的界限,送審制度和優良品味的定義。在圖書館舉辦有關展覽的一天學術會議,包括一場當代審檢制度意義的辯論。


Paris seems proud of the library show. The Paris metro system constructed an advertising teaser for it on its No. 10 line. Commuters passing by the closed Croix Rouge station get the most fleeting of glimpses of erotic engravings lighted up in shocking pink and partly hidden behind fluttering black curtain strips.
巴黎似以這場圖書館大展為榮。巴黎地鐵在第10號線為展覽製作一個廣告來吊胃口。通勤族經過已經封閉的紅十字站時,能有最完整的驚鴻一瞥,看見情色版畫被打上桃紅色的燈光,在飄揚的黑色簾條後面若隱若現。


The newspaper Le Monde has run ads for the show (with a shocking-pink X) on its front page. The literary review Le Magazine Littéraire devoted its December cover to the subject, with scholarly essays on sex and aging, the last taboo of pedophilia and whether excessive public display of sex has made it boring.
「世界報」在頭版刊出展覽廣告(有個觸目驚心的桃紅色X字)。書評《文學雜誌》12月號封面專題報導全是這次展覽,內頁另有學術論文探討性與老化、最後的禁忌戀童癖,以及將性過度公開是否已經把性變得乏味等議題。


Still, with France’s tough laws against pornography and one of the most aggressive law-enforcement campaigns against child pornography in Europe, the library has taken care to avoid falling afoul of the law, like Henry-Claude Cousseau, director of the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Mr. Cousseau is facing charges of exhibiting works of “a violent pornographic nature,” in a modern-art exhibition in a Bordeaux museum in 2000. One painting depicted a young girl, wearing heavy makeup, in a bath; a video showed a girl in a graphic masturbation scene. If convicted, Mr. Cousseau faces a fine of $110,000 and up to three years in prison.
不過,法國有嚴刑峻法對付色情刊物及影片,其嚴打兒童春宮作品的力道在歐洲又數一數二,國家圖書館已小心不要違法,以免落得巴黎法國國立高等美術學院院長柯索那種下場。柯索2000年在波爾多一間美術館的現代藝術展中,展示具有「高度色情性質」的作品遭到起訴。一幅畫描繪一名濃妝豔抹的年輕女孩在洗澡;一段視訊出現一名女孩逼真的自慰畫面。如果定罪,柯索將面臨11萬美元的罰金和最高三年的牢獄之災。


A wall display of vintage advertisements for prostitutes. “There is humor here too,” said Bruno Racine, the library director.

The library show is not the only one in Paris with sexually explicit material. An animated film that includes sexual intercourse and violence was being screened at “Sots Art – Political Art in Russia Since 1972,” at the Maison Rouge museum and gallery near the Place de la Bastille. There are no posted warnings, but a lot of very curious children.
圖書館的展覽並非巴黎唯一露骨性愛內容的展覽。一部包括性交和暴力的動畫片,最近在「俄國普普藝術風:1972年以來的俄國政治性藝術」展中播放,地點是巴士底廣場附近的紅屋美術館與藝廊。沒有張貼警語,倒是有許多好奇的孩童。


“Hell at the Library, Eros in Secret” runs through March 22 at the National Library of France, Site François-Mitterrand, Quai François-Mauriac, 13th Arrondissement, www.bnf.fr.


關鍵字句


巴黎擁有舉世聞名的瘋馬、紅磨坊和麗都三大名秀,本文標題卻說巴黎最火辣的春宮秀(the hottest sex show)在圖書館,而且是國家圖書館,展場燈光還是紅燈區妓院門口的那種紅(bordello red)。


翻譯往往涉及語言文化差異,展覽名稱即為一例。Hell at the Library,望文生義,可以衍生出「萬惡淫為首」、「色字頭上一把刀」等和「地獄」有關的聯想,還正好和後面秘藏的情慾(Eros in Secret)押韻。


根據大導演奇士勞斯基遺留劇本拍攝的電影叫做L'Enfer,英譯片名是The Hell,中文取了個《奇士勞斯基之地獄》。與法文enfer對應的英文是inferno,源於義大利文,也是但丁《神曲》(The Divine Comedy)其中一篇的篇名。


終究得回歸原文來判斷。經查,enfer在法文字典裡大概有七種意義,前六種都和英文理解的hell差不多,包括罪惡、詛咒、折磨,但是最後一個解釋出現玄機:這個字和圖書館連用的時候,意指存放禁書的區域(section with books forbidden to the public)。翻譯的關卡至此豁然貫通。


性慾(eros)大寫時是希臘神話中的愛神名,同羅馬神話的邱比特(Cupid),國片「幫幫我愛神」的英文片名就用了Eros。Erotica意指描繪情慾的文學藝術作品,流行音樂天后瑪丹娜1992年發行的專輯就取了這個名字。

日本純文學界愁對手機小說崛起



TOKYO – Until recently, cellphone novels – composed on phone keypads by young women wielding dexterous thumbs and read by fans on their tiny screens – had been dismissed in Japan as a subgenre unworthy of the country that gave the world its first novel, “The Tale of Genji,” a millennium ago.
直到最近,手機小說在日本一直被貶為次文類,在這一千年前產生世上第一部小說「源氏物語」的國度裡一文不值。手機小說是年輕女孩熟練地舞動她們靈巧的拇指在手機鍵盤上寫作,書迷在手機的小小螢幕上閱讀的小說形式。


Then in December, the year-end best-seller tally showed that cellphone novels, republished in book form, have not only infiltrated the mainstream but have come to dominate it.
接著在去年12月,年終暢銷書榜顯示,以書籍形式出版的手機小說,不僅滲透到主流市場,還稱霸市場。


Of last year’s 10 best-selling novels, five were originally cellphone novels, mostly love stories written in the short sentences characteristic of text messaging but containing little of the plotting or character development found in traditional novels. What is more, the top three spots were occupied by first-time cellphone novelists, touching off a debate.
在去年十大暢銷小說中,有五部原本是手機小說,大部分是以簡短句子寫的愛情故事,這是手機簡訊的特色,但沒有太多傳統小說中的情節和角色發展。尤有甚者,前三名竟然全由初試啼聲的手機小說家包了,引發辯論。


“Will cellphone novels kill ‘the author’?” a famous literary journal, Bungaku-kai, asked on the cover of its January issue. Fans praised the novels as a new literary genre created and consumed by a generation whose reading habits had consisted mostly of manga, or comic books. Critics said the dominance of cellphone novels, with their poor literary quality, would hasten the decline of Japanese literature.
著名文學期刊「文學界」在一月號的封面故事問道:「手機小說會殺死『作者』嗎?」書迷稱讚這些小說是新文學類型,由閱讀習慣多半是看漫畫書的世代創造和消費。批評者說,以手機小說差勁的文學素質,這類小說稱霸市場,將加速日本文學的沒落。


Whatever their literary talents, cellphone novelists are making the kind of sales that most more experienced novelists only dream of.
姑不論手機小說家文學才情如何,她們的銷售成績確是大多數更有經驗的小說家夢寐以求的。


Rin, 21, tapped out a novel on her cellphone that sold 400,000 copies in hardcover.

One such star, a 21-year-old woman named Rin, wrote “If You” over a six-month stretch during her senior year in high school. While commuting to her part-time job or in free moments, she tapped out passages on her cellphone and uploaded them on a Web site for would-be authors.
一位手機小說明星,筆名「凜」的21歲年輕女子,在高三時以六個月時間寫了「如果你」這部小說。她在去打工的通勤路上或閒暇時,把小說段落輸入手機,並上傳到為明日之星作家設的網站上。


Rin wrote her novel while commuting to her part-time job.

After cellphone readers voted her novel No. 1 in one ranking, her story of the tragic love between two childhood friends was turned into a 142-page hardcover book last year. It sold 400,000 copies and became the No. 5 best-selling novel of 2007, according to a closely watched list by Tohan, a major book distributor.
在手機讀者票選她的小說為一項排行榜的第一名後,她敘述兩個兒時玩伴之間的悲劇愛情故事,去年變成一本142頁的精裝書。根據大出版公司東販備受矚目的排行榜,這本書銷售40萬冊,成為2007年暢銷小說第五名。


“My mother didn’t even know that I was writing a novel,” said Rin, who, like many cellphone novelists, goes by only one name.
「凜」說:「我母親甚至不知道我在寫小說。」她和許多手機小說家一樣,只用單名。


“So at first when I told her, well, I’m coming out with a novel, she was like, what? She didn’t believe it until it came out and appeared in bookstores,” she added. The cellphone novel was born in 2000 after a home-page-making Web site, Maho noi-rando, realized that many users were writing novels on their blogs; it allowed users to upload works in progress and readers to comment, creating the serialized cellphone novel. But the number of users uploading novels began booming only two to three years ago, and the number of novels listed on the site reached one million in December.
她接著說:「因此當初我告訴她,我要出一本小說時,她的反應是,什麼?她不相信,直到書出版了,擺在書店裡。」在一家製作首頁的網站「魔法島」網站知道許多用戶正在他們的部落格上寫小說後,手機小說於2000年誕生;該網站讓用戶上傳正在進行中的作品,並讓讀者評論、創作連載的手機小說。但用戶上傳小說的數量在兩三年前才開始暴增,去年12月列在該網站的小說數量達到一百萬部。


A year ago, one of Starts Publishing’s young cellphone stars, Chaco, gave up her phone even though she could compose much faster with it by tapping with her thumb.
一年前,Starts出版公司的年輕手機小說明星Chaco已放棄用手機寫作,即便她用拇指在手機上按鍵寫作速度要快得多。


“Because of writing on the cellphone, her nail had cut into the flesh and became bloodied,” said Shigeru Matsushima, an editor at Starts. “Since she’s switched to a computer, her vocabulary’s gotten richer and her sentences have also grown longer.”
Starts編輯松島茂說:「由於在手機上寫小說,她的指甲陷入肉裡,變得血肉模糊,後來她改用電腦寫作,她的字彙變豐富了,句子也變長了。」
