三位美国总统难猜普京之谜 - 纽约时报中文网 国际纵览

Annotations:
  • 在某种程度上来说,现在华盛顿已经不对他抱有任何幻想。那些幻想最终不可避免地被普京对克里米亚的占领,和随后的相互制裁所打破。俄罗斯军队现在集结在乌克兰边境,当下争论的焦点从如何与他共事变成了如何与他对抗。
  • 但布什不愿放弃,即便他身边的人再也看不到他所说的机会。他的新国防部长罗伯特·M·盖茨(Robert M. Gates)在结束与普京的第一次会晤后,告诉同事,与布什不同,他“直视普京的双眼,就像我预料的那样,我看到了一个冷血杀手”。

     

  • 默克尔私下告诉奥巴马,在与普京交谈过后,她认为普京生活在“另一个世界”。国务卿约翰·克里(John Kerry)后来公开表示,普京有关克里米亚的讲话“与现实不符”。

  2.  
  3. Infrastructure such as databases, big data management, cloud computing, and software development tools.

  6.  
  7. Marketing Middleware such as DMPs, CDPs, tag management, cloud connectors, user management, and API services.

  9. Marketing Experiences — more specialized technologies that directly affect prospects and customers across their lifecycle, such as advertising, email, social media, SEO, content marketing, A/B testing, marketing apps — the “front-office” of modern marketing.
  10.  
  11. Marketing Operations — the tools and data for managing the “back-office” of marketing, such as analytics, MRM, DAM, and agile marketing management.

Operation Entebbe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Annotations:
  • In August 2012, Uganda and Israel commemorated the raid at a somber ceremony at the base of a tower at the Old Entebbe Airport, where Yonatan Netanyahu was killed.

In addition, wreaths were laid, a moment of silence was held, speeches were given, and a poem was recited.

The ceremony was attended by Ugandan State Minister for Animal Industry Bright Rwamirama and the deputy Foreign Affairs Minister of Israel Daniel Ayalon, who laid wreaths at the site.[75]

Strange but True: The Largest Organism on Earth Is a Fungus - Scientific American

Annotations:
  • The discovery of this giant Armillaria ostoyae in 1998 heralded a new record holder for the title of the world's largest known organism, believed by most to be the 110-foot- (33.5-meter-) long, 200-ton blue whale. Based on its current growth rate, the fungus is estimated to be 2,400 years old but could be as ancient as 8,650 years, which would earn it a place among the oldest living organisms as well.
