易发游戏,  斯威夫特说:“多边主义总是能促进稳定。”他表示,中国上月在斯普拉特利群岛(即我南沙群岛)展开的最新一轮填海造岛活动不会阻止美国在该地区活动。

  当然,有些情况下根本不可能找到合适的合作伙伴,对链进行纵向整合就成为惟一的选择。白手起家创业点子  说句不客气的,中国就是向那些岛礁部署军事力量,美国又能怎么样?它还敢对那些岛礁直接采取不成?请太平洋司令部的哈里斯司令给奥巴马先生打个电话,问问他是否有那样的胆量吧。

Beyond World Cup, US Team Hopes for Greater Support for Women's Game

除了世界杯外,美国队希望给予女子比赛更大的支持

The U.S. women’s national soccer team began its effort to capture a fourth World Cup championship Tuesday with a record-breaking win.

美国国家女子足球队开始努力以创纪录的胜利夺取第四次世界杯冠军。

The U.S. beat Thailand 13-0 in the first round of Group F play.

在F组第一轮比赛中美国(女足)以13比0 的成绩击败泰国(女足)。

Along with winning championships and setting records, the U.S. women hope to break through barriers in their sport.

除了赢取冠军和创造纪录之外,美国女足还希望在她们的体育项目中突破一些障碍。

For years, professional women soccer players have suffered low pay and a lack of sponsorship deals. Such problems have a common source: the lack of a large audience.

多年来,职业女子足球运动员都面临着低报酬和缺乏赞助协议的不利局面。这些问题有一个共同的根源:女足的观众很少。

This year, however, could be different, as France holds the 2019 women’s World Cup event. FIFA, soccer’s governing body, is predicting one billion people will watch the games around the world. That would be an increase of over 30 percent from the 2015 women’s World Cup, held in Canada.

然而今年可能会不一样,因为法国举办了2019年女子世界杯。掌管足球的团体国际足球联盟预测全世界将有十亿人观看这些比赛。这将比2015年在加拿大举行的女子世界杯增加30%以上。

American soccer player and 2015 World Cup winner Julie Ertz says her team is thinking mainly about two things: winning and increasing the sport’s popularity.

2015年世界杯冠军美国足球运动员朱莉·厄茨说她的球队主要考虑两件事:赢得比赛和提高这项运动的受欢迎程度。

She said, “That’s been a huge goal of this team — to continue to grow the sport...It’s exciting to be a part of the growth of the sport.”

她说,“那已经成为这个球队的大目标——继续发展扩大这项运动……参与这项运动的发展壮大是一件令人很兴奋的事。”

The U.S. team is the most successful team in women’s soccer. They have won three World Cups since women joined the event in 1991, four Olympic golds in the last six Games and have topped the FIFA women's teams’ ratings every year but one for the last 11 years.

美国队是女足中最成功的一支队。自1991年女子参加比赛以来,她们赢得了三次世界杯冠军,在过去的六届奥运会上获得了四枚奥运金牌。并且在过去的11年间仅一次未获得国际足联女子队排名的第一名。

At an open training session, French children surrounded the U.S. players in hopes of getting autographs. They shouted for Alex Morgan, whose fearless way of playing has made her one of the biggest names in the sport.

在一次公开训练中,法国儿童围着美国运动员索要签名。他们大声喊着亚历克斯·摩根的名字。她在比赛中无所畏惧的表现已经使她拥有了这项运动中最响亮的名字。

Yet, even with their success, the American women earn much less prize money than the less successful U.S. men’s team.

然而,即使她们取得了成功,美国女足的奖金也远远少于不那么成功的美国男足。

In 2015, the women’s team made $2 million after becoming world champions. A year earlier, the men earned $9 million after losing in the Round of 16 of the World Cup event held in Brazil.

2015年,女足成为世界冠军后获得了200万美元。 一年前,男足在巴西举行的世界杯的第16轮比赛中输了比赛之后,仍获得了900万美元。

In a sign of growing recognition for the womens game, the prize money has doubled this year to $4 million. In comparison, France’s victorious men’s team earned $38 million in 2018.

女子比赛越来越受到认可的一个迹象为今年的奖金翻了一倍为400万美元。相比之下,2018年法国男子队赢得比赛之后赢得了3800万奖金。

American player Lindsey Horan said this year’s World Cup, “in itself is going to change things for women’s soccer, how we play and how the world sees us.”

美国运动员林赛·霍兰表示今年的世界杯“本身将会给女足带来一些改变,如我们如何比赛以及世界如何看待我们。”
