                    Twitter lodged a lawsuit against Elon Musk that seeks to force him to complete his takeover of the company for $44bn.

                    推特對埃隆·馬斯克提起訴訟,試圖迫使他以440億美元的價格完成對該公司的收購。

                    Mr Musk has broken off the deal, accusing Twitter of breaching their agreement by not disclosing the number of fake and spam accounts on its platform, which he insists is much higher than the company’s estimate of 5%.

                    馬斯克已經終止了這筆交易,他指責推特違反了協議,沒有披露推特平臺上的虛假賬號和垃圾賬戶數量,他堅稱這一數字遠遠高于該公司估計的5%。

                    In its suit Twitter described Mr Musk’s complaints as “imaginary conditions”, called his actions a mark of “disdain” and said that his “exit strategy is a model of hypocrisy”.

                    推特在訴訟中將馬斯克的怨言描述為“虛構的條件”,稱他的行為是“蔑視”的標志,并表示他的“退出戰略是虛偽的典范”。

                    America’s annual inflation rate as measured by the consumer-price index leapt to 9.1% in June from 8.6% in May.

                    以消費者價格指數衡量的美國年度通貨膨脹率從5月份的8.6%躍升至6月份的9.1%。

                    The jump was bigger than had been expected by most economists and adds to pressure on the Federal Reserve to increase interest rates at a faster clip.

                    這一增幅超出了多數經濟學家的預期,增加了美聯儲以更快速度加息的壓力。

                    The price of petrol rose by 11% in June over the previous month, but since then pump prices have reversed.

                    It was the biggest rise under a policy regime that started in 1999.

                    安德魯·貝利承諾,英格蘭銀行將不惜一切代價讓英國的通貨膨脹率回到2%的目標(目前的年通貨膨脹率為9.1%)。

                    The central bank’s governor suggested that this may well mean sharper increases to interest rates than the quarter of a percentage point rises that it has implemented recently.
