A lot of camps and summer programs for kids seem to have discovered that among the most valuable things they offer is what they don't offer. No Wi-Fi. No grades. No hovering parents or risk managers or parents who parent like risk managers.

许多针对儿童的夏令营和夏季计划似乎已经发现,他们提供的最有价值的东西是他们不提供的东西. 没有Wi-Fi. 没有成绩. 没有盘旋的父母或风险管理者,也没有像风险管理者这样的父母.

Time dissolves in summer anyway: days are long, weekends longer. Hours get all thin and watery when you are lost in the book you'd never otherwise have time to read. Senses are sharper - something about the moist air and bright light and fruit in season - and so memories stir and startle.

无论如何,时间在夏天消散:天长,周末长. 当您迷失在书中时,时间会变得稀薄而浪费,否则您将没有时间阅读. 感官更加敏锐-潮湿的空气,季节明亮的光线和水果-令记忆震撼.

Calling Rand Paul 'the most interesting man in politics' is an invitation to an argument - but one we suspect he'd love to have.

称兰德·保罗为“政治上最有趣的人”是一种争论的邀请,但我们怀疑他会喜欢的.
