闪孕 (shan3 yun4) (来源:英语麦当劳-英语杂志 http://www.EnglishCN.com)

quick pregnancy

It refers to some white-collar women who get pregnant in a hurry to avoid being fired. China’s labor law prevents a company from firing a pregnant employee unless the company isinsolvent.

闪孕,即突击怀孕、将“生子计划”提前,是一些白领为躲避经济危机中的裁员风险,突击怀孕。根据劳动法规定:女员工在孕期、产期、哺乳期间如果被裁,可以申请劳动仲裁,要求单位经济补偿。这就是职场女性突击怀孕的最大理由。

躲猫猫 (duo3 mao1 mao1)

hide-and-seek

The Chinese term for “hide-and-seek” has become abuzzwordovernight among Chinese Netizens after a 24-year-old man died in policecustodyin south China’s Yunnan Province and an official report said he ran into a wall blindfolded while playing hide-and-seek withinmates. Unconvinced, a large number of Netizens are taking part in an investigation into the young man’s death. The investigation showed he was beaten to death by inmates while playing the game.

“躲猫猫”意为捉迷藏,属南方方言,北方则称作“藏猫猫”。不管“躲”还是“藏”,这种游戏显然来自于猫和老鼠捉与被捉的游戏。当这个游戏发生在2009 年2月8日下午的云南省晋宁县看守所里时,却引发了一场悲剧:据当地警方说,因盗伐森林被拘押的24岁男子李乔明,和同监室的狱友在天井里玩“躲猫猫”游戏时,遭到狱友踢打并不小心撞到墙壁,导致“重度颅脑损伤”,送医四天后不治身亡。
