大发彩票娱乐合法吗，>bars switch to pasta straws
at a time when the world searches for ways to reduce plastic waste, pasta straws might be one of the answers.
many bars in italy are starting to use straws made from wheat that are 100% biodegradable. 意大利的许多酒吧已经开始使用这种由小麦制成，百分百生物可降解的吸管。
the straws are the same shape and size as a standard plastic straw. they don't change the flavor of the drink. 这种吸管的形状和尺寸与标准塑料吸管的相同,不会改变饮料的味道。
the pasta straws last 1 hour in cold drinks, and the colder the drink, the longer one can use them. 喝冷饮时，意面吸管可以保持1小时不变软，而且饮品越凉，吸管的使用时间就越长。
due to the risk of burns, it is generally not recommended to drink hot drinks through a straw, though totally fine to use the straw for a few seconds to stir coffee. 至于热饮，因为有烫伤的危险，所以一般不建议使用吸管。但如果是用于搅拌咖啡等热饮，这种短短几秒的操作对于意面吸管来说是完全没有问题的。
if you're nursing a drink for hours and the pasta eventually softens, you can even choose to eat it.如果你一杯饮料喝了几个小时，这根意面吸管最终软化了，你可以选择吃掉它。

the international monetary fund (imf) on tuesday lowered its global growth forecast for 2019 to 3% in the newly-released world economic outlook report, down 0.2 percentage point from its estimation in july.
noting that this is the slowest pace since the global financial crisis, imf chief economist gita gopinath said that "growth continues to be weakened by rising trade barriers and growing geopolitical tensions." imf首席经济学家吉塔•戈皮纳特指出，这是全球金融危机爆发以来的最低水平，她还表示，贸易壁垒上升和地缘政治紧张局势不断升级会使经济增长继续放缓。
advanced economies continue to slow toward their long-term potential, with growth downgraded to 1.7% this year, the report showed. growth in emerging market and developing economies has also been revised down to 3.9% for 2019. 报告显示，发达经济体长期潜力持续放缓，今年经济增速放缓至1.7%。新兴市场和发展中经济体2019年的增长预期也被下调至3.9%。
"to rejuvenate growth, policymakers must undo the trade barriers put in place with durable agreements, rein in geopolitical tensions, and reduce domestic policy uncertainty," she said.戈皮纳特称，要使经济恢复增长，政策制定者须通过持久的协议消除贸易壁垒、控制地缘政治紧张局势并减少国内政策不确定性。
