9/11恐袭20周年之际,四架被劫持客机之一的”联合航空93号班机“登上维基封面。重温历史,以史为鉴。

On this 20th anniversary of 9/11, “United Airlines Flight 93” has been properly chosen as “today’s featured article” on Wikipedia’s main page to commemorate the 2,977 victims killed on that fateful day that would forever change the world as the American people knew it.

United Airlines Flight 93 was the only one of the four airplanes hijacked on 11 September 2001 that didn’t reach its intended target, the US Capital Hill in Washington, D.C.; it instead crashed into an open field in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. All 40 people onboard (excluding the four hijackers) were killed after their heroic but failed attempt to regain control of the plane.

威廉四世(英国国王、乔治三世第三子)。不熟悉,但毕竟是大英帝国的国王。

William IV, or William Henry, was one of the numerous kings churned out in the long and complicated history of the United Kingdom, many of whom are unfamiliar even to well-educated UK natives.

Wikipedia seems to favor UK rulers over US presidents—few US presidents’ pages are decorated with a bronze star, while at least four of William IV’s close relatives are honored as such, including his father George III, elder brother George IV, niece Queen Victoria, and younger brother Ernest Augustus.

"莴苣“。常见事物成为维基星标文章并不多见。

Two interesting facts in the article stand out:

  1. The Romans imported the plant from ancient Egypt as a food crop and gave its name “lactuca”, from which the modern English word “lettuce” is derived.
  2. World production of lettuce and chicory for 2017 was 27 million tonnes, 56% of which came from China.
