Com Brexit, Reino Unido seguirá 2 anos por trilha nunca antes explorada

Transcript:

Once Article 50 has been triggered the UK has just two years to negotiate its exit from the EU. No country has ever tried this before. It’s a very complicated process: first the European Council, which is made up of the EU’s 27 leaders, agrees guidelines for the negotiations. Then the European Commission then negotiates with the UK on behalf of the EU. Together they will need to unpick 43 years of treaties and agreements.

Given what's unfolding in Syria - you might be surprised to hear the country still has a national football team, competing for a place in next year's World Cup. For obvious reasons - they can't play on home soil, but they're still giving many Syrians a reason to come together. Last week they were in Malaysia, preparing for a World Cup qualifier against Uzbekistan, and they’ve just been in Seoul for their match against South Korea.

Here is the new pound coin, and it does have some special security features, apart from being twelve-sided and two-coloured, it's got very small writing on it, and it has a sort of hologram with the pound sign at the bottom, and a special feature inside which means that coin machines can recognise whether it's genuine or not – and that's important, because there are so many fakes of the old pound coin.

Transcrição para o português:

Agora que o Artigo 50 foi acionado, o Reino Unido tem apenas dois anos para negociar sua saída da União Europeia. Nenhum país tinha tentado isso antes. É um processo bastante complicado: primeiro, o Conselho Europeu, composto pelos 27 líderes da UE, tem de aprovar diretrizes para as negociações. Depois, a Comissão Europeia negocia com o Reino Unido em nome da UE. Juntos, eles terão de esmiuçar 43 anos de tratados e acordos.

Dado o que está ocorrendo na Síria, você pode ficar surpreso ao ouvir que o país ainda tem uma seleção nacional de futebol, competindo por uma vaga na próxima Copa do Mundo. Por razões óbvias, eles não podem jogar em casa, mas continuam dando uma boa razão para que vários sírios se juntem. Na semana passada, eles estiveram na Malásia, se preparando para um jogo das eliminatórias para a Copa, contra o Uzbequistão, e eles estiveram em Seul para o jogo contra a Coreia do Sul.

Aqui está a nova moeda de 1 libra, e ela tem algumas medidas especiais de segurança, além de ter 12 arestas e duas cores, leva inscrições microscópicas e tem uma espécie de holograma com o sinal da libra na parte de baixo, e uma característica especial em seu interior que permite que máquinas de moedas reconheçam se ela é genuína ou não – e isso é importante, por causa da grande quantidade de moedas falsas da libra antiga.
