罗琳与丈夫Neil Murray

The British royal family presented author J.K. Rowling with a Companion of Honor award at Buckingham Palace in London, UK.
The “Harry Potter” author received the prestigious award from Prince William on Tuesday, as recognition of her services to literature and philanthropy.
Rowling said in a statement that she was “deeply honored and proud” to receive the honor.
“To be included in the distinguished and diversely talented company of the other Companions of Honour, especially as a female writer, is a particular privilege,” she said.
The Order of the Companions of Honor was founded in 1917 by George V and is given to those who have made a major contribution in their field, according to the royal family’s website.
There are only 65 members at any one time, and current members include Maggie Smith (who also has a Harry Potter connection — she played Professor Minerva McGonagall in the film series based on Rowling’s books) and Stephen Hawking.
马上学:Prestigious意指“有声望的”、“有名望的”。例:a prestigious literary award(颇具声望的文学奖);a prestigious university(享有盛誉的大学)。

The heart wants what it wants: new Selena Gomez music!
During a recent interview with BBC’s The Radio 1 Breakfast Show With Nick Grimshaw, Gomez revealed, “There is no might, there is an album.”
“And I think it’s fair to say that people know the year I’ve had, and I’ve poured my heart into my music and I wanted it to be fresh,” continued the 25-year-old American. “It wasn’t really about charts for me or numbers. It was more just about what I could creatively do for my music. So, yes, I can successfully say that my inspiration for this next album is in full motion and it will be very soon.”
Gomez revealed earlier this year that, due to lupus complications, she’d received a kidney transplant from her best friend, Francia Raisa, over the summer.
The singer returned to the stage for the first time in November, performing for the American Music Awards. The staging of her single “Wolves” marked Gomez’s first live performance in more than a year, as she had stepped away from the spotlight to deal with her health crisis.
马上学:Staging意指“上演”、“演出”,例:The production is a modern staging of the fairy tale "Cinderella".(这部剧是童话故事《灰姑娘》的现代版。)

American actor George Clooney and his wife, Amal Clooney, were well-meaning parents, handing out headphones to their fellow passengers to apologize for having their 6-month-old twins on board.
The couple passed out noise-canceling headphones during a recent flight to Amal’s native England, a source confirms to PEOPLE.
On Tuesday, the actor’s best friend and Casamigos co-founder Rande Gerber revealed just how generous the first-time father really is.
Gerber recalled a time in 2013 when Clooney gifted his closest friends one million dollars each, even paying their taxes for the year.
“There’s a group of guys we call ‘The Boys,’” Gerber said during a recent chat on MSNBC’s Headliners show. “George had called me and ‘The Boys’ and said, ‘Hey, mark September 27th, 2013, on your calendar. Everyone’s going to come to my house for dinner.’ George begins to say, ‘Listen, I want you guys to know how much you’ve meant to me and how much you mean to me in my life,’” recalled the restaurateur.
“‘I came to L.A., I slept on your couch. I’m so fortunate in my life to have all of you and I couldn’t be where I am today without all of you. So, it was really important to me that while we’re still all here together, that I give back. So I want you all to open your suitcases,’” Clooney said, according to Gerber. “We open it up, and it’s $1 million dollars in $20 bills. Every one of us – 14 of us – got $1 million. Every single one of us. We’re in shock.”
马上学:Well-meaning意指“善意的”、“出于好心的”,例:Even well-meaning attempts at conservation can bring problems. (即使是出于善意想开展自然保护也可能会引来麻烦。)
