Many cars in advertisements are red, blue or green —but almost 75 percent of new cars sold are black, white, silver or grey.
A survey shows people prefer the car colors that don’t show dirt such as grey. That means the owners can wash their cars less, saving money. Besides, some areas that are short of water do not allow people to wash their cars often.
According to another survey, white cars are often sold more than cars of other colors. In China, car buyers say white makes a small car look bigger. Car buyers in other countries also like white. And the research also suggests that there is a lower risk of accidents during the day for white cars compared with darker ones. People also think the temperature inside white cars is lower than that in cars of other colors.
At present, every year about 11 percent of cars sold are red and 8 percent are blue. Green has become less popular. In the mid 1990s, green was the most popular color in many places of the world. But today, green cars are hard to find.
Sometime in the future, people may not have to choose the color of their car—technology may let owners change their cars’ paint color anytime.

“My heart was pricked, Laotie.” Do you know what it means? The phrase was one of the hottest Internet slang phrases(俚语) in 2017. The National Language Resources Monitoring and Research Center has released its list of the top 10 most-used slang phrases. These words show us some of the trends(潮流) that took place in 2017.Let’s see what they are and how they became popular.
Beat a call
The phrase “beat a call” is used to show support for people or things. It came from Japanese. It refers to a cheering dance performed by “otaku”, or people who are crazy about pop culture. They jump, clap and wave glow sticks(荧光棒). In October, Xinhua News Agency used the phrase in an article about the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China(党的十九大), which made the phrase even more popular.
My heart was pricked, Laotie.
The word “Laotie” comes from northern Chinese dialect(方言) and means “good friends”. “Pricked heart” used to mean “hurting someone’s feelings”. The phrase has been used often on video-streaming(视频播放) websites. It is now used between close friends who jokingly complain about each other.
