因为想考翻译证,最近很喜欢看China Daily,也很喜欢把China Daily中颇有意思的新闻抄录下来练笔。

之前用茄子说的方法,把新闻中不懂的单词抄下来,以首字母排好,然后按字母顺序一个一个地背。这样在背完A字母的单词后,看新闻就不会再出现一个以A开头而我又不懂的单词了。这个方法听起来好像很玄乎,但真照着做了大半年,发现现在看新闻真的几乎没有一个不懂的以A开头的单词了。好神奇……

当然,我不是说茄子说这个方法真有多好,只是觉得把背单词和看新闻结合在一起,还挺有意思的,而且从某个奇怪的方面而言,可是相当有成就感的哦!因为新闻的用语比较固定,同一类话题中,单词出现的重复率可是相当高的哦!

熊孩子,趁着立夏的热量,开始学习吧!


Please write down your wild guess on words below, and check it out after you finish reading news.

Operation Fox Hunt 2015

Chinese police departments have brought back 150 economic fugitives from 32 countries since the beginning of the year and intensified their efforts to curb economic crimes.

Eight of the suspects had been on the run for more than 10 years, and 44 of them were involved in cases relating to tens of millions of yuan.

Gao Feng, the political commissar of the economic crimes bureau at the Public Security Ministry, said the result is part of the campaign dubbed Operation Fox Hunt 2015 that sought to hunt down suspects who absconded to foreign countries with their ill-gotten gains.

Gao said China will continue to work with other countries to repatriate economic crime suspects and assist the operation of Sky Net launched by China's top anti-graft authority.

The ministry announced an "unprecedented" haul of 680 suspects, who absconded to 69 countries and regions, from July to December in Operation Fox Hunt 2014, 4.5 times the total number in 2013. Among them were 117 suspects who had been at large for more than a decade and 390 people who turned themselves in.

The ministry also stressed their efforts in cracking down on domestic economic crime, which has risen sharply in recent years and caused enormous economic loss to people and various entities.

A total number of 100,000 economic crime cases involving nearly 192 billion yuan ($31 billion) have been dealt with, mainly illegally fundraising from the public, credit card fraud, producing fake commodities and currency in the Chinese mainland, Gao said.

Illegally soliciting money from the public is the toughest economic crime for the police to deal with because the culprits usually solicit money under the guise of attractive investments, he said, adding that these crimes frequently occur in sectors such as investment consultation, investment guarantees and online loans.

Cases of deliberate overdrafts on credit cards increased by more than 50 percent in some provinces last year, according to the ministry. Counterfeit credit cards rings were found to be producing fake cards with upgraded technology, making it hard for banks to detect.




Sentence-Making: Please make sentences with words below.

abscond

solicit

culprit

 

In my humble opinion, the fast growth and convenience of internet "create" chances and spaces for culprits to commit their economic crimes, which would be both hard to detect and tough to be eradicated. That might be the reason why our government wants to safeguade the cybersecurity eagerly. There is a similar case in the building where my company locates. Everyday, many old people rush to a so-call investment company lies in 2F and 3F, where, according to their words, would provide investment projects with high returns, including oil exploitation programs, land development project and so on. Frankdly speaking, I don't believe these. If those investment projects are really worth to do and with high returns, why not recommand them to those who with more financial advantages, for example, mid-aged businessmen, instead of those too old to analysis rights from wrongs? To tell you the truth, maybe I should blow the whistle and have relative governmental departments involved to check it out.
