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!

Lawyers 'tried to influence verdicts'

A group suspected of disturbing public order and making profits by illegally hiring protesters in an attempt to influence court decisions has been broken up, the top public security authority said.
The suspects include lawyers who acted as organizers, social media users who planned operations and people who posed as petitioners, the Ministry of Public Security said on Saturday.
The group, led by attorneys from Beijing Fengrui Law Firm, are accused of trying to create social conflict by using paid protesters, trying to influence public sentiment and spreading rumors, a statement from the ministry said.
The lawyers detained include Zhou Shifeng, the firm's director, and his colleagues Liu Sixin, Huang Liqun, Wang Yu and Wang Quanzhang. Zhou is suspected of being involved in other suspected felonies being probed.
The lawyers allegedly organized more than 40 incidents across the country since July 2012. One involved a case in which a lawful police shooting at a railway station in Heilongjiang province was claimed to be a murder conspiracy, the ministry said.
Li Lebin, an officer in Qing'an, shot Xu Chunhe to death after Xu attacked him. Rumors spread online alleging that Li opened fire at Xu on the orders of an official because Xu was a petitioner.
The ministry said Zhai Yanmin, one of the suspects, had confirmed that the group of lawyers was responsible for the rumors.
Wu Gan, a popular social media user known for stirring up controversy, was asked to post messages and offered to pay 100,000 yuan ($16,100) for any video clips that captured the incident, it is alleged.
Zhai hired people who posed as petitioners to shout slogans and hold signs to support the lawyers involved in the case. One "petitioner", surnamed Li, said she received 600 yuan for carrying a sign, the ministry said.
Others filmed "mass incidents" and posted clips on overseas websites in an attempt to manipulate public opinion, it added.
Ruan Chuansheng, a Shanghai lawyer, said some lawyers used illegal measures to support their defense work. The attorneys association should enhance supervision and prevent some lawyers damaging the image of the whole profession, Ruan added.


Sentence-Making: Please make sentences with words below.

It's quite understandable that whose beloved families were hurt want something to pacify their sorrow. But it seems sadder if such intention was taken advantage of and was conspired by others with selfishness. I know it's easy to say than to do, but everyone facing with terrible lost should calm down and find justice in accordance with the laws, to avoid the expanding of the misfortune.
