考研英语阅读真题中的文章,多摘自英美主流外刊,有时分你认识一切单词、搞清全部语法还不够,还需要了解英美文化,掌握他们的表达方式,这就是阅读的潜台词。有时分是一些俗语和俚语,有时分是固定搭配,有时分需要借助历史、习俗、文化才干了解某种现象或表达。总之,这些地道的英语文章背后都有潜台词,一般人不容易读出,但往往是了解文章的关键。

  AP wins Pulitzer Prize for ’Seafood from Slaves’ investigation

  美联社赢得2016普利策奖:东南亚血汗海鲜工厂报道

  导读:你吃的每一条鱼和虾,可能都有另一个人的血和泪——4月18日,新闻界最高荣誉普利策奖发布,由美联社4名女记者揭露东南亚海鲜业中的劳工奴役现象,取得了今年最高荣誉“公共效劳”奖。这组冒着生命危险写出来的报道,揭开了泰国海洋水产品捕捞行业里普遍存在了几十年的罪恶行径,挽救了2000多名被囚禁、被优待的劳奴。

  The Associated Press today won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service based on its international investigation of the fishing industry in Southeast Asia that freed more than 2,000 slaves and traced the seafood they caught to supermarkets and pet food providers across the U.S.

  因美联社对东南亚捕鱼业中止的国际调查最终促使2000余名劳工获救,报道还追踪了劳工们所捕获的海鲜产品进入到美国各地的超市和宠物食品供给商,今天(4月18日),美联社取得了普利策公共效劳奖。

  The achievement is the 52nd Pulitzer Prize won by AP.

  这是美联社第52次取得普利策新闻奖殊荣。

  The reporting by Esther Htusan, Margie Mason, Robin McDowell and Martha Mendoza also led to the arrests of a dozen people, the seizure of ships worth millions of dollars and the introduction of legislation in the U.S. Congress to create greater transparency from food suppliers.

  在美联社记者Esther Htusan、Martha Mendoza、Robin McDowell和Martha Mendoza的报道后,十多名立功者被抓捕,价值数百万美金的船只被没收,也引发了美国国会在食品供给方面发明更大的透明度。

  "The AP journalists accomplished two goals that had eluded others," AP Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll wrote in her nomination letter to the Pulitzer judges. "They found captive slaves, countering industry claims that the problems had been solved. And they followed specific loads of slave-caught seafood to supply chains of particular brands and stores, so companies no longer could deny culpability."

  美联社高级副总裁兼执行编辑Kathleen Carroll 在写给普利策评委组的提名信中这样说:“美联社记者完成了两个超越一切的目的:第一他们发现了被关押的劳奴,回击了那些行业里老是宣称的‘问题已经处置了’。第二他们对劳奴捕捞的海鲜食品穷追不舍,以至追踪到供给链上的特定品牌、商店,所以公司再不可能承认罪恶的存在。”

  The reporters put themselves at personal risk as they investigated. They were chased by company officials threatening to ram them with their speedboat after fishermen aboard a trawler begged for their help. For four days, they hid in the back of a truck to log the names of ships loaded with tainted seafood, hiding from gunmen from the fish mafia.

  在整个调查过程中,记者无数次将自己置于危险境地,处于生死一线。在作业船上的打渔劳奴向她们祈求协助时,记者遭到打渔公司管理人员的跟踪与威胁,他们宣称要用快艇弄翻记者的船。四位记者还曾躲在卡车后整整四天,规避渔业公司雇佣的持枪黑手党,就为了搞分明到底是哪条船将运送那些受污染的海产品。

  The reporters tracked the trucks to cold storage and processing factories and, using customs records and business databases, traced the cargo to U.S. distributors.

  这些记者经过跟踪卡车,找到冷藏仓库和处置工厂,经过通关记载和企业数据库,找到运送给美国分销商的货车。

  "With courage, integrity and tenacity, this team of journalists has shaken up the $7 billion-a-year Thai seafood export industry, engaged governments, corporations and consumers," Carroll wrote.

  Carroll 写道,“仰仗着勇气、正义感和百折不挠的肉体,这支记者队伍动摇了这个每年70亿美圆资金流量的泰国海鲜产业。这组报道牵涉到政府部门、企业和消费者。”

  Before publishing the first story in March 2015, AP sought help from the International Organization for Migration to rescue the men on the Indonesian island of Benjina who were quoted. The reporters returned to Benjina a week later when hundreds of other slaves were evacuated.
