咬咬牙!最后的坚持!

发表于2017-12-13 3256次查看

就一句话:咬咬牙,坚持住!

一篇文章的回顾:

纽约现任市长Billde Blasio自当选以来就争议不断,今天的经济学人杂志有一篇关于他的文章,标题是这样的:How’s he doin’? Quite well,though New Yorkers think otherwise 配图文字是:It depends on whom you ask.也就表明了文章的作者对他的态度是支持的;而纽约市民对他的看法确实多样的。

这篇文章谈到:

The city has just had its safest summer in 20 years. Crime continues to fall. School test scores are up.Why are so many New Yorkers seemingly convinced that their prospering city is on the verge of ruin?

词汇讲解:beon the verge of ruin (在毁灭的边缘.)

解析:这段谈到了在他的治理下,纽约市的各项指标都不错。但是市民却会觉得这个繁荣的城市会毁灭。

接着作者是这样分析的:

Part of the reason is thatthey have been predicting it since before Mr de Blasio was elected.

部分原因是在这位市长上任之前市民们就预测到这点了。(很多纽约市民对他本来就没有信心)

There is a lack of confidence in how themayor is managing municipal services.

人们对于这位市长如何管理市政服务也是缺乏信心的。

New York has seen an increase inhomelessness.

纽约无家可归的人也在增长

Homelessness, and the memories of Mr deBlasio’s radical campaigning, smother all good news.

无家可归的人以及市长先生过去那些激进的活动扼杀了所有的好消息。

A police officer recently tackled to theground a retired (black) tennis star as

he waited for a limousine to transporthim to Flushing Meadows to watch the US Open, mistaking him for a credit-cardthief. Mr de Blasio handled the incident well: he apologised and the cop, fornow, has been put on desk duty.

最近一位退役的黑人网球明星在等一辆豪车接他去Flushing Meadows 看美国网球公开赛的时候,一位警官误以为他是盗窃信用卡的窃贼,直接把他给放倒在地。市长先生在这件事情上处理的很好:他做出了道歉而且。这位警官已经让做笔录了。

但是文章最后一句这样说道:

His approval ratings have never beenlower.

他的支持率已然是最低的了。

这说明市民对他的认可还是不高啊!
