The supermarket is designed to lure customers into spending as much time as possible within its doors. The reason for this is simple:The longer you stay in the store, the more stuff you’ll see, and the more stuff you see, the more you’ll buy. And supermarkets contain a lot of stuff. The average supermarket, according to the Food Marketing Institute, carries some 44,00 different items, and many carry tens of thousands more. The sheer volume of available choice is enough to send shoppers into a state of information overload. According to brain-scan experiments, the demands of so much decision-making quickly become too much for us. After about 40 minutes of shopping, most people stop struggling to be rationally selective, and instead begin shopping emotionally – which is the point at which we accumulate the 50 percent of stuff in our cart that we never intended buying.
Suppose you won a translation contest and your friend, Jack, wrote an email to congratulate you and ask for advice on translation. Write him a reply to
1) thank him, and
2) give advice.
You should write neatly on the ANSWER SHEET.
Do not sign your own name at the end of the text. Use “Li Ming” instead.
Do not write the address.(10 points)
Thank you for your warm congratulation on my winning the translation contest. Now I will give you some advice on translation.
To begin with, you should have an earnest interest in translation, for, just as Einstein says, interest is the best teacher. Besides, you should have an extensive reading on the two languages, because accurate translation demands that you should have a good grasp of the two languages and the culture related to the two languages. Moreover, you should grasp essential translation techniques, which will facilitate the translating process.
I hope that you can acquire some more understanding of translation via my advice.
As can be apparently illustrated /depicted in the pie graph, the purposes of the students of a college can be divided into five parts, with admiring the scenery and relieving the pressure, making friends, developing their independent capabilities and the rest accounting for 37 %, 33%, 6%, 9% and 15 % respectively. Isolated as the figures seem to be in the pie graph, as a matter of fact, they are connected with one another closely.
Obviously, a variety of complicated factors contribute to the phenomenon illustrated in the chart above, with the following two ones being the foremost. To begin with, among the most convincing reasons offered by people for this phenomenon, one should be emphasized that the improvement of our society and the progress of science and technology put the most pressure on the college students, which make them tired and bored toward their work and study. In addition to this, another equally vital point to be considered is that college students’ attitudes towards travel constitute a major reason for the phenomenon.
Just as an old proverb says, “every coin has its two sides.” The situation of college students’ traveling is no exception. From what has been discussed above, what we should pay attention is to encourage the positive effects and eliminate its negative influence as far as possible.
