Section A
【文章来源】本文选自2014年3月13日TIME(((时代》)上的一篇文章,标题为“Let Kids Run Wild Online”(《让孩子们在网络上疯狂》)。
36.【考点】名词辨析题。J)【语法判断】空格位于代词this之后.据此推断可    以填入名词.作put的宾语.构成put...into    practice的结构:【语义判断】第一句。那些没有击垮我们的东西会    使我们更加强大”是一句俗语.表达了一种人生哲    学=备选名词中.符合句意的只有philosoph}。人    生哲学”:

  Section B
  【文章来源】本文选自2014年6月27日The New York Times(《纽约时报》)上的一篇文章,标题为“Inequality Is  Not Inevitable”(《不平等并非不可避免》)。

  B) (50)在过去一年半的时间里,《纽约时报》中的“大鸿沟”系列报道为我们提供了很多削弱一个观点的事例.这一观点是:美国有真正意义上的资本主义的基本法律。l9世纪帝国资本主义的动态不再适用于21世纪的民主国家。美国不需要如此巨大的不平等。
  C)  我们现在的这种资本主义并非真正的资本主义。想要证明这一点,可以回顾我们在经济大萧条时期的反应:我们将损失社会化,尽管收益还是私有化的。(46)最好的竞争应该是使利润趋于零,至少理论上是这样,但是我们的垄断行业还在持续赚取高额利润。公司总裁享受着平均是普通工人的295倍的收入,这个比例远远高于过去,而没有任何证据表明他们的生产力在成比例地增长。
  E)  那么,为什么美国要选择这些促使社会更加不平等的政策呢?部分原因在于随着二战逐渐淡出人们的记忆,二战带来的团结也不复存在了。(48)由于美国在冷战中大胜,似乎我们的经济体制已没有真正的竞争对手。没有了这种国际竞争,我们就没有必要证明我们的体制能够为大多数公民带来利益 F)  意识形态和利益发生了恶意结合。有些人从1991年苏联解体事件中吸取了错误的教训。(53)政府干预经济的力度从太大转变为太小。企业利益要求摆脱经济干预,即便这些干预对保护和提高我们的环境、安全、健康以及经济本身起到了很大的作用。
  I) 我们的分化程度很深:(49)经济和地理分隔使得上层人群免受底层人群问题的困扰。正如古代的国王.她们认为自己的优越地位本质上是一种与生俱来的权利。
  J)我们的经济、民主和社会已经为这些严重的不平等付出了代价。对一个经济体的真正考量,不是看它的统治者们能从税收庇护所中积累多少财富,而是要看普通民众生活得怎么样。但是,人均收入却比25年前更低了。增长的是位于社会最上层的人们的收入,他们的收入自1980年以来已经增长了近4倍。本该向下渗透(注:富人的财富逐渐惠及穷人)的财富却在开曼群岛宜人的气候中凭空消失了。 K)5岁以下的美国儿童中,有四分之一生活在贫困中,而美国为其穷人所做的少之又少。因此,穷人的下一代依旧贫困。(55)当然,没有任何一个国家能够达到提供完全平等的机会的目标。但是,为什么在美国这样一个发达国家中,年轻人的生活前景却几乎完全取决于他们父母的收入和受教育程度呢? L)在“大鸿沟”系列报道中,最悲伤的故事莫过于那些描述年轻人的沮丧的故事。这些年轻人渴望跻身    于不断缩水的中产阶级行列。骤增的学费和不断降低的收入使人们背负着更加沉重的债务负担。那    些只有高中文凭的人们的收入在过去的35年中降低了13%。
  N)(54)公平已经变成了一种商品,但只有少数人才买得起。华尔街的主管利用他们要价高昂的律师来保证他们这一阶层不为自己的恶行承担责任时(2008年的金融危机非常清晰地揭示出他们的恶行),而银行则滥用了我们的法律体系来取消抵押贷款的赎回权,并把房客驱逐出去,而有些房客甚至没有欠款。 o)半个多世纪以前,美国率先支持联合国在1948年通过的《世界人权宣言》。如今,医疗保健权是最被普遍接受的权利之一,至少在发达国家是这样。而美国,虽然也实施了《平价医疗法案》,却是个例外。很多人在最高法院没有推翻《平价医疗法案》的时候感到一丝欣慰,但有关医疗补助制度的决议的暗示并未得到充分重视。奥巴马医改的目标——确保所有的美国人都能获得医疗保健服务——受到了阻碍:24个州没有实施扩大医疗补助项目,奥巴马医改本想通过这种方式来兑现其对一些最贫穷的    人们的承诺。
  Q)不平等问题并非一个技术经济学问题。它实际上是一个实用政治学的问题。不平等不仅关乎最高边  际税率,而且关乎我们的孩子能否获得食物及所有人的公平权。如果我们能在教育、卫生和基础设施方面花费更多,那么我们现在和将来就能更好地加强我们的经济。
46.【定位】由题干中的competition和profits定位到 C)段第三句。C)【精析】同义转述题。定位句指出,最好的竞争应  该是使利润趋于零,至少理论上是这样。题干中的to the minimum是对定位句中的zer0的同义  转述,Intheory是对定位旬中的theoretically的  同义转述,故答案为C)。

50.【定位】由题干中的examples和imperial capitalism定位到B)段第一、二句。B)【精析】同义转述题。定位句提到,在过去一年半的时间里,《纽约时报》中的“大鸿沟”系列报道为我们提供了很多削弱一个观点的事例,这个观点是:美国有真正意义上的资本主义的基本法律。19世纪帝国资本主义的动态不再适用于21世纪的民主国家。题干中的Many examples是对定位句中的a wide range of examples的同义转述,basic laws是对定位句中的fundamental laws的    同义转述,故答案为B)。

F)【精析】细节推断题。定位句中将政府的干预模式比喻为钟摆,明确指出政府干预经济的力度从太大转变为太小。题于中的from one extreme to   theother指的就是定位句中的from much too    much government there to much too littlehere,故答案为F)。

K)【精析】同义转述题。定位句提到,没有任何一个国家能够达到提供完全平等的机会的目标。题中的completely equal opportunities对应原文中的complete equality of opportunity,故答案为K)。

      The year of 2011 is a historic moment inthe process of urbanization in China, when  the  urban population exceeds the rural population for the first time. In the next20 years, it is estimated that about 350 million rural populations will migrateto cities. Such a scale of urban development is both a challenge and   an  opportunity   for   urban transportation. The Chinese governmenthas always been advocating the concept of "people-oriented"development, stressing that people should travel by buses instead of privatecars.  It also calls for theconstruction  of  " resource-saving  and environment-friendly society". Withthis explicit goal, Chinese cities can make better plans for their development,and turn  a  massive investment  to  the  development of safe, clean and economical transportation system.
2.第二句的中文中缺少主语,在翻译成英文时,我们可以使用固定搭配it is estimated/predicted that…来表达“预计”。
3.翻译第三句时,“既是挑战,也是机遇”除了译文中的表达,也可以译为not only a challenge but also an opportunity。需要注意的是,如果将not only置于句首,则主句用部分倒装,应该译为Not  only is such a scale of urban development achallenge but also it  is an opportunityfor urban transportation.
4.翻译第四句时,需要注意句子的时态。由“一直提倡”可知,该句  应用现在完成进行时,强调从过去到现在一直持续的动作,且动作有可能继续。翻译“强调……”时,既可以同参考译文一样用动  词的.ing形式作伴随状语,也可以使用定语从句,如which  stresses/emphasizes that people should travel by buses instead of  private cars。
5.翻译第五句时,需要注意“号召”的表达方法,其次要注意如何表达  “‘资源节约和环境友好型’社会”。“号召”可译为call for。“资源节  约和环境友好型’’可译为resource-savingand environment—friendly=6.最后一句比较复杂,“有了这个明确的目标”可以翻译为with复台 结构作整个句子的状语,剩下的中文内容可以翻译为两个并列分。“大量投资”还可以译为a big/huge/major investment.
