最浪漫:60年后续情缘

和喜欢英语的朋友们分享一段在新东方社区双语频道看到的双语文章:

1.最浪漫:60年后续情缘
Peggy Schuster and Henry Freund, from America, were college sweethearts in the early 1950s. But they eventually went their separate ways and married other people.
来自美国的佩吉-休斯特和亨利-弗德在20世纪50年代初上大学时是一对恋人,但最终他们分道扬镳,分别与其他人组建了家庭。
While attending a church meeting in 2001, Freund, who had lost his wife, learned that Schuster had been widowed. He wrote his college sweetheart to offer sympathy. A decade later, Schuster gave him her e-mail address and the couple, both in their 80s, began corresponding. They finally tied the knot on May 13.
2001年,丧妻的弗德在做礼拜时得知休斯特也失去了配偶,于是便给他大学时期的恋人写信,以示慰问。10年之后,休斯特把自己的电子邮箱地址给了他,两位80多岁的老人开始互通信件。5月13日,他们终于喜结连理。

2.最逼真:“自杀雕塑”要跳楼
Sculptures by British artist Antony Gormely have been recently installed atop a building in downtown Sao Paulo, Brazil. Firefighters have been called to the scene by concerned citizens who mistook these life-size sculptures perched at the edges of tall buildings as despondent people ready to jump.
近日,在巴西圣保罗市中心,由英国艺术家安托尼-高密立创作的雕塑作品被置于一栋建筑物的楼顶。忧心忡忡的市民看到这些真人大小的雕塑从高楼的边沿探出,还以为有心灰意懒的人要跳楼,于是报警叫消防员赶来现场。
Brazilian media are calling these sculptures "suicide statues". They’re part of the first South American exhibit for Gormley, who has won many awards, including the Turner Prize.
巴西媒体称这些作品为“自杀雕塑”。它们是高密立首次南美个人展的一部分。高密立曾赢得很多奖项,其中包括特纳奖(欧洲最重要的视觉艺术大奖,编者注)。

3.最富有:清华造就84名亿万富豪
Tsinghua University has brought out 84 billionaire alumni since the reform and opening-up policy was initiated in 1978, according to a recent survey.
据最近的一份调查显示,清华大学从1978年改革开放以来造就了84位亿万富豪。
The successful Tsinghua alumni's assets reached 300 billion yuan, topping China's alumni fortune list, followed by Peking University.
这些成绩斐然的清华校友们创造的总资产达到3000亿元,超过北大,跃居中国校友财富排行榜的首位。
The survey sampled nearly 8,000 people in political, academic and business fields. The results suggest China’s universities overall have contributed 1,500 billionaires since 1978, with total assets of 4.5 trillion yuan. An overwhelming 61 percent of the billionaires are university graduates.
这一次对政界、学术界和商界领域的近8000人做了抽样调查。结果表明,从1978年以来,中国的大学共培养出1500名亿万富翁,财富合计4.5万亿元,其中多达61%的亿万富豪拥有高等教育背景。
