暑假六级阅读训练7

2014-07-22    来源:网络    【      托福雅思口语高分过

In department stores and closets all over the world. they are waiting. Their outward appearance seems rather appealing because they come in a variety of styles, textures. and colors. But they are ultimately the biggest deception that exists in the fashion industry today. What are they? They are high heels—a woman's worst enemy (whether she knows it or not). High heel shoes are the downfall of modem society. Fashion myths have led women to believe that they are more beautiful or sophisticated for wearing heels, but in reality, heels succeed in posing short as well as long term hardships. Women should fight the high heel industry by refusing to use or purchase them in order to save the world from unnecessary physical and psychological suffering.

For the sake of fairness. it must be noted that there is a positive side to high heels. First. heels are excellent for aerating (使通气) lawns. Anyone who has ever worn heels on grass knows what I am talking about. A simple trip around the yard in a pair of those babies eliminates all need to call for a lawn care specialist. and provides the perfect-sized holes to give any lawn oxygen without all those messy chunks of dirt lying around. Second, heels are quite functional for defense against oncoming enemies. who can easily be scared away By threatening them with a pair of these sharp, deadly fashion accessories.

Regardless of such practical uses for heels, the fact remains that wearing high heels is harmful to one's physical health. Talk to any podiatrist (足病医生), and you will hear that the majority of their business comes from high-heel-wearing women. High heels are known to cause problems such as deformed feetand tom toenails. The ask of severe back problems and twisted or broken ankles is three times higher for a high heel wearer than for a flat shoe wearer. Wearing heels also creates che threat of getting a heel caught in a sidewalk crack or a sewer-grate (阴沟栅) and being thrown to the ground-possibly breaking a nose. back, or neck. And of course, after wearing heels for a day. any woman knows she can look forward to a night of pain as she tries to comfort her swollen, aching feel.

【参考译文】
在全世界百货商店和壁橱里,它们正在等待着。它们的外表拟乎非常吸引人.因为它们的式样,质地和颜色多种多样。但是它们却是当今时装产业中最大的骗局。它们是什么?它们就是高跟鞋——女性最大的敌人(不管她们是否知道这一点)。高跟鞋是现代社会的衰落。[1]/[3]时尚神话使女性相信穿上高跟鞋会更美丽或气质更高雅,但事实上高跟鞋已经引起了短期乃至长期的痛苦。女性应该与高跟鞋产业作斗争,拒绝穿或购买高跟鞋,以使世界免受不必要的身心折磨。

为公平起见,我们必须注意到穿高跟鞋还具有其积极的一面。首先,高跟鞋有利于草坪通气。穿着高跟鞋在草地上走过的任何一个人都知道我说的是什么。[2]穿着这双宝贝只要在院子里走上一圈就没必要再请草坪养护专家了,高跟鞋走过去会在地上留下大小合适的一个个小洞,给草坪提供了氧气,而且周围没有那些乱七八糟的垃圾。其次,高跟鞋对抵御来犯之敌十分有效,用这么两只尖尖的、可致人于死地的时装配件一扬,就能轻而易举地把他们吓得逃之夭夭。

[4]尽管高跟鞋有这些实际用途,事实上穿高跟鞋对身体健康有害。与任何一位足病医生交谈,你都会听到他们说大多数业务来自穿高跟鞋的女性。人们知道穿高跟鞋会引起足部变形和脚趾甲破裂之类的问题。穿高跟鞋者有严重背部问题和踝关节扭饬或骨折的风险,要比穿平跟鞋者大三倍。穿高跟鞋还会把鞋跟踩进人行道的裂缝或阴沟栅,使人摔倒在地上——可能会跌破鼻子、背部或折断颈部的危险。当然,穿了一天的高跟鞋,任何女性都料到会有一个痛苦的夜晚去舒缓她那又肿又疼的双脚。
