  Soccer Legend Ronaldo Teams Up with FormerBrazilian Billionaire to Launch Soccer Academy

  Former Brazilian billionaire Carlos Wizard Martins is teaming upwith retired soccer legend Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima tolaunch a franchise of soccer schools, the Ronaldo Academy. Theschool’s methodology will be based on Ronaldo’s skills andachievements throughout his career on the soccer fields. Theretired athlete, who has been called “the phenomenon” and isknown all over the world simply by his first name, is one of only four soccer players to have wonthe FIFA World Player of the Year award at least three times, along with France’s Zinedine Zidane,Argentina’s Lionel Messi and Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

  前巴西亿万富豪卡洛斯·维泽德·马丁斯(Carlos Wizard Martins)正在与足坛退役巨星罗纳尔多·路易斯·纳扎里奥·达·利马(Ronaldo Luiz Nazario de Lima)合办特许经营的足球学校,名为罗纳尔多学校。该校的培训方法基于罗纳尔多在其足球生涯中的技巧和成就。这位退役的足球运动员有着“外星人”的绰号,在世界各地都享有盛誉。迄今为止,至少三次荣获“国际足联世界年度最佳球员”(FIFA World Player of the Year)称号的足球运动员仅有四人,罗纳尔多就是其中之一,另外三人分别是法国的齐内丁·齐达内(Zinedine Zidane)、阿根廷的里奥内尔·梅西(Lionel Messi)和葡萄牙的克里斯蒂亚诺·罗纳尔多(Cristiano Ronaldo)。

  Martins and Ronaldo, who both attended a press conference this Wednesday to announce theirpartnership, said they plan to have eight schools in operation by the year’s end. Five schoolsalready have their locations confirmed: they will be set up in the Brazilian cities of Sao Paulo andCampinas; as well as Salt Lake City, Boca Raton and Fort Laudardale. Their aim is to have 100schools in operation by 2020.

  在上周三的新闻发布会上,马丁斯和罗纳尔多双双现身,公布了两人的合作关系,并表示他们计划到年底时开办8所足球学校。其中5所学校的校址已经确定,分别是巴西的圣保罗和坎皮纳斯以及美国的盐湖城、博卡拉顿和劳德代尔堡。他们的目标是到2020年开办100所足球学校。

  

  During the press conference Martins explained that the company will have three strategies forexpansion: through small franchises designed for small towns; through its flagship franchise in FortLauderdale (a new flagship franchise will soon open in Campinas); and through franchises designedspecifically for mid-size to large cities .

  在新闻发布会上,马丁斯解释说,该公司将有三个扩张战略:面向小城镇的小型特许经营学校;位于劳德代尔堡的特许经营旗舰学校(在坎皮纳斯新设立的特许经营旗舰学校将在不久后投入运行);专门面向大中城市的特许经营学校。

  Last year Ronaldo acquired a minority stake in the Fort Lauderdale Strikes soccer team. The size ofhis stake and how much money he invested in it have not been disclosed. Ronaldo also owns a45% stake in the 9ine Sports and Entertainment agency, a company that has deals outsidemainstream soccer and helps companies and athletes on attracting sponsors and managing theirbrands. Clients include Duracell (P&G’s battery brand) and GlaxoSmithKline. The UK-based WPPGroup, a world leader in advertising and marketing services, owns another 45% in 9ine andBrazilian entrepreneur Marcus Buaiz has the remaining 10%.

  去年,罗纳尔多收购了美国足球队劳德代尔堡打击者队(Fort Lauderdale Strikes)的少数股份,股份数量和收购金额没有披露。罗纳尔多还拥有9ine体育娱乐经纪公司(9ine Sports andEntertainment)45%的股份。这家公司在足球主流领域之外开展交易,帮助企业和运动员吸引赞助商和管理品牌,客户包括宝洁(P&G)旗下的电池品牌金霸王和制药公司葛兰素史克(GlaxoSmithKline)。全球广告和营销服务领导者英国WPP集团拥有9ine公司45%的股份,剩下10%的股份属于巴西企业家马库斯·布埃兹(Marcus Buaiz)。

  According to an estimate by FORBES editor Kurt Badenhausen, Ronaldo earned between $200-$250 million from salary and endorsements during his career. As for Martins, he joined the FORBESWorld’s Billionaires list in 2014 but dropped out this year.

  根据福布斯编辑科尔特·巴登豪森(Kurt Badenhausen)的估计,罗纳尔多在其职业生涯中挣得2亿至2.5亿美元薪酬和代言费。至于马丁斯,他在2014年首次入选福布斯全球亿万富豪榜,但今年落选。

  The oldest son of a truck driver and an Italian immigrant, Martins, a Mormon, started an Englishschool in a small town some 200 miles from Sao Paulo after graduating at Brigham YoungUniversity in Utah in 1981, the seed of what later on became Grupo Multi, which by 2010 was theleading company in Brazil’s booming language teaching industry. That same year he sold a 15%stake in Grupo Multi, which operates through franchises, for $125 million to an investment arm ofBrazilian bank Banco Itau. In 2012, he sold the remaining 85% to U.K. media and educationcompany Pearson for $720 million in cash. His absence on this year’s Billionaires list was mostly dueto the devaluation of the Brazilian real against the U.S. dollar.

  马丁斯是家中长子,父母是卡车司机和意大利移民。他信奉摩门教,1981年从犹他州的杨百翰大学毕业后,在距离圣保罗大约200英里远的一个小镇上创办了一所英语培训学校,后来发展成为Grupo Multi公司。到2010年,该公司在巴西蓬勃发展的语言培训行业中已经处于领先地位。同年,他以1.25亿美元的价格,把15%的Grupo Multi公司(采取特许经营模式)股份出售给了巴西伊塔乌银行(Banco Itau)旗下的一个投资部门。2012年,他把剩余85%的股份出售给了英国传媒和教育公司培生(Pearson),获得7.2亿美元现金。他之所以缺席今年的亿万富豪榜,主要是因为巴西货币雷亚尔兑美元贬值。

外星人罗纳尔多与富豪合办足球学校的延伸阅读——雅思阅读高分做题策略

  阅读策略之由易到难,我认为应该贯穿两条主线:题型和单个问题。虽然题型没有绝对的难易之分,但是同一篇文章中的几个题型中总有相对简单的。简单的题型应该是指那些有顺序原则、题组中有特殊印刷体及题干较短的题型。

  我们为什么要采取由易到难的策略呢?分析认为原因主要有2个:

  一、由易到难的策略和顺序原则是紧密相关的。如果不采用由易到难的策略,那就么在雅思阅读中顺序原则的意义就会大打折扣。反之,因为采用了由易到难的策略,所以才突出了顺序原则的重要性。

  二、该原则有助于考生节省时间、增加自信心,保证后面的顺利答题。如果考生一开始就解决难题,就可能造成时间耽误过多、紧张程度增加、自信心减少甚至心烦意乱的糟糕状态。这对后面的考试是极为不利的。

  那么由易到难的策略该怎么操作呢?分析认为,要做到灵活有效地采用该策略,首先考生要明白分析问题的重要性,不可拿到考题就从第一题开始。其次,考生要有敏锐的观察力,能在第一时间观察到各组题的特点。最后,考生必须对主流题型的特点了如指掌。

  题型没有绝对的容易和难,任何一种通常认为简单的题型可能会很难,同样难的题型可能会以非常简单的形式出现。就是说考生不可以武断地认为是非无判断题最简单或填空题最简单。那么考生该怎样判断一篇文章的题型哪些简单哪些难呢?以下几个因素是考生应该重点考虑的:顺序原则、特殊印刷体及题干的长度。遵循顺序原则、有特殊印刷体及题干较短的题肯定比较好定位。

  相对来说,在5大主流题型中,选择题和其它匹配题较费时。选择题定位往往没问题,但要花很多时间分析所定位的句子和选项;而其它匹配题则可能要花很多时间来定位。所以,笔者认为考生如果碰到这类题,应该把他们放到后面再解决。在所有的主流题型中,考生应该优先考虑表格填空和告知定位的SUMMARY,因为有句谚语说得好:“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.”其次应该优先考虑的是标题匹配题,因为标题匹配完成后,全文的大部分内容已经很熟悉了,为后面答题省去了许多时间。

  总之,考生如果在平时的练习及正式雅思考试时能够灵活运用这一原则的话,相信一定能够保持一个良好的考试状态并节省下许多时间。
