With the development of economy and technology, the trend of
globalization is deepening around the world. It seems that the world is
becoming a scene of prosperity andstability. However, it is not the
case. There are still many poor and refugeesin the world.
In America, white tailed deer are more numerous than ever before, so
abundant in fact that they’ve become a suburban nuisance and a health
From 2000 to2016, each year, there are millions of refugees fleeing
their own countries. For most people, when it comes to the word
“refugee”, wars or poor countries will appear in their minds at first.
However, according to the UN Refugee Agency(UNHCR, a global organization
dedicated to saving lives, protecting rights andbuilding a better future
for refugees, forcibly displaced communities andstateless people),
refugees are people fleeing conflict or persecution. That is, even in
the developed countries, there are still having refugees; even in China,
where the economy is booming, there are still having refugees. But, do
you know where do the refugees prefer to go?
Why can’t the herd be thinned the old-fashioned way? The small
community of North Haven on Long Island is home to some six hundred to
seven hundred deer. The department of Environmental Conservation
estimates the optimum population at 60. The town has been browsed bare
of vegetation except where gardens and shrubs are protected by high
From 2000 to 2016, each year, more than one hundred thousand Chinese
refugees leaving China move to other countries. At the same time, most
of them like to move to Asia and North America. In Asia, they’d like to
choose India, Thailand, Japan and Malaysia to asylum or residence. In
North America, they’d like to choose UnitedStates, Canada and Mexico to
asylum or residence. From where they choose, wecan learn that the
Chinese refugees prefer to go somewhere the economy is better, and close
to their origin place.
Drivers routinely collide with deer and there are so many dead
bodies left by the side of the road that the town has made it a deal
with a local pet cemetery to collect and dispose of the bodies. Some
people in the town have become ill from deer transmitted diseases. On
the occasions when hunting has been tried, local animal rights people
have worked to secure court orders against the hunts. And when that is
failed, they stop the hunters, banging on pots and pans to alert the
deer. Town meetings called to discuss the problem inevitably dissolved
The activists believe simply that the deer are not the problem. Some
communities have even discussed the possibility of bringing wolves back
into the ecological mix. That means wolves in the suburbs of New York.
It is almost too wonderful not to try it. The wolves would kill deer of
course. They would also terrorize and kill dogs and cats which is not
what the suburban dwellers have in mind。
In general, from 2000 to 2016, the refugees around the world “like” to
move to Asia and Africa. Each year, there is an average of 5306460
refugees pouring into Asia, anaverage of 3210530 refugees pouring into
Africa. However, there is only anaverage of 1815420 refugees moving into
the Europe, an average number of1149772 refugees moving into the North
America respectively each year. That is,the number of refugees moving
into North America in 2.9 year and the number of refugees moving into
Europe in 4.6 year is equal to the number of refugees moving into Asia
in one year.
Questions 16 to 18 are based on the passage you have just heard
In Asia, they’d like to choose Pakistan, Islamic Rep. of Iran, Turkey,
Syrian Arab Rep. and soon; in Africa, they’d like to choose Kenya,
United Rep. of Tanzania, Uganda,Chad etc. But does these areas are the
dream places for the refugees to go?
Q16. What do we learn about white-tailed deer in North Haven?
Q17. Why do local animal rights people bang on pots and pans?
As we all know,most of the developed countries are located in the Europe
or North America, themajority countries in Asia or Africa are developing
or less developed countries.That is, these countries maybe also need
help from others so as to develop themselves smoothly. However, refugees
are people fleeing conflict orpersecution, they need to seek asylum and
find safe refuge in another country. Canthey find shelter in some
developing or countries?
Q18. What would happen if wolves were brought back into the
Or do thesecountries have the duty to receive the refugees? In fact, the
question thatwhich countries should be responsible for the refugee
problem has beendiscussed by the media for many years.
Some people argue that, “who pollutes, who governs”, who bombed Syria,
who should received refugees. Western “democracies” such as the United
States are the makers of refugees, they should open their doors to
receive refugees, and thereis no reason for other countries to pay for
their SINS. While other believe that the countries which have the power
should be responsible for the refugees.Just like China, with the One
Belt And One Road strategy and the wish of building a community of
Shared future for mankind, China should be responsiblefor the refugees,
so as to show great power and take internationalresponsibility.
