ESL 48: Have You Seen This Man?



Download


The local TV news showed a video of a man dressed in coveralls, a baseball cap, a long-sleeved shirt, and gloves. He was pointing a gun at the clerk. He reached over the countertop and grabbed money out of the cash register. Then he strolled out of the store. (Since they outnumber Los Angeles police by about 1,000 to 1, criminals don't bother to run anymore.)

The video camera was mounted near the ceiling of the store, so its lens was looking down at the scene. You, as the viewer, could see the clerk clearly, but not the criminal. He was so bundled up that you couldn't see even the tip of his nose. Because there was no audio, you couldn't even be sure if the criminal was a man or a woman!

Yet, the TV news announcer earnestly asked all the viewers, "If you have seen this robber or if you know who he is, please call the LAPD." To be fair to the TV station, they showed the same useless video at least six times in two days. The LAPD got zero phone calls. At other times, the TV news reader will give viewers a much better description: "The suspect is about 5'8", 170 pounds." This description also results in no arrests.

Có bao giờ bạn trông thấy người đàn ông này chưa?

Bản tin truyền hình địa phương chiếu một đoạn video của một người đàn ông trong bộ đồ lao động, một mũ bóng chày, một áo sơ mi dài tay, và găng tay. Hắn ta chĩa súng vào viên thư kí. Hắn tiến tới phần đầu quầy thu tiền và lấy tiền ra khỏi máy đếm tiền. Rồi hắn ta từ tốn đi ra khỏi cửa hiệu. (Từ khi chúng tính rằng tội phạm đông gấp 1000 lần cảnh sát Los Angeles, tụi tội phạm không bận tâm chạy trốn chút nào.)

Máy quay phim được đặt gần trần nhà của cửa tiệm, vậy nên ống kính chĩa xuống cảnh đó. Bạn, là người xem, có thể nhìn thấy viên thư kí rõ ràng, nhưng kẻ tội phạm thì không. Hắn ta mặc đồ quá kín kẽ vậy nên bạn thậm chí không thể thấy cái chóp mũi của hắn ta. Bởi vì không có tiếng, bạn không thể chắc rằng đó là đàn ông hay đàn bà nữa.

Người đọc tin truyền hình tha thiết yêu cầu người xem, "Nếu bạn đã nhìn thấy tên cướp hoặc bạn biết hắn ta là ai, hãy gọi LAPD." Để cho công bằng với đài TV, họ chiếu thêm video vô dụng tương tự ít nhất sáu lần trong hai ngày qua. LAPD không nhận được cuộc gọi nào. Tại vài thời điểm khác, người đọc tin truyền hình đưa ra cho người xem một bản mô tả chi tiết hơn:"Kẻ tình nghi khoảng 5'8", 170 pounds." Bản mô tả này cũng chẳng có kết quả gì.

Chương trình thời sự của đài truyền hình địa phương chiếu một đoạn vi-đê-ô cho thấy một người đàn ông mặc bộ đồ áo liền quần, đội mũ lưỡi trai bóng chày, mặc áo sơ-mi dài tay và đeo găng tay. Hắn đang chĩa súng vào nhân viên bán hàng. Hắn vươn tay ra phía trên quầy bán hàng, lấy tiền ra khỏi máy đếm tiền. Rồi hắn thong thả đi ra khỏi cửa hàng. (Kể từ khi đông hơn cảnh sát Los Angeles gấp 1.000 lần, bọn tội phạm không còn quan tâm đến việc chạy trốn nữa.)

Máy quay vi-đê-ô được gắn gần trần nhà cửa hàng, cho nên ống kính đã quay xuống cảnh đó. Khi bạn là người quan sát, bạn có thể thấy nhân viên bán hàng rất rõ ràng, nhưng không thể thấy được tên tội phạm. Hắn đã bao bọc kín mít đến nỗi bạn không thể thấy được chóp mũi của hắn ta. Bởi vì không có phần thâu âm, bạn không thể biết chắc được tên tội phạm là đàn ông hay phụ nữ.

Vào lúc này, phát thanh viên chương trình thời sự yêu cầu khán giả một cách nghiêm túc, "Nếu bạn đã từng thấy tên cướp hoặc bạn biết hắn là ai, xin hãy gọi cho LAPD". Để công bằng với đài truyền hình địa phương, người ta đã cho chiếu lại đoạn băng vi-đê-ô vô dụng đó sáu lần trong hai ngày. LAPD không nhận được cuộc điện thoại nào. Vào một giờ khác, biên tập viên chương trình thời sự cho khán giả biết thêm một số chi tiết hữu ích hơn: "Kẻ tình nghi cao khoảng 5'8", nặng 170 pounds. Miêu tả trên cũng không mang lại kết quả gì cho việc bắt giữ cả.

He was so bundled up that you couldn't see even the tip of his nose. Because there was no audio, you couldn't even be sure if the criminal was a man or a woman!

Yet, the TV news announcer earnestly asked all the viewers, " If you have seen this robber or if you know who he is, please call the LAPD." To be fair to the TV station, they showed the same useless video at least six times in two days. The LAPD got zero phone calls. At other times, the TV news reader will give viewers a much better description: "The suspect is about 5'8", 170 pounds ." This description also results in no arrests.

==================

*Fill in the blanks:

The local TV news showed a video of _a_ man dressed in coveralls, a baseball cap, a _long_ -sleeved shirt, and gloves. He was pointing a gun _at_ the clerk. He reached over the countertop and _grabbed_ money out of the cash register. Then he _strolled_ out of the store. (Since they outnumber Los _Angeles_ police by about 1,000 to 1, criminals don't _bother_ to run anymore.)

The video camera was mounted _near_ the ceiling of the store, so its lens _was_ looking down at the scene. You, as the _viewer_ , could see the clerk clearly, but not the _criminal_ . He was so bundled up that you couldn't _see_ even the tip of his nose. Because there _was_ no audio, you couldn't even be sure if _the_ criminal was a man or a woman!

Yet, _the_ TV news announcer earnestly asked all the viewers, "_If_ you have seen this robber or if you _know_ who he is, please call the LAPD." To _be_ fair to the TV station, they showed the _same_ useless video at least six times in two _days_ . The LAPD got zero phone calls. At other _times_ , the TV news reader will give viewers a _much__ better description: "The suspect is about 5'8", 170 pounds ." This description also results in no arrests.
==================
Chương trình thời sự của đài truyền hình địa phương chiếu một đoạn vi-đê-ô cho thấy một người đàn ông mặc bộ đồ áo liền quần, đội mũ lưỡi trai bóng chày, mặc áo sơ-mi dài tay và đeo găng tay. Hắn đang chĩa súng vào nhân viên bán hàng. Hắn vươn tay ra phía trên quầy bán hàng, lấy tiền ra khỏi máy đếm tiền. Rồi hắn thong thả đi ra khỏi cửa hàng. (Kể từ khi đông hơn cảnh sát Los Angeles gấp 1.000 lần, bọn tội phạm không còn quan tâm đến việc chạy trốn nữa.)

Máy quay vi-đê-ô được gắn gần trần nhà cửa hàng, cho nên ống kính đã quay xuống cảnh đó. Khi bạn là người quan sát, bạn có thể thấy nhân viên bán hàng rất rõ ràng, nhưng không thể thấy được tên tội phạm. Hắn đã bao bọc kín mít đến nỗi bạn không thể thấy được chóp mũi của hắn ta. Bởi vì không có phần thâu âm, bạn không thể biết chắc được tên tội phạm là đàn ông hay phụ nữ.

Vào lúc này, phát thanh viên chương trình thời sự yêu cầu khán giả một cách nghiêm túc, "Nếu bạn đã từng thấy tên cướp hoặc bạn biết hắn là ai, xin hãy gọi cho LAPD". Để công bằng với đài truyền hình địa phương, người ta đã cho chiếu lại đoạn băng vi-đê-ô vô dụng đó sáu lần trong hai ngày. LAPD không nhận được cuộc điện thoại nào. Vào một giờ khác, biên tập viên chương trình thời sự cho khán giả biết thêm một số chi tiết hữu ích hơn: "Kẻ tình nghi cao khoảng 5'8", nặng 170 pounds. Miêu tả trên cũng không mang lại kết quả gì cho việc bắt giữ cả.
