    pugnacious(形容詞)好鬥的;好戰的

    As China’s attitude toward Hong Kong hardened over the past year, Jimmy Lai, the pugnacious founder of Apple Daily, anticipated that his paper’s days were numbered. In a guest essay for The Times last May, he wrote that he had long feared that the Communist Party “would grow tired not only of Hong Kong’s free press but also of its free people.”  With the paper’s closure looming, reporters of Apple Daily’s team of about 700 editorial and production staff have gathered and pondered whether to leave early to limit the risk of arrest, or stay on until the bitter ends. For them and other people in Hong Kong, the forced closure of Apply Daily signifies an end of an era.

    隨著中國對香港的態度在過去一年裡變得強勢,蘋果日報以好鬥聞名的創辦人---黎智英即預言----他的報社日子不多了。去年五月,他在時代雜誌發表的一篇文章中寫道,他長期以來一直擔心中共「不但日益厭倦香港的新聞自由,也慢慢厭倦他自由的人民」。隨著報社關閉的時間越來越逼近,報社七百名的編輯及製作團隊時而聚集,思考是否應早日離開以降低被捕的風險,或是留下來與蘋果共進退。對他們即其他香港朋友而言,蘋果日報的被迫停刊意味著一個時代的結束。

    Lampoon(動詞)譏諷;嘲諷

    Apple Daily, known for its reports on celebrity gossip and lurid scandals, rambunctious support of pro-democracy protesters and lampooning of China’s Communist Party leadership with a decidedly antigovernment slant, announced on Wednesday that it was closing. In 2019 when antigovernment protests erupted in Hong Kong, posing unprecedented challenge to Beijing in decades, Apply Daily stood out and showed unabashed support for the democratic movement. However, when Beijing moved to quash resistance to its rule in this city, Apple Daily quickly became a key target. 

    以報導名人八卦、聳人聽聞的醜聞,同時也以明顯反政府傾向譏諷中國共產黨而聲名大噪的蘋果日報,本周三宣布即將停刊。香港2019年爆發反政府抗議活動,讓北京面臨了數十年來前所未有的政治挑戰,蘋果日報此時亦是挺身而出,毫不掩飾地支持這場運動。然而,此舉在中國政府積極採舉鎮壓對付反抗者後,蘋果日報很快地就成了一個中國政府主要的打擊目標。
