Mark Zuckerberg

新概念三Lesson 31 里介绍了一位行事风格十分有个性的有钱人。本期文化大爆炸为大家介绍新鲜出炉的2012福布斯名人富豪排行榜,最有钱的名人是谁?或许他们的财富远远不及世界首富墨西哥电信大亨卡洛斯·斯利姆,但是他们的知名度绝对比明星更明星!

Mark Zuckerberg – $17.5 Billion 马克·扎克伯格

Mark, 27, is the youngest,richest billionaire in the world. He’s the face behind Facebook, and the undisputed champ of social networking. Speaking of which, he was portrayed by Jesse Eisenberg in the “The Social Network,” a fictionalized film of Facebook’s creation.
President Obama praised Facebook as an example of American innovation in his January State of the Union Address.
今年27岁的马克是世界上最年轻最富有的亿万富翁。他是Facebook背后的创造者,也是社交网络界无可争议的冠军。说到这个,在改编自Facebook创业史的电影《社交网络》中,杰西·艾森柏格所扮演的角色就是以马克·扎克伯格为原型的。
奥巴马总统在他一月发表的国情咨文中赞赏Facebook是美国创新产业中的榜样。

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey – $2.7 Billion 奥普拉·温弗瑞

Oprah is arguably the most powerful person in entertainment. She turns authors into instant celebs, down home chefs into chain restauranteurs and doctors into blockbuster gurus. She’s turned us into believers, and you know we’ve all tune in to her new Oprah Winfrey Network “OWN”.
无需争辩,奥普拉·温弗瑞是娱乐界最具影响力的人。她能够让作者一夜成名,让乡村厨师成为连锁餐厅老板,让医生们变成轰动一时的专家。她已经把我们变成了她的信徒,我们都会收看她经营的新频道“OWN”。

Mikhail Prokhorov

Mikhail Prokhorov – $13.2 Billion米哈伊尔·普罗霍洛夫

If this gallivanting Russian bachelor industrialist isn’t quite a celebrity yet, he will be shortly. The 45-year-old bought a controlling stake in the NBA’s New Jersey (soon to be Brooklyn) Nets. He’s notoriously single — see his arrest on “pimping” charges in 2007. Basically, he’s now the King of New York.
如果这位绯闻多多的45岁俄罗斯单身实业家还算不上是名人的话,他也接近了!他买下了NBA新泽西网队(很快会变成布鲁克林网队)的控股权。他是个臭名昭著的单身汉——2007年他因“拉皮条”事件受到指控。他现在基本上可以被称作纽约之王。

Donald Trump

Donald Trump – $2.9 Billion唐纳德·特朗普(美国地产大亨)

The Donald might be one of the most famous faces on this list. He’s certainly got the most famous head of hair. According to Forbes, Trump thinks his “brand alone is worth $5 billion.” It’s that kind of confidence that has helped him accumulate the richest real estate holdings in the world. President Trump? The Donald says he is considering running for US President in 2012.
唐纳德·特朗普可能是榜单上最著名的富翁之一。他的发型一定可以被评为最著名的发型。根据福布斯杂志的说法,特朗普认为他“仅品牌价值就有5亿”,正是这种自信帮助他累积了全球最富有的房地产财产。特朗普总统?唐纳德称自己有意在2012年竞选美国总统。

J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling – $1 Billion J·K·罗琳

With the purchasing power of kids. And moms. And teens. OK, everybody loves ‘Harry Potter.’ The richest chick in Britain deserves every Galleon she’s put in the bank. Don’t expect to see Rowling on welfare again anytime.
好吧,人人都爱哈利波特!靠着儿童,妈妈们和青少年的购买力,每一枚存入银行的“金加隆”(魔法世界中的货币)都是JK罗林应得的。她现在是英国最富有的少妇。你不会再看到JK罗林接受救济了。

Steven Spielberg

Steven Spielberg – $3 Billion斯蒂芬·斯皮尔伯格

King of the big screen. Count his ticket stubs. Films directed by Spielberg haul in an average of $157 million at the box office.
大荧幕的王者。计算一下斯皮尔伯格的电影票存根吧!统计所有由斯皮尔伯格指导的电影,平均每部电影的票房达到了1.57亿美元。

Michael Bloomberg

Michael Bloomberg – $22 Billion 迈克尔·彭博

We thought we read somewhere — maybe it was the Magna Carta… or the Constitution… or Microsoft Encarta — that democratic leaders aren’t supposed to be billionaires. Nobody told Mayor Bloomberg, who spent $90 million on his last campaign.
我们一定在哪儿读过这句话,是大宪章?宪法?还是英卡塔(微软的电子百科全书)?一位民主的领导不应该是个亿万富翁啊!或许没人把这句话告诉过市长彭博(纽约市),迈克尔·彭博在他最近的选举中花费了9000万美元。
