(refers obj1 obj2) means that obj1
mentions or includes a reference to obj2. Note that refers is
more general in meaning than represents, because presumably something
can represent something else only if it refers to this other thing.
For example, an article whose topic is a recent change in the price of
oil may refer to many other things, e.g. the general state of the economy,
the weather in California, the prospect of global warming, the options
for alternative energy sources, the stock prices of various oil companies,
