"As soon as that report runs, we'll suddenly get 500 new internet sign-ups from Ukraine," says Friedman, a former political science professor.
“一旦这个报道发布,我们将从乌克兰突然新增500个浏览用户,”弗莱德曼,一位前政治科学教授说,“我们将听到其中一些人的回应。
"And we'll hear back from some of them." Open-source spying does have its risks, of course, since it can be difficult to tell good information from bad. That's where Straitford earns its keep.
”当然公开来源的谍报活动的确有它的风险,因为很难区分正确与错误的信息。这正是司特雷福公司挣饭吃的地方。

Of course, the use of the Internet isn't the only way to defeat poverty.
当然,使用互联网不是惟一消灭贫困的方法。
And the Internet is not the only tool we have. But it has enormous potential.
互联网也不是我们所拥有的惟一工具,但它却有巨大的潜力。

Consequences follow from this, of course, some of which are that ambition is driven underground, or made sly.
当然这样就带来了很多不良后果,其中的一些后果就是雄心被赶入地下,或暗藏于胸。
Such, then, is the way things stand: on the left angry critics, on the right stupid supporters, and in the middle, as usual, the majority of earnest people trying to get on in life.
于是情况就成了这样:左边是愤怒的批评家,右边是愚蠢的支持者,而居中的通常是大多数认真而努力追求成功的人。

Of course, the basics of using any computer these days are very simple. It does not take a lifelong acquaintance to pick up various software programs.
当然,目前计算机的基本操作非常简单。不需要花毕生的时间去熟悉各种不同的软件程序的使用。

If one wanted to become a computer engineer, that is, of course, an entirely different story. Basic computer skills take — at the very longest — a couple of months to learn.
当然如果想成为一名计算机工程师,事情就完全不同了。基本的计算机技能最长也只需一两个月即学会。

In any case, basic computer skills are only complementary to the host of real skills that are necessary to becoming any kind of professional.
不管怎样,基本的计算机技能只是对成为专业技术人员所需的各种实际技能的补充。
It should be observed, of course, that no school, vocational or not, is helped by a confusion over its purpose.
当然应该看到的是,不管是职业学校、还是普通学校,混淆计算机教学的目的,都不会受益。

What this amounts to, of course, is that the scientist has become the victim of his own writings.
当然,这几乎等于说:那位科学家成了他自己论文的受害者。
He has put forward unquestioned claims so consistently that he not only believes them himself, but has convinced industrial and business management that they are true.
他所提出的种种论断是如此不容置疑、如此一致,以至于不仅他自己相信了,而且也说服了工商界的管理者相信其正确性。

Almost immediately word flashed on the Internet and was picked up, half a world away, by John Hofsess, executive director of the Right to Die Society of Canada. He sent it on via the group's on-line service, Death NET. Says Hofsess: "We posted bulletins all day long, because of course this isn't just something that happened in Australia. It's world history."
几乎同时,该消息就出现在互联网上。身处地球另一端的加拿大死亡权利执行主席约翰·霍夫塞斯在收到该消息后便通过协会的在线服务“死亡之网”发了公告。他说:“我们整天都在发布公告,因为这件事的意义不在于它是在澳大利亚发生的事情,而是因为这是世界历史的一件大事。”

There are, of course, exceptions.
当然也有例外。

And, of course, speaking a language does not necessarily mean that someone understands social and cultural patterns.
Visitors who fail to "translate" cultural meanings properly often draw wrong conclusions.
当然,会讲一种语言并不意味着就理解该语言的社会和文化模式。不能正确“诠释”文化含义的旅行者往往得出错误的结论。
For example, when an American uses the word "friend", the cultural implications of the word may be quite different from those it has in the visitor's language and culture.
例如,美国人所说的“朋友”一词,其文化含义可能与旅行者语言和文化中的“朋友”大相径庭。
It takes more than a brief encounter on a bus to distinguish between courteous convention and individual interest.
要想正确区分礼貌是出于文化习俗还是个人兴趣,单凭一次公共汽车上的偶遇是不够的。

And of course in Britain listeners and viewers can tune in to two BBC television channels, five BBC national radio services and dozens of local radio station. They are brought sport, comedy, drama, music, news and current affairs, education, religion, parliamentary coverage, children's programmes and films for an annual licence fee of £83 per household.
当然,英国听众和观众可以收到两个BBC电视频道,五个BBC全国广播电台和几十个地方电台,每户每年交83英镑的收视费便可收看体育、喜剧、戏剧、音乐、新闻时事、教育、宗教、议会报道、儿童节目及电影。

There is one more point I feel I ought to touch on.
我觉得有一点还得谈一谈。
Recently I heard a well-known television personality declare that he was against advertising because it persuades rather than informs.
最近我听到一位著名电视人宣称他反对广告,因为广告意在劝诱而非提供信息。
He was drawing excessively fine distinctions. Of course advertising seeks to persuade.
他把两者区分得过于细微,因为广告不可避免地要劝说消费者。

The creative approach begins with the proposition that nothing is as it appears.
创造性方法始于“一切不可貌相”的主张。
Innovators will not accept that there is only one way to do anything.
创新者不会接受办事只有一种方法的论调。
Faced with getting from A to B, the average person will automatically set out on the best-known and apparently simplest route.
面对从A到B的挑战,普通人会自动踏上一条最为人熟悉、显然最简单的路径。
The innovator will search for alternate courses, which may prove easier in the long run and are bound to be more interesting and challenging even if they lead to dead ends.
创新者则会探寻另外不同的道路,而这样的道路将会最终被证实更简单、也一定更有趣、更富挑战性,即使它们通向绝境。
