此外,由于肽激素无法穿越血脑屏障(blood-brain barrier),研究者们相信,它们从不曾到达过下丘脑以外的大脑的任何部位。
这些肽激素仅仅是在下丘脑内被制造出来,然后被释放入血流中。

But these beliefs about peptide hormones were questioned as laboratory after laboratory found that antiserums to peptide hormones, when injected into the brain, bind in places other than the hypothalamus, indicating that either the hormones or substances that cross-react with the antiserums are present.
然则,有关肽激素的这些信念已遭到人们的质疑,随着一个接一个的实验室发现,针对肽激素的抗血清(antiserum),一旦被注射入大脑,就会在下丘脑以外的其它地方粘结起来,从而表明要么是肽激素本身,要么是和抗血清发生交叉反应的物质在此存在。

Cross-reactions are possible and this method cannot determine whether the substances detected by the antiserums really are the hormones, or merely close relatives.
交叉反应有可能发生,故这一方法无法确定由抗血清测得的物质究竟是真正的肽激素,或仅仅只是其近似的亲缘物(relative)。

Much of this controversy probably results from unwarranted extrapolations of the original configuration of pillow flows from two-dimensional cross sections of eroded pillows in land outcroppings.
这一争论很大程度上或许起源于对枕状溶岩原初构造的不确定推断,而这些推断是从陆地露出地表的岩层(land outcropping)处遭侵蚀的枕状岩的二维截面来进行的。

Virtually any cross section cut through a tangled mass of interconnected flow lobes would give the appearance of a pile of discrete ellipsoidal masses.
从一块由相互连结的诸溶岩流裂片构成的纠结在一起的岩块横切的岩块横切的任何截面,几乎都会给人一种一堆互相分离的椭球形岩块的外观。

These included the flashback, permitting broad psychological and emotional exploration as well as narrative that was not chronological, and the crosscut between two parallel actions to heighten suspense and excitement.
这其中包括闪回镜头(flashback),使广泛的心理和情感探索、以及非正常时序的叙事模式成为可能;还包括在两平行动作之间的交叉剪接(cross-cutting),以强化悬念气氛和兴奋程度。

London commuters got back on board the city's reopened Piccadilly Line subway service for the first time since the bombings. The worst-hit carriage blown up on July 7 was on a Piccadilly train traveling between King's Cross and Russell Square stations. The blast killed 27 people.
有关当局第一次开放了地铁的皮卡迪利线。在7月7号的恐怖袭击中,这条线从国王十字站和罗素广场站运行的那段地铁受损最严重,有27人丧生。

Commuters say they felt a mixture of sadness and determination as they got back on the Piccadilly line. "It's a bit sad actually, coming from King's Cross to Russell Square," said one woman. "I felt a bit sad, you know, because of what happened; but you know, I'm glad, I'm glad they've opened it up again. Life goes on."
一些乘客说,重新搭乘这条线有一种既感伤又坚定的复杂心理。一位女乘客说:“从国王十字到罗素广场实际上是有些令人难过的。因为发生了这样的悲剧。但同时我也很高兴看到这条线重新开放了,一切又照旧如常。”

The non-governmental organizations say plans for a citizens' campaign to provide safe, clean water for more than a billion deprived people began more than three years ago. The President of Green Cross International, Alexander Likhotal, says the campaign will officially kick off next Tuesday on World Water Day.
这些非政府机构说,它们在三年多前就开始计划发动为十多亿人提供安全、清洁用水的公民运动。国际绿色十字会主席亚利山大·利霍塔尔说,这个运动将在下星期二的世界水日正式启动。

"The only practical way of addressing the water crisis is through consolidation of civil society and the creation of a legally binding mechanism for resolving all water-related issues," he said. "This is why Green Cross International together with other international, national and local organizations has launched an international public campaign to urge the national governments to start the negotiations of the global treaty on the right to water."
利霍塔尔说:“解决水危机唯一行之有效的办法是通过联合公民社会以及创建一套法律约束机制等方式来解决所有与水相关的问题。这也就是为什么国际绿色十字会和其他国际性以及各国和地区性的机构共同发起了这次公众性的运动,以敦促各国政府开始协商,制订全球性的用水权利协议。”

The Japan Red Cross Society says it will provide about $1 million to areas hit by the quake and tsunamis. It has an emergency response unit standing by to help establish temporary hospitals and to provide medical aid.
“日本红十字会”表示将向受到地震和海啸冲击的地区提供大约1百万美元。“日本红十字会”配备有一个紧急情况响应小组可以帮助建立临时医院和提供医疗援助。

In Geneva, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies is appealing for more than $6 million for "immediate support" targeted at some 500,000 survivors with immediate needs.
在日内瓦,“国际红十字会和红新月会联合会”呼吁国际社会提供6百多万美元的“即刻援助”,帮助有紧迫需要的大约50万幸存者。

The European Commission says it is in close contact with its staff in the region and with organizations, such as the Red Cross, to assess where aid will be most needed. The 25-nation bloc is making an immediate pledge of more than $3 million in cash aid.
欧洲委员会表示正在和亚洲当地的员工以及“红十字会”等组织密切接触,以评估哪些地区最需要援助。拥有25个成员国的欧盟即刻承诺提供3百多万美元的现金资助。

After crossing the Florida peninsula and coastal portions of the Gulf of Mexico, Tropical Storm Frances struck the Florida panhandle. Frances, an extremely slow-moving storm caused heavy flooding and at least two deaths in Florida. The storm also caused several deaths in the Bahamas. Initial damage estimates indicate that Frances did not cause the sort of damage that Hurricane Charley inflicted last month in parts of southwest Florida.
热带飓风“弗朗西斯”在越过佛罗里达半岛以及墨西哥湾沿海地区后,袭击了佛罗里达州北部的一个狭长地带。移动极其缓慢的“弗朗西斯”使佛罗里达州洪水严重泛滥,并导致至少两人死亡。另外,这个风暴还在巴哈马造成数人死亡。最初估计的损失情况表明,“弗朗西斯”风暴并没有造成“查利”飓风造成的破坏。“查利”飓风上月袭击佛罗里达西南和中部部分地区。
