The most obvious example is late-stage cancer care.
最明显的例子是晚期癌症的治疗。

Here is an example, which I heard at a nurses' convention, of a story which works well because the audience all shared the same view of doctors.
下面举一个例子,它是我在一个护士大会上听到的。这个故事效果很好,因为听众对医生都有同样的看法。

Examples of benefits or costs of the current concentration wave are scanty.
目前证明这股合并浪潮是带来利还是弊的实例并不多。
Yet it is hard to imagine that the merger of a few oil firms today could re-create the same threats to competition that were feared nearly a century ago in the US, when the Standard Oil trust was broken up.
但是很难想像当今的几个石油公司的合并是否会重新造成约100年前美国标准石油公司对竞争造成的同样的威胁,那时由于人们对该公司的这种担心而导致了它最终的解散。
The mergers of telecom companies, such as World Com, hardly seem to bring higher prices for consumers or a reduction in the pace of technical progress.
像世界通讯这样的通讯公司合并似乎没有给消费者带来更高的价格,或者降低技术进步的速度。
On the contrary, the price of communications is coming down fast.
相反,通信的价格在迅速下降。

While warnings are often appropriate and necessary — the dangers of drug interactions, for example — and many are required by state or federal regulations, it isn't clear that they actually protect the manufacturers and sellers from liability if a customer is injured.

Unpredicability is part of the essential nature of research.

If you don't have unpredictable things, you don't have research.

But big dams tend not to work as intended.
但大坝不会像预期的那样产生效果。
The Aswan Dam, for example, stopped the Nile flooding but deprived Egypt of the fertile silt that floods left — all in return for a giant reservoir of disease which is now so full of silt that it barely generates electricity.
以阿斯旺大坝为例,它阻止了尼罗河洪水泛滥,但也使埃及失去了洪水冲击过后留下的肥沃土壤,换回来的是这么一个疾病滋生的水库。现在这个水库积满了淤泥,几乎不能发电了。

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。

Economists have been particularly surprised by favourable inflation figures in Britain and the United States, since conventional measures suggest that both economies, and especially America's, have little productive slack. America's capacity utilisation, for example, hit historically high levels earlier this year, and its jobless rate (5.6% in August) has fallen below most estimates of the natural rate of unemployment — the rate below which inflation has taken off on the past.
经济学家对英美两国有利的通胀率感到特别诧异,因为传统的计量方法表明两国经济,特别是美国经济几乎没有生产萧条的时候。比如,美国的生产力利用率在今年前段时间达到了历史最高水平,失业率(8月份为5.6%)已降到低于对自然失业率的大多数估测——过去,当比率低于自然失业率时,通货膨胀率早已迅速上升。

There are two basic ways to see growth: one as a product, the other as a process.
人们对成长有两种基本看法:一是将其视作结果;一是将其视为过程。
People have generally viewed personal growth as an external result or product that can easily be identified and measured.
人们通常把个人成长看做是易于识别和测量的外在结果。
The worker who gets a promotion, the student whose grades improve, the foreigner who learns a new language — all these are examples of people who have measurable results to show for their efforts.
工人得到升迁,学生成绩提高,外国人学会了一门新的语言——这些都可表明人们付出努力之后,取得了可衡量的成绩。

Without forgetting, adaptive ability would suffer, for example, learned behaviour that might have been correct a decade ago may no longer be.
