Although qualitative variance among nerve energies was never rigidly disproved, the doctrine was generally abandoned in favor of the opposing view, namely, that nerve impulses are essentially homogeneous in quality and are transmitted as "common currency" throughout the nervous system.
虽然神经能量之间存在性质差异的观点从没有遭到严格的驳斥,但该学说普遍被抛弃,人们转而采纳了与之相对立的一个观点,即神经冲击从根本上来说在性质上是毫无二致的,并仿佛象“通用货币”(common currency)一样在神经系统中传输。

Webb argues that the colonial legislative assemblies represented the interests not of the common people but of the colonial upper classes, a coalition of merchants and nobility who favored self-rule and sought to elevate legislative authority at the expense of the executive.
韦伯指出,殖民地立法议会所代表的,不是普通民众的利益,而是殖民地上层阶级的利益。
这一上层阶级由商人和贵族联合而成,赞成殖民地自治,并力图以行政权为代价来提高立法权。

It was, according to Webb, the colonial governors who favored the small farmer, opposed the plantation system, and tried through taxation to break up large holdings of land.
据韦伯称,正是殖民地总督亲善小农,反对种植园制,并通过税赋来打破土地的大规模拥有。

Last week, former president Corazon Aquino, the woman who sparked a revolt that toppled a dictatorship, joined politicians and businessmen calling for the resignation of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. The calls followed allegations that Mrs. Arroyo had rigged the 2004 presidential elections in her favor.
曾经领导推翻独裁统治的菲律宾前总统阿基诺上星期和政商界人士一起,要求阿罗约总统辞职。在这之前,有指控说,阿罗约在2004年总统大选中操纵舞弊。

State election officials reported a huge voter turnout on Tuesday. In the days leading up to Election Day, large numbers of voters also turned out to cast their ballots in early voting. In an interview with a Miami television station on Tuesday, before the final results were announced, Florida Governor Jeb Bush said the conventional wisdom that a large voter turnout would favor Democratic Senator John Kerry appeared not to have been the case.
佛罗里达州选举官员报告说,星期二大批选民出来投票。在投票日到来之前,已经有很多选民提前投了票。佛罗里达州州长杰伯·布什在星期二公布选举结果之前接受迈阿密一家电视台采访时说,一般认为大批选民出来投票将有利于民主党参议员克里的说法这次看来不灵验了。

A new public opinion poll shows more Iraqis favor Democratic challenger John Kerry than President Bush, who launched the invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein. But more than half of the 2,000 peopled polled throughout Iraq don't care who wins the U.S. presidency in next week's election.
一项新的民意调查表明:大多数伊拉克人支持美国民主党总统候选人克里参议员,而不喜欢发动对伊战争,推翻萨达姆的布什总统。不过,在伊拉克接受调查的两千人当中,一半以上的人并不关心在下个星期进行的美国总统大选中到底谁获胜。

Senator Kerry hopes to keep it that way to offset the majority of male voters who public opinion polls show favor President Bush."George Bush likes to talk about how being president is hard work," said Mr. Kerry. "Well, before he complains about his job, he ought to spend a day with the women who are struggling hard to get by."
克里参议员希望这种情况不会改变,以便抗衡民意测验显示男性选民大多数支持布什的局面。克里说:“乔治·布什喜欢谈论当总统需要多么努力地工作。在他抱怨他的工作辛苦之前,他应该和那些努力工作而日子仍然不好过的女士们呆上一天。”

Senator Kerry says President Bush is unable to improve the U.S. economy because he insists on keeping tax cuts that the Democratic challenger says unfairly favor wealthier Americans at the expense of the Middle Class."How can he serve America properly if he can't address America's problems," he said. "It all boils down to this. Twenty four days from now the American dream is on the ballot. And we have to decide, we have to decide Ohio, Loraine County, we have to decide all across this country whether we are going to move this nation of ours forward in a new direction or whether we are going to be stuck with the same bad choice and the same serious mistakes from the last years."
克里参议员说,布什总统无法使美国的经济改善因为他坚持实行减税。这位民主党总统 候选人说,减税政策损害中产阶级的利益,不公平地偏向富人。克里说:“如果不能解决美国存在的问题,他怎么能够很好地为美国服务?一切都归结为这个问题。现在距离大选仅剩二十四天了,美国的梦想取决于投票结果。我们必须做出决定,俄亥俄州洛雷恩郡要做出决定,全国的人民都要做出决定,我们是想让我们的国家朝着一个新的方向向前发展,还是依然坚持同样的错误选择,固守着过去几年来同样的严重错误。”

That is a wider lead for the president from just one month ago, when the same poll found 48 percent favoring Mr. Bush and 45 percent favoring Senator Kerry.
与一个月前比较,布什总统在反恐作战方面的民意支持率有较大幅度增长,当时布什总统在这个议题上获得百分之四十八的支持度,克里则获得百分之四十五的支持度。

He also cites Russia, which has tightened restrictions on the technology and equipment it supplies for Iran's nuclear energy program but would be reluctant to give up the lucrative contracts. European allies still favor a dialogue and negotiations to dissuade Tehran from its nuclear pursuits even though they appear to be losing patience with Iran's defiant behavior. Washington is pushing for a much tougher approach. The next showdown for Iran is the IAEA meeting in September to review its cooperation on inspections of its facilities. But analysts say Iran probably figures it can buy time before tougher action is taken by assuming there will be no dramatic shift in the international community's strategy before the U.S. presidential elections in November.
他还提到了俄罗斯。俄罗斯开始进一步限制对伊朗核计划提供技术和设备,但它不愿放弃利益丰厚的合同。欧洲国家虽然对伊朗一意孤行的做法感到不满,但还是主张通过对话磋商来说服德黑兰放弃发展核武器。而华盛顿力图采取更加严厉的措施来解决这个问题。伊朗将在9月份面临再次摊牌, 届时,国际原子能机构会对伊朗与其在核设备检查方面的合作情况做出评估。但是分析人士说,伊朗会估计,在11月份美国大选前,国际社会对它发展核武器问题的处理策略不会有太大改变,因此在联合国采取更严厉的行动之前,它还能争取到一些时间。
