Just three weeks before the Court's ruling on physician-assisted suicide, the National Academy of Science (NAS) released a two-volume report, Approaching Death: Improving Care at the End of Life.
就在最高法庭对医助自杀进行裁决的前三周,全国科学学会公布了一份长达两卷的报告——临近死亡:完善临终护理。
It identifies the undertreatment of pain and the aggressive use of "ineffectual and forced medical procedures that may prolong and even dishonor the period of dying" as the twin problems of end-of-life care.
报告指出了医院临终关怀护理中存在的两个问题:对病痛处理不力和大胆使用“无效而强制性的医疗程序,这些程序可能会延长死亡期,甚至会让死亡期难堪”。

A great deal of attention is being paid today to the so-called digital divide — the division of the world into the info(information) rich and the info poor.
今天,人们十分关注所谓的是信息差异问题——世界上信息资源丰富的地区和信息资源贫乏的地区之间的差异;
And that divide does exist today.
这个差异确实存在,
My wife and I lectured about this looming danger twenty years ago.
我和我妻子20年前就曾谈及这个临近的危险。
What was less visible then, however, were the new, positive forces that work against the digital divide.
然而,那时还不太明显的是一些抵制信息差异的、新的积极因素。
There are reasons to be optimistic.
实际上我们是完全有理由感到乐观的。

The world is going through the biggest wave of mergers and acquisitions ever witnessed.
世界正在经历一场前所未有的巨大的并购浪潮。
The process sweeps from hyperactive America to Europe and reaches the emerging countries with unsurpassed might.
这个浪潮从异常活跃的美国席卷到欧洲,并以不可比拟的威力影响到正在崛起的国家。
Many in these countries are looking at this process and worrying: "Won't the wave of business concentration turn into an uncontrollable anti-competitive force?"
这些国家的许多人面对这个浪潮开始忧虑:“企业合并的浪潮会不会变成一股不可控制的反竞争的力量?”

I believe that the most important forces behind the massive M&A wave are the same that underlie the globalization process: falling transportation and communication costs, lower trade and investment barriers and enlarged markets that require enlarged operations capable of meeting customers' demands.
我认为,推动这股巨大的并购浪潮的最主要的力量,也是推动全球化进程的力量,包括日趋下降的运输与通讯费用,较低的贸易与投资壁垒,以及市场的扩大和为满足市场需求而进行的扩大生产。

A history of long and effortless success can be a dreadful handicap, but, if properly handled, it may become a driving force.
一段长时间并且不费力而成功的历史可能成为一种可怕的不利因素,但若处理得当,这种不利因素也有可能转化为一种积极的推动力。
When the United States entered just such a glowing period after the end of the Second World War, it had a market eight times larger than any competitor, giving its industries unparalleled economies of scale. Its scientists were the world's best, its workers the most skilled.
二战结束后,美国恰好进入了这样的一个辉煌时期,当时,它拥有比任何竞争者大8倍的市场,这使其工业经济具有前所未有的规模经济。美国的科学家是世上最优秀的,它的工人是最富于技术的。

Few creations of big technology capture the imagination like giant dams.
在重大技术所创造的东西中很少能像大型水坝这样让人痴迷的。
Perhaps it is humankind's long suffering at the mercy of flood and drought that makes the ideal of forcing the waters to do our bidding so fascination.
可能正是因为人类长期遭受旱涝灾害的摆布才使得人们治理江河、供我驱策的理想如此令人痴迷。
But to be fascinated is also, sometimes, to be blind. Several giant dam projects threaten to do more harm than good.
但让人着迷有时也就使人盲目。有几个巨型大坝项目就有弊大于利的危险。

Among the many shaping factors, I would single out the country's excellent elementary schools; a labor force that welcomed the new technology; the practice of giving premiums to inventors; and above all the American genius for nonverbal, "spatial" thinking about things technological.
在诸多形成因素中,我想特别指出这个国家优异的小学教育;欢迎新技术的劳动大军;对发明者进行奖励的做法;尤其是美国人在处理技术性事物所具有的非语言的空间思维才能。

When all these shaping forces — schools, open attitudes, the premium system, a genius for spatial thinking — interacted with one another on the rich US mainland, they produced that American characteristic emulation.
当所有这些成因——学校、开放的态度、奖赏制度及空间思维天赋在美国大陆上相互作用时,便造就了美国人的特点——竞争。
Today that word implies mere imitation. But in earlier times it meant a friendly but competitive striving for fame and excellence.
今天这个词仅表示“模仿”(取其仿效之意),而在早期美国,它却意味着为名誉和优秀而进行友好、竞争的拼搏。

Advertising does more for the material benefit of the community than any other force I can think of.
广告给社会带来的物质利益比任何我所能想到的方式都多。
