Scientists must communicate their message to the public in a compassionate, understandable way — in human terms, not in the language of molecular biology.
科学家必须把他们的意思传达给公众,并且要使用有同情心和通俗易懂的语言,一般人能够明白的语言,而不要使用分子生物学的语言。

The oil price was given another push up this week when Iraq suspended oil exports.
本周伊拉克暂停石油出口,这使油价又一次上扬。
Strengthening economic growth, at the same time as winter grips the northern hemisphere, could push the price higher still in the short term.
强劲的经济增长势头,随着北半球冬季的到来,有可能在短期内使石油价格涨得更高。

The trend was naturally most obvious in those areas of science based especially on a mathematical or laboratory training, and can be illustrated in terms of the development of geology in the United Kingdom.
特别是在以数学和实验室训练为基础的科学领域,这种倾向自然尤为明显,这可以通过英国的地质学发展过程得到证实。

Curiously, some two-and-a-half years and two novels later, my experiment in what the Americans term "downshifting" has turned my tired excuse into an absolute reality.
奇怪的是,大约两年半的时间我写完两部小说后,我这个被美国人称为“放慢生活节奏”的试验,却使我老掉牙的借口变成了现实。
I have been transformed from a passionate advocate of the philosophy of "have it all", preached by Linda Kelsey for the past seven years in the pages of she magazine, into a woman who is happy to settle for a bit of everything.
我已从一个“获得一切”哲学(琳达·凯茜过去七年中在《她》这本杂志所宣扬的)的狂热支持者,变成了一个乐于接受任何东西只要一丁点的女人。

Downshifting — also known in America as "voluntary simplicity" — has, ironically, even bred a new area of what might be termed anti-consumerism.
具有讽刺意味的是,“放慢生活节奏”——在美国也称“自愿简单化”——甚至孕育了一个崭新的、可称之为反消费主义的生活方式。
There are a number of bestselling downshifting self-help books for people who want to simplify their lives; there are newsletters, such as The Tightwad Gazette, that give hundreds of thousands of Americans useful tips on anything from recycling their cling-film to making their own soap; there are even support groups for those who want to achieve the mid-'90s equivalent of dropping out.
对于那些想简单生活的人来说,有许多很畅销的帮你轻松生活的自助书籍;有各种简讯,例如省钱简报,会给美国人提供成千上万条有用的点子去做事,从回收保鲜腊到自制肥皂;甚至还有一些帮助团体,帮人按90年代中期脱离传统社会的人的生活方式去生活。

His colleague, Michael Beer, says that far too many companies have applied re-engineering in a mechanistic fashion, chopping out costs without giving sufficient thought to long-term profitability.
他的同事迈克·比尔说,太多的公司已用机械的方式进行重组,在没有充分考虑到长期赢利能力的情况下降低了成本。
BBDO's Al Rosenshine is blunter. He dismisses a lot of the work of re-engineering consultants as mere rubbish — "the worst sort of ambulance-chasing".
BBDO的艾尔·罗森夏恩更加直率。他把许多重组咨询专家所做的工作视为垃圾——“典型的劳而无获”。

Few would dispute that the term applies to the Unabomber, whose manifesto, published in 1995, scorns science and longs for return to a pretechnological utopia. But surely that does not mean environmentalists concerned about uncontrolled industrial growth are anti-science, as an essay in US News & World Report last May seemed to suggest.
将该词用在仇视现代文明的恐怖主义者身上,也不会引起多大争议,它在1995年公开发表蔑视科学、渴望回到前技术时代理想社会的声明。当然,这并不意味着,对不加控制的工业发展表示担忧的环境主义者也是反科学的,而去年5月份刊登在《美国新闻和世界报导》的一篇文章似乎有此暗示。

Indeed, some observers fear that the anti-science epithet is in danger of becoming meaningless.
的确,一些观察者担心反科学这个词会失去意义。
"The term 'anti-science' can lump together too many, quite different things," notes Harvard University philosopher Gerald Holton in his 1993 work Science and Anti-Science, "They have in common only one thing that they tend to annoy or threaten those who regard themselves as more enlightened."
“‘反科学’这个词可以涵盖很多截然不同的东西”,哈佛大学的哲学家杰拉尔德·霍尔顿在其1993年的著作《科学和反科学》中写道:“它们惟一的共同点就是会激怒或威胁那些自以为比别人更有见识的人。”

Many people mistakenly believe the term drug refers only to some sort of medicine or an illegal chemical taken by drug addicts.
很多人错误地认为“药物”这个词仅仅指某些药品或是吸毒者服用的违禁化学品。
They don't realize that familiar substances such as alcohol and tobacco are also drugs.
他们没有意识到诸如酒精、烟草这些我们熟悉的物质也是药物。
This is why the more neutral term substance is now used by many physicians and psychologists.
这也是现在许多内科医生和心理学家使用“物质”这个更加中性的词的原因。
The phrase "substance abuse" is often used instead of "drug abuse" to make clear that substances such as alcohol and tobacco can be just as harmfully misused as heroin and cocaine.
他们常用“物质滥用”而不用“药物滥用”来清楚表明滥用酒精、烟草这样的物质如同滥用海洛因和可卡因一样有害。

Yet the BBC will have to change, because the broadcasting world around it is changing.
然而BBC将不得不进行变革,因为周围的广播世界正发生变化。
The commercial TV channels — ITV and Channel 4 — were required by the Thatcher Government's Broadcasting Act to become more commercial, competing with each other for advertisers, and cutting costs and jobs.
商业电视频道——ITV和第四频道——应撒切尔政府广播法案的要求进行商业化,彼此竞争广告业务,降低成本,裁减员工。
But it is the arrival of new satellite channels — funded partly by advertising and partly by viewers' subscriptions — which will bring about the biggest changes in the long term.
但从长远来看会引起最大变化的是新的卫星频道的出现,它们的部分资金来自广告收入,部分来自用户收视费。

Indeed the mere size of operations and the numbers of workmen involved rendered such personal relations impossible.
的确,单说公司的经营规模和所用的工人数量就使建立这种个人关系不可能了。
Fortunately, however, the increasing power and organisation of the trade unions, at least in all skilled trades, enabled the workmen to meet on equal terms the managers of the companies who employed them.
然而,幸运的是,工会的势力和组织在日益壮大,至少在各技术行业是这样,这就使工人与雇用他们的公司经理们地位平等了。

And perhaps most important of all, advertising provides a guarantee of reasonable value in the products and services you buy.
也许最重要的是,广告为你购买的商品或服务提高了合理的价值方面的保证。
