Here is a bright idea, a low-energy light-bulb with a twist. Its designed to be astatically pleasing. Its called the Plumen 001 and its the creation of Hulger, a small London start-up co-founded by Nicolas Roop.这是一个好主意,一个有着纠结外表的节能灯泡。它的设计能取悦所有人。它就是Plumen001,由伦敦Hulger公司出品,由Nicolas Roop和他的合作伙伴共同发明。The inspiration is really that, we know we should be using low-energy light-bulbs, but, they are horrible, so we thought we fix up by making a nice one, thats really simple.这项发明的灵感来源于日常生活中的节能灯泡,但是,真正的节能灯泡质量又不好,我想我们只是发明了一种新的灯泡来取代旧的。我们的初衷就是这么简单。For this new design to take off it must take on the design classic. Incandescent bulbs have changed very little since Thomas Edison first made them commercially available in 1879. There have been efficiency improvements, but they reached the limit about half century ago.如果这种新型的灯泡想要流行起来,那它首先要取代传统的经典灯泡。自1879年托马斯·爱迪生首次发明白炽灯泡并使它商业化开始,白炽灯泡几乎没有改良过,传统的灯泡在半个世纪以前就已无法满足人们需求了。Increasingly governments have been moving to phase out the traditional energy hungry designs in favor of low-energy alternatives. Public enthusiasm for the shift however has been not what you characterized as glowing.越来越多的政府机关逐步淘汰传统的耗能灯泡,转而偏爱节能灯泡。而群众对这一转变的看法并不如预期的那么理想。People wont exchange what they aly have for something that is sustainable, it is ugly or the design quality isnt the same.人们不会轻易更换他们平时用惯的东西,虽然老设计很丑,质量也不好。Duncan Richards is the consultant for the London design store SCP, one of the first retailers to stock the new compact fluorescent light.Duncan Richards是伦敦design store SCP的顾问,他也是第一个荧光灯的零售商。Its an environmentally sound product, and its the sort of the product thats sustainable for living idea. I think it lasts 8 times longer than normal bulb, and use that time less-energy, or something like that. But at the same time, its gonna to cite a mistake about it, its an interesting product visually.这款灯泡是环保产品,是有利于人类可持续发展的产品。它比一般的灯泡持久耐用达8倍之久,并且消耗能源更少。但同时,它同样也说明了一个问题。它只是一款最常见的有趣味性的环保产品。To begin with, the Plumen will only be available in Europe. In the UK its retailing for 20 pounds which is about 31 dollars, and a great deal more expensive than what consumers are custom to spending on a light-bulb.这款灯泡将只在欧洲销售。在英国售价20英镑,相当于31美元,比消费者平时购买的传统灯泡贵了很多。Light-bulbs have always been a low-value item, you know, people pay 50 pound for them.灯泡只会是人们的一项小的开销,要知道,人们也就花费50英镑左右购买他们。Michael George Hymas is the director at Hulger and says he believes the high price for the low-energy bulb needs to be seen in context.Michael George Hymas是Hulger公司的主管,他相信在将来社会中人们需要这种价格高但节约能源的环保灯。Because we can charge a bit more, we can use a better grid of forestall which is what pad used to call the tubes. We can use slightly better electronics which means we get a longer lifetime. It starts up much quicker, and almost instantly, and we get a...to me is very important and nice warm white light.因为每个人多花费一些,我们就能使用节约出更多的能源。我们会有更多的能源,这样人类就能存活得更久。这种节能灯泡启动更加快速,瞬间既能点亮,对于我来说,柔和的白光十分重要。Hulger aly has one design success in its past, an array of retrofitted handsets designed for use with the internet-calling tool—Skype, and more recently the iPad. But this new light represents an even more daring attempt to rework a familiar item to bring it in line with the needs of the modern day. The payoff too, stands to be much greater.Hulger公司曾经成功改进翻新过一款手机外形,那是专门使用网络语音工具Skype的产品。最近他们参加设计的有iPad。但现在设计的这款灯泡似乎更加地大胆张扬,因为每家每户都会用到灯泡,他们设计的灯泡将来有可能在生产线上大批量生产,而回报也会相当之丰富。Mike K, Reuters.Mike K报道,路透社消息。phase out淘汰注:本篇文章英文来自普特论坛,译文属原创,,。201208/195906

  

  Science and technology科学技术Premarital sex婚前性行为The waiting game等待的游戏Chastity before marriage may have its uses after all婚前守贞可能的确有作用WHEN is it the right time to do the deed?什么时候做爱做的事情合适呢?If priests had their way, it would be shortly after the wedding ceremony—but recent studies show such advice is rarely heeded.如果让神父们来说,这档事应当发生在在结婚典礼的不久之后—但是最近的研究显示,这样的建议很少得到人们的重视。Roughly 85% of the American population, for example, approves of premarital sex.比如说,大约85%的美国人赞同婚前性行为。Faced with numbers like that, what hope do the Vatican and its ilk really have?面对这样子的数据,梵蒂冈和它的同仁们又到底是做何想法呢?More than they did a week ago.相对于已在一周前Until now, the argument that couples should wait until they are married before they have sex has rested on mere assertion and anecdote.亲热过的情侣来说,现今依旧认为夫妇应将童贞留于婚后的论调,已仅仅成了一种口头宣言或是奇闻轶事。Dean Busby and his colleagues at Brigham Young University, in Utah, however, have gathered some data which support delay.然而,犹他州杨百翰大学的院长Busby和他的同事却收集了一些数据来持延迟性行为的做法。Little is known about the influence of sexual timing on how relationships develop.目前,还不清楚性交往的时间节奏安排对两性关系发展会产生怎样的影响。Even so, opinions abound.但即便如此,各种意见观点仍然比比皆是。Some argue that the sexual organs, both physical and mental need a test drive to make sure the chemistry between a couple means they will stay together both in sickness and in health.有人认为,性器官包括生理和心理两部分,它们需要一种驱动性的考验以确保情侣两人身上的化学吸引能够维持长久,让两人能够同甘共苦。Others suggest that couples who delay or abstain from sexual intimacy early on allow communication to become the foundation of their attraction,还有人认为,推迟过早的亲密性行为或者禁欲的情侣,他们之间的沟通理解成为了相互间吸引力的基础,and that this helps to ensure that companionship and partnership keep them together when the initial flames of lust die down.这样以来,即使他们最初燃烧着的爱之欲火慢慢熄灭,他们也可以保持长久的友谊和伙伴关系。To examine these suggestions more closely, Dr Busby and his colleagues recruited 2,035 married people ranging in age from 19 to 71, and in length of marriage from less than six months to more than 20 years.为了更进一步的去检验这些意见观点,Busby士和他的同事征集到了2,035对已婚夫妇的数据,他们的年龄从19岁到70岁不等,婚龄从不满六个月到超过20年不等,Their religious affiliations varied widely; many had none.而且他们的宗教信仰差异也非常之大,很多人没有宗教信仰。All were asked to complete an online questionnaire normally used to help couples understand their strengths and weaknesses.所有的夫妇都被要求填写一份网上问卷调查,以帮助夫妇了解自己的长处和弱点。Among the nearly 300 questions, participants were asked when they first had sex with their partners, whether their sex lives were currently good,在将近300个问题中,参与者被问及到他们第一次与自己伴侣发生性行为的时间,他们的性生活目前是否良好,how they resolved conflicts, and how often they thought of ending their relationship.和他们如何处理矛盾冲突以及他们考虑终结伴侣关系这种想法的频繁程度。In addition, the questionnaire had 14 items that evaluated how good participants were at expressing empathy and understanding to their partners and how prone they were to be critical or defensive.此外,这项问卷调查还有14个项目,评估参与者能够多好的向他们的伴侣表达自己的同情和理解,以及他们在面临批评或自我防御辩护时将倾向于做什么。All questions, apart from those about frequency of sex, were answered on a five-point scale, with one indicating strong disagreement and five indicating strong agreement.所有的问题,除了性爱频度以外,选择的回答都是五分制计量的,由初始的1分表达强烈的反对到5分表达强烈的赞同。Because religiosity delays sexual activity, Dr Busby and his colleagues also asked participants how often they attended church, how often they prayed and whether they felt spirituality was an important part of their lives.由于笃信宗教可以延缓性活动,Busby士和他的同事同样也询问调查参与者他们出入教堂参与教会活动的频率,他们多久祷告一次以及他们是否认为精神生活是他们生活中重要的一部分。They used the answers to control for religiosity. They also controlled for income, education, race and length of relationship.他们采用的限定了信仰虔诚度,同样他们的也划分限制了不同的收入、受教育程度、种族以及两性关系维系长度。Their report, just published in the Journal of Family Psychology, suggests that people who delay having sex do indeed have better relationships, on four different measures.他们刚刚在《家庭心理学杂志》发表的的报告认为,那些延缓推迟性行为的伴侣在四种不同的测量比较上的确拥有一份更良好的两性关系。That result applies to both men and women.并且这个结果同时适用于男性和女性。Unfortunately, Dr Busbys method cannot distinguish the cause of this.但不幸的是,Busby的方法不能区分到底是什么原因导致的这个结果。It could be, as many moralists preach, that the delay itself is improving.正如很多道德说教所言,这结果很有可能是因为延缓推迟本身就正在经历改变。It could, though, be that the sort of people who are happy to delay having sex are also better at relationships.然而,这也有可能是因为乐于推迟性生活的人更善于经营两性关系。Correlation, in other words, rather than causation.换言之,这是一种相互左右的关系,而不是因果关系。That is material for another study.谈到婚姻则是另一份研究学问了。If the result persists, though, even when personality is taken into account, it will provide useful ammunition for priests and marriage-guidance counsellors.如果这个结论还是坚持其所持观点,那么即使考虑到人不同的性格问题,它也不免成为神父和婚姻指导顾问的强力攻击火药。 点击此处下载本期经济学人讲解PDF与音频字幕 /201303/232418。

  GEORGE BUSH wanted to close it. So did John McCain. And Barack Obama promised to do so within a year of taking office. But nearly three years since then, and ten years after the first inmates stepped through its barbed-wired gates in January 2002, the prison camp at Guantaacute;namo Bay remains stubbornly open.关塔那战俘营。乔治.布什曾想关闭它,约翰.麦凯恩也想这样做。奥巴马更是许诺在上任第一年内就将其废弃。而现在,他的总统任期已过了近三年;而自2002年一月,第一批战犯踏入铁丝网包裹的大门起,都已经过了十年。位于关塔那海湾的战俘营却依旧存在,照常运行。It is, perhaps, the most glaring failure of Mr Obamarsquo;s first term. On his second full day in office, surrounded by 16 retired generals and admirals, he signed the order to close the facility that he said had probably created more terrorists than it ever detained. With majorities in both chambers of Congress he looked set to make good on his pledge. There was just one problem: the president had a timetable, but no plan.或许没有关闭关塔那战俘营就是奥巴马第一任期内最大的败笔。在他正式行使总统职权的第二天,在16位退休将军和海军上将的注视下,他签署命令关闭关塔那战俘营,他曾表示由于这座战俘营的存在而引发出的恐怖分子有可能比在押者还要多。此时在国会两院中民主党都享有多数票优势,一切都与他许诺的也一般无二,看上去他就要关闭关塔那战俘营了。问题只有一个:总统有的只是张时间表,却没有任何操作计划。;Where are we going to send them?; asked Mr McCain after the order was signed. His Republican colleagues warned that dangerous terrorists could end up in local jails. In fact, Mr Obama had in mind a facility in Illinois similar to Americarsquo;s ;supermax; prisons, from which no one has ever escaped. But right-wingers stoked public d and polls soon showed significant disapproval of the closure. In the face of such opposition, and with little support from a White House distracted by health-care reform, the Democrats quickly backed down. In a series of votes, both parties signalled their displeasure with the presidentrsquo;s policy, blocking funds for Guantaacute;namorsquo;s closure and banning the transfer of detainees to American soil.命令签署后,麦凯恩先生提出了个问题:;我们该把这些战俘送到那儿?;他的共和党同僚预计这些危险的恐怖分子可能会最终投入到当地的监狱。事实上,奥巴马对此曾有设想,想在伊利诺伊州设置一所类似美国;超级监房;那样的设施,战犯一旦被投入监牢,就插翅难飞。但右翼分子煽动公众的畏惧情绪,投票结果也表明公众对关闭战俘营怀有极大的不满情绪。面对反对声浪,当时正被医疗保险改革搞得焦头烂额的白宫当局无暇他顾,对奥巴马提议的持更是少之又少。见势不妙,民主党人随即就打了退堂鼓。在此后一系列涉及关塔那战俘营的投票中,两党都发出对总统关于关闭战俘营决策不满的呼声,进而要求对关闭战俘营的相关资金加以封锁,禁止将在押人员转到美国本土。The White House fought back, defeating an effort aimed at stopping the government from putting the alleged architects of 9/11 on trial in federal court. Then came its boldest move. In November Eric Holder, the attorney general, announced that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and his four co-conspirators would face justice in Manhattan. The trial would show that Americarsquo;s civilian courts could handle even Guantaacute;namorsquo;s worst. But just two months later, amid mounting security concerns and rising political pressure, the effort fell apart. Once again, the administration had underestimated the political and logistical challenges posed by its policies.白宫开始进行反击。在对被指控参与谋划9/11恐怖袭击的恐怖分子是否应该在联邦法庭上就审这个问题上,一举击败企图阻挠的势力。紧接着的举动震惊了所有人。在年9月,总检察官埃里克.赫德宣布哈立德bull;谢赫bull;穆罕默德和他的四名同谋者将在麦哈顿接受正义的审批。它将向世人表明,即使是关塔那战俘营中最棘手的案件,美国民政法庭也有能力处理。但仅仅两个月后,出于安全考虑的巨大忧虑以及不断增长政治压力,这一设想不得不草草收场,不了了之。又一次,政府当局对自己制定的政策没有充分考量,低估了在政治上的挑战和移交转移的难度。Succumbing to the obstacles placed in his path, in March last year the president lifted his moratorium on new military-commission trials at Guantaacute;namo and instituted a system for holding some detainees indefinitely. Civil-liberties groups called it an admission of defeat. PolitiFact, an outfit that assesses the accuracy of statements made by politicians, declared Mr Obamarsquo;s campaign promise ;broken;.许下承诺,无法实现;面对阻力,被迫让步;在去年三月,总统自食其言,重新允许在关塔那的特别军事法庭对在押战俘进行新一轮审判,并拟定相关条例无限期扣押某些战俘。民权解放组织称总统此举为承认失败。一家由政界人士创建,旨在评价政令履行程度的团队PolitiFact则宣称奥巴马先生在竞选期间做出的承诺已;随风逝去;。201201/168731

  Science and Technolgy.科技。Animal behaviour.动物习性。Smarter than the average bear.一只特别聪明的熊。The first case of ursine tool use.第一只会用工具的熊。PRIMATES apart, few mammals employ tools. Sea otters use rocks to smash clams open, dolphins wrap sponges around their noses to protect themselves while they forage on the seabed, elephants swat insects with branches and humpback whales exhale curtains of bubbles to trap schools of fish. Until now, these four examples had been thought the extent of the non-primate mammalian tool-users club. But a study just published in Animal Cognition, by Volker Deecke of the University of St Andrews, in Britain, has added a fifth and rather surprising one. That epitome of rugged wildness, the grizzly bear, seems to be the only species other than humans to have invented the comb.除了灵长类动物,会使用工具的哺乳类动物屈指可数。海獭会在石头上砸开蛤蜊;海豚在海床上觅食时,会将海绵绑在鼻子上以保护自身;大象会用树枝拍打昆虫;驼背鲸会呼出阵阵气泡来困住鱼群。至今,人们仍认为非灵长类动物中只有这四种会使用工具。但英国圣安德鲁大学的Volker Deecke在《动物认知》上刚发表的研究指出了第五种会用工具的动物,而且是令人相当意外的一种。粗犷野性的象征——灰熊,看来是除了人类以外唯一一种发明了梳子的动物。Dr Deecke made this discovery while studying grizzly-bear behaviour from a small boat in Glacier Bay National Park, Alaska, on July 22nd 2010. After a period of play-fighting with another bear and a short bout of feeding on a beached whale carcass, a bear of between three and five years of age, sex unknown, waded into the shallows of the bay. Once there, it picked up a fist-sized rock and carefully rotated it for about a minute before dropping it back into the water. Moments later, it picked up another, of similar size, and again rotated it. This time, rather than discarding the stone, it held it against its muzzle and started to rub. Using its left paw to press the rock against its skin and its right paw to support the rocks weight, the bear rubbed away at its muzzle and face for roughly a minute before dropping the stone back into the water. Then it grabbed a third stone of the same size, rotated it and rubbed its face, muzzle and neck for a further two minutes before discarding it. This done, it spent two minutes grooming its right paw with its teeth before returning to the whale carcass.这一点是Deecke士于2010年7月22日在阿拉斯加冰河湾国家公园一艘小船上研究灰熊习性时发现的。一只灰熊(年龄3-5岁,性别未知)在与另一只熊打闹了一阵并吃了一点被冲到沙滩上的鲸鱼尸体后,涉水来到了海湾的浅滩中。在那,它捡起了一块拳头大的石头,小心翼翼地旋转了约一分钟后,将其扔回水中。片刻之后,它又捡起了另一块差不多大小的石头旋转起来。但这次它没扔掉石头,反而把石头放到口鼻处开始来回磨蹭。那只熊用左掌将石头按在皮肤上,用右掌托着石头,将石头在口鼻和脸上蹭了大约一分钟后才将石头扔回水里。然后,它捡起第三块同样大小的石头并在旋转后用来磨蹭脸、口鼻和脖子将近两分钟后将其扔掉。做完这些后,它又花了两分钟用牙齿来梳理右掌的毛,之后便回到鲸鱼尸体处。Dr Deecke found, upon close examination of his photographs, that all three rocks were encrusted with barnacles and he reckons these were acting as the functional equivalent of the teeth of a comb. He thinks the bear was probably using its makeshift combs for comfort, rather than vanity. But crucially for the concept of tool-use, the animals rejection of the first rock it picked up shows a discriminating understanding of what was required to get the right amount of scratching from a comb; which rock, in other words, was the tool for the job.Deecke士在仔细研究所拍照片后发现,那三块石头上都粘有藤壶,而他认为这些藤壶的功能梳齿一样。Deecke士认为,那只熊自制梳子可能是想让自己舒,而不是为了美观。但是,那只熊没有用它捡到的第一块石头,这说明它有能力判断子什么样的梳子才好用;换言之,就是哪块石头可以拿来当梳子。这一点对判断动物是否会使用工具至关重要。An important question from a biological point of view is whether this animals behaviour is unique. Other tool-using mammals are social species. That means one individuals chance invention is easily copied by others of its group, resulting in a primitive culture. Grizzly bears have not been considered particularly sociable in the past, but if others in Glacier Bay are seen combing themselves in this way that view might have to change. It might, though, be that Dr Deeckes preening animal is unique. That would suggest it came up with the idea of using rocks as combs by itself, rather than copying someone else-truly smarter than the average bear.在此,有一个很重要的生物学问题:是不是只有这一只熊会使用工具?其他会使用工具的哺乳类动物都是群居动物,也就是说个体偶然的发明很容易被群体里的其他成员模仿,从而形成原始的文化。过去,人们并不认为灰熊具有明显的群居特征,但如果冰河湾有其他灰熊被发现使用这种方法梳理毛发,那上述观点就可能会被推翻。不过,也有可能只是Deecke士看到的那只梳理毛发的熊比较特别罢了。那就意味着这只熊拿石头当梳子是自己的原创,并非模仿——果然是只特别聪明的熊。 /201209/200897The Mathematics Of Middle-Age Sp中年发福伤不起Lets say youre an 18 year old male who runs every other day, logging 12 miles a week.假设你是一个18岁的男性,每隔一天就会跑步,算下来每周会跑12英里。Now fast-forward to your late 40′s. Your eating habits are the same. To maintain your high school weight, how many miles a week would you need to run? Believe it or not, youd have to multiply your weekly mileage 4 and 1/2 times, increasing it from 12 to 54 miles a week!现在,把你的年龄快速往后推到40多近50岁。你的饮食习惯不变。为了保持你高中时的体重,你一周需要跑多少英里呢?信不信由你,你得把每周的英里数乘以4.5,也就是从每周的12英里增加到54英里!Unless you take up weekly double marathons in middle-age, its impossible simply to ;outrun; middle-age sp. Thats because metabolism decreases with age. At 50 you just dont burn as many calories as you did at 18. Luckily, there are other factors in this equation. Gradually eating less is one way to make up the difference, since metabolism slows by about 100 calories every ten years. Thats equivalent to a tablespoon of butter. To keep pace with metabolic changes, your daily at 40 could include everything you ate at 30, minus that tablespoon of butter!除非你在人到中年时,每周进行两次马拉松长跑,否则绝不可能轻易逃脱中年发福。这是因为,新陈代谢的过程随年龄而逐渐放缓。到了50岁,你就不能像18岁 时一样燃烧同样多的卡路里。幸运的是,在这个等式中还有其他的影响因素。减少食量是一种弥补差额的方法,因为新陈代谢的过程每隔十年就会降低100卡路里 的消耗。这个数字相当于一大匙黄油的热量。为了跟上新陈代谢过程的不断变化,你在40岁时的每日菜单必须在30岁时的食谱里减少一大匙黄油。However, cutting more calories every ten years gets trickier, and limiting food intake alone isnt the healthiest approach, anyway. Between our 20th and 70th birthdays, most of us lose about 30% of our muscle cells. Loss of muscle mass is the main reason metabolism slows down in the first place, since resting metabolic rate is directly related to lean body mass thats mostly muscle. Maintaining or increasing muscle mass through strength training ups your metabolism and burns more calories, even while youre sitting on the couch! Two or three sessions a week, using free weights or equipment at a gym, will do the trick.然而,每隔十年减少更多的热量摄入越来越棘手,并且,不管怎样,仅仅限制食物摄取并不是一条健康的途径。在我们20岁生日和70岁的生日之间,我们中大多 数人丧失了大约30%的肌肉细胞。本来,肌肉数量的减少是新陈代谢减缓的主要原因。这是由于停滞的新陈代谢率与大部分为肌肉的“瘦肉组织”直接相关。通过 体能训练来维持或增加瘦肉组织,能提高你的新陈代谢和增加更多热量消耗,甚至当你坐在沙发上时也可以做到!一周花上两到三次时间,利用好健身房里的力量训 练器材或装备,你就能获得理想的效果。 /201206/187938

  In these days of dieting and weight watching, most people would love to be able to tighten their belt after losing a few kilograms. In times when food and jobs were scarce, however, tightening ones belt was a sign that times were getting worse, and there was simply not enough food to put on the table.在节食和减肥的日子里,大多数人会因为能够在减去几公斤后收紧腰带而感到高兴。然而,在工作难找和食品匮乏的时代,收紧自己的腰带则代表着生活的日趋艰难——这是因为餐桌上根本就没有足够的食物。As time passed, this physical act of actually tightening ones belt became a symbolic statement, and hence an idiom. This means that today, you can use this expression even if you never wear a belt at all. Now, ;tightening ones belt; simply means that the next few weeks or months or years are going to be more difficult, and we may have to work harder to get less.随着时间的流逝,这样一个“勒紧腰带”的行为变成了象征性的表达方式,并因此成了一个成语。也就是说,如今即使你从来不系腰带,你也可以使用这种表达方式。现在,“勒紧腰带”这种表达方式意味着在未来数周、数月或数年你的生活会更加困难,而且你可能需要干得更多但享受得却更少。注:本文译文属原创,,。201205/180841

  How Parenting Affects the Brain教育孩子影响大脑If youre one of those parents that constantly worries about their kids, youre not alone.你是否和很多家长一样,经常为孩子担心?In fact, a study out of Yale University suggested that having a child may actually affect your brain function.其实,最近耶鲁大学的一项研究表明有小孩可能会影响家长的大脑功能。In the study, researchers monitored parents brain activity when they heard their child crying,研究者监测家长听到孩子哭or saw their childs picture. Interestingly, it turned out that some of the brain areas that were activated are the same as或看到孩子时的大脑活动。有趣的是,结果发现他们大脑的某些区域被激活,the brain areas that are overactive in patients with obsessive-compulsivedisorder.而这些区域正是那些患有强迫症的人过于活跃的大脑区域。Of course, its only normal to worry about your baby.当然,担心自己的孩子是很正常的事。The study suggests that obsessive-compulsivedisorder may happen when the same parts of the brain that help us be good parents become overactive.研究表明强迫症会出现的情况是,当大脑帮助我们成为好家长的区域太过活跃。The study is also part of a growing body of research about the physiological changes that happen to people once they become parents.这项调查同时也是另外一个研究的一部分,即当我们成为家长后会发生那些生理上的变化。The question is whether people are, in some sense, pre-programmed for their roles as parents.这个课题,在某种意义上是为我们作为家长做准备。 /201208/196784

  

  

  

  THE night before Republicans in Alabama and Mississippi voted in their primaries, Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum made their final appeals at a forum in an ornate old theatre in downtown Birmingham. Mitt Romney, whom Mr Gingrich has relentlessly derided as ;a moderate from Massachusetts;, did not attend; nor did the libertarian Ron Paul. Both candidates were asked how they would ;lead our nation back to God;. Mr Gingrich railed against ;anti-Christian bigotry; among Americarsquo;s ;elites;. Mr Santorum boasted that he would ;talk about the importance of faith in public life;. In other words, they delivered a solid hour of conservative red meat to a ferociously carnivorous audience. A poll released earlier that day showed a majority of voters in both states believing that Barack Obama was a Muslim (he is a Christian) and doubting evolution. Eight in ten voters in both states identified themselves as evangelical Christians, the highest proportions so far.阿拉巴马州和密西西比州共和党人在投票选举总统参选人的前夜,在伯明翰城区装饰一新的老剧院里,Newt Gingrich和Rick Santorum进行了最后的造势演说。而被Gingrich嘲笑为;马萨诸塞州温和派;的Mitt Romney并没有到场,自由派的Ron Paul也没来。当两位候选人被问到如何;把国家带回上帝面前;时,Gingrich把美国;精英;中的那些;反基督教偏执狂;责备了一通,而Santorum则吹嘘他会;讨论信仰对公众生活的重要性;。换句话说,他们花了整整一个小时,在保守派观众面前大谈保守议题,如同给凶猛的野兽喂食红肉。根据先前的民调显示,这两个州的大部分选民都认为奥巴马是穆斯林(其实他是基督徒),并且不相信进化论,而80%的选民把自己定义为福音派基督徒,创下了历史新高。Both candidates drew huge cheers, but Mr Gingrich needed them more. He had won only two states, South Carolina and his home state of Georgia. Last week Mr Gingrichrsquo;s spokesman said he needed to win ;everything from Spartanburg [South Carolina] all the way to Texas.; On March 13th, however, Mr Gingrichrsquo;s Southern strategy failed: Mr Santorum eked out victories in both Alabama and Mississippi, capturing 34.5% to Mr Gingrichrsquo;s 29.3% and Mr Romneyrsquo;s 29% in the former and 32.8% to Mr Gingrichrsquo;s 31.2% and Mr Romneyrsquo;s 30.6% in the latter. The wins capped a good week for Mr Santorum; he had won the Kansas caucuses three days earlier by 51.2% to Mr Romneyrsquo;s 20.9%.虽然两位候选人都获得了大量的喝,但明显Gingrich需要的更多,他只赢得了两个州的持,也就是南卡罗来纳州和他的家乡乔治亚州。上周,他的发言人说他需要赢得;斯帕坦堡(位于南卡罗来纳州)到德克萨斯州的一路持;。然而Gingrich的南方战略失败了,到3月13日,Santorum竭力维持了在阿拉巴马州和密西西比州的胜利,在阿拉巴马州获得了32.8%的持率,而Gingrich为31.2% Romney为30.6%,在密西西比州Santorum为34.5%,Gingrich为29.3%,Romney为29%。这场胜利为Santorum愉快的一周开了个好头,接下来他又以51.2%对Romney的 20.9%赢得了堪萨斯州的核心会议。Mr Gingrich lost despite lavishing attention on both states. In the week leading up to election day he held 15 rallies in Alabama and Mississippi, more by far than either of his rivals. But the advertising war was predictably fierce, with the vast majority of ads funded by so-called Super PACs (political action committees) rather than the campaigns themselves. In that battle the efforts of Restore Our Future, the Super PAC backing Mr Romney, dwarfed those of its rivals. Still, Mr Romneyrsquo;s few campaign appearances were token and awkward, and the Massachusetts moderate continues to struggle with the partyrsquo;s conservative base. In Mississippi he won less than a quarter of voters who described themselves as ;very conservative;.尽管Gingrich在阿拉巴马州和密西西比州获得了大量的关注,但还是失败了。他在选举日前一周举行了15次造势集会,远远多于竞争对手,但是,广告战争还是和预见的一样惨烈,绝大多数广告赞助来自所谓的政治行动委员会(Super PACs),而不是他们自己,在这场战役中,持Romney的超级政行会;重塑我们的未来;所花的经费大大超过了他所有的对手。尽管如此,Romney仅有的几次竞选也只具有象征意义并且显得笨拙不堪,与此同时,这位马萨诸塞州的温和派(Romney)在争取共和党保守基层这一点上依然困难重重。在密西西比州内自称为;非常保守;的选民群体中,Romney只赢得了不到四分之一的选票。(选民认为Romney不是真正的保守派)A plurality of those broke for Mr Santorum. Even so, his trifecta did little to alter the direction of the race. Mr Romneyrsquo;s delegate lead remains formidable, and he has padded it during the past week by sweeping the board in Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, the US Virgin Islands and American Samoa, all of which send delegates to the party conventions even though their citizens cannot vote in the general election. He crushed Mr Santorum in Hawaii, which also voted on March 13th. Overall, in the week after Super Tuesday on March 6th, Mr Romney added more delegates to his haul than Mr Santorum did. His total now stands at 496, comfortably more than all his rivals combined, though with only 24 states (plus Washington, DC) yet to vote he is still a long way off the 1,144 he needs to win the nomination outright.虽然Santorum在三连胜中获得了多数选票,但这对选举的大趋势却没什么影响。Romney在代表人数上的领先地位依然巨大。他在过去的一周里一步一个脚印,在关岛、北马里亚那群岛、美属维尔京群岛和美属萨亚都大获全胜,即使那里的选民不能在大选中投票,他们依然派了代表去参加政党代表大会。3月13日,在夏威夷的投票中,他继续秒杀了Santorum。在总统竞选初选日的后一周(3月6日),Romney比Santorum增加了更多的代表,达到了496个,比他竞争对手的总和还多。虽然现在仅剩下24个州(包括华盛顿特区)还没有投票,但赢得党内提名需1144票,这依然还很大一段距离。Mr Gingrich will now come under heavy pressure to withdraw: if he does, and his voters switch to Mr Santorum, Mr Romney could be in difficulties. On election night, however, Mr Gingrich said that the media has declared him dead before, and that he is no closer to quitting now than he was then. In a jubilant speech in Louisiana;which holds its primary on March 24th, after Missouri, Puerto Rico and Illinois;Mr Santorum predicted he would win the nomination outright. That is mathematically nigh-impossible. But his campaign and Mr Gingrichrsquo;s released memos on Tuesday detailing their similar strategies: stay in the race, deny Mr Romney a majority of delegates and then prevail at a contested convention in August. Or, as Mr Romney himself might put it, continue dividing the conservative vote, and grease his path to the nomination.现在Gingrich在是否退出的问题上面临着巨大的压力:如果他退出,他的持者会转向Santorum,Romney就会受到影响。在选举的那一晚,Gingrich说媒体在之前已经宣布他会失败,而他现在退出初选的可能并不比当时更大。在密苏里州、波多黎各和伊利诺斯州之后,Santorum又来到路易斯安那州,这里在3月24号会进行提名竞选。在充满喜悦的演讲中,他称自己会赢得党内提名,但这几乎是不可能事件。Santorum和Gingrich发布的消息显示他们的竞选活动有着相似的策略:一路坚持,让Romney无法获得超过半数代表,然后在8月的竞选大会上获胜。或者,用Romney的话来说,他们(Gingrich和Santorum)会继续分化保守派的投票,让他可以顺利走向提名。201203/174851
