  10. We are often shown / told these daysthat....

  But is this really the case?

  10.1 We are often told that technological know-how,acquired in exploring space, will be utilized to makelife better on earth. Is this really the case? What hasthe space exploration done to relieve the sufferingof the earth's starving millions? In what way has itraised the standard of living of anyone of us? Man may put human beings on the moon, butthere is growing skepticism about his ability to solve human problems closer to home.

  我们经常听说在探索空间中获得的技术知识将用来改善我们地球上的人的生活。情况真的如此吗?太空探索对减轻地球上正在挨饿的千百万人的痛苦到底做了什么呢?它从什么方面提高了我们的生活水平呢?人类能够把人自己送上月球,但人们越来越怀疑其解决地球上人自己问题的能力。

  11 Recently the rise in / phenomenon of /problem of / question of ... has drawn /aroused public / popular / grave / world-wideattention / caused /aroused wide / general /considerable / international concern / arisen/loomed up /cropped up as controversial /asnoteworthy/more distinctly for settlement

  11.1 Recently, the alarm about the problem of theuse of genetic technologies on human beings havecaused wide public concern, and understandably so.With nuclear energy threatening globalcatastrophe and with so many other technological advances visibly damaging the quality oflife, who would wish to have scientists tampering with man's inner nature? Indeed, fear of suchmanipulation may amuse even more anxiety than fear of death.

  最近,有关把遗传技术用于人类自身而产生的问题的警示已引起了公众的广泛关注。这是可以理解的。核能开发正威胁着全球的生存,其它许多技术进步也正明显地危害生活的质量。在这种情况下,谁还会希望科学家来任意改变人体内部机能呢?确实,害怕对人的操纵所引起的担忧可能会超过对死亡的害怕。

  11.2 Recently psychologists have found only about two percent of adults use their creativity,compared with ten percent of seven-year-old children. When five-year-olds were tested, theresult soared to ninety percent! The findings set off many people thinking. Curiosity andoriginality are daily occurrences for the small child, but somehowmost of us lose the freedomand flexibility of the child as we grow older. The need to follow "directions" and "do-it-right",plus the many societal constraints we put on ourselves, prevent us from using our creativepotential.

  最近,心理学家发现在使用自己创造力方面,成人只有2%,而7岁的儿童竟有10%。如果在5岁的儿童中测试,这个数上升到90%。这些发现引起许多人思索。好奇心和创造性每天可在小孩子身上发现,而当我们逐步长大成人,多数人丧失了孩子的那种自由和灵活性。“按常规去做”,“按正确的去做”,以及种种社会的清规戒律把我们束缚住了,使我们无法发挥自己的创造潜力。

  12 Recently the issue / problem / question of... hasbeen in the limelight. / brought into focus. / broughtto public attention. / posed among the generalpublic.

  12.1 The problem of development vs. environmenthas now been in the limelight. Nowhere is the clashmore visible than in China, where the world's largestpopulation faces pollution, deforestation and acidrain on a large scale.

  现在发展与环境的问题已成为人们议论的中心。在中国这对矛盾表现得尤为明显。这个世界上人口最多的国家正面临着大量的环境污染、森林减少以及酸雨的袭击。
