A prestigious scientific organisation has descended into infighting over a decision to invite Elizabeth Holmes, founder of blood-testing group Theranos, to deliver a presentation at its annual conference this week, with at least two members of the association threatening to resign.一个久负盛名的科学组织陷入内讧,症结是邀请验血集团Theranos创始人伊丽莎白#8226;霍姆斯(Elizabeth Holmes)在该组织本周举行的年会上发表演讲的决定。至少两名协会成员威胁要辞职。The American Association for Clinical Chemistry invited Ms Holmes to deliver a 90-minute talk in front of 3,000 scientists on Monday night despite protests from some scientists responsible for organising the conference, who argued that a series of damaging scandals at Theranos should disqualify the company.美国临床化学协会(American Association for Clinical Chemistry)邀请霍姆斯在周一晚向3000名科学家发表90分钟的演讲,尽管一些负责组织会议的科学家提出抗议,他们主张,Theranos爆出的一系列丑闻应当使该公司失去资格。Ms Holmes had been expected to use the session to present scientific data in defence of her company’s proprietary blood-testing technology, including a tiny finger-prick vial or “nanotainer” that she claims can generate accurate test results without traditional needles or venous draws.此前人们曾预计,霍姆斯将利用本次会议陈述相关科学数据,为她的公司专有的验血技术辩护,包括“Nanotainer”指尖采血小瓶子。她声称,仅这点血液就足以产生精确的检验结果,而无需传统的针头或静脉抽血。However, Ms Holmes, whose company is under Federal criminal investigation, sidestepped past controversies and used her appearance to unveil a completely new machine, the MiniLab, which she said could enable small samples of blood to be analysed remotely using cloud computing.然而,其公司正受到联邦刑事调查的霍姆斯,在会上回避了过往的争议,而是利用这一露面机会展示一款全新的机器,称为MiniLab。她声称,借助云计算,用这台机器可以对少量血液样本进行远程分析。Theranos earned plaudits for the nanotainer when it launched in 2013 but in recent months the company has been tarnished by damaging revelations over the limitations of its technology, culminating in Ms Holmes being banned from the industry for two years.Theranos的nanotainer在2013年推出后曾赢得赞誉,但在最近数月,该公司的声誉受到损害,原因是有爆料称,其技术存在种种局限性。这一丑闻最终导致霍姆斯面临在两年内不得拥有或掌管这一行业实验室的禁令。She was handed the ban after a government inspection of one of the company’s labs concluded that erroneous results had put patient lives at risk.对她的禁令颁布之前,政府部门对该公司实验室之一的检查得出结论:错误结果使患者的生命处于危险之中。Several scientists on the committee responsible for organising the meeting opposed the decision to invite Ms Holmes fearing it would lend credibility to her company, while others decided to boycott the presentation in protest. They believe the association invited Ms Holmes in order to generate publicity.会议组织委员会的多名科学家反对邀请霍姆斯,担心这将给她的公司带来不应有的可信度,而还有一些人决定抵制霍姆斯的演讲以示抗议。他们认为,协会邀请霍姆斯是为了炒作。Dr Andy Hoofnagle, a member of the organising committee, said he and several of his colleagues had “fought really hard to prevent” Ms Holmes from appearing but were overruled by Patricia Jones, the AACC president. “This conference is about peer reviewed science — you don’t bring in advertisers and give them the stage at a scientific meeting,” said Dr Hoofnagle.组委会成员安迪#8226;胡夫纳格尔士(Dr Andy Hoofnagle)表示,他和他的几个同事“真的尽了很大努力阻止”霍姆斯来,但他们的意见被美国临床化学协会主席帕特里夏#8226;琼斯(Patricia Jones)否决了。“这场会议展示的是经过同行评议的科学——你不能把广告商请来,让他们登上一个科学会议的舞台,”胡夫纳格尔士表示。Ms Jones defended the AACC’s decision to invite Theranos to speak and said that the leadership of the association had the right to determine who should appear.琼斯辩护了美国临床化学协会邀请霍姆斯发言的决定,称协会领导层有权决定谁应该上台发言。 /201608/459070长宁共振吸脂价格日本打算为全国57万台香烟自动售卖机安装新监控系统,可观测购买者脸上皱纹、鱼尾纹和皮肤松弛度,以此界定买烟者是否达到法定年龄。 Cigarette vending machines in Japan may soon start counting wrinkles, crow's feet and skin sags to see if the customer is old enough to smoke. The legal age for smoking in Japan is 20 and as the country's 570,000 tobacco vending machines prepare for a July regulation requiring them to ensure buyers are not underage, a company has developed a system to identify age by studying facial features.By having the customer look into a digital camera attached to the machine, Fujitaka Co's system will compare facial characteristics, such as wrinkles surrounding the eyes, bone structure and skin sags, to the facial data of over 100,000 people, Hajime Yamamoto, a company spokesman said."With face recognition, so long as you've got some change and you are an adult, you can buy cigarettes like before. The problem of minors borrowing (identification) cards to purchase cigarettes could be avoided as well," Yamamoto said.Japan's finance ministry has aly given permission to an age-identifying smart card called "taspo" and a system that can the age from driving licenses.It has yet to approve the facial identification method due to concerns about its accuracy.Yamamoto said the system could correctly identify about 90 percent of the users, with the remaining 10 percent sent to a "grey zone" for "minors that look older, and baby-faced adults," where they would be asked to insert their driving license.Underage smoking has been on a decline in Japan, but a health ministry survey in 2004 showed 13 percent of boys and 4 percent of girls in the third year of high school -- those aged 17 to 18 -- smoked every day. /200805/39040上海注射隆胸多少钱女性调查:你是企业管理层中的一员吗?Poll: Women hold senior positionsAre you holding senior management positions?Ninety-one percent of companies on the Chinese mainland have women holding senior management positions, ranking second in the world, after the Philippines, according to the results of a survey released yesterday.The poll, conducted by Grant Thornton, an accounting firm based in Hong Kong, covered 32 economies.Hong Kong and Taiwan also rank high on the list, with 83 percent and 80 percent of their firms having women in senior positions.In the Philippines, 97 percent companies have women holding senior positions."The findings suggest that China businesses focus on capability and performance when appointing senior management, and not on gender," said Alison Wong, partner of specialist advisory services at Grant Thornton.On average 65 percent of the companies in the world have women in senior management positions, the survey shows. China is ahead of many Western countries, including the US, Canada and Britain."Despite some people's perception about traditional gender bias in Chinese society, it is positive to note that todaythree places across two shoresachieve such a high proportion of business with senior females," Wong said.Almost all Asian countries have more businesses with women at senior levels than the global average, except Japan, whose rate is only 25 percent."Obviously Japan is unique in the cultural perception about women in business and women's role in the family as compared with other parts of Asia, " Wong said.The survey reflects an upward trend in the percentage of women in management roles in most economies, but only the Philippines has achieved true parity in male/female management. 据昨天公布的一项调查显示,中国内地有91%的企业聘用女性担任高级管理层的重要职位,这一比例仅次于菲律宾,位居世界第二。总部位于香港的格兰特·桑顿会计师事务所共在32个国家开展了此项民意调查。香港和台湾地区也高居榜首,分别有83%和80%的公司聘女性任高级职位。这一比例在菲律宾为97%。格兰特·桑顿公司的专家咨询务合伙人Alison Wong 说:“调查结果表明,中国的企业在聘用高级管理人员时,注重的是个人的能力和工作表现,而不是性别。”调查显示,全世界平均有65%的公司聘用女性担任高级管理职位。中国的这一比例超过美国、加拿大和英国等很多西方国家。她说:“尽管有人认为中国社会存在男女不平等的传统观念,但如今,两岸三地聘用女性任要职的企业比例达到很高水平,这是不容置疑的。”除日本只有25%外,几乎所有亚洲国家的这一比例都要高于世界平均水平。Alison Wong说:“很显然,与亚洲其它国家相比,日本对女性在职场以及家庭中的角色这一问题上抱有不同的文化观念。”调查发现,在大多数国家,女性在企业管理层中所占的比例呈上升趋势,但只有菲律宾在企业管理层中的男女比例问题上做到了真正的平等。Vocabulary: three places across two shores : 两岸三地 /200803/31794宝山区中西医结合医院做丰胸手术价格费用

上海中山医院整形美容中心虹口切割双眼皮哪家好“A compliment is something like a kiss through a veil.”Victor Hugo“Do not offer a compliment and ask a favor at the same time. A compliment that is charged for is not valuable.”Mark TwainCompliments.Some are sincere. Some are quite the opposite.Some like to get them. Some feel a little uneasy and self-conscious about them.And from time to time I think to myself that there is too few of them. They are underused and underrated and are often forgotten amongst gossip, negative self-talk and complaints about the boss, the job, the weather and milk prices.Negative observations about reality are plentiful. Positive observations are much fewer.So, here are 5 compelling reasons why it’s a good choice to use more genuine compliments in your day to day life. And a bit further down, three tips on how to give them.1. You can make someone’s day. That’s a nice thing to do.2. Increased positivity. Keeping your focus on the positive parts in people expands your own positivity. You’ll notice more positive things about yourself, your own life and other things in your surroundings. What you focus on in your everyday life you’ll see everywhere, not just in other people.3. You get what you give. Don’t keep this in the forefront of your mind while giving a compliment. It may make the compliment seem insincere and like you are just out to get something from the other person. But still, people often have a strong feeling of wanting to give what they got. Perhaps not right away, but over time reciprocity and a positive relationship can build. And in general, what you give you tend to get back from the world around you.4. Attractiveness. Positivity, appreciation and being able to genuinely express yourself are three attractive traits both in personal and professional relationships. People tend to want to hang around and work with people that have such traits.5. It’s fun. :) When you give a genuine compliment you ignite a spark of happy feelings inside of yourself.Now, here are three tips for sharpening your compliment giving skills.The compliment has to be genuine.Otherwise you are just trying to take something from the one you are complimenting. And that will not work so well. Your insincerity will often shine through.A compliment delivered with positive words but with a body language and voice tonality – the two most important parts of interpersonal communication – that aren’t saying the same thing may often not go over so well. And the rule that you get what you give still applies.What you feel when you deliver the compliment will come through. So make sure that there is a genuine feeling behind the words.Cultivate a habit of appreciation.This will let you discover all the genuinely nice things about people. With this filter closed it will be harder to see the positive things in people and to give compliments that are actually totally genuine. Try to appreciate the things around you - your home, friends, family, co-workers, computer, weather, food etc. - a few minutes a day to build this habit.Compliment on something the other person feels is important to him/her.It may be - at least in some cases - a good practise to not compliment on something that the other person doesn’t have much control over. Or something that he or she has been complimented on a thousand times before. Looks and other more superficial stuff are examples of such things.A compliment that is kinda expected will not be that powerful. And even though your compliment is genuine it may just be lumped together with all those other similar and not so genuine compliments the person has recieved.Instead, observe what makes this person tick. What are his/her passions, qualities, interests and proudest achievements? What can you genuinely appreciate about those things?And finally, remember, pretty much no matter what the response is you can still feel good about giving a compliment. As Seneca says in tip # 5: how the other person responds - what s/he says or feels - isn’t your responsibility. 对他人的表扬就好像隔着面纱给他人一个令人温柔舒心的吻—维克多·雨果在对他人赞美的同时,不要向他人要求施予恩惠。真正的赞美是不需要付对价的—马克·吐温有一些赞美和恭维是真心诚意的,而有一些却恰恰相反。有一些人很乐于接受他人的称赞,而一些人却会感觉到不自在和难为情。我时常暗自思忖,生活中的赞美与恭维话实在是太少了。它们的价值被低估,未被人们充分利用,而且常常湮没在人们的闲谈之中—像对老板,对工作的抱怨,对天气,牛奶价格行情的讨论。生活中充斥着往往是大量的消极的言论,一些积极的,正面性的言论却太少。因此,下面就列出了五个让你由衷的感觉到在日常生活中多说一些真心的赞美话语是一个不错的选择的理由,而且接下来还会有三个关于如何对他人予以真心称赞的建议。让他人心情愉悦。何乐而不为呢。对自身的肯定。对他人的肯定其实也会增强对自身的肯定。你会更多的发现存在于自己本身,自己的生活,还有自己周围的一些事物的美好的一面。你在自己的生活中关注的东西,在任何其他地方都会给予同样的关注,不仅仅是在其他人身上。有给予,才能有收获。在给予他人称赞的时候,脑海中不要闪过这种念头,这会让你的称赞显得不那么真诚,仿佛你要从别人那里索取什么一样。但人们常常会有这样一种倾向,即希望把他们获得的东西同样施予他人。这是事实,尽管这种想法不会立即就付诸实践,但假以时日,一种“友好互惠”的关系就在你和他人之间建立起来了。通常情况下,你给予他人的,也往往可以从你的周边的人那里得到。增加个人魅力。自信,懂得欣赏他人,真诚的表达自我是在生活和工作当中非常引人注目的三个优点。人们往往喜欢跟具有这些性格特性的人在一起工作。增添生活乐趣。当你真诚的给予他人赞美话语的时候,你也会在自己的内心激发一阵愉快的情绪。现在就来给你三点关于如何正确恰当地给予他人称赞的建议。赞美之辞必须要出于真心。不然的话你只是出于对他人有所求才给予他人赞美之辞。那样的话你的称赞就达不到你所想要的效果。因为人家很容易就感觉到你言语中毫无诚意。在讲一些称赞的话语的时候,总会是一些正面的措辞,同时还会伴有肢体语言和声音语调。但是如果你的肢体语言和语调并不显得那么协调的话,那么即使说的是同样的赞美之辞,但却会产生不一样的效果。还是那句话,你给予他人的,他人也会同样给予报答。当你对人家予以称赞的时候,你的内心感受也会表现在语言之中。所以,要用自己的真心感受去表达对人家的称赞。培养一种正确欣赏他人的态度。这会让你发现他人身上所有美好的,值得称道的优点。如果你还不具备这种态度的话,你就会很难看到他人身上正面的东西,也就不能完全真诚地称赞他人。试着去学会欣赏你身旁的一切—你的家,朋友,家人,同事,电脑,天气,食物等等—每天花几分钟来培养这种习惯。对他人非常看重的东西给予赞美。也许,至少在一些情况下,最好不要对他人并没有多大配权的东西,或者已经被其他人称赞过许多次的东西再表示你对它的赞美与欣赏态度。比如说外表或者其他一些比较肤浅的表面化的东西。在他人预料之中所作出的赞美评价通常不会那么有效果。即使你是发自内心的给予称赞,也会被人家跟另外一些相似的,不那么真心的赞美之辞归于一类。因此,你要善于观察分析哪些东西是这个人重视或者给予很多关注的。包括他的酷爱,他的出众之处,他的兴趣爱好,或是他引以为豪的成就。你要在哪些方面对他看重的这些东西给予称赞与评价。最后,你要记住的是,无论你在称赞对方之后得到什么样的回应,你自己的内心都会得到一种满足。就像Seneca在第五条建议中所讲的那样,对方的反应—他或她说什么或者有什么样的感觉—这都不是你所能控制的。 /200806/42592上海市闵行区中心医院整形中心上海腰腹部吸脂医院
