>Cancerous cell has kill code
科学家称癌细胞可自杀
或开启癌症治疗新时代
Every cell in the human body contains a "kill code" which can be triggered to cause its own self-destruction. That's the discovery made by researchers at Northwestern University, Illinois, who believe it could be utilized for the future fight against cancer. Specifically, they predict malignant cells could be encouraged to "commit suicide" without toxic chemicals pumped into the body. It could mean an end to grueling rounds of chemotherapy.
人体的每个细胞中都包含一个"致死代码",触发这一代码会使细胞自我毁灭。这是伊利诺伊州西北大学的研究人员的发现,他们相信这一发现未来可以用于抗击癌症。具体而言,他们预测,恶性细胞将可以被诱惑"自杀",而不必再将有毒化学药物注入患者体内。这可能意味着给患者带来巨大痛苦的一轮轮化疗的终结。

>Tiny books fit in one hand
美出版社推掌握'口袋书'
"Dwarsliggers" - tiny, pocket-size, horizontal flipbacks that have been popular in Europe - have come to the US. Dutton Books for Young Readers, which is part of Penguin Random House, began releasing the first dwarsliggers in the US, with four novels by the best-selling young-adult novelist John Green, including "The Fault in Our Stars". The tiny editions are the size of a cell phone and no thicker than your thumb, with paper as thin as onion skin. They can be read with one hand - the text flows horizontally, and you can flip the pages upward, like swiping a smartphone. The term dwarsligger comes from the Dutch words "dwars", or crossways, and "liggen", to lie, and also means a person or thing that stands out as different. In the last decade or so, the format, introduced in Holland in 2009, has spread across Europe, and nearly 10 million copies have been sold.
风靡欧洲的口袋大小的袖珍横版翻背书"dwarsliggers(翻背口袋书)"已登陆美国市场。企鹅兰登书屋旗下的杜顿青年读者书籍出版社近日开始发布美国的首批翻背口袋书:畅销青年小说作者约翰•格林的《星运里的错》等4本小说。这种袖珍书手机般大小,厚度不及拇指,书页薄如洋葱皮,可单手阅读,文字横向排列,可以像刷智能手机一样向上翻页。Dwarsligger这个词源于荷兰文中的dwars和liggen,dwars意为"交叉地",liggen有"平躺"的意思,也表示"与众不同的人或事物"。荷兰于2009年推出翻背口袋书,过去10年左右,这种形式的书籍已经遍及整个欧洲,售出近千万本。

>Business climate improves
世行:中国营商环境改善
China is now one of the top 50 economies in the world for ease of doing business, due to a record number of reforms carried out last year, according to the World Bank Group in its annual doing business report released Wednesday. "China advanced to a global ranking of 46 this year, up from 78 last year, as the country implemented the largest number of reforms in the East Asia and Pacific region," the report said. Bert Hofman, World Bank country director for China, said: "China has made rapid progress in improving its business climate for domestic small and medium enterprises in the past year. The progress signals the value the government places on nurturing entrepreneurship and private enterprise."
世界银行集团10月31日发布的年度营商环境报告称,由于去年中国为改善营商环境实施的改革数量创下纪录,中国现已成为营商环境排名前50的经济体之一。报告称:"中国实施的改革数量居东亚太平洋地区之首,其全球排名从去年的第78位大幅跃升至今年的第46位。"世界银行中国局局长郝福满表示,过去一年中国在为国内中小企业改善营商环境方面取得了快速进展,这体现出中国政府对培育创新和民营企业的高度重视。
