U.S. Cyclists Arrive in Beijing Wearing Masks

Four track cyclists were the first athletes to be seen wearing masks or doing anything proactive to combat the effects of pollution, a major concern at the Games.





Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.


梁先生: "最近都在「搞」念力治療,所以知道古德明以下這一篇說法有誤。有些老美是相信人可對癌症主動/ 反制攻擊(≠積極治療)。


古先生這篇的貢獻是提出有人人用語不清楚 可以改善
不過 反過來原文可以說得通
認定proactive 與positive 幾乎同義 因為它們形容 spirit
主要是他不了解positive還有其他說法
而誠如梁先生所說
有些療法認為"人之飲食-作息-心境"等等(這些可從spirit出發) 可以改變"癌症惡化或阻它擴散等等"
