Doctors now operate on infants born with cataracts early in life to prevent vision loss; before Dr. Hubel’s and Dr. Wiesel’s research, doctors removed cataracts from infants between ages 6 months and 24 months, with poor results. The research also led to earlier treatment for strabismus, a condition in which the eyes are not properly aligned.


U.S.-Russia Talks on Syria's Arms Make Progress

By PETER BAKER and MICHAEL R. GORDON


President Obama's decision came as American and Russian negotiators meeting in Geneva on Friday moved closer to an agreement that would seek to ultimately strip Syria of its chemical weapons.






There are good reasons to object both to the timing and the details of the spending cuts. But the idea that they will produce anything like a stripped-down state looks far-fetched.
我们有充分的理由反对支出削减的时机和细节。但认为这将缔造一个“瘦身”政府的想法,听上去也太牵强了。

In particular, the Taiwan-based company has been working to address the challenges of making displays more power-efficient and working with chip manufacturers to strip down their products. The technologies are aimed at multiple Foxconn customers, this person said.


And not some stripped-down version of the technology, either, but technology that is capable of playing games and other sophisticated content. So Intel and Adobe announced plans to adapt its Flash Player 10 technology to consumer-electronics devices by the first half of 2010.





 TOKYO — Japan's Olympus said on Friday it had stripped the company's first ever non-Japanese president of his title, just six months after appointing him and only two weeks after he was also named chief executive. Citing management differences ...

It would be interesting to follow up Bragg's comments on Cardinal Wolsey and the asset-stripping of the Church in England. And maybe the corners of the country he didn't get to. Try e.g. Eamonn Duffy's 'The Stripping of the Altars'.

◎陳成良
In less than a decade, that smartphone you’re holding could have 32 times the memory, 20 times the bandwidth and a microprocessor core no bigger than a red blood cell, the CTO of chip design company ARM said on Thursday.
再過不到10年,你手拿的智慧手機可能有32倍記憶容量、20倍頻寬,以及1個不會比紅血球細胞大的微處理器核心,晶片設計公司安謀的技術長週四說。
ARM has already helped develop a prototype, implantable device for monitoring eye-pressure in glaucoma patients that measures just 1 cubic millimeter, CTO Mike Muller said at ARM’s TechCon conference in Silicon Valley Thursday. The device includes a microprocessor sandwiched between sensors at the top and a battery at the bottom.
安謀已協助開發出一個偵測青光眼病患眼壓的植入性裝置原型,大小只有1立方毫米,技術長麥克.穆勒週四在矽谷舉辦安謀TechCon大會上說。該裝置包含了一顆微處理器,夾在上端感應器與底部一個電池之間。
Strip away those extra components, rearrange the transistors into a cube and apply the type of advanced manufacturing process expected in 2020, and you’d end up with a device that occupies about the same volume as a blood cell, Muller said.
拿掉這些多餘元件,把電晶體重整成一個立方體,再應用預期2020年出現的那種先進製程,結果就能打造出一個所占容積跟一個血球約同樣大小的裝置,穆勒說。
ARM designs the processor cores used in most of today’s smartphones and tablets, and smaller cores are generally more energy efficient, he said. That helps to extend battery life.
安謀設計的處理器核心為今日大多數智慧手機、平板電腦所使用,較小的核心通常較節能,他說。那有助於延長電池使用時間。
That’s a good thing, because battery technology is advancing much more slowly, and Muller expects only a two-fold improvement in battery performance by the end of the decade.
那是件好事,因為電池科技進展速度緩慢許多,穆勒預測到了本十年末,電池效能只會有兩倍的改善。

CTO:為Chief Technology Officer 的縮寫,技術長,又常稱為首席技術官、科技長。
be sandwiched between something and something:被夾在兩個東西中間。例句:The tiny kingdom was sandwiched between Austria and Czechoslovakia.(這個小王國夾處在奧地利與捷克斯洛伐克之間。)
end up:片語,結束、告終。例句:Wasteful people usually end up in debt.(浪費的人最後往往負債。)




As you return to the main street and the train station, stop for lunch at Ichinoya (1-18-10 Matsue-cho; 81-49-222-0354). The specialty here, as in many restaurants in Kawagoe, is unagi. A 2,400 yen offering includes four strips of delicate, savory eel on a bed of fluffy rice served in a lacquer box. Five types of pickles and a clear broth complete the meal.
