such an understanding makes one wonder whether our DNA is the only way to create life. Is it possible that life could exist whitout DNA ? Certainly we have not discovered any forms of non-DNA life on Earth. However ,in different environments on other planets where itis extremely hot or cold , the chemistry may be unimaginable. この英文がいまいち訳せません。どなたかわかりやすい訳を教えてください。お願いします。

とりあえず直訳します。 そのような理解が、人を、DNAだけが命を作るのかしらと思わせます。 DNAなくして生命が存在することはありうるのでしょうか? たしかに私たちは地球上でDNAのない形の生命をまだ発見していません。しかし、非常に暑かったり寒かったりする他の惑星の 違う環境では、化学は思いもよらないものであるかもしれないのです。 となります。 つまりこの前の文章でその「理解」について書かれていて、その 理解があると、命を作るのはDNAだけなの?と思ってしまうのです。 そしてDNAがなくても生命は存在できるのでしょうか?と。 最後の文は、言いたいことは、地球にはまだDNAのない生命は 発見されてないけど、環境が著しく違うほかの惑星では地球での 化学の法則も狂うでしょうし、DNAのない生命がいるかもしれない ということです。

    お願いします。  All that is amazing enough.What is even more amazing is that a poem he wrote when he was not much more than a teenager explains all that he knew and learned without a single number,equation,or diagram.Aryabhate wanted his information to be easy to remember.So he put all the numbers into a code of letters and combinations of letters,which he explains at the beginning of the poem,called the Aryabhatiyam.Then,in 121 verses,he explains the way the planets move in the sky better than anyone else would for 1,000 years.For Aryabhate,astronomy was a way of understanding the deities.As he wrote,“One who knows these verses,one who knows the movements of planets and celestial spheres,goes much beyond them and attains the absolute Brahman.”  At first,people learned his poem and passed it on without writing it down.The fact that it wasn't written down at first may be one reason we still have it.Insects and mildew destroyed Indian manuscripts,which were written on birch bark or palm leaves,very quickly.  Oddly,Aryabhate seems not to have known about India's biggest contribution to math and science,although his students did.What is it? Zero.You know-nothing.Believe it or not,no one had ever considered zero a number before.Had that ever messed up their arithmetic!  If the number zero is nothing,why is it such a big deal? Because by using the number zero,people can write numbers in columns,which makes adding,subtracting,and especially multiplying and dividing much easier.

    多少長いので、簡単にでもいいです。 冷やかし無しで和訳をお願いします・・。 While the enterprise may have a life of its own, its present health and future growth surely depend on the individuals who guide its activities. Just what, then are the functions of the executives responsible for the fortunes of the enterprise? They coordinate, appraise, and plan. They may, at the same time, do the actual buying, selling, advertising, accounting, manufacturing, engineering, or research, but in the modern enterprise the execution or carrying out of these functions is usually left to such employees as salesmen, buyers, production supervisors and foremen,, technicians, and designers. In many cases, the executive does not even personally supervise the working force but rather administers the duties of other executives. In planning and coordinating the work of subordinate managers or supervisors, he allocates tasks and makes available the necessary equipment, materials, and other physical resources necessary to carry out the various jobs, In appraising their activities, he must decide whether the employees or subordinate managers are handling their tasks satisfactorily. If not, he can take action by changing or bringing in new physical equipment and supplies, by transferring or shifting the personnel, or by expanding or cutting down available funds. Thus, the term, administration, as used here, includes executive action and orders as well as the decisions taken in coordinating, appraising, and planning the work of the enterprise and in allocating its resources.

    Why Chinese Mothers Are Superiorという記事の日本語訳教えてください。よろしくお願いします。 Other studies indicate that compared to Western parents, Chinese parents spend approximately 10 times as long every day drilling academic activities with their children. By contrast, Western kids are more likely to participate in sports teams. What Chinese parents understand is that nothing is fun until you're good at it. To get good at anything you have to work, and children on their own never want to work, which is why it is crucial to override their preferences. This often requires fortitude on the part of the parents because the child will resist; things are always hardest at the beginning, which is where Western parents tend to give up. But if done properly, the Chinese strategy produces a virtuous circle. Tenacious practice, practice, practice is crucial for excellence; rote repetition is underrated in America. Once a child starts to excel at something—whether it's math, piano, pitching or ballet—he or she gets praise, admiration and satisfaction. This builds confidence and makes the once not-fun activity fun. This in turn makes it easier for the parent to get the child to work even more. Chinese parents can get away with things that Western parents can't. Once when I was young—maybe more than once—when I was extremely disrespectful to my mother, my father angrily called me "garbage" in our native Hokkien dialect. It worked really well. I felt terrible and deeply ashamed of what I had done. But it didn't damage my self-esteem or anything like that. I knew exactly how highly he thought of me. I didn't actually think I was worthless or feel like a piece of garbage. As an adult, I once did the same thing to Sophia, calling her garbage in English when she acted extremely disrespectfully toward me. When I mentioned that I had done this at a dinner party, I was immediately ostracized. One guest named Marcy got so upset she broke down in tears and had to leave early.

    【本文】   “We wish to suggest a structure for the salt of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). This structure has novel features which are of considerable biological interest.” This is how James Watson and Francis Crick announced in 1956 that they had worked out the structure of the “molecule of life”. Many scientists regard it as the most important scientific discovery of the 20th century.   The DNA molecule is like a ladder that has been twisted into a spiral like a corkscrew. Four base molecules are spread along the legs of the ladder: A (adenine), T(thymine), C(cytosine), and G(guanine). The rungs of the ladder are bonds linking the four base molecules on the ladder legs. A is always linked with T and C is always linked with G. The DNA molecule reproduces itself by unwinding the two legs of the ladder. Each leg then combines with a new leg and two identical molecules are formed. This is how living organisms are able to reproduce. Each cell in our body is about one millionth of a meter in diameter, but contains about two meters of DNA.   Every living organism, plant or animal, is determined by its DNA and the way the four base molecules are arranged. The arrangement of those four base molecules determines whether the organism is, for example, a plant or an animal, a mosquito, an elephant or a human being. And each individual within a species has its own DNA, which determines whether that individual has straight or curly hair, or fair or dark skin.   Scientists are now using DNA to study our history. In the 19th century, anthropologists found fossil remains of what they thought were early human beings. They called them “Neanderthal man” after the valley in which their remains were first found. It was thought that they were our ancestors and that we had evolve from them. However, comparisons of Neanderthal DNA with DNA of modern humans showed that while we do have an ancestor in common, we developed from this common ancestor separately. We now know that the Neanderthal line of development split from the human one about 500,000 years ago. Neanderthals and humans are different species just as chimpanzees and humans are different species. DNA studies show that all modern humans descended from one woman who lived about 200,000 years ago.   In the movie Jurassic Park, scientists bring extinct dinosaurs back to life. They use dinosaur DNA taken from preserved mosquitoes that fed on dinosaur blood. This may no longer be science fiction. The first successful extraction of DNA from an extinct animal was done in 1984. The quagga was an African animal very closely related to the zebra, with very similar DNA. The quagga used to be common in Africa, but became extinct in 1887. In 1984 scientists at The University of California extracted quagga DNA from a skin preserved in a museum. The South African Museum has set up a program to clone the quagga using zebras as host mothers. Scientists at the Australian Museum in Sydney have isolated the DNA of a Tasmanian Tiger, which became extinct in 1936, aiming to bring it back as well. The problem with bringing dinosaurs back is that they have been extinct for 65 million years. It is unlikely that any dinosaur DNA has survived. 問題のURLはこちらです。http://detail.chiebukuro.yahoo.co.jp/qa/question_detail.php?qid=1027265645 この問題の自分の答えがd.a.b.c.d.a.になりました。 答え合わせよろしくお願いします。
