kitchen-sink (KICH.un sink) v. To announce all of a company's bad financial news at one time.

Example Citation: Job cuts and a dividend reduction are thought to have already been factored into the share price. Equity salesmen believe that there is also little that could be said to push the shares higher on the day as the management has already kitchen-sinked the business and parted with Mariah Carey, one of its most expensive stars. —Alex Jackson-Proes, "Hedge funds rush to pick up EMI's tune," The Daily Telegraph, March 15, 2002

Earliest Citation: Mr Anderson declined to comment last week on the extent of losses. But analysts said they would include massive write-downs of assets, substantial provisions for future contracts and hefty reorganisation costs. ''There's going to be a lot of kitchen-sinking in the results and they'll look terrible,'' said Peter Knox of Salomon Brothers. —Martin Winn, "Ferranti set to unveil big losses," The Independent, July 15, 1990 There's also a second, much rarer, sense for this verb: When arguing or fighting with a partner, to complain not only about a recent problem, but also about numerous past problems. Here's the earliest citation for this sense:
There's a whole chapter in the Hite book on unfair tactics men use in fights ... withdrawal, ridicule, teasing, emotional violence. But there's no mention of the classic female tactics ... like "kitchen-sinking", where she drags in ammunition from every battle they have ever fought, dredging her elephantine memory for past hurts, never-forgotten sins he once committed. —Bettina Arndt, "Are men really so terrible?," Sun Herald, November 8, 1987

Notes: This verb is based on the idiom everything but the kitchen sink, which hails from World War II. (Back then it referred to a heavy bombardment in which it appeared the enemy was firing everything but the kitchen sink.) The verb is based on a sensible strategy: If a company must divulge some bad news in its financial results, then it might as well bring all of its fiscal skeletons out of the accounting closet. The reasoning is that although the company's share price may drop a bit more than it otherwise would, it will drop far less than if the company announced each bit of bad news separately.

内事不决问Baidu,外事不决问Google。

kitchen sink strategy怎么来滴捏。有个俗语叫everything but the kitchen sink,意思是很多东西。为撒捏,因为字面意思是,撒都带来了,就那个水槽没搬出来了,是不是很多东西哇。

那 么这个kitchen sink strategy怎么理解呢,这个更狠,那个everything but the kitchen sink.没把水槽搬过来,已经解释为“很多东西,几乎所有东西”,那么这个kitchen sink strategy,连水槽都搬来了,是不是就是不择手段的意思捏 这里OBAMA攻击希拉里为了获胜不择手段。The ends justify the means.

谢楼上~~ 再问:今天BBC出现的parapolitics什么意思俄。。。中文该怎么翻译? [ 本帖最后由 北星束 于 2008-4-23 23:11 编辑 ]

原帖由 北星束 于 2008-4-23 23:07 发表 谢楼上~~ 再问:今天BBC出现的parapolitics什么意思俄。。。中文该怎么翻译?

 

The term parapolitics was first conceived and elaborated by Professor Raghavan Iyer of Oxford University in his work Parapolitics: Toward the City of Man. It goes beyond the confines of past and present modalities of encounter and embraces a richer view of the political than is found in the politics of stability, power and self-preservation.

Parapolitics is best understood as the noetic activity of continually rethinking the foundations as well as the frontiers of political principles, systems and issues.

谢谢楼上,后来自己也google了一下的说,不知道这个解释为准政治对不对?
para-
1 beyond
  the paranormal (=strange unnatural events, beyond normal experience)
2 very similar to something
  terrorists wearing paramilitary uniforms
3 relating to a profession and helping more highly trained people
  a paramedic (=someone who helps a doctor) a paralegal (=someone who helps a lawyer)
4 relating to parachutes
  a paratrooper paragliding

parapolitical 应该是第二个意思


All sunshine without shade, all pleasure without pain, is not life at all.
