The organic strawberries were smaller on average than conventional berries, but each piece of organic fruit actually contained more dry matter—the meat, if you will, of the berry.

"if you will"几乎跟"you know"一样是个毫无意义的插入语
因为"含有更多果肉"比"含有更多干物质"容易明白得多,担心读者不解,遂加入meat的注释
可以理解成 if you know what I mean, 或者 if you call it like that(这里就是meat咯)

请教达人们,不甚感激! 红色部分什么意思。
LAST month a spokesman for Canada’s prime minister sent reporters a breathless e-mail recounting the exploits of two CF-18 fighter jets. It said they had forced Russian bombers heading for Canada’s Arctic airspace to turn around, and ended with a boast that the government was giving pilots “staring down Russian long-range bombers” the best equipment possible

2.In the 1990s a Liberal government balanced the budget on the back of the army

3.And its most recent budget would increase defence spending by just 1.5%, a far cry from the 9% average growth in 2006-09.

1. stare someone down/out: to look at someone for so long that they have to look away 就是盯着某人看,直到对方动摇或者屈服而转移目光,这就跟文中说的they had forced Russian bombers heading for Canada’s Arctic airspace to turn around有点相同的意义啦,只是这里将long-range bombers拟人化


2. on the back of something: because of something, or helped by something
    e.g. Share prices rose sharply on the back of a rise in profits.


3. be a far cry from (INFORMAL): to be very different from someone or something
    e.g. Paris was a far cry from the village where she grew up.

请教语法问题。大家捧个场阿,谢谢了~~~
skulking around Morelia after dark, a 17-year-old Agustín Torres would wait until midnight
before sticking up posters for the National Action Party (PAN). Any earlier, and he risked being photographed by authorities monitoring subversives in the western city.(如果早点出来贴的话,就会有....风险)
这句话是假设,不是应该用虚拟语气吗?any earlier,he would have risked being.............

2-- No matter how the state elections play out, however, national politicians in vast, federal Brazil are used to striking deals with governors across party lines.
是不是该中间去掉逗号,加个and? 只有2个并列的时候要AND的吧?另外in vast=in general吗?

貌似你是Desperate Housewives的粉丝。。。

1. 这句话应该是Economist杂志上的。手边没有语法书,但是在网上查到了几个同样的句子。这里的句型是Any earlier, and he...,注意这里多加了一个and。

    and有一条解释是:used to say that something is caused by something else [用于表示结果]
    e.g. I missed supper and I'm starving! 我没吃晚饭,所以现在饿极了!
          She fell downstairs and broke her leg. 她摔下了楼梯,摔断了腿。(From Longman)

    此处的and就应该是这个意思。而且此处的risk的意思是: to put sth in a situation in which it could be lost, destroyed, or harmed “使遭受(失去、毁坏或伤害)的危险”(From Longman)。也就是说,risk后面跟的sth/doing sth,只是“could”遭受某种危险,并没有实际发生,其实已经包含了虚拟语气的意思了。再用would have risked,是不是有点多此一举呢?

2. vast 和federal,都是修饰Brazil的,两个形容词修饰同一个名词,中间可以用逗号隔开。并不是national politicians in vast 和 federal Brazil并列,所以也就没有in vast这样的短语哈。

In 2007, 87 percent of the things we bought -- our purchases -- were made with plastic on credit cards.  
请问这句话的红线部分能不能理解为,我们购买的物品,特别是塑料制品,都靠刷信用卡消费。。这样译感觉有点不对。是不是我理解有问题。。

  麻烦解答一下。
