Examples from texts

The retention of such body waste has a much more insidious effect on our health than is generally suspected and its elimination is one of the first steps toward perceptible progress.
Задержка таких отбросов организма наносит гораздо больший вред нашему здоровью, чем обычно думают, и их выведение является одним из первых шагов к достижению тылов.

He stood for a moment with his hands held down and a rueful face, staring out over the waste that defied him. Then with a gesture of renunciation he turned towards me with proposals for the systematic hunting of the sphere.
Он постоял с минуту с опущенными руками и печальным лицом, уныло глядя в пространство, затем безнадежно махнул рукой и начал строить всяческие планы систематических поисков шара.

I recalled Father, the time Senator Wade tried to get him to intervene with the investigators. I made my voice cold as ice. "You made me waste an afternoon in your bloody lobby, while I had work to do.
Я вспомнил отца, когда сенатор Уэйд пытался заставить его вмешаться во время расследования, и заговорил ледяным голосом: – Вы заставили меня прождать впустую несколько часов в вашем проклятом холле.

The peasants have vodka, the educated young people, shut out from activity, waste themselves in impossible dreams and visions and are crippled by theories; Jews have sprung up and are amassing money, and all the rest give themselves up to debauchery.
Народ пьянствует, молодежь образованная от бездействия перегорает в несбыточных снах и грезах, уродуется в теориях; откуда-то жиды наехали, прячут деньги, а все остальное развратничает.

District heating companies buy heat competitively though medium and long-term contracts with cogenerators and waste incinerators, so there is a market for heat in major cities.
Компании-операторы ЦТ на конкурентной основе покупают тепловую энергию на станциях когенерации и мусоросжигательных заводах посредством среднесрочных и долгосрочных контрактов, так что в крупных городах существует рынок тепловой энергии.

Pulling myself together, I set about writing out a fresh set of rules, in the assured conviction that never again would I do a wrong action, waste a single moment on frivolity, or alter the rules which I now decided to frame.
Оправившись, я решился снова писать правила жизни и твердо был убежден, что я уже никогда не буду делать ничего дурного, ни одной минуты не проведу праздно и никогда не изменю своим правилам.

Meanwhile the moat was smelling worse than ever, from the human waste and garbage dumped in it, through various chutes and over the curtain wall.
И все же от рва воняло хуже, чем тогда, когда человеческие испражнения и отбросы сбрасывались в него через мусоропроводы — специально устроенные в стенах отверстия — и прямо со стены.
