Chores: Good for Kids, Good for You

A recent study showed that most adults did household chores when they were young. 1. Kids nowadays spend a good deal of their time on homework and after-school activities.

An expert said, “Parents today want their kids to spend time on things that can bring them respect. We have stopped doing the one thing that has proven to bring success. 2.

One study found that young adults who began chores at ages 3 and 4 were more likely to succeed. Compared to no-chore kids, they had better family relations, did better in school, did better at work and were more self-confident.Personal happiness is said to come from strong relationships. It begins by learning to be kind and helpful at home.

If your kids say they have to skip chores to do homework, do not let them off the hook. 3. “What may seem like small messages at the moment,” an expert says, “add up to big messages over time.”

Here are some important ideas from experts

4. Thank young children for being a “helper,” not just “helping”. It creates a positive identity.

Schedule chore time. Write down chores on a calendar that everyone can see (for example, posted in the kitchen).

Game it. Start small and have young children earn new “levels” of responsibilities, such as going from sorting clothes to earning the right to use the washing machine.

Keep allowances and chores separate. Do not make chores a business trade.

Do chores as shared tasks. 5.

Give chores a PR (public relations) boost. Do not tie chores to punishments. If you complain about doing the dishes,so will your children.

A. Watch your language.

B. That is doing household chores.

C. Instead of saying, “Do your chores,” say, “let’s do our chores.”

D. But the same study showed that most kids today do not do household chores.

E. You shouldn’t tell your child that grades are more important than caring about others

 

As a new teacher at Doull Elementary school in Denver, Kyle Schwartz thought of a simple way to know her third graders, most of whom came from poor families. She asked them to complete the note, “I wish my teacher knew..." and share something about themselves. Their honest answers gave the teacher a chance to understand her students’ difficulties.“I wish my teacher knew I have no pencils to do my homework,” wrote one child. “I wish my teacher knew sometimes my reading homework is not signed because my mom is not free a lot,” wrote another. Some showed hope for the future. “I wish my teacher knew that I warn to go to college.”

“Some notes are really heartbreaking.” Schwartz tells ABC News. “I care deeply about each of my students and I don’t want them to be poor forever.” She explains, “I hoped to know more about their lives and how I could better support them. So I decided to let them tell me what I needed to know. That was why I created the fill-in-the-blank exercise.”

_______ the third graders were allowed to answer anonymously (匿名地) , most wanted to include names. And some were even excited to read their notes out loud, like one shy girl who bravely said that she was lonely. “After she told the class, ‘I don’t have friends to play with me,’ I was worried about what they would do,” Schwartz tells Us Weekly. However,I felt encouraged to see how much support the other kids offered her. They invited her to play at break and sit with them at lunch. You see, children have an unusual ability to express empathy(同情) .”

“The results have been surprising,” says Schwartz. “It shows the importance of giving people a voice and really listening to them.

Christa Marie Eastburn has added a new name to the list of people she sends Father’s Day cards to—a father she grew up never knowing. In North Kansas City, the 57-year-old woman thought her father died 54 years ago, but this summer she learned he is alive. "I have a real father to send a card to this time, "she told the newspaper last week. “But I still don’t have everything that goes with it—like the memories.” Her parents, Karl Beinfohr and Ingeborg Mueller, got married in Germany in the 1940s when World War II was on and a year later Marie was born—a daughter who grew up thinking her father, a German soldier, died in the war.

This year, Eastburn found and got in touch with relatives in Germany, hoping they could tell her about her father. One day, a letter arrived in her mailbox.

"All these years of quietness, "Beinfohr wrote, "I don' t know what you have lived through. The news that she had a father who lived an ocean away brought tears to Eastburn's eyes.

Eastburn and her father began writing to each other. In his letters, Beinfohr tried to explain the years lost. Finally, last month, Eastburn went to Germany to meet her father. They looked through old photos. Beinfohr showed his daughter one of her old toys he had kept.

1.What can we infer from the underlined sentence in Paragraph 1?

B. She had grown up without a father

C. She couldn’t remember her parents at all

D. She didn't know what to write on the card

2.How did Eastburn find out her father is still alive?

A. By contacting relatives in Germany

B. By sending out Father’s Day cards

C. By looking through some old photos

D. By visiting her friends in the world

3.Where does Eastburn most probably live?

C. In France

D. In America

 

No matter where you are, knowing how to protect yourself and your family during an earthquake is necessary. Here are some tips for you.

Duck, Drop, Cover and Hold

Duck under a strong piece of furniture, if possible. Most earthquake injuries are the result of being hit by something falling on you. Drop to the floor to avoid falling or being thrown down. And protect you from flying glass. Use clothes,blankets, cushions or furniture for covering. Hold on to whatever you're using, as the ground motion may be violent. Get away from glass, bookcases or anything heavy that could fall over on you.

Stay away from the doors

Doorways used to be recommended but most experts now say: stay away from them. Doors can suddenly shut with bone crushing force. Anyway, the experts say that in modern construction a doorway is no stronger than any other location along the wall.

Try to run outside

While the ground is moving, the greatest danger is of being injured by taking a fall or being hit by a falling piece of building as you exit. If you smell gas or when the shaking stops, calmly, carefully make your way out and get clear of the building. Before you leave, get shoes on because you will be walking on broken glass. If you're in a crowd, stay calm, and take what can cover you and find where you are. In a crowd the greatest dangers are panic and the rush for an exit.

1.Which of the following is TRUE about earthquakes?

A. Floors cause most injuries.

B. Doors should be shut at all times.

C. Clothes can be used for protection.

D. Following a crowd is always right.

2.Which of the following best explains"recommended"underlined in this text?

A. Introduced.

B. Realized.

C. Suggested.

D. Explained.

3.What is the purpose of the text?

A. To inform people of possible dangers of an earthquake.

B. To tell family members to stay calm in an earthquake.

C. To order people to gain knowledge about an earthquake.

D. To introduce ways to protect people in an earthquake.

    Many of us live with a roommate at some stage Sometimes there can be problems Who hasn't had an argument about whose turn it is to take out the rubbish or who should be the one to clear up after dinner1.

You know that there's always someone else around which can help you feel safer There is always someone to talk to so you never feel lonely Besides these obvious benefits there are some you may not notice2.

To examine the effect of living alone Australian university researchers did much research and found that people living alone tended to eat less fresh food which can have a significant negative effect on long-term health However those living with others generally benefited from a more varied diet compared to those living alone

3.The researchers believe the social and cultural roles played by cooking food preparation and eating may be important considerations For example those living with friends have someone else to go shopping with and thus are likely to buy high-quality fresh food regularly

4.If people living alone find they do not have the knowledge required to prepare a particular dish or cook a certain food they may fall back on ready-made less healthy food However if they live with at least one other person they may be able to ask for help

In addition people living alone can eat whatever they want at any time of the day or night However it's helpful to have someone around who questions your decision to eat frozen pizza at 3am5.

So if you now live alone and find yourself fighting a losing battle against poor eating habits why not consider sharing a home with someone else You could encourage one another on to greater health and well-being

A Cooking skills may be another factor

B In other words roommates can draw your attention to unhealthy routines

C Living with a roommate could be a good thing because a roommate can share your expenses and contribute to your home's maintenance

D For example we're actually more likely to eat healthier food when living with others

E What could explain these findings

F It's hard to find someone who doesn't grate on your nerves has a similar cleanliness level as you and goes to bed at the same time

G However living with another person also comes with many benefits

 

A Chinese legend---A pretty maiden is trapped by a dragon. A prince must slay杀死the dragon to save her. Then, magically, they fall in love and live happily ever after. Traditional stories tend to emphasize the fantastic, magical side of love. Fate plays matchmaker. Strangers see each other from across a room and instantly know that they are destined to be together.

It isn’t difficult to imagine two strangers coming together and falling in love despite their differences. It suggests that love is challenging, uncertain, and incomprehensible.

But with more people using online dating services, a very different kind of love has emerged: one that is scientific, convenient, and self-directed. It minimizes risk and provides a choicelike on a menu. There is anonymity匿名)and the avoidance of immediate rejection. Meeting terms are negotiated online.

Online dating also allows the setting of preconditions. Computer algorithms推算) exclude undesirable traits such as the wrong hair color, race, or age. But they also exclude randomness. They reduce the chances of meeting someone different, or someone who could challenge one’s romantic ideals. Instead, they find the partner we think we want and exclude everyone else. As a result, we could be missing the opportunity of a lifetime, to meet someone we would never have expected to fall in love with.

Perhaps this new way represents a more efficient form of romance. Traditional ideas of love may be enchanting - but are they useful? Loneliness and boredom are less exciting than chance encounters, but they represent the more realistic side of love. All too often people have suffered through bad dates and humiliations. If they could just choose what they wanted, wouldn’t it save time and reduce suffering? Howeverby choosing partners based on our preconceived ideas, we may be indulging in our illusions. Instead of letting ourselves grow with someone, love becomes more about looking for ourselves in the other. What if we don't know ourselves as well as we think? Perhaps love isn’t about knowing what we want. Perhaps it’s about being open to unimagined possibilities.

The surface of Venus金星has never seemed very hospitable. Temperatures change around 470°C900°F, the result of a runway greenhouse effectand the pressure of its atmosphere, thick with carbon dioxide and sulfuric acid, is some 90 times that of Earth’s. Lead铅)would flow like water on Venus, and water cannot have existed in liquid form for perhaps a billion years.

Now NASA’S Magellan spacecraft seems to have found one more horror in the nasty landscape: active volcanoes. Last week the space agency released the first detailed map of Venus and the most dramatic images ever made of its surface. The picture offer the best evidence to date that a planet once assumed dead is actually a lively pot of geological change.

The most amazing image is of Venus’s second tallest mountain, Maat Mons, which rises 8km5 miles . Most of the planet’s many peaks, including 9.5-km-6-mile- high Maxwell Montes, look bright in the radar pictures Magellan takes from its orbit above the permanent could cover. That means they are strong reflectors of radar waves. But Maat Mons is dark; like the Stealth bomber, it absorbs much of the radar falling on it.

This interesting fact, say project scientists, is a strong hint that the mountains has recently been covered with lava^§S. Rock that sits on the surface of mountaintops appears to weather quickly in the hotchemically reactive atmosphere, creating a soil that is rich in iron sulfide(硫 化铁)• It is this mineral, the scientists believe, that can easily be seen on radar. If Maat Mons doesn’t have any, it has probably been resurfaced, perhaps within the past few years.

Such resurfacing has undoubtedly taken place in Venus lowlands: earlier images of the planet showed vast areas that are remarkably free of craters(火山坑.That would be easy to explain on a Planet like Earth, where cratering from meteor strikes is erased by steady erosion. But while there is some evidence of wind erosion on Venus, the best explanation for the lack of cratering is periodic lava flow. Magellan has found direct evidence of such flows, including domelike upwellings and hardened streamed of rock trailing down the sides of Venusian peaks. There are also signs of other geologic activities, including dramatic faulting and several distinct incidents of mountain building. But the evidence can’t indicate whether they really occurred millions of years ago. The case for active Venusian volcanoes is not yet proved, but Magellan, which is now well into its second complete survey of the planet’s surface, may eventually settle the issue.

1.Which of the following can not be possibly found on Venus now?

A. Carbon dioxide    B. Sulfuric acid

C. Liquid water    D. Active volcanoes

2.The scientists believe that    shows up easily on radar.

A. geological change    B. iron sulfide

C. mountain mineral    D. lava flow

3.Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?

A. The resurfacing has changed the images of the vast areas in Venus lowlands.

B. The wind erosion on Venus is caused by periodic lava flows

C. Streams of rock trailing down the side of Venusian peaks can be seen on Earth

D. Other geologic activities have caused dramatic and unbelievable climate phenomena.

4.What can be inferred from the passage?

A. NASA’S Magallan spacecraft fails to stand the environment of Venus.

B. There is clear and confirmed evidence for the active Venusian volcanoes on Venus.

C. Some evidence of periodic lava flows has been found by NASA astronauts.

D. Magellan will conduct a follow-up complete survey of the Venussurface.

 

Today, I felt upset, I decided to take a walk even though I didn’t know where I would go. The most extraordinary thing happened when I was out on this walk. I saw an old man sitting on a chair. He was a seller of second-hand shoes. He seemed so tired and nobody was buying his shoes.

I whispered in his ear, "You are a hero! Thank you for your kindness!” As I walked away, I glanced back and I could see him still smiling. I was blown away by the kindness I had just seen. Someone who had so little himself was able to show such incredible generosity! Amazing!

My own sadness had completely disappeared, chased away by the light of this kind act. I began realizing that I have a lot to be thankful for.

The best city beaches: San Juan, Puerto Rico

Being able to relax on a warm sandy beach in the middle of the winter is obviously a dream getaway, but not everyone wants their sand and surf to be hidden in a remote comer of an island. Instead, head to the sizzling炎热的)city nightlife of San Juan, where the streets of chic Condado back right into the palm trees and lapping waves of the Atlantic beaches. Top chefs, stylish hotels, barsclubs, and shops are all just steps away from the tropical beaches.

Puerto Rico is also one of the best tropical vacations you can take without leaving the United States.

The best swimming holes: Riviera Maya, Mexico

What’s better than diving into the salty sea? Submerging in the crystal clear and salt-free waters of the naturally occurring limestone cenotes of the Riviera Maya and Yucatan Peninsula. Spend a sunny day exploring these natural cave pools filled cool filtered water that springs from the ground below and the lush palm forests that surround them. Then head back to the perfectly located Fairmont Mayakoba for comfortable rooms and modem Mexican cuisine.

The day before yesterday, my classmates and me went to the park near my school. Can you guess that what we did there? Not for amusement but to take part in a volunteer task. We reached a park at nine o’clock. The whole class was divided three groups. Group One planted trees and water flowers. Group Two picked up litter leaving by the tourists and cleaned all the benches. The group which I was in wiped all the equipments in the Children’s Playground. All of us worked hardly. Before noon we finished work at the task. Each of us felt a little bit tired, so we were happy because we had done a good deed.
