  • When I was quite young, I discovered that somewhere inside the telephone lived an amazingperson - "Information Please" and there was nothing she did not know. 
    One day while my mother was out, I hit my finger with a hammer. The pain was terrible, but there was no one home to give me any sympathy. I walked around the house, finally arriving at the telephone! Quickly, I called “Information Please" and told her what happened.  She told me to open the icebox and hold a little piece of ice to my finger.
    After that, I called "Information Please" for everything. When my pet bird died, I told "Information Please" the sad story. She tried to comfort me, she said quietly, "Paul, always remember that there are other worlds to sing in." Somehow I felt better. Another day I was on the telephone, “How do you spell ‘grateful’? ". All this took place in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. When I was 9, we moved to Boston.
    A few years later, on my way to college, my plane put down in Seattle. I had about half an hour or so between planes. Without thinking, I dialed my hometown operator and said, "Information, please."      
    Surprisingly, I heard the small, clear voice I knew so well, "Information." I hadn’t planned on this but I heard myself saying, "Could you please tell me how to spell ‘grateful’?"  
    There was a long pause. Then came the soft-spoken answer, "I guess your finger must have healed by now."   I laughed. "So it’s really still you," I said, "I wonder if you have any idea how much you meant to me during that time."  I told her how often I had thought of her over the years and asked if I could call her again. "Please do," she said, "Just ask for Sally."  
    Three months later I was back in Seattle. A different voice answered me. I was told that Sally passed away five weeks before.     
    Before I could hang up she told me that Sally left a message for me—“Tell him I still say there are other worlds to sing in. He’ll know what I mean.”  I thanked her and hung up. I knew what Sally meant.
    Never underestimate the impression you may make on others. Whose life have you touched today?

  • I ran into(偶然撞到) a stranger as he passed by. “I’m so sorry !”was my reply. Then he said, “Excuse me too. I wasn’t even __36__ you.” we were very polite, this stranger and I.
    __37at home, we treat our loved ones differently. While I was cooking, my daughter came up to me quietly. When I turned, I nearly knocked(撞) her __38__. “Get out of the way!”I barked(咆哮). She ran away with her little heart broken. I didn’t realize how __39_I’d spoken.
    That night,as I lay awake in bed,God’s quiet voice spoke to me, “While __40__ with a stranger,you’re calm and polite, but with those you love, it’s easy for you to __41__. Go and look around on the kitchen floor. You’ll find some flowers there by the door. Those are the flowers she brought for you. She picked them herself. She stood there __42_, and you never saw the tears in her eyes.”
    By this time,I felt sad and my own tears had begun to __43__. I quietly went and knelt by her bed, “wake up, my dear,” I said,“ are these the flowers you picked for me?” I asked. She __44_,“ I found them out by the tree. I knew you’d like them.”I said, “I’m so sorry that I missed them today. And I shouldn’t have shouted at you that way.”She whispered,“ Mommy, that’s okay...I still love you __45__.”I hugged (拥抱)her.
    Are you aware that: if you die tomorrow, the company that you are working for could easily replace you in a matter of days. But the family will feel the __46__ for the rest of their lives. We pour(倾注) ourselves more into our work  47  into our families—an unbalanced investment (投资)indeed.

  • The Writers' Strike:Making the Best of the Worst
    By now you are probably feeling the effects of the TV writers’ strike---the decision of television writers to stop working. With few new TV shows, I present to you a list of shows available on DVD worth your viewing time to keep you going during this painful period.
    Arrested Development is one of the funniest and most clever shows ever to have appeared on network TV. With a most perfect cast(全体演员), the show sets out to cover the daily happenings of the Bluth family, a group of selfish staff who manage to still put family first.
    For more comedy goodness, I recommend one of the sharpest comedies to have ever broadcast, 30 Rock. Starring Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, two stars with impressive comic timing, the show gives you a glimpse into the making of a sketch show (幽默短剧),similar to Saturday Nigth Live, from the funny writers to the self-centered cast all the way up to the boss.
    If you are looking for something more serious, or perhaps Friday Night lights might be more to your liking. If you are a fan of football, this show is probably for you. If you are a fan of great drama, both soapy and serious, this show is probably for you, If you are a fan of good-looking people, this show is definitely for you .
    If those shows were not enough for you, might I recommend a show with a more heart-pounding excitement? The Amazing Race, after twelve seasons, still remains one of the most exciting shows on TV. Teams of two travel the globe with little to no money and experience far-out adventures in an attempt to remain the last team standing.
    【小题1】 If you are fond of soapy TV shows, you will probably choose to watch      .

  • Lillian Hanson, a college student, expects to graduate in about two years. What makes Mrs Hanson different from her classmates is her age-----73 years. She has been studying at college, a few courses at a time, for 27 years.
      When Lillian Hanson graduated from high school, she went to the bank to borrow money for further education. The banker gave her no encouragement. He didn't think that a country girl should borrow money to go to college. He thought she should be at home doing work in the house or around the farm. So Lillian Hanson went home and raised a family of nine children instead of going to college. Mrs Hanson never forgot her dream of getting a higher education. When her children were grown, she tried again.
      She finds that it is the hardest part of going back to school at her age to sit in class for long periods of time. Because she is not as quick as she used to be, Mrs Hanson often gets up and walks around classes to keep from getting stiff(不灵活). At the beginning of a course in using the computer, the other students all stood up to give her a warm welcome when she introduced herself and explained why she was there and what her aims were.

    Happiness is U-shaped, for we are happier at the start and end of our lives but hit a slump when we are middle-aged, British and US researchers say.
    Economists from the University of Warwick, central England, and from Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, looked at data on the mental health of two million people from 80 countries.
    In Britain, the probability of depression for men and women peaks at around 44 years of age, Warwick University said in a press release.
    In the United States, though, there was a big difference between men and women.
    Among women, unhappiness peaked at around the age of 40, whereas among men, it was about 50.
    But the U-shape of happiness is constant around the world, and mid-life depression takes place  regardless of marital status, changes in job or income.
    The study appears in Social Science & Medicine, published by the Dutch publishing house Elsevier.
    "It happens to men and women ,to single and married people, to rich and poor and to those with and without children." said co-author Andrew Oswald.
    One possibility may be that people realize they  won't achieve many of their aspirations at middle age, the researchers said.
    Another reason could be that after seeing their fellow middle-aged peers begin to die, people begin to value their own remaining years and embrace life once more.
    But the good news is that if people make it to aged 70 and are still physically fit, they are on average as happy and mentally healthy as a 20-year old.
    "For the average persons in the modern world, the dip in mental health and happiness comes on slowly, not suddenly in a single year," Oswald said. "Only in their fifties do people emerge from this low period,"
