Take forms of address(称呼) for example. The average English person4 he happens to work in a hotel or department store -- would rather die than call a stranger "Sir" or "Madam". Yet in some European countries this is the most basic of common address. Our5 "you" for everyone may appear more democratic, but it means that we are forced to seek out complicated ways to express6. I am all for returning to the use of "thee" and "thou" (Thee and thou are old-fashioned poetic words for "you"): "you" would be7for strangers and professional relationships.
  And of course, the English find touching and other shows of friendship truly terrifying. Have you noticed how the British 8ever touch? Personally, I find the Latin habit of shaking hands or a friendly kiss quite charming. Try kissing the average English person, and they will either take two steps backwards in horror; or if their escape is 9you will find your lips touching the back of their head. Now what could be 10 than that?
  1. A. at least B. at mostC. less thanD. not more than
  2. A. signal B. sceneC. signD. sight
  3. A. treeB. originalC. superiorD. advanced

  It is very important to have healthy teeth. Good teeth help us to chew food. They also help us to look nice.
  How does a tooth go bad? The1begins in a little crack in the enamel (珐琅) covering of the tooth. This happens after germs and bits of food have2 there. Then the decay slowly spreads inside the tooth. In the end, poison goes into the blood, and we may feel quite ill.
  How can we keep our teeth3? First, we ought to visit our dentist twice a year. He can fill the small holes in our teeth before they destroy the teeth. He can4 our teeth to check that they are growing in the right way.5, many people wait until they have toothache before they see a dentist. Secondly, we should brush our teeth with a toothbrush and fluoride(氯化物) toothpaste at least6a day--once after breakfast and once before we go to bed. We can also use wooden toothpicks to7 between our teeth after a meal. Thirdly, we should eat food that is8to our teeth and our body: milk, cheese, fish, brown bread, potatoes, red rice, raw vegetables and fresh fruit. Chocolate, sweets, biscuits and cakes are bad, especially9we eat them between meals. They are harmful because they10our teeth and cause decay.

  一Anne Frank
  Annelies Marie “Anne” Frank was a German-born Jewish girl from the city of Frankfurt. She gained international fame posthumously following the publication of her diary which documents her experiences hiding during the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II.
  Anne and her family moved to Amsterdam in 1933 after the Nazis gained power in Germany, and were trapped by the occupation of the Netherlands, which began in 1940. As persecutions against the Jewish population increased, the family went into hiding in July 1942 in hidden rooms in her father Otto Frank’s office building. After two years, the group was betrayed and transported to concentration camps. Seven months after her arrest, Anne Frank died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, within days of the death of her sister, Margot Frank. Her father Otto, the only survivor of the group, returned to Amsterdam after the war to find that her diary had been saved, and his efforts led to its publication in 1947. It was translated from its original Dutch and first published in English in 1952 as The Diary of a Young Girl. Anne Frank has been acknowledged for the quality of her writing, and has become one of the most renowned and discussed of Holocaust victims.  二、Samantha Smith
  Image: 1985 USSR Stamp with “Samantha Smith” in Cyrillic.
  Samantha Reed Smith was an American schoolgirl from Manchester, Maine who became famous in the Cold War-era United States and Soviet Union. In November 1982, when Smith was 10 years old, she wrote to Soviet leader Yuri Andropov, seeking to understand why the relations between the Soviet Union and the United States were so tense. Her letter was published in the Soviet newspaper Pravda. Samantha was happy to discover that her letter had been published, however, she had not received a reply. She then sent a letter to the Soviet Union’s Ambassador to the United States asking if Mr. Andropov intended to respond. On April 26, 1983, she received a response from Andropov. Smith attracted extensive media attention in both countries as a “Goodwill Ambassador”, and became known as “America’s Youngest Ambassador” participating in peacemaking activities in Japan. She wrote a book and co-starred in a television series, before her death at the age of 13 in the Bar Harbor Airlines Flight 1808 plane crash.
  三、Hector Pieterson
  Image: Sam Nzima’s famous June 16, 1976 photograph of Mbuyisa Makhubo carrying Hector Pieterson, accompanied by Hector’s sister, Antoinette.
  Hector Pieterson (1964 – 16 June 1976) became the iconic image of the 1976 Soweto uprising in apartheid South Africa when a news photograph by Sam Nzima of the dying Hector being carried by a fellow student, was published around the world. He was killed at the age of 12 when the police opened fire on protesting students. For years, June 16 stood as a symbol of resistance to the brutality of the apartheid government. Today, it is known as National Youth Day — a day on which South Africans honour young people and bring attention to their needs.

  I used to be just like every other kids, I was a very mischievous1 and I looked the way other little girls looked. But slowly my face started to change and at the age of four I was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition called Cherubism2.
  As my face became more deformed3 I started to become withdrawn. Kids at school would call me "fat chin" and "chubby4 cheeks". When I"d walk down the street I would be stared at and taunted5. Adults weren"t thing! which made me feel small and worthless. My teenage years were very hard because it"s a time when you want to fit in with your school friends and be popular and like everyone else. But I didn"t fit in, so I was very unhappy and kept wishing my face would become normal.
  I loved reading. I used to spend hours in the school and local library reading books to escape from the bullying6. Bullies don"t tend to go to libraries, it"s far too intellectual for them! But because I was reading so much my English levels increased and I got two As in my English GCSEs7. At first I wanted to leave school and become a doctor/vet/teacher/air hostess/hairdresser/nurse like my friends, but when I was fourteen I decided that I really wanted to be a film director/writer/poet/actress/producer/journalist! So I left school and went to college and I"m now finishing a degree in animation8, media and society. These years spent hiding in libraries turned out to be very useful indeed!
  I"ve often had people say to me, "Is there anything they can do for your face so you can look normal? No? Oh, isn"t that awful? You poor thing!" But is it so awful? I spend years feeling unhappy because people were cruel to me. But I realize now that it"s not my face that is the problem but people"s prejudices9. We live in a society that says physical difference is bad and beauty is good. But this has resulted in disfigured10 and disabled people like me being treated like secondclass citizens because our bodies are different and we are seen as less than human.
  My face is very different, and some would say it was ugly. But I"m proud to have it. It"s influenced me and made me stronger. I"m no angel(my childhood tendency towards mischief remains) but I think I"m okay. I learnt at a very young age that people can be cruel and ignorant and that the world is a very difficult place to live in when you have a disability or disfigurement. Perhaps I was too young to learn this. But I think having this face has taught me one of the most important things that a person can learn, that it"s okay to be different, even great to be different and that diversity is what makes life so special.

  When World War II ended, there were ruins everywhere. American sociologist David Popenoe visited a German family living in the basement.
   After leaving there, one of the people going the same way asked Popenoe, "Do you think they can rebuild their home?"
   "Surely!" Popenoe answered verily.
   "Why did you answer so surely?"
   "What did you see they put on the table in the basement?"
   "A vase of flowers."
   "Right," Popenoe said, "any nation in such a plight that has not yet forgotten the love of beauty must be able to rebuild her homes on the ruins."
   This story tells us how admirable and inspiring the people in despair who could still pursue the flower of hope were!

  Hong Kong has taken over from Tokyo as the world"s most expensive city, according to a lifestyle survey which also reveals the gap between the costliest and cheapest cities is narrowing. Moscow muscles in at second place in the survey, released by Mercer Human Resource Consulting, with Tokyo third. At the other end of the scale, Johannesburg replaced Blantyre, Malawi as the cheapest city on the planet. Mercer said the gulf between those at the top and bottom of the pile had narrowed by nearly 15 percent in the 12 months to March 2002. The research took New York as the base city with a nominal score of 100 points. Hong Kong scored 124.2; the South African metropolis just 34.4. It measured the comparative cost of over 200 items such as housing, food, clothing and household goods as well as transport and entertainment in 144 cities worldwide. St. Petersburg in Russia and London were the two most expensive cities in Europe, while in the United States, New York was far and away the costliest city, followed by Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco. Elsewhere, Buenos Aires had the most dramatic fall, plunging from 23rd to 133rd following Argentina"s economic crisis and devaluation of the peso. New Zealand and Australian cities continued to show they are probably the best bet for cheap but high quality living, with scores consistently around 50 or below while at the same time ranking in the top 30 for quality of life in another Mercer survey released in March 2002.

本田理念s1:我爱风难道 我爱风作文400字

  走在田间的小路上,看着周围辛勤劳作的伯伯、叔叔们,我真有点激动:“ 我就要加入你们的行列了”
  When World War II ended, there were ruins everywhere. American sociologist David Popenoe visited a German family living in the basement.

  It might make a larger omelette but a bigger egg isn"t necessarily a better one — and it certainly doesn"t make the hen that laid it very happy.
  That is the view of the chairman of the British Free Range Producers" Association, who says that if you want to be kind to hens, you should eat medium, not large or very large, eggs.
  “It can be painful to the hen to lay a larger egg,” Tom Vesey, who keeps 16,000 hens on 45 acres at Dingestow, Monmouth, told The Times. “There is also the stress, which is a big problem as it takes more out of hens to lay large eggs. It would be kinder to eat smaller eggs. Whenever I go to the Continent people eat medium-sized eggs yet here the housewife seems to be wedded to large eggs.”
  He also suggests people would do better eating a breakfast of two medium-sized eggs rather than one large one. “I prefer medium eggs,” he said, “They taste better, are less watery and don"t run off the plate.”
  Mr Vesey, who says he is determined to change egg-shopping habits, insists that farmers only produce large eggs because they receive more for them from supermarkets. The average price for 12 free-range eggs paid to a farmer is 77p for medium, £1 for large and just over £1 for very large.
  Mr Vesey has been criticised by industry chiefs for raising the issue in The Grocer but animal welfare experts say his argument is valid. Phil Brooke, of Compassion in World Farming, said: “Selectively breeding hens for high productivity, whether larger eggs or larger numbers of eggs, can cause a range of problems such as osteoporosis, bone breakage and prolapse. We need to breed and feed hens so that they can produce eggs without risk to their health or welfare.”
  Christine Nicol, Professor of Animal Welfare at the University of Bristol, said: “There is no strong published evidence of pain in egg-laying hens but it"s not ueasonable to think there may be a mismatch in the size of birds and the eggs they produce. We do often spot bloodstains on large eggs. As a personal decision I would never buy jumbo eggs.”
  Prices for very large eggs have decreased slightly over the past year, something Mr Vesey believes may make farmers think again about their production. He would like to see higher prices paid for medium eggs to encourage production. There is little consumer demand for small eggs, which weigh less than 53g and are mostly used in processed food.
  He thinks by changing the protein element of poultry feed it is possible for farmers to slow down the process of egg production so that hens can lay smaller eggs. He also suggests that farmers will make more profit from producing medium eggs because there will be fewer breakages. The volume of egg shell is the same on a medium as on a large or very large egg. Thin shells mean more cracked eggs.
  Mark Williams, head of the British Egg Industry Council, said shoppers mostly opted for large eggs, thinking they offered better value for money. “But it is possible consumers could be switched off from buying large overnight,” he said.
