(A) ) Helen Thayer is to celebrate her 60th birthday in a special way. She is bound for a threemonth, 1,500- mile solo hike across Antarctica. In the Antarctica, where temperatures can drop to 40 degrees below zero, she plans to walk at least 12 hours a day, with about five minutes of rest every hour. Anything longer will make her body temperature drop too much. Anything too tiring will make her sweat and freeze. She spent two years getting in shape for this venture, with a workout plan that included 10-mile runs, 20-mile hikes and hours of weight training each week. Thayer also put in a daily hour pulling a pack loaded with concrete, to train her for the pack-full of carefully weighed items-she'll carry across Antarctica.

  7.2 million Americans who moonlight, or hold more than one job. Once a week, after his day job as medical director of a mental health center, the 40-year-old psychiatrist (精神病大夫) heads to a part-time job at a treatment center for young people. Twice a month, he travels three hours to another teenage treatment center. Last year,
  5.4 percent of the American workforce held second jobs, according to the US Labor Department, and that looks set to increase this year. Many workers like the safety that moonlighting provides, says Carl Hausamn, the writer of "Moonlighting: 148 Great Ways to Make Money to the Side." The information from the US Labor Department shows that 40 percent of US moonlighters in 1997 took a second job to meet household expenses or pay off debts. Others save money or buy some special things. People also take second jobs with an eye to the future - wanting to try out a new field or gain experience. Michel started moonlighting when medical systems were unstable (不稳定的). He wanted to make sure he wasn't tied to one system that ended up failing. Just as the purposes for moonlighting vary, the moonlighters cross all age and racial groups. And they work in a variety of industries - no longer just service, office and sale jobs.
