Passage 28 What do Napoleon, Clinton and Wang Nan have in common? They are all left-handed. Today, about 15% of the number of people is left-handed. But why are people left-handed? The answer is the way the brain (大脑) works. The brain has two halves the right half controls the left side of the body, and the left controls the right side of the body. So right-handed people have a strong left-brain and left-handed people have a strong right brain. The two halves of he brain are about the same size. But each side controls different things. The left side controls language, math and logical (逻辑的). When you remember new words, or when you put things in order, you use your left side. The right side of the brain controls your love of art, colors and music. It is also good at recognizing (识别) faces. This does not mean that all 课件下载[www.sasadown.cn]artists are left-handed and all accountants (会计) are right-handed. Some right-handers have a strong right brain, and some left-handers have a strong left-brain.

Under the functions are the numbers. These numbers are shown as on telephone, from zero through nine. You can press the numbers to set the coo 课件下载[www.sasadown.cn]king time in seconds or minutes. Under the numbers are Start and Clear. A microwave oven will automatically (自动的) cook on HIGH (power level

Children sleep more than grown-ups?perhaps 14 to 18 hours soon after birth, going down to grown-up levels by early teenage (青少年).

Passage 31 Some people want to be sent into space after their death, others want to lie deep under the sea. But most people want to go into the freezer (冷藏库). These 课件下载[www.sasadown.cn]are believers in cryogenics (低温冷冻学). Now some diseases can't be cured, but they may be cured sometime in the future. So some people hope that their bodies can be frozen after they die. When a cure is found,warm up his or her body, bring it back to life and take the cure. Once the body is frozen, it is kept in liquid nitrogen(液 态氮)at a temperature of 328 degrees below zero. Now around a thousand people are going to take cryogenic treatment (处理), though most scientists say it won't work. If we freeze huge creatures(生物)like humans, every one of their cells(细胞)will be broken. Can they be brought back to life in the future?
