If you turn the pages of a newspaper or magazine, again you find an advertisement . if you walk down the street, you see one advertising board after another. All day, every day, people who want to sell you something compete to catch your attention. As a result, advertisements are almost everywhere. In the West, advertisements are the fuel that makes mass media work, Many TV stations, newspapers, magazines, radio stations are privately owned, The government does not give them money. So where does the money come from? From advertisements. Without advertisements, there would not be these private businesses. Have you ever asked yourself what advertising is ? Through the years, people have given different answers to the question, For some time it was felt that advertising was a means of “ keeping your name before the public” .And some people thought that advertising was “ truth well told ”. Now more and more people describe it in this way: Advertising is the paid , nonpersonal (非针对某个人的),and usually persuasive(有说服力的)description of goods , services and ideas by identified sponsors(明确的出资者)through various media. First, advertising is usually paid for . Various sponsors pay for the advertisements we see, read, and hear over the various media, Second, advertising is nonpersonal .

All advertisements try to make people believe that the product, idea , or service advertised can do good to them. Fourth, the sponsor of the advertisement must be identified.

B In the United States 84 colleges now accept just women. Most of them were established in the 19th century; they were designed to offer women the education they could not receive anywhere else. At that time major universities and colleges accepted only men. In the past 20
years many young women have chosen to study at colleges that accept both men and women. As a result some women’s colleges decided to accept men students too. Others, however, refused to change. Now these school are popular again The president of Trinity College in Washington , D. C. said that by the end of the 1980s women began to recognize that studying at the same school with men did not mean women were having an equal chance to learn. The president of Smith College in Massachusetts says a women’s college permits women to choose classes and activities freely . For example, she says that in a women’s college a higher percentage of students studies mathematics than in a college with both men and women. Educational experts say men students in the United States usually speak in class more than women students do. Ina women’s college, women feel free to say what they think. Women’s schools also bring out leadership capabilities in many women. Women are represented everywhere. For example , at a women’s college every governing office is held by a woman .

Lots of study and practice. But that’s not all, according to a new research suggesting that expert and amateur(业余棋手)players use different parts of their brains during matches. Scientists in Germany scanned( 扫 描 )the brains of 20 men as they played against computers . Half were grandmasters while the other half were merely good amateurs who’d
practiced for at least 10 years, For a few seconds after a player made a move , tiny bits of “focal gamma bursts ”appeared in their brains. In the amateurs, such bursts were detected most notably (显著地)in an area crucial(关 键)for performing new tasks and establishing(形成)short-term memory. But, the bursts in the grandmasters were found most often in the parts, of the brain linked with long -term memory and the a bility to perform complex(复杂的)motor tasks. The lead researcher Ongjen Amidzic said his findings, reported on August 9 in the journal(杂志)Nature, pointed our that experts and amateurs use their brains in fundamentally(根 本)different ways during a match. “As a young man ,I dreamed of becoming a grandmaster and practiced hard but I failed,” said Amidzic,

In the South and West, however, they are often thought of as being more and hospitable(好客). Ask someone from St. Nouis where the nearest sandwich shop is ,and be or she will politely give you directions. A New Yorker might eye you at first and after deciding it is safe to talk to you , might give you a rather unexpected explanation, A person from Georgia might be very kind about directing you and even suggest some different places to eat . A Texan just might take you to the place and treat you to lunch. American stereotypes are abundant. New Englanders are often thought of as being friendly and United States are often considered very outgoing . These differences in character can be traced to different factors such as climate, living conditions and historical development.

Once you get him out of the water , if he isn’t breathing , you have four minutes before his brain is completely destroyed. Support his neck, lift his head back and press his chin (下巴)upwards. This stops the tongue blocking the airway in the throat and is sometimes enough to get him breathing again. If that doesn’t work, start mouth-to-mouth breathing. Press his nostrils (鼻孔)together with your fingers .Open you mouth and take a deep breath . Blow into his lungs until his chest rises ,then remove your mouth ,and watch his chest fall. Repeat twelve times a minute. Keep doing until help arrives. To bring a child back to life, keep your lips around his mouth and nose and gently blow into his mouth. Give the first four breaths as quickly as possible to fill the blood with oxygen. If ,in spite of your efforts, he starts turning a bluegrey color, you can feel no pulse(脉搏),then pressing is the last chance of saving his life. With arms straight, rock forwards, pressing down on the lower half of the breastbone(脑骨). Don’t be too hard or you may break a rib (肋骨).
