  15. Bill's big brother is building a beautiful building between two big brick blocks.

  1. Susie was too young to realize exactly what had happened, but through watching the other children, she knew it was something terrible. Her cries hurt Amy, and as she tried to comfort Richard and Susie, she realized with a shock that in future she must be both sister and mother. Now, Amy wondered how successful she had been, would Susie have been so self-willed if their mother had been alive? Amy knew that she needed a firm parent, but it often seemed easier to avoid a fight than to stand up to her in public. Richard, who seemed older than his ten years, was never any trouble, but Amy worried about him too. She sometimes found him lying in bed, just looking at the ceiling.

  2. As the plane began to lose height Amy tried to think of how they would appear to their aunt. With her very fair skin, red hair, and blue eyes she looked just like her father, a typical Australian. Richard, however, looked like his mother, a woman from Singapore who had met their father when she visited Australia for a short holiday and stayed. Susie was a mixture of the two, and Amy loved her especially for this. Her hair was as dark and shiny as Richard's, but not as straight. Her skin and high cheek bones came from her mother, but her eyes were her father's. Amy moved to wake her sister. "Will Aunt Helen like us?" she thought anxiously. "Perhaps our luck will change at last; then we might be asked to stay and not move on."

  3. What happened in your head and your heart when the husband on whom you’ve learned to depend finds his job so bad that he feels he must leave it, suddenly and without any plan? We are, by today’s ideas, an old-fashioned(传统的) family: four children, a house, one of two cars paid for. Like many women with children, I want to raise my children in person. I do photography, and sometimes make some money to add to the money my husband, Jack, makes. I like this way of doing things. Not long ago, however, I had to take a new and uncomfortable look at the way I’ve lived my married life. I knew that Jack was unhappy at work. But I didn’t know that he’d take such a big step without saying anything first. I could hardly believe it when he came home that day and told me, quietly, that he had left his job.

  4. Jack had worked in the same office for more than 10 years. He had gone on to become a manager. With time, We’d achieved more and more money and security(安全感). Now without his job, all security, everything we’d planned on for the future, was gone. Now, without a chance to say anything, I was cut off from my future, too. What had been our money and security was gone. It had never been ours, really, it had been Jack’s. If I said that before, Jack always corrected me. “Ours,” he said. But time proved him wrong. I became angry, for my time had been spent just as his. I’d spent many hours finding the best prices(价格), so as to save money. Jack may have worked to make his salary(工资), but I worked to make that salary work for us.

But my money and security all came from my husband. I had no control over them. Why had this never worried me before? Perhaps because I’d never had to think about it before. I should point out that I’m not just thinking about myself. Our children would, in fact, be the losers if some big problem should happen during the time Jack is between jobs. And they’re the reason that I worry about our security. But I don’t think I’ll ever forget what I’ve learned in the days since Jack left his job: that, in many ways, I and millions of other women don’t realize the truth. Our working conditions and hours on the job can’t be changed. We always take our work home with us. And if we look closely at our economic future, we see only someone else’s face.

  6. Unit 4
section B Para1+2
“I like him the minute I saw him!” “Before she even said a word, I knew there was something funny about her.” Such statements are examples of “snap judgments”, opinions which are formed suddenly, seemingly without using any sound reason at all. Most people say snap judgments are unsound or even dangerous. They also admit they often make snap judgments and find them to be fairly sound.
Snap judgments like “love at first sight” or “instant hate”, if taken seriously, have usually been considered signs of immaturity or lack of common sense. When someone “has a feeling” about someone else, people more often laugh than pay attention. Most people think you find out about a person by listening to what he says over a period of time. Others say “actions say louder than words”, usually in relation to keeping promises, paying bills or sending money home.

Because people assume “you are what you say you are”, they talk a lot to become acquainted with each other. Once two people have become acquainted, they think it was their conversation that gave them their information about each other.
As behavioral sciences develop, however, researchers find the importance of speech has been overestimated. Although speech is the most obvious form of communication, we do use other forms of which we may be only partially aware or, in some cases, completely unaware. It is possible we are unconsciously sending messages with every action, messages that are unconsciously picked up by others and used n forming opinions. These unconscious actions and reactions to them may in part account for our “feelings” and “snap judgments”.
Unit 5 Section B

I climbed the ladder, heard my dive announced, and commenced the moves that would thrust me into the air. Pushing off the diving board with my legs, I lifted my arms and shoulders back, and knew immediately I would be close to the board and might hit my hands. I tried to correct myself as I turned, spreading my hands wide apart. Then I heard a strange sound and my body lost control. Moments later I realized I had hit my head on the board.
Initially, I felt embarrassed. I wanted to hide, to get out of the pool without anyone seeing me. Next I felt intense fear. Had I cut my head? Was I bleeding? Was there blood in the pool? Swimming to side, I noticed many shocked faces. People were worried about my head; I was worried about something far more threatening. An official examine my head. In haste, I pushed him away, and everyone else who approached me. “Don’t touch me!” I felt like screaming. “Get away from me!”

Everyone was alarmed when I hit my head on the board at the trials in Seoul. Regardless, I made it to the finals. When we practiced the next morning, my coach made me start with the dive I’d hit my head on. At first, I was scared, but Ron made me do it six times. With each repetition, I felt more confident.
During my last dive in the finals, I enjoyed for the last time the quietness underwater and then swam to the side of the pool. Afraid to look at the scoreboard, I watched Ron’s face. Suddenly he leaped into the air, the crowd cheered, and I knew I’d won?two gold medals one for the three-meter springboard and one for the ten-meter platform. No one knew how hard it had been, except Ron and the friends I’d told I was HIV-positive.
AIDS forced me to stop diving; I had to quit diving professionally after the Olympics.
Unit 4 Section A

Others will want to be with you and help you if you use your good qualities. They include: physical appearance, energy, rate of speech, pitch and tone of voice, gestures, expression through the eyes, and the ability to hold the interest of others. Others form an impression about you based on these.
The trick is to be consistently you, at your best. The most effective people never change from one situation to another. They’re the same whether they’re having a conversation, addressing their garden club or being interviewed for a job. They communicate with their whole being; the tones of their voices and their gestures match their words.

If I had to give advice in two words, it would be “lighten up”! You can always see people who take themselves too seriously. Usually they are either brooding or talking a great deal about themselves.
Take a good hard look at yourself. Do you say “I” too often? Are you usually focused on your own problems? Do you complain frequently? If you answered yes to even one of these questions, you need to lighten up. To make others comfortable, you have to appear comfortable yourself. Don’t make any huge changes; just be yourself. You already have within you the power to make a good impression, because nobody can be you as well as you can.
Unit 5 Section A

  12.Para 2,3,4
Nearly half of those diagnosed with the virus are blacks and Latinos. Women and youth in rural Southern communities now constitute the fastest growing segment of people with AIDS.
Despite such alarming numbers, the federal and state governments have been slow in implementing programs to stop the spread of AIDS. In place of government inactivity, a number of local organizations have emerged.
One organization, the South Carolina AIDS Education Network, formed in 1985 to combat the growing number of AIDS cases. Like many local organizations, this organization suffers from a lack of money, forcing it to use its resources creatively. To reach more people in the community, some AIDS educational programs operate out of a beauty shop.

  13.Para 5,6,7
The owner hands out AIDS information to all her clients when they enter the shop and shows videos on AIDS prevention while they wait for their hair to dry. She also keeps books and other publications around so customers can read them while waiting for their appointments. It's amazing how many people she has educated on the job.
Recently, the network began helping hair stylists throughout the Southeast set up similar programs in their shops. They are also valuable resources in spreading information to their schools, community groups, and churches.
The organization has developed several techniques useful to other groups doing similar work. While no one way of winning the war against AIDS exists, the network shares these lessons learned in its battle against AIDS:

  14.Para 8,9
Speak to your community in a way they can hear. Many communities have a low literacy rate, making impossible passing out AIDS literature and expecting people to read it. To solve this problem, ask people in the community who can draw well to create low-literacy AIDS education publications.
These books use simple, hand-drawn pictures of "sad faces" and "happy faces" to illustrate ways people can prevent AIDS. They also show people who look like those we need to educate, since people can relate more when they see familiar faces and language they can understand. As a result, such books actually have more effect in the communities where they are used than government publications, which cost thousands of dollars more to produce.

Redefine "at risk" to include women from different backgrounds and marriage status. One woman's doctor told her she was not at risk for AIDS because she was married and didn't use drugs. Such misinformation plagues the medical establishment. According to the Centers for Disease Control, women will soon make up 80 percent of those diagnosed with HIV.
The stylists also emphasize that everyone is at risk and that all of us have a right to pro
