( ) 41. As we know, we put food on a plate and water in a glass on earth. Gravity(地心引力) holds the food down and keeps the water in the glass. But in space, there is almost no gravity. So food can float away, and astronauts must eat and drink carefully.
（ ）42. In space, sleeping is very different. Some astronauts like to float in the air, but most astronauts like to be in a sleeping bag. They tie the bag to a wall so that they can’t float at night.
（ ）43. Exercise is very important in space. On earth, your legs carry your body, but in space, astronauts float, so they do not use their legs. This is bad for their legs, so they exercise for thirty minutes every day. They often use an exercise bike for this.
（ ）44. Many people can use computers, but few of them know how to look after 4
them. Remember the following when you use computers: Keep your computer in a cool, dry room, do not put water or food near your computer, and keep your screen clean and not too bright.
（ ）45. Some things can carry messages. For example, a sign at the bus stop helps you to know which bus to take. Signs on the door tell you where to go in or out. Have you ever noticed that there are a lot of signs around you and that you receive messages from them all the time?

Education is very important in the development of China. As we know, China has the largest population in the world and most of them live in the countryside. Because of the undeveloped economic conditions, many families are rather poor, especially in the far areas; they cannot afford their children’s education. Many children have to drop from school. Project Hope which started on October 30, 1989 aims to solve this problem so that every child of school age can receive regular education. Project Hope mainly depends on the contributions of the urban people and overseas Chinese who care about the development of China’s education. The contributed money will be used to help the children who cannot afford the education. By now, only a small part of the children benefit(受益) from it.
Project Hope is a good way to promote the education in the rural areas, but 5
it isn’t enough. 100 Yuan will help such a child finish his primary (小学的)education. So I suggest that all the people pay more attention to the problem and do much more to help raise the educational level of the country.
