The tradition of birthday parties started a long time ago. There are some traditions that you can find almost anywhere, anytime, such as sending birthday cards, blowing out the candles on a birthday cake and singing the ?Happy Birthday? song. Others are only found for certain ages and in certain countries. In China, on a child?s second birthday, family members put many things on the floor around the child. According to Chinese tradition, the first thing that the child picks up tells you what profession the child will choose later in life. For Japanese children, the third, fifth and seventh birthdays are especially important. At this age, there is a special celebration Shichi-Go-San (seven, five, three in Japanese) when children go to the temple wearing a new
party for their kimono (和服). The priest (僧侣) gives them special sweets, and the parents usually organize a
friends in their home. In Argentina, Mexico and several other Latin American countries, girls have a special birthday celebration when they reach the age of fifteen. After a special ceremony (仪式), the girls dance a waltz with their father and other boys. Eighteen is the traditional ?coming of age?— the age when (in many countries) you have the right to vote (选举), join the army and (in Britain) drink alcohol or buy a house. In many English-speaking countries, a twenty-first birthday cake often has a key on top, or the cake itself is sometimes in the shape of a key. The key means that the young person is now old enough to leave and enter the family home at any time they want to!

You may have known several kinds of police, traffic police, and street police. But have you ever heard of energy-saving(节能) policemen ?A group of 22 of these new policemen went to work last week in Beijing. They go around the city to see the use of energy in hotels, office buildings, shopping centers and other public places. One of their aims is to make sure that these sites have set their air conditioning(空调) no cooler than 26 ℃.They also set up a special phone line so that people can tell them which buildings fail to follow the rule. “If everyone sets their air conditioning at 26 ℃, Beijing will save 400 million kilowatt-hours (千瓦时)of electricity in one summer. That?s one-third of all the usage of the city in the season,” said a TV advertisement. Other Chinese cities, like Wuhan in Hubei Province and Yangzhou in Jiangsu Province, are going to follow Beijing?s steps in setting up a similar police team. As one of the fastest developing countries, China is using a lot of energy. This has a great effect on the country?s environment and limited energy. From 1986 to 2005, the country experienced 20 warm winters continuously. Numbers show that Chinese cities have to spend billion of yuan solving(解决) environmental problems every year. At the beginning of this month, China made its first action plan to fight pollution. It aims to reduce energy usage by 20％ and increase renewable energy up to 10％ from 7％ by 2010.To introduce the public to a green life, last week Beijing held a show on energy-saving technology and productions. Environment-friendly machines, such as a vending machine that helps collect used bottles, have attracted lots of attention.“We want to tell people that there are certain ways to protect the environment. Each of us can find effective ways to do it in our daily lives,” said Liu Qianguang, an environmental engineer in Beijing.

Nearly 2,000 years ago, during the Han Dynasty, there was a person called Ying Chen. One day, he invited Du Xuan to his house and treated him with wine. On the wall of the room a red bow (弓). Its shadow appeared in Du Xuan?s cup. Du Xuan took the shadow for a snake. He was his eyes closed.
When he was back at home he felt so sick that he could eat and drink any more. He sent for the doctor and took some him about the snake in the wine. Chen returned home, thought hard, the bow on the wall caught his eyes. “That?s it!” he shouted. He immediately sent for Du Xuan. He seated him where he sat before and offered him a cup of wine. Du Xuan saw the snake-like shadow again. Ying Chen said, pointing at the shadow, “The ?snake? in the cup is but a shadow of the bow on the wall!” Now that Du Xuan knew it was, he felt much easier. And strange enough, his illness disappeared the next moment.

Many famous people had dreams when they were young. They often worked hard to make their dreams come true. When I was only 13 years old, I first thought about what I should do in the future. I used to dream about being a basketball player, a soccer player, or a baseball player. However, I gave up these dreams because I was too short. Then I thought about going to music, so I bought a violin. But I couldn?t play it very well. Then I had to give up my dream again. After that I thought about being a reporter and I worked really hard at it. At the age of 25, my dream came true and I became a reporter.
Finally, I learned that I should never give up and I must work hard.
