Do you know why different animals or pests （昆虫） have their special colors? Colors in them seem to be used mainly to protect themselves. Some birds like eating locusts （蝗虫）, but birds cannot easily catch them. Why? It is because locusts change their colors together with the change of the colors of crops（庄稼）. When crops are green, locusts look green. But as the harvest time comes, locusts change to the same brown color as crops have. Some other pests with different colors from plants are easily found and eaten by others. So they have to hide themselves for lives and appear only at night.
If you study the animal life, you’ll find the main use of coloring is to protect themselves. Bears, lions and other animals move quietly through forests. They cannot be easily seen by hunters （猎人）. This is because they have the colors much like the trees.
Have you ever noticed an even stranger act? A kind of fish in the sea can send out a kind of very black liquid （液体）when it faces danger. While the liquid spreads over （散开）, its enemies （敌人）cannot find it. And it immediately swims away. So it has lived up to now though it is not strong at all.

My version(视力) is getting worse. I can’t even see what is five feet away from me without glasses. ①我拒绝戴眼镜，though I know I need to. I’m afraid they will make me look ugly. Besides, I can do well without them. These were my thoughts two years ago, when I was in the sixth grade. An embarrassing experience taught me that what I was thinking was wrong.
②School has been out for two months. I was going to junior high school soon, where I was sure that looks are everything. So the question still remained there. Should I, Or should I not, wear glasses? The question was still in my mind when my family and I attended a wedding(婚礼) late in the summer.
During the wedding, I drank too much juice. Soon after it ended, I walked quickly to the bathroom. Since it was an emergency(紧急) and I couldn’t clearly see which door was ③marked boys. I just opened the nearest door and entered the restroom.
Unluckily, I had entered the wrong restroom. But I didn’t know this until I heard a scream(尖叫声) coming from the entrance when I was washing my hands .
After that, I decided to wear the ugly-looking glasses. I didn’t really ④care about what people thought of me any more, because I never wanted to enter the wrong bathroom again.
On the first day of seventh grade, ⑤my friends didn’t make fun of
me. Instead they gave me compliments. They thought the glasses
made me look more cute and more natural.
So if you know something is right, just do it. ⑥It doesn’t matter
what others think of you. All that matters is what you think of yourself
—and that you can see where you are going!

The time may be 10 a．m．in Beijing and 2 a．m．in New York．It is
set on the same time? Greenwich Mean Time．This is because in l884,
many nations met to decide how to prevent the confusion（混乱）
made by almost every town having its own time． Such a time rule
was devised（设计）by Sir Sanford Fleming（1827-1915）．He was an
engineer who lived in Canada．He held a meeting in 1884 to discuss
the time problem．He suggested that there should be 24 meridians
（子午线）dividing the world into 24 time zones（时区）．The zero
meridian would pass through the village of Greenwich near
London．The time at Greenwich would be called Greenwich Mean
Time，and at each of the 24 meridian lines，the time would go forward
or backwards by one hour．
Twenty-seven nations agreed to this suggestion，and since then GMT
has been the centre of time-keeping for all nations．Most nations have
only one time zone，however，large nations such as the USA and
Australia are divided into several time zones．
31．What time is it in New York when it is 10 a．m．in Beijing?
32．Who devised Greenwich Mean Time?
33．When was the meeting held to discuss the time problem?
34．How many nations agreed to Greenwich Mean Time?

Note-taking is a skill that can help you do well in all your schoolwork. It can make you confident when you are studying. But unluckily, most students
don't know how to take notes. If your teacher writes notes on the blackboard, that's great. You can copy them or write down the most important facts of all in class. Different teachers do things differently.
For example, some teachers may focus on (关注) lots of dates and facts in class,but they only write the important ones on the blackboard.
Other teachers may not write anything down, but they may repeat them.
Don't try to write down every word in class, or you might miss some important points. Some students really learn better with the help of these notes. Don't be afraid to ask your teacher to repeat what you're missed. If your teacher speaks too fast and you can't follow what he is saying, you can ask him after class. Comparing (对比) your notes with your classmates' can be good for your learning. It can also help you and your classmates correct some mistakes. Note-taking also needs organization. Keep notes for each subject in one place, so that you can find everything easily when a test
comes. Good note-taking takes time. If you decide to recopy your notes every evening, you'll surely have less time to watch TV. But you'll save time in the coming test.
1. Note-taking can help you _______ all your schoolwork and _______ when you are studying.
2. Different teachers do things differently. Some of them like to tell their students many dates and facts but they only _______ on the blackboard; others may repeat them instead of _______.
3. If you miss some important points or can't follow your teacher in class, don't _______ to ask him or just compare your notes with _______.
