1. Traffic problems: Cars park on sidewalks. Bus drivers drive so fast that they make people who are trying
to cross the street .
2. Queue jumping: At the post office, or even at McDonald’s, people push to the of the line instead
3. Bumping: Too many people are onto buses and trains. This makes people feel terrible, and it is
not safe, either. On a bus in North America, people try to make themselves and they will say ―Excuse me‖ or ―Sorry‖ if they knock into someone. In China, people make themselves bigger with ―Sorry‖ or ―Excuse me‖.
4. Lettering: I notice this everywhere. Some people throw rubbish onto the ground even there is a
rubbish bin right next to them.
Most Chinese people are just as with these kinds of things as I am. And, certainly, the government has known the problems and is trying to do something about them.

Communication is a problem for parents and children of all with your parents, don’t worry about it. Here are some advice for you to bridge the generation gap(消除代
Don’t argue with your parents. Don’t get to your parents when you are angry. Your parents probably won’t consider your ideas if you are shouting at them. And you can’t express well if you are angry. Go someplace to cool off. Make sure you understand why you are unhappy. Then think about what you want to to your parents. If you don’t think you can speak to them at the moment, try writing a letter.
Try to reach a compromise (和解). Perhaps you and your parents disagree on something. You can keep your disagreement and try your best to accept other. Michael’s mother didn’t agree with him about a motorcycle. They argued over it. But they finally came to a compromise. Michael bought the motorcycle, but only drove it on days.
Of course, your parents might refuse to compromise on something. In these situations, it is especially important to show love and respect to them. Showing respect will keep your relationship strong.
Talk about your values. The values of your parents are probably different from of your own. Tell your parents you care about and why. Understanding your values might help them see your purposes in life.
A good relationship with your parents can make you a better and person. It is worth having a try!

young millionaires when they opened a chain of American-style coffee shops in the U.K. One evening, in a Thai restaurant, Sahar told Bobby she wished she could buy American-style coffee in London. Bobby suggested they start their own coffee shop. Sahar fell in love with the idea.
Doing the Research: Back in London, she spent a whole day on the London subway, getting the train at different stations to taste the coffee. ―It was terrible, and I knew there was a gap in the market.‖ In November 1995, they opened their 316431 Coffee Republic shop in central London.
Making it work: The first British people were not to the names of American coffees, like latte and macchiato. But successful was their dream and they were not going to give up. Today, there are over 100 Coffee Republic
shops all over the country and the company has revenues(收入) of ￡30 million a year.
Advice for others: Sahar has now written a best-selling book about their experience, called your dream."

In the past, when we needed something, we went to a place, bought it, and then Some people spent much time on streets and looking at all the shopping windows. At last, they carried a lot of things home or had none of them. They got very tired after for so long.
Now, you have another way easier to do — TV shopping. Just turn on the TV, switch (转换)to
the shopping channel, get a Coke for and the only thing you have to do is to sit comfortably and
watch TV. You don’t need to worry it’s cold or hot outside, whether you get a friend to go with you, whether you have enough money with you. After you order the products you see on TV, they will be to your house within only a few days. What if you don’t like the things you’ve bought? Don’t worry! You can just give them back. More importantly, you pay for that.
TV shopping is now the most common and way for shopping. Try it next time when you need
to buy something.

1. Evenings with yourself. Try to save certain weeknights just for you. If others ask you to do something exercise.
2. Monthly treat. Schedule a treat for yourself once a month. Maybe you can go to see a movie, have a haircut, play golf whatever treat you’re always thinking about but seldom get to.
3. Book tickets earlier. Sports, theater, concerts or any other event you would plans with a friend later. Having the tickets in hand will force you to make it happen!
4. Join a group. Here are some ideas of groups that can allow you some time from work and study: singing group, book club, biking/walking/running/etc clubs, ski club, etc. What are you in? Look up a club in your area today and join! If you can’t find a club, consider starting one by yourself!
5. Exercise. For people it can be difficult to make time for this. All you have to do is decide today and then make it a reality tomorrow. A new habit is started with just one step. Take that first step tomorrow. Walk for 20 in the morning. And then build on that success daily.
