No one is glad to hear that his body has to be cut open by a surgeon（外科医生） and part of it taken out．Today，however，we needn't worry about feeling pain during the operation．The sick person falls into a kind of sleep，and when he awakes， the operation is finished．But these happy conditions are fairly new．It is not many years since a man who had to have operation felt all its pain．
Long ago，operation had usually to be done while the sick man could feel everything．The sick man had to be held down on a table by force while the doctors did their best for him.

“The more you learn, the more you earn,” said the pop singer Cyndi Lauper as she accepted her high school diploma(证书) , at the age of 35 ! Although Cyndi made it without a high school degree, most people don't. In the USA today, about 75% of jobs need some education or technical training further than high school. The lowest wage earners in the USA are those without high school degrees; college graduates(毕业生) outearn those without a college education. People with master's degrees（硕士学位）outearn those with only a bachelor (学士学位); and the highest incomes of all are earned by people with advanced professional or academic degrees. These generalizations explain why most of young Americans go to college. However, despite the averages, more diplomas don't always mean more money. Many skilled blue-collar workers, salespeople, business executives, and entrepreneurs outearn college professors and scientific researchers. And great athletes and entertainers outearn everyone else!

As soon as he could sit up, he worked on his stamp collection, began to write a history of the United States and a book about John Paul Jones—a navy hero. He was also ready to try anything that might help him to get well.
A member of his family tells the following: Roosevelt got a great deal of physical exercise later simply by crawling(爬) around on the floor.

Joker found one of the biggest diamonds in the world in his own back yard. He sold the stone to a diamond dealer for over three hundred thousand dollars. In New York, the diamond was resold. This 5
time for almost eight hundred thousand dollars. The true value of a diamond is never known until it has been cut. Once cut successfully, its value can increase a thousand times. It’s easy to understand why the owner of the Joker diamond went to the best diamond cutter he knew, Kaplan. The cutter studied the diamond for twelve whole months.
When he felt he was ready to start work, he discovered a flaw (瑕疵). He had to begin with his calculations (计算) all over again, or he might have made the stone useless. Six more months passed, and Kaplan finally said to the owner, “I am ready to start my work. There will be one excellent diamond that will be comparable to any in the world, plus eleven small diamonds of first-class quality.” Kaplan waited a few more days until he felt he was in the best physical and mental (精神的) condition possible. He picked up his tools and held his breath as he made the first blow. The diamond split (切开) exactly as he promised.

 Alice Munro wins the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature, becoming the first Canadian woman to take the award since it was founded in 1901.
 Munro,82, only the 13th woman given the award, was praised by the Swedish Academy during the Nobel announcement in Stockholm as the "master of the contemporary short story. " "We're not saying just that she can say a lot in just 20 pages-more than an average novel writer can-but also that she can cover ground. She can have a single short story that covers decades, and it works, " said Peter England, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy.
[ 3] Munro said she always viewed her chances of winning the Nobel as " one of those pipe dreams" that "might happen, but it probably wouldn't. " Munro's daughter woke her up to tell
her the news. "It just seems impossible. A splendid thing to happen…More than I can say," she said, overcome（克服）with emotion. " My stories have gotten around quite remarkably for short stories. I would really hope that this would make people see the short story as an important art, not something you play around with until you got a novel written. "

She became a full-time housewife and mother of their children. She then moved to Victoria with her first husband and later returned to Ontario following their divorce. She married Fremlin in 1976.
 Three years ago, in an interview at Toronto's International Festival of Authors, Munro said she had battled cancer, but did not provide specifics.
