Many Chinese women want to have white skin like yours. , there are many beauty products (美容产品) in the shops to make skin whiter and a lot of money is spent on them.”
It just shows that we are never happy with what we have. The grass is much on the other side.

“I hate school, and I’m not going back!” Have you ever had that thought?
Lots of kids have had. Usually this feeling doesn’t last long. But what if you feel this way too much?
If you are stressed out, you might have a hard time making a decision. In the morning, you can’t decide what
to eat, what to wear, or what to take for lunch.
Sometimes it’s a problem with your classes and schoolwork. Maybe the work is too easy and you get bored. Or maybe the work is too hard, or you don’t feel as clever as the other kids.
Reading may be difficult for you, but you are asked to do a lot of it.

When you know why you don’t like school, you can start taking steps to make things better. It’s a good idea to talk to someone about your problems at school. Your mom, dad, friends, teachers, or even classmates will be able to help you.
Another good idea is to write down your feeling about school. For instance, keep a diary or just write in a notebook. It’s a great way to let out emotion (情感) that may be stuck inside you. And you don’t have to share what you have written with others.
The next time you find yourself disliking school, this will also help you:
Make a list of everything you dislike or enjoy—even there is only one thing. See what you can change on “don’t like” list.

Visitors to the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai will be able to go sightseeing in super cool cars with no drivers. Shanghai city officials said recently.
When a prototype (样品) of the six-seat car was shown to the public, it interested many people. “The car will help visitors feel what high technology is and help them enjoy a tour of the World Expo site,” said a professor at Tongji University. He was —— 4.5 metres long, 1.7 metres wide and 1.6 metres tall —— runs along a white line. The car costs around 300,000 yuan to build and can reach a top speed of 50,000 metres an hour.
According to the researchers, visitors will be able to drive the car anywhere in the World Expo site by pressing a button. If they want to get off or stop the car, all they need to do is just press the button again.
“People can rent (租) one of these cars for a whole day or just take a ride in it from one place to another,” the
professor said. Around 400 to 500 of these cars will be made for the Expo in 2010. The cars will have radar to help them get around. They will mainly use solar batteries and
Lithium (锂) batteries. As they have no need for drivers and oil, these cars will help save energy and human labour and cause no pollution to the environment!

When I was a kid, I always used to wonder how in the world my father worked outside in the winter without a coat. It could be minus 20 degrees centigrade and there’d be Dad, removing snow, or perhaps chopping some wood --- his coat thrown aside--- wearing a shirt, a cap, and a pair of gloves.
“Aren’t you cold, Dad?” I’d ask. “No,” Dad would reply. “I’m not cold--- working too hard to be cold.” Many times I wondered whether my father was an extremely tough man, or whether he was foolish.
One time when I was quite young, perhaps five or so, I went ice fishing with Dad. It was a bright, clear day—and badly cold.
After we’d been out on the ice for a little while, my feet started getting cold.
“Daddy, my feet are cold.” I said.
“Yeah, it’s cold out here today,” he replied.
“Tell you what,” he said. “Walk around. Make some circles in the snow. See how many different patterns you can make. That will get your feet warm.”
Now, I was just a little girl at the time but I remember thinking, “How in the world will walking around in the snow make my feet warm? Dad must be out of mind.
But he was my father, after all. I made circles in the snow. I made squares. Pretty soon I was having so much fun making patterns in the snow. I forgot about my feet being cold.
Now, all these years later, I know, too, from personal experience how my father was able to take his coat off and work outside in the winter wearing just a shirt, a cap and gloves. Because I do it, too. “Aren’t you cold?” my husband asked one winter day. “No,” I replied. “I’m not cold—working too hard to be cold.”
I hope my husband has decided I’m both tough and smart. But I guess quite a bit of the time he thinks I’m foolish.
Wherever Dad is in that great big farm in the sky—I’m sure he can’t help but smile whenever I take my coat off while I’m working outside in the winter.

Robot revolution (革命)
The day that a robot wakes you up, cleans your room and walks your dog might still be a few years off. Engineers are saying that robots are going to make the leap from the factory floor to your family room.
Companies like Sony and General Electric are working on designs for small robots. Products like the Roomba, a robot that can clean floors, are flying off the shelves. On the cover of a recent Scientific American magazine, Bill Gates predicted the “Dawn of the Age of Robots”.
What’s behind this new times? It’s a matter of technology in some ways. Devices (装置) that can recognize（识别）a human voice and reply to him have been developed. There are now a few different ways for robots to move around. They can walk or ride on wheels. They are being made smaller and smaller. They are also becoming more and more powerful.
To be sure, robots that walk on two legs and talk like people are still too complex (复杂) for our present engineering abilities. Today’s robot revolution is to make them for everyday use. Robots will do the housework such as cleaning or gardening, or just help you have more fun on the basketball court.
What makes a robot different from an ordinary cleaning machine is not the computer chips (芯片). Nowadays even your microwave has a computer chip. It is the ability to sense and make changes to the B. show how her father cared about her D. explain why her father loved her so much
environment in real time.
For example, a floor-cleaning robot should be able to sense your scared cat and move out of the way. Today’s computing ability is, for the first time, able to make machines that could “think”, at least in certain limited ways.
Travel sounds like a comfortable word because it means we may stop at nothing and go somewhere beautiful during it. If you know the meanings of the letters of travel, you will become relaxed.
T stands for “trust (信任)”. A man should trust himself. Friends should trust each other. trust. It makes our journey nice.
R means “respect (尊重)”. You should respect yourself, others and things.
A means “affection”. It usually has loving and friendship．we go, we shouldn’t give up affection. Or we can’t a place.
V means “vulnerability (脆弱) ”. It tells us we have some vulnerability in our hear E means “expectation”. If you lose expectation, the travel must be difficult. We have expectation for ever. We place of life.
L means “laughter”. Laughter is a simple action on the mouth. But it ishouldn’t the laughter because laughter is the heart language that every traveler has.
We hope you can shine during your only life journey. There is not too much regret(后悔).

This spring, most parts in the southwest of China are short of water. It is difficult for more than 20,000,000 people to drink water. The people there don’t have enough clean drinking water to drink because it hasn’t rained for a long time. What’s worse, a great number of wild animals and plants die because of lack of water. I am so shocked that I hope people around the world can save water and protect our environment. We should take action to prevent natural disaster. Now so many people in Yunnan and some other provinces are in difficult. I think we should try our best to help them. We can donate bottles of drinking water to them. We can also raise money for them to help them dig more wells. In a word, let’s stretch our helping hands to help those in need.
