7.Thanks to Mr. Wang and the passengers, the man was saved by the doctors in time. "It's sad that many people don't want to help (1)      (other) because they don't want (2)      (some) trouble," says one passenger. But the driver didn't think about (3)       (him). He only thought about saving a life.
8.I think it is important for children to learn how to do chores and help their (1)       (parent) with housework. It's not enough to just get good grades at school. Children these days depend (2)       their parents too much. They are always asking, "Could you get this for me?"or "Could you help me with that?"Doing chores helps to develop children's independence and teaches them how (3)      (look) after themselves.
9.  A lot of people have one problem with books — they buy them and then never start reading them.
  To (1)       this problem, a foreign publisher (出版商) called Eterna Cadencia came up with a very clever idea:it printed (印刷) the words of the books in disappearing ink (墨水):the text of the book vanishes (消失) two months after the special package (包装) of the book is opened, so that encouraging buyers to start reading it (2)       it goes away. They call this "the book that can't wait. "The book was really a (3)      . The publisher just sold out the whole first edition(版)at a/an (4)       the day it was printed, and received "thousands of requests" for more copies of the book. It also got a lot of news reports. As a result, the publisher is planning to publish (5)       kinds of books in disappearing ink.
  In some ways, the idea is pretty clever. (6)      , we still have some suggestions. First, the book should start the vanishing process (过程) after the reader first opens the book. If the vanishing ink books become (7)       in the future, readers will need to read them one at a time. They don't want their books to vanish before they read the first page. Second, we have to find a better use of the vanished books later. It's a good idea if they can be (8)      . Or maybe we can use them as notebooks. Only in that way, can it be more environmentally friendly to have such interesting books.

11.  A teacher in New York decided to honor (奖励) her students by telling them the difference they each made. First, she thanked each of them how they made a difference to her and the class. Then she gave each student three blue ribbons (丝巾)with gold letters reading. "Who I Am Makes a Difference" The students went out to find somebody to honor. The person would keep a ribbon and give the extra (额外的) ones to a third person to keep it going.
  One boy went to a manager in a nearby company and honored him for helping him with his career (职业) planning. Later that day, the manager went in to see his boss. He told him that he deeply admired (欣赏) him for being a creative talent. He gave the surprised boss the last extra ribbon and asked him to find somebody else to honor.
  That night the boss went home to his 14-year-old son. He told the boy what had happened and said, "I want to honor you, son. My days are really busy and when I come home I don't pay a lot of attention to you. Sometimes I shout at you for not getting good enough grades in school and for your bedroom being a mess, but somehow tonight, I just want to let you know that you do make a difference to me. Besides your mother, you are the most important person in my life. You're a great kid and I love you!"
  Hearing this, the boy started to cry and couldn't stop. He looked up at his father and said through his tears, "I was planning on leaving home tomorrow, Dad, because I didn't think you loved me. Now I don't need to."
12.  A zero-waste life is a lifestyle that hardly creates any rubbish. So, a zero-waste store is about providing a kind of everyday and pleasant looking zero-waste products (产品) to help people start on a zero﹣waste life journey.
  "Zero waste" or "danshari" was first suggested by a French woman called Bea Johnson. Her idea is:live a life and try not to create any rubbish;use different kinds of ways to save the environment such as stopping the use of one﹣off objects;giving unwanted things to others or giving them away to organizations like the Red Cross.
  Yu Yuan, 27, is deeply interested in this idea. She and her boyfriend have lived in Beijing for many years. And earlier she used l0 buy things without thinking about them carefully until she saw a video about "zero waste", in which a family of four put the rubbish they produced every year in a jar. After watching the video, Yu wanted to experience this zero-waste lifestyle with her boy friend.
  A zero-waste life follows the 6 R rule — Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle and Rot. Over August — October when Yu followed the rule of zero waste 6 R, she and her boyfriend Joe Harvey both produced only two cans of rubbish.
  Now, the couple have opened a small shop in Beijing where they use wood products to take the place of plastic ones and cloth bags printed with environmentally friendly logos (环保标志). Most products sold in the store can be reused. The store also has second-hand books and CDs DVDs with ideas to make the best of the used things.
  "Those who once experienced the non-waste lifestyle have slowly changed their ideas." says Yu, "The zero-waste lifestyle is not for ascetics (苦行僧). It is just around us at our finger-tips." Yu expects some of her friends to join her on the road to zero waste.
13.  How many people have I met who have told me about the book they have been planning to write but have never yet found the time?Far too many.
  This is life, all right, but we do treat it like a rehearsal and, unhappily, we do miss so many of its best moments.
  We take jobs to stay alive and provide homes for our families, always making ourselves believe that this style or life is only a temporary (暂时的) state or affairs along the road to what we really want to do. Then, at 60 or 65, we are suddenly presented with a clock and several grandchildren and we look back and realize that all those years waiting for Real Life to come along were in fact real life.
  In America they have a saying much laughed at by the English "Have a nice day". They speak slowly and seriously in their shops, hotels and sandwich bars. I think it is a wonderful phrase, reminding us, in effect, to enjoy the moment:to value this very day.
  How often do we say to ourselves, "I'll take up horse-riding (or golf, or sailing) as soon as I get a higher position", only to do none of those things when I do get the higher position.
  When I first became a reporter, I knew a man who gave up a very well-paid respectable job at the Daily Telegraph to go and work for a small weekly newspaper. At the time I was surprised by what appeared to me to be his completely abnormal (反常的) mental state. How could anyone turn his back on Fleet Street in central London for a small local area?I wanted to know.
  Now I am a little older and possibly wiser. I see the sense in it In Fleet Street the man was under continual pressure. He lived in an unattractive London suburb and he spent much of his life sitting on Southern Region trains.
14.  It's not easy being a teenager and it is not easy being the parent of a teenager. You can make your child feel angry, hut, or misunderstood by what you say without realizing (意识到) it yourself. It is important to give your child the space he needs to grow while letting him know that you'll always be there for him when he needs you. So here's some advice for you.
  First, expect a lot from your child, just not everything. Second, keep everything else open to discussion (讨论) but not for health and safety problems like drug use and careless driving. Third, if your child is unwilling to talk about something, don't ask him to tell you what's on his mind. Instead, let him try to solve (解决) things by himself. At the same time, tell him that you're always there for him to ask for advice or help. Fourth, show respect for your teenager's privacy (隐私). Never read his mails or listen to his personal talks.
  What's more, always ask your child to follow the family rules. For example, teach your teenager that the family phone is for the whole family If your child talks on the family telephone for too long, tell him he can talk for 15 minutes, but then he must stay off the phone for at least 15 minutes. This not only frees up the line so that other family members can make and get calls, but teaches your teenager moderation(节制). Or you can allow your teenager to have his own phone, but he can pay for it with his own pocket money or a part-time job.
