My dad loved pennies, especially those with wheat. Those were the pennies he grew up with in Iowa and he didn’t have many.

When I was a kid, Dad and I would go for walks together. We’d spy coins along the way. Whenever I picked up a penny, he'd ask, "Is it a wheat?" It always thrilled him when we found one of those special coins produced between 1909 and 1958, the year of my birth. He told me he often dreamed of finding coins. “I have that dream too!” I told him. It told him. It was our secret connection.

Dad died in 2002. One grey day, not long after his death, I was walking down Fifth Avenue and I found myself in front of the oldest church in Manhattan, which my father had been attending. I was greeted in warmly. The song was Dad's favorite, one we’d sung at his funeral.

After the service, I walked out, stepped onto the sidewalk-and there was a penny. I picked it up, and sure enough, it was a wheat, a 1944, a year my father was serving on a ship in the South Pacific. Then, wheat pennies began turning up on the sidewalks everywhere. I got most of the important years: his birth year, the war years, the year he met my mom, the year they got married. But , no 1958 penny-my year.

The next Sunday, after the service, I was walking up Fifth Avenue and spotted a penny in the middle of the street. It was a busy street, but I risked my safety and got it.

A wheat! There was my birthday.

I found 21 wheat pennies on the streets of Manhattan in the year after my father died, and I don't think that's a coincidence.

What happens inside the head of a soccer player who repeatedly heads a soccer ball? That question motivated a study of the brains of experienced players.

Researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York selected 34 adults, men and women. All of the volunteers had played soccer since childhood and now competed year-round in adult soccer leagues. Each filled out a detailed questionnaire developed especially for this study to determine how many times they had headed a soccer ball in the previous year, as well as whether they had experienced any known concussions (脑震荡) in the past.

Then the players completed computerized tests of their memory and other learning skills and had their brains scanned, using a complex new M.R.I. technique which can find structural changes in the brain that can’t be seen during most scans.

According to the data they presented, the researchers found that the players who had headed the ball more than about 1,100 times in the previous 12months showed significant loss of white matter in parts of their brains involved with memory, attention and the processing of visual information, compared with players who had headed the ball less.

This pattern of white matter loss is “similar to those seen in traumatic (外伤的) brain injury”, like that after a serious concussion, the researchers reported, even though only one of these players was reported to have ever experienced a concussion.

The players who had headed the ball about 1,100 times or more in the past year were also generally worse at recalling lists of words read to them, forgetting or fumbling the words far more often than players who had headed the ball less.

When Dawn Bonfield, the former chief executive of the Women's Engineering Society, ran a stand recently at a big military air show, she was in for a shock.

There were around 900 Brownies among the crowd and Ms Bonfield says, "I'm saying to all these girls, 'Do you know about engineering, would you like to be an engineer, have you thought about engineering?' And in the whole day... probably five or six of them said yes. Every other one said no, just straight out no."

What surprised her most, she says, is that it wasn't that these eight and nine-year-old girls didn't know what engineering was. Simply that they had already switched off. They had lost interest in engineering. "So how much work does it take to change that?" asks Ms Bonfield. "I mean it's huge."

There's no shortage of data to back up her estimation of the scale of work required. The latest figures from the Office for National Statistics show that women make up around just 8% of engineers in the UK. And this is at a time when the UK needs to produce thousands more engineers, so much so that the inventor, Sir James Dyson, is planning to open his own instituteto address the skills shortage.

Not enough female role models is well documented as a reason why girls don’t choose engineering.

The attitude of parents was also an important factor in career choices. For girls, perhaps unsurprisingly, mothers were particularly influential.

"My mum was a bit iffy about it at first because she was more like, 'Girls should do this and that and the other,' more like 'keep your posture up and be ladylike'," says middle school student Hannah. "But my dad used to build a lot of stuff and he got me into that. So after my mum saw how me and my dad interacted she said, 'Yeah, go for it' and she's kind of the one who supported me with this."


29. What is the author’s purpose in writing the text? ( )

ATo show the shortage of girls in engineering.

BTo introduce some famous girl engineers.

CTo promote the social status for engineers.

DTo give girls advice on how to select careers.

30. What does the underlined word “Brownies” in the Paragraph 2 refer to? ( )

AChocolate cakes.

BYoung girls.

CGirls with brown hair.

DStudents in brown.

31. What shocked Dawn Bonfield most? ( )

AThere were so many girls at the show.

BMany girls had run off before seeing her.

CGirls didn’t know anything about engineering.

DGirls paid no attention to engineering.

32. Why did Hannh finally choose engineering? ( )

ABecause she found a woman role model.

BBecause her mother was sure of her future.

CBecause her father had influence on her.

DBecause she wanted to meet the demand of society.

Thanksgiving in the US is a celebration of the blessings of the previous year. This time it included one of the most divisive presidential campaigns. Even now it is over, the possibility of argument has not disappeared. Here we have some tips for you to survive this Thanksgiving.

●Cover up any signal of union

It might be fine to have your Hillary bumper sticker in New York, but it isn't going to go down well in Wyoming, where 70% voted Trump. Similarly, your "I love Trump" T-shirt will probably not be popular in California, where 62% voted Hillary. _

●Practice your facial expression beforehand

They say a picture tells 1,000 words. Your face is the same. _ You need to invest some energy in making sure your true feelings are completely buried. Ten minutes in front of the mirror should be enough to perfect your neutral face. _ Well, we suggest closing them. Easy.

●Have a list of neutral topics for the dinner table

The weather is A favorite subject of the British. It is inoffensive, bland and can provide a good half-hour's chat, if done well. Everyone has an opinion on whether or not it is colder/hotter/wetter/windier than last year/10 years ago/when they were little. You can involve the whole family. _ With Clinton and Trump supporters largely split on whether climate change exists, it could inadvertently lead to politics. So it's maybe trickier for Americans than the weather-worn Brits. _ After all, the rivalry between your American football team of choice and your cousin's may have a long and vitriolic history, but it is likely to be less poisonous than the current differences in your politics.


ASports may not be a neutral subject.

BBiting your lip is simply not enough this holiday season.

CThere are hundreds of outstanding topics for Thanksgiving.

DThere is one slight downfall to this particular favorite.

EAre you one of those people whose eyes always tell the truth?

FSo we advise leaving the T-shirt at home, and covering up the stickers.

GIt would be fine, if people of different opinions would not spend Thanksgiving together.
