So many of us hold on to little complaints that may have come from an argument，a misunderstanding ，the way we were raised，or some other painful event. Stubbornly，we wait for someone else to reach out to us — believing this is the only way we can forgive or rekindle a friendship or family relationship.
A friend of mine，recently told me that she hadn't spoken to her son in almost three years. She said that she and her son had had a disagreement about his wife and that she would't speak to him again unless he called first. When I suggested that she be the one to reach out，she said，“ I can't do that. He’s the one who should apologize. ” After a little gentle encouragement，however，she did de¬cide to be the first one to reach out. To her amazement，her son was grateful for her willingn ess to call and offered an apology of his own. As is usually the case，when someone takes the chance and rea¬ches out，everyone wins.
Whenever we hold on to our anger，we turn“ small stuff”问题）” into really “ big stuff” in our minds. We start to believe that our positions are more important than our happiness. They are not. If you want to be a more peaceful person you must understand that being right is almost never more im-portant than allowing yourself to be happy. The way to be happy is to let go，and reach out. Let other people be right. This doesn't mean that you 're wrong. Everything will be fine. You'll experience the peace of letting go，as well as the joy of letting others be right.
You'11 also notice that，as you reach out and let others be “right”，they will become less defen¬sive and more loving toward you. They might even reach back. But，if for some reason they don't， that's okay too. You '11 have the inner satisfaction of knowing that you have done your part to create a more loving world，and certainly you'11 be more peaceful yourself.

Cursive (手写体)is about to become extinct. Do we raise the red flag? To teach or not to teach cursive is the question that several state education departments are struggling with.
Before you read this write-up $ do a simple exercise. Pick a pen and paper and start writing in cursive. Yes，that fancy handwriting that you learned in grade school. You may not have forgotten the good times you had while writing loopy Ps and Gs as well as curly Ms and Ns. However，the chances are you won't be able to write it as excellently as you used to. Some people are good at making the perfect loops and curls，while some are bad. I am still terrible at it.
Cursive is hardly used by kids anymore as even adults don 't write in this style，unless they are using it for their s ignature. Learning this handwriting was a usual practice in school for several dec¬ades. However， in 2011， the Indiana Dep artment of Education made it optional (可选择的)for schools to teach cursive writing to the students. In fact，there were 46 more states who have done the
same.There are some who believe that it is high time for cursive to retire from school curriculum. After all，if we don ’ t leave the past behind，we cannot make way for new things. If you walk into any classroom，you would find children using keyboards to communicate in written form. On the other hand，fans of this cursive insist on its usefulness. They remind us that if we stop teaching and learn¬ing cursive in schools，very soon most of our historical documents will become hard to us.
Where do we stand on this subject? Is it the right time to erase an almost forgotten handwriting and live in the keyboarding world? Or can we do both without compromising (妥协)on our school curriculum? Let me know your thoughts on this matter by leaving a comment in the section below.

Dear Tom，How I miss you! I'd like to introduce the layout of my school to you.
While I will explain a bit about the science of stress and relaxation a little later r simple way to think about it is that our body 's stress response works like a car alarm. keep us safe by warning us of the presence of danger in our immediate environment.
But instead of warning us with a loud and annoying sound，our body alarm system lets us know that something is wrong by creating changes in our neurochemistry (神经化学）.If you've ever expe¬rienced pain in your stomach，periods of extreme anger，inability to focus or even insomnia (失眠），
chances are your body was paying the price in those moments for the brain chemistry of stress.
So if it's so uncomfortable，why not just get rid of stress altogether?
This is not only impractical，it would be dangerous. Let's go back to the metaphor (比喻说法） of the car alarm. If the alarm is turned off altogether，the car is exposed to continual danger without there being any way of your knowing about it until it is too late. It would be like walking through the jungle without any fear signal in the presence of a poisonous snake or other dangerous animals — while it might feel “nice” to be so relaxed，your body actually needs the stress response not only to remind you of danger but also to offer extra adrenaline (肾上腺素) for your heart and extra blood and oxygen for your arms and legs.
However，if the car alarm goes off at any time，someone just looks at the car with a bit of an atti- tude，and it becomes equally useless. Not only do we stop paying attention to it，but it begins to drive us and everyone around us becomes a little bit crazy. In the case of our bodies，walking around in a constant state of alarm also has some pretty alarming health consequences，which we will explore in greater depth in the next chapter.
25.Our body's stress response is compared to a car alarm in that .
A.they work all the time
B. they both give a signal
C.they work in the same way
D. they both produce a sound
26.When our body alarm system works， .
A.we feel calm
B.we feel excited
C.some changes happen in our brain
D. some changes happen in our heart
27. What would happen if stress were got rid of completely?
A. We'11 be free of worries.
B. We'11 achieve a sense of safety.
C. We'11 reach a perfect state of mind.
D. We'11 fail to realize the possible danger.
28. What's the purpose of giving the example of walking through the Jungle in Paragraph 4 ?
A. To show the harm of stress.
B. To show the effect of stress.
C. To explain the function of stress response.
D. To explain the necessity of stress response.

I loved working with my dad，but I hated a summer job he gave me. He owned a small 41 in Bank Street. In his shop，the most recently 42 person got the worst job，and the boss 'son was also 43 .
I didn 't want to spend hours 44 the frost on the ceiling of the walk-in freezer，and it was the Saturday afternoon ’ s job that I hated most. We recei ved fresh 45 every day. Chicken sat in wooden boxes and was 46 with crushed ice. During the week，the ice and the blood of the chick¬en slowly leaked into the container 47 the chicken，creating its bloody smell.
There was only one 48 to get rid of the blood and wash the container ： hold my 49 and carefully slide the container from under the chicken， as I tried not to 50 the contents over my clothes，and then 51 into the drain (下水道).
Soon， students who have cut lawns， painted houses， worked in offices， 52 maybe even others will
53 to school. Some will have great memories 54 others will come back with 55 ones.
Looking back ,I think my father could have 56 me from my weekly hell. However，my dad， who 'd dropped out of school to help support his family after his father died，was a teacher for me 57 . He knew treating me 58 from his other employees would be an unfair thing. Most im¬ portantl y ，he taught me to 59 those who do the ha rd and 60 tasks in life.
For the next six summers， I returned not as the boss'son， but as one of other guys， and I cleaned the dirty container every Saturday afernoon.

Dear Mandy， I'm not doing well in my lessons at school，especial in maths. My dad says I must try hard because he wants me go to university. He thinks I'm lazy，but it's not true. I work really hard，often study late into the night! I've tried to talk to my mother，but she always said I have to work as hard like my brother does.My brother doesn't study very hard，and he always gets excellent grades. It's not fair!The only thing I like it is art. My teacher says I'm the best student she's had for year. When I told my dad，all he said was，“ You mustn 't waste your time in art. You must focus your mind on your lessons! ”I'm feeling quite puzzling as to what to do now. Would you please help meout? Thanks a lot!
