It’s interesting that technology often works as a servant for us, yet frequently we become a servant to it.E-mail is a useful tool but many feel controlled by this new tool. The average business person is getting about 80 e-mails per day and many feel that about 80% of the messages in their “Inbox” are of little or no value. So, I have four suggestions to help you to become better at “Erasing E-mail”.

(1)Get off the lists. The best way to deal with a problem is to never have it. If you are receiving a lot of unwanted e-mails, ask to be removed from the various lists. This would include your inclusion in unwanted lists.

(2)Unlistd address”. Just as you keep an “unlisted” telephone number that you share only with those whom you want to have direct access to, you might want to get a separate e-mail address only for the important communications you wish to receive.

(3)Check it once or twice per day. Many I speak with are becoming chained to their email server, monitoring incoming email continuously. Maybe this is because e-mail creates its own sense of urgency, but most of the communications are not all that urgent. I respond to them a couple of times per day.

(4)Deal with it. As you open each e-mail, do one of the following:

a. If it requires a quick response, respond to it and delete it.

b. If it requires a response but is not the best use of your time, try to find someone else to do it.

c. If it is going to take any serious amount of time to respond, schedule it for action in your Day Planner and

then download the message, save it, or print it out for future action.

I personally receive about 250 e-mails per day and by practicing the suggestions above, I can handle that

volume in about an hour, taking advantage of this fantastic tool but not being controlled by it to make sure I’m doing more important tasks in my day.

1. For the important communications, the writer suggests that you ( )

Ahave a direct access for them

Bhave several e-mail servers for them

Cget a separate e-mail address for them

Dget an unlisted phone number for them

2. To avoid being chained by the coming e-mails, what you can do is to ( )

Arespond urgent ones only

Breply to all of them at the same time

Chandle them a couple of times daily

Dkeep replying to e-mails all day long

3. To deal with an e-mail you get, you can do the following EXCEPT ( )

Aresponding right away if it’s urgent

Bdownloading every e-mail before you reply

Cscheduling it for later reply if it takes much time

Dasking someone else to reply to it if it’s not at your convenience

For almost two months Dominic York, a 23-year-old hairdresser, wandered about hospitals at night, wearing a white coat and pretending he was a doctor. Yesterday he proudly claimed in court that despite his complete lack of medical experience or qualifications, he had saved several people’s lives. He had even been allowed to assist a surgeon during an emergency operation on a patient who was about to die on something she had swallowed.

“I watched one of those TV dramas about a hospital and suddenly I felt like playing one of the roles myself. So I put on a white jacket and a stethoscope(听诊器) and walked around one of the biggest hospitals in London. At first I just watched. Once you learn how doctors talk to patients, nurses and other doctors, it’s easy to take people in,” he said. One of the patients he treated was Laura Kennan. She had been knocked down by a car and fainted. When she came into hospital, York was standing over her.“He looked very professional. He told me his name was Doctor Simon. Then he gave me some sort of injection,” she said. And then he suddenly cleared off when a nurse asked who he was. She didn’t think there was anything wrong. “I would never have realized he was a fake if a policewoman hadn’t showed me his photograph a week later. When the policewoman told me who he really was, I could hardly believe my ears. Judge Raymond Adams told York that he was “shocked and horrified” that he got away with his cheating for so long, and then sentenced him to eighteen months in a special prison for criminals with mental disorders. “I can only hope that his will not lead to further problem. After all, you will have considerable opportunity to

study the behavior of the psychiatrists(精神科医生) who will look after you while you are there. If you try to persuade people that you yourself are a psychiatrist after you are set free, I shall make sure that you are given a much longer sentence,” Judge Adams warned York.

4. York was proud of the fact that ( )

Aa surgeon let him watch an operation

Bhe could perform some duties of a doctor

Che had cheated doctors for so long

Dpeople thought he could become a real doctor

5.York learned how to behave like a doctor by ( )

Awatching other doctors work

Btalking to doctors and nurses

Cgetting some training and experience

Dobserving doctors while he was a patient

6.Why was Laura Kennan in hospital? ( )

AShe had swallowed something and almost died

BShe had to have an emergency operation

CShe had been injured in a road accident

DShe had lost consciousness while driving

7.The judge’s remark implied that York would be more severely punished if he ( )

Apretended to be a psychiatrist

Btried to get away from prison

Cwas proud of what he had done

Dstudied the behavior of the psychiatrist

How I Turned to Be Optimistic I began to grow up that winter night when my parents and I were returning from my aunt’s house,and my mother said that we might soon be leaving for America.We were on the bus then.I was crying,and some people on the bus were turning around to look at me.I remember that I could not bear the thought of never hearing again the radio programs for school children to which I listened every morning. I do not remember myself crying for this reason again.In fact,I think I cried very little when I was saying goodbye to my friends and relatives.When we were leaving I thought about all the places I was going to see—the strange and magical places I had known only from books and pictures.The country I was leaving never to come back was hardly in my head then.

The four years that followed taught me the importance of optimism,but the idea did not come to me at once. For the first two years in New York I was really lost—having to study in three schools as a result of family moves. I did not quite know what I was or what I should be. Mother remarried,and things became even more complex for me. Some time passed before my stepfather and I got used to each other. I was often sad,and saw no end to “the hard times”.

My responsibilities in the family increased a lot since I knew English better than everyone else at home.I wrote letters,filled out forms,translated at interviews with immigration officers,took my grandparents to the doctor and translated there,and even discussed telephone bills with company representatives.

From my experiences I have learned one important rule:almost all common troubles eventually go away! Something good is certain to happen in the end when you do not give up,and just wait a little!I believe that my life will turn out all right,even though it will not be that easy.

CShe paid telephone bills for her family.

DShe helped her family with her English.

A university graduate described as a “respectable and intelligent” woman is seeking professional help after being convicted of (证明有……罪)shoplifting for the second time in six months.

Ana Luz, recently studying for her PhD, has been told she could end up behind bars unless she can control the desire to steal from shops.

Luz ,who lives with her partner in Fitzwilliam Road ,Cambridge ,admitted stealing clothes worth £9.95 from John Lewis in Oxford Street, London,on March 9.

Phillip Lemoyne,prosecuting(起诉),said Luz selected some clothes from a display and took them to the ladies’ toilet in the store. When she came out again she was wearing one of the skirts she had selected ,having taken off the anti-theft security alarms.

She was stopped and caught after leaving the store without paying, Mr. Lemoyne said.

He added that she was upset on her arrest and apologized for her actions.

Luz, 28, was said to have been convicted of shoplifting by Cambridge judges last October, but Morag Duff, defending, said she had never been in trouble with the police before that.

“She is ashamed and embarrassed but doesn’t really have any explanation why she did this,” Miss Duff said. “She didn’t intend to steal when she went into the store .She is at a loss to explain it. She is otherwise a very respectable and intelligent young lady. She went to her doctor and asked for advice because she wants to know if there is anything in particular that caused her to do this.” Judge David Azan fined Luz £50, and warned : “You’ve got a criminal record. If you carry on like this, you will end up in prison, which will ruin your bright future you may have.” Luz achieved a degree in design at university in her native Spain,went on to a famous university in Berlin,

Germany for her master’s degree and is now studying for a PhD at Cambridge University,UK.
