As I walked into the drugstore to pick up a roll of toilet paper and cat food the week of Halloween, I found myself being stared down by an oversized Rudolph doll. His eye expression aroused a swell of anxiety within me. This is not because I have an irrational fear of dolls. The red nose is a mocking reminder that for those of us who are members of dysfunctional(功能失调的)families, the most wonderful and challenging time of year is upon us. The issue isn’t that the holiday season brings a new, once-a-year, unpleasant feeling. Rather, this time of year enlarges the most complicated, sensitive area of my life: family.
Over the past several months, certain situations have left me emotionally raw when dealing with the subject of family, particularly my mom. The holiday season has never agreed well with her, physically or emotionally. Her first heart attack took place two weeks before Christmas when I was in the seventh grade. The song “Jingle Bell Rock” instantly took me back to driving to the hospital to visit her after her emergency heart operation. When I was at grade 2 at high school, we found ourselves awkwardly putting turkey into our mouths after my mom had com from a week-long stay in the hospital to recover from heart attack and a stroke. A girl of 15, due to the gift of having my mom alive and home to celebrate, my heart was contradictory that Thanksgiving.

The Alice Ferguson Foundation is a non-profit group that works to improve the environment by building relationships between people and nature. The foundation is based in the state of Maryland. It was created more than 50 years ago. It teaches people ways to protect the environment.
At the end of the year, it designs events to help children celebrate Christmas without increasing the amount of waste they create. Hanna Seligmann works for the foundation. “So let’s figure out what is in our bag of trash.” She shows adults and children how to reduce waste during the holiday gift-giving season. “You can sort it as a cardboard item or you can sort it as a plastic item.” “We encourage using things that are already in your house like newspaper, old magazines, using a gift within a gift.” Urging people to recycle is important in the Washington, D.C., area, because Potomac River, one of the most famous rivers in the country lies there.
“Over time we realized that really just doing trash cleanups was the symptom of the problem, not getting to the root cause. And so it was just a little over a decade ago that we started the initiative (倡议)itself.” says Seligman.
The Trash Free Potomac Watershed Initiative is an effort by the Alice Ferguson Foundation to support clean agricultural methods. It includes educational programs teaching children about the kinds of pollution that can enter the watershed.
One activity is called the Trash Timeline Game. It teaches children that the things they throw away do not decompose, at the same rate. For example, paper dissolves in about four weeks. An apple core may take two months to rot. A metal can take up to 100 years.

Here’s the situation. You’re sitting at the table listening to the conversation when your cellphone rings. There is something very important that wants your attention. Maybe your phone buzzed for an email, text message, Facebook post or tweet. You don’t know unless you check your phone. You may be feeling a strong case of FOMO: Fear of Missing Out.
You may think that a quick check of your phone isn’t rude. Your companions probably disagree. A recent study of cellphone use found that most US adults think checking your phone is rude in social situations.
The study found that only 5 percent of Americans felt that checking your cellphone during a meeting is acceptable. Only 12 percent support checking your cellphone during a family dinner.
The study said, “Americans think that when people focus on their phones instead of their companions, it hurts the group in which they are taking part.”
People can be offended when they feel ignored. They also don’t like others who talk too loudly or share private information in public when using their phones.
About three-fourths of US adults view using cellphones in public as acceptable when using public transportation, waiting in line, and walking down the street. But most US adults disapprove of cellphone use at the dinner table, in movie theater, meetings, and places of worship.
People might use their cellphones in social situations because they see others doing it: 86 percent of people surveyed said that someone else used a phone at the most recent social event they attended. People may use their phones at social events to share something from the event. That might be a photo, information, or to free from the group.
12. The writer starts the passage by ______.
13. If you use your cellphones in social situates, others will feel that they aren’t ________.
14. Where do most Americans accept the cellphones use?
15. What might be the most suitable title for the passage?

I have an aunt who work in London. It has been five years that we met each other. Last summer vacation my parent and I took a trip there. I didn’t expect live in a city in England could be much expensive than in my home country in eastern Europe. We went to Cambridge on the other day. They were many kinds of delicious food, so we got ourselves something to eat. I eat Coriander crisps, which were extreme tasty. Although I was tired that day, I really had wonderful time.
