Recently I and other Red Cross volunteers met a group of victims from Hurricane Katrina.We were there,as mental health professionals,to offer“psychological first aid”and I was struck by the simple healing power of presence.As we walked in the gate to the shelter,we were greeted with a burst of gratitude (感激) from the first person we met.I felt appreciated,but also guilty,because I hadn’t really done anything yet.
I first realized the power of presence many years ago when a friend’s mother passed away unexpectedly.I had received a call saying she had just passed away.I wanted to rush down there immediately,but didn’t want to intrude（打扰）on this very personal period of sadness.I was torn about what to do.Another friend with me then said,“Just go.Just be there.”I did,and I will never regret it.
Since then,I have not hesitated to be in the presence of others.Once I sat at the bedside of a young man suffering from the pain of his AIDS-related dying.He was not awake,and obviously unaware of others’ presence.However,the atmosphere was by no means solemn.His family,playing guitars and singing,allowed him to be present with them as though he were still fully alive.
In my life,I am repeatedly struck by the healing power of presence.In it,none of us are truly alone.It is not only something we give to others but also changes me for the better.

Among the international students in Canada who are struggling to find a job there after graduation,some of them eventually make it with relative ease.They’re the ones who’ve already built up much internship（实习）experience while still attending university,as their majors offer a co-operative program.
Co-op programs,a feature（特色）of Canadian university programs,allow academic studies to be combined with work experience.During school years,students get to network with employers,gain internship experience in relevant fields,and earn academic credits that count toward their degree or diploma.
Co-op programs are available in most comprehensive universities,like the University of Waterloo,Wilfrid Laurier University and York University.These programs are not only open to students majoring in business but also to many science and art majors.Statistics show that nearly 30 percent of recent foreign applicants have chosen majors that also subscribe to the co-op program.“It’s easy to understand,”said a senior education counselor.He noted that working opportunities are provided by employers that build bridges with the university and most of them are well-known companies or local government organizations.Moreover,the average salary for interns is as high as C$30,000 to C$40,000 a year.
Students can choose to work during vacations or term times freely.The required duration of the internship for undergraduates ranges from eight to twelve months,or four to six months for graduate students.“The programs also benefit those students who want to apply for immigration,”added the counselor.“That’s because the policies of many provinces in Canada require a certain length of work experience of the applicants.”

It’s cold and dark outside,and your bed is so warm and comfortable.Going for a run seems like such a bad idea.But before you hide your running shoes,it might be worth giving that crazy idea a go.
According to The Huffington Post,an outdoor run in winter,as opposed to one on a treadmill（跑步机）,burns more calories because the body is working hard to regulate（调节）its core temperature.Furthermore,research shows that race times are faster in cold weather than in warmer temperatures-and quicker runs burn more calories.Similarly,cold weather also makes the heart work harder to distribute blood through the body,making that vital muscle even stronger.
Outdoor exercise also turns up your energy and rids you of the stress and depression that build up every day.The heat and humidity in the summer can drag you down and tire you faster,but cold weather is refreshing.It adjusts you to your surroundings,making you feel alive.
Of course,the threat of smog in some built-up areas is a further hurdle to winter exercise.Heart attacks,stroke,lung cancer and asthma are all dangers of running in smog.The combination of air pollution and exercise increases the potential problems.If you do choose to run outside on smoggy days,take a path in a park or residential area to avoid car exhaust（尾气）,and go early in the morning,before rush hour.But staying inside on smoggy days and waiting for the next clear day to run is best.
