“My dear dad, where are we going？”This has become the most popular question these days. It's a line from the theme song of Hunan TV Station's reality show Where Are We Going, Dad?
“All of my classmates are big fans，”said Ning Yun, 14, from Guangxi.“On Fridays, we remind others: don't forget to watch it tonight！”
In the show, five pairs of fathers and kids go to different places and finish interesting jobs. It's all about growing up. Clumsy fathers learn to cook and look after their kids. The kids learn about teamwork and living and working by themselves.
In the show, Kimi, four years old, finds it hard to finish his work alone.“When I saw Kimi looking for his dad, I can't help laughing，”said Chen Yufang, 13, from Guangxi.“It reminded me of my first night at the school dormitory. I really felt the pain of growing up that night.”
When people see the fathers trying to help their kids, it also touches their hearts more or less. Tian Xiaofeng, for example, 14, from Jiangsu, said his father is like Guo Tao in the program.“He is really strict. And I was sad about it，” he said. But now he sees it in a different way，“Guo Tao's son looks strong－minded. I think his parents give him some good examples. And I guess my father just wants me to be like that，”he said.

Have you ever watched a film with your friends and thought，“How wonderful！”or had a meal with your family and said，“That was the best！”？
Well, there may be a small secret(秘密)about why you enjoyed it so much. Our experiences are stronger if we share them with someone. That means good experiences become better, and bad ones become worse. That's according to a new study by Yale University.
Scientists did a small study on female college students. In the test they share chocolate with someone they thought was another participant. But in fact, it was a scientist. In each test, they got two pieces of chocolate. They ate one piece at the same time with the“participant”and another piece alone. The participants thought the chocolate was tastier and more enjoyable when they shared it with someone. Even though both pieces of chocolate were from the same box.
Scientists then did another experiment, this time with bitter,_unpleasant chocolate. Again, the participants thought the chocolate was bitterer than the piece they ate alone.
“When people think of shared experience, what usually comes to mind is being with friends or family，”said scientist Erica Boothby. We often don't know how much people around influence(影响) our decisions, according to Erica.
However, it does show that sharing things with a friend may just make your good way a little brighter. Because the study only looked at female college students, it doesn't mean the whole picture.

American scientists say the ice covering the Arctic (北极的)Ocean is getting less and thinner. This is very bad for the animals living there. The scientists found that older, thicker sea ice was replaced (替换)with new ice day after day. The new ice is thinner and it melts faster than the older ice.

Scientists say ninety percent of all Arctic Ocean ice is only one or two years old. They say the newer ice is easier to melt during the summer months.
The area of the ice and its thickness are very important to the health of the Arctic Ocean. Because it throws sunlight back into space and keeps the sea cold. The ice also cools the air. But when the ice melts, the sun warms ocean waters.
A scientist says a warmer Arctic and thinner sea ice change the balance (平衡)between the cold Arctic and warmer areas.
