Thank you very much. Thank you!
Thank you for Principal Xu, all the teachers and most importantly, the class of 2019. If I can’t make my speech fantastic, I will at least try to make it short.
It’s been nearly 40 years since I became a member of the navy. You may be wondering how I have won so many honors as a commander-in-chief. In fact, it all began from the half a 16 basic training, which I will never forget, The training included midnight swims in the cold water, days without 17 and long painful runs in the soft sand, I always felt cold, wet, sleepy and painful.
The training also needed to find those who could 18 in an environment of stress, mess, failure and hardships. To me, the basic training was a lifetime of challenges that lasted six months. And today, I’d like to talk about one little thing, which I think is one of the most important points leading to great 19 .
Every morning in the training, my instructors(教官) would 20 in our rooms. The first thing they did was to 21 our beds. The corners would be square if we did it right. The covers would be pulled tight, and the pillow would be centered just under the headboard.
It was a(n) 22 task. But every morning we were required to make our beds 23 . It seemed a little funny, but the wisdom of this simple act has been proved to me many times over.
If you make your bed every morning, you will have completed the 24 task of the day. It will bring you a small sense of success, and it will 25 you to do another task, and another and another. And by the end of the day, one task completed will have 26 into many tasks completed. Making your bed will prove the fact. If you can’t do the little things right, you will 27 be able to do the big things right.
28 the world can happen anywhere and anyone can do it. I can make sure that it doesn’t matter whether I ever 29 a day in uniform. Even now, I still start my day with making the bed to perfection. So if you have an awful day by accident, you will come home to a bed that is made-that you made-and a made bed gives you encouragement that tomorrow will be better.
In general, if you want to change the world, 30 off by making your bed. I hope all of you will have a brighter future!

Li Yang, a student in Beijing, used to be worried by piles of books as her house is too small. The problem was solved when she started to sell the used books on an online second-hand bookstore Deja Vu. “By selling them, most of my books which used to gather dust in the corner can come to life again. ” she said.
According to a survey by giant Alibaba in 2018, the market for the second-hand book was booming last year as more Chinese tend to trade or exchange their used books online.
The rise of online second-hand book platforms and sharing ideas also contributed to the booming book recycling.
Users are able to sell their books by scanning the barcode(扫条形码)of books and then wait for the courier(快递员) to collect them. The collected books will be cleaned, disinfected (消毒) and packed before selling to other readers at a lower price.
According to Deja Vu, its total users hit l. 4 million in 2018, with 2 million used books being sold. It has a daily business of 20,000 books. “When I see my books being read by others, I can feel a pleasure of sharing, which is really amazing. ”

When I was young, I lived in Scotland with my parents.
I had a good time there.
One morning, I ran to the garden, and said to the old Scotsman who worked there. “Today I am going up the mountain for berries. ”
“No, no, Missey, not today. ” he said , “It will rain. ”
“No, it will not rain. ” I said, “The sun is up. The cook says it will be
fine. The glass in the hall does not say rain. ”
“Tuts, tuts. ” said the old man, “I care for no suns, or cooks, or glasses.
The pimpernel (海绿) says it will rain, and so it will rain. Flowers, Missey, always tell the truth. When they say rain, go and get your umbrella.”
Sure enough, by noon the rain was pouring down. After that, I looked with great respect at the tiny flower, sometimes brickred, sometimes blue, which could tell about the weather. But the pimpernel is not the only plant that is a weather prophet.
If you go into the garden, and find the African marigolds shut after seven o’clock in the morning, you may be pretty sure that there will be a rainy day. There is a little single marigold which shuts up in a hurry if the sky becomes clouded. It is called the “rainy-marigold”.
Most plants which we call “weather prophets” shut up for rain. But some plants open for rain. The cause of the opening and closing is probably the difference in light. Most likely these plants shut their flowers because there is too little light.
But you know there are some plants which become smaller in a strong light and love the shade. You will find that most shade-loving plants, as the verbenas, do not close for rain.
Lilies, tulips and other flowers that love the sun shut for rain. Tulips are careful not to open their cups very wide in the morning if it is likely to rain. The roses make no change. They seem not to fear wet.
On the whole, you may be pretty sure, if you go into your garden, and find many flowers-as tulips, marigolds and morning glories-shut, it will be a stormy day, unfit for picnics or long walks.

A. The flowers have four ways to help people to get information about weather.
B. The glass in the hall has magic for the writer’s family to know about weather.
C. We can know about weather by keeping many roses at home or in the garden.

We never forget when Perronet came to us. It was on a spring afternoon. We never knew who drowned Perronet, but David pulled him out of the water and saved his life, People sometimes asked us what kind of dog he was, but we never knew, except that he was the nicest possible kind. Mother said we could not afford him because of the tax(税) and his keep. The tax was five shillings（先令）， but it was nearly a year before the time when it must be paid. At last, we decided that all three of us would give up sugar toward saving the cost of his keep. It was the hardest for David because he was fond of sweet things, but then, he was fond of Perronet. So we all gave up sugar, and Perronet was allowed to remain.
We were very happy that summer. The boys were especially happy. The only thing that vexed me was Perronet’s tax money, for months and months went on and we didn’t save it. One day, I found David alone with Perronet in his arms. He was crying, and feeding Perronet with cake. I can’t bear to see boys cry. I begged of David to stop, and told him I should certainly think of something.
One day, we were all in school. The schoolmaster told us that there was to be a flower show for the school children this year, and that an old gentleman would give prizes to the best arranged wild flowers. There was to be a first prize of five shillings, and a second prize of a half crown, for the best collection of wild flowers, with their names upon them. I squeezed(挤) David’s arm, and whispered, “Five shillings!”
I thought I could never get my lessons that day, for all day I was thinking about Perronet’s tax money. At night, I said to them, “Look here! I’ll make a collection of flowers. You two can make a collection of mosses(苔藓). There are ten kinds of mosses by the river, and we have names of our own for them. ” The boys agreed. Richard made me a box. We put wet sand at the bottom, then feather moss, and into that I stuck the flowers. I got all the flowers and all the grasses ready and printed the names on pieces of cardboard, to stick in with them. I didn’t like it when it was done, but Richard praised it and that cheered me. I thought their mosses were beautiful.
The day of the flower show was very hot. When we reached the tent, it was filled with grown-up people. It was very hard work getting about and trying to see the stands with flowers. We kept seeing tickets with “First Prize” and “Second Prize”. It made me feel sick with heat and anxiety, to think of them. We had walked slowly all round the tent. We had seen all the cucumbers, onions, lettuce, grapes, long potatoes, round potatoes and everything else. At last we saw my collection! It had a label on it, marked “First Prize”, and next to it came the boy’s moss, marked “Second Prize”. We cried “Perronet is paid for!”

Joining a short-term research program in China has not only allowed Pakistani agricultural scientist Sayyar Khan to push forward with his academic studies, but also given him a chance to see a country he had heard so much about.
Khan is now doing a one-year research program at the Beijing Academy of Agriculture and Forestry Sciences. The program is sponsored by the Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology and many young talented scientists who come from collaborating countries, such as Pakistan, are given opportunities to work in China.
Although this is his first visit to China Khan says he is well-informed of the long friendship between China and Pakistan. He is impressed most by the cooperation (合作) in education between China and Pakistan. especially since the start-up of the Belt and Road Initiative (“一带一路”建设) in 2013.
“Many students from my university and my city have visited China and completed their higher education here. ” he says, adding that he has met with many of them.
“I hear news ab out China on television and read about it in print media, so
I know of the rapid development of China in recent decades. ”
Khan says the Belt and Road Initiative will have a very positive effect on the world.
“I hope that I can stay in China to participate in such cooperation projects. ” he says.
