We all love our parents and turn to them when we’re in need, but would you like them to hear the ___16___ you have with your friends in the school playground or lunch queue? Social networking sites, such as micro-blog, blog and the Facebook, have actually become ___17___ of the school hallways(走廊), so would you add your parents as “friends” and allow them to ___18___ your online ___19___ and conversations with friends?
In the past the generation gap included a technology gap, where children were ___20___ with latest technology and parents were left behind, content to continue their day-to-day lives as they always had because they had no ___21___ to be good at new technology. ___22___, more and more parents are beginning to ___23___ just how important social networks are in their lives. This realization has given many parents the ___24___ to educate themselves about social networking sites.
These days many people are ___25___ to social networking sites because they can choose who they have around them; there’s also a certain amount of control over ___26___ that we don’t get in real life. Sometimes we feel that privacy is ___27___ when we must accept a “friend” request from a parent or family member.
It’s a difficult choice whether or not to allow a parent to become a part of our ___28___ lives. On the one hand we don’t want to “refuse” their request because that might hurt their feelings or make them feel you have something to ___29___. On the other hand if you do accept, then you could have a(n) ___30___ of being watched and no longer feel ___31___ to comment or communicate the way you did before.
A recent survey suggested that parents shouldn’t take it personally if their child ignores their request: “When a teen ignores a parent’s friend request, it doesn’t ___32___ mean that they are hiding something, but it could mean that this is one part of their life where they want to be truly ___33___.” Perhaps talking with parents and giving explanations would help soften the ___34___ if you do choose not to ___35___ them to your friends list.

Appeal to Emotion
My childhood left three months ago on a plane to Austria.
It was a 36 day when my baby cousins moved away. My cousins were a fundamental part of my life; 37 they were not with me, they were on my mind. They brought back the untroubled days of my childhood, 38 games, adventures and silliness, but they also helped 39 me from an at-times selfish teenager into a responsible adult.
My aunt and uncle moved here from Boston with their 1-year-old daughter Yasmeen. They lived in an apartment on the side of our house and I was 40 to have our family, especially a baby girl, so close to us. Yasmeen had close friendships with each of my sisters, but I knew the one that 41 between us was the strongest. As she began to walk on her own and talk in full sentences, I realized my great 42 upon her. I noticed that she’d 43 some of my unpleasant actions, 44 with her mother after I had done the same. Yasmeen made me realize what being a good 45 really was.
When Maya was born, Yasmeen had a hard time ___46 . She was jealous（妒忌）of the attention we all paid to her new younger sister, so I did my best to keep her company when she might have not been 47 . Once Yasmeen overcame her jealousy, she was able to 48 Maya’s presence, like we all did. I tried to take advantage of our times together, doing my best to 49 my schedule for my two favorite people.
My 50__ with Yasmeen and Maya has taught me the importance of influential people. I know that I have helped Yasmeen and Maya __51 , but “the babies” have had an even greater influence on my own life. They have shown me how to be a parent, a sister, a child, and most importantly, a friend. Our 52 has made me a better person—a more patient person, with the ability to 53 endless questions and spilled（洒）juice; an 54 person, able to have fun and be happy with others; a role model, 55 the babies ideas about right and wrong, and a compassionate person, able to forgive and love.

It is every kid's worst nightmare and six-year-old Jaden has lived it—twice. First he lost his dad when he was four and then last month his mom died 36 in her sleep. “I tried and I tried and I tried to get her 37 — I couldn't,” said Jaden.
Jaden is 38 heartbroken.
“Anybody can die, 39 anybody,” he said.

“I'm trying to make people smile,” said Jaden.
Jaden 46 people who aren't already smiling and then 47 their day around. He's gone out on four different occasions now and he is always successful, 48 sometimes he doesn't get exactly the 49 he was hoping for.
It is just so 50 to some people that a six-year-old orphan would give away a toy— expecting nothing 51 —except a smile.
Of course he is 52 well in hugs — and his aunt says the reactions have done wonders for Jaden.
“It’s like sheer joy came out of this child,” said Barbara.
“But I’m 53 sad my mom died,” Jaden said.
This is 54 a fix, but in the smiles he’s made so far — nearly 500 at last count — Jaden has clearly found a purpose.
“I'm 55 the smiles to be 33, 000,” said Jaden. When asked if he thinks he can make that goal, he answered: “I think I can.”

Every year when Mother’s Day cards show up in the stores, I 36 the woman who brought me into this world and often threatened to do away with me. She wasn’t too 37 of gifts. I could just send a card and she’d be happy as a mother clam.
She died nearly 20 years ago 38 lung cancer. A few months later, I was in a grocery store 39 a Mother’s Day card when suddenly I 40 I had no one to send it to. It’s 41 to admit to losing central of my emotions over a shelf of Hallmark cards. But that is what I did. I drove home and started a new Mother’s Day 42 : Remembering my mother. Each Mother’s Day, I picked a different 43 , a different part of who she was. This time it’s some of the things she said. For example:
“You’ve got to learn to see danger ” I did that the minute I gave birth to my first child.
“Pretty is as pretty does,” I’m still working on that one.
When I 44 her not to send my brother, who was seven years old and totally blind, to board at the state school. She said: “They’ll teach him to read Braille. If he’s ever going to have a life, he’s got to learn to read.” I didn’t know at the time those were the 45 words I’d ever heard.
My mother 46 through life, setting off memories like fireworks. But her memories, much like some I’ll erase, are not all happy.
I always have a sense of 47 . Her favourite question was “When are you coming home?” My standard 48 was, “ As soon as I can.” It meant not 49 and never often enough. The last thing she said that I can’t forget: “You don’t know what you’ve got till it is 50 .
My mother was a very smart woman. I spent the first 40 years of my life thinking how different we were. 51 I find myself thinking just how much I resemble her.
Mothers come in all 52 . We all have different philosophies, different definition of what it 53 to be a mother. But one thing most of us can 54 is that mothers hope to be remembered by their children. I wonder if you treasure every chance to 55 Mother’s Day.

We all love our parents and turn to them when we’re in need, but would you like them to hear the __36__ you have with your friends in the school playground or lunch queue? Social networking sites, such as micro-blog, blog and the Facebook, have actually become __37__ of the school hallways (走廊), so would you add your parents as “friends” and allow them to __38__ your online __39__ and conversations with friends?
In the past the generation gap included a technology gap, where children were __40__ with latest technology and parents were left behind, content to continue their day-to-day lives as they always had because they had no __41__ to be good at new technology. __42__, more and more parents are beginning to __43__ just how important social networks are in their lives. This realization has given many parents the __44__ to educate themselves about social networking sites.
These days many people are __45__ to social networking sites because they can choose who they have around them; there’s also a certain amount of control over __46__ that we don’t get in real life. Sometimes we feel that privacy is __47__ when we must accept a “friend” request from a parent or family member.
It’s a difficult choice whether or not to allow a parent to become a part of our __48__ lives. On the one hand we don’t want to “refuse” their request because that might hurt their feelings or make them feel you have something to __49__. On the other hand, if you do accept, then you could have a(n) __50__ of being watched and no longer feel __51__ to comment or communicate the way you did before.
A recent survey suggested that parents shouldn’t take it personally if their child ignores their request: “When a teen ignores a parent’s friend request, it doesn’t __52__ mean that they are hiding something, but it could mean that this is one part of their life where they want to be truly __53__.” Perhaps talking with parents and giving explanations would help soften the __54__ if you do choose not to__55__ them to your friends list.

I’ve never thought that a fundraiser could have had such a huge influence on my life. Back in 5th grade, our school announced a fundraiser and each class would get a box to fill it up with small 36 . To make my class to come to the first place in the fundraiser, I took two fifty-dollar bills 37 to school and tossed them into the box.
Two weeks later, my parents asked me about the 38 . They said they had discovered the truth and weren’t 39 , but I must do something to 40 it.
My dad had the perfect idea in mind. The day 41 Christmas, he took me to St. John’s Hospice in north Philadelphia, and explained to me that we were going to be 42 in the kitchen for several hours, making meals with potatoes and chicken for the 300-400 43 men that came in each day.
As the lunch began, I thought I could 44 this by playing with my new toys. But 45 the mealtime went on, I found these men were overjoyed at the 46 food they were receiving, which I couldn’t 47 . I considered it a fairly common winter meal.The men’s faces lit up with each portion of food they were given. I realized how poor some people in this world actually are.
I had always heard about giving to the needy, but I never fully 48 it until that day. It was enlightening to see how thankful they were for something I thought was 49 . I learned that I didn’t 50 need all the materialistic things I initially desired. On the drive home, my dad 51 McDonald’s for lunch and I immediately answered no. I knew that I didn’t 52 it.
That day I came to know how 53 the feeling is to help people who are really in need. I now return to St John’s Hospice every year, trying to make a 54 . This is why I am becoming a doctor, thinking that in the future I will make a difference in people’s lives just like my father 55 on that December 26th.

It was the end of my first day as waitress in a busy New York restaurant. My cap had gone away, and my feet 36 . The loaded plates I carried 37 to be heavier and heavier. Tired and discouraged, I didn’t seem able to do anything 38 . As I made out a check for a family with several children who had changed their ice-cream 39 a dozen times, I was ready to stop. Then the father 40 at me as he handed my tip. “Well done,” he said, “you’ve 41 us really well.” Suddenly my tiredness 42 . I smiled back, and later, when the manager asked me how I’d like my first day, I said, “43 !” Those few words of praise had 44 everything. Praise is like 45 to the human spirit; we cannot flower and grow without it. And 46 , while most of us are only too 47 to apply to others the cold wind of criticism, we are 48 to give our fellows the warm sunshine of praise. Why---when one word of praise can bring such 49 ?
It’s strange how chary we are about praising. Perhaps it’s 50 few of us know how to accept it. It’s 51 rewarding to give praise in areas in which 52 generally goes unnoticed or unmentioned. An artist gets complimented (admired) for a glorious picture, a cook for a 53 meal. But do you ever tell your laundry manager how pleased you are when the shirts are 54 just right? In fact, to give praise 55 the giver nothing but a moment’s thought and a moment’s effort.

It’s no 36 that kids love dinosaurs. Many of them have even gone through what’s called a “dinosaur phase”--- a period of time 37 they can’t stop talking about dinosaurs, can’t 38 without hearing a dinosaur bedtime story, and use a backpack with a dinosaur pattern on it.
Adults may have long 39 out of their dinosaur phase, but somehow the appeal is still there.
The 40 consists in the success of Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film Jurassic Park, and every following installment(一集) of the series. And in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which was 41 in Chinese mainland cinemas on June 15, these ancient beasts are taking over the 42 world once again.
National Geographic has an explanation behind the animals’ 43 : Dinosaurs are “ 44 science and imagination meet”, which is probably what makes them so appealing, to kids and adults alike.
Dinosaurs are often compared to dragons, but are seen as cooler because they’re 45 . The huge skeletons in museums prove their existence millions of years ago on the same Earth that we now live on. 46 , new discoveries have been made in different parts of the world that open up a bigger 47 of these ancient species. And how they went extinct(绝种的) is also a popular subject of 48 studies.
However, we still seem to know so little about dinosaurs, and have to rely on our 49 when it 50 to questions like “How did they live?”, “What did they sound like?” and “How fast could they run?”. It’s this sense of mystery that 51 dinosaurs’ attraction compared to other fierce animals like lions and tigers --- animals that can easily be seen in today’s zoos.
But there’s more to this dinosaur appeal.
According to Guardian reporter Brian Switek, humans are fascinated by dinosaurs not just because we’re interested in their history, but also because we’re trying to have a better understanding of human history.
“Dinosaurs 52 be Hollywood monsters, objects of scientific fascination(着迷) and everything 53 , but at the root of it, our fascination with them 54 from wanting to know more about the prehistory we 55 ,” he wrote
“The dinosaur story is part of our own.”

I was unbelievably proud of my nine-year-old daughter, Emily. Determined to buy a mountain 36 , she’d been saving her pocket money all year, as well as doing small 37 to earn extra money. By Thanksgiving, she had collected only $49. I said, “You can have your pick from my bicycle 38 .” “Thanks, Daddy. But your bikes are so old.” She was right. All my girls’ bikes were 1950s 39 , not the kind a kid today would like to choose.

Then one day, she made a surprising 43 . “You know all the money I’ve been saving?” she said hesitantly. “I’m going to give it to the poor people.” So one cold morning before Christmas, Emily handed her total savings of $58 to a 44 who was really very thankful.
45 by Emily’s selflessness, I decided to contribute one of my old bicycles to a car dealer who was collecting used bikes for poor children. 46 I selected a shiny model from my collection, however, it seemed as if a second bike took on a glow (发光). Should I contribute 47 ? No, one would be enough. But I couldn’t 48 the feeling that I should give a second bike. When I later 49 the bikes, the car dealer said, “You’re making two kids very 50 , sir. Here are your tickets. For each bicycle contributed, we’re 51 one chance to win a girls’ mountain bike.”
Why wasn’t I surprised when that second ticket proved to be the 52 ? I like to think it was God’s way of 53 a little girl for a sacrifice 54 her years—while giving her dad a 55 in the process.
