wife. worked to plant 20,000 trees alongside thousands of other volunteers from
around the world came together through the online platform "Andrei's Country". I was
impressed to see how so many volunteers, most of whom were young, worked together to make
Romania a much (green) place to live in. The volunteering experience is unique
one as the area where we planted trees really needed the help of volunteers. Realizing the fact
Romania has experienced serious deforestation. I have decided that if there is any way I can

together. They really seemed to get along well.
My husband had a sick cat that died at that time. It literally broke his heart and he grieved
deeply for so long that even I was getting worried about him. He had no energy, cried and even
quit his bike riding.
Five-year-old Jacob immediately noticed and asked me what was wrong. I told him about the
loss of our cat and how my husband didn't want to ride, or visit his friends. Jacob listened carrfully
without a word and ran back home.
The next day, the door bell rang. There was Jacob and his mom with a huge plate of
homemade chocolate cookies. On top of that, Jacob had a huge paper card in his hand. Jacob's
mom explained, "Jacob came home yesterday and told me about your husband's situation. He
wanted to do something immediately to cheer him up and asked me to help him make chocolate
cookies with the material left at home." Jacob also asked his mom to write down a message on a
piece of paper so he could copy it in hts own handwriting. He drew a picture of my husband and
the cat on the card and signed his name.

Several years ago, a student working on a research project in my laboratory approached me
with concern. "I'm doing something wrong," she exclaimed. I had seen her research results and
knew she was making good progress, so I was surprised to hear that she was having a problem.
Over the next several days we went through her experiment; yet I could not find a pmblem. Finally,
I asked her, "Why do you think you're doing something wrong?" "Because I'm not getting what
you said I should get," she replied with some confusion.
Her response shocked me. I had not told her what she "should get”, but we had discussed
some published hypotheses(假说) several weeks earlier. On seeing the research data that did not
fit these predictions, I recognized that she had a new finding and came to change my hypmheses.
But she was interpreting her results as a mistake. With almost four years of a college science
major behind her, this student still had the common misunderstanding that science is a boring
exercise in proving something we already know to be true.My,wife,and,i,have,been,together。
But how can this happen? Throughout school, science is often described in textbooks as a
series of "known" facts and figures; for example, DNA is a double helix; earthquakes occur at
plate boundaries, etc. Unfortunately, the process by which these discoveries were made and how
they fit into scientific progress are often ignored in the classroom. These details help show the
nature of scientific discoveries and the skepticism (质疑) that goes with new discoveries before
they are accepted.
Understanding science is more than memorizing that DNA is a double helix. It is to have the
ability to take in new information on diet, exercise, or disease and apply it to our own lives.
Understanding the process of science and scientific problem-solving can help us make better
decisions every day.

I am the third daughter in a family of five. I was born at Malden hospital and was
immediately sent to Floating Hospital in Boston. I had a hole in my heart and a low platelet count
(血小板计数), which are common problems of people with TAR syndrome (综合症). I came
home for a short stay after my birth and then went back and did not return home until just before
Thanksgiving, My parents have told me that after I was hom our family doctor had a very
important conversation with them. He said, "You have two choices with your daughter. One is that
you do everything for her now, in the future, and after you die; the other is that you do nothing."
My parents picked the former.
I do not have a great many memories of my childhood but I do remember I spent the first ten
years in and out of hospitals. I do remember I stayed in the Boston hospital until I was around 2
years old and then I went to Shriners. I guess few children can bear that.
I've grown up with great determination. I think that was a personality trait that I was born me as I grew up. I had to deal with a lot of people
making fun of me, staring at me, and pitying me. At a young age I realized that I could hide my
pain with laughter. So I used that method when other children made fun of me and they stopped a
lot faster than if I cried. Laughter was not the expected response so I guess they didn t feel it was
fun to continue. There was emotional and physical pain. I required the aid of a walker until I was
about five years old. I had about ten major operations before the age of ten. I had to relearn to
walk several times. I think having TAR syndrome has made me a strong person physically and
emotionally. Despite these difficulties and challenges, I have gone on to be awarded a Master's
Degree and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do (跆拳道), and I am now an inspirational speaker.

Authorities in India warn that the world-famous Taj Mahal desperately needs repairs. Some
say that this architectural landmark could eventually collapse (倒塌) unless efforts are made to
protect and preserve it.
The Taj Mahal, completed in the 17th century, was built in Agra, India, on the edge of the
Ydmuna River. The wooden foundation that holds up the building stays strong because of the environment around the river. If the river were to dry out, the wooden foundation could
crack and fall apart. Unfortunately, over the past decade, the Yamuna River has been shrinking,
especially during the summer months. This is partly because of overuse of the river water in daily
life and in industry.
Some officials have said the building may collapse in as little as five years. Other experts
disagree and question whether the building really faces any danger. Certain politicians and
historians, however, are pushing the government to begin preservation efforts, or work to repair
and take care of the building.
This is not the first time that the Taj Mahal has been threatened. In 1996, officials thought air
pollution was turning the building yellow. The Indian government ordered nearby factories to stop
burning coal or leave the area. The Taj Mahal was built by a former emperor of India in honor of his dead wife. Many
architects say the building is a masterpiece of symmetry. Symmetry is a visual technique where
the right side of an object looks the same as the left side of the object.
The Taj Mahal has been named as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, a list of amazing
human-made landmarks. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO) lists the Taj Mahal as a World Heritage Site and helps preserve the hmous structure.
