Be a virtue teenager, build a civilized city
Being a teenager of Xintai, what should we do to help build a civilized city?
The population of the world continues to increase, but in some areas the population is falling. This is true in Europe and especially in Eastern Europe.⑸ In Russia, the population is going down by about 100 people EVERY HOUR!Russia's population could fall by ONE THIRD by the year 2050! And in Poland (波兰)the population is also going down because people are leaving to work in other countries.
One of the main reasons is a change of lifestyle. All over Europe people, especially educated women, have a different attitude(态度)to children than their parents. "I have one child and she is enough for me," said Galina Tereschkova, a doctor from Moscow." My husband and I both work full-time. We can't imagine having more than one child." Many women decide to have children later in life or not to have children at all. "I don't want to have any children ⑷①______ I have worked for at least 10 years," said 19-year-old student Hana Markova from Prague. Her opinion is typical of 18 - 24-year-old women everywhere in Europe.
In Poland, the population is going down for a different reason. A lot of people, usually aged ⑷②______20 and30, are leaving the country to work abroad. Poland joined the European Union in 2005 and since then more than half a million people have moved to Britain, Germany, Spain and Italy. Even so, the population of those four ⑷③______and many other countries in West Europe is also going down.
Many governments are now encouraging people to have larger families. In France, women now receive nearly$ 1,000 a month for a year if they have a third child. Austrian women receive $ 700 a month for three years when they have their first child.(1)、Where in the world is the population getting smaller? ( No more than 7 words)(2)、How many children does Galina Tereschkova want to have? ( No more than 2 words)(3)、Why is the population in Poland going down? ( No more than 12 words)(4)、Fill in each blank in the passage with a proper word.

Many teenagers don't get along well with their parents and they don't know what to do. If you face such a problem, what I'm saying now might be to you.
Have you ever thought of to your parents to find out why you don't get along well with each other? When I was a teenager, I didn't get on well with my parents, .We sometimes argued(争吵)with each other. I am sorry that I had such an experience. Now I'm a mother of four girls. Of course we have different opinions, but I encourage them to communicate me openly and honestly. In this way I make sure that they me and come to me for anything. As a , we get along very well.
Arguing with your parents will make them angry and you won't feel good. Also, remember that the most important thing is to solve problems. Try your best to be calm. If you cannot control your, you can go to a doctor or your teacher could give you advice on your problem.
Remember that your parents love you. Sometimes they do something that you find to understand. For example, you want to be a singer in the future, but your parents want you to do something else. If so, try in their shoes.
Life is too short and family is important! Try your best to get along well with your parents.

Trees in cities "live fast but die young" compared to forests in the countryside, warns a new study.
Researchers found that trees in cities die younger than ones in the countryside because of the higher levels of CO2.Cityliving trees suffer (遭受)a loss of carbon storage(碳储量). That means trees produce less energy from the air.
Now researchers say more must be done to deal with the situation. Ian Smith, a PhD student of Boston University in the United States, said, "Cities are in the important position in fighting against rising temperatures and increasing CO2." "We find that tree planting alone may not be enough to keep and increase city canopy cover(树冠覆盖率). Because of the age and size of the present canopy, efforts to improve and protect tree health are badly needed for increasing city tree cover and canopy cover."
The research team used a model to watch changes among street trees for several planting and management methods. Researchers also used the model to watch tree growth, death and planting rates(率)both among trees in Boston city and forests in the countryside in Massachusetts.
It was discovered that rates of carbon cycling and growth rates among city trees were nearly four times faster than those in the countryside. However, loss of carbon storage and death rates are also higher, especially death rates are more than double higher than those in countryside forests.
The study, published in PLOS ONE, has reminded scientists to encourage communities to do more to plant and protect trees. It is important to increase city canopy cover and carbon storage.
Researchers say planting and protecting will be needed to make sure cities can develop healthily, but more needs to be done to have a better understanding of city trees — which may be different from countryside forests.(1)、According to the passage, which of the following is TRUE?A、The more carbon storage loses, the more energy the trees produce from the air. B、The higher the levels of CO2 are, the harder it will be for the plants to survive. C、If we plant enough trees, we are sure to increase city canopy cover. D、Cities do better in fighting against rising temperatures and increasing CO2.(2)、What does "those" in Paragraph 5 refer to?A、Death rates. B、Rates of carbon cycling. C、Growth rates. D、Loss of carbon storage.(3)、The writer's main purpose of writing the passage is ________.A、to teach us how to improve and protect tree health B、to warn us that trees in cities live fast but die young C、to let us have a better understanding of city trees D、to tell us to take action to increase city canopy cover(4)、Where can you probably read this passage?A、In a story. B、In a science report. C、In a novel. D、In an ad
A doctor entered the hospital hurriedly after being called in for an important surgery (外科手术).

"Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now? Would you calm down? If your own son dies while waiting for a doctor, then what will you do?" said the father angrily. The doctor smiled again and replied, "We will do our best and you should also pray (祈祷)for your son's healthy life."
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, "Thank goodness! Your son is saved!" And without waiting for the father's reply he carried on his way running by saying, "If you have any questions, ask the nurse."
"Couldn't he wait some minutes so that I can ask about my son's state?" shouted the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.
The nurse answered, tears coming down her face. "His son died yesterday in a road accident. He was at the burial (葬礼) when we called him for your son's surgery.

As the taxi leaves, my father stands at the living room window looking out, watching me move off into the darkness, at 4：30 a.m. His grey hair is untidy from sleeping.
Moments ago, he got up to carry my bag for me and went into the cold open air.
He thanked me for a daughter's cooking and for having traveled so far to spend the holiday with him. I told him that I worried about he would feel lonely again in the empty house.
"I have my plans," he said, in the moments before I walked out the door.
When I arrived 10 days ago, I felt it was quiet and lifeless in the house. Then my brothers and I came and filled the rooms. But, now, they're gone; I am the last to leave.
As the taxi began to move, I watched the lights go off, but my father didn't leave. Even though he couldn't see me in the dark, he stood by the window watching, beside the tree. It was a fresh tree. He buys one every year for the new year.

Thousands of fans as well as other common people answered her call to help Wuhan. "When you're going through a situation like this, you would like to offer help. There are so many kind people out there," said a fan, who donated through Han's foundation. "It's good to know that there are trucks with medical supplies going straight to the medical workers." Han turned down interviews. Her friend said she was busy coordinating(协调) work in Wuhan. "Many people don't trust charity organizations to use their donations properly.
