"Are you crazy?" people around him shouted as Alex mien, a 33-year-old immigrant(移民), ran toward three cars in a chain accident along the highway in Miami, which were burning down. Alex didn't think twice.
The article"Against the Flames" reported how he put out the fire on a car and pulled a couple out of another. But when he returned to his own car, steam was coming out from it. It was damaged beyond repair.
Back in his tiny flat, alone and with little money, Alex didn't know what to do. He was already working, going to college and supporting his wife, Aline, and children back in Haiti. He worried about his wife's health ；doctors thought she had cancer(癌症). Every cent was important to him. And now this.
Within weeks of reading the article, readers sent hundreds of letters offering jobs, money and best wishes. One delivered a car--used, but in fine condition. Others helped Aline come to Miami,where a medical team found out it was not cancer.
Readers also wrote to U. S. government officials to support the immigration of Alex' s family to Miami. Consul General Roger Daley even invited Alex to discuss the matter. Aline, together with their children ,joined Alex in Miami this past March. Alex says, "I would like to say a beautiful thanks to the readers. There are good people everywhere in this world. "

In January 2004, a 20-year-old woman ran a red light while talking on a cell phone. Her car knocked into another car crossing with the green light directly in front of her. The police found the driver never touched her brakes ( 刹车) and was traveling 48 mph when she hit the other car. The police were told that the driver was not looking down, pressing buttons. She was looking straight out of the windshield(挡风玻璃) talking on her cell phone as she passed four cars and a school bus.
Vision is the most important sense for safe driving. Yet, drivers using cell phones are likely to"look at" but not "see" objects. It is said that drivers using cell phones look but fail to see up to 50percent of the information while driving. Drivers are looking out of the windshield, but they do not really deal with the situation on the road.
Although the public appear to be turning against cell phone use while driving, many admit they regularly talk or text while driving. The police say that nine percent of the drivers at any given time are using cell phones, and about one in four car accidents are directly related to cell phone use.
Using cell phones while driving has become a serious public health threat (威胁). A few states have passed laws making it unlawful to use a hand held cell phone while driving, but these laws give the false message that using a hand-free phone is safe.

A.She was busy pressing buttons.
B.She was talking on her cell phone.
C.She was looking at the red light ahead.

45.What is the percentage of the car accidents caused by drivers using cell phones?
A.9%. B.25%. C.45%. D.50%.
46.What do we know about the laws making it unlawful to use a hand held cell phone while driving?
A.They are not perfect. B.They are not necessary.
C.They are not practical. D.They are not important
Many people thought babies were not able to learn things until they were five or six months old.But doctors now say babies begin learning,,on their first day of life. A baby will smile if his or her mother does something the baby likes. A baby learns to get the best care by smiling to please her mother or other care givers. This is when babies learn to connect and "talk" with other people.
Language skills are believed to develop best in the first three years when the place is rich with sounds and sights. Scientists say children should hear the speech and language of other people again and again. The first signs of communication(交际) happen during the first few days of life.when a baby learns that crying will bring food and attention.
Research shows that most children recognize the general sounds of their native language by six months of age. By that time, a baby usually begins to make sounds. By the end of their first year, most children are able to say a few simple words, although they may not understand the meaning of the words. By 18 months of age, most children can say between eight and ten words. By two years of age,most children are able to make simple sentences. By ages three,four and five,the number of words a child can understand quickly increases. It is at these ages that children begin to understand the rules of language.
