1 、Younger people and older people do not always agree年青人和年纪大的人常常想法不一样. They sometimes have different ideas about life, work and play. But in one special program in New York State, adults and teenagers live together in peace. Each summer 200 teenagers and 50 adults live together for eight weeks as members of a special work group. Everyone works several hours each day. The aim is not just to keep busy but rather to find meaning and enjoyment in work. Some teenagers work in the woods or on the farms near the village. Some learn to make furniture and to build houses. The adults teach them these skills.
There are several free hours each day. Weekends are free, too. During the free hours some of the teenagers learn photography or painting. Others sit around talking and singing. Each teenager chooses his own way to spend his free time.
When people live together, rules are always necessary. In this program the teenagers and the adults make the rules together. If someone breaks a rule, the problem goes before the whole group. The group discusses the problem. They ask, "Why did it happen? " "What should we do about it? "
One of the teenagers has this to say about the experience: " You stop thinking only about yourself. You learn how to think about the group. "

2、In the United States, it is not customary to telephone someone very early in the morning在美国,通常不会很早打电话给别人. If you telephone him early in the day, while he is shaving or having breakfast, the time of the call shows that the matter is very important and requires immediate attention. The same meaning is attached to telephone calls made after 11:00 pm. If someone receives a call during sleeping hours, he assumes it's a matter of life or death. The time chosen for the call communicates its importance.In social life, time plays a very important part. In the U.S.A. guests tend to feel they are not highly regarded if the invitation to a dinner party is extended only three or four days before the party date. But it is not true in all countries. In other areas of the world, it may be considered foolish to make an appointment too far in advance because plans which are made for a date more than a week away tend to be forgotten. The meaning of time differs in different parts of the world. Thus, misunderstandings arise between people from different cultures that treat time differently. Promptness is valued highly in American life, for example. If people are not prompt, they may be regarded as impolite or not fully responsible. In the U.S. no one would think of keeping a business associate waiting for an hour, it would be too impolite. A person, who is 5 minutes late, will say a few words of explanation, though perhaps he will not complete the sentence.

Which is more important, Health or Wealth?
Some people in this world believe that wealth weighs much more important that health, in their points of view, they took wealth as their vital pursuit. While others think that health is fundamental part of a man's life.
As for me, I would choose health rather than wealth to be the aim I would like to put my whole life to chase. The reasons why I am leaning health are that: Firstly, a healthy body is invaluable and nothing in this world could purchase it even you have stocked tons of golden bars in your yard. Secondly, you can create a better life by working hard with your body to live in a bigger house, drive an expensive car or go to many other places, but what if your body is in very serious condition? Will
you still have that strength and mood to enjoy all of those?
So the true genius of life doesn't rely on the amount of wealth you have, but the healthy body, with that you are holding a tickets to the promising future.。
