Part 3. Reading Comprehension

(A)

I am starting to think I’m getting a lite too passionate about my garden. It hit me recently, as I was arranging photographs I took last summer. As I looked through the prints, I saw lots of trees and flowers. New pictures of my kids? No. Portraits of my husband, Jonathan? Only if he happened to be standing next to a plant.

When my kids were litle, I took photo after photo of Jonathan proudly holding them to show off

their first smiles, or first teeth, or first haircuts. Why do I keep my handy now? To keep records of our new pine trees coming off a truck, flowers waiting to be placed in their special bed, seeds coming up through the earth after their long, cold winter sleep, rows of lettuce shining under a gentle, spray, sunflowers standing tall against a fence. Any changes to the garden immediately say to me: That’ll make a nice picture.

So you can imagine my eagerness to read articles on gardening. They teach you everything you need to keep a beautiful yard: how to buy materials, which flowers and trees will grow well in your area, which diseases may harm your greenery and how to treat them, and what it all will cost. All these will help you design our entire yard -- flower beds, shrubs, pool and more.

It's good to know I'm not alone in my passion for gardening -- it's America’s No. 1 hobby. According to a survey, 68 million Americans spent 22 billion dollars on plants and tools in 1993, and 23 million of them do some or all of their own gardening. With all that green cash passing through our green thumbs, it's important that we spend wisely, and what I read provides an economical and new entertaining source of information.

Of course, some days it rains and even the heartiest gardener has to find something else to do. One of the articles contains lots of great ideas on how your computer can enrich you leisure hours when you stop working in the garden. We are encouraged to visit 25 of the best online services, some of the most rewarding local stops on the information highway. Many are free, and offer advice and information based on regional or special interests

The $11 billion self-help industry is built on the idea that you should turn negative thoughts like ”

I never do anything right" into positive ones like "I can succeed." But was positive thinking advocate Norman Vincent Peale right? Is there power in positive thinking?

Researchers in Canada just published a study in the journal Psychological Science that says trying to get people to think more positively can actually have the opposite effect: it can simply highlight how unhappy they are.

The study’s authors, Joanne Wood and John Lee of the University of Waterloo and Elaine Perunovic of the University of New Brunswick, begin by citing older research showing that when people get feedback which they believe is overly positive, they actually feel worse, not better. If you tell your dim friend that he has the potential of an Einstein, you're just underlining his faults, In one 1990s experiment, a team including psychologist Joel Cooper of Princeton asked participants to write essays opposing funding for the disabled. When the essayists were later praised for their sympathy, they felt even worse about what they had written.

In this experiment, Wood, Lee and Perunovic measured 68 students' self-esteem. The participants were then asked to write down their thoughts and feelings far four minutes. Every 15 seconds, one group of students heard a bell. When it rang, they were supposed to tell themselves,” I am lovable.”Those with low self-esteem didn't feel better after the forced self-affirmation. In fact, their moods turned significantly darker than those of members of the control group, who weren’t urged to think positive thoughts.
