三(书上为排序题)Let me now share my six business success ―secrets‖ with you:

Provide more and better products and services, to larger numbers of people, at less cost. Marketing is everything. Marketing is the key to letting the world know about your products and services. There have been many products that had great sales potential, but have failed owing to poor marketing.

Keeping a tight control on expenses—while at the same time avoiding being ―penny wise and pound foolish,‖ is a wise business practice. There must be a willingness to take risks. You should not risk more than you can afford to lose, but you can‘t afford not to take certain business risks.

An entrepreneur must deliver good quality products and services and support themwith a responsible attitude towards shortcomings and faulty products. Related to that is good customer service.

The businessperson should always look for ways to improve their goods and services,as well as ways to increase efficiency and expand their marketing reach..

I‘ve just revealed a handful of universal principles of business success. If you apply them, they can contribute towards your own business success.

四The news that a sheep in Scotland has been successfully cloned got me wondering .What good would it be to clone humans? What would i do with a clon of myself ? Then it hit me that i

could have my clone go into work for me while i

went out hiking , biking , sking , etc ! Ireally

could be in two places at once .

But wait a minute . If that‘s what i would do

with my clone , how do i know that i‘m not a

clone myself ? What if the original me had

himself cloned and sent the clone in to do his

work for him?

This explains a lot :

---all those mysterious checks i find in my bank

statement every month but don‘t remember


---why my wife doesn‘t seem to notice when

i‘ve been out of town ,

---all those traffic tickets i have to pay but swear

i never received in the first place .

---why my frien ds say things like ,―i thought i

saw you out skiing last week,‖when i know i

was at work ,

---why i keep getting fines for overdue books at

the library , when i only check out CD‘s ,

---the unexplained charges to my bredit from

London , Paris , New York ...

I can only hope the original me never gets

sentenced to prison .

五The purpose of education is not only to

train youngsters for the employment market, but

to prepare them for tomorrow‘s society. Because

of the rapidly changing world, one can argue that

changes will be continuous, which will make

lifelong learning necessary for those who expect

to handle the changes successtully. While some

may argue that their education commenced

when they began school and concluded when

they completed it, modern reality suggests that

education is a lifelong process, and the

classroom is merely the beginning of the

education process. The very nature of its

definition implies that education is lifelong.

Lifelong education builds on and affects all

existing educational providers, and extends

beyond the formal educational providers to

include all bodies and individuals involved in

learning activities.

Lifelong education means enabling people to

learn at different times, in different ways, for

different purposes at varions stages of their lives

and careers.

六often find myself trying to explain the

attraction traveling holds for me . Traveling ,

according to many people ,is often

uncomfortable and even ,at least

sometimes ,dangeious .Butone benefit of

traveling is that it creates a perfect atmosphere

foe the observation of life an environment that

can lead to better understanding anf

enlightenment .Many wonderful people and

places lie on the road ahead . The fact that there

are obstacles as well only makes the jounery

more rewarding .My life and my memories will

be enriched after encountering these people and

places .That‘s a pretty big benefit!

Of course I could also enrich my life without

traveling very far at all , but there is something

about foreign lands that provides an additional

fascination.I think most non-travelers are simply

too distracted by things such as work ,home ,and

friends to devote their full attention to

observation of life .I‘m more observant when

I‘m on the road and listen to them carefully .I

keenly notice everying about my strange new

environment .I see a lot of hmor that can

compensate for the misery of moving about.

七Depending on the drug,many people report

feelings like happiness, counfidence, orpeace

when they take drugs. But even when they‘re

fee ling these things, there‘s a sense that it‘s not

real, that the happiness is going to disappear any

moment. And unfortunately, in most cases these

feelings are followed by depression, anxiety,

guilt, embarrassment, loneliness and a yearning

for more drugs.

Generally, drugs interfere with the nervous

system‘s basic functions. Sometimes they alter

the muscles and how they function

too.Besides,almost all drugs can make it tougher

to sleep.Some drugs can cause immediate

death,and some can give even healthy people a

heart attack on the http://www.wendangku.net/doc/c4021d0403d8ce2f00662394.htmling drugs over and

over for a long period time can cause lots of

medical problems,from lung cancer to liver

problem to brain damage.

In addition to the physical problems,drugs cause

major long-term brain issues. Depression is a

serious problem for many addicts.Also,they can

really hurt people. Drug addicts almost without

exception start to tell lies,steat money for

drugs,sometimes even get violent with people

they love.Their biggest ambition becomes

getting high,instead of setting high goals.

八Wars between states have become less

frequent. But in the last decade internal wars

have claimed more than 5 million lives, and

driven even more people from their homes. At

the same time weapons of mass destruction

continue to cast their 1)___shadow of fear___.

The threat of deadly conflict must be tackled

2)at every stage:

Pursuing arms reductions. The

Secretary-General urges Member States to

control small arms transfers more rigorously;

and to re-commit themselves to reducing the

dangers both of existing 3)nuclear weapons and

of further proliferation.

Strengthening 4)peace operation.While

traditional peacekeeping had focused mainly on

monitoring ceasefires, today‘s complex peace

operations are, in essence, to assist the parties

5)engaged in conflict to pursue their interests

through political channels instead.

Prevention. Conflicts are most frequent in poor

countries, especially in those that are ill

governed and where there are sharp inequalities

between ethnic or 6)religious groups. The best

way to prevent them is to promote balanced

7)economic development, combined with

human rights, minority rights and fair political

arrangements. Also, illicit transfers of weapons,

money, or natural resources must be focused.
