A Pioneer for All People
Although he is one of China's most famous scientists, Yuan Longping considers himself a farmer, for he works the land to do his research. Indeed, his sunburnt face and arms and his slim, strong body are just like those of millions of Chinese farmers, for whom he has struggled for the past five decades. Yuan Longping grows what is called super hybrid rice. In 1973, he became the first agricultural pioneer in the world to grow rice that has a high output. This special strain of rice makes it possible to produce 20% more of the crop in the same fields. Now more than 60% of the rice produced in China each year is from this hybrid strain.
Born in 1930, Yuan Longping graduated from Southwest Agricultural College in 1953. Since then, finding ways to grow more rice has been his life goal.

A Father and a Son
Passing through the Atlanta airport one morning, I caught one of those trains that take travelers from the main terminal to their boarding gates. Free, sterile and impersonal, the trains run back and forth all day long. Not many people consider them fun, but on this Saturday I heard laughter.
At the front of the first car — looking out the window at the track that lay ahead — were a man and his son.
We had just stopped to let off passengers, and the doors were closing again.


The Smile
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I was sure that I was to be killed. I became terribly nervous and distraught. I fumbled (摸索) in my pockets to see if there were any cigarettes which had escaped their search. I found one and because of my shaking, I could barely get it to my lips. But I had no matches; they had taken those.
I looked through the bars at the jailer. He did not make eye contact with me. After all, one does not make eye contact with a thing, a corpse.

(中学篇)2016年第11期:一节培养学生思维品质的阅读课 (江西:温爱英)一文涉及的教学材料

Dear Mr. Hunt,

My problem is that I can’t get on with my family. Relations between my parents have become difficult. They fight a lot, and I really don’t like it. It’s the only communication they have. I don’t know if I should say anything to them about this. When they argue, it’s like a big, black cloud hanging over our home. Also, my elder brother is not very nice to me. He always refuses to let me watch my favorite TV show. Instead he watches whatever he wants until late at night. I don’t think this is fair. At home I always feel lonely and nervous. Is that normal? What can I do?

Dear Sad and Thirteen,
