B. e Read along as you listen.
According to surveys, 61 percent of Americans,
or 127 million people, are obese. The U.S.
government is worried because too much weight
contrib'utes 10 diabetes, heart disease, and other
Some people blame the food industry and
advertisers for the nation's weight problem. They
say food makers wont people to eat when they're
not hungry and keep eating when they're full .
But food manufacturers say it's not their fault
that many Americans are overweight. People can
choose what they want to eat. They point out that
supermarkets in the United States offer a lot of choices, including low-calorie, fat­
free, and foods. Advertisers say it's not Iheir fault either. More money
is spent on marketing low-calorie and fat-free foods than any other foods.
No matter who's right, it is true: People in the United States are geffing fatter.
They simply eat 100much. As aresult, health departments in the United States are
laking action. For example, New York's health department has asked restaurants
to use healthful ingredients in foods. Many
schools in the United States no longer have soda
or candy vending machines, and school cafeterias
are offering more healthful menus.
Health experts agree thaI being a healthy
nation is everybody's responsibility, that the best
way to solve ihe problem is through education.
Apublic education campaign on food and health
would help educate people about whallhey
eat, forcing food manufacturers to offer more
wholesome and healthful food choices.

very country has its own special treats.
Here are four famous foods from around
the world that you may want to try.
Vegemite is one of the best-loved foods in
Australia, but it's not very popular in other
countries. It's a dark brown spread that
tastes salty-a bit like beef bouillon.
Australians usually eat it on bread
wit h butter, or on toast with
melted cheese. It has a lot of
vitamins and minerals, and most
Australian kids grow up eating it. When
Australians go abroad, many take ajar of
Vegemite. It's hard to find in other countries.
Escargots, or snails, are a popular French dish. The
snails are usually cooked in liquid, then put back
into their shells With butter, garlic, and herbs.
Because snails eat things that can be
poisonous, the snails are first fed lettuce and
flour for about two weeks. 'l'hen they are not
fed anythrng for several days. Tbis cleans out
their stomachs so they are safe to eat.
Ifyou like hot, spicy foods, you'11 like Korean kimchi.
There are many different kinds of kimchi, but the most
popular kind is made from Chinese cabbage, garlic,
onions, and hot peppers. 'fa make kimchi in the
traditional wfW, Koreans combine the ingredients in a big
jar. Then the jar is put outside during the winter months.
This lets the kimchi ferment and gives it a hot, sour taste.
Kimchi is served at meals as a side dish, and it's used in many
recipes. It has lots of vitamins and minerals.
On a hot day in Singapore, try ice kachang, or red.bean
ice. It's a big ball of shaved ice with sweet, frUity syrup
and red beans. The beans are sweet, not salty, and taste
good with the fruit-flavored ice. It's usually served with
milk and jelly. Variations of ice kachang are found all
over Asia.

B. ~ Read along as you listen to the article.
Some people think of certain
sports as only for men or
only for women. For example,
when a girl wants to take up
boxing, people say, "You're
so pretty. Why do you want
to be a boxer? Boxing is for
men." And some parents
don't like it when their sons
show interest in dancing or
figure skating.
It is generally true that boys tend to do sports that require
st rength and size, such as soccer and biking, and that girls
go for sports that require flexibility and grace, such as figure
skating and gymnastics. But is there a difference in the types
of sports boys and girls play?

only read when they get to college. I'm studying French,
German, art, and the histories of the world-things I'm
very interested in.

homeschooled kids during our weekly sports games

4 Writing
Write two paragraphs about what you think makes men and
women attract ive and stylish.
60 W"de Angle 2
Images ofbeautyand style are all around us: in movies, on television,
in magazines, and on the Internet. However, what's attractive changes
over time and varies from culture to culture.
What is the ideal bod y shape? In ancient Egypt, beautiful women
were thin and had small waists. In Renaissance Europe (1300-1500),
people thought plump women were very beautiful. And in many
traditional Pacific Island cultures, men find extremely heavy women
very att ractive.
In Sixteenth-century England, the ideal woman had snow-white skin,
red cheeks, and red lips. To make themselves attractive, women wore
very white makeup and painted thei r lips and cheeks bright red. In the
nineteenth century, makeup went out of fashion. Queen Victoria said
it was "impolite" to wear makeup. By the 1940s, makeup was back in
fashion-but snow-white skin was out. Suntans were glamorous.
Some cultures have very speci al ideas of beauty. For the Padaung of
Burma, a very long neck is beautiful on a woman. Girls from the age
of fiveor six wear metal rings arou nd their necks. As thei r necks grow,
more rings are added.
In the traditional Maori culture of New Zealand, tattoos made a
man attractive. Men tattooed their faces and much of their bodies .
The tattoos were "body art" and gave information about the man's
family and position in society. Long, healthy hair
on a man also made him handsome.
In western countries today, some people think
tattoos and body piercings are attractive. While some
men and women get small tattoos , others get tattoos
all over their bodies. Piercing is al a stylish, and
not just on the ears. Some people have piercings on
thei r eyebrows, nose , lips, or tongues .
What do you think makes a
person attracti e:

A. What do you think the expression "Laugh and the world laughs with you" means?
Do you agree?
B. ~ Read along as you listen.
All over the world, groups
of people meet early
each morning for one
reason: to laugh. But what
makes them so happy?
There are no funny stories
or comedians- everyone
just laughs. At first, the laughter
is forced. But after a few minutes, the laughter
becomes real and fun . Are these people crazy?
That 'sexactly the reaction Dr. Madan Kataria got
when he asked some people at a park in Mumbai,
India, where he lives, to start a laughter club with
him. Four of those people somehow agreed, and
they laughed with Dr. Kataria in one corner of the
park. The small group of five quickly grew to fifty.
Before long, the Laughter Club spread all over the
Why a laughter club? When Dr. Kataria was
younger, he used to enjoy reading the section
"Laughter, the Best Medicine" in the magazine
Reader's Digest.During his research as a doctor,
he learned the many health benefits of laughter,
so he thought,"lf laughter is so good, why not
start a laughter club?"
What are the benefits of laughter? Various
studies show that laughter has a positive effect

on the body. It helps remove the negative
effects of stress, and it is an important element
for maintaining good health. Some doctors use
laughter therapy to help their patients feel better.
Children can laugh up to 300 times a day, but as
they become adults, most of the laughter stops.
Dr. Kataria also observed that people from the
countryside laugh easily and often. He himself
used to laugh a lot when he was a kid, but he no
longer laughs as much as an
adult.This is true for most
people as they get older:They
laugh less. Why is this so?And
what kinds of people find it
hardest to laugh?
It seems that educated and
successful people like doctors,
scientists, journalists, and
CEOs of companies find it
very hard to laugh. It must
be because they are too
busy and have too much
responsibility to laugh at little
things. Does this mean that
successand wealth do not
guarantee happiness? What
do you think?

GROUPS. Discuss: What kind of people seem
to laugh a lot? What kind of people seem to

A: Yeah. Mrs. Darren always looks serious.

The Three ·Wishes

ONCE upon a time, there lived
a poor man with a pretty wife. One
winter night, while they were sitting
by the fire, they were talking about
their rich neighbors. Their neighbors
were happy because they could
buy anything they wanted. The
wife said, "l wish there were a good
fairy right now to give us whatever
we wanted." The husband said he
was thinking the very same thing. At that instant, a very beautiful
woman appeared in the room. She said, "I am a fairy. I promise to
give you anything you ask for. But think carefully. You have only
three wi shes." Then she disappeared.
The wife told her husband, "Personally, I'd ask to be beautiful
and rich." But the husband said, "Being beautiful and rich is
useless if you get sick and you die. Let's ask for good health and a
long life. " "But," said the wife, "what's the purpose of a long life
if you're very poor?We would be miserable for a long time!" "All
right," the husband said. "Let's think about this some more."
While he was talking, his wife put more firewood on the fire
because it was a very cold night. Shesaid to her husband, "This
is such a nice fire. I wish we had sausages to cook on this fire for
supper." Before she could finish her sentence, down came a long
link of sausages from the chimney. The husband angrily shouted,
"Now we only have two wishes left! I wish those sausages would
stick to your nose!" And then it happened. The sausages got stuck
to the wife's nose. The wife screamed because she couldn't take
the sausages off her nose. There was only one wish left. The man
and his wife argued about the third wish-to ask for riches or for
the sausages to disappear? While they were arguing, the woman
ran toward the window. She wanted to jump out of the window
because she couldn't live with the sausages that were hanging
from her nose. The man loved his wife so much and couldn't live
without her, so he said, "Stop, my clear wife. All right. You make
the last wish." The wife wished for the sausages to drop off, and the
sausages fell to the floor. Both husband and wife were very happy.
They reali zed that they didn't need riches or a long life. They were
happy the way they were because they loved each other.

5. What are the advantages of talking with
other parents about summer activities?
All of us parents face the same issues every summer. Our children
don't realize that "just hanging out" is fun only for a short time.
My fourteen-year-old plans to just "hang out" this summer. I work
full-time, so I can't supervise my son during the day. If he has
nothing to do for the entire summer, I worry that he'll get into trouble.
If I leave him alone, he'll do nothing but watch TV, listen to music all
day, or hang out with his friends. My son has several interests. He
loves sports and music. But if I talk to him about making plans for
the summer, he'll tell me to leave him alone. What should I do?
Worried Mom
Worried Mom, i.f your son has a close friend , you might
suggest to the friend 's parents that your children do an
activity together. This strategy always works with my
children. Try it.
Summer's almost here-time for the yearly argument with my
daughter. The issue: What should she do during the long summer
vacation? My daughter likes to "go with the flow," her exact words.
If I make plans for her, she'll say I'm a control freak. But if I wait for
her to make the decisions, she might end up facing a long, useless
summer, and she'll get terribly bored. Help!
Frustrated Dad
Frustrated Dad, you might want to try talking to other
parents. That might give you ideas for summer activities.
Your daughter might decide to do some of those activities
with her friends. Plus, if she realizes that her friends won't
be at home during the vacation. she will want to plan
things with you. Good luck!

over 60miles per hour.
Sepak takraw is aMalaysian game that people play allover Southeast Asia. It's similar to
volleyball, but players can't touch the ball with their hands or arms. Instead, they must use
their feet, legs, and lower body tohitthe ball and keep it from touching the ground.There
are three players on each team and they get three chances totrytosend the ball over the net,
which is 5feet high. To do this, players often do a360-degree turn in the air. The opposing team
tries toblock the ball with their legs and feet. The game is fast, fun, and exciting-in fact, the
rattan ball can reach speeds ofover 60 miles per hour!
In the frozen Arctic North, reindeer racing is asport ofskill and speed. We think ofreindeer
as the cute animals that pull Santa's sled. In fact, they are very strong animals that can survive
extremely low temperatures and can reach running speeds of60 miles per hour. In Siberia, the
