Time is something that we all are taking for granted these days. We spend hours watching TV or playing mobile games, thinking that this is just normal. I find this a waste of time. 【1】 Every second is valuable and we should rethink of ways of spending our time.
Firstly, spend time in doing things that really matter. Spend time with your family and friends. Enjoy a nice hot meal and eat it slowly. Give yourself time to play and spend enough time in sleeping. 【2】But the truth is the little things matter most in life.
Secondly, you have to know what is done cannot be undone. Do not allow your mind to stay in the past. Every day is a new adventure. 【3】It may not be an opportunity like an immediate get-rich chance, but it may be an opportunity for new experiences.
【4】If you have only one chance to do something for someone, why not do it to the best of your ability It should not matter whether you are being rewarded or not. You will take pride in your work because you’ve done your best. Trust me, quality efforts will be rewarded in time.
Lastly, every moment you spend in doing things is the time taken from your life. Don’t waste your time away working day and night just for money. 【5】The value of your time is measured by how you spend it and whom you choose to spend it with.
A. You will get whatever you want from working.
B. Spend more time on the important tasks instead of time-wasters.
C. Do your best in every task as if the world will end tomorrow
D. That is not your life’s worth.
E. It is hours of our lives that we can never get back.
F. Little things like this may seem meaningless.
G. You have to keep your eyes and ears open to the new opportunity.

You have just won ten million yuan in a lottery (彩票) - how would you spend it Before you know it, ten minutes had gone on daydreaming.There is a time and a place for daydreaming, but we don't have much control over that.Isn't it worrying that an estimated 30 to 50 percent of our waking time is spent daydreaming What if your dentist is having that lottery daydream while removing your rotten tooth
Some studies suggest daydreaming makes us unhappy because we are not focusing on what is around us but are instead thinking about the past or future.However, a recent study published in the journal Neuropsychologica finds that mind-wandering can be of benefit to us.The researchers measured the brain patterns of more than 100 people using an MRI (核磁共振成像) scanner.This data was compared with tests on creative ability and a questionnaire on how much their minds usually wandered.Those whose minds wandered the most scored higher in creative ability tests and had more efficient brain systems measured in the MRI machine.
Being efficient at mind-wandering means you can zone out and then naturally switch back in without missing any important point or step. Christine Godwin, the lead author of the latest study from the Georgia Institute of Technology, says that if you are focusing on difficult tasks, your performance will drop if your mind wanders. “But when tasks are easy, people who have high cognitive ability can let their minds wander because it does not affect their performance. You may be thinking about upcoming goals or problem-solving. These are some of the positive sides to mind-wandering.”
Mind-wandering can vary between being more practical or more emotional. What mind-wandering seems to be best at, researchers say, is coming up with new solutions to old problems. So, it's not always a waste of time!

The San Francisco Giants added a special pitcher(投球手)for the day. It was small—yet fierce—Hailey Dawson, who has a 3D-printed hand.
The energetic 8-year-old from Nevada was invited to throw out the first pitch at the Giants game on Sunday. Dawson was born with Poland syndrome(综合症), a disorder in which affected inpiduals are born with missing or underdeveloped muscles on one side of the body. It affected her hand.
With a traditional prosthetic(假肢)potentially costing thousands of dollars, Hailey’s mom, Yong Dawson turned to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for help. She emailed UNLV engineering, and they accepted the challenge. Brendan O’Toole, chairman of the mechanical engineering department, said he and his team had got a lot of requests, “but this one was different.” They got to work using a 3D-printer.Several prototypes(原型)and fittings later, Dawson got her first hand about four years ago.
Hailey’s mother said the hand had given her daughter a wonderful lift. “When she puts this robotic hand on, it changes her personality and confidence level,” Yong Dawson told CBS San Francisco. “I love seeing that. I just wanted her to have an even playing field.”
When she arrived at AT&T Park on Sunday, Hailey got to hang out with players in the shelter at the side of the sports field. They even let her try on their World Series rings.
Using her 3D-printed hand, Dawson threw out the perfect first pitch. Then with a wave and a smile, she headed into the stands to cheer on her newfound friends on the Giants.
【1】What caused the function loss of Hailey’s hand
A. A serious brain disorder. B. A born physical problem.
C. An awful game accident. D. An unexpected infection.
【2】Why did Yong Dawson ask the University of Nevada for help
A. She couldn’t find a suitable hospital.
B. She knew it had the advanced 3D-printer.
C. She couldn’t afford a traditional prosthetic.
D. She was forced to accept the tough challenge.
【3】What is Hailey’s mother’s attitude towards the 3D-printed hand
A. Skeptical. B. Positive.
C. Ambiguous. D. Cautious.
【4】Which of the following is the best title for the text
A. Mother’s love makes a huge difference
B. A talented young pitcher gets a great future
C. The 3D-printing technology is changing our life
D. A girl with a3D-printed hand throws her first pitch
