After a serious earthquake (地震) happened a father left his wife safely at home and rushed to his son’s school only to find that the building where his son studied had collapsed and looked like a pancake.

   He was shocked. He didn’t know what he should do for a while then he remembered the words he had said to his son “No matter what happens I’ll always be there for you!” And tears began to fill his eyes. He started digging through the ruins (废墟).

   As he was digging other helpless parents and the firemen arrived and tried to pull him off the ruins saying “It’s too late! They’re all dead! There’s nothing you can do !” To them he replied “Are you going to help me now?” And then he kept on digging.

  No one helped however. He went on alone because he needed to know for himself “Is my boy alive or he is dead?” He dug for eight hours…12 hours… 24 hours …36 hours …then in the 39th hour he pulled back a rock and heard his son’s words. He shouted his son’s name “ARMAND!” He heard back “Dad! It’s me Dad! I told the other kids not to worry. I told them that if you were alive you’d save me and when you saved me they’d be saved. You promised ‘No matter what happens I’ll always be there for you!’ You did it Dad!” “What’s going on there? How is it?” the father asked.

   “There are 14 of us left out of 33 Dad. We’re frightened hungry thirsty and thankful you’re here. When the building fell down it made a triangle (三角) and it saved me.”

   “Come out boy!”

   “No Dad! Let the other kids out first because I know you’ll get me! No matter what happens I know you’ll always be there for me!”

Foggy weather (雾霾天气) always makes people uncomfortable. When it comes to our health it becomes more dangerous. When winter comes we see a lot of foggy days in North China. The air is very bad for our health. The government decided to fight air pollution until the end. On December 5th the Ministry of Environment Protection made a plan for cutting down air pollution for the coming years. According to this plan China tries to cut the PM 2.5 pollution at least 5 % by 2015 in 117 cities. Human activities are the biggest reason of the PM 2.5 pollution especially like motor vehicle emissions (机动车排放物).

   Health experts say that smaller particles (颗粒) are far more dangerous and may get bad results on hearts and other important parts of our bodies. They can not be stopped in our nose so they can travel into our bodies.

   "The beginning of the plan is to improve air quality and solve the PM 2.5 problem. This problem has a bad result to many people" said Zhao Hualin who works for the ministry. He added that the key point is to protect (保护) people's health.

   To finish the five-year-plan China will use clean energy (清洁能源). At the same time the country will use more city buses and subways to control the number of new cars.

You may have heard of the famous saying, East or west, home is the best.

What does the word home mean to you? How do you say the word in French? In Chinese? In your language? Although people usually know what the word means, it sometimes has no exact translation. Its not surprising, because the idea of home is different from country to country and from person to person. A home is more than a roof and four walls. Its the cooking ,eating, talking, playing and sleeping that go on inside. And at home you usually feel safe and relaxed.

Homes look different in different countries. They also have different things inside. For example, in cold northern Europe, theres a fire in the living room or kitchen and all the chairs face it, In the south, where the sun shines a lot and its more important to keep the heat out, there are small windows and cool stone floors.

We asked some people about their homes.

How often do people move house in your country?

In my country many people dont stay in one place for a very long time. They often move every ten years or so.

                                                             ------Cheryl, Boston, USA

What are the features of homes in your country?

In Britain, even in town, theres always a garden. We have separate bedrooms and living rooms. But we dont often have balconies. The weather isnt warm enough!

When I arrived in the US, I felt very sad because life in the US was different from life in my country. My first day of school was at Takoma Park Middle School in March last year. I was very nervous in that morning and I didn’t want to get up. When I went to my first class, I didn’t know what to do because I didnt know what the teacher said. But there were many people who spoke the same language as me, while some of them were laughing at me, because they came before me and they understood the language better than me.

But there were three girls who helped me. Their names are Maryori, Jezabel and Beverly. As the days passed, I had some new friends and Beverly became my best friend. She always helped me with my study.

Three months later, the school year ended and I had to come to Blair High School. On my first day of school at Blair, I felt it was different from my first day in middle school because it was a beginning of a new school year and there were many new students. I felt better because I knew that I wasnt the only new student.

That day I met new friends. For some of them it was their first time at school in the US, so I tried to help them because I knew how new students feel when they go to a new school.
