In a famous story, a young boy called Ali Baba says “Open Sesame” and a door to treasures is opened before him. Ma Yun drew inspiration from this and founded Alibaba.com.
Over 14 years, Alibaba.com has become China’s largest e-commerce (电子商务) website. E-commerce is the 1.a of buying and selling goods and services and doing other business activities using a computer and the Internet. However, the founder chose to leave and to discover new areas of business. On May 28, Ma became chairman of Cainiao Network Technology Co., Ltd.The company will set up China Smart Logistics (物流) Network. Its goal is to deliver packages (运送包裹) to people anywhere in the country2. w 24 hours.
The 48-year-old businessman, who is short and thin and often wears oversized suits, always had he courage to dream big and try new things.
Ma got the idea or starting a business career in 1995. He was then working for a US trading company as a translator, when he was introduced to the Internet. He 3.s the word "beer" and saw that no data came up about Chinese products(产品).
Ma had an idea: why not build a large Internet market to connect(连接)consumers and companies from all over the world and do business 4.o ?

But the most important thing is that we believed in our dream from day one, to today and tomorrow Of course we made many mistakes, but we never gave up hope."
He was just an ordinary postman. Day after day, he shuttled(穿梭) back and forth across the village. For him, life
was without waves.
One day, he was delivering mail as usual. When he looked up in the sky, he suddenly lost his balance. It was a little stone that tripped him up（绊倒）. He observed the stone that had embarrassed（难堪） him, finding it strange but beautiful. In his eyes, this stone was like a lost jewel（宝石） covered with dust. The postman then placed the stone in his bag carefully. Because of this stone’s arrival, his day was lightened. He suddenly had a bold thought—I can build a castle with such beautiful stones. How magnificent it will be!
His ordinary life started to be different since then. He still delivered mail, but he collected every stone he could find along the way. All those dusty stones, in his eyes, glittered like diamonds.
Gradually, his small bag couldn’t hold his stones anymore and he needed to use a wheelbarrow to carry them. People didn’t understand what happened when they saw the postman delivering letters with a wheelbarrow full of stones.
After collecting enough stones, he started to build his castle. During the daytime, he passed along the dreams of others; and during the nighttime, he built his own dream. No one was willing to join in. But the postman was unmoved, still happily building his castle. Because he knew, the dream and the castle only belonged to him.
After 20 years of working day and night, the postman’s dream castle was finally completed. It was a magnificent castle just as he had imagined. It was a miracle arising from the ordinary.

What is it like being a film star? What is it like n front of the camera? Students from Steamboat Spring Middle School in the US could tell you exactly what it’s like. They recently got a taste of the life of a star.
A local movie company wanted to produce a film. All the actors in this film were to be students. Fourteen students were chosen from the school. The film, called Ruby vs Wolfgang, was based on the story of little Red Riding Hood(小红帽). It came with a twist(改变), however—the story was told from the perspective(看法) of the wolf.
Zoe Walsh, a seventh-grader, signed up to do behind- the- scenes work. But she soon found herself in front of the camera instead. She played a strange middle school student in the film.
“It is just for fun,” she told the Steamboat Today. “Just pretending that you’re someone else.”
But there were also difficulties. It was very cold during shooting. Students had to put up with snow and icy wind.
Lack(缺乏) of experience was another problem. The director Michael Staley said he tried to “help each student bring out the wolf —or Whatever animal they representing—in themselves”
Erus Harrington, an eighth—grader, said he played a “nice, silly British guy”. He learned the British accent(口音) all at home.
“I just a kind of taught myself how to do it by watching videos,” he said “It makes me feel good after I do it because I’m proud of myself.”
The students will watch themselves on the big screen for the first time during the film festival at a local high school in May.
“I’m probably going to laugh at myself,” said Zach, the brother of Zoe.
