Ben Carson, a doctor at Johns Hopkins Children's Center, talks about how he grew up in a poor Detroit neighborhood, where peer (同龄人)pressure almost controlled his behavior and even his clothes. He wanted so badly to be considered cool that he begged his mother to buy him an expensive Italian shirt.
"My mother made me a deal," Carson remembers. "She said, ' I'll give you all the money I make next week. You'll be in charge of the family finances--buying food and other necessities and paying the bills. Whatever you have left over you can spend on whatever you want. ' "
"I thought,this is going to be great," Carson says. "I bought things we needed most and then began going through the bills. Of course ! ran completely out of money long before everything was paid. "
"Then I realized my mother,with her third-grade education, was a financial genius (理财能手)--just to keep food on our table and clothes on our backs with such a small sum of money. I'd been a fool. I wanted her to buy me a $ 75 shirt when she only took home $100 a week, cleaning other people's floors and washing their toilets. I took a hard look at my behavior and wondered why I could be so selfish. "
"I started studying again. My grades went back up to As. Some of my peers laughed at me because I did not follow their pattern. But ! refused to let that trouble me, because I had a goal. "

Edmund Halley was an English scientist who lived over 200 years ago. He studied the observa-tions of comets (彗星), which other scientists had made. Calculating the orbit(轨道) of one particu-lar comet was a very difficult mathematical problem. He could not figure it out. Neither could other scientists who dealt with such problems.
However, Halley had a friend named Newton, who was a brilliant mathematician. Newton thought he had already worked out that problem, but he could not find the papers on which he had done it.
He told Halley that the orbit of a comet had the shape of an ellipse(椭圆形).
Now Halley set to work. He figured out the orbits of some of the comets that had been observed by scientists. He made a surprising discovery. The comets that appeared in the years 1531,1607, and 1682 all had the same orbit. Yet their appearances had been 75 to 76 years apart.
This seemed very strange to Halley. Three different comets followed the same orbit. The more Halley thought about it, the more he thought that there had not been three different comets, as people thought. He decided that they had simply seen the same comet three times. The comet had gone away and had come back again.
It was an astonishing idea! Halley felt certain enough to make a prediction of what would hap-pen in the future. He decided that this comet would appear in the year 1758. There were 53 years to go before Halley's prediction could be tested.
In 1758 the comet appeared in the sky. Halley did not see it,for he had died some years before.
Ever since then that comet had been called Halley's comet,in his honour.

Some villagers were going to celebrate an important wine festival(酒宴) in a few days' time, so they borrowed a huge barrel from the nearest town, put it in the village square, and decided that each of them should empty a bottle of the best wine he had into it, so that there should be plenty at the feast(宴会).
One of the villagers thought he would be very clever. "If I pour a bottle of water in, instead of wine, no one will notice it," he said to himself, "because there will be so much excellent wine in the barrel that the water will be lost in it. "

In the eighteenth century, cities became larger and larger. People moved from the countryside and small towns to the cities because there was more work for them to do in the cities.
On Sundays and holidays, they liked to leave the cities and have a good time in the countryside.
But not every family had a horse or a wagon ( 马车). People needed a simpler means of transportation (交通工具). Inventors in many countries tried to solve this problem.
The first bicycle, which was very simple, appeared in 1790. People called it "the horse on wheel". Then in 1861, after many improvements being made, the bicycle became a practical means of transportation.
