There was a little boy who had a bad temper（脾气）．His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must drive a nail into the back of the fence．
The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence．Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails driven daily gradually went down．He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence．
Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all．He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper．
The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone．The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence．He said: "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence．The fence will never be the same．When you say things in anger, they leave a wound just like this one．You can put a knife in a man and draw it out, but it will also leave a wound．It won't matter how many times you say sorry, it is still there．An oral wound is as bad as a physical one．"

CHINESE basketball fans sit down in front of their TVs to watch NBA games usually for one reason: They have Yao Ming in them．
Now, Europeans will have their own reason to watch the games too: The young level-headed （头脑冷静的） Italian player Andrea Bargnani will be playing soon．
Bargnani, who was born in 1985, became this year's top NBA draft in June．He's the first European player ever to do this．You will be able to watch his cool play for the Toronto Raptors （多伦多猛龙队） this coming NBA season．

On the court, he's got the name "magician"．He makes good three-point shots and isn't shy to show it．"He is truly beautiful to watch, he is fast and coordinated," said Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird after he watched his play last year．
For the NBA, Bargnani, who played for the Italian team Benetton Treviso, has to learn to get into another culture．
"Changes don't scare me much．But it's really another world, another culture and a different type of basketball," he said．
The boy also knows the direction of his hard work．
"I need to work on all areas．One of the most important things is staying focused（焦点） all game long．I'm trying to become stronger and quicker, too．I try to take it step by step," Bargnani said．

Something to consider next time you go shopping for lipstick（口红）．
This comes from someone who works in the breast cancer unit at Mt．Sinai Hospital, in Toronto．From: Dr．Nahid Neman．
If there is a female you care anything about, share this with her．I did !!!!! I am also sharing this with the males on my email list, because they need to tell the females THEY care about as well!

As we know, most of the material things in our daily life have to be bought with money．But money is not all powerful．Money can't buy many things such as time and true love．
There are 24 hours in a day．Sometimes when we are very happy, we wish that the period of happiness would last longer．But no matter what we do, or how much money we are willing to pay, we cannot make a day last longer than 24 hours．On the other hand, when we are unhappy, money cannot make the unhappy time pass away more quickly．True love is another thing which money cannot buy．Suppose we have someone who really loves us very much．Once he dies, he can give us no more love．Can our money raise him from death and make him love us as before? Here we can see very clearly that money cannot buy us love．Money can buy us diamond things, beautiful clothes, but never time and love．So money, after all, is not all powerful

Today my classmates and I went to Hongxin Farm for a wonderful eco-travel．
First, I got up at 6:30 and we set off by bus．On the bus, we had a good time singing and enjoying the beautiful scenery．Then two hours later, we arrived at the gate of the farm, where the farmers were waiting to give us a warm welcome．After we were shown around the big farm, we began to plant trees．It was really a good way to get close to nature and protect the environment at the same time．Next, we had a picnic and it was great fun to eat in the open air．Finally, we were on the way back．Although we were all very tired, our eco-travel was really unforgettable．
