A heavy snowfall covered the ground of the nursing home as I pulled into the parking lot. On Saturday mornings the facility was quieter, without all the office personnel and sales sentatives. I enjoyed weekends and liked working as the charge nurse here. My Big Boys，as I called them, were sitting there watching TV. I loved the stories these retired men of various occupations told. There were and businessmen alike enjoying the questions I asked them about their youths. My question that day was, "Did you like to play in the snow when you were young?"

Harper Lee (1926-2016) was an American novelist widely known for To Kill a Mockingbird( published in 1960) , which won the 1961 Pulitzer Prize and has become a classic of modern American literature. The 1962 film adaptation starring Gregory Peck won three Academy Awards.
For decades, the book was Lee's only major work of published fiction, but it was hugely influential for generations of US readers. It has sold more than 10 million copies, and is one of the most widely taught novels in US schools. In 2007 Lee was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her contribution to literature.
Lee wanted to live a simple life and was never comfortable with the attention the novel won her, and she practically disappeared from public life after it appeared. The world, however, continued waiting for a new novel from her, and on occasion she hinted that she had a story in progress.
In 2015, a book did come out. Go Set a Watchman was more of a first draft, featuring Scout, the young girl who was the main character of To Kill a Mockingbird. Go Set a Watchman tells a story of Scout as an adult. Accusations arose that the 89-year-old Lee was not able to consent to(赞成) the manuscript' s release, and that various patties had signed on her behalf.
Though Lee moved in 1949 to New York, she spent many years guarding her privacy in Monroeville, which served as clear inspiration for the setting in To Kill a Mockingbird.
In 2007, Lee suffered a stroke, but recovered and later settled in Monroeville permanently to care for her sister, Alice, who died in 2014. She was said to eat breakfast every morning at the same fast-food spot, and was friendly with her neighbors. Like the countless Americans knew her only through her work, they will undoubtedly miss her.

Nearly two-thirds of U. S. households, or 80 million homes, have pets and Americans spent more than $60 billion on them last year, according to the American Pet Products Association. "The number of pets in the world is growing extremely fast and that opens up the market,"said Peter Harrop, chairman of IDTechEx, a technology market research firm. "I' m sure five years from now there will be all sorts of things we can't imagine. "
Already, there are devices that let your pets call you (PetChatz) , play games and win treats when they're home alone (CleverPet) and even speak with a human voice (Petspeak).
The Petzi TreatCam lets Anne Ryan check on her dogs Oscar and Reggie at her Berkeley home when she' s working in San Francisco or traveling out of state. The Internet-connected device lets her see her dogs, talk to them, take photos and even dispense(分发) treats-using an app on her phone. "I turn it on, get to see them, get to talk to them and it changes my mood, and puts me back in a positive frame, "said Ryan said. " I didn't know that I needed it , but now I don't think that I could live without it. "
The Petzi TreatCam was created by San Jose-based Petzila, which was founded by two veteran technology executives who wanted to get their pets online. The startup also created a social media app that lets owners share pet photos.
Whistle, a new San Francisco company, sells the Pet Tracker that alerts owners when their pets have left their" safe zone" and helps find them if they get lost. The device also lets owners track how much exercise and sleep their animals are getting.
But as more pet-tech gadgets come to market, experts caution owners against relying on them too much. " The technology can be useful as an adjunct(附属物) , a way of enriching your relationship with your pet, but certainly not a substitute for time spent with your dog," said Pamela Wyman, who runs the DogEvolve training school in Oakland. 高考英语模拟试题库

Furthermore, she 47 a girl to be my translator and buddy (伙伴) , giving me the 48 to form friendships by breaking down language barriers.
Best of all, she understood my 49 and helped me to work on my weaknesses.

With her continual 55 , I grew from a frustrated, English-challenged child to someone who loved to read, write, and 56 social activities. Soon, even without a translator, I was able to 57 with my classmates confidently and be proud of my progress at school.

The Suma Aqualife Park in Japan is no stranger to turtle traffic. Every summer, hundreds of turtles make 61 (they) way to and from the nearby ocean. While most manage to cover the short 62 (distant) , a handful are stuck inside the railway tracks that lie between the ocean and 63 popular park.
According to the local officials, as the turtles are trying to cross the tracks, a few fall in. Unable to climb out, they start to walk along the track. The problem arises when a 64 (trap) turtle is close to a railroad switch 65 is in process of shifting to accommodate an incoming train.
To save the precious animals, the officials teamed up 66 some engineers to create "turtle" tunnels. The tunnels provide a place for the turtles 67 (slip) into and protect them. They also help prevent costly train delays that occur every time a turtle gets caught in the switch.
Since the tunnels 68 ( create) in April, railway personnel have scooped up (舀取) ten turtles from the tunnels and 69 (safe) delivered them to the park. 70 Naoki Kamezaki, the head of the park puts it, saving the turtles is a "refreshing feeling".
