Daphne got an e-mail from her brother, Steven.

Daphne,

You're very busy these days. I called you several times, but no one answered. Are you still working at your office at 10 o'clock at night?

Next Sunday is Dad's birthday. I want to give him a fantastic present, but fantastic things are usually too expensive for a poor student like me. I'll be very happy if you can help me. I think Dad will be glad to get a radio as a birthday present, and the kind of radio I'd like to give him is the most fashionable one, Mini 3388. It is very small, convenient and will be very useful for Dad. What do you think?

I know you don't have time to find a good present for Dad. So I'll go to buy the radio, and you just pay the bill next weekend when you come back home.

It was late. I was too hungry to sleep, so I put on my jacket and went downstairs to a coffee shop to get some food. A cute little dog was standing at the door. It looked friendly. I stopped to play with it and I thought it liked me. "Does it have a home?" I wondered. So I decided to ask the clerk whose dog it was. I thought if the dog didn't have an owner, I might take it home and take care of it. "It's my dog," said the young girl. "She's waiting for me to finish my work. She worries and barks a lot if she doesn't see me at night, so I let her stay here with me."

Weight control is very popular these days. People hope to become thin quickly. Some even take medicine without a doctor's prescription. But reports show that although many of them do lose weight, they soon gain it back or gain even more.

So how can you safely control your weight? Diet and exercise are the answers. Eat only when you are hungry and eat only food that is good for your health. Never just stop eating; doing so can make you feel even hungrier, and you will eat more. Also, it is better to prepare your own food instead of eating out. And think about changing your lifestyle. For example, turn off the TV and the computer and get some exercise every day. But remember: Don't be too strict with yourself. Give yourself some time to find the best way to control your weight.
