Taiwanese Bian-dang in Manhattan, New York City

5/30/2014 by Eva Schmidt

During lunch time, on 53rd Street, you’ll see a long line of people in front of a Taiwanese food truck for their “bian-dang,” a Taiwanese word forlunch box.On the menu you can find fried chicken with rice, pork dumplings, tea eggs, and other popular Taiwanese dishes.

The owners of the food truck are Thomas and Diana Yang, two Taiwanese-Americans. This brother-sister team started their business in 2009. Back then, there were a few Taiwanese restaurants in the city and several thousand food trucks, but the Yangs were the first to sell Taiwanese food on a food truck.

At first, business was slack. People thought they were just another Chinese food truck, and the food truck’s name, “Cravings,” often made people think of desserts, not lunch. Few people would stop by and try their food.I couldn’t even give away free food,” said Thomas. To catch people’s eye, they painted their truck blue, and drew Taiwan’s national flower, the plum blossom, on it. They also changed the food truck’s name to “bian-dang.” Soon people started to notice them, and business finally got better. Now on a good day, they can sell about 150 bian-dangs in about two hours.

So what’s next for Thomas and Diana? Well, they hope one day there will be a block with Taiwanese food in the city, just like there is a Chinatown, a Korea Town, and a Little Italy. And their bian-dang food truck might just help to make that happen.

This is a letter by Selena Bieber to the students in her school.

Later Is Better!

Selena Bieber
Northville High School

Do you feel it’s hard to get up early for school and even harder to listen well in the first class at 8 a.m.? Well, this happens to most of us and is not helpful for our learning!

Some studies show that teenagers’ brains make melatonin, the hormone that helps sleep, between 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. So it’s better for us to sleep during these nine hours. But here comes the problem. We’re asked to get to school by 7:30 a.m. That means we have to get up before 7, when our brains should still be sleeping. That’s why we’re always so tired and can’t think clearly in early morning classes. No clear head, no good learning, right?

If we can’t change how our body works, why can’t school start later? In this way, we can not only sleep more but also learn better!

brain 大腦
hormone 荷爾蒙
What problem is Selena Bieber trying to fix?
High school lessons are too difficult.
Classes start too early in the morning.
Too many students are late for school.
Lunch break is too short for taking a rest.
What can we learn from the letter?
Too much melatonin can hurt teenagers’ brain.
The brain stops making melatonin after 11 p.m.
Sleeping longer helps the body make more melatonin.
It is easier to fall asleep when the brain is making melatonin
Below is some information from another study.

We studied 48 high school students and found that the students who went to bed earlier did better on their school tests. This is not only true for those who slept nine hours, but also true for those who slept less. And some of them agreed that they learned better in early morning classes.

Do the ideas in Selena Bieber’s letter agree with the information?
Yes, because her letter says it is better to sleep from 11 p.m. to 8 a.m.
Yes, because her letter says getting up early is not helpful for learning.
No, because her letter says students are asked to get to school by 7:30 a.m.
No, because her letter says teenagers’ brains do not work well in early morning classes.

Kivalina, an island village in Alaska, USA, is known by only a few people. It cannot be found on most maps of Alaska because it is only 10 km2 . This small Arctic village is home to 400 Inuit people*. However, their home will become uninhabitable because the island could be covered by the Chukchi Sea by 2025. These Inuit people will have to leave their home.

But life now is already difficult. Over the past twenty years, winters have become warmer, the Arctic ice has kept melting, and the sea has been rising. These changes have made it harder to live by hunting and fishing than before. What’s worse, there is no Arctic ice thick enough to keep them safe from terrible wind and rain.

These Inuit people think it is the oil and power companies in Alaska that have brought all these troubles, but they are the ones who are paying the price. It would cost hundreds of millions to move their village, and they have no idea where to get the money. Groups like ReLocate are working together with the Inuit people to save Kivalina, but nobody is sure if their hard work will come to anything. All the Inuit people can do now is to pray the rising sea will not cover their home too soon.

* The Inuit people are a group of people who live in the Arctic.

After a lot of tests and interviews, you finally got into a good school or got a good job. But there’s a problem: it’s a long way from home.Well, I can take the bus or drive,” you might think. But before you decide whether it’s OK to have such a long commute, it’s best to know 35.

Having a long commute means you’ll get fewer hours of sleep, and that’ll make you feel tired easily. You’ll also have less time for friends and family, for exercise, or for a nice meal.

A long commute not only eats up your time but also 36. Studies show that people who have a long commute get fat easily and often have neck or back problems. It’s easier for them to have heart problems too. 37. Studies find that these people get angry more often, feel less happy with their lives, and do less well at work.

Now, does that good school or that good job still sound good to you?

NOlympics in Munich


People in the city of Munich have spoken their mind: they do not want to host the Winter Olympics in 2022. To the cities that fight for this chance, 38. The Olympics usually do a lot of good to the host city. The Games bring in jobs, visitors, and, most important of all, money. So why did people in Munich say no?

The Olympics 39 for people in Munich. For them, the world’s biggest sports festival could invite serious trouble. There would be a lot of building work before the Games, and during the Games, too much traffic and too many visitors. Life would become terrible and nature would be hurt. And 40: Munich hosted the 1972 Summer Olympics, and its neighbor, the mountain town Garmisch-Partenkirchen, hosted the 1936 Winter Olympics.

Still, the heavy price Munich paid does not worry the cities that are in the race to get the 2022 Winter Olympics. 41 , they are happy that Munich said no to the Olympics—their chances of getting the Games have become higher.

this is surely a surprise
this sounds like a good idea
this is perhaps a smart answer
this is old news they have heard
had given hopes
are a different story
bring a bright future
have been a great plan
this will not go away; it will stay
they are not just saying it; they are going to do it
they do not speak for others; they only speak for themselves
this is not a guess; it is a lesson they learned from hard experience
In fact
If so
