Josh: Do you know aboutpay it forward coffeeat Flora Café?

Eric: You mean you pay for a cup of coffee for someone poor to have it later?

Josh: Yeah. A cup of coffee is not much, but on cold winter days like today, it might warm them up a little. And maybe their hearts too.

Eric: But will Flora Café really give this cup of coffee to someone later?

Josh: Come on. I’ve known the shopkeeper well. He’s an honest man. He’s got a blackboard in the shop that says how many cups are paid for and how many have been given out.

Eric: But how will they know who to give? Anyone can ask for it, even if they’re not poor.

Josh: True, but then I guess they’ll just have to believe in people.

Eric: Perhaps. But will poor people go and ask for a free coffee? Won’t they worry about losing face?

Josh: Why do you always say things like that?

Lonnie said she’ll wear all white to the Christmas party. I said she’s lost her mind. We wear white all the time. Who would still want to wear white on Christmas Eve?

When taking care of his leg, I asked him why he wanted to enter another person’s house, and he said he just wanted to borrow a pot. But Officer Clarke said he’s been borrowing many pots from strangers’ houses.

Forever Takes a Bow

Actor Nathan Lang, 78 years old, died in his sleep last night in his house. Nathan Lang started his acting life in the 1970s. He was most known for playing Justin Maud in Young Hours. The movie made the world swoon over him. Women wanted a husband like him; men wanted a brother like him. Forever Justin, his fans called him. After Young Hours, Nathan Lang was seen in several big movies: Fallen, After Tonight, and Killing Jules. The last one won him a best actor award. In the 1980s, Nathan Lang lost his shine on the big screen. During this time, his movies never entered the top 20 list. Nathan Lang’s last movie was Dreams. Though the movie won him two best actor awards, it did not bring his fans back to the theater.

This Saturday morning, 10 o’clock at St. Peter’s Church, there will be amovie party,” as Lang wished. Friends and family will get together and enjoy once again the good times he brought to the world.

Here are reviews about Nathan Lang’s movies. From the reading, which is most likely a review for Dreams?
review 評論
likely 可能
it became Nathan Lang’s second best-selling movie and also this year’s third best-selling movie in the country and may even get him another best actor award
nothing new in the story; Nathan Lang clearly didn’t do enough homework about his part in the movie. It was no surprise that the movie didn’t make it into the top 10 list the first week it was out
see him not as the actor Nathan Lang anymore but as the poor old man in the movie. However, good acting does not always help with the ticket sales
the story is fresh and interesting, but the acting is not. However, it has been the country’s best-selling movie for the past three weeks. Clearly Nathan Lang’s fans cared less about his acting than his handsome face

In Darayya, a city in Syria, there’s a library, and it has 15,000 books on almost every subject you can think of. However, it is different from any libraries you know: It is a secret underground library, and only people in Darayya know where it is.

Over the years, war has shaken Darayya badly. Every day, houses are bombed and people are killed. Stores are closed one after another, and so are schools. To help the kids in Darayya with their learning, Anas Ahmad, a 19-year-old student, and his friends decided to build a library. They built the library under the ground to keep it safe from bombing. But it is dangerous to collect books for the library. Often, Ahmad and his friends look for books in houses that were bombed. They need to be careful because they may be killed in another bombing.

You may ask, “In a place like Darayya, would people be interested in books?” “Just like the body needs food, the mind needs books,” says one library user. In the library, people enjoy their time of reading and forget about the terrible world above, so their life doesn’t seem so hard. Through reading, they are able to dream of a better life after war.

Wonderland is the hometown of minifishers. Because the winter there is cold, they go to warmer places for the winter and go back home the next spring to have their babies. Every year, hundreds of minifishers visit Starland. They stay there with their families for several months. They usually sleep during the daytime and wake up in the evening to look for food. Small fish are their favorite.

Minifishers were first found in Starland one hundred years ago. Now Starland has become their most important stopping place for the winter. But this could change soon because people in Starland are thinking of building factories near the minifishers' winter home. Minifishers are shy and do not easily change the way they live. Can we do something to help these friends from the sky? Though making money is important, people in Starland should know the lives of other animals are important, too. Let's work together to help them.

I saw this picture in this week’s Time magazine. A photographer named Gregory Heisler sent the picture to Time. The boys in the picture are all wearing different clothes, but they all share the same face. They do not just look like each other. In fact, they are the same person. Heisler ‘madethis funny picture on the computer. But in the future, with the science ofcloning’ (copying living things), a picture like this one may not just be a computer trick.

The idea of cloning began a long time ago. It became real when some animals like frogs were successfully cloned. At first, I didn’t care much about these studies. However, when some studies showed that evenpeoplecould be cloned, I felt the studies had gone too far.

I don’t know much about science, but I do know I would hate to live on a planet full of copies of me. I found myself scared by the smiles of the copied boys when I looked at the picture again. To me, a world of cloned people is a world where the rules of nature are broken, which may bring a lot of problems we’ve never thought of.
