In the early part of his life, Franklin was a businessperson and an inventor. 11 the Pennsylvania Gazette, a newspaper, Franklin also published Poor Richard’s Almanac. It was very popular 12 it made predictions about the future and had wise sayings. Ben Franklin also invented the Franklin stove, bifocals (eyeglasses), and started America’s first library. He was probably best known for his kite experiment 13 electricity from lightning could be controlled and used. At the later stage of his life, Franklin became interested in politics. In 1776, Franklin helped Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence. Two years later, to help the United States become independent from England, Franklin went to France and convinced the French to help America in the war 14 England. After the war, Franklin joined the Continental Congress and signed the Constitution. 15 , he died in 1790. Today, Benjamin Franklin is honored on the 100-dollar bill and his name is honored on highways, schools, and businesses across America. (Source: http://www.mrnussbaum.com/benstory.htm) It is estimated that there are 260 million left-handed people in this right-hander-dominated world. Although some of them are famous and intelligent, most of the left-handers are 16 by the right-handed people. In the Middle Ages, the left-handers were usually 17 using black magic. As time goes by, languages today still contain 18 against left-handers. Examples can be found in the Latin and the French languages. The French word gauche, which means “left”, is used to describe a socially awkward person. The reasons for left-handedness are still unclear. 19 , one thing is for sure—most people don’t pay attention to the special needs for the left-handers. In social situations, left-handers suffer no matter it is at dinner parties or at home. Luckily, some new shops selling stuff to left-handers appear since people sense the potential market. Dr. Brying Bryngelson, a Minnesota psychologist, points out that if it 20 for the parents and the teachers, there would be more left-handed people. (Source: the Time Magazine) If you find it painful to wait in a long but slow-moving line, or if you are often impatient with a co-worker’s progress in completing a task, you may have a so-called “Type A” personality. A trait shared by Type A people is the desire to make effective use of time. They are eager to 21 more in an hour than other people do in a day. A typical example of Type A behavior is the man who built a desk onto the front of his exercise bike. 22 in front of the TV set, he could exercise, watch football, and pay bills all at the same time. Type As often have 23 tolerance for the calmer “Type B” people; Type As feel the Type Bs waste a lot of time. Naturally, Type A people often do well financially, since they always want to achieve the maximum success at whatever they do. Nevertheless, they also 24 from heart disease more often than the more relaxed Type Bs. It seems that the Type As’ great need for success creates a lot of tension 25 causes damage to the body.

Down by the sally gardens my love and I did meet; She passed the sally gardens with little snow-white feet. She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree;But I being young and foolish, with her would not agree. 
                                                                                      In a field by the river my love and I did stand, And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand. She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs; But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.

These investors point out that many involved in the industry could harm future profits if they do not consider carefully the long-term impact of what they are doing. It is essential to build standards into the supply chain of any green fuel project so that there is no negative effect on the surrounding environment and social structures. The report produced by the investors expresses concern that many companies may not be fully aware of the potential pitfalls in the biofuel industry. Production of corn and soy beans has increased greatly in the past few years as an eco-friendly alternative to fossil fuels. However, environmental and human rights supporters are worried that this will lead to destruction of rainforests. Food prices could also go up as there is increased competition for crops as both foodstuffs and sources of fuel. Recently, the United Nations warned that biofuels could have dangerous side effects. They also said that steps need to be taken to make sure that land transformed to grow biofuels does not damage the environment or cause local people’s dissatisfaction. There is already great concern about palm oil, used in many foods besides being an important biofuel, as rainforests are being cleared in some countries and people are forced to move away from their homes to create palm oil farms. A report says that biofuels are not a cure for climate change but they can play their part to help the environment as long as governments and companies can manage the social and environmental impacts thoroughly. There should also be greater measures taken to increase efficiency and to reduce demand. (Source: http://www.usingenglish.com/comprehension/)
