It’s impossible to determine how many people would have lost their lives without the contribution of African-American inventor Dr Charles Drew.
Charles Drew was born on June 3, 1904, in Washington, DC. His early interest was in education, but he was also an outstanding athlete. While in college, he was awarded as the man who contributed the most to sports during his four years in school. Drew’s sister Elsie suffered from tuberculosis(肺结核) and died in 1920. Her death influenced his decision to study medicine.
After becoming a doctor and working as a college instructor, Drew went to Columbia University, where he earned his Doctor of Medical Science degree. During this time he became involved in research on blood and blood transfusions (输血).
At Columbia, he wrote a paper on “banked blood”, in which he described a technique he developed for the long-term preservation of blood plasma (血浆). Before his discovery, blood could not be stored for more than two days because of the rapid breakdown of red blood cells. Drew had discovered that by separating the plasma from the whole blood and then refrigerating (冷冻) them separately, they could be combined a week later for a blood transfusion. Drew became the first African American to receive a PhD in medical science.
After World War II broke out, Drew was called upon to put his techniques into practice. He was named a project director for the American Red Cross but soon quit his post after the government issued an order that blood taken from white donors (献血者) should be separated from that of black donors.
On April 1, 1950, after he attended the annual free clinic at the John A. Andrew Memorial Hospital, he and other three physicians decided to drive back home. As he was tired from spending the night before in the operating room, he lost control of his car. Drew was badly injured and was taken to Alamance General Hospital in Burlington, North Carolina. He was pronounced dead half an hour after he first received medical attention. Drew’s funeral was held on April 5, 1950, at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church in Washington, DC.
But contrary to popular thought, he was not refused a blood transfusion by an all-white hospital. He indeed received a transfusion but was beyond the help of the doctors attending to him. As Dr. John Ford, one of the doctors who survived the accident, later explained, “We all received the very best of care. The fact that he was a Black did not in any way limit the care that was given to him.” Over the years, Drew has been considered one of the most honored figures in the medical field.

Magic is believed to have begun with the Egyptians, in 1700 BC. A magician named Dedi of Dedsnefu was reported to have performed for the pharaoh, or the king. He was also known to have entertained the slaves who built the pyramids. The “Cups and Balls” trick which he was particularly
good at is still performed by magicians all over the world today.
The ancient Greeks and Romans were also fascinated by the idea of magic. Actually, one of their main interests was the art of deception. This explains why at that time the priests even built magic devices into their temples. These devices made it possible for doors to open by themselves and wine to flow magically out of statues’ （雕像）mouths. This was done mainly to convince people that the priests were powerful.
Magic, however, was not well accepted before the 1800s. Magicians were thought of as freaks and were only allowed to perform in a circus. It was in the 19th century that the magician Robert Houdin came along and changed people’s views and attitudes about magic. It was also because of Robert Houdin that many magicians were able to add Dr. or MD to their names. Today magicians try hard to find new ways to show their practiced skills. Magic is now entertainment for families all over the world.

About this time every year, I get very nostalgic (怀旧的). Walking through my neighborhood on a fall afternoon reminds me of a time not too long ago when sounds of children filled the air, children playing games on a hill, and throwing leaves around in the street below. I was one of those children, carefree and happy. I live on a street that is only one block long. I have lived on the same street for sixteen years. I love my street. One side has six houses on it, and the other has only two houses, with a small hill in the middle and a huge cottonwood tree on one end. When I think of home, I think of my street. Only I see it as it was before. Unfortunately things change. One day, not long ago, I looked around and saw how different everything has become. Life on my street will never be the same because neighbors are quickly grown old, friends are growing up and leaving, and the city is planning to destroy my precious hill and sell the property to contractors.
It is hard for me to accept that many of my wonderful neighbors are growing old and won’t be around much longer. I have fond memories of the couple across the street, who sat together on their porch swing almost every evening, the widow（寡妇）next door who yelled at my brother and me for being too loud, and the crazy old man in a black suit who drove an old car. In contrast to those people, the people I see today are very old neighbors who have seen better days. The man in the black suit says he wants to die, and another neighbor just sold his house and moved into a nursing home. The lady who used to yell at us is too tired to bother any more, and the couple across the street rarely go out to their front porch these days. It is difficult to watch these precious people as they near the end of their lives because at one time I thought they would live forever.
The “comings and goings” of the younger generation of my street are now mostly “goings” as friends and peers move on. Once upon a time, my life and the lives of my peers revolved around home. The boundary of our world was the gutter at the end of the street. We got pleasure from playing night games or from a breathtaking ride on a tricycle. Things are different now, as my friends become adults and move on. Children who rode tricycles now drive cars. The kids who once played with me now have new interests and values as they go their separate ways. Some have gone away to college like me, a few got married, two went into the army, and one went to prison. Watching all these people grow up and go away makes me long for the good old days.
Perhaps the biggest change on my street is the fact that the city is going to turn my precious hill into several lots for new homes. For sixteen years, the view out of my kitchen window has been a view of that hill. The hill was a fundamental part of my childhood life; it was the hub of social activity for the children of my street. We spent hours there building forts, sledding, and playing tag. The view out of my kitchen window now is very different; it is one of tractors and dump trucks tearing up the hill. When the hill goes, the neighborhood will not be the same. It is a piece of my childhood. It is a visual reminder of being a kid. Without the hill, my street will be just another pea in the pod.
There was a time when my street was my world, and I thought my world would never change. But something happened. People grow up, and people grow old. Places changes, and with the change comes the heartache of knowing I can never go back to the times I loved. In a year or so, I will be gone just like many of my neighbors. I will always look back to my years as a child, but the place I remember will not be the silent street whose peace is interrupted by the sounds of construction. It will be the happy, noisy, somewhat strange, but wonderful street I knew as a child. ks5u

Are you planning to pursue a course from a foreign university? Well, then you certainly come to the right place. These tips for studying abroad will surely make you feel at home in a new city. Just have a look!
Before you leave for your destination country, make sure that you are well aware of its culture, customs and traditions. Every country has its own culture, which may be different from yours. Therefore, if you wish to get adjusted to the local way of living in a short time, you must be aware of what the people eat, how they dress up and also what their sensibilities are. Also, you can catch a few of the commonly used words of the local language there. In this way, not only will you be able to make yourself feel at home in the new city, but also will be spared from experiencing a major culture shock.
This is perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind before you set off to foreign shores to study. Make note of all the essential papers you would need before and during your stay abroad, especially the passport and the visa. It is recommended that you make copies of both, your passport and visa, in case you might be required to get a new one during the course of your stay there. Also, at least one other member of your family should have a passport made so that you can have somebody by your side if you fall sick or in case of other emergencies. Also, it is a good idea to carry a few copies of your photo, in case you need to use one. Another thing that’s necessary is to get a health insurance to cover the expenses of a medical emergency abroad. ks5u
When you decide to pursue a course abroad, it is extremely important that you should research well. Don’t just follow advertisements and choose one blindly. Instead, talk to people who have completed their studies from that country or who are planning to move to the same country. This way you’ll get some reliable information.
64. _____________________________ ks5u
Not only will it make it easier for you to face personal interviews but also to interact with the local people and follow students. The more you speak to people, the more you’ll end up making friends quickly. What a way to drive the blues away!
Get the details of the Embassy（大使馆） in the city you’re moving to, including the phone number and register yourself and your family members with the Embassy. This way you’ll know whom to reach out to in case you are in trouble in a foreign location.
These tips for studying abroad can go a long way in making your stay a truly memorable one. So, don’t let the fear of experiencing a culture shock prevent you from studying for the career of your dreams. Hope the time you spend abroad for studies turns out to be the most memorable time of your life.
Climbing is my favorite sport. I am very fond it, especially in later autumn. One day early in the morning, my friends and I took on our sports shoes and start off. After climbing for half a hour, we got to the top of the mountain. There we had a good view mile around. To the northern, a big river crossed the city. There were many ships sail busily. A lot of beautiful trees were there, too. The sun started to go down, for it was time for us to go back. On the way back, we were laughing and talking all the time. We had a good time on that day.

One possible version:
The person I’d like to introduce to you now is Helen Keller, an ordinary but great American woman.ks5u
Every time I read “…..if I had the power of sight for three days”, I cannot help being moved by her greatness.
I admire Helen because she is optimistic about life. She became deaf and blind when she was 19 months old. Since then she lived in a world of darkness and silence, and communication seemed only a dream for her. But she never gave up and struggled to lead an active life. Under the guidance of her teacher, Ms. Sulliven, Helen learned to read and write and became a famous writer. For a disabled person like her, this was really a wonder!
Helen has set an excellent example to all of us. Her story tells us that we should value what we have, and try our best to overcome any difficulty in life.
