    The elephant was lying heavily on its side,fast asleep. A few dogs started barking at it. The elephant woke up in a terrible anger:It chased the dogs into the village where they ran for safety. That didn't stop the elephant. It destroyed a dozen houses and injured several people. The villagers were scared and angry. Then someone suggested calling Parbati,the elephant princess.
    Parbati Barua's father was a hunter of tigers and an elephant tamer, He taught Parbati to ride an elephant before she could even walk. He also taught her the dangerous art of the elephant round-up—how to catch wild elephants.
    Parbati hasn't always lived in the jungle. After a happy childhood hunting with her father, she was sent to boarding school in the city. But Parbati never got used to being there and many years later she went back to her old life. "Life in the city is too dull. Catching elephants is an adventure and the excitement lasts for days after the chase," she says.
    But Parbati doesn’t catch elephants just for fun. “My work.”she says,“is to rescue man from the elephants,and to keep the elephants safe from man." And this is exactly what Parbati has been doing for many years. Increasingly,the Indian elephant is angry: For many years,I'llegal hunters have attacked it and its home in the jungle has been reduced to small pieces of land. It is now fighting back. Whenever wild elephants enter a tea garden, or a village, Parbati is called to guide the animals back to the jungle before they can kill.
    The work of an elephant tamer also involves love and devotion. A good elephant tamer will spend hours a day singing love songs to a newly captured elephant "Eventually they grow to love their tamers and never forget them. They arealso more loyal than humans,"she said,as she climbed up one of her elephants and sat on the giant, happy animal. An elephant princess indeed!

    For many parents,raising a teenager is like fighting a long war, but years go by without any clear winner. Like a border conflict between neighboring countries, the parent teen war is about boundaries:Where is the line between what I control and what you do?
    Both sides want peace,but neither feels it has any power to stop the conflict. In part,this is because neither is willing to admit any responsibility for starting it. From the parents' point of view, the only cause of their fight is their adolescents' complete unreasonableness. And of course,the teens see it in exactly the same way,except oppositely. Both feel trapped.
    In this article,I'll describe three no-win situations that commonly arise between teens and parents and then suggest some ways out of the trap. The first no-win situation is quarrel on unimportant things. Examples include the color of the teen's hair,the cleanness of the bedroom, the preferred style of clothing, the child's failure to eat a good breakfast before school,or his tendency to sleep until noon on the weekends. Second,blaming. The goal of a blaming battle is to make the other admit that his bad attitude is the reason why everything goes wrong. Third, needing to be right. It doesn't matter what the topic is politics,the laws of physics,or the proper way to break an egg the point of these arguments is to. prove that you are right and the other person is wrong, for both wish to be considered an authority someone who actually knows something and therefore to command respect. Unfortunately,as long as parents and teens continue to assume that they know more than the other,they'll continue tofight these battles forever and never make any real progress.
1.Why does the author compare the parent-teen war to a border conflict?
A.Both can continue for geaerations.

    I know what you’re thinking : pizza? For breakfast?
    But the truth is that you can have last night’s leftovers in the morning if you want to.
    I know lots of women who skip breakfast,and they have a ton of different excuses for doing it . Some say they don’t have time,others think they’re “saving” calories (卡路里), and still others just don’t like breakfast food .
    But the bottom line is that eating in the morning is very important when you’re trying to lose weight. “Eating just about anything from 300 to 1,000 calories would be better than nothing at all,” says Katherine Brooking , R , D , who developed the super-easy eating plan for this year’s “SELF CHALLENGE”. And even pizza can be healthy if it’s loaded with vegetables, and you stick to one small piece.
    Breakfast is one meal I never miss, and the same goes for most weight loss success stories. Research shows that eating breakfast keeps you from overeating later in the day. Researchers at the University of Southem California found that breakfast skippers have a bigger chance of gaining weight than those who regularly have a morning meal.
    So eat something in the morning, anything. I know plenty of friends who end up having no breakfast altogether, and have just coffee or orange juice. I say, try heating up last night’s leftovers-it may sound crazy, but if it works for you, do it! I find if I tell myself, “You can always eat it tomorrow,” I put away the leftovers instead of eating more that night.Try it,and then you may save yourself some pre-bedtime calories. And watch your body gain the fat-burning effects.
1.The word“leftovers” in Paragraph 1 probably means           .

D.eat calorie-controlled food
4.The text is written mainly for those           .

    On March 17 there will be an explosion of green colour across the world in celebration of St Patrick’s Day. The Irish traditionally wear something coloured green on this day as the colour is connected with Ireland. Another St Patrick'S Day tradition is for the non-Irish to make jokes about the Irish. Usually these jokes will be about Irish stupidity or their famous thirst for alcohol,or their reputation for telling tall (untrue) stories.1.
    The real joke,however,is that this negative Irish stereotype still exists. The stereotype might have had some truth back in the 19th century when Irish was poverty-stricken and starving. Many Irish moved to the United States to escape famine(饥荒)but there they had to compete, occasionally with their fists, for jobs and housing with other immigrant groups. 2 However,it was far from truth today,with the exception of the drinking perhaps.
    Today,the Irish are admired for their story telling gifts and musical talents. It is no accident that several of the greatest writers of the 20th century were Irish. 3LonelyPlanet readers even ranked Ireland as the friendliest country in the world.
    4Drinking in Ireland is a job,but it's not necessarily something to criticize, 5.
A. Or that many of today's most popular music groups such, as singer Enya and rock band U2, are Irish bom and growing.
B. It was the Irish after all who created one of the world's best loved beers, Guinness.
C. These characteristics are all part of the famous Irish stere-otype(成见)that Irishman are hot-tempered drinkers,who love to fight and will do anything to avoid a day's work,
D. The Irish like drinking.
E. It was on America's streets that the Irish earned their reputation for street fighting.
F. However,one bit of the Irish stereotype is true,their love for drink.
G. The Irish like music.
