1.When one mentions Italian cooking to most foreigners they almost automatically<自动地> think of pizza and spaghetti. This is a sad oversimplification, because Italian cooking is as diversified<多变化的,各种的> as it is delicious.

4.The truth is that the art and ease with which the Italians eat spaghetti are the result of generations of spaghetti-eating.

5.Several attempts to invent and patent a special mechanical spaghetti fork with a revolving handle have been looked upon with scorn and shocked disgust by the Italians, who say that to use such an instrument would be like eating lobster with a pitchfork.

Chinese medicine is great

                                         ----By Yang Wentao

Traditional Chinese medicine has played a vital part in safeguarding Chinese people’s health in the past 5000 years. Nowadays, combined with modern scientific knowledge and western medical means, it is entering a new stage of its development.

The future of it is promising, and from my own experiences I must say that it is advisable to consult a Chinese doctor when you are sick.

When I was in my fifth grade, I got a serious acute sore throat. My throat swelled with pain and every time I tried to speak, I was unable to make a sound. It was as if  I had lost my speaking ability. My parents accompanied me to visit an experienced western medical doctor. The doctor proscribed a whole bunch of medicine after examining my throat and told me I would soon recover.

However, my situation worsened. Desperately, we visited a Chinese medical doctor. He checked my throat, measured my pulses, and wrote down a list of Chinese herbal medicine.

This time situation took a sharp turn. Both my parents and I were amazed at how miraculously these humble herbals worked.

It was from that experience that we began to trust Chinese medicine and place it in a higher position than western medicine in our hearts. Chinese medicine is great.
