Last year my daughter and I rescued several hurt street baby dogs and we had the homeless dog vaccinated(接种疫苗) and taken in by a local animal rescue center here in Mumbai, India where we, live as foreigners. We have been volunteering at the shelter ever since. I was recently feeling the push to serve more, so I scheduled a Saturday visit.
My daughter had social invitations, but she also felt the push to visit the shelter, so she planned to go there with her friends and me, later in the day instead. We piled up old blankets, sheets and pillows to take along and donate. On arriving and touring, we met 500 dogs and 200 cats being cared for at this shelter. After the tour we served meals to the puppies in the sick or injured puppy room. We held and comforted those who would clearly九阳豆浆机,2019广东一模各科试题及答案汇总 附高考冲刺资料,听 survive their injuries and several who were so sick that the volunteer vet on hand said they had a 50% chance of being alive next week. Then we fed two sick and abandoned young kittens.
While feeding the animals I watched the workers who were cleaning out some of the dog houses with healthy dogs who would be returned to the streets. I was touched most by how often they stopped in their duty to pet and play with these dogs. They did it with such love. While some workers and volunteers were paid, others were paid nothing to support these animals.
My daughter and I stayed for 4-5 hours, beyond the time she had scheduled to meet friends for lunch. She chose to cancel her social date and spend more time with these anima九阳豆浆机,2019广东一模各科试题及答案汇总 附高考冲刺资料,听ls despite the tough conditions.

A survey of university backgrounds of heads of major global companies found that Harvard in the United States was the most likely place to have studied in.
The Times Higher Education magazine ranked the universities attended by chief executive office跃泽吮血蛛rs (CEO) of Fortune Global 500 companies. There are four US universities in the top 10, with three from France, two from Japan and one from South Korea. The highest ranked UK university is Oxford in 21st place.
This league table, described as the Alma Mater Index, shows which universities around the world taught th万艾可的效果e bosses of some of the world’s biggest companies. One in 20 had a degree from a single institution, Harvard. This included Margaret C. Whitman of Hewlett-Packard, Jeffrey R. Immelt of General Electric and Vittorio Colao of Vodafone.
But the top 10 for producing business leaders does not contain all the usual names that appear at the top of university rankings. Oxford and Cambridge are absent, but the University of Pennsylvania in the US and Keio University in Japan are included, along with three French universities, headed by the Ecole Polytechnique.
Across the top 100, universities from the US dominate, followed by universities in China, J米粉肉的做法apan, France and Germany. There are more Ceos who went to university in Asia than in Europe. In terms of national comparisons, UK universities produced the sixth highest number of global chief executives, with Oxford in 21st place and Cambridge in 45th place.
But even though Harvard might have taught the biggest number of bosses from the top 500 companies, it was not attended by any of the heads of the biggest 10 companies, who were from a more diverse range of universities.
Royal Dutch Shell is headed by a graduate of Zurich University of Applied Sciences; Walmart is headed by a student of Georgia Tech and Exxon Mobil has a chief executive from the University of Texas, Austin. Three of the leaders of these biggest companies went to university in China and the head of Volkswagen went to university in Stuttgart.

Could your weekend lie-in(睡懒觉) kill you?” asked the Daily mail. It is said in a study that sleeping more at weekends can increase the risk of heart disease. Since most of us change our sleep schedule depending on whether it's a work or non-work day, it's an interesting question. Is the lie-in really so dangerous? Researchers say that changing sleep patterns causes social jet lag. Is that even a thing?
Changing our sleeping hours causes the effect of crossing a time zone-it makes us sleepy during the day. People who changed their sleep patterns were also more likely to gain weight during the study and more suited to going to bed and waking late because of the change of their biological clock. They were more at risk of these changes than earlier sleepers and risers. The study also shows an association between switching sleep patterns and changes in some blood results. It does not show that anyone's developing heart disease was because they had lie-ins.
Jim Horne, one of the professors of the Sleep Research Centre at Loughborough University, says the concept of social jet lag is likely to feed our anxiety about sleep, so we should really stop worrying so much and have a limited weekend lie-in. Worry is bad for sleep and we naturally compensate for not getting enough rest in the week by lying-in at weekends, so we shouldn't stop doing it. However, w名e should limit the time.
Studies show that if you accumulate a five-hour sleep debt during the week, then you only need one and a half hours of extra sleep on your days off to make up for it. It would be a shame to be scared of a lie-in. Studies of sleep and risk factors for heart disease can struggle to tell between poor sleep causing stress and stress disrupting sleep. Work stress can cause both a rise in blood pressure and changes in sleep patterns. Sleep is the test for the state of one's health, and the most important thing that happens when you don't get enough of it is that you feel sleepy.
32. What's the probable effect of changing our sleep patterns?
A. Becoming unhealthy.
B. Losing weight quickly.
C. Easily adapting to time zones.
D. Becoming early sleepers and risers.
33. What is Jim Horne's attitude towards the weekend lie-in?
34. What does the underlined phrase "doing it" in Paragraph 3 refer to?
C. Sleeping early.
D. Compensating for the limit.
35. What can we infer from the text?
A. The sleep debt must be paid off completely.
B. The weekend lie-in is a bad habit for all people.
C. The more hours one sleeps, the healthier he will be.
D. Poor sleep may result from and cause stress in turn.
Over the course of my life, I come to realize we will have unpleasant feelings from time to time. Our loved ones will pass away, our friends and families will disappoint us, and the challenges of life will make us angry and frustrated. 36 I have experienced a lot and find out some effective ways to help express our feelin走运gs.
