課文:

Many people look forward to sweet treats during the Christmas holidays. Fruitcake is part of the Christmas celebration in many countries. This rich cake is made with spices, dried fruit and nuts. The best fruitcakes are 50 percent fruit and nuts. To come in America, however, fruitcake is not appealing. They don’t think it tastes good, and it’s usually stale. People who receive one often regift it rather than eat it.

celebration:慶祝、慶祝會

Let’s assume you’re a business manager. Surely you’d view your own time as precious. But what about your employees’ work time? Are you aware of how much time they spend checking email or attending meetings? According to consultant Michael Mankins, as much as 15 percent of a company’s time can be spent – or wasted – in meetings.

Silver Linings

Whether famous for a fight to the death or for film performances, both Katniss and Lawrence struggle as celebrities. “I’m surrounded by people all the time, and then it can be so lonely when all of a sudden everybody goes. Then I have to remind myself it’s just being alone, it’s not lonely.”

Catching fire

A flaming costume made Katniss stand out immediately, but Lawrence’s fame took a little more time to develop. First starring in a sitcom and several independent dramas, she found work but little attention until Winter’s Bone came along. At first thought too pretty to play a poor mountain girl, Lawrence finally won over the film’s producers with her natural talent. Her character, Ree, cared for her siblings while searching for their father, a sort of warm-up to playing Katniss.

Ask questions

When you can’t remember someone’s name, try to remember where you know them from. You can say, “It’s been too long. When was the last time we saw each other?” If you can remember the context, it might help you remember the name.

Kids come up with the cutest names for others when they don’t know the real ones. But adults don’t have the same option. They can’t call the mail carrier “Mr. Mailman” if they forget his name.

Imagine driving your car into the garage and having it instantly start “refuelingwithout your having to do a thing. Now consider the possibility of, instead of plugging in your smartphone to recharge it, simply dropping it on a pad. That’s the promise of wireless charging, which is finally getting commercialized.
