Men have traveled ever since they first appeared on the earth.
In primitive times they did not travel for pleasure but to find new placeS where their herds couldfeed，or to escape from hostile neighbors，or to find mole favorable climates.They traveled on foot.Theirjoumeys were long，tiring，and often dangerous.They protected themselves with simple weapons，such aswooden sticks oi-stone clubs，and by lighting fires at night and，above all，by keeping together.
Being intelligent and creative，they soon discovered easier ways of traveling.They rode on thebacks of their domesticated animals;they hoHowed out tree trunks and，by using bits of wood aspaddles.were able to travel across water.
Later they traveled，not from necessity，but for the joy and excitement of seeing and experiencingnew things.This is still the main reason why we travel today.
Traveling，of course，has now become a highly organized business.There are cars and splendid roads，express trains，huge ships and jet airliners，all of which provide us with comforts and security.·r11lis sounds wonderfm.But there are difficulties.If you want to go abroad，you need a passport and avisa，ticket，luggage，and a hundred of other things.If you lose any of them，your journey maybe mined.

It is customary for adults to forget how hard and dull and long school is.The learning by memoryof all the basic things one must know is a most incredible and unending effort.Learning to read isprobably the most difficult and revolutionary thing that happens to the human brain and if you don’tbelieve that，watch an illiterate adult try to do it.School is not easy and it is not for the most partvery much fun，but then，if you are very lucky，you may find a real teacher.Three real teachers ina lifetime is the very best of my luck.My first was a science and math teacher in high school，mysecond，a professor of creative writing at Stanford，and my third was my friend and partner，EdRicketts.
My three had these things in common：They all loved what they were doing.They did not tell;they catalyzed a burning desire to know.Under their influence，the horizons sprung wide and fearwent away and the unknown became knowable.But most important of all，the truth，that dangerousstuff，became beautiful and very precious.
I shall speak only of my first teacher because in addition to the other things，she：brought discovery.She aroused us to shoutin9，book—waving discussions.She had the noisiest class in school andshe didn’t even seem to know it.We could.never stick to the subject.Our speculation ranged theworld.She breathed curiosity into us so that we brought in facts or truths shielded in our hands likecaptured fireflies.

The intelligence test used most often today are based on the work of a Frenchman，Alfred Binet.In l905，Binet Was asked by the French Ministry of Education to develop a way to identify those childtIin French schools who were too“mentally deficient(不足的)”to benefit from ordinary schooling andwho needed special education.The tests had to distinguish those who were merely behind in schoodfrom those who were actually mentally deficient.
The items that Binet and his colleague Theophile Simon included on the test were chosen on the basis of their ideas about intelligence.Binet and Simon believed intelligence includes such abilitiesas understanding the meaning of words;solving problems，and making commonsense judgements.Two other important assumptions also shaped Binet’s and Simon’s work：(1)that children with moreintelligence will do better in school and(2)that older children have a greater ability than youngerchildren.
Binet’S first test consisted of t}lirty tasks.They were simple things most children learn as a result oftheir everyday experiences.The tasks were arranged in groups.according to age.Binet decided whichtasks were appropriate for a given age group by giving them first to a large number of children of differentages.If more than half of the children of a given age passed a test，it was considered appropriate for thatage group.

The strange close understanding between twins is a familiar enough phenomenon.Often theyseem to understand each other and share each other’s emotions to such an extent that one suspectssome kind of thought communication.
What is not so widely known is that this special relationship often acts as brake on twins’intellectual development.As they are partly isolated in their own private world，twins communicate lesswith adults than do other children.The verbal ability of a four—year—old twin is typically six monthsbehind that of a non-twin.The problem can be particularly severe in an underprivileged family，aone-parent family for example，where there is little stimulation for children anyway.
Such children，while capable of mutual comprehension in a private language，often remainincomprehensible to outsiders and thus at a severe educational disadvantage.The only solution tothe problem，cruel though it may seem，is to separate the twins thus forcing them to acquire ordinaryspeech helped and guided by sympathetic parents and teachers.

How can we get rid of garbage?Do we have enough energy sources to meet our future energyneeds?

For a long time，people buried garbage or dumped it on empty land.Now，empty land is scarce·But more and more garbage is produced each year.However，garbage can be a good fuel to use.Thethings in garbage do not look like coal，petroleum，or natural gas;but they are chemically similar totllese fossil fuels.As we use up our fossil—fuel supplies，we might be able to use garbage as an energysource.Burning garbage is not a new idea.Some cities in Europe and the United States have beenburning garbage for years.The heat that is produced by burning garbage is used to boil water.Thesteam that is produced is used to make electricity or to heat nearby buildings.In Paris，France，somepower plants burn almost 2 million metric tons of the city’s garbage each year.The amount of energypmduced is about the same as would be produced by burning almost a half million barrels of oil.
