If you walk slowly through downtown Helsinki during the day, taking in the splendid 19 th century buildings, white boats and noise of passing trams (有軌電車), you will start to understand why it is called a city of two colors: white and blue.

The sea is always present in Helsinki. When you take a walk over the great open space of the central square, you will hear seabirds screaming. When you take the tram, suddenly and unexpectedly, you are faced with a calm, shining blue sea. You may notice that people in Helsinki do not rush about as in other cities. Instead, they walk along the roads, politely letting other people by.

A usual way to see Helsinki for the first time is to start out by the boats. You will walk by the elderly women selling fish and vegetables in the market square and find yourself in front of a beautiful park. You may enjoy a pleasant walk in the park for a few hours and then take the tram. Trams are the perfect way to get around in Helsinki. Watching the old houses, parks, theatres, churches, shops, restaurants and people in the streets, you may have a slightly sad film feeling to it.

The pale summer nights are another wonder in the city. Following the waterfront of the city after sunset, you couldn’t help stopping and listening to the sweet silence, interrupted only by the screaming seabirds and leaving fishing boats.

However, in some way. Helsinki is also the most modern city in northern Europe. You will surely want to visit the white Glass Palace, the modern art museum, and all those extremely popular cafes and design stores.

Most schools ban chewing gum, but in a few years they might consider changing that rule. Why? Scientists are finding evidence that gum chewing may be good for your health. It may even help boost your test scores.

This exciting research is just beginning. And at the same time,companies are also experimenting with adding vitamins,minerals,medicines,and other substances that could give gum the power to cure headaches and fight everything from serious diseases to bad breath. These gums are part of the growing number of foods and drinks that contain health – boosting ingredients. If you’re already a gum fan, that’s probably welcome news.

Americans chew about 1.8 pounds of gum per person each year, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. By showing that gum chewing can be healthy, companies that make and sell gum hope that we’ll chew even more.

Chewing gum might be good for your brain. One Japanese study of nine participants found that chewing gum boosted the flow of blood to participants’ brains by up to 40 percent. Blood carries oxygen, which fuels brain cells.

TOKYO(AP) – An express train traveling through strong winter winds derailed (出軌) in northern Japan, killing four people and injuring more than 30, officials said Monday.

Five cars of the six-car express train derailed Sunday evening,three of them toppling(傾倒)onto their sides in Yamagata prefecture(轄區),about 1 80 miles north of Tokyo,officials said. The train was going from northern Akita to Niigata prefecture.

The injuries of the survivors did not appear to be life-threatening,Yamagata police spokesman Yoshikatsu Oe said. It was unclear how many passengers were on the train,but Oe said most of the injured were in the first two cars.

The dead included two men and two women, and rescuers planned to lift the wreckage(殘骸)later in the day to see if any other passengers remained beneath,officials said.

ARK (Absolute Return for Kids) works with seven Home – Start centres across the UK to provide understanding, trained volunteers to support problem families. Through this early intervention (干預、介入)we aim to solve child and family problems before they become so intractable that social service intervention is required.

Problem families in the UK often receive too little assistance too late. Low social service capacity (能力) means families often reach breaking point before receiving any support. Social workers have little time to build trust with the family and develop all understanding of specific problems, what is more, social workers can be regarded by famifies as a threat – “They come to take our children away.”

Parents(with children under five)who suffer from illness, disability, addiction, poverty or other pressures receive visits from a trained volunteer one afternoon a week to support and advise them through period of crisis. Where possible, the volunteer comes from a similar background to the people calling for help, or has personal experience of similar problems.

The effectiveness of Home-Start’s longstanding programme has been proved by a number of research reports. One study of problem families assisted by Home-Start volunteers found:

·Nearly 40% of surveyed mothers reported reduced depression.

   ·42% of families reported improvements in managing their children.

   · Child behavioral problems reduced by 50%.

   Since ARK’s involvement (參與) this success has been recognized in the Government’s Green Paper Every Child Matters. The paper recommended enlarging the programme to ensure Home-Start services are available in every community in the UK. The Government has now provided £5 million to help Home-Start achieve this goal.

60. The main purpose of ARK’s work with Home-Start is to ______.

    A. train volunteers to support problem families

    B. build good relationship with the problem families

    C. solve child and family problems at the beginning

    D. save every problem child in place of social services

61. The underlined word “intractable” (in Paragraph 1)most probably means ______.

    A. serious         B. particular      C. attractive      D. sensitive

62. It can be inferred from the passage that ______.

    A. the UK government can usually help problem families in time

    B. social workers enjoy high popularity among problem families

    C. the volunteers must share the same background with the people needing help

    D. social service can’t satisfy the needs of problem families

63. In the UK, Home-Start services are now ______.

    A. spread to every corner           B. proved to be effective

    C. thought of as a threat           D. run by the government
