In the depths of my memory, many things I did with my father still live. These thin gs come to represent, in fact, what I call 36 and love.
I don't remember my father ever getting into a swimming tool. But he did 37 the water. Any kind of 38 ride seemed to give him pleasure. 39 he loved to fish; sometimes he took me along.
But I never really liked being on the water, the way my father did. I liked being
40 the water, movig through it, 41 it all around me. I was not a strong , 42
or one who learned to swim early, for I had my 43 But I loved being in the s wimming pool close to my father's office and 44 those summer days with my fath er, who 45 come by on a break. I needed himto see what I could do. My father wou ld stand there in his suit, the 46 person not in swimsuit.
After swimming, I would go 47 his office and sit on the wooden chair in front of his big desk, where he let 48 me anything I found in his top desk 49 d rawer. Sometimes, if I was left alone at his desk he worked in the lab, an assistant or a s tudent might come in and tell me perhaps I shouldn't be playing with his 50 But m y father always 51 and said easily, "Oh, no, it's 52 ." Sometimes he handed me coins and told me to get 53 an ice cream…

It was the summer of 1965. Deluca, then 17, visited Peter Buck, a family friend. Buck asked Deluca about his plan for the future. "I'm going to college, but I need a way to pay for it, "Deluca recalls saying." Buck said, 'you should open a sandwich shop.”
That afternoon, they agreed to be partners. And they set a goal: to open 32 stores in ten years . After doing some research, Buck wrote a check for ,000. Deluca rented a storefront(店面) in Connecticut, and when they couldn't cover their startup costs, Buck kicked in another ,000.
But business didn't go smoothly as they expected. Deluca says, "After six months, we were
doing poorly, but we didn't know how badly, because we didn't have any financial controls." All he and Buck knew was that their sales were lower than their costs.
Deluca was managing the store and to the University of Bridgeport at the same time. Buck was working at his day job as a nuclear physicist in New York. They'd meet Monday evenings and brainstorm ideas for keeping the business running. "We convinced ourselves to open a second store. We figured we could tell the public, 'We are so successful; we are opening a second store.'" And they did — in the spring of 1966. Still, it was a lot of learning by trial and error.
But the partners' learn-as-you-go approach turned out to be their greatest strength. Every Friday, Deluca would drive around and handdeliver the checks to pay their supplies. "It probably took me two and a half hours and it wasn't necessary but as a result, the suppliers got to know me very well, and the personal relationships established really helped out," Deluca says.
And having a goal was also important. "There are so many problems that can get you down. You just have to keep working toward your goal," Deluca adds.
Deluca ended up founding Subways Sandwich, the multimillion-dollar restaurant chain.

Many parents have learned the hard way that what sounds like open communication is often t he very thing that closes a youngster's ears and mouth.One common mistake is the Lecture,the lon g monologue that often starts with"When I was your age…"Eighteen-year-old Kelly calls lectures" long,one-side discussions in which I don't say much."
Kids reflexively(条件反射地)shut down in the face of a lecture.Their eyes glaze over(呆滞),and they don't register any incoming information. Listen to 13-year-old Sarah describe her le ast favorite times with her mom and dad. "First,they scream. Then comes the…We're so disappoint edspeech. Then the…I never did that to my parents'lecture begins. After that,even if they realize ho w ridiculous they sound,they never take it back. "
Lines like"When you have children of your own,you'll understand"have been seriously said b y parents since time immemorial. But many of our expert parents,like Bobby,a registered nurse an d mother of three,feel that by falling back on clichés(陈词滥调)to justify our actions,we weake n our position.
Since kids are creatures of here and now,the far-off future has no relevance to them. There f ore,good communicators like Bobby suggest,"Give specific
reasons for your actions in present language:”I'm not letting you go to the party because I do n't think there will be enough adult supervisions(监护).”
Betty,who lives in Missouri,uses an indirect approach."I find that warnings are accepted mor e readily if I discuss a news article on a subject I am concerned about.My husband and I talk abou t it while our children absorb the information.
Then they never think I'm preaching(布道)."
This really helped when Betty's kids began driving.Instead of constantly repeating"Don't drin k; don't speed,"she would talk about articles in the paper and express sympathy for the victims o f a car crash.Betty made no special effort to draw her kids into the conversation.She depended o n a teenager's strong desire to put in his opinions—-especially if he thinks he isn't being asked for t hem.

From the health point of view we are living in an amazing age. We are free from many of the most dangerous diseases. A large number of once deadly illnesses can now be cured by modern medicine. It is almost certain that one day medicines will be found for the most stubborn remaining diseases. The expectation of life has increased greatly. But though the possibility of living a long and happy life is greater than ever before, every day we witness the unbelievable killing of men, women and children on the roads. Man Vs. the motor-cart. It is a never-ending battle which man is losing.
Thousands of people the world over are killed or horribly killed each year and we are quietly sitting back and letting it happen.It has been rightly said that when a man is sitting behind a steering wheel(方向盘), his car becomes the extension of his personality. There is no doubt that the motor-car often brings out a man's very worst qualities. People who are normally quiet and pleasant may become unrecognizable when they are behind a steering-wheel. They say, they are ill-mannered and aggressive, willful as two-year-olds and completely selfish. All their hidden angers and disappointments seem to be brought to the surface by the act of driving.
The surprising thing is that society smiles so gently on the motorist and seems to forgive his behavior. Everything is done for his convenience. Cities are allowed to become almost uninhabitable because of heavy traffic; towns are made ugly by huge car parks; the countryside is ruined by road networks; and the deaths become nothing more than a number every year, to be easily forgotten.
It is high time a world rule was created to reduce this senseless waste of human life. With regard to driving, the laws of some countries are unbelievably lenient(宽容) and even the strictest are not strict enough. A rule which was universally accepted could only have an obviously beneficial effect on the accident rate.
Here are a few examples of some of the things that might be done. The driving test should be standardized and made far more difficult than it is; all the drivers should be made to take a test every three years or so; the age at which young people are allowed to drive any vehicle should be raised to at least 21; all vehicles should be put through strict tests for safety each year. Even the smallest amount of alcohol in the blood can damage a person's driving ability. Present drinking and driving laws (where they exist) should be nude much stricter. Speed limits should be required on all roads. Governments should lay down safety specifications for car factories, as has been done in the USA. All advertising stressing power and performance should be banned. These measures may not sound good enough. But surely nothing should be considered as too severe if it results in reducing the number of deaths. After all, the world is for human beings, not motor-cars.
