    One of the greatest stories of rags to riches success is that of Andrew Carnegie,who started life in Poverty but became the richest man in the world.

    Carnegie was born in Scotland in 1837,the son of a weaver.In 1848,the.family moved to the United States and at 13 Carnegie began work in a cotton mill,earning $1.5 per week.About three years later,he found a better job as a telegraph messenger boy.At work,his superiors were impressed by his abilities and willingness to work hard.In 1853, he gained an office job at the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.This was his first big break.He continued to impress and rose rapidly through the company,gaining more and more responsibility.At the same time,Carnegie loved reading very much and made use of every opportunity to visit the library.He rend widely on all subjects,particularly literature.

    Carnegie now began to save a little money and,with the help of his employer,began to make some successful investments(投资).He invested in the iron industry and eventually set up in business himself,owning several iron and steel plants.This was where he made his fortune.By the 1890s,the Carnegie Steel Company was the biggest and most successful business in the world.

    Carnegie had always believed that the pursuit(追求)of wealth was never an end in itself.In his view,successful, wealthy people should give away their wealth for the benefit of everyone in society.True to his word,in 1901,at the age of 66,he retired from business and devoted the rest of his life to charity work.

    Carnegie's lack of formal education and his poor family background clearly didn't influence his success.His rapid rise from poverty to wealth was due to his willingness to work hard,his intelligence and good business sense, and his talent for making things happen.He died in 1919 at the age of 83.

    In Chinese we say,"Your handwriting says a lot about you."But in the eyes of South African photographer John Thackwray,someone's bedroom can do just the same thing.

    Thackwray,30,first had the idea of taking pictures of people's bedrooms six years ago,because he was curious how young people born in the 1980s and 1990s lived their lives.And he started with his friends' in Paris.

    Soon he decided to take this project a little further.Over the past six years,Thackwray has traveled to 55 countries and taken pictures of 1,200 bedrooms—from New York,one of the world's busiest and most developed cities,to Russia,Thailand,Iran and the poor neighborhoods in Nairobi,and cast African countries.

    From the layout of the rooms and the little items in them,you can not only see how different people's lifestyles and personalities are,but also get an insight into how unequal the world is and how traditions are replaced by new technology.

    Now Thackwray has put all his photos into a book named My Room Project.Each photo in the book comes with the name,age and job of its owner,and they are arranged in the order of his travels.But Thackwray got a lot more from the project than the chance to publish a book.He also saw a lot of things,met a lot of people and had many great experiences.

    "I was impressed by the spirituality in India,the friendliness of the Russian people and the craziness of the Japanese lifestyle,"Thackwray told The Huffington Post.

    Our environment isn't as green and beautiful as it should be.There are steel monsters blocking out the sun. blowing out dangerous smoke,and letting out poisonous chemicals into rivers,cars producing harmful waste gas, people throwing out waste in a wrong way and all other kinds of sources that ruin the planet.Facing current environmental problems,people need to do their best to save the earth.

    You cart see many big garbage dustbins in the streets.They're not there for a show,but for you to drop your waste.We should realize that what we do does count.So next time you get that urge to throw gum or a chocolate package out of the car window,or "accidentally" drop as you walk down the street,ask yourself how much waste you've been contributing to the environment with that bad habit going on for years.

    At home,the first thing we can do to protect the environment is avoid letting water run continuously and make sure that taps are not leaky(漏的),which would help greatly in scrimping.Another is to use energy-saving lights,and turn them off before you leave the rooms.It is not only energy-saving,but also cuts down electricity costs.

    Recycling is a method to make items reusable.Many things you want to throw out can be made into new products through the reproducing process.Use your imagination to come up with ways on things that you can use again.

    Pass the message of simple ways to save the environment on to kids.Starting with kids is a good way of teaching the message early in their lives,in the hope that they can carry it forward as they grow older.

    With environmental protection awareness in mind,we can do what we can,for the results are to have a big effect on the planet.As long as we do our part,the world is one small step closer to being saved.

    12. In the first paragraph the author uses "steel monsters" to refer to      .

    A. big factories    B. high mountains

    C. huge buildings    D. characters in fairy stories

    13. From the fifth paragraph,we can know that      .

    A. wonderful life comes from environmental protection

    B. protecting the environment should start from childhood

    C. protecting the environment begins with small little things

    D. protecting the environment benefits the country and the people

    14. Which of the following is NOT true?

    A. To protect the environment may help you save some money.

    B. Your bad habits for the environment are a harmful contribution.

    C. The more people do their part,the greener the environment will be.

    D. Selling what you don't want any more is not a kind of recycling.

    15. The passage is mainly about      .

    A. the use of garbage dustbins    B. how to save the environment

    C. our present environmental problems    D. how to save water and electricity
