B Lockers(储物柜)have been the symbol of American high school for decades. But walk down any hallway of the new Germantown High School in Madison County, Mississippi, and you won’t spot a single locker. New technology such as e-books, interactive(互动的) assignments and Web-based learning is making lockers in American high school a thing of the past. Officials from schools that have listed several benefits: less noise, less delay and an increased sense of safety. “It’s all to create an environment that’s student-friendly”, said Ronnie McGehee, chief official of the Madison County School district. Getting rid of lockers can also cut hundreds of thousands in construction costs. Madison County saved $200,000 by not including lockers in the new high school, Mc Gehee said. It is also believed that removing lockers could help prevent school violence. ”Lockers give kids a place to hide things”, said Mike Nelson, founder of a safety- training group. Nelson believes that some school shootings and other incidents could have been prevented if there had been no lockers. However, Andrew Booth, a 10th-grader at Gemantown High, said there are some disadvantages of not having
a locker. “ It can make your book bag really heavy”, he said . The 16-year-old has four textbooks “plus notebooks and a binder(活页夹)” to carry to school each day. He said some teachers have shelves at the back of the classroom on which students can leave their bags. Others provide an extra set of textbooks in the classroom, so students don’t have to carry books from home. New York architect Pestr Lippman said schools will have to address such concerns and find ways to give studets a “sense of space” “If you are carrying books around, it does limit your flexibility in the classrooms,” he said. Lippman said he would like to see schools starting to use the new free space to provide less structured learning opprtunities for students, including gathering areas and learning centers. “If you think about a school with just rows of lockers-there’s nowhere for learning opportunities in that”, he said. 62.

C When a child is told he is “ uncool”, it can be very painful, He may say he doesn’t care, and even act in ways that are opposite of cool on purpose. But these are simply ways to handle sadness by pretending it’s not there. Helping a child feel better in school had to be careful. If you say, “Why are you worried about what other children think about you? It doesn’t matter!” children know that it does matter. Instead, an active way may be best. You could say, “ I’m going to do a couple of things for you to help you feel better in school.” If a boy is having trouble making friends, the teacher can help him. The teacher can arrange things so that he has chances to use his abilities to contribute to class projects. This is how the other children learn how to value his good qualities and to like him. A teacher can also raise a child’s popularity in the group by showing that he values that child. It even helps to put him in a seat next to a very popular child, or let him be a partner with that child in activities, etc. There are things that parents can do at home, too. Be friendly when your child brings others home to play. Encourage him to invite friends to meals and then serve the dishes they consider” When you plan trips, picnics, movies, and other shows, invite another child with whom your child wants to be friends.

D If you are a wealthy person of India, madly in love and planning your big fat wedding-or being pressured into arranged marriage-Thailand wants you to exchange vows(誓言) in Bangkok, Phuket or elsewhere in this “ wedding paradise(乐园)”. This wedding business starts from overseas with the Indians. Thai embassies in India give quick services for the visas. Not only the couples, you can bring anyone, say, your own cook. So, feel free to invite hundreds of your friends and relatives. Why would Indians want to spend so much on weddings in Thailand? Because they have similarities in religion, When Indian weddings want to have some religious prayer for the couples, Thailand can do that But the more obvious appeal are Thailand’s fancy hotels, tropical islands, and delicious Thai food, allowing new couples to include a honeymoon in Thailand after they say “I do” while their guests also celebrate on a holiday here. But on the other hand, love does have a price. Kasr Rajagopal arranged for his daughter to have a wedding in phuket.

The approximate costs are around half a million U.S. dollars, including the airfares, hotel accommodation, food, transportation, the yachts on hire and the wedding ceremony expenses, for 225 to 250 guests. Thailand wants to make itself a wedding paradise for all couples, not just from India, but from around the world.
