EQ† as Important as IQ? EQ 高 IQ 也會高? When measuring and preparing children for success in the future, many educators feel you can no longer rely on IQ tests as a gauge.1 While a high IQ can get you far in academics,2 it’s EQ—one’s emotional quotient—that creates successful leaders. In a recent study from the University of Illinois, researchers found that children who were receiving social and emotional training scored 10-11% higher on academic tests. With this in mind, some schools are already adding EQ classes to the curriculum3 in an effort to improve academic performance now and job success in the future.

間接問句的用法 步驟一

本文第一句 Have you . . . what life is like . . . 可拆解成以下兩句:

q What is life like in the ocean? w Have you ever wondered that? 步驟二

為了合併兩句,我們將 q 改寫成名詞子句,即「疑問詞 + S. + V.」的形式,形成 e。

q What is life like in the ocean? 刪除問號

主詞和動詞位置互換

e what life is like in the ocean 首字小寫

步驟三

用 e 取代句 w 中原本的受詞 that,就得到文中的句子囉! 當動詞 wondered 的受詞 主要子句

Have you ever wondered [what life is like in the ocean]?

+ 此句型中,主要子句是疑問句時結尾用問號,如文中用法。若主要子句是直述句時則要改成句號喔。 • Julie wants to know what time it is. 主要子句為直述句,使用句號。

Toilets Get a Bad Rap †

啊 !馬桶不髒?

—Michelle Adams

W

HEN

you see a dog drinking out of a

toilet, you probably think, “Eww, †

gross! ” In most people’s minds, the toilet is the dirtiest thing there is. However, the toilet is 05

surprisingly far down the list of filthiestu items. The 2009 Hygiene u in the Home Study found that kitchens are far dirtier than bathrooms. That cloth you use to wipe the counter1 or dry dishes is loaded with bacteria2

10

and mold, even if it looks clean. That goes for the kitchen faucet,3 too! Even dirtier than the kitchen are office keyboards. Experts say that an average4 keyboard has almost 4,000 germs5 per square inch. On the other hand, an office toilet seat has only about forty-nine per square inch. One possible reason for this is that toilets get cleaned regularly, unlike keyboards.

15

We live in a world of germs. Our body generally does a good job of keeping us safe, but it never hurts to clean up a bit. Focus your efforts in the kitchen and on things that are touched regularly, like cell phones, purses, and the mouse and keyboard of your computer. When it comes to germs, the toilet is the least of your † concerns!

may be times in life when you feel blue. Hopefully 1 you are seldom green with envy. We often use exp ressions2 related to colors to describe our moods. In reality, colors actu ally do have a strong effect on us mentally3 and physically. 05

HER E

Colors like red, orange, and yellow make people feel warmer. Red represents strong emotions like love, desire, and anger. It can excite you and even raise your blood pressure. To coo l down, look for colors from u the blue family, such as turquoise and gree n. These bring calmness, but they sometimes can lead to depression.4

Some therapistsu have taken to the idea that colors affect us and are using it to help people meditate u and find balance. British research has shown that color cho ice can be a u goo d diag nos tic too l, too . Wh en ask ed to cho ose a col or tha t refl ect ed the ir mo od, anx iou s 5 and 15 dep ress ed peo ple ofte n pick ed gra y. Non -an xiou s people often chose yellow. Scientists are look ing into† applying this technique to people with limi ted verbal u skills. For example, a doctor could show an individual6 som e colo rs and und erst and the per son ’s stat e of 20 mind by the color choice alone. With some fine-tuning,† this technique could be very useful with chil dren and people who are developmentally impaired. 10

T’S early

summer in Taipei. The heat and noise in this concrete jungle make people restless. However, near the busy downtown †

intersectionu of Zhongxiao and Bade, an oasis u of calm exists. Old Japanese-style buildings on grassy lawns1 are a happy change from the towering 05

skyscrapers around them. People rushing by slow down to appreciate the quiet beauty †

of what was once a brewery. Now, it is the Huashan 1914 Creative Park. On the lawn, a busy art fair is going on. There are tents selling handmade items and cool clothing. Nearby, street performersu work to impress2 visitors, and vendors provide delicious snacks. Cross the lawn, and you’ll come to a group of buildings. Each contains cute cafés, shops, 10

and exhibitions3 of paintings or photography. They also have space for live music and plays. Families with curious children spend their weekends enjoying the park’s many activities and attractions.4 This creates an atmosphere that is both energetic5 and relaxing. †

You don’t need a particular reason to visit Huashan 1914 Creative Park; just drop by and discover the fun that it has to offer. It can be your peaceful refuge in the urban jungle. * 中文翻譯請參閱第 72 頁
