An X-ray is a spectrum of light. It is radiated through one’s body, it can be used for detecting his/her internal body organs. The X-ray was invented by a German Scientist, Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen. Despite the fact that X-rays can detect cancer, cysts and tumors, there are many conflicting opinions about the use of X-rays in the hospital.
Some people agree that an X-ray examination is beneficial. They argue that doctors should use an X-ray in examining a severe illness. If doctors do not use the X-ray, they could miss some important information, which is very useful in making a dignosis on a patient’s disease. This will sometimes cause a doctor to be inaccurate in prescribing medicine to cure an illness.
Other people however disagree with the use of an X-ray examination. They think that using an X-ray examination will cost them a lot of money. That is really true. Another reason is that the radiation of an X-ray has some risks to body tissues
As a result of this controversy, many people use traditional health cure to avoid the high cost of hospitals still insist on having X-ray examinations on patients to get an accurate diagnosis although the cost is very high

     In my opinion teachers should not smoke at school. There are several reasons why I strongly disagree if teachers do smoking at school.
     Firstly, no smoking regulation applied to students will not be effective at all when teachers as a model do not give a bad example for their students, especially in behavior.
Secondly, smoking makes classroom and school environment dirty. Most teachers who smoke carelessly usually throw away the cigarette ashes and ends everywhere. They scatter on the table on the floor and the school yard.
     Thirdly, passive smokers become the victim of active smokers. Smoke coming out from cigarettes can dangerously affect the people around. Teachers should bear in mind that their students inhale poisonous smoke while enjoy the taste of their cigarettes.
    Lastly, smoking makes nasty smell. For smokers, cigarettes they love have nice smell. In fact cigarette ends make bad smell. Fellow teachers always complain the smell of the cigarette ends left by their colleagues who smoke. In classroom students have to fan cigarette smoke to get rid of the annoying smell.
     Considering the moral, healthy and environment reasons, I believe that teachers must not always smoke at school.

Artist      : Leslie Feist
Album    : Let it Die

                 In the age of excess, it takes more than just courge to embrace simplicity and  astripped down approach to music. For a Canadian indie pop singer, Lislie Feist, a minimalist approach are warmth and excelent. With a touch of jazz and trip-hop around the edges, her musical really kicks off.
                Armed only with an acoustic guitar, drum loops, thin-sounding keyboards and jazz-tinged vocals, Feist triumphantly assembled a record of 13 flawlessly sunny pop songs beaming with beuty.
                Over thin layer of ethereal soundscape, Feist croons fluid vocals that feel like drops of morning dew allling from a pine tree, as in Now At Last and Lover’s Spit. In fact, Feist’s vocals alone could send listeners swooning.
                Feist’s craft here hides a more wild past. She was a member f a punk outfit in Calgary called Placebo that once opened for the Ramones. The only elements of punk that still remain at her are spontaneity and naturalness.

The Digestive System
                Human body is made u of countless million of cells. Food is needed to build up new cells and replace the worn out cells. However, the food that we take must be changed into substances that can be carried in the blood to the places where they re needed. This process is called digestion.
                The first digestive takes place in the mouth. The food we eat is broken up into small pieces by the action of teeth, mixed with saliva, a juice secreted by glands in the mouth. Salive contains digestive juices which moisten the food, so it can be swallowed easily.
                From the mouth, food passes through the esophagus (the food passage) into the stomach. Here, the food is mixed with te juices secreted by the cells in the stomach for several hours. Then the food enters the small intestine. All the time the muscular walls of the intestine are squeezing, mixing and moving the food onwards.
In a few hours, the food change into acids. These are soon absorbed by the villi (microscopic branch projections from the intestine walls) and passed into the bloodstream.
