Below is part of a new shopping center’s market report.

Our busiest time is weekend afternoons, between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. About half the business of the week is done then. So it would be better if we move Weekend’s Best Buy from Saturday evening to Saturday afternoon when there may be more shoppers during the sale. We should also think about having more free buses during the weekend, as 75% of the shoppers who were interviewed said two buses an hour are just not enough.

Weekend evenings are second busiest, though it is not as good as last season. An interesting fact is that business is better on weekday evenings, usually one hour before closing, than on weekend mornings. Most of the shoppers then are people who live near or working parents who do their last-minute shopping. They together make up almost 60% of the business on weekday evenings. It might bring in more business if we open half an hour longer during weekdays, until 10:30 p.m.

Last month Jim brought a baby cat home from the pet shop. She is beautiful with gray and white hair. Jim gave her the name Popo. He and his family love her very much and often talk to her. Popo is very shy and afraid of strangers. Every time Jim brings his friends home, she will hide herself. It takes time to make friends with Popo. But when she sees you as a friend, she will be happy to be with you all the time. Popo often lies quietly next to Jim when he is home. Sometimes she sits by the window looking at the flowers in the garden.

The family is always busy, and it is not easy for them to get together. But since they got Popo, they have tried to spend time together playing with their little girl, who has become the center of their family life.

On Teachers’ Day, we thank our teachers for their hard work. We also celebrate this day to remember Confucius, the great Chinese teacher from 2,500 years ago. Well, that’s everything we’re taught about Teachers’ Day. But, the first Teachers’ Day was not on Confucius’s birthday, and it was not about thanking our teachers.

In 1930, Mr. Tai Shuang-qiu and other teachers celebrated the first Teachers’ Day in Nanjing. But there was nothing to celebrate. Teachers were paid very little and not respected. These teachers took this chance to shout out their problems. They had Teachers’ Day on June 6 because the date was easy to remember and near the end of the school year. This action by Mr. Tai and the other teachers was welcomed and followed by teachers from other cities. In 1939, the government made Teachers’ Day a national holiday. However, it was on August 27, the day when Confucius’s birthday was celebrated. Not everyone hailed this decision: Teachers’ Day was never about Confucius, and Confucius couldn’t speak for all the teachers either.

One funny thing was that the government was wrong about the date of Confucius’s birthday. In 1952, people found out he was in fact born on September 28. That was when we started to celebrate Teachers’ Day on Confucius’s real birthday

Helen: Here, Frank, this is the schedule for this semester.

Frank: Thanks, Helen. Anything new?

Helen: Yeah. We're going to study Latin this year.

Frank: Latin? Isn't that a dead language? Why should we learn a language that is not spoken anymore?

Helen: Well, we should. Many important books are written in Latin.

Frank: And who's going to teach it?

Helen: Mrs. Filch.

Frank: What? That old witch? Well...Yeah...she is the BEST teacher for a DEAD language.

Helen: Don't be so mean, Frank. It's going to be interesting.
