Bill and Jill were going to visit Da-wei and Li-hua Wu in Taiwan for several days. Before they left America, Bill and Jill tried to learn about Chinese food and Taiwanese ways of doing things. They wanted to be polite. They learned that most people in Taiwan eat rice, drink tea, and take off their shoes when they go into a friend's apartment. Bill and Jill even learned to use chopsticks.

At the same time, Da-wei and Li-hua learned about American food and American ways of doing things. They wanted to be friendly. When Bill and Jill came to the Wu's house, Da-wei and Li-hua told them to keep their shoes on. Later they went out for dinner. They ate pizza and drank Coke. The next few days, they had breakfast in a coffee shop and ate hamburgers in a fast-food restaurant.

On their way back to America, Bill and Jill were thinking about why they never ate rice or drank tea or ate with chopsticks. They never took off their shoes when they visited the Wu family. They thought that living in Taiwan was just like living in America.

Dear Mr. Help:

Daniel was my best friend in high school. I 39 him for the first time on the school bus. He was nice, and most important of all, we both were interested in sports. We soon became good friends. I 40 basketball with him after school in the gym. High school was a great time for us, and we enjoyed the "men's talk" between us.

But things 41 since we graduated. Daniel can't see me very often because he's got a girlfriend. I try to talk to him, but he keeps avoiding me. Daniel 42 me several times that he needs more time to be with his dear Gloria. How can a girlfriend be more important than a best friend? Do you think I should find a new friend? Or should I get a girlfriend, too?

Johnny

Why is getting enough sleep important to you? Several studies have shown that people who don't sleep enough weigh more than people who rest well. They also are more likely to make mistakes and get headaches.

How much sleep do you need? Little children usually need 11 to 14 hours a day; school-age children, 10 to 11 hours; and teenagers, 9 and a half hours.

What are good sleep habits? Do not eat right before you go to bed, try to go to bed at the same time every day, and do not watch TV or read in bed.
