"Wake up, Mark!" Kathleen yelled."OK, Mark, last weekend you learned how to swim, so there's no reason to be afraid of the beach. Let's go," Kathleen said, as she pulled him toward the sand.
"Yes, but look at all the sand! It's going to get in all of our stuff," Mark answered.
"This is going to be fun!" Kayleen said. On the beach, Mark found a place to put up their beach umbrella and put down their beach chairs. A crab came out of its hole and looked up at him.
"Hello," it said, waving at Mark with one of its claws.
"Eek!" yelled Mark. "Kathleen, it's trying to pinch me!"
"Don't worry, I never pinch elephants," the crab said. "Welcome to my beach."
"Thanks," said Kathleen, "but we can't stay and talk. We're going to swim out to those rocks."
"Oh, I don't think that's a good idea," said the crab. "There is no lifeguard at this beach."
"Well, we both know how to swim," answered Kathleen as she pulled a very scared-looking Mark toward the water.
"Watch out, there's a strong current!" the crab yelled after them. Mark and Kathleen swam out to the rocks, but when they got there, they were very tired. They rested and then started swimming toward the shore, but the tide had changed and the current had gotten much stronger.
"Help!" Mark yelled, and even Kathleen looked scared.
"Swim toward the side!" the crab yelled from the shore. (Kayleen Hartman, Staff writer)

You can still eat what you want (3/5) 你想吃的還是可以吃（三） A: Foods with non-refined starch, such as brown rice, whole grain bread and oats are less easy to digest, so they will release the glucose more slowly and steadily, just like if you turn on the faucet more carefully, so that your blood sugar won’t jump up all of a sudden. B: So we should eat more non-refined starchy foods, is that right? A: Yes, so you should be eating less of foods such as white rice, noodles, white bread, cakes and cookies — because these are all refined. B: I’ve been hearing the phrase “low GI diet” a lot recently, is this
You can still eat what you want (4/5) 你想吃的還是可以吃（四） A: If you don’t want to go into a food coma after eating food, there is another thing you could try: eating more fruit and vegetables. B: Ah, I’ve tried that! For a while I wanted to lose weight, and I only ate vegetables and chicken salad for all three meals, and I ended up not being able to sleep because I was so hungry. I gave that idea up pretty quickly. A: That was a bit extreme: I’m not surprised you couldn’t see it through. Starchy foods will make you feel satiated. I’m not saying you shouldn’t eat
The original Superman Clark Kent fell for a journalist, and his son Jonathan Kent is doing the same, although this time the new Superman is falling in love with a man. On Oct. 11, to coincide with US “National Coming Out Day,” DC Comics announced that the new Superman will have a romance with male reporter Jay Nakamura. The couple will even kiss in a comic to be published next month, the publisher said, describing the new Superman as “bisexual.” As CNN commented, Jon will not be the first queer superhero when he comes out as bisexual next month, but he
A: You could try eating often but smaller portions, so that you won’t be digesting too much food at any one time, which will be easier on your stomach and your blood sugar won’t jump. You can still eat what you want. B: To be completely honest, I’ve tried that, too, with the result that I never stopped eating, haha. But I have found that if my jaw is always moving and my teeth are always biting into things, I don’t feel so sleepy when I’m studying. A: Then you should eat a low calorie food like konnyaku or
