1970 was World conservation(保护)Year. The United Nations wanted everyone to know that the world is in danger. They hoped that governments would act quickly in order to “conserve” nature. Here is one example of the problem. At one time there were 1,300 different plants, trees and flowers in Holland(荷兰),but now only 866 remain. The others have been destroyed by modern man and his technology. We can’t live without these things. We are changing the earth, the air an water, an everything that grows an lives. We can’t live without these things. If we continue like this, we shall destroy ourselves.
What will happen in the future? Perhaps it is more important to ask What must we do now? "The people who will be living in the world of tomorrow are the young of today. A lot of them know that conservation in necessary.
Many are helping to save our world. They plant trees, build bridges across rivers in forests, and so on. In a small town in the United States a large group of girls cleaned the banks of 11 kilometers of their river. Young people may hear about conservation through a record called “No one’s going to change our world”. It was made by the Beatles, Cliff Richard and other singers. The money from it will help to conserve wild animals.

Before roads needed traffic lights, railways had used signals(信号)to control train traffic. In early days, these signals included a ball and something that looked like a kite. When the kite was on top, it meant danger；when the ball was raised. it was safe.
In 1841, a developed railway signal was used at the London station. It included a signal arm in the horizontal(水平的)position which meant "stop". The signal was painted red so that it was easy to see and could attract the drivers' attention.
At night, oil lights were added on the top. A red light meant stop and a white light meant the drivers could go on.
In January 1876, a train knocked on another train running ahead on the same road, because the signals were not clear enough. 13 people were killed in the accident and the others were badly hurt.
Then people changed the signal. The signal for "stop" became a red light and a yellow light was added to tell the drivers to drive carefully. In 1893. a green light took the place of the white light, because the white light was often mistaken for a street or house light.
Since railway signals were introduced, city of officials(官员)decided to try them out on the roads of London.

A doctor called called Jack and Todd is very interested in cleaning water as well as saving money, so he has tried many ways, and in the end he developed a small and affordable system to clean waste water-the Living Machine. The machine can clean waste water in our home and in our business.

Second, a few days later, the water is brought into a greenhouse full of plants and fish. With the help of sunlight, plants and animals, many chemicals can be removed from the water. That makes the water cleaner. Then the water can be used for washing or bathing. Though it can’t be used for drinking or cooking, the water is clean enough to water the flowers, wash the dog and bathe.

After the Civil War, more factories appeared in the United States More factories meant that more people were needed to work in them. These people came from all over the country and all over the world. At the time, there were no laws to stop children from working in a factory, so many of the workers were small children.Many children left school and went to work when they were only twelve or thirteen years old. If a family member was hurt, the son or daughter had to go to work at an even younger age. Children as young as eight worked in factories. By the end of the 1800s,twenty percent of children from ten to sixteen were work in all the children had a hard life. Because of their age, factory owners paid them less money. Children could not do the work of men, so factory owners thought it was deserved to pay them less. Also, paying them less meant the factory owner made more money.Working for too long hours was another big problem. Most children worked for twelve to fourteen hours a day. There was no time for them to go to school and it was bad for their health.

The second time, her family told her she had to leave school so that her two brothers could stay there.
“I want to study," Ma wrote in her diary. “Why can boys study, but girls not? It would be wonderful if I could stay at school forever.”
Ma loves school so much because she wants to live a better life.“My parents work hard in the fields but they are still poor. They have no knowledge. Most girls in my village leave school early and get married when they are young. I don't want that kind of life," says Ma.
After her story became known, many French students sent money to her and other poor girls in Zhangjiashu so that they could stay at school.
Ma's dream is still the same as ever to study. She hopes to go to Tsinghua University and then become a reporter. "Then I can find poor kids like me and help them," she says.

They had to go to bed when it was dark and they didn't listen to CDs or watch television. Now people can watch TV computer games until midnight and live in warm buildings. And she doesn't need to carry water from a well(井) and wood into the house to cook over fire every day. It's a pity that they didn't have a washing machine.Now she only needs to put the dirty clothes into the machine.
