Luo Jingyu，19，has four years of experience of running business.He is also a freshman in the arts department of Hubei University.
Luo Jingyu is from an ordinary family.He said，“My parents told me if I wanted something I should make an effort to get it，so I earned pocket money by doing housework when I was little.” The dream of running his own business grew in his heart.He said，“I want to be a successful person，like Alibaba's Ma Yun.”
When Luo was a junior student，he had the idea of selling lanterns(灯笼)when he saw many people flying Chinese lanterns in a square.Luo bought some lanterns from a store，but the sales were not as good as he had expected.Then he found another way to do business.He bought lanterns on the Internet at a very low price.Finally he easily made 5，000 yuan in two days.
With a happy beginning，Luo planned to open a dress shop.“My parents didn't support me opening a dress shop，so I had to borrow 120，000 yuan for it.” Although he did market research before starting，the business wasn't very good because his taste in fashion wasn't accepted by customers.The shop eventually closed down after half a year.
After experiencing a big loss，he decided to do something he was familiar with—selling painting tools.As a fine arts student，he knew the market.He convinced his friends to invest one million yuan in his shop.With a good business mind and a lot of effort，the sales of the shop reached six million yuan in a year.
Even though Luo is rich，he uses a cheap cell phone and does not wear luxury(奢华的)clothes.He has a simple lifestyle.“It isn't easy to make money，so money should be used on something worthwhile，” he said.

Many kids help out around the house with housework such as emptying the dishwasher，cleaning the floor，and taking out the waste thing.In exchange，some kids get some pocket money or other rewards such as extra computer time.
Paying kids for housework is one of the most hotly debated topics，especially at a time when everyone is more concerned about money.The logic behind tying allowances to housework is that since grownups get paid to do their jobs，we should pay kids to do their jobs－in this case，every day household housework.
But some people do not think that kids should get rewards for doing housework.Susie Walton，an expert，believes that by rewarding kids，parents are sending a message that work isn't worth doing unless you get something in return.“Running any kind of household is a team effort，”Walton told TFK(Time for Kids)．“A home is a living space for everyone in the family.It's important for kids to see that we all have responsibilities in the house，and that families decide together how they want their home to look，and how they are going to keep it looking like everyone wants it to look.”
Other people believe that getting a cash allowance or other reward motivates kids to do housework，and it also teaches them real world lessons about how we need to work to earn money.There are also apps(程序)that give kids points and digital gifts that can be redeemed(兑现)either online or in the real word.“Our goal is to empower(授权)kids so they can earn rewards，”says Chris Bergman，founder of ChoreMonster.“Kids need rewards to help motivate them.”

A．Some money. B．Some help. C．Some gifts. D．Some promises.
8．According to Chris Bergman，kids ．
A．should be given digital gifts if they do housework
B．should know they work in order to earn money
C．should be empowered to do housework
D．are motivated to do housework by getting rewards

The room was already packed with people when Lily arrived for the meeting at George Jones's house.After a quick “hello”to their friends，Lily and her family sat down in some empty spaces on the floor.
Lily's parents，like everyone else at the meeting，were tenant farmers.That meant they did not have their own land.Instead，they farmed land for other people.Lily had grown up helping her parents plant and harvest(收割)cotton.After paying the land owner for the use of the land，they hardly had enough money left for food and clothes.
The Great Depression(大萧条)，however，had changed everything.The price of cotton had dropped very low because nobody could afford to buy it.Communities(社区)such as Lily's，which was outside of Florence，Alabama，were suffering even more than the big cities.
“We can't go on this way！”one woman said.“We don't even have enough to eat！”
There were more voices as other farmers joined.
“There's no money for Dad's medicine！”
“Things are getting worse instead of better！”
“And there's nothing we can do about it！”
Finally，George Jones，the manager of all the tenant farms，held up his hand for silence.“That's where you're wrong.What if we were to start our own business？”
“Start our own business？”Lily called out.“Selling what？”
“Brooms(扫帚)，”George replied simply.
“Will that work？”asked Lily.
“Think about it.Everyone uses them.We can grow the broomcorn grass used in making the brooms ourselves，and then sell the brooms we make.The money won't be much，but it will help.”
Once again，the room was filled with voices.In the days that followed，everyone was busy.Lily helped plant the broomcorn that would be harvested and used in the future.A few months later，their first batch(一批)of brooms was ready.Looking at these new brooms，Lily felt sure they would sell quickly.

If you are going on vacation，you certainly hope you can enjoy yourself and at the same time，not spend too much money. 16
Remember any food you take will help you save a lot.

Carry your own DVDs and laptop.
