Rupert Isaacson was born in Africa, and grew up in London and in the English countryside, where he discovered his love of horses. Because he grew up hearing so many fascinating memories about Africa from his parents, he went there and lived with the people called The Bushmen of the Kalahari Desert.
By the year 2000, Rupert was already working as a reporter, writing articles and guidebooks about Africa and India. He met his wife Kristin in India. Today, they live with their son, Rowan, in the US. But Rupert faced the greatest challenge of his life when, at the age of two, Rowan was diagnosed (诊断) with an illness that influenced his ability to communicate with others.
Rupert discovered that spending time with horses and riding them was helping Rowan. But unluckily, the Bushmen of the Kalahari do not have horses. So the family set out for?Mongolia, where horses have been important for long. Rupert has written about this journey to help his son in his book Horse Boy , and he has produced a documentary of the same name. In the film, people have the chances to see the family travelling in Mongolia, riding horses and meeting healers (治疗师) in order to help Rowan.
Because working with horses has helped Rowan, Rupert set up The Horse Boy Foundation on his farm in Texas. It is a school that teaches people how to use horses for healing. Besides writing another book, The Long Ride Home , about travelling with Rowan to Africa, Australia and Arizona in the US, Rupert has also produced the documentary Endangerous , with Rowan as host, about dangerous animals that are endangered.

Wind power is a very clean source of energy. This is how wind power works. Wind makes windmills spin (旋转). When the windmills spin, they make electricity. Then we can use the electricity. A lot of people think that wind power is new, but that’s not true. For thousands of years, people have used wind?to sail boats and move water. We still do those things today, but?use wind power to make electricity.
Wind power is a very popular source of energy. Most people think that we should use it more and more. First of all, it’s clean. Windmills don’t pollute the environment at all. Second, we can use wind power forever. After all, we will always have wind. Also, wind power is cheap, and it’s getting even cheaper.
A lot of people don’t understand wind power very well. They believe that there are problems with wind power, but many of those problems are not real. For example, some people say that windmills are dangerous for birds. They used to be true, but it isn’t true anymore. Old windmills killed birds because they spun very fast. New windmills spin slowly, and they aren’t dangerous for birds.
However, there are real problems with windmills. One problem is that many people think windmills are very ugly. This is a problem for people, because windmills are often in very pretty areas. Also, wind doesn’t blow all the time, so we can’t use wind power all the?time. Finally, windmills are noisy.
Wind power is becoming more and more common. Right now, more than 80 countries use wind power. About 2.5 percent of the world’s power comes from the wind. For some countries, that number is a lot higher. Wind power gives Denmark more than 25 percent of its electricity.

There are some things that are almost impossible to say to our close friends —especially if we want (A)them to be our friends for life. Are you wondering what problems others have?
“I can’t stand your other friends.”
My best friend, Kate, sometimes hangs out with some people that I really don’t like. I think they have a bad influence on her, and she only spends time with them because they are “cool”. Could you tell me if I should bring the matter up with her, or if it would be better for me to keep quiet? I don’t want to lose her as a friend.
—Linda “I won’t help you cheat.”
(B)My closest friend, Kim, has lost interest in school and studying. He says he’s bored with the whole thing, so he often asks me whether I’ll let him copy my homework. By now I’ve said no, but he keeps asking me. I told him, “I think we’ll get in trouble.” but he just laughed and told me not to worry. I don’t want to put my grades at risk, but I’m afraid to face my friend about this, so I just keep avoiding the topic. How can I get him to stop asking?
I was wondering if you could give me some suggestions for dealing with my problem.
—Mike “No, I CAN’T do that for you!”
Anna is my best friend. We get along with each other well, but she is asking me to do things for her all the time. “Could you help me pick out some new clothes? Would you mind if I borrowed your bike? Can you look after my apartment while I’m away?” And these are just a few examples. I’ve said yes so many times that now I’m afraid I’ll hurt her feelings if I say no. Any ideas?
