People cannot get away from advertisements which promotes cheap goods and free gifts. Last week, I have read an ad for a sale. See the attractive prices for the goods, I couldn’t help driving to the supermarket. Like the advertisement said, most of the things there were much more cheaper than usual. In no time, I filled two baskets of 10 bars of soap, 2 very nice-looked kitchen knives, and so on. Before my husband got home and saw all the things I bought, he said, “What do you need all these things for?” He was right. There was already enough soap at home, and there was already two knives in the kitchen drawer. I think I should smart about ads in future and not be tricked by them.

I take the train to work every morning from a train station near my house. I can get to the station quite easily because there is a short 36 to the station. But in the summer, it can get quite smelly because of all the 37 . So I always try to 38 through it. Today I was trying to do so as usual 39 something made me stop for a moment. I saw the most beautiful 40 by an old woman walking in front of me with the help of a white 41 .
She was short and 42 and had white hair. She was walking slowly as each 43 took some effort. I hadn’t specially 44 her at first, until she stopped near a rubbish bin.
She slowly placed her walking stick 45 the rubbish bin. Then she leaned(斜倚著) on it with her right hand. She bent down and 46 the rubbish. She clearly found it 47 and it took her a while. She picked some rubbish with her left hand and 48 straightened(伸直) herself up again. All the while she used the rubbish bin to 49 herself. She threw the rubbish inside the bin and then 50 walking. It all took her great effort.
There’s so much rubbish and no one ever does 51 about it. I was 52 _ to see this old woman make such a great effort to keep even a small part of it 53 ! I haven’t been able to 54 thinking about that all day.
I want to follow her 55 . I’ve decided to pick up rubbish off the ground if I meet from now on. I hope people will do the same as I do.

DuctBot measured 23 centimeters in length, 19 centimeters in width and 9 centimeters in height and weighs just two kilograms.
The robot is designed to snake through dark, narrow air conditioning ducts (管道) and clean them. A pair of LEDs fitted on the robot light up the dirty scenery, so it can be captured(捕獲，拍攝) by a camera.
In order to control it more easily, Mr. Azad chooses to fix DuctBot on wheels. The robot can clean off lots of dirt, as well as dead pigeons and insects. Keeping indoor air in good quality and monitoring carbon dioxide levels in buildings with central air conditioning is a challenge. It is important in some places where clean air can mean a difference between life and death, such as hospitals. Dirty air has a bad influence on people’s health.
EPSCO, a Dubai?based company which specializes in improving indoor air quality, read about Mr. Azad’s invention in a national newspaper after he had won an international robotics competition. EPSCO had cleaning equipment, but it needed someone to get into those ducts to do the dirty dangerous work. Across India, for example, the task still falls to children. They are small enough to go through those ducts.
In 2005, Mr. Azad who was still at university decided to do something about it. Six years later his own company, Robosoft Systems, has Bluestar, EPSCO and the Indian Navy, some leading air condition makers, as partners.
Mr. Azad and his ten employees are currently exploring robot designs to examine oil tanks or sewage (污水) pipes. Their biggest challenge is to make the robots user-friendly enough. Mr. Azad hopes that the robot could eventually be operated not by engineers but by workers. There will be lots of difficulties they need to overcome in the future.
