Welcome to Words and Their Stories. Today, we are going to talk about "autumn". Autumn is also called "fall". This is probably because it is the time when trees lose their leaves and they fall to the ground.
However, even earlier, the season was called "harvest". In the early days of the United States, autumn was a time for preparing for the winter months by collecting and preserving food. People gathered corn, nuts and berries. They also dried and salted meats to feed themselves through the long, cold winter.
To prepare for the winter months, some animals gather food. The squirrel(松鼠) , is well known for its skill in this activity. Squirrels gather and store seeds and nuts in their nests. This activity helps them survive the winter, and it also gives us a common expression.
To "squirrel something away" means to save it for future use. We often use this expression when talking about money and food. For example, a child might squirrel away his chocolate, hiding it from brothers and sisters. This guarantees the child can satisfy his sweet tooth at any time.
Unlike squirrels, who are active and busy during the autumn, many people slow down during this time. The expression "autumn years" refers to the later years of a person' s life, especially after a person has stopped working. For example, "She worked hard all her life. She saved her money and invested it wisely. So, she was able to enjoy her autumn years in comfort. She was finally able to travel around the world."
As summer ends, so does today's Words and Their Stories. And like summer, we will return, not in a year, but rather next week!
18. What was the earliest name of the season after summer?
A. Autumn.  B. Fall.  C Harvest  D. Summer.
19. What does the underlined word "preserving" probably mean in Paragraph 2?
A. Preventing food from going bad.  B. Hiding food in a big pool.
C. Selling food to other people.     D. Serving food with large dishes.
20. Why is the child who hides his chocolate mentioned in the passage?
A. To prove that kids love some chocolate.
B. To explain the phrase "squirrel away".
C. To teach children about the importance of sharing.
D. To show similarities between children and squirrels.

Beauty comes in many shades (色度). But some women find their shades not receiving enough attention in the cosmetics (妆品) industry.

Balanda Atis wants to end that. She is a chemist in Research and Innovation at the cosmetics company—L'Oreal, USA.She wants to create makeup that works for all women. As an African-American, she knows from her own experience how difficult it is for women of color to find makeup right for their skin.
So, Balanda Atis and other L'Oreal chemists began to explore. "We had the opportunity to travel across the U. S as well as internationally, such as South Africa, to make sure that the shades that we were creating were suitable for a large range of skin colors. "
"What we found is that you can use a really special colorant (着色剂), called ultramarine blue. And ultramarine blue is a truly clean, vivid, bright, rich color that allows you to go deeper, but as you go deeper, you're still able to have a very natural color to the skin "
Atis says many African-American families expect their children to become doctors or nurses. But she knew from a very early age she didn't want a career in medicine. The chemist says she always had a passion for science. She is happy that she married her love of science to cosmetics. She shares her joy with teenagers by giving talks at schools about the importance of science. For Atis, being able to relate science and beauty together is just fun.

So I got a ladder from the garden, put them against the wall, and began climbing towards the bedroom window. I am almost there when a voice below said, “I don't think the windows need be cleaning at this time of the night.” I looked down and nearly fell off the ladder when I saw policeman. I immediate regretted what I had done, but I said, “I enjoy cleaning windows on night.” “So do me,” answered the policeman in the same way. “Sorry for my interruption.

参考词汇:recommend 推荐 TV play 电视剧 version 版本 a classical novel 经典著作

参考范文:
Dear John,
How is everything going?
Learning from your mail last week that you are interested in Chinese fantasy literature, I`m going to recommend you a
book. It is a Chinese classical novel written by Wu Cheng’en called Journey to the West. The book, full of fascinating
stories, is probably the best-know fantasy literature in China. Besides, quite a number of movies and the TV plays have been
successfully adapted from it, which have been very popular with both old and young. By the way, don`t worry about your
Chinese because the English version is available on amazon.com.
Hope you like it.
Yours
Li Hua
