Filial piety(孝心) is China's most important morality and involves strong deference(顺心) to one's parents. Thus, filial piety is an important value when it comes to treating one's immediate family, elders and superiors in general.
Filial piety was originally mentioned in the Western Zhou，__1.__.
Filial piety is a general attitude of offering love, respect，support, and deference to one's parents and other elders in the family, such as grandparents or older siblings._2.__.Besides，it involves working hard in order to provide material comforts for parents.
The idea stems from the fact that parents give life to their children，and subsequently support them throughout their developing years in terms of providing food, education，and material needs._3.__.
By looking at the Chinese character for filial piety，you will learn a lot about the term's definition.

I did not go on my first hike until my mid－30s.I could blame it on the fact that I grew up on the Great Plains of South Dakota and North Dakota. _1.D__ Having never gone, I didn't see the value and always shook my head when asked.
_2.G__ At the urging of my wife, and with my two young kids, we walked a beautiful forest path on a cool August morning. I carried a small backpack with water and snacks(小吃)．When we reached the top，we ate lunch together overlooking a perfectly still pond and a scenic Vermont.
A few weeks ago, my 11－year－old son, my 61－year－old dad，and I hiked Camelback Mountain in Phoenix. Last weekend，I hiked down the Grand Canyon with my son along the South Kaibab Trail. And later this week, my wife and daughter will join us to walk the Waterfall Trail in the White Tank Mountains._3.B__
Now, just to be clear, by no means would I classify myself；as an expert hiker._4.A__ And I have no plans to climb Mount Kilimanjaro or walk the Appalachian Trail.

If you're a gamer who's constantly glued to your phone, it could be time to ask for medical help.
On June 18, 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially listed “gaming disorder” as a mental health condition._1.A__
“Video games are like a non－financial kind of gambling(赌博) from a psychological point of view，” Mark D． Griffiths, a professor from Nottingham Trent University in the UK, told the Associated Press (AP). “Gamblers use money as a way of keeping score, while gamers use points.”
“People need to understand this doesn't mean every child who spends hours in their room playing games is an addict，otherwise doctors are going to be flooded with requests for help，”Joan Harvey, a spokeswoman for the British Psychological Society, told AP.
_3.F__For example, a 21－year－old Chinese woman surnamed Wu in Guangdong province went blind in one eye after playing the mobile game King of Glory for a whole day. “On days when I have no work, I usually get up at 6 am, eat breakfast and play until 4 pm，” she told the South China Morning Post. “Then I'll eat something, have a nap(小睡) and play until 1 am.”
Wu isn't alone. According to a study published by China Youth Daily, about one in five young Chinese people play online video games for at least four to five hours per day._4.B__In April 2018, the Ministry of Education issued a notice asking Chinese schools and parents to prevent students from becoming addicted to the Internet and games.

What's the purpose of building patience abilities? In a word，happiness. Better relationships, more success. But indeed it takes efforts to build them successfully._1.__Thus, when the big ones come, we will have developed the patience we need for hard times.
Understand the addictive nature of anger and impatience. We, human beings, are still constructed with our old reptilian (爬行动物的) brain that protects our physical and emotional survival. On the emotional survival side, we want our way to get ahead, to achieve, and to “look good”. Let's just face it._2.__So the first step in growing patience is to get in touch with the addictive quality of the opposite of patience—anger，impatience, blame and shame. We all have them. And we can grow beyond them.
Upgrade our attitude towards discomfort and pain. Pain has its purposes and pushes us to find solutions—we try to change the other person, situation or thing that we think is causing our discomfort. But the problem is that it is not the outside thing that's the source of our pain, but how our mind is set._3.__
Pay attention when the impatience or pain starts. Most of us don't really realize it when we are feeling even the smallest—but very present—painful feelings._4.__But to really care for ourselves, get curious about what's actually happening in the moment inside you. Focusing on what's actually happening，you can notice the worry of not wanting what's happening，the resistance.
_5.__When you find yourself impatient, or angry with yourself, you can remind yourself that you are growing, and that，“Sure, this is understandable; this is what happens to me when I'm bothered.” You can say to yourself, “It's true. I don't like this; this is uncomfortable, but I can tolerate it.”
A．Practice positive self－talk.
B．So the solution to pain is an inside job.
C．Patience abilities benefit you in many ways.
D．Learn to forgive yourself for being impatient in hard times.
E．We ignore the fact that we're in pain and focus completely on fixing the problem.
F．The urge to protect ourselves and what we consider valuable is absolutely habit－forming.
G．Effective ways are recommended to train ourselves to work with little pain and annoyance.

Some people put their bicycles away once they learn how to drive a car. For many people, bicycling is not just an easy way of getting around town but also an exciting sport._1.C__.
One kind of race is the time trial. Each racer leaves the starting line at a different time and heads hard for the finish line. The cyclist who covers the distance in the shortest amount of time wins the race._2.B__， because the bicycles are spread out and are not likely to run into each other.
Another kind of race is more difficult. A few city blocks are closed to traffic. Then all the racers line up in a tight pack and begin racing at the same time._3.F__.The race requires more than speed. It also requires skillful handling of the bicycle as it runs at full speed around other bicycles. The racer who completes all the laps first is the winner.
_4.D__. Racers have to cover anywhere from 35 miles to almost 3,000 miles. The race course may be a straight stretch of road or a long series of roads across the country. The prize goes to the first person who crosses the finish line.

Little Etiquette(礼仪) Rules for Flying on an Airplane
Being a polite passenger starts with just a few easy steps.
Help your fellow traveler
_1.__， offer to lift a fellow passenger's up there，too. Not only is it kind, but it could make the boarding process more efficient for everyone else.
Keep your personal things, well, personal
It's important to be mindful of your personal belongings._2.__， as you walk down the aisles (过道), by keeping it in front of you and close to your body. And once you sit down，you should stay there, and make sure you have everything you will need for the flight once you settle in your seat. Reaching over other passengers to access the overhead storage during the flight is uncomfortable for everyone.
In the narrow space of an airplane, maintaining your personal space will go a long way towards making a smoother ride for everyone. Let the middle－seat passenger use the armrests (it's the least you can do), and keep your legs within the width of the chair frame.
Be willing to swap seats with a family
Airlines sometimes reserve certain seats for special passengers or charge extra fees for adjacent (毗连的) ones，making it tough for family members to buy seats together._4.__， offer to switch seats so that a family can sit beside each other; it's a kind gesture that they won't forget._5.__， as switching seats while everyone is boarding can be an inconvenience for those standing in the walkways.
A．If you're traveling alone
B．If they avoid eye contact
C．Avoid bringing smelly food
D．Respect your (limited) space
E．Avoid hitting other passengers with your bag
F．While you're loading your carry－on bag into the overhead space
G．But be sure to delay swapping until the plane has reached the safe altitude
