At a dinner party the guests and their hosts were involved in a heated discussion , or rather an argument concerning the question of whether women had as much self-control as men .As they argued, signs appeared to one of the guests that a cobra was present in the room . While his first impulse was to jump back ,he knew that this would be a mistake;so he urged the other diners in a commanding tone to hold still without telling them why .Shorty , The cobra emerged on the veranda ; and the man ran quickly to the door to slam it shut . It was soon discovered that the cobra had crawled across the foot of the hostess,who kept calm , not uttering a sound.Thus the conclusion of this crisis laid bare the fact that women have as much self-control as men.
As more states require high school students to pass competence exams before graduating , evidence suggests that cheating among students is also on the rise. Many educators are concerned about dishonest behavior among examinees, and have launched a number of campaigns to control cheating . In spite of their efforts , however , cheating seems to be increasingly contagious among students in both high schools and universities . Numerous arguments have been made about the cause of this widespread problem . Some experts believe it is linked to changes in American society as a whole since , unlike earlier times, modern American is largely a nation of strangers . Additionally, moral values are not taught or reinforced as they were in “the good old days.”
1.While I was waiting to enter university, I saw advertised in a local newspaper a teaching post at a school in a suburb of London about ten miles from where I lived. Being very short money and wanting to do something useful, I applied, fearing as I did so, that without a degree and with no experience in teaching my chances of getting the job were slim.
However, three days later a letter arrived, asking me to go to Croydon for an interview. It proved an awkward journey: a train to Croydon station; a ten-minute bus ride and then a walk of at least a quarter of a mile . As a result I arrived on a hot June morning too depressed to feel nervous.
