Now listen to the last part of the story, fill in the blankets with words you hear and make a comparison between the ending you desired and the one you heard.I squared my shoulders and saluted and held out the book to the woman, even though while I spoke I felt choked by the bitterness of my disappointment.;Im Lieutenant John Blanchard, and you must be Miss Maynell.Im so glad you could meet me, may I take you to dinner?;The woman face broadened into a tolerant smile.;I dont know what this is about, son,; she answered,;But the young lady in the green suit who just went by, she begged me to wear this rose on my coat, and she said if you were to ask me out to dinner,I should go and tell you that she is waiting you in the big restaurant across the street.She said it was some kind of test.; It not difficult to understand and admire Miss Maynell wisdom. 3556。

  • City councilwoman pushes a moratorium on opening of new fast food restaurants. In South-Central LA, teenagers scarf down fast food on their way to school. - me, it's good. I know it's bad but I still eat it. And a mother who's running late drives to McDonald's to save time. -There's never er, eating place you can go over here, to buy, er, like organic food. OK? There's no Trader Joe's over here. I go all the way to Torrance to Trader Joe's. That's miles away in LA traffic. Critics call it "food apartheid." -5% of the restaurants in south LA are fast-food restaurants. That’s a pretty shocking statistic.Especially compared to the city's west side, where only % of restaurants serve fast food. City Councilwoman Jan Perry is pushing a moratorium that would stop any new fast food places from opening in South Central. She hopes to see more restaurants and grocery stores like the one about to break ground. If approved by City Council, the ban would cover 3 square miles, and some say that hurts small businesses.-Cause' we think of the big fast food chains. What happens if I decide I wanna open a hamburger joint in that area?Joe Hicks runs an economic empowerment group. He says fast food places provide jobs, and people choose to eat there because the food tastes good and doesn't cost much.-So it's insulting to insist that government has to tell people what’s good them or not.The Health Department says more South-Central children are obese compared to other kids in LA County. Even though the chains have added healthier options to their s, supporters of the ban are demanding more grocery stores and casual restaurants that serve fresh vegetables and food that' not fried.-With gas price rises, it would be a lot more convenient if there was in our neighborhood.They are probably gonna vote on the moratorium in the fall, and again, if it passes, it doesn't mean these go away, just means no new ones would be allowed to be built. Chris Lawrence, CNN, Los Angeles.WORDS IN THE NEWS 1. scarf : verb (used with object), verb (used without object) Slangto eat, esp. voraciously (often fol. by down or up)eg: to scarf down junk food.. moratorium : n-count A moratorium on a particular activity or process is the stopping of it a fixed period of time, usually as a result of an official agreement. 5889。
