    HEADLINE: U.S satellite hit the earth

    LEAD:

    On September 23, 2011, a defunct U.S. satellite is expected to crash down to the earth. Unluckily, nobody knows where or when exactly it will hit. This is very dangerous to the people all over the world. So everybody pay attention to the news today! But the experts also said that the public need not to worry too much. Because it will mostly likely fall into the ocean or hit an uninhabited area.

    US justice department paid $16 for muffins
    As we all know American is a strong country in the world. especially the economic ,On the other hand it also has some economic problems inner their country .
    Llike Senator Chuck Grassley had said“it is why US taxpayers were cynical about government ”.When we investigate about this .we find the “extravagant and wasteful" conference spending by the US justice department, like muffins( $16 ) and biscuits, also the internal audit had found it is outrage at the $8 coffees and $32-per-person snacks. Why it is became illegal thing in this big and rich country? The US owes more than $14tn and has an annual budget deficit topping $1.4tn. The justice department had spent $4,200 on 250 muffins at an August 2009 legal conference at a hotel near the White House. Also we can guess it will take place at a time when there were no strict limits on food and beverage spending. The most serious thing is the department spent $121m on more than 1,800 conferences in 2008 and 2009 – exceeding its own spending limits, according to the audit. and It spent $600,000 just on planning for five conferences. So the government take some actions to stop it become serious, at the same time the action had reduce conference spending, the first six months of this year. We can see from this news "People are outraged and rightly so." Also We should lucky to say the a congressional super committee

    Yemen unrest: 'Troops attack' opposition camp in Sanaa
    Government troops in Yemen have opened fire on protesters in Sanaa, killing at least one person, reports say.
    The violence comes after President Ali Abdullah Saleh earlier returned from Saudi Arabia three months after surviving an assassination attempt.
    There were also reports that late on Friday government troops tried to storm the square, which was being guarded by armed men opposed to President Saleh.
    Activists have been camped out in Change Square since January, demanding an end to Mr Saleh's decades-long rule.
    Earlier on Friday, at least 13 people reportedly died in fighting in the capital.
    "The Yemeni people have suffered enough and deserve a path towards a better future," White House spokesman Jay Carney said

    The 62-year-old set out from the Cuban capital Havana at 18:00 local time (22:00 GMT) on Friday.

    The Los Angeles woman is looking to break her own record for open-water swimming without a shark cage.

    Her first attempt at the swim, in August, was cut short by an 11-hour asthma attack.

    A Protestant church in Indonesia's central Java province has been hit by a suspected suicide attack, say police.

    A police spokesman told reporters that only the suspected bomber had died but that at least 15 other people were injured in the blast in Kepunton, Solo.

    Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim country but is officially a secular state.

    Radical Islamist groups have carried out a number of deadly attacks in the past few years.

    Witnesses said the bomber struck as people were leaving the Bethel Injil Sepuluh church after a Sunday service.

    Some witnesses said three other people had been killed, but Lt Col Djihartono told the AFP news agency that only the bomber was confirmed dead.

    "We're still investigating if there are other people killed," he said, adding that an anti-terror unit was on the scene collecting evidence.

    This passage talks about one of the greatest educators in China - Confucius' attitude toward education.He thought that he would turn in his grave if he knew how many students in China are learning by rote these days. He would get even more upset if he knew that almost all are taught the same way regardless of their different levels of aptitude and attitude. So different students shoud use different ways tu teach them such as his students:Zi Lu Ran You Yan Hui. These students were his successfull example.One of his primary principles was "teaching according to each student's ability

    His Utopia was a place where "a public spirit will rule all under the heaven when the great Way prevails

    Summary: A lot of people are regularly accused of being too confident. However, the highest achievers are more often than not those who over-rate their ability, according to the news. For many years, there hasn’t been a good explanation for why we’re so confident,. Now I know that it is reasonable after reading this news. The confidence is surely pretty good quality and it makes a great many people successful.However,the over-confidence can also cause problems and lead to wrong decision making, unrealistic expectations, danger and failure. So we are not inferior but shouldn’t be over-confident either.
