THE COMMON COLD
Question: It is easy to catch cold but difficult get rid of .It can make you shiver in the middle of summer and sweat in the heart of winter. What is it?
Answer: The common cold!
Although everyone has had a cold, most people don’t understand what a cold is, what
causes it or why it is so difficult for doctors to cure .Colds are caused by small
particles called viruses. While bacteria can be studied under an ordinary light microscope, the structure of viruses was a mystery until the invention of electron microscope in 1930s.Viruses are parasites; they can not exist or function without the help of living cell. Animals, plants and even bacteria can be infected by viruses.
Cold viruses are carried by small droplets of water in the air. When you breathe in,
these viruses are drawn in and infect the cells of the throat-consequently, you catch
cold. Some viruses reach further down towards the lungs and then the infection is likely to be more serious.
The cells which line the throat produce a sticky liquid (called ’mucus“) which is constantly pushed up towards the nose by the movement of small hairs. In this way, unwanted particles which we breathe in can be removed; otherwise our lungs would fill up with dust and dirt. Infected cells produce a lot of mucus so that we have to sneeze and cough to get it out .
Although there are many things you buy to make you feel better, only time and your own body will cure your cold. Moreover, there are many different types of cold virus. Antibiotics are not always useful, because they kill bacteria rather viruses; it is also very difficult to kill virus without also killing the living cells which is supporting it.
Some scientists have found that people are more likely to catch a cold when they
are unhappy or under stress. This is because the immune system, which protects us against viruses, is less efficient when we are worried or depressed. As a result of this some doctors in England have tried different ways of talking to patients with colds. They have discovered that people with mild colds get better more quickly if doctor is kind and sympathetic than if he is unhelpful!

8-Write paragraphs of at least 100 words about “Ideal Teacher”
No one can deny that teacher is the corner stone of learning process. Without teacher education can not go or happen .Throughout history teachers were respected we know that from the pictures painted by ancient people .Teachers are said the successors of prophets. So A good teacher must have some qualities .He must be honest and reliable. They should be knowledgeable to offer pure information to students. In recent years we notice that the government pay due attention to teachers .It increased the salaries and the Minister promised to restore teacher's prestige and president Murak considered education as a national project. So all teacher must be ideal and believe that Allah may reward us .Igeal teacher should respect his colleague and leave any differences behind.
