at-home kids are named “generation nini” in Spain. They are those adults who still live at home and are neither working nor studying. But the problem is not limited to Spain. It is a worldwide problem.
In Italy, they are known as “bamboccioni” or big babies. There nearly 60 percent of 18-34-year-old adults still live in their parents’ home, up from almost 50 percent since 1983. Once kept ther e by the love for their mama’s home-cooked food, the economic crisis(经济危机)has seen a rise in adults left unable to hold down a steady job or afford a home of their own. Last year, an Italian government minister admitted that his mother washed his clothes and made the bed for him until he was 30. He demanded a law forcing young Italians to leave their parents’ home at 18 to stop them becoming hopelessly dependent on their parents.
In the UK, the government has made the term NEETS --- not in employment, education or training for these children. In England alone the percent of NEETS aged 19-24 surged
to 18.8 percent of the age group in the last quarter of 2017, up 1.4 percent on the same period a year before. The number of British men in their 20s living with their parents has risen from 59 percent to 80 percent in the past 15 years, while the number of women has risen from 41percent to 50 percent. The average age of the first-time house buyers is now 38.
In the US, the problem is known as the “full nest syndrom e(综合症)”. Adults there are left struggling to support adult children who have stayed at home with student debts and facing few job opportunities in a weak economy. A recent study shows almost a third of American adults aged 34 and under are living with their parents.

A. parents should make their children feel hopeless
B. young people should live on their own after 18
C. parents should never make the bed for their children
D. it is OK for adult children to live with their parents
26. The un derlined word “surged” in paragraph 3 can probably be replaced by

Every child should have a solid science education whether they want to be the next Albert Einstein or Michael Jordan. Science is all around us, it is everywhere, reaching everything that we do. The “we” in that last statement includes children. Children that understand how science plays a role in our everyday lives have a wonderful foundation (基础) for success in life.
Children can learn science at any age really. The earlier they start, the better. The best way for kids to learn is through play and repetition. There are wonderful science toys for preschool science activities. With play being the best way kids learn, it only makes sense when to introduce toys to them that encourage understanding science. Children love to use their imagination to have fun and to help them understand the world around them. So play is a wonderful time to be introducing science to them. Think of the games that we used to play: Don’t Spill the Beans, Don’t Break the Ice, the Telephone Game, Lincoln Logs. Each of these games has science behind
Children are by nature curious as they feel out the world, trying to make sense of what is around them. Science feeds that curiosity that they have. It is a hunger that needs to be encouraged and satisfied. Finding these toys is not as hard as one would think. To make sure that you get good quality toys, visit science toy shops online. These are the best places to find unique science toys, such as 3D space projectors, or Hydro Greenhouses.
Help your children appreciate the world around them by understanding the world around them. This way, they understand how we are all connected together. Children will not only question the world. but be able to come up with answers to those questions on their own.
Science is life.

The British are known for their sense of humor. However, it is often difficult for foreigners to understand their jokes. The main point to remember is that the British often use understatement.
Understatement means saying less than you think or feel. For example, if someone gets very wet in a shower of rain, he might say, “Its a little damp(潮湿的)outside.” Or, if someone is very impolite and shouts at another person, someone else might say, “She isn’t exactly friendly.” Understatement is often used in unpleasant situation or to make another person look silly. Understatement plays an important part in British humor.
Another key to understanding British humor is that the British like to make fun of themselves as well as others. They often laugh about the silly and unpleasant things that happen to their everyday life when someone accidentally falls over in the street. They also like to make jokes about people from different classes of society. They like to make jokes about their accents, the way they dress and the way they behave. What’s more, the British love to watch comedies about people who do not know how to behave in society. The comedies series Mr. Bean is a good example of this kind of humor.
