Building Trust in a Relationship Again

You didn’t lose “everything”.Once trust is lost，what is left? Instead of looking at the situation from this hopeless angle角度，look at everything you still have and be thankful for all of the good in your life.5.Instead，it’s a healthy way to work through the experience to allow room余地 for positive growth and forgiveness(宽恕).

What's more exciting than having a fresh hot pizza delivered to your door? How about having it brought to you by a robot? Thanks to Domino's Robotic Unit or DRU, that just became a reality! On March 8, the three-foot tall robot delivered its first pizza to some lucky residents in Brisbane, Australia.
The fully autonomous DRU is the result of a cooperation between Domino’s Pizza Australia and Marathon Robotics.The 450-pound machine that travels at a maximum speed of 12.4 miles an hour can traverse a distance of up to 12 miles and back, before requiring a battery recharge. LIDAR, a laser-based sensor technology similar to the one used in self-driving cars, enables DRU to detect and avoid obstacles, while traditional sensors, much like those used in vacuum robots ensure its path is safe as it heads to its destination.
The robot can fit up to ten pizzas and even has a separate cold area to accommodate drink orders.To access their fond, customers have to enter the unique code provided by the company.This is not only ensures that they pick up the right pizza, but also prevents the pies from getting stolen.
Scientists expert additional DRU’s to be ready for service in their various Queensland locations within the next six months.But don’t expect these super cute robots to replace humans anytime soon.According to Domino’s the DRU still needs extensive testing, which the company believes could take up to two years.
And then there is also the issue of regulations.The public use of autonomous vehicles is still banned in most countries.But Don Meij, the CEO and Managing Director of Domino's Pizza Australia New Zealand Ltd, is not worried.He is “confident that one day DRU will become an integral part of the Domino's family.”
1.What's the function of LIDAR?
A. keeping DRU free of obstacles
B. Recharging DRU’s battery
C. Helping DRU find its destination

C. Sell D. Show.
3.Why does the company provide codes for its customers?
A. To fit up more pizzas
B. To prevent the pizza being taken by mistake
C. To keep the pizza warm
D. To get the pizza paid in time
4.What can we infer about the future of DRU?
A. It may need some improvements B. It will replace humans soon.
C. It may be banned in Australia D. It will soon be applied worldwide
There are so many things we do in our daily lives that have become a “habit”, 1.How you answer the phone is a habit. The way you sit in the car when you drive is a habit. Have you ever tried to change the way you do something, after you’ve done it in a certain way for so long? It’s easy to do as long as you think about it. The minute your mind drifts to something else, you go right back to the old way of doing things. 2.It’s a way of doing things that has become routine or commonplace. To change an existing habit or form a new one can be a tedious(单调乏味的) task.
Let’s pick something fairly easy to start with, like spending 15 minutes in the morning reading the Bible. If you want to turn something into a habit that you do every day, you have to WANT to do it. 3.Make a firm decision to do this on a daily basis.
Imprint(铭刻) it in your mind. Write several notes to yourself and put them in places where you will see them. By the alarm clock, on the bathroom mirror, on the refrigerator door, in your briefcase, and under your car keys are good places to start.
After the newness wears off, then you will have to remind yourself, “Hey, I forgot to. . . ”. Keep using the notes if you have to. 4.Some people say it will take over a month to solidify(变得稳固) it and make it something you will do without having to think about it. I tend to agree with the last statement. Two to three weeks will help you to remember, but thirty days or more will make it a part of your everyday routine. 5.
A. What is a “habit” anyway?
B. Is doing things in an old way good?
C. Brushing your teeth is a habit.
D. Forming a bad habit is easy.
E. It takes 16 to 21 times of repeating a task to make it a habit.
F. If you don’t, you will find a way to do everything but that.
G. That’s something you won’t necessarily have to think about before you do it — habit.
