   Bread is a kind of common food in our life. ________ But most people like to put butter. Bread and butter is a classic combination. "Bread and butter" also means something wonderful-a way to make money!

   Some word experts say the expression "bread and butter" began in Europe and England during the Middle Ages. ________ So,bread and butter was important food. And that is what the expression "bread and butter" meant for many years- a basic item for life. ________ People began using it to mean the way they earned a living. So,that is the origin. Here is how you can use it.

Let's say you really like to write and perform songs. But you do not make enough money by doing those things. So you get a job as a website designer. If someone asks what you do,you could say,"Well,I'm a musician. But designing websites is my bread -and-butter." ________ making music does not. We can say you depend on web design for your "bread and butter". If you really like your job and it pays well,you probably want to keep it. And if you work for someone else,you probably want to keep them happy. ________ "To know which side your bread is buttered on" means you are aware of the people who can help you. But this expression has a bad feel to it. It means being unusually aware of how others can help you.


A. Then around the 1600s,the meaning changed.

B. Some people like to spread chocolate on its top.

C. In other words,designing websites pays your bills.

D. In other words,you should know which side your bread is buttered on.

E. At that time,many farmers could only afford bread and butter as their meal.

A New Kind of Hero

   In the Olympics ,star athletes always get public's attention .In the past ,the athletes who got the gold medal in Olympics were popular .But now athletes who are not the winner ,such as Lin Dan and Fu Yuanhui ,also become popular.

   Fu Yuanhui,20 years old ,is a Chinese backstroke(仰泳)athlete .She became a popular star on social media(媒体)with her exaggerated(夸张的)expressions ,instead of her bronze medal(铜牌)in the women's 100- meter backstroke. After the semi-final,she was asked if she had saved some energy for the final. Fu answered with a shock face," I have been using my ' pre-historical' power (an online phrase in China which means the power of nature that can turn the world upside down)." This cute answer made her popular .Her happy personality (个性)won her millions of fans on the Internet overnight. People called her the “Pre-historical Girl” .She has become a new hero of Chinese people .She taught us a lesson:Sport is about the struggle (奋斗)and enjoyment ,and most definitely not about gold medals.

   Winning used to be everything for China's Olympians .Athletes who got gold have fame and fortune(财富),while those who disappointed often got ignored even criticized (批评).Liu Xiang became a national hero at the 2004 Athens Olympics .But four years later at the Beijing Olympics ,when an injury (受伤)forced him to give up running just before his first race ,he was criticized.

   Now,China is ready to welcome a sports star without a gold medal .Public attitudes toward competitive sports(竞技运动)and the Olympics have lifted to a higher level.

   “My boy,you can't think like that," his dad said. "There is a story that people tell in our hometown. Listen to it now."

   “There were two cats playing on the top of a house. One cat was and fell down the chimney(烟囱) while holding the other cat. When the two cats climbed out of the chimney,one at the cats had soot(烟灰) on his face,while other cat's face was clean cat,the clean cat thought its face must be dirty,so it quickly ran to the riverside and washed its face. The soot-faced cat saw the clean-faced cat and thought its face was also clean,so it just walked down the street happily”

   "Einstein,no one can be your 'mirror'. You have to think for yourself. If you follow others,you will never learn."
