My name is Sam. I joined a club called “passing help” last month. Now let me tell you why I joined it.

That day I sat on a shelf in a toy shop and looked out of the window as usual. Little children were passing in front of the toy shop. Sometimes they stopped by the window and looked at the toys and choose one or two for buying, but it didn’t make me happy because I knew that no one wished to buy me. I was a lonely poor teddy (泰迪熊) bear. They put me on a shelf in a corner of the toy shop and forgot about me. Then I became disappointed, sad, and alone because little children didn’t pay attention to me and pushed me away when they were looking for beautiful toys.
One day a girl and her father were by passing the shop. Suddenly, she stopped and looked at the toys. By her clothes, I could tell they were not rich. She was about eight years old, thin, and sweet. They entered the shop. She searched the shelves and suddenly her eyes stopped at me. She reached out to take me and looked at me carefully. She said “daddy, I found a beautiful cheap teddy”. So they paid half price and cleaned me up. I have never been happier because I have an angel (天使) to care for me.

Can you think of having computer screens or mobile phones that change shapes to tell you when you have a new message? 1
Mobile phones are our friends and we always feel that we can’t live without them. Scientist at the Human Media Lab in Canada invented (发明) a special mobile phone called MorePhone. It is as thin as a piece of paper.
2 You can even jump on it.
It uses very little power (能量) 3 . It is very light. You can take it around easily. You can take it when you have a holiday or when you need to work in the outside for a long time. And you don’t need to worry about the batteries.
Scientists spent about 13 years developing this new phone. Now they need to encourage people to use it. “ 4 because people always don’t believe it at first. And you need to show them how good your produce is” said one scientist.
It is really a fantastic invention. 5
