Mental magic
The young man sat in a comfortable chair with his eyes closed. A doctor had just put her in a trance. The doctor spoke softly.
-          Do you feel good? Without any worries?
The young woman nodded.
“ all right” said the doctor. “Now you are going to enter a theatre in Chicago. You’ll sit up towards the front. On the stage there’ll be a hand. After while a singer will come out and sing three songs you never heard before”
The doctor stared at his watch. He waited for a second hand to do around once: sixty seconds. Then he snapped his fingers in front of the young woman’s face. She opened her eyes and smiled.
“ how long were you in the theatre ?”
“about an hour”
“ do you remember the music? Any one of the singer’s new songs is fine with me”
“ neither of the first two was much good” the young woman said. “ I’ll do the third” she stood up and crossed the room to a piano. She fooled with the keys a moment, until she had tune. Then she sang the words and played the music of song no one on earth ever heard before. Was this magic? Yes and no. it did happen not long ago. The young woman was a song writer. The  doctor was a scientist studying the hidden powers of the mind. When the young woman came out of the trance, she really thought that the minute had lasted an hour

What happenings when you sleep?
Many people think that nothing happens when they sleep. Doctors have studied sleep for many years. They think that a lot happens when people sleep. Doctors say that people have five kinds of stages of sleep. People may have go through each stage about every 90 minutes. During first stage you sleep lightly. If someone calls you or puts his or her hand on you, you wake up quickly. Your body rests quietly. You breathe more slowly you are awake. During stages three or four, you sleep deeply. Or someone puts you his or her hand on you, you don’t wake up. Your hearts beats more slowly than in stage one or two. You don’t hear sounds. Lights don’t wake up you. The last stage of sleep is called REM ( rapid eye movement). During REM sleep you breathe faster, and your heart beats faster than one through four. Your eyes move under your eyelids. All of this happens because you are dreaming.

 102 and she’s a writer     
Dorothy Moriarty is Britain’s oldest writer. She is 102 years old and has just written her first book the memories of a nurse at university college hospital London in the early part of this century. At that time civilian hospitals had very little money. They were dirty and nurses worked seventy hours a week and earned 18$ a year. Dorothy says, there were cockroaches everywhere. Nobody worried about our hospitals. All the money went to the military hospitals and newspapers were full of stories of Florence nightingale and her soldiers. We decided to do something. We started the royal college of nursing and cut our working well from seventy to forty eight hours. This was much better.
