London used to be “foggy”--- the “fog” was in fact smog, a mixture of smoke and fog. In other words, it was caused by air pollution. In London, some of this pollution came from factories, but a lot of it came from the coal that people burnt in their houses to keep warm during the winter. By the 1950s, London’s smog problem had become so bad that the government decided to do something to clean up the air. It didn’t allow people to born coal in any British city. A few years later, the air became much cleaner.
Today many Chinese cities face the same problem with air pollution that London faced sixty years ago. However, this problem is more difficult for Chinese cities to solve. One reason is that more of pollution comes from big factories, rather than from the coal burnt in people’s houses. If these factories were suddenly closed, it would harm the economy and lots of people would lose their jobs. Another reason is that changing from coal to cleaner fuels is quite expensive. However, the air in many cities will become cleaner, as the government and ordinary people pay more and more attention to protecting the environment.

I went to a volunteer orientation（志愿者活动情况介绍会） at Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital in California several days ago.
Before I went there, I thought it was just a meeting for us to learn some basic information on how to do volunteer work. To my surprise, this meeting lasted for four hours! It told us in detail how to be a good volunteer at hospital.
For example, Graham, the director, told us to keep eye contact while offering help and never wait to be asked but offer help first. She also told us to bend down（弯下腰） to listen while patients are talking to show that we’re willing to hear. We should lead them to ask others for help if we can’t answer their questions and never say: it is not my business.
For the whole meeting, Miss Graham taught us how to satisfy patients through our words, body language and manners. It impressed me a lot. Americans pay so much attention to serving people with a professional attitude（专业的态度）.
I suddenly realized why many people feel foreigners are really nice and friendly. They have been trained to do so since they were young. They always ask themselves: How do people feel toward my service? How can I improve to let them feel better? I really like this kind of culture.
