What It's All About      On Thursday, April 2

What It's All About ?
     On Thursday, April 27, girls around the world will go to work instead of going to school. "Take Our
Daughters to Work Day" is a special event in which participants go with their parents to work instead of
going to school for one day. It will give them a chance to experience various careers first-hand by
accompanying their mom or dad to his or her job.
Who Is Invited ?
     Girls aged 9 through 15. Why girls ? Research reveals that young girls generally have less awareness of career options than boys. Visiting parents' work will help them to make informed career choices.
What Will They Do at SLAC ?
      At 8:30 am, the girls will be divided into two groups to participate in hands-on workshops and take a
tour of SLAC.
      From 11:30 to 12:30 a panel of women from various careers at SLAC will speak to the girls about
their jobs and how they've got where they are today.
      At 12:30 the girls will go outside to have their lunch. Please have your daughter bring a sack lunch;
only drinks and dessert will be provided.
      After lunch, parents will show their girls the parents' work area. There the girls will see the kind of
work their parents do, and in many cases they will have an opportunity to work alongside their parents.
      From 2:00 to 3:00 pm several departments will hold Open House. Employees are encouraged to visit
these Open Houses with their daughters.
      A more detailed schedule can be viewed by clicking here.
How to Register ?
      This year enrollment is limited to only 100 girls. A printable registration form is available in postscript. Fill the form out and send it to Janet Dixon ,MS 97, by April 14. Call EvelynEldyidge-Diaz,ext.4128, or

      Young athletes from around the world wi

      Young athletes from around the world will soon get their chance at Olympic gold. The International
Olympic Committee ( IOC ) voted Thursday to host the first-ever Youth Olympics.
     The Summer Games are planned to stage in August of 2010. The 12-day competition will feature
3,200 kids between the ages of 14 and 18. The Winter Games will be held in 2012 and are expected to
attract 1,000 athletes. Both games will take place every four years.
     Seeing the rise in childhood fatness, IOC president Jacques Rogge said he hopes the competitions will encourage young people to get off the couch and get into shape. Rogge also admitted that the IOC is
looking to pull in a younger television audience to the Olympics.
      In recent years, interest in the games among young people has fallen, with the average age of Olympic viewers on the rise. Rogge admitted that kids today are more interested in flashier( 浮华的 ) athletic
sports like the X Games, which stand for such sports as BMX freestyle, surfing, and Moto X Racing.
      The Olympics have tried to keep up with the competition by adding BMX-cross cycling, ski cross,
and snowboarding to the program. And the IOC is hoping to strengthen its fame among teens by adding
skateboarding in the 2012 London Olympics.
      The Youth Olympics are the IOC's latest attempt to draw the attention of young viewers. "Just as the
IOC has known, over our 100-plus years of living, how to move with the times---so we must now adapt
to meet the taste of today's young generation," he said.

1. According to the passage, the third Winter Youth Olympics will be held ______        

A.  in 2012    
B.  in 2016

D. in 2018

2. The aim of the Youth Olympics is to __________.

A. encourage young people to exercise more

A. When the Winter Youth Olympics will be held.
B. Where the Summer Youth Olympics will be held.
C. How long the Summer Youth Olympics will last.
