An Adjustment to Price
Most American people hate repeating the same work endlessly, especially those who live in the West America. They try their best to make their life colorful and their work interesting. If they have to do the same regular work endlessly, they'll try to do it in different ways. Repetition and monotony are what they can't stand.
In the West of America there is a beautiful old mountain village which is well known for its straw hats. The villagers there can make many different styles of hats-hats for old gentlemen, for sweet and playful children and for beautiful young ladies. People often go there to buy hats.
One day there came a young tourist who entered a millinery shop and found a very nice hat costing five dollars. He said to the shop-keeper, "If you agree to sell at a cheaper price, I'd like to buy two hundred hats of this style." "No, you should pay me at least ten dollars each if you wish to get so many hats of the same style." The tourist could not understand.
"Well," said the shop-keeper.
"If you buy only one hat of this style, I can make it easily. If you order two hundred hats of different styles. I can also manage the business without much difficulty. However, it will bore me almost to death if you want me to make two hundred hats of the same style. So you should at least pay double price."

It is exciting to apply for a job that really interests you. In making your application, there are a number of points for you to observe.
In your letter of application, aim to say just enough to introduce yourself. If you are answering an advertisement, any information for which it asks must, of course, be given. This will usually cover your school record and any further education and training. You may also be asked to give the names of one or two persons to supply references. For this purpose you should choose people who know you well enough about your character and ability; and you should also ask for their permission to be named as referees.
It will depend on circumstances how much you can usefully add about yourself. Your purpose is to bring to the notice of the boss any good reason why you rather than any of the other applicants(申请人) should be chosen for the job. If therefore you feel you have any special skill for the work or, for example, any particular interest in the line of the business, let this be known.
Finally, there is your use of language. You cannot go wrong if you keep your sentences and paragraphs short, making sure the sense is clear and well expressed. Choose plain words so long as they can express your meaning.

Doctors have known for a long time that extremely loud noises can cause hearing damage or loss. The noise can be the sound of a jet airplane or machines in factories of loud music or other common sound at home and at work. A person only needs to hear the noise for little more than one second to be affected.
An American scientist has found that using aspirin (阿斯匹林) increase the temporary（暂时的）hearing loss or damage from loud noise. He did an experiment using a number of students at a university who all had normal hearing. He gave them different amounts of aspirin for different periods of time, then he tested their hearing ability.
He found that students who were given four grams of aspirin a day for two days suffered much greater temporary hearing loss than those who did not use aspirin. The hearing loss was about two times as great.
