There is a popular belief among parents that schools are no longer interested in spelling. No school I have taught in has ever ignored spelling or considered it unimportant as a basic skill. There are, however, vastly different ideas about how to teach it and how to encourage a child to write without holding him back with the complexities of spelling.
If spelling becomes the only focal point of his teacher's interest, clearly a bright child will be likely to "play safe". He will tend to write only words within his spelling range, choosing to avoid adventurous language. That's why teachers often encourage the early use of dictionaries and pay attention to content rather than technical ability.
I was once shocked to read on the bottom of a piece of writing about a personal experience: "This work is terrible! There are far too many spelling errors and your writing is not neat." It may have been a sharp criticism of the pupil's technical abilities in writing. But it was also a sad reflection on the teacher who had omitted to read the essay, which contained some beautiful expressions of the child's deep feelings. The teacher was not wrong to draw attention to the errors. But if his priorities had centred on the child's ideas, an expression of his disappointment with the writing would have given the pupil more motivation to seek improvement.\

Insomnia (失眠) is the inability to sleep calmly and relaxedly. It is a problem to nearly everyone at some time. A person may be awake for an hour in the middle of the night and then, next morning, may feel that he hardly slept all night. Normally, worry about not getting enough sleep is the worst aspect of most insomnia. If insomnia occurs repeatedly, it is important to find its possible causes and try to correct them.
Any of simple factors may make one feel difficult to fall asleep. His mattress (床垫) may be too soft or too hard. If there are too many blankets (毯子) on a hot night, he may be too warm; if the mattress is too light he may feel cold during the night. The bedroom itself may be overheated or too cold. If it is not dark enough, or too noisy, this may cause difficulty in sleeping. Eating shortly before going to bed may also be responsible for insomnia. Drinking tea or coffee can also make people awake.
The cause of insomnia may be easy to correct. The sufferer should check the mattress, and bedroom temperature, and make any necessary changes. He should relax for an hour or two before bedtime, perhaps by reading a book, watching television or taking a warm bath. If he wakes during the night he should try turning on the light and reading for a while. Taking warm milk and a biscuit or two may be helpful.

Office Angels Agency is advising businesses to plan as far ahead as possible to ensure guaranteed staff cover during holiday periods. There is now a serious shortage of skilled secretarial and administrative staff and this is expected to get worse over the next twelve months.
Businesses which require staff with experience of specialist computer applications are the most at risk. You are advised to contact our agency well before the staffs are actually needed to be certain of filling gaps with adequately trained personnel. If you don't, it's almost certain that you will be left without the skills needed to keep your office running smoothly.
The reason for the shortage of secretarial staff appears to be a combination of two factors. There has been an increase in the demand for secretarial services over the last few years, and at the same time there has been a lack of students deciding to choose secretarial studies.
Office Angels Agency would like to emphasize that businesses should not underestimate the difficulty of getting experienced temporary staff. It is also necessary to make the point that businesses should be prepared for the fact that they may have to pay more for this kind of service in the future.
