Working at home in your nightclothes while saving hundreds of dollars may sound too goodto be true, but it isn't. More and more employees are telecommuting, doing their job at home oranother remote site.
"It's a trend that's here now and you're going to see a lot more telecommuting because people don't have to put up with commuting (来回上下班). They want more work/life balance, theywant less stress in their lives and companies want to drive costs after their bottom lines," says JohnEdwards, President of the International Telework Association and Council.
However, Edwards says, "The biggest problem at the moment is dealing with middle managementwho is uncomfortable with management style focusing on results. They are used to the line ofsight management style. But they have to change to more results-oriented management style whichcan often be slightly opposite, so they feel uncomfortable with that."
Edwards says telecommuting kills distance—and a lot of face to face meetings are replacedby teleconferences. "Distance does not exist anymore. It's the death of distance, if you like. Sonow it's possible to have more invisible teams so that the necessity to have the old bricks andwalls existing is beginning to disappear.\

All of us communicate with one another verbally (口头的) as well as non-verbally. Most of thetime we are not aware that we're doing it. We wave a hand, meet someone else's eyes or lookaway, shift positions in a chair. We make these movements unconsciously. But researchers havediscovered that there is a system to them almost as consistent (一致的) and comprehensible aslanguage.
Every culture has its body language. The way an Englishman crosses his legs is nothing likethe way a male American does it. In talking, Americans are likely to end a statement with a lowering of the eyelids. They conclude a question with a lift of the hand or a widening of theeyes. With a future-tense verb they often gesture with a forward movement. There are regionalidioms too. Your sex, ethnic background, social class and personal style all influence your bodylanguage. Nevertheless, you move and gesture within a certain idiom.
Usually, the wordless communication acts to qualify the words. What the non-verbal elements express very often, and very efficiently, is the emotional side of the message. When a personfeels liked or disliked, often it's a case of "not what he said but the way he said it."
Experts in the study of communication through body movement are not prepared to spell outa precise vocabulary of gestures. When an American rubs his nose, it may mean he is disagreeingwith someone or rejecting something. But there are other possible interpretations, too. The expertlooks for patterns in the context, not for an isolated meaningful gesture.
Which of the following is NOT a way of non-verbal communications according to the first paragraph?
A Waving a hand.
B Making eye contact.
C Changing positions in a chair.
D Crying in a low voic

All of the following statements are true of Americans EXCEPT______.
A start a question with widened eyes
B have their forward movements in future-tense verbs
C cross their legs in a different way that Englishmen do
D tend to lower their eyelids to conclude a statement
In paragraph 3, which of the following does NOT influence one's body language?
B Educational background.
C Social status.
D Personal styl
A always expresses the message precisely
B usually doesn't match the language
C sometimes isolates a meaning
D often shows the speaker's true emotions
A company needs staff not only who have the right qualifications and experience, but alsowho are happy to fit in with the company's way of doing things. Our managers have to acceptthe idea that everyone working here is a colleague and that spending time actually in the storewith colleagues and customers, rather than in their office, is part of the job. For managementpost, we organize pre-interview group exercises to measure team-working and leadership ski]ls,sometimes along with activities to assess personal qualities.
In all our interviews we pay attention to body language. And like all employers, we want totake on staff who are at ease with colleagues and customers so it is important to watch the waycandidates behave, as well as listen to what they have to say.
Staff needed: both have the right (1) and fit in with (2) of doing things.
Expectation from the managers: the employees spend time in the store with (3) .
Pre-interview group exercises: designed to measure team-working and (4) of candidates.
The interviewers will pay attention to (5) in all their interviews.

It may not be much to look at. But beneath that humble exterior beats an air-cooled engine.It won't boil over and ruin your piston rings. It won't freeze over and ruin your life. It's in theback of the car for better traction on snow and sand. And it will give you about 29 miles to a gallon of gas.
After a while you get to like so much about the VW, you even get to like what it looks like.You find that there's enough legroom for almost anybody's legs. Enough headroom for almostanybody's head. With a hat on it. Snug-fitting bucket seats. Doors that close so well you canhardly close them. They're so airtight, it's better to open the window a crack first!
Those plain wheels are each suspended independently. So when a bump makes one wheelbounce, the bounce doesn't make the other wheel bump. It's things like you pay the $1585 for,when you buy a VW. The ugliness doesn't add a thing to the cost of the car.
That's the beauty of it.
