① For a long time, there has been a lot of pressure on women to be thin. ② We all have seen some typical images, in which models have been photoshopped to appear extremely skinny. ③ One research shows that women compare themselves with those images. ④ This comparison can lead them to develop a poor self-image. ⑤ In turn, this can increase their risk of developing an eating disorder. ⑥ Modified images can have a huge negative impact on women and even children. ⑦ For this reason, some governments have legislated laws on modified images. ⑧ For example, laws are being passed, like the "Photoshop Law" which requires models to have a minimum BMI and advertisers to label retouched images. ⑨ When a model's image is modified to make her smaller, that fact must be stated. ⑩ Governments and industries must work together to help protect women's self-confidence and health. ⑪ The fashion media and advertising industries need to show healthy images of women. ⑫ It will take a long time for this change to occur, but the effort is surely worth it.

① It is said that about 80% of Korean teens have work experience. ② But unfortunately, many teens are treated unfairly at their workplace. ③ In addition, they are far more likely than adults to be injured at work, even though they work fewer hours and are prohibited by law from working in high-risk jobs. ④ What's worse is that too many teens don't even know about their rights in the workplace. ⑤ Here's what teens have to remember before getting a part-time job. ⑥ In Korea, teens who are 15 years old or over are allowed to work. ⑦ If you are younger, you have to get a permit from the Ministry of Labor. ⑧ If you're paid less than the minimum wage, ask the employer to pay you more. ⑨ Also, teens' working hours are seven hours a day. ⑩ However, if you wish to work more, it is possible to work one more hour per day. ⑪ When you do, you should be paid for any overtime work. ⑫ And be sure to sign a contract before starting a new job. ⑬ If anything unfair happens at your workplace, just call the Ministry of Labor and get some help.

① More and more people are using social networks in their daily life. ② Using social networks is how you can easily find out personal things about other people. ③ You can not only read about them, but also see their pictures. ④ However, there's also a downside to this activity. ⑤ According to some research, people who spend too much time on social networks often get depressed. ⑥ So what is the reason why they feel depressed? ⑦ It means that they feel less satisfied with their own life. ⑧ When people were asked about this, most of them said they felt "envy" at others' posts. ⑨ They kept comparing their lives with others, and believed that other people were living happier lives. ⑩ Now let's find out how you can prevent those negative feelings. ⑪ First, don't draw conclusions about other people from the web. ⑫ Be sure to step away from your computer and get the full story about the other person. ⑬ You can also try to meet the people in real life. ⑭ When you are actually with others, you'll recognize that all of them live a normal life just like yours.

① There was a time when most societies were dominated by men. ② Men still hold most of the power in family and public life. ③ For example, it was only a short time ago when women could not vote in most Western countries. ④ Also, in many developing countries, women are still not equal to men. ⑤ However, the Minangkabau tribes, who live in the highlands of West Sumatra in Indonesia, have another way of running things. ⑥ This is a society where women have traditionally held a lot of power. ⑦ Most importantly, the oldest woman in the family is usually the head of the household. ⑧ She controls the family's money and possessions. ⑨ After she dies, her money and land are passed on to her daughter. ⑩ But the Minangkabau society is not exactly the opposite of a traditional society. ⑪ That's because women do not completely control society. ⑫ Minangkabau men can't own land, but still have important roles to play. ⑬ They usually take care of most of the religious and political affairs.

① How did we get the modern alphabet? ② It took thousands of years, and as much effort as any other invention. ③ The first people to write things down carved symbols onto rocks or shells. ④ These symbols usually represented people or things. ⑤ For instance, a drawing of a person might mean a person. ⑥ People who lived a long time ago led simple lives. ⑦ They used very easy symbols because they used them only to express their simple needs. ⑧ One of the most basic needs was food. ⑨ To tell each other about how to hunt animals or where to find food, people drew on cave walls. ⑩ Soon, people could grow their own food. ⑪ So, they needed to use more symbols for more than just people, places, and things. ⑫ Making symbols for everything got harder and harder as time passed. ⑬ So, many people started to feel the need to invent a set of letters, an alphabet. ⑭ Egyptians tried to make one and did it. ⑮ And it became common in Egypt. ⑯ There are many historical sites in Egypt. ⑰ Other countries that traded with or fought against Egypt knew this alphabet, and it was spread.
