It is not surprising that people 21 ever associate Britain with wine and ill fact it may astonish you to learn that grapes are grown in the open air in England and nearly 200,000 22 were sold in 1975. There is nothing very new in growing grapes in Britain, 23 the climate. The Romans planted the first vines about AD 300 and 24 a long time people always drank home-produced wines. What destroyed the English wine industry was not 25 a change in the climate as the fact that an English King, Henry II, inherited the Bordeaux area of France as part of his dominions 26 the twelfth century and the imported wine provided 27 of competition. The English wine industry did not disappear, however, 28 the sixteenth century, when the monks, who had been the main producers in the meantime, had their estates taken away by Henry VIII. The new owners let the vineyards die out. But now English people, probably 29 their memories of holidays by the Mediterranean, drink more wine than ever and the new industry is now developing 30 a modest but consistent rate.

The Great Fire of London started in the very early hours of 2 September 1666. In four days it destroyed more than three-quarters of the old city, where most of the houses were wooden and close together. One hundred thousand people became homeless, but only a few lost their lives.
The fire started on Sunday morning in the house of the King's baker in Pudding Lane. The baker, with his wife and family, was able to get out through a window in the roof. A strong wind blew the fire from the bakery into a small hotel next door. Then it spread quickly into Thames Street. That was the beginning.
By eight o'clock three hundred houses were on fire. On Monday nearly a kilometer of the city was burning along the River Thames. Tuesday was the worst day. The fire destroyed many well-known buildings, old St Paul's and the Guildhall among them.
Samuel Pepys, the famous writer, wrote about the fire. People threw their things into the river. Many poor people stayed in their houses until the last moment. Birds fell out of the air because of the heat.
The fire stopped only when the King finally ordered people to destroy hundreds of buildings in the path of the fire. With nothing left to burn, the fire became weak and finally died out.
After the fire, Christopher Wren, the architect, wanted a city with wider streets and fine new houses of stone. In fact, the streets are still narrow; but he did build more than fifty churches, among them new St Paul's.
The fire caused great pain and loss, but after it London was a better place: a city for the future and not just of the past.

The flying fox is not a fox at all. It is an extra large bat that has got a fox's head, and that feeds on fruit instead of insects. Like all bats, flying foxes hang themselves by their toes when at rest, and travel in great crowds when out flying. A group will live in one spot for years. Sometimes several hundreds of them occupy a single tree. As they return to the tree toward sunrise, they quarrel among themselves and fight for the best places until long after daylight.
Flying foxes have babies once a year, giving birth to only one at a time. At first the mother has to carry the baby on her breast wherever she goes. Later she leaves it hanging up, and brings back food for it to eat. Sometimes a baby bat falls down to the ground and squeaks (尖叫)for help. Then the older ones swoop (俯冲) down and try to pick it up. If they fail to do so, it will die. Often hundreds of dead baby bats can be found lying on the ground at the foot of a tree.

(71) Customer Relationship Management (CRM) provides your company with new ways of better understanding and serving your customer. In July 1998, when Intel began taking orders over the Internet, it also premiered a new Web-based system to deliver confidential documents to its B2B direct customers. (72) This service, known as Information Desks, along with other new Web-based information delivery services, has enabled the company and its direct, indirect and channel customers to work together more efficiently. In the following article, Intel explains how it decided a CRM system could benefit the company. In Intel's case, there were several reasons for deploying CRM, including:
• With Web based information delivery, everyone can get important information at the same time no matter where they are located.
• (73) The first release of Intel's information delivery System slashed document delivery time from as much as two to three weeks to an average of three days. Now, it's a matter of minutes.
• Extend reach without adding staff. Intel has added services to upwards of 75,000 global resellers.
• (74) As a result of getting confidential documents faster, three-fourths of Intel's direct customer engineers shaved a week or more off their product development cycle.
When it came to designing the system, Intel used best-of-breed, off-the-shelf applications and modified them to meet the needs of their customers. Indirect customers received an Electronic Design Kit (EDK) to help develop their own products and solutions.
(75) And because CRM is a field in which new applications appear frequently, it was important to develop a flexible software architecture and an agile hardware infrastructure. Intel runs its CRM systems on dual and 4-way Intel-based servers, with back-end databases distributed over 8-way Intel-based servers. This gives the company a powerful, flexible and highly available infrastructure.
