BOOK2 Unit3 (AP) President Obama says the nation's decades-old food safety system is a "hazard to public health" and in need of an overhaul, starting with the selection of a new head of the federal Food and Drug Administration. The president also said he was creating a Food Safety Working Group to coordinate food safety laws throughout government and advise him on how to update them. Many of these laws, essential to safeguarding the public from disease, haven't been touched since they were written in the time of President Theodore Roosevelt, he said.

BOOK2 Unit3 I. Related Information The American Way: Marriage all begins with engagement. Traditionally, a young man asks the father of his sweetheart for permission to marry her. If the father agrees, the man later proposes to her.
BOOK2 Unit3 Often he tries to surprise her by "popping the question" in a romantic way. Sometimes the couple just decides together that the time is right to get married. The man usually gives his fiancee a diamond ring as a symbol of their engagement. They may be engaged for weeks, months or even years.
BOOK2 Unit3 As the big day approaches, bridal showers and bachelor's parties provide many useful gifts. Today many couples also receive counseling during engagement. This prepares them for the challenges of married life.
BOOK2 Unit3 II. Discussion Are you in favor of marriage across nations? Why? What benefits and problems may a couple from different nations have in your opinion?
BOOK2 Unit3 Part I (Paras.1-4) Gail and Mark decided to marry after being together for two years to get to know each other better and learn to take a realistic view on a mixed marriage. Part II (Paras.5-9) Their planned marriage met with Gail’s mother’s resistance, who reminded her to be very certain that Mark was the right life-long partner, though she did not oppose their plan because of his color. III. Structure analysis
BOOK2 Unit3 III. Structure analysis Part III (Paras.10-21) Gail’s father’s reaction to their planned marriage.
BOOK2 Unit3 IV. Writing techniques of the passage In Section A, the writer uses one of the common ways to present one’s opinion. The structure can be described in the following way.
BOOK2 Unit3 Presentation of some ideas, opinions or arguments. Correct or reject the ideas, opinions or arguments. Presentation of some other, or different or even opposing ideas, opinions or arguments. Facts, or reasons, or examples to support the ideas, opinions or arguments presented. IV. Writing techniques of the passage
BOOK2 Unit3 The writer presented two different ideas: one about her early idea and the other about others’ idea. Then she goes on to reject both of them. The two ideas and the rejects are parallel to each other, both of which are not correct and are followed by corrections. This is what we called the parallel structure. IV. Writing techniques of the passage
BOOK2 Unit3 The mother’s original opinion: To start with I must admit that at first I harbored reservations about a mixed marriage, prejudices you might even call them. The mother corrects her original opinion: But when I met Mark I found him a charming and intelligent young guy. Any mother would be proud to have him for a son-in-law. So, color has nothing to do with it. IV. Writing techniques of the passage
BOOK2 Unit3 The mother presents others’ opinion: Yes, my friends talk. Some even express shock at what you’re doing. Then the mother rejects that opinion, too: But they live in a different world. So you see, Mark’s color is not the problem. IV. Writing techniques of the passage
