Though there are about 400 languages from all over the world that are in danger of disappearing completely, Zoque Ayapaneco, a native Mexican language is considered the most likely to become extinct, because the only two people in the world that speak it fluently do not talk to each other!
And, it's not because they live in different countries, states or even villages. In fact, Manuel Segovia and Isidro Velazquez, both in their 70s, live within 500 yards of each other, in the village of Ayapa in the Southern Mexican State of Tabasco. They, however, refuse to communicate because they simply don't have much in common. Segovia is apparently a little flank in nature while Velazquez is described as shy.
Segovia was at least able to talk in Zoque Ayapanece with his brother until he passed away about 12 years ago, and still manages to practice it with his family, especially his son Manuel, who for the last five years has been trying to learn it and hopes to become fluent enough to teach it to the next generation. Velazquez on the other hand, has not been heard speaking in the language with anybody.
The two men say the language used to be widely spoken in the village, but the younger generation shunned it for fear of being laughed at, and it therefore began to die a slow death, as the elders passed away.
Unless the two men get their acts together, the only way to hear the language will be to either listen to Manuel's not-so-fluent statement or see them talk in a documentary entitled “Lengua Muerta” (Dead Language) that is being filmed to capture Zoque Ayapaneco and 364 other native Mexican languages that are in a similar state.
We sure hope Segovia and Velazquez soon find something common to talk about. Maybe the fact is that the language is dying and that they should start encouraging and teaching the next generation together.
25. What do we know about Zoque Ayapaneco?

Plastic surgery(整容手术) is not only popular in the US, but is also sweeping across Asia. It is reported that South Korea is now the world’s largest market for plastic surgery.
In order to change their looks, 20 percent of women aged between 19 and 49 in Seoul said they had gone under the knife. The growth of South Korea’s pop music industry increases the popularity. Many patients visit clinics(诊所) with photos of singers, asking doctors to copy their noses or eyes.
ziyuanku.com Joo Kwon, who founded one of the largest clinics in Seoul, recently opened a hotel to better serve customers. People will spend about US $17,675 in a single visit. An increasing number of clients are non-Koreans, from China, Japan, the Middle East and even Africa. Leaders in South Korea say that this will help the Korean economy.
However, Mr.Kwon warned that young people should be careful when seeking such operations. “I think South Korea doesn’t understand the word “beauty”, because everyone looks pretty much the same. It is also related to low self-confidence. I think the situation will somewhat become better in future as the society becomes more different. But it will take quite a bit of time until we get there,” he told reporters.
Last yeas, a booklet(小册子) was given out to Korean high school students by the government. There is a story that a local woman who was crazy about plastic surgery ended up with an ugly face.

Some people collect postage stamps. Other people collect works of art or musical instruments. But a man in the American state of Maryland collects secrets.

He has brought thousands of secrets to Mr. Warren ’s home over the past three years. The project itself was once one of Mr. Warren’s secrets.

As a female, I hadn’t expected to work in the electrical industry when I planned my career. I didn’t want to be the 41 in almost every room, every meeting and every event. I certainly believed that my mother would 42 me to her friends as being “very important” because of my work. And I 43 thought that statement would inspire me to drive change in the electrical industry.
At first, everything didn’t go as 44 as I thought. I started off selling gas detection equipment and also climbed into manholes (检修孔). It was a 45 job because of the chicken farms and meat processing factories. But I really 46 it. I have a degree in European History, so entering the electrical industry was the 47 thing I was expecting. Last year I was 48 by Ohio Edison and I never regretted working here.
I have a real 49 for electrical field. What we do 50 to every household and every person. I also want to do everything I can to 51 other women to join in the electrical industry. I am passionate about making the industry more attractive to 52 . I always say that the industry won’t do 53 females’ ideas and thoughts. And we could 54 diverse ideas and thoughts from humans.
This year, the National Association of Electrical Distributors gave me a(n) 55 , which honored my commitment to 56 women in electrical industry. I was so humbled although I made a difference, and I was even more 57 that talented females were taking notice of our industry partly due to my 58 . Over the past decade, I have seen women take on more significant role in the 59 . We are slowly but surely taking our 60 in the boardrooms too. We are making changes all the time.
