The stomach is the first stop in the process of food digestion. The inner walls of the stomach,
also called stomach lining, are bathed in about a gallon of stomach acid and digestive
Gastritis happens when the stomach lining is irritated, inflamed or inflected. Usually, a
person with gastritis will feel some cramps and pains in the middle or left upper belly, just
under the ribs. Other symptoms include nausea and vomiting, bloating and belching. A
wound in the stomach is called a gastric ulcer and it caused more pain than ordinary
gastritis. Blood may appear in vomit or stool. This loss of blood may cause anemia, which,
will make the person feel weak, tired and dizzy. When there is an inflection, there usually is
a fever.
It used to be thought that the causes of gastritis are spicy food, alcohol and lifestyle related
factors like stress, along with long term some painkillers and anti inflammation drugs like
aspirin and ibuprofen. But in the early eighties, a bacterium called Helicobacter pylori was
found to be responsible for most cases of gastritis and gastric ulcer. These bacteria are not
killed by stomach acid because they live within the gel like mucus membrane that protects
the stomach from its own acid. They have also developed a clever mechanism to neutralize
the acid that come in contact with, and release a by product of gases. These bacteria enter the
body via contaminated food and water, but still can be eliminated with the right antibiotics.

                                         Boarding School
There are many arguments in favor of a boarding school education. Nevertheless, the
boarding school is not always the best education institution for everyone.
At an early age interacting and communicating with people is very important for a child’s
personal life and can be especially helpful for his/her future. In a boarding school, shy
children can take advantage of interaction through communal activities. The boarding
school also offers a great variety of activities such as arts, sports, and music that allow
children to demonstrate and develop specialized skills in their free time.
Furthermore, the structured way of life and strict rules at the boarding school may helps
students to get used to a well ordered way of life. The manners and social skills will help
them to become more responsible and confident, and to develop their talents in leadership.
Professionally trained teachers and educators in the boarding school can offer excellent
education without the parents’ constant supervision.
In spite of these good points, it is not advisable to send a child to a boarding school if he/she
is a dependent learner. A boarding school usually demands that student learn
independently. In addition, the boarding school should not be seen as a measure to solve
inappropriate behavior or unsatisfactory study performance. Instead of improving,
problematic children may close off their relationship with their peers and teachers.
In conclusion although a boarding school may provide good education to many children, it
is not recommended for those who are strongly attached to their families. They may become
frustrated and socially isolated.

It happened on Sunday morning a few days ago. When I was about to have my routine cup
of coffee along with a bagel, I realized that I did not have any bread at all. I have to admit
that I am unable to enjoy coffee without some kind of baked goods.
Then I decided to run out to buy something, but all the stores were closed, but one. That
store did not have any fresh pastries, and I ended up buying four slices of wheat bread. I
was frustrated for two reasons: firstly, I couldn’t enjoy drinking my coffee on Sunday
morning; and secondly, the sales woman charged me $3.00 for four slices of bread!
Next, I returned to the building where I live on the tenth floor, stepped into the elevator,
pushed the button, and got out. When I reached my apartment and tried to unlock the door,
I could not turn the key. I made a few attempts without success. I started banging on the
door hoping to wake up my daughter. I was not successful at that either.
 I can’t explain how it crossed my mind to check the number of the apartment. The
 apartment number was correct, except for the first digit: the apartment was on the ninth
 floor, but the tenth. I was shocked to realize that I had been banging on somebody else’s

 or she would have said to me at 8:00 am on Sunday morning.
