The California lawmakers voted Thursday to raise the legal age to buy tobacco products from 18 to 21。 The measure is part of a larger package of laws aimed at reducing tobacco use。 If Gover-nor Jerry Brown signs the bill, California will become the second state, after Hawaii, to raise the age limit for buying cigarettes and other tobacco products。 More than 100 cities in the U。 S。, inclu-ding New York and Boston, have already raised the age limit。
A week ago, the Caiifomia Assembly approved the measure, which--in addition to raising the age limit--treats electronic cigarettes the same as tobacco products, expands smoke-free areas, in-creases smoking bans and allows counties to collect higher taxes on cigarettes than the 87-cent per pack state tax. The Assembly' s vote came a few days after the city of San Francisco increased the age to buy tobacco products to 21.
California lawmakers passed the bill despite lobbying (游说)from tobacco interests. The meas-ure also faced opposition from many Republicans, who said the state should not be involved in po-licing people' s personal choices. "I don' t smoke. I don' t encourage my children to," said Re-publican Assemblyman Donald Wagner. "But they' re adults, and it' s our job to treat our citizens as adults. "
But supporters of the bill say raising the age to 21 moves legally purchased tobacco that much farther from younger kids. " This will save the medical system millions of dollars," said Democratic Assemblyman Jim Wood. ( 76 ) "It will save thousands of lives. " A 2015 study by the Institute of Medicine "found that if the minimum legal age to buy tobacco were raised to 21 nation-wide, tobacco use would drop by 12 percent by the time today' s teens reached adulthood. In addi-tion, there would be 223,000 fewer premature ( 过早的) deaths and 50,000 fewer deaths from lung cancer. "

Dr. James Barry was the first woman in England to go to medical school. When she was grow-ing up, women could not go to medical school. (77) So how did she become a doctor? She simply pretended that she was a man.
No one knows Dr. Barry' s real name, her birth date, of her family' s background. Some re-cords show that she was born in 1795 in London. Some people say she was the daughter of a rich man or a royal prince. One fact we know is that in 1810, James Barry became a medical student at the University of Edinburgh.

She saved the life of the governor' s daughter, and later she became the governor' s personal doctor. People admired Dr. Barry, but she also had a reputation as a troublemaker.

Chokwe Selassie is on a mission to help drivers avoid potholes( 路面坑洼). The eighth-grader was inspired to kick off his mission on a recent morning, when his mother was driving him to school. Their car was damaged as it went over a huge pothole in the middle of the street in their hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. "I decided I was going to do something about the pothole prob-lem in my city," Chokwe says. His solution: an app(手机应用) that warns drivers when there is a pothole ahead.
Chokwe developed the app with his friends Rodriguez Ratliff and Emmanuel Brooks。 "When the app detects a potheole, it is highlighted(突出显示) in red," Chokwe says。 "And if you get close to the pothole, your phone will warn you。 " Drivers can also use the app to report any pot-holes" they encounter, and to look for other routes they can take to avoid roads that have them。
The app relies on Current available information about the streets of Jackson. "It works by u-sing the city' s 311 call system, so it uses information already stored in a database," Chokwe says.
(79) Through the call system, citizens dial 3-1-1 to report non-emergency problems--whiCh in-clude potholes。 Chokwe and his friends determined that focusing on the 10 busiest streets in Jack-son would give them a large enough sample size to test the prototype(原型)。
(80) Although the app isn' t yet available for sale, Chokwe is already looking for ways to im-prove it。 The prototype remains limited'to 10 streets in Jackson, but he hopes to add more, so that it includes every street in the city。 And then he wants to go even farther。 "I want to keep working on the app until it' s nationwide," Chokwe says。
