No country in the world has more daily newspapers than the USA. There are almost 2，000 of them， as compared with 180 in Japan， 164 in Argentina and 111 in Britain. The quality of some American papers is extremely high and their views are quoted （引用） all over the world. Distinguished dailies like the Washington post or the New York Times have a powerful influence all over the country. However the Post and the Times are not national newspapers in the sense that The Times is in Britain or Le Monde is in France， since each American city has its own daily newspaper. The best of the these present detailed accounts of national and international news， but many tend to limit themselves to state or city news.
Like the press in most other countries， American newspapers range from the “sensational”， which feature crime， sex and gossip， to the serious， which focus on factual news and the analysis of world events. But with few exceptions American newspapers try to entertain and give as much information as possi
ble， for they have to compete with the attraction of television.
Just as American newspapers satisfy all tastes， so do they also try and appeal to readers of all political persuasions. A few newspapers support extremist groups on the far right and on the far left， but most daily newspapers attempt to attract middle-of-the-road Americans who are essentially moderate. Many of these papers print columns by well-known journalists of differing political and social views， in order to present a balanced picture.
As in other countries American newspapers can be either responsible or irresponsible， but it is generally accepted that the American press serves its country well and that it has more than once courageously exposed political scandals or crimes， for instance， the Watergate Affair. The newspapers drew the attention of the public to the horrors of the Vietnam War.

The heart is really just a very strong pump. It has four valves made of very thin， strong tissues. If the damage to the h 1 is not too bad， we put in pieces of natural heart-valve， which are taken from other people w 2 have just died. If a damaged artery is not too big， we replace it with a piece of vein. We take the v 3 from another part of the patient's own body. The human body has more veins than it really needs.
But how can we operate on the heart？ how does the blood continue to flow round the b 4 ？ Here the engineers really have helped us. We use the heart-lung machine. It does the work of both the heart and the l 5 . It pumps the patient's blood out of a large vein near the heart and passes the blood through a 'bath' of oxygen. The b 6 is filled with oxygen， and other gases are taken away from it， as in our lunges. The m 7 keeps the blood warm all the time. Then it pumps the blood back into a large artery. It does all this in a very gentle way， the blood c 8 are not damaged. So we can work on a heart which is empty of blood.
“If you aren't breathing， and if our heart isn't beating， you are d 9 ，” people used to say. But that is not true now. Although the heart is not pumping， and the patient is not breathing， his blood is still going around his body w 10） the help of the machine. He is very much alive. The heart-lung machine saves thousands of lives every year. It's really a wonderful invention！
