A When 25____ (ask) about happiness, we usually think of something extraordinary, an absolute delight, which seems to get rarer the older we get. For kids, happiness has a magical quality. Their delight at winning a race or getting a new bike 26____ (be) unreserved (毫不掩饰的). In the teenage years, the concept of happiness changes. Suddenly it's conditional on such things as excitement, love and popularity. I 27____ still recall the excitement of being invited to dance with the most attractive boy at the school party. In adulthood the things that bring deep joy--- love, marriage, birth---also bring responsibility and the risk of loss. For adults, happiness is complicated. My definition of happiness is "the capacity for enjoyment." The 28____ (much) we can enjoy what we have, the happier we are. It's easy to overlook the pleasure we get from the company of friends, the freedom to live where we please, and even good health. I experienced my little moments of pleasure yesterday. First I was overjoyed when I shut the last lunch-box and had the house to myself. Then I spent an uninterrupted morning writing, 29____ I love. When the kids and my husband came home, I enjoyed their noise after the quiet of the day. Psychologists tell us 30____ to be happy we need a mix of enjoyable leisure time and satisfying work. I don't think that my grandmother, who raised 14 children, had much of either. She did have a network of close friends and family, and maybe this is what satisfied her. We, however, with so many choices and such pressure to succeed in every area, have turned happiness into one more thing we‘ve got to have. We‘re so self-conscious about our ―right‖ to it that it‘s making us miserable. So we chase it and equal it with wealth and success, 31____ noticing that the people who have those things aren‘t necessarily happier. Happiness isn‘t about what happens to us ----it‘s about 32 ____ we see what happens to us. It‘s the skillful way of finding a positive for every negative. It‘s not wishing for what we don‘t have, but enjoying what we do possess. B A simple garden shows how a food chain works. Suppose you have lettuce growing in your garden. It is from sunlight 33____ the lettuce gets energy. It also draws water and nutrient from the soil. It now has everything it needs to grow. Think of this lettuce 34____ the first link in a garden food chain. Suppose one night a slug (鼻涕虫) moves onto the leaf of the lettuce and begins eating it. Now the energy from the lettuce 35____ (transfer) to the slug. The slug becomes the second link in the food chain. In the morning, a beetle (甲虫) comes along and eats the slug. The energy from the slug is now passed on to the beetle which becomes the third link in the chain. Just then, along 36____ (come) a hungry rat that eats the beetle. Now the rat is enjoying all the energy in the chain. But the food chain is not over. A wise old owl flies down, picks up the rat, and returns to its nest 37____ (prepare) it for dinner The owl has no natural predators, 38____ means that there is no animal that tries to kill the owl for food. The owl is at the top of this food chain and benefits from all the energy passed

through all the members of the chain --- the lettuce, the slug, the beetle, and the rat. There are many different food chains in nature. Each environment has its own food chain. We, too, are part of' 39____ food chain. Lucky for us, like the wise old owl, we are also at the top of our chain.

At age 75 , Snow White, the first Disney princess, is still the fairest of them all. To celebrate the 40____ of Disney's first feature film, the Walt Disney Family Museum is holding a special exhibition until April 2013 41___‖Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: The Creation of a Classic. " Visitors to the museum can explore the film's history and accomplishments. The character studies, drawings and watercolors on display show that Snow White is much more than a(n) 42____ fairy tale - it is a successful labor of love that continues to influence its medium today. Though you may think of Snow White as light children's fare, this movie made an impressive mark in film with new and original approaches, including tools and features that have become industry 43____. After all, it wasn't only Disney's first feature-length film --- it was the first full-length animated feature released in English and the first released in Technicolor as well. Hollywood now 44____ produces animated movies because such family-friendly films are impressive box office draws. Snow White was the first of its kind --- a cartoon film made from page to screen – and 45____the way for this process. When making Snow White, Disney was the first company to storyboard a film, sketching scenes to be placed on large boards in order. Storyboards allow a plan for visuals and story to be established before anything is even 46____. This technique, 47____ for its time, is used in nearly every film project today. Snow White benefited so much from this planning strategy that well-known directors like Fedrico Fellini and Orson Welles claimed that it 48____ their visual style. Compare Snow White's first shot of the queen's castle to the castle home in the opening shot of Welles' Citizen Kane, often called the greatest film ever made, and the impact of this method becomes 49____ clear.

IV. Cloze


We modern-day wives and mothers are breathtakingly busy.

They allow us to 53____ those tiny windows of opportunity ---- the ―downtime‖ we 54____ while we‘re driving around our kids, 55____, or waiting for a plane or a doctor. In my experience, however, real relationships are never built and 56____ kept on these exchanges. That‘s because when the person you‘re chatting with isn‘t able to give you her full 57____, it‘s hard, if not impossible, to feel heard, 58____ understood. It fails to comfort 59____

it‘s not cultivating --- kind of the way popcorn fails to satisfy, even if you eat a bucketful, because it‘s not nutritious. Worse, it‘s hard not to actively hate someone who 60____ your full attention when she‘s offering only half of hers. I have a neighbor who has a headset mobile phone. The minute she‘s in her car or otherwise multitasking, she puts in a call to me--- 61____ my family‘s dinner, calling me from the garden, waking us on Saturday morning on her way to soccer practice. And for what? The tiniest of questions, the most passing of thoughts, the slightest of impulses. She has, 62____, ―only a minute‖.

B 2*4 There are people in Italy who can‘t stand soccer. Not all Canadians love hockey. A similar situation exists in America, where there are those individuals you may be one of them who yawn or even frown when somebody mentions baseball. ?Baseball to them means boring hours watching grown men in funny tight outfits standing around in a field staring away while very little of

anything happens.‘ They tell you it‘s a game better suited to the 19th century, slow, quiet, and gentlemanly. These are the same people you may be one of them who love football because there‘s the sport that glorifies ―the hit‖. By contrast, baseball seems abstract, cool, silent, still. On TV the game is fractured into a dozen perspectives, replays, close-ups. The geometry of the game, however, is essential to understanding it. You will contemplate the game from one point as a painter does his subject; you may, of course, project(投入) yourself into the game. It is in this projection that the game affords so much space and time for involvement. The TV won‘t do it for you. Take, for example, the third baseman. You sit behind the third base dugout and you watch him watching home plate. His legs are apart, knees flexed. His arms hang loose. He does a lot of this. The skeptic still cannot think of any other sports so still, so passive. ?But watch what happens every time the pitcher throws: the third baseman goes up on his toes, flexes his arms or bring the glove to a point in front of him, takes a step right or left, backward or forward, perhaps he glances across the field to check his first baseman‘s position.‘ Suppose the pitch is a ball. ―Nothing happened,‖ you say. ―I could have had my eyes closed.‖ The skeptic and the innocent must play the game. And this involvement in the stands is no more intellectual than listening to music is. Watch the third baseman. Smooth the dirt in front of you with one foot; smooth the pocket in your glove; watch the eyes of the batter, the speed of the bat, the sound of horsehide on wood. If football is a symphony of movement and theatre, baseball is chamber music(室内音乐), a spacious interlocking of notes, chores and responses. 69. The passage is mainly concerned with ______. A. the function of the third baseman B. why some people dislike baseball C. the differences between football and baseball D. the real attraction of baseball game 70. Those who don‘t like baseball may complain that ______. A. it is only to the taste of the old B. it involves fewer players than football C. it is not exciting enough D. it is pretentious and looks funny 71. The author admits that ______. A. baseball is too peaceful for the young B. baseball may seem boring when watched on TV C. football is more attractive than baseball D. playing baseball is similar to playing music 72. We can safely conclude that the author‘s attitude towards baseball is ______. A. negative B. critical C. skeptical D. favorable Q & A: Read the passage carefully and answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN 15 words.


C 2*4 Among the more colorful characters of Leadville‘s golden age were H.A.W.Tabor and his second wife, Elizabeth McCourt, better known as ―Baby Doe‖. Their history is fast becoming one of the legends of the Old West. Horace Austin Warner Tabor was a school teacher in Vermont. With his first wife and two children he left Vermont by covered wagon in 1855 to homestead in Kansas. Perhaps he did not find farming to his liking, or perhaps he was lured by rumors of fortunes to be made in Colorado mines. At any rate, a few years later he moved west to the small Colorado mining camp known as California Gulch, which he later renamed Leadville when he became its leading citizen. ―Great deposits of lead(铅) are sure to be found here.‖ he said. As it turned out, it was silver, not lead, that was to make Leadville‘s fortune and wealth. Tabor knew little about mining himself, so he opened a general store, which sold everything from boots to salt, flour, and tobacco.?It was his custom to ―grubstake‖ prospective miners, in other words, to supply them with food and supplies, or ―grub‖, while they looked for ore, in return for which he would get a share in the mine if one was discovered.‘ He did this for a number of years, but no one that he aided ever found anything of value. Finally one day in the year 1878, so the story goes, two miners came in and asked for ―grub‖. Tabor had decided to quit supplying it because he had lost too much money that way. These were persistent, however, and Tabor was too busy to argue with them. ―Oh help yourself. One more time won‘t make any difference,‖ He said and went on selling shoes and hats to other customers. The two miners took $17 worth of supplies, in return for which they gave Tabor a one-third interest in their findings. They picked a barren place on the mountain side and began to dig. After nine days they struck a rich vein of silver. Tabor bought the shares of the other two men, and so the mine belonged to him alone. This mine, known as the ―Pittsburgh Mine,‖ made 1, 300, 000 for Tabor in return for his $17 investment. Later Tabor bought the Matchless Mine on another barren hillside just outside the town for $117, 000. This turned out to be even more fabulous than the Pittsburgh, yielding $35 000 worth of silver per day at one time. Leadville grew. Tabor became its first mayor, and later became lieutenant governor of the state. 73. The word “grubstake” in paragraph 2 means to ___________________________________. 74. Leadville got its name because Tabor believed ___________________________________. 75. Tabor became the sole owner of the ―Pittsburgh Mine‖ by ___________________________. 76. If this passage is the first part of an article, who might be introduced in the following part? ____________________________________________________________________________.
