During his talk, Jack 36 his wallet, pulled out a hundred-dollar bill, and said, ‘‘Who wants this?” 37 shot up in the audience; people leaned forward to see whom Jack would 38 .But I jumped up, ran up the 39

to the stage, and grabbed the bill.As I was launching myself in the air, thoughts 40 through my mind — was I about to be humiliated(羞辱) in front of 800 people? Would they 41 security guards and take me from the stage? 42 my desire for bold action was louder than any 43 voice. As I got the bill from his hand, he said, “That’s it! We can’t wait for the 44 to come to us.We must take action to 45 what we want!’’ After his talk, I managed to formally meet Jack and boldly asked for his 46 e-mail address.Over the next months, I sent him emails 47 my vision and dreams with him . He kindly e-mailed back lots of encouragement.But my life got 48 with other things.I stopped e-mailing Jack. A year later, my dreams had worn away.I thought Jack would inspire me into action, like a giant 49 that would show me the way. I e-mailed him, and then again — but got no 50 .As I sat down at my computer to check my e-mails, I 51 woke up.What was I doing? I was waiting! Now I remembered the crowd, most likely 52 that hundred-dollar bill, while they sat 53 to their chairs. Usually we all have a “Jack” for whom we wait — whether it’s a person, a place or a thing. We 54 believe the gifts of life are just around the corner, and that everything will come in a(n) 55 way.So we don’t try.We give up.But as Wayne Gretzky said: “You’ll always miss 100% of the opportunities you don’t take!” So I stopped waiting and started my writing career.

Kerstin Otto from Washington: The hotter it gets and the more layers of clothing disappear, the more tattoos and piercings appear on various places of the human body, I wouldn’t be caught dead with a snake tattooed on my ankle or with a piece of metal stuck in my belly button.

Erin from Indiana: I think body piercing is cool.In most situations, you don’t really have to worry about it getting torn out.I go to Noblesville High School. am a sophomore I (that is the l0th grade) Body piercing can be cool, only if it is not taken . to too much of an extent.I would not want to get my nose pierced, just because I think I’ll look bad.But that is my personal opinion.I guess that type of thing is a cultural difference. Tiara from Indiana: I personally think body piercing is sickening.If there were supposed to be holes in your body, you would have been born with them.I do, however, think that ear piercing, is not wrong.There is a difference between ear piercing and belly button piercing.Ear piercing is not nearly as dangerous.I would be sick if someone stuck a needle in my belly button. Lee from Illinois: Hi! I live in Illinois. am 23. have 12 tattoos and three piercings. love my tattoos and consider myself an art I I I collector.You would be surprised at who has given me the thumbs-up on my art work.People on the street stop me to look at that on my leg.Most of them don’t know what it is.They just think the work itself is great. Subotai from California: I’m not prohibitive of self-expression, but when I see high school students getting these piercings, I really wonder.In some cases, the drive is deeper and darker than mere fashion.A friend of mine tried piercing her own tongue with a safety pin.It got infected and she had a tongue the size of a cow’s. Nagib from Washington: I wanted an earring.My friends had them and it looked like a cool thing.I wanted to get a nose ring, but my mum wouldn’t let me.Now I’m glad I didn’t get it.I just wanted a little stud, but I wouldn’t have looked good with it. Jackson from Ohio: I don’t think it’s wrong, but when people do it all over the place like their face and everything —I think that’s ridiculous.People who get the big dragons that cover your whole body—I don’t think that’s necessary.When I see naked chicks on guys, I think.“You have no respect for women.” Brittney from New York: You don’t want to do stuff to your body.You don t need to do that because you were made perfect.You don’t need to add piercings.If it will make you feel beautiful and you really feel like you need to do it for yourself, then okay.If it really makes a big difference impacting your self-esteem and how you are towards others, then do it.But otherwise, don’t mess with what you got.

First-time violators(违法者)will face a $100 fine.A second time call for a $200 fine and every violation after that will cost $500. At least a dozen localities(地方)have established bans, starting in 1999;and 40 states have had bans proposed

but not passed.At least 23 countries, including the Great Britain, Italy, Israel and Japan, ban drivers from using hand-held cell phones. There are about 115 million cell phones in use in the United States and more than 6 million in New York State. “To think that I’m not going to use cell phone when at the same time I can still use my laptop(膝上电脑), I still can read a paper, I can still change my trousers while driving 65 miles per hour. think there’s just something wrong.” I an official said. Other critics(批评)noted that other things like eating, drinking coffee and applying to make up while driving caused at least as much of a concern.They suggested that the ban include a broader range of things. 59.How much fine will a hand-held cell phone user receive if he has been caught using it four times while driving after November.__________ A.$500.

A.it is not fair to have this ban passed B.the ban will never be passed in the whole country C.more activities or the same kind should also be banned D.the ban will meet with more criticism C We all know that everyone becomes a little more forgetful as they get older, but men’s minds decline more than women’s, according to the results of a worldwide survey. General differences seem to be natural in male and female brains: Men are better at maintaining and dealing with mental images (useful in mathematical reasoning and spatial skills), while women tend to excel (擅长于) at recalling information from their brain’s files. Many studies have looked for a connection between sex and the amount of mental decline people experience as they age, but the results have been mixed. Some studies found more age-related decline in men than in women, while others saw the opposite or even no relationship at all between sex and mental decline. Those results could be improper because the studies involved older people, and women live longer than men: The men tested are the survivors, “so they’re the ones that may not have shown such cognitive(认知的) decline,” said study team leader Elizabeth of the University of Warwick in England. Scientists surveyed completed four tasks that tested sex-related cognitive skills: matching an object to its rotated form, matching lines shown from the same angle, typing as many words in a particular category as possible in the given time, e.g.“object usually colored gray”, and recalling the location of objects in a line drawing.The first two were tasks at which men are usually good; the latter are typically dominated by women.Within each age group studied, men and women performed better in their separate categories on average.And though performance declined with age for both genders, women showed obviously less decline than men overall. 63.According to the passage, which of the following can NOT be typed into the same category? A.cloud B.sheep C.trees D.goose 64.Which of the following statements is true according the article? _______ A.Men do better than women when it comes to learning English.

B.Women stand out at remembering people’s names. C.Women do well in dealing mathematic problems. D.Men excel at typing as many words as possible in the given time. 65.One important factor that affects the correctness of the results is that ________. A.women live longer than men B.people surveyed are all old C.the old men tested may not have shown such cognitive decline D.people taking part in this test came from all over the world 66.The author aims to tell us that _________. A.women’s minds perform better than men’s B.men’s minds decline more with age C.everyone becomes a little more forgetful as they get older D.a survey on human’s mind decline was done recently D Most young people enjoy some form of physical activity. may be walking, cycling, or swimming, or in winter, It skating or skiing.It may be a game of some form--football, basketball, hockey, golf or tennis.It may be mountaineering. Those who have a passion for climbing high and difficult mountains are often looked upon with astonishment. Why are men and women willing to suffer cold and hardship, and to take risks in high mountains? This astonishment is caused, probably, by the difference between mountaineering and other forms of activity to which men give their leisure. Mountaineering is a sport and not a game.There are no man-made rules, as others, as there are for such games as golf and football.There are, of course, rules of different kind which it would be dangerous to ignore, but it is this freedom from man-made rules that makes mountaineering attractive to many people.Those who climb mountains are free to use their own methods. If we compare mountaineering and other more familiar sports, we might think that one big difference is that mountaineering is not a “team game”.We should be mistaken in this.There are, it is true, no “matches” between “teams” of climbers, but when climbers are on a rock face linked by a rope on which their lives may depend, there is obviously teamwork. The mountain climber knows that he may have to fight forces that are stronger and more powerful than man. He has to fight the forces of nature.His sport requires high mental and physical qualities. A mountain climber continues to improve in skill year after year.A skier is probably past his best by the age of thirty.But it is not unusual for men of fifty or sixty to climb the highest mountains in the Alps.They may take more time than younger men, but they perhaps climb with more skill and less waste of effort, and they certainly experience equal enjoyment. 67.What movements are popular among people in winter in the passage? ________ A.Skiing and skating. B.Soccer and golf. C.Cycling and hockey.D.Mountaineering. 68.Mountaineering is a sport, not a game because ________. A.it has man-made rules B.it is too dangerous for climbers C.it can’t bring people joy and leisure D.it is free for climbers to use their own methods 69.A mountain climber must be strong both mentally and physically because _______. A.there are no regular man-made rules for him to follow B.there is no teamwork and he has to depend on himself C.his component is not one or several people but the powerful nature D.mountaineering requires the skills practiced year after year 70.We know from the passage that _______. A.mountaineering has no appeal to people B.physical quality is more important than mental one for climbers C.it is possible for an old man of fifty or sixty to climb the Alps

D.a mountain climber would pass his best by the age of thirty 任务型阅读(共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分) To cultivate one’s taste in English prose(散文), the most effective way is to read English books extensively. Yet one may be at a loss to choose the appropriate books, especially as a beginner.I would like to share some of my experience. My first English novel was Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, recommended by many English teachers and professors as an ideal book for English learners.But my experience was somewhat disastrous.Stumbling along the lines, I had great difficulty in understanding the novel, let alone enjoying it.It’s not the vocabulary that troubled me, but rather the way Austen constructs sentences, and her way of thinking, which seemed too remote to me at that time.My fading enthusiasm was much recovered after reading Hemingway’s novel Farewell to Arms.No long and complicated sentences.And I particularly liked his concise and straightforward style.So my first suggestion is, as a beginner, you’d better choose contemporary novels instead of classical ones.You can easily engage yourself in reading, get fun out of it, and gradually build up confidence.I do not mean to exclude classical novels for ever.Actually, the second reading of Pride and Prejudice greatly pleased me (probably the result of my improved English comprehension).It is only that classical novels are less accessible to beginners due to their language styles and social background.I’d like to recommend three contemporary novelists to You — Ursula Le Guin, Ernest Hemingway, and Doris-Lessing. However, reading novels is not the only way to improve your English.In fact, if you restrict yourself to novels, you will miss a lot of treasures.English essays can at once inform you, entertain you, and refine your taste in English. The best example is Bertrand Russell’s work. language is plain, yet you cannot help feeling the elegance Its and the peculiar sense of humor.His simple language enables his philosophy within the reach of ordinary people.The same is true of George Orwell’s work.Here comes my second suggestion — essays are necessary. My last advice is never follow others’ recommendations and opinions blindly, however, famous or influential the person might be.Some days ago, I listened to the audio-book of Somerset Maugham’s autobiography The Summing up.In a chapter he regards Edward Gibbon and Samuel Johnson’s style as pompous.Though I admire Maugham’s prose, I cannot agree with his view. Probably one can label Johnson’s work as pretentious, but definitely not Gibbon’s.In fact, his lucid style makes his works highly readable, and you can hardly believe they were written over 200 years ago. Therefore, we should be open to various ideas, but always think and determine for ourselves. As a saying goes, one man’s meat is another man’s poison.With that in mind, we are bound to find out our favorite writers through reading and develop our fine taste in English. How to Choose English Books (71) ▲ To cultivate one’s taste in English prose of reading * Readers cannot fully (72) ▲ the books, not to mention enjoying them. * It is the language styles rather than the (73) ▲ that really trouble the Classical readers. novels * The sentences are usually long and (74) ▲ . * The sentences are usually (75) ▲ to understand.

the end of a painful divorce, and money was tight. They were as miserable as any two people could be. But they decided to sit together for a few minutes each morning before Therese headed off to work and tell each other three things they were grateful for in their lives. “It was slow going at the beginning,” Therese told me. “The first time we did it, I had a hard time thinking of even one thing I was grateful for.” Finally, she looked around the room and saw a vase she liked. She told Charlie: “I’m grateful for how pretty that vase is.” It sounded silly, but it was the best she could do. And soon, she and Charlie noticed that even a thank-you for something small had a good effect. Soon, Therese and Charlie started to notice that more and more things were going their way. Even their money situation improved. Three thank-yous became five, then ten, and soon they had to stop listing the good things in their lives, otherwise Therese would have been late for work. One day, they were feeling so happy after finishing their lists that Charlie started singing the song “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning.” Therese joined in. Now “saying their thank-yous” and singing together has become one of the highlights of their day. Once, after going through a heartbreak, a friend told me to write down five things I was grateful for each night before I went to bed. At first I struggled to come up with anything, but I continued doing it every night and over time the pain in my heart eased. Try doing the gratitude exercise yourself. Every night before you go to sleep, list five things that you’re grateful for that day, and notice how you feel when you wake up the next morning. A grateful heart can send your happiness level soaring. 56. Therese and her father met with many problems EXCEPT that ____. A.Therese had been through a divorce B.Therese’s father had lost his wife C.they didn’t have enough money D.Therese’s father was seriously ill 57. What can we conclude from Paragraphs 3-4? A.Therese gradually found it was waste of her time to list the good things in her life. B.Therese found there were more and more things worthy of gratefulness. C.A thank-you for something small brought them good fortune. D.Therese and Charlie found more people who were willing to help them. 58. The author found that doing the gratitude exercise ____. A.helped her pull through difficult times B.made no difference to her life C.exhausted her for the effort she put into it D.cured her of her heart disease 59. With the story of Therese and her father, the author intends to tell us that ____. A.misfortunes never come one at a time B.happiness does not come easily C.having a grateful heart leads to happiness D.you have to believe that time will ease your pain B In the old days children were familiar with birth and death as part of life. This is perhaps the first generation of American youngsters who have never been close by during the birth of a baby and have never experienced the death of a family member. Nowadays when people grow old, we often send them to nursing homes. When they get sick, we transfer them to a hospital, where children are forbidden to visit terminally ill patients-even when those patients are their parents. This deprives(剥夺) patient of significant family members during the last few days of his life and it deprives the children of an experience of death, which is an important learning experience. Some of my colleagues and I once interviewed and followed approximately 500 terminally ill patients in order to find out what they could teach us and how we could be of more benefit, not just to them but to the members of their families as well. We were most impressed y the fact that even those patients who were not told of their serious illness were quite aware of its potential outcome. It is important for family members, and doctors and nurses to understand these patients’ communications in
21-35 CDDAC CBADA DBBAB 36-55 ADDAB CBDAC BDBBB CADCD 56-70 DBAC CAAC DAD BDBC

order to truly understand their needs, fears, and fantasies(幻想). Most of our patients welcomed another human being with whom they could talk openly, honestly, and frankly about their trouble. Many of them shared with us their tremendous need to be informed, to be kept up-to-date on their medical condition and to be told when the end was near. We found out that patients who had been dealt with openly and frankly were better able to cope with the approach of death and finally to reach a true stage of acceptance prior to death. 60.The elders of contemporary Americans _____________. A.were often absent when a family member was born or dying B.were quite unfamiliar with birth and death C. usually witnessed the birth or death of a family member D.had often experienced the fear of death as part of life 61.Children in America today are denied the chance ______________. A.to learn how to face death B.to visit dying patients C.to attend to patients D.to have access to a hospital 62.The need of a dying patient for company shows __________. A.his desire for communication with other people B.his fear of approaching death C.his pessimistic attitude towards his condition D.his reluctance to part with his family 63.It may be concluded from the passage that ______________. A.dying patients are afraid of being told of the approach of death B.most doctors and nurses understand what dying patients need C.dying patients should be truthfully informed of their condition D.most patients are unable to accept death until it is obviously inevitable C ALBERT Einstein had the idea. It stayed true for over a century. It is one of the cornerstones of physics. Nothing travels faster than light. However, Einstein’s special relativity theory has almost been proven wrong. In September, scientists discovered that a kind of neutrino (中微子) could travel faster than light. The result was greeted with some doubt when it was released because anyone who has ever doubted special relativity theory before has been proven wrong. The debate has been going on for the past two months. But so far, the result still holds. In the original experiment, physicists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) sent a beam of tiny subatomic particles called neutrinos from their lab near Geneva to a detector 730 kilometers away in Italy. The neutrinos got there 60 nanoseconds (纳秒,十亿分之一秒) sooner than the light. That tiny amount of time may completely change our understanding of the laws of nature because modern physics has been based on Einstein’s special relativity theory since he first came up with it in 1905. The theory states that time slows down for an object traveling at the speed of light, and that space shrinks. If proven to be true, the new finding may lead to a revolutionary change, not only in the basic principles of physics but also in our concept of space and time. Theoretically people would be able to travel back in time. Doubtful physicists questioned the carefulness of CERN’s time measuring and analysis. CERN therefore did the experiment again with more accurate measurements in October. The new result was released on November 17 and once again, the neutrinos beat a light beam sent to the Gran Sasso laboratory in Italy by 60 nanoseconds. Christos Touramanis, who heads a neutrino research team at Britain’s Liverpool University, agreed that the new test had ruled out some possible sources of errors, but said that “a number of other possible effects” still needed to be checked. “Ultimately, full independent confirmation will be required before accepting this result as accurate,” he told Reuters. 64. The scientists at CERN drew the conclusion that ______. A.Einstein’s special relativity theory was completely wrong B.our understanding of the laws of nature should be changed C.their experiments backed up the theories of modern physics

B.No one has ever doubted special relativity theory before. C.No matter can travel faster than the speed of light. D.Some scientists doubted that the speed of the neutrinos was accurate. D The Board Meeting had come to an end. Bob started to stand up and knocked into the table, spilling his coffee over his notes. “How embarrassing! I am getting so clumsy in my old age.” Everyone had a good laugh, and soon we were all telling stories of our most embarrassing moments. It came around to Frank who sat quietly listening to the others. Someone said, “Come on, Frank. Tell us your most embarrassing moment.” Frank laughed and began to tell us of his childhood. “I grew up in San Pedro. My Dad was a fisherman, and he loved the sea. He had his own boat, but it was hard making a living on the sea. He worked hard and would stay out until he caught enough to feed the family. Not just enough for our family, but also for his Mom and Dad and the other kids that were still at home.” He looked at us and said, “I wish you could have met my Dad. He was a big man, and he was strong from pulling the nets and fighting the seas for his catch. When you got close to him, he smelled like the ocean. He would wear his old canvas, foul-weather coat and his bibbed overalls. His rain hat would be pulled down over his brow. No matter how much my mother washed them, they would still smell of the sea and of fish.” Frank’s voice dropped a bit. “When the weather was bad he would drive me to school. He had this old truck that he used in his fishing business. That truck was older than he was. It would wheeze and rattle down the road. You could hear it coming for blocks. As he would drive toward the school, I would shrink (畏缩) down into the seat hoping to disappear. Half the time, he would slam to a stop and the old truck would belch (喷出) a cloud of smoke. He would pull right up in front, and it seemed like everybody would be standing around and watching. Then he would lean over and give me a big kiss on the cheek and tell me to be a good boy. It was so embarrassing for me. Here, I was twelve years old, and my Dad would lean over and kiss me goodbye!” He paused and then went on, “I remember the day I decided I was too old for a goodbye kiss. When we got to the school and came to a stop, he had his usual big smile. He started to lean toward me, but I put my hand up and said, “No, Dad.” It was the first time I had ever talked to him that way, and he had this surprised look on his face. I said, “Dad, I’m too old for a goodbye kiss. I’m too old for any kind of kiss.” My Dad looked at me for the longest time, and his eyes started to tear up. Then he turned and looked out the windshield. “ You’re right,” he said. “ You are a big boy....a man. I won’t kiss you anymore.” Frank got a funny look on his face, and the tears began to well up in his eyes, as he spoke. “It wasn’t long after that when my Dad went to sea and never came back. It was a day when most of the fleet (船队) stayed in, but not Dad. He had a big family to feed. They found his boat adrift with its nets half in and half out. He must have gotten into a strong wind and was trying to save the nets and the floats.” I looked at Frank and saw that tears were running down his cheeks. Frank spoke again. “Guys, you don’t know what I would give to have my Dad give me just one more kiss on the cheek…to feel his rough old face… to smell the ocean on him… to feel his arm around my neck. I wish I had been a man then. If I had been a man, I would never have told my Dad I was too old for a goodbye kiss.” 67. In Frank’s eyes, when his father said “You are a big boy… a man.”, he probably felt ________.

A.disappointed B.hurt C.excited D.proud 68. According to the story we can conclude that Frank’s father ________. A.was quite confident in his skills in fishing B.loved his children but hardly expressed it C.seldom gave up faced with challenges D.was full of devotion to his family 69. By saying the sentence “I wish I had been a man then…”, Frank meant ________. A.he was fed up with his father kissing him goodbye B.he deeply regretted what he had done to his father C.he was then too young to refuse a goodbye kiss D.he hoped that his father would forgive him 70.

A.The Smell of the Ocean B.We All Need Love C.A Goodbye Kiss D.Father’s Embarrassment 任务型阅读(共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分) A busy life can be personally satisfying, but it may make you feel too tired to achieve the inner peace that will connect you with your true happiness. Begin with simplifying your life and working towards a more peaceful state of mind. Recognize the differences between the things you need and the things you want. Our culture provides us with the message that materials will make our lives better. The reality is that most of these things will complicate our lives without bringing true happiness. Free yourself-- learn to be satisfied with fewer materials and greater simplicity. If you let someone else define your life, your’re missing the chance to follow your own desires. Your inner life is weakened when you are limited by conformity. Why do you give up your freedom and allowed all of your decisions to be defined by what others think you “should” do? Think for yourself. Let your passions be your guide. Life is full of opportunities to earn money, give services. Learn new skills and make new friends. Some of us want them all and fill up our timetable with all kind of activities. Rushing from one activity to another leaves you with no time to slow down. No matter how worthy you think your activities are, rethink them. Keep the ones that are most important and leave out the ones that are adding to the pace of your life with little return. Life is forever changing, and you will never reach a point of simplicity and endless happiness. But each moment you spend on the path to simplicity does have the possibility to bring happiness to your life. Title: 71________ to Find Happiness Through Simplicity A busy life will prevent you from 73 the inner peace. 72________ Try to 74________ your life to achieve a peaceful state of mind Distinguishing things you need from things you want.

The 74-year-old man has written more than 30 novels, plays and essays. He is the first South American winner of the prize since 1982 when it went to Colombian Gabriel Garcia Marquez. In the previous six years, the academy awarded the 10 million kronor (?938,000) prize to five Europeans and one Turk, sparking criticism that it was too Euro-centric. The Swedish Academy's Peter said Vargas Llosa was "an excellent gifted story-teller". He added that the writer was in New York and was told by telephone that he had won the prize'. "I will try to survive the Nobel Prize," he joked during a news conference later on Thursday. "It was a total surprise." But he said the honor would not affect his craft. Born in the town of Arequipa, Vargas Llosa took Spanish nationality in 1993—three years after an unsuccessful bid for the Peruvian presidency. The author has won some of the Western world's most famous literary medals including the Cervantes Prize in 1995—the Spanish-speaking world's most distinguished literary honor. The writer's international breakthrough came with the 1960s novel The Time of The Hero. The book was considered controversial in his homeland and 1,000 copies were burnt publicly by officers from the academy. His best-known works include Conversation In The Cathedral, The War of the End of the World and The Feast of the Goat. Several books were made into movies including the 1990 Hollywood film Tune in Tomorrow, based on his novel Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter" which starred Barbara Hershey, Peter Falk and Keanu Reeves. The author once had a great friendship with Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez, but their relationship turned into worse after Vargas Llosa hit Garcia Marquez at a theatre in Mexico City in 1976, leaving him with a black eye. Relations appeared to thaw(融合)in 2007, however, when Vargas Llosa provided the foreword to the 40th anniversary edition of Garcia Marquez's classic work. 56. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage? A.Only one of South American writers won the Nobel Prize in history. B.The news that Vargas Llosa got Nobel Prize was sent to him by mail. C.The Spanish-speaking world’s most famous literary honor is Cervantes Prize. D.The Swedish Academy has awarded 10 million kronor prize to Europeans since 2006. 57. Who performed in the film Tune in Tomorrow? A.Peter Falk and Keanu Reeves B.Garcia Marquez and Barbara Hershey C.Keanu Reeves and Garcia Marquez D.Peter Falk and Vargas Llosa 58. What's the right order of the events related to Vargas Llosa?

a. He wrote the foreword for Garcia Marquez. b. He hurt his friend in a fight. c. He wrote the novel The Time of The Hero. d. He took Spanish nationality. e. One novel came into a Hollywood film. A.c-b-d-e-a B.c-b-e-d-a C.d-b-c-a-e D.d-c-b-a-e B McDonald's Corp, founded in 1940 with a restaurant opened by Dick and Mac McDonald, which was bothered by criticism of its fatty foods, says it will remove Supersize French fries and soft drinks by the end of the year, to please health-minded customers. McDonald's Supersize option, which includes a 7-ounce fries carton and 42-ounce fountain soda, has also been targeted by critics as contributing to a growing obesity crisis in the United States where more than half the population is considered obese. From a neighborhood restaurant established in Des Plaines, Illinois in 1955 to today, more than 30,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries worldwide, McDonald's is the largest quick service restaurant organization in the world, selling primarily variations on meals consisting of hamburgers, carbonated drinks besides French fries. As the first international fast food company, McDonald's has become a focal point in public debate about rising obesity rates and consumer responsibility. Most standalone McDonald's restaurants offer both counter and drive-through service, with indoor and sometimes outdoor seating. The larger McDonald's grows, the more sensitive it becomes to negative customer understanding. According to this, McDonald's has tried to cater to varying cultural requirements, such as by customizing its menu to each country. The company, which began offering Supersize portions widely in 1994, said it is making the menu changes to "support a balanced lifestyle" approach that is in keeping with other recent moves to promote healthier behavior. These include a planned national launch of a Happy Meal for adults called Go Active! In the past year, it has introduced several health-oriented foods, such as entree-sized salads and healthy alternatives in children's Happy Meal, including milk and fruit. A new documentary film, called Super Size Me illustrates the negative effects of over-consumption of McDonald's food. The film has been released, but a McDonald's spokeswoman said that the menu changes are not related to any impact of the film on public awareness. McDonald's recognized that to be successful, it would have to be flexible and adapt to social changes. The company has been reducing complexity of its menu, part of a broader push to improve operations and service in its more than 13,000 US restaurants. Analysts said the change will allow McDonald's to continue its emphasis on foods with higher-quality elements and more money-earned, such as entrée-sized salads and all-white-meat Chicken McNuggets. 59. McDonald’s will remove Supersize French fries and soft drinks because _______. A.the first international fast food company says they are too big in size B.the health-minded customers complain they don’t taste delicious C.a new documentary film shows the negative effects of McDonald’s Supersize D.the company wants to gain some consumers who pay attention to their health 60. In order to support a balanced life style, which measure has the company NOT taken? A.Changing the menu. B.Offering some drink for free. C.Supplying milk and fruit D.Planning to launch a Happy Meal for adults. 61. What might be the author's attitude towards McDonald's new measures? A.Negative. B.Doubtful. C.Objective. D.Critical. 62. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined word "obese" in paragraph 2?

Scientists are confident about the formation of coal, but they do not seem so sure when asked about oil. They think that the oil under the surface of the earth originated in the distant past, and was formed from living things in the sea. Countless billions of small sea creatures and plants lived and sank to the seabed. They were covered with huge deposits of mud and by process of chemistry, pressure and temperature were changed through long ages into what we know as oil. For these creatures to become oil, it was necessary that they should be imprisoned between layers of rock for a great length of time. The statement that oil originated in the sea is confirmed by a glance at a map showing the chief oilfields of the world. Very few of them are far distant from the oceans of today. In some places gas' and oil come up to the surface of the sea from its bed. The rocks in which oil is found are of the marine origin too. They are rocks which were laid down by the action of water on the' bed of the ocean. Almost always the remains of shells, and other proofs of sea life are found close to the oil. A very common sedimentary rock is called shale, which is a soft rock and was obviously formed by being deposited on the seabed. And when there is shale, there is likely to be oil. There is a lot of luck in drilling for oil The drill may just miss the oil although it is near; on the other hand, it may strike oil at a fairly high level When the drill goes down, it brings up soil. The soil from various depths are examined for. Traces of oil. If they are disappointed at one place, the drillers go to another. Great sums of money have been spent, for example, in the deserts of Egypt, in looking for oil. Sometimes little is found. When we buy a few gallons of petrol for our cars, we pay not only the cost of the petrol, but also part of the cost of the search that is always going on. There are four main areas of the world where deposits of oil appear. The first is that of the Middle East. Another is the area between North and South America, and a third, between Asia and Australia. The fourth area is the part near the North Pole. When there is no more oil in the present oilfields to bring up, it is possible that this cold region may become the scene of busy oil activity. 67. Which of the following pictures shows a description in the passage? 68. According to the passage, oil was formed from ______ by process of chemistry, pressure and temperature. A.sea creatures and rock B.mud, rocks and shales C.living things and mud D.sea creatures and plants 69. From the passage, we can infer that __________. A.the North Pole is the largest oil field in the world B.the Middle East has the finest oil in the main oil areas C.people haven't opened any oilfield in the North Pole D.only in oceans can we find oil 70.

Title: Finding ways to green schools Help to green school

Reasons A.How to explore and drill for the Oil B.The Oil in Oceans C.The Origin and Distribution of the Oil D.The Elements of the Oil 任务型阅读(共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分) Our kids spend at least 6 hours a day, 180 days a year, at school. Sending them off to a safe, chemical-free school is as important as establishing a clean and poisonous-free home. Helping your local school to go green is worth your time and energy and will set a wonderful example for your children. What can concerned parents do to ensure that their children are not being exposed to dangerous chemicals when trying to learn? Can parents make a difference in the curriculum to be sure that their children are prepared for a green future when they graduate? Parents can make a difference. Getting involved in your child's education doesn’t mean stopping with homework help. Parental involvement in greening up our schools can go a long way in improving the learning environment for our children while protecting the Earth's precious natural habitats. Start an eco-committee of parents and interested teachers to organize and direct green activities and efforts at your school. In middle schools and high schools, students should be present on the committee as well. Find out if your school has an environmental mission statement—if they don't, help establish one. Conduct an environmental survey of the buildings and grounds and create a plan of action based on the results. Get students involved in the plan of action and have teachers discuss the issues with their students. Encourage teachers to include green topics in their curriculum. Offer to present a project or topic for discussion to your child's class. Buy your child lead-free lunch boxes. Send your child to school with a healthy lunch in a reusable container. Attempt to create a "trash-free" lunch. Buy your child a large, chemical-free water bottle for them to use throughout the school day. Buy unbleached (本色的)recycled-paper notebooks. If your older student carries a cell phone or laptop computer to school, consider a solar powered backpack to power her gadgets (装置). Buy backpacks made from recycled materials. Buy non-poisonous school supplies including glue, crayons and markers. Ask the teacher to use low-odor dry erasing markers and dust-free chalk. Offer to purchase them for the teacher if cost is an issue. Request that the school provide a clean, safe indoor environment and clean air by using non-toxic cleaners in the classrooms and throughout the building. Request that school forms and notices be distributed through email whenever possible to cut back on paper use. Find coloring pages online. It is easy to find exactly what your child would like to color without having to buy—or waste—an entire coloring book that contains pages they are not interested in. Encourage your child to get involved in the recycling effort within the school and to participate in any other going green program, although it may be hard. In a word, it would be difficult to have children get involved in the recycling effort within the school and participate in any other going green program. Doing such things can give children's daily life colorful meaning—it's also a reason. If the program that you do is a challenge, set your goals and work hard. You will succeed.

Many times my friend June would say, “If I ever get rich, I’m getting a completely new wardrobe (大衣柜) and moving into a bigger apartment.” I thought of her words and her chances of being rich are about as good as mine. But, to everyone’s surprise, a few years ago June did come to large inheritance(遗产). At first June said very little about the money. As the initial shock disappeared, she bacame excited, June is a great believer in making lists, so I want surprised to find her writing down all the ways she would spend her new wealth. As time went on, she started revising the list. What had been midway down the list was now at the top. At last, I said to her, “You know, it isn’t necessary to spend all your inheritance at once. Take come time; think about it.” “I know, I know,” she answered with a little bit anger. Then one morning June called, “I’ve decided how I want to use my new inheritance. I want to see what you think,” she said. This wasn’t something I looked forward to, but we had been friends so long. As we sat, June spread a sheet of paper on the table. To my great surprise, she had written only two words: Charities, and Grandchildren-in that order. Thought I had promised to keep quiet, I couldn’t keep from asking how she came to this decision. “Well,” she said, “I took your advice and thought about it.” She added, “Helping others means a lot to me, so I’m hoping this gift will help people in need.” I interrupted, “But what about this big apartment you most hope to have?” “At first it was hard, but it doesn’t seem as important any more”, she answered with a smile. Then June moved her hand, and I could see a few words written in tiny letters at the bottom of the page. After having a look at the small print, I burst into laughter. June had written: AND one new wardrobe. 56.From the passage we an learn that the writer at first . A.was richer than her friend June B.was no richer than her friend June C.was poorer than her friend June D.was interested in money as June 57.When making a list of how to deal with her inheritance, June . A.didn’t change it at all B.had a quarrel with the writer C.kept it secret from the writer D.made some changes to it 58.When June called the writer to talk about her new decision, the writer . A.felt than June would do something meaningful B.refused at first, but changed her mind later C.had decided not to make any comments on June’s list D.was eager to learn more about the new list B To Whom It May Concern: Your address was forwarded to us by Why Bother Magazine. All of us here think The International Institute of Not Doing Much is the best organization in the world. You know how to avoid unnecessary activities! We closely followed the advice in your article. First, we replaced all our telephones with carrier pigeons. Simply removing the jingle of telephones and replacing them with the pleasant sounds of birds has had a remarkable effect on everyone. Besides, birds are cheaper than telephone service. After all, we are a business. We have to think of the bottom line. As a side benefit, the birds also fertilize the lawn outside the new employee sauna(蒸气浴室). Next, we sold the computers off to Stab, Grab, Grit, and Nasty, a firm of lawyers nearby. Our electricity bill went way down. Big savings! The boss is impressed. We have completely embraced paper technology. Now that we all use pencils, doodling is on the increase, and the quality of pencilwomanship is impressive, as you can tell from my handwriting in this letter. By the way, if you can, please send this letter back to us. We can erase and reuse it. Just tie it to Maggie’s leg and she’ll know where

to take it. Now it’s very calm and quiet here. You can notice the difference. No more loud chatter on the telephones! All we hear is the scratching of pencil on paper, the sound of pigeons, and the delivery of inter-office correspondence by paper airplane. Wonderful! I’ve always wanted to work for an insurance company ever since I was a little girl. Now it’s perfect. Sincerely yours, Eleanor Lightly Spokeswoman and Company Hair Stylist ABC Activity Insurance: Insure against overdoing it 59.Which of the following best describes the life the author is leading? A.A simple, slow-paced life. B.A life of hard work and security. C.A religious, peasant-like life. D.A life away from paper and pencils. 60.Where is Eleanor’s letter sent to? A.Why Bother Magazine. B.ABC Activity Insurance Company. C.Stab, Grab, Grit, and Nasty Law Firm. D.The International Institute of Not Doing Much. 61.Which of the following is practiced in the author’s company? A.Replacing the manual work system with modern technology. B.Turning off lights in the daytime to save electricity. C.Recycling paper resources whenever possible. D.Buying birds and pets as company for the staff. 62.What is true about Maggie? A.She works as a manager in the author’s company. B.She sometimes helps fertilize the lawn outside the sauna. C.She often helps with inter-office correspondence using e-mail. D.Her handwriting has improved a lot after entering the company. C A popular saying goes, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” However, that’s not really true. Words have the power to build us up or tear us down. It doesn’t matter if the words come from someone’s else or ourselves --- the positive and negative effects are just as lasting. We all talk to ourselves sometimes. We’re usually too embarrassed to admit it, though. In fact, we really shouldn’t be because more and more experts believe talking to ourselves out loud is a healthy habit. This “self-talk” helps us motivate ourselves, remember things, solve problems, and calm ourselves down. Be aware, though, that as much as 77% of self-talk tends to be negative. So in order to stay positive, we should only speak words of encouragement to ourselves. We should also be quick to give ourselves a pat on the back. The next time you finish a project, do well in a test, or finally clean your room, join me in saying “Good job!” Often, words come out of our mouths without us thinking about the effect they will have. But we should be aware that our words cause certain responses in others. For example, when returning an item to a store, we might use warm, friendly language during the exchange. And the clear will probably respond in a similar manner. Or harsh(刻 薄的)and critical language will most likely cause the clerk to be defensive. Words possess power because of their lasting effect. Many of us regret something we once said. And we remember unkind words said to us! Before speaking, we should always ask ourselves: Is it loving? Is it needed? If what we want to say doesn’t pass this test, then it’s better left unsaid. Words possess power: both positive and negative. Those around us receive encouragement when we speak positively. We can offer hope, build self-esteem (自尊) motivate others to do their best. Negative words destroy and

all those things. Will we use our words to hurt or to heal? The choice is ours. 63.The main idea of the first paragraph is that ________.

Try home exchanges – swapping houses with strangers. Agree to use each other’s cars, and you can save dollars on car rentals (租赁费), too. Home exchanges are not new. At least one group, Intervac, has been facilitating such an arrangement since 1953. But trading online is gaining popularity these days, with several sites in operation, including HomeExchanges. Founded in 1992, with some 28,000 listings, this company bills itself as the world’s largest home exchange club, reporting that membership has increased 30% this year. The annual fee is usually less than US$100. Members can access thousands of listings for apartments, villas, suburban homes and farms around the world. Initial contact is made via e-mail, with subsequent communication usually by phone. Before a match is made, potential swappers tend to discuss a lot. However, the concept may sound risky to some people. What about theft? Damage? These are reasonable causes for concern, but equally unlikely. As one swapper puts it, “Nobody is going to fly across the ocean or drive 600 miles to come steal your TV. Besides, at the same time they’re staying in your home, you are staying in their home.” Exchange sites recommend that swappers discuss such matters ahead of time. They may fill out an agreement spelling out who shoulders which responsibilities if a problem arises. It does not matter if the agreement would hold up in court, but it does give the exchangers a little satisfaction. Generally, the biggest complaint among home exchangers has to do with different standards of cleanliness. Swappers are supposed to make sure their home is in order before they depart, but one person’s idea of “clean” may be more forgiving than another’s. Some owners say if they come back to a less-than-sparkling kitchen, it may be inconvenient but would not sour them on future exchanges. 67.What is the second paragraph mainly about? A.How to exchange homes. B.How home exchange is becoming popular. C.The biggest home exchange agency Intervac. D.A contrast between Intervac and HomeExchanges. 68.Which of the following is closest in meaning to “bills” in the second paragraph? A.advertises B.dedicates C.replaces D.participates 69.How do home exchangers normally begin their communication? A.By phone. B.By e-mail. C.Via a matchmaker. D.Via a face-to-face meeting.

The findings add a fascinating new page to the epic(史诗)of the Silk Road, which spread far and wide in no time. The latest and most surprising discovery is pieces of silk found in the hair of an Egyptian mummy from about l, 000 BC, long before regular traffic on the Silk Road and at least one thousand years before silk was previously thought to be used in Egypt. Other research may extend human activity along this route back even further, perhaps a million years to the moving of human ancestors into eastern Asia. The official origin of East-West trade along the road is usually placed in the late 2nct century BC when an agent of the Chinese Emperor Wu-di returned from a dangerous secret mission(使命)across the desert into the remote high country of Central Asia. The agent, Zhang Qian, traveled as far as Afghanistan and brought back knowledge of even more distant lands such as Persia, Syria and a place known as Lijien, perhaps Rome. Historians have called this one of the most important journeys in ancient times. His journey opened the way for what have been thought to be the first indirect contacts between the ancient world's two superpowers, China and Rome. Chinese silk, first traded to Central Asia for war horses, was soon finding its way to the markets of Rome through a network of businessmen. But the new discoveries show that Chinese silk apparently existed in the West long before the Han emperor started organized trade over the Silk Road. The research could change thinking about the early history of world trade and provide insights(了解)into the mystery of just how and when Europe first realized the glorious culture at the other end of Eurasia.

The sixth census will use about 6.5 million census takers, each dressed in a uniform and bearing a certificate, asking everyone living and working on the mainland for information about their personal lives. Anyone born before Monday gets included, and anyone born after Monday gets left out until the next one, in 2020, according to the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). About 90 percent of the people will be asked to fill in an 18-item form, coveting their name, sex, ethnic group, household registration, and education; the other 10 percent, chosen randomly, will be asked to fill in a longer 45-question form. Foreigners have it easier: they only have eight questions to answer. One in 10,000 households will be visited again from Nov.11 to 30, with the NBS sorting and filing the data through December.In April 2011, the main census data will be made public. Around 700 million yuan($103 million)of central government funds will be spent on the census, according to official figures. And, if the previous household visits are anything to go by, the census takers will not have an easy job, because many people worry about their privacy, not to mention the rapidly swelling migrant population in major cities. Many census takers previously found that people simply refused to open their door to them. According to Tan Bihua, one census taker in the southern city of Guangzhou, where the census started on Oct 25-ahead of the nationwide effort because of the 16th Asian Games-each person is responsible for about 120 to 150 households and the greatest difficulty is that they often cannot even find the people. Tan said she had to pay eight visits to one household to get their information because they were migrant workers who had no regular work hours, according to the Southern Metropolis Daily. In Belting, most residents received a mobile-phone message over the weekend, asking them to take part in a cooperative spirit. Vice-Premier Li Keqiang, on Thursday, also asked for people to cooperate with the census takers so that the statistics will be more accurate. Li promised that any personal information collected will be kept strictly confidential. If people repeatedly refuse to open the door to the census takers, they have the tight to ask the police for help, the Beijing News reported on Sunday. For foreigners, who are being included in China’s census for the first time, special preparations have been made. Yang Shu, deputy director of the census office of Maizidian, a multinational community in Beijing’s Chaoyang District, said their office has recruited volunteers with bilingual(双语) or multilingual skills to help with the census.They have also translated the questionnaire into at least five languages, including the usual English, French and German.

“Foreigners’ lifestyles are different and sometimes it’s difficult to find them, so we suggest they make an appointment with the census takers--a time that is convenient for them,” Yang politely pointed out. China holds its national census every 10 years. previous one showed that the world’s most populous country The had 1.29 billion people. 56.Which of the following is WRONG according to the passage? A.Bilingual or multilingual skills are necessary in doing the census at times. B.Nine tenths of the people will fill in an 18-item form during the census. C.Census in Guangzhou started ahead of time because of the Asian Games. D.Yang Shu is a community in Chaoyang District where many foreigners live. 57.We can figure out that the result of the fifth census in China was announced in ____________. A.1991 B.1996 C.2001 D.2006 58.Compared with the fifth census, the sixth one is ___________ according to the passage. A.just as easy B.almost as difficult C.relatively easier D.somewhat harder 59.Why do some people refuse to open their door to census takers? A.Because they hope the police will come to their homes to help. B.Because most of their family members are hard to find. C.Because they worry about their own privacy being let out. D.Because they are unwilling to cooperate with the census takers. B I believe honesty is one of the greatest gifts there is.I know they call it a lot of fancy names these days, like integrity and forthrightness.But it doesn’t make any difference what they call it; it’s still what makes a man a good citizen.This is my code, and I try to live by. I’ve been in the taxi business for thirty-five years, and I know there is a lot about it that is not so good.Taxi drivers have to be rough fellows.You’ve got to be tough to fight the New York traffic eight hours a day, these days.Because taxi drivers are tough, people get the wrong impression that they are bad.Taxi drivers are just like other people.Most of them will shake down as honest fellows.You read in the Papers almost every week where a taxi driver turns in money or jewels or bonds, stuff like that people leave in their cabs.If they weren’t honest, you wouldn’t be reading those stories in the papers. One time in Brooklyn, I found a diamond ring in my cab.I remembered helping a lady with a lot of stuff that day, so I went back to where I had dropped her off.It took me almost two days to trace her down in order to return her ring to her.I didn’t get as much as “thank you.” Still, I felt good because I had done what was right.I think I felt better than she did. I was born and raised in Ireland and lived there until I Was nineteen years old.I came to this country in 1913 where I held several jobs to earn a few dollars before being a soldier in World War I. After the war, I bought my own cab and have owned one ever since.It hasn’t been too easy at times, but my wife takes care of our money and we have a good bit put away for a rainy day. People ask me about tips.As far as I know, practically everyone will give you something.Come to think of it, most Americans are pretty generous. always try to be nice to everyone, whether they tip or not. believe in God and I I try to be a good member of my parish(教区).I try to act toward others like I think God wants me to act.I have been trying this for a long time, and the longer I try, the easier it gets. 60.What does the writer really want to illustrate in the first paragraph? A.Honesty is called a lot of fancy names. B.Honesty is more important than anything else. C.Honesty brings him whatever he wants in life. D.All people think he is honest whatever he does.

Or is the relief of the stimulation centered in the brain? Perhaps neither one, a new study suggests.Neuroscientists report that specialized cells in the spinal cord(脊髓) appear to be critically involved in producing the feeling of an itch and the feeling of relief after the application of fingernails, at least in healthy individuals. “It’s a very important study; itching is a major problem for millions of patients,” said Dr.Gil Yosipovitch. Dr.Yosipoviteh cautioned that the findings may not apply to chronic(习惯性的) itches.“But this is the kind of work thru should help open this area up to more research.” The researchers isolated(孤独) in monkeys cellular(细胞的) connections that run from the surface of the foot to the spinal cord and then to the part for feelings in the brain.They caused the feeling of itchiness (发痒)by injecting something under the skin.They chose some cells al base of the spinal cord.Most are sensitive to pain and some to both pain and itchiness.And when the researchers scratched the itchy skin on the monkeys’ feet, it quieted the cell’s activity. Scientists argue that itching is most likely related to grooming(动物的梳毛), and evolved to protect animals against poisonous plants.But the biology of the itch has been a mystery and ignored for years by researchers who have been far more focused on pain. It is suggested that itch, like pain, may be a “gated” system where signals from other nerve cells can interfere with the feeling. Scratching the skin near, but not directly on, tile spot that itches often provides relief, just as rubbing an aching arm can reduce pain. As with some kinds of pain, small reminders of an itching feeling can get people scratching, often without being entirely aware of it.“I give lectures about itching.” Dr.Giesler said, “and I’ll stand up there in front of a whole roomful of people, show a few slides and pretty soon I’ll look out and 90 percent of the audience is scratching.” Dr.Yosipovitch said there was a long way to go before doctors could expect treatments.For one thing the miserable, chronic itch common in many medical problems most likely involves other mechanisms(机制). “But I feel excited about this finding,” he said.“It’s a sign that this field is really evolving,” 67.The new study shows that __________. A.scratching to relieve an itch remains a vast mystery B.scratching seems to calm the nerves and therefore relieve itches C.scratching can be an effective treatment for all itches D.the relief of the stimulation is centered in the brain 68.Researchers have always overlooked the biology of the itch because ___________. A.they consider it of no medical value B.they are more focused on pain C.they consider it too easy to study D.they consider it too tough to stud 69.What can we infer from the text?

Living cells can be grown in a laboratory environment in space where they are not affected by gravity(引 力).Growing cultures for long periods aboard the station will further advance this research.Such cultures can be used to test new treatments for cancer without risking harm to patients. The effects of long-term exposure to reduced gravity on humans will be studied aboard the station.Studies of these effects may lead to a better understanding of the body systems and similar illnesses on Earth and may provide information useful for future space travels. Fluids(液体), flames, metal and other materials will be the subject of basic research on the station.Scientists plan to study this field to create more perfect materials for applications.The study of all of these areas may lead to developments that can develop many industries on Earth. Some experiments aboard the station will take place on the outside of the station.Such outer space experiments can study the space environment and how long-term exposure to space affects materials.This research can help better understand the nature of space, improve spacecraft design and help explain how the universe developed. Observations of the Earth from space help the study of large-scale, long-term changes in the environment of the earth.Studies in this field can increase understanding of the forests, oceans and mountains.The effects of volcanoes hurricanes and typhoons can be studied.In addition, changes to the Earth that are caused by the human race can be observed. As part of the Commercialization of space research on the station, industries will participate in research by conducting experiments and studies aimed at developing new products and services. results may benefit those on The Earth not only by providing new products as a result, but also by creating new jobs to make the products.

Researchers at the University of Essex in Colchester are working on the robotic fish as part of a £2.5million EU-funded project to find new ways of monitoring water waste. Each fish will be about 50cm long, 15cm high and 12cm wide.They will be packed with pollution sensors(传感器)that can electronically "smell" harmful chemicals in the water. Scientists have developed “swarm(群)intelligence techniques” which allow the fish to work as a team without humans. The robotic fish will communicate with each other using wi-fi as they seek out areas of pollution.They work out where they are with inbuilt GPS systems and artificial intelligence software will enable them to move without the need for a human operator: they will only warn staff if areas of pollution are found. A fish that finds pollution sends the data of the location to others. “Each school will contain five fish, and they will constantly monitor for pollutants,” said Dr. Dongbing Gu, who is leading the research. “When they find something, they will send a message to the rest of the school, who will then gather in the area to take readings.” The fish move their bodies up and down like waves—driven by motors—and use fins and a tail to change direction.It is hoped they will travel at speeds of up to half a metre per second. Working models could be available within 18 months.Different sensors will be fitted to hunt for different pollutants 污染物)The data could be used to build a “real time” 3D map of areas of pollution in the water, allowing ( . operators to determine the best way to clean up the area. The fish will initially be used in ports to monitor leaks from large ships, but Dr Gu said the same system could be used in the Thames.Researchers hope the robotic fish will be able to spend up to 24 hours in the water before needing to be recharged. 56.The purpose of the robotic fish project is to __________. A.find out whether inbuilt GPS systems are useful B.find new ways to monitor water waste C.prove that robotic fish can be sent into the ThamesD.test the speed of the robotic fish 57.Robotic fish can find harmful pollutants by using __________. A.GPS systems B.a 3D pollution map C.pollution sensors D.fins and a tail 58.According to the passage, which of the following statements is true? A.The robotic fish have been used in ports as well as in the Thames. B.It takes 24 hours for robotic fish to be recharged. C.The robotic fish can work as a team without humans. D.The robotic fish can not change direction in water. 59.The passage mainly tells us about __________.

Celebrate Christmas with Google’s holiday doodle By Alicia Pflaumer / December 23, 2010 Google launched an interactive holiday doodle(涂鸦)today with 17 pictures of scenes that represent holiday celebrations from around the world.

Original Google logo?

17 interactive pictures of scenes around the world

These pictures of scenes are divided into six groups (from the left to the right).The specific contents of each group are illustrated as follows: Group 1 St.Basil’s Cathedral, Acropolis and Buch de Noel. Group 2 Mt.Fuji, the Great Wall of China, pierogi and Indian dance styles. Group 3 the Sydney harbor, the Sahara Desert, Oud and Chili Pepper. Group 4 Venice gondolas and Nepal. Group 5 Chilean vineyards and African kanga. Group 6 Up on the housetop and the Moroccan Henna lamp. Google rolled out their holiday greeting doodle Thursday morning.Seventeen different interactive images replace the letters of the original Google logo. At first, you’ll see pictures of scenes around the world. Mouse over each picture and it enlarges.Click on the first image and you’re taken to a Google search on St.Basil’s Cathedral in Russia, and as you make your way through the digital postcards, you will travel to the Great Wall of China, the Sahara Desert, Venice gondolas, and end with “Up on the housetop,”—a famous Santa song written by Benjamin Hanby in 1864. Look carefully, and you may notice that the groups roughly form the word “Google.” You may also notice that the order of the colors matches the letters in the original logo: blue, red, yellow, blue, green, red. The creator is designer Michael Lopez, who has been working on this year’s holiday doodle since July.Along with a team of four other artists, this design took about 250 hours. He told the Wall Street Journal, “We want to end the year with a bang.” Well, he has done it. The doodle originally was meant to be displayed in installments 分期交付) the folks at Google decided that ( but it would be best to put it up all at once.It will stay up through Christmas. It’s been a creative year for Google doodles.We’ve seen birthdays, holidays and interactive videogames doodles.We’ll look forward to seeing what they have for us in 2011.

A.the entire Christmas doodle went online at the same time B.it took four artists 250 hours to create Google’s latest Christmas doodle C.the Christmas doodle was launched on the morning of Dec.25, 2010 D.people didn’t celebrate Christmas Day until Benjamin Hanby wrote “Up on the housetop” 63.From Mr.Lopez’s words, we can know that Google wants to end 2010 __________. A.by taking over the Internet world B.in a successful way C.by defeating other companies completely D.with great effort and much time C th MEXICO CITY—The 16 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP16) was held in Cancun, a tourist city on Mexico’s Caribbean coast, from Nov 29 to Dec 10, 2010 to continue to search solutions to the climate problem. The parties have met annually since 1995 in Conferences of the Parties (COP) to evaluate progress in dealing with climate change.The Cancun was another important conference to move forward the “Bali Road Map” negotiations after the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen last year, which failed to reach a legally binding treaty (有约束力的条约) the for years beyond 2012. Four UN climate talks had been held since Copenhagen conference, three in German city Bonn and one in China’s Tianjin, with some progress having been made in climate payments and forest protection. The first round of United Nations climate change talks in Bonn lasted from April 9 to 12, with different countries agreeing to hold two more meetings in 2010.The talks were delayed due to differences between developing and developed countries on how to deal with the final results of the Copenhagen conference. The second round of talks was held from May 31 to June 11 with “imbalance” becoming the key word.The disagreement could not cover some progress made during the past 12 days, even it was just a little.The progress was made in adding more details of how a system can work in practice, including climate funds and transfer of clean technologies. The third round of UN climate talks held from Aug 2 to 6.Representatives discussed a draft text and advanced slowly on emission(排放)cuts promises and other issues. The fourth round of talks was held in China’s Tianjin, as the parties have made some progress in climate payments and forest protection, each side “is very close” to agreeing with each other to build a climate fund. Before the COP 16, experts said that optimism would remain for significant progress in negotiations on the “Bali Map Road,” though an international community would agree it might be difficult to achieve a legally binding agreement. The conference gathered the participants from governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations and research institutions from 180 countries.It is the penultimate opportunity for parties to reach a legally-binding treaty to replace the Kyoto Protocol(京都议定书)which will be no longer valid in 2012. 64.According to the passage, the second round of talks lasting from May 31 to June 11 __________. A.was a total failure B.got limited progress C.reached a legally binding treaty D.was the most successful round of talks 65.Which of the following may be the result of the fourth round of talks held in Tianjin? A.Different sides set up a climate fund. B.Different countries signed a legally binding treaty. C.Different countries agreed to hold two more meetings in 2010.

D.Different sides seem very likely to agree to set up a climate fund. 66.What does the underlined word “penultimate” in the last paragraph mean? A.The second. B.The last. C.The last but one. D.The last but two. 67.It can be inferred from the passage that __________. A.it might be difficult for the UN to reach an agreement on certain issues B.the Copenhagen conference aiming to reach a treaty reached its goal C.the Cancun conference was held to reduce cultural differences between countries D.sixteen rounds of UN climate talks have been held since last year D Over the past summer, many young Chinese students reportedly downloaded and watched online courses given by top universities from the US and UK.Many people welcome this as a new form of acquiring knowledge, while some see this as an opportunity to learn from these top-ranked universities without paying the high fee. By talking to some Chinese friends who enjoyed those online courses, I find that what they like about those courses is largely the free, interactive and humorous atmosphere in American university classes.Some Chinese professors, especially young ones, have already taken steps to reform course structure, provide more class discussion and adopt various evaluations rather than one final examination to determine students’ grades. However, the Chinese tradition of staying serious in the classroom remains the same.In some cases, the teacher just reads out the text directly from the textbook for the whole class period. I cannot agree more with those who attend these free online courses.Online courses offered by western universities will probably change the tradition of how the Chinese students learn things. However, these free courses cannot offer everything taught by those Western universities.Young Chinese can learn the methods and subjects, but there will always be a gap between watching it online and experiencing it in person. From my experience studying in the US, the most valuable lessons I have learned were not in class.My best source of learning was the motivation and encouragement from my classmates and friends—questioning and arguing about theories and ideas.Or it was through my professor’s help during the one-on-one office hours. The most important experiences cannot be copied by watching a course through the computer screen. A latest report from the Community College Research Center at Columbia University suggests it isn’t necessarily the online method that helps students learn more.In fact, it is the qualitative (质量的) values that matter —the learning environment, the interactive atmosphere, and the instruction and motivation from professors and classmates.These values are immeasurable and they are lost in translation with those digital courses. Online courses are only a new method of learning and consumption; the missing ingredient (要素)from these online courses—the qualitative values of learning—still lie within the university itself. 68.The author finds that online courses offered by western universities are popular among Chinese students mainly because of __________. A.their qualitative values of evaluation B.the personal experiences C.the good reputation of the universities D.the good atmosphere of learning 69.According to the passage, which of the following statements is true? A.Qualitative values of learning are well reflected in the online courses. B.A latest report from Columbia University shows that traditional classroom teaching plays no role in helping students. C.The author disagrees with the idea that online courses will benefit the Chinese students. D.Western universities often adopt diverse and flexible teaching methods.

Building the fastest supercomputer has become a source of national pride, as these machines are valued for their ability to solve problems in areas like defense, energy and science.These problems are related to national interests.Supercomputing technology is also found in business.Oil and gas companies use supercomputers to find oil and gas. Obviously, research centers with large supercomputers attract top scientific talents.This adds extra importance to the machines—they’re more than just huge computers. China’s new supercomputer will be used to speed up greatly scientific calculations, such as hurricane and tsunami modeling, cancer research, car design and even studying stars. In 2008, two US scientists put together a step-by-step guide on how to build a supercomputer using PlayStation 3 video-game consoles(控制台) .Modern supercomputers are built by combining thousands of small computer servers(服务器)and using software to turn them into one large computer.Really, any organization with enough material and technology can create a fast machine. The Chinese system follows that model by linking thousands upon thousands of computer servers. the secret But behind the system—and the technological achievement—is China’s own networking technology.“That technology was built by them,” Dongarra said.“They are taking supercomputing very seriously and using a lot of time and money.” “China is still a developing country,” said Sha Chaoqun, manager at Dawning Company which is the leading supercomputer maker in China.“Maybe one day, China’s total computing power can be greater than that of the US, but there is still a long way to go before we get there.” Paragraph outline Supporting details ◇Tianhe-1 has a high computing speed, (71)__________ it the fastest computer in the world. ◇Tianhe-1 is 40 percent faster than the (72)__________ fastest supercomputer in the world. ◇(73)__________ Jack Dongarra, we learn that the Chinese supercomputer is faster than the existing Number One machine. ◇The high-speed computer is (75)__________ to solve problems related to national interests. ◇Besides (76)__________, supercomputing technology can also be found in areas of defence, energy and science. ◇It’s obvious that top scientific talents are (77)__________ to research centers

my arrival. I realised that t had left my cell phone in my bag and had no way to contact my relatives.They would be waiting for me at the airport about five hours before the bus got to Newcastle, not knowing what had happened.Without hesitation, the young lady offered me the use of her cell phone. When the bus made a rest stop, she asked me if I was getting out.I replied that I wouldn’t as I still had sandals on, and bare feet weren’t ideal for the cold weather, When she got back on, she’d bought me some tea and a packet of sweets to eat. When we eventually arrived in Newcastle, the woman checked that someone was there to meet me.I asked her to wait a moment while I got my purse to repay her, but when I looked up she had gore. was unable to even verbally I thank her. 56.We learn from the passage that ____________. A.the author had little money to buy the air ticket from London to Newcastle B.the author probably flew to London from a warm place C.the author’s relatives missed meeting her in London D.the author’s cell phone wasn’t functioning in Britain 57.Which of the following information is of great importance to the author’s relatives? A.Why the flight was called off. B.Why the flight was delayed. C.Where the author was put up. D.When the author would arrive. 58.What does the passage mainly tell us? A.British people always suffer from terrible weather in winter. B.British people are usually helpful. C.The author was kind of careless. D.The author was grateful to the airline. B Accurately forecasting the weather is a very hard thing to do.There are many parts of weather dynamics-the study of how water and air in motion cause weather patterns-to consider.Even the best forecast can be changed by a small weather disturbance halfway around the world.Today’s forecast use complex computer models, weather instruments, and detailed analyses of daily observations to predict the weather.However, it hasn’t always been that way.People, like your grandparents, use folklore and proverbs to help forecast the weather.They remembered what conditions caused changes and observed the factors associated with weather: atmospheric and cloud conditions, temperature, winds, and reactions of plants and animals.Many people believe that this way of forecasting weather is accurate more often than modem forecasting. Grandma’s aching joints might indicate the arrival of a low-pressure system.She might also observe the geese flying lower than usual, confirming the low-pressure system.Finally, she might feel dampness on her skin, a sign of high humidity (湿度).Based on these three observations, grandma might warn that a storm is brewing. Joints and nerves can indicate dropping air pressure, Dissolved gases in the blood form bubbles under low air pressure.This causes pain in joints and nerve endings.Geese and other birds respond to changes in air pressure by adjusting how high they fly.In the fair, calm weather of a high-pressure system, the birds fly higher than in the stormy weather associated with a low-pressure system. Nature provides other clues to changing weather.A decrease in air pressure causes deer and elk to come down from the mountains to look for shelter.Some animals feed more than usual.The higher humidity before a storm causes some insects to leave the trees and gather near the ground.Some flowers close so rain doesn’t get inside them.In winter, rhododendron plants curl up to protect themselves as the temperature drops. Several of the sayings apply in particular areas of the world.Here are some of them. ■Early thunder, early spring. ■Rainbow in the morning 8ives you fair warning. ■When teeth and bones and bunions ache, expect the clouds to fill the lake. ■When high clouds and tow clouds do not match together, prepare for a blow and a change in the weather. 59.It is true that ___________.

A.using folklore and proverbs to forecast weather is more accurate than modem forecasting B.complex computer models and weather instruments can always forecast weather accurately C.modern forecasting cannot always guarantee accurate weather forecasting for some reason D.modem forecasting along with other observations is sure to give accurate weather forecast 60.In a low-pressure system, you may notice the following EXCEPT that ___________. A.some birds will be seen flying near the surface of the earth B.some flowers close so rain doesn’t get inside C.some animals come down from mountains D.some insects disappear from ground 61.It is a fact that the behaviour of plants and animals is _________. A.likely to reflect long-term weather forecasting B.likely to reflect short-term weather forecasting C.unlikely to reflect any kind of weather forecasting D.more likely to reflect both short-term and long-term weather forecasting 62.What does the passage mainly tell us? A.People can forecast weather with no modern equipment. B.How to use proverbs to forecast weather forecasting. C.Hard as it is, weather forecasting has a scientific base. D.The importance of weather forecasting. C The United States has always been a country of many cultures. Before Europeans came to North America, many groups of Native Americans lived here. Different Native American groups had different cultures. first Europeans The in the United States were from England and Holland, but immigrants came from all European countries.Many people also immigrated from Asia and Africa.Sadly, many Africans were brought to the United States as slaves. Many immigrants come from Latin America too. Today, the United States has people from more cultures than ever. In the 19th century, people spoke of the United States as a “melting pot.” People thought that all immigrates should forget their native cultures and languages and become English-speaking Americans.They felt that people should assimilate - join American culture.However, not everyone wanted to assimilate completely.Many people tried to keep parts of their cultures, such as foods, customs, and languages.However, their children often forgot their parents’ or grandparents’ language.But most Americans, even those whose families have been here a long time, can tell the countries their relatives came from.And of course, new immigrants take great pride in their curare and language. For all of these reasons, melting pot is no longer a good way to describe the United States.Instead, people now call the United States a “salad bowl.” They say salad bowl because in a salad, you can still see all of the individual parts (lettuce, tomato, and so on), but all the different parts mixed together and begin to take on the flavor of one another. 63.Which of the following is the key information the writer wants to tell us in the first paragraph? A.There used to be many groups of Native Americans. B.Englishmen were among the first to settle in America. C.Asians and Africans also immigrated to America. D.USA today is made up of people from across the world. 64.The “melting pot” ___________. A.is an accurate way to describe the United States B.is a place where people from different cultures should assimilate completely C.cannot accurately reflect the reality in the United States D.cannot be replaced by the “salad bowl” 65.Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A.Many immigrates to the United States try to keep some of their culture. B.Immigrates are encouraged to use English wherever they go in the USA.

C.Children of early immigrates can speak English as well as their parents’ native language. D.New immigrants want to live in their own culture and language. 66.The “salad bowl” reflects the fact that immigrates to the United States ____________. A.help each other B.assimilate only partially C.take great pride in their culture and language D.remain independent D Expecting good things can make you healthier and might even lengthen your life, says researcher Suzaane Segerstrom, PhD, author of Breaking Murphy’s Law.Segerstrom is coauthor of a recent review of studies on the benefits of a positive attitude---and has experienced them herself.We asked her about optimism’s principles and payoffs. l) Feeling well helps when you’re not well. “When researchers look at people who have similar medical conditions, they can predict who’s likely to live longer: the one who feels his health is better.There’s something about that feeling of wellness that’s important, even--maybe especially--if you’re ill.Optimism also seems to help buffer (减缓) you against stress.I’ve been studying first-year law students for 16 years.That’s a very stressed group, but in my most recent study, each time a student’s optimism increased one point on a five-point scale, his immune (免疫性的) response to an injected virus or yeast improved by 20 percent.” 2) Optimism is something you do. “Anxiety and other negative emotions are known to be detri-mental to the body, especially to your cardiovascular and immune systems (心血管和免疫系统), and having an optimistic nature seems to protect against those effects. They exercise more, In addition, research shows that people who axe optimistic about their future behave differently. are less likely to smoke, and follow a better diet.And if they get sick, they’re more likely to actively participate in their treatment.I’ve seen that myself--I have back pain from arthritis, but I think my willingness to do whatever it takes has helped a lot.” 3) Not happy? Don’t worry. “Happiness is a feeling; optimism is a belief that aspects of your future will turn out well.Happiness can fluctuate (波动) a lot, but an optimistic disposition (性格) is usually pretty stable.If you’re not optimistic, you can try creating a ‘positive events’ log.Good filings happen to everyone, but pessimists often don’t take notice; spending a few minutes every day writing about at least three positive things may help you expect them more often. instead Or of trying to be optimistic, do what optimists do: Work hard to reach your goals. Each accomplishment should make it easier to be hopeful about the next one.” 67.The main finding of the study done by 8uzanae Segerstrom is ________. A.people will benefit from their positive attitudes towards life B.anyone who feels his health is better lives longer C.people who are optimistic about their future behave differently D.happiness usually results in a bright future 68.What conclusion did Suzanne Segerstrom draw from her studies on her fast-year law students? A.The better medical care they enjoy, the longer they will live. B.The younger they arc, the stronger they will be. C.The more optimistic they am, the less likely they will get ill. D.The better they feel, the more rapidly they will recover from illness. 69.We learn from the passage that optimistic people __________. A.are easy to give up smoking B.are willing to do whatever they are asked C.take an active part in all aspects D.tend to have a better life style 70.What are you advised to do according to the passage?

Industries that take raw materials from the natural environment are called extractive or primary industries.Canada has a wealth of natural resources.The extractive industries that have been developed to exploit these natural resources make an important contribution to the wealth of our economy.Without these extractive industries, and the money they bring from other countries, Canada’s economy could not exist in its present form.Yet only a small percentage of Canada’s labour force works in extractive industries.Extractive industries rely on labour-saving machines instead of human labour. Manufacturing industries process the products of extractive industries into finished products Manufacturing industries transform raw materials into many different forms to be used by consumers or by other companies.This processing may be done in one or more stages.For example, iron ore is transformed into steel in factories.This is called primary manufacturing. steel is then sent to companies for further processing into cars, mining equipment, The machines, nails, and other products-such as bicycle frames.This is called secondary manufacturing. Manufacturing industries are located in many towns and cities across Canada.Companies try to build their factories in densely populated areas because they want to near the people who buy their products.If they locate near their customers, then they save money on shipping costs.Manufacturing industries provide more jobs to Canadians than do extractive industries. the number of people employed in manufacturing is still small in comparison to the Yet third category, services.As with extractive industries, manufacturing process use many machines that require relatively few workers. Service industries provide services needed by the extractive and manufacturing industries, and by society in general. Without these services, society could not operate. majority of Canadian workers do not produce “goods” The in their jobs.Instead, they provide “services” for others.The range of services is very great and includes such things as retailing, office work, education, health care, communications, government, transportation, and personal services. Service industries in one form or another are spread over the entire country. every community there are stores, In banks, schools, police forces, and dozens of other services.The majority of service industries are found in town and cities because services are provided for people and there are many more people in urban areas, Canada’s economy depends upon the creation of jobs in all three types of industry. ● All (71) can be divided into three categories: extractive industries, Introduction manufacturing industries and service industries. ●Extractive industries arc also called primary industries, which are Extractive industries (72) with the exploitation of raw materials from the natural environment. ●Manufacturing industries (74) raw materials into products, which can be used by people or companies. ● Manufacturing industries can be grouped into primary manufacturing and (75) (73) industries manufacturing. ●Primary manufacturing (76) steel from iron ore for further processing. ●Secondary manufacturing will then use the steel to make products like cars, bikes, etc. for people to use. ●Service industries provide services the other two industries need.Without these services, our society cannot (77) . Service industries ●Service industries provide jobs for shop assistants, office (78) , teachers, doctors, and many others. ●Service industries mainly provide services for (79) .

I just thought she’d want to be a champion swimmer because she’s so good at it.” “It’s like anything else, dear,” said Mama.“No matter how good at it you are, if it stops being fun, you won’t want to do it anymore.” Papa put his head in his hands. “She must be really mad at me,” he mumbled.“Maybe I should say sorry to her.” Sister’s footsteps could be heard on the stairs.She came into the kitchen and looked hopefully up at her parents. “Honey,” said Mama with a smile, “your papa and I have decided that there’s no reason for you to be on the swimming team if you don’t want to.” Sister’s face lit up like a Christmas tree.“Yippee!” she cried. “And,” added Papa, “there’s no need for any more drills.I’m sure you’ll bring your grades back up all by yourself.” Sister ran to Papa and jumped into his arms.She gave him a big hug.“I’m going to go play cards with Lizzy!” she said.“See you later!” From the kitchen window, Mama and Papa watched their daughter run down the sunny road toward Lizzy’s house. “It’s good to see her happy again,” said Mama. “It sure is,” Papa agreed.“As for the swimming team, there’s always next year.” “If?” Mama prompted him. “Oh, right,” said Papa.“If she wants to.” Mama smiled.“At least you’re learning, dear,” she said.She kissed him. “Well, you know what they say,” Papa said.“Better late than never.” 56.Sister wanted off the swimming team because _____.

U.S. citizens are heading to Australia in small but growing numbers as near-10% unemployment at home drives more to look for jobs Down Under, where China’s thirst for iron ore (矿石) and energy is transforming the Pacific nation into an economic powerhouse. A bricklaying student from Silver Trowel, a leading provider of quality education and training in the building and construction industry, apprentices (当学徒) on a building project in Western Australia, where workers are in short supply. Daniel Davila, a 23-year-old floorer from Camarillo, California made the 14-hour move across the Pacific two years ago.He had been forced to take a job stocking shelves at a local grocery store for $8.90 an hour when he couldn’t get work fixing floors. On a good day in Australia, he now makes as much as 50 Australian dollars (US$50.21) an hour—about twice the amount for a typical flooring job in the U.S.He plans to start his own flooring business. “I can make what I did in a week in the U.S.in less than a day here,” said Mr.Davila, who lives near a mining boom town in Western Australia. Australian government figures show just under 7,000 Americans currently working on long-term visas, an 80% jump over the past five years.U.S.citizens are now the third-largest group applying for so-called 457 work visas, after British and Indian nationals.Americans with degrees in areas such as accounting or mine engineering, as well as other skilled workers, can obtain a nonrenewable(不可续期的) permit for as much as a three-year stay. After that, they can apply for the renewable 457, which allows up to a four-year stay.

The need for workers is particularly pressing in Western Australia.The mining state’s unemployment rate was 4.5% in November, below the national average of 5.2%.Drivers of heavy trucks can pull in six-figure salaries while experienced crane (起重机) operators can earn hundreds of thousands a year.Attracting skilled workers is a shift for Australia, which historically sent many of its most highly educated to the U.S.and Europe, according to migration data. 63._____, a growing number of Americans go to work in Australia.

A brake on global warming—for now One of the ocean’s most important climate functions is absorbing heat and carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the gases that cause global warming. Acting as a heat sponge (海绵), the oceans have absorbed huge amounts of heat and CO2 in the last forty years. Fujita explains that “the oceans are saving us from faster climate change—they are a big flywheel that delays rapid overheating of the earth, putting a brake on the climate system.” “That’s the good news,” he adds. “The bad news is that the oceans only slow the atmospheric warming. Once the oceans come to balance with a greenhouse-gas warmed earth, the extreme heat will remain in the atmosphere and things will get much hotter.” But where and how the oceans release this accumulated (积累) heat is uncertain. And as the ocean stores heat, fragile underwater ecosystems are struggling. The most recent scientific report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) also?notes with concern that the ocean is acidifying because of increased absorption of atmospheric CO2, and thus causing a threat for shell-forming species.Sharp increases in carbon dioxide levels will cause further acidification of the ocean. Currents distributing heat Another important role the oceans play is that of distributor.Oceans deliver heat and life-sustaining nutrients around the globe.Just as blood vessels bring oxygen and nutrients to cells in the human body, the ocean’s currents carry oxygen, nutrients and heat throughout the Earth. The ocean distributes 25 to 50 percent of the energy the planet receives from the sun.For example, the Gulf Stream carries heat across the Atlantic.This warm current gives northwestern Europe a milder climate than it would normally have so far north.A change to the ocean’s circulation (循环) patterns could throw Europe into a colder period, even as the rest of world experiences warmer temperatures. 67.We can infer from the passage that _____. A.the oceans cause global warming B.the oceans stop global warming C.the oceans release nutrientsand heat? D.the ocean ecosystems face more dangers 68.From the passage we can learn that the ocean’s currents _____. A.produce oxygen and nutrients everywhere B.absorb 25~50% of the energy from the sun

C.distribute heat and nutrients around D.change the ocean’s circulation patterns 69.Which of the following is NOT the result of the ocean absorbing heat and carbon dioxide? A.It causes further acidification. B.It affects shell-forming species. C.It makes the atmosphere hotter. D.It regulates the Earth’s climate. 70.This passage mainly talks about ______. A.the roles of oceans B.global warming C.ocean currents D.carbon dioxide 任务型阅读(共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分) Throw the bottles and boxes of drugs out of your house.A new theory suggests that medicine could be bad for your health, which should at least come as good news to people who cannot afford to buy expensive medicine.This new theory argues that healing is at our fingertips: we can be healthy by doing Yoga on a regular basis. Supporters of medical treatment argue that medicine should be trusted since it is effective and scientifically proven. They say that there is no need for spiritual methods such as Yoga. These waste our time, something which is quite precious in our material world.There is medicine that can kill our pain, x-rays that show us our bones or MRI that scans our brain for tumors (肿瘤). We must admit that these methods are very effective in the examples that they provide. However, there are some “everyday complaints” such as back pains, headaches, insomnia, which are treated currently with medicine.When you have a headache, you take an Aspirin; when you cannot sleep, you take Xanax without thinking of the side effects of these.When you use these pills for a long period, you become addicted to them; you cannot sleep without them.We pay huge amounts of money and become addicted instead of getting better.How about a safer and more economical way of healing? When doing Yoga, you do not need anything except your energy so it is very economical.Its popularity has spread particularly throughout America and Western Europe.In quantum (量子) physics, energy is recognized as the fundamental substance (物质) which the universe consists of.Yoga depends on the energy within our bodies.It is a simple and effective way of restoring the energy flow.There are no side effects and it is scientifically explained. Opponents of alternative healing methods also claim that serious illnesses such as HIV/AIDS and cancer cannot be treated without drugs.They think so because these patients spend the rest of their lives in the hospital taking medicine.How can Yoga make these people healthy again? It is very unfortunate that these patients have to live in the hospital losing their hair because of chemotherapy (化疗), losing weight because of the side effects of the medicine they take. Actually, it is common knowledge that except for when the cancer is recognized at an early stage, drugs also cannot treat AIDS or cancer.Most of the medicines these patients use are to ease their pain and their sufferings.Instead of drugs which are expensive and have many side effects, you can use your energy to overcome the hardships of life, find an emotional balance, leave the stress of everyday life and let go of the everyday worries.We should definitely start learning Yoga and avoid illnesses before it is too late.
