C. Taxes, Taxes and More Taxes Americans often say that there are only two things a person can be sure of in life: death and taxes. Americans do not have a corner on the “death” market, but many people feel that the United States leads the world with the worst taxes. Taxes consist of the money which people pay to support their government. There are generally three levels of government in the United States: federal (联邦), state, and city; therefore, there are three types of taxes. Salaried people who earn more than a few thousand dollars must pay a certain percentage of their salaries to the federal government. The percentage varies (变化) form person to person. It depends on their salaries. The federal government has a graduated income tax, that is, the percentage of the tax (14 to 70 percent) increases as a person?s income increases. With the high cost of taxes people are not very happy on April 15, when the federal taxes are due. The second tax is for the state government: New York, California, North Dakota, or any of the other forty-seven states. Some states have an income tax similar to that of the federal government. Of course, the percentage for the state tax is lower. Other states have a sales tax, which is a percentage charged to any item(项目) which you buy in that state. For example, a person might want to buy a packet of cigarettes for twenty -five cents. If there is a sales tax of eight percent in that state, then the cost of the cigarettes is twenty-seven cents. This figure includes the sales tax. Some states use income tax in addition to sales tax to raise their revenues (财政收 入) . The state tax laws are diverse (多样的) and confusing. The third tax is for the city. This tax comes in two forms: property tax (people who own a home have to pay taxes on it) and excise tax（特许权税）, which is charged on cars in a city. The cities use these funds (资金) for education, police and fire departments, public works and municipal (市政的) buildings.
Since Americans pay such high taxes, they often feel that they are working one day each week just to pay their taxes. People always complain about taxes. They often protest that the government uses their tax dollars in the wrong way. They say that it spends too much on useless and impractical programs. Although Americans have different views on many issues, they tend to agree on one subject: taxes are too high. 64. How do you understand the sentence “Americans do not have a corner on the ?death? market”? A. It means that Americans, just like all other people, must die. B. It means that Americans do not have a secret place to keep from death in their life. C. It means that Americans are not good at doing business in the death market. D. It means that there is no such place as a death market in the U. S . 65. Why should the American people usually pay three types of taxes? A. There are three levels of government—federal, state and city—to support the United States. B. There are three kinds of taxes to pay. They are graduated income tax, sales tax and property tax. C. They earn different salaries: high, middle, and low. D. Tax laws in different states are different. 66. What does the title “Taxes, Taxes, and More Taxes” imply? A. Americans are not satisfied with the three types of taxes. B. The three levels of government do not use the taxes in a right way. C. Americans complain that taxes are too high. D. Americans? taxes are diverse and confusing.
D. Breathe, wave and smile. Along with more than 300 other seniors, I marched into the stadium on the afternoon of May 10. The audience burst into deafening cheers. The huge stadium shook with all the whistling and clapping. It was as if a Hollywood superstar had walked on stage. And indeed, every single senior that day was a star of the moment. Each deserved it. The seniors had been preparing for four years for this once-in-a-lifetime moment—the commencement. Seated, I waited anxiously for the opening address. As a foreign exchange student, I was not able to receive a diploma. However, I still had the wonderful feeling of being part of things. Like the other graduates, I was dressed in marron cap and gown(方帽长袍). Our principal, Mr. Glover, delivered a short, warm greeting. The US national anthem followed and then, hands on chests, a solemn Pledge of Allegiance(对美国的忠孝宣誓). Students who had excelled academically gave farewell speeches. The tears in some eyes convinced me that many had deep feelings about the occasion. It was as the class motto says, “Life brings us tears, smiles and memories. The tears dry; the smiles fade; but the memories last forever.” Then came the core (核心) of the commencement. Hundreds of names were announced. Each graduate walked across the stage to receive his or her diploma from the principal. From the different cheers each graduate got, we had the funny sense that it was a kind of competition of who could cheer the loudest.
To be honest, the presentation of diplomas got boring. A girl sitting next to me even started yawning. But it wasn’t boring for those receiving the diploma: they would treasure the moment the principal placed the sacred brown document in their hands for the rest of their lives. A new page in the book of that person’s life had turned. They were glimpsing their futures: futures of challenge, hardship, perhaps loneliness too, which would take all of their courage. 67. What’s the article mainly about? A. An American high school’s graduation ceremony. B. The opening ceremony of a sports meeting. C. A presentation of college diplomas. D. A US college’s farewell party. 68. Which of the following statements about the author is FALSE? A. She was one of the graduates. B. She was a foreign exchange student. C. She was excited to receive her diploma. D. She felt it great to be at the ceremony. 69. The right order of the following events is_____________. a. Diplomas were presented to graduates. b. Students gave farewell speeches. c. The US national anthem was played. d. The principal gave a short, warm speech. e. Seniors went into the stadium. A. b,c,a,d,e B. c,d,b,e,a C. d,b,e,a,c D. e,d,c,b,a 70. From the text, we can conclude that_______. A. a diploma ensures a good job B. a diploma guarantees a bright future C. the commencement symbolizes the beginning of a new stage in life D. everyone felt excited at the presentation of the diploma

Left in （ a bank, it will hardly keep its value, however high the interest rate. Only a brave man, or a very rich one, dares to buy and sell on the Stock Market（股票市场）. Today it seems that one of the best ways to protect your savings, and even increase your wealth is to buy beautiful objects from the past. Here I am going to offer some advice on collecting antique clocks, which I personally consider are among the most interesting of antiques (古董). I sometimes wonder what a being from another planet might report back about our way of life. “The planet Earth is ruled by a mysterious creature that sits or stands in a room and makes a strange ticking sound. It has a face with twelve black marks and two hands. Men can do nothing without its permission, and it fastens its young round people’s wrists so that everywhere men go they are still under its control. This creature is the real master of Earth and men are its slaves.” Whether or not we are slaves of time today depends on our culture and personality, but it is believed that many years ago kings kept special slaves to tell the time. Certain men were very clever at measuring the time of day according to the beating of their own hearts. They were made to stand in a fixed place and every hour or so would shout the time. So it seems that the first clocks were human beings. However, men quickly found more convenient and reliable ways of telling the time. They learned to use the shadows cast by the sun. They marked the hours on candles, used sand in hour-glasses（沙漏）, and invented water-clocks. Indeed, any serious student of antique should spend as much time as possible visiting palaces, stately homes (豪华古宅) and museums to see some of the finest examples of clocks from the past. Antique clocks could be very expensive, but one of the joys of collecting clocks is that it is still possible to find quite cheap ones for your own home. After all, if you are going to be ruled by time, why not invest in an antique clock and perhaps make a future profit?
Title: What to invest in?
To (81)________ with inflation, people should not deposit money in banks. (82) ______, they should invest. By doing so, they can (83)_________ the value of their savings and even (84) ______ their wealth.

I’m very glad to stand here and give you a short speech. Today my topic is about “Obama”, the 44th president of the USA. Barack Obama, was born in Hawaii on August 4, 1961. Unfortunately, his parents got divorced when he was only two years old. So he was brought up by his single mother, who had a great influence on him. Although living a hard life, he was strict with himself and dreamed of becoming a president. In 1998, he was admitted into Harvard Law School, where he gained his doctor’s degree in 1991. After graduation, he worked as a lawyer, a lecturer and then took up politics in 1997, after which time his political career began to take off. On November 4, 2008, Barack Obama became the first black president in American history. It is obvious that we can learn a lot from Obama’s success.
