physician at Penn State University in Eric Pennsylvania. That’s because some coals are made 43 burning wood chips. Wood has two
properties（特性）for fire-walking, explains Hall. First, wood is an insulator（绝缘体）--it doesn’t __45 heat very well. “It 46 _ time for heat to travel 47 the wood to your feet.” Hall says. If the performer walked across red-hot metal 48 , that would truly be 49 , because metal conducts, or transmits, heat very well. The metal would 50 burn a performer’s feet. Second, wood has a low specific heat-- it doesn’t take much heat to 51 its temperature. Heat is a form of 52 . Temperature is a 53 of heat, in units of degrees.

Sure we can guarantee it. Shadow Ridge Summer Camps offer so many exciting things for campers to do. Unlike other camp programs that include horses as a small part of their program, at Shadow Ridge horses ARE the program ! We are 100% horse from stable （马厩） management, nature walks, and track rides to bedroom furnishings. Horses help us achieve many of our aims. Girls can learn to develop responsibility, self-confidence and personal connections in their lives while having fun. Using horses as a wonderful tool for education, our camps offer an interesting place for growth and learning:
Imagine each girl having her very own horse to spend time with and a best friend to love and take care of. Each camper is responsible for a horse for the week. Our riding program provides a lot of riding and lesson time. Campers will learn how to take care of the horse and the tack（马具）, as well as how to ride. Days are filled with horse-related activities to strengthen the connection between each girl and horse, as the girls learn to work safely around the horses. At Shadow Ridge we try to create a loving, caring family atmosphere for our campers. We have “The Bunkhouse” girls）, the “Wranglers Roost” girls）, and “The Hideout” （4 （4 （2 girls）in our comfortable 177-year-old farm house. All meals are home cooked, offering delicious and healthy food for the hungry rider. Our excellent activities create personalized memories of your child’s vacation. Each child will receive a camp T-shirt and a photo album （usually 300-500 pictures） of their stay at camp. Our camps are offered during June, July and August 2013, for small groups of girls aged 13-16 years, not only from Canada but also other parts of the world. We will send you full program descriptions at your request. 56. What is the main purpose of the passage? A. To attract people to the camps. B. To talk about camping experiences. C. To describe the programs of the camps. D. To explain the aims of the camps. 57. What do we know about the camp programs at Shadow Ridge? A. Campers are required to wear camp T-shirts. B. Horses play a central role in the activities. C. Campers learn to cook food for themselves. D. Horse lessons are offered all the year round. 58. The programs at Shadow Ridge mainly aim to help people ________. A. understand horses better B. enjoy a family atmosphere C. have fun above other things D. achieve an educational purpose 59. The passage is written mainly for ________. A. horse riders B. teenage girls C. Canadian parents D. international travelers B It can be hard to meet people from another culture. From the beginning, people may send the wrong signal（信号）. Or they may pay no attention to signals from another person who is trying to develop a relationship. Different cultures emphasize （强调） importance of relationship building to a greater or the lesser degree. For example, business in some countries is not possible until there is a relationship of trust. Even with people at work, it is necessary to spend a lot of time in “small talk”, usually over a glass of tea, before they do any job. In many European countries--like the UK or France—people find it easier to build up a lasting working relationship at restaurants or cafes rather than at the office. Talk and silence may also be different in some cultures. I once made a speech in Thailand. I had expected my speech to be a success and start a lively discussion; instead there was an uncomfortable silence. The people present just stared at me and smiled. After getting to know their ways better, I realized that they thought I was talking too much. In my own culture, we express meaning mainly through words, but people there sometimes feel too many words are unnecessary. Even within Northern Europe, cultural differences can cause serious problems. Certainly,
English and German cultures share similar values; however, Germans prefer to get down to business more quickly. We think that they are rude. In fact, this is just because one culture starts discussions and makes decisions more quickly. People from different parts of the world have different values, and sometimes these values are quite against each other. However, if we can understand them better, a multicultural environment（多元文化环境）will offer a wonderful chance for us to learn from each other. 60. In some countries, eating together at restaurants may make it easier for people to ________. A. keep each other company B. share the same Culture C. get to know each other D. develop closer relations 61. The author mentions his experience in Thailand to show that _________. A. even talk and silence can be culturally different B. too many words are of no use C. people from Thailand are quiet and shy by nature D. the English prefer to make long speeches 62. According to the text, how can people from different cultures understand each other better? A. By sharing different ways of life. B. By recognizing different values. C. By accepting different habits. D. By speaking each other’s languages. 63. What would be the best title for the text? A. Multicultural Environment. B. How to Understand Each Other. C. Cross-Cultural Differences. D. How to Build Up a Relationship. C When you don’t have anything planned for the day or it’s rainy outside and your children are stuck in the house, why not sit around and tell them riddles? Telling riddles will make your family laugh and sometimes even scratch their heads, trying to figure out what the answer is. Riddles have been a pastime for centuries. Not only have riddles been something for passing the time, but they have also been used to pass on secret information during the Second World War. Even the ancient Greeks used riddles. They would tell riddles at parties and whoever was the first to get them right would receive prize. Most riddles use words that have double meanings or share the same sound like “hear” and “here”. So in order to get the riddle, you will have to do some creative thinking and think of all the possibilities of different words. The difficulty of figuring out the riddle is based on the riddle itself. The riddle has to provide you with enough clues to come to the right answer, but that doesn’t mean that the clues have to be easy. If you are looking to tell riddles but don’t know any, you can look online and you will find a large number of sites that will have hundreds of different riddles to choose from. If you would like to look somewhere else then you could look at your local bookstore, where you will be able to find many different books with thousands of riddles to choose from. You can even find websites and books that will tell you how to write your own riddles. After you have found some resources that have different riddles, you will need to read through them to find the right ones for you and your family: You will also need to make sure that your kids will have a chance to figure out the answers. So take your time and choose the fight family riddles to tell. 64. What is the author’s main purpose in writing the text?
A. To recommend an interesting family activity. B. To stress the importance of family activities. C. To encourage children to read more books. D. To introduce the history of riddles. 65. From the text we know that riddles _______. A. do not have enough clues B. have a very long history C. were used in World War One D. were first used in ancient Rome 66.

A. news story B. speech C. travel guide D. advertisement E March 22, 20II---Most restaurants in the United States offer their customers a glass of tap water at no charge with their meal, but this week many restaurants are asking dinners to pay a dollar, or more, for a glass of water. Cards on their tables explain that this small amount helps bring clean water to children around the world. It’s called the UNICEF Tap Project. “UNICEF’s Tap Project is really all about bringing attention to the fact that over 900 million people around the globe do not have access to good, clean, healthy drinking water,” says Cary Stem, who heads the US Fund for UNICEF. She adds that water-borne illness is the second-highest cause of preventable childhood death in the world. “Each and every day approximately 4,100 children die just because they don’t have that access - 4,100 every single day.” The public service campaign encourages people to help change that statistic with a simple, affordable action: paying a dollar to get a glass of tap water at a restaurant. “One dollar buys enough good, clean water for a child for 40 days,” Stem says. “The tap project has expanded since it began five years ago with 300 restaurants in New York City. This year, Stem says, about 3,000 restaurants across the country are participating in the campaign. We raised about $2.5 million over the last five years of this campaign,” says Stem. “Last year, we raised over $1 million for the first time. This year we’re hoping to top that.” Stem credits the continued success of the campaign to an army of volunteers who support the tap project and raise money in their communities. The UNICEF Tap Project is promoting its efforts with a simple motto: when you take water, give water. Currently, UNICEF works in more than 100 countries around the world to improve access to safe water and sanitation facilities in schools and communities. Stem hopes that, by participating in the project, more Americans will realize that what they often take for granted is a precious and scarce resource in many other parts of the world. 72. Restaurants began to charge for tap water to _______. A. increase their profit B. urge customers to save water C. raise people’s awareness of the world water problem D. collect money for those without access to safe water 73. We can learn from the text that the Tap Project ________.
A. began in New York City B. was started by volunteers C. is hoping to collect $2.5 million this year D. provides help for 1,000 countries in the world 74. It can be learned that _______. A. the Tap Project began in 2006 B. America suffers a serious problem C. 4,100 children die of water pollution every year D. water-borne illnesses are the biggest killer of children 75. How does Cary Stem feel about the work of the Tap Project? A. Concerned B. Hopeful C. Disappointed D. Angry 第二节 （共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） A hobby is an investment of time. It also can be an investment of money and commitment. Many people choose to develop more than one type of hobby. 76 When it comes to choosing the hobby, consider the following factors. Hobbies are usually an activity of some sort that brings out a certain skill that you have. When you have a talent like painting or woodworking, it can be easy to determine which hobby suits your skill. 77 Skill can be developed and challenged as you go along. It is not a necessary requirement. A hobby is fitting because you love it, not because you’re a professional at it. Some people particularly enjoy taking part in hobbies that they can do in a group with others. It can be a lot more fun to join a hobby group than to sit alone in your basement. 78 It’s important to share interests and network with other hobby enthusiasts that do what you do. Hobbies are generally an activity that you undertake because of the joy it brings you. Of course many people have discovered the joy that also comes with a hobby that earns you a living. __79 Just make sure you make the choice that fits your lifestyle and personal preference. 80 But most of the skilled hobbies like art, building or writing have a series of lessons or tutorials that you can take to further your skills. In some cases it’s a really good idea to take lessons, especially if you are clueless as to where or how to begin. Step by step books for most hobbies can often be found in bookstores as well. A. However, hobbies don’t have to be skill related. B. Most hobbies can easily be done within your own home, at your leisure. C. Look one up or start your own. D. Read hobby books to learn more about your chosen hobby! E. Make a list of things that you enjoy or don’t know about. F. It can be a necessary part of selecting the hobby that is right for you. G. Whether it’s full time, part time or not at all, you must decide if making money you’re your hobby applies to you.

One possible version
New Year’s Day is drawing near and as usual many of my classmates begin to send paper cards to each other, friends and family. I think it is really a waste of money and it can also cause pollution. So I suggest using e-cards instead of paper-cards. First, it is very convenient to send e-cards. It just takes a click and our friends will receive them in one or two seconds. Second, free e-cards can help us save money. Third, with sound and animation, e-cards are more interesting and lively than paper cards. Last but not least, e-cards are environmentally friendly as no real materials are used. Since they have so many advantages, why not have a try?
