I first 36 a boy under the tree on the first day of camp. His obvious 37 and shyness made him appear weak and lonely. Nearby, 200 38 campers were playing and joking, but the boy seemed to want to be anywhere 39 where he was. I was instructed to care more about campers who might feel 40 . So I 41 him and said, “Hi, I?m Kevin. It?s nice to meet you. How are you?” 42 a shaky voice he 43 answered, “Okay, I guess.” I calmly asked him to join in the activities and 44 some new people. He quietly replied, “No, this is not really my thing.” I could 45 that this whole experience was 46 to him. But I somehow knew it wouldn?t be right to 47 him, either. It was going to take more time and 48 .
The next day, I was leading camp songs for the campers. They eagerly participated. But the boy was just sitting alone, 49 out the window. That evening at our nightly staff meeting, I made my 50 about him known. I asked them to pay special attention and spend time with him 51 they could. The days flew by fast. When the “last dance” came, surprisingly, the boy from under the tree was now a shirtless dancing 52 . He owned the dance floor 53 meaningful time with others. I couldn?t? believe it was him. In that instant, I realized how easy it is to give a bit of 54 every day. You may never know how much each gesture may mean to someone else.

Scott Fitzgerald, born on September 24, 1896, an American novelist, was once a student of St. Paul Academy, the Newman School and attended Princeton University for a short while. In 1917 he joined the army and was posted in Alabama, where he met his future wife Zelda Sayre. Then he had to make some money to impress her. His life with her was full of great happiness, as he wrote in his diary: “My own happiness in the past often approached such joy that I could not
share it even with the person dearest to me but had to walk it away in quiet streets and take down parts of it in my diary.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
This side of paradise, his first novel, was published in 1920. Encouraged by its success, Fitzgerald began to devote more time to his writing. Then he continued with the novel The Beautiful and Damned (1922), a collection of short stories Tales of the Jazz Age (1922), and a play The Vegetable (1923). But his greatest success was The Great Gatsby, published in 1925, which quick brought him praise from the literary world. Yet it failed to give him the needed financial security. Then, in 1926, he published another collection of short stories All the Sad Young Men. However, Fitzgerald?s problems with his wife Zelda affected his writing. During the 1920s he tried to reorder his life, but failed. By 1930, his wife had her first breakdown and went to a Swiss clinic. During this period he completed novels Tender Is the Night in 1934 and The Love of the Last Tycoon in 1940. While his wife was in hospital in the United States, he got totally addicted to alcohol. Sheila Graham, his dear friend, helped him fight his alcoholism. 56. How many novels written by Fitzgerald are mentioned in the passage? A. 5. B. 6. C. 7. D. 8. 57. Which of the following is the correct order to describe Fitzgerald?s life according to the passage? a. He became addicted to drinking. b. He studied at St. Paul Academy. c. He published his first novel This Side of Paradise. d. The Great Gatsby won high praise. e. He failed to reorder his life. f. He joined the army and met Zelda. A. f-c-e-a-b-d B. b-e-a-f-c-d C. b-f-c-d-e-a D. f-d-e-c-b-a 58. We can infer from the passage that Fitzgerald _____. A. had made some money when he met Zelda in Alabama. B. was well educated and well off before he served in the army C. helped his friend get rid of drinking while his wife was in hospital D. would have completed more works if his wife hadn?t broken down 59. The passage is probably followed by a concluding paragraph about _____. A. Zelda?s personal life B. Zelda?s illness and treatment C. Fitzgerald?s friendship with Graham D. Fitzgerald?s contributions to the literary world B Food sometimes gets poisoned with harmful things. A person who eats such food can get an illness called food poisoning. Food poisoning is usually not serious, but some types are deadly. The symptoms of food poisoning usually begin within hours of eating the poisoned food. Fever
is one of the most common symptoms. Certain microorganisms（微生物）cause most types of food poisoning. Bacteria and other microorganisms can poison eggs, meat, vegetables, and many other foods. After entering the body, these tiny living things release poisons that make people sick. Some chemicals can also cause food poisoning. They are often added to food while it is being grown, processed, or prepared. For example, many farmers spray chemicals on crops to kill weeds and insects. Some people may have a bad reaction to those chemicals when they eat the crops. Some plants and animals contain natural poisons that are harmful to people. These include certain kinds of seafood, grains, nuts, seeds, beans, and mushrooms. When people handle food properly, the risk of food poisoning is very small. Microorganisms multiply rapidly in dirty places and in warm temperatures. This means that people should never touch food with dirty hands or put food on unwashed surfaces. Food should be kept in a refrigerator to stop microorganisms from growing. Meat needs to be cooked thoroughly to kill any dangerous microorganisms. People should also wash food covered with chemicals before eating it. Finally, people should not eat wild mushrooms or other foods that grow in the wild. Some of these foods may contain natural materials that are poisonous to humans. In addition, some types of fish can be poisonous. Most people recover from food poisoning after a few days of resting and drinking extra water. If people eat natural poisons, they must go to the hospital right away to have their stomachs emptied. 60. Which of the following statements is NOT true? A. Food poisoning means death. B. Food poisoning can be serious. C. Food poisoning comes in varieties. D. Food when poisoned can make people sick. 61. We know from the passage that the symptoms of food poisoning . A. can be noticed within hours B. can be ignored C. are too common to be noted D. are always accompanied by a fever 62. Food poisoning can be caused by all the following EXCEPT . A. some chemicals B. low temperatures C. some tiny living things D. certain natural materials 63. From Paragraph 5,we can learn that . A. mushrooms should not be eaten B. vegetables are safer than meat and seafood C. natural poisons are more dangerous than chemicals D. different types of food should be handled differently 64. It can be inferred from the passage that . A. natural materials are safe in food processing B. food poisoning can be kept under control C. chemicals are needed in food processing
D. food poisoning is out of control C Ask Dr ? Jeffers This month Dr. Jeffers is answering questions about the human brain and how it works.
Dear Dr. Jeffers, One of my colleagues, Felix Moeller, told me that scientists are learning to use computer to ?read minds?. Is there any truth to this story？ —Jane Leon, New York, USA Dear Ms. Leon, Well, a lot of research is being conducted in this area, but so far, the brain scanning equipment and corresponding computer programs haven?t been able to actually read thoughts. In one experiment, test subjects（受试者）were connected to scanning equipment and shown two numbers on a screen. They were then asked to choose between adding or subtracting 减） two （ the numbers. Using this method, researchers were able to follow brain processes and make the correct assumptions 假设） percent of the time. It?s not quite mind reading, but it?s certainly a （ 70 first step. —Dr. J. Dear Dr. Jeffers, My three-year-old son loves it when I dig my fingers into his sides and tickle（胳肢）him until he laughs uncontrollably. The other day I noticed him trying to tickle himself but he couldn?t do it. Why not? —Glenn Lewis, Vancouver, Canada Dear Mr. Lewis, It?s because of how the brain works. The brain is trained to know what to pay attention to and what to ignore. It causes us to ignore physical feelings we expect to happen, but it causes a mild panic reaction when there is an unexpected feeling. For example, you don?t notice how your shoulder feels while you?re walking down the street. But if someone comes up behind you and touches you lightly on the shoulder, you may jump in fear. It?s that unexpected part that causes the tickle reaction. —Dr. J. 65. What can we learn from the answer to the first question? A. Some equipment is able to read human minds. B. Test subjects have been used to make decisions. C. Some progress has been made in mind reading. D. Computer programs can copy brain processes. 66. People laugh when tickled by others because the feeling is _____. A. expected B. unexpected C. comfortable D. uncomfortable 67. According to the text, Jeffers is probably _____. A. a computer programmer B. a medical doctor C. a test subject D. a human brain expert D The American newspaper has been around for about three hundred years. In 1721, the printer James Franklin. Benjamin's older brother, started the New England Courant, and that was
what we might recognize today as a real newspaper. He filled his paper with stories of adventure, articles on art, on famous people, and on all sorts of political subjects. Three centuries after the appearance of Franklin's Courant, few believe that newspapers in their present printed form will remain alive for long. Newspaper companies are losing readers, advertisers, market value, and, in some cases, their sense of purpose at a speed that would not have been imaginable just several years ago. The chief editor of the Times said recently, "At places where they gather, editors ask one another, 'How are you?', as if they have just come out of the hospital or a lost law case. ” An article about the newspaper appeared on the website of the Guardian, under the headline “NOT DEAD YET.” Perhaps not, but the rise of the Internet, which has made the daily newspaper look slow and out of step with the world, has brought about a real sense of death. Some American newspapers have lost 42% of their market value in the past thee years. The New York Times Company has seen its stock（股票）drop by 54% since the end of 2004, with much of the loss coming in the past year. A manager at Deutsche Bank suggested that stock-holders sell off their Times stock The Washington Post Company has prevented the trouble only by changing part of its business to education; its testing and test-preparation service now brings in at least half the company's income. 68. What can we learn about the New England Courant? A. It is mainly about the stock market. B. It carries articles by political leaders. C. It remains a successful newspaper in America. D. It marks the beginning of the American newspaper. 69. What can we infer about the newspaper editors? A. They often accept readers? suggestions. B. They care a lot about each other's health. C. They stop doing business with advertisers. D. They face great difficulties in their business. 70. Which of the following found a new way for its development? A. The Guardian. B. The Washington Post. C. The New York Times. D. New England Courant. 71. How does the author seem to feel about the future of newspapers? A. Worried. B. Hopeful. C. Satisfied. D. Surprised. E Years ago, when I started looking for my first job, wise advisers said, “Barbara, be enthusiastic! Enthusiasm will take you further than any amount of experience.” How right they were! “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm,” wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is the paste that helps you hang on there when the going gets tough. It is the inner voice that whispers, “I can do it!” when others shout, “No, you can?t!” It took years and years for the early work of Barbara Mc Clintock, a geneticist (遗传学家) who won the 1983 Nobel Prize in
medicine, to be generally accepted. Yet she didn?t let up on (放松) her experiments. Work was such a deep pleasure for her that she never thought of stopping. We are all born with wide-eyed, enthusiastic wonder and it is this childlike wonder that gives enthusiastic people such youthful air, whatever their age. At 90, cellist (大提琴家) Pablo Casals would start his day by playing Bach. As the music flowed through his fingers, his bent shoulders would straighten and joy would reappear in his eyes. As author and poet Samuel once wrote, “Years make the skin old, but to give up enthusiasm makes the soul old.” Enthusiastic people also love what they do, regardless of money, title or power. Patricia Mcllrath, retired director of the Missouri Repertory Theater in Kansas City, was once asked where she got her enthusiasm. She replied, “My father, a lawyer, long ago told me, I never made a penny until I stopped working for money.” If we cannot do what we love as a fulltime career, we can do it as a hobby. Elizabeth Layton of Wellsville, Kan, was 68 before she began to draw. This activity ended her sadness that had troubled her for at least 30 years, and the quality of her work led one critic to say, “I am persuaded to call Layton a genius.” We can?t afford to waste tears on “might-have-beens”. We need to turn the tears into sweat as we go after “what-can-be”. We need to live each moment whole-heartedly, with all our senses ---- finding pleasure in the sweet smell of a backyard garden, the simple picture of a six-year-old, and the beauty of a rainbow. 72. The passage mainly shows us ____. A. enthusiasm leads to everything B. we can do nothing without enthusiasm C. enthusiasm makes us experience more life D. enthusiasm helps us to succeed to a greater degree 73. From the example of the Nobel Prize winner Barbara Mc Clitock, we may find ____. A. enthusiasm can encourage us in difficult times B. enthusiastic people always get a deep pleasure from work C. you can?t make any achievement if you have no enthusiasm D. enthusiastic people are sure to gain great fame in the end 74. The underlined sentence in Paragraph 3 suggests _____. A. time and tide wait for no man B. we grow old as time goes on C. people feel young with enthusiasm D. our soul becomes old with enthusiasm 75. The main idea of the last paragraph is ____. A. enthusiasm can give us pleasure, though we have to sweat B. we should try heart and soul to win what we want C. we have not enough money to buy what we need D. enthusiasm with sweat is what we need

Their opinions vary from person to person. 80 percent of the students find it necessary for students to take first aid courses because nobody can foresee what will happen. They believed strongly that only if we take the courses can we save the lives when accidents happen. However still some students, about 20 percent, don?t think so. They considered it to be unnecessary. In their opinion, it is convenient to see a doctor nowadays even if there is an accident. What?s more, they can?t spare time to take first aid courses with such heavy study burden on them. As for me, I am for the point of view of those who think the courses are necessary. I suggest that every one of us should take this kind of courses seriously. There is no doubt that not only can we save ourselves but also help others out of danger by learning the knowledge of first aid. In a word, a good knowledge of first aid makes a great difference.
