A In 1999, 11-year-old Kevin Stephan was a bat boy for his younger brother's Little League team in Lancaster, New York. It was an early evening in late July. The sun shone at an angle across the field. The game unfolding in baseball time. Kevin was standing on the grass away from the plate, where another youngster was warming up. Swinging his bat back and forth, giving it all the power an elementary school kid could gather. The boy brought the bat back hard and hit Kevin square in the chest. His heart stopped. When Kevin fell to the ground, the mother of one of the players rushed out of the stands to his aid. Penny Brown hadn't planned to be there that day, but at the last minute, her shift at the hospital had been changed, and she was given the night off. Penny bent over the unconscious boy, his face already starting to turn blue, and administered CPR, breathing into his mouth and administering chest press. And he came back. It was a good thing, for a good kid. Kevin wasn't just a volunteer for his brother's baseball team --- he was a Boy Scout, one who went on to achieve Scouting's highest rank, Eagle. He became a volunteer junior firefighter, learning some of the emergency first-aid techniques that had saved his life. He studied hard in school and was saving money for college by working as a dishwasher in a local restaurant. He liked the people, but the work could be hard and pretty routine. Until the afternoon of January 27, 2006. Kevin, now 17, was working in the kitchen when he heard people screaming, customers in 共 4 页
confusion, employees rushing toward a table. He hustled into the main room and saw a woman there, her face turning blue, her hands at her throat. She was choking. Quickly Kevin stepped behind her, wrapped his arms around her and clasped his hands. Then, using skills he'd first learned in Scouts, he pulled suddenly inward and up, once, twice, administering the Heimlich maneuver. The food that was trapped in the woman's throat was freed. The color began to return to her face. "The food was stuck. I couldn't breathe," she said. She thought she was dying. "I was very frightened.” Guess who the woman was ? Penny Brown 36.

Long ago and far away, she was an unnamed little princess in a little story called the “The Frog Prince”. She and her friend lived in a very small, mostly forgotten corner of the fairy tale universe. Many years passed. And then one day, through the magical powers of Disney animation (动画) and marketing, the forgotten little princess was changed into Tiana, a beautiful black princess from New Orleans. She became the star of The Princess and the Frog, a movie set for release in November 25. In the 72 years since Walt Disney’s Snow White won over audiences as “the fairest of them all”, there have only been eight Disney princesses. Through these movies and a line of toys, the Disney princesses have become global icons(偶像) of childhood. Sleeping Beauty awakened by a kiss, Cinderella’s clock striking midnight, Belle dancing in the Beast’s castle – these have become heroines whom parents feel safe to let their young girls copy and idealize (视作偶像). And while 第 3 页
Disney has brought us non-white princesses before (see Mulan, Pocahontas), Tiana is the first black one. The implied (暗含的) message of Tiana, that black American girls can be as elegant as Snow White herself, is a first for American culture, according to scholars and cultural historians. Her appearance this holiday season, coming on the heels of Michelle Osama’s emergence as the nation’s first lady, the Obama girls in the White House and the first line of Barbie dolls modeled on black women, will crown an extraordinary year for African American women. Moreover, this princess’s dream is not just to marry a prince. In the film, Tiana is a young waitress and talented chef who dreams of owning her own restaurant. She eventually kisses a frog and is herself changed into one. She must journey into the dark river to get a magical cure from an evil queen. The message that Tiana learns in the film is that balance is important in life. She needs both love and a career to find happiness. 40. Tiana is different from other Disney’s Royal Ladies in that she is the first ______. A. princess that is changed from a frog B. non-American prince C. black prince D. princess well received by audience 41. All of the following Disney princesses are white EXCEPT ______. A. Sleeping Beauty B. Belle C. Cinderella D. Pocahontas 42.Tiana's appearance as a Disney princess can be attributed to(归于)______. A. the growing importance of African-Americans in the US B. the change in audience taste C. Disney's lack of good stories D. the beauty and independence of African American women 43. The story tells us that The Princess and the Frog says ______. A. love is the most important thing in our life B. there is a price to pay for love and happiness C. happiness is about achievement as much as finding love D. skin color is no longer a concern in America

White-collar workers going to great lengths for stress relief A soldier of the South Korean special attack corps paints his eyes during a friendly Teakwood match at a South Korean Army Base in Pochon, north of Seoul. Stressed out white-collar workers are scaling（攀登） skyscrapers, camping out on rooftops, smashing up restaurants, pretending to be children and even visiting cemeteries in a bid to relieve the pressure of modern life. As the country's economy continues to steam ahead, once popular forms of entertainment, such as karaoke, card games and even boxing bars, appear to be losing their appeal. Consider the members of Shanghai's Cat Rain club. By day, this group of young women works executive jobs, but by night they climb buildings so they can spend the night on the roof. "It's a good way to release our pressure. You feel relaxed when you're sitting on the roof, looking up to the sky and chatting with intimate（亲密的）friends," said Gong Ying, 25. The stress of work is not just limited to people in Shanghai. A recently opened restaurant in Beijing encourages customers to smash plates - as long as they are willing to pay to replace them. Though there has been some debate about the extravagance（奢侈）of such services, some 共 4 页
psychologists say the activity reflects the desire of some white-collar workers to vent their angst. Some workers even appear eager to return to their childhoods. This May, hundreds of people took part in a festival in which adults pretended to be children. It was an adults-only event, and participants could read comics and eat sweets all day. Scenic places such as parks and rivers can also help people relax and put things in perspective. But a cemetery? Cemetery companies in Shanghai organized visits to local graveyards for stressed-out workers in March. The participants were taken to quiet spots in the cemetery where they could contemplate （考虑、 打算）life and their futures. Roof-camper Chen Bin, an IT marketing professional, said she had camped out on a rooftop about 30 times. When she's not sleeping out under the stars, she also has several other adrenalin-fueled interests, such as downhill racing and paragliding. "Pressure may bring us distress, but it doesn't mean we can't find ways out," Chen says. "Life should be imaginative
