Many of us grow up dreaming of becoming an astronaut. Ever wonder what it takes to be one? Take NASA for example. In order to catch NASA’s eye, would-be astronauts must not only stand out in required skills and pass physical and psychological exams, but also find unique ways to __41__ themselves from the harsh competition. NASA’s requirements for becoming an astronaut have changed over the years. Originally, it __42__ candidates with a military flight background, with at least 1,000 hours spent in command of a jet aircraft. In 1978, however, NASA __43__ its focus to a more varied group of astronauts: scientists and engineers with at least three years of experience in theirrespective fields. During the years of shuttle missions, everyone had a __44__: some would focus on robotics, others on spacewalks or maintenance. To work on the space station, astronauts must be able to perform all tasks, which encourage __45__ to acquire different experiences. Jeanette Epps, an astronaut, studied aerospace engineering, worked at Ford Motor Company and took a job with the CIA before joining NASA. She says astronauts’ varied backgrounds __46__ to their ability to adapt and learn anything quickly. After ensuring that candidates are U.S. citizens and that they satisfy __47__ education and experience requirements, the selection committee enters a gray area. ―We’re not really looking for one thing, just a good mix of things,‖ said Duane Ross, the manager for astronaut candidate selection and training. To the committee, candidates who take on __48__ outside of the workplace demonstrate curiosity and energy. Many astronauts who don’t have a military background do hold a(n) __49__ piloting license. Some are enthusiastic mountain climbers, scuba divers or skiers. Others are musicians, dancers, or play competitive sports. Choosing to __50__ themselves to different, extreme environments counts as another way to stand out from the crowd.

Section B Directions:Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. (A) Well, parents, surprise! Lots of us are using Twitter and Facebook to find rides, and not just to school. It’s awkward to call a friend and ask for a ride, and half the time they’ll say, ―Sorry, my car is full.‖ But with Twitter, you just tweet #AshleysPoolParty and look for other people heading the same way. It may sound risky, but many teens stay within their own social circles to find rides, and don’t branch out beyond friends of friends when asking on Twitter. For me, I only rideshare with people I know, but to some young people, especially those taking longer trips, stranger danger is less of a 创新三维学习法，高效学习加速度
concern. The sharing economy got big during the recession（经济衰退）. It allows people to access more goods and services using technology, while also allowing them to share cost. And that technology, for me, is what the car was for my mom, a gateway to more freedom. According to the researchers at the University of Michigan, 30 years ago, eight in ten American 18-year-olds had a driver’s license. Today it’s six in ten. So it’s not that surprising that on my 16th birthday I wasn’t rushing to get a license. All I wanted was an iPhone. Juliet Schor (Sociology professor at BostonCollege) knows people my age love being connected and for young people driving means they have to disconnect from their technology, and that’s a negative. So if they could sit in the passenger side and still be connected, that’s going to be a plus. To me, another plus is ridesharing represents something much bigger than trying to save money. I see it as evidence that people still depend on each other. My generation shares their cars and apartments the way neighbors used to share cups of sugar. For the system to work, some of us still need our own cars. But until I get my own version of the silver Super Beetle, you can find me on Twitter. 66. The writer usually rideshares with _____. A. anyone heading the same way B. people he knows C. friends of friends D. strangers of his age 67. Fewer young people choose to ride by themselves because _____. A. driving means offering free rides to others. B. getting a driving license becomes more difficult. C. driving one’s own cars causes a negative impression. D. driving makes them disconnected from technology. 68. We can conclude from the passage that _____. A. the writer rideshares just to save money B. people under 18 are not allowed to drive C. silver Super Beetle is the writer ’s favorite D. the older generation had to fight for freedom 69. Which is the best title for the passage? A. Teens use Twitter to thumb rides. B. Tips on reducing risks in ridesharing. C. Car is no longer a gateway to freedom. D. New generation knows how to save money. (B) Visit Universal Studios in Singapore now and explore six zones!

C. Children may see some precious stones in the Lost World. D. Two parents and theirchildren should pay $250 during the June holidays. (C) Getting kids to share their toys is a never-ending battle, and forcing them to do so never seems to help. New research suggests that allowing children to make a choice to sacrifice their own toys in order to share with someone else makes them share more in the future. The new findings are published in Psychological Science. These experiments were conducted by psychological scientists, Nadia Chernyak and Tamar Kushnir of CornellUniversity. They found that sharing things with others when they are given a difficult choice leads children to think of themselves as people who like to share. It also makes them more likely to act in a pro-social（亲社会的）manner in the future. Previous research has explained why rewarding children for sharing can backfire. Children come to think of themselves as people who don't like to share since they had to be rewarded for doing so. Because they don't view themselves as "sharers" they are less likely to share in the future. Chernyak and Kushnir were interested in finding out whether freely chosen sacrifice might have the opposite effect on kids' willingness to share.To test this, the researchers introduced five-year-old children to Doggie, a sad puppet. Some of the children were given a difficult choice: Share a precious sticker with Doggie, or keep it for themselves. Other children were given an easy choice between sharing and putting the sticker away, while children in a third group were required by the researcher to share. Later on, all the children were introduced to Ellie, another sad puppet. They were given the option of how many stickers to share (up to three). The kids who earlier made the difficult choice to help Doggie shared more stickers with Ellie. The children who were initially faced with an easy choice or who were required to give their sticker to Doggie, on the other hand, shared fewer stickers with Ellie. Therefore, children did not benefit from simply giving something up, but rather from willingly choosing to give something up of value. ―You might imagine that making difficult, costly choices is taxing for young children or even that once children share, they don’t feel the need to do so again,‖ Chernyak says. ―But this wasn't the case: once children made a difficult decision to give up something for someone else, they were more generous, not less, later on.‖Chernyak concludes. 74. _____ helps children to share more in the future. A. Rewarding children for sharing stickers B. Requiring children to share their favorite toys C. Allowing children to share what they don’t need D. Encouraging children to share precious things willingly 75. The underlined word ―backfire‖ means _____. A. serve as a push B. have an opposite effect C. cause anger D. avoid taking things back 76. Those who were required to share give fewer stickers to Ellie because _____. A. it’s not their own choice B. they regret what they did C. Ellie is not as sad as Doggie D. they like to share with a real person 77. We can conclude from the passage that _____. 创新三维学习法，高效学习加速度
A. parents will never find a way to get children to share toys B. a gift should be given to make up for children’s sacrifice C. making difficult choices may influence sharing behavior D. children pretend to be generous when they are being observed Section C Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. The security industry exists to provide and ensure safety of the population. Teams of developers are constantly working on new devices to better protect not only the people but also their properties. Regular existing technologies such as GPS trackers are also being improved and used in innovative ways to prevent various criminal activities. Named after Natalia Estemirova, a human rights activist who was kidnapped from her home and murdered within 24 hours, the Natalia Project is a bracelet（手镯）handed out by the Civil Rights Defenders in hopes of preventing similar tragedies in the future. After all, a majority of human rights activists are situated in constant danger as they fight for freedom and equality. The chunky braceletwas able to produce satisfactory results. Once triggered （触发） , the bracelets will issue a real-time GPS location of the victim to the Civil Rights Defenders’ headquarters. Nearby contacts will also be alerted so immediate actioncan be taken to rescue the victim. What’s most unique about this bracelet is that it will also send an alert to social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook to notify the public of the attack being placed on the victim. These bracelets will first be distributed to a small group as funding is still a problem. The first five bracelets were distributed by the human rights organization on Defender’s Day in Stockholm, Sweden, on Apr. 5, 2013. ―We would like all human rights defenders at risk to have this alarm, but it costs a lot both for the alarm itself and to build an organization to respond to the alarms and to train the wearers of the alarm. Building a security program around each individual, matched to the specific needs of that person is a complex process. Needless to say, it takes a lot of time and effort to get an alarm up and running to ensure maximum protection for 365 days a year.‖ Though the Civil Rights Defenders is an independent non-governmental expert organization, they do receive the support for their hard work through the Swedish Development Cooperation Agency.The potential for this bracelet to prevent kidnapping of regular children and citizens, if made available to the public, will also be endless.

Q: What can we learn from the conversation? (A) Section B Passages Directions: In Section B, you will hear two short passages, and you will be asked three questions on each of the passages. The passages will be read twice, but the questions will be spoken only once. When you hear a question, read the four possible answers on your paper and decide which one would be the best answer to the question you have heard. Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage. Teachers might want to think twice about posting ―no gum-chewing‖ signs in the classroom. It turns out that the sticky substance might help students concentrate. Researchers had two groups of 20 people each listen to a 30-minute recording that included a sequence of numbers. After listening, the participants were asked to remember the sequence. But only one group chewed gum – and they had higher accuracy rates and faster reaction times than the non-gum chewers. Those chewing gum also maintained focus longer during the exercise. The researchers say that gum increases the flow of oxygen to regions of the brain responsible for attention. More oxygen can keep people alert. Research also shows that you won’t get the same effect by just pretending to chew gum. So the next time your mind is wandering in class, maybe try some gum. If it doesn’t help you concentrate, you’ll at least be asked to leave. (Now listen again) Questions: 11. What’s the passage mainly about? (A) 12. What are participants asked to do after listening to the recording? (B) 13. How can people improve attention and focus? (D) Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. United States (Ohio) - Firefighters battled more than a house fire Wednesday as Mother Nature blew in snow and temperatures in the low 20s. A neighbor called the Geneva Fire Department at 12:59 p.m., reporting seeing the garage on fire at 6619 N. Ridge W., Fire Chief Doug Starkey said. Upon arrival, firefighters found a fully involved garage fire and flames and smoke coming out of the second floor of the house. ―The roof of the house was burning off,‖ he said. No one was injured. A pet dog was inside the house at the time, but escaped without injury, Starkey said. ―We made entry into the first floor of the house and tried to save some of the homeowner’s possessions,‖ he said. ―Overall, it was a total loss.‖ Firefighters did not bring the fire under control until about 2:30 p.m. Madison, Harpersfield and Saybrook fire departments provided assistance in battling the house fire, which was exceptionally difficult in the bitter cold, firefighters said. Although it has not been confirmed, it appears the fire started in the area of the garage, Starkey said. Firefighters did not clear the scene until 4:45 p.m.. (Now listen again) 创新三维学习法，高效学习加速度

Directions: In Section C, you will hear two longer conversations. The conversations will be read twice. After you hear each conversation, you are required to fill in the numbered blanks with information you have heard. Write your answers on your answer sheet. Blanks 17 through 20 are based on the following conversation. W:Mr. Turner’s office. Can I help you? M: Yeah. Hi. This is Steve at Beijing International Travel Service. Is Mr. Turner in, please? W: No, I'm sorry, he’s at a meeting right now. May I take a message? M: Umm ... I’ve got Mr. Turner booked on a flight for Sydney next Tuesday. Can you take down the information? W: Sure. M: Okay. It’s NorthwestFlight 907, which leaves Tuesday at eight a.m. W: Okay. That’s Northwest Flight 907, leaving Tuesday at eight a.m. M: If Mr Turner has any question, call me at 772-1852. W: Okay. That’s 772-18-? M: 52. He can reach me at this number during office hours. W: I'll tell him. And I’ll give him your message. M: Right. Umm ... I’ll send the ticket over later tomorrow afternoon, if that’s okay. W: Oh, sure. That’d be fine. M: Okay. Thanks lot. Bye. W: Bye-bye ... Blacks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation. W: Hey, Ben, how are things going? M: Pretty well, Aunt Mary. Sandy and I are talking about starting a business. What do you think? W: That’s great.

But we really don’t know anything about starting a business. W: It sounds like a business plan would help you. M: I have a business plan. I just told you—I’m going to make apps. W: No, no, Ben. That’s a business idea. A business plan is a written outline of what you are going to do, why and how you are going to do it. M: Oh I see. Actually I’m more worried about the financial aspects of starting a business. W: Your business plan should predict your operational costs and the profit.
