Event Li Yang, one of China's most famous English teachers, apologized for b eating his American wife more than a week after she posted photos of her injuries on the web and set off a bomb of criticism. "I wholeheartedly apologize to my wife Kim and my girls for committing dom

estic violence. This has caused them serious physical and mental damage," Li sa id on his mieroblog at Weibo.com, the country's most popular social media site, on Saturday. Voices @Xuemanzi, angel investor Anti-domestic violence laws should be made as soon as possible, giving prot ection to the rights of women and children lawfully. Police should not stand ba ck from domestic violence any longer, even if no one reports them. Society, as a whole, should attach greater importance to the crime. @Zhangxiaomei Chinese are never taught about marital relations, which mean not merely li ving together. A good marriage needs to overcome three differences: family back ground, gender and personalities. In addition to these, there is cultural gap i n Li Yang's case. If the effects of these differences are not well understood, after the honeymoon period, they will turn into conflicts and endanger the ma

rriage. Li's domestic violence is a reminder that China needs such education.

@Sikaozhe, Sina Weibo user In the US, the punishments for domestic violence are even more severe than strealing. If the police arrive at the wife's call during a fighting between a husband. Eve

couple nd find injuries on her, they will immediately arrest the

n if the wife doesn't call the police, they may also show up as neighbors could well do their part. @ykxin Sina Weibo User Don't blindly worship anyone, because in every closet there may hide a skeleton. As a famous Chinese saying goes, "Only they who do well in their da ily routine tasks can fulfills their dreams on great occasions". Not surprisingly, one who focuses to o much on his career and ignores his family, like Li Yang, will fail in both. Don't judge a person by hi s career success, wealth, or any other material aspect, because what finally decides a person is his charact er. 21.

B It's hard to find Alice Munro in the media. Even after she won the 2013 Nobel Prize in Literature,the Canadian writer just appeared for a quick interview and then dropped out of sight. On Dec. 29,she still didn’t seek the spotlight when she was named one of the Five Women of the Year by the Financial Times. In Munro's eyes,ordinary lives always hide larger dramas. So she records what we casually think of as the everyday actions of normal people. She often focuses on life in her hometown,a small village in Ontario which she is most familiar

with. She writes about the ordinary things in the village—fox forming,trees filled in the Ontario wilderness, poor country alcohol and long last illnesses. Above all, she talks about girls and women who have seemingly ordinary lives but struggle against daily misfortune. She has a special talent for uncovering the extraordinary in the ordinary. These are ordinary people,ordinary stories,but she has the magic. Her precise language,depth of detail and the logic of her storytelling have made her stories inviting. Runaway,one of Munro’s representative works,is a good example of her writing style. One of the stories centers on the life of an ordinary woman Carla, who lives in a small Canadian town with her husband Clark. The story slowly forms a picture of Carla,trapped in a bad marriage,her unhappiness building into desperation until she decides to flee. The story of Carla is a story of the power and betrayals of love. It is about lost children and lots of chances that we can all find in life, There is pain beneath the surface,like a needle in the heart. Since she published her first collection of short stories in 1968,Munro has won many awards,with the Nobel Prize being her biggest honor. On Oct. 10, 2013, the Nobel Prize committee named Munro the “master of the contemporary short story”. 24. We learn from Paragraph 1 that Alice Munro A. didn’t get on well with the media B. was surprised at winning the Nobel Prize C. didn’t value the title of Women of the Year D. remained modest though very successful 25. What makes Alice Munro’s stories fascinating according to the text? A. The complicated plots. B. Her writing techniques. C. The humorous language. D. Her rich imagination. 26. In her representative work Runaway,Carla . A. leads a happy life with Clark B. is a faithful wife to her husband C. tries to run away from her husband D. loses all hopes for a better life 27. What is the text mainly about? A. Alice Munro and her hometown. B.The awards Alice Munro won. C.Alice Munro’s literary life. D.Alice Munro and her writing style.

Let us imagine how Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen's most famous work, might be updated, 200 years on. Austen's popularity is rooted in her intelligence. But today she would certainly have had a very different life, as would her characters. Here's my own suggestion. It is a truth finally and universally acknowledged that a single woman with

brains deserves to have equal opportunities to men, however disadvantaged she may feel by sexism. " My dear husband," said his hopeful wife one day, " have you heard that the local store, standing empty for so long, is taken over by a bright young businesswoman?" Her dull and indifferent husband replied that he had not. "But it is, it is," she replied excitedly. Mr Dull-Husband made no reply. "Don't you want to know her plans?" she cried with some impatience. "Well, clearly you think it matters to your silly little head. .. so I'd better listen. " "Well, my dear, the rumour is that she has already set up a string of successful businesses in northern England, though how a woman can know anything about that is beyond me. She will move in herself next month. " "What is her name?" "Bingley. " "Is she married or single?" "What a question! And none of your business. But her coming will be a fine thing for our five boys. " "How so? How can it possibly affect them? " "My dear love; those lazy boys need something to wake them up. There are bound to be jobs going. " " Is that her point in settling here? Surely as a woman she has simply taken a fancy to the place. " " Nonsense, my love, how little you've noticed the world has changed. She's got a first-rate degree and some sort of business qualification, I'm told. She surely needs one of our boys! Perhaps you might give her a call. " " Me? No. Perhaps you can take an interest. You still have your looks, after all. She may even offer you a job. " "Oh, that's not likely. These new chances belong to the younger generation. But now you mention it, I think I'll go along all the same. " And Mrs Bennet went along. That was 10 years ago. She is now managing director of a FTSE-listed company. ... It would remain the case, of course, that Mrs Bennet would be one of very few women on the company board, that her salary would be lower than her male colleagues, her bonus of a more "female" dimension and her lifespan among the city's business leaders shorter than theirs. Still, she'd no doubt have enjoyed Davos (达沃斯经济论坛)—and might even have hobnobbed (攀谈) with influential figures. 28、Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A.Austen was born 200 years ago. B.Austen rewrote Pride and Prejudice. C.Austen's success lies in her wisdom. D.Austen's updated work gains popularity. 29、The underlined part in the passage suggests that Mrs Bennet ____. A.had mixed feelings of admiration and surprise about Bingley B.felt kind of worried and doubtful about Bingley

C.was extremely anxious to meet Bingley D.had
