unfamiliar staircase alone. I mean something bigger than that: an assurance that I am, special place where I can make myself fit. It took me years to discover and strengthen this assurance. It had to start with the most things. Once a man gave me an indoor baseball.

Service animals B Some people believe that international sport creates goodwill between the nations and that if countries play games together they will learn to live together. Others say that the opposite is true: that international contests encourage false national pride and lead to misunderstanding and hatred. There is probably some truth in both arguments, but in recent years the Olympic Games have done little to support the view that sport encourages international brotherhood. Not only was the Olympics the scene of a tragic incident involving the murder of athletes, but the Games were also ruined by lesser incidents caused mainly by minor national contests. One country received its second-place medals with visible indignation after the hockey final. There had been noisy scenes at the end of the hockey match, the losers objecting to the final decisions. They were convinced that one of their goals should not have been disallowed and that their opponents' victory was unfair. Their manager was in a rage when he said: “This wasn’t hockey. Hockey and the International Hockey Federation are finished." The president of the Federation said later that such behavior could result in the suspension of the team for at least three years. The American basketball team announced that they would not yield first place to Russia, after a disputable end to their contest. The game had ended in disturbance. It was thought at first that the United States had won by a single point, but it was announced that there were three seconds still to play. A Russian player then threw the ball from one end of the court to the other, and another player popped it into the basket. It was the first time the U.S.A. had ever lost an Olympic basketball match. An appeal jury debated the matter for four and a half hours before announcing that the result would stand. The American players then voted not to receive the silver medals. Incidents of this kind will continue as long as sport is played competitively rather than for the love of the game. The suggestion that athletes should compete as individuals, or in non-national teams, might be too much to hope for. But in the present organization of the Olympics there is far too much that encourages aggressive patriotism. 49. What did the manager mean by saying, "Hockey and the International Hockey Federation are finished”? A. His team would no longer take part in international games. B. There should be no more hockey matches organized by the Federation. C. Hockey and the Federation are both ruined by the unfair decisions.
48. Disabled visitors can receive the following services EXCEPT ________. C. Sing-language interpreting services
D. The Federation should be dismissed in the future. 50. The author gives the two examples in Paragraphs 2 and 3 to show_______ . A. how national pride led to undesirable incidents in international games B. that sportsmen are less aggressive than they used to be C. that competitiveness in the games discourages international friendship D. that unfair decisions are common in the Olympic Games 51. What conclusion can be drawn from the passage? A. The organization of the Olympic Games must be improved. B. Athletes should compete as individuals in the Olympic Games. C. Sport should be played competitively rather than for the love of the game. D. International contests will lead to misunderstanding between nations. C Yeast(酵母) cells feeding on the glucose(葡萄糖) in human blood might one day power implants such as pacemakers(起搏器). A living source of power that is able to regenerate itself would get rid of the need for regular operations to replace batteries. Now that prospect is a step nearer. A team at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, has created tiny microbial fuel cells by packaging yeast cells in a flexible capsule. They went on to show the fuel cells can generate power from a drop of human blood plasma. Such fuel cells would be especially useful for devices, such as intraspinal(脊柱内) microelectrodes for treating paralysis(瘫痪), which need to be implanted in places where replacing a battery is tricky. Conventional fuel cells rely on high-temperature activator to remove electrons from fuels and generate a current. The idea with microbial fuel cells, which are being investigated as large-scale power sources, is to exploit the wide range of low-temperature activator—enzymes(酶)—found in living cells. The easiest way to do this is to simply steal the electrons produced when cells start to break down food. This can be done with the help of an “electron mediator” —a chemical small enough to pass into cells, grab some electrons, and spread out again. The electron mediator steals some of the electrons produced when the yeast metabolizes (代谢) glucose and delivers them to the positive side of the cell, creating a small current. On the other side, hydrogen ions that spread out of the yeast cells combine with oxygen to create water. The yeast-based feul cell produces around 40 nanowatts of power, compared to the microwatt a typical wristwatch battery might produce. That might be enough power for some devices if it were coupled with a capacitor to allow energy to be stored. The yeast could also be genetically engineered to boost its power output. The work is a step in the right direction, but huge challenges remain. For instance, to keep the yeast cells healthy, their waste products will need to be removed without allowing any harmful substances to filter into the blood stream. It may take us some time to realize it.
52. What can be inferred from para 1? A. We can use yeast cells instead of batteries in the operation now. B. Human blood provides certain fuel for medical devices in the operation. C. We often put some medical devices into the patients? bodies if necessary. D. Thanks to the living sources, we needn't do any surgeries any more. 53. The underlined part “Electron mediator” is used to refer to_______ . A. a tiny chemical which is good at breaking down food B. a small chemical which is good at stealing blood C. a tiny chemical which can help with creating current D. a small chemical with which we can steal all the electrons 54. How much power can be produced by a yeast-based fuel cell? A. It can generate the same amount of electricity with a specially-designed battery. B. It can produce the same amount of electricity with a common battery for wristwatch. C. It can provide enough electricity for some devices. D. It can make more power with the help of an engineer. 55. What?s the author ?s opinion about the yeast-based fuel cells? A. The author thinks them interesting. B. The author considers them promising. C. The author makes no comments on them. D. The author worries about the future of them. D I have only once been in trouble with the law. The whole process of being arrested and taken to court was a rather unpleasant experience at the time, but it makes a good story now. What makes it rather disturbing was the arbitrary circumstances both of my arrest and my subsequent fate in court. It happened in February about twelve years ago. I had left school a couple of months before that and was not due to go to university until the following October. I was still living at home at the time. One morning I was in Richmond, a suburb of London near where I lived. I was looking for a temporary job so that I could save up some money to go traveling. As it was a fine day and I was in no hurry, I was taking my time, looking in shop windows, strolling in the park, and sometimes just stopping and looking around me. It must have been this obvious aimlessness that led to my downfall. It was about half past eleven when it happened. I was just walking out of the local library, having unsuccessfully sought employment there, when I saw a man walking across the road with the obvious intention of talking to me. I thought he was going to ask me the time. Instead, he said he was a police officer and he was arresting me. At first I thought it was some kind of joke.
But then another policeman appeared, this time in uniform, and I was left in no doubt. “But what for?” I asked. “Wandering with intent to commit an arrestable offence.” he said. ?What offence?” I asked. “Theft.” he said. “Theft of what?” I asked. "Milk bottles, he said, and with a perfectly straight face too! “Oh,” I said It turned out there had been a lot of petty thefts in the area, particularly that of stealing milk bottles from doorsteps. Then I made my big mistake. At the time I was nineteen, had long untidy hair, and regarded myself as part of the sixties? "youth counterculture”. As a result, I wanted to appear cool and unconcerned with the incident, so I said, "How long have you been following me?" in the most casual and conversational tone I could manage. I thus appeared to them to be quite familiar with this sort of situation, and it confirmed them in their belief that I was a thoroughly disreputable(品
A few minutes later a police car arrived. “Get in the back,” they said. “Put your hands on the back of the front seat and don?t move them.” They got in on either side of me. It wasn't funny any more. At the police station they questioned me for several hours. I continued to try to look worldly and familiar with the situation. When they asked me what I had been doing, I told them I'd been looking for a job. “Aha,” I could see them thinking, "unemployed”. Eventually, I was officially charged and told to report to Richmond Magistrates' Court the following Monday. Then they let me go. I wanted to conduct my own defense in court, but as soon as my father found out what had happened, he hired a very good lawyer. We went along that Monday armed with all kinds of witnesses, including my English teacher from school as a character witness. But he was never called on to give evidence. My “trial” didn?t get that far. The magistrate(法官）dismissed the case after fifteen minutes. I was free. The poor police had never stood a chance. The lawyer even succeeded in getting costs awarded against the police. And so I do not have a criminal record. But what was most shocking at the time was the things my release from the charge so clearly depended on. I had the "right" accent, respectable middle-class parents in court, reliable witnesses, and I could obviously afford a very good lawyer. Given the obscure nature of the charge, I feel sure that if I had come from a different background, and had really been unemployed, there is every chance that I would have been found guilty. While asking for costs to be awarded, my lawyer?s case quite obviously revolved (回转)around the fact
that I had a “brilliant academic record". Meanwhile, just outside the courtroom, one of the policemen who had arrested me was gloomily complaining to my mother that another youngster had been turned against the police. "You could have been a bit more helpful when we arrested you,” he said to me reproachfully (责备
What did he mean? Probably that I should have looked outraged and said something like, “Look here, do you know who you're talking to? I am a highly successful student with a brilliant academic record. How dare you arrest me!" Then they, probably, would have apologized perhaps even taken off their caps, and let me on my way. 56. From the passage, we can see that the first man who came up to him was _______ . A. a uniformed policeman C. a magistrate B. a good joker D. a policeman in plainclothes
57. The court never asked the author's English teacher to give evidence because_______ . A. the time for the trial was limited to fifteen minutes only B. the case was dismissed before the trial reached that stage C. the author wanted to conduct his own defense in court D. he was found to be unqualified as a character witness 58. The author believes that he would most probably have been declared guilty if_______ . A. he had been bom in a lower-class family and out of work B. his English teacher had not appeared in the court C. he had been rude to the policemen D. the magistrate had been less gentle 59. In the opinion of one of the policeman who had arrested the author, the whole thing might not have occurred if ________. A. he had begged to be allowed to go home B. he had protested strongly at the time C. he hadn't wandered aimlessly A. angry D. he had tried to look cool 60. The underlined word “outraged” in the last paragraph probably means . B. frightened C. pitiful D. proud 第二卷（非选择题，共 45 分） 第五部分：任务型阅读(共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 请认真阅读下面的短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单 词。注意：请将答案写在答题卡上相应的横线上。 It's no surprise that sports can greatly benefit a child physically, psychologically, and socially. A 2008 Women's Sports Foundation Report concluded that children's athletic participation has something to do with increased levels of family satisfaction, great achievement in study, and an overall better quality of life for children. And a study published in last month's American Journal of Preventive Medicine showed that kids who are active at age 5 wind up with less body fat at
ages 8 and 11. But one hotly debated discussion focuses on the kinds of sports kids should play, with parents incorrectly thinking, "Lizzie is so quiet. We should enroll her in basketball and soccer to try to get her to open up.” But increasingly, experts are suggesting the healthier instinct might be, “Lizzie is so quiet. Maybe we should see if she likes playing with a big team like softball or if she likes ballet or swimming, where she can work more on her own terms." Participation in any sport is going to provide kids with life skills the ability to focus and to concentrate, the ability to handle pressure in tough situations, and the ability to stay calm when things aren't going just right," explains Orlando-based youth sports psychology expert Patrick Cohn. Those lessons will cany over into future, non-sports endeavors. Team sports certainly offer benefits not as easily obtained via individual activities, as players learn how to communicate and work with others, and there's the potential to develop leadership abilities. Team sports also help kids develop their social identity. Our sense of worth is developed through what we achieve and a sense of belonging. Individual sports offer distinct advantages, too, like developing a child?s sense of independence. "Here, you don't depend upon teammates,says Cohn. "You take full responsibility, whether you do well or perform poorly.” Many of Cohn?s young clients complain about pressure from teammates or coaches to make zero mistakes or carry more of the team than they may want to; these kids may enjoy a solo sport like tennis or gymnastics. Individual activities keep kids from comparing themselves to the best players on the team, a habit that does little to help confidence levels. Instead, it encourages them to compare their skills to their own past performances. With individual sports like swimming or track, it's easier for the child to participate on his own, at his leisure, without having to round up a bunch of like-minded peers. Above all, while some children thrive(健康成长) on the excitement of competition, others are more likely to benefit from the freedom of individual sports, and finding the right balance can be necessary for children?s enjoyment. What parents think is encouragement, children often consider as pressure. So try to understand what they want from sports.

This was repeated several times. Then the elephant asked the fly, "Why are you so restless and noisy? Why can?t you stay for a while in one place? " The fly answered, "I am attracted to whatever I see, hear or smell. My five senses pull me constantly in all directions and I cannot resist them. What is your secret? How can you stay so calm and still?” The elephant stopped eating and said, “My five senses do not rule my attention. Whatever I do, I get involved in it.

He was born on September 16, 1956 in New Jersey. He
picked up magic at 8 and began performing professionally at 12. By the age of 16, he was already teaching magic at New York University. In 1977, he was chosen to host a TV show, The Magic of ABC. The show was a huge success, and made him known to the whole world. He understands his craft more than any other magician before him. He said, “Before there can be wonders, there must be wonder.” Where others think, “It can?t be done,” he always says, “Yes, it can.” With this attitude, he never stops amazing people with magic. But the greatest work he thinks he has done is Project Magic. This is a project established in March 1982 to help disabled patients. Every year, he performs over 550 shows and has created many box office records. His love for magic is everything to him. And to those who want to become great magicians, he gave this advice: “Practise, practise, practise, and never consider anything impossible.” Do you know who he is now? Call 202-983-2476 to tell us the name of this magician, and you will get a DVD of his shows.

The story tells us that an elephant responded to a restless fly, who constantly disturbed him and wondered about the secret of remaining calm, that calmness would be obtained only when one?s senses and attention were focused.
Definitely, this story is aimed at informing us of the significance of concentration. It goes without saying that being focused enables us to achieve our objectives more smoothly and realize our dreams more rapidly. What?s more, those who can concentrate on doing things in desperate situations are more likely to discover their shortcomings, thus seizing the opportunity. Therefore, concentration is awfully needed for us Senior Three students to learn our lessons. For me, I intend to set a clear goal first. Then I will give priority to what I will be doing and keep it up, trying to resist the temptation of other events. I am fully aware that only when I have a clear and determined mind can I achieve my goal in the end.
