Fortunately Biosphere Expeditions have created a trip that not only benefits the seriously endangered animal, but helps protect it too. Based in a remote camp in the heart of the rainforest, volunteers will tour the landscape, documenting tracks, kills and scats(粪便) to aid important research into the lives of these big cats. Company: Biosphere Expeditions Length: 13 days More information: www.biosphere-expeditions.org Cycling tour: Cambodia With an ancient world of temples and jungles, Cambodia is the kind of country that needs to be explored slowly. PEPY Tours offers 621 miles of green fields, dusty orange tracks and winding rivers on its 15-day cycling expeditions. Money goes directly to local people through homestays and lunches, while tours allow visitors to learn Khmer customs and contribute to ongoing community development projects. Company: PEPY Tours Length: 15 days More information: www.pepytours.com Beach stay: Tanzania A winner in the Best for Beach category at the Responsible Tourism Awards 2014, Chole Mjini Island is a tourists’ paradise(天堂) located off the coast of Tanzania. With no roads or electricity, guests to the low-impact destination can enjoy a simple life in hand-built tree houses and spend days either stretched out on deserted beaches or searching for whale sharks. Company: Chole Mjini Island Length: 6 days More information: www.cholemjini.com Teaching: Morocco It’s the breathtaking beauty that draws tourists to Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains, but while the remoteness of the setting may aid its charm it also causes problems.

Education For All (EFA) is a Moroccan NGO that builds and runs girls’ boarding houses near secondary schools in the High Atlas, making further education theoretically possible. Based in the beautiful town of Asni, the programme is looking for female volunteers with teaching experience.

B Soulful singer Sam Smith was the big winner Sunday night at the 57th annual Grammy Awards(格莱美 奖) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. Smith took home four awards: Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, Song of the Year and Record of the Year. The British artist’s 2014 album, In the Lonely Hour, was about the painful break-up he experienced last year with someone he loved. He accepted his final award for Record of the Year by thanking the one who broke his heart, “because you got me four Grammys,” he said. The big surprise of the night was in the Album of the Year category. Many expected Beyoncé to win for her self-titled album. But musician Beck took home the award for his album Morning Phase. Sunday night, Kanye West played a little trick on Beck and the crowd at the Staples Center. He jumped up on stage as Beck was accepting the award. The move was similar to the joking behavior he displayed at the 2009 Video Music Awards. At that event, West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech to tell the crowd that Beyoncé deserved the award that Swift had just received. Beyoncé did not go home with empty hands Sunday night. She won three Grammys, including Best R&B Song and Best R&B Performance for her song, Drunk in Love. Other Grammy winners included country singer Miranda Lambert and rapper-singer Pharell Williams. The show included a video message from President Barack Obama about ending domestic violence. Opinions were mixed about the musical performances at the Grammy Awards. Most critics praised Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett for their delivery of Cheek to Cheek. And the crowd roared for the performance of Sia’s big hit, Chandelier. Many critics praised Beyoncé’s performance of the gospel song (福 音歌曲), Take My Hand, Precious Lord, but some social media posts show a mixed reaction. Other posts on social media had some fun with the clothing fashions of the night. Some wrote that Rihanna’s large, bright pink dress looked like a “cake topper.” 41. We can learn from the second paragraph that ______. A. In the Lonely Hour was recorded by American singer Sam Smith in 2014 B. Sam Smith expressed his thanks to his former girl-friend in the album C. In the Lonely Hour won three Grammy awards D. In the Lonely Hour was about a heartbroken love story 42. Kanye West jumped up on stage during the 2014 award ceremony because ______. A. he envied Beck B. he expected Beyoncé to win C. he wanted to amuse the audience D. he intended to make a speech
43. What does the underlined word “roared” mean in the last paragraph? A. Danced. B. Cheered. C. Shook. D. Panicked. 44. Which of the following artists is not a Grammy winner this time? A. Pharell. B. Beyoncé. C. Taylor Swift. D. Miranda Lambert. 45. Which of the following statements is TRUE? A. Beyoncé had been expected to win the Album of the Year. B. President Barack Obama attended the Grammy Awards. C. The audience criticized Kanye West for his behavior. D. People sang high praise for the musical performances at the Awards. C In 2002, when I returned to Kinshasa, Friedhelm, a fellow doctor, arranged a visit to Zongo Falls for his visiting brother and me. It was impossible to refuse as one seldom, if ever, got a chance to travel for pleasure in Congo(刚果). Petrol, like all imported goods, was extremely expensive, so casual sightseeing was normally out of the question. I imagine it would cost Friedhelm a good fortune. An elderly pastor (牧师), having heard about our plan, asked if he could accompany us. He wanted to revisit his childhood village which was near Zongo Falls. This kindly gentleman, who was about 70, had not been to the village for 60 years. There was no bus service, and all other forms of transportation were beyond his means. This was his last and only chance. We left Kinshasa around 9am. Normally it would take three hours to get to the falls, but we stopped several times along the way, taking in the sights. Finally, around 5pm, we arrived at Zongo Falls. Even as we admired the beauty of the waterfall, we knew we were running out of time. The sun would set at 6pm, and travel in the Congo was unsafe after dark. We needed to get back to Kinshasa as quickly as possible, which meant that we could not make the one-hour detour(绕行) to the pastor ’s village. No one spoke as we started our return journey, least of all the elderly pastor. What could he possibly say? He was in no position to demand anything. Sitting next to him in the back of the Land Cruiser, I could sense his sadness and frustration. Meanwhile, Friedhelm sat in the front seat whispering with his brother. As we approached the detour to the village, he turned around and looked at me. Sometimes there are questions in life that one need not ask, and answers that are obvious. I nodded my head, and Friedhelm told the driver to make the detour. The sun had already set when we arrived at the small village, where we stayed only 20 minutes. During the drive back, the pastor was quiet, but I know the visit meant a lot to him. As we said our goodbyes in Kinshasa, his eyes were filled with tears. 46. What can we infer from Paragraph 3? A. The pastor didn’t know the location of his hometown. B. The pastor had no relatives in the village. C. The pastor led a lonely life for a long time. D. The pastor wanted to visit his hometown badly. 47. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage? A. They spent about 3 hours enjoying beautiful scenery on their way to Zongo Falls. B. They passed by the pastor ’s village on their way to Zongo Falls. C. Sightseeing on the way to Zongo Falls took a much longer time than expected. D. They stayed at Zongo Falls for at least 2 hours. 48. What did Friedhelm most probably whisper about with his brother? A. The beautiful scenery of Zongo Falls and along the way. B. The pity of not being able to stay at Zongo Falls for a longer time. C. The discussion about whether to make the detour to the pastor’s village. D. The discussion about how to reach the pastor’s village.
49. What can we learn from the passage? A. The pastor demanded that they should drive to his village though it was late. B. If they hadn’t made the detour, the pastor would have been very disappointed. C. Land Cruiser is the name of a place located near Zongo Falls. D. The author didn’t like to travel in Congo. 50. Which of the following words can best describe the pastor ’s feeling at the end of the story? A. Grateful. B. Favorable. C. Regretful. D. Understanding. D Anyone who has worn a cast (石膏) knows that rebuilding muscle strength once the cast is removed can be difficult. Now researchers at the Ohio Musculoskeletal and Neurological Institute (OMNI) at Ohio University have found that the mind is critical in maintaining muscle strength following a long period of not moving and that mental imagination may be key in reducing the associated muscle loss. Strength is controlled by a number of factors----the most studied by far is skeletal muscle. However, the nervous system is also an important, though not fully understood, determining factor of strength and weakness. Brian C. Clark and colleagues set out to test how the system functions in strength development. They designed an experiment to measure changes in wrist (腕) muscle strength in three groups of healthy adults. Twenty-nine subjects wore a hard cast that extended from just below the elbow (肘) past the fingers, effectively preventing the hand and wrist from moving, for four weeks. Fifteen subjects who did not wear casts served as the control group. Of the 29 people wearing a hard cast, half were asked to regularly perform an exercise, imagining they were strongly contracting their wrist for five seconds and then resting for five seconds. This was repeated four times in a row followed by a one-minute break for a total of 13 rounds per session and five sessions per week. The other half performed no imagination exercises. At the end of the four-week experiment, both groups who wore casts had lost strength in their unmoving limbs (肢体) when compared to the control group. But the group that performed imagination exercises lost 50% less strength than the non-imagination group. The nervous system’s ability to fully make the muscle recover also returned more quickly in the imagination group compared to the non-imagination group. 51. What does the underlined word “critical” mean in the first paragraph? A. Serious. B. Disapproving. C. Significant. D. Criticizing. 52. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage? A. Scientists have partly understood the nervous system. B. Whoever has worn a cast for long may have difficulty in muscle recovery. C. Scientists have already spent a lot of time in studying skeletal muscle. D. The number of the subjects in the experiment was 29 in all. 53. How many rounds of exercise were performed in the four-week experiment? A. 13. B. 65. C. 260. D.1040. 54. What can we learn from the experiment? A. The control group lost 50% less strength than the non-imagination group. B. The imagination group lost more strength than the non-imagination group. C. The control group wore casts but didn’t perform the imagination exercise. D. The speed of non-imagination group’s muscle recovery was slower. 55. Where can you most probably find the passage? A. In a science magazine. B. In a storybook. C. In a textbook . D. In a book review.

第一节: 阅读表达（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） Before he sailed round the world single-handed, Francis Chichester had already surprised his friends several times. He had tried to fly round the world but failed. That was in 1931. The years passed. He gave up flying and began sailing. He enjoyed it greatly. Chichester was already 58 years old when he won the first solo trans-Atlantic sailing race. His old dream of going round the world came back, but this time he would sail. His friends and doctors did not think he could do it, as he had lung cancer. But Chichester was determined to carry out his plan. In August, 1966, at the age of nearly 65, an age at which many men retire, he began his greatest voyage of his life. Chichester covered 14,100 miles before stopping in Sydney, Australia. This was more than twice the distance anyone had previously sailed alone. On shore, he could not walk without help. Everybody said the same thing: he had done enough; he must not go any further. But he did not listen. After resting in Sydney for a few weeks, Chichester set off once more in spite of his friends’ attempt to dissuade him. The second half of his voyage was by far the more dangerous part, during which he sailed round the risky Cape Horn. After succeeding in sailing round Cape Horn, Chichester sent the following radio message to London: “I feel as if I had waken up from a horrible dream. Even a wild horse could not drag me down to Cape Horn and that rough Southern Ocean again.” Just before 9 o’clock on Sunday evening 28 May, 1967, he arrived back in England, where a quarter of a million people were waiting to welcome him. The whole voyage from England and back had covered 28,500 miles. It had taken him nine months, of which the sailing time was 226 days. He had done what he wanted to accomplish. 56. What is the main idea of the passage? (No more than 10 words) 57. What did Chichester achieve at the age of 58?(No more than 10 words) 58. The underlined word “dissuade” in Paragraph 4 can be replaced by _______.(One word) 59. What did Chichester mean by saying the underlined part in Paragraph 4 ?(No more than 10 words) 60. Please explain how you are inspired by Chichester. (No more than 20 words) 第二节：书面表达（满分 25 分） 61. 假如你是李华，上周日和父母驾车去蓟县(Ji County)盘山(the Panshan Mountain)爬山。请根据下面 几幅图片的内容，用英文写一篇短文，记述这次旅程，并谈谈自己的感受。
