M: What a boring speaker! I could hardly stay awake.

M: Hello, Professor Johnson.
W: Hello, Tony, so what shall we work on today?
M: Well, the problem is that this writing assignment isn’t coming out right. What I thought I was writing on was to talk about what a particu lar sport means to me when I participate in.
W: What sport did you choose?
M: I decided to write about cross-country skiing.
W: What are you going to say about skiing?
M: That’s the problem. I thought I would write about how peaceful it is to be out in the country.
W: So why is that a problem?
M: I’d like to start describing how quite it is to be out in the woods. I keep mentioning how much effort it takes to keep going. Cross-country skiing isn’t as simple as some people think. It takes a lot of energy, but that’s not heart of my paper, so I guess I should leave it out. But now I don’t know how to explain that feeling of peacefulness without explainin g how hard you have to work for it. It all fits together. It’s not like just sitting down somewhere and watching the clouds roll by. That’s different.
W: Then you have to include that in your point. The peacefulness of cross-country skiing is the kind you earn by effort. Why leave that out? P art of the point you knew beforehand, but part you discovered as you wr ote. That’s common, right?
M: Yeah, I guess so.

There are many commonly held beliefs about eye glasses and eyesigh t that are not proven facts. For instance, some people believe that wearin g glasses too soon weakens the eyes. But there is no evidence to show t hat the structure of eyes is changed by wearing glasses at a young age. Wearing the wrong glasses, however, can prove harmful. Studies show tha
t for adults there is no danger, but children can develop loss of vision if they have glasses inappropriate for their eyes.
We have all heard some of the common myths about how eyesight g ets bad. Most people believe that reading in dim light causes poor eyesig ht, but that is untrue. Too little light makes the eyes work harder, so the y do get tired and strained. Eyestrain also results from reading a lot, rea ding in bed, and watching too much television. However, although eyestrai n may cause some pain or headaches, it does not permanently damage ey esight.
Another myth about eyes is that they can be replaced, or transferred from one person to another. There are close to one million nerve fibres that connect the eyeball to the brain, as of yet it is impossible to attach them all in a new person. Only certain parts of the eye can be replaced. But if we keep clearing up the myths and learning more about the eyes, some day a full transplant may be possible.
Questions 26 to 28 are based on the passage you have just heard.
26. What does the speaker want to tell us about eyesight?
27. What do studies about wearing the wrong glasses show?
28. What do we learn about eye transplanting from the talk?
When people care for an elderly relative, they often do not use availa ble community services, such as adult day care centers. If the care givers are adult children, they are more likely to use such services, especially b ecause they often have jobs and other responsibilities. In contrast, a spou se, usually the wife, is much less likely to use support services or to put the dependent person in a nursing home. Social workers discover that the wife normally tries to take care of her husband herself for as long as sh e can in order not to use up their life savings. Researchers have found th at caring for the elderly can be a very positive experience. The elderly ap preciated the care and attention they received. They were affectionate and corporative. However, even when care giving is satisfying, it is hard wor k. Social workers and experts on aging offer care givers and potential car e givers help when arranging for the care of an elderly relative. One cons ideration is to ask parents what they want before they become sick or de pendent. Perhaps they prefer going into a nursing home can select one in advance. On the other hand, they may want to live with their adult child ren. Care givers must also learn to state their needs and opinions clearly and ask for help from others especially brothers and sisters. Brothers and sisters are often willing to help but they may not know what to do。
Question 29 to 31 are based on the passage you have just heard。
Q29. Why are adult children more likely to use community services t o help care for elderly parents?
Q30. Why are most wives unwilling to put their dependent husbands into nursing homes?

Questions 32 to 35 are based on the passage you have just heard。
Since a union representative visited our company to inform us about our rights and protections. My coworkers have been worrying about healt h conditions and complaining about safety hazards in the workplace. Seve ral of the employees in the computer department, for example, claim to b e developing vision problems from having to stare at a video display ter minal for about 7 hours a day. The supervisor of the laboratory is beginn ing to get headaches and dizzy spells because she says it’s dangerous to breathe some of the chemical smoke there. An X-rays technician is refusin g to do her job until the firm agrees to replace its out-dated equipment. She insists that it’s exposing workers to unnecessarily high doses of radia tion. She thinks that she may have to contact the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and asked that government agency to inspect the department. I’ve heard that at a factory in the area two pregnant women who were working with paint requested a transfer to a safer department, because they wanted to prevent damage to their unborn babies. The sup ervisor of personnel refused the request. In another firm the workers wer e constantly complaining about the malfunctioning heating system, but the owners was too busy or too mean to do anything about it. Finally, they
all met an agree to wear ski-clothing to work the next day. The owner w as too embarrassed to talk to his employees. But he had the heating syst em replaced right away。

Contrary to the old warning that time waits for no one. Time slows down when you are on the move. It also slows down more as you move faster, which means astronauts someday may survive so long in space th at they would return to earth in a distant future. If you could move at th e speed of light, your time will stand still. If you could move faster than light, your time will move backwards. Although no form of matter yet dis covered move as fast as or faster than light, scientific experiments have a lready confirmed that the accelerated motion causes a traveller’s time to be stretched。
Albert Einstein predicted this in 1905, when he introduced the conce pt of relative time as part of his special theory of relativity. A search is
now underway to confirm the suspected existence of particles of matter t hat move at the speed greater than light, and therfore might serve as a p assport to the past And obsession with time, saving, gaining, wasting, losi ng and mastering it, seems to have been part of humanity for as long as human’s have existed。
Humanity also has been obsessed with trying to capture the meaning of time. Einstein used a definition of time for experimental purposes, is t hat which is measured by a clock, thus time and time’s relativity are mea surable by any hour glass, alarm clock or an atomic clock that can measu re a billionth of a second。
