What is your zodiac（生肖） animal? According to the Chinese lunar calendar（农历）, 12 animals mark 12 different years. It is the basis of the Chinese zodiac. Nowadays, Chinese zodiac animals have worldwide fame and are increasingly popular among western people.
The zodiac is an important part of Chinese culture. People believe that the characteristics of a zodiac animal influence the personality of every person born in that year. For example, people born in the Year of the Tiger are considered powerful and brave.
Zodiac animals also have some social functions. When people think it is not proper to ask: “How old are you”, they may change their question to “What is your zodiac animal?” With this question, you can figure out roughly which year someone was born and the person’s age.
Zodiac animals are not special to China. Many countries share a similar zodiac culture with China. For example, in the Japanese Zodiac, a wild boar（野猪） takes the place of a pig and the Vietnamese（越南的） zodiac has a cat instead of a rabbit.
But have you ever wondered how these 12 animals were chosen to represent each year? According to legend, the Jade Emperor（玉皇大帝） invited all the animals to join him for Chinese New Year. Only 12 animals went to see him. As a reward he named a year after each one in the order they arrived. The ox would have been the first to arrive, but the rat sat on his back and jumped off just before they arrived to come in first place.
46. The characteristics of a zodiac animal may influence the _____ of every person born in that year.
A. appearance B. personality C. hobby D. education
47. “What is your zodiac animal?” is a question used to find out a person’s______.
A. age B. name C. job D. weight

A. wild boar B. rabbit C. dragon D. pig
49. According to the last paragraph, we know that ______ was the first animal to arrive.
A. ox B. rat C. pig D. cat 50. The best title for this passage is _____.
A. The story of the Chinese zodiac
B. The story of zodiac animals
C. The story of the Jade Emperor
D. The story of people’s birthdays
（B) B. for B. because B. park B. walking C. but C. when C. bank C. watching D. so D. unless D. hospital D. looking
Taking part in charity is not just for adult people. Kids can do it too! Melvin Sheppard, 14, an American student, has done charity work for eight years. He has also encouraged his classmates to join him.
Melvin studies at William Allen Middle School in Philadelphia. Recently, he collected $1500 by himself and $487 from his classmates to donate（捐赠）to Cooper University Hospital.
Melvin was born nine weeks premature（早产的） in Cooper University Hospital, weighing 2.6 kg. His father told him how Cooper saved his life, so he feels thankful to the hospital.
Melvin’s classmates joined him once they found out about his kind behavior. Their teacher, Michael Berner, also held a class with them about helping others. “It wasn’t really about the money,” Berner said. “It was about the fact that they were doing something good.”
“It feels great, helping someone that I know,” said Jordan, Melvin’s classmate. Melvin’s neighbors also helped out.
Since Melvin was 8, he and his parents have given money to Cooper University Hospital every year. This year, Gary E. Stahl, the head of Cooper’s division of neonatology（新生儿科学部门）, went to Melvin’s school to accept the money.
The money goes to a part of the hospital that helps about 500 young patients every year. “When they leave, we call them graduates（毕业生）,” Stahl said. He said he and his co-workers are “pleased when our graduates and their families do well, like Melvin and his family.”

Christian Eijkman, a Dutch doctor, left the Netherlands for the island of Java. Many people on the island had At first, Eijkman thought some kind of germ (细菌) caused beri-beri. He raised some chickens. He didn’t eat them, but made experiments on them. The local people were quite surprised at that. One day he noticed that his chickens became sick when they were fed the food most Javanese ate — refined white rice . When he fed them with unrefined rice, also known as brown rice, they recovered. Eijkman realized that he had made an important discovery — that some things in food could prevent disease. These things were named vitamins . The Javanese were not getting enough vitamins because they had actually removed the part that contains vitamins. Later, other diseases were also found to be caused by the lack of vitamins in a person’s food.

There are many ways to find a job. It can be as easy as walking into a neighborhood store to look at its announcement board. Local stores often have areas（地方） where people can put small signs telling what kind of service they need or can provide. Such services include caring for children or cleaning houses.
Or, job searchers can look in the newspaper. Local newspapers have employment announcements placed by companies looking for workers.
Another popular tool （工具）for finding jobs is the Internet. For example, people in four hundred and fifty cities around the world can use the Craigslist Web site to buy objects, meet people or find a job. Craigslist says that it receives two million new job listings each month.
Another useful way to find a job is through a college or university. For example, students at the University of Texas in Austin can go to the Career (职业) Exploration Center to get help in finding a job. Of course, looking for a job requires knowing what kind of work you want to do. For example, there is a book called “What Color is Your Parachute (降落伞)?” by Richard Bolles. This book has been helping people choose a career since it was first published in nineteen seventy.
Some experts also help people find jobs. Susan W. Miller owns a company called California Career Services in Los Angeles.
