你了解“禁酒令”吗？“喝酒不开车，开车不喝酒”。法律规定：醉酒驾车要负刑事责任。 Two policemen stopped Andrew Kershaw in his sports car one night, because he was speeding in the street of the town. The young man was very drunk. He knew he was in trouble, so he decided to make fun of them. He was a law student at the university, so he knew the law very well, better than most people.
When the policemen came to his car, Andrew asked one of the policemen to write down in his notebook everything they said. The policemen had to do this because it is the law, although people usually don?t know it. The policemen tested Andrew?too much alcohol in his blood. This all took a long time because the policemen had to write down everything that he and the policemen said.
In the end, by law, the policemen had to ask Andrew if he wanted to say anything. Andrew decided that he had two things to say and the policemen had to write down. The first thing was “Please don?t hit me again, officer”. And the second thing was “Does the other officer want ￡5, too?” Of course, the poor policeman had to read this in court(法庭), in front of the judge , and he was very embarrassed. Andrew, who was in court, thought it was very funny, until the judge took away his license for a year and fined（罚款）him ￡100, ￡90 for drunk driving, and ￡10 for his rudeness! ( )31.

For some kids, old photos and baby pictures are embarrassing. For others, they are cherished keepsakes (纪念品). But for thousands of children living in orphanages (孤儿院) worldwide, these records of the past simply don't exist. Either the kids' parents weren't around to take photos, or the pictures have been lost. Whatever the reason is, the Memory Project is giving orphans a lasting document of their youth.
Over the last two years, the Memory Project has provided hand-painted portraits (肖像)for more than 4,000 children living in orphanages in poor countries. Ben Schumaker, 24, got the idea when he was visiting an orphanage in Guatemala in Central America. But he's not creating the portraits alone. Students in hundreds of high school art classes across the U.S. paint them using photos sent from the orphanages.
Schumaker believes that the artists benefit from the project as much as the orphans do. “There are two purposes of the Memory Project,” he said. “One is to offer a special gift to the child abroad. The other is to help open the eyes of the student who is painting.” Staring into the eyes of another person, Schumaker believes, it creates a real connection. This connection raises awareness in U.S. schools about the needs of the world's poor children. “It's about planting a seed,” he said.
Schumaker is also working on Books of Hope, a project in which students of all ages put together homemade books for children in Uganda and India.He hopes that one day children in Uganda and India will send books to the U.S. “It's important to me to have it be a two-way exchange,” Schumaker says. ( )34. Old photos and baby pictures are clearly unavailable to . A. the kids in rich families B. the kids in common families C. the kids in big families D. the kids without parents
( )35. How can the orphans in Guatemala get a continuing record of their youth? A. By hand-painted portraits that Ben Schumaker painted. B. By the photos the orphanage taken for them.
C. By the photos taken by the U.S. students in high schools. D. By the Memory Project started by Ben Schumaker. ( )36. What does the third paragraph mainly tell us?
A. The special gifts that the world's poor children received. B. The benefits that the Memory Project brings. C. The need of the US schools. D. How to help the orphans.

In the United States, when one becomes rich, he wants people to know it. Even if he does not become very rich, he wants people to think he is. That is what “keeping up with the Joneses” is about. It is the story of someone who tried to look as rich as his neighbors.
The expression was first used in 1913 by a young American called Arthur Momand. He told this story about himself. He began earning $ 125 a week at the age of 23. That was a lot of money in those days. He got married and moved with his wife to a very wealthy neighborhood outside New York City. When he saw that rich people rode horses, Momand went horseback riding every day. When he saw that rich people had servants, Momand and his wife also hired a servant and gave big parties for their new neighbours.
It was like a race, but one could never finish his race because one was always trying to keep up. The race ended for Momand and his wife when they could no longer pay for their new way of life. They moved back to an apartment in New York City.
Momand looked around him and noticed that many people do things just to keep up with rich lifestyle of their neighbors. He saw the funny side of it and started to write a series of short stories. He called it “Keeping up with the Joneses” because “Jones” is a very common name in the United States. “Keeping up with the Joneses” came to mean keeping up with rich lifestyle of the people around you. Momand?s series appeared in different newspapers across the country for over 28 years.
People never seem to get tired of keeping up with the Joneses. And there are “Joneses” in every city of the world. But one must get tired of trying to keep up with the Joneses because no matter what one does, Mr. Jones always seems to be ahead.
( )38. People want to keep up with the Joneses because they ______.
A. hope they can be as rich as their neghbours B. hope their neighbours can learn from them C. want to show or to be thought they are rich D. want to live a rich and comfortable life ( )39. From the text, we know that ______.
A. All the neighbors of Momand like to keep up with the Joneses B. Some of his neighbors like to keep up with rich lifestyles
C. Momand never seems to get tired of keeping up with the Joneses D. Momand became very rich and returned to the wealthy neighborhood
( )40. Arthur Momand used the name “Jones” in his short stories because it is ______.
A. an important name B. a strange name C. his neighbor?s name D. a popular name ( )41. According to the author, ______.
A. it is impossible to keep up with the Joneses B. everybody can become rich and a real Jones C. it is quite different when you become a Jones D. you will have many good neighbours in the USA
As we know, there are differences between western culture and Chinese culture. We can see differences when we pay attention to the way words are used. Let?s look at the words about animals and plants. Most expressions in Chinese about the dog, for example, “a homeless dog”, “a mad dog”, “a running dog” and “a dog catching a mouse”, have negative（消极的）meanings. But in western countries, dogs are thought to be honest and good friends of humans. In English, people use the dog to describe positive（积极的）actions. For example, “you are a lucky dog” means you are a lucky person. And “every dog has its day” means each person has good luck sometimes. To describe a person?s serious illness, they say “sick as a dog”. The word “dog-tired” means very tired. However, Chinese love cats very much. But in western culture, “cat” is often used to describe a woman who is cruel（冷酷的. There are many other examples of how “cat” is used differently as well.
The rose is regarded as a symbol of love in both China and some western countries. People think the rose stands for love, peace, courage and friendship. And the rose is the national flower of England, America and many other countries.
The words about plants and animals are used in positive or negative ways in different cultures. We can learn about many differences in cultures by comparing how some words are used. ( )42. The word “dog” in Chinese usually _______.
A. shows peace B. stands for friendship C. has a negative meaning D. has a positive meaning ( )43. “Every dog has its day.” means “_______”.
