Learning experiences happen to us in our lives. Not long ago, I had one that l would like to share. I was going to Marblehead with my sailboat team. The team was racing down the highway we realized we were hungry. Luckily, we saw a rest area ahead. I had a brand-new $ 20 bill. I was so because I had never had that kind of cash before. But spending it on food seemed like throwing it away. We all rushed into the pizza line. I got a pizza and a drink, and walked to my table. About halfway through the meal, I I had not handed any money to the cashier (收银员). I had just walked out, and had noticed. I felt terrible.
My conscience (良心) opened its mouth and swallowed (吞) me in one big bite. I couldn’t over it. I just couldn’t go back to the cashier and pay for my stolen pizza. I was so upset (不安的) that I to give myself the pleasure of an ice cream for that someone would say, ―Hey, Jeff. Why don’t you use the change from the pizza instead of that nice, new $ 20 bill?‖ I was not so of my cash now.
For the next two years, whenever the ―pizza thing‖ came into my mind, I would say to myself, ―Don’t think about it...‖
I have learned two things from this too stupid to have a free pizza. But the real lesson is that even if you get away from what you have done, your conscience will you.
This goes with the saying, ―A coward (懦夫) dies a thousand deaths, a hero dies one.‖ I was a coward and have felt terrible that at least a thousand times. If I had been a ―hero‖ and gone back to pay for the pizza, I would have felt a little uncomfortable about it only once, or maybe twice. ( ) 16. A. before ( ) 17. A. excited ( ) 19. A. noticed ( ) 20.

No one is glad to hear that his body has to be cut open by a surgeon (外科医生) and part of it taken out. Today, however, we needn’t worry about feeling pain during the operation. The sick person falls into a kind of sleep, and when he awakes, the operation is finished. But these happy conditions are fairly new. It is not many years since a man who had to have operation felt all its pain.
Long ago, operation had usually to be done while the sick man could feel everything. The sick man had to be held down on a table by force while the doctors did their best for him. He could feel all the pain if his leg or arm was being cut off, and his fearful cries filled the room and the hearts of those who watched.
Soon after 1770, Joseph Priestley discovered a gas which is now called ―laughing gas‖. Laughing gas became known in America. Young men and women went to parties to try it. Most of them spent their time laughing, but one man at a party, Horace Wells, noticed that people didn’t seem to feel pain when they were using this gas. He decided to make an experiment on himself. He asked a friend to help him. Wells took some of the gas, and his friend pulled out one of Well’s teeth. Wells felt no pain at all.
As he didn’t know enough about laughing gas, he gave a man less gas than he should have. The man cried out with pain when his tooth was being pulled out.
Wells tried again, but this time he gave too much of the gas, and the man died. Wells never forgot this terrible event.
( )28. It is＿＿＿＿since a man being operated felt all the pain.
A. a few more years
C. few years
B. not long D. two thousand years B. could not want anything D. could do anything B. felt very comfortable D. would die
Is the world warming up? According to many reports, the answer is yes. Eleven of the hottest years since 1850 appeared between 1995 and 2006. Last year, the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported the earth was about 0.75℃ warmer than it was in 1850. While this doesn’t sound like a lot, a small difference in average (平均) temperature can make a big difference in climate (气候). During the last Ice Age, the planet was only about five degrees colder than now.
It’s all about the speed at which temperatures are changing. In the past, temperatures moved up or down step by step. But in the 20th century, especially since 1976, temperatures have likely risen more quickly than during any century in the last 1,000 years. Warming may bring improved harvests (收获) to northern countries such as Canada and Russia. However, many species (物种) won’t like these conditions. They begin moving towards cooler places and cause lots of trouble to human world.
The IPCC reported that human activity is very likely responsible (负责任的), by increasing the greenhouse effect (效应). Some gases cause the air to take in heat energy. Without the greenhouse effect, the earth’s average temperature would be -18℃ rather than the present comfortable 14.6 degrees. The main greenhouse gases are carbon dioxide (CO2), water vapor (水蒸汽) and some other gases. Burning oil, coal and waste adds to the carbon dioxide, and it has increased 35% since 1850.
Many researchers have found that natural forces alone don’t explain the temperature increases over the last 30 to 40 years. Their study shows that as carbon dioxide goes up, temperatures will rise too. But some ( ) 29. Long ago, when the sick man was operated on, he ＿＿＿＿. A. could feel nothing C. could feel all the pain A. felt nothing ( ) 30. If a man took less laughing gas than he should have when an operation went on, he ＿＿＿. C. still felt pain
scientists don’t agree. They think the effect of human produced greenhouse gases is very small compared to the normal changes that the climate causes.
When asked whether humans are causing the world warming, Carl Wunsch, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology says, ―It seems very likely from what I’ve seen. Is it 100% sure? No. There’s something to do with natural changes.‖ Does that mean we should have a ―wait and see‖ attitude (态度)? Not according to Wunsch. He points out we buy house insurance (保险) not because we are sure our homes will be on fire, but because it’s a danger we’d rather avoid.

Sometimes, people are not clear about what kind of food is healthy and what kind of food may do harm to our health. The USDA has prepared a food guide to help people learn about which kind of food is the healthiest to eat. The food guide describes six main food groups: meat (like fish and chicken), dairy (like milk and cheese), grains (like bread and rice), fruit and vegetables. The last group is fats and sweets. The USDA also suggests how much of each food group is healthy to eat daily. Though this guide was prepared by the US government, it is very useful for people all over the world.
As a result of years of study, we know that too much animal fat is bad for our health. For example, Americans eat a lot of meat and only a small amount (量) of grains, fruit and vegetables. Because of the way they eat, they have a high rate (率) of cancer (癌症) and heart disease. In Japan, people eat large amount of grains and very little meat. The Japanese also have a very low rate of cancer and heart disease. The Japanese live longer than anyone else in the world. However, when Japanese people move to the US, the rate of heart disease and cancer goes up as their eating habit changes. And as hamburgers, ice creams and other high-fat foods become popular in Japan, the rate of heart disease and cancer is going up there as well. People are also eating more meat and dairy food in other countries, in which the disease rate is going up alone with the change of the way people eat. Doctors everywhere suggest people eat more grains, fruit and vegetables and
less meat and dairy food.
Eating healthily is important for children as well as their parents. When parents have poor eating habits, their children usually do, too. After all, children eat the same way as their parents. When parents eat healthy food, the children will learn to enjoy it, too. Then they will develop good eating habits. Doctors suggest parents give their children healthier food such as fruit, vegetables and juice.
Everyone wants to live a long, healthy life. We know that the food we eat affects (影响) us in different ways. For example, doctors believe that fruit and vegetables can really protect people from many different diseases. On the other hand, animal fat can cause (引起) diseases. We can change our eating habits now and enjoy many years of healthy living.

In late April, 33-year-old Li Yang climbed into her new car, Suzuki Alto and headed west. She ―just kept going to see how far I could get by myself.‖ Six days and 2575 kilometers later, she arrived in Lhasa, the Tibetan capital. Happy and tired, she wrote an article and put it on the Internet after she had a good sleep, talking about her travel experience to Lhasa with photos.
As people become richer and richer, new car prices are falling down quickly, and the government builds new ways, many Chinese people think it is enjoyable to have their own cars instead of bicycles. The large number of cars has started a new revolution, changing the life and society just like what happened in America 50 years ago.
In Shanghai, more and more cars have appeared on the roads since 2002. At rush hour, a taxi ride from one side of Huangpu River to the other can take more than an hour.

Male: I need some help to study for my test. Will you quiz me on these inventors please!
Female: Okay. I haven’t got long though. Give me your notes. Right, first of all – George Washington Carver. What did he achieve, and in what year was he born?
Male: Um … that’s a hard one to start with! Oh, yes, peanuts – he was an agricultural chemist. He thought of lots of uses for peanuts, so they became an important crop. Um, he was born in 1864. Female: Great, that was quick. Next, someone who lived a long time ago. What do you know about Gutenberg?
Male: Oh that’s easy. He invented the printing press. Um … 1394 was his birth year, I think. The numbers add up to 17 which is how old I am, so I can remember that one!
Female: Excellent. How about Henry Ford?
Male: Oh, the Model T Ford car – he developed an assembly line for making cars. I wish I had one – black, of course! He was born in … 1860, was it?
Female: Close. It was 1863. Okay, one more and I have to go to class. Tell me about Thomas Savery …
Male: Aah, the steam engine … um, that was 1698, but I can’t remember when he was born.
