Do you believe that there might be life on other planets? Would

you like to be the first “Earthling” to get in touch with an alien?

Well, you can start your search from home. All you need is a

computer and the Internet, and you can join the project of the

US-based National Aeronautics and Space

Administration(NASA).

NASA started the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence

(SETI) project eight years ago. Its goal is to examine the radio

signals (信号) from nearby stars. Researchers believe that a large number of stars in the universe could have planets orbiting (circling) around them. And they want to know if these planets have conditions suitable for life forms.

How does the project work? There is a huge radio telescope with a large bowl-shaped dish at Arecibo, Puerto Rico. It catches radio signals which are then fed in to SETI computers. The researchers have to study thousands of radio signals daily. They are looking for signals whose patterns (模式)would show the existence(存在)of hydrogen or water molecules that are

6

承思教育 中考专训 necessary for life on Earth. They could be at it for years before showing a single positive result! Of course, even the researchers know that they cannot do a fast job on their own. So they want as many helpers as possible. Even you ! To join search, just download SETI’s free software (SETI @home). What happens next is fun. While you are away from your computer, the SETI program in your computer downloads the information on radio signals received by the radio telescope. It studies the information and send the result back to the research center.

There are other benefits too of having the SETI project software in your computer. When you leave your computer unattended, instead of seeing the usual screen

saver, you can feast your eyes on an amazing 3-D chart on the screen.

This shows that your computer is busy studying SETI data and

searching for signs of alien life!

More than 1824500 people around the world are currently in the

program and more are joining in every day. It’s slim chance, but

wouldn’t it be fantastic if your computer were to be the first to

discover an alien signal!

53. Why do researchers examine the radio signals from nearby stars?

A. They plan to help people who live on the stars.

B. They need to make sure that the stars have planets.

C. They have to keep in touch with the aliens on the stars.

D. They wonder if the stars’ planets are suitable for life forms.

54. What does a helper’s computer do in the research?

A. It finds the radio signals. B. It looks for other planets.

C. It shows a positive result. D. It studies the information.

55. What’s the writer’s purpose in writing the passage?

A. To prove the value of a research. B. To invite people to join a project.

C. To suggest the existence of aliens. D. To advise people to study planets.

In all the world’s cultures, people sing, play instruments, and

celebrate with music. It plays such an important role in our lives that

whole fields work hard at its study, including one looking at the biology

of music. Experts are finding that because of the way our brains

process(处理) music, learning to play an instrument or just listening

to music can have a wide range of benefits.

Music education has received a lot of attention. Learning to play an

instrument can help children improve math, science, and language skills.

One study in Canada tracked (追踪)children’s IQ scores for nine months, discovering that children who studied music had the biggest test score improvements. The secret may lie in the way reading music and playing notes uses several areas of the brain, helping develop our ability to learn school subjects.

Music is also used for medical purposes, such as the treatment of diseases which affect memory. Scientists explain that one area near the forehead connects music with memories. That’s why an old song can remind you of something that happened years ago. For patients suffering from certain diseases, listening to music can help unlock memories by building up musical pathways to memories.

Studies of the music-brain connection often concentrate on classical music, since it activates both the left and right sides of brains. One study found the brain activity was the highest during the short breaks between the movements of a piece of music. During each break, the person’s brain predicted what would come next, while organizing what he had just heard. This process is similar to the way our brain organizes information. It may explain why classical music can help improve memory. Some people take the music- brain connection to another level by listening to personalized “brain music.” which can help a person concentrate and prepare for a difficult task. born with the ability to learn music, just as we all have the skills to learn language. After all, children without any training often make up songs while playing. With the evidence of music’s benefits pouring in, it’s no wonder some countries make music study a part of their education systems. People are realizing that music is more than just a form of entertainment.

56. In the study in Canada, who had the biggest IQ score increase?

A. The children who did well in science.

B. The children who had good memories.

C. The children who had fun learning languages.

D. The children who studied music for some time.

57. The writer probably agrees that .

A. we get a lot from teaching children to make up songs.

B. it takes steps to make full use of music-brain connection.

C. memory can be improved by training to organize information

D. music treatment helps build up unlocked pathways to memories

58. What does the underlined sentence in the last paragraph mean?

A. It’s great that our brains go well with music.

B. It’s wonderful for us to listen to brain music.

C. It’s surprising that music makes our brains active.

D. It’s fantastic to know how brains work with music.

59. What may be the best title for the passage?

A. Music and Memory B. Music and the Mind

C. The Biology of Music D. The Benefits of Music

Adopt a Highway

Hello. I’m Jane. My class wants to work together to help the community. This program brings people together to pick up little along the roads. We think it would be a great idea for students to join the program and adopt a highway.

Adopting a highway is not like adopting a pet. When a highway is adopted, only part of the highway is cared for by a group of people. Each group gets its own sign that has the name of the group printed on it. The sign is put up alongside the road. This sign lets drivers know who is keeping that area of the road clean.

The program is a great way for people to help their community look nicer. This saves money. Finally, people may try harder to keep roads clean.

If you want to feel great and keep our roads clean, please come with your parents to the meeting next week and try to pick an area to adopt and clean up.

八、阅读短文,根据短文内容回答问题。(共10分,每小题2分)

When we want to find out what the weather will be like tomorrow, we usually turn on the TV. But people also needed to forecast (predict) the weather before they had TV. How did they do it in the past? They’d find an outdoor space, look up, look around, and listen.

Look UP

Red sky at night, sailor’s delight!

Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning!

This weather poem was written a long time ago, but it still works

today. Weather in many parts of the wold moves from west to east.

Whatever weather is in the weat tonight will probably be with us

tomorrow. So a red sky at night, as the sun is setting, usually means a

sunny day for the next day.

Look Around

Animals, insects, and plants are natural weather forecasters.

When a summer storm is coming , you may notice that dogs, cows

and horses grow restless. Theses animals don’t have some mysterious

sixth sense, but they do have super-sensitive hearing. Scientists think

the animals can forecast thunderstorms (雷雨)because they can hear

the sound waves(声波)made by them many miles away.

When leaves show their undersides, be very certain, rain happens.

Listen

If you hear a cricket, it can tell you the exact temperature. Just

count its chirps (啾啾声) for fourteen seconds and then add forty.

This will give you the Fahrenheit temperature of the cricket within a

very few degrees. Since crickets are cold-blooded, the temperature

of the cricket is about the same as the air around it.

So learn to predict the weather the way people did in the past.

Get outside, look up, look around, and listen. Soon you’ll be your very own weather forecaster.

64. Did people need to forecast the weather before they had TV?

65. What does a red sky at night mean for the next day?

66.Why can animals forecast thunderstorms?

67.How can we know the temperature from a cricket?

68. What does the passage mainly tell us?
