“No man is an island” is a well-known line from John Donne’s Devotion. It was written more than three hundred years ago. Even now people still agree with him. Without other people, life will become empty and sad. We all need to have friends.
For some of us, although making friends is not difficult, feeling shy, we may not want to make the first move. It is also difficult at times to keep the friends we already have.
There are many books about friendship, but Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People, written in 1936, is the most famous. This “how to” book about getting along with other people became a best seller. It was later put into 28 languages.
Dale Carnegie’s advice seems to be simple, but can his advice help you? Do you need to change the way you act? Here is the list of advice from his book: ? Be friendly and polite.
Always greet with a smile. Begin with “Excuse me” or “Would you please” when you want to ask somebody. Remember to say “Thank you” and try to be as helpful as you can. ? Go out of your way to be nice.
Find some time to do special things for other people. Making some soup for a sick neighbour may seem like a little thing to you, but it will make your neighbor feel a lot better. ? Remember names.
They say that the sweetest music to a person’s ears is the sound of his or her own name. ? Be open-minded.
Try to understand other people’s ways and ideas and learn something from them. ? Listen patiently.
When someone is talking to you, look at him or her, listen carefully and say something when necessary.
( ) 81. The underlined sentence “” means “_____________”.
A. No one can live a hard life. B. No one can live without difficulty. C. No one can live alone. D. No one can live on an island.

Have you ever stayed in a hotel? Most Chinese hotels often provide guests(客人) with things like disposable (一次性的) toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo and slippers. Many guests like the idea because they don't have to bring their own. But, if you travel to Beijing, remember to bring your own things. Starting from June, some hotels in Beijing will no longer provide guests with these disposables. They want to ask people to use less disposable things.
Many disposable things are made of plastic. People throw them away after only using them once. It is a waste of natural resources (资源) and is very bad for the environment. Do you know, one Chinese person makes as much as 400kg of waste a year! Most of that waste comes from disposable things. In Beijing, people throw away about 19,000 tons of plastic bags and 1,320 tons of plastic lunch bowls every year! Plastic can take between 100 and 400 years to break down. So the less plastic we throw out, the better. So, wherever you travel, bring your own things and use them again and again.
Back at home and school, you can also do something to make our world a better place. Try to do these things in your daily life: Use cloth shopping bags, not plastic ones. After using a plastic bag, wash it out and let it dry. Then you can use it over and over again. Do not use paper cups. At your school dining-room, use your own bowl and chopsticks instead of disposable ones.
To protect our environment and our home, it is very necessary and important for us to save natural resources.
( )86. Why do many hotels provide guests with some disposable things?
A. Let their guests be convenient during their traveling. B. Hope their guests use less disposable things.
C. Wish their guests to save money. D. Want their guests to use more disposable things.
( ) 87. Some Beijing hotels will no longer provide guests with _________.
A. cheap food and drink B. disposable things C. good service D. free TV programs
( ) 88. Which of the following is NOT true?
A. Many disposable things are made of plastic.
B. Throwing disposable things away is a waste of natural resources.
C. Plastic is very bad for the environment. D. Plastic breaks down easily.
( ) 89. What can we do to make our world a better place at home and school?
A. Use shopping bags made of plastic. B. Do not throw away paper cups. C. Use disposable plates, bowls and chopsticks.
D. Don’t forget to reuse daily necessities（日用品）. ( ) 90. We can tell from the story that ________.
A. people don't like disposable things at allB. we can't use paper or plastic bowls at school C. we should use less plastic things and protect our environment
D. hotels won't provide disposable things because they want to save money
The Internet has become part of teenagers’(十几岁的) life. A new report on 3,375 students aged from 10 to 18 in seven Chinese cities found that 38 percent of them believe they use the Internet often.
While most of them get useful information and use the Internet to help in their studies, some are not using it in a good way. Many are playing online games too much. A few even visit websites(网址) they should not look at. Hong Ying, a teacher from Beijing Yinghua Middle School warns(警告) that bad things can happen if young people spend too much time on the Internet. She had a student who used to be good at school. But then he started visiting unhealthy websites. He went mad, cheated(欺骗) a girl and was taken away by the police.
In order to help young people use the Internet in a good way, a textbook on good Internet behavior(行为) has started to be used in some Shanghai middle schools this term. The book uses real examples to teach students about good ways of using the Internet. The book gives useful advice such as to read news or to find helpful information to study. Teachers and parents all think the book is a very good idea.
Hong said the book will be a guide for teens to use the Internet. She believes it will keep students away from bad sites.
“Many students are using the Internet without guidance(指导) from their parents,”she said, “The book will teach students how to be a good person in the online world.”
