give it to Mother Winters as a . She was the head mistress of our orphanage, who was always with us.

As the tables were not dry from the clear coating, the man told us to wait a few days before taking them

to our dormitories. But I was just so and happy that I couldn’t wait. I dashed out like a carrying my table, smiling from ear to ear.

When I reached the dormitory I placed the little table beside my bed. I was it when Mother

Winters entered. She walked over to the table. Running her hand it, she noticed that it was still wet. ―Were you to bring this home?‖ she asked. ―No, ma’am,‖ I with my head down.

She ordered me to throw the table out and so I did. After she left, I immediately opened the door to get it back. There was stuck all over. I brushed and cried, but it would not come off.

I hid the table in my closet and never it. A year later while cleaning up, I gave the table to Mother Henderson, my houseparent(宿管员), thinking that she would it away. Thirty years later at a reunion, I that Mother Henderson was living nearby, so I drove up to see her. We talked cheerfully for long.

Because of my husband's job, we have never had time to go to places like the pool or the beach together this summer.I've got a lot more comfortable with talking them to other places but taking them both to water still scares me a lot. At six years old Cameron can hardly swim.Sure, he has got all the confidence in the world but he's

lacking in skills. He loves the water and has confidence; in my book that's a sign of disaster. Poor little Logan will be four years old and is just now taking his first swim lessons.

I think that my own inability to swim has made it OK for me not to get the kids swimming. The best I can do is to keep myself alive until help comes, but I know the basics. I guess if it meant saving one of the boys I could probably make it.

As the boys can't swim, I think this will be the summer when they learn.In the past four weeks both of the boys have been taking swim lessons. Monday through Thursday, I spend an hour or so watching them learn how to avoid drowning. .

I have to give them both credit; they have improved ten - fold in the short amount of time. Cameron can actually swim. He doesn't have the endurance yet and the facts show that he has to work harder than the other kids but he's getting it. Logan cried for the first few lessons and really wanted nothing to do with swimming, He is not as confident as his older brother but he is getting more comfortable in the water. For a kid who has hardly spent any time in water outside of the bathtub, he is doing an amazing job. 71. A.the writer 18 out of work B.the writer cannot look after two kids C.the writer's husband is busy D.the writer has an unhappy family

72. What does Cameron think of swimming? A.He doesn't like swimming at all. B.He is overly confident about swimming. C.He expects to swim in summer the most. D.He thinks it's the best way to exercise.

73.What do we know about the writer’ swimming skills? A.The writer is a great swimmer. B.The writer can only swim slowly. C.The writer doesn't know anything about swimming. D.The writer can't swim very well.

74. How long do the children have swim lessons every week? A.For about an hour. B. For about seven hours. C.For about four hours. D.For about eight hours. 75. A.the benefits of swimming B.the children's progress in swimming C.the children's attitudes to swimming D.the difficulties of swimming


Millions of people are using cell phones today.In many places it is actually considered unusual not to use one.In many countries, cell phones are very popular with young people.They find that the phones are more than a means of communication—having a mobile phone shows that they are cool and connected.

The explosions around the world in mobile phone use make some health professional worried.Some doctors are concerned that in the future many people may suffer health problems from the use of mobile phones.In England, there has been a serous debate about this issue.Mobile phone companies are worried about the negative publicity of such ideas.They say that there is no proof that mobile phones are bad for your health.

On the other hand, why do some medical studies show changes in the brain cells of some people who use equipment.In one case, a traveling salesman had to retire at a young age because of serious memory loss.He couldn’t remember even simple tasks.He would often forget the name of his own son.This man used to talk on his mobile phone for about six hours a day, every day of his working week, for a couple of years.His family doctor blamed his mobile phone use, but his employer’s doctor didn’t agree.

What is it that makes mobile phones potentially harmful? The answer is radiation.High-tech machines can detect very small amounts of radiation from mobile phones.Mobile phone companies agree that there is some radiation, but they say the amount is too small to worry about.

As the discussion about their safety continues, it appears that it’s best to use mobile phones less often.Use your regular phone if you want to talk for a long time.Use your mobile phone only when you really need it.Mobile phones can be very useful and convenient, especially in emergencies.In the future, mobile phones may have a warning label that says they are bad for your health.So for now, it’s wise not to use your mobile phone too often .

76.People buy cell phones for the following reasons except that . A.they’re popular B.they’re convenient C.they’re useful D.they’re cheap 77.The world ―detected‖ in paragraph 3 could be best replaced by A.discovered B.removed C.cured D.caused 78. .

79.. A deny the existence of mobile phone radiation B.develop new technology to reduce mobile phone radiation C.hold that the amount of radiation is too small to worry about D.try to prove that mobile phones are not harmful to health

80.The writer’s purpose of writing this article is to advise people A .to buy mobile phones B.to use mobile phones less often C.to update regular phones D.to stop using mobile phones


A survey was conducted in Shanghai where interviewees were asked if they wanted to be a factory

worker.One percent of all people interviewed said "YES." Wang Hongjun, a technician, said "YES" , raising his voice for dramatic effect.But I can tell you, only a small part of that l percent are telling the truth.

I' ve met colorful people like Wang all over China.They are cynical (玩世不恭的)yet warmhearted, plain spoken but smart.And many of them are confined (局限于)to work in factories. Wang is a top technician but also represents manual factory workers, who are China's most important natural resource.Their energy powering China's economic boom, and their muscle is turning the wheel of the world’s factory.

But does their unskilled labor give their life meaning? At school, did they tell their friends:―When I grow up I want to work in a factory making socks?‖ Did you?

Factory work has always been a stepping-stone from farm life to the city and a modern life.It's been happening for centuries, but today, with our space-age technology, it's outdated.Earning l,200 yuan ($ 169)per month working in a factory is better than that on a farm, but as Wang points out, it's not a dream career.There should be better ways to earn your rice.

Many modern factories no longer have production line workers.Robots do the assembly(装配).People just do the monitoring.In this age of technology, in which China is now working smarter and not just harder, why are people still standing in production lines?

But life is cheap in China.So why not continue to exploit the low-cost labor situation and keep the economy growing fast? some entrepreneurs(企业家、创业者) may ask. But have these businessmen ever labored in a factory?

81.How many people surveyed really Like to be factory workers? A.One percent. B.Only a small part. C.Only a small part of that one percent. D.The writer didn't mention it. 82.Which is NOT the writer's opinion of factory workers? A.Cynical. B.Unimportant. C.Warmhearted. D.Plain spoken. 83.. A.difficult to get along with

B.humorous but serious C.cynical but warmhearted, plain spoken but smart D.full of energy but doesn't want to work hard

84.Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage? A.Factory workers make contributions to China's economic boom. B.Working in a factory is better than that on a farm.

C.Factory workers are satisfied with their living conditions. D.. 85.to begin the passage. A.a lot of figures B.many examples C.some dialogue D.the result of a survey


Everyone could make impulse and buy something unnecessary.Then how to avoid it'? The best way is to just keep your hands away from tempting products.According to new research, individuals who touch possible items in stores are more likely to have an increased desire to purchase them than those who keep their hands off the products.

Suzanne Shu and Joann Peck, marketing professors at the University of Wisconsin's business school conducted studies on the connection between touch and feelings of ownership and the effect of perceived(感觉)ownership on the value placed on an object. For one of the experiments, the experts placed two products, a Slinky toy and a coffee mug(杯子)in front of the volunteers who were undergraduate students.About half of the participants were allowed to touch the products, while the other half were asked not to touch them, The volunteers then were asked to express their sense of ownership of the products and to report, how much money they were willing to pay for each. The results showed that those students who were allowed to touch the objects reported significant increased levels of perceived ownership.They also expressed a desire to pay more money to obtain the products.

The investigators also discovered that a sense of very pleasant feelings when touching products, determined how much money consumers were willing to pay.However, if the object did riot feel pleasant to the touch, it significantly decreased the amount the buyers were willing to pay.

Researchers said that many stores have already followed the right path.But what can be done while shopping online, when touching of an item is not possible? In this case, the experts say, just picturing in mind that they are touching it and then owning it, will cause greater feelings of ownership, and thus the consumers will be more likely to make a purchase.

When you touch an object, you immediately feel some kind of a connection to it, according to the researchers. That connection stirs up(唤起)an emotional reaction. And that emotion can make people buy Something they would never even consider buying if they had not touched it. 86.How does the author develop the text ? A.By drawing a conclusion through research. B.By providing typical examples. C.By comparing opinions from different fields. D.By presenting n cause and analyzing its effects. 87.Which of the following was found in the research? A.Shoppers cannot resist the temptation when they meet things they like. B.If you are not to spend money, it's less possible for you to touch the product. C.Touching a product affects the customer' s feelings of desire for it. D.The longer you touch the goods, the more desire you have to own them. 88.What would happen to them when people do online shopping?

A.They will particularly want to touch the products advertised on the Internet

B.They just imagine its ownership and simply evaluate the objects in their minds C.they desire to possess it and do not care how much money they would pay

D.People's imaginable ownership resulted in greatly higher valuations of the products 89. A.stores have used, the method of allowing customers to touch products B.a Slinky toy and a coffee mug were used to attract the participants' attention

C.people won't buy the items if they don't like them even if they've touched them

D.differences lie between the students who touched the products and those who did not 90.What led the researchers to conduct this study? A.To satisfy customers' social needs when shopping. B.To illustrate the connection between touch and feelings of ownership. C.To share their good ideas about 8voiding impulsive consumption. D.To develop.marketing strategies for trade companies.


Michelle Obama made a daring decision to return to the same designer who created her Inaugural (就职)Ball dress four years ago --- and the risk paid off.

The First Lady looked extremely attractive in a thin, sweeping, and ruby-colored dress by designer Jason Wu. She teamed the dramatic dress with heels by Jimmy Choo and a diamond ring by Kimberly McDonald.

She surprised the fashion establishment by returning to a Wu design which had been the custom made for her.

Four years ago at her first Inauguration Ball, Michelle shimmered(熠熠生辉)in an off-white, one-shouldered floor-length dress by the designer.

Wu, who was 26 at the time and had only been working in fashion for three years, saw his career take off after the First Lady's surprise decision to wear one of his dresses.

He said at the time that he was unaware she had chosen the dress and had been watching at home on his couch and eating pizza when she appeared.

After her 2013 decision, Wu told Women's Wear Daily: ―Mrs Obama likes to keep her secrets. She fooled me again.‖

Wu released a women's clothing and accessories(装饰品)collection at Target last year and continues to be popular with the First Lady for official engagements.

The sleeveless, cross-halter neck dress with low-cut back flattered(突出)49-year-old Michelle's arms and neat waist.

It had been created especially for her by Wu and was a departure from the dark and plain colour tone she stuck to at earlier inauguration events.

Mrs Obama's new hairstyle -- she had bangs(美发沙龙)cut on her birthday last week had been loosely tousled(蓬松的)for the special night.

Vice-President Joe Biden's wife Jill also looked attractive in a blue silk dress by Vera Wang at the Inauguration Ball.

[1] More than 40 million Americans move each year, but not always by choice. Whether you relocate because of a new job or school for you or your spouse, for a lower cost of living, or for better opportunities, adjusting to life in a new place can be scary and difficult—especially when you’re not in love with your new city. Here are some tips on how to make the most of your relocation and find happiness in your new home.

[2] Treat it as an adventure

Living in a new place is a great opportunity to experience new things and to grow as a person. So stay positive, and get out there and explore! Sample the local cuisine. Visit landmarks and museums. Try local activities that weren’t available or popular in your former city, such as skiing if you came from a beach town or surfing if you lived in the mountains. You may discover a talent or interest you never knew you had.

[3] Get involved

Attend local events that interest you. Visit the weekly farmer’s market or the neighborhood yard sale.

Volunteer. Take a class. Join a sports league. All of these things will help you meet people and feel connected to your new town.

[4] Locate the necessities

Driving, riding, or walking around your new neighborhood is the best way to learn where everything is. So head out and take note of the nearest supermarket, pharmacy, post office, library, etc.

[5] Keep pieces of your old home

To keep from getting too homesick, subscribe to your former city magazine or newspaper. Display photos of or souvenirs from your favorite places in your old town. Hang decorations from your former home. Just don’t go overboard—hanging on to too much from your past will keep you from moving forward and really enjoying your new home.

[6] _________

takes time to get to know a new place, so don’t expect to feel comfortable right away. Give yourself time to adjust. To help the process and to meet new people, find a support group near you at Just Moved.org. 96. What does the passage mainly talk about? (no more than 15 words.)

97. What does the underlined word ―it‖ in the last paragraph refer to? (no more than 7 words)

98. According to the passage, what can you do to learn where everything is?( no more than 5 words) 79. Fill the blank with proper words. (no more than 5 words)
