I fetched my mail as usual. Suddenly a colorful flyer (传单) jumped into my sight. In the middle was a drawing of an old-fashioned phone, like the one my great-aunt Sara had owned 40 years ago and at the bottom was a phone number. Running my eyes over it, I couldn’t help laughing.

“Is that mail funny?” my ten-year-old daughter, Jenny, asked.

“Not really,” I admitted. “It’s about Wake-up Service. Outdated already.”

“What’s that?” she frowned (皱眉). I explained how, before smart-phones, people sometimes paid someone to wake them with a call.

“Who sent this flyer?” she pressed.

I shook my head. “Probably someone older and he could use some money.” I said.

Her eyes lit up. “Can we order a wake-up?” she asked.

“No kidding. With smart phones at hand, who will need it? And it’s no cheap at all. $ 2.5 per day.” I picked up the flyer and headed for the recycling bin.

“Wait!” she shouted.

“I feel sorry for the wake-up man, if he needs some money,” she said, tearing up. “Can’t we order?”

I looked at the flyer with its drawing of an old-fashioned phone. I remembered, again, my great-aunt Sara and her old phone. As a kid, I’d visited her over Labor Day? when Jerry Lewis would host his charity (慈善) event for the disabled kids. Aunt Sara would grasp my hand tightly, and then reach for the telephone, dialing the number on the screen. Holding the receiver between us, we’d announce to the operator, “We’d like to help those kids.”

But now here was my own child, showing the same big heart I’d once been encouraged to have, and how could I ignore (不理睬) her? I Googled flyer’s telephone number. The number belonged to a man called Raymond.

??? China on Thursday successfully launched space lab Tiangong-2 into space, meaning another historic step towards building a manned space station around 2020.

Measuring 10.4 meters in length, the tube-like Tiangong-2 is designed to enable two astronauts to live in space for up to 30 days and to receive spaceships.

Once inside Tiangong-2, two astronauts arriving from the Shenzhou-11 spaceship will carry out key experiments related to in-orbit equipment repairs, aerospace medicine, space physics and biology, such as space clocks and solar storm research. The number of experiments carried out by Tiangong-2 will be the highest of any manned space mission (航天任务) so far.

The successful launch of the Tiangong-2, along with the first flight of China’s new generation carrier rocket Long March-7 in June, bodes well for the final stage of China’s three-step manned space plan.

The first step, to send an astronaut into space and return safely, was fulfilled by Yangliwei in the Shenzhou-5 mission in 2003. The second step is developing advanced space flight technologies, including the launch of two space labs. Finally, the third step will be to operate a manned space station.

Once the space lab mission comes to an end, China will start building our own space station, which is planned for completion by around 2020. The Chinese space station will be much smaller than the current International Space Station (ISS), but it can be expanded for scientific research and international cooperation. With the ISS set to retire in 2024, the Chinese station will offer a promising choice, and China will be the only country with a permanent (永久) space station.

1.What do we know about Tiangong-2?

A. It is able to receive spaceships.

B. It sent two astronauts into space.

C. It was launched by Long March-7.

D. It works for international research.

2.What does the underlined phrase “bodes well for” probably mean?

??? Spanish artist Pablo Picasso (1881—1973) is one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. It is said that everything his brush touched turned to gold. But in truth, the value of his work could be worth more than any precious metal. Picasso created more than 20,000 works in his life, including two of the world’s 10 most expensive paintings.

Between 1907 and 1913, Picasso and his colleague(同事) Georges Braque started a revolution(革命) in painting. Before that, paintings were like windows — they were painted to look as if they had depth. You could tell which objects were “close” to you and which objects were “far away”. But Picasso and Braque didn’t want to paint like that any more. To them, a painting wasn’t a window to the world; it was marks and lines on a flat surface. Why, they thought, should an object like a guitar be shown only from one angle (角度)? A guitar can look very different depending on which angle one looks at it from. Their answer was to show all the angles. They broke the guitar up into pieces. Their style of painting is called cubism.

But why did they feel such a need to change things? Well, the world around them was changing, too. Science was turning people’s ideas upside down. Albert Einstein’s theory was proving that what we knew about time and space was wrong. And new political movements like socialism were on the rise. The world was becoming different; artists needed to start seeing and painting it differently.

The famous and terrifying painting Guernica (1937) shows the horror of the bombing(轰炸) of the town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. In the painting, you can actually see the sky falling. Picasso couldn’t have painted it without the skills he learned during his cubist period. Breaking a guitar into pieces was his preparation for showing the world being blown to pieces.

1.What is the article mainly about?

A. The high price of Picasso’s paintings. B. Picasso’s difficulties in career.

C. The popularity of Picasso’s paintings. D. Picasso’s achievements in art.

2.In what way did Picasso and Braque paint?

A. They painted objects with different depths.

B. They made their paintings look like windows.

C. They painted an object from different angles.

D. They broke objects into pieces and painted them.

3.What caused Picasso and Braque to start cubism?

A. Einstein’s theory. B. The changing world.

C. The rising socialism. D. New political movements.

4.The painting Guernica is mentioned to show _______.

A. the themes of Picasso’s paintings B. the anger of Picasso at the war

C. the preparations Picasso made before D. the artistic effect of cubism

??? Basketball is a great sport that is not only fun, but also brings children many benefits in different ways. 1..

Playing basketball has physical benefits. Children are full of energy—they need to move, jump and run constantly. Basketball will allow them to control that energy in a positive way. It’s a full-body sport. 2. Since it’s a fast and dynamic sport, children need to follow the game and the continuous movement of the ball. The ball moves quickly from one side of the court to the other and the kids move at the same pace which helps improve both resistance and speed.

Playing basketball has cognitive (认知的) benefits. Children who practice playing basketball develop skills that help them fight against opponents and move around the court. This sport helps them increase their ability to concentrate. 3. Children will learn to assess surrounding situations and problems that may arise, and then find the best and fastest solution. The fast pace of the game encourages quick decision-making and stimulates their concrete and abstract thinking.

4. Since it’s a team sport, basketball promotes sociability, coexistence and respect among peers. It’s ideal for shy children because they will have to learn to interact with other players. This is important both to get better at the sport and to have more fun. They will also learn important values like cooperation, teamwork and competitiveness.

5. In fact, there are many other benefits. The most important thing is that it’s a very fast and fun sport. This tends to make the vast majority of children enjoy it.

A. Playing basketball just has entertaining benefits.

B Playing basketball has social and emotional advantages.

C. These are not all of the advantages of playing basketball.

D. This means that it strengthens muscles in their whole body.

E. It also makes them more aware of the environment around them.

F. This sport promotes healthy development in children for a number of reasons.

G. However, there are some disadvantages when children keep running on the court.


??? People often feel anonymous (匿名) on the Internet. They believe their browsing behaviors and what they buy or write can be private as they want. In fact, that’s far from true, a new study finds.

Websites usually offer a statement that describes what they may or may not do with data about a user’s activities. You might be attracted to read through that entire document. But be prepared for disappointment. These documents tend to list only a small part of the websites which are allowed to have access to your data. Therefore, it’s impossible for users to make informed judgments about how private their online activities are.

The new research explored the disclosure on data-sharing by 200, 000 websites. These included the Arkansas state government homepage and the Country Music site. The study analyzed how these sites shared data with third parties. Such recipients of your data could be advertisers or companies that make money by selling personal data. The study also examined how those sites had described their policy for protecting the data privacy.

Timothy Libert, who works at Oxford University, studies data privacy. For this analysis, he used a software tool called webXray. It tracked 1.8 million data shared by each of those websites with third-party data collectors. Only 14.8% of those data went to third parties that were named in the sites privacy policies.

Data that were transferred to widely familiar third parties—Google, Facebook and Twitter—were more likely to be leaked than those were transferred to unknown parties. Libert found that 38.3% of data sent to Google had been leaked.

Even if a website listed all of the third parties it shared your data with, users still might never learn how widely their data had been shared. Why? Third parties that receive data can later share those data again. Think of your data now being transmitted to anonymous fourth and fifth parties. Getting online is “sort of like throwing beans in the air,” Libert concludes. “There’s no way to know where your data end up.”

1.What aspect of the websites statements will disappoint people?

A. The length of the documents. B. The reliability of the information.

C. The readability of the contents. D. The accuracy of the language.

2.What does the underlined word “disclosure” in paragraph 3 probably mean?

A. Reveal. B. Money.

C. Disappointment. D. Advertisement.

3.What did Libert find in his study?

A. More than a quarter of data-sharing went to unnamed third parties.

B. The data on the Internet is always kept secret by third parties.

C. Widely familiar third parties could collect users’ data more difficultly.

D. Widely familiar third parties were more likely to leak out users’ online data.

4.What is the best title for the text?

A. Famous websites are no longer safe

B. Private data can no longer be private

C. Data-sharing is becoming very unpopular

D. Large companies make money by selling personal data


??? A new study explores the custom of tipping in the United States. Many Americans give tips to people who perform a job for them, especially workers in the service industry. They pay a little extra to people cutting their hair, driving them across town or serving them a meal at a restaurant.

The researchers found that men give bigger tips to restaurant workers than women. And people who live in the northern US are more generous with tips than those living in the South. People who earn $ 50, 000 or more a year give bigger tips than those who earn less than $50, 000. There is one likely reason: the wealthier Americans have more money to spend.

Michael Lynn is a professor of consumer behavior and marketing at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration in New York. In other words, he knows a lot about the issue of tipping. In earlier surveys, Lynn said he found mixed results on the generosity of men and women when it comes to tipping. In some studies, men gave bigger tips than women. In others, women gave more money.

Lynn’s own research in American restaurants found that men give bigger tips when the restaurant server is a woman and women give more when the server is a man. Tips are very important to service employees. People who work at restaurants often get most of their earnings from tips.

Nationwide, Americans generally tip between 15 to 20 percent at restaurants and leave from $2 to S 10 a day for the people who clean their hotel rooms. Tips of 15 percent of the reading on the meter (计价器) are also common for people who drive taxis.

But here is something to keep in mind. If you are able to give the person serving you a tip or a bigger one than what is expected, your generosity will be welcome. Many service workers do not make much money, and even an extra dollar or two can make a difference in their lives.

1.What is paragraph I mainly about?

A. A study in a restaurant. B. A job offering a lot of tips.

C. The service industry in the US. D. The custom of tipping in the US.

2.What is Lynn’s finding in American restaurants?

A. People give more tips to the opposite sex server.

B. People are always more generous to service employers.

C. Men give the same tips to the women restaurant servers as women.

D. Men always give more tips to the men restaurant servers than women.

3.How much tips do Americans generally pay if the reading on the taximeter is $100?

A. $2. B. $10.

C. $15. D. $20.

4.What is the authors attitude towards tipping?

A. Doubtful. B. Critical.

C. Uncaring. D. Supportive.


??? The woman didn’t like us. We didn’t do anything to offend her and she didn’t know us but that didn’t matter. As new female teachers in the Emirati School, we Westerners greeted her every day. Whenever we saw her, she avoided eye contact with us. Eventually, some of us stopped trying to befriend her.

Well after 16 months in the school, we had a secret pal gifting. I drew her name from the glass jar and that meant she was my secret pal. My role was to buy her a gift and say something about her when we publicly acknowledged who our secret pal was.

I bought her a small rose arrangement and asked someone to write a message on it and then sent it to her room. She was so touched. Next day I sent a bottle of shampoo but I wrote the message in English because she needed to know her secret pal was a Westerner before the day of the “big reveal”. I also sent her a fragrant candle.

I had brought a few gifts from Ireland when I returned to the Middle East in September. I decided to gift her a silver coloured bangle.

Then came the day of the “big reveal”. We all gathered in the staff meeting room and everyone was excited. The host said, “Several days ago, when you received your gift, you wrote a few kind words about your secret pal and passed the gift to them.” She taught music in the school so I said, “My secret pal is someone who brings music to our ears every day of the week.” I didn’t even need to say her name because everyone knew exactly who I meant.

She came forward with a huge warm smile. She hugged me and kissed me on both cheeks and graciously accepted my gifts. I think everyone’s understanding of things is subjective, so we should have more communication with people around us.

1.How did the woman respond to the Westerners greetings?

A. She blamed them. B. She kept away from seeing their eyes.

C. She treated them kindly. D. She avoided meeting them again.

2.What was the author supposed to do after knowing the name of her secret friend?

A. Prepare a gift for her. B. Write a speech about her.

C. Find out who it is. D. Chat with her.

3.Why did the author write the message in English in paragraph 3?

A. To show other teachers her identity.

B. To teach the woman some English.

C. To let the woman know her nationality.

D. To make other teachers better understand her intention.

4.What was the woman’s attitude towards the author at last?

A. Friendly. B. Doubtful.

C. Regretful. D. Forgiving.

Apologize immediately.A sincere apology can go a long way because you will prove to everyone that you value their thoughts about you.Tell the people that you didn’t intend to offend(冒犯)them and that you wish to correct the situation.Explain the reasons why you acted the way you did in your apology.2.Otherwise,it will make others feel uncomfortable that you keep bringing up the past.

Use humor.When you are around the people you made a bad impression in front of,play a small joke on yourself.Once they know you are not afraid to laugh at yourself,it can break up some of the tension.Remember to only direct humor at yourself.3.

●Do not make assumptions.After you have made a bad impression,it can be easy to assume that everyone thinks the worst of you.4.Instead of assuming what someone thinks about you,explain to her that you feel ashamed about how you acted and ask him how your behavior affected him.

5.In order to overcome a bad first impression,your words and actions in the time to come must be consistently good.With enough time and patience,gaining trust and changing wrong beliefs is possible.

A.Be careful not to overdo it.

B.Pay attention to future behavior.

C.First impressions are usually long-lasting.

D.However,things aren’t always as bad as they seem.

E.That way you can avoid any more feelings of discomfort.

F.So it’s hard to erase a bad first impression from someone’s mind.

G.Be mindful of your surroundings and sensitive in what you say to others.


??? China plans to launch 156 small satellites by 2025 toprovide Internet services in low signal areas and placeswith adverse natural environment, according toChinaAerospace Science and Industry Corporation(CASIC).

Due to environmental conditionsof deserts,mountains and seas, half of the world's population has noaccess to the Internet, and the information deficiencyhamperslocal development.

It will be China's first broadband Internet accesssystem with small satellites hovering in low orbit, whichwill also help meet the needs of commercial space development.

The project, named Hongyun, plans to send the firstsatellite by 2019, and launch four more by 2020. By theend of 2025, CASIC plans to have all of the 156 satellites in operation.

The Hongyun Proiect, which focuses on communication,remote sensing and navigation, can offer communicationand Internet services for China and less-developed 3countries with reduced latency. Meanwhile, the projectcan also benefit emergency communication, sensor data collection and remote control of unmanned equipment.

Currently, international maritime satellites are widely used in communications in mountainous areas and airplanes, but those satellites, 36, 000 kilometers abovethe Earth, have time and signal delay as well as high cost for providing services.

The small satellites sent by the Hongyun Project will hover in low orbits only hundreds of kilometers to 1, 000 kilometers above the Earth, and thus could improve the Internet access. However, the low orbit satellites may face challenges in power supply, as they need more energyto reduce the influence of air-resistance compared to highorbit satellites. Experiments are needed to determinewhether solar energy alone is enough.

1.According to the passage, ________________.

A. 156satellites will be launched by the Hongyun Project by 2020

B. international maritime satellites can cause signaldelay

C. The Hongyun Project may not encourage commercialspace development

D. low orbit satellites are currently used widely incommunications in mountainous areas

2.The underlined word “hampers” in Paragraph2 probably refers to ________.

A. accelerates B. determines

C. prevents D. promotes

3.Which of the following is not included in the HongyunProject?

A. Communication and Navigation. B. Remote sensing.

C. Data collection. D. Solar energy.

4.Low orbit satellites need more energy in order to________.

A. provide more accurate data B. improve the Internet access

C. reduce the effect of air-resistance D. face more challenges


??? The idea of turning recycled plastic bottlesinto clothing is not new. During the last five years, a large number of clothing companies, businessesand environmental organizations have started turning plastics into fabric to deal with plastic pollution.But there’s a problem with thismethod. Research now shows that microfibers could be the biggest source of plastic in the sea.

Dr. Mark Browne in Santa Barbara, California, has been studying plastic pollution andmicrofibers for 10 years now. He explains that every time synthetic clothes go into a washing machine, a large number of plastic fibersfall off. Most washing machines can’t collectthese microfibers. So every time the water getsout of a washing machine, microfibers are entering the sewers and finally end up in the sea.

In 2011, Browne wrote a paper stating that asingle piece of synthetic(合成的) clothing can producemorethan 1, 900 fibers per wash. Browne collected samples from seawater and freshwater sites around the world, and used aspecial way toexamine each sample.Hediscovered that every single water samplecontained microfibers.

This is bad news for a number of reasons. Plastic can cause harm to sea life when eaten. Studies have also shown that plastic can absorbother pollutants.

Basedon this evidence, it may seemsurprising that companies and organizations havechosen to turn plastic waste into clothing as anenvironmental“solution.”Even though thescience has been around for a while, Browneexplains that he's had a difficult time gettingcompanies to listen. When he asked well-knownclothing companies to support Benign byDesign—his research project that seeks to getclothes that have a bad effect on humans and theenvironment out of the market, Browne didn’tget a satisfying answer. Only one women’sclothing company, Eileen Fisher, offered Brownefunding.

3.What can be inferred about Browne’s Benignby Design research project?

A. It has achieved great success. B. It hasn’t got anything done.

C. It is known to very few people. D. It is facing some difficulties.

4.What’s the best title for the text?

A. It’s important to learn to recycle

B. It’s never easy to solve pollution problems

C. Recycled plastic clothing: solution orpollution?

D. Are human beings moving forward orbackward?


??? On a flight from Dallas, Texas, to Cincinnati, Ohio, to visit a friend in 2008, event planner Paige Chenault daydreamed about the grand birthday parties she’d throw for her daughter one day. (Paige was five months pregnant at the time.) Then, flipping through a magazine, she saw a photo of an impoverished Haitian boy, skinny. “I thought, this kid has nothing,” Paige says.

The image stayed with her, andshe resolved to do something to help. “I decided I would use my talents to throw birthday parties for homeless kids,” Paige says. For the next four years, Paige and her husband, Colin, took time out from parenthood to visit shelters to determine how best to pull off the parties.

Finally, in January 2012, Paige launched the Birthday Party Project, a nonprofit organization, and recruited friends and family to help decorate Dallas’s 75-occupant Family Gateway Shelter with balloons and streamers, celebrating the birthdays of 11 boys and girls, with 60 more homeless kids in attendance. “That first party was better than I could have ever imagined,” says Paige.

Now Paige and her staff of three paid employees work with regional volunteers to plan monthly themed parties at 15 shelters across the country, some of which house abused or abandoned kids. Each child celebrating a birthday that month gets a$30 gift, a decorative place mat, and an individual cake or cupcake.

One of Paige’s favorite parts of each party is when the kids make a wish and blow out the candles. “They rarely get a chance to dream big,” says Paige.

Her daughter, Lizzie, now seven, often helps out at the parties. Paige says, “The one thing I’ve always wanted is for my kid to be generous.”
