You probably know who Marie Curie was, but you may not have heard of Rachel Carson. Of the outstanding ladies listed below, who do you think was the most important woman of the past 100 years?
Anyone who has ever been helped by a social worker has Jane Addams to thank. Addams helped the poor and worked for peace. She encouraged a sense of community(社区)by creating shelters and promoting education and services for people in need. In 1931, Addams became the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize.
If it weren’t for Rachel Carson, the environmental movement might not exist today. Her popular 1962 book Silent Spring raised awareness of the dangers of pollution and the harmful effects of chemicals on humans and on the world’s lakes and oceans.
Sandra Day O’Connor(1930-present)
When Sandra Day O’Connor finished third in her class at Stanford Law School, in 1952, she could not find work at a law firm because she was a woman. She became an Arizona state senator(参议员) and ,in 1981, the first woman to join the U.S. Supreme Court. O’Connor gave the deciding vote in many important cases during her 24 years on the top court.
On December 1,1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, Rasa Parks would not give up her seat on a bus to a passenger. Her simple act landed Parks in prison. But it also set off the Montgomery bus boycott. It lasted for more than a year, and kicked off the civil-rights movement. “The only tired I was, was tired of giving in,” said Parks.
21. Who made a great contribution to the civil-rights movement in the US?

I can’t remember the first time one of my children told me, “I hate you.” I can, however, tell you that it still happens occasionally, but it doesn’t bother me. As their father, I often say things that are unpopular. If they hate me once in a while, I know I’m doing a good job.
There are three other words that I won’t allow in my house, however. Last week, I was watching my older son play with a paper airplane. After he accidentally threw it into a wall and it came apart, his eyes were filled with tears.
“I hate myself,” he said. It wasn’t the first time he’d said it, and I was concerned that he’d started to actually believe it.
I knelt down next to him and made him look into my eyes. I told him that I never wanted to hear those words again, and that he needed to respect himself.
The difference between your kid telling you they hate you and they saying they hate themselves is that, five minutes later, they’ve already forgotten they “hate you”. Self-hate is much more potentially poisonous and for young people, it can linger into the rest of their life.
Kids who start to believe they hate themselves sometimes struggle to form new friendships. As teenagers, they avoid the chance to connect with a potential love interest, because they assume they’ll be rejected. And as adults, they might choose not to apply for the dream job because they assume it won’t work out.
I know this is true, because I didn’t have a high opinion of myself as a child. I found myself struggling in many areas, and I’d hate to see my children suffer the same fate.
Sometimes, words are just words. But some words can make the kind of impact I’d very much like to avoid for my children. I don’t fear strong language; I fear language that makes us weak.
25. How did the author feel on hearing his kids saying “I hate you”?
A. Depressed. B. Annoyed. C. Unconcerned. D. Excited.
26. Why won’t the author allow the three words “I hate myself”?
A. Because the influence of thinking in this way is negative.
B. Because it hurts parents to hear their kids saying so.
C. Because it doesn’t make any sense to blame oneself.
D. Because the impoliteness of saying so is unbearable.
27. Which of the following can replace the underlined word “linger” in paragraph 5?
A. come to an end B. continue to exist
C. begin to change D. become out of date
On March 17, people around the world celebrate the Irish holiday of Saint Patrick’s Day. It is a major holiday in Ireland, but the rest of the world has influenced its celebration as much as the Irish themselves.
Most Americans think of Saint Patrick’s Day as a big party centered around drinking alcohol. But its beginnings in Ireland were religious, says Mike Cronin, a professor of Irish history with Boston College of Massachusetts.
Ireland is a mostly Roman Catholic country. Saint Patrick lived in Ireland more than 2,000 years ago. He is widely considered to have established Christianity in the country. The Church honored him with a holy day in the 17th century. March 17 marks the date of his death. The average Irish person honored March 17 quietly. Attending church services was the main activity. In fact, most businesses that served alcohol would close in honor of the day.
In the early 1900s, Ireland’s government made St. Patrick’s Day an official holiday. By the 1960s, towns across Ireland started celebrating the holiday with parades and music. In Ireland today, St. Patrick’s Day is a four-day public celebration that includes parades, music, food, and games.
For Irish people living outside Ireland, Saint Patrick’s Day became a chance to celebrate their Irish identity and culture. Now, countries and cities around the world celebrate March 17 in creative ways. Many countries hold Saint Patrick’s Day parades. Famous monuments, including the Great Wall of China, the Niagara Falls, and the Gateway of India in Mumbai will all be colored by green light for the day.
Cronin says that the worldwide popularity of Saint Patrick’s Day has helped the Irish government, which uses the holiday as a form of diplomacy. And for a small island of 4.5 to 5 million people it’s quite remarkable that they have that kind of soft power.
28. How did average Irish people celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in the 17th century?
A. Drinking alcohol.
B. Parading in the streets.
C. Attending church services peacefully.
D. Coloring well-known monuments green.
29. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Saint Patrick’s Day is the most significant day in the US.
B. Saint Patrick’s Day plays a role in foreign affairs in Ireland today.
C. Saint Patrick’s Day is celebrated worldwide today as in the 17th century.
D. On Saint Patrick’s Day, parades and parties are held throughout America.
30. What is the passage mainly about?
A. The origin of Saint Patrick’s Day.
B. The celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day.
C. The influence of Saint Patrick’s Day on the world.
D. The role of Saint Patrick’s Day in Irish diplomacy.
31. What is Cronin’s attitude towards the popularity of Saint Patrick’s Day?
A. Unclear. B. Neutral. C. Negative. D. Positive.
As a child, visiting the zoo was more a punishment than a treat. I didn’t find the chimps’ tea parties funny, nor the bird shows entertaining. Feeding time for seals was less painful, but their performances still seemed like they belonged more in a circus（马戏团）.
And I hated circuses, especially the animal acts — men teasing lions, girls balancing on elephants and monkeys playing football. I knew that every trick a circus animal did was unnatural, achieved through strict training and quite possibly cruelty.
Happily, during my lifetime public attitudes and the law have changed. Circuses using wild animals are now almost extinct, and zoos have definitely evolved.
When my children were young, I occasionally took them to our local zoo. The elephants were in tiny cages and the gorillas looked bored as they sat peeling bananas and staring at teasing visitors. Each cage had a sign which listed the animal’s name and where it came from. But, back then, there was little information included about the environmental challenges they faced.
As a result, environmentalists and animal lovers often oppose zoos. “Animals belong in the wild,” is a common and understandable complaint. But what do the animals themselves prefer?
Generally speaking, zoo animals have a longer life. But — you may protest — they are not free. What? Free to be hunted and killed, free to die of hunger or thirst? Maybe sitting in a cage eating bananas isn’t so bad.
Not that such conditions are acceptable in modern zoos, due to the work of BIAZA, the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums. These days every zoo requires BIAZA’s approval to operate, and the association sets the standards, observes conditions in zoos and develops animal-research programmes, both in the UK and abroad. BIAZA also organizes the animal exchanges between zoos all over the world.
Consequently, today, most zoo animals are born and raised in zoos, live in large, comfortable enclosures and are cared for by well-trained, knowledgeable and caring zoo employees. Of course it’s no substitute for living in the wild but unfortunately this isn’t always possible. Meanwhile, why not visit your local zoo and decide for yourself?
32. The passage is mainly about __________.
A. how zoos have improved
B. whether a zoo should be closed down
C. a new environmental organization
D. the difference between zoos and circuses
33. From Paragraph 2, we can guess that the writer believes circus animals __________.
A. had much shorter lives than those in the wild
B. were not treated well by their trainers
C. should have been placed in zoos
D. were not as intelligent as those in zoos
34. Which of the following roles are performed by BIAZA?
A. Organizing animal study projects and training zoo workers.
B. Checking zoo conditions and arranging animal exchanges.
C. Designing zoos and approving zoo operations.
D. Caring for ill animals and setting zoo standards.
35. Which of the following statements about zoos would the writer agree with?
A. Zoo animals should be freed into the wild.
B. Zoos are more popular now than in the past.
C. Zoo animals are more restricted than in the past.
D. Zoos now provide caring living conditions for animals.
Everyone has feelings of anxiety, nervousness and stress from time to time. Here are 5 ways to help us manage them:
1. Become a relaxation expert. 36 But calming down in front of the TV or computer isn’t true relaxation. Depending on what you’re watching or doing, it could even make you more nervous. The same is true for alcohol, drugs or tobacco. They may seem to relieve anxiety or stress, but it’s a false state of relaxation that’s only temporary. What the body really needs is a relaxation technique—like deep breathing, tai chi or yoga—that has a physical effect on the mind.
2. Get enough sleep, food, and exercise. Want your mind and body to feel peaceful and strong enough to handle life’s ups and downs. 37 Eat well: Choose fruit, vegetables, low-fat proteins and whole grains for long-term energy. And exercise to send oxygen to every cell in the body so your brain and body can operate at their best.
3. Connect with others. 38 If you feel worried or nervous about something, talking about it with someone who listens and cares can help you feel more understood and better able to deal with it. You’ll be reminded that everyone has these feelings sometimes. You’re not alone.
4. Connect with nature. Heading out for a walk in the park or a hike in the woods can help anyone feel peaceful. 39 Walking or hiking can offer additional benefit of exercise.
5. Think positively. A great way to keep our minds off the worry track is to focus our thoughts on things that are good, beautiful and positive. 40
A. People feel anxiety and nervousness for different reasons.
B. Spend time with your friends or family.
C. We all think we know how to relax.
D. Allow yourself to dream, wish, and imagine the best that could happen.
E. It’s very important to know how to deal with anxiety.
F. Choose somewhere you feel safe so you can relax and enjoy your surroundings.
G. Get the right amount of sleep for your needs---not too much or too little.
It’s easy to see how to help some people, but what about those whose needs are not so obvious? This story may have happened a while back, but it was a 41 which has stayed with me and helped me ever since.
It was Thanksgiving, and I was 42 with my parents at a shelter for the needy. We were standing behind the counter 43 hot food to whoever came in. Most of our 44 looked like they had been having hard times; their clothes were worn out and dirty. 45 , they looked needy! Then, a man came in, who looked 46 but needy. He was well-dressed, in a(n) 47 suit. I wondered what he was doing there, and my jaw (下巴) dropped in 48 , when he joined the line for 49 . The closer he came to my 50 station, the more I muttered (嘀咕) to my self. What was this man doing? I wanted to know. Surely he wasn’t going to take food 51 for those who were really in need!
Then my mother quietly took me to one side. She said, “You have 52 that the needs of the people who come here must be purely 53 : for food, shelter, clothing, etc. And this gentleman doesn’t seem to have any of those problems. 54 what if his needs are emotional? What if he needs 55 , friends, or just to be among other human beings?” Her words hit me like a ton of bricks! I felt I should 56 to the man — but I didn’t.
About a week later the shelter received a large 57 from an anonymous(匿名的) source. I couldn’t help but 58 if it came from that man.
Now, 59 I meet someone I remember my mother’s lesson and try to keep an open mind, regardless of how they 60 . Needs aren’t always visible. But kindness always makes a difference.

Cupping treatment(拔火罐) is 61 ancient form of alternative medicine in 62 a doctor puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction(吸力).

Cupping treatment 63 (support) believe that cupping treatment gets rid of harmful things and poisons 64 (hide) in the body to improve health.
Cupping treatment dates back 65 ancient Egyptian, Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping treatment in 1 550 BC. But the 66 (popular) use has been in traditional Chinese Medicine.
The cups may be made of glass, bamboo and clay. There are different means of cupping, (include) 67 the dry and the wet. During both types of cupping, your doctor will put something, such as alcohol, herbs, or paper in a cup and set it on fire. As the fire 68 (go) out, he will put the cup upside down on your skin. As air inside the cup cools, it will create a vacuum(真空). This causes your skin 69 (rise) and become red. Generally speaking, the cup___70____(leave) in place for several minute.
In recent years, more and more parents send their children to famous schools, thought it can ensure their children can be admitted by better universities after graduation.
It is true that famous schools are furnishing with better teaching facilities. What’s more, teachers are excellent, that come from all over the country and even abroad. They have the ability make classes more lively and interesting, so students will be able to accept knowledge better. Besides, not every student is fit to go to famous schools where there is a fierce competition among students. And students there have to work much harder than that in ordinary schools.
I suggest effective measures are taken to make sure all the schools provide equal education. Only in this way can all the students equal have rights to receive quality education.
