（London）—If it really is what?s on the inside that counts, then a lot of thin people might be in trouble. Some doctors now think that the internal fat surrounding important organs like the heart or liver could be as dangerous as the external fat which can be noticed more easily. “Being thin doesn?t surely mean you are not fat,” said Dr Jimmy Bell at Imperial College. Since 1994, Bell and his team have scanned nearly 800 people with MRI machines to create “fat maps” showing where people store fat. According to the result, people who keep their weight through diet rather than exercise are likely to have major deposits of internal fat, even if they are slim. Even people with normal Body Mass Index scores can have surprising levels of fat deposits inside. Of the women, as many as 45 percent of those with normal BMI scores (20 to 25) actually had too high levels of internal fat. Among men, the percentage was nearly 60 percent. According to Bell, people who are fat on the inside are actually on the edge of being fat. They eat too many fatty and sugary foods, but they are not eating enough to be fat. Scientists believe we naturally store fat around the belly first, but at some point, the body may start storing it elsewhere. Doctors are unsure about the exact dangers of internal fat, but some think it has something to do with heart disease and diabetes. They want to prove that internal fat damages the body?s communication systems. The good news is that internal fat can be easily burned off through exercise or even by improving your diet. “If you want to be healthy, there is no short cut. Exercise has to be an important part of your lifestyle.” Bell said. 41. What can we learn from the passage? A. Thin people may be fat inside. B. Internal fat is of no importance. C. Internal fat leads to many diseases. D. Thin people also have troubles. 42. Doctors have found _____. A. the exact dangers of internal fat B. internal fat is the cause of heart disease and diabetes C. being slim is not dangerous at all D. being slim doesn?t mean you are not fat inside 43. According to the passage, which of the following is WRONG? A. Exercise can help to reduce the internal fat. B. People can get rid of internal fat by improving diet. C. Men are more likely to have too much internal fat. D. People with heart disease all have internal fat. 44. From the last paragraph, we can find that _____. A. whether internal fat can lead to disease has been proved B. exercise plays an important role in people?s life for keeping healthy C. thin people usually have internal fat even if they are slim D. it is easier to burn off internal fat than external fat 45. The underlined part in the last paragraph means _____. A. a long road B. an easy way C. a clear difference D. a short distance B Most people feel lonely sometimes, but it usually only lasts between a few minutes and a few hours. This kind of loneliness is not serious. In fact, it is quite normal. For some people, though, loneliness can last for years. Now researchers say there are three different types of loneliness. The first kind of loneliness is temporary. This is the most common type. It usually disappears quickly and does not require any special attention. The second kind, situational loneliness, is a natural result of a particular situation — for example, family problem, the death of a loved one, or moving to a new place. Although this kind of loneliness can cause physical problems, such as headaches and sleeplessness, it usually does not last for more than a year. The third kind of loneliness is the most severe. Unlike the second type, habitual loneliness usually lasts more
than two years and has no specific cause. People who experience habitual loneliness have problems socializing and becoming close to others. Unfortunately, many chronically lonely people think there is little or nothing they can do to improve their condition. Psychologists agree that one important factor in loneliness is a person's social contacts, e.g. friends, family members, co-workers, etc. We depend on various people for different reasons. For instance, our families give us emotional support, our parents and teachers give us guidance, and our friends share similar interests and activities. However, psychologists have found that, though lonely people may have many social contacts, they sometimes feel they should have more. They question their popularity. Psychologists are trying to find ways to help habitually lonely people for two reasons: they are unhappy and unable to socialize and there is a connection between habitual loneliness and serious illness such as heart disease. While temporary and situational loneliness can be a normal, healthy part of life, habitual loneliness can be a sad and sometimes dangerous condition. 46. How would you treat temporary loneliness according to the passage? A. Talk to friends. B. Just ignore it. C. Go to see a doctor. D. Ask your teachers for guidance. 47."It" in the last sentence of the second paragraph refers to _____. A. temporary loneliness B. situational loneliness C. habitual loneliness D. sleeplessness 48. The topic of the 4th paragraph is that____. A. one problem of loneliness is a person's social contacts B. we depend on various person for different reasons C. lonely people don't have many social problems D. lonely people don't have many friends 49. Why do psychologists want to help chronically lonely people? A. Chronic loneliness can cause family problems. B. Chronic loneliness can cause serious illness. C. Chronic loneliness can not be overcome. D. Habitual loneliness can lead to various crimes. 50. What is the best title for the passage? A. How to Get Rid of Loneliness B. Loneliness and Diseases C. Loneliness and Social Contacts D. Three Kinds of Loneliness C Close your eyes for a minute and imagine what life would be like if you had a hundred dollars less. Also imagine what it would be like spending the rest of your life with your eyes closed. Imagine having to read this page, not with your eyes but with your finger-tips. With existing medical knowledge and skills, two-thirds of the world?s 42 million blind should not have to suffer. Unfortunately, rich countries possess most of this knowledge, while developing countries do not. ORBIS is an international non-profit organization which operates the world?s only flying teaching eye hospital. ORBIS intends to help fight blindness worldwide. Inside a DC-8 aircraft, there is a fully-equipped teaching hospital with a television studio and a classroom. Doctors are taught the latest techniques of bringing sight back to people there. Project ORBIS also aims at promoting peaceful cooperation among countries. ORBIS tries to help developing countries by providing training during three-week medical programs. ORBIS has taught sight-saving techniques to over 35,000 doctors and nurses, who continue to cure tens of thousands of blind people every year. ORBIS has conducted 17 plane programs in China so far. For the seven to ten million blind in China ORBIS is planning to do more for them. At the moment an ORBIS is working on a long-term plan
to develop a training center and to provide eye care service to Shanxi Province. ORBIS needs your help to continue their work and liberate people from blindness. For just US$38, you can help one person see; for $380 you can bring sight to 10 people; $1,300 helps teach a doctor new skills; and for $13,000 you can provide a training program for a group of doctors who can make thousands of blind people see again. Your money can open their eyes to the world. Please help ORBIS improve the quality of life for so many people less fortunate than ourselves. 51. The first paragraph is intended to ______.

Appeal for donations. B. Make an advertisement. C. Promote training programs. D. Show sympathy for the blind. 55. What does the underlined word liberate probably mean?

The studies clearly show that the dropout rate isn?t dropping. And, in particular, the dropout rate isn?t dropping for poor and minority students. Amazingly, though so many regret the rising dropout rate, our schools continue to lack formal plans—or any plans—to teach students motivation. Most schools have no game plan to ensure that students understand that schooling will be completely necessary. Schools expect youth and children to act as though schooling is important, but they never teach them to believe that. Years ago, families ensured that the children recognized the value of schooling. But in many modern families, the children may fail to recognize the importance of school life just because these families may actually tell their children that school is not important. Since many families are not motivating their children to be interested students, youth professionals, like teachers may need to provide this training. Otherwise, it is likely that the dropout rate will continue not to drop, but only worsen. Here are some strategies to convince even the most apathetic (无动于衷的) students that they must stay in school. Ask students if they will ever need to work: The world has changed. 100 years ago, factory work was the booming job, and it required no education. Today, factories are increasingly automated. Most computer-related jobs require education and at least a high school diploma(证书).
Ask students which century they will be prepared for: In 1900, the most common jobs were farm laborer and domestic servant—education not needed. Now, the most common jobs are office and sales staff—education and diploma usually needed. An amazing 6 out of 10 people today work in a store or office. Ask students to devise a way that the employee could be replaced. For example, the coming trend in fast food is to use computers rather than people to run the restaurant. A prototype is apparently already being tested. The students should discover that most jobs that lack education and diploma requirements may be ripe for automation. 56. What does the underlined part mean in Paragraph1? A. Few students can afford to go to school in large cities. B. A large number of the 9th graders can graduate now. C. There are still quite a few 9th graders leaving school early. D. Most schools in large cities have fewer and fewer students. 57. Without the help of youth professionals,_____. A. more and more families will gradually recognize the value of school. B. it is likely that the dropout rate in schools won?t continue to drop. C. some parents will be more convinced of their children?s future. D. the schools will make proper plans to solve the problems with dropout. 58. The author takes factory work for example mainly to ______. A. tell us that many jobs requires certain education in the past B. show that there are more factory work and employment in modern society C. show that employment in the computer field grows at a high rate D. emphasize that modern jobs require education and schools are necessary 59. It can be inferred that______. A. both schools and families should answer for the high dropout rate B. many new jobs don?t need children?s high school diploma C. working in a store doesn?t require a high school diploma D. most schools are ready to help students recognize the importance of study 60. If students play the “Replace Me” game, the result would be “______”. A. They will know that they can ?always? do without a diploma B. More of them will drop out early to go to work C. They will discover that lack of education is a disadvantage in choosing jobs D. They will become better at using computers to hunt for a job IV. 单词拼写 ( 10% ) 1.
