B A global survey of charitable giving conducted on 135 nations might give us a renewed sense of faith in humanity. The World Giving Index 2014 examined whether people donated money to a charity, volunteered their time to an organization or offered assistance to someone they didn’t know who needed help. About 2.3 billion people worldwide reported helping a stranger over the course of one month last year, and over 1.4 billion donated money to charitable causes in 2013. It may not be surprising that the United States, one of the wealthiest countries in the world, came on top as the most generous nation. What is astonishing is that the accolade （荣誉） was shared with Myanmar, a nation ranking 151 spots lower than the U.s. on the GDP per capita scale. In fact, the report found that a nation’s economic prosperity doesn’t automatically translate to generosity. Only five of the countries in this year’s World Giving Index Top 20 are members of the G20, a forum of the world’s largest economies. Less wealthy places like Sri Lanka and Trinidad and Tobago featured in the top 10. Other factors, like following a religious philosophy or responding to a natural disaster, were found to be major drivers of donations. Myanmar earned its top place mainly due to the fact that nearly all of the respondents, 91%, donated money to charity, a practice which is rooted in the country’s Theravada Buddhist community. Another high-ranking country with a large population of the followers of that religion is Sri Lanka, which ranked ninth in the Index. Malaysia’s high jump in the ranking, from 71st place to 7th, was attributed to the outpouring of the humanitarian aid after the destructive Typhoon Haiyan hit the neighboring Philippines.
In Africa, Kenya has moved 18 places up this year, ranking 15th in the global index. It’s the most charitable country in the continent, ahead of larger economies like Nigeria, which is in the 21st place, and South Africa with rank 34th. Africans are also three times more likely to extend a helping hand to strangers than donate money or volunteer, which seems to show that are more likely to show their generosity through community support than formalized channels. From a global perspective, the report concludes that the diverse nature of the top giving countries signals that regardless of geography or culture, people universally appear to respond to those in need. 58. Which of the following is NOT the factor contributing to people’s generosity? A. A nation’s economic prosperity. B. A religious philosophy. C. The response to a natural disaster. D. The requirement of the government. 59. The author may agree with the following versions EXCEPT that____________. A. Kenya is the most charitable country in the continent of Africa. B. Africans tend to show their generosity through formalized channels. C. Malaysia ranks higher this year due to its abunsant aid to Philippines. D. many people in Myanmar and Sri Lanka share the same religious philosophy. 60. Which of the following shows the correct order of the countries in the World Giving Index? A. Kenya----Tobago----Nigeria----Myanmar. B. America----Tobago----Nigeria----Trinidad. C. Myanmar----Malaysia----Kenya----Nigeria. D. Sri Lanka----Kenya----South Africa----Trinidad. 61. The passage mainly tells us that___________. A. America took the lead in charitable giving. B. People have more faith in humanity nowadays. C. most people are willing to lend a hard when necessary. D. Some poor countries are more likely to show their generosity. C Biologists believe that love is fundamentally a biological rather than a cultural construct, because the capacity for love is found in all human cultures and similar behavior is found in some other animals. In humans the purpose of all the desire is to focus attention on the raising of offspring. Children demand an unusual amount of parenting, and two parents are better than one. Love is a signal that both partners are committed, and makes it more likely that this commitment will continue as long as necessary for children to reach independence. But what does science have to say about the notion of love at first sight? In recent years the ability to watch the brain in action has offered a wealth of insight into the mechanics of love. Researchers have shown that when a person falls in love, a dozen different part of brain work together to release chemicals that trigger feelings of euphoria, bonding and excitement. It has also been shown that the unconditional love between a mother and a child is associated with activity in different regions of the brain from those associated with pair-bonding love. Passionate love is rooted in the reward circuitry of the brain—the same area that is active when humans feel a rush from cocaine. In fact, the desire, motivations and withdrawals involved in love have a great deal in common with addiction. Its most intense forms tend to be associated with
the early stages of a relationship, which then give way to a calmer attachment form of love one feels with a long term partner. What all this means is that one special person can become chemically rewarding to the brain of another. Love at first sight, then, is only possible if the mechanism for generating long-term attachment can be triggered quickly. There are signs that it can be. One line of evidence is that people are able to decide within a second how attractive they find another person. This decision appears to be related to facial attractiveness, although men may favor women with waist-to-hip ratio of 0.7, no matter what their overall weight is. (This ratio may indicate a woman’s reproductive health.) Another piece of evidence comes from work by a psychologist at Ben-Gurion University, who found in a survey that a small percentage (11%) of people in long-term relationships said that they began with love at first sight. In other words, in some couples the initial favorable impressions of attractiveness triggered love which sustained a lengthy bond. It is also clear that some couples need to form their bonds over a longer period, and popular culture tells many tales of friends who become lovers. One might also assume that if a person is looking for a partner with traits that cannot be quantified instantly, such as compassion, intellect or a good sense of humor, then it would be hard to form a relationship on the basis of love at first sight. Those more concerned with visual appearances, though, might find this easier. So it appears that love at first sight exists, but is not a very common basis for long-term relationships. 62. When a person falls in love,_____________. A. he feels as if he were addicted to cocaine. B. he will be committed to the beloved as long as necessary. C. he will experience complex feelings brought on by different regions of his brain. D. he will experience a calmer attachment form of love before he feels the extreme love. 63.We can infer from the passage that ________. A. pair-bonding love comes from a long stable friendship. B. the mechanism for creating long-term attachment ensures love at first sight C. it is impossible for those ordinary-looking people to fall in love at first sight. D. men may be attracted by a girl whose figure suggests her admirable reproductive capacity. 64. The underlined word ―traits‖ in the last paragraph probably means ______. A. characteristics B. something typical in your temper C. particular quantities in your personality D. attitudes that show your moral standards 65. Which of the following may be the best title of the passage? A. The stages of passionate love B. The science of love at first sight C. The biological construct of pair-bonding D. The mechanism for generating long-term love D Ernest Hemingway was not only a commanding figure in 20th-century literature, but was also a pack rat. He saved even his old passports and used bullfight tickets, leaving behind one of the
longest paper trails of any author. ―Ernest Hemingway: Between Two Wars,‖ which opens on Friday at the Morgan Library & Museum, is the first major museum exhibition devoted to Hemingway and his work. The largest and most interesting section focuses on the ’20s, Hemingway’s Paris years, and reveals a writer we might have been in danger of forgetting: Hemingway before he became Hemingway. The exhibition does not fail to include pictures of the bearded, manly, Hem. He’s shown posing with some kudu he has just shot in Africa and on the bridge of his beloved fishing boat, the Pilar, with Carlos Gutiérrez, the fisherman who became the model for ―The Old Man and the Sea.‖ But the first photo the viewer sees is a big blowup of a handsome, clean-shaven, 19-year-old standing on crutches. This is from the summer of 1918, when Hemingway was recovering from wounds at the Red Cross hospital in Milan and trying to turn his wartime experiences into fiction. The evidence at this exhibition suggests that, in the early days, he often wrote in pencil, mostly in cheap notebooks but sometimes on whatever paper came to hand. The first draft of the short story ―Soldier’s Home‖ was written on sheets he appeared to have snatched from a telegraph office. The impression you get is of a young writer seized by inspiration and sometimes barreling ahead without an entirely clear sense of where he is going. F. Scott Fitzgerald (some of whose letters with Hemingway is also on view) famously urged him to cut the first two chapters of ―The Sun Also Rises,‖ complaining about the ―elephantine facetiousness‖ of the beginning, and Hemingway obliged, getting rid of a clunky opening that now seems almost ―meta‖. In 1929, in a nine-page penciled critique, Fitzgerald also suggested numerous revisions for ―A Farewell to Arms.‖ Hemingway took some of these, but less graciously, and soon afterward his friendship with Fitzgerald came to an end. The papers at the Morgan show a Hemingway who is not always sure of himself. There are running lists of stories he kept fiddling with, and there are lists and lists of possible titles, including the 45 he considered for ―Farewell‖ and 47 different endings for the novel. In display case after display case, you see Hemingway during his Paris years inventing and reinventing himself, discovering as he goes along just what kind of writer he wants to be. In a moving 1925 letter to his parents, who refused to read ―In Our Time,‖ his second story collection, he writes: ―You see I’m trying in all my stories to get the feeling of the actual life across — not just to describe life — or criticize it — but to actually make it alive. So that when you have read something by me you actually experience the thing. You cant do this without putting in the bad and the ugly as well as what is beautiful.‖ By the time the Second World War broke out, Hemingway had solidified into the iconic figure we now remember: Papa. Even J. D. Salinger calls him this. And a blustery, cranky Hemingway appears in 1949 when aboard the Pilar he grabs an old fishing diary and begins scrawling an angry letter to Harold Ross, the editor of The New Yorker, complaining about Alfred Kazin’s review of ―Across the River and Into the Trees,‖ not, in truth, a very good book. But, Hemingway, often drinking and depressed, didn’t know it, his best work was behind him by then. 66. Which of the following is closest in meaning to the underlined words ―a pack rat‖ (para. 1)? A. a person who doesn’t waste anything B. a person who cannot be relied on C. a person who likes to collect rubbish D. a person who enjoys collecting things 67. How many of Hemingway’s works are mentioned in this passage? A. 4 B. 5 C.6 D.7 68. We can conclude from the Morgan show that sometimes Hemingway was a person .
A. unconfident but full of inspirations B. stubborn but full of enthusiasm about love C. casual but full of heroism D. bad-tempered but full of strange habits 69. What does the writer truly mean by saying ―Hemingway before he became Hemingway‖? A. Hemingway wrote many masterpieces before he killed himself. B. Hemingway was once a war correspondent before he became a famous writer. C. Hemingway devoted all his strengths to writing before he won the Nobel Prize. D. Hemingway kept exploring the world and adjusting himself before he became a commanding figure in literature. 70. According to the Morgan show, readers are likely to see in Hemingway’s works. ① tough men who can’t be defeated ② anti-war fighters ③ the dark side of the world as well as its beauty ④ love affairs between a man and a woman ⑤ the story of a family business A. ①③ B. ②④ C. ①⑤ D. ③⑤

The results come from the so-called Million Women Study, which took on women aged 50 to 69 from 1996 to 2001, and tracked them with questionnaires and official records of death and hospital admissions. The questionnaires asked how often the women felt happy, in control, relaxed and stressed, and also instructed them to rate their health and list ailments like high blood pressure, diabetes, depression or anxiety. When the answers were analyzed statistically, unhappiness and stress were not associated with an increased risk of death. It is not clear whether the findings apply to men. Professor Peto said particularly important data came from 500,000 women who reported that they were in good health, with no history of heart disease, cancer, or stroke. A minority of these healthy women said they were stressed or unhappy, he said, but over the next decade they were no more likely to die than were the women who were generally happy. ―This finding refutes（驳斥）the large effects of unhappiness and stress on deathrate that others have claimed,‖ Dr. Peto said. Unhappiness itself may not affect health directly, but it can do harm in other ways, by driving people to suicide, alcoholism or other dangerous behaviors, he warned. This type of study, in which people involved depends on their self-assessments, is not considered as reliable as a designed experiment where people involved are picked at random and assigned to a treatment or control group. But the huge number of people in this study gives it power. Still, some observers noted that measuring emotions is more nuanced（细微的）and complex than simply declaring happiness or unhappiness. ―I would have liked to see more discussion of how people translate these complicated feelings into a self-report of happiness,‖ said Baruch Fischhoff, a psychologist at Carnegie Mellon University. The results of earlier studies have been mixed, with some finding that unhappiness causes illness and others showing no link, Dr. Fischhoff said. ―It looks to me like people have collected a lot
of data without finding a clear signal,‖ he said. However, an editorial accompanying the study in The Lancet noted that it had the largest population so far in happiness studies and praised its statistical methods. Professor Peto said he doubted whether the new study would change many minds because beliefs about the risks of unhappiness are so rooted. ―People are still going to believe that stress causes heart attacks,‖ he said.

Is it worth spending big to study abroad? You are welcome to leave your comments. Arsa(Russia):I went to study abroad when I was 17. First year was a total waste as I met plenty of Russian students in my collage and we spent most of our time shopping and hanging out at cafes.It wasn't until two years later that I realized that my English hadn't improved.I changed my mindset entirely and started studying hard.I ended up staying in UK for 10 years, which opened a lot of doors and introduced me to great people,so I'm all for studying abroad. Truth(US):There is an assumption that American education is the best in the word,so Chinese
parents are pushing their kids to American collages. And some are even sending their children overseas at junior or high school level. I often think this is a mistake as the education a Chinese child gets in a foreign country is very different from what they are used to and they often struggle Some students have trouble understanding their lecturers and their assignments keep coming back with poor scores.

People’s opinions on this vary. (31 words) I think it makes good sense to send children to study abroad for the following reasons. First, when studying abroad, children are exposed to a different culture, which will help broaden their horizons and provide them with a chance to improve their foreign language. Second, living apart from their family, children can learn to adapt to the new environment and live on their own. Last but not the least, faced with fierce competition in a job market, a person owning a foreign diploma can have an edge over others. In summary, it goes without saying that studying abroad is an excellent experience from which children can benefit a lot, so if possible, children should make the most of the great chance.

People’s opinions on this vary. (31 words) I don’t think it is a wise option to send children to foreign countries for education, especially those at junior or senior level. For one thing, we have good universities in China where students can receive an equally good education and therefore owning a foreign diploma doesn’t necessarily mean an edge over others in hunting for jobs. For another, so high is the tuition that not every family can
afford it. Besides, finding it hard to adapt to the new environment, some students feel depressed or even drop out without achieving anything. Whether to send children to study abroad is a vital decision worthy of careful consideration. It is not where to study but how to study well that really makes a difference. (154 words)
听力录音稿： 第一节： Text1 M: What visits are planned for this term? W: Well, I’m afraid the schedule hasn’t been printed out yet, but we have confirmed the dates and planned the optional extra visits which you can also book in advance if you want to. M: Oh, that’s right. Text 2 W: When was the last time you took out cash from an ATM? M: Uh, three or four days ago, I guess. W: That’s what I thought. Hmm, that’s strange. I thought we had more money in our checking account. I’ll call the bank and find out what’s going on. Text 3 W: How can I help you? M: I understand that the school organizes… umm, trips to different… W: Yes, we run five every month; three during weekends and two Wednesday afternoon trips. Text 4 M: I hate working overtime. So most of the time I knock off at 5 on schedule. How about you? W: I leave for home when the job is done. That means that sometimes it’s 4:30 in the afternoon and sometimes it’s as late as 8 p.m. Text 5 M: Hello! May I speak to Mrs. Arnold? W: Speaking. M: This is Sparkly Company. You are one of the lucky housewives chosen to receive our free soap. W: That’s very nice of you. But I’d rather go on using what I’ve always used. Thanks just the same. 第二节： Text 6 M: Julie, did you cook something for breakfast this morning? W: Yes, I did. Why do you ask? M: I think you left the stove on. W: Oh, no. Was there any damage? M: The frying pan overheated, and the handle got damaged, but nothing serious happened. But please try to be more mindful in the future. It could have been a disaster. W: I’m really sorry. It won’t happen again. M: Also, one of the neighbor’s dogs keeps leaving his mess in our yard. W: Oh, that’s Maria’s dog. I’ll talk to her about it. M: Thanks.
Text 7 W: Clinic. Can I help you? M: Good afternoon. This is Frank Stone. I want to make an appointment with Doctor Milton, please. W: OK, Mr. Stone. We have you on our records. Can you manage this afternoon? M: I’m afraid not. I can manage tomorrow. W: I’m afraid Mr. Milton is not on duty tomorrow. He’ll be here the day after tomorrow. That’s Thursday, March 27th. M: Fine. W: Will 5:20 p.m be all right? M: Well, yet. But what time is the clinic closed? W: We start from 9:00 a.m. and close at 7:00 p.m. on weekdays. We don’t work at the weekend. M: I’d prefer a later time so that I can come along after work. W: Then what about 6:15? M: Well, that’s fine. Text 8 W: Please put your cigarette out. The smoke gives me a headache. M: Ok! Ok! You know, I hate to see women sitting down all day with their heads buried in their hands. W: Do you want me to put my needlework away? M: You bet! W: I am putting forth a lot of effort to make this table cloth. You always complain about whatever you see me doing. I can’t put up with your constant criticism anymore. M: I’m sorry sweetie. Please forgive my bad temper. I was putting a machine together today, and I had problems with it. I am tired. Will you please forgive me? W: This time I will, but please don’t put me down any more. M: Honey, I’ve put aside some money that I earned by doing some extra mechanical work. Would you like to go out to dinner tonight, just the two of us? W: How exciting! I’ll take a shower and put on my best dress. Oh, here’s an advertisement for that new Italian restaurant in the shopping mall. M: Mmm! Look at these photographs. They put me in the mood for Italian food. Would you like to try this new place? W: Can we afford it? M: Don’t worry! We can manage. Payday is tomorrow. Text 9 M: Well, any luck? Did you see Buster anywhere? W: No, I couldn’t find him, either. I drove all around the neighborhood. I circled our block three times, hoping he’d show up. No such luck. I’m sorry, Ben. M: It’s not your fault. I shouldn’t have left the door open. I hope we’ll find him. He is such a huge part of our family. He walks with Lily to school every morning. W: I’m sure we’ll find him, Ben. I remember when I lost my dog Spot. We looked for ten hours, and finally we just gave up. Not long after we got home, Spot showed up at our front door. They know how to get home, Ben. They always do. M: I hope you’re right, Lucy. Maybe he’ll show up before it gets dark. I just hope he’s okay. W: He will be, Ben. He has always been loyal to you and your family. He’s probably just off
exploring. M: If you say so. Let’s walk up Forest Avenue and see if maybe he’s hiding in Mr. Johnson’s yard. He always likes to bark and chase his cat around there. W: That’s a good idea! See, we’ll find him before you know it. You have nothing to be worried about. Text 10 The only bear to have been living in the wild in Switzerland, known as M13, was recently shot dead in the mountains near the Italian border. The brown bear had become dangerous because he regularly looked for food in busy areas, including a school, and had started following people during the day. The creature also showed little fear of humans despite several attempts to get it away from villages. He had been called a ―problem bear‖ back in November, 2012, but he had never showed any actual aggression toward people before the shooting. Some nature groups said that wildlife officers should have continued efforts to make him more frightened of humans before making the decision to shoot him. On February 18, eight men wearing masks and carrying guns drove two cars through a fence at Brussels International Airport, sped toward a waiting aircraft, and stole $50 million worth of diamonds. The robbery took only three minutes from start to finish. The men wore clothing that looked like police uniforms, and they appeared to be professionals. The tiny island of Guam(关岛) has finally found a way to deal with its snake problem. The U.S. will take thousands of dead mice, give them poison, and drop them on the island in an attempt to kill some of the island’s two million Brown Tree Snakes. The snakes are responsible for killing off the island’s entire native bird population, biting residents, and even knocking out electricity by climbing onto power lines. 一、评分标准： 项目 分值 评分标准 按照要求概括了原文的全部主要信息，没有增加与原文无关的信息， 5 没有照抄原文的句子。语言结构正确，行文规范。 基本按照要求概括了原文的主要信息，没有增加与原文无关的信息， 4 没有照抄原文的句子。语言结构正确，行文规范。 基本按照要求概括原文的主要信息，但包含一些不相关的信息，有个 3 概括 别句子抄自原文。语言结构基本正确，行文不够规范。 不能按照要求概括原文的主要信息，包含较多不相关信息，大多数句 2 子都抄自原文。语言结构不准确，行文不够规范。 没有按照要求概括原文的主要信息，基本是不相关的信息，大多数句 1 子都抄自原文。语言结构不准确，行文不够规范。 包含题目所给或绝大部分的主要内容要点。主题明确，内容丰富。 18-20 词汇较丰富，有个别用词错误。较好地运用了合适的语言结构，而且 没有（有少许的）语法错误。篇章结构的连贯性较好。 包含题目所给或绝大部分的主要内容要点。主题明确，个别内容不准 14-17 确或者不相关。词汇较丰富，有个别用词错误。较好地运用了合适的 语言结构，有少许的语法错误。篇章结构的连贯性较好 写作 包含题目所给或绝大部分的主要内容要点。主题比较明确，个别内容 11-13 部准确或者不相关。词汇较丰富，有个别用词错误。较好地运用了合 适的语言结构，有少许的语法错误。篇章结构的连贯性较好 包含题目所给的部分内容要点，主题基本明确，有些内容不准确或者 7-10 不相关。词汇有限，有较多的用词错误。大多数的句子出现语法错误。 篇章结构的连贯性差。 4-6 只包含题目所给的个别内容要点。多数内容不相关或者不准确。文章
