A Cell Phones Are the New Cigarettes When you get in your car, you reach for it. When you’re at work, you take a break to have a moment alone with it. When you get into a lift, you play with it. Cigarettes? Cup of coffee? No, it’s the third most addictive thing in modern life, the cell phone. And experts say it is becoming more difficult for many people to curb their longing to hug it more tightly than most of their personal relationships. With its shiny surface, its smooth and satisfying touch, its air of complexity, the cell phone connects us to the world even as it disconnects us from people three feet away. In just the past couple of years, the cell phone has challenged individuals, employers, phone makers and counselors (顾问)in ways its inventors in the late 1940s never imagined. The costs are becoming even more evident, and I don’t mean just the monthly bill. Dr. Chris Knippers, a counselor at the Betty Ford Center in Southern California, reports that the overuse of cell phones has become a social problem not much different from other harmful addictions: a barrier to one-on-one personal contact, and an escape from reality. Sounds extreme, but we’ve all witnessed the evidence: the person at a restaurant who talks on the phone through an entire meal, ignoring his kids around the table; the woman who talks on the phone in the car, ignoring her husband; the teen who texts messages all the way home from school, avoiding contact with kids all around him. Is it just rude, or is it a kind of unhealthiness? And pardon me, but how is this improving the

quality of life? Jim Williams, an industrial sociologist based in Massachusetts, notes that cell-phone addiction is part of a set of symptoms in a widening gulf of personal separation.He points to a study by Duke University researchers that found one-quarter of Americans say they have no one to discuss their most important personal business with. Despite the growing use of phones, e-mail and instant messaging, in other words, Williams says studies show that we don’t have as many friends as our parents. “Just as more information has led to less wisdom, more acquaintances via the Internet and cell phones have produced fewer friends,” he says. If the cell phone has truly had these effects, it’s because it has become very widespread. Consider that in 1987, there were only 1 million cell phones in use. Today, something like 300 million Americans carry them. They far outnumber wired phones in the United States. 56. Which of the following best explains the title of the passage? A. Cell phone users smoke less than they used to. B. Cell phones have become as addictive as cigarettes. C. More people use cell phones than smoke cigarettes. D. Using cell phone is just as cool as smoking cigarettes. 57. The underlined word “curb” in Paragraph 2 means _______. A. rescue B. ignore C. develop D. control 58. The example of a woman talking on the phone in the car supports the idea that ___. A. women use cell phones more often than men B. talking on the phone while driving is dangerous C. cell phones do not necessarily bring people together D. cell phones make one-on-one personal contact easy B Reaching new peaks of popularity in North America is Iceberg Water, which is harvested from icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Arthur von Wiesenberger, who carries the title Water Master, is one of the few water critics in North America. As a boy, he spent time in the larger cities of Italy, France and Switzerland, where bottled water is consumed daily. Even then, he kept a water journal, noting the brands he liked best. “My dog could tell the difference between bottled and tap water,” he says. But is plain tap water all that bad? Not at all. In fact, New York’s municipal water for more than a century was called the champagne of tap water and until recently considered among the best in the world in terms of both taste and purity. Similarly, a magazine in England found that tap water from the Thames River tasted better than several leading brands of bottled water that were 400 times more expensive. Nevertheless, soft-drink companies view bottled water as the next battle-ground for market share—this despite the fact that over 25 percent of bottled water comes from tap water: PepsiCo’s Aquafina and Coca-Cola’s Dasani are both purified tap water rather than spring water. As diners thirst for leading brands, bottlers and restaurateurs salivate (垂涎) over the profits. A restaurant’s typical mark-up on wine is 100 to 150 percent, whereas on bottled water it’s often 300 to 500 percent. But since water is much cheaper than wine, and many of the fancier brands aren’t available in stores, most diners don’t notice or care. As a result, some restaurants are turning up the pressure to sell bottled water. According to an article in The Street Journal, some of the more shameless strategies include placing attractive bottles on the table for a visual sell, listing brands on the menu without prices, and pouring bottled water

without even asking the diners if they want it. Regardless of how it’s sold, the popularity of bottled water taps into our desire for better health, our wish to appear cultivated, and even a longing for lost purity. 59. By saying “My dog could tell the difference between bottled and tap water” (Para.2), Arthur von Wiesenberger wants to convey the message that ________. A. plain tap water is certainly unfit for drinking B. bottled water is clearly superior to tap water C. bottled water often appeals more to dogs’ taste D. dogs can usually detect a fine difference in taste 60. The “fancier brands” (Line 3 Para. 5) refers to ________. A. tap water from the Thames River B. famous wines not sold in ordinary stores C. PepsiCo’s Aquafina and Coca-Cola’s Dasani D. expensive bottled water with impressive names 61. Why are some restaurants turning up the pressure to sell bottled water? A. Bottled water brings in huge profits. B. Competition from the wine industry is intense. C. Most diners find bottled water affordable. D. Bottled water satisfies diners’ desire to be fashionable. 62. According to the passage, why is bottled water so popular? A. It is much cheaper than wine. B. It is considered healthier. C. It appeals to more cultivated people. D. It is more widely promoted in the market. C A federal judge sentenced Bruce Jones to 12 years in federal prison for fraud (诈骗罪). Over a 10-year period, Jones had managed to cheat thousands of people throughout the state out of almost $10 million. He advertised his fantastic ideas on TV. “For some reason,” Jones said, “TV seems to break the ice. Even though you are a total stranger to the viewer, once he sees you on TV in his home, he feels like he knows you. You enter his living room and become a trusted friend.” Jones had an imagination that wouldn’t quit. One time he showed viewers an “official government” earthquake report which “proved” that the western half of California would collapse into the sea within three years. For $100, he said, Jones would insure your house and property for full value. Thousands of people who saw that TV ad sent him a hundred dollars each. In another TV ad, Jones claimed that he had come to an agreement with the federal and state government for exclusive 独享的) rights. He told viewers that, for only $100, they could own the ( air first 10 miles above all their property. You would be able to charge any commercial plane that flew over your property $100 per crossing. You would also be able to charge government rockets, satellites, space shuttles, and space stations $100 for each and every violation of your air rights. Another time, Jones claimed to have invented a product that gets rid of calories. He showed the viewers a spray can of “NoCal.” He said that by simply spraying NoCal on your food, a chemical interaction would cause all the calories in the food to simply disappear within about 10 seconds. The NoCal was only $10 a can. As usual, Jones received thousands of checks in the mail. The judge told Jones that he should be ashamed of himself. Jones responded that he was very ashamed of himself, and that when he got out of prison he hoped to become a TV adviser to help
第6页

people avoid getting cheated. He told the judge that he was already developing an instructional CD that, for merely $100, would save people thousands of dollars in scams(骗局). The judge nodded, and then changed Jones’ sentence from 10 years to 12 years. 63. According to Jones, he could successfully cheat many people mainly because _______. A. he promised them a large profit B. they were too eager to make money C. they believed too much in TV ads D. he was skillful in communicating with people 64. Which of the following statements is TRUE? A. Jones felt guilty and was determined to lead a new life. B. Jones was closely related to the state government. C. Western California was in danger of going under the sea. D. Jones showed unusual imagination in his tricks. 65. We can infer that people who wanted to buy “NoCal” from Jones _______. A. were mainly from low income families B. all had a rich knowledge of chemistry C. were probably interested in losing weight D. usually did the shopping through the Internet 66. The judge changed the sentence at last because _______. A. Jones was planning another big scam B. he could hardly believe what Jones had told him C. Jones had cheated more people than he expected D. he had suffered from Jones’ scams himself D The Rugby World Cup is currently being held in New Zealand. The tournament, due to finish on October 23, is living up to the famous English saying, “Rugby is a thug’s(暴徒) game played by gentlemen.” The games are physically aggressive; the tackles (冲 撞) on the pitch are brutal; but the end of each match is a civilized affair. Players shake hands and applaud each other. Of course, the other side to this saying is: “Football is a gentleman’s game played by thugs.” Indeed, unlike soccer players, rugby players don’t often question the referee’s decisions or pretend to be injured when they are not. “Football could learn a lot from rugby,” said Brian Moore, a Rugby former England rugby player. “The wonderful spirit of rugby is: is believed to be a there is a gentlemanly code to it. You play hard on the pitch, violent sport played by but gentlemen. you always respect your opponent.” Rugby is mainly played in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and parts of Africa. “It is more enjoyable to play than soccer because you are always involved in the game,” said Peter, a Welsh rugby coach. “Rugby is also a far superior test of strength, stamina (耐力) and determination.” Most professional rugby players are large, strong and weigh over 90 kilograms. People who

play the sport need to be tough and be prepared to get hurt. Black eyes, broken bones, lost teeth and being knocked unconscious—all these are common injuries. Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is blind in one eye thanks to a rugby accident at school. In England, children begin playing the game at school at the age of 8. When they enter high school, many begin to play full contact rugby. Children are taught to play for around one hour a week during their PE lessons. Most schools have a rugby team. Children who play for the school team are usually the sportiest kids, and are seen as brave and athletic. 67. The main purpose of the article is to _______. A. give an introduction to rugby B. compare rugby with football C. show how rugby is taught in England D. point out how violent rugby games are 68. What can be concluded from the first three paragraphs? A. Football players are not real gentlemen. B. There is a better spirit in playing rugby than football. C. Football players are not as athletic as rugby players. D. Brian Moore thinks that rules should be stricter in football. 69. The example of Gordon Brown is mentioned in order to _______.

(请将答案填写在答卷纸上) 第四部分:任务型阅读(共 10 小题;每小题 l 分,满分 l0 分)
请认真阅读下列短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。注意:每个空 格只填 1 个单词。请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。

I used to be the messiest person alive. Over the years, through watching others and by trial and error, I have finally found ways to come up with plans, organize them and follow through with them. Make an outline of everything you need to have and do to make your plan happen. Make a list of all of the steps that need to be accomplished and think about what needs to be done. Detail everything thoroughly and read over it so you can start coming up with some mental solutions of how to carry out your plans.
第8页

You should ensure that if for some reason way one doesn’t work, you have way two and way three to lean back on. Therefore, different ways are needed at hand. It’s just a matter of being organized. Chances are that there is always more than one way of doing things, and chances are that if one of those ways doesn’t work, one of the other ones will. Committing yourself to finishing at least part if not all of your plan at once is also necessary. It will show that you not only have initiative to get things rolling, but that you are interested in the results obtained with making the move to get everything done. If you make a commitment to finish before a specific time, make sure that you carry that out, and be sure to do everything in the way you said you would, within the time-frame you set for yourself. Don’t try to tackle more things all at a time. All that does is delay your progress, distract you and make you lose your interest, motivation and energy. Carrying out an effective plan requires being as organized as possible. You will only achieve this by sticking to the order of the plan and not deviating or trying to do more at a time. Last but not least, you should never abandon things mid-project. It will only annoy everyone around you including yourself. Unfinished plans are a waste of time, energy and, in some cases, even money. So, don’t be afraid of organization. The older we get, the more necessary it becomes to have the skills to follow through with confidence and to be able to carry through plans in an organized and manageable way. It pays to be organized, after all.

作文 书面表达范文 (One possible version) It so happens that while you are on the way, the whole traffic is gradually down to even a complete stop: buses are not running in the bus-only lane; the lines of cars twist like snakes; some brave motorcyclists wind their way between cars and buses; bicycle riders are so scared as some of the cars turn to use their lane moving ahead, and force bicycles to give way.
第 10 页

Some people think the fact that there are too many private cars has contributed to the frequent traffic jam. However, I hold a different point of view. Drivers’ ignorance of traffic rules is the root of the issue. To raise people’s awareness of public traffic rules is a key to avoiding bad traffic. Of course, it doesn’t mean that our local department is exempt from their obligations that safe and smooth traffic is guaranteed under a scientific management.

W: Your wallet? How is that possible? M: Yes. At the movies, I had paid for the popcorn and drinks. Did I leave it there? W: No, I don’t think so. Because you gave me $10 for the hot dogs after the movies at that new hot dog place. M: After that we went to the convenience store. You paid for the chocolate there. W: Yeah. And then I paid for the taxi ride back home. Right! I know where you left it! (Text 7) W: Of course I’ll pick you up, Kevin. You’re my favorite cousin. Great. I’ll see you at three o’clock!

M: What do you mean? W: Just look at it! The accident wasn’t on Thursday! It was on Tuesday! The accident happened at lunchtime! Really you should remember the facts.

W: I don’t believe you. Why do you think there was a truck? M: Well, the article says so. W: Don’t believe everything you read. It was a minibus. And the minibus driver was fine. The person who flew out was a passenger at the front of the minibus. M: So it should be bad news for a passenger on the minibus. And I guess the information about the car is correct? W: It is, but I think that is personal information and we shouldn’t print it in the newspaper, so cancel the entire paragraph. M: OK.

Eight of us, we were going to go for a week, hiking through the mountains, backpacking, carrying all the equipment on us, so that we could camp out and cook over a fire and everything. We ended up camping out every single night. Two of the nights were really nice because it was clear. The sky was clear so you could see all the stars. It was warm, and it was beautiful. But on the second-to-last night, we had a huge thunderstorm. It scared us to death. You know, we were out there in the middle of nowhere, and we were wet and scared, but it was OK, because the next day it was warm, sunny, and all of our stuff got to dry out, so it worked out OK. We covered about 200 miles in one week. We were really moving.
