Even after his death, Mitchell Whisenhunt has found a way to surprise and bring comfort to his wife and young daughter, with some letters he designated to be opened on certain dates. Mitchell lost his battle with Marfan syndrome at 26. The rare genetic disorder affects the body?s connective tissue, which is used to hold together organs, cells and tissue. Ashley Whisenhunt, 22, cared for her husband until his death but said she was astonished when she discovered the 30 letters he left for her, their 18-month-old daughter Brynleigh and the community. The little girl will grow up with a letter every year from her second to 18th birthday from a man she didn?t get to spend much time with but who left no doubt that he loved her unconditionally. “Through his testimony, there is so much she is going to learn,” Ashley told ABC News. One letter was also addressed to their Longview, Texas, community, thanking them for their support. “It just blows my mind,” Ashley said of her husband?s secret gesture. “He thought about everybody else instead of himself.” Ashley said she would respect her husband?s wishes and open each letter as he planned, however there was one special surprise left for her that she said hit her the hardest. In a spiral notebook that Ashley used before she dropped out of college to care for her husband, he wrote a letter to her asking that she publish a book of poetry he had written. Mitchell Whisenhunt even planned his own funeral, and the funeral director said he couldn?t tell Ashley because it was Mitchell?s plan and secret. Ashley said she couldn?t help but wonder what other surprises her husband had in store. “There are ones we still don?t know about it,” she said.

million years in the making. At their highest, the cliffs soar an impressive 702 feet above the Atlantic Ocean, offering the million visitors who visit each year incredible views sure to leave hearts racing both from the beauty and the height. ● White Cliffs of Dover, UK These famous cliffs along England?s south-eastern coast are as rich in history as they are in beauty. They stand tall along the Strait of Dover, separating England from France and continental Europe. During World War I, the first bomb to hit the UK fell in Dover, and it served as a prominent location during WWII as well. And nowadays, the city is the best known for the beauty of its chalky white cliffs. ● Mount Thor, Canada The name Mount Thor may inspire fear or respect — as well it should, considering this is the steepest, tallest cliff in the world. Thor reaches an astonishing 4?101 feet above sea level, and the utter greatness of its vertical incline kept it from being successfully gone up until 1965. Today, it remains a challenging and popular place for rock climbers. ● Cliffs of Etretat, France Located along France?s Alabaster Coast, these cliffs offer more than just steep walls. Climb to the top and you?ll have views of arched rock formations, as well as scenery that inspired the famous painter Claude Monet.

C Loneliness is like a disease, and what?s worse, it?s contagious. It can spread from one person to another, according to the recent research that stresses the power of one person?s emotions to affect even people they don?t know. The new analysis, involving 4,793 people who were interviewed every two years between 2005 and 2015, showed that a friend of a lonely person was 52% more likely to develop feelings of loneliness by the time of the next interview. A friend of that person was 25% more likely, and a friend of a friend of a friend was 15% more likely. ''Loneliness is not just the property of an individual. It can be transmitted across people—even people you don?t have direct contact with,” said John T. Cacioppo, a psychologist of University of Chicago who led the study published in the December issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Loneliness has been linked to medical problems, including depression, sleep problems and generally poorer physical health. Identifying some of the causes could help reduce the emotion and improve health, experts said. Although the study did not examine how loneliness spreads, Cacioppo said another research has provided clues. “Let?s say for whatever reason you get lonely. You then interact with other people in a more negative fashion. That puts them in a negative mood and makes them more likely to interact with other people in a negative fashion and they minimize their social ties and become lonely,” Cacioppo said. According to Cacioppo, loneliness spread more easily among women than men, perhaps because women were more likely to express emotions. Lonely people become less and less trusting others. This makes it more and more difficult for them to make friends—and more likely that society will reject them. Therefore, it is important to recognize and deal with loneliness. Cacioppo emphasizes people who have been pushed to the edges of society should receive help to repair their social networks.
28. It can be concluded from the first .paragraph that ___________ .
A. loneliness spreads in social networks
B. emotions are only transmitted between friends C. more and more people are suffering from loneliness D. loneliness is actually a kind of disease 29. According to Cacioppo, lonely people ____ ___ . A. rely heavily on others B. are more likely to trust others C. are less likely to be rejected by friends D. will probably be deserted by society 30. The word “ minimize” in Paragragh 5 is closest in meaning to ______________ .
A. increase B. reduce C. create D. keep
31. What should lonely people do to get rid of loneliness? ' A. Refuse the help given by others. B. Admit and try to solve it. C. Interact with others more negatively. D. Express emotions more often.
D With courses on David Beckham and Harry Potter on offer at famous universities, it comes as no surprise that students are now able to learn the art of the perfect selfie(自拍）. The concept of taking selfies gained great popularity. It soon exploded on the Internet, and people started crazily to take images that had them as the primary item of focus. The trend became so popular that it even inspired a song,“SELHE” by the Chainsmokers, which racked up 267 million views on YouTube. In fact, Twitter declared 2014 as “the year of the selfie”. Just like the art of photography can be studied and improved, City Literary Institute, a well-known college in London, felt it needed to educate people on the fine art of taking the perfect selfie and officially started to offer a first-ever course on that. The four-session course will cost ? 132 (? 106 for seniors), but the fee won?t even include a free selfie-stick, a tool that is rapidly gaining acceptance for serious selfie-takers. It is open to all enthusiastic and self-obsessed
photographers. As part of the new course, self-absorbed photographers will be taught “valuable life skills^ to prepare themselves to face a world which could present a photo opportunity at any point. Apart from offering the much-needed but seldom-sought guidance on the best angles and lighting, the course promises to improve your critical understanding of the “selfie”. There will also be a brief exploration into the concepts of “identity, self-hood and memory” as well as the opportunity to “develop new ideas to you?re your photography more relevant to your aims,' But the selfie enthusiasts must be prepared to share their photos, as organizers said a critique(评论）of students? work would form an important role in the learning process.
32. Learning to take selfies at universities isn't a surprise because _____________. A. taking selfies is popular nowadays B. many people take photos crazily C. the perfect selfie has exploded on the Intenet D. courses on some famous persons have been offered 33. City Literary Institute offers courses on taking selfies to ____________ .
A. attract people to study there B. teach people to master the art C. follow the latest fashion D. be the first to offer such courses
34. What can be inferred about the course in the passage? A. It makes students get to know the concept of beauty. B. It offers the steps on how to take photos. C. Students taking the course are likely to take better selfies. D. Students? critical understanding of selfie is promised to improve. 35. Who can have access to the course on taking selfies? A. Anyone who shows passion for taking selfies. B. Anyone who is a full-time student of the college. C. Only young photographers who are interested in it. D. Only those who are good at taking photos.
