Four years ago, I would feel delighted after escaping one of those dreaded 2-mile gym fitness runs. As a short girl, I’d always been the last runner who struggled to finish the very labored laps. At that time, if you had told me that I would one day run a marathon, I’d have told you that I had a better chance of winning the lottery (彩票). Then I met Mrs. Gray and everything changed. She was 50 years old, going through chemotherapy for her cancer, and still managed to run 30 miles a week. I figured that if Mrs. Gray could run 6 miles at a time, I could run at least one or two. I started to walk a 2-mile route around my neighborhood. Two months later, I finished the whole route, running, for the first time. I felt exhausted, but I also felt nice. Over the next several years, I continued to push each run for a few extra minutes, slowly building my endurance (耐性). Those last few minutes would often be exhausting: my lungs begging for air and my mind wrestling against my body. Despite the physical and mental battle, I loved every minute of these runs. I knew I was not only building physical and mental endurance, but also developing a passion for running. A runner was born, and at 4’10” and 110 pounds, she was one who did not fit the tall and thin ideal. It didn’t matter to me; my heart was in it completely. I decided I would train for the Flagstar Bank Marathon. I knew I was finally on the road to conquering my “Everest”. The prospect of crossing the finish line after running 26.2 miles helped me

truly comprehend my capabilities. Race day finally came, and I was filled with excitement and worry. I did struggle through the last few miles, but after my journey, there was no doubt in my mind that I’d finish.

If you have just joined eBay, or been there a long time wondering how it all works and who are these people making all this money, you’re not alone. The majority of people on eBay can see there’s something exciting happening, understand that this is the biggest shopping and trading centre in the world, but can’t for the life of them work out how to get inside the door. The reason why the majority of people out there have the wrong time and date on them is because people like to believe they know everything and don’t need to be told. So, if there is an eBay secret, it’s to learn, make mistakes and like everything else we do in life, practice. It may not be for you. You may get fed up, but at least you gave it a go. Read and absorb EVERYTHING eBay provides on the website. Try it out, several times, practice until it becomes second nature, like the day time job you do. That looked impossible once too. When you’ve got all that, take the advice of people who are obviously making it work on eBay, the Powersellers. The worst thing that can happen when you ask is that they say “no”. That doesn’t mean anything, except of course, no. Move onto the next person, and the next until you find someone willing to lend a hand. And when someone months later e-mails you looking for help on eBay, you’re the Powerseller

A quarter of households in Britain — more in the larger cities, and a majority in some inner cities — live without a car. Imagine how quality of life would improve for cyclists and everyone else if traffic were removed from areas where people could practically choose to live without cars. Does this sound unrealistic? Did you know many European cities are already doing it? Vauban in Germany is one of the largest car-free neighborhoods in Europe, home to more than 5,000 people. If you live in the district, you are required to confirm once a year that you do not own a car — or, if you do own one, you must buy a space in a multi-storey car park on the edge of the district. One space was provided for every two households at the beginning, but car ownership has fallen over time, and many of these spaces are now empty. Vehicles are allowed down the residential (住宅的) streets at walking pace to pick up and deliver, but not to park. In practice, vehicles are rarely seen moving here. It has been taken over by kids as young as four or five, playing, skating and cycling without direct supervision (监督). Most of the European car-free areas are smaller and “purer” than Vauban: vehicles are physically prevented from entering the streets where people live. Exceptions are made for emergency vehicles and removal vans but not for normal deliveries, which are made on foot or cycle trailer. A few parking spaces are available to buy and a few are reserved for car club vehicles. In all the examples I have studied, cycling is an important means of transport. Car-free areas of this kind, with anything from a couple of hundred to more than a thousand residents, exist in Amsterdam, Vienna, Cologne, Hamburg and Nuremberg, among others. There is even a small one in Edinburgh. Car-free UK was set up to promote European-style car-free development in this country. We have recently run public meetings in London to set up a new car-free association for London, which is

beginning to look at areas of the city from which traffic could be removed. We know considerable potential demand exists for traffic-free housing in London, and probably in a number of other major cities. Where else do you think might be suitable? 49. We know from the passage that . A. fewer and fewer Vauban residents own cars B. cars are not allowed to park in Vauban’s streets C. traffic management problems are serious in Vauban D. cars are prevented from entering the streets in Vauban 50. Most of the European car-free areas A. have more residents than Vauban B. allow emergency vehicles on the streets C. have no parking spaces for car owners D. use buses as the primary means of transport 51.

Companies have been tracking our online behavior for almost as long as there’s been an Internet, often using our online footsteps whenever we search or buy online. By monitoring the buying behavior
高一英语听力能力竞赛试题 第7页 共8页
of consumers (消费者) who visit their websites, stores are able to better target online and e-mail promotions (促销活动) to predict what consumers are most likely to buy. Tracking technology has advanced so much that almost all our web habits can be monitored. Privacy concerns abound (有很多), and several privacy and consumer groups are urging Congress to make rules on what data can and can’t be collected and for how long. A survey of 1,000 consumers released last month by professors from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of California-Berkeley found almost 70% didn’t agree with online behavioral tracking by advertisers, and even more were opposed after they were told how the tracking was done. But the National Retail Federation says that whatever concerns shoppers may have, they’re not avoiding online shopping because of them. In a survey of 2,600 consumers released last week, NRF asked for the primary reasons why shoppers might not be increasing their online spending this year. Privacy concerns and worries about “online tracking” were named by only 0.1% of shoppers, the smallest factor. The cost of shipping, on the other hand, was the biggest concern, with almost 23% citing it. Critics argue that people aren’t even more worried because they don’t understand how influential the tracking can be, while industry officials argue those who worry often don’t recognize the benefits. Victoria Thornton of Dayton, Ohio, says she appreciates getting ads based on what she’s searched for online, but she is concerned about “personal information being stored.” Her mother feels even more strongly, she says, “The thought of something documenting and then anticipating (期望) my interests upsets me.” Natoli, who has an eBay store, isn’t worried. She likes it when Ann Taylor and Victoria’s Secret suggest other things she might like to buy and has bought more from both stores. And the targeted promotions she gets from booksellers Barnes & Noble and Borders really can resonate (引起反响). She says one of them recently sent her an e-mail saying, “What’s the matter? You don’t like books anymore?” It included an offer for $20 off her next shopping. “So of course, I had to order,” she says, laughing. 57. We can learn from the two surveys that . A. most consumers disliked being tracked by advertisers B. few advertisers knew how online tracking is done C. online spending has increased by 0.1% this year D. the cost of shipping has dropped by 23% this year 58. The underlined word “them” in Paragraph 4 refers to A. professors A. an online store C. a bookseller A. Online searching habits. C. The future of online stores. B. advertisements C. concerns . 59. It can be inferred from the passage that “Ann Taylor” is B. a friend of Natoli’s D. an advertiser B. Online behavioral tracking. D. Advantages of online advertising. . D. shoppers
