Traditionally reserved for lords and high-ranking monks, Tsethang serge has been a symbol of status in Tibet since the 1300s. But the craft of weaving the fabric became obsolete in the 1970s and for decades only existed in memory. Until 2007, when Pasang, a Tibetan living where the cloth originated in Tsethang, Nedong County, was talking with one of the town's elders while teaching a traditional painting class. "He told how much he wished the Tsethang serge could be preserved," Pasang recalls. Shortly after, Pasang became obsessed with the traditional craft, spending two years searching for weavers capable of creating the special cashmere fabric.

Most weavers were dead. The few survivors had not weaved for more than 20 years. Pasang managed to put together five weavers in their 80s, who gathered to rebuild the tools and retrace the 18 procedures of the complex weaving with their memory. The fabric was invented in the 1350s at the Tsethang Temple, when monks modified the weaving techniques of the more common traditional Tibet Pulu fabrics. It is much thinner, finer and smoother, but the weaving is extremely complex and time-consuming. It takes 40 days to weave the fabric for one outfit, Pasang said. The fabric uses the best wool from the back and neck of Tibetan sheep or goat. Fine weaving plus quality raw material makes the fabric tender, smooth, durable and static free, he added. When he spent all his savings in building a workshop for weaving the Tsethang serge, his sole goal was to preserve the tradition. But the fabric turned out to be as marvelous as the elders remembered. Its fame soon spread by word of mouth. 63. Most probably, “obsolete” in the second paragraph means _____. A. superb B. old-fashioned C. expensive D. obvious 64. Who first had the idea of preserving Tsethang serge? A. Some old Tibetans B. A man named Pasang from Han nationality C. Pasang, a Tibetan D. Weavers of serge 65. How could Passang create serge when most weavers were dead? A. He gathered some old weavers together and retraced the prodedures of the weaving B. He found some old womenn weavers to tell the weaving procedure from their memory C. Some old weavers helped him to find the serge they weaved when young D. Passang bought the serge the old weavers made 66. What is the main idea of the second paragraph from the bottom?

A. The development and the history of the serge B. The reason why the fabric is valuable C. It takes long to weave the fabric for one outfit D. The fabric uses quality raw material D A study now lends support to the idea that meal-time distractions (分散注意) can mask the clues that we

really have eaten quite enough. Moreover, it finds, the

caloric fallout of not paying attention to what we’re eating doesn’t necessarily end when a meal is over. Rose Cooper from England, and her colleagues gathered 22 men and an equal number of women for an experiment. Each person dined alone, continuously receiving nine small shares of food items. These ranged from cheese twists and potato chips to carrots, cherry tomatoes and sandwiches or sausage rolls. Because the goal was to test the potential impacts of distraction on fullness, the researchers randomly assigned half of the participants to eat in front of a computer—and to gain as many wins as possible at the “card” game. Everyone else was told to focus on the sensory qualities of their meal. According to their instructions, the participants ate all of the food given to them. Yet people who played a computer game during lunch found their meal less filling than the mindful eaters had. Game players also swallow down twice as many cookies, almost an hour later, when they were allowed all the dessert they wanted (in the name of a taste test). The British scientists present their findings in the February American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The real question is why distracted eating should impact snacking. It appears, the scientists say, that memory plays some tricky role in how we register what we eat and the degree to which it satisfies.Interestingly, eight years

ago, Britta Barkeling of Huddinge University in Stockholm and her colleagues reported somewhat related findings. Their 18 overweight subjects had no choice other than to get rid of everything but lunch, on one day—because they were blindfolded. Compared to a day when they could view what they were dining on, these people consumed

only three quarters as many calories. Yet even hours afterward, they reported being no less full than on the day they had been able to see their plates. Of course dining in the dark isn’t practical. And sometimes what we eat doesn’t really invite our absolute attention. But there is certainly a growing mountain of data indicating that mindless eating is a waste of resources, a risk to our waistlines—and a costly threat to health. 67.Rose Cooper and her colleagues did the experiment in order to _______. A.show that all the people enjoy snacks B.prove that playing computer games is harmful while dining C.find possible effects of distraction on fullness D.test the impacts of eating snacks on different people 68.Which is the most effective way to concentrate on your food when dining? A.Viewing your food. C.Playing computer games. B.Blindfolding your eyes. D.Eating by oneself.

69.The reason why distracted eating influences snacking may be that ________. A.you eat less in that case C.you have consumed more calories B.you are cheated by your memory D.you digest what you’ve eaten faster

70.We can conclude from the passage that ________. A.distracted eating may
