Fear gripped the soldier as he saw his lifelong friend fall in battle. Caught in a trench(战 壕)with continuous gunfire over his head, the solider asked his officer if he might go out into the no-man?s-land between the trenches to bring his fallen comrade back. “You can go,” said the officer, “but I don?t think it will be worth it. Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your life away.” The officer?s advice didn?t matter, and the soldier went anyway. Luckily he managed to reach his friend, and bring him back. As the two of them fell together to the bottom of the trench, the officer checked the wounded soldier, and then looked kindly at his friend. “I told you it wouldn?t be worth it,” he said. “Your friend is dead and you are mortally wounded.” “It was worth it, though, sir.” said the soldier. “What do you mean by saying ?worth it??” responded the officer. “Your friend is dead.” “Yes, sir,” the solider answered. “But it was worth it because when I got to him, he was still alive and I had the satisfaction of hearing him saying, “ Jim…, I knew you?d come.” Many times in life, whether a thing is worth doing or not really depends on how you look at it. Take up all your courage and do something your heart tells you to do so that you may not feel sorry for not doing it later in your life. 21. We can know from Paragraph1 that___________. A. the situation was dangerous B. the soldier?s friend was dead C. the soldier didn?t seem brave D. the no-man?s-land was very safe 22. What was the officer?s attitude towards the soldier?s decision? A. Supportive. B. Admiring C. Negative D. Curious 23. What can we infer from the underlined sentence? A. He understood his friend. B. His friend survived the war. C. His friend had complete trust in him. D. He wanted to be praised by the officer. 24. The article is mainly a story of _____________. A. a serious officer B. great friendship C. strict discipline D. a bloody war
B If you have spent any time around babies, so we are talking children three to six months in age, you know they can express themselves. Smiling when happy, crying when - well, whenever. But do they know right from wrong? Good from bad? Do babies have a sense of morality(道德)? A scientist at Yale University says psychologists have long felt that babies knew nothing in that area. One study is changing that. These babies at Yale University`s Infant Cognition Center are here to watch a puppet(木偶) show which is designed to show examples of good and bad behavior. Watch as this puppet struggles to open a box. A green rabbit comes along and helps to open the box. Green rabbit is nice and helpful. Then, an orange rabbit comes along and slams(砰地关上) the box close. The orange rabbit is mean and unhelpful. But what does this mean to six-months old and three months old babies? After repeated shows, they are presented with two puppets. Which one will they choose? Over 80 percent of babies like the nice rabbit. So we see babies recognizing good and bad characters. But do they then try to avoid the bad guy? The good rabbit has one graham cracker （全麦 的饼干）, the bad rabbit has two. Which one will the babies choose? Over 80 percent of babies will take one cracker from the nice guy avoiding the mean guy, even though he has one more cracker. But if the mean guy has eight crackers, and the nice guy just one cracker? Now, which one will the baby choose? 65 percent of babies will take the crackers from the mean guy. 25. The writer?s attitude in the passage is _____ A. positive B. negative C. objective D. unconcerned 26. From this passage, we can know that ________ A. Babies three to six months in age don?t know how to express their happiness and sadness. B. The green rabbit is mean and unhelpful. C. Psychologists have long felt that babies 3-6 months in age knew nothing about good from bad. D. The puppet can open the box easily. 27. What can we infer from this passage about babies 3-6 months in age? A. They can?t tell right from wrong. B. In face of much more crackers, they are more likely to ignore the bad behavior. C. They like the orange rabbit. D. They prefer the orange rabbit because he has 2 crackers. 28. The purpose of writing the passage is to ____________ A. praise the babies B. introduce the result of a new study C. show disagreement with the result D. call people to care about the babies C The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. What was the first Earth Day like? Let?s hear what some people say about it? Jeffery Hollender I was a primary school student in 1970 and my school organized a great clean-up in Greenwich Village to celebrate the day. The city, which was particularly dirty back then, was really filled with excitement. There was a general feeling of possibility and a realization that it was our responsibility to keep our planet health. Peter Seligmann In 1970, I was a sophomore (二年级学生) at Rutgers University studying wild life ecology, sitting
on the lawn with hundreds of other famous people and listening to speeches about the earth, her fragility（脆弱）and the need to reduce waste, prevent the greenhouse effect and protect rainforests. Unfortunately, the lawn was littered with bottles and cups when the events ended. Renny Perdue I remember April 22, 1970 very well. One of my best friends Glenn Prickett and I were chosen by our high school art teacher to put on an Earth Day Celebration at the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, NJ. She and I did a photo essay of pollution and trash around town that was on exhibition. I remember that it was a lovely spring day and the event was a great success. The environment was not really at the top of people?s mind back then. Alison Taylor The theme of the first Earth Day in my town was raising awareness about the dangers of pollution to kids, animals and plants. Kids encouraged their parents to recycle things like newspapers, and this was before our town and cities had ever thought of requiring recycling. The theme worked for me; if I saw someone throw a piece of trash from a car window, I thought I was supposed to say something to him. 29. The speeches Peter Seligmann heard most probably focused on _______. A. the harm of the greenhouse effect B. the importance of protecting the earth C. the bad effect of littering bottles and cups D. the necessity of studying wildlife ecology 30. What can we infer from what Renny Perdue wrote? A. People didn?t really care about the environment at that time. B. People in Montclair knew nothing about the Earth Day. C. The event was a great success mainly because of his efforts. D. His classmates joined the Earth Day celebration mainly for fun. 31. Who was most probably the youngest when the first Earth Day appeared? A. Renny Perdu B. Glenn Prickett C. Peter Seligmann D. Jeffery Hollender 32. After the first Earth Day in his town, Alison Taylor ______. A. pay little attention to recycling B. decided to prevent animals from dying out. C. was encouraged to care about the environment D. was chosen to collect newspapers around the town. D TOKYO---Sony has been a champion of networked television for years. These are the TVs that link to the Web and finally bridge the gap between PCs and the living room., which let users surf the Web, watch TV and videos, view photos and even wirelessly control other gadgets. But Sony has always failed to make users believe that TV-based Web surfing is the way forward. Now, after years of failure, Sony?s TV dreams have taken another unexpected turn: a partnership with Google, the Internet giant. “We realized that we?d be left behind if we didn?t try something completely different,” Yoshihisa Ishida, president of Sony?s business group said. “Then we met Google.” That union produced the first models of the “ Google TV", which went on sale earlier this month in the United States. On top of regular TV programming, users of Sony?s Google TVs can do everything online----they can post messages on Twitter, stream movies, read the news and search the
Web. Using the Google TV platform, Sony hopes to draw on its vast library of films and music to make more money from services like videos and music streaming. Experts doubt on whether Google and Sony can at last sell consumers the idea of surfing the Internet on their TV sets. There are challenges, especially in the form of powerful rivals. Apple, Logitech, Roku and Boxee all offer technology to link television to the Internet. Moreover, because Google TV is an open platform, other producers are also able to make their own models. Just 3 percent of people own or plan to buy one, and almost two-thirds have not heard of them, according to the technology research firm, Forester. Still, experts say that for many reasons, Internet-connected sets could finally take off. Wireless technology and advances in processors have made hardware more powerful, yet cheaper and easier to set up. Forrester expects to be in 43 million United States homes by 2015, up from million this year. 33. Why does Sony cooperate with Google at last? A. People don?t think Sony?s TV-based Web surfing so advanced. B. Sony has made many errors in their products in the past years. C. Sony?s products wouldn?t have advantages over others? if not. D. Sony wants to try the new technology that links TVs to the Web. 34. Which of the following is right according to the passage? A. Google TV can only do everything online. B. Not all the consumers like Google TV. C. Google TV has been known to the world. D. Google TV?s platform is unique in the world. 35. Why do the experts say Internet-connected sets will be popular? A. Because of the development of hardware and its low price. B. Because of the good service that the Internet provides. C. Because of the heated competition between producers. D. Because of the modern technology. 36. What may be the best title of the passage? A. Sony reaches out for help with TVs B. The future of TVs C. Doubts on Sony?s future TVs D. A big success-----Sony?s TVs
A neighborhood barbershop might seem to some Americans like a thing of the past. Today men often get their hair cut at the same salons as women. But the traditional barbershop still holds a special place in black culture. A barbershop is a place of trust where men can talk about things they might not want women to hear. This is why black-owned barbershops increasingly offer more than just a haircut. Men also receive health education and testing that could save their life. Right now a program called the Black Barbershop Health Outreach Program is traveling to fifty cities across the United States. A doctor started the program in California in 2007. It tests men for diabetes, high blood pressure and other conditions, and provides information about how to stay healthy. Black men are three times more likely than white men in the United States to die from high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. They are also more likely to get diabetes.
A new study has examined the barbershop health-care model in Dallas, Texas. The study involved about 1300 customers at 17 black barbershops. Researchers had the barbers at eight of the shops continue to just give haircuts. The other barbers learned how to measure blood pressure and offered it with every haircut. If a customer had a high blood pressure, the barber would intervene(干预). The customer would be urged to see a doctor. If the man did not have a doctor, then a visit to one would be set up. Customers who went to a doctor would get their next haircut free of charge. The study lasted ten months. All of the men had their blood pressure taken at the start. They also received educational materials about hypertension. The study found that blood pressure rates decreased at the shops where the barbers intervened and also at those where they did not. But the difference was in the amount. 37. In a barbershop at present, you can get the following services EXCEPT____________. A. a haircut B. health education C. economic information D. health care 38. It?s _________who started the health care model. A. a barbershop owner B. a doctor C. a patient D. a barber 39. If you had a high blood pressure, the barber would_________. A. intervene(干预) your life B. let other persons visit you C. give you a free haircut D. advise you to see a doctor 40. We can infer from the passage that the amount of blood pressure rate in the shops where the barbers intervened the customers is _______than the others. A. larger B. smaller C. equal D. uncertain

As I?ve __53__ in my earlier article, “Brick walls are not there to keep us out.” Obstacles, brick walls or mountains, whatever we __54__ them, are there only to see the __55__ we need for our journey. Yes, giving up is never the solution, __56__ it should be okay for us to __57__ and let go at times. Our persistence(毅力) shouldn?t be changed into stubbornness (固执) over time. We should give up after a careful study of all __58__ situations, saying, “This is certainly not going to __59__; there is no point __60__it anymore; spend our time and effort on other goals of life.” I think giving up should always be the last possible choice in life?s goals and journeys, though. 41.

First, helping others is a virtue，and it will make our society more harmonious. Just imagine what a terrible world it would be if everyone was lionhearted! Second， to some extent， helping others is helping oneself. We may come across some trouble and need others? h elp some day. If everyone turns a blind eye to our trouble and turns a deaf ear to our appeal for aid just because we are strangers to them，what shall we do at that time? Therefore, we should be glad to help others. However，helping others may sometimes bring us trouble or even put us in danger. So when we are helping others，we should also protect ourselves and offer our help in
an appropriate way. For example, to help someone who was robbed, calling the police is a much wiser way than chasing the robbers alone.
