To support a new smart electric grid(电网) in the city, 300,000 smart meters have been installed, and all Chicago residents will have one by 2017. When completed, the grid is expected to reduce energy waste and save customers US$170 million. Special computer software has helped reduce the city’s crime rate. The city’s open data portal has been used to build apps that tell citizens where to get a flu shot
and alert them that their street is about to be swept, among other things.
Geneva, Switzerland Population: 196,257
Geneva is testing a new electric bus system called the Tosa, a 133-person vehicle that does not require overhead electrical wires. At certain bus stops along its route, overhead high-speed charging stations deliver 400 kilowatts of power in less than 15 seconds. During a 10-month test of one bus line the Tosa traveled more than 8,000 miles and charged more than 4,200 times without major problems.
Hamburg, Germany Population: 1.8 million Hamburg is working to make its port smarter by improving traffic flow and the transportation of goods. The city is working to develop several pilot projects(实验项目)， including a system to manage the parking and loading of vehicle, as well as ways to make lighting more efficient, collect emissions data, and monitor railways with sensors. The city is also considering developing mobile GPS sensors to keep track of heavy machinery within the port. London, England Population: 8.4 million The UK’s largest city is predicted to reach 10 million residents by 2030. TO prepare for this growth, Mayor Boris Johnson created a special board in 2013 to implement technology aimed at addressing anticipated issues with traffic, health care, waste management and energy. London’s goals --- to build a smart grid and cut transport emissions in half by 2020---are ambitious but build on earlier successes. The city has dealt with congestion(拥堵)by charging a fee for driving in central business areas during the busiest times of the day.

What does the writer intend to tell us? A. The judgment of a goal should be made free from prejudice. B. Cities around the world are doing wonderful things with technology. C. Big cities should take measures to protect the environment. D. Vehicles have not only made our lives easier but also caused a lot of problems. B

Their skin color ranges anything between light green and dark green，depending on the temperature of the place where they live and the co1or of the environment around where they live,as it’s supposed to make them difficult to be seen by their natural enemies．They come out only at night to hunt， feed and mate． During the day， they find dark， wet areas to sleep in． They aren’t seen at all during the winter． As the Australian tree frog isn’t equipped with teeth．it cannot tear apart its prey(猎物)．It needs to feed on food that can fit in its mouth．Therefore its diet consists of insects，such as spiders，and flies，and small animals， such as other frogs，bats and sometimes even mice．For the smaller prey，they use their sticky tongues to shoot at the close range prey．For larger prey, they attack the prey and force it into their mouths with their hands. They also have some natural enemies that feed on them． The Australian law protects the tree frog by giving it a protected status The IUCN International Union for Conservation of Nature)，however，gives it a“least concern”status．The broad range of habitats(栖息地)that the frog can survive in and its long life ensure that this frog won’t lose population． This creature is really a very popular pet If you get an Australian green tree frog as a pet，do remember to feed it in proper amounts and let it loose for exercise． 28.

It has been declared an endangered species by the IUCN． D A poor set of curtains may not just mean you wake up too early--- they could also make you fat. Sleeping in a room with too much light has been linked to an increased risk of piling on the pounds, a study shows. Greater exposure to light at night raised bout body mass index and waist size in more than 113,000 women taking part in the British study. The study fol lowed the women for 40 years to identify root causes of breast cancer. Obesity is a known risk factor for the disease. “The associations we saw in our study between light exposure at night and obesity are very interesting. We cannot yet tell at this stage what the reason for the associations is, but the results open up an interesting direction for research.” Said Prof. Anthony Swerdlow, from the Institute of Cancer Research. “ One possible explanation is that the light is interrupting the body clock,
which stems from our evolutionary past ( 进化历程). We were active when it was light in the day and restful when it was dark at night. ” Other research has found the effect of night-time lightning on the body may contribute to unhappy feelings. But it’s too early to suggest that sleeping in the dark will help prevent obesity, a known risk factor for breast cancer. The findings are reported in the American Journal of epidemiology. Previous research has drawn similar conclusions. A team at Ohio State University examined how night-time light affects weight, body fat and glucose icose intolerance (葡萄糖过敏) in mice. They found that continuing exposure to even a little night-time light caused increases in all three aspects. Light changes mood, physical strength and even the way we process food in a 24-hour cycle. Artificial light is known to interrupt the body clock by delaying the production of the sleep hormone melatonin(睡眠荷尔蒙退黑激素). So there is no harm in trying to make bedrooms darker. 32. What does the underlined part “piling on the pounds” in the first paragraph mean? A. Putting pounds into a pile. B. Filling in with pounds. C. Making a lot of money. D. Gaining body weight. 33. From the passage, we know that ________. A. Sleeping in the dark must help prevent obesity B. Lighting at night makes people happy C. Night-time light may affect human beings and mice D. it is easy for women to become fat and have cancer 34. The most possible cause of the interruption of the body clock is ________. A. The sleep hormone melatonin B. Unhappy feelings C. Man-made light at night D. Glucose intolerance 35. The passage is mainly about_________. A. The evolutionary past of man B. Obesity and breast cancer C.Different research and conclusions D. Negative effects of night-time light 第二节 (共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分) 根据短文内容， 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项， 选项中有两项为多余 选项。 You have some great ideas. But they don’t come out because of what your friends say or because you think that only a few people can be creative genius(天才). And, you, of course, think that you couldn’t be one of them. 36 Anyone who is a creative genius will tell you that creativity is very much like a muscle that needs to be developed. 37 On the other hand, keep working at it, and this skill will soon be ready for action whenever you need it. So how do you develop your own personal style of creative thinking? You should realize that your brain has a greater capacity (容量) and a higher speed than the world’s biggest and fastest computer. 38 Read, watch and listen to everything around you —good and bad. The more you know, the more you’ll want to know, and the more your brain will be exercised. Try something new every day. 39 You need to step out of your comfort zone (舒适地带) more and more each day.
Follow these suggestions, and begin thinking beyond your "limits" from today. 40 Who knows, your idea might be the next great idea to change the world. A. But actually, this is not true at all. B. Your constructive ideas should be accepted by others. C. So it’s important to get as much information as you can every day. D. You’ll soon have a life full of interesting and exciting adventures. E. A good social environment can influence your creative thinking positively. F. Let your experiences show you more about the world and people around you. G. If you don’t learn how to develop creative thinking, this skill, just like a muscle, will become poor and useless. 第三部分 英语知识运用(共两节，满分 45 分) 第一节 完形填空(共 20 小题；每小题 1.5 分，满分 30 分) 阅读下面短文，从短文后各题所给的四个选项 (A、B、C 和 D)中，选出可以填入空白处 的最佳选项，并在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 第 II 卷 注意事项：用 0.5 毫米黑色笔迹的签字笔将答案写在答题卡上。写在本试卷上无效。 “Tell me the story of me, Momma,” my daughter always 41 when we snuggled(依偎) into my great-grandmother’s rocking chair at the end of the day. “The first time I saw your beautiful face, it was 42 covered by a blue-and-white hat, 43 by a pale blue blanket.

书面表达 One Possible Version It goes without saying that eloquence plays an increasingly important part in modern society. Since wherever we go, we have to communicate with other people, expressing ourselves and exchanging views. Here are some tips to help us to become more eloquent. First of all, read more books. By reading we can accumulate knowledge and information in our mind and then we’ll have much to say. Secondly, listen to more speeches. Speeches offer us not only interesting contents but also speaking skills. Thirdly , catch every chance to express yourself. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. The more we practice speaking,
the more eloquent we’ll become. So just open your mouth and speak your mind. You’ll become an eloquent speaker sooner or later.
