(一) Kareem Abdul?Jabbar was one of the best basketball players in history. He was the NBA's most valuable player six times and a 19?time All?Star. When he retired in 1989, he was the NBA's all?time leading scorer with 38,387 points. That record has still to be broken. After retirement, Jabbar began scoring in the literary world. He has written seven best?selling books. In his new children's book What Color Is My World?,he shines_the_spotlight_on African?American inventors whose achievements often went unnoticed. A reporter recently interviewed him in New York City. R: The title of your new book is What Color Is My World?, but the subtitle is The Lost History of African? American Inventors. Why do you say it's a lost history? K: African?American inventors made some very significant contributions to American life and world culture, but they're not acknowledged. So I think I should put something in the spotlight. R: Why did you choose to present this information in the form of a children's book? K: I thought kids, especially African?American kids, needed to know this information. They should get this information at an early age so that they can have an idea of what's possible. So many kids are told that sports and entertainment are the fields that they should go into, and everything else is ignored. I wanted to put something out there that gave them a broader picture of what was possible. R: How did you combine facts with a good story? How did you decide on which inventors to include? K: The inventors I chose all made significant contributions to American life. So, everybody likes ice cream, but nobody knows about the guy who invented the ice cream scoop(勺子). Everybody likes potato chips, but nobody really knows that a black cook invented potato chips. Things like that get through to people because these are things that are a part of their everyday life. Once they see black people are involved in inventing it, it changes things. 1.The underlined phrase “shines the spotlight on” in the second paragraph can be replaced by “________”. A.directs people's attention to B.is very interested in C.thinks highly of D.appeals to people not to disturb 2.Why did Jabbar write the book What Color Is My World? A.To provide an instructive literary book for parents. B.To make people recognize the contributions African?Americans made. C.To show he also has literary talent besides the talent in basketball. D.To raise money for poor African?American kids. 3.What did Jabbar intend to tell African?American kids in his book? A.Information about their early age. B.Fields they shouldn't go into. C.Things that can be ignored. D.Ideas of what is possible.

A.not everybody likes ice cream and potato chips B.ice cream and potato chips are both invented by a black cook C.his book may change people's attitude to black people D.things in everyday life are easier to be described in books (二) Patti Page, the top?selling female artist of the 1950s with more than 100 million records sold, died on January 3rd, 2013, when she was 86. She was one of the most beloved singers of the post?war era. Take her The Tennessee Waltz for example, it sold more than 10 million copies and was her biggest hit. Born in Claremore, Oklahoma, a small town near Tulsa, Page originally dreamed of a career in commercial art. Her first job in the art department at a local radio station soon led to performing on her own 15?minute program. At age 20, Page was discovered by big?band leader Jack Rael, who quit his job to become her manager. In 1948, she signed her first recording contract with Mercury Records and two years later enjoyed her first hit record. She stayed with Mercury for the next 14 years and recorded hit after hit including With My Eyes Wide Open, I'm Dreaming and Old Cape Cod. Her last hit was Hush?Hush, Sweet Charlotte, recorded for the Bette Davis' movie of the same name. And then, there was Doggie in the Window. The creative tune was a huge hit, but with its repeated barking sounds and silly lyrics(歌词), the song has been used by many people as an example of all that was wrong with pop music in the early 1950s. Throughout the 1950s, Patti Page made regular appearances on television variety shows and in 1957 she was chosen to host the musical program The Big Record. The following year, Page appeared in her own CBS television series, The Patti Page Show. She continued to record and perform into the 21st century, most recently releasing an album of songs for children, a Christmas record, and a new “best” of collection. Besides music, Patti Page did a bit of acting. She co?starred with the Oscar?winning Burt Lancaster in Elmer Gantry, and also starred on stage in the musical play Annie Get Your Gun. 1.According to the passage, Patti Page ________.

Moresco struggled to make that long walk a few blocks east.He studied acting, turned out for all the cattle calls—and during the decade of the 1970s made a total of $2,000.“I wasn't a good actor, but I had a driving need to do something different wit h my life,” he says. He moved to Hollywood, where he drove a cab and worked as a bartender.“My father said, ‘Stop this craziness and get a job; you have a wife and a daughter.’” But Moresco kept working at his chosen craft. Then in 1983 his younger brother Thomas was murdered in a mob?linked killing.Moresco moved back to his old neighbourhood and started writing as a way to explore the pain and the patrimony(遗产) of Hell's Kitchen.Half?Deserted Streets, based on his brother's killing, opened at a small off?Broadway theatre in 1988.A Hollywood producer saw it and asked him to work on a screenplay. His reputation grew, and he got enough assignments to move back to Hollywood.By 2003, he was again out of work and out of cash when he got a call from Paul Haggis, a director who had befriended him.Haggis wanted help writing a film about the country after September 11.The two worked on the writing, but every studio in town turned it down.They kept pitching (竭力推销) it. Studio executives, however, thought no one wanted to see a severe, honest vision of race and fear and lives in collision in modern America. Moresco believed so strongly in the script that he borrowed money and sold his house.He and Haggis kept pushing.At last the writers found an independent film producer who would take a chance, but the upfront money was too little.Moresco delayed his salary. Crash slipped into the theatres in May 2005, and quietly became both a hit and a critical success.It was nominated for six Academy Awards and won three—Best Picture, Best Film Editing and Best Writing (Original Screenplay) by Paul Haggis and the kid from Hell's Kitchen. At age 54, Bobby Moresco became an overnight success.“If you have something you want to do in life, don't think about the problems,” he says, “think about other ways to get it done.” 1.Rearrange the following statements in terms of time order: a. His work Half?Deserted Streets drew attention as it opened at a small off?Broadway theatre. b. Unexpectedly Crash became both a hit and a huge success. c. He moved to Hollywood to be a taxi driver and a waiter. d. He started to learn acting with the belief of doing something different. e. His younger brother Thomas was killed in conflict among bullies.
