in the howling wind. On a freezing afternoon, everything changed. Every once in a while, the sub-zero temperatures seal(密封) a 38 windows shut.

Drivers don’t exactly enjoy having to stand outside in the cold, 39 their orders into a speaker box, when they expect to drive through on their heated leather seats. In such cases, most customers tend to show their annoyance to the employees. This woman was 40 . “I’ll get the next car’s 41 as well,” she said as she came up to the window to pay. She stood outside, 42 much snow on her hair. Though she was obviously freezing, her bright 43 lit up her face like a fire. “You can’t 44 their drinks,” I said, confused and tired. “No, but I’ll buy them,” she said. “pay it forward and all that.” Completely puzzled, I charged her as 45 , and when the next customer arrived at the window I explained what had just happened. I watched as his 46 changed ---- first angry to be out in the cold, then 47 at the random( 偶遇的) act of kindness, and finally, delighted by his 48 . “I suppose I’ll pay for the next order then,” he replied, nodding and waving at the impatient driver 49 him. He 50 over the cash and received his pre-paid hot drink. The trend continued. Customers arrived annoyed, only to leave with 51 and pleasure. Some were shocked to spend much more than they had expected, receiving their order for less than half the price. Five vehicles passed, then ten, then twenty. No one refused to pay. Customers stood at my window 53 a handful of change to buy drinks for complete stranger. Cars drove off, honking(鸣笛) and 54 their thanks.

第三部分:阅读理解(共 15 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 30 分) 请认真阅读下列短文,从短文后各题所给的 A、 B、C、 D 四个选项中,选出最佳选项,并 在答题卡上将该项涂黑。 A Cell Phones Are the New Cigarettes When you get in your car, you reach for it. When you’re at work, you take a break to have a moment alone with it. When you get into a lift, you play with it. Cigarettes? Cup of coffee? No, it’s the third most addictive thing in modern life, the cell phone. And experts say it is becoming more difficult for many people to curb their longing to hug it more tightly than most of their personal relationships. With its shiny surface, its smooth and satisfying touch, its air of complexity, the cell phone connects us to the world even as it disconnects us from people three feet away. In just the past couple of years, the cell phone has challenged individuals, employers, phone makers and counselors (顾问)in ways its inventors in the late 1940s never imagined. The costs are becoming even more evident, and I don’t mean just the monthly bill. Dr. Chris Knippers, a counselor at the Betty Ford Center in Southern California, reports that the overuse of cell phones has become a social problem not much different from other harmful addictions: a barrier to one-on-one personal contact, and an escape from reality. Sounds extreme, but we’ve all witnessed the evidence: the pers on at a restaurant who talks on the phone through an entire meal, ignoring his kids around the table; the woman who talks on the phone in the car, ignoring her husband; the teen who texts messages all the way home from school, avoiding contact with kids all around him. Is it just rude, or is it a kind of unhealthiness? And pardon me, but how is this improving the quality of life? Jim Williams, an industrial sociologist based in Massachusetts, notes that cell-phone addiction is part of a set of symptoms in a widening gulf of personal separation. He points to a study by Duke University researchers that found one-quarter of Americans say they have no one to discuss their most important personal business with. Despite the growing use of phones, e-mail and instant messaging, in other words, Williams says studies show that we don’t have as many friends as our parents. “Just as more information has led to less wisdom, more acquaintances via the Internet and cell phones have produced fewer friends,” he says. If the cell phone has truly had these effects, it’s because it has become very widespread. Consider that in 1987, there were only 1 million cell phones in use. Today, something like 300 million Americans carry them. They far outnumber wired phones in the United States. 56. Which of the following best explains the title of the passage? A. Cell phone users smoke less than they used to. B. Cell phones have become as addictive as cigarettes. C. More people use cell phones than smoke cigarettes. D. Using cell phone is just as cool as smoking cigarettes. 57. The underlined word “curb” in Paragraph 2 means _______.
5

A. rescue

B. ignore

C. develop

D. control

58. The example of a woman talking on the phone in the car supports the idea that ___. A. women use cell phones more often than men B. talking on the phone while driving is dangerous C. cell phones do not necessarily bring people together D. cell phones make one-on-one personal contact easy B It doesn’t kill germs better than cooler water, but turning tap temperatures high, the US burns carbon equal to the emissions of Barbados(巴巴多斯,国名). People typically wash their hands seven times a day in the United States, but they do it at a far higher temperature than is necessary to kill germs, a new study says. The energy waste is equivalent to the fuel use of a small country. It’s cold and flu season, when many people are concerned about avoiding germs. But forget what you think you know about hand washing, say researchers at Vanderbilt University. Chances are good that how you clean up is not helping you stay healthy; it is helping to make the planet sick. Amanda R. Carrico, a research assistant professor at the Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and Environment in Tennessee, told National Geographic that hand washing is often “a case where people act in ways that they think are in their best interest, but they in fact have inaccurate beliefs or outdated perceptions.” Carrico said, “It’s certainly true that heat kills bacteria, but if you were going to use hot water to kill them it would have to be too hot for you to tolerate.” She explained that boiling water, 212° F (99.98° C), is sometimes used to kill germs - for example, to clean drinking water that might be polluted with germs. But “hot” water for hand washing is generally within 104° F to 131° F (40° C to 55° C.) At the high end of that range, heat could kill some germs, but the sustained contact that would be required would scald the skin. Carrico said that after a review of the scientific literature, her team found “no evidence that using hot water that a person could stand would have any benefit in killing bacteria.” Even water as cold as 40° F (4.4° C) appeared to reduce bacteria as well as hotter water, if hands were scrubbed, rinsed(冲洗)and dried properly. In fact, she noted that hot water can often have an unfavorable effect on hygiene. “Warmer water can harm the skin and affect the protective layer on the outside, which can cause it to be less resistant to bacteria,” said Carrico. Using hot water to wash hands is therefore unnecessary, as well as wasteful, Carrico said, particularly when it comes to the environment. According to her research, people use warm or hot water 64 percent of the time when they wash their hands . Using that number, Carrico’s team calculated a significant impact on the planet. “Although the choice of water temperature during a single hand wash may appear minor, when multiplied by the nearly 800 billion hand washes performed by Americans each year, this practice results in more than 6 million metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions annually,” she
6

said. That’s roughly equal to the emissions of two coal-fired power plants, or 1,250,000 passenger vehicles, over the course of a year. It’s higher than the greenhouse gas emissions of small countries like El Salvador or Armenia, and is about equivalent to the emissions of Barbados. If all US citizens washed their hands in cooler water, it would be like eliminating the energy-related carbon emissions of 299,700 US homes, or the total annual emissions from the US zinc (锌) or lead industries. The researchers found that close to 70 percent of respondents said they believe that using hot water is more effective than warm, room temperature, or cold water, despite a lack of evidence backing that up, said Carrico. Her study noted research that showed a “strong cognitive (认知的) connection” between water temperature and hygiene in both the United States and Western Europe, compared to other countries, like Japan, where hot water is associated more with comfort than with health. The researchers published their results in the July 2013 issue of International Journal of Consumer Studies. They recommended washing with water that is at a “comfortable” temperat ure, which they noted may be warmer in cold months and cooler in hot ones. 59. What does the writer mainly focus on when writing this passage? A. Whether hot water helps kill germs effectively in hand washing. B. How hot water contributes to the serious worsening of our planet. C. Why the consumption of hot water is unnecessary and wasteful. D. What the advantages and disadvantages of using hot water are. 60. The underlined word scald in paragraph six probably means . A. burn B. improve C. soften D. wrinkle 61. According to the passage, all the following share roughly the same CO2 emissions yearly EXCEPT . A. two coal-fired power plants C. 1,250,000 passenger vehicles B. US zinc or lead industries D. El Salvador or Armenia

62. Which of the following is WRONG according to the passage? A. Boiling water at 212° F (99.98° C) works effectively in killing germs. B. Warmer water can damage the protective layer of the outside skin. C. There is much difference between cold water and hot water in reducing bacteria. D. Americans have inaccurate beliefs or outdated perceptions in hand washing. C A federal(联邦的) judge sentenced Bruce Jones to 12 years in federal prison for fraud ( 诈 骗罪). Over a 10-year period, Jones had managed to cheat thousands of people throughout the state out of almost $10 million. He advertised his fantastic ideas on TV . “For some reason,” Jones said, “TV seems to break the ice. Even though you are a total stranger to the viewer, once he sees you on TV in his home, he feels like he knows you. You enter his living room and become a trusted friend.” Jones had an imagination that wouldn’t quit. One time he showed viewers an “official government” earthquake report which “proved” that the western half of California would collapse (陷落)into the sea within three years. For $100, he said, Jones would insure your house and property for full value. Thousands of people who saw that TV ad sent him a hundred dollars each. In another TV ad, Jones claimed that he had come to an agreement with the federal and state
7

government for exclusive (独享的) air rights. He told viewers that, for only $100, they could own the first 10 miles above all their property. You would be able to charge any commercial plane that flew over your property $100 per crossing. You would also be able to charge government rockets, satellites, space shuttles, and space stations $100 for each and every violation(妨碍) of your air rights. Another time, Jones claimed to have invented a product that gets rid of calories. He show ed the viewers a spray can of “NoCal.” He said that by s imply spraying NoCal on your food, a chemical interaction would cause all the calories in the food to simply disappear within about 10 seconds. The NoCal was only $10 a can. As usual, Jones received thousands of checks in the mail. The judge told Jones that he should be ashamed of himself. Jones responded that he was very ashamed of himself, and that when he got out of prison he hoped to become a TV adviser to help people avoid getting cheated. He told the judge that he was already developing an instructional CD that, for merely $100, would save people thousands of dollars in scams (骗局). The judge nodded, and then changed Jones’ sentence from 10 years to 12 years. 63. According to Jones, he could successfully cheat many people mainly because _______. A. he promised them a large profit B. they were too eager to make money C. they believed too much in TV ads D. he was skillful in communicating with people 64. Which of the following statements is TRUE? A. Jones felt guilty and was determined to lead a new life. B. Jones was closely related to the state government. C. Western California was in danger of going under the sea. D. Jones showed unusual imagination in his tricks. 65. We can infer that people who wanted to buy “NoCal” from Jones _______. A. were mainly from low income families B. all had a rich knowledge of chemistry C. were probably interested in losing weight D. usually did the shopping through the Internet 66. The judge changed the sentence at last because _______. A. Jones was planning another big scam B. he could hardly believe what Jones had told him C. Jones had cheated more people than he expected D. he had suffered from Jones’ scams himself D Besides giving off gases and dusts into the air, humans produce waste that is poured on the environment. Often, this waste produced by major industries and people is harmful to both nature and human life. One of the main causes of the large amount of dangerous waste is that people do not realize how large a problem it is. Because it can be simply removed and sent to a landfill(废渣填埋场) , the problem is often believed to end there. In addition, industries have often shown an
8

unwillingness to find ways to deal with dangerous waste because of the related expenses. Many industries and governments build simple landfills to store waste, and often just pour waste chemicals into nearby bodies of water. Often, chemicals used for industrial production cause dangerous forms of waste. The amount of these chemicals has increased greatly in the past, but it is often difficult and expensive to get rid of these chemicals or to store them in a way safe to human life and the environment. Every year, major health problems result from dangerous waste. Sadly, it is often only after someone has died or become seriously ill that governments will take measures to reduce levels of harmful waste. Some governments have realized how serious the dangerous waste problem is and are now trying to settle this problem. They are also trying to limit the amount of waste industries are allowed to produce. Not only governments but ordinary people as well must work together to solve the problem. They can choose not to buy those products which require the production of dangerous waste, and produce less harmful waste themselves. Many scientists think that waste production can be cut. The waste can be reduced by at least one third using existing technologies and methods. 67.What would be the best title for the text ? A.Measures of Reducing Dangerous Waste B.Danger of Harmful Waste to Mankind C.Dangerous Waste and Water Pollution D.Environmental Protection 68.According to the text, people ________. A.do not produce harmful waste in their daily life B.do not know where to place the dangerous waste C.are not clear about how serious the dangerous waste problem is D.are not sure about where harmful waste ends 69.What troubles industries most in dealing with the dangerous waste problem? A. How to get government support. B. How to increase their production. C.How to store harmful waste. D.How to cut down the related costs. 70.What can be inferred from the passage? A.The polluting industries are not allowed to sell their products. B.Present technologies have settled the harmful waste products. C.Everyone should obey the government rules for the problem. D.To solve the problem requires the efforts of the whole society.

第四部分:任务型阅读(共 10 小题;每小题 l 分,满分 l0 分) 请认真阅读下列短文, 并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。 注意:每个空格只填 1 个单词。请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。 When it comes to the world of computers, green computing is becoming one of the most popular trends. But, what exactly is green computing? The term “green computing” is being used in many different markets and areas all over the world in today’s global technology. Yet, many computer users out there aren’t sure what it means. Green computing is actually pretty easy to explain and to do ---- it is basically learning to use
9

computer resources more efficiently to help the environment as well as making energy savings. The main goal of a green computing program is to reduce the use of energy and materials that harm the environment. Green computing helps to promote the use of biodegradable( 进行生物降 解的)products and recycle computer parts whenever possible. Green computing started as early as 1992, when the EPA created Energy Star, which is a voluntary labeling program that promotes energy efficient computing equipment and technologies. It was because of this program that many computer manufacturers launched sleep mode and millions of computer users began to adopt this policy to help save energy when not using their computers. The term “green computing” began to be used around the same time as well, and began to become a goal that more companies strive( 力求) to meet over the years. Several government agencies have continued to help strive for better standards for computers and companies to help promote green computing. Energy Star was actually improved in October of 2006 to make the requirements stricter for computers, and also employed a ranking system for products. Because of these new requirements, over 20 states have now established a special recycling program for old computers and electronics to help with green computing. Many of today’s IT systems ar e beginning to rely on both people and hardware to help push their computer systems toward a more green computing system to help both the company and others. This is a hard balance to achieve, as it has to satisfy users, management, and regulatory compliance(顺从). Even the disposal of computer waste is all managed so that everyone in the circle is happy with the outcome. Many companies are learning the best ways that they call go greener when it comes to their computing and also help their business in the process. While many home computer users may not be quite as familiar with green computing as large firms, this term is starting to become more mainstream all around the world and the requirements for new, better computers to help both the companies and the end users of the equipment, as well as our environment, are becoming more and more urgent. Green computing Learning to make (72) _______ use of computer resources so as to save (71) __________ Main goal energy and protect the environment. To reduce the use of energy and materials that do (73) ______ to the environment, ? ? (74) __________ ? ? ? Present situation ? ? In 1992 the EPT created Energy Star program, (75) _______ energy efficient computing equipment and technologies. Then many computer manufacturers launched sleep mode and many computer users (76) _______ the policy to save energy. In 2006 Energy Star made the computer requirements (77) _______and implemented a ranking system for products. At (78) _______, over 20 states have established a special recycling program for old computers and electronics. Green computing requires the (79) ______ of users, management, and regulatory compliance. Green computing is becoming more mainstream (80) ________. Now, better computers will help both companies and users, and protect
10

the environment.

M: That ’s great! Thanks a lot! See you at 1:30. W: Bye. (Text 8) W: Paul, how long have you been in the music business? M: For about 20 years, I guess. I ’ve never had another job, no, never. I ’ve only been a musician. W: How old were you when you started playing? M: It was when I was just a kid, I taught myself to play. I tried a few instruments … first the drum---that was when I was only 5, in 1981. After that it was the piano, and then later keyboards. W: When did you start playing professionally? M: While I was still at school. I left school at 16. I was playing in a band, working on Saturday evenings in pubs and clubs. When I left school, my only ambition was to be in a pop group. (Text 9) W: Who wrote this? It ’s completely wrong! M: What do you mean? W: Just look at it! The accident wasn ’t on Thursday! It was on Tuesday! The accident happened at lunchtime! Really you should remember the facts. It was a girl, not a boy lying on the road, and she hadn ’t tripped over anything. She had just slipped because the road was wet from the rain. M: OK. Everything about the truck and car is right? W: I don’t believe you. Why do you think there was a truck? M: Well, the article says so. W: Don’t believe everything you read. It was a minibus. And the minibus driver was fine. The person who flew out was a passenger at the front of the minibus. M: So it should be bad ne ws for a passenger on the minibus. And I guess the information

about the car is correct? W: It is, but I think that is personal information and we shouldn ’t print it in the newspaper, so cancel the entire paragraph. M: OK. (Text 10) M: OK, so my friends, they convinced me to go on this hiking trip through the mountains. Eight of us, we were going to go for a week, hiking through the mountains, backpacking, carrying all the equipment on us, so that we could camp out and cook over a fire and everything. We ended up camping out every single night. Two of the nights were really nice because it was clear. The sky was clear so you could see all the stars. It was warm, and it was beautiful. But on the second-to-last night, we had a huge thunderstorm. It scared us to death. You know, we were out there in the middle of nowhere, and we were wet and scared, but it was OK, because the next day it was warm, sunny, and all of our stuff got to dry out, so it worked out OK. We covered about 200 miles in one week. We were really moving.
