When the terrorist attack on September 11th caused people to flee the building, Avremel Zelmanowitz risked his own chance of escape by staying behind with his friend and colleague, Ed Beyea, who was Confined to a wheelchair due to a par'alysis (瘫痪). Both men lost their lives, but the stray of Avremel's love and devotion to his friend conveys a life-giving message to all. Avremel never married, and he shared a house with his brother and his family. He was a loving uncle to his brother's children; and he was devoted to caring for his aging parents.

When the tragedy occurred, Avremel was age 55, and his friend, Ed Beyea, was age 42.

Ed became disabled after a diving accident at age 22, but he managed to work 14 years at Blue Cross since his injury Both he and Avremel were program analysts who worked on the 27th floor of World Trade Center.

Like Avremel, Ed had no children of his own, but he was a father figure to his two nephews after their father died. On the morning of September 11, Ed wanted to wait until he could be securely carried down by several rescue workers, as it was dangerous for someone with his disability to be moved.

In the days that followed, the media learned about Aw'emel's selfless act, and the story began to spread.

Passage Two
What you've always heard? We're eating way too much salt. The average American gets about 3.4 grams of sodium every day, far more than the upper limit of 2. 3 grams recommended by the USDA. The Institute of Medicine estimates that reducing sodium intake ( 摄取量 ) nationwide could prevent 100,000 deaths every year. The headlines now? It's time to get tough. The New York City health department recently kicked off a national effort to cut the amount of salt in packaged and restaurant food by 25% over five years. 80% of the salt in the average person's diet comes from those sources, not from the sahshaker (盐瓶). But wait! The benefits of salt reduction are surprisingly mruky. At least 13 studies have tried to find out what happens to people who choose to eat salty or not-so-salty food--and the results have pointed in eve~3~ direction. Sonre studies suggest that cutting salt protects the heart; others suggest that intense salt reduction can actually increase heart problems. What's needed,Dr. Michael Alderman says, is a randomized (随机的) , controlled trial, in which people are put on different diets and followed for years. It's the only way to get a reliable answer, but it's never been done. So what should you do? Go easy on processed foods and eat more produce. Those changes will improve your diet in a variety of ways and cut the amount of sodium you consume. If your blood pressure is high, work with your doctor to control it with drugs and lifestyle changes. If your blood pressure is healthy? At this point, there's no convincing reason for you to count every grain. 21、It is stated in Paragraph 1 that our sodium intake [A] is within the healthy range [B] is a bit over the upper limit [C] is far beyond what is necessary [D] is well below the lower limit 22、The main sources of salt in our diet are [A] home-made food and packaged food [B] restaurant food and saltshakers [C] home-made food and saltshakers [D] restaurant food and packaged food 23、What does the word "murky' (Para. 3) probably mean? [A] Unclear [B] Significant

2012 年广东省成人高等教育学士学位英语统考真题及答案

[C] Obvious

[D] Exaggerated

24、What does Dr. Michael Alderman say about a randonfized, controlled trial? [A] It has been successfully conducted [B] It should be carded out. [C] It is already under way. [D] It is too late to try it. 25、As stated in the last paragraph, people with normal blood pressure [A] should consider a change of their lifestyle [B] have every reason to be careful about sodium [C] will not be affected by the amount of sodium taken [D] do not have to take sodium too seriously

Passage Three
There is a tale that straw is the worst material from which to build a house, particularly if you are a pig with a hungry wolf around. So the cards were stacked against Warren Brush when local officials learned that he had several buildings made of straw bales ( 大捆 ) on his land. They have tried to fine him a lot. But the case is still unresolved. The problem is that California's building codes make no provision for the use of straw. And Mr Brush has many defenders--among them several university scientists and David Eisenberg, the chairman of the United States Green Building Council's code connnittee. They would like to see the prejudice against straw houses eliminated, for straw is, in many ways, an ideal building material. It is, for one thing, a great insulator (绝缘体). That keeps down the heating bills in houses made from it. It is also a waste product that would otherwise be burned, and is therefore cheap, and very much to the point in a place like California, it is earthquake-resistant. Last year a test conducted at the University of Nevada showed that straw-bale constructions could' withstand twice the amount of ground motion recorded in the Northridge earthquake that hit LosAngeles in 1994. There are other straws in the wind: a post office in suburban Albuquerque, a school in Maryland, and an office complex in suburban Los Angeles have all been built from straw. Even California is having a rethink, and may change its rules to adapt to straw-bale construction. As Mr Eisenberg observes, "the lesson of the Three Little Pigs isn't to avoid straw. It's that you don't let a pig build your house." 26、By "the cards were stacked against Warren Brush, the author means that Brash [A] received punishment [c] would be in trouble [B] made a breakthrough [D] might win a prize

2012 年广东省成人高等教育学士学位英语统考真题及答案

27、David Eisenberg is mentioned [A] as a representative of official opinions [B] for the purpose of supporting Warren Brush [C] to provide evidence against straw houses [D] to show the importance of the building codes 28、What is Paragraph 3 mainly about? [A] The structure of straw houses. [B] The possibility of building straw houses. [C] The suggestions for building straw houses. [D] The advantages of straw houses. 29、It can be learned from the last paragraph that California [Al will fine Warren Brush as planned [B] will reduce the fine on Warren Brush [C] may consider a heavier fine on Warren Brush [D] may not fine Warren Brash 30、The author's purpose in writing the passage is to [A] show that straw can be used to build houses [B] highlight the prejudice against straw houses [C] explain how to build a house with straw [D] introduce a new building material

Passage Four
I was talking with a senior Public Relations manager the other day about "The Game Trainers" and he expressed much doubt about both the possibility and value of getting senior professionals to play games. These are serious people with serious jobs, and they are not going to waste time running around like school children,' he told me. This statement highlighted many of his assumptions. He also provided me with a golden opportunity to talk about how these "serious people with serious jobs" could actually learn something about themselves, their staff, their company, and their business opportunities by allowing creativity to flow more freely through "games". His position is not uncommon and it comes from a deep seated misunderstanding of what a "game" is and what it is for, as well as a set notion of what "work" nmst look like for it to be

2012 年广东省成人高等教育学士学位英语统考真题及答案

considered of value. It's not a coincidence (巧合) that the most successful companies of the last decade, including Apple and Google, were all started by college students, and perhaps as a consequence have at their core a spirit of fun, creativity and innovation. Their success has not been achieved through a strict work environment, dull meetings and a 9 to 5 work time. Instead they have flowing and flexible work spaces, a culture of cooperation, opportunities for creativity and relaxed work structures. The Game Trainers support this innovative and highly productive approach to work by developing games to integrate into the working environment, And so, I said to the PR man, it's a good thing that they are "serious people with serious jobs", because we also are extremely serious about play, and in today's environment they simply cannot afford not to play games. 31、What does the PR manager think of the author’s proposal of playing games? [Al It is against the rule. [C] It is worth a try. [B] It makes no sense. [D] It would be beneficial.

32、The author suggests that the PR manager’s position on games [A] represents a common misunderstanding [B] allows for greater work efficiency [C] is based on scientifically proven concepts [D] is hard to understand in today's world? 33、The examples of Apple and Google show that [A] it helps to combine work with games [B] games should be separated from work [C] work and games can be clearly defined [D] no work can be done well without games 34、"The Game Trainers" is probably a [A] computer game [C] game developer 35、In the passage the author [A] encourages people to work more creatively [B] describes how to balance work with life [C] analyzes why it is important to enjoy work [D] promotes an innovative approach to work [B] search engine [D] research system
