She placed a note on the kitchen table, picked up her bags, and then made her way to the bus stop. “Hi, mum,” she said after arriving at her house.“What have you done?” she asked, noticing Carrie's luggage in the hallway. “Oh, mum, I've left him. I couldn't bear any more.” Shocked, her mum didn't know what to say, so she went to make some coffee. Next day, Carrie had a visitor. “Carrie, please don't do this to me. Come back home?” Tom begged. But was she listening? She ignored him and stepped back inside the house. The weeks went by and Tom became very depressed. There seemed little point in carrying on without her. Then one night he got into his car and drove to a nearby seaside town. After abandoning the car, he walked towards a big stone by the sea. Looking over the edge he saw the waves crashing into the bottom of the rock. His body was shaking — then he jumped. Carrie was mad when she found out. She paced up and down smoking a cigarette. Her eyes were full of tears. It wasn't all his fault that he had become so bad tempered. He had been finding it difficult looking for another job. She then threw the cigarette to the ground, wiped away the tears and made her way up the long passage and into a room. “Don't you ever, ever do anything like that again,”she said in a temper to the person in the room. “I won't, ”Tom said, looking up at her from his hospital bed.

Luckily for him, someone had seen him jump and dived in to save him. 61. Why did her Mum go to make some coffee? A. Because she knew her daughter liked coffee very much. B.

B
DMONTREAL (Reuters) – Crossing the US-Canada border(边界)to go to church on a Sunday cost a US citizen $10,000 for breaking Washington’s strict new security(安全)rules. The expensive trip to church was a surprise for Richard Albert, who lives right on the Canadian border. Like the other half-dozen people of Township 15, crossing the border is a daily occurrence for Albert. The nearby Quebec village of St. Pamphile is where they shop, eat and go to church. There are many such situations in these areas along the largely unguarded 5,530-mile border between Canada and the US,which in some cases actually runs down the middle of streets or through buildings. As a result, Albert says he did not expect any problems three weeks ago when he returned home to the US after attending church in Canada as usual. The US customs(海关)station in this area is closed on Sundays, so be just drove around the locked gate, as he had done every weekend since the gate appeared last May, following a tightening of border security. Two days later, Albert was told to go to the customs office, where an officer told him he had been caught on camera crossing the border illegally(非法). Ottawa has given out special passes to some 300 US citizens in that area so they can enter the country when Canadian customs stations are closed, but the US stopped a similar program last May. That forces the people to a 200-mile detour along hilly roads to get home through another border checkpoint. Albert has requested that the customs office change their decisions on the fine, but he has not attended a Sunday church since. “I feel like I’m living in a prison,” he said. 65. We learn from the text that Richard Albert is______. A. a Canadian living in a Quebec village B. an American living in Township 15 C. a Canadian working in a customs station D. an American working in a Canadian church

66. Albert was fined (罚款) because he______. A. failed to obey traffic rules B. worked in St. Pamphile without a pass C. broke the American security rules D. damaged the gate of the customs office 67. The underlined word “detour” in paragraph 5 means ______. A. an indirect way of travelling B. a race across the fields C. a drive through the town D. a journey in the mountain area 68. What would be the best title for the text? A. A Cross-country Trip B. A Special Border Pass C. An Unguarded Border D. An Expensive Church Visit C When someone gives you advice, listen without judgment, try to find value in what you’re hearing, and say “Thank you”. This wise advice is easy to understand yet hard to practice. I’ll give you an example from my life when I totally blew it in terms of practicing what I teach. In my work I travel constantly. I always put off going to the airport until the last second. My wife, Lynda, was sitting next to me in the front seat. I was racing along and not paying much attention. Lynda cried out, “Look out! There is a red light up ahead.” Being a trained behavioral science professional — who teaches others the value of encouraging advice — I naturally screamed at her, “I know there is a red light up ahead! Don’t you think I can see?” When we arrived at the airport, Lynda didn’t speak to me. I wondered why she seemed mad at me. During the flight to New York, I did a cost-benefit analysis. I asked myself, “What was the cost of just listening when Lynda called out the warning? Zero.” I then reasoned, “What was the potential benefit? What could have been saved?” Several potential benefits came to mind, including her life, my life, and the lives of other people. I landed in New York feeling ashamed of myself. I immediately called Lynda and told her my cost-benefit story. I convinced her, “The next time you help me with my driving, I am just going to say, ‘Thank you.’” 2 A few months passed, and I had long forgotten the 0 incident. Again, I was racing off to the airport, when Lynda cried out, “Look out for the red light!” 0 I was embarrassed, and then shouted, “Thank you!” 9 I’m a long way from perfect, but I’m getting better. My 0 suggestion is that you get in the habit of asking the important people in your life how you can do5things better. And be ready for an answer. Some people may tell you things like “Look out for the0red light.” When this happens, remember that there is possibly some potential benefit. Then just say, 7 “Thank you.” 69. What do we know about the author? A. He is expert at behavioral science. B. He is gifted in cost-benefit analysis. C. He seldom takes his wife’s advice. D. He often runs the red traffic light. 70. The underlined part “blew it” in Paragraph 1 probably means “__________”. A. became annoyed with the adviser B. failed to say “Thank you” C. forgot the practical method D. lost personal judgment 71. It can be inferred from the passage that people __________.

A. tend to be defensive when given advice B. intend to follow others’ suggestions C. had better study behavioral science D. should give their opinions patiently 72. The purpose of the passage is to advise people to __________. A. do a cost-benefit analysis in daily life B. learn from the author’s experiences C. treasure others’ suggestions D. discover potential benefits D They’re WILD animals! By Ernst-Ulrich Franzen March 11, 2010 |(3) COMMENTS The story about the woman who lost some fingers while feeding a bear at a zoo in Manitowoc, after she ignored warnings and barriers, reminded me of the story I heard about a couple who put their baby on the back of a wild horse in South Dakota to get a really cute picture. We all do silly things at times — no one is immune(免疫的) — but treating wild animals as lovely pets has to fall into a special category. Teddy bears and Disney movies aren’t actually representative of real bears. Comments (3) View Comments ? Post a Comment 1. TosaLeft - Mar 11, 2010 10:46 AM Don’t you think that maybe, just maybe some wine was involved? 2. tk421 - Mar 11, 2010 11:09 AM It was already agreed that wine was involved. Stories that begin with a drunk person saying “Hey, I got an idea, watch this!” rarely end well. 3. Tristan Kloss - Mar 11, 2010 11:41 AM Wine certainly isn’t involved when people decide to keep “pets” like chimpanzees, baby tigers, etc. Stupidity, definitely. Dogs are pets because of thousands of years of domestication(驯养). Even farm animals, which have been kept by humans for thousands of years as well, aren’t let in the house. So why keep animals that treat human contact with, at best, indifference and, at worst, violence? 73. In Ernst-Ulrich Franzen’s opinion, the woman lost her fingers because ________. A. the zoo keepers didn’t warn her of the danger B. she didn’t know the bear was a wild animal C. she climbed over the barriers and angered the bear D. she was somehow influenced by cartoon characters 74. TosaLeft thinks the wounded woman ________. A. may have been drunk B. may be a little stupid C. was addicted to wine D. fed wine to the bear 75. tk421 means a drunk person ________. A. should be forbidden to enter the zoo B. always gets himself into trouble C. is often fond of making up stories D. usually likes to show himself off 76. What does Tristan Kloss think of people treating wild animals as pets? A. Kind. B. Illegal C. Stupid D. Loving E

Ever since they were first put on the market in the early 1990s, genetically modified (GM,转基 因) foods have been increasingly developed and marketed in many countries in the world, mainly on the basis of their promise to end the worldwide food crisis. But can GM technology solve world hunger problems? Even if it would, is it the best solution? Despite what it promises, GM technology actually has not increased the production potential of any crop. In fact studies show that the most widely grown GM crop, GM soybeans, has suffered reduced productivity. For instance, a report that analysed nearly two decades of research on major GM food crops shows that GM engineering has failed to significantly increase US crop production. Something else, however, has been on the rise. While GM seeds are expensive, GM companies tell farmers that they will make good profits by saving money on pesticides (杀虫剂). On the contrary, US government data show that GM crops in the US have produced an overall increase in pesticide use compared to traditional crops. "The promise was that you could use less chemicals and boost production. But neither is true," said Bill Christison, President of the US National Farm Coalition. At the same time, the authors of the book World Hunger: Twelve Myths argue that there actually is more than enough food in the world and that the hunger crisis is not caused by production, but by problems in food distribution and politics. These indeed deserve our efforts and money. Meanwhile, the rise in food prices results from the increased use of crops for fuel rather than food, according to a 2008 World Bank report. As a matter of fact, scientists see better ways to feed the world. Another World Bank report concluded that GM crops have little to offer to the challenges of worldwide poverty and hunger, because better ways out are available, among which "green" farming is supposed to be the first choice. 77. The author develops the second paragraph mainly ______________. A. by description B. by comparison C. by explanation D. by example 78. What does the underlined word “boost” in the third paragraph probably mean? A. control. B. increase. C. decrease. D. end. 79. GM companies promise farmers that they will benefit from ______________. A. practicing "green" farming B. using more crops for fuel C. fair price of their crops D. use of less chemicals 80. Which of the following best describes the attitude of the author towards GM technology? A. Optimistic. B. Defensive. C. Disfavouring. D. Aggressive.
