Although he dropped out after only one semester, he continued taking classes at Reed, sleeping on the floor in friend’ rooms, returning Coke bottles for food money, and getting weekly free meals at the local temple.

For so many times. it's occurred to me that I've found a strange way of easing into retirement —wheeling a school bus around the streets of Minnetonka, shepherding elementary and middle-school kids to and from school. Having spent the past 10 years before retirement as a family counselor, I figured that driving a school bus would give me a chance to reconnect with young people, and get me out of the house more often. Anyway, I’m learning a lot driving a school bus and I’ve learned a lot form my fellow drivers. If the kids are paying attention, they can learn it, too. The course is Life 101. The title is Self-Awareness and Self-Management. And the school bus drivers are, for a few minutes each morning and evening, teachers. These drivers are in fact people from different backgrounds, including retired folks-like a onetime corporate CEO, a onetime lawyer, a former teacher, a former investment banker. Some are younger stay-at-home moms, displaced managers, and people throwing their shoulders into a challenging economy. If the kids are paying attention, they may learn important things form these drivers, like discipline, kindness, and courage. How can kids know the discipline that it takes to rise every morning before sunrise, to travel to a
cold garage and enter a large box of iron--checking it out from beginning to end——ensuring that it allows all the kids a safe ride? Do they recognize the challenge of being kind and respectful when one’s financial house of cards may be coming down? Do children really understand the courage it takes to get up when snow is piling high and drive a school bus, facing all ultimate fear——an injured child? While academics are vital, self—awareness, self—management and personal responsibility are life—changing. 61. The author decided to become a school bus driver to A. get connected with the young kids and stay active B. provide counseling service for the school kids C. avoid getting into financial trouble after retirement D. guarantee that he has well—paid stable job 62. The underline word “shepherding” in the second paragraph means“ A. sending off B. picking up C. getting on D. bringing up ”. .
63. What does the author really want to express in Paragraph 3 ? A. Class courses have been extended to the school bus.
B. Learning from school bus drivers is a course on life C. School bus drivers should have common sense with driving. D. They are required to take self—awareness curriculum. 64. The underlined phrase “house of cards” in Paragraph 6 is often used to describe A. an interesting building C. an impossible mission B. an unpractical idea D. an unstable structure .
65. What’s the best title of the passage? A. A School Bus Driver in the Gentle Mist B. A School Bus Driver’s Training Manual C. A School Bus Driver’s Lesson on Life D. A School Bus Driver And His Story C There is a forgotten player in the global efforts to limit C02 emissions：the consumer. Households consume one—third of the final energy used in the European Union and produce around two—thirds of city waste. Moreover, food, housing, and private transport account for almost 80％ of environmental pressures. So consumers can make a real difference when it comes to fighting climate change. Several factors can direct consumers towards more environmentally—friendly behavior. To achieve this, we need clear and simple information to guide consumption decisions. Indeed. Two thirds of consumers find it difficult to understand which products are better for the environment when shopping. With 58％ of Europeans believing that many companies pretend to be green in order to charge higher prices, industry has a long way to go in helping consumers feet confident when making green choices. They should give consumers more information about the carbon footprint of their products, promote more sustainable behavior among their customers. To be sure, companies are increasingly creating product labels that help consumers make responsible choices--for instance, reminding users of products made from materials that are recycled, renewable, and／ or less carbon—intensive. Even so, only 20% of Europeans believe that companies are doing enough to promote environmentally friendly options. In times of crisis, consumers prefer high-quality products that will last long and won’t go out of style. Durable products might sometimes cost more, but they don’t need to be replaced as frequently. In this way, companies that create durable or recyclable products enable consumers to think differently about their
purchases, which can help users behave more responsibly, and thus may help end our “throw-way” culture. However, it is not enough to inform consumers of the environmental features of products. We also need to provide consumers with guidance to establish a practical lifestyle model to follow. This cannot be brought about by regulations alone, but by good business communities that would create a loyal group of “sustainable consumers”. 66. According to the passage, the key to going greener globally is A. to get the government involved in protecting the environment B. to require the companies produce environmentally-friendly products C. to encourage consumers to make their efforts to live a green way D. to provide enough information about sustainable products 67. The author is trying to inform the readers in the third passage that . .
A. most European consumers lack confidence in making responsible choices B. companies can make a higher profit by making less carbon-intensive products C. people are buying sustainable products to have a lighter carbon footprint D. companies have done enough to allow consumers to make greener choices 68. Which of the fact is TRUE according to the passage? A. Households produce more than one—third of city waste. B. Green life style can reduce about 80％ of environmental pressures. C. 2／3 0f consumers know little about which products are greener. D. only 20％of companies are helping consumers behave responsibly. 69. The author advises companies to A. reduce the cost of production in the time of crisis. B. throw away old models
C. replace their products frequently D. make more durable products 70. What does the author put emphasis on in the last paragraph? A. The quality of products. B. The honesty of companies.
C. The government regulations. D. The importance of lifestyle. D Nicaragua’s Cerro Negro Volcano has erupted 23 times in the past 100 years, burying homes, crops and people in lava and ashes. But recently the black mountain has become a tourist draw, thanks to a newly invented extreme sport: volcano boarding.
Thousands of thrill-seekers have climbed to the top of Cerro Negro, peered into its mouth, then zipped down its rough-and—rocky 41—degree slope on special boards. The volcano-boarding speed, set by an Israeli woman, is 54 mph. “Rushing down an active volcano is something that people expect.” Said Anthony Alcalde, an expert volcano boarder. The sport was developed in the mid-2000s by Darryn Webb, an Australian who had climbed the nearby Cerro Negro but was looking for a faster way to get to the bottom. He tried sliding down on surfboards, snowboards, and even a refrigerator door before inventing a sit-down board made of plywood. “At first, Darryn planned to use a snowboard,” said Gemma Cope, a British woman who now runs Big Foot, which offers volcano boarding tours. “But he realized he couldn’t cut an edge for there were little rocks everywhere. So he came up with the sitting-down option and realized he can go pretty fast. ” Tourists, who are nearly all foreigners, pay $28 for the experience, which begins with a truck ride
on dirt roads to Cerro Negr0. a 2, 400-foot—high volcano that last erupted in l999. Visitors must carry their boards during the half-hour climb to the top. There, they go straight down the slope and sometimes
they have to use their feet for brakes. Along the way. The board fills with rocks and dust, making boarders almost blind. Crashes are common. “l wiped out twice and ripped my pants. ”said Melinda Vorisek, a tourist from Miami. “But I’d do it again.” Another tourist added：“It was sheer terror. I was eating dirt. But how many people can say they’ve bombed down a volcano?” 71. Who is the key person to develop the sport of volcano boarding? A. Anthony Alcalde. C. Cerro Negro. B. Darryn Webb. D. Melinda Vorisek.
72. What is Gemma Cope according to the passage? A. A lifeguard on Cerro Negro. B. The inventor of the special board. C. A Judge of the volcano boarding sport. D. The manager of an tourist company. 73. What can we infer about this new extreme sport? A. People can stand on the board while playing. B. All kinds of boards are suitable for the volcano. C. Players must install good brakes on the boards.
D. Special clothes and equipment are needed. 74. What adds to the danger of volcano boarding according to the passage? A. The rocks and dust raised by boards. B. The sudden eruption of the volcano. C. The lack of professional equipment. D. The rough and steep slope of the hill. 75. From what some tourists said, we can lean that they love volcano boarding because A. it is easier to get to the top of the mountain B. it is a good chance to see the mouth of the volcano C. it is really a challenge to overcome a volcano D. it is frightening to drop from the hill like a bomb ______.

A new research found that inner—city kids living in neighborhoods with more green spare gained about l3％ less weight over a two—year period than kids living in more concrete and fewer trees. Such findings tell a powerful story. The obesity(肥胖)problem began in the l980s, and many people attribute it to unbalanced diet and inactivity, but that can’t be everything. “Most experts agree that the changes are related to something in the environment,” says Thomas Glass of The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. That something could be a decrease of the green.
The new research isn't the first to associate greenery with better health, but it does get us closer to identifying what works and why. A green neighborhood simply means more places for kids to play, which is vital since spent outdoors is closely related to children’s activity levels. But green space is good for the mind too: some researches have shown that it has great benefits for children with attention-deficit disorder.  G1ass warns that most studies don't necessarily prove a link between greenness and health. but they're nonetheless helping encourage action. In September the U. S. House of Representatives approved the delightfully named No Child Left inside Act to encourage all activities aimed at .
 Finding green space is not always easy, and you may have to work a bit to get your family a little grass and trees. If you live in a suburb or a city with good parks, take advantage of what’s there. Your
children in a particular will love it and their bodies and minds will be grateful to you. 76. What are the three factors causing obesity according to Paragraph 1?(no more than l0 words)
77. Why does the author use the example of children in Paragraph 2?(no more than l5 words)
78. Fill in the blank in Paragraph 3 with proper words. (no more than 8 words)
79. What does Glass expect according to paragraph 3 ?(no mere than l5worcls)
80. Translate the underlined sentence in the last paragraph into Chinese.
