Think twice before eating those dropped small pieces of dry food off your computer keyboard----you might as well be eating off the toilet seat, according to a new study on the amount of germs(细菌) on keyboards. A study by British “Which? Computing” asked a microbiologist(微生物学家) to examine for bugs(臭虫) on 33 keyboards in a typical London office, a toilet seat and a toilet door handle. Four keyboards were judged potential health risks and the microbiologist suggested removing one keyboard as it was too dirty----five times dirtier than the cleaned toilet seat. ‘Most people don’t give much thought to the dirt that builds up on their PC, but if you don’t clean your computer, you might as well eat your lunch off the toilet,’ said Sarah Kinder, the consumer magazine editor of “Which? Computing” in a statement. The study found that eating lunch at desks is the main cause of a keyboard covered with bugs. Dropped pieces of dry food encourage the growth of millions of germs. Poor personal hygiene(卫生), such as not washing hands after going to the toilet, may also add to the dirtiness of keyboards. But despite the health risk of a dirty keyboard, a survey of 4,000 people by the magazine found one in 10 people ever cleaned their keyboard while another two in 10 never cleaned their mouse. Almost half----or 46 per cent----cleaned their keyboard less than once a month. To clear out bugs, the magazine recommends users pull out keyboards, turn them upside down and shake them.

The problems started in the 16th century when English ruler tried to conquer Ireland. For hundreds of years, the Irish people fought against the English. Finally, in 1921, the British government was forced to give independence to the south of Ireland, resulting in that today there are two “Irelands”. Northern Ireland, in the north, is part of the United Kingdom. The Republic of Ireland, in the south, is an independent country. In the 1840s, the main crop, potatoes, was affected by disease and about 750,000 people died of hunger. This, and a shortage (短缺) of work, forced many people to leave Ireland and live in the USA, the UK, Australia and Canada. As a result of these problems, the population fell from 8.2 million in 1841 to 6.6 million in 1851. For many years, most of the Irish people earned their living as farmers. Today, many people still work on the land but more and more people are moving to the cities to work in factories and offices. Life in the cities is very different from life in the countryside, where things move at a quieter and slower pace. The Irish are famous for being warm-hearted and friendly. Oscar Wilde, a famous Irish writer, once said that the Irish were “the greatest talkers since the Creeks”. Since independence ,Ireland has revived (复兴) its own culture of music, language, literature and singing. Different areas have different styles of old Irish songs which are sung without instruments. Other kinds of Irish music use many different instruments such as the violin, whistles, etc. 67. What does the author tell us in Paragraph 1? A. How the Irish fought against the English. B. How Ireland gained independence.

Do you know why people living in particular areas usually have a certain color? Biology and history are the two reasons for this. Skin contains something called melanin, which determines a person’s skin color. The more melanin a person has, the darker his or her skin will be. The amount of and the production of melanin are controlled by genetics(遗传学), but can be affected by other things, such as sunlight. If a person lives in a place with strong sunlight, his or her skin will protect itself by producing more melanin, making the skin darker. In a place with less sunlight, a person’s body will produce less melanin, making the skin lighter. Skin color is also affected by another source----vitamin D. Humans all need vitamin D to build bones. People can get it by eating foods such as fish and milk, or from sunlight, which causes vitamin production in the skin. Melanin protects skin by absorbing sunlight, so sunlight absorbed by melanin cannot be used for vitamin D production. Therefore, a dark-skinned person will produce less vitamin D than a light-skinned person when they received the same amount of sunlight. The connection between vitamin D production and skin color is clear when we look at

evolution. The earliest humans lived in Africa, their dark skin covered with hair. When they moved to places that had less sunlight, their bodies produced less vitamin D because of their dark skin. As a result, their skin made less melanin, so they could get enough sunlight to produce vitamin D. Their skin gradually got lighter and they lost hair. Now, people living in areas with strong sunlight like Africa, have darker skin, while people living in other areas have lighter skin. The exception to this is the Inuit, who live in a place with little sunlight, but have dark skin because they eat a lot of fish and have enough vitamin D. Evolution has given us a rainbow of skin colors. Humans have always had melanin to determine our skin color. What has changed through history is the environment where we have lived. This has in turn changed our melanin production, and eventually, skin color.

(Text 9) W: Wake up, Eric! Time to rise and shine. M: Ah… Oh, hi, Jane! I must have fallen asleep while I was reading. W: You and everyone else. It looks more like campground than a library. M: Well, the dorm’s too noisy to study in and I guess this place is very quiet. W: Have you had any luck finding a topic for your paper? M: No. Prof. Grant told us to write anything about life. W: Well, why not write about the ancient civilizations of Mexico? You seem to be interested in that part of the world. M: I am, but there is too much material to cover. I’ll be writing forever, and Grant only wants five to seven pages… W: But you’ve been there and you said it’s a lot of interesting relics. M: Well, that’s not a bad idea. You’re right. I brought many books and things back with me last summer. That would be great resource material.
