For the blanks with a given word, fill in each blank with the proper form of the given word; for the other blanks, use one word that best fits each blank. (A) I have to say that my mom is stricter than most parents, and I?m the kind of kid who has a lot of my own thoughts. I used to think that she?s just a picky person that likes to make things more difficult for me, so we once sat down and talked face to face trying to clarify every misunderstanding we have (25)__________ us. I (26)__________ (convince) and decided to change my attitude towards her. My mom told me that as we grow, she?s also growing, too. Every day, she learns something new about being a mom, and her knowledge of becoming a good mom gradually grows. (27)__________ time passes by, I began to realize that most of her rules, or should I say “point of view”, are really to protect us. We teenagers often think that parents are conservative (保 守 的 ), and they know nothing about us, but honestly, we?re actually still too young (28)__________ (know) what?s really best for us. Parents can be wrong sometimes because nobody?s perfect, and they may be just like my mom who is still on her way to (29)__________ (be) a perfect parent! So, to those who often argue with their parents like me: next time, when you really disagree with (30)__________ your parents say, stop and tell yourself that your parents would never try to do (31)__________ to harm you because they love you before you yell at them. Finally, I really want my mom to know how sorry I am for always yelling at her breaking her heart. I really do want to change because I love her just as much as she loves me. (B) When I was in junior high school, darkness began filling my mind. I don?t know the day or the reason why it began. All I know is that I started feeling hopeless and worthless. I hid in my room, (32)__________ (stare) out of the window, thinking about all my failures. I even questioned (33)__________ being alive was worthwhile. My dark mood wasn?t constant. It would fade at times, but it always returned. It was my parents that helped me identify the shadow (34)__________ hung over my life — depression. Depression is (35)__________ mental illness that drains your energy and prevents you from enjoying life. It can keep you from succeeding at school or work or from connecting with others. At its (36)__________ (bad), depression can even lead to suicide. When your mood is dark, how do you know whether you are depressed or just sad? Think about how long the feelings (37)__________ (last). If they have persisted for weeks or months, get help. No one (38)__________ face depression alone. If you?re depressed, find someone — a friend, parent, teacher or pastor — and tell them your feelings. Consider seeing a doctor or psychologist, if they are getting worse. When I was depressed, I was (39)__________ (embarrass) to tell anyone. I didn?t want to seem weak or needy. But when I told my friends, they supported and encouraged me. In fact, (40)__________ depression affects many people worldwide, treatments are available and can bring hope and joy back into their life.

They hear about the health dangers of chemicals added to __42__ food. They realize they shouldn?t eat too many sweets or fats. Many American consumers read __43__ carefully for nutrition information. That way they can compare products and eat the best foods. Keeping fit — or maybe getting in shape — is often high on the list of New Year?s resolutions for Americans. In the past two decades, fitness has become a fashion. Many Americans have joined health clubs to work out with __44__ equipment. Sports stores sell sports shoes and clothing for every possible exercise __45__. People can even buy weights and equipment and set up their own exercise center at home! Statistics give health experts good reason to be disappointed. Americans exercise less than they used to. The number of people taking part in fitness activities __46__ from 41.7 million in 1991 to only 32 million in 1993. Among high school students, only 37 percent __47__ three times per week. However, 70 percent of teenagers watch at least an hour of TV every day, and 38 percent watch over three hours. As a result, the __48__ American gained eight pounds during the 1980?s. At least one-third of Americans weigh 20 percent more than their ideal weight. Still, by many __49__, Americans enjoy good health. Medical care in the United States, while expensive, is among the best in the world. The U.S. Government __50__ strict food inspections to ensure that food is of the highest quality.

Reading Comprehension Section A Directions: For each blank in the following passage there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context. As anyone who has tried to lose weight knows, realistic goal-setting generally produces the best results. That is partially __51__ it appears people who set realistic goals actually work more efficiently, and make more effort, to achieve those goals. What is far less understood by scientists, __52__, are the potentially harmful effects of goal-setting. Newspapers relay (转发) accounts of goal-setting in industries and businesses up and down both Wall Street and Main Street, yet there has been __53__ little research on how the practice of setting goals may have __54__ to the current economic crisis, and unethical (不道德) behavior in general. “Goals are widely used and promoted as having really beneficial effects. And yet, the same __55__ that can push people to make more effort in a constructive way could also motivate people
to be more likely to __56__ unethical behaviors,” says Maurice Schweitzer, an associate professor at Penn?s Wharton School. “It turns out there?s no economic benefit to just having a goal — you just get a psychological benefit.” Schweitzer says. “But in many cases, goals have economic __57__ that make them more powerful.” A prime example Schweitzer and his colleagues mention is the 2004 __58__ of energy-trading giant Enron, where managers used financial encouragements to motivate salesmen to __59__ specific profit goals. The problem, Schweitzer says, is the actual trades were not __60__. Other studies have shown that __61__ employees with unrealistic goals can force them to lie, cheat or steal. Such was the case in the early 1990s when Sears __62__ a sales quota (配额) on its auto repair staff. It promoted employees to impose for work and to __63__ unnecessary repairs on a companywide basis. Schweitzer admits his research runs counter to (违背) a very large body of literature that __64__ the many benefits of goal-setting.

Walker ordered a combination platter (大浅盘) and egg roll from the Good Friend Chinese and Seafood Restaurant on Dennison Ave. Thursday evening. After paying her $7 bill she went back to her car and discovered a fly inside. “I thought I need to take this back,” she said. The customer went back and asked for a repayment and said the owner Chun Hin Ching, 52, was unhappy with her because she announced her discovery in front of other customers. After an argument he repaid the money and Walker — who is now a former frequent customer of the business — turned and walked to the exit. That?s when Ching drew a handgun and fired a single shot over her head. “He just shot the gun at me and I ran,” she said, adding she could feel the bullet whiz past her head. Birmingham Police Department spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards told the News the owner was charged with attempted murder and was transported to Jefferson County Jail on $100,000 bail (保 释金). Police believe Ching intended to hit Walker with the bullet and missed, Edwards said. The bullet hit the top of the door frame of the take-out business. Ching did not tell police why he fired at Walker, Edwards said. Edwards said he did not recall any previous problems at the business. He said Ching did not say why he had a weapon but added it was not uncommon for stores in that neighborhood. No one was injured from the gunshot, Edwards said.

Volunteers taking part in two experiments where they could benefit by cheating were more likely to do so if the tests took place after midday, researchers found. The findings back up previous studies which have shown that our capacity for self-control declines during the day, due to tiredness and repeatedly making decisions. Psychologists from Harvard University first showed a group of volunteers various patterns of dots on a computer screen, asking them to decide whether there were more dots on the left or the right hand side. Instead of being rewarded for getting the answer right, the participants were paid based on which side they chose, earning ten times as much for choosing the right hand side as the left. People who were tested after midday were significantly more likely to select the right hand side, even if there were clearly more dots on the left, than those who took part during the morning. In a second test, participants were shown a series of word fragments, such as “—ral” and “e—c—” and asked which words they associated with them. In morning experiments, participants were more likely to form the words “moral” and “ethical” while during the afternoon the words “coral” and “effects” were most common. Further tests conducted online showed that people were more likely to send dishonest messages or claim to have solved an unsolvable problem in the afternoon than in the morning. Writing the Psychological Science journal, the researchers said the difference was particularly pronounced in people with higher ethical standards, who always behaved morally during the morning but slipped during the afternoon. In contrast, those who were able to “morally disengage”, or behave unethically without feeling guilty, tended to cheat whatever the time of day.
D. Local food.
Dr. Maryam Kouchaki, one of the lead authors, said: “Unfortunately, the most honest people, such as those less likely to morally disengage, may be the most susceptible (易受影响的) to the negative consequences associated with the morning morality effect.” The findings could be relevant to organizations that should be more alert about the behavior of customers and employees during the afternoon, she added. “Our findings suggest that mere time of day can lead to a systematic failure of good people to act morally.” 74. Volunteers can get more money when they ______. A. gave the correct answer C. chose the left hand side B. chose the right hand side D. remembered the patterns of dots
75. Why are participants less likely to form words like “ethical”, “moral” in the afternoon? A. Because their vocabulary becomes smaller. B. Because they are unwilling to tell the truth. C. Because the words are the voice of their heart. D. Because self control declines after midday. 76. The underlined word “pronounced” ( in paragraph 10 ) is closest in meaning to ______. A. dominated B. announced C. marked D. exposed 77. Which of the following statements is TRUE? A. The finding especially applies to those who behave ethically. B. Mere time of day can lead to systematic failure of organizations. C. The finding doesn?t agree with that of previous studies. D. People who act morally feel guilty after telling a lie. Section C Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. Not for the first time, Paul Mathis wants us to change. But this time he isn?t trying to get us to go vegetarian, or dine only on locally grown ingredients. This time he?s trying to get us to type differently. Paul Mathis, a restaurateur from Melbourne who owns a string of dining establishments, has designed the letter “?” — representing the word “the”. Now he is pushing Apple to allow him to promote his app, which features the new character, in its iTunes store. In a move to branch out of the food business, Paul has invested AUS $38,000 (? 23,500) in the new app, but has so far been rejected by Apple. He is hoping he can change their mind, pointing out that reducing the word “the” — the most used word in the English language — to one character would be helpful for Twitter and swift typing. “Is this important?” he said, in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald. “No. Is this going to change the world? Not really. But is it something that might be useful for people? I think so, because it can save people lots of time on keyboard.” “The word ?and? is only the fifth-most used word in English and it has its own symbol — the ampersand ?&?,” said Mr. Mathis. “Isn?t it time we gave the same respect to ?the??” The top five most commonly used words in the English language are said to be: the, be, to, of, and “and”. The ampersand “&” has at times been used as the 27th letter of the English alphabet.
Paul has developed the typography — effectively an upper-case “T” and a lower-case “h” bunched together so they share the upright stem — and an app that puts it in everyone?s hand by allowing users to download an entirely new electronic keyboard complete not just with his symbol but also a row of keys of 15 most frequently typed words. So far, though, the take-up has been minimal. But that might change if he can get his innovation into Apple?s app store. The problem is, the Californian tech giant has so far resisted his advances. But who knows — maybe in 500 years? time people will be amazed that there was a time when we didn?t use ???. (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN TWELVE WORDS) 78. What is Paul Mathis? __________________________________________________________________________ 79.

Hopefully you will enjoy this as much as I enjoyed writing these posts. Deep Springs is a college located on a farm in California?s High Desert. L.L. Nunn founded the school in 1917 in order to help young men prepare themselves for lives of service to humanity. The school has 26 students, along with its staff, form a close community engaged in this intense project. Each student attends for two years and receives a full scholarship valued at over $50,000 per year. Afterwards, most students complete their degrees at the world?s most famous four-year universities. Things are pretty sweet here. For me, at least. I?m taking three courses this semester: politics, a musical theory and composition course with the wonderful Dick Dawson, who visits each Thursday.

W: Well, some money of course, a visa, my identity card and some photos. M: Well. If I were you, I would make a phone call to the police straight away. W: Yes, I have already done that and they already looked for it. I?ll leave soon and I need my visa and identity card badly. M: Oh dear. What a pity. Then where did you lose your wallet? W: I last saw my wallet when I left the theatre last night. M: I think you should put out a public notice in the local newspaper. Tell people the things and where you lost them. W: But that takes too long. And Star Theater is not popular in the neighbourhood. A: Wait a minute. Such a coincidence! My uncle lives very close to the theatre. I could ask him to go to theatre to require it. （Now listen again）
