Get a Better Night’s Sleep

You’re trying to get a good night’s sleep, but why do you still find yourself staring at the ceiling? It’s time to listen to what some unexpected experts have to say.

Get the Basic Equipment Right.

There’s really good study on the basic equipment for sleep. 1.  Firstly, most people prefer a mattress (床垫)that is not too hard and not too soft. Secondly, if your mattress is eight to ten years old, you should get a new one. Seventy-two percent of people said they slept better on their new mattress than they did on their old one.


Watching TV at night may seem relaxing. However, it beams light into your eyes, which is a “warning” signal for the brain.   3.   Besides, the cooler white and blue light from a computer screen encourages brain activity and makes your brain difficult to calm down. Download the software at stereopsis.com /flux. It gradually makes your screen less bright at sunset, turning its colors a warmer red one.

Keep you Cool.

One of the best signals from the body to go to sleep is a decrease in body temperature. I suggest sleeping in a very cool environment, about 19℃. A hot bath will increase your skin temperature, which finally decreases your main body temperature.  4. 

Make Sleeping Pets Lie.

Sometimes your dogs might need the noise of machines. Many dogs are sensitive to noises outside, like other dogs barking or neighbors coming home late. A noisy machine will drown out the noises that are keeping your pet up, which keep your pet from waking you.  5.   . If you keep them awake during the day, they’re more likely to sleep at night.

A. Read a book before bed instead.

B. Take a bath a half-hour or so before bedtime.

C. You also learn dogs sleep when they’re bored.

D. The dog is very loyal to his master.

E. It proved two theories.

F. You don’t need a really beautiful mattress.

G. Switch off the Box.


Japan’s youth are losing interest in science and as a result, threatening the nation’s industrial progress. According to Japan Science and Technology Agency, young Japanese are surrounded by high-tech devices(设备), but are not interested in how they work.

Japanese businesses have succeeded partly because they’ve a great many engineers. A drop in interest could lead to a decline(减少) in their numbers and quality. "In the past, the young had a big interest in science and technology," said Hirano, director of the agency’s policy department.

There are two main reasons for the problem. The first is known as "black box syndrome" of modern technology.

Electronic devices depend on tiny silicon chips(芯片), which can only be made in big factories, whose workings can’t be seen by the eyes. The devices, unlike machines of the past driven by gears and wheels, are simply boxes.

Young Japanese, brought up on video games and at home with computers, enjoy using modern technology, but this is a passive interest and different from the interest in how things work. "You need an active interest to get interested in science. This is declining in the young," said Hirano.

About two-thirds of Japanese in their 20s use PCs, twice the number of those in their 50s. But only 40% of those in their 20s say they are interested in news about science and technology, compared to 60% of the 50 to 60 year olds.

"Another reason for it is that life in modern Japan is too comfortable," he said. "A wealthy society reduces people’s desire to modernize and develop their country. To a degree, you can’t avoid this when the fruits of science and technology are fully developed." Similarly, science in Europe and the US has also suffered a lack of interest.

1.Japanese youth’s interest in science is dropping probably because ________.

A. scientists don’t make much money in Japan

B. there are too many scientists in Japan already

C. they’re not interested in how high-tech devices work

D. science is more difficult for young people to learn

2.The underlined word "their" (in Para. 2) refers to ________.

A. Japanese engineers’

B. Japanese businesses’

C. Japan’s young people’s

D. high-tech devices’

3.Why does science meet the same problem in Japan, the US and Europe?

A. People believe they don’t need to develop their science any more.

B. People are satisfied with the comfortable life high-tech devices bring to them.

C. People think high-tech devices destroy the environment.

D. People don’t want to live the modernized life.

4.Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?

A. Older people are probably more interested in science in Japan.

B. About one-third of Japanese people in their 50s use computers.

C. Japan’s youth live too comfortably to take interest in science.

D. Electronic devices are made of parts that can not be seen at all.


If you want to live longer and lower the risk of heart disease, a move to the mountains may help. Research by scientists in Greece shows that living in the mountains is good for the heart and longevity(长寿). People living at higher altitude(海拔) have lower possibility of dying from heart disease than those closer to sea level, even if they have factors that could increase their risk. "Residence in mountainous areas seems to have a protective effect’ from heart disease," said Dr Nikos Baibas of the University of Athens. He and his colleagues suspect that the increased exercise from walking up mountainous area gives the heart a good workout and enables it to cope with lower levels of oxygen.

Researchers studied the health records and death rates of 1,150 Greeks who lived in three villages near Athens over 15 years. One village was 1,000 meters above sea level and the other two were in low-lying areas. Although men and women living in the mountainous village had higher blood pressure rates and other risk factors than people in the other villages, they had a lower rate of death from heart disease and other causes after a fifteen year follow-up." The contrast was more evident among men than among women," Baibas added in a report in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health. Heart disease is one of the world's top killers. Smoking, high blood pressure, raised cholesterol levels, being overweight and a family history of the illness increase the possibility of developing the disease.

1.The first sentence in the passage is used to ________.

A. give a very good guessing

B. tell readers what the passage focuses on

C. warn people of the risk of heart disease

D. name a new unknown illness

2.According to the passage, a person ________ may have less possibility of having heart attack.

A. from higher altitude

B. with a better living habit

C. with more money

D. in a happier mood

3.How long does the research of the Greeks last?

A. At most 10 years.B. Not mentioned.

C. More than 20 years.D. About 15 years.

4.Apart from altitude, how many factors raise the chance of developing heart disease?

A. threeB. fourC. fiveD. six

When I was a baby, I entertained you and made you laugh. Whenever I was “bad”, you'd shake your finger at me and ask, “How could you?”--but then you'd give up, and roll me over for a belly scratch and I believed that life could not be any more perfect.

My housetraining was a long process, because you were terribly busy, but we worked on that together. We went for long walks, runs in the park and car rides. We stopped for ice cream. I took long naps in the sun waiting for you to come home at the end of the day.

Gradually, you began spending more time at work and on your career, and more time searching for a human mate. Eventually, you fell in love. She, now your wife, is not a dog person, but I still welcomed her into our home. I was happy because you were happy. Then the human babies came along and I shared your excitement, I was fascinated by their pinkness, how they smelled, and I wanted to mother them too. Your wife was afraid I would bite them. But nevertheless, as they began to grow, I became their friend.

Now, you have a new job in another city and you and they will be moving to an apartment that does not allow pets. You've made the right decision for your “family”, but there was a time when I was your only family.

I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the dog pound. It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear, of hopelessness. You filled out the paperwork and said, “I know you will find a good home for her.” They shrugged and gave you a pained look. The children were in tears as they waved me goodbye. And “How could you?” were the only three words that swept over my mind.

Is it better to live with hope or without hope? At first, whenever anyone passed my pen (围栏), I rushed to the front, hoping it was you, that you had changed your mind and that this was all a bad dream.

My beloved master, I will think of you and wait for you forever. I hope you receive more faithfulness from your family than you showed to me.

During last summer holiday, I found part-time job, worked in a toothbrush factory at night. Not until I experienced it did I realized that it was no easy job. I went to work when my parents were going to bed. On the morning, when my parents were going to work, I came to home to sleep.

This backward schedule was very tough for me that I often felt tiring. But I am glad that I had this forgettable experience. Not only is it kind of fun to “rise and shine” along with the moon or stars, but also I learn to appreciate the hard work of those which are working while the rest of us are sleeping.

One fine afternoon I was walking along Fifth Avenue when I remembered that it was necessary to buy a pair of socks. I turned into the first sock shop that caught my eye, and a boy clerk who could not have been more than 17 years old came forward.

“What can I do for you, sir?”

“I wish to buy a pair of socks.”

His eyes glowed. “Did you know that you had come into the best place in the world to buy socks?” I had not been aware of that.

“Come with me,” said the boy happily. He began to haul (用力拖) down from the shelves box after box.

“Hold on, boy, I am going to buy only one pair!”

“I know that,” said he, “but I want you to see how beautiful these are. Aren’t they wonderful?” There was on his face an expression of joy, as if he were showing to me the mysteries of his religion.

“My friend,” said I, “if this is not just the enthusiasm (热情) that comes from novelty (新鲜), if you can keep up this day after day, in ten years you will own every sock in the United States.”

In many shops the customer has to wait for someone to serve him. And when finally some clerk does notice you, you are made to feel as if you were disturbing him. He displays no interest either in you or in the goods he is paid to sell.

Yet possibly that very clerk who is now so cold began his career with enthusiasm. As time goes by, the enthusiasm is gradually gone; his only pleasures were found outside of working hours. He became a mechanical (机械的), not inspired, salesman.

I have observed such change in the lives of so many people in so many occupations that I have come to the conclusion that the fastest road to failure is to do things mechanically.

Ahead of so-called Singles’ Day on the 11th of this month,2013, online sales have already begun peaking.

The leading e-business platform, tmall.com, has promoted(促销) its fifty-percent-off discount(折扣) to attract consumers. They are also trying to attract buyers through social media. Vice President of tmall.com Wang Yulei says more than 20 thousand online stores have joined the Double 11 Day sales. But this number has doubled. The final number of how many products going to be on sale has not been known yet. But so far, many more products planned to be put on shelves with discounts.

During last year's Singles’ Day, tmall.com, together with taobao.com, reached a record of 19.1 billion yuan in sales, which considered a milestone in the e-business history of China.

Singles’ Day was first started by Chinese college students in the 1990s as the opposite of Valentine’s Day, a celebration for people without romantic partners. The timing was based on the date: Nov. 11—or double 11—for singles. Single young people would treat each other to dinner or give gifts to show love to someone and end their single status.

But now, the Singles’ Day has been promoted as a kind of grand craze just for the shopping season, thanks to thousands of discounted products being promoted online.

Taobao.com was the first big e-retail platform which used the double 11 idea to promote sales. Taobao.com reached one million yuan worth of sales on that day in 2009, when they first promoted the Singles’ Day idea. In 2010, the sales increased to 936 million yuan. The figure climbed up to 5.3 billion yuan in 2011, putting huge demand on shipping services. The figure doubled in 2012.

E-commerce is considered to be replacing the traditional retailing industry, but the reality is that both sides are learning from each other.

A. 500.B. 125.C. 100.D. 200.

With the development of the Internet, more and more children are addicted to play online games day and night. It does harm not only to their health, especial their eyes, but also to their studies.

   Comparing with online games, many traditional games benefits kids mentally and physically. They were very popular to several generations, for they learned something valuable and had a fun playing the games. Therefore, the games are losing our appeal now,  and some children even havent heard of them.

    Personally, I think teachers and parents should take measure to limit their children's Internet time. Let children know harm of online games and the benefits of traditional games. What's more, we should often organize traditional activities for children.
