It is not cool to follow the fashion trends wear the latest clothes. Your style—the way you dress up, the way you carry yourself, the trends you follow—plays a key role in helping you stand out in a crowd of faces. 1.

Just be original. Everyone has their own way or thinking and experiences that shape their style. You can stand out of the crowd and be not copied. However, self-doubt can drive many to abandon their ways and follow others. 2.

To be bold. Let’s face it; you can’t please everyone. 3.In fact, explore and experiment with different styles that may be completely non-conventional(非常规的) to find something that you prefer.

Keep track of recent trends. 4.Similarly, your sense of fashion changes as you gain more experience in life. Keeping up with the latest trends will help you reshape your style.

5.You can wear a dress exactly how you want it, however, your attitude can make a significant difference on how you look. You can wear a very beautiful dress, but if you can’t carry it with confidence, it will not look good on you. So trust yourself and wear it confidently.

A. Wear your confidence.

B. You should discover your true feeling.

C. You can and should have your own style.

D. So let your style reflect your individuality.

E. Also, it tells a lot of things about your personality.

F. Changing trends reflects the changes in people’s taste.

G. You have to face people who do not approve of your fashion sense.

 

Curiosity is the engine of intellectual achievement—it’s what drives us to keep learning, keep trying and keep pushing forward. But how does one stimulate(激发) curiosity in oneself or others?

"Curiosity arises," Loewenstein, a professor of psychology, wrote, "when attention becomes focused on a gap(缺口) in one’s knowledge. Such information gaps produce the feeling of deprivation(剥夺) labeled curiosity. The curious individual is motivated to obtain the missing information to reduce the feeling of deprivation." Loewenstein’s theory helps explain why curiosity is such a great motivator: it’s not only a mental state but also an emotion, a powerful feeling that drives us forward.

A scientist called Daniel Willingham notes that teachers are often so eager to get to the answer that they do not devote enough tune to developing the question. Being told an answer stops curiosity before it can even get going. Instead of starting with the answer, begin by asking the students a question that interests them—one that opens an information gap.

George Loewenstein noted that curiosity requires some basic knowledge. We’re not curious about something we know absolutely nothing about. But as soon as we know even a little bit, our curiosity is excited and we want to learn more. In fact, research shows that curiosity increases with knowledge: the more we know, the more we want to know.

Language teachers usually use a similar idea in exercises that open an information gap and then require learners to communicate with each other in order to fill it. For example, one student might be given some pictures showing the beginning of the story, while the student’s partner is given some pictures showing how that same story ends. Only by speaking with each other can the students fill in each other’s information gaps.

1.When one notices a gap in his or her knowledge, the curious person_______.

A. desires to fill it

B. tends to give it up

C. may be unwilling to admit it

D. will ignore it and move forward

2.Which of the following is Daniel Willingham’s opinion?

A. Answers are more important than questions.

B. Teachers know how to stimulate students’ curiosity.

C. Interesting questions can help stimulate students’ curiosity.

D. Teachers should allow students to ask more questions in class.

3.What do we know about curiosity in Paragraph 4?

A. It is of importance.

B. It needs more knowledge.

C. It is excited when we learn more.

D. It increases with growing knowledge.

4.What may be the best title for the text?

A. The Importance of Curiosity

B. How to Stimulate Curiosity

C. Curiosity and Language Learning

D. How to Teach Foreign Languages

 

Super Bowl Weekend has just ended, and I was very excited for the big game. But I’m not just a fan of the game: I’m a 13-year-old and offensive guard. I just finished playing my eighth and final season.

During the last two years, they’ve created Title IX regulations that forbid girls from playing contact sports due to safely and “touching” concerns. They claim to be acting in the best interests of young people.

During the 2015 season, the Archdiocese(大主教辖区) announced that it would be my last season because of a rule that girls were not permitted to play football in the league. Right away, I knew I needed to change this rule for not just myself, but for all girls.

So I started a change.org petition(请愿书) that received more than 108,000 signatures!I told my story on national news networks and shows. And in March 2016, the Archbishop changed the rule to make CYO football coed(男女混合的) in Philadelphia.

But in July 2016, the bishops(主教) changed their decision and made football once again for boys only. They let me in for my eighth-grade season, but shut down the opportunity of any other girl to play. I could have walked away, but I knew that I had to stay and fight this rule again for girls who want to play football. I started another petition. No girl should be banned from a game she loves.

I hope that you join me in my effort to call on the bishops of Pennsylvania to permit young people like me to learn and grow together, not separately. You can sign my petition at change.org/girl in football.

1.Why did the author decide to start the first change.org petition?

A. Because she finished her final season.

B. Because she watched Super Bowl Weekend.

C. Because she was banned from the league in 2016.

D. Because she learned a lot about Title IX regulations.

2.What can we learn about the author?

A. She is smart.    B. She is selfless.

C. She is generous.    D. She is offensive.

3.What is the real purpose of writing the text?

A. To complain the policy is unfair.

B. To express her passion for football.

C. To introduce her change.org petition.

D. To appeal to people to join her in the fight.

4.Where can others sign their names?

A. On the website.    B. In the league.

C. On the papers.    D. In the letters.

 

Day in and day out, Rose, a neat, well-dressed, dark-haired young woman carries out her work at an office in a business park near Cambridge and spends hours studying pictures of children being abused. She watches the images again and again, looking for the tiniest details that might deliver a young victim from hell. They might be as small as the titles of books on a table, the action of making the bed or the images on the posters on the wall—anything that might provide a clue to the place where the child is suffering, and might finally lead the police to the abuser.

How can Rose hear to do such work? And all that for a salary of less than $23,000 a year? She said her motivation in joining the work was to protect the public. "When I first started this job, there was anger at the beginning. But when you see what the children have to endure, you know someone has to be there to protect them. If I can play a small part, I will help make a difference."

The 33-year-old woman is enthusiastic about her job. Rose and her team have done what they could to put the children’s life back together. They are very proud of what they have done.

The nature of her work has changed her for the better. "I’m a lot more focused on the positive, much more relaxed about the world. I enjoy the good people around me," she says. Rose thinks that her job is a bit like giving blood. Maybe you don’t like doing it, but someone has to. She regards it as her duty to help abused children.

1.What is Rose’s job?

A. Managing a big business park.

B. Studying images on the posters on the walls.

C. Teaching and looking after abused children.

D. Finding clues that help save abused children.

2.Which of the following can replace the underlined word "endure" in Paragraph 2?

C. Enjoy.    D. Expect.

3.Why are Rose and her team satisfied with their job?

A. Because nobody in her country dare to abuse children.

B. Because children will live a happier life than ever before.

C. Because the number of children who are abused will be reduced.

D. Because parents in her country will know how to protect their children.

4.What can we infer from the last paragraph?

A. Rose’s life makes her popular.

C. Rose makes a difference to the world.

D. Rose’s life has been positively affected by her job.

When Ron first started with his organization, he loved his job. He went into work every day filled with purpose and passion (热情). Three years later, however, it was hard to recognize him. Now, Ron detests going to work. He feels that his work is meaningless, he’s always stressed, and he calls in sick frequently.

These are basic symptoms (征兆) of burnout. If you’ve experienced this yourself, it’s important that you should know how to recover from it before you have difficulty in having a sense of satisfaction and then dislike your job.

You first need to know why you’ve experienced burnout. First, look at any resentment (愤怒) that you feel towards your work. Often, feelings of resentment point to something important that is missing.

Here’s a good example. Jennifer manages a team around the world, so her workday often starts at 6 a.m. She doesn’t mind this because she likes her team and her job. But she feels resentful when her boss forgets that she starts work so early and repeatedly asks her to stay late, which causes her to miss important time with her family.

In this example, burnout wouldn’t happen if Jennifer disliked her job; in fact, she loves what she does. She experiences burnout because she hates missing out on family time in the evenings.

Take time to think about any negative feelings that you have about your role, and try to get to the root of the problem. Once you’ve known the cause of your burnout, write down at least one way that you can manage that source of stress. This might include giving some of your duties to others, working from home one day a week, or even changing roles.

1.Which of the following is closest in meaning to “detests” in Paragraph 1?

A. Minds.    B. Hates.

C. Avoids.    D. Misses.

2.What does the author say about burnout?

A. It has a bad influence on one’s job.

B. It causes serious health problems.

C. Its cause is unclear.

D. It lasts a short time.

3.What causes Jennifer’s burnout at work?

A. That she works too hard.

B. That she doesn’t like her job.

C. That her boss is too strict with her.

D. That she can’t make time for her family.

4.What does the author advise people to do in the last paragraph?

A. Try to keep great passion at work.

B. Change the role you play in your work.

C. Find out the cause of burnout and solve it.

D. Consider negative feelings as something unimportant.

 

A drug that is used to treat serious bleeding could save thousands of lives of mothers giving birth. A world test of the drug found it reduced (降低) the risk of bleeding deaths during childbirth by nearly one third. The study included 20,000 women in 21 countries, mainly in Africa and Asia. The test was carried out by London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The drug is called tranexamic acid (凝血酸). It is low-cost and researchers said it does not cause serious side effects (副作用) for mothers or babies.

The drug is used to treat mothers for serious bleeding during childbirth. Postpartum hemorrhage (产后出血) is the main cause of mothers’ death around the world, according to the World Health Organization.

Haleema Shakur is the project director for the test. She said though medical condition is improved in many countries, serious bleeding after childbirth remains a big problem in some parts of the world. “It’s one of the biggest killers of mothers. In Africa and Asia, about 10% of women will end up with serious bleeding.” The drug works after a mother gives birth.

Shakur said the best results were reported when the drug was given to women as soon as possible after childbirth. “The earlier you give it — within the first three hours after giving birth — the better the result is.”

The next step will be to provide training for doctors and nurses on how to use it and then to find where the drug is needed. During the test, women were given the drug in a hospital. But researchers are looking for easier ways to use the drug so it can be more widely used in small clinics and the countryside.

1.What can we learn about the drug from the text?

A. It is not very expensive.

B. It can be used for babies.

C. It doesn’t cause any side effects.

D. It is tested only in Africa and Asia.

2.When is the best time to give the drug to a woman?

A. After finding bleeding can’t be controlled.

B. In three hours before giving birth.

C. In one hour after giving birth.

D. During giving birth.

3.What will researchers probably do next?

A. Make medical workers know how to use the drug.

B. Find out how many drugs are needed.

C. Let more people know the drug.

D. Allow people to use the drug.

4.What may be the best title for the text?

A. What’s the Biggest Killer of Women?

B. How We Use Tranexamic Acid Well

C. A Drug Greatly Reduces Bleeding Deaths

D. Care for the Health of Women Giving Birth

 

What do you think of cats? Some people think very lovely. But not all people love cats. Compared with dogs, cats seem to be very lazy and unfriendly. Besides, cats are not known for acts of selflessness (无私). But maybe we’re wrong about them. Don’t believe it? Then meet Pippa, a very unusual cat.

The black-and-white cat was left in a box outside a shop and taken by the British RSPCA to the Jansa family in Whitstable, Kent. They really loved her character (性格) and decided to adopt (收养) it,but they never guessed she’d become a lifesaver.

Eight-year-old Mia Jansa had diabetes and had become good at testing her blood during the day, as well as having something to eat or drink to bring her blood sugar levels back. But the danger was at night. Mia could easily experience hypoglycemic (低血糖症的) situations when she was asleep, which could cause even death.

Soon after she was adopted, Pippa went into Mia’s bedroom in the middle of the night and woke her up. When the child tested her blood sugar levels, she found they were dangerously low. Ever since, Pippa always visits Mia at night. If she can’t get her to wake up, she raises the alarm.

Pippa does this of her own accord,” says Mia’s mother Laura. “We don’t make a request for caring because we don’t want to encourage wrong alarms. She gets plenty of hugs. It gives me peace of mind and I know someone else is keeping an eye on Mia.”

Now the family is so happy that they’ve chosen to adopt it in the first place.

1.Why did the family decide to adopt the cat?

A. Because they considered it as a lifesaver.

B. Because her character interested them.

C. Because they really loved her looks.

D. Because Mia Jansa needed help.

2.What problem did Mia Jansa face?

A. She was bad at testing her blood.

B. She might suffer death in the daytime.

C. She might be in danger while asleep at night.

D. She couldn’t let her blood sugar levels return to normal.

3.For what does Pippa visit Mia at night?

A. To see if her blood sugar levels are normal.

B. To make her laugh when she’s lonely.

C. To make sure that she is safe.

D. To play with the alarm.

4.What does the underlined sentence in Paragraph 5 mean?

A. Pippa does that according to her own habits.

B. Pippa does that without being asked.

C. Pippa does that for her own good.

When people succeed,it is because of hard work,but luck has a lot to do with it.1.Napoleon once said all the hard work and talent in the world can't make up for bad luck.However,hard work can invite good luck.

When it comes to success,luck can mean being in the right place to meet someone.Nothing can replace hard work,but working hard also means you're preparing yourself for opportunity.2.

How many of the great inventions and discoveries came about through a lucky mistake or a lucky chance?One of the biggest lucky mistakes in history is Columbus' so-called discovery of America.He changed history,but he was really looking for India.3.It was backed up by years of studying and calculating.

Success comes from pure luck and no hard work can be a real problem.4.Imagine she's been picked from nowhere because of her looks.She is going to feel insecure,because she knows she didn't do anything to earn her stardom(演员身份).On the other hand,think about an actress who's spent years learning and working.When she finally has good luck and becomes a success,she will handle stardom better.She knows she earns it.

5.When it comes to success,I think that hard work and luck go hand in hand.

A.Opportunity often depends on luck.

B.Luck is also important in people's life.

C.Success without some luck is almost impossible.

D.Hard work plays a very important part in success.

E.However,Columbus’ chance discovery wasn't pure luck.

F.For example,consider a teenage girl who becomes a movie star.

G.People who work hard help make their own luck by being ready when opportunity knocks.

 

Birthdays often involve surprises.But this year's surprise on the birthday of the great British playwright William Shakespeare is surely one of the most dramatic.

On April 22,one day before his 441st birthday anniversary,experts discovered that one of the most recognizable portraits(画像)of William Shakespeare is a fake.This means that we no longer have a good idea of what Shakespeare looked like."It's very possible that many pictures of Shakespeare might be unreliable because many of them are copies of this one,"said an expert from Britain's National Portrait Gallery.

The discovery comes after four months of testing using modern chemistry technology.The experts from the gallery say the image—commonly known as the "Flower portrait"—was actually painted in the 1800s,about two centuries after Shakespeare's death.The art experts who work at the gallery say they also used modern chemistry technology to check the paint on the picture.These checks found traces of paint dating from about 1814.Shakespeare died in 1616,and the date that appears on the portrait is 1609.

“We now think the portrait dates back to around 1818 to 1840.This was when there was a renewed interest in Shakespeare's plays,”Tarnya Cooper,the gallery's curator(馆长),told the Associated President.

The fake picture has often been used as a cover for collections of his plays.It is called the Flower portrait because one of its owners,Desmond Flower,gave it to the Royal Shakespeare Company.

“There have always been questions about the painting,”said David Howells,curator for the Royal Shakespeare Company.“Now we know the truth,we can put the image in its proper place in the history of Shakespearean portraiture.”

Two other images of Shakespeare,are also being studied as part of the investigation and the results will come out later this month.

1.What's the result of the checks for the "Flower portrait"?

A. The date on the portrait doesn't agree with the painting time.

B. Portraits of Shakespeare are all unreliable.

C. 1609 might be when the portrait was drawn.

D. The portrait may be painted in 1616.

2.What is the Flower portrait often used as?

A. A portrait for people on the wall.

B. A cover for collections of Shakespeare's plays.

C. A picture in collections of Shakespeare's plays.

D. A back cover for collections of Shakespeare's plays.

3.The best title for this text is “       ”.

A. Birthdays often involve surprises

B. One of Shakespeare's works is a fake

C. How can we know Shakespeare's appearance?

D. The surprise on the 441st birthday of Shakespeare

4.Which of the following can be the last sentence in the text?

A. Soon we'll know which portrait is reliable.

B. Maybe we cannot find a real portrait of Shakespeare.

C. If the two portraits are found to be false,they will test more.

D. For now what Shakespeare really looked like still remains a mystery.

More than loo genes are related with increased risk of developing schizophrenia(精神分裂症),bipolar disorder (躁郁症)and alcoholism(酗酒),confirms a large study published in the recent issue of the British scientific journal Nature.

The world's largest study into the genetic basis of mental illnesses was led by researchers from British universities,including University College London (UCL),Cardiff University and King's College London (KCL).

Researchers believe that they are now much closer than before to understanding the complex biological causes, which make some people being at high risk of developing mental illnesses.They also believe that these findings could lead to new treatments.

The researchers analyzed the DNA of about 37,000 patients with schizophrenia,bipolar disorder or alcoholism, and compared the smallest genetic changes to those found in about 113,000 healthy people.They then identified about 128 independent genetic variants(变体)at 108 locations on the human chromosomes(染色体)that contribute significantly to developing schizophrenia—83 of these sites have never before been linked to the illness,according to scientists.

For example,people with the variant of the GRM3 gene,thought to be important in brain signaling,are around 2 to 3 times more likely to develop schizophrenia or alcohol dependence.The variant,which is found in approximately one in every 200 people,is also associated with a three times risk of developing bipolar disorder.

"We could be looking at the next big drug target for treating mental illness,"Professor David Curtis from UCL, co-author of the paper,said."The work opens up new ways to prevent and treat mental illnesses by revealing the mechanisms involved in their development."

1.What can we learn from Paragraph 3?

A. Researchers are disappointed at curing biological causes.

B. Researchers are worried about the complex biological causes.

C. Researchers have found the method of curing biological causes.

D. Researchers are confident for figuring out the complex biological causes.

2.According to Paragraph 4,the researchers found       .

A. there are 37,000 patients with mental illnesses in the world

B. most of the sites have never before been linked to mental illnesses

C. there is little difference between the patients and the healthy people

D. the cause of mental illnesses has nothing to do with the genetic changes

3.We can learn from Paragraph 5       .

A. the variant of the GRM3 gene is important

B. the number of people with the variant of the GRM3 gene is large

C. the number of people with the variant of the GRM3 gene is small

D. people with the variant of the GRM3 gene aren't likely to suffer schizophrenia

4.What's the main topic discussed in the text?

A. The importance of gene variants.

B. The research of gene variants.

C. The cause of mental illnesses.

D. Gene variants linked to mental illnesses.

 

One hot night last July,when our new baby wouldn't or couldn't sleep,I tried everything I could think of: a warm bottle,songs,gentle rocking.Nothing would settle him.Guessing that I had a long night ahead of me,I brought a portable TV into his room,figuring that watching the late movie was as good a way as any to kill the hours till dawn. To my surprise,as soon as the TV lit up,the baby quieted right down,his little eyes focused brightly on the tube.Not to waste an opportunity for sleep,I then tiptoes(踮着脚走)out of the room,leaving him to watch the actors celebrate John Bellushi's forty-fifth birthday.

My wife and I heard none of the baby that night,and the next morning when I went into his room,I found that he was still watching TV himself.

I found in my baby's behavior a symbol of the new generation.My wife and I had given him some books to examine,but he merely spit upon them.When we read to him,he did not feel comfortable.And so it is in the schools. We find that our students don't read and that they look down upon reading and scold those of us who teach it.All that they want to do is to watch TV.After this experience with the baby,however,I have come to a conclusion:"Let them watch it!"If television is that much more attractive to children than books,why should we fight about it?Let them watch it all that they want!

1.Why did the author bring a TV set into his son's room?

A. To make his son keep quiet.

B. In order not to let his son feel lonely.

C. To spend the night by watching TV programs.

D. To make his son go to sleep as soon as possible.

2.From the text we can learn that the school children       .

A. prefer reading to watching TV

B. like watching TV after school

C. would rather watch TV than read books

D. like their teachers who teach them reading

3.What does the underlined phrase "fight about" in the last paragraph mean according to the text?

A. Talk about.    B. Think about.

C. Care about.    D. Quarrel about.
