Recently,people were moved by a story taking the place in Thailand.It told about a girl whom had a quarrel with her mother and ran away from home.After several days,the girl walked into a restaurant in hungers.A man who was the cook invites her to sit down and then made some delicious food for him.The girl was very surprising.Then the cook told the girl that a woman took a photo and asked him whether he seen the girl.But the woman gave him some money to cook for the girl if she turned up.Until then the girl realized how greatly her mother was and she should be grateful on her.

 

How long can a person live?How tall can a human being grow?The Guinness(吉尼斯)World Records book lists many of the greatest records1.the greatest potentials(潜能).But it's a fossil record.It speaks only to what has been done,not how much can2.(do),which is why it has to be constantly updated(更新).

Take the3.(surprise )case of the British middle-distance runner Roger Bannister for example.In the 1950s, experts said4.the human body could not run a mile in less than four minutes.Then Bannister came along in 1954 and proved it could5.act be run in 3:59.4.Once Bannister broke the imaginary barrier,6.(sudden )the floodgates opened;scores of runners started besting(击败)the four-minute mark every year,each one7.(fast) than the last. How fast does a human have the ability8.(run)the mile today?We honestly don't know.That is why we hold our 9.(breathe )during every Olympics.

All we know10.(be)that this kind of change is possible.Keep this in mind the next time you feel stuck or challenged.Just because it hasn't been done before doesn't mean it's impossible.

5 Ways to Get Work Done

As the day draws to a close,are you having trouble finishing your work? You don't need to end up with a sense of failure.In the hours left,the following ways can help you get things done to have a sense of achievement.

1.Trick yourself.

1..So,try this: add something to your to-do-list that takes only 30 seconds to finish.Feeling a bit inspired? Then use as short a deadline to deal with another.Or focus on something by giving yourself only five minutes,and then work as long as you can.

2.Take lots of breaks.

Find yourself checking your cellphone or reading the Internet?2..Have some breaks,and you'll be able to face your work again with delight.

3.Use rewards.

One-hundred more words on this report,and you can have a cup of coffee.One more phone call,and you can check your personal email.3..

4.4..

Most of us spend too much of our day sitting.It's bad for our health and bad for our concentration.Take a walk or do some jumping in a free meeting room—anything to get you refreshed and your brain working again.

5.Work as a team.

When you have a big project deadline coming up,you can even keep a meeting room and work in the same place.5.,but also you'll feel more connected to your co-workers while doing it.

A.Get physical exercise

B.Don't feel guilty

C.Do things energetically

D.Not only will you get more done

E.Rewards are wonderful motivators

F.Endless work makes us busy and tired every day

G.A feeling of having made progress will inspire you

 

What would work be like if you had no boss?Imagine you could make all your own decisions and no one told you what to do.

A Swedish software company,Crisp,decided to get rid of their CEO.First,they needed to find out what a CEO actually did.Then they shared those duties among staff and board members,which is exactly what they did.And the employees believes it's been a good change.An employee named Heinrik Kniberg says the company can now act faster,"If you want to get something done,you stand up and start driving that.Workers are also more active and satisfied."And any big decisions are made during the all-member meetings several times a year.

So,if it's working well for Crisp,could this model become more widespread? Online retailer(零售商)Zappos tried out a similar plan but had unpleasant results.Almost a fifth of its staff decided to leave,and CEO Tony Hsieh admitted that "self-management is not for everyone".Mr Houston,founder of file-sharing service Drew Dropbox,says that total freedom doesn't always feel good,because you no longer know what you're supposed to do,what is important and you're bumping up against other people."

Would you like to work somewhere with no boss?

1.Why can the software company Crisp act faster now?

A. Because workers feel more satisfied.

B. Because workers can get things done directly.

C. Because things are decided by all members.

D. Because workers share CEO's duties.

2.The passage mainly talks about      .

A. whether a company can go without a boss

B. whether workers can work independently

C. whether people can accept a no-boss company

D. whether people can enjoy total freedom

3.What's the author's attitude towards the no-boss model?

A. Positive.    B. Negative.

C. Objective    D. Subjective.

 

Ever since I was a kid I had a 6 second rule.That means that if I had something I needed to do but didn't want to, I'd count till 6 and do it anyway.My personal rule was to just never ever break that rule,that at 6,I HAD to get it going.Most of the time I'd use it to get out of bed or get out of the bath.Sometimes I'd also use it to restrict my time playing "ok in 6 seconds I'll stop playing with my dolls."

As I grew older,I'd use it as a motivation to get it going with my homework,get off messenger,etc.It really worked well,the same rule applied;whatever happens,don't cheat the "rule of 6." Most of the time,I wouldn't even have to count till 6 because I knew it would just mean I d have to do it,so I'd just do it anyway.As an adult,I've pretty much conditioned myself to do things by the rule of 6.I've pretty much mastered most usual things in my life but the rule of 6 never fails me when I start something new.Exercising,running,getting cooking,starting reading,it just works for me.

At the time,when I was 6,6 was my favorite number.So just go ahead and pick a number from 1-10 (although Id suggest 3-10) and try it.The important thing is not just to let yourself down.Like any other trick,it only works if you allow it to.

1.As a kid,the author,      .

A. played with his dolls all the time

B. hated to get out of bed very early

C. formed a good habit by the rule of 6

D. always needed to do something unwillingly

2.The main idea of the second paragraph is      .

A. The rule was not useful as he grew older

B. Cheating the rule means that he can't do anything well

C. The rule works well for him all the time

D. The rule never fails him when he starts something new

3.Which one in the following sentence is WRONG?

A. The author would use the rule to get out of bed.

B. As the author grew older,he gave up the rule.

C. 6 was the author's favourite number.

D. The 6 second rule is useful and helpful to the author.

4.What can be a suitable title for the text?

A. A 6 Second Rule

B. The Most Useful Habit

C. My Favorite Number

D. A Meaningful Story

 

The winner of the Art Fund Museum of the Year will be announced on 5 July.Art Fund director Stephen Deuchar said,"All the finalists have had a remarkable year,reaching—in a range of ways—new heights in their efforts to serve and inspire their visitors."The£100,000 award is being competed for by the following museums:

The Lapworth Museum of Geology

This museum,operated by the University of Birmingham,re-opened last June after a£2.7m redevelopment that was designed to restore it to its 1920s grandeur(宏伟)and create three new galleries.

The National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art

Officially opened by the Queen in November,this complex is home to the National Horseracing Museum,the Fred Packard Museum and Galleries of British Sporting Art,and a yard for the Retraining of Race horses charity.

It is also home to two of the Queen's former race horses and a virtual Clare Balding.

Sir John Soane's Museum

Housed in the former home of 19th Century architect Sir John Soane,this gallery and museum has completed a£7m restoration intended to open up "lost" areas and return it to how it looked when he died and left it to the nation in 1837.

That includes creating 33 percent more space and putting 10 percent more objects on display.

Tate Modern

Eighteen years after it opened on London's South Bank,Tate Modern had a record 5.8 million visitors in 2017. That was partly down to the opening of a 10-storey extension,the Switch House,and exhibitions of photographs owned by Sir Elton John and art work by Georgia O'Keeffe.

Those who are in love really know each other's thoughts and can see into one another's ice cream bowl.This truth became so clear to me the other day.

At about 11:00 a.m.,my husband Gary called from work to see what was up at home."Oh nothing,"I said,"just having a little early lunch."Then he said,"So how's the coffee ice cream I bought?"I could almost "hear" him smiling.

"What?"I was stunned.How in the world did he know I was eating ice cream?I never eat the ice cream, especially in the morning.Besides,he knows that I had been trying to diet again.However,I could hardly hide the laughter in my voice as I calmly asked,"Why would you think I'm eating coffee ice cream?"

Gary said,"Uh...first,you said 'Just having a little early lunch' in a guilty,high voice.Second,your tongue must be rather cold because your words were a bit slow."What he said made me laugh out loud."The other thing is,I noticed you left some coffee ice cream untouched last night.That was like me hiding some cigarettes in the corner to enjoy later."

We laughed long and hard together before he asked me gently,"What happened?Er...something must have happened to make you eat ice cream before lunch."

Suddenly,I felt a rush of love for the man on the other end of the line.He knew me well-cared enough to find out what was bothering me,and trusted me enough to help me laugh at myself.

March 16th is World Sleep Day. This year’s slogan (标语) is “Breathe Easily, Sleep Well”. Its aim is to celebrate the benefits of good and healthy sleep.

Sleep is like food for the brain. Enough sleep helps the body and brain grow and develop. According to the National Sleep Foundation in the US, adults need seven to nine hours of sleep every night. For students aged 10 to 17, a healthy amount is about eight to nine hours per night.

But many students don’t get enough sleep because of early school start time and heavy homework. About 80 percent of middle school students don’t get enough sleep, the China Youth and Children Research Center reported. For some students, they want to sleep early, but they keep worrying about their schoolwork and can’t fall asleep quickly. For others, they may even have insomnia which might keep them awake (醒着的)all night.

These sleeping problems greatly affect people’s lives. Experts have shown that lack of sleep for teenagers leads to poor grades. Students without enough sleep cannot pay attention in class or do well in sports. Also, the lack of sleep may make them depressed (沮丧的).

Luckily, with good sleeping habits, it is easier to fall asleep. Some of these good habits include avoiding drinks that make people excited late in the day, going to sleep at the same time each night, and sleeping in a comfortable place that is dark, quiet, and neither too warm nor too cold.

1.If Li Hong is 15years old, how much sleep does she need every night?

A. 10-12 hours.    B. 8-9 hours.

C. 7 hours.    D. Less than 7 hours.

2.What might happen if teenagers don’t get enough sleep?

A. They might do well in sports.

B. Their bodies and brains might grow better.

C. They might feel depressed.

D. They might not be able to finish their schoolwork.

3.The underlined word “insomnia” means “_______” in Chinese.

A. 健忘症    B. 肥胖症

C. 多动症    D. 失眠症

4.Which of the following are good sleeping habits?

a. Sleeping in a bright place. 

b. Going to bed at the same time.

c. Sleeping in a dark and quiet place.    

d. Drinking something that makes you excited.

A. a-b    B. a-c

C. b-c    D. b-d

 

What is language for? Some people seem to think it's for practicing grammar rules and earning lists of words—the longer the list, the better. That's wrong.Language is for the exchange(交流)of ideas and information.It's meaningless knowing all about a language if you can't use it freely. Many students I have met know hundreds of grammar rules, but they can't speak correctly or fluently(流利地).They are afraid of making mistakes.One shouldn't be afraid of making mistakes when speaking a foreign language. Native speakers make mistakes and break rules, too.Bernard saw once wrote, "Foreigners often speak English too correctly."But the mistakes that native speakers make are different from those that Chinese students make. They're English mistakes in the English language.And if enough native speakers break a rule, it is no longer a rule. What used to be wrong becomes right.People not only make history, they make language.But a people can only make its own language.It can't make another people's language. So Chinese students of English should pay attention to grammar, but they shouldn't overdo(做过头)it. They should put communication first.

1.Language is used to ________.

A. express oneself    B. practise grammar rules

C. talk with foreigners only    D. learn lists of words

2.Generally, when an American or an Englishman speaks English, he ________.

A. never makes mistakes    B. often makes mistakes

C. can't avoid making mistakes    D. always makes mistakes

3."Foreigners often speak English too correctly."This sentence means that ________.

A. foreigners speak correct English

B. foreigners speak incorrect English

C. foreigners speak English according to the grammar rules

D. foreigners never make mistakes when they speak English

4.When we speak a foreign language, we should ________.

A. speak in Chinese way

B. speak by the rules

C. speak to native speakers

D. not be afraid of making mistakes

Last year, my family moved to a new city and I went to study in a place where I had no idea about anything. As time was passed, however, I made some friends who were the coolest in whole world. They were so amazed that I couldn’t imagine life at school without her. I never thought of have a so-called best friend, but later I meet one. She is the kindest girl I have ever known. She never believes all the bad things other tell her about me. Wherever I am down, she does many funny things to make me happiness. Anytime we mess up but fight, we always get together again soon.

 

The capital city of South Korea, Seoul, is putting up 300 new street sings with the purpose of 1. (warn) pedestrians about the dangers of walking while absorbed in their smartphones.

The first signs have been at five locations in the hope 2. they’ll stop “smartphone sleepwalkers” in their tracks. One sign at a major traffic crossroad shows a person staring at a handheld device(设备),3.(complete) unaware of the danger of being hit by a car.

While some signs 4. (attach)to traffic light poles, others are on the pavement in order to attract those looking down 5. their mobile devices. But some locals aren’t sure whether those signs will work. One man points out that “most people 6. are using their phones on the street aren’t going to be able to see them”

More than 1000 smartphone-related traffic collisions were recorded in South Korea in 2014,  7.(compare) to 437 such incidents in 2009. South Korea has one of the 8. (high) smartphone ownership rate in the world, but like many Asian countries it’s also been trying to handle rising levels of 9. (addict) to the devices.

While Seoul’s innovation(创新) is government-funded, two Swedish artists 10.(have) a similar idea late last year, putting up unofficial smartphone warning signs in Stockholm.

Like it or not, there will be difficult times in our lives. You might lose your job, fail in your exams or have an illness. 1. Here are some ways not to lose hope during difficult times.

1.1Have faith.

2. No matter how bad the situation is, things will turn out to be good in the end. Several years ago I failed to get my master’s degree. It was a really bad experience.3. It was of much better quality than my previous university. Experiences like this strengthen my belief that having faith is important during difficult times.

2.Be around supportive people.

Going through difficult times is hard, and going through them alone is even harder. You need a group of positive people who can support you. 4. If you don’t, my suggestion is to start looking for one. Don’t wait until you need it, because it will be too late by then. You need the community before difficult times come.

3.Help others.

An additional benefit of being in a good community is that it encourages you to think about other people. It pushes you to help others and, therefore, think about other people. 5. As a result, your situation won’t look as bad as it would be otherwise. Often the situation looks worse than it really is because we give too much attention. Shifting(移开)some of your attention away will put the situation in a better view.

A.Your community helps a lot.

B.Whatever it is, it’s important not to lose hope.

C.However, I changed my attitude towards failure.

D.In this way you shift your focus away from yourself.

E.But I got a scholarship at an overseas university later.

F.You must believe that things will work out well eventually.

G.You should become part of a community that cares for one another.

 

Weather experts said this year could be one of the strongest EL Nino events in recorded history. El Nino means severe weather conditions in parts of the world. In eastern Africa, for example, Kenya and Uganda are preparing for possible flooding. Yet South Africa and Malawi are already dealing with extremely dry weather.

El Nino is Spanish for “the child”. It usually begins in December, near the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. In fact, the weather event was named in his honor. El Nino develops when winds off the west coast of South America weaken. This permits warm water in the western Pacific to expand toward the east and the Americas. At the same time, clouds and rain over the warm water move east, too. El Nio conditions normally appear only about twice every 10 years. Usually, El Nino conditions continue for about 12 to 18 months. They bring warm weather to some areas. These areas become wetter than normal, while others become drier.

The United Nations Children’s Fund warns that many people are at risk from hunger, disease and water shortages resulting from El Nino. In the east and southern Africa up to 11 million children could be affected. East African countries usually experience heavy rainfall during the El Nino. Southern Africa usually has little rainfall which may lead to wildfires or drought(干旱).

Weather changes caused by El Nino depend on the strength of the condition. In the early 1980s, strong El Nino was linked to dry weather in Australia and Asia, rain and flooding in South America and high temperatures in many parts of the U.S. The years later, smaller El Nino caused trouble in parts of the U.S. It caused severe floods in the Southeast and the Middle West. Tom Di Leberto is a meteorologist(气象学家) at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Washington, D.C. He said this year could be the third strongest El Nino on record. But we will not know for sure until all the weather records are examined.

In Shanghai, the historic Bund(外滩)catches much attention---many former banks and trading houses along the Huangpu River, built a century ago in different architectural styles, are monuments to the grandeur(辉煌)of that era. It can also suffocating(令人窒息的)on weekends, with tourists struggling for taking photos.

For local residents, another part of the riverfront now known as the West Bund has become a far more appealing place to spend the weekend. Here, a once industrial area known for aircraft manufacturing(制造)has been transformed into a green corridor where local residents come to ride bikes or enjoy picnics on the grassy riverbank.

In the last two years, museums and galleries have also started popping up as part of the city’s plan to turn the West Bund into a world-class art and culture center.

On one end of the waterfront area, two huge industrial buildings have been transformed into the West Bund Art Center, site of a new annual art exhibition, and the Yuz Museum, focusing on contemporary works. On the other end is another institution exhibiting a mix of classical antiquities(古董)and modern Chinese art, called the Long Museum West Bund.

It’s an ambitious effort. Under a national five-year plan to promote culture by building more museums, Shanghai has set out to transform itself from a commercial center into a cultural one.

To achieve this, the city has built may museum buildings, including the Shanghai Natural History Museum, designed by the American architects, and the Power Station of Art, a Tate Modern-inspired art museum in a former power plant that hosted a show of the Chinese artist Cai Guoqiang’s drawings.

I was lucky enough to have a chance to study in the United States as an international student from the Ukraine when I was fourteen years old. I went to a wonderful school,West Catholic High School, for my freshman year.

I remember my first day at that school as if it were yesterday. I was very nervous, and I could feel my heartbeat on the tips of my toes. My main fear was that I would not be able to express myself due to the language barrier. I was trying to have as little communication as I possibly could. And I almost succeeded, until we had to introduce ourselves in front of the class.

And the moment the word “international”flew out of my mouth, i was surrounded by thirty people who were asking questions one after another. I remember some of the questions were “Where is the Ukraine? Is it a kingdom?”“Do you have McDonald’s? Does it taste the same?”and “Say something in your language.” It turned out to be the opposite of less communication, but it was so much fun.

During the first three months, I certainly experienced a bit of cultural shock. I think Americans are the nicest people I have ever met in my entire life. They always smile and say, “Hi, how are you?”

One day, I noticed the students looking at me suspiciously. Finally , my classmate came up to my locker and whispered, “Is that true that you are a princess(公主)and that you came to study here so that nobody would recognize you?” At one point, I even had an image of myself wearing a gown and waving at the crowd. What ? People do have a wild imagination!

During my study abroad experience, I saw a totally new world, experienced great culture, met a lot of incredible(不可思议的)people and improved my language. This trip inspired me to learn foreign languages. That is one of the reasons why I speak five different languages today.

B. prepared a special gift for her

C. were eager to make friends with her

D. showed interest in her country’s culture.

3.What does the underlined word “suspiciously” in Para.5 probably mean?

A. Doubtfully    B. Excitedly

C. Angrily    D. Fearfully

4.What can we learn from the text?

A. The author decided to settle in the USA.

C. The author always imagined herself as a princess.
