Move More

Make it a daily thing to find ways to move your body. 1. Climb stairs instead of taking the elevator. Walk your dog. Play with your kids. It doesn’t have to be an hour in the gym or a 45-minute dance class. But that’s great when you’re up to it. At the same time, move more.

Quit Smoking

Ever since 1960 when it was announced that smoking was harmful to health, Americans have been reducing their use of tobacco products. Just recently, we’ve seen more and more teens smoking. Could it be the Hollywood influence? 2. Take care! Warn your children against smoking.

3.

While recent studies show a glass of wine or one drink a day can help protect against heart disease, more than that can cause other health problems such as liver and kidney(肝肾)disease and cancer.

Reduce Stress

Easier said than done, stress comes in many ways. 4.  Spend 30 minutes a day doing something you like such as walking on the beach or in a park, reading a good book, visiting a friend, listening to relaxing music, and watching a funny movie.

Protect Yourself from Pollution

If you can’t live in a smog-free environment, at least avoid smoke-filled rooms. 5.Exercise indoors in air conditioning when air quality is good.

 

A. Avoid Excessive(过度的) Drinking

B. Keep a Positive Mental Outlook

During an earthquake, you should know what to do. If the earthquake strikes while you’re inside a house, you should lie on the floor under a strong table or other furniture. If there is no furniture, you can cover your head with your arms and keep still in the corner of the room. You should keep away from windows, glass walls, or anything that can fall.

If you are in bed, hold firmly onto your bed and make use of a pillow to safeguard your head. You may use a doorway but only when it is close to you. It should also be considered whether it is strong enough to deal with the load.

If you are running out, do not use lifts, even if they work. Electricity may go out at any time. Many injuries happen when people try to rush out. This means you ought to stay in your house or perhaps wherever you are.

When you stay outdoors, you should stay far from buildings, power wires or lights. You should be in the open until the quake stops. Remember that many earthquake deaths outside the house come from falling-apart walls, flying glass and other falling things.

If an earthquake strikes and you are driving, you should pull up to the side of the highway and stop as quickly as possible. You ought not to stop under trees, buildings or energy wires. Don’t stop in the middle of the street as it could trouble others.

When trapped, you shouldn’t move. Your mouth should be covered with a piece of clothing or a handkerchief. This is because it is possible for you to breathe in some dust. Do not shout whenever possible. You should only shout in the end to get help from rescuers.

1.What is the writer’s purpose in writing this passage?

A. To tell us the dangers of an earthquake.

America is growing older. Fifty-eight years ago, only 4 out of every 100 people in the United States were 65 or older. Today, 10 out of every 100 Americans are over 65. The aging of the population will affect American society in many ways—education, medicine, and business. Quietly, the graying of America has made us a very different society—one in which people have a quite different idea of what kind of behavior is suitable(合适的) at various ages.

A person’s age no longer tells you anything about his/her social position, marriage or health. There’s no longer a particular year in which one goes to school or goes to work or gets married or starts a family. The social clock that kept us on time and told us when to go to school, get a job, or stop working isn’t as strong as it used to be. It doesn’t surprise us to hear of a 29-year-old university president or a 35-year-old grandmother, or a 70-year-old man who has become a father for the first time. Public ideas are changing.

Many people say, “I am much younger than my mother—or my father—was at my age.” No one says “Act your age” any more. We’ve stopped looking with surprise at older people who act in youthful ways.

1.It can be learnt from the text that the aging of the population in America________

A. has made people feel younger

B. has changed people’s social position

C. has changed people’s understanding of age

D. has slowed down the country’s social development

2.The underlined word “one” in the first paragraph refers to ________.

A. a society    B. America

C. a place    D. population

3.“Act your age” in Paragraph 3 means people should________.

A. be active when they are old

B. do the right thing at the right age

C. show respect for their parents young or old

D. take more physical exercise suitable to their age

4.If a 25-year-old man becomes general manager of a big firm, the writer of the text would most probably consider it________.

A. normal    B. wonderful

C. unbelievable    D. unreasonable

 

England is not a big country: from north to south and from east to west it is only about three hundred miles across. But for a small country it has a surprising range of climate(多样性的气候). People who have never visited England or who have visited only one part of it often make the mistake of thinking that it is a cold and wet country. Except for the summer months of June to September, this is probably true of the north of England and the Midlands. In the south, however, the climate is much more pleasant. One result is that when people retire(退休)from the job in the north, they often prefer to move down to the south.

Perhaps the warmest part of the country is the southwest, which consists of (is made up of)the counties(郡)of Devon and Cornwall, where palm trees, bamboo and many semitropical(亚热带)plants grow well. Flowers and vegetables ripen(成熟)as much as a month earlier than those elsewhere. Farmers in the areas gain a higher price for their vegetables and flowers because they are ready earlier. In winter there may be several feet of snow in other parts of England but there will probably be no snow at all in the southwest. This may be one of the reasons why the southwest is one of England’s most popular holiday areas.

1.England is a country ________.

A. with a cold and wet climate

B. with a pleasant climate

C. with a surprising climate

D. with climates of various kinds

2.According to the passage, ________.

A. flowers and vegetables from Devon are on the market one month earlier

B. farmers in the southwest grow as many vegetables and flowers as farmers elsewhere

C. people in the southwest have to pay a higher price for vegetables and flowers

D. vegetables in Cornwall ripen as much as a month earlier than flowers

3.In the north of England and the Midlands, ________.

A. it is cold and wet all the year round

B. the climate is pleasant as a whole

C. it is warm most of the time in a year

D. only the summer is not cold or wet

 

Good morning. The program today is about music. The word “music” comes from the Greek word “muse”. The Muses are the goddesses of the arts. Music is only one of the arts. It is like the spoken language, but it uses sounds. Today’s program brings together music from different corners of the world. Who invented music? Who sang the first song? No one knows exactly the answers to these questions. But we know that music plays an important part in almost everyone’s life. Babies and young children love to hear people singing to them. When they are a little older, they like to sing the songs they have heard. When children go to school, their world of music grows. In the middle grades students take music lessons. When they reach high school, they become more and more interested in listening to pop music.

The records we have chosen for you today are from American country music, Indian music, pop music and so on. Music has different meanings for everyone. It can make people happy or it can make them sad. Music is now heard everywhere, in shops, on buses and at home. In this program we shall study the language of music. We shall be trying to find out more about how music works. We shall try to find out how music says what people feel. It is worth making the effort. Only then can we say why one piece of music is good and another is bad.

Now, here comes the music today. I shall explain why they are all good music...

1.What is the first paragraph mainly about?

A. Some knowledge about music.

B. The origin of music.

Every student has his own style of studying and it's up to you to use the available resources to be as effective and productive as possible.Here are some tips on how to teach yourself to study effectively.

1.When determining the best approach,you need to assess your personality.Some people can read for hours while others can't sit still through more than one chapter.Find your pace,improve it and work around your strengths and weaknesses.It's up to you whether to join a study group or learn by yourself.

●Set a goal.2.It'll not only help you keep focused and stay on track but also help you organize your time and activities.

●Learn over time.3.If you don't know or understand the lesson from the start,you won't get it the night before your big test.It's best to study smaller loads of information repeated over a period of time.

●Set a realistic and reasonable schedule.4.Create a routine schedule for your studying time.Strictly follow this schedule so as to develop an effective studying session.

●Have time to rest.It's necessary to have enough time to rest in order to regain all the energy used up by the body from all the studying.5.Communicate with other people and participate in recreational activities to help you relax and refresh your mind.

A.Know yourself.

B.Have good study habits.

C.It's impossible to learn a lot of things in a short time.

D.Try to discover the type of reading that best suits you.

E.Allocate your time between studying and other activities.

F.Your mind won't be as sharp if you don't have ample sleep.

G.You need to determine what you want to achieve in a given subject.

 

If you are hungry,what do you do?Grab a piece of your favorite meal and stay quiet after that?Just like your stomach,even your mind is hungry.But it never lets you know,because you keep it busy thinking about your dream lover,favorite star and many such absurd things.So it silently began to pay careful attention to your needs and never let itself grow.When mind loosens its freedom to grow,creativity gets a full stop.

This might be the reason why we all sometimes think “What happens next?”,“Why can't I think?”,“Why am I always given the difficult problems?”Well this is the result of our own karma(宿命)of using our brain for thinking of not-so-worthy things.

Hunger of the mind can be actually settled through extensive reading.Now why reading and not watching TV? Because reading has been the most educative tool used by us right from the childhood.Just like that to develop other aspects of our life,we have to take help of reading.You have innumerable number of books in this world which will answer all your "How to?" questions.Once you read a book,you just don't run your eyes through the lines,but even your mind decodes(解码)it and explains it to you.The interesting part of the book is stored in your mind as a seed.

Now this seed is unknowingly used by you in your future to develop new ideas.The same seed if used many times,can help you link and relate a lot of things,of which you would have never thought of in your wildest dreams! This is nothing lout creativity.The more the number of books you read,the more your mind will open up.Also this improves your speaking skills to a large extent and also makes a significant contribution to your vocabulary.Within no time you start speaking English or any language fluently with your friends or other people and you never seem to run out of the right words at the right time.

1.What does the author mean by saying that our mind is hungry?

A. We don't read books.    B. Our creativity gets a full stop.

C. We don't have a good memory.    D. We don't know what to do next.

2.One's mind is hungry because he/she      .

A. can't work out things well

B. loosens the freedom to grow

C. is mentally busy with many absurd things

D. begins to pay careful attention to his needs

3.Which of the following is NOT the advantage of reading?

A. Helping you develop your creativity.

B. Helping you enlarge your vocabulary.

C. Helping you improve your speaking skills.

D. Helping you run your eyes through the lines.

4.By reading more,we are sure to      .

A. perform better mentally in the future

B. dream the wildest dreams

C. store books in your mind

D. speak English fluently

 

Idema,a Dutch Sinologist(汉学家),has served as the director of the Chinese Languages and Cultures Department at Leiden University of the Netherlands and was also director of Harvard's Fairbank Center for East Asian Research.He has studied ancient Chinese plays,novels and literature,and has authored or translated a number of influential books published in English and other languages.

The 70-year-old Dutch Sinologist recalled his half-century-long romance with Chinese culture during a recent visit to Beijing.As a child,the vivid descriptions of China in Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winner Pearl S.Buck’s books sparked Idema's interest in the country.He later read classic Chinese literature and spent whole days pouring through works at the National Library of China.

While many other experts on China focused on the country's economic transformation,Idema continued to study traditional Chinese literature."There were scholars studying law,religion and society,but not traditional Chinese literature,which was my personal interest,"Idema explains.

Finding reference books for his research,especially regional publications,used to be a huge challenge,and Idema used to spend a lot of time collecting books and other materials during visits to China.Now it is much more convenient with the Internet.

Idema usually chooses less-known subjects for his research and tries to get firsthand materials.In recent years, he has devoted himself to translating Chinese folk tales and writing about Chinese folk society and folk culture.

"Traditional Chinese culture is a passion.I have been studying it for 50 years and will continue to do so,"says the retired professor.

More than 10 years ago,it was difficult to buy a tasty pineapple.The fruits that made it to the UK were green on the outside and,more often than not,hard with an unpleasant taste within.Then in 1966,the Del Monte Gold pineapple produced in Hawaii first hit our shelves.

The new type of pineapple looked more yellowy-gold than green.It was slightly softer on the outside and had a lot of juice inside.But the most important thing about this new type of pineapple was that it was twice as sweet as the hit-and-miss pineapples we had known.In no time,the Del Monte Gold took the market by storm,rapidly becoming the world's best-selling pineapple variety,and delivering natural levels of sweetness in the mouth,up until then only found in tinned pineapple.

In nutrition it was all good news too.This nice tasting pineapple contained four times more vitamin C than the old green variety.Nutritionists said that it was not only full of vitamins,but also good against some diseases.People were understandably eager to be able to buy this wonderful fruit.The new type of pineapple was selling fast9 and the Del Monte Gold pineapple rapidly became a fixture in the shopping basket of the healthy eater.

Seeing the growing market for its winning pineapple,Del Monte tried to keep market to itself.But other fruit companies developed similar pineapples.Del Monte turned to law for help,but failed.Those companies argued successfully that Del Monte's attempts to keep the golden pineapple for itself were just a way to knock them out the market.

A. that people enjoy eating

B. that people use as a gift

C. that is always present

Meeting people from another culture can be difficult.From the beginning,people may send the wrong signal.Or they may pay no attention to signals from another person who is trying to develop a relationship.

Different cultures emphasize the importance of relationship building to a greater or lesser degree.For example, business in some countries is not possible until there is a relationship of trust.Even with people at work,it is necessary to spend a lot of time in "small talk",usually over a glass of tea,before they do any job.In many European countries,like the UK or France,people find it easier to build up a lasting working relationship at restaurants or cafe rather than at the office.

Talk and silence may also be different in some cultures.I once made a speech in Thailand.I had expected my speech to be a success and start a lively discussion;instead there was an uncomfortable silence.The people present just stared at me and smiled.After getting to know their ways better,I realized that they thought I was talking too much.In my own culture,we express meaning mainly through words,but people there sometimes feel too many words are unnecessary.

Even within Northern Europe,cultural differences can cause serious problems.Certainly,English and German cultures share similar values;however,Germans prefer to get down to business more quickly.We think that they are rude.In fact,this is just because one culture starts discussions and makes decisions more quickly.

People from different parts of the world have different values,and sometimes these values are quite against each other.However,if we can understand them better,a multicultural environment will offer a wonderful chance for us to learn from each other.

Sweetest Day is always the third Saturday in October.This holiday is much more important in some regions than in others (Detroit,Cleveland and Buffalo being the biggest Sweetest Day cities).It is a holiday that is gaining in popularity every year throughout the country.

Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October as a day to make someone happy.It is an occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember not only the sick,aged,and orphaned,but also friends,relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed.

Over 60 years ago,a Cleveland man,believing that the city's orphans and shut-ins too often felt forgotten and neglected,formed the idea of showing them that they were remembered.He did this through the distribution of small gifts.With the help of his friends and neighbors,he distributed these remembrances on a Saturday in October.During the years that followed,other Clevelanders began to participate in the celebration ceremony,which came to be called "Sweetest Day".In time,the Sweetest Day idea of spreading cheer to the poor was broadened to include everyone,and became an occasion for remembering others with a kind act or a small gift.And soon the idea spread to other cities all over the country.

Sweetest Day is not based on any single group's religious belief or on a family relationship.It is a reminder that a thoughtful word or deed enriches life and gives it meaning.Because for many people remembering takes the form of gift-giving,Sweetest Day offers us the opportunity to show others that we care,in a practical way.

Tom was a clever boy,but his parents were poor,so he had to work in his spare time and during his holidays to pay for his education.In spite of this,he managed to get to the university,but it was so expensive to study there that during the holiday he found it necessary to get two jobs at the same time so as to make enough money to pay for his studies.

One summer he managed to get a job in a butcher's shop(肉店)during the day-time,and another in a hospital at night.In the shop,he learned to cut meat quite nicely,so the butcher often left him to do all the serving while he went to the back room to do the accounts.In the hospital,on the other hand,he was,of course,allowed to do the simplest jobs,like helping to lift people and to carry them from one part of the hospital to another.Both at the butcher's shop and at the hospital,Tom had to wear white clothes.

One evening at the hospital,Tom had to carry a woman from her bed to the place where she was to have an operation.The woman was already feeling frightened at the thought of the operation before he came to get her,but when she saw Tom,that finished her.
