Last night was the last game for my eight-year-old son’s soccer team. It was the final quarter. The score was two to one, my son’s team in the lead. Parents surrounded the playground, offering encouragement. With less than ten seconds remaining, the ball suddenly rolled in front of my son’s teammate, Mickey O’ Donnel. With shouts of “Kick it!” echoing across the playground, Mickey turned around and gave it everything he had. All around me the crowd erupted(轰动). O’Donnel had scored! Then ther e was silence. Mickey had scored all right, but in the wrong goal, ending the game in a tie. For a moment there was a total hush. You see, Mickey has Down syndrome （唐氏综合症）and for him there is no such thing as a wrong goal. All goals were celebrated by a joyous hug from Mickey. He had even been known to hug the opposing players when they scored. The silence was finally broken when Mickey, his face filled with joy, hugged my son tightly and shouted, “I scored! I scored! Everybody won! Everybody won!” For a moment I held my breath, not sure how my son would react. I need not have worried. I watched, through tears, as my son threw up his hand in the classic high-five salute （致礼）and started chanting, “Way to go Mickey! Way to go Mickey!” Within moments both teams surrounded Mickey, joining in the chant and congratulating him on his goal. Later that night, when my daughter asked who had won, I smiled as I replied, “It was a tie. Everybody won.” 21. Which is the most correct description of the author’s son? He was _________. A. brave A. cheer B. sympathetic B. laughter C. honest C. silence D. proud D. cry 22. The underlined word “hush” in Paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to “_________”. 23. Why did the author hold his breath when Mickey scored and hugged his son? A. Because his son might get angry with Mickey B. Because Mickey cheated everyone C. Because his son would accept the fact D. Because the score was out of his expectation 24. We can infer from the passage that Mickey_________ . A. was hated by his own team B. was excited when he realized the fault C. was warm-hearted and played soccer for both teams D. was cared about by his teammates B As more people use smart phones to pay bills and store personal information, strict password safety has become more important than ever. A new study shows that free-form gestures — sweeping fingers in shapes across the screen of a smart phone — can be used to unlock phones. These gestures are less likely to be observed and reproduced by others than traditional typed passwords. “All that it takes to steal a password is a quick eye,” said one of the
researchers of the study. “With all the personal information we have on our phones today, improving their safety is becoming increasingly necessary.” In developing a safe solution to this problem, the researchers studied the practicality of using free-form gestures. With the ability to create any shape in any size and location on the screen, the gestures were popular as passwords. Since users create them without following a template(标准), the researchers predicted these gestures would allow for greater complexity. The researchers carried out a create-test-retest experiment where 63 people were asked to create a gesture, recall it, and recall it again 10 days later. The gestures were captured(采集) on a recognizer system designed by the team. Using this data, they tested the complexity and accuracy of each gesture using information theory. The result of their analysis is that people are favorable to use free-form gestures as passwords. To put their analysis into practice, the researchers then had seven students in computer science and engineering, each with considerable experience with touchscreens （触摸屏）, attempt to steal a free-form gesture password by observing a phone user secretly. None of them were able to copy the gestures with enough accuracy. The gestures appear to be extremely powerful against attacks. Though the testing is in its early stage and widespread adaptation of this technology is not yet clear, the research team plans to continue to analyze the safety and management of free-form passwords in the future. They believe this is the first study to explore free-form gestures as passwords. They will soon publish their findings. 25. What can we learn about free-form gestures? A. They are improving mobile safety in a way. B. Users will have to ma ke use of simple gestures. C. They will never be copied by others. D. Users must move their fingers in fixed shapes. 26. The experiment in paragraph 4 is to test _________ of free-form gestures. A. template B. application C. accuracy D. safety 27. According to the text, the researchers think that ________. A. it is easy to steal any password with a quick eye B. better ways of setting passwords should be developed C. people had better not use smart phones to pay bills D. personal information should not be stored in a phone 28. The main purpose of the text is to ________. A. advise people to use free - form gestures B. discuss whether sma rt phones are safe C. talk about the practicality of passwords D. introduce the study of a new password C In modern society there is a great deal of argument a bout competition. Some value it highly, believing that it is responsible for social-progress and prosperity(繁 荣). Others say that competition is bad; that it sets one person against another;
that it leads to unfriendly relationship between people. I have taught many children who held the belief that their self-worth relied on how well they performed at tennis and other skills. For them, playing well and winning are often life-and-death affairs. In their single-minded pursuit of success, the development of many other human qualities is sadly forgotten. However, while some seem to be lost in the desire to succeed, others take an opposite attitude. In a culture which values only the winner and pays no attention to the ordinary players, they strongly blame competition. Among the most vocal are youngsters who have suffered under competitive pressures from their parents or society. Teaching these young people, I often observe in them a desire to fail. They seem to seek failure by not trying to win or achieve success. By not trying, they always have an excuse: "I may have lost, but it doesn't matter because I really didn't try." What is not usually admitted by themselves is the belief that if they had really tried and lost, that would mean a lot. Such a loss would be a measure of their worth. Clearly, this belief is the same as that of the true competitors who try to prove themselves. Both are based on the mistaken belief that one's self-respect relies on how well one performs in comparison with others. Both are afraid of not being valued. Only as this basic and often troublesome fear begins to dissolve (缓解) can we discover a new meaning in competition. 29. What does this text mainly talk about? A. Competition helps to set up self-respect. B. People hold different opinions about competition. C. Competition is harmful to personal quality development. D. Failures are necessary experience in competition. 30. Some people favor competition because they think it _________. A. pushes society forward B. builds up a sense of pride C. improves social abilities D. develops people's relationship 31. The underlined phrase “the most vocal” in Paragraph 3 refers to those who________. A. try their best to win B. highly value competition C. are strongly against competition D. mostly rely on others for success 32. Which viewpoint does the author agree to? A. Self-worth depends on winning. B. Competition leads to unfriendly relationship. C. Winning should be a life-and-death matter. D. Fear of failure should be removed in competition. 第二节 （共 5 小题，每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 根据短文内容， 从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项， 选项中有两项为多余选项。 请将答案写在答题卷上。

Now I’m writing to tell you something about it. First, to be a good journalist, you need to have fine qualities, such as a higher level of education and good communication skills. Being curious and having an active personality is also of vital importance. Above all, enthusiasm for the job and working hard is the key to success. Second, to be a good journalist, you need to keep a list of dos and don’ts in mind when covering a story. For example, don’t miss your deadline, don’t talk too much , but make sure you listen to the interviewee carefully. In order to acquire all the information you need to know, you need to prepare many different questions .Use research to assess when people are not telling the whole truth . If necessary, use a recorder to get the facts straight, which is the trick of the trade. Finally, making the news involves quite a few different jobs. So always work together well with other colleagues. Hope these might be of great help to you and wish you well. Yours,

听力原文： (Text 1) W: How long have you been a pilot? M: I’m not. I’ m a journalist. I’ve been writing about flying for seven years. (Text 2) W: Ever since I started living by myself, I’ve noticed that I often talk to myself. M: No need to be embarrassed about that. It’s actually very common. In fact, I do it myself. (Text 3) W: I wish that child would stop crying. M: Maybe she’s lost. She’s all alone. W: Alone? On a bus alone? M: I think we should go tell the bus driver. (Text4) W: Jack, shall I wear my blue blouse to the party tonight? M: Can’t you wear your red or your white blouse? They seem perfect for the occasion. W: But blue suits me better. (Text5) W: What’s your schedule like for the rest of the week? M: On Wednesday I’ve got a photo shoot for a sportswear ad. W: What about the next day? M: In the morning I’m recording my new single. Then in the evening, I’m performing at a concert. (Text6) M: Cherry Tree, you’re so gifted. Your new film is a big hit. W: But I feel terrible. M: Sorry? W: I hate being famous. It’s boring. I have to go to parties. I have to wear make-up all day. M: But you’re rich now. You can buy anything you want. W: Yes, but there are photographers everywhere. It seems that they are always looking around me. I can’t walk down the street. I can’t go shopping. I can’t have a private life. M: Well, why did you make the film?

M: No, I played football with some friends yesterday. Suddenly, I slipped on bannana skins and fell and broke my leg. W: I have something to tell you, but please don’t get angry with me. M: OK, I’ll try. W: I went to watch you play yesterday. I was eating bananas and couldn’t find a rubbish box for the skins. M: And you threw the skins onto the playing field? W: Well?I did. You slipped on the banana skins and fell. I’m sorry. M: Never mind. I won’t have to go to school, but I’ll miss the football practice. (Text8) W: Hi, Janson. Whast did you think of this afternoon’s study group? M: It really does help to study in a group.

Let us suppose we are introduced to someone at a party. One good first question would be to ask the person how he or she knows the host or hostess. If the person answers formally by calling you Mr or Ms, you could then say something like ‘please call

me Susan. This could immediately make the conversation more informal. In addition, if you are asked a question, try not to answer with only one or two words. Look the person in the eyes and stand close enough to show you are interested in what he or she is saying. Following this plan, you’ll probably soon find something you are both interested in, such as a recent movie or TV program, certain types of food or sports. Stay away from subjects that could cause arguments, such as political or religious topics. If the person is new to your town, you might like to introduce them to some of your other friends who are present. Anyhow, in a few minutes, both of you will feel much more relaxed and can enjoy each other’s company.
