It was said that when the
Portuguese people first came here in the middle of sixteenth century, one of the officers asked a fisherman the name of the land. The man misunderstood the officer’s question, and answered ―Magao‖ – the name of A-Ma Temple in front them. Many people wonder how Macau is spelled. Is it ―Macao‖ or ―Macau‖? Both are actually correct. Macao is Portuguese, and this is the official spelling backed by Macau SAR Government. Macau is English, that’s how they spell it in the U.S. and other parts of the world. However, most publications use ―Macau‖ as the preferred spelling. Members of the Southern Song Dynasty and some 50,000 followers were the first recorded inhabitants (居民) of the area, seeking shelter in Macau from invading Mongols in 1277. They were able to defend their settlements and establish themselves there. The Hoklo Boat people were the first to show commercial interest in Macau as a trading center for the southern provinces. During the Ming Dynasty (1368–1643), fishermen migrated to Macau from various parts of Guangdong and Fujian provinces and built the A-Ma Temple in which they prayed for safety on the sea. Chinese fishermen have been living and working in the Pearl River Delta for more than four thousand years. The small peninsula and islands that came to be called Macau were first settled by the Portuguese in the sixteenth century. In 1998, Chinese (Cantonese) was given official status and the same legal p ower as Portuguese, the official language. The Chinese government assumed sovereignty over Macau on December 20, 1999, ending 329 years of Portuguese rule. 1. We can learn from the text that the name ―Macau‖_________. A. is named after a sea goddess B. is first called by the Portuguese C. is only used in publications D. is given by a fisherman 2. Which is the correct order of the things that happened in Macau? a. Portuguese people first came to Macau. b. The fishermen of Guangdong and Fujian migrated to Macau. c. The first recorded inhabitants established themselves in Macau. d. the A-Ma Temple was built in Macau. A. c, b, d, a B. d, c, b, a C. b, c, a, d D. a, c, b, d 3. Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage? A. Both Chinese and Portuguese are official languages in Macau. B. The A-Ma Temple was built in honour of a holy sea goddess. C. The inhabitants in Macau mainly made their living by fishing before the 16th century. D. Macau didn’t belong to China until December 20, 1999. 4. Members of the Southern Song Dynasty went to Macau in order to ____. A. show commercial interest in Macau B. find a good place for fishing C. get away from their enemies D. establish Macau SAR there B With many college graduates struggling to find jobs, one of the most important for you to understand is that you're in school all your life. In fact, your real education is just beginning. I'd like to pass on a few lessons that you didn't necessarily get in school. If you've been out of school for a few years or a lot of years, they could still teach you something.
· Develop relationships and keep networking, if I had to name a single characteristic shared by all the truly successful people I've met, I'd say it is the ability to create and nurture (培育) networks of contacts. Start strengthening your relationships now, so that they'll be in place when you really need them later. In the classroom it was mostly about individual performance. Success in real life requires relationships. ·Set goals. Ask any winner what the key to his or her success was, and you'll hear four consistent messages: vision, determination, persistence, and setting goals. If you don't set goals and determine where you're going, how will you know when you get there? Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an incentive (激励)to keep you going all day. · Sense of humor. I'm a firm believer in using humor, though not necessarily jokes. A good sense of humor helps one understand the unconventional(非传统的), tolerate the unpleasant, and overcome the unexpected. There are plenty of times to be serious, but I believe that keeping things light and comfortable encourages better teamwork. · Volunteer. It might be hard to do a lot of volunteer work at first, but people who help others on a regular basis have a healthier outlook on life. 1. By saying "your real education is just beginning", the author wants to A. explain why it's difficult for college graduates to find jobs B. show the importance of social experience, besides schooling, in education C. advise students to value their time at school, and to study hard D. advise college graduate s to face bravely the problems they may encounter (遭遇) 2.You should start to strengthen your relationships now because______. A. it will take you time to develop them before you need them B. you may have gotten used to being judged as an individual, and need to change C. successful people have no time to develop relationships with you D. you need to spend a lot of time learning the importance of good relationships 3. The author believes that being humorous means that you_______. A. should prepare jokes to be used in various situations B. can deal with difficult situations in an easy and comfortable way C. can show your difference from others and be able to succeed D. should smile all the time and avoid being serious on any occasion 4. The target readers of this passage are probably_______. A. educational experts B. people who want to change jobs C. college graduates who have just left school D. high school students who are still at school C There is one type of illness in the world that affects more people than anything else and is very deadly. If untreated this illness could affect everything you do. What is this illness? Depression. Serious depression requires professional treatment. Self-induced depression is something each of us can change. Everyone's circumstances are different, but the causes of self-induced depression are common: low self-esteem, hurtful thinking and a bad attitude.
So how can we change the way we think, feel, and cultivate a cheerful attitude? First we must look at ourselves, truly and honestly examining our motives for what we wish to achieve. If you are dissatisfied because you feel you haven't or can't do anything, then one step is needed - to set goals. Always start your goals relatively small and easy to attain. Think of them as sand; one grain may be insignificant but as a group they form the beach. Once you have set and attained small goals for yourself, move on to slightly larger, more challenging goals. It takes more than just setting goals to be happy. It takes positive thinking. How can we attain this? There are a number of factors that can make us think negatively and one of those is diet. In my opinion, a person who eats a lot of take out and fast food is feeding their body junk. Start by eating better foods which give the body much NEEDED minerals. If your physical body is happy, it's much easier for your mental body or "thinking ability" to be happy. Next, exercise. A half-hour a day is recommended for positive well being. Then think about good memories you had, or generally think of things that make you smile. Remember, everything you wear costs money but to wear a smile is free. A smile can be the difference between an average day and a great day. If you follow these steps, positive change is inevitable. 1．Which of the statements about depression is TRUE? Depression is a kind of illness that can’t be cured like some cancer. Depression can all be cured successfully by patients themselves. Those who suffer from depression feel dissatisfied with themselves. Those who suffer from depression live in similar circumstances. 2．According to the passage we can learn that ____________. a practical goal can help people to achieve a sense of success we shouldn’t be satisfied with small goals that are insignificant we should avoid challenging goals that may lead to failure people can enjoy happiness only if they set reasonable goals 3．In order to achieve positive thinking a person should do these things EXCEPT________. A. set challenging goals B. eat healthier foods C. exercise half an hour a day D. always wear a smile 4．What’s the passage mainly about? A. To prove the argument that depression can be changed. B. To analyze the danger depression can bring to people. C. To introduce to readers how to keep positive thinking. D. To recommend some ways to deal with depression. D Modern man has cleared the forests for farmland and for wood, and has also carelessly burned them. More than that, though, he has also interfered （干涉） with the invisible bonds between the living things in the forests. There are many examples of this kind of destruction. The harmfulness of man’s interference can be seen in what happened many years ago in the forest of the Kaibab plateau （凯亚巴布高原） of northern Arizona. Man tried to improve on the natural
web of forest life and destroyed it instead. The Kaibab had a storybook forest of large sized pine, Douglas fir, white fir, blue and Engelmann spruce. In 1882 a visitor noted, "We, who ... have wandered through its forests and parks, have come to regard it as the most enchanting region it has ever been our privilege （特权） to visit.‖This was also the living place of the Rocky Mountain mule deer. Indians hunted there every autumn to gather meat and skins. The forest also had mountain lions, timber wolves and bobcats that kept the deer from multiplying too rapidly. Then, in 1906, President Theodore Roosevelt made the Kaibab a national game preserve. Deer hunting was forbidden. Government hunters started killing off the deer’s enemies. In 25 years’ time, 6,250 mountain lions, wolves and bobcats were killed. Before the program, there were about 4,000 deer in the Kaibab, by 1924, there were about 100,000. The deer ate every leaf and twig they could reach. But there was not nearly enough food. Hunting of deer was permitted again. This caused a slight decrease in the deer herd （鹿群） but a ， far greater loss resulted from starvation （饥饿） and disease. Some 60 percent of the deer herd died in two winters. By 1930 the herd had dropped to 20,000 animals. By 1942 it was down to 8,000. 1． The destruction of the environment of the Kaibab resulted from . A. turning the forest into cultivated land B. interfering with natural cycle of forest life C. forest fires caused by man’s carelessness D. cutting the trees for building materials 2．"Engelmann spruce"（Para. 2） is most likely the name of . A.a tree B.an animal C.a mountain D.a game 3．The number of the deer in the Kaibab had increased enormously in years’ time. A.25 B.6 C.18 D.12 4． Years later, large numbers of deer in the Kaibab died mainly because of . A. the cold B.the organized kill C.the shortage of food D.the poor management
