The car was found at about 5 pm Saturday off Route 125 in a swampy area frequented by off-the-road cars and dirt bikes. However, the police couldn’t control Benjerman， they had and to call Atkins to come and get him. Atkins said the thief cared for Benjerman a little by providing him with some dry cat food. She believed Benjerman ended up drinking some muddy water in the area. She said they have been together for nearly 11 years after she took him back from a society shelter in Dallas, Texas. Before Benjerman was found，Atkins and several friends put up notices all over the city and in Somersworth. They also contacted animal shelters ， throughout southern New Hampshire and Massachusetts.

B Wugging, or web use giving, describes the act of giving to charity at no cost to the user．By using Everyclick.com, which is being added to a number of university computers across the UK, students can raise money every time they search, but it won’t cost them a penny. Research shows that students are extremely passionate about supporting charity — 88% of full time students have used the Internet to give to charity．This age group is often the least likely to have their own income． 19% of 22 to 24 year olds have short-term debts of more than ? 5,000．With rising personal debt levels in this age group, due to university tuition fees or personal loans and a lack of long-term savings, traditional methods of donating to charity are often not appealing or possible. Beth Truman, a 21-year-old recent university graduate, has used Everyclick.com to donate to her chosen charity, the RSPCA, for two years and has seen the ―wugging‖ movement grow in popularity with students． ―When you’re at university you become more socially aware, but it’s sometimes hard to give to others when you have little money yourself,‖ says Beth． ―Wugging is great for people in this age group as it allows them to use the technology on a daily basis to give to charity, without costing them a single penny.‖ Wugging is perfect for people who want to be more socially aware and supportive but don’t feel they have the means to do so．Students using the web can raise money for causes they care about without costing them anything in terms of time or money, and charities get a valuable source of funding． Everyclick.com works like any other search engine, allowing users to search for information, news and images but users can decide which of the UK’s 170,000 charities they would like to support through their clicks．Everyclick.com then makes monthly payments to every registered charity．Launched in June 2005, Everyclick.com is now the eighth largest search engine and one of the busiest charity websites in the UK. 60. According to the passage, ―wugging‖ is actually ______. A. a website B. a charity-related action
C. a school organization
D. a student movement
61. In the case of charity, Everyclick.com ______ A. frees students from the financial worries when they give to charity. B. receives much money from students to make payments to registered charity. C. offers valuable information to students as one of the largest search engine. D. praises students for their money-raising at the website. 62. What does Beth Truman think of the ―wugging‖ movement? A. It makes Everyclick.com popular in the UK. B. It becomes easy to do charity because of it. C. It results in students’ more social awareness. D. It helps students to save money. 63. What would be the best title for this passage? A. ―Wugging‖, a new popular term on the Internet. B. British people show strong interest in charity. C. More Britain charities benefit from the Internet. D. Students raise money for charity by ―wugging‖. C Every year Chris Brogan posts his three words for a new year. I and many other people have followed his lead for the past three or four years. They helped me a lot. My words for last year were ―passion‖，―focus‖ and ―delegate‖ and I stayed true to them. This year，2012，my goals are more personal and less professional. FOCUS Focus is making a repeat appearance on my list this year because I’m too much of a multitasker. The problem is that I have trouble finishing one thing with so many things calling me. When I was working as a writer，all my projects were handled via a schedule，which kept me organized. This year I’m going to have each task scheduled. I’m putting a fitness and housekeeping routine into my schedule. HEALTH
I get so busy taking care of everyone else，I forget to take care of myself and this has to change. My health suffers and my weight suffers. I have to get my health in check，not only for me-but because I promised my 9 year-old son. I’11 make sure to take time to exercise every day and make good food and lifestyle choices. I miss being thin，and it’s time to get it back. CELEBRATE What good is having it all if I’m not taking time to enjoy it？I have a wonderful job，a happy family， so much to be thankful for. So how come I spend all my time working? Last and summer my family took our first vacation in four years，the best thing I’ve done for myself and my family in a long time. This year，I’m making sure to take time to enjoy life and celebrate its many blessings. Do you have any words for 2012？ 64. The underlined word ―multitasker" probably refers to a person who________ A. makes a living by writing B. always fails to finish a task on time C. has several things to do at the same time D. pays more attention to fitness and housekeeping 65. Why does the writer have ―health‖ as one of his three words？ A. He wants to take better care of others. B. He’s gaining weight and feeling bad. C. He did not take any exercise in the past. D. He got the idea from his son. 66. What can we learn from the passage？ A .The word ―celebrate‖ can remind the writer to enjoy life. B. The writer has a vacation with his family every four years. C. The word ―focus‖ can help the writer focus on his family. D. The writer used to be overweight for lack of exercise. 67. The best title for the passage might be________·
A. Three Words for 2012 C. Keep Organized
B. Health Should Go First D. Goals for 2012 D

Health and climate scientists have mapped how climate change affects different parts of the world in different ways. The scientists point to evidence that changes in the past thirty years may already be affecting human health. Temperature changes may also influence the spread of disease. For example, warmer weather speeds the growth of organisms that cause diseases like malaria and dengue fever. The work by scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the World Health Organization appeared in the journal Nature. Jonathan Patz, professor of the Gaylord Nelson Institute, led the study. He notes that climate scientists linked global warming to the heat that killed thousands in Europe in August of 2003. He says poor countries are least responsible for the warming yet are most at risk from the health effects of higher temperatures. He says areas at greatest risk include Southern and Eastern Africa and coastlines along the Pacific and Indian Oceans. Also, large cities experience what scientists call a ―heat island‖ effect that can intensify conditions. Professor Patz says average temperatures worldwide have increased about one-third of a degree Celsius in the last thirty years. But he tells us even that can make a difference with a disease like malaria. The report says average temperatures could increase by as much as six degrees Celsius by the end of the century. Representatives from about two hundred nations have been meeting in Montreal, Canada, to discuss climate change. The ten-day conference ends December 9th. It is the first such United Nations meeting since the Kyoto Protocol took effect earlier this year. The protocol seeks to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases released as pollution into the air. 72. The text mainly talks about _________. A. the spread of malaria C. a ten-day conference in Montreal B. effects of human activities on climate D. health effects caused by climate change
73. Which of the following is NOT TRUE according to the text? A. Some diseases spread faster in hot weather. B. Human activities contribute to the climate change.
C. Poor countries suffer least from the effects of higher temperatures. D. Even a slight change in temperature may affect the spread of some diseases. 74. The underlined word ―intensify‖ in Paragraph 2 is closest in meaning to _______. A. strengthen B. prevent C. lessen D. reflect
75. According to the text, the Kyoto Protocol aims at __________. A. limiting the release of greenhouse gases B. preventing the spread of malaria and dengue fever C. studying how climate change affect human health D. organizing representatives to meet regularly in Montreal 第二卷 （计分:35 分） 注意：本卷答案一律写在答题纸上，请看清题号作答。 ．．．．．． V. 阅读填空题。 阅读下面短文，根据以下要求：1）汉语提示；2）首字母提示；3）语境提示, 在每 个空格内填入一个适当的英语单词，所填单词要求意义准确、拼写正确。 （每题 1 分；共 10 分） It was an honor to have been selected to go on a study tour to Britain.
