I had three small kids and the 36 of waking up in the morning 37 rested, instead of having my eyes opened by tiny fingers, was quite 38 . Oh, the beauty of dinnertime without spilled milk, a house without sounds of 39 , and walls without sticky fingerprints. I could 40 a shopping cart(手推车) that was filled with groceries instead of children! However, when I 41 that sought-after goal, it was rather a 42 . It no longer looked attractive because these years had 43 the distasteful parts of motherhood. For some time, no one had been crying to be 44 in the middle of the night. 45 needed to be dressed or have their shoes tied ten times a day. Just when the children became pleasant 46 , they moved out. Is there no justice? I tried not to look into the three empty bedrooms as I passed by them. School books, papers, and toys had all 47 . When I finally moved out of my depression, I 48 my dear husband, Jack, looking almost the same as when I had fallen 49 in love with him. Except for showing a bit of 50 , the years had been good to him. I caught myself 51 when I realized the creases(皱纹) on his face were smile lines, not 52

wrinkles. Well my nest was not empty after all. It still 53 the one special person I had chosen to share my life with. In the quiet of the empty nest, it might be 54 for us to find each other.

My job is stable but not well-paid, interesting but not challenging, relaxing but not what I want. There?s nothing about the job I am proud of, except that I can be the interpreter for the vice mayor sometimes. But is it a big deal? No, I don?t think so! There are now two options in front of me. I can either choose to stay in government or leave for foreign companies. I asked Amanda for advice, who suggested me to stay still in the government, and my parents also asked me to be patient! But my mind is totally blank now, and I don?t know which to choose. I?m confused! Neither option is convincing, in terms of payment and long-term improvement. Working for the government will give me a stable career life. I won?t need to worry about my sales targets and whatever insurance. But I will never be rich again! Working for a foreign company will bring good salaries and bonus to me. But I will be under great pressure to achieve whatever goals made by the company! I?m no longer a young salesman. My confidence is no longer as strong as before! God, it?s so hard to make the decision! 56. Who is responsible for this situation? A. Amanda. B. Maggie. C. The author ?s parents. D. The author himself. 57. What does the author think of his present job? A. Highly paid and stable. B. Steady and relaxing. C. Challenging and interesting. D. Busy and difficult. 58. The thing that bothers the author most about working for a foreign company is that______. A. he will not be rich again B. he will no longer be a salesman C. he will be under huge pressure D. he will have to make the decision 59. What?s the author ?s attitude towards his decision? A. Determined. B. Optimistic C. Uncertain. D. Contented. B Britons abandon “thank you” in favor of “cheers”. They are the two magic words which for generations have been the cornerstone of good manners. But research suggests today?s Britons are no longer capable of saying “thank you” when showing gratitude. Instead, “cheers” has overtaken the expression to become the most popular phrase to present thanks. Forty percent of those polled said they believe saying “thank you” sounds too formal, and would rather use colloquial terms like “fab”, “lovely” or “wicked”. Almost half of those polled(投票) said they now use “cheers” more often than “thank you”, while other popular phrases include “ta”, “cool”, and “great”. A third said they would often just resort to a quick wave instead of saying “thank you”. Caroline Weaver from the gift company Me to You, which conducted the poll of 3, 000 people, said: “While the Great British public might feel uncomfortable saying thank you these days, they do like to show their gratitude in other ways. Respondents felt it didn?t matter how you thanked someone for their kind actions, as long as you did so in a friendly and polite way. At the end of the day everyone knows that a big smile and some form of acknowledgement is all it takes to show we are grateful.”

It?s been too long for me to live in the shadow created by myself! Darkness has taken me but fortunately, I finally woke up and decided to make my way out.

It?s my own choicer Had I not come back from Singapore, not decided to leave FX, not divorced with Maggie, I would not have met you! There are too many things, which are not supposed to happen, but happened to me!

The study found “lovely”, “nice one”, “much appreciated”, “you star”, and “all right” are also used regularly in place of “thank you”. Even foreign words such as “merci”, “dance” and “gracias” have become more popular than the traditional expression of thanks. However, despite the trend towards more informed language, two thirds of people described Britain as a “rude” nation and 84 percent think people should make more of an effort to show appreciation. 60. The underlined word “acknowledgement” in the passage most probably means______. A. knowledge B. action C. movement D. recognition 61. The reason why some Britons abandon “Thank you” is that______.

C The tragic death of celebrity(名人) Wang Bei has made people aware of the risks of cosmetic surgery(整 容手术) , which is becoming increasingly popular. It seems the aspiring singer Wang Bei has finally achieved the fame that escaped her during her lifetime. Denny Chen, a 27-year-old Beijing hairdresser, dropped his plans for surgery because of the news. “I?m afraid the same thing might happen to me, so I?ve decided to forget it,” he says. A common topic of online discussion is why someone considered beautiful was so dissatisfied with her looks. Some netizens said Wang was a victim of society?s unrealistic ideal of beauty. Others said her death underlines the limits to which people will go to achieve fame and fortune. Wang?s death highlights the fact that cosmetic surgery has become one of China?s biggest beauty secrets. Last year an estimated 15 billion yuan($2.2 billion) was spent on cosmetic surgery and the figure is expected to rise 20 percent annually, a China Central Television report concluded. A recent survey shows, as wealth expands and celebrity culture takes an even firmer hold, people are becoming more conscious of their looks and are willing to go to great lengths to improve them. Meanwhile, young people see cosmetic surgery as the key to wealth and love. “They want to improve their appearance to find better opportunities at work and in marriage, we?re living in a highly competitive society. People regard appearance as a weapon. Most of them tell me, ?I don?t care how much I spend, just make me look beautiful?.” said Ding Xiaobang, a plastic surgeon with the Peking Union Medical College Hospital. Some professors from colleges think young and beautiful people need to handle their self-awareness issues and be more accepting.
“They?ve built their identity around the admiration of others and fail to establish a system to assess themselves,” says Zhu Wenbo, a psychologist with Blue Bay Psychological Consulting Caiter in Chengdu. “People?s opinions always change, so this is not a reliable way to evaluate oneself.” 64. The death of the singer Wang Bei mentioned in Paragraph one is to______. A. provide back ground in formation of the topic B. attract readers? attention to the topic C. use an example to support the topic D. offer basic knowledge of the topic 65. Which of the following is the author most probably in favor of? A. Celebrity culture has nothing to do with the rising of cosmetic surgery. B. Some young people consider cosmetic surgery helps them get wealth and love. C. Most Chinese would like to do cosmetic surgery. D. Doing cosmetic surgery is a reliable way to improve oneself. 66. This article is mainly developed by______. A. providing data B. pointing out similarities and differences C. stating opinions from different fields D. presenting a cause and analyzing its effects 67. Which would be the best title of the passage? A. The Story of a Singer. B. Beauty and Death. C. Beauty Has an Ugly Side. D. Beauty and Wealth. D Illinois-Wildlife officials discovered a single Asian carp(鲤鱼) Thursday in a canal leading to Lake Michigan, which indicated the destructive species might come to the Great Lakes, Illinois environmental officials said. Environmentalists fear that if the Asian carp reached the lakes they could starve out native fish species and put a $7 billion-a-year fishing industry at stake. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials found the only 22-inch young carp among tens of thousands of dead fish in a fish kill operation in the canal, about 40 miles from Lake Michigan. “Asian carps are indeed knocking on the door of the Great Lakes. This is the closest to Lake Michigan that an actual Asian carp body has been found,” said John Rogner, assistant director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Tens of thousands of other species of fish, from gizzard shad to drum, floated to the surface of the waterway Thursday after authorities dumped more than 2, 000 gallons of toxins(毒素) into a nearly six-mile stretch of the waterway the evening before. The toxins were dumped while an electrical barrier normally used to prevent any Asian carp from the Great Lakes was turned off for maintenance. The kill operation which will require the removal. of an estimated 200, 000 pounds of dead fish to a landfill began Wednesday and was expected to last until Saturday. The Asian carp which can grow to 4 feet were imported by Southern fish farms but escaped into the Mississippi River in large numbers during flooding in the 1990s and have been making their way northward ever since.

E One of the world?s great natural wonders is in New Mexico, in the American Southwest. Nature has created huge moving hills of pure white sand. These sand dunes cover more than seventy-thousand hectares of desert. It is one of the largest sand dune fields in the United States. The bright white sand dunes are always changing, always moving, like waves on the ocean. Driven by strong winds, the sand moves and covers everything in its path. It is like a huge sea of sand. You may wonder how anything can live in this extreme environment of a white sand desert. There is not much rain. The heat in summer is intense. The sand lacks nutrients. Plants and animals struggle to survive. A few kinds of plants grow quickly to survive burial by the moving sand dunes. Several kinds of small animals have become white in color in order to hide in the sand. More than five hundred thousand people visit White Sands each year. They climb on the dunes and observe the moving sea of sand. White Sands is about twenty four kilometers southeast of the city of Alamogordo, New Macico. In the visitor center at the entrance of the park, you can find out about special activities and guided walks. You can drive about thirteen kilometers into the center of the dunes. It is like driving on a lonely white planet. Along the
way there is information that tells about the natural history of the white sands. You can also explore the dunes on foot, seeing some unusual and beautiful plants and flowers. Signs along the trail tell about the plants growing in the sand. You can even camp there over night. But you must be careful. It is easy to get lost in the waves of moving sand especially during sandstorms. There is no water to drink. The temperature can rise to thirty-eight degrees Celsius in summer. There is no shelter from the sun?s rays. White Sands is part of America?s National Parks System, and it is just one of the unusual examples of America?s natural and cultural treasures. 72.
