Having good social relationships-friends, marriage or children-may be every bit asimportant to a healthy life as quitting smoking, losing weight or taking certain medicines, U.S. researchers reported on Tuesday. People with strong social relationships were 50 percent less likely to die early than people without such support, the team at Brigham Young University in Utah found. They suggest that the government look at ways to help people keep social relationships as a way of keeping the population healthy. "A lack of social relationships was equal to smoking up t0 15 cigarettes a day," psychologist Julianne Holt-Lunstad, who led the study, said in a telephone interview. Her team conducted a study that examined social relationships and their effects on health. They looked at 148 studies that covered more than 308,000 people, published in the Public Library of Science journal PLoS Medicine at www. plosmedicine. org. Having Iow levels of social relationships was equal to being an alcoholic, was more harmful than not exercising and was twice as harmful as obesity. Social relationships had a bigger effect on early death than getting an injection to prevent pneumoniac（肺炎) , than taking drugs for high blood pressure and far more important than living in air pollution, they found. "I certainly don't want to downplay these other risk factors because of course they are very important," Holt-Lunstad~B-. rrWe need to start taking social relationships just as seriously. " But Holt-Lundstad said there was some evidence that assignjng caretakers(陪护人员) does not help improve people's health. "Naturally occurring relationships may be different than the support received from someone who is hired for that purpose, " she said. 60. According to the text, having poor social relationships is as harmful as_________. A. being fat B. staying up C. not doing sports D. drinking alcohol 61. The underlined word in the last paragraph is the closest in meaning to "__________". A. stress B. orove C. iznore D. consider 62. What conclusion can we draw from the text? A. The support from hired caretakers is more natural. B. The love from our family members has better effect. C. Air pollution does more harm to people than poor social relationships. D. Poor social relationships are the biggest reason for people's early death. 63. What would be the best title for this text? A. Good social relationships improve our health B. Risks factors that lead to people's early death C. The importance of building good relationships D. Advice on how to avoid early death and keep healthy C On a flight from Johannesburg, a middle-aged, well-off white South African Lady found herself sitting next to a black man. She called the stewardess(女乘务员)over to complain about her seat. "What seems to be the problem, Madam?" asked the stewardess. "Can't you see?" she said "You've sat me next to a black man. I can't possibly sit next to this disgusting(今人厌恶的) man. Find me another seat ! " "Please calm down, Madam. " the stewardess replied. "The flight is very full today, but I'II tell you what I'II do-l'Il go and check to see if we have any seats available in the club or first class. "

A few minutes later the stewardess returned with the good news, which she delivered to the lady, "Madam, unfortunately, as I suspected, economy is full. I've spoken to the cabin services director, and the club is also full. However, we do have one seat in first class". Before the lady. had a chance to answer9 the stewardess continued... "It is most extraordinary to make this kind of upgrade, however, and I have had to get special permission from the captain. But the captain felt that it was painful that someone be forced to sit next to such a terrible person. " With which, she turned to the black man sitting next to her, and said, "So if you'd like to get your things, sir, I have your seat ready for you. " At which point, obviously the surrounding passengers stood and gave a standi7rg ovation(热烈鼓 掌)while the black guy walks up to the front of the plane. Remember everyone is as equal human being as you are. Treat everyone with love andrespect. 64. What was the lady's problem? A. She wanted a seat in the club. B. She wanted a seat in first class. C. She didn't like to sit beside the black man. D. She wasn't satisfied with the service on the plane. 65. What's the captain's attitude towards the lady? A. He felt sorry for her. B. He felt angry with her. C. He felt puzzled about her. D. He understood her behavior. 66. What's the end of the story? A. The lady got a seat in first class. B. The black man got a seat in first class. C. The stewardess apologized to the lady. D. The lady felt satisfied with the solution. 67. The story intends to tell us that A. we should be kind to each ot~er B. we shouldn't make fun of others C. we should treat everyone equally D. we should meet other people's needs D A new study calculates that by 2020, average temperatures across much of the planet will rise to levels higher than we've ever seen in recent history. The hPat waVPs of t-oday c ould seem like a b reeze in the future, thanks to climate change. One of the biggest challenges about reporting on climate change is scale. An example: theworld has come to agree that we should work to keep global temperatures from rising morethan 3. 6 F (2oC) above levels that were normal before we began pumping carbon dioxide intothe atmosphere in the 19th century, as Temperatures have already risen by about 1oF. Butwhat does a 3. 6-F change really mean to the average person? On Wednesday in New YorkCity, the temperature ranged between 20'F and 66 F , and it felt like a completely normal day. In fact, it was almost exactly average-historically temperatures in New York City on Oct. 9 have ranged between 18-F and 63-F. If we're accustomed to handling much bigger temperature variations on an average autumn day-let alone the weather changes from summer to winter-it shouldn't be hard to adapt to a climate in which the average temperature is just 3 F or so warmer than average, right? Wrong. As an important new study published in Nature shows, even what seems like a small increase in the average air temperature could have a major effect on the planet and on our well being. After analyzing data from existing climate models, researchers from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, led by the geographer Camilo Mora, calculated that by 2020, plus or minus five years, the average temperatures in each year will be hotter across most ofthe planet than they had been at those places in

any year between 1860 and 2005, the period for which scientists have the most reliable records. 68. Why will average temperatures rise much higher in the future? A. Because mankind has been affecting the environment. B. Because the atmosphere began to change in the 19th century. C. Because countries have been trying to control climate change. D. Because the heat waves of today may be like a breeze in the future. 69. According to the passage, the new study _ . A. is carried out by Camilo Mora since 2005 B. is in the charge of the scientific magazine Nature C. is supported by climate data since the 18th century D. helps remind and correct some common wrong ideas 70. According to the new study, around 2020 people will _ A. adapt to climate change easily B. face a harder living environment C. benefit from the rising of temperature D. suffer from the highest temperature in history 71. What can we infer from the passage? A. The situation referred to will never happen. B. In 2020 the earth will not be suitable for human beings. C. Government will succeed in bringing down the air temperature. D. Cold years around 2020 could be hotter than the hottest years now. E The announcement to award the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games to the city of Rio de Janeiro was made by the IOC President Jacques Rogge, on 2d October 2009 in Copenhagen. It marked the beginning of a journey of big opportunities and challenges for Rio, and for Brazil. There will be more than 100, 000 people directly involved in the organisation of the Games, including 70, 000 volunteers. More than 10, 500 athletes from about 205 nations around the world are expected to come to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, to compete in front of many thousands of media professionals, sports fans and tourists from all over the globe. Walking in the streets of Rio feels like going back in the history of Brazil. In January 1502, the second exploratory expedition of the Portuguese, led by a captain by the name of Gaspar Lemos, reached Guanabara Bay. It is legend that he caught sight of what he thought that was a river, so he eventually named it Rio de Janeiro ("River of January"). But it was not until 1565 that Estacio de Sa established the city which he named Sao Sebastiao do Rio de Janeiro, in honour of the King of Portugal, Dom Sebastiao. In 1763 Rio de Janeiro became the capital of the Brazilian Empire. There was a military coup(政变)in 1889 that made Brazil into a republic under Marshal Deodoro da Fonseca, who ousted(罢免) the emperor and took over the country. With the Proclamation of the Republic in 1889, the capital of the Empire became the federal capital of Brazil. In 1920, the first Brazilian university-URJ, Universidade Rio de Janeiro was founded in Rio. Rio remained the capital of the Republic until Brasilia was inaugurated(开始) in 1960. 72. Rio de Janeiro has to prepare for the 2016 Olympic Games about ______ years. A.4 B. 5 C.6 D. 7 73. Some numbers are given in Para. 2 to _________ .

We are conditioned to want to be richerP we are trained to want the latest style that television tells us; we want to earn more money because then we'll have a good life. But none of those will make us happier. And the sad thing is that it can take us decades of pursuing （追求） wealth and expensive things before we realize that. So what will bring us happiness? Luckily, there are three things that don't cost anything. Here they are: Good relationships. Having good, supportive friendships, a strong marriage or loving relationships with our family members will make us much more likely to be happy. Therefore, take time, today, to stay with your loved ones, to tell them what they mean to you, to listen to them, and to develop your relationships with them. Positive thinking. Optimism is one of the best indicators of people who lead a happy life. Happy people feel they can control their lives. So why not make positive thinking a habit? In fact, this should be one of the first habits you develop. Flow. This is a popular concept on the Internet these days-the state we enter when we are completely focused on the work or task. Having work and leisure ( Hc BJ) that gets you in this state of flow will almost undoubtedly lead to happiness. People find the greatest enjoyment not when they're passively mindless, but when they're absorbed in a mindful challenge. If you are interested in some kind of work and keen on some kind of hobbies, it is no't a bad idea. Turn off the TV-this is the opposite of flow-and then go outside and do something that truly makes you active。 Title Some people's(77) _______ (78)___________ The Secret to (76)_______ If we were richer, we would have a happier time.
