A A woman was in a hurry to go to the airport. She told the cab driver to drive quickly. She was so absorbed in her own thoughts that she was not aware they were going by a different route. Suddenly, a man got inside the cab. He took her handbag where she had placed her visa, passport, and all her money for the trip. The driver, who was in cahoots with the robber, left her in the middle of that dark street. She cursed the world for being so mean to her, and thought how unlucky she was in that situation. That very same night, she heard some shocking news. Tears flowed down her face. Flight 230, which was the plane that she was supposed to have boarded, had crashed. If she had not
lost her precious belongings, she could have lost something far more important------her life. Sometimes bad things really happen. There are times when nothing seems to go our way. So what should we do about it? We must get rid of all these frustrations and start all over again in the faith that we will get what we deserve. Don’t waste your time and energy on things that can’t be changed. Continuous worrying will only affect your health and you’ll be doing much more damage than what was previously done. What if it was the other way round? What if we never ran out of good luck? There was a man who won the lottery. He became greedy and wasted all his money on everything he could get his hands on. But when he one day made it to the front page of the newspaper again, it was a different story. He had been killed because of his riches. If you attain good luck, you can never be too secure about it. Life is so unpredictable. You never know what will happen next. Live one day at a time. We sometimes subject ourselves to unnecessary emotional trouble. Live for the moment. Do what must be done for the present and the future will turn out just fine. Believe me. And believe in yourself. As Captain Planet always says, ―The power is yours！‖ 56. The underlined phrase ―in cahoots with‖ in Paragraph 3 probably means ―______.‖ A. was forced by B. was fighting bravely with C. had cooperated with D. was trying to beg 57. From the passage, we learn that ________. A. the woman was lucky to miss her flight B. some people just never run out of good luck C. robbers will get what they deserve D. if you feel yourself lucky, you will continue to be so 58. According to the author, which of the following is the right attitude to adopt towards life? A. Don’t waste your time and energy because time is limited. B. There’s no need to worry or get frustrated. Just believe in yourself. C. Even when everything seems to be going well, we should keep fully alert. D. Worrying about what you don’t have means you miss out on opportunities for other things. 59. The stories are intended to tell us _______.

Art is considered by many people to be no more than a decorative means of giving pleasure. This is not always the case, however, at times, art may be seen to have a purely functional side as well. Such could be said of the sandpaintings of the Navaho Indians of the American Southwest; these have a medicinal as well as an artistic purpose. According to Navaho traditions, one who suffers from either a mental or a physical illness has in some way disturbed or get in touch with the supernatural----perhaps a certain animal, a ghost, or the dead. To break away from this, the ill person or one of his relatives will employ a medical man called a ―singer‖ to perform a curing ceremony which will attract a powerful supernatural being. During the ceremony, which may last from 2 to 9 days, the ―singer‖ will produce a sandpainting on the floor. On the last day of the ceremony, the patient will sit on this sandpainting and the ―singer‖ will rub the sick or injured parts of the patient’s body with sand from a specific figure in the sandpainting. In this way the patient absorbs the power of that particular supernatural being and becomes strong. After the ceremony, the sandpainting is destroyed so its power won’t harm anyone. The art of sandpainting is handed down from old ―singers‖. The materials used are easily found where the Navaho settle: brown, red, yellow, and white sandstone, which is ground(研 磨) much as corn is made into flour. The ―singer‖ holds a small amount of this sand in his hand and lets it flow between his fingers onto a clean, flat surface on the floor, with a steady hand and great patience. He is thus able to create designs of stylized people, snakes and other creatures that have power in the Navaho belief system. The traditional Navaho doesn’t allow copying sandpaintings, since he believes the supernatural powers that taught him the craft have forbidden this; however, such reproductions can in fact be purchased today in tourist shops in Arizona and New Mexico. These are done by either Navaho Indians or by other people who wish to preserve this craft. 64. Which of the following would be the best title for the passage? A. The Navaho Indian B. The Ancient ―Singer‖ C. Functions of Art D. The Navaho Sandpaintings 65. How did the ―singer‖ treat the patient according to the passage? A. By passing his supernatural power on to the patient. B. By applying a magic substance to the patient’s body. C. By rubbing the patient’s sick parts with sand from a sandpainting figure. D. By destroying the sandpainting figure. 66. The traditional Navaho does not allow copying of sandpaintings because ________. A. anything copied has no effect B. the craft only belongs to the supernatural C. it’s against Navaho belief system D. the copying may do harm to other Navahos 67. That the reproductions of sandpaintings are now commercially available shows ________.
A. people have realized the artistic value of sandpaintings B. patients have benefited from the powerful effect of sandpaintings C. more people have come to believe in supernatural power D. modern technology has helped the production of sandpaintings D Silence is unnatural to man. He begins life with a cry and ends it in stillness. In between he does all he can to make a noise in the world, and he fears silence more than anything else. Even his conversation is an attempt to prevent a fearful silence. If he is introduced to another person, and a number of pauses occur in the conversation, he regards himself as a failure, a worthless person, and is full of envy of the emptiest-headed chatterbox. He knows that ninety-nine percent of human conversation means no more than the buzzing of a fly, but he is anxious to join in the buzz and to prove that he is a man and not a waxwork figure． The aim of conversation is not, for the most part, to communicate ideas；it is to keep up the buzzing sound. There are, it must be admitted， different qualities of buzz； there is even a buzz that is as annoying as the continuous noise made by a mosquito. But at a dinner party one would rather be a mosquito than a quiet person. Most buzzing, fortunately, is pleasant to the ear, and some of it is pleasant even to the mind. He would be a foolish man if he waited until he had a wise thought to take part in the buzzing with his neighbors. Those who hate to pick up the weather as a conversational opening seem to me not to know the reason why human beings wish to talk. Very few human beings join in a conversation in the hope of learning anything new. Some of them are content if they are merely allowed to go on making a noise into other people’s ears, though they have nothing to tell them except that they have seen two or three new plays or that they had food in a Swiss hotel. At the end of an evening during which they have said nothing meaningful for a long time, they just prove themselves to be successful conversationists. 68．According to the author，people make conversation to_____ . A. exchange ideas B. prove their value C. achieve success in life D. overcome their fear of silence 69．By ―the buzzing of a fly"（Para.1） ，the author means _____ . A. the noise of an insect B. a low whispering sound C. meaningless talks D. the voice of a chatterbox 70．According to the passage，people usually talk to their neighbors _____ . A. about whatever they have prepared B. about whatever they want to C. in the hope of learning something new D. in the hope of getting on well

It makes no difference what you read or study if you can't remember it. You just waste your valuable time． 71 One dependable aid that does help you remember what you study is to have a specific purpose or reason for reading． Why does a clerk in a store go away when your reply to her offer to help is, ―No, thank you．I'm just looking.‖? Both you and she know that if you aren't sure what you want, you are not likely to find it．But suppose you say instead, ―Yes, thank you．I want a pair of sun glasses.‖ She says, ―Right this way, please.‖ 72 If you choose a book, ―just looking‖ for nothing in particular, you are likely to get just that--nothing．But if you do know what you want, you are almost sure to get it．Your reasons will vary; they will include reading or studying ―to find out more about‖, ―to understand the reasons for‖ and ―to find out how‖． 73 Before you start to study, you say to yourself something like this, ―I want to know why Stephen Vincent Benet happened to write about America‖．Because you know why you are reading or studying, you relate the information to your purpose and remember it better． 74 At least two important processes go on at the same time．As you read, you take in ideas rapidly and accurately. But at the same time you express your own ideas to yourself as you react to what you read. You have a kind of mental conversation with the author． This additional process of thinking about what you read includes evaluating it, relating it to what you already know, and using it for your own purposes． 75 One part of critical reading, as you have discovered, is distinguishing between facts and opinions．Facts can be checked by evidence, opinions are one’s own personal reactions．Another part of critical reading is judging sources．Still another part is drawing accurate inferences． A. Maybe you have already discovered some clever ways to keep yourself from forgetting． B. It is important for students to have a positive attitude to their study． C. You remember better when you know what you' re reading． D. In other words, a good reader is a critical reader． E. It’s quite the same with your studying． F. Reading is not one single activity． G. This is the way it works．

I’ll graduate from high school this year, and I’m planning to apply for the Yale Summer Session 2013. Now I’m writing to ask about several questions concerned. Firstly, I’m curious to know about the course arrangement. How many courses will you offer in all and what subjects will it cover? Since I’m interested in computer science very much, I would very much like to take computer related courses. I would also want to know the time schedule of these courses to see whether I’ll have time to visit other places in America on weekends. Secondly, can you introduce boarding arrangement during the Summer Session? Are all the students living on campus or shall we rent houses in advance? Looking forward to your reply!
Best regards, Yours sincerely, Li Hua
