It was set in an English village deep in the countrys ide, quite different from my home in Sweden. One of my fellow volunteers, a girl from Tanzania, seemed a little unhappy, so I asked what the problem was. She told me she had a friend back home who had financial difficulties and maybe it was impossible for her to complete her university courses. So this friend of mine had sent all her money to Tanzania to support her friend! This meant that she didn’t have much food to eat and no money to go anywhere outside the village. I was so touched and I felt I had to do something. So, during my next trip to one of the nearby towns I walked into a shop. I didn’t have much money left myself but I thought I’d buy her an extra box of the muesli we both liked and some rice. I started talking to the woman (also a volunteer) working in the shop and eventually told her about my friend.

The woman looked at me, amazed. “Does she eat pasta?” she asked. “Yes,” I replied. She immediately started loading a bag with pasta, cookies, and other things until the bag was full. “Give her this for me. It’s my treat!” I couldn’t believe it but cried with happiness. As I left the shop to go home with my unexpected bag of food, I asked the woman her name. “Just Gloria,” she said. Imagine my friend’s face when I arranged the gifts on my kitche n table and fetched her from her room to see! I have never seen her so happy! A fe w weeks later she found Gloria in the shop and thanked her in person. These two extraordinary women really showed me what true kindness and compassion are, and the impression will stay with me for the rest of my life! 56. The underlined word “it” in Paragraph 1 probably refers to “ A. a year of voluntary service C. the writer’s home B. the residential home D. the shop “.

57. Why did the girl from Tanzania seem a little unhappy? A. Because she had to stop her voluntary work. B. Because she had spent all her money on food and clothes. C. Because her friend in Tanzania maybe had to quit school for lack of money. D. Because she had no money to buy food or other things. 58. From the text, we know that A. the writer was from England B. Gloria was from Sweden and was very kind to the writer C. the writer was a university student from Tanzania D. the writer volunteered to help people with learning disabilities 59. Why did the writer help the girl from Tanzania? A. Because they lived in the same room. B. Because the writer was moved by her kind act. C. Because the writer was a volunteer. D. Because the writer didn’t wish she went hungry. B On October 23, 1990, David Pologruto, a high school physics teacher, was stabbed (刺) by his smart student Jason Haffizulla. Jason got straight A’s and was determined to study medicine at Harvard, yet this was his downfall. His physics teacher gave Jason a B, a mark Jason believed would undermine (损害) his entrance to Harvard. After receiving his B, Jason took a butcher knife to school and stabbed his physics teacher. .

How can someone as smart as Jason do something so dumb? Studies show there is little or no correlation between IQ and emotional intelligence. During my early university years, I regarded myself as an intelligent guy. I got good marks in mathematics, physics, and other subjects. I thought such skills would surely give me a bright future. After one year of study with decent marks, I began to see two major classes of students. The first category of students turned up to few lectures, partied every weekend, enjoyed a great social life, and did minimal work to pass courses. The second category of students were intelligent and hard workers who got good grades and were very focused on their studies. Surely would these inte lligent and hard-working students find the great jobs before the other lazier class of students? Not so. Students are often shocked upon graduation that their qualifications are not as important as they once thought. Graduates enter the workforce only to realize that co-workers hate them and less intelligent people are the ones receiving promotions. Educational skills are useless in some industries when interpersonal skills are absent. You can have great ideas, theories, and solve complex problems, but if you cannot effectively communicate in a persuasive and exciting manner by relating to your fellow humans, you will face an uphill battle in whatever challenges you encounter. It’s not that people dislike you because of your intelligence; it’s that people dislike you because you’re rude and not understanding. The intelligent person with poor communication skills is insensitive or unaware of others’ emotions. 60. Jason Haffizulla stabbed his physics teacher because A. he was unfairly treated by his teacher B. he was disappointed with his downfall C. he was not smart enough at studies D. he got a worse mark than usual 61. We can infer from the third paragraph that the author B. didn’t work hard C. belonged to the first category of students D. could keep a balance between social life and studies 62. Intelligent people are hated because A. they can solve more complex problems B. they can’t settle the challenges they meet C. they are envied for their intelligence . in his early university years. A. didn’t think communication skills were as important as intelligence .

D. they are not understanding enough 63. What can make people succeed at work according to the last paragraph? A. Educational skills. B. Communication skills. C. Good manners. D. Awareness of people’s emotions. C The tough economy is bringing new shoppers to the secondh and market. Plato’s Closet in Charlotte, NC is a private company which mainly buys and sells used clothes. While Charlotte has outstanding secondhand stores offering high-end and sophisticated (高雅时髦的) brands for women, most of their stock applies to adults. Plato’s Closet targets teens and those in their 20s. Plato’s Closet, with stores in Matthews and the university area, sells clothes and accessories (装饰品) that are currently popular at up to 70 percent off retail prices (零售价). The two hottest brands, for buying and selling, are Hollister and Abercrombie & Fitch. Even though the offerings tend to be suitable for young people, there are a variety of shoppers at Plato’s Closet of varying ages. Women in their 30s, 40s and older could easily find a purse, jacket or piece of jewelry they like. Customer Beth Gibbs, 52, who has three teenage daughters, said she used to shop at namebrand stores, but “this year I’m shopping more in secondhand stores” because of the economy. If you’re selling Unlike higher-end resale stores which usually work on consignment (寄售), Plato’s Closet buys on the spot. Items can be gently used, but must be in very good condition. Clothes should be less than two years old and styles should be the same as those still being sold at the shopping center. T here is no negotiation; prices are set company-wide. If what you sell amounts to $30 or less, they’ll give you cash. More than that, you’ll get a Visa cash card. Secondhand success Don’t get discouraged if you can’t find something on your first trip. Resale shops are always getting new lists of goods and change their styles with each season. Be sure to check each piece carefully before buying. Price co mparison Jackets: New York & Company black blazer, $12; retail: $37. Pants: Express Editor-style pants, $12; retail: $69.9 0. Shoes: Nine West black peep-toe pumps, $12; retail: $89.

In Washington, a federal judge last week blocked the Food and Drug Administration from requiring new warning labels on cigarette packs. Judge Richard Leon ruled in a case brought by five tobacco companies. The judge temporarily stopped a new federal rule which requires large new warnings starting next September. These include color images such as a dead body or diseased lungs. And simple text warnings now appear. Congress called for color images showing the dangers of smoking, similar to what Canada does. But the tobacco companies say the new requirements approved in June violate (侵犯) their free speech rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Judge Leon said the FDA could not require the new labels before a lawsuit (诉讼) against the government is decided. Some experts say the process could take years. The judge said he believed the cigarette makers were highly likely to win their case. He said the images should be designed to appeal to emotions, rejecting government arguments that they should be purely factual. He accused the government of trying to use the labels to promote an “obvious anti-smoking agenda!” .

The head of an anti-smoking group, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, called the decision “wrong on the science and wrong on the law”. About one-fifth of American adults smoke. The World Health Organization says tobacco kills nearly six million people worldwide each year. More than six hundred thousand of them are nonsmokers who breathe other people’s tobacco smoke. In Australia, tobacco companies want to stop what would be the world’s most restrictive laws on cigarette advertising. Cigarettes could be sold only in plain olive-green packages. Only t he brand name and health warnings could appear. The Senate passed the bill last week and sent it back to the Lower House to approve minor amendments (修正). The law is to go into effect in December of next year. Tobacco companies say the legislation (法规) violates the Australian constitution. They say it would unjustly reduce the value of their brand names and trademarks. Health Minister Nicola Roxon says the government is ready for a legal fight. 68. What are the tobacco companies in the United States and Australia fighting against? A. The requirements to sell fewer products to the public. B. The requirements to print new warning labels on their products. C. The measures to make their products more attractive. D. The ways to make the companies close their business. 69. What warning label on cigarette packs is being used in the United States? A. An image of a dead body. B. An image of diseased lungs. C. Text of health warnings. D. Text of advertisements.

70. Which country has adopted color images showing the dangers of smoking as warning labels? A. America. B. Australia.

C. Canada. D. Britain. 71. In 2013, what will Australian cigarettes probably look like? A. Plain olive-green packages only with health warnings. B. Plain olive-green packages only with the brand name and health warnings. C. Plain packages with the brand name and health warnings. D. Plain packages with color images of a dead body or diseased lungs. E Microwaves may be great at warming up food, but what about warming people? Using microwaves to directly heat owners of a room would save much of the energy wasted by heating walls and furniture. And despite popular ideas about microwaves, this technique would be safe, according to Charles R.Buffler of the Microwave Research Center in Marlborough, New

Hampshire. He found that low-power microwaves only penetrate (穿过)the skin with no negative effects. To test this idea, Buffler subjected himself to microwaves in a special room using a standard 500-watt, 2459 MHz magnetron (磁控管). He found that a person will start to feel warmth at about 20 kilowatts per square centimeter (kw/sq. cm); a satisfactory feeling of warmth occurs between 30 and 50 kw/sq. cm. By comparison, a person standing in noonday summer sun feels the amount of 85 kw/sq. cm. And a frozen meat pie in your microwave oven receives about 1000 kw/sq. cm. In houses of the future, each room could be provided with its own magnetron, says Buffler. When you stepped into the living room, for example, a motion detector (运动感应器) would turn on the magnetron, filling the room with low-power microwaves. In the same way that a microwave oven heats up a hamburger, but not the plate it's on, you would feel warmth from the microwaves without changing the temperature of your coffee table. (You could, however, make your favorite easy chair even more com fortable by treating it with a radiation-absorbing chemical.) While it might be some time before homeowners are comfortable enough with the idea to set up whole-body microwave heaters in houses, Buffler says microwaves may attract livestock(家畜) farmers. Lambs that are born outdoors in winter, for example, are frequently lost to cold. Microwaves could warm the lambs safely and quickly. 72. What's the passage mainly about? A. A new heating system. C. A popular technique. B. A new microwave oven. D. The magnetron.

73. From Para. 2, which of the following is NOT the characteristic of a microwave heater? A. It is safe. B. It saves energy. C. It directly heats people in a room. D. It heats walls and furniture in a room. 74. The test shows that when a person feels comfortable warmth, he receives about ________. A. 20 kw/sq. cm. B. 40 kwlsq. cm. C. 60 kw/sq.cm. D. 85 kw/sq.cm. 75. From Para. 4, we can know that________ fills the room with low-power microwaves. A. the magnetron B. the motion detector C. the microwave oven D. the radiation-absorbing chemical 第四部分 写作(共两节,满分 35 分) 第一节 短文填词 (共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分)
