For her efforts, Ms. Asifi, who is 49, has won the 2015 UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award. She also gets $100,000 to help pay for her education projects. The UNHCR Nansen Refugee Award honors extraordinary service to people who have been forced from their homes. Eleanor Roosevelt, Graca Machel and Luciano Pavarotti are some of the other winners of the award. Asifi faced many problems in Afghanistan before she fled to Pakistan. Resources were limited and education for women was discouraged. However, in Pakistan, the 49-year-old was able to bring change to her conservative Afghan community. She persuaded parents to send their daughters to school in a tent at the Kot Chandana refugee village. The village was in the Punjab Province of Pakistan. Since then, Ms. Asifi has guided more than a thousand refugee girls through their primary education. “When I began my mission to educate Afghan girls, I could not have imagined that one day it will win me this award. I cannot express my happiness,” she told VOA. Ms. Asifi was a teacher in Kabul when she fled with her family in 1992. “In Afghanistan I was teaching both boys and girls,” she told VOA. “When I left Afghanistan and ended up in this refugee village with my family, I was saddened to find out there were no facilities here, particularly for women and girls.” They made their home in the distant refugee community in Kot Chandana. There she began teaching a small number of students in her tent. She made teaching materials by hand. Her tent school has led to the opening of several permanent schools in the village. These schools teach more than one thousand children. Support from the UNHCR, local government, and
non-governmental organizations helped make these new schools possible. Ms. Asifi is a mother of six children. She has worked hard to pay for their education. She spends almost all her income to pay her son’s tuition to study engineering at Kabul University. But seeking higher education for her four daughters is difficult. There is not enough money or secondary schools for girls in the village. The Afghan teacher hopes more and more children will receive an education in Afghanistan. She hopes her home country becomes better known for higher levels of education, instead of war. “I want my goal to be introduced in parts of Afghanistan where conservative traditions and customs still prevent parents from sending their daughters to outdoor schools,” she said. 69. According to the passage, Asifi was able to win the 2015 UNHCR Nansen Refugee award mainly because________. A. she suffered a lot more than other refugees who fled to Pakistan B. she was the kindest person all over the world C. she witnessed the cruelest event when she was in Afghanistan D. she made great contributions to refugees despite leaving her homeland 70. Which of the following is TRUE about Asifi’s experiences? A. Before she fled to Afghanistan, she had been a teacher in Pakistan. B. Asifi succeeded in changing attitudes of Afghan refugees toward girl education. C. Asifi determined to win the award when she began to educate Afghan girls. D. All the materials needed for teaching were borrowed. 71. What can be inferred from the passage? A. Resources were unlimited and education for women was encouraged before Asifi fled to Pakistan. B. Eleanor Roosevelt, Graca Machel and Luciano Pavarotti all fled to other countries from Afghanistan. C. Asifi’s daughters can enjoy equal opportunities like their brothers to receive higher education at university. D. Asifi still treats her own country with great affection though living as a refugee in another country. C It took 100 years, but finally, scientists, from CalTech, MIT and the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, proved Albert Einstein's theory that gravitational(引力的) waves exist. The waves were predicted as part of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity nearly 100 years ago. It was the theory of the physics behind the workings of our world and the universe. The idea was that the waves are like ripples in space, caused by some of the violent and energetic processes in the Univers e. For example, two black holes crashing into each other. What are these gravitational waves? Well, imagine throwing a rock into a pond. When the rock hits the flat surface of the water, it creates ripples or waves. Space time is like the surface of the water. So that means gravitational waves are like the ripples moving out from where the rock hits the water. It might be hard to understand, but those gravitational waves expand and contract space and time as they move through space. And when they get to the Earth, the waves pass through, and contract and expand the planet as the wave goes by. It was Einstein who said these gravitational waves should be observable. But these are not huge waves. They are very, very small, which is why it took so long to find them. You cannot see them with your eyes. They are smaller than the size of an atom. How did the scientists find them? For years, scientists have been watching two black holes in another galaxy faraway with the help of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory. The two were spinning around each other, moving closer and closer together. When they finally
crashed into each other, it was with such power and force, that gravitational waves rang throughout the universe, like a giant bell. Those waves, traveling at the speed of light, finally reached the Earth, some 1.3 billion years later. They are the same waves that the scientists announced this past week. The National Science Foundation tweeted that each of the black holes was thought to be 29 to 36 times the mass of our sun. So, what does this discovery mean? Abhay Ashtekar, a Penn State physicist, who was not on the discovery team, said: "Our understanding of the heavens changed dramatically." st 72. According to the 1 paragraph, we can learn that_______. A. gravitational waves were part of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity B. scientists proved that gravitational waves existed 100 years ago C. gravitational waves were the theory of the physics behind the universe D. gravitational waves result from two black holes crashing into each other 73. From the passage we can know that the gravitational waves______. A. are not supposed to be observed. B. are very huge. C. are easy to be found. D. can’t be seen with our eyes. 74. Why did scientists spend years watching two black holes? A. Because they wanted to see how the two black holes crashed into each other. B. Because they wanted to find the gravitational waves. C. Because they wanted to see the gravitational waves reach the Earth. D. Because they wanted to know how black holes formed. 75. What can we infer from the passage? A. The discovery has no relation to Albert Einstein's theory B. Throwing a rock into a pond can generate gravitational waves C. The discovery will considerably affect people’s understanding of universe D. gravitational waves can’t contract and expand the Earth D We’ve all heard the quote, ‘Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.’ My husband and son died within two years of each other. From my personal experience, I believe that if we aren't careful, grief can become a rather self-involved process in which we can become so focused on our own suffering that we miss the opportunity to connect with, and possibly bring comfort to, someone else who may be going through a similar experience. Six months after my husband died, I was sinking in the quicksand of grief. I could not pull myself out of the misery. In that moment, I actually believed that my life was more difficult than anyone else around me. Life handed me a perfectly wrapped lesson that opened my eyes to the fact that through my suffering I had allowed myself to become blinded by my self-pity. The lesson presented itself in a health crisis. I had complications (并发症) from a surgical procedure and ended up being hospitalized for four days. I was in an extreme amount of pain during this time. Between the physical pain and the emotional pain of grief, I was an absolute mess. I should also tell you that I am a Registered Nurse. As a nurse, it is hard to be on the receiving end of medicine as the patient. The first three nights that I was in the hospital, the same nurse took care of me. She was young, maybe in her mid to late 20s, and she hardly interacted with me at all the first two nights, other than to give my medications as scheduled. She obviously had no idea how much emotional pain I was in. How hard is it to ask your patient how she's feeling? I wrote her off as a bad nurse who had little sympathy, and remained absorbed in my own emotional and physical pain. The third night the young nurse was a little more talkative. She asked me how I was feeling (finally!). I told her that I was struggling with depression and grief because my husband had died in an airplane accident. She looked at me and told me that her husband had
died too, just two months earlier. I was stunned. Speechless. Shocked. Never, in any of the possibilities that my mind entertained of why this nurse was so unfriendly to me, did I even consider that she might be in the same pain I was. Not only was she grieving as I was, but she was having to take care of me, instead of caring for herself and her family. We went on to talk and share our stories about our late husbands and children. I like to think that we helped each other a bit that night. We had much more in common than I would have believed. We were both widowed single moms with young children, and nurses. But, that was where the similarities ended. Her husband had no insurance policy. She had very little family support. She was working paycheck to paycheck to support her boys. I was humbled. I realized how much I had to be grateful for. And, frankly, I never saw life the same way after this experience. This experience was a life-changing event for me. I had always prided myself on being a sympathetic person, but I realize now that I had not really understood what being sympathetic meant. To truly be sympathetic, you must be able to see beyond your own pain to be witness to the pain. I never looked at another person in the same way after this experience. I thank death for very few things. The gift of sympathy for my fellow man, and understanding that we all suffer in ways that aren't always visible, are presents from death that I will always be grateful for. Always take the time to be kind even when you’re suffering with your own pain. And don't assume that someone else has it easier than you. You never know the battles someone else is fighting. 76. What can we conclude from the author’s personal experience in para2? A. We can always comfort people who experienced the similar suffering. B. We become more concentrated on ourselves once hurt. C. We never get through what we suffered any more. D. People self-centered won’t have the chance to be hurt. 77. What can be learned from the underlined sentence in para3? A. Self-pity always brings about selflessness. B. Selflessness often brings out blindness. C. Self-pity always results in selfishness. D. Selfishness can prevent self-pity. 78. Why did the author regard the nurse as a bad one at first? A. The nurse treated her abruptly. B. The nurse didn’t offer medications on time. C. The nurse seldom communicated with her. D. The nurse was irresponsible. 79. Which one is closest to the meaning of the word ‘humbled’? A. ashamed B. beaten C. defeated D. depressed 80. Which of the following can best serve as the title of the passage? A. Every bean has its black. B. Let bygones be bygones. C. Misfortunes never come singly. D. Stand in others’ shoes. 第Ⅱ卷（共 35 分） 第四部分 任务型阅读（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 1 请认真阅读下面短文，并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入最适当的单词。注意：每空一个 , 单词。 3 Lights Won the Nobel Why Blue LED The 2014 Nobel Prize in physics went , to three scientists who gave lighting a big change by inventing blue LED lights. A big change5in lighting efficiency is under way around the world. Save and green LEDs use less energy than other forms of lighting. A typical LED bulb(灯泡) can produce around 83 lumens per watt — a measure of how much brightness you can get from a unit of electrical power — much more efficient than other lighting facilities.
LEDs produce light by passing electric current through a semiconductor, while traditional bulbs pass current through a wire. The wasted heat energy is chiefly why traditional bulbs are so much less efficient. LEDs also last about 30 times longer than traditional bulbs, and many LED bulb products promise up to 25,000 hours of use — more than 17 years if you used one for about four hours a day. Lighting the world The lighting transformation is not only in homes. LEDs are also being used for street lights, public holiday and decorative displays, commercial buildings, and other large energy users. Car lighting is another application where LEDs are making progress. LEDs used to be used only for daytime running lights, but now many new cars have LED headlights for night-time use. LEDs also hold promise for bringing light to the more than 1.5 billion people around the world without access to electricity, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences noted. Indeed, several proposed solutions to energy poverty include the distribution of LED lights, particularly solar-powered ones. Digital displays Without blue LEDs, the world wouldn’t have back-lit smart phones, TV and computer LCD screens, blu-ray(蓝光) players, many forms of lighting, and countless other products. In the electronics industry, LEDs provide back lighting for LCD screens in many smart phones, laptops, and televisions. The LEDs are more energy efficient and allow for very thin displays. Blu-ray players use blue LED lasers(激光) to read data off a digital optical disc. When these systems switched from using an infrared(红外线) laser to a blue LED laser, it became possible to store five to 10 times as much data. LEDs are now being explored for their potential uses to transmit(传送) data from the Internet across open space, similar to WiFi. Such a system could transmit a lot more data than WiFi alone. This high bandwidth is possible because LEDs can turn on and off millions of times per second. The rise of LED lighting came at a time when people were just starting to be concerned about global warming. Because of LEDs’ energy efficiency, using them for the world’s lighting would affect environmental protection in a positive way. Why Blue LED Lights Won the Nobel The reason why blue LED lights won the 2014 Nobel Prize in physics is that they are to (81)________ in big changes in lighting. (82)________ with other forms of lighting, LEDs are much more efficient because of the different ways they pass electric current. What’s more, LED bulbs can be (83)________ 30 times longer than traditional bulbs. (84)________ from household applications of LED bulbs, they can also be used as street lights and car headlights. Lighting the world Because of their high efficiency, LEDs, especially solar-powered ones, (85)________ to light areas without access to electricity. Many smart phones, laptops and televisions use LEDs to back-light their LCD (86)________. Digital displays By using blue LED lasers, blu-ray players are likely to store (87)________ data. People are now exploring more (88)________ uses of LEDs such as transmitting data.

The state-run Xinhua news agency reported on Thursday that a move that would thoroughly relax the country's one-child policy that had been eased in recent years would come out sooner or later. China, now a nation of more than 1.3 billion people, practiced a policy of one child per couple to control population growth in the 1970s. The move was viewed as a major liberalization of the three-decades-old restriction. Nationwide, nearly 1 million couples eligible(合格的）under the new rules had applied to have a second child, state media reported at the time. Health officials had said that the policy would lead to as many as 2 million new births when the policy change was first announced. 【写作内容】 1.用约 30 个单词概述上述图文信息的主要内容； 2.用约 120 个单词发表你的观点，内容包括： （1）陈述你对文章提及政策的立场； （2）用 2-3 个理由或论据支撑你的立场 【写作要求】 1. 发表观点时必须提供理由或论据； 2. 写作过程中不能直接引用原文语句； 3. 作文中不能出现真实姓名和学校名称； 4. 不必写标题 【评分标准】 内容完整，语言规范，语篇连贯，词数适当。

As for myself, I don’t subscribe to the new policy and I prefer only-one child policy in that the only one child can enjoy the privilege of being the center of attention and get all the love and care of their parents. Besides, because of lack of mutual help and because the parents can not be with the child all the time, the only one child is likely to develop an independent character that will enable him or her to be successful more easily in society. What’s more, it’ ll be a heavy burden not only economically but physically both to young parents and other family members. In conclusion, it’s a great challenge for young parents to welcome the second child. 赞成： The above description indicates that the new policy that a second child can be allowed in every family will be expected to benefit the current population structure of China. On a personal note, I do welcome the new policy in that in most only-one child families, the child is the center of the whole family, as a result of which, parents often spoil the child by letting the child indulge in materialistic life. Furthermore, many children also complain about loneliness for lack of companions and numerous facts have revealed that selfishness and indifference have been two traits in the character of today’s only child. What’s more, the new policy is beneficial to both parents and their child. For one thing, parents will be sure to take more responsibility to support the family, which will contribute to a more harmonious society. For another, children can learn more about giving and sharing, which consists with our social morality. To conclude, I am quite in favor of the new policy.
