Einstein, a great scientist of the age, was almost as strange as his Theory of Relativity. Once, while riding a street car in Berlin, he told the conductor that he had not given him the right change. The conductor counted the change again and found it to be correct, so he handed it to Einstein, saying, “The trouble with you is that you don?t know your figures.” Einstein said that there were only twelve people living who understood his Theory of Relativity although a good many books had been written to explain it. He had nothing but contempt(蔑视) for the things most people set their hearts on --- for fame and riches(财富) and luxury(奢华). He didn?t want money or praise. He made his own happiness out of such simple things as his work and playing the violin and sailing his boat. Einstein?s violin brought him more joy than anything else in life.

He believed that people would want for their pets what they wanted for themselves. Kennels(狗舍) have been around for a long time, but nowadays masters want to put their loved pets in some better places, he added.

Life has changed for millions of young people across the world who now make friends online. Whether you use chat-rooms, QQ, MSN or ICQ, you are a member of this group. “I don?t often talk with my parents or grand-parents, but I talk a lot with my old friends on QQ,” said Fox?s Shadow, the online name used by a girl student in China. “Most of my classmates use QQ after school.” QQ is the biggest messaging service in China. A recorder from Tencent, the company which developed QQ, shows that 4 million people used it one Saturday night in October. And probably Fox?s Shadow was one of them. “I log in(登陆) on Friday nights, and Saturdays when I feel everything around me boring. I usually spend about ten hours chatting on-line every week,” she said. “But I never talk with strangers, especially boys or men.” Even though she likes chatting, she is careful about making friends with strangers online. “You don?t know who you?re talking to. You should always be careful about whom you believe in online.” Many people would like to meet offline when they feel they have got to know someone very well. Fox?s Shadow once met one of her online friends face to face. It was a girl who was a football fan like herself and they went to a football match together.
A 16-year-old Beijing boy, named Bart Simon online, dislikes QQ uses. “I used to chat on QQ, but I found that most people were talking about foolish things,” he said. Now he chats online in English, using MSN. “I only chat online because I?ve got friends in Japan, the US and Singapore,” he said. “I want to learn more about foreign cultures.” But he spends little time chatting on QQ as he sees it as a waste of time and money. “If you are really addicted to it, sometimes you can?t give your mind to your lessons,” he said. “And friends in your real life are always more important than those so-called friends you meet online.” 49.

Sure, it?s good to get along with your teacher because it makes the time you spend in the classroom more pleasant. And yes, it?s good to get along with your teacher because, in general, it?s smart to learn how to relate to the different types of people you?ll meet throughout your life. But really, there?s one super-important reason why you should get along with your teacher. When you do, “learning bursts right open,” says Evelyn Vuko, a longtime teacher who writes an education column called “Teacher Says” for the Washington Post newspaper. In fact, kids who get along with their teachers not only learn more, but they?re more comfortable asking questions and getting extra help. This makes it easier to understand new material and do your best on tests. When you have this kind of relationship with a teacher, he or she can be someone to turn to with problems, such as problems with learning or school issues, such as bullying(欺负 人). As a kid in a primary or middle school, you?re at a wonderful stage in your life. You?re like a sponge(海绵), able to soak up lots of new and exciting information. On top of that, you?re able to think about all this information in new ways. Your teacher knows that, and in most cases, is very excited to be the person who?s giving you all that material and helping you put it together. Remember, teachers are people, too, and they feel great if you?re open to what they?re teaching you. That?s why they wanted to be teachers in the first place --to teach! Some kids may be able to learn in any situation, whether they like the teacher or not. But most kids are sensitive(敏感的) to the way they get along with the teacher, and if things aren?t going well, they won?t learn as well and won?t enjoy being in class. 57. In the passage, the teacher mainly talks about _____. A. how to get along well with teachers B. the importance of a good relation with teachers C. how much the students are expected of to get along with teachers D. how to make the time in the classroom more pleasant 58. “Learning bursts right open” in the third paragraph really means _____. A. learning becomes easier for you at once B. you find an opening to learning C. there’ll be more problems with learning D. there’ll be no problems with learning. 59. According to the passage, which of the following offers the best reasoning? A. You are getting on well with your teachers, so you have more questions than others. B. You find it comfortable to ask questions, so you can build a good relationship with teachers. C. You have a good relationship with teacher, so you can turn to him/ her when in trouble.
D. You are in trouble, so you can build a good relationship with teachers. 60. Which of the comments is FALSE on teachers and their work according to the passage? A. Teachers are exited even if you wouldn?t like to accept their teaching. B. Teachers sometimes have the same feelings as students do. C. Though few there are still some students who can learn even if they don?t like the teacher. D. Having a bad relationship with your teachers does more or less harm to your studies. 第二节：篇章结构（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 下面是一篇文章， 请将标有 A—E 的段落插入文章中标号为 61---65 的合适位置， 使这篇文章意义完整，结构连贯。并将答案写在答题纸上。 She is widely seen as proof that good looks can last forever. But, at nearly 500 years of age, time is catching up with the Mona Lisa. 61 “The thin, wooden panel on which the Mona Lisa is painted in oil has changed shape since experts checked it two years ago,” the museum said. 63 62 “It is very interesting that when you?re not looking at her, she seems to be smiling, and then you look at her and she stops,” said Professor Margaret Livingstone of Harvard University. “It?s because direct vision(视觉) is excellent at picking up detail, but less suited to looking at shadows. Da Vinci painted the smile in shadows.” However, the actual history of the Mona Lisa is just as mysterious as the smile. 64 In 1911, the painting was stolen from the Louvre by a former employee, who took it out of the museum hidden under his coat. He said he planned to return it to Italy. The painting was sent back to France two years later. 65 A. Nearly 6 million people go to see the Mona Lisa every year, many attracted by the mystery of her smile. B. This picture is now so valuable that no one can tell its exact price. Therefore, many thieves tried to steal it in any way they could think of. C. Visitors have noticed the changes but repairing the world?s most famous painting is not easy. Experts are not sure about the materials the Italian artist used and their current chemical state. D. Da Vinci himself loved it so much that he always carried it with him, until it was eventually sold to France?s King Francis I in 1519. E. The health of the famous picture, painted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1505, is getting worse by the year, according to the Louvre Museum(卢 浮宫博物馆) where it is housed. F. During World War II , French hid the painting in small towns to keep it out of the hands of German forces. Like many old ladies, the Mona Lisa has some interesting stories to tell.
