wheelchair volleyball and wheelchair basketball teams At the age of 27, Hansen started his Man in Motion World Tur to raise awareness and money for spinal research.

C Perfume（香水）—A Promise in a Bottle “Perfume,” says expert perfumer Sophia Grojsman, “is a promise in a bottle.” That promise might be reflected in a perfume’s name: Joy, Pleasures, or Beautiful, for example. Millions of dollars are spent on the marketing of a perfume, trying to get customers to connect attraction or attitude to a fragrance. Even without the marketing, fragrance has power over our thoughts and feelings. Some scientists insist that memory and smell are especially closely linked. Certain aromas （气味） have the power to call up deep memories. Perfume makers are aware of this and use aromas that can touch us deeply. The Power of Aromas Of every ten new perfumes put on the market, perhaps only one will succeed. It’s risky to try, as a company introducing a new fragrance can easily run through a budget of 20 million dollars. Profits（利润）, however, can be very high. One successful fragrance, CK One from designer Calvin Klein, made 250 million dollars in its first year. In the perfume world, the most basic and important quality is the material with its own special aroma. Some are natural, coming from flowers, plants, or wood, for
example. Others are synthetic materials, that is, the materials which are not natural but made with the help of science. According to expert perfumer Harry Fremont, a good fragrance “is a balance between naturals and synthetics”. Image（形象）and Marketing Sephora is France’s leading perfume store. In a store of shining stone, metal, and glass, famous perfumes are shown and guarded like works of art in the nearby Louvre Museum. Salespeople are dressed in black, and each type of perfume is sold in a particularly shaped bottle. In perfume sales, the importance is on presentation at least as much as on the product. If you’re confused about which perfume to buy, perfumer Annie Buzantian offers her advice: you really can’t get an idea whether a perfume works or not until you wear it. “It’s like the difference between a dress on the hanger on the hanger and a dress on your body,” says Buzantian. “Your first impression is often the right one.”
57. What is the main idea of the first paragraph? A. The name is especially important for a perfume. B. Too much money is wasted on the perfume market. C. Perfume provides joy, pleasure and beauty to customers. D. The perfume industry makes promises it can never keep.
58. According to Harry Fremont, a good fragrance is a balance between ______. A. fresh flowers and new plants B. naturals and man-made materials C. naturals and people’s favorite D. wood and materials with special smell
59. What is probably the main reason that Sephora’s perfumes are so well guarded?
A. It is the way to impress customers. B. Each bottle is worth a lot of money. C. French stores are normally well guarded. D. The store has been attacked for many times.
D Cell Phone Are the New Cigarette When you get in your car, you reach for it. When you are at work, you take a break to have a moment alone with it. When you get in to a lift, you play with it. Cigarette? Cup of coffee? No, it’s the third most addictive thing in modern life, the cell phone. Experts say that it is becoming more difficult for many people to curb their longing to hug it more tightly than most of their personal relationships. With its shiny surface and its smooth and satisfying touch, the cell phone connects us to the world even as it disconnects us from people three feet away. In just the past couple of years, the cell phone has challenged people in ways its inventors in the late 1940s never imagined. The costs are becoming even more obvious, and I don’t mean just the monthl y bill. Dr. Chris Knippers, working at the Betty Ford Center in Southern California, reports that the overuse of cell phones has become a social problem not much different from other harmful addictions: a problem that limits one-on-one personal contact, and an escape from reality. Sounds extreme, but we’ve all witnessed the evidence: the person at restaurant who talks on the phone through an entire meal, ignoring his kids around the table; the women who talks on the phone in the car, ignoring her husband; the teen who texts messages all the way home from school, avoiding contact with kids all around him.
Jim Williams,an industrial sociologist based in Massachusetts, notes that cell-phone addiction is part of a set of symptoms in a widening gulf of personal separation. He points to a study by Duke University researchers that found one-quarter of Americans say they have no one to discuss
their most important personal business with,Williams says studies show that we don't have as many friends as our parents."Just as more information has led to less wisdom,more acquaintances via the Internet and cell phones have produced fewer friends."he says. 60.Which orf the following best explains the title of the passage?
61.The underlined word “curb” in Paragraph 2 probably means “________”
2.The example of a woman talking on the phone in the car supports the indea that___
