What many UGG-enthusiasts don’t know is that their boots are a breeding ground for bacteria and cause foot problems. Doctors believe the boots, which are particularly popular among young teenage girls, are leading to a rise in the number of people suffering pains in their feet and knees. Dr. Ian Drysdale， head of the British College of Osteopathic Medicine， believes because the foot does not get the proper support on the inside，it will lead to more ankle，knee，hip and back problems. “These boots are not designed for outside wear. Just because something becomes a trend or fashionable doesn’t mean it’s good or right， he said, “The particular problem with this type of ” footwear is that it is unsupported. It’s a slipper. You wouldn’t normally expect to be doing outdoor activities from something that’s indoor. If you decide to wear your pajamas outside all. the time, someone will come up and say it’s not a good idea. ” Dr. Drysdale explained that the feet issues become a particular problem among young teenage girls， whose bones are “ plastic ” and developing when they are growing. “ If that structure is developing in an inappropriate way,” he said, “then the ultimate structure will be deformed ” Mike 0，NeiU, a consultant surgeon, said, “As the foot slides around, you get wear and tear (磨 损）on the joints on the inside of the foot The ankle is m the wrong position, the thigh bone ALSO D. novel
changes position, and you get an abnormal movement in the pelvis, which leads to back problems. ” UGG AustraUa9 who makes the designer version of the boots, told TheDailyMirror that their boots are “comfort” rather than “performance” footwear and consumers should be aware of “knockoffs” （仿制品)which lack reinforced heels in their boots. 64.Teenage girls prefer to wear UGG boots because of the following except______ A. design B. comfort C. quality D. warmth
65.Accordi^ to Dr. Ian Drysdale，_____ A. there is a possibility that bacteria will multiply in UGG boots B. wearing UGG boots will lead to more ankle and toe problems C. it’s not a good idea to wear boots like UGG outside all the time D. teenage girl’s bones are plastic enough to wear UGG boots 66.The underlined word “ deformed” is closest in meaning to_____ A. shaped 67. B_ strengthened C. reformed D. damaged
Which of the following can be the best title for the text? B. The Popularity of UGG Boots D. Benefits of UGG Boots D
A. Potential Harm of UGG Boots C, The Unique Design of UGG Boots
Deception (骗术）is something that people do all. the time ,and it plays an important role in military (军事的)strategy. Now some researchers are trying to figure out how to get robots to do it, by looking at the behavior of squirrels and birds. At Georgia Tech, a team led by Ronald Arkin , a professor at the School of interactive Computing, studied the literature on squirrels hiding their acorns (橡果）.Squirrels will hide their food m a certain place, but when they see other squirrels trying to steal from them, they attempt to fool the thieves by running to a fake location. Ronald Arkin and his Ph. D. student Jaeeun Shim used that as a model for robot behavior. They programmed the robot into tricking a “predator (捕食者） machine by doing what εi squirrel does： ” showing the enemy a false location for an important resource. The team also looked at how other animals in this case，a species of bird called Arabian babbler~ drive off predators. A babbler will make an alarm call when they see a predator and other babblers will join the bird and make more calls. They then surround the predator, all the while
flapping (拍打）wings and making noises. The babblers don’t ever actually fight the animal they want to drive off； they just make enough noises and flaps around enough so that it seems that attacking a babbler isn’t worth it They found that the deception works when the group reaches a certain size—essentially, when enough birds arrive to convince the enemy that it’s best to back off . Davis modeled that behavior in software using a military scene and found that it worked even if the group didn’t have the firepower to confront the enemy directly. The military is interested in this because a robot that can fool an opponent is a valuable tool. It could lead an enemy down a fake trail or make itself look more dangerous than it actually is. 68. Why does the military want to take advantage of squirrels’trick?
A. It can reduce the use of firepower to confront the enemy. B. It can fool the enemy into believing it is more dangerous. C. It can lead the enemy in a wrong direction to avoid losing resources. D. It can scare the enemy away who wants to destroy the acorns. 69. Which of the following is NOT the way Arabian babblers drive off predators?
A. One bird makes an alarm call and other birds will join it B. They fight the enemy bravely face to face. C. They make noises and flaps around the predator. D. They force the predator aware that it isn't worthwhile to attack. 70. What is the main idea of the passage?
A. Animals' behaviors are researched to be applied to the study of military robots. B. Robots, fooling tricks are applied to the study of animals’behaviors. C. Birds and squirrels are the animals that are good at deception. D. Researchers are interested m animals’military-related behaviors. 第二节（共 5 小题;每小题 2 分,满分 10 分） 根据短文内容，从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选 项。 71________ Examinations are almost always stressful Students rarely know exactly what to expect on the test, and those who suffer from exam fear or exam anxiety can see their grades suffer as a result of
this stress.

书面表达： Dear Ms. Sullivan,
I’m Li Hua, a middle school student from China. 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? Thank you! Looking forward to your reply! Best regards, Yours sincerely,

She also picks a bottle of wine, for the weekend dinner party of course. There, she meets Mrs. Young, with her three-year-old daughter. She is sitting in the trolley, as she is too heavy. While Mrs. Bell is talking with Mrs. Young, the three-year-old girl Lily, who is not interested in their talk, finds a bottle of whisky and begins to play with it. Then she puts it in Mrs. Bell's handbag. Mrs. Bell puts the bottle of wine she selects into her trolley and joins the line of customers before the cashier to have her shopping checked out. A detective happens to be standing nearby and notices Mrs. Bell's handbag. While Mrs. Bell is going towards the exit, the detective stops her and asks about the bottle of whisky. Mrs. Bell is shocked. She cannot explain how the bottle of whisky has got into her handbag, and she has to follow the detective into the manager's office.
