Bonus(奖金) culture has become the subject of many studies nowadays. Many people have been angered by the way some bankers and high officials seem to have been rewarded for failure. Others find the idea of offering many-million-dollar bonuses morally disgusting. But few have asked whether performance-related bonuses really do improve performance. The answer seems so obvious that even to ask the question can appear ridiculous. Indeed, in spite of all the complaints about them, financial encouragements continue to be introduced in more and more areas, from healthcare and public services to teaching and universities. So it may come as a shock to many to learn that paying for results can actually make people perform badly in many circumstances, and that the more you pay, the worse they perform. No one is arguing that bonuses can help companies and institutions attract and keep the best staff. Nor does anyone argue against the idea that you can encourage people to do specific tasks by linking payments to those tasks. Rather, the point is about how to get the best out of people. Do employees really perform better if you promise to pay them more for getting results? There are some obvious reasons why such payments can fail. It has been argued, for instance, that cash bonuses contributed to the financial crash, because traders had little enthusiasm to make sure that their companies enjoyed long-term survival. Most bonus projects are poorly designed, says Professor Malcolm Higgs. He thinks the reason is that organisations try to keep bonus arrangements simple. Nevertheless,
阅读理解细节理解 he thinks bonus projects can work as long as they link the interests of individual employees with the long-term goals of a business. Bonuses can also encourage cheating. “Once you start making people’s rewards dependent on outcomes rather than behaviours, the evidence is people will do whatever they can to get those outcomes,” says Professor Edward Deci. “In many cases the high officials simply lied and cheated to make the stock (股票) price go up so they got huge bonuses.” But the work of Deci and others suggests the problem with bonuses runs far deeper than poor design or cheating. In 1971, he asked students to solve puzzles, with some receiving cash prizes for doing well and others getting nothing. Deci found those offered cash were less likely to keep working on puzzles after they had done enough to get paid. These studies suggest that offering rewards can stop people doing things for the pure joy of it. This was the basis for a series of books by Kohn in which he argues that rewarding children, students and workers with grades, scholarships and other “bribes” (贿赂) leads to low-quality work in the long run. Those who believe in the power of bonuses fail to distinguish between inner drive and outside pressure — wanting to do something because you like it for itself in contrast to doing something because you want the reward, Kohn says. “It’s not just that these two are different, it’s often that the more you reward people for doing something, the more their inner drive tends to decline.” A “do this and get that” approach might improve performance in the short term, but over longer periods it will always fail, Kohn says. People who receive bonus will naturally play safe, become less creative, cooperate less and feel less valued, he adds. What’s more, the studies also suggest that offering rewards can also stop people taking responsibility. 1. The effect of performance-related bonuses has not been well studied because people _______. A. take the function of bonuses for granted B. see that bonus offering is done everywhere C. think financial encouragement is disgusting D. are shocked by the practice of rewarding for failures 2. According to Malcolm Higgs, designs that _________ are the good ones.

18. I am a strong believer that if a child is raised with approval, he learns to
阅读理解细节理解 love himself and will be successful in his own way. Several weeks ago，I was doing homework with my son in the third grade and he kept standing up from his chair to go over the math lines．I kept asking him to sit down, telling him that he would concentrate better. He sat but seconds later, as if he didn’t even notice he was doing it, he got up again．I was getting frustrated, but then it hit me．I started noticing his answers were much quicker and accurate when he stood up．Could he be more intent while standing up？ This made me start questioning myself and what I had been raised to believe. I was raised to believe that a quiet, calm child was a sure way to success．This child would have the discipline to study hard, get good grades and become someone important in life． Now those same people perhaps come to realize that their kids are born with their own sets of DNA and personality traits，and all you can do is loving and accepting them．As parents，throughout their growing years and beyond that, we need to be our kids' best cheerleaders，guiding them and helping them find their way. I have stopped asking my son to sit down and concentrate．Obviously, he is concentrating just in his own way and not mine．We need to learn to accept our kids' ways of doing things．Some way may have worked for me but doesn't mean we need to carry it through generations．There is nothing sweeter than being individual and unique．It makes us free and happy and that's just the way I want my kids to live their own life． 1.

Which is sillier: denying we ever went to the moon or trying to convince the
Once upon a time – July 20, 1969, to be specific – two men got out of their little spaceship and wandered around on the moon for a while. Ten more men walked on the moon over the next three and a half years. The end. Unfortunately, not quite. A fair number of Americans think that this whole business of moon landings really is a fairy tale. They believe that the landings were a big hoax (骗局) staged in the Mojave Desert, to convince everyone that U.S. technology was the “bestest” in the whole wide world. Which is the harder thing to do: Send men to the moon or make believe we did? The fact is the physics behind sending people to the moon is simple. You can do it with computers whose entire memory capacities can now fit on chips the size of postage stamps and that cost about as much as, well, a postage stamp. I know you can because we did. However, last fall NASA considered spending $15,000 on a public-relations campaign to convince the unimpressed that Americans had in fact gone to the moon. That idea was mostly a reaction to a Fox television program, first aired in February 2001, that claimed to expose the hoax. The show’s creator is a publicity hound (猎 狗) who has lived up to the name in more ways than one by hounding Buzz Aldrin, the second man on the moon. Mr. X (as I will call him, thereby denying him the joyous sight of his name in print) recently followed Buzz Aldrin around and called him “a thief, liar and coward” until the 72-year-old astronaut finally lost it and hit the 37-year-old Mr. X in the face. Anyway, NASA’s publicity campaign began to slow down. The nonbelievers took the campaign as NASA’s effort to hide something while the believers said that $15,000 to convince people that the world was round — I mean, that we had gone to the moon — was simply a waste of money. (Actually, the $15,000 was supposed to pay for an article by James E. Oberg, an astronomy writer who, with Aldrin, has contributed to Scientific American.) If NASA’s not paying Oberg, perhaps it could put the money to good use by hiring two big guys to drag Neil Armstrong out of the house. Armstrong is an extremely
阅读理解细节理解 private man, but he is also the first man on the moon, so maybe he has a duty to be a bit more outspoken about the experience. Or NASA could just buy Aldrin a commemorate plaque (纪念匾) for his recent touch on the face of Mr. X.
1. We can learn from Paragraphs 2 and 3 that some Americans believe _______. A. moon landings were invented B. U.S. technology was the best C. moon landing ended successfully D. the Mojave Desert was the launching base 2. According to the writer, Mr. X _______. A. told a faithful story C. was a talented creator B. was not treated properly D. had a bad reputation
3. The believers think that NASA’s publicity campaign is ________. A. proof to hide the truth B. stupid and unnecessary C. needed to convince the non-believers D. important to develop space technology 4. What is implied in the last paragraph? A. NASA should not bother with the non-believers. B. Armstrong was a very private and determined person. C. Armstrong should be as outspoken as Buzz Aldrin. D. NASA should send more astronauts to outer space. 5. The tone of the article is _______. A. angry B. conversational C. humorous D. matter-of-fact
【本文解读】 美国当年的登月活动是否是一场精心策划的骗局?针对一些人的质疑，美国 航空航天局开始了一场行动，旨在确认事实。作者对此不屑一顾，认为是小题大做，毫无 必要。 1．A 推理判断题。第二段提到自从那几个人登月后，再也没有了下文；第三段则直言有人 认为这是一场大骗局。由此可推断一些美国人认为登月是捏造出来的。
阅读理解细节理解 2．D 正误判断题。根据第五段中的“Buzz Aldrin，the second man on the noon”可知 D 项内容正确。 3．B 推理判断题。倒数第二段的中间部分提到相信者认为航空航天局的这一行动与证明地 球是圆的没有什么差别，是在浪费钱财，由此可推断他们认为这种做法愚蠢而且没有必要。 4．A 推理判断题、最后一段的半部分提到美国航空航天局的这笔钱可以有更好的用途，让 Neil Armstrong 现身说法更有说服力，由此可推断美国航空航天局不应该为澄清怀疑者的 言论而费尽周折。 5．C 文章结构题。本文的写作笔调在最后一段体现得最为明显，结合本段中的动词 drag 以 及最后一句的内容可知本文风格“幽默”。 22. “Confidence” is probably one of the most noticeable traits(品质)in the Americans. They show confidence in the way they talk, the way they smile, the way they dress and the way they walk. Living and competing with all these confidence American students, I find it extremely important to be confident as an international student and instructor. As a student, being confident means you should never hesitate to raise your hand whenever a question or a point comes to your mind. Don’t mind if it sounds simple or silly. Otherwise you will never get a chance to speak in class at all. What’s worse, the professors may think you are not prepared for the discussion or you do not have your own opinion on the issue-this is the last comment any graduate would like to receive。 Being confidence for me as a foreign instructor means calmly asking the student to repeat what he or she has said if I did not get it. Pretending to understand what you actually did not may just bring yourself embarrassment or even disgrace. But the time I most need to be confident is when my students come to my office and bargain about the grades I have given for their Speeches。(The course I’m teaching here is Public Speaking). Modesty is a trait highly valued in China, but it won’t be of much help here if you want to survive and succeed in a good American graduate program． 1.To compete with American students it’s very important to A. be quite confident
阅读理解细节理解 B. be polite and friendly C. have more discussions with D. understand what they think about 2. A professor will have the worst opinion of a student who A. gives a silly or simple answer B. tries to seize any chance to speak in class C. shows no interest in the course D. is considered to have no opinion of his own 3. The author is most likely to feel embarrassed if A. he asks a student to repeat what he has said B. the students bargain with him C. he pretends to know what he doesn’t D. he has to give a speech 4． We learn from the second paragraph that A. we should also remain modest in America B. modesty doesn’t help modest in America C. American also like modest people D. modesty can help you through an American graduate program 5. The passage is mainly developed by A. providing examples C. giving different figures . . . .
B. making comparisons D. telling personal experiences
