Wuitschick hopped out of his seat and grabbed the steering wheel(方向盘) pulling the bus over to the side of the road before pulling the keys from the ignition(点火开关） “I'll give the kid credit for fast thinking. He did the right thing and we're going to do something for him. The kid definitely deserves credit." Milton Police Chief Bill Rhodes cold ABC News.

On March 19 the 82-year-old, former president, hosted his second AIDS-awareness concert. He warned that 25 million people in Africa were already infected with the fatal disease.

He was also a trained boxer and fought in the ring when he was young. “Although I did not enjoy the violence of boxing, I was interested in how one moved

The time capsule was buried in Aspen Colorado, in 1983, shortly after Jobs attended the International Design Conference being held in that city. Organizers called the device the Aspen Time Tube and contributed items like Rubik's cubes(魔方) and some iconic music. Jobs added his own items to the capsule, including the "Lisa" ( also known as an "Apple" )"mouse he used for his presentation at the conference. Younger readers may not recognize the name but the Lisa Apple mouse was one of the first commercial mice released to consumers. The mouse was specially designed for the Apple Lisa computer. It's also the first personal computer to offer users a graphical user interface(图形用户界面) Initially, the plan was to dig up the time capsule in the year2000, but organizers forgot its exact location. Recently, they brought in researchers working with the National Geographic Channel show Diggers to find the device. Eventually they came across the 13-foot-long.1.5-foot-diameter tube, inside which they found a lot of 1980s artifacts(人 工制品）that are still being catalogued. “When the end came off, literally things just poured out.” noted Diggers host Tim Saylor "There must be literally thousands of things in there.” “They had the foresight to put a bunch of stuff in plastic bags." Saylor said. “I could see at least a dozen plastic bags and other items. But I know for sure there got to be photographs in there. People had hand-written things on the back of the photographs, so there will be some really interesting things inside.” Among the artifacts researchers expect to discover inside: a Steve Jobs speech in which the Apple visionary outlines his predictions for future technologies. We should know more about the researchers, discoveries once the Diggers program airs this fall.

第一节 阅读表达（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） 阅读下面的短文，并根据短文后的要求答题。 （请注意问题后的字数要求） Perhaps you are an average student with average intelligence. However, you can receive better grades if you want. Yes, even students with average intelligence can be top students without additional work. Here’s how: Plan your time carefully. Make a list of your weekly tasks. Then make a schedule of your time. Be sure to set aside enough time to complete your normal reading and work assignments. Of course, studying shouldn’t occupy all of the free time on the schedule. Make good use of your time in class. Listening to what the teacher says in class means less work later. Take notes to help you remember what the teacher says. Skim before you read. Look over a passage quickly before you begin to read it more carefully. As you preview the material, you get some idea of the content and how it is organized. Later when you begin to read you will recognize less important material and you may skip some of these portions. Skimming helps double your reading speed and improve your comprehension as well. [5 Review regularly. Go over your notes as soon as you can after class. Review important points mentioned in class as well as points you remain confused. If you know what the teacher will discuss the next day, skim and read that material, too. If you review your notes and textbook regularly, the material will become more meaningful and you will remember it longer. Regular review leads to improved performance on tests. Develop a good attitude towards tests. The purpose of a test is to show what you have learned about a subject. The word won’t end if you don’t pass a test, so don’t worry excessively(过多地) about a single test. There are other techniques that might help you with your study. Improving your studying habits will improve your grades. 56. What’s the main idea of the passage?(no more than 8 words) 57. How many techniques the writer refers in the passage? (no more than 1 word) 58. What should you do if you fail a test? (no more than 4 words) 59. According to the passage, how can an average student improve his/her grades?(no more than 6 words) 60. What does the word “it”(line 4, paragraph 5)probably refer to?(no more than 3 words) 第二节：短文改错（共 10 小题；每小题 1 分，满分 10 分） 下面短文中有 10 处语言错误。请在有错误的地方增加、删除或修改某个单词。 增加：在缺词处加一个漏字符号（∧） ，并在其下面写上该加的词。 删除：把多余的词用斜线（\）划掉。 修改：在错的词下划一横线，并在该词下面写上修改后的词。 注意：1.每处错误及其修改均仅限一词； 2.只允许修改 10 处，多者（从第 11 处起）不计分。 I got up early this morning, so I went to school without breakfast. I walked in so a hurry that I stepped on a banana peel dropped by an old man walk in front of me. As the result, I slipped and fell in my back. I am so angry that I wanted to blame the old man, so I controlled myself at last. I picked out the banana peel, putting it into the dustbin and ran to school. The class had begun, but I was very happy because I did that what I should do to protect our environment. 第二节 书面表达（满分 25 分） 根据下面提示用英语写一篇 120 词左右的短文，标题为：Have a healthy lifestyle 内容如下: （1）许多青少年不注重健康问题的现象及导致的危害； （2）简述你的看法，提出你的建议。 Have a healthy lifestyle
