This year, cities like Boston, New York, and Chicago have organized massive events celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day. In New York City, hundreds of thousands of people will gather to watch the Saint Patrick’s Day parade—the nation’s largest. It is one of the most watched parades in the world. Last year, almost 2 million spectators and more than 150,000 participants filled the streets. The parade, first held in 1776, is also one of the oldest. Chicago also throws a big celebration. Every year, the Chicago River, which crosses the city, glows green as organizers dump about 40 pounds of fluorescence, a powerful dye, into the water. Boston keeps its parade rolling for three hours or more. It is the nation’s second-largest parade. The city will also salute one of its most famous former residents, Pesident John F. Kennedy, by opening the exhibit “A Journey Home: John F. Kennedy and Ireland” at his official library. Patron Saint lived in Britain in the early fifteenth century, when it was still part of the Roman Empire. He was captured and sold into slavery, in Ireland when he was only 16. He eventually escaped slavery and turned to a life of religious devotion. He trained to become a minister and set out to spread Christianity throughout Ireland. After 30 years as a religious leader, Patrick died on March 17, 1461. Saint Patrick’s Day is always celebrated on March 17. In Ireland, it is an official holiday. 31.

B In the past 10 year, America’s National Basketball Association (NBA) has grown increasingly dependent on the rest of the world to supply players. When Michael Jordan and Larry Bird won gold in Barcelona in 1992, the Americans were praised for teaching the world how to play basketball. This season, however, 20 percent of NBA rosters ( 花名 册 ) will be filled by non-Americans. NBA commissioner David Stern happily embraces the trend. On a visit to Paris in October, Stern outlined his vision for the future, which is likely to see Europe hosting NBA games by 2010. The NBA is now planning to take China by storm. “Our experience in China has been that it is going to be explosive in its growth,” said Stern, The strategy in China is TV. “We’ve made 14 deals in China with local and national networks on Cable and satellite.” The success Chinese centre Tao Ming has paved the way for the NBA marketing blitz in China. The NBA, which is broadcasted in more than 200 countries in 42 languages, will put that to the test in October 2004 when the Houston Rockets play two pre-season games against the Sacramento Kings in Beijing market to compensate for tough times on home soil. “It doesn’t matter where the players come from, all the NBA teams now know that they have to scout (寻找) internationally, ”said Terry Lyons, the NBA’s vice-president of international public relations. “It has increased the level of competition here.” As Frenchman Tony Parker and Argentine Emanuel Ginobili showed in winning championship rings with the San Antonio Spurs last season, many people can earn the respect of their America peers. Others, such as Houston Rockets’ Chinses centre Yao Ming—No.1 draft pick in 2002—and the Detroit Pistons’ 18-year-old Serb Darko Milicic—number two overall in this year’s draft—icons (偶像) in waiting. It is the ultimate (根本) revolution—the rest of the world teaching the US how to play basketball. 36. According to the report, . A. Michael Jordan is still playing a very important role in NBA B. the part played by the foreign players in NBA will be great C. Yao Ming is to play two Pre-season games in NBA D. European countries will host the 2004 NBA games 37. The underlined phrase “take China by storm” has the meaning of . A. NBA intends to make China its “marketing center” B. NBA is planning to set up some training centers in China C. there’ll be a big storm when NBA comes to China to play against the Sacramento Kings D. the NBA’s live basketball games will be broadcasted on all the TVs in China 38. What seems to be the biggest change that is happening to NBA? A. NBA is expecting more foreign players to join the NBA league. B. China’s rapid development in sports affects NBA. C. Yao Ming has taken the place of Jordan. D. The NBA will stop teaching the world how to play basketball. 39. When the writer talked of “home soil”, he was referring to . A. farms in the States B. native Americans C. the NBA training center D. the USA 40. Which of the following can be used as the best title for the passage? A. The non-American basketball players B. NBA is to coming to China C. The foreign ties that bind the NBA D. NBA is making big progress
C WASHINGTON—Tofu (豆腐) and soyaburgers (豆饼) may be coming to American school lunch menus. What will the kids say? “Terrible,” said Greg Dudzinski, 17, of Ripon High School in Wisconsin, as he toured the US capital. “The regular hamburgers are bad enough, so soyaburgers would be a lot worse,” offered Zach Richey, 13, of Scottsboro Junior High in Alabama, another tourist. But the United States government—hoping to reduce the amount of fat that children are eating—has approved(认可) the use of soy as a meat substitute (替代品) in meals for schools and say—care centers. Not all kids dislike the change. Mariel Spano, 17, of Sandy Creek High School in New York, also visiting the capital, said she likes soyaburgers: “There’s less fat, and they’re better for you. They taste the same, and they’re just as good.” The government tried to make soy a meat substitute nearly 20 year ago, but later dropped the idea. At the time, the plan was intended as a cost-cutting move (步骤). US Agriculture Department officials say their purpose now is only to make meals healthier. Schools are likely to increase the amount of soy that is mixed with hamburgers and other foods already on their menus, and they will also be looking to food companies to develop new soy products that children will like. “I can’t see putting tofu on a student’s plate and having a good acceptable,” said Jill Benza, director of food services for the Mesa, Arizona schools. 41. What is the newspaper report mainly about? A. The difficulty in using soy products for US schools. B. Various opinions on soy products for US schools. C. The plan that is made by the US government for school lunch. D. Healthy foods for students in US schools. 42. Where did the interviews most probably take place? A. In food companies. B. In schools. C. In Washington. D. In some other states. 43. We may learn from the text that . A. soyaburgers taste better than hamburgers B. hamburgers are healthier and soyaburgers C. soyaburgers cost less than hamburgers D. hamburgers cost less than soyaburgers 44. What Jill Benza said shows that . A. students have not yet been used to say products B. it is hardly possible to make soy products popular C. he does not like the change in meals for students D. schools are unwilling to change the lunch menus 45. What is the writer’s attitude to the United States government’s decision? A. Opposed. B. Negative. C. Supportive. D. Objective.

第三部分 写作（共两节，满分 25 分） 第一节 阅读表达（共 5 小题；每小题 2 分，满分 10 分） Friends are more important than homes, jobs, clothes and cars. A well-established friendship carries a long history of experience and interaction (相互影响). It is a heritage we should protect. There are good reasons to treasure our friendships. Ironically (讽刺地), the better friends you are, the more likely you’ll face conflict (矛盾). And the result can be what you don’t want—an end to the relationship. The good news is that most troubled friendships can be mended. There’s no better time than the present to make up to old friends. Here’s how to get past the grudge (怨恨) and regain the relationships that bring joy and laughter to your life. Swallow your pride. It wasn’t easy. When a friend hurts you, your instinct (本能) is to protect yourself. But that makes it harder to deal with problems. Most of us become relaxed when differences are brought out in the open. Apologize when you’re wrong—even if you’ve also been wronged. No one should allow himself to be emotionally abused (虐待) by anyone. But over the course of a friendship, even the best people make mistakes. A relationship can
turn to an end if one refuses to make the first move. So it may be best if the wronged person apologizes first. Accept that friendships change. Friendships change as our needs and lifestyles change. It’s healthy to have a host of friends and to sometimes change the position of one or another. Making friends can sometimes seem easy. The hard part is keeping the connections strong during the natural ups and downs that affect all relationships. So consider friendship an honor and a gift, and worth the effort to treasure and raise. Title: 1 Broken Friendship 2 friendships Carrying a long history of experience and interaction 3 5 6 Accept 9 8 can lead to the broken friendship your pride first friendships Get rid of your pride and put the differences in the open Everyone may make 7 Having a host of friends and changing the status of one or another Troubled friendships 4 to mend troubled friendships
Settle well the natural ups and downs affecting friendships, for the friendship is 10 to be treasured and raised.
