There’s always someone who’s a bit 37 . The only solution is to reach 38 and measure against what Warren Buffett calls your own inner yardstick. There is no more 39 measure for comparison than who your were yesterday, last week or last decade, when you were at your 40 . Nothing useful ever comes from comparison to others. Either you see yourself as better than someone and you get 41 , or you see someone else as better than you and you feel like all your hard work is for 42 . It is a fool’s game. Not one of us is exactly 43 . The only direct and honest comparison is 44 yourself. Everything else is apples to oranges. My opinion is that you are only 45 to compare yourself to someone else if their life 46 is the same as your own. Good luck finding that 47 . And one thing is for sure. No matter how hard you work and how dedicated you are, there will always be someone who can run a little faster, jump a little higher, score a little better or look a little nicer in a swimsuit. And if there’s not, you can 48 someone is coming up fast 49 you. So how can you always win in life? Become your best 50 .

These crosscultural partnerships, while beneficial in many ways, are also highlighting tensions that expose differences in work experience, pay levels and communication. In the last few years, a growing number of Americans in their 20s and 30s have been heading to China for employment, attracted by its faster growing economy and lower jobless rate. Their Chinese coworkers are often around the same age. But the two groups were raised differently. The Americans have had more exposure to free?market principles. “Young Americans were brought up in a commercial environment,” said Neng Zhao, 28, a senior associate at Blue Oak Capital, a private firm based in Beijing. “We weren’t. So the workplace is a unique learning process for my generation.” Managers hiring workers in China appear to be paying for Western experience. Foreigners tend to earn 10 to 15 percent more than their Chinese counterparts (persons working in similar positions), said Michael Norman, senior vice president at Sibson Consulting, an American firm. That imbalance does not go unnoticed by Chinese workers. “There is definitely the belief that Americans get paid more for the same work.” said Ting Wang, 25, an associate at Wild China, a travel company based in Beijing. On the other hand, Chinese workers have a deeper understanding of the influences, like Confucianism and Communism, which play a part in their country’s culture and economy. It is important and necessary for Americans working in China to adjust, said Mr. Norman, who works on management and work force issues for multinational companies operating in Asia. “In the West, there is such a bonus on getting things done quickly, but when you come to work in China, you need to work on listening and being more patient and understanding of local ways of doing business,” he said. 56. More Americans go to China to take jobs because __________. A. they want to experience different cultures B. Chinese workers are easier to cooperate C. they can't find proper jobs in America D. the economy of China is developing rapidly 57. What does the underlined word “imbalance” in Paragraph 3 refer to? A. Unfair pay levels. B. Different working experience. C. Unequal opportunities. D. Different upbringing environment.

C Why do some people flush when they drink alcohol? This effect is a common reaction to alcohol among East Asians. It affects about 36 percent of Japanese, Chinese and Koreans. For many, even a small amount of alcohol can cause unpleasant effects. Most commonly, their face, neck and sometimes their whole body turn red. People might also feel uncomfortable and sick to their stomach. They might experience a burning sensation, increased heart rate, shortness of breath and headaches. The cause is a genetic difference that they are born with called an ALDH2 deficiency (缺乏). It prevents their bodies from treating alcohol the way other people do. But the effects might be more serious than just a red face. Researchers warn of a link between this condition and an increased risk of cancer of the esophagus (食道) from drinking alcohol. The more alcohol people with this deficiency drink, the greater their risk is. In Japan and South Korea, for example, many people have the deficiency but still drink heavily. Researchers found that these drinkers develop a form of esophageal cancer six to ten times more often than those without the deficiency. Esophageal cancer is one of the deadliest cancers. It can be treated when found early, but once it grows the chances of survival drop sharply. The researchers estimate that at least five hundred forty million people have the deficiency, about eight percent of the world’s population. Philip Brooks is a researcher at the National Institute in the United States. He says it is important to educate people about the link between the alcohol flushing effect and esophageal cancer. He says doctors should ask East Asian patients about their experiences with facial flushing after drinking alcohol. Those with a history of it should be advised to limit their alcohol use. They should also be warned that cigarette smoking works with the alcohol in a way that further increases the risk of esophageal cancer. 62. The under lined word “flush” in Paragraph 1 probably means “_________”. A. walk unsteadily B. turn red in the face C. appear unpleasant D. talk more than usual 63. The second paragraph is mainly about _________. A. the cause of the effects of alcohol B. Asians and alcohol C. the advantages of drinking alcohol D. unpleasant effects caused by alcohol 64. We can infer from the passage that _________. A. about 36 percent of Japanese, Chinese and Koreans are heavy drinkers B. the ALDH2 deficiency may be passed on from generation to generation C. unpleasant effects occur only when people with this deficiency drink a lot D. only some East Asians have the ALDH2 deficiency 65. Esophageal cancer is one of the deadliest cancers because _________. A. it can’t be treated at all B. it is hard to be discovered early C. it is hard to cure once it has developed D. people are usually addicted to alcohol

D I lost my sight when I was four years old by falling off a box car in a freight yard in Atlantic City and landing on my head. Now I am thirty two. I can slightly remember the brightness of sunshine and what color red is. It would be wonderful to see again, but a calamity (灾难) can do strange things to people. It occurred to me the other day that I might not have come to love life as I do if I hadn't been blind. I believe in life now. I am not so sure that I would have believed in it so deeply, otherwise. I don't mean that I would prefer to go without my eyes. I simply mean that the loss of them made me appreciate the more what I had left. Life, I believe, asks a continuous series of adjustments to reality. The more readily a person is able to make these adjustments, the more meaningful his own private world becomes. The adjustment is never easy. I was totally confused and afraid. But I was lucky. My parents and my teachers saw something in me--a potential to live, you might call it--which I didn't see, and they made me want to fight it out with blindness. The hardest lesson I had to learn was to believe in myself. That was basic. If I hadn't been able to do that, I would have collapsed and become a chair rocker on the front porch for the rest of my life. When I say belief in myself I am not talking about simply the kind of self confidence that helps me down an unfamiliar staircase alone. That is part of it. But I mean something bigger than that: an assurance that I am, despite imperfections, a real, positive person; that somewhere in the sweeping, intricate（错综复杂的）pattern of people there is a special place where I can make myself fit. It took me years to discover and strengthen this assurance. It had to start with the simplest things. Once a man gave me an indoor baseball. I thought he was making fun of me and I was hurt. "I can't use this." I said. "Take it with you," he urged me, "and roll it around." The words stuck in my head. "Roll it around! "By rolling the ball I could hear where it went. This gave me an idea how to achieve a goal I had thought impossible: playing baseball. At Philadelphia's Overbrook School for the Blind I invented a successful variation of baseball. We called it ground ball. All my life I have set ahead of me a series of goals and then tried to reach them, one at a time. I had to learn my limitations. It was no good trying for something that I knew at the start was wildly out of reach because that only invited the bitterness of failure. I would fail sometimes anyway but on the average I made progress. 66.We can learn from the beginning of the passage that _______ A. the author lost his sight because of a car crash. B. the author wouldn't love life if the disaster didn't happen. C. the disaster made the author appreciate what he had. D. the disaster strengthened the author's desire to see. 67.What's the most difficult thing for the author? A. How to adjust himself to reality. B. Building up assurance that he can find his place in life. C. Learning to manage his life alone. D. How to invent a successful variation of baseball. 68. According to the context, “a chair rocker on the front porch” in paragraph 3 means that the author __________ A. would sit in a rocking chair and enjoy his life.
第 7 页（共 10 页）
B. would be unable to move and stay in a rocking chair. C. would lose his will to struggle against difficulties. D. would sit in a chair and stay at home. 69.According to the passage, the baseball and encouragement offered by the man _____ A. hurt the author's feeling. B. gave the author a deep impression. C. directly led to the invention of ground ball. D. inspired the author. 70. What is the best title for the passage? A. A Miserable Life B. Struggle Against Difficulties C. A Disaster Makes a Strong Person D. An Unforgettable Experience 第四部分：任务型阅读（共10小题；每小题1分，满分10分） Learning inside the museum Museums have an important role in providing learning services to users, especially school children. Some learning services will provide a range of formal teaching opportunities in the museum; others will work closely with school teachers so that these teachers can make better use of the learning resources available through displays and exhibitions, databases, handling collections and museum staff. In an ideal world, every museum would have at least an learning or educational specialist. He or she would be a trained teacher who also had a good understanding of museums and museum collections, and a strong feeling to help people—especially children—use and learn from them. A museum education specialist is of great value. For most museums the establishment of such a post should be high priority. He or she is the only member of staff with training in psychology of learning, and has considerable experience of analyzing complex concepts and presenting them in a simple way to non-specialist audience. The education specialist is, indeed, the only professional interpreter in the museum. It is clearly reasonable, therefore, for the museum to make full use of the education specialist’s skills, and to involve him or her in all aspects of interpretation and the planning of new displays and exhibitions. Museum learning is not just about teaching children, though children may be its principal audience. Many small museums may not be able to employ an education specialist of their own. For them, there are other possibilities. One is that the local School Service may be able to lend a teacher to the museum, perhaps for two or three years, who could be trained to apply teaching skills to the museum context. Another is that suitable volunteers may be available in the community—perhaps retired teachers, or teachers not presently working—who may be willing to give some of their time to the museum. Another possibility is sponsorship: a large company might be willing to finance the appointment of an education specialist for a few years. An imortant part of the work for the education specialist in a museum is to estabilish strong links with its local schools. He or she is a communicator who has responsibility for keeping contact with the teachers at local schools. He or she should make sure that the schools know waht is going on at the museum and how they can make use of it, and that the museum staff
第 8 页（共 10 页）
know about developments in the schools. Above all, it is their responsibility to find out what schools want, and to ensure that the museum does its best to meet those requirements. There needs to be a continuing dialogue between teachers and museum: the museum needs to know what the teachers are teaching; teachers need to learn how the museum could help, and what resources they could use. The look of wonder on a child’s face can be the reward for a lifetime’s work in museums. The aims of museum learning are to establish contact between people—whether children or adults— and oblects; and not to teach facts, but to sow a seed of interest, a spark (火花)of inspiration.
