It was a vision of a place where children and parents could have fun together. The more Walt dreamed of a "magical park," the more imaginative and elaborate it became. The original plans for the park were on 8 acres next to the Burbank studios where his employees and families could go to relax. Although, World War II put those plans on hold. During the war, Disney had time to come up with new ideas, and creations for his magical park. It was soon clear that 8 acres wouldn't be enough. Finally in 1953, he had the Stanford Research Institute conduct a survey for a 100-acre site, outside of Los Angeles. He needed space to build rivers, waterfalls, and mountains; he would have flying elephants and giant teacups; a fairy-tale castle, moon rockets, and a scenic railway; all inside a magic kingdom he called "Disneyland." The search for the best venue for the park ended in the rural Anaheim, California with a purchase of a 160-acre orange grove near the junction of the Santa Ana Freeway (I-5) and Harbor Boulevard. Construction for Disneyland began on July 21, 1954, 12 months before the park was scheduled to open. Some 160-acres of citrus trees had been cleared and 15 houses moved to make room for the park. However, when the real designing came around, Disney met with inevitable questions. How do you make believable wild animals, that aren't real? How do you make a Mississippi paddle ship? How do you go about building a huge castle in the middle of Anaheim, California? Disney asked his movie studio staff for answers. The design of Disneyland was something never done before. There would be four
uniquely different theme parts: Adventure land , Frontier land , Fantasyland Tomorrow land. Bit by bit, Disneyland got ready for Opening Day. The staff worked around the clock to get ready. But opening day was a terrible disaster. Beside the terrible opening day

A brief introduction to Disneyland B BRISBANE—Australian Olympic chief John Coates has said Greek athlete Katerina Thanou should not be awarded the Sydney Olympics 100 metres gold medal handed back by Marion Jones. Jones, who this week admitted to steroid（类固醇）use in the build up to the Sydney Games, has returned the three gold medals and two bronzes she won in 2000. But Thanou, the silver medalist in Sydney, was herself banned for two years after she failed to appear for a drug test at the 2004 Athens Olympics. “I’d like to think that Katerina Thanou would not be awarded the gold medal,” Coates told the Australian Associated Press on Tuesday, “but there may be some legal difficulties for the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to overcome in order to
用心 爱心 专心 5
reach that conclusion.” Jamaica’s Tayna Lawrence won the 100m bronze medal in Sydney behind Jones and Thanou. Coates also said he expected the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to hand back the medals won by the women's 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams. Two of Jones’s team mates in the 4x100m team which finished third in Sydney, Torri Edwards and Chryste Gaines, have also served doping（兴奋剂）bans. The U.S. women’s 4x100m relay team won the gold medal ahead of Jamaica and Russia. “On the relays, it’s my expectation that the United States Olympic Committee will be required to also hand back the medals won by the other ladies who competed with Jones in the two relays,” Coates said. “That is normal practice.” The United States Olympic Committee (USCO) has publicly apologized to the organizers and competitors of the 2000 Sydney Games and the Australian public for Jones’s actions. As part of the USOC’s apology, president Peter Ueberroth promised that the U.S. would send a clean team to next year’s Beijing Olympics. 56. Thanou get the Sydney gold medal because________. A. she didn’t pass the drug test. B. she served doping ban at Sydney Olympics. C. she didn’t take the drug test at Sydney Olympics. D. she ran the first at Sydney Olympics. 57.

Jones also took part in the women’s 4x100m relay race. D. Thanou should receive Sydney gold medal. 58. Why did Coates expect the USOC to hand back the medals won in the relay races? A. Because the IOC required them to do so.

C The days of elderly women doing nothing but cooking huge meals on holidays are gone. Enter the Red Hat Society －a group holding the belief that old ladies should have fun. “My grandmothers didn’t do anything but keep house and serve everybody. They were programmed to do that,” said Emily Cornette, head of a chapter of the 7-year-old Red Hat Society. While men have long spent their time fishing and playing golf, women have sometimes seemed to become unnoticed as they age. But the generation now turning 50 is the baby boomers, and the same people who refused their parents’ way of being young are now trying a new way of growing old. If you take into consideration feminism(女权主义), a bit of spare money, and better health for most elderly, the Red Hat Society looks almost inevitable(必然 的). In this society, women over 50 wear red hats and purple clothes, while the women under 50 wear pink hats and light purple clothing. “The organization took the idea from a poem by Jenny Joseph that begins: “When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple. With a red hat which doesn’t go,” said
用心 爱心 专心 7
Ellen Cooper, who founded the Red Hat Society in 1998. When the ladies started to wear the red hats, they attracted lots of attention. “The point of this is that we need a rest from always doing something for someone else,” Cooper said. “Women feel so ashamed and sorry when they do something for themselves.” This is why chapters are discouraged from raising money or doing anything useful. “We’re a ladies’ play group. It couldn’t be more simple,” added Cooper’s assistant Joe Heywood. 61．The underlined word “chapter” in paragraph 2 means __________. A．one branch of an organization C．one part of a collection of poems of the baby boomers 62．The “baby boomers” are a group of people who A．have gradually become more noticeable B．tried living a different life from their parents when they were young C．are worried about getting old too quickly D．are enjoying a good life with plenty of money to spend 63．We can infer from the text that .

D．they want to be more like their parents D Believe it or not, optical illusion(错觉) can cut highway crashes. Japan is a case in point. It has reduced automobile crashes on some roads by nearly 75 percent using a simple optical illusion. But stripes, called chevrons(人 字形), painted on the roads make drivers think that they are driving faster than they really are, and thus drivers slow down. Now the American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety in Washington D.C. is planning to repeat Japan’s success. Starting next year, the foundation will paint chevrons and other patterns of stripes on selected roads around the country to test how well the patterns reduce highway crashes. Excessive (too great) speed plays a major role in as much as one fifth of all fatal traffic accidents, according to the foundation. To help reduce those accidents, the foundation will conduct its tests in areas where speed-related hazards (danger) are the greatest curves, exit slopes, traffic circles, and bridges. Some studies suggest that straight, horizontal bars painted across roads can initially cut the average speed of drivers in half. However, traffic often returns to full speed within months as drivers become used to seeing the painted bars. Chevrons, scientists say, not only give drivers the impression that they are driving faster than they really are but also make a lane appear to be narrower. The result is a longer lasting reduction in highway speed and the number of traffic accidents. 66. On roads painted with chevrons, drivers tend to feel that ________. A. they should avoid driving fast. C. they should slow down their speed limit 67. The advantage of chevrons over straight, horizontal bars is that the former ________. A. can keep drivers awake C. will look more attractive

What of the following is true about straight, horizontal bars painted across roads? A. They are suitable only on broad roads. B. They are falling out of use in the United States. C. They cannot be used successfully to traffic circles. D. They are ignored in a long period of time. 70. What’s the best title of the passage? A. a new pattern for painting highways C. a new way of training drivers B. a new way of highway speed control D. a new type of optical illusion D. repeat the Japanese road
