Music like Mozart"s and Bach"s shouldn"t be absent. Real riches are of the spirit. And when you"ve brought that spirit up to where classical music feeds it and makes you a little drunk, you have increased your thrills and bettered them. And life is a matter of thrills.

Sports, without which you remain poor, mean a lot in life. No matter who you are, you would be more human, and your house of life would be better supported against the had days, if you could, and did, play a bit.

Whatever rooms you might add to your house of life, the secret of enjoying life is to keep adding.

As has been all too apparent in recent days at Balcombe, few issues cause greater concern than energy policy. Many village communities feel their countryside is being ruined by the power-producing machines of wind farms; yet they never take “direct action”, even though the planning laws put them at a severe disadvantage. And the generous subsidies (财政补贴) , which encourage the expansion of wind power, are not favorable to the village communities and set landowners in conflict with other residents (居民) .

Those who disagree with the rapid expansion of wind farms state that the damage they cause is out of proportion(比例) to the benefits they bring, because their energy output cannot match that of the carbon-based power stations they are supposed to replace. Supporters insist that wind must be part of a mix of renewables, nuclear and carbon, and that the country is committed to meeting EU ( European Union) targets for non-carbon energy generation. ZXXK

Against this background, the fact that there is an argument within the Government over whether to publish an official report on wind farms" impact on the countryside becomes even more extraordinary. The two parties in the coalition (联合) government are in disagreement over what it should say.

We have some advice for the two parties: publish the report, and let the country be the judge. Even if it contains evidence that wind farms are harmful, it will hardly be a pleasant surprise to people who do not like them. Equally, supporters must argue their case by acknowledging the concerns and explaining why they are either misplaced or worthy of much attention.

The suggestion that further negotiations are to take place to produce an “acceptable” report suggests that the politics of coalition government are doing the country harm in a certain way. Given the sensitivities involved, all the information should be available so that people can reach their own conclusions, rather than being left with the suspicion(猜疑)that facts are being replaced by political beliefs.

72. We can learn from the first paragraph that__________.

A. energy policy catches much attention of the public

B. the residents are in favor of the expansion of wind farms

C. many village communities are satisfied with the subsidies

D. the planning laws offer great benefits to the residents

73. Supporters think that the expansion of wind power____.

A. is more rapid than that of carbon-based power

B. guarantees an increase in energy output

C. is expected to be much better than that of nuclear power

D. agrees with EU targets for non-carbon energy generation

74. It can be inferred from the passage that____.

A. an official report will settle the energy problem

B. the two parties are divided over the issue of wind farms

C. the two parties have agreed on a further negotiation

D. political beliefs concerning energy issue go against facts

75. Which of the following reflects the author"s opinion?

A. Increase political impact on energy policy.

B. Release a statement of supporters on wind farms.

C. Let the nation judge the facts about wind power.

D. Leave the two parties to reach their own conclusions.



[阅读选择]There are many other foods that have traveled from South America to the Old World. But some others went in the opposite direction.

[阅读选择]For any given task in Britain there are more men than are needed. Strong unions keep them there. In Fleet Street, home of some of London‘s biggest dailies, it is understood that when two unions quarrel over three jobs the argument is settled by giving each union two. That means 33 per cent over manning, 33 per cent less productivity than could be obtained.

What happens when disputes over job opportunities arise among British unions?

A.Thirty three per cent of the workers will be out of work.

B.More jobs will be created by the union.

C.More people will be employed than necessary.

D.The unions will try to increase productivity.


答案解析:本段开头告诉读者“…there are more men than are needed…when two unions quarrel over three jobs, the argument is settled by giving each union two”,接下来作者又进一步说明其实质,即它意味着“33 per cent over manning, 33 per cent less productivity than could be obtained”。

Nothing could stop Dad. After he was put on disability for a bad back, he  bought a small farm in the country, just enough to grow food for the family. He  planted vegetables, fruit trees and even kept bees for honey.

And every week he cleaned Old Man McColgin"s chicken house in exchange for  manure(肥料). The Smell really burned the inside of your nose. When we complained  about the terrible smell, Dad said the stronger the manure, the healthier the  crops, and he was right. For example, just one of his cantaloupes filled the  entire house with its sweet smell, and the taste was even sweeter.

As the vegetables started coming in, Dad threw himself into cooking. One day,  armed with a basket of vegetables, he announced he was going to make stew(炖菜).  Dad pulled out a pressure cooker and filled it up with cabbages, eggplants,  potatoes, corns, onions and carrots. For about half an hour. the pressure built  and the vegetables cooked. Finally, Dad turned off the stove, the pot began to  cool and the pressure relief valve sprayed out a cloud of steam. If we thought  Dad"s pile of chicken manurewas bad, this was 10 times worse. When Dad took off  the lid, the smell nearly knocked us out.

Dad carried the pot out and we opened doors and windows to air out the house.  Just how bad was it? The neighbors came out of their houses to see if we had a  gas leak!

Determined, Dad filled our plates with steaming stew and passed them around  it didn’t look that bad, and after the first wave had shut down my ability to  smell, it didn’t offend the nose so much, edible, and we drank up every last  drop of soup.

34. Why did Dad clean Old Man McColgin’s chicken house regularly?

A. To earn some money for the family. B. To collect manure for his crops.

C. To get rid of the terrible smell. D. To set a good example to us.

35. What can we infer about Dad’s stew?

A. It is popular among the neighbors. B. It contains honey and  vegetables.

C. It looks very wonderful. D. It tastes quite delicious.

36. What does the underlined word “offend” in the last paragraph mean?

A. To attract B. To upset C. To air D. To shut

37. What can we learn about Dad form the text?

A. He is an experienced cook. B. He is a troublesome father.

C. He has a positive attitude to life. D. He suffers a lot from his  disability.


Across Britain, burnt toast will be served to mothers in bed this morning as  older sons and daughters rush to deliver their supermarket bunches of flowers,  But, according to a new study, we should be placing a higher value on motherhood  all year.

Mothers have long known that their home workload was just heavy as paid work.  Now, the new study has shown that if they were paid for their parental labours,  they would earn as much as£172, 000 a year.

The study looked at the range of jobs mothers do, as well as the hours they  are working, to determine the figure. This would make their yearly income £30,  000 more than the Prime Minister earns.

By analysing the numbers, it found the average mother works 119 hours a week,  40 of which would usually be paid at a standard rate 79 hours as overtime. After  questioning 1, 000 mothers with children under 18, it found that , on most days,  mums started their routine work at 7am and finished at around 11pm.

To calculate just how much mothers would earn from that labour, it suggested  some of the roles that mums could take on, including housekeeper, part-time  lawyer, personal trainer and entertainer. being a part-time lawyer, at $48. 98  an hour, would prove to be the most profitable of the “mum jibs”, with  psychologist(心理学家)a close second.

It also asked mothers about the challenges they face, with 80 percent making  emotional(情感的) demand as the hardest thing about motherhood.

Over a third of mums felt they needed more training and around half said they  missed going out with friends.

The study shows mothers matter all year long and not just on, Mother’s Day.  The emotional, physical and mental energy mothers devote to their children can  be never-ending, but children are also sources of great joy and happiness.  Investing(投入)in time for parenting and raising relationships is money well  spent.

38. How much would a mother earn a year if working as the Prime Minister?

A. £30, 000. B. £142, 000.

C. £172, 000. D. £202, 000.

39. The biggest challenge for most mothers is from .

A. emotional demand B. low pay for work

C. heavy workload D. lack of training

40. What is stressed in the last paragraph?

A. Mothers’ importance shows in family all year long.

B. The sacrifices mothers make are huge but worthwhile.

C. Mothers’ devotion to children can hardly be calculated.

D. Investing time in parenting would bring a financial return.

41. What can we conclude from the study?

A. Mothers’ working hours should be largely reduced.

B. Mothers should balance their time for work and rest.

C. Mothers’ labour is of a higher value than it is realised.

D. Mothers should be freed from housework for social life.


Their cheery song brightens many a winter"s day. But robins are in danger of  wearing themselves out by singing too much. Robins are singing all night一as well  as during the day, British-based researchers say.

David Dominoni, of Glasgow University, said that light from street lamps,  takeaway signs and homes is affecting the birds" biological clock, leading to  them being wide awake when they should be asleep.

Dr Dominoni, who is putting cameras inside nesting boxes to track sleeping  patterns, said lack of sleep could put the birds" health at risk. His study  shows that when robins are exposed to light at night in the lab, it leads to  some genes being active at the wrong time of day. And the more birds are exposed  to light, the more active they are at night.

He told people at a conference, “There have been a couple of studies  suggesting they are increasing their song output at night and during the day  they are still singing. Singing is a costly behaviour and it takes energy. So by  increasing their song output, there might be some costs of energy. ”

And it is not just robins that are being kept awake by artificial light.  Blackbirds and seagulls are also being more nocturnal. Dr Dominoni said, “In  Glasgow where I live, gulls are a serious problem. I have people coming to me  saying `You are the bird expert. Can you help us kill these gulls?". During the  breeding(繁殖)season, between April and June, they are very active at night and  very noisy and people can"t sleep. ”

Although Dr Dominoni has only studied light pollution, other research  concluded that robins living in noisy cities have started to sing at night to  make themselves heard over loud noise.

However, some birds thrive(兴旺)in noisy environments. A study from California  Polytechnic University found more hummingbirds in areas with heavy industrial  machinery. It is thought that they are capitalising on their  predators(天敌)fleeing to quieter areas.

42. According to Dr Dominoni"s study, what causes robins to sing so much?

A. The breeding season. B. The light in modem

C. The dangerous environment. D. The noise from heavy machinery.

43. What is the researchers" concern over the increase of birds" song  output?

A. The environment might be polluted. B. The birds" health might be  damaged.

C. The industry cost might be increased. D. The people"s hearing might be  affected.

44. What does the underlined word “nocturnal” in Paragraph 5 mean?

A. Active at night. B. Inactive at night.

C. Active during the day. D. Inactive during the day.

45. Why do some birds thrive in noisy environments?

A. Because there are fewer dangers. B. Because there is more food to eat.

C. Because there is less light pollution D. Because there are more places to  take shelter.


No one is sure how the ancient Egyptians built the pyramids near Cairo. But a  new study suggests they used a little rock‘n’roll. Long-ago builders could have  attached wooden pole s to the stones and rolled then across the sand, the  scientists say.

“Technically, I think what they’re proposing is possible, ” physicist Daniel  Bonn said.

People have long puzzled over how the Egyptians moved such huge rocks. And  there’s no obvious answer. On average, each of the two million big stones  weighed about as much as a large pickup truck. The Egyptians somehow moved the  stone blocks to the pyramid site from about one kilometer away.

The most popular view is that Egyptian workers slid the blocks along smooth  paths. Many scientists suspect workers first would have put the blocks on  sleds(滑板). Then they would have dragged them along paths. To make the work  easier, workers may have lubricated the paths either with wet clay or with the  fat from cattle. Bonn has now tested this idea by building small sleds and  dragging heavy objects over sand.

Evidence from the sand supports this idea. Researchers found small amounts of  fat, as well as a large amount of stone and the remains of paths.

However , physicist Joseph West think there might have been a simpler way ,  who led the new study . West said, “I was inspired while watching a television  program showing how sleds might have helped with pyramid construction. I  thought, ‘Why don’t they just try rolling the things ? ’” A square could be  turned into a rough sort of wheel by attaching wooden poles to its sides, he  realized. That, he notes , should make a block of stone “a lot easier to roll  than a square”.

So he tried it.

He and his students tied some poles to each of four sides of a 30-kilogram  stone block. That action turned the block into somewhat a wheel. Then they  placed the block on the ground.

They wrapped one end of a rope around the block and pulled. The researchers  found they could easily roll the block along different kinds of paths. They  calculated that rolling the block required about as much force as moving it  along a slippery(滑的)path.

West hasn’t tested his idea on larger blocks, but he thinks rolling has clear  advantages over sliding. At least, workers wouldn’t have needed to carry cattle  fat or water to smooth the paths.

46. It’s widely believed that the stone blocks were moved to the pyramid site  by ______.

A. rolling them on roads B. pushing them over the sand

C. sliding them on smooth paths D. dragging them on some poles

47. The underlined part “lubricated the paths” in Paragraph 4 means____.

A. made the path wet B. made the path hard

C. made the path wide D. made the path slippery

48. What does the underlined word “it” in Paragraph 7 refer to?

A. Rolling the blocks with poles attached. B. Rolling the blocks on wooden  wheels.

C. Rolling poles to move the blocks. D. rolling the blocks with fat.

49. Why is rolling better than sliding according to West ?

A. Because more force is needed for sliding.

B. Because rolling work can be done by fewer cattle.

C. Because sliding on smooth road is more dangerous.

D. Because less preparation on path is needed for rolling.

50. What is the text mainly about ?

A. An experiment on ways of moving blocks to the pyramid site.

B. An application of the method of moving blocks to the pyramid site.

C. An argument about different methods of moving blocks to the pyramid  site.

D. An introduction to a possible new way of moving blocks to the pyramid  site.

It was a hot summer day that found me running down the street with a dollar  in my sweaty hand. The closer I got to Sam & Joe"s Stationery Store, the  more excited I was. After all, a dollar was a tidy sum for an 11-year-old boy in  1961.

Out of breath, I swung open the door and got a blast of cold air that  instantly cooled me off. I was in a place of pure happiness. Sam & Joe"s had  it all一books, candy, toys, baseball cards, puzzles and games. I went directly to  the bar and ordered a bottle of soda. There I sat, considering my next move.

Books always came first. I picked out five titles. Next came the candy, rows  and rows of it. I chose five candy bars, which brought my total to 75 cents.  Then a bottle of cold orange juice, a bag of chips and a pack of Ted Williams  baseball cards. After paying the clerk, I still had 5 cents.

I hurried directly to my backyard, where an apple tree patiently waited for  me. There, sitting in the shade against its strong trunk, I read my books, ate  my candy and drank my orange juice.

As I sat in my own personal heaven, I started thinking about having more.  That"s when a fantastic life-changing idea popped into head: If I could get more  money, could buy more books l liked. buy anything l wanted. That"s how it all  started.

56. How did the boy fell on his way to Sam & Joe’s (no more than 5  words)

“Turn and peep, there’s blood in the shoe;

the shoe is too small, the true bride waits for you.” ZXXK

Realizing he had been tricked, the prince returned the daughter to her mother. The other then had to cut off part of her heel in order to fit into the shoe, with the same result. Only Cinderella’s foot fit perfectly and so the prince chose to marry her. The story ends with the wedding day: as Cinderella’s two stepsisters followed her, pretending to be devoted to her so that they could enjoy the king’s riches, two birds flew by and plucked(啄) out their eyes.

is unable to produce healthy red blood cells. As a result, Isabelle has been receiving blood transfusions (输血) every 4-6weeks since she was 11 months old. A lifetime of regular transfusions can lead to serious medical problems. Her only chance at a normal, healthy life is to have a marrow transplant. Isabelle is an only child, so doctors have started a search for an unrelated marrow donor through The Match Registry. The Mirzaei family asks that you consider helping patients like Isabelle by registering to be a marrow donor and give the gift of life, the gift of blood.

Perhaps you think you could easily add to your happiness with more money. Strange as it may seem, if you"re unsatisfied, the issue is not a lack of means to meet your desires but a lack of desires―not that you cannot satisfy your tastes but that you don"t have enough tastes.

Real riches consist of well-developed and hearty capacities (能力) to enjoy life. Most people are already swamped(淹没) with things. They eat, wear, go and talk too much.They live in too big a house with too many rooms, yet their house of life is a hut.

Your house of life ought to be a mansion (豪宅) , a royal palace. Every new taste, every additional interest, every fresh enthusiasm adds a room. Here are several rooms your house of life should have.

Art should be a desire for you to develop simply because the world is full of beautiful things. If you only understood how to enjoy them and feed your spirit on them, they would make you as happy as to find plenty of ham and eggs when you"re hungry.

Literature, classic literature, is a beautiful, richly furnished room where you might find many an hour of rest and refreshment. To gain that love would go toward making you a rich person, for a rich person is not someone who has a library but who likes a library.
