Dear Sunday Globe,
I am writing to tell you about your article Smartphones Make Life Easier in last Sunday’s newspaper. You did an excellent job explaining the good points of smartphones, but you didn’t talk about their bad points at all. So, I hope you’ll let me give your readers some advice on smartphone etiquette (礼仪). The first point I’d like to address is loudness. When you talk on your smartphone in public, please don’t shout. In fact, the microphones in smartphones are very sensitive (灵敏的). So, you can be heard even if you speak quietly.
Another point is about personal space. I don’t think it is polite to make calls in small spaces full of people. This makes others uncomfortable and forces them to listen to your personal business. What’s worse, it stops many face-to-face conversations from ever beginning.
Lastly, doing two things at the same time is dangerous. For example, making calls while driving is a bad habit. Pay attention to the road! Similarly, when staying with your friends, turn off your smartphone and enjoy their company.
1. Amber Jala wrote the letter to ________ .
?A. find a good job?????????????????????????????????????????? B. provide advice
?C. make her life easier???????????????????????????????????? D. buy a smartphone
2. What does the underlined word “address” in Paragraph 2 probably mean?
?A. 致函??????????????????????????? B. 称呼?????????????????????? C. 陈述?????????????????????? D. 选址
3. According to Paragraph 3, what makes people around you uncomfortable?
?A. Discussing face-to-face.???????????????????????????? B. Speaking quietly on your phone.
?C. Minding your own business.??????????????????????? D. Calling in small spaces full of people.
4. What can we learn from the last paragraph?
?A. It is dangerous to drive on the road.
?B. It is easy to start a company with others.
?C. It is bad to turn off our phones while driving.
?D. It is important to use our smartphones properly.

Do you consider failure as an ending? Do you often feel after a failure that you are good for nothing? Then be careful, you are one of them who have bad relationship with failure. And this is the only reason why people often keep themselves away from their success. The power of failure is that it helps us to learn fro our mistakes and missteps and we must consider a failure as an opportunity to grow rather than giving up.
Let's discover the reasons why successful people believe that opportunity lies in every failure.
Disappointment or failure shows that you are trying
The best way to gauge（衡量）your progress at something is to see how many times you failed. In case you haven't failed yet, chances are that you haven't tried hard yet.
Look at all successful men and women throughout our history, they all had one thing in common. That's to say they failed not once but several times before they achieved success. Let's take an example of Thomas Edison: he failed a lot of times to find right filament（灯丝）for his light bulb. Henry Ford had a stronger relationship with failure, which inspired him to quote this unforgettable saying “failure is the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently.”
Achievement lies in looking at failure as an opportunity
Just like every successful person had one thing in common, similarly all unsuccessful persons throughout our history had one thing in common --- their inability to use failure as an opportunity and a tool. If you feel your one failure is your ultimate （终极的）failure, and that feeling of sinking down is known as an ultimate failure, you are pushing yourself away from your expected success. Achievement is all about finding out what mistakes you made, what is the main cause of that failure, and how you are going to make up for it.
Success requires willpower, passion, hard work, intelligence, determination, but all of the above, success requires failure. Use your failure as an opportunity to learn, to become wiser and to reconsider your relationship with failure, the true key to success.
1. According to the writer, why do people keep themselves away from their success?
A. Because they don't set long-term goals.
B. Because they haven't got enough time.
C. Because they can't deal with failure properly.
D. Because they are disappointed in themselves.
2. Why does the writer take the example of Thomas Edison?
A. To explain the reasons for failure.
B. To prove the importance of failure.
C. To take pride in Thomas Edison.
D. To introduce the process of making a light bulb.
3. What can you learn from the passage?
A. Failure can build up your confidence.
B. Successful people seldom failed.
C. Failure is more important than success.
D. Successful people use failure as a tool.

Avoid exciting activities just before sleeping
?? Exciting activities get your thoughts running. At the same time, if you make tomorrow’s plan or read an exciting story before turning off the light, it doesn’t give you enough time to relax before you try to sleep.
Keep the bedroom for sleeping only
?? It’s a bad habit for you to use your bedroom as a place to eat, watch TV, read, talk on the phone, or discuss important matters with your family members. Break that habit to get better sleep.
Don’t go to bed too early
Your body usually lets you sleep only the number of hours it needs. You should decide how many hours you must sleep in order not to experience daytime sleepiness.
Take a warm shower before your bedtime
A twenty-minute warm shower at a temperature of about 45 –50 not only is a great relax at day’s end, but also raises your body temperature by several degrees. The coming drop in temperature of your body will naturally make you feel sleepy.

A serious earthquake can be a terrible experience, and it is easy to forget safety measures(措施) in disorder(混乱). Fortunately, most earthquake safety measures are common sense, but if you forget everything else, remember the following instructions: drop, cover, and hold on. Also, most of earthquake deaths happen after the earthquake, so remember that the danger does not end when the shaking does!
If you stay indoors during an earthquake, move away from unsupported areas and windows. Try to get under a doorway or another area of the building which is held up by strong beams(梁).? Stay under a table or desk only if it is very strong. Do not rush to lifts, because it is far safer to stay where you are. Cover your head with your arms around it and curl(蜷缩) into a ball, and wait for the shaking to stop.?
If you stay outdoors during an earthquake, move to an area which is as open as possible. Don’t move to buildings, electric poles and other objects which may fall during an earthquake and injure you. Protect your head and stay low to the ground till the shaking ends and it is safe to move.?
After an earthquake, many buildings are less strong, although they appear safe. If you stay indoors, move people from the building quickly and help disabled or injured people. Once outdoors, move well away from the building so that if it falls down, you will not be injured. Wait till public safety officials announce that it is safe to stay indoors.
By planning ahead and keeping calm during an earthquake, you can greatly increase your chances of survival(生存) without injury.?

We know that there are too many net bars around us. The Internet is popular and it makes our lives colorful.

If you are interested in sports, you can play basketball or football. We can go to the English Corner. We can practice talking in English there.

Could your best friend make you fat?
Researchers who have studied“networks”of obesity(肥胖) think so：they found that if someone's friend becomes obese, that person's chances of becoming obese increase by more than half.
Brothers or sisters and a husband or a wife also have an influence, although reduced_people whose brothers or sisters became obese were 40 percent more likely to grow obese, while people whose husband or wife became obese were 37 percent more likely to.
“This is the first study to show how obesity spreads through the social network from person to person，”James Fowler of the University of California, San Diego, who worked on the study, told in a telephone interviewing.
The researchers said their findings show that obesity is contagious—not like a virus which is contagious, but in a social sense.
It may help explain why obesity is worsening across the United States, with two?thirds of Americans over?weight and almost a third technically obese.
“It has become very popular to speak of the obesity epidemic.We began to wonder if it is truly an epidemic，”Dr.Nicholas Christakis, a professor of medical sociology at Harvard Medical School in Boston, told the briefing.
“We think that these findings reinforce(加强) the idea that obesity is not just an individual problem but a collective problem，”Christakis said.
“People look around them and see people gaining weight and it might change their attitude about what constitutes an acceptable body size，”he added.“You might say it's OK to be heavier.”
1．The underlined phrase“reduced people”refers to______.
A．the influence of people is smaller and smaller
B．fat persons are having less and less friends
C．the number of fat persons is decreasing largely
D．persons are becoming thinner and thinner
2．What's the new finding of researchers in the passage?
A．Obesity is popular with Americans.
B．Obesity spreads from person to person.
C．Obesity can be spread like a virus.
D．Obesity is becoming an epidemic.
3．In what aspect do your fat friends have an impact on you?
A．They may influence you how to choose a lover.
B．They may assist you in forming a life value.
C．They may change your attitudes towards obesity.
D．They may help you understand what obesity is.
4．From the passage，we can infer that________.
A．it's better not to make friends with fat persons
B．obesity is a kind of disease that can spread
C．most Americans think obesity is a kind of beauty
D．it needs a collective effort to deal with obesity

Have you ever seen a car without a driver? It sounds crazy, but these computer-driven driverless cars will soon be filling roads near you. Companies like Google and Tesla have been designing and testing these cars, and the technology is there.
So how? The cars have sensors（感应器）all around which can find other cars and objects in the road. Road signs are read by cameras, and satellite navigation systems（卫星导航系统）are used so the car knows how to get where you want to go. All you have to do is type in the address! Finally, a central computer system takes in all the information that it receives from the sensors and cameras and works out when to speed up, stop and turn.
Sound like your idea of heaven（天堂）? Sitting back, looking out of the windows and even watching a film or reading a book while ‘driving’ would be possible with this new technology. You wouldn’t have to worry about remembering directions to where you’re going. In addition, computers would also drive more safely than people — they would obey the rules and have quicker action times when in dangerous situations.
However, there are many drawbacks of driverless cars. Computers would have difficulties making ethical（道德的）decisions: if a child ran into the road, would the computer choose to hit the child or turn suddenly and potentially kill the car’s passengers? Moreover, I personally find driving fun –I’d miss never driving a car myself. There would also be many other decisions to be made –should children, or drunk people, be allowed in a driverless car by themselves? Or would there need to be a person with a driving license in the car at all times?
I’m not certain I’d want a driverless car – but it’s only a matter of time before they’ll become more affordable and popular on our roads.
1. When using a driverless car, you need only ????.
A. read the road signs carefully????????? ? B. check the cameras
C. put the address into the computer??? D. remember the directions
2. The third paragraph mainly tells us about the ????of driverless cars.
A. instructions????????? B. standards?????????? C. advantages ???????D. tests
3. The underlined word “potentially” in Paragraph 4 means “??? “.
A. possibly????????? B. successfully???????? C. especially?????? D. naturally
4. What’s the writer’s opinion about future driverless cars?
A. They’ll cause more accidents.????????????B. They’ll be less expensive.
C. They’ll use less energy.???????????????????? D. They’ll run much faster.

There have always been a lot of commonly believed but false(虚假的) ideas about being fat and doing exercise. Some people believe that they can't help putting an weight as they get older, while others hold that if they stop exercising, their muscles(肌肉) will turn into fat. Here are some more myths.
I’ll never lose weight--I come from a fat family
Wrong! While we can't change the body type we are born with, we can't blame our genes(基因) for making us fat. There's plenty of evidence that fatness runs in families, and the main reason is that they share the same habit of eating too much and exercise too little.
I am fat because I burn calories slowly
Wrong! Fatness is not caused by a slow metabolism(新陈代谢). In fact, although fat people consume(消耗)? more energy than slim people, they also fail to realize how much they eat. Keeping a diary can help you work out your daily food intake more accurately(精确地).
Exercise is boring
Wrong! Anything will become boring if you do it again and again. The key is to develop a balanced and varied(各种的) program that's fun as well as progressive(不断进步的). If you enjoy a Sunday walk, take a different mute. If you do yoga(瑜伽), try a tai chi class.
No pain, no gain
Wrong! Exercise is not meant to hurt. Indeed, pain is your body telling you something's wrong, and continuing to exercise could lead to serious injury(伤害). You may experience mild discomfort as you begin to exercise regularly, but this is your body adapting to the positive changes in your lifestyle and the aches should disappear quickly. If they don't, rest and ask for medical advice.
1. What does the writer think about being fat?
?? A. It is the family genes that make people fat.
?? B. People are fat because they consume too little energy.
?? C. A diary of exercise can prevent people from becoming fat.
?? D. It is the result of people's unbalanced lifestyle.
2. According to the writer, how can we make exercise more interesting?
?? A. By taking all kinds of exercise.????? ?????? B. By choosing simple exercise.
?? C. By doing regular exercise.????? ???????????? D. By sticking to outdoor exercise.
3. What is the writer's opinion about "No pain, no gain" in exercising?
?? A. Keeping fit is essentially a painful experience.
?? B. Exercise should be stopped if continuous pain is felt.
?? C. Pain in exercise is a precondition(前提) for reaching your goal.
?? D. Getting used to pain leads to positive changes in your body.
4. The underlined words “adapting to” means “_______” in Chinese.
A. 适应???????????????? B.顺从???????????????????????? C. 摆脱??????????????? D. 陷入
5. What is the purpose of the passage?
?? A. To show the importance of keeping fit.

The World’s Water Shortage
??? The world is not only hungry, but it is also thirsty for water. This may seem strange to you, since nearly 70 percent（百分比）of the earth’s surface is covered with water. But about 97 percent of this huge amount is sea water, or salt water. Man can only drink and use the other 3 percent－the fresh water from rivers, lakes, underground, and other sources（资源）. And we cannot even use all of that, because some of it is in the form of icebergs and glaciers（冰川）. Even worse, some of it has been polluted.
??? However, as things stand today, this small amount of fresh water is still enough for us. But our need for water is increasing（增加）rapidly－almost day by day. Only if we take steps to deal with this problem now can we avoid（避免）a severe（严重的）worldwide water shortage later on.
??? We all have to learn how to stop wasting our valuable water. One of the first steps is to develop ways of reusing it.
??? Today in most large cities, water is used only once and then sent out into a sewer system（下水道）. From there it returns to the sea or runs into underground storage tanks. But it is possible to pipe used water to a purifying（净化）plant. There it can be treated with chemicals so that it can be used again, just as if it were fresh from a spring.
??? But even if every large city purified and reused its water, we still would not have enough. All we’d have to do to make use of the vast reserves（贮备）of sea water in the world is to remove the salt.
??? If we take these steps we’ll be in no danger of drying up.
? 1. The world is thirsty for water because we can only use _________ percent of the water covering the surface of the earth.
??? A. 3??????????? B. more than 3??????? C. less than 3??? ??? D. 97

??? C. There will be no water shortage in the future.
??? D. We should take steps to deal with the water shortage problem.
? 3. To reuse water, we should __________.
??? A. treat it with chemicals
??? B. use it only once
??? C. send it out into a sewer system
??? D. make it flow into underground tanks
? 4. In order to have enough water, we should also make use of _________.

??? C. to pipe used water to a purifying plant
D. to reuse the water
These days the subject of safety on campus is talked about quite often. Some students’ mobile photos are stolen, some students fight with and hurt one another, and others are knocked down by the fast running motorbikes or cars.
These problems are common on campus. I think there are three causes for these. Firstly, some students don’t take care of their own things. They are still young and not careful enough. Secondly, some students want to do everything well. They want to be the winners in exams, and they also want to be the winners in fighting. And thirdly, the campus guards don’t carry on their duties well..
In order to have a safe campus, all the students should be very careful about their own things. They should also mind their behaviors and act politely.

The eyes are extremely precious(宝贝的) to us. That is why we say “Mind your eye!” when telling someone to be careful.
??? Not only human beings and animals have eyes; many things also have “eyes” —the eyes of a ship, the eye of a needle, the eye of a typhoon（台风）, and so on. Some electric apparatuses（设备） also have an eye — a magic eye（电眼）. It is an electronic device that controls something like the automatic opening of a door.
??? Our eyes have a completely different use from that of animals’ and the eyes of things. When you “have an eye to doing something”, it means you “plan to do it”. If you “see eye to eye with your friends in this respect”, it means you agree on that point. If you “have an eye for pictures”, you can tell whether they are good or not.
??? The most important use of our eyes is “opening our eyes”. “To see with half an eye the truth of a situation” is to see if somebody is lying.

Almost every day, we discuss the topic of health, especially for kids. But what is health? “Health” means eating well, getting enough exercise, and having a healthy weight. Let’s read the following rules. They can help you stay healthy.
?? (1) Eat a variety of food, especially fruit and vegetables. We all know that eating fruit and vegetables can help us stay healthy, but many of us only eat our favorite food. Remember that we can only get the nutrition(营养) we need by eating different kinds of food, especially fruit and vegetables.

Sugar only includes calories(热量), not important nutrition.

参考答案1B? 2D? 3D? 4C
In most situations, light helps us see．But nowadays humans are using too much of it so that it is in fact a kind of pollution．
When it comes to looking at the night sky, too much light makes it difficult for us to watch some of life’s most wonderful sights: stars, planets and even galaxies（星系）．
According to scientific research, about 2, 500 stars can be seen by the human eye without using any special equipment（设备）．But because of light pollution, you can only see 200 to 300 stars from today’s countryside, and no more than ten stars from a city．In most big cities, people cannot see the sky filled with stars like they did in their childhood．
Light pollution affects more than just our view of sky．Research shows that lots of nighttime light can harm wildlife, too．
When birds fly to another place over cities, they sometimes get lost by the brightness and fly in circles（圈） until they drop from tiredness．Sea turtles（海龟） need dark beaches for laying eggs, but they can’t find their ideal places because of those bright lights．
Too much light at night may even affect human health, but scientists are not sure of that． They are still learning more．
In order to prevent things from going worse, governments and some organizations are working to reduce light pollution．Many cities and towns have taken action to reduce the use of lights at night．Lights are used only when and where they are truly needed．They also shine lights down at the ground instead of up into the sky and use lower brightness levels．
Hopefully, in the near future, humans can enjoy the clear and beautiful sky again and all the wildlife will live a peaceful and undisturbed life, too．
1．Why does the writer think that too much light is a kind of pollution?
A． Because there are fewer and fewer stars．
B． Because human health has been affected．
C． Because too much light is a waste of energy．
D． Because some of the wildlife can be harmed．
2．Which of the following is NOT mentioned（提到）in this passage?
A． The problems that light pollution has caused．
B． The reason why humans use too much light．
C． The ways that light pollution can be reduced．
D． The reason why fewer stars can be seen than before．
3．Which of the following is true according to the passage?
A． There are about 2,500 stars in the sky．
B． Humans want to do nothing to reduce light pollution．
C． Sea turtles always get lost and die from tiredness．
D． Something has been done to reduce light pollution．
Are you a good receiver? It might sound like a funny question but it is an important one that each of us should ask ourselves.
??? Strangely, most of us are better givers than receivers. We give to our family, our friends and even charities, and opposite to what we might think, most of us are actually very good at giving. But receiving is another matter. We often feel a little uneasy when receiving, although it is not very noticeable. Even praise gets deflected（转向）when it comes our way. When someone praises us for helping him move or clean up the house, we will possibly say, “Ah, it was nothing.” When someone praises the coat we are wearing, we may mention how we bought it at a discount instead of simply enjoying the praise. Actually, the praise is a gift to us, and when we don’t receive it properly, we are dishonoring the giver.
??? Giving is easy, as there is much pleasure in giving, but receiving is an art that takes practice. To be a good receiver requires a sense of close relationship with the giver. It is always a pleasure for a giver to see the gift received in a pleasant way. And this is also the best way for a receiver to honor the giver and give him something back.
??? Many relationships are not so good not because people are not giving to each other, but because they are not receiving from each other well. We should receive the love, respect the praise, and give thanks every time giving happens. We should practice receiving all the pleasures that happen to us every day, instead of taking them for granted. Think of how many simple everyday gifts we are being given all the time: the beauty of nature, art and inspiring（激励人的）conversations. But are we truly receiving them when they happen to us, or are we busy with other matters, not noticing? We should master the art of receiving: accept the gifts life offers us and show our appreciation for them.
??? We are taught that it is better to give than to receive. But this suggests that there is something wrong with receiving. There is nothing wrong with receiving. It is better to give and receive. Let life shower us with gifts, pleasures, joys, surprises, both large and small, and let us take notice of all these things and accept them happily and thankfully. The more we can receive, the more we can give back, but giving more does not necessarily mean receiving more. We must remember it is harder to receive than to give, and try to practice receiving. This practice will benefit us greatly, making us become good receivers as well as good givers.
1. According to Paragraph 2, what do we possibly do when we are praised?
?? A. Honor the giver publicly.
?? B. Show our pleasure clearly.
?? C. Receive the praise uncomfortably.
?? D. Express our disagreement properly.
2. The expression “taking them for granted” probably means “_______”.
?? A. looking for them with expectation???
?? B. depending on them with satisfaction?
?? C. getting away from them without regret
?? D. benefiting from them without appreciation
3. What can we learn from the passage?
?? A. People usually can receive more by giving more.??
?? B. People usually try to receive as much as possible.??
?? C. People should give a gift back when receiving one.??
?? D. People can improve relationships by receiving well.??
4. What is the best title for the passage?
?? A. Be a Good Receiver and Giver
?? B. Better to Give Than to Receive
?? C. Better to Give, Better to Receive
?? D. Be a Receiver Rather Than a Giver
