Last month,I said a final farewell to my lovely old dog,Oscar.I have been missing himterribly.Oscar went everywhere with me.He was my mascot of unconditional love,my lonelinessrelief and one of the big loves of my life.
Many scientific studies have shown that petting a dog and even having one nearby can reducestress.Peter Wedderburn,a writer and veterinary surgeon,once said"Dogs become a central part ofour lives,offering unconditional love,continual company and an alternative to loneliness.A dog isthe ultimate loving companion."
It's no wonder I miss him.Oscar also gave structure to my day.His soft furry rub was my earlymorning wake-up call,plus his walks punctuated my day with a stress-relieving wander by the canalbank.Since his death,I have found myself lying in bed feeling a little low and unmotivated.I'malso spending hours at my desk and not getting out into the light all day.
I didn't want my mood to spiral downwards,so I have started a new,gentle morning practice.I have decided to put my focus on lighting my fire-both literally and metaphorically.Mornings arecold on my canal boat,so what better way to heat things up than by creating a warming ritual(仪式）。
As I piled up old newspapers,placed four logs on the pile and loaded up smokeless coal,Ithought about the"fuel”I wanted to use today-the opportunities and tools available to me.Finally,I struck the match,which symbolized the"spark of inspiration".As the fire started to burn,I wroteabout someone or something that had inspired me as the flames slowly heated up the boat.
Oscar naturally lit up my days and life.Without him,I'm having to be more conscious abouthow I look after my mental health and mood,but I'm now starting to enjoy my new start to themornings.I still miss my lovely dog,but I always end my morning practice by raising my mug ofcoffee in gratitude for the privilege of 13 years of love and light that he brought into my life.Lovenever dies.
58.Why does the author mention scientific studies and quotes from Peter Wedderburn?
A.To introduce the funny stories about Oscar.
B.To illustrate how attachment to dogs forms.
C.To emphasize her sorrow at Oscar's death.
D.To contrast her love for a dog with others'.
59 The underlined phrase"spiral downwards”in Paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to____
A.darken B.lift C.improve D.swing
60.What did the warming ritual mean to the author?
A.It was a new routine which kept her warm in the morning.
B.She viewed it as a ceremony to mourn her beloved Oscar.
C.She intended the ritual to honor those that had inspired her.
D.It symbolized a departure from her downward feelings.
The British government declared that a"proper piece of work”was being carried out to lookinto the possibility of linking Scotland to Northern Ireland via a bridge spanning the Irish Sea.Atthe moment,the leading candidates for the locations of the route are Portpatrick on the Scottishcoast and Larne on the Northern Irish coast.
Length aside,there are a number of other significant challenges that such an enormous projectwould raise.For example,there's the depth of the sea,which at times reaches 300 metres,and thelarge spans that would be required to let any ships pass under the bridge safely,explained Ian Firth,a structural engineer at the Institution of Civil Engineers.
＂One solution might be to use floating foundations."he said."You have a floating pontoon(水上浮台）held below the surface of the water.You still have to get down there and drill holes in therock down below,but you're now just tying it down with some cables.Then the floating platform isheld below the waves-you don't want it at the surface because then you're getting wave action andtidal action.You stand your bridge structures on those floating platforms.That's the sort of thingthat potentially could be doable."
Even so,such a structure would still leave those travelling across it at the mercy of high windsand heavy rain,even taking into account any weather shielding measures that could be fitted.However,there may be another solution.
＂There's another type of floating structure,a submerged(水下的）floating tunnel.It's notthrough the rock but under the water,"said Firth."You attach it down,shall we say 20 metres belowthe water,so that ships can go happily across the top of it,but the thing is actually floating.If you'rein your car,you're driving,in effect,through a tunnel.That is a very interesting,and I think reallyquite potentially practical solution."
But it's early days and there are many factors to consider,such as the ability of the transportlinks either side of the crossing to cope with additional traffic,and the fact that it may be moreefficient to upgrade the existing ferry infrastructure,before any kind of design work could begin.
＂At the moment it is an idea and not much more than that.To begin with,we'd need a pre-feasibility study which looks at what the options are so that we can actually frame the range of afeasibility(可行性）study,"said Firth.After that people like me could go away and turn over what the options are.I believe it's possible.But possible'and'affordable'are two different things.I'm not trying to put numbers to it , but it is eye -wateringly expensive,and nothing like it has beenattempted before.But we're in the business of finding solutions to challenges.We civil structuralengineers are good at that kind of thing."
61.From Paragraphs 1 and 2,engineers may focus efforts on the_of the bridge-to-be.
A.cost B.location C.structure D.reliability
62.What might be the major drawback to the first solution?
A.It is impossible to build a bridge on floating platforms.
B.It takes much labor to tie floating platforms with cables.
C.Wave and tidal action can easily destroy floating platforms.
D.Traffic flow will be subject to severe weather conditions.
63.What can we learn from Firth's words in the last paragraph?
A.Bridge construction is more of an assumption than a detailed plan.
B.Engineers have reached a consensus on the feasibility of the project.
C.They are trying to update the structural design to control costs.
D.Previous similar attempts do help them draw up a feasible plan.
64.Which of the following might be the best title of the passage?
A.Why not float?
B.A bridge too far?
C.Overlooking the Irish Sea
D.Meeting new Scottish friends
Expectations can be tricky and this is no different in the workplace!As I listen to some BabyBoomer managers relate their frustrations about working with Generation Y(Gen Y/millennials (千禧一代）workers,their two main complaints center on their perceptions of the younger generation'swork ethic and sense of entitlement.These managers express that Gen Y workers want the honors ofthe workplace without putting in the sacrifices to earn them.
The Baby Boomer/Generation Y Conflict is a good title that I often use to describe this newmillennium divide between Boomers and Gen Y workers.This conflict comes from different lifeexperiences and generational expectations.Can Baby Boomers and Gen Y just get along?Theanswer is yes!As managers understand and account for the generational differences,they can moveworkplace dynamics from frustration and conflict to productivity and mutual understanding.To do so,we have to first understand Boomers and Gen Y.
Born between 1943 and 1960,Boomers,grew up in an environment of social unrest wherechallenging authority was the norm.As noted in Generations at Work,significant events of theBoomer generation include the civil rights movement,the Vietnam War,the women liberationmovement and the Cold War.Boomers reflect that time in many ways:they tend to think they canchange the world and they want to fulfill their own individual goals and potential.They come to theworkplace confident,prepared to work hard,and expecting to be rewarded for their efforts.
Born between 1980 and 2000,Gen Y workers grew up in an environment of adult attentionwhere monitoring,recognition,and support were the norm.Significant events of their generationinclude technology,protective parenting,school yard violence and multiculturalism.Gen Y workersreflect this time in many ways:they are the most technically talented generation and they are themost spoiled generation.Gien Y workers come to the workplace with confidence and a continuingexpectation of recognition and support independent of results.
With the understanding that Generation Y workers have significantly different life experiencesand expectations,Boomer managers can adjust their own interaction style and move fromfrustration and conflict to mutual understanding and productivity.
Gen Y workers are used to immediate feedback on how they are doing.It comes from theirdigital world where information is shared frequently and quickly.Give them ongoing feedback.Besure to balance the feedback:tell them what they did well as well as how they can improve.
Many Gen Y workers are used to multiple supportive adults in their lives who spoiled andpraised them.They respond better to coaching that focuses on outcomes than a direct managementstyle.
Boomer managers sometimes make the assumption that Gen Y workers are rude ordisrespectful of authority.More often,however,Gen Y workers do not understand normal standardsof workplace behavior.For example,Gen Y workers often expect immediate responses from theirbosses on whatever they communicate to them.This comes from their life experiences.They havehad cell phones at a young age and are masters at communicating through text messages,socialmedia,etc,Further,they are used to calling the adults in their lives and getting immediate attention.They bring these expectations to the workplace.
Boomers are partly responsible for launching some work-and-life balance programs for Gen Yworkers.These younger generations have seen the negative effects that work has produced on someBoomers and decided that they want some balance in their lives.Many do not want to work likewhat Boomers have done.Boomer managers can engage Gen Y workers by supporting workplaceflexibility and work-and-life balance.For these younger generations,work-and-life balance isamong their top working priorities.
Expectations are hard to manage and different generations have different workplaceexpectations!Boomer and Gen Y conflict,however,does not have to continue.When Boomermanagers understand these differences,they can both adapt their own interaction style and educateothers to promote organizational productivity.These generations do not have to continue to collidein the workplace!
65.What can we infer from Paragraph 1?
A.Gen Y workers always dismiss the honors as useless.
B.Boomers complain about the job attitude held by Gen Y.
C.Boomers tend to show little respect for Gen Y's entitlement.
D.Gen Y workers don't care about Boomers'misunderstandings.
66.Paragraphs 3 and 4 are meant to explore
A.the different attitudes towards accepted social norms.
B.the reasons for the frustrations and conflicts at work
C.the shared beliefs that united the two separate generations
D.the outcomes of different parenting on each generation
67.Which of the following could best describe the character of Boomers?
A.Gentle but reserved.
B.Stubborn and jealous.
C.Strict but generous.
D.Ambitious and confident.
68.What do Gen Y workers expect in the workplace?
A.Continual appreciation and assistance unaffected by results.
B.Good results as well as acknowledgement from bosses.
C.Independent advice on how to gain wide recognition.
D.Constant monitoring at work to boost their results.
69. How do Gen Y workers probably want feedback provided?
A.Occasionally by post.
B.Instantly and carefully weighed.
C.Regularly by means of praise.
D.Directly and casually informed.
70.Gen Y workers pay special attention to work-and-life balance because
A.they are accustomed to the comfort of modern life
B.their parents have been paying the same attention to it
C.they don't want to follow in the footsteps of Boomers
D.many sacrifices for honors have been made in the workplace
Millions of people illegally download movies,music and video games every day,and onlinepiracy is a serious and expensive problem.Recent figures show that 90%of files transferred overfile-sharing networks are copyrighted.And it's costing the US economy up to$250 billion a year.Atthe heart of the matter there's a moral question to consider.Is it fair that someone downloads forfree in seconds something that took a team of people months of hard work to create?
What are governments doing about online piracy?Some countries have passed tough new laws.The Spanish government has shut down domestic file-sharing websites and blocked access tooverseas-based sites.Also,governments are going after high-profile pirates.Kim Dotcom,theowner of Megaupload.com,was arrested in New Zealand,who has been accused of piracy becausemany people were using his website to swap copyrighted files.
Are laws and arrests really the best way?Many people aren't so sure.The problem is that filmsare released at different times around the world.Kim Dotcom says that a teenager in Germany,forexample,has to wait six months to see a movie that has already come out in the US.So,instead ofwaiting,they download it illegally.Kim says,"If everybody had access to content at the same time,you wouldn't have a piracy problem."
American company Netflix lets users stream films to their TV.But many complain thatNetflix's selection of movies is too small and that there aren't enough new releases.One reason isthat studios release films on DVD and then,after a few months,make them available for streaming.But what actually happens is one person buys the DVD,they upload it to a file-sharing site andeveryone else downloads it for free.
American law student Srikant believes that if movie studios and record companies want to beatthe pirates,they need to make it just as simple and quick to get content legally."I think peoplewould pay for content if it's reasonably priced and it's available when they want it,"he adds.
This is already happening with music.Spotify is a program that lets you stream music to yourcomputer for just E5 per month.And since it was launched in Sweden in 2009,online music piracyin Sweden has dropped by 25%.The key to its success lies in that Spotify has a large range of music,songs are instantly available and the service is reasonably priced.
Easy access isn't the only possible solution.Economist Glenn MacDonald thinks he has theanswer.He says record companies should give albums away for free and then make money fromtours and merchandising.That's not such a ridiculous idea.The heavy metal group Manowar hasmade a fortune from their tours,which are full of fans who discovered the band by illegallydownloading the music.
Online piracy is a complex and controversial issue.And one thing is for sure:it's not goingaway anytime soon.

Recently a piece of news about a child pouring ink and his parents'education method hasaroused a heated discussion among netizens.A 7-year-old naughty boy poured some ink out of a window on the 7th floor,not only dirtying the clothes on the neighbors'balconies downstairs,butalso staining the windows,walls and floors.Hearing about the situation,the parents made apologies from door to door with their son.Meanwhile,they brought home the neighbors'stained clothes towash and compensated for their losses.In addition,the parents paid for professionals to clean thepolluted walls,in front of which their son was kept standing in the sun and watching them beingcleaned.
The news resonated(共鸣）with netizens in that many families have such children,who oftenmake mistakes.High praise has been given to the couple for the method of educating their son.Instead of beating or scolding him,the couple took their responsibility as parents and punished theirson to make him aware of the consequences of improper behaviour.

第59题 A 词义猜测。根据第三段写失去狗狗让我心情低落“low and unmotivated“可知spiral downwards是相似意思，故选A。
第60题. D 根据第四段“I didn’t want my mood to spiral downwards, so I have started a new, gentle morning practice…by creating a warming ritual”可知这个仪式是为了让作者对低落情绪做告别，开始新的生活，故选D。
第61题 C 第一段提到政府颁布的人物是为了调查是否能够完成桥梁连接项目的可能性，第二段提到的桥梁构建要考虑的水深、大跨度等问题，这些都是与桥梁结构有直接关系的，另外第二段最会“structural engineer”也更加明确了，故选C。
第62题 D 定位到第四段第一句，“Even so, such a structure would still leave those travelling across it at the mercy of high winds and heavy rain” 可知，第一种结构会让穿越它的人们受到大风和暴雨的影响，也就是这种结构并没有很好地考虑天气因素的影响，故选D。C项的destroy用词太绝对了，故D项更合适。
第63题 A 定位到最后一段第一句“At the moment it is an idea and not much more than that” 可知目前此次桥梁建设项目还是一个想法，仅此而已，故选A。
第64题 B 本文是以英国的一个巨大的、具有挑战性的桥梁项目贯穿全文的，全文都在探讨如何从架构上设计、以及提到了费用问题，都是围绕这个巨大的桥梁项目，故选B。
第65题 B 根据文中第一段Boomer managers 对Gen Y的抱怨，可知他们对Gen Y的工作态度不满意，故选B。
第66题 B 第三段第四段主要介绍了Boomer generation和Gen Y的成长背景和由此导致他们的生活工作态度不同，因此在工作中才会出现种种矛盾，故选B。
第67题 D 根据第三段“they tend to think they can change the world and they want to fulfill their own individual goals and potential. They come to the workplace confident…”可知他们拥有野心且自信，故选D。
第68题 A 我们需要不断寻找闪现在第6-8段的一些关键词，比如 ongoing feedback, balance the feedback, supportive, immediate responses, get immediate attention, praise 这些词与A 选项的continual appreciation与assistance贴得更近。B选项是一个两处取信息组合形成干扰选项，原文出现的是results，但是good并没有出现。所以小心分析错误选项特点非常重要。
第69题 B 根据文中第六段“Gen Y workers are used to immediate feedback on how they are doing…Be sure to balance the feedback: tell them what they did well as well as how they can improve”可知他们需要即刻的并且要衡量反馈内容的工作反馈，故选D。
第70题 C 根据文中第九段，“These younger generations have seen the negative effects that work has produced on Boomers and decided that they want some balance in their lives”可知Gen Y是看到了工作对上一代的负面影响，因此想要平衡工作和生活，不想重蹈覆辙，故选C。

Having poured ink out of the window and dirtied the public area alongside the neighbor's clothes, a naughty boy was taught to take responsibility by his parents, whose education method won widespread recognition online. (35 words)
I also sing high praises for the couple's parenting style. Specifically, rather than shrink from the terrible consequences of their son's misbehavior, the couple apologized to the neighbors, compensated for their losses and mended the vandalized areas. It is their graceful manner and sincere attitude that leave a deep impression on the badly-behaved son, who, after a deep reflection, will reform himself and turn over a new leaf. The couple also showcase an unconventional way of educating kids, whose effectiveness might far outweigh the traditional methods like beating, abusing or intimidating.
Should a kid commit mistakes, firstly, parents need fully understand the kid's motive behind. Say, if the mistake is made due to the child's improper cognition or value, parents, as their guardian and first teacher, should in no time correct them. Secondly, proper rules and disciplines should be introduced within the family so that a misbehaved kid will have to face the music after he gets his way. Thirdly, parents should work closely with teachers and instill within kids a correct moral sense. After all, the ability to distinguish between right and wrong will guide children to the right track and shape them into an upright future citizen.

The parents of a naughty boy, who troubled his neighbors by pouring ink out of a window, resolved the dilemma immediately and wisely, for which citizens were loud in their praise.
I applaud the couple for their approaches to dealing with the problem. To begin with, they responded actively to neighbours’ complaints and spared no efforts to solve the problem responsibly, contributing to creating a harmonious community. Additionally, reasonable punishment made their son aware of his misbehavior, which reflected the value of education.
No kids will not make mistakes during their growth. When children make mistakes, parents are supposed to act rationally, identifying the reasons behind them and opting for education methods accordingly. Plus, bear in mind that if punishment is necessary, children’s self-esteem should be maintained. It is therefore desirable not to use physical punishment of any sort but to assist them in mending their ways.
M: Have you got much homework?
W: I’ve got some art.It doesn’t have to be handed in till Friday. My history essay has to be in tomorrow, though, so I’d better finish that this evening.
W: Did I tell you my brother’s working at Scooter—that new designer clothes place?
M: Cool! I’d like to work there as a shop assistant myself.
W: Well, he wanted to do that, but they only needed a security guard. So he was given that job instead.
W: The basketball game starts soon.
M: You want to watch that?
W: Well yeah…
M: I am hoping to watch that documentary on animal communication. It’d beuseful for my project, and you can watch the chat show you love after it.
M: The food’s great and isn’t expensive.
W: Yes. This burger’s as delicious as it looks in the picture, but I thought it would be big.
M: I didn’t like the concert yesterday, mainlybecause the musicians hadn’t practiced enough. They were bad,I think.
W: Really? I think they played well, but I’ve never seen some of those instruments before.
M: It must be interesting to play something new, I guess.
M: These sports shoes are my size, but they only have them in green. That wouldn’t be my first choice of color, but I’ll try them on and see how they feel— that’s the mostimportant thing. My old ones were a bit tight.
W: Those look good on you— the color’s really stylish, but most students at our school are wearing black ones these days.
M: Yes, especially the boys in your class. Anyway, these aremade from a new kind of material and feel really light. They’re great. I hope I’ve got enough money.
W: Don’t worry. My mum just gave me some money. I can lend it to you.
M: I really enjoyed that. I came so close to getting the ball in the net a few times.
W: If you all play as well as that in every game, you should start actuallybeating some of the other teams.
M: I hope so. We’ve all trained really hard this season, and our newcoach has made a big difference. I think I probably played better thanusual because Mum and Dad could both get here for once. I’m always cheerful when they do.
W: Well I’m sure they enjoyed it as much as I did.
M: Thank you for taking me camping with youlast weekend, Aunt Lizzie.
W: It was great, especially when wewent swimming. It was too windy to swim in the sea, butthe lake was great anyway. Perhaps next time we can trythe river.
M: Sleeping in a tent was new for me. I was worriedabout it on the first night, but I soon found out howexciting it is! My brother was very unhappy that he couldn’tcome with us.
W: The campsite was quite big, but it’s a pity there wasnowhere to buy food and things. And the showers there were a bit dirty, but OK.
M: Jasmine, what made you decide to go on a flying experience day?
W: A friend of mine tried it. Even though she’d been frightened, she toldme she’d noticed her house while she was up there. That made me want to look for mine, too. It wasn’t like I wanted to fly planes professionally oranything.
M: How was your flying instructor?
W: She was brilliant. I’d always imagined flying instructorswould be cool and quiet people. Jana was like that before we took off but quite different in the air. She chatted with me and mademe laugh by saying funny things — she said afterwards she did it to helppeople relax.
M: And what about the flight?
W: It wasone of the most exciting things I’ve ever done,although I was kind of expecting that. When we landed, it felt like we’dbeen up there for hours, although it was only about 30 minutes in reality.In some of the online reviews, people said they were tiredafterwards, but I was just the opposite. And it made me want to try other experience days like horse riding. First on my list, though, would be driving a sports car, and after that would come deep-sea fishing.
W: Hello, everyone! I’d like to tell you about this wonderful acting clubI joined recently. The best thing about it is the teacher, Alice Fisher, and she’s appearing in a play at the big theater in town now. She plays a policewoman in that, but you’ll probably know herbetter as the farmer in the series Green Valley that was on last year.
She’s worked as a professional theater actor for about 10 years. As wellas having three years’ experience of appearing in serious drama, she’s spent seven years working in comedy productions, so she has lots ofdifferent talents.
The classes are always fun and are split into two sections. In the firstpart, rather than practicing anything to do with movement of the body,we focus instead on how to control the voice as an actor. Inthe second part, we practice our performance skills.
At the moment, we’re practicing for a play, The Passenger, which will be on at the TownTheater soon. We’re hoping that thislatest one will be as popular as the last production the club did, whichwas called Reality.
We’ve got our last practice for the new play on July 13th, with audiences able to come and see it from July 20th for one week.
