Obama Still Smokes in Secret

US President Barack Obama has just made life more difficult for cigarette makers. He has just signed a law that will set tough new rules for the tobacco industry. The new law gives the US Food and Drug Administration the power to strictly limit the making and marketing of tobacco products.

At a White House signing ceremony Monday, Obama said that he was among the nearly 90% of smokers who took up the habit before their 18 th birthday.

Obama, who has publicly struggled to give up smoking, said he still hadn’t completely kicked the habit. Every now and then he still smokes in secret.

“As a former smoker I struggle with it all the time. Do I still smoke sometimes? Yes. Am I a daily smoker, a constant smoker? No.” Obama said at a news conference.

“I don'' t do it in front of my lads.I don ?t do it in front of my family.I would say that I am 95% cured, but there are times when I mess up, " he said.

"Once you go down this path, it'' s something you continually struggle with, which is exactly why the law is so important.The new law is not about me, it'' s about the next generation of kids coming up.What we don '' t want is kids going down that path," he said.

    Nearly 20% of Americans smoke and tobacco use kills about 440,000 people a year in the United States due to cancer, heart disease, and other serious diseases.

56.The new law makes life difficult for    .

    A.Obama        B.tobacco industry

    C.White House       D.US Food and Drug Administration

57.What do we know about Obama?

    A.He no longer smokes.

    B.He still smokes as usual. 

    C.He began to smoke at eighteen.

    D.He is trying hard to give up smoking.

58.According to the passage, Obama is most concerned about   .

Thanks a Million, Dad

I was born disabled.A difficult birth, feet first, my head stuck.By my first birthday, I couldn''t stand or walk.

When I was three, the doctor told dad I had cerebral palsy (脑瘫).A loss of oxygen to my brain had destroyed brain signals to the right side of my body.

But no son of my dad'' s was going to be disabled.Every morning before breakfast and every evening before bed, my dad placed me on the bedroom floor to exercise my right leg.The muscles were shrunk and twisted together.Back and forth up and down, my dad pushed and pulled the muscles into shape.

But my dad'' s exercise of passion didn''t stop there.For my 13th birthday, he threw me a special party.When everybody was gone, he brought me to open a large box, it was a-set of boxing gloves.We put them on.My dad kept on beating me mercilessly.Each time I tried to get up, leather kissed my nose, eyes and jaw.I "begged him to stop. He said he beat me to get me ready for the tough world.

That same year, I was the only kid in my neighborhood that wasn''t picked for Little League. Two weeks later.Dad started the Shedd Park Minor League, and every kid played.Dad coached us and made me a pitcher (棒球投手).

The power of my dad'' s love guaranteed I walked and more.In high school, I became a football star.

In 1997, a brain surgeon in San Jose told me I didn’t t have cerebral palsy after all.He explained how and where the doctor'' s forceps (镊子) at birth had damaged my brain.

My dad never knew the whole truth since he passed away years ago.But all that counts is the bottom line.After all his madness, on this Father'' s Day, like every Father'' s Day, I'' m no longer disabled.

59.What caused the author'' s disability?

    A.A failed operation.    B.The doctor''s forceps.

    C.An accident in a game.    D.Shrunken and twisted muscles.

60.What do we learn from the passage?

    A.The author has a talent for boxing.

    B.The author achieved a lot thanks to his father'' s love.

    C.The author became a baseball star with the help of his father.

    D.The author doesn''t think his father should be so strict with him.

61.Paragraph 3 suggests that the author'' s father_.

    A.wouldn''t give up hope easily

    B.believed his son was a normal child

    C.blamed the doctors for his son'' s disability

    D.couldn''t accept the truth that his son was disabled

62.The author wrote the passage to _.

    A.remember his father

    B.encourage disabled children

C

I live in the land of Disney, Hollywood and year - round sun.You may think People ,n such an attractive, fun - filled place are happier than others.If so you have some mistaken ideas about the nature of happiness.

Many intelligent people still think fun equals happiness.The truth is that fun and happiness have little or nothing in common.Fun is what we experience during an act.Happiness is what we experience after an act.It is a deep, long-lasting emotion.

Going to an amusement park or a ball game, watching a movie or television are fun activities that help us relax, temporally forget our problems and maybe even laugh.But they do not bring happiness, because their positive effects end when the fun ends.

I have often thought that if Hollywood stars have a role to play, it is to teach us that happiness has nothing to do with fun.They have constant access to exciting parties, fancy cars, expensive homes, everything that spells "happiness" But in memoir(回忆录) after memoir, they expose Ac unhappiness hidden beneath all their fun: depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, broken marriages and loneliness.

Ask a bachelor why he resists marriage even though he finds dating to be less and less satisfying.If he is honest, he will tell you that he is afraid of making a commitment.For commitment is in fact quite painful.The single life is filled with fun, adventure and excitement.Marriage has such moments, but they are not its most distinguishing features.

Similarly, couples that choose not to have children are deciding in favor of painless fun over painful happiness.They can dine out whenever they want and sleep as late as they want.Couples with babies are lucky to get a whole night'' s sleep.I don''t know any parent who would choose the word fun to describe raising children.

Understanding and accepting that true happiness has nothing to do with fun is one of the most liberating realizations we can ever come to.It liberates time: now we can devote more hours to activities that can truly increase our happiness.It liberates money: buying that new car or those fancy clothes that will do nothing to increase our happiness now seems pointless.And it frees us from envy: we now understand that all those rich and famous people we were so sure are happy because they are always having so much fun actually may not be happy at all.

63.What is the passage mainly about?

    A.Fun and happiness.    B.Success and satisfaction.

    C.Marriage and commitment.    D.Entertainment and responsibility.

64.The author probably agrees that _.

    A.fun creates long - lasting satisfaction

    B.long - standing fun may lead to happiness

    C.fun is short-lived while happiness is long-lasting

    D.fun provides enjoyment while pain leads to happiness

65.What does the author think of marriage?

    A.It ends in pain.       B.It means commitment.

    C.It affords greater fun.       D.It leads to raising children.

66.If one gets the real meaning of happiness, he _.

    A.will start a business      B.won'' t place too much value on money

    C.will seek for freedom       D.won''t devote himself to his family

D

Time and how we experience it have always puzzled us.Physicists have created fascinating theories, but their time is measured by a pendulum (钟摆) and is not psychological time, which leaps with little regard to the clock or calendar.As some-one who understood the distinction observed, "When you sit with a nice girl for two hours it seems like a minute, but when you sit on a hot stove, a minute seems like two hours."

Psychologists have long noticed that larger units of time, such as months and years, fly on swifter wings as we age.They also note that the more time is structured with schedules and appointments, the more rapidly it seems to pass.For example, a day at the office flies compared with a day at the beach.Since most of us spend fewer days at the beach and more at the office as we age, an increase in structured tune could well be to blame for why time seems to speed up as we grow older.

Expectation and familiarity also make time seem to flow more rapidly.Almost all of us have had the experience of driving somewhere we’ve never been before. Surrounded by unfamiliar scenery, with no real idea of when we’ll arrive, we experience the trip as lasting a long time. But the return trip, although exactly as long, seems to take far less time. The novelty of the outward journey has become routine. Thus taking a different route on occasions can often help slow the clock.

When was become as identical as identical as beads(小珠子)on a string, they mix together, and even months become a single day. To counter this, try to find ways to interrupt the structure of your day—to stop time, so to speak.

Learning something new is one of the ways to slow the passage of time. One of the reasons the days of our youth seems so full and long is that these are the days of learning and discovery. For many of us, learning ends when we leave school, but this doesn’t have to be.

67.The underlined sentence in Paragraph 1 is used to show   .

    A.psychological time is quite puzzling

    B.time should not be measured by a pendulum

    C.physical time is different from psychological time

    D.physical theory has nothing to do with the true sense of time

68.Why do units of time fly faster as we grow older?

    A.Our sense of time changes.

    B.We spend less time at the beach.

    C.More time is structured and scheduled.

    D.Time is structured with too many appointments.

69.In Paragraph 3 “novelty” probably means   .

    A.excitement    B.unfamiliarity    C.imagination    D.amusement

70.The purpose of the passage is to   .

    A.give various explanations about time

    B.describe how we experience time psychologically

    C.show the different ideas of physicists and psychologists on time

    D.explain why time flies and how to slow it down psychologically

第二节  (共5小题;每小题2分,共10分)

  根据短文内容,从短文后的七个选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。

A 7.0 magnitude(级)earthquake killed more than 230,000 people in Haiti. Then an 8.8 magnitude quake killed more than 900 people in Chile. And few weeks later, a 6.0 magnitude quake struck rural eastern Turkey, killing at least 57 people.

The earthquakes kept coming hard and fast.   71  It’s not. The problem is what’s happening above ground, not underground, experts say.

  72  They’re rapidly putting up buildings that can’t stand up to earth quakes, scientists believer.

And news reports and better earthquake monitoring make it seem as if earth quakes are increasing all the time.

On average, there are 134 earthquakes a year that have a magnitude between 6.0 and 6.9. So far this year there have been 40 earthquakes—more than in most years for that time period. But that’s because the 8.8 quake in Chile caused a large number of strong aftershocks.

Also, it’s not the number of quakes, but their destructive effects that gain attention. The death is largely due to building standards,   73  Paul Earle, a US seismologist, called for better building standards in the world’s big cities.

Of the 130 cities worldwide with populations of more than I million, more than half are likely to be hit by earthquakes.   74  “If you have a problem feeding yourself, you’re not really going to worry about earthquakes,” said Paul.

The earthquakes made everyone start to think   75  “People are paying attention to the violent planet we’re always lived on. Come back an another six moths if there has been no earthquakes, most people will have forgotten it again,” said US disaster researcher Dennis Mileti.

A.But it won’t last.

B.More people are moving into big cities.

C.Earthquakes don’t kill people, buildings do.

D.There have been more deaths overt the past decade from earthquakes.

E.Many people began to wonder if something terrible is happening underground.

F.While it seems as if the are more earthquakes occurring, there really aren’t.

G.But developing nations with growing populations don’t pay attention to earthquake

preparedness.

One possible version:

A good relationship benefits us all

    As a middle school student,I think it necessary to build a good relationship with our teachers,for it is the teachers who show love and concern for us students in study and life.We students can always seek support and advice from them,from which we benefit and learn a great deal.

    In this case, an ideal relationship between teachers and students is very important.In my opinion,this relationship should be one filled with love,care,understanding, and respect, so we can exchange ideas freely.To build a relationship of this kind, teachers should become our friends while we students ought to trust teachers and express our feelings frankly.Only by joint efforts can we enjoy a warm relationship between teachers and students, and live a happy and harmonious life.

M: Miss Richardson. My daughter didn’t sleep well last night. Will you give her some extra attention today?

W: Don’t worry, Mr. Cruise. All the kids will be taken good care of here.

Text 2

M: Hey Jenny. It’s already April. Aren’t your parents coming to visit this month?

W: Yes, they have planned to but then an emergency turned up and they have postponed their visit for two months.

M: A new book of J.K. Rowling has been released. You must be a fan of hers?

W: I haven’t heard about the news. But you’re right. I am crazy about her works.

W: Excuse me.

M: Yes?

W: Is there a lady’s room around here?

M: There is. But unlucky for you. It has a big “out of use” sign on it.

M: Another piece of meat pie?

W: No, thanks really. I’m on a diet.

M: Please do. You’ve hardly eaten anything.

W: It’s delicious, but I don’t think I ought to.

M: Have you seen Kate recently, Vicky?

W: Yes, I have. I saw her a couple of days ago. She hasn’t been very well in the last couple of weeks.

M: Has she seen a doctor since she’s been ill?

W: Yes, she has. The doctor told her to take it easy for a while, but she hasn’t been taking his advice. She’s as busy as usual.

M: Do you think it useful for me to ask her to have a rest when I go to see her? Or shall we go together?

W: I think you can go yourself and show your concern to her since she sometimes would take your advice. So it’s unnecessary for me to go with you. What’s more, I’ve got some other things to do at the moment.

W: You are not looking very cheerful. What’s the matter with you?

M: Oh, nothing special. I’m just thinking a lot.

W: About the job?

M: About everything, about catching the same train every morning, sitting in the same office all day, watching the same television program...

W: You need a holiday.

M: It wasn’t always like this, you know.

W: What do you mean?

M: Well, our great-great-grandfathers had more fun, didn’t they? I mean, they hunted for their food and grew their own vegetables and did things for themselves. We do the same sort of job for years and years. There’s no variety in our lives.

W: You need a holiday. That’s what the matter is with you.

W: Good morning. This is Burt’s Bicycle Rental.

M: Good morning. A friend of mine suggested I call up to hire some bikes.

W: Oh, yes, a lot of people do so these days.

M: Yes, we’re just on holiday here for a few days and they said it would be a good idea to see the island by bike.

W: Well, it certainly is. And most people rent a motorbike because you can get around faster and even go to the beach if you like.

M: If I wanted to hire two motorbikes tomorrow morning for two days, would there be any problem?

W: None at all. May I have your name, please?

M: It’s Green, Arthur Green.

W: And your telephone number?

M: I’m at the Holiday Sun Hotel. My number is 0708112.I’m in room 1203. By the way, is your bike rental shop at No. 100 Teckman Street?

W: That’s right.

M: Thank you. Bye.

W: Professor Hopkins. May I have a word with you?

M: Sure, Meg. What’s up?

W: I got a C for my report. I am wondering what I have done wrong. You know I have put a lot of time and energy to the report.

M: Well, Meg. I understand you have made much effort on the report. Maybe that’s why you are two days late to hand in the report. The due day is September 3rd.

W: Yes, Professor. I am sorry about that.

M: And this report is about the success of the Starbucks Coffee. In your report, you have mentioned the company’s management, selections of stores and service. But I am surprised that you didn’t mention anything about its coffee. It’s a coffee shop, Meg. Isn’t the taste of its coffee the most important thing to its success?

W: Yeah, I guess I have made a mistake by leaving it out.

M: And figures are important too. You also need to add an actual figure such as the monthly sales.

W: You are quite right professor. 

M: And why not do more research, look for some figures and write the report again.

W: Are you giving me another chance, professor?

M: Seems like I am.

Last August Susan and forty-two other students got wet and dirty while removing six tons of garbage from the river running across their city. They cleaned up the river as part of a weeklong environmental camp. Like one in three American rivers, this river is so polluted that it’s unsafe for swimming and fishing. Still, Susan, who has just completed her third summer on the river cleanup, sees a change in this river. Environmental scientists praise the teenagers for removing garbage that can harm wild life. Water birds, for example, can choke on plastic bottle rings and get cut by scrap metal. When the cleanup started, garbage was everywhere. But this year the teenagers had to hunt for it in their boats. By the end of the six-hour shift, they had removed enough garbage to fill more than two large trucks. “Garbage in the river makes people begin to care about environmental issues,” Susan says. She hopes that when others read that she and her peers care enough to clean it up, maybe they would think twice before they throw garbage into the river.
