Saber Miresmailli was on vacation in London when, caught in a bit of traffic on London Bridge, he decided to take a photo of Tower Bridge.
“I noticed the couple,” he said. “At that moment, I did not see anyone from the wedding party or a photographer with the couple, so I took several pictures. Usually, my pictures are not very good given the fact that I don’t use flash and I don’t stop to compose (构图)—so when I got back after two weeks, I was very surprised to find this one turned out so well.”
Miresmailli said, “I thought to myself, if it was me getting married, I would have wanted the picture.”
So he posted the photo on Facebook and attached a few friends with the hope of finding the couple and passing them the picture. What happened next, he said, “was crazy.”
“I received more than 2,000 requests from perfect strangers and lots of positive and negative emails.” Until this afternoon, almost 230,000 people had shared his Facebook post on the photo.
There’s also been an uncertain identification of the couple. It’s likely that their names are Laura and James. “If it’s the right couple,” Miresmailli said, “they are on their honeymoon in Bali and have no idea about the photo. I believe they will be shocked to find out about their fame”.

In late summer or early fall the large, yellow seed heads of sunflowers will be ripening. If gardeners can keep off the birds and other wildlife trying to eat the seeds, they can have a large harvest. The bright yellow blooms will make a rainbow garden, brightening up any space.
However, planting the sunflower seeds is a skilled job. Plant seeds no deeper than the full length of itself. Smaller sized sunflowers can be spaced a foot apart. Larger varieties will need to be spaced as far apart as three feet. This allows ripe plants enough space for the seed heads to ripen without knocking the ripe seeds off before gardeners have a chance to harvest them.
Most sunflower seeds, especially those with eatable seeds, are large enough to handle without the need for seed sorters. This is why sunflowers make an excellent choice for a children's garden as well. Gardeners will want to mix plenty of soil fertilizers into the ground as sunflowers tend to be heavy feeders.
Sunflowers can be slow starters and the tiny new plants don't seem to grow very rapidly. Gardeners should protect the new plants as they begin to grow. Once they get going, sunflowers are able to out-grow many weeds, making them easier to grow in the home vegetable garden than many other plants.
Most pests and diseases are not a bother to the sunflower, however, more than one gardener has said that their lovely looking plants were ravaged overnight by hungry squirrels, mice or birds. To preserve their harvest, gardeners can cover the ripening seed head with stockings or net cloth to help keep the destroyers off the seeds.
Planting sunflower seeds is easy and can help even the smallest gardener feel successful in their gardening attempts.
28. What is the passage mainly about?
A. How to plant sunflowers. B. Different kinds of sunflowers.
C. Ways to preserve sunflowers. D. Tips on making your garden bright.
29. Why should enough space be left between sunflowers?
A. To prevent birds from eating sunflower seeds.
B. To offer the sunflowers enough sunlight.
C. To protect the ripe seed heads before harvest.
D. To help the sunflowers grow stronger.
30. Why do children love to grow sunflowers in their garden?
A. They want to decorate their garden with sunflowers.
B. The seeds are easy to plant and unnecessary to sort.
C. Sunflowers don’t need too much soil fertilizer.
D. Tiny new sunflowers can grow very fast
31. Which of the following can replace the underlined word “ravaged” in Paragraph 5?
A. Destroyed B. Covered
C. Surrounded D. Removed
A wagging(摇)tail is a form of dog communication. Dogs wag their tell us something about how they’re feeling.
There are probably few people who haven’t seen a dog wagging his tail, and most of the time it’s obvious what the dog is trying to tell you with this kind of body language. It is important, however, that you pay attention to how the dog is holding his tail when he’s wagging it.
Is it relaxed and moving back in forth? Is his body moving along with the wagging? Or is the tail high and moving quickly back and forth while the dog’s body remains fairly erect and stiff (竖直僵硬的)? Where the tail is and the way a dog holds his body while he’s wagging it can give you a clue about what he is trying to communicate.
Most people look at a dog with a wagging tail and assume he is happy. Most of the time this is true, but there are times when a dog wags his tail right before he becomes aggressive. If a dog is wagging his tail and the rest of his body seems relaxed or is moving along with the wagging, you are dealing with a happy and comfortable dog.
If a dog is holding his body erect and stiff while wagging his tail, however, he may be telling you that he’s feeling territorial or uncomfortable with something that is going on around him. In this case, the dog’s tail will be held high and moving back and forth rapidly. This discomfort can be a sign to attack.
This is one reason people sometimes report that a dog was wagging his tail right before he bit someone. So if you come across a dog you don’t know who is wagging his tail, check out what the rest of his body language is telling you before you approach.
32. In what situation do we know a dog is happy?
A. When we have a close look at him.
B. When we try to communicate with him.
C. The dog wags his tail and his body remains relaxed.
D. The dog moves his body along and holds his tail high.
33. A dog’s tail holding high and moving back and forth rapidly shows he may be ________.
A. aggressive B. frightened C. friendly D. relaxed
34. What are people expected to do when meeting a strange dog?
A. Train him to be friendly. B. Judge him by his body language.
C. Ask the owner for help. D. Approach him slowly.
35. What is the best title of this passage?
A. Signs of a Dog’s Bites.
B. A Special Communication.
C. A Pet Dog — Human’s Friend.
D. Dog Feeling Expression —Wagging Tail.
Ebola is a dangerous virus that can cause people to get very sick and even die. The virus is causing the biggest problems in western Africa, where it has spread quickly. 36 But it can get worse and cause life-threatening symptoms, such as bleeding and trouble breathing.

I will never forget watching my son play soccer in his middle school. My son was not a star player. In fact, he didn’t have the opportunity to play for long in each game 61 the rules at that time made sure everyone should participate in the game. In one game, with the score tied and time 62 (run) out, he was playing a defensive position. The other team’s star player got 63 ball but my son was in his way. Somehow, when they met, the result was that the star player 64 (fall) on the ground and my son got the ball. He ran with 65 and had a clear path to the goal. His coach jumped up and down 66 (yell) “go” and most of the parents yelled for victory. When my son kicked the ball several yards towards the goal, he 67 (sudden) stopped and went back to the star player, helping him up. When we all got 68 (enthusiasm) about the game and forgot about basic values of fairness and fun, my son helped a player of the other team. Deeply 69 (touch) after the game, I hugged my son with 70 (proud). I was so glad that my son knew there was something more important than thinning.
