Small islands that bear the brunt of rising sea levels also face the greatest risk of diseases linked to a warmer planet, health leaders said on Saturday, as 13 million medical professionals added to the calls for a global climate pact.
Hundreds of thousands more people will die every year from heat stroke and tropical illnesses unless negotiators in Paris can agree a strong global deal to decrease global warming the Global Climate and Health Alliance said.
The Would Health Organization has warned that the effects of extreme weather on the fight against malnutrition, malaria and diarrhea alone will account for an extra 250,000 premature deaths a year by 2030.
“In the case of small island states like Tuvalu, the health impacts of climate change are palpable,” said the island’s health minister.
“When we are talking about climate change, this is important for the future health of our people, and people everywhere.”
John Usamate, health minister for Fiji, said the island was suffering from climate-related diseases such as dengue fever and chikungunya, a disease transmitted by mosquitoes and unknown in Fiji.
“As the climate changes, we are seeing new infectious diseases and many other health impacts,” he said.
The Global Climate and Health Alliance groups more than 1,700 health organizations and 8,200 hospitals and health facilities.
It is said it had collected 13 million signatories（签字者）from its members, wanting to come to a medical agreement on the need to fight against global warming.
Even without the wider effects of climate change, air pollution from fossil fuels, especially from coal-fired electricity and vehicle emissions（排放）, is a major cause of early death.
In the European Union, more than 400,000 early deaths a year are linked to air pollution that cause respiratory disease and some forms of cancer, the European Commission has found.
25. What is the possible result of global warming?
A. Many small islands will appear.

Born in the Netherlands in 1853, Van Gogh led a simple life in a small town until the age of 16. He then left school and joined a firm of art dealers in the large city of The Hague. He eventually realized that dealing with others’ artwork was not his profession, his true love was to become an artist himself.
He devoted much of his time to learning the fundamentals of drawing. Van Gogh believed that to become a great painter, one must first master the ability to draw. It was only after he was comfortable in this area that he began to use oil paints. That is when he developed a style and talent for color that made him one of the most respected artists of all time.
Van Gogh’s paintings are amazing representations of his view of the world. The colors jump off the canvas（画布）, not only because of their brightness but also because of the brush strokes（笔画）. Van Gogh avoided light, feathery strokes, which would portray typical subjects. Instead, he used his brush and oils to make layers that built the painting until it was almost three-dimensional.
Perhaps one of the most memorable examples of Van Gogh’s use of color and brush style is his painting The Starry Night. The sky swirls（打旋）across the canvas, while the stars shine with unearthly brightness. Each brush stroke creates the image of movement. Under the sky rests a village painted with smaller strokes and finer detail, giving the impression of peace. A large tree in the foreground suggests that the view is enjoyed from the top of a hill, which offers a glance of the beauty of the night sky. The Starry Night shows Van Gogh’s ability to create a powerful image with simple subjects.
Van Gog spent only the last ten years of his life painting. He is believed to have sold only one of the 900 paint he created during those years. Yet Van Gogh today is considered one of the greatest artists of all time. He influence is evident; many painters mimic his style and use of color. His artwork can be found in museums all over the would and is valued in the millions of dollars, a testament to Vincent Van Gogh’s talent.
29. How did Van Gogh learn to paint?
A. By reading many books about art.
B. By familiarizing himself with basic techniques.
C. By closely observing the world around him.
D. By carefully studying the techniques of others.
30. What does the author seem to admire most about Van Gogh’s paintings?
A. The images.
B. The mood.
C. The brushwork.
D. The themes.
31. Why does the author refer to The Starry Night?
A. To praise Van Gogh’s ability.
B. To show Van Gogh’s style of painting.
C. To show Van Gogh’s respect of nature.
D. To honnor the great genius.
In colleges around the country, most students are also workers. The reality of college can be pretty different from the images presented in movies and television. Instead of the students who wake up late, party all the time, and study only before exams, many colleges are full of students with pressing schedules of not just classes and activities, but real jobs, too.
This isn’t a temporary phenomenon. The share of working students has been on the rise since the 1970s, and one-fifth of students work year round. About one-quarter of those who work while attending school have both a full-course load and a full-time job. The arrangement can help pay for tuition (学费) and living costs, obviously. And there’s value in it beyond the direct cause: such jobs can also be critical for developing important professional and social skills that make it easier to land a job after graduation. With many employers looking for students with already-developed skill sets, on-the-job training while in college can be the best way to ensure a job later on.
But it’s not all upside. Even full-time work may not completely cover the cost of tuition and living expenses. The study notes that if a student worked a full-time job at the federal minimum wage, they would earn just over $15,000 each year, certainly not enough to pay for tuition, room, and board at many colleges without some serious financial aid. That means that though they’re sacrificing time away from the classroom, many working students will still graduate with at least some debt. And working full time can reduce the chance that students will graduate at all, by cutting into the time available for studying and attending classes.
There is little reward for attending but not finishing college. Students who end up leaving school because of difficulty in managing work and class are likely to find themselves stuck in some of the same jobs they might have gotten if they hadn’t gone at all. The difficulty of working too much while in school can create a cycle that pushes students further into debt without receiving any of the financial or career benefits.
32.What is the reality of college students?
A. They throw parties a lot.
B. They stay up late every night.
C. They pay no attention to exams.
D. They work besides attending classes.
33.What has caused the increasing number of working students?
A. The need of developing social networks.
B. The lack of summer jobs for young adults.
C. The chance of finding a job after graduation.
D. The expenses of high tuition and living costs.
34.We can learn from the passage that ______.
A. working students are more likely to finish college
B. students can cover their college expenses through working
C. students receive a huge reward for managing work and class
D. dropping out of college may not help students get career benefits
35.What is the best title for the passage?
A. The Difficulties of Landing a Job.
B. The Struggle of Work-School Balance.
C. The Reward of Working While Studying.
D. The Images of Working College Students.

Teach your kids how to reduce their fears. If not kept under control, fear can be powerful. 40 You might encourage positive self-talk, such as saying, “I can handle this” or “I have courage to do this.” Or teach your child to take slow, deep breaths to find courage.

I have been feeling tired these days and often find hard to concentrate on my study. My teacher told me that it was the sign of anxiety. She advised me to read an article about reducing tension and improving brain efficient. I listened to her and found some useful ways in it. I began to form a habit of talking a nap for 15minutes at noon and try to spare 30 minutes a day to get move. A walk on the playground was beneficial. Besides, following the author’s advices, I would play words with friends during class break, which made the brain refreshed and worked better. Having fun with friends is really a good way of becoming relaxed.
