A research project jointly carried out by scientists from several British universities and institutes has drawn people’s attention to the toothbrush again.
Researchers have found that your toothbrush is home to more than 100 million bacteria. But there are hundreds of microorganisms in the mouths and your toothbrush probably won’t make you sick unless there is an unhealthy balance of bacteria. Our immune system can usually take care of bacterial invaders. However, if others use your toothbrush, or you use someone else’s, bacteria can be spread.
They have also found the toothbrush holders are the third-most dirty household items (behind dish sponges and kitchen sinks), thus advocating cleaning the toothbrush holder regularly.
The storage of your toothbrush in your bathroom is also important. Here are some storage tips from the researchers to keep your toothbrush as healthy as possible:
Put your toothbrush as far away as possible from the toilet flushing.
Let your toothbrush dry thoroughly between brushings.
Don’t use toothbrush covers, which can create a perfect breeding ground for bacteria.
Keep your toothbrush upright in a holder. rather than lying down.
Keep toothbrushes separate. If toothbrushes touch, they can exchange and spread bacteria.
There are products available that claim to sanitize（消毒）your toothbrush. While some of these products do kill some bacteria, there is no evidence that using them will reduce your risk of illness, according to the researchers.
They recommend replacing your toothbrush every three to four months or more often if you are sick or if you have a weakened immune system. Children’s toothbrushes may need to be replaced more often than adult brushes.

A. People concerning their heath

On a cold morning in 2015, five-year-old Lucas stood on the bank of Blue Star River, hugging a dead salmon（鲑鱼）against his thick yellow coat. He looked up at his father, Steve, who nodded encouragingly. “Go ahead,” he said. “Put it in.” The young boy dragged his feet forward and held the fish as far as he could into the shallow water. “It’s floating!” Lucas yelled, delighted. For a moment, it’s almost as if the handsome salmon could come back to life.
Lucas’ salmon was just one of 100 or so dead bodies that will land in Blue Star River in a half-hour activity this morning, delivered by dozens of volunteers. None of the salmon will rise from the dead, but Andy, president of the Fish Rescue Society, who has promoted this gathering, is carrying out the resurrection（复活）project of salmon.
Andy led the group’s campaign to recover this urban waterway’s salmon population. “The Fish Rescue Society started exploring the possibility of recovering the salmon in the river in the mid-1990s, and they also focused on river recovery in cities worldwide.”
Andy and his group are devoted to giving the river a full make-over. This monumental repair job, supported by approximately $95,000 of funding from the Pacific Salmon Foundation over the past 15 years, has involved recovering the river-habitat of salmon and preventing it from wearing away. Work on the river’s final section was completed in October 2016.

It puzzled Emily when she was aware of something wrong. She tripped upon men’s clothing “hidden” around her house.
The 38-year-old woman says, at the beginning, she was confused to see quite a few photographs in her phone that she did not remember taking. She was the subject but something was different. Her friends started falling away and she did not know why. Her long-term relationship with her boy friend also ended suddenly.
Now she knows those men’s clothing belonged to one of her “alternatives” and the same person was responsible for her closest friends’ leaving her.
In an interview, Emily said she was not allowed to name “the man” who takes over her body. She was not allowed to name any of her six alternative persons. She said, “I am aware that they are not real people, not physical people. They exist in an imaginative world. However, all those alternatives should be treated with dignity and respect.”
Emily has what’s called Dissociative Identity Disorder（DID分离性身份识别障碍）, a condition characterized by the presence of two or more split personalities that have power over a person’s behaviour.
Her condition resulted from a car accident five years ago. It was August, 2012, when her vehicle broke down on the side of the road. A speeding driver crashed into her car. She wasn’t physically injured but she suffered a mental condition caused by severe brain injury. Shortly after that, she discovered she wasn’t alone inside her head. Switching between personalities happens frequently but there is no real pattern. It can be weeks between incidents then, for whatever reason, it happens more regularly.
One of her alternatives is a smoker, even though she is not. Upon waking, she says there are messages in her head that she is a smoker. She describes her lifestyle as “isolated”.
“People consider DID as tragedy” she says, “I just want to make an effort to tell others that we deserve respect, that we are legally accepted members of society, and we hope to live a normal life. I m not stupid, I’m not spiting or running around people with knives. I have a mental problem but try to live a normal life. I completed a course at Harvard, I wrote a book, I m able to communicate well. I mother my two kids well. I’m not on welfare.”
Actually, she volunteers for an organization helping children. She also spends time speaking out about her condition and has written a book on the subject, hoping to help others who are experiencing the same trouble.
32. Why did Emily’s boy friend break up with her?
A. Because all his friends didn’t like her.
B. Because she remained a heavy smoker.
C. Because she had changeable characters inside her.
D. Because she was physically disabled in a car accident.
33. What does Emily think of her personalities inside her?
A. They also deserve respect.
B. They are gifts given by God.
C. They are too strong to resist.
D. They make her life interesting.
34. What can we know about Emily from the passage?
A. Her mental illness prevented her from attending Harvard.
B. She can control her regularly changing personalities.
C. Her physical injury from a car accident caused DID.
D. She tries to live a positive life and help others.
35. What’s the main idea of the text?
A. It intended to explain what a DID is all about in detail.
B. It introduced a woman suffering DID after a car accident.
C. It reported a car accident and its severe consequence.
D. It described what a terrible life a lonely woman lived.
My friends and I had one-week trip to Bali Island in June three months ago, which was really impressive.
It wasn’t the typical trip by the sea with swimming suit at the beach. 36 The rest of the days we would practice what we had learnt from the video with our coach, first in the pool, and then in the sea. Every day we had to dress ourselves up in the tight diving suit and a jacket with a heavy steel tank on the back
I wasn’t how most people would imagine spending their holiday. 37 Not only did we appreciate beautiful view under the ocean, but we also felt less like tourists and more like professional divers as we learn more skills each day. This was more than just diving in life jackets. We were able lo get away and explore underwater, swimming with turtles and other beautiful sea creatures in the ocean. “There are no mobile phones down there, no emails, no keys to lose, no birthdays to forgt… 38 The ocean is the last quiet place on Earth,” as a US journalist wrote in his book DEEP.
39 When we had to fully concentrate on our breathing, we started to realized how we had been taking it for granted. We had never truly “felt” ourselves breathe before.
40 In fact, my friends and I are already planning another diving trip to the Red Sea in the coming winter holiday. Why not join us?
A. Of course we had dived in the sea before.
B. However, we really enjoyed every minute of it.
C. It’s said that diving can be attractive yet I was unsure about it.
D. The experience also allowed us to get to know ourselves better.
E. All stress, noise and troubles of life are left at the surface of the sea.
F. I’ve become interested in diving and have no doubt about the attraction of diving.
G. Instead, we spent our first morning siting in a room watching teaching videos about diving.
My old friend Judy who worked at our local Wal-fart, had been down a pretty rough road. However, she somehow had maintained her 41 and cheerful outlook on life.
Every time I 42 other, I felt a pull in my heart to do 43 to help. I just couldn’t figure out what it was that I was 44 to do.
Christmas was coming. This morning I was 45 by and turned in. I had Christmas cards in my car from work. I pulled one out and 46 it to her. I placed a gift of cash inside the card – more cash than I had ever given anyone but the 47 in my heart said, “Yes! Do it!”
I went up to customer service and said to the clerk 48 there, “I’m looking for my friend, Judy.”
He said, “OK, she is here. I’ll 49 her for you.”
When my friend 50 I said with a smile “Here is a card for you.”
She asked, “Should I 51 it here?”
“Sure,” I 52 . She opened it and tears came to her eyes. She burst out a cry of 53 “Oh, thank you! I wasn’t going to be able to give my girls Christmas gifts at all this year.”
It was 54 for me to see her happiness and it was also good to know I had finally 55 how I was supposed to help her. 56 she did next made me know I had done the right thing. She called me later to thank me again, 57 “It was too much, so I shared it 58 two other women at work who were not going to have Christmas gifts for their children 59 . I hope you don’t mind.”
My heart swelled with joy knowing I had done something that was passed on right 60 it was meant to go.

I will never forget the day when I went to a coming-of age ceremony. Last month, an unforgettable adult ceremony 61 (hold) for al the senior 3 students in our school. It began at half past two in the afternoon. Decorated by colorful flowers and balloons, the stadium looked 62 (fantastic) beautiful. All of us students were dressed 63 school uniforms with red ribbons on our wrists, showing the energy of youth. We walked into the stadium in high spirits. 64 (accompany) by our parents. Our principal delivered 65 inspiring speech at first, and we received 66 (congratulate) from our teachers. During the ceremony, we expressed our heart-felt gratitude to our parents by 67 (bow) to them. I was moved to tears when I got a photo album from my parents, 68 reminded me of my happy childhood. In the end, we raised our right hands and 69 (make) a serious promise to become reliable and honest citizens. As far as I’m concerned, the ceremony indicates that we should take on more responsibilities to be 70 (independence) and get away from the shelter of our family.

Welcome to China as an exchange student. In your letter, you asked me about extracurricular activities in our school. Now let me give a brief introduction.
We are encouraged to take part in various activities after school, including talent shows, sports meeting, speeches and field trips. For example, last week the Student Union organized a Model United Nations Conference, which was a success. At the conference, students dressed in suits instead of usual school uniform to look formal and serious. We acted as ambassadors from different countries and delivered powerful speeches to discuss current international affairs It was a good chance to develop our communication skills and cooperation spirits.
Look forward to seeing you here.
