For years, my time spent in the shower could have got me a mention in Guinness World Records as the shortest time taken to bathe. I hurried up during this process.
One day ,however,while at a party, I heand an artistfriend telling everybody that the his idea came while he was having a shower.“What about you?” He asked.“Don't you get your creative thoughts from the same place?”
“I'm in and out in a hurry,”I told him proudly.“I have no time to waste!”
“What a pity,” he said. “That’s the place where you need to slow down; plenty of great thoughts come from there!” I tried it out. I slowed down the whole process, started enjoying the warm water, taking a little longer to soap myself and even spending more time just enjoying the process, and realized how much I had missed in hurrying up all these years.
A woman told me how much stress her friend was suffering from and how she sought to convince her that she needed to find ways to relax. She gave her a videotape on stress management and relaxation techniques, and encouraged her to watch it right away. Fifteen minutes later, her friend handed back the tape. “It was good， ” she said, “but I don’ t need it. ”
“But it’s a 70 - minute video,” the woman replied. “You couldn’t have watched the whole thing.”
“Yes, I did,” her friend said. “I put it in fast - forward!”
A major social problem of the 21st century is Hurry Sickness. We hurry through work. We swallow fast food. We complain that we don’t have enough time. We race through the days and weeks until one day we look back in amazement and comment, “My god, how the years flew by!” Then we realize the heavy price we have paid for traveling fast.
Symptoms of Hurry Sickness include stress and anxiety, bad relationships, lowered work performance and even disease. Some people don’t survive it. What’s the cure? Slow down, for life is so short and precious that we must live it well.
24. What was the advantage of taking a shower in the eyes of the artist friend?
A. Time was saved. B. Nothing was missed.
C. Great ideas flew away. D. Creative thoughts came.
25. What was the trouble with the woman’s friend?
A. She felt stressed. B. She found the tape useless.
C. She found no way to relax. D. She watched the tape too fast. 26. What is the major trouble people face in the 21st century in the writer’s eyes?
A. People run fast to work. B. Everything is done in a hurry.
C. People don’t have enough time. D. Time flies without being noticed.
26. How can the problem be settled?
A. By pacing down. B. By learning to survive.
C. By developing friendship. D. By performing good work.
It could have been any of us, but it happened to be me. I received a brief 18 months of undivided attention and love as the only child, before three more appeared. The second was a severe blow. No doubt, learning the need to share was important, but I had tasted the life of an only child.
Then came years of requests to look after the siblings (兄弟姐妹）,being urged that, You should be setting a better example, “Again and again the others got away with doing wrong but I didn’t. We each played our roles: the second one who later skipped school to meet boys; the ever so attractive third, the boy who could do no wrong; and finally the surprise appearance of the fourth, seemed certain to be spoiled even now. So that left me: the reasonable, quiet one who got the grades, did the housework and became a chameleon ( 变色龙)—skilled at reading a situation and being what was needed.
Then eventually came the chance to be the first to leave and experience life on the outside,not defined (定义)as the eldest. The moment I had waited for. But now, many years later, being the eldest matters again. It's down to me; it seems, to take the lead in caring for our parents. All the time I was made to learn about sharing; however, when it comes to responsibility, it no longer seems to apply. The others are too busy, too far away, or too unconcerned. So dutifully I travel many times across the country for hours to provide care and support. Requests to my siblings to help out more fall on deaf ears. To me, the dutiful first born, it feels like the right and only thing to do; to be there for our parents as they were for us. Sadly, that feeling isn’t shared by the second, third or fourth.
28. How does the author comment on the four children in the second paragraph?
A. Angrily and Bitterly. B. Angrily and proudly.
C. Bitterly and humorously. D. Humorously and proudly.
29. How did the author develop his social skills?
A. Through hard work. B. With the parents’ help.
C. At the parents’ request. D. In practice for effectiveness.
30. What does the underlined word “it” in the last paragraph refers to?
A. To care for the old. B. To help the young.
C. To live outside alone. D. To travel nationwide.
31. What can we learn from the text?
A.The writer hates to be the eldest.
B. The writer feels proud of his role.
C. The writer is satisfied with his attempt.
D.The writer is regretful about the siblings.
The Maltese Islands are rich in Neolithic ( 新石器时代的）sites. Ggantija in Gozo, Tarxien, and the Hagar Qim/Mnajdra Complex here on Malta’s south coast are perhaps the most well known. These piles of stones are some of the earliest known manmade structures in the world. They are showing their age a bit but what would you expect for buildings that are five and a half thousand years old. My house was built in the year 2000 and is already in bad condition round the edges. These temples are older than the pyramids!
In my opinion the temples are best seen after the visitors have left. Come with me for a late afternoon walk down the hill past Hagar Qim towards the Mnajdra Complex. There are chain link fences around the temples now but we can ignore those and try to image why Maltas earliest people went to the trouble of building these structures on this windy and poor hillside.
Of course the temples would have looked rather different when they were constructed. They may have been decorated with pigments and possibly even roofed with animal skins or other materials. Who knows? We do know that they were changed and added to over a 1,000 - year period or so.
Getting to Mnajdra and Hagar Qim is easiest if you have a car. Or if you don’t mind a hike, you could get a bus to Qrendi （3 km away) or Zurrieq （5 km away) and walk from there. Warning: although the distances are not too great ,walking several kilometers in the Maltese sun can be very hard and possibly dangerous. Take water and sunscreen.
32. What makes the writer wonder about the temples?
A. Their history. B. Their appearance.
C. How they were built. D. When they were built.
33. What are we aware of about the construction of the temples?
A. They have been transformed. B. They look the same as before.
C. They were carefully designed. D. They are not what they used to be.
34. How can we admire the sites getting least sunburn?
A. By hiking there. B. By riding a car.
C. By taking water. D. By taking a bus.
35. Where can we possibly find this article?
A. In a political speech. B. In a historical fiction.
C. In a travel magazine. D. In a geography text book.

Perhaps at one point in time，it was acceptable to start any letter or e-mail with “To Whom It May Concern. ” 36 Starting your cover letter or e-mail for a job this way might give off the impression that you didn’t do your research on who you're writing to. 37 After all, people who address other people by their names when writing and speaking to them tend to be more pleasant.
38 It can be used in letters of recommendation or reference, formal complaints ( 抱怨） made to a company, letters of introduction, and letters of interest.
Grammarly uses the example of needing to write a letter of recommendation for a colleague who will have to make several copies to distribute to interviewers. 39 “In most cases, though, try to narrow your focus rather than cast a broad net,” notes Grammarly.”Ask yourself 'Who does this e-mail concern? If you can honestly answer ‘Anyone, ‘then feel free to use “ To Whom It May Concern.” (These are the things you should never say in your cover letter.)
If you do happen to find that using “To Whom It May Concern” is appropriate, don’t make grammar mistakes, for example, letters or punctuation. 40 .
A. However, it may be interesting.
B. Those times have changed, though.
C. Making mistakes in writing will surely get you low scores.
