There is a rock wall 17 our yard. But at the edge(边缘) of the yard, some rocks were thrown up onto the ground as if someone were in a hurry to 18 . We called this area our “rock garden”. Whenever we planted flowers or plants, Denise or I would stick them out(伸出去) to bring some 19 to the area.
Last summer I reached the end of the garden and found a tiny little 20 that I could not immediately make sure what it was, I knew I didn’t plant it and Denise claimed that she didn’t either. We decided to let it continue growing 21 we could tell what it was.
Weeks passed and as I made my way back to the 22 plant, it turned out to be a sunflower(向日葵). It had a tall skinny stalk and only one head on it. I decided to 23 it and get the weeds(杂草) around it away. As I moved away the rocks from the area, I noticed something 24 . The sunflower had not started where I saw the stalk begin. It actually had begun under a big rock and grown under and around it to reach the 25 .
That’s when I 26 that if a tiny little sunflower didn’t let a big rock stand in its way of developing, we should have the 27 of doing the same thing, too. Once(一旦) our environment begins to see that we believe in ourselves like that little sunflower, we can get the same nourishment(营养) and growing up as well.
We need to believe in ourselves knowing we have the abilities in 28 our dreams. Like the sunflower, it knew it had the abilities to get out of the difficulty because it trusted in the Universal Truth and believed it would 29 .
Stand tall like the sunflower and be proud of who and what you are and the environment will begin to 30 you. You will find a way to go under or around.

A number of companies have used the wind and the sun to produce energy. Now, one company is using the force of flowing rivers and ocean waves.
The company is based in the U.S. state of Maine. It is called the Ocean Renewable Power Company, or ORPC. The company recently presented the new technology at an energy conference near Washington, DC. Christopher Sauer, the CEO of ORPC says the technology was designed for small, lonely villages that do not have easy ways to get power.
The ORPC technology is an energy generator(发电机)which can be put under water in the river, called RivGen. It works in a series of steps. First, the generator is put in the middle of a steel cage. The cage goes on top of a wide boat with a flat bottom called a pontoon(趸船). Wheels – or, turbines(涡轮机) – are connected to each side of the generator. Once the pontoon boat is fixed to one place, it is flooded with water. The pontoon, cage, and generator all sink to the bottom of the river. There, the river waves turn the wheels and creates as much as 50 kilowatts(千瓦)of power.
CEO Christopher Sauer says the generator is not very tall, so it can work in water areas that are not very deep, but other companies are not able to work in shallow water. And, Sauer says, the turbines are safe for the animals that live in the river. “At the peak of salmon(鲑鱼) season, we had almost two million fish pass by this thing but at the end of all of that, we did not have a single fish die that we knew abou t,” he said. Another feature of the technology he mentioned is “crossflow turbines”. They permit the turbines to move in the same direction, no matter what way the water is flowing. Sauer also says the turbines’ shape permits the generator to harvest power from tidal waves in the ocean. The company’s ocean turbine is called TidGen. It can create up to 600 kilowatts of electricity, enough to power a small settlement(定居点).
Right now, the amount of power TidGen can harvest changes as the strength of the tide goes up and down. But ORPC workers are trying to make the power output steady(稳定的). In time, they want TidGen power to be part of the main energy.
CEO Christopher Sauer estimates ORPC’s current price is about 50 cents per kilowatt-hour. That price does not make the ORPC system competitive with natural gas. However, for small lonely villages, energy from flowing water could be more economical.
41. What can ORPC use to produce energy?
A. The wind. B. The sun.
C. The natural gas. D. The force of flowing river.
42. Where is RivGen when it works?
A. On the river. B. At the bottom of the river.
C. Over the river. D. On the river bank.
43. According to what Sauer said in Para 4, we can know that ___________ .
A. the turbines killed lots of fish
B. salmons can help the RivGen create power
C. the animals that live in the river ma y destroy the turbines
D. the turbines do not make the animals in the river in danger
44. Which of the following word CANNOT be used to describe the RivGen?
A. Safe. B. Perfect. C. Useful. D. Harmless.
45. What can we infer from the passage?
A. ORPC’s generator can work in shallow water.
B. The way the water is flowing can make the turbines move in different directions.
C. TidGen power is still not part of the main energy at present because of its unsteady output.
D. All lonely villages in the U.S. will have easy ways to get power with the help of RivGen.

Nearly 2.4 billion people around the world used a smartphone in 2017. By the end of 2018, more than a third of the global population will be using smartphones. Those numbers -- from Mobile Marketing Magazine -- sound great, don’t they? More people will have more information at their fingertips. However, smartphone technology can be a double-edged sword(双刃剑).
On one hand, it sends us endless information. We don’t have to wait. Our devices ring, ping, vibrate and light up with the latest news from family, friends and around the world.
On the other hand, this immediate way to information may become an addiction(瘾). And it may make some people feel lonely, worried and stressed.
These findings are from a 2018 study from San Francisco State University and have been published in Neuro Regulation.
Erik Peper and Richard Harvey are both health education professors at the university. They led the study.
The two professors asked 135 university students about their smartphone use and their feelings. They found that “students who used their phones the most reported higher levels of feeling—lone ly, stressed and worried.”
But Erik Peper suggests turning off push notifications（推送提醒） and other such alerts on our phones.
The researchers also suggest taking control of when and where you answer a text, a message or an email. You do not need to answer them all. And you certainly don’t need to answer them as soon as you get them.
They also suggest setting limits on the time you spend on smartphones. If you want to catch up with friends on Facebook or WeChat, set aside a small amount of time to it. Schedule periods of the day to focus on important tasks and do not allow technology to take up your time.
(Answer the following questions with no more than six words)
56. What are Eric Peper and Richard Harvey?
57. How do smartphones make people feel according to the study?
58. How many suggest ions are given to fight against smartphone addiction?
59. What did Eric Peper and Richard Harvey ask 135 university students about?
60. When will more than a third of the global population be using smartphones according to Mobile Marketing Magazine?
