Electrical Fire Safety Tips
On any given day,it's likely that most people use several different electrical devices（装置）.With electric devices being so common in modern homes,it's easy to forget that there are very real risks and angers associated with their use.Take the time to go over the rules of safe operation and make sure that everyone in your home is aware of them in order to prevent unnecessary exposure to harms and safety risks.
When an electrical short or spark does happen,it is very important to understand what to do to prevent or put out an electrical fire to keep the damage from spreading.You should,of course,call 911 or other appropriate emergency services immediately in case of electrical injury or fire.The United States Fire Administration (USFA) of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) offers a number of tips for preventing electrical fires.
◎Do not allow children to play close to small or large electrical devices.
◎Replace any tools that send out even slight electric shocks.
◎Replace any light switches that have a tendency to flash.
◎Replace any light switches that are hot to the touch.
◎Avoid overloading extension cords,sockets and plugs.
◎Do not force a three-prong plug into a two-receptacle socket.
◎Know where fuse（保险丝）boxes and circuit（电路）breakers are located as well as how to properly operate them.
◎Never attempt electrical repairs or rewiring' without proper Certification and experience.
◎Do not put water on an electrical fire; use a dry fire extinguisher（灭火器）or baking soda instead.
Even though electricity is ordinary,there is still quite a bit of danger associated with improper use.Carefully observe all safety measures when using electricity to keep yourself and your family safe.
21.Why is it easy to ignore the dangers of electricity?
A.It is safe enough at homes. B.People are too familiar with it.
C.People know well how to use it. D.Few people know the safe rules.
22.What does Paragraph 2 mainly talk about?
A.What to do to keep your home safe. B.When to call a fire station for help.
C.How to avoid electricity failures at home. D.How to deal with electricity failures correctly.
23.When should you change your switch for a new one?
A.It feels hot. B.It is at the reach of your kid.
C.It is not the most advanced one. D.It doesn't have a long power line.
For eight years,American Alex Honnold dreamed about climbing El Capitan in Yosemite National Park without any safety equipment.But whenever Honnold went to the park and looked up at El Capitan,he became frightened.
That changed last Saturday,Honnold,a world-class rock climber,reached the top of the great rock wall in about four hours.He used only his hands and feet.He is the first person ever to climb the 914-meter high granite wall alone and without ropes or safety equipment to catch him if he fell.
Honnold began preparing for his historic climb two years ago.He climbed El Capitan while wearing safety equipment countless times.He tried to memorize every hole he had to hold and the positions of his body.He repeated the climb again and again,until he felt sure enough to try the so-called "free solo" climb.
The most difficult part of the trip is about 700 meters off the ground.At that point,the very small holds in the rock are only big enough for a thumb to fit.But Honnold said the climb was more mentally difficult than physically difficult."Each year I would show up and it would seem just much too daunting,"he said.
Observers say Honnold's climb has pushed the limits in a sport that requires a high level of physical ability, risk-taking and mental strength.
The climb up El Capitan once took climbers several days to complete with the aid of ropes,safety equipment and a partner.But in the past 20 years,speed climbers working with a partner and using ropes have set records in reaching the top.
In January 2015,Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson became the first to "free climb" the Dawn Wall,a very steep climb to the top of El Capitan.They used ropes only to catch them if they fell.They reached the top in 19 days.
Honnold has an extreme ability to control fear and his body for a long period of time.
24.Which of the following can replace the underlined word "daunting" in Paragraph 4?
A.impressing B.attractive C.high D.frightening
25.What did observers think of Honnold's climb?
A.They sang high praise for it. B.They thought it risked the life.
C.They criticized him for its danger. D.They thought it was meaningless.
26.What do you know about the climb of Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson?
A.They took a risk of their lives. B.They did it with other helpers.
C.They did it quickly and safely. D.They reached El Capitan without ropes.
27.What is the best title for this text?
A.Climber overcomes his fear to land on El Capitan. B.Climber reaches top of El Capitan without ropes.
C.None can succeed without a partner. D.No one dares the bare-handed climbing.
Climate change has caused a rise in sea levels.This has increased the amount of salt in fresh water used on coastal farms.As a result farmers are increasingly unable to use fields close to the sea.
Scientists call this process "salinization."（盐碱化）But a farmer in the Netherlands is now using a mixture of sea and fresh water to grow healthy and tasty vegetables.Marc Van Rijsselberghe started with an experiment.He put several kinds of plants in saline.
"We put a lot of plants in the fields and then we put them in fresh water and in sea water,and then we see which variety is surviving and which variety is dying."
Mr.Van Rijsselberghe worked on the project with scientists from the Free University of Amsterdam.He divided a farm into eight irrigated areas.Separate pipes pumped fresh and sea water,and a computer program created water with eight levels of salinity.Computerized measuring devices called "sensors" controlled the water levels and the levels of salinity.Mr.Van Rijsselberghe says he was able to harvest vegetables from most of the eight test areas.He says the vegetables were smaller than those grown in fresh water.But he says they also have more sugar and salt,so they taste better.
The farmer grew carrots,cabbage,onions and beetroot.But he found that potatoes grew better than the other vegetables in the combination of sea and fresh water.Mr.Van Rijsselberghe says four kinds of these potatoes were recently sent to Pakistan,where thousands of hectares of land have been damaged by salinization.Farmers in Pakistan will test the Dutch potatoes to see if they can be grown in those fields.
28.What's the purpose of the author mentioning the climate change in the first paragraph?
A.To show the reason for a rise in sea levels.
B.To introduce the topic of the passage.
C.To tell readers the amount of salt in sea water has increased.
D.To tell readers that farmers are unable to use fields close to the sea.
A.There is much salt in fresh water. B.There is the most salt in fresh water.
C.There is less salt in fresh water. D.There is more and more salt in fresh water.
30.From the passage we can learn that .
A.Marc conducts the experiment all by himself
B.the vegetables have more salt than sugar
C.carrots grow well,as was expected
D.the experiment is to find out which variety is more suitable for sea water
31.Why were potatoes recently sent to Pakistan?
A.Because Pakistan lacks potatoes. B.Because Pakistan has also been damaged by salinization.
C.Because potatoes are in great demand in Pakistan. D.Because the people in Pakistan like eating more potatoes.
Exhausted,covered in mud and desperately hungry,a team of Swedish athletes sat down for a meal as they prepared to take on a dangerous 20-mile journey through the Ecuadorian rainforest.As they opened their canned meat,a tired member,Mikael Lindnord noticed a miserable lost dog staring at him out of the corner of his eye.
Feeling sorry for him,he fed the dog a meatball and thought nothing of it,but as the team stood up to continue their race,the animal started to follow them and he didn't stop.
As the group of four navigated the final two stages of the 430-mile Adventure Racing World Championship,the dog befriended them and was eventually given the name Arthur.Every tiring task the team face,Arthur would do the same.He swam alongside rivers while they kayaked down them,dragged himself up hills during hikes and pulled through knee-deep mud during journeys.
Even when the team tired to get rid of their new member out of concerns for his safety,he refused to leave.This meant when he was tired,they stopped for a break and when he got stuck in the mud,they pulled him out.
After six days the team finished the race,and the dog had suffered.They therefore decided to take him to a vet. During that time Lindord thought to himself that after their experience,they could not leave Arthur,so he decided to adopt him and take him back to Sweden.He applied to the Jordbruksverket (the Swedish Board of Agriculture) and was made to wait to see if his application was successful.
After a few days,the team arrived at the airport with Arthur and boarded the plane with him back home.Lindord ended by saying:"I came to Ecuador to win the World Championship.Instead,I got a new friend."
32.Why did Mikael Lindnord give the dog something to eat?
A.He didn't know why. B.He just showed sympathy to the dog.
C.He wanted the dog to leave them. D.He wanted to save the dog's life.
33.What's the main idea of Para.3?
A.The dog became a member of the team. B.The dog suffered more than the 4 Swedish athletes.
C.The 4 Swedish athletes suffered more than the dog. D.The 4 Swedish athletes wanted to get rid of the dog.
34.What can we know about the dog?
A.He liked the 4 Swedish athletes. B.He liked exploring the rainforest.
C.He was driven out of his owner's house. D.He followed the athletes to thank them for their kindness.
35.What did Lindord mean by saying "I came to Ecuador to win the World Championship.Instead,I got a new friend,"in the last paragraph?
A.He won the World Championship. B.He wanted to get a new friend.
C.He valued the friendship with Arthur. D.He regretted to adopt the dog.
I had a lot of kindness supplies for my trip._36_I thought of two bars of chocolates for the airport bus drivers, and a bag of chocolates for the flight crew（乘务人员）,but I didn't consider pilots!
I gave the first bar of chocolate to the shuttle bus driver who was very happy._37_"Oh,thank you,we have got a long shift,so thank your" Then we were interrupted（打断）by a smiling face from the pilot who asked if they were for him.I laughed and said there could be a special prize if there was a smooth landing at the end.
Well,a strong current（气流）was not ever going to be a smooth landing._38_The plane shook,bounced,lurched, and dropped.We landed on first attempt.Planes arriving at this airport sometimes do a few attempts,so it was good flying to get us down on the first try.
Unusually the cabin was silent through the landing.The cabin crew made a funny comment about it being the quietest landing ever!
_39_I said I had some more chocolates,and asked if she wouldn't mind giving it to the pilot.She said I could go into the cockpit and give it to him myself.I did._40_Those pilots well deserved a treat.I'll know next time to bring a few more kindness supplies.
A.I was a bit tired but happy.
B.He thanked me for the chocolate.
C.The pilot warned us of high current.
D.Everyone was moved by my kindness.
E.Here are some of my kindness supplies.
F.I thanked one of the flight assistants as I got off the plane.

A couple days ago,I decided that the people in my class needed something to pick them up a little bit.It is getting close to_61_end of the school year and everyone seemed like they needed something_62_(make) them smile and bring a little joy into their dull life.
So I teamed up with my teacher to make it happen.I went home and wrote out 21 hand_63_(write) notes,each specifically for one person.I worked on these notes for two_64_(day) and planned everything out_65_(perfect) so that no one would know I wrote them.
Then on that Thursday,my teacher passed out all of the notes to the students,including me to keep it a secret,so people wouldn't think I was responsible for the notes.
I was tremendously happy to see these_66_(reaction) everyone added to the notes.There_67_(be) a lot of smiles and people started sharing their notes_68_each other.
The best part of it all was_69_they looked at each other's notes and said "you know,that note is right,you are a great person" and "You are really smart just like your note says."It was probably the_70_(good) feeling I could have ever gotten to see people sharing and giving each other praise.
Today,I had a very bad luck.I was fighting for fun with some classmates after physical education.I wave my arm with such great strong that my watch got loose and flew off my wrist!Just then,some girls were passing by and a flying watch hit one girl's mouth exactly,these two teeth were knocked off.My mother was called in to deal the matter.We made an apology to the girl but took her to hospital to treat my wound.
I was teaching a great lesson in this incident.I shouldn't have been made sudden and strong actions.From now on,I'll take care to do anything,acting quiet and carefully!

Nowadays the Internet brings great convenience to us. We should make the most of it and use it wisely. We can be aware of what happens both at home and abroad through the Internet. We can also communicate with others, using the Internet. In our studies, we can obtain almost all the information from it. But remember: we should limit our time to use the Internet.
Everything has two sides.It is obvious that the Internet has several disadvantages,which can cause serious problems. First of all, we mustn't devote too much time to playing online games, only to waste our precious time and affect our studies!
