Isn’t it amazing that one person can change your life by sharing one idea at the right time and place? This is certainly what happened in my life.
When I was l8, I left home for El Paso. Upon reaching downtown El Paso, I met a homeless man on the street comer. He stopped me and questioned me as I passed by. He asked me if I was running away from home. I told him, “Not exactly, sir, since my father had given me a ride to the freeway in Houston and given me his blessings while saying. ‘It is important to follow your dream and what is in your heart, Son.’ ”
After a simple conversation, the bum (流浪汉) told me to follow him. He told me that he had something grand to show me and share with me. We walked a couple of blocks until we came upon the downtown El Paso Public Library. The bum first led m e to a table and asked me to sit down and wait for a moment while he looked for something special among the shelves. A few moments later, he returned with a couple of old books under his arms and put them on the table.
He then sat down beside me and said, “There are two things that I want to teach you, young man. Number one is to never judge a book by its cover. ”
He followed with, “I’ll bet you think I’m a bum, don’t you, young man?”
I said, “Well, uh, yes, I guess so, sir. ”
“Well, young man, I’ve got a little surprise for you. I am one of the wealthiest men in the world. I originally come from the Northeast and have all the things that money can buy. But a year ago, my wife passed away, and since then I have been deeply reflecting upon life. I realized there were certain things I had not yet experienced in life, one of which was what it would be like to live like a beggar on the streets. For the past year I have been going from city to city doing just that. So, you see, don’t ever judge a book by its cover, for a cover can fool you.
“Number two is to learn to read, my boy, for there is only one thing that people can’t take away from you and that is your wisdom. ”
At that moment, he reached forward grabbed my right hand in his and put them upon the books he’d pulled from the shelves. They were the writings of Plato and Aristotle—immortal(不朽的) classics from ancient times.

It is back-to-school time in the United States, which for many is bittersweet. The bitter part is saying goodbye to carefree, unscheduled summer days. The sweet part is saying hello to a new school year and school friends.
However, going back to school can also be a stressful time for children and families. Every kid must make the change from easy summer life to routines, schedules and homework. Parents might also stress about spending extra money for a new school year. They often need to pay school fees or to buy new school clothes, sports equipment, musical instruments and school supplies.
Back-to-school stress is different for different ages. Younger children may feel scared to leave their families. Making new friends and dealing with bullying(欺霸行为) can also cause stress for students. Older students may stress about their appearance, grades and getting into college.
A 20l3 survey by the American Psychological Association found that teens in the U. S. are now as stressed as adults. A high percentage of the teens surveyed say they are stressed about getting into a good college (83%) or deciding what to do after high school (69%) and financial concerns for their family (65%)
However, parents, teachers and children can all help to make the transition(过渡) back to school easier.
Mary Anne Aidala began teaching in the New York school system in l962. She retired 39 years later, in 200l. She is an award-winning teacher. She advises parents to focus on the basics—get enough sleep, eat healthy foods, and tum off electronics before bedtime.
“Well, the first thing they (parents) have to do is to get them (children) on a schedule of sleep habits. And they should also make sure they have a good breakfast to keep their brains alert(机敏的). And maybe before they go to sleep every night they should start to read them a story or do something educational; so, they can start to reactivate their brains into using them. ”
28. How do most kids generally feel when their summer holiday is over?
A. Easy and energetic.
B. Excited and nervous.
C. Fully occupied and tired.
D. Scared and stressed
29. Why are some parents stressed out at the beginning of a new school year?
A. They are anxious about school violence.
B. They need to buy more clothes for children.
C. They have an extra expense besides school fees.
D. They are confused at the demand of musical instruments.
30. What can we learn from what Mary Anne Aidala says?
A. Children should form a good habit of going to bed early.
B. Nutrition must be put in the first place in children’s diet.
C. Bedtime stories are helpful in developing children’s good qualities.
D. Parents can do some simple things to help relieve children’s stress.
3l. Which of the following can be the best title for the passage?
A. Lessening school burden on children
B. Living a happy and healthy school life
C. Dealing with back-to-school stress
D. Getting school life back to normal
When we do the same movements with our bodies over and over again, we overuse some muscles. And that overuse can lead to strain(紧张) and injury. Sometimes those problems can come from doing sports. But exercise professionals say they are now seeing another cause for muscle problems: hand-held technology devices (设备).
Staring down at your phone or tablet for long periods of time puts great tension on your neck and spine(脊椎) . Mary people who use tech devices also bend their shoulders forward Experts say this posture (姿势) puts strain on the entire upper body. Muscle strain linked to hand-held technology has become such a common condition that it now has a name: tech-neck.
Kimberly Fielding, an exercise teacher in New York City explains that constantly looking down at our devices creates an unnatural bend in our spine. This can cause nerve pain and other problems. “A lot of the curves of the neck can change, so instead of the neck spine going inward, the curve can be a little bit different and it causes nerve pain and disc herniation(椎间盘突出) and different muscle tension headaches—different things that really can reduce quality of life. ”
Fielding created a class to directly address the problem of tech neck. The class uses different exercises to release tension in the upper body and strengthen back and neck muscles. Fielding says these exercises may feel uncomfortable in the beginning because the neck muscles may have become weak.
However, you don’t need to take a class like Fielding’s. You can take simple steps to improve tech neck. For a quick fix, hold your phone at eye level. At the same time, take breaks from using your technology by standing up and stretching your legs often. Also, give your eyes a break by closing them throughout the day.
32. What does the underlined phrase “tech neck” in Paragraph 2 refer to?
A. The painful neck caused by electronic devices.
B. The strong neck after technical physical exercises.
C. The decoration on the neck with hand-held devices.
D. The cell phone or iPad frequently hung on the neck.
33. What can we learn from Kimberly Fielding’s findings?
A. Muscle tension can lead to spine curving and headaches.
B. Nerve pain and other problems are caused by disc herniation.
C. Staring down at your smartphone does great harm to your neck spine.
D. Quality of life depends in a large part on the condition of neck spine.
34. Why did Kimberly Fielding start the class?
A. To help those suffering from tech neck.
B. To introduce her newly-invented devices.
C. To further study the causes of tech neck.
D. To stress the danger of hand-held devices.
35. What is the purpose of the last paragraph?
A. To invite people to attend Fielding’s class.
B. To urge people to keep away from e-products.
C. To advise those addicts to exercise their necks.
D. To give some practical tips to prevent neck pain.
A new Kenyan law bars the production, sale and even use of polythene(聚乙烯) plastic bags. 36
The secretary of Kenya’s National Environmental Management Authority(NEMA), Judi Wakhungu, told reporters that plastic bags are affecting Kenya’s food and water supplies. “It is a poisonous substance (物质) that we must get rid of, ”she said
37 People often get them when buying products from food stores or other businesses. But experts argue that polythene bags are bad for the environment and public health While the bags are thin, they never really break down into small pieces through natural processes. 38 They have also been blamed for killing animals who eat them or become trapped in them.
NEMA officials have been urging retail (零售) businesses and companies in the capital city to obey the new ban. They are supporting a campaign known as the “take-bag” project. 39
“I hope soon we’ll start seeing people who are carrying out these recycling materials, or alternative bags, which are eco-friendly. All this is creating much more employment than is being lost.” Said Geoffrey Wahungu, the director general of NEMA.
40 In Kenya, two plastic bag importers attempted to overturn the ban in court last week. But their effort failed. The National Association of Manufacturers says the ban will cost the country more than 60,000 jobs. Some producers of plastic bags also oppose the idea of banning bags.
A. Plastic bags can be easily recycled like paper bags.
B. Plastic bags are widely used in daily life throughout the world
C. The bags have been blamed for polluting cities and coastal areas.
D. The polythenes are more dangerous and damage the environment.
E. However, not everyone feels that banning plastic bags is a wise idea.
F. People are expected to bring their own cloth bags or baskets from home.
G. People caught breaking the law may be fined up to $40,000 or face a four-year jail term.
