I grew up poor. We had little money, but plenty of love and attention. I understood that no matter how poor a person was, he could still afford a dream. My dream was athletics.
By the time I was sixteen, I was good at baseball and football. My high-school coach was Ollie Jarvis. He not only believed in me, but taught me the difference between having a dream and showing conviction(信念).
One summer a friend recommended me for a summer job. This meant a chance for money in my pocket — cash for dates with girls, certainly, money for a new bike and new clothes, and the start of savings for a house for my mother.
Then I realized I would have to give up summer baseball to handle the work schedule, and that meant I would have to tell Coach Jarvis I wouldn’t be playing. I was dreading(害怕) this, but my mother said, “If you make your bed, you have to lie in it.”
When I told Coach Jarvis, he was as mad as I expected him to be. “Your playing days are limited. You can’t afford to waste them,” he said.
I stood before him with my head hanging, trying to think of the words that would explain to him why I dreamed of buying my mom a house.
“How much are you going to make at this job, son?” he demanded.
“Three twenty-five an hour,” I replied.
“Well,” he asked, “is $3.25 an hour the price of a dream?”
That question laid bare for me the difference between wanting something right now and having a goal. I devoted myself to sports that summer, and within the year I was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates to play rookie-league ball, and offered a $20,000 contract. I signed with the Denver Broncos in 1984 for $1.7 million, and bought my mother the house of my dream.
24. The writer was grateful to Coach Jarvis, because Jarvis________.
A. made him set a goal B. supplied him with new clothes
C. gave him financial support D. helped him show conviction
25. When the writer was offered a job, he wanted to ______.
A. balance summer baseball and the work schedule
B. refuse the job offer for summer baseball
C. give up summer baseball for the job
D. ask his coach Jarvis for advice
26. Which of the following can replace the underlined sentence?
A. You must eat the bitter fruit of your own making.
B. Believe in yourself, but above all be patient.
C. You must rely on yourself first, then others.
D. A good beginning makes a good ending.
27. The end of the story was that the writer ______.
A. failed to buy his mother a house
B. succeeded as a sportsman
C. became a successful businessman
D. made some money in the summer job
It’s said that you don’t know a man until you walk a mile in his shoes. And you also don’t know what it’s like for older people to travel until you accompany one on a trip.
After flying with my elderly father from Washington, D.C. to L.A. in July, I began to realize that a companion has important tasks that can make a journey easier for older people. I booked nonstop tickets on JetBlue to avoid tiring, confusing connections, and we flew directly into small, manageable Long Beach Airport. Even though my father could walk, I arranged with the airline for wheelchair assistance, which meant we got on board first.
When I took him back to the airport for his return flight to Washington, I got permission from JetBlue to wait with him at the gate instead of saying goodbye at the security checkpoint. I wished he’d had a first-class seat and access to a comfortable airline club. Better yet, I wish I had flown with him both ways. As I watched the attendant wheel him to the lift that took him from the tarmac（飞机跑道）to the plane, I felt like an anxious mom sending her child to school for the first time.
Things can go awry on a plane trip. And then there is the horrifying story about Joe and Margie. When they landed at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, a wheelchair attendant met them to help with a connection. But somehow Margie, who had Alzheimer’s disease, disappeared.
I didn’t need to worry about my father wandering away; at 82, his mind was sharper than mine. But his hearing was poor, so I worried about what would happen if he missed an important announcement. Fortunately, everything went just fine. Careful planning made the trip successful.
Next time I travel with a senior, I’ll know better. I hope there will be a next time.
28. Why did the man buy nonstop tickets?
A. His father was tired of flights.
B. He had important tasks to do.
C. He cared about his father.
D. His schedule was tight.
29. How did the author feel when seeing his father off?
A. Disappointed. B. Delighted. C. Worried. D. Sad.
30. What does the underlined part “go awry” probably mean?
A. be amused. B. carry on as usual.
C. live up to one’s expectation. D. be away from the correct course.
31. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Taking a trip does great good to seniors.
B. It is a pleasant experience to travel with seniors.
C. To have a long journey with seniors is unpractical.
D. A good arrangement ensures seniors to take a nice trip.
By trying to tickle(挠痒痒) rats and recording how their nerve cells respond, Shimpei Ishiyama and his adviser are discovering a mystery that has puzzled thinkers since Aristotle expected that humans, given their thin skin and unique ability to laugh, were the only ticklish animals.
It turns out that Aristotle was wrong. In their study published on Thursday, Ishiyama and his adviser Michael Brecht found that rats squeaked and jumped with pleasure when tickled on their backs and bellies. These signs of joy changed according to their moods. And for the first time, they discovered a special group of nerve cells. These nerve cells made this feeling so powerful that it causes an individual being tickled to lose control.
To make sure that he had indeed found a place in the brain where tickling was processed, Ishiyama then stimulated that area with electrical currents. The rats began to jump like rabbits and sing like birds.
“It’s truly ground-breaking,” said Jeffrey Burgdorf, a neuroscientist at Northwestern University who reviewed the paper. “It takes the study of emotion to a new level.”
Burgdorf has played a central role in our understanding of animal tickling. He was part of a team that first noticed, in the late 1990s, that rats made special noises when they were experiencing social pleasure. Others had already noted that rats repeatedly made short and high sounds during meals. But the lab where Burgdorf worked noticed that they emitted similar sounds while playing. And so one day, the senior scientist in the lab said, “Let’s go and tickle some rats.” They quickly found that those cries of pleasure doubled.
“The authors have been very adventurous,” said Daniel O’Connor, a neuroscientist at Johns Hopkins University who studies touch. To him, that finding was very surprising.
“Why does the world literally feel different when you are stressed out?” he said. “This is the first step towards answering that question. It gives us a way to approach it with experimental rigor(严谨).”
32. What contributed to humans’ being ticklish according to Aristotle?
A. Their special skin.
B. Their social pleasure.
C. Their nervous system.
D. Their willingness to touch.
33. Why did the researchers make use of electrical currents?
A. To discover the special group of nerve cells.
B. To experiment on different animals.
C. To follow the process of tickling.
D. To prove their finding.
34. Which of the following statements will Jeffrey Burgdorf agree with?
A. The research process is full of risks.
B. The finding of the study is surprising and unbelievable.
C. The new discovery is beneficial for the study of emotion.
D. The finding of the study actually contradicts modern science.
35. What is the best title f or the text?
A. The Life of Rats
B. How Rats Laugh
C. A Wonderful Scientist
D. A New Discovery about Rats
The ability to stay positive is one of the most important skills for us. Why is this? The reason is that we will spend most of our lives setting and trying to achieve goals. Everyone has dreams. Everyone wants to know deep down inside that they were put here to do something great. 36 The second you set a goal, difficulties will begin to appear to stand in your way. Most people let these challenges rob them of the life they really want．
If you want to achieve greatness, if you want to experience the best life possible, then be prepared to get knocked down over and over. 37 This explains why there are so many people who have stopped trying to reach their dreams.
So how do you remain positive regardless of what type of challenge you are facing? It all comes down to how you choose to respond to any situation as well as what you decide to focus on. No matter how bad your situation is, you can always find something good in it． 38
If you keep focusing on how bad you have it, how are things supposed to get any better? 39 Of course it is. If this is true, why even bother thinking positively? That is because if you do, you have a chance to make things better. If you don’t, things will usually get a lot worse.
Realize that challenges are a part of life． 40 It’s what makes reaching a goal worth it. If you were able to get everything you wanted without even trying, the victory wouldn’t taste as sweet.
A．Everyone will have to go through them．
B．Staying positive can be beneficial in many ways．
C．Staying positive during situations like this is not easy．
D．You can do things like reading positive books or listening to positive songs．
E．Is it possible to be positive and still have your circumstances get even worse?
F．However, the problem is that life is tough．
G．So what you can do is start focusing on what is good．

I went with some colleagues from my office for a dinner in a very popular local restaurant. It was 41 business time and the restaurant was packed. We 42 found a table in a corner for three of us．
As soon as w e sat down, we heard a crash when a cleaning boy 43 the floor with all the plates he was carrying. There was 44 and no one was saying or doing anything．
In a flash I remembered my 45 many years ago. Once, I 46 in the airport because I had rushed there on my own on an empty stomach. I was picked up and taken care of by two 47 . Now this was my chance to 48 it forward．
I ran to the young man’s side immediately, turned him on his back and screamed for someone to 49 a hot drink. Soon people started asking if I was a doctor. I said I was not, 50 I was skillful at blacking out(晕厥)．

If you make a career choice while you are still in high school, you will save time and money in the long run. Students who do not plan ahead may delay starting college or take extra courses 61 (give) themselves time to make up their 62 (mind). U.S. News and World Reports 63 (say) that the average annual tuition at a four-year college is $ 35,000. If you spend 64 extra year in school, you ma y have to take out additional loans or pay extra money to cover the cost.
Choosing a career while you are in high school also gives you time to explore your 65 (choose) industry. If you find a career 66 sounds interesting, you can follow someone in the field and see what it is 67 (real) like to have that job. You can also apply 68 a chance to get an informal position related to your desired industry. This will help you build a professional network even before you graduate from high school. Professional contacts are very 69 (value), especially when you are looking for a job in your field. If you do as much as you can to build a network 70 you are ready for a job, you will be more likely to succeed.
Last Sunday, sixty students from our school pay a visit to China Science and Technology Museum.
The museum, which main task is to spread the knowledge of science and technology, covers area of 48,000 square meters. The moment when we entered the museum, the exhibition caught their attention．In the museum, we saw the latest progresses in science and technology. Moreover, we did an amazed scientific experiment by ourselves. What appealed for us most was the 3D film that made us feel we were in real events.
Though the visiting time was slight short, we gained a lot. It is so an instruc tive activity that we hope more will be organized in the future.

One possible version:
I’m delighted to tell you about a school activity for the coming summer holidays, named Travel along the Silk Road. The details are as follows.
To find out the connections between China and the countries along the Silk Road, the 15-day tour will include two parts. We’ll visit the cultural relics and the museums with rich collections. Besides, we will call on some local residents at their homes. For safety purpose, all the participants should be at least 18, and at the same time they should be strong enough for the changeable weather and the long journey.
If you want to enter for it, you can contact the Student Union either by email or telephone. Best wishes!
