    BYears ago, when I started looking for my first job, wise advisers advised, “Barbara, be enthusiastic! Enthusiasm will take you further than any amount of experience.”How right they were!“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” Wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson.It is the paste that helps you hang on there when the going gets tough. It is the inner voice that whispers, “I can do it!” When others shout, “No, you can’t!” It took years and years for the early work of Barbara Mclintock, a geneticist who won the 1983 Nobel Prize in medicine, to be generally accepted. Yet she didn’t stop working on her experiments. Work was such a deep pleasure for her that she never thought of stopping. We are all born with wide-eyed, enthusiastic wonder and it is this childlike wonder that gives enthusiastic people such youthful air, whatever their age. At 90, cellist Pablo Casals would start his day by playing Bach. As the music flowed through his fingers, his stooped shoulders would straighten and joy would reappear in his eyes. As author and poet Samuel Ulman once wrote, “Years wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.” Enthusiastic people also love what they do, regardless of money or title or power. Patricia Mellratl retired director of the Missouri Repertory Theater in Kansas City, was once asked where she got her enthusiasm. She replied, “My father, long ago, told me,I never made a dime until I stopped working for money.” If we cannot do what we love as a full-time career, we can as a hobby. Elizabeth Layton Wellsville,Kan,was 68 before she began to draw. This activity ended periods of depression that troubled her for at least 30 years and the quality of her work led one critic to say, “I am tempted into a genius.” We can’t afford to waste tears on“might-have-been”. We need to turn the tears into sweat as we go after“what-can-be”.We need to live each moment whole-heartedly, with all our senses—finding pleasure in the sweet smell of a back-yard garden, the simple picture of a six-year-old, the beauty of a rainbow.60. The author holds the view that ______ .A. enthusiasm is more important than experienceB. enthusiasm can give people more success and fameC. enthusiastic people will never get oldD. enthusiasm can make you succeed and enjoy life61. Which of the following can best explain the underlined sentence in the second paragraph?A. Enthusiastic people never consider money and fameB. Enthusiastic people can gain great fame and honorC. Enthusiasm can give you courage and strength in difficult timesD. If you don’t have enthusiasm,you can achieve nothing62. The author mentions cellist Pablo Casals in the third paragraph to show that ______ .A. enthusiasm can make people feel youngB. music can arouse people’s enthusiasmC. enthusiasm can give people inspiration needed to succeedD. enthusiasm can keep people healthy63. How many examples are given in the passage to show the importance of enthusiasm?A. Two B. Three C. Four D. Five

    DLet’s step back in time. As a child whose family lives along the Nile thousands of years ago, your name would be made up of several words. Each morning you would wake up to the sun-not an alarm clock-and start the day with prayer to the main god of your town. You would wear good luck charms to make things go well and make the gods happy.After a big breakfast, which has to last you until the evening meal, you would go to work with your parents. Boys would go with their fathers and girls with their mothers, learning the jobs their parents did and helping them with their work. Only scribes and doctors went to school. When payday comes, your parents receive baskets full of food and clothing from the people they work for. Your family doesn’t miss having money, because there is no such thing.Boys learn the songs the men sing to make their work enjoyable. Girls and women are often musicians and gymnasts, celebrating life through music and dance. When harvest time comes, everyone helps in the field. Girls toss grain and corn high in to the wind to clean it. Boys bundle crops and put them inside baskets. There is lots of work to do in old Egypt, but also time for play. On the way back from the fields you might stop for a swim in the Nile River or one of the canals.If you were sick you would be taken to a priest in the temple called The House of Life. The priest would feel your head and then his own, so he could compare the temperatures. If you were sick, he would stand over you and chant a magical spell, speaking directly to your illness. Then he might give you healing plants or potions to eat which often smelled or tasted very bad. Ancient Egyptian doctors figured that awful medicine might make the illness want to leave the child’s body. Some herbs and plants that these ancient doctors used are still used today—like drinking chamomile tea for an upset stomach.Your family pet might be a little monkey that followed you around all day, a protective goose, a cat, or a dog. Pet owners would often have their pets mummified at death.Common toys in ancient Egypt were: balls made of linen rags wrapped around each other, tied with string, and painted; games like checkers; dolls made of cloth and clay; and little animal pull toys made of wood.69. What are Not the common toys in ancient Egypt?A. toy monkeys B. balls made of linen ragsC. dolls made of cloth and clay D. games like checkers70. Each morning you wake up, you would see ______ . A. an alarm clock B. the sun C. the Nile D. the main god 71. Which of the following is Not mentioned? A. doctors B. priests C. musicians D. astronauts72. Put the following statements in the right order, according to passage.a. People start the day with prayer. b. People go to work. c. People see the sun.d. People wear good luck charms. e. People have a big breakfast f. People wake up.A. a-b-c-d-e-f B. a-d-e-f-c C. f-c-a-d-e-b D. f-e-c-d-a-b
    第二节:简答题(共3小题,每小题2分;满分6分)阅读下面短文,简要回答问题,并将答案转写道答题卡上。 Although man has known asbestos for many hundreds of years, it was not until 160 years ago that it was mined for the first time on the North American continent. H. W. Johns, owner of a New York City Supply Shop for roofers, was responsible for the opening of that first mine. Mr. Johns was given a piece of asbestos which had been found in Italy. He experimented with the material and then showed its surprising powers to his customers. After putting on a pair of asbestos gloves, which looked much like ordinary work gloves, he took red-hot coals from the fireplace and played with them in his hands. How astonished the customers were to discover that he was not burned at all. You can well imagine that he had increasing business in asbestos roofing materials. However, because it was very expensive to transport (carry) them from Italy to the United States, Mr. Johns sent out a young scientist to seek a source nearer home. This young man found great vein(岩脉), in the province of Quebec in Canada. Ever since 1881 Quebec has led the world in the production of this unusual mineral, which is made up of magnesium, silicon, iron, and oxygen. When it is mined, the asbestos is heavy, just as you would expect a mineral to be. When it is separated, a strange thing happens; the rock breaks down into fine, soft, soapy fibres. Scientists do not know why the rock can be separated easily into threads, but they have found thousands of uses of this fireproof material, of the so-called “cloth of stone”.

    第四部分:写作(共两节,满分35分)第一节 填空(共 10 小题;每小题 1 分,满分 10 分) 阅读短文,根据所读内容在表中的空格处填上适当的单词或短语,每空不超过3个单词。There are two types of people in the world. Although they have equal degree of health and wealth and other comforts of life, one becomes happy, the other becomes unhappy. This arises from the different ways in which they consider things, persons, events and the resulting effects upon their minds.People who are to be happy fix their attention on the convenience of things. The pleasant parts of conversation, the well prepared dishes, the goodness of the wine, the fine weather. They enjoy all the cheerful things. Those who are to be unhappy think and speak only of the opposite things. Therefore, they are continually dissatisfied. By their remarks, they sour the pleasure of society, offend (hurt) many people, and make themselves disagreeable everywhere. If this turn of mind was founded in nature, such unhappy persons would be the more to be pitied. The intention of criticizing and being disliked is perhaps taken up by imitation. It grows into a habit, unknown to its possessors. The habit may be strong, but it may be cured when those who have it realize its bad effects on their interests and tastes. I hope this little warning may be of service to them, and help them change this habit.Though in fact it is chiefly an act of the imagination, it has serious results in life since it brings on deep sorrow and bad luck. Those people offend many others; nobody loves them, and no one treats them with more than the most common politeness and respect. This frequently puts them in bad temper and draws them into arguments. If they aim at getting some advantages in social position or fortune, nobody wishes them success. Nor will anyone start a step or speak a word to favor their hopes. If they bring on themselves public objections, no one will defend or excuse them, and many will join to criticize their wrong doings. These should change this bad habit and be pleased with what is pleasing, without worrying needlessly about themselves and others. If they do not, it will be good for others to avoid any contact with them. Otherwise, it can be disagreeable and sometimes very inconvenient, especially when one becomes mixed up in their quarrels.

    Health CareFrom the picture, we can see that the old man was suffering from heart trouble. He had to go to hospital for medical care. When he saw the medical bill from the hospital, he was so shocked that he couldn’t stand on his feet. It was beyond what he could afford. It’s really another heart attack for him.At present, many people can’t afford heavy medical fees. Because of this, they may get into deep debt in order to get proper medical care or have to bear the pain of diseases. Worse still, some have to wait for the last day of their life.We strongly call for the medical expenses to be reduced. The government should build up a favorable medical system. Everyone could enjoy their life as long as possible.
