Jess really felt very happy. When he arrived at his seat in the classroom that morning, he found an invitation on his desk. It was from several of his classmates asking him to join them on a camping trip. This was the first time he was asked to join in an out-of- school activity. Why were they asking him now? Nobody seemed to like him. In fact, he had been so lonely that he drowned his feeling with food. As a result, he had put on a lot of weight, and this gave the kids something more to make fun of him.
Cindy, who was standing near Jess when he read the invitation, went out quickly to tell the others that the trick had worked. Everyone was pleased that Jess thought that was true. But there was no camping trip. The whole thing was made up.
At first, Cindy thought it was fun. But later, when Jess told her that he was going to buy a sleeping bag with his saving, Cindy had a second thought.

All around us buildings shook. We decided to leave the town ... We stopped once we had left the buildings behind us... The carts were moving on opposite directions, though the ground was perfectly flat, and they wouldn't stay in place even with their wheels blocked by stones.
In addition, it seemed as though the sea was being sucked backwards, as if it were being pushed back by the shaking of the land. Certainly the shoreline moved outwards, and many sea animals were left on dry sand.
Behind us were frightening dark clouds that opened up to show fire--like lightening, but bigger... Not long after that the cloud reached down to the ground and covered the sea. Now came the dust, though still thin. I looked back.. A dense cloud appeared behind us, following us like a flood pouring across the land. Then a darkness came that was not like a moonless or cloudy night, but more like being in a closed and unlighted room. You could hear women and children crying, men shouting. Some were calling for parents, others for children；they could only recognize them by their voices.
Darkness and ashes came again, a great weight of them. We stood up and shook the ash off again and again, otherwise we would have been covered with it and crushed(压垮)by the weight.
At last the cloud became thinner and thinner until it was no more than smoke or fog. Soon there was real daylight. The sight that met our still terrified eyes was a changed world, buried in ash like snow.

"King Kong" is a movie about an adventure on an island called Skull, where an oversize gorilla named Kong falls in love with a blonde beauty.
It has been 72 years since the story was first brought to the screen. But the latest movie version is a box office hit in the US. Every 10- year- old boy knows Kong, and his image is used to sell everything from insurance to snacks.
So what is it that makes the story attractive to generations of Americans?
Set in the Great Depression of the 1930s, the film follows New York actress Ann Darrow, who is forced to act as a leading lady in a movie. She was taken to the Skull Island, where she was caught by the aboriginals, who want to sacrifice her to King Kong, a gorilla. But instead of eating Ann, King Kong saves her. He is captured and dragged back to New York. There he bursts free and climbs the Empire State Building in search of Ann.
Why did King Kong appear in 1933 and why is he back now?
In 1933 a worldwide economic depression threw the future into doubt. "The monster represents American workers' feelings at being caged by forces beyond their control," says Gerald Molyneaux, the biographer of Charlie Chaplin.
Now, once again, Americans worry about their future in an age of terror, threatened by the presence of al- Qaida (基地组织).
But some people, on the other hand, see the movie just as what it is.
"I am confident the story is not any type of social or political symbol," says artist Dave Dorman, creator of the cover illustrations for the new King Kong comic books. "Sometimes an ape is just an ape."
68. Which of the following statements is NOT true about the movie?
A. The first movie called "King Kong" appeared 72 years ago.
B. The latest "King Kong" movie is very popular in the US.
C. The movie is not well received by American girls.
D. The image of King Kong can be seen on many products.
69. Ann Darrow is kidnapped because _______.
A. she is attractive
B. she has been followed
C. moviemakers want to sacrifice her to King Kong
D. she is needed in a movie
70. King Kong climbs the Empire State Building _______.
A. to look for Ann
B. just for fun
C. to enjoy the sight of New York
D. to capture the movie makers
71. What is Dave Dorman's opinion about King Kong's popularity?
A. King Kong reflects American' s feelings.
B. The movie is only a made - up story
C. Americans doubt their future in an age of terror.
D. He doesn't believe the story at all.
How to eat healthfully can be especially complex for working women who often have neither the desire nor the time to cook for themselves (or for anyone else). Registered dietitian(营养专家)Barhara Morrissey suggests that a few simple rules can help.
“Go for nutrient-dense foods,” she suggests, “foods that contain a multiple of nutrients. For example, select whole wheat bread as a breakfast food, rather than coffee cake. Or drink orange juice rather than orange drink, which contains only a small percentage of real juice―the rest is largely colored sugar water. You just can’t compare the value of these foods, the nutrient-dense ones are so superior,” she emphasizes.
Morrissey believes that variety is not only the spice of life―it’s the foundation of a healthful diet. Diets which are based on one or two foods are not only virtually impossible to keep up the strength, they can be very harmful, she says, because nutrients aren’t supplied in sufficient amounts or balance.
According to Morrissey, trying to find a diet that can cure your illnesses, or make you superwoman is a fruitless search. As women, many of us are too concerned with staying thin, she says, and we believe that vitamins are some kind of magic cure to replace food.
“We need carbohydrates, protein and fat―they are like the wood in the fireplace. The vitamins and minerals are like the match, the spark, for the fuel,” she explains. “We need them all, but in a very different proportions(比例). And if the fuel isn’t there, the spark is useless.”
72.From the paragraph we know that working women .
A. think cooking is especially complicated
B. do not share the same views with registered dietitians
C. are busy and not interested in cooking
D. are likely to eat healthfully
73.Orange juice is different from orange drink in that .
A. it contains only a small percentage of real juice
B. it is natural, nutritious and prepared from real oranges
C. it is largely orange colored sugar water
D. it produces nothing but calories
74.In Paragraph 4, “a fruitless search” means .
A. an effort with no results
B. a search for a diet without fruits
C. a research on fruitless diet
D. a diet serving as medicine
75.By “if the fuel isn’t there, the spark is useless”, the author means .
A. carbohydrates, protein and fat are enough to support a human life
B. vitamins and minerals are virtually of no value
C. carbohydrates, protein and fat are as important as vitamins and minerals
D. without carbohydrates, protein and fat, vitamins and minerals are of no use

第三部分：阅读理解 (共20小题；每小题2分, 满分40分)
It is physically impossible for a well-educated, intellectual, or brave man to make money the chief object of his thoughts; as physically impossible as it is for him to make his dinner the principal object of them. All healthy people like their dinner, but their dinner is not the main object of their lives. So all healthy-minded people like making money ― ought to like it and to enjoy the sensation of winning it ; but the main object of their lives is not money; it is something better than money.
A good soldier, for example, mainly wishes to do his fighting well. He is glad of his pay ― very properly so, and justly grumbles (抱怨) when you keep him ten months without it; still, his main notion of life is to win battles, not to be paid for winning them.
So of doctors. They like fees no doubt ― ought to like them; yet if they are brave and well- educated, the entire object of their lives is not fees. They, on the whole, desire to cure the sick, and ― if they are good doctors, and the choices were fairly put to them ― would rather cure their patient and lose their fee than kill him and get it. And so with all other brave and rightly trained men; their work is first, their fee second, very important always, but still second.
But in every nation, there is a vast class of people who are cowardly, and more or less stupid. And with these people, just as certainly the fee is first and the work second, as with brave people the work is first and the fee second.
And this is no small distinction (区别). It is the whole distinction. It is the whole distinction in
a man. You can’t serve two masters ; you first with you, and your fee second, work is your master.
Observe, then, all wise work is mainly threefold in character. It is honest, useful, and cheerful. I hardly know anything more stranger than that you recognize honesty in play, and do not in work. In your lightest games you have always someone to see what you call “fair play ” . In boxing you must hit fair; in racing, start fair. Your watchword is fair play; your hatred, foul play. Did it ever strike you that you wanted another watchword also, fair work, and another hatred also, foul work?

A. Money. B. Healthy. C. Something better than money. D. Food.
57. What does “very properly so” mean?
A. Very poor. B. Reasonable. C. Impossible. D. Very good.

A. their fee is first B. their patient is second C. their work is first D. both fee and work are first
59. What do you learn from the passage?
A. All healthy-minded people like making money.
B. The fee is first and work second.

"Creativity is the key to a brighter future," say education and business experts. Here is how schools and parents can encourage this important skill in children.
If Dick Drew had listened to his boss in 1925, we might not have a product that we now think of as of great importance: a new type of tape. Drew worked for the Minnesota Mining Company. At work he developed a kind of material strong enough to hold things together. But his boss told him not to think more about the idea. Finally, using his own time, Drew improved the tape, which now is used everywhere by many people. And his former company learned from its mistake. Now it encourages people to spend 15 percent of their work time just thinking about and developing new ideas.
Creativity is not something one is just born with, nor is it necessarily a character of high intelligence. The fact a person is highly intelligent does not mean that he uses it creatively. Creativity is the matter of using the resources one has to produce new ideas that are good for something.
Unfortunately, schools have not tried to encourage creativity. With strong attention to test results and the development of reading, writing and mathematical skills, many educators give up creativity for correct answers. The result is that children can give back information but can't recognize ways to use it in new situations. They may know the rules correctly but they are unable to use them to work out practical problems.
It is important to give children choices. From the earliest age, children should be allowed to make decisions and understand their results. Even if it's choosing between two food items for lunch, decision making helps thinking skills. As children grow older, parents should let their children decide how to use their time or spend their money. This is because the most important character of creative people is a very strong desire to find a way out of trouble.
63. The company where Drew once worked learnt from its mistake that ________.
A. they should encourage people to work a longer time
B. they should discourage people to think freely
C. they should ask people to spend all their work time developing new ideas
D. they should encourage people to spend some time considering and improving new ideas
64. Creativity is something
A. that people are born with B. that depends on intelligence
C. that is a way of using what one has learned to work out new problems
D. that is not important at all
65. Schools don't try to encourage creativity because ________.
A. they don't understand the importance of education
B. they don’t want their students to make mistakes
C. they pay too much attention to exam marks, language and mathematical skills
D. they think it more important to remember some information
66. Parents should when their children decide how to spend their money.
A. try to help them as much as possible B. take no notice of whatever they do
C. leave them as they are D. help them if their decision is wrong
Artificial (人造的) flowers are used for scientific as well as for
decorative purposes. They are made from a variety of materials, such as wax and
glass, so skillfully that they can scarcely be distinguished from natural
flowers. In making such models, painstaking and artistry are called for, as
well as thorough knowledge of plant structure. The collection of glass flowers
in the Botanical Museum of Harvard University is the most famous in

Short people, studies have shown, are more likely to have a stroke（中风）, suffer from high blood pressures and heart disease and be bullied in school.
Now, researchers report that short people―at least in the past―were also more likely to die at a younger age than their taller peers.
Their study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology（流行病学）and Community Health, found that short bones have something to do with short life for more than 1,000 years. The conclusion was based on 490 sets of adult skeletal（骨架的） remains from an archaeological（考古的）site in northeastern England, dating from the 9th century to about 1850.
About 55% of men and 73% of women died before the age of 45, and 39% of men and 56% of women died before age 30. The risk of death before age 30 declined as bone length increased.
“This study provides evidence from an archaeological sample that long bone length is connected with age at death―those with smaller bones tend to die younger,” according to Dr. D.J. Gunnell of the University of Bristol in the UK and colleagues.
While it is not clear why short stature（身材）might be linked to earlier death, the researchers point out that height is an indicator of childhood nutrition, which may have long-lasting effect on health.
“Mechanism（身体结构） for height-motality（死亡）associations in the past may differ from those today, for example, short stature may have increased the risk of death in childbirth and this may explain the higher risk of premature（未成熟的） mortality in women, ” Gunnel and collegues write.
“However, short bones, it would appear, have always been a marker of a short life,” the authors conclude.
