Pete took his seat this day on his usual bench in Union Square．Every Thanksgiving Day for nine years Pete had taken this same seat exactly at one o'clock, and each time the same pleasant thing had happened ． But this time Pete had come here more from habit than from hunger． Certainly today Pete was not hungry． Two rich old ladies gave him a Thanksgiving dinner of everything he could eat． Pete sat on the bench now, hardly able to move． buttons on his ragged shirt and coat were The about to burst．The November breeze and the first light fall of snow felt cool and pleasant to his face．He happened to look to the left and there in the distance he saw the old Gentleman coming toward him．He wanted to get up and run, but he was so full of food he stayed right there．Every Thanksgiving Day for nine years, the Old Gentleman had come there, found Pete on this same bench, and then taken him to a restaurant and bought him a Thanksgiving dinner．It was a kind of tradition which the Old Gentleman, who had no family and lived alone, had tried to continue． "How do you do' "said the Old Gentleman．" Glad to see that the changes of another year have permitted you to move in health through this beautiful world．" Each time the Old Gentleman had said exactly this same thing. It was part of the tradition．Pete, too, began to feel as though he himself was now a part of the tradition, and he therefore did not have the courage to tell the old man that he had already eaten．This dinner seemed to mean so much to the Old Gentleman.
"Thank you, sir, " said Pete at last. “I’ll go with you gladly. I’m very hungry, sir.” Together the Old Gentleman and Pete walked south to the same restaurant where each year Pete had his Thanksgiving dinner. The Old Gentleman seemed pleased and happy. When the waiter brought dish after dish of food to Pete, the Old Gentlenman sat quietly and smiled ． Under the circumstances, Pete had to eat． was part of the tradition, and so he ate like a hero, although when It he entered the restaurant even the smell of food almost made him sick．At last Pete leaned back with the battle won． " Thank you, sir, " he said, with some effort, " for a fine dinner．" They parted as they did each year at the door, the Old Gentlemen going south, Pete north． Around the corner, Pete stopped for a moment, felt a terrible pain in his stomach, and then fell to the sidewalk unconscious．A little time later an ambulance came．In the hospital they discovered that he had had an attack of indigestion（消化不良). An hour later, another ambulance brought the Old Gentleman to the same hospital．At first they thought it was also indigestion but later one of the nurses said, "That nice old gentleman over there—you wouldn't think that it was a case of hunger." 56．Which of the following sentences may be right? A. The old gentleman was very rich. B．Pete and the old gentleman met each other for the ninth time. C．The old gentleman ate nothing for the Thanksgiving dinner. D．Pete enjoyed three Thanksgiving dinners that day. 57．Which of the following sentences in the passage doesn't show Pete was full? A．Pete sat on the bench now, hardly able to move． B．The buttons on his ragged shirt and coat were about to burst． C．Glad to see that the changes of another year have permitted you to move in health through this beautiful world． D．When he entered the restaurant even the smell of food almost made him sick． . 58．The underlined sentence "I'm very hungry, sir." in Paragraph 5 implies that A．Pete didn't have the heart to refuse the offer B．Pete was so greedy that he wanted to have another dinner C．Pete was suffering from hunger D．Pete enjoyed having the Thanksgiving dinner for free 59．Which of the following words can best describe Pete ?

Phys ed (physical education) is making a comeback as a part of the school core curriculum(核心课程)， but with a difference. While group sports are still part of the curriculum, the new way is to teach skills that are useful beyond gym class. Instead of learning how to climb a rope, children are taught to lift weights, balance their diets and build physical endurance(忍耐力). In this way， kids are given the tools and skills and experiences so they can lead a physically active life the rest of their life. Considering that 15 percent of American children 6 to 18 are overweight, supporters say more money and thought must be put into phys ed curriculum. In many cases, that may mean not just
replacing the old gym-class model with fitness programs but also starting up phys ed programs because school boards often "put P.E. on the chopping block(砧板), cutting it entirely or decreasing its teachers or the days it is offered," says Alicia Moag-Stahlberg, the executive director of Action for Health Kids. The difference in phys ed programs is partly due to the lack of a national standard. "Physical education needs to be part of the core curriculum," she added. The wisdom of the new approach has some scientific support. Researchers at the University of Wisconsin have showed how effective the fit-for-life model of gym class can be. They observed how 50 overweight children lost more weight when they cycled and skied cross-country than when they played sports. The researchers also found that teaching sports like football resulted in less overall movement, partly because some reluctant students were able to sit on the bench. Another problem with simply teaching group sports in gym class is that only a small percentage of students continue playing them after graduating from high school. The new method teaches skills that translate to adulthood. 60. What does Alicia Moag-Stahlberg mean by saying “some school boards put P. E. on the chopping block”? A. Schools do not pay enough attention to P. E.. B. Schools welcome P. E. but do not have time for it. C. Schools put P.E. in the first place. D. Schools cut down other subjects’ time for P.E.. 61. Which is NOT the reason to carry out phys ed programs according to the passage? A. More teenagers are overweight. B. Traditional group sports teaching is not effective. C. Students need to learn some skills to help them lead a physically active life. D. Phys ed programs need less money to support. 62. How many problems are mentioned in the passage with simply teaching group sports? A. One B. Two C. Three D. Four 63. What’s the difference between the come-back phys ed and the ordinary gym-class model？ A. The Phys ed teaches group sports. B. The Phys ed provides more fitness programs. C. The Phys ed teaches tools and skills which could be used in the future life. D. The Phys ed has more support from the government.

Against the supposition that forest fires in Alaska, Canada and Siberia warm the climate, scientists have discovered that cooling may occur in areas where burnt trees allow more snow to mirror sunlight into space． This finding suggests that taking steps to prevent northern forest fires to limit the release of greenhouse gases may warm the climate in northern regions．Usually large fires destroyed forests in these areas over the past decade．Scientists predict that with climate warming, fires may occur more frequently over the next several centuries as a result of a longer fire season． Sunlight taken in by the earth tends to cause warming, while heat mirrored back into space tends to cause cooling． This is the first study to analyze all aspects of how northern fires influence climate．Earlier studies by other scientists have suggested that fire in northern regions speed up climate warming because greenhouse gases from burning trees and plants are released into the atmosphere and thus trap heat． Scientists found that right after the fire, large amounts of greenhouse gases entered the atmosphere and caused warming．Ozone（臭氧）levels increased, and ash from the fire fell on far-off sea ice, darkening the surface and causing more radiation from the sun to be taken in．the following spring, however, the land within the area of the fire was brighter than before the fire, because fewer trees covered the ground．Snow on the ground mirrored more sunlight back into space, leading to cooling． “We need to find out all possible ways to reduce the growth of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere．” Scientists tracked the change in the amount of radiation entering and leaving the
climate system as a result of the fire, and found a measurement closely related to the global air temperature．Typically, fire in northern regions occurs in the same area every 80 to 150 years．Scientists, however, found that when fire occurs more frequently, more radiation is lost from the earth and cooling results．Specifically, they determined when fire returns 20 years earlier than predicted, 0．5 watts per square meter will be sent back into space．The net effect is cooling．Watts are used to measure the rate at which energy is gained or lost from the earth． 68．According to the new findings, taking steps to prevent northern forest fires may _______ ． A．result in a warming climate B．cause the forest fires to occur more frequently C．lead to a longer fire season D．protect the forests and the environment there 69．The following are all the immediate effects after a forest fire EXCEPT _______ ． A．large amounts of greenhouse gases enter the atmosphere B．the levels of ozone which is a type of oxygen increase C．snow on the ground mirrors more sunlight back into space D．ashes from the fire fall on the ice surface and take in more radiation from the sun[ 70．Earlier studies about northern forest fires _______ ． A．analyze all aspects of how northern fires influence climate B．indicate that forest fires will pollute the atmosphere C．suggest that people should take measures to protect environment D．suggest that the fires will speed up climate warming 71．From the passage we can draw a conclusion that forest fires in Alaska, Canada and Siberia may _______ ． A．warm the climate as the supposition goes B．allow more snow to reflect more sunlight into space and thus cool the climate C．destroy large areas of forests and pollute the far-off sea ice D．help to gain more energy rather than release more energy
A space ambassador could be appointed by the United Nations to act as the first point of contact for aliens trying to communicate with Earth. Mazlan Othman,a Malaysian astrophysicist,is set to be tasked with co-ordinating humanity’s response if and when extraterrestrials(外星人) make contact.Aliens who landed on earth and asked:“Take me to your leader”would be directed to Mrs Othman.She will set out the details of her proposed new role at a Royal Society conference in Buckinghamshire next week.The 58-year-old is expected to tell delegates that the proposal has been prompted by the recent discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting other stars,which is thought to make the discovery of extraterrestrial life more probable than ever before. Mrs Othman is currently head of the UN’s little known Office for Outer Space Affairs(Unoosa).In a recent talk to fellow scientists,she said:“The continued search for extraterrestrial communication,by several entities （机构） ,sustains the hope that some day human kind will receive signals from extraterrestrials.“When we do,we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject.The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination.”
Opinion is divided about how future extraterrestrial visitors should be greeted.Under the Outer Space Treaty on 1967,which Unoosa oversees,UN members agreed to protect Earth against contamination by alien species by“sterilising”them.Mrs Othman is understood to support a more tolerant approach. But Professor Stephen Hawking has warned that alien interlopers should be treated with caution.He said:“I imagine they might exist in massive ships,having used up all the resources from their home planet.The outcome for us would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America,which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.” 72. This passage is mainly about the fact that___________. A.future extraterrestrial should be greeted B.Matlan Othman, a space ambassador to be appointed C.future extraterrestrial should be treated with caution D.human kind will receive signals from extraterrestrials 73. Which of the following is wrong according to the passage? A.Life may exist on hundred of planets orbiting other stars. B.Some day human kind will get in contact with aliens. C.Sterilising alien specieses is a proper way to protect Earth against contamination. D.Mrs Othman comes from a famous office for Outer Space Affairs. 74. The underlined word "sustains" has the closest meaning with _______. A.strengthens B.weakens C.changes D.suspects 75. In the eyes of Professor Stephen Hawking, _________. A.humans should welcome alien interlopers B.humans should fight with alien interlopers C.the aliens may have a better civilization than humans D.Christopher Columbus wasn't a true hero

When they went away they left the melon’s skin on the bench, making it very dirty. They didn’t want to take any trouble to throw it into the dustbin although it was very near where they were sitting. Instead, they said that there would be someone who should clean the rubbish. However, what they did makes others look down upon them. If everyone behaves in this way, the world will be a big rubbish dump with flies flying round and people will live in a world of diseases. Besides, it will be impossible for dustmen to clean the world with such people living in it.
