The fear that he saw in the eyes of that first dog-eventually replaced by gratitude and love-moved Grim so deeply that even at that young age he knew he had found his life’s work. In 1998, Grim formed a nonprofit group called Stray Rescue. The group’s goal： to save as many of St. Louis’s stray dogs as possible. Today, Grim heads up an organization with a ＄3 million annual budget, a staff of more than 50 paid workers, thousands of volunteers, and a well-equipped shelter that houses as many as 200 dogs. The money that supports Stray Rescue has been raised through donations and through the force of Grim’s outspoken advocacy （宣传）. A man who sees himself as shy is anything but that when it comes to speaking out for dogs.
The impact has been significant. While there are no good estimates as to the number of stray dogs on the streets of St. Louis, today 40% more dogs are being picked up off the streets than just two years ago, about 98% are now adopted into homes. Stray Rescue also funds（提供资金）a massive education campaign. The group’s bill-boards（广告牌） advocating adoption and neutering（绝育）of dogs are everywhere, as are brochures informing the public of free medical care for dogs and volunteer opportunities at Stray Rescue. “The whole landscape has changed,”says Pam Walker, St. Louis city health director. Since Grim’s involvement, she says, St. Louis has become a model for good practices in the area. Officials elsewhere sometimes ask how St. Louis deals with its dog problems. Walker says， “My answer is： We have Randy Grim.” Grim says he is delighted at the way the city has responded. Many St. Louis citizens“were already there,” he says, in terms of concern for dogs. “I’m really proud of my city.” 56. Which of the following is true of Randy Grim？ A. He is afraid of speaking out for dogs. B. He decided to rescue stray dogs when young. C. He is the director of a nursing home. D. He is dissatisfied with St. Louis government. 57.What can we learn about Stray Rescue？ A. It has got a big profit since it was founded. B. It has adopted as many as 200 dogs. C. It aims to rescue more stray dogs. D. It doesn’t run well for lack of money. 58.According to Paragraph 4, the education campaign___________. A. encourages adoption of stray dogs B. supports medical care for the public C. provides well-paid jobs D. objects to raising dogs at home 59.According to Pam Walker,_____. A. St. Louis has done little in treating dogs in America B. Grim has improved stray dog adoption in St. Louis C. provides well-paid jobs D. objects to raising dogs at home 60. We can infer from the text that______. A. Stray Rescue promises to be the most famous B. Grim has changed the whole city of St. Louis C. most Americans are unwilling to solve dog problems D. the number of stray dogs in St. Louis is reducing B More than one in four children alive in Britain today will celebrate their 100th birthday, official figures showed. The special figure shows a huge social change, with today’s children likely to survive far longer than their parents or grandparents. Of the 12.4 million children aged 16 and under, 3.3 million（27%）will become someone who is a hundred years old or more. In a class of 30 children, eight can live to be 100. And the rest of the children are likely to get to an old age, even though they will not make it to three figures. Experts warned that children may live to 100, but that they will not get their State pension until they are 70 or beyond. The State pension age is rising to 66 for both men and women by 2020, and the Government has warned it will continue to rise. Laith Khalaf, a pension expert, said, “Living to an old age is lucky if you can afford it, but a nuisance if you can’t. Those without enough savings will be depending on the State pension which will be changed.” It also increases the possibility of millions of people surviving until their 100th birthday with a poor quality of life because of poor health and little money. Millions of older people have no pensions, no savings and no plans about how they are going to pay for their retirement other than to carry on working. If the older population demands more resources（资源） ，then it has to come from their own wealth or the government. Laith said, “Millions of people will be spending over a third of their lives in retirement. It is high time that we reformed the State pension system. We want to make it fair for future generation.” 61.From the first paragraph we can learn that___________. A. today’s children probably live longer than their parents
B. few of British children are expected to live to an old age C. more than 30% of children aged 16 can live to be 100 D. 20% of British children will celebrate their 100th birthday 62.The underlined word “nuisance”in Paragraph 2 probably means__________. A. somebody who is disabled B. somebody who is dishonest C. something that causes trouble D. something that is incorrect 63.What kind of life will people living to 100 probably face? A. A high quality of life because of the development of technology. B. A low quality of life because of bad health and limited money. C. A high quality of life because of the increase in food price. D. A low quality of life because of the present government. 64.Why should the government at present reform the State pension system? A. The present pension system isn’t quite useful. B. People nowadays don’t need the pension at all. C. More and more people ask the government to do so. D. The present pension system is unfair for future generation. 65.What can be inferred from the text？ A. The retirement age will be raised to 70 or beyond. B. The government will provide job chances for the retired. C. The State pension age for men is different from that for women. D. It will increase the government’s pressure if more children live to 100.

She says mobile phones are the fastest growing technology on the continent. “Faster than TV, definitely faster than electricity. More people have access to mobile phones and therefore communication.

They include political activism, education, entertainment, disaster management, agriculture and health. Another area is banking.

Now he uses a mobile phone banking service called Orange Money. With his telephone, he can add or take out as little as one dollar. He can make payments and send money to family members who live far away. Orange Money says it serves four million customers in ten countries. The World Bank’s Samia Melham notes that the French company is facing competition from other mobile banking services. “The mobile banking is a huge trend. And people in the West don’t understand it, because most people have bank accounts and they have credit cards. It-mobile banking-is the instant possession fo cash at a much lower cost. The cost is the cost of sending an SMS, which is almost nothing compared to what traditional transfer agents, like Western Union, would charge-10 dollars or more for a particular money transfer.” 66.Which area has the most mobile users according to the text?

The site allows people to create a profile（简介） with separate sections for high school, college, graduate school and professional life. Students who sign up are linked to other people at their school.

She felt very happy about buying the dress until she got home. Then she remembered she had left her credit card at the store when she used it to pay for the dress.

She understood it very well. But somehow, at that moment, she could not explain it. Emma said,“___________________” ［3］Americans seem to have a lot of concern about losing it. At least that is what you would think from hearing them talk. They use the expression when they feel they are losing control. It can mean losing emotional control. Or losing the ability to do something. Or losing mental powers. ［4］One psychologist said, “We Americans have many concerns about controlling our lives. Perhaps we worry too much.” ［5］She continued, “In many situations, to say you are losing it eases the tension. It is healthy. And most people who say they are having a problem are not losing it.” People may feel more like they are losing it when they are“down in the dumps.”People who are down in the dumps are sad. They are depressed. ［6］ Word experts do not agree what the word dumps means. One expert, John Ayto , says the word dumps probably comes from the Scandanavian countries. The languages of Denmark and Norway both have similar words. The words mean to fall suddenly. ［7］Americans borrowed this saying. And, over the years, it has become a popular way of expressing sadness. 76.How does the author introduce the topic of the text?（no more than 5 words） 77.Fill in the blank in Paragraph 2 with proper words.（no more than 6 words） 78.List three situations when Americans use “losing it”. 79.What’s the meaning of the underlined phrase in Paragraph 5？（no more than 3 words） 80.What is the benefit of saying “losing it”, according to the psychologist?（no more than 12 words） 第二节 写作（满分 30 分） 假如你是某中学生李明。最近，你在网上看到一则“骑自行车出行在美国已成时尚”的报道，针对目前我 国城市交通堵塞、雾霾天气等现状，写一篇文章发表在 China Daily 上。主要内容包括： 1.简述报道及我国现状； 2.呼吁绿色出行，如：骑自行车、乘坐公共交通工具等。 注意：1.词数：120—150； 2.适当增加细节，以使行文连贯； 3.参考词汇，雾霾 fog and haze
