Last night, when I was driving back home, I noticed a hitchhiker(搭便车的人) who was having no luck getting a ride. I rolled down my window and signed to the man to my car. I asked him where he was heading and he told me he needed a ride to his doctor’s office which would close in 15 minutes. I told him to 15 and he gratefully did so.
As soon as he got in he told me that he was a 16 and went out to sea for weeks at a time. He took medicine for his nerves(神经） and needed to get another prescription(处方) before he left on the boat. He said that he had prayed (祈祷) 17 would stop for him so he could be there before the 18 office closed. With some fast driving we managed to make it there in about 10 19 . I then asked him how he planned on getting back home and he said he could walk. “I’ll patiently wait for you and bring you back,” I told him. He 20 me and said he should only b e about 15 minutes.
Afterwards he got back in my car and tried his hardest to pay me back: offering me dinner, gas money, even offering to ship me 40 lbs of scallops (海 扇贝)! I 21 refused, gave him a smile card and asked him to help someone else the next time he had a 22 . I drove him back to where I had picked him up and 23 one more “thank you” he was on his way.
I feel that the world always offers us what we need. In the man’s 24 it was a ride, in mine the chance to help someone else.

Joseph Goldberger was a doctor for the Unite States Public Health Service. In 1912, he began to study a disease that was killing thousands of people in the South. The disease was pellagra(烟酸缺乏病).
Doctor Goldberger traveled to the state of Mississippi where many people had pellagra. He studied the patients and their families. Most of the people were poor. The doctor came to believe that the disease was not passed from one person to another, but instead had something to do with food.
He received agreement from state officials to test this idea a t a prison(监狱). Prisoners were offered pardons if they took part. One group of prisoners received their usual food, mostly corn. A second group ate meat, fresh vegetables and milk. Members of the first group developed pellagra. The second group did not.
But some experts refused to accept that poor food caused pellagra. They thought there were other causes.
So Doctor Goldberger put blood(血液) from a person with pellagra into his own body. He even took pills that had blood from pellagra pati ents. An assistant also took part in the experiments. So did Doctor Goldberger’s wife. None of them got sick. Later, the doctor discovered that a bit of dried brewer’s yeast(酿酒的酵母) each day could prevent pellagra.
Joseph Goldberger died of cancer in 1929. He was 55 years old. Several years later, researchers discovered the true cause of pellagra: having little of the vitamin B.
31. How old was Doctor Goldberger when he began to study pellagra?
A. 22. B. 30. C. 38. D. 55.
32. The underlined part “this idea” (in Paragraph 3) refers to .
A. the guessing that pellagra had something to do with food
B. a kind of yeast that prevented pellagra
C. pellagra that was easily passed from one person to another
D. a poor food that caused pellagra
33. Which is the right order about what Doctor Goldberger did?
a. He did a test on prisoners at a prison.
b. He did the experiments on himself.
c. He came to Mississippi to study the patients and their families.
d. He found poor food was easy to cause pellagra.
e. He discovered a little dried brewer’s yeast every day could prevent pellagra.
A. a, d, c, e, b B. c, a, d, b, e C. b, e, c, a, d D. c, b, e, a, d
What exactly is a lie? Is it anything we say which we know is untrue? Or is it something more than that? For example, suppose a friend wants to borrow some money from you. You say “I wish I could help you, but I am short of money myself.” In fact, you are not short of money but your friend is in the habit of not paying his debts and you don’t want to hurt his feelings by reminding him of this. Is this really a lie?
Professor Jerald Jellison of the University of southern California has made a scientific study of lying. According to him, women are better lies than men, particularly when telling a “white lie”, such as when a woman at a party tells another woman that she likes her dress when she really thinks it’s terrible. However, this is only one side of the story. Other researchers say that men are more likely to tell more serious lies, such as making a promise that they have no intention of carrying out. This is the kind of lie politicians(政治家） and businessmen are supposed to be particularly skilled at: the lie from which the liar hopes to profit or gain in some way.
Research has been done into the way people’s behavior changes in a number of small, unimportant ways when they lie. It has been found that if they are sitting down at the time, they tend to move about in their chairs more than usual. To the trained observer they are saying “I wish I were somewhere else now”. They also tend to touch certain parts of the face, particularly the nose. One explanation of this may be that lying causes a slight increase in blood pressure. The tip of the nose is very sensitive to changes and the increased pressure makes it itch.
Another gesture that gives liars away is what the writer Decmond Morris in his book Man Watching calls the “mouth cover”. He says that there are several typical forms of this, such as covering part of the mouth with the fingers, touch the upper lip or putting a finger of the hand at one side off t he mouth. Such a gesture can be understood as an unconscious(未察觉的) attempt on the part of the liar to stop himself from lying.
Of course, such gestures as rubbing the nose or covering the mouth, moving about in a chair can not be taken as proof that the speaker is lying. They simply tend to happen more often in this situation. It is one gesture alone that gives the liar away but a whole number of things, and in particular the context(上下文) which the lie is told.
34.According to the passage, a white lie seems to be a lie ______.
A. that other people believe
B. that other people don’t believe
C. told in order not to hurt someone’s feelings
D. told in order to take advantage of someone
35.Research suggests that women _____.
A. are better at telling less serious lies than men
B. generally lie for more than men do
C. often make promises they intend to break
D. lie at parties more often than men do
36.The writer of the passage______.
A. hates lying B. enjoys lying C. often tells a lie D. tries to study about lying
37. Which of the following is NOT mentioned in the passage as a sign of lying ?
A. Touching one’s ears B. Rubbing the nose
C. Moving in a chair D. Covering the mouth

Some people succeed, while others may not. This is because some people owns qualities, which others do not.
The first thing you must remember is that in order to succeed, you must be optimistic(乐观的). If you don't expect to win, you will not try as hard as those who do expect to win. You also need to have a clear aim and a reason for doing something because motivation (动力) is a key to achieving success. If you don't have an aim, then you'll not be motivated to work and put your performance under the microscope to make sure that every detail is right.
Another quality that helps people succeed is creativity (创造力)—thinking about things in a different way and wondering how other people would do the same thing. Think about some successful people you know. They might be successful with a little creativity, but the most successful people are the most creative ones.
Reading is another to success, as it will help you learn about how other people have achieved success. If you want to learn how to set up a successful business, you should read books about people like Bill Gates and Jerry Yang, who have achieved amazing success in the areas of business.
Practicing is also very important if you want to succeed because practice makes perfect. Practice every day at whatever career you are in, and by doing so, you will see yourself, your business and your self-confidence begin to grow. If you feel confident about what you do, this confidence will make other people believe i n you as well. Your colleagues will be happy to work with you, and your boss will give you more responsibility. Finally, if you're a successful person, you will be able to look people in the eye and smile confidently.
Success is yours for the taking! Cheers!

I am deeply impressed by the great changes that have taken place in Wenchuan over the past ten years. I have lived here since I moved here 10 years ago. The earthquake was so strong that lots of buildings fell down. A large number of victims lived in fear of their lives, so they had no choice but to leave. Our government has made all efforts to help local people rebuild the city and encouraged them not to lose heart. Now, we are satisfied with our life. We learn to get on well with nature. Wenchuan is well worth visiting. I hope it will be better and better.
