It was on the early afternoon of a midOctober day in 2012. Bismark Mensah, who came to America several months ago, was collecting carts (手推车) outside a Walmart in Federal Way. It was a parttime job for him. He earned $9.05 an hour in charge of getting carts out of the parking lot.
He was used to finding stuff in carts that customers had somehow forgotten—keys, credit cards, wallets. And he turned them into a customer service. But a particular item stood out. It was a white envelope with a clear window in the middle, and there was a lot of cash in it, around $20,000. Mensah turned them into customer services.
Because of what he did that afternoon, Mensah is now the winner of Walmart's national 2013 “Integrity(正直) in Action Award”．

He plans to return to Ghana to run some shops owned by his family. He also plans to go to college and earn a degree in business administration.

1．How many times did you brush your teeth yesterday?

3．How often do you think about fighting germs?
Finding: Seniors are not fighting germs as well as they should.

Elizabeth Bishop, who was famous for the poetry A Prodigal, Filling Station , Sandpiper, Manuelzinho and so on, was an influential(有影响的) American poet of the 20th century. Her poetry often shows things that concerned her throughout her life, such as her search for a sense of home. Her troubled childhood and feelings of loneliness from this time affected her character and poetry.
Bishop's painful childhood is apparent(显面易见的) in some of her poems. Her father died when she was eight months old and her mother was mad when she was five. Bishop was raised firstly by her mother's parents and then by her father's parents. This experience left her confused about belonging. She had no home and this was shown in her poetry. In “A Prodigal”， when the character in the poem makes up his mind to go home, there is a sense of pessimism for Bishop who has no home. The lack of a sense of home has contributed to her depression(消沉) all her life.
Bishop attempts(企图) to make small, everyday experiences extraordinary in her poems such as “Filling Station”. In “Filling Station”， Bishop describes the beauty of a family filling station. Although it is “dirty” there is order in it. Simple family life is celebrated in it. She recognizes the value of home and beauty in everyday life, but she is only an observer of these. Distance remains between her and the family at the filling station.
Bishop's struggle to locate herself in the world is seen no more clearly than in “Sandpiper”. It deals with searching for something in a confusing world. She uses the metaphor(暗喻) of the bird which is “looking for something”. The “something” isn't specific(特殊的). It seems as if the bird doesn't know what he wants; the only certain thing is that he is searching.
Bishop's poems are personal on a more subtle (巧妙的)level, especially when her childhood, travels, etc, are taken into consideration. It is believed that Bishop is a complex(复杂的)poet who uses her poetry to find this feeling of belonging.
29．What do we know about Elizabeth Bishop's childhood?
A．She was born poor. B．Her parents didn't love her.
C．Her grandparents treated her badly. D． She lived an unhappy life.
30．When reading Bishop's poems, people can find her search for ________.
A．the true nature of human being B．a happy family life
C．the feeling of belonging D． parental love
31．Which of Bishop's poems shows her love for simple family life?
A．Sandpiper. B．Filling Station. C． Manuelzinho. D．A Prodigal.
32．Which of the following words can best describe Bishop?
A．Clever and strong. B． Gifted but pessimistic.
C．Unfortunate but kind. D．Creative and determined.
A new study shows students who write notes by hand during lectures perform better on exams than those who use laptops.
Students are increasingly using laptops for notetaking because of speed and legibility(清晰度)．But the research has found laptop users are less able to remember and apply the concepts they have been taught.
Researchers performed experiments that aimed to find out whether using a laptop increased the tendency to make notes“mindlessly”by taking down word for word what the professors said.
In the first experiment，students were given either a laptop or pen and paper.They listened to the same lectures and were told to use their usual notetaking skills.Thirty minutes after the talk，they were examined on their ability to remember facts and on how well they understood concepts.
The researchers found that laptop users took twice as many notes as those who wrote by hand.However，the typists performed worse at remembering and applying the concepts.Both groups scored similarly when it came to memorizing facts.
The researchers' report said，“While more notes are beneficial，if the notes are taken mindlessly，as is more likely the case on a laptop，the benefit disappears. ”
In another experiment aimed at testing longterm memory，students took notes as before but were tested a week after the lecture.This time，the students who wrote notes by hand performed significantly better on the exam.
These two experiments suggest that handwritten notes are not only better for immediate learning and understanding，but that they also lead to superior revision in the future.
33．More and more students favor laptops for notetaking because they can ________.
A．get higher scores B．digest concepts better
C． write more notes D．understand lecture better
34．While taking notes，laptop users tend to be ________.
A．mindless B．tireless C．thoughtful D． skillful
35．The author of the passage aims to ________.
A．examine the importance of longterm memory
B．promote the use of laptops
C．explain the process of taking notes
D． stress the benefit of taking notes by hand
To be successful people
Here are some opinions about successful and unsuccessful people.
Make life plans and set goals
You can’t be successful without knowing where you are going. A life vision board, 10 years’ plan and daily goals are useful of the successful people. 36

Study every day
38 whether you are reading a magazine or a good book. You can learn and become knowledgeable as you read. While watching television may be good entertainment, you will hardly get anything out of TV to help you become more successful.
Want others to succeed
When you are in an organization with a group of people, in order to be successful, you all have to be successful. 39 If you wish for their failures, why even work with them at all?
Accept responsibly for your failures
Where there are ups, there are most always downs. Being successful persons means always having to accept responsibly for your failures. 40 It just puts other people down and no good comes from it.
A. Blaming others solves nothing.
B. Your failures help your successes.
C. I want to be a great father and husband.
D. We want to make our life plans and goal.
E. Get your vision and goals down on paper.
F. Studying everyday educates you on new subjects.

Very weak, he said to me, in a __56__， “Nobody stopped. Thank you.” I looked into his eyes for a moment in __57__， but much was spoken without a word being said.
As the __58__ ambulance siren(警笛声) announced the arrival of help, a number of __59__ rushed at me: sadness for the Winter Man and __60__ that I didn't walk past another person in need. I was amazed that it had been so easy to be helpful.

The day before yesterday, on Thursday, I lost my umbrella. It’s said that 7,000 people lose their umbrellas in London every year. And all these umbrellas go to the Lost and Found Offices. However, hundreds of years ago, only rich and important people used umbrellas in ancient countries like India, China and Egypt. These rich people didn’t use umbrellas in the rain. They used them in the sun. Of course, poor people worked in the sun, but they didn’t have umbrellas. The Chinese invented the first umbrella for use in the rain. Starting in the 16th century the umbrella became popular to the western world. Umbrellas appeared in Britain about 400 years ago. At first, only women had umbrellas. Men didn’t like them. In 1750, a traveler named Jonas was the first man to use an umbrella on the street in England. The first umbrella shop was called “James Smith and Sons”. The shop was opened in 1830, and it is still located at 53 New Oxford Street in London now.
