The Smallest Life Around Us
Tiny plants and animals live all around us．We cannot see them because they are so small，but they are everywhere. They live in the soil，in the air，and in rivers and oceans．They grow on mountains and in caves．Some live in the ice at the north and south poles; some live where it is very hot．They are found throughout cities and in the country. They grow on other plants and animals．Some are even living on you，on your skin，hair，and inside your body，in your mouth，nose，and all through your body．
These tiny plants and animals are called microbes．The word microbe is made from two other words：micro，meaning small，and bios，meaning life．So，microbe means small life．
Microbes have been on eart h for a very long time．They may have been the first forms of life to be alive．Today there are more microbes in the world than all other living things．
People did not know microbes had existed（存在） long．They were too small for them to see．But people did see many changes in their world﹣important changes．And they did not know what caused them．They saw food that they kept too long change color and begin to smell bad．They saw cuts and wounds grow red and painful and become worse. They saw old plants and leaves and trees crumble apart on the forest floor and disappear into the soil．Such changes were a natural part of the world，but people did not understand them．They did not know these changes were evidence(证据) of tiny plants and animals growing all around them.
23．Why couldn't people see microbes？
A．Because they are too small．
B．Because they live inside our body．
C．Because they live far from humans．
D．Because they may have been the first forms of life to be alive．
24．The underlined phrase" crumble apart" in the last paragraph means" "．
A．grow taller B．change into soil
C．break into tiny pieces D．become colorful and energetic
25．Choose the answer that completes the web below．
A．Microbes are very small B．Microbes are all around us
C．People can't see microbes D．Food begins to smell bad
I used to think that life in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, was filled with never-changing styles. I hated that everyone seemed to know everything about everyon e else. Everyone seemed to enjoy talking about other people and their lives. I also didn’t like the fact that people seemed very close-minded. I felt trapped. I felt like I was missing . It seemed to me that city life would be the opposite.
Then I took my first trip to New York City. I couldn’t wait to experience the city. However, when I arrived in the Big Apple, it wasn’t at all what I had imagined. I knew it was home to thousands of people, but I hadn’t had the least expectation to see so many people on the street at one time. All the streets were filled with people. I also felt a little surprised to see that everyone was in a hurry and everything moved at such a fast pace(步伐). When I took the su bway for the first time, I said hello to the middle-aged woman next to me. She looked at me with dislike and didn’t say a word.
After just one day, I realized how important my small town is to me. Now I miss the familiar faces I see every day. I like the feeling of safety and belonging m y town offers. Jim Thorpe gives me a sense of community and togetherness that the city doesn’t provide. I realize just how much a simple hello does for a stranger — it really can make your day a little better.
My big trip showed me that my small town really has its own values in me that I didn’t even know I had. I never would have known what a big place my town holds in my heart if I had not taken that trip to New York City.
26. What surprised the author most in New York City?
A. The gestures of greeting. B. The modern transportation.
C. The modern life. D. The crowded streets.
27. What made the author change his / her attitudes to his /her hometown?
A. Travelling to New York City. B. The familiar faces in Jim Thorpe.
C. Greeting the middle-aged woman . D. Everybody likes talking about others.
28. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. Love of my small town
B. A sense of community
C. A pleasant trip to New York City
D. Differences between big cities and small towns
When US student Olivia Priedeman, 17, woke up one morning, she thought she had had a dream ab out making plans with a friend.
But it wasn't a dream. Her phone showed that during the night, Priedeman had read a text message from her friend. She did it while she was fast asleep.
Reading and sending text messages while asleep called─ "sleep texting"─ is an unusual sleep behaviour, similar to sleep walking. It's also a growing problem among doctors: young people can’ t live without their cell phones.
One in three teenagers sends more than 100 text messages a day, according to the Pew Internet & American Life Project. And at least four out of five teenagers said they sleep with their phone on or near their bed.
Elizabeth Dowdell, a professor at Villanova University in Pennsylvania, has studied sleep texting. She said that having a phone nearby all night is a big part of the problem.
Andrew Stiehm, a sleep medicine researcher with Allina Health in Minnesota, agrees. It's possible for the part of the brain that controls skills to wake up, while the part of the brain that controls memory and judgment(判断) may be still asleep. That's why some people can perform basic movements-such as walking, talking, texting or even driving while they're sleeping. Some of Dowdell's students said that they're disturbed by their nighttime texting behaviour. But because sleep texting is unconscious, it's a difficult habit to break. Dowdell said she knows of some students who wear socks on their hands to keep themselves from texting.
Marjorie Hogan, a doctor at Hennepin County Medical Centre in Minneapolis, Minnesota, suggests keeping all electronic products outside the bedroom.
29. What happened to Olivia Priedeman?
A. She sleepwalked to a friend's house.
B. She dreamed of making plans with a friend.
C. She phoned one of her friends during the night.
D. She read a text message from her friend while asleep.
30. What does the underlined word "unconscious" mean?
A.无意义的 B.无意识的 C.无反应的 D.无规律的
31. What can we learn from the passage?
A. It's easy to give up a sleep texting habit.
B. One in three teenagers has a sleep texting habit.
C. Sleep texting can reduce the quality of one's sleep.
D. Sleep texting does more harm to one's health than sleep walking.
"Face it，Andy．You sold your heart the day you put on that first pair of Jimmy Choo's．"That line from the movie The Devil Wears Prada is an example showing how a shoemaker has become famous in the fashion world．
Jimmy Choos （Zhou Yangjie）was born in Malaysian and he is a Malaysian Chinese，born in 1961 into a family of shoemakers．He created his first pair of shoes at age 11．His family couldn't pay for his schooling，so he dropped out at a young age．He had to work with his father to support the family．But his dream to be a fashion designer never disappeared，so he did all he could to enter an art college and finally took up a position in the fashion world through his talent and willpower．
Choo graduated from a college in London and had a small workshop there．He hit the international fashion scene when Vogue magazine described his designs in eight pages in 1988．His work was immediately popular and got love and support from Diana，Princess of Wales．
Jimmy Choo shoes are known for their very high heels（鞋跟）and pointed toes．However，he does some flats and lower﹣heeled shoes for other women．Choo co﹣founded Jimmy Choo Ltd．with Tamara Mellon，UK Vogue editor，but left the company in 2001．
Jimmy Choo shops have opened around the world，so his designs are easier to get to those who want a designer shoe，and can afford his prices．Choo also has a website where shoppers can view his ready﹣to﹣wear designs．The brand（牌子）of Jimmy Choo has been comparable to top brands，like Channel，LV，etc．But it's still young and has a bright future．
We can't imagine how hard it is for Choo to stand out in the worldwide fashion! He must have made greater efforts and had more difficulties than others．And so he did．So stop complaining about why good luck isn't always falling on you and devote yourselves to your work now．

If we agree that education is used to prepare us for life, then there is very little time to waste. So, while we can, we should teach children something really useful. Here is what our school should teach．
Politeness is a mark of civilization（文明）.The sooner children learn this, the better. In any case, a lot can be achieved by a smile and good manners. Like it or not，our adults work hard for money, but we don't make an effort to teach children how to manage it. So our schools have a duty to teach them this ability from the beginning．
We're likely to accept something we are told, but that's not what educated people do. Educated people are reasonable and they look at facts. If our schools teach nothing else, they should at least teach critical（批判性的）thinking．
Children should learn to take care of their health. They should know that if they eat junk food, they will become fat and unhealthy. They should be very clear about what happ ens to their bodies when they drink or smoke．
All of us are part of society. We have rights and duties. We should understand what they are. We have to know a little bit of history and geography, because we need to have an environment in which to communicate with the people around us.
In a word, our schools should spend every moment they have telling this to our children: “This is life，this is what you are going to face，and this is how you deal with it."

Nowadays, many people are crazy about their mobile phones. They look at their phones everywhere all the time, taking no notice of the people around them.
There is a lot of phubbing around me. My cousin likes playing with mobile phones very much. He can’t stop sending text messages, surfing the Internet, playing mobile games and even taking photos with mobile phones.
However, phubbing disturbs not only our studies, but also our life. Phubbing, whether playing phone games or sending text message, particularly in class or at work, is a big waste of time. What’s more, it can lead to health problems. For example, using a mobile phone too much can cause eyes or back and neck pain.
In my opinion, it is time for us to throw away our phones and raise our heads. We should do more exercise and take part in real-life activities. When we use phones properly we can live a happy life.
