The other day I heard a few local musicians talking:
“I hate all the terrible pianos in this town. I hate that rubbish they play on the radio. They can’t even understand a bit of music.”
“I’m never playing in that club again. Too many drunks and nobody listens to us.”
But, one younger musician said, “There are a few clubs that book my band a few nights a month, and I’m trying to find other places to play. I’m also looking to book a few summer festivals this year.”
I’ve heard that you are the average of the five people whom you spend the most time with, or to put it another way, you are who your friends are.
Attitudes are important. Whether they’re positive or negative, they’re rubbing off on you. If you’re around people who complain about lack of work and about other musicians, or blame others, and you play the role of victim , chances are you will start to as well. So it’s time to take a look at the people you call “friends”.
This is an easy exercise: Make a list of the people who you hang out with, and simply stop spending time with the negative people on your list. Set a new standard for yourself and don’t become friends with people who fall below that standard.
Keep successful people around you and your own chances for success will be much better. Ask them how they do it. Ask if they will help you get the work you’re looking for, or maybe give you some advice to help you on your career path.
21. Which of the following would be the best title for this passage?
A. A friend in need is a friend indeed B. How to make friendship last for ever
C. You are who your friends are D. Friends are the most important in one’s success
22. The musicians’ words at the beginning are written mainly to show ______.
A. the musicians’ living conditions are quite poor B. people have poor taste in music
C. people have different attitudes towards the same thing D. young people have greater chances of succeeding
23. By taking the exercise mentioned in Paragraph 7(underlined), you can ______.
A. improve a lot in making more friends B. come to the right way of making friends
C. develop a better relationship with your friends D. arrange the time with your friends properly
24. The passage is mainly written for ______.
A. musicians B. managers C. negative people D. people wanting to succeed
If you are a traditional traveller who believes cameras are irreplaceable，here are some things you should pay attention to when looking for the perfect camera.
Along with the megapixel (百万像素) count，the size of the sensor dictates the general image quality as well as the camera's performance in low light. It also determines whether the camera can electronically put the details it captures bigger enough to see—which is what makes the pictures not clear enough to see when you view the photos on a bigger screen.
“The important thing is that the camera isn't too big or heavy，and that you have a good zoom (变焦距镜头) range for both wide－angle and telephoto shots (远距摄影照片)，”Atherton told CNN.A good choice would be a slim，light pocket camera with a high－qualified built－in optical zoom. “These are very popular for travel as they are light，but built with a telephoto lens that can zoom up to 60 times，” Atherton said.
Zoom and shutter (快门) speed
For action or crowd shots，a fast shutter speed is a key factor. “When dealing with anything that's active—wildlife or people in action on the street—faces change within a tiny part of a second，” said Arnold，“a fast shutter speed is helpful in shooting the several hundred photos you might need to get that single winning shot.”
25. According to Atherton，what isn't a requirement for an ideal camera?
A．Portable shape. B．Wide－ranged zoom.
C．Good telephoto lens. D．Reasonable sensor size.
26．What will contribute to a satisfactory photo of a running lion in the wild?
A．The sensor size. B．The zoom range.
C．The shutter speed. D．The megapixel.
27．Which of the following can be the best title of the passage?
A．How to choose ideal travel cameras? B．How to put a camera into good use?
C．A fashionable camera—up for sale D．A high－quality camera—a modern life's must
Japanese Students Suffer from Pressure
Last April,15- year- old Rei Iwasaki stopped her piano and flute lessons and began to study every day of the week. Her parents paid to send her to a "cram school(灌输式教学模式的学校)."She wanted very much to pass her exams.
In February she did pass an all-day, five-subject examination and entered the high school she hoped to enter.
Thirteen-year-old Akio Yoshiwara wasn't so lucky. Unable to take the pressure of the exams, he hanged himself in February. He left a suicide（自杀） note which said, "I did my best in this dear life, but it's no good."
Suicides are now a common part of life among students in Japan. The cause is the incredible pressure of the "examination hell."
Even a number of teachers are committing suicide each year. When some students broke windows in a school near Tokyo, the principal blamed himself and wrote the following note: "The incidents were due to the lack of appropriate measures by the principal and I apologize. I am very tired.
The Japanese educational system is much different from the American system. It is perhaps the most regimented(严密组织的) school system in any of the industrialized nations.
Boys and girls wear uniforms and go to school six days a week --- 240 days a year compared to 180 in the U.S. Ninety- five percent graduate from high school compared to seventy-five percent in the U.S.
Students don't ask questions in class but only listen respectfully to the teachers. And every few years students are tested to see which school they will enter next. There is stiff competition for the "best" schools.
The result is a well-informed, disciplined student, ideal for factory and company work and excellent at learning specialized skills. But there is little fun in education, little creativity and the incredible pressure of "examination hell."
28. It's because ______ that many Japanese students committed suicide.
A. they didn't do their best in their lives.
B. they were sent to a "cram school".
C. of the most regimented school.
D. they were unable to take the pressure of the exams.
29. Why did the principal kill himself? Because__________
A. He thought it was his fault that some students broke the windows.
B. He was very tired.
C. He couldn't stand the pressure of the "examination hell".
D. He blamed himself and wrote a note.
30. Which of the following ideas agrees with the title of the passage.
A. The Japanese students love to study under pressure.
B. The Japanese students do well under pressure.
C. The exams give the Japanese students much pressure.
D. The exams make the Japanese students commit suicide each year.
31. Which of the following is Wrong?
A. The American educational system is much different from the Japanese system.
B. To enter a high school, a student must pass an all-day, five-subject examination.
C. The Japanese graduates from high school are much less than the American graduates.
D. In Japanese education, there is little creativity as well as little fun.
Autumn means different things to different people. “It all depends on your personality，” said British naturalist Richard Mabey. “Personality shapes your view of the season，” he said. “You may see it as a fading－away，a packing－up (结束)，or as a time of packing in another sense—the exciting gathering of resources before a long journey.”
If this is true，perhaps it tells us a little about，for instance，Thomas Hood，the 19th Century English poet. About November，he wrote：
No warmth，no cheerfulness，no healthful ease
No shade，no shine，no butterflies，no bees
On the other hand，another English poet John Keats，already sensing he was seriously ill，was inspired by a late September day to pen one of the most famous poems in the English language，To Autumn. He wrote to a friend afterwards that there was something comforting and healing about it.
According to Richard Mabey，Keats has the biological evidence on his side. Autumn is not a time of slowing down，but a time of new beginnings and great movements of creatures. For example，just at the moment that Keats's “gathering swallows” ( in To Autumn)are departing for Africa，millions of creatures are fleeing from the frozen north like Iceland，Greenland and Russia to winter along the east and south coasts of Britain. According to scientists，before falling，the leaves transfer their chlorophyll(叶绿素) and carbohydrates into the woody parts of the tree for safe keeping over winter. What remains is the natural antioxidants (防老剂) in the leaves: the yellow and orange carotenoids (类胡萝卜素)，and another protective chemical specially produced for autumn，the bright－red anthocyanin (花青素)．High colour is not a signal of deterioration (退化) and decline，but of detox (排毒的) ability and good health.
A century after Keats，the American poet Loren Eiseley wrote in his journal:
“Suppose we saw ourselves burning-like maples in a golden autumn. And that we could break up like autumn leaves...dropping their substance like chlorophyll. Wouldn't our attitude towards death be different？”
32．From Thomas Hood's poem，we may infer that ________．
A．he suffered a lot from cold November B．he missed the shining summer days very much
C．he had a negative attitude towards autumn D．he enjoyed butterflies and bees very much
33．In autumn，leaves turn yellow before falling because ________．
A．they can't bear the freezing
B．they can't get enough water from the wood part
C．chlorophyll and carbohydrates have been lost through leaves
D．chlorophyll and carbohydrates have come back to the wood part
34．From the passage we can learn that ________．
A．autumn has different faces in different people's eyes
B．John Keats was a good biologist as well as a poet
C．all creatures move from the cold north to Britain for winter
D．the three poets were only known for their poems about autumn
35．Which word can best describe Loren Eiseley's attitude towards autumn?
A．Fearful. B．Optimistic. C．Doubtful. D．Realistic.

My four-year-old son ran down the stairs very excitedly in Christmas morning and went straight for the gifts under the tree. And, to my surprise, the first gift he grabbed was a gift he had been made for his father and me. He stood there with joys and patience as we opened our gift. When I saw the gift, that was a hand-made wreath made his small handprints, I started to cry. My husband leaned over and asked how I was crying.

My four-year-old son ran down the stairs very excitedly in Christmas morning and went straight
for the gifts under the tree. Therefore, to my surprise, the first gift he grabbed was a gift he had been
made for his father and me. He stood there with joys and patience as we opened our gift. When I
saw the gift, that was a hand-made wreath made∧ his small handprints, I started to cry. My
husband leaned over and asked how I was crying. I said I can not believe the thoughtfulness of
this child. My son was most exciting about giving us the present he had made for us. I felt proud
for him. That is actually the best gift I received for Christmas.
I’m extremely sorry to tell you that I am unable to go to your party this Sunday. It is very kind of you to invite me to your house and I really look forward to going to your party and sharing your happy experiences abroad. Much to my regret, I will be absent from your party owing to the fact that the College Entrance Exam is just around the corner, for which I am now really busy preparing.
What’s worse, I have caught a bad cold lately and I’d rather I stayed at home instead of going anywhere.
Anyway, we will have many more chances to get together. Would it be convenient for you if we make it after the exam?
I’m truly sorry. I hope you will forgive me and accept my sincere apologies. I look forward to your reply!
