For Zack, the shave was more than just a way to fund lifesaving research. It was a way to honor his late brother, Taylor Frink.
Taylor, a volunteer firefighter in North Carolina, was killed in a car accident last September. Before his passing, Taylor was an eager supporter of St. Baldrick’s. He went bald（秃头）for the cause in 2015, supporting kids with cancer and raising money to find cures.
As a local hero, Taylor was beloved by the community. When he died, more than 1, 000 people attended his funeral to pay their respects. Zack looked up to his brother and this was the reason why he decided to become a junior firefighter himself. They did everything together. Zack remembers.
Zack knew his brother had planned to shave again in 2016, so without hesitation he decided to fill his shoes and registered to shave at the local St. Baldrick’s event in Kinston, N. C.
“He was always goodhearted, and I want to make my brother proud,” shares Zack.
As part of Zack’s kindnesses, he raised more than $ 1,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation primarily by selling T-shirts he designed. Leading up to the event, Zack also visited his city council, commissioner’s office and challenged the local official department to get involved.
“We are not going to let Taylor’s name be forgotten. That is what I love about St Baldrick’s,” says Jean Culbreth, volunteer event organizer. “Zack gets it. He gets that what he is doing is keeping his brother’s name alive.”

“Belittle” was first used by Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States.
Many years ago, Buffon, a French naturalist, wrote some books about natural history. The books were a great success even though some critics did not like them. Some critics said, “Buffon is more of a poet than a scientist.”
Thomas Jefferson did not like what Buffon had said about the natural wonders of the New World. It seemed to Jefferson that Buffon had spoken of natural wonders in America as if they were unimportant.
This troubled Thomas Jefferson. He was a naturalist, as well as a farmer, inventor, historian, writer and politician. He had seen the natural wonders of Europe. To him, they were no more important than those of the New World.
In 1788, Thomas Jefferson wrote about his home state, Virginia. While writing, he thought of its natural beauty and then of the words of Buffon. At that moment, Jefferson created a new word－belittle. He said, “Buffon believes that nature belittles her productions on this side of the Atlantic.”
Noah Webster, the American word expert, liked this word. He put it in his English language dictionary in 1806, “Belittle－to make somebody or something small, unimportant.”
Americans had already accepted Jefferson’s word and started to use it. In 1797, the Independent Chronicle newspaper used the word to describe a politician the paper supported. “He is an honorable man,” the paper wrote, “so let the opposition try to belittle him as much as they please.
In 1872, a famous American word expert decided that the time had come to kill this word. He said, “‘Belittle’ has no chance of becoming English. And as more critical writers of America, like those of Britain, feel no need of it, the sooner it is forgotten, the better.” This expert failed to kill the word. Today, “belittle” is used where the English language is spoken.
28. What was the reason for Jefferson’s creating the new word?
A. He was a naturalist and writer.
B. Lots of critics disliked Button’s books.
C. He disagreed with Buffon’s views on natural wonders in America.
D. Lots of critics thought Buffon wasn’t a real naturalist.

D. The English-speaking countries.

Look and listen, and that concert poster just might be singing. Engineers have designed antennas（天线）that can turn everyday objects, from posters to clothing, into radio stations. Anyone walking or driving by can tune in and hear what’s on. The devices use radio waves, but they don’t generate their own. They hijack（劫持）the same waves that carry music and news to your smartphone.
Vikram Iyer co-led the project with Anran Wang, a graduate student in computer science and engineering. The two got the idea for their invention by paying attention to what was already around them. “It’s the ideal way to minimize the power consumption for any kind of communication,” notes Iyer. Their research had focused on new types of wireless
communications that won’t require much energy. They wanted something that would work outdoors in a city. Then they realized the air is already filled with wireless communications in the form of radio stations.
Radio waves carry energy at the speed of light from tall transmission towers to radios in cars, phones and homes. These waves of the antennas take in existing radio waves and change them slightly. Those changes add new sound information. The changed waves are then sent back out into the world where people can listen in. So the device only needs enough power to change the waves, not to generate them.
The scientists tested their device with a poster. It advertised a Seattle concert by Simply Three. People standing almost 4 meters away from the poster could use FM receivers on smartphones to listen to all songs of the band’s music, Those in cars as far as 18 meters away could use car radios to pick up some parts of the songs
The technology could even extend to clothes. Iyer, Wang and their team turned the shirt into an antenna. It let the shirt talk to the wearer’s smartphone. If a sensor in the shirt tracked a person’s heart rate during exercise, for instance, the antenna could transmit those data to the wearer’s phone.

A. The way the antennas take in radio waves.
B. The working principle of the antennas.
C The benefit people can get from the antennas.
D. The situation where the antennas can be used
35. What can be inferred from the text?
A. The antennas can be available at present.
B. Vikram Iyer created the antennas with much money.
C The antennas cannot be used in the students dormitory and classroom.
D. The closer people stay to the antennas, the stronger signals they pick up.
It’s Friday morning, and you’re taking another test. Are you ready? Students who do well on tests often have good study skills, but good study skills involve a lot of preparations as well as studying. Here are a few simple strategies（策略）that will help.
Read ahead. 36 . Highlight or make notes of things that you feel are important, and share your thoughts during classroom discussions. Also, by reading ahead, class time can be used more efficiently to discuss questions or topics that need clarification. Clarifying questions in class will free up more time to review and study the new material at home.
Take good notes. Good notes make great studying tools. Good note taking involves a lot more than copying notes from the board. 37 . Pay attention to textbook pages that are relevant to the discussion.
Make flashcards. Flashcards are great review tools for basic math facts or word definitions. Write the word or question on one side and the definition or answer on the other side. 38 . Make one pile for flashcards that were remembered, and make one pile for flashcards not remembered. The more you review the flashcards, the smaller the flashcards pile not remembered should be.
39 . Get together with a few friends and quiz each other on the material and notes you’ve collected for the test. Explain or describe in your own words what the material is about, and compare the information you have collected with each other.
40 . Being prepared for class, participating during class, and reviewing after class are good strategies so that you have the most accurate and best materials to study.
A. Study in a group
B. Review notes daily
C. As you review them, make two piles
D. Doing it helps you better prepare for class

We may have different opinion on organizing class activities. When having a different opinion, I may choose to give it and respect the opinion of the majority. The mainly reason for my choice is that I was bringing up in a culture emphasizing collectivism（集体主义）. So I tend to sacrifice my own interest for the beneficial of the group. Last Sunday, we argued about whether to have a picnic in a park and go to a museum. I would love to go to a museum, but most of my classmates want to go for a picnic. Which is often the case, I decided to follow with them, and we did have lots of fun that day. Sometimes giving up a little means get more.

One possible version:
We all hope to be popular with our classmates and teachers. To win popularity, we are supposed to regard the class as our big family and try our best to take an active part in all our class activities. We should be responsible for the work and have teamwork spirit in mind.
To be a popular student, we must show our respect, concern and sympathy to others. We should never hesitate to lend a hand to those in need. To be a popular student, we ought to be strict with ourselves about everything we do at school and make an effort to achieve all-round development, being good not only at our lessons but also at other aspects.
