Sleep difficulties are a common problem for millions of adults. Even if you can get to sleep, you might have trouble staying asleep. So what gives? There are several factors that may affect your sleep.
Probably you already know caffeine is a stimulant and can affect your ability to fall asleep. But it can also lead to poor quality sleep including waking up in the middle of the night. Caffeine has a three-to-five-hour life, which means it takes your body many hours to get rid of half the caffeine you consumed. Keep in mind, energy drinks, cola, chocolate, Red Bull and certain teas also contain caffeine. Besides, some drugs, Amoxillin and cough syrup rather than Tylenol and panadol contain caffeine, too. Your best bet is to avoid caffeine about six hours before bed.
It is generally believed that stress and lack of sleep seem to go hand in hand. If you are stressed, it can be hard to sleep well and may lead to middle of the night insomnia（失眠）. When you don’t get enough sleep, that can also lead to more stress and it becomes a vicious cycle（恶性循环）.
Environment is another factor contributing to poor sleep. For example, loud noise can wake you up from a sound sleep or light peeking through the shades can wake you. Fortunately, there are ways to make your bedroom more sleep-friendly. Invest in a quality mattress and comfortable bedding and consider keeping your bedroom cool, which most people find helps sleep.
If you are struggling for optimal（最佳的）sleep, it is important that you avoid alcohol before bed. You know alcohol may help you get to sleep, but the bad news is that it actually can affect your quality of sleep. As the alcohol metabolizes（新陈代谢）and the effects wear off, it prevents deep sleep, which causes restless sleep throughout the night. Consider limiting alcohol a few hours before you go to sleep.
24. Which of the following doesn’t contain caffeine?
A. Cola and milk.
B. Tylenol and panadol.
C. Panadol and Amoxillin.
D. Red Bull and cough syrup.
25. According to the passage, which of the following statements is correct?
A. To sleep well, we should avoid caffeine.
B. Alcohol actually can affect your quality of sleep.
C. A cool bedroom is sure to help people to have a good sleep.
D. Stress and lack of sleep always lead to middle of the night insomnia.
26. How many main reasons mentioned in the passage contribute to people’s not sleeping well?
A. 6. B. 5. C. 4. D. 3.
27. What does the passage mainly tell us?
A. Ways for people to fall asleep.
B. How to avoid oversleep at nights.
C. Reasons why people can’t fall asleep.
D. Factors that may affect people’s sleeping quality.
In big cities, you can often see hundreds of people walking with their heads down as they use their mobile phones.
But this actually changes the way people walk. According to a research recently published in the journal Motor Behaviour, people walk in a far more exaggerated（夸张的）way while using a phone.
The scientists at the University of Delaware in the US asked 22 volunteers to dial numbers on their mobile phones while walking on a treadmill（跑步机）for two minutes. The walkers wore 62 markers on different parts of their body, which were recorded by cameras to measure their movements.
The experiment showed that while they were distracted by dialing numbers, the volunteers began to walk in a strange, exaggerated way. Their knees bent as far as they could on each step.
The researchers said that people do this without realizing because their body senses that they are in more danger of falling over. The large, exaggerated movements help people move through crowds and deal with moving faster.
“People’s walking speed usually gets slower when they perform other tasks at the same time,” said Kelly Seymour from the University of Delaware, the first author of the study. “However, in today’s fast-paced world, people are often rushed and do not slow their walking speed. Even if they do, they remain more likely to fall while walking and performing another task than while only walking.”
The researchers also found that the participants made few mistakes in dialing numbers. This suggests that they focused more on dialing than walking.
The problem of text-walkers has become such a problem that last year Antwerp in Belgium brought in “text-walking lanes” so that they do not put others in danger.
28. What does the underlined word “this” in paragraph 5 refer to?
A. Using their mobile phones.
B. Knees’ bending on each step.
C. Being distracted by dialing numbers.
D. Walking in a strange, exaggerated away.
29. What can we infer about text-walkers from Kelly Seymour’s words?
A. They probably have a fall.
B. They tend to walk very slowly.
C. Their movements aren’t affected.
D. They can perform multiple tasks with ease.
30. What do you think of the strange, exaggerated walk according to the passage?
A. It’s beneficial. B. It’s harmful.
C. It’s conscious. D. It’s deadly.
31. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. Silly Walk Caused by Phone Use
B. The Effects of Phone Use on Health
C. Text-walking Lanes for Text-walkers
D. Overuse of Mobile Phones in the US
You feel proud of yourself as a person who is not terribly attached to earthly possessions, and then you have tp part with something and feel your heart tighten.
Our oldest daughter Alice is having trouble letting go of a red couch. If you saw the couch you’d say, “That way to the dump（垃圾场）.”
It’s not the couch she’s having trouble letting go of as much as the memories. It was their first sofa. It has been loaded and unloaded onto moving trucks seven times. Three kids have jumped on it. It’s so worn that the only way you could sell it would be in the dark, which is probably why it’s in the basement. Yet she’s having a hard time letting go and asked if I thought that was strange. “Completely,” I said. “You get it from me.”
When we were ready to get rid of our baby things, I sold our crib（婴儿床）at the neighborhood garage sale. I had pieces of it in the garage and the other pieces to it still in the house. A young woman said she wanted to buy it. My throat tightened and the tears began to well. She pulled out cash and I kept up my spirits.
But by the time I returned with the other pieces to the crib, I was all out crying. “Have you considered that maybe you’re not ready to sell it?” the woman asked. “No-o-o-o,” I sobbed. “It’s fine, really.” I cried. “Take it.”
Our attachment to stuff grows in direct relationship to the amount of time it has sat in one place. The longer it sits, the harder it is to get rid of it. You think, “Hey, we’ve hung onto it this long—it must be valuable! As though yellowing, a layer of dust and the scent of mould increase value.
Let the sofa go, I told my daughter. It served its purpose. You can get a new one. Give the kids some crackers and juice boxes and it will be like the old one is six weeks.
32. Which of the following can replace the underlined phrase “part with” in paragraph one?
A. put away B. give away C. turn down D. pull down
33. Why did Alice want to keep the red couch?
A. It’s still new. B. It’s worth a lot of money.
C. It’s beautiful. D. It’s full of childhood memories.
34. How did the author feel when selling their baby things?
A. Angry. B. Relieved. C. Sad. D. Grateful.
35. What will the author do with the old stuff?
A. She will let them go.
B. She will keep using them.
C. She will store them in the basement.
D. She will give them to the poor people for free.
For a language learner, taking part in a public speech is one of the best ways to improve your speaking skills. 36 . If you can avoid them in your speech, you will make great progress.
The use of “I feel”, “I think” and “maybe”
In many public speechless, the speakers tend to use some uncertain expressions like “I feel”, “I guess”, “maybe” and “perhaps”. 37 . Therefore, instead of the empty sounding “I guess”, using facts, together with a clear conclusion based on those facts is far more likely to be popular with an audience.
Don’t stick to the same tone. It can be boring. Try to mix it up. For example, when they spoke about their dreams, some sounded romantic. Others used humor. Very few used several different styles together. Try mixing more than one style, rather than just sticking with the same one.
Public speaking is different from personal conversations. You are responsible for your words. Even though you want to answer quickly, you don’t want to sound foolish. 39 .
Talking around the topic rather than directly answering it
40 . The key is to work out what question is being asked. Use one or two arguments together and give a strong conclusion. Remember that judges are not judging you on whether they agree, but on your ability to say what you think clearly.
A. Using only one speaking style
B. Improving your communication skills
C. Here are some good suggestions for you
D. So you should think twice before you talk
E. You should focus on one point and give a clear solution
F. However, there are some common problems in question and answer session
G. These words show that the person is only speaking from his or her point of view

We’re often told to “eat a rainbow” and we aim for the very guideline 61 says the more color a food has, the 62 (good) it is. However, color is just one indicator of nutrient content. Some white vegetables, such as garlic and onions, contribute 63 (quantity) of nutrients that we seem to be missing most often. They 64 (know) as shortage nutrients, too.
Asian from 65 (taste) great, garlic has been regarded as being able to help hair grow, cause black heads to disappear and keep a cold and flu away. Its antioxidant characteristics can help 66 (strong) your immune system.
Chef Julia Child said: “I cannot imagine a world 67 onions.” The anti-inflammatory（消炎的）chemical in onions, 68 (call) quercetin, can help relieve discomfort from arthritis（关节炎）. They have been associated with a lower risk of cancer and heart disease.

On an equal weight basis, the white potato provides as much fiber 69 and more potassium than other 70 (common) consumed vegetables or fruit. Potatoes also provide Vitamin C and Vitamin B6, in addition to small amounts of high-quality protein.
I was sitting in a crowd restaurant in a small town, enjoying a tasty meal with my friend’s family. The atmosphere was hot and loud. How I couldn’t get used to was the cigarette smoke that fill the air. Although it used to be the same for me in his hometown. the noise was also a relative new experience. Glanced around the room, I found smiling diners were blowing the smoke to the face of their friends and families. We stood up, paid the meal and left. Later that night, I asked my friend the reason of that his parents were willing to put up with it. He said that they felt it was a simply unavoidable. It’s just a part of our modern life.
