Many Shopping malls now have special areas that offer shoppers their first chance to experience “VR technology” You may have entered one out of curiosity, or you may think it is just another piece of useless technology. Whatever your opinion, VR, or virtual（虚拟的）reality, is going to become a big part of our lives very soon.
2016 saw the introduction of many fancy products in the world of VR, including Microsoft’s HoloLens and Samsung’s Gear VR. All of them offer an exciting look at the new realities” and opportunities that VR brings.
These, however, are the early days of a technology that is expected to go from strength to strength. And 2017 looks like it is going to be the year in which VR technology really takes off.
For a start, using VR will become more normal in 2017.Microsoft and Intel have already discussed their plans for simpler and less expensive VR headsets.
The idea of VR will stop being a sci-fi (science-fiction) idea, and instead it will turn into an industry of real products used as ways to show off imagination.” said Andrew, a designer at US VR Company, Survios.
It is also expected that VR products will play a part in more common and real-life fields like fashion and film. For example, to enjoy the atmosphere and energy of the front row experience at a fashion show, fans will no longer have to go along in the flesh. Instead people will be able to enjoy the experience by just wearing a VR headset at home.
You can also expect VR mirrors and fitting-rooms sooner rather than later. “This is an especially good opportunity for brands looking to offer very personalized experiences.” said Roy DeYoung from US-based marketing agency, PMX.
As time goes on, there will be less discussion about whether people will accept VR technology. It will simply be a discussion of when.

Day in and day out. Rose, a neat, well-dressed, dark-haired young woman carries out her work at an office in a business park near Cambridge and spends hours studying pictures of children being abused（虐待）. She watches the images again and again, looking for the tiniest details that might deliver a young victim from hell. They might be as small as the titles of books on a table, the action of making the bed or the images on the posters on the wall-anything that might provide a clue to the place where the child is suffering, and might finally lead the police to the abuser.
How can Rose decide to do such work? And all that for a salary of less than $23.000 a year? She said her motivation in joining the work was to protect the public. “When I first started this job, there was anger at the beginning. But when you see what the children have to endure, you know someone has to be there to protect them. If I can play a small part, I will help make a difference.”
The 33-year-old woman is enthusiastic about her job. Rose and her team have done what they could to put the children’s life back together. They are very proud of what they have done.
The nature of her work has changed her for the better. “I’m a lot more focused on the positive, much more relaxed about the world. I enjoy the good people around me,” she says. Rose thinks that her job is a bit like giving blood. Maybe you don’t like doing it, but someone has to. She regards it as her duty to help abused children.

C. Rose makes a difference to the world.
D. Rose’s life has been positively affected by her job.
Robots will have taken over most jobs within 30 years leaving humanity facing its “biggest challenge ever” to find meaning in life when work is no longer necessary according to experts. Professor Moshe Vardi, who works in Rice University, says that many middle-class professionals will be assisting the work of machines within the next few decades leaving workers more leisure（休闲）time than they have ever experienced and as a result, the rise of robots could lead to unemployment rate greater than 50 percent.
“We are approaching a time when machines will be able to do better than humans at almost any task,” said Vardi, “Robots are doing more and more jobs that people used to do. I believe that society needs to face this question before it’s upon us. If machines can do almost any work humans can do, what will humans do? The question I want to put forward is, ‘Does the technology we are developing finally benefit mankind?’”
Prof. Vardi said existing robotic and artificial intelligence (Al) technologies were already getting rid of a growing number of middle-class jobs and that pace of advancement in the field is increasing.
But Prof. Vardi is not sure that a workforce of human like robots will be good for mankind. “A typical answer is that if machines will do all our work, we will be free to pursue leisure activities,” he said. “I do not find this a promising future, as I do not find the idea of leisure-only life appealing. I believe that work is important to human well-being.” He added, “Humanity is about to face perhaps its greatest challenge ever, which is finding meaning in life. If machines can do all the work or even 50 percent of the jobs that we used to do, what will people do?”
32. What is unavoidable if using robots more often?
A. There will be more workers out of work.
B. People will live a meaningless life.
C. It’s unnecessary for everyone to work.
D. Machine will replace humans in all ways.
33. What caused middle-class jobs to be removed?
A. Workers’ free time. B. AI technologies.
C. Society needs. D. Working efficiency.
34. What’s Prof. Vardi’ s attitude about a workforce of human like robots?
A. Opposed. B. Uncaring. C. Concerned. D. Supportive.
35. What will people's future life be like?
A. Busy. B. Challenging. C. Miserable. D. Unattractive.
Best Way to Save Money
Although the best way to save money can vary from person to person, depending on age, family size and other characteristics, there are still some easy things that all shoppers can do to keep more money in their bank accounts.

When you shop, a best way to save money is to have a plan in mind to help you avoid impulse purchases. 36 And you only carry the exact amount of cash that you will need for your planned purchase. Some shoppers agree to discuss any purchases over a certain dollar amount with their spouses（配偶）first.

Check classified ads, thrift stores and garage sales for used clothing, toys, furniture, and much more available at a part of their original cost. 39 And there members offer unwanted items for free to anyone willing to pick them up.
• Borrow instead of buy.

Last term, I began to study at a boarding（寄宿）school. One evening, the sky was getting 41 and it was raining outside. I walked out of the classroom, 42 and sleepy, and a sense of loneliness hit me. I questioned myself: I was away from 43 , but where was my heart?
Admittedly, I grew up in a warm family with my parents 44 a lot of time looking after me. I had 45 left my parents before, but this time. I had to go through the pain of 46 good-bye to my dearest parents, and all I could do was to be independent and put all my 47 into my study. Seeing so many strange faces passing me, I had to hide my 48 deeply in my heart.
49 , when I went back and opened the dorm door, I heard: “Why are you all wet? Why didn’t you 50 an umbrella with you? You may get ill. Take off your wet clothes…” One of my roommates ran over to me and asked me several 51 questions.
Suddenly, a 52 sense came back to me. It was home! It was at the exact moment 53 I realized I had a new 54 , and all my classmates and my roommates were my family members! Although I had left the protection of my parents, I became 55 and learned how to fit in with society.
Because I have been studying at my high school for a whole term, the warmth of my classmates has replaced my 56 . Looking back my past days at school, I am surprised to find that I have 57 so much both physically and mentally.
I have also learned a lot and 58 my horizons（视野）with them. When I 59 , I am surprised to see how far I’ve come. I can only 60 all my kind and friendly classmates who gave me a place to put my heart.

I’m a student from Guilin No.6 Middle School, in Guangxi. I’m glad to learn that you want a few part-time English reporters, which I am quite interested in.
I think I am fit for the job. As a student, I’ve read a lot and have much knowledge in many fields. I am fond of English and do well in writing as well as speaking. Besides, I’m easy to get along with and enjoy working together with others. Above all, I once worked as a reporter for my school broadcasting station.

I am looking forward to your early reply.
