Sweetie is a big dog who spends every Friday of the month in the Children’s Area of our local library. Earlier today, I was so lucky to be nearby when she was partnering with a boy who was reading mystery of Magic Tree House. Every time Sweetie listened to the boy reading the most challenging words, she would softly lick (舔) his hand which was holding the book. With his mom in the background, Sweetie and the young boy shared a 10-minute happy partnership, and he was rewarded by Sweetie’s great attention to his every word.
Next Sweetie had an appointment with the twins who took turns reading poetry. With each girl giggling over the funny words, Sweetie was also smiling with her tongue dropping a bit as they each read. After the 10-minute interaction was done, each girl gave Sweetie a gentle hug and were rewarded by Sweetie’s foreleg bow.
In speaking with Sweetie’s owner and transportation “captain”, I learned that Sweetie had been specially trained to work as a service dog. She has retired (退休) after a career of wonderful service, and now she is “in her sunset years’* in her service at the library.

This is Sweetie’s third summer that she has been the “regular” partner. On Fridays from 2 pm〜4 pm, Sweetie is ready to listen and act as n devoted partner.

On Monday, April 17, 2017, a unique partnership between Saint Agatha and Phalanx Family Services began. Saint Agatha is a primary school and day care program. Phalanx Family Services is a full-service, nonprofit (非盈利的) organization offering various programming for in-need families living in Chicago.
Thirteen in-school youths, between the ages of 16〜18, started training as young reporters in an eight-week camp organized by the two organizations. The program is designed to teach them how to become city reporters. After completing the program successfully, they will receive a job reporting for one of nine online news about the project.
The very thought of 13 youths’ improving reading and writing levels and hunting for career opportunities in journalism (新闻业) is exciting! Imagine. Chicago youths report positive and inspiring stories about the happenings around Chicago’s black and brown communities, which are much better than frightening stories coming from local and national medium.
I admire Saint Agatha and Phalanx Family Services for training youths in a needed skill set. As I see it, technology has harmed youths’ reading and writing abilities. My father often says, “Youth is wasted on the young. “It sounds like the wisdom of the old. But Saint Agatha offers training and the opportunity for youths to take an active part in reporting the happenings and events they experience day to day in order to prove students don’t waste youth.
28. What is the main purpose of the eight-week camp?
A. To improve students’ interest in study.
B. To help students become more independent.
C. To teach youths how to become city reporters.
D. To let youths know about their local culture and customs.
29. What does Saint Agatha mainly show to us?
A. What our father said is right.
B. Youth is not wasted by students.
C. Technology harms youths’ reading and writing abilities.
D. Technology provides the youth with more opportunities
30. The underlined word “It” in the last paragraph refers to “ ”.
C. Youth is wasted on the young
D. Reporting the happenings and events
31. What can be inferred from the text?
A. The author is in favor of the eight-week camp.
B. Phalanx Family Services is aiming to make money.
C. The history of the city is mainly recorded by youths.
D. The thirteen in-school youths unwillingly completed the program.
As any person suffering from lack of sleep knows, dark circles under the eyes usually stand out after a bad night’s sleep.
But why do people get these dark eye bags? The answer is both genetic (that is, relating to your DNA) and environmental (a result of your everyday living, such as rubbing your eyes or getting too little sleep), said Dr. Carol Clinton, a skin-care researcher in Dublin, Ohio.
But “the biggest reason is genes.” Clinton told Live Science. Eye bags are generally more noticeable in people who, because of genes, have thin or pale skin. When people are tired or very nervous, blood circulation in the eye area becomes slow, allowing blood to pool there. Clinton said. Capillaries (毛细血管) stand out, leading to dark eye circles, she said.
Besides, eye bags result from eyes’ fat moving forward. An age-connected increase in fat beneath the eyeballs leads to eye bags. “Anyway, when your eyes’ fat is moving forward, you may think about having an operation in that area,” Clinton said, “A person can get 9 hours of sleep a night, but still have eye bags because of a genetic development.”
In other cases, environmental problems cause eye bags. For example, allergies (过敏) — especially seasonal allergies—can cause capillaries to stand out. Getting too much sun can also damage and thin the skin, making dark circles under the eyes easy to see. Besides, eating salty foods can cause the body to hold more water, which makes eye bags worse, according to the Mayo Clinic.
32. In Clinton’s opinion, what is the main cause of the formation of dark eye bags?
A. Genes. B. Habits.
C. Age. D. The environment.
33. What can rid you of your eye bags according to the text?
A. Getting much sun.
B. Drinking plenty of water.
C. Having an operation on the fat in the eye area.
D. Slowing your blood circulation in the eye area.
34. What can we learn from the text?
A. It’s possible to change genes.
B. Rubbing your eyes might cause dark eye bags.
C. People with thick skin don’t get dark eye bags.
D. You can’t get dark eye bags if you get enough sleep.
35. What’s the best title for the text?
A. What Can You Do to Protect Your Eyes?
B. The Importance of Sleep to People’s Health
C. Several Measures to Remove Your Eye Bags
D. Why Do People Gel “Bags” Under Their Eyes?
