My father was always a good gardener. One of my earliest memories is standing without shoes in the freshly tilled(翻耕的) soil, my hands blackened from digging in the ground.
As a child, I loved following Dad around in the garden. I remember Dad pushing the tiller(耕作机) ahead in perfectly straight lines. Dad loved growing all sorts of things yellow and green onions, watermelons almost as big as me, rows of yellow corn, and our favorite—red tomatoes.
As I grew into a teenager, I didn’t get so excited about gardening with Dad. Instead of magical land of possibility, it had turned into some kind of prison. As Dad grew older, his love for gardening never disappeared. After all the kids were grown and had started families of their own, Dad turned to gardening like never before. Even when he was diagnosed with cancer, he still took care of his garden.
But then, the cancer, bit by bit, invaded his body. I had to do the things he used to do. What really convinced me that Dad was dying was the state of his garden that year. The rows and rows of multicolored vegetables were gone. Too tired to weed them, he simply let them be. He only planted tomatoes.
For the first few years after he died, I couldn’t even bear to look at anyone’s garden without having strong memories pour over me like cold water from a bucket. Three years ago, I decided to plant my own garden and started out with just a few tomatoes. That morning, after breaking up a fair amount of soil, something caught the corner of my eye and I had to smile. It was my eight-year-old son Nathan, happily playing in the freshly tilled soil.

Sure. you know their names, possibly better t han you know the name of the street you live on. When the need comes, these names roll off our tongues like they were our own brothers. I am writing about the famous Webster’s Dictionary and Roget’s Thesaurus.
When it refers to Webster’s Dictionary, Many people can respond immediately: Noah Webster. We are aware that he is the father of the dictionary. But who was he? What did he do for a living? When did he live?
Noah was born in 1758, graduated from Yale University in 1778. and later graduated from law school. He produced the first American dictionary in 1806 and published his important work An American Dictionary of the English Language in l828. His interests led him to be a lexicographer (词典编纂者), textbook editor, author, Bible translator and spelling reformer. He also produced a large number of writings in medicine, mythology (神话), and the relationship of European and Asian languages. In addition, he founded the first New York daily newspaper in 1793. He died in 1843.
Rogets Thesaurus, it gives us the chance to learn about Roget, the man-Peter Mark Roget, And who? What? When?
Englishman Peter Roget, MD, was born in 1779. He studied medicine and mathematics at the University of Edinburgh. He is considered as the creator of the first-ever thesaurus (同义词典). It has been called one of the three most important books ever printed, along with the Bible and Webster s Dictionary. He began his work Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases in 1805 but did not publish it until 1852-47 years later. In his lifetime, he became a famous lecturer and writer on anatomy(解剖学 ), geology(地质学), bees，and more . When Roget died in 1869 at age 90, his son, John , took over the Thesaurus arid he gradually expanded.

My name is Amber and I want to share my story with you because what youve shared about life and positive energy has changed my life. This past year has been one of the hardest for me. I felt I was stuck in a position that had nothing to do with what I wanted to do with my life. In January, after two years of being together, my boyfriend left me.
I read your blog every morning as I drink my coffee at work, but it wasnt until this March that I told myself "no more negativit y" as you taught readers in your blog.
Since then Ive got into new habits at work to keep my energy positive. When people walk in the front door, Im the first face they see, so I smile big when I say "good morning" to them, especially on Mondays.

Why do we laugh and get amusement from so many different things，from puns (双关语) to pratfalls? Why are some things funny to some people and not to others? How is that while a successful joke can cause pleasure，a sick one can cause serious harm?
Over the centuries，various scholars have attempted to produce a universally agreed-upon theory of humor．Plato and Aristotle introduced the superiority(优越感) theory，the idea that people laugh at the misfortune of others．Their theory seems to explain teasing，but it doesn’t work well for knock-knock jokes．Sigmund Freud argued for his relief theory，the concept that humor is a way for people to release psychological tension and reveal their inner fears and desires．His theory works well for dirty jokes，less well for most puns．
The majority of humor experts today agree with the incongruity(不一致) theory，the idea that humor arises when there’s a gap between what people expect to happen and what actually happens．Incongruity has a lot going for it — jokes with unexpected funny lines，for example，fit well．But scientists have found that in comedy，unexpectedness is overvalued．
With the goal of developing a new，more satisfactory explanation，I produced “the gentle violation(违背)theory”，the idea that humor arises when something seems wrong or threatening，but is actually OK or safe．A dirty joke，for example，trades on mor al or social violations，but it’s only going to get a laugh if the person listening is open enough to consider the subject OK to talk about．Similarly，puns can be seen as language violations that still make grammatical sense．
And while most humor theories have struggled to account for tickling (挠痒痒)，or just avoided the phenomenon altogether，my theory accounts for even this kind of laughter．Tickling involves violating（违背） someone’s physical space in a gentle way．People can’t tickle themselves — because it isn’ t a violation．
67. What is the author’s attitude towards Plato and Aristotle’s theory?
A. Disapproving B. Approving C. Uncaring D. Unclear
68. According to Sigmund Freud’s theory，we can infer that __________ .
A. people will laugh when they see others suffer
B. telling dirty jokes is a relief of one’ s nervous feelings
C. unexpectedness can explain how humor works
D. tickling doesn’t involve psychological tension
69. According to the author，why are some things funny to some people but not to others?
A. Because the sense of humor varies greatly from person to person．
B. Because people have different expectations for the same thing．
C. Because some people lack the sense of safety deep in their heart．
D. Because people’s understanding of violation is different．
70.What is the author’s main purpose of writing this passage?
A. To draw people’s attention to the research of humor．
B. To criticize people’s misunderstanding about humor．
C. To explain what exactly causes people to laugh．
D. To prove the sense of humor can be developed．
