In the far, far future, bicycles and perhaps skates may be run by jet power, and a new thing to ride may be a small flying saucer (飞碟). Imagine a race between them!
There may be telepathy helmets (心灵感应帽) that send thought waves from your brain to that of your friend miles away. You just think a thought and your friend knows it! You can have secrets with each other that nobody else can turn in on!
What about the food of the future? Scientists think that much of it will be artificial — made in factories from such surprising things as coal, limestone, air, and water. The artificial food will be healthful because all the things that you need to live a long and healthy life will be put into it.
The future hospitals will probably have “body banks” that can give you almost any new part you need to keep on living. People of the future may live to be a lot older than 100 years.
What about highways of the future? Well, a very small child probably will be able to drive a car. Nobody will need to steer (驾驶). Electric signals will hold each car on the right road to get wherever the “driver” wants to go. And it probably will be impossible for cars to smash together. Controls that won’t even have to be touched will make all speeding cars miss each other or will put on the brakes. Driving cars will be as safe as being at home.
But maybe the most wonderful surprise in the future will be weather control. Cities may have giant plastic domes (圆顶罩) over them to keep out snow, rain, or storms. When you plan a picnic in a park, you won’t have to worry about rain. It will rain only when the “weatherman” thinks it is necessary to fresh the air inside the city. All other days will be fair and warm.[来源:Z_xx_k.Com]
The future should be a wonderful time in which to live and the time we are living in now is also a wonderful future to the people who lived 100 years ago.[来源:Zxxk.Com]

John von Neumann was the oldest of 3 children of a banker, and his speed of learning new ideas and of solving problems stood out early. At 17, his father tried to persuade him not to become a mathematician because he may lead a poor life being a mathematician, and so von Neumann agreed to study chemistry as well. In 1926, at 23, he received a degree in chemical engineering and a Ph.D. in mathematics. From then on, mathematics provided well enough for him, and he never had to turn to chemistry.
In 1930, von Neumann visited Princeton University for a year and then became a professor there. His first book was published in 1932. In 1933, the Institute for Advanced Study was formed, and he became one of the 6 full-time people in the School of Mathematics (Einstein was one of the others).
World War II hugely changed von Neumann’s areas of interest. Until 1940 he had been a great pure (纯粹的) mathematician. During and after the war, he became one of the best mathematicians who put mathematics theories into practice. During the last part of the war he became interested in computing machines and made several fundamental contributions. After the war, von Neumann continued his work with computers, and was generally very active in government service. He received many awards, was president of the American Mathematical Society and was a member of the Atomic Energy Commission. He died in 1957 of cancer.
Von Neumann made several great contributions and any one of them would have been enough to earn him a firm place in history. He will be remembered as one of the greatest minds of the 20th century.
Von Neumann really was a legend (传奇) in his own time, and there are a number of stories about him. His driving ability is a part of this legend. He reported one accident this way: “I was driving down the road. The trees on the right were passing me in an orderly fashion at 60 miles per hour. Suddenly one of them stepped in my path.”
27. According to the text, Von Neumann’s father believed that ________.
A. a mathematician couldn’t earn a lot of money
B. a mathematician needed a good memory
C. Von Neumann had the ability to learn two subjects at the same time
D. Von Neumann had a gift for solving problems at a high speed
28. Von Neumann published his first book at the age of ________.
A. 23 B. 26 C. 29 D. 32
29. How did World War II affect John Von Neumann?
A. He realized the importance of engineering.
B. He began to research how to put mathematics into practice.
C. He left college and served at the government department.
D. He lost interest in chemistry.
30. From the last paragraph, we can infer John Von Neumann was _______.
A. calm B. brave C. intelligent D. humorous
Have you ever changed your mind, or even given up a dream because you were afraid of what someone else might think of you?

People can’ t be perfectly in every way. How we can do is to change ourselves to become
a better person. Recently I felt rather worrying because I didn’t well in my monthly exam. I
had been prepared well for it and worked hard for the long time. But my efforts didn’ t bring
any results. I told my mom all my feelings, and I couldn’ t help crying. She sat next to us but said
nothing until l stop crying. She wiped away the tear on my face and gave me a warm hug. I’ ll
never forget when she said ”Trust me.You are good ”. She gave me lots of energy, but l realized
that sometimes the process is more important than the result.
