Time talks. It speaks more plainly than words. Time communicates in many ways.
Consider the different parts of the day, for example. The time of the day when something is done can give a special meaning to the event. Factory managers in the United States fully realize the importance of an announcement(通知) made during the middle of the morning or afternoon that takes everyone away from his work.
In the United States, it is not customary to telephone someone very early in the morning. If you telephone him early in the day, while he is shaving or having breakfast, the time of the call shows that the matter is very urgent(紧急的) and needs immediate attention. It is the same with telephone calls made after 11:00 p. m. If someone receives a call during sleeping hours, he probably thinks it is a matter of life or death. The time chosen for the call communicates its importance.
The meanings of time differ in different parts of the world. Thus, misunderstanding arises between people from cultures that treat time differently. In the United States, people often think of time as something fixed in nature, something from which one cannot escape. As a rule, Americans think of time as a road into the future, along which one progresses. The road has many sections(部分), which are to be kept separate…“One thing at a time”. Thus, an American may feel angry when he has made an appointment with someone and then finds a lot of other things happening at the same time.
Americans look ahead and are concerned almost entirely with the future. The American idea of the future is limited, however. It is the foreseeable future and not the future of involving (包括) many centuries.
Since time has much different meanings in different cultures, communication is often difficult. We will understand each other a little better if we can keep this fact in mind.
41. According to the passage, an announcement made during the day in a factory must be very important because_________.
A. it interrupts the work of all employees
B. it is made by the manager
C. it makes everyone lose his job
D. it communicates in many ways
42.In the United States, a phone call made after 11:00 p. m. is considered________, in the view of the writer.
A. as important as one made in the morning
B. impolite since it disturbs the receiver’s sleep
C. to be a threat to the receiver’s life
D. even more urgent than one made early in the morning
43. An American may feel angry if ____________________.
A. he is to deal with many things at one appointed time
B. people from different cultures misunderstand him
C. he cannot escape from something fixed in nature
D. others do not keep things separate
44. The underlined expression“the foreseeable future”could be most suitably replaced by ___________.
A. the future which involves centuries
B. the future that one looks forward to
C. the future that will not be far away
D. the future toward which one makes progress
When Lew Alcindor was 13, and clearly still growing, a group of schools began offering him scholarships (奖学金) . The Alcindors decided to send their only child to Power Memorial Academy, a small school on Manhattan’s West Side.
At Power, Alcindor came under the control of Coach Jack Donohue, a strict young man who already gained his fame as one of the best coaches (教练) in the city. Donohue brought Alcindor along slowly. As a first-year student, the boy was not able to do much but wave his long skinny arms and shoot a basket now and then. But by the second year, when he was 15 years old and nearly 7 feet tall, Alcindor was quick and skillful enough to make the high school All-American team and to lead Power to an undefeated (不败的) season.
From then on he simply got better. Some rival coaches （对方教练）used to take their teams quickly away from the floor before Power warmed up so that their players would not see him any sooner than they had to. Wearing size 16D shoes and sucking a lollipop (棒棒糖), Alcindor would loosen up by starting his leaping lay-ups (擦板球). Then he would casually shoot the ball with either hand, to the delight of the fans.
When reporters and photographers began to follow Alcindor closely, Donohue protected his boy firmly. He simply ordered Lew to talk to no member of the press (新闻界), and this suited Lew fine. He was not comfortable talking to grown-ups, perhaps because he towered (高耸) over them. Discouraged photographers began following him in secret as though he were an easily-frightened giraffe(长颈鹿). Once after ducking into a subway to escape, Alcindor told a friend that it was all becoming like policemen and robbers. “People want you not for yourself,” Donohue warned him, “but because you’re a basketball player. Don’t forget that.”
45. Many schools offered Alcindor scholarships because_________.
A．he was young B．he was hardworking
C．he was tall for his age D．he was skillful at playing basketball
46. Which of the following best describes Donohue as a young coach?
A．serious, popular and slow B．tall, skillful and successful
C．kind, powerful and undefeated D．well-known, strict and experienced
47. Why did some rival coaches take their teams away from the floor before Power warmed up?
A．Their teams refused to play Power B．Their teams feared to see Alcindor
C．Their teams would lose courage D．Their teams would lose interest
48. What does the last paragraph mainly discuss?
A．How Donohue protected Alcindor from the press
B．How Alcindor disliked meeting reporters
C．Why the press followed Alcindor closely
D．Why the public wanted Alcindor badly
Everyone’s at it , even my neighbors. I thought I might be the only person left in the world who hadnt done an eBay deal. So, I decided to try my hand at online auction(网上拍卖).
Buying for beginners: Sign up on www. ebay. co. uk. Most items ( e. g. tables, computers, and books) ready for auction will come with a picture and a short description; others may be marked with "Buy It Now" and have a fixed price. You can buy these right away.
If the item is being auctioned, you offer the highest price you are prepared to pay and eBay bids (出价) for you. The bid will be increased little by little until it goes beyond your highest bid, then you are emailed and asked if you would like to bid again. Auctions last up to 10 days and when they finish you get an email telling you whether you have won the item.
How to pay: Sellers decide how they would like to be paid and you need to check this before placing a bid as you might not want to post a cheque or postal orders. The easiest way is through PayPal, an online payment system that takes the money away from your credit card (信用卡).
Selling made simple: If you plan to sell on eBay, it helps to include a picture of the item. I followed my friends advice and put up the items I wanted to sell for a 10-day auction, starting on a Thursday. This way buyers had two weekends to bid.
The big things in life: It s easy to post a small item, but furniture is a big part of eBay and this has to be collected or sent by deliverymen. Check the ways of delivery before you bid.
49. What is the passage mainly about?
A. How to make payment online.
B. Ways of making delivery online
C. Advantages of an online-auction system.
D. How to use an online-auction system.
50. After bidding for an item, a buyer______
A. will get what he wants in ten days
B. should make payment immediately
C. has chances to make higher bids
D. may check its picture and description
51. The easiest way of making payment mentioned in the passage is______
A. through an online payment system
B. through a local banking system
C. by sending the money to the seller
D. by paying the deliveryman directly
Have you ever wondered why birds sing? Maybe you thought that they were just happy. After all, you probably sing or whistle when you are happy.
Some scientists believe that birds do sing some of the time just because they are happy. However, they sing most of the time for a very different reason. Their singing is actually a warning to other birds to stay out of their territory.
Do you know what a “territory” is? A territory is an area that an animal ,usually the male, claims（声称）as its own .Only he and his family are welcome there .No other families of the same species（物种）are welcome .Your yard and house are your territory where only your family and friends are welcome. If a stranger should enter your territory and threaten you, you might shout. Probably this would be enough to frighten him away.
If so, you have actually scared the stranger away without having to fight him .A bird does the same thing. But he expects an outsider almost any time ,especially at nesting（筑巢）season. So he is screaming all the time, whether he can see an outsider or not. This screaming is what we call a bird’s song, and it is usually enough to keep an outsider away.
Birds sing loudest in the spring when they are trying to attract a mate and warn others not to enter the territory of theirs.
You can see that birds have a language all their own. Most of it has to do with attracting mates and setting up territories.
52.Some scientists believe that most of the time birds’ singing is actually______. .
A．an expression of happiness B．a way of warning
C．an expression of anger D．a way of greeting
53．What is a bird’s “territory”?
A．A place where families of other species are not accepted.
B．A place where a bird may shout at the top of its voice.
C．An area for which birds fight against each other.
D. An area which a bird considers to be its own
54．Why do birds keep on singing at nesting season?
A．Because they want to invite more friends.
B．Because their singing helps frighten outsiders away.
C．Because they want to find outsiders around.
D．Because their singing helps get rid of their fears.
55．How does the writer explain birds’ singing?
A．By comparing birds with human beings.
B．By reporting experiment results.
C．By describing birds’ daily life.
D．By telling a bird’s story.
The days of elderly women doing nothing but cooking huge meals on holidays are gone. Enter the Red Hat Society －a group holding the belief that old ladies should have fun.
“My grandmothers didn’t do anything but keep house and serve everybody. They were programmed to do that,” said Emily Cornette, head of a chapter of the 7-year-old Red Hat Society.
While men have long spent their time fishing and playing golf, women have sometimes seemed to become unnoticed as they age. But the generation now turning 50 is the baby boomers(生育高峰期出生的人), and the same people who refused their parents’ way of being young are now trying a new way of growing old.
If you take into consideration feminism(女权主义), a bit of spare money, and better health for most elderly, the Red Hat Society looks almost inevitable(必然的). In this society, women over 50 wear red hats and purple(紫色的) clothes, while the women under 50 wear pink hats and light purple clothing.
“The organization took the idea from a poem by Jenny Joseph that begins: “When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple. With a red hat which doesn’t go,” said Ellen Cooper, who founded the Red Hat Society in 1998. When the ladies started to wear the red hats, they attracted lots of attention.
“The point of this is that we need a rest from always doing something for someone else,” Cooper said. “Women feel so ashamed and sorry when they do something for themselves.” This is why chapters are discouraged from raising money or doing anything useful. “We’re a ladies’ play group. It couldn’t be more simple,” added Cooper’s assistant Joe Heywood.
56．The underlined word “chapter” in paragraph 2 means __________.
A．one branch of an organization
B．a written agreement of a club
C．one part of a collection of poems
D．a period in a society’s history
57．From the text, we know that the “baby boomers” are a group of people who
A．have gradually become more noticeable
B．are worried about getting old too quickly
C．are enjoying a good life with plenty of money to spend
D．tried living a different life from their parents when they were young
58．It could be known from the text that members of the Red Hat Society are .
A．interested in raising money for social work
B．programmers who can plan well for their future
C．believers in equality between men and women
D．good at cooking big meals and taking care of others
59．Who set up the Red Hat Society ?
A．Emily Cornette. B．Ellen Cooper.
C．Jenny Joseph . D．Joe Heywood .
60．Women join the Red Hat Society because .
A．they want to stay young
B．they would like to appear more attractive
C．they would like to have fun and live for themselves
D．they want to be more like their parents

One possible version:
Yesterday afternoon, I went home after school. I wanted to help my father to sweep the floor, but he said, “You neednt do that. Do some reading!” Later when I was watching TV, my mother came, turned off the TV and said, "You shouldnt waste your time watching TV. Go to study!"
As a middle school student, I wonder if I should spend all the time on my study. In fact, there are many other things for me to learn, too! By watching TV I can learn about latest news from home and abroad. I can broaden my knowledge from watching TV as well.
