I was walking down the road one day when my cell phone rang. 26 voice on the other end spoke to me, “Dad, please come back soon. I miss you so much!” I judged that it was a wrong number. A little while later, the call came once again, so I rudely 27 , “You’ve dialed the wrong number!” and then hung up.
During the following days, I got the same call 28 . But I didn’t care much about it.
Then one day she constantly called me, though I didn’t answer. Finally I answered the phone and heard a weak voice, “Dad, please come back. I miss you so much! Dad, I’m 29 so much pain! Mom said you were too busy to take 30 of me. But, dad, please 31 me again, OK?” The innocent (天真的, 无邪的) 32 was difficult to reject（拒绝）. I made a 33 kiss on the phone and heard the weak voice say, “Thank you…Dad, I am so…happy, so…happy…”
Shortly after this, I became 34 about who had been on the other end of my phone. So I called back, and a woman answered, “Sorry, sir. I am really sorry to have 35 you.

A popular saying goes, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” However, that’s not really true. Words have the power to build us up or tear us down. It doesn’t matter if the words come from someone’s else or ourselves --- the positive and negative effects are just as lasting.
We all talk to ourselves sometimes. We’re usually too embarrassed to admit it, though. In fact, we really shouldn’t be because more and more experts believe talking to ourselves out loud is a healthy habit.
This “self-talk” helps us motivate ourselves, remember things, solve problems, and calm ourselves down. Be aware, though, that as much as 77% of self-talk tends to be negative. So in order to stay positive, we should only speak words of encouragement to ourselves. We should also be quick to give ourselves a pat on the back. The next time you finish a project, do well in a test, or finally clean your room, join me in saying “Good job!”
Often, words come out of our mouths without us thinking about the effect they will have. But we should be aware that our words cause certain responses in others. For example, when returning an item to a store, we might use warm, friendly language during the exchange. And the clerk will probably respond in a similar manner. Or harsh（刻薄的）and critical language will most likely cause the clerk to be defensive.
Words possess power because of their lasting effect. Many of us regret something we once said. And we remember unkind words said to us! Before speaking, we should always ask ourselves: Is it loving? Is it needed? If what we want to say doesn’t pass this test, then it’s better left unsaid.
Words possess power: both positive and negative. Those around us receive encouragement when we speak positively. We can offer hope, build self-esteem（自尊）and motivate others to do their best. Negative words destroy all those things. Will we use our words to hurt or to heal? The choice is ours.
45. The main idea of the first paragraph is that ________.
A. not sticks and stones but words will hurt us B. inspiring words give us confidence
C. negative words may let us down D. words have a lasting effect on us
46. There is no sense for us to feel embarrassed when we talk to ourselves because _______
A. almost everybody has the habit of talking to themselves
B. we can benefit from talking to ourselves
C. talking to ourselves always gives us courage
D. it does no harm to have “self-talk” when we are alone
47. The underlined part in the third paragraph means that we should also timely _______
A. praise ourselves B. remind ourselves
C. make ourselves relaxed D. give ourselves amusement
48. The author would probably hold the view that ___________
A. encouraging words are sure to lead to kind offers
B. negative words may stimulate us to make more progress
C. people tend to remember friendly words
D. it is better to think twice before talking to others
A few years ago, a pilot had to have perfect eyesight and a college degree if he or she wanted to land a job with an American airline. But today, airlines have waived（宣布放弃） those requirements because they can’t find enough qualified pilots.
Airlines must hire up to 6200 new pilots in the next decade. But qualified pilots are few and far between in the United States. Every year there are more planes being flown. At the same time, 12 to 15 foreign countries are recruiting （招聘）American pilots.
As a result, pilots are earning spectacular salaries. The going rate for skilled pilots is well over $ 90,000 a year. Some pilots can earn about $ 160,000 plus free housing working for foreign airlines.
Because of the shortage, some people say unqualified pilots are being allowed to fly planes. They fear the number of crashed will skyrocket. Each year, more and more pilots with less than 2,000 hours of experience are being hired. Airlines are also bringing on board many more pilots who are older than 50, although law requires pilots to retire at age 60.
Being an airline pilot is a difficult job that requires people to make life and death decisions under pressure. Some pilots crack under the pressure.
The military is also having a hard time keeping pilots. Air Force pilots must commit to spending at least six years in the Air Force. The Air force invests millions of dollars to train each pilot, so it doesn’t want to lose them.
Experts say this problem is going to get a lot worse. Congress may establish a commission to study the country’s pilot needs. In the meantime, salaries of pilots will continue to rise and the number of crashes may keep pace.
49. The main idea of the article is ____________
A. a shortage of pilots is caused by airlines and the military.
B. there have been more crashes because pilots have worse eyesight and higher salaries
C. a shortage of pilots may lead to more crashes
D. airlines should hire more pilots even if they’re unqualified.
50. Today a pilot no longer needs __________
A. perfect eyesight
B. military training
C. two college degrees
D. to be recruited
51. Most pilots earn ___________
A. less than $ 90,000
B. more than $ 90,000
C. about $ 160,000 or free housing
D. about $ 160,000 and free housing
52. Air Force pilots should stay in the Air Force because ___________
A. the Air Force is a good place to work
B. the Air Force pays more than airlines
C. the military should have a hard time keeping pilots
D. the Air Force spends a lot of money training them
Imagine，one day，getting out of bed in Beijing and being at your office in Shanghai in only a couple of hours，and then，after a full day of work，going back home to Beijing and having dinner there．
Sounds unusual，doesnt it? But its not that unrealistic，with the development of China’s high—speed railway system．And that’s not all．China has an even greater high—speed railway plan to connect the country with Southeast Asia，and eventually Eastern Europe．
China is negotiating to extend its own high•-speed railway network to up to 17 countries in 10 to 15 years，eventually reaching London and Singapore．
China has proposed three such projects．The first would possibly connect Kunming with
Singapore via Vietnam and Malaysia．Another could start in Urumqi and go through Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan，and possibly to Germany．The third would start in the northeast and go north through Russia and then into Western Europe．w_w w. k#s5_u.c o*m
If China’s plan for the high-speed railway goes forward，people could zip over from London to Beijing in under two days．
The new system would still follow China’s high—speed railway standard．And the trains would be able to go 346 kilometers an hour，almost as fast as some airplanes．
China’s bullet train(高速客车)，the one connecting Wuhan to Guangzhou，already has the
World’s fastest average speed．It covers 1,069 kilometers in about three hours．
Of course，there are some technical challenges to overcome．There are so many issues that need to be settled，such as safety，rail gauge(轨距)，maintenance of railway tracks．So，it’s important to pay attention to every detail．
But the key issue is really money．China is already spending hundreds of billions of yuan on
domestic railway expansion．
China prefers that the other countries pay in natural resources rather than with capital
investment．Resources from those countries could stream into China to sustain development．
It’ll be a win-win project. For other countries，the railway network will definitely create more opportunities for business，tourism and so on，not to mention the better communication among those countries．
For China，such a project would not only connect it with the rest of Asia and bring some much-needed resources，but would also help develop China’s far west．We foresee that in the coming decades，millions of people will migrate to the western regions，where the land is empty and resources unused．With high-speed trains，people will set up factories and business centers in the west once and for all．And they’ll trade with Central Asian and Eastern European countries．
53．China’s new high-speed railway plan will be a win-win project because ．
A．China will get much-needed resources and develop its western regions
B．China and the countries involved will benefit from the project in various ways
C．China will develop its railway system and communication with other countries
D． the foreign countries involved will develop their railway transportation，business and tourism
54．According to the passage，the greatest challenge to the new high-speed railway plan is ．
A．technical issues B．safety of the system
C．financial problems D．maintenance of railway tracks
55．Which of the following words best describes the author’s attitude towards China’s high-speed
A．Critical． B．Reserved． C．Doubtful D. Positive．
56．Which of the following might be the best title for the passage?
A．New Railway Standards B．Big Railway Dreams
C．High—speed Bullet Trains D．International Railway Network
The 2012 London Olympics had enough problems to worry about. But one more has just been added - a communications blackout caused by solar storms.
After a period of calm within the Sun, scientists have detected the signs of a cycle of sunspots that could peak in 2012, just in time for the arrival of the Olympic torch in London.
Now scientists believe that this peak could result in vast solar explosions that could throw billions of tons of charged matter towards the Earth, causing strong solar storms that could jam干扰 the telecommunications satellites and interact links sending five Olympic broadcast from London.
"The Suns activity has a strong influence on the Earth. The Olympics could be in the middle of the next solar maximum which could affect the functions of communications satellites," said Professor Richard Harrison, head of space physics at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire.
At the peak of the cycle, violent outbursts called coronal mass ejections (日冕物质抛射) occur in the Suns atmosphere, throwing out great quantities of electrically-charged matter. "A coronal mass ejection can carry a billion tons of solar material into space at over a million kilometres per hour. Such events can expose astronauts to a deadly amount, can disable satellites, cause power failures on Earth and disturb communications," Professor Harrison added. The risk is greatest during a solar maximum when there is the greatest number of sunspots.
Next week in America, NASA is scheduled to launch a satellite for monitoring solar activity called the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), which will take images of the Sun that are 10 times clearer than the most advanced televisions available.
The Rutherford Appleton Laboratory helped to make the high-tech cameras that will capture images of the solar flares (太阳耀斑) and explosions as they occur.
Professor Richard Holdaway, the labs director, said that the SDO should be able to provide early warning of a solar flare or explosion big enough to affect satellite communications on Earth "If we have advance warning, well be able to reduce the damage. What you dont want is things switching off for a week with no idea of whats caused the problem," he said.
57. The phrase "communications blackout" in paragraph 1 most probably refers to during the 2012 Olympics.
A. the extinguishing of the Olympic torch
B. the collapse瘫痪 of broadcasting systems
C. the transportation breakdown in London
D. the destruction of weather satellites
58. What can be inferred about the solar activity described in the passage?
A. The most fatal matter from the corona falls onto Earth.
B. The solar storm peak occurs in the middle of each cycle.
C. It takes several seconds for the charged matter to reach Earth.
D. The number of sunspots declines after coronal mass ejections.
59. According to the passage, NASA will launch a satellite to _________.
A. take images of the solar system B. provide early warning of thunderstorms
C. keep track of solar activities D. improve the communications on Earth
60. Which of the following might be the best title of the passage?
A. Solar Storms: An Invisible Killer
B. Solar Storms: Earth Environment in Danger ks*5u
C. Solar Storms: Threatening the Human Race
D. Solar Storms: Human Activities to Be Troubled
