    NEW YORK— Picking a Christmas tree takes most people a few minutes, or a couple of hours if they head for the woods. Dave Murbach needs 11 months.

        Almost every day of every year, Murbach’s thoughts turn to vision of a perfectly shaped evergreen tree that will take everyone's breath away.

         Murbach is the man responsible for finding the towering tree that makes more attractive Manhattan’s Rockefeller Center each Christmas season.

         “I'm always looking for a tree,” the center's chief gardener says. “I look for it even when I go to the beach in the summer. It’s like a homework assignment hanging over your head.”

         And if he gets it wrong, there's nothing hiding it.

         “Every day it's up, 400,000 people go by, and 2.5 million people watch the lighting celebration on television,”he says.

        This year’s tree, a 74-foot Nomy spruce (云杉) from Richfield, Ohio, flown to New York on the world's largest cargo plane, was lighted on December 2.

        The arrival of the tree leads in the Christmas season in New York — a tradition dating back to 1931, when the workers building Rockefeller Center put up a small tree with ornaments. 

         The search for the next year's tree starts soon after the old tree is chopped up for wood chips and horse-jumping logs.

        Murbach has three standards: The tree must be at least 65 feet high, at least 35 feet across and leaves dense enough not to see through.

        That's not as simple as it sounds. Though forests are full of evergreens, few get enough sunlight or space to fill out. And branches in snow regions often break under the weight, making trees unbalanced.

        Back at the office, he sorts through hundreds of letters from people offering their trees, many addressed simply to “Mr. Christmas Tree Man.”

    Though there was occasional anxiety attack and sleepless night, Murbach knows the effect the tree has on people: “It's for bringing people together, attempting to bring together people you love. That's what I hope it sets off.” But Murbach says he's always too worn out to celebrate Christmas.

    58. Which is the correct order of the events in the passage?

    a. Murbach’s thoughts turn to a perfectly shaped tree.

    b. 2.5 million people watch the Christmas tree.

    c. The tree is flown to New York.

    d. It was lighted on December 2.

    e. The tree is chopped up.

    f. Murbach searches for the tree.

    A. a, b, c, d, e, f                  B. c, d, b, f, e, a     C. c, d, e, b, a, f             D. a, f, c, d, b, e

    59. Why does Murbach take his job seriously?

    A. Because he wants everyone to be happy with his choice.    

    B. Because he hopes to make everybody unable to breathe.

    C. Because he enjoys showing off.            

    D. Because he wishes to attract people's attention to himself.

    60. According to Murbach' s standard of trees, the best tree must _____.

         A. be evergreen                                               B. have lots of space between their branches

    C. be tall enough not to see through                   D. be equally balanced

    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) ---- About 140 pilot whales that stranded(使...搁浅) themselves on a remote stretch of New Zealand beach have died, but conservation workers and volunteers are hoping the remaining 60 or so will survive after they managed to get them refloated, an official said Saturday.
        The geography of Farewell Spit on the South Island seems to work against whales, which regularly become stranded there. The stranding of 198 whales on Friday was one of the largest in recent years and inspired 80 workers and volunteers to help out.
        By late Saturday, 140 of the whales had died, said Department of Conservation area manager Andrew Lamason.
        He said the workers and volunteers worked throughout the day to keep the surviving whales watered and covered before refloating them during Saturday night’s high tide.
        “We’ve had a really good crew of volunteers, and people have been wanting to come from all over the country,” Lamason said.
    He said the surviving whales had moved to deeper water. But he cautioned that although hopes for their survival were high, whales had been refloated in the past only to return and get stranded again.
        Lamason said the scale(
    规模) of the stranding has been tough on the helpers, both physically and mentally.
    “It’s very sad, they’re very intelligent animals,” he said. “The common view is that it’s part of nature.”
        The focus will now turn to the dead whales, and the enormous task of dealing with the remains, Lamason said, adding that in the past helpers have typically buried them in the sand, but that he’s not sure what the approach will be this time.
        He said the department had been experimenting with moving the the dead whales into the water, which has the advantage of providing food for other sea creatures.
    21. What is the exact number of whales stranded last Friday
        A. 198     B.140.     C. 80.     D.60
    22. Why did the volunteers have to wait until Saturday before they could refloat the whales
        A. Because they were very busy on Friday.
        B. Because the whales were too intelligent.

    C. Because they had to wait for the sea water to rise.
        D. Because the whales were buried deep in the sand.
    23. Which of the following words can be used to describe Lamason’s attitude towards the
        result of refloating the whales
        A. Optimistic.    B. Doubtful.   C. Positive.     D. Careless.
    24. How will the volunteers deal with the dead whales this time according to Lamason ?
       A. They will bury them in the sand.

    B. They do not have any exact idea yet.
    C. They will throw them into the ocean.
    D. They will feed them to other sea creatures.

    BEIJINGFamily planning officers will handle the illegal birth case of film director Zhang Yimou by following legal procedures, a government spokesman said on Tuesday, December 10, 2013.

    When asked to comment on Zhang’s case at a press conference, Yao Hongwen, spokesman for the National Health and Family Planning Commission(NHFPC), said “Every citizen is equal before the law and nobody is allowed to have privileges(特权)to give birth to more children than allowed.”

    Yao’s comment came after media stories claimed that Zhang had remarried and fathered a total of seven children: one with his former wife, three with his present wife, Chen Ting, and another three from two lovers.

    “The NHFPC’s attitude towards citizens’ birth violations(违法)is consistent and clear. Every Chinese citizen should obey and safeguard the seriousness of laws and regulations.” NHFPC spokesman Yao Hongwen said.

    China’s family planning policy, introduced in the late 1970s to slow down the country’s growing population, limits most urban couples to one child and most rural couples to two. The policy was recently relaxed, allowing couples to have two children if one of them is an only child.

    Those who break the policy face severe fines. The amount of the fine is generally several times the yearly annual income of the two spouses(配偶). Some media calculations put the fine that Zhang may face at as much as 160 million yuan(over $26 million).

    Zhang’s birth case has caused criticism online about famous people who have more children than the policy allows.

    In an open letter on December 1, Zhang admitted that the couple has two sons and daughter and they are willing to accept investigation and punishment according to China’s laws and regulations. He apologized to the public.

    However, the letter denied that Zhang had lovers and was father to as many as seven children from various mothers.

    Zhang, one of the “fifth generation” of Chinese filmmakers, made his first directorial work in 1987 with “Red Sorghum” and has won a number of award worldwide. He was chief director of the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympic Games.

    25. The purpose of the news report is to_______.

    A. claim that Zhang Yimou remarried and fathered a total of seven children

    B. inform us that Zhang’s illegal birth case will be dealt with by the government

    C. convince us that Zhang is a famous director and his case will be pardoned

    D. confirm that Zhang’s illegal birth case has resulted in lots of criticism online

    26. According to Yao Hongwen, which of the following statements is true?

    A. Every Chinese citizen should obey and safeguard laws and regulations.

    B. Few people have the privileges to give birth to more children than allowed.

    C. China’s family planning policy has never been relaxed since introduced.

    D. Zhang will be fined as much as 160 million yuan for his violations.

    27. Judging from the recent relaxed policy, a couple_______.

    A. can have as many as three children if they live in a rural area

    B. will definitely be fined if they have two children nowadays

    C. can give birth to two children if one of them is an only child

    D. can only give birth to two children if they live in an urban area

    SAN FRANCISCO—A phone app(应用程序)in San Francisco gives information about open parking spotsCity officials in San Francisco introduced the app to try to reduce traffic jams in the city, but some say it raises safety concerns

    In this city, drivers searching for parking spots lead to 30 percent of all downtown jams, city officials thinkNow San Francisco has found a solution — a phone app for spot-seekers that shows information about areas with available spacesThe system, introduced last month, relies on wireless sensors(感应器)fixed in streets and city garages that can tell within seconds if a spot has opened up

    But the system could come with serious consequences. Some people say that drivers searching for parking could end up focusing on their phones, not the road“It could be really distracting(使分心的),” said Daniel Simons, a professor of psychology at the University of Illinois

    City officials admitted the hidden problem. They are urging drivers to pull over before they use the city’s iPhone app, or to do so before they leave home. Nathaniel Ford, executive director of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, said safety could actually improve if drivers quickly found a spot instead of circling and getting frustrated

    San Francisco has put sensors into 7,000 parking spots and 12,250 spots in city garages.If spaces in an area open up, the sensors communicate wirelessly with computers that in turn make the information available to app users within a minute, said Mr. Ford, of the transportation agency. On the app, a map shows which blocks have lots of places(blue) and which are full(red)

    More than 12,000 people have downloaded San Francisco’s app, which is available now only for the iPhone.

    25. What is the phone app mentioned in the text mainly aimed at?

    A. Benefiting iPhone users.

    B. Preventing traffic accidents.

    C. Making the traffic flow smoothly.

    D. Making full use of the parking spots.

    26. According to the text, San Francisco city officials ________.

    A. don’t consider the app distracting.

    B. believe more parking spots are needed.

    C. advise drivers to park cars slowly.

    D. are aware of the app’s disadvantages.

    27. The phone app mentioned in the text ________.

    A. is a bit slow in reacting

    B. can’t be downloaded to all phones

    C. was introduced several years ago

    D. hasn’t been put into service

    28. What’s the main idea of the passage?

    A. Looking for parking spots contributes greatly to downtown traffic jams.

    B. Safety concerns are voiced about a phone app aimed at helping drivers find parking spots.

    C. A phone app has been introduced to relieve the pressure on traffic in the city.

    D. Drivers’ attention is distracted in one way or another when they are driving.

    CALIFORNIA, USA — People in the western state of California who are in the United States illegally can now request a driver's license. The law went into effect on January l. California is not the first American state with such a law, but it has the largest number of illegal immigrants. More than a million people began to request licenses shortly after the new state law went into effect. Among them was Christian Alvarado. Mr. Alvarado entered the United States from El Salvador eight years ago without permission from the U.S. government. Some call such people "illegal immigrants." Others call them "undocumented immigrants".

         Mr. Alvarado thinks it so exciting, for he has been waiting for the license for a long time. But some are worried that their personal information will be used to find them and deport them. Armando Botello is a spokesman for the California Department of Motor Vehicles, or DMV. He says people should not be afraid, for such information will not be shared.

    The new licenses are the same as licenses given to citizens except that they have the words "Federal Limits Apply". That means the license cannot be used to travel on an airplane or enter a federal building. Ana Garcia, working at the Central American Resource Center, says some illegal immigrants fear those words will be used to abuse them. Civil rights groups say the police and others will not.

         Dan Schnur, a political scientist at the University of Southern California, said that the main argument against the new law is that it rewards illegal behavior. But Professor Schnur argued that young, white Americans generally support immigration reform, including giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants

         "It's simply because they grew up in a much more multicultural society than their parents or their grandparents did." Professor Schnur says he believes the changes in beliefs about illegal immigrants that have taken place in California will spread throughout the United States.

    1. Why did the new law make Mr. Alvarado excited?

    A. Because he can request a driver's license.

    B. Because he became a legal immigrant of California.

            C. Because he got his driving license as an illegal immigrant.

            D. Because a law went into effect for the new immigrants.

    2. What is the difference of the new licenses compared to those given to citizens'?

            A. The words “Federal Limits Apply” will abuse illegal immigrants

            B. They can't be used to travel on an airplane or enter a federal building.

            C. They can be used to act against the police and other people.

            D. With the words "Federal Limits Apply", immigrants can enjoy special rights.

    3. What's the public's attitude towards the new law released on January l in California?

            A. supportive          B. negative         C. neutral              D. controversial

    Xinhua News---The Beijing government has set out to recruit thousands of university graduates to work as junior officials in rural areas to both improve rural administration and ease the city’s employment problems.

        The government plans to recruit 3,000 university graduates this year, 1,000 more than last year, to work as assistants to village heads or party secretaries in suburban areas.

        People interested in jobs in Beijing’s rural villages and towns can send applications to Beijing Municipal Bureau of Personnel or log on to www.bjbys.com from February 1 through March 15.

    “We hope university graduates will seize this opportunity to use their knowledge in rural villages and to start their careers,” Sun Zhenyu, the Deputy Director of Beijing Personnel Bureau, told Xinhua News Agency.

        The government has promised successful candidates a monthly salary of 2,000 yuan in the first year, 2,500 yuan the second year and 3,000 the third year, provided their performance is up to the required standards, Sun said.

        Wang Lina, who graduated from Beijing Union University last year, was one of the first graduates to find work in the city’s countryside. After majoring in Industial and Commercial Administration, Wang served as the assistant to the village head of Ertiaojie Village in suburban Beijing’s Pinggu District. For one project, Wang contacted people at Beijing Academy of Agricultural and Forestry Sciences and arranged for the local farmers to receive training in strawberry planting. Her efforts paid off. The village had a plentiful harvest of organic strawberries earlier this year.

        Nationwide, about 150,000 university graduates found employment in rural areas last year, according to the figures provided by the Ministry of Education.

    The ministry predicts that 4.95 million students will graduate from universities across the country this year, 820,000 more than last year. About 1.4 million of them are unlikely to find jobs when they graduate.

        In Beijing, a record of 200,000 people are expected to graduate from university this year. Less than half of them are expected to be offered jobs, according to Beijing Personel Bureau.

    32. From the story of Wang Lina we can learn that _________.

         A. Wang had great difficulty in helping villagers plant organic strawberries

         A. force                B. employ                  C. encourage                 D. train

    34. The last two paragraphs seem to tell us that ________.

         A. it is not easy for graduates to find jobs nowadays

         B. more and more graduates will work as junior officials

         C. the universities should not enroll so many students

         D. there are more and more jobs provided by the Ministry of Education

       JOHANNESBURG—They say cats have nine lives. Now a Chinese toad(蟾蜍)   has joined that club of clever survivors.

       South Africans are shocked at the endurance of a toad that got trapped in a cargo shipment from China to Cape Town, after jumping into a porcelain(瓷器) candlestick(烛台) that was made there. South African officials reportedly planned to put down the creature, fearing it would cause harm as an invasive species if it were let go in the wild.

       But the toad got a last-minute pardon. Mango Airlines, a South African airline, transported the toad on Friday to Johannesburg for delivery to an animal shelter, after officials decided to find a way to let the toad live. The two-hour fight was a breeze compared to the trip from China, a long way of many weeks and thousands of kilometers across the Indian Ocean.

       Airline spokesman Hein Kaiser said the toad got “first-class treatment”, sitting in a transparent plastic container with escort Brett Glasby, an animal welfare inspector. There was even a ceremony, in which the toad’s boarding pass was handed to Glasby.

       “He was the star of the show on the flight,” Kaiser said of the amphibious(两栖的) passenger. “I think every passenger stopped to have a look.”

       On landing in Johannesburg, the toad was brought out of its container for a celebrity-style photo shoot. Observers said the brown toad seemed like a cool customer. It belongs to the Asian Toad species, which breeds during the monsoon(季风) season. It is believed to have survived the trip from China by hardening its skin to prevent it from drying out, and also by slowing its breathing and heart rate—methods that help the species survive in times of drought.

       “We’ve had snakes in imported timber and scorpions(蝎子) in fruit. We were called because the toad was right inside the candlestick, and we had to break it to get it out” Glasby, the inspector, told The Star, a South African newspaper.

    28. What is the passage mainly about?

    A. An Asian toad gets a new home in South Africa.

    B. Asian toads can’t get used to the life in South Africa.

    C. Workers shipped a toad to South Africa on purpose.

    D. South Africa ignores the protection of animals.

    29. If the toad is released into the wild, _________.

    A. it will make the locals feel shocked

    B. it might harm the native species

    C. it will lose its life in the wild

    D. it might flee into another country

    30. The toad was able to arrive in South Africa alive_________.

    A. because it escaped all attacks and hunts

    B. because it used to stop its breath in winter

    C. because it formed hard skin to protect itself

    D. because it was lucky to be given a chance

    31. It can be inferred from the passage that_________.

    A. sometimes animal are transported accidentally

    B. no one has seen such a big toad in Africa

    C. a candlestick is the best place for a toad

    D. droughts make toads live longer

    MARCH 05, 2013

    TOKYO (AFP)—A father froze to death while sheltering his nine•year•old daughter from severe weekend snowstorms that swept northern Japan. Mikio Okada, one of at least nine people killed as snowstorms swept across Hokkaido (北海道), died as he tried to protect his only child Natsune against winds of up to 109 kilometers per hour in Yubetsu, Hokkaido, as temperatures fell sharply to minus 6 degrees centigrade.

    Okada's body was uncovered by rescuers looking for the pair after relatives raised the alarm. Natsune was wearing her father's jacket and was wrapped in his arms. The pair had last been heard from at 4 p. m. on Saturday, after fisherman Okada picked his daughter up from a school where she was being looked after while he was at work. Okada called his relatives to say his truck had become stuck in the

    driving snow, which was several meters deep in places. He told them he and Natsune would walk the remaining kilometer. The two were found just 300 meters from the truck at 7 am. on Sunday.

    Okada had his body bent over his daughter, gently holding her in his arms and apparently using his body and a warehouse wall to provide shelter. The small girl was taken to hospital, where she was found to have no serious injuries. Her father was officially pronounced dead by doctors at the same hospital.

    The newspaper Yomiuri said Natsune's mother had died of illness two years earlier. The paper quoted neighbors as saying Okada had been an extremely caring father who would often delay the start of his working day to enjoy breakfast with his daughter.

    His death came as families all over Japan celebrated Girls' Day, a festival in which they gather at home and decorate houses with dolls. He reserved a cake for his only daughter and was looking forward to celebrating Dolls' Festival together,” a neighbor told the Yomiuri.

    29When the disaster happened, the father and daughter were   .

    Areturning home after visiting relatives Bjust 300 meters away from home Cdriving home after a visit to a hospital                Don their way home from the girl's school

    30Which of the following doesn't show the father's love for his daughter?

    AOkada called his relatives to say his truck had become stuck. BOkada had his body bent over his daughter.

    COkada had been looking forward to Dolls' Festival. DNatsune was wearing her father's jacket.

    31What can we infer from the passage?

    AThe relatives were not careful enough and raised the alarm too late. BNo one cared for Natsune at home while her dad was at work. CThe rescuers' delay resulted in the avoidable death.

    DOkada had just celebrated Girls' Day with his daughter before he died.

     32Which of the following might be the best title for the passage?

    A9-year-old girl made orphan in snowstorm BSnowstorm takes away 9-year-old girl's father CFather dies sheltering daughter from snowstorm DJapanese dad dies in snowstorm

    SAN FRANCISCO—A phone app(应用程序)in San Francisco gives information about open parking spotsCity officials in San Francisco introduced the app to try to reduce traffic jams in the city, but some say it raises safety concerns

    In this city, drivers searching for parking spots lead to 30 percent of all downtown jams, city officials thinkNow San Francisco has found a solution — a phone app for spot-seekers that shows information about areas with available spacesThe system, introduced last month, relies on wireless sensors(感应器)fixed in streets and city garages that can tell within seconds if a spot has opened up

    But the system could come with serious consequencesSome people say that drivers searching for parking could end up focusing on their phones, not the road“It could be really distracting(使分心的),” said Daniel Simons, a professor of psychology at the University of Illinois

    City officials admitted the hidden problemThey are urging drivers to pull over before they use the city’s iPhone app, or to do so before they leave home. Nathaniel Ford, executive director of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, said safety could actually improve if drivers quickly found a spot instead of circling and getting frustrated

    San Francisco has put sensors into 7,000 parking spots and 12,250 spots in city garagesIf spaces in an area open up, the sensors communicate wirelessly with computers that in turn make the information available to app users within a minute, said Mr. Ford, of the transportation agencyOn the app, a map shows which blocks have lots of places(blue)and which are full(red)

    More than 12,000 people have downloaded San Francisco’s app, which is available now only for the iPhone.

      SAN FRANCISCO- Only 21 percent of workers worldwide are“engaged"-that's the word used to describe workers who are ready to expend some extra effort at work-while 38 percent are disengaged, according toa new survey.

      “Engagement is not satisfaction or happiness, but the degree to which workers connect to the company emotionally, and the degree to which workers are aware of what they need to do to add value and are willing to take that action," said Julie Gebauer, a managing director of Towers Perrin,  a  consulting firm, which surveyed almost 90,000 workers in 19 countries.

      “Happy employees don't necessarily create better financial results, but there is a  definite link between engagement and a company's financial performance," Gebauer said.

      The survey found 21 percent of workers worldwide are engaged, and another 41 percent are ”enrolled", which means they're on the road to engagement.

      More than 80 percent of the engaged employees say they contribute to the quality of company products, services and customer satisfaction, while only 40 percent of disengaged workers agree.

      Engagement helps retention(留置)too. About 50 percent of engaged employees say they have no plans to leave their company versus 15 percent of the disengaged.

      “The fact that almost 80 percent of workers are disengaged is likely costing   companies money." Gebauer said.

      “The conception of engagement is really a financial issue," said Gebauer.   ‘Organizations that have employees that are highly engaged deliver better financial results than those that don't. "

      In a separate study, Towers Perrin assessed data on 40 global companies over a three-year period, measuring employee engagement at a certain point and then looking at the companies' financial results over the following three years.

      Companies with highly motivated workers enjoyed a 3. 7 percent increase in profits, while companies with a lower level of worker commitment saw a decrease in profits slightly.

      What makes for an engaged employee? It's not necessarily pay. While the level of pay is important, it's not among the top 10 drivers of engagement. Rather than only using the pay, companies should survey their work force, much as they might study their customers, to assess what employees are seeking.

    25. The underlined word “ienrolled" in Paragraph 4 means        .

    A. engaged                    B. disengaged

    C. over-engaged                D. not yet but to be engaged

    26. According to the text, among 500 disengaged employees, how many would probably have the intention of leaving their company?

    A. 50.            B. 75.             C. 250.          D. 425.

    27. What would probably be talked about following the last paragraph?

    A. The top ten drivers of engagement.

    B. The reason to encourage engagement.

    C. The importance of the pay level in engagement.

    D. The survey of work force in a company.

       BEIJING — Rising smartphone star Xiaomi is moving upmarket and taking aim at Apple's iPhone. The Chinese maker known for low-priced phones on Thursday unveiled (发布) a new model that Chairman Jun Lei said is comparable to Apple's iPhone 6 but thinner, lighter and much cheaper. The phone starts at 2, 299 yuan ($375), less than half the 5,288 yuan ($ 865) price of an iPhone 6 in China.

    Xiaomi, founded in 2010, passed South Korea's Samsung Electronics Co. in the second quarter of last year as the best-selling smartphone brand in China by number of phones sold. The company is expanding into India and other developing markets but has yet to announce plans to enter the United States or Europe.

    Xiaomi "is a respected brand that already has an Apple-like following" in China, like HuaWei,said analyst Brian Blair, who tracks mobile device makers at Rosenblatt Securities. Apple is still a relatively small player in China, selling about 45 million iPhones there last year, Blair estimates, but will continue to grow.

    "Apple is very much a premium (高端的) brand," said Blair. "The company that's more at risk is Samsung, which has been losing share in that market."

    Privately held (私人控股的) Xiaomi said last year's sales tripled to 61. 1 million phones and revenue(收益) more than doubled to 74. 3 billion yuan ($12.2 billion). The company, based in Beijing, recently completed a round of fundraising from investors that it said valued Xiaomi at $ 45 billion, making it one of the world's most valuable technology brands.

    Xiaomi ran into legal trouble in India in December after a court blocked sales while it hears a complaint by Sweden's LM Ericcson that the Chinese company violated its patents.

    In a blog post earlier this month, Lei called the case a "rite of passage" (成年礼) for a young company.

    13. Which of the following statements is true?

    A. Xiaomi sold more cellphones than Samsung in 2010 in China.

    B. Compared to Xiaomi, Apple's iPhone 6 is thinner and lighter.

    C. Low-price is Xiaomi's advantage over Apple's iPhones.

    D. The company is expanding into the United States or Europe.

    14. What can be inferred from the passage according to Brian Blair?

    A. More than 45 million iPhones will be sold this year.

    B. Xiaomi can beat Apple in the market of China.

    C. He thinks Xiaomi is superior to Apple.

    D. Samsung will be closed for losing share in the market.

    15. What's the attitude of Jun Lei towards the case of Xiaomi in India?

    A. Negative.       B. Satisfied.        C. Positive.       D. Doubtful.

    Xinhua News---The Beijing government has set out to recruit thousands of university graduates to work as junior officials in rural areas to both improve rural administration and ease the city’s employment problems.

        The government plans to recruit 3,000 university graduates this year, 1,000 more than last year, to work as assistants to village heads or party secretaries in suburban areas.

        People interested in jobs in Beijing’s rural villages and towns can send applications to Beijing Municipal Bureau of Personnel or log on to www.bjbys.com from February 1 through March 15.

    “We hope university graduates will seize this opportunity to use their knowledge in rural villages and to start their careers,” Sun Zhenyu, the Deputy Director of Beijing Personnel Bureau, told Xinhua News Agency.

        The government has promised successful candidates a monthly salary of 2,000 yuan in the first year, 2,500 yuan the second year and 3,000 the third year, provided their performance is up to the required standards, Sun said.

        Wang Lina, who graduated from Beijing Union University last year, was one of the first graduates to find work in the city’s countryside. After majoring in Industial and Commercial Administration, Wang served as the assistant to the village head of Ertiaojie Village in suburban Beijing’s Pinggu District. For one project, Wang contacted people at Beijing Academy of Agricultural and Forestry Sciences and arranged for the local farmers to receive training in strawberry planting. Her efforts paid off. The village had a plentiful harvest of organic strawberries earlier this year.

        Nationwide, about 150,000 university graduates found employment in rural areas last year, according to the figures provided by the Ministry of Education.

    The ministry predicts that 4.95 million students will graduate from universities across the country this year, 820,000 more than last year. About 1.4 million of them are unlikely to find jobs when they graduate.

        In Beijing, a record of 200,000 people are expected to graduate from university this year. Less than half of them are expected to be offered jobs, according to Beijing Personel Bureau.

    28. From the story of Wang Lina we can learn that _________.

         A. Wang had great difficulty in helping villagers plant organic strawberries

         B. local farmers can get big harvests if they work together with her

         C. the sooner you go to the countryside, the sooner you will be successful

         D. university graduate can realize their value no matter where they work

    29. The underlined word “recruit” in the first paragraph probably means _________.

         A. force                B. employ                  C. encourage                 D. train

    30. The last two paragraphs seem to tell us that ________.

         A. it is not easy for graduates to find jobs nowadays

         B. more and more graduates will work as junior officials

         C. the universities should not enroll so many students

         D. there are more and more jobs provided by the Ministry of Education
