My ears are recently full of joyous remarks from my friends such as, “Oh, Beckham is so handsome, so cool, that I can’t help falling in love with him!” or “What perfect skills he has!” Yeah, I agree _____ some degree, though I sometimes do want to ask them how much they _____ Beckham, apart from his appearance and how much they know about football_____ scoring goals. It seems funny that we are crazy for things, with which we are unfamiliar or _____ we are uncertain, but we all, my friends _____ I, consider this _____ .
We need these pleasures to brighten up our lives. But that doesn’t amount to craziness _____ nonsense. As an old saying _____ :“Don’t judge a book by its cover.” We should not _____ anything from its appearance. We should all know, it is one’s good character and great contribution that _____ one a star and unforgettable. Therefore we’d better say _____ about Beckham’s good looks.
If we close our eyes, _____ in deep thought, we can find that the things _____ us to be in truth happy, sad or moved _____ a clear meaning. If we don’t go deeper and just satisfied with superficial things, _____ we will find that we have not really gained anything _____ our first impression has blinded and misled us, and we’ll remain ignorant _____ we realize that and make some changes.
It is believed that thinking and going deeper than before is sign of great _____ .If one day we are willing to go deeper into everything, no matter how much it _____ us, we will finally prove how much we have grown up, how much more sensible, mature, and intelligent we have _____ .

Check out any woman's wardrobe and you will be sure to find at least one pair of high heel shoes there. After all, which woman can 36 wearing something that makes her look taller and her legs 37 longer? Unfortunately, those high heel shoes women love so much 38 their name, and can end up doing more damage than you can imagine 39 the spine(脊柱) and lower back—if care is not taken.
Murlowska, a therapist(治疗师 ), is 40 with the consequences of wearing high heels. A majority of 41 who arrive at Murlowska's office come to her with back and lower back problems. Very often the 42 are the result of not walking properly in high heels or choosing the 43 kind of footwear.
"I know women love wearing high heels but they can 44 extreme damage to the body," Murlowska says, "I recently had a patient who had a terrible fall while walking in high heels and twisted her 45 . She did not think much of it at the time, but the next morning she 46 up to find her knee swollen and painful."
If a woman walks in heels 47 than five centimeters, several pressure points develop in various parts of the body which experience 48 . Essentially, a woman wearing high heels is attempting to 49 her entire body on a very small area. This causes extreme stress on the muscles of the legs 50 increasing the chances of the ankle getting twisted. This can 51 damage to the knee ligaments(韧带) and tendons(腱). High heels force the 52 into an unnatural down-turned position. Consequently, the rest of the body has to 53 itself in order to stay balanced. The lower part of the spine as well as the hip bone tilts(倾斜) forward while the 54 spine and the neck tilts back in order to maintain balance."
Over a period of time, the hip bone also gets 55 because of the change in the center of gravity as a result of wearing high heels.

Since Alzheimer’s disease (阿尔茨海默病)and Parkinson’s disease (帕金森病) are common and many notable people have developed them, they have received more public attention.
Many people imagine that Alzheimer’s disease, the degenerative (退化的) disorder that eventually leaves sufferers with total memory loss, is an inevitable result of aging. This is not so. While the risks of contracting the disease increase with age, there are many elderly people whose memories are perfect. Most of us are so ill-__51__ about all forms of memory loss that we label everything as “Alzheimer’s ”. Alzheimer’s disease itself can affect people as young as 30 and can progress either quickly or slowly. It can also __52__ the blame for other non-degenerative conditions such as deep depression. __53__, only an examination of the brain tissue during an autopsy (解剖) can produce an accurate __54__ of the disease.
The causes of Alzheimer’s are unknown. They may be either __55__ or environmental. A study in 1996 of 13,000 people whose parents or siblings had the disease showed they had five times __56__ chance of passing away by the age of 80 than those with no family history of the problem.
__57__, there are other factors. In a study of identical twins, it was found that only about half of the twin pairs developed Alzheimer’s and, when both twins __58__ it, they did so as much as 15 years apart. The possibility that environment plays a part was boosted by another 1996 study, this time of two groups of elderly Japanese men. One group lived in Hawaii, the other group in Japan. The Hawaiian group had a much higher incidence of the disease.
Aluminum (铝) has been blamed for the development of Alzheimer’s. This is because a high level aluminum has been found in the brains of sufferers. The disease was first diagnosed at the beginning of the 20th century. It was at this time that aluminum was becoming widely __59__ for use in cooking pots.
Memory loss, __60__ in performing familiar tasks, and problems with abstract thinking are all indicators of the beginning of the disease. One unusual feature is its impact on language. It attacks nouns first, then verbs. Grammar is one of the last things to go.
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive disorder of the central nervous system which __61__ more than one million Americans. Individuals with PD lack the substance dopamine (多巴胺), which is __62__ for the central nervous system’s control of muscle activity. Parkinson’s Disease is often characterized by shake, inflexibility in limbs and joints, speech disability and difficulty in __63__ physical movement. Late in the course of the disease, some patients develop dementia (痴呆症) and eventually Alzheimer’s disease. __64__, some Alzheimer patients develop symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Medications such as levodopa (左多巴), which changes itself into dopamine once inside the brain, which prevents degeneration of dopamine-containing neurons (神经细胞), are used to improve diminished or __65__ motor symptoms in PD patients, but do not correct the mental changes that occur.

My name’s James and I’m an 18-year “Cancer Survivor”. When I was 15 years of age, I was at my house one day with my 41 and when I tried to run up the steps, I blacked out, and 42 the stairs very hard. When I 43 myself, I remembered my sisters saying “Are you alright? and I replied “I think so, yeah.” But little did my sisters and I 44 that was the beginning of a(n) 45 . When I began to try to climb the stairs, my whole right leg hurt seriously. I couldn’t move it 46 the assistance of my hands. The pain was horrible. I finally 47 my way upstairs and I hardly 48 I couldn’t move my leg. As time went on, it got 49 , so a month later I 50 went to hospital. I was asked to go to the rooms51 they treated me to the X-rays. One week later, I got my 52 , but wasn’t clear on what was happening. They 53 us back home. Three days later, they 54 an expert from another continent or someplace and he looked at my rays one time and said “OH MY GOD, this young man has bone cancer.”
Once all of that got cleared up, they 55 my chemotherapy(化疗) treatments. I was told that I couldn’t 56 like a normal person any more, so 57 was impossible. Basically my 58 was over before it even got started.
I want to share this story with you guys because today I’m 84 kg with 2% body fat. I don’t smoke or drink. I can walk and even run. I’m so 59 to be here and forever to grace life with my presence each day. My dream is to become the “ 60 ” to everybody who ever thought about giving up on life because it’s so hard, or just simply not worth living.

When l was diagnosed with breast cancer afew years back,I reacted like most who re-
ceive a cancer diagnosis, the first thing that came to mind was a"death sentence". 41 ,

that I still have my life, so why axnI to 48 ?
One day,I had an unusual experience.I tumed that experience into a 49 aIld I
called it "Peace". Writing had become therapy(冶疗)for me.I took that poem, along with
many others I had 50 during my breast cancer period and placed them in book form.1
was 51 enough to have that book published.I later had another inspirational children's
book 52 ,with a third one 53 ．I'm hoping that anyone who has the chance to read
my first book of poems will benefit from it. My poems are from the heart, and l wish to have
a positive 54 on someone who's ill,1 55 believe when you survive a sernous 56
like cancer, it's for a reason, and l want to Live to 57 exactly what that is for me.
That's what I'mallabout now? inspiration.1 would have 58 become awriter, pro-
ducing inspirational poems and stories, if I had not gone through all that I did.I'm atrue

My heart story started when I was 13 years old. My father died of a heart attack while on a golf course at the young age of 45. Heart disease 41 in my family. Like my father, I have extremely high lipid（脂质）levels and the good news is that today there are some 42 that can significantly reduce my lipid levels to 43 normal ranges.
In 2011, when I was 45 and my own son was 13, history 44 itself. While skating with my son, I began to 45 an “uncomfortable feeling”. I didn’t think it was heart-related. When we 46 my wife gave me aspirin and we decided to go and see my 47 the next day because my symptoms had 48 decreased. My doctor sent us straight 49 the hospital where I had my heart examined. Tests 50 that I had trouble with my heart. After nine days at the hospital and a surgery, I went home on my 46th birthday with a 51 life.
52 there was no evidence of any heart damage at all. My doctor told me that I must have been doing 53 pretty good before my heart attack because patients didn’t usually 54 the kind of blockage（堵塞物）I had, or they met 55 damage to the heart. I told them that I had been 56 walking for seven years before my heart attack, walking up to 20 miles a week. Several people in the medical profession told me that walking 57 my life!
This October, I will be walking at the Heart and Stroke Walk in Tacoma. Every step is a 58 that life is fragile and can be taken from us at any moment. My 59 to you is very simple: 60 you have heart disease in your family, there is something you can do about it.

Have you ever gotten a sunburn? If you have, you’ve already learned the hard way about the sun’s ultraviolet (紫外线的), or UV light. It can burn your skin so bad that it turns it red or even makes it peel off. The 51 helps you remember to wear sunscreen the next time.
Well, Earth has its own version of sunscreen, the ozone (臭氧) layer, which 52 us all from the vast majority of the UV light released by the sun. Without it, we wouldn’t just get a sunburn. Life on Earth would go 53 due to the hugely damaging power of all those UV rays.
The ozone layer 54 Earth’s stratosphere (同温层), a part of the atmosphere that 55 from about 10 kilometers up to nearly 50 kilometers above the ground. Despite its name, the ozone layer isn’t just ozone gas. It contains relatively higher concentrations of ozone than the lower atmosphere, but that’s still a small amount 56 those of the main elements of the atmosphere. Even so, it 57 a lot of UV rays, preventing them from reaching the surface of Earth.
However, people weren’t fully aware of its importance until 1985, when a huge hole in the layer was found over Antarctica.
The 58 quickly pointed to a kind of chemical called chlorofluorocarbon, or CFC, which was widely used in refrigerators, air conditioners and hairsprays. CFCs are able to rise up to the stratosphere and cause reactions that destroy ozone. With a 59 ozone layer, people on Earth are more likely to develop skin cancer, cataracts (白内障) and other health problems due to too much UV light 60 .
As a result of this discovery, an international treaty (条约) called the Montreal Protocol was signed in 1987 to 61 the manufacture of CFC products so that the ozone layer could slowly recover and return to its natural state by 2050.
62 , at a time when it seemed that everything was going back to 63 , earlier this month scientists detected four new man-made gases in Greenland and Australia that could causes new risks to the ozone layer.
Scientists haven’t identified the 64 of the gases, but “this highlights that ozone loss is not yet yesterday’s story,” said Professor Piers Forster from the University of Leeds, UK, to BBC. Scientists believe that there are more such gases out there, and they still have much work to do to “ 65 the holes”.

An old man wanted to retire because of his poor health．The 1 was in deciding which son would take his place．As his children gathered to 2 his birthday, the father announced his 3 ．The old man took out two boxes and said to his two sons．“Each of you take one．I want each of you to 4 it with what you believe to be the most 5 thing for our successful business． 6 your choices, I will decide who will take 7 the business,” father said．The next days the families and employees could sense the spirit of 8 between the boys.
It was January 1st and the family 9 to celebrate again．“Please 10 with me what’s in your box!” father said．The first son said, “It’s outside on the back of truck．The box you gave me was much too 11 .” Father walked to the window and from that distance could see all．With a deep tone of 12 , he asked the other son，“What do you have to give?”The son 13 his father the box．The old man looked inside and with great 14 looked up at his son .“It’s 15 !” father said .“Are you telling me that you have found nothing of value in our business?”
“On the contrary,” he said．“I could not place 16 I found most valuable in a box．How does one measure the value of quality and honesty? What size box would 17 the loyalty（忠诚） of our employees and customers? How big of a room would I need for our workers who have 18 from our generous pay and health plan? Finally, father, the most valuable possessions（财富） I 19 hold are the love of you and mother.”
It was 20 what decision was made that day．There will come a time when each of us will be asked by our father to share what we value most．I hope your box is empty.

This is no 10 ；I don’t even think it is sad in the 11 way to be honest．I’ve been so 12 in my life．I’ve lived in Paris，served the Peace Corps in Peru，fallen madly in love with the most 13 girl，have the most fantastic 14 and friends anyone could ever ask for…and the 15 just goes on．
I 16 believe everything happens for a reason．If terminal cancer had not 17 to me，I would not have been able to 18 my closest friends and family to appreciate the beautiful gift of life a little more and live more appreciative and 19 lives with my story．This is the purpose of my life I had been 20 all of my life．In fact，that is the reason I’ve decided to write this article and go public with my story as well．It is also the reason why I am，after all that I’ve been through in the past few months，thankful for terminal cancer．

I lost my elderly mother a few weeks ago．Actually，my mother had fallen over during the night and had not been able to 1 again．She had woken up the neighbors by banging on the wall．The 2 called an ambulance，which took her 3 to the hospital.
My mother has 4 thought that hospitals are a real horror．She believes that doctors and hospitals give you 5 diseases．My father went to hospital a year ago，and after a few weeks，he 6 ．The fact that he was also in the final 7 of lung cancer was certainly related，but by my mother's logic，my father's death was 8 with the hospital.
When a neighbor 9 me up and told me that my mother had been taken off in an ambulance，the first thing I did was similar，which was to ring Queen Elizabeth Hospital．The paramedics(护理人员) had told my neighbor that my mother would 10 be taken there， 11 I was told that no one by that name had been 12 ，so they gave me the numbers of two other West Midland hospitals．Both of them also 13 that they were holding my mother．I rang the 14 and asked them to find her，but the nice officer said he could only do that if she had been reported as a(n) 15 person.
It took six calls to 16 my mother．She had been in Queen Elizabeth Hospital all along，but because their computer system hadn't been updated overnight，there was no record of her 17 ．My mother had spent more than a 18 in the hospital when it turned out there was nothing 19 with her．I managed to get her out within 10 days，but only by agreeing that in the future，she would live downstairs．In return，the hospital said they would 20 for a social worker to visit the house three or four rimes a day.
Luckily，my mother is safe．Thank all the people who have given their help to us.
