    The US Department of Labour statistics show that there is an oversupply of college-trained workers. And this oversupply is ___50_____ . Already there have been more than enough teachers; engineers, physicists, aerospace experts and other specialists. Yet, colleges and graduate schools continue every year to ____51____ highly trained people to compete for jobs that aren’t there. The result is that graduates cannot enter the ___52_____ for which they were trained, and they must take temporary jobs which do not require a college degree and these temporary jobs are most probably becoming ___53______ ones in the severe labor markets.

    ____54_____ , there is a great need for skilled workers of all sorts : carpenters, electricians, mechanics, plumbers, TV repairmen. These people have more work than they can handle. As a result , their ____55____ are often higher than those of college graduates. The old concept that white-collar workers make a better living than blue-collar workers no longer holds true. The law of supply and demand now is ___56_____ the skilled workmen.

A large part of American society matches success in life ____58_____ with a college degree. Parents begin brainwashing their children with this myth before they are out of grade school . High school teachers play their part by acting as if high school education were a preparation for ___59______ rather than for life. Whether they want to go to college or not doesn’t matter: everybody should go to college , so of course they must go . Under this pressure, the kids have to go to college, but, unfortunately, most kids ___60______ in the starting line. In spite of this, every year college enrollments go up and up, and more and more graduates are ___61______ for the kinds of jobs available to them.

    One result of this emphasis on a college education is that many people go to college where they do not __62___ . Half of the sixty percent of high school graduates who enter college do not graduate with their class. Many of them drop out within the first year because of their __63____ academic performance. Some ___64_____ for two or three and then join the other students who drop out. It’s high time we stopped to rethink our education system.

    50. A. declining

    C. dropping

    D. decreasing

    51. A. turn out

    B. take over

    Several factors make a good newspaper story. First, obviously, it must be new. But since TV can react to events so quickly, this is often a problem for___45___. They usually respond to it in one of three ways.

    By providing ___46___detail, comment or background information.

    By finding a new _47___on the day's major stories.

    By printing completely different stories which TV doesn't broadcast.

        What else? Well -- it also has to be___48___. People don't want to read about ordinary, everyday life. Because of this, many stories___49___some kind of conflict or danger. This is one reason why so much news seems to be___50___news. "Plane lands safely -- no-one hurt" doesn't sell newspapers. "Plane__51___--200 feared dead!" does.

         Next, there's human interest. People are interested in other___52___-- particularly in the rich, famous and powerful. Stories about the private lives of pop singers, actors, models, politicians, ___53_, all appear regularly in certain newspapers.

         Finally, for many editors, ___54___is an important factor, too. They prefer stories about people, places and events which their readers know. That's why the stories in Tokyo's newspapers are often very different from the stories printed in Paris, Cairo, New York.

    45. A. newspapers    B. magazines   C. reporters      D. broadcasters

    46. A. extra           B. available       C. inaccessible    D. ridiculous

    A recent experiment held in Japan shows that it is almost impossible for people to walk exactly straight for 60 meters. Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology found 20 healthy men and 36 them to walk as straight as possible to a target 60 meters away at normal speed. Each man had to walk on white paper fixed flat to the floor wearing wet colored socks. The footprints revealed that all walked in a winding   37   straight line. Researchers found that people  38 the direction of walking every few seconds. The amount of the winding differed from subject to subject. This suggests that  39  of us can walk in a strictly straight line. We walk in a winding way mainly because of a slight structural or functional imbalance of our limbs. 40   we may start walking in a straight line, several steps afterwards we will have changed the direction.

    We often talk about ourselves as if we have permanent genetic defects (缺陷) that can never be changed. “I’m   36  .” “I’m always behind.” “I always put things off !” You’ve surely heard them. Maybe you’ve used them to describe   37  .

    These comments may come from stories about us that have been   38   for years—often from   39   childhood. These stories may have no basis in fact. But they can set low expectations for us. As a child, my mother said to me, “Marshall, you have no mechanical (操作机械的) skills, and you will  40   have any mechanical skills for the rest of your life.” How did these expectations   41   my development? I was never   42   to work on cars or be around    43  . When I was 18, I took the US Army’s Mechanical Aptitude Test. My scores were in the bottom for the entire nation!

    Six years later,   44  , I was at California University, working on my doctor’s degree. One of my professors, Dr. Bob Tannbaum, asked me to write down things I did well and things I couldn’t do. On the positive side, I   45    down, “research, writing, analysis, and speaking.” On the   46   side, I wrote, “I have no mechanical skills.”

    Bob asked me how I knew I had no mechanical skills. I explained my life   47   and told him about my   48   performance on the Army test. Bob then asked, “  49   is it that you can solve    50   mathematical problems, but you can’t solve simple mechanical problems?”

    Suddenly I realized that I didn’t   51   from some sort of genetic defect. I was just living out expectations that I had chosen to   52  . At that point, it wasn’t just my family and friends who had been   53   my belief that I was mechanically hopeless. And it wasn’t just the Army test, either. I was the one who kept telling myself, “You can’t do this!” I realized that as long as I kept saying that, it was going to remain true.   54   , if we don’t treat ourselves as if we have incurable genetic defects, we can do well in almost   55   we choose.

     (江苏省南京十三中2009届高三第三次模拟考试)

    In 1982, Steven Callahan was crossing the Atlantic alone in his sailboat when it struck something and sank. He got into a life boat, but his supplies were   36  . His chances of surviving were small.   37   when three fishermen found him 76 days later, he was alive—much   38   than he was when he started, but alive.

    His   39   of how he survived is fascinating. His cleverness — how he   40   to catch fish, how he evaporated(蒸发)sea water to   41   fresh water — is very interesting.

    But the thing that   42   my eye was how he managed to keep himself going when all hope seemed lost, and there seemed no   43   in continuing the struggle. He was starved and   44  worn-out. Giving up would have seemed the only possible choice.

    When people   45   these kinds of circumstances, they do something with their minds that gives them the courage to keep going. Many people in   46   desperate circumstances   47   in or go mad. Something the survivors do with their thoughts helps them find the courage to carry on   48   difficulties.

    “I tell myself I can   49   it,” wrote Callahan in his book. “Compared to what others have been through, I’m fortunate. I tell myself these things over and over,   50   up courage…”

    I wrote that down after I read it. It   51   me as something important. And I’ve told myself the same thing when my own goals seemed   52   off or when my problems seemed too terrible. And every time I’ve said it, I have always come back to my   53  .

    The truth is, our circumstances are only bad   54   to something better. But others have been through the much worse, that is, in comparison with what others have been through, you’re fortunate. Tell this to yourself over and over again, and it will help you   55   through the rough situations with a little more courage.

    Imagine a mass of floating waste is two times the size of the state of Texas. Texas has a land area of more than 678,000 square kilometers. So it might be difficult to imagine anything twice as big.

    All together, this mass of waste flowing in the North Pacific Ocean is known as the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch ( 太平洋上的垃圾带). It weighs about 3,500,000 tons. The waste includes bags, bottles and containers—plastic products of all kinds.

    The eastern part of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is about 1,600 kilometers west of California. The western part is west of the Hawaiian Islands and east of Japan. The area has been described as a kind of oceanic desert, with light winds and slow moving water currents. The water moves so slow that garbage from all over the world collects there.

    In recent years, there have been growing concerns about the floating garbage and its effect on sea creatures and human health. Scientists say thousands of animals get trapped in the floating waste, resulting in death or injury. Even more die from a lack of food or water after swallowing pieces of plastic. The trash can also make animals feel full, lessening their desire to eat or drink.

    The floating garbage also can have harmful effects on people. There is an increased threat of infection of disease from polluted waste, and from eating fish that swallowed waste. Divers can also get trapped in the plastic.

    Its existence first gained public attention in 1997. That was when racing boat captain and oceanographer Charles Moore and his crew sailed into the garbage while returning from a racing event. Five years earlier,  another oceanographer learned of the rubbish after a shipment of rubber ducks got lost at sea. Many of those toys are now part of the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch.

    In August, 2009, a team from the University of California, San Diego became the latest group to travel to it. They were shocked by the amount of waste they saw. They gathered hundreds of sea creatures and water samples to measure the garbage patch’s effect on ocean environment.

    How did the writer put forward the topic of the text?

    A. By giving an example.                    B. By listing the facts.

    C. By telling a story.                           D. By giving a comparison.

    What do we know about the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch?

    A. It is made up of various kinds of plastic products.

       B. It is a solid mass of floating waste materials.

    C. It lies 1,600 kilometers east of California.

       D. It caused animals and humans to get lost.

    In which column of a newspaper can you most probably find the text?

    A. Sports and entertainment.               B. Media and culture.

    C. Environment and society.                D. Science and technology.
