    A crow lived in a thick forest filled with many birds. The crow was very content with his carefree life until he saw a swan one day. The swan was flying over a lake. “This swan is so white,” he thought, “and I am so black. It must be the happiest bird in the world.”

    He shared his thoughts with the swan. “Actually,” the swan replied, “I thought so too until I met a parrot. It had brilliant colors of red and blue. No other bird could be happier than the parrot.”

    The crow went in search for the parrot, and found it rested on the top of an old rain tree. The parrot explained, “ I too was very happy until I chanced upon a peacock . My colors paled in comparison to the peacock’s. Its rich colors put my coat to shame.”

    Curiosity defeated the crow, who was determined to look for the beautiful peacock. He finally found the peacock at the zoo. Hundreds of people gathered round to watch the peacock and its beautiful wings. After the crowd left, the crow rested itself onto a rock and said, “Dear peacock,” the crow said, “ You are so beautiful. Every day, people come just to see you. People either drive me away or avoid me when they see me. You must be the happiest bird on the planet.”

    The peacock replied, “My beauty had me kept in this zoo. In the years I spent here, I often thought to myself that if I were a crow, I could be enjoying a carefree life outside. Then after many months of internal struggles, I come to realize that I need to learn to be happy in what I have instead of expecting what I do not have. I am happy because I’m satisfied with my life here.”

      When we were growing up in our grandparents’ home, Jack, my grandfather, was always in his room sitting in the chair and listening to the radio. The voices speaking from the metal box day and night, taught us that there was a larger world outside. He would roll the black dial (刻度盘) back and forth until the signal was clear. Then he would listen.

    Now he is old and falls ill. When I went to visit him, he said to me, “I dislike the Internet. The problem is that we’re losing primary contact with each other. No more shaking hands. Everyone is so busy. We want too much and in the process of getting it we miss so much.” He stopped for a while. “It makes me lonely and sad.” Then he looked at me, “I just want to hear your voices.”

    I think of all the voices on the radio he has spent a lifetime listening to. I asked, “How did you become interested in the radio?” “I don’t know,” he said. “It was another way to reach people. I was always interested in searching for a better signal, a clearer, more powerful signal that could communicate with someone somewhere.”

    “And I’ll tell you another funny thing: you can electronically eliminate all kinds of noise from the signal, but you can’t remove natural noise caused by thunder and lightning, rainstorms, or snowstorms.”

    He closed his eyes and smiled. “I was just thinking that in spite of all our technologies, maybe we haven’t progressed that far as human beings. We shouldn’t forget we still have the same basic needs.”

    51.What did Jack use to do in his room? (No more than 15 words)

    __________________________________________________________________

     Have you ever picked a job based on the fact that you were good at it but later found it made you feel very uncomfortable over time? When you select your career, there’s a lot more to it than assessing your skills and matching them with a particular position. If you ignore your personality, it will hurt you long term regardless of your skills or the job’s pay. There are several areas of your personality that you need to consider to help you find a good job. Here are a few of those main areas:

      1) Do you prefer working alone or with other people?

      There are isolating(令人孤立的)jobs that will drive an outgoing person crazy and also interactive jobs that will make a shy person uneasy. Most people are not extremes in either direction but do have a tendency that they prefer. There are also positions that are sometimes a combination of the two, which may be best for someone in the middle who adapts easily to either situation.

      2) How do you handle change?

      Most jobs these days have some elements of change to them, but some are more than others. If you need stability in your life, you may need a job where the changes don’t happen so often. Other people would be bored of the same daily routine.

      3) Do you enjoy working with computers

      I do see this as a kind of personality characteristic. There are people who are happy to spend more than 40 hours a week on a computer, while there are others who need a lot of human interaction throughout the day. Again these are extremes and you’ll likely find a lot of positions somewhere in the middle as well.

      4)What type of work environment do you enjoy

      This can range from being in a large building with a lot of people you won’t know immediately to a smaller setting where you’ll get to know almost all the people there fairly quickly.

      5) How do you like to get paid?

      Some people are motivated by the pay they get, while others feel too stressed to be like that. The variety of payment designs in the sales industry is a typical example for this.

      Anyway, these are great starting points for you. I’ve seen it over and over again with people that they make more money over time when they do something they love. It may take you a little longer, but making a move to do what you have a passion for can change the course of your life for the better.

    56. What is the best title for this passage? (no more than 5 words)

    _________________________________________________________________________

    57. What is the meaning of the underlined word “uneasy” in Paragraph 2? (1 words)

    _________________________________________________________________________

    58. If you need stability in your life, what kind of job will you require? (no more than 10 words)

    _________________________________________________________________________

    59. According to the writer, what can make people make more money? (no more than 7 words)

    _________________________________________________________________________

    60. Which area do you think is a must during a job-hunting? Why? (no more than 20 words)

    ____________________________________________________________________________

    A Father’s Influence Makes for Better Grades

    Adolescents from low-income families in particular are more likely than their middle-class peers to underachieve and to drop out of school. Studies have shown that a positive attitude towards school work and the support and encouragement from their parents can help at-risk youngsters to overcome the economic barriers and lack of resources they face. Most of the evidence about the effects of parental involvement comes from research on mothers. Little is known, however, about how adolescents experience their fathers’ warmth and the beliefs and behaviors that are most affected by it.

    This new study is part of a larger one focusing on low-income families conducted in four middle schools in the southwestern United States. Data were analyzed from questionnaires completed by 183 sixth-graders about how optimistic and motivated they were about their schoolwork, and how they experienced their fathers. The questionnaires were completed primarily by respondents of Mexican American, African American and European American descent. Their maths and language arts grades were also obtained.

    Their findings show how fathers can support their teenagers in ways that result in greater optimism, self-efficacy, and, ultimately, higher achievement at school.

    These positive effects extend to both sons and daughters, while in different ways. Experiencing their father’s warmth first influences daughters’ sense of optimism, and then spills over into their feeling more determined and certain about their academic abilities. This in turn leads to better math grades. There is a more direct link between their fathers’ involvement and teenage boys’ belief in their ability to succeed on the academic front. This heightened self-confidence increased their success in English language arts classes.

    Suizzo suggests that counselors and educators should encourage fathers to communicate warmth and acceptance to their children, because of the positive influence these emotions have on their well-being.

    Some futurologists have assumed that the vast increase of women in the workforce may signal a rejection of marriage. Many women, according to this hypothesis (假设), would rather work than marry. The opposite of this concern is that the outlook of becoming a multi-paycheck household could encourage marriage. In the past, only the earnings and financial prospects of the man counted in the marriage decision. Now, however, the earning ability of a woman can make her more attractive as a marriage partner. Data show that economic downturns tend to put off marriage because the parties cannot afford to establish a family or are concerned about rainy days ahead. As the economy comes to life, the number of marriages also rises.

    The increase in divorce rates follows to the increase in women working outside the home. Yet, it may be wrong to jump to any simple cause-and-effect conclusion. The effect of a wife’s work on divorce is no less cloudy than its effect on marriage decisions. The realization that she can be a good provider may increase the chances that a working wife will choose divorce over an unsatisfactory marriage. But the reverse is equally plausible (似是而非的). Tensions grounded in financial problems often play a key role in ending a marriage. By raising a family’s standard of living, a working wife may strengthen her family’s financial and emotional stability.

    Psychological factors also should be considered. For example, a wife blocked from a career outside the home may feel caged in the house. She may view her only choice as seeking a divorce. On the other hand, if she can find fulfillment through work outside the home, work and marriage can go together to create a stronger and more stable union.

    Also, a major part of women’s inequality in marriage has been due to the fact that, in most cases, men have remained the main breadwinners. A working wife may rob a husband of being the master of the house. Depending upon how the couple reacts to these new conditions, it could create a stronger equal partnership or it could create new insecurities.

    (Note: Answer the question or complete the statement in NO MORE THAN TEN WORDS.)

    78. According to the first paragraph, what do fewer people get married for when the economy declines?

    79. A wife may strengthen her family’s stability by working to _______________.

    80. Psychologically speaking, whether _______________ will have a strong effect on the marriage.

    81. What problem may a multi-paycheck household have?

    When you visit London, one of the first things you will see is Big Ben, the famous clock which can be heard all over the world on the BBC. If the Houses of Parliament (议会大厦) had not been burned down in 1834, the great clock would never have been erected. Big Ben takes its name from Sir Benjamin Hall who was responsible for the making of the clock when the new Houses of Parliament were being built. It is not only of immense size, but is extremely accurate as well. Officials from Greenwich Observatory (格林威治天文台) have the clock checked twice a day. On the BBC you can hear the clock when it is actually striking because microphones are connected to the clock tower. Big Ben has rarely gone wrong. Once, however, it failed to give the correct time. A painter who had been working on the tower hung a pot of paint on one of the hands and slowed it down!

    Answer these questions in no more than 75 words.

    1. When were the Houses of Parliament burnt down? Who was made responsible for the construction of a huge clock? Did it become known as Big Ben or not? (After ... which ...)

    2. Why is it very accurate despite its immense size? (for)

    3. Has this clock often gone wrong, or has it rarely gone wrong? Why can it be heard on the BBC when it is striking? (This clock, which ... because ...)

    Art museums are places where people can learn about various cultures. The increasingly popular “design museums” that are opening today, however, are quite different. Unlike most art museums, the design museum shows objects that are easily found by the general public. These museums sometimes even place things like fridges and washing machines in the center of the hall. 

    People have argued that design museums are often made use of as advertisements for new industrial technology. But their role is not simply a matter of sales — it is the honoring of excellently invented products. The difference between the window of a department store and the showcase in a design museum is that the first tries to sell you something, while the second tells you the success of a sale. 

    One advantage of design museums is that they are places where people feel familiar with the exhibits. Unlike the average art museum visitors, design museum visitors seldom feel frightened or puzzled. This is partly because design museums clearly show how and why mass-produced products work and look as they do, and how design has improved the quality of our lives. Art museum exhibits, on the other hand, would most probably fill visitors with a feeling that there is something beyond their understanding. 

    In recent years, several new design museums have opened their doors. Each of these museums has tried to satisfy the public’s growing interest in the field with new ideas. London’s Design Museum, for example, shows a collection of mass-produced objects from Zippo lighters to electric typewriters to a group of Italian fish-tins. The choices open to design museums seem far less strict than those to art museums, and visitors may also sense the humorous part of our society while walking around such exhibits as interesting and unusually attractive toys collected in our everyday life.

    (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN ELEVEN WORDS.) 

    78. According to the passage, design museums are places where ___________________ _________________________________________.

    79. What kinds of role do design museums play?

    80. In contrast to design museums, choices open to art museums are more strict and visitors often feel _________________________________ in most of them.

    81. Some new design museums have been opened lately with the purpose of _________ ___________________________________________.

    1‘Kung Hei Fat Choi!’ That’s a phrase that has been heard many times in London’s Chinatown over the last few days. Why? Because it’s Chinese New Year, and the UK’s Chinese community are celebrating the Year of the Dragon.

        2This year the celebrations which include more than 100 events have been more spectacular (壮观的)than ever with more than 200,000 people gathering to watch a huge parade of lions, dragons, drums, and ribbon and fan dancers. The procession made its way from Chinatown to Trafalgar Square, the very heart of London. Meanwhile, London’s museums, art galleries and theatres are running special China-themed seasons.

        3London has a proud history of multiculturalism, and the Chinese community is one of the oldest in the city. Chinese immigrants first came to London in the mid 19th Century, _____________________seamen involved in the tea trade via Canton. For that reason Cantonese is still spoken more widely in the UK than Mandarin.

        4A more recent wave of immigration took place in the 1960s when many workers came from Hong Kong to find work in the flourishing restaurant business. One part of the central London neighborhood of Soho became synonymous with Chinese restaurants and began to be known as Chinatown.

        5Today more than 60,000 people of Chinese descent live in London which means that there are plenty of people to conduct the New Year festivities.

        6Much of this has been organized through partnerships between Chinese community groups and the Mayor of London’s office. Indeed, London’s Mayor has been an outspoken advocate of strengthening ties between the UK and China. In his Chinese New Year speech he said, “To everyone in China, think of London as your second home.”

    7So whether you are in London, Beijing or Hong Kong, have a happy Chinese New Year.

    76. What’s the best title of the passage? (Within 10 words)

                                                                                 

    77. What do people do in this year’s celebrations in London?

    (Within 20 words)

                                                                                  

                                                                                 

    78. Please fill in the blank in the 3rd paragraph with proper words or phrases to complete the sentence. (Within 10 words)

                                                                                 

    79. What do you think of London’s mayor’s attitude to Chinese New Year Festival? (Within 20 words)

                                                                                  

                                                                                 

    80. Please translate the underlined sentence in the 4th paragraph into Chinese.

    Many American fathers have got gifts from their families in honor of Father’s Day. Some men may be hoping for a shiny new grill(烤架) to bring smoky, fiery(燃烧的) happiness to cooking outdoors. More than half of Americans say they cook outdoors throughout the year. But the warmer months bring more people outside. So this is a good time for food safety expert to make their efforts to educate the public.

    Disease-control officials say that about one in six Americans get sick from food each year. 130,000 have to go to a hospital for food poisoning. And 3,000 die. Health Officials say these numbers usually increase during this time of year as more Americans cook and eat outdoors.

    The United States Department of agriculture started its Meat and Poultry Hotline in 1985. The Meat and Poultry Hotline has expanded its programs to include Spanish language services. Also, people can ask questions through email and live chats and get information on social media sites.

    The hotline receives about 70,000 telephone calls a year from people with food safety questions. They teach consumers every day, one to one, about how to handle food safely and to prevent food-related illness. In addition, they also take calls that are related to complaints about food products that have led to foods being recalled, and that has probably saved lives.

    One of the Hotline workers said, “One of the most important things is to make sure your meat is fully cooked. It’s not recommended that anybody be having a rare hamburger when they are cooking out in the summer. If you’re cooking eggs, make sure the yolks(蛋黄) are fresh. And drinking or eating things that contain uncooked eggs is surely not a good idea.”

    71. For what purpose does the author mention Father’s Day in the first paragraph? (No more than 10 words)

    ____________________________________________________________________________________

    72. What information can people get if they call the Meat and Poultry Hotline? (No more than 5 words)

    ____________________________________________________________________________________

    73. What should you do when cooking eggs? (No more than 10 words)

    ____________________________________________________________________________________

    74. What does the underlined word “handle” in the fourth paragraph mean? (No more than 5 words)

    ____________________________________________________________________________________

    75. What’s your attitude towards eating outside? Why? (No more than 20 words)

    阅读下面短文,根据其内容写一篇60词左右的内容概要。

    There are many benefits of public transportation. For example, public transportation makes it easier for people to get where they want and need to go. It also helps people save money, as the cost of maintaining a working vehicle is often much more than the cost associated with public transportation. The frequency of traffic jams and accidents may also be reduced when a person uses public transportation.

    One of the main benefits of public transportation is the fact that it makes it easier for people to get around. Without public transportation, many people especially those without cars would be limited in where they could go and what they could do. With public transportation, however, people can get to school and work, get to the grocery store and to doctors’ offices, and visit relatives, even if they do not own vehicles. Public transportation serves people of all ages and from all walks of life, ranging from families, including their children, to business people on their way to the office, to the elderly.

    Often, people complain about the cost of public transportation when the rates are raised. When compared to the cost of buying a car, many people find that choosing to ride public transportation is a much cheaper option.

    When public transportation is available, many people choose to use it instead of driving to work and school. This is true even of many people who own cars, as they may prefer to ride to work on a bus or train rather than deal with traffic jams and parking frustrations each day. When people make this choice, the result is less traffic on the roadways, which means fewer traffic jams and less pollution. In fact, the choice many people make to ride public transportation may even translate into fewer car accidents and vehicle-related deaths and injuries. Additionally, the use of public transportation also means less gas is consumed each year.

       In the United States alone , over 100 million cell-phones are thrown away each year. Cell-phone are part of a a growing mountain of electronic waste like computers and personal digital assistants. The electronic waste stream is increasing three times faster than traditional garbage as a whole.

      Electronic devices contain valuable metals such as gold and silver . A  Swiss study reported that while the weight of electronic goods represented by precious metals was relatively small in comparison to total waste , the concentration (含氟) of gold and other precious metals was higher in So-called  e-waste than in naturally occurring minerals.

     Electronic wastes also contain many poisonous metals . Even when the machines are recycled and the harmful metals removed , the recycling process often is carried out in poor countries , in practically uncontrolled ways which allow many poisonous substances to escape into the environment.

     Creating products out of  raw materials creates much more materials, up to 100 times more, than the material contained in the finished products . Consider again the cell-phone , and imagine the mines that produced those metals , the factories needed to make the box and packaging(包装) it came in . Many wastes produced in the producing process are harmful  as well.

      The U.S. Environmental Protection  Agency notes that most wast is dangerous in that “ the production , distribution , and use of products ------as well asd management of the resulting waste-----all result in greenhouse gas release.” Individuals can reduce their contribution by creating less waste at the start ---- for instance , buying reusable products and recycling

     In many countries the concept of the extended producer responsibility is being considered or has been put in place as an incentive(动机)for reducing waste. If producers are required to take back packaging they use to sell their products , would they reduce the packaging in the first place?

    Governments’ incentive to require producers to take responsibility for the packaging they produce is  usually based on money . Why , they ask , should cities or towns be responsible for paying to deal with the bubble wrap (气泡垫)that encased your television?

    From the governments’ point of view , a primary goal of laws requiring extended producer responsibility is to transfer both the costs and the physical responsibility of waste management from the government and tax-payers back to the producers.

    John D. Rockefeller was born in 1839 on a farm near Richford, New York, a small town in the western part of the state. He worked hard both in school and outside school and he also showed the skill and ability to produce new things, especially works of art.

    Rockefeller began to look for work when he finished high school at the age of sixteen. Since the age of five, he had worked at odd jobs, such as raising turkeys or working in potato fields. Now he looked for better opportunities.

    At first, Rockefeller worked in an office, where he was successful and where he learned a great deal about business. But he wanted to go into business for himself. So he and a friend formed a partner­ship to buy and sell grain, hay, and other farm products.

    The business was successful, but Rockefel­ler decided to go into the new oil industry. He formed his own company so that he could make free use of his skill and imagination in business.

    The company Rockefeller started became the Standard Oil Company. It took the oil from wells and refined it, that is, changed it into products such as kerosene (煤油) and grease (油脂).

    Rockefeller’s business grew until it was worth millions of dollars. Almost everyone who bought oil products had to buy them from the Standard Oil Company. Finally, the government and the courts ordered the Standard Oil Company to be divided up to give other oil companies a chance.

    John D. Rockefeller earned a great fortune and he gave away much money. By the time of his death, Rockefeller had created a special fund of money to be used to improve health and education and another fund to improve “the well-being of mankind throughout the world.” During his life­time, Rockefeller had gained almost one billion dollars; he gave away about half of it. But Rockefeller's personal life was fairly frugal.

    71. What kind of boys was Rockefeller when he was young? (No more than 7 words)

    72. Why did Rockefel­ler decide to go into the new oil industry? (No more than 10 words)

    73. What policy did the government and the courts give to the Standard Oil Company? (No more than 15 words)

    74. What is the meaning of the underlined part in the last Paragraph? (No more than 5 words)

    75. How does Rockefeller’s story inspire you to deal with money when you become rich? Put it in your own words. (No more than 20 words)

       I’m not an athlete, but I am a lover of the Olympics. My biggest sports moment ever didn’t 

      require me to be the fastest, the highest, or the strongest. It just required me to be in the right 

      place at the right time, and catch the opportunity when it came to me. It was to carry our 

      national flag for the Olympic Torch Relay. 

           As a part of the celebration, flag bearers(旗手)were needed. I served in the army at that 

      time and the Olympic organizers asked for volunteers to help carry some of the flags. Although it 

      demanded that I give up part of my weekends and get up early, I thought that it was the chance 

      of a lifetime. 

           There were several different groups that took part in the event as flag bearers. We 

      soldiers were going to be out in front leading them. On the day of the event, we arrived early at 

      the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Many people arrived to see the flame arrive from Greece, 

      and the beginning of the Olympic Torch Relay. It was exciting to wait for our turn to enter the 

      coliseum. 

           As a flag bearer, I was supposed to run out in front. Though the flag was fairly heavy, I 

      picked it up and ran with it. I ran past rows of people. I ran through television cameras. It was 

      one of the most amazing experiences of my life, being able to carry our national flag in an 

      international event like the Olympics. I was very proud of it. 

           I had never been able to attend the Olympics, and I might never be important enough to 

      carry an Olympic torch or anything like that, but I did get to carry our national flag in the torch 

     relay, although I will no longer have the opportunity to carry the flag in the Olympics, and that 

      would be one sports experience that would be difficult to forget.  

      76. What was the author when the Olympics were hosted in Los Angeles?  

      (no more than 6 words) 

     _________________________________________________________________________ 

      77. What was the author asked to do as a volunteer? (no more than 10 words) 

      __________________________________________________________________________ 

      78. What’s the meaning of the underlined sentence in Paragraph 2? (no more than 10 words) 

      __________________________________________________________________________ 

      79. How many times has the author carried the flag in the Olympics?  

      (no more than 2 words) 

      __________________________________________________________________________ 

      80. Do you want to be a flag bearer? Why or why not? (no more than 20 words)

    Read the following passage. Summarize the main idea and the main point(s) of the passage in no more than 60 words. Use your own words as far as possible.

                               The advantages of social networking

      Why do most people sign up to social networking sites? The main reason is to stay in touch with other people. These sites also help people to find their childhood friends that they have lost touch with. Renewing these long-lost friendships is just a click away. It is very exciting to be able to catch up with friends and keep up with their news on am almost daily basis thanks to frequent updates.

      Keep up-to-date,however,doesn’t have to be restricted to friends and acquaintances(相识的人).What many people tend to forget is that they can also use networking sites for professional reasons. It is actually a great way of finding out about upcoming job opportunities. Friends might know about job vacancies that may not be advertised elsewhere or they can even recommend their friends for certain jobs. Even people already employed can promote their business online. This is particularly important for artists, actors and musicians who can create pages devoted to their band or theatre company, and inform fans about their gigs(现场演唱会)or latest exhibitions. In addition, the sites can be used to allow the public to give instant feedback on the artists’ work and to interact with their favourite artist.

      Another great advantage of social networking sites is how easy it is to organise an event with your friends. Thanks to different settings people can organise their friends by different criteria(标准). These criteria could be how close friends they are, common interests and hobbies or where they live. This means if a certain event takes place, for example, an open-air concert or a football match, all they have to do is invite the right group of friends to attend. Some networking sites offer a range of quizzes and games, so friends living on opposite sides of the globe can invite each other to participate and compete in a variety of games without leaving their homes.

    I have a friend named John Roberts who owns a horse ranch (牧马场)in San Ysidro.  The last time I was there he shared a story with me. “It is a story about a young man who was the son of an itinerant horse trainer. When he was a seniorhe was asked to write a paper about what he wanted to be and do when he grew up.”

    That night he wrote a seven-page paper describing his goal of someday owning a horse ranch. He wrote about his dream in great detail and he even drew a diagram of a 200-acre ranch showing the location of all the buildingsthe stables and the track.  

    “The next day he handed it in to his teacher. Two days later he received his paper back. On the front page was a large red F with a note that read, ‘See me after class.’”

      “The boy went to see the teacher after class and asked, ‘Why did I receive an F’”

      “The teacher said, ‘This is an unrealistic dream for a young boy like you. You have no money. You come from an itinerant family. You have no resources. Owning a horse ranch requires a lot of money. You have to buy the land. You have to pay for the original breeding stock and later you’ll have to pay large stud fees. There‘s no way you could ever do it.’ Then the teacher added ‘If you will rewrite this paper with a more realistic goal, I will reconsider your grade.’”

      “The boy went home and asked his father what he should do. His father said, ‘Look, son you have to make up your own mind on this. However, I think it is a very important decision for you.’”

      “Finallyafter sitting with it for a week, the boy turned in the same paper, making no changes at all. He stated, ‘You can keep the F and I’ll keep my dream.‘”

      John continued, “I tell you this story because you are sitting in the middle of my 200-acre horse ranch. I still have that school paper framed over the fireplace.” He added, “If I had changed my paper at that time, maybe we would not have the chance to be here talking about the dreams .”

    81. What was the boy’s goal described in his seven-page paper? (No more than 6 words)

    82. Why did the teacher give him a F”?                    (No more than 14 words)

    83. How did John’s father respond to his son’s puzzlement?    (No more than10 words)

    84. What can we learn from the article?                    (No more than 8 words.)

    Dear Doctor,

        My husband and I got married in 1990 and for the first ten years of our marriage, I was very happy to stay home and bring up our three children. Then four years ago, our youngest child went to school and I thought I might go back to work. 

        My husband agreed and helped me to make my decision. He said he thought I could be a great success in business. After several weeks of job hunting, I found my present job—working for a small public company. At first, my husband was very proud of me and would tell his friends, “My clever little wife can run that company.”

        But as his joke was becoming true, my husband stopped talking to me about my job. I have received several promotions (升职) and pay increases, and I can earn more money than he can. I can buy my own clothes and new car.

        But things begin to change. My husband is not happy. My husband is very unkind to me in front of our friends. For the first time in our marriage, I think our marriage may come to an end. I love my husband very much, and I don’t want him to feel bad, but I also love my job. I think I can be a good wife and a working woman, but I don’t know how. Can’t you give me some advice? Will I have to choose one or the other or can I keep both my husband and my new career? 

        Please help me.
