Volunteering teaches mature thinking. Volunteering gives us a chance to stop complaining about our lives and realize exactly how lucky we are. We are able to see the people who really need the help. Volunteering also teaches more about the quality of being responsible for others and ourselves, the character of giving understanding and showing pity to others in trouble.
Volunteering gives us a chance to our share of the work of making this society the best it possibly can be. It helps us feel good about ourselves when we can help those who rally need our help. When we can make somebody else feel special, it helps us remember what life is really about.

As dangerous as sharks may have seed to people after watching Jaws, which was released on
June 20,1975, the recent disastrous decrease in their numbers show that people have proven far
more dangerous to sharks.
This disastrous decline is due in large part to commercial fishing of sharks. “The market for
shark fins（鱼翅）in East Asia opened up thanks to changes in their economy, increasing their
ability to spend money on things such as shark fin soup,” Burgess said.
However, the biggest worry for sharks and their relatives, the skates and rays, which are suffering a similar fate, “is how they are killed incidentally when fishermen try and take other fish—the problem of bycatch（渔业混获）,” Burgess explained. “They may be thrown back afterward, but they’re still dead.”
The key of the problems behind bringing sharks back is that “they’re not the same as other fish,” Burgess said, “Sharks are slow growing and slow to reach maturity. Sharks are live bearers, which means females keep their young in their body just like us, but instead of nine months, it takes 12 to 18 months or more in sharks. Also, sharks generally can’t give birth again until a year after they’ve given birth—sometimes they’re on a three-year cycle. So once you get a shark population knocked down, this ‘life in the slow lane’ means that recovery is measured in decades rather than years.”
Burgess said, “I’m on the recovery team for it, but the recovery plan for that is over the course of 100 years. So I won’t see them recover, nor will you, nor will your children. That’s what it means when these animals go down—they’re down a long time.”
Any measures aimed at saving sharks must not only consider byeatch, “which is the real killer right now,” but also encourage interactional cooperation, Burgess said.
“Sharks are very migratory, and many species cross borders,” he said. “We can protect them only by getting many government to come aboard. That’s the hardest part about this.”

A Good Teacher is a Strict Teacher
One of the most important parts in the healthy development of a child is played by education. But the way in which education is understood has changed completely, as we must not forget that the severe and unfeeling way of bringing up a child in the past was primarily based on cruel grounding（基础）and strict rules that were supposed to create accomplished individuals, the typical gentlemen. Nowadays, society is much more open-minded and it does not put a great value on being strict, although this doesn’t mean that opinions regarding this subject do not differ.
On the one hand, there are also people who believe that there has got to be a bound between teacher and student if any satisfying results are awaited. Luckily for us, more and more teachers are understanding this fact and are doing their best to get over the strict rules and get in touch with us.
My opinion is that only by having a friendly attitude and accepting other opinions, especially those of your pupils, you are truly able to do your job at high standards. However, this does not mean that a teacher shouldn’t be a bit more rough when he feels that things are getting out of hand.
All in all, I must say that a good teacher is the teacher that has the ability to be kind and strict at the same time, thus achieving to gain his students respect and interest.

A．create perfect persons B．create open-minded persons
C．bring up a child D．build a cruel grounding

3．The underlined word “job” in the last paragraph can be replaced by .
A．controlling B．teaching C．learning D．punishing
4．The author thinks a good teacher should be .
A．kind and strict B．skilled and clever

5．It can be inferred from the passage that .
A．society is much more open-minded and being strict is out date
B．as long as the teachers are strict with students, the students will certainly get good marks
C．most people are in favor of strict teachers because they have strict grounding and strict rules
D．if we expect students to develop in a healthy way, the good relationship between teachers and students is important
Dolphins and sharks are showing up in surprisingly shallow water just off the Florida coast. Mullets, crabs, rays and small fish gather by the thousands off an Alabama pirer. Birds covered in oil are crawling deep into marshes （沼泽）, never to be seen again.
Marine scientists studying the effects of the BP disaster（英国石油公司漏油事件）are seeing
some strange phenomena. Fish and other wildlife seem to be fleeing the oil out in the Gulf and clustering in cleaner waters along the coast in a trend that some researchers see as a potentially troubling sign. The animals' presence close to shore means their usual habitat is badly polluted, and the crowding could result in mass die-offs as fish run out of oxygen. Also, the animals could easily be captured by their enemies.
The nearly two-month-old spill（漏油）has created an environmental disaster in US history as tens of millions of gallons have flown into the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem. Scientists are seeing some unusual things as they try to understand the effects on thousands of species of marine life.
For nearly four hours Monday, a three-person crew with Greenpeace cruised past delicate
islands and mangrove-dotted inlets in Barataria Bay off southern Louisiana. They saw dolphins by the dozen frolicking（嬉戏）in the oily sheen（光泽）and oil-tinged pelicans feeding their young. But they spotted no dead animals.
"I think part of the reason why we're not seeing more yet is that the impacts of this crisis are
really just beginning," Greenpeace marine biologist John Hocevar said.
The counting of dead wildlife in the Gulf is more than an academic exercise; the deaths will
help determine how much BP pays in damages.

3．The environmental disaster was caused by .

B．the lack of environmental sense of BP

D．the crowding marine life
4．What is John Hocevar’s attitude towards the disaster?
A．Worried. B．Disappointed. C．Depressed. D．Hesitant.
