    Recently,CCTV journalists have approachecd pedestrians with their camerasheld a    microphone to their mouth and asked a simple questiom :Are you haapy?

    The question has caught many interviewees off guardEven Mo Yan who recently won a  Nobel Prizeresponded by saying:“I dont know”.

    While the question has become a buzz phrase and the Internet plays host to heated  discussionswe askWhat exactly is happiness ?And how do you measure it?  

    In the 1776 US Declaration of IndependenceThomas Jefferson set in writing the peoples unalienable right toLifeLiberty and the pursuit of Happiness”.Last year235 years onChinas Premier Wen Jiabao told the nation:“Everything we do is aimed at letting people live more happily”At last years National Peoples Congressofficials agreed that increasing happiness would be a top target for the 12th five-year plan    www.szxlm,com

    US psychologist Ed Diener, author of HappinessUnlocking the Mysteries of Psychological Wealth describes happiness as “a combination of life satisfaction and having more positive than negative emotions”,according to US broadcasting network PBSThis may sound straight forward enoughbut it still doesnt explain what determines peoples happiness

    Many argue that happiness is elusive and that there is no single sourceIt also means different things to different peopleFor somehappiness can be as simple as having enough cash.  

    Researchers believe happiness can be separated into two typesdaily experiences of    hedonic(享乐的)well-beingand evaluative well-being, the way people think about their lives as a wholeThe former refers to the quality of livingwhereas the latter is about overall happinessincluding life gods and achievementHappiness can cross both dimensions.

    Li Juna psychologist and mental therapy practitioner at a Beijing clinicsays:“Happiness    can mean both the most basic human satisfaction or the highest level of spiritual pursuit. It’ s a simple yet profound topic .

    Chen Shangyuan21a junior English major at Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronauticssaid his idea of happiness always evolves.“At present it relates to how productive I am in a day,he said.“It might be linked to job security or leisure time after I graduate.”

    Then there is the question of measuring happinessDoes it depend on how many friends we haveor whether we own the latest smart phone? Is it even quantifiable?

    Economists are trying to measure happiness in peoples livesSince 1972Bhutans GDP    measurement has been,replaced by a Gross National Happiness indexIt is calculated according to the peoplessense of being well-governedtheir relationship with the environmenttheir satisfaction with economic development,and their sense of national belonging 

    In 2009US economist Joseph Stiglitz proposed to shift emphasis from measuring economic  production to measuring peoples well-being.But is well-being more easily measured?

    28From what Thomas Jefferson and Wen Jiabao mentioned in the passagewe know_______

    Apeoples happiness is determined by great people

    B. people’s happiness is an important target for the development of a country

    Cpeople in all countries have the right to ask the government for a happy life

    D. People both in China and America are living a happy life

    29According to the passagethe writer may most likely agree that_____

    A.CCTV journalists are concerned about peoples happiness out of sympathy

    Bthe question has led to heated discussions about who are the happiest people in China

    CBhutans new index shows that people there are the happiest in the world

    Dit is not easy for us to decide what determines peoples happiness

    30What does the underlined wordelusivein the sixth paragraph mean?

    AAvailable    BEasy to get    CHard to understandDAccessible

    31The best title of the passage is____

    AAre You Happy?        BThe Measurement of Happiness

    CGDP and Happiness        DThe Secret of Happiness

    It’s illegal for the police to attach a GPS unit to your car without your permission, as the U.S. Supreme Court settled in 2012But if the police are in hot pursuit of a bank robber or other escaping criminals that threaten public safety, a GPS tracker is acceptable. But exactly how can the police GPS track a car that is moving fast?

    The answer to that question comes from StarChasea new police technology being used by a small but growing number of law enforcement agenciesIt allows the police to fire 45-inch glue-covered GPS bullet-like projectiles(发射体)from an air gun fixed in their police carsIf the GPS tracker makes contact with the escaping robber’s car it’ll stick no matter how fast the vehicle is goingThat way, the police will have a constant read on the cars location and headingAside from simply apprehending(逮捕)criminalsit's believed this new technology could help save livesIf the police successfully fire a GPS unit at a speeding criminalthey can pull back from a high-risk chaseChases can be incredibly dangerous to all involvedincluding innocent bystanders and other driversOnce the GPS bullet connectsthere's no need for the chase any longer

    Nowpredictably,a GPS-loaded gun isnt cheap. Police departments need to pay about   $5000 per vehicle for the technology,and individual GPS bullets cost as much as $250 eachThat may sound expensivebut rememberThe alternative is often thousands of dollars in property damageand great human cost in injury and lost lifeAccording to Star Chasetheir GPS bullet system has an apprehension rate of 80without any report of inury or property damageIf youd like to learn more about the StarChase systemPopular Mechanics has just published a good article about itTheres also plenty more information available at the companys website 

    32When the GPS bullet sticks to the escaping robbers carthe police can________

    Aknow the cars condition       Bensure the robbers safety

    Cplay a fair game with the robber       Dknow the cars position and direction

    33The GPS bullets could help save lives mainly because________

    Athe bullets wont hurt people              Bthey can make the robbers car stop

    Cthe police can stop the dangerous chasing Dthey have more advantages than normal bullets

    34From the text we can learn that GPS bullets__________

    Aare useful for the police                 Bare widely used in America

    Ccan control the rising crime rate       Dcan replace the police in the future

    35In which part of a newspaper can we read the text?

    ALife  BNature    CFashion  DTechnology
