    The associates I hired in my bicycle and lawn mower shop like myself were never perfect; however, they were excellent. Working with them as they improved taught me new ways to show forgiveness, understanding, and patience.

    One day the placement officer asked me to interview a young man who was having trouble finding a job. He told me that David was a little shy, did not talk much and was afraid to go on with interviews. He requested that I give David an interview just for practice. He plainly told David that I had no positions open at the time and the interview was just for practice.

    When David came in for the interview, he hardly said a word. I told him what we did at the bicycle shop and showed him around. I told David to keep showing up because the number one thing an employer wanted in an associate was dependability.

    David was very quiet ( he was evaluated as a slow learner in school). Every ten days or so, for weeks after the interview, David walked into the bicycle shop and stood by the front door. He never said a word, just stood by the door.

    One day, shortly before Christmas, a large truck came to the shop, packed with 250 new bicycles. It had to be unloaded right away or the driver would leave.

    It was raining. Some of my workers (without physical limitations) chose not to brave the weather to get into work, so I was short-handed. It seemed everything was going wrong and on top of it, David came in the front door and just stood there. I looked at him and shouted, “Well, all right! Fill out a time card and help me unload this truck!”

    David worked for my bicycle shop for eighteen years. He came to work every day thirty minutes early. He could talk; however, he rarely chose to. He drove my truck and made deliveries. The customers would praise David, saying, “He doesn’t talk, but he really shows you how to operate a lawn mower!”

    25.The author gave David an interview to _______

    A. find a person who is reliable                            B. find a part-time worker in need

    C. give him some practice                                          D. show sympathy for him

    26.The author finally hired David because________

    A. there were no other workers in the shop then       B. he needed someone who was willing to work then

    C. David kept showing up                               D. He realized David was dependable

    27.We can infer from the last paragraph that_______

    A. some customers just play jokes on David  B. David has had his character changed through work

    C. the author prefers David to be more outgoing  D. the author feels lucky to hire David

    The future of pinnipeds (鳍足动物)looks much brighter today than it once did. At one time, about 100 years ago, it seemed certain that many pinnipeds in the world would be destroyed by human hunters. Today, it appears that most species物种) of pinnipeds are out of danger.

    Hunting was not controlled during the 18th and 19th centuries, because little was known about the lives of pinnipeds. Whales and pinnipeds were hunted for the oil from their body fat. This oil was used in lamps before electric lights were invented. Millions of seals and other pinnipeds were used to provide oil for the lamps of the world. As a result, the numbers of many pinniped species fell rapidly.

    Several things happened that helped to save pinnipeds. First, species that were hunted to near extinction (灭绝) were left alone because their numbers were too low and the cost of hunting them went up greatly. At the same time, electric lights were invented and the market for seal oil became smaller. Finally, governments around the world made laws to protect pinnipeds.

    As a result of all these things, the numbers of most pinniped species have grown in recent years. With some species, such as Northern fur seals, there may be as many animals alive today as there were before all the hunting began.

    However, oil is still a danger to pinnipeds and all sea animals. But this time it’s not because they are hunted for their oil. The oil that puts them in danger is from oil spills(泄露) in the sea. The oil covers their fur and reduces their body temperatures. Oil also sticks to the foods they eat. This modern danger to pinnipeds and their environment is one we must work to prevent.

    28. During the 18th and 19th century, _______.

      A. people had realized the importance of pinnipeds    B. pinnipeds were hunted for their meat 

    C. pinnipeds had a better life than today             D. many families were using lamps

    29. What does Paragraph 3 mainly talk about?

    A. How electric lights were invented.           

    B. When people began to protect pinnipeds.

    C. What governments around the world have done to save pinnipeds.        

    D. Why the numbers of some pinnipeds have increased.

    30. It can be inferred from the passage that________.

      A. the market for seal oil is growing 

    B. Northern fur seals aren’t in much danger now

      C. oil spills are the biggest problem for pinnipeds 

    D. stricter laws need to be made to protect pinnipeds

    31. In which part of a magazine can we most probably read this passage?

      A. Wildlife.                B. Lifestyle.                 C. Tourism.                 D. Environment.

    Dogs are known for a strong sense of smell. Their noses can be trained to identify different smells. Dogs are often used in search and rescue operations and to sniff for things like drugs and explosives. Some dogs have even been trained to sniff for cancer in people.

    Researchers have been trying to reproduce the extraordinary sense of smell that real dogs are born with. Now, officials at the Glasgow airport in Scotland are testing a new security device called an “electronic sniffer dog”. The electronic sniffer dog represents one of the latest developments in the area of smell technology.

    A Scottish company, Cascade Technologies, joined with the French security company Morpho to develop it. The device uses lasers to identify explosive materials in gases in the air. The purpose is to identify explosives that may be hidden on a person’s body.

    The machine looks similar to the metal detectors now used at airports. Passengers walk through the machine as the lasers test the surrounding air. People are not required to take off their coats, belts or shoes as part of the security process. And, unlike full-body scanners, the new device does not show images of the passengers.

    Officials at Cascade Technologies say the machine can process one person per second and produce almost immediate results. They say future development could cut security processing times at airports by screening all passengers at walking speed.

    Professor Yushan Yan, the head of Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Riverside, points out that unlike real dogs, electronic devices do not get tired or need to be walked or require food and water. Professor Yan says real dogs also have other needs. “They also need very extensive training that could be expensive. And when they work they have to have a very skilled handler around them.”

    But Professor Yan says there is an important area where man’s best friend still wins compared to technology. “In terms of sensitivity and selectivity, the current technology out there is still inferior. The real dog has amazing capability of identifying some really minor amount of explosives.”

    32. The electronic sniffer dogs will be used to____

    A. replace real dogs to be as pets for people    

    B. search for and rescue people who are in trouble

    C. help people look after patients in the hospital 

    D. identify drugs and explosives in places like the airport

    33. Which of the following is true of the electronic sniffer dog?

    A. The device uses lasers to examine for explosive materials.

    B. People have to take off their clothes when walking through the device.

    C. The device will show images of the passengers.

    D. The device can process all passengers at walking speed.

    34. The advantages of the electronic sniffer dog over the real dog include the following EXCEPT______

    A. its convenience    B. its high efficiency    C. its sensitivity     D. its low consumption

    35. The underlined word “inferior” in the last paragraph most probably has the meaning of_____.

    A. concentrating all one’s effort on a specific area       B. not as good as sb. / sth. else

    C. that cannot be clearly understood                  D. necessary for completeness

    I know that something you get that sense from TV that you can be rich and successful without any hard work---your ticket to success is through rapping or basketball or being a reality TV star .  36 

    The truth is, being successful is hard. You won’t love every subject that you study.      37    Not every homework assignment will seem completely relevant to your life right at this minute. And you won’t necessarily succeed at everything the first time your try.

    That’s okay.    38   JK Rowling---- who wrote Harry Potter---her first Harry Potter book was rejected 12 times before it was finally published. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team. He lost hundreds of games and missed thousands of shots during his career. But he once said, “I have failed over and over again in my life. And that’s why I succeed.

    These people succeeded because they understood the secret of success ---you can’t let your failures define you.    39    You have to let them show you what to do differently the next time. So if you get into trouble, that doesn’t mean you are a troublemaker, it means you need to try harder to act right.     40   

    A. If you get a bad grade, that doesn’t mean you’re stupid, it just means you need to spend more time studying.

    B. Some of the most successful people in the world are the ones who have had the most failures.

    C. You have to let your failures teach you.

    D. You won’t get along well with every teacher that you have.

    E. So many of you dream of being successful by hard work.

    F. Failures can lead you to success.

    G. Chances are you’re not going to be any of those things.
