    With a growing number of people in San Francisco choosing not to own a car, German car making company BMW has decided to branch out into car­sharing services with 70 cars spread around the city, first in 14 locations, with a further 100 being added gradually.

    “This is not an A­to­A service—it is A­to­B” says Richard Steinberg, chief executive of the Drive Now scheme(方案), pointing out that members can pick up a car downtown for the half­hour drive to the airport for only $12, compared with about $4050 for a taxi.

    Whether that is possible in real life depends on traffic, of course. A midmorning drive from Union Square down Highway 101 to the airport takes just 22 minutes; however, driving back during the rush hour takes twice as long.

    Most of the cars that are stuck in San Francisco’s traffic jams are giving off all sorts of harmful gas. But not Drive Now’s BMW Active E cars.

    “All the cars in San Francisco are electric” Mr Steinberg says.

    In San Francisco, handing back the car to Drive Now is easy—just pick one of its drop­off points, park and walk away. There are no forms to fill in, no time­consuming(耗时的) rules.

    Several other carmakers and other players within the motor industry are experimenting with similar schemes, for example Daimler’s Car2go scheme, which is operated in many cities around the world.

    “We picture a future where car­sharing members outnumber car owners in big cities around the world”says Car2go spokesman Andreas Leo.

    28. What does the underlined part “branch out into” probably mean?

         A. To start offering.   B. To try improving.

         C. To make use of.                                  D. To take control of.

    29. The Drive Now scheme________.

         A. works better in rush­hour traffic  

         B. makes city driving less dangerous

         C. encourages people to buy a cheap car

         D. allows drivers to pay money to use a car

    30. What’s special about BMW Active E cars?

         A. They are time-saving.                             B. They don’t get stuck in heavy traffic.

         C. They are environmentally friendly.           D. They are money-saving.

    31. Which of the following statements is Not True according to the passage?

         A. Some people in San Francisco feel it inconvenient to have a car.

         B. Car2go spokesman Andreas Leo is confident of car-sharing services.

         C. The Drive Now scheme is a quite success.

         D. The competition in car-sharing is fierce.

    Boys’ schools are the perfect place to teach young men to express their emotions and involve them in activities such as art, dance and music.

    A US study says that far from the traditional image of a culture of aggressive masculinity (男子气概), the absence of girls gives boys the chance to develop without pressure.

    Boys at single-sex schools were said to be more likely to get involved in cultural and artistic activities that helped develop their abilities to express their emotions, rather than feeling they had to obey to the “boy code” of hiding their emotions to be a “real man”.

    The findings of the study are against the received wisdom that boys do better when taught alongside girls.

    Tony Little, headmaster of Eton, warned that boys were being ignored by the British education system because it had become too focused on girls. He criticized teachers for failing to recognize that boys are actually more emotional than girls.

    The research argued that boys often perform badly in mixed schools because they become discouraged when their female peers do better earlier in speaking and reading skills.

     “But in single-sex schools teachers can adjust lessons to boys’ learning style, letting them move around the classroom and getting them to compete in teams to prevent boredom”, wrote the study’s author, Abigail James of the University of Virginia.

    Teachers could encourage boys to enjoy reading and writing in “boy-focused” ways such as themes and characters that interest them. Because boys generally have sharper vision, learn best through touch, and are physically more active, they need to be given “hands-on” lessons where they are allowed to walk around. “Boys in mixed schools view classical music as feminine (女性的) and prefer the modern type in which violence and sexism are major themes,” James wrote.

    Single-sex education also made it less likely that boys would feel they had to give in to a stereotype(陈词滥调) that men should be “masterful and in charge” in relationships. “In mixed schools boys feel pressed to act like men before they understand themselves well enough to know what that means,” the study reported.

    32. The author believes that a single-sex school would ____ .

         A. encourage boys to express their emotions more freely

         B. force boys to hide their emotions to be “real men”

         C. help to form masculine aggressiveness in boys

        D. naturally place stress on the traditional image of a man to boys

    33. It is commonly believed that in a mixed school boys _____ .

        A. grow up more healthily         B. perform relatively better             

         C. behave more responsibly        D. receive a better education

    34. According to Abigail James, one of the advantages of single-sex schools is _____.

        A. boys can focus on their lessons without being absent-minded

        B. boys can choose to learn whatever they are interested in

        C. teaching can be designed to improve boys’ team spirit

         D. teaching can be used to suit the characteristics of boys

    35. Which of the following is the characteristic of boys according to Abigail James’ report?

        A. They have sharper vision.                  B. They enjoy being in charge.       

        C. They act the same to stereotypes.        D. They are violent and sexist.

    Speaking in public is most people’s least favorite thing. The reason is that we are all afraid of making fools of ourselves.     36    .

    But stop biting your finger-nails. Public speaking is easy. It’s just plain talking, and you talk all the time. Although I’m basically shy (honest!), I’ve been making speeches and talking on radio and television for more than 30 years, and I can tell you that public speaking is not a “gift” like musical talent or being able to draw.     37   . Here are some of the lessons I have learned:

    Keep it simple. Your audience is going to come away with one or two of your main ideas. One or two. Not ten or twenty.     38   . And if you don’t have a clear idea of what you want to say, there’s no way your audience will.

    Get organized.     39     —how you are going to open, what major points you want to make and how you’re going to close.

    When I do a radio or TV piece, I often write the last sentence first.    40   . A strong close is critical: the last thing you say is what your audience will most likely remember.

    Keep it short. The standard length of a vaudeville act(杂耍) is usually 12 minutes. If all those performers singing and dancing their hearts out couldn’t go on longer without boring the audience, what makes you think you can?

         A. Some people are born to be good at making speech

         B. Anybody who can talk can speak in public

         C. Try to relax yourself before making the speech

         D. The more important the speech is, the more frightened we become

         E. If you can’t express in a sentence or two what you intend to express, then your speech is not focused well enough

         F. When you know where you’re headed, you can choose any route to get there

       G. No matter how long or short your speech is, you’ve got to get your ducks in a row
