    Many years ago, when I was fresh out of school and working in Denver, I was driving to my parents' home in Missouri for Christmas. I stopped at a gas station about 50 miles from Oklahoma City, where I was planning to stop and visit a friend. While I was standing in line at the cash register(收款台), I said hello to an older couple who were also paying for gas.

    I took off, but had gone only a few miles when black smoke poured from the back of my car. I stopped and wondered what I should do. A car pulled up behind me. It was the couple I had spoken to at the gas station. They said they would take me to my friend's. We chatted on the way into the city, and when I got out of the car, the husband gave me his business card.I wrote him and his wife a thank-you note for helping me. Soon afterward, I received a Christmas present from them. Their note that came with it said that helping me had made their holidays meaningful.

    Years later, I drove to a meeting in a nearby town in the morning. In late afternoon, I returned to my car and found that I'd left the lights on all day, and the battery was dead. Then I noticed that the Friendly Ford dealership — a shop selling cars — was right next door. I walked over and found two salesmen in the showroom.

    "Just how friendly is Friendly Ford?" I asked and explained my trouble. They quickly drove a pickup truck to my car and started it. They would accept no payment, so when I got home, I wrote them a note to say thanks. I received a letter back from one of the salesmen. No one had ever taken the time to write him and say thank you, and it meant a lot, he said.

    "Thank you" — two powerful words. They're easy to say and mean so much.

    Internet data shows that younger adults have become the main audience crazy about changing their appearance. Once the world of the female in her fifties, plastic surgery(整形手术) has become the focus of the younger Internet users.

    The recent death of Stephanie Kuleba, an 18-year-old high school cheerleader who died as a result of plastic surgery, brought our attention to the fashion of becoming a more “ideal” body among teenagers. In fact, search data confirms this phenomenon. One of the most popular sites visited from the search term “plastic surgery” is the official site of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (www. plastic surgery. org). Over 25% of the visitors, which is up from 19.6% two years ago, fell within the 18 to 24 years old.

    Plastic surgery has become an American obsession (痴迷). Checking other countries, such as the UK and Australia, the 18 to 24-year-old’s being interested in plastic surgery is an obvious US phenomenon. Unlike the other groups who visit sites related to diseases and keeping healthy, younger Internet users rush to sites that deal with personal appearance, such as those focused on body-building, weight loss and skin-care, and obviously plastic surgery.

    While television on surgery may be driving the interest of a younger audience, one factor appears to be a key in preventing such teens from changing their bodies: the failing U.S. economy. There has been a decline in all plastic surgery topics over the last year. While older age continue to search for information on procedures such as liposuction(抽脂), it’s younger Internet users who in tough economic times are focusing on improving their outer beauty, though at a discount price.

    28. Why does the author mention the death of the 18-year-old cheerleader?

      A. To show cheerleaders pay more attention to their appearance.

      B. To warn people that plastic surgery is not as safe as it is said to be.

      C. To prove the fact that people will pursue beauty at any cost.

      D. To draw attention to the issue of young people having plastic surgery.

    29. While young people are surfing on the Internet, they are very interested in____________.

      A. how to be physically and mentally healthy.

      B. how to make themselves look young.

      C. how to prevent and cure diseases.

      D. how to have more attractive appearance.

    30. What may affect young people’s decision on whether to have plastic surgery?

      A. The safety of the operation

      B. The total expense of the surgery.

      C. The need for having the operation.

      D. The results of the surgery.

    31. What can we learn from the last paragraph?

      A. Americans, old or young, are crazy about plastic surgery.

      B. Liposuction is the most expensive plastic surgery.

      C. Outer beauty means more to young people than inner beauty.

      D. Young people often get discount when having plastic surgery.

    LONDON—Manchester is Britain’s fattest city, a survey for “Men’s Health” has found, beating Glasgow for the first time since the magazine started examining the issue three years ago.

    Editor Pete Muir said the survey had looked at a variety of factors from gym membership to heart disease rates to find the fattest city. “Manchester has more fast food restaurants than anywhere else in the UK,” he told Reuters. “People are taking the easy choice —eating and then just sitting in front of the TV.”

    Manchester’s problem is part of a wider trend. On Thursday, the Office of National Statistics (ONS) blamed a lack of exercise and poor diet for a fifth of adult Britons being obese. “Obesity is a major risky factor related to heart disease, diabetes and premature death(糖尿病和早亡),” said an ONS survey. “None of the 108 young men in the survey reported eating five portions of fruit or vegetables on average each day.”

    In Manchester, the head of the city’s public health programs said he did not believe that they were necessarily the fattest city, but that they did have problems and were aiming to address them. Social deprivation(贫困) was a major factor. “One of the myths is that the stressed-out rich businessman is the one who is overweight,” David Regan told Reuters. “In fact, it is the poor areas that have the most problems. We aim not to be the fattest but the fittest city but we have a long way to go.”

    Second in the survey is Stoke-on-Trent, followed by Liverpool, Swansea and Leicester. Glasgow is sixth.

    32. Manchester took the place of ____________ and became Britain’s fattest city.

    A. Liverpool    B. London    C. Stoke-on-Trent    D. Glasgow

    33. Obesity may lead to the following EXCEPT _______________.

    A. heart disease B. diabetes   C. premature death    D. a lack of exercise

    34. David Regan is most probably _________________.

    A. the reporter from Reuters       B. an official of ONS

    C. the head of Manchester’s public health programs  

    D. a rich businessman who is overweight

    35. This article is most probably taken from ________________.

    A. a newspaper     B. a science book   C. a novel         D. a biography

    Exercise is very important when it comes to dropping pounds. So if you’re eager to lose weight, then here are three everyday changes that will help increase your calorie burn.

    Hello Sunshine

       76   . Research shows that people who exercise in the morning work harder and for longer periods, which may be because they’re clearer in thinking and more energetic and they don’t feel as rushed as afternoon or evening exercisers.   77    , which will help even more with your weigh-loss journey.


    When it comes to cardio(有氧运动), running will help you lose more weight than walking since it burns more calories. But if you increase your speed just a little, then you’ll burn even more.    79   . Adding sprinting intervals(间隔冲刺) is a useful way to increase your calorie burn and has also been proven to reduce belly(腹部) fat. Also be sure to swing your arms as you move, and you’ll burn 15 percent more calories.

    Strength Train

    Muscle burns more calories than fat does, so the more muscle quality you have, the better it is for weight loss.    80   . Include strength-training moves throughout your day, such as push-ups on the bathroom counter and kick your legs while brushing your teeth. You can also work your body by carrying a basket instead of pushing a cart, using the stairs whenever possible and sitting on an exercise ball instead of a chair.

    A. Getting into a morning routine will also help you stick with it

    B. Run instead of walking

    C. Muscles exercise is the key to weight-loss

    D. And don’t stick to a consistent pace during the entire training

    E. Morning exercises burn more calories

    F. Don’t just hit the weight room at the gym

    G. Get Speedy
