School was over and I was both mentally and physically
tired. I sat at the very front of the bus because of my 36 to get home. Sitting at the front makes you 37 out like a shiny coin in a pile of dull pennies.
Janie, the driver, tries to break the 38 atmosphere by striking the match of 39 .
I try to mind my manners and 40 listen, but usually I am too busy thinking about my day. On this day, 41 , her conversation was worth listening to.
“My father's sick,” she said to no one in 42 . I could see the anxiety and fear in her eyes. With a sudden change of attitude and interest, I asked,“What's wrong with him?"
With her eyes wet and her voice tight from 43 the tears, she responded,“Heart trouble.”Her eyes lowered as she 44 . “I've already lost my mum, so I don't think I can stand losing him.”
I couldn't respond. I was 45 . My heart ached for her. I sat on the old, smelly seat thinking of the great 46 my own mother was thrown into when her father died. I saw how hard it was, 47 still is, for her. I wouldn't like anyone to go 48 that.
Suddenly I realized Janie wasn't only a bus driver. That was 49 her job. She had a whole world of family and concerns too. I had never thought of her as 50 but a driver.
I suddenly felt very 51 . I realized I had only thought of people as 52 as what their purposes were in my life. I paid no attention to Janie because she was a bus driver. I had judged her by her job and brushed her off as 53 .
For all I know, I'm just another person in 54 else's world, and may not even be important. I 55 not have been so selfish and self-centred. Everyone has places to go, people to see and appointments (约会) to keep. Understanding people is an art.

The sky is a large place, and though it had been carefully examined for centuries, new features still turn up. Last March it was the reigns of Uranus, and last week astronomer
s announced what may turn out to be a new planet, though a very small one, in the solar system.
The object was first sighted last month by Charles Kowal, an astronomer
at the Hale Observatories in Pasadena, Calif. Mr Kowal detected a faint trail of light on photographic
plates, indicating that something was moving in relation to the background of stars. Other observers have confirmed the discovery.
The“mini-planet”, identified for the time being as“Object-Kowal”, appears to be about 1.5 billion
miles away, between the orbits of Saturn and Uranus, and its diameter
has been estimated at between 100 and 400 miles. Its orbit has not been determined yet, but if the orbit proves to be roughly
circular, like that of the major planets, the new object world probably take 66 to 70 years to make a circuit of the sun.
s have speculated that Mr Kowal's discovery may be the first indication of an asteroid belt beyond Saturn.

Let's pretend we're sailing down the Rhine River on a pleasure boat. The Rhine is one of the main waterways of Germany, and the river traffic is heavy. It's interesting to watch the many boats going up and down the river. But the river traffic is not nearly so interesting as the beautiful scenery
along the banks and hillsides. The boat is passing many old castles. We can see people working in the vineyards (葡萄园) on the hillsides. There are vineyards as far as the eye can see. Wine from the Rhine Valley is famous all over the world.
Suddenly our boat slows down and begins to turn a little. We are coming to a sharp bend in the river. On our right we can see a rocky cliff over 400 feet high. At first it looks quite ordinary, but there is nothing ordinary about it. There are many stories, poems, and songs about the cliff. We are looking at the Lorelei.
The someone on the boat begins to sing in German, the song of the Lorelei. It is a song about a beautiful siren (美女) who has lured many sailors to their deaths.
The siren is supposed to sit on the rock combing her long golden hair and singing. The sailors who hear her forget to steer, and the current of river hurls their boats on the rocks and dashes them to pieces.
Soon other people on the boat begin to sing. The beautiful song adds to special magic to the moment, and you begin to realize why so many people have made this trip down the Rhine to see the rock of the Lorelei.

The famous director of a big and expensive movie planned to film a beautiful sunset over the ocean , so that the audiences could see his hero and heroine
in front of it at the end of the film as they said goodbye to each other for ever. He sent his camera crew (摄制组) out one evening to film the sunset for him.
The next morning he said to the men, "Have you provided me with that sunset?"
"No, sir,"the man answered.
The director was angry. "Why not?"he said.
“Well, sir,” one of the men answered, “We're on the east coast here, and the sun sets in the west. We can get you a sunrise
over the sea, if necessary, but not a sunset."
“But I want a sunset”the director shouted. “Go to the airport, take the next flight to the west coast, and get one.”
But then a young secretary had an idea. “Why don't you photograph a sunrise
, ” she suggested, “and then play it backwards
? Then it'll look like a sunset.”
“That's a very good idea!” the director said. Then he turned to the camera crew and said,“Tomorrow morning I want you to get me a beautiful sunrise
over the sea.”
The camera crew went out early the next morning and filmed a bright sunrise
over the beach in the middle of a beautiful bay. Then at nine o'clock they took it to the director. “Here it is, sir," they said, and gave it to him. He was very please.
They all went into the studio.“All right,”the director explained, “now our hero and heroine
are going to say goodbye. Run the film backwards
so that we can see the ‘sunset’ behind them.”
The “sunset”began, but after a quarter of a minute, the director suddenly put his face in his hands and shouted to the camera crew to stop.

Hugh Troy, a well-known artist, was a very interesting and clever person who spent most of his life playing tricks for the joy of it.
One winter in the 1920s, while a student at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, Troy got hold of a very old and ugly wastebasket with a real rhinoceros (犀牛) foot as its base. He filled it with metal weights and tied 30 feet of clothes|line to either side. Late one night he and a friend carried it out onto campus (校园), pulling the lines straight between them. Every few feet they would lower it into the snow, their own footprints so far away as to raise no suspicions (怀疑).
The next morning someone noticed the prints and invited learned
professors to come and have a look. Excitedly, they followed the rhinoceros tracks. Then they were led onto the ice covering Beeb Lake, which connected (连接) to where the school got its drinking water. There the tracks ended in a huge (very large ) hole.
It was said that half the population of Cornell stopped drinking tap water. Those who continued to drink it insisted that it tasted like rhinoceros.
68. What was Troy doing when the story began?
A. He was working as an artist. B. He was studying in the university.
C. He was examining a rhinoceros foot. D. He was doing rhinoceros experiments.
69. Why did Troy fill the basket with metal weights?

professors to examine the prints?
A. They knew where the rhinoceros existed (生存) in winter.
B. They might be able to explain what had happened.
C. They were looking for this animal just then.
D. They enjoyed following animal tracks.
71. Troy wanted people to believe that a rhinoceros .
A. might appear on campus again B. might exist in this area all the time
C. had dug a hole for its winter home D. had fallen into the lake through a hole
If you've been joining in chat room conversations, or trading email with Webpals, you have become one of the millions who write in a peculiarly
short form of English.
And you've got a sense of humour about short forms like SOHF (=sense of humour failure) to describe Internet newcomers who don't understand you.
Across the globe, every night teenagers and their elders are“talking”on-line—many of them all talking at the same time.
It's fast: try talking to six people at once. It's brief: three or four per exchange. It takes wit, concentration, and quick fingers.
And it requires tremendous linguistic
economy. There's neither time nor space for explanations. Why consume precious key-strokes telling six friends you have to leave for a moment to take care of your little brother when BRB ( be right back) will do? Want to enter a conversation? Just type PMFJI (pardon me for jumping in).
Interested in whom you're talking to? Type A S L, the nearly universal request to know your pal's age, sex and location
. You may get 15 M NY as a response
from your pal.
If something makes you laugh, say you're OTF(on the floor) or LoL (laughing out loud), or combine the two into ROTFL(rolling on the floor laughing).
And when it's time to get back to work or go to bed, you type GTG (got to go) or TTYL (talk to you later).
People want to write as fast as possible, and they want to get their ideas across as quickly as they can. Capital letters are left in the dust, except when expressing emotion, as it takes more time to hold down the“shift”key and capitals. Punctuation is going, too.?
72. Many people talk on the Internet .
A. by sending short emails
B. by using a particular short form of English
C. by using peculiar English words and expressions
D. in a funny way
73. In order to talk to several people at the same time on the Internet .
A. you have to speak fast and fluently
B. you should speak with wit and humour
C. you have to express your ideas in a brief way
D. one should pay much attention to the accuracy
of the words
74. If you get 17 F NY as an answer to your A S L, it means .
A. the person on the other end is 17 from New York and he is fine
B. you are talking to a girl who is 17 and lives in New York
C. you are talking to 17 girls who are from New York
D. the person who are talking to you is a 1.7—foot tall New York girl
75. To save time on the Internet .
A. some people leave their letters in the dust bin
B. some people never use“shift”in their writing
C. many people leave the capital and punctuation
D. people seldom use capital letters or punctuation

How many of you drink coca-cola? Nearly everybody. Did you know that cola started out not as a soft drink, but as a cure for headache
back in the late eighteen hundreds?
John S. Pamberton, a doctor from Atlanta had experimented for many months to find a cure for the common headache
. He worked at his home mixing and heating oils with other materials until he found one mixture that seemed to have good effect on headache
He began to sell the mixture in drugstores. The customers had to mix it with water before drinking.
Then, how did cola change from a drug to a soft drink? That came about quite by accident. One day a patient who was suffering from headache
came into a drugstore. He asked for a bottle of cola. He wanted to take it right away, so he asked the clerk to mix the medicine while he waited. It so happened there was no boiled water at the store. The clerk suggested mixing the drug with soda water. The customer agreed. After drinking it, the customer said it tasted wonderful. The clerk continued offering
the mixture, and cola gradually became popular.
Now about the news. An early morning fire damaged the historic
Gallad House today. It destroyed the third floor of the building but fire fighters saved the first and the second floors. There were only a few elderly
people living in the building at the time and they were carried out to safety. The Gallad House was built in 1718 and was used as a hotel for over 150 years. George Washington stayed here in 1782. The Gallad family owned the building for the elderly
. Several fire departments were called to the scene. When we asked Fire Chief Andrew Bond how the fire started, he answered that it was most likely a burning cigarette caused it. Chief Bond promised to further examine the cause.?

Computers in China
According to a recent investigation, about 30% of the city families have computers. Besides, many village people are more and more interested in computers and some of them even have bought computers. About 70% of the parents bought computers for their children to study, and some for their work. And even some people bought them for entertainment. The fact how the middle school students use the computers really surprises us. Only about 30% of them use computers to find out useful in formation
. About 60% use computers to play games and 20% use computers to watch VCDs or listen to music. In my opinion, we should make better use of our best invention— computers.
