答案:New Digital Age of Interactivity



On average, American kids aged 3 to 12 spent 29 hours a week in school, eight hours more than they did in 1981. They also did more household work and participated in more of such organized activities as soccer and ballet (芭蕾舞). Involvement in sports, in particular, rose almost 50% from 1981 to 1997: boys now spend an average of four hours a week playing sports; girls log hall that time. All in all, however, children's leisure time dropped from 40% of the day in 1981 to 25%.
"Children are affected by the same time crunch (危机) that affects their parents," says Sandra Hofferth, who headed the recent study of children's timetable. A chief reason, she says, is that more mothers are working outside the home. (Nevertheless, children in both double-income and "male breadwinner" households spent comparable amounts of time interacting with their parents: 19 hours and 22 hours respectively. In contrast, children spent only 9 hours with their single mothers.)
All work and no play could make for some very messed-up kids. "Play is the most powerful way a child explores the world and learns about himself," says T. Berry Brazelton, professor at Harvard Medical School.
Unstructured play encourages independent thinking and allows the young to negotiate their relationships with their peers, but kids aged 3 to 12 spent only 12 hours a week engaging in it.
The children sampled spent a quarter of their rapidly decreasing "free time" watching television. But that, believe it or not, was one of the findings parents might regard as good news. If they're spending less time in front of the TV set, however, kids aren't replacing it with reading. Despite efforts to get kids more interested in books, the children spent just over an hour a week reading. Let's face it, who's got the time
1. By mentioning "the same time crunch" (Line 1, Para. 2) Sandra Hofferth means _______.
A) children have little time to play with their parents
B) children are not taken good care of by their working parents
C) both parents and children suffer from lack of leisure time
D) both parents and children have trouble managing their time
2. According to the author, the reason given by Sandra Hofferth for the time crunch is _______.
A) quite convincing B) partially true
C) totally groundless D) rather confusing
3. According to the author, a child develops better if _______.
A) he has plenty of time reading and studying
B) he is left to play with his peers in his own way
C) he has more time participating in school activities
D) he is free to interact with his working parents
4. The author is concerned about the fact that American kids _______.
A) are engaged in more and more structured activities
B) are increasingly neglected by their working mothers
C) are spending more and more time watching TV
D) are involved less and less in household work
5. We can infer from the passage that _______.
A) extracurricular activities promote children's intelligence
B) most children will turn to reading with TV sets switched off
C) efforts to get kids interested in reading have been fruitful
D) most parents believe reading to be beneficial to children




Not all memories are sweet. Some people spend all their lives trying to forget bad experiences. Violence and traffic accidents can leave people with terrible physical and emotional scars. Often they relive(重新体验) these experiences in nightmares (噩梦).

Now American researchers think they are close to developing a pill, which will help people forget bad memories. The pill is designed to be taken immediately after a frightening experience. They hope it might reduce, or possibly erase (抹去), the effect of painful memories.

In November, experts tested a drug on people in the US and France. The drug stops the body releasing (释放) chemicals that fix memories in the brain. So far the research has suggested that only the emotional effects of memories may be reduced, not that the memories are erased.

The research has caused a great deal of argument. Some think it is a bad idea, while others support it. Supporters say it could lead to pills that prevent or treat soldiers’ troubling memories after war. They say that there are many people who suffer from terrible memories. “Some memories can ruin people’s lives. They come back to you when you don’t want to have them in a daydream or nightmare. They usually come with very painful emotions,” said Roger Pitman, a professor of psychiatry (精神病学) at Harvard Medical School. “This could relieve a lot of that suffering.”

But those who are against the research say that changing memories is very dangerous because memories give us our identity (特质). They also help us all avoid the mistakes of the past. “All of us can think of bad events in our lives that were horrible at the time but make us who we are. I’m not sure we’d want to wipe those memories out,” said Rebecca Dresser, a medical ethicist (伦理学家). Some people fear that although the drug would first be used in only very serious cases, it would become more and more common. “People always have the ability to misuse science,” said Joseph LeDoux, a New York University memory researcher. “All we want to do is help people have better control of memories.”

  1. The passage is mainly about _____.
   A a new medical invention
   B a new research on memories
   C a way of erasing painful memories
   D an argument about the research on the pill

  2. The drug tested on people can ____.
   A cause the brain to fix memories
   B stop people remembering their experiences
   C prevent body producing certain chemicals
   D wipe out the emotional effects of memories

  3. We can infer from the passage that_____.
   A people doubt the effects of the pills
   B the pill will stop people’s bad experiences
   C taking the pill will do harm to people’s health
   D the pill has probably been produced in America

  4. Which of the following does Rebecca Dresser agree with?
   A Some memories can ruin people’s lives.
   B People want to get rid of bad memories.
   C Experiencing bad events makes us different from others.
   D The pill will reduce people’s sufferings from bad memories.

  5. The word “scars” in Paragraph One is close in meaning to ____.
   A good stories
   B pains
   C experiences
   D memories

答案: D C D C B

Throughout history man has had to accept the fact that all living things must die, but people now live longer than they used to. Yet, all 1.living things still show the effect of aging, which will eventually 2.result in death. The body and the 3.organs,they do not function as well as they 4.did in childhood and adolescence. The body provides less 5.protection against disease and is more prone 6.to accident.

A number of related causes may 7.contribute to aging. Some cells of the body have a 8. fairly long life, but they are not 9.replaced when they die and. As a person age,10.the number of brain cells and muscle cells decreases. Other body cells die and  are replaced by new cells. In an aging person the 11.new cells may not be as viable or as capable 12.of growth as those of a young person.

Another factor in aging may be changes within the cells 13.themselves. some of the protein chemicals in cells 14.are known to change 15.with age and become less elastic. This is why the skin of old people wrinkles and hangs loose. This is also the reason old people shrink in 16.height. there may be other more important chemical changes in the cells. Some complex cell chemicals, 17,such as DNA and RNA, store and 18. pass on information that the cells need. Aging may 19.affect this process and change the information carrying molecules 20.so that they do not transmit the information as well.

Face To Face Communication






Face-to-face vs. Other Types of Communication

  When deciding between face-to-face communication and other types, such as e-mail and telephone calls, the kind of communication one thinks is better depends on the definition of “better”. Face-to-face communication is usually the most effective form because there is the least chance for a misunderstanding to occur. On the other hand, letters, e-mail, and telephone calls are more efficient means of communication. In my opinion, the latter type of communication is better because efficiency is becoming increasingly important in the workplace.

  There are times when information must be communicated with exactness, and at such times a face-to-face conversation would be better. However, this is not always necessary or feasible. Many times we have to communicate with people who are far away. Traveling to meet them would be both prohibitively expensive and take a great deal of time. In these cases other forms of communication, especially electronic communication, are more appropriate. In addition, letters and e-mail allow us to have a record of the communication. This can be referred back to later should any dispute arise. Finally, these are types of communication that allow us to send messages when it is convenient. We do not have to match the schedule of another person.

  In conclusion, letters, e-mail, and telephone calls are more efficient means of communication than a face-to-face conversation. They allow us to save both time and money. In today’s world I think these are very important factors to consider. Therefore, I believe that these forms of communication are better.
