When Lew Alcindor was 13, and obviously still growing, a group of schools began offering him scholarships . The Alcindors decided to send their only child to Power Memorial Academy, a small school on Manhattan’s West Side.
At Power, Alcindor came under the control of Coach Jack Donohue, a strict young man who already gained his fame as one of the best coaches in the city. Donohue brought Alcindor along slowly. As a first-year student, the boy was not able to do much but wave his long skinny arms and shoot a basket now and then. But by the second year, when he was 15 years old and nearly 7 feet tall, Alcindor was quick and skillful enough to make the high school All-American team and to lead Power to an undefeated season.
From then on he simply got better. Some rival coaches used to take their teams quickly away from the floor before Power warmed up so that their players would not see him any sooner than they had to. Wearing size 16D shoes and sucking a lollipop (棒棒糖), Alcindor would loosen up by starting his leaping lay-ups (跨越式上篮). Then he would casually shoot the ball with either hand, to the delight of the fans.
When reporters and photographers began to follow Alcindor closely, Donohue protected his boy firmly. He simply ordered Lew to talk to no member of the press, and this suited Lew fine. He was not comfortable talking to grown-ups, perhaps because he towered over them. Discouraged photographers began following him in secret as though he were an easily-frightened giraffe. Once after ducking into a subway to escape, Alcindor told a friend that it was all becoming like policemen and robbers. “People want you not for yourself,” Donohue warned him, “but because you’re a basketball player. Don’t forget that. ”
21. Many schools offered Alcindor scholarships because_________.
A. he was young B. he was hardworking
C. he was tall for his age D. he was skillful at playing basketball
22. Why did some rival coaches take their teams away from the floor before Power warmed up?
A. Their teams refused to play Power. B. Their teams feared to see Alcindor.
C. Their teams would lose courage. D. Their teams would lose interest.
23. What does the last paragraph mainly discuss?
A. How Donohue protected Alcindor from the press
B. How Alcindor disliked meeting reporters
C. Why the press followed Alcindor closely
D. Why the public wanted Alcindor badly
Supermarkets are trying out new computers that make shopping carts （购物车）more intelligent. They will help shoppers find cups or toilet soap, and keep a record of the bill.The touch-screen devices are on show at the Food Marketing Institute’s exhibition here this week. "These devices are able to create value and get you around the store quicker," said Michael Alexandor, manager of Springboard Retail Networks Inc., which makes a smart cart computer called the Concierge.
Canadian stores will test the Concierge in July. A similar device, IBM’s "shopping buddy," has recently been test-marketed at Stop & Shop stores in Massachusetts. Neither device tells you how many fat grams or calories are in your cart, but they will flash you with items on sale. The idea is to make it easier for people to buy, not to have second thoughts that maybe you should put something back on the shelf.
“The whole model is driven by advertisers’ need to get in front of shoppers,” said Alexandor. People can use a home computer to make their shopping lists. Once at the store, a shopper can use a preferred customer card to start a system that will organize the trip around the store. If you’re looking for toothpicks, you type in the word or pick it from a list, and a map will appear on the screen showing where you are and where you can find them.
The devices also keep a record of what you buy. When you’re finished, the device figures out your bill. Then you go to the checker or place your card into a self-checkout stand and pay. The new computerized shopping assistants don’t come. The Buddy devices will cost the average store about $160,000, and the Concierge will cost stores about $500 for each device.
24. Which of the following is the correct order of shopping with the computerized shopping carts?
a. Start the system. b. Make a shopping list.
c. Find the things you want. d. Go to a self-checkout stand.
A. abdc B. bacd C. acbd D. bcad
25. We can learn from the last paragraph that_________.
A. intelligent shopping carts cost a large sum of money
B. the Concierge is cheaper than the Buddy devices
C. shop assistants with computer knowledge are well paid
D. average stores prefer the Concierge to the Buddy devices
26. What might be the most suitable title for the text?
A. New age for supermarkets
B. Concierge and Shopping Buddy
C. New computers make shopping carts smarter
D. Touch-screen devices make shopping enjoyable
Treasure hunts(寻宝) have excited people's imagination for hundreds of years both in real life and in books such as Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Kit Williams, a modern writer, had the idea of combining the real excitement of a treasure hunt with clues found in a book when he wrote a children's story, Masquerade（化装舞会）, in 1979. The book was about a hare, and a month before it came out Williams buried a gold hare in a park in Bedfordshire. The book contained a large number of clues to help readers find the hare, but Williams put in a lot of red herrings（鲱鱼）, or false clues, to mislead them.
Ken Roberts, the man who found the hare, had been looking for it for nearly two years. Although he had been searching in the wrong area most of the time, he found it by logic, not by luck. His success came from the fact that he had gained an important clue at the start. He had realized that the words, "One of Six to Eight" under the first picture in the book connected the hare in some way to Katherine of Aragon, the first of Henry VIII's six wives. Even here, however, Williams had succeeded in misleading him. Ken knew that Katherine of Aragon had died at Kimbolton in Cambridgeshire in 1536 and thought that Williams had buried the hare there. He had been digging there for over a year before a new idea occurred to him. He found out that Kit Williams had spent his childhood near Ampthill, in Bedfordshire, and thought that he must have buried the hare in a place he knew well, but he still could not see the connection with Katherine of Aragon, until one day he came across two stone crosses in Ampthill Park and learnt that they had been built in her honor in 1773.
Even then his search had not come to an end. It was only after he had spent several nights digging around the cross that he decided to write to Kit Williams to find out if he was wasting his time there. Williams encouraged him to continue, and on February 24th, 1982, he found the treasure. It was worth ￡3000 in the beginning, but the excitement it had caused since its burial made it much more valuable.
27. The underlined word “them” ( paragraph 1) refers to ______.
A. red herrings B. treasure hunts
C. Henry VIII's six wives D. readers of masquerade
28. The stone crosses in Ampthill were built ______.
A. to tell about what happened in 1773 B. to show respect for Henry VIII's first wife
C. to serve as a road sign in Ampthill Park D. to inform people where the gold hare was
29. Which of the following describes Roberts logic in searching for the hare?
a. Henry VIII's six wives b. Katherine's burial place at Kimbolton
c. Williams childhood in Ampthill d. Katherine of Aragon e. stone crosses in Ampthill Park
A. a-b-c-e-d B. d-b-c-e-a
C. a-d-b-c-e D. b-a-e-c-d
30. What is the subject discussed in the text?
A. An exciting historical event. B. A modern treasure hunt.
C. The attraction of Masqurrade. D. The importance of logical thinking.

In Thanks for What We Have
I sat nervously and waited for Kathleen to speak. Being called to the human resources department is a little like being called to the principal’s office. “Annie,” she said, “A food bank in our town that serves the elderly is asking for 36 . I’d like you to organize the event and see it through.” “Well, um, errr…sure. I guess so.” As I stuttered (结结巴巴地说) through my 37 , all I could think was, “What? Why me?”
I walked back to my office without any idea as to where to 38 . This was a time when the economy was 39 . The rise in unemployment forced the families of many of my coworkers to 40 to survive. How could I ask my coworkers for more?

Two days later Jim picked up the 42 and left four liters of milk. He wrote his own message on the back side of Mom’s. It read, “Kids need milk.” The milk delivery 43 as usual and Jim left four liters of milk every other day, never collecting a cent 44 us.
The memory of Jim’s 45 fired my enthusiasm. Perhaps I’d be in for a pleasant surprise. The next morning I 46 signs about our food drive all over the cafeteria and on every notice board I could find. Each sign read, “Food drive to support the elderly poor of our town! 47 of non-perishable(不易腐的) foods are greatly needed.”
Within a few days I had to locate empty office space to 48 the massive number of contributions we had 49 . One of my coworkers, Maggie, made the rounds with me every day from one department to another to pick up the canned goods and other 50 . Maggie was over sixty but pushed our food trolley around with the 51 of a woman half her age.
As we were making our rounds one day，I asked her where she got all the energy and enthusiasm. “Annie,” she said, “with the unemployment rate touching 10 percent, I can’t think of a better way to be 52 for keeping our jobs when so many have 53 theirs. Sure money is 54 . But when isn’t it? People need food.” As I listened to Maggie, the milkman’s words 55 in my ears, “Kids need milk.”

How an unbelievable scene! A modern young couple were eating fruit in public and had thrown a plenty of waste on the ground. When an old cleaner comes to clean up, the man was very angry. He pointed at the cleaner, said in a loud voice," How impolite! They haven't finished eating!" " How could people behave such badly?" I thought. Obvious, in their eyes, they could do all they liked and ignore others’ feelings. In my opinion, we should pay attention our behavior, obey public rules and respect other people’s works. We should know that really civilized people are those who have good manners but a beautiful mind all the time.

How is everything going? I am glad to receive your e-mail, in which you asked me about my career plan for the future. Now I am writing to share it with you in details.
I made up my mind to be a journalist when I visited the Xinhua News Agency, the top one in China, last year. I chose it as my career based on the following two reasons. First, it is a job that can get me exposed to new things every day and thus keep me energetic and passionate all the time since I really hate to follow the same routine every day. Second, working as a journalist can help realize my childhood dream of being a hero by fighting against evil and spreading justice.
To achieve this goal, I plan to apply for the Communication University of China, whose major, Journalism, has been ranked the first for many years in a row across the whole country. After getting my Bachelor Degree of Journalism, I will continue my study in a world-famous university to broaden my horizons to better fit my future post.
That is all about my career plan. What do you think of it? I am looking forward to hearing yours if you have got one.

M: Oh, that's right. I did ask him to bring the latest magazines to me. I completely forgot.
M: OMG！ Finally it's over.
W: Why do you say that? Based on the best-seller by the famous writer, lots of people like it.
M: Except me. It was hard for me to understand the story.
W: But the leading actress is my favorite.
W: Excuse me， can you take me to the Friendship Hotel?
M: Sure. I am going past it to the Sun Hotel. Step in and bang the door, please.
W: Do you think I can get to the hotel before 11:00？
M: We should make it if the lights are with us, for it's a quarter past ten.
W: This is not the rush hour. The traffic is not very heavy.
M: We are lucky. We're fifteen minutes ahead of time. 10 dollars, please.
W: I'm sorry to hear you've been ill, Mike.
M: Well, I had the flu for a couple of days, but I'm fine now.
W: You're looking well. By the way, Mike, did you hear about our team leader?
M: No. I just wonder why he didn't show up in the last important game.
W: He had such bad flu that they had to take him to the hospital.
M: Oh, I didn't know that! And I'm sorry to hear that!
W: Don't worry. He will be all right soon.
W: Would you like to enjoy a performance of Beijing Opera? It is the national opera of our country.
M: Wonderful idea! Do you know where we can enjoy it?
W: How about Chang'an Grand Theatre? It's the best place to enjoy Beijing Opera.

W: Not necessary. I called the theater just now and they still have plenty of seats available for tonight's show.
M: How nice！
W: Yes. And the name of tonight's show is White Snake. It's a traditional play of Beijing Opera and the story is touching. It's really worth seeing.
M: You bet. Then when shall we meet?
W: Congratulations, Mr. Yang.
W: I heard that you did a lot of sports. Are you a professional marathoner?
M: No, I'm an amateur. But I am a sports fan and exercise every day.
W: How hard do you have to train in marathon?
M: I do it for about 2 hours every day except Saturday.
W: How many sports do you do?
M: Quite a few, like jogging, swimming, cycling, boxing, soccer and some others.
W: Why do you like swimming?

W: And cycling? What's cycling good for?

M: Yes, that's right. Boxing is good for many things, and very good for breathing. It's also very relaxing.

W: Great. Here we are. Oh, you're traveling with an infant today.
M: Yes, my daughter Mia. She'll be two years old next month. She is going to see her mother abroad.
W: Okay. I'll need to see your daughter's birth certificate to prove her age.
M: Here you are. Say, would we be able to get a seat convenient for a walk? I may have to walk her around if she gets curious.
W: Sure. I'll put you near the washroom too.
M: Thanks. I'll take my backpack.
W: Did you pack these bags yourself?
W: Okay. Here is your boarding pass. Be at the gate one hour before boarding time. You will be able to board ahead of schedule because you are traveling with an infant. Our flight crew will have some special instructions for take-off and landing.
