During the winter, we were giving away coffee or soup to the homeless,” said man ager Mike Pattison, “Staff members are always close to the coffeehouse’ front door, and (26) ___________ they see someone walking by who looks like they want, a coffee but can’t afford it, they approach that person. If the offer (27) ___________ (accept), they provide the coffee.”

However, not everyone supports the idea.

Smart Phone Application Tracks Mental Health

Military service is obviously rough on a service member’s mental health. According to some

31____, 30 percent of service members develop some type of mental health issue within four months

of returning home after leaving the army.

The military is spending more money than ever to 32____mental health issues within the ranks, and their latest attempt is a smart phone application called the T2 MoodTracker application, which helps service members keep track of their mental health after leaving the army. The app works like a high-tech diary, allowing users to 33____ emotions and behaviors that result from therapy, medication, daily experiences or changes happening at work or in the home. The smart phone app isn’t supposed to be a pocket 34 ____, though. It serves more as an extremely accurate and 35

____record of a service mem ber’s mental health.

Perry Bosmajian is a psychologist with the National Center for TeleHealth and Technology, where this smart phone app was created. He says this smart phone app will produce much more accurate results on the36 ____conditions of service members who have returned home. “Therapists and physicians often have to rely on patient 37____ when trying to gather information about symptoms over the previous weeks or months,” Bosmajian said.“Research has shown that information collected after the fact, especially about mood, tends to be 38____. The best record of an experience is when it’s recorded at the time and place it happens.”

The app specifically tracks anxiety, depression, general well-being, life stress, post-traumatic (受伤后的)stress and brain injury. The daily expressions add up over time to produce a(n) 39____ that can be observed by physicians and therapists.

The app has been downloaded more than 5,000 times since it became 40____ on the Android Market a year ago. Users of iPhones can also have access to the app some time next year.

Directions Matter

Jet lag(时差感)may be the worst part of travelling, and it hits many people harder travelling east than west. Why they feel this way is 41________, but scientists recently developed a new model

that provides an explanation for the mystery and insights on recovering from jet lag.

The model imitates the way neuronal oscillator cells (神经振子细胞)42________ crossing time zones. These cells in our brains 43 ________our biological docks. However,the cells don’t quite operate on a perfect 24-hour schedule. Instead, their activity follows a 44________ that lasts slightly longer than that, about 24.5 hours. According to Michelle Girvan, an associate professor

of physics at the University of Maryland and a co-author of the study, that means it’s 45________ for us to extend the length of a day—for example, by flying west across time zones—than to shorten the day, by flying east.

The scientists found that for 46________ travel, a person who crossed three time zones would fully 47________in a little less than four days. For six time zones, recovery would take about six days. For nine time zones, the recovery would take just less than eight days.

However, when a person travels eastward, the recovery time doesn’t match up as

48________. When a person crosses three time zones going east, it takes a little more than four days to recover. For six time zones, the recovery time 49________ to more than eight days. And for nine time zones, the recovery period is more than 12 days.

Girvan noted that not everyone has a biological clock of exactly 24.5 hours. 50________ , it varies from person to person. The other factor to consider is 51________ cues such as sunlight, Girvan added. How a person reacts to these cues can also 52________how quickly he or she will adjust to a new time zone.

The scientists hope that their new model can be used in the future to figure out the best ways to 53________ jet lag. For example, if you will be traveling six time zones eastward, start by setting your clock ahead an hour or two several days before you leave. And when you arrive in a new time zone, make sure that the outside cues you are exposed to 54 ________the new time zone. That means that if it’s daytime in the new time zone, expose yourself to sunlight. And if it’s nighttime, avoid artificial 55________, including those from smartphones and computers, to help your biological clock adjust.

A woman standing over six feet tall and weighing about 200 pounds is bound to make an impression. But in Mary Fields’ case, these features were o utmatched by a heart of gold that made her legendary(传奇的).

Born into slavery in Tennessee in 1832 or 1833, Mary had nothing, not even a date of birth. However, in her early years, she found something of truly lasting value—a friend named Dolly. In addition to friendship, Dolly also may have taught Mary to read and write, an invaluable advantage for slaves. At the end of America’s Civil War, Mary finally received her freedom and made her own way out into the world.

Mary was employed on a steamboat as a maid when she received word from Dolly, now a nun (修女)in Ohio called Mother Amadeus. Mary arrived in Ohio in 1878 and worked at Amadeus’ girls’ school, managing the kitchen and garden. She became known as a gun-carrying,

cigar-smoking woman, but also as an example of kindness and reliability. After a few years, though, Amadeus was sent to another school out West in Montana, becoming the first black woman to settle in central Montana.

When Mary was in her 50s, a sick Mother Amadeus called her West. So Mary made her way to the small town of Cascade, Montana, to nurse Amadeus to health. She did this and more, running supplies and visitors to St. Peter’s Mission where Amadeus lived. Once when her wagon(四轮马车) overturned, she guarded the delivery from wolves through the night.

But Mary's rough edges caused the local bishop (主教) to prohibit her from working at the mission. Mother Amadeus then set her up as the first African-American female employee of the U.S. Postal Service. Though in her 60s, Mary was such a dependable mail carrier that she earned the name “tagecoach” Mary. She became a beloved figure in Cascade. She was the only woman allowed in the saloon (酒馆), was the baseball team’s biggest fan and was given free meals in the town hotel.

Nearly 70, Mary quit delive ring the mail but remained in Cascade. The town’s school closed to celebrate her unknown birthday twice a year. When she passed away in 1914, a simple cross was placed to mark her grave and her legend in the Wild West.

56. What about Mary Fields impressed people most?

A. Her tall and fat figure.

B. Her reputation as an educated slave.

C. Her friendliness and responsibility.

D. Her habit of carrying a gun and smoking.

57. Which of the following shows Mary’s life experience in the order of time?

①Mary began to deliver mail in Cascade.

②Mary worked in a school in Montana.

③Mary was taught to read and write.

④Mary took care of sick Amadeus.

Two heads are better than one, according to the old saying. So why are groups with lots of “heads” known for making bad decisions? Why does “groupthink” immediately mean ineffectiveness and mistakes?

These questions are answered in a fascinating new book called Wiser: Getting Beyond Groupthink to Make Groups Smarter, written by Cass R. Sunstein, a former White House official, and Reid Hastie, an academic specialized in the psychology of decision making. Building on their combined experiences and research, Sunstein and Hastie analyze what goes wrong in group decision-making, and then offer clear-out solutions to overcome these problems.

Group decision-making involves discussions among members of a group, each with their own skills, experience, ideas and information. Unfortunately, as the authors explain, there are two types of influence on group members—informational signals and social pressures—which skew (扭曲)the discussions. Informational signals cause people to keep information to themselves when it disagrees with information from others, especially leaders. Social pressures cause people to keep information to themselves to avoid punishment from leaders who are denied.

These influences lead to four problems, the authors write: Instead of correcting the errors of their members, groups actually expand those errors; cascade effects (联级效应)take over when the group follows whomever spoke first or loudest; groups become more extreme in their ideas, as the internal discussions strengthen their predisposed(预先有倾向的)thoughts; and groups focus on shared information instead of unshared information.

Having laid out the core problems, the authors offer solutions. They begin with a list of methods aimed at handling the four core problems, such as:

Leaders have to keep quiet and convince group members that they sincerely want to hear all ideas. Group success should be rewarded. Group members must understand that if the group is right, everyone benefits; this will encourage them to ensure that they find the right answer instead of pushing their own ideas.

Group members should be assigned specific roles, thus ensuring that everyone contributes.

Either individuals or assigned teams should be tasked with acting as devil’s advocates (唱反调的人).

Groups also fail, the author writes, because they don’t distinguish between the early rounds of discussions, in which all ideas must be allowed on the table, and the final rounds of discussions, in which groups must be tight and analytical as they seek the accurate solution. Successful groups

will deliberately separate the two processes.

In another approach, the authors demonstrate that the wisdom of crowds will often lead to the

right answer if a majority of crowd members know their material. Decision-makers often prefer to rely on one single expert, but “chasing the expert” significantly reduces the probability of getting the decision right.

Wiser is a quick, engaging and thoughtful read that convincingly argues that, with a few simple steps and open-minded leadership, group discussions can, indeed, lead to wiser decisions.

63. The passage is mainly written to .

A. make an advertisement for a new book

B. introduce the main points of a new book

C. prove that two heads are better than one

D. show how to make groupthink more effective

64. According to the passage, groups sometimes make bad decisions because some members .

A. are critical of others

B. are punished by the leader

C. disagree with the leader

D. do not share different ideas

65. Which of the following can help improve the effectiveness of groupthink?

A. An expert helps to make the final decision.

B. Team success is advocated with positive measures.

C. No one is allowed to put forward their disagreement.

D. Leaders don’t expr ess their own opinions in the process.

66. What can be inferred from the passage?

A. Wiser may be welcomed by decision-makers.

B. Wiser can change decision-makers’ attitude towards work.

C. The more people in the group, the better decision will be made.

D. The final rounds of discussions are the most important in decision-making. Section C Directions: Read the following passage. Fill in each blank with a proper sentence given in the box. Each sentence can be used only once. Note that there are two more sentences than you need.

Tutoring a New Normal

It’s not piano lessons or dance lessons. Nowadays, the biggest extra-curricular activity in the West is going to a tutor. “I spend about 800 Canadian dollars a month on tutors. It’s costly,” says Pet, a mother in Canada. H owever, she adds, “after finding out half my daughter’s class had tutors, I felt like my child was going to fall behind because everyone else seemed to be ahead.”

Shelley, a mother of three, also has tutors constantly coming in and out of her home. “When I used to sit down with my children, it was hard to get them focused. I was always shouting. When I got a tutor once a week, they became focused for one entire hour and could get most of their homework done.”

Tutoring isn’t simply a private school phenomeno n. 67________ In Canada alone, seven percent of high school students reported using a tutor in 2010. That increased to 15 percent last year. Overall, parents hire tutors because they are worried schools are not meeting their expectations, but there is also a cultural shift. 68 ________As a large number of Asians emigrated to the West over the recent years, their attitudes towards education have had an impact.

69________ “A lot of parents just don’t have time to help their children with homework,”

says Julie Diamond, president of an American tutoring company. “Others couldn’t help their children after Grade 3.”

There has been a shift in the attitudes, too. “Children used to get bullied(欺侮)for having a tutor,” Diamond says. “Now it’s becoming the norm to have one.”

________One parent feels surprised that so many of her child’s classmates have tutors. “For the amount we pay in tuition, they should have as much extra help as they need,” she says. Still, she’s now thinking of getting a tutor. Why? Her daughter has actually asked for one.

IV. Summary Writing

Directions: Read the following passage. Summarize the main idea and the main point(s) of the passage in no more than 60 words. Use your own words as far as possible.

Gene Therapy

“We used to think that our fate was in our stars, but now we know that, in large measure, our fate is in our genes,” said James Watson. Watson is a molecular (分子的)biologist and co-discoverer of DNA structure. Why? Scientists are seeing that gene therapy is revolutionizing the treatment of disease.

In gene therapy, healthy genes are introduced into defective(有缺陷的)cells to prevent or cure disease. While much of the research is in the beginning stages, some successes point to the real benefit of the therapy. In Italy, doctors have recently treated one genetic disease with gene therapy. This disease most often begins to destroy the brain when children are between 1 and 2, stopping them from walking and talking. By inserting normal, healthy genetic material into a vims and then infecting the patients, scientists seem to be able to cure the disease. Although the children given the therapy still need follow-up treatments, they now lead a relatively normal life.

Gene therapy has also been used to help older patients. These people suffer from a disease that causes slow movement and uncontrollable shaking because part of the brain dies. Those treated with gene therapy showed a 23.1 percent improvement when tested six months later.

Gene therapy appears to be a more positive alternative to surgery or medicine and is an exciting new approach that is just making the news. Researchers hope that in the coming years, every genetic disease will have gene therapy as its treatment. But more research is needed to assure its safety.
