I'm MacDella Cooper. I grew up in Monrovia, Liberia, and my family was pretty well-off. My stepfather worked for the United Nations. Every morning a driver took me to the private school.

Then in 1989, we heard news of the war. The rebels (反叛者) destroyed every village in their path. They saw our big house and caught my stepfather. He never came back. My mother was on vacation in the US with my three little brothers at that time. For months, I was on my own with my elder brothers. They were 15 and 16, hoping our stepfather would return. The rebels took our cars and our house then, so we decided to leave.

It took us almost 4 years to get to America. By this time, my mother had a couple of jobs and was living in New Jersey. I loved the high school there, and then I got a degree in engineering at college and worked in fashion. I had a great life, but I realized I had forgotten where I had come from. In 2004 I started the MacDella Cooper Foundation (基金会). We sent clothes and school materials to more than 500 children at five orphanages (孤儿院) in Liberia! I also ran a scholarship programme. I spent Christmas there and held a party for all the kids. I was lucky during the war. Now I have a duty to give something back.

People with type AB blood may have a higher risk of heart illness compared with those whose blood type is O, according to a new study.

Scientists reviewed two studies that tracked (追踪) nearly 90,000 people for more than 20 years and found that heart illness risk varied with blood type. People with type O blood had the lowest incidence(几率) of heart illness, and compared with them, those with type AB blood were 23% more likely, and people with A were 5% more likely.

“While people cannot change their blood type, our findings may help doctors better understand who is at risk for developing heart illness,”said study author Dr. Lu Qi, assistant professor of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston.

The scientists considered two Harvard studies, one that tracked 62,000 women over 26 years, and one that tracked 27,400 men over 24 years. In all, more than 2,500 people were found with heart illness.

However, further research is needed. In order to reduce (减少) heart disease risk, people should exercise, eat right and keep their weight.

In the United States, 45% of people have type O blood, making it the most common blood type. Only 4% of the U.S. population has type AB blood, while about 40% has type A and about 11% has type B.

( ) 42. Scientists from_______ found that blood type may influence heart illness.

A. Canada

B. America

C. German

D. English

( ) 43. People with ______ blood are the most likely to have heart disease.

A. Type O

B. Type A

C. Type B

D. Type AB

( ) 44. Nearly _______ of people were found with heart illness in the two studies.

A. 3%

B. 4%

C. 6%

D. 9%

( ) 45. People can’t reduce heart disease risk by _______.

A. eating right

B. doing exercise

C. keeping their weight

D. changing their blood type

( ) 46. In America people who have type B blood are_______.

B. as many as people who have type A blood

C. fewer than people who have type AB blood

D. only a small part of the U.S. population

I was very disappointed not to be able to go to the jazz concert last Friday. The advertisement in the paper said that you could buy tickets at the theatre box in Richland Hills any day between 10:00 and 4:00. Since I work from 9:00 to 5:30, the only time I could go to the theatre was during my 45-minute lunch break. Unfortunately, the theatre is on the other side of the town, and the bus service between my office and Richland Hills is not very good. But if you are lucky, you can make the round trip in 45 minutes. Last Monday, I stood at the bus stop for fifteen minutes waiting for the bus. By the time I saw one come around the corner, there was not enough time left to make the trip. So I gave up and went back to the office. The same thing happened on Tuesday, and again the next day. On Thursday, my luck changed. I got on a Bus right away and arrived at the theatre in exactly twenty minutes. When I got there, however, I found a long line of people at the office. I

heard one man say he had been waiting in line for over an hour. Realizing I would not have enough time to wait in line, I caught the next bus and headed back across the town. By Friday I realized my only hope was to make the trip by taxi, it was expensive, but I felt it would be worth it to hear the concert. The trip by taxi only took 10 minutes, but it felt like an hour to me. When I got to the theatre, I was relieved to see that nobody was waiting in line. The reason, however, I quickly discovered, was that they had already sold all the tickets.

( ) 47. The man learned that there would be a concert last Friday ______.

A. from his friends

B. from one of his workmates

C. over the radio

D. from the newspaper

( ) 48. He tried to go to the theatre every day but managed to get there only _______.

A. once

B. twice

C. three times

D. four times ( ) 49. One day the man took__________ to get to the theatre by bus.

A. forty-five minutes

B. fifteen minutes

C. just twenty minutes

D. over an hour

( ) 50. The underlined word "relieved" may best be replaced by "_________".

A. surprised

B. pleased

C. puzzled

D. sorry

( ) 51. The writer mainly shows us his_______.

A. enjoyment of the concert

B. anger for buying the ticket

C. efforts to buy the ticket

D. disappointment at the concert

D

Meeting people from another culture can be difficult. From the beginning, people may send the wrong signal(信号). Or they may pay no attention to signals from another person who is trying to develop a relationship.

Different cultures emphasize(强调)the importance of relationship building to a greater or lesser degree. For example, business in some countries is not possible until there is a relationship of trust. Even with people at work, it is necessary to spend a lot of time on "small talk", usually over a glass of tea, before they do any job. In many European countries -- like the UK or France -- people find it easier to build up a lasting working relationship at restaurants or cafes rather than at the office.

Talk and silence may also be different in some cultures. I once made a speech in Thailand. I had expected my speech to be a success and start a lively discussion; instead there was an uncomfortable silence. The people present just stared at me and smiled. After getting to know their ways better, I realized that they thought I was talking too much. In my own culture, we express meaning mainly through words, but people there sometimes feel too many words are unnecessary.

Even within Northern Europe, cultural differences can cause serious problems. Certainly, English and German cultures share similar values; however, Germans prefer to get down to business more quickly. We think that they are rude. In fact, this is just because one culture starts discussions and makes decisions more quickly.

People from different parts of the world have different values, and sometimes these values are quite against each other. However, if we can understand them better, a multicultural(多种文化的)environment will offer a wonderful chance for us to learn from each other.

( ) 52. In some countries, eating together at restaurants may make it easier for people to__________.

A.develop closer relations B.share the same culture

C.get to know each other D.keep each other company

( ) 53. The author mentions his experience in Thailand to show that__________.

A.the English prefer to make long speeches

B.too many words are of no use

C.people from Thailand are quiet and shy by nature

D.even talk and silence can be culturally different

( ) 54. According to the text, how can people from different cultures understand each other better?

A.By sharing different ways of life. B.By accepting different habits.

C.By recognizing different values. D.By speaking each other' s languages. ( ) 55. What would be the best title for the text?

A.Multicultural Environment. B.Cross-Cultural Differences.

C.How to Understand Each Other. D.How to Build Up a Relationship. ( ) 56. Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage?

A. I talked too much in the speech, which surprised the audience.

B. Within Northern Europe, there are no such things as cultural differences.

C. There is no way to overcome cultural differences.

D. Different cultures have differences in relationship building.
