Here are some of the world’s most impressive subways.

The Tokyo Metro and Toei Lines Features: The Tokyo Metro and Toei lines that compose Tokyo’s massive subway system carry almost 8 million people each day, making it the busiest system in the world. The system is famous for its oshiya--- literally, “pusher”--- who shove passengers into crowded subway cars so the doors can close. And you think your commute is hell.

The Moscow Metro Features: The Moscow Metro has some of the most beautiful stations in the world. The best of them were built during the Stalinist era and feature chandeliers(枝形吊灯), marble moldings and elaborate murals. With more than 7 million riders a day, keeping all that marble clean has got to be a burden.

The Hong Kong Metro Features: The Hong Kong MTR has the distinction of being one of the few subway systems in the world that actually turns a profit. It’s privately owned and uses real estate development along its tracks to increase income and ridership. It also introduced “Octopus cards” that allow people to not only pay their fares electronically, but buy stuff at convenience stores, supermarkets, restaurants and even parking meters. It’s estimated that 95 % of all adults in Hong Kong own an Octopus card.

Shanghai Metro Features: Shanghai is the third city in China to build a metro system, and it has become the country’s largest in the 12 years since it opened. Shanghai Metro has 142 miles of track and plans to add another 180 miles within five years. By that point, it would be three times larger than Chi cago “L”. The system carries about 2.18 million people a day.

The London Metro Features: Londoners call their subway the Underground, even though 55 percent of it lies above ground.No matter when you’ve got the oldest mass-transit system in the world, you can call it anything you like. Trains started in1863 and they’ve been running ever since. Some 3 million people ride each day, every one of them remembering to “Mind the gap”.

56. Which one can provide the riders some wonderful decorations at the stations?

A. The Tokyo Metro and Toei Lines

B. The Moscow Metro

C. The London Metro

D. The Hong Kong MTR

57.We can learn from the passage that Shanghai Metro ________.

D. is the busiest in the world

58.How many subways carry more than 5 million people per day?

B

While astronauts in space get to do many exciting things,they miss out on ordinary things that we all take for granted—being able to walk on firm ground,hanging out with family and digging into a slice of hot steaming pizza. Though not much can be done about the first two things,there may soon be a solution to the third one, thanks to this cool 3-D pizza printer!

About a year ago,NASA offered $125 ,000 to Anjan Contractor,a 3-D technology expert,to build a device that would allow astronauts to make pizza on demand.The mechanical engineer promised that his invention would produce pies in large quantities that looked,tasted and even smelled like pizza made in common ovens.

Late last year,the engineer presented a video of his first prototype(原型)that begins by creating a single slice of dough(面团)that is cooked and printed at the same time.Then comes the tomato “sauce” —

a mix of tomato powder,oil and water and finally,a protein slice that resembles cheese.While the video doesn’t show the baking process,the inventor says that once the pizza is printed,it can be ready to be consumed in 7 seconds.

While the pie in the video looks delicious enough to attract any pizza lover,Anjan Contractor is far from ready for astronauts.That’s because he still has to find a solution to make the food container in the printer last for 30 years. Though that may sound unrealistic,actually it is not.

Anjan Contractor believes that the only way that is possible is that the water is removed from all the ingredients(配料)and then they are reduced to the powder form.This,as you can imagine,will not be so easy.But,while the printer may not be ready for space,it certainly looks ready enough for people on earth.Hopefully,NASA and Contractor will consider selling it to those not fortunate enough to go to Mars!59.Why does the author mention the things that astronauts in space cannot do?

A.To ask us not to take common things for granted.B.To show they live a difficult life there.C.To show their life is boring in space.D.To introduce the topic of the text.

60.NASA offered $ 125,000 to Anjan Contractor mainly to _______.

A.create some new type of 3-D printer

B.attract more companies to work for NASA

C.help astronauts in space enjoy fresh pizza one day

D.produce pizza in large quantities to earn great profits

61.The biggest challenge that Anjan Contractor is faced with now is probably that _______.

A.he has no money left to go on with his research

B.the pizza doesn’t seem appetizing to pizza lovers

C.he has no way to make pizza that can last for thirty years

D.he cannot make the food container last for decades

62.What’s the best title of the passage?

A.NASA is trying its best to help astronauts eat better

B.Astronauts may soon be able to enjoy steaming hot pizza

C.NASA is working on making pizza for common people

D.A 3-D pizza printer has been used to make pizza

C

As you are probably aware, the latest job markets news isn’t good: Unemployment is still more than 9 percent, and new job growth has fallen close to zero. That’s bad for the economy, of course. And it may be especially discouraging if you happen to be looking for a job or hoping to change careers right now. But it actually shouldn’t matter to you nearly as much as you think. That’s because job growth numbers don’t matter to job hunters as much as job staff-turnover(人员流动)data. After all, existing jobs open up every day due to promotions, resignations(辞职), and retirements. (Yes, people are retiring even in this economy.)In both good times and bad, staff-turnover creates more openings than economic growth does. Even in June of 2014, when the economy was still booming along, job growth was only 132,000, while staff-turn over was 4.7 million!

And as it turns out, even today—with job growth near zero—over 4 million job hunters are being hired every month.

I don’t mean to imply that overall job growth doesn’t have an impact on one’s ability to land a job. It’s true that if total employment were higher, it would mean more jobs for all of us to choose from(and compete for). And it's true that there are currently more people applying for each available job opening, regardless of whether it’s a new one or not.

But what often distinguishes those who land jobs from those who don’t is their ability to stay motivated. They’re willing to do the hard work of identifying their valuable skills; be creative about where and how to look;learn how to present themselves to potential employers; and keep going, even after repeated rejections. The Bureau of Labor Statistics data show that 2.7 million people who wanted and were available for work hadn’t hunted for it within the last four weeks and were no longer even classified as unemployed.

So don’t let the headlines fool you into giving up.Four million people get hired every month in the U.S. You can be one of them.

63.The author tends to believe that high unemployment rate____.

A. takes job opportunities from people

B. prevents many people from changing careers

C. does not mean the U.S. economy is worsening

D. should not stop people from looking for a job 64.What does the author say about overall job growth?

A. It increases people’s confidence in the economy.

B. It doesn’t have much effect on individual job seekers.

C. It gives a ray of hope to the unemployed.

D. It doesn’t mean greater job security for the employed.

65.What is the key to finding a job according to the author?

A. Education

B. Intelligence

C. Experience

D. Persistence 66.What do we learn about The Bureau of Labor Statistics unemployment data?

A.They clearly indicate how healthy the economy is.

B.They don’t include those who have stopped looking for a job.

C.They provide the public with the latest information.

D.They warn of the structural problems in the economy.

D

Every day we are exposed to images, videos, music and news.In this age of visual and aural hyper-stimulation, the medium of radio is making a great comeback.

“We’re at the beginning of a golden age of audio,” said US-based podcaster Alex Blumberg in an article in The Sydney Morning Herald.In the last month alone, 15 percent of US adults listened to a radio podcast (播客).These statistics, released by Edison Research, show the successful evolution of traditional radio broadcasts to the present day’s digital podcast format.The term “podcast” was invented in 2004, but the trend only started gaining mainstream popularity in recent years.With the sharp increase in consumer demand for smartphones and tablets, podcast sales have jumped.

The appeal of the podcast partly lies in its multiplatform delivery and on-demand capabilities (功能).You can listen during those extra minutes of the day when you’re walking to the shops, waiting in a queue or riding the subway.Similar to television shows, podcasts are generally free to download and most offer new content every week.

Donna Jackson, 22, Sydney University media graduate, listens to podcasts two or three times a week, via iTurns.“I listen while I’m wandering around the house doing something else.It makes completing a boring task much more enjoyable… And it’s an easy way of keeping in touch with what’s going on in the rest of the world,” she said, “I mainly listen to BBC podcasts, but recently I’ve also been listening to This American Life and Serial.They h ave a special skill to really draw you in.”

Unlike television and music, the audio format has the potential to create a deep impression on readers.Blumberg says this owes to the podcast’s ability “to create close relationship and emotional connection.” Syd ney University undergraduate Hazel Proust, majoring in social work and arts, agrees.“When you’re listening, it feels as if the voice of the podcast’s storyteller is talking directly to you.It’s comforting, ” said Proust.

It seems the age-old tradition of verbal storytelling is very much alive and well.

67.From the first two paragraphs, we can learn that ________.

A. traditional broadcast has come back

B. Americans love listening to the radio

C. podcasts have become very popular today

D. smartphones sell well because of podcasts

68.The writer mentions Donna Jackson mainly to ________.

A.tell how young people relax themselves B.explain why young people like podcasts C.introduce what programs podcasts are presenting D.show how popular podcasts are presenting 69.Paragraph 5 is mainly about ________.

A.the influence of radios B.the advantage of podcasts

C.readers’ impression on radios D.people’s reaction to the medium

70.What is probably the best title of the passage?

A.Return of Radio B.Opinions of Podcast C.Features of Radio D.Technology of Podcast

五、任务型阅读(10分)

请认真阅读下列短文,并根据短文的内容要点完成文章后的表格列单。

注意:补全填空应符合语法和搭配要求,每空只填一个单词。请将答案写在答题卡上相应题号的横线上。

Plant a Tree in Your Community

Almost everyone loves trees, but do you know that tree can help sick people recover faster?

It’s true. According to the International Society of Arboriculture(树木培植), hospital patients have been shown to recover faster when they are given a view with trees. Also, while trees certainly benefit any landscape, whether lining streets, decorating urban areas, or growing naturally in the forest, they are actually important in our daily lives.

Trees improve the quality of the air around us by absorbing dust and other particles(颗粒物). Their leaves also absorb harmful gases before we have a chance to take them in. They also protect us from the sun, rain, hail , and snow, which can quickly damage unprotected homes. Even better, they give off clean oxygen for us to breathe.

Trees make economic sense. A home surrounded by trees costs less to cool and heat. Neighborhoods with trees are often several degrees cooler in summer than those in similar climates that don’t have trees. In winter, trees can keep houses warmer by blocking strong winds. Also, less water is needed to water grass and gardens in tree-shaded areas where the sun isn’t constantly shining.

Besides that, trees can further improve privacy, block unpleasant views, and increase the value of your home. Unfortunately, these days, construction projects tend to wipe out all the trees in an area before creating new neighborhoods and buildings. That’s why it’s more important than ever to plant a tree in your community.

Check out the National Arbor Day Foundation online at http://www.wendangku.net/doc/72baebb5cec789eb172ded630b1c59eef9c79a0b.html to find out more about planting a tree in your area or how to volunteer in an urban center. You can even donate funds to help the foundation replant trees in New Orleans. Trees also make great gifts. The Arbor Day Foundation can tell you how to plant a tree in someon e’s name as a gift, donate a tree to honor someone, or memorialize a loved one by planting a tree. Make Arbor Day a true holiday this year. Plant a tree!

书面表达:

Dear Mr. Zhang,

We have held a discussion about whether it is good or not for a top student to share a desk with a slower student.

Some are for the idea. As they know, everyone has strengths as well as weaknesses. Although they are not good at lessons, they might do well in other fields like sports or arts. Therefore, they can learn from each other, and they may develop friendship. In addition, top students can help slower ones gain self-confidence by helping them with their lessons, which benefits them all.

However, others don’t hold th e same view. They think some slower students are always making trouble, such as keeping talking in class, breaking school rules, which may lead to them forming bad habits. Besides, slower students often ask top students questions, which has a bad effect on their studies.

In my opinion, I’d like to choose to share a desk with a slower student so that we can learn from each other and make progress together.

Yours,

Li Ping
