A.

If you do not use your arms or your legs for some time, they become weak; when you start using them again, they slowly become strong again. Everybody knows that. Yet many people do not seem to know that memory works in the same way.

When someone says that he has a good memory, he really means that he keeps his memory in practice by using it. When someone else says that his memory is poor, he really means that he does not give it enough chance to become strong.

If a friend says that his arms and legs are weak, we know that it is his own fault (过错). But if he tells us that he has a poor memory, many of us think that his parents are to blame (受责备), and few of us know that it is just his own fault.

Have you ever found that some people can‘t read or write but usually they have better memories? This is because they cannot read or write them down in a little notebook. They have to remember days, names, songs and stories; so their memory is the whole time being exercised.

So if you want to have a good memory, learn from the people: practice remembering.

( )46.The main reason for one‘s poor memory is that _________.

A. his father or mother may have a poor memory

B. he does not use his arms or legs for some time

( )47.If you do not use your arms or legs for some time, ______.

A. you can‘t use them any more

B. they will become stronger

D. they become weak and won‘t become strong until you use them again

( )48.Which of the following in NOT true?

A. Don‘t learn how to read and write if you want to have a better memory.

B. Your memor y, like your arms or legs, becomes weak if you don‘t give it enough

chance for practice.

C. Your memory works in the same way as your arms or legs.

D. A good memory comes from more practice.

( )49.Some people can‘t read or write, but they usually h ave better memories, because ______.

A. they have saved much trouble

B. they have saved much time to remember things

C. they have to use their memories all the time

Barrack Obama, the president of the United States took office on 20 January, 2009. Ten-year-old Barrack Obama was one of the only three black students at his school in Hawaii.

During his race for the highest post in the US, Obama called for a United States of America, rather than a white America or a black America.

New York State has passed the USA‘s first state law banning (禁止)motorists talking on cell phones. The ban will begin on November 1, although drivers caught using cell phones will be given only warnings during the first month.

First-time violators(违法者) will face a $100 fine. A second time call for a $200 fine and every violation after that will cost $500.

At least a dozen localities have established(制定)bans, starting in 1999; and 40 states have had bans proposed but not passed. At least 23 countries, including the Great Britain, Italy, Israel and Japan, ban drivers from using cell phones.

There are about 115 million cell phones in use in the United States and more than 6 million in New York State.

―To think that I‘m not going to use cell phone when at the same time I can still use my laptop, I still can read a paper, I can still change my pants while driving at 65mph. I think there‘s just something wrong,‖ an official said.

Other critics(批评) noted other things like eating, drinking coffee and doing make-up while driving. They suggested that the ban include a broader range of things.

Do you think that there is too much noise in our city? Perhaps you do. If you live near an airport, you will probably feel unhappy because of the noise of jet planes(喷气式飞机). It is said that the noise of planes or trains or trucks can make one deaf if he keeps on hearing it.

Noise is a kind of pollution. However, most people in our city do not seem to mind noise.

They do not know it is harmful to their health. They like to enjoy music when they are doing their work. It is a new danger that music is played through powerful loudspeakers. It can reach 120 decibels(分贝).

It is known that continuous(连续不断的)noise of over 85 decibels can make people deaf. For example, when newspapers and books are being printed, the noise is over 85 decibels, and some of the workers become deaf. Scientists believe that 10% of all the workers in British printing offices have been deafened(使……聋)by the noise. Besides, noise of about

85 decibels can make some people tired and anxious. We all know that too much noise makes

life difficult and unpleasant. It can do great harm to health and stop people from working well. Workers in noisy offices are not so efficient(有效的)as workers in quiet offices. Noise

make people less efficient. Can anything be done to keep down noise?

In Britain, the government has made some laws to keep down noise. It has spent a good deal of money making airports and main roads quieter. In Japan, America and Canada there are such laws, too.

( )61. ________ people in big cities know noise does harm to their health.

Dear Joyce,

I‘m writing to invite you to our English Street. The English Street will be held at the English Corner of our school next Saturday, June 7th. The studnets can buy and sell things there. I am sure it will be an interesting experience for you and you will have a good chance to practise your spoken English because everyone is asked to speak English there. There will be all kinds of goods for sale that day. What‘s more, you may make new friends there. Do hope you can come.

I look forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely

Pansy
