Google, the Internet search-engine company, has announced it will give more than twenty-five million dollars in money and investments to help the poor. The company says the effort involves using the power of information and technology to help people improve their lives.

Aleem Walji works for http://www.wendangku.net/doc/ab02376d53ea551810a6f524ccbff121dd36c52e.html -- the part of the company that gives money to good causes. He said the company’s first project will help identify where

infectious (传染性的) diseases are developing. In Southeast Asia and Africa, for example, http://www.wendangku.net/doc/ab02376d53ea551810a6f524ccbff121dd36c52e.html will work with partners to strengthen early-warning systems and take action against growing health threats.

http://www.wendangku.net/doc/ab02376d53ea551810a6f524ccbff121dd36c52e.html’s second project will invest in ways to help small and medium-sized businesses grow. Walji says microfinance (小额信贷) is generally small, short-term loans that create few jobs. Instead, he says http://www.wendangku.net/doc/ab02376d53ea551810a6f524ccbff121dd36c52e.html wants to develop ways to bring investors and business owners together to create jobs and improve economic growth.

http://www.wendangku.net/doc/ab02376d53ea551810a6f524ccbff121dd36c52e.html will also give money to help two climate-change programs announced earlier this year. One of these programs studies ways to make renewable (再生的) energy less costly than coal-based energy. The other is examining the efforts being made to increase the use of electric cars.

The creators of Google have promised to give http://www.wendangku.net/doc/ab02376d53ea551810a6f524ccbff121dd36c52e.html about one percent of company profits and one percent of its total stock value every year. Aleem Walji says this amount may increase in the future.

A) help poor people

C) expand its own business

D) increase the power of information

37. According to Aleem Walji, the company’s first project is to ________.

A) set up a new system to warn people of infectious diseases

B) find out where infectious diseases develop

C) identify the causes of infectious diseases

D) cure patients of infectious diseases

38. What kind of businesses will benefit from http://www.wendangku.net/doc/ab02376d53ea551810a6f524ccbff121dd36c52e.html’s second project?

A) large enterprises

40. From the last paragraph we learn that the investments by http://www.wendangku.net/doc/ab02376d53ea551810a6f524ccbff121dd36c52e.html come from ________.

A) Google’s profits and stock value

B) some international IT companies

C) the company’s own interests

D) local commercial banks

Task 2

Directions: This task is the same as Task 1. The 5 questions or unfinished statements are numbered 41 to 45.

Your boss holds your future prospects in his hands. Some bosses are hard to get along with. Some have excellent qualifications but no idea when it comes to dealing with people. Of course, not all bosses are like that.

The relationship you have with your boss can be a major factor in determining your rise up the career ladder. Your boss is not only your leader, he is also the person best equipped to help you do the job you are paid to do. He can inform you of company direction that may affect your professional development.

Your boss also needs you to perform at your best in order to accomplish his objectives. He needs your feedback in order to provide realistic and useful reports to upper management. But how does this help you establish a meaningful working relationship with your boss?

The key is communication. Learn and understand his goals and priorities (优先的事). Observe and understand your boss’s work style. If he has not been clear with his expectations, ask! Likewise, ask for feedback and accept criticism gracefully. And if he understands that you do not view your job as just something to fill the hours between 9 and 5, he may be more likely to help you.

In short, getting along with your boss requires getting to know his likes and dislikes and learning to work with his personality and management style.

41. The main idea of the first paragraph is that ________.

A) bosses are hard to deal with

B) bosses have good character

C) bosses determine your career future

D) bosses must have similar personality

42. In the second paragraph, “rise up the career ladder”(Line 2) means ________.

A) going to work abroad

B) changing jobs frequently

C) being promoted in position

D) pursuing an advanced degree

43. In order to achieve his objectives, your boss expects that you will ________.

A) do your best in your work

B) show your management skills

C) get along with your colleagues

D) write reports to upper management

44. The most important factor for establishing a good working relationship with the boss is ________.

A) high expectations

B) quick feedback

C) frequent criticism

D) effective communication

45. The best title for the passage might be ________.

A) How to Take Care Of Your Boss.

B) How to Get Along with Your Boss

C) How to Accept Your Boss’s Criticism

D) How to Accomplish Your Boss’s Objective

During the past two semesters I have concentrated on developing my electronic publishing and business communication skills. I am confident that I Can improve the ways in which Pascal Business Systems provides support for field marketing representatives. This would include designing and maintaining an online catalog which could be coordinated with current inventories(库存清单).

Sincerely,

Lourdes Santiago
