Amazing natural landscapes

Volcanoes and Coastal Cliffs in Hawaii

With their volcanoes, valleys, waterfalls and towering coastal cliffs, the islands of Hawaii have some of the most spectacularly beautiful scenery on earth.

When to visit: October and November, the start of the dry season, are the best months to visit Nepal.

summer. If you want to avoid the tourist crowds, travel in June or September. Impressive Landscapes of New Zealand

Derek Rabelo is not the only surfer to conquer Hawaii’s famous Pipeline big-wave break, but while all others use their sight to do it, this young professional surfer must rely only on his other senses. That’s because he is completely blind.

When Derek was born about 24 years ago, he got his name from Derek Ho, the first Hawaiian surfing world champion. A surfing enthusiast himself, Emeslo Rabelo dreamed that his son would share the talent of his uncle, a professional surfer. Unfortunately, Derek was born completely blind, but this didn’t stop his family from believing that he could do anything he wanted, even if that meant becoming a surfer.

At age 2, Derek received a body board and the beaches of Guarapari, Brazil, became his backyard. He was always comfortable in the water and surfing was in his blood, but he didn’t actually try riding a wave until he turned 17, when his father

bought him a surfboard. His father taught him the basics and encouraged him to keep practising, but after successfully standing up on the surfboard, Derek knew he needed to become much better if he was going to achieve E meslo’s dream and become a professional surfer. So he joined the Praia do Moroo surf school, where he studied under coach Fabio Maru.

Standing up on a surfboard and conquering small waves is one thing, while gathering the courage to take on Hawaii’s board-breaking Pipeline is another. But that was exactly what Derek Rabelo set out to do just months after learning how to surf. Everyone told him it was too dangerous, but he felt he could do it. And he did, earning the praise of famous professional surfers like Kelly Slater and Mick Fanning. Now 24, Rabelo has been surfing the Pipeline every winter since.

4.What makes Dereck Rabelo special as a professional surfer?

A.He is disabled. B.He is talented.

C.He is fortunate. D.He is hard-working.

5.Who is Derek Ho?

A.Derek Rabelo’s uncle.B.Derek Rabelo’s father.

C.A surf school coach. D.A professional surf trainer. 6.What does Paragraph 3 mainly tell us about Derek Rabelo?

A.His difficulties in surfing. B.His achievements in surfing. C.His dream to be a professional surfer. D.His early life to be a professional surfer.

7.What words can best describe Derek according to the last paragraph? A.Skillful and proud. B.Brave and confident. C.Considerate and reliable. D.Careful and strong-willed.

With so many people in the world telling us we can’t succeed, we need to hear people telling us we can. I remember my high school English teacher telling me not to appl y to Cornell University because they wouldn’t accept me and even if they did I wouldn’t be able to do the work. I almost didn’t apply but a few days later I saw Ivan

Foldfarb, a former teacher, in the hallway and asked him about Cornell. He said, “If you g et in, then you go. You can do it.” His words made all the difference. I applied and was accepted.

Too often we think it’s our role to inject (注入))a dose(一次剂量)of “reality” into someone’s life. We think we must point out how bad the economy is and how horrible the job market is and how the sky is falling.

I say there are enough pessimists and “realists” in the world. The world needs more optimists, encouragers, and inspirers. The world needs more people to speak into the hearts of others and say “I believe in you.” “If you have the desire then you also have the power to make it happen.” “Even if you fail, it will lead to something even better.”

When it comes to encouragement I know that every one of us loves working for and with people who bring out the best in us. We love being around people who uplift us and make us feel great.

And while we’ll always remember the negative people who told us we couldn’t accomplish something, we will always cherish and hold a special place in our heart for those who encouraged us.

Today I want to encourage you to be an encourager. Today decide to be that person who instills a positive belief in someone who for that needs to hear your encouraging words. Encourage someone who is feeling down. Fuel your team with your positive energy. Share encouragement. It matters and we all need it.

8.Why did the author’s English teacher tell him not to apply to Cornell University? A.Because the author had no talent.

B.Because the author was a bad student.

C.Because the teacher thought little of the author.

D.Because the teacher didn’t want the author to attend university.

9.What can we infer from Paragraph 3?

A.The world is lack of “reality”.

B.The economy is becoming worse and worse.

C.We have to face a negative world every day.

D.We take it for granted that we should show “reality”.

10.What does the underlined word “uplift” i n Paragraph 4 mean?

A.to increase something.

B.to raise something to a higher position.

C.to give hope or encouragement to somebody.

D.to make somebody unhappy or disappointed.

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

A.Be an encourager. B.Always be optimistic.

C.Failure is the mother of success. D.Get away from negative people.

D

At $29.95 each, not like the expensive GPS systems, or with TrackR Pack purchase deals, you can’t afford not to have one!

The affordable TrackR even comes with a double-sided adhesive (黏合剂) so you can stick it to your laptop or under your bike seat. Track down and punish the thieves who steal your expensive things!

The convenience and the ability to find actually any object means that the TrackR is one of the most useful articles that you’ll find for any price. However, the best thing it can give is peace of mind, and it doesn’t get any better than that. 12.What is Paragraph 2 mainly about?
