  The Writing's on the Wall?

  Is it art or is it just vandalism (野蛮行为)? Well, it's still a crime, but graffiti (涂鸦) has changed since the days of spraying your name on a wall to mark your territory. Street art has become much more sophisticated since a 17-year-old called Demetrius started spraying his "tag" , TAKI 183, all over the New York underground in 1971, and hip - hop culture was born. Hip-hop is a mixture of art, music and dancing, poetry, language and fashion. It came from young inner-city

  people who fell left out by their richer classmates and who were desperate to express themselves in any way they could.

  An experiment to control the spread of graffiti in Rochdale, Creater Manchester, has been sosuccessful that plans have been made by local street artists for an international convention in June. "We're planning to get people together from different countries like France and Cermany for a week, " says Liam, one of the organizers. The scheme started in 2000, and has attracted people of all age groups and both sexes. " We all share a commen interest and get on really well with each other. " The first site to be chosen was a subway. " Before we began, people were afraid to use the subway. We had it cleaned up and now, with all the artists hanging out down there, people are using it again. People can relate to graffiti much more now. " By providing places to display their talents legally, there has been a fall in the amount of "tagging" on people's private property.

  Street artists Temper developed his drawing skills at a young age. In art classes at school he was really frustrated because the Art teacher didn't spend time with him. They thought he was already very good at art and so spend more time with other students. So, at 12 years old, Temper started painting with all these guys he'd hooked up with who were about 22 years old. He looked up to them and loved what they were doing on the streets of Wolvehampicn, England. "The whole hip -hop scene was built up of different things and I did a bit of everything. But it was always the graffiti I was best at. " he says.

  Waste Not, Want Not

  I Bob and Clara Darlington, who own and run a farm in the North of England, have alwayslooked for new ways of making money out of the produce they grow. Their success began when they established a shop on their farm, so that people could come and buy fresh vegetables directly from them.

  2 The business was an immediate success, and soon scored top marks in a competition set up by the Farm Retail Association to find the best farm shop in the country. The Association's inspectors found the Darlingtons' shop offered excellent service and value for money as well as quality fruit and vegetable.

  3 Clara Darlington is a trained chef and, in addition to a range of home-grown foods and other local produce, she began offering a variety of prepared meals which she had made herself in the farmhouse kitchen. A small cafe alongside the farm shop was soon added, with everything that visitors could taste on the menu also being for sale in the shop.

  4 Clara admits that starting the business was expensive, and she has worked very hard, but maintains that if the product is good, the public recognize this and buy it. "I aim to offer the highest quality to our customers, whether they come in for a loaf of bread, or take a whole dinner-party menu. I take it as a compliment(恭维) if people take home one of my dishes to serve to their family and friends and get away with pretending they made it themselves. "

  5 So it was that the couple realized that they had a surplus of misshapen or damaged vegetables grown on the farm which were unsuitable for selling in the shop. Clara, not wishing to see them get thrown away, decided to turn them into soup.

  6 The soup met with the immediate approval of customers to the shop and Clara now produces ten different varieties. She spent much of the summer traveling up and down to London by rail, doing presentations of the soups. As a result, they are now served in first-class railway restaurant cars belonging to three companies as well as being stocked by a number of high-class London stores.

  The Iceman

  On a September day in 1991, two Germans were climbing the mountains between Austria and Italy. High up on a mountain pass, they found the body of a man lying on the ice. At that height(10,499 feet, or 3,200 meters), the ice is usually permanent, but 1991 had been an especially warm year. The mountain ice had melted more than usual and so the body had come to the surface.

  It was lying face downward. The skeleton(骨架) was in perfect condition, except for a wound in the head. There was still skin on the bones and the remains of some clothes. The hands were still holding the wooden handle of an ax and on the feet there were very simple leather and cloth boots. Nearby was a pair of gloves made of tree bark(树皮) and a holder for arrows.

  Who was this man? How and when had he died? Everybody had a different answer to these questions. Some people thought that it was from this century , perhaps the body of a soldier who died in World War I , since several soldiers had already been found in the area. A Swiss woman believed it might be her father, who had died in those mountains twenty years before and whose body had never been found. The scientists who rushed to look at the body thought it was probably much older, maybe even a thousand years old.

  With modern dating techniques, the scientists soon learned that the Iceman was about 5,300 years old. Bom in about 3300 B.C., he lived during the Bronze Age in Europe. At first scientists thought he was probably a hunter who had died from an accident in the high mountains. More recent evidence, however, tells a different story. A new kind of X - ray shows an arrowhead still stuck in his shoulder. It left only a tiny hole in his skin, but it caused internal damage and bleeding. He almost certainly died from this wound, and not from the wound on the back of his head. This means that he was probably in some kind of a battle. It may have been part of a larger war, or he may have been fighting bandits. He may even have been a bandit himself.

  By studying his clothes and tools, scientists have already learned a great deal from the Iceman about the times he lived in. we may never know the full story of how he died, but he has give us important clues to the history of those distant times.

  31. The body of the Iceman was found in the mountains mainly because __________.

  A. he was lying on the ice

  B. he was just on a mountain pass

  C. two Germans were climbing the mountains

  D. the melted ice made him visible

  B. The Iceman was struck dead from behind.

  C. The Iceman was killed while working.

  D. The Iceman could have died from the wound in the head.

  A. he was a soldier in World War I

  B. he was a Swiss woman's long-lost father

  C. he came from Italy

  D. he was born about a thousand years ago

  A. had got a wound on the back of his head

  B. had a tiny hole in his skin causing his death

  The Best Way to Reduce Your Weight

  You hear this:"No wonder you are fat. All you ever do is eat. " You feel sad:"l skip my breakfast and supper. I run every morning and evening. What else can I do?" Basically you can do nothing. Your genes, not your life habits, determine your weight and your body constantly tries to maintain it.

  Albert Stunkard of the University of Pennsylvania found from experiments that, "80 percent of the children of two obese (肥胖的) parents become obese,as compared with no more than 14 percent of the offspring of two parents of normal weight. "

  How can obese people become normal or even thin through dieting? Well,dieting can be effective, but the health costs are tremendous. Jules Hirsch, a research physician at Rockefeller University, did a study of eight fat people. They were given a liquid formula providing 600 calories a day.After more than 10 weeks,the subjects lost 45ka on average. But after leaving the hospital,they all regained weight. The results were surprising: by metabolic (新陈代谢的) measurement, fat people who lost large amounts of weight seemed like they were starving. They had psychiatric problems. They dreamed of food or breaking their diet. They were anxious and depressed; some were suicidal. They hid food in their rooms. Researchers wam that it is possible that weight reduction doesn't result In normal weight,but in an abnormal state resembling that of starved non - obese people.

  Thin people, however, suffer from the opposite: They have to make a great effort to gain weight. Ethan Sims, of the University of Vermont, got prisoners to volunteer to gain weight. In four to six months,they ate as much as they could. They succeeded in increasing their weight by 20 t0 25 percent. But months after the study ended they were back to normal weight and stayed there.

  This did not mean that people are completely without "hope in controlling their weight. It means that those who tend to be fat will have to constantly battle their genetic inheritance if they want to significantly lower their weight. The findings also provide evidence for something scientists thought was true - each person has a comfortable weight range. The range might be as much as 9kg. Someone might weigh 60-69kg without too much effort. But going above or below the natural weight range is difficult. The body resists by feeling hungry or full and changing the metabolism to pusb the weight back to the range it seeks.

  A. Our eating habit

  A. attempted suicide

  B. were back to normal weight

  C. went mad

  D. followed the advice of Hirsch's

  39. In Ethan Sims study, the subjects were asked to__________.

  A. stay in prison

  Food for Learning

  In Eritrea, a small country in northeast Africa, approximately 80 percent of the population is illiterate. That percentage is even higher in woman. As in many developing countries, many Eritreans have traditional ideas about the role of women. They believe that women should stay home and take care of the family and should not get an education or look for a job.

  These beliefs are one of the factors that prevent Eritriea and other developing countries from improving their economic situation. Experience in many developing countnes has shown that educated women have fewer children and have more opportunities for improving their lives and the lives of their families. In Eritrea, in fact, there is great need for improvement. It is one of the poorest countries in the world. For many Eritrean families, getting enough food is a daily problem.

  To deal with these problems, the Eritrean government together with the World Food Program,has a new program that offers food as a reward for leaming. In primary schools, all the children receive food packages to take home to their families. However, with the new program, the girls receive more food than the boys. This way, parents are encouraged to send their daughter to school rather than keeping them at home.

  Another govemment program that aims to educate women is Food for Training. Managed by the National Union of Eritrean Women, this program offer food rewards (also from World Food Organiza tion) to women and elder girls who are willing to join the program. Because of the war with Ethiopia, many women are bringing up their families on their own. They often live in refugee camps, with no land of their own and no way to earn money. Most of these women are illiterate and have no skills to find a job. They spend most of their day looking for food and preparing it for their families.

  The Food for Training program helps the tennagers and women change their lives. If they agree to join the program, they receive a large package of food each month. In return, the women are required to attend free literate classes for two hours every day. When Food for Training classes in two regions of Eritrea, 5000 girls and women joined in the first two months. It is especially popular with teenage girls, aged fourteen to sixteen, who have never had a chance to go to school before.

  The organizers of Food for Traing also plans to offer other kinds of courses for women, using the same system of food rewards. In these courses, they will teach women job skills and crafts such as basket weaving. These women will not only learn to read and write. They will become aware of what is going on in their country.

  A. are rejected by younger generation

  B. help improve the economy

  C. hinder economic development '

  D. have little impact on economic development

  I Know Just How You Feel

  Do you feel sad? Happy? Angry? You may think that the way you show these emotions is unique. Well, think again. Even the expression of the most personal feelings can be classified, according to Mind Readingame, a DVD displaying every possible human emotion. It demonstrates 412 distinct ways in which we feel the first visual distionary of the human heart.

  Attempts to classify expressions began in the mid-1800s, when Darwin divided the emtions into six types-anger, fear, sadness, disgust, surprise and enjoyment. _________(46) Every other feeling was thought to derive from Darwin's small group. More complex expressions of emotions were probably learned and therefore more specific to each culture. But now it is believed that many more facial expressions are shared worldwide. _________(47) The Mind Reading DVD is a systematic visual record of these expressions.

  The project was conceived by a Cambridge professor as an aid for people with autism (孤独症), who have difficulty both reading and expressing emotions. But it quickly became apparent that it had broader uses. Actors and teachers, for example, need to understand a wide range of expressions. The professor and his research team first had to define an "emotion" _________(48) Using this definition, 1,512 emotion terms were identified and discussed. This list was eventually reduced to 412, from"afraid" to "wanting".

  Once these emotions were defined and classified, a DVD seemed the clearest and most efficient way to display them. In Mind Reading, each expression is acted out by six different actors in three seconds. _________(49) The explanation for this is simple: we may find it difficult to describe emotions using words, but we instantly recognise one when we see it on someone's face. " It was really clear when the actors had got it right," says Cathy Collis, who directed the DVD." Although they were given some direstion," says Ms Collis, " the actors were not told which facial muscles they should move. " _________(50) For example, when someone feel contempt, you can't say for certain that their eyebrows always go down.

  Someone who has tried to establish such rules is the American, Professor Paul Ekman, who has built a database of how the face moves for every emotion. The face can make 43 distinct muscle movements called " action units". These can be combined into more than 10, 000 visible facial shapes. Ekmen has written out a pattern of facial muscular movements to represent each emotion.

  A. He said that this expression of feeling is universal and recognizable by anyone from any culture .

  B. Any other method of showing the 412 emotions whould have been far less effective.

  C. Research has also been done to find out which area of brain read the emotional expressions.

  D. These particular muscles are difficult to control, and few people can do it.

  E. They decided that it was a mental state that could be preceded by "I feel" "he looks" or"she sounds".

  F. We thought of trying to describe each emotion, but it whould have been almost impossible to make clear rules of this.



  Racial Prejudice

  In some countries where racial prejucide is acute, violence has been taken for granted as a means of solving differences; and this is not even questioned. There are countries _________(51) the white man imposes his rude by brute (粗暴) force; there are countries where the black man protests by _(52) fire to cities and by looting and pillaging(抢夺). Important people on both sides, who would in other respects appear to be reasonable men, get up and calmly argue in_________(53) of violence as if it were a legitimate (合法的) solution, _________(54) any other. What is really frightening, what really _________(55) you with despair, is the realization that when it comes to the crunch(关键时刻), we have made no actual _________(56) at all. We may wear collars and ties instead of war-paint, but our insticts remain basically unchanged. The whole of the recorded _________(57) of the human race, that tedious documentation of violence, has taught us absolutely nothing. We have still not learnt that_________(58) never solves a problem but makes it more acute. The sheer horror, the bloodshed and the suffering _________(59) nothing. No solution ever comes to _________(60) the moming after when we dismally(阴郁地) contemplate the smoking ruins and wonder what hit us.

  The truly reasonable men who _________(61) where the solutions lie are finding it harder and harder to get a hearing. They are despised, mistrusted and even persecuted _________(62) their own kind because they advocate such apparently outrageous things as low enforcement. If half the energy that goes into _________(63) acts were put to good use, if our efforts were directed at_________(64) up the slums and ghettos (贫民窟), at improving living-standards and providing education and employment for all, we would not have gone a long way to _________(65) at a solution.

  17.B [解析]第二段中间一句"The scheme started in 2000,and has attracted people of all age groups and both sexes."可以看出,这一计划是针对所有年龄的人们,而不只是青少年,所以该判断错误。

  18.C[解析]本题给出的信息文中没有提及。作者在第二段虽然提到"Before we began,people were afraid to use the subway."在有组织的涂鸦艺术家们集中在地铁涂鸦之前,人们害怕搭乘地铁,但是文中没有说到人们是否喜欢乘坐地铁。


  20.A [解析]本题给出的信息正确。从第三段第四句"at 12 years old,Temper started painting with all these guys he'd hooked up with who were about 22 years old."可知泰普12岁时和其他艺术家一起开始绘画,他们大约比他大十岁。

  21.B [解析]文中最后一段提到作为一名涂鸦艺术家,泰普敬佩并喜欢上了英国Wolvehampicn的艺术家们。并没有说他现在是涂鸦俱乐部的负责人。

  22.A [解析]文中最后一段提到"The whole hip - hop scene was built up of different things and I did a bit of everything."他参与了有关嘻哈(文化)的各种活动,因此,该判断正确。



  它是艺术还是破坏?是的,它仍然是一种犯罪行为,然而,自人们把自己的名字喷涂在墙壁上以标记自己的领地以来,涂鸦已经发生了变化。1971年,17岁的年轻人狄米特律斯开始在纽约地铁喷涂他的"标签"TAKI 183,街头艺术从此变得更加复杂,嘻哈文化由此应运而生。嘻哈音乐是一种音乐、舞蹈、诗歌、语言和时尚混合的艺术。它诞生于年轻的城市青年人中,他们感受到富裕同学的冷落,想要不顾一切地以任何可以使用的任何方式表达自己的想法。




  23.C [解析]该段讲到他们因为参加一场比赛,从而使出售农产品成为农场的另一个主业。所以题目应该是C--替代耕种的另外一种方法。


  25.E [解析]选择高标准、持续的投资是非常必要的。农场为顾客提供最优质的农产品。

  26.B [解析]夫妇俩把那些不适合在商店出售的畸形的或是被弄坏的剩余蔬菜做成蔬菜汤,因此该段题目应该是确保没有浪费。

  27.A[解析]文章第一段提到他们在农场建了一个商店,"people could come and buy fresh vegetables directly from them."他们可以直接购买新鲜蔬菜了。

  28.F [解析]第二段的第一句"_in addition to a range of home - grown foods and other local produce,she began offering a variety of prepared meals"提供了答案。

  29.B [解析]第三段第一句"...not wishing to see them get thrown away,decided to turn them into soup."提供了答案。

  30.C [解析]最后一段第二句说到她夏天的大部分时间乘坐火车沿着伦敦来回旅行,以展示自己的蔬菜汤,所以应该选C,销售尽量多的产品。











  31.D[解析]本题是细节考查题。冰人尸体被发现的原因在文章的第一段提到"The mountain ice had melted more than usual and so the body had come to the surface."由止匕知道是融化的冰将他暴露了出来,因此D正确。

  32..D[解析]原题是从第二段可以做出什么样的推断?本段开头提到"It was lying face downward. The skeleton(骨架)was in perfect condition,except for a wound in the head."(它面朝下,除了头部有伤外,骨架状况很好),就此推断,冰人可能死于头部伤口,因此答案是D。


  34.D [解析]本题是细节考查题。原题是科学家对冰人的推论是什么。原文在第四段。选项A"头后部有伤口"是事实而非推论;选项B"皮肤上的小孔导致他的死亡"不符合事实;选项C"他的肩膀被箭头刺伤"是事实而非推论;选项D"有可能参与过战斗"是推论;因此选D。










  36.D [解析]第一段的后面一句话提到"Your genes,not your life habits,determine your weight…"由此可知是你的基因而非生活习惯决定你的体重。


  38.B [解析]通过第三段"But after leaving the hospital,they all regained weight."可以看出他们的体重最终又恢复到原来的状态,所以选B。

  39.B [解析]文章第四段讲研究人员如何让瘦人增加体重。Ethan Sims从犯人中招募志愿者,让他们增加体重的办法就是让他们吃尽可能多的食物。

  40.C [解析]文章最后一段,科学家们的发现证明了他们认为是正确的想法,即"each person has a comfortable weight range"(体重幅度),这个幅度可能是9公斤,但并非每个人都是同样的幅度,所以可以否定干扰项B。




  宾夕法尼亚大学的Albert Stunkard从实验中发现并指出:"如果父母肥胖,那他们的孩子有80%也将肥胖,相比之下,如果父母的体重正常,他们的子女体重超标的可能性不超过14%。"

  那么,肥胖者如何才能通过节食使体重恢复正常甚至变瘦呢?自然,节食是有效的,但是,为此付出的健康代价却是巨大的。洛克菲勒大学的医学研究员Jules Hirsch曾经做过一项针对8名肥胖者的实验。给予他们一种流食配方,每天给他们提供600卡的能量。十多周后,被调查对象平均减重45公斤。但是在他们离开医院以后,他们的体重又回升了。实验结果令人吃惊:通过干预身体的新陈代谢,减重的肥胖者过着挨饿一般的生活。他们的精神状态不佳,梦想着食物或打破这种饮食规定。他们精神紧张、压抑,有些人甚至有自杀倾向。他们在自己房间里收藏食物。研究人员警告说,体重的减轻有可能不会带来正常的体重,它的结果有可能类似于一个正常体重者挨饿之后的非正常身体状况。

  体重过轻的人则遭受着相反的痛苦:他们得努力增加体重。Vermont大学的Ethan Sims曾经在犯人中选取志愿者做增加体重的实验。在4到6个月里,他们吃下尽可能多的食物。结果,他们的体重都增加了20%到25%。但是实验结束数月之后,他们的体重又回到了正常水平,并且基本保持稳定。




  42.B[解析]问题是厄立特里亚政府给到学校上学的女孩提供更多的食物目的何在?第三段中间说到"…the girls receive more food than the boys. This way,parents are encouraged to send their daughter to school rather than keeping them at home…"显然,政府此举在于改变对妇女的传统观念。

  43.A [解析]问题是在什么情况下妇女可以得到一大包食物。第五段第三句"In retum,the women are required to attend free literate classes."即只要她们参加免费的识字课就可以领到食物,所以选A。

  44.C [解析]问题是新扫盲项目是什么的范例,第三段第一句"To deal with thes prob-lems, the Eritrean govemment together with the World Food Program, has a new program that offers food as a reward for leaming."可见,这一项目是当地政府和国际组织合作的结果。因此,选项C正确。

  45.A[解析]问题是食物换学习项目的结果是什么。文中第五段的第一句"The Food for Training program helps the tennagers and women change their lives."显然,该项目期望改善妇女的生活条件。










  46.A [解析]"He said that this expression of feeling is universal and recognizable by anyone from any culture."他说这种感情的表达普遍存在,可以在任何人和任何文化中找到。上一句列举了六种表情,而this正是指以上的感情的表达。

  47.C [解析]"Research has also been done to find out which area of brain read the emotional expressions."人们做了研究以期发现大脑的哪个区域读取表情。该题考察上下文之间的意义关系。

  48.F [解析]"We thought of trying to describe each emotion, but it whould have been almost impossible to make clear rules of this."我们试图描述每种情感,但要搞清楚其中的规律几乎是不可能的,这就是为什么教授要进行不同表情的研究和界定。

  49.B [解析]"Any other method of showing the 412 emotions whould have been far less effective."要展示412种表情,其他任何的方法远没有它有效。文章接下来给出了理由。

  50.D [解析]"These particular muscles are difficult to control, and few people can do it."这些特殊的肌肉很难控制,少数人才能做到这一点。该句前面讲到面部肌肉的控制,因此,选D。









  51.A[解析]名词country后面可以用in which表示地点,引导限定性定语从句,但不能只用which,如果要用它,应在从句的后面出现in,例如:This is the place in which he grew up/ which he grew up in. where和in which意思相同,其他选项意思不对,因此选A。

  52.D [解析]set fire to是固定短语,意思为点火;catch fire:着火,例如:Dry catches fire easily.干草容易着火,用在文中意思不对。其他选项搭配错误,因此正确答案是D。

  53.D[解析]in favor of是固定搭配,意思:赞同。从上下文判断,只有D最合适,表示"赞成暴力"。

  54.C [解析]any other前面需要一个介词,根据前面的as if从句,可以判断like(像……一样)符合题意。through:通过;as:作为。

  55.A[解析】fill sb. with sth.是固定搭配,意思是"使某人充满……"如:The room was filled with students.房子里坐满了学生。force sb. into doing sth.强迫某人做某事。

  56.A[解析]make和progress搭配表示"取得进步、进展";用在此处意思正确。make decision:做决定;make sense:合理的,明智的,例如:It makes sense to save money while you can.趁着自己能办到时积攒些钱是明智的。

  57.B[解析]从上下文判断,此处应该是指人类有记录以来的历史,因此选B。range:范围,例如:an area with a wide range of temperature温度变化幅度很多的地区。system:系统。

  58.B [解析]从前面一句看出,violence符合题意,即我们始终认识到暴力从来就没有解决过任何问题,却只会使问题更加尖锐。argument:争论;research:研究。

  59.C[解析]deal和with搭配,是处理、对待的意思。want:想要;根据上下文C意思合适,mean nothing:毫无意义。

  60.A [解析]整句意思是到早晨还是没有任何解决办法。come to light:找到,出现;come to life:使苏醒过来;使有活力;come to an end:结束;come to decision:得出结论,所以正确答案是A。

  61.D[解析]空格后紧跟一个where引导的宾语从句,四个选项中know意思符合题意,即知道解决问题的方法,其他几个不符合题意。suggest sb.to do sth.:建议;consider as:认为,视为;demand:要求。

  62.A[解析]前面的are despised,mistrusted and even persecuted属被动语态,所以后面应该用by引出施加动作的主体,所以A正确。

  63.C[解析]lawful:合法的;symboilic:象征性的,例如:The flag is symbolic of the fignting of modern womanhood.这面旗帜象征着现代妇女的战斗精神。final:最后的;violent:激烈的,violent acts:暴力的行为。

  64.D [解析]clean up是固定搭配,清除,铲除;句意为消除贫民区,符合题意。look up:抬头看:get up:起床;take up sth.:着手处理,开始从事,例如:He has taken up a job as a teacher.他开始当教师了。

  65.D[解析]根据本句意思,应该是不久我们就能想出解决问题的方法,arrive at a solution:拿出/想出解决办法。laught at:嘲笑;be stratled at:对……感到吃惊。
