WHAT can help you make a fortune in the future? Graduating from a top university might not be enough.A new study from the University of Essex in Britain has shown that the more friends you have in school, the more money you'll earn later.
The idea that popularity could have a serious influence on one's earning potential shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.The researchers noted that if you want to get ahead in life, social skills and networking are easily as powerful as talent and hard work.
"If a person has lots of friends, it means that he or she has the ability to get along with others in all kinds of different situations," said Xu Yanchun, 17, from Nantou High School in Shenzhen, who totally agreed with the recent finding." Also, friends always help each other.They not only create wider social circles for you but lift your mood when you are occasionally in low spirits," said Xu.She believed that all this helps you “earn a higher salary”.
Maybe that's why some people think the younger generations are in the age of Friendalholism (交友狂症)?A woman even complained that the networking website Facebook's 5,000-friend limit was too low for her large reserve of social contacts.
But what does a friend mean? Should friends be regarded as a form of currency?
" Call me uncool, but I think of a friend as an actual person with whom I have an actual history and whom I enjoy actually seeing.It seems, however, .that this is no longer the definition of ' friend'," said Meghan Daum, who works with The Los Angeles Times in the US.
Daum dislikes the idea that quantity trumps quality in the age of friendaholism.She thought the idea of friendship, at least among the growing population of Internet social networkers, was to get as many of not-really -friends as possible.For example, a friend might be someone you might know personally but who could just as easily be the friend of a fri end of some other Facebook friend you don't actually know.Although she agreed that social ties grease (润滑) the wheels of life, she also warned, "Too bad one thing money can't buy is a real friend."
56.What can friends do in the eyes of Xu Yanchun?
A.They can help you with your schoolwork.
B.They teach you how t o make more money.
C.They introduce their friends to you.
D.They help you to get rid of sadness and cheer up.
57.What will be needed if you are to achieve success according to the researchers?
A.Social skills, friends, good mood and fortune.
B.Social skills, talent, hard work and the facebook.
C.Social skills, networking, potential and fortune.
D.Social skills, networking, talent and hard work.
58.We learn that Meghan Daum's attitude towards friends-is somewhat____.
A.up-to-date B.traditional C.confused D.optimistic
59.What does the word "trumps" in the last paragragh mean?
A.is worse than B.is equal to C.is better than D.is similar to
Should doctors ever lie to benefit their patient–to
speed recovery or to cover the coming of death? In
medicine as in law, government, and other lines of
work, the requirements of honesty often seem dwarfed
(变矮小)by greater needs: the need to protect from
brutal news or to uphold a promise of secrecy; to advance
the public interest.
What should doctors say, for example, to a 46-year-old man coming in for a routine physical checkup just before going on vacation with his family who, though he feels in perfect health, is found to have a form of cancer that will cause him to die within six months? Is it best to tell him the truth? If he asks, should the doctor reject that he is ill, or minimize fee gravity of the illness? Should they at least hide the truth until after the family vacation?
Doctors face such choices often.At times, they see important reasons to lie for the patient's own sake; in their eyes, such lies differ sharply from self-serving ones.
Studies show that most doctors sincerely believe that the seriously ill patients do not want to know the truth about their condition, and that informing them risks destroying their hope, so that they may recover more slowly, or deteriorate (恶化) faster, perhaps even commit suicide(自杀).
But other studies show that, contrary to the belief of many physicians; a great majority of patients do want to be told the truth, even about serious illness, and feel cheated when they learn that they have been misled.We are also learning that truthful information, humanly conveyed, helps patients cope with illness: help them tolerate pain better, need less medicine, and even recover faster after operation.
There is urgent need to debate this issue openly.Not only in medicine, but in other professions as well, practitioners may find themselves repeatedly in difficulty where serious consequences seem avoidable only through deception (欺骗).Yet the public has every reason to know professional deception, for such practices are peculiarly likely to become deeply rooted, to spread, and to trust.Neither in medicine, nor in law, government, or the social sciences can there be comfort in the old saying, "What you don't know can't hurt you."
60.What is the passage mainly about?
A.Whether patients really want to know the truth of their condition.
B.Whether patients should be told the truth of their illness.
C.Whether different studies should be carried on.
D.Whether doctors are honesty with their patients.
61.For the case mentioned in paragraph 2, most doctors will ____.
A.tell the patient the truth as soon as possible
B.choose to lie to him about his condition at that moment
C.tell him to shorten the family vacation
D.advise him to cancel the family vacation
62.Which of the following is TRUE?
A.Sometimes government tells lies because they need to meet the public interest.
B.Doc tors believe if they lie, those seriously-ill patients will recover more quickly.
C.Truthful information helps patients deal with their illness in some cases.
D.Many patients don't want to know the truth, especially about serious illness.
63.From the passage, we can learn that the author's attitude to professional deception is ____.
A.supportive B.indifferent C.opposed D.neutral
63.From the passage, we can learn that the author’s attitude to professional deception is .

There is a new take on an old tale.It's the story of the three
little pigs and the big bad wolf that blew down a house made of
straw and one made of sticks.The only house left standing was
the one made of bricks.Now there is new evidence to suggest
that houses built with bales(捆)of straw can be very strong.
Pete Walker is a professor at the University of Bath in Britain.
He and a team of researchers there have built a house made out of straw bale and hemp(大麻) material.During the next twelve months the team will study die effectiveness of these materials in home building.Professor Walker says there are many good reasons for using straw.It's a relatively inexpensive renewable material that's quickly and easily available.Straw takes in carbon dioxide as it grows.So it can be seen as having no harmful effects the environment.And the straw bales walls are relatively thick and so all that straw provides very good thermal insulation.So we make buildings that require very little heating in winter or indeed very little cooling in summer.So they require very little additional energy.
David Lanfear owns an eco-friendly home building service in the United States called Bale on Bale Construction.He says he laughed when some friends first told him about houses built of straw.But after doing his own research, he learned that building with straw bales makes a lot of sense.He has now helped to build more than ten straw bale houses and says the building material is becoming more widely accepted.To build the houses, he fills a wood frame with tightly packed bales of straw.Next he coats the walls inside and out with layers of clay plaster.He says the common ideas about straw houses continue, including stories about the threat of fire.As a matter of fact, straw bale houses have done well when tested for fire resistance.And his builders use the same building methods as traditional builders to keep out rain.He says we use what we call good shoes and a good hat, and that would be a solid foundation and a really good roof.
68.According to the passage, Pete Walker ____.
A.is cooperating with David Lanfear in building houses
B.is pretty sure that straw is a good building material
C.is studying home building with his team at present
D.holds a different view of building materials from David Lanfear
69.If we live in houses built with bales of straw, we ____.
A.will be worried about the threat of fire
B.need to wear good shoes in severe weather
C.can reduce our household expense
D.should use a special method to keep out rain
70.In building straw houses, ____.
A.a solid foundation and a good roof are necessary
B.straw bales have to be tested for fire resistance C.a wood frame of straw should be used as a good roof
D.builders should wear good shoes and a good hat
71.Which of the following is the best tide of the passage?
A.Houses Made of Straw
B.New Meaning Of an Old Tale
C.Pete Walker and David Lanfear
D.Solid Foundation and Good Roof
What can be found in the two recent studies?
One showed that adults are much more cooperative if they work in a system based on rewards.Researchers at Harvard University in the United States and the Stockholm School of Economics in Sweden did the study, which appeared last month in the journal Science.They had about two hundred c ollege students play a version of the game known as the Prisoner's Dilemma.The game is based on the tension between the interests of an individual and a group.The students played in groups of four.Each player could win points for the group, so they would all gain equally.But each player could also reward or punish each of the other three players, at a cost to the punisher.Harvard researcher David Rand says the most successful behavior proved to be cooperation (合作).The groups that rewarded most earned about twice as much in the game as the groups that rewarded least.And the more a group punished itself, the lower its earnings.The group with the most punishment earned twenty-five percent less than the group with the least punishment.
The other study referred to children, which was presented last month in California at a conference on violence and abuse.Researchers used intelligence tests given to two groups.More than eight hundred children were ages two to four the first time they were tested.More than seven hundred children were ages five to nine.The two groups were retested four years later, and the study compared the results with the first test.Both groups contained children whose parents used physical punishment and children whose parents did not.The study says the IQs ?or intelligence quotients—of the younger children who were not spanked were five points higher than those who were.In the older group, the difference was almost three points.Murray Strauss from the University of New Hampshire' worked with Mallie Paschall from the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation.Professor Strauss has written extensively about physical punishment of children.He says the more they are spanked, the slower their mental development.He also looked at average IQs in other nations and found them lower where spanking was more common.
72.We can learn from the passage that ____.
A.the first study began last month at Harvard University in America
B.the Prisoner's Dilemma is a game that can teach you how to be cooperative
C.the study on the IQs of children was carried out by Professor Murray Strauss
D.Professor Mallie has done lots of researches on family violence
73.What study method was adopted in the two recent studies according to the passage?
A.Observation. B.Questionnaire. C.Conclusion. D.Experiment.
74.The underlined word "spanked" in the third paragraph refers to ____.
A.scolded constantly B.punished physically
C.praised frequendy D.rewarded mentally
75.Which of the following charts is TRUE according to the passage?

Good morning, everybody!
As we all know, during the last few months, H1N1 flu has been spreading quickly across our country.An increasing number of cases are being reported.As far as our school is concerned, about 20% of the students have been affected.So immediate action should be taken to fight against the disease.
The best way for us to prevent the flu is to wash our hands properly, and always keep the air fresh by opening our windows frequently.At the same time, we should do more exercise to build up our bodies.Besides, we had better stay away from crowded places.And if we have to, wearing masks is necessary.
As long as we have the right way to prevent H1N1, I think it will not be so scary.I would like to call on everyone to fight against the flu and prevent H1N1 from spreading.
