She carefully dips the bowl forward, dropping the porridge directly down her throat, careful not to touch the 15 ulcers(溃疡) in her mouth. But it was the week before midterms, so she still had to study. Jeon was 1st out of 3 30 students on her exams that year. ―Thank god I did,‖ she says. ―If I hadn’t done well I would have been regarded as a failure.‖ By the end of the week, 14-year-old Jeon weighed only 83.6 pounds. Like Jeon, there are countless numbers of first generation Asian-Americans who make great efforts to go beyond at everything. Yet the children themselves cannot all be put to blame for their efforts. Typically, it is the parents wh o are designing a life which they see as perfect for their children. One such occurrence is when I was at my hotel in Beijing. It was roughly around 8:00 p.m. when I decided to take a dip in the pool after dinner. I jumped into the pool that was already spotted with a few Chinese children and I hadn’t realized what was going on until I took notice of the parents calling out orders and instructing their children. I saw various children all under the age of 10 taking laps across the pool trying various styles. If a child’s foot was too bent, her parent would demand that she straighten it. If a child was kicking too slowly, his parent would order that he go faster. I couldn’t help but pity the children whose parents were taking the opportunity to give a swimming lesson, rather than just let them enjoy their time during the holiday. Either because of their parents or their own desire, first-generation Asian-Americans put forth their 110% in order to be accepted into one of the best American colleges. Asian-American students want to see A’s, 100%’s, and perfect scores. According to Jeon, Asians complain that students with a 4.0 GPA and 2400 SAT simply cannot be rejected from top schools. To their disappointment, however, they often are. The ethic(伦理) of this aggressive work also exhibits itself via sports and other after-class activities. What sets Asian-Americans apart, however, is that they fight to be excellent in whatever it is that they do. Be it playing the
piano or performing in math competitions, Asian-Americans look to be in first place. Although it may cause unnecessary stress, such a driven work ethic is a commendable quality. Often blamed for lacking in creativity, Asian-Americans can actually make up for the absence of imagination with their determination. The average American can dream creative dreams, but that only matters if he or she can make it happen in reality. Asian-Americans, instead, can gather creative ideas to produce something concrete. Yet with such a drive to succeed, Asian-Americans have somehow twisted their definition of success. Rather than looking at personal achievement, they refer to numbers, statistics and scores to rate their success. It seems as if desire and the sense of free will are nonexistent in certain Asian-American students as they me rcilessly drive themselves to an inevitable burnout. Their desire to be the most-talented is an impossible dream. In a fruitless attempt, they try to be the best in a world already full of winners. 41. It can be inferred from paragraph 1 that _________________. A. Na He Jeon had to give up the midterm test because of her illness. B. Na He Jeon complained about the heavy study pressure from parents. C. Na He Jeon was struggling hard to achieve academic success. D. Na He Jeon was worrying about negative comments from classmates. 42. The writer mentions the scene of the swimming children in paragraph 2 to _____________. A. stress parents’ decisive role in driving children to be winners B. show parents special skill at instructing children in everything C. emphasize children’s painstaking efforts to satisfy their parents D. describe children’s determination to face the fierce competition 43. The word ―commendable‖ in paragraph 4 is closest in meaning to ______________. A. complex B. admirable C. natural D. fundamental 44. According to Asian-Americans, success lies in __________________. A. realizing imaginative and creative ideas B. achieving individual accomplishment C. winning scholarships to top schools D. rising to the top in scores at everything 45. The writer ’s purpose of writing this article is to ___________________. A. express sympathy for Asian-American children B. advocate academic competition among students C. stress that personal success means more than high scores D. analyze the problems in school education B EVERY YEAR, millions of Americans see their personal information leak into the wrong hands. Maybe there’s spyware on their computer, or a service they use suffered a security reach --- as eBay did this year, leaving customers at risk of exposure. Or perhaps their password is easy to guess: Security company SplashData reports that the most popular passwords in 2013 were 123456 and password. Fear not: It is a lot easier than you might think to set up proper defenses. In fact, you can easily do it all in a weekend. Here’s how. Clean Your Computer And Smartphone Before you put new security measures into place, make sure your devices are as spotless as possible. This means installing a good antivirus program and taking the time to clear out any spy- or malware that may have already infected your system. Go with AVG Free Antivirus (free. Avg. com) or Avast! (avast. com) ---each is free. Run a full system scan. This can take over an hour, so start it before settling into other plans. When you return to your computer, clear out anything that shouldn’t be there with a few simple steps (the program will guide you). These days, it’s also worth it to make sure your phone is safe from viruses. iPhones are less likely to be targeted by spyware, but Android users should download the Lookout app (lookout. com) to scan their devices and ensure everything is as it should be.
Security Your Wi-Fi Now that your computer is clean, you should plug any holes in your home network. It’s fairly easy for potential criminals to gain access to your information if they’re able to share your connection --- that’s why you want to be careful when using public Wi-Fi. For your home, the Federal Communications Commission recommends a few steps. Even though you put security measures into place a couple of years ago, it’s a good idea to refresh your settings. You may have to refer to the instructions for your wireless router or call tech support for help. Different routers will have different setup pages, so the actual step-by-step will vary, but the end result will be the same. Dig Deep with Your Passwords Everything you just accomplished could be for nothing if a thief has your existing passwords, so you need to change them for every service you use. Try it when you find yourself on those sites anyway. What you’ve heard is true: Passwords should use a variety of special characters, numerals, letters, and cases when possible. They should be close to random, and there should be a different one for each website you use. Doing this, and keeping track of it all, is a pain --- which is why people don’t do it and wind up with stolen identities. Try Dashlane (dashlane.com), a password manager with powerful encryption (加密) that can securely keep track of the most ridiculous codes you can come up with. Best of all, it logs you into sites automatically, so there’s no need to worry about all those obscure keystrokes. Whew! Never Answer Unwanted Email Take are when shopping online. Always check the security symbols when using an online site for shopping. If the lock icon encryption is not there, do not give out credit details. Also, check that the site is legal --- never go to a site from a random email and start shopping online. Go to the site through a known URL or by searching for it on a search engine first. Keep a separate credit card just for online shopping. This will make it easier to cancel if something bad does happen and your other credit card for ―in real life‖ can still be used uninfluenced. Don’t store information on any store’s website. It may be conventional but it’s also a possible loss to you if the site is hacked. 46. The passage is mainly about _____________. A. ways of avoiding online identity theft B. tips of freeing computers from viruses C. measures to ensure network security D. steps to keep track of passwords 47. According to the passage, the risk of exposing personal information may possibly be caused by ___________. A. the applications of antivirus programs B. the practice of using public Wi-Fi C. the difficult access to the passwords D. the separate credit card for online shopping 48. To put new security measures into place, we need to ____________. A. clear out of everything in the system B. make a random selection of network C. get rid of potential spyware D. refresh the infected system 49. Which of the following is the improper way to shop online? A. Adopting a unique password for every website. B. Shopping online at reliable websites. C. Keeping credit details safe by checking security symbols. D. Monitoring credit card by storing information. C The one American industry unaffected by the general depression of trade is beauty industry. American women continue to spend on their faces and bodies as much as they spent before—about three million pounds a week. These facts and figures are official and significant. To what is it due? In part, I suppose, to the increase in wealth. But this is, clearly, not the whole story. The cult of beauty must therefore be symptomatic of changes that have taken place outside the economic field. Of what changes? Of the changes, I suggest, in the social position of
women; of the changes in our attitude towards ―the merely physical‖. Women, it is obvious, are freer than in the past. Freer not only to perform the social functions reserved to the male, but also freer to exercise the right of being more attractive. They have the right, if not to be less virtuous(有 品德的) than their grandmothers, at any rate to look less virtuous. The British housewife, a creature of severe and even terrifying aspect not long since, now does her best to achieve and preserve the appearance, which was strongly opposed to in the previous time. For we have now come to admit that the body has its rights. It has, for example, a right to do the best it can for itself in the way of strength and beauty. We demand justice for the body as well for the soul. What are the practical results of this modern cult of beauty? Are women more beautiful than they were? Do they get something for the enormous amount of energy, time and money demanded of them by the beauty-cult? These are questions which are difficult to answer, for the facts seem to be in conflict. The campaign for more physical beauty seems to be both a great success and a terrifying failure. It depends on how you look at the results. It is a success as more women keep their youthful appearance to a greater age than in the past. This desirable consummation will be due in part to skin foods, facial surgery, and paints, in part to improved health, due in its turn to a more reasonable way of life. Ugliness is one of the symptoms of disease, beauty of health. In so far as the campaign for more beauty is also a campaign for more health, it is, up to a point, really successful. When that happy moment comes, will every woman beautiful—as beautiful as the natural shape of her futures, with or without surgical and chemical aid, permits? The answer is definitely: No. The beauty of a porcelain(陶瓷) jar is a matter of shape, of color of surface texturing. The jar may be empty or tenanted by spiders, full of honey or stinking slime—it makes no different to its beauty or ugliness. But a woman is alive, and her beauty is therefore not skin keep. For real beauty is as much an affair of the inner as of the outer self. The women’s beauty is therefore more than skin deep. The surface of a human is affected by the nature of its spiritual contents. I have seen women who were truly lovely. Their shape, their color, their surface were perfect. And yet they were not beautiful for spiritual emptiness or ugliness shows through. But on the contrary, there is an inside light that can change forms that are regarded imperfect or ugly. Most importantly, the cult of beauty is supposed to touch the deepest source of beauty --- the experiencing soul. It is not by improving skin goods, by cheapening health equipment and electrical hair-removers, that the human race will be made beautiful; it is not even by improving health. All men and women will be beautiful only when the social arrangements give to every one of them an opportunity to live completely and harmoniously. 50. The most significant reason for women’s cult of beauty is _____________. A. the changes in their status and attitude to physical beauty B. the build-up of wealth in the economic field C. the decrease of other fields influenced by the general depression D. the new privilege in fulfilling social functions 51. From paragraph 3-4 we can learn that ____________________. A. the beauty industry deserves energy and money B. the surgical and chemical aid free women from aging C. the healthier way of life leads to women’s staying young D. the beauty campaign has achieved great success 52. The example of the porcelain jar illustrates __________________. A. the importance of shape and surface B. the gap between appearance and contents C. the connection between inner and outer self D. the ugliness of appearance and spirits 53. According to the author, the cult of beauty should focus on ________________. A. giving people a good knowledge of health and disease B. increasing people’s awareness of health problems C. promoting the development of the body and the soul
D. encouraging people to live in harmony with nature 54. What is the real concern of the writer of this article? A. The promising future of beauty industry B. The praise of beauty-cult as a success C. The understanding of physical beauty D. The importance of inner qualities D On his bench in Madison Square Soapy moved uneasily, and he realized the fact that the time had come for him to provide against the coming winter. The winter ambitions of Soapy were not of the highest. In them there were no dreams of Mediterranean voyages or blue Southern skies. Three months on the Island was what his soul desired. Three months of assured board and bed and good company, safe from north winds seemed to Soapy the most desirable thing. Just as the more fortunate New Yorkers had bought their tickets to Palm Beach each winter, Soapy had made his arrangements for his annual journey to the Island. And now the time had come. There were many institutions of charity in New York where he might receive lodging and food, but to Soapy’s proud spirit the gifts of charity were undesirable. You must pay in humiliation of spirit for everything received at the hands of mercy. So it was better to be a guest of the law. Soapy, having decided to go to the Island, at once set about accomplishing his desire. He left his bench and went up Broadway. He stopped at the door of a glittering cafe. He was shaven and his coat was decent. If he could reach a table in the restaurant, the portion of him that would show above the table would raise no doubt in the waiter’s mind. A roasted duck, with a bottle of wine, a cigar and a cup of coffee would be enough. Such a dinner would make him happy, for the journey to his winter refuge. But as Soapy entered the restaurant door, the head waiter’s eye fell upon his shabby trousers and old shoes. Strong hands pushed him in silence and haste out into the street. Some other way of entering the desirable refuge must be found. At a corner of Sixth Avenue Soapy took a stone and sent it through the glass of a glittering shop window. People came running around the corner, a policeman at the head of them. Soapy stood still, with his hands in his pockets, and smiled at the sight of the policeman. ―Where is the man that has done that?‖ asked the policeman. ―Don’t you think that I have had something to do with it?‖ said Soapy, friendly. The policeman paid no attention to Soapy. Men who break windows don’t remain to speak with policemen. They run away. He saw a man running and rushed after him, stick in hand. Soapy, disgusted, walked along, twice unsuccessful. On the opposite side of the street was a restaurant for people with large appetites and modest purses. Soapy entered this place without difficult y. He sat at a table and ate beefsteak and pie. And then he told the waiter he had no money. ―Go and call a cop,‖ said Soapy. ―And don’t keep a gentleman waiting.‖ ―No cop for you,‖ said the waiter. ―Hey!‖ Then Soapy found himself lying upon his left ear on t he pavement. He arose with difficulty, and beat the dust from his clothes. Arrest seemed a rosy dream. The Island seemed far away. After another unsuccessful attempt to be arrested for harassing a young woman, Soapy went further toward the district of theatres. When he saw a policeman standing in front of a glittering theatre, he thought of ―disorderly conduct‖. On the sidewalk Soapy began to sing drunken songs at the top of his voice. He danced, cried, and otherwise disturbed the peace. The policeman turned his back to Soapy, and said to a citizen, ―It is one of the Yale boys celebrating their football victory. Noisy, but no harm.‖ Sadly, Soapy stopped his useless singing and dancing. The Island seemed unattainable. He buttoned his thin
coat against the north wind. In a cigar store he saw a well-dressed man who had set his silk umbrella by the door. Soapy entered the store, took the umbrella, and went out with it slowly. The man with the cigar followed hastily. ―My umbrella,‖ he said. ―Oh, is it?‖ said Soapy. ―Well, why don’t you call a policeman? I took your umbrella! Why don’t you call a cop? There stands one on the corner.‖ The umbrella owner slowed his steps. Soapy did likewise. The policeman looked at them curiously. ―Of course,‖ said the umbrella man, ―well, you know how these mistakes occur…if it’s your umbrella I hope you’ll excuse me – I picked it up this morning in a restaurant – if it’s yours, I hope you’ll…‖ ―Of course it’s mine,‖ said Soapy. The ex-umbrella man retreated. The policeman hurried to help a well-dressed woman across the street. Soapy threw the umbrella angrily. He was angry with the men who wear helmets and carry clubs. They seemed to regard him as a king who could do no wrong. At last Soapy stopped before an old church on a quiet corner. Through one window a soft light glowed, where, the organist played a Sunday anthem. For there came to Soapy’s ears sweet music that caught and held him at the iron fence. The moon was shining; cars and pedestrians were few; birds twittered sleepily under the roof. And the anthem that the organist played cemented Soapy to the iron fence, for he had known it well in the days when his life contained such things as mothers and roses and ambitions and friends. The influence of the music and the old church produced a sudden and wonderful change in Soapy’s soul. He thought of his degraded days, dead hopes and wrecked faculties. And also in a moment a strong impulse moved him to battle with his desperate fate. He would pull himself out of this pit; he would make a man of himself again. Those sweet notes had set up a revolution in him. Tomorrow he would be somebody in the world. He would… Soapy felt a hand on his arm. He looked quickly around into the broad face of a policeman. ―What are you doing here?‖ ―Nothing.‖ ―Then come along,‖ said the policeman. ―Three months on the Island,‖ said the Judge the next morning. 55. Soapy regarded the Island as his winter ambition because _____. A. he wanted to go on Mediterranean voyages and enjoy blue Southern skies B. he wanted to spend the cold winter somewhere warm other than New York C. he wanted to be put into prison to survive the coming winter D. he wanted to buy a ticket to the Island to spend the cold winter 56.Which of the following is the reason for Soapy’s not turning to charity? A. His pride gets in the way. B. What the institutions of charity offer isn’t what Soapy needs. C. He wants to be a citizen who obeys the law. D. The institutions of charity are not located on the island. 57. How many times did Soapy try to accomplish his desire? A. 4. B. 5. C. 6. D. 7. 58. From the passage, we can see what the two restaurants have in common is that _____. A. they are both fancy upper class restaurants B. neither of them served Soapy C. they both drove Soapy out of the restaurant after he finished his meal D. neither of them called cops
59. Hearing the Sunday anthem at the church, Soapy _____. A. was reminded of his good old days and wanted to play the anthem again B. was reminded of his unaccomplished ambition and was determined to get to the Island C. was reminded of his disgraceful past and determined to transform himself D. was reminded of his rosy dream and wished to realize it 60. By ending the story this way, the author means to _____. A. show that one always gets what he/she wants with enough efforts B. make a contrast and criticize the sick society C. surprise readers by proving justice was done after all D. put a tragic end to Soapy’s life and show his sympathy for Soapy 第二节：下面文章中有 5 处（第 61-65 题）需要添加小标题。请从以下选项（A、B、C、D、E 和 F）中选 出符合各段意思的小标题，并在答题纸上将相应选项的标号涂黑。选项中有一项是多余选项。 A. Music calms B. Sweet food helps fight cancer C. Shopping burns more calories D. Cocoa improves your health E. Gifting an experience promotes happiness F. Writing holiday cards can promote gratitude Christmas Is Good For You … Really!!! The Christmas holiday season gets a bad name when it comes to health, but this time of year can actually boost your mind and body. And here’s how … 61. ____________ Studies have found that spending money on experiences increases happiness more than paying a large sum of money for material goods. Now new research shows this mood lift can come from simply making your list (and checking it twice): A 2014 Cornell study found that people who merely expect to make an up coming experiential purchase, such as ski lessons, report higher levels of happiness than those who plan to buy, say, a new tech gadget. 62. ____________ Singing can reduce stress hormones and boost oxytocin, the ―love‖ hormone that promotes feelings of trust and bonding. Swedish research published last year found that certain aspects of singing make people adopt a calm breathing pattern, like that associated with yoga. Singing in a group can improve self-esteem and increase feelings of social belonging, which can ward off loneliness. Even if you are not accustomed to singing aloud Christmas tunes door-to-door, sing along with your kids or our partner to a holiday radio station while you go on a short trip or drive to visit families or friends. 63. ____________ Waling about in the supermarket for about an hour can burn 200 to 300 calories, depending on your size; what’s more, it’s time you do not stick to your computer or television screens. Too much sitting increases your risk of everything from type 2 diabetes to cancer. The more ―incidental‖ fitness — stringing holiday fights, searching for an old album in the basement, bustling around the kitchen while preparing holiday dinners — you can squeeze into your day, the better off you will be. 64. ____________ Instead of working with the modern instant communication apps, consider it an opportunity to write a personal note expressing how much the receiver means to you and how much you appreciate the help or guidance he or she offered. One study found that people who put down what they were thankful for each week felt more optimistic about their lives, exercised more, and even had fewer visits to physicians than people who wrote down things that annoyed them or neutral events. 65. ____________ This sweet treat lowers LDL cholesterol (胆固醇) and blood pressure, raises HDL cholesterol, and even improves cognitive function and memory. In 2012, the European Food Safety Athority issued a scientific opinion that said consuming 200mg of cocoa flavonoids(类黄酮) a day can contribute to healthy blood flow. A cup made
with a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa can contain or even go beyond this amount. To minimize clumping, mix powder into milk that’s really warm. Add spices like cinnamon and a small amount of sugar or honey to cut the bitterness.
