Chinese people also have ghost festival on July 15 of lunar calendar, which is called “Zhongyuan Festival” or “Hungry Ghost Festival”. The ghosts are believed to be released for no more than two days during Halloween, while it’s at least for one month during Chinese ghost festival. Stemmed from different cultures, let’s see how they are different and how they are similar. Keep evolving & Tradition continues

The Halloween, starting from a festival of defending spirits in Ireland, has evolved from Pagan to Christian and to Secular, with the theme becoming a carnival(狂欢节) for all. Zhongyuan Festival originates from Buddhist traditions, and then combines Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism, which still remains a religious observance in China. Expel ghosts & Respect ghosts The two festivals have different attitudes toward ghosts. During Halloween, people dress up like ghosts to scare away spirits rather than please them. While during Chinese Zhongyuan Festival, people burn paper money and sacrifice the spirits to show their respect. Funny & Scary The Halloween has become a full-of-fun carnival when people dress up, play trick-or-treat games, and partying. With its light theme, the festival has been celebrated around the world, also in China. However Chinese Zhongyuan Festival is still a serious thing and people are scared of ghosts when talking about them. There are some taboos during the festival which can avoid the spirits from hurting you, like no swimming and no walking outside late at night. Pumpkin lantern & Water lantern During Halloween, people make pumpkin lights, which are made by hollowing the pumpkin, carving evil faces on the surface and put candles inside, used to drive out the spirits. During Zhongyuan Festival, Chinese people also make river lanterns by pasting paper into a lotus shapes with a lamp or candle placed inside. Lanterns are released to rivers or lakes to guide the way for the dead people to the dark hell. 41. The Halloween is celebrated worldwide because _____. A. it is a western culture B. people like playing a trick by nature C. many activities are held D. it provides entertainment for people 42. Which of the following should people avoid doing during Chinese Zhongyuan Festival? A. Going outing late at night. B. Talking about ghosts. C. Releasing river lanterns. D. Burning paper money. 43. What do the two ghost festivals have in common? A. Ghosts enjoy freedom for about one month. B. Religious tradition is still kept alive. C. People have respect for ghosts. D. Lanterns are made to drive away spirits. B My children are unlikely to read this, which is lucky for me, because it would give them support for the ongoing “Can we get a dog or a cat?” argument. Because the research suggests that having one is good for children. A study published in JAMA Pediatrics shows that children who had a dog in their first year of life were 13% less likely to develop asthma(哮喘) by the time they were six than those from dog-free households. It is believed that children are more likely to develop allergies(过敏) if they are brought up in super-clean environments. This study allowed for other factors that increase the risk of asthma, but can still show only an association. It is estimated that 46% of households in the UK have pets, with dogs and then cats the most common animals. The evidence on the benefit of having cats in reducing allergies is inconsistent, but some research shows that pets make children healthier. A study of 397 Finnish babies in 2012 found that, during their first year of life, those whose parents had dogs or cats had fewer colds and needed less antibiotics(抗生素) than those from homes without pets. Dogs offered more protection than cats. The researchers think this is because they brought in more dirt from outside to cause the babies’ immune systems(免疫系统) to function. There is also some evidence that having a pet may make children feel more popular and be more understanding. Older studies found that pets increased the amount of time families spent

together as well as the amount of “fun” they had. Pets can help children to learn about responsibility, take more exercise (if you get a dog) and deal with loss --- who can forget when their family pet got run over? However, the research for health benefits is not strong enough on its own to give good reason for a pet in our home. Both dogs and cats have a tendency to poop(大便), and they can carry worms or other parasites(寄生虫). Also, while I couldn’t find any studies, it seems that few children look after the animals they repeatedly asked their parents for. 44. According to some research, having a pet makes children healthier because _____. A. they are unlikely to develop asthma B. they live in a super-clean environment C. pets can protect them from danger D. dirt makes them better able to defend against disease 45. Having pets has the following benefits except _____. A. gaining popularity B. having more responsibility C. increasing the time with family D. avoiding suffering from losses 46. What does the last paragraph mainly talk about? A. There is no good reason for having pets. B. Having pets has its disadvantages. C. Children share the care of pets with parents. D. Pets may bring diseases to children. 47. What can be the best title for the passage? A. Will having a pet make your child healthier? B. What benefits do pets bring to your child? C. How does having a pet reduce the risk of disease? D. Can children have a dog or a cat? C It’s easy to assume that when you finally lose those excess pounds, life will change for the better. But dieting can in fact make you miserable and more at risk of depression, a study claims. Researchers found that losing weight didn’t make people happy. Instead, those who successfully slimmed down were almost twice as likely to feel sad, lonely and listless than those who stayed the same weight or got fatter. The research, at University College London, found that the advertising industry tells dieters their lives will be transformed when they are thinner. They then feel disappointed when they discover little has changed other than their weight. In addition, dieting itself can be difficult, which in turn can cause people to feel down. The findings come from a study of almost 2,000 overweight men and women aged 50 and over. They were weighed at the start of the study and answered questions about how often they felt sad, lonely and listless. Four years later, some 14 percent of the volunteers had lost at least 5 percent of their body weight – an amount known to improve health. Tests showed their blood pressure and levels of harmful blood fats had dropped, however their mood was also lower. Those who had lost weight were 78 percent more likely to have symptoms of depression than those who hadn’t. And importantly, the link could not be explained away by participants’ having fallen ill or suffered a bereavement(丧亲) or divorce during the intervening years, the journal PLOS ONE reported. Researcher Sarah Jackson said, “We do not want to discourage anyone from trying to lose weight, which has great physical benefits, but people should not expect weight loss to instantly improve all aspects of life.” The difficulties of sticking to a diet may also have a negative effect on mood, the

researchers found. Dr Jackson said: “Dieting requires considerable willpower and it might involve missing out on special meals and eating in restaurants. It is not necessarily the most pleasant experience for people. “Lots of people want to lose weight thinking it will fix all their problems. But while it will go some way towards fixing their health, it won’t necessarily make them happier in the short-term.” She added that it is possible that slimmers are happier eventually, especially if they feel a sense of achievement from reaching their target weight and maintaining it. 48. It can be learned from the passage that _____. A. the difficulty in dieting makes people feel depressed B. overweight women are more likely to suffer depression C. with blood pressure dropping, people’s mood dropped too D. the more weight one loses, the more depression he is to suffer 49. Researcher Sarah Jackson may agree that _____. A. people shouldn’t go on diets B. dieting can’t make people fitter and healthier C. dieters’ life will be improved when they are thinner D. people shouldn’t expect too much from going on diets 50. The writer’s attitude toward dieting is _____. A. objective B. subjective C. optimistic D. pessimistic 51. The main idea of the passage is _____. A. dieting makes people fitter and healthier B. dieting helps people solve many a problem C. dieting makes people depressed D. dieting makes people lose pleasant experiences D Recently, while eating lunch by myself at a local diner, I realized something that bothered me: I’m losing the ability to sit and do nothing. Where I used to be able to sit contently and simply daydream or observe my surroundings, I now feel anxious and awkward if I’m sitting alone with nothing specific for my hands or brain to do. It didn’t take me long to figure out why. Looking around at the other solo diners that day, I noticed something common: the smart phone. Technology is replacing something many people have never thought was worth doing --- sitting still and simply letting your mind wander. I worry that the more dependent we become on technology to help us pass idle time, the less likely we’ll be to allow our minds to wander in positive ways. It’s already become common for parents to hand their kids an iPhone when they’re complaining of boredom. Though I recognize the logic-improving and hand/eye coordination(协调) benefits of video games in young people, I can’t help but wonder how it is taking away opportunities for them to expand their imaginations, creativity, and overall mindfulness. I’m noticing it in older generations, too. A woman was walking outside on a beautiful morning with her head down, reading a Kindle. While it’s true that she was using her imagination through the book, her brain was missing out on something you can only get when you truly appreciate the natural world we’re all apart of. And establishing a true and lasting connection to nature may be only way we’ll be able to shake society’s general apathy toward climate change and make the real changes necessary to reduce its impacts. Which brings me to my favorite argument for why we need to spend more time staring into space rather than into a screen: how else can we encourage the advanced ideas, innovations, and

solutions that only seem to pop into one’s mind when it’s disconnected from a specific task and allowed to wander? I recently read Mason Currey’s book Daily Rituals: How Artists Work, which is a fascinating report of the work habits of 161 of history’s greatest creative thinkers from Matisse and Mahler to Freud and Einstein. What stood out to me by the end was how many of them took time out of their busy days to take a walk or just sit and seemingly do nothing. Who knows how many world-changing ideas first made themselves apparent during those daily moments of stillness and thought? It suggested to me that what we consider “downtime” may actually be the access point to a higher plane of thinking --- one that I’m hoping to find my way back into now that I’ve opened my eyes again to the world that exists outside of the phone in my pocket. 52. The author feels awkward at a local diner because he/she _______. A. doesn’t have a smart phone at hand B. has no company when eating C. finds him/herself dependent on technology D. is looking at other people dining 53. What can be inferred from paragraphs 3 and 4? A. Video games are beneficial to expanding children’s imaginations. B. Reading on a Kindle can’t develop imagination like physical books. C. Technology has brought great change to the natural world. D. Heavy dependence on technology will kill people’s creative thinking. 54. The underlined word “apathy ” (Para 4) has the possible meaning of _______. A. uncertain attitude B. lacking concern C. immediate measures D. urgent warning 55. Mason Curry ’s book is mentioned in the last paragraph to indicate ______. A. how artists work in their spare time B. even great thinkers do nothing sometimes C. doing nothing encourages inspiration D. stillness makes a quick access to being great thinkers

第四部分: 任务型阅读(满分 10 分)
请认真阅读下列短文 ,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单 词。 Was Jesus Happy? Americans tend to think Jesus was happy, extroverted (外向的) , agreeable, kind and caring. Koreans, on the other hand, associate Jesus more with suffering, sacrifice, and pity, according to a recent analysis in Personality and Social Psychology Connections. Responses to the simple question about Jesus and happiness, whose Biblical description is essentially the same worldwide, turn out to involve complex factors, such as shared life histories, culture and possibly even genetics. “Americans meet far more strangers than others and need to be more extroverted than the Japanese, Koreans and others who tend to interact with a small number of people repeatedly, so extroversion is a highly valued asset in the U.S.,” Shigehiro Oishi, lead author of the study, told Discovery News. “In the end, happiness, extroversion, and kindness are all highly valued qualities among Americans, and they might just see Jesus to have these highly desirable characteristics.” Oishi said that “Buddhism and other religions had been firmly in place in Korea before the introduction of Christianity, and life is suffering in Buddhism. The main goal of Buddhism was to reduce pain and suffering.” Other cultural differences may further explain the American and Korean responses. Oishi said such differences pose “an egg and chicken problem” involving genetics and shared life experiences, since one can affect the other. It is also unclear if the image of Jesus might be culturally constructed to fit an existing ideal, or if it could reflect an individual’s self-image. Casey Eggleston, a researcher at the University of Virginia, told Discovery News that language differences also come into play, with the meaning of happiness differing across cultures over time. “The historical definition of happiness included concepts of luck and good fortune, but that meaning has fallen out of use in the U.S., where many believe they can pursue and obtain happiness by their own effort, while it remains a major part of the concept in most other cultures,” she explained. “Similarly, the emotional connotation of the word happy varies greatly. While the American concept typically includes upbeat positive emotions like excitement, the concept in East Asia tends to focus more on calm positive emotions like peace and contentment.” The researchers chose to focus on two particular countries, but they expect respondents in other nations with a large Christian base would also provide different, culture-predicted responses to the question, “Was Jesus happy?” As for Oishi’s answer to whether or not Jesus was happy, he said, “I don’t know for sure, but I don’t think so. He had a tough life.” Theme Was Jesus happy?

Of the three choices, I prefer to organize a charity sale, which I think is fun and meaningful. Here are my suggestions about the activity. First, it is important to make an eye-catching poster, getting its meaning across to the public and attracting more people to be involved in the activity. Second, we can encourage students to collect the books, clothes or toys they don’t use any longer, so long as they are in good condition. What they don’t need may be valuable to others. Meanwhile, it can improve their living space. In this sense, donation will result in a win-win situation for donators and the charity. Last but not the least, the money raised from the activity will be donated to the school to pay the tuition fees for the needy students so that they can enjoy the equal schooling opportunity. The charity sale will provide us with an opportunity to make a difference to some people as well as the warm feeling we can get inside when we do something nice for others.

Lisa, our little company, and it is little compared to the giants in the city. Our little company’s in danger. We need to expand. If we don’t, we will be swallowed up by one of the giants. Text 8 M: If someone offered to pay all my expenses for a month’s holiday anywhere in the world, I would feel very surprised and very excited. I think I would decide to fly around the world and to visit three different countries. The countries I would visit would be Australia, the United States of America and Kenya. If I went to Australia, I would stay there for about two weeks. (17)Before I went, I would write to one of my Australian friends. (18)I would suggest that if it were possible, he should spend a week with me visiting Aboriginal tribes in the northern part of Australia. My friend could explain what we saw and he could translate what people said because he majored in Aboriginal Studies at Queensland University. If I went to the United States, I would stay there for about a week. (19)I expect I would start by visiting New York. I have heard that New York is a very exciting city. After I had stayed for two or three days in New York, I would fly to San Francisco. I hope I could stay with my friends who live there and I would visit the city and other parts of California. Finally, I would fly to Kenya where I would stay for about a week. There are three things I would like to do in Kenya. First, I hope I could visit the coast. Next, I would like to visit a game reserve. I imagine the wild animals of Africa—the lion, elephant and hippopotamus—are very exciting and beautiful. (20) Finally, I would like to visit the Mountains of Kenya where you can see snow on the Equator. If someone offered me this money, I would be amazed. Unfortunately, I do not think this will ever happen and I doubt if I shall ever visit these countries.
