Paying more for a ticket to see a film in 3D is the cause of annoyance of many a cinema-goer’s life. But there may be a(n) 41 to doing so, as a study has claimed that 3D films exercise the brain and improve short-term functioning in a similar way to brain-training tests. The research was led by neuroscientist( 神经科学家 ) Dr Patrick Fagan from Goldsmiths University in London. More than 100 people took part in the experiment, where participants watched Disney film Big Hero 6 in either 42 type or RealD 3D. They also carried out a brain-training-style test before and after seeing a part from the film. The test covered memory, reaction time and cognitive (认知的) function, and the results were later 43 . According to the research, participants 44 a 23 per cent increase in cognitive processing, as well as an 11 percent increase in reaction time. Dr Fagan said that the results showed enough of an improvement in brain function to suggest that 3D could play a part in improving brain 45 in the future. “These findings are more significant than you might think,” he said. “It is a fact that people are living longer and there is a(n) 46 decline in cognitive brain function in old age which can damage future quality of life. There has never been a better time to look at ways to improve brain function. The initial results of this study indicate that 3D films may 47 play a role in slowing this decline.” A second part of the experiment involved those watching the film being fitted with headsets(耳机) that 48 brain activity and this too showed heightened activity when watching 3D. According to the results, participants were seven percent more engaged with
高三英语 共 10 页 第 4 页
what they were watching, adding to the argument that 3D movies are more like watching real-life-something. “A seven percent rise in emotional engagement is 49 remarkable. Watching in 3D gives the viewer such an enriched and quality experience, as these results show,” he said. “In evolutionary 50 , the results of both parts of the test certainly make sense. 3D films are more likely to heighten the senses and cause emotional arousal—this, in turn, makes the brain run at quicker speeds,” Dr Fagan added. III. Reading Comprehension Section A Directions: For each blank in the following passage there are four words or phrases marked A, B, C and D. Fill in each blank with the word or phrase that best fits the context. Researchers recently find women likely face work environments that push against the “having it all” mentality, leading to feelings of guilt and depression. Trying to have it all could be bad for your mental health, according to a new study that finds that “supermoms” have higher rates of depression compared with working moms who let things 51 . The research, presented Aug. 20 at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association in Las Vegas, finds that working is 52 for mothers’ mental health. But among working mothers, the least depressed are those who don’t expect to 53 work and family life perfectly, said study researcher Katrina Leupp, a graduate student at the University of Washington in Seattle. “The ideal that women can do it all actually 54 the level of depressive symptoms compared to women who were more doubtful about whether or not work and family can be balanced,” Leupp told LiveScience. Leupp analyzed survey 55 from 1,600 married women who participated in a large survey called the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth. In 1987, the women answered questions to judge their support of women’s 56 , including whether they agreed with statements such as “Women are much happier if they stay at home and take care of their children.” In 1992 and 1994, the now 40-year-old women answered questions about their symptoms of depression. Like earlier studies, the survey data indicated that women who worked outside the home had fewer symptoms of depression, perhaps because outside work gives women more 57 interaction, more varied activities and a larger income, Leupp said. Among the employed women, though, the cheeriest were those who had indicated in their younger years the least 58 for women balancing career and family. The results held even after controlling for earlier levels of depression. “Somewhat 59 , women who don’t expect to be able to balance work and family have better mental health than those who do,” Leupp said. The study didn’t explain why optimistic (乐观的) views of balancing work and motherhood would 60 later depression. “The reason may come down to 61 and real-world work environments,” Leupp said. “Women who expect to have it all probably come up against 62 that aren’t designed with work-life balance in mind. When they can’t balance everything perfectly, these supermoms are more likely to feel 63 .”

“I think this research really speaks to a 64 between women’s expectations and the actual structure of the workplace,” Leupp said. “The takeaway for working moms is to temper their optimism about balancing 65 and employment and not to blame themselves if they struggle. Recognize that if it feels difficult, it’s because it is difficult.” 51. A. happen 52. A. good 53. A. protect 54. A. increased 55. A. questions 56. A. pregnancy 57. A. cultural 58. A. support 59.

Section B Directions: Read the following three passages. Each passage is followed by several questions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C and D. Choose the one that fits best according to the information given in the passage you have just read. （A） The twenty-four horses dash around a racetrack. The thunder of their hooves (蹄) rings in the riders’ ears, nearly drowning out the cheering of the crowd. After three or four minutes of suspense, one horse crosses the finish line first, winning the Melbourne Cup and earning a place in history. The horses that compete in the Melbourne Cup—one of the world’s most famous horseraces—were fated to race. Bred for speed, these horses are the few that were singled out as having potential to become champions. Preparing a racehorse to compete requires a team. A horse’s owner manages the team and decides which races to enter. A trainer determines the racehorse’s diet and exercise. Regular exercise makes a horse less likely to be injured, but overtraining tires the horse. A groomer (动物美容师) cares for the racehorse and reports any problems he discovers to the trainer. And of course, no horserace could be run without a rider. These riders train for long hours and travel constantly from one race to another. They need to make a strategy, adapt to changing conditions and communicate with their horse to guide it to victory.

Australia’s most famous horserace, the Melbourne Cup, is 3,200 meters of pure excitement. Each year 300 or 400 horses are nominated (提名), but only 24 can run. The competitors are chosen based on a number of factors, but winners of certain races qualify automatically. Each racehorse receives a handicap—a certain weight it must carry to give each horse an equal chance of winning—two months before the race. Originally, horses that seemed likely to win were assigned larger handicaps. But the rules have changed, reducing the handicap for previous winners. The first Melbourne Cup in 1861 drew a crowd of 4,000 spectators, and the race ’s popularity has grown since then. Held on the first Tuesday of November, the cup has become a four-day festival with fine food and entertainment. The Melbourne Cup began during a gold rush as a form of entertainment for the rich. Today it still attracts society’s upper class. They come dressed in their finest to enjoy the event in comfort. But anyway it’s all about the race—the effort of horses and riders, the suspense and the thrill of victory. 66. What can be learned about the horses in the Melbourne Cup? A. They are all winners of a certain race. B. They are raised and trained by joint effort. C. They are chosen from ordinary horses. D. Their fates are determined by their trainers. 67. The racehorses are given handicaps so that _____. A. they will weigh the same B. previous winners are unlikely to win C. the race will be fair enough D. they will be more adaptable to the race 68. It can be learned from the passage that _____. A. the spectators of the Melbourne Cup must dress well B. the Melbourne Cup was intended for wealthy people C. the winner of the Melbourne Cup can earn a large fortune D. the Melbourne Cup is the best-known horserace worldwide 69. The passage can most probably be found in _____. A. a sports journal B. a business newspaper C. an academic paper D. a health magazine （ B） Down County Museum - Open and Free What’s On Contact details The Mall, Downpatrick, County Down, BT30 6AH Telephone: +44 (0) 28 4461 5218 Fax: +44 (0) 28 4461 5590 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Opening hours Monday to Friday 10.00 am - 5.00 pm Saturdays and Sundays 1.00 pm - 5.00 pm Admission free There is however a charge for some special events and for guided tours.

The solution may be just a few steps away. “Energy harvesting” promises to power countless consumer devices, often with nothing more than your body’s movement or heat. Dozens of companies around the world already offer such products, but many experts believe the market for the technology could explode due to electronic devices being developed for the Internet of Things. “It’s huge,” said Graham Martin, CEO of the EnOcean Alliance, a San Ramon-based group of businesses that promotes wireless energy-harvesting technologies. With the Internet of Things expected to combine billions of devices, “if they are all battery-powered, we’ll have a problem because there’s not enough lithium (锂) in the world,” he added. “So a lot of them will have to use energy harvesting.” Among the most basic forms of the technology is body power. When certain materials are squeezed or stretched, the movement of their atoms creates an electrical charge. Automatic watches have employed the concept for decades, for example, by winding themselves when their user moves their arm. Now, the concept is being considered for a number of other devices. In a contest seeking visionary ideas for wearable technologies, Intel awarded $5,000 for a concept to change the temperature difference between a person’s body and a special piece of clothing they’d wear into electricity for mobile devices. Using sound to power devices is another energy-harvesting variation. Stanford University engineers are testing smart microchips (芯片) that create electricity from ultrasound (超声波) to power implantable (可植入的) devices that can analyze a person’s nervous system or treat their diseases. A textile (纺织品) research association in Spain is proposing to obtain electricity from radio waves that flow around everyone to power sensors sewn into clothes, which can monitor a person’s heartbeat or other vital signs. Research firm IDTechEx has estimated that annual global sales of energy-harvesting products could hit $2.6 billion by 2024, while WinterGreen Research predicts sales of $4.2 billion by 2019. Obtaining stable energy from devices can be complex, however. For one thing, the motion that generates the electricity has to be constant to be useful. Moreover, the amount of power the devices produce depends on the person using them, according to a Columbia
高三英语 共 10 页 第 9 页
University study. It determined that taller people on average provide about 20 percent more power than shorter ones when walking, running or cycling. It’s also unclear how eagerly consumers might welcome energy-harvesting products. While such devices are expected to cost less than battery-powered alternatives when compared over many years, experts say, people may continue buying ones with batteries merely because those would be cheaper in the short term. 74. Which “explode” in the following sentences has the most similar meaning to the word “explode” in Paragraph 2? A. They were clearing up when the second bomb exploded. B. The continued tension could explode into more violence. C. The population exploded to 40,000 during the last tourist season. D. The boss exploded when he heard of the resignation of the secretary. 75. What makes “energy harvesting” necessary according to the passage? A. The waste of lithium in the world. B. The increasing number of electronic devices. C. The development of technology. D. The pollution caused by batteries. 76. It can be learned from the passage that _____. A. energy-harvesting products save money in the long run B. taller people can surely produce a larger amount of power C. automatic watches harvest energy from the users’ body heat D. two ways of harvesting energy are mentioned in the passage 77. Which of the following might be the best title for the passage? A. Energy harvesting: a low-risk technology B. Energy harvesting: a high-profit technology C. Energy harvesting: a problem-free technology D. Energy harvesting: an environment-friendly technology Section C Directions: Read the passage carefully. Then answer the questions or complete the statements in the fewest possible words. Want to attract and keep top talent? Here’s a suggestion: Make a flexible work schedule part of the deal. A survey this summer of 1,215 U.S. managers and employees across a variety of industries, by EY (formerly Ernst & Young), found those aged 18 to 32 rank flexibility among the perks (特殊待遇) they want most, with 33% saying they wouldn’t work anywhere that didn’t offer it. But it seems those aged 33 to 48 value flextime even more: 38% of them consider it non-negotiable, with men who said so, at 40%, slightly outnumbering women (37%). “Companies first started offering flexible schedules, in the late 80s and the 90s, as a way to recruit (招募) and keep talented women, but it’s gone way beyond that now,”
高三英语 共 10 页 第 10 页
observes Karyn Twaronite, an EY partner who came up through the tax side of the business. Noting that both men and women, in all age groups, ranked flextime (弹性工作制) tops among non-cash perks, Twaronite adds, “That result mirrors exactly what we’re seeing here at EY.” The accounting and consulting giant, No. 57 on Fortune’s Best Companies to Work For, has had thousands of employees working flexible schedules for years—including, since 2004, six weeks’ of paid leave for new dads. “Flextime may have started out as a women’s issue, but it’s changed into something that people of both sexes have come to expect,” he adds. “I think it’s partly because of the large number of two-career households now, where people have to adapt to two demanding professional schedules instead of just one.” The EY survey suggests that, in the next decade or so, the opportunity for a life outside the office will become an even bigger draw than it already is. Most of those surveyed still work a set schedule, the report notes, but “respondents expect a shift in the coming years to more flexible hours, as 62% currently work standard office hours and only 50% expect to do so in five to ten years.” That doesn’t surprise Twaronite. “Work is changing,” she observes. “The technology to connect anywhere and anytime means that people are expected to be on call 24 hours a day, especially in global companies that operate across different time zones. The other side of that is that employers are adapting to people’s lives outside of work—because they have to be.” (Note: Answer the questions or complete the statements in NO MORE THAN TEN WORDS.) 78. What is the main finding of the survey? 79. Flextime was originally aimed at _____. 80. The result of the survey is caused by the fact that _____. 81. What makes flextime possible according to Twaronite? 第Ⅱ卷（共 47 分） I.

崇明县 2016 届第二次高考模拟考试 英语试卷 听力录音文字 Listening Comprehension Section A Directions: In Section A, you will hear ten short conversations between two speakers. At the end of each conversation, a question will be asked about what was said. The conversations and the questions will be spoken only once. After you hear a conversation and the question about it, read the four possible answers on your paper, and decide which one is the best answer to the question you have heard. 1. W: Excuse me. I am looking for the novel Harry Potter. M: I’m afraid it’s out of stock. You’ll have to place an order. Q: Where does the conversation most probably take place? 2. M: Pamela, I’m disappointed with your work lately. You’ve been late three times in the past month, and last week you gave shoes of a wrong size to a customer. W: Sorry, Mr. Jacobs. I promise to be more careful. Q: What ’s the most probable relationship between the two speakers? 3. W: How long does it take you to drive to the office? M: Usually about 10 minutes if there is not much traffic. But if I can’t leave before 8 a.m., it takes 5 minutes more. Q: How long does the man probably spend travelling to work by car when there is heavy traffic? 4. M: Oh, take a look at the price of this shirt. W: Gosh, you can get four of them for the amount in other shops. Q: What does the woman mean? 5. W: Sometimes when I’m busy, I let my 26-month-old daughter watch videos. Can this help her language development? M: It probably won’t hurt, but TV and videos are poor substitutes for parents’ involvement. Q: Which is a better way for babies’ language development according to the man? 6. M: I’m looking for a good place to have dinner with friends. Could you recommend a place? W: The best choice is probably Knutsford Terrace. It isn’t too far from here. Q: What are the two speakers mainly talking about? 7. M: Have you heard the news? The manager posted this month’s work schedule. W: He did? Where? Q: What does the woman mean? 8. M: Helen’s going to have a birthday party on Friday evening. She’s invited a lot of people. If everyone turns up, there will be a squeeze in her house. W: But a few people said they couldn’t go, so I think it should be OK. Q: What might be a problem for Helen’s birthday party according to the man? 9. W: That’s an awfully heavy sweater for a day like today. M: Well, I’m going to be at a lecture in the hall for most of this morning. And you know what the air conditioning is like in there. Q: What does the man imply? 10. W: Well, you are back from the cinema. How did you like the film?

M: It was well worth the ticket. But for your recommendation, I would have missed it. Q: What can we learn from the conversation? Section B Directions: In Section B, you will hear two short passages, and you will be asked three questions on each of the passages. The passages will be read twice, but the questions will be spoken only once. When you hear a question, read the four possible answers on your paper and decide which one would be the best answer to the question you have heard. Questions 11 through 13 are based on the following passage. All the beautiful fairy tales and masterpieces that you have encountered during your childhood remain as warm memories in your adulthood.

Who may find Reading Room most useful? 13. Which of the following is TRUE about Reading Room? Questions 14 through 16 are based on the following passage. Have you ever felt sleepy while working? If so, maybe your body or brain is trying to tell you it’s time for a break. Instead of ignoring such signals, maybe it’s time you should try working smarter, not harder. First, take breaks or even naps. Your brain is your most important tool when it comes to work, but it does have limitations. In fact, your brain can only remain focused for about 90 minutes at a time. That’s why it’s important to take 15-minute breaks every hour and a half to restore your attention. Better yet, if your company allows it, take a 20-minute nap once during the work day. Research suggests that napping helps you think more clearly and memorize things better. Second, stay mobile and work in blocks. Enterpriser and author Joel Runyon urges workers to try his “workstation popcorn” method. First, break down your office to-do list into clear tasks. Throughout the workday try moving to a different work area for each new task. That way you’re staying active and giving your mind a natural break between tasks. With a refreshed sense of focus, you’ll be working smarter than ever! (Now listen again, please)

I’d like to ask about the 4-day package tour from Newcastle to London. M: Sure. What ’s your question? W: I read your leaflet. The trip starts off every Thursday, right? Can I join the trip on July 30th? M: Let me check. July 30th is the coming Thursday. I’m afraid it ’s full. It ’s summer holiday now. Many people travel to London. W: Oh! How about the Thursday after? M: Yes, there’re still places on August 6th. How many people are going? W: My husband and our two children will go with me. Is there any discount for children under 12? M: Sorry, the price for children is the same. 720 pounds each person is already cheaper than other agencies. W: It ’s OK. I’d like to book it. M: Great! Tell me your name and your telephone number, please. W: Lisa Garcia and my telephone number is 197-6344-5829. M: OK.

Blanks 21 through 24 are based on the following conversation. W: Gosh! Have you seen this Richard? M: Seeing what? W: In the paper, it says there’s a man going round pretending he’s from the electricity board. He’s been calling at people’s homes, saying he’s come to check that their appliances are safe. Then while they are not looking, he steals their money, handbags, whatever and makes off with them. M: But you know Jane, it’s partly their own fault. You should never let anyone like that in unless you are expecting them. W: It’s all very well to say that, but someone comes to the door and says electricity or gas, and you automatically think they are ok, especially if they flash a card to you. M: Does this man have an ID then?

W: Yes, that ’s just it! It seems he used to work for the electricity board. So the police are warning people, especially senior citizens not to admit anyone unless they have an appointment. M: But what does he look like? Surely they must have a description. W: Oh, yes, they have. Let’s see. In his thirties, tall, dark hair, and a northern accent. M: Well, we should all pay special attention to such a man. (Now listen again, please) Complete the form. Write NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS for each answer.
