The 47-year-old man from Niagara Falls was stuck in his car on the highway for almost eight days after his vehicle was accidentally pushed to the side of the road and covered with snow by workers employed to remove the snow from the streets. Driving on the Interstate Highway 190 during the worst of the snowstorm, Mr. Hanson decided to pull over his old 1993 Volkswagen Passat to the side of the road and wait for the weather conditions to improve. He remained motionless for approximately five hours before a snow plow arrived to clear the way. Unfortunately for the poor man, the driver of the gigantic snow removal vehicle did not see the small car, pushing it into the ditch and covering it with more than 2 meters of snow. Fortunately for the father of two children, the snow that was stacked over his vehicle was not very dense and allowed for enough fresh air to get through to enable him to survive. He was able to drink water that he obtained by melting snow with his lighter in an aluminum coffee cup, and he ate the few items of groceries he had bought before going home. ―If I had known I would be stuck for eight days, I would have bought more than a jar of dill pickles(咸菜), a bottle of ketchup and two sticks of beef jerky(牛肉干),‖ said the survivor with a smile. Thomas Hanson had almost lost all hope of being rescued when his car was hit once again this morning by another snow plow, which revealed the poor man’s location. 4. What caused Thomas James Hanson to fall into the ditch according to the passage? A. His drunk driving. B. The strong wind. C. The slippery road. D. A snow removal vehicle. 5.

Thomas James Hanson – a Black Sheep in the Snow D. Wonderful Eight Days of Experience in the Snow C The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is a private research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, founded in 1861 in response to the increasing industrialization of the United States. The institute stressed laboratory instruction in applied science and engineering. MIT’s early emphasis on applied technology at the undergraduate and graduate levels led to close cooperation with industry. Curricular reforms under Karl Compton and Vannevar Bush in the 1930s emphasized basic science. MIT was elected to the Association of American Universities in 1934. Today, the institute comprises various academic departments with a strong emphasis on scientific, engineering, and technological education and research. MIT is one of the most selective higher learning institutions, and received 18,357 undergraduate applicants for the class of 2018 — only admitting 1,419, an acceptance rate of 7.73%. MIT’s 168-acre campus spans approximately a mile of the north side of the Charles River basin in the city of Cambridge. The campus is divided roughly in half by Massachusetts Avenue, with most dormitories and student life facilities to the west and most academic buildings to the east. MIT’s on-campus nuclear reactor is one of the most powerful university-based nuclear reactors in the United States. In 1999 Bill Gates donated $20 million to MIT for the construction of computer laboratory named the ―William H. Gates Building‖. While Microsoft had previously given financial support to the institution, this was the first personal donation received from Gates. Other notable campus facilities include a pressurized wind tunnel and a towing tank for testing ship and ocean structure designs. 8. From the passage, we know MIT _______. A. is a public research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. B. became a member of the Association of American Universities in 1934 C. was founded to improve the development of agriculture of the United States D. at present puts emphasis on applied technology 9.

A. present Bill Gate’s contributions to MIT B. encourage more students to apply to MIT C. give a brief introduction of MIT D. attract more visitors to Massachusetts D See a cellphone cover that you like on Taobao? Forget about placing an order, paying the bill online and waiting for days for it to be delivered to you. In the near future, you'll be able to get it in minutes just by hitting ―print‖ on your computer. You might find it hard to believe that you could actually ―print‖ an object like you would a picture. But it is not that hard to understand how it would work. Just as a traditional printer sprays (喷) ink onto paper line by line, modern 3D printers spread material onto a surface layer by layer, from the bottom to the top, gradually building up a shape. Instead of ink, the materials the 3D printer uses are mainly plastic, resin(树脂) and certain metals. The thinner each layer is—from a millimetre to less than the width of a hair—the smoother and finer the object will be. This may sound like a completely new technology, but the truth is that 3D printing has been around since the late 1980s. Back then, it was barely affordable for most people, so few knew about it. Last year, though, saw a big change in the 3D printing industry—printers became much cheaper. For example, 10 years ago a desktop 3D printer might have cost ￡20，000, while now they cost only about ￡1，000, according to the BBC. Taken out of the factory and introduced to more diverse and common uses, 3D printing can create just about anything you can think of—flutes (笛子), bikinis, jewelry, aircraft parts and even human organs. In fact, scientists from Cornell University in New York have just made an artificial ear using a 3D printer, according to Science Daily. The fake ear looks and acts exactly like a natural one. However, as 3D printing becomes more common, it may bring about certain problems—such as piracy. ―Once you can download a coffee maker, or print out a new set of kitchen utensils (餐具) on your personal 3D printer, who will visit a retail (零售的) store again？‖ an expert in 3D printing told Forbes News. Even more frightening, what if anyone in the world could use a 3D printer to print out a fully functioning gun? 12. According to the article, in the future, the 3D printing technology will _______. A. enable people to make better purchases online B. change the way we make many products C. be applied as widely in our daily life as computers D. shorten the time it takes for people to get what they buy online 13. What happened in the 3D printing industry last year? A. The 3D printing technology was taken out of the factory.

How is the last paragraph developed? A. By giving examples. B. By making comparisons. C. By analyzing the cause and effect. D. By presenting research findings. 15. What is the best title of the passage? A. Great Demand for 3D Printers B. Technology in the Future C. Online Shopping Disappearing D.

By examining the work habits of over 150 greatest writers and artists and scientists, the researchers including Standford Professor Jeffrey Pfeffer found that high achievers like Robert Moses turn out to be all alike: Busy ! Busy! 16 In a study of general managers in industry, John Kotter reported that many of them worked 60 to 65 hours per week—which translates into at least six 10-hour days. The ability and willingness to work difficult and tiring hours has characterized many powerful figures. Energy and strength provide many advantages to those seeking to build power. Just Say No! The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say ―no‖ to almost everything. And that’s what gives them the time to accomplish so much. 17 And focus means saying ―no‖ to a lot of distractions(分神). Know What You Are! Ignore your weakness and keep improving your strengths. Don’t waste time exploring skill areas where you have little competence. Instead, focus on—and build on—your strengths. 18 . Create Good Luck! Luck is not magical—there is a science to it. Richard Wiseman studied lucky people for his book Luck Factor, and broke down what they do right. 19 By being more outgoing, open to new ideas, following the feeling that something is true, being optimistic, lucky people create possibilities. Does applying these principles to your life actually work? Wiseman created a ―luck school‖ to test the ideas—and it was a success. In total, 80 percent of people who attended Luck School said that their luck had increased. 20 .
