Chinese people are now spending more time surfing the net than watching TV, according to results of a survey by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) published Thursday. The survey, of citizens of five Chinese cities, found that 79 percent of interviewees use the internet for information, and 55.1 percent to read news on the internet. About 63 percent of the interviewees use e-mail. The average times spent surfing the net and watching TV were 2.73 hours and 1.29hours, respectively. Only 10.4 percent reported use the internet primarily to send and receive email; 65.9 percent read online news; 62.2 quite often play games on-line. More and more people have taken an interest in the entertainment opportunities online. Up to 56.5 percent of interviewees quite often download music, and 53.5 percent get entertainment messages from the internet. Yet the survey found that television is still the dominant mass medium. Seventy-nine percent of interviewees choose to watch TV to get information, and another 75 percent take newspapers as important as TV. Five major web sites in the Chinese language, namely Sina, Sohu, Netease, Baidu and Yahoo are still ranked top ones by web users, and those that voted for Sina as the best among them were 30.9 percent. Authorized statistics showed that web users in China have already exceeded 100 million, second to that of the United States. 重难点单词和词组： ③ respectively 各自地 ②primarily 首先，走初 ③dominant 占优势的 ④exceed 超过，胜过 ⑤authorized 权威的 ⑥CASS 中国社科院

A study done by University of Michigan，has shown information that seems to be true for the general population. Babies are the most cold infected group，generally more than six colds in their first year. Boys have more colds than girls up to the age of three. After three，girls are easier to get infected with cold than boys，and teenage girls get three colds a year to boys’ two. The general cold infections continue to get less into adults. Elderly people who are in good health have as few as one or two colds every year. One interesting thing is found among people in their twenties，especially women，who show a rise in cold infection，because people in this age group are most likely to have young children. The study has also found that economy plays an important role as well. With more and more income，the frequency at which colds are reported in the family is getting lower and lower. Families with the lowest income usually suffer about a third ally forces people to live in rooms more crowded than rooms owned by richer people，and the crowding usually leads to more chances for the cold virus to travel from person to person. Low income may also have an effect on our diet .Many scientists believe that a poorer diet usually leads into more possibilities of cold infection. 5．Which of the age groups has the highest frequency of cold infection? A．Small babies. B．Teenage boys. C．Adult women. D． Elderly people. 6．The purpose of writing this passage is to________. A．give the readers some tips to avoid cold infection B．show a carefulmade study on cold infection C．report the major reasons leading to cold infection D．describe all the possible dangers of cold infection 7．How does economy play an important role in cold infection? A．Families with lower income suffer less from cold infection. B．People who have lower income enjoy living in crowded rooms. C．Rich families can have better nutrition and never get infected. D．People with higher income have fewer chances of infection. 8．From the passage we can infer that________. A．age is the only important factor that connects with colds B．families with the highest income will more easily get infected C．people have lower frequency of infection as they grow older D. a better diet may help people to fight against cold infection
IS IT TIME TO GET MP3? Your computer has been playing music for years, one CD at a time. Now hundreds of songs can be stored in your PC (personal computer) if they’re in the MP3 format. What is it? MP3 compresses music into small computer friendly files. You access MP3 music several ways : Music can be downloaded from websites that have converted vast music libraries into MP3. Or you can prerecord CDs into your PC and convert songs in minutes into MP3. Once MP3 music is on your PC’s hard drive, you can play it through your computer’s speakers, “burn” it onto blank CDs or exchange MP3 files with friends using E-mail. How much? Software needed to play and convert MP3 music is often free. It comes preinstalled on most new computers or can be downloaded from many websites, including MP3. com. Some MP3 sites are free. Just type “MP3 sites” into any search engine. The popular MP3 players start at around $50and can hold hundreds of songs. A blank CD on which you can record music costs about a dollar. Advantages MP3 turns your home PC into a tape recorder. Tiny MP3 players are the size of a card, making it easy to take hundreds of songs with you. Disadvantages You may find that music at many sites is limited. And some only allow you to listen rather than download offerings. Others let you download music that then can’t be copied to MP3 players. And a growing number of new CDs make it impossible to copy songs to a computer. ①format 格式 ②compress 压缩 ③convert 转变 ④prerecord 预先录下 ⑤preinstall 预先安装 ⑥CD 激光唱片 ⑦hard drive 硬盘 ⑧rather than 而不是 9.
