Many of the most damaging types of weather begin quickly, strike suddenly, and disappear rapidly, destroying small areas while leaving neighboring areas untouched. Such event as a tornado(龙卷风) struck the northeastern part of Edmonton, Alberta, in July 1987. Total damages from the tornado went beyond $250 million, the highest ever for any Canadian storm. Traditional computer models of the atmosphere have limited value in predicting short-lived local storms like the Edmonton tornado, because the available weather data are generally not detailed enough to allow computers to study carefully the slight atmospheric changes that come before these storms. In most nations, for example, weather-balloon observations are taken just once every twelve hours at places separated by hundreds of miles. With such limited data, traditional forecasting models do a much better job predicting general weather conditions over large areas than they do forecasting specific local events. Until recently, the observation intensive ( 十 分 细 致 ) method needed for exact, very short-range forecasts, or ―Nowcasts,‖ was not possible. The cost of equipping and operating many thousands of conventional weather stations was extremely high, and the difficulties concerned in rapidly collecting and processing the weather data from such a network were hard to overcome. Fortunately, scientific and technological advances have overcome most of these problems. Radar(雷达) systems and satellites are all able to make detailed, nearly continuous observation over large areas at a lower cost. Communications satellites can send out data around the world cheaply and immediately, and modern computers can quickly collect and analyze this large amount of weather information. Meteorologists(气象学者) and computer scientists now work together to design computer programs and video equipment able to change weather data into words and graphic displays(图解) that forecasters can understand easily and quickly. As meteorologists have begun using these new technologies in weather forecasting offices, nowcasting is becoming a reality. 56. Why can’t traditional computer models predict short-lived local storms? A. The weather data people collect are often wrong. B. Detailed weather data in some small areas are not available. C. The computers are not advanced enough to predict them. D. The computers are not used to forecast specific local events. 57. The word ―Nowcast‖ in Paragraph 3 means . A. a network to collect storm data B. a way of collecting weather data C. a more advanced system of weather observation D. a forecast which can predict weather in the small area 58. What can make ―Nowcasts‖ a reality according to the passage? A. Scientific and technological advances. B. Advanced computer programs. C. Computer scientists. D. Meteorologists. B When I learned that my 71-year-old mother was playing Scrabble – a word game – against herself, I knew I had to do something. My husband suggested we give her a computer to play against. I wasn’t sure my mother was ready for it. After all, it had taken 10 years to persuade her to buy an electric cooker. Even so, we packed up our old computer and delivered it to my parents’ home. And so began my mother’s adventure in the world of computers. It also marked the beginning of an unusual teaching task for me. I’ve taught people of all ages, but I never thought I would be teaching my mother how to do anything. She has been the
one teaching me all my life: to cool and sew; to enjoy the good times and put up with the bad. Now it was my turn to give something back. It wasn’t easy at the beginning. There was so much to explain and to introduce. Slowly but surely, my mother caught on, making notes in a little notebook. After a few months of Scrabble and other games, I decided it was time to introduce her to word processing(文字处理). This proved to be a bigger challenge(挑战) to her, so I gave her some homework I asked her to write me a letter, using different letter types, colors and spaces. ―Are you demanding with your kindergarten pupils?‖ she asked. ―No, of course not,‖ I said. ―They already know how to use a computer.‖ My mother isn’t the only one experiencing a fast personal growth period. Thanks to the computer, my father has finally got over his phone allergy(过敏反应). For as long as I can remember, any time I called, my mother would answer. Dad and I have had more phone conversations in the last two months than we’ve had in the past 20 years. 59. What does the author do? A. She is a cook. B. She is a teacher. C. She is a housewife. D. She is a computer engineer. 60. The author decided to give her mother a computer____________. A. to let her have more chances to write letters B. to support her in doing her homework C. to help her through the bad times D. to make her life more enjoyable 61. The author asked her mother to write her a letter______________ . A. because her mother had stopped using the telephone B. because she wanted to keep in touch with her mother C. so that her mother could practice what she had learned D. so that mother could be free from housework 62. After the computer was brought home, the author’s father_____________. A. lost interest in cooking B. took more phone calls C. played more games D. began to use it C Native English Teachers Wanted at 7,500 yuan Xiamen Sunny Bilingual and Art Kindergarten is located in a top residential area in Xiamen City, Fujian Province.

All applicants will be informed of the kindergarten’s choice. D Thirteen, for me, was a challenging year. My parents divorced and I moved to a new town with my father, far from my old family and friends. I was terribly lonely and would cry myself to sleep each night. To ease my sadness, my father purchased an old horse for me at a local auction. I named him Cowboy. Cowboy was without a doubt the ugliest horse in the world. But I didn’t care. I loved him beyond all reason. I joined a riding club and suffered rude comments and mean snickers about Cowboy’s looks. I never let on about how I felt, but deep inside, my heart was breaking. The other members rode beautiful, registered horses. When Cowboy and I entered the events where the horse is judged on appearance, we were
quickly shown the gate. No amount of preparation and love would turn Cowboy into a beauty. My only chance to compete would be in the speed events. I chose the jumping race.? One girl named Becky rode a big brown horse in the race events. She always won the blue ribbons. Needless to say, she didn’t feel threatened when I competed against her at the next show. She didn’t need to. I came in next to last. The stinging memory of Becky’s smirks made me determined to beat her. For the whole next month I woke up early every day and rode Cowboy five miles to the arena (赛马场). We practiced running and jumping for hours in the hot sun and then I would walk Cowboy home totally exhausted. All of our hard work didn’t make me feel confident by the time the show came. I sat at the gate and sweated it out while I watched Becky and her horse charge through the course and finish in first place. My turn finally came. I put on my hat, rubbed Cowboy’s neck and entered the arena. At the signal, we dashed toward the first fence, jumped it without trouble and raced on to the next one. Cowboy then flew over the second, third and fourth fences like a bird and I turned him toward the finish line. As we crossed the line the crowd was shocked into silence. Cowboy and I had beaten Becky and her fancy horse by two seconds! I gained much more than a blue ribbon that day. At thirteen, I realized that no matter what the odds, I’d always come out a winner if I wanted something badly enough to work for it. 67. The underlined expression "shown the gate" (paragraph 3) most probably means ______. A. told how to enter the arena B. shown how to make the horse beautiful C. removed from the competition early D. told to enter the timed-speed events 68. When the final race finished, nobody cheered because . A. the audience didn’t like Cowboy B. people envied the writer C. the win was unexpected? D. the writer bad run out of time 69. Why was the writer not confident of victory? A. He was an inexperienced rider. B. He had not practiced enough. C. He believed he was unpopular with the crowd. D. He thought his horse wasn’t so good as the others. 70. What did the writer learn from his experience? A. Life can sometimes be unfair. B. Anything is possible if one tries hard enough. C. A positive attitude will bring success. D. One should not make judgments based on appearance.
