The poaching, or illegal killing,of rhinos(犀牛) in South Africa is growing worse each year．The government recently reported that a record number of rhinos were poached in 2014,a year which had more rhino killings in South Africa than ever before． The World Wildlife Fund, or WWF,says about 20,000 rhinos live in South Africa．That is more than 80 percent of the rhinos in the world．Edna Molewa,South Africa’s environmental issues minister,says,“During 2014,we are sad to say this,1,215 rhinos were killed．This is a rise in the number of poached rhinos from 1004 in 2013 and indeed very worrying．” The animals are hunted for their horns(犀牛角)．Many people in Asia believe the horn has curing power, which drives poachers,at all costs,mad for more horns．But there
is no scientific evidence for this belief．The horn is made of keratin．That is the same thing as human hair,fingernails and toenails． Ms. Mo1ewa said 386 suspected poachers were arrested last year,an increase from the year before．But rhino protection workers say poachers often go unpunished after arrest．South Africa’s legal system is ineffective．Ms.Molewa said more needs to be done and South Africa is taking strong measures to protect rhinos．The efforts include moving some of the animals to secret places in neighboring countries． “Now approximately 100 rhinos have been moved to neighboring states in the SADC region during 2014 and 200 more rhinos will be moved this year” Molewa said． Jo Shaw,the rhino program manager at the WWF,said,“we’re talking about a loss of a hundred rhinos a month．Or more than three a day．We really need to see effective action not just at a national level but internationally．”She says officials should find the criminal groups responsible for the poaching and punish them．Government
officials are to meet in Botswana in March at the Inter-governmental Conference on Illegal Wildlife Trade. 21．What do we know about rhinos? A．Half of the rhinos live in South Africa． B．Less than 1,000 rhinos were killed in 2013． C．The killing reached the highest point in 2014． D．There are only 20,000 rhinos left in the world． 22．What is the main reason for people to hunt rhinos? A．To get more keratin． B．To protect the farmland．
C．To use them for decoration． D．To make money from horns． 23．Jo Shaw thinks that_________． A．many criminal groups are well organized B．new laws are needed to punish the killers C．rhino protection needs international cooperation D．conferences about protecting rhinos are to be held every year 24．What can we infer from the text? A．Rhino protection has a long way to go． B．No one would like to buy horns in the future．
C．The illegal killing of rhinos will soon disappear． D．Rhinos living in South Africa will move to other countries． B Do you know of anyone who uses the truth to deceive(欺骗)? When someone tells you something that is true,but leaves out important information that should be included, he can give you a false picture． For example,someone might say , “I just won a hundred dollars on the lottery(彩 票)．It was great．I took that dollar ticket back to the store and turned it in for one hundred dollars!” This guy's a winner,right? Maybe,maybe not．We then discover that he bought $ 200 worth of tickets,and only one was a winner．He’s really a big loser! He didn’t say anything that was false,but he left out important information on purpose．That’s called a half-truth．Half truths are not technically lies,but they are just as dishonest． Some politicians often use this trick．Let’s say that during Governor Smith’s last term,her state lost one million jobs and gained three million jobs．Then she seeks another term. One of her opponents(对手)says,“During Governor Smith’s term, the state lost one million jobs!” That’s true．However, an honest statement would have been, “During Governor Smith's term,the state had a net gain of two million jobs．’’ Advertisers(广告商) will sometimes use half-truths．It’s against the law to make false statements so they try to mislead you with the truth．An advertisement might say,“Nine out of ten doctors advised their patients to take Yucky Pills to cure
toothache．”It fails to mention that they only asked ten doctors and nine of them work for the Yucky Company． This kind of deception happens too often．It’s a sad fact of life：Lies are lies,and sometimes the truth can lie as well． 25．We may infer that the author believes people should A．buy lottery tickets if possible half-truths C．be careful about what they are told D．not trust the Yucky Company
B．make use of
26．What do the underlined words “net gain” in Paragraph 5 mean? A．final increase C．1arge share B．big advantage D．total number
27．What can we know from the example of the Yucky Pill advertisement? A．False statements are easy to see through． B．Half-truths are often used to mislead people． C．Doctors like to act in advertisements． D．Advertisements are based on facts． 28．Which of the following best expresses the main idea of the passage? A．He’s really a big loser! B．Sometimes the truth can lie as well． C．Advertisers will sometimes use half truths． D．It’s against the law to make false statements． C The Tropical Paradise Holiday Welcome to St Anna, our tropical paradise just off the coast of Latin America.

D Can you imagine a world without chocolate? It's not something I'd 1ike to do．so I was relieved to read that there’s a university with a program me to safeguard the future of chocolate! The University of Reading,in England,has just opened a new clearing house for all the world’s new cocoa varieties．They must be quarantined(隔离检疫)before they can be grown．Why? Cocoa production hit a record high of 4.4 million tons last year but about 30％of the precious crop is regularly lost to pests and diseases．Now we don’t want that,do we? Demand for chocolate has been increasing faster than the world supply of cocoa and researchers think that new varieties are key to solving this problem． D. Departure time.
The University of Reading has been protecting the quality of the new crops since 1985,after it took over the task from the Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew,London．And it has improved its facilities．The leader of the institution’s cocoa project,Professor Paul Hadley,says,“One of the main issues concerning cocoa improvement is the supply of reliably clean,healthy,interesting cocoa material．” The cocoa centre has a collection of 400 plant varieties and their greenhouse uses a lot of energy to keep them in tropical conditions．After up to two years in seeds are sent to some 20 countries,including several in cocoa used for chocolate worldwide comes economy：it employs about two

West Africa．That’s where 75％of the
from．The crop is extremely important for the local million people.
Professor Hadley says he works with a small team of skilled technicians who look after the collection．And more of us seem to count on them now． The scientist says,“there is some concern within the industry that demand is increasing constantly,particularly in countries like China,where the standard of living is increasing and people are getting a taste for different chocolates.”

When I first learn to write in English, I ran into much difficulties. The main problem was that I always thought in Chinese and tried to translate into my own language everything which I came across while I was reading. My teacher advised myself to keep a diary. I followed his advices and put down 100 words or so each day. Soon I began to enjoy talk to myself as I was learning to express myself with simple English.

We have been asked about our opinions on opening iPad classrooms. I am in favor
of this plan for the following reasons. To begin with, everyone learns differently. Students can customize their iPad with materials that fit their level and learning style, and thus tailor it to different needs. Moreover, when connected to the Internet, students can interact with teachers and classmates about what they learn more conveniently. For the sake of environmental protection, opening iPad classrooms is a good way to save trees that we have been cutting down for paper. Most importantly, I believe students will develop their interests in the subjects by enjoying a new way of learning. I hope you would take my ideas into consideration and we look forward to attending an iPad class. Yours sincerely, Li Hua
