Let us begin by saying what does not cause our dreams. Our dreams do not come from "another world ". They are not messages from outside sources. They are not a look into the future, either. All our dreams have something to do with our feelings, fears, longings, wishes, needs and memories. If a person is hungry, or tired, or cold, his dreams may include a feeling of this kind . If the covers on your body, such as a quilt or a blanket, have slipped off your bed, you may dream that you are sleeping on the ice or snow. The material for the dream you will have tonight is likely to come from the experience you have today. So the subject of your dream usually comes from something that has an effect on you while you are sleeping (feeling of cold, discomfort, etc.) and it may also use your past experiences and the wishes and interests you have now. This is why children are likely to dream of fairies, older children of school examinations, hungry people of food, homesick soldiers of their families and prisoners of freedom. To show you how this is happening while you are asleep and how your needs and wishes can all be joined together in a dream, here is the story of an experiment. A man was asleep and the back of his hand was rubbed with a piece of absorbed cotton. He would dream he was in hospital and his charming girlfriend was visiting him, sitting on the bed and feeling gently his hands. There are some scientists who have made a special study of why we dream, what we dream and what those dreams mean. Their explanations of dreams, though a bit reasonable, are not accepted by everyone, but they offer an interesting approach to the problem. They believe that dreams are mostly expressions of wishes that do not come true. In other words, dreams are a way of having your wishes carried out.

The name might sound like that of a superhero, but Pooperman‘s task is much more basic. He, or she, is trying to shame the irresponsible dog owners of Lincoln into cleaning up behind their pets. Pooperman sticks notes into dog waste that owners have failed to clean up, warning them not to do it again. The typed notes read, "Don‘t leave it. You might be the one who steps in it the next time you walk this way."
第 - 6 - 页 共 18 页
While welcoming the purpose of the message, local government officers have rounded on Pooperman for producing even more rubbish. They say they would prefer it if people told them when there was a problem rather than adding to the rubbish problem. The city of Lincoln government‘s environmental officer, Tony Garner, said, "The public can help instead by observing dog owners to make sure they clean up after their pets, perhaps asking them to remove the waste if they try to leave it." "If this doesn‘t work we can take action — people can tell us who the owner is, give us a description of the owner and the dog, or simply tell us when and where they allow their dog to produce the waste." "We can then focus our patrols(巡逻) and take action against irresponsible owners." Sue Grace, a dog owner from Birchwood, Lincs, said, "I always clean up after my dog. It‘s very irresponsible if you don‘t." "There‘s nothing worse than stepping in dog waste or dragging your long lead through it, but I don‘t know that putting notes on it is the answer." "It‘s good that the local government is fighting against dog waste, though it might take one or two prosecutions(起诉) to make any difference."
40．What does Pooperman try to do?
A.To have irresponsible dog owners remove dog waste. B.To advise the local government to protect the environment. C.To praise responsible dog owners for protecting the environment. D.To remind the local government to deal with the dog waste problem.
41．What does the underlined part "rounded on" in Paragraph 4 mean?
C.Laughed at. .
42．According to the environmental officer, the public can
A.punish irresponsible dog owners when necessary B.report irresponsible dog owners to the police if possible C.force irresponsible dog owners to clean up dog waste in some way

D.request irresponsible dog owners to clean up dog waste then and there
43．The dog owner Sue Grace believes that
A.the local dog owners are irresponsible B.Pooperman is responsible and doing an effective job C.the law may play a role in fighting against dog waste D.the local government‘s fighting against dog waste is successful Skydive Greene County

In a computer age，a broadband Internet connection is very popular now．Whether cable or mobile broadband，today‘s connections are many times faster than those in the early days. Videos play smoothly, complex websites load quickly，and files download much faster than ten years ago．And the files are much bigger too． There‘s a hidden problem：You have to live near enough to a major city to get broadband Internet. If you don‘t，it's slow dial-up access for you. And for those living really far out，there may be no Internet access at all． Technology experts often talk about the ―last mile‖ problem，which refers to the difficulty of bringing Internet access to remote locations．In cities and suburbs(郊区)，it's relatively easy to provide access for everyone．It is much more difficult to deliver access to those living far from cities，especially in developing countries．Internet service providers, for their part，have been reluctant to provide access to sparsely(稀疏地)populated areas．The handful of Internet users they would reach wouldn‘t cover the expense. But every year, technological advancements allow of more and more Internet users. Most broadband connections today run over existing cable TV and telephone lines although these technologies aren‘t available everywhere． Some companies have delivered the Internet over standard power lines. Advancements in cheaper more efficient fiber optics cables(光纤电缆)promise to bring extremely fast Internet connections to more users． Still, the―last mile‖problem remains hard to deal with． There will always be somewhere that doesn‘t have an affordable broadband connection．But someday that might not matter．If the rapid progress in cell phone technology is any indication，it may not be too long before an Internet connection simply follows you wherever you go.

49．Paragraph 4 mainly tells us that technological advancements_______.
A.make TV and telephone available everywhere B.bring great change to people‘s everyday life C.bring faster Internet connections to users D.make it possible for more people to use the Internet
50．What may eventually settle the―last mile‖problem?
A.The broadband connection‘s getting faster． B.The rapid progress in cell phone technology． C.More and more Internet connections． D.More and more Internet users.
51．The best title for this passage may be________．
A.Internet Connection Problems C.Progress in Internet Connections

My friend had mentioned the other day that her father had a lot of children's toys he was looking to give away. She knew I have a three-year-old daughter so she thought of me first. I told her I would love it if I could get some nice things for my daughter, which I wouldn't otherwise have been able to afford. When I met her father, he began to explain he was too poor once and that he would hate to throw away things that can be very useful.
第 - 11 - 页 共 18 页
Before he showed me what he was giving away, I thought the toys would be mostly lego's(乐高积木) or things like that. When he was showing me around I saw a bed, a slide, a kitchen set and many other things that just blew my mind. He told me to write a list of everything my daughter could use and as my eyes were wide, he told me not to feel guilty. He said I was helping him by getting rid of the stuff. As I was looking around I did feel guilty, but I tried to remain more grateful than guilty. Every time I tried to thank him for giving me and my daughter all this wonderful stuff he would thank me right back. I wanted to believe that he was just thanking me so that I wouldn't feel so guilty but in reality I believe that he was as grateful as I was that these toys would be put to good use. In the eyes of charity, it makes sense to feel grateful, but guilt is just as normal. I know that we could have lived without a slide, which is why I do feel guilty, but I am grateful all the same because my daughter really does enjoy all these nice things!
52．Why did the old man want to give away his toys?
A.He wanted to help those poor children. B.He was wealthy enough to buy new toys. C.He wanted to make full use of those toys. D.He needed some space for more useful things.
53．In the writer's opinion, the old man felt grateful because________.
A.he wanted to make her more guilty C.the toys would be put to good use
54．What can we know from the passage?
B.he wanted her to take the toys quickly D.he finally got rid of the stuff
A.The writer took all the toys home. B.The old man was a kind and thoughtful person C.The writer wanted to refuse the stuff when she first saw them. D.The writer's daughter enjoyed the slide most among all the stuff.
55．How did the writer feel when given the stuff?
A.Guilty and honored.
B.Grateful and respected.

四、信息匹配：共 5 题 每题 2 分 共 10 分 下面文章中有 5 处需要添加小标题，请从以下选项中选出符合各段意思的小标题，并在答题 卡上将该项涂黑,选项中一项为多余选项。 A. Draw on the positives. B. Deal with the pain. C. Find support from others. D. Use rejection to your advantage. E. Don‘t let negative feelings hold you down. F. Keep track of your thoughts. Harry Potter was rejected. So were Bella and Edward. If authors J.K. Rowling and Stephenie Meyer hadn‘t kept trying with publisher after publisher, we‘d all have missed out on some great adventures. Life is about going for things. And when we do, rejection is always a possibility. The better we get at dealing with rejection, the less it affects us. So how can you build that ability to cope? Here are some ideas: 56 Coping well with rejection involves working with two things: how you feel and what you think. Let‘s start with feelings: If you get rejected, acknowledge it to yourself. Don‘t try to brush off the hurt or pretend it‘s not painful. Instead of thinking ―I shouldn‘t feel this way,‖ think about how normal it is to feel like you do, given your situation. Notice how intense your feelings are. Did this rejection upset you a lot? Or just a little? Cry if you want to or tell someone else what happened and how you feel about it. 57
第 - 13 - 页 共 18 页
Now on to what you think: Consider how you‘re explaining the rejection to yourself. Are you being too hard on yourself? It‘s natural to wonder, ―Why did this happen?‖ When you give yourself an explanation, be careful to stick to the facts. Tell yourself: ―I got turned down for prom because the person didn‘t want to go with me.‖ Don‘t tell yourself: ―I got turned down because I‘m not attractive‖ or ―I‘m such a loser.‖ These aren‘t facts. They‘re imagining a reason, reading too much into a situation. If thoughts like these start creeping into your mind, shut them down. 59 Tell yourself: ―OK, so I got rejected this time. Maybe next time, I‘ll get a ?yes‘ ‖ or ―Oh, well. This is what happened. I don‘t like it. But everyone gets rejected – and I can try again.‖ Think about what you‘re good at and what‘s good about you. Remember times when you‘ve been accepted, when you made the cut, when someone told you ―yes.‖ Think of all the people who like you and support you. Remind yourself that you can handle the rejection. Even though you were turned down now, there will be another opportunity, another time. 60 A rejection is a chance to consider if there are things we can work on. It‘s OK to think about whether there‘s room for improvement or if your goals were higher than your skills. If your skills weren‘t strong enough this time, maybe you need to work on your game, your studies, or whatever it takes to improve your chances of getting accepted next time. Use the rejection as an opportunity for self-improvement.
