Every year,people from every corner of the world travel to Australia to meet the kangaroo—the lovely,unuaural and special Australian animal that jumps all over this sunburnt continennt.There is a young kangaroo that is lucky to be alive today,thanks to meeting a pair of New South Wales teenagers.
Nick Heath and Jack Donnelly were riding their motorbikes in the bush outside Sydney on Sunday when they came across a kangaroo stuck in the mud(泥).The boys were lucky enough to see the head of the animal sticking out of the mud at Agnes Banks next the Mepean River in southwest Sydney.
The animal was clearly in pain but the boys couldn’t reach it so they raced home to get a rope.When they returned,Mr.Donnelly tied the rope around his waist(腰)and walked into the thick mud to get hold of the kangaroo while his friend then pulled them about30m to safety.
Appearing on Today this morning,the young men retold their story.
“The kangaroo’s life was important to us,so we pulled out all the stops to rescue it.”Mr. Heath said.
“We’re proud of what we did.If we see something like that again,we’ll do it all over.”Mr Heath added.
The animal,which was not in great health,after being saved,was handed to Wildlife Rescue Organization.It’s believed that it’s very hot and the kangaroo was likely searching for water in the dry conditions when it got stuck in the mud.
As for the heroes of the story,they’re glad to have been in the right place at the right time to help the animal and don’t care about the attention it’s brought.

Many of us wish we would have longer weekend,but for about18,000students in Colorado,that wish is coming true.A school district outside Denver has decided to shorten its week to four days—from Tuesday to Friday,and the first school year on this new timetable just started,CBS Denver reports.It began on Tuesday,August14,because the day students get off is everyone’s least favorite:Monday.
Although this may sound like a dream come true,it means students will have to sit though longer school days to work more for the hours they’ve lost,according to The Denver Post.So the timetable seems more crowded than ever.
The decision wasn’t made just to give students more days off,though:it had practical purpose.The district says that it will save$1million by not having buses on Mondays and spending less on things like electricity and water.That means a lot to the school.However, there are different voice.Parents may pick up some the cost of this change,though,since many will now need to stay home with their kids.If they go to work,they have to find people to take care of their children.
This isn’t the first district in the state to introduce a four—day week:55%of the state’s schools do this,but most of them are in the countryside,according to The Denver Post. Several school in Oklahoma made the some move earlier this year,and some them told CBS News Reports that more teachers wanted to teach there after the change.Most of these teachers have a lot of teaching experience.About560districts in timetable influence students’s ferformance.
53．What happens to the students in Colorado?
A.They have shorter summer holidays.
B.They go to school every day.
C.They have classes only on Monday.
D.They have longer weekend.
54．What does the underlined phrase“pick up”in Paragraph3mean?
55．Why do more teachers want to come to Oklahoma?
A.They would like to work here with four-day week.
B.They’ll be given more money than those in other states.
C.Students are much more money creative in class in this place.
D.Students behave better because of longer weekends.
56．What can we infer from the last paragraph?
A.Students need to study harder to make up for the time.
B.Parents may spend more time and money on their children.
C.People in Colorado speak with one voice when facing the decision.
D.It’s not clear whether the new timetable is good for students or not.
53．细节理解。根据文中Many of us wish we would have longer weekend,but for about 18,000students in Colorado,that wish is coming true.可知，他们会有跟唱的周末。故选D 54．词句猜测。根据文中some the cost of this change,though,since many will now need to stay home with their kids.If they go to work,they have to find people to take care of their children.可知，他们可能花费的更多。pick up在这里的意思是“支付”，故选B。

Reading is getting mre popular among young Chinese.A new survey says that85%of young people in China read at least1book last year.The number of young people who are reading has been rising in recent years,especially for teenagers,who read an average(平均)
The data(数据)shows that teenagers spend much more time reading from school textbooks to some other reading materials,such as novels,e-books,magazines and so on.But younger children(ages2—8)are mainly reading for fun.Compared with the past,the time teenagers spend on pleasure reading has dropped.
When it comes to technology and reading,the surver suggests little.It does point out that many parents control the time of electronic reading,mainly because of worrying about increased screen time.However,most Chinese parents are helping their children to develop a reading habit.They are served as examples for their children.More than70%of Chinese parents spend at least20minutes a day reading to their children aged0to8years old,and visit bookstores with them an average of three times a year.Data shows that kids and teens who do a lot of reading,compared to those who don’t like reading,have more books in the home,and more books brought for them.Their parents read more often,and would like to spare time to read with them.
When was the last time you read a book?If you’re one of the countless people who don’t develop a habit of reading,you might be missing out.Everything you read fill your head with new bits of information,and you never know then it might be useful.The more knowledge you have,the better equipped you are to deal with any shallenge you’ll face.Remember that although you might lose something else,knowledge can never be taken away from you.
Now open a book,and feed your soul.
57．Why do many parents control the time of their children’s electronic reading?
A.E-books are expensive.
B.It may harm children’s health.
C.It’s very hard to order.
D.It could be a waste of time.
58．How should parents encourage their children to read more?
A.Talk with their teachers to encourage them in developing reading habits.
