At one point along an open highway, I came to a crossroad with a traffic light. I was alone on the road by now, but as I 34 the light, it turned red and I braked to a stop. I looked left, right and behind me. Nothing. Not a car, no 35 of headlights, but there I sat, waiting for t h e l i g h t t o

I started wondering why I 37 to run the light. I was not afraid of being 38 , because there was obviously no policeman around, and there certainly would have been no 39 in going through it.

Like most of us, I‘m more likely to be 43 from doing something bad by the social custom that disagrees with it than by any law 44 it.

It‘s amazing that we ever 45 each other to do the right thing, isn‘t it? And we do, too. Trust is our first 46 . We have to make a deliberate effort to mistrust someone.

The whole thing we have going for us would 47 apart if we didn‘t trust each other most of the time. It happens often that we don‘t act in a 48 manner, but we all consider it unusual, and we‘re angry or 49 with the person or organization that violates(侵犯) the trust we have in them.

I was so 50 of myself for stopping for the red light that night.

become the world‘s most popular top ice cream brand. In the United States, its market share is 6.1%, 1% in France, 4.6% in Japan, 4% in Singapore and 5% in Hong Kong.

TransLink is urging customers to avoid non-essential travel today and to stay home where possible in the difficult weather conditions.

TransLink chief executive officer Peter Strachan said bus and train services were continuing to run where possible, however all CityCat and CityFerry services had been cancelled until further notice.

―These are extremely difficult conditions for South East Queensland –we are running essential services where possible but safety remains to be the most important,‖ Mr Strachan said.

―Severe weather and associated flooding has impacted on all modes of public transport, with bus, ferry and train services all impacted to varying degrees.

―If you are planning to use public transport at anytime ov er the next few days, then I would recommend you check that your intended service is still running.‖

Service disruptions (中断) for today include:

●City network trains running hourly on all lines.

●Bus diversions, delays and cancellations in some regions, particularly across Brisbane, Ipswich and the Sunshine Coast.

●CityCat and CityFerry services cancelled.

Queensland Rail Chief Executive Officer Paul Scurrah said rising waterways had closed some train lines, and road closures and damage to property throughout the South-East had

contributed to a shortage of available rail employees.

―We intend to run trains hourly on all lines, si milar to the timetable we operate on Christmas Day. We will also be looking to run other additional services to meet demand as required. At this stage we will run services stopping at all stations which will depart at the same time on the hour, however, this is all subject to the weather conditions and the availability of traincrew.‖

Mr Scurrah encouraged all customers to visit the Translink website for specific departure times for their station, and asked for patience in the event of delays.

―Queensland Ra il appreciates that reduced services may cause disruptions but it is simply unavoidable. We have a dedicated and experienced team monitoring the situation around the clock and will be working to reopen the network as soon as practicably possible,‖ Mr Scurr ah said.

Are you a media addict who would go mad after two hours without TV, friend requests, exciting online games and your mobile – or would you easily survive?

Recently, university students around the world were asked to volunteer in a global experiment called Unplugged. It was designed to see how young people would react if they were asked to observe a total media ban by unplugging all forms of media devices for 24 hours.

Unplugged is being run by Dr Roman Gerodimos, a lecturer in Communication and Journalism at Bournemouth University. The experiment is now o ver but he doesn‘t yet know the full findings. However, during the experiment, Dr Gerodimos said there were already signs of how much the exercise affected volunteers. He said: ―They‘re reporting withdrawal symptoms(症状), overeating, feeling nervous, isolat ed and disconnected.‖ During their 24-hour painful experience, three of the experiment‘s guinea pigs had to endure one intrusion(侵扰) from the media: a BBC reporter plus cameraman who followed them around for the day. They

were asked to write down 100 lines about their day offline, but of course, they all waited until the next day when they had access to their laptops. Elliot Day wrote: ―Today, my whole morning routine was thrown up into the air. Despite being aware of the social importance of the media, I w as surprised by how empty my life felt without the radio or newspapers.‖ From Caroline Scott, we read: ―I didn‘t expect it, but being prevented from the media for 24 hours resulted in my day-to-day activities becoming so much harder to carry out than usual… I didn‘t break out in a cold sweat like our lecturer expected us all to, but it‘s not something I would like to do again!‖ And Charlotte Gay wrote: ―I have to say the most difficult item for me to be without has been my mobile; not only is it a social tool, it‘s my main access point of communication.‖

Earlier in the year, a UK government study found that in the UK we spend about half our waking hours using the media, often plugged into several things at once. And a recent study by Nielson found that on average, US teenagers send and receive over 3,000 texts per month –that‘s about six texts per waking hour. So, with technology continuing to develop at an alarming rate, how much time will you set aside for sleep in the future?

59. What‘s the purpose of th e first paragraph?

A. To ask for information.

B. To entertain the readers.

C. To lead to the topic.

D. To present an idea.

60. About Dr. Roman Gerodimos‘ experiment, we know that ________.

A. volunteers felt uncomfortable in it

B. volunteers didn‘t want to eat anything

C. the experiment was still going on

D. volunteers were allowed to take their laptops

61. The underlined expression ―was thrown up into the air‖ most probably means ________.

A. went on normally

B. was completely disturbed

C. turned out perfect

D. was badly designed

62. Which of the following can best serve as the title of the passage?

A. Surviving without the Media

B. Unplugging Your Life

C. Valuing Social Communication

D. Setting Aside Time for Sleep

My third story is about death. When I was 17 I read a quote that went something like ―If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you‘ll most certainly be right.‖ It made an impression on me.

About a year ago, I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning and it clearly showed a tumour on my pancreas. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctors‘ code for ―prepare to die.‖ It means to try and tell your kids everything you thought you‘d have the next ten years to tell them, in just a few months. It means to make sure that everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy(活组织检查). It turned

out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and, thankfully, I am fine now.

This was the closest I‘ve been to facing death. No one wants to die, even people who want to go to Heaven don‘t want to die to get there, and yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. It‘s life‘s change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now, the new is you. But someday, not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it‘s quite true. Your time is limited, so don‘t waste it living someone else‘s life.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road. Beneath it were the words: ―Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.‖ It was their farewell me ssage as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.

63. The speech was most possibly given at ________.

A. an awarding ceremony

B. an opening ceremony

C. a receiving party

D. a graduation ceremony

63. When the doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, he meant to let me ________.

A. prepare for my future life

B. have an operation

C. spend more time with my family

D. get ready for death

65. The speaker wished ―Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.‖ for his audience, because _________.

A. they are too young to enjoy a wealthy and clever life at the moment

B. they are going to start a new life and so shouldn‘t waste any time

C. he was as hungry and foolish as they are when he was their age

D. they are supposed to live for wealth and fame with less worry

第六部分:【2012届·江苏省苏州五市四区高三期中调研测试】任务型阅读(共10小题;每小题1分,满分10分)

请认真阅读下列短文,并根据所读内容在文章后表格中的空格里填入一个最恰当的单词。注意:每个空格只填1个单词。请将答案写在答题卷上相应题号的横线上。

Are societies ageing too fast?

An ageing society is one in which the population of people over the age of 60 is increasing. The global population at present is about 6 billion with 1 person in every 10 aged 60 or above. The United Nations projects that by 2050, it will be 1 in every 5. This will mean that for the first time in human history the population of older persons will be larger than the population of children! What are the causes of this population change?

One reason is that dramatic health advances have added 20 years to the average life-expectancy, and another is that birthrates have dropped as people, especially women, are educ ated. Measures to slow population growth like China‘s one-child policy, have also contributed to lowered birthrates. The increase in the aged population is not just an interesting trend however; it also has severe implications for the future of global economies.

People traditionally retire at 65 and live on government pensions. As people grow older, a huge financial burden will be placed on the government. Another concern is that as medical expenses increase with age, the demands of the growing aged population will eventually cause medical schemes to face bankruptcy.

Experts insisted that steps should be taken now to prepare for the future. They suggest that because people are living longer, they ought to work longer, while governments need to

establish a sound social security system. They also suggest that individuals start saving as soon as possible to ensure a financially secure retirement. People should also develop good health habits in their youth to ensure an active and productive old age. Biomedical research is another tool we can use to tackle the problems of ageing societies. By finding cures for diseases like Alzheimer‘s and cancer, medical bills and the need for care would be drastically reduced. Finally, an important step to ensure a bright future for all is to do away with negative stereotypes that see valuable members of society only as pensioners or patients. It‘s high time we stopped seeing ageing as a disease and started playing our parts in securing the future of our ageing societies.

M: Only 150 people signed up for the annual seminar so far.

W: There‘s still another week to go. I expect about half that number more to sign up before Friday.

So we should make sure we have room for at least 225.

M: Oh, there‘s room for 300. I was worried that the space might be too large.

W: I don‘t think we‘ll need to worry about that. A lot of people sign up during the month right before the seminar. But there‘s always a large number that wait until the last week.

M: Our flight has been delayed for two hours. My partners are waiting for me at London Airport. W: Where do you come from?

M: Beijing. I was at a two-week conference there on Space Technology.

W: Really? Which places did you visit?

M: Apart from Beijing, we went to Nanjing, Shanghai, Xi‘an, Hangzhou and Guangzhou.

W: Did you enjoy it?

M: Oh, it‘s a great pity!

Thank you for coming to this meeting for students who will be remaining on campus during the ten-day winter break. As the dean of students, it is my responsibility to explain the vacation arrangements and to have you fill out forms giving the dates you will be on campus. To reduce heating costs, Butler Hall will be the only dormitory open. All the other dorms will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 7 and will not reopen until 6 p.m. on Feb. 16. Once we have your completed forms, we will arrange you a room in Butler Hall. Please have all the belongings you will need move to your temporary accommodations by the 7th, as it will not be possible to reopen the other dorms during these ten days once they‘ve been closed. Most college facilities will be closed during the vacation. These facilities include the gymnasium, the college store, and the dining-halls. The library and the computer center will be open, though on a reduced schedule. Only the post office and the college administration offices will be open on their regular hours. Since I imagine most of you are staying here to finish up academic projects of one sort or another, let me wish you luck with your work. If you have any special problems, please do not hesitate to contact me at the dean‘s office.

第七部分书面表达

One possible version:

Cooperation, which has always been a hot topic, plays a very important role in today‘s world. But not everyone knows how to cooperate well.

In the picture, we can see two men are trying to make a bench together. Both of them are working hard, sweating a lot. But obviously they are fixing the legs on opposite sides.

Seeing the picture, I can‘t help thinking how ridiculous it is. The two men work as a team and both of them do make their efforts. But unfortunately they just mind their own business without communicating with each other. It appears to me that they are not cooperating in an effective way. Working without cooperation leads to inefficiency.

But how can we cooperate more effectively? From my point of view, cooperation calls for effective communication, without which people will do things blindly. We should exchange ideas with our partners and work out a careful plan before taking actions. Otherwise, all the efforts will be in vain, just like what the two men do in the picture.
