Most of us have three meals a day .We take food for granted(想当然)。And we don’t think about it． 1 experts argue a food crisis(危机)is coming. This crisis is going to make us 2 the way we think about food.
Food is in great need 3 a growing of world population. By 1960,the population was three billion. It doubled to six billion by 1999.By 2050,this planet will need to 4 at least nine billion people. As a result,
the food prices get higher and higher.
So, what can a 5 ,crowed world do? One suggestion is to eat 6 meat. Meat uses more natural resources(资源)than grains(谷物) .It requires more 7 to produce one pound of meat than to produce one pound of grain．It also requires between 5 and 10 times more 8 than vegetables．So ,eating less meat will 9 more land for farming, and it will save water.
To eats less meat, people will need to change their eating habits．That will not be 10 .Americans, for example, have 11 loved meat．In general, They eat twice as much meat as people in other countries. At the same time, in developing countries like China and Brazil, sales of meat have doubled in the last 20 years． 12 will double again by 2050.Growing need of meat will 13 to put pressure on natural resources.
World population is increasing, resources are becoming fewer, and food prices are rising. Therefore, we need to rethink 14 we eat every day．For meat lovers, we don’t need to give up meat 15 .But we
need to eat more grains and less meat.

Animals are important in Indian culture and are treaded in a special way．For example, a lot of elephants aren’t 1 ．they are domesticated(驯养)．They aren’t kept as pets, but a s working animals．Every working elephant 2 its own keeper．An elephant and its keep meet for the first time when they are both young, and they grow up together．In fact, their relationship continues for the rest of the elephant’s 3 perhaps 40 years．Lots of elephants work in the forest, moving heavy 4 when they are cut down．Some give rides to tourists, or 5 people during celebrations and festivals．Keepers take excellent care of their elephants , feeding them 6 and giving them a bath at the end of the working day.
7 special animal in India is the cow．Cows are protected animals, 8 they aren’t ke pt on farms or killed for food, although people do use their milk．So in India you can often see cows walking around towns and cities, and nobody tries 9 them．If they sit down in the middle of the road, people 10 drive
around them! Do you think it’s interesting?

Have you ever wanted to achieve something really amazing in life? Well, Greg Morten son wanted to climb a mountain, but he ended up helping thousands of people to have a better life.
Greg’s story began with failure．In 1993, he set out to climb K2, the world’s second high est mountain．But Greg never made it to the top．After five days, he stumbled(踉跄）into the village of
Korphe in northern Pakistan, injured(受伤）and hungry．The kind villagers there looked after him for several days.
Greg saw that the villagers were very poor and hungry, and some of them were ill．Also, the village school didn’t have a roof(屋顶）and the children wrote on the ground with sticks．Greg knew he wanted to do something to help．“ I’ll build you a school,” he told the villagers．“ I promise.”
Greg went back home to the USA to raise money for the school．He even lived in the car to save money! Finally he went back to Korphe and built the school．But this was just the beginning of something bigger! Since th en, Greg’s organization has built around 80 schools an d runs many others in Pakistan and other countries, too.
Greg hasn’t finished yet．He does many other things to help people in poor c ountries．He has got many prizes, but it’s the smiles of the children he has helped that makes him happy!
Greg has just written a best-selling book about his story called Three Cups of Tea．It’s an interesting and exciting book which tells us what ordinary(普通的）people can do with courage and determination(决

Today there are many fires than in the past．Over 100,000 wildfires burn each year in America．Russia has 20,000 to 35,000 wildfires every year．Australia has on average 60,000 each year．These fires destroy（损害）huge areas of forests and burn hundreds of homes.
Many experts believe there are several reasons for this sudden increase in fires．The first reason is climate（气候）change．Recent weather has been warmer and drier．This leads to dangerous fire conditions．When lightening strikes（发生雷电），dry grass easily catches fire．Hot winds add to the problem．The wind spreads a fire quickly．In 2010, Russia had the hottest and driest summer in a century．In just one month, 500 fires destroyed over 2,000 homes．Some people lost their lives.
Traditional fire-fighting practices are another reason for the increase in fires．In America, firefighters used to quickly put out every fire．They didn’t allow the grass and trees to burn．As a result, today many forests have thicker vegetation（植被）.Thicker vegetation means more fuel（燃料）for fires．Also, without fires from time to time, forests become overcrowded and unhealthy．Some trees are dead．The dead wood then easily catches fire．So surprisingly, America has many more fires today partly because of its past fire-fighting practices.
Scientists now understand that a fire can be a natural part of a healthy forest．As a result, countries like Australia allow more fires to burn naturally．Sometimes, fire fighters even start fires to get rid of（去除）dead wood．Of course, they carefully control the fires．The fire thins out old trees．This allows sunlight to reach the ground．As a result, fires help new trees to grow．Therefore, if a fire is not a serious threat（威胁）to people, firefighters may let it burn naturally.
1．Why did Russia have so many fires in one month in 2010?
A．Because lightening spread the fire.
B．Because there was much fuel for fires.
C．Because there were not enough firefighters.
D．Because it was unusually hot, dry and windy.

C．Fires can play an important role I forests.
D．It’s difficult for firefighters to control the fires.
4．Which of the following is true according to the passage?

The first part of a new science-fiction series （系列剧）was shown on NBC last night．Star Trek is about a spacecraft（宇宙飞船）which travels faster than the speed of light．The show is developed from three ideas about the 22nd century．First, we’ll find other life forms great tools which will make amazing things possible.
Let’s think about these pred ictions．If we find life forms on other planets, will they be intelligent? I hope so．But we human beings might not be friendly –I don’t think we’ll believe in the idea of peace one hundred years from now．But this is science fiction, so we can be optimistic! And Star Trek’s idea of life in the future is ‘communicators’．And we will be able to have conversations with people who are on because you’ll have an electronic notebook．And if you get ill, the doctor won’t have to examine you – a machine will ‘read’ you r body．The strangest manchine includes a ‘teleport’ which will take people to a different place in a second!
The ideas are interesting, and in my opinion there’s only one problem with star trek: the acting．The TV company （公司）will have to get better actors．If they do that, the show might be a success．If the acting doesn’t improve, Star Trek won’t last for more than one series．Of course, my prediction may be
wrong．I can’t see into the future!

1 Countries like France, Brazil and even Japan have their own hip-hop culture．But where did this strange speaking-singing style come from? Many centuries ago, in West Africa, traditional storytellers played musical instruments while they were telling stories．When this tradition travelled from West Africa to the USA, it developed into different musical styles．For example, blues and jazz．
2 And in the 1970s, there were many poor areas in New York．There wasn’t any money for music lessons in schools, so kids made their own music．Teenagers Afrika and DJ Here played their records outside in the streets．Everybody joined in．MCs had rapping（说唱） competitions．Every week, there were talented new dancers, new DJs and new MCs．Hip-hop culture was born.
3 It was 1980．I was at a party in New York．There was a young DJ at the party．He was playing records．While he was putting a record on, a kid picked up a microphone（话筒）and began
tapping．Some other kids were break-dancing to the music．It was loud and boring, and I hated it．I preferred jazz.
4 Today’s successful American artists like Missy and her friend Tim heard it on the radio when they were growing up.
The last time I heard hip-hop, I was in West Africa． 5 I was going to interview a traditional storyteller when I met a young hip-hop artist, He told me there are hundreds of rap groups in Africa today．We live on a hip-hop
