Switzerland is the best place to be born in the world in 2013, and the US is just 16th.A new study produced by the Economist Intelligence Unit says American babies will have a dimmer(暗谈) future than those born in Hong Kong, Ireland and even Canada.The EIU, a sister company of The Economist, attempted to measure how well countries will provide the best opportunities for a healthy, safe and prosperous life in years to come.

People born in Switzerland will tend to be the happiest and have the best quality of life judged in terms of wealth, health and trust in public institutions, according to the analysis.The Scandinavian countries of Norway, Sweden and Denmark also all make the top five in a ’quality-of-life‘ index (指数)where it is best to be born next year.

One of the most important factors is being rich, but other factors come into play including crime, trust in public institutions and the health of family life.In total, the index takes into account 11 factors.These include fixed factors such as geography, others that change slowly over time such as demography(人口学)social and cultural characteristics, and the state of the world economy.The index also looks at income per head in 2030, which is roughly when children born in 2013 will reach adulthood.Small economies dominate the top 10 countries, with Australia coming second and New Zealand and the Netherlands not too far behind.

Half of the top 10 countries are European, but only one, the Netherlands, is from the euro—zone.The crisis-ridden south of Europe, including Greece, Portugal and Spain, lags behind despite the advantage of a favourable climate.Interestingly, the largest European economies — Germany, France and Britain — do not do particularly well.Nigeria has the unenviable(不值得羡慕的) title of being the worst country for a baby to enter the world in 2013.

51.According to the passage, the happiest people live in .

A.Denmark B.Switzerland C.Germany D.Nigeria

52.The factors of telling the best place to be born don’t include .#p#分页标题#e#

A.economy B.geography

C.trust in public institutions D.pollution

53.From the passage, we know .

A.the Economist Intelligence Unit is a company

B.the Economist attempted to measure the best place to live

C.the Scandinavian countries are hardly at the top of the list

D.half of the top 10 countries are from the eurozone

54.The purpose of the text is to show people .

A.the best place to be born in 2013

B.a new study made by the EIU

C.the worst country to be born in 2013

D.the factors of measuring the best place to be born

Last week, my granddaughter started kindergarten, and I wished her every success.But part of me didn’t .I actually wanted her to fail in some ways becauseI believe that failure can be good for our learning process.Success is proving that you can do something that you already know you can do, or doing something correctly the first time, which can often be a problematic victory.First-time success is usually a fluke(侥幸).First-time failure, by contrast, is expected to be the natural order of things.Failure is how we learn.

In Africa they describe a good cook as “She who has broken many pots.”If you’ve spent enough time in the kitchen to have broken a lot of pots, probably you know a fair amount about cooking.I once had dinner with a group of cooks, and they spent time comparing knife wounds and burn scars.They knew how much credibility their failures gave them.

I earn my living by writing a daily newspaper column.Each week I am aware that one column .I write will be my worst .I don‘t set out to write it; I try my best every day.I have learned to cherish that column.A successful column usually means that I am discussing my familiar topic, writing in a style I am used to or saying the same things as anyone else but in a fancy way.

My younger daughter is a trapeze artist.She spent three years putting together a show, and she did it successfully for years.There was no reason for her to change it but she did anyway.She said she was no longer learning anything new and she was bored.And if she was bored, there was no point in subjecting her body to all that stress.She risked failure and profound public embarrassment in order to feed her soul.

My granddaughter is a perfectionis.She will feel her failures, and I will want to comfort her.But I will also, I hope, remind her of what she learned, and how she can do better next time.I hope I can tell her, though, that it’s not the end of the world.Indeed, with luck, it is the beginning.

55.Why did the author want his granddaughter to fail?

A.Success is boring though beneficial.

B.She would learn more from failure.

C.It’s impossible to do everything successfully.

D.He wanted her to be strong enough to face hardships.#p#分页标题#e#

56.What’s the author’s attitude toward his daughter changing her show?

A.Negative. B.Worried. C.Positive. D.Excited.

57.The author develops the article mainly by .

A.giving examples B.following the time order

C.comparing different opinions D.presenting a cause and analyzing its effects

58.The writer talked about his own experience to show that .

A.we cannot depend on luck to live a good life

B.we should try every possible way to avoid failure

C.past failures made him dare not take risks in writing

D.the thought of failure will make you work even harder

What exactly is intelligence? There aren’t any easy answers.Despite the progress that has been made in genetics and psychology, human intelligence has remained one of the most controversial areas of modern science,until now, that is, for the discovery of a gene(基因) linked to intelligence has made the experts think again.

Robert Plomin of the Institute of Psychiatry in London and his colleagues in the US have been looking into genetic make-up.From their research, they have discovered that a slightly different gene is more common in those with a high IQ.Plomin analyzed DNA from two groups of 51 children aged between 6 and 15.What he found was that the first group had an IQ of 136, putting them in the top 5% of the population, while the other group had an average IQ of 103.An analysis of their genes showed that 32% of children in the higher group had the gene in question, while only 16% in the second group did.However, there is a lot more research to be done, and Plomin himself is cautious at this early stage.He suggests that there are probably many genes that contribute to intelligence, rather than just one.He suggests that there are probably many genes that contribute to intelligence, rather than just one .Several studies have shown a strong link between IQ and career success, although some psychologists remain unconvinced about this.Professor Michael Rowe, who has written a book called Genius Explained, is one of these.“The people with the highest IQs are not usually the ones who do best in their careers.”

Many psychologists now believe that when it comes to intelligence, IQ isn’t everything.Many alternative views have been put forward recently.One example is the idea of multiple intelligences, which was developed in the 1980s by Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner.This offers a much broader view than the IQ theory, including creativity and communication skills as relevant factors(因素) in intelligence.

Tony Buzan, brain expert and author of Master your Memory, is enthusiastic about this belief, arguing that true geniuses(天才) do indeed appear to combine high levels of each type of intelligence.He lists Alexander the Great, Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein as examples.At the same time, Buzan believes that everyone can develop their intelligence, only if they take the trouble to exercise their brain.Perhaps there’s hope for us all!#p#分页标题#e#

59.What does the underlined word “This” in Paragraph 4 refer to?

A.The development of intelligence.

B.The idea of multiple intelligences.

C.IQ isn’t everything for intelligence.

D.Alternative views have been put forward.

60.Why does the author use data in Paragraph 2?

A.To make a suggestion. B.To draw a conclusion.

C.To prove an idea. D.To give an example.

61.What can we learn from the passage?

A.Robert Plomin confirms genes have something in common.

B.Howard Gardner thinks intelligence includes various factors.

C.Michael Rowe approves of a strong link between IQ and career.

D.Tony Buzan agrees geniuses exercise brain to improve intelligence.

62.What might be the best title of the passage?

A.The relationship between genes and intelligence.

B.IQ benefits a lot from high intelligence.

C.How to develop intelligence.

D.What makes intelligence.

Petroleum, consisting of crude oil(原油) and natural gas, seems to originate from organic matter in marine sediment(海洋沉淀物).Tiny organisms settle to the seafloor and gather in marine mud.The organic matter may partially break down, using up the dissolved oxygen in the sediment.As soon as the oxygen is gone, decay stops and the remaining organic matter is preserved.

Continued sedimentation buries the organic matter and subjects it to higher temperatures and pressures, which change the organic matter to oil and gas.As muddy sediments are pressed together, the gas and small drops of oil may be squeezed out of the mud and may move into sandy layers nearby.Over millions of years, accumulations of gas and oil can collect in the sandy layers.Both oil and gas are less dense than water, so they generally tend to rise upward through rock and sediment.

Oil pools are valuable underground accumulations of oil, and oil fields are regions underlain by one or more oil pools.When an oil pool or field is discovered, wells are drilled into the ground.When the well reaches a pool, oil usually rises up the well because of its density difference(密度差) with water beneath it or because of the pressure of expanding gas trapped above it.Although this rise of oil is almost always carefully controlled today, strong natural flows of oil were common in the past.Gas pressure gradually dies out, and oil is pumped from the well.Water or steam may be pumped down neighboring wells to help push the oil out.

As oil becomes increasingly difficult to find, the search for it is extended into more unfriendly environments.The development of the oil field on the North Slope of Alaska and the construction of the Alaska pipeline are examples of the great expense and difficulty involved in new oil discoveries.Offshore drilling platforms extend the search for oil to the ocean’s continental shelves.More than one-quarter of the world’s oil and almost one-fifth of the world’s natural gas come from offshore, even though offshore drilling is six to seven times more expensive than drilling on land.#p#分页标题#e#

Of course, there is far more oil underground than can be recovered.Even given the best exploration techniques, only about 30 to 40 percent of the oil in a given pool can be brought to the surface.The rest is far too difficult to reach and has to remain underground.

63.Which of the following is true about petroleum formation?

A.Microscopic organisms that live in mud produce crude oil and natural gas.

B.Large amounts of oxygen are needed for petroleum formation to begin.

C.Petroleum is formed when organic material in sediments combines with decaying organisms.

D.Petroleum formation appears to begin in marine sediments where organic matter exists.

64.What does the development of the Alaskan oil field mentioned illustrate?

A.More petroleum is extracted from the sea than from land.

B.Drilling for oil requires huge financial investments.

C.The global demand for oil has been increasing over the years.

D.The North Slope of Alaska has substantial amounts of oil.

65.What does the author mainly intend to tell us in the passage?

A.The formation, processing and exploration of petroleum

B.The specific techniques involved in oil exploration.

C.The changing relationships between countries.

D.The future intense situation in oil product markets.

66.What can we infer from the passage?

A.Available exploration techniques serve our purpose of exploring oil very well.

B.More and more public regions will be further protected from being drilled in the future.

C.Countries may suffer from unpleasant relationships for respective benefits in exploring oil.

D.Powerful flows of oil is a phenomenon which can be witnessed rarely now.

The news that China bans time-travel TV dramas and movies got a lot of attention on the internet Yet, time travel in China is bit different from time travel in common sense.It is anything but science fiction and always goes backwards in time.There is minimum imagination involved-no ever-ending circles that mess up present and future, no advanced technology, no new social orders or new human forms from the twenty-whatever century, everything is a known historical fact when you travel through in China.

It is not even called time travel ; rather the Chinese people refer it as time crossover.Time crossover has been an extremely popular theme for online novels for years (in fact , it is an indispensible part of China’s online culture), and didn’t get picked up by TV and the big screen until recent two years.Most of time—travel dramas and movies are adapted from popular online novels and like in other cases adaptations are never better than the original books.

The main plot of time—travel novels or TV dramas can be very well summarized in one sentence: from nobody to somebody.Time travel in China is more about escaping from the reality than about realizing wild dreams.#p#分页标题#e#

In China , there is no need of time machine either.People travel backwards in time via the possession of antiques presence at historical places of interest encounter of life—threatening accidents or simple a look into the mirror.Some time-travel novels even start with “I wanted to go back to history so much that one morning when I opened my eyes I was back.” Technology is not relevant at all.

Though China is not short of histories to go back to people have their own preferences and it is pretty much a gender (性别)thing.If the main character is male then he usually goes back to special times in history when he is able to help build up or tear up a dynasty.A typical example is A Step Into the Past (寻秦记), the first time—travel TV drama in China, which tells the story of how a SWAT member helps to unite China and build up Qin Dynasty .

On the other hand , female characters primarily go back to Qing Dynasty partly because Qing Dynasty has the most number of princes to fall in love with.Yongzheng Emperor is the favorite.As can be seen in Startling by Each Step(步步惊心), a Qing time crossover classic, a girl goes back to Qing Dynasty and falls in love with Yongzheng Emperor and his brothers.

67.As for time travel in China, which of the following ideas does the writer agree to ?

A.it is complicated and can be classified into science fiction.

B.it is often based on the familiar story in history.

C.it sometimes messes up the times and social orders.

D.it always occurs in any times but the time before.

68.The writing purpose of this passage is to 。

A.analyse why the time —travel TV dramas are banned in China

B.introduce the characteristics of the time—travel TV dramas in China

C.show the difference between time travel in China and in other cultures

D.advise people to watch the time—travel TV dramas in China

69.It can be inferred from the passage that 。

A.China now has banned any forms of productions about time travel

B.adapted from online novels, time—travel TV and movie productions enjoy more praise

C.the main character always follows a set pattern in the time—travel TV dramas in China

D.all the time—travel productions are about heroes and their success

70.The news mentioned in the very beginning is intended to 。

A.prove author’s view B.introduce the topic

C.give an example D.work as a topic sentence

My Understanding of Happiness

Having the sense of happiness is of great significance. As a vital factor of life, it brings us power, arouses our enthusiasm for loving life, and helps us create a promising future.#p#分页标题#e#

In addition to material basis, the sense of happiness also refers to several other aspects. Firstly, based on a recent survey, the majority of individuals admit that they are no longer content with being fed and clothed adequately, and their happiness depends more on their success in careers, friendship and love. Secondly, a great many people claim that health is the key to their sense of happiness. It is health that enables them to build up a solid foundation for anything significant.

As a student, I am convinced that never can money equal happiness. To enhance our sense of happiness, we should advocate and encourage our friends and classmates to enrich their knowledge, broaden their horizon and cultivate their ability.

W: I have heard that it’s going to be really cold this winter.

M: Well, you didn’t expect it to be warm, did you?

W: Of course not, but I just heard the National Weather Service prediction for the next 90 days. They said it’s supposed to be much colder weather than usual.

M: Yeah, maybe. Personally, I think those long-range forecasts are useless.

W: I am afraid that I can not agree with you.

M: Oh, come on, it looks like you are talking about what’s going to happen three months from now.

W: Well, you are half way right. They aren’t very good for rainfall. But they are a lot better for temperatures especially for this time of the year.#p#分页标题#e#

M: Really, so I should take them seriously about the cold but not count too much on a lot of extra snow?

W: Ah-ha. It should be right.

W: Good afternoon, Sales Department. May I help you?

M: Could I speak to Mr. Mike, please?

W: I’ll see if he is available. Who shall I say is calling, please?

M: John Smith.

W: Hold the line, please. Mr. Mike is in a meeting with the Managing Director at the moment, I’m afraid. Can I help you?

M: Well, I want to discuss with him the new contract we signed last week.

W: I don’t think the meeting will go on much longer. Shall I ask him to call you when he is free?

W: Could I have your name again, please?

M: Yes. It’s John Smith.

W: And the number?

A couple had two little boys aged 8-10, who were very naughty. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that if anything wrong happened in their town, their sons were probably involved.

The boy’s mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed but asked to see them individually. So the mother sent her 8- year-old first in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon.

The clergyman, a huge man with a deep voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him seriously “Where is God?”

The boy made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open, wide-eyed. So the clergyman repeated the question in an even more serious tone “Where is God?” Again the boy made no answer. So the clergyman raised his voice and shouted “WHERE IS GOD?”#p#分页标题#e#

The boy screamed and ran off from the room, hurried directly home and hide himself in his closet. When his older brother found him, he asked “What happened?” The younger brother breathlessly replied “We are in BIG trouble this time. God is missing and they think WE did it.”
