It was one of the happiest times of my life. I was 29 and had just received my bachelor’s degree, graduating with honors 36 working two jobs and being a wife and mother. My 37 and five-year-old son were in the audience when I walked onto the stage at AshlandUniversity to get my diploma. I was so excited and 38 to be starting a teaching career and contributing more to my family’s well-being.
But when I got back home that evening, there was a 39 from my husband. It basically said he’d come to get his clothes and wouldn’t be 40 . We’d been having trouble, but the finality of that note still came as a shock. He had 41 our bank account. We were horribly in debt. I had 42 my previous jobs in expectation of interviewing for a teaching position. 43 , I was eight months pregnant.
Most young women have an 44 picture of the happy-go-lucky life they’re going to live. But no one ever sits you down and says that’s not 45 and sometimes life is just extremely ugly. It all caved in for me that night. I was embarrassed, scared, and angry and felt I had 46 .
But I had my son, and I was about to bring a new life into the world, so despite my deep 47 , I had to go on. The next morning, I woke up, put my feet on the floor, took a deep breath, prepared breakfast, and basically did 48 I always did. I used my 49 to keep me moving. After being in the military for six years, I guess you can say I fell back on my training, like all good 50 do in tough situations.
And in the past seven years, I’ve continued moving 51 . I got a job as a kindergarten teacher, earned a master’s degree in education, and 52 my babies grow to twelve and seven. I certainly would never have chosen to 53 them through this, but in review, I’m glad it happened to me when it did. It helped me to 54 my voice and myself a lot sooner. It helped me 55 independent, and confident — things I’m hopefully implanting(灌输) now in my children.

A British judo master has been given a big award for making an “outstanding contribution” to his home city.
George Kerr, 73, was praised as a “good and beautiful person’’ as he picked up the Edinburgh Award, which honors people who have made a positive impact on the Scottish capital. He is the fourth person to receive the honor, following in the footsteps of Ian Rankin. JK Rowling and Sir Chris Hoy, all of whom were recognized for helping to bring international recognition to the city.
The Edinburgh-born sporting star, called “Mr. Judo”, said: “It’s a fantastic honor to get this. They give it to people who put Edinburgh on the map. 1t’s a great thing to be honored by your own people. It’s fantastic when you consider I was a little boy from Craigentinny whose father was a bus driver.’’
The event saw the unveiling(揭幕) of Kerr’s handprints in the City Chambers yard, where they have been carved in Caithness stone alongside those of the previous Edinburgh Award winners. Council leader Jenny Dawe spoke well of Kerr, saying he was a “hugely deserving’’ member of the outstanding Edinburgh Award “club”. “The council is delighted to present George Kerr with the Edinburgh Award on behalf of the people of Edinburgh”, she added.
Life-long friend and Scottish Hairdresser of the Year Charlie Miller also spoke of a “great, good and beautiful person who inspired a lot of people and is well worth respecting worldwide”. The award follows what the British Judo Association(BJA) president described as an unbelievable” year. Kerr was elevated to the highest rank of his sport in February 2010 when he became the youngest person ever to be named a 10th Dan, a title which has only been held by 15 people since it first began in the late 19th century.

Smart phones that react to your moods and televisions that can tell it’s you who’s watching are in your future as Intel Corporation’s top technology expert sets his sights on context-aware computing.
Chief technology officer Justin Rattner showed how personal devices will one day offer advice. “How can we change the relationship so we think of these devices not as devices but as assistants or even companions?” he asked.
Handheld devices could combine already common geographic location technology with data from microphones, cameras, heart and body monitors and even brain scans to offer their owners advice that today only a friend or relative could give.
“Imagine a device that uses a variety of sensors to determine what you are doing at an instant, from being asleep in your bed to being out for a run with a friend, ” Rattner said, “Future devices will constantly learn about who you are, how you live, work and play.’’
Rattner also demonstrated a television remote control that figures out who is holding it based on how it is held, and then learns the viewer’s entertainment preferences.
As the world leader for decades in microchips for servers and desktop computers, Intel is hurrying to catch up in the profitable market for smart phones like Apple’s iPhone and Research in Motion’s Blackberry.
Telephones with e-mail, global positioning and media players are pointing the way to a future where ever more functions are packed into ever smaller mobile devices.
The smart phone industry, including technology giants like LG and Samsung, is likely to sell 270 million phones this year and grow 25 percent in 2011, according to market research company IDC.
“I think you can expect to see features that support context-aware computing starting to appear in Intel products in the near future,” Rattner said.
But analysts say Intel faces an uphill battle getting its microchips into new phones as Nvidia, Marvell and Qualcomm have already made headway with cheap, lower-power processors based on designs by ARM Holdings.
Rattner recognized that questions about privacy and people’s willingness to be intimate with their computers will have to be settled before the future generation of smart phones he described takes off.
“If you think identity threat is a problem today, imagine when your whole context is readily available on the Net.”, he said.
60. The future smart phones can do all of the following except _______.
A. giving responses to the moods of the owners
B. giving proposals like assistants or companions
C. offering advice to their owners’ friends or relatives
D. telling the phone holders or carriers where they are
61. Which of the following are smart phones according to the passage?
A. iPhone and Blackberry B. LG and Samsung
C. Marvell and Qualcomm D. Nvidia and ARM Holdings
62. From the passage we can infer that _______.
A. Intel Corporation has become the world leader in the smar tphone market
B. Intel Corporation has fallen behind in the profitable market for smart phones
C. more functions packed into mobile phones will make mobile devices larger
D. the smart phone industry is likely to grow 25 percent in the year of 2011
63. The best title for the passage is likely to be _______.
A. Smart phones and Televisions B. Context-aware Computing
C. Personalized Televisions D. Personalized Smart phones

My day began on a decidedly sour note when I saw my six-year-old wrestling with a branch of my azalea(杜鹃花) bush. By the time I got outside, he’d broken it. “Can I take this to school today?” he asked.
With a wave of my hand, I sent him off. I turned my back so he wouldn’t see the tears gathering in my eyes. I loved that azalea bush. I touched the broken branch as if to say silently, “I’m sorry.”
I was still mopping up the mess when Jonathan walked into the kitchen. “What’s for breakfast, Mum?” I opened the empty refrigerator. “Not cereal.” I said. Why was I so angry? I tossed my husband’s dishes into the water.
It was days like this that made me want to quit. 1 just wanted to drive up to the mountains. hide in a cave, and never come out.
As I finished hanging up the last of my husband’s shirts, I looked at the clock. 2:30. I was late. Jonathan’s class let out at 2:15. I dumped the clothes in the back seat and hurriedly drove to the school.
I was out of breath by the time I knocked on the teacher’s door and peered through the glass. With one finger, she motioned for me to wait. She said something to Jonathan and handed him and two other children crayons and a sheet of paper.
What now? I thought, as she rustled(沙沙作响) through the door and took me aside. “I want to talk to you about Jonathan,” she said.
I prepared myself for the worst. Nothing would have surprised me.
‘‘Did you know Jonathan brought flowers to school today?” she asked.
I nodded, thinking about my favorite bush and trying to hide the hurt in my eyes. I glanced at any son busily coloring a picture and attentively admiring it.
“Let me tell you about yesterday.” the teacher insisted. “See that little girl?’’
I watched the bright-eyed child laugh and point to a colorful picture taped to the wall. I nodded.
“Well, yesterday she was almost hysterical. Her mother and father are going through a disgusting divorce. She told me she didn’t want to live, she wished she could die. I watched that little girl bury her face in her hands and say loud enough for the class to hear, ‘Nobody loves me.’ ‘I did all I could to comfort her, but it only seemed to make matters worse.”
“I thought you wanted to talk to me about Jonathan.” I said.
“I do,” she said, touching the sleeve of my blouse. “Today your son walked straight over to that child. I watched him hand her some pretty pink flowers and whisper, ‘I love you.’”.
I felt my heart filled with pride for what my son had done. I smiled at the teacher. “Thank you,” I said, reaching for Jonathan’s hand, “you’ve made my day.”
Later that evening, I began pulling weeds from around my imbalanced azalea bush. As my mind wandered back to the love Jonathan showed the little girl, a biblical verse came to me: “…these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
I heard the familiar sound of my husband’s brakes as he pulled into the drive…….

第四部分 任务型阅读 (共10小题;每小题1分; 满分10分)
I like finding ways to improve my life and bring more positivity into it. Although I’m just at the beginning of that journey, I’ve already found some useful ideas for doing just that. Maybe they can help you to have more fun, improve your relationships, your business, your health and your life. I hope so.
Appreciating as much as you can is one of those very simple things you can do to bring more positivity in to your life. I have also found appreciation to be a great way to turn an angry, sad and frustrated mood around to a more positive one. Simply appreciate anywhere and everywhere in your day: appreciate the great weather, and appreciate the good looking guy that just walked past you. Appreciate the things you have and the things you experience. Doing this for a minute or two always gives me positive encouragement and improves my outlook on the world.
If you don’t stop comparing yourself to others, then you’ll just create a lot of unnecessary pain in your life. If you pass one person then you’ll just find another person more successful than you. And your brief sense of being a winner will transform once again into anxiety, fear, stomachaches and possibly heart attacks. Instead start comparing yourself to yourself. Try to improve yourself and see how you grow, and become a more successful and happier person. Focus on yourself, not the other people around you, no matter if they are more or less successful. It may sound updated, but I feel it’s both a healthier and more successful way to work and view life.
Your emotions work backwards, too. So even if you don’t feel positive, confident, calm or decisive you can act like it. And after you have done that for a few minutes, guess what happens? You will actually start to feel positive, confident, calm or decisive. If you don’t know how to act, observe other people around you — it may be friends, co-workers, family or celebrities from any time and age — who have the quality you’d like to have. Then imitate them. If you don’t believe in this, then just smile — even if you have to force yourself — for 30 seconds right now and see how you feel after that.
Michael Jordan once said: “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed. ‘‘Society may have brought you up to fear failure. But if you can rethink failure not as something to fear but rather useful feedback, it can improve your life largely. A failure may hurt for a while but then you can learn one or many lessons from it. And then you try again. And again. And failure becomes less and less frightening. All successful people have failed many, many times. But they know that there are still a lot of great new people and opportunities out there. So they try again. And sooner or later they have success once again.

For a time, disposable chopsticks became popular, which caused great damage to forests. But since our country began to ban the use of them in 2004, things have changed.
As is vividly shown in the left cartoon, in the past disposable chopsticks made of wood were often used in our daily life. It is a waste of wood and does harm to the environment. Due to the abuse of disposable chopsticks, many trees were cut down, which resulted in the decrease of the forest.
Since 2004, with the ban of using disposable chopsticks and the awareness of forest protection, people begin to reject using disposable chopsticks. Our government has also taken measures to prevent factories from producing such chopsticks and attach importance to forest conservation. Now disposable chopsticks are out sight and more trees appear.
This teaches us a good lesson. In our daily life, we should try to use less wood and plant more trees so that our resources can be sustainable and our world can be a better place to live in. (148 words )
