Broken rubber bands and flat tires requiring replacement could soon be a thing of the past.

French researchers have developed a new kind of rubber that can repair itself when broken.The new rubber is made from widely available materials including vegetable oil and a common industrial chemical.All the materials are considered safe to the environment and can be easily reused.

The best part is that the new rubber can be repaired and used again and again without losing its strength or ability or stretch.When cut, the rubber can be made new again, simply by pressing the two broken ends back together.

The product can be repaired at room temperature, around twenty degrees Centigrade;other self-healing materials require higher temperatures for repair.

Traditionally, rubber substances are made from huge molecules(分子)connected by strong chemical links, or bonds.The new rubber is made of smaller molecules.The molecules are linked together using hydrogen bonds.When connected in this way, the molecules act like one long molecule, forming what is called supramolecular networks(超分子网).When the rubber is cut, the molecules attempt to connect with whatever molecule is near them.When pressed together, the molecules are able to repair themselves at the molecular level, making the repaired rubber like new.

However, time is an important element in the process.If the broken ends are not brought together quickly, a repair is not possible.This is because molecules will form bonds with molecules on their own side.The inventors say the surfaces of the rubber can be repaired within a week of being separated.

The rubber is the creation of scientists at the Industrial Physics and Chemistry Higher Education Institution in Paris.The organization is part of France's National Center for Scientific Research.The new material is described in greater detail in the research publication Nature

1.According to the introduction, which of the following is NOT the advantage of the new rubber?

A.It can be made as easily as common rubber.

B.It is environmentally-friendly.

C.It can repair itself at room temperature.

D.It is made of smaller molecules.

2.What does the 5th paragraph mainly tell us?

A.Why the new rubber is unique.

B.Why the new rubber can repair itself.

C.The new rubber is made from huge molecules.

D.The new rubber is different from the common rubber.

3.If we want to know more about the technology of this kind of new rubber, where can we get the information?

A.In the researchers' diary.                B.In a guide book.

C.In a research magazine.                 D.In a newspaper.

It was a beautiful Sunday morning, and Maggie and I were returning from our walk through the woods.We were only a couple of blocks from home when I spotted a cell phone and a credit card sitting on the road.We took them home.We always find amazing things on the street and she looks upon them as a movable feast-a chicken wing here or a barbecue rib (肋骨)there.

I found another cell phone a few years back, too, and called a number in its phone book.I explained the situation to the guy who answered.He said it was his sister's and that he'd come to pick it up, which he did.

And that was that.No verbal thank-you, no written thank-you, no “here's a box of chocolates” thank-you.

I didn't have time to call anyone on my latest found cell phone.I was pouring myself coffee when it started to shake and dance across the kitchen counter.

“Who's this?” someone asked when I picked up.

“Who's this?” I countered(反问).“Sarah?”

She was surprised at my knowing her name until she realized her name was on the credit card.“Could you send them to me?” she asked.

She lives in Arlington, which is 2 miles from my house.

“Hmm, no, ”I replied, adding that I thought she could come to get them, and that if I wasn't at home, they would be in my mailbox.

A day later, when I was out for a run, someone got them back.There wasn't even a piece of paper put in the mailbox with “Thanks” on it.In this age of e-mail and cell phone, there's really no excuse.Years ago, I found something more precious than a $100 bill on the street:a driver's license.I saw  that its owner lived a couple of blocks from me, so I called him up.He asked whether I could slip the license through his front door.

“I guess I could, ”I replied.

And that was that.

1.What is the relationship between Maggie and the writer?

A.Wife and husband                       B.Daughter and father

C.Teacher and student                     D.Master and pet dog

2.How many experiences are mentioned by the writer to return things to the losers?

A.3                B.4                C.5                D.6

3.How did the writer know Sarah's name?

A.From her telephone's phone book          B.From her credit card

C.From her e-mail                        D.From her driver's license

4.The writer wants to tell us through the unusual stories,

A.we should return the things we picked to the losers

B.people don't know how to appreciate others in the age of e-mail and cell phone

C.people should learn to appreciate persons who provide help for you

D.the advance of society makes people lose some virtues

To get an extra 14 years of life, don't smoke, eat lots of fruits and vegetables, exercise regularly and drink alcohol in a proper amount.That is according to a study published this Monday in the Public Library of Science Medicine Journal.

After tracking more than 20,000 people aged 45 to 79 years in the United Kingdom from about 1993 to 2007, Kay-Tee Khaw of the University of Cambridge and his colleagues found that people who adopted these four healthy habits lived all average of 14 years longer than those who didn't.

“We've known for a long time that these behaviors are good things to do, but we've not seen this benefit before, ”said Susan Jebb, head of Nutrition and Health at Britain's Medical Research Council.“The benefit was also seen regardless of whether or not people were fat and what social class they came from.”

Study participants(参与者)scored a point each for not smoking, regular physical activity, eating five servings of fruits and vegetables a day and moderate alcohol intake.

Public health experts said they hoped the study would inspire governments to introduce policies helping people to adopt these changes.But because the study only observed people rather than testing specific changes, it would be impossible to conclude that people who suddenly adopted these healthy behaviors would surely gain 14 years.

“We can't say that any person could gain 14 years by doing these things, ”said Dr.Tim Armstrong, a physical activity expert at the World Health Organization.“The 14 years is an average across the population of what's theoretically(理论上地)possible.”

“Most people know that things like a good diet matter and that smoking isn't good for them, ”Susan Jebb said.“We need to work on providing people with much more practical support to help them change.”

1.Which of the following DOESN'T belong to the four healthy habits?

A.Eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day.

B.Do proper exercise in the morning every day.

C.Drinking alcohol in the proper amount every day.

D.Having a cigarette before going to bed every day.

2.We can learn from the passage that            

A.Susan Jebb did not take part in the study.

B.the study observed people as well as tested specific changes.

C.there's no need for people under 45 to adopt these good habits.

D.only those from first class can benefit from these healthy behaviors.

3.What can be inferred from the passage?

A.All the people are well aware of the harm of their bad habits.

B.People aged 45 to 70 have bad habits in the United Kingdom.

C.Governments should take measures to help people change their bad habits.

D.People have adopted the four healthy habits after knowing they're good.

4.What would be the best title for this passage?

A.Smoking and Drinking Cuts You 14 Years

B.How to Live a Much Healthier Life

C.Healthy Habits May Give Extra 14 Years

D.How to Make Your Life Longer Than Others

It seemed like this would be a good time to let my teenage daughter Holly practice her driving, so I sent her to the store in my truck.

At dinner my son talked about how much he liked my truck. I enjoyed having it, but I said: "Guy, my heart is not set on that truck. I like it but it is just metal and won’t last forever. Never set your heart on anything that won’t last."

After hearing the loud noise, the whole family ran outside. My son shouted: "Dad! Dad, Holly crashed your truck."

My heart sank and my mind was flooded with conflicting thoughts. Was anyone hurt? Who else was involved? As I ran to the door, I heard a voice in my heart say: "Here is a chance to show Holly what you really love. She’ll never forget it."

The accident had occurred in my own driveway. Holly had crashed my truck into our other vehicle, the family van (搬运车). In her inexperience, she had confused the brakes and the gas pedal. Holly was unhurt physically, but when I reached her, she was crying and saying: "Oh, Dad, I’m sorry. I know how much you love this truck." I held her in my arms as she cried.

Later that week a friend stopped by and asked what had happened to my truck. I told her the whole story. Her eyes moistened (湿润) and she said: "That happened to me when I was a girl. I borrowed my dad’s car and ran into a log that had fallen across the road. I ruined the car. When I got home my Dad knocked me to the ground and began to kick me."

Over 40 years later, she still felt the pain of that night.

I remember how sad Holly was and how I comforted her. One day, when Holly thinks back on her life, I want her to know what really matters in my life.

1.How did the crash happen?

A.The van was parked in the wrong place that evening.

B.Holly stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brakes.

C.The brakes of the truck didn’t work properly.

D.Holly was too careless and young to drive a truck.

2.Why didn’t the writer punish Holly?

A.He was so rich that he didn’t care about losing one truck.

B.He thought there was no point punishing her after the accident.

C.He believed the truck was made of metal and of poor quality.

D.He wanted Holly to know he loved her more than any possessions.

3.What does the underlined sentence mean?

A.She still suffered physical pain.

B.She felt guilty of damaging the car.

C.It left a deep wound on her soul.

D.She was not forgiven by her Dad.

4.Which of the following would be the best title for the passage?

When 7-year-old Warren Buffett said, “I will be the richest man one day,” his friends made fun of his “daydreaming”. But ever since then the little boy has set about learning how to make money by selling drinks, delivering newspaper and buying stocks. The American had already earned $9,000 (equal to $90,000 today) by the time he graduated from the high school.

And this month the 78-year-old, who earned his fortune by making a lot of sound investment in the stock market, took the place of Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, as the world’s richest man. Gates’ worth declined $1.5 billion to $55.5 billion in 33 days after the recent financial storm, according to Forbes Magazine.

Buffett, the only son of a stockbroker, was ready to think outside the box to develop his business from a very early age. At 8, he went to golf courses collecting and selling the used balls. At 11 when he sold soda pop door-to-door with a friend, the pair collected lids on streets to judge which flavor was the most popular.

As a paper boy during high school, Buffett delivered two competitor papers, so that even when customers canceled one of the subscriptions (订阅) , he could still make a profit from the other. With his paper delivery savings, Buffett bought 162,000 square meters of farmland and collected rent. Young Buffett stepped into the stock market at 11 but earned only $5. The experience taught him one of the virtues(优点)in investing patience.

After graduating from university, Buffett started his venture with stocks with his childhood earnings and money from friends. He researched the stocks and just bought those of solid companies that were undervalued and inexpensive at the time. By sticking to companies such as American Express and Coca-Cola, Buffett has become rich.

“Learning is important to Buffett’s success. He is a learning machine who can spend his entire day reading. He keeps learning from books, street smarts and investigation, from both success and failure. In this way, he over achieved his aptitude (能力),” said Charlie Munger, his longtime business partner.

Scientists have not come close to understanding all the different kinds of life on the planet, but US researcher Craig Venter is already working on creating the first artificial life.

Venter and his researchers made a breakthrough this August. They successfully moved the DNA of one type of bacteria(细菌) to a yeast(酵母) cell, changed it, then put it into another bacterial cell.

“Bacteria have systems that protect them from foreign DNA,” Venter explained to the BBC. In the experiment, the team managed to block this system.

The experiment was performed on a simple type of bacteria called Mycoplasma mycoides. The team took the bacteria’s genes and put them into a yeast cell.

Putting the DNA in a yeast cell allowed the team to change the genes----in this case, taking out a gene that was not necessary for the bacteria to live.

They then put the gene into a host bacteria cell. The cell went on to divide normally, producing new healthy bacteria.

In January, the team created artificial genes of a new type of bacteria. Their next goal is to put the artificial DNA into a host cell to create a new species, according to a report in Science magazine.

“If we don’t make any errors, I think it should work and we should have the first artificial species by the end of the year,” Venter said in the report.

The first artificial life from is likely to be a simple man-made bacteria, to prove that the technology can work. But that form will be followed by more complex bacteria that turn coal into cleaner natural gas, or algae that can take in carbon dioxide and change it into fuel.

Many scientists think it’s good news to have this artificial life, but others are worried that the technology to create new organisms might end up in the wrong hands, with dangerous results.

1.Craig Venter and his team are working to ______.

A.create a new animal

B.clone a new species

C.produce the first artificial bacteria

Alfred Alder, a famous psychiatrist, had an interesting experience. When he was a small boy he got off to a poor start in arithmetic. His teacher got the idea that he had no ability in arithmetic, and told his parents what she thought in order that they would not expect too much of him. In this way, they too developed the idea, “Isn’t it too bad that Alfred can’t do arithmetic?” He accepted their mistaken estimate of his ability, feeling that it was useless to try, and that he was very poor at arithmetic, just as they expected.

One day he became very angry at the teacher and the other students because they laughed when he said he saw how to do a problem which none of the other students had been able to solve.

Adler succeeded in solving the problem. This gave him confidence. He rejected the idea that he couldn’t do arithmetic and was determined to show them that he could. His anger and his new found confidence stimulated him to go at arithmetic problems with a new spirit. He now worked with interest, determination, and purpose, and he soon became extraordinarily good at arithmetic. He not only proved that he could do arithmetic, but he learned early in life from his own experience that, if a person goes at a job with determination and purpose, he may astonish himself as well as others by his ability.

This experience made him realize that many people have more ability than they think they have, and that lack of success is as often the result of lack of knowledge of how to apply one’s ability, lack of confidence, and lack of determination as it is the result of lack of ability.

1.Alfred gained confidence in learning arithmetic_______.

A.after he managed to find a solution to a difficult problem

B.after his teacher made his parents know his ability in arithmetic

C.after he grew up and became famous

D.after his parents gave him encouragement

2.In Alfred’s opinion, if a person is unsuccessful, he may be_______.

A.slow- thinking.      B.disabled           C.self-centered       D.undetermined

3.The last sentence of paragraph 1 implies________.

A.Alfred thought he couldn’t change others’ mind

B.Alfred agreed with the wrong judgment

C.Alfred believed it was no use learning arithmetic

D.Alfred expected that he could succeed though it was hard

4.What can we conclude from the text?

A.Alfred has a strong determination and a firm belief

B.Others’ opinions are important

C.A person lacking in ability can still succeed

D.Alfred’s teacher and classmates will regret.

Sometimes educators need to be reminded that their job is important and they are very much appreciated. Here are some movies that inspire us and make educators feel proud to be in the field of education where they really do have an impact.

The Miracle Worker

The ultimate teaching miracle, Anne Bancroft is awesome as Annie Sullivan who uses ‘tough love' to get through to the deaf and blind Helen Keller played by Patty Duke. Very few people can watch the famous ‘water' scene without experiencing a feeling of victory and relief. Excellent portrayal of the importance of perseverance. Both Bancroft and Duke won an Academy Award for their performances.

The Karate Kid

While not normally thought of as a ‘classroom' movie, The Karate Kid has much to say to teachers: Sometimes we have to have our students do things that they will not understand until much later; Basic skills are most important; Honor and integrity are central to character; Students need to see us beam with excitement over their achievements. A fun, nostalgic and inspiring movie to relish.

To Sir With Love

Produced in 1967, this film with Sidney Poitier as a novice teacher has a lot to teach us today. Poitier takes a teaching position in the rough part of London in order to pay his bills. Realizing that his students need to be taught important life lessons more than the curriculum he has been handed to teach them, he throws out the lesson plans and makes a real impact on their personal lives.

Mr. Holland's Opus

This memorable movie gives all teachers hope that they truly have an impact on their students. Richard Dreyfuss is wonderful as a musician/composer who must take a teaching job to support his family. In the end, Dreyfuss' character realizes that he has had as much if not more of an impact from his teaching ashe would have as a composer.

1.The four films above are specially intended for_______.

BEIJING - The country's top health officials state that an international charity's decisions not to give millions of dollars to Chinese organizations that fight AIDS and other diseases will not bring about the end of those organizations. 

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria announced on Monday that it will withhold $95 million from the $270 million in grants(补助金) it had planned to give China. That decision came as the result of months of discussion between the charity and Chinese officials. 

On the mainland, a large number of programs meant to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS have received money from the Global Fund. Many observers now fear that the announced cut will undermine those organizations' work. 

Chen Zhu, the minister of health, said officials have found a way to limit the harm. “In the coming five years, the Chinese government will constantly increase its financial support of social organizations, particularly those that work to control and prevent HIV/AIDS.” Chen said while addressing the 6th Experience Exchange Conference of International Cooperation Program on HIV/AIDS in China on Monday. 

In a recent survey of more than 200 organizations taking part in the fight against HIV/AIDS on the mainland, nearly 80 percent of them said they had received grants from the Global Fund. About 83 percent of them said they will find it difficult to continue operating without financial support from abroad, it said. Official statistics showed the Global Fund has given China $548 million in grants since 2003. 

Xia Jing, leader of a Beijing-based grassroots organization dedicated to controlling AIDS, said: “We were like children fostered by foreign milk. As foreign money began to be withdrawn from China, we were faced with serious financial hardships.” Han Mengjie, executive director of Global Fund China Programs, said the Chinese government has fully recognized the important role social organizations play in controlling diseases. “The work done and efforts made by such organizations must be sustained for a long time to supplement the government's intervention work,”he said, “We have to face the truth that international money for AIDS control will gradually leave China and to prepare ourselves to deal with that.” 

1.Which sentence is the closest to the title of the passage?

A.China will have to fight against AIDS alone, though facing financial hardship.

B.Chinese organizations of fighting against AIDS and other diseases won’t receive money from international charity.

C.The fight against AIDS won’t be stopped by the withdraw of money from charity in China.

D.Chinese organizations of fighting against AIDS and other diseases will be reduced to despair.

2.According to Han Mengjie, which of the following is the most possible action to be taken?

A.Chinese government is expected to seek help from social organization to control diseases

B.Chinese government shouldn’t rely too much on social organizations

C.Social organizations’ work and efforts won’t make much difference to the fight against AID

D.We Chinese are well prepared for the international money’s withdraw from China

3.How much money will China have received from Global Fund by the end of this year ?

A.$818             B.$548             C.$ 270            D.$723

4.What implication can we get from the passage?

Learning how to be patient with people can be challenging for some. After all, not everybody is gifted with great patience. The good news is that it is something that can be learned and eventually perfected.

When the customer before you takes ages to pay for his or her groceries, you tap your foot impatiently and cough every now and then; but no, the customer is still not hurrying up. It takes all of your power not to make a scene.  However, if you picture that customer to be someone you like (say your partner), then you will find yourself not getting too annoyed, right? So the next time you find yourself losing patience with somebody, simply visualize that person to be someone you really, really like and your patience will extend its life.

The second step on how to be patient with people involves whistling. When you whistle a happy tune, you instantly cheer up. You can sing your favorite song if you can't whistle - it really doesn't make a difference. What's important here is that you have done something that makes you feel good. And when you feel good, you are more likely to be patient with the people around you.

Next, when you're stressed, it's almost impossible to learn how to be patient with people. If you know you're going to be in a situation where your patience will be tested, meditate or get yourself a massage(按摩) first. Don't dive into anything unless you've managed to clear yourself off negative emotions. Remember: the more stressed you are, the faster you'll lose your temper. The less stress you have in your life, the longer your patience.

Learning how to patient with people is not a necessity in life. You've seen people who manage to survive day to day with incredibly bad tempers after all. But do you really want to live like they do? If, however, you want a life that has better quality than that, then just follow these steps and embrace the fact that patience is a virtue.

1.what does the underlined phrase in paragraph 2 mean?

A.quarrel publicly                        B.make something appear

C.drive away                             D.feel happy

2.Which of the following can best summarize the topic of paragraph2?

A.We should love everyone around us.

B.Show your impatience when your customers aren’t in a hurry.

C.Think of others fondly.

D.To be patient is really difficult occasionally.

3.When you realized that your patience is being examined, you should________.

A.it is possible to control it

B.let it known by whoever you are facing

C.do whatever you like and don’t care what others say

D.learn to relax yourself in a possible way

4.Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the text?

A.We have to learn to be patient with others because it can benefit us.

There’s been a lot of talk about white-and-blue collar workers, and you may have even heard of gold collar workers, but lately a new color of collar is making its way into China’s urban vernacular(土话)—green. Green collars say no when work is life and life is work. They choose to get out of the fast lane(车道), and explore new ways of living “green”.

Living green doesn’t mean someone is working as an environmentalist, biologist or scientist. Instead it is more of a lifestyle choice. A typical green collar is well educated like a white-collar but physically tough like a blue-collar, likely born in the 70s or 80s of the last century and living in one of China’s big cities, with a monthly income well above 5,000 yuan (about US $700).

The life of a green collar may go something like this; Turn off the mobile phone after work, eat only healthy food rich in vitamins, go on hikes every weekend, and like to help the underprivileged. 

Green collars even have their own club. In Beijing, the Green Collar Club is for people who share a “be happy, healthy and helpful” spirit. The club often holds charity parties and uses the donations for environmental protection and poverty relief(摆脱贫困)projects in China.

Prison Break is a huge hit thanks to its handsome star, Wentworth Miller. His character, Michael Scofield, is the engine that drives the show.

Having committed a crime to get into prison and break out with his innocent brother, Michael Scofield is one of the most interesting personalities on TV today. But what about the man behind the character?

Miller,35, is a hard guy to figure out. He does not come from a normal background and has never lived his life in a typical way.

Miller didn’t take direct path to fame and fortune. He graduated from Princeton University in 1995, not with a degree in theatre of film, but in English. He didn’t even act when he was in college. His only performance experience was in his university’s singing group. Yet , at graduation Miller still decided to make the move to Hollywood.

Miller has always been different. Although he is American, he was in Britain when his father was studying there. His family background is also a special mix of cultures. “My father is black and my mother is white. That means I have always been caught in the middle. I could be either one, which can make you feel out of place,” Miller says.

Following his unusual path, Miller did not start trying out for films and TV shows when he

first went to Hollywood. Instead, he worked as a lowly production assistant. Not what you would expect from a Princeton graduate. However, it all paid off for Miller in the end.  

In 2002, Miller played a role in the drama Dinotopia(《恐龙帝国》). He starred as a thoughtful and shy man. Producers remembered his performance when they were casting Prison Break two years later. With a golden globe nomination(提名)and another season of Prison Break on his resume, Miller seems ready to take over all of Hollywood.

Restaurants in Europe, the United States and Japan are testing technology to let diners order their food direct from a screen at their table instead of depending on a fellow human being to note their choice.

Besides cutting costs, companies that sell the “e-menus” argue the bytes-for-bites way has a new value that can attract younger customers, and various photographs of steaks and gooey desserts attract diners to order more. It also could extend the TV dinner. How about a computer game dinner?

“It's about impulse-buying,” said Adi Chitayat, Conceptic’s CEO. “If a person starts looking at pictures of chocolate cake, the chances are he'll order it.” Frame, a restaurant in Tel Aviv with the system, is said to have its sales on tables with the e-menu increased by about 11% . Customers often call ahead to reserve (预定)spots equipped with screens, manager Natalie Edry told Reporters.

At one of the e-menu tables, IT worker Gil Uriel and his young family were enthusiastic as they checked out pictures of the dishes on offer and squabbled(争吵)overdesserts. “It’s more visual,” says Uriel, as his children clicked away furiously on a games function between courses. “We can still choose, we can still argue —but it’s much easier when we can all see it.”

The quest for success always begins with a target. As Berra once said , "you get to be very careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there."

Too many people wander through life like sleepwalkers. Each day they follow familiar routines, never asking, "What am I doing with my life?"and they don't know what they're doing because they lack goals.

Goal-setting is a focus of the will to move in a certain direction. Begin with a clear conception of what you want. Write down your goals and date them---putting them into words clarifies them. Rather than concentrating on objects to acquire and possess, focus on fulfilling your desires to do, to produce, to contribute to goal-setting that yields the true sense of satisfaction we all need.

It’s important to visualize(想象)yourself accomplishing your goal. While losers visualize the penalties(不利) of failure, winners visualize the rewards of success. I’ve seen it among athletes, statistics contrasting air and highway safety, but it made no difference. I had read too many articles describing crash scenes and imagined these scenes vividly. I had programmed myself, without realizing it ,to stay off planes.

Then one summer I had the opportunity to fly on a private plane with friends to a resort; I didn’t want to miss out on a great vacation. So I spent two weeks imagining a smooth flight on a beautiful sunny day and an easy landing.

When the day arrived, I was eager to go . To everyone's surprise, I got on the plane and I loved every minute of it , and I still use the techniques I employed that day.

1.According to the passage, if you want to be successful ,the first thing for you to do is to         .

A.he didn’t know air travel is safer than highway travel

B.he couldn’t imagine himself accomplishing his goal

C.he read too much about plane crashes and tried to avoid flying

D.he wanted to take a private plane instead of a public one

The Human Science and Advanced Technology Institute at Loughborough in the UK is part of an international research program.   2 That will mean much saving, no accidents and better use of roads. The super-intelligent car of the 21st century will drive itself,   3 . Instead,we will have a choice of cars and change them as frequently as we change our clothing.

According to Dr.David Davis,who leads the research team,these predictions are based on the rising cost of the car culture,which had blocked up our cities,polluted our air, and caused more deaths than both world wars put together.

Davis says,cars will be fitted with some intelligent devices(装置) to regulate(调节) the distance between one car and another.   4 Computers are much safer drivers than people,so cars in a road train will be able to drive much closer together than cars driven by people.

By 2010,Dr.David Davis believes,car technology will give motorists a clear view of the road,whatever the weather conditions,by projecting an image(影像)of the road ahead on to the car’s windscreen.  5 Cars will be connected by an electronic bar to the car in front to form “road-trains”. “The front vehicle in such a train burns the normal amount of fuel.” says Davis. “ But all the others in the train would burn about ten percent of the normal amount,and so produce about ten percent of the pollution.”

A.The team there believes that by 2030 all cars will be computerized.

B.They believe that cars will become more important in 20 years.

C.And it will not be owned by one individual.

D.And by 2030, cars will travel in line, linked to each other electronically.

E.So the idea that in 20 years’ time, no one will own cars may be hard to believe.

F.Every driver will use less fuel in the car he owns.

G.The car will automatically speed up, or slow down, to match the speed of the car in front.

Competitors who wear red win more than those that are dressed in any other color, according to a study in Germany.

1

Experts believe that red could make individuals and teams feel more confident as well as being perceived by others as more aggressive.

2 On the other hand, the results could suggest that the success of those teams has given those that wear the red color more confidence.

The study, by German sports psychologists at the University of Munster, was reported in New Scientist magazine. They showed video recordings of taekwondo(跆拳道) matches to 42 experienced referees(裁判). One fighter wore blue and the other wore red.

They then showed them the same recordings but digitally manipulated(操纵) the clothing to exchange the colors. 3

“If one competitor is strong and the other is weak, it won’t change the outcome of the fight,” said Norbert Hagemann, who led the study. “4

In 2004 scientists at Durham University also looked at how color influenced sporting competitiveness. They analyzed Olympic contest sports such as boxing, tawkwondo, and freestyle wrestling and found that nearly 55 percent of which were won by the competitor in red.

5” said Robert Burton, one of the researchers.

A.It is the color of fire and is often associated with energy, danger, strength, power, and determination.

B.The fighters wearing red were given an average of 13 percent more points than when they wore blue.

C.The study shows that football shirts from worldwide teams such as Arsenal, Liverpool, sell successfully.

D.It is reasonable that wearing red makes individuals feel more confident, although this hasn’t yet been tested.

E. Researchers found that those who wear red tops, jackets or clothing score 10 percent more in any competition than if they were in another color.

F. The findings could explain why Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal have been so successful.

G. But the closer the levels, the easier it is for the color to tip the scale

The water we drink and use was running short. We all have to learn what

to stop wasting water. One of the steps that we should take are to find ways of

reusing it. Today in the most large cities, fresh water is used only once and

then it runs in waste system. But that is possible to pipe the used water to a

purifying factory, there the used water can be treated with chemical materials

by the workers so that it can reused. But even if every large city purified and

My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy.  I mean, he was friendly. So I said, “Why
