题卡上将该项涂黑。

A

Automatic dishwashers have been around for more than 100 years. It started in

1886 with Josephine Cochrane, a woman in Shelbyville, Illinois. She was a rich woman

who could afford servants to wash her dishes, so she really didn't mind the work.

What she did mind was that her servants broke the dishes. She hosted quite a few dinner

parties, and after every party the servants broke more of her expensive dishes.

Finally, Cochrane took action. First, she measured her dishes and bent wire into

racks to hold them. Next, she put the racks on a wheel in a large copper boiler. Then,

the boiler sprayed hot, soapy water on the dishes as a motor turned the wheel. After

a hot water rinse(冲洗),the dishes were clean!

Josephine Cochrane's friends were impressed with the machine and asked her to

build more. After that, word got out fast. Soon hotel and restaurant owners who didn't

like broken dishes also were interested. Cochrane then knew that she had a wonderful

machine, so she received a patent from the government, which said that only the

inventor can make money from an invention. Then in 1893 Chicago held a World Fair

where inventions from all over the world were shown. Cochrane's labor-saving machine

was a big hit. Her dishwasher won the highest award.

Cochrane's company came out with a smaller machine in 1914. It was supposed to

be for the ordinary home, but it wasn't an immediate success. Many homes couldn't

produce the extremely hot water it needed. Also, in most homes, dishwashing wasn't

considered very difficult compared to most other housework. In fact some people liked

to relax at the sink after a hard day! Sales of the home model finally picked up in

the 1950s when people had more money and wanted to have more time to enjoy themselves.

Now many homes have electric dishwasher that aren't very different from the one

Josephine Cochrane invented more than 100 years ago.

56. What does the underlined words “After that, word got out fast.” in Paragraph

3 suggest?

A. The machine wasn't as efficient as described.

B. The invention drew immediate attention of the public.

C. Josephine Cochrane could no longer keep it a secret.

D. Josephine's friends soon began to talk about the new machine.

57. The smaller machine became popular only when______.

A. people had more relaxing jobs

B. hot water was not needed

C. people's living conditions improved

D. housework became easier

58. Compared with Cochrane’s invention, modern electric dishwashers_______.

A. cost less money

B. are quite different

C. wash many other things

D. are much the same

B As a teenage rock fan, all Dennis Vorreyer really expected of the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago two weekends ago was the chance to see his favorite bands perform live.

小学+初中+高中

小学+初中+高中

But he and his father, Jeffrey, who accompanied him to the festival, signed up

for Lollapalooza's text-message network, and thus learned about a guitar-playing

contest taking place there. Dennis, 14, entered and won a new Gibson guitar. Tad Kubler,

the lead guitarist for the Hold Steady, who was involved in the contest, then invited

Dennis to perform with the band as it closed its set.

“Having your cell phone everywhere is important for everybody now,” Dennis said.

“I never dreamed of playing Lollapalooza.” The modern mobile phone --- equipped

with camera, Internet access and more--- has proved to be a liability for some

performers, like Akon and Beyonce, whose regrettable moments were captured by fans

and then immortalized on YouTube and similar sites. But for the fans themselves,

mobile phones are becoming as important an accessory as an all-access wristband.

Beyond using them to record a short souvenir, they are becoming a ticket to everything

from free ringtones to VIP treatment.

On Gwen Stefani's recent tour, as many as 20 percent of the audience at some shows

agreed to pay 99 cents for text messages and the chance to win better seats, according

to the mobile marketing company Impact Mobile. At festivals like Lollapalooza,

thousands of fans sign up to receive continuous updates from concert organizers about

promotions and special events.

Even when there is no fee, the service comes at a price: fans must give their phone

numbers to marketers. And purists --- and some artists --- disapprove of fans pecking

out text messages or snapping pictures during performances. Still, the arrival of

a new generation of phone-based activities could add a new twist to live events at

a time when rising ticket prices have discouraged many concertgoers.

59. What did Dennis originally intend to do at the Lollapalooza music festival?

A. He wanted to keep company his father Jeffrey.

B. He expected to join in the performance with a famous band in the festival.

C. he wanted to see the live performance from his best loved bands.

D. He wanted to attend a guitar-playing contest held in the festival.

60.The underlined word liability in paragraph 3 here means___________.

A. trouble

B. debt

C. responsibility

D. benefit

61.Why did some audience agree to pay money for the text message ?

A. Because they wanted to get better tickets for the concert.

B. Because they wanted to get the free tickets for the concert.

C. Because Gwen Stefani asked them to do so.

D. Because they wanted to have a good holiday

62. The author seems to believe that ____________

A. Dennis Vorreyer was fortunate to perform with the guitar band.

B. phone-based activities will become a turning point for the live events.

C. today cell phone is important and indispensable for everybody.

D. fans shouldn’t peck out text message or snap pictures during performances.

C Cure for tiredness? Staying up late is a potential battle between parents and kids. But the solution

could be as simple as changing your meal time. Researchers at the University of Surry, UK, found that delaying meals could help
change one of the internal body clocks. Besides a “master” clock in the brain, there are clocks in other parts of the body. They are usually synchronized according to factors including light.
During the study, researchers tested 10 participants to examine the effect of changing meal times on their body clocks. The participants were given three meals ---breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the first stage, participants received breakfast 30 minutes after waking. Lunch and dinner followed, after 5-hour intervals. In the second stage, each meal was delayed by 5 hours. Right after each stage, blood and fat samples were collected.
Results showed that later meal times greatly influenced blood sugar levels. A 5-hour delay in meal times caused a 5-hour delay in the internal blood sugar rhythms.
The discovery showed that meal times are in line with the body clock that controls blood sugar levels.
This is a small study but the researchers believe the findings could help jet lag sufferers and night-shift workers.
In a study by the University of Surrey in 2013, researchers explored what happened when a person’s body was changed from a normal pattern to that of a night-shift worker’s.
After people work through the night, over 97 percent of the body’s rhythmic genes are disrupted(扰乱,使混乱).
These findings explain why we feel so bad following a long flight, or after working at night, according to Simon Archer, one of the study’s researchers.
“It’s like living in a house. There’s a clock in every room in the house and in all of those rooms those clocks are now disrupted, which of course leads to chaos in the household,” fellow researcher DerkJan Dijk told the BBC.
Changing meal times didn’t affect the “master” body clock --- the one controlling when we get sleepy --- but it can reset the body clock that controls blood sugar levels. This wouldn’t necessarily cure jet lag completely, but it might reduce the negative effects.
A study published earlier this year suggested that just a weekend camping trip could be enough to reset our body clocks. And now this latest research shows regular food schedules could play a key part too. 63. What did researchers at the University of Surrey find from their new study?
A. Connections between the “master” clock and clocks in other parts of the body. B. Blood sugar levels are affected by when we eat rather than by our internal clocks. C. A delay in meal times causes an irregular change in blood sugar rhythms. D. Changing meal times can be enough to reset one of our body clocks. 64. Which of the following statements is TRUE about the new study, according to the
article? A. The interval between each meal being given was different. B. Blood and fat samples of the two groups of participants were collected. C. Each meal was served five hours later during the second stage.

D. Participants were asked to report their feelings after each stage. 65. What can we learn from the study by researchers at the University of Surrey from
2013? A. All our body’s genes would be disrupted if we worked through the night. B. Our genes often become less active after a long flight or night of work. C. The disruption of one gene could lead to the disruption of other genes. D. A disruption to the body’s rhythmic genes can cause people to feel bad. 66. According to the article, ______. A. it’s impossible to reduce the negative effects caused by jet lag or night work B. there is more than one way to reset body clocks C. the “master” body clock controls all the other body clocks D. a change in meal times can reset the “master” body clock
D It was already midnight and I was walking quickly out of Recovery Room, knowing I had to be back early next morning. Though in a hurry, I noticed a lone woman with an anxious look on her face. As it turned out, her daughter-in-law had just been transferred to Intensive Care, so I decided to take her up there. Down the hall, she stated, “I bet you’re trying to leave, aren’t you?” I confirmed her observation, adding that it was quite all right. We soon arrived, and upon talking with the patient’s nurse, I was able to let her in right away. She turned to me and said, “Thank you, you will be blessed.” The next day, on my way home after my day shift, I noticed a voice mail from my sister in Rochester, which gave me an uneasy feeling. I had to pull off the road as I listened to her message; “Mom had a stroke; she’s in the hospital and the Neurologist said it doesn’t look good.” My mind darted back to the words I had heard the night before as I cried out with anger; “This is a blessing?” The following day I flew up to Rochester. My brother picked me up from the airport and we soon arrived at the hospital. I walked into my mom’s room and she looked as if I had never seen her before. Her usual bright smile was replaced with a look of emptiness. All at once the cruel reality of the signs and symptoms of a fresh stroke were there, but I wasn’t the instructor, I was just a family member. My mom seemed to recognize me, and I fought back tears as I told her how much I loved her. Over the next five days, my mom made unexpected progress, as she began to speak a few words, slowly and almost painfully. With each milestone, it seemed the nurses and aides were almost as excited as we were. Everyone, without exception, treated my mom with kindness and compassion. I think the event that will stay in my memory forever occurred on my mom’s fourth day. It was time to repeat the swallowing study to assess if my mom could start eating. All four of us siblings hung together in the waiting room, nervous, our eyes shifting constantly to the door of 2607, anticipating and desperately hoping for good news. As her door opened, the therapist came out with a smile; we instantly knew she had good news, and we collectively breathed a sigh of relief. Five days after her stroke, my mom was ready for transfer to a rehabilitation facility, and I was headed back down South. With a very heavy heart, I said goodbye
小学+初中+高中

小学+初中+高中

to my mom and the staff from the Stroke Unit.

On the way back home, I had plenty of time to think about my own experiences as

a Recovery Room nurse. I could envision(想象)the smiles on so many of the faces

of our patients as they leave our unit. I was also reminded of the fact that we as

health care givers have a certain power: we can add to the stress of a patient’s

hospital experience, or we can be the one ray of sunshine that leaves a smile on their

face.

Truly, there will always be the pain of knowing that my mom had a stroke, but

my memories will always be tempered by the thoughtful care she received in the Stroke

Unit. I have since reflected on the words of gratitude spoken to me a week earlier

by the visitor I took to the ICU. Yes, I was blessed; it was the kind of blessing

that will warm my heart forever.

67. What actually made the author uneasy?

A. That she sensed something wrong with her mom.

B. That she didn’t believe the blessing she had heard.

C. That she had to listen to a voice mail form her sister.

D. That she must fly up to Rochester the next day.

68. By “I wasn’t the instructor, I was just a family member”, the author was trying

to show ____.

A. sympathy B. anger

C. helplessness

D. respect

69. What can we infer from Paragraph 4?

A. Stroke recovery usually takes five days.

B. Her mother’s case was beyond expectation.

C. The author has been mentally prepared.

D. Empathy (共鸣) with patients makes a difference.

70. According to the passage, the author ____________.

A. doesn’t think a blessing was useful in real life as it didn’t protect her mother

from a stroke.

B. believes she did get the blessing from the visitor.

C. believes everyone should work hard to get blessings from others.

D. thinks health care givers should give their patients blessing so as to make them

smile.

Digitalization could Pay Off in Health and Sustainability With technology permeating (渗透) everything we do, it has led to a significant transformation in the workplace --- specifically, how, where, who is working and what work employees do. The speed of change across industries has also caused greater uncertainty as many businesses rethink the way they manage their talent and real estate. For one, automation and artificial intelligence will change many job functions---particularly jobs and tasks that are manual or process driven. Research has found that the future workforce will be divided into three parts;core employees,

小学+初中+高中

小学+初中+高中
freelancers(自由职业者)and consultants.Core employees will be concentrated in smaller and fewer locations, ideally in central business districts with transportation and amenities(便利设施) concentrated nearby ---reducing their energy and resource usage. This smaller core workforce could mean smaller office footprints requiring less energy from power and less waste produced. In parallel, the appearance of the “liquid workforce”--- freelancers, consultants and more --- means potentially less commuting(通勤) and perhaps a cleaner way of working. The need for flexibility to accommodate the uncertain operating environment and more project-based work could require possibly less material and waste in the building process.
We’ve seen how many forward-thinking organizations have already adopted more efficient real estate management in the form of smart buildings and smart offices. This is essentially powered by the Internet of Things(物联网) to drive efficiency and real-time optimization (最优化)of building operations such as automatic monitoring and optimization of air conditioning --- of particular interest in Asia, where indoor as well as outdoor air quality is a long-time issue.
Some features of smart buildings and workplaces also announce a shift to a less paper-based workplace. Companies are also accepting a whole view of sustainability. They ’re thinking about more than cost-savings or making the most of space. They are considering creating a healthy, fulfilling, and productive environment for employees.
We now speak about healthy buildings instead of simply sustainable ones. In fact, the World Green Building Council now promotes the concept of healthy green buildings---buildings that are not only environmentally sensitive but also provide for the well-being of staff. For instance, buildings with more access to nature and greenery make a significant difference to workers. A survey done last year found that over 90% of those surveyed felt more productive and creative with access to fresh air, indoor light, healthy food, fitness centers and even mental health services.
Overall, the drive towards a digitized workplace and improved employee experience could just lead us to a healthier, happier life and a more sustainable future.

Scientists have observed that humans experience happiness from a wide range of stimuli(刺激), from traveling to an ideal destination to redecorating one’s home or from winning a game of soccer to eating a delicious meal. Simply watching a favorite television show or laughing at a funny joke can lift a depressed mood. While the happiness produced by such experiences tends to be short lived, a wide social network does promote a more long-lasting state of happiness as a lifestyle.
Surprisingly, income is not a primary factor in determining a person’s level of happiness once the basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter have been met. More important is one’s social network. Being socially active may be more effective in increasing one’s immunity(免疫力)to illness than a vaccine. Misery may love company, but so does happiness, and having close friends and family is vital to one’s overall level of happiness. Even sharing one’s home with an animal companion can make a person happier. 【写作内容】 1. 用约 30 个单词概括以上材料的主要内容; 2. 用约 120 个词就“幸福”这一话题谈谈你的理解,内容包括:

书面表达 Scientists have found that although various factors contribute to humans’
happiness, it is one’s social network, rather than one’s income, that plays an important role in promoting the long-lasting state of happiness.
Personally, happiness means achieving success after constant efforts. Take my participation in an English speech competition for example. Initially, I was lacking in confidence in my oral English. However, I held the belief that practice makes perfect. So, I kept practicing speaking English as long as two hours every day and

consulted my English teacher about my pronunciation. Finally, my efforts paid off. When I was awarded the first prize, I felt a strong sense of happiness.

My name is Tami. How may I direct your call? M: I’d like to speak with Alison Simpson, please. (1) She’s a nurse there, but I believe she’s on her break now. It’s about our son Jimmy. Text 2 M: What time is your flight today? W: Well, it was supposed to leave at 2:15 p.m., but the airline just called and told me it was delayed until 7:15 p.m. At least this way, I can take my time and have lunch at home. (2) Text 3 W: You like reading a lot, don’t you? M: Yeah, I find it very relaxing. The one I’m reading now is really exciting. (3) W: It’s that good, huh? M: Oh, yeah. Ever since I started reading it, I haven’t been able to put it down. Text 4 W: I’m sorry to call so early, but I wanted to let you know I’ve come down with something and won’t be able to come into work today. I should be fine by tomorrow afternoon. M: No problem. We’re having an office party tomorrow night, so I hope you’re well enough to come! (4) Text 5 W: Bradley, this coffee tastes a little strange. What did you put in it? M: It’s actually what I didn’t put in it, Rachel! We consume away too much sweet

stuff these days. (5) It’s time for us to get back to natural flavors, don’t you think? Text 6 W: I’m here to pick up the flowers for Anna. M: I’m sorry, but those won’t be ready for another two hours. (6) W: She’s getting married in two hours! I need time to bring them back so that I can set them up before the guests come. (6) (7) M: We haven’t even started putting them together yet. We told you on the phone they’d be ready by noon. It’s only 10:00. (7) W: Is there another flower company that can deliver them in the next thirty minutes? M: I doubt it. Flower companies don’t normally do rush orders. Text 7 W: It’s nice and quiet out here in the countryside. M: My grandpa used to take me fishing here when I was five. W: My parents never took me anywhere when I was little. I guess we went to Los Angeles to visit my aunt and uncle a few times when I was in sixth and seventh grade. (8) But other than that, we just stayed at home. M: It’s important to slow down and breathe some fresh air once in a while. W: Absolutely. So, what’s the plan for the rest of the day? M: I figured we could go hiking and then have a picnic on the top of the hill. (9) W: Awesome! (9) Text 8 M: So, what do you want to study when you go to college, Megan? W: I’m not sure, Mr. Sanders. My dad would be excited if I studied medicine, but that sounds too difficult. I’ve always been interested in art, but I’m not sure if I want to be a professional artist. M: Well, you could study art history. That was my wife’s major, you know. W: Really? What did you major in? M: Oh, I always wanted to be a businessman, so that’s what I did in college. (10) It’s not for everyone, but I liked it. I wish I had taken some other classes, though. If you have a chance to learn about a bunch of different things and then make a decision, I think that would be your best bet. (12) W: That’s good advice, Mr. Sanders. Thanks! M: My pleasure. If you want to talk more, come next door anytime you want. (11) W: I sure will. Thank you! Text 9 M: OK, your bill comes to thirty-six dollars. W: Well, I never carry cash on me any more. Can I just Venmo it to you?(13) M: What does that mean? W: Venmo is an app that you download for your smartphone. (13) It connects to your bank or a credit card, and you can transfer money to other people in about ten seconds. M: What? That’s fast! I’ve used PayPal before, but it sometimes takes several minutes for the transfer to be completed. (14) Plus, they charge you a fee for sending the money.

小学+初中+高中 W: Venmo is free if you use a checking account. But if you use a credit card, I think they charge you a small fee. M: That’s cool. I never use my credit card, anyway. So, what can I do with the money once it’s there? Can I use Venmo at stores? W: You still can’t use it at most restaurants and big chain stores, but a lot of smaller shops accept it. (15) It’s getting more popular all the time. M: All right, how can I sign up for Venmo? W: Download the app from the App Store, and I’ll email you an invitation to join. (16) Text 10 Good morning! I’m Samuel Davis, and this is the ten o’clock news report. I hope everyone is having a fine Monday morning. It’s getting pretty wet out there, so grab an umbrella and stay dry! (17) I’m here today with Matt Miller, who has completed his 29,000-mile journey in just six weeks, with a total of 180 hours in flight. Beginning in California, he made twenty-five stops in fourteen different countries including England, Italy, Greece, Egypt, and Thailand. (18) His final trip was a sixteen-hour flight from Hawaii back to California, just half an hour less than his longest flight from Samoa to Hawaii. (19) Born in South Dakota, Matt is a freshman at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and has said that as a child he was scared of flying. All of that changed when he received his pilot license at just seventeen. After that, he only spent a few years planning everything out before beginning his journey around the world. Matt is here with us today for an interview. Welcome Matt! First, why don’t you tell all our listeners about the craziest thing you saw during your adventure? (20)
