IV Reading comprehension A
“Image is everything，” An entire industry has been built upon the assumption that image is everything, but
when it comes down to it, an appealing image is not enough，If there is no substance？事实， behind the image, the product, service or person will fail eventually，
First of all, one should consider how important image is in the selling of products and services，Advertising agencies have raised the art of creating an image to a state of near perfection，Public concept of that product or
service is certainly managed by the images created by the advertising agencies，But if the product or service does
not live up to the image that was created, the customer will be very dissatisfied and possibly ask for their money back，For example, the Arthur Andersen accounting firm had spent decades building up an image of trustworthiness，But the recent scandal ？丑闻， showed that behind that image, it cheated in business
practices，Despite the previous positive image, the firm is being accused of criminal actions and it will probably not survive as a business unit，Although the image had been nearly perfect, the reality behind the image has led to the downfall of the world famous accounting firm，
Similarly, personal advisers can build up a public image for politicians and movie stars，Putting out positive
news releases, making sure that only the best photographs are published, and ensuring that the person is seen in all the right places can build up a very positive image in the view of the general commons，But once again, history is
filled with examples of both politicians and movie stars that fell from grace like the story of the Hollywood actor giving in to the pressures of fame and fortune，With people, just as with products and services, image is certainly important, but without positive substance behind the image, failure is close，
To summarize, it is clear that an appealing image is extremely important to success, whether that image is related to selling a product or service or to the “selling” of a person，But image is only half of the equation，What
lies behind that image is every bit as important as the image itself —— the person or product must deliver on that
image or there is little chance for long-term success，
1，The downfall of the Arthour Andersen accounting firm is due to ________，
A，its dishonesty in business B，its previous images C，its bad management D，its poor service
2，Why did some famous people fall from grace?
A，Their images were not well built up B，They failed to live up to their images，
C，They felt much pressure from the public D，They paid little attention to fame and fortune，
3，The structure of the passage is ________， A: Argument P: Point C: Conclusion
4，The author tries to argue that _________，A，image creates everything B，image is the key to success
C，truth is unlikely ever to be equaled D，truth and image are equally important
Forget Twitter and Facebook, Google and the Kindle. Television is still the most influential medium around. Indeed ,for many of the poorest regions(地区)of the world, it remains the next big thing——finally becomes
globally available. And that is a good thing, because the TV revolution is changing lives for the better.
Across the developing world, around 45% of families had a TV in 1995; by 2005 the number had climbed above 60%. That is some way behind the U.S. , where are more TVs than people, and where people now easily get access to the Internet. Five million more families in sub-Saharan Africa will get a TV over the next five years. In 2005 , after the fall of the Taliban？塔利班，,which had outlawed TV, 1 in 5 Afghans had one. The global total
is another 150 million by 2013——pushing the numbers to well beyond two thirds of families.
Television’s most powerful effect will be on the lives of women. In India, researchers Robert Jensen and Emily Oster found that when TVs reached villages, women were more likely to go to the market without their
husbands’ approval and less likely to want a boy rather than a girl. They were more likely to make decisions over child health care. TV is also a powerful medium for adult education. In the Indian state of Gujarat, Chitrageet is a
popular show that plays Bollywood songs with words in Gujarati on the screen. Within six months, viewers had made a small but significant(有意义的) improvement in their reading skills.
Too much TV has been associated with violence, overweight and loneliness. However, TV is having a positive influence on the lives of billions worldwide.
5. The underlined word “outlawed” in paragraph 2 probably means “ ”.
A. allowed B. banned C. offered D. refused

C.45% of families in the developing countries had a TV in 2005.
D. Over two thirds of families in the world will have a TV by 2013.
7. The author intends to _________________________________ .
A. stress the advantages of TV to people’s lives B. persuade women to become more independent
C. encourage people to improve their reading skills D. introduce the readers some websites such as Google 8.What would be the best title for the passage? A. TV Will Rule the World B.TV Will Disturb the World
C.TV Will Better the World D.TV Will Remain in World
In addition to self-awareness, imagination, and conscience, it is the fourth quality — independent will — that
really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in agreement with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to actively carry out the program we have developed through the other three qualities.
The human will is an amazing thing. Time after time, it has overcome unbelievable difficulties. The Helen Kellers of this world give dramatic(给人深刻印象的) evidence to the value, the power of the independent will.
But as we examine this quality in the context of effective self-management, we realize it’s usually not the
dramatic, the visible(可见的), the once-in-a-lifetime, up-by-the-bootstraps(自立自强的) effort that brings lasting
success. This special ability comes from learning how to use this great quality in the decisions we make every day.
The degree to which we have developed our independent will in our everyday lives is measured by our personal honesty. Honesty is, fundamentally, the value we place on ourselves. It’s our ability to make and keep promises to ourselves, to “walk our talk.”
Effective management is putting first things first. While leadership decides what “first things” are, it is
management that puts them first, day-by-day, moment-by-moment. Management is discipline (training to be self-controlled), carrying it out.
Discipline obtains from belief—belief in a set of values, belief in an overriding(最主要的) purpose, to a
long-term or short term goal that must be carried out.
In other words, if you are an effective manager of yourself, your discipline comes from within; it is a function of your independent will. You are a follower of your own deep values and their source. And you have the will, the quality to control your feelings and moods rather than depend on others or have your work half done.
