Watson entered Mr Smith‟s office. The Boss was a hard man. He fired people who didn‟t do well
without giving them a second chance.
“Watson,” said Mr Smith, “this past year your department hasn‟t earned money. We‟re going to
drop that department. It‟s finished. I‟ m sorry, —but you‟ll have to go.” “But, sir—if I just had a little more time. For the moment I need the job to keep my son at Riverside School.” “What‟s that!” said the Boss. “Riverside! I didn‟t know you had a boy there. That‟s an expensive school for a man with your salary.”
“1 know, sir. But he likes it there so much! He‟s a star trackman（田径运动员） and the best boxer in the school. The boys call him Champ (冠军) there.”
The Boss sat perfectly still for a long time—a faraway (恍惚的) look in his eyes. Then, suddenly, he said, “We‟ve got to close your department, Watson. But you‟ll take over a new job in another department. It means longer hours—maybe more pay. Now get out. You‟re here for life.” Watson got out, with surprise in his face. Then the Boss took a letter from the top drawer of his
desk. It was Herbie‟s last letter from Riverside School —written a few days before he died. He had
read it over and over again with sick pain. The letter read:
I can’t say the boys here are any nicer to me than the others were. I guess it’s the same
everywhere when you’re a cripple (
). But don’t worry about me, Dad. They’ve got a good 跛脚的人
chemistry department here. And there’s one boy here who is really great. He’s a track star and
boxing champ and just tops in chemistry. The boys call him Champ. He made them stop throwing my
books around. And he knocked a boy down who hit me. He is the best friend I ever had. Dad, when I
grow up, I want to do something for Champ. Something big—that he won’t even know about. Your son,

General Airport Tips
Plan to get to the airport at least an hour early, or two during holidays and other busy times;
this will reduce the stress of the flight. If all goes well, you will have time to relax, shop for
last-minute items, or have a meal before the flight.
Find out why your flight is delayed. Call the free call numbers. Find out if other airlines are
experiencing similar delays. If you believe the delay is due to something other than weather or
air traffic problems, then mention your suspicion (怀疑) and ask the airline agent to book you on the next available flight, either on the same air-line or a competing one. This is called “Rule 240”, and all airlines are required to do it. Use the lingo (行话); ask, “Can you 240 me?” when speaking with an agent. They will know what you mean.
If your flight is canceled, then make a reservation on the next flight to your destination.
Usually, air-line personnel will try to book everyone on their next flight out. Often they will
put you on a competitor‟s next flight only if you request it. If on-time arrival is important to you, when you check flights through our reservation system
you can rate your choices based on their on-time arrival records. Be sure to also check the weather conditions, as they often affect flight schedules.

On this vivid planet, it appears colorful with many world famous buildings. Among these largest
artificial articles in the world, many were designed by the same architect—Ieoh Ming Pei.
Pei, the 1983 Laureate of the Pritzker, Architecture Prize, is a founding partner of I. M. Pei &
Partners based in New York City. He was born in China in 1917, the son of a banker. He came to the
United States in 1935 to study architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the
Harvard Graduate School of Design (M. Arch. 1946).
From 1945 to 1948, Pei taught at Harvard. In 1948 he accepted the newly created post of director
of Architecture at Webb & Knapp, Inc., and this association resulted in major architectural and
planning projects in big cities. In 1958, he formed the partnership（合伙人）of I. M. Pei & Associates,
which became I. M. Pei & Partners in 1966. The partnership received the 1968 Architectural Firm
Award of The American Institute of Architects.
Pei has designed over forty projects in the world, twenty of which have been award winners. His
outstanding projects have included the East Building of the National Gallery of Art, Washington,
D.C.; the John Fitzgerald Kennedy Library near Boston; the Fragrant Hill Hotel near Beijing, China.
Pei is now a member of the National Council on the Arts, and before served on the National
Council on the Humanities. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, a member of the
Royal Institute of British Architects, and an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and
Letters. He is a member of the Corporation of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
As a student, he was awarded the MIT Traveling Fellowship, at Harvard. He later won a lot of
honors. In 1982, the deans of the architectural schools of America chose I. M. Pei as the best

Worrying about how you‟ll perform on a math test may actually contribute to a lower test score,
US researchers said on Saturday.
Math anxiety—feelings of dread and fear and avoiding math—can weaken the brain‟s limited amount of working capacity, a resource needed to calculate difficult math problems, said Mark
Ashcrafi, a psychologist at the University of Nevada Las Vegas who studies the problem.
“It turns out that math anxiety occupies a person‟s working memory,” said Ashcraft, who spoke
at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Francisco.
Ashcraft said while easy math tasks such as addition require only a small part of a person‟s
working memory, harder calculations require much more.
Worrying about math takes up a large part of a person‟s working memory stores as well, spelling
disaster for the anxious student who is taking a high-stakes test ( 高风险测验). Stress about how one does on tests like college entrance exams can make even good math
students choke. “All of a sudden they start looking for the short cuts,” said University of Chicago
researcher Sian Beilock.
Although test preparation classes can help students get over this anxiety, they are limited to
students whose families can afford them.
Finally, she said, “It may not be wise to rely completely on scores to predict who will succeed.”
While the causes of math anxiety are unknown, Ashcraft said, “People who manage to get over math anxiety have completely normal math ability.”
68. Sian Beilock points out that stress________.
A. can‟t be avoided before college entrance exams
B. contributes to scores in college entrance exams
C. has no effects on good math students
D. has side effects on students in college entrance exams
69. What does the underlined word “spelling” probably mean? A. causing B. reducing C. taking away D. preparing for
70. What can we learn from the text?
A. The causes of math anxiety have already been found.
B. All of the students attend test preparation classes.
C. Math anxiety weakens working memory needed to do math.
D. Few measures can be taken to get rid of math anxiety.
71. What does the passage suggest middle school students do before exams?
A. Get relieved. B. Review lessons. C. Go to the doctor‟s. D. Rely on scores.
By Zhang Youlv (China Daily 09/29/2008)—A manned lunar (月球的) landing is China‟s next target when the current three-stage space program ends in 2020. “When our manned space program is completed, we will travel even further,” Wang Zhaoyao, deputy head of China‟s manned space
program office and Shenzhou VII mission spokesman, told a briefing in Beijing three hours after
China‟s third manned space mission was successfully concluded yesterday.
“After comprehensively analyzing the general trend of the international development of manned
space, as well as realities in China, we see a manned lunar landing as a both challenging and tactical
(策略的) field in global hi-tech,” he said.
“We believe it necessary for our country to do something in this field,” Wang said. He did not give a specific(具体的) date for a moon landing. Wang, however, said, “Experts
believe this is „very much needed‟ for research into relevant (closely connected) technologies to
further China‟s achievements in space.”
The 68-hour Shenzhou VII mission featured a 25-minute spacewalk on Saturday.
It was broadcast live and watched by millions throughout the country. The crew‟s landing at a
site in the Inner Mongolia autonomous region was also carried live by national television.
The entire mission was pronounced a complete success.
Wang said the three astronauts, were transported to Hohhot, the region‟s capital, and would
spend the evening there.
“They will return to Beijing this morning,” he said.
“During the course of the mission, Russian experts provided strong technical support for the
EVA spacesuits. The successful Sino-Russian cooperation for this flight created beneficial conditions
for more intensive cooperation between the two sides in the future,” Wang said. The mission‟s success has paved the way for completing the second stage of the
program—building a space station before 2020.
Before that, a space lab will be set up in 2010 with Shenzhou X, the country‟s next full-crew
72. When will China‟s spaceship land on the moon?
