British writer J.K. Rowling hinted (暗示) last Thursday that she may not stop at seven books about the adventures of Harry Potter.
It was a live Web chat to mark World Book Day. And, Rowling---who has always
insisted that she would write only seven Potter books---was asked by a fan if she
intended to write books about Harry after he leaves Hogwarts, the academy for wizards
(巫师学院).“Probably not. But I’ll never say never. That’s because every time I do I immediately break the vow (誓言),” she replied.
Rowling, whose wealth was recently estimated at US$ 1 billion, is writing the
sixth Potter book. In the Web chat, she was flooded with 16, 000 questions from
devoted readers of her wizard sagas (英雄传奇).
The release in June last year of the fifth book was billed as the world’s biggest
book launch. Asked what would happen if fiction became fact, Rowling said, “I think
I’d most like to spend a day with Harry. I’d take him out for a meal and apologize for everything I put him through.”
Then she jokingly warned that even tougher times faced Potter. “In Book Six,
the wizard world is really at war again. And he has to make himself useful.”
“If I was Harry Potter, I would hide because I know what is coming,” she said.

A. has finished writing all the books about Harry Potter

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is in a difficult situation over cloned animals. The group tentatively (试验性地) concluded in late October that meat and milk from cloned animals is safe to eat, exciting farmers who are developing clones of cows and other creatures. But almost immediately, one of the FDA’s advisory committees sharply questioned the conclusion and the science behind it.
In evaluating (评估) food from cloned animals, the group carried out two tests in October.
One test, it said, compared clones at different stages of life to healthy ordinary animals to determine whether they appear the same. The second and more exact test could includes tests on the meat and milk of clones. When the FDA concluded that cloned animals appeared to be safe to eat, critics pointed out that the group seemed to depend almost only on the first test.
“Most of the things we evaluate for safety, we can tell the risk might be,” said Stephen
Sundlof, director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary medicine. “When you are talking about
cloning, it’s very different because we have not been able to recognize a particular danger.”
Joseph Mendelson, Legal director for the non-profit Center for Food Safety, called the FDA’s
report a very strange one for its lack of research. “Healthy animals equal safe food. I agree with
that on some level,” Mendelson said. “But we don’t know if these animals are healthy. What if
they appear healthy, and there’s some metabolic (新陈代谢) difference that’s caused by a genetic
fault? They don’t have those studies.”
65. What does the passage mainly discussed?
A. Whether food from cloned animals is safe to eat.
B. Food from cloned animals is certainly safe to eat.
C. Cloned animals can provide food to solve the food problem.
D. Only science can decide whether food from cloned animals is safe or not. 66. Some experts sharply questioned the conclusion because .
A. they had exact proof to prove it wrong
B. they thought further research should be made into cloned animals
C. there is much difference between ordinary animals and cloned ones
D. cloned animals appear healthy but there is a genetic fault in them 67. Which of the following statements is true according to the passage?
A. The conclusion made by the FDA was drawn from two tests.
B. Food from cloned animals is surely safe to eat.
C. The legal director for the non-profit Center for Food Safety more valued the second test.
D. The farmers raising cloned animals are probably disappointed by the conclusion. 68. What does the underlined word “it” in the first paragraph refer to?
A. The FDA. B. The science.
C. The conclusion. D. One of the FDA’s advisory committees.
Lifeguard, sportscaster, movie star, governor, president — there wasn’t much
Ronald Reagan didn’t do in life.
"The world was a vast opportunity for him," Lou Cannon wrote in his biography (传记) of the former US president, who died on June 5, aged 93.
Reagan’s final years saw him fight a losing battle against Alzheimer’s disease
(老年痴呆症). But his positive attitude toward life has given hope to many people.
Born in 1911 to a poor family in a small town in Illinois, his father was a failed salesman who drank too much. It was in these difficult times, though, that Reagan developed the powerful optimism (乐观) that would serve him so well. He always
believed better times laying ahead, and this was reflected in his high school yearbook entry. "Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music," he wrote.
As a teenager, Reagan spent summers working as a lifeguard at a local beach, saving 77 lives in seven years. He graduated from college in 1932 with a degree in economics and sociology. But America was still in the middle of the Great Depression, and jobs were hard to find. Reagan finally found work as a radio sports announcer and this road led him to Hollywood in 1937.
During the 20 year film career, he never became a leading star. As in his lifeguard days, Reagan loved to play the hero and only took the role of a bad guy once in more than 50 films.
A talented speaker who was always able to connect with his audience, Reagan became involved in politics in the 1950s. This popular touch led to him being elected the governor of California in 1967.
All the while Reagan was in California, he had his eye on the White House. In 1980, aged 69, he became the oldest man ever elected president.
He held office from 1981 to 1989, the first president to serve two complete terms after World War ?. When he left, aged 77, he held the highest popularity rate of any retiring president in US history.
He remained positive even when he discovered he had an illness that would destroy him. "I will leave with the greatest love for this country of ours and eternal (永恒的) optimism for its future," he wrote.
69. Reagan can be best described as a man with______.
A. firmness B. humour C. optimism D. talent
70. What didn’t Reagan do in his life time?
A. Playing the role of a bad guy. B. Being a leading star of the film.
C. Saving people’s lives. D. Working as a radio sports announcer.
71. Which is the correct order of events described in the passage?
a. Reagan fought a losing battle against Alzheimer’s disease.
b. Reagan became an actor.
c. Reagan worked as a lifeguard.
d. Reagan graduated from college.
e. Reagan was elected the governor of California.
A. a, c, d, e ,b B. e, c, d, b, a C. b, a, c, d, e D. c, d, b, e, a
72. When the author of Reagan’s biography says "The world was a vast opportunity
for him," he really means that _______.
A. Reagan achieved much in his whole life
B. Reagan could have done much better
C. Reagan did much for America and the world
D. Reagan was a very lucky man
I dreamed I had an interview with God. “So you would like to interview me?” God asked. “If you have the time,” I said. “My time is eternity；永恒的~.” God smiled, “What questions do
you have in mind for me?” “What surprises you most about humankind?” God answered, “That they get bored with childhood, they rush to grow up, and then long to be children again. That they lose their health to make money... and then lose their money to restore their health. That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live in neither the present nor the future. That they live as if they will never die, and die as though they had never
God’s hand took mine and we were silent for a while. And then I asked, “As a parent, lived.”
what are some of life’s lessons you want your children to learn?” “To learn they cannot make anyone love them. All they can do is to let themselves be loved. To learn that it is not good to compare themselves to others. To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness. To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in those they love, and it can take many years to heal them. To learn that a rich person is not one who has the most, but is one who needs the least. To learn that there are people who love them dearly, but simply have not yet learned how to express or show their feelings. To learn that two people can look at the same thing and see it differently. To learn that it is not enough that they forgive one another, but they must also forgive themselves.” “Thank you for your time,” I said humbly. “Is there anything else you would like your children to know?” God smiled and said; “Just know that I am here always.”
73. To God’s eye, a rich man is one who _________.
A. lives a simple life B. is content with little
C. doesn’t want to be rich D. gives others a lot
74. Which of the following is best supported by the text?
A. God does exist in the world.
B. He who loves others is sure to be loved by others.
C. When one makes a mistake, he should try to find an excuse to forgive himself.
D. It is easier to lose a friend than to make a friend.
75. The author wrote the passage to _________.
A. invite people to believe in God
B. present people’s wrong attitudes to life and give advice on how to live happily
C. show what is important in life
D. give God’s opinions of humankind and lessons God wants us to learn
Mike Smith, Tom Brown, Bob Davis, Baker, Slater are giving their opinions on the strike；罢工~
It wasn’t an easy decision, but we’ve been asking for a decent wage for years. Now at last people are beginning to listen to us because we work day and night to keep this country alive and what do we get?-200 dollars a week. That’s not enough to raise a family at today’s prices. Inflation this
year was 32 percent. We’ve only asking for a 25 percent increase in our wages. 250 dollars a week, that’s all. It’s a pity so many people have to be inconvenienced by our strike. That’s what you
should blame. Blame the government for refusing our claim.
It’s totally unreasonable to demand so much money when we are trying desperately to control inflation. If wages go up, so do prices. If we gave in to the electricity workers, all the other unions would want more, with the certain result that the crisis would become uncontrollable. What we’re
trying to impress upon everybody is that inflation hurts everybody, especially the poor people. We offer the electricity workers a 10 percent increase. And that’s already too much. My stand at this
meeting is to persuade the Union to see reason.
Everybody will be hurt by this strike, including the electricity workers themselves. The economy will be destroyed and many people will lose their jobs. Moreover, the very image of the trade union movement will be harmed. Already people are saying that the big unions have too much power and shouldn’t be allowed to strike. Of course the electricity workers want to get more money. Don’t we all? Of course we all do. But we’re not asking for 250 dollars a week. Why
My opinion is“Get the Army in”. All the power stations should be managed by the army. The strikers should be thrown into prison. That’s what this country needs. Why must we all suffer just
because a few men are greedy? If they don’t like their jobs, nobody’s forcing them to work. They
should try and live on 50 dollars a week like I have to. Perhaps they’d keep their mouths shut then.
Let’s face it. It’s neither here nor there. The electricity workers are in a strong position. Perhaps we can’t do anything about it. What I say is: let them have their 250 dollars so we can return to work. I mean, the government wastes the taxpayers’ money all the time on trivial things. How can
anyone say 250 dollars is “too much”? Pop singers get more. Nurses get less. It’s just one of
A?A 10% increase is already too much, and I’m here to persuade the Union to see reasons.
B?We will never go back to work until our goals are achieved.
C?I think that the government should give in to the electricity worker’s demands.
D?I strongly suggest that all the power stations should be run by the army and that the
strikers should be put into prison.
E?I must make you clear that strikes will destroy the economy and that many people will lost
F?We are forced to call a strike because the government rejected our wage claim.
