Doctors say anger can be an extremely damaging emotion, unless you learn how to deal with it. They warn that anger can lead to heart disease, stomach problems, headaches, emotional problems and possibly cancer.
Anger is a normal emotion that we all feel from time to time. Some people express anger openly in a calm reasonable way. Others burst with anger, and scream and yell (咆哮). But other
people keep their anger inside. They can not or will not express it. This is called repressing anger.
For years many doctors thought that repressing anger was more dangerous to a person’s
health than expressing it. They said that when a person is angry, the brain releases the same hormones (荷尔蒙). They speed the heart rate, raise blood pressure, or sugar into the blood, etc. In
general, the person feels excited and ready to act.
Some doctors say that both repressing and expressing anger can be dangerous. They believe that those who express anger violently may be more likely to develop heart disease, and they believe that those who keep their anger inside may face a greater danger of high blood pressure.
Doctors say the solution (解决办法) is learning how to deal with anger. They say the first
step is to admit that you are angry and to recognize the real cause of the anger, then decide if the cause is serious enough to get angry about. If it is, they say, “Do not express your anger while
angry. Wait until your anger has cooled down and you are able to express yourself calmly and reasonably.”
Doctors say that a good way to deal with anger is to find humor in the situation that has made you angry. They said that laughter is much healthier than anger.
56(“Damaging emotion” means that ______.
A(the emotion is harmless B(the emotion is harmful
C(the feeling is very strong D(the feeling is hard
57(What statement is right?
A(Were you angry, you would be cancered.
B(Once you are angry, you must be cancered
C(Angry as you are often, you can’t be cancered.
D(Anger may cause you a cancer.
58(Expressing anger violently ______ repressing it according to some scientists.
A(is just the same as B(is more harmful than
C(is no better than D(is much better than
59(According to the author, you’d better ______.
A(never be angry
B(cool down you anger before you express it

D(admit you are wrong when you are angry
“I have a regular film camera but I just don’t use it much,” said Ms Lowery, 23, a computer programmer. “When I got married last year, I had all these pictures that didn’t come out right. With digital cameras, you aren’t spending money on film for wasted pictures,” she said.
There are plenty of models from which to choose: from simple $ 200point-and-shoot snappers to $ 1,000 wonders with all the qualities that any advanced amateur ？业余爱好者，could
want. The wide selection is a sure sign that in many buyers’ minds, digital cameras have risen from mere gadgets to must-have items.
Digital cameras offer more than just the instant previewing of pictures on small color screens. They can store dozens, sometimes hundreds, of pictures that can be printed easily at home or sent by e-mail. Although there are extra costs-the cost of memory cards for storage and the special paper for printing—many buyers have been willing to make the switch.
Although about 90 percent of American households still use film cameras, digital cameras are capturing a growing share of the market. And the number of digital-camera households, now at about 10 percent, is certain to grow, as producers introduce more and more cameras whose quality is as good as film cameras. Soon, even professionals will use them.
Salesmen expect digital cameras to be popular gifts this holiday season. “They are very hot this year,” said Yossi Fogel at B& H Photo in New York. “The prices have come down and the
quality has gone up. Who wants to travel with 30 rolls of film ? With a large memory card to store pictures, you can shoot and shoot and never have to worry about changing a roll. How many times have you missed a picture because you failed to reload the film ?”
60(Which of the following is NOT an advantage of the digital camera over the film camera ?
A(The user has to spend additional money for it.
B(It comes in many models for the customer.
C(It saves money from unwanted pictures.
D(Its pictures can be sent by e-mail.
61(According to this passage, the American household using digital cameras will increase
A(their producers spend more money B(their operation becomes simpler
C(their salesmen are more friendly D(their quality keeps improving
62(Which of the following is NOT true about film cameras ?
A(Their pictures can be printed at a photo shop.
B(Their pictures can be enlarged as desired.
C(Their pictures can be seen before they are printed.
D(Their pictures can be stored for a long time.
Many teenagers feel that the most important people in their lives are their friends. They believe that their family members, especially their parents, don’t know them as well as their friends do. In large families, it is often for brothers and sisters to fight with each other and then they can only go to their friends for advice. It is very important for teenagers to have one good friend or many friends. Even when they are not with their friends, they usually spend a lot of time talking among themselves on the phone. This communication is very important in children’s growing up, because friends can discuss something difficult to say to their family members.
However, parents often try to choose friends for their children. Some parents may even stop their children from meeting their good friends. The question of “choice” is an interesting one. Have you ever thought of the following questions?
Who chooses your friends?
Do you choose your friends or your friends choose you?
Have you got a good friend your parents don’t like?
63. Many teenagers think their _________ know them better than their parents do.

Some people succeed, while others may not. This is because some people possess certain qualities, which others do not.
The first thing you must remember is that in order to succeed, you must be optimistic. If you do not expect to win, you will not try as hard as those who do expect to win. You also need to have a clear aim and a reason for doing something because motivation is a key to achieving success. If you do not have an aim, then you will not be motivated to work hard and put your performance under the microscope to make sure that every detail is right.
Another quality that helps people succeed is creativity---thinking about things in a different way and wondering how others would do the same thing. Think about some successful people you know. They might be successful with a little creativity, but the most successful people are the most creative ones.
Reading is another to success, as it will help you learn about how other people have achieved
success. If you want to learn how to set up a successful business, you should read books about people like Bill Gates and Jerry Yang, who have achieved amazing success in their areas of business.
Practicing is equally important if you want to success because practice makes perfect. Practise every day at whatever career you are in, and by doing so, you will see yourself, your business and your self-confidence begin to grow. If you feel confident about what you do, this confidence will make other people believe in you as well. Your colleagues will be happy to work with you, and your boss will give you more responsibility. Finally if you are a successful person, you will be able to look people in the eye and smile confidently.
Success is yours for the taking! Cheers!

Top Meal of the Day
A recent study shows that nearly 50 percent of the school kids in Jiangsu do not have breakfast. They tend to feel sleepy all day and unable to concentrate on the lessons, so it is hard for them to get high marks in all kinds of tests.
There are some reasons for this. To begin with, some students who study late into the night choose to ignore breakfast just to have a few extra minutes in bed. Others, whose parents are too busy to prepare breakfast for them, have to buy it on the way to school with the given money. In addition, a few schoolgirls want to stay slim and often go to school without breakfast.
In fact, the morning meal plays an important part. It can provide 30 percent of the whole day’s energy. For a creative mind and better judgment, school kids should start their day with a regular breakfast.
