There was a wonder-filled little girl who was hurt so badly that when she entered adult life, she thought she was so bad that others just couldn’t be nice to her.

She was on a journey that she thought was to help her be “better”. She carried a big bag with her everywhere she went. Inside it were all the hurts she had experienced.

Vincent Willem van Gogh (30 March, 1853---29 July, 1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist
artist. He is considered one of the greatest artists with great influence on the greatest artists with
great influence on the 20th-century art.
Van Gogh spent his early adult life working for a firm of art dealers. After a brief period as a
teacher, he became a missionary (传教士) in a very poor mining region. He did not begin his career
as an artist until 1880; however, during the last ten years of his life, he produced more than 2,000
pieces, including around 900 paintings and 1,100 drawing and sketches (素描). He worked only with
somber colours until he met Impressionism and Neo-Impressionism in Paris. Van Gogh used their
bright colours and style of painting in a uniquely recognizable style. Most of his best-known works
were produced during his final two years, when he was suffering from serious mental illness.
In 1890, at the age of 37, van Gogh shot himself in the chest. He died two days later, with Theo,
his brother and his best friend, at his side, who reported his last words as “The sadness will last
forever”. It would not take long before his fame grew higher and higher.
Van Gogh’s mother threw away quite a number of his paintings. The only painting he sold
during his lifetime, The Red Vineyard, was created in 1888. It is now on display in the Pushkin
Museum in Moscow, Russia. Several paintings by van Gogh rank among the most expensive
paintings in the world. On March 30, 1987 van Gogh’s painting Irises was sold for a record of $53.9
million at Southby’s, New York. On May 15, 1990 his Portrait of Doctor Gachet was sold for $83.5
million at Christie’s, thus setting a new price record.

It takes years of school to develop math skills, but learning about numbers starts earlier than
you might think. Now according to a new study, at three months, babies have already started
acquiring a concept (概念) of “how much”.
Previous research had suggested that very young babies can tell when the number of objects (物
体) in a group has changed. But the babies in these studies were simply reacting generally to the fact
that something had changed, they suspected.
Researchers of Harvard University studied 36 babies, all three months old. During the tests,
each baby wore a hat with sensors (传感器). The babies watched a series of images on a computer
screen. They showed the same object, such as a cartoon character. For a while, the number of the
objects in the pictures didn’t change. Then the images began to display a different object, or a
different number of one of the objects the babies had previously looked at. As soon as something
changed, the babies’ brains responded with a specific pattern of electrical signals, which would be
recorded by sensors.
By analyzing these signals, the researchers discovered that one part of the brain (near the top on
the left side) responded when the object in the image changed. A different part of the brain (lower
and on the right side) responded when the number of objects in the image changed. This was not the
area of the brain that is involved in attention. That suggests that the babies’ brains are doing more
than just reacting to a change in what they’re seeing – they actually seem to be able to tell number
changes from other types of changes.
Numbers and amounts are important concepts in our lives. Even though babies are years away
from adding, subtracting (减), multiplying, and dividing, their brains seem to be preparing for a time
when they finally will.
66. Why were hats with sensors used in the study?
A. To record the images on the computer screen.
B. To remind babies of the changes of numbers.
C. To record the electrical activity of each baby’s brain.
D. To help babies concentrate on the computer screen.
67. What does the underlined word “They” in the third paragraph refer to?
A. Babies involved in the study.
B. Sensors worn by the babies.
C. Numbers marked on the objects.
D. Images shown on the computer screen.
68. Which part of the brain is responsible for responding to the changes of numbers?
A. The top.
B. The left side.
C. The lower and the right side.
D. The upper and the left side.
69. The last paragraph mainly implies that
A. babies are in fact cleverer than they are thought
B. it is impossible to understand human brain completely
C. numbers play the most important part in people’s lives
D. the ability of babies remain a mystery to scientists
70. The purpose of the study is to prove that
A. math skills should be developed as early as possible
B. numbers are easier for babies to judge than images
C. babies really do have some sense of numbers
D. babies can react differently to what they see
Health experts are calling for action to expand cancer care and control in the developing world.
A medical research paper says cancer was once thought of as a problem mostly in the developed
world. But now cancer is a leading cause of death and disability in poor countries as well. Experts
from Harvard University and other organizations urge the international community to fight cancer
aggressively, saying it should be fought in the way HIV/AIDS has been fought in Africa.
Cancer kills more than 7.5 million people a year worldwide. Almost two-thirds are in
low-income and middle-income countries.
They discover cancer dills more people in developing countries than AIDS, tuberculosis (肺结
核) and malaria (疟疾) combined. But the world spends only 5% of its cancer resources in those
Felicia Knaul from Harvard Medical School was one of the authors of the paper. She was in
Mexico when she was found to have breast cancer. She received treatment there and her experience
showed her the sharp difference between the rich and the poor in treating breast cancer.
Felicia Knaul says, “And we are seeing how this is attacking young women. It’s the number two
cause of death in Mexico for women thirty to fifty-four. All over the developing world, it’s the
number one cancer-related death among young women. I think we have to again say that there is
much more we could do about it than we are doing about it.”
Professor Knalul met community health workers during her work in developing countries. They
were an important part of efforts to reduce deaths from the cancer. They were able to persuade
people to get tested to prevent the illness. The experts say cancer care does not have to be costly. For
example, patients can be treated with lower-cost drugs.
71. What would be the best title for the passage?
A. Cancer – a leading cause of death in poor countries B. What should we do in preventing and treating cancer? C. What makes the first killer in developing countries? D. Experts urge more efforts to fight cancer in poor countries.
72. Felicia Knaul’s experience in Mexico shows that
A. many Mexican women suffer from breast cancer
B. there is not enough medicine for cancer there
C. many Mexican women can’t afford medical care
D. patients with breast cancer are treated differently
73. From what Felicia Knaul says, we can draw the conclusion that
A. breast cancer is a great threat to young women
B. people don’t pay enough attention to breast cancer
C. breast cancer is the second killer among women in Mexico
D. effective treatment for breast cancer is available in developing countries
74. Who plays an important part in preventing the cancer in developing countries?
A. The cancer patients.
B. The health experts.
C. Community health workers.
D. Young women.
75. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. The number of cancer cases is decreasing.
B. HIV/AIDS is not being taken seriously in Africa.
C. Over 7.5 million people die of cancer every year.
D. It is very expensive to treat cancer.
All people have dreams and they obey the rule that if you can dream it, you can achieve it!
Here are four goals for people to reach a perfect life in their future.
The first goal common to all of us in health and energy. We all want to be healthy and fit, to
have high levels of energy and to live free of pain and illness. Today, with the incredible advances in
medical science, the quality of our health and fitness, and our lifespan, is largely determined by
design, not by chance. People with excellent health habits are far healthier, have more energy, and
live longer and better than people who have poor health habits. Remember that health is not
everything, but without health everything is nothing!
The second goal that we all have in common is to enjoy excellent relationships – intimate,
personal or social – with the people we like and respect, and who
turn. Fully 85% of your happiness will be determined by the quality of your relationships at each
stage, and in each area, of your life. How well you get along with people, and how much they like
and respect you, have more impact on the quality of your life than perhaps any other factor.
The third common goal is to do work that we enjoy, to do it well, and to be well paid for it. You want to be able to get and keep the job you want, to get paid more and promoted (晋升) faster. You
want to earn the very most that is possible for you at each stage of your career, whatever you do.
The fourth goal we all have in common is to achieve financial independence. You want to reach
the point in life where you have enough money so that you never have any financial worries. You want to be completely free of them. You want to be able to order dinner in a restaurant without referring to the price listing to determine what you want to eat.

Dear fellow students, Our school advocates that we should build a low-carbon campus in order to protect the
earth. I think it is everyone’s duty to work hard to achieve this goal. Here is what I think we
should instead of riding in cars or school buses to reduce the amount of pollution. Secondly, when we eat the food in the school cafeteria, we should eat up what we buy and not waste the food. Thirdly, it is important for us to save electricity and water. We should not leave the lights on in the daytime and leave water running after washing. Instead, we should turn off lights as soon as we leave the classroom or dormitories.
In a word, if we can make small changes in our way of life, we can make a big difference to the earth!
Dear fellow students, let’s start right now and spare no effort to do every little thing we can from now on!
