B Earlier this month, 6-year-old Isaac went on vacation to Fort Walton, Florida, with his family. While they were there, his mother Garrett learned about LuLu, a restaurant that offers food to customers with food allergies(过敏). At LuLu, Isaac could eat a salad and a bowl of chicken soup with rice. “Isaac looked at me as if asking, ‘Is this OK?’ ” Garrett said. Once his mom gave the OK, Isaac enjoyed for the first time the experience of eating at a restaurant. “That look on his face was like, ‘This is the coolest thing I’ve ever done,’ ” Garrett added. Garrett and her family rarely eat out because of Isaac’s food allergies. When they do, she cooks something for Isaac at home before they leave and brings it with her to the restaurant. “It’s not fun and it feels unfair,” she said. Their night at LuLu marked a celebration for Isaac. Garrett shared the moment on the restaurant’s Facebook page. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving Isaac this wonderful experience,” she wrote in her post. Barnett, the restaurant’s manager, said, “When customers tell the staff that someone in their group has a food allergy, I assist with the order by passing it to the kitchen, ensuring it’s cooked in a separate station and delivering the finished food to the guests. We have been improving this process over the past ten years since our allergy program was started.” On Garrett’s Facebook post, LuLu thanked Garrett for sharing her story. “Thank you for sharing your experience with us,” the restaurant wrote in a comment, “We are excited to see your son so happy!” Garrett is hoping her post’s popularity will convince other restaurants to be more considerate. “LuLu takes it seriously as we take it – nothing could make us happier than that,” she said. 24. How does Isaac feel when he first ate at LuLu? A. Satisfied. B. Curious. C. Amused. D. Nervous.

25. What does Garrett usually do when her family go out to eat? A. She leaves Isaac alone at home. B. She prepares some food for Isaac. C. She orders some special food for Isaac. D. She lets Isaac choose his favorite dishes. 26. What will Barnett do when guests with allergies come to dinner? A. He will deliver the menu to them. C. He will introduce the allergy program. B. He will personally assist with the order. D. He will cook dinner in a separate station. 27. What touched Garnett deeply? A. LuLu’s response to her post. B. Her son’s experience at LuLu. C. LuLu’s concern for guests with allergies. D. More restaurants’ following LuLu’s steps.
C Does your local high school have a student newspaper? Only 1 in 8 of New York’s public high schools has student newspapers – and many of those are published just a few times a year. A few more are online, which can leave out poorer schools. Rebecca Dwarka, an 18-year-old senior who works for her student paper said, “Facebook is the new way of finding out what happened. Nobody wants to actually sit down and read a whole article about it. This makes a ‘whole article’ sound a little like a long sentence in lonely places.” I am not nostalgic(怀旧的) about high school student newspapers and never worked for mine. I put out what was then called a personal magazine with a group of friends because we wanted to write about peace, war and rock ’n’ roll without school officials warning us not to make jokes about the local officials. School newspapers are in decline(衰落) because students now find out what happened on social networking websites. This is a little discouraging because it proves that for millions of Americans, journalism is becoming a do-it-yourself thing. Every citizen can be a reporter.

When something happens, we look for social media messages. Facebook posts and Tweets have become the means by which citizens and reporters can prove, deny, pass on stories and express opinions without the press’ challenging, researching or slowing the message. But truly good journalism is a craft, not just a blog post. It requires seeing something carefully and it uses an eye for details to help prove a larger view. And even journalism that conveys an opinion tries to be fair. If school newspapers begin to disappear, I hope there are other ways for students to learn that.
28. What can we infer from Rebecca’s words? A. Students like reading detailed articles. B. School newspapers are becoming unpopular. C. Facebook is the quickest way of spreading news. D. Long sentences are becoming popular in lonely places. 29. What does the author think of social media messages? A. They make journalism become a craft. B. They represent the power of small voices. C. They are usually discouraging for readers. D. They are coming without careful research. 30. What should good journalism do according to the author? A. Ignore some details. B. Spread a message quickly. C. Convey an opinion in a fair way. D. Act as blog posts in modern times. 31. Which might be the most suitable title for the passage? A. Social media or newspapers? B. Everyone can become a reporter at present C. Social networking brings about new journalism D. High school newspapers – an endangered species. D

Chinese retail giant Alibaba has developed a new automated( 自动化的 ) vehicle which is easy to mass-produce and could serve a number of functions. These could include delivery messenger or automated coffee selling machine, it said. The Cainiao G Plus can travel at up to nine miles per hour, reports The Verge news site. It was showed at a conference where Alibaba founder Jack Ma announced a 100bn yuan ($15.5bn) would be put into smart logistics(物流).This includes devices such as warehouse robots as well as delivery aids. AI expert and author Calum Chace described the G Plus as being like the “ugly big brother” of a delivery project developed by UK firm Starship Technologies. Starship has been working on this project for several years, so the Alibaba project looks to be behind as well as ugly, he said. “But that won’t matter. Anything to do with artificial intelligence is put in the first place for China, which has set itself the target of overtaking the US as world leader in AI by 2030”. China benefits from having free access to large amounts of data, essential for training algorithms( 算法 ), he added, probably a disadvantage in Europe since the introduction of GDPR law, designed to protect privacy. “Don’t bet against the Chinese pulling ahead in any AI-related competition, be it self-driving cars, facial recognition, or delivery projects,” Mr Chace said. The G Plus vehicle is fitted with solid state Lidar – the laser sensors which form an important part of the system autonomous vehicles use to be aware of their surroundings. Solid state Lidar is cheaper and easier to produce than the traditional system, which involves spinning multiple lasers in circles to help build up a 360-degree image of what surrounds the vehicle. There are various developers creating their own versions but essentially it uses fewer lasers and a tiny swinging mirror. Last month BMW said that its autonomous vehicles will be fitted with solid state Lidar when they will be launched in 2021.
32. What do we know about the delivery project developed by UK’s Starship Technologies?

Cuts. With small cuts, you need to be careful to keep the area of the wound clean to avoid getting infected. 37 If the cut has not stopped bleeding, raise
the wounded area above the heart and place pressure on the area to stop the bleeding. 38 It should be held in place with tape, but should not be too tight.
Blisters. Blisters can turn a fun walk in the woods into a terrible experience. 39
Change your bandage and socks and keep the blistered area clean. Make sure that you pack different size bandages and first aid cream. Sprains. If you have got a heavy pack on your shoulders, it can be very easy to twist your ankles. Walking sticks can be a traveler’s friend. 40 A good
ACE bandage should be packed in case of a sprained ankle. This can help fix the sprained area until you can get medical attention.
