To have read Gulliver’s Travels is to have had the experience of listening to Jonathan Swift, of learning about man’s inhumanity (残酷) to man. To read Huckleberry Finn is to feel what it is like to drift (漂 流) down the Mississippi River on a raft (木排). To have read Byron is to have suffered his rebellions with him and to have enjoyed his nose—thumbing at (对??的蔑视) society. To have read Native Son is to know how it feels to be frustrated (受挫 折) in the particular way in which Blacks in Chicago are frustrated. This is effective communication (交流). It enables us to feel how others felt about life, even if they lived thousands of miles away and centuries age. It is not true that “We have only one life to live.” If we read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds
第 6 页共 12 页

B It is obvious that doctors recognize obesity as a health problem. So why is it so hard for them to talk to their patients about it? The results of two surveys, one of primary care physicians and the other of patients, found that while most doctors want to help patients lose weight and think it is their responsibility to do so, they often don’t know what to say. “So while doctors may tell patients they are overweight, the conversation often ends there,” said Christine C. Ferguson, director of the Stop Obesity Alliance. “Patients are not told about the possibility of diabetes (a kind of disease),” she said. “And doctors don’t feel they have good information to give. They felt that they didn’t have adequate tools to address this problem. The lack of dialogue hurts patients, too. The patient survey, of over 1,000 adults, found that most overweight patients don’t even know that they’re too heavy. Only 39 percent of overweight people surveyed had ever been told by a health care provider that they were overweight. Of those who were told they were obese, 90 percent were also told by their doctors to lose weight, the survey found. In fact most have tried to lose weight and may have been successful in the past—and many are still trying, the survey found. And many understand that losing even a small amount of weight can have a positive impact on their health and reduce their risk of obesity-related diseases like hypertension and diabetes.

Dr. William Bestermann Jr., medical director of Holston Medical Group, in Kingsport, Tenn. , which ranks the 10th in obesity among metropolitan areas in the United States, said the dialogue had to be an ongoing one and could not be dropped after just one mention of the problem. “If you’re to be successful with helping your patients lose weight, you have to talk to them at actually every visit about their progress, and find something to encourage them and coach them,” he said. He acknowledged that many doctors tend to be not optimistic. “Part of this is that there’s this common belief, and doctors are burdened by it, too, that overweight people are weak-willed and just don’t have any willpower and are self-indulgent and all that business,” he said. “If you think that way, you’ re not going to spend time having a productive conversation.” 1.What is the Stop Obesity Alliance most probably in Paragraph 3? A. An organization of doctors specializing in obesity. B. An organization of patients suffering from obesity. C. A research group that conducts special surveys about overweight people. D. A research group dealing with doctor-patient relationship. 2.How many of the patients surveyed have been advised by their doctors to lose weight? A. About 350.B. About 390. C. About 900. D. About 1,000. 3. What can be inferred about obesity patients in Paragraph 5? A. They are not as hopeless as doctors think they are. B. Most of them have tried hard to lose weight, but in vain. C. Without their doctors ’ constant coaching, there is little chance of their succeeding in losing weight. D. Most of them have just given up their hope of becoming less heavy. 4. According to the passage, which factor contributes to the lack of dialogue between doctors and patients? A. Most doctors just never think of warning their patients about their weight problem. B. Many doctors find it difficult to persuade overweight people to lose weight. C. Most patients are too weak-willed to do anything about their weight. D. Many patients tend not to trust their doctors about their weight problem. 5.Which of the following is the best title of the passage? A. Obesity in the U. S. B. Trouble of overweight Americans. A. Talk more, help better. D. Doctors or patients-who to bear more blame?

E In earliest times, men considered lightning to be one of the great mysteries (神秘的事物) of nature. Some ancient peoples believed that lightning and thunder were the weapons (武器) of the gods. In reality, lightning is a flow of electricity formed high above the earth. A single flash of lightning 1.6 kilometres long has enough electricity to light one million light bulbs (灯泡). The American scientist and statesman, Benjamin Franklin, was the first to show the connection between electricity and lightning in 1752. In the same year he also built the first lightning rod (避雷针). This device (装置物) protects buildings from being damaged by lightning. Modern science has discovered that one stroke (闪击) of lightning has a voltage (电压) of more than 15 million volts (伏特). A flash of lightning between a cloud and the earth may be as long as 13 kilometers, and travel at a speed of 30 million meters per second. Scientists judge that there are about 2,000 million flashes of lightning per year. Lightning hits the Empire State Building in New York City 30 to 48 times a year. In the United States alone it kills an average (平均数) of one person every day. The safest place to be in case of an electrical storm is in a closed car. Outside, one should go to low ground and not get under tress. Also, one should stay out of water and away from metal fences. Inside a house, people should avoid open doorways
