There are over one million superstitions (迷信), and most people believe at least one or two of them.

Many people are superstitious about numbers. They think that there are lucky numbers and unlucky numbers.

The number 13 is often considered unlucky. In some parts of the world, buildings have no 13th floor and streets have no houses with the number 13. In Japan, "4" is considered unlucky because in Japanese the word "four" is pronounced the same as the word "death".

Japanese never give gifts of four knives, four napkins (餐巾), or four of anything.

What are the lucky numbers? Seven is a lucky number in many places, and "8" is considered a lucky number in Japan and China. In China, businesses often open on August 8, and many couples register to get married at eight past eight on August 8.

Superstitions about numbers are so widespread(普遍的) that some people—called numerologist—make a living by giving advice about numbers.

In 1937, when the Toyoda family of Japan wanted to form a car company, they asked a numerologist if "Toyoda" would be a good name for the company. The numerologist said it would not be. He explained that "Toyota" would be a better name for the company. The family took his advice. As a result, millions of people drive "Toyota" and not "Toyoda".

There are many other kinds of superstitions. There are superstitions about eating, sleeping, sneezing and itching (抓痒). There are superstitions about animals and holidays and horseshoes.

There are even superstitions about superstitions. Those superstitions will tell people how to reverse bad luck.

When the Japanese bump(碰撞) heads, they immediately bump heads again. According to a Japanese superstition, the first-bump means their parents will die, but the second bump "erases" the first bump.

To reverse bad luck in general, people turn around three times, turn their pockets inside out, or put their hats on backwards.

In the United States, baseball players sometimes wear their caps backwards when their team is losing. It looks silly, but the baseball players do not mind if it helps them win the game.

61. It can be inferred that superstitions about numbers are ________.

A. popular neither in Japan nor in China

B. popular only in Japan and in China

C. popular both in Japan and in China

D. causing great troubles both in Japan and in China

62. From this passage we can learn that __________.

A. a numerologist is an expert in maths

B. a numerologist is the owner of "Toyota"

C. a numerologist is a superman    

D. a numerologist is a fortune-teller

63. The underlined word "reverse" means __________.

A. change to bad luck             B. cause to go in the opposite direction

C. change for the worse           D. exchange

64. If a Japanese purposely bumps his head again after an accidental bump, we can be sure that _       .

A. he is mad   B. he is happy   C. he is superstitious       D. he is very sad

65. The writer wrote this passage with the purpose of ______.

A. persuading us to believe superstitions

B. showing us some facts of superstitions

C. showing us the magic power of number      

D. showing us a numerologist

C

I am a good mother to three children. I have tried never to let my profession stand in the way of being a good parent.

I no longer consider myself the center of the universe. I show up. I listen. I try to laugh. I am a good friend to my husband. I have tried to make marriage vows(誓约) mean what they say. I am a good friend to my friends, and they to me. Without them, there would be nothing to say to you today.

So here's what I wanted to tell you today: Get a life. A real life, not a desire of the next promotion(提升), the bigger paycheck, the larger house.

Get a life in which you are not alone. Find people you love, and who love you. And remember that love is not leisure(空闲), it is work. Pick up the phone. Send an e-mail. Write a letter. And realize that life is the best thing and that you have no business taking it for granted.

It is so easy to waste our lives, our days, our hours, and our minutes. It is so easy to exist instead of to live. I learned to live many years ago. Something really, really bad happened to me, something that changed my life in ways that, if I had my choice, it would never have been changed at all. And what I learned from it is what, today, seems to be the hardest lesson of all.

I learned to love the journey, not the destination. I learned to look at all the good in the world and try to give some of it back because I believed in it, completely and totally. And I tried to do that, in part, by telling others what I had learned. By telling them this: Read in the backyard with the sun on your face. Learn to be happy. And think of life as a deadly illness, because if you do, you will live it with joy and passion(热情) as it ought to be lived.

66. The best title of this passage probably is            ?

A. Love your friends                  B. Live a real life

C. Don't waste time                   D. Be a good mother and wife

67. How did the author form her view of life?

A. By working and social experience.     B. Learning from her friends.

C. Through an unfortunate experience.    D. Because of her children and husband.

68. The underlined sentence "It is so easy to exist instead of to live" in the fifth paragraph probably has the same meaning as              

A. it is so easy to keep alive but not to live a real life

B. it is very hard to live a real life

C. it is so easy to make a living

D. it is more difficult to exist than to live a happy life

69. What's the author's attitude toward work?

A. Do it well to serve others.

B. To earn enough money to make life better.

C. Try your best to get higher position and pay.

D. Don't let it affect your real life.

70. It can be inferred from the passage that           

A. the author is a success in personal life

B. the author didn't try her best to work well

C. the author spent all her time caring for her children

D. the author likes traveling very much

第六部分 任务型阅读(每小题1分,共10分)  

While being laid off and entering into retirement are far from the same, they both often leave one half of a couple with extra time on their hands, and plenty of pent-up(被压制的) energy that their significant other, coming home after a long day at work, can’t handle.

WSJ.com recently wrote an article that shared a few words of wisdom on how to deal with this situation. Here are a few of their tips:

1. Be nice to each other and have a positive attitude.

As hard as it may be, try to not be discouraged during the job search and make sure to support your spouse(配偶). If one of you says something negative, the other should try to come back with a positive. And don’t forget, compliments can go a long way.

2. Encourage your partner to take up a hobby, get a side job or join a club.
Typically, people work an average of forty hours a week, eight to nine hours a day. So is it any wonder that someone suddenly unemployed might go crazy with all that free time?

In order to squash the boredom before it begins, encourage your partner to stay as busy as possible. Stay healthy and join a sports team, or learn how to cook (this benefits your spouse as well).

Another option is taking up a side job serving food or working as a sales associate. This will allow your sweetie to interact with other people as well as earn some money. But, of course, new hobbies shouldn’t take up the time needed to continue the job hunt.

3. Encourage them to continue their existing friendships and to foster(培养) new ones.

As WSJ.com points out, those who recently lost their jobs are sometimes embarrassed and therefore shut out family and friends. They might cling(依靠)to their partners for support. Tell your wife or husband to talk to their families and friends. They know and love them, and can be a good support system (rather than a support group of one: you).

4. Give each other a little space before and after “couple time.”

You may be happy to spend time with your significant other but need a little alone time after working all day. To the recently laid off: let your partner settle down, drink a beer, and watch a little television before you bombard (发出连珠炮似的问题)him with your idea to go skydiving or white water rafting. You may have an endless amount of pent up energy, but they probably need some space to relax.

5. Trust each other.

When everything is going great, it’s easy to be happy and to trust your partner is doing everything he should. It’s not nearly as simple when half of your income is gone. Stand by each other as a couple and trust that each of you is doing everything necessary to get another job.

Online shopping is common in our daily life now. There are two kinds of opinion about it.

Some people think that online shopping has a lot of advantages. The most important one is its convenience. People dont have to waste their time and energy to go from one shop to another to buy commodities they like. This is especially useful to the busy people, the aged and the disable people who cannot go to shops in person. Besides, on the Internet there is enough information of all kinds of commodities, and people are able to buy things from distant place.

But other people object to the online shopping. They think that the real goods may be different from what the consumers have seen on the Net, thus the quality of commodities bought online may not be ensured. Whats worse, once cheated online, one may find it difficult to make a complain.

In my opinion, it is better for all to be careful when shopping online.
