It was a long week for Amanda at school. She stayed after school to work on a special project(课题) three days in a row. When she got home on Friday, she dropped into the chair with a sigh.
“What’s going on, Amanda?” her dad asked as he was reading the newspaper.
“I have to create a webpage for my technology class, and it is taking a lot more time than I thought it would,” Amanda answered.
Her dad looked over his newspaper and asked Amanda what the webpage was about.

Alexander von Humboldt was born in 1769 in Berlin, Germany. As a young boy, he wanted to learn about the world. Humboldt followed his dream. In 1799, he traveled with a friend to Central and South America.
On their trip, Humboldt and his friend saw and did many things. They sailed down the Amazon River. They watched dolphins play in the ocean. They explored the rain forest and climbed mountains and volcanoes. They were able to make the first maps of the northern part of South America.
Humboldt set a world record for mountain climbing. He also made a discovery. During his climb, Humboldt became very sick. He found out that the higher he climbed, the less oxygen there was in the air. This made it more difficult to breathe. Later, this became known as mountain sickness.
Science was another part of Humboldt’s interests. He wanted to write about all of the new things he saw. He described the new plants, animals, and rocks which had never been seen by scientists before. 
Humboldt also studied the way of life of the local people. He learned how the native people along the Amazon River used plants in their daily lives. For example, they used a strong poison from a vine(蔓生植物) to make poisoned arrows. The natives used these arrows for hunting their food.
The Amazon Indians also used a native plant to treat malaria (疟疾), a serious illness. The plant grew wild, but after it was dug up, it was never replanted. Humboldt warned the natives that the plant was in danger of dying out. He looked for ways to preserve the plant and to make it grow strong.
Although Humboldt took many risks during his trip, he lived to be 90 years old. In his lifetime, he made many discoveries and shared them with the world. As a tribute (颂扬) to Humboldt, there are rivers and mountains named after him.
28. We can infer that Humboldt was probably a (n)_______.
 A. explorer     	B. inventor    	C. doctor    		D. writer
29. Humboldt and his friend made maps of_______.
 A. the central part of South America  		B. the northern part of South America
 C. the north part of Central America  		D. the southern part of Central America
30. What do we know about mountain sickness?
 A. It can be treated with a plant.         	B. It is a serious illness like malaria.
 C. It mainly influences one’s breathing.   	D. It was discovered by Humboldt’s friend.
31. We can tell from the text that Humboldt was_______.
 A. easy-going    	B. imaginative    	C. optimistic    	D. ambitious

D
The Arctic will soon be free from ice, experts say. The change is bound to take place, but the global warming and climate change are changing the earth’s landscape (地形) rapidly,causing panic worldwide.
   Experts say that the Arctic sea ice is melting (融化) quite faster than expected and it can affect not just the region, but Earth in general. A scientist even says that next year, or maybe the year after that, the Arctic will be free of ice. 
    Peter Wadhams, a scientist, said that the melting trend led to his statement. “Most people expect this year will see a record low in the Arctic’s summer sea-ice cover. Next year or the year after that, I think it will be free of ice in summer and by that I mean the central Arctic will be ice-free,” Peter Wadhams, director of the Scott Polar Institute in Cambridge, said in an interview with the Guardian. “You will be able to cross over the North Pole by ship,” Peter Wadhams added. He strongly believes that although some pieces of ice will remain, the Arctic basin may be free of sea ice in the next two years starting in the summer of 2017.
Wadhams’ study says that melting sea ice will have a great influence on the planet since the sea ice is more capable of reflecting (反射) sunlight compared to water that can only reflect 10% of the sunlight. Once the sea ice melts, the water can only reflect a small amount of sunlight. This means that the Earth will receive and absorb more sunlight, making the planet even hotter. 
The year 2016 has already broken records of the hottest temperature ever recorded and the trend doesn’t seem to show any decrease in global warming. “It doesn’t look like the ice is healing and growing back,” Tom Wagner, NASA’s manager for cryosphere (冰冻圈) research said in a statement. 
Like Wadhams, scientists and researchers all over the world are lecturing around to educate people to help lighten global warming that has already changed the planet’s landscape.
32. What does the author think of global warming and climate change?
 A. Indifferent   	B. Anxious   	C. Unbelievable      D. Misunderstood
33. What can we learn from the second paragraph?
 A. What experts say has caused worldwide fear and great anxiety.
 B. The speed of the Arctic sea ice being melted is beyond expectation.
 C. The melting of the Arctic sea ice only has a great effect on this region.
 D. It’s impossible that the Arctic will be free from ice in one or two years. 
34. Why would the Earth become even hotter if the sea ice melted? Because_____.
 A. more water will cover the earth.     		B. there are more hours of daylight. 
 C. the water will reflect more sunlight.  		D. more heat would be taken in by the earth. 
35. What is the passage mainly about?
 A. According to some experts, the Arctic may be free from ice soon because of global warming and climate change.
 B. The Arctic melting sea ice will affect the planet greatly.
 C. The Arctic will be free from ice in two years.
 D. Global warming are changing the earth’s landscape quickly.

There is not anybody else quite like Stephen Wiltshire. Born in 1974, Stephen was always different.  36      In fact, he talked to nobody, showed no interest in school subjects and wasn’t able to sit still. Stephen was later told that he had autism(自闭症). He didn’t learn fully to talk until he was nine years old and he didn’t manage to pass his exams.   37   Art became his way to communicate.
    He started by drawing funny pictures of his teachers, but soon began to draw buildings. His eye for detail was perfect. He could see a building just once and remember everything about it.    38   Hours later, in front of TV cameras, he managed to draw this building, with the time on the station clock saying 11:20, the exact time when he was there. The television programme made him famous overnight in the UK.
     39   He has become a well-known artist, published four books of his drawings, taken helicopter(直升机) rides above the world’s great cities and drawn amazing pictures of them, and opened his own art gallery, where he now works, in London.
    His drawings are correct and true in every detail--he always manages to draw everything in the right place.   40     In 2006, he was given an MBE(Member of the Order British Empire) by the Queen of England for services to art.
 Floating Cities was his third book.
 As a child, he couldn’t make friends.
 Besides, they are also beautiful to look at.
 Luckily he found one thing he liked doing: drawing. 
 After that, many great things have happened to Stephen.
 In 1987, he saw a train station in London called St Pancras.
 On 15 February 2008, ABC News named him Person of the Week.

It’s never too late to admit that you are in the wrong. Being humans, we all need to know the art of   41  . Look back with   42   and think how often you’ve judged roughly, said unkind things, and pushed yourself ahead at the   43   of a friend.

After some   51  , the man confessed that, as executor (执行人) of his father’s will, he had been   52     his brother, who lived abroad, of his inheritance (继承权). Then and there the   53   old doctor made the man   54   to his brother asking for forgiveness and enclosing a cheque as the first step in restoring their good   55    . He then went with him to the mailbox in the corridor (走廊). As the letter disappeared, the man burst into   56  . “Thank you,” he said, “I think I’m   57  .” And he was.
A heartfelt apology can not only heal a damage relationship but also make it   58  . If you can think of someone who   59   an apology from you, someone you have wronged, or judged too roughly, or just neglected, do something about   60   right now.
