The BBC was founded in 1922, including radio and television services. It is based at Broadcasting House in London.
The BBC is controlled by some governors chosen by the government, but these people have freedom and the government can’t interfere(干扰). That is, the BBC is supposed not to be the mouthpiece(代言人)of the government. It has to be as fair as possible in giving radio and television time to, for example, political parties and religious groups.
There is a kind of interesting service in British-rental services. Many people prefer to rent their television sets instead of buying them.
The rent for a black and white set is about 80 pence a week . The rent of a color set is more than twice that of a black and white set. If the sets go wrong, people can have them repaired free of charge or replaced immediately.
Everyone has to buy a yearly license(许可证), since there is no advertising on BBC radio or television. It is from the sale of licenses that the BBC gets most of its money. A license for a black and white set costs 8 pounds, and for a colour set 18 pounds a year. There are four specialized radio channels, which broadcast different kinds of programmes. Radio I is mainly pop music.Radio 2 deals with light music, sports and other programmes. Radio 3 broadcasts serious music, talks on serious subjects etc.News broadcasts are mainly given by Radio 4.
There are special programmes for Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and certain parts of England.It also broadcasts programmes about Britain—in many different languages as well as in English to all parts of the world.

Dear Alcohol,
You've been around forever. I can remember all the pain you've caused for me.
Do you remember the night you almost took my father's life? I do. He loves you. Sometimes I think he loves you more than he loves me. He's addicted to you, to the way you promise to rid him of his problems only to cause more of them. You just sat back and laughed as his car went spinning through the street, crashing into two other cars. He wasn't the only one hurt by you that night.
Do you remember the night of my first high school party? You were there. My friends were intrigued by you. They treated you as if they were never going to see you again, drinking all of you that they could. I spent two hours that night helping my friends who had fallen completely. "I'm so embarrassed," they said as I held their hair back so that they could vomit . "I'm sorry," they said when I called taxies for them, walking them out and paying the driver in advance. "This won't happen again," they said as they were sent to the hospital to have their stomachs pumped. Two 15-year-old girls slept in hospital beds that night thanks to you.
Do you remember the night when you took advantage of my 17-year-old neighbor who had to drive to pick up his sister from her dance lessons? Do you know how we all felt when he hit another car and killed the two people in the other car? He died the next morning too. His sister walked home from her dance lesson, and passed police cars and a crowd of people gathering on the sidewalk just two blocks away from the dance studio. She didn't realize her brother was in the midst of it all. She never saw him again. And it's all your fault.
    I wish you'd walk out of my life forever. I don't want anything to do with you. Look at all the pain you've caused. Sure, you've made people happy too from time to time. But the damage you've caused in the lives of millions is inexcusable. Stop luring (引诱) in the people I love. Stop hurting me, please. 
Sincerely,
Anonymous

At first, muffled (听不太清的)conversations made researchers at a San Diego aquarium puzzled, but when a diver thought he was being told to get “out” of the water they realized the conversations were coming from a white whale.
Noc was about one year old when he was caught off the Pacific coast of Canada. He was kept in an open-ocean pen (围栏) at the US National Marine Mammal Foundation in San Diego, California. After seven years at the Foundation, he began, automatically, to make unusual sounds, a report in the latest issue of the journal, Current Biology, said.
“We thought of the whale’ s vocalizations(发出的声音) as an attempt to imitate humans. Whale vocalizations often sounded as if two people we’re talking just out of the range of our understanding,” the authors said. “ ‘These conversations’ were heard several times before we finally realized the whale was the source.” The researchers realized it was Noc when a diver surfaced and asked, “Who told me to get out?” It was then that they realized the word “out”, which was repeated several times, had come from Noc. Later, his speech-like sounds were recorded in the air and underwater.
Noc started making the sounds after seven years in the open-ocean pen, and continued making them for another four years. He died five years ago. Researchers have now analyzed the sound recordings. It was the first time that sound recordings had shown how such sounds imitated speech and were different from the usual calls of the species.
The speech-like sounds were lower than normal whale sounds and much closer to those of the human voice. Also, whales talk to each other by blowing air through their noses, rather than using a larynx(喉), as people do. We don’t claim that our whale was a good imitator compared to such well-known imitators as parrots,” the researchers said. “However, the behavior we observed is an example of vocal learning by the white whale. It seems that Noc’s close association with humans played a role in how often and how well he employed his human voice.”
28. What can we learn about Noc from the text?
A. He had lived in the Pacific Ocean before he was caught.
B. He was kept in a Canadian foundation until he died.
C. When he was seven, he started making speech-like sounds.
D. He was able to imitate humans before he was caught.
29. Noc’s sound was considered unusual because it was________.
   A. made by using a larynx
B. very similar to the human sound
C. different in the air and underwater
D. higher than the normal whale sound
30. According to Paragraph 3, which of the following statements is TRUE?
A. A diver realized the word “out”, which he had heard several times before, was from Noc. 
   B. The researchers heard the word, “out”, repeated once before they realized where it came form.
   C. The researchers realized it was Noc when a diver asked who had told him to get out of the water.
   D. Before they realized the word “out” came from Noc, the researchers had recorded the speech-like sounds.
31. In the researchers’ opinion, what contributed a great deal to Noc’s speech-like sounds?
A. Noc’s close association with humans.
B. Noc’s talent for imitation.
C. Whales’ special vocalizations.
D. The words being repeated several times.

D
Sometimes ideas do not appear when you are concentrating your attention and mysteriously appear when you are not. Modern science recognizes this as a result of incubating(酝酿) the problem in your subconscious(潜意识) , yet can't account for why it occurs.
When you quit thinking about a subject and decide to forget it, your subconscious mind doesn't quit working. Your thoughts keep making associations. This is why you've experienced suddenly remembering names, getting solutions to problems you've forgotten about, and ideas out of the blue when you are relaxing and not thinking about any particular thing.
You may try solving a problem with your subconscious mind by writing a letter to it. Now let go of the problem. Don't work on it. Forget it. Do something else. This is the incubation stage when much of what goes on occurs outside your focused awareness, in your unconscious. Open the letter in two days. The answer might magically pop into your mind.
An advertising agency was under pressure to come up with a marketing campaign. Bert ,the creative director, wrote the following letter which he addressed to his subconscious mind. Secret Expert,
 I need to come up with a new marketing program to introduce a new season of television shows. I'm interested in some kind of campaign that will capture the audience's attention more than one time. Is there something people need that we can advertise on? What kind of products, foods and services should we investigate? I need your idea about a fresh approach to advertising.
Thanks, Bert
    Bert mailed the letter to himself and when he read what he had written, he got his brainstorm, which was to advertise on "eggs". Somehow an association between "foods", "need" and "fresh approach" inspired the thought of using "fresh eggs to advertise." He arranged to put the ad for the television shows on eggs---some thirty million.
The consumers look at a single egg at least a few times, when they buy the eggs at the store, when they transfer them to the refrigerator, and when they crack them open. It's unlike any other ad medium in the world, because you're looking at it while you are using it.
32. You remember names though you are not thinking about them because your subconscious mind________.
   A. stops working            B. is still working
   C. is full of names           D. improves your memory
33. During the incubation stage, your focused awareness________.
   A. doesn't work             B. controls your thoughts
   C. waits for an answer        D. helps your unconscious
34. Which of the following was included in Bert's letter to his subconscious mind?
   A. What he wanted it to do.
   B. When he would need its help.
   C. What product could be advertised.
   D. How the solution could be found.
35. In what way did the ad put on eggs help?
A. It greatly increased the sales of eggs.
   B. It helped Bert to get a brainstorm.
   C. It made sure that consumers could get fresh eggs.
   D. It made the TV shows known to people repeatedly.

 What do the world’s most successful people all have in common?
By examining the work habits of over 150 greatest writers and artists and scientists, the researchers including Standford Professor Jeffrey found that high achievers like Robert Moses turn out to be all alike:Busy ! Busy!
     36      In a study of general managers in industry, John Kotter reported that many of them worked 60 to 65 hours per week—which translates into at least six 10-hour days. The ability and willingness to work difficult and tiring hours has characterized many powerful figures. Energy and strength provide many advantages to those seeking to build power.
Just Say No!
The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say “no” to almost everything. And that’s what gives them the time to accomplish so much.         
     37      And focus means saying “no” to a lot of distractions(分神). 
Know What You Are!
Ignore your weakness and keep improving your strengths. Don’t waste time exploring skill areas where you have little competence. Instead, focus on—and build on—your strengths.      38      .
Create Good Luck!
Luck is not magical—there is a science to it. Richard Wiseman studied lucky people for his book Luck Factor, and broke down what they do right.      39       By being more outgoing, open to new ideas, following the feeling that something is true, being optimistic, lucky people create possibilities.
Does applying these principles to your life actually work? Wiseman created a “luck school” to test the ideas—and it was a success. In total, 80 percent of people who attended Luck School said that their luck had increased.      40      .
A. Spend enough time to improve your weakness.
B. Achievement requires focus.
C. On average, these people reported that their luck had increased by more than 
   40 percent.
D. They never stop working and they never lose a minute.
E. Busy people are more likely to be lucky.
F. This means knowing who you are, what you are and what you are good at.
G. Certain personality types are luckier because they behave in a way that offer the chance for good opportunities.

W:James,I hear that you have a large collection of match boxes.Is that true?I can hardly find there are shops selling matches,you know.How do you get the boxes?
M:Right.We seldom use matches now but luckily my father has collected many when he was young and he gave me some as my birthday gift when I was 14.You know a good base is important and I never miss a chance of finding a match box even if it’s common and cheap.
W:How I envy you!I see that interest can make a person full of hopes and confidence.I liked collecting coins but I have given it up for years.

W:You are always reading English novels but you never go out to have a talk with the foreigners.Don’t you know the importance of oral English?
M:No.I think it’s no use learning spoken English.I can read all kinds of books with English but I seldom meet an English man.After all,I am not a guide.I am an engineer.
W:I am sorry I can’t agree with what you said.I think the final aim of learning a kind of language is to communicate with others.
M:I have grasped almost 5,000 words and phrases up to now but I have no time and chance to meet a foreigner. You know I learn English to improve my study,not to have a talk with others.

W:Hello!May I help you?
M:Yes,I hope so.I need some more cash for my visit in China.
W:You want to cash a traveler’s check here?
M:Right.I wanted to cash it at the hotel,but it’s said that banks always give better exchange rates.
W:Well,at a bank is a bit better than at a hotel because of the service charge.
M:I only think it’s more convenient for travelers living in a hotel.
W:Right.After all hotels aren’t really in the money exchange business.
M:You mean there’s really not much of a difference?
W:No,sir,not very much.
M:Well,may I cash these three checks for $100 each?I think that would be enough.
W:Yes.I’ll be happy to cash these for you.
M:What should I do then?
W:Would you please sign them here?
M:OK,here you are.It’s finished.
W:And will you please sign this foreign exchange request?
M:OK,a moment please.
W:I’ve written down your name and address for you,but I still need your passport number.
