Several America students visited our school. Upon our arrival, we gave a warm welcome to them, among them a boy named Tim was to stay with my family for the weekend. I recognized Tim comparing him with photo he had sent to me. Tim greeted me and expressed that how exciting he felt. When school was over, we took the subway home. My parents prepared a rich family dinner that night but we enjoyed ourselves very much. The next day, I act as a guide, showing Tim along the most famous scenic spots in Chengdu. Wherever he went, he had some photos take to help him memorize this unforgettable trip.

It’s natural to greet friends with a smile and a wave. 1. But what happens if your face and body send mixed messages? Would someone be more likely to believe the look on your face or the way you hold your body?
Scientists have recently tackled these questions. They found that when a person is looking at your face, she might not believe what she sees if your body language doesn’t match the feeling that your face shows.
2. Previously, they had found that the tone of a person’s voice can be more important than the words that are spoken. For example, most people tend not to believe a person who says in a flat voice, “I’m so excited.”
When it came to emotions conveyed by facial expressions and body language, most scientists suspected that the face was more important. To test if this was true, psychologists showed people a number of pictures of isolated(孤立的)faces and isolated bodies (with faces blurred out(模糊的)) that showed anger or fear. 3.
An angry face had low eyebrows and tight lips. A scared face had high eyebrow and a slightly open mouth. 4. A scared body had arms forward and shoulders square, as if ready to defend.
These results told the researchers that mixed signals can confuse people. Even when people pay attention to the face, body language subtly(微妙地) influences which emotion they read.
5. If you want to be understood, it helps to avoid sending mixed messages.
A. Studying such mixed messages is nothing new for scientists.
B. So, your body language is important for telling people how you feel.
C. Scientists feel new to study the mixed message that confuses people.
D. An angry body had arms back and shoulders at an angle, as if ready to fight.
E. Body language can sometimes be misunderstood in different culture backgrounds.
F. When you do this, your face and body work together to show your friends that you’re happy to see them.
G. They also showed pictures in which angry or scared faces were paired with angry or scared bodies
It’s not just adults who have a thing or two to discuss with other people, babies too have their own social lives and enjoy group interaction, according to a world-first study.
The breakthrough study conducted by psychologist Professor Ben Bradley, at Charles Sturt University, could completely transform the way child-care centres are set up. In their study, the researchers examined groups of nine-month-old babies in New South Wales and Britain.
And they came across astounding(令人吃惊的) results. It was found that infants had “social brains” and focused not just on their mothers but on social life in groups as well.
“They communicate with more than one baby at once, and show jealousy and generousness,” said Professor Bradley.
He added, “They develop their own meanings through group interaction, they notice if a group member is behaving differently and they take on roles, such as leaders and followers.”
“A baby who has a depressed mother tends to be withdrawn ( 内 向 的 ), but put that same baby in a group of its peers (同龄人) and they behave and interact like any other baby.”
It was the first all-baby group study ever to be conducted. “Most studies of babies concentrate on the infant-mother relationship, assuming that is the single foundation for mental health, but babies are constantly involved with groups of people other than their mothers, fathers, siblings, grandparents and those taking care. Therefore, the mother-baby approach needs to be combined with a group approach,” said Bradley.
Phoebe Christison, a child-care worker at Camperdown Sunshine Bubs in Sydney’s inner west, said she often noticed what appeared to be emotional attachments developed between toddlers.
She said, “Joel （____） months ) and Isabella （____） months ) always like to hold hands when they sit in their high chairs and eat. And babies definitely show jealousy. They push and touch each other, and copy what the other is doing.”
1.Which of the following statements about the study is TRUE?
A. It’s the first study to look at all-baby groups.
B. It divides babies according to their personalities.
C. Its aim is to change the way of child care.
D. Its results are hard to believe.
2.A baby who has a depressed mother _____.
A. tends to be a follower B. also enjoys group interaction
C. has poor social ability D. pays more attention to its mother
3.What can be inferred from the result of this study?
A. There’s no need of child-care centers at all.
B. Babies are affected by groups more than by their mothers.
C. Adults should include babies when having social activities.
D. The normal infant-mother bond alone isn’t enough for the good mental health for babies.
4.The underlined word “toddlers” in Paragraph 8 can be replaced by “____”.
A. adults B. infants
C. peers D. groups
Let me tell you, Johnson, this is going to be the biggest development in animal-imitative cybernetics (动物模仿控制学) since Hayes pioneered the field way back in 2014. Everybody’s going to want a piece of my discovery! Everyone! Even United States of Earth Defense! I’m going to be the richest man alive!
I can see you don’t share my excitement yet. Just wait, old friend. Accompany me to my lab, and we will see who has the last laugh. You’ll be begging me to take you on as a lab assistant after I...Oh, here we are. You first, my good man. You see, I had already come up with the perfect cybernetic engine, able to copy any life form. The question was, which creature would be the best show of my discovery? I’ve used a life form nobody’s considered for cybernetics. It is powerful, graceful, intelligent, and best of all people love it. I chose the tiger!
Go on, have a glance! Ha! Don’t look so shocked, Johnson. I leave it powered down when I’m not testing it. It is rather great, though. Yes, all the latest technology, including claws ( 爪 ) I had made from vanadium alloy(合金). It cuts through steel like its wet cardboard. The process that I used to get its mind in the computer will be enough to ensure me fame and fortune.
Huh? It did move, didn’t it? I guess I left it on yesterday. No, don’t look so nervous; I can shut off its main power with this remote(遥控器)right here. Nothing to worry about. I really don’t think it’s regarding you as a meal. Be reasonable, old...Oh, God! Johnson! The remote, where is it? Where?!
Ah, there we go! Too late to save Johnson, though. What a pity. Better safe than sorry. There! God, what a mess. Even worse, I can’t call the police now; the bad publicity would overshadow my breakthrough, and certainly frighten the investors. I’ve got to get rid of the body secretly, somehow. I could bury it, but I might be seen. I could burn it, but the smoke would be very doubtful. What to do?
I wonder...How fast can this cat eat?

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real! Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.
May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough difficulties to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy.
Always put yourself in others’ shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too.
The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, for they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.
Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, and you can’t go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
Please send this message to those people who mean something to you, to those who have touched your life in one way or another, to those who make you smile when you really need it, to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down, to those who you want to let know that you appreciate their friendship. And if you don’t, don’t worry; nothing bad will happen to you. You will just miss out on the opportunity to brighten someone’s day with this message.

Flying a kite with my father is the most happiest memory in my childhood. I remember the day that I was running alongside my Father. He held the kite string, waiting the kite to catch the wind. He slowed, handed me the string, and teach me how to hold it. “Don’t let go! Keep going!” he shouted. I kept running, out of breaths. Over and over I tried but failed. She told me not to give up. Eventually, I ran too fast that I made the kite fly highly in the air. Filling with excitement, I watched a kite dancing in the sky.

I don’t believe Artificial Intelligence (AI) could replace my teaching career. I have always been interested in human connection, and the ways in which I can use these connections to inspire change and make a difference. 1., there are other ways where AI could make a more efficient and effective difference than I could on my own.
My teaching experiences over the past several years have been creative and inspiring. I believe that the job of educators extends beyond simply teaching students a set curriculum. 2., they must constantly reflect on ways to better their teaching, and they must inspire their students to be the best versions of themselves. And now with the help AI, they could achieve these goals much easier.
3.. First, AI can be used to promote fundamental skills, such as mathematical education and vocabulary lessons. Additionally, I see AI being used for such necessary tasks as answering questions and grading assignments. Thus I could focus my attention to establishing human connection, individualizing lesson plans and inspiring my students.
4.. I believe AI could provide a strong basis for educational equality around the world. According to Todd Leopold, close to 800 million people worldwide are functionally illiterate (不识字的). Due to its ability to efficiently pass knowledge across large groups of people fewer teachers may be needed in some schools. 5..
A. Since students will always need a human teacher
B. The benefit AI brings is far beyond my own classroom
C. I think AI is a powerful assistant to my future classroom
D. The need for students to learn how to use AI will also grow
E. Although human connection may never be able to be fully replaced by AI
F. This could be an opportunity for students everywhere to receive equal education
G. They must observe and get to know their students in order to individualize educational plans
Running late after several wrong turns, I made a final, desperate attempt to locate Elliott's home. Down a dirt path, past a group of geese, there it was: the two-acre property, on which Elliott grows nearly all the food she feeds her family. The Elliotts' three-bedrooms house was among a chicken cage, a pigpen, a rabbit hutch, and three gardens, the sum total of which Elliott refers to as her “homestead(农)”— a nod to the back-to-basics movement that inspired her lifestyle.
Elliott "homesteads" because modern technology “has rid people of their purpose”. In hopes of “drawing on and learning things of the past,” she has for eight years rejects an increasing number of modern conveniences. She lives a life like the 19th-century homesteaders. Unlike the pioneers, however, she enthusiastically broadcasts her life to an audience of Instagram followers, book buyers, and 100,000 monthly readers of her blog. Elliott belongs to a growing network of bloggers who have fueled the growing homesteading movement, which encourages self-reliance through the employment of traditional skills. Broadcasting on the net while trying to escape technology’s uncontrolled pace may seem incongruous, but Elliott insists that social media provide advice and moral support, which are lacking in the remote areas where many homesteaders settle.
Elliott’s day passes in a series of chores: weeding, cleaning up after the chickens, feeding the pigs, weeding again... She rejects the idea that success should involve anything more that maintaining a home. “We live in a culture where everything needs to be epic (宏大的) and awesome... Living a very average life? That’s seen as you not living up to your potential. And I really fight against that. I think the everyday is the point of our life,” she said. “It’s okay to be in the kitchen working with a baby on your back. That isn’t a step backward; it is an intentional thing”.
1.What do we know about Elliott’s “homestead”?
A. Noisy. B. Dirty. C. Difficult to find. D. Hard to maintain.
2.What influence does the Internet have on homesteading?
A. It reduces homesteaders’ everything.
B. It connects homesteading farms.
C. It helps promote homesteading.
D. It disturbs homesteader’s life.
3.What does the underlined word “incongruous” in paragraph 2 probably mean?
A. Strange B. Ambitious C. Natural D. Impossible
4.What will Elliott probably agree with?
A. Keep off the outside world B. Stay with your family
C. Wish for something epic D. Lead your own life
Good news for coffee and tea drinkers: No more wasting time and energy waiting for the perfect cup. Using patented Heatworks’ Ohmic Array Technology, the DUO Smart Untethered Carafe (玻璃水瓶) has the power to heat or cool water to the exact degree while you pour. With its functionality, convenience and stylish appearance, the DUO looks like quite the game changer.
So how does it work? The precise temperature control lets you pick the water temperature to the plus/minus one degree. Simply set your temperature, pour water into the tank(fits four cups) at the top and pour into your cup. The carafe features one blue spout(出水口) for filtered (过滤的) cold water and another red spout for hot water, which appears to heat up instantly.
The entire device is battery operated, making it perfect for taking it to the office or really anywhere else. Youwill also be able to plug it in, so the carafe can stay comfortably on your kitchen table or desk to charge for on -the -go use.
The DUO advocate 99 percent energy efficiently and an advanced water filtration system created by heat works CEO Jerry Callahan,who wanted to create a heating system without using metal heating elements. Unsustainable and imperfect metal heating parts have been used for heating for the past 100 years and carry the risk of rusting(生锈). Callahan felt It was time for an upgrade heating systems, and the Ohmic Array Technology was born. Using electrical currents passed through the water itself rather than separate heated elements to transfer heat into the water. Ohmic Array cuts out a whole step in the process.
The DUO is not yet available for purchase, but you can learn more Information and sign up for the release updates on the Heatworks website.

When the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris (巴黎圣母院) was on fire, it seemed as if the nation had lost a piece of its soul. A similar tragedy took place in 19th century Russia. And the rebuilding effort of the Russians might offer some inspiration for the French.
Standing in the heart of the Russian capital, with 60,000 square meters of floor space and 1,500 rooms, the Winter Palace was among the world’s grandest building. On Dec. 17, 1837, a fire broke out at the Winter Palace. By the morning of Dec.19, only the structure’s framework remained.
For the czar (沙皇) , the fire presented a political challenge. Fearing that Russia's enemies would cast the fire as a blow to the czarist orders, the czar’s supporters quickly worked together to shape the description of the fire in Russia and abroad. They wanted the country to appear united. And they certainly didn't want despair to become the story.
The first full account of the fire was written in French by the poet Petr Viazemskii. A Russian translation appeared two months later. That text and others painted a highly idealized picture of the response to the tragedy. The accounts noted that the czar forcefully directed the fire’s containment. Soldiers were selfless to save the palace. The Russian people felt the loss just as deeply as the czar.
To erase the shame of the fire, the czar set a nearly impossible goal: rebuild the palace within 15 months, and he ordered that rebuilt palace look exactly as it had before.Thousands of workers labored on the construction site. They made rapid progress. On Match 25, 1839, the czar celebrated the rebirth of the Winter Palace.
Outwardly identical to the old version, the new palace featured more iron and brick in its structures---and less wood. It was far less fire-prone than the original.
Notre Dame hasn’t experienced the same level of destruction as the Winter Palace, if the Russian phoenix of 1839 is any indication, there is hope that a renewed Notre Dame will once again grace the banks of the Seine.
1.What do we know about the fire in the Winter Palace?
A. It burnt down 60,000 rooms
B. It lasted more than 24 hours
C. It was set by Russia’s enemies
D. It completely destroyed the palace
2.Why did the czar decide to rebuild the palace in a short time?
A. To secure his power
B. To challenge his enemies
C. To unite French people
D. To celebrate his birthday
3.What did Viazemskii and others stress in their accounts?
A. The scene of the fire
B. The selflessness of the czar
C. The Russians’ joint effort to fight the fire
D. The ideal result achieved by the Russians.
4.What’s the author’s purpose in writing the passage?
A. To describe a fire at the Winter Palace
B. To praise the renewal of the Winter Palace
C. We express sympathy for the Notre Dame
D. To inspire confidence in rebuilding the Notre Dame.
Many of the most striking beasts on the planet come in only two colors: black and white. These high-contrast markings represent some of the nature's most diverse evolutionary choices. For some animals, black -and- white coloring is a way to warn off natural enemies. For others, to keep insects away. For still others, it creates a clever cover. Spend some time exploring what science has discovered about these animals’ appearances, and you will see that basic black and white isn't so basic after all.
Depending on the species, black skunks may wear white spots that act as a cover or white stripes(条纹)that signal enemies to watch out for their smelly spray.
Resent insights into panda coloring have come from studying each body part separately. Black ears indicate fierceness, and distinct eye patches aid in individual recognition. The panda in white body hides it against snow, white its dark limbs(四肢) keep it from being spotted in forests, a compromise developed from its poor bamboo diet:Bamboo doesn’t let pandas build up enough fat to hibernate(冬眠), forcing them to spend winters in the snow.
Even when a badger is in its cave, its facial stripes can be seen, Zoologists say the warning coloration helps the small animal prevent natural enemies.
In bright sun, the buck’s white stomach reduces the effect of the shadow cast by his back, allowing him to appear one color and two dimensional---especially hiding from natural enemies in his own shadown.
1.Which animals can use their color to warn off natural enemies?
A. Skunk and Badger B. Giant panda and Zebra

The new school year is around corner, so I need to buy something to my children and myself. Therefore, yesterday's afternoon I took them to a shoe store to buying some new shoes. My youngest kids wanted a pair of sports shoes and thus we bought one pair. My older son needed a pair of casual shoes for school. and we were found some on sale. The first pair which he tried on was a little small. so he put on other pair. and they fitted him perfectly. My daughter wanted beauty dress shoes and she got some high heels. I myself bought some boots because my old ones were wearing out.
