On one of her trips to New York several years ago, Eudora Welty decided to take a couple of New York friends out to dinner. They settled in at a comfortable East Side cafe and within minutes, another customer was approaching their table.
“Hey, aren’t you from Mississippi?” the elegant, white-haired writer remembered being asked by the stranger. “I’m from Mississippi too.”
Without a second thought, the woman joined the Welty party. When her dinner partner showed up, she also pulled up a chair.
“They began telling me all the news of Mississippi,” Welty said. “I didn’t know what my New York friends were thinking.”
Taxis on a rainy New York night are rarer than sunshine. By the time the group got up to leave, it was pouring outside. Welty’s new friends immediately sent a waiter to find a cab. Heading back downtown toward her hotel, her big-city friends were amazed at the turn of events that had changed their Big Apple dinner into a Mississippi.
“My friends said: ‘Now we believe your stories,’” Welty added. “And I said: ‘Now you know. ’”
Sitting on a sofa in her room, Welty, a slim figure in a simple gray dress, looked pleased with this explanation.
“I don’t make them up,” she said of the characters in her fiction these last 50 or so years. “I don’t have to.”
Beauticians, bartenders, piano players and people with purple hats, Welty’s people come from afternoons spent visiting with old friends, from walks through the streets of her native Jackson, Miss., from conversations overheard on a bus. It annoys Welty that, at 78, her left ear has now given out. Sometimes, sitting on a bus or a train, she hears only a fragment(片段) of a particularly interesting story.

A. Two strangers joined her.
B. Her childhood friends came in.
C. A heavy rain ruined the dinner.
D. Some people held a party there.
6. The underlined word “them” in Paragraph 6 refers to Welty’.

7. What can we learn about the characters in Welty’s fiction?
A. They live in big cities.
B. They are mostly women.
C. They come from real life.
D. They are pleasure seekers.
If you are a fruit grower—or would like to become one—take advantage of Apple Day to see what’s around. It’s called Apple Day but in practice it’s more like Apple Month. The day itself is on
October 21, but since it has caught on, events now spread out over most of October around Britain.
Visiting an apple event is a good chance to see, and often taste, a wide variety of apples. To people who are used to the limited choice of apples such as Golden Delicious and Royal Gala in supermarkets, it can be quite an eye opener to see the range of classical apples still in existence, such as Decio which was grown by the Romans. Although it doesn’t taste of anything special, it’s still worth a try, as is the knobbly(多疙瘩的) Cat’s Head which is more of a curiosity than anything else.
There are also varieties developed to suit specific local conditions. One of the very best varieties for eating quality is Orleans Reinette, but you’ll need a warm, sheltered place with perfect soil to grow it, so it’At the events, you can meet expert growers and discuss which ones will best suit your conditions, and because these are family affairs, children are well catered for with apple-themed fun and games.
Apple Days are being held at all sorts of places with an interest in fruit, including stately gardens and commercial orchards(果园).If you want to have a real orchard experience, try visiting the National Fruit Collection at Brogdale, near Faversham in Kent.
8.What can people do at the apple events?
A. Attend experts’ lectures. B. Visit fruit-loving families.
C. Plant fruit trees in an orchard.D. Taste many kinds of apples.

C. It is rarely seen now.D. It has a special taste.
10. What does the underlined phrase “a pipe dream” in Paragraph 3mean?

Bad news sells. If it bleeds, it leads. No news is good news, and good news is no news. Those are the classic rules for the evening broadcasts and the morning papers. But now that information is being spread and monitored(监控) in different ways, researchers are discovering new rules. By tracking people’s e-mails and online posts, scientists have found that good news can spread faster and farther than disasters and sob stories.
“The ‘if it bleeds’ rule works for mass media,” says Jonah Berger, a scholar at the University of Pennsylvania. “They want your eyeballs and don’t care how you’re feeling. But when you share a story with your friends, you care a lot more how they react. You don’t want them to think of you as a Debbie Downer.”
Researchers analyzing word-of-mouth communication—e-mails, Web posts and reviews, face-to-face conversations—found that it tended to be more positive than negative(消极的), but that didn’t necessarily mean people preferred positive news. Was positive news shared more often simply because people experienced more good things than bad things? To test for that possibility, Dr. Berger looked at how people spread a particular set of news stories: thousands of articles on The New York Times’ website. He and a Penn colleague analyzed the “most e-mailed” list for six months. One of his first findings was that articles in the science section were much more likely to make the list than non-science articles. He found that science amazed Times’ readers and made them want to share this positive feeling with others.
Readers also tended to share articles that were exciting or funny, or that inspired negative feelings like anger or anxiety, but not articles that left them merely sad. They needed to be aroused(激发) one way or the other, and they preferred good news to bad. The more positive an article, the more likely it was to be shared, as Dr. Berger explains in his new book, “Contagious: Why Things Catch On.”
12 .What do the classic rules mentioned in the text apply to?
A. News reports. B. Research papers.
C .Private e-mails. D. Daily conversations．
13. What can we infer about people like Debbie Downer?
A. They’re socially inactive.
Before leaving work, Steve Lee likes to use his cell phone to turn on his heat and air conditioner system at home.So by the time he gets through traffic into his front door, the temperature inside is perfect.You may wonder what a so-called smart home can do inside.
Lee works for a company called Smart home.com, testing and living with many of his company's home automation gadgets(自动化小配件), like this multifunction touch screen that controls devices around the house and even connects to the Internet traffic cameras.
“I have cameras, and they follow all the way down the freeway to work, ”said Lee with pride, “What's going on at home when you are away? No problem, install some wireless cameras and controllers and from any computer in the world with an Internet connection, you can watch your house.”
“You can check on the house, and I can look at the temperature.Believe it or not, if I want to turn on lights ahead of time, I can, ”added Lee.

“If you do know the password and you want to play a trick on your wife, you could turn lights on and off remotely.”
This new technology, which can automatically turn on water sprinklers when humidity is low, or turn off a pool pump when it is not in use, is no longer expensive.Several hundred dollars for a basic system is enough and it is not hard to install.
Sure the convenience is nice but many people who like the security advantages like making sure kids are safe with the help of camera monitors and bedside alerts.
“I can notice that maybe one of my children wakes up in the middle of the night once the light switch is turned on.”

Since the first Earth Day in 1970，Americans have gotten a lot “greener” toward the environment.“We didn't know at that time that there even was an environment，let alone that there was a problem with it，” says Bruce Anderson，president of Earth Day USA.
But what began as nothing important in public affairs has grown into a social movement.Business people，political leaders，university professors，and especially millions of grass-roots Americans are taking part in the movement.“The understanding has increased many，many times，”says Gaylord Nelson，the former governor from Wisconsin，who thought up the first Earth Day.
According to US government reports，emissions(排放)from cars and trucks have dropped from 10.3 million tons a year to 5.5 million tons.The number of cities producing CO beyond the standard has been reduced from 40 to 9.Although serious problems still remain and need to be dealt with，the world is a safer and healthier place.A kind of “green thinking ” has become part of practices.
Great improvement has been achieved.In 1988 there were only 600 recycling programs；today in 1995 there are about 6，600.Advanced lights，motors，and building designs have helped save a lot of energy and therefore prevented pollution.
Twenty-five years ago，there were hardly any education programs for environment.Today，it's hard to find a public school，university，or law school that does not have such a kind of program.“Until we do that，nothing else will change！” says Bruce Anderson.

One of the latest trends(趋势) in American childcare is Chinese au pairs.Au Pair in Stamford，Conn，for example，has got increasing numbers of requests for Chinese au pairs from zero to around
4，000 since 2004.And that's true all across the country.
“I thought it would be very useful for him to learn Chinese at an early age，” Joseph Stocke，the managing director of a company，says of his 2-year-old son.“I would at least like to give him the chance to use the language in the future.” After only six months of being cared for by a 25-year-old woman from China，the boy can already understand basic Chinese daily expressions，his dad says.
Li Drake，a Chinese native raising two children in Minnesota with an American husband，had another reason for looking for an au pair from China：She didn't want her children to miss out on their roots.“Because I am Chinese，my husband and I wanted the children to keep exposed to(接触)the language and culture.” she says.
“Staying with a native speaker is better for children than simply sitting in a classroom，” says Suzanne Flynn，a professor in language education of Children.“But parents must understand that just one year with an au pair is unlikely to produce wonders.Complete mastery demands continued learning until the age of 10 or 12.”
The popularity of au pairs from China has been strengthened by the increasing numbers of American parents who want their children to learn Chinese.It is expected that American demand for au pairs will continue to rise in the next few years.
9．What does that term “au pair” in the text mean?

NEW YORK－Australian mining enterprise Clive Palmer on Tuesday unveiled(公布)blueprints for TitanicⅡ， a modern copy of the doomed ocean liner, although he didn't call the ship unsinkable any more.
The ship will largely recreate the design and decoration of the fabled original, with some modifications to keep it in line with current safety rules and shipbuilding practices, and the addition of some modern comforts such as air conditioning, Palmer said at a press conference in New York.
The three passenger classes, however, will be prevented from mingling(混杂), as in 1912, Palmer said.“I'm not too superstitious(迷信的)．”Palmer said when asked whether recreating a ship best-known for sinking was tempting fate.
White Star Line, the operator of the original ship, had said the Titanic was designed to be unsinkable.About 1, 500 people died on Titanic's maiden voyage in 1912 from Southampton to
New York after the ship collided with an iceberg in the North Atlantic.
Palmer, who created the company Blue Star Line last year, refused to make a similar boast. “Anything will sink if you put a hole in it, ” Palmer said.“I think it would be very cavalier to say it.”
Unlike the original, TitanicⅡwill have more than enough space in its lifeboats for every person on board and will have additional escape staircases.Markku Kanerva, sales director at Deltamarin, the Finnish company designing the ship, said it would be the “safest cruise ship in the world”．
Palmer refused to answer questions about the project's cost.Although the Titanic was the world's largest ship in her time, she would be smaller than many of today's modern cruise ships.
“It's not about the money，” Palmer said.“I've got enough money for it.I think that's all that matters.”
Forbes estimated Palmer's net worth to be $795 million in 2012.He describes himself as a billionaire.
TitanicⅡwill be built by Chinese state-owned CSC Jinling Shipyard, which has already built four ore carriers for Palmer's mining business, he said.The contract to build TitanicⅡhas not yet been signed, Palmer said.
12．What can be inferred about TitanicⅡfrom the passage?
A．TitanicⅡwill have more space in its lifeboats than the Titanic.
B．TitanicⅡwill be the largest cruise ship in the world.
C．TitanicⅡwill allow different classes of passengers to mingle.
D．TitanicⅡwill be a real unsinkable cruise ship.
13．Which of the following statements is TRUE according to the passage?
A．1，500 people died on Titanic's maiden voyage in 1912.
B．The Titanic collided with an iceberg in the South Pacific.
C．The Titanic was equipped with air conditioning.
D．The Titanic was the world's largest ship at that time.
14．What's the author's purpose of writing the passage?
A．To tell us the story of the Titanic.
B．To tell us TitanicⅡwill cost a lot of money.
C．To tell us about the future Titanic.
D．To tell us a Chinese Shipyard will build TitanicⅡ.
15．What's the best title of the passage?
A．The Old Titanic
B．The Blueprints of TitanicⅡ
C．The Unsinkable TitanicⅡ
D．Clive Palmer－A Billionaire
