I stood at the edge of the cliff. The wind stung my eyes， cutting into my skin. Dark-feathered birds circled the air， swooping low over the ocean every now and then to catch their dinner. Below me， hundreds of feet below， the deep ocean beat against the rough sandy shore. I took a deep breath， filling my lungs with anticipation and excitement — and at the same time， fear.
Behind me， I heard the rest of the crew start to whisper. I was here for the shooting of a movie as I was one of the leading actors in the film Dangerous Things， and this scene was right in the middle of the climax. It was vital that this went right.
The director had talked to me about getting a stunt double（替身），but I’d persuaded him that I could handle the dive. I’d taken a diving course a few years before， and I’d been taking swimming lessons since I was five years old， I had been pretty confident that I could do this — up till now.
Someone called out， “Keira， you don’t have to do this！ Are you sure you want to dive？” It was one of the producers， Callie Evans. I knew she meant well， but deep in my heart I knew I couldn’t turn back now. I couldn’t bear to see the disappointed look on the director’s face when he was told that I couldn’t do it.
At that moment， all my fears and worries broke free. The anticipation of adventure and triumph seemed to move all the hesitation. I swooped downwards. The air on either side of me cut into my extended arms. I knew that this wonderful feeling of flight would only last a few seconds， yet time seemed to slow down. I could hear the thrilled yell of my crew and a burst of applause that seemed to echo in my ears.
21. By saying “It was vital that this went right”， the writer meant “________”。
A. everything went well as planned
B. it was important to satisfy the crew
C. acting in the film was extremely pleasing
D. what he was going to do really mattered
22. The writer was confident in diving probably because he ________.
A. used to learn how to dive
B. was stronger than other people
C. took swimming lessons when he was young
D. didn’t want to be a stunt double at all
23. What happened while the writer was diving down？
A. His arms were badly injured.
B. Many birds circling the air happily.
C. The crew cheered loudly for him.
D. He lost consciousness all of a sudden.
Trip to Alaska National Parks
This four-day train trip， which traverses both Denali and Kenai Fjords National Parks， allows for true appreciation of Alaska’s natural beauty. The route takes in peaks and forests， including a stop at the foot of 20，320-foot-high Mount McKinley， North America’s tallest mountain. Though the train has comfortable seating and a luxurious dining car， nights are spent at off-train lodging like the Grande Denali Lodge and Hotel Alyeska in Girdwood.
India Tour， Maharajas’ Express

Started in 2010， and limited to 88 passengers on each trip， the train features luxurious private suites with marble baths and panoramic（全景）windows.

Tales of Laos Tour， Eastern & Oriental Express
The sister train to Europe’s Venice Simplon Orient-Express， the Eastern & Oriental Express offers the same level of service and comfort. What’s completely different about the Eastern， of course， is the scenery that passengers can see through the train’s large windows. Among the attractive sights on the four-day， three-night Tales of Laos Tour are green rice paddies（水稻梯田）and locals riding elephants.
Cuzco to Machu Picchu Route， Hiram Bingham

What does it mean to cry over a book？ “I’m a reader who did not weep，” Ruth Graham， a well-known critic， wrote. “Does this make me heartless？ Or does it make me a grown-up？”
Tears have played a surprisingly important part in the history of the novel. Readers have always asked about the role that emotion plays in reading： What does it mean to be deeply moved by a book？ Which books are worthy objects of our feelings？
In different times， people answered those questions in different ways. In the eighteenth century， when the novel was still a new form， crying was a sign of readers’ virtue. “Sentimental” novels， full of touching scenes， gave readers an occasion to exercise their “finer feelings.” Your tear proved your susceptibility（易感性）to the suffering of others.
At that time， sentimental novels were hugely popular， but also easy to attack. Tears， after all， had no necessary connection to actual virtue， and they could be fake. There could also be too many of them. As the critic John Mullan points out， by the end of the eighteenth century， the word “sentimental” had acquired a new meaning — “addicted to indulgence（沉溺）in superficial（肤浅的）emotion” — bringing it closer to the meaning that it has for us today.
In the nineteenth century， the meaning of tears evolved in two different directions. Some writers sought to waken “higher” feelings in their readers： Victorian sentimentalists wrote touching scenes in an effort to inspire social and political reform. However， the “sensation” novel， a different type of Victorian best-seller， showed that tears could be enjoyable in themselves. Sensation novels were the forerunners（先导）of the modern thriller and mystery. Heavy on secrets， and madness， they were known for creating physical “sensations” in their readers — trembling， a fast beating heart， and tears. But these were tears without moral purpose or effect.
Today’s debate about crying while reading looks back on all of this history. The debate， in fact， is about why books matter to us， and what reading is “for.” Talking about what makes us cry is a way of talking about ourselves.
28. What was people’s attitude towards crying over novels in the early 18th century？
29. According to the text， “sensation” novels _________.
A. were similar to the modern thriller and mystery
B. were the same as sentimental novels
C. aimed for social and political reform
D. tended to amuse the readers
30. The author presents this text mainly ________.
A. by providing examples
B. by making comparisons
C. by following the order of time
D. by following the order of importance
31. What’s the best title for the text？
A. Crying while reading through centuries
B. The history of the novel
C. Sentimental novels & sensation novels
D. Why books matter to us
You’ve probably heard about sports coaches， fitness coaches， voice and music teachers， career counselors， psychiatrists （精神病医师） and other specialists who teach skills and help us cope with daily life.
But there’s a rapidly growing kind of professional who does a little bit of everything. She or he is called a “life coach”。 People who are at crossroads in their lives， and corporations that want to give certain employees a career boost， are turning to them for help.
The idea that one person’s success story can change other people’s lives for the better goes back at least to the 1930s. Dale Carnegie’s famous self-improvement program “How to Win Friends and Influence People” came along soon thereafter.
But this new style of life coaches includes more than enthusiastic speakers or writers. They use their own experiences in business， sports， military service， or psychotherapy （心理疗法） to help others make critical life decisions.
They often give their approach a slogan， such as “energy coaching” or “fearless living” or “working yourself happy”。
Dave Lakhani in Boise， Idaho， for instance， works with salespeople to develop what he calls a “road map”。 He says an ongoing relationship with a coach is like having a personal fitness trainer for one’s career and life outside work.
Lakhani’s Bold Approach coaching firm also donates some of its time to help people who are anything but successful — including battered women and struggling single mothers.
But others in the so-called “helping professions” are not thrilled about the life-coaching movement. They say that anyone， trained or untrained， can call himself or herself a life coach， and that slick （华而不实的） promoters who mess with people’s lives can do more harm than good.
32. Which of the following is the best title for the passage？
A. Working Yourself Happy.
B. Life Coaches Help with Tough Decisions.
C. How to Cope with Daily Life with Life Coaches.
D. The Life-Coaching Movement.
A. The career counselor who teaches skills
B. The psychiatrist who helps us cope with daily life
C. The fitness coach who teaches us lessons
D. The specialist who helps us make important life decisions
34. The last paragraph is mainly about _______.
A. the introductions of life coach
B. the effects of life coach
C. the disagreements of life coach
D. the experiences of life coach
35. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage？
A. Life coaches avoid sharing their own experiences when helping others make life decisions.
B. A personal fitness trainer is more likely to help others make life decisions.
C. Dave Lakhani devotes his time to giving guidance to those struggling single mothers.
D. Maybe those people who are not thrilled about the life-coaching movement advise readers to be cautious about life coaches.
The world’s fastest runners come from Jamaica. In the past decade most of the sprint events have been dominated by male and female runners from the Caribbean island. Usain Bolt， Asafa Powell and Verona Campbell-Brown are among Jamaica’s world record holders and Olympic gold medalists.
36 In former times sprinters were poor people who came from the slums. When they saw they had talent they got scholarships at American colleges. They experienced world class training there but， nevertheless， did not feel at home. Today， Jamaica has the money to employ top coaches， so Jamaican sprinters stay at home. Here they are more relaxed and can perform better.
In Jamaica， children start running at a very early age. When they get to school， teachers and athletic coaches watch them run and walk. Then， depending on their talent they are sent to track and field clubs. 37 At school track meets crowds of teenagers get together to compete with each other. Running is very important in Jamaica and winning a national title or a school championship is something really big. 38
Another reason for Jamaica’s success on tracks around the world is food. A typical breakfast includes salt fish with yams， bananas and maybe a cup of tea. It contains carbohydrates which runners need to perform well.
39 They have long legs and little fat. Their narrow hips allow them to lift their knees higher when they run. Many scientists have been researching African and Caribbean runners in order to find out if they have a special gene that makes them faster than the others. 40
The success of Bolt， Powell and others has triggered hype（天花乱坠的广告宣传）among Jamaican children. These are their idols and they want to be just like them.
Liz sighed， “You have no good reason to make me 41 Sara’s party next Friday， Mom，” she
42 。 “You don’t even know her， and I think you’re very 43 。
“No， I don’t know her.” said Mom. “I don’t know her 44 ， either， and that’s 45 why I can’t let you go to the party. I’m not trying to 46 your fun. I’m just trying to 47 you from a possible bad influence.” She smiled at Liz， “Why don’t you invite Sara over for dinner 48 ？ Then I can get to know her better.”
Liz agreed to her mother’s 49 ， and a few days later， Sara came for dinner. As Mom cleared the table after the dinner， she 50 hearing the giggles and chatter of the two girls in the next room.
“Sara seems like a 51 girl，” said Mom after Sara had been taken home， “but I still need to meet her parents — or at least know more about them — before I can 52 you to spend the night there.”
As Mom spoke， the 53 came up the house， and Liz’s dog， GG — short for Good Girl — ran to the door. She barked and growled 54 。 “GG， be quiet！” 55 Liz. She turned to her mother. “Mom， what is wrong with GG？ She should know the mailman.” She asked.
“Because she has just had her 56 ， she wants to be sure they’re 57 ， so she doesn’t quite 58 anyone she doesn’t know really well.” Mom paused， then added， “I guess a lot of 59 are like that and fathers， too. So please be 60 with GG — and with me — as we mother our children. Okay？”
Liz looked at her mother in surprise， then slowly nodded.

Compared with traditional ones， self-organized tours are rapidly gaining a popularity among the youth.
During a self-organized tour， arrangements of sightseeing can be flexible and changeable depend on our own interests. Thus， we can spend the time free and head for our favorite destinations directly， only in which way are we fully expose ourselves to the local cultures and customs.
Besides， self-arranged tours can bring about great inconvenience in the arrangements of transportation and accommodation. At the same time， the discounts which a group of tourist can often enjoy in restaurants and hotels may not be available. Also， lack of safety makes easy to get hurt.
In my opinion， the advantages of a self-organized tour seems to outweigh its disadvantages. How a wise choice it is to go on a self-organized tour， that helps us enjoy ourselves to the fullest.

Last Friday， an experience changed me and my family’s life greatly.
After school， I was about to enter my apartment building when a little dirty dog， lying beside the dustbin， caught my eye. Immediately the homeless dog filled me with sympathy. So I bent down and held him in my arms. I rushed him upstairs and fed him some food. Then I gave him a bath. After the bath he looked energetic and refreshed.
