I never wanted a dog,but now Im so glad I have one.
About two years ago,my wife,Cathy,got a little dog with a face only a mother could love.We named her Gertie.
Gertie is the kind of dog that has to grow on you.So I decided that the dog would be trained.This didnt quite go as planned.At 15 weeks old,she was nearly made to leave the Petsmart Training School.She spent every night lying in our bed—snoring so loudly that I hardly got a good nights sleep.
Then,about six months after she arrived,I felt that something in my heart was taking place,and I was unable to stop it.My behavior began to change.I began to smile at people when passing them in a street.I returned from neighbors.I started calling my kids and,to my surprise,they started calling me.I even tried to speak to my grandchildren over the phone once.I even was glad to listen to laughter from a 10monthold granddaughter.The point is that I was changing.
My wife and I both agree that it is Gertie who has changed my behavior.
Gertie is now nearly two years old and almost fully grown.I have come to like the pet little by little,though she is my wifes dog.

The African elephant,the largest land animal remaining on earth,is of great importance to African ecosystem(生態系統).Unlike other animals,the African elephant is to a great extent the builder of its environment.As a big planteater,it largely shapes the forestandsavanna(大草原) surroundings in which it lives,therefore setting the terms of existence for millions of other animals that live in its habitat(棲息地).
It is the elephants great desire for food that makes it a disturber of the environment and an important builder of its habitat.In its continuous search for the 300 pounds of plants it must have every day,it kills small trees and underbushes,and pulls branches off big trees.This results in numerous open spaces in both deep tropical forests and in the woodlands that cover part of the African savannas.In these open spaces are numerous plants in various stages of growth that attract a variety of other planteaters.
Take the rain forests for example.In their natural state,the spreading branches overhead shut out sunlight and prevent the growth of plants on the forest floor.By pulling down trees and eating plants,elephants make open spaces,allowing new plants to grow on the forest floor.In such situations,the forests become suitable for large hoofed planteaters to move around and for small planteaters to get their food as well.
What worries scientists now is that the African elephant has become an endangered species.If the elephant disappears,scientists say,many other animals will also disappear from vast areas of forest and savanna,greatly changing and worsening the whole ecosystem.

( )8.The passage is developed mainly by.
A.showing the effects and then explaining the causes
B.pointing out similarities and differences
C.describing the changes in space order
The food we eat seems to have profound effects on our health.Although science has made enormous steps in making food more fit to eat,it has,at the same time,made many foods unfit to eat.Some research has shown that perhaps eighty percent of all human illnesses are related to diet and forty percent of cancer is related to the diet as well,especially cancer of the colon.Different cultures are more likely to cause certain different illnesses because of the food that is characteristic in these cultures.That food is related to illness is not a new discovery.In 1945,about 35 years ago,government researchers realized that nitrates,commonly used to preserve color in meats,and other food additives,caused cancer.Yet,these carcinogenic additives remain in our food,and it becomes more difficult all the time to know which things on the packaging labels of processed food are helpful or harmful.The additives which we eat are not all so direct.Farmers often give penicillin to beef and living animals,and because of this,penicillin has been found in the milk of treated cow.Sometimes similar drugs are given to animals not for medical purposes,but for financial reasons.The farmers are simply trying to fatten the animals in order to obtain a higher price on the market.Although the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has tried repeatedly to control these procedures,the practices continue.
( )9.What is the best possible title of the passage?

D.Food may cause forty percent of cancer in world.
( )11.How has science done something harmful to mankind?
A.Because of science,diseases caused by polluted food have been virtually eliminated.
B.It has caused a lack of information concerning the value of food.
C.Because of the application of science,some potentially harmful substances have been added to food.
D.The scientists have preserved the color of meats,but not of vegetables.

A scientific panel convened by the World Health Organization recommended guidelines on Friday for doctors conducting clinical studies of SARS patients.The panel urged doctors to apply the guidelines in analyzing the masses of potentially useful information about various therapies that were collected in this years epidemic.Much of that information has not been published or analyzed.
“It is a matter of urgency to get better analysis and review.” said Dr.Simon Mardel,a WHO official who led the twoday meeting that ended on Friday.He said thousands of potential therapies and compounds had been tested so far as researchers try to determine treatments for SARS,or severe acute respiratory syndrome.“We recognize that having no treatment for SARS is hindering our ability to control an epidemic in so many ways.” He said.
In the epidemic earlier this year,various treatments,like drugs to fight the virus or strengthen the immune system,as well as traditional Chinese medicine,were delivered under emergency conditions,in widely different settings and countries to patients suffering from varying stages of the illness.Those conditions—generally without standardized measurements or controlled situations—have made it hard to interpret results.
Standard supportive therapy like nursing,and in severe cases the use of mechanical respirators(呼吸器)to help patients breathe,is the mainstay(主要支持)of SARS care,and helped many patients survive.But doctors still do not know how best to treat SARS patients who have breathing difficulties,Dr.Mardel said.One method is invasive ventilation.A second method involves blowing oxygen into the lungs through a mask.Both carry the risk of transmitting the virus to hospital employees.Without proper analysis,the panel was unable to say definitively which treatment worked best,or which caused the most harm.“There is a lack of shared information.” Dr.Mardel said,noting that a lot of data have not been published.
The panel also agreed on guidelines that would allow doctors to conduct quick and safe clinical trials,a process that generally takes years to complete.The World Health Organization,a United Nations agency did not release the guidelines.Dr.Mardel said they were flexible because no one knew where,when and in what setting SARS would return.Experts in many countries have already listed the treatments they want to test,and the health agency is leaving these decisions to individual nations.
( )14.Guidelines recommended by the scientific panel can be used for.
A.gathering potentially useful information about various therapies collected
B.conducting clinical studies of SARS patients
C.determining treatment for SARS
D.publishing all the information about SARS
( )15.According to the passage,it is difficult to interpret the results of certain treatments for SARS because.
A.patients were in different countries
B.patients were given medicines in widely different settings
C.patients were at different stages of the illness
D.these conditions had no standardized measurements or controlled situations
( )16.According to doctors,the two methods to treat SARS patients who have breathing difficulties both.
A.carry the risk of infecting hospital employees
B.are effective in curing patients who have breathing difficulties
C.dont run the risk of transmitting the virus to hospital employees
D.prove to work effectively and cause no harm
( )17.According to a WHO official,Dr.Mardel,the guidelines were flexible because.
A.SARS would reemerge in poor countries
B.no one knew where,when and in what setting SARS would return
C.SARS would not appear in developed countries
D.no one knew whether SARS would return or not
( )18.Which of the following can be the best title of the passage?
A.SARS,a Dreadful Disease
B.No Good Methods to Treat SARS
C.SARS Will Return One Day
D.Health Panel Recommends New Guidelines on SARS
Directions:Translate the following passages into Chinese.
Surely ambition is behind dreams of glory,of wealth,of distinction,of accomplishment,of pleasure,of goodness.What life does with our dreams and expectations cannot,of course,be predicted.Some dreams,begun in selflessness,end in rancor; other dreams,begun in selfishness,end in largeheartedness.The unpredictability of the outcome of dreams is no reason to cease dreaming.
So if you want people to get on board,help them open their windows and urge them to look at the world outside.Expose them to the same eyeopening information you have,and discuss it openly.If they dont have the skills to analyze and interpret the data,then provide them with coaching and education.You dont need to have a Ph.D.to intelligently appraise a competitive analysis or a market research study.Remember: people get on board when they look outward and see for themselves the reasons for change.
