Most dog owners feel that their dogs are their best friends. Almost everyone likes dogs because they try hard to please their owners. One of my favorite stories is about a dog who wanted his owner to please him.
  One of my friends has a large German shepherd ( 牧羊狗) named Jack. Every Sunday afternoon, my friend takes Jack for a walk in the park. Jack likes these long walks very much.
  One Sunday afternoon, a young man came to visit my friend. He stayed a long time, and he talked and talked. Soon it was time for my friend to take Jack for his walk, but the visitor didn’t leave. Jack became very worried about his walk in the park. He walked around the room several times and then sat down directly in front of the visitor and looked at him. But the visitor paid no attention. He continued talking. Finally, Jack couldn’t stand it any longer. He went out of the room and came back a few minutes later. He sat down again in front of the visitor, but this time he held the man’s hat in his mouth.
  German shepherds aren’t the only intelligent dogs. Another intelligent dog is a Seeing Eye dog. This is a special dog which helps blind people walk along the streets and do many other things. We call these dogs Seeing Eye dogs because they are the “eye” of the blind people and they help them to “see”. Seeing Eye dogs generally go to special schools for several years to learn to help blind people.

Last week, I took a sales class for female business owners. The 36thing the instructor did was ask if anyone had been the victim of a 37sales experience. Every person in the room 38her hand.
When she knew details, we learned that the 39situations had one thing in common. It 40that whenever a class member had a bad sales experience, it involved the 41promising something he wouldn’t or couldn’t deliver.
The example I 42with the class was a current one. I bought a summer membership at our community pool 43because it advertised a lovely baby pool to which I could escape with my active one and four year-olds. However, every time I’ve used the pool this summer, the baby area has been 44. Too much chlorine(氯气), 45one manager.
I’m sure the pool director was very apologetic that his 46had been inconvenienced, and that’s nice, but the 47is that I did not get what I paid for. When the baby pool was closed, I had to swim with my 48in the adult pool, which did not 49me the control I wanted and as such, was quite stressful. I would have rather stayed home.
The pool has 50a customer. I will not be buying a pass next summer.
In work and in life, it is really important not to 51something you can’t deliver, because at best, it will improve your 52. At worse, you could lose your job. 53, before you assure a co-worker or customer that you can get something done, make sure that your boss or someone higher-up isn’t going to step in and force you to 54your plan.

阅读理解。 Did you know that birds could be "property owners", too In spring, the male robin (知更鸟) looks for a
place to build a nest. A tree neara green lawn (草坪) that has many worms (虫子) suits him best. When he

nearby because swallows eat insects. They leave his worms alone. But other robins are different. They would
eat the worm supply he needs for his own family.
When another male robin comes near, the robin owner sings to wam him away. The property owner looks
cross and fierce (凶猛的). He raises his head feathers and holds his tail high. If the owner cannot frighten
away the new robin, he attacks. The two fight until one is the winner. The new bird often gives up and flies

There was a time when the owners of shops and businesses in Chicago had to pay large sums of money to gangsters(匪徒)in return for “protection”. If the money was not paid immediately, the gangsters would quickly put a man out of business by destroying his shop. Getting “protection money” is not a modern means. As long ago as the fourteenth century, an Englishman, Sir John Hawkwood, made the remarkable discovery that people would rather pay large sums of money than have their life work destroyed by gangsters.
Then Sir John Hawkwood arrived in Italy with a group of soldiers and settled near Florence. He soon made a name for himself and came to be known to the Italians as Giovanni Acuto. Whenever the Italian city-states were at war with each other, Hawkwood used to hire his soldiers to those who were willing to pay the high price he demanded. In times of peace, when business was bad, Hawkwood and his men would march into a city-state and, after burning down a few farms, would offer to go away if protection money was paid to them. Hawkwood made large sums of money with this method. In spite of this, the Italians regarded him as a sort of hero .When he died at eighty, the Florentines gave him a state funeral and had his picture painted, which was in memory of “this bravest man”.
小题1:What protection did Chicago gangsters give to those who paid them
A.They saved those people’s businesses from destruction.
B.They left those people’s business unharmed much.
C.They sent soldiers to serve them no matter what help they needed willingly.
D.They didn’t take those people’s lives
小题2:Sir John Hawkwook"s Italian name “Giovanni Acuto” was one which.
A.he gave himself in order to become better known to the Italians
B.he earned through his sharp practice of selling his ‘protection’
C.he needed so as to hire his soldiers to Italians
D.was given him in telling his services to the others’
小题3:The Italians regarded Hawkwood as a sort of hero.
A.because they couldn’t help admiring his bravery and boldness(胆大)
B.as he aided the citizens in peacetime when business was bad for them
C.he had played an important role in their daily life
D.for he lived so long and was given a state funeral by the Florentines
小题4:From the passage, we can guess the gangsters were those.
A.who were of great importance to the poor
B.who made the businessmen do whatever they were in need of
C.who were always ready to be sent abroad
D.who did harm to others
小题5:According to the writer, Hawkwood was.
A.a sort of national hero B.an experienced leader C.a brave soldier D.a noble gangster

iPhone owners are vainer (虚荣) and spend more on clothes and grooming(仪容) than those who have BlackBerrys and Android phones, new research claims.

BlackBerry owners earn the most and are more likely to have long-term relationships, while people with Android handsets are most creative and the best cooks.
The study, carried out by TalkTalk Mobile, surveyed 2,000 owners of the three major smartphone brands to determine whether the choice of handset was an extension(延伸) of their personality. The study rated users in various walks of life using a point scoring system including personalities, daily habits and the type of industries they work in.
Other results from the study found that people with an iPhone are more image conscious and generally rate themselves more attractive than those with other handsets. They are most likely to describe themselves as adventurous, bright and are most likely to work in media, publishing and education. They also believe their boss rates them highly. Apple owners also tend to have done more travelling and are the most active on social media sites.
BlackBerry owners were found to be the least punctual(准时的) ,but despite putting in the least hours at work they are the most active phone user—sending more texts and making more calls in the average day than any other phone user. They are more social and have more friends overall. They also earn nearly two and a half thousand pounds a year more than other smarphone owners, with an average salary of $27,406. BlackBerry users classed themselves so loud and mainly work in the health, finance or property sectors. They were also found to drink more tea and coffee each day than any other phone user.
Android owners were found to watch more TV than others and drink the most alcohol—consuming more in an average week than iPhone and BlackBerry drinkers. They have the most jobs in engineering, the government and public services and environmental services. They have the best manners and are more shy and relaxed than their counterparts.
Dan Meader, Director of Mobile at TalkTalk, said, “Many of us have our mobile phones on us almost constantly so they do become an extension of us in many ways. It’s interesting to see then how the choice in handset may reflect different aspects of personality and the results do show some unusual differences.”
小题1:What do we know about BlaceBerry users
A.They work latest. B.They drink most alcohol.
C.They are the highest earners. D.They are values most by their bosses.
小题2:The underlined words “image conscious”(Paragraph4) mean caring about.
A.income B.appearance C.social media D.interpersonal relationships
小题3:What were Android users found to be like
A.Loud. B.Brave. C.Polite. D.Confident.
小题4:Dan Meader may agree that the kind of mobile phone we use .
A.will decide the way we live our life
B.can be a window into the lives we lead
C.can change our personalities gradually
D.has become the most important part of our life
小题5:How is the text organized
A.By drawing comparisons. B.By giving reasons only.
C.By providing examples. D.By giving solutions.

It’s a common belief that over time, pet owners start to look like their animals, and vice versa. Now conies the terrifying news that cats look up to their owners as role models and copy their behavior.
Next time you reach for your fridge, think twice. If Kitty is watching, she is likely to overeat as well.
What is your cat’s IQ
In a new study from the University of Messina, it turns out that indoor cats who live closely to their owners “mirror” the lives of their caregivers. They sleep at the same time, eat at the same time, and can even become more or less social depending on the behavior of their owners.
“Cats are intelligent animals with a long memory, ”Jane Brunt, the executive director of the CATalyst Council, told Discovery News. “They watch and learn from us, noting the patterns of our actions. as evidenced by knowing where their food is kept and what time to expect to be fed, how to open the cupboard door that’s been improperly closed, and where their feeding and toileting areas fife. ”Because cats copy our habits, if you spend a lot of time raiding(搜刮)the fridge, your cat will return to its food bowl for that midnight snack, too. According to the study, this explains why “human and cat overweight rates often seem to match. ”So. if you felt guilty about leaving your precious kitty at home while you go to work, now you call feel even worse:You fife making your cat fat!
There’s no word if drinking green tea and making sure you go to Yoga will benefit your cat, but based on the study. it sounds like sticking to a healthy eating and sleeping schedule is best for both of you.
There’s a lot we can learn from our cats in return. “When they sit on our laps softly purring with rhythmic breathing and half-closed eyes. the sense of peace and calm that comes over us is like a private 1esson in inner meditation. ”Brant said. Sure. But cats don’t have to sit in rush hour traffic for an hour a day or worry about their in-laws. They’re probably pretty good at remaining calm.
So, according to science。even though we assumed that cats were not close to us all these years, it turns out they fife in fact learning from us and looking up to us. Scary, huh
小题1:According to the passage. which of the following is NOT true
A.Cats can copy humans’ schedule. B.Humans can learn from cats in some way.
C.Cats are smart and have fl long memory D.Green tea and Yoga can benefit cats.
小题2:What does the underlined word “this” in Paragraph 5 refer to
A.Humans’ keeping searching the fridge.
B.Cats’ going to their owners for food.
C.Cats’ copying humans’ habit of looking for food.
D.Humans’ leaving cats home while working.
小题3:What can we learn from our cats
A.To remain calm. B.To be able to copy. C.To stay proud. D.To look up to friends.
小题4:The best title for the passage could be ________.
A.Your Cat Can Bring You Pleasure B.You Are Copying Your Cat
C.You Can Make Your Cat Social D.Your Cat Is Copying Your Habit

Dog owners now have a little help understanding their furry friends.A new device(装置) called Bow-Lingual “translates” dog barks into English, Korean or Japanese.Bow-Lingual Japanese inventors spent much time and money analyzing dog barks.They found that dog noises can be broken down into six different emotions: happiness, sadness, frustration, anger, assertion and desire.

阅读理解。 Most dog owners feel that their dogs are their best friends. Almost everyone likes dogs because they try
hard to please their owners. One of my favorite stories is about a dog who wanted his owner to please him.
One of my friends has a large German shepherd (牧羊狗) named Jack. Every Sunday afternoon, my friend
takes Jack for a walk in the park. Jack likes these long walks very much.
One Sunday afternoon, a young man came to visit my friend. He stayed a long time, and he talked and

n"t stand it any longer.
He went out of the room and came back a few minutes later. He sat down again in front
of the visitor, but this time he held the man"s hat in his mouth.
German shepherds aren"t the only intelligent dogs. Another intelligent dog is a Seeing Eye dog. This is a
special dog which helps blind people walk along the streets and do many other things. We call these dogs

Sam, a dog, was left behind in Colorado while his owners, Mr. And Mrs. Green moved to Southern California. They did not give the dog up. They found him a very nice home before they moved. They would have let Sam accompany them, but they were afraid the dog’s presence would make it difficult for them to rent a house when they reached their destination.
The Green family lived in Colorado for less than a year. Before that, they had lived in the same neighborhood in California to which they returned. So Sam had been there before, but only for a short time when he was young.
Several months after the Greens left Colorado, after they were comfortably settled back in California, they heard a scratch at the door. They couldn’t imagine who might be there. It never occurred to them that it might be Sam, because they were sure he was happily set up with his new family back in Colorado. When they opened the door, the Greens saw a dirty, tired dog with very hurting feet. The animal looked a little bit like Sam, but no one could believe that Sam could have walked 840 miles on his own. The tired dog spent the night under the family car. The next day, when he was more rested, he performed some of his old tricks. The Greens knew they had their own dog back.
小题1:The story suggests that _______ .
A.dog owners have trouble renting B.many people treat their pets badly

Like lots of small-business owners, Lola Gonzalez had to decide to cut down her company’s nine-person staff (员工) when the economic recovery began to fail last spring. Unlike other companies, she picked an unlikely employee to lay off (解雇): herself.
Her business began to have problems in 2008 after going through her books (账簿)
One day, her husband, Marcos, told her she had to reduce her payroll(薪金总额)by one person. Gonzalez said at a meeting, “I want you all to know that I have to lay somebody off and it’s been a very difficult decision. And that person is me.” Employees first froze in amazement and then burst into laughter until they realized she was serious. Gonzalez ’s employees said they were grateful for her kindness.
Her reason was simple. Although she ran the business and her employees did the legwork (跑腿), she thought she could find work more easily than her staff. Sure enough, she soon got a job as a social worker for a non-profit organization called Devereux Kids. She enjoys her social-worker job now, but the salary (薪水) cut has required some lifestyle changes. She and Marcos no longer eat out daily; they no longer pay for their son’s car and mobile phone, and they changed their car to a smaller one to save $300 a month.
Her business has picked up a bit recently and Marcos has begun to work part-time at Gonzalez’s company. Gonzalez says she has no plan to return to work at her company until the economic situation becomes better, perhaps in a year. Her employees, however, will get Christmas bonuses (奖金) this year.
小题1:How many workers are there in Gonzalez’s company at present
A.8. B.9. C.10. D.11.
小题2:How did her employees feel at first when they heard Gonzalez’s decision
A.Happy. B.Grateful. C.Surprised. D.Unbelievable.
小题3:After leaving her company, _____________.
A.Gonzalez sold her car and went to work by bus
B.Gonzalez always had meals in a restaurant
C.Gonzalez’s son helped her a lot
D.Gonzalez changed her lifestyle a lot
小题4:From the text, we can learn that ___________.
A.Gonzalez will not return to her company in future
B.Gonzalez’s business has improved a little lately
C.Gonzalez got her social-worker job with great difficulty
D.Marcos lost his job and had to work at Gonzalez’s company

Cats’ sense of smell is very important to their health. Many cat owners have seen a cat smell the food and refuses it. Careful sniffing tells the cat if something is safe to eat.

Cats have a pair of vomeronasal organs(犁鼻器) on the roof of the mouth. When the cat wants to sniff, she will breathe the air in through her mouth. At this moment, she will often squint(斜视) her eyes and maybe even flatten(使…平坦) her ears. This makes her look like she is making faces. The vomeronasal organs will then analyze the smell---almost as if the cat is tasting the smell.
When you come home from outside the house, your cat can smell what you had for lunch and for a mid-afternoon snack. She can smell the people you shook hands with and your neighbour you stopped to talk to and hug. She can smell the grass brought under your shoes as you took a shortcut across the lawn. Your cat’s sense of smell is so good that she can smell difference between a gallon of water with a teaspoon of salt in it and plain water. In comparison, we think of salt as completely tasteless.
Cats have scent glands(臭腺) on each side of the forehead, on the chin, the lips and next to the tail. When your cat rubs up against your hand, your leg, the sofa, and your bed, she is leaving her scent in those things. She will then use her sense of smell to recognize “her” things, people and even other pets in the home.
If you want to have fun with your cat’s sense of smell, take some small bits of different things, such as a bit of chicken, some flowers and some fish. Place each different scent under a piece of paper towel(so your cat cannot see any of them) and encourage your cat to investigate and find what kind of food she likes to eat best.
小题1:Cats know whether the food is fit to eat or not with their____________.
A.sense of touch B.scent glands C.organs of smell D.sense of taste
小题2:The third paragraph was written mainly to prove that _____________.
A.cats are very smart
B.cats have a good sense as dogs
C.salty water has a special smell
D.cats’ sense of smell is excellent
小题3:What does your cat do when it rubs against your foot
A.She puts her scent on it.
B.She shows respect to you.
C.She asks you to play with her.
D.She smells where you were just now.
小题4:What does the word “investigate” mean in the last paragraph
A.Smell. B.See. C.Search. D.Send.
小题5:The passage mainly tells us _________________.
A.cats are one of our best friends
B.cats have sharp sense of smell
C.sense of smell is very important
D.cats know if something is safe to eat

More than 140 million workers have left their homes in the countryside to look for jobs in big cities all over China. They hope to be rich, but they realize they have many difficulties in making enough money.

cleaner, first of all. They keep themselves clean, and they do not make the house dirty. Cats are also quieter
than dogs. They usually do not make a lot of noise. Cats are safer, too. Dogs sometimes bite people, but cats
almost never do. Finally, cats are easier to take care of. You do not have to spend much time with a cat. In

Many children want to have a pet. Some parents may not like the idea of a dog or a cat in the house, but
