Living and dealing with kids can be a tough job these days, but living and dealing with parents can be even tougher.
If I have learned anything in my 18 years, it is communication that is very important, both when you disagree and when you get along. With any relationship, you need to let others know how you are feeling. If you are not able to communicate, you drift apart. When you are mad at your parents, or anyone else, not talking to them doesn't solve anything.
Communication begins with the concerns of another. It means that you can't just come home from school, go up to your room and ignore everyone. Even if you just say "Hi", and see how their day was for five minutes, it is better than nothing.
If you looked up the word "communication" in a dictionary, it would say "the exchange of ideas, the conveyance of information, correspondence (通信), means of communication: a letter or a message". To maintain a good relationship, you must keep communication strong. Let people know how you feel, even if it's just by writing a note.
When dealing with parents, you always have to make them feel good about how they are doing as a parent. If you are trying to make them see something as you see it, tell them that you'll listen to what they have to say, but ask them politely to listen to you. Yelling or walking away only makes the situation worse.
This is an example: one night, Sophie went to a street party with her friends. She knew she had to be home by midnight after the fireworks, but she didn't feel she could just ask to go home. That would be rude. After all, they had been nice enough to take her along with them. Needless to say, she was late getting home. Her parents were mad at first, but when Sophie explained why she was late, they weren't as mad and let the incident go.
Communication is the key factor here. If Sophie's parents had not been willing to listen, Sophie would have been in a lot of trouble. Communication isn't a one-way deal: it goes both ways. Just remember: if you get into a situation like Sophie's, tell the other person how you feel -- listening is the key factor to communication.
24. What is the main idea of the second paragraph?
A. The disagreement between generations.
B. The importance of communication.
C. The great importance of keeping silent.
D. The necessity of making your feeling known.
25. When parents and children are in communication, the key to a happy relationship is that _____.
A. parents should listen to their children
B. children should always obey their parents
C. parents and children should not yell or ignore
D. equality plays a part in family communication
26. What does the example in this passage prove?
A. Sophie's parents did a good job in listening to her.
B. Children should first explain themselves to their parents.
C. Communication is the solution to misunderstanding.
D. Parents would be mad at their children's returning home late.
27. What can we learn from the passage?
A. Walk away instead of yelling if communication fails.
B. It is better to say "Hi" to others than say nothing.
C. Talking is more important than listening in communication.
D. You should feel good about yourself when communicating.
Mass communication has been growing and affecting the way communities and people behave. At every stage of the development of communication, from the telegraph to the Internet, societies have had to adapt to its effects. But have the effects been more positive or negative?
The saying “knowledge is power” has been an excellent motivator for people to improve their lives, but today the massive amount of information available through the Internet doesn't always seem to be helping people in the way we’d hoped. Rather than improving people’s lives and bringing us closer together, the information age is making us more divided and irresponsible.
Nevertheless, many people find comfort in their virtual (虚拟的) worlds and are happy to connect with real-life friends and online friends from the familiar surroundings of their living rooms. However, being able to reinvent themselves online and be whoever they want to be leads to the question of whether they are losing their identities by living in a virtual world. It's not all bad news, however. Mass communication has helped change some attitudes for the better. Take our views on the environment for example. Internet campaigns by governments and other organizations have helped popularize the ideas of recycling, protecting wildlife and reducing pollution.
Modern electronic communication now influences every aspect of our lives - it is a powerful tool that has raised some concerns for society. However, it has also brought countless benefits to society. At the end of the day, it can be used both for good or evil, which largely relies on the morals and sense of responsibility of the individual or community involved. In short, it needs to be used with care.
28. According to the text, the information age today _____.
A. helps people improve their lives
B. fully shows "Knowledge is power"
C. makes people feel more connected to others
D. fails to achieve our expectations sometimes
29. What can we infer from Paragraph 3?
A. People only connect with online friends.
B. Online friends can be comforting for all people.
C. Virtual lives can make people clear of who they are.
D. The Internet helps to raise our environmental awareness.
30. What is the writer's attitude to electronic communication in the last paragraph?
A. It should be used in a cautious way.
B. It does more harm than good to society.
C. Its side effects can't be handled by individuals.
D. It should be strictly controlled by the government.
31. What does the text mainly talk about?
A. The comfort of the virtual worlds.
B. The effects of mass communication.
C. The development of mass communication.
D. The way to use modern mass communication.
Do cell phones cause cancer? No one knows for sure. Mobile phones have only been widely used for around 20 years, with the very first ones introduced just over 30 years ago. It's too soon to tell just how harmful cell phones are.
In February 2011, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association recorded changes in brain glucose metabolism (葡萄糖代谢) during cell phone use. The study became the first to prove that cell phone use changes brain activity by monitoring 47 healthy volunteers seated and on the phone for 50 minutes. The volunteers’ brains were monitored by special scanners to measure glucose metabolism.
Then in May 2011, the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) added radiation from cell phones to its list of substances that possibly cause cancer in humans. The IARC's research found that most cell phone use did not lead to more risk of glioma, a dangerous type of brain cancer, or meningioma, a more common, but typically not harmful cancer. However, the study did find enough evidence that using cell phones for long periods of time on the same side of the head could mean an increased risk of glioma.
In a contrasting report released in July 2011, a British Institute of Cancer Research study found little evidence of cancer risk in 10 to 15 years of use. The study showed that there have been no increases in brain tumors (肿瘤) in several countries over the last 30 years since cell phones were introduced or even in the last 20 years since their use became more widespread.
With no long-term research available yet, limiting exposure to cell phone radiation by texting more and talking less is recommended. Stay off the phone when you have a weak signal, as it will need more radiation to contact the tower. Phone use for children should also be limited because their brains absorb twice as much cell phone radiation.
32. We can't be sure whether cell phones cause cancer because _______.
A. there has been little research on the problem up to now
B. it's difficult to track the bad effects of cell phone radiation
C. different studies has been arguing fiercely about this problem
D. there has been little evidence of it given the short history of cell phones
33. What did the IARC find from their research?
A. Radiation from the cell phone is certain to cause some brain cancers.
B. Using cell phone for long periods of time could increase the risk of cancer.
C. Cell phone use is more likely to cause a common cancer than a dangerous one.
D. Staying away from cell phones with weak signal can reduce the risk of cancer.
34. What is recommended to reduce the harm from cell phone use?
A. Staying far away from the signal tower.
B. Using cell phones when the signal is weak.
C. Limiting children's exposure to cell phones.
D. Talking more and texting less via cell phones.
35. What does “it” in Paragraph 5 refer to?
A. A cell phone.
B. The phone user.
C. The phone radiation.
D. The cell phone signal.
The daily life of a high school student is busy and often very stressful. 36 How can you deal with it? Here are some tips to help making your life a little smoother.
37 Instead of spending time aimlessly during study hall, actually study! You may not feel like it, but if it gives you more free time to watch your favorite show that night, it's worth it. During your commute to and from school, use the time to study or review class notes. Make it your daily goal to practice using time wisely.
Stay away from distractions. If you hate to miss your favorite show, make time to study before the show comes. Studying with the television on is much more difficult. 38 If the phone is a distraction, explain to friends that you can only talk at a certain time or turn it off.
Get plenty of rest. Take a second and see how many hours of sleep you get each night. Is it less than nine? If so, you need to be getting more sleep. A study found that most teens need about nine hours of sleep per night to feel alert. 39
Make time for you. Studying for two or three hours straight can wear you out, and in the end, you may be having a hard time concentrating. 40 A good suggestion is to spend every 45 minutes in studying and take a 15-minute rest. During the break, do something you find relaxing, such as eating a healthy snack or reading a magazine.
A. Kill time freely.
B. Watch those minutes.
C. You will have a harder time focusing on the learning material.
D. Another way is to listen to some light music when you are learning.
E. Many things and activities a student faces can be difficult and confusing.
F. Make sure to include short breaks while studying to keep your mind active.
G. By managing your time wisely, you will make room for more sleep in your schedule.

When I first met my new parrot, Chico, his wings had been cut short and he was stuck on the earth just like us humans. When the weather turned nice, I would take Chico outside. I 41 him on a branch of a tree, hoping to make him happier. At first he seemed confused. He walked back and forth on the branch looking 42 . He didn't even flap his wings in an/a 43 to fly. Somehow he knew he was incapable.
One day Chico got especially excited. He paced back and forth and made an 44 amount of noise. Then all of a sudden he stopped and let out an even louder scream. He started 45 flapping his wings for the first time ever--then he lifted off the 46 like a space shuttle! I was amazed and 47 .

If you make a career choice while you are still in high school, you will save time and money in the long run. Students who do not plan ahead may delay starting college or take extra courses 61 (give) themselves time to make up their 62 (mind). U.S. News and World Reports 63 (say) that the average annual tuition at a four-year college is $ 35,000. If you spend 64 extra year in school, you may have to take out additional loans or pay extra money to cover the cost.
Choosing a career while you are in high school also gives you time to explore your 65 (choose) industry. If you find a career 66 sounds interesting, you can follow someone in the field and see what it is 67 (real)like to have that job. You can also apply 68 a chance to get an informal position related to your desired industry. This will help you build a professional network even before you graduate from high school. Professional contacts are very 69 (value), especially when you are looking for a job in your field. If you do as much as you can to build a network 70 you are ready for a job, you will be more likely to succeed.
My mother always tells me to be kind to others. One day I was in line at our local post office. Behind me was a man, of who the coat was dirty and ragged. It was obviously that he has not bathed or changed his clothes for a long time. Hardly had he come in than the others stood back several foot away from him. In fact, I didn't notice her until the woman behind the counter looked back. It was then when I turned back to see what had been happened. Turned to leave, I said to him, “Wish you nice day!” The man nodded, looking happy.
