I really love my job because I enjoy working with small children and like the challenges and awards from the job.
I also think my work is important.
There was a time when I thought I would never have that sort of career(职业).
I wasn't an excellent student because I didn't do much schoolwork.
In my final term I started thinking what I might do and found I didn't have much to offer.
I just accepted that I wasn' t the type to have a career.
I then found myself a Job, looking after two little girls.
It wasn't too bad at first.
But the problems began when I agreed to live in, so that I would be there if my boss had to go out for business in the evening.
We agreed that if I had to work extra hours one week, she'd give me time off the next.
But unfortunately, it didn't often work out.
I was getting extremely tired and fed up, because I had too many late nights and early mornings with the children.
One Sunday, I was in the park with the children, and met Megan who used to go to school with me.
I told her about my situation.
She suggested that I should do a course and get a qualification(资格证书) if I wanted to work with children.
I didn't think I would be accepted because I didn't take many exams in school. She persuaded me to phone the local college and they were really helpful.
My experience counted for a lot and I got on a part-time course.
I had to leave my job with the family, and got work helping out at a kindergarten.
Now I've got a full-time job there.
I shall always be thankful to Megan.
I wish I had known earlier that you could have a career, even if you aren't top of the class at school.

Good tool design is important in the prevention of overuse injuries.
Well-designed tools and equipment will require less force to operate them and prevent awkward(别扭的) hand positions.
They will allow the worker to keep the elbows(肘) next to the body to prevent damage to the shoulder and arm.
Overuse injuries can therefore be prevented or reduced if the employer provides, and workers use:
●power tools rather than having to use muscle(肌肉) power
●tools with specially designed handles that allow the wrist(手腕) to keep straight(See Figure 1).
This means that hands and wrists are kept in the same position as they would be if they were hanging relaxed at a person’s side
●tools with handles that can be held comfortably by the whole hand.
This means having a selection of sizes—remember that tools that provide a comfortable firm hold for a person with a very large hand may be awkward for someone with a very small hand.
This is a particularly important consideration for women who may use tools originally designed for men
●tools that do not press fingers(or flesh) between the handles, and whose handles do not have sharp edges or a small surface area.
60. What is the best title for the passage?
A.Good Tool Design for Women.
B.Importance of Good Tool Design.
C.Tool Design and Prevention of Injuries.
D.Overuse of Tools and Worker Protection.
61. Which of the following describes a well-designed tool?

62. What is Figure 1 used to show?
A.The effective use of the tool.
B.The way of operating the tool.
C.The proper design of the handle.
D.The purpose of bending the wrist.
63. In choosing tools for women. ___of the handle is the most important.
A.the size B.the edge C.the shape D. the position
How could we possibly think that keeping animals in cages in unnatural environments — mostly for entertainment purposes—is fair and respectful?
Zoo officials say they are concerned about animals.
However, most zoos remain "collections" of interesting "things" rather than protective habitats (栖息地).
Zoos teach people that it is acceptable to keep animals bored, lonely, and tar from their natural homes.
Zoos claim (声称) to educate people and save endangered species (物种), but visitors leave zoos without having learned anything meaningful about the animals' natural behavior, intelligence, or beauty.
Zoos keep animals in small spaces or cages, and most signs only mention the species' name, diet, and natural range (分布区).
The animals' normal behavior is seldom noticed because zoos don't usually take care of the animals' natural needs.
The animals are kept together in small spaces, with no privacy and little opportunity for mental and physical exercise.
This results in unusual and self-destructive behavior called zoochosis.
A worldwide study of zoos found that zoochosis is common among animals kept in small spaces or cages.
Another study showed that elephants spend 22 percent of their time making repeated head movements or biting cage bars, and bears spend 30 percent of their time walking back and forth, a sign of unhappiness and pain.
Furthermore, most animals in zoos are not endangered.
Captive breeding (圈养繁殖) of endangered big cats, Asian elephants, and other species has not resulted in their being sent back to the wild.
Zoos talk a lot about their captive breeding programs because they do not want people to worry about a species dying out.
In fact, baby animals also attract a lot of paying customers.
Haven't we seen enough competitions to name baby animals?
Actually, we will save endangered species only if we save their habitats and put an end to the reasons people kill them.
Instead of supporting zoos, we should support groups that work to protect animals' natural habitats.
64. How would the author describe the animals' life in zoos?
A.Dangerous. B.Unhappy. C.Natural. D.Easy.
65. In the state of zoochosis, animals___.
A.remain in cages
B.behave strangely
C.attack other animals
D.enjoy moving around
66. What does the author try to argue in the passage?
A.Zoos are not worth the public support.
B.Zoos fail in their attempt to save animals.
C.Zoos should treat animals as human beings.
D.Zoos use animals as a means of entertainment.
67. The author tries to persuade readers to accept his argument mainly by___.
A.pointing out the faults in what zoos do
B.using evidence he has collected at zoos.
C.questioning the way animals are protected
D.discussing the advantages of natural habitats
68. Although he argues against zoos, the author would still agree that ____.
A.zoos have to keep animals in small cages
B.most animals in zoos are endangered species
C.some endangered animals are reproduced in zoos
D. it's acceptable to keep animals away from their habitats
Language as a System of Symbols
Of all systems of symbols(符号), language is the most highly developed.
It has been pointed out that human beings, by agreement, can make anything stand for anything.
Human beings have agreed, in the course of centuries of mutual (相互的) dependency, to let the various noises that they can produce with their lungs, throats, tongues, teeth, and lips systematically stand for certain happenings in their nervous systems.
We call that system of agreements language.
There is no necessary connection between the symbol and that which it stands for.
Just as social positions can be symbolized by feathers worn on the head, by gold on the watch chain, or by a thousand other things according to the culture we live in, so the fact of being hungry can be symbolized by a thousand different noises according to the culture we live in.
However obvious these facts may appear at first glance, they are actually not so obvious as they seem except when we take special pains to think about the subject.
Symbols and the things they stand for are independent of each other, yet we all have a way of feeling as if, and sometimes acting as if, there were necessary connections.
For example, there are people who feel that foreign languages are unreasonable by nature: foreigners have such funny names for things, and why can't they call things by their right names?
This feeling exhibits itself most strongly in those English and American tourists who seem to believe that they can make the natives of any country understand English if they shout loud enough.
Like the little boy who is reported to have said:
"Pigs are called pigs because they are such dirty animals, "they feel that the symbol is inherently (内在地) connected in some way with the things symbolized.
69. Language is a highly developed system of symbols because human beings ____.
A.have made use of language for centuries
B.use our nervous systems to support language
C.have made various noises stand for any events
D.can make anything stand for anything by agreement
70. What can we conclude from Paragraph 2?
A.Different noises may mean different things.
B.Our culture determines what a symbol stands for.
C.The language we use symbolizes our social positions.
D.Our social positions determine the way we are dressed.
71. In Paragraph 3 ."take special pains "probably means"___".
A.try very hard
B.take our time
C.are very unhappy
D.feel especially painful
72. The example of the little boy is used to show that ____.
A.adults often learn from their young
B."pig" is a dirty word because pigs are dirty
C.words are not connected with the things they stand for
D.people sometimes have wrong ideas about how language works
①Bram-injured boy set for £ 1. 75m payout
A YOUNGSTER who was knocked off his tricycle by a taxi and left with a serious brain injury is set to be awarded $l. 75 million.
Fourteen-year-old George Currie, from Dalkeith, was living in County Durham with his parents Allister and Paula at the time of the accident in September 1993.
George, who was then three years old, was riding his small tricycle along the pavement when he lost control and swerved on to the road into the path of an on—coming taxi.
The driver's insurance company has now accepted responsibility for the accident and New Castle County Court is expected to rule on the payout on Monday.
TOP 10 Florida counties with the most accidents in 2004:
1. Monroe(98)
2. Palm Beach(65)
4. Broward(59)
5. Miami-Dade(54)
10. Collier(21)
②Boating accidents reduce
Lee and Collier counties tied al No, 10 for boating accidents in Florida in 2004, an improvement for both.
But because the counties remained in the top 10 among Florida’s 67 counties, safety continues to be a concern, officials said.
③Teens react to new law on driving permit
Lawmakers may hope to make teenage drivers drive more safely, but some local teens behind the wheel feel angry following the passing of Senate Bill 36 last week.
SB 36 is a law that limits times new teen drivers can drive and the number of passengers they can carry.
④Road accidents take costly toll
Traffic accidents kill more than one million people each year, injure tens of millions more and cost developing countries twice as much as they receive in international aid, the leader of research body said Wednesday.
The figures have led experts to form an international road safety network to choose the most important research areas, inform policy makers and help develop ways to prevent accidents, particularly in poor nations.

73. What does Passage①tell us about the boy?
A.He was injured in the head when he was 14.
B.He has waited for the payout for a long time.
C.He has lived in the same place since the accident.
D.He was run over by a taxi when riding on the pavement.
74. What can we learn about Lee and Collier counties from Passage②?
A.They both became safe places.
B.They won the same place in a race.
C.They had the same number of accidents.
D.They joined hands in reducing accidents.
75. Which passage would give more information on the prevention of road accidents?
A.① B.② C.③ D.④
