    Subject: Handheld Scanners
        Ms. Hu, I received the parcel from Scan Technology 1 piece. The scanner model they sent is correct, and the quantity is right. However, I've discovered the cables and connectors are all wrong. They are not suitable for the model 8021101.
        Can you do me a small favor and go through the product information website and see if the cables and connectors are still compatible (兼容的)with the 8021101 scanners? I have no wish to unpack the cables and connectors and try connecting them to the scanners. I believe we will have problem asking for an exchange if the cables and connectors are not compatible. If the website suggests an incompatibility, please contact Dan Richman and request an exchange for the collect model. (Refer to the invoice for his e-mail address.)
        I will only use the scanners for our project once we have resolved the exchange issue. We should not proceed unless we get confirmation (证实)on their compatibility. I am looking to resolve this in the shortest possible time as it would be disastrous to wait for this exchange without making progress on the project.
    Haojie

        I stand outside waving at the car pulling slowly out of our driveway. I force a smile, hoping it will cover up my tearing eyes, but I know it's not working. I run into the house, slam the door behind me, and begin crying. It's just occurred to me that I can't see my elder sister, Monsura, in the next four months.
        I ask myself why it is that I'm crying when I know she's doing something good for herself. I feel selfish for thinking about it but I'd be lying if I said I was happy for her choosing to study in a university in Boston. When my brother, Shafat, left for college, it was different. I still had one sibling at home to call me the stupidest person on a daily basis.
        I am reminded of the things we did together as kids. In our old two-bed-room apartment, our parents gave in to our constant begging and traded rooms with us for one night. It was like being part of the amusement park, using our parents' big bed as a trampoline (蹦床).It was during the first night that I witnessed a full moon. My sister and I believed my brother. He said that the moon was yellow because it was made from cheese. We made plans to visit the moon so we could melt a part of it and make cheese dip. But now I laugh at myself for being so innocent.
        Sitting in front of my computer, I listen to songs that remind me of my two best friends. I come to terms with the fact that there's no longer anyone here to laugh uncontrollably with me or to turn to at night when I have a nightmare.
        I'm shaken into reality by the sound of my cell phone ringing. Shafat is calling. I pick up and he immediately says “Thank you for such a great childhood.'' Those few words mean the world to me. We three-way call Monsura and spend the next hour reliving memory after memory, and by the end, I forget that I'm alone at home.
    (1)、Why does the writer feel very sad?
    A、She isn't admitted to a university. B、She has no one to accompany her at home. C、Monsura thinks she is stupid. D、Monsura and Shafat didn't go to the same college.
    (2)、The kids traded rooms with their parents because    .
    A、they hoped to sleep in one room B、they expected to see a fall moon C、they could play together on their parents' bed D、they wanted to make plans to visit the moon
    (3)、What is the turning point of the story?
    A、That the writer's brother left home for college. B、That the writer cried hard on the day when Monsura left. C、That the writer listened to songs that remind her of something. D、That the writer talked with her sister and brother on the phone,
    (4)、What might be the best title for the passage?
    A、My childhood B、A very sad day C、A hard-won family union D、The most precious family love

        Vitamin B could help reduce the effects of the dangerous type of air pollution, according to a new study published on Monday. In the first study of its kind, a team of international researchers looked into the damage caused by one of the pollutants that have the severest impact on health—PM2.5.
        They found that Vitamin B supplement could effectively reduce the impact of the tiny particles     (颗粒)on the human body, although they stressed that the research was in its early stages. According to the WHO, 92% of the world's people are living in places where the PM2.5 level goes beyond the recommended level. So it's urgent to find a solution to the problem.
        According to this study, published in the PNAS, 10 volunteers were initially exposed to clean air and given a placebo (安慰剂)to check their baseline responses. The group then kept on taking placebos tor tour weeks before being exposed to heavily polluted air from downtown Toronto, where an estimated 1,000 cars passed every hour. The bad air was delivered to the volunteers through an "oxygen type" face mask. The experiment was then repeated, with each volunteer taking a Vitamin B supplement daily, made up of 2.5mg of folic acid, 50mg of Vitamin B6, and l mg of Vitamin B12.
        Vitamin B6 can be found in liver, chicken, nuts and other things, and Vitamin B12 in fish, meat, eggs, milk and some cereals. The researchers found that four weeks of Vitamin B supplements — the damage of PM2.5 effects by 28-76%. The results emphasized how prevention at an individual level could be used to fight against the damage of PM2.5, the researchers said.
    (1)、What's the newly discovered effect of Vitamin B in Paragraph 1?
    A、It can be used to replace other vitamins in our daily life. B、It can help lower the air pollution level in the open air. C、It can reduce the impact of PM2.5 on human bodies. D、It can get rid of the pollutants remaining in our body.
    (2)、What can be learned from the second paragraph?
    A、Further study about the effect of Vitamin B needs to be done. B、Vitamin B is the most important to human's health. C、The tiny particles in the air are made up of PM2.5. D、92% of the world's people are affected by PM2.5.
    (3)、How did researchers draw the new conclusion about Vitamin B?
    A、By referring to a journal. B、By performing experiments. C、By interviewing scientists. D、By comparing vitamins.
    (4)、You may read the passage on a website about          .
    A、environment B、medicine C、education D、health

        What makes a person a giver or a taker? The idea of “give versus take” takes shape in all relationships of our lives. We're either giving advice, making time for people, or we're on the receiving end. We alternate between the two based on different situations we face on a daily basis, it not an hourly one.
        According to Adam Grant, a professor at Pennsylvania University, most people are matchers. They make careful observations on takers and make it a point for them to pay something back. They hate to see people who act so generously towards others without receiving any reward. Actually, most matchers will try to promote and support givers so that they can get the good they deserve.
        Another professor named Hannah Rile Bowles, from Harvard University, led a study on the idea. She asked 200 senior managers to sit down in pairs where one person would act as the boss and the other as an employee to negotiate salary promotions. Male employees asked for an average salary of $146 k while the females asked for only $141 k. But why did they not bargain as hard as the men? Simply because they were more likely to be givers.
        As a woman, I do enjoy the act of giving up my time, my knowledge and my care and attention to others. I don't expect anything in return, but I do tend to pull myself away when I feel like I'm being taken for granted. I also tend to get upset when I see a loved one's continuous actions of kindness go unnoticed. So it's safe to say I'm 50% giver,35% matcher and 15% taker.
        I do know someone, however, who is 99% giver. They're devoting their time, sharing valuable insights and going out of their way for everyone who crosses their path. Although they've changed the lives of many people, they rarely see any of it returned. But the universe is slowly repaying them; they're now extremely successful, well known for what they do.
    (1)、In Adam Grant's opinion, most people      .
    A、prefer giving to taking B、prefer taking to giving C、tend to depend on others D、tend to balance between giving and taking
    (2)、What does the underlined part in Paragraph 4 most probably mean?
    A、Cheer myself up. B、Give up on myself. C、Stay away deliberately. D、Force myself to move forward.
    (3)、What can be inferred from the last paragraph?
    A、No good deed goes undone. B、People who give are worth respecting. C、Giving is the shortest path to success. D、Sharing is the greatest human quality.

        The Cost of Dishonesty

        Imagine looking out of your window and seeing a whale swim by. That's the sight that surprises New York City residents recently. In the past years, humpback whales have been spotted in the two rivers surrounding the island of Manhattan, the Hudson River and the East River,
        Experts say that river cleanup efforts have improved water quality and led to an increase in the number of fish there. Fish are on the humpback's menu.The sighting is also an encouraging sign that conservation efforts are helping humpback whales come back. In 1973, the species was listed as the endangered. Now scientists say humpback whales are making a comeback.
        By the middle of the 20th century, hunting whales for profit had nearly wiped out many whale species. In 1973, the U.S. set up the Endangered Species Act. People were no longer allowed to hunt them in the U.S. waters. In 1982, the International Whaling is illegal worldwide. Last September, it was announced that nine groups of humpback whales are no longer endangered. Four groups are still endangered and a fifth is threatened.
         The number of them is growing particularly faster in the Southern Hemisphere like Tasman Sea and Coral Sea. And the number of humpback whales in Hawaii has made an amazing recovery. In 1966, there were fewer than 1,500 humpbacks there. Today there are about 10,000. But humpbacks in other parts of the world are still struggling.
        “We still have a lot of work to do,” says Angela Somma, head of NOAAS Fisheries' endangered species division. "But with the right protection, the number of humpback whales should continue to grow.
    A. These efforts to save whales are paying off.
    B. People are frightened when seeing whales in the river.
    C. Last year, one even swam past where the mayor lives.
    D. Today there are about 100,000 humpback whales worldwide.
    E. The extra food in the rivers is mainly what's attracting the whales.
    F. Scientists have carried out further research on the number of the whales.
    G. Scientists say that the focus needs to be on the whales that are still struggling.

        Life skill is one of the most important, (factor) to support students. Therefore, some people hold the idea  unpaid community work should be a compulsory part of high school programs to help students gain life skills and knowledge. And there are a lot of high schools (perform) some programs like that. (person), I think those programs are very good because they help students to get the opportunity  (see) and experience different aspects of life.
        Instead of watching TV or playing games on the computer at home, students will accumulate a lot of useful experience and knowledge  working in the community. Through some activities like that, students will become creative and active since they  (know) how to communicate and keep a good relationship with other people. Especially, in the future, some experiences from participating in community organizations will be very  (value) because it is a vital part in CV when students want to apply for a job.
        To sum up, it will be good idea for students to carry out unpaid community service in high schools. These programs will improve students' life skills and  (they) understanding of life.

        There are many ways you can show respect to others. In some cases, what you should do is listen patient when someone is speaking, even if you have anything important to say. Some other ways you can show respect includes the following ones. Take a care of borrowed things. When you borrow something but take good care of it, the person you borrowed it will surely appreciate it. Be polite, follow the rules, and practicing good manner. Clean up the mess you have made. If you don't clean up by yourself when you make a mess, someone else will have to. This can make people frustrating.
