One afternoon in January in 1998, Susan Sharp, 43, and her 8-year-old son David, were walking across an icy square, when Susan's cane(手杖) slipped on the ice. Her face 36 first into the mud. David 37 her mother's side, “Are you all right, Mom” 38, Susan pulled herself up, “I'm okay, Honey,” she said.

“ 47 the sharp end would scratch(划破) floors,” Susan said.

Rising above the names
I was shopping in the supermarket when I heard a young voice．
“Mom, come here! There’s this lady here my size!”
The mother rushed to her son; then she turned to me to apologize．
I smiled and told her, “It’s okay．” Then talked to the boy, “Hi, I’m Darry Kramer．How are you?”
He studied me from head to toe, and asked, “Are you a little mommy?”
“Yes, I have a son,” I answered．
“Why are you so little?” he asked．
“It’s the way I was born,” I said．“Some people are little．Some are tall．I’m just not going to grow any bigger．” After I answered his other questions, I shook the boy’s hand and left．
My life as a little person is filled with stories like that．I enjoy talking to children and explaining why I look different from their parents．
It takes only one glance to see my uniqueness．I stand three feet nine inches tall．I was born an achondroplasia dwarf （侏儒）．Despite this, I did all the things other kids did when I was growing up．
I didn’t realize how short I was until I started school．Some kids picked on me, calling me names．Then I knew．I began to hate the first day of school each year．New students would always stare at me as I struggled to climb the school bus stairs．
But I learned to smile and accept the fact that I was going to be noticed my whole life．I decided to make my uniqueness an advantage rather than a disadvantage．What I lacked in height, I made up for in personality．
I’m 47 now, and the stares have not diminished as I’ve grown older．People are amazed when they see me driving．I try to keep a good attitude．When people are rude, I remind myself, “Look what else I have – a great family, nice friends．”
It’s the children’s questions that make my life special．I enjoy answering their questions．My hope is that I will encourage them to accept their peers （a person of the same age, class, position, etc．）, whatever size and shape they come in, and treat them with respect．

A．Because the boy ran into the author．

Stopping by Woods on A Snowy Evening
By Robert Frost
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow．
My little horse must think it queer(奇怪的)
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year．
He gives his harness(马笼头)bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake．
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake(鹅毛般雪花)．
The woods are lovely，dark and deep．
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep．

The conflict over what or how much homework should be comes partly from the fact that people can’t seem to agree on the purpose of homework.
What teachers think?
Some teachers think that homework is necessary to reinforce what is learned in school. And so they ask their students to memorize what was discussed in class through homework.
Some teachers think the point of homework is to cover material that the class didn’t have time to get to, so their homework is to let students learn additional things.
Other teachers like homework simply because they want students to form work habits and still others believe homework is necessary because it is the best way for parents to learn what their children do in school.
But many parents seem to have different ideas.
Elisa Cohen, who has twins at Lafayette Elementary School, doesn’t like the fact that third-grade students in DC elementary schools are asked to write about 25 book summaries a year. “They do the same thing over and over without really getting into alternate(交替的)ways of thinking about books and thinking about reading and writing. ”
Some education reformers(改革者), such as Howard Gardner, a Harvard University, professor well-known for his theory on multiple intelligence(智力), think that Cohen is on the right track. But it is often hard to persuade overworked teachers to give much thought to homework tasks.
68. How many opinions do the teachers have on “homework”?
A. 3 B. 4 C. 5 6.D
69. According to the experts’ opinions, ____.
A. teachers should give necessary work to the students
B. teachers should not work too hard or too long
C. teachers should let the students repeat what they didn’t have time to get in class
D. what Cohen’s thinking about is correct
70. What’s the problem with Elisa Cohen’s twins in writing about their book report?
A. They find homework really hard.
B. They simply copy one repeatedly.
C. They aren’t given much thinking about what they read.
D. They get different ways of thinking about their work.
71. We should improve our school education by ________.
A. increasing homework B. changing schools
C. changing teachers D. reducing homework
Perhaps the most famous theory, the study of body movement, was suggested by Professor Ray Birdwhistell. He believes that physical appearance is often culturally programmed. In other words, we learn our looks — we are not born with them.
A baby has generally informed face features. A baby, according to Birdwhistell, learns where to set the eyebrows by looking at those around — the family and friends. This helps explain why the people of some areas of the US look so much alike.
New Englanders or Southerners have certain common face features that cannot be explained by genetics (遗传学). The exact shape of the mouth is not set at birth. It is learned after. In fact, the final mouth shape is not formed until well after new teeth are set. For many people, this can be well into their childhood. A husband and wife who have lived together for a long time often come to look somewhat alike. We learn our looks from those around us.
This is perhaps why in a single country there are areas where people smile more than those in other areas. In the US, for example, the south is the part of the country where people smile most frequently. In New Zealand they smile less, and in the western part of New York people are considered unfriendly, partly because people in Madison Avenue smile less than people on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia. People in largely populated areas also smile and greet each other in public less than people in small towns do.
72. Ray Birdwhistell believes that physical appearance ________.
A. has little to do with the surroundings
B. has much to do with culture
C. is changing all the time
D. is almost the same in any part of a country
73. According to the passage, a person’s final mouth shape is formed ________.
A. as soon as his teeth are newly set
B. before he is born
C. some time after new teeth are set
D. when he is around 15 years old

Even in China today, most 16____________(ability) teenagers have to go to special schools to receive 17____________ education. I know people are trying to give them more help, comfort and care, 18____________ I don’t agree with such idea.
Those people’s life is difficult and frustrating, 19____________ we should give them a hand in their normal life. But despite their disability, they’re complete. They have their own thoughts and feelings. We can’t say disability will limit a person’s life. So it’s necessary for them to study 20____________(depend) and equally just as normal people. If they 21____________(ask) to go to the special school, they will probably treat themselves 22__________ special, unlucky people. That will make them 23___________ (lose) hope.
24____________ those people need most is confidence and dignity. Most of them hate 25____________ feeling that they always need others’ help. They just want to prove themselves as we do.

We all know that everyone becomes a little more forgetful as they get older, but men's minds decline more than women's, according to the results of a worldwide survey.
General differences seem to be inherent in male and female brains: Men are better at maintaining and dealing with mental images (useful in mathematical reasoning and spatial skills), while women tend to excel at(擅长于) recalling information from their brain's files. Many studies have looked for a connection between sex and the amount of mental decline (衰退) people experience as they age, but the results have been mixed.
Some studies found more age-related decline in men than in women, while others saw the opposite or even no relationship at all between sex and mental decline.
Those results could be improper because the studies involved older people, and women live longer than men: The men tested are the survivors, "so they're the ones that may not have shown such cognitive(认知的) decline," said study team leader Elizabeth of the University of Warwick in England.
Scientists surveyed completed four tasks that tested sex-related cognitive skills: matching an object to its rotated form, matching lines shown from the same angle, typing as many words in a particular category (范畴) as possible in the given time, e.g. "object usually colored gray", and recalling the location of objects in a line drawing. The first two were tasks at which men are usually good; the latter are typically dominated by women. Within each age group studied, men and women performed better in their separate categories on average. And though performance declined with age for both genders, women showed obviously less decline than men overall.
26．The underlined word in the second paragraph means________.
A．natural B．great C．obvious D．absolute
27．According to the passage, which of the following can Not be typed into the same category?
A．cloud B．sheep C．trees D．goose
28．Which of the following statements is true according the article?
A．Men do better than women when it comes to learning English.
B．Women stand out at remembering people’s names.
C．Women do well in dealing mathematic problems.
D．Men excel at typing as many words as possible in the given time.
29．One important factor that affects the correctness of the results is that ________.
A．women live longer than men B．people surveyed are all old
C．the old men tested may not have shown such cognitive decline
D．people taking part in this test came from all over the world
30．The author aims to tell us that _________.
A．women’s minds perform better than men’s
B．men’s minds decline more with age
C．everyone becomes a little more forgetful as they get older
D．a survey on human’s mind decline was done recently
Most young people enjoy some form of physical activity. It may be walking, cycling, or swimming, or in winter, skating or skiing. It may be a game of some form ---- football, basketball, hockey, golf or tennis. It may be mountaineering.
Those who have a passion for climbing high and difficult mountains are often looked upon with astonishment. Why are men and women willing to suffer cold and hardship, and to take risks in high mountains? This astonishment is caused, probably, by the difference between mountaineering and other forms of activity to which men give their leisure.
Mountaineering is a sport and not a game. There are no man-made rules, as others, as there are for such games as golf and football. There are, of course, rules of different kind which it would be dangerous to ignore, but it is this freedom from man-made rules that makes mountaineering attractive to many people. Those who climb mountains are free to use their own methods.
If we compare mountaineering and other more familiar sports, we might think that one big difference is that mountaineering is not a “team game”. We should be mistaken in this. There are, it is true, no “matches” between “teams” of climbers, but when climbers are on a rock face linked by a rope on which their lives may depend, there is obviously teamwork.
The mountain climber knows that he may have to fight forces that are stronger and more powerful than man. He has to fight the forces of nature. His sport requires high mental and physical qualities.
A mountain climber continues to improve in skill year after year. A skier is probably past his best by the age of thirty. But it is not unusual for men of fifty or sixty to climb the highest mountains in the Alps. They may take more time than younger men, but they perhaps climb with more skill and less waste of effort, and they certainly experience equal enjoyment.
31. What movements are popular among people in winter in the passage?
A. Soccer and golf. B. Skiing and skating.
C. Cycling and hockey. D. Mountaineering.
32. The underlined word “passion”(Para. 2) could best be replaced by ________.
A. strong emotion B. depressionC. feeling D. astonishment
33. Mountaineering is a sport, not a game because ________.
A. it has man-made rules
B. it is too dangerous for climbers
C. it can’t bring people joy and leisure
D. it is free for climbers to use their own methods
34. A mountain climber must be strong both mentally and physically because _______.
A. there are no regular man-made rules for him to follow
B. there is no teamwork and he has to depend on himself
C. his component is not one or several people but the powerful nature
D. mountaineering requires the skills practiced year after year
35. We know from the passage that _______.
A. mountaineering has no appeal to people
B. physical quality is more important than mental one for climbers
C. it is possible for an old man of fifty or sixty to climb the Alps
D. a mountain climber would pass his best by the age of thirty
The Untied Nations was formed on October 24, 1945, when the United States, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, China and France and a majority of other member countries signed the Charter(宪章) of the United Nations. The name “United Nations” was actually created by US President Franklin Roosevelt in the 1942 Declaration of United Nations.
The Charter of the United Nations is the document that guides the organization. It describes the organization’s purposes, principles, membership and composition.
According to Article I of the Charter, the purposes of the United Nations are:
to maintain international peace and security…;
to develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;
to achieve international co-operation in solving international problems of an economic, social, cultural or humanitarian character and in promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedom for all…
to be a center for harmonizing(协调) the actions of nations in the attainment of these common ends.
The UN is made up of several units, or bodies. The main bodies of the UN are: the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Secretariat, the International Court of Justice, the Economic and Social Council, and the Trusteeship Council.
The body with which most people are familiar is the General Assembly. This is the picture you often see of the United Nations, a large body of delegates, similar to a congress, voting on a resolution. There are currently 192 member nations in the UN, and each has one vote in the Assembly. Some important questions that come before the General Assembly, like possible actions to maintain peace or admission of new members, require a two-thirds vote for passage.
36. Which of the following is NOT one of the United Nations’ purposes mentioned in this passage?
A. To harmonize the actions of nations B. To help nations strengthen their power
C. To fight for human freedom. D. To fight for human rights.
37. If the General Assembly wants to admit a new member, it requires at least the agreement of ________ countries.
A. 120 B. 128 C. 150 D. 192
38. What is the meaning of the underlined word “Composition” in the text?
A. A piece of music. B. A short text.
C. Different parts of an organization. D. The nations in an organization.
39. Which part of the United Nations performs the function of deciding actions to maintain peace?
A. The General Assembly. B. The Security Council.
C. The Secretariat. D. The International Court of Justice.
40. What will probably be introduced next in this passage?
A. The Security Council. B. UN calendar of events.
C. The actions that the United Nations has ever taken.
D. Some famous people in the United Nations.
The common cold is the world’s most widespread illness, which is plagues(疫病) that flesh receives.
The most widespread fallacy(谬误) of all is that colds caused by cold. They are not. They are caused by viruses passing on from person to person. You catch a cold by coming into contact, directly or indirectly, with someone who already has one. If cold causes colds, it would be reasonable to expect the Eskimos to suffer from them forever. But they do not. And in isolated arctic regions explorers have reported being free from colds until coming into contact again with infected people from the outside world by way of packages and mail dropped from airplanes.
During the First World War soldiers who spent long periods in the trenches(战壕), cold and wet, showed no increased tendency to catch colds.
In the Second World War prisoners at the notorious Auschwitz concentration camp(集中营), naked and starving, were astonished to find that they seldom had colds. At the Common Cold Research Unit in England, volunteers took part in Experiments in which they gave themselves to the discomforts of being cold and wet for long stretches of time. After taking hot baths, they put on bathing suits, allowed themselves to be with cold water, and then stood about dripping wet in drafty room. Some wore wet socks all day while others exercised in the rain until close to exhaustion. Not one of the volunteers came down with a cold unless a cold virus was actually dropped in his nose.
If, then, cold and wet have nothing to do with catching colds, why are they more frequent in the winter？Despite the most pains-taking research, no one has yet found the answer. One explanation offered by scientists is that people tend to stay together indoors more in cold weather than at other times, and this makes it easier for cold viruses to be passed on.
No one has yet found a cure for the cold. There are drugs and pain suppressors(止痛片) such as aspirin, but all they do is relieve the symptoms(症状).

46. A severe ocean storm hit South Korea in August. It set a new national record for rainfall. In central Europe, more than one hundred people died in flooding caused by heavy rainfall in September. The flooding also resulted in thousands of millions of dollars in property damage. Yet large parts of North and South America had extremely dry weather.
47. One member of the Chicago Climate Exchange is American Electric Power. It's the biggest owner of electric power producers in the United States. Company officials say they hope their company's membership will demonstrate the ability of the C-C-X to grow.
48. For example, members of some groups make a kissing noise by tightening their mouths and sucking in air. Some groups use leaves to clean themselves or protect their hands from sharp objects. The scientists found that some of the animals use sticks as tools to remove insects from holes in trees. Other orangutans use leaves to crush insects or gather water.
49. Professors Parmesan and Yohe used similar methods to examine one hundred and seventy-two kinds of wildlife. They examined the timing of events in the spring, such as the appearance of flowers and the reproduction of animals. They found that these events happened an average of two days earlier than normal every ten years.
50. They say illegal operations to remove trees are causing large areas of forest to disappear. Environmental Investigation Agency director Dave Currey says the illegal operations are completely out of control.

Glad to receive your letter of April 15. Now I will tell you how to apply for a driving license here in China.
I am looking forward to meeting you in China.
When I was a little girl , my mother always told me what I should do and not .What I can remember is that when I was in the primary school, I didn’t want to go to school because I hated the math teacher who used to punish me for I didn’t finish my homework on time. Instead of forcing me to go to school, my mother just told me if I didn’t go to school my friends and my teachers would not like me anymore. What’s more, she told me I should not hate the math teacher on account of my fault and never hate anybody if I wanted to be likable. Since that time, I have known that being likable is very important.
While I was growing up, I read a lot of books in order to be a likable person. There is a famous writer, Dale Carnegie. He wrote a book called How to Win Friends and Influence People, which taught me a lot .Being a likable person we should respect others and become genuinely interested in other people. In my opinion, the most significant one is that we should be honest and sincere. The second way is that we should be glad to give them a hand when it is needed. Finally, I suppose that being a good listener is quite important as well. We should participate in their suffering and encourage them in time.
In a word, only if we stand by the people even when they are in the darkest time and never desert them can we be a likable in the social life.

Why can’t they watch where they are going?” I thought. People 49 down at me, pity in their eyes. Then they would look away, maybe because they thought the 50 they forgot me the better.
“I’m just like you!” I wanted to scream. “The only 51 is that you've got legs, and I have wheels.”
People in wheelchairs are not 52. They can see every look and hear each word. Looking out at the faces, I finally understood: I was once just like them. I 53 people in wheelchairs exactly the way they did not 54 to be treated. I realized it is some of us with two healthy legs who are 55disabled.

One evening I went out and left my 17-year-old son in charge of his 8-year-old brother and 4-year-old sister．On this occasion, the work was made less troublesome by the presence of his girlfriend．I left with complete confidence that the older children would do a wonderful job of babysitting the younger children and the younger children would do a wonderful job of accompanying the older ones．Later, I discovered that complete confidence was the last thing I should have left home with.
I had decided to return home earlier than planned so that my son and his girlfriend could go out．I called home with this happy news．But instead of hearing his cheerful, grateful voice on the other end of the line, all I heard was the sound of a telephone ringing.
It was, I should point out, after 10 p.m., when the two younger children should have been in bed, and when the two older children should have been answering the phone．“I’ll give him a lesson,”I said．I decided they must be outside．Why they might be outside at 10:30 on a wintry night I had no idea, but it was the only explanation I could come up with.
Finally, in desperation, I called his girlfriend’s house．After what seemed like countless rings, his girlfriend answered．“Yes,” she said brightly, “He’s right here.”
He came on the phone．I was not my usual calm, rational（理智的） self．After all, one of the rules of survival for modern parents is that you can’t trust modern teenagers．“Where are the children?” I said．He said they were with him．They had done nothing wrong．My son had taken the younger children over to his girlfriend’s house just for ice cream and cake．This was too good to be believed．Well, it turns out that I shouldn’t have believed it．It was only part of the truth.
The following Saturday evening we were at my parents’ home, celebrating my birthday．My oldest son gave me the children’s gifts．Mounted and framed were a series of lovely color photographs of my children, dressed in their best clothes, and wearing their most wonderful expressions.

“Dr. Papaderos, what is the meaning of life?”
The usual laughter followed, and people stirred（骚动）to go. Papaderos held up his hand and stilled the room and looked at me for a long time, asking with his eyes if I was serious and seeing from my eyes that I was.
"I will answer your question."
Taking his wallet out of his hip pocket, he fished into a leather billfold and brought out a very small round mirror, about the size of a quarter. And what he said went like this:
"When I was a small child, during the war, we were very poor and we lived in a remote village. One day, on the road, I found the broken pieces of a mirror. A German motorcycle had been wrecked in that place.
I tried to find all the pieces and put them together, but it was not possible, so I kept only the largest piece. This one, and, by scratching it on a stone, I made it round. I began to play with it as a toy and became fascinated by the fact that I could reflect light into dark places where the sun would never shine---in deep holes and crevices（裂缝）and dark closets. It became a game for me to get light into the most inaccessible places I could find.
I kept the little mirror, and, as I went about my growing up, I would take it out in idle moments and continue the challenge of the game. As I became a man, I grew to understand that this was not just a child's game but a metaphor for what I might do with my life. I came to understand that I am not the light or the source of light. But light---truth, understanding, knowledge---is there, and it will shine in many dark places only if I reflect it.
I am a fragment（碎片） of a mirror whose whole design and shape I do not know. Nevertheless, with what I have I can reflect light into the dark places of this world---into the black places in the hearts of men---and change some things in some people. Perhaps others may see and do likewise. This is what I am about. This is the meaning of my life."
61．On hearing the author's question, Dr. Papaderos at first.
A．laughed at his foolishness B．wasn't sure of the answer
C．doubted his seriousness D．wasn't interested at all
62．How did Dr. Papaderos get the small round mirror when he was a child?
A．He found it on the road and made it round
B．A dying German soldier gave him as a present.
C．He chanced to find it in the street while playing
D．He put the broken pieces together and made it.
63．Why did Dr. Papaderos like the small round mirror so much as a child?
A. Because he was too poor to afford other toys.
B. Because it could shine the places where the sun couldn't reach.
C. Because he believed it would bring good luck to him.
D.Because it told him a lot about what life really meant to him.
64．The underlined "metaphor" in the 7ch paragraph most probably means .
A．symbol B．source C．lightD．purpose
65．Which of the following might be the best title for the passage?

Today, millions of people want to learn or improve their English but it is difficult to find the best method. Is it better to study in Britain or America or to study in your own country?
The advantages of going to Britain seem obvious. Firstly, you will be able to listen to the language all the time you are in the country. You will be surrounded completely by the language wherever you go. Another advantage is that you have to speak the language if you are with other people. In Italy, it is always possible, in the class, to speak Italian if you want to and the learning is slower.
On the other hand, staying at home to study. You don’t have to make big changes to your life. As well as this, it is also a lot cheaper than going to Britin but it is never possible to achieve the results of living in the UK. If you have a good teacher in Italy, I think you can learn in a more concentrated way than being in Britain without going to a school.
So, in conclusion, I think that if you have enough time and enough money, the best choice is to spend some time in the UK. This is simply not possible for mot people, so being here in Italy is the only （可行的）viable option. The most important thing to do in this situation is to maximuse your opporturniues: to speak only English in class and to try to use English whenever possible outside the class.

US billionaires are back on top with Microsoft founder Bill Cates again the world's richest man in a year when even billionaires felt the heat of the global recession, Forbes magazine said Wednesday.
The wealthy few did not escape big shocks this year, with net worth on the list of 793 billionaires - down from l ,125 billionaires in 2008 - plummeting t0 2. 4 trillion dollars from 4. 4trillion , Forbes said
“The biggest news today is that we are here and there still are billionaires," Forbes spokeswoman Monie Begley joked at a press conference
The much-watched annual rich list put Gates back on top with a net worth of 40 billion dollars, although, he saw his bank balance lose 18 billion over the last 12 months. In second came investor Warren Buffett with 37 billion dollars, despite losing 25 billion dollars this year in the value of his Berkshire Hathaway shares. Also losing 25 billion dollars, Mexican telecoms king Carlos Slim still managed to come in third with 35 billion dollars.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, at number 17, was notable as the only top 20 members to see a net gain. That was not because of his salary, which is a symbolic one dollar a year, but thanks to re-evaluation of Bloomberg financial news agency after the mayor bought a 20 percent stake from Merrill Lynch last year for 4. 5 billion dollars.
About 64 percent of the billionaires are self-made and their average age is 63. 7 , a slight rise resulting from the lower number of rich Russians and Chinese, whose average ages last year were 46 and 48.
By contrast with that aging trend. Gates is a relatively youthful 53. The youngest billionaire prize this year goes to Albert von Thurn und Taxis of Germany, who is 25 and listed as having 2. 1 billion dollars. But one of the young success stories from last year - Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg - dropped off the list altogether.

A．Bill Gates. B．Warren Buffett. C．Carlos Slim.D．Michael Bloomberg.

C．there are many billionaires in America, which is the biggest news today

The "Earth Hour" initiative(自发行动) started in Australia' s biggest city Sydney last year when an estimated 2. 2 million people flicked the switch - leaving the Sydney Opera House bathed in moonlight and the Harbor Bridge blacked out.
Organizer Andy Ridley said Sydney ' s 60 minutes of darkness generated huge interest around the world and 23 other cities from the Asia Pacific, North America, Europe and the Middle East had now signed up to be part of the 2008 event.
The eight latest cities to join "Earth Hour" are Atlanta, San Francisco and Phoenix in the US; Thailand's capital Bangkok; Ottawa, Vancouver and Montreal in Canada and Dublin in Ireland.
They joined Australian cities Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide; Denmark's Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense; the Philippine capital Manila, Fiji ' s biggest city Suva. Christchurch in New Zealand; Chicago; Tel Aviv and Toronto.
Ridley said he expected the "Earth Hour" concept, which is managed by the conservation group WWF, to extend beyond the borders of these countries on the scheduled start time of 8:00 p. m. local time on Saturday March 29.
“ I think it already has become much bigger," he said. "The idea was that anyone could do it, whether they were in a small village in France or a city like Sydney. "
Ridley said the Sydney event, in which residents were asked to switch off lights and appliances for one hour, had raided awareness about the problem of global warming while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by conserving energy.
"I know that on the night we thought we might be able to cut energy use in the city by five percent but it ended up being 10. 1 percent," he said.
He said he hoped Earth Hour provided a "very big visual message" to politicians that climate change must be addressed quickly.
“The problem is massive but we do make a difference when we all take action," he said.

A rise in the number of suicides（自杀）in South Korea has led policeman Yoo Byong-jong to a new job. He patrols（巡逻）Seoul’s bridges to prevent desperate people throwing themselves into the river.
According to South Korea’s health ministry, suicide rates have doubled in a decade and are now the leading cause of death for people in their 20s and 30s.
The country has the fourthhighest suicide rate among the 30 industrialized countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development．It recorded 22.8 suicide deaths for every 100, 000 people in 2003.That's lower than Hungary，Finland and close neighbor Japan .But the number is growing by about 1 percent each year，faster than for all other OECD nations.
In a move to cut suicides by a fifth by 2010，the health ministry is running a television ad campaign. It opens with a lonely man walking on a bridge. A voiceover says，“Think five minutes more before you give it all away...Don't forget you have a loving family.” Other ministry plans include setting up more hotlines and training more suicide counselors. Authorities are also limiting websites that provide suicide methods and sometimes even sell toxic(有毒的)chemicals.
Distressed individuals range from students worried about poor grades to people in debt as well as disgraced politicians.
Exports say the rising number in some way can be blamed on media coverage of recent highprofile suicides. These include top business leaders and celebrities(名人)who apparently lead a number of people to copy their actions.
“We saved 50 lives this year when people turned to bridges as a place to die after news reports of such deaths by ‘big shots’，” said the 38yearold Yoo，in December.
Last July，the government and civil associations urged media to avoid reporting specific methods and locations of suicides. But it is difficult to clearly give reasons for the suicide increase.
67．The passage is mainly about ______.
A．desperation problems in Korea

C．how to reduce suicides in Korea

68．Suicide rates in South Korea .

69．Lowering the number of reported suicides by celebrities in the media in Korea ______.
A．will be limited
B．damage the fame of media
C．didn't affect people's daily life.
D．might cause fewer people to commit suicide
70．From the passage, we can infer that .
A．authorities manage websites efficiently
B．present hotlines are not enough for suicide counselors
C．cutting suicides by a fifth by 2010 is easy to carry out
D．people choose suicide as the way to end their lives for a lack of love
