Stages of Hurricane：Simple Storms Grow Into Giants
A storm progresses through four different stages before it is actually considered a hurricane. First is a tropical disturbance (热带扰动),which has thunderstorms and rotating(旋转)winds. Next is a tropical depression(热带低气压), which is similar to a tropical disturbance, but has winds between 23 and 39 miles per hour. A tropical storm is the next level, which has stronger wind speeds between 40and 73 miles per hour. Once winds reach 74 miles per hour the storm is officially called a hurricane. The wind picks up energy from the warm surface ocean water.
As a hurricane crosses over land, it begins to become weaker or break apart and reduce in strength. This is because it is no longer over the warm ocean water that it needs for energy. At this point, a hurricane can still cause a lot of damage because of high winds, rain, and flooding. But unless it makes its way back over the open ocean, it is downgraded from a hurricane back to a tropical storm.
What’s Your Name, Hurricane?
Hurricanes and tropical storms are given names to help people recognize them. Scientists refer to hurricanes and storms by name as they track them across the ocean.
Before 1953, hurricanes were not given official names. From 1953 through 1978, hurricanes were only given female names, like Isabel, Camille, Claudette, and Wilma. Beginning in 1979, hurricanes were given the names of both women and men. Today, the names alternate male and female, and they are named in order of letters.
For example, in 2010, storms were named as follows: Alex(male), Bonnie(female), Colin(male), Danielle(female), Earl(male) and so on...
There are six different lists of names that change, so the same names are used every six years. The only way that a new name is added is when a hurricane has been particularly deadly or costly and the name is retired, then replaced with a new one.
4. Which of the following is the right order of stages of a hurricane?
A Tropical depression, tropical disturbance, tropical storm, hurricane
B Tropical disturbance,tropical depression, tropical storm, hurricane
C Tropical storm, tropical depression, tropical disturbance, hurricane
D Tropical storm, tropical disturbance, tropical depression, hurricane
5. What happens when a hurricane crosses over land?
A It breaks apart and forms tornadoes. B It returns to the ocean afterwards.
C It moves more quickly. D It becomes less powerful.
6. The underlined word “alternate” in paragraph 4 means “________”.
A take turns between B carry on C come from D cause trouble to
7. What do we know about the hurricanes?
A Six common hurricane names are often used. B An old name will be replaced every year.
C Most of them are deadly and costly. D They didn’t have official names until 1953.
When Nora Gross was just four years old, she and her father passed a homeless man. Concerned about the cold winter weather, Gross asked, “Can we take him home?” Her question became the starting point of a project that has become one of the largest youth philanthropy(慈善行为) programs in the world.
Gross’s big idea was small coins. She knew that pennies often seem like worthless things. But she thought that if she and other students could gather enough of them, the money could really make a difference. This was the beginning of the Penny Harvest. Today, more than half a million students take part in the program. In its first 20 years, the Penny Harvest has collected $8.1 million in pennies!
Gross and her father founded Common Cents, a not-for-profit(非盈利的)organization, to manage their money collecting efforts. They believe the penny drives can help develop young people’s generosity and moral(道德的) character. After the pennies are collected, students form philanthropy roundtables to discuss community problems and to decide where to donate(捐) the collected money. Many students become inspired by the process and go on to become volunteers at the organizations they support, which include animal care facilities, community gardens, senior centers, and homeless shelters.
Teddy Gross explains: “We at Common Cents regard America’s billion-dollar resource of pennies —found in large quantities in the homes of both the rich and poor—as the philanthropic belongings of young people. For this reason, every penny the children collect is theirs to give away in an educational group process.” The students devoted to the Penny Harvest have changed the world for the better, and they have learned valuable lessons about caring for others in their communities.
8. What was the basis of Nora Gross’s idea of taking the homeless man home?
A We should prepare for extreme weather. B We should take care of people in need.
C We should set homes for the homeless. D We should be more careful with money.
9. The Penny Harvest was created to help young people ______.
A know the running of non-profit organizations B get rid of worthless pocket change
C contribute to their communities D learn how to raise money
10. Teddy Gross would most likely agree that young people _______.
A are always full of strange plans B must be taught to be generous
C can run businesses much better than adults D can be trusted to make smart giving decisions
11. According to the last paragraph, Common Cents is ________.
A a strong respond to penny waste B a powerful voice against poverty
C a positive force for social change D a group effort to solve housing problems
When researchers in the United States compared school lunches to home packed lunches, parents got a failing grade.
Researchers in Massachusetts inspected lunches belonging to about 600 grade three and four students at 12 different schools in the state. They found that lunches packed at home were generally less nutritious (有营养的)than meals provided by schools.
School cafeterias(自助餐厅)in the United States must follow the rules set out by the National School Lunch Program(NSLP), a government service that provides low-cost or free lunches to students. The rules require schools to serve more fruit, vegetables, whole grain and low-fat dairy products(乳制品). School must also limit the amounts of fat, salt and sugar in the food they serve.
The researchers found that none of the packed lunches they examined met all of the requirements on the NSLP list. Only 27 percent of the packed lunches met at least three of the requirements. Ninety-five percent of all the lunches did not contain a serving of vegetables. One in four lunches did not include a main food item. Instead, they contained packaged snacks and desserts. The researchers said they were surprised by the amount of sugary drinks and packaged foods—like potato chips, cookies and fruit snacks—they found in the lunches.
Since about 40 percent of American school children bring their lunch, unhealthy food in their lunchboxes could have serious results. Serving nutritious food to children not only keeps them healthy and ready to learn, it also helps to develop good eating habits, and it can affect their future health.
Jeanne Goldberg, the professor who led the lunchbox study in Massachusetts, said the researchers recognize that parents have to consider the cost and convenience of lunch foods as well as what their children will actually eat.
“Unfortunately, these factors are not always in harmony with good nutrition,” she said.
Even if parents pack healthy lunches, there is no way to make sure their children eat them. Professor Goldberg said the study shows that it is necessary not only to help parents find lunch options(可选择的东西) that are convenient, affordable and healthy, but also encourage children to choose those options.
12. Compared with home-packed lunches, school lunches ________
A are more expensive B are more nutritionally balanced
C provide a limited amount of fruit D contain more packaged snacks and desserts
13. What is paragraph 4 mainly about?
A The process in which the research was carried out. B The existing problems of home-packed lunches.
C The advantage of bringing lunchboxes. D Ways to prepare home-packed lunches.
14. What was Jeanne Goldberg’s attitude to the lunchboxes instead?
A Neutral. B Supportive. C Unsatisfied. D Uncaring .
15. What is the purpose of the text?
A To recommend children to eat at school.
B To advise children to give up home-packed lunches.
C To encourage children to develop good eating habits.
D To raise parents’ awareness about children’s lunch nutrition.

How to Improve Teamwork
Teamwork and its importance is known to most of us, isn’t it? But how do we improve it to achieve better goals and achieve them faster? Here are some simple ways to improve teamwork that is a must for every organization, big or small.
It is what bridges gaps between people in different teams and is one of the key factors to improve teamwork. Most problems arise at a workplace due to lack of good communication skills. It helps to build interpersonal relationships among the team members. Good understanding among team members produces better results for the company.
If you want to know how to improve teamwork, the easiest way is this. You need to fix a time every week where everyone would get together and talk about what happened in the days that passed. 17 Suggestions can be taken to make the team function more properly and more effectively.
Set combined aims
The goals need to be set by keeping in mind the bigger picture. 18 Growth of the organization should be given top priority(优先权)for the only reason that in the progress of the team, lies the progress of the employees. There should be one aim for the entire team every one month and this should be divided further into the respective(各个的)teams.
Team building activities
19 There are professionals who specialize in producing these games and these can be called during office hours. The employees get a break from the everyday routine and also get to learn something new.
This is very important if you are looking at improving the teamwork in your organization. Every employee has the right to say what he/she thinks is right or wrong and why. There should be regular voting for certain decisions where everyone gets a say and equality is maintained(维持). Having the right to share thoughts and views gives the teams a sort of confidence as well. With open-hear speech also comes unity in the form of support of common views.
A Problem solving
B Freedom of speech
C Improve communication
D These won’t only get you good results, and you’ll get them faster too.
E The goal should be looked at as a common goal and not that of self.
F One of the best ways to improve teamwork is to hold team building games.
G Here people can talk about the good that happened and the bad too and how it can be improved.

阅读下面短文， 根据所给情节进行续写， 使之构成一个完整的故事。
One day when I was 12, my mother gave me an order: I was to walk to the public library, and borrow at least one book for the summer. This was one more weapon of hers to defeat my strange problem, my inability to read.
In the library, I found my way into the “Children’s Room”. I sat down on the floor and pulled a few books off the shelf at random. The cover of a book caught my eye. It presented a picture of beagle. I had recently had a beagle, the first and only animal companion I ever had as a child. He was my secret sharer, but one morning, he was gone, given away to someone who had the space and the money to care for him. I never forgot my beagle.
There on the book’s cover was a beagle which looked identical to my dog. I ran my fingers over the picture of the dog on the cover. My eyes ran across the title., Amos, the Beagle with a Plan. Unknowingly, I had read the title. Without opening the book, I borrowed it from the library for the summer.
Under the shade of a bush, I started to read about Amos. I read very, very slowly with difficulty. Though pages were turned slowly, I got the main idea of the story about a dog who, like mine, had been separated from his family and who finally found his way back home. That dog was my dog, and I was the little boy in the book. At the end of the story, my mind continued to the final scene of reunion, on and on, until my own lost dog and I were, in my mind, running together.
My mother’s call returned me to the real world. I suddenly realized something. __________________
And years later, she was proud that her son had read thousands of books, and was awarded a PhD in literature.________________________________

One day I was reading a travel magazine when an article about Prague came into my view.
Prague is the capital of Czech Republic, located in the center of Europe. It is also a place where the eastern and western parts of Europe meet. During world War II, many European cities were highly bombed. However, little damage was caused to the old city. As a result, all the ancient buildings remain undamaged.Tourism makes the city attractive to numerous tourists. As the symbol of Prague, Old Town Square is the number one stop. If you go there, remember that some amazing things have happened in the past...
Thus, the thought struck me that our family would travel around Prague in the coming summer vacation.
I’m writing to express my heartfelt gratitude to you for your kind help and great hospitality.
I can well remember I was quite uneasy when I first stepped in your house, but your humor and encouragement soon eased my anxiety and made me feel at home. During my stay, whenever I had a problem in language or study, you are always a great help. Besides, you even invited me to an opera, which is one of the best memories in my life.
I do hope someday you’ll come to China and let me show you around my hometown.
My mother’s call returned me to the real world. I suddenly realized something: The trick of reading is to put yourself into the story experiencing what the author goes through and appreciating its meaning in your heart. As long as I clung to the this process, not only was my inability to read defeated, but also an inner aspiration to read was stimulated, which changed my life for the better. During the summer, I incredibly developed a special companionship with books, ranging from vivid story books to academic articles. My mother was more than delighted to see my change.
And years later, she was proud that her son had read thousands of books, and was awarded a PhD in literature. She proposed that my experience should be of magnificent use to others. So I set up a team to provide those who had difficulty reading with space to turn to, through which I myself also gained a better understanding of reading as well as my life. My first adventure of reading turned out to be a permanent treasure.
