Seven loyal(忠实的)readers came to the Teens Office two weeks ago. They had a wonderful day learning how to make a newspaper. But what 36 made them excited was that they had their say.
“What most _37_ me was when I was saying something, I found all eyes were on me,” said Tang Shining, one of the students. Her friend, Li Chunbei _38_, and felt very glad that when she was talking, the editors(编辑) nodded and _39_ took notes.
Students are happy to see the editors listen to their _40_. You may often _41_about being neglected(忽视) by teachers and parents. _42__ before complaining, please make sure that you have already spoken about your _43_.
Traditionally in China, teachers at school and parents were_44_ the ones to tell teenagers what they should and shouldn’t do. The young are _45_ to doing what they are told, rather than thinking by themselves. But then their ideas would be locked in their brain and not be _46_.
A girl wrote to Teens about her family story. She _47__ to be very sad because her father seldom talked and played with her. After years of consideration, she _48_ decided to write her father a letter, telling him about her sadness. To her _49__, the father _50_, saying that he didn’t realize his mistake. From then on, he really _51_.
Sometimes, we need to let our _52__ be heard, so others can understand our thoughts and feelings.
Don’t be afraid of being _53_ for what you have done. You know it is your _54_ to speak your mind. Even if your suggestions are denied, at least you have tried your best. You will not be left with any _55_.

Are you sometimes a little tired and sleepy in the early afternoon? Many people feel this way after lunch. They may think that eating lunch is the cause of the sleepiness. Or, in summer, they may think it is the heat. However, the real reason lies inside their bodies. At that time – about eight hours after you wake up – your body temperature goes down. This is what makes you slow down and feel sleepy. Scientists have tested sleep habits in experiments where there was no night or day. The people in these experiments almost always followed a similar sleeping pattern. They slept for one long period and then for one short period about eight hours later.
In many parts of the world, people take naps(小睡) in the middle of the day. This is especially true in warmer climates(气候), where the heat makes work difficult in the early afternoon. Researchers are now saying that naps are good for everyone in any climate. A daily nap gives one a more rested body and mind and therefore is good for health in general. In countries where naps are traditional (传统的), people often suffer less from problems such as heart disease.
Many working people, unfortunately, have no time to take naps. Though doctors may advise taking naps, employers do not allow it! If you do have the chance, however, here are a few tips about making the most of your nap. Remember that the best time to take a nap is about eight hours after you get up. A short sleep too late in the day may only make you feel more tired and sleepy afterward. This can also happen if you sleep for too long. If you do not have enough time, try a short nap – even ten minutes of sleep can be helpful.

A. Their body temperature becomes lower.

C. Only people in warmer climate need to take a nap.

63. Naps are good for everyone in any climate because ______________ .

An Australian company, Smart Car Technologies, has developed a system that lets drivers know when they’re speeding. When the technology becomes commercially available, it could help lead-footed drivers avoid tickets and also save lives. The company that developed the product hopes to convince Australian government agencies to put the technology into use in their automobile fleets.
The product, called Speed Alert, links real-time location data and speed obtained with the help of GPS to a database of posted speed limits stored in a driver’s PDA or programmable mobile phone. The setup of the product does not need to be hooked up to a car’s speedometer. In fact, it is entirely portable. It will also work with newer phones and PDAs that have built-in GPS receivers. If a driver exceeds the speed limit, the speed is shown and an alert sounds.
Michael Paine, an Australian vehicle design engineer and traffic safety consultant, was hired to analyze the product. He told Live Science that his colleagues in the road safety field are “very enthusiastic” about what they’re now calling “intelligent speed alert.” Other research, according to Paine, shows that 40 percent of all traffic deaths involve speeding. There is also a potentially controversial future use: “Since the system is so portable, it would be easy to make it a requirement for teenage drivers to always use a speed alert device when driving,” Paine said. “The system even has the capability to record speeding violations, so parents can monitor their teenage drivers.”
The product will soon go on sale in Sydney.
68. What’s the purpose of the new product?
A. To inform us of the new car system. B. To introduce some improvement in cars.
C. To limit certain drivers to safe driving. D. To popularize the built-in car system.
69. The second paragraph mainly talks about .
A. the project of the built-in product B. why the system becomes popular
C. the functions of GPS in cars D. how the product is programmed
70. Which of the following is true of Speed Alert according to Michael Paine?
A. Most of the traffic deaths can be avoided. B. Speeding violations can be easily found out.
C. The system will excite some teenage drivers. D. The product will not be available for adults.
71. What can be the best title of the passage?
A. Speed Alert and Its Future Use. B. Progress in Car-making Science.
C. Warning for Adventurous Drivers. D. New In-Car Device against Speeding.
Although many online personality tests are fun, only a few will really give you insight into who you are and what you are supposed to be doing with your life.
At CareerPlanner.com we believe that each individual, regardless of (不管) race or religion, has a purpose in life, and until you discover what your purpose is, you will not find true happiness, nor true job satisfaction.
This doesn’t mean you won’t be successful. It just means you won’t be happy until you are moving towards your true purpose.
Unfortunately, our school system does very little to help students discover their true career. This is where online personality tests and career tests can help.
Online personality tests and career tests can help you better understand what type of work you should be doing to achieve job satisfaction, happiness, and success.
Personality tests are most useful in giving you insight into “how” your personality compares to others and “how” you like to work.
In particular, if you frequently experience difficulty working with others, or getting their support and cooperation, a really good personality test would show you how to get along better.
While personality tests are very useful at showing you how you like to work and how you like your work environment, they are not really designed to show you “what” type of work is right for you.
That is where Career Interest Tests come in. Online Career Tests, such as the CareerPlanner.com offers will help you discover what your true interests are, and what type of work you will be passionate (热诚的) about.
But back to personality tests. The most well-established personality tests are the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator R, and the Enneagram.
72. The underlined word “insight” in the first paragraph means _____.
A. theory B. demand C. understanding D. term
73. You can’t achieve true job satisfaction unless you _____.
A. find your true purpose in life B. choose the best work
C. get along well with others D. adapt to the work environment
74. The writer’s purpose in writing this passage is _____.
A. to recommend some popular online personality tests
B. to inform readers of online personality and career tests
C. to tell the differences between some popular online tests
D. to persuade people to take online personality or career tests
75. What will the writer most probably talk about next?
A. The differences between personality tests and career tests.
B. The similarities between personality tests and career tests.
C. The reasons why personality and career tests are popular.
D. The details of the two most well-established personality tests.

With the development of industry, the environment is becoming worse and worse. There are many kinds of pollution I worry about. The most serious two are air pollution and water pollution. There are many factors that cause air pollution, such as vehicles, factories, smokers and so on. A great lot of poisonous gases are sent out into the air, what’s worse, an awful lot of waste water is poured into the river. Rivers all over the world are becoming polluted with garbage and dangerous chemicals. Therefore, it’s high time we did something about it. In order to help clean the air, we must live a low-carbon lifestyle. We"d better go on foot or by bike instead of by car. It’s also our duty to make good use of water, such as reusing and saving water in our daily life. Meanwhile, the government should take some steps to protect our surroundings. Let’s take action, hand in hand, to protect our common home.
(Another possible version:)
The first fact I worry about is noise pollution. People can"t sleep well if there is too much noise. That"s why so many people prefer to live in the countryside rather than live in the noisy city. I suggest all the factories and cars shouldn"t make terrible noises. If they make terrible noise that isn"t allowed, they will be fined, and we can also produce the cars which can"t make terrible noise.
The other pollution is rubbish pollution. If everyone makes so much rubbish, one day we may live in a world filled with rubbish. Some people throw the waste paper about. I suggest rubbish should be put into different kinds of dustbins or paper bags.
