The earliest men did not have much time for art; they faced many dangers, and hunting for food took 36 almost all their time . But after many thousands of years, 37 perhaps a million years or more, they became very good hunters, and 38 gave them a little free time which they could use for other things. A few of them began to paint on the walls of the caves 39 they lived. Many early artists painted animals 40 they were the most important things in their lives. Animals supplied 41 to keep them living, and skins to keep them 42 .
Like painters today, the 43 artists possibly painted for many 44 , Perhaps they wanted to give their cave a little brightness and color; perhaps they had a few special ideas which they could express most easily in a 45 and perhaps they 46 wanted to spend a little time in a pleasant way.

In many parts of the world , people have 50 cave paintings. The earliest paintings 51 we know about are in Europe.

Thirty years ago I worked in a company. My job was to sell the cars. I was young and strong and I had been to most parts of the world and I spent one fifth of my time in the trains or planes. I liked such a life and sometimes I called myself “traveler”.
But one day I got into trouble. It was a cold morning. It blew heavily and the ground was covered with thick snow outside. I was still in bed though it was nine. I finished a long journey the day before and decided to have a good rest. Suddenly the telephone rang and my manager told me to fly to New York to take part in an important meeting. I had to get up and after a quick breakfast I hurried to the airport. The taxi went slowly and I missed the first flight. I had to take the next one. It meant I would wait for nearly five hours in the waiting-room. But five hours later a passenger said the information showed there was a bomb in our plane and the policemen were looking for it. And another five hours passed and most passengers lost their patience before we were allowed to get on the plane. At the entrance each passenger and their baggage had to be examined. A young man who seemed a soldier shouted at the policemen at the entrance, “If I had a gun in my baggage, I would shoot you two hours ago!”

“Some day, there will be no Americans left in the NBA.” Said 12-year-old Xing Tao, who joined his school’s team two years ago, after watching Yao in a televised NBA game. “The players will all be Chinese, like Yao!”
To China Yao is a home-grown superstar who helped make the world’s first basketball league closer to Chinese players. To the NBA, the 2.23-metre centre offers an opening of a different sort into the world’s largest new market.
Yao’s NBA first appearance against the Indiana Pacers in October reached 287 million households in China. By contrast (对照), there are only about 105 million households in the US. That game might have been a bit of a let down to Yao’s fans. He played just 11 of the 48 minutes, had two rebounds and got no points.
Compare that with his performance on December 19, and also against Indiana, Yao won 29 points and 10 rebounds. “This was one of the most exciting games I’ve had,” Yao said after Houston’s 95-83 victory.
“Yao Ming has brought the NBA closer to the Chinese,” said NBA spokeswoman Cheong Sau Ching, who is based in Hong Kong. “That makes the dream seem achievable for other people in China.”
The 22-year-old Yao is not the country’s first player in the NBA; Wang Zhizhi broke down that wall as a player with the Dallas Mavericks(小牛队)in April 2001. But Yao’s combination of modesty and his skills make him a favourite back home.
60.What’s the direct reason for Xing Tao to join the school’s basketball team?
A.He watched an NBA game
B.He liked basketball
C.He hoped to play for Houston Rockets
D.He had a dream that he would become a basketball star.

A.Middle school students want to play basketball
B.Yao Ming makes NBA closer to China
C.There’ll be no Americans left in the NBA
D.There are many new stars from China in the NBA
62.What does “letdown” in paragraph six mean?
A.failure B.surprise C.disappointment D.sadness
63.Why does Yao Ming win more popularity than Wang Zhizhi at home?
A.He has performed excellently
B.He is modest C.His height D.A & B
There are some kinds of detectives who do not wear a uniform, like Hausman, solve endless mysteries every year. There is, for example, the dust detective. Tiny bits of dust stick to your clothes, your fingernails, your hair, or your shoes. They catch in your nose and in your ears. They tell where you have been and what you have done lately. The dust detective often helps catch a criminal by proving that he has been on the scene of the crime(罪案)
Then there is the wood detective. By studying a piece of wood he can tell what kind of tree the piece of wood came from. He can tell where it was grown, and how old it is.

There is an English saying that “Laughter is the best medicine.” Until recently, few people took the saying seriously. Now however, doctors have begun to look into laughter and the effects it has on the human body. They have found that laughter can really improve people’s health.
Tests were carried out to study the effects of laughter on the body. People watched funny films while doctors checked their hearts, blood pressure, breathing and muscles. It was found that laughter has similar effects to physical exercise. It increases blood pressure, makes the heart beat quicker and makes people breathe deeper; it also works on several groups of muscles in the face, the stomach, and even the feet. If laughter exercises the body, it must be beneficial.
Other tests have shown that laughter appears to be able to reduce the effects of pain on the body. In one experiment doctors produced pain in groups of students who listened to different radio programs. The group that tolerated(忍耐)the pain for the longest time was the group which listened to a funny program. The reason why laughter can reduce pain seems to be that it helps to produce a kind of chemical in the brain which diminishes both stress and pain.
As a result of these discoveries, some doctors in the United States now hold laughter clinics, in which they help to improve their patients’ condition by encouraging them to laugh. They have found that even if their patients do not really feel like laughing, making them smile is enough to produce beneficial effects similar to those caused by laughter.

68.Why do some doctors hold laughter clinics?
A.Because they want to earn more money.
B.Because they think they will heilp the patients recover from illnesses.
C.Because they want to improve their patients’ condition.
D.Because they want their patients to practice how to laugh
69.According to the author, we should .
A.laugh as much as possible
B.watch more funny films
C.smile all the time
D.spend more time in laughter clinics

80.—Do you let your kids travel alone at night?
Would you spend more time playing outside, reading, or studying? Well, now it’s our chance to turn off your TV and find out! TV-Turnoff Week is here.
The goal of TV-Turnoff Week is to let people leave their TV sets off and participate in activities from drawing to biking. The event was founded by TV-Turnoff Network, a non-profit organization which started the event in 1995. In the beginning, only a few thousand people took part. Last year more that 7.6 million people participated, including people in every state in America and in more than 12 other countries! This is the 11 th year in which organizers are asking people to “turn off the TV and turn on life.”
According to the TV-Turnoff Network, the average kids in the US spend more time in front of the TV (about 1, 023 hours per year)than they do in school (about 900 hours per year). Too much TV watching has made many kids .In fact, in 2001’s TV-Turn-off week, US Surgeon General David Satcher said, “We are raising the most overweight generation of youngsters in American history. This week is about saving lives.”
Over the years, studies have shown that watching a lot of TV leads to poor eating habits, too little exercise, and violence. Frank Vespe of the TV-Turnoff Network said that turning off the TV “ is , or should be ,part of a healthy lifestyle.”
“One of the great lessons of participating in TV-Turnoff Week is the realization that every time I turn on the TV, I’m deciding not to do something else,” Vespe said.
TV-Turnoff Week seems to be making a difference. Recent US Census (人口普查)data shows that about 72 percent of kids under 12 have a limit on their TV time. That’s up from about 63 percent ten years ago.
