Last week I complained again about the dog coming in from the back door and bringing with him a blast of cold air. “So teach him to close the door,” my daughter Emma responded.
Teach a dog to close the door behind him? It’s a really hard thing to do. But then Emma took it a step further. “Come on, Kobe,” she said, holding some treats and placing him in front of the open door. “Touch.” And he did “touch”, which moved the door to a closed position. She rewarded him with a treat, smiled, looked at me, and said, “See!”
I saw and followed Emma’s way of training the dog. Each time he came in, I brought him back to the open door and asked him to close it (I changed the command, making it clearer). There had been failures, but lately more and more successes. And this morning Kobe asked to be let out when I was to open the door, so that he could close it and be treated.
There remains work to be done. I have to remove the hand signal so that he will close the door from a distance. And, I now realize, with effort the task will be completed and things are progressing well.
What a wonderful treat to have a dog that can close the door behind him. Even more wonders can be found in the lessons I learned so clearly from both Emma and Kobe.
36. Kobe expected to be let out this morning because he ______.
A. wanted to find something to eat outside
B. wanted to get a treat for closing the door
C. was used to going for a walk at that time
D. wanted to escape the owner’s training
37. It can be inferred from the text that the author will go on ______.
A. to teach the dog to open the doorB. to write a book on how to train a pet
C. to teach the dog to fetch the newspapers
D. training the dog to close the door
38. What has the author probably learned from Emma and Kobe?
A. Being patient is the key to success.
B. People can get along well with animals.
C. Using a good method can make things easier.
D. Animals are different from human beings in nature.
American teens are setting an example for their parents through their volunteer work, according to a new survey.
The national telephone survey found that more teens volunteer to support a charitable (慈善的) cause (56 percent) rather than have a part-time job (39 percent). Parents said 82 percent of teens do something to support the charitable causes, including volunteering, wearing a button or a T-shirt or donating money. 46 percent of the adults said they volunteer during their spare time, but they are also praised for encouraging their children to volunteer. The survey was carried out in the United States from January 29th to February 2nd among 2,003 adults.
Sara Johnson, a teacher who advises the student service club at a private high school in Chicago, says she’s seen an increase of teens taking part in social causes since last November. She said she saw a similar increase after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the Gulf Coast in 2005, and believed today’s teens are more involved in charitable work than adults.
The survey also found that a quarter of teens have become more involved in charitable causes or organizations as a result of the economic downturn (低迷), but the economy has teens working more hours at a paying job.
Unlike many public high schools across the nation, Illiana Christian does not require its students to clock public service hours. Student Melissa Martin said some kids were too busy with other activities like sports and music, but most of her classmates did volunteer.

A. more adults do volunteer than teens

Even before European explorers first saw the Great Lakes, they provided Native Americans with a way to transport goods. Probably the first European to see and explore the Great Lakes was a Frenchman, Etienne Brule, in the early 1600s. All but one of the Great Lakes have their names from Native American languages: Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario. The biggest lake, Superior, was named by the French.
Vessels (船) on the Great Lakes are not called ships, but boats. However, boats on the lakes can be huge. The newest of the lake freighters (货船) is over three hundred meters long. The Griffin was the one of the first sailing vessels on the Great Lakes. French explorer and trader La Salle built it in 1679. The boat set sail from an island in northern Lake Michigan. La Salle reached the Green Bay, and sent the boat back home with animal fur. No one ever saw the Griffin again. The loss of the Griffin established a long tradition of danger and mystery about Great Lakes travel.
On November 10th, 1975, the Fitzgerald was sailing on Lake Superior. It was struggling through a dangerous storm. It had lost its radar (雷达) and the old lighthouse at Whitefish Point was not in use. The boat and twenty-nine men disappeared into Lake Superior. In 1995, the Great Lakes Historical Shipwreck Society recovered the Fitzgerald’s bell. The bell is now kept at the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum. Each year on November 10th, a ceremony is held there to honor the crew members (船员) of the Fitzgerald.
43. Which of the Great Lakes are named in Native American languages?
A. Huron, Erie and Minnesota.B. Ontario, Huron and Superior.

B. It was the earliest boat used to transport goods.
C. It was the first boat that got lost on the Great Lakes.
D. It created a mystery about sailing on the Great Lakes.

Hollywood star Julia Roberts’ shooting at an ashram (印度高僧修行的处所) for Eat, Pray, Love is making media headlines.
Roberts, once the world’s best-paid actress, began the schedule of shooting at the Ashram Hari Mandir in the village, which was about 40km from New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport. However, the star’s presence has also brought armed policemen and private security guards there.
Shakuntala Devi, a middle-aged woman, who went to offer prayers (祷告) at the temple said to our reporter, “We were not allowed to enter and pray in the morning by the security.”
Kailash, a 21-year-old resident, said angrily, “I am going to barge in (闯入) any-how. Let me see who stops me. Why can they shoot here but we cannot even enter our own temple?”
When asked, a police official at the ashram replied: “God doesn’t have to go any-where... He is going to stay right here. They can visit him anytime later.”
The shooting is expected to go on till the first week of October.
Directed by Ryan Murphy, the movie is based on Pushcart prize-winning author Elizabeth Gilbert’s spirituality-travel memoirs (论文集), Eat, Love, Pray, and features Roberts as Gilbert who travels to Italy, India and Indonesia in search of peace.
Having already shot at New York and in Italy, the India part of the film will be shot at the Ashram Hari Mandir apart from an “open market” that will be set up from the Pataudi Palace main entrance to the ashram, Pataudi market and the nearby Mirzapur village.

The Internet is a service available on the computer, through which everything under the sun is now at the fingertips of anyone who has access to the Internet.
The Internet provides opportunities, and can be used for a variety of things. E-mail is an online mail system, through which you can send and receive messages instantly(立刻地) to people anywhere in the world, unlike traditional mails that take a lot of time. Any kind of information on any topic is available on the Internet. The ‘search engines’ on the Internet can help you to find data on any subject that you need. There are also many ‘chat rooms’ on the web that can be accessed to make new friends, as well as to stay in touch with old friends.
Finally, you can download games, music, videos, movies, and a host of other entertainment software from the Internet, most of which are free.
However, there are certain dangers related to the use of the Internet. Firstly, if you use the Internet, your personal information can be accessed by other people. If you use a credit card to shop online, then your credit card information can also be ‘stolen’. Secondly, there are thousands of sites containing unfit information for children that can be easily found. Lastly, you may receive many mails, which serve no purpose and unnecessarily slow the entire system.
Such shortcomings are frustrating(令人懊恼的) for all Internet users, and we should keep an eye on them and make an effort to stop them. As a whole, the advantages of the Internet far outweigh(比……更重要) the disadvantages, and we can use it not only for work but for pleasure.

One possible version:
In my memory, what impressed me most was the scene that a young man kicked an old lady who was begging when I was about 12 years old.
It happened in a bus station when I was waiting for the bus with my friend. The old lady in her rags was begging after the passengers. But when she came to a well-dressed young man, he refused her rudely. I heard the old lady said something, and then the young man came up to her and pushed her down to the ground, kicking her madly. Many people came to stop him, but they failed. Then I heard someone nearby said, “Young man, you will be old one day!” He then stopped and went away without making an apology to the old lady.
Young as I was, I became angry with the young man. I thought the young should show respect for the old, and we should help them when they were in trouble.
