It was an early morning in summer. In the streets, sleepy-eyed people were moving quickly, heading towards their 21 . This was the beginning of another 22 day in New York City. 23 this day was to be different.
Waiting 24 the crowded streets, on top of a 25 110 stories high, was Philippe Pettit. This daring Frenchman was about to 26 a tightrope (绷索) between the two towers of the World Trade Center.
Philippe took his first 27 with great care. The wire held. Now he was 28 he could do it. 29 only a balancing Polar, Philippe walked his way across, a 30 of 131 feet.
Soon the rush-hour 31 began to notice. What a 32 ! There, 1350 feet above the street, a 33 figure was walking on air.
Philippe made seven 34 , back and forth (来回). He wasn"t satisfied with just 35 . At times, he would turn, sit down, and 36 go on his knees. Once, he had the astonishing 37 to lie down on the thin thread. And thousands of 38 watchers stared with their hearts beating fast.

We often hear people say, “I have a good memory for things like that” or “I can never remember names”. But do you know memory is the single most important thing and it has played a very important part?
For early men, there were dangers all around them — bad weather, wild animals. The keys to keep on living lay in man’s ability to remember these dangers and the ways he had dealt with them in the past. In order for memories to be stored, the human brain became more complex. And as man learned how to deal with them, he became civilized (文明).
Surprisingly, scientists today understand little about memory and how it works. They have not yet found a way to open up the brain and observe its function without destroying it. Perhaps there are two types of memory — short-term and long-term. Short-term refers to those facts that stay with us for a few seconds to a few hours. For instance, when you stay at a hotel, you remember the room number and forget it as soon as you leave. Long-term memory, on the other hand, means you remember things for a long period of time. If you spend your honeymoon in a particular hotel, it’s likely that you’ll remember your stay quite clearly.
Scientists also believe that a short-term memory can become a long-term memory through consolidation (巩固). A lot of chemical and physical changes take place in the part of the brain. Although the human brain weighs three pounds, it contains 30 billion nerve cells (神经细胞) acting like a computer. When those changes strengthen the links (联系) in certain nerve cells, a thought becomes a part of the long-term memory.

A. no modern worldB.no recorded history C. no animalsD. no dangers

A. interestingB. not enoughC. great D. encouraging
43. Short-term memory can change into long-term memory on condition that ______.

C. people do more exercise D the links in nerve cells are strengthened by certain changes
44. So far the great discovery scientists have made about the function of brain is ______.
A. the weight of brainB. two types of memory
C.30 billion nerve cellsD.chemical and physical changes
45. Which of the following is TRUE?
A. The heavier the brain is, the better memory it has.
B. Scientists can open the brain without destroying it.
C. Memory is very important for early men.
D. Early men’s memory was better because they could remember a lot of things.
