During his life Dr James Naismith worked as a doctor, taught P.E and wrote several books. While he never thought it very important, Dr Naismith is today best known for one thing. He was the inventor of basketball.
Dr James Naismith was born in Canada in 1861 and his first job was at a special sports school in the USA. One day the school principal told James he was having a problem with the students. Because of heavy snow, the students could not go outside. He told James that they needed a sport the boys could play indoors and gave the teacher two weeks to think of something.
It was on the very last day that James came up with his idea. The “birth of basketball” is said to be on December 21, 1891, when two teams from the school played the first game. It was quite different from the basketball games of today. It had 9 players on each team and footballs were used instead of basketballs. Soon after, the game changed to 5 players on each side, using special “basketballs” through nets.
Although Dr Naismith did not live to see basketball become the worldwide game it is today, in 1936, just three years before his death, basketball became an Olympic sport at the Games in Berlin.
36. Which of the following things did Dr James Naismith NOT do?
A. Teach P.E in school. B. Write some books.
C. Work at a hospital. D. Take part in the Olympic Games.
37. In which season did Dr Naismith invent basketball?
A. Summer. B. Winter. C. Spring. D. Autumn.
38. Why is December 21 thought to be the birthday of basketball?
A. It was on this day that Dr Naismith came up with his idea for basketball.
B. It was the day on which Dr Naismith was born.
C. It was the day on which Dr Naismith was asked by his boss to invent a new game.
D. It was on this day that the first game of basketball was played.
39. At the time of Dr Naismith’s death, which of the following was true?
A. Basketball was already a worldwide game.
B. Basketball was played with 9 players on each side.
C. Basketball was an Olympic sport.
D. Basketball was still played using footballs.
American teenagers hear it all the time from their parents，“Are you listening to me? Turn down that music or you’ll hurt your ears.” A new study has found the parents may be right.
The study has found that many young people in the United States do not hear as well as they used to. One out of five American teenagers have some hearing loss. That is a 30% increase in the past fifteen years. One out of twenty teens have a large hearing loss. That is a fifty percent increase.
The researchers used results of hearing tests taken in the past years. They have found that boys are more likely to have hearing problems than girls. The age or race of the teens who were tested had no effect on their chances of a hearing loss. The researchers say they are not sure why some teenagers are losing their hearing. Not enough studies have been done and more are needed. Some say the causes may be found in their diet，exposure to poisons，or in their genes. Others believe that listening to loud music on MP3 players with earphones is the major cause.
Researchers think that some teenagers do not realize that they are listening to music at very loud levels. Researchers suggest parents stand next to their children while they are wearing earphones. If the parents can hear the music，the sound is too loud. Teenagers should set the volume control on their music players to somewhere between onehalf and twothirds the highest level，never louder.
Even a small hearing loss can affect a child’ s social development. Communication skills and grades in school can also suffer. Doctor Eavey says，“What we’re seeing is a big jump in the prevalence (患病率) of hearing loss in a very short time，in less than one generation.”
40.What is the main idea of this passage?
A.Modern technology harms people’s health.
B.Many American teenagers have some hearing loss.
C.American teenagers are suffering from ear diseases.
D.American parents notice the harm of listening to music.
41.Researchers suggest that parents________.
A.pay more attention to their children’ s diets
B.not let their children listen to music for a long time
C.help their children set the volume control to the proper level
D.keep a close eye on what kind of music their children listen to
42.The last paragraph suggests that hearing loss________.
A.has attracted worldwide attention
B.will be well prevented in the future
C.has worried most parents in America
D.may not be good for one’s future development

She does not want me in the school any longer . The trouble started last night when I was smoking a cigarette in bed . As I was smoking , I heard footsteps coming towards the room .I did not want a teacher to catch me smoking , so I threw the cigarette away .
Unfortunately , the cigarette fell into the waste--paper basket . It caught fire .
There was a curtain near the waste --paper basket . It caught fire too . Soon the whole room was burning . The master phoned the fire brigade . The school is a long way from the town and before the fire brigade arrived , the whole school was on fire . The master said that the fire was all my fault and I must pay for the damage . She will send you a bill for about a million dollars .

The role of music
Music plays an important role in our life. First，it can make us feel relaxed both mentally and physically，thus helping reduce our pressure at work and in life. Second，music can excite and encourage us as well whenever we meet troubles and feel sad. What’s more，music can have a comforting effect when we’re worried and help us step out of difficulty. In addition，music，as a universal language，can be of great help on the way to learning another culture.
