We don’t plan to cry, but it just h *** ens. In fact, when we feel sad or angry, we may possibly h *** e a good cry. But if you didn’t know what crying was, you’d h *** e to wonder why some strong feelings started water falling down from people’s eyes and why they seemed to feel better after that.
Now, a US research has found there may be more in crying than we think. William H. Frey II believes it may really be one of the body’s clever self-repair system. Crying may be a way of getting rid of stress, he says. He has found that in the tears there are some chemicals which can make people stressed. One of these is the hormone which is set free when one is feeling stressed. Since women h *** e more of this than men, that might explain why women usually cry more, he says.[中国#教^@ Unsurprisingly, Dr Frey’s study seems to show that most people feel better after a good cry, no matter whether you are a man or a woman. So next time when you feel like bursting into tears, go ahead. If Dr Fred is right, you will help yourself a lot.

D.some chemicals in our tears can cause stress
43. The writer advises us if we feel like crying.

Once upon a time, an old woman had two large water pots. Each hung on the end of a pole(杆子)which she carried across her neck.

One day by the river the cracked pot said to the woman, 'I feel bad about myself, because the crack in me causes water to come out all the way back to your house.”
The old woman *** iled and said, 'Why are there flowers on your side of the road, but not on the other pot‘s side? That‘s because I h *** e always known about your crack.

H *** e you ever had an embarrassing(尴尬的)experience? Last week we asked readers to tell us about embarrassing experiences. We received thousands of letters! Here is a selection.
My most embarrassing experience h *** ened when I had just left university. I had just started teaching in a Liverpool secondary school. One morning my alarm clock didn‘t ring. I woke up at half past eight and school began at nine. I quickly washed, dressed, jumped into my car and rushed to school. When I arrived, the students had already gone into class. I didn‘t go to the office, but went straight into class. After two or three minutes the students began laughing, and I couldn‘t understand why! Suddenly I looked down and understood. I had put on one black shoe and one brown shoe!
The most embarrassing experience I‘ve ever had, h *** ened two years ago. After seeing a film, my wife and I had lunch in our f *** ourite restaurant in town. Then we decided to take a walk along the street. The street was very busy and we started holding hands. Suddenly my wife saw a dress that she liked in a shop window, and stopped. I started looking at some watches in the next window. After a minute or two I reached for my wife‘s hand. There was a loud scream, and a woman sl *** ed my face. I hadn‘t taken my wife‘s hand. I‘d taken the hand of a complete stranger!
My wife and I had decided to buy a new house, and I‘d made an *** ointment to see our bank manager. I‘d never met him before. I went into town in my car and I was lucky enough to find a parking space outside the bank. I‘d just started reversing(倒车) into the space when another car made its way into it. I was irritated! I opened my window and shouted at the man in the car. He ignored me and walked away. It took me twenty minutes to find another place. As soon as I had parked the car, I rushed back to the bank. I was ten minutes late for my *** ointment. I went to the manager‘s office, knocked and walked in. The manager was sitting behind his desk. He was the man who had taken my parking space!
29. The students began laughing when they saw Tony_______.
A. wearing a wrong shoe B. carrying an alarm clock

Roosegaarde, an artist and designer from Dutch has thought of a device(装置). He hopes it will make Beijing‘s sky clear again and help the people with masks breathe fresh air again in Beijing.
An electromagnetic field(电磁场) will pull the dirty particles in the air to the ground, and then they can be easily cleaned.
Roosegaarde says, 'It‘s like when you h *** e a balloon which has static electricity(静电) and your hair goes toward it. Smog h *** ens the same way as the hair.'
His workplace has reached an agreement with the Beijing government to test the technology in one of the capital‘s parks. Beijing‘s skies are regularly covered by grey *** og. Serious cases of air pollution are often reported in Beijing. Roosegaarde says an indoor test has already shown it works well and he is confident of the results. With the help of a team of scientists and engineers, he is sure that the device can be worked outside.
'Beijing is a very good place to test the device because the *** og in Beijing is quite low and there‘s not so much wind.' says Roosegaarde. 'We‘ll be able to make the air pure but the most difficult thing is to remove the *** og. As a result, you can see the sun again.'
Roosegaarde also reminds us that his aim is not only to give a plan to solve Beijing‘s dirty air pollution but also to make people pay attention to the environment problem. He adds, 'This is not the real answer for *** og. The real answer to do with it is clean cars, different industry and different lifestyles. ' However, he hopes the project will make the citizens realize the differences between clean air and *** og-filled air.
33. The device works by_______.
A helping keep the particles out with more masks
B. pulling particles to the ground with an electromagnetic field
C. absorbing hair with a balloon with static
D. creating clean air and letting it out into the sky
34. What does Roosegaarde use his device for?
A To make *** og. B. To make the air clean
C. To make static electricity. D. To make Beijing‘s parks beautiful.
35. After reading the passage, we can know_______.
A the device doesn‘t work well indoors
B. the people with masks can breathe fresher air
C. Beijing government agreed to test the device
D. clean cars aren‘t helpful to the environment in Beijing
36. Roosegaarde hopes people in Beijing can_______.
A pay attention to air pollution and solve the problem finally
B. invent more devices to clean the *** og in Beijing
C. drive modern cars and try different lifestyles
D. realize how serious the pollution they‘re facing is
According to scientists‘ research, the month in which babies are born could affect them in some ways.
Babies born in spring get sick easily. Children born under Aquarius may be less clever than those born in other seasons. They may also h *** e shorter lives than those born in autumn Scientists believe many of the differences can be explained by the mother‘s exposure to sunlight in pregnancy( *** ). Sunlight helps lead to the production of Vitamin D in the body. The lack of this in the first months of life may h *** e a bad effect on mental and physical health.
Vitamin D, called the 'sunshine vitamin', is known to help regulate(调节) thousands of genes during development, according to a study of more than two million people. So Vitamin D has a good effect on health This study showed that people born from April to June had slightly shorter lives than those born in October, November or December. Similar studies in the USA showed that people born in autumn lived about 160 days longer than those born in spring.
Professor Russell Foster, an Oxford University neuroscientist on seasonal biology, said the conclusions were surprising and interesting. He added, 'These are *** all effects but they are very, very clear. I am not giving voice to star signs and they are just for fun. But it is true that we are affected by our season of birth.'
37.A baby‘s season of birth doesn‘t affect its_______.
A health B height C length of life D. mind
38. According to the passage,_______ can help people get Vitamin D.
A. enough sleep B. enough sunlight
C fresh air D. suitable seasons
39. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. People born in spring may not be in good health.
B. Children born under Aquarius are cleverer than those born under Libra.
C. Professor Russell Foster is interested in star signs and believes in them
D. People born in May will live longer than those born in October.
40. What does the passage mainly tell us?
A. People can know the length of life by star sign.
B. Women should choose to give birth to children in spring.
C A child‘s season of birth has some effect on him or her.
D. Vitamin D is very important to people‘s health.

In order to keep a good relationship with my parents, I study hard, listen to them, talk to them as friends, tell them my troubles, and help them do more housework.

When Vivienne Harr was 8 years old, she saw a photo she would never forget. It was a photo of two young boys carrying large, he *** y rocks on their backs. These children were the same age as Vivienne. But they did not h *** e the same freedom and opportunities (自由和机会) that she has.
In some parts of the world, children h *** e to work hard long days and they can’t go to school. Vivienne wanted to change this. “I want all kids to be able to go to school and play,” said Vivienne, now 10. “I want them to be h *** y.”
To help raise money for children like the two boys in the photo, Vivienne started a lemonade stand (柠檬汽水摊位) near her home in Marin County, California. She promised to work every day for a year, rain or shine. “Sometimes, it was hard for me, when the weather was bad or I wasn’t feeling well,” said Vivienne. “But I knew that some children were h *** ing a harder time than I was.”
Vivienne’s goal (目标) was to raise $100,000 in 365 days. On Day 175, she reached her goal. But that didn’t stop Vivienne from working. With the help of her family, she started Make a Stand. The company (公司) now puts Vivienne’s lemonade into bottles (瓶子) and sells it in 130 stores around the USA. A *** all part of sales goes to help achieve Vivienne’s dream — to make the world a better place for all children.

H *** e you ever tried to write a poem (诗歌)? It’s easier than you might think. Just pick up a pen and begin practicing. Here are the steps to write a poem.
Choose your topic. (11)__________ Some people can start writing poems without really deciding what to write about; when their pen or pencil hits the paper the words just flow (畅流). Most people, on the other hand, need a topic and as a beginner, this is the best way to start. It’s easier to write a good poem about something you know well or you h *** e experienced.
Freewrite for five minutes about your topic. Then go back and read it. Are any words or phrases (短语) especially good? (12)__________ For example, if you are describing something (i.e. a bird), write down descriptive words about it (i.e. looks, colors), and the type of story you would like to tell about (i.e. the bird fell out of a tree). If you are writing about an event in your life, write down your feelings and thoughts (想法) of that event.
Write your poem. Remember, a poem doesn’t h *** e to rhyme (押韵). (13)__________ But it should show your feelings of the topic. And it should sound nice to you.
H *** e a friend read your poem aloud to you. (14)__________ If not, go back and rewrite the parts you don’t like.
(15)__________ Read it to others. Say it aloud to yourself. Put it somewhere if you want.
A. Do you like the way it sounds?
B. Mark them and use them in your poem.
C. Enjoy your poem.
D. What would you like your poem to be about?
E. It doesn’t h *** e to use sentences, either.
