It was Mother’s Day. John was so busy with his work that he couldn’t go back home. When he passed by a flower shop in the evening, an idea came to his mind. “I’ll send Mum some roses (玫瑰).”
While John was picking his flowers, a young man went inside. “How many roses can I get for only five dollars, Madam?” he asked. The salesgirl told him roses were as expensive as forty dollars a dozen (一打). Maybe he would be happy with carnations(康乃馨). She told him they were much cheaper than roses.
“No, I have to have red roses,” he said, “My mum was badly ill last year and I didn’t spend much time with her. Now I want to get something special. It has to be roses. Roses are her favorite.”
After hearing this, John said he would pay the rest of the money for the young man. Moved by both of them, the salesgirl said, “Well, lovely young men, thirty dollars a dozen, only for you two.” Taking the roses, the young man jumped with joy. He thanked John, and ran out of the shop. It was well worth twenty-five dollars John paid to see the exciting moment. Then John paid for his dozen of roses and told the salesgirl to send them to his mother.
As he walked out, he felt nice. Suddenly he saw the young man crossing the street and going into a park. But soon he realized it was not a park but a cemetery(墓地). Crying, the young man carefully laid the roses, “Mum, oh, Mum, why didn’t I tell you how much I loved you? God, please help me find my mum and tell her I love her.”

Americans use many expressions with the word dog.
People in the United States love their dogs and treat them well. They take their dogs for walks, let them play outside and give them good food and medical care. However, dogs without owners to care for them lead a different kind of life. The expression, to lead a dog's life, describes a person who has an unhappy existence.
Some people say we live in a dog-eat-dog world. That means many people are competing for the same things, like good jobs. They say that to be successful, a person has to work like a dog. This means they have to work very, very hard. Such hard work can make people dog-tired. And, the situation would be even worse if they became sick as a dog. Still, people say every dog has its day. This means that every person enjoys a successful period during his or her life. To be successful, people often have to learn new skills. Yet, some people say that you can never teach an old dog new tricks. They believe that older people do not like to learn new things and will not change the way they do things.
A junkyard is not a fun place for a dog. Many dogs in the United States sleep in safe little houses near their owners’ home. These doghouses provide shelter. Yet they can be cold and lonely in inter. Husbands and wives use this doghouse term when they are angry at each other. For example, a woman might get angry at her husband for coming home late or forgetting their wedding anniversary. She might tell him that he is in the doghouse. She may not treat him nicely until he apologizes. However, the husband may decide that it is best to leave things alone and not create more problems. He might decide to let sleeping dogs lie.
Dog expressions also are used to describe the weather. The dog days of summer are the hottest days of the year. A rainstorm may cool the weather. But we do not want it to rain too hard. We do not want it to rain cats and dogs.

We often find that weekends and holidays feel so short while classes and work feel so long. Actually, though, we know that this is not true.But we still wonder where that strange feeling comes from.In fact, this is one of the ways that we,re tricked by time, according to the website All That Is Interesting.The website lists several wrong impressions we often have about time.Let's have a look. First of all, emotions affect our time-keeping abilities: Negative emotions, especially anxiety and boredom, make time seem longer because they make us concentrate more on the passage of time .However, when we are enjoying ourselves, we pay more attention to what we are doing and are likely to lose track of(失去对...的意识)time.
Here is another example. In 2007, a group of scientists carried out a test. In the test, people fell 50 meters into a safety net and were then asked about their experience. Although the experience took shorter than 3 seconds, the people thought it was much longer than it actually was.
This is because of the way our bodies reply to danger, according to the scientists. Our bodies produce a chemical called adrenaline (肾上腺素) when we are faced with danger. It allows us to concentrate better so that we can stay alive. As a result, we are able to remember far more details(细节)over a short period of time, which makes it seem like time is going more slowly.
Another situation when we make mistakes about time is when we take afternoon naps(午觉). Have you ever had trouble telling what time it is after a long nap? That's because the best amount of time for a nap is 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, you enter a new stage of sleep called slow-wave sleep. If you wake up mid-way in this stage, it will take a while before you can correctly perceive(感知) time again.Yes, time can be mysterious and there is no way to control it So, perhaps the best thing to do is to make good use of every minute.
66.According to the passage, what possibly makes people feel so long?
A.weekends and holidays B.weekends and work. C.classes and work D.holidays and work
67.Which will not affect our time-keeping abilities according to the website listing?
A.negative emotions B.positive emotions C.adrenaline D.scientists
68.According to the passage, in which situation don’t we make mistakes about time?
A.We wake up after a long nap.
B.We fall down from a high place.
C. We have many problems left in the test paper, but the time is up
D.We go to school on the school bus as usual on weekdays
69.According to the passage, what will NOT happen when we are faced with danger?
A.Our bodies will produce a chemical called adrenaline.
B.We are able to feel that time seems to go more slowly.
C.Adrenaline will make us concentrate better to stay alive.
D.We will forget far more details over a short period of time.
70.Which of the following statements is NOT true according to the passage?
A.Negative emotions make time seem longer
B.We feel like time is going more slowly while having fun.
C.Time can be mysterious and there is no way to control it.
D.If we wake up mid-way after a long nap, maybe we can't correctly perceive time again soon.
planning and testing several prize programs. “Luckily, the scientific method allows us to examine most of those biases and let the data do the talking. ” In the cash programs being studied, Roland Fryer and other economists compare the school performance of groups of students who are paid and students who are not. In the study, they find that the students who are prized get higher grades on the SAT and go to better colleges than those who are
However, many psychologists believe that early data can be onesided. Research suggests that prizes may
work in the short term but have bad influences in the long term.
“Are they highly interested in what they are doing? Or does it feel like hard work? The same prize program might have different influences on different kinds of students，” said Kirabo Jackson, a famous psychologist at
Cornell University. “The higher the prize is, the more harmful the result might be. ”

Less Pressure, Better Life
Hello, boys and girls!
Pressure is becoming a serious problem in today’s world. Students in my class are under too much pressure.Some students can’t get on well with their classmates, others may worry about their exams.
I am always under pressures,too.My parents want me to be the top students in class. So they send me to all kinds of after-school classes on weekends. Last Monday evening, I had a talk with my mother. I told her I was not lazy . I really felt tired. I needed time to relax and I was able to manage myself,I really knew what I must do.My mother agreed with me at last.So I think a conversation with parents is necessary to solve the problem.
That’s all. Thank you!
