We’ve all had cases where we’ve waited just a bit too long to pay an electric bill or speeding ticket. But one man, from California by reasonable assumption, who goes by “Dave”, recently took procrastination (拖延) one step further, by paying a parking ticket almost a half-century after it was given.
In December 2018, the Minersville Police Department in Pennsylvania received a letter in the mail. Whoever wrote the letter decided it was best to keep his name somewhat unknown, so he put the return address as “Wayward Road, Anytown California” under the name “Feeling guilty”.
When the officers opened the envelope, they found a brief letter, along with a $5 bill, and a parking ticket dating all the way back to 1974. The note read, “Dear PD, I’ve been carrying this ticket around for 40 plus years always intending to pay. Forgive me if I don’t give you my info. With respect, Dave.”
Even though the initial parking ticket was only for $2, “Dave” must have felt awfully guilty because he left 150 percent, or $3, in interest.
Michael Combs, the Police Chief of the Minersville Police Department, stated in an interview that the same ticket would cost about $20 if it were given today. Combs went on to share that the original ticket from 1974 was given to a vehicle that had an Ohio license plate.
Because there was no system for tracking tickets given to out-of-state cars back then, “Dave” could have gotten away with never paying the $2 fine. But apparently, guilt got the best of him, and he decided to finally cough up the money more than 40 years past its due date.
24. How much do we know about “Dave”?
A. He lives in Wayward Road, Anytown California.
B. The police are trying to find out more about him.
C. His car probably came from Ohio at that time.
D. “Dave” is of course the man’s real name indeed.
25. Why didn’t “Dave” pay for the parking ticket until recently?
A. He completely forgot about it in the past 44 years.
B. He didn’t find it until almost half a century later.
C. He failed to find out who he should pay the money to.
D. He didn’t pay for it just because of procrastination.
26. What drove “Dave” to pay for the parking ticket at last?
A. A strong sense of guilt.
B. Fear of being tracked by the police.
C. Worry about being fined more.
D. Sudden change of his financial situation.
27. Which of the following can be the best title?
A. Police Chief of the Minersville Police Department Shares a Story
B. Mysterious Procrastinator Finally Pays 44-Year-Old Parking Ticket
C. Unusual Letter Comes from Wayward Road, Anytown California
D. Parking Ticket Carried Around for Almost Half a Century from Ohio
“Birds” and “airports” are two words that, paired together, don’t normally paint the most harmonious picture. So it really raises some eyebrows when China announces plans to build an airport that is for birds.
Described as the world’s first-ever bird airport, the proposed Lingang Bird Sanctuary(保护区) in the northern coastal city of Tianjin is, of course,not an actual airport. Rather, it’s a wetland preserve specifically designed to accommodate hundreds-even thousands-of daily takeoffs and landings by birds traveling along the East Asian-Australasian Flyway. Over 50 species of migratory(迁徙的) water birds，some endangered, will stop and feed at the protected sanctuary before continuing their long journey along the flyway.
Located on a former landfill site, the 150-acre airport is also open to human travelers.(Half a million visitors are expected annually.) However, instead of duty-free shopping, the main attraction for non-egg-laying creatures at Tianjin’s newest airport will be a green-roofed education and research center, a series of raised “observation platforms” and a network of scenic walking and cycling paths totaling over 4 miles.
“The proposed Bird Airport will be a globally significant sanctuary for endangered migratory bird species, while providing new green lungs for the city of Tianjin.” Adrian McGregor of an Australian landscape architecture firm explained of the design. Frequently blanketed in smog so thick that it has shut down real airports, Tianjin is a city--China’s fourth most populous--that would certainly benefit from a new pair of healthy green lungs.
28. The underlined phrase “non-egg-laying creatures” in Paragraph 3 refers to?
A. Designers. B. Visitors. C. Endangered water birds. D. Planes.
29. What do we know about the airport according to the passage?
A. It functions as an actual airport and a wetland preserve.
B. It is located on a 150-acre landfill site.
C. It provides migratory birds with food and shelter.
D. People cannot watch birds up close here.
30. What can we infer from the last paragraph?
A. Tianjin’s air quality will improve thanks to the airport.
B. Tianjin will win worldwide fame in the future.
C. The airport will become a permanent home for birds.
D. Tianjin will be able to accommodate more people.
31. What is this passage mainly about?
A. Airports shut down and open up. B. Airports turn into green lungs.
C. China is to open the first Bird Airport. D. Birds are no longer enemies to airports.
Brriiinnng. The alarm clock announces the start of another busy weekday in the morning. You jump out of bed, rush into the shower, into your clothes and out the door with hardly a moment to think. A stressful journey to work gets your blood pressure climbing. Once at the office, you glance through the newspaper with depressing stories or reports of disasters. In that sort of mood, who can get down to work, particularly some creative, original problem-solving work?
The way most of us spend our mornings is exactly opposite to the conditions that promote flexible, open-minded thinking. Imaginative ideas are most likely to come to us when we’re unfocused. If you are one of those energetic morning people, your most inventive time comes in the early evening when your are relaxed. Sleepy people’s lack of focus leads to an increase in creative problem solving. By not giving yourself time to tune into your wandering mind, you’re missing out on the surprising solutions it may offer.
The trip you take to work doesn’t help, either. The stress slows down the speed with which signals travel between neurons(神经细胞), making inspirations less likely to occur. And while we all should read a lot about what’s going on in the world, it would not make you feel good for sure, so put that news website or newspaper aside until after the day’s work is done.
So what would our mornings look like if we wanted to start them with a full capacity for creative problem solving? We’d set the alarm a few minutes early and lie awake in bed, following our thoughts where they lead. We’d stand a little longer under the warm water of the shower, stopping thinking about tasks in favor of a few more minutes of relaxation. We’d take some deep breaths on our way to work, instead of complaining about heavy traffic. And once in the office --we’d click on links not to the news of the day but to the funniest videos the web has to offer.
32. According to the author, we are more creative when we are ____________.
A. focused B. relaxed C. awake D. busy
33. What does the author imply about newspapers?
A. They are solution providers.
B. They are a source of inspiration.
C. They are normally full of bad news.
D. They are more educational than websites.
34. By “tune into your wandering mind” (in Para. 2), the author means “____________”.
A. wander into the wild
B. listen to a beautiful tune
C. switch to the traffic channel
D. stop concentrating on anything
35. What does the author intend to do in the last paragraph?
A. To offer practical suggestions.
B. To summarize past experiences.
C. To advocate diverse ways of life.
D. To set up a routine for the future.
If something that you’re doing doesn’t challenge you, then it doesn’t change you. We all need some normal stress in our lives, after all. 36 So challenge the following limits:
1. Figure out what you’re scared of and do it continuously.
If you’re a salesman, and you’re scared of talking to people personally or over the phone now, instead of being scared and thinking you’ll fail, spend at least five minutes a day to pick up the phone and make a call. 37 But don’t stop on the first try! Eventually, you can look at fear in the eye and say, “Go on. I’m not scared!”
2. Take a class for a hobby you’ve been wanting to develop
Make sure this hobby is not linked to your career; you have to relax and relieve your stress while performing this. 38 Apart from helping you challenge yourself, taking a class for your hobby may also give you extra income.
3. Set aside at least nine minutes a day for physical exercise.
39 A simple 9-minute run around your neighborhood can do wonders for yourself. Exercise can not only help you maintain your regular weight, but also make you feel better about yourself.
4. Travel and allow yourself to be interested in new people.
Don’t just limit yourself to your fellow travelers—try to connect with the service staff. You never know what kind of people they’re going to be. Get out of your house or go online right now to book your class. 40
A. You should do it continuously.
B. Someone may hang up on you.
C. You don’t need to go to the gym.
D. Running in the gym may be a better choice.
E. Start to travel now and learn to challenge yourself.
F. Some examples might be cooking, sewing, painting and so on.
G. You can never see any improvement if you stick to your comfort zone.
A Game of Light and Shade
It was a sunny day. I had gone up and down the tower when, outside the door at the foot, a blind man came toward me. In a moment, he disappeared up the stairs. I looked at the sign that said “To the Tower”, and decided to 41 him.
I caught up with him in the ticket office. There I was 42 to see the attendant (工作人员) selling him a ticket as if he were any other visitor. Then, with the ticket in one hand and 43 the wall with the fingers of the other, the blind man reached the stairs 44 to the hallway.
“That man is blind. What would a blind man climb up the tower for?” I said to the attendant, expecting him to show some 45 , but he didn’t answer.
“Not the 46 certainly,” I said. “Perhaps he wants to 47 .”
I bought a ticket and 48 up the stairs. The man hadn’t gone as far as I 49 . A third of the way up the tower, I heard his 50 . I slowed down and followed him at a little 51 . He stopped from time to time. When he got to the balcony, I was a dozen steps 52 . As I reached it, I saw him at the corner of the tower.
At last, after ten minutes, I 53 him. “Excuse me,” I said as politely as I could, “but I am curious to know 54 you came up.”
He smiled. “Coming up the stairs, you will notice how not just light but sun 55 into the tower through the narrow windows here and there, so that you can feel the 56 —the cool stairs suddenly become quite warm—and how up here behind the wall there is 57 , but as soon as going opposite a window you can find the sun. There is no 58 so good as this for feeling the difference between light and shade. It is not the first time I’ve come up.”
The blind man seemed quite 59 just like a child who was enjoying his favorite games. He told me the truth that blind men can also find the beauty in life 60 they cannot enjoy the sights of the world.

When scholars of international relations predict that the 21st century will be a “Chinese century”, they are full of reasons. 61 America remains the only superpower, China is responsible for an important share of global change. Since 62 start of the financial crisis in 2008, for example, China has accounted 63 45% of the gain in world GDP. In 1990 about 750 million Chinese people lived in extreme poverty; today fewer than 10 million do. Its GDP per person, in terms of purchasing-power, 64 (rise) ten times since 1990.
China’s amazing 65 (perform) has greatly affected the world’s economic output. The Economist has worked out a geographic center of the global economy by 66 (take) an average of each country’s latitude and longitude(经纬度), 67 (measure) by its GDP. At the height of America’s control, this point 68 (previous) sat in the north Atlantic. But China has pulled it so far east 69 the global center of economic gravity 70 (be) now in Siberia.
Dear Ms Smith,
I’m writing to ask whether you could do me favor. I’ve just finished an essay naming “Differences between traditional Chinese and Western festivals”, so I’m not sure whether it is well written. To be honestly, I’m not that familiar with some traditional Western festivals. That’s because I’m turning to you for help. I’d appreciate it if you could spare some time to look into my essay for possible mistakes and polish them. Also, I’m looking forward to your valuable advices. My essay has been sending to you along with this email. I hope it won’t cause you too much more trouble.
Thank you in advance. Yours sincerely,

I’m glad to know that you’ll take part in the “Studying in China” speech contest. I’d like to give you some practical suggestions.
I recommend that you talk about the courses on Chinese traditional culture you’ve attended. The major reason is that they introduce the real treasure in human history. Besides, since you’ve taken the courses systematically, you’re sure to have a deep understanding of them. To do it well, I think you should choose impressive examples to gain the recognition of the judges. Moreover, you have to practice your spoken Chinese to express yourself more clearly and fluently. Speaking skills are also needed, for they can help maximize the effectiveness of your speech.
I really hope my advice will be helpful. Wish you a great success.
W: It’s such a large park.
M: Yeah, it’s the largest park in the city. And it was rebuilt last year.
W: Where shall we buy the tickets to get in?
M: Oh, over there.
M: How was your weekend, Nancy?
W: Not too good. I was about to leave for a trip on Saturday morning, when I found my kitchen was ruined by the dirty water from the apartment above mine. I spent the whole weekend cleaning.
M: Oh, that’s terrible.
W: Tell me about yourself.
M: Well, I currently work in the sales department in a bank. My previous job was at the post office. Before that, I was a part-time sales assistant at Macy’s Department Store.
W: Now everybody, attention please. Don’t forget to write down your name and school number.
M: How long do we have?
W: 90 minutes. If you finish the paper earlier, you can leave the room.
W: Excuse me, can you tell me where the classical music department is?
M: Sure. It’s down that walkway and to the left. Can I help you find something?
W: Yes. I’m looking for the latest CD by Adam Lambert. I want to buy it for my daughter.
M: Loretta, I saw you on the news last night! That was really exciting!
W: Thank you. I had a lot of fun.
M: So, you won a contest, and you received your prize on the news at eight o’clock?
W: Kind of. I won a music competition. The prize was a trip to the television station. Then I got to perform the song I wrote. What did you think of the song?
M: I thought it was absolutely beautiful, but I didn’t know you wrote it. I thought it was written by a professional singer. Very impressive, Loretta! Do you have plans to be a singer?
W: I will just keep singing and see what happens. Even if I never become famous, this is what I love to do every hour of every day.
M: That is very admirable.
M: Ah, Jenny, cou1d I just have a quick word with you?
W: Er, yes. No problem I hope.
M: Well, actually there is. I’ve just had a complaint from a customer. He said you were rude to him on the Phone.
W: What? Me? Who said that?
M: Well, I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear it was Mr. Butler.
W: Oh, him. He’s always really horrible.
M: Yes, I know how hard it is to deal with him.
W: And now he’s complained about me! I’ve always done my best to help him.
M: I know. Look, next time he rings, just put him straight on to me.
W: Do you have any other hobbies besides stamp collecting?
M: Yes, fishing. I go fishing twice a week.
W: That’s very popular, too. Every time I pass the lake, I see any people sitting there with fishing rods in their hands, but I’ve never seen anyone catch anything.
M: Maybe it’s because you lack patience.
W: Maybe you’re right. I went fishing once. I sat still about four hours and got nothing. I broke my rod and decided not to fish any more.
M: Oh, you didn’t have to do that. Look at that man. There must be a huge fish on the end of the line. Let’s go over and have a look.
W: OK. Wow, what a big fish!
M: So it is interesting to fish with a rod sitting at the lake. Say, what do you often do in your spare time?
W: Oh, nothing special. I read, watch TV and go to the movies.
M: Don’t you have any hobbies, like stamp collecting or things like that?
W: No, I don’t have any hobbies like that.
W: Karl, you live in a lonely village, don’t you?
M: Ah, not as much as it used to be. My village is on the east coast of Greenland. Boats from Denmark
bring us supplies. And air transport is now the most important method to and from Greenland, and within the island too, as we hardly have any roads.
W: Mmm. Maybe you’ve got the Internet to help you keep in touch?
M: We certainly have. Greenland has moved into the digital age and many people in my village go to an office. They sit at a desk using a computer to do business worldwide. In the old days, people’s work meant fishing in a boat. The modern lifestyle is easier but a lot less exciting.
W: Mmm, you sound a little regretful.
M: In some ways, maybe I am. Our grandparents had amazing skills. They used every piece of skin, fat and bone to make all the things they needed, like clothes, fuel and tools by hand. My grandpa used to hunt with a gun. He often told me the tales of danger and excitement. They attracted me more than the Internet games.
M: Good morning! I’m Samuel Davis, and this is the ten o’ clock news report. I hope everyone is having a fine Monday morning. It’s getting pretty wet out there, so grab an umbrella and stay dry! I’m here today with Matt Miller, who has completed his 29,000-mile journey in just six weeks, with a total of 180 hours in flight. Beginning in California, he made twenty-five stops in fourteen different countries including England, Italy, Greece, Egypt, and Thailand. His final trip was a sixteen-hour flight from Hawaii back to California, just half an hour less than his longest flight from Samoa to Hawaii. Born in South Dakota, Matt is a freshman at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and has said that as a child he was scared of f1ying. All of that changed when he received his pilot license at just seventeen. After that, he only spent a few years planning everything out before beginning his journey around the world. Matt is here with us today for an interview. Welcome Matt! First, why don’t you tell all our listeners about the craziest thing you saw during your adventure?
