The Information Highway is the road that links computer users to a large number of on-line services： the Web，e-mail，and software，to mention just a few. Not long ago，the Information Highway was a new road with not many users. Now，everyone seems to want to take a drive, with over 30 million families connected worldwide. Not surprisingly, this well-traveled highway is starting to look like a well-traveled highway. Traffic jams can cause many serious problems，forcing the system to close down for repair. Naturally，accidents will happen on such a crowded road，and usually victims are some files，gone forever. Then，of course，there’s Mr. Cool，with this new broad-band connection，who speeds down the highway faster than most of us can go. But don’t trick yourself；he pays for that speeding.

Think about the different ways that people use the wind. You can use it to fly a kite or to sail a boat. Wind is one lf our cleanest and richest power sources(来源) as well as one of the oldest. Evidence shows that windmills(风车)began to be used in ancient Iran back in the seventh century BC. They were first introduced to Europe during the 1100s.when armies returned from the Middle East with knowledge of using wind power.
For many centuries, people used windmills to grind(磨碎)wheat into our or pump water from deep underground. When electricity was discovered in the late 1800s. people living in remote areas began to use them to produce electricity. This allowed them to have electric lights and radio. However, by the1940s when electricity was available to people in almost all areas of the United States, windmills were rarely used.
During the 1970s,people started becoming concerned about the pollution that is created when coal and gas are burned to produce electricity .People also realized that the supply of coal and gas would not last forever .Then, wind was rediscovered ,though it means higher costs. Today ,there is a global movement to supply more and more of our electricity through the use of wind.

Ireland has had a very difficult history .The problems started in the 16th century when English ruler tried to conquer (征服) Ireland . For hundreds of years, the Irish people fought against the English ,Finally, in 1921 ,the British government was forced to give independence to the south of Ireland .The result in that today there are two “Irelands”. Northern Ireland, in the north, is part of the United Kingdom. The Republic of Ireland, in the south, is an independent country.
In the 1840s, the main crop, potatoes, was affected by disease and about 750,000 people died of hunger.

For many years, the majority of Irish people earned their living as farmers. Today, many people will work on the land but more and more people are moving to the cities to work in factories and offices. Life in the cities is very different from life in the countryside, where things move at a quieter and slower pace .
The Irish are famous for being warm-hearted and friendly. Oscar Wilde. a famous Irish writer, once said that the Irish were “the greatest talkers since the Creeks”.

George Prochnik would like the world to put a sock in it. He makes his case in a new book. Listening for Meaning in a World of Noise. Here he explains himself (using his indoor voice);
“We’ve become so accustomed to noise, there’s almost a deep prejudice against the idea that silence might be beneficial. If you tell someone to be quiet, you sound like an old man. But it’s never been important to find continuing quiet. Silence focuses us, improves our health, and is a key to lasting peace and satisfaction.”
“We need to excite people about the sounds you start to hear, if you merely quiet things down a little, During a Japanese tea ceremony, the smallest sounds become a kind of art the spoons making a light ringing sound on a bowl, the edges of a kimono（和服）brushing against the floor.
“Deaf people are very attentive（专注的） in almost every aspect of life. If two deaf people are walking together, using sign language, they constantly watch out for each other and protect each other by paying steady attention to the other. They are connected yet also fully aware of their surroundings, Even deaf teenagers! We in the hearing world can learn from them. If we remove the powerful blasts（一阵阵）of noise .we become aware of an extraordinarily rich world around us---of little soft sounds and the sound of footsteps, of bind songs and ice cracking（开裂声），it’s astonishing how beautiful things sound when you can really listen..”
72．What does the phrase “to put a sock in it ”in Paragraph 1 probably mean?

C．to be full of love D．to be attentive to someone

B．There is nothing to be learned from the deaf
C．We are not aware how rich the world around us is.
D．There is too much noise at Japanese tea ceremony.
75．It can be inferred from the text that
A．we can benefit a lot from old people
B．it is a good idea to use sign language.
C．there is no escape from the world of sound
D．it is possible to find how beautiful things sound
If we agree that the function of education is to prepare us for life, then there is very little time to waste. So, while we can, we ought to concentrate on teaching children something really useful. Here is what our schools should teach.
Politeness is a mark of civilization. The sooner children learn this, the better . In any case, a lot can be accomplished by a smile and good manners.
Like it or not, our adult lives will be consumed by the struggle for money, but we don't make an effort to teach children how to manage it. So our schools have a duty to teach them this ability from the beginning.
We're likely to accept something we are told, but that's not what educated people do. Educated people are reasonable and they look at facts. If our schools teach nothing else, they should at least teach critical（批判性的）thinking.
Children should learn to take care of their health. They should know that if they eat junk food（垃圾食品）,they will become fat and unhealthy. They should be very clear about what happens to their bodies when they drink or smoke.
All of us are part of society. We have rights and responsibilities. We ought to understand what they are. We have to know a little bit of our history and geography, because we need to have an environment in which to relate to the people around us.
How will we test students on these? We can't. But that's not a reason to avoid teaching what is important. Our schools should spend every moment they have telling this to our children:" This is life, this is what you are going to face, and this is how you deal with it."
