I just had a snowstorm that piled up eight inches of snow. It truly was a winter wonder land, and there was white beauty everywhere. Since I didn't have anything to do that day, I really enjoyed it.
But then the second snowstorm arrived that night, piling additional inches of snow on top of the snow banks that were already there. And then on the evening news, the weather cast gave us a notice that still another snowstorm was headed our way. Then I felt despondent. I had things to do and places to go. After days of being snowbound, I felt like I was under
house arrest. I was stuck.
A place stuck isn't a fun place to be, whether it's from a snowstorm or from life circumstances such as a bad relationship, bills that seem to tower over our heads. or situations where we see no way out. All of us will feel stuck at one time or another, but it's how we respond that makes the difference.
I had a fried named Hannah. She was stuck in the heartbreaking world of infertility(不孕). She longed for a child more than anything. Instead of accepting defeat, she acted sincerely. Think about Nelson Mandela in a dark prison. It was a seemingly hopeless place, but instead of becoming depressed or bitter he kept fighting for freedom Yes, he kept fighting to get the success.
Circumstances cannot define us, but our reactions do. Each of those men and women learned important lessons in their “stuck" situations, and we can as well.

In a new study published on the Journal of Avian Biology, researchers at the National Autonomous University of Mexico tracked the behavior of house finches (雀) on the main campus of the university in Mexico City
The team created an artificial nest lining (内衬)，which includes feathers, cotton, hair and cigarette ends. Then, after the birds eggs had hatched, they replaced the original lining with the new one, to make sure the nests were pest free. The researchers then added live ticks (壁虱) to the mix, while dead ties were added to0 other linings.
It seems that urban house finches use more cigarette ends to line their nests when they've been invaded by ticks. And, those whose nests were given live ticks increased their cigarette end weight by about 40 percent more than those where dead ticks had been used, according to New Scientist. The technique is likely a form of self medication, the experts explain, as it's thought that the chemicals in cigarette ends can help to keep off the pests.
While this behavior may have its benefits, the researchers say it's also possible that the use of cigarette ends in the nests could have negative effects. “It is a matter of concern that cigarette ends, being poisonous, are part of house finch nests in Mexico City," the authors explain in the paper, “but we have not come across evidence of long term costs of using this material.
According to the researchers, a thorough evaluation will be necessary to determine the real effects of using cigarette ends, whether they are positive or not. But they explain, the findings do suggest that the cigarette ends are linked to the presence of ticks and likely play a role in keeping them away.
28. What does the underlined phrase “the mix" in paragraph 2 refer to?
A. The former nests. B. The artificial lining.
C. The cigarette ends. D. The original lining.
29. What is paragraph 3 mainly about?
A. The findings of the experiment.
B. The application of the research findings.
C. The theory related to the recent research.
D. The reasons for house finches using cigarette ends.
30. What did house finches do when live ticks were found in their nests?
A. Eat them out. B. Dust them off. C. Build firmer D. Use more cigarette ends.
31. Which word best describes the author’s attitude to the study?
A. Skeptical. B. Conservative. C. Objective. D. Tolerant.
Cars could soon be communicating with each other using 5G to make drivers aware of upcoming dangers, scientists claim. The ultra-fast mobile Internet would allow for rapid information transmission and could make divers aware of black ice pot holes or other dangers up ahead.
Several car manufacturers are already integrating 5G into their vehicles, including as a
tool to welcome the coming of self-diving vehicles. Experts belie the high-speed connection will also improve the reliability and capability of automated vehicles to the point where they will be safer than the manual cars being driven today, They predict the number of road traffic accidents -which according to the World Heath Organization (WHO) account for more than 1. 3 million deaths and up to 50 million people injured worldwide every year- will drop thoroughly as a result.
Dr Dimitrios Liarokapis, a member of the research group, said: “With the help of 5G, an early warning system that alerts (给....报警) drivers is possible within the next few years. Cars that are close enough to the danger area will send warning messages to other cars around them using short-range communication technologies, but also to cars further away using 5G, fast and reliably. Then those cars will transmit the same information to cars near them and so on, forming a joined-up, multi-vehicle communication chain that stretches far and wide."
Automotive giant Ford is already working on connected cars. Earlier this year it revealed its intention to fit 80 percent of its 2020 vehicles with technology that warns drivers about upcoming road accidents, bad weather and traffic jams. The system pools data from other connected road users, emergency services and the authorities and sends it from the cloud directly to the car. Alerts are shown on the car s dashboard display warning the driver about what lies around the corner.
32. How can 5G help reduce road accidents?
A. By offering the fast mobile Internet.
B. By helping drivers overcome dangers.
C. By offering practical safety programs.
D. By helping WHO calculate traffic accidents.
33. What is the function of the communication chain?
A. To track other drivers. B. To send warning messages.
C. To collect drivers' information. D. To send the traffic situation to the police,
34. What can we expect of the cars in the future?
A. They will be safer. B. They may be bigger.
C. They may replace other vehicles. D. They will be more personalized.
35. What can be inferred from the last paragraph?
A. Cars of Ford are the most intelligent.
B. Warning messages are shown on phones.
C. Ford is the first producer to use 5G.
D. Connected cars are equipped with 5G.
There are lots of things to pay attention to when the new school year starts. Although it is exciting for students, this yearly transition can also be a big source of stress. 36 Here are some ways to make your back to school experience as smooth as possible.
Get organized. 37 You can set up a system that you can use right from the beginning of the term. Some students find that a colorful binder (活页夹) helps them keep all their assignments in order. Others might benefit from keeping a weekly plan in a notebook.
Make a schedule. Outline a daily plan for school projects, social events and activities. Make sure you record your assignments in the same place every week. Next, we suggest separating assignments into smaller, manageable steps, and then ordering those steps according to the project due date. 38 Finally, these steps will help you learn the time management skills.
39 One of the most important things you can do to ensure a great school year is to understand how you learn best. Some children absorb information by listening; other students do best when information is conveyed visually, through charts or illustrations.
Remember to take breaks. 40 As time goes by, they also seem to get fuller. Don't forget to build breaks into your routine. Even a two minute walk around the house or quick snack can work wonders for a busy brain. We all need to take moments to reset our minds.
A. Identify your learning style.
B. Focus on the most effective time.
C. You can join a famous organization.
D. Make sure your study is free of the mess.
E. The beginning of the year can feel good for everyone.

第四部分 写作(共两节 ,满分40分)
The Most Meaningful Thing I Did
The fourth Thursday in November is called Thanksgiving Day, which has been one of the most important festivals in the United States. The theme is thankfulness for peace and happiness of family life during the past year. People usually eat roast turkey and pumpkin pie to celebrate the holiday.
There are always moving stories about Thanksgiving Day. Though the stories have different leading roles, the topics of them are the same: showing the sincere appreciation to their loved people, such as parents, siblings (兄弟姊妹)，friends, teachers and so on.
I also have a moving story that happened on Thanksgiving Day. At first it sounded like a thanksgiving story, but the more I reflected on it, the more appropriate it seemed for any time of the year. The story went like this: when Thanksgiving Day was coming, a teacher gave her class an interesting task- to draw a picture of something for which they were thankful.
Most of the class might be considered economically disadvantaged, but still many would celebrate the holiday with turkey, corn, pumpkins and other traditional things of the season, like all of those symbols drawn on the holiday decorations and greeting cards. These, the teacher thought, would be the subjects of most of her students' art.
All students drew their pictures as the teacher thought, except one boy——Peterson. He made a different kind of picture. Peterson seemed to be a strange student in the class. As other children played during break, he usually chose to quietly stand close by the teacher's side. They didn't know what had ever happened to him and nobody could guess how Peterson felt behind his sad eyes. He didn't like to play with the other students nor talk with them.
When the little boy was asked to draw a picture of something for which he was thankful, he drew a hand. There was nothing else but an empty hand on the picture. It was different
from other pictures.
His abstract picture caught the imagination of his classmates.______________
When the children went on to discuss other pictures, the teacher paused at the boy's desk.
