Regrets are often painful. A study suggests that some people can overcome them, said Jia Wei Zhang. a psychology graduate at the University of California. But this isn't the case for everyone, he said.
The researchers wondered why some people report feeling improvement from regrets but others don't. Does it lie in how people approach their regrets?
In the study, the researchers focused on self-compassion(自我同情）as a potential factor in why some people have an easier time leaving their regrets behind them.
400 people attended an experiment. First, they were asked to write about their biggest regret. Half wrote something they did but wish they hadn't done;the other half wrote something they didn't do but wish they had. Then, the participants were randomly assigned to one of three groups:self-compassion, self-esteem and a control group. The self-esteem group was asked to respond by "talking to yourself about this regret from the aspect of confirming your positive qualities".
The control group was asked to write about their favorite hobby rather than their regret. Then, they were asked about their feelings of forgiveness, acceptance and personal improvement following the exercise.
They found that the self-compassion group reported greater feelings of acceptance, forgiveness and personal improvement, compared with the control group and the self-esteem group. In other words, focusing on your best qualities is not what helps you feel better about a regret. Rather, being compassionate toward yourself is what may make a difference, the researchers found.
It's possible that people who practice self-compassion are able to confront their regrets and see what went wrong, so they can make a better choice in the future, Zhang told Live Science. Self-compassion pushes people to accept their regret instead of running away from it.
The researchers used an example of this from a previous study on breast cancer patients who were asked to try thinking about their treatment in a positive light before it began. The women who did so reported greater feelings of personal growth later on.
25. What does the underlined word"confront"in Paragraph 7 mean?
A. Handle B. Forget. C. Ignore D. Show.
26. What were the students in the self-esteem group asked to do?
A. Think of a way out.
B. Write about their regrets.
C. Record their favorite hobbies.
D. Treat their regrets in positive ways.
27. Why were the participants asked about their good qualities?
A. To cover up their regrets.
B. To see if they have weaknesses.
C. To see if they have self-compassion.
D. To help them feel better about their regrets.
28. What was the aim of mentioning the researchers' study on breast cancer patients?
A. To show the method of the research.
B. To show the value of the acceptance.
C. To show the truth of people's feeling.
D. To show the difficulty of the research.
Your next Saturday night takeaway could be brought to you by a robot after a major food delivery company announced plans to use automated vehicles to transport meals. Europe's biggest online takeaway food company Just Eat has partnered with Starship Technologies to deliver food with robots on the streets of London later this month. "Nobody has ever done deliveries with land-based robots, "said Allan Martinson, the chief operating officer of Starship.
The robot courier can travel up to 4 miles per hour for about 10 miles. It uses a GPS signal and nine cameras to navigate(确定方向）。Instead of a person arriving at their door, customers could find themselves receiving a notification on their phone that says a robot is on its way and a code to unlock the automated courier. "Put the code in, the robot opens up, and there's your food, "said David Buttress, chief manager of Just Eat.
The robot, which has so far been tested in Greenwich, Milton Keynes and Glastonbury, costs E l to transport within 3 miles, compared with the E3 to E6 it costs for a human courier. To date 30 robots have driven nearly 5, 000 miles without getting into an accident or finding themselves picked on by passers-by. They have driven in more than 40 cities around the world, including London and Tallinn, Estonia.
An initial worry was how the public would react to robots. But Martinson said the public has been calm when passing the delivery machine on the streets. "The most surprising reaction has been the lack of reaction, "said Martinson.
Another significant fear was that people would disrupt(扰）the robots, or try to steal them and their contents. To prevent this, the robot is fitted with nine cameras, two way audio, and movement sensors that send a warning if it is lifted off the ground. And it opens only with a passcode provided to the customer via a notification. "It's much easier to shoplift than it is to steal a robot, "said Martinson.
29. Which of the following can replace the underlined word "courier" in Paragraph 2?
A. Deliverer. B. Collector. C. Provider. D. Guide.
30. Which of the following is one of the worries about Starship robots?
A. Safety of the robot delivery.
B. Accuracy of the robot delivery.
C. People's indifference to the robots.
D. People's concern about public traffic.
31. Which of the following would be the best title for the text?
A. Great Improvement of Just Eat
B. Global Trend of Food Companies
C. New Robots to Move on the Road
D. Delivery Robots to Replace Takeaway Drivers
Food storing is common in members of the crow(乌鸦）family. A new study tested the birds outside this naturally occurring behaviour, which may have evolved(进化）specifically because it gives crows a survival advantage. Some crow species are known to naturally use tools to recover food. So the researchers tested whether the birds could store and recover a tool so they could get it at their food after a gap of 17 hours-something we wouldn't expect them to do naturally. But they were able to instantly select the tool out of a number of unnecessary items.
In another experiment, the researchers taught crows to select a token(礼品券）from a number of items so that they could then exchange for food. Again, the birds then showed that they could plan for the future using this new behaviour. This is different from all of the previous studies in future planning, which have focused on naturally occurring behaviour. For example, we know that chimpanzees select, transport and save appropriate tools for future needs.
These studies have shown that animals can plan for the future-but they left an important question open for debate. Are animals only able to plan to use abilities that have evolved to give them a specific advantage, or can they flexibly and intelligently apply planning behaviour across various actions? Most critics would say the former, as the animals were tested in naturally occurring behaviors.
But the new research provides the first evidence that animal species can plan for the future using behaviour that doesn't typically occur in nature. This supports the view that at least some recognitive abilities in animals don't evolve just in response to specific problems. Instead, it suggests that animals can apply these behaviors flexibly across problems in a similar way to humans. We need to investigate how flexible behaviour evolved. Then we might be able to see how crows' ability to plan for the future fits in with their broader cognitive powers.
32. What's the new finding about some crows according to Paragraph 1?
A. They can store food.
B. They can use tools to recover food.
C. They can store and recover tools.
D. They can select and store food.
33. What are crows trained by scientists to do when given a token?
A. Reject it casually.
B. Exchange it for food.
C Save it as their food.
D. Build a nest with it.
34. What do scientists think of the studies that animals can plan for the future?
A. They are debatable.
B. They are disappointing.
C. They are contradictory.
D. They are convincing.
35. What can be inferred about recognitive abilities in animals?
A. They develop only with age.
B. It is unclear how they've evolved now.
C. No animals but crows benefit from them.
D. Planning for the future helps their evolution.

假定你是一名加拿大籍交换生 David, 2020 年来到中国华为公司学习，期间好友李华在汉语
Dear Li Hua,
Albert was mad about computer games. He could spend hours and hours in front of the screen, and even though his parents found it hard to believe, he really enjoyed every minute of it. He hardly left his seat. When people encouraged him to get involved with normal life, he would respond:＂This is my doorway to the world, there is much more here than you realize. "
Among all his games there was one he especially liked. In it he would move a character around, collecting turtles(乌龟）on an infinity(无限）of levels and screens. He was a real expert at it. Maybe there was no one else in the world who had collected as many turtles as he had, but, nevertheless, Albert still wanted more and more and more. . .
One day, when he got home from school, everything had changed. As usual, as soon as he arrived, he ran to his room to switch the computer on. But this time he heard some strange noises, like breaking glass. Suddenly the screen broke, and from inside came dozens, then hundreds, then thousands of little turtles. And they filled every square inch of his bedroom. Albert was astonished. He couldn't believe what was happening. But after pinching(掐）himself, he shut down and started the computer up many times, and called to his parents to see if he was dreaming about this. As it happens, he had to accept that on that day something very strange was happening.
On entering, his parents put their heads in their hands. Seeing that the turtles were staying in Albert' s room, they decided to make them his responsibility.
Looking after thousands of turtles, day after day, was no easy task.
When Albert forgot about his beloved computer games, the turtles disappeared.
