I'd always loved the idea of reading to kids when I was a teen and sworn that by the time I had children of my own, I'd read to them as often as possible. Even when my older son was a baby, I read to him every single night. As time went on, it became a place, a time of bond¬ing, of uninterrupted connectivity, of non — formal learning and deep joy. Bedtime stories be¬came an essential part in our household.
In the days and months after my older son's autism(自闭症) assessment, sleeplessness would raise its ugly head so frequently. I read as much literature and observed my son as much as I could. I decided that even routinizing something as simple as preparation for bed may be key to both him and the rest of the household getting a good night's sleep.
“Our Bedtime Routine” was thus born. I made sure to include a massage(按摩) as often as possible. Even a cup of delicious hot chocolate was part of the schedule. But central to our routine was a bedtime story. Having a solid bedtime routine meant that most days? my sons had a good start to their next day.
My older son still struggled with the simple yet challenging business of falling asleep. There has been a bedtime story program where local stories are being read to children on social media. Three of my very own stories were read on this program? ReadZMeTT. When my older son again struggled to close his eyes, I, inspired by Read2MeTT and recalling our old routine? read one of my stories to my sons.
At 16, my older son's too old for a bedtime story, too old to be comforted by the gift of a nightly tale. Or is he? For the first time in over a month, my older son smiled, pulled up his sheets and simply went to sleep.
24. What is may be the effect of the author's “Our Bedtime Routine"?
A. Making her family well-educated.
B. Helping her older son sleep peacefully.
C. Assisting her older son in his business.
D. Having her family famous through ReadZMeTT.
25. Why does the author mention Read2MeTT?
A. It inspired her to read her own stories.
B. It collected most of her bedtime stories.
C. It originated from her bedtime routine.
D. It offered many stories to children with autism.
26. How did the author feel when her older son was 16?
A. Concerned.B. Embarrassed.
C. Confused.D. Relieved.
27. What can we infer about the author from the text?
A. She is strong-willed.
B. She is very ambitious.
C. She concentrates on teaching reading.
D. She opens a program on social media.
Tears well up in people's eyes for a lot of reasons. A teardrop running down the cheek is the ultimate symbol of sadness, but people may also cry because they just cut an onion, or maybe they're trying to blink out an eyelash.
For the most part, tears help maintain healthy eyes. When you blink, basal(基底的) tears clean and smooth the eyes, which helps you to see clearly, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Moreover, reflex(反射性的) tears, or those that happen uncon¬sciously, help clear the eyes of irritants(刺激物) , including dust and the gas that's produced when a knife slices a raw onion, said Andre Silva, a doctoral student of psychology at the Uni¬versity of Minho in Portugal.
Emotions can also bring about tears in humans. These emotional tears can serve as a means of nonverbal communication. Silva said, “Babies cry to signal to their mothers that something's up. It's a pure attention call. Some people think that babies are capable of con¬trolling adults by crying, but that idea is false and misleading, as a baby is not conscious of being tricky： In a way? we can consider these tears as being somewhere between basal tears and emotional tears.
As people grow older, they begin to use their tears to express emotions, such as happi¬ness or sadness. These tears may promote compassion and empathy in others. But beware of people who may use their tears to control others. "Some sensitive people may be easily con¬trolled through the crying of others, and may easily shed tears that can also be used by others to control them,” he said.
So, emotional tears have both advantages and disadvantages. "They are a powerful com¬munication device and a powerful manipulative(操纵别人的) device,“ Silva said. Crying also makes it hard for some people to mask their feelings when they're in the middle of an extreme emotional state.
28. What's the function of reflex tears?
A. Reflecting our feelings.
B. Being used to affect others.
C. Serving as a means of interaction.
D. Clearing away harmful matters in the eyes.
29. What may Silva agree with according to the text?
A. Tears are usually used to pity others.
B, Babies burst into tears without tricks.
C. People mask their feelings when crying.
D. Blinking out an eyelash makes it easy to cry.
30. What can be learned from the text?
A. We ought to identify tears.
B. We should control babies, crying.
C. We need to smooth our eyes by emotional tears.
D. We can hardly fan others' sympathy by tears.
31. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. Why do people cry?
B. Why can tears control others?
C. How do people express emotions?
D. How can people make use of tears?
Those who want to set up office in the garden as temperatures rise should think twice or put a hat on. A new study shows that sunshine could diminish brain power, making it harder to make the right judgments.
Working in hot temperatures is already known to cause hyperthermia—a rise in body tem¬perature一which can cause physical exhaustion. But now scientists say prolonged exposure of the head to the sun also affects the brain's ability to function properly.
The study by university teams in Denmark and Greece said workers could be damaging their brains by working in hot, sunny conditions. Eight healthy, active males aged between 27 and 41 took part in the research. The brain function test consisted of four different computer-based maths and logic tasks that relied on precise calculations. Four heat lamps were positioned to radiate either on the lower body or the back, side and top of their heads. Professor Lars Nybo. of the department of nutrition, exercise and sports at the University of Copenhagen, said,” This study provides evidence that direct exposure to sunlight — especially to the head——impairs motor and cognitive performance.”
The decline in motor and cognitive performance was observed at 38. 5 degrees. Research¬ers said those exposed to sunlight for long periods should cover their heads. Professor Andtreas Flouis，of the FAME Laboratory in Greece， said： "It is of great importance that people working or undertaking daily activities outside should protect their head against sunlight.
Drops in mental performance caused by sunshine could also mean drivers were more likely to make mistakes on the road, Andtreas Flouis suggested.
32. What does the underlined word “diminish” in paragraph 1 mean?
A. Weaken.B. Improve.
C. Achieve.D. Change.
33, What is the function of the heat lamps in the study?
A. To light up the night.
B. To give off heat.
Q To warm the offices.
D. To increase the difficulty of tasks.
34. What does Lars Nybo think of the study?
A. Useless. B. Doubtful.C. Narrow.D. Meaningful.
35. What's the Andtreas Flouis’ suggestion for workers in the sun?
A. Wearing a hat.
B. Reducing workload.
C. Having a medical examination.
D. Doing exercises regularly.

Fiona Famous was a very popular girl at school. She was clever and fun, and got on well with everyone. It was no accident that Fiona was so popular. From an early age she had made an effort to be kind and friendly to everyone. She invited the whole class to her birthday par¬ty, and from time to time she would give presents to everybody. She was such a busy girl, with so many friends, that she hardly got a chance to spend time with individual friends. However, she felt very lucky； no other girl had so many friends at school and in the neighbor¬hood.
But everything changed on National Friendship Day. On that day, at school, everyone was having a great time, drawing, painting, and giving gifts. That day in class everyone had to make three presents to give to their three best friends. Fiona enjoyed the task of choosing three from all her friends.
However, when all the presents had been made and shared out among classmates, Fiona was the only one who didn't receive a present! She felt upset, and spent hours crying. How could it be that? So much effort had been made to make so many friends, but in the end no one saw her as their best friend. Everyone came and tried to comfort her. But each one only stayed for a short time before leaving.
This was exactly what Fiona had done so many times to others.
She realized that she was a good companion(伙伴)，but she had not been a true friend to
anyone. She had tried not to argue with anyone, and had tried to pay attention to everyone, but now she found out that it was not enough to create true friendship.
When she got home that night with tears in her eyes, Fiona turned to her mother for help. She asked her mother where she could find true friends.
Fiona's mother listened carefully to her story. _____________________________________________
Hearing this, Fiona decided to change her ways so that she could finally have some true friends. _____
