Facial expressions are the primary way people exhibit emotion and read the feelings of others. Happiness,sadness,disgust,fear and surprise can be communicated through facial expressions alone.But when part of the face is masked, it becomes more difficult to recognize these cues.
If you cannot read someone else' s emotional state,your ability to empathize(共鸣）with them may be compromised.Likewise,if your own mask is hiding your emotional state,others may not be able to empathize with you.Wearing a mask can also make you feel more distracted and self- conscious, further weakening your connection to others.
Fortunately,you can regain some control over communication by working with what you have left-the eyes. If you want to increase understanding with a masked individual, you should look them in the eyes,which may be easier said than done.Eye contact generates self- consciousness, consumes extra brain power and becomes uncomfortable after only three seconds.But bear in mind, eye contact can also make you appear more intelligent and trustworthy.
You might be surprised how much information is conveyed(传达）by the body itself.For instance,when someone is happy,they stand up straighter,when they are sad,they drop their head; and when they are angry,their whole body tenses up.Learning how people use their bodies to convey emotion may help reduce the uncertainty you feel when communicating with someone in a mask.
Become aware of your own body language, too. When engaged in a conversation, you can appear more attentive by turning your body toward the individual, Leaning in or nodding. To let another person know you want to start speaking , straighten your posture, or nod more frequently. Finally, he «ware that imitating the posture of another person can increase how much they like you and even agree with you.
By all means, continue the proper measures to keep yourself safe, but don't neglect your relationships as a consequence. Social distance doesn't have to mean socially distant.

I often find peacefulness in a soaring stone church, a cool open place to sit and contemplate. The giant trunk-like pillars(柱子） and the gentle play of the light cast through a church's stained glass windows create a shaded garden of stone and multicolored light.
Glass itself is one of the fruits of the art of fire.It is a fusion(熔接） of the Earth's rocks melted at high temperatures. Glass's liquid-like structure is one of the main reasons it is transparent(透明的）. However,"transparent" does not necessarily mean that all light can pass through it. Some obsidian(黑曜石）glasses are so darkly colored that they are effectively black and opaque(不透光的）. This is because electrons of some elements in the obsidian are arranged in such a way that their energy is the same as the energy of visible light.
This ability of certain elements to absorb light and give color is used to great effect in stained glass windows.For example,adding cobalt oxide(氧化钴） to the glass during melting will make it blue because cobalt absorbs wavelengths at the red end of the spectrum(光谱）but does not absorb blue.These colors were discovered by the ancients through trial and error,adding different minerals to the melting pot and melting for different periods of time,even though they had no idea what caused them.
The term "stained glass"telescopes(精简）three different processes: coloring,staining and painting,each one complex and requiring the application of many skills.In the mid-16th century, however,different colored enamels(珐琅）began to be used.It has been said that the appearance of enameling was the death of the great stained glass window artists.I am not sure if this is true,but I do know that standing in front of a great stained glass window is a magical experience. Next time you are in a soaring cathedral,take a moment to admire the windows.
32.Why does the author write this passage?
A. To show the actual way to make stained glass.
B.To express his appreciation of stained glass.
C. To talk about the function of stained glass.

A.By melting some of the Earth's rocks with sun energy.
B.By painting some colors on rocks before melting them.

You may have grown up living with lots of siblings, or this may be your first time sharing your living space with someone else. 36 . Follow these tips to make sure you and your roommate keep things pleasant and supportive throughout the year (or even years!).
Address problems when they're little
Is your roommate always forgetting her stuff for the shower,and taking yours?Are your clothes being borrowed faster than you can wash them? Addressing things that bug you while they're still little can help your roommate be aware of something she may not otherwise know. And addressing little things is much easier than addressing them after they've become big.
Respect your roommate's stuff
This may seem simple, but it's probably one of the biggest reasons why roommates experience conflict. Don't think he' ll mind if you borrow his cleats for a quick soccer game? For all you know, you just stepped over a line that is not crossable. 37
Be mindful of who you bring into your room-and how often
You may love having your study group into your room. 38 Be mindful of how often you bring people over.If your roommate studies best in the quiet, and you study best in a group, can you alternate who hits the library and who gets the room?
Be friendly,without expecting to be best friends
Don't go into your roommate relationship thinking that you are going to be best friends for the time you're at school. 39 . You should be friendly with your roommate but also make sure you have your own social circles.
Treat your roommate like you'd like to be treated.Deal with problems properly.No matter what your relationship is at the end of the year,you can take comfort knowing you acted like an adult and treated your roommate with respect.
A.If nothing else,follow the golden rule
B.Don't borrow, use, or take anything without getting permission first
C.But your roommate may not
D.While having a roommate inevitably has its challenges, it can also be a great part of your life experience
E.However,your roommate may also think so
F. Address problems when they're big,too
G. It may happen, but expecting it sets both of you up for trouble
There was a time when I was certain I could never deeply love an animal. I know this is＿41_to admit.In Britain,an indifference(冷漠）to pets is considered a fault on one's character.
My wife was also_42_sure that she could never deeply love me if I could not love animals. And at the beginning of this year,the_43_increased.We were to_44_a cat from a friend who had fallen for a woman who is allergic(过敏的）to them.
I_45_-but coldly enough,I felt,to make clear that I would not be_46_for the creature's upkeep.I would_47_the cost of cat food, of course,but like a strict Victorian father I would avoid_48_entanglement(瓜葛）．
However,Hopper-well,I hardly need tell you that Hopper_49_from other cats.Eight years old but slim as a kitten. Green-eyed and white-socked. Entirely independent but in need of human _50__, too, when the mood takes her.Like I said-unique.
These last four months have_51_me to spend an unexpected amount of time with Hopper. In my makeshift office, she sleeps beside me, meows at my feet, or leaps onto my back. Through the window,I watch Hopper stalk(踱方步）through the long grass,_52_me of a wilder world outside.Every morning I_53_her;every evening we play with a feather stuck to a stick.It is our_54_-the only part of my timetable that has not been_55_by the coronavirus(冠状病毒）。Without the lockdown,would I have realized the everyday happiness a cat can bring?

When Costco opened its first store in China in 2019, it wasn't just the hot barbecue chickens and discounted Birkin bags_56_attracted overexcited crowds.A fiery,throat-tingling liquor called Kweichow Moutai also flew off shelves.
57 1,498 yuan,or S209 for a half-liter bottle, it might not sound like the kind of bargain Costco shoppers usually go for-but in this case, it absolutely was.That price_58_(represent) a sharp discount over Moutai sold elsewhere-that is, if you could get your hands on it.The luxury spirit is so beloved in China, it sold out quickly.
Even amid a global pandemic,Kweichow Moutai,the company that makes the liquor,had 59 outstanding year: its stock surged around 70% on the Shanghai Stock Exchange in 2020.The company is China's most valuable firm outside of technology-worth more than the country's four biggest banks. 60_ (globe). its market cap has not only beaten all other alcohol distillers(酿酒公司），but also Coca-Cola,which had long held the crown as the world's largest beverage(饮品） maker by market cap. 61 (value) at 2.7 trillion yuan, or S421 billion, Kweichow Moutai is worth more than Toyota,Nike and Disney,too.
Apart from popularity in China, 62 ,Moutai is still virtually unknown overseas. Almost all-about 97%-of its sales come from China alone,according to its 63 (finance)reports.
So how is a company 64 sells its products primarily in just one country now worth more than some longstanding bchemoths(巨头）？ And can Kweichow Moutai,which 65 (describe) in the west as "drinking liquid razor blades," succeed in appealing to non-Chinese consumers?
At first glance she looked like any other old woman, plodding along in the snow ,alone,neglected,head bowed. A young couple, smiling,taking,laughing, arms loaded with Christmas presents,took no notice of the old woman. A mother with two small children hurried by, on their way to grandmother’s house. Like many others, they took no notice,either. If these people had noticed,they would have seen that the old woman wore no shoes. She walked bare foot in the ice and snow.
With both hands the old woman gathered her worn button-less overcoat at the collar to keep out the wind. She stopped and stood bent and bowed at the bus stop.A red and blue scarf covering her head, she waited for the downtown bus.
A gentleman carrying an Important looking briefcase waited near her,not too closely.After all,she could have something contagious (传染的）. A teenage girl also waited for the bus,She glanced repeatedly at the old woman's feet, but said nothing.
The bus arrived and the old woman slowly, painfully boarded.She sat on the sideways sent Just behind the driver.The gentleman and the teenage girl hurried to the back of the bus.A little boy pointed at the old woman,"Look,Mother,that old lady is bare foot."The embarrassed mother slapped his hand down. "Don't point at people, Andrew. I's not polite to point." She looked out of the window.
＂She must have sons or daughters," a lady in a fur coat suggested, “her children should be ashamed of themselves." She felt morally superior,because she took good care of her mother.
A man seated near the middle of the bus steadied the bag of gifts on her lap. "Don't we pay enough taxes to handle situations like this?" he said to a friend seated beside him.
“People have to learn to save their money," a well-dressed young college man added. “If that old woman had saved when she was young, she wouldn't be suffering now. It's her own fault."
And all these vain(虚荣的）people beamed with satisfaction that they had all given such deep analysis,totally ignoring the old woman who badly needed a pair of shoes immediately.
A vain businessman felt offended by those talking without acting and reached into his wallet.
At the next stop.a young man wearing expensive.new.brand-name shoes boarded the bus,
