Tony Williams, 75 from Alton, East Hampshire, lost his wife Jo back in May, when, tragically, Jo, passed away from cancer just nine days after she was diagnosed.
And ever since, Tony has been completely alone, explaining the continuous loneliness is “like torture (折磨)With no family nearby, Tony took finding a friend into his own hands, even putting two adverts in his local newspaper and handing out cards. Heartbreakingly, he received no responses.
But after a poster he placed in his window made headlines this week, the retired physicist has been overwhelmed with responses from people wanting to be his friend. In just a couple of days, he's had between 50 and 70 phone calls with strangers, and meanwhile he's received thousands of emails.
Tony said: "I just regret it's impossible for me to answer even a small part of calls and emails. If I could meet them all I would tell them how much I care for them and how much I'd like to reach out to them as they did to me. The love, kindness and compassion they've shown actually brought tears to my eyes.”
He has even had phone calls from as far as America and Canada!
Tony met his late wife Jo, who he describes as his “best friend and soul mate," in a bar more than 35 years ago, and describes their marriage as a "perfect harmony''. The couple, who lived in Gloucestershire for 25 years, were unable to have any children, and so depended on each other heavily for company and support.
“For weeks and weeks, it looked as if I was pushing doors open and they were immediately slammed in my face. And then I was isolated and almost totally abandoned. And I thought, I've got to do something about that," he recalled.
Tony's determination has paid off, getting hundreds of people queuing up to be his friend. We're so pleased for you, Tony!

Bricks are one of the oldest known building materials, dating back thousands of years. But researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have found a new use for bricks: as energy storage units. A team of engineers and chemists have found a way to transform an ordinary house brick into a “battery” --- allowing it to conduct and store electricity. The bricks are powerful enough to light up an LED bulb, and cost only about 3 dollars to make.
“I love the idea of adding value to things that are inexpensive, things that are affordable, things that we kind of take for granted," says Julio D'Arcy, who is an assistant professor of chemistry at Washington University and one of the researchers on this project.
The brick-battery relies on the reddish pigment （色素）known as iron oxide, or rust, which gives red bricks their color. The scientists pumped the bricks with several gases that react with iron oxide to produce a network of plastic fibers. These small fibers coat the empty spaces inside the bricks — and conduct electricity.
What the researchers are trying to do is to make specialized plastics that are only used on the nanoscale （纳米级）where they use very little of the plastic and they can actually fix that plastic firmly inside construction materials.
In the future, D'Arcy says, a brick wall could potentially serve a dual purpose: providing structural support and storing electricity generated from renewable energy sources, such as solar panels.
The technology is still at least a few years away from being ready for the commercial market. And right now, the energy storage capacity of the bricks is still pretty low - about 1 percent of a lithium ion （锂离子）battery. But the team is now testing ways to improve brick performance. hoping to make a breakthrough and practical application to better the seemingly ordinary construction materials as soon as possible.
28. What new function has been found in house bricks?
A. They can serve as a power plant.B.Theycan take the place of plastics.
C. They can save a lot of energy.D.Theycan reserve electricity.
29. What can we infer about the plastic fibers?
A. They arc pumped into bricks.B.Theymust be tiny in size.
C. They cover the surface of bricks.D.Theyreact with iron oxide.
30. Brick batteries are still in the experimental stage because.
A. their capacity is still lowB. their cost is very high
C. they make no profitsD. they are not safe enough
31. Which can be a suitable title for the text?
A. Construction Turns SmartB. High Tech Develops Fast
C. Old Bricks Play New TricksD. Buildings Become Greener
One of the fundamental things we really love in cities is order. Order means balance, symmetry （对称）and repetition: the same thing happening again and again, and the left side matching the right side.
Order is one of the reasons why so many people love Paris. But most cities are a complete mess. When it's a mess, it seems like no one is in charge. And that's worrying. It's horrible when everything is jumbled up: a pitched roof next to a flat roof; 3 simple bare box next to a messy car park; high-rise towers that look as if they've been placed at random, like teeth in a yawning mouth.
We generally have a desire to straighten things out. And when we can't. it's frustrating. The same urge is there when we look at cities. Often, it's not skyscrapers that we mind in the city. It's skyscrapers that have been planted there without planning, like they are increasingly appearing in London, while New York or Chicago shows the ordered way that we love.
However, you have to keep something else in mind. Unreasonable order can be just as much of a problem. Too much regularity can be soul-destroying. Too much order feels rigid and alien. It can be indifferent, cold, severe, unkind, or even cruel. So the ideal we're seeking is variety and order.
This is the idea in a square in Tele in the Czech Republic, where every house is the same width and height. But within that ordered partem, every house has been allowed freedom at the level of form and color. We're perfectly in the middle between chaos and boringness here. And that's what humans adore.
So as a general rule: too much mess, and it's off-putting; but too much simple order, and it’s boring.
32. What does the underlined phrase "jumbled up” in Paragraph 2 mean?
A. Out of order.B. Causing worries.C. In good order.D. At random.
33. Which of the following cities docs the author dislike?
A. New York.B. London.C. Paris.D. Tele.
34. What's the author's opinion about skyscrapers?
A. They should be made lower.B.Theyshould have plants on top.
C. They should be well planned.D.Theirnumbers should be limited.
35. According to the author, an ideal city features .
A. balance and repetitionB.freeforms and rich colors
C. the same height and widthD.bothorder and variety
Camping often sounds like a great deal of fun: however, it does require some special preparation. Before going camping for the first time, make sure you have done some research on tents, food and wildlife survival. 36
Make sure you pack the appropriate clothing for your trip. Check the weather forecast and bring the clothing that will be needed on your trip. 37 Remember to also pack a rain poncho （雨披）no matter what the weather forecast predicts.
Do not hesitate to pack too much for your kids. Being out in the wild can result in all sorts
of messes. Kids are always attracted to dirt. 38 You can not really prevent it from happening, but you can pack extra clothes. Remember, always be prepared!
39 Always choose one suitable for a temperature range just below what you're expecting, even in the summertime. Also, pay attention to the different materials used for sleeping bags. Sleeping bags made with synthetic （合成的）fibers will dry out faster if it rains unexpectedly, but natural fiber sleeping bags will be lighter to carry.
Make sure that you avoid any poisonous plants. A good way to do this is to stop at the ranger station （护林站）and ask what kinds of poisonous plants are in the area. 40 Never cat anything while hiking on the path if you do not know it is edible （可食用的）.
A. Below are some tips on your purchase before you go camping.
B. This means that as the day goes on, the dirtier your kids will get.
C. It can make the difference between a great trip and a dangerous one.
D. Think about all the things you might need days before you leave for it.
E. So you can identify them if you come into contact with them on the path.
F. Be prepared for colder weather than expected when choosing a sleeping bag.
G. If it is going to be cold, make sure you have the appropriate coats, gloves, and shoes.
I'm about to begin my fifth season of tree planting.

In the early hours of the morning, we join our teams and travel along 48 roads deep into the 49 . When stepping out of the trucks, often in the pouring rain, we fill our bags with hundreds of tiny trees. Having done the job together for some years, many 50 tree-planters treat this more like a sport than a job, and 51 fills the air.
Once our bags are full, we 52 up the hillside without hesitation. We jump from log to log. We push through thick bushes. We 53 and rise to our feet 54 . always pushing ourselves to go faster.

Scientific experts have warned that deadly pandemics are likely to keep happening 61 action is not taken to protect natural environments. Future pandemics will happen 62 (often), spread faster and kill more people than COVID-19, the experts said. Such events are also expected to cause lasting harm to the world economy.
The warning came in a report from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, an international expert group 63 advises governments. 64 group has more than 130 member states.
The experts called 65 major efforts aimed at preventing pandemics rather than _66 (attempt) to contain them after they happen. The report urges major worldwide efforts __67 (stop) habitat destruction that can lead viruses to jump from wild animals to humans. It's estimated that three out of every four new or emerging infectious diseases in people come from animals.
Deforestation, agriculture 68 （expand）, urbanization and other land-use changes are responsible for about one-third of all new diseases that 69 （emerge） since 1960, the report says. The ﹩100 billion global wildlife trade is also responsible for the spread of new and existing diseases.
70 （current）, the method for dealing with pandemics is to wait for them to emerge and then try to identify them before they spread. COVID-19 has demonstrated the problems with that plan. It's not a good strategy. We need to do more.
Richard is our foreign teacher, whom is from England. He has a interesting way to make his classes attractive and lively. For example, in last Friday, when he explained the meaning of “crawl" to us, he did not just tell us their definition from the dictionary. Instead, he lay on his stomach and move forward on his hands and knees slowly. We watched him with interest, laughed loudly. Thus the concept of the word rooted in our mind. Richard can speak some Chinese, and his pronunciation is not well. He often asks us to correct his mistakes. Have you heard of a teacher who learns from student? Richard does!
I'm looking forward to good news from you.
