China's Most Mysterious（神秘的）Internet Celebrity（网红）
Her life looks like one straight out of a fairy tale（童话）. Li Ziqi impresses millions with her videos, where she makes seemingly everything with her own two hands, from dyeing a dress with fresh grape juice to fashioning traditional lipstick from roses in her garden.
She has some 50 million fans in China and another 8 million overseas, but she remains a mystery to many of them. In her videos, she doesn't speak, and she rarely gives interviews. But now, she's ready to open up to us.

Four years later, she started filming her life there. Whatever she makes, she leaves no stone unturned, going as far as raising baby ducklings just to make a sauce out of salted duck eggs.
Apart from food, she's also known for her videos presenting traditional crafts, like building a bamboo furniture set, which she says was inspired by one of her grandfather's old benches. Li's stylized presentations of rural life stand out in China's extremely competitive field of online videos.

Could bike share programs lead to greater cycling safety?
In April 2015, Philadelphia introduced a bike share program. By 2019, there were more than 1,300 bikes and 400 pedal-assisted electric bicycles available. People used them for about 50,000 trips a month.
Before the introduction of the bike share program, the rate of bicycle-car accidents had been gradually increasing. By May 2015, the month after the introduction of the program, the rate was twice that of January 2010.
But the researchers, writing in the American Journal of Public Health, found that from that time through the end of 2018, the rate decreased by an average of 13 percent a year, despite the increases over those years in the number of bicycles on city streets, and even though Philadelphia made no major basic construction changes, like adding many protected bike lanes（自行车道）.
The lead author, Ghassan B. Hamra, an assistant professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, said it appeared that there is safety in numbers: the more bikes on the road, the more car drivers adapt to their presence, and the safer cyclists may be.
"We all know that bike riding is a healthy activity, physically and mentally," he said, "but there might be concerns that if you introduce a bike share program there will be negative consequences. We saw no evidence of that in Philadelphia."
28. What has happened to the number of bicycle-car accidents with the introduction of the bike share program?
A. It has increased.B. It has reduced.
C. It remains the same.D. It is unknown.
29. What is the result of more bikes on the road?
A. Many protected bike lanes have been added.
B. Car drivers are more used to their presence.
C. More people take up bike riding as a healthy activity.
D. Negative consequences have appeared.
30. What happens between Ghassan B. Hamra and the bike share program in Philadelphia?
A. He is in favor of it.B. He disapproves of it.
C. He brought it in.D. He is concerned about it.
31. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. Sharing bikes, cutting accidents B. Problems with sharing bikes
C. Basic construction changes D. Share program in Philadelphia
An ageless question: When is someone 'old'?
What does "old" really mean these days? This isn't a meaningless question— not only does the definition of "old" have an outsized impact on how we feel about ourselves (not to mention how others view us), it also matters to policymakers determining how to plan for aging populations.
The United Nations historically has defined older persons as people 60 years or over (sometimes 65). It didn't matter whether you lived in the United States, China or Senegal, even though life expectancy is quite different in each of those countries. Everyone became old at 60.
Researchers Sergei Scherbov and Warren Sanderson, who study aging, are suggesting overturning the one-size-fits-all-across-the-globe definition of old. Instead, they talk about "prospective age", which looks to the future. Everyone with the same prospective age has the same expected remaining years of life.
Scherbov explained that young and old are relative concepts, and their common reference point is life expectancy. It makes sense that "old" would vary between nations, especially between more-and less-developed countries, with differences in education, death rates, access to health care and life expectancy.
But who is "old" also varies-widely-between individuals. The point, says Scherbov, is that personal age is dependent on our "characteristics"-understanding abilities, disability, health history and even education levels. Those with more education tend not to smoke, exercise more frequently, have better diets and have regular checkups-and, therefore, live longer, meaning the beginning of their old age comes later, says Scherbov.
32. What is the first paragraph mainly about?
A. How do we feel about ourselves?
B. How do others view us?
C. The importance of the definition of "old".
D. The plan for aging populations.
33. What does the underlined phrase "prospective age" in paragraph 3 refer to according to the text?
A. The expected remaining years of one's life.
B. The beginning of one's old age.
C. The differences of our "characteristics".
D. The age when one becomes old.
34. What similarity does Scherbov think young and old have?
A. Understanding abilities.B. Nations.
C. Education.D. The reference point,
35. Which of the following helps one to live longer?
A. As much exercise as possible.B. Losing weight.
C. Studying history.D. Improving the education level.
How to enjoy being a teenager
Being a teenager can be challenging with your hormones going wild. 36 Here are some really useful tips for you to have enjoyable teenage years.
Setting individual expectations.
Everyone is different, especially in their teenage years. 37 Some teens prefer to spend their teenage years with friends, while others prefer to study and work; some prefer to be quiet wallflowers, while others are loud and don't care if they stand out.
For lots of people, the teenage years are full of worries-stop paying so much attention to them! Many worries are based on what other people think, rather than what you think. Go ahead and do what you want to do, without factoring in the opinion of others; choose your own path in life, and don't worry about what others think of your choices! Live it the way you want to.
Work to improve your social skills.
Some teens have trouble with social interaction, with the reasons behind it varying. Since social interaction is necessary in order to succeed, it's important to learn how to cope with shyness and social anxiety. Consider working with a friend or a family member of close age to develop your social skills. 39
Keep good relations with your family.
Many teenagers become bad-tempered, withdrawn, and stop valuing family as much as they used to. Try to avoid this. Family is one of the most important connections in your life. 40 And plus, you see them every day. Why not make it nice to spend time with them?
A. Develop your sense of self.
B. Realize that the teen years are not all alike.
C. Family members-especially parents probably worry about you during your teenage years.
D. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the teen years.
E. It's the building blocks for all relationships you develop.
F. There's really no "way" to enjoy being a teenager except for the "way" you make on your own!
G. It may not replace new social exchanges, but it's good practice.
The Water Angel（天使）
From June to September, the temperature in Phoenix is so high that it can easily hit the century mark. But that doesn't stop hikers（徒步旅行者）from 41 the 1.3-mile hike to the top of the city's famous Camelback Mountain. 42 warn that the path is "extremely difficult." If you continue, 43 a liter（升）of water per person is 44 . And another sign farther up declares: "If you're halfway 45 your water, turn around!"
Unfortunately, many people 46 the warnings. 47 , Scott Cullymore doesn't. When he's not working, the 53-year-old can be 48 hiking up and down Camelback a couple of times a day, giving 49 cold bottles of water to worn-out hikers. He has helped so many hikers that he has 50 a heavenly nickname: the Water Angel.
Cullymore was on Camelback Mountain one day in 2015 when a British 51 died after being lost for nearly six hours in the July 52 . That experience 53 him to start helping people caught unaware by Arizona's 54 form of Mother Nature. If a hiker has a red face and is not sweating anymore, he 55 his backpack（背包）, pulls out a bottle, and hands it to the person.
One hiker who was 56 water says. "You think you know the heat, but then you get out here in the 57 and it surrounds you like a blanket," said Austin Hill, who was hiking with a high school friend. "We were 58 ," he said, pointing to Cullymore. "We 59 into this Good Samaritan here." And with that, the Water Angel leaves in 60 of another hiker in need.

With my homework was finished last Sunday, I went to the countryside to see my grandfather. At about 9, I set off and arrived at my home after an hour. Seen me, he felt very excited and welcomed me warm. I handed him the fresh fruit bought in the supermarket but he gave me some snacks. Then we went to catch fish. It was not long after we caught a lot of fish. Having brought them home, my grandfather cooked some to me. After lunch, I helped him clean the house and he praised me with big smile on his face. When it was time for me to leave, my grandfather gave me some gifts what I liked very much, and hugged me. It was so a beautiful day that I will remember it forever.
