A China’s face-swapping app that allows users to superimpose（叠加）their own likeness over characters in movies or TV shows has rapidly become one of the country’s most download apps.But it has also triggered concerns about the issue of privacy.
Released on Friday, the Zao app went viral as Chinese users pursued the chance to act out scenes from well-known movies. This is done using “deepfake” technology, which has already caused concerns elsewhere over its potential misuse.
Users provide a series of selfies in which they blink, open their mouths or assume other expressions. The app will then realistically change the person’s animated likeness onto movies, TV shows or other similar content.
But this has also resulted in privacy concerns as the app’s policy reportedly gave it “free, permanent, transferable, and re-licenseable” rights to all user-generated content.
Apart from worrying that their personal information can be disclosed, users are also concerned that the app, through facial recognition technology, can compromise their online payment accounts.
Zao is owned by Momo Inc, a Tinder-like Chinese dating service that is listed on the Us Nasdaq. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology spoke to the developer of the AI face-changing app on Wednesday. The Ministry’s department of network security said it demanded the company sick to relevant laws regarding the collection of personal information. Apart from calling on the company to standardize its terms of agreement it also made it clear that the company should do its utmost to ensure the protection of user data.
24. What’s the main idea of this passage?
A. The face-changing app is becoming popular.
B. The Zao app has revealed personal information.
C. Deep fake technology is applied in a new app.
D. There’re potential worries about face-changing app.
25. What do we know about the Zao app?
A. Users provide smiling photos to act out scenes from famous movies.
B. The app can find likeness between users and actors in the movies.
C. The technology applied in the app can be misused in other places.
D. The app can have access to users’ online payment accounts.
26. What did the app promise to modify?
C. Any private content deleted by users
D. The compromise with users' accounts
27. What The Ministry's department of network security said in the last paragraph is to _______.
A. give some possible solutions to the problem
B. give some particular reasons for the phenomenon
C. present some current difficulties of the concern
D. present some simple tips on payment accounts
Delivery Robots May Soon Be Knocking at Your Door
With self-driving vehicle technology rapidly advancing, many companies are turning to autonomous robots for the final leg-the so-called last mile-of the delivery process, from the store or local distribution center to the customer. The latest to join the trend is Amazon. ollowing a successful eight-month test run in Snohomish County, Washington, the company’s Scout robots have been making the rounds of Irvine, California, since August 6, 2019.
The six-wheeled Scout is about the size of a large cooler with the ability to carry small or medium-sized packages. The battery-powered vehicle, which moves at a regular walking pace, has been programmed to avoid pedestrians, animals, and unexpected obstacles（障碍）, such as garbage cans. Its powerful sensors（传感器）can also detect the movement of a car backing out of a driveway.
While Amazon is focusing on home deliveries, San Francisco-based Starship Technologies has its eyes set on universities. On August 20, 2019, the company announced plans to use thousands of robots to deliver food and other things to students at college campuses across the country. Unlike Scout, Starship’s robots are seasoned workers. They have been tested in over 100 cities in 20 different countries and successfully completed over 100, 000 deliveries.
Meanwhile, food and grocery delivery company Postmates’ robots are currently making their rounds along the busy San Francisco streets. Also in testing, the robots can carry up to 50 pounds and travel 30 miles on a single battery charge.
Though the eco-friendly robots will help free our streets of bicycles and large delivery trucks that typically send packages, they have some limitations. They are unable to climb stairs or open gates, which means that they can only reach consumers who live on the ground level. Additionally,
the robots are unable to leave packages at the front door if the customers are not home. Whether these problems get solved remains to be seen. For now, it appears that humans will still be needed to meet the ever-growing demand for home and office deliveries.
28. What does the underlined part in para l mean?
A. much more helpB. very close distance
C. substitute for humanD. the last section
29. We can learn from the passage that ________
A. Powerful robots sensors are gaining popularity in delivery.
B. The Postmates’ robots focus on students' food and grocery delivery.
C. The Scout can avoid obstacles because it moves at a regular pace.
D. Delivery robots have turned up in universities to serve students.
30.What’s author’s attitude towards delivery robots？
A. ObjectiveB. Optimistic C. PessimisticD. Cautious
31.From which is the text probably taken？
A. a biology textbookB. a health magazine
C. a newspaperD. a travel brochure
I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association because we all know the press is under siege these days. We also know it’s the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and to injustice. To---to tyrants and victims, and secrets and lies.I want to say that I value the press more than ever before as we try to navigate these complicated times, which brings me to this: what I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I’m especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories. Each of us in this room are celebrated because of the stories that we tell, and this year we became the story.
But it’s not just a story affecting the entertainment industry. It’s one that transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics, or workplace. So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue.
They’re the women whose names we’ll never know. They are domestic workers and farm workers. They are working in factories and they work in restaurants and they’re in academia, engineering, medicine, and science. They’re part of the world of tech and politics and business.
They’re our athletes in the Olympics and they’re our soldiers in the military.
And there’s someone else. Recy Taylor, a name I know and I think you should know, too. In
1944. Recy Taylor was a young wife and mother walking home from a church service she’d attended in Abbeville, Alabama, when she was abducted by six armed white men, raped, and left blindfolded by the side of the road coming home from church.
They threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone, but her story was reported to the NAACP where a young worker by the name of Rosa Parks became the lead investigator on her case and together they sought justice. But justice wasn’t an option in the era of Jim Crow. The men who tried to destroy her were never persecuted.
Recy Taylor died ten days ago, just shy of her 98th birthday. She lived as we all have lived, too many years in a culture broken by brutally powerful men. For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.
And I just hope--I just hope that Recy Taylor died knowing that her truth, like the truth of so many other women who were tormented in those years, and even now tormented, goes marching on. It was somewhere in Rosa Parks’ heart almost 11 years later, when she made the decision to stay seated on that bus in Montgomery, and it’s here with every woman who chooses to say, “Me too.” And every man--every man who chooses to listen.
In my career, what I’ve always tried my best to do, whether on television or through film, is to say something about how men and women really behave. To say how we experience shame, how we love and how we rage, how we fail, how we retreat, persevere and how we overcome.
I’ve interviewed and portrayed people who’ve withstood some of the ugliest things life can throw at you, but the one quality all of them seem to share is an ability to maintain hope for a brighter morning, even during our darkest nights.
So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon! And when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say “Me too” again.

Why is the world’s population growing? 36 The reason for the explosion is not that people have been reproducing like rabbits, but that people have stopped dropping dead like flies. In 1900, people died at the average age of 30. By 2000 the average age was 65. But while increasing health was a typical feature of the 20th century, declining birth rate could be a defining one of the 21st.
Statistics show that the average number of births per woman has fallen from 4.9 in the early 1960s to 2.5 nowadays. Furthermore, around 50% of the world’s population live in regions where the figure is now below the replacement level（i.e.2.1 births per woman）and almost all developed nations are experiencing sub-replacement birth rate. 37 But you’d be wrong, declining birth rate is a major problem in many developing regions too, which might cause catastrophic global shortages of work force within a few decades.
38 What does it imply？First, China needs to undergo rapid economic development before a population decline hits the country. Second, if other factors such as technology remain constant, economic growth and material expectations will fall well below recent standards and this could invite trouble.
Russia is another country with population problems that could break its economic promise. Since 1992 the number of people dying has been bigger than that of those being born by a massive
50%, Indeed official figures suggest the country has shrunk by 5% since 1993 and people in Russia live a shorter life now than those in 1961. 39 Nobody is quite sure, but poor diet an above all long-time alcoholism have much to do with it. If current trends don’t bend. Russia’s population will be about the size of Yemen’s by the year 2050.
40 As for the USA, it is almost unique among developed nations in having a population that is expected to grow by 20% from 2010-2030. Moreover, the USA has a track record of successfully accepting immigrants. As a result it’s likely to see a rise in the size of its working-age population and to witness strong economic growth over the longer term.
A. Why is this occurring?
B. How to solve this problem?
C. The answer is not what you might think.
D. You might think that developing nations would make up the loss.
E. One solution is obviously to import foreign workers via immigration.
F. A great decline in young work force is likely to occur in China, for instance.
G. In 2030,a sixth of the country’s potential work force could be tally uneducated.

假如你是如皋某中学的英语老师Su Hua, 你给某国际学校推荐名学生(Li Jiang)。请根据所给提示给国际学校写一封推荐信。(100 字左右)
1.竭力向国际学校推荐学生Li Jiang,介绍Li Jiang的基本情况;
One day, the Mullah, an important man in the village, found his donkey was gone when he wanted to go visit a friend. He was very angry and ran around to look for his donkey.
The Mullah ran about looking until he was too tired. He sat down to rest at his gate. A few friends came to join him.
“That no-good lazy donkey!” said he. "If I ever see her again, I’ll sell her for a dollar!" Selling a donkey for a dollar was just a joke.
Just then the Mullah heard the sound of his donkey’s feet. He looked around.There was his donkey.On her back rode a boy,
"Where did you find her?" asked the Mullah. "We couldn’t find her anywhere."
"I knew where I would go if I were a donkey," said the boy. "I found her eating grass with the
sheep and goats."
Suddenly, the Mullah looked to one side and saw one of his friends holding up a dollar. On the other side he saw another with a dollar.
"I’ll buy your donkey, " said the two.
"I was joking!" said the Mullah.
"You didn’t sound as if you were joking, " said the two.
The Mullah couldn’t break his word. That would be wrong for an important person in the village. He certainly didn’t want to sell his donkey for a dollar. So he said, "Meet me at the donkey fair on
Saturday. I shall sell her at that time. I shall sell my donkey to the one who will treat her most kindly."
Everybody was kind to animals in the village.
So the Mullah thought out a plan.
My donkey and my cat are very good friends.
