After all of these years, I still remember my first moment of kindness. It was the first day of kindergarten. I walked in with my mom and was 1 at all the toys against the walls. I 2 ran over to play. Most of the other kids were doing the same.
In the corner 3, I saw one girl, sitting by herself. She was small and looked 4. She was the only one in the class shorter than me. Her 5 eyes looked like she had been crying. None of the other children seemed to 6 her there.
I went back to 7 the toy cars but after a minute, I looked up at her again. She seemed so 8. Something inside started to stir(搅动). After a moment, I 9 two of the toy cars and 10 her. "Do you want to play?" I asked. She smiled and 11 her head yes.

Buddy or Friendship Benches (长椅)are needed because playgrounds can be lonely places sometimes. When a school places the bench, they teach a little lesson to the kids on how it is to be used. Then when a child sits on the bench, it sends out a message to others that basically says, " Hey, I'm alone right now and would welcome the company (陪伴) of others." Kids in the playground see this and from their training, they see there is a fellow student in need. They are encouraged to come over and sit on the bench and make a new friend.
Benches like this have been around for a while now in many schools. But in Ireland, they are trying to do something different with them. This school in Cork in the south of Ireland is the 247th to get benches from a social organization called "Buddy Bench Ireland" that doesn't just provide schools with benches, but also runs special projects with trained child psychiatrists (精神病专家).They use the bench as an opportunity to start conversations about mental health. They talk about the importance of knowing and understanding your feelings and those of others.
Judith Ashton, a co-founder of Buddy Bench Ireland said, "The children need to understand what the bench is about, what it represents —friendship, understanding, listening to each other and the most important thing is that it's important to express feelings."
But do children really use the bench? It's a matter of great public concern. Sinead Mcgilloway from Maynooth University carried out a study and said, " We found that 40% of the children told us that they had actually used the benches at the time of the study. And over 90% said that they would talk to a child if that child was sitting on the bench. So, there's nothing to worry about.
Children's mental health and safety at school is increasingly a concern in many countries. In Ireland, they're hoping these benches will not only tackleproblems like school violence and school bullying (校园暴力和校园欺凌), but also give students the confidence to open up about their feelings.(1)、According to the passage, buddy benches might _________.A、make students feel relaxed B、help students feeling lonely to find friends C、be a symbol of psychology classes D、appear in schools filled with problem children(2)、The organization "Buddy Bench Ireland" _________.A、makes buddy benches more popular B、brings more new-pattern benches to schools C、encourages more students to choose buddy benches D、provides psychological care projects along(3)、In Judith Ashton's opinion, what students most need to know is _________.A、how to understand each other B、what buddy benches are about C、the importance of expressing themselves D、the necessity of listening to their friends(4)、From what Sinead Mcgilloway said, we can know that _________.A、60% of the children in the study disliked these benches B、over 90% of the children in the study once felt lonely C、he once worried about children with mental problems D、the public don't have to worry about the use of buddy benches(5)、What does the underlined word "tackle" mean?A、Deal with. B、Check out. C、Keep a record of. D、Leave out.14. 阅读理解
For 63 percent of Americans, coffee is one of their daily essentials. This number has been this high since 2017, according to the National Coffee Association. The rise of coffee is due to its numerous benefits like preventing DNA damage, but it works best if you do this simple thing first: Eat.
"Drinking coffee on an empty stomach, or early in the morning before you've had breakfast, can raise the level of cortisol (皮质醇) in your body. From the moment you open your eyes in the morning, your body starts releasing cortisol. It's a hormone (激素) that's responsible for ruling your immune response, metabolism (新陈代谢), and stress response," says Dr. Nikola Djordjevic, MD.
"If you pump your body with caffeine(咖啡因) when your cortisol is at its peak," Djordjevic says, "you'll be forcing your body to bear even more stress." In a study that evaluated preference for caffeinated drinks among medical students, it's shown that 25 percent of students drank coffee in the morning on an empty stomach.
These students are at an increased risk of mood changes and possible long-term effects on their health, as explained in the study. "Drinking coffee on an empty stomach can greatly encourage the acid in your stomach, producing a more acidic environment," says Dr. Jamie Long, a licensed clinical psychologist. Thus, a full stomach is important to control the amount of stomach acid produced.
Since coffee increases your stomach acid, you're highly likely to experience heartburn and even develop gastric ulcers (胃溃疡), Djordjevic says. Clearly, drinking coffee on an empty stomach affects physical health. But it does harm to mental health, too. The overproduction of acid in the stomach can cause mood swings, nervousness, shaking and other withdrawal symptoms (症状). "And if you've already had the sign of experiencing anxiety, you're even more possible to be attacked by the effects of coffee," says Long.
Base line: Know your limits so you can fully experience what coffee can offer, because here's exactly what happens to your body when you drink coffee daily.(1)、What does the underlined word "it" in Paragraph 1 refer to？A、The coffee. B、The DNA damage. C、The stomach. D、The National Coffee Association.(2)、What does the author tell us about coffee in Paragraph 2？A、It can help to reduce our stress. B、It will slow down our metabolism. C、It might contain some kind of hormone. D、It may increase the cortisol in our bodies.(3)、What do Dr. Nikola Djordjevic's words in Paragraph 3 imply?A、Cortisol in the body is at a high level in the morning. B、75 percent of the medical students dislike coffee. C、Medical students usually suffer more stress. D、Most people drink coffee in the afternoon.(4)、According to Djordjevic and Long, the over- production of stomach acid can ______.A、be good for our hearts B、make us feel less hungry C、relieve our nervousness and anxiety D、harm our physical and mental health(5)、What can be the best title for this text?A、Why so many Americans are coffee lovers. B、What you can do to keep your stomach healthy. C、Why you shouldn't drink coffee on an empty stomach. D、How you can control the level of cortisol in your body.

If you seek happiness, then you need to know what happiness is for you. I don't believe there is one universal definition of happiness. Happiness is a very subjective emotion, according to me. Put two people in identical situations: same amount of money, life experiences. etc. and you can be pretty sure that they both wouldn't feel equally happy or equally sad. I believe this is so because there are two kinds of happiness. There is one kind of happiness, which is kind of universal and then there is the other kind, which is very individual to each one of us. It is this kind of happiness that I find more interesting.
The second kind of happiness that I talk about comes from our expectations out of our lives, which vary from person to person. For example, a person who expects a lot out of his or her life may find that happiness is hard to find. They are constantly in search of these things in life, which always seem to elude (逃避) them. Those things may be money or fame or power or any of the other pursuits (追求) that humans have, but it would be likely that such people are less likely to be happy, if their goals are not met. In most cases, even after their goals are met, they don't find happiness, because they seek more--- new goals, new wish lists, and it's a seemingly never- ending process for them!
On the other hand, a person who takes life as it comes along and makes the best of each day is more likely to be happy every day. They have no pressure or goals to occupy their minds and they can achieve happiness from the simple pleasures of everyday life, finding love, making time for the family and kids, seeing their kids grow, etc. Of course, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't have any expectations at all. You should keep those expectations reasonable and manageable.(1)、What does the author want to tell us in the first paragraph? (no more than 10 words)(2)、What do the underlined words "these things" in Paragraph 2 probably refer to? (no more than 5 words)(3)、Why don't some people still feel happy even if their goals are met? (no more than 10 words)(4)、In the author' opinion, what kind of people are likely to be happy? (no more than 16 words)(5)、What is happiness to you? What will you do to achieve your happiness? (no more than 20 words)
