Mother never buys expensive dresses for herself, but she often buys some inexpensive but high quality, clothes for us. She just eats a plain meal outside when she is too busy to cook herself. She lives a busy yet simple life, without any complaints.
Often she says to us, “work while you work, and play while you play. That is the way to be happy and gay. If you do not work, you will become lazy and be of no use to society”.

Animal training refers to teaching animals specific responses to specific conditions or stimuli (刺激). Training may be for the purpose of companionship, detection, protection, entertainment or all of the above. An animal trainer may use various forms of reinforcement (强化) or punishment to condition an animal's responses. There are many ways to train animals and as a general rule no legal requirements or certifications (证书) are required. Chickens
Training chickens has become a way for trainers of other animals (primarily dogs) to perfect their training technique. Bob Bailey, former director of Animal Behavior Enterprises and the IQ Zoo, teaches in chicken training courses where trainers teach chickens to tell different shapes, to navigate an obstacle course and to chain behaviors together.
Fish can also be trained. For example, a goldfish may swim toward its owner and follow him as he walks through the room, but will not follow anyone else. The fish may swim up and down, signaling the owner to turn on its aquarium (鱼缸) light when it is off, and it will skim the surface until its owner feeds it. Pet goldfish have also been taught to perform more complicated tasks, such as doing the limbo (a kind of dance) and pushing a miniature soccer ball into a net.
Among all animals, they are the third cleverest — monkeys, dolphins and pigs. Scientists think the training of pigs is easier than the training of dogs and cats. Pigs have a very good sense of smell. They can find things nearby or faraway. They can also help the police to find out drugs at an airport or at a train station.(1)、Which is true according to the passage?A、Most people train animals because they need friends.

I lived in a big city. It's noisy arid dirty and I got very tired. At the weekends I like to leave the city and get some fresh air and a good rest. A few weekends ago I decided to see my parents. I was really looking forward to it.
My parents live a long way away. I went to see them with James, a friend, and we drove down on Friday night. In the middle of the trip it began to rain. The roads became very wet and it was difficult to drive. We arrived home just after midnight, feeling tired. The next morning it was still raining. James took his car to the local garage which was very good.
In the afternoon the weather became better. We wanted to go for a drive. My parents lent us their car. That was no good. Their car didn't work! We rang the garage. “Oh, no.” they said, “your car won't be ready until tomorrow.” So it wasn't possible to go for a drive. We decided to play a word game. When we didn't agree about a word we looked for a dictionary. It wasn't there. Suddenly my mother remembered. “I lent it to your sister. She took it with her when she left.” The word game wasn't any good without a dictionary.

Recently, as the development of the Internet, there is a kind of language called the Web Language. Our class had a discussion about if we should welcome to the Web Language the other day. Forty percent of the students think it ridiculously. In their opinions, it does no good to helping people communicate, nor is it useful for learning English. Besides, it'll make Chinese less standard, finally ruined our mother tongue. However, sixty percent of our class is fond of it. We think that it is simple, convenient, and helpful in expressing their thoughts. Personally, it's not good habit to use the Web Language. It may be popular, but you may also make yourself be misunderstand.

Smile at others. Make it a goal to smile at one person a day. It can be anybody, and it can be the most subtle(微妙的) of smile. A quick glance paired with a smile---then run away if you want!Eventually, you will want to get to a point where you smile instinctively whenever you make first eye contact with someone.
Ask people questions. The standard ”how are you?” doesn't really count, because people use it as a greeting rather than a real questionThis is where the curiosity and interest in others come into play.

Students taking Georgia Tech's online Knowledge-Based Artificial Intelligence course received some surprising news. Jill Watson one of the nine teaching assistants(TAs) that had helped them finish the challenging course for the past five months was not a ‘‘she'' but an “it”—an intelligent robot!
Watson is the brainchild of Ashok Goel, who teaches the popular online course. The Professor-of Computer and Cognitive Science in the School of Interactive Computing came up with the idea as a way to deal with a number of questions posed by students in the online forums(论坛). According to Goel, every time the course is offered, the 300 or so students that enroll post over 10,000 questions which are often repetitive. This led Goel to wonder if a smart robot would handle the questions which require standard responses.
Having worked' with IBM's Watson technology platform in the, the professor knew it would be ideal for his artificial TA: Jill Watson. The artificial intelligence system that uses natural language processing and machine learning to analyze large amounts of data has even been cleverer than human competitors on the television show. It would therefore easily be able to handle routine questions that required little “thinking”.
The professor and his team of graduate students began by populating Jill's memory with 40,000 questions and answers from past terms. Then came the testing stage. At first, Jill was not very good and often gave strange answers. It often got stuck on certain keywords. By the end of the semester, Jill had attained enough knowledge and skills to participate in forums without any management from Goel, or the other assistants.(1)、What surprised the students who take the online course?A、The course was interesting but challenging B、A teaching assistant wasn't a real person C、Jill Watson is a hard-working TA D、They all failed to pass their course(2)、Why did Goel decide to invent a smart robot?A、A number of students took his online course B、A smart robot is cleverer than a human being C、Too many similar questions are to be dealt with D、A smart robot could be easily controlled by him(3)、Why are human competitors mentioned in Paragraph 3?A、To criticize present TV shows B、To describe Watson's operating principle C、To express the system's advancement D、To show the robot's maximum load(4)、What's Goel's attitude towards Jill Watson?A、Cautious B、Critical C、Expectant D、Satisfied
Hollywood's only Chinese-American superhero has stirred up heated debate on social media after she spoke out against discrimination in American show business.
Chloe Bennet, a Chinese-American actress who stars in Marvel's trending TV series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., explained on social media why she changed her last name from Wong to Bennet, arguing that Hollywood is “racist” and wouldn't cast her with a last name that made them “uncomfortable.”
“Changing my last name doesn't change the fact that my BLOOD is half Chinese, that I lived in China, speak Mandarin, or that I was culturally raised both American and Chinese,” replied Bennet.
Bennet's remarks come after Ed Skrein stepped down from his role as Major Ben Daimion in the upcoming Hellboy movie for fear that his participation would be “whitewashing” a character of Asian descent(后裔).
Racial barriers have been an essential problem in Hollywood. According to research conducted by the University of Southern California in 2015, nearly three-quarters of all characters in the top 100 films of 2014 were white, while only 5.3 percent of Asian artists can share the same privilege. In another report released in 2017, only 3.4 percent of over 1,000 surveyed films had an Asian director.
“Asian artists can hardly stand out in Hollywood. Most roles starred by Asians are fixed and stereotyped, as if all Asians are good at math and martial arts. There is an invisible discrimination lurking(潜伏) in show business, as the difference of your skin color may bring disparity in your income and opportunities,” said Alex She, a New York-based Chinese-American photographer and movie maker.
Bennet's experience has led to heated debate on both Chinese and foreign social media.(1)、What's the best title of the passage?A、Racial discrimination worsens in Hollywood B、Chinese-American actress voices for equal rights in Hollywood C、Chinese-American actress changed her name D、Chinese-American actress makes a fame in Hollywood(2)、Why did Chloe Bennets change her last name?A、Because she doesn't like it B、Because her parents suggested it C、Because using an English name is a trend in Hollywood D、Because the racism in Hollywood's show business made her no choice(3)、Which of the following words can best describe Chloe Bennet?A、brave and courageous B、selfish and cocky C、stubborn and aggressive D、overcautious and timid(4)、What may be discussed next according to the passage?A、Netizens' support to Bennet's works B、Netizens' opinion on Bennet's experience C、Bennet's achievement in Hollywood D、Bennet's family background
The main hall of a 135-year old temple in Shanghai will be moved 30 meters to its north in order to create more space for visitors. Thousands of people gather and see the moving of the temple that started on Saturday.
The Mahavira Hall, of Shanghai's Jade Buddha Temple, was built in 1882. The temple in downtown Shanghai attracts more than two million visitors a year. Daily visitors can reach as high as 100,000.
A major renovation project started in 2014. The moving of the temple started on Saturday and is set to be finished in two weeks. The main hall of the temple will be relocated 30.66 meters northward within the temple and elevated 1.05 meters.
Master Jue Xing, abbot of the Jade Buddha Temple and vice president of the Buddhist Association of China, said moving the hall will create more space between buildings and reduce the risks of a stampede as the temple is usually tightly packed.
Buddhist statues and relics in the hall will also be moved together with the hall, he said.
Workers pumped cement into the foundation of the hall because the old building's foundation was rather soft, he said.
Statues and other relics in the building were stabilized and protected with frames to avoid damage, he said.
The moving will be carried out with the help of relic preservation experts from the Shanghai Museum, he said.
Shanghai has had several successful projects to move old buildings, including a school in 2009 and a concert hall in 2002. On Aug. 31st, Shanghai Concert Hall began to move 66.46 meters northward after the last concert was held in the previous location and reopened to audience two years later. The moving was recognized as a wonder of construction protection and inspired the experts of the moving of the the Mahavira Hall.(1)、Which of the following job will not be done?A、The temple will be relocated about 30 meters northward B、Buddhist statues and relics in the hall will be moved together C、The foundation of the hall will be strengthened with cerement D、Statues and relics in the hall will be stabilized with frames(2)、What can be inferred from the passage?A、The Jade Temple of Shanghai attracts 100,000. visitors every year B、The major renovation project completed in 2014 C、Moving the hall is to make more space for visiting and to reduce the risks of stampede D、Shanghai have had some successful experience of moving buildings(3)、Which column on the the website is the article from?A、Science and technology B、culture C、Travel D、Life and Health

I am interesting in spiders (蜘蛛), so this summer I watched them for quite long lime. Spiders don't look beautifully, but they have their own way of killing flying insects. They often build “bridges” between branch. They climb up a branch slowly, pulling some silk. Then they pull the silk towards another branch. When they built many “bridges”, they begin to form webs. As long as insects happen to touch the webs, no matter what hard they try, they can't escape. One day, there was a stronger wind, and the webs were broken, but the spiders still went on to building their “bridges”. They are not afraid with difficulties. As students, we should learn from it.
