More People Are Leaving the Rat Race for the Simple Life

  Time is more precious than money for an increasing number of people who are choosing to live more with less—and liking it.

  Kay and Charles Giddens, two lawyers, sold their home to start a B&B hotel. Four years later, the couple dishes out banana pancake breakfast, cleans toilets and serves homemade chocolate chip cookies to guests in a B&B hotel surrounded by trees on a hill known for colorful sunsets.

  “Do I miss the freeways? Do I miss the traffic? Do I miss the stress? No,” says Ms. Giddens, “This is a phenomenon that’s fairly widespread. A lot of people are reevaluating their lives and figuring out what they want to do. If their base is being damaged, what’s the payoff?”

  Simple living ranges from cutting down on weeknight activities to sharing housing, living closer to work, avoiding shopping malls, borrowing books from the library instead of buying them, and taking a cut in pay to work at a more pleasurable job.

  Vicki Robin, a writer, lives on a budget equal to a fifth of what she used to make. “You become conscious about where your money is going and how valuable it is,” Ms. Robin says, “You tend not to use things up. You cook at home rather than eat out…”

  Janet Luhrs, a lawyer, quit her job after giving birth and leaving her daughter with a nanny for two weeks. “It was not the way I wanted to raise my kids,” she says, “Simplicity is not just about saving money; it’s about me sitting down every night with my kids to a candlelit dinner with classical music.”

  Mrs. Luhrs now edits a magazine, Simple Living, which publishes tips on how to buy recycled furniture and shoes, organize potluck dinners instead of expensive receptions, and generally how to consume less.

  “It’s not about poverty,” Mrs. Luhrs explains, “It’s about conscious living and creating the life you want. The less stuff you buy, the less money goes out of the door, and the less money you have to earn.”

59. Kay and Charles Giddens sold their home to ______.

Apay off the debt

Bstart a private hotel

Ccut down expenses

Dbuy living necessities

60. Simple living includes ______.

Abuilding a home library

Bliving in the countryside

Cenjoying a colorful night life

Dsharing housing with others

61. It can be learned from the passage that now Janet Luhrs ______.

Aspends more time with her kids

Bhas an interest in classical music

Cworks as a reporter of a magazine

Dhelps people buy recycled clothes

62. How does the author develop the passage?

ABy using figures.

BBy asking questions.

CBy giving examples.

DBy making comparisons.

Showrooming

  One of the biggest challenges facing brick-and-mortar retailers(实体零售店) in recent years has been the “showrooming”. Driven by the desire to get the best prices, many shoppers are now visiting brick-and-mortar stores to personally check on products that interest them, only to leave and then buy the items online. The new trend is forcing retailers to find out new ways to keep consumers from leaving their store for cheaper prices online.

  Recent research found that 40 percent of U.S. shoppers have showroomed previously, with big-box retailers suffering the most. Specifically, the study shows that Best Buy, Walmart and Target are the most likely brick-and-mortar stores to have shoppers test out a product in-store and then purchase it online later, while Amazon is benefiting most from the practice, with nearly 60 percent of shoppers using the online retail giant(巨人) most often to make their showrooming purchases.

  Smartphones have pushed showrooming into the front. Shoppers no longer have to wait until they get home to see if they can find a cheaper price for the products they’re considering buying. With smartphones, consumers can now compare virtual prices, at both other brick-and-mortar stores and online ones while still inside a retail store. If they can find what they’re seeking for less online, the majority will be seeking the first exit. A recent study showed that 45 percent of customers shopping at brick-and-mortar stores walk out and buy their purchase online for a discount of as little as 2.5 percent.

  This puts pressure on retailers to provide both an in-store experience worth staying for and an online presence that can attract shoppers who are showrooming in other businesses.

  To cut down on showrooming, many retailers are adopting new methods to keep shoppers in their stores. Among the steps they’re taking are price-matching guarantees that allow shoppers to pay a discounted price if they find it cheaper online. This ensures that even a showrooming shopper can make the purchase in the store—regardless of whether they find the cheaper price online.

  Another popular method to fight against showrooming is to give shoppers the ability to buy something online and pick it up at the store. This reduces shipping costs and gets customers in the store, where they may be encouraged to make an additional purchase.

  It is also important for businesses to take into consideration what makes shoppers purchase something in-store rather than online, and meet those needs. Research has found that more than 8 in 10 Americans consider being able to take the goods home immediately and the ability to touch and feel them—the most important aspects when deciding to purchase in a store rather than online.

63. According to the passage, a showrooming shopper tends to ______.

Apay for everything online

Bhave better bargaining skills

Crush to buy things in a store

Dpurchase online for a lower price

64. What contributes to the growing popularity of showrooming?

AThe wide use of smartphones.

BThe competition between big stores.

CThe advertisement by online retail giants.

DThe decline of the brick-and-mortar stores.

65. The underlined words “seeking the first exit” in Paragraph 3 probably mean ______.

Asearching for lower prices

Bleaving as soon as possible

Clocating the first exit quickly

Dmaking a purchase on the spot

66. The last three paragraphs mainly talk about ways of ______.

Aincreasing sales at stores

Bpreventing purchase online

Csatisfying customers’ needs

Dadvising shoppers to buy more

Traveler

  My fifteen-year-old son has just returned from abroad with rolls of exposed film and a hundred dollars in uncashed traveler’s checks, and is asleep at the moment. His blue duffel(粗呢) bag lies on the floor where he dropped it. Obviously, he postponed as much sleep as he could: when he walked in and we hugged, his electrical system suddenly switched off, and he headed directly for the bed, where I imagine he beat his old record of sixteen hours.

  It was his first trip overseas, so weeks before it, I pressed travel books on him, and a tape cassette of useful French phrases; drew up a list of people to visit; advised him on clothing and other things. At the luggage store where we went to buy him a suitcase, he headed for the duffels, saying that suitcases were more for old people.

  During the trip, he called home three times: from London, Paris, and a village named Ullapool. Near Ullapool, he climbed a mountain in a rainstorm that almost blew him off. In the village, a man spoke to him in Gaelic, and, too polite to interrupt, my son listened to him for ten or fifteen minutes, trying to nod in the right places. The French he learned from the cassette didn’t hold water in Paris. The French he talked to shrugged and walked on.

  When my son called, I sat down at the kitchen table and leaned forward and hung on every word. His voice came through clearly, though two of the calls were like ship-to-shore communication. When I interrupted him with a “Great!” or a “Really?”, I knocked a little hole in his communication. So I just sat and listened. I have never listened to a telephone so attentively and with so much pleasure. It was wonderful to hear news from him that was so new to me. In my book, he was the first man to land on the moon, and I knew that I had no advice to give him and that what I had already given was probably not much help.

  The unused checks are certainly evidence of that. Youth travels light. No suitcase, not much luggage and a slim expense account, and yet he went to the scene, and came back safely. I sit here amazed. The night when your child returns with dust on his shoes from a country you’ve never seen is a night you would gladly turn into a week.

67. During the trip, the author’s son ______.

Aran out of money

Bhad inadequate sleep

Cforgot to call his mother

Dfailed to take good pictures

68. According to the passage, which of the following could best describe the author’s son?

APolite and careless.

BCreative and stubborn.

CConsiderate and independent.

DSelf-centered and adventurous.

69. What does the underlined word “that” in the last paragraph refer to?

AIt is important to listen to your child’s story.

BIt’s easy to interrupt the chat with your child.

CThe author is proud of her son landing on the moon.

DThe son no longer needs much help from his mother.

70. What can we infer from the passage?

AGood parents should protect their children from potential dangers.

BThe world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.

CIt’s a win-win choice to give a child space to experience and explore.

DCommunication between parents and children is extremely important.

Trampolining

  What’s more fun than standing still? Jumping up and down on a springy piece of fabric (织物)! This activity is known as trampolining and it’s sweeping the nation. 

  The idea of trampolining is ancient. Eskimos have been throwing each other in the air for thousands of years. Firemen began using a life net to catch people jumping from buildings in 1887.  71  

  A gymnast named George Nissan and his coach Larry Griswold made the first modern trampoline in 1936. They got the idea by watching swing artists bouncing off of a tight net at the circus. They named their equipment after the Spanish word trampolín, which means diving board.  72   In 1942 they began making trampolines to sell to the public.   

     73   Experts find that more than 100,000 people hurt themselves while using one each year. Clubs and gyms use large safety nets or other equipment to make it safer. Most trampoline injuries happen at home. Since trampolines are more affordable than ever, injuries are even more common.

  These injuries happen for many reasons. People may bounce too high and land off of the trampoline or onto the springs.  74   Perhaps the worst injuries happen when untrained people try to do flips (快速翻转). Landing on your neck or head can cause injuries or even kill you.

  But don’t let all that bad news keep you down. There are many things that you can do to practice safe trampolining. Trampolines have been around for a while now. They have brought a lot of joy to many people. They can be a good source of exercise and activity.  75   But they can also be deadly. It is important to follow some professional guidance. Be sure that you are practicing safety while having a good time. Happy bouncing!

针对各个小题话术:分析句意/联系上下文(具体指出联系哪句话)可知,此处选择X选项。

A. They can help people improve their balance and moves.

B. Trampolines may be fun, but they can also be dangerous.

C. The men wanted to share their idea with the whole world.

D. Injuries also happen when many people are jumping at the same time.

E. You can surround your trampoline with a net so that people don’t fall off of it. 

F. They found a winner when they performed a piece of spring across a steel frame.

G. And in the early 1900s, circus performers began bouncing off of netting to amuse audiences.

Insight Without Sight

  At the age of eighteen I couldn’t wait to get my first job, which meant I made the first step toward adulthood.

  But it was difficult to get a work permit. One day I was dropped off by my parents at the , where applicants took their physical tests for work permits. Although I had night blindness, my vision was clearer during the day, which helped me walk   by myself. Then the doctor began the  . He looked into my eyes with a bright light. “I     your parents take you to an eye specialist,”he said,“I suspect you have a retinal(视网膜) disease. If you do, you’ll never   a day in your life…”

  My parents did take me to specialists. After much time and money spent seeking an     result, it was determined that I had an eye disease that slowly   a person of sight. But still, during daylight, I could walk without   . I could read, but not for hours. My eyes began to  and words slipped off the page when I read more than a few pages. However, no matter how tired my eyes became, I never gave up reading. I knew the    of great writers as well as I knew the most popular music stars. Their words were powerful, which    me to try writing. Soon writing brought me a lot of     each time I completed a paper.

  Then an important phone call from an editor changed my life. An article I    appeared in a local newspaper. The newspaper, to my   , continued to print my work. Next, a book series published several of my essays. I got interested in writing and  up with each acceptance. On the pages, readers never knew of my blindness    I chose to present it. For me, finding my voice through writing gave me the pride and satisfaction I    so many years ago. Now, I have numerous essays and articles in     .

  Should I be thanking that misguided doctor? By falsely predicting that I could never work a day, he fueled my     into success. He set the bar too  and focused on what I wouldn’t be able to do. Yet I proved what I could do.
