第一节  阅读理解(共15小题;每小题2分,满分30分)

    阅读下列短文,从每题所给的四个选项(A、B、C和D)中,选出最佳选项。

                                A

        When I recently revealed to my friends, colleagues, and family members that I would be moving my family to Israel, the reactions were numerous and varied. Some people said it was an expected thing while others asked: Why now? What will you do?

        For me, making the move to Israel is the fulfillment of a dream that has lasted for my 47 years of life. I have always known that Israel is my home. Over the years Israel has been in my heart, but I have found a number of reasons to put off making it my permanent residence: kids, the economy, education… you name an excuse, and at some point I have probably used it.

        Truthfully, I believe that I was always just a little bit scared. And of course I still am, with the fear factor that is reported by the press surrounding the Israeli military and economy. However, it has come to the point when I have realized that for over 2000 years we have longed for this land, and that for 47 years I have denied the opportunity to make it my home. I am finally ready to fully grasp this opportunity.

        Over the years, I have always loved visiting Israel. I have traveled there with my family, and enjoyed introducing thousands of travelers to the country. I have come to love all of these things about Israel as a tourist because I get to love my home. And as far as waiting for the “perfect” condition under which to make a decision, I believe the time is now!

        I have been asked many times if I am nervous about moving to Israel. Before I answer, I remember that we have overcome the Greeks, the Romans, the Russian killings, Hitler and the Holocaust(大屠杀),and the armies of seven countries.

        How can I not feel confident that I, and my family, will overcome any difficulty that may come our way? I am not worrying, complaining, crying, or fearing. I am proud and excited to say that I am fulfilling a 47-year-old dream: I am going home.

What does the author want to say in the passage?

AHis dream is to come true after 47 years.

BIt is a dilemma for him to return to Israel.

CHe didn’t live a happy life in Israel.

DIt is a latest trend to fulfill everyone’s dream.

        Many of the world’s most successful people were once successful failures. Here are the stories of a few of them.

        Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

        Abraham Lincoln was one of America’s greatest leaders, taking the country through the Civil War (from 1860 to 1865). However, his life was never easy. He started numerous businesses that failed, he went bankrupt twice, and was defeated in 26 campaigns for public office. He later said, “My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure.”

        Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890)

        Van Gogh is one of the most famous and influential painters in the history of Western Art. He’s renowned for paintings such as The Starry Night, The potato Eaters and Sunflowers. However, during his lifetime, Van Gogh sold only one painting for a very small amount of money. Despite this, he carried on painting, sometimes even going without food so he could complete his collection of over 800 known works.

        Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

        Albert Einstein won the Noble Prize in Physics in 1921. However, he wasn’t always considered a genius. He didn’t speak until he was four, and couldn’t read until he was seven. His teachers and parents thought he was slow, so he was expelled from school and couldn’t get into the Zurich Polytechnic School. He later famously said, “Success is failure in progress.”

        Stephen King (born 1947)

        Stephen King is one of the best-selling authors of all time, but his first book, Carrie, was rejected by about 30 publishers. Eventually, Stephen threw it into the bin, but his wife fished it out and encouraged him to resubmit it, which he did and succeeded this time!

Which statement is true about Abraham Lincoln?

AHe led the American War of Independence.

BHe never succeeded in his business.

CHe was full of courage and perseverance.

DHe is the greatest president of the United States.

        Electricity bills can be highly expensive and the power we consume comes at an even greater cost to the environment when you consider that over 85% of the electricity produced in the United States comes from fuels. Whether you’re concerned about cleaning up the environment or you simply want to reduce your electricity bill,residential wind power generators(发电机)could be a solution.

        Producing wind power at home will not work for everyone. If you live in an over-populated residential area,there may be certain laws and zoning requirements that prohibit the use of windmills (风车). If you live on 1 acre of land or more, you probably won’t have any issues but you should investigate carefully to make sure that wind power generators are both legal and practical where you live. Even if there are no laws or regulations prohibiting wind power generators you still need to be in a location that gets enough wind on a regular basis.

        Some producers of wind generators recommend that you live in an area with wind speeds that average at least 10 mph. Newer models have been developed recently that can operate with wind speeds as low as 4 mph but maximum efficiency is achieved at higher wind speeds. Before you fix a wind powered system, you will have to determine your power requirements. Will you be using it to charge a small battery for a boat or vehicle or will you need enough power to run your entire household and be completely off the grid (电网)?Once you know what your power requirements are,you can start shopping around for a system that can meet those needs.

        Wind power generators are a great solution for a lot of people. They’re an ideal solution for remote locations where it would be impractical or simply too expensive to tap into the grid. They are quiet and totally clean,producing no pollution. They require no fuel and very little maintenance. Residential wind power offers a lot of benefits but it’s not for everyone. You’ll have to have some money up front to pay for the system and equipment; however, you could save quite a bit of money if you’re able to do much of the work yourself. You’ll also need to live in an area that gets enough wind to make the equipment worthwhile. You’ll need to do your homework before you make a purchase, but wind power generators could be a great solution for producing clean, low-cost energy.

What is the main idea of the first paragraph?

AElectricity bills can be highly expensive.

BMost of the electricity in the US comes from fuels.

CGenerating electricity does harm to the environment.

DResidential wind power generators are useful.

        Two graduates from Cambridge University in the United Kingdom found themselves about to graduate, yet with loans (贷款) to pay off. The pair decided to begin a strange, year-long project to battle their debt.
           The men, Ross Harper and Edward Moyse, set up the website BuyMyFace.com last October as a way to get rid of the £50,000 they shared as student loans. The idea behind the project was to earn money by selling their faces as advertising space every day for a year. Each day, they advertise a different business by painting the brand’s name or logo onto their faces and upload the pictures to the homepage of BuyMyFace.com, adding a link to the advertiser’s website and including a short piece of text about it. After they paint their faces and publish them on the website, Harper and Moyse go out to highly populated areas such as music festivals and theme parks to maximize their faces’ exposure. They hope more people will pay attention to the advertisements on their faces.
           At this time, Harper and Moyse have advertised their faces for over four months without skipping a day and they’re more than halfway to their goal. Though they first started charging a minimum of about £1.60 per company, the prices have risen as their popularity increases. For advertising space during the rest of April, they range between £250 and £750.
           Terri L. Rittenburg, associate professor of marketing at the University of Wyoming, said that she had heard of people tattooing (纹身) logos on themselves before, but this idea is much better. According to her, at first the idea would be new and unusual and attract attention. People are interested in this particular style of advertisement and would like to try what they advertise. But she is unsure how long it would last.
           At least for now, companies that have bought Harper and Moyse’s faces have written positive comments on the pair’s website. “We had a three percent increase in website traffic on the very day and for two days more afterwards,” said one of the companies.

At BuyMyFace.com, you can ______.

Aenjoy a good chat with your friends

Bbuy everything you want to have

Cshare experiences in doing business

Dget information on certain goods

           At this time, Harper and Moyse have advertised their faces for over four months without skipping a day and they’re more than halfway to their goal. Though they first started charging a minimum of about £1.60 per company, the prices have risen as their popularity increases. For advertising space during the rest of April, they range between £250 and £750.

           Terri L. Rittenburg, associate professor of marketing at the University of Wyoming, said that she had heard of people tattooing (纹身) logos on themselves before, but this idea is much better. According to her, at first the idea would be new and unusual and attract attention. People are interested in this particular style of advertisement and would like to try what they advertise. But she is unsure how long it would last.

           At least for now, companies that have bought Harper and Moyse’s faces have written positive comments on the pair’s website. “We had a three percent increase in website traffic on the very day and for two days more afterwards,” said one of the companies.

Why does the men’s idea of advertising prove to work?

ABecause an expert has highly praised them.

BBecause people find it unique and appealing.

CBecause the products they advertise are reliable.

DBecause they receive great help from businesses.

    根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项,选项中有两项为多余选项。

        Parents usually teach their children how to cross the street safely, by looking both ways for cars.  36   The city of Honolulu, Hawaii wants everyone to learn that lesson.

          37   Beginning on December 24, you will be fined from $ 15 to $ 99 if you step into a Honolulu street while looking at your phone. Honolulu is the first major U.S. city to ban what is called “distracted walking”. It recently passed a law in a seven to two vote. The law says, “No pedestrian shall cross a street or highway while viewing a mobile electronic device.”  38

        The law includes all electronic devices with screens: cellphone, tablets, gaming devices, digital cameras and laptop computers.  39   Pedestrians may use such devices in the street to call emergency services and rescue workers, such as firefighters and police officers.

        Pedestrian deaths have been increasing as the use of cellphones rises. The Governors Highway Safety Association, or GHSA, says pedestrian deaths in the United States increased 25 percent in 2010 and 2015. That trend continued in 2016 with the number of pedestrian deaths rising to almost 6000, 11% higher than that in 2015.

         40   The state of Washington was the first to outlaw distracted driving back in 2007. Now, 46 other states as well as D. C., Puerto Rico, Guam and the U. S. Virgin Islands, have laws against texting while driving.

        If you still want to text while walking, you could avoid being fined in Honolulu by using a voice-controlled digital assistant such as Siri or Google Assistant. Or you could just wait until you are again, safely, off the street.

    A.However, the law does permit an exception.

    B.Other U. S. cities may follow Honolulu.

    C.But do they also teach them to put away their cellphones?

    D.Texting while crossing the street will soon be banned in the city.

    E.Do you like Honolulu’s new law that bans texting while walking?

    F.In other words, do not look at a screen when you cross the street or you couldbe fined.

    G. The law has lowered thenumber of people hit and killed by cars in the city.
