Roll over, sit and fetch aren’t commands normally given to a robot, but the smart toy company WowWee has developed a new way of owning a puppy．
CHIP (Canine Home Intelligent Pet) is a robotic dog with blue LED eyes and pointy ears and can sit, shake, dance and make all types of dog noises．It also has tracking capabilities to help locate its owner．“The beauty about CHIP is that it has its own thing going on,” said Sufer, CTO at WowWee．“It has its own life and own kind of intelligence．Even if you’re not around, it’s always doing something.”
CHIP uses wheels to get around and is loaded with sensors(传感器) that give it a 360-degree view to find its ball．The pup is Bluetooth enabled, which connects to a wristband worn by its owner．The wristband, similar to a watch, displays icons（图标）for different commands such as a thumb-up, which allows you to give your pup a digital belly rub．With its owner wearing a smart wristband, it can even follow him around the room.
“We worked on CHIP for about five to six months,” Davin Sufer, told dailymail.com, “We typically come up with a concept, model and product and get it on shelves within a year.” The company plans to start shipping units by next fall, which will allow them to load up the robotic dog with sensors and add many more animated responses per-owner interactivity.
The high-tech toy company made its debut（处女作）in 2004 by releasing the 1.5 foot RoboSapien, which sold millions of units．MiP, which hit shelves last year, is a seven inch tall robot covered in white with black accents．Users can direct it, change its emotions and make it dance to any song on your iPad．It’s loud, fast and active．
About 15 years ago, a company called ToyQuest developed the first ever electronic robotic dog---Tekno, the Robotic Puppy．The company sold over seven million units in the first season and 40 million more during its original four years of production．Tekno was built with over 160 emotions and instructions, but most importantly offered consumers a quick look into the future．
60．According to Sufer, the amazing characteristic of CHIP is that _____.
A．it is loaded with special sensors
B．it can make all kinds of dog noises
C．it has quick response to the commands
D．it can do something without instructions
61．CHIP can follow its owner with the help of _____.
B．a smart wristband
D．blue LED eyes
62．From the passage, we can know_______.
A．CHIP can be bought in the store now
B．WowWee introduced its first product last year
C．Tekno provided the bright future of the robotic puppy
D．MiP is the first company to develop the robotic puppy
My daughter Kelly is a cautious person．She needs to warm up to situations, is hesitant to try new things．When with close friends, she becomes a leader who laughs loudly and chants, “Girls rule, boys drool.” But when that comfort zone is not around her, she is shy and nervous.
This has been challenging for me at times．“Shy” is not a word that I think has ever been used to describe me．But this has been a year of firsts for my girl that has filled her with a new sense of confidence．This year she moved to lap lane in swimming where she was preparing for a swim team．This year she learned to ride a bike without training wheels．And this year she completed her first kids’ triathlon (三项全能) .
On Saturday, with a thunderstorm coming soon and my son’s birthday party later in the day, we all went out in the dark of the morning for Kelly to participate in her first triathlon．We practiced transitions from swim to bike to run with her, we got all the equipment she’d need, and we kept talking about the race．But as we waited the two hours for the older kids to finish before her turn, she held my leg a little harder and told me she loved me a few too many times．She was nervous but trying to keep it together.
And then it was her turn．From the second she jumped into the water, my heart soared．My daughter transformed into the most confident human being I had ever seen．She dominated(主宰) that swim, crushed that bike ride and ran to the finish with the biggest smile on her face.
I can honestly say that I never felt so proud of someone in my entire life．It wasn’t because she did a sport or anything like that．It was because she was afraid of something and conquered（克服） that fear with confidence and a fire I hadn’t seen before.
All day I would find myself just looking over at her and smiling．She might be wearing the finalist medal but I felt like I won that day．I won the chance to see my girl shine.
Shine on, sweet baby．

Does happiness have a scent?
When someone is happy, can you smell it?You can usually tell when someone is happy based on seeing them smile, hearing them laugh or perhaps from receiving a big hug．But can you also smell their happiness? Surprising new research suggests that happiness does indeed have a scent, and that the experience of happiness can be transmitted through smell, reports Phys.org．
For the study, 12 young men were shown videos meant to bring about a variety of emotions while researchers gathered sweat samples from them．All of the men were healthy and none of them were drug users or smokers, and all were asked to abstain from drinking or eating smelly foods during the study period．
Those sweat samples were then given to 36 equally healthy young women to smell, while researchers monitored their reactions．Only women were selected to smell the samples, apparently because previous research has shown that women have a better sense of smell than men and are also more sensitive to emotional signaling—though it's unclear why only men were chosen to produce the scents．
Researchers found that the behavior of the women after smelling the scents—particularly their facial expressions—indicated a relationship between the emotional states of the men who produced the sweat and the women who sniffed them．
“Human sweat produced when a person is happy brings about a state similar to happiness in somebody who breathes this smell,” said study co-author Gun Semin, a professor at Koc University in Turkey．
This is a fascinating finding because it not only means that happiness does have a scent, but that the scent is capable of transmitting the emotion to others．The study also found that other emotions, such as fear, seem to carry a scent too．This ensures previous research suggesting that some negative emotions have a smell, but it is the first time this has proved to be true of positive feelings．
Researchers have yet to isolate(分离) exactly what the chemical compound for the happiness smell is, but you might imagine what the potential applications for such a finding could be．Happiness perfumes, for instance, could be invented．Scent therapies（香味疗法）could also be developed to help people through depression or anxiety．Perhaps the most surprising result of the study, however, is our broadened understanding of how emotions get communicated, and also how our own emotions are potentially managed through our social context and the emotional states of those around us．What is the main finding of the new research?
A．Men produce more sweats.
B．Negative emotions have a smell.
C．Pleasant feelings can be smelt out.
D．Women have a better sense of smell.
64．The underlined part “abstain from” in Paragraph 3 probably means _________.
65．What is the application value of the new research?
A．Perfumes could help people understand each other.
B．Some smells could be developed to better our mood.
C．Perfumes could be produced to cure physical diseases.
D．Some smells could be created to improve our appearance.
66．We can learn from the last paragraph that .
A．happiness comes from a scent of sweat
B．positive energy can deepen understanding
C．people need more emotional communication
D．social surroundings can influence our emotions
Conventional wisdom is a major barrier to innovation that threatens the survival of companies everywhere．It’s based on the assumption that old ideas will always work, so they shouldn’t be challenged．While this may be a valid assumption in situations that don’t change, it’s unlikely to hold true in a changing situation．In today’s rapid changing global environment, old methods often don't work, and stubbornly using them can lead to major problems.
Most people seem to agree with conventional wisdom because it gives one a false sense of security．If everyone else believes it, then it must be true．Individuals who use conventional wisdom are certain that they are right, and being right is good．They want to continue using old ideas rather than take risks with changes that might not work．In 1977, Ken Olsen, co-founder and CEO of Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC), stated “There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in his home.” Despite being a dominant leader in the computer industry, DEC no longer exists.People seem to forget that since innovation is a change, there can be no innovation without change．Unfortunately, conventional wisdom prevents leaders, followers and companies from changing and therefore innovating．If companies don’t innovate, but their competitors do, the future is likely to be problematic．Breaking from conventional wisdom has led to many of the most innovative companies and products in history across many industries, so it has a powerful effect on business success.
Ted Turner (founder of CNN) knew little, if anything, about the news business, but he knew it was inconvenient to watch news only at the dinner hour, as was common before CNN．Turner’s solution was to create a cable channel dedicated to news 24 hours a day．The news establishment reflected conventional wisdom at the time, and predicted his idea would fail because no one wanted to watch the news all day．However, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that viewers don’t have to watch the news all day for the CNN to work．Viewers just have to watch when they want to get information．Due to conventional thinking, the critics failed to recognize the opportunity that was clear to Ted．They assumed that only what was familiar to them could work in the future.
Conventional wisdom prevents creativity, flexibility and risk-taking, so unconventional leaders enthusiastically break from it．To survive, thrive and maintain competitive advantage, companies must be flexible when reacting to change．
67．DEC has disappeared probably because ___________.
A．the consumers didn’t like its products
B．the leaders lacked the sense of security
C．the CEO stuck to the conventional ideas
D．the employees took many risks with changes
68．The founding of CNN is used as an example to prove _________.
A．missing opportunities could lead to failure
B．changing could contribute to business success
C．watching news at the dinner hour is convenient
D．conventional wisdom influences business success
69．What does the underlined part probably mean?
A．Rocket scientists can ensure the CNN works properly．
B．Most of the viewers don’t like to watch the news at work.
C．It’s necessary to understand when people watch the news.
D．It’s easy to know people needn’t watch the news all the time.
70．The passage is mainly written to tell us that ______.
A．old methods are changing with time
B．opportunities lead to business success
C．conventional wisdom limits innovation
D．successful companies need wise leaders

A Deed a Day

I thought one deed a day was too easy．However, it was actually __43__ than it seemed because it had to be something __44__ what we had already done．Sending birthday cards to people we already sent cards to every year would not __45__.
We had a rough __46__．On some days, someone would forget to __47__ a good deed, while on other days, we would forget to write our good deeds in the diary．After a few weeks though, I found myself waking up in the morning trying to __48__ what good deed I could do for someone that day．My daughters began to rush to me after school to __49_ me the good deed they had done.
Now, after a year, I am happy to say that it is making a(n) __50__ in our lives．Instead of always __51__ what the day will bring for us, we think about what we can do for someone else．
Who would have thought that trying to do a simple kindness a day would be so 52 ?
