        If you thought pilots dimmed(调暗)the lights before takeoff to give you some shuteye, think again. Believe it or not, the dim lighting could actually help save your life in case of a plane emergency.

        The dimmed lights before taking off the runway and landing are a flight precaution used to help passengers’ eyes adjust quicker during an emergency escape. “Going from a brightly lit environment to one that’s completely dark would require some time for our eyes to focus and see the escape slide,” Alice Theriault, service director for Air Canada wrote in a press statement. “Since we need to have all the seconds on our side in the event of an emergency, dimming the lights is one of many steps we take to ensure the safety of our customers.”

        The phenomenon that your eyes see those strange speckles (小斑点) as your sight adjusts to a dark place after being in a light place is called dark adaptation. It normally takes our eyes about 20 to 30 minutes to see best in a dark room. The brighter the lights, the longer it takes for our eyes to adjust, which is why dimming the plane lights could shorten your “dark adaptation” time since you haven’t been sitting under fluorescent bulbs (荧光灯) all flight.

        Not only does dimming lights add valuable time to the escape process, it reduces the tension on your eyes if you need to look outside, or see the emergency lighting along the passage. “It helps keep you in the right direction.” Patrick Smith, an airline pilot and author of Cockpit Confidential told The Telegraph. “It also makes it easier for flight attendants to assess any outside risks, such as fire or debris, that might affect an escape.” So next time a pilot dims the lights, just know it’s for your safety, even though it creates a gentle atmosphere for your takeoff into the sky.

The lights are turned down before takeoff to help passengers_______.

Atake a short break

Bescape in time of emergency

Ccreate a warm atmosphere

Dadapt their eyes to the bright environment

        When was the last time you told someone they inspire you to go to work each morning?

        Teachers at Oak Park High School in Kansas City, Missouri, did just that this September, when they pulled individual students out of class to tell them just how much they appreciated them.

        The students’ reactions, which were captured (捕捉) on video and shared on YouTube in a now-viral video, ranged from shy thanks to hugs and tears.

        “I have been challenged to find a student who makes me want to come to school every day,” says one teacher in the video, “and that’s you.”

        Jamie McSparin, a teacher in charge of the school’s academy program for at-risk sophomores (二年级学生)and juniors, posed the challenge, writes ABC News.

        “Initially when we pulled the kids out, they all thought they were in trouble,” McSparin told ABC News. “Any teacher-student interaction always seems to be negative (消极的), and that was something that bothered me, too. No matter if they’re a good kid or a trouble maker or anything, they always thought they were in trouble,” she says.

        McSparin says she got the idea for the project after attending a professional development workshop this summer called the power of positivity.

        “I like the idea of letting students know they are appreciated, because we do appreciate them, I just don’t think we say it enough,” she told local news outlet WDAF-TV.

        It’s safe to say the challenge was effective.

        “I feel special,” said one of the boys in the video. “You should,” said his teacher. “You are special.”

What does the underlined word “posed” in Paragraph 5 mean?

APresented.

BRejected.

CIgnored.

DEvaluated.

        On a college camping trip, curiosity about waves and sand caused Rob Thieler to study shorelines around the world. Thirty years later and now a U.S. Geological Survey research geologist, Thieler, is combining science and smartphone technology to help study an endangered bird, the Atlantic Coast piping plover.

        The piping plover is a shorebird that breeds(繁殖)along the Atlantic Coast, the Great Lakes
and the Great Plains. Rising sea levels associated with climate change, as well as increased development in their beach habitats(栖息地), threaten the species(物种). To help track changes in piping plover habitats, Thieler developed a free app called iPlover in 2012. This is a marked change from the typical way scientists collect data, which involves gathering information using specialized equipment or writing in notebooks and then putting into spreadsheets.

        Since releasing iPlover, scientists have gathered data across 1500 km of breeding range. That
equals about a third of the distance across the U.S., which is a large area to cover for only two thousand breeding pairs of piping plovers on the east coast. Instead of having to travel and spend days at each site, a number of cooperators in the field use the app to collect and send data, allowing scientists to gather data more efficiently. It also allows them to collect data at the same time during each breeding season, providing a better picture of changes that happen over longer periods of time. And fast, centralized access means scientists can look at data quickly to get a real-time idea of where and how piping plovers are using their habitats.

        While iPlover is used by trained field staff, other apps like the U. S. Geological Survey’s 
web-based “iCoast—Did the Coast Change?” invite citizen scientists to identify coastal changes by comparing bird’s-eye-view photographs taken before and after storms. All the information scientists and citizen scientists alike collect helps federal and state agencies create policy plans for addressing climate change impacts (影响) worldwide.

What can we know about the piping plover?

AIts behaviour is changing.

BIts habitat is growing bigger.

CIts living environment is becoming worse.

DIts breeding is limited to the Atlantic Coast.

        Many people think only professionals—engineers, accountants, teachers, etc.—have careers.    36    Even if you’ve never had a paid job, you still have a career. Your career is the sum of your life and work. It includes all your activities and experiences. Your schooling, your volunteer work, and even your relationships with your family are all big parts of your career.    37    During your career, you will have a variety of jobs, occupations and roles. People used to think of a job as full-time, permanent, paid work done for an employer at a work site. But in our changing world, a job is a set of duties or tasks. It can be paid or unpaid.    38    Even someone who is self-employed has a job.

        An occupation is a group of jobs with similar responsibilities that require a common set of skills.    39    Programmers may have permanent or temporary jobs working for specific employers, be self-employed, work full-time or part-time, be paid for their work or volunteer their services. They may change jobs or hold several jobs at one time but, until they change the type of duties or tasks they perform, they are still computer programmers.

        40    We all play a number of roles in our lives and our roles often change over time. For example, Kris works four days a week as a receptionist in a clinic and takes evening courses in social work. She also sews gymnastic wear for her neighbor who sells it at summer markets. Now Kris has at least three roles.

    A. A role is a part you play. 

    B. Actually everyone has a career.

    C. In other words, your career is your life story.

    D. For example, computer programmer is an occupation.

    E. As a matter of fact, a job is different from a role in some way. 

    F. It can be completed at a work site, at home, or somewhere else.

    G. The following is about your work, your family, and your life story.

        In high school, I served as a cashier in a grocery store.

    阅读下面短文,在空白处填入1个适当的单词或括号内单词的正确形式。

        No one is sure how many Americans belong to reading groups called book clubs. Yet   61   (publisher) and bookstores report that more and more people throughout the United States are joining   62    (they).

        Most of the clubs work the same way. Members read the same book at the same time. Then they meet to talk about the book. Members may be friends or people    63   live near each other. Some Americans belong to reading groups on    64   Internet. These groups include people around the world who communicate about books they read. They send electronic mails instead of gathering   65    (discuss) books.

        Most reading groups study books by   66    (variety) writers. However, some groups read the work of a single writer,   67    (usual) one that has been famous for a while. Other groups may   68    (name) for an important person in the work of the writer,   69    a Sherlock Holmes Club. Members of these book clubs often are experts about their   70    (choose) reading materials. One member of a Holmes reading group, for example, can identify almost every person in every Sherlock Holmes story.

Dear Brad,

        I am a boy in the first grades of a senior high school. I feel uneasily recently. At home I feel like prisoner. I am not allowed to watch TV or surf the Internet. The only thing I have to do it is studying. Every time I got a low mark, my parents will scold me sharply. There’s a generation gap among my parents and me, but it’s always difficult to communicate. Life are supposed to be colorful and wonderful, isn’t it? How should I devote all my time and energy to the study so as to entering a good university? I am very unhappy and lost. I need your help.

                                             Best wishes,

                                                 Li Ping
