While astronauts in space get to do many exciting things, they miss out on ordinary things that we all take for granted—being able to walk on firm ground, hanging out with family and digging into a slice of hot steaming pizza. Though not much can be done about the first two things, there may soon be a solution to the third one, thanks to this cool 3-D pizza printer!
About a year ago, NASA offered $125,000 to Anjan Contractor, a 3-D technology expert, to build a device that would allow astronauts to make pizza on demand. The mechanical engineer promised that his invention would produce pies in large quantities that looked, tasted and even smelled like pizza made in common ovens.
Late last year, the engineer presented a video of his first prototype（原型）that begins by creating a single slice of dough（面团）that is cooked and printed at the same time. Then comes the tomato “sauce”—a mix of tomato powder, oil and water and finally, a protein slice that looks like cheese. While the video doesn’t show the baking process, the inventor says that once the pizza is printed, it can be ready to be consumed in 7 seconds.
While the pie in the video looks delicious enough to attract any pizza lover, Anjan Contractor is far from ready for astronauts. That’s because he still has to find a solution to make the food container in the printer last for 30 years. Though that may sound unrealistic, actually it is not. Anjan Contractor believes that the only way that is possible is that the water is removed from all the ingredients and then they are reduced to the powder form. This, as you can imagine, will not be so easy. But, while the printer may not be ready for space, it certainly looks ready enough for people on earth. Hopefully, NASA and Contractor will consider selling it to those not fortunate enough to go to Mars!
24. Why does the author mention the things that astronauts in space cannot do?

For thousands of years, people thought of glass as something beautiful to look at. Only recently have they come to think of it as something to look through. Stores display their goods in large glass windows. Glass bottles and jars that hold food and drink allow us to see the contents. Glass is used to make eyeglasses, microscopes, telescopes, and many other extremely useful and necessary objects.
Until the Second World War, most of the glass used for optical（光学的）instruments was imported from Europe. However, during the war Americans could not get European glass, and they were forced to make their own. Therefore, new kinds of glasses were developed that had been previously unknown. These new effects were achieved by mixing other chemical elements with the sand. Some of these new glasses are very strong and can resist many kinds of shocks. Legend has it that a very hard glass was invented by a Roman who showed his discovery to the Emperor. When the Emperor saw the glass he feared that it would become more valuable than gold and sliver, making his treasure worthless. Therefore, he had the glassmaker killed, and the secret was not discovered again for hundreds of years.
In the present century, safety glass was invented for use in modern cars and planes. Safety glass is made by placing a layer of plastic between two layers of plate glass. When the outside layer of glass is broken, the pieces do not scatter（散开）and injure people. Some glass of the type is strong enough to resist bullets（子弹）.
Although nowadays plastics have replaced glass under conditions where glass might be easily broken, there are new uses being developed, for the greatest advantage of glass is that its component（组成的）parts are inexpensive and can be found all over the world.
28. As time goes by, glass ________.
29. Why did Americans make their own glass during the Second World War?
30. Why does the author tell us the legend?
31. Why are new uses of glass being developed?
The Hawaiian people did not celebrate Christmas before the arrival of Captain Cook in 1778. It was, however, the protestant missionaries（传教士）from New England who first arrived in 1820 that first introduced Christmas to the Hawaiian people.
The missionaries reduced the Hawaiian language to written form, enabling the Hawaiian people to read and write in their own language. Many words for which there were no clear Hawaiian language equivalents（对应词）were translated phonetically.
Let’s look at some key phrases that you may hear in Hawaii during the Christmas and New Year’s Day holiday season.
•Mele Kalikimaka — Merry Christmas. The words “Mele Kalikimaka” are a phonetic translation. When the missionaries and other Westerners first brought the custom of Christmas to the islands, the Hawaiians had difficulty pronouncing “Merry Christmas” and turned it into words that rolled more easily off their tongues.
•Hau’oli Makahiki Hou — Happy New Year. The western Christmas and New Year fell during this same time of the year when the Hawaiians traditionally honored the earth for giving them plenty to eat. This period of resting and feasting was called Makahiki (mahkahHEEkee). It lasted for 4 months, and no wars or conflicts were allowed during this time. Because makahiki also means “year”， the Hawaiian phrase for “Happy New Year” became “Hau’oli (happy) Makahiki (year) Hou (new)”．
•Mele Kalikimaka me ka Hau’oli Makahiki Hou — Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
•Mahalo Nui Loa Thank you very much. When you receive a nice gift or are treated to a special meal or beautiful song, you'll want to express your appreciation for the kindness.
32. What can we infer from the first two paragraphs?
33. The underlined word “phonetically” in Paragraph 2 probably means “________”.
34. Makahiki is a traditional time for the Hawaiian people to ________.
35. What is the text mainly about?

71.While taking a walk with my pet dog this morning, I found the middle-aged man nearby was shouting on his phone. Obvious, he had a bad day.Before he left, I noticed his keys on the ground. So I immediately picked up and ran away to find the man. Several minutes later, I found him, whom was still shouting on his phone beside his car. I walked to him and asked if he could hold on a little seconds. At first, he was angry about my interrupt. Then I showed to his keys and explained the whole thing. On heard my words, he immediately hang up his phone and apologized for his rudeness.
How can we create the positive change in the world? With many competing needs, it can seem overwhelming（势不可挡的）to decide where to put our energies. 36 _
Spread Peace in Small Ways
Sometimes just a smile can bring peace to someone. 37 _ Staying out of the gossip at work, not reacting to the mean driver behind me on the way home, listening to someone who needs to talk, doing what I can to help those around me. I also think that teaching my son by example to be tolerant of others’ beliefs and practices is very important, I may not be able to bring peace to the whole world but I can work on bringing peace to my little corner of it.
TodayI was able to help educate a group of caregivers for the elderly and thank themfor their service to seniors. I think that they may feel unappreciated becausethey are overworked and underpaid. I thanked them for their passion and hopedthat getting this positive message would help them with their dailyresponsibilities. They have lost so much, yet experienced so much, and deserveto have some compassion（同情）in their lives as they deal with what theyhave to deal with now, on a daily basis.
Youmay prevent someone from falling over it and prevent injury!
Make Friends around the World
Peace and love are both connected. I have a friend inanother country, and she is really a blessing to me. Every time I’m in trouble, she always lends me a hand. 40 Somaybe we need to love all nationalities, countries.
Have you ever really had a 41 _ ? One who saw you as a raw but 42 _ thing, a jewel that could be 43 _ to a proud shine? If you are lucky enough to find such teachers, you will always find your way.
My old professor’s death 44 _ came in 1994. Doctors guessed he had two years left. Morris knew it was 45 _ . Do I droop and disappear, or do I make the best of my time left? He had asked himself. 46 _ everyone was going to die, he could be 47 _ great value, right? He could be a human 48 _ for students to learn.
The last class of my old professor’s life had only 49 _ student. I was the student. The last class 50 _ once a week in his house, by a window in the study 51 _ he could watch a small plant shed（落叶）its pink leaves. The subject was The Meaning of Life. You were 52 _ to respond to questions, and you were expected to raise questions of your own. You were also required to perform physical tasks now and then, such as lifting the professors head to a comfortable spot on the pillow or placing his glasses on the 53 _ of his nose. Kissing him goodbye earned you extra 54 _ . Many topics were 55 _ , including love, work, community, family, aging, forgiveness, and, finally, death.
I 56 _ sometimes at the person I was before I rediscovered my old professor. I want to talk to that person. I want to tell him to pay attention when your loved ones are speaking, as if it 57 _ the last time you might hear them. I know I cannot do this. None of us can undo（消除...的影响）what we’ve done, or 58 _ a life already recorded. But if Professor Morris Schwartz taught me anything, it was this: there is no 59 _ thing as “too late” in life. He was 60_ until the day he said goodbye.
I’m sorry to hear that you have difficulty in your study.
