PartⅢ Reading Comprehension ( 2 x 20 )

Many post-80s couples are complaining that going to the movies, shopping or attending parties have become impossible since their kids were born. That's the way most parents are living their lives, no weekends of their own, no time to visit friends, not even a chance of promotion in their jobs.
Asking help from their parents might be a way out,but problems are that some aging parents arc not strong enough to take care of the kids, and that the kids may also become too spoiled by their grandparents.
Then, here comes a solution: families with kids can form a small group, and parents of each family can take turns to look after all the kids in this group on weekends. Thus, other parents can have some quiet time and feel free to do something they've been planning for a long time. At the same time, the kids can make new friends and won' t be hanging around their parents all day long. This is baby-pooling.

It is a terrible illustration of man ' s weakness to nature .and the tsunami(^^) that struck the Japanese coast in March. 2011 has illustrated the difficulty of fighting against natural disasters, even for a prosperous nation.
Totally preventing tsunami-damage is impossible. But there is much that can be done to minimize damage and loss of life. Measures that can be taken include designing solid buildings, and developing early-warming systems, public education programs and evacuation( 拔 散 ）strategics.Moreover, the approach of a tsunami is possibly picked up by the sensors of complicated international warming systems. Countries can use radio and television broadcasts as well as loudspeaker networks to warn the public.
But an early warming system depends on how far the tsunami strikes, if it's close by, the warning system is not going to be very effective. When people are faced with an unstoppable force like a tsunami the massive waves created by events like underwater earthquakes, the best course of action for them is lo get inland and to the higher ground as quickly as possible.

Global warming is causing more than 300,000 deaths and about $125 billion in economic losses each year, according to a report by the Global Humanitarian Forum, an organization led by Annan, the former United Nations secretary general.
The report, to be released Friday, analyzed data and existing studies of health, disaster,population and economic trends. It found that human-influenced climate change was raising the global death rates from illnesses including malnutrition (营养不良）and heal-related health problems.
But even before its release, the report drew criticism from some experts on climate and risk,who questioned its methods and conclusions.Along with the deaths, the report said that the lives of 325 million people, primarily in poor countries, were being seriously affected by climate change. It projected that the number would double by 2030.
Roger Pielke Jr.a political scientist at the University of Colorado, Boulder, who studies disaster trends, said the Forum's report was “a methodological embarrassment” because there was no way to distinguish deaths or economic losses related to human-driven global warming amid the much larger losses resulting from the growth in populations and economic development in vulnerable (易受伤害的)regions. Dr. Pielke said that “climate change is an important problem requiring our utmost attention. “But the report, he said, ''will harm the cause for action on both climate change and disasters because it is so deeply flawed (有瑕疵的).”
However, Soren Andreasen, a social scientist at Dalberg Global Development Partners who supervised the writing of the report, defended it, saying that it was clear that the numbers were rough estimates. He said the report was aimed at world leaders, who will meet in Copenhagen in December to negotiate a new international climate treaty.
In a press release describing the report, Mr. Annan stressed the need for the negotiations to focus on increasing the flow of money from rich to poor regions to help reduce their vulnerability to climate hazards while still curbing the emissions of the heat-trapping gases. More than 90% of the human and economic losses from climate change arc occurring in poor countries, according to the report.
71. What is the finding of the Global Humanitarian Forum?
A. Global temperatures affect the rate of economic development.
B.Rates of death from illnesses have risen due to global warming.
C.Malnutrition has caused serious health problems in poor countries.
D.Economic trends have to do with population and natural disasters.
72. What do we learn about the Forum's report from the passage?
A.It was challenged by some climate and risk experts.
B.It aroused a lot of interest in the scientific circles.
C.It was warmly received by environmentalists.
D.It caused a big stir in developing countries.
73.What does Dr. Pielke say about the Forum's report?
A.Its statistics look embarrassing.
B.It is invalid in terms of methodology.
C.It deserves our closest attention.
D.Its conclusion is purposely exaggerated.
74.What is Soren Andreasen’s view of the report?
A. Its conclusions are based on carefully collected data.
B. It is vulnerable to criticism if the statistics are closely examined.
C. It will give rise to heated discussions at the Copenhagen conference.
D. Its rough estimates arc meant to draw the attention of world leaders.
75. What does Kofi Annan say should be the focus of the Copenhagen conference?
A. How rich and poor regions can share responsibility in curbing global warming.
B. How human and economic losses from climate change can be reduced.
C.How emissions of heat-trapping gases can be reduced on a global scale.
D.How rich countries can better help poor regions reduce climate hazards.
Reaching new peaks of popularity in North America is Iceberg Water, which is harvested from icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada.
Arthur von Wiesenberger, who carries the title Water Master, is one of the few water critics in North America. As a boy, he spent time in the larger cities of Italy, France and Switzerland,where bottled water is consumed daily. Even then, he kept a water journal, noting the brands he liked best “my dog could tell the difference between bottled and tap water,” He says.
But is plain tap water all that bad? Not at all. In fact. New York's municipal water for more
than a century was called the champagne of lap water and until recently considered among the best in the world in terms of both taste and purity. Similarly, a magazine in England found that tap water from the Thames River tasted better than several leading brands of bottled water that were400 times more expensive.
Nevertheless, soft-drink companies view bottled water as the next battle-ground for market
share-this despite the fact that over 25 percent of bottled water comes from tap water: PepsiCo's Aquafina and Coca-Cola's Dasani arc both purified tap water rather than spring water.
As diners thirst for leading brands, bottlers and restaurateurs salivate(垂涎)over the profits.
A restaurant's typical mark-up on wine is 100 to 150 percent, whereas on bottled water it's often
300 to 500 percent. But since water is much cheaper than wine, and many of the fancier brands
aren't available in stores, most diners don't notice or care.
As a result, some restaurants are turning up the pressure to sen bottled water.According to
an article in The Street Journal, some of the more shameless tactics include placing attractive bottles on the table for a visual sell, listing brands on the menu without prices, and pouring bottled water without even asking the diners if they want it.
Regardless of how it’s sold, the popularity of bottled whaler taps into our desire for better health, our wish to appear cultivated, and even a longing for lost purity.
76.What do we know about Iceberg Water from the passage?
A.lt is a kind of iced water. B.It is just plain tap water.
C .It is a kind of bottled water. D .It is a kind of mineral water.
77.By saying “My dog could tell the difference between bottled and tap water (Line 4 Para2),Von Wiesenberger wants to convey the message that_____?
A .plain tap whaler is certainly unfit for drinking
B .bottled water is clearly superior to tap water
C.bottled water often appeals more to dogs taste
D.dogs can usually detect a fine difference in taste
78.The-fancier brands (Line 3 Para 5) refers to____.
A.tap water from the Thames River
B.famous wines not sold in ordinary stores
C.PepsiCo's Aquafina and Coca-Cola's Dasani
D.expensive bottled water with impressive names
79.Why are some restaurants turning up the pressure to sell bottled water?
A. Bottled water brings in huge profits.
B. Competition from the wine industry is intense.
C. Most diners find bottled water affordable.
D.Bottled water satisfied diners' desire to fashionable.
80.According to passage, why is bottled whaler so popular?
A. It is much cheaper than wine.
B.It is considered healthier.
C. lt appeals to more cultivated people.
D. It is more widely promoted in the market.

The Attitude towards Crisis
When it comes to the attitude towards crisis, most people will show their great concern and interest, it has a great influence on our society and life.
What does crisis mean? Everyone has his own understanding in mind. My points are as following. First of all, it is obvious that crisis can bring us a lot of trouble, which may make us lose the confidence in life. What's more, there is no denying that crisis can increase our courage if we face it bravely. In the end, it goes without saying that crisis can improve our ability if we learn to handle it successfully.
This is my understanding of crisis. Of course, it can't be the only answer. All our views should be based on right attitude and position. Only in this way can our society benefit from it and our life become much more beautiful because of it.
