A I was born an albino. one in my family had ever known what an albino was, No what it meant to be an albino,and what had to be done differently because I was an albino. My parents treated me just like they treated everybody else. That was just about the best thing they could have done. It helped me trust myself,so when the annoyances came along,I could deal with them. Actually,my photo always looked like a snowball with two pieces of coal for eyes. Kids would tease me,asking if I was joining the circus and calling me “Whitey”. Like most albinos,I had terrible eyesight, and my grades suffered until eventually I overcame my feeling ashamed of myself and realized it was okay to ask to sit in the front of the classroom so I could see the blackboard better. People stared at me when I held reading material right at the tip of my nose so I could see it well enough to read. Even when I was eight or nine. movie-theater clerks started asking me to pay adult prices because I “looked older”. The worst part for me was that because my eyesight was so bad,I couldn't play sports very well. I didn't give up trying,though. And I studied harder. Eventually,I got better at school and loved it. By the time I got to college I was double majoring,going to summer school and devoting myself to every kind of extracurricular activity I could find. I had learned to be proud of being an albino. I did my best to make “albino” a positive word. And I decided to make my living with my eyes. I couldn't see well enough to play spots, with a solid education and the drive to do it, could make but I a living involved in the field I loved. I've done it now for more than thirty years in print and in video,and now in cyberspace. People make jokes about how I'm the only “blind editor” they know,but most of the time the jokes are signs of respect. And I make jokes about being an albino. I was just a proud albino kid from the coal country of Pennsylvania. I now realize that being born an albino helped me to overcome difficulties,gain confidence,and be proud of my personal achievement and humble about my professional accomplishments.

B.The author paid adult prices for movies when he was still young. C.The author's study was affected by his eyesight at first.

Words have the power to build us up or tear us down. doesn't matter It whether the words come from someone else or ourselves—the positive and negative effects are just as lasting. We all talk to ourselves sometimes.We're usually too embarrassed to admit it,though.In fact,we really shouldn't be because more and more experts believe talking to ourselves out loud is a healthy habit. This“self—talk”helps us motivate ourselves,remember things,solve problems,and calm ourselves down.Be aware, though,that as much as 77%of self—talk tends to be negative.So in order to stay positive,we should only speak words of encouragement to ourselves.We should also be quick to give ourselves a pat on the back .The next time you finish a project,do well in a test,or finally clean your room,join me in saying“Good job!” Often,words come out of our mouths without us thinking about the effect they will have.But we should be aware that our words cause certain responses in others. example, For when returning an item to a store,we might use warm,friendly language during the exchange.And the clerk will probably respond in a similar manner.Or unkind and critical language will most likely cause the clerk to be defensive. Words possess power because of their lasting effect.Many of us regret something we once said.And we remember unkind words said to us! Before speaking,we should always ask ourselves:Is it true? Is it loving? Is it needed? If what we want to say doesn't pass this test,then it's better left unsaid. Words possess power:both positive and negative.Those around us receive encouragement when we speak positively.We can offer hope,build self—esteem(自尊) and motivate others to do their best. Negative words destroy all those things.Will we use our words to hurt or to heal? The choice is ours.

The doomsday(末日) rumour reached a high point with the release of the new movie “2012”,directed by Roland Emmerich.In the movie,Yellowstone blows up, showering the continent with black ash.Tidal waves wash over the Himalayas,where the governments of the planet have secretly built a ship which a select 400,000 people can ride out the storm.There are hundreds of hooks devoted to 2012,and millions of Web sites,depending on what combination of“2012”and“doomsday”you type into Google.All of it, astronomers say, is nonsense.“Most of what's claimed for 2012 relies on wishful thinking and ignorance of astronomy. ”Ed Krupp, an expert on ancient astronomy, wrote in an article in the November issue of Sky &Telescope. “I get angry at the way people are being influenced and frightened to make money,” Morrison said.“There is no right to frighten children to make a buck.”suggested David Morrison,an astronomer at the NASA Ames Research Center in Moffett Field,Calif.He said he had been getting about 20 letters and e—mail messages a day from people as far away as India scared out of their wits.Morrison said he did not blame the movie for all this, much as many other supporters of the Mayan prediction. then, said, as But he “my doctorate is in astronomy,not psychology.” In an e—mail exchange, Krupp said:“We are always uncertain about the future,and we always consume representations of it.We are always attracted by the romance of the ancient past.”A NASA spokesman, Dwayne Brown, the agency did not comment on movies, said leaving that to movie critics. But when it comes to science, Brown said, “we felt it was careful to provide a resource.” If you want to worry,most scientists say,you should think about global climate change or nuclear

D Here's a scene:a village where the sun always shines, crops always grow and your friends drop by to sweep your yard to the sound of guitar music.Animals do what they are told , there is no disease , and lendin’ folks a helpin’hand makes you richer and wiser.Welcome to FarmVille— Current population 69m and rising fast. “It reminds me of my childhood, ”says one player, Lia Curran, a nurse from London. 37, “Right now I'm growing wheat and flowers. I've got a small garden, and I'm raising some chickens and some cows. I like having the animals. It's relaxing.” Curran's animals, however, is nothing more than a collection of cartoons. FarmVille is an online computer game built into the social networking site Facebook and is described by its players as “addictive”. Launched last June by Zynga Game Network, FarmVille now has many players—more than the population of the UK. The players are largely women over the age of 35.

rapidly through the first levels but, once hooked, have to work harder and harder with no final level or goal in sight. “Games like this draw people into a fantasy world that's separate from real life where there are no issues,and where things are simple and controllable,” Brian Dudley says.In November,he opened the UK's first computer games addiction clinic,treating online gamers who stayed at the keyboard for up to eight hours a day—“the tip of the iceberg”, says. he Two weeks ago, group of US players launched a class a action against Zynga and Facebook. “Most, not all, the online advertisements presented through Zynga if of are scams(骗局),”the lawsuit states.“The advertisements are highly misleading and often result in users ordering goods or services that they do not want or need.” According to Nick O'neill from the social media site All Facebook,Zynga is making $500, 000(£304, 000)a day, from its Facebook games, turn spending some $50m(£30m)a year on Facebook in ads. If all that weren't enough,FarmVille doesn't even function like a proper farm:in FarmVille,wheat grows in two days—in real life,it takes months.But play continues nevertheless. 53.If you want to create a better and richer farm,you should do the following EXCEPT that .

There are some people who can calculate the day of the week for any given date in 40,000 years, but who cannot add two plus two.Others can perform complex classical piano pieces after hearing them once, but they cannot read or write. Dr. Langdon Down first described this condition in 1887. called these people idiot savants. J. He An idiot savant is a person who has significant mental impairment (损伤) , such as in autism or retardation.At the same time, the person also exhibits some extraordinary skills, which are unusual for most people.The skills of the savant may vary from being exceptionally gifted in music or in mathematics, or having a photographic memory. One of the first descriptions of a human who could calculate quickly was written in 1789 by

Dr.Benjamin Rush, an American doctor.His patient, Thomas Fuller, was brought to Virginia as a slave in 1724.It took Thomas only 90 seconds to work out that a man who has lived 70 years, 17 days, and 12 hours has lived 2,210,500,800 seconds. Despite this ability, he died in 1790 without ever learning to read or write. Another idiot savant slave became famous as a pianist in the 1860s.Blind Tom had a vocabulary of only 100 words, but he played 5 ,000 musical pieces beautifully. In the excellent movie Rain Man, made in 1988 and available on video cassette, Dustin Hoffman plays an idiot savant who amazes his brother played by Tom Cruise, with his ability to perform complex calculations very rapidly. Today we more clearly recognize that the idiot savant is special because of brain impairment.Yet not all brain impairment leads to savant skills.Some studies have shown that people who have purposeful interruption of the left side of the brain can develop idiot savant skills.However few people wish to participate in such experiments.There are many excellent reasons for not undergoing unnecessary experimentation on one's brain.The term idiot savant is outdated and inappropriate.Virtually all savants have a high degree of intelligence and are thus not idiots. 56.What does the passage mainly talk about? A.Idiot savants have areas of outstanding abilities. B.Human Beings have complicated thinking process. C.The brains of the idiot savants are partly impaired. D.The reasons why people have wonderful skills vary. 57.Which of the following can be done by Rain Man? A.He can play wonderful pieces of classical music. B.He can guess out exactly the length of a man's life. C.He can memorize the contents of the pictures fast. D.He can count matches dropped on the floor quickly. 58.What can you infer from the passage? A.Idiot savants have real talents for art and math. B.Dr.Down is the first person who found idiot savants. C.Few people wish to risk becoming savants by brain operations. D.Intentional left brain impairments will surely lead to idiot savants. 59.Which of the following shows the structure of the passage?
