  Tears ran down from my eyes as I saw the essay my high school English teacher had just handed back. A big F was written on top. I was hopeless. I was stupid! My face burned with shame when my classmates called me stupid.

  “I’m the only one who doesn’t know my ABCs!”I sobbed to Mom.

  I’ll help,”she promised.

  Every day I sat with her, but to me, cat looked like cta and red was reb. Frustrated, I would return to my bedroom and draw, filling the paper with houses, restaurants and offices.

  “When I grow up, I want my own store,”I told Mom, pointing to my drawings.

  “That’s great !”she said,“ but first you have to learn to read.”

  Later, I was diagnosed with dyslexia (失读症). So Mom took me to a learning centre, where I was given reading exercises. But I still had a hard time. Finally, I graduated, but I was afraid of my reading skills.

  “I’ll never get a job!”I cried to Mom later again.

  “Don’t focus on what you can’t do,” she comforted, “Concentrate on what you really can.”

  But what can I do? I wondered. Suddenly, I thought of the drawings I’d made as a child and my dream of h aving my own store. I enjoyed sales so much that over the next few years, I tried my hand at other businesses. Today, I watch over seven branches. We have 187 employees and $15 million in sales.

  While I’ll never be what my teachers might have wanted, I am a success--on my own terms. The other day a student sent me a card, reading: You gave me so much confidence. I hope to be like you when I am big. Tears of joy filled my eyes. This was my A, and I smiled.

  When other nine-year-old kids were playing games, she was working at a petrol station. When other teens were studying or going out, she fought to find a place to sleep on the street. But she beat these terrible setbacks to win a highly competitive scholarship and gain entry into Harvard University.

  Liz Murray, a 22-year-old American girl, has been writing a real-life story of willpower and determination. Liz grew up with two drug-addicted parents. There was never enough food or warm clothes in the house. Liz was the only member of the family who had a job. Her mother had AIDS and died when Liz was just l5 years old. The effect of that loss became a turning point in her life. Connecting the environment in which she had grown up with how her mother had died. She decided to do something about it.

  Liz went back to school. She threw herself into her studies, never telling her teachers that she was homeless. At night, she lived on the streets. “What drove me to live on had something to do with understanding, and by understanding that there was a whole o ther way of being. I had only experienced a small part of the society,” she wrote in her book Breaking Night.

  She admitted that she used envy to drive herself on. She used the benefits that come easily to others, such as a safe living environment, to encourage herself that “next to nothing could hold me down”. She finished high school in just two years and won a full scholarship to study at Harvard University. But Liz decided to leave her top university a couple of months earlier this year in order to take care of her father, who has also developed AIDS. “I love my parents so much. They are drug addicts. But I never forget that they love me all the time. ”

  Liz wants moviegoers to come away with the idea that changing your life is “as simple as making a decision”.

  A heated debate is currently going on in our town. Should we allow the cinema to be constructed in the Havenswood Shopping Center? There is just one large lot left to build on, and the theater would use up all of that space. Some people are excited at the idea of finally having our own movie theater. Others would rather travel ten miles to the nearest theater to keep our quiet town the way it is. They say it is enough to have Marvin’s Movie Video Rentals. After all, Marvin’s store keeps thousands of the latest videos.

  There are certainly benefits to renting videos. For one thing, you can plan your own schedule when it is convenient for you. You can relax on your sofa, and take a break whenever you need one.You can also talk to others without bothering any strangers seated nearby. In addition, it is a less expensive way to view a movie compared to going to a theater.

  On the other hand, seeing a movie in a theater is an experience all its own. First, you can see the movie on wide screen as the filmmaker intended. To be viewed on a television screen, a film must be changed in some way to make it smaller. One is the “pan-and-scan” method, which involves removing some of the details in the picture. The other way, called “letterboxing”, keeps the image the way it is on the big screen, with one annoying exception; because the big-screen version is wide, the same picture on a television screen must be long and narrow.

  Another problem is sound. The sound from a television cannot compare to the sound system in a theater. Your experience of a movie improves when you can clearly hear all of the sounds. Furthermore, at home, viewing companions often talk during a movie, which makes you miss out on what’s happening in the film.

  Besides, having a movie theater will not mean that you can’t still go to Marvin’s! You will just have a choice that you didn’t have before. Isn’t it time for Havenswood residents to enjoy a little progress?

  29.How does the author mainly state his point?

  B.By making a comparison.

  C.By carrying out a survey

  D.By presenting different people’s view.

  30.Why do some people think it is enough to have Marvin’s Movie Video Rentals?

  A.Marvin’s store stocks lots of recent videos.

  B.It’ very convenient to go to Marvin’s store.

  C.the owner of the store is friendly and helpful.

  D.It is more comfortable to see films at home than in the theater.

  31.What is the author’s attitude towards building a new cinema?

  A.Cautious. B.Approving. C.Doubtful. D.Worried.


  Staying positive through the cold season could be your best defense against getting ill, a new American study suggests.

  In an experiment that exposed healthy volunteers to a cold or flu virus, researchers found that people with a generally sunny character were less likely to fall ill. The findings, published in the journal Psychosomatic Medicine, build on evidence that a “positive emotional style” can help ward off the common cold and other illness.

  Researchers believe the reasons may be both objective―as in happiness improving immune function(免疫功能)―and subjective―as in happy people being less troubled by a sore throat or runny nose.“People with a positive emotional style may have different immune responses to the virus,” explained leading study author Dr Sheldon Cohen of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.“And when they do get a cold, they may interpret their illness as being less severe.”

  Cohen and his colleagues have found in a previous study that happier people seemed less likely to catch a cold, but some questions remained as to whether the emotional quality itself had the effect.

  For the new study, the researchers had 193 healthy adults complete standard measures of personality qualities, physical health, and emotional “style”. Those who tended to be happy, energetic and easy-going were judged as having a positive emotional style, while those who were often unhappy, tense, and hostile had a negative style.

  Afterwards, the researchers gave them nose drops containing either a cold virus or a particular flu virus. Over the next six days, the volunteers reported on any aches, pains, sneezing they had, while the researchers collected objective data. Cohen and his colleagues found that happy people were less likely to develop a cold.

  What’s more, when happy folks did develop a cold, their symptoms were less severe than expected based on objective measures. On the contrary, people with negative characters were not at increased risk of developing a cold based on objective measures, though they did tend to get down about their symptoms.

  “We find that it’s really positive emotions that have the big effect,” Cohen said,“not the negative ones.”

  So can a bad-tempered person fight a cold by deciding to be happy?

  32.The purpose of Cohen’s new study was to _____.

  A.find effective ways to fight illnesses

  B.test people’s different immune responses to cold virus

  C.tell differences between happy people and unhappy people

  D.examine whether health was related to emotional styles

  33.The underlined phrase “ward-off” in Paragraph 2 can be replaced by “_____”.

  A.get close to B.keep away from

  C.get used to D.go on with

  34.How did Cohen reach his conclusion?

  A.By comparing the experimental results of different groups.

  B.By asking the volunteers to complete a form.

  C.By collecting data among people with a cold.

  D.By observing the volunteers’ symptoms.

  35.Cohen’s new study showed that _____.

  A.an emotional style is difficult to change

  B.happy people are immune to cold virus

  C.people attitudes towards illnesses are different

  D.happiness itself helps protect people from cold
