A

Heroes of Our Time

A good heart

Dikembe Mutombo grew up in Africa among great poverty and disease. He came to Georgetown University on a scholarship(奖学金) to study medicine — but Coach (教练) John Thompson got a look at Dikembe and had a different idea. Dikembe became a star in the NBA, and a citizen of the United States. But he never forgot the land of his birth, or the duty to share his fortune with others. He built a new hospital in his old hometown in the Congo. A friend has said of this good-hearted man: “Mutombo believes that God has given him this chance to do great things.”

Success and kindness

After her daughter was born, Julie Aigner-Clark searched for ways to share her love of music and art with her child. So she borrowed some equipment, and began filming children’s videos (录像) in her own house. The Baby Einstein Company was born, and in just five years her business grew to more than $20 million in sales. And she is using her success to help others — producing child safety videos with John Walsh of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Julie says of her new program: “I believe it’s the most important thing that I have ever done. I believe that children have the right to live in a world that is safe.”

Bravery and courage

A few weeks ago, Wesley Autrey was waiting at a Harlem subway station with his two little girls when he saw a man fall into the path of a train. With seconds to act, Wesley jumped onto the tracks, pulled the man into the space between the rails (铁轨), and held him as the train passed right above their heads. He insists he’s not a hero. He says: “We have got to show each other some love.”

21. What was Mutombo praised for?

A. Being a star in the NBA.  B. Being a student of medicine.

C. His work in the church.  D. His willingness to help the needy.

22. What did the Baby Einstein Company do at its beginning?

A. Produce safety equipment for children.

B. Make videos to help protect children.

C. Sell children’s music and artwork.

D. Look for missing and exploited children.

23. Why was Wesley Autrey praised as a hero?

A. He helped a man get across the rails.

B. He stopped a man from destroying the rails.

C. He protected two little girls from getting hurt.

D. He saved a person without considering his own safety.

B

In the future your automobile will run on water instead of gas! You will be able to buy a supercomputer that fits in your pocket! You might even drive a flying car!

Not all past predictions have been proven wrong. A few of them have been surprisingly accurate. Some great thinkers predicted the arrival of the credit card, the fax machine and even the internet years before they happened. But for each prediction that has come true, some others have missed by a mile. Many of these predictions didn’t consider how people would want to use the technology, or if people really needed it in their lives or not. Let’s look at some predictions from the not-too-distant past.

Robot Helpers

Where’s the robot in my kitchen? Nowhere, of course. And he’s probably not coming anytime soon. Robots do exist today, but mostly in factories and other working environments.Back in the 1950s, however, people said that by now personal robots would be in most people’s homes.So why hasn’t it happened? Maybe because robots are still too expensive and clumsy. And probably the idea of robots cooking our dinners and washing our clothes is just too strange. At home we seem to be doing fine without them.

Telephones of tomorrow

In 1964 an American company introduced the video telephone. They said by the year 2000 most people would have a video phone in their homes. But of course the idea hasn’t caught on yet. Why? The technology worked fine, but it overlooked something obvious: people desire for privacy. Would you want to have a video phone conversation with someone after you just stepped out of the shower? Probably not--it could be uncomfortable! Just because technology doesn’t always mean people will want to use it.

And finally, how about that crazy prediction of the flying car? It’s not so crazy any more! But a flying car remains one of the most wonderful technology ideas to catch our imagination. Keep watching the news or perhaps the sky outside your window to see what the future will bring.

24.The passage mainly deals with______.

A. predictions that can catch our imagination   B. predictions that haven’t come true

C. new technology can benefit our life        D. predictions that have come true

25. According to the passage, which of the following statements is NOT true?

A. Technology doesn’t always mean people will want to use it.

B. Predictions don’t need to consider people’s practical use of the technology.

C. Not all the high-tech things people thought we’d be using by now are widely used

D. High-tech things are not always convenient to people’s life.

26. Robot Helpers haven’t been used in most people’s homes because______.

A. using the kind of robots at home is simply a waste of time and money

B. the kind of robots hasn’t been developed yet

C. people find it difficult to control the kind of robots

D. the kind of robots won’t bring people practical use

27. How does the writer find the flying car?

A. It is too difficult to imagine.        B. It is too crazy an idea to realize.

C. It is likely to appear in the future.  D. It has been the focus of the news.

C

Carmen Arace Middle School is situated in the town of Bloomfield,but four years ago it faced many of the same challenges as inner—city schools nearby:low scores in standardized tests and dropping enrollment(入学率)of students.Then the hard-driving headmaster, Delore Bolton,persuaded her school to shake up the place by buying a laptop computer for each student and teacher to use in school and at home.For good measure,the board provided wireless Internet access at school.Total cost :$5 million.

Now an hour before classes start,every seat in the library is taken by students eager to get online.The teacher talks about rocks as students view them at a colorful website,after school students on buses pull laptops from backpacks to get started on homework.Since the computers arrived,scores in state tests are up 35%and the enrollment increases by 20%.

Indeed,school systems in rural areas are eager to follow Carmen Arace Middle School’s example.Angus King,the state governor, has proposed using$50 million from an unexpected budget to supply computers for students.
