  I didn't go to Colorado to ski. I went because I was persuaded to attend a two-day class at the Bridgestone Winter Driving School there.
  Everyone in my family came along with me. The first morning, we sat in a small classroom and our instructor, Robert, told us what to expect. The course, he explained, was designed to make the cars slip and slide on ice and snow. “If you listen to us,” Robert assured the class, “you’11 be fine."
  On a snowy day when I was 4,I had a car accident. I wasn't seriously hurt that day, but over the years the shock transformed into anxiety. When it snowed, I often called another parent at the elementary school my daughter attends to ask if he or she wouldn't mind driving my daughter the half-mile to school in the morning.
  That first morning in Colorado, after we left the classroom and headed out to the track, my heart was racing. By the time Robert said, “Cristina, it's your turn." I was lightheaded. I carefully did what I was instructed to do but when I turned, I pulled the wheel too hard and hit a block of ice, my car turning almost 180 degrees. When the car came to a stop, I sat rigid, trying to catch my breath. Part of me wanted to get out and never drive again. But I was sitting there safely, wasn’t I ? I had overcome one of my greatest fears — losing control of the car. I even felt a little excited.
  For the rest of the class, I continued practising, and I got better enough so that a week later, when I arrived home and there was snow on the ground, I didn't even think about calling another parent to drive my daughter to school. “I can do this,” I told myself. And I did.
1.In the classroom, Robert intended to help participants to____ .
A.know each other
B.build up confidence
C.learn about the course
D.put theory into practice
2.The accident made the author afraid to____ .
A.have kids in her car
B.drive on snowy days
C.drive long distances
D.be in a car by herself
3.What can best describe the author's feelings after the first practice?
4.What do we know about the class?
A.It's tiring.
B.It's helpful.
C.It's expensive.
D.It's interesting.

  Most people don't notice I'm polite, which is the point. I am big and look less energetic.Still, every year or so, someone takes me aside and says,“You actually are polite, aren’t you?” I'm always thrilled. They noticed. That's the thing. When we talk about politeness, we usually think of please; thank you; I like your hat; etc. AW we need to do is to hear, not to notice.
  When I was in high school, I read etiquette manuals (手册) . No one noticed my politeness except for one kid. He yelled at me about it. It's strange that you are always so polite,” he said. I took that as praise and made a note to hide my politeness further. Real politeness, I reasoned, was invisible(看不见的) . It adapted itself to the situation.
  Politeness leaves doors open. I’ve met so many people whom, if I had trusted my first impressions, I would never have wanted to meet again. Yet many of them are now great friends. One of those people is my wife. On our first date, she told me at length that she had an operation to remove a cyst (瘤) from her body. This is a cyst with hair and teeth. Of course, it killed the chemistry. But when I walked her home, I told her I'd had a great time. We talked a little after that. I kept everything pleasant and brief. Much later, I learned that she’d been having a very bad day in a very bad year.
  People silently suffer from all kinds of terrible things. The good thing about politeness is you can regard these people exactly the same and wait to see what happens. You don't have to have an opinion.You don't need to make a judgment.
  Last week, my two-year-old son, Abraham met a foreign woman in the playground. Out of curiosity, I suppose, he asked, “What's your name?” The woman told him. Then he put out his little hand and said, “Nice to meet you!” Everyone laughed and he smiled. He shared with her his firmest handshake, like I taught him.
1.Many people don't think the author is polite at first because he doesn't ____.
A.look polite
B.say polite words
C.listen to others politely
D.behave politely towards strangers
2.What does the underlined word “it” in Paragraph 2 refer to?
A.The author's good manners.
B.The author's strange behavior.
C.The author always making notes.
D.The author reading etiquette manuals.
3.The author writes Paragraph 3 to show that politeness can____ .
A.keep everything pleasant
B.help people make friends
C.be good for people's health
D.give people second chances
4.What's the author's attitude towards his son's behavior?

  In science, people copy ideas from nature or natural processes to solve problems or to create products which will serve a specific purpose to help us. This is called biomimicry and its influence can be seen in many everyday products.
  We are all familiar with Velcro? (魔术贴) .It was invented in 1941 by a Swiss engineer called George de Mestral, who found some seeds stuck to his dog's hair. Under the microscope, he discovered that these seeds had hooks (钩) on them, so they could easily stick to clothing or hair. He copied this idea and invented Velcro?. It was initially unpopular with fashion companies but after it was used by NASA (美国国家航空航天局) to stop items floating in space, it became popular with children's clothing companies.
  More recently, swimwear has also been influenced by nature. The Speedo Fastskin, a controversial swimsuit, was seen at the Beijing Olympics and worn by 28 of the 33 gold medal winners. The technology is based on the rough patterns on a shark's skin, which allows the shark to swim faster. Shark skin also stops bacteria growing on it so scientists are copying this surface to design cleaner hospitals.
  For NASA, protecting astronauts' eyes from the sun's rays and other dangerous radiation is very important. Scientists studied how eagles see things clearly. They discovered that a substance(物质) called yellow oil in their eyes does the trick. NASA copied this oil and it is now used by astronauts and pilots in Eagle Eyes glasses. In addition to protecting eyes from all the dangerous rays, these sunglasses also help people see more clearly in even poor weather conditions such as fog.
  It appears that the influence of biomimicry is unlimited. so it will be interesting to see what solutions nature provides us with in the future.
1.George de Mestral invented Velcro____ .
A.to challenge fashion companies
B.after he examined some seeds
C.after he studied his dog's hair
D.to satisfy NASA’s demand
2.At the Beijing Olympics, the Speedo Fastskin? Swimsuit___ .
A.was recommended by champions
B.helped swimmers perform better
C.received widespread approval
D.made swimmers healthier
3.What makes eagles see clearly?
A.The size of their eyes.
B.The shape of their eyes.
C.The colour of their eyes.
D.The substance in their eyes.
4.What's the best title for the text?
A.The future of biomimicry
B.The magic of biomimicry
C.The purpose of biomimicry
D.The limitation of biomimicry

Fitting in fitness
  Do you find excuses not to exercise? ①Here are a few ways to get you going.
  Do what you love.
  The easiest way to fall into the habit of doing exercise is to choose an activity you enjoy — one that doesn't feel like exercise, even though it is. ②If you play to your strengths, you’ 11 find fitness activities you can enjoy for years.
  Choose your hour.
  Studies have shown that people who work out in the morning are most likely to stick with a routine. By doing exercise before the day starts, they can avoid the last-minute scheduling conflicts. But if you’re not a morning person, choose whatever time works best for you. ③
  Call it by another name.
  ③If it's something you have to do anyway - like washing the car or planting some bushes in the yard - you’ ll achieve two goals at once.
  Partner up.
  Exercise is more fun when you do it with others. ⑤On days when your motivation is low, you’re more likely to stick with the programme to avoid disappointing your exercise partners. You can also train with an expert. A personal trainer will help you set goals , design a personalized fitness programme, and vary your routine to keep it challenging.
A. Ask yourself: what am I good at?
B. Make fitness part of your social routine.
C. If you’re in top form from noon to 1 pm, aim for a lunchtime workout.
D. For example, you can join a running, walking, hiking, biking or tennis club.
E. If a damp T-shirt is not your idea of a good time, try gentler forms of exercise.
F. Would you rather do anything else — even sort your socks or clean the fridge?
G. Substitute some challenging household activity for the standard exercise routine.

  I was on my way school this afternoon when I met with a young American couple. They looked worrying, so I went up to them and asked if only they’d like any help. They said that they wanted to go to the railway station, but they didn’t know the way. Heard this, I offered to lead them here. They were so thankful to me that they said “thank you” again and again but I felt very proud of me. But when I arrived at the school, I found myself later for class. I had to explain that had happened to my teacher. She said I have done a good deed and praised me.
