It was the first night of Chanukah(光明节) and the night before Ellie' s last final examinationAs a freshman she was more than ready to go home for the first time since AugustShe' d packed every thing she needed to take home except the 8 candles that are lit every night of ChanukahEllie had been so tempted to pack the menorah(烛台) earlier and "pass over" the first night' s lightingHowever, Ellie ended up lighting the candles, said the blessings, placed the menorah on her window and spent the rest of the evening in her room studying

Ellie’s first winter holiday was uneventful, and when she returned to her dormitory on the day before classes started she was surprised to find a small note on her door"Thank you," the note saidIt was signed "Susan" It was dated the day that Ellie had left after finalsEllie was totally confusedShe didn't know a SusanBelieving that the letter had been delivered to her by mistake, Ellie put the note on her desk and forgot about it

About half an hour before she was getting ready to head out for dinner, there was a knock at Ellie s doorThere, standing in the hall was a woman Ellie didn't recognize"I'm Susan," she saidI wanted to thank you in person but you' d already left before I finished my finals

"Are you sure it's me you' re looking for?" asked EllieSusan asked if she could come in and explain

It seemed that Susan had been facing the same dilemma that Ellie had been that first night of ChanukahShe really didn't want to light her candles eitherNot because she was packing or was heading home, but because her older sister Hannah had been killed by a drunk driver ten months earlier, and this was the first year that she' d have to light the candles aloneThe sisters had always taken turns lighting the first candle and this wasn't Susan' s yearShe just couldn't bring herself to take her sister's place, it was just too painful to even think about Chanukah without Hannah and she had decided to pass over the entire holiday

Susan said that she had just finished studying and was closing her window when she happened to glance across the courtyard and saw the candles shining in Ellie’s window"I started to cryIt was if Hannah had taken her turn and put the candles in your window for me to see" All Susan had to do was close her eyes and remember the candles in the window, the ones that Hannah had lit the last time it was her turn

If you are searching for a love relationship, but keep getting disappointed or if you feel that you give a lot and get little in return, then there is one question I want you to ask yourself, the answer to which will transform your entire life experience: Do you love yourself?

"Yes, it’s obvious, I love myself!" a lot of people may sayUnfortunately, in 90% of cases, the decisive reason why you haven’t been able to attract love into your life is your lack of love towards yourself

When we were scolded for wrong doing on a regular basis, or told we weren’t "good enough" by our well-meaning parents, we took it exactly and personally, and the "not good enough" part was impressed in our hidden mind, forever robbing us of the ability to love ourselvesReligion added to this by telling us we are all sinners (罪人), so it's in our nature to do things that are "wrong" You may not be aware that you hate or are ashamed of some aspect of yourselfOn the surface you, may think, I am fineYour brain tells you that because logically you know there is nothing wrong with youYet, when you meet a guy you like, your first reaction is: He is way out of my leagueI d better run before I get hurt

Then let’s make a slight changeIn order to attract love into your life you have to first develop love within yourselfYou have to give off loveYou have to start with the most important person in your life YOU

The problem is, we expect ourselves to be perfectWhen we don’t meet those standards, each shortcoming gets magnified (放大)in our eyes out of proportionThe trick is to love ourselves exactly the way we are, including the shortcomingsThey are what make you humanOnce you learn to accept and love yourself exactly the way you are, you will step into your powerYou will give off inner strength, love and beauty the kind of beauty that is not measured by weight-to-height ratio or the perfection of your facial features).No longer will you need someone else to "complete" youBeing at peace with who you

are will attract a partner who will value you as much as you value yourself

55You are____ when you lack love in yourself

       Aweak in health                                      Bunconscious of it

       Cproud of yourself                                 Dupset about yourself

56What may contribute to a person’s lack of love in himself according to the writer?

       ABeing blamed over and over again

       BBeing refused in a love relationship

       CGetting little return while giving much

       DGetting disappointed repeatedly in school achievement

57What should you do to find love in yourself?

       APay more than you get

       BAccept whatever you are

       CCare for nobody but yourself

       DOverlook your shortcoming

58We can learn from the underlined sentence in the last passage that ___

       Ascolding a person for his wrong doing is unwise

       Bloving yourself is the key to finding love in others

       Cloving a person means accepting whatever he has got

       Dtrue beauty is not measured by a person’s facial features

However, Larsson's long-time partner Eva Gabrielsson is locked in an extended dispute with Larsson ' s family over the rights to his literary(文学的) heritageFor now, fans will have to be satisfied with the few lines about Larsson' s personal life offered by Gabrielsson' s autobiography "Millennium, Stieg and Me" In the 160-page book, which is to be released in the US later this year, Gabrielsson records how she and Larsson met and explored the creation of the famous crime seriesShe shared her plans to secure the rights to complete Larsson' s fourth novel, saying that she has the draft of the fourth book and can finish it"Stieg and I often wrote together," Gabrielsson saysShe refuses, however, to share any details about the forthcoming novel, saying only, "It is not my intention to reveal here the plot of the fourth volume…On the other hand, I want to say that Lisbeth little by little frees herself from her ghosts and her enemies"

But because Gabrielsson and Larsson never married and Larsson never left a will, Gabrielsson says she will finish the book if and when she gets rights to her late partner" s works from his familyShe expresses concern at the way Larsson? s family is handling his legacy and the Millennium brand"I don' t want to see coffee mugs and other  ‘Millennium' merchandise; I want to see the real Stieg respected," she writes

Larsson' s publisher has now seemed to throw cold water on the view that that day will come anytime soon"There is no fourth book from Stieg Larsson on the horizonOnly the owner of the estate (遗产), now controlled by his family, has the right to decide on the publication of a fourth book, and they have no intention of doing so at the 'moment" In spite of Gabrielsson's concerns, a Hollywood adaptation of the first novel, starring Daniel Craig, is around the comerThe news is sure to drum up public' s attention for her autobiography and should it ever appear the fourth and final novel

As a boy growing up on a farm near the Caribbean coast of Colombia (哥伦比亚), Alvaro Cogollo loved both plants and vallenato, the traditional music of the regionAs a biology student in the 1970s, Cogollo traveled around the country to document its rich botanical heritage and, informally, studied the music that tells an important story of Colombia

"We were colonized by the Spanish; later, Africans were brought as slaves to exploit gold mines; and the native peoples were already here," he says"That is what authentic vallenato represents with its three instruments: the accordion (手风琴), from a European origin; la caja drum, which is of African origin; and la guacharaca, a beating instrument made from a palm tree, which is from native American orgin.”

Over the course of his nearly four-decade career, Cogollo has discovered more than 150 new species of plants, 17 of which bear his nameAlthough Cogollo never earned a PhD, his colleagues say he' s made invaluable contributions to knowledge of Colombia’s plant at a time when deforestation (砍伐森林) is a big threat to the country' s biodiversityGovernments have focused on trying to move the country out of poverty and conflict through exploiting its natural resources, not through scientific resource developmentBut Cogollo sees things a different wayBy educating the public about alternative uses for the land, and researching plants' potential usesincluding as medicines, foods, and bio-fuelsGolombi-a could improve its economy and quality of life without neglecting conservation, Cogollo says

Cogollo's other major achievement has been the transformation of a neglected botanical garden in a Medellm neighborhood into a well-known center for research, environmental education, and community gatheringsWhat had been a club for wealthy orchid enthusiasts now offers free admission and attracts rich and poor alikeThe success of the botanical garden has in turn contributed to the transformation of MedellmOnce seriously damaged, by violent wars between aimed groups, the city has had some improvements that include better public safety, tougher pollution controls and the creation of green spaces

What Cogollo has focused his latest efforts on is teaching Colombians from all social classes and backgrounds about the importance of biodiversity and conservation through a shared musical heritage "The fact that Alvaro' s been able to give talks to audiences filled with all kinds of people is very important, and that's what happened in Medellin the first time he talked about vallenato music," DrForcro says"People sitting there had no idea of environmental conservation, and then they did"

63What’s the main feature of vallenato music?

       AIt records the history of Colombia

       BIt sounds like the voice of plants

       CIt plays with local instruments

       DIt has origins from all over the world

64While protecting the environment, Cogolla attached importance to ___

       Athe research of music

       Bthe protection of plants

       Cthe improvement of people’s life

       Dthe communication with different people

65The purpose of rebuilding the botanical garden is ____

       Ato raise the public’s environmental consciousness

       Bto set up a club for rich orchid enthusiasts

       Cto give talks about vallenato music

       Dto create a fair economic system

66People from different backgrounds came to Cogolla’s reports about biodiversity mainly because of      .

       Atheir common interest in Vallenato music

       Btheir improved environmental consciousness

       Chis popularity in environmental protection

       Dhis previous achievements in the city development

In a world where your iPhone comes with a woman who answers your questions, reads your texts aloud, and gives directions, it may not seem like a big deal that computers are now writing storiesIn fact, it isA software company has essentially taught computers to write short news stories through artificial intelligenceIf we can teach a computer the elements of story telling, why can't we teach our students the same thing?

Remember the five-paragraph essay? It's still around, still being promoted as if it were a literary formIn fact, it is an unnatural invention, one that must have been produced by academics who don't write much themselves

Writers engaged in the act of trying to say something on paper don’t write artificial thesis statements (中心论点).They needn't avoid using "I," especially when telling about a personal experience or expressing an opinionYet many English teachers forbid the use of our favorite pronoun in expository (说明文) writingThese are the folks who teach kids not to use the same word twice, so that if you've described a box as "small" in paragraph one, it must become "diminutive" if it shows up in paragraph two

Many teachers also disapprove of using dialogue in essaysBut why so? The problem with teaching writing as if it were disconnected from speech is that students start to see it simply as an unnatural activity they do in schoolAnd yet we all tell stories and engage in long "he-said/she-said" conversations

If we start from it with students, we can help them see the links that exist between speech and textStudents can learn a lot, for example, by being asked to tell a family story aloud and then to write it down

Daniel Pink, in his bestselling book, "A Whole New Mind" says that American society' s enthusiasm with left-brained rational thinking is finally giving way to a more balanced approach, one where we start to value and reward right-brain thinkers the artists, the designers, the entertainersthe people who know how to tell stories, the future belongs to the storytellers

So let's give kids an early startLet1 s help them learn the craft of writing in a way that's natural, expressive, and humanIt will be a lot of funAnd if we have to break up a few topic sentences along the way to allow a story to come into being, so be itAnd that, dear reader, is my thesis statement

67The writer believes that the five-paragraph essay is ____

       Aan unnatural writing

       Ban effective writing method

       Cwritten by scholars

       Dused by storytellers

68The example of "small" and "diminutive" is used to show ____

       Ahow a good essay uses words

       Bhow different a speech is from text

       Chow students should use words in storytelling

       Dhow ridiculous some school rules of writing are

69What does "it" in Para5 refer to?

       AAn essay          BStorytelling       CWriting            DA thesis statement

70The writer intended to tell the readers that ____

       Athe power of storytelling is great

       Bwriting stories is a good way to learn writing

       Ccomputers can be taught to write stories easily

       Dhuman being is smarter than computer in writing
