It was the first night of Chanukah（光明节） and the night before Ellie' s last final examination．As a freshman she was more than ready to go home for the first time since August．She' d packed every thing she needed to take home except the 8 candles that are lit every night of Chanukah．Ellie had been so tempted to pack the menorah（烛台） earlier and "pass over" the first night' s lighting．However, 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 said．It was signed "Susan．" It was dated the day that Ellie had left after finals．Ellie was totally confused．She didn't know a Susan．Believing 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 door．There, standing in the hall was a woman Ellie didn't recognize．"I'm Susan," she said．I 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 Ellie．Susan 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 Chanukah．She really didn't want to light her candles either．Not 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 alone．The sisters had always taken turns lighting the first candle and this wasn't Susan' s year．She 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 cry．It 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 say．Unfortunately, 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 ourselves．Religion 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 yourself．On the surface you, may think, I am fine．Your brain tells you that because logically you know there is nothing wrong with you．Yet, when you meet a guy you like, your first reaction is: He is way out of my league．I d better run before I get hurt．
Then let’s make a slight change．In order to attract love into your life you have to first develop love within yourself．You have to give off love．You have to start with the most important person in your life —YOU．
The problem is, we expect ourselves to be perfect．When we don’t meet those standards, each shortcoming gets magnified （放大）in our eyes out of proportion．The trick is to love ourselves exactly the way we are, including the shortcomings．They are what make you human．Once you learn to accept and love yourself exactly the way you are, you will step into your power．You 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" you．Being at peace with who you
are will attract a partner who will value you as much as you value yourself．
55．You are____ when you lack love in yourself．
A．weak in health B．unconscious of it
C．proud of yourself D．upset about yourself
56．What may contribute to a person’s lack of love in himself according to the writer?
A．Being blamed over and over again．
B．Being refused in a love relationship．
C．Getting little return while giving much．
D．Getting disappointed repeatedly in school achievement．
57．What should you do to find love in yourself?
A．Pay more than you get．
B．Accept whatever you are．
C．Care for nobody but yourself．
D．Overlook your shortcoming．
58．We can learn from the underlined sentence in the last passage that ___．
A．scolding a person for his wrong doing is unwise
B．loving yourself is the key to finding love in others
C．loving a person means accepting whatever he has got
D．true beauty is not measured by a person’s facial features
Stieg Larsson died before the overwhelming global success of his M Millennium" novels —The Gid with the Dragon Tattoo", "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet' s Nest"．But the Swedish journalist-turned-novelist had actually intended that his "Millennium" series would include at least five books, a plan cut short by his death in 2004．In fact, he died before any of his three "Millennium" novels featuring Lisbeth Salander were published．
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） heritage．For 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 series．She 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 says．She 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 family．She 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 horizon．Only 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 comer．The news is sure to drum up public' s attention for her autobiography and —should it ever appear —the fourth and final novel．
59．Gabrielsson claimed the right to complete the fourth novel because ____．
A．she was Stieg Larsson' s girlfriend．
B．she had a hand in writing the novel already．
C．she could obtain the right from her family．
D．she had got the permission from the publisher．

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 region．As 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 name．Although 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 biodiversity．Governments have focused on trying to move the country out of poverty and conflict through exploiting its natural resources, not through scientific resource development．But Cogollo sees things a different way．By educating the public about alternative uses for the land, and researching plants' potential uses—including as medicines, foods, and bio-fuels—Golombi-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 gatherings．What had been a club for wealthy orchid enthusiasts now offers free admission and attracts rich and poor alike．The success of the botanical garden has in turn contributed to the transformation of Medellm．Once 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," Dr．Forcro says．"People sitting there had no idea of environmental conservation, and then they did．"
63．What’s the main feature of vallenato music?
A．It records the history of Colombia．
B．It sounds like the voice of plants．
C．It plays with local instruments．
D．It has origins from all over the world．
64．While protecting the environment, Cogolla attached importance to ___．
A．the research of music
B．the protection of plants
C．the improvement of people’s life
D．the communication with different people
65．The purpose of rebuilding the botanical garden is ____．
A．to raise the public’s environmental consciousness
B．to set up a club for rich orchid enthusiasts
C．to give talks about vallenato music
D．to create a fair economic system
66．People from different backgrounds came to Cogolla’s reports about biodiversity mainly because of .
A．their common interest in Vallenato music
B．their improved environmental consciousness
C．his popularity in environmental protection
D．his 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 stories．In fact, it is．A software company has essentially taught computers to write short news stories through artificial intelligence．If 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 form．In 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 opinion．Yet many English teachers forbid the use of our favorite pronoun in expository （说明文） writing．These 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 essays．But 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 school．And 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 text．Students 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 entertainers—the people who know how to tell stories, the future belongs to the storytellers．
So let's give kids an early start．Let1 s help them learn the craft of writing in a way that's natural, expressive, and human．It will be a lot of fun．And if we have to break up a few topic sentences along the way to allow a story to come into being, so be it．And that, dear reader, is my thesis statement．

A．an unnatural writing

C．how students should use words in storytelling
D．how ridiculous some school rules of writing are
69．What does "it" in Para．5 refer to?
A．An essay． B．Storytelling． C．Writing． D．A thesis statement．

A．the power of storytelling is great

C．computers can be taught to write stories easily

“Good health is the foundation of a fulfilling life．" said Chairman Mao．“Health is wealth （财富）!” goes an old saying. And it is often heard that money can not bring everything, but without it, one can do nothing.
