My Teacher in the School of Life
I spent the opening day of school this year at DeMatha Catholic High School in much the same way I spent the first day of classes 36 30 years ago; I sat in Dr Charles E. Offutt’s British literature class, listening to him 37 what the seniors would learn and get them excited about the journey they would 38. I’m the principal of the school now, but for a few minutes I was back in 1975, 39 what the future held.
I have been learning from Dr Offutt for 30 of the 51 years he has been teaching at DeMatha. He not only taught me to think, he 40 me, as much by example as by 41, that it was my moral duty to do so and to 42 others.
Neither of us could know how our 43 would develop over the years. When I first came back to DeMatha to teach English, I worked for Dr Offutt, the then department chair. After several years, I was 44 department chair, and our relationship changed 45. I thought that it might be 46 chairing the department, since all of my former English teachers were still there, but Dr Offutt 47 me throughout. He knew when to give me 48 about curriculum, tests and personnel, and when to let me design my own course.
In 1997, I needed his advice about leaving DeMatha to become principal at another school. If he had asked me to stay at DeMatha, I might have. 49, he encouraged me to seize the new 50.
Five years ago, I became the 51 of DeMatha. Once again, Dr Offutt was there for me, letting me know that I could 52 on him as I tried to fill big shoes. I’ve learned from him that great teachers have a(n) 53 wealth of lessons to teach. 54 his students don’t know it yet, I know how 55 they are; I’m still one of them.

I still remember the days when I was a youthful student in an engineering school. I lived a casual life, without caring about the future. I smoked, drank with friends and made girl friends. Little did I realize that casualness would certainly lead to loss.
Two yeas had passed and I was staring down a report card that highlighted FAIL in more than half the subjects. I didn’t care, at least not till my dad found about it. You see, I studied in India and unlike the United States where the students are expected to finance their own education, my dad financed me.
Then came the day when my dad found out my habit of smoking. He lost his temper but he just told me, “Son, your allowance is cut in half from this moment on”. It hit me like a roundhouse kick(回旋踢)from Bruce Lee. I was jolted(震摇)out of my bones! I couldn’t comprehend how to pay off the debts that I had accumulated in college. I owed everybody money: the grocery store, the bars, the restaurants, my friends, etc. I was living a life filled with credit.
When I went back to college, I knew that if I don’t change the way I live my life I won’t be able to pay everybody off. So I decided to make some changes, drastic changes. I quit smoking, cut off from my friends who led me down the wrong road, starting hanging out in libraries and reading my engineering books.
One year later, I went from a miserable failure to a magna cum laude(优等成绩). Life was never the same again. This incident made me know that anything is possible if you take action and do something about it, however small or large. Even today it still motivates me when I feel that I’m about to lose or give up. It reminds me that I can do it!

Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, made his first publics appearance since going on medical leave six weeks ago, taking the stage at a San Francisco media event to introduce the iPad 2, the second generation of the company’s tablet computer.
Thin but energetic, Mr. Jobs showed off a thinner iPad. “ We’ve been working on this product for a while and I just didn’t want to miss this day.” He said.
His absence has concerned investors, especially since the group has given no details of his condition. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2004 and had a liver transplant during almost six months of medical leave in 2009. People close to him said last month his health had been changing.
Apple’s stock(股票)rose more than 2 per cent in the minutes after Mr. Jobs began speaking, then gave up some of its gain as he detailed the iPad 2.
The iPad 2 will go on sale in black and white versions in the US on March 11 and in 26 other countries, including the UK and Germany, on March 25.
Most of the improvements in the latest version had been expected, including a camera in the front and back for video conferencing, taking photos and videos. The iPad 2 is one-third thinner than the original tablet and slightly lighter. In the US it will work with AT&T and Verizon, the top two mobile carriers(运营商).The pricing will be the same to the 2010 iPad at its introduction, ranging from $499 to $829 in six models. But Apple dropped prices on the older iPad on Wednesday by $100 across the board.
Apple has made the most of its year-long head start in tablets, selling 15,000,000 units of the older iPad last year and taking about 85 per cent of the market. It is predicted that the iPad 2 would claim 80 per cent of the US market this year, or 20,000,000 out of 24,000,000 total shipped(出货量).
Motorola, Blackberry maker Research in Motion, Samsung and others have brought out competing tablets, many based on Google’s Android software.
Mr. Jobs said the rest of the field was still catching up with the first iPad and their markets for applications designed for tablets had, at best, 100 small programs. This compares with 65,000 on Apple’s application store.
66、Why are the investors of Apple worried according to the text?
A. Apple’s stock price changes a lot.
B. Steve Jobs’ health condition is not stable.
C. The iPad 2 has some technical drawbacks.
D. Apple faces strong competition from other companies.
67、In what respect are the iPad 2 and the 2010 iPad exactly alike?
A. The weight. B. The camera.
C. The thickness. D. The pricing at the introduction.
68、How many tablet computers were sold in the market last year?
A. About 15,000,000. B. About 17,000,000.
C. About 20,000,000. D. About 24,000,000.
69、What makes Apple’s tablets superior to the competing tablets of other companies?
A. The low price. B. The Android software.
C. The full kinds of models. D. The tens of thousands of applications.
70、What is the best title for the text?
A. Jobs on Stage to Introduce iPad 2 B. iPad 2 Better than the Original
C. Best Applications for iPad 2 D. iPad 2 vs. Competitors
Elena Kagan has reached a lifelong goal: becoming a Justice on the United States Supreme Court. The US Senate confirmed Kagan on Thursday by a vote of 63-37. She replaces Justice John Paul Stevens, who retired in June.
Kagan will take a sacred oath(誓言)to uphold the Constitution of the United States on Saturday at a swearing-in ceremony. The new Justice will bring the number of women sitting on the nation’s highest court to three. Kagan joins Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor-all three New Yorkers.
Kagan is the fourth woman in history to sit on the Supreme Court. Justice Sandra Day O’Connor was the first female Justice. She was appointed by President Ronald Reagan and served from 1981to 2006.
Kagan, who is 50 years old, is the second Justice appointed by President Barack Obama. (He appointed Justice Sotomayor in 2009.) Obama told reporters on Thursday that Kagan will make an “outstanding Justice who understands that her rulings affect people.” He also noted that the addition of another woman to the Supreme Court marks a sign of progress for the country. Obama and Kagan will celebrate her confirmation with a ceremony at the White House today.
Kagan has spent most of her adult life working with the law. She served in President Clinton’s administration as a legal adviser, was the head of Harvard Law School, and until her confirmation Thursday, was the US Solicitor General-one of the most powerful lawyers in the federal government. Kagan was born in New York City. She grew up in an apartment on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the strong-willed, independent middle sister sandwiched between two brothers.
Kagan’s mother was a public school teacher who taught fifth and sixth grades. Her father was a lawyer.
The new Justice once wore a judge’s robe in a picture for her high-school yearbook. Now she’ll be wearing real ones as she and the other eight Justices decide some of the most important legal cases.
71、What can we infer according to paragraph 1?
A. Elena Kagan has become the only female Justice of America.
B. It’s Kagan’s dream to be a Justice on the United States Supreme Court.
C. Kagan achieved this position in the election by beating John Paul Stevens.
D. It will take a long time for Kagan to become a Justice on the United States Supreme
72、Which of the following is TRUE according to the text?
A. To take the place of an old Justice, a Justice was elected by the Senate.
B. There will be four women working in the United States Supreme Court.
C. Kagan will take a sacred oath before taking in part in the election.
D. No one but a New Yorker can be a Justice of the Supreme Court.
73、What can we infer from Obama’s words?
A. He will appoint more women Justices to the Supreme Court.
B. He appointed Kagan as she had done a good job before.
C. There is much to be improved on the Supreme Court.
D. He is sure Kagan will be excellent in her new work.

第一节 阅读表达（共5小题, 满分10分）
【1】The British summer is extremely beautiful. Trees, flowers, birds and butterflies make the whole country like a big garden. However, many British people have noticed that butterflies have been gradually disappearing from this picturesque scenery during the past several years. What has happened to them?
【2】Butterfly Conservation, a charity in the UK, is running a survey to help answer this question. The result is more serious than people expected. According to the survey, among 59 butterfly species found in Britain, more than three quarters of them are suffering a declining population, including the most popular ones. What’s more, half of all butterfly species are in the danger of dying out. Some common species such as the small Tortoiseshell butterfly and the Wall butterfly are dropping dramatically. The latter cannot even be seen in many parts of central and southern England. The Blue butterfly was commonly seen in the south. However, it has started colonizing(迁徙至)Edinburgh in the past few years.
【3】The numbers of butterflies have dropped to a record low in the past three years largely because the summer in the UK is getting cooler and their habitat is also worsening. Fortunately Britain is experiencing a long hot summer this year compared to the last few summers. Conservationists believe the warm weather will bring some benefit to the butterflies.
【4】Sir David Attenborough, president of Butterfly Conservation, said: “Large quantities of butterflies tell us that all is well with nature. When they decline it’s a warning that other wildlife will be soon _______ .”
【5】The survey is still going on. The public are also encouraged to keep track of the UK’s butterfly population. The organizers hope the survey will help raise public awareness of the value of butterflies in the UK. Butterflies give an indication of the well-being of nature and the environment.
