In early 2007 I had bought tickets to a Christian concert for myself and two other family members, but later I decided to 36 my 4-year-old son along.
I couldn't find another ticket in the area we were sitting in, so I started 37 online for four tickets so we could all 38 . Imagine my surprise when the four 39 tickets I needed happened to be on the front row! Thinking it was a 40 , I tried again several times and each time the same tickets came up. I knew it had to be God, so after getting 41 the initial（最初的）shock I decided to 42 the front row tickets, which still left me 43 the three original tickets. Not knowing what to 44 with them, I asked around but did not have any 45 . Then my husband said two of his customers wanted to go to the same 46 but couldn't afford it.
We went to their house and they said they had a friend they wanted to take with them. 47 it turned out, this couple does a prison ministry and had been 48 this concert for quite a while, but even after offering to pay me I 49 and told them to continue working in the prisons teaching those men and women to become 50 people. This couple lost a 51 several years ago and listening to this music could 52 them in their healing process. The 53 of this particular concert was "Give It Away", and I thank God for the 54 to give this to them.
It turned out to be one of the best nights for all of us, and it was all 55 my 4-year-old boy wanted to hear the music as well.
Zoe Chambers was a successful PR(Public Relations) consultant and life was going well — she had a great job, beautiful flat and a busy social life in London. Then one evening in June last year, she received a text message telling her she was out of work. “The first two weeks were the most difficult to live through.” she said. “After everything I’d done for the company, they dismissed me by text! I was so angry and I just didn’t feel like looking for another job. I hate everything about the city and my life.”
Then, Zoe received an invitation from an old school friend, Kathy, to come and stay. Kathy and her husband, Huw, had just bought a farm in north-west Wales. Zoe jumped at the chance to spend a weekend away from London, and now, ten months later she is still on the farm.
"The moment I arrived at Kathy's farm, I loved it and I knew I wanted to stay." said Zoe. "Everything about my past life suddenly seemed meaningless."
Zoe has been working on the farm since October of last year and says she has no regrets. "It's a hard life, physically very tiring." she says. "In London 1 was stressed and often mentally exhausted. But this is a good, healthy tiredness. Here, all I need to put me in a good mood is a hot bath and one of Kathy's wonderful dinners."
Zoe says she has never felt bored on the farm. Every day brings a new experience. Kathy has been teaching her how to ride a horse and she has learnt to drive a tractor. Since Christmas, she has been helping with the lambing — watching a lamb being born is unbelievable, she says, "It's one of the most moving experiences I've ever had. I could never go back to city life now."
When working as a PR consultant in London, Zoe thought she lived a ______life.

What is the nature of the scientific attitude, the attitude of the man or woman who studies and applies physics, biology, chemistry, geology, engineering, medicine or any other science?
We all know that science plays an important role in our societies. However, many people believe that our progress depends on two different aspects of science. The first aspect is the application of the machines, products and systems of knowledge that scientists and technologists develop. The second is the application of the special methods of thought and action that scientists use in their work.
What are these special methods of thinking and acting? First of all, it seems that a successful scientist is curious - he wants to find out how and why the universe works. He usually pays attention to problems which he notices have no satisfying explanation, and looks for relationships even if the data available seem to be unconnected. Moreover, he thinks he can improve the existing conditions and enjoys trying to solve the problems which this involves.
He is a good observer, accurate, patient and objective and uses the facts he observes to the fullest. For example, trained observers obtain a very large amount of information about a star mainly from the accurate analysis of the simple lines that appear in a spectrum(光谱).
He does not accept statements which are not based on the most complete evidence available. He rejects authority as the only basis for truth. Scientists always check statements and make experiments carefully and objectively.
Furthermore, he does not readily accept his own idea, since he knows that man is the least reliable of scientific instruments and that a number of factors tend to disturb objective investigation.
Lastly, he is full of imagination since he often has to look for relationships in data which are not only complex but also frequently incomplete. Furthermore, he needs imagination if he wants to guess how processes work and how events take place.
These seem to be some of the ways in which a successful scientist or technologist thinks and acts.
Many people believe that science helps society to progress through_________
|A．knowledge only.||B．more than one aspect.|
|C．technology only.||D．the use of machines.|
Which of the following statements about a curious scientist is TRUE?
|A．He doesn’t find confidence and pleasure in work.|
|B．He is interested in problems that are explained.|
|C．He makes efforts to investigate potential connections.|
|D．He looks for new ways of acting.|
According to the passage, a successful scientist would NOT_______________.
|A．easily believe in unchecked statements.|
|B．easily criticize others' research work.|
|C．always use his imagination in work.|
|D．always use evidence from observation.|
Which word can be used to describe the data that a good scientist uses?
Any car accident is frightening, but an accident in which your vehicle is thrown into the water, with you trapped inside, is absolutely terrifying. However, most deaths result from panic, without a plan or understanding what is happening to the car in the water. By adopting a brace(支撑) position, acting decisively and getting out fast, you can save yourself from a sinking vehicle.
Brace yourself for impact (撞击力). As soon as you're aware that you're going off the road and into a body of water, adopt a brace position. The impact could set off the airbag system in your vehicle, so you should place both hands on the steering wheel in the "ten and two" position.
Undo your seatbelt. Unbuckle the children, starting with the oldest first. Forget the cell phone call. Your car isn't going to wait for you to make the call.
Leave the door alone at this stage and concentrate on the window. A car's electrical system should work for up to three minutes in water, so try the method of opening it electronically first. Many people don't think about the window as an escape option either because of panic or misinformation about doors and sinking.
Break the window. If you aren't able to open the window, or it only opens halfway, you'll need to break it with an object or your foot. It may feel counter-intuitive (有悖常理的) to let water into the car.
Escape when the car has equalized. If it has reached the dramatic stage where the car cabin has been filled with water and it has become balanced, you must move quickly and effectively to ensure your survival. While there is still air in the car, take slow, deep breaths and focus on what you're doing.
Open the window as soon as you hit the water.
Surviving a sinking car is not as difficult as you think.
It takes 60 to 120 seconds for a car to fill up with water usually.
Such accidents are particularly dangerous to the risk of drowning.
In conclusion, if you know what to do in the water, you will be safe.
This is the first thing to attend to, yet it often gets forgotten in the panic.
But the sooner the window is open, the sooner you can escape directly through it.
Yesterday morning, it was already 7:30 that I got up. Thinking I would be late, I got dressing quickly
and left without breakfast. There were such many people at the bus stop that it was hard to catch a
bus. So I rush towards my school. Suddenly, I ran across an old woman and she fell down. Without make
an apology, I left him and went on. Later, I heard the old woman was bad injured in the leg and she was
sent to hospital. I felt it very sorry. And the following day I paid her visit.
