No one is born a win n er. People make themselves into winners by their own 16 .
I learned this lesson from a(n) 17 many years ago. I took the head 18 job at a school in Baxley, Georgia. It was a smal l school with a weak football program.
It was a tradition for the school’s old team to play against the 19 team at the end of spring practice. The old team had no coach, and they didn’t even practice to 20 the game. Being the coach of the new team, I was excited because I knew we were going to win, but to my disappointment we were defeated. I couldn’t 21 I had got into such a situation. Thinking hard about it, I came to 22 that my team might not be the number one team in Georgia, but they were 23 me. I had to change m y 24 about their ability and potential.
I started doing anything I could to help them build a little 25 . Most important, I began to treat them like 26 . That summer, Wh en the other teams enjoyed their 27 , we met every day and 28 passing and kicking the football.
Six months after suffering our 29 o n th e sp r ing practice field, we won our first game and our second, and continued to 30 . Fi nal l y, we faced the number one team in the state. I felt that it would be a 31 for us even if we lost the game. But that wasn’t what happened. My boys beat th e best team in Georgia, giving me one of the greatest 3 2 of my life!
From the experience I lea rn t a lot about how the attitude of the leader can 33 the members of a team. Inste a d of seeing my boys as losers, I pushed and 34 them. I helped them to see themse l ves 35 , and they built themselves into winners.

When I was 17, I read a magazine article about a museum called the M c Nay, once the home of a watercolorist named Marian M c Nay. She had requested the community to tu rn it into a museum upon her death. On a sunny Saturday, Sally and I drove over to the museum. She asked , "Do you have the address? ""No, but I’ll recognize it, there was a picture in the magazine. "
"Oh, stop. There it is!”
The museum was free. We entered, excited. A group of people sitting in the hall stopped talking and stared at us.
"May I help you?" a man asked. "No, "I said. "We’re fine.” Tour guides got on my nerves. What if they talked a long time about a painting you weren’t that interested in? Sally had gone upstairs. The people in the hall seemed very nosy(爱窥探的), keeping their eyes on me with curiosity. What was th e ir problem? I sa w some nice sculptures in one room. Sud d enly I s e nsed a man standing behind me. " W here do you think you are? " he asked . I tu rn ed sharply. "The McNay Art Mus e um ! " He smiled, shaking his head. "Sor ry, the M c Nay is on New Braunfel s Str ee t." "What’s this place?” I asked, still confus e d. " W ell , it ’ s our home." My heart jolted(震颤). I raced to the staircase and called out, " Sally! Come down immediately! "
" There ’ s some really good stuff(艺术作品) up there. " She stepped down, looking confused. I pushed her toward the fro nt door, waving at the family, saying, "Sorry, please forgive us, you have a really nice place." Outside, when I told Sally what happened, she covered her mouth, lau ghing. S he couldn’t believe how long they let us look around without saying anything.
The real M c Nay was splendid, but we felt nervous the whole time we were there. Van Gogh, Picasso. This time, we stayed together, in case anything else unusual happened.
Thirty years later, a woman approached me in a public place. "Excuse me, did you ever enter a residence, long ago, thinking it was the M c Nay Museum? "
"Yes. But how do you know? We never told anyone. "
"That was my home. I was a teenager sitting in the hall. Before you came over, I never realized what a beautiful place I lived in. I never felt lucky before. You thought it was a mus e um. My feelings about my home changed after that. I’ve always wanted to thank you."

There’s a new frontier in 3D printing that’s beginning to come into focus: food. Recent development has made possible machines that print, cook, and serve foods on a mass scale. And the industry isn’t stopping there.
With a 3D printer, a cook can print complicated chocolate sculptures and beautiful pieces for decoration on a wedding cake. Not everybody can do that — it takes years of experience, but a printer makes it easy. A restaurant in Spain uses a Foodini to “re-create forms and pieces” of food that are “exactly the same,” freeing cooks to complete other tasks. In another restaurant, all of the dishes and desserts it serves are 3D-printed, rather than fa r m to table.
The global population is expected to grow to 9.6 billion by 2050, and some analysts estimate that food production will need to be raised by 50 percent to maintain current levels. Sustainability is becoming a necessity. 3D food printing could probably contribute to the solution. Some experts believe printers could use hydrocolloids (水解胶体) from plentiful renewables like algae(藻类) and grass to replace the familiar ingredients(烹饪原料). 3D printing can reduce fuel use and emissions. Grocery stores of the future might stock "food" that lasts years on end, freeing up shelf space and reducing transportation and storage requirements.
Future 3D food printers could make processed food healthi er . Hod Lipson , a professor at Columbia University, said, “Fo o d printing could allow co nsumers to print food with customi z ed nutritional content, like vi t amins. So instead of eating a piece of yesterday’s b rea d f r om the supermark e t , you’d eat som e thing bak e d j ust for y ou on demand . ”
Despite recent advancements in 3D food printing, the industry has many challenges to overcome. Currently, most ingredients must be changed to a paste(糊状物) before a printer can use them, and the printing proce ss is quite time-consuming, because ingredients interact with each other in very comp lex ways. On top of that, most of the 3D food printers now are restricted to dry ingredi e n t s, because meat and milk products may easily go bad. Some experts are skeptical about 3 D food printers, believing they are better suited for fast food restaurants than home s and high-end restaurants.
46. What benefit does 3D printing bring to food production?
A. It helps cooks to create new dishes.
B. It saves time and effort in cooking.
C. It improves the cooking conditions.
D. It contributes to restaurant decorations.
47. What can we lea rn about 3 D food printing from Paragraphs 3?
A. It solves food shortages easil y .
B. It quickens the transportation o f food.
C. It ne e ds no space for the storage of food.
D. It uses renewable mat e rials as sources of food.
48. According to Paragraph 4, 3D-printed food _____________ .
A. is more available to consumers
B. can meet individual nutritional needs
C. is more tasty than food in supermarkets
D. can keep all the nutrition in raw materials
49. What is the main factor that prevents 3D food printing from spreading widely?
A. The printing process is complicated.
B. 3D food printers are too expensive.
C. Food materials have to be dry.
D. Some experts doubt 3D food printing.
5 0 . What could be the best title of the passage?
A. 3D Food Printing: Delicious New Technology
B. A New Way to Improve 3D Food Printing
C. The Challenges for 3D Food Production
D. 3D Food Printing: From Farm to Table
Give yourself a test. Which way is the wind blowing? How many kinds of wildflowers can be seen from your front door? If your awareness is as sharp as it could be, you’ll have no trouble answering these questions.
Most of us observed much m ore a s children than we do as adults. A child’s day is filled with fascination, newness and wonder. Curiosity gave us all a natural awareness. But distinctions that were sh arp to us as children become unclear; we are numb(麻木的 ) to new stimulation(刺激 ), new ideas. Relea rn ing the art of se e ing the world around us is quite simple, althou g h it t a kes practice and requires breaking some bad habits.
The first step in awakening senses is to stop predicting what we are going to see and feel before it occurs. This blocks awareness. One chilly night when I was hiking in the Rocky Mountains with some students, I mentioned that we were going to cross a mountain stream. The students began complaining about how cold it would be. We reached the stream, and they unwillingly walked ahead. They were almost knee-deep when they realized it was a hot spring. Later they all admitted they’d felt cold water at first.
Another block to awareness is the obsession(痴迷) many of us have with naming t hings. I saw bird watchers who spot t ed a bird, immediately looked it up in field guides , and said , a "ruby-crowned kinglet" and checked it o f f. They no long e r paid at t ention to the bird and never learned what it was doing.
The pressures of "time" and "destination" are further blocks to awareness. I encountered many hikers who were headed to a distant camp-ground with just enough time to get there before dark. It seldom occurred to them to wander a bit, to take a moment to see what’s around them. I asked them what they’d seen. "Oh, a few birds," they said. They seemed bent on their destinations.
Nature seems to unfold to people who watch and wait. Next time you take a walk, no matter where it is, take in all the sights, sounds and sensations. Wander in this frame of mind and you will open a new dimension to your life.
51. According to Paragraph 2, compared with adults, children are more _____________.
A. anxious to do wonders
B. sensitive to others’ feelings
C. likely to develop unpleasant habits
D. eager to explore the world around them
52. What id e a does the author convey in Paragraph 3?
A. To avoid jumping to conclusions.
B. To stop complaining all the time.
C. To follow the teacher’s advice.
D. To admit mistakes honestly.
53. The bird watchers’ behavior s how s that they ____________ .
A. are very patient in their obser v ation
B. are really fascinated by nature
C. care only about th e n ames of birds
D. question the accuracy of the field guides
54. Why do the hikers take no notice of the surroundings during the journey?
A. The natural beauty isn’t attractive to them.
B. They focus on arriving at the camp in time.
C. The forest in the dark is dangerous for them.
D. They are keen to see rare birds at the destination.
55. In the passage, the author intends to tell us we should __________ .
A. fill our senses to feel the wonders of the world
B. get rid of some bad habits in our daily life
C. open our mind to new things and ideas
D. try our best to protect nature

第 II 卷
Some people live to climb the highest mountains . Some people live only dreaming about it while others live to avoid ever climbing at all. But one thing is certain, all people encounter mountains in their life.
When I was a little girl, my family mo v ed to a tiny town at the bottom of a big mountain. One day after school, while ex plori n g the green woods of this magnificent mountain, I almost fell on a s e t of stairs. What could these steps lead to? Curiosity got the best of me as I knew it would be star t ing to get dark soon. I started climbing up those strangely mysterious steps.
I c limbed and climbed . There was nothing but just green bushes and these steps. I had to reach the top! But it was now getting real dark. If I kept going I might not be able to see my way back. My m u m would be worried sick if I didn’t come home soon. So I ran back home almost in the dark while trying not to get too scared.
Anxiously I went to bed dreaming about what I would find at the top of this magical mountain. Could there be a castle up there? Maybe I would find a monster(怪物). Maybe I was taking the risk of never coming back home. Or, maybe all I would find was absolutely nothing ! But something inside me was going to climb that mountain at all cost. I could hardly wait to try this adventure again.
Now we live in a world surrounded by the "can’t do" attitudes. We all fall down. We all have doubts and regrets. Still we must climb and dream about what’s at the top of our mountain. Monsters may appear or the night will fall. But never ever give up on your dream! Never let anyone tell you, "You can’t . " Dream big and climb high!
56. What made the author start to climb up the stairs to the mountain top? (no more than 5 words)
57. Why did the author hurry back home without reaching the top of the mountain? Give two reasons. (no more than 15 words)
58. How would you describe the author in terms of personalities according to Paragraph 4? (no more than 10 words)
59. How do you u n derstand the underlined sent e nce in the last paragraph? (no more than 5 words)
60. What’s your attitude towards the "mountain" in your life? Please explain. (no more than 20 words)
