  President Theodore Roosevelt’s letter to his son

  Dear Ted,
  I was glad to hear that you were to be confirmed.

  Secretary Root left on Monday and Governor Taft took his place.I have missed, and shall miss Root badly.He has been the ablest, most generous and most disinterested friend and advisor that any president could hope to have; and immediately after leaving, he provided a great service by a speech at the Union League Club, in which he said in a most effective fashion the very things I should have liked him to say;and his words, moreover, carried weight when he was addressing such an audience.Taft is a splendid fellow and will be an aid and comfort in every way.But, as your mother says, he is too much like me to be able to give me as good advice as Mr.Root because of the very differences of character between us.

If after fully thinking the matter over, you remain firmly convinced that you want to go into the army, well and good.I shall be rather sorry for your decision, because I have great confidence in you and I believe that in civil life you could probably win in the end a greater prize than if you go into the army — though, of course, a man can do well in the army.I know perfectly well that you will have hard times in civil life.Probably most young fellows when they have graduated from college feel pretty depressed for the first few years.In ordinary cases, it at first seems as if their efforts were not leading anywhere, as if the pressure around the foot of the ladder was too great to permit getting up to the top.But I have faith in your ability and your power to force yourself to the front when you have once found out and taken your line. However, you and I and your mother will talk the whole matter over when you come back here on Easter.

25.What mainly contributes to Mr.Root’s being a good advisor according to the President?

A.His great generosity.

B.His effective speech.

C.Their differences in character.

D.Their similarities in character.

26.What did the President wish Ted to do?

A.Lead a civil life.

B.Do well in the army.

C.Force himself to the front.

D.Take postgraduate courses.

27.What did the President say about most young people starting their life after graduation?

A.They would make no efforts.

B.They would have a hard life.

C.They would look for a ladder.

D.They would have no confidence.

  Trailers(预告片)shouldn’t really be a hard thing to do:show some footage(镜头), get people excited, but don’t give too much away.It’s a practice that some movies struggle to do, with many either getting too enthusiastic about showing their big plot points, and others simply not catching the magic of the movie.Considering that humans struggle with this practice so much, the folks over the 20th Century Fox decided to see what a computer could do, tasking IBM’s Watson, the supercomputer, with cutting together footage from the upcoming sci-fi thriller, Morgan, to create the final trailer.(IBM’s Watson has done many things;beat human competitors in quiz shows, created reserved recipes and described the contents of photos.Now it has become the first-ever AI to produce a film trailer for the new sci-fi film.)The result was actually surprisingly good.

  Using Watson’s experimental learning techniques, IBM’s cutting edge AI sorted out hundreds of classic thriller trailers to learn what exactly gets an audience to that special place of being both scared and entertained.With that knowledge firmly in place, Watson processed the entire Morgan movie, selecting the 10 most thrilling and frightening moments to cut together into a trailer.

"Watson was able to model the scenes visually in order to determine:Was a scene scary? Was it a tender moment? Was there sadness, or happiness?"said IBM’s John Smith.

Although a human editor was still needed to slice the scenes together to tell a coherent story, the AI shortened the process down to only 24 hours when it typically takes around 10 to 30 days to complete a trailer.Still, it’s a great impressive achievement, which the likes of Terminator Genisys could perhaps learn from in the future.

28.What does the author think is amazing according to the text?

A.Human editors taking 30 days to make a trailer.

B.The 20th Century Fox having produced a thriller.

C.IBM’s Watson having created a trailer for a thriller.

D.Humans being able to learn from machines in the future.

29.What did IBM researchers do before Watson cut together footage from the movie Morgan?

A.Teach him to beat chess competitors.

B.Feed him over 100 horror trailers.

C.Create reserved recipes.

D.Talk about photos.

30.What does the underlined word "coherent" in the last paragraph probably mean?

A.Exciting.

B.Reliable.

C.Consistent.

D.Exact.

31.What can we guess is the most difficult to Watson?

A.How long the trailer should be.

B.How Watson appreciates the story.

C.How many scenes a trailer needs.

D.How Watson decides the feelings.

  Crying is the sign of the rawest of human emotions.We cry when we can’t hold inside what we feel any more.We cry when we’re at our best, and when we’re at our worst.By we, I mean all of us.Men included.

But we never see other men cry.In no western culture has it ever been acceptable for men to shed(流泪) more than a single tear, and even then it’s reserved for grand victories, defeats and deaths.Dutch research suggests that women cry between three and five times more than men.Generally men and women cry over the same things — deaths, break-ups and homesickness, primarily, but researchers believe that men cry more often than women when it comes to positive events.

I want to admit I’m a bit of a cryer.However, having never really experienced deaths in my life, a few weeks ago I experienced what it means to really, truly, pour my heart out in tears.

See, my dog — and 24/7 companion — was killed by a car right outside my house.Being a witness to this painful event left me in shock for a good hour, but then the floodgates opened.Over the next 48 hours, I might have cried 20 times. Once or twice I crouched(蹲)on the floor with my head in my hands and tears were the only outlet.

  It is suggested in the book Adult Crying:A Biopsychosocial Approach that there’s certain pleasure in crying.It helps ease stress when there is no other way to express ourselves.

In those days after my dog’s death, I remember thinking, "I’ve got to stop this crying".It felt unmanly.It felt like a sign of weakness.I’ve since realised that tears are for everybody;they’re not gender-specific.They show we have sympathy, allow us to get rid of stress and just feel.

32.What does the first paragraph mainly talk about?

A.Crying is a raw human emotion.

B.Crying is an emotion beyond control.

C.Crying is an emotion showing sadness.

D.Crying is an emotion showing happiness.

33.What’s the difference between men and women in crying according to Dutch research?

A.They cry over different matters.

B.They cry at different times of life.

C.Women cry more often over deaths.

D.Men are more likely to have tears of joy.

34.What did the author think of his crying over his dog’s death?

A.A sign of strength.

B.A sign of weakness.

C.Behavior of being womanish.

D.A way of reducing emotional stress.

35.What’s the best title for the text?

A.Men, never cry like women

B.Men, it’s OK to cry sometimes

C.Crying solves psychological problems

D.Crying explains differences between men and women

三、七选五

How to run international meetings

As more of us do business across cultures, it’s best to prepare ahead of time before heading to the meeting table.Here are four rules for different countries.

Stick to the schedule

Where:Germany, Austria, Japan

We’ve all been to meetings that have a loose agenda, if any at all.They don’t start on time and they seem to repeat.  36 Japanese are more likely to create a detailed agenda and pass out supporting documents several days before a meeting.  37 Meetings that run long in Germany are often taken to mean that the parties are not communicating efficiently.

  38  

Where:China, Malaysia, Singapore

Debating a topic can go against the traditional Chinese concept of "saving face", which means avoiding any mistakes or actions that could bring embarrassment.Laughing at even an obviously amusing answer or pointing out a potential mistake can spoil the entire meeting.

Enjoy the interruptions

Where:Italy, France, Spain

When Pascal Soboll meets with clients in Italy or Spain, he’s no longer offended if they leave early or arrive late.Rather than attend the entire three-hour meeting, he has learned that his colleagues there — and in some parts of France — attend based on their own timetable.

  39 Rather than expect people to sit through his entire presentation, he makes it easier for them to turn up as needed

Please, no small talk

Where:Finland, Sweden

In places like Finland and Sweden, where non-meeting related discussions like chat about the weather can be regarded as a way to be off a formally-set agenda and as a waste of other people’s time.

In some countries, including Finland, there are long pauses in the conversation.  40 These breaks are used as a way to process what the other person is saying without interrupting.

A.  Not so in these countries.

B. Germans and Austrians are similar.

C. Don’t even think about a brainstorm.

D. There’s often no way to tell how things are going.

E. Don’t try to fill them, though, with small talk or anything else.

F. What do the long silences, idle chit-chat and serious faces really mean in context?

G. For Soboll, that means changing his own German-based expectations of client behaviour.

四、完形填空

  "God, give us thankful hearts for these and for all our many blessings."That was the   41 my father, an East Texas farmer, said over every meal.

  Pa passed away long ago, but I try to  42 his example every day.The year we spent Thanksgiving at our home on Lake Tawakoni was such a   43 .I was preparing a dinner party for the day.I opened the oven, put in our huge  44 and tried to turn on the old oven.It took just a few minutes for me to   45 that the heating had failed.I only had a few hours  46 family members and special friends were going to arrive with side dishes, so I called my neighbor Lois and explained my problem.

  Lois just  47 and said:"Honey, you bring that turkey to my house.We’ll have it cooked in no time."

  With a sigh of  48 , I put the roasting pan into the car and  49 across the road.Lois babysat the big bird while I returned to the lake house and  50 a festive table.While the turkey was cooked in her oven, I gave special  51 to the kind neighbor.My family and friends arrived.We  52 before our meal, stood in a   53 and prayed.Some people mentioned things for which they were  54 thankful and others stood in   55 silence.The tissue box made its way around the circle as some of us began to   56 — a sign of joy rather than sorrow.

  When the last of the food was  57 off the table, I took a deep breath.A Thanksgiving prayer is easy for me when things are going well, but sometimes it  58 extra courage to give thanks when I am sad or when something unforeseen  59 my plans — even a broken oven.

Then I stopped to   60 Pa and the many times I heard him say, "God, give us thankful hearts for these and for all our many blessings."I want that to be my prayer, too.

第二部分(非选择题)
五、语法填空

Sending gifts varies greatly from country to country.In Australia, Canada, the United States  61 European countries, sending gifts is rarely expected.While seen as a nice gesture, it is more important to avoid  62 (give)highly personal gifts such as clothing. When visiting the home of a colleague from one of these  63 (country), it is normally appropriate to bring a gift to the hostess.

In America,   64 (expense)gifts are definitely out.A good  65 (choose)is to take the deserving person to dinner, or to  66 entertainment or a sporting event.  67 the contrary, gift giving is a traditional custom in Japan.In Japan the proper gift is thought  68 (express)the giver’s true friendship, gratitude and respect far  69 (well) than words can.So if you plan to visit Japan or to have any Japanese visit you here, be prepared.

Australia is known for its friendliness and informality.So modest gifts, such as a diary, a paperweight, or a coffee cup might  70 (present)to a friend.At a trade show, T-shirts, ties, baseball caps, or a pin may be appropriate souvenirs.Anything more than these types of gifts could cause embarrassment.
