  Tyler was born infected with HIV and his mother was also infected.From the very beginning of his life, he was dependent on medications(药物) to enable him to survive. When he was five, he had a tube surgically(外科手术上) inserted in a vein(静脉)in his chest. This tube was connected to a pump, which he carried in a small backpack on his back. Medications were connected to this pump and were continuously supplied through this tube to his bloodstream. At times,he also needed supplemented oxygen to support his breathing.

  Tyler wasn’t willing to give up one single moment of his childhood to this deadly disease. It was not unusual to find him playing and racing around his backyard, wearing his backpack and dragging his tank of oxygen behind him in his little wagon(小推车). All of us who knew Tyler were amazed at his pure joy in being alive and the energy it gave him. Tyler’s mom often made jokes on him by telling him that he moved so fast she needed to dress him in red. That way, when she peered through the window to check on him playing in the yard,she could quickly spot him.

  This terrible disease eventually wore him down. He grew quite ill and,unfortunately, so did his HIV-infected mother. When it became clear that he wasn’t going to survive, Tyler’s mom talked to him about death. She comforted Tyler by telling him that she was dying too,and that she would be with him soon in heaven.

A few days before his death, Tyler beckoned(召唤) me over to his hospital bed and whispered, "I might die soon. I’m not scared. When I die, please dress me in red. Mom promised she’s coming to heaven,too. I’ll be playing when she gets there,and I want to make sure she can find me."

B.Because he had no right to choose but to wear it.

C.Because he wanted to be different from other kids.

  We can achieve knowledge either actively or passively.We achieve it actively by direct experience, by testing and proving an idea, or by reasoning.

  We achieve knowledge passively by being told by someone else. Most of the learning that takes place in the classroom and the kind that happens when we watch TV or read newspapers or magazines is passive. Conditioned as we are to passive learning, it’s not surprising that we depend on it in our everyday communication with friends and co-workers.

  Unfortunately,passive learning has a serious problem.It makes us tend to accept what we are told even when it is little more than hearsay(传闻)and rumor.

  Did you ever play the game Rumor? It begins when one person writes down a message but doesn’t show it to anyone.Then the person whispers it, word for word,to another person. That person, in turn, whispers it to still another, and so on,through all the people playing the game. The last person writes down the message word for word as he or she hears it. Then the two written statements are compared. Typically, the original message has changed.

  That’s what happens in daily life. The simple fact that people repeat a story in their own words changes the story. Then,too,most people listen imperfectly. And many enjoy adding their own creative touch to a story,trying to improve on it, stamping it with their own personal style. Yet those who hear it think they know.

This process is also found among scholars and authors: A statement of opinions by one writer may be restated as the fact by another, who may in turn be quoted by yet another; and this process may continue,unless it occurs to someone to question the facts on which the original writer based his opinion or to challenge the interpretation he placed upon those facts.

5.According to the passage, active learning may occur in    .

A.reading scientific journals

B.listening to the teacher in class

B.people tend to like telling lies when playing games

C.a message may be changed when being passed on

D.people may have problems with their sense of hearing

8.What can be inferred from the text?

A.Scholars and authors can’t be trusted.

B.Passive learning may not be reliable.

C.People like spreading rumor in daily life.

D.Active learning is more important than passive learning.

  Four great railway journeys

  Travelling by rail holds a romantic and old-fashioned appeal that can’t be matched by flying or driving. By taking the slow route, you get to experience and interact with an area in a completely different way.

The Rocky Mountaineer

Where: Canada, from Vancouver to Banff, Jasper and Calgary.

When: In June,which is springtime in the Rockies,complete with blooming flowers and abundant wildlife.

Duration: Between two and eight days, travelling only in daylight, staying in luxury hotels.

Highlights: Splendid views of Rocky Mountains, incredible luxury at every stage of the trip, traditional native storytelling, wine classes and natural history workshops.

The Chepe

Where: Mexico. It begins its journey in the mountains of Chihuahua and finishes on the Sinaloa coast.

When: In the rainy season,from June to October,you’ll get lush vegetation(丰富的植被) and blooming cacti(仙人掌), although midsummer (July) temperatures can reach 44 ℃.

Duration: Going the route straight through takes 14 hours,but you’ll want to stop off overnight and explore traditional towns along the way.

Highlights: The train winds its way down through 656 km of the spectacular Copper Canyon (which is deeper than the Grand Canyon), over 37 precarious-looking bridges and through 86 tunnels. Local people sell crafts and foods along the route.

The Ghan

Where: Australia, from Adelaide to Darwin via Alice Springs.

When: Going during the wet season (December, January) will allow you to see more wildlife and tropical splendour in the north, though the peak season is usually the winter.

Duration: Going straight through takes 52 hours. There are disembarkation points(登陆点)from which you can take tours.

Highlights: Going through Australia’s Red Centre with cobalt blue skies,red earth and not much else — a beautiful and serene(宁静的)experience.

The Royal Scotsman

Where: Travels around the Scottish Highlands or all the way around Great Britain.

When: Warmer weather and up to 20 hours of daylight in June make it the perfect time to watch ospreys soaring (鱼鹰飞翔)over mirror-like lochs(湖), or go in October for autumn colours and the rather vocal stag-rutting season.

Duration: Trips can be as short as two days or as long as seven.

Highlights: Possibly the most expensive train journey in the world. You’ll be treated like a member of the monarchy(皇室). Indulgent(放纵的)cuisine, fine wines and carriages that look like rooms at Balmoral Castle await those willing to part with a minimum of £2,350 per person for a two-night trip.

  Most episodes of absent-mindedness — forgetting where you left something or wondering why you just entered a room — are caused by a simple lack of attention, says Schacter. "You’re supposed to remember something,but you haven’t encoded it deeply."

Encoding, Schacter explains, is a special way of paying attention to an event that has a major impact on recalling it later. Failure to encode properly can create an annoying situation. If you put your mobile phone in a pocket, for example, and don’t pay attention to what you did because you’re involved in a conversation, you’ll probably forget that the phone is in the jacket now hanging in your wardrobe(衣柜). "Your memory itself isn’t failing you, " says Schacter. "Rather, you didn’t give your memory system the information it needed."

Lack of interest can also lead to absent-mindedness. "A man who recites sports statistics from 30 years ago, "says Zelinski, "may not remember to drop a letter in the mailbox. "Women have slightly better memory than men, possibly because they are more interested in what’s happening around them, and memory relies on just that.

Visual cues(提示)can help prevent absent-mindedness,says Schacter. "But be sure the cue is clear and available, "he cautions. If you want to remember to take a medication with lunch, put the pill bottle on the kitchen table — don’t leave it in the medicine chest and write yourself a note that you keep in a pocket.

Another common episode of absent-mindedness: walking into a room and wondering why you’re there. Most likely, you were thinking about something else. "Everyone does this from time to time, " says Zelinski. The best thing to do is to return to where you were before entering the room, and you’ll likely remember.

A.they have a wider range of interests

B.they always put things where they were

B.Taking some medicine.

C.Putting something in sight.

D.Returning to where you were.

15.What is the best title for the text?

A.A Way of Recalling

B.The Importance of Encoding

C.Cures for Absent-mindedness

D.Causes and Coping Strategies of Absent-mindedness
