Petitions

Petitions(请愿/书)have long been a part of British political life. Anyone who wanted to change something would get a list of signatures from people who agreed to the idea and either send them to the government or deliver them personally to the Prime Minister's house in London.
They are always accepted at the door by one of the PM'S officials. What happens then? Nothing much, usually. But petitions have always been thought of as a useful way for those who govern to find out what the people really think.
That's why the UK government launched its “e-petition” site in November 2006. Instead of physically collecting signatures, all anyone with an idea has to do now is to make a proposal on the government website, and anyone who supports the idea is free to add his or her signature.
The petitions soon started to flow in. The idea was for the British people to express their constructive ideas. Many chose instead to express their sense of humor.
One petitioner called on Tony Blair to “stop the Deputy Prime Minister eating so much”. Another wanted to expel
(驱逐)
Scotland from the United Kingdom because Scottish football fans never support England in the World Cup.
Other petitioners called on the Prime Minister to abolish the monarchy. Some wanted to give it more power. Some wanted to oppose the United States. Others wanted to leave the European Union. Some wanted to send more troops to Iraq and others wanted them all brought home. Some wanted to adopt the euro
(欧元)
. Others wanted to keep the pound.
Yet if some petitions are not serious, others present a direct challenge to government policy. A petition calling on the government to drop plans to charge drivers for using roads has already drawn around l.8 million signatures. In response to that, a rival petition has been posted in support of road pricing. And that is also rapidly growing.
There are about 60 million people in Britain, so it is understandable that the government wants to find out what people are thinking. But the problem with the e-petition site seems to be that the British people have about 70 million opinions, and want the Prime Minister to hear all of them. Perhaps he could start a petition asking everyone to just shut up for a while.

Ways to Reduce Exposure to Air Pollution

1 A report published recently brings bad news about air pollution. It suggests that it could be as damaging to our health as exposure to the radiation from the l986 Ukraine nuclear power plant disaster. The report was published by the UK'S Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution. But what can city people do to reduce exposure to air pollution? Quite a lot, it turns out.
2 Avoid walking in busy streets. Choose side streets and parks instead. Pollution levels can fall a considerable amount just by moving a few meters away from the main pollution source - exhaust fumes
(废气). Also don't walk behind smokers. Walk on the windward(顶风的)side of the street where exposure of pollutants(污染物)can be 50 percent less than on the downwind(顺风的)
side.
3 Sitting on the driver's side of a bus can increase your exposure by l0 percent, compared with sitting on the side nearest the pavement. Sitting upstairs on a double-decker
(双层电车)can reduce exposure. It is difficult to say whether traveling on an underground train is better or worse than taking the bus. Air pollution on underground trains tends to be less toxic(有毒的)than that at street level, because underground pollution is mostly made up of tiny iron particles(粒子)thrown up by wheels hitting the rails, while diesel(柴油机)
and petrol fumes have a mixture of pollutants.
4 When you are crossing a road, stand well back from the curb
(路缘)
while you wait for the light to change. Every meter really does count when you are close to traffic. As the traffic begins to move, fumes can be reduced in just a few seconds. So holding your breath for just a moment can make a difference, even though it might sound silly.
5 There are large sudden pollution increases during rush hours. Pollution levels fall during nighttime. The time of year also makes a big difference. Pollution levels tend to be at their lowest during spring and autumn when winds are freshest. Extreme cold or hot weather has a trapping effect and tends to cause a build-up of pollutants.

4部分:阅读理解(第3145题,每题3分,共45分)

下面有3篇短文,每篇短文后有5道题。请根据短文内容,为每题确定1个最佳选项。

第一篇
Stop Eating Too Much

“Clean your plate!” and “Be a member of the clean-plate club!” Just about every kid in the US has hear this from a parent or grandparent. Often, it's accompanied by an appeal: “Just think about those starving orphans(孤儿)in Africa!” Sure, we should be grateful for every bite of food. Unfortunately, many people in the US take too many bites. Instead of staying “clean the plate” perhaps we should save some food for tomorrow.
According to news reports, US restaurants are partly to blame for the growing bellies
(肚子)
. A waiter puts a plate of food in front of each customer, with two to four times the amount recommended by the government, according to a USA Today story. Americans traditionally associate quantity with value and most restaurants try to give them that. They prefer to have customers complain about too much food rather than too little.
Barbara Rolls, a nutrition
(营养)professor at Pennsylvania State University, told USA Today that restaurant portion sizes began to grow in the l970s.the same time that the American waistline(腰围)
began to expand.
Health experts have tried to get many restaurants to serve smaller portions. Now, apparently, some customers are calling for this too. The restaurant industry trade magazine QSR reported last month that 57 percent of more than 4.000 people surveyed believed restaurants served portions that were too large
23 percent had no opinion
20 percent disagreed. But a closer look at the survey indicates that many Americans who can't afford fine dining still prefer large portions. Seventy percent of those earning at least $150, 000 per year prefer smaller portions; but only 45 percent of those earning less than $25, 000 want smaller.
It's not that working class Americans don't want to eat healthy. It's just that, after long hours at low-paying jobs, getting less on their plate hardly seems like a good deal. They live from paycheck
(薪金支票)
to paycheck, happy to save a little money for next year's Christmas presents.

31
 
Parents in the United States tend to ask their children
A
 
to save food for tomorrow.
B
 
to wash the dishes.
C
 
not to waste food.
D
 
not to eat too much.
32
 
Why do American restaurants serve large portions?
A
 
Because Americans associate quantity with value.
B
 
Because Americans have big bellies.
C
 
Because Americans are good eaters.
D
 
Because Americans are too weak.
33
 
What happened in the l970s?
A
 
The US government called on its people to reduce their weight.
B
 
Health experts persuaded restaurants to serve smaller portions.
C
 
The United States produced more grain than needed.
D
 
The American waistline started to expand.
34
 
What does the survey indicate?
A Many low-income Americans want large portions.
B Twenty percent of Americans want smaller portions.
C Fifty-seven percent of Americans want large portions.
D Forty-five percent of Americans want smaller portions.
35
 
Which of the following is NOT true of working class Americans?
A
 
They work long hours.
B
 
They live from paycheck to paycheck.
C
 
They don't want to be healthy eaters.
D
 They want to save money for presents.

A New Immigration Bill

The US Senate is considering a new immigration bill. It will value the economic promise of immigrants over family ties when considering US residency and citizenship. The legislation, which was proposed by President Bush and a group of senators, contains a point system. The proposal aims to increase the number of immigrants with graduate degrees, earnings or job skills.
The proposed point system would use a l00-point scale. According to a draft of the law, merit applicants could earn up to 47 points for things like occupation, or year of work for a US firm. They could earn up to 28 points for their education, 15 points for English and US civics
(公民学)
, and l0 points for family ties. The system has stirred up debate. Critics on the left say it opposes family unity and American values. Critics on the right complain that it does not reflect the needs of high-tech employers.
The current kinship
(血缘关系)
-based system puts pressure on the US, as it attracts low-skill workers who consume more public services than they pay back in taxes. It allows a variety of uneducated people in from Mexico and Central America.
The immigration bill would allow eight years to clear the current backlog
(积压)of application for a permanent resident card, or green card. After that, only the children and spouses(配偶)of legal immigrants would be able to apply for family visas. Adult children, siblings(兄弟姐妹), parents, and other relatives would have to apply in the general queue (排队). Under the proposal, immigrants from Asian, countries would likely fare well(很有利). For instance, over half of recent immigrants from China and India have a bachelor's(学士的)
or higher degree. Immigrants from Latin American countries would likely face more difficulties.
Immigration point systems have been in use in Canada, Australia and New Zealand for years. The UK adopted a similar approach in 2001. One thing that Canada and other nations have discovered is that their system needs to fit the needs of their economy. Too often they find that they attract highly-educated people who end up finding work that doesn’t use their skills. Some end up driving a taxi.

36
 
One of the reasons for proposing the point system is
A
 
to give priority to immigrants from China.
B
 
to protect the US from terrorist attacks.
C
 
to attract skilled immigrants.
D
 
to increase population.
37
 
What do critics on the right say about the proposed point system?
A
 
It opposes family unity.
B
 
It is very difficult to apply.
C
 
It opposes American values.
D
 
It does not meet the needs of high—tech employers.
38
 
Which statement is NOT true of the current system?
A
 
It is kinship-based.
B
 
It puts pressure on the US.
C
 It draws 
low-skilled workers.
D
 
It attracts highly-educated people.
39
 
Who can apply for family visas in future?
A
 
The uncles and aunts of legal immigrants.
B
 
The brothers and sisters of legal immigrants.
C
 
The spouses and young children of legal immigrants.
D
 
The parents and grandparents of legal immigrants.
40

The US.
C

Political Spins

Last week, US White House spokesman Tony Snow sent journalists digging for their dictionaries. He called recent criticism by the former President Bill Clinton “chutzpah”(大胆放肆). With just one sentence, Snow managed to make headlines, a joke and a defense of President George W. Bush. Interestingly, this is how battles are fought and won in US politics - with carefully-worded one-liners(一行字幕新闻)made for TV which often lack substance and clarity(清晰度).
“The amount of information that candidates attempt to communicate to people is actually getting smaller and smaller,” said Mark Smith, a political science professor at Cedarville University. This has been accompanied by a changing media environment, Smith said. In l968, the average TV or radio soundbite
(演讲中的句子或短语)was 48 seconds, according to Smith. In l996, the average soundbite had shrunk(缩短)
to 8 seconds. Thus, politicians wanting publicity try to make their public communication as quotable as possible.
Campaigning politicians also use 30-second TV ads and clever campaign slogans
(口号)
to boost their messages. Republican presidential candidate John McCain rides to campaign stops in a bus named the “Straight-Talk Express”. McCain hopes the name will convince voters he plans to tell people the truth - whether it's in fashion or not. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, has chosen the campaign slogan “Let the conversation begin”. She hopes it will help her appear open-minded and friendly.
But one-liners, TV ads and campaign slogans all have a single key ingredient: something commonly called political-“spin”. Brooks Jackson, a former journalist and the current director of the non-partisan
(无党派的)website FactCheck.org, calls spin “just a polite word for deception(欺骗)
. ”
“I do believe that very often politicians believe their own spin. ”said Jackson.
“Strong partisans suffer from a universal human tendency
They ignore the evidence that would force them into the uncomfortable position of having to change their minds and admit that they were wrong.”

41
 
Which statement is NOT true of one-1iners?
A
 
They are unclear.
B
 
They contain a lot of information.
C
 
They lack substance.
D
 
They are carefully constructed.
42
 What changed from l968 to 1996

A
 
Publicity.
B
 
Information.
C
 
Communication.
D
 
The average soundbite.
43
 
The campaign slogan “Straight-Talk Express” aims at convincing voters that the presidential candidate is
A
 
honest.
B
 
friendly.
C
 
open-minded.
D
 
warm-hearted.
44
 
According to Brooks Jackson, all campaign slogans are
A
 
attractive.
B
 
impressive.
C
 
deceptive.
D
 
informative.
45
 
Which statement best describes strong partisans?
A
 
They are very funny.
B
 
They are very healthy.
C
 
They are very aggressive.
D
 They are very stubborn(顽固的)

Bomb Explosions in Thailand

The new year celebration in Thailand was shattered by violence, when nine bombs exploded across Bangkok around midnight. Three Thai citizens were killed and more than 30 injured.
Among the injured, six were foreigners. No Chinese casualties were reposed, the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok, the capital, said on Monday.
    46But other embassies have advised their citizens to avoid traveling to Bangkok. “There is a possibility of further attacks in coming days, ” said a travel advisory(公告)
from Australia. “Australians are urged to avoid unnecessary travel in Bangkok.”
No terrorist group claimed responsibility for the bombings by Tuesday .
    47Bombings and shootings occur almost daily in Thailand's three southernmost provinces. Yala, Naarathiwat and Pattani have a dominant Muslim population and have long complained of neglect(忽视)and discrimination(歧视)in the largely Buddhist(佛教徒的)nation. They have asked for independence and a separate Islamic(伊斯兰的)state. Since 2004, the insurgents(叛乱者)have carried out numerous attacks in the south and more than l,900 people have been killed.     48

But Thai Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont said on Monday that domestic politics rather than the Muslim insurgency was behind the bombings. “It is likely related to people who lost their political benefits,” Surayud said, referring to Thaksin Shinawatra.
    49Surayud was later appointed interim(临时的)
prime minister. Thaksin, however,still enjoys widespread support, especially in the countryside.
    50
Thaksin's lawyer, Noppadol Patama, denied his client’s involvement in the bombings, according to a local website.

A
 
Some believe the explosions were the work of Muslim separatists.
B
 Some believe that several senior army officers loyal to Thaksin plotted the bombings with ousted(赶下台)politicians to discredit(败坏名声)
the government.
C
 Thaksin was ousted in a military coup(政变)
last September.
D
 
The Thai Government has been unable to control the violence, though thousands of troops have been sent to the south.
E
 
The embassy issued no travel warnings.
F
 
Nobody is to blame.

UFOS

Sixty years ago, a man named Kenneth Arnold saw something that we can still    (51)today-something that changed popular culture for ever.
Flying his plane over mountains in the US state of Washington, he saw a line of strange objects, either crescent-shaped(月牙形的)or disc-like, flying     (52) the motion of a saucer(碟)skimming(飞速掠过)
on water.
The media soon picked up on the story - the Flying Saucers were here! Was the earth being     (53)by creatures from another planet?

The date of the first UFO sightings was also significant. In l947, World War II had just ended and the     (61)War was just beginning. Humanity seemed locked in endless conflicts. Like generations before them, people looked     (62)the skies for help. But instead of seeking God, they looked for help from super-intelligent aliens(外星人)with     (63)
technology. Belief in UFOs became the first religion of science.
However, even people who believe in UFOs are not quite sure why they visit the earth. The universe is a big place and it is     (64)to assume that there is life somewhere out there. It is possible that aliens have worked out how to travel through space. Yet some people report that they have been taken by aliens and have had experiments     (65)
on them. Why would anyone travel across half the universe to conduct medical experiments on people living in small towns in the United States?

Bomb Explosions in Thailand

The new year celebration in Thailand was shattered by violence, when nine bombs exploded across Bangkok around midnight. Three Thai citizens were killed and more than 30 injured.
Among the injured, six were foreigners. No Chinese casualties were reposed, the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok, the capital, said on Monday.
    
(46)But other embassies have advised their citizens to avoid traveling to Bangkok. “There is a possibility of further attacks in coming days, ” said a travel advisory(公告)from Australia. “Australians are urged to avoid unnecessary travel in Bangkok.”
No terrorist group claimed responsibility for the bombings by Tuesday .     (47)Bombings and shootings occur almost daily in Thailand's three southernmost provinces. Yala, Naarathiwat and Pattani have a dominant Muslim population and have long complained of neglect(忽视)and discrimination(歧视)in the largely Buddhist(佛教徒的)nation. They have asked for independence and a separate Islamic(伊斯兰的)state. Since 2004, the insurgents(叛乱者)have carried out numerous attacks in the south and more than l,900 people have been killed.     (48)

But Thai Prime Minister Surayud Chulanont said on Monday that domestic politics rather than the Muslim insurgency was behind the bombings. “It is likely related to people who lost their political benefits,” Surayud said, referring to Thaksin Shinawatra.
    (49)Surayud was later appointed interim(临时的)
prime minister. Thaksin, however,still enjoys widespread support, especially in the countryside.
    (50)
Thaksin's lawyer, Noppadol Patama, denied his client’s involvement in the bombings, according to a local website.

A Some believe the explosions were the work of Muslim separatists.
B Some believe that several senior army officers loyal to Thaksin plotted the bombings with ousted
(赶下台)politicians to discredit(败坏名声)the government.
C Thaksin was ousted in a military coup(政变)last September.
D The Thai Government has been unable to control the violence, though thousands of troops have been sent to the south.
E 
The embassy issued no travel warnings.
F 
Nobody is to blame.

UFOS

Sixty years ago, a man named Kenneth Arnold saw something that we can still    (51)today-something that changed popular culture for ever.
Flying his plane over mountains in the US state of Washington, he saw a line of strange objects, either crescent-shaped(月牙形的)or disc-like, flying     (52) the motion of a saucer(碟)skimming(飞速掠过)
on water.
The media soon picked up on the story - the Flying Saucers were here! Was the earth being     (53)by creatures from another planet? Soon, So many sightings were made that the US military began to     (54). 1t called these strange Objects UFOs - Unidentified Flying Objects, and that is how they are     (55)
today.
Military investigations found no evidence of visitors from outer space. But that did not stop the true

    (56). The military were     (57)up, they said. Or maybe it was because the travelers from space were of such superior intelligence     (58)they could hide from military analysts(分析家).
People have always seen strange lights in the sky. In the past these were explained in     (59)ways. In a world where religion was less influential and science fiction was popular, signs from God were replaced by visitors from other     (60)
.
The date of the first UFO sightings was also significant. In l947, World War II had just ended and the     (61)War was just beginning. Humanity seemed locked in endless conflicts. Like generations before them, people looked     (62)the skies for help. But instead of seeking God, they looked for help from super-intelligent aliens(外星人)with     (63)
technology. Belief in UFOs became the first religion of science.
However, even people who believe in UFOs are not quite sure why they visit the earth. The universe is a big place and it is     (64)to assume that there is life somewhere out there. It is possible that aliens have worked out how to travel through space. Yet some people report that they have been taken by aliens and have had experiments     (65)
on them. Why would anyone travel across half the universe to conduct medical experiments on people living in small towns in the United States?
