Homer. He was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1836 and grew up in Cambridge. His father

【高三英语】阅读理解While there are some unpleasant people in the world，let's not forget that most people are
friendly!If you find someone who likes the same restaurants as you or who is also crazy about
"Harry Potter"，then feel free to talk the night away!Just keep the conversation light and
about your common interests. If a topic is brought up that doesn't sit well with you，keep in
mind that you are always in control. Ignore your manners at this time！
Do stay open minded.Sometimes chatting with strangers can turn into a close bond—or
just another person you can turn to for a laugh. But when typing away in your computer, it's
easy to get carried away and to want to tell your new friend all about yourself. Keep the
personal details as secret, and instead talk about fun hobbies or the latest episode(一集)of
"The Uood Wife". If Stranger Sally is asking what you look like，time to put up the red flag.
It is never necessary for someone to know what you look like.
Always listen to your gut(直觉).If something inside you is telling you something isn't
right，it probably isn't. Pay attention to how your body responds to certain people online.
Remember, you never really know who you are talking to just by looking at a computer screen
name，so downloading anything is an absolute no.

【高三英语】阅读理解As the population grows and temperatures rise，it will become more difficult to grow
enough food for everyone. So，scientists are exploring the planet for plants that do not need as
much water as today's crops. The Mojave Desert in the US state of California is home to some
of these plants.
Scientist Heather Rose Kates of the University of Florida is in that desert. She is searching
along roads for a plant called coyote melon which is a kind of squash(南瓜小果).Coyote mel-
on may not taste good，but it can be grown in places that have little rainfall. The desert where
it grows gets just 15 to 20 centimeters of rain per year，or less. Other kinds of squash need at
least two and a half centimeters per week to grow.
Scientists are considering combining wild coyote melon with regular squash to see if they
can make a tasty vegetable that doesn't need as much water to grow. That could be useful on
a planet growing warmer and more crowded every day.
Andy Jarvis works at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture. He says farmers
will need to produce 50 to 70 percent more food by 2050 to feed the world. So，he says，
researchers are studying the wild versions of farm-grown crops.
But he says there is a problem. He says many wild versions of farmed plants are disappearing.
He says they are threatened and scientists have not collected their seeds for future use. Scientist
Kates is part of an international effort to gather these plants and save their seeds while it is
still possible. Workers are collecting wild potatoes in Argentina and wild peppers in Para-
guav. The plants and seeds will be sent for storage to the Global Seed Vault in Norwav and at
Kew Gardens in Britain. Ms Kates spends most of her time in a laboratory. She says gathering
plants has helped her understand more about them.
32. Why do scientists study coyote melon？
A. It tastes good.
B. It is easy to cook.
C. It only needs little water to grow.
D. It is welcomed by many American people.
33. Scientists want to combine wild coyote melon with regular squash in order to
A. feed the people all around the world
B. keep the earth from becoming warmer
C. create a new fruit instead
D.produce a delicious vegetable with less water to grow
34. We can know Andy Jarvis
A. is searching for the coyote melon
B. is in charge of the research of agriculture
C. feels somewhat pessimistic about the scientists' research
D.thinks producing more food to feed the world is easy
35. Which of the following can be inferred from the text？
A. All the plants' seeds need to be stored.
B. Ms Kates never goes outside to do research.
C. Coyote melon can be planted everywhere.
D. Ms Kates benefits a lot from gathering plants
【高三英语】阅读理解After Steve Jobs died，his friend Larry Ellison said something like this，"There will never
be another Steve Jobs". 36
Larrv wrote this list of Steve's life lessons to remind us all.
1. Love what you do. Sure Steve became a billionaire when he brought Apple back. Apple
was his calling even after he got fired from the company. We all have bad jobs at one point in
our lives. But the question is:am I in the right jobs Have I found the right company Life
doesn't go on forever. 37
2. Don't do it all by yourself. Steve learned a great leader can't do it all by himself. He
needs people. They must be talented. 38
They must be given the opportunity to succeed
and fail. In short，we have to learn to be a great leader if we want to see our great ideas and
hard work truly have an influence on the world.
Apple was always the best at creating a new product that meets the exact needs of users.
It's empathy(共鸣)that helps Apple achieve this. Whenever the user has the first touch with
a new Apple product，he says "Wow，it's just what I need". Remember, you're King in the
business world if you know exactly what consumers desire.
4. Don't mess around with your health. 40
That's the most important lesson from
Steve's life. It's great to learn from him but，the fact is he should still be here if he had
