成所给句子的最佳答案。ATo Kill a Mockingbird
will not be author Harper Lees only published novel after all. After more than 50 years, Lees second book, Go Set a Watchman
, will be published on July 14. Watchman is a sequel of sorts to Mockingbird
, although it was written first. To Kill a Mockingbird
, widely considered to be one of the greatest American novels, focused on the experiences of Scout Finch, a young white girl growing up in the small town of Maycomb, Alabama, during the 1930s. In the story, her father Atticus, a lawyer, defends an African. American man charged with a serious case, which leads some people in the town to turn against Scout and her brother Jem.Go Set a Watchman
tells the story of Scout as an adult, returning to her southern hometown in the 1950s to visit her father, at a time when the civil-rights movement is taking hold. According to Burnham, the new novel shows how Scout deals with both personal and political issues as she tries to understand her fathers attitude towards society. "It is a moving story about a father and a daughter s relationship, and the life of a small Alabama town living through the racial tensions of the 1950s, "he said. During that period, racism is an everyday reality for many people living in the Souther United States.
When Lee wrote Go Set a Watchman in the mid-1950s, she showed it to her editor who was interested in Scouts memories of her childhood, and suggested Lee write an entire novel just on that. She set Watchman
aside and forgot about it until last fall. "I hadn't realized it had existed till now, so I was surprised and delighted when my dear friend and lawyer Tonja Carter discovered it, "Lee said.
Now, more than 50 years later, Go Set a Watchman
will give readers a chance to catch up with some of their favorite characters. Describing how she felt about the discovery-and the publication-of the long-forgotten text, Lee said, am amazed that this will now be published after all these years.

So now we know how much sleep we need. The National Sleep Foundation in the US has had 18 experts examine 320 research articles to update its "sleep time duration recommendations (建议）”. The articles were taken from a total number of 2,412 on the basis of the strength of the studies.
In making their recommendations, the experts took into account the health benefits, but also the risks, Too little sleep over several nights leaves you low and tired, unable to concentrate, anxious and, eventually, if it continues, at an increased risk of diabetes(糖尿病). high blood pressure and obesity(肥胖) .Too much sleep result in much the same problems.
So how much is the right amout of sleep? The new guidelines not only give recommended amounts, but also slate what might be right for different ages. Children aged six to nine need nine to 11 hours a night, but may get by on seven to eight. Teenagers need eight to 10 hours. Seven hours may be OK for some, but sleeping more than 11 hours a day may be detrimental
to their health, although some may need that much during puberty(青春期).
Dr Lydia Doncarlos from Loyola University, Chicago, one of the experts on the study,
says that the body's daily rhythm of teenagers naturally changes to make them feel sleepy
later at night and to wake up later. This is a normal phenomenon and has nothing to do with being addicted to social media. She warns that teenagers should still try to get enough sleep on a daily basis, rather than building up a sleep debt to pay off at weekends. “You can never quite make it up, " she says.
Adults aged 18 to 64 need to sleep for seven to nine hours a night, but some six. For people over the age of 65, the recommended amount is between seven and eight hours, although some can do with five hours' sleep (often waking up earlier and napping during the day). Some people may survive on less than recommended amounts because they get higher-quality sleep.
The experts did not look at quality of sleep. Doncarlos says that more research into sleep is needed. "We spend one third of our life asleep, but we know so little about it. " At least knowing how much to aim for is a good start.
60. How did the experts come up with the"sleep time duration recommendations"?
A. By rewriting 320 research articles. B. By looking at high-quality studies
C. By building up a strong research base. D. By examining 18 experts' experiments
6l. How many hours of sleep do teenagers need a night?
A.Seven to twelve hours. B.Seven to nine hours.
C. Five to eight hours. D. Nine to eleven hours.
62. Which word best explains the underlined word"detrimental
"in paragraph 3?
A. Damaging. B. Beneficial. C. Helpful. D. Unnecessary.
63. What does Dr Lydia Don Carlos suggest about teenagers' sleep?
A. They should sleep as much as they can. B They may feel sleepy late at night
C. They may pay back by sleeping more. D. They should have enough sleep every day
64. Which of the following may explain why some people need less sleep?
A. Family background. B. Quality of sleep.
C Regular bedtime. D. Napping at day time.C
College life is in first gear for Eric Deng, a freshman at the USC (University of South
Califonia) Viterbi School of Engineering. Deng, 18, who has shown leadership skills and a
pession (热忱)to try new things, was chosen as a Stamps Leadership Scholar after his acceptance at USC.
Strongly influenced by his father, a mechanical engineer, and his mother, a computer
engineer, Deng developed an interest in science at a young age. In the sixth grade, he joined the robotics(机器人学) team on campus and attended a robotics camp at Stanford University In high school. he created a club to build remote(远程的))controlled model cars. One of his top achievements was the construction of a 3-D printer that he created by using an open source design and then bettering it to reduce the production cost.
Deng's passion for science and hands-on experiences has continued at USC. Before the fall semester ever began, he was ready to become an active member of the USC Racing team. Each year the team creates a car that participates in a yearly competition in Nebraska by the Society of Automotive Engineers. This semester, Deng is trying to improve the power of a high-tech car.
" It's actually uncommon to see a freshman involved this early in the process, " said Michael Baltz, a USC Racing electronics lead. "Because of the way we work, we do design work in the fall semester and then we do production in the spring.
As if Deng isn't busy enough, he recently began assisting USC Viterbi Professor Paul Ronney with his research. Ronney believes Deng will make a mark in the field. "When you have someone as gifted as Eric, you kind of want to let him do his own thing, Ronney said. "I don't think of my role as necessarily advising him as it is maybe guiding him”.
In the future, Deng said he would like to have a career in aerospace, electronics or the automobile industry. He also hopes to start his own company and perhaps become an entrepreneur
one day. Meanwhile, his passion for engineering continues to drive his curiosity.
65. When did Eric Deng start developing his interest in robotics?
A. When he became a USC student B. When he was in high school
C. When he was a sixth grader. D. When he created a 3-D printer.
66. What does Eric try to do this year for the racing competition?
A. To make a remote-controlled car B.To improve the power of a car.
C. To build a powerful robot D. To reduce the fuel cost of a car
67. What does the underlined word in the last paragraph probably mean?
A.An inventor. B. A professor.
C. A businessman D. A racing drive
68. Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. A Freshman Races toward his Dream
B. Eric Deng's School life in South China
C. An Interesting Racing Competition in USC
D. Differences between Education in China and the USAD
A woman heads into a popular New York City coffee shop on a cold winter morning. Just ahead of her, a man drops a file full of documents. The woman pauses, and helps gather the papers. Six blocks away, a different man enters another shop, but not before politely holding the door for the person behind him. A clerk at another busy store thanks a customer who's just made a purchase. "Enjoy, "the young woman says, smiling widely. "Have a nice day. " She sounds like she really means it。
Whoa. Common courtesy(谦恭有礼)on the mean streets of a city known for its in-your face style? Have New Yorkers suddenly gone soft?
In her international bestselling death-of-manners manifesto (宣言)Talk to the Hand
author Lynne Truss argues that common courtesies such as saying"Excuse me "are practically dying out. There are certainly plenty who would agree with her. Consider that in one recent survey, 70 percent of U. S. adults said people are ruder now than they were 20 years ago.
Is it really true? Reader’ s Digest decided to find out if courtesy truly is disappearing.
They performed three experiments: " door tests"(would anyone hold one open for them?)
" document drops"(who would help them with a pile of"accidentally " dropped papers?), and "service tests"(which salesclerks would thank them for a purchase?)
The tests were conducted at Starbucks coffee shops, by now almost as common in the
Big Apple as streetlights. In all, 60 tests were done. Along the way, the reporters encountered all types: men and women of different races, ages, professions, and income levels.
And guess what? In the end, four out of every five people they encountered passed Reader Digest courtesy test--making New York the most courteous city in the world.
While 90 percent of New Yorkers passed the door test, only 55 percent did well in the document drop. Are people less likely to help others when doing so takes extra effort or time? Not always, the reporters found. Take the pregnant woman who thought nothing of bending down to help us with our papers. Or a person named Liz who carefully balanced(平衡) two coffees, her keys and her wallet on a takeout tray with one hand. while picking up papers of the wet pavement with the other. Her reason for helping? "I was there, "she said matter-of-factly.
69. Why does the author give three examples at the beginning of the text?
A. To show how busy New Yorkers are. B. To show the friendliness of New Yorkers.
C.To show New Yorkers'daily life D. To show businessmen's courtesy
70. What does Lynne Truss say in Talk to the Hand?
A. People are less and less polite to others. B. People are using"excuse me"too often.
C.People should pay a price for being rude. D. People should be more practical in life.
71. Why did the researchers carry out their research in Starbucks coffee shops?
A. They're inexpensive B. They stay open late
C. They're popular. D They attract business people
72 How did the reporters explain the result from the document drop test?
A. Those who helped had good balancing ability
B. More people performed better in other tests.
C. Fewer people passed it as more efforts are involved
