"Babies are supposed to instinctually know who they daddy is," Gerald, Dooriya's daddy, said, holding Dooriya before him."But she don't recognize nothing." Everybody had something to say about raising my baby, but none of them actually did any raising. Taking Dooriya to see the ocean had become the only thing that kept me from feeling like my life was an everlasting losing race, this vision of what could be for my little girl.When I told Momma about my plans to visit the lighthouse(灯塔)at Cape Hatteras, she just spun her broken record. "That baby'11 never understand a thing of what she's seeing." "My baby book says I should treat her just like any other child.It's good to show her beautiful things even if she don't know what she's seeing . It helps her brain develop.How's her brain gonna develop if all she ever sees is the walls inside this crummy house?" "That child's brain ain't never gonna develop.We love her, but it's not like she's ever gonna not be a Mongoloid(先天愚型患者) ." I had read a half-dozen books about Down Syndrome that said stimulation(刺激) might improve a child's chances of developing to her fullest potential.And what's more stimulating than a trip to see the ocean? Guidebooks described the area as the land of beginnings, which I liked the sound of.But before I could map out a plan, I woke up one night when Dooriya hiccupped (打 嗝) .Then she just stopped breathing.The ER doctor gave me a pamphlet on SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) and said, children with Down Syndrome are much more likely to be affected by this sort of thing. I didn't remember much about driving to Cape Hatteras, especially taking Dooriya from the hospital. But up on that lighthouse, with its broad spiral running up and around it like a black and white barber's pole, I saw my life twist into the air. As I climbed the winding stairs, I counted the steps, 268 in all, stopping on 77, Dooriya's very number of days on this planet.At the top, I held Dooriya up to the Atlantic, its cold air raising the thin soft hair on her head. With her eyes closed and her arms spread out, it looked like she was bathing in the warmth of the sun. 51.From Gerald's words "But she don't recognize nothing." we know ____.

C We all, at one time or another, have pretended to be a rock star, singing and dancing along to our favorite song.Most of us have done this in the privacy of our own room when we were kids and as adults, in the privacy of our homes. Me? I love to do that when I drive! 1 turn on the radio, find a song that I can sing along too and pretty soon my arms are in the air and I am moving along to the rhythm. Most of the time, I do this on my way to work. Yes, that is true, I will be in my nice work clothes, jamming while driving or stopped at a traffic light I get weird(古怪的) )looks from some people and others laugh.Personally, I love to get lost in the rhythm of a song which leads me to share with you the importance of being silly! The definition for the word silly, according to the dictionary is: stupid, foolish and nonsensical.I know many people do not want to look foolish.So they walk around all serious, which in all honesty, is foolish! No one is perfect, I repeat: no one is perfect.I don't care how educated, how thin, how beautiful, how simple, how frugal (节俭的) how rich, and so on.. one is perfect! , . No

8 / 14

So why pretend to be something you are not? Life is so short..You never know when this beautiful journey will be over, so why . waste a single second on being so full of rigidity(呆板)? Here is a quote by Souza, that I think says it all and is a great recipe for life: "Dance as though no one is watching you, Love as though you have never been hurt before, Sing as though no one can hear you, Live as though heaven is on earth." When we were kids, we had no idea of what limitations were and we had no care in the . world so we could do things without worrying about how we appeared to others.However, as we grew up, we lost that childlike innocence. So don't lose the child that still lives within you.The next time you feel down, go turn on your favorite song, and sing and dance along like there is no tomorrow.Or watch something that makes you laugh.Laughter is the best medicine to whatever ails (使痛 苦) you and nothing is better than laughing so hard that your stomach hurts.Trust me, you will feel a whole lot better, and who doesn't want to feel good? 59.According to the text, what does the writer usually do?

No longer do students just wait for visiting campus recruiters to learn about job possibilities.Instead they're using digital tools to find their dream jobs, says I Love Rewards CEO Razor Suleman.Companies need to know their online image, then update anything that is outdated, inaccurate or not inleractive(互动的) . 'The recruited have now become the recruiters," Suleman says."They are now going out and finding the companies they want to apply for." Students learn about employers by viewing their websites, reading Facehook and Twitter updates and perusing(精读)Linkedln profiles.Another information source: Comments by past and current employees on job-oriented websites. A strong digital presence is one way for employers to stand out as the search for the

best and brightest gets competitive. Slightly more than four in 10 employers say they will use "different" recruiting tactics (策略)to reach Generation Y, according to a survey by job-search site Monster.com to be released today.Of those respondents, almost 60% say social-networking sites are popular tools to reach Gen Y candidates. "Our reason for using social media is because that's where we think the candidates are," he says. The company posts updates and videos on topics such as job opportunities and the benefits of being an employee.It also created a mobile-friendly site for those who want to apply via smart phone. "Younger people want to attach to you in a different way than the past," Lavery says."They want to interact with you.They want to learn about you." The updated recruitment techniques take effort, but they work, he says. In 2010, UPS used those tactics to recruit 955 employees.The year before, it hired 29 employees through those means. "It's a time investment (投资) you have to be willing to do," he says. that "You can't just have a page up there and not have content.In social media, you have to have a give and a take, or people won't be a part of your community." 63.In order to find their dream jobs, more American graduates like to use ____.

D.Because companies like to post videos and updates about their products. 65.The underlined word "recruit" in Paragraph 11 probably means ____. A.fire B.attract C.contact D.employ 66.From what Lavery says, we can conclude that ____. A.it is very easy for a company to hire graduates through social media B.a company has to make great efforts to find the best graduates C.a company doesn’t have to update the information about it D.graduates are afraid to communicate with the boss of the company E Squirrels often communicate with whistles, chirps and chucks, which sound like the word “chuck”. Whistles and chirps are like the sounds that many birds make.Now scientists have translated some of their squirrel-speak. Hare, a professor of zoology at the University of Maniloha in Winnipeg, and his team managed to record squirrels' alarm calls.The researchers studied the sounds and then played them back to 60 wild squirrels, which the scientists approached individually with a video recorder to capture(抓拍)their reponses.Some squirrels lifted their heads up and became. (警惕的) Creatures that were more frightened simply ran for their lives and Alert . dived into caves. "In effect then, whistles that mix with chucks say 'there's an enemy of average threat that's here', and whistles without chucks say 'there's an enemy of seemingly average

10 / 14

threat around here somewhere', while pure chirps say, 'I'm hiding here because there's an immediate danger.' " Hare told.Discovery News. Hare and some other researchers believe such sounds arc part of an advanced language that develops just as all other communication systems. Although squirrels risk their lives when they call out to warn others of threats, other squirrels might admire this behaviour, thus increasingly the caller’s social status, like humans who look up to heroes. Hare added that other animals, such as birds, probably understand at least some squirrel language, since they also may benefit from the alarm calls. In fact, another Canadian study found that deep-voiced, black-capped chickadees have their own language too.According to certain research, there are a lot of tidings in chickadees' calls, such as directing fellows' activities, keeping in contact between mates, and raising alarms. While chickadees and other birds are often welcomed into gardens by homeowners, squirrels are frequently viewed as pests(害兽). Hare wishes a greater understanding of the complex social lives and communication systems of squirrels will provide “hope that humans will gain a greater appreciation and stop doing harm to these animals”. 67.The text mainly talks about . A.the study on the language of squirrels B.the comparison between squirrels and chickadees C.the calling for the protection of squirrels D.the ways for squirrels to escape from their enemies 68.If a squirrel is in a very dangerous situation, it would probably make ____. A.whistles with chucks B.pure chirps C.whistles without chucks D.repeated chucks 69.The underlined word “tidings” in pardgmph 6 probably means ____. A.difficulties B.poises C.messages D.languages 70.What can be learned from this text? A.Squirrels communicate with cach other as humans do. B.Some squirrels understand the recorded alarm calls. C.Other animals also well understand the language of squirrels. D.Birds such as chickadees don’t have their own language. 第四部分:书面表达(共两节,满分 40 分) 第一节:完成句子(共 10 小题,每小题 1.5 分,满分 15 分) 阅读下列各小题,根据括号内的汉语提示,用句末括号内的英语单词完成句子,并将答 案写在答题卡上的相应题号后。 71.I'm afraid I can't attend your birthday party at 5 P.M.next Monday.I (已乘 飞机) to London long before then.
