Much meaning can be conveyed clearly with our eyes, so it is often said that eyes can speak.
1.In a bus you may look at a stranger, but not for too long. And if he sensed that you are staring at him, he may feel uncomfortable.
The same is true in our daily life. If you are stared at for more than necessary, you will look at yourself up and down to see if there is anything wrong with you. 2.. Eyes do speak, right？
Looking too long at someone may seem to be rude and aggressive.3.. If a man stares at a woman for more than 10 seconds and refuses to look away from her, his intentions are obvious. He wishes to attract her attention, and let her know that he is admiring her.
However, when two persons are engaged in a conversation, the speaker will only look into the listener’s eyes from time to time to make sure that the listener does pay attention to what the former is speaking.4.If a speaker looks at you continuously when speaking as if he trying to control you, you will feel awkward. A poor liar usually exposes himself by looking too long at the victim. He wrongly believes that looking straight in the eye is a sign of honest communication. 5.
Actually, eye contact should be made based on specific relationship and situation.
A. On the contrary, it will give him away.
B. Do you have such a kind of experience?
C. That’s what normal eye contact is all about.

In the town of Whitesburg, Kentucky, Mick Polly is known as the bike man. Over the past five years, Mick has built hundreds of bicycles for needy kids.
One day in 2011, a 13-year-old boy with a broken bike walked by Mick's house. "I was working in my garage, and he asked if I could fix it." says Mick, now 53. The boy left his bike with Mick, who asked friends on Facebook if they had the missing part. The town's former police chief saw the post and donated two used bicycles. Mick took parts from each to engineer a new set of wheels for the boy.
Soon after, Mick repaired a bike for the boy's brother and assembled one for his sister. Word spread, and within the year, he had fixed up dozens of bikes for local kids whose parents couldn't afford to buy new ones.
"The people in this town don't have much, but they'll do anything for the children." says Mick Polly. He stores the bikes and bike parts in his garage. "I take off the good tires or the handlebars or the seat and use them."
To date, the bike man has repaired hundreds of cycles and given away nearly 700 newly constructed bikes. They're free, but the kids must agree to two things: They've got to "mind whoever's raising them." and they've got to try in school.
If a kid's grades are low, Mick requires a teacher's note "saying that you're doing your best." Mick says.
Mick also hopes the bikes will get kids off the couch(沙发). "When I was growing up, we all rode our bikes," he says. "Hopefully these kids can get some exercise."
1.How did Mick build his bikes?
A. With the designs from Facebook.
B. With the parts bought from others.
C. With the broken parts collected from other garages.
D. With the good parts of the used bikes donated by others.
2.Which of the following can replace the underlined word "assembled" in the Paragraph 4?
A. Built. B. Sold.
C. Donated. D. Stored.
3.Which of the following can describe Mick Polly best?
A. Skillful. B. Popular.
C. Caring D. Enthusiastic.

Imagine you’ve finally landed a job of your dreams in another city. It’s everything you’d hoped for, but there’s only one problem — housing costs in the area are so high that you’re forced to live in a parking lot.
While this sounds like an impossible situation, this predicament is a reality for one man.
Brandon, 25, is a software engineer for Google at its San Francisco, California campus.
“I realized I was paying too large an amount of money for the apartment I was staying in, and I was almost never home,” he told Business Insider. “It’s really hard to justify throwing that money away. You’re not putting money into anything and you are not building it up for a future.”
Since scoring his job in May 2015 following a successful internship, he’s been living in a truck on a parking lot a short distance from his workplace.
The tech worker makes up for the lack of facilities by eating, using the bathroom and showering at work, also charging his phone and computer there.
San Francisco is home to the most expensive rental market in the US, with the average rental for a one-bedroom apartment coming to $3,590 (24,900 yuan) a month, according to property site Zumper.
And while some may not be able to handle giving up life’s luxuries just to put aside some cash, Brandon estimates that he’s saved almost $28,000 since he moved in just over 18 months ago.
“Not only do I get to invest all of that redirected rent money, but I get to invest all the money I’m not spending on furniture, facilities and buying food,” Brandon wrote on his blog.
1.Which of the following can replace the underlined word “predicament” in Paragraph 2？
A. possibility B. disappointment C. dilemma D. mess
2.Why does Brandon prefer to live in a truck on a parking lot?
A. Because he has no time to go back to an apartment.
B. Because the rent is too high and he thinks it isn’t worthwhile
C. Because his workplace provides him with what he needs
D. Because he wants to save money for an apartment of his own.
3.What does Brandon think of his choice?
A. Difficult. B. Embarrassing. C. Painful. D. Wise.

On 29 May last year, I was doing my swim training for a half Ironman race in the bay near my home.
I was finishing my first loop (圈) when I felt jaws coming around my body and a sharp pain. The water was dark, so I couldn’t see anything. It just came out of nowhere and then it was gone in a flash. I knew it was something really big and assumed it was a shark. I panicked, but knew I needed to get out of the water. I was kicking wildly in case it came back. There was a lifeguard boat close by, so I waved my arms in the air and screamed for help. It got to me within 20 seconds. At that point I didn’t feel anything; adrenaline (肾上腺素) had taken over. The lifeguards held me under the arms and pulled me up out of the water. Then the pain kicked in and it was pretty hard to bear. Some muscle had been bitten off my right arm. I felt a lot of warm, gushing blood.
My chest felt heavy, as if someone had put their foot on it, and I was having trouble breathing. It was extremely painful. When I got to the hospital, I told the nurses to put me to sleep because of the pain. I just wanted them to fix me.
I woke up after surgery four hours later. My doctor was amazed when I managed to move my fingers: the bite just missed a major nerve. My right lung had been damaged; I had several broken bones and a nerve in my leg was cut, so I have reduced feeling at the top of my leg. The shark also bit through my upper back muscle.
Local experts determined that the shark was probably 9-10 feet long. It was young, about seven years old. It just attacked me, left and didn’t come back because it figured I wasn’t food.
1.The writer mentions Adrenaline in Paragraph 2 to ________.
A. explain why she didn’t feel pain at that time
B. offer a possible reason the shark attacked her
C. show how dangerous the situation was then
D. describe the suffering a shark bite could cause
2.The writer of the text can be best described as ________.
A. grateful B. confident
C. tough D. aggressive
3.Which of the following might be the best title for the text?
A. A Shark from Nowhere
B. Surviving a Shark Attack
C. A Race against Time
D. No Panic over Sharks at Sea

Bendable wings covered with overlapping (重叠部分) pieces looking like fish scales could be used to build more controllable, fuel?efficient aircraft, a new study finds.
Nowadays, conventional aircraft typically rely on ailerons (副翼) to help control the way the planes tilt (倾斜) as they fly. However, when the Wright brothers flew the first airplane, Flyer 1, over a century ago, they used no ailerons but wires that pulled and stretched the wood?and?canvas wings, to control the plane.
“Scientists have long sought to develop aircraft that can change their wings during flight, just as birds can. However, most previous attempts have failed because they relied on heavy mechanical control structures within the wings. These structures were also complex and unreliable，” said Neil Gershenfeld, a physicist and director of the Centre for Bits and Atoms at MIT.
The new wing consists of a system of tiny, strong and lightweight modules (组件). The shape of the wing can be changed uniformly along its length using two small motors, which apply a twisting pressure to each wingtip. These wings are covered in “skins” of overlapping strips of flexible material like fish scales. These strips move across each other as the wings change themselves, providing a smooth outer surface, the researchers explained.
Wind tunnel tests of these wings showed that they at least matched the aerodynamic (气动) properties of conventional wings, at about one?tenth the weight. “Initial tests using remotely piloted aircraft made with these wings have shown great promise，” said Benjamin Jenett, a graduate student at the Centre for Bits and Atoms at MIT.
The new modular structures the scientists developed could be manufactured quickly in mass quantities and then installed by teams of small robots. These modular structures also can be disassembled more easily, making repairs simpler.
“Still, the first aircraft built using this strategy will not be a passenger jet，” Gershenfeld said. “Instead, the technology will likely first be tested on unmanned aircrafts, leading to aircrafts flying for a long time, to help deliver Internet access or medicine to remote villages.”
1.Why is the Wright brothers' airplane mentioned in the text?
A. To show the history of aircrafts.
B. To show the development of wings.
C. To show the need to improve planes.
D. To show the structure of conventional planes.
2.What makes planes fly like birds when they tilt?
A. Their ailerons. B. Wires and pulleys.
C. Changeable wings. D. Mechanical control structures.
3.What is Paragraph 4 mainly about?
A. The shape of the new wings.
B. The purpose of the overlapping strips.
C. The working principle of the new wings.
D. The result of wind?tunnel tests of these wings.
4.What does the underlined word “disassemble” mean in Paragraph 6?
A. Replace. B. Analyze.
C. Put away. D. Take apart.

How fit are your teeth? Are you lazy about brushing them? Never fear: An inventor is on the case. An electric toothbrush senses how long and how well you brush, and it lets you track your performance on your phone.
The Kolibree toothbrush was exhibited at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week. It senses how it is moved and can send the information to an Android phone or iPhone via a Bluetooth wireless connection.
The toothbrush will be able to teach you to brush right (don’t forget the insides of the teeth!) and make sure you’re brushing long enough. “It’s kind of like having a doctor actually watch your brushing on a day-to-day basis,” says Thomas Serval, the French inventor.
The toothbrush will also be able to talk to other applications(应用) on your phone, so developers could, for example, create a game controlled by your toothbrush. You could score points for beating monsters(怪物) among your teeth. “We try to make it smart but also fun,” Serval says.
Serval says he was inspired by his experience as a father. He would come home from work and ask his kids if they had brushed their teeth. They said “yes,” but Serval would find their toothbrush heads dry. He decided he needed a brush that really told him how well his children brushed.
The company says the Kolibree will go on sale this summer, for $99 to $199, depending on features. The U.S. is the first target market.
Serval says that one day, it’ll be possible to replace the brush on the handle with a brushing unit that also has a camera. The camera can even examine holes in your teeth while you brush.
1.Which is one of the features of the Kolibree toothbrush?
A. It can sense how users brush their teeth.
B. It can track users’ school performance.
C. It can cause users’ fear of seeing a doctor.
D. It can help users find their phones.
2.What can we learn from Serval’s words in Paragraph 3?
A. You will find it enjoyable to see a doctor.
B. You should see your doctor on a day-to-day basis.
C. You can brush with the Kolibree as if guided by a doctor.
D. You’d like a doctor to watch you brush your teeth every day.
3.What is Paragraph 5 mainly about?
A. How Serval found out his kids lied to him.
B. Why Serval thought brushing teeth was necessary.
C. How Serval taught his kids to brush their teeth.
D. What inspired Serval to invent the toothbrush.
4.What can we learn about the future development of the Kolibree?
A. The brush handle will be removed.
B. A mobile phone will be built into it.
C. It will be used to fill holes in teeth.
D. It will be able to check users’ teeth.
