In a moment of personal crisis, how much help can you expect from a
One morning I got into three different taxis and announced, “Well, it’s my first day back in
Taxi drivers were uniformly (一致地) sympathetic when I said I’d just been fired. “This is
One very hot weekday in July, while wearing a red skin mask and holding a stuffed (塞满的) pillowcase with the word “BANK” on it, I tried hailing(招呼) a taxi five times outside different banks. The driver picked me up every time. My ride with Guy Caaude Thevenain, a Haitian driver, was typical of the superb (一流的) assistance I received.
“Is anyone following us?”
“No,” said the driver, looking in his rearview mirror at traffic and me.
“Let’s go across the park,” I said. “I just robbed the bank there. I got $ 25,000.”
“$25,000?” he asked.
“Yeah, you think it was wrong to take it?”
“No, man. I work 8 hours and I earn just $70. If I can do that, I do it too.”
As we approached 86,
“Hey, there’s another bank,” I said, “Could you wait here a minute while I go inside?”
“No, I can’t wait. Pay me now.” His reluctance may have something to do with money — taxi drivers think the rate for waiting time is too low, but I think he wanted me to learn that even a bank robber can’t expect unconditional support.

Questions 31 to 35 are based on the following passage:
Although suicide rates around the world are about three times higher for men than women, evidence is mounting that in developing countries in
In a study this week in The Lancet medical journal, researchers give the first picture of suicide among young people in
Experts say the latest study was based on too few suicides to be certain the observed rates are valid, but added that the research shows suicide is vastly underreported in the developing world.
One of the major differences between suicide in the West and in developing countries is the method. It is known from studies in the West that more women than men attempt suicide, but fewer succeed.
Usually, women in Western countries attempt suicide by slashing their wrists or swallowing pills, both methods that are treatable. In rural
Some of the pesticides, widely kept in rural homes, kill within three hours. For women trying to kill themselves in the countryside, where there is no transportation and sometimes no roads, it is often too late by the time they reach a hospital.
There are a few theories why young Asian women are committing suicide at such a high rate.
“It could be because of lack of education, conflicts surrounding the issue of arranged marriages, love failures, dowries and things like that,” said Dr. Lakshmi Vijayakumar, who runs the
Once the women have children, they become emotionally and psychologically stronger and the suicide rate goes down, she said.

D. marriage issues
Questions 36 to 40 are based on the following passage:
Like many other small boys, I was fascinated by cars, not least because my oldest brother was a bit of a car guy and subscribed to cool magazines like Car and Driver and Motor Trend. Every so often, one of those magazines would run an article on the “Car of the Future.” They featured unconventional styling and things like small nuclear reactors as power sources. Yet, frankly, my car doesn’t do anything that my brother’s Studebaker didn’t do. It goes, it stops, it burns gasoline, it plays music. I still have to steer it, and it still runs into things if I don’t steer it carefully.
But guess what? All of these things are subjected to change in the not-so-distant future. It will still go and stop, but it may not burn gasoline, I may not have to steer it, and it may be a lot better at not running into things.
Airbags aren’t the be-all and end-all in safety. In fact, considering the recent news about people occasionally being killed by their airbags in low-speed collisions (碰撞), they obviously still need some development. But they aren’t going away, and in fact, you can expect to see cars appearing with additional, side-impact airbags, something some European car manufacturers already offer.
Better than systems to minimize injury in the event of an accident, however, are systems that minimize the likelihood of an accident happening in the first place. Future cars may be able to eliminate many of the major causes of accidents, including drunk-driving, tailgating and sleepiness. Cars could be equipped with sensors that can detect alcohol in a driver’s system and prevent the car from being started, for example. Many accidents are caused by people following the car in front too closely. As early as next year, you’ll be able to buy cars with radar-equipped control systems. If the radar determines you’re closing too quickly with the car in front, it will ease up on the throttle. For city streets, expect other radar devices that will give advance warning that the car in front of you has slowed abruptly and you should step on the brakes — or that may even brake for you.#p#分页标题#e#

To Get Along With Your Roommates
Roommate conflicts among college students are often heard on campus over recent years. Study shows that these conflicts make the excitement of campus life grow grey and have bad effects on both their living and learning.
Roommate conflicts often spring from daily trivial things such as time when to turn off the light and space where to store luggage or personal belongings. When personalities don’t mix, the specifics can tear roommates apart and sometimes even lead to serious conflicts. Besides, the fact that roommates hold different attitudes towards certain issue is another factor causing these conflicts.
Roommate conflicts are harmful and need to be settled. Though many people think that school discipline can soften the conflicts, I believe learning to be tolerant with each other can play a more constructive role because it teaches students flexibility and the art of compromise. Meanwhile, communication contributes to the solution to this problem since many of these conflicts stem from misunderstanding.
