  In a study of older people with sisters andbrothers, psychologist Debra Gold of the Duke Center for the study of aging andhuman development found that about 20% said they were hostile or indifferent toward their sisters and brothers. Reasons for this ranged from inheritancedisputes to hostility between spouses. But, many of those who had poorrelationships felt guilty. Although most people admitted to some lingeringrivalry, it was rarely strong enough to end the relationship. Only four out ofthe 54 people interviewed had completely broken with their sisters and brothersand only one of the four felt comfortable with the break. As sisters andbrothers advanced into old age, closeness increases and rivalry diminishes,explains VC, a psychologist at Purdue University. Most of the elderly people heinterviewed said they had supportive and friendly dealings and got along wellor very well with their sisters and brothers. Only 4% got along poorly. Goldfound that as people age, they often become more involved with and interestedin their sisters and brothers. 53% of those she interviewed said that contactwith their sisters and brothers increase innate adulthood. With family andcareer obligations reduced, many said that they had more time for each other.Others said that they felted with time to heal wounds. A man who had recentlyreconciled with his brother told Gold there’s something that lets older people to put asidebad deeds of the past and focus a little on what we need now, especially whenit’s sistersand brothers。

  Hetty’s meanness was well-known. She always argued about prices in shops. She walked to the local grocery store to buy broken biscuits which were much cheaper, and to get a free bone for her much loved dog. Once she lost a two-cent stamp and spent the night looking for it.

  Farmington, Utah, is a more pleasant community since a local girls' 4-H club improved Main Street. Six 4-H girls worked to clean the 72 foot curbside that was covered with weeds, rocks and trash. Each member volunteered to clean up and to dig in plot, five flats of flowers. They also took terms in watering, weeding and maintaining the plot. Participation in this project helped the girls developed a new attitude towards their parents of their own homes; they've learned how to work with tools, and improve their work habits. One mother said that before her daughter was involved in this project, she would not even pour a weed. The experience on Main Street stimulated self-improvement, and encouraged members to take pride in their home grounds and the total community. City officials cooperated with the 4-H members in planting trees, building cooking facilities, pick-me tables, swings and public rest rooms. The 4-H girls planted trees and took care of them during the early stages of growth. The total park project needed more plantings in the following years. Members of the 4-H club agreed to follow the project through to completion, because they receive satisfaction from the results of constructive work. The project is a growing one and is spread from the park to the school and the shopping center. Trees and flowers have all been planted in the shopping center, making the atmosphere pleasant。

  Q: What does the woman imply?

  The first copy right law in the United Stateswas passed by congress in 1790. In 1976, congress enacted the latest copy rightlaw, taking into consideration the technological developments that had occurredsince the passage of the copy right act of 1909. For example, in 1909 anyonewho wanted to make a single copy of a literary work for personal use had to doso by hand. The very process imposed a limitation on the quantity of materials copied.Today, a photo copier can do the work in seconds. The limitation hasdisappeared. The 1909 Law did not provide full protection for films and soundrecordings nor did it anticipate the need to protect radio and television. As aresult, violations of the law and abuses of the intent of the law have lessenedthe financial rewards of authors, artists and producers. The 1976 copy rightact has not prevented these abuses fully, but it has clarified the legal rightsof the injured parties and given them an avenue for remedy. Since 1976 the acthas been amended to include computer software and guidelines have been adoptedfor fair use of television broadcasts. These changes have cleared up much ofthe confusion and conflict that followed in the wake of 1976 legislation. Thefine points of the law are decided by the courts and by acceptable commonpractice overtime. As these decisions and agreements are made, we modify ourbehavior accordingly. For now, we need to interpret the law and its guidelinesas accurately as we can and to act in a fair manner。

  M: I used to feel the same as you. But now I quite enjoy it。

  M: Well, for three days, you would have to haveit under the unlimited mileage conditions, 

  Thank you for coming, everyone. Today’s presentation will show how we see the development of the motor car in the short to medium term, and that is why we have invited all of you here today. Let’s start with power. It’s clear that petrol-driven engines have no future. Already there are many alternative fuel vehicles on the market, powered by anything from solar power to natural gas. Some independent thinkers have even produced cars that run on vegetable oil. But as we all know, of all these alternative fuel vehicles, the most practical are electric vehicles. Sure, in the past electric vehicles have their problems, namely, a limited driving range, and very few recharging points, which limited their use. Now, however, recent developments in electric vehicle technology mean they can match conventional petrol engines in terms of performance and safety. Let’s not forget that electric vehicles are cleaner. Plus, importantly, the power source is rechargeable, so this does not involve using any valuable resources. Moving on to communications, very soon, cars will be linked to GPS satellites, so they’ll do all the driving for you. What controls remain for the users will be audio-based, so, for example, you’ll just have to say “a bit warmer”, and the air conditioning will adjust automatically. You’ll also be able to receive email, music and movies, all via an internet link. So just type in the destination you want, sit back, sleep, watch your movie, whatever。

  5. W: Rod, I hear you’ll be leaving at the end of this month. Is it true?

The butterflies are so numerous that they oftencover the entire trees. When spring comes, they began their long journey north.The question is often asked whether every butterfly makes the round tripjourney every year. And the answer is no.

  Questions 33-35 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  An extraordinarily important study skill is knowing how to mark a book. Students mark the main ideas and important details with a pen or pencil, yellow or blue or orange. Some students mark new vocabulary in a different color. Most students write questions or short notes in the margins. Marking a book is a useful skill, but it's important to do it right. First, read a chapter with one pen in your hand and others next to you on the desk. Second, read a whole paragraph before you mark anything. Don't mark too much. Usually you will mark about 10% of a passage. Third, decide on your own system for marking. For example, maybe you will mark main ideas in yellow, important details in blue and new words in orange. Maybe you will put question marks in the margin when you don't understand something and before an exam. Instead, you just need to review your marks and you can save a lot of time。
