Rome had the forum. London has Speaker’s Corner. Now always-on-the-go New Yorker have Liz and Bill.
Liz and Bill, two college graduates in their early 20s, have spent a whole year trying to have thousands of people talk to them in the subway station and on busy street corners. Just talk.
Using a 2-feet-high sign that says, “Talk to Me,” they attract conversationalists, who one evening included a mental patient, and men in business suits.
They don’t collect money. They don’t push the religion. So what is the point?
“To see what happens, ” said Liz. “We simply enjoy life with open conversation（交流）.”
Shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks, they decided to walk from New York city to Washington, a 270-mile trip. They found they loved talking to people along the way and wanted to
talk with the strangers after their return.
“It started as a crazy idea,” Liz said. “We were so curious about all the strangers walking by with their stories. People will talk to us about anything: their jobs, their clothes, their childhood, anything.”
Denise wanted to talk about an exam she was going to take. She had stopped for the second time in two days, to let two listeners know how it went.
Marcia had lost her husband to a serious disease. “That was very heavy on my mind,” Marcia said. “ To be able to talk about it to totally strangers was very good, ” she explained.
To celebrate a year of talking, the two held a get-together in a city park for all the people they had met in the past year. A few hundred people showed up, as well as some television cameramen and reporters.
They may plan more parties or tried to attract more people to join their informal talks. Some publishers have expressed their interest in the book, something they say they’ll consider.
56. What did Liz and Bill start doing after September 2001?
A. Chatting with people B. Setting up street signs
C. Telling stories to strangers D. Orgnising a speaker’s corner
57. What they have been doing can be describe as ______.
A. pointless B. normal C. crazy D. successful

A. They knew Liz and Bill very well. B. They happened to meet the writer of the text.
C. They organized the get-together in the city park.
D. They are example of those who talked to Liz and Bill.
59. What will Liz and Bill do in the future?
A. Going for publishing. B. Do more television program.
C. Continuing what they are doing. D. Spending more time reading books.
60. How do they like the idea of writing a book?

C. They agreed immediately. D. They found it hard to do that.
My first reaction was annoyance. It was Friday afternoon, and I was within an hour of finishing my work for the week. As I was leaving, a nurse brought me one more patient message. The statement read, “Mir. Johns called to say that she has had blurred vision (视觉模糊) ever since her medical test this morning. ” I smiled. Suddenly our test were causing eye problems.
This week my patients had questioned everything. My patient with high pressure had stopped coming to her treatment on the advice of an International chat room. A woman who had mental problem was substituting（用......代替）St. John’s words for her medication. Now Mrs. Jones was imaging the problems. I rolled my eyes.
My second reaction was worry. As I looked through her record, I tried to figure out why she would have blurred vision, but nothing in her record explained the new problem. She’s probably just anxious, I thought. Still, she wouldn’t have called if she had been all right. I picked up the phone.
What next I felt can only be described as delight. Before I made the call, the nurse ran in: Mrs. Jones called. Her vision is fine. Turns out she picked up the wrong glasses when she left the office. The X-ray technician has been having the same problem. I let out a laugh. Mir. Jones had been right. Her vision had been blurred. Now we know why.
Finally I felt shame. I came to realize what Mir. Jones had taught me. I had first known she was wrong, that her anxiety has clouded her judgment. Instead, my medical training had clouded mine. Now I feel thankful that Mir. Jones had figured it out before I made a mistake about our relation. Patients came to me for my help. They pay me to listen, diagnose (诊断) , treat and talk. That suggests trust; I must remember that, and trust them too.

A. Mir. Jones would ask for more tests B. The patient was being unreasonable
C. the nurse was joking with him D. Mir. Jones would call him

A．Wrong glasses. B. Medical checkup. C. Her own imagination D. Chatting on the Internet
63. The underlined words “ clouded her judgment ” in the last paragraph probably mean ______ .

C. made her less able to think clearly D. put her in a dangerous situation
It’s not the flashiest car in the world. Not even close. But in 1971 Volkswagen named Helios can do something most cars can’t: run on solar energy – energy from the sun’s light and heat!
Joshua Bechtold, 14, and the other students at the Riverside School in Lyndonville, Vermont worked many months to get ready for the 1999 American Tour De Sol (“Sol” is the Latin word for “sun”). They named their car after Helios, the sun god in Greek mythology(神话).
The four-year-old Tour De Sol encouraged the use of “green”, or environmentally friendly, cars to help to reduce pollution and save energy. It’s not a race. Cars are judged on fuel efficiency (耗油量) rather than speed. In the week-long event, 44 cars took the 350-mile tour from Waterbury, Connecticut, to Lake Gorge, New York. Of the 23 student cars, Helios was the only one built by middle school students.
A teacher drove Helios, but the children talked with people wherever they stopped along the road. “That was my favourite part,” says Anna Browne, 15. “We explain how the car runs.”
Due in part to old, inefficient batteries (电池), Helios finished fourth – out of four, in its kind, the sun-powered class. “We were there for the fun of it,” Anne says, “We are proud of Helios,” says Ariel Gleicher, 14. “It’s a car that’s good for the environment.”
64. What is special about the car Helios in the text?
A. It was built by middle school students. B. It has an attractive design.
C. It was made in 1971. D. It won the fourth prize.
65. How many sun-powered cars took part in the race？
A. 1 B. 4 C. 23 D. 44
66. What would be the best title for the text?
A. The Making of Helios B. 1999 American Tour De Sol
C. Sun-powered Cars on the Road D. Use of Green Cars in Connecticut
67. The students felt proud of Helios because ______ .
A. it could run as far as 350 miles. B. it was favored by many children
C. it had high-quality batteries D. it was driven by clean energy
The other day, my friends Jane was invited to a 40th birthday party. The time printed on the invitation was 7.30pm. Jane went off with her husband, expecting a merry evening of wine, food, and song.
By 9.45, everybody was having great fun, but no food had appeared. Jane and John was restless. Other guests began whispering that, too, were starving. But no one wanted to leave, just in case some food was about to appear. By 11.00, there was still no food, and everyone was completely off their heads. Jane and John left hungry and angry.
Their experience suggests that the words on the printed invitations need to made clearer. Everyone reads and understands the invitations differently. Most of us would agree that 6.30—8.30pm means drinks only, go out to dinner afterwards; 8.0pm or 8.30pm means possible dinner, but 9.30pm or thereafter means no food, eat before hand, roll up late.
But this is not always the case. If asked to a students’ party at 6.30pm, it’s normal for guests not to appear before midnight, if at all, and no one cares. Being the first to arrive – looking eager – is social death. When my mother asked to a party for 6.30, she likes to be there, if not on time, then no later than seven. My age group (late thirties) falls somewhere between the two, but because we still think we’re young. We’re probably closer to student-time than grown-up time.
The accepted custom at present is confusing (混乱的), sometimes annoying, and it often means you may go home hungry, but it does lend every party that precious element（成分）of surprise.
68. The underlined words “of their heads” probably mean ______.
A. tired B. crazy C. curious D. hopeless
69. Jane and John’s story is used to show that ______.
A. party-goers usually get hungry at parties B. party invitations can be confusing
C. people should ask for food at parties D. birthday parties for middle-aged are dull
70. For some young people, arriving on time for a students’ party will probably be considered ______.
A. very difficult B. particularly thoughtful C. friendly and polite D. socially unacceptable
71. According to the writer, people in their late thirties ______.
A. are likely to arrive late for the party B. care little about the party time
C. haven’t really grown up yet D. like surprises at parties
72. What is the general idea of the text?
A. It’s safe to arrive late just when the food is served.
B. It’s wise to eat something before going to a party.
C. It’s important to follow the social rules of party-going.
D. It’s necessary to read invitations carefully.
