We are all busy talking about and using the Internet, but how many of us know the history of the Internet?
Many people are surprised when they find that the Internet was set up (建立) in the 1960s. At that time, computers were large and expensive. Computer networks (网络) didn’t work well. If one computer in the network broke down, then the whole network stopped. So a new network system (系统) had to be set up. It should be good enough to be used by many different computers. If part of the network was not working, information could be sent through another part. In this way computer network system would keep on working all the time.
At first the Internet was only used by the government (政府), but in the early 1970s, universities, hospitals and banks were allowed to use it, too. However, computers were still very expensive and the Internet was difficult to use. By the start of 1990s, computers became cheaper and easier to use. Scientists had also developed software that made “surfing” the Internet easier.

Nearly all our food comes from the soil. Some of us eat meat, of course, but animals live on plants. If there were no plants, we would have no animals and no meat. So the soil is very necessary for life. The top of the ground is usually covered with grass or other plants. There may be dead leaves and dead plants on the grass. The waste matter (粪) from animals also falls on it.
All soil needs food. If we do not give it any, the plants will be weak. Farmers found that animals’ waste is the best food for the soil, but chemical fertilizers (化肥) are also very useful. The same crop (庄稼) should not be grown in the same place every year; it’s better to have a different crop. A change of crop and the use of a good fertilizer will keep the land good.

Tom went into the station soon after five o’clock in the afternoon. This is a bad time to travel in London, both by bus and by train, because lots of people go home from work at this hour. He had to join a long queue of people who were waiting for tickets. When at last his turn came, he got the right ticket. By asking several people the way, he also found the right platform (站台). It was crowded and he was not able to get on the first train, but he was able to move nearer to the edge of the platform to be ready to get on the next one. When a train came in, Tom was thrown on to the train by the rush of people from behind. The doors closed and the train moved off before he was able to get his breath (呼吸) out. Since he was not able to see the names of the stations where the train stopped, he had to count the number of stops so that he knew where to get off. His station was the seventh along the line.
When the train reached the seventh station, Tom got off. But he was surprised to see that he had got off at a station that he had never heard of. A man on the platform told him that he had traveled on a train going in the wrong direction (方向).

Different countries and different people have different manners (礼貌). We must find out their customs (习俗) so that they will not think us ill-mannered (不礼貌). Here are examples of the things that a person with good education does or does not do.
If you visit a Chinese family, you should knock at the door first. When the door opens, you will not move before the host (男主人) says “Come in, please.” After you enter the room, you would not sit down until the host asks you to take a seat. When a cup of tea is put on a tea table before you or sent to your hand, you will say “Thank you” and receive it with two hands, not one hand, or they will think you are ill-mannered. Before entering a house in Japan, it is a good manner to take off your shoes. In European countries, even though shoes sometimes become very dirty, this is not done. In a Malay house, a visitor never finishes the food on the table. He leaves a little to show that he has had enough. In England, a visitor always finishes a drink or the food to show that he has enjoyed it. This will make the host pleasant.
70. Does the writer think it is necessary to know different customs in different countries?
71. When can you enter the room if you visit a friend in China?
72. In which country do you have to take off your shoes when you enter your host’s house?

The way that people all over the world watch films has changed these years. People don’t just go to the films any more. They take the films home! The VCR (录像机), has made this possible, and it has helped change people’s lives.
VCRs make it possible for us to watch films at home instead of the cinema. People can just go to a video store near their houses, rent (租) one or more films for a day or a weekend, and watch them in their own homes. They cost just a few dollars each day. Many different films are on videotape, from exciting films to interesting plays.
Watching a film at home can be very easy, and a lot cheaper. VCR owners can make snacks (零食) and sit back and enjoy a film with family and friends. They can stop the film to make more snacks, answer the phone, or take care of the baby. There are no lines to stand in, no tickets to buy, and no uncomfortable (不舒适的) cinema seats.
74. What has changed people’s way of watching films?
75. How do people usually get videotapes to watch
films at home?
76. Is it expensive to rent a videotape for one day?
77. What does the writer prefer, watching video films at home or seeing films at the cinema?
