That cold January night, I was growing sick of my life in San Francisco. There I was, walking home at one in the morning after a tiring practice at the theater. With opening night only a week away, I was still learning my lines. I was having trouble dealing with my part-time job at the bank and my acting at night at the same time. As I walked, I thought seriously about giving up both acting and San Francisco. City life had become too much for me.
As I walked down empty streets under tall buildings, I felt very small and cold. I began running, both to keep warm and to keep away from any possible robbers（抢劫犯）. Very few people were still out except a few sad-looking homeless people under blankets.
About a block from my apartment（公寓房间）, I heard a sound behind me. I turned quickly, half expecting to see someone with a knife or a gun. The street was empty. All I saw was a shining streetlight. Still, the noise had made me nervous, so I started to run faster. Not untill I reached my apartment building and unlocked the door did I realize what the noise had been. It had been my wallet falling to the sidewalk.
Suddenly I wasn’t cold or tired anymore. I ran out of the door and back to where I’d heard the noise. Although I searched the sidewalk anxiously for fifteen minutes, my wallet was nowhere to be found.
Just as I was about to give up the search, I heard the garbage truck（垃圾车）pull up to the sidewalk next to me. When a voice called from the inside, “Alisa Camacho? ” I thought I was
dreaming. How could this man know my name? The door opened, and out jumped a small red-haired man with an amused look in his eyes. “Is this what you’re looking for? ”he asked , holding up a small square shape.
It was nearly 3 A.M. by the time I got into bed. I wouldn’t get much sleep that night, but I had gotten my wallet back. I also had gotten back some enjoyment of city life. I realized that the city couldn’t be a bad place as long as people were willing to help each other.

These days a green building means more than just the colour of the paint. Green building can also refer to environmentally friendly houses, factories, and offices.
Green building means “ reducing the impact（影响）of the building on the land”, Taryn Holowka of the U.S. Green Building Council in Washington, D.C., said.
According to Holowka, buildings account for（占了）65 percent of total U.S. electricity use.
But green buildings can reduce energy and water use. Also, the buildings are often located near public transportation such as buses and subways, so that people can drive their cars less. That could be good for the environment, because cars use lots of gas and give off pollution. Green buildings are often built on developed land, so that the buildings don’t destroy forests.
Marty Dettling is project manager for a building that put these ideas into action. The solaire has been called the country’s first green high-rise building. According to Dettling, “We’ve reduced energy use by one-third and our water by 50 percent.”
The Solaire cuts energy in part by using solar power. “ On the face of the building we have solar panels which change the sun’s energy into electricity, ” Dettling explained.
The Solaire also has lights that automatically turn off when people leave the room. In addition, the building has lots of windows, allowing people to use the sun for light during the day. The Solaire cuts water by reusing it.
Not everyone is eager to move into a green building, however, some people think that things like solar panels cost more money than traditional energy sources. Anyhow, Holowka said, “ It’s going to be big. ”
61. In the second paragraph, the underlined words “the buildling” most probably refer to_______.
A. an ordinary building B. an energy-saving building
C. a green-colored building D. a building in Washington, D.C.
62. A green building is often built on an area of land________.
A.which has thick forests around
B.which has already been used for buildings.
C.where people of high income live
D.where traveling around by car is most convenient
63. When Holowka says in the last paragraph, “It’s going to be big”, she means that green buildings_______.
A. will be more comfortable B. will become popular in the future
C. will be more environmentally D. will take the place of traditional buildings
64.What is the main subject discussed in the text?
A. Dettling desighed the first green building in the U.S.
B. Energy shortage calls for buildings of new design.
C. Green buildings help save environment.
D. The Solaire serves as a model of high buildings.

We live in a technological society where most goods are mass-produced by unskilled labor. Because of this, most people think that craft（手工艺） no longer exists。
One of the ways these people wrongly support their view is by pointing to 100-year-old homes which are still solid, and arguing that it is the craftmanship that is responsible for their durability（持久性）. “ Homes in those days were well-built,” they say. No doubt these homes were well-built, but what these people have done is mix up the quality of material used in the house with the quality of the craftmanship.
Homes today could be built to last just as long as those old home if people were willing or able to pay the price. For example, most people can no longer afford solid oak stairways, although they were once fairly common in older homes. Nor can they afford the high cost of employing a carpenter（木匠） to build the stairway. Yet if someone can pay the high cost, there are still plenty of carpenters around able to make those stairways. And not only would these carpenters know how to build them, they would probably do a better job than carpenters of old.
One thing the modern carpenter has which enables him to do a better job is much more advanced tools. Such tools as laser beams and powerplanes help them lay out a house better and make more precision cuts(精确切割) on the wood. Also, it is not uncommon any more to find carpenters with college degrees and carpenters with a solid knowledge of mathematics, which would enable them to deal with more difficult house designs.
The problem of modern quality, then, really boils down to the problem of material, for the modern carpenter is just as able to produce craftmanship as the carpenter of fifty years ago, but only if given proper material.
68. Compared to the carpenters in the past, modern carpenters are _________.
A. more successful B. more learned C. more imaginative D. more hardworking
69. What does the underlined word “they ”(paragraph 2) refer to?
A. Carpenters who are fond of oak stairways.
B. Carpenters who have college degrees.
C. People who think highly of carpenters of old.
D. People who think that modern material is of low quality.
70. What does the third paragraph mainly discuss?
A. People in the past preferred to use oak to build stairways.
B. It is now expensive to employ a carpenter.
C. Modern houses last as long as the old ones.
D. Good carpenters still exist in modern times.
71. What would be the best title for the text?
A. Is Craft Dead? B. Craft, Back to Life?
C. History of Craftmanship D. Carpenters Today and Yesterday
It was an early September day, cool and bright and just right for running, and I was in the first few miles of a 10-mile race over a course(路线) with a few high hills. Still, I felt energetic; despite the hills it was going to be a fine run.
Just ahead of me was Peggy Mimno, a teacher from Mount Kisco, New York. She too was running easily, moving along at my speed. The pace (步速) felt comfortable, so I decided to stay where I was; why pay attetion to pace when she was setting such a nice one? I’d overtake(追上) her later on when she tired.
So I ran behind her. The course headed north for five miles, wandered west for a hilly mile, then turned south again along a winding road. The race was getting harder. We had four miles left and already it was beginning to be real work.
Peggy overtook a young runner. She seemed to know him, for they exchanged a few cheerful words as she passed him. Their exchange worried me. You don’t chat during a race unless you are feeling good, and Peggy plainly was.
Still, I was close enough to overtake her if she tired, so I didn’t give up hope completely. We were getting nearer to a long, punishing hill now and it would be the best. We were a mile from the finish line, so whatever happened on the hill would almost certainly determine who crossed it first.
As I moved up the hill, my attention wandered for a few minutes. When I looked up, Peggy was moving away—first five yards, then ten, then more. Finally it was clear that there was no hope of catching her. She beat me soundly.
There is an important lesson in that race. Women are thought to be weaker, slower and not nearly as skilled in sport. Yet as Peggy Mimno so clearly showed, the similarities between men and women runners are more important than the differences. I have run with a number of women, and I can say that it is often hard work.
72. What did the writer think of the race in the beginning?
A. It would be hard work B. It would be an easy race
C. It would be a test of his strength D. It would be a good learning experience.
73. What worried the writer when Peggy greeted the young runner?
A. Peggy overtook the young runner. B. Peggy was running energetically.
C. Peggy was laughing at the writer D. Peggy paid no attetion to the writer
74. By saying “a long, punishing hill”(paragraph 5), the writer implies that________.
A. Peggy would fail to reach the hilltop B. men are more skilled at climbing hills
C. overtaking Peggy would be easy D. climbing the hill would be a demanding task
75. What lesson does the writer learn from the race?
A. Women are as good as men in sport.
B. Women are better at climbing hills.
C. He should have more training in a cross-country race.
D. He should set a quicker pace at the beginning of a race.
