                                    A

    I’ve often wondered if I might do better as a travel agent rather than as a 

psychologist. It seems that I have been more dramatically affected by certain 

kinds of travel experiences than I ever have.

   My trip to Iceland is a fine example of that.The plan was to spend two days in 

a remote mountain hut in Iceland.I was working on a photographic book about 

winter in Iceland and needed to capture images of this amazing region of high 

mountain peaks,smoky volcanoes,and lakes with floating icebergs.

   The moment after we arrived,the weather turned extreme making visibility 

impossible.It snowed so much and the wind blew so hard that we couldn’t leave 

the tiny hut.To stay warm,we walked around in circles much of the day inside the 

tiny hut.We tried to call for help but the radio did not work. Day after day,we 

watched our supplies of food and fuel grow dangerously short.We got acute cabin 

fever(幽居病)and started going for walks and ski expeditions outside.Even when 

the weather finally broke,nobody came to get us even though it was three days 

beyond our scheduled pickup.By the time the rescue team came to pull us out,we 

had all given up hope.

   From then on,the world looks different to me,as does my life.It would have 

taken me years of psychotherapy to get to the same point.

   Almost everyone has a story to tell,and interestingly,most of these 

experiences were not altogether pleasant at the time.In fact,it appears that the 

most constructive life-changing journeys were those that involved some sorts of 

awful and uncomfortable events that forced the person to develop new 

resources,increase confidence,and solve problems in new ways.

   Cool temperatures, golden colors of autumn and dramatic events are just three 

reasons to visit Oregon’s Washington County this fall. The season brings a 

large number of places to see and things to do. We’ve collected some of the 

best reasons why you should plan a trip here in the coming months.

 It’s a Harvest Season

   Autumn marks the height of the agricultural season, which not only means a 

variety of autumn fruits and vegetables at the farmers’ markets, but also means 

that the season is heating up with fun, family farm events. Three apple 
                  中国现代教育网      www.30edu.com  全国最大教师交流平台

festivals this fall will celebrate the diversity and deliciousness of Oregon-

grown apples.

 The Colors Are Chang ing

   On a cool, autumn day, the rural, agricultural and forested scenery of 

Oregon’s Washington County comes alive with bright red, orange and yellow 

leaves --- a stark contrast to the deep, dark green of the trees that share 

these landscapes.

 Bird Migration Season Is in High Season

   September and October are busy months for bird watchers. Migratory and native 

birds call Washington County “home”, whether it’s for the winter or they’re 

just visiting on their southern voyage.

 Wine Harvest Season Brings Signature Tasting Events

   Celebrate the splendor of Oregon wine at two of the region’s biggest wine 

events, w hich happen annually in the fall. The North Willamette Harvest Trail 

and Grand Tasting is a full-day guided bus tour to three wineries featuring 

hands-on experiences, vineyard exploration, a wine country lunch, and wine 

tastings.

 Experience Tree-to-Tree Adventures at Sunset

   Enjoy the crisp temperatures and rich colors of the season at Tree to Tree 

Adventure Park, an aerial ropes course with six challenging courses and zip-line 

park, all rolled into one. These are the final months to enjoy this fun and 

exciting attraction until it closes for the season in November.

                                      C

   Jeanne Clamant, a French woman, became a record breaker on 17 October of 1995, 

when at the age of 120 years and 238 days, she became the longest-lived human 

being on record. A Japanese man died in 1986 at the age of 120 years and 237 

days. 

   Jeanne Clamant lives in a small old people’s home in the south of France; her 

husband, her only child and her grandson have all died. She is nearly blind and 

deaf and is always in a wheelchair, but her doctor describes her as being more 

like a 90-year-old in good health than someone of 120. She still has a lively 

sense of humor. When asked on her 120th birthday what she expected of the future, 

she replied: A very short one. She also remarked that she thought the good Lord 

had forgotten all about her.

   So what is the key to a long life? According to some doctors, diet, exercise 

and no smoking are the three important factors. Jeanne Clamant has followed two 

of the tips(窍门). She has always eaten a healthy diet, and she used to do 

exercises every day until she broke her leg at the age of 115. However, until 

recently she drank two glassed of strong red wine a day, and she does smoke (now 

only a little). Besides, Jeanne Clamant might have got very good genes(基因) 

from her parents. Her father lived to the age of 94 and her mother to 86.

   A local lawyer bought her house when she was 80 under an agreement that he 

would pay her some m oney every year until her death. It must have seemed a good 
                  中国现代教育网      www.30edu.com  全国最大教师交流平台

move at the time, but so far the lawyer has paid her at least three times the 

value of the house. Every year on her birthday Jeanne Clamant sends him a card 

saying:

    Sorry, I’m still alive!   

 28. How does Jeanne Calment feel about her old age?  

 A. She is miserable and unhappy.  B. She is cheerful and humorous.  

 C. She would like to live much longer.  D. She feels she is going to die very 

soon.   

 29. Jeanne Calment owes her good health and long life to _______. 

  A. smoking only a little every day 

  B. her giving up smoking and drinking  

  C. drinking two glasses of strong red wine every day 

  D. the good genes from her parents, a healthy diet and some exercises  

 30. Which of the following could best replace the word “move” in the fourth 

paragraph?   

 A. deal   B. trick   C. march   D. sport   

 31. Why does Jeanne Calment say “Sorry, I‟m still alive” to the local lawyer 

every year on her     birthday? 

  A. Because she had an agreement at 80 with the lawyer which was to her 

advantage. 

  B. Because she has asked the lawyer to pay her more rent than they first agreed.  


  C. Because the lawyer has paid her much more money than the value of the house.

  D. Because the house she sold to the lawyer isn’t worth the money he has 

already paid. 

 D

    Can you believe your eyes? A recent experiment suggests that the answer to 

that question may depend on your age.

    Martin Doherty, a psychologist at the University of Stirlin g in Scotland, 

led the team of scientists. In this experiment, Doherty and his team tested the 
                  中国现代教育网      www.30edu.com  全国最大教师交流平台

perception(观察力) of some people, using pictures of some orange circles. The 

researchers showed the same pictures to two groups of people. The first group 

included 151 children aged 4 to 10, and the second group included 24 adults aged 

18 to 25.

    The first group of pictures showed two circles alone on a white background. 

One of the circles was larger than the other, and these people were asked to 

identify the larger one. Four-year-olds identified the correct circle 79 percent 

of the time. Adults identified the correct circle 95 percent of the time.

    Ne xt, both groups were shown a picture where the orange circles, again of 

different sizes, were surrounded by gray circles. Here’s where the trick lies 

in. In some of the pictures, the smaller orange circle was surrounded by even 

smaller gray circles — making the orange circle appear larger than the other 

orange circle, which was the real larger one. And the larger orange circle was 

surrounded by even bigger gray circles — so it appeared to be smaller than the 

real smaller orange circle.

    When young children aged 4 to 6 looked at these tricky pictures, they 

weren’t fooled—they were still able to find the bigger circle with roughly the 

same accuracy as before. Older children and adults, on the other hand, did not 

do as well. Older children often identified the smaller circle as the larger one, 

and adults got it wrong most of the time.

    As children get older, Doherty said, their brains may develop the abili ty to 

identify visual context(视觉语境). In other words, they will begin to process 

the whole picture at once: the tricky gray circles, as well as the orange circle 

in the middle. As a result, they’re more likely to fall for this kind of visual 

trick.

 32. Doherty and his team of scientists did an experiment to evaluate________.

 A. children’s and adults’ eye-sight

 B. people’s ability to see accurately

 C. children’s and adults’ brains

 D. the influence of people’s age
                  中国现代教育网      www.30edu.com  全国最大教师交流平台

 33. When asked to find the larger circle,________.

 A. children at 6 got it wrong 79 % of the time with no gray ones around

 B. only adults over 18 got it right 95% of the time with gray ones around

 C. children at 4 got it right about 79 % of the time with gray ones around

 D. adults got it right most of the time with gray ones around

 34. According to the passage, we can know that________.

 A. a smaller orange circle appears bigger on a white background

 B. an orange circle appears bigger than a gray one of the same size

 C. a circle surrounded by other circles looks bigger than its real size

 D. a circle surrounded by bigger ones looks smaller than its real size

 35. Visual context may work when children get older than________.

 A. 4              B. 6             C. 10             D. 18

    “Are you going shopping today?” my husband, Roy, asked when I answered the 
telephone. “I    41  to,” I said. Thanksgiving was only a couple days away. 
My money was  42   and I knew I had to be creative in my shopping that day.
    For a few seconds, Roy sat   43   on the other end of the line. The 
nervousness gradually increased under the wordlessness, which I couldn’t wait 
to break through. “Why do you ask?” I whispered,   44   what he might say.
    “Nancy, there’s a family with six kids that will not have anything to   45   
for Thanksgiving. The little one is only five years old. While you’re at the 
store could you   46  buy something for them?” My head began to spin  when I was 
thinking about the fifty dollars I had   47    for our family’s Thanksgiving 
dinner.
    In the back of my mind I   48   the hungry guests who would be coming to our 
house for dinner. I put my head down on my desk, already feeling   49  . 
There’s no way possible, I thought. But the compassion (怜悯) I heard in my 

husband’s   50   struck a nerve inside me.
    I replied, “  51   but only if God helps.”

       I finished my work and   52   all the way to the nearest grocery store. I 
   entered the parking lot and noticed a big   53   in the grocery store window: 
   Turkeys---29 cents a pound. “Thank God!” I said to myself. 
       I went inside, but when I read the sign my heart   54  . “Limit one.” But 
   I needed at least two so I decided to find the manager. I   55   the problem. He 
   made an exception. To my   56  , I had enough money. I was even able to purchase 
   a package of cookies for the five-year-old child who had   57   my heart, even 
   though I had never met her.
       Later that afternoon, Roy and I made a special delivery to a home   58
