WASHINGTON—There are more than 222million TVs in American homes . And it would make Frank Vespe very happy this week if every last one was turned off. Vespe is the head of the TV—Turnoff Net —work , the Washington organization behind TV Turnoff Week . For TV Turnoff week, American children are encouraged to go one week without watching TV. This year, it runs from April 23~29. “Our real message here is to see what life is like without TV and then make watching TV a conscious (自觉的)decision ,” said Vespe. Vespe said that most of the children who go without television for a week go back to watching, but not as much. “They watch more selectively. They do more things as a family. It helps them put TV in its place.” One girl who is turning off her TV is Sarah Foote, 9, of Virginia. Sarch admits that it won’t be too hard to give up TV. She’s allowed to watch only educational television, and her favorite show from last year isn’t on any more. Of course, there are plenty of things about TV: programs can be entertaining, even educational. Even so, some experts aren’t sure TV Turnoff Week is the answer. Susan Neuman, a university educator who studies children and reading, says the real problem is that parents do not keep track of what their children are watching. They don’t set limits on TV watching. Also, in some families, TV might be the only thing there is to do. What message does Sarah have for other children? “It’s a very good idea. I spent a whole week without TV. It also teaches you to enjoy time doing different things and not being sucked into something on TV, because you don’t want TV taking up all of your time,” Sarah said. 46.

To praise Vespe and his organization . C Do you find getting up in the morning so difficult that it’s painful? This might be called laziness, but Dr. Kleitman has a new explanation. He has proved that everyone has a daily energy cycle. During the hours when you labour through your work, you may say that you’re “hot”. That’s true. The time of day when you feel most energetic is when your cycle of body temperature is at its peak. For some people that peak comes during the forenoon. For others it comes in the afternoon or evening. No one has discovered why this is so, but it leads to such familiar monologues (自言自语)as “Get up , John ! You’ll be late for work again !” The possible explanation to the trouble is that John is at his temperature—and —energy peak in the evening. Much family quarrelling ends when husbands and wives realize what these energy cycles mean, and which cycle each member of the family has. You can’t change your energy cycle, but you can make your life fit it better. Habit can help. Dr. Kleitman believes. Maybe you’re sleepy in the evening but feel you must stay up late anyway. Counteract (打乱) your cycle to some extent by habitually staying up later than you want to . If your energy is low in the morning but you have an important job to do early in the day, rise before your usual hour. This won’t change your cycle , but you’ll get up steam and work better at your low point . Get off to a slow start which saves your energy. Get up with a yawn (呵欠)and stretch . Sit on the edge of the bed a minute before putting your feet on the floor. Avoid the troublesome search for clean clothes by laying them out the night before. Whenever possible, do routine (常规的)work in

the afternoon and save tasks requiring more energy for your sharper hours . 54. Which of the following causes family quarrels? A. Not knowing each other’s energy cycle. B. Familiar monologues. C. A change in a family member’s energy cycle. D. Attempts to control the energy of other family members 55.

What’s the best title of the passage? A. Change Your Habits C. Daily Energy Cycle E B. Save Your Energy

Beijing has started a battle to get rid of “Chinglish” (Chinese English). The “Language mandarins” of Beijing have decided that Chinglish is a disease for China’s modernizing claim and must be obliterated before the city hosts the Olympic Games in 2008. A road sign on the Avenue of Eternal Peace (Chang’an Street), for example, advised: “To Take Notice of Safe; The Slippery are Very Crafty,”a warning that the sidewalk was slippery. Another sign in a Beijing park reads: “Little grass is smiling slightly, please walk on sidewalk “. Li Honghai, the city official in charge of the battle , said : “Linguistic perfection (语言美)is becoming increasingly important with the rise in the number of the foreigners flowing into the city .” However, not everyone shares the disdain (蔑视)of the Beijing government for the mixed language. “The choice of words is pretty much. One can either choose the verbs, adverbs, nouns or whatever one likes,” explained one Hong Kong linguist on an Internet website. So many examples exist that several Internet sites have been set up to collect Chinglish phrases. Many come from English instructions on packages such as a candle marked with “Keep this candle out of children” and a model boat—curiously named Posh Sailboat—which means “Please don’t place

it in dusty play .” If the battle against Chinglish is successful, Chinese will also turn their attention to the English— language versions of newspapers, which play an even more important role in teaching right English. 62. The underlined word “obliterated” refers to A. removed B. exploited . . C. translated D. beautified

63. From the passage, we know that

A. everyone shares the disdain for the mixed language B. all the people don’t share the disdain for the mixed language C.

We can infer that the English—language versions of newspapers A. should be in duty to teach normal English C. should be paid more attention to 65. Which of the following signs is Chinglish? A Watch your step. Slippery sidewalk. Tourists do not enter . B Keep off the grass, please. No smoking , please . .

B. should report the battle above D. should collect more Chinglish phrases
