Last summer I went to Miami Beach, Florida, where I stayed for two weeks. My friend John and I flew to Miami from New York in three hours. It was the first time for both of us to travel by air. We settled back in deep armchairs and enjoyed an unusual and breathtaking (使人吃惊的，非凡的) view (视野，景色) of the world. We went there because the rates were lower (较低的，降低) out of season. We stayed at a hotel on the beach. We slept late every morning and then had breakfast outdoors near the pool. When the weather was not too hot, we used to go sightseeing (观光，游览) in the morning. We visited the campus (校园) of the University of Miami, and the Everglades. In the afternoon, we used to go swimming in the ocean or the pool, lie in the sun, or go water-skiing. After dinner in the evening, we used to go dancing in a discotheque or enjoy ourselves in the night clubs. The weather was very good every day, and the two weeks went by only too quickly. We were both very sorry when we had to leave.

A United Nations' report says Asian countries are facing major environmental problems. The report released in Bangkok said that parts of China, India, Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan are threatened by man-made and natural events that turn productive (有收获的) land into deserts. It said the most serious threat to the area is the rapid shrinking of Asia's rain forests, or woods, especially in Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand. The report said the reduction (减少) in wood areas has already led to increased flooding, water-shortages in the dry seasons and the loss of farm lands. A top U.N. official said that as much as 70% of the woods in Asia will be gone in 20 years unless actions are taken now to save them.

Now, you want to know about life in the past. Right? I can tell you. When I was a boy, things were different. I had to get up at six every morning. That was not very bad in summer, but in winter it was cold. And we didn't have any hot water in the house. We had to wash in cold water. We didn't have a bathroom. My dad had some chickens. I had to feed them every morning and then I had to walk to school with my little sister. It was two miles to school and two miles back in the evening. But it always seemed longer in the morning when we were going to school. There was a bus, but we didn't have the money. And we had to go to bed at seven o'clock every night. We couldn't watch TV because there wasn't any. On Sundays we had to go to church three times — morning, afternoon and evening. And we couldn't play outside on Sundays. But it wasn't all bad. We had some good times. We could go out and our parents didn't have to worry about us. There weren't so many cars on the roads then, so the streets were safe to play in. And there were not many robbers and thieves in those days. We had to work hard and we weren't able to buy all those things in the shops today. Life was hard, but it was simple and people were happier. I don't think I'd like to be young today.

Before 1883, most cities in the United States had their own time. They set their time by the sun. This made many problems for the railroad companies. Their trains went to more than 300 different cities. Every city had a different time. In 1883 Willia Allan made a plan to divide the United States into four different parts called time zones. This made things easier for the railroad companies. Now every city in the same time zone has the same time. The map shows the time zones. They are Pacific (太平洋的) Standard Time (PST), Mountains Standard Time (MST), Central Standard Time (CST) and Eastern Standard Time (EST). The clocks below the map tell the time in each zone.

Good sense is the most equitably distributed thing in the world, for each man considers himself so well provided with it that even those who are most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually wish to have more of it than they have already. It is not likely that everyone is mistaken in this; it shows, rather, that the ability to judge rightly and separate the true from the false, which is essentially what is called good sense or reason, is by nature equal in all men, and thus that our opinions differ not because some men are better provided with reason than others, but only because we direct our thoughts along different paths, and do not consider the same things. For it is not enough to have a good mind; what is most important is to apply it rightly. The greatest souls are capable of the greatest evils, and those who walk very slowly can advance much further, if they always keep to the direct road, than those who run and go astray. And I know of no other qualities than these which make for the perfection of the mind; for as to reason, or good sense, because it alone makes us men and distinguishes us from the beasts, I am quite willing to believe that it is whole and entire in each of us.

different from man to man
given by nature to all creatures
more heavily present in some persons than in others
given equally to all persons

the power to understand
good hearing, sight and smelling
the power to deduce

The Winter Olympics is also called the White Olympics. At this time many colourful stamps are published to mark the great games. The first stamps marking the opening came out on January 25, 1932 in the United States for the 3rd White Olympics. From then on, publishing stamps during the White Olympics became a rule.
During the 4th Winter Olympic Games a group of stamps were published in Germany in November, 1935. The five rings of Olympics were printed on the front of the sportswear. It was the first time that the symbol (标志) appeared on the stamps of the White Olympics.
In the 1950's, the stamps of this kind became more colourful when the White Olympics came, the host countries (东道国) as well as the non-host countries published stamps to mark those Games.
China also published four stamps in February, 1980, when the Chinese sportsmen began to march into the area of the White Olympics. Japan is the only Asian country that has ever held the White Olympics. Altogether 14,500 million stamps were sold to raise money for this sports meet.

Sometimes, when people first see an automobile factory, they think it has no form. It is so big that it is impossible to see the design of the whole plant. In fact, the factory has been very carefully designed, so that it can be as efficient as possible.
There is not just one assembly line in the factory; there are several. On the main one, the chassis (车架) of the car is put together. The chassis is the frame on which the rest of the car is built. In another part of the factory, the body of the car is stamped out on sheets of steel. The body is painted, and then the two assembly lines come together. The body is lowered onto the chassis and fitted to it.
Meanwhile, in still another part of the factory, the engine is being put together on another assembly line. The central part of the engine is called the block, and the various other parts of the engine are fitted to it by different workers as it passes down the line. An internal combustion engine is a complicated piece of machinery, and this work must be done with great care. A piece which does not fit properly, or which is badly made, may spoil the engine.
When the engine is completed, the assembly line on which it has been put together joins the main one, where the chassis and the body have been fitted together. The engine is then placed in the car. After final adjustments have been made, the car can be rolled off the end of the assembly line to a parking lot, where it awaits shipment to the dealer who will sell it to the customer.
The automobile, a complicated machine with hundreds of different parts, is made quickly and efficiently by using the assembly line technique to its fullest extent.
68.The passage is mainly about .
how a car is designed
how a car is made
the assembly line technique in a car factory
how complicated a car is

There are usually three assembly lines in a car factory.
The car factory is too big to be designed.
The assembly lines enable the workers to make cars quickly.
70.The main assembly line is responsible for
the final adjustments
the central part of the engine
71.After it is made, the car .
will be kept in the parking lot for shipment
will be shipped to the dealer

Started in 1636, Harvard University is the oldest of all the colleges and universities in the United States. Yale, Princeton, and Dartrnouth were opened soon after Harvard. They were all started before the American Revolution made the thirteen colonies (殖民地) into states.
In the early years, these schools were much alike (相似的). Only young men attended college. All the students studied the same sujects and everyone learned Latin (拉丁的，拉丁语) and Greek (希腊语). Little was known about science then, and one kind of school could teach everything that was known about the world. When the students graduated, most of them became ministers or teachers.
In 1782, Harvard started a medical school for young men who wanted to become doctors. Later, lawyers could receive their training in Harvard law school. In 1825, Harvard began teaching modern languages, such as French and German, as well as Latin and Greek. Soon it began teaching American history.
As knowledge increased, Harvard and other colleges began to teach many new subjects. Students were allowed to choose the subjects that interested them.
Special colleges for women were started. New state universities began to teach such subjects as farming, engineering and business. Today, there are many different kinds of colleges and universities. Most of them are divided into smaller schools that deal with special fields of learning. There is so much to learn that one kind of school cannot offer it all.

all the colleges and universities are the same
today all students study to become teachers or ministers
various kinds of colleges and universities have been set up to meet the need of the students
all the colleges and universities have become smaller than before.
