they say ireland’s the best
ireland is the best place in the world to live in for 2005, according to a life quality ranking that appeared in britain’s economist magazine 1ast week.
the ambitious attempt to compare happiness levels around the world is based on the principle that wealth is not the only measure of human satisfaction and well-being．
the index of 111 countries uses data on incomes，health，unemployment，climate，political stability, job security, gender equality as well as what the magazine calls“freedom，family and community life”．
despite the bad weather, troubled health service，traffic congestion(拥挤)，gender inequality, and the high cost of living．ireland scored an impressive 8.33 points out of 10．
that put it well ahead of second-place switzerland，which managed 8.07．zimbabwe, troubled by political insecurity and hunger，is rated the gloomiest(最差的)，picking up only 3. 89points.
“although rising incomes and increased individual choices are highly valued，”the report said,“some of the factors associated with modernization such as the breakdown(崩溃)in traditional institutions and family values in part take away from a positive impact．”
“ireland wins because it successfully combines the most desirable elements of the new with the preservation of certain warm elements of the old，such as stable family and community 1ife.”
the magazine admitted measuring quality of life is not a straightforward thing to do, and that its findings would have their critics.
no.2 on the list is switzerland．the other nations in the top 10 are norway，luxembourg，
sweden，australia，iceland，italy，denmark and spain．
the uk is positioned at no.29，a much lower position chiefly because of the social and family breakdown recorded in official statistics．the us, which has the second highest per capita gdp(人均国内生产总值)after luxembourg，took the 13th place in the survey．china was in the lower half of the league at 60th．
16 for 2,005 years，ireland has been the best place for humans to live in.

estee lauder died
1 the child of central european immigrants who created an international cosmetics(化妆品)empire and became one of the most influential women in us，has died on saturday. estee lauder died at her home in manhattan，new york city，a company spokeswoman said．she was 97.
2 born in queens, new york in 1908, lauder was the daughter of a hungarian mother and a czech father．
3 lauder began her business career by selling skincare products developed by her uncle john schotz，a chemist，to beauty salons(美容院)and hotels. in 1930，she married joseph lauder who became her partner. the company, which became known as estee lauder，took off after world war ii．
4 in 1953，the company introduced its first perfume(香水)，youth dew，the first of a range of fragrances that has now grown to more than 70．they include：aramis，a line of products for men，launched in 1964；and clinique，a range of odourless(无嗅的)cosmetics, which followed in 1968.
5 by the time she retired in 1995，lauder was presiding over a multibillion-dollar enterprise,
which now ranks number 349 in the fortune 500 list of largest us companies．in 1998, she was
the only woman to feature in time magazine’s selection of the 20 most important business geniuses of the last century．there were two secrets to her success: her gift for selling things and her tireless energy and determination never to accept second best.
6 even after her retirement at the age of 89，lauder remained closely involved．beauty, lauder believed，was the most important thing in life．
7 she wrote in her 1985 autobiography,“estee，a success story”：“in a perfect world, we’d all be judged on the sweetness of our souls . but in our less than perfect world, the woman who looks pretty has a distinct advantage and，usually，the last word．”
storms sink ships
rescuers have found the bodies of over 130 people killed in two ferry disasters in bangladesh．the accidents happened during a storm that hit the country on april 21．hundreds more are missing or feared dead．
the two ferries sank in different rivers near the capital city of dhaka as strong winds and rain hit the south asian country.
the government has since banned a11 ferries and other boats from travelling at night during the april-may stormy season.
one of the ferries, mv mitali，was carrying far more people than it was supposed to．about 400 passengers fitted into a space made for just 300，police said the second ferry carried about 100 passengers．
“the number of deaths is certain to rise,”said an official in charge of the rescue work.“no one really knows how many people were on board the ferry or how many of them survived．”
ferries in bangladesh don’t always keep passenger lists，making it difficult to determine the exact number of people on board.
besides the ferry accidents，at least 40 people were killed and 400 injured by lightning strikes, falling houses and trees and the sinking of small boats．
storms are common this time of year in bangladesh, as are boating accidents．ferry disasters take away hundreds of lives every year in a nation of 130 million people．
officials blame these river accidents on a lack of safety measures, too many passengers in boats and not enough checks on weather conditions.
ferries are a common means of transport in bangladesh．it is a country covered by about 230 rivers．some 20,000 ferries use the nation’s waterways(水路)every year．and many of them are dangerously overcrowded(过度拥挤)．
since1977, more than 3,000 people have died in some 260 boating accidents．
31 how many people have been found dead in the two ferry disasters?
a more than 130.
b over 3,000．
d at least 40.
32 the two ferry disasters occurred
a at noon．
b in the morning.
c at night．
d in the afternoon．
33 how many passengers was mv mitali designed to carry?
34 which of the following is not mentioned as a cause of the boating accidents?
a strong winds．
b bad weather conditions．
c blockage of waterways．
d lack of safety measures.
35 which of the following statements is not true of the two ferry disasters?a they traveled during the april-may stormy season.
b they sank on april 21.
c the exact number of deaths could be easily determined．
d they sank somewhere near dhaka．
where you save your money often depends on what you are saving for．if you are saving to buy a dictionary or to go to a concert，then probably keep your money somewhere in your room．
if you are saving for a big purchase like a mountain bike or a school trip, where would you
save your money?
one place to save money is the bank．putting your money in a savings account will help your money earn more money．if you put your money in a piggy bank(猪形储蓄罐)，one year later you’ll still have the same amount of money you put in．if you put your money in a savings account，one year later，you’ll have more money than you put in．why?
when you keep your money in a bank，your money earns interest．interest is the amount of
money a bank pays you to use your money. the bank uses your money(and the money of other people，too)to loan money to people and businesses．
the bank will send you a statement several times a year．a bank statement tells you how much money there is in your account，it also tells you how much interest you have earned．if you leave your money in the bank，you can watch it grow!
another way you can save money is to buy a certificate of deposit or cd. if you have some
money that you don’t need to use for a long time，this is a good way to make your money grow．
you can buy a cd at a bank．you agree not to use the money for a certain period of time．
that period might be from six months to five years you can’t touch your money during that time.
if you do，you must pay a penalty，or fee.
since the bank is using your money for that time period，it will pay you interest．you will
earn more interest with a cd than in a savings account．can you guess why? it’s because you promise to leave your money in the bank for a certain period of time. banks pay different rates of interest. so, you may want to compare rates in newspaper ads before buying a cd．
36 which way will help your money earn more money?
a putting your money in your room.
b putting your money in a piggy bank.
c putting your money in your pocket．
d putting your money in a savings account．
37 interest is the amount of money which
a a bank lends to people．
b a bank loans to businesses．
c a bank pays you．
d a bank uses.
38 a bank statement tells you
a the amount of money you have in the bank．
b the current rates of interest．
c the current rates of exchange．
d the best way to save your money．
39 if you draw your money before it is due．
a you have to pay interest to the bank．
b you have to close your account
c you have to open a new account．
d you have to pay a penalty or fee．
40 the word “touch” in paragraph 7 could be best replaced by
two people，two paths
you must be familiar with the situation：dad’s driving，mum’s telling him where to go．he’s sure that they need to turn left but she says it’s not for another two blocks．who has the better sense of direction? men or women.
they both do, a new study says．but in different ways．
men and women．canadian researchers have found，have different methods of finding their
way．men look quickly at landmarks(地标)and head off in what they think is the right direction．
women, however, try to picture the whole route in detail and then follow the path in their head．
“women tend to be more detailed,”said edward cornell．who led the study,“while men
tend to be a little bit faster and …a little bit more intuitive(直觉感知的)．”
in fact, said cornell,“sense of direction”isn’t one skill but two．
the first is the“survey method”.this is when you see all area from above, such as a printed map．y0u can see，for example，where the hospital is，where the church is and that the
supermarket is on its right．
the second skill is the“route method”this is when you use a series of directions．you start
from the hospital，then turn left，turn fight，go uphill——and then you see the supermarket．
men are more likely to use the survey method while women are more likely to use one route and follow directions．
both work, and neither is better．
some scientists insist that these different skills have a long history. they argue it is because of the difference in traditional roles.
in ancient times，young men often went far away with the older men to fish or hunt．the trip took hours or days and covered unfamiliar places．the only way to know where you were was to use the survey method to remember landmarks—the mountains, the lakes and so on． the women，on the other hand，took young girls out to find fruits and plants．these activities were much closer to home but required learning well-used paths．so, women’s sense of
space was based on learning certain routes．
41 when finding his way, dad tends to rely on
a his intuitive knowledge.
b his book knowledge．
c mum’s assistance.
d the police’s assistance．
42 women are more likely to use
a the survey method.
b the traditional method．
c the route method.
d the right method.
43 which works better，the route method or the survey method?
a the survey method．
b the route method．
44 which of the following is not a landmark?
a a long river．
b a high mountain．
c a magnificent church．
d a path in your head．
45 women developed a sense of space out of the need
a to go fishing．
b to go hunting.
c to learn well-used paths．
d to go swimming.
what would you see if you took a cruise to the caribbean islands? palm trees and coconuts
(椰子)? white beaches and clear，blue ocean? colorful corals(珊瑚)and even more colorful fishes and birds?
you bet．there are thousands of islands in the caribbean sea．they are famous for their warm，tropical climate and great natural beauty．
the caribbean islands form a chain that separates the caribbean sea from the rest of the atlantic ocean.______ (46)many of the islands were formed by the eruption(爆发)of ancient volcanoes(火山)．others are low-lying coral islands that gradually rose from the ocean.
the caribbean islands are known by several names.______(47)the explorer christopher columbus called the islands the indies in 1492 because he thought he was near the coast of india．later, spain and france called the islands the antilles．
there are four large islands in the caribbean sea．_______(48)these four islands are often called the greater antilles．together, they account for about 90 percent of the land area of the caribbean islands．
the rest of the caribbean islands are much smaller．______(49)you can see why pirates such as the famous blackbeard sailed these waters. there are countless small islands to bury treasure or hide on.
the weather of the caribbean sea is almost always warm and sunny．sandy beaches line the coasts of many islands.______(50)many tourists arrive on cruise ships．
a but life on the caribbean islands is not always paradise．
b the earliest name used by europeans is the indies，later changed to the west indies．
c they’re like a long necklace that stretches between north and south america．
d they are cuba，puerto rico，jamaica，and hispaniola.
e this is why millions of tourists visit the islands each year
f some of these islands are no more than tiny slivers(小片)of exposed coral．
something men do not like to do

1 c 题干中的sick是“生病的”。 i11也有此意。fat是“胖的”。the woman is fat．这个女人很胖。weak是“体弱”。the woman is weak．这个女人体弱。mad是“发疯的”。the woman is mad．这个女人发疯了。
2 a look for是“寻找”。它是活动动词，不一定有结果，进行体是它常见的形式。 find是在瞬间中能得到一个结果的动词。many people can not find work许多人找不到工作。find不适合用进行体。try to find是“试图找到”，也就是说，这种努力不一定有结果，因此在意义上跟“look for”近似。lookup是“查询”。we have to look up the meaning of this word in the dictionary．我们须查询一下词典，看看该词的意义。look at是“注视”。mary is looking at zhang san玛丽察看着张三。
3 b rarely：很少。seldom也有这个意思。she seldom shows her feelings．她很少流 露自己的感情。frequently：经常。she frequently attends academic meetings．她经常参加学术会议。usually：通常。influenza usually breaks out in winter,流感常在冬天爆发。normally：正常地。
4 c physician内科大夫；doctor：大夫。是内科大夫必然是大夫，因此用doctor替换physician对句子的意义没有太大的影响。researcher研究者；professor教授； student学生。
5 b branch：分支机构：枝。division也有分支机构的意义。tree树；root根；leaf 叶。
6 a get up：起床。rise也有这个意思。mary rises very early．玛丽起得很早。stand 站；arrive到达；come来。
7 c although：虽然。though也有此意， he works hard．虽然他老了，他仍然努力。都能引导让步状语从句。though he is old．because，since和for都不引导让步从句。
8 c make up one’s mind：下决心。decide也有这个意思。mary has decided not to go with us．玛丽已经决定不跟我们去。时：试图。mary will try to work harder．玛 丽会试图更努力。promise保证。you have to promise me that you won’t do that again你得保证以后不再干那种事。attempt：试图。this paper attempts to solve the problem from a different perspective．此论文试图从一个不同的角度解决这个问题。promise：许诺
9 d lots of：许多。many：许多。much：许多(修饰不可数名词)。her hairstyle hasn’t changed much．她的发型没有太大变化。large和big都是“大的”意思。
10 b pleased：高兴的。happy也是“高兴的”。she had a happy childhood．她的童年很幸福。sad：痛苦的。unwilling：不愿意的。
11 c obvious：显而易见的。clear：清楚的。it is not clear whether the incident was accidental or deliberate．还不清楚这一事件是意外的还是故意的。likely，possible 和probable都有“可能的”意思。
12 b around：周围。round也是这个意思。she has earned the respect of leaders all round the world她赢得了世界上所有领导人的尊敬。before在……以前；after 在……以后：over在……上面。
13 d anyone和anybody都是“任何人”的意思，可以互换。i won’t tell anybody that i saw you here我不会告诉任何人我在这儿见到了你。everyone每个人；someone 某人：nobody没有人。
14 d mend和repair都有“修理”的意思。zhang san repaired the roof to ensure me house is windproof张三修理了一下房顶，使得房子不进风。build：建设；destroy： 破坏：design：设计。
15 b follow此处有“理解”的意思。understand：懂，理解。this book is difficult to understand．此书难懂。observe观察；explain：解释：describe：描写。
16 b ireland is the best place in the world to live in for 2005…．爱尔兰是2005年世界上最适合居住的地方，……这是文章中的第一句话。题干说的是：在长达2005年里，爱尔兰一直是世界上最适合于人类居住的地方。因此，不对。
17 c 题干说的是：工作稳定是生活质量中最不重要的衡量标准。文章第三段提到工作稳定(job security)，但是没有说工作稳定是生活质量中最不重要的衡量标准。
18 a 题干说的是：在爱尔兰生活费用相当高。这一信息可以从第四段中的词组“the high cost of living”(很高的生活费用)中找到。
19 c 题干说的是：在津巴布韦，家庭生活不稳定。文章没有提到。
20 a 题干说的是：爱尔兰名居榜首是因为它把新时期的最佳的成分和一些好的传 统结合在一起。这一信息可以从第七段中找到。
21 b 题干说的是：评价生活质量很容易。第八段是这么说的：the magazine admitted measuring quality of life is not a straightforward thing to do．该杂志承认评价生活质量不是一件简单的事。因此，不对。
22 b 题干说的是：美国在前十名。事实是它排在第十三名。有关此信息可以在最后一段找到。第3部分：概括大意与完成句子
23 f birth(出生)。第二段是这么说的：lauder 1908年出生在纽约的昆斯区，她的母亲是匈牙利人，父亲是捷克人。
24 a early career(早年生涯)。第三段是这么说的：lander卖给美容院和宾馆她 叔叔john schotz开发的护肤产品开始了她的从商生涯。25 c products(产品)。第四段讲的都是化妆品。
26 e cosmetics empress(化妆品皇后)。第五段是讲lauder取得的巨大成就。
27 b regard须跟as搭配。regard…as…把……看成……lauder regarded beauty as
the most important thing in life lauder把美看成是生活中最重要的。28 a 有两个选项可以跟“died”搭配：in 1908；at the age of97。前者是她的生日，因此只可能是后者。另外，第～段的最后一句话也说得很清楚。
29 c 从24题的题解中我们知道，lauder开始是卖她叔叔john schotz开发的产品。formulated(配置)与developed(开发)在此处意思很相近。因此合适的选择是 “by john schotz”。
30 e interest后面跟in。in表示范围，因此“in cosmetics”是惟一可能的选择。另外，也可以参考第六段的第一句话。even after her retirement at the age of 89，lauder remained closely involved lauder在89岁退休后继续积极参与。
31 a 该题问的是：在两次渡船失事中已发现多少人死了?第一段第一个句子说到救援人员已经找到了在孟加拉国的两次渡船失事中的130多人的尸体”。当然， 实际的死亡数字还要高。
32 c 该题问的是：这两次渡船失事发生在什么时候?这是一道推理题。文章中没 有一个句子直接提供了这方面的信息。但是第三段间接地传递了这方面的信息： 政府自此后禁止所有的渡船和其他船只在四五月的暴风季节夜航。
33 d 该题问的是：渡船：mv mitali设计载客量是多少?答案在第四段的第二句：警察说：把大约400个旅客装进了只能容纳：300个旅客的空间。
34 c 该题问的是：哪一种原因文章没有提到?第三段提到了政府自此禁止渡船和其他船只在四五月暴风雨季节夜航。也就是说，a和b提到了。倒数第三段说到了缺乏安全措施，即d。
35 c 该题问的是：下面是有关这两次渡船失事的说法，哪一种是错的?第五段有这样一句话：没有人真正能知道当时有多少人在船上?也不知道多少人还活着?
36 d 该题问的是：哪一种方式能使你的钱越滚越多?把钱放在你的房间里、猪形储蓄罐里或你的口袋里显然都不会使你的钱变得更多。
37 c 该题问的是：利息是什么样的钱?a说的是：银行借出的钱。b说的是：银行贷款给工商企业的。d说的是：银行使用的钱。这么都不对。第四段有这样一句话：interest is the amount 0f money a bank pays you to use your money。利息是因为银行用了你的钱付给你的。因此c才是正确的答案。
38 a 该题问的是：银行结算单告诉你什么?a说的是：你在银行中有多少钱。b说的是：当前的利率。 c说的是：当前的兑换率。d说的是：存钱的最好办法。 a是正确的，答案在第五段。
39 d 该题问的是：你提前取钱会怎么样?答案在倒数第二段的最后一句。
40 c 该题问的是：第七段中的“touch”由哪个词替换最为合适?最为合适的是
4l a 该题问的是：找路时爸爸依赖的是什么?a说的是：他的直觉知识。b说的是：他的书本知识。c说的是：妈妈的帮助。d说的是：警察的帮助。第四段的最后讲到男人时作者用了这么一个短语：a little bit more intuitive。直觉感知更多一些。 可见a是正确答案。类似的描述也见于第三段。
42 c 该题问的是：女人倾向于用什么?a说的是：测量法。b说的是：传统法。c说的是：路线法。d说的是：正确的办法。第三段的最后一句是这么说的：然而，女人是试图先把整个路线详详细细地记住，然后跟着脑子里的线路走。因此c是 正确的。
43 d 该题问的是：路线法和测量法，哪种更好些?倒数第四段是这么说的：两种 都可以，不能说一种比另一种更好。可见d是正确的。
44 d 该题问的是：哪一种不是地标?顾名思义，你脑袋里的线路当然不是路标。
45 c 该题问的是：女人的方位感是出于什么样的需要形成的?a说的是：为了钓 鱼。b说的是：为了打猎。c说的是：为了熟悉常用的道路。d说的是：为了游泳。c可以在最后一段的倒数第二旬找到。
46 c 第三段的第一句话说的是：加勒比群岛形成了一个锁链，把加勒比海与大西 洋的其他部分分开。有可能构成答案的是c和d。因为它们的第一个词都是“they”， 该词回指“the caribbean islands”。但是，“the caribbean islands”只有古巴等四个国家组成不符合实际情况，因此c是正确的。
47 b 第四段的第一句话(主题句)说的是：加勒比群岛有好几个名字。这是一个 总的概括，紧接着应该是具体的说明。b是具体的说明：欧洲人最早用的名字是印 度群岛(theirldies)，后来叫做西印度群岛(the west indies)。
48 d 第五段的第一句话说的是：加勒比海有四个大的岛屿。这是一个总的说明。下面应当列举。d是列举。
49 f 第六段的第一句话说的是：加勒比群岛中的其他岛屿小得多。接着应该是进 一步说明。f是进一步说明。
50 e 晟后一段讲到加勒比海的天气温暖，阳光充裕，许多岛屿的海岸有沙滩。这样的自然环境显然会吸引旅游者。因此e是正确的选择。
5l c 第一段第一个句子是主题旬，说的是：eric：brown讨厌买东西。因此 “shopping”是合适的选择。
52 a 语境是这样的：当我出去买东西时，我基本上已经知道要买什么。我冲了进去，买了后……显然，填入“get 0ut”(出去)是连贯的。“move round”是“转身”，“look round”是“环顾”，“move about”是“闲荡”，不难看出，这些都不是 合适的选择。
53 b 第二段的第一个句子说的是：通常人们认为，男人讨厌买东西。第三句的起始词是“but”，它告诉我们意思将发生转折，因此“challenging”是合适的选择。 “challenging”是“挑战”的意思。“defending”是“保卫”，“proving”是“证明”， “supporting”是“支持”。
54 a 第三段的第一个句子引自纽约城市大学社会学教授sharon zukin的话，大意是：……在社会阶层、种族特点、年龄上是有差异的，男人都说他们讨厌买东西。 可以看出，合适的选择是“．regardless of”(不管)。“because of”，“owing to”，“1\'hanks to”都表示“原因”，插入后意思上是不连贯的。
55 b 紧接着第三段第一个句子的后一个句子由“yet”起始， 这个词提示我们由它引导的句子在意思上跟上～个句子构成对比。由于上一个句子说的是“男人们 讨厌买东西”，那么这个句子应当说的是男人们实际上是喜欢买东西的。因此，like”是合适的选择。
56 d 从下文的“music”(音乐)，“hardware”(硬件)判断，“coats”(外套)，caps (帽子)socks(：袜子)都不是合适的选择，因为它们都不能与“music”和“hardware” 构成一个比较自然的类别，所以惟有books”是合适的选择。另外，紧随其后的 一句话中也出现了“books”这个词，这是提示。
57 d 该题问的是：男人们不把买书和占乐制品看做是购物，那么他们把它们看做 是什么呢?从下面的三段提供的信息来看，“research”(研究)比“job”(活)， “movement”(走动)，“exercise”(锻炼)更合适一点。
58 d 该题问的是：男人们和女人们在称之为“买东西”和行事方式上都会怎么样? 所在的句子实际上是对前～段文章的总结。所以合适的选择是“different”。 similar”(相似的)，“close”(相近的)和“alike”(相同的)都不构成答案。
59 a 买东西是需要来回看的，这是常识。另外，紧随其后的句子中也用了“’wander” (漫游)这个词。
60 d 上文中出现了“perfect”(完美无缺的)。注意：文章始终在把男人与女人做比较。因此此处也应用“perfect”。
61 c 注意紧随其后的动词不定式“to be won”(赢得)，能跟“’won”在语义上搭配的只能是“game”(游戏)。
62 c 这个句子要表达的是：这会使得他们快乐。“makes”是正确的。如果用“brings”，须改原文：it brings them happiness或it brings happiness to them。如用
“causes”，也须改原文：it causes them to become happy。“it keeps them happy”是可以说的，但它的意思是：他们原来就快乐。但是，是否如此?文章没有说。
63 a “nobody”，“anybody”和“no one”般用于否定的语境。但该句子提供不是一种否定的语境，因此，正确的选择是“everybody’”。
64 c 至此文章都是在说男女之间的差别，因此“division”是理想的选择。整个句 子说的是：事实上，在服装方面最能清楚地把男女区分开来。“explanation”是“解 释”，“intention”是“意图”，description”是“描写”。
65 d 对许多男人来说，选择的范围越窄，买衣服越方便。“选择的范围越窄”是“买 衣服越方便”的条件。因此“∥(如果)是合适的选择。
