A Although man has known about asbestos for many hundreds of years, it was not until 160 years ago that it was mined for the first time on the North American continent. H. W. Johns, owner of a New York City Supply Shop for roofers, was responsible for (对……负责)the opening of that first mine. w.w.w.k.s.5.u.c.o.m Mr, Jonhs was given a piece of asbestos which had been found in Italy. He experimented with the material and then showed its surprising powers to his customers. After putting on a pair of asbestos gloves, which looked much like ordinary work gloves, he took red-hot coals from the fireplace and played with them in his hands. How astonished the customers were to discover that he was not burned at all. You can well imaging that he had increasing business in asbestos roofing materials. However, because it was very expensive to transport(carry)them from Italy to the United States, Mr Johns sent out a young scientist to seek a source nearer home. This young man found great vein(岩脉), in the province of Quebec in Canada. Ever since 1881 Quebec has led the world in the production of this unusual mineral, which is made up of magnesium, silicon, iron, and oxygen. When it is mined, the asbestos is heavy, just as you would expect a mineral to be. When it is separated, a strange thing happens ;the rock breaks down into fine, soft, soapy fibres(纤维). Scientists do not know why the rock can be separated easily into threads(线), but they have found thousands of uses for this fireproof material, of the called the “cloth of stone”.

Johns proved his ability as a salesman by ______. A. going into the roofing business B. carrying asbestos from Italy C. sending a trained scientist D. showing the use of asbestos gloves

The news report that night was about a famine(饥荒)in Ethiopia. The pictures were of people who were so thin that they looked like beings from another planet. The camera (摄像机)focused (聚焦)on one man so that he looked directly at me, sitting in my comfortable living room. All around was the sound of death. It was clear that the world had not noticed this until now. You could hear the sadness in the voice of the reporter. Michael Buerk. At the end of the report he was silent. Paula started crying, then rushed upstairs to check our baby, Fifi, who was sleeping peacefully. I kept seeing the news pictures in my mind. What could I do? I was only a pop singer and by now not a very successful pop singer. All I could do was to make records which no one bought. But I would do that. I would give all the profits (利润)of the next Rats (the name of the music group he was in)record to Oxfam (an organization in Britain which helps poor people around the would). What good would that do? It would only be a little money but it was more than I could give just from my bank account. Maybe some people would buy it because the profits were for Oxfam. And I would be protesting about this disaster (灾难). But that was not enough.

After he saw a news report on TV about the faming in Ethiopia, he decided he had to do something about the problem. C.

The writer wished that. w.w.w.k.s.5.u.c.o.m A. he would be a very successful pop singer if he could have sold all his records. B. he would rather give all his money from his bank account than the little money made by making new records C. perhaps people would be interested in his records because they knew that the money they paid for them would go to Oxfam. D. He would make records which no one bought.

CARDIFF, Wales──Poets, singers and musicians from across the globe gathered Wales to celebrate the tradition(传统)of storytelling. “It might seem strange that people still want to listen in age of watching television, but this is an unusual art form whose time has cone again, ”said David Ambrose, director of Beyond the Border, an international storytelling festival(节)in Wales. “Some of the tales, like those of the Inuit from Canada, are thousands years old.

Two Inuit women, both in their mid 60s, are among the few remaining who can do Kntadjait, or throat singing, which has few words and much sound. Their art is governed by the cold of their surroundings, forcing them to say little but listen attentively. Ambrose started the festival in 1993, after several years of working with those reviving(coming back into use or existence)storytelling in Wales. “It came out of a group of people who wanted to reconnect with traditions. and as all the Welsh are storytellers, it was in good hands here, ”Ambrose said.

which I might persuade my parents to think as I do ? Yours, Money-Conscious w.w.w.k.s.5.u.c.o.m Dear Money-Conscious, We agree that your point of view is reasonable; but reason isn?t everything. Your parents clearly do not mind ?going to a lot of expense?, as you put it. They would mind more if you prevented them from doing so. There is, in fact, no reason why a white wedding in church should cost a lot of money. Such a wedding can be very simple, yet it can give you the sort of happy memories that your mother has of her own wedding day. We suggest you meet your mother halfway. Have a simple church wedding and a simple party afterwards. If it means so much to your mother, perhaps you owe it to her to do as she wishes. We are sure that you will not regret it. Dear lifeline, I have known my girlfriend for six years. The other day, I asked her to marry me, certain that I knew what the answer would be. But she said she wanted to think about it. I shall be going on holiday soon, and I hoped she would come with me; but now she says she?d rather go on holiday with a friend of hers. Am I losing her? Yours, Deeply Worried Dear Deeply Worried, Perhaps you were too certain of your girlfriend. Six years is a long time. Perhaps you have been in each other?s packets for too long. Give yourselves a holiday from each other, and then ask her again on your return. We think you will find that she will give you the answer that you want.
