Alex Elman runs a big business—something hard to imagine after she lost her sight in her twenties. But Elman says that losing her sight helped her focus on finding success.
Elman’s father planted a hillside vineyard in western Massachusetts in 1981. It’s where Elman fled during the darkest period of her life. When she was 27 years old, she went blind due to complications from juvenile diabetes (幼年型糖尿病) 17 years ago. She recalled, “I hid in my home. I hid in the place, to me, that was the safest place in the world.”
Elman is now the founder of Alex Elman Wines, a growing portfolio (股份) of organic wines from all around the world: Chianti from Italy, Torrontes from Argentina. Elman doesn’t work alone. Her assistant a guide dog named Hanley, is something of a wine snob, and quite a beggar. Hanley travels to all of the wineries that Elman does, from South America to Europe.
At first, Elman resisted the idea of a seeing-eye dog. Now it’s hard to imagine her life, or her business, without him. She said, “When someone tells me something is organic and I don’t really believe it because I taste something funny on it, I’ll put it in front of his face and if he likes the wine, he’ll actually go in and sniff (嗅) it. If it’s not right, he’ll turn his head away…He gets in the dirt with me. He scratches around. He makes sure that we see earthworms and butterflies. That’s how we know that the soil is actually organic, that there are no chemicals.”
Elman told CBS News she believes the loss of her vision was a gift. She said, “It allowed me to pay attention to what I thought was important and also to be able to teach people that the broken hang nail is not a big deal, you know what I mean? Don’t sweat the small stuff. Don’t sweat the big stuff either.”
24.Elman hid herself in her father’s vineyard probably because she ________.
A. suffered from juvenile diabetes
B. was extremely painful for her blindness
C. would like to help her father with the work
D. expected to recover her sight sooner or later
25.We can learn from Paragraph 3 and Paragraph 4 that Elman ________.
A. has earned a large amount of money
B. plans to operate organic wine companies
C. has become successful with Hanley’s help
D. has travelled around the world with Hanley
26.The underlined phrase “the broken hang nail” (in Paragraph5) probably refers to ________.
A. a nail which is of no use B. a disadvantage you have in your life
C. a person who is hard to deal with D. a task that is not easy to accomplish
27.This passage is mainly to tell us that ________.
A. Alex Elman leads a miserable life
B. Hanley brings Alex Elman much fun
C. Alex Elman gets along well with her pet
D. a blind woman tastes success in wine business
Some spiders hunt on the ground, others build webs to trap their food, but the grass water spider catches its prey by running along the surface of the water.
This special water spider lives on the grassy banks of streams where mosquitoes, flies and other insects come to feed and breed.
Although it is one of the largest spiders in New Zealand, it has an unusual ability. It doesn’t disturb the water as it waits for its meal， and there is barely a ripple (波纹) when it skims (掠过) across the surface at lightning speed to catch its prey.
Grass water spiders deal swiftly with larger insects like damsel flies by pulling their heads under the water and holding them there until they drown.
After a meal, the grass water spider spends up to half an hour grooming (修饰) itself. It wipes its eight eyes, brushes its antennae (触角), and takes special care to clean the hairs on its body.
It is the hairs that trap tiny bubbles (泡沫) of air so that the spider can run down a blade (叶片) of grass and stay underwater for up to an hour when it is frightened. The hairs also keep the spider dry, even underwater.
It is only when the female spider is caring for the young that she does not hunt on the water. After mating (交配), she produces a large egg sac (囊), which she carries around for five weeks. Once the eggs start to hatch (孵化), she attaches the sac to some blades of grass or a thistle (蓟). She then tears the sac open and releases the tiny spiders into the nursery web.
28.How does the grass water spider kill its prey?
A.in a web B.by drowning C.by poisoning D. with its antennae
29.The writer describes the special spider as “special” because ________.
A. it walks on water B. it has eight eyes
C. of its hairy appearance D. of the way it produces its young
30.The passage tells us that the spider ________.
A. feeds grass
B. lives on blades of grass under the water
C. lives in the grass on the banks of streams
D. eats a meal once every five weeks
31.The purpose of the passage is to ________.
A. convince readers that spiders are dangerous
B. indicate that the grass water spider is endangered
C. list all of the spiders that can be found in New Zealand
D. describe the characteristics of the grass water spider
While the arts can’t stop the COVID-19 virus or the social unrest we see in the world today, they can give us insight into the choices we make when moving through crises and chaos. The arts invite everyone to think in new ways.
We often experience works of art as something that’s pleasing to our senses without a full understanding of the creative effort. Great art often shows us contradictions and crises, and we can learn a great deal from their resolutions (解决). Through our understanding of art, we can gain a deeper understanding of how we might overcome our own challenges. In understanding extremes of contrast, we can see the beauty in art with themes that are not simply pleasing for their magnificent features or qualities.
Beethoven offers a wonderful example of moving artfully through crises and chaos. He composed his Symphony No.9 as his hearing loss became more and more pronounced. The opening of the symphony seems to come out of nowhere, from near silence in the opening to a full expression of what many consider to be the joy of freedom and universal brotherhood with Schiller’s Ode to joy (欢乐颂). Beethoven appears to have created a work of art that not only freed him from his personal struggles, but one that also speaks to the joy of living together in peace and harmony.
Have a dialogue between the two opposing parts and you will find that they always start out fighting each other until we come to an appreciation of difference—a oneness of the two opposing forces. The arts offer many lessons that can help us gain the knowledge we need to move more confidently in today’s competitive and uncertain environment. An openness to arts-based solutions will give you more control over your future.
32.What value does art have beyond pleasing people’s senses?
A. It brings people inner peace. B. It contributes to problem-solving.
C. It reduces the possibility of crises. D. It deepens understanding of music.
33.What can we learn about Beethoven’s Symphony No.9?
A. It celebrates freedom and unity. B. It aims to show crises and chaos.
C. It opens with Schiller’s Ode to Joy. D. It is unfinished due to his hearing loss.
34. What is the author’s suggestion on dealing with conflicting forces?
A. Leaving things as they are. B. Making a choice between them.
C. Separating them from each other. D. Engaging them in a conversation.
35.Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A. How COVID-19 changes art B. Essentials of Symphony No.9
C. Moving artfully through crises D. Joy in the eyes of Beethoven

Slowly and quietly, I walked up and sat down beside her. “What’s wrong?” I asked. “Oh, nothing,” came a soft reply, “I am just too short.” The coach told her that at 165cm she would probably never play for a top team—still less she would be 50 a scholarship—so she should stop dreaming about college.
I felt she was extremely 51 . I asked her if she had talked to her dad about it yet. She told me that her father said those coaches were 52 . They didn’t understand the 53 of a dream.
The next year, Sally was seen by a college basketball coach after a big game. She was 54 offered a scholarship and 55 to the college team. She was going to get the college education that she had dreamed of and worked toward for all those years.

I am more than glad to receive your letter in which you ask me about the Spring Festival and I can’t wait to tell you about it.
As the most energetic and important celebration in China, the Spring Festival is observed on the 1st of the 1st lunar month. It is a meaningful time for families to get together, enjoying their reunion dinner, including chicken, egg rolls and fish, watching the Spring Festival Gala and having fun with each other. In addition, it is a custom to paste red couplets, set off firecrackers, put on the traditional show known as lion and dragon dance and visit relatives. The Spring Festival is also the happiest time for children, because they can get lucky money in red paper as a gift from the elder.
Would you like to spend the Spring Festival with me in China? I am looking forward to your coming and I am sure you will like it.
