But, according to a new study, we should be placing a higher value on motherhood all year. Mothers have long known that their home worked was just heavy as paid work. Now, the new study has shown that if they were paid for their parental labors, they would earn as much as ￡172,000 a year. The study looked at the range of jobs mothers do, as well as the hours they are working, to determine the figure. This would make their yearly income￡3000 more than the Prime Minister earns. By analyzing the numbers, it found the average mother works 119 hours a week,40 of which would usually be paid at a standard rate 79 hours as overtime. After questioning 1,000 mothers with children under 18,it found that ,on most days, mums started their routine work at 7am and finished at around 11pm. To calculate just how much mothers would earn from that labor, it suggested some of the roles that mums could take on, including housekeeper, part-time lawyer, personal trainer and entertainer. being a part-time lawyer, at ￡48.98 an hour, would prove to be the most profitable of the ―mum jibs‖, with psychologist a close second.
It also asked mothers about the challenges they face, with 80 percent making emotional demand as the hardest thing about motherhood. Over a third of mums felt they needed more training and around half said they missed going out with friends. The study shoes mothers matter all year long and not just on Mother‘s Day. The emotional, physical and mental energy mothers devote to their children can be never-ending, but children are also sources of great joy and happiness. Investing in time for parenting and raising relationships is money well spent. 58.The biggest challenge for most mothers is from A. emotional demand C. heavy workload B. low pay for work D. lack of training .
59.What is stressed in the last paragraph? A. Mothers‘ importance shows in family all year long. B. The sacrifices mothers make are huge but worthwhile. C. Mothers‘ devotion to children can hardly be calculated. D. Investing time in parenting would bring a financial return. 60.What can we conclude from the study? A. Mothers‘ working hours should be largely reduced. B. Mothers should balance their time for work and rest. C. Mothers‘ labor is of a higher value than it is realized. D. Mothers should be freed from housework for social life. C The journal Science is adding an extra round of statistical checks to its peer-review process, editor-in-chief Marcia McNutt announced today. The policy follows similar efforts from other journals, after widespread concern that basic mistakes in data analysis are contributing to the irreproducibility of many published research findings. ―Readers must have confidence in the conclusions published in our journal,‖ writes McNutt in an editorial. Working with the American Statistical Association, the journal has appointed seven experts to a statistics board of reviewing editors(SBoRE). Manuscript. will be flagged up for additional scrutiny by the journal‘s internal editors, or by its existing Board of Reviewing Editors
or by outside peer reviewers. The SBoRE panel will then find external statisticians to review these manuscripts. Asked whether any particular papers had impelled the change, McNutt said: ―The creation of the ?statistics board‘ was motivated by concerns broadly with the application of statistics and data analysis in scientific research and is part of Science‘s overall drive to increase reproducibility in the research we publish.‖ Giovanni Parmigiani, a biostatistician at the Harvard School of Public Health, a member of the SBoRE group. He says he expects the board to ―play primarily an advisory role.‖ He agreed to join because he ―found the foresight behind the establishment of the SBoRE to be novel, unique and likely to have a lasting impact. This impact will not only be through the publications in Science itself, but hopefully through a larger group of publishing places that may want to model their approach after Science.‖ John Ioannidis, a physician who studies research methodology, says that the policy is ―a most welcome step forward‖ and ―long overdue.‖ ―Most journals are weak in statistical review, and this damages the quality of what they publish. I think that, for the majority of scientific papers nowadays, statistical review is more essential than expert review,‖ he says. But he noted that biomedical journals such as Annals of Internal Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association and The Lancet pay strong attention to statistical review. Professional scientists are expected to know how to analyze data, but statistical errors are alarmingly common in published research, according to David Vaux, a cell biologist. Researchers should improve their standards, he wrote in 2012, but journals should also take a tougher line, ―engaging reviewers who are statistically literate and editors who can verify the process‖. Vaux says that Science‘s idea to pass some papers to statisticians ―has some merit, but a weakness is that it relies on the board of reviewing editors to identify ?the papers that need scrutiny‘ in the first place‖. 61. It can be learned from Paragraph 1 that________________. A. Science intends to simplify their peer-review process. B. journals are strengthening their statistical checks. C .few journals are blamed for mistakes in data analysis. D. lack of data analysis is common in research projects.
62. Giovanni Parmigiani believes that the establishment of the SBoRE may_____________. A. pose a threat to all its peers. B. meet with strong opposition. C. increase Science‘s circulation. D. set an example for other journals. 63. David Vaux holds that what Science is doing now_____________. A. adds to researchers‘ workload. B. diminishes the role of reviewers. C. has room for further improvement. D. is to fail in the foreseeable future 64. Which of the following is the best title of the text? A. Science Joins Push to Screen Statistics in Papers. B. Professional Statisticians Deserve More Respect C. Data Analysis Finds Its Way onto Editors‘ Desks D. Statisticians Are Coming Back with Science D Scrooge looked around him angrily. It was Christmas and his only friend Jacob Marley, had been dead of seven years. What was there for him to celebrate? He listened with growing anger to the people calling out greetings in the street and growled at his nephew Bob Cratchit, who was just ready to go home. ―Merry Christmas, uncle,‖ called Bob as he hurried out of the door. Scrooge sighed. He might just as well go to bed. Aware that he should not waste his candle, he quickly undressed and climbed into bed. But no sooner had he done so than the ghost of Marley, covered in chains, appeared. ―What‘s the matter, Jacob?‖ he asked. ―There are the chains I made in my life,‖ answered the ghost. ―I‘m forced to wander around with no rest and no peace. I have come here to warn you that if you do not change, this too will be your fate. You will be visited by three spirits. Expect the first one tomorrow when the clock strikes one. Expect the second and the third on the following nights at the same hour.‖ With that Marley vanished. ―Nonsense!‖ he said and going back to bed, fell fast asleep. When Scrooge awoke it was dark. The clock struck one. At the sound, light flashed into the room and there stood a young boy. ―Who are you?‖ asked Scrooge in an unsteady voice. ―I‘m the
spirit of Christmas past,‖ replied the spirit. ―Come with me.‖ ―Do you remember this?‖ he asked. Scrooge did. He heard the happy cries of people, and looking around he found himself, as he used to be, sitting on a chair and reading. It was a Christmas. Suddenly Scrooge watched his younger self joined in a band, dancing and laughing. ―Strange,‖ said the spirit, ―that such little things should make people so happy.‖ The ghost let him go and Scrooge sank down into a deep sleep. When he awoke again the second night, the clock sounded one again. Before he doubted the second spirit already turned up. The fat and jolly spirit was smiling,‖ I‘m the spirit of Christmas present.‖ Again Scrooge grasped the spirit‘s hand and was transported to a small house filled with a number of children and their mother. ―Why, it‘s my nephew Bob‘s house,‖ cried Scrooge in astonishment. His surprise increased when the door opened and in came Bob carrying a small, sick boy, Tiny Tim. ―it down,‖ cried Bob to his family. ―Let‘s have the best Christmas dinner!‖ They all began to eat eagerly. Scrooge watched at the happiness and contentment of his poor nephew‘s family. ―A Merry Christmas to us all!‖ cried Bob. ―God bless us everyone!‖ added Tiny Tim, who sat very close to his father and Bob held his thin hand tightly. ―No, not for the uncle, but for you and the children. Nobody knows better than you how mean that man is.‖ exclaimed Bob‘s wife. ―Spirit,‖ cried Scrooge. ―Will Tiny Tim live?‖ ―If the future remains the same,‖ said the spirit, ―there will be an empty chair next year.‖ Again the spirit moved Scrooge away, and he fell asleep as he fell back into his bed. The third night he woke and waited for the hour and the third spirit. This time the spirit didn‘t come in a flash of light but arrived quietly wearing a black cloth that covered its face and form. ―I‘m the spirit of Christmas that is to come.‖ The spirit pointed and led him to a large stone. It was at the foot of a grave(坟墓) that was clearly neglected. Scrooge looked closer with trembling fingers and with horror read his own name on the stone. ―Oh, spirit, no, no!‖ The spirit‘s finger remained steady pointing at the grave. ―I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year,‖ cried Scrooge in terror. He reached out to hold the spirit‘s hand, but it slipped away. Scrooge looked around him. he saw he was in his own bed with his own thing around him. ―I have learned from the past, present and the future,‖ he rushed to the window and shouted to the boys below: ―What day is it today?‖ ―Why, it‘s Christmas Day,‖ they replied in amazement. ―Wonderful,‖ cried Scrooge. He rushed to his office to wait for Bob. When he entered, Scrooge pretended to look angry. ―Do you know what day it is, my boy? ‖ he asked Bob. ―I‘m not going to
stand for this any longer,‖ he continued, ―and so I‘m going to raise your salary.‖ Bob looked amazed. ―A Merry Christmas, Bob,‖ cried Scrooge slapping him on the back. ―I want to help you and your family. Let‘s talk about it this very afternoon.‖ 65. What do the underlined words ―growled at‖ mean in the first paragraph? A. said happily to B. said calmly to C. said slowly to D. said angrily to

However, creativity is more
than what is defined by the dictionary. It is an idea, a process, a thought or a state of mind. One cannot learn to be creative because creativity is natural and unique to each individual. People should know that creativity doesn‘t equal success. It equals the act of expressing. So. if at first the goal that is aimed for is not achieved, there is no need for worry or frustration. Creativity can, however, be released by discovery. Some people need encouragement to help release their creativity. There are quite a few ways to release it. One way to release creativity would be to look for what can inspire you. Looking at the world and admiring the differences in people and places help. Creativity can be drawn from their beauty. A person can touch, taste, smell, hear, and see hundreds of different objects. Aromas from foods, textures of blankets, and sight of unusual objects can all give inspiration. Many people are too concerned with how things should look. The focus should be on how it actually looks in the raw, to the human eye. Colors and shapes can be distorted(扭曲)by the mere fact that people want others to see it for what it is. It‘s more difficult for someone to let go of all that and just let their creativity flow, unblocked. Another way to get the creativity flowing is to research what other artists have done or are currently doing. Their cultures and biographies alone can be an inspiration. Examining their works can help some appreciate artistic expression. New techniques can even be drawn from their works. Some people are even inspired by everyday events, like reading the newspaper or watching the news. Some can take other people‘s situations and describe how it makes them feel. That is a way to release creativity. Controversial issues, such as war or abortion, can inspire writings like poems. They can be used to express death, loss, or tragedy. General topics such as religion or politics can branch off into many directions, sending creativity into overdrive. Creativity is not about reaching a goal or being a perfectionist. It‘s about being, feeling, and taking all that is inside and letting it out in one way or another. Creativity is not always expressed by paintings, drawings, or writings. One‘s action is the main form to express creativity. Romance, for example, is a form of creativity. Love and emotion are inspired by one person for another. Taking something inside and then putting it back out into the world as another thing is the key of creativity. Knowing and loving someone so much that there is a need to express it is a very natural form of creativity.
Another form of expressing creativity is talking. Some people are more blessed in this area than in more obvious ones such as painting or drawing. They Paint a ―word picture‖. Speeches can be centered around new ideas and thoughts. It can contain an idea of one‘s being and transform it into either simple or complicated words. Inspiration is vital to creativity. Even if it‘s only a slight feeling or thought that inspires. Creativity can be released each time attempts are made to use the body as all outlet. Remember that creativity is not an art form, but that it forms art. How to Release Creativity Outlines Details ●Creativity is more than just a(71) ______ given in the dictionary.

struggle to stay afloat. She also had hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her tail, her torso and a line tugging in her mouth. A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farallone Islands(outside the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her, a very dangerous proposition. One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer. They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her. When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around, she thanked them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same. May you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude.

第五部分 书面表达（满分 25 分） One possible version: Freed from the hundreds of pounds of traps and hundreds of yards of line rope, the trapped whale expressed her gratefulness to each diver, which impressed and touched them greatly.(31 words) Nowadays, quite a few students lack consciousness of being grateful. Many reasons account for that. Firstly, many parents pay too much attention to children‘s academic performance, but ignore their value orientation. Moreover, schools don‘t‘ input enough time and money in moral education. So I always think if everyone is grateful to our society, it will be more harmonious. If everyone has got a grateful heart to our parents, teachers and friends, love and happiness will greet us every day. Therefore, it is high time to take effective measures to strengthen students‘ consciousness of being grateful. We students should learn to express our gratefulness to people around us, just start with small things---give our parents a warm hug and make them a cup of tea, send thank-you cards to our dear teachers and send thank-you emails to our friends etc.
