完型填空

I often read of incidents of misunderstanding or conflict. I'm left     . Why do these people create mistrust and problems, especially with those from other     ?
I was growing up in Kuala Lumpur in the early 1960s,      children from different races and religions played and studied      in harmony. At that time my family lived a stone's      from Ismail's. And no one was bothered that Ismail was a Malay Muslim and I was an Indian Hindu—we just      our differences. Perhaps,our elders had not filled our heads with unnecessary advice, well      or otherwise.
We were nine when we became friends. During the school holidays, we 'd      the countryside on our bicycles,hoping to      the unexpected. At times Ismail would accompany my family as we made a rare shopping trip to town. We would be glad of his     .
When I was twelve, my family moved to Johor. Ismail's family later returned to their village, and I      touch with him.
One spring afternoon in 1983, I stopped a taxi in Kuala Lumpur. I     my destination. The driver acknowledged my      but did not move off. Instead, he looked      at me. “Raddar?" he said, using my childhood nickname (绰号).I was astonished at being so      addressed (称呼).Unexpectedly! It was Ismail! Even after two      we still recognized each other. Grasping his shoulder, I felt a true affection, something      to describe.
If we can allow our children to be      without prejudice, they'll build friendships with people,regardless of race or religion, who will be      their side through thick and thin. On such friendships are societies built and      we can truly be, as William Shakespeare once wrote, “We happy few, We band of brothers".

The idea for the book Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone came to Joanne Kathleen Rowling in 1990. It took her seven years to finish writing it. During those seven years she had a number of jobs, including one job as an English teacher in Portugal.
Rowling sent the book to four publishers before one of them bought it. She was very happy to sell her book because it was her life's dream to be a published writer. Before she sold her book, Rowling was living in a small apartment with her daughter and was so poor that she could not afford heat in the winter.
Harry Potter became very successful with children and adults in England. The book also really took off in the United States. After her second and third books were published, the three Harry Potter books filled the top three places on many newspapers' lists of best-sellers. Then the books were made into popular movies. Without question, Rowling's life had completely changed, in just three years.
Harry Potter books have now sold more than 30 million books around the world and have been translated into more than thirty-five languages. In 1997, Rowling was earning £70 (about US$110) a week. By the end of 2001, she had earned over £150 million ($250 million), making her one of the most successful female writers of all time.

Tail Spin

Two dolphins race around in a big pool in the Ocean Park. The smaller dolphin Grace, shown off a few of her tricks, turning around and waving hello to the crowd. The most amazing thing about her, however, is that she’s even swimming at all. She doesn’t have a tail.
Grace lost her tail as a baby when she got caught up in a fish trap.
When the dolphin arrived at the Ocean Park in December 2005, she was fighting for her life. “Is she going to make it?” Her trainer, Abbey Stone, feared the worst. Grace did make it — but her tail didn’t. She ended up losing her flukes and the lower part of her peduncle.
Over the past six years, she has learned to swim without her tail. Dolphins swim by moving their flukes and peduncle up and down. Grace taught herself to move another way—like a fish! She pushed herself forward through the water by moving her peduncles from side to side.
The movement put harmful pressure on Grace’s backbone. So a company offered to create a man-made tail for her. The tail had to be strong enough to stay on Grace as she swam but soft enough that it wouldn’t hurt her.
The first time Grace wore the artificial tail. She soon shook it off and let it sink in the bottom of the pool. Now, she is still learning to use the tail. Some days she wears it for an hour at a time, others not at all. “The tail isn’t necessary for her to feel comfortable,” says Stone, “but it helps to keep that range of motion(动作) and build muscles(肌肉).”
Now, the dolphin is about to get an even happier ending. This month, Grace will star in Dolphin Tale, a film that focus on her rescue and recovery. Her progress has inspired more than just a new movie. Many people travel from near and far to meet her. Seeing Grace swim with her man-made tail gives people so much courage.
【小题1】When Grace first arrived at the Ocean Park, her trainer worried about her .

A.physical build, R! H, P) I/ b' G B.potential ability, R! H, P) I/ b' G 
C.chance of survival, R! H, P) I/ b' G D.adaptation to the surroundings., R! H, P) I/ b' G

Most children, even the youngest of children, are delighted to be around cats and dogs. But these pets carry plenty of germs and allergens(过敏原), prompting researchers to ask: Are cats and dogs really safe for children?
A study finds that, contrary to many parents’ fears, owning cats or dogs does not increase a child’s risk of developing allergies, and in fact, may actually protect them. The study’s lead author, Dr. Dennic Ownby of the Medical College of Georgia, says that even he was “very surprised” by the results. Ownby and colleagues followed more than 470 children from birth to age 6 or 7, comparing those exposed to cats and dogs during their first year of life to those who were not.
By using skin-prick tests for detecting common allergies, the researchers found that, contrary to what many doctors had been taught for years, children who had lived with a pet were not at greater risk.
Even more remarkable, children who had two or more dogs or cats had an even greater reduction, up to 77 percent, in risk of allergies. Researchers suggest this protective effect may be the result of early exposure to lots of bacteria that are carried by dogs and cats. Exposing young children to these bacteria helps "exercise" their immune systems early in life so that they're better able to resist allergic diseases later.
There's something very important in that first year of life when the immune(免疫) system is developing that we can retrain it away from an allergic response, said Dr. William Davis.
And while researchers are not encouraging parents to buy dogs or cats just to reduce a child’s allergy risk, they say if a family already has one or more animals, there's no need to get rid of them.
【小题1】Why do the researchers feel “very surprised” by the results of the study?

A.Because the results are contrary to their expectation.; F* W, T1 F" [3 H. @, H; B
B.Because so many children are playing with cats and dogs.; F* W, T1 F" [3 H. @, H; B
C.Because parents are so much worried about their children.; F* W, T1 F" [3 H. @, H; B
D.Because children with animals may develop allergies easily.; F* W, T1 F" [3 H. @, H; B
【小题2】Compared with children who have pets,those who haven’t  ______.
A.will lose the chance to develop immune system; F* W, T1 F" [3 H. @, H; B
B.will reduce the harm from bacteria; F* W, T1 F" [3 H. @, H; B

Like many lovers of books, Mary and her husband, Richard Goldman, seldom walked past a bookstore without stopping to look inside. They often talked of opening their own store one day.
When Mary was hospitalized with heart trouble in 1989, they decided it was time to get serious. Richard, who worked for a business company, was eager to work for himself, and Mary needed to slow down from her demanding job.
They started by talking to bookstore owners and researching the industry. “We knew it had to be a specialty store because we couldn’t match the big chains dollar for dollar,” says Mary. One figure caught her attention: She’d read somewhere that roughly 20 percent of books sold were mysteries (推理小说), and many buyers spent more $300 a year on books. She and Richard were themselves mystery readers.
On Halloween 1992, they opened the Mystery Lovers Bookshop and Café near their home. With three children in college, the couple could not spend all the family’s money to start a shop. To cover the $100,000 cost, they drew some of their savings, borrowed from relatives and from an bank.
The store merely broke even in its first year, with only $120,000 in sales. But Mary was always coming up with new ways to attract customers. The shop had a coffee bar and it offered gifts to mystery lovers and served dinners for book clubs that met in the store. She also invited dozens of writers to discuss their stories.
Today Mystery Lovers makes sales of about $420,000 a year. After paying taxes, business costs and the six part-time sales clerks, Richard and Mary together earn about $34,000.
“The job you love may not go hand in hand with a million-dollar income,” says Richard. “This has always been about an enjoyable life for ourselves, not about making a lot of money.”
【小题1】When Mary was in hospital, the couple realized that ____.

A.they had to put their plan into practice. i, J5 K( a3 W
B.health was more important than wealth. i, J5 K( a3 W
C.heart trouble was a serious illness. i, J5 K( a3 W
D.they both needed to stop working. i, J5 K( a3 W
【小题2】After Mary got well from her illness they began _____.
A.to study industrial management. i, J5 K( a3 W
B.to buy and read more mystery books. i, J5 K( a3 W
C.to do market research on book business . i, J5 K( a3 W
D.to work harder to save money for the bookstore. i, J5 K( a3 W
【小题3】How did their bookstore do in the first year?
A.They had to borrow money to keep it going.. i, J5 K( a3 W
B.They made just enough to cover all the costs.. i, J5 K( a3 W
C.They succeeded in earning a lot of money.. i, J5 K( a3 W
D.They failed though they worked hard.. i, J5 K( a3 W
【小题4】According to Richard, the main purpose of running the bookstore is _____.
A.to pay for their children’s education. i, J5 K( a3 W
B.to get to know more writers. i, J5 K( a3 W
C.to set up more bookstores. i, J5 K( a3 W
