The Milu deer has returned to China. At present there are not many Milu deer in nature parks in China, but the number is increasing every year.
The Milu deer is a kind of deer that used to be common in China long ago. However, it disappeared during the Ming and the Qing periods. Too many of the deer had been killed and they disappeared.
Until recently，the only Milu deer alive in the world belonged to the Duke（公爵） of Bedford in England. Some deer had been taken to England，where they were kept in the great park. They liked the cool wet weather there and their number increased year by year. Today this park in England has the largest number of Milu deer in the world. In fact，there are now so many deer that some are being sent to places which would like to return this kind of deer to the wild.
At present, the biggest nature park for Milu deer in China is the Nanhaizi Milu Park, which is about 20 kilometres south of Beijing. It is an important research centre for nature and wildlife. The life of the Milu deer is being studied there.
The first deer arrived at the centre in 1985 from Britain. By 1993 the number of Milu deer at the centre had grown from 20 to more than 200.
Another centre for Milu deer is in Dafeng in Jiangsu Province. In 1985, 39 Milu deer were brought to the province from Britain. Since then the number of Milu deer there has greatly increased.
More Milu deer are being moved to a new large nature park in Shishou in Hubei Province. At all these centres it is hoped that one day they will have enough animals to set them free and live in the wild again. So once more there will be Milu deer living in the wild in China.

Surfing: It’s Not Just for Boys Anymore
If you asked high school girls to name their favorite sports, most would probably say basketball or volleyball. I happen to be one of the few girls who would : surfing (冲浪运动). But isn’t that a boy thing? Some people , but most are certain.
I started surfing about five years ago and in love with the sport on the very first day. Riding that first was the best feeling I had ever experienced.
When I try to surfing with other things, I find it very difficult because, in my , there’s nothing like it. It involves (牵涉到) body, and soul. There's sand between my toes and cool, salt water all us. The feeling I get when I'm surfing across that , becoming one with the , is like I'm weightless.
The one thing I can from surfing and not any other sport is endless challenge (挑战). You can never be the “best suffer” because the ocean uncountable waves that nobody can ever master. The variations (变化) of surfing styles are wonderful. Some suffers are free and flowing; are very aggressive (活跃有力的) and sharp. All of these things attract me to surfing and make it from any other sport.
I've to tell every girl I know to do something that people don't think girls can do. It's part of being human to advance to new , so shouldn’t it be expected that girls should step up and start pushing the limits of things boys and men to dominate (主宰)?
There’re women side by side with the President of our country, so why not side by side with the boys the football team or out in the water surfing? Give girls a chance to , and they will.
|A．others ||B．the others||C．another||D．other|

Recently I paid a visit to Harvard University, where there are top class scientists and professors and the best academic system in the world.
I was pretty shocked when I first stepped onto the campus. Well, it’s not ever really a campus. It’s a more like district in a small town.
Harvard's main buildings are from the 18th century. They look very old and simple. You might even say they're a little shabby (破旧的). They don’t fit the modern idea of university at all. The buildings are surrounded by grass and trees, so I felt as if I had walked into a medieval castle. But when I looked across the street, busy shops and in-fashion students made me feel like I was in the 21st century again. It creates a strong contrast (对比) and brings a special atmosphere (氛围) to the school.
Our tour guide Gary took us around and told us: “You see this grass field in the center of the school? Here is where they host their graduation ceremony. They just set up tents and benches and have a very simple ceremony. Unbelievable! Who would think the most talented students just graduate on the lawn?”
I saw some students put a blanket on the grass and lie down to read a book. When I listened to the soft sound of pages turning, along with chirping of the birds, I felt very calm. There was no competitive feeling at all.
Harvard has the world’s first computer in its science center and there are hundreds of high-end computers too. Its religion and the literature departments are also among the best. It is the perfect mix of tradition and new technology. It makes Harvard a very attractive place to study in.
I hope one day I’ll attend my dream school—Harvard.
【小题1】According to the article the author was most impressed by ____.
|A．Harvard’s mix of tradition and new technology|
|B．the classes held on beautiful lawns at Harvard|
|C．Harvard students not taking their graduation ceremony seriously|
|D．the feeling of not living in modern society on the campus|
【小题2】What can we conclude from the article?
|A．Harvard campus is actually a district of a big city.|
|B．There are no competitions at Harvard University.|
|C．Graduation ceremonies are not complex at Harvard.|
|D．All Harvard buildings date back to the 18th century.|
【小题3】Which word can be used to describe the Harvard campus?
Popular music in America is what every student likes. Students carry small radios with earphones and listen to music before class, after class, and at lunch. Students with cars buy large speakers and play the music loudly as they drive on the street.

Facebook is now used by 30 million people in the UK, around half the population. Joanna Shields, vice president of Facebook Europe, made the announcement this morning at a media conference in London.
Globally, Facebook has more than 500 million registered （注册的） users, a milestone it hit last summer. Last July it had 26 million registered UK users. In the last eight months, it has attracted four million extra UK users, bringing the UK total to 30 million.
Facebook, the brainchild of Mark Zuckerberg while he was still studying at Harvard University, was launched in February 2004. The pace of its global growth has sped rapidly - Facebook had only 150 million registered users in January 2009.
One third of women aged between 18 to 34 check Facebook when they first wake up, before even going to the toilet, according to the research. 21% check Facebook in the middle of the night, while 42% of the same group think it is fine to post drunken photos of themselves onto the social network, a study by Oxygen Media and Lightspeed Research found.
Shields was speaking this morning at the Financial Times Digital Media and Broadcasting Conference about the power Facebook’s referrals （好友推荐）can bring to media sites, such as newspapers and TV services. She explained that the average Facebook user has 130 friends who they share links to media sites with regularly. “Media companies which take advantage of that are really seeing the benefits,” Shields said. Shields refused to be drawn on whether Facebook would develop its own mobile phone operating system and also said it was “silly” that Google had recently disabled the feature which allowed Google users to refresh their contacts with Facebook friends.
