A new rule was jointly decided in March by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Health and the China Disabled Persons’ Federation. It clearly states that no student should be rejected(拒绝)simply because they have a physical disability.
Schools may still advise disabled students on the choice of their major if it is likely to affect their future chances of employment . However ,the final decision will be up to the student.,
“Now I can just go ahead and do my best in the exams. I don’t have to worry that my healthier classmates will have the upper hand because of my disability,” said Zhang happily.
The 18-year-old boy will graduate this year from a Chengdu high school in Sichuan Province .He lost an eye during an accident as a child.
Zhang’s mother called Peking University to ask if her son’s eye problem would make it difficult for him to accepted by the university’s Bio-chemistry Department. She was happy to find out that their choice of students would be based “fairly” on exam results.

Fred Michel is one of 7.2 million Americans who moonlight, or hold more than one job.
Once a week, after his day job as medical director of a mental health center, the 40-year-old psychiatrist(精神病大夫) heads to a part-time job at a treatment center for young people. Twice a month, he travels three hours to another teenage treatment center.
Last year, 5.4 percent of the American workforce held second jobs, according to the US Labor Department, and that looks set to increase this year.
Many workers like the safety that moonlighting provides, says Carl Hausamn, the writer of “Moonlighting: 148 Great Ways to Make Money on the Side.”
The information from he US Labor Department shows that 40 percent of US moonlighters in 1997 took a second job to meet household expenses or pay off debts. Others save money or buy some special things.
People also take second jobs with an eye to the future-wanting to try out a new field or gain experience.
Michel started moonlighting when medical systems were unstable(不稳定的). He wanted to make sure he wasn’t tied to one system that ended up failing.
Just as the purposes for moonlighting vary, the moonlighters cross all age and racial groups. And they work in a variety of industries-no longer just service, office and sale jobs.
“Technology just affects your ability to make money,” Hausman says. “That makes a frequent change in moonlighting.”
As its name means, moonlighting still occurs mostly at night. And that results in some pressures. Chief among them is time.
Full-time employers could misunderstand, too. Some companies do not allow after-hour work because they fear it will affect their employees’ 9-to-5 performance.
“The primary employer is saying, ‘Wait, I’m paying you for the sharp, fresh, energetic you,’” says Tom Gimbel, president and founder of LaSalle Staffing in Chicago. “If you’re burning yourself at both ends, It’s going to show.”
Still, the good done to the moonlighters can be great. Besides extra income, moonlighters enjoy variety , freedom and chance to do something new. They also may find their part-time jobs strengthen what they do full time.
Besides, “it’s fun,” Michel says. Not only do this part-time jobs offer a chance to network, stretch his professional skills and make more money, but they also give him the variety he wouldn’t find just in a full-time job.
“It’s a way of pulling from the spice cabinet,” he says, “and offering a little variety throughout the day.”
68. What is the article mainly about?
A. The ways of moonlighting.
B. The reasons for moonlighting .
C. The problems with moonlighting.
D. The kinds of people who moonlight.
69. The reason why Fred Michel began to moonlight is that ____.
A. he found it exciting to do a part-time job
B. he needed to make ends meet with more money
C. he feared he would lose his present job one day
D. he felt more and more pressure from his employer
70. Some companies don’t allow their workers to moonlight because they are afraid ___.
A. their workers can not do extra-hour work for them
B. their workers will be too tired to try their best at work
C. their workers will one day turn to some other different jobs
D. their workers will not get to work and be off work on time
71. The underlined sentence “It’s a way to of pulling from the spice cabinet.” In the last paragraph means___.
A. moonlighting gets you away from the job you don’t enjoy
B. moonlighting offers you freedom to make extra money
C. moonlighting strengthens your professional skills
moonlighting brings you chances to do something different
When he died in April of 1983,Dr. Joel Hildebrand was 101years old ,who had been married for seventy-five years ,and had taught freshman chemistry to over 40,000 college students. For his life ,he had published a popular chemistry textbook and dozens of articles ,had managed the U.S. Olympic ski team, and discovered a way to allow deep-sea divers to stay underwater longer .In his own way ,Dr. Hildebrand was certainly a genius.
Dr. Hildebrand’s interest in chemistry began at an early age. In an interview ,he once said that his interest had to make his own decision about what to pay attention to .Even as a student in high school, Dr. Hildebrand had the fame as the one who learned more chemistry than his teacher knew .As a result he was given the keys to the high school chemistry lab, and there he discovered that the correct formula(公式)for a certain chemical compound was not the one given in his chemistry book but a totally different one . Dr. Hildebrand went on to teach at the University of California at Berkeley and remained there for almost forty years.
During that time, Dr, Hildebrand discovered that the gas helium(氦)could be combined with oxygen for use as diving gas to allow divers to dive deeper and take the great pressure of the water without the physical discomforts that had been experienced when that used another gas , nitrogen. The use of helium for deep-sea diving is now standard practice .Dr. Hildebrand was also valuable to his country during both world wars .In World War I he analyzed the poisonous gases used on the battlefield and helped develop a truck that could clean and treat soldiers’ clothes which had been contaminated(弄脏)by poisonous gases during fighting. In World War II he helped develop a type of snowmobile ,a vehicle used to carry the soldiers through the snow in northern countries.
Dr. Hildebrand’s retirement(退休)from teaching at the age of seventy was required by state law in California. He objected to this ,joking he thought a teacher’s time of retirement ought to be determined not by age but by how many of that teacher’s students were still awake after the first fifteen minutes of class!
Dr. Hildebrand’s writing career continued ,however, and was still feeling strong at the age of 100,when he published an article on the theory of chemical solutions. Dr. Hildebrand’s love of life and his interest in it were an inspirations to all who knew him. When asked once how he could have such ageless energy and vigor, he said , “I chose my ancestors carefully.”
72.In the eyes of Dr. Hildebrand ,television was probably___.
A. a powerful tool for knowledge learning.
B. A favourable means to encourage learning.
C. Something that was not helpful to people’s attention
D. Something that man had to use in their daily life.
73. When Dr. Hildebrand was still a high school student, he was well known because ____.
A. he was good at chemistry.
B. Could use the chemistry as he liked.
C. His teachers were not so clever as he was.
D. Discovered the formula for some chemical compound(成分)
74. The use of helium in deep-sea diving ______.
A. is now still regarded as standard practice for deep-sea diving .
B. was discovered with the help of Dr. Hildebrand’s teachers.
C. Was a great help to the invention of snowmobiles.
D. Helped to make the divers love their job.

The Greatest Discovery of the Century
