Doctor are known to be terrible pilots. They don't listen because they already know it all. I was lucky: ] became a pilot in 1970, almost ten years before I graduated from medical school. I didn't realize then, but becoming a pilot makes me a better surgeon. I loved flying. As I flew bigger, faster planes, and in worse weather. I learned about crew resource management (机组资源管理), or CRM, a new idea to make flying safer. It means that crew members should listen and speak up for a good result, regardless of positions.
I first read about CRM in 1980. Not long after that, an attending doctor and I were flying in bad weather. The controller had us turn too late to get our landing ready. The attending doctor was flying; I was safety pilot He was so busy because of the bad turn, he had forgotten to put the landing gear (起落架) down. He was a better pilot - and my boss - so it felt unusual to speak up. But I had to: Our lives were in danger. I put aside my uneasiness and said, "We need to put the landing gear down now!" That was my first real lesson in the power
of CRM, and I've used it in the operating room ever since.
CRM requires that the pilot/surgeon encourage others to speak up. It further requires that when opinions are from the opposite, the doctor doesn't overreact, which might prevent fellow doctors from voicing opinions again. So when I'm in the operating room, I ask for ideas and help from others. Sometimes they're not willing to speak up. But I hope that if I continue to encourage them , someday someone will keep me from ”landing gear up”.
56.What does the author say about doctors in general?
A. They like flying by themselves. B. They are unwilling to take advice.
C. They pretend to be good pilots. D. They are quick learners of CRM.

A. he saved the plane by speaking up B. he was in charge of a flying task
C. his boss landed the plane too late D. his boss operated on a patient
58.In the last paragraph” landing gear up” probably means ______.
A. following flying requirements. B. overreacting to different opinions.
C. listening to what fellow doctors say D. making a mistake that may cost lives
59.Which of the following can be the best title for the text?
A.CRM:A New Way to Make Flying Safe B. Flying Makes Me a Better Doctor
C. The Making of a Good Pilot D.A Pilot-Turned Doctor
In 1947 a group of famous people from the art world headed by an Austrian conductor decided to hold an international festival of music, dance and theatre in Edinburgh. The idea was to reunite Europe after the Second World War.
At the same time, the “Fringe” appeared as a challenge to the official festival. Eight theatre groups turned up uninvited in 1947,in the belief that everyone should have the right to perform, and they did so in a public house disused for years.
Soon, groups of students firstly from Edinburgh University, and later from the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, Durham and Birmingham were making the journey to the Scottish capital each summer to perform theatre by little-known writers of plays in small church halls to the people of Edinburgh.
Today the “Fringe”, once less recognized, has far outgrown the festival with around 1,500 performances of theatre, music and dance on every one of the 21 days it lasts. And years early as 1959, with only 19 theatre groups performing, some said it was getting too big.
A paid administrator was first employed only in 1971, and today there are eight administrators working all year round and the number rises to 150 during August itself. In 2004 there were 200 places housing 1,695 shows by over 600 different groups from 50 different countries. More than 1.25 million tickets were sold.

Given that many people's moods (情绪)are regulated by the chemical action of chocolate, it was probably only a matter of time before somebody made the chocolate shop similar to a drugstore of Chinese medicine. Looking like a setting from the film Charlie &the Chocolate Factory, Singapore's Chocolate Research Facility (CRF) has over 100 varieties of chocolates. its founder is Chris Lee who grew up at his parents' comer store with one hand almost always in the jar of sweets.
If the CRF seems to be a smart idea, that's because Lee is not merely a seasoned salesperson but also head of a marketing department that has business relations with big names such as Levi's and Sony. That idea surely results in the imagination at work when it comes to making different flavored(味道)chocolates.
The CRF's produce is "green". made within the country and divided into 10 lines, with the Alcohol Series being the most popular. The Exotic Series一with Sichuan pepper, red bean (豆).cheese and other flavors一also does well and is fun to taste. And for chocolate snobs, who think that they have a better knowledge of chocolate than others, the Connoisseur Series uses cocoa beans from Togo, Cuba, Venezuela , and Ghana, among others.
64. What is good about chocolate?
A. It serves as a suitable gift. B. It works as an effective medicine.
C. It helps improve the state of mind. D. It strengthens business relations.
65. Why is Chris Lee able to develop his idea of the CRF?
A. He knows the importance of research. B. He learns form shops of similar types.
C. He has the support of many big names D. He has a lot of marketing experience.
66. Which line of the CRF produce sells best?
A. The Connoisseur Series. B. The Exotic Series.
C. The Alcohol Series. D. The Sichuan Series.
67. The words "chocolate snobs" in Paragraph 3 probably refer to people who
A. are particular about chocolate B. know little about cocoa beans
C. look down upon others D. like to try new flavors

The oldest and most common source(来源) of renewable energy known to man, biomass is one of the most important forms energy production in the United States and elsewhere. Since such a wide variety of biomass materials is everywhere —- from trees and grasses to agricultural and city —- life wastes —-biomass promises to play a continuing role in providing power and heat for millions of people around the world.
According to the Union of Concerned Scientists(UCS), biomass is a kind of renewable energy source that produces no carbon dioxide(二氧化碳), because the energy it contains comes from the sun. When plant matter is burned, it gives off the sun’s energy. In this way, biomass serves as a sort of natural battery(电池) for storing the sun’s energy. As long as biomass is produced continuously —-with only as much grown as is used— the “battery” lasts forever.
According to the Energy Information Administration, biomass has been one of the leading renewable energy sources in the United States for several years running through 2007, making up between 0.5 and 0.9 percent of the nation’s total electricity supply. In 2008—-although the numbers aren’t all in yet—-wind power probably took over first place because of the rapid development of wind farms across the country.
Producing power from biomass helps reduce some 11 million tons of carbon dioxide each year. Some homeowners also try to make their own heat by using biomass materials. Such practice may save homeowner’s money, but it also produces a lot of pollution. So, the best way is to encourage power plants to use it.
72. Why is biomass considered as “ a sort of natural battery”?
A. It burns merely plant matter. B. It keeps producing electricity.
C. It stores the energy from the sun. D. It produces zero carbon dioxide.
73. We learn from the text that in 2008 ______.
A. Wind power would be the leader of renewable energy.
B. there was a rapid growth of electricity production
C. biomass might become the main energy source
D. 0.5~0.9 of power supply came from biomass
74. Why does the author encourage power plants to use biomass?
A. To prevent the waste of energy. B. To increase production safety.
C. To reduce pollution. D. To save money.
75. Where does the text probably come from?
A. A research plan. B. A science magazine
C. A book review. D. A business report.
