The morning after an evening struggle to care for my three-year-old daughter, I couldn"t wait to get her to school. I, as a mother, was tired of the anger and her inability to communicate because of her slowed language development.

As I accompanied her into the car, I felt desperate. Nothing was right with our world. She"d been born around the same time when the nation was witnessing the birth of another Great Recession. My job and my house had been victims. Then this happened. My child"s language delay was identified, but doctors struggled to properly help her. I felt like we both needed to be rescued.

I returned that afternoon as disenchanted with the little girl I loved as when I left. Walking slowly toward the school"s playground gate, I found her preschool teacher racing to greet me.

"You should have seen her today!"His breathy words were supported by excitement. I didn"t interrupt. "See that climber," He pointed to a wooden piece of playground equipment that looked like a rock wall. I nodded. "Well, every day since she started school, she"s tried and failed to make it to the top." He took a breath. "And today she did it!"

He expressed his joy just as he"d witnessed her conquering Mount Everest!"She cheered and celebrated! I wish I"d recorded it!" His words comforted me. My daughter had conquered her mountain.

As she ran toward me, I recognized something I hadn"t before. I saw her perseverance(毅力). I saw her strength. I saw a hero.

The regular world presented to us by our five senses—you could call it reality 1.0—is not always the most user-friendly of places. We get lost in unfamiliar cities;we meet people whose language we don"t understand. So why not try the improved version: augmented reality (AR) or reality 2.0? AR technology adds computer-produced images (图像) on the real world via a mobile phone camera or special video glasses.

Early forms of AR are already here. With the right downloads, smartphones can deliver information about nearby ATMs, restaurants and other points of interest. But that"s just the beginning. A few years from now the quantity of information available will have increased hugely. You will not only see that there"s a Chinese restaurant on the next block, but you will be able to see the menu and read reviews of it.

This is where the next revolution in computing will take place: in the interface (界面) between the real world and the information brought to us via the Internet. Imagine bubbles floating before your eyes, filled with cool information about anything and everything that you see in front of you.

Let"s jump ahead to ten years from now. A person trying to fix his car won"t be reading a book with pictures;he will be wearing a device that projects animated 3D computer graphics onto the equipment under repair, labelling parts and giving step-by-step guidance.

The window onto the AR world can be a smartphone or special video glasses. But in ten years these will have been replaced by contact lenses (隐形眼镜) with tiny LEDs, which present something at a readable distance in front of the eye. So a deaf person wearing these lenses will be able to see what people are saying.

The question is, while we are all absorbed in our new augmented reality worlds, how will we be communicating with each other?

8.What does the text mainly talk about?

A.The next information technology revolution.

B.Early forms of augmented reality technology.

C.The differences between reality 1.0 and reality 2.0.

D.The relationship between people living in reality 2.0.

9.What does the underlined word "it" refer to in Paragraph 2?

A.The menu.B.The block.C.The revolution.D.The restaurant.

10.What are tiny LEDs used to do?

A.Protect people"s eyes.

B.Show text and images.

C.Warn users of dangers.

D.Replace video glasses.

11.What"s the author"s attitude towards AR technology?

DNA analysis has revealed family relationships between more than 10 generations of Stone Age people at megalithic (巨石的) tombs in Ireland and Sweden.

The evidence suggests that megaliths, prehistoric large stone structures, sometimes acted as graves for family groups in northwestern Europe thousands of years ago. The latest findings throw new light on the origins and social structure of the groups that built megaliths in this region—a history that has long been hidden in mystery.

For their study, the international team of researchers analyzed the genomes—the complete set of genetic material in a cell—of 24 Stone Age individuals from five megalithic burial sites in Ireland, Scotland and Gotland, a large Swedish island in the Baltic Sea.

This analysis showed that many of the individuals buried at each megalith, who all lived between 3,800 B.C. and 2,600 B.C., according to radiocarbon-dating of their remains, were closely related via family ties.

The results also showed that the individuals buried at the megaliths were related to Neolithic farmers in northern and western Europe but genetically distinct from other hunter-gatherers. This was particularly noticeable at the Ansarve site on the island of Gotland.

"The people buried in the Ansarve tomb are remarkably different on a genetic level compared to the individuals dug out from hunter-gather contexts, showing that the burial tradition in this megalithic tomb, which lasted for over 700 years, was performed by distinct groups with roots in the European Neolithic expansion," Magdalena Fraser, co-first author from Uppsala University, said in the statement.

12. What"s the significance of the new findings?

A. It reveals the family ties between people in Ireland and Sweden.

B. It implies that many people buried in the tombs were closely related.

C. It indicates the long-hidden mystery concerning DNA analysis.

D. It suggests that the megaliths became tombs thousands of years ago.

13. How did the researchers reach their findings?

A. By interviewing individuals. B. By travelling to different regions.

C. By analyzing genes. D. By studying the burial sites.

14. Which is true according to the latest findings?

A. Some people buried in the tombs were related to farmers.

B. Few people buried in the tombs were genetically different.

C. All the people buried at megaliths had family relationships.

D. People buried in the Ansarve tomb were dug out 700 years later.

15. What"s the main idea of this passage?

A. Megaliths served as tombs thousands of years ago.

B. People buried at the megaliths were recently analyzed.

C. Latest findings shed light on a mystery about burials.

D. Stone-Age people in Ireland and Sweden had close ties.

读后续写 阅读下面短文,根据所给情节进行续写,使之构成一个完整的故事。

Laurie sat quietly in the empty dressing room. She had not competed since the accident. As she waited for her turn to skate, Laurie was very nervous. Today was very important in her comeback (复出). "If I can win today," she thought, "I can skate in the World Cup next year."

Before Laurie had her accident, everyone had said that she was the one to beat.

She thought back to that car accident where her right knee was badly injured. She spent six total months on recovery, treatment and practice because she hoped to regain her skill.

"Hello, Laurie," one of her friends burst in. "How"s the knee? Is it going to slow you down?"

"I guess we"ll find out tonight," Laurie said.

"There"s a girl named Jinny, strong in everything. She"s the only real competitor you have to beat," the friend said and hurried out.

Hearing that, Laurie decided to show her most difficult jump. "If I don"t try it, I won"t stand a chance," she thought. "Does anyone believe that I can still win?"

Suddenly her right knee sent pain up and down her leg. The doctor said it would do that for a while. "What makes you think you have a chance tonight?" she said to herself.

After the pain passed, she moved slowly to warm up. Then she said firmly, "I must win!"

At that moment, a young woman hurried in with a skate equipment bag. She put some of her belongings onto a chair. Her bag fell to the floor. "Hi, I"m Jinny Jordan," she said.

Laurie felt uncomfortable as she looked at Jinny. "So this is my competitor," thought Laurie. "Because of her, I may lose tonight."

"I"m Laurie Collins," Laurie told Jinny. "Something fell out of your bag, Jinny."

As Jinny began to gather her belongings, the door opened.

"Jinny," someone called, "your tape of music is missing. You are the next one! Laurie, after Jinny."

"Oh, my God! I thought I had handed it in hours ago, the green box with my name on," screamed Jinny, hurrying out.




Paragraph 1:

"Music is so important to the skating," Laurie said thoughtfully, doing some preparation alone in the dressing room.


Paragraph 2:

Minutes later, Laurie glided to the centre of the stadium when her name was called.

"Music is so important to the skating," Laurie said thoughtfully, doing some preparation alone in the dressing room. Suddenly, she saw something under a chair. She bent over to pick it up. "Jinny"s green box" she exclaimed. "it must have rolled out of her bag." Laurie stood motionlessly, "if Jinny doesn"t have her music. She will lose She Is my only real competitor." Laurie shivered slightly as she thought about this. Then she wondered, "Do! really want to win so much?" Laurie hesitated for a second. Then she hurried out to give Jinny her music tape. Jinny was grateful to Laurie, and finished the skating successfully.

Paragraph 2:

Minutes later Laurie glided to the centre of the stadium when her name was called. Nervous as she was, she tried to skate in time with her music. Then she did her most difficult jump. "Good," she thought to herself, "my right knee"s holding up." As the music ended, applause filled the stadium. When the marks appeared, Laurie knew she achieved her goal. As she walked back to the dressing room, Laurie thought about Jinny"s music tape. No one will know how close I really came to losing," Laurie said softly to herself.
