Debate is a valuable way to practise communicating. It can also bring long-lasting rewards ,especially for people working with Western businesses. The main activity of debate is presenting one s opinion and supporting it with evidence ,such as stistics or facts. It is a way of persuasive communication.
Charles Lebeau helped create the Discover Debate method. He says debate is important tounderstanding how people communicate in Western business. Successful debaters learn how to givetheir opinion, reasons and support. What we are trying to do is to develop a kind of thinking orapproach to discussion and how to interact （ 交流） with someone else ' s opinion , rather than brushtheir opinion aside.
Debate skills are also important in selling a product , he says. In that situaton , the judges are thecustomers. “So on Monday ,for example , one company may come in and present their case to thecustomer and they I make as strong a case as they can. On Tuesday , the next day , another companywill come in and present their case to the customer. Usually the party that can present the strongest case wins.”
Debate also strengthens critical thinking. In other words , it helps students learn to ask questionsand try to understand someone s reasons and evidence.
Mr. Lebeau points out that successful debaters learn to listen carefully to what other people aresaying. Then, they look for the weak points in someone else ' s opinion or argument. He says debateteaches a systematic way of questioning. Successful debaters also learn to think from someone else' s point of view. Mr. Lebeau saysdebate can help broaden the mind. “There ' s an expression in English :don t critieize another personbefore you have walked in their shoes. I think the wonderful thing about debate is,it puts us inanother person ' s shoes.”

We all love a hero, and rescue dogs are some of the biggest heroes of all. You willoften find them going above and beyond duty to save someone ,risking—and at times losing—their lives in the process.
Rescue dogs are generally found in the Sporting and Hunting Groups , or from the traditional Herding Group. These types include the Bloodhound, Labrador Retriever, Newfoundland, GermanShepherd , Golden Retriever , and Belgian Malinois—all of which are chosen for search-and-rescueduty because of their amazing physical strength, loyalty , and their tendency for mental stability.
These types also have a keen sense of hearing and smell—to better locate lost individuals—and are often able to access hard-to-reach areas. As highly trained animals, they serve in many differentfields , including specialist search , snow slide rescue , dead body location , and tracking.
To overcome obstacles and succeed when performing the demanding duties of a search-and-rescueworker ,a dog must display certain qualities.

Eating an apple a day doesnt keep the doctor away ,but it does reduce the amount of trips youmake to the drug store per year. That s according to a new study that investigates whether there's any truth in the old saying. A teamof researchers led by Dr Matthew Davis, of the University of Michigan School ofNursing ,asked 8 ,399 participants to answer survey questions about diet and health. A total of 753wereapple eaters ,consuming at least 149g of raw apple per day. The remaining 7 ,646 were classedas non-apple eaters. When both groups answered questions on trips to the doctor and trips to the drug store per year, the apple eaters were found to be 27 % less likely to visit the druggist for drugs. Trips to the doctor were not significantly affected by apple consumption , though. Evidence doesnot support that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. However , the small number of US adults whoeat an apple a day does appear to use fewer prescription medications," the study concludes. Apple eaters were also found to be less likely to smoke and be more likely to have a highereducational attainment than non-apple eaters. While apples do not compete with oranges , they docontain some immune （ 免疫的） system-increasing vitamin c, which may be why ppe-eaters visitthe druggist less With over 8mg of vitamin c per medium-sized fruit, an apple can provide roughly14% your daily recommended intake. Previous sudes have also linked apler consumption to a lower risk of Type 2 dibetes （二型糖尿病）
improved lung function and a lower risk of colon （结肠） cancers.
44. How many non- aple eaters answered survey questions in the resarch?
A.149. B.7,646. C.753. D.8,399.

Sometimes I scratch my head when I read about the government s efforts to improve schools:new standards and tests to be applied , strict teacher evaluations , and threats of school closures andjob losses. They frighten the school employees , not to mention the students. Instead of making peopleunable to solve problems or try new ideas—which is what fear does to us—research on school reformstrongly suggests that policy-makers should encourage school leaders to take a more humaneapproach. In their study on the reform efforts of twelve Chicago public schools , Bryk and Schneiderfound that enabling positive social relationships between the adults was the key to successful schoolimprovement and that trust was at the heart of those relationships. Trust in schools comes down to one thing : psychological safety or safety to speak one ' s mind , todiscuss with openness and honesty what is and isn 't working , to make collective decisions. Yet this kind of safety doesn t come easily to schools. According to Bryk and Schneider, the adults in school rely on each other to do their jobs correctly and with integrity （ 正直） . The challenge is that our expectations are very diverse based on our unique backgrounds. At one school where I taught, each teacher had different expectations about how much extraeffort teachers should put into their work—a big difference between the teachers who left after thelast bell and those who worked into the evening. And when expectations are unconscious orunspoken , it becomes impossible for others to live up to them. We also make assumptions about the intentions behind a person s behavior. As we all know ,assumptions are often wrong. For example , parents and teachers may think the principal made aparticular decision based on his career advancement rather than whats best for the students. If wedont feel psychologically safe to question our assumptions and expectations, trust flies out thewindow and our relationships suffer.
48. According to Paragraph 1 , why does the author scratch his head?
A. Because he doesn t know what to do once schools are closed. B. Because he is not sure about the practicability of those new tests. C. Because he is concerned that many teachers will lose their jobs. D. Because he is not in favor of the govenment' s reform efforts.
49. According to Bryk and Schneider , what was most important for successful school improvement?
A. New standards and tests in schools. B. Positive social relationships. C. Strict teacher and student evaluations. D. Assistance of the govermment.
50. What is meant by trust in school?
A. Freedom to express one’S views. B. Extra effort teachers put into their work. C. Independence of the teachers in schools. D. Unconscious and unspoken expectations.
51. What does the author say about the assumptions made about the intentions behind a person' s behavior?
A. They should be trusted. B. They are often bold. C. They are often incorrect. D. They should be encouraged.
An interesting project called Blue Zones is recording the lifestyle secrets of the communiteswith the highest concentrations of centenarians in the world. The people in the five regions in Europe, Latin America, Asia and the US that live to be 100have a lot going for them. Genes probably play a small role, but these folks also have strong socialties ,tightly-knit families and lots of opportunities to exercise. As we were examining the dietary secrets of the Blue Zones, as described in author DanBuettner' s latest book
The Blue Zones Solution, we were struck by how essential tea drinking is inthese regions. In fact, Buttner' s Blue Zones Beverage Rule- -a kind of guideline summarized fromhis 15 or so years of studying these places- is: “Drink coffee for breakfast, tea in the aftermoon , wine at 5 p.m. Science has plenty to say about the healthful virtues of green tea. Researchers are most enthusi-astic about the components in green tea, as well as foods like cocoa. Why might they help so manyOkinawans in Japan break 100? Some components in green tea can lower the risk of stroke
heartdisease and several cancers. One review study also found that drinking green tea can slightly improvemetabolism （新陈代谢）。
If you find yourself on the island of Ikaria, the Greek Blue Zone in the middle of the Aegean,you won't be offered any tea made with tea leaves. Instead，
Ikarians typically make their daily cup oftea with just one fresh herb that they have picked themselves that day- either rosemary
wild sageoregano,marjoram,mint or dandelion, all plants that may have anti-inflammatory （ 消炎的） properties,which may help lower blood pressure. This could explain Ikaria's very low dementia （痴呆） rate,since high blood pressure is a risk factor for the disease.
52. What does the underlined word“centenarians" in Paragraph 1 refer to?
A. People who have secret lifestyles B. People who enjoy physical exercise. C. People who are one hundred years old or older. D. People who carry the gene for being slim.
53. According to Paragraph 3
what is the recommended time for tea drinking?
A. In the morming. B. Any time of a day. C. In the early evening. D. In the aftemoon.
54. What may the tea Ikarians drink daily help?
A. To improve metabolism. B. To lower blood pressure. C. To lower life stress. D. To improve social relationships.
55.What might be the best title of the passage?
A. Tea-Drinking Tips B. Lifestyle Secrets of Ikarians C. Tea-Drinking Ceremony in Okinawa D. Blue Zones Solutions
