    My 11-year-old daughter has been awarded an academic scholarship to a private school. It’s only a small discount, but the scholarship means she’ll skip the waiting list ---provided my husband and I can cover $20,000 a year.
    Should we pay the private school fees, or choose free education instead?
    I always assumed my children would go to a private school, like I did. Not because my family is wealthy, but because I believe that the best education is private.
    It took years for me to make peace with the fact that my two children attended our local public primary school.
    They’ll go to a private high school, I told myself. Yet here we are. My eldest is now in her last year of primary school, and my husband and I will struggle to afford private school.
    If we’re to send our girl to private school, I could increase my work hours. My law degree was supposed to be my ticket to a good job and a solid income, but that’s not quite how it turned out.
    The guilt and expectations are mine alone. I’m terrified that my daughter’s potential will be wasted at the public school. And yet, I know that working more hours will crush (压垮) me.
    During many sleepless nights, I felt troubled by the decision.
    Although I want the best for my daughter, I have my own dreams too. I can’t sacrifice everything for my precious girl.
    I explain that I want to be a positive role model for my daughter, and an unhappy parent is a terrible strain on a family.
    I point out that not even the privilege of private school will protect my children from disappointment or struggle.
   And finally, it’s decided. My daughter is going to the public school behind our home. She couldn’t be more pleased.
    It’s taken me a little longer, but now I’m content. More than my fancy private school education, it’s my family that shaped me. With high school now 25 years in the past, I can no longer remember the mathematical problems and Shakespearean quotes I once knew so perfectly. The lessons from my childhood home, however, have proved impossible to forget.
1.Why did the author want her daughter to go to a private school at first?
A.Because her daughter earned an academic scholarship.
B.Because she wanted her daughter to receive the best education.
C.Because she wanted her daughter to skip the waiting list.
D.Because her daughter’s potential was wasted at the public primary school.
2.The author decided her daughter to go to a public school mainly because she realized that ______.
A.private school doesn’t guarantee a solid income
B.she didn’t want her daughter to struggle in private school
C.however hard she worked, she couldn’t afford private school
D.public school is the most balanced choice for her family
3.When the decision was made, ______.
A.the author’s daughter was disappointed
B.the author felt sorry and guilty about it
C.both the author and her daughter were content with the result
D.the author encouraged her daughter to be a role model at schoo
4.What is the main message the author intends to convey in the last paragraph?

B.The lessons learned during our childhood will stay with us forever.
C.It always takes people a long time to make a right decision.

    Have you ever dreamed of visiting a planet in the Milky Way (银河系)? While the trip sounds exciting, it would take years and years to reach your destination. So in the future, bedtime for astronauts may be more than a few hours of regular shut eyes. They would have to sleep for years.
    European researchers are now conducting hibernation experiments. The study may help them understand whether humans could ever sleep through the years it would take for a spaceflight to distant planets. "If there was an effective technology, it could make deep space travel a reality," said Mark Ayre of the European Space Agency last month.
    What seems like a science fiction is not completely unlikely. Researchers have been able to use chemicals to put living cells into a sleeplike state where they don’t age. They have now moved on to the small, non-hibernating mammals like rats.
    A major challenge is the fact that cells can be very simple systems, whereas body organs are far more complex. "It’s like moving from a simple Apple computer to a supercomputer," said Marco Biggiogera, a hibernation researcher at Italy’s University of Pavia. Just like bears and frogs, the hibernation of human beings would cause a person’s metabolism (新陈代谢) to be a lower level so they would need less energy.
    Medical research, however, is just half of a spaceflight hibernation system. There is a challenge of designing a suitable protective shelter. Such a shelter would provide the proper environment for hibernation, such as the proper temperature. It would also have to monitor life functions and serve the physiological needs of the hibernator.
    According to Ayre, the Human Outer Planets Exploration Mission to Jupiter’s moon (木星的卫星) Callisto, could be an opportunity to use human hibernation. The mission aims to send six persons on a five-year-flight to Callisto, where they will spend 30 days, in 2045.
1.According to the article, the hibernation research _______.
A.has made some progress
B.is carried out in the U.S.A.
C.will put into practice in 2045
D.gets the idea from a science fiction
2.According to the article, what can be concluded from Marco’s comparison?
A.Cells in different body organs work in the same way.
B.What works in cells may be quite difficult for the organs.
C.The hibernation of humans can help save human beings' energy.
D.The deep space travel may be possible if hibernation research is successful.
3.What is the best title of the article?
A.Hibernation and Long Life in Space
B.Welcome to the Milky Way
C.To hibernate, to live longer
D.Hibernation study for space travel

    Phantom vibrations---the phenomenon where you think your phone is vibrating but it's not---have been around since the mobile age. Today, they’re so common that researchers have devoted studies to them.
    For Valerie Kusler, who works on a cattle farm, the feeling is complicated by the cows. “The cows’ moo is very muffled, it kinda sounds like…errrr,” she says.“So that's very similar to what my phone sounds like when it vibrates on my desk or in my purse.”
    Other people may not confuse cows for their phones, but research shows phantom vibration symptom is a near-universal experience for people with smartphones.
    Nearly 90 percent of college undergraduates in a 2012 study said they felt phantom vibrations. The number was just as high for a survey of hospital workers, who reported feeling phantom vibrations on either a weekly or monthly basis.
    “Something in your brain is being triggered(触发)that's different than what was triggered just a few short years ago,” says Dr Larry Rosen, a research psychologist who studies how technology affects our minds.
     “If you'd asked me 10 years ago, or maybe even five years ago if I felt an itch beneath where my pocket of my jeans was, and asked me what I would do, I'd reach down and scratch it because it was probably a little itch caused by the neurons firing(神经元刺激),” he says. Now, of course, the itch triggers him to reach for his phone. Rosen says it's an example of how our devices are changing how our brains process information.
    “we’re seeing a lot of what looks like obsessive behavior. People who are constantly picking up their phone look like they have an obsession. They don't look much different from someone who's constantly washing their hands. I’m not saying that it is an obsession, but I’m saying that it could turn into one, very easily,” Rosen says. While 9 out of 10 participants in the study of college students said the vibration feeling bothered them only a little or not at all, Rosen still recommends backing away from our phones every once in a while to keep our anxiety levels down.
    “One of the things I’m really adamant about in spite of being very pro-technology, is just away from the technology for short periods,” Rosen says. “And by short periods. I mean, maybe just 30 minutes or an hour”.
1.According to the article, phantom vibrations_____.
A.are mainly caused by neurons firing
B.affect people mostly working on farms
C.help our brains better process information
D.started troubling people in recent years
2.The underlined word "adamant" in the last paragraph probably means_____.
A.curious
B.determined
C.satisfied
D.cautious
3.It can be concluded from Larry Rosen's research that_____.
A.phantom vibrations could probably result in obsessive behavior
B.the use of smart phones has completely changed the way our minds work
C.most people feel uncomfortable when they experience phantom vibrations
D.hospital workers are more likely to suffer from phantom vibrations than students
4.According to Larry Rosen, the most effective measure against phantom vibrations is to_____.
A.move to a quieter neighborhood
B.stop using smartphones in poor condition
C.take a break from using smartphones occasionally
D.keep a close watch on your anxiety levels

    Ways to Be More Aware of Your Emotions
    Emotional awareness comes more easily to some people than others. The good news is that it's a skill that anyone can practice. Here are a few ways to help you become more in touch with your emotions.
    Notice and name your emotions.
    ①Name them to yourself. For example, you might say “I feel proud" when a class presentation goes well, “I feel disappointed" when not doing well on a test or “I feel friendly” when sitting with a group at lunch.
    Track one emotion.
    Pick a familiar emotion---like joy---and track it throughout the day. ②Whenever that emotion shows up, you can simply make a mental note to yourself or jot(草草记下) it down in a journal. Notice where you are, who you're with and what you're doing when that emotion is present.
    ③
    How many emotions can you name? Try going through the alphabet and thinking of one emotion for each letter.
    Keep a feelings journal.
    Take a few minutes each day to write about how you feel and why. Journaling about your experiences and feelings builds emotional awareness.④Make art, write poetry or compose music that captures a specific emotion you're feeing.
    There're lots more you can try, of course. For example, you can try identifying the emotions an artist is trying to convey as you read poetry or listen to music. ⑤
A. Build your emotional vocabulary.
B. They’ll help you to know yourself.
C. Notice how often you feel it and when.
D. Know what we want and make choices.
E. Then recognize how you feel in response.
F. You also can express an emotion creatively.
G. Start by just realizing different emotions as you feel them.

    B.F.Skinner, the world-famous psychologist, discovered that an animal rewarded for good behavior learns more rapidly than an animal punished for bad behavior. Later studies have shown that the same is true of human beings.

Instead, he put his big arm around the young man’s shoulder and said, “To show    19    I’m sure that you’ll never do this again, I want you to service my F-51 tomorrow.”

    Not many of us could remember what we eat for lunch a week ago. You may think that being forgetful is a bad thing, and according to a recent study, it’s perfect healthy. Scientists found that forget things is actually a key part of learning. Getting rid of necessary information can help our brains work better. In an environment that’s always changing, our brain may require us to remember less. For example, the supermarket cashier meets many people every day and will probably only remember each person for a short time. There’s a special area in our brains calling the hippocampus (海马体), which is the part of the brain that allows us to learn and remember things. When new neurons created in the hippocampus, they overwrite our old memories. This could explain that why we often have very little memories of being very young.
