    I was stuck in O'hare airport on an extremely long weather delay,pacing up and down the waiting hall for some exercise,when I passed a wine bar for the twentieth time or so. But this time there was a young woman behind the piano,playing what I could only describe as absolutely beautiful classical music. She had not been there ten minutes earlier when I passed.
    I sat down at an empty table for four very near the piano,and began to be warmed by her music and a bit by the wine! She played so effortlessly and with such beauty in every note. Her music immediately brought a huge smile to my face!
Soon,on a break,I thanked her and she told me that after a long day's traveling,and now also facing long weather delays,she just needed to relax herself. Wow! Her version of relaxing herself was exactly a gift to me.
    As I sat alone drinking my wine,absorbed in this young woman's celebration of her musical passion,two women approached my table and asked if they could join me. I invited them to sit and we immediately began sharing our love of music and celebrating the happiness the piano music was bringing us at that very enjoyable moment.
    The two women and I began to talk about our travels,life journeys,and passions. Hearing that unbelievable piano music,and then meeting such interesting women,who generously shared with me their wisdom,perspectives,and feelings of love for each other,was truly joyous. Faced with an 11-hour travel day—to get what normally takes 45 minutes—could have been physically and emotionally exhausting. Rather,by accident of walking by a wine bar at the right moment,and having a couple of seats open at my table,my life was filled with joy.
    I will cherish those moments for some time to come. This experience highlights (突出) the critical need in our lives to stop and listen to the music,to invite others to sit at your life table,to open yourself up to a stranger or two,sharing some of your deepest perspectives and experiences. Be open to noticing,absorbing,and also contributing to the joy around you!
1.Where did the author hear the young woman's performance?
A.In a wine bar.
B.On the plane.
C.Outside the waiting hall.
D.In a chatting room.
2.How long was the author's travel supposed to take without weather delay?
A.10 minutes.
B.20 minutes.
C.45 minutes.
D.11 hours
3.How did the author think about the experience in the airport?
A.Complex but unforgettable.
B.Boring and meaningless.
C.Long and tiring.
D.Joyful and meaningful.
4.The author writes the text in order to encourage people ________.
A.to share their experiences with others

    Home to me means a sense of familiarity and nostalgia(怀旧). It's fun to come home. It looks the same. It smells the same. You'll realize what's changed is you. Home is where we can remember pain,love,and some other experiences: We parted here; My parents met here; I won three championships here.
    If I close my eyes,I can still have a clear picture in mind of my first home. I walk in the door and see a brown sofa surrounding a low glass-top wooden table. To the right of the living room is my first bedroom. It's empty,but it's where my earliest memories are.
    There is the dining room table where I celebrated birthdays,and where I cried on Halloween—when I didn't want to wear the skirt my mother made for me. I always liked standing on that table because it made me feel tall and strong. If I sit at this table,I can see my favorite room in the house,my parents' room. It is simple: a brown wooden dresser lines the right side of the wall next to a television and a couple of photos of my grandparents on each side. Their bed is my safe zone. I can jump on it anytime—waking up my parents if I am scared or if I have an important announcement that cannot wait until the morning.
I'm lucky because I know my first home still exists. It exists in my mind and heart,on a physical property (住宅) on West 64th street on the western edge of Los Angeles. It is proof I lived,I grew and I learned.
    Sometimes when I feel lost,I lie down and shut my eyes,and I go home. I know it's where I'll find my family,my dogs,and my belongings. I purposely leave the window open at night because I know I'll be reproached by Mom. But I don't mind,because I want to hear her say my name,which reminds me I'm home.
1.Why does the author call her parents' bed her “safe zone”?
A.It is her favorite place to play.
B.Her parents always play together with her there.
C.Her grandparents' photos are lined on each side.
D.Her needs can be satisfied there.
2.What can be learned from the passage?
A.The old furniture is still in the author's first bedroom.
B.The author can still visit her first physical home in Los Angeles.
C.The author's favorite room in her first home is the dining room.
D.Many people of the author's age can still find their first physical homes.
3.Which of the following can replace the underlined word “reproached” in Paragraph 5?
A.punished
B.beat
C.blamed
D.teased
4.What is the author's purpose of writing this passage?
A.To look back on her childhood.
B.To declare how much she loves her first house.
C.To describe the state of her family.
D.To express how much she is attached to her home.

    Since the 1970s,scientists have been searching for ways to link the brain with computers. Brain Computer Interface(BCI) technology could help people with disabilities send commands to machines.
    Recently,two researchers,Jose Millan and Michele Tavella from the Federal Polytechnic School in Lausanne,Switzerland,demonstrated (展示) a small robotic wheelchair directed by a person's thoughts.
In the laboratory,Tavella operated the wheelchair just by thinking about moving his left or right hand. He could even talk as he watched the vehicle and guided it with his thoughts.
    “Our brain has billions of nerve cells. These send signals through the spinal cord (脊髓) to the muscles to give us the ability to move. But spinal cord injuries or other conditions can prevent these weak electrical signals from reaching the muscles.” Tavella says. “Our system allows disabled people to communicate with external world and also to control devices.”
    The researchers designed a special cap for the user. This head cover picks up the signals from the scalp (头皮) and sends them to a computer. The computer interprets the signals and commands the motorized wheelchair. The wheelchair also has two cameras that identify objects in its path. They help the computer react to commands from the brain.
    Prof. Millan,the team leader,says scientists keep improving the computer software that interprets brain signals and turns them into simple commands. “The practical possibilities that BCI technology offers to disabled people can be grouped in two categories: communication,and controlling devices. One example is this wheelchair.”
    He says his team has set two goals. One is testing with real patients,so as to prove that this is a technology they can benefit from. And the other is to guarantee that they can use the technology over long periods of time.
1.BCI is a technology that can ________.
A.help to update computer systems
B.control a person's thoughts
C.help the disabled to recover
D.link the human brain with computers
2.How did Tavella operate the wheelchair in the laboratory?
A.By controlling his muscles.
B.By talking to the machine.
C.By using his mind.
D.By moving his hand.
3.Which of the following shows the path of the signals described in Paragraph 5?
A.scalp→computer→cap→wheelchair
B.computer→cap→scalp→wheelchair
C.scalp→cap→computer→wheelchair
D.cap→computer→scalp→wheelchair
4.Which of the following would be the best title for the text?
A.Switzerland,the BCI Research Center
B.New Findings About How the Human Brain Works
C.Robotic Vehicles Could Help to Cure Brain Injuries
D.BCI Could Mean More Freedom for the Disabled

根据短文内容,从短文后的选项中选出能填入空白处的最佳选项。选项中有两项为多余选项。
    Some experts feel that cars are certain to fall into disuse. They see a day in the not­too­distant future when all cars will be deserted and made useless. ①They hold that the car will remain a leading means of city travel in the foreseeable future.
    The car will undoubtedly change greatly over the next 30 years. It should become smaller,safer,and more practical,and should not be powered by the gas engine.②
    Unless changes take place in the power system,the car in the future will still be the main problem in city traffic jams. ③
When the car enters the highway system,a small arm will drop from the car and connect with a rail,which is similar to hose(软管) powering subway trains electrically. Once joined to the rail,the car will become electrically powered from the system and control of the car will pass to a central computer. ④
    The driver will use the telephone to dial instructions about his position and the place he heads for into the system. The computer will find the best way and reserve space for the car all the way to the exit from the highway. ⑤
    It is believed that an automated highway will be able to deal with 10,000 cars per hour,compared with the 1,500 to 2,000 cars that can be carried by a present-day highway.
A.The driver will be free to relax and wait for the call that will warn him of his coming exit.
B.However,other experts think the car is here to stay.
C.The car of the future should be far more pollution-free than present types.
D.There will be plenty of policemen on the highway to control the traffic.
E.One suggested solution to this problem is the automated system which seems to hold water.
F.The computer will then monitor all the cars' movements.
G.All of the experts don't know what will happen in the future.
