Is it worth it to go to college? This has been questioned a lot recently in America. According to a new survey released by the Pew Research Center, only 40 percent of Americans felt that colleges provided a good value for the cost. At the same time, 86 percent of college graduates still felt it was good for them.
There are a number of reasons for such dissatisfaction with college. First, there are plenty of problems with higher education --- poor quality and out-of-control costs are two of the biggest. Second, it is true that college is not for everyone. Plenty of rewarding and important careers do not require college. And due to the slow economy, there may in fact be more graduates than the current job market needs. Besides, anti-college feelings are nothing new. Today, Microsoft's Bill Gates or Apple's Steve Jobs --- both college dropouts--- is often held up as evidence of why all that time sitting in class is better spent elsewhere.
However, getting a college education is still a good idea. College graduates earn more, and are more likely to have a job in the first place. According to the statistics last year, the average weekly earnings for someone with some college education but no degrees were $712, compared to $1,038 for a college graduate. That is almost $17,000 over the course of a year and there is an even bigger divide for those with less education. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate was 9.2 percent for those with only some college education and more than 10 percent for those with just a middle school degree, but it was 5.4 percent for college graduates. The economic gaps between college completers and those with less education are getting larger.
Although most Americans surveyed by Pew feel doubtful about the value of a college degree, an overwhelming majority of parents Pew surveyed still expect their children to go to college. "It can be inferred that the increased doubt has not significantly influenced decision making," Pew's Taylor says. "Despite the concern about rising costs and other problems, college remains a universal desire in this country."
31. Recently many Americans question_______.
A. the value of receiving college education B. the ability of college graduates
C. the quality of college education D. the high cost of a college degree
32. According to the passage, Bill Gates was______.
A. a self-taught college student B. a hardworking undergraduate
C. a successful college dropout D. a unsuccessful college graduate
33. The writer seems to agree that______.
A. there is no need to go to college B. anti-college feelings are a new thing
C. college cannot guarantee employment D. college education remains a wise choice
34. Which of the following is NOT true according to the passage?
A. The slow economy might result in more unemployment.
B. Most college graduates feel it necessary to receive college education.
C．People's earnings depend on their educational background to some extent.
D. As doubts about college education arise, people's desire to go to college weakens.
35. What's the main idea of this passage?
A．Poor quality and high costs make college less popular among the Americans nowadays.
B. Despite the dissatisfactions with college, most Americans still favor college education
C. People with a college degree earn better money in America than those who don't.
D. American students are getting tired of college education.
Every American family has its own traditions on Thanksgiving Day, and mine is no difference. Once the national holiday arrives, my mom rises early to make the meal. She puts a turkey in the oven, chops carrots and bakes pies. I’m sorry to say that the men in the family—my dad, my younger brother and myself—rarely pitch in to help. Our job is to wash the mountain of dirty dishes after the meal is over.
Around 2 p.m. every Thanksgiving Day, family members seat themselves around the kitchen table. Plates of turkey, vegetables, salad, rolls and pies cover it. At this point, we can hardly keep ourselves from drooling (流口水) all over our fancy clothes, but it’s not yet time to eat.
First, we must bow our heads, close our eyes and say a prayer of thanks aloud to God for giving us everything we have. Under normal circumstances, I would have no problem making a list of things I am thankful for. I grew up in a loving family. My parents, who aren’t wealthy, took out loans to help me pay for university.
But, the funny thing is, every time I sit down for Thanksgiving dinner and try to say a prayer of thanks, my mind usually goes blank. I think it has something to do with my growling (咕咕叫) stomach and all of that food sitting right there under my nose.
Eventually, though, we all finish our short prayers and dig in. To be sure, the day
includes other highlights—visiting with family and watching football. But usually around 6 p.m. we are all ourselves stuffed like turkeys and thankful to have a nice warm bed to sleep in.

Can you imagine living without cars, computers or telephones? Some people in the rain forest and mountains of Venezuela and Brazil do just that. One tribe (部落), the Yanomami, has lived the same way for thousands of years. They only have numbers for one, two and more than two, and they have never invented the wheel. But they have also been called some of "the last free people on earth. "
In the late 1920s, researchers found a tribe of people untouched by modern society. This was the first reported meeting with the Yanomami, who were living deep within the South American jungle.
Scientists agree that their location deep in the forest helped their culture unchanged. Until recently, most Yanomami still lived in isolated regions. Everything they needed came from the rain forest. They hunted, fished and farmed the land. Then a discovery brought the outside world to them. And along with came deadly changes.
Gold was discovered in Yanomami in the 1970s. By 1987, around 80,000 miners had moved into the area. In a fight to take over the land, they killed some Yanomami. They also brought into new sicknesses, including the common cold and malaria. Today over 62 percent of Yanomami show signs of malaria.

Do you know anything about the history of weather? Don’t look at the sky．Don’t look for old weather reports．Looking at the tree rings is more important．Correct weather reports date back only one century, but some trees can provide an exact record of weather even further back．
It is natural that a tree would grow best in a climate with plenty of sunlight and rainfall．It is also expected that little sunlight or rainfall would reduce the growth of a tree．The change from a favorable to an unfavorable climate can be found out by the reading pattern of rings in a tree trunk．To find out the weather of ten years ago, you can count the rings of a tree trunk from the outside to the inside．If the tenth ring is far from the other rings, then it is certain that plenty of sunny and rainy weather occurred．If the rings are close together, then the climate was bad for the tree．
Studying trees is important not only for the history of weather, but also for the history of man. In an area of New Mexico you can find only sand----no trees or people. However, many centuries ago a large population lived there. They left suddenly. Why?
A scientist studied the pattern of the rings of dead trees that had grown there．He made up his mind that the people had to leave because they had cut down all the trees．Trees were necessary to make fires and buildings．So, after the people destroyed the trees, they had to move．
In this example studying tree rings uncovered an exciting fact about the history of man．
