Like distance runners on a measured course, all of us will move through time in a roughly predictable pattern.

In the first stage of our lives, we develop and grow, reaching toward the top of physical vitality (活力,生气).

After we grow up, however, the body begins a process of gradually wearing out.

A new awareness of physical fitness may help lengthen our years of health and vitality, yet nothing we do will work to stop the unavoidable force of aging.

Most of the changes of aging take place deep inside the body. The lungs become less able to take in oxygen. Powerful muscles gradually lose their strength. The heart loses power and pumps less blood. Bones grow easier to break.

Finally, we meet a stress, a stress that is greater than our physical resistance. Often, it is only a minor accident or chance infection (a disease caused by virus), but this time, it brings life to an end.

In 1932, a classic experiment nearly doubled the lifetime of rats, simply by cutting back the calories in their diet. The reason for the effect was then unknown.my,friend,had,a,chance,to

Today, at the University of California at Berkley. Dr. Paul Seagle has also greatly lengthened the normal lifetime of rats. The result was achieved through a special protein limited diet, which had a great effect on the chemistry of the brain. Seagle showed that within the brain, specific chemicals control many of the signals that influence aging. By changing that chemical balance, the clock of aging can be reset.

For the first time, the mystery of why we age is being seriously challenged. Scientists in many fields are now making striking and far-reaching discoveries.

An average lifetime lasts 75 years, yet in each of us lies a potential for a longer life. If we could keep the vitality and resistance to disease that we have at age twenty, we would live for 800 years.

The Pacific island nation of Nauru used to be a beautiful place. Now it is an ecological disaster area. Nauru’s heartbreaking story could have one good consequence — other countries might learn from its mistakes.

For thousand of years, Polynesian people lived in the remote island of Nauru, far from western civilization. The first European to arrive was John Feaarn in 1798. He was the British captain of the Hunter, a whaiing ship. He called the island Pleasant Island.my,friend,had,a,chance,to

However, because it was very remote, Nauru had little communication with Europeans at first. The whaling ships and other traders began to visit, bringing guns and alcohol. These elements destroyed the social balance of the twelve family groups on the island. A ten-year civil war started, which reduced the population from 1,400 to 900.

Nauru’s real troubles began in 1899 when a British mining company discovered phosphate (磷酸盐)on the island. In fact, it found that the island of Nauru was nearly all phosphate, which was a very important fertilizer for farming. The company began mining the phosphate.

A phosphate mine is not a hole in the ground; it is a strip mine. When a company strip-mines, it removes the top layer of soil. Then it takes away the material it wants. Strip mining totally destroys the land. Gradually, the lovely island of Nauru started to look like the moon.

In 1968, Nauru became one of the richest countries in the world. Every year the government received millions and millions of dollars for its phosphate.

Unfortunately, the leaders invested the money unwisely and lost millions of dollars. In addition, they used millions more dollars for personal expenses. Soon people realized that they had a terrible problem — their phosphate was running out. Ninety percent of their island was destroyed and they had nothing. By 2000, Nauru was financially ruined. Experts say that it would take approximately $433,600,000 and more than 20 years to repair the island. This will probably never happen.

36. What might be the author’s purpose in writing the text?

A. To seek help for Nauru’s problems. B. To tell a heartbreaking story of a war.

C. To show the importance of money D. To give a warning to other countries

37. What was Nauru like before the Europeans came?

A. Peaceful and attractive B. Modern and open

C. Rich and powerful

D. Greedy and aggressive

38. The ecological disaster in Nauru resulted from _______.

A. soil pollution B. phosphate overmining

C. farming activity D. whale hunting

39. Which of the following was a cause of Nauru’s financial problem?

A. Its phosphate mining cost much money

B. It spent too much repairing the island

C. Its leaders misused the money

D. It lost millions of dollars in the civil war.

40. What can we learn about Nauru from the last paragraph?

A. The leaders will take the experts’ words seriously.

B. The ecological damage is difficult to repair.

C. The island was abandoned by the Nauruans

D. The phosphate mines were destroyed

We lived in a very quiet neighborhood. One evening I heard a loud crash in the street. Earlier that evening my wife had asked me to go to the store to get some soft drinks. It seemed like this would be a good time to let my teenage daughter Holly practice her driving, so I sent her to the store in my truck.

At dinner my son talked about how much he liked my truck. I enjoyed having it, but I said, “Guy, my heart is not set on that truck. I like it but it is just mental and won’t last forever. Never set your heart on anything that won’t last.”

After hearing the loud noise, the whole family ran outside. My son shouted, “Dad! Dad, Holloy crashed your truck.”my,friend,had,a,chance,to

My heart sank and my mind was flooded with conflicting thoughts. Was anyone hurt? Who else was involved? As I ran to the door, I heard a voice in my heart say, “Here is a chance to show Holly what you really love. She’ll never forget it.”

The accident had occurred in my own driveway. Holly had crashed my truck into our other vehicle, the family van (搬运车). In her inexperience, she had confused the brakes and the gas pedal. Holly was unhurt physically, but when I reached her, she was crying and saying, “Oh, Dad, I’m sorry. I know how much you love this truck.” I held her in my arms as she cried.

Later that week a friend stopped by and asked what had happened to my truck. I told her the whole and she said, “That happened to me when I was a girl. I borrowed my dad’s car and ran into a log that had fallen across the road. I ruined the car. When I got home my dad knocked me to the ground and began to kick me.”

Over 40 years later, she still felt the pain of the night. It was a deep wound on her soul.

I remember how sad Holly was the night she crashed our truck, and how I comforted her. One day, when Holly thinks back on her life, I want her to know that I love her a thousand times more than any piece of property.

I repaired the van, but the dent (凹痕) in my truck is still there today. Every day it reminds me of what really matters in my life.

41. Which of the following can best serve as the title of the passage?

A. All Is Well That Ends Well
