There's a great article in the New York Times this week about the tradition of buying a coffee for (暂留的) coffee" in its birthplace. In some cafes, folks in need may claim a suspended coffee and drink it without cost.
No doubt the free coffee will be welcomed by people who love coffee but for one reason or another don't have the money to buy one. But I also like the opportunity it offers customers to become philanthropists (慈善家). Every time they order a coffee, they can give one to somebody in need.
This is a tradition that began some 100 years ago in Naples, Italy. In Naples, as reported by the Times, people love this kind of giving:
"To me, the philosophy of the suspended coffee is that you are happy today, and you give a coffee to the world, as a present." — Luigi Solito
"It's a simple act of generosity: an act in which donors and recipients (接受者) never meet each other. The donor doesn't show off and the recipient doesn't have to show gratitude." —Laura Cozzolino
"Coffee consumptions started earlier than the unification (统一) of Italy by more than 200 years, so the traditions around it are very ancient. In Naples, coffee is a world in itself, both culturally and socially." — Andrea Illy
The practice of buying suspended coffees has grown in popularity — with websites popping up and hundreds of cafes from Canada to Brazil to Hungary to the US offering the service.
1. Who are suspended coffees intended for?
A. Cafe goers. B. People who can't afford a coffee.
B. Philanthropists. D. Coffee lovers who live in Naples.
2. How can someone get a suspended coffee?
A. He can ask for one in any cafe.
B. He can apply for one on websites.
C. He can buy one in a cafe offering the service.
D. He can drink one in a cafe that has prepaid coffees.
3. What does Laura Cozzolino think of buying suspended coffees?
A. She thinks it is a great way of charity.
B. She thinks it is a cheap gift to strangers.
C. She thinks it is an ancient Italian custom.
D. She thinks it is spreading widely in the world.
4. The underlined words in Paragraph 1 are words of ______.
A. French B. Old English C. Italian D. American English
If the hackings (黑客行为) taught us anything in 2014, it's actually nothing.
Password management firm SplashData released its list of the worst passwords of the year and it's just as terrible as you'd think. The most common leaked password in 2014 was "123456," followed by "password" — both topped the list the year before, too.
While numbers were as popular as ever as passwords, sports terms like “baseball" and "football" were used more often. Birthday years were common too (especially 1989, 1990, 1991 and 1992) and names like "Michael", "Jennifer" and "Hunter" are also among the top 100 worst passwords of 2014.
Here's a look at the top 10 worst passwords of the year:
1. 123456 (Unchanged from 2013) 6. 234567890 (Unchanged)
2. password (Unchanged) 7. baseball (New)
3. 12345 (Up 17) 8. dragon (New)
4. 12345678 (Down 1) 9. football (New)
5. qwerty (Down 1) 10. monkey (New)
This year's worst passwords are painfully weak, but what were once considered clever password strategies — using symbols, capitalizations, the number 3 in place of the letter "e" — are old tricks.
It's now recommended to pick a different password for each account you use — you wouldn't use the same key in all of your locks, and the same goes for passwords.
Companies like Facebook, Twitter and Apple are now trying to make hacking more difficult on their services by offering two-factor authentication (认证), which is basically like double locking your door at night. Each time you want to log into (登录) that account, the company will send a code to your phone — it changes after each login attempt, so hackers would have to be in physical possession of your smartphone to know the code.
5. What can we learn from the text?
A. Hackers leaked many more passwords in 2014.
B. Symbols were among the top 10 worst passwords.
C. 123456 was the most common leaked password in both 2013 and 2014.
D. People are getting more experienced in picking their passwords.
6. How many passwords were ranked lower on 2014's top 10 worst password list?
A. One. B. Two. C. Three. D. Four.
7. What is recommended in the text to have safer passwords?
A. Using long and strange passwords. B. Changing passwords regularly.
C. Replacing "e" by "3" when setting passwords.云南省2016届高中毕业生统一检测英语试卷
D. Choosing different passwords for different accounts.

Speak confidently and think logically. Year 13 schoolboy Arunabh Prakash can't agree more. Anmabh is one of the five students that will represent New Zealand at the 26th World Schools Debating Championships (WSDC) to be held in Thailand from August 5 to l5 this year.
"You've got to be persuasive, regardless of the fact that you believe in a topic or not," says the 17-year-old.
"There are a lot of speakers who are eloquent (雄辩的) but find it difficult to think logically and then there are those who have a good argument but can't deliver."
Endurance (忍耐) is another quality he says one must have in the heated arena (赛场) of expressing opinions and ideas.
"There are times when you have to debate for five hours at a go and are completely exhausted. It's quite intense. You must have the energy to debate for long hours," says Arunabh, who began debating in year 10.
The WSDC is a debating competition in the world for high school students from different countries. It involves four prepared debates and four impromptu debates — debates without specific preparations.
To gain selection for the national team for the global final, Arunabh had to compete with regional teams. Despite the mounting pressure, he says he was confident of winning.
"We didn't loose a debate in the first two days. And we had a very strong team. We were confident of our ability to win," he says.

If I could give everyone one piece of advice about the college application process, it would be this:
Be different from the beginning. Don't wait until the summer after junior year, or worse, the fall of senior year to begin this process. You might be seeing the stress in seniors who are frantically (疯狂地) visiting colleges, writing essays, and completing applications.
Do some research and think beyond the "usual suspects" (备选) before you find the most suitable choice. Colleges compare students from the same high school with the same measuring stick since they read all the applications together. If your coursework and test scores don't look good enough, it will be more challenging to be accepted. However, your leadership or special talents may be more impressive if you are one of only a few students applying to a certain college.
Be different in the activities you choose and follow your interests, not your friends. It could be tutoring, the environment, dancing, writing, or starting a business, but take part for the right reasons. Your activities should be meaningful and tell a story about who you are.
Be different in what you write about in your essay to stand out. It is the one tool that gives you total control, so use it wisely. Write what you want them to know about you, not what you think they want to read. Brainstorming your essay topic is a self-reflection process. Find something unique.
A. Try to develop your talents.
B. Be different in preparing your college list.
C. Stay away from topics that everyone writes about.
D. Dare to be different.
E. Imagine what people are usually interested in.
F. Starting early will relieve much stress.
G. Find something that matters to you or something you care about.
I have two friends who love backpacking. They spent a lot of time in a part of New York State's Adirondack Mountains. It 46 mountains with a height of over 4,000 feet. The Adirondack Mountain Club gives recognition, and an award, to anyone who all 46 mountains. My two friends decided to go for this award.
Now what you have to understand is that many of the 46 mountains have well-marked to their summits (山顶), others are not marked at all. You have to "bushwhack (在丛林中开路)" using a compass and a map.
My friends had climbed 45 of the mountains. They had just one — it was the most requiring bushwhacking. A hiking path led past the base of the mountain, but from that point they were on their own.
Early one morning they left their and walked five miles on the hiking path to the base of a chain of mountains. When they arrived, they that they had left their compass and map back in camp. Rather than the camp, they decided to bushwhack without the compass and map.
For hours they uphill enduring heat, thick bush, and black flies. , late in the
afternoon they found themselves at the of a mountain successfully. They were exhausted but .
The feeling was short-lived, however. When they looked across the valley, they another higher mountain. They had climbed the one! It was too that weekend to put their error right. They had to another four months to climb the right mountain.
This story us a good lesson. Often in life we put in a great effort to reach a goal. But without the right "map" and "compass", it is to get "lost".

In 1992, I had just launched a new business called Video News International.
It was the world's first video journalist network. The idea was to cover news and sell the service to news
One day, a young intern (实习生) who was working for us named Anthony Lappe pulled me aside.
"There is something you have to see," he told me. "Comcast is doing this really cool thing."
"The Internet," he said. "It's going to be really big."
Anthony later introduced me to the head of the Internet project.
"We are looking for content to put on our network here," the guy said to me.
Well, I said I had lots of content to offer.
The guy's eyes lit up. "Cool," he said. "We would like to put it on our network."
Well, I was always looking for new clients.
"What are you going to pay?" I asked.
He said that they could not pay anything for the content, but they would set up a URL for me.
"What's that?" I asked.云南省2016届高中毕业生统一检测英语试卷
"It's kind of like your address on the web."
"What would I do with this URL thing?"
"Well, it could be your business."
"I don't see how it is a business, and there's not even any advertising," I cleverly replied.
"Not yet," he said. "But one day there might be."
I thought about it for two seconds. And I walked out.
Well, that Internet thing turned out
