Street art can be found on buildings, sidewalks, street signs and even trashcans from Tokyo to Paris to New York City. This special kind of art can take the form of paintings, sculptures, cloth or even stickers. Street art has become part of a global visual culture. Now, even art museums and galleries are collecting the work of street artists.
It is not easy to provide an exact history of the street art movement. Many experts say the movement began in New York City in the nineteen sixties. Young adults would use paint in special cans to spray their“tag” on walls and train cars around the city. This tag was a name they created to identify themselves and their artwork. This colorful style of writing is also called graffiti. It is visually exciting and energetic. Some graffiti paintings were signs marking the territories of city gangs or illegal crime groups.
Graffiti also became a separate movement expressing the street culture of young people living in big cities. Graffiti art represented social and political rebellion. This was art that rejected the accepted rules of culture and power. These artists could travel around areas of the city making creative paintings for everyone to see. The artists could become famous without being officially recognized.
Street art today takes many forms. One wellknown New York City street artist goes by the name of Swoon. Swoon creates detailed paper cutouts of people that she observes around her. She places these life-size images on walls in different areas of New York. For example, one of her artworks is of a little boy playing. He is turning his smiling face and seems to be running into the distance. She placed the picture of the boy next to other large graffiti images. It looks like he is running around between the different pieces of artwork.

A. secret messages of members in an illegal crime group

The Environmental Film Festival in Washington, D.C. has been bringing movies to America’s capital for seventeen years. This year, the twelve-day festival showed more than one hundred and thirty movies from thirty-four countries.
The movies were shown in fifty-two museums, embassies, and other places around the city this month. Many movies were about the state of the world’s oceans and sea life. (The aim of the festival is to educate people about environmental issues affecting our planet.)
The Museum of Natural History showed many other movies about the ocean. These included “Fisheye Fantasea”, which explores how fish see in the ocean. “Cracking the Ocean Code” is about the work of scientist J. Craig Venter. In the movie he travels around the world documenting the genetic information of small sea creatures.
At the Library of Congress, festival visitors could watch “The Silent World” directed by Jacques Cousteau and Louis Malle. When this movie came out in nineteen fifty-six, it was the first to show scuba diving exploration to the world. The movie takes place during a trip across the Mediterranean, Red Sea and Indian Ocean.
The Environmental Film Festival in Washington was started by Flo Stone. “I founded the festival in nineteen ninety-three. I’d worked on other film festivals, one on cultural diversity at the Natural History Museum in New York City. But in Washington, I thought it would be wonderful to do a festival on the environment very broadly, cooperating with many museums, universities, libraries, environmental organizations and even embassies from around the world.” Flo Stone said.
Not all movies at the festival were about oceans. One movie shown at the National Building Museum is called “Designing a Great Neighborhood: Behind the Scenes at Holiday”. It tells about building a community housing project in Boulder, Colorado. The future owners of the houses work together with different building designers to create environmentally safe houses that do not pollute.
41. Which film shows scuba diving exploration to the world?
A. “Fisheye Fantasea”

The Outline for China’s Sustainable Development (可持续发展) is published recently by the Beijing-based Science Press. It painted a rosy picture of China in the year 2050.
According to the Outline, Chinese people will live longer, study longer, use far less energy and spend a much smaller part of their income on food.
The Outline is made up of research reports and analysis done by 184 scientists and researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
According to their study, average life expectancy (预期寿命) will reach 85 by 2050. That would be a huge climb from the present average of 71.8.
Also, the Outline says that by 2050, the average schooling period will increase from 8.2 years to 14 years.
The Engel’s Coefficient (恩格尔系数) will be pushed below 15 percent, according to the Outline. The Engel’s Coefficient shows people’s living standard in a country. It is the percentage of a family’s income that is spent on food. The lower it is, the more developed the country. At present, the Engel’s Coefficient in some developed countries is as low as 20 percent. The figure is 37 percent for urban (城市的) Chinese and 45 percent for rural (乡村的) people in China.
Lu Yongxiang, CAS president and editor-in-chief of the Outline, told China Daily that the development goals are scientific and realistic. They have been carefully measured by researchers and can be shifted to suit government plans.
However, China has to overcome a lot of difficulties. The biggest challenges include its huge population, limited energy and resources, deteriorating (恶化的) environment, the widening urban-rural gap, and a lack of social equality.
46. Which of the following is NOT true?
A. 184 scientists and researchers took part in the design work of the Outline.

47. By 2050 the Engel’s Coefficient of China will be___________.
     A. below 15 percent    B. as low as 20 percent  
     C. 37 percent     D. 45 percent
48. How is the Outline?
A. Ideal.      B. Reasonable. C. Imaginative. D. Unreal.
49. How many big challenges does our country face?
A. 3.    B. 4.   C. 5.       D. 6.

A senior U.N. official has described the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami as among the worst-ever natural disasters. The United Nations' top emergency relief (救济) official, Jan Egeland, says the death toll from the December 26 tsunami may rise much higher as more information becomes available from the isolated western coast of Sumatra. Mr. Egeland says relief workers are now focusing on the western coast of northern Sumatra. He says they are just beginning to fully grasp the level of destruction caused by the earthquake and tsunami in that area. "The coast is low. It takes the full blast (冲击波) of the tsunami which was at its highest and many, many of these villages are gone," he said. "There is no trace (踪迹) left of them. They had hardly roads before. Now they have nothing. The death toll will grow highly on the west coast of Sumatra. What will be the final toll, we will never know. But we may be talking of tens of thousands of further deaths in this area. The town of Meulaboh, nearly 50,000 inhabitants, has perhaps been the most destructed of any town anywhere, even much more than Banda Aceh."  Mr. Egeland describes reaching the isolated parts of Sumatra as a nightmare . Mr. Egeland said international response to the disaster has been, in his words "overwhelmingly positive." He said much of the aid is being directed at the water and sanitation sectors (卫生设备) in the worst-hit countries.                                                                56.In this passage, what does the phrase “ death toll” mean?______________________________________________.(within 10 words )
