A
The state of Florida is best known for its beaches and palm trees. But a large part of it is swamp(沼泽地). The famous Everglades, a slow-moving sheet of water full of plants and alligators(鳄鱼), covers much of the southern part
of the state. To the north, the Okefenokee, which is partly in Florida and mostly in neighboring Georgia, is a true swamp with its own alligators and snakes.
It was formed when waters from an ancient ocean drew back and a large sandbar(沙洲) blocked most of the water flow to the sea.
There is no big city within 200 kilometers, but tourists from all over the world manage to find it. They all want to know about its unusual name. Okefenokee is a Miccosukee Indian word meaning land of trembling(颤抖的) earth. Way back in the swamp are small, floating(漂浮的) islands, which one can walk across. And they tremble. Standing on them is like trying to balance on a floating mattress(床垫).
The Okefenokee, which is already nearly filled with plants, would probably dry up and become just another forest if it were not for the fires that come along from time to time. So the water in this protected National Wildlife Refuge keeps moving — slowly, very slowly.

 A. a forest B. a swamp  C. an ocean  D. a snake

 A. where the Okefenokee lies  B. what the size of the Okefenokee is
 C. how the floating islands come into being
 D. how the Okefenokee gets its special name
40. What can be inferred from the passage?
 A. The Okefenokee’s alligators attract many tourists.
 B. Hammocks tremble but do not move.
 C. Fires prevent the Okefenokee from drying up.
 D. Florida and Georgia cover 1,800 square kilometers in total.

A thirteen-year-old boy from California has become the youngest person ever to climb to the top of Mount Everest (珠穆朗玛峰) as part of his goal to climb the highest mountains on all seven continents.
At all of 13 years old, Jordan Romero, from Big Bear, California, has already climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro in Africa and has prepared for Mount Everest since then.
On Saturday 22nd May, 2010  Jordan reached the 29,035-foot top, his spokesperson told the Associated Press (美联社) via a satellite phone. On Jordan’s blog earlier in the day he’d said, “Every step I take is finally toward the biggest goal of my life, to stand on the top of the world”, and a statement on the blog from his spokesperson said that after they reached the summit “everyone sounded unbelievably happy” .
Jordan Romero has been climbing the highest mountains in the world with his father and three guides. His mother watched them via GPS at home. “I’m just very proud of him,” she said in a telephone interview with the Associated Press.

The old record was held by Temba Sheri of Nepal who climbed to the top of the mountain in 2001, at age 16.
Ambitious (雄心勃勃的) teenagers have become the source of some disagreements in recent months as questions are raised about the physical and mental health (身心健康) of children when trying to take an adventure to make a record.

 A. Jordan was only a four-year-old baby 
 B. Jordan was ready to climb the highest mountains in the world
 C. Jordan had already climbed the highest mountains in the world
 D. Jordan had already climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro

Street art is a very popular form of art that is spreading quickly all over the world. You can find it on buildings, sidewalks (人行道) and street signs from Tokyo to Paris.
Art experts say that the movement began in New York in the 1960s. Young adults would use paint in special cans to put their words and other images (图案) on walls and train cars (火车车厢) around the city. One well-known street artist is Swoon. She cuts out paper images of people and puts them on walls. Swoon didn’t start her career as a street artist. She studied art but, as time went on, got bored with the works she saw in museums and galleries. The people in New York enjoy Swoon’s strong and interesting style.
Street artists do their work for a reason. Some of them choose street art because it is closer to the people. Some artists try to express their political opinions in their works. Advertising companies also use street art in their advertisements because it gives the impression of youth and energy. The New York department store Saks Fifth Avenue recently used a street artist’s design for their shop windows and shopping bags.
In today’s world the Internet has a big influence on street art. Artists can show
their pictures to the audience all over the world. Many people, however, say that
seeing a picture on the Internet is never as good as seeing it live. Street art lives with the energy and life of a big city. There it will continue to change and grow.

The way you spend your morning can add a certain flavor to the rest of your day. Here are some healthy lifestyle habits to enter your morning routine (例程) that can help you handle the stress you will experience. Try one or several, and experiment until you find what suits you.
Music has been shown to reduce stress and have a positive effect on health. Listening to music will create positive energy and make you feel peaceful.

Having a stretch (伸展) in the shower is another good way to relax. The hot water will loosen up your muscles, so it’s easier to __________. The act of stretching will help to release stored pressure and enable you to start the day feeling more relaxed, at peace, and ready to handle what comes your way.

How are you doing there? Do you have a plan for your holiday?
Last Saturday, I went to see an exhibition of oil paintings in the local museum. It brought together some of the best works of twentieth century by famous European artists. The artists drew directly from objects and people around them, which made their works realistic and thoughtful. By appreciating those works of art, I got close to the world of color and form. The wonderful experience did offer me a new way of understanding the Western culture.
Did you have any pleasant experience recently? I am looking forward to your reply.
    Yours,
                                                                  Li Hua
