Do you believe in the power of music? If you’re like most kids these days，you probably have an electronic device loaded with hundreds or even thousands of your favorite songs．At any moment in time．you can fill your headphones with the sounds of a particular song that suits your mood at that exact time．
Are you getting ready for a big soccer match or do you need to get excited? Maybe some hip hop with a strong beat will do the trick! Besides，you might be ready to study for a big exam the next day．To calm your nerves and help you concentrate，a little bit of Mozart might make memorization more manageable．
But is there any scientific evidence of these effects that music seems to have? You bet there is! Scientists have long recognized the power of music．Over the years，many studies have been conducted to examine in greater depth the nature and extent of the effects music has on people．
For example，scientists at the University of Missouri have found that listening to music can have a positive effect on your mood．Their research gives scientific credibility(可信性)to the behavior that many people have already experienced on their own：listening to upbeat music can brighten your day and boost your mood．
Other studies have shown that upbeat music isn’t the only type of music that can be helpful，however．When people are sad or have suffered a personal loss，sad music can be helpful because people identify with the tone and lyrias(歌词)of the music．Likewise，people under a lot of stress or experiencing upsetting situations can benefit from listening to angry music．Although angry music might not help you if you’re in a normal mood，its tone can benefit you when you are dealing with stressful and upsetting situations．

At the age of seven，while his friends were spending their allowances on candy and toys，Jose Adolfo Quisocola，from Peru，came up with the creative idea of an eco-bank，which allows kids of all ages to become economically independent and financially wise while also helping the environment．
Established in 2012，The Bartselana Student Bank is the world’s first cooperative bank for kids．Whoever wants to join has to bring in at least 5 kilograms(11 pounds)of solid waste(paper or plastic)and establish a savings goal．Once accepted，all bank“partners”are required to deposit at least one additional kilogram(2．2 pounds)of recyclables on a monthly basis and obey other requirements，such as attending financial education and environmental management workshops．The waste accumulated is sold to local recycling companies，who，thanks to some clever negotiation by Jose，pay a higher-than-market rate for everything brought in by Bartselana Student Bank members．The funds received are placed in the individual’s account where they collect until his／her savings goal is reached．The account holder can then withdraw his／her money，or choose to leave it and continue to grow for a bigger target．
“At the beginning，my teachers thought I was crazy or that a child could not undertake this type of project，”Jose recalls．“They did not understand that we are not the future of the country but its present．Luckily，I had the support of the school principal and an assistant in my classroom．”
The youngster’s persistence paid off．Today，the eco-bank，which now has the support of several local institutions，has ten educational centers and begins accepting applications from kids all across Peru．On November 20，2018，the young boy was awarded the famous Children’s Climate Prize (CCP)．“Jose’s eco-bank is a brilliant way of linking economy and climate impact，both in thought and practice．The potential impact is amazing，”a judge said．
Hopefully，Jose’s success will inspire more kids and adults to come up with new ideas that create value while helping the environment．As the boy says，“Together we can change the world…we just need an opportunity…”
28．For what main purpose was the eco-bank created?
A．To educate children how to spend their allowances．
B．To help children become independent from their parents．
C．To raise children’s awareness of environmental protection．
D．To encourage children to buy whatever they want．
29．What does Paragraph 2 mainly talk about?
A．The history of the eco-bank．
B．The requirements of membership．
C．The wise way to deal with waste．
D．The process of running the eco-bank．

While the start of a new school year is always exciting，this year was even more so for some elementary school students in Auckland，New Zealand．They became the world’s first kids to be“taught”by a digital teacher，Will．Will is just an avatar(用户头像)that appears on the student’s desktop，tablet，or smartphone screen，not a human-like robot walking around the classroom．
Auckland energy company Vector and AI company Soul Machines worked together to develop Will，which has been modeled after the human brain and nervous system，allowing it to perform human-like behavior．The digital teacher is currently assigned to teach Vector’s“Be sustainable with energy，”a free program for Auckland elementary schools．
Just like the humans it replaced，Will is able to instantly react to the students’responses to the topic．Thanks to a webcam(网络摄像头)and microphone，the avatar not only responds to questions the kids may have，but also picks up non-verbal cues(非口头提示)．For instance，if a student smiles at Will，he responds by smiling back．This two-way interaction not only helps capture the students’attention，but also allows the program’s developers to monitor their engagement，and make changes if needed．
Vector’s Chief Digital Officer，Nikhil Ravishankar says，“What was fascinating to me was the reaction of the children to Will．The way they look at the world is so creative and different，and Will really captured their attention．”
Will，in place since August 2018，has been a great success thus far．However，regardless of how popular it becomes，Will is unlikely to replace human educators any time soon．For one，the avatar’s knowledge base is severely restricted．But more importantly，even the smartest digital avatars could never predict and react to all the unexpected situations that educators have to deal with on a daily basis．However，it could come in handy as a“personal tutor”，providing kids with one-on-one help on specific subjects or even topics．
32．What made the students in Auckland more excited in the new term?
A．A robot teacher． B．A digital teacher．
C．New classmates． D．New tablets．
33．What’s Nikhil Ravishankar’s attitude toward Will?
A．Positive． B．Negative． C．Doubtful． D．Neutral．
34．What is Will able to do in class?
A．Think like humans． B．Satisfy all kids’needs．
C．Grab students’attention． D．Monitor students’participation．
35．What is mainly discussed about Will in the last paragraph?
A．Its popularity． B．Its limitations．
C．Its function． D．Its convenience．

Many years ago at Christmas time I parked my car in the town centre on my way to the post office to post my Christmas cards．It was the last posting day for Christmas cards if they were to be 41 before Christmas． 42 I came out of the car park I saw a boy who was 43 and holding his fight hand side．I 44 some bigger boys had perhaps bullied him and he was in 45 ．I had to go to his aid and see if I could 46 ．
He told me that his sister who was a 47 had bought him a Christmas present．It was a mobile phone．He only had it days when he 48 it and cracked the screen!

I had to help，though I was 55 to make ends meet myself．I searched my purse and gave the boy the only￡20 I could find and made some 56 as to why I could only give him so little．I didn’t want him to know it was all I had until pay day．I could not 57 pay for his phone to be repaired but I hope the 58 he received from a stranger was 59 that stayed with him when he became a man．

On Aug 13，four Chinese irrigation sites won global 61 (recognize)and were added to the 2018 list of Heritage Irrigation Structures，among 62 Dujiangyan is the oldest and only surviving damless irrigation system in the world．
Built over 2，000 years ago in 63 is now Sichuan Province in Southwest China，this amazing engineering achievement is still playing a crucial role in irrigating farms and providing water resources for more than 50 cities in the province．
In ancient times，the region in which Dujiangyan now stands 64 (threaten)by frequent flooding from the Minjiang River．Li Bing，a local official of Sichuan Province at that time，together with his son，decided to construct an irrigation system on the Minjiang River 65 (prevent)flooding．After many studies，they found the 66 (simple)solution was to build a dam，but this would have ruined the Minjiang River．So instead Li designed a series of 67 (channel)built at different levels along Mount Yulei that would take away the floodwater while leaving the river flowing 68 (natural)．Better still，the extra water could be directed to the dry Chengdu Plain，69 (make)it suitable for farming．
Ever since the great Dujiangyan Irrigation System was completed，the Chengdu Plain has been free 70 flooding and the people there have been living peacefully．
