Today all inds of interesting interactions occurred. First, at the soup itchen, one of the guests gave several of us peppermint candies! That’s the first time that ever happened! It was so sweet and I am happy to receive his gratitude.
Another lady needed me to listen to her and ased me to pray for her husband. I hugged her and said of course I would. I always love hearing their stories if they want to share. So, so much love in just dissolving any barrier of “you” and “me” and seeing all of us as family.
Afterwards I went to the cafe to do some grading wor and grab a sandwich before heading off to the net gathering. There was an older lady who was looing for an empty table. There was one empty table in the bac, but I pushed my papers aside and gestured for her to sit across from me and she did. That then led to me getting to listen to this amaing Holocaust survivor’s life story (she is 84 years old!). It was such a gift to share lunch with her! Sadly I had to leave after a while, but it was so lovely to have lunch with a stranger and feel connected to her. As she said “The only things that matter in life are health, family and friends.”
As I was driving to a friend’s gathering I couldn’t help but reflect on the beauty of the day in all of the interactions I had, and just marveling(感到惊讶) at life…and then I am just AWESTRUC by this full RAINBOW that I can see right net to me…lie the universe saying “yup you got it!” I smiled to myself for the rest of the ride. So many gifts in each day…I am overflowing with gratitude.
24. Why did the author push his papers aside? A. To help the owner of the café. B. To mae himself comfortable. C. To mae friends with the older lady. D. To mae room for the older lady.
25. Which of the following can we infer from the passage? A. The author finds a barrier everywhere. B. The author lies the full RAINBOW very much. C. The author enjoys all sorts of the sharing. D. The author nows the lady’s husband.
26. What do we learn from the older lady? A. We should put our health, family and friends first. B. Her parents were illed during the Holocaust. C. She is lonely and helpless all her life. D. She will mae friends with the author soon.
27. Which of the following is the best tittle of the passage? A. Being a listener can dissolve the barrier B. We all should give gifts to the strangers C. We all should be grateful for life D. It’s important to be ind C Few things are more satisfying than sleeping late on weeends. But though the etra sleep may improve
your mood, they do not appear to improve your health. Because a new study shows that so-called “recovery sleep” cannot reset the body’s metabolic cloc…instead it may actually lead to some serious health issues.
“Sleep loss can impact a range of physiological systems. It can increase our ris for cardiovascular disease(心血管疾病), it can cause weight gain, it can decrease insulin sensitivity, so it can increase our ris of diabetes(糖尿病). Christopher Depner, an assistant professor of the University of Colorado, said in a conference last Sunday. “We were really interested in how this sort of cycle of insufficient sleep, weeend recovery sleep, can impact your ris of obesity and metabolic disease.”
Depner and his colleagues invited volunteers to a nine-day snooe-a-thon. One group was allowed to get a full night’s sleep. The net was ept to just five hours each night. And the third group went bac and forth, restricted to five hours of shut-eye during the worwee, allowed as much sleep as they wanted over the weeend, and then bac to five hours for the last couple days. “Well, the ey findings from this study show that when we maintain insufficient short sleep schedules during a typical wor or school wee, we find that this leads people to eat more than they need and this leads to weight gain.” So it seems a loss of sleep leads to a spie in snacing. But even more surprising, sleeping in on the weeend doesn’t help—and even maes things worse.
“We found that after the weeend, when they went bac to getting insufficient sleep during the wor or school wee, their liver and their muscle insulin sensitivity or blood sugar regulation was reduced. And this is not something we had found in people who maintained long insufficient sleep schedules. So it’s possible that, yes, this is a worsening of the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar for those specific tissues after the weeend.”
28. Which of the following is NOT the possible result of insufficient sleep?
A. Liver disease.
B. Diabetes. C. Cardiovascular disease. D. Stomachache.
29. What’s the purpose of the study of the nine-day snooe-a-thon?
A. To confirm the benefit of the sleep loss.
B. To confirm the influence of the recovery sleep.
C. To find which group is the strongest.
D. To demonstrate the importance of sleep.
30. What does the underlined word “spie” in Paragraph 3 mean?
31. What will happen if you have recovery sleep on weeend?
A. It will improve your health.
B. It will help you recover the body’s metabolic cloc.
C. It will result in serious health issues.
D. It will lead to the increased blood pressure.
Life insurance is among the oldest financial products. The Amicable Society, founded in London in
1706, charged members a set contribution and paid out annually to widows and children of those who had
died in the previous 12 months. Today it is a vast industry life and health insurers employ over 800,000
people in America alone. It protects hundreds of millions against the ris of dying early, through death benefits,
or the ris of living longer than epected, for eample through annuities(养老金). According to Allian, a German
insurer, total life-insurance epenses are above 5% of GDP in many rich countries, including Britain, France,
Italy and Japan. In America, the world’s biggest maret, annual epenses total more than $550 billion.
But life insurers are struggling as never before. Those parts of the industry that have not evolved fast
enough, says Clive Bannister, the head of Phoeni Group, a “closed” life insurer that buys and manages old
policies but issues no new ones, have eperienced a “demolition”(毁灭). He lists half a doen British life
insurers that eisted 15 years ago but no longer do.
The American life-insurance unit of AA, a French insurer, is just the latest sign of worries about the
industry’s prospects on May 10th. Shares were priced at $20, well below the epected $24-27. Among its
difficulties are low interest rates, which mae it hard to fulfill promises of guaranteed returns on some products,
and costly new regulations. Since 2016 Europe has required much more capital to be held against long-term
debt, lie those of life insurers. That has prompted some to see to rebalance their businesses. AA has not only
listed its American life arm this year but also announced the purchase of L, a Bermuda-based property-and-
More serious still are demographic(人口学的) pressures. As the rich world ages and retires, total life-
insurance epenses are flat or falling. In developed countries they fell by 0.5% in 2016 in real terms, according
to Swiss Re, a reinsurer. Some countries have fallen off a cliff, including Australia(an 18.2% drop in 2017 in
nominal terms) and Japan(11.3%), where negative interest rates have declined returns and prompted some
life insurers to stop selling lump-sum death-benefit policies. The industry has long been used to accumulating new finances, with old policies sold off to specialists (such as Phoeni). It will now have to adjust to “decumulation”, says Henri Naujs of Bain & Company, a consultancy.
32. Which country does AA belong to?
33. Which of the following would Clive Bannister most probably agree with?
A. The insurance is a more serious problem than before.
B. The American annual epenses are the biggest one in the world.
C. There are more and more life insurers as time goes by.
D. The life-insurance epenses of the developing countries also fell fast in 2016.
34. Where does this tet probably come from?
A. Fashion news. B. Financial news. C. Sports news. D. Entertainment news.
35. What would the author probably discuss after the last paragraph?
A. The sensible benefit of life insurance business.
B. The bright prospects of life insurance business.
C. The way to solve the problems of life insurance business.
D. The fast development of life insurance business.
