  For her first twenty-four year, she'd been known as Deb bie--a name that didn't suit her good looks and elegant manner. "My name has always made me think I should Be a cheer leader," She complained. "I just don't feel like a Debbie!"

  One day, while filling out an application form for publishing job, the young woman suddenly changed middle name, Lynne, for her first name Debbie. "That was the smartest  thing I ever did," She says now. "As soon as I stopped calling myself Debbie. I feh more comfortable with myself.., and other people started to take me more seriously". Two years after her successful job interview, the former waitress is now a successful magazine editor friends and associates call her Lynne.

  Naturally, the name change didn't cause Debbie/I.ynne's professional achievement but it surely helped if only by adding a bit of self-confidence to her talents. Social scientists say that what you're called can affect your life. Throughout history, names have not only identified people But also described them. "... As his name is, so is he..." says the Bible. For better or worse, qualities such as friendliness or reserves, simpleness or charm may be suggested by your name and encourageother people before they even meet you.

  Of course, names with a good sense can work for you even encouraging new acquaintances. A recent survey showed that American men thought Susan to be the most attractive female name, while women believed Richard and David were the most attractive to men. One woman I know turned down a blind date with a man named Harry because "he sounded dull". Several evenings later she came up to me at a party, pressing for an introduction to a very nice man with whom they looked at each other all evening. "Oh, 'I said. "You mean Harry? "She was ill at ease.

  Yang Yongfang used to take the bus to work. But, these days, when she takes a look at the bus, all she sees is "a big box full of people,all breathing in there. It seems very unsafe."

  And that means SARS. So Yang got out her bicycle and dusted it off. Other Chinese who, until recently, appeared to be moving away from the old mode of transportation, seem to he back riding as well.

  Of course, there's no shortage of bikes. There were plenty long before SARS showed up. But in recent years, private care have been growing in large numbers, crowding bicycles off the streets in some of the biggest cities. Now SARS has brought the bicycle traffic back. Crowded trains and buses look less attractive(吸引人的).

  In Shanghai 120,000 more bicycles were registered (登记) in April, well above last year's monthly average of 50,000.

  People's Daily recently reported that "bicycle" had suddenly become the third most frequently searched term on the nation's largest Web search engine.

  However, if bike sales continue upward, it could become a nightmare (噩梦)for traffic planners, who had to contend with the often deadly clash between bikes and motorized vehicles. Shanghai officially sees nearly one traffic-related bicycle death a day, a figure that many people here say is probably an understatement (少报).

  1. Before SARS broke out, Yang Yongfang______.

  A. was tired of going to work by car

  B. went to work by bike

  C. had already sold her bike

  D. went to work by bus

  A. is strongly against    B. is for

  C. shows no opinion of    D. is worried about

  4. What is the best title for the passage?

  A. Bikes Sell Well in Shanghai.

  B. The New Fashion.

  C. Back to Nature.

  D. Shanghai Takes on a New Look.

  答案: A 指导:为了躲避SARS,人们又重新选择了自行车,从而导致了自行车的旺销。因此,将A作为标题,可以揭示出“triffic"与"SARS',之间在这一特定时期的关系。


  On hearing the words "Just do it!", you will know there is a Nike product nearby. If it's "Always Coca-Cola", you can be sure someone wants to sell you a refreshing drink.

  An advertising slogan is to a brand what eyes are to a person. The slogan helps people understand the brand better by telling them what it wants to sell to its customers. Good slogans leave a message inside people's minds. It's almost certain that every brand has a popular slogan.

  Here are a few examples:

  "Just do it!'--This slogan speaks out to teens. It tells them to do something, but only if they think it's worth it. And if so, why not do it wearing Nike?

  "Always Coca-Cola.' Coke's slogans change every few years, but this one has enjoyed a lasting popularity because it shows the brand's spirit. It seems to say "Coke is the only drink there is; there are no other forms of drinks."

  "Share moments, share life."  This slogan from Kodak connects photos and beauty. It takes people to remember the happy moments in life by taking photos of them using Kodak film of course!

  B. the happy moments

In railway underground stations, people read notices and maps that told them where to go and what to do in the emergency. This was Exercise Flood Call, to prepare people for a flood emergency.

If it happens, 50 underground stations will be under water. Electricity, gas and phone services will be out of action. Roads will be drowned. It will be impossible to cross any of the bridges between north and south London. Imagine: London will look like the famous Italian city, Venice.

  Doodles are signs which you draw unconsciously when you are holding a pen in your hand and just happen to start writing aimlessly. However, there is more to these" diagrams (图形) of the unconscious" than what you see. Free from the restriction of the conscious mind, they can be useful in finding your character and personality, and many of your secret hopes, ambitions, fears, and dreams.

  Faces are a sign of sociability or lack of it. If you doodle happy, smiling faces, you have a friendly, out-going disposition which people respond to, and you enjoy an active social life If your faces are bad, this may mean hating others. Faces  looking to the right are a sign of out-going personality and confident expectation about the future, to the left, a sign of shyness and self-control.

  Bare or narrow trees show a lack of warmth. You've probably been disappointed in life or could even be suffering from a minor illness that needs attention.

  If you build a house in layers (层), each layer separate,  you could be too proud, too eager to make your loved ones follow your order and jump to attention. A little untidiness in a house makes the people feel comfortable, safe and happy.

  If your doodle looks like a web, you are making a cry for help in solving a problem. You feel trapped, and are seeking a way out perhaps you even want to travel, try out new ideas and realize your ambitions. But you lack confidence to step out into the world on your own because of the web you've created around you.
