Suggestions for Your Work
Annie is a longtime secretary/receptionist for two senior vice presidents at a big company. They have been doing a lot of hiring lately, and almost all of the new middle-management personnel have been interviewed by one or the other of Annie's two bosses, so naturally they come through her office first.
Some of these people are unbelievably rude. Either they treat Annie like a piece of furniture (no hello, no eye contact) or they think she is their errand(差使)girl. Lately, Annie's two bosses have started asking her for her impressions of job candidates. So far this week, two have been discourteous(失礼的)and dismissive, so Annie gave both the thumbs-down. Neither is getting called back for the next round of interviews.
No one knows how common this is, but if you are job hunting, it's necessary to be aware that the dummy at the reception desk may be anything but not "just a secretary".
Suggestions to Job Hunters
According to Annie Stevens and Greg Gostanian, two partners at a Boston-based executive coaching firm called Clear Rock, it's not unusual these days for a hiring manager to ask everyone who meets a potential new hire to give an opinion of him or her. "One of the biggest reasons so many newly recruited managers fail in a new job is their inability to fit in and get along with the people who are already there," says Stevens. "So employers now want to get staffers' impressions right at the start."
Adds Gostanian:" A lot can be learned from how candidates treat receptionists. If the jobseeker is rude, condescending, or arrogant, this might be an indication of how he or she would treat coworkers or direct reports."
Obviously, anyone looking for a new job would do well not to alienate the person who sits outside the interviewer's door. Stevens and Gostanian offer these six tips for getting off to the right start:
•Introduce yourself as you would to any other potential new colleague. Smile, shake hands, and so on. It seems odd that this has to be spelled out, but apparently it does; and, besides being a matter of common courtesy, ordinary friendliness offers a practical advantage. "Learning and remembering an interviewer's receptionist's name can only help as you advance in the interviewing process," Stevens notes.
•Don't regard a receptionist or other assistant as an underling(部下)—at least, not as your own personal underling. "Always ask the interviewer if you need help from anyone else in the office where you're interviewing, instead of seeking this directly yourself," says Gostanian. In other words, if you'd like to leave an extra copy of your resume, refrain from sending the interviewer's assistant to the Xerox machine.
•It's fine to accept if you're offered a beverage, but keep it simple. "Don't ask for particular brand names or expect to be brewed a fresh pot of coffee," Stevens says. And of course, need we add that dispatching anybody to Starbucks is out of the question?
•Feel free to make small talk, but know that anything you say may well get back to the interviewer. "Don't ask probing questions about the company or offer unsolicited opinions," Gostanian advises. No matter how hideous the office door, endless the hike from the parking lot, or inconvenient the wait to see the interviewer, keep it to yourself. Plenty of time for whining(抱怨)and grumbling after you're hired.
•Don't talk on your cell phone in front of the receptionist, and try to put your BlackBerry aside. "If you have to make or take a call, leave the reception area," Stevens says. Preoccupation with wireless devices will mark you, she says, as "a cold and fixated person".
•Don't forget to say good-bye. "Failure to say good-bye to someone you've just met reflects negatively on you," Gostanian notes. "You'll come across as impersonal and uncaring." That's hardly the image any job hunter wants to project.
How to Measure Your Work
Any job, like any relationship, has its difficult moments. And with the job market heating up, the temptations to change partners are growing.
As with any relationship, however, you really should assess the full value of what you've got before giving it up wholesale, because—let's fact it—regret really is a waste of your time.
Regardless of the main task of a job—be it bond trading, teaching, balancing the books, or cleaning hotel rooms—are there objective criteria that you can use to measure whether your job is wonderful or not?
Workplace experts Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman have identified several. In their book First, Break All the Rules: What the World's Greatest Managers Do Differently, they offer a useful guide in the form of 12 questions:
•Do I know what's expected of me at work?
•Do I have the materials and equipment I need to do my work right?
•At work, do I have the opportunity to do what I do best every day?
•In the last 7 days, have I received recognition or praise for doing good work?
•Does my supervisor, or someone at work, seem to care about me as a person?
•Is there someone at work who encourages my development?
•At work, do my opinions seem to count?
•Does the mission/purpose of my company make me feel my job is important?
•Are my coworkers committed to doing quality work?
•Do I have a best friend at work?
•In the last six months, has someone at work talked to me about my progress?
•This last year, have I had opportunities at work to learn and to grow?
Buckingham and Coffman picked these 12 questions after looking for patterns among the responses of more than 1 million employees to workplace questions posed by the Gallup Organization over the years.
"We were searching for those special questions where the most engaged employees ... answered positively, and everyone else...answered neutrally or negatively," they wrote.
Their reasoning: they wanted to identify the key elements of a strong workplace that can attract and retain talent.
Satisfaction with pay and benefits didn't make the list not because they're not important, Coffman said, but because they're important to all employees, whether they're engaged in their work or not.
So, assuming you feel you're paid the going rate for your job, answering affirmatively to all or even most of the 12 questions can be an indication that you've got a great job that you should part with only for very good reason. And if job satisfaction is important to you, then the promise of a bigger paycheck alone may not be reason enough.
When Coffman is asked what percentage of companies he thinks actually pass the 12-question test, his estimate is no more than 15 percent. But within a company, he said, individual departments may meet the test, even if the company overall doesn't.
Why? The manager of a department makes all the difference. Coffman said when an employee quits, 70 percent of the time she's not leaving because of the job, she's leaving because of the manager.
One cautionary note: your job may not be as wonderful for you as you think if you answer a majority of the 12 questions affirmatively but the few questions that you can't are among the first six. That's because the first six questions make up the base on which job satisfaction rests, according to Buckingham and Coffman. If your current job doesn't meet the first six criteria, you are more likely to be disengaged with your work and less productive than you could be.
Consider question three after all. Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best everyday? "If you're not able to use your gifts every day, you'll be pretty frustrated," Coffman said.
Of course, job satisfaction isn't a one-way street with a department either meeting your needs or not. In order to answer the 12 questions honestly, you need to know what it is that makes you tick and not blindly blame your department for any job dissatisfaction.
Do you know what it is you like to do and what you do best? What kind of recognition do you like? Public or private? What are your values and do they square with your company's goals? How do you like a manager to relate to you?
Otherwise, your career, like a string of bad relationships, can become a case of "different partner, same problems".
1. When you go to a company for an interview, there is no need to care the feelings of the receptionists.
2. According to Annie Stevens, many newly recruited managers fail in a new job because they cannot get along with their coworkers.
3. If you want to get off to the right start, you should treat the receptionists as your potential bosses.
4. If you fail to say "thank you" to the receptionists, they will have negative impressions of you.
5. If you want to give up a job wholesale, you should evaluate ________ from it.
6. When you are measuring your work, you should consider that if there is someone at work who encourages your development and talks to you about __________.
7. The question about satisfaction with pay and benefits is not included in the 12 questions because it's important to all employees, whether ________ or not.
8. Even if the company overall cannot pass the 12-question test, ________ may pass it.
9. You should pay special attention to the first six questions of the 12 questions because they make up the base on which ________.
10. If you want to answer the 12 questions honestly, you should know what makes you not blindly blame your department for ________.

Questions 47 to 56 are based on the following passage.
Education is a long process that not only provides us with basic skills such as literacy and numeracy, but is also essential in shaping our future lives. From the moment we enter 47 as small children, and as we progress through primary and secondary education, we are laying the foundation for the life ahead of us. We must 48 ourselves to work hard so that we can pass exams and gain the qualifications we will need to 49 a good job. We must also acquire 50 life skills so that we can fit in and work with those around us. And of course health education helps us to understand how we can stay 51 and healthy.
For most people, this process ends when they are in their mid-to-late teens. For others, however, it is the beginning of a(n) 52 of learning. After they finish school, many progress to 53 education where they will learn more useful skills such as computer literacy or basic business management. Others will enroll in a program of 54 education at a university where, with hard work, they will have the opportunity to graduate after three or four years with a well-earned degree. After that, they may work for a while before 55 to study for a higher degree—an M.A., for example, or a PhD. And if they live a long way from a college or university, they might follow a correspondence course using mail and the Internet. In fact, it is 56 due to the proliferation of computers that many people, who have not been near a school for many years, have started to study again and can proudly class themselves as mature students.
[A] changing [I] discipline
[B] secure [J] fit
[C] longer [K] opting
[D] kindergarten [L] school
[E] higher [M] valuable
[F] lifetime [N] heavily

You should decide on the best choice and mark the corresponding letter on Answer Sheet 2 with a single line through the center.
Questions 57 to 61 are based on the following passage.
The Food and Drug Administration said on Wednesday that it is trying to track down as many as 386 piglets that may have been genetically engineered and wrongfully sold into the U.S. food supply.
The focus of the FDA investigation is on pigs raised by researchers at the University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign. They engineered the animals with two genes: one is a cow gene that increases milk production in the sow; the other, a synthetic gene, makes the milk easier for piglets to digest. The goal was to raise bigger pigs faster.
There has been no evidence that either genetically altered plants or animals actually trigger human illness, but critics warn that potential side effects remain unknown. University officials say their tests showed the piglets were not born with the altered genes, but FDA rules require even the offspring of genetically engineered animals to be destroyed so they won't get into the food supply.
The FDA, in a quickly arranged news conference on Wednesday prompted by inquiries by USA TODAY, said the University of Illinois would face possible sanctions and fines for selling the piglets to a livestock broker, who in turn sold them to processing plants.
Both the FDA and the university say the pigs that entered the market do not pose a risk to consumers. But the investigation follows action by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in December to fine a Texas company that contaminated 500,000 bushels of soybeans with corn that had been genetically altered to produce a vaccine for pigs.
Critics see such cases as evidence of the need for more government oversight of a burgeoning(新兴的)area of scientific research. "This is a small incident, but it's incidents like this that could destroy consumer confidence and export confidence," says Stephanie Childs of the Grocery Manufacturers of America. "We already have Europe shaky on biotech. The countries to which we export are going to look at this."
The University of Illinois says it tested the DNA of every piglet eight times to make sure that the animal hadn't inherited the genetic engineering of its mother. Those piglets that did were put back into the study. Those that didn't were sold to the pig broker. "Any pig that was tested negative for the genes since 1999 has been sent off to market," says Charles Zukoski, vice chancellor for research.
But FDA deputy commissioner Lester Crawford says that under the terms of the university's agreement with the FDA, the researchers were forbidden to remove the piglets without FDA approval. "The University of Illinois failed to check with FDA to see whether or not the animals could be sold on the open market. And they were not to be used under any circumstance for food."
The FDA is responsible for regulating and overseeing transgenic animals because such genetic manipulation is considered an unapproved animal drug.
57. The 386 piglets wrongfully sold into food supply are from ________.
[A] Europe [B] an American research organization
[C] a meat processing plant [D] an animal farm
58. The purpose of the transgenic engineering research is to ________.
[A] get pigs of larger size in a shorter time
[B] make sows produce more milk
[C] make cows produce more milk
[D] make pigs grow more lean meat
59. The 4th paragraph shows that the University of Illinois ________.
[A] was criticized by the FDA
[B] is in great trouble
[C] is required by the FDA to call back the sold piglets
[D] may have to pay the penalty
60. The FDA declares that the wrongfully sold piglets ________.
[A] may have side effects on consumers [B] may be harmful to consumers
[C] are safe to consumers [D] may cause human illness
61. It can be inferred from this passage that ________.
[A] all the offspring have their mothers' genetic engineering
[B] part of the offspring have their mothers' genetic engineering
[C] none of the offspring have their mothers' genetic engineering
[D] half of the offspring have their mothers' genetic engineering
Questions 62 to 66 are based on the following passage.
A class action lawsuit has been filed against a prominent Toronto doctor by patients who allege he injected a banned substance into their faces for cosmetic purposes. The doctor had already been investigated for more than three years for using the liquid silicone, a product not authorized for use in Canada.
Some patients say they are now suffering health problems and think the liquid silicone may be to blame. One of those patients is Anna Barbiero. She says her Toronto dermatologist told her he was using liquid silicone to smooth out wrinkles. what she says he didn't tell her is that it isn't approved for use in Canada. "I didn't know what liquid silicone was and he just called it 'liquid gold'," Barbiero remembers. After her last treatment, Anna discovered Dr. Sheldon Pollack had been ordered to stop using the silicone two years earlier by Health Canada. Experts say silicone can migrate through the body, and cause inflammation and deformities.
"My upper lip is always numb and it burns," Barbiero says. Barbiero is spearheading(带头)a lawsuit against the doctor, who her lawyer thinks might involve up to 100 patients injected with the same material. "The fact, a physician of his stature would use an unauthorized product on a patient because he thought it was okay, is really very disturbing," says lawyer Douglas Elliott.
Ontario's College of Physicians and Surgeons is also investigating Dr. Pollack to see if, in fact, he continued to use the silicone after agreeing to stop and whether he wrote in patient records that he used another legal product when he used silicone. However, in a letter to the College, Dr. Pollack wrote that he had always told patients that the silicone was not approved for sale in Canada, and had warned them of the risks. And in Barbiero's case, "...at the time of her first visit, prior to her ever receiving IGLS treatment, I specifically informed her that the material was not approved for sale in Canada by the Health Protection Branch and that I did receive the material from outside the country ...I would like to emphasize that, as is evident on Ms. Barbiero's chart, I drew a specific diagram on the chart which I carefully discussed with and explained to Ms. Barbiero as I did with every other patient to explain the nature and likelihood of complications and the reasons and consequences of those possible complications."
Dr. Pollack declined to speak to CTV News, or to have his lawyer discuss the case. None of the allegations have been proven in court. But the case raises questions about the ability of governing bodies to monitor doctors. "There's a larger message and that is: buyer beware," says Nancy Neilsen of Cosmetic Surgery Canada, "It's incumbent(负有义务的)on consumers to do their research."
62. Doctor Sheldon Pollack was charged that ________.
[A] he had prescribed wrong medicine for patients by mistake
[B] he had treated his patients with something illegal, causing bad result
[C] he had pretended to be a prominent surgeon
[D] he had sold an unauthorized product in large amount
63. What does the word "dermatologist" (Line 2, Para. 2) mean?
[A] A person whose work is filling, cleaning and taking out teeth.
[B] A person whose work is studying mental diseases.
[C] A person whose work is healing eye diseases.
[D] A person whose work is curing skin diseases.
64. The investigation of Ontario's College of Physicians and Surgeons is to find ________.
[A] whether he still has illegal treatment on his patients
[B] how many patients have been abused
[C] if he told his patients about the risk
[D] how much money he got from his illegal treatment
65. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
[A] Barbiero took the treatment after being told the risk.
[B] Dr. Sheldon Pollack started his work with the patients' agreement to accept the potential risk.
[C] A famous doctor should be authorized to use something he thinks okay on patients.
[D] Barbiero is suffering a lot.
66. From the ending part of the passage, we can conclude that________.
[A] Barbiero will win the lawsuit
[B] Dr. Sheldon Pollack will win the lawsuit
[C] the cases have been dismissed
[D] governing bodies to monitor doctor will be charged

The loudest outcry about poverty seemed to come in the wealthiest country by far in the world. According to most calculations, 67 most of that period the United States had a standard of living well 68 Europe's and many times above the world 69 . Yet protests about grinding poverty, hunger, and dreadful need 70 more from the United States than from countries with one-fortieth of their living 71 . An annual per capita income of about 500 dollars is 72 of much of Africa and Asia and not a little of South America. It would seem strange to these people that American radicals demand a 73 from an American commitment to the far corners of the globe so that the money thus saved can be spent 74 the standard of living of 75 Americans. What this last point suggests is not so much that human 76 are never to be satisfied though this is doubtlessly true, and the American suburbanite(郊区居民) 77 of his second car and his color TV suffers just as 78 as an African farmer in need of a second cow and a screen door. Rather, it suggests the 79 of contemporary breach of social 80 —the emancipation of the individual self. People have learned to consider any 81 to personal fulfillment as a(n) 82 insult. They have greatly expanded the circle of self-awareness. They no longer accept sharp limitations on individual desires in the 83 of the group. The amount of potential human discontent has always been 84 —misery, failure, misfitting, bitterness, hatred, envy 85 telling. It has usually failed of 86 , and in the past it was accepted passively as being beyond help.

Part I Writing
Away from Net-bar Campaign
It has been reported that a middle school in Xuzhou City has recently launched a campaign named "Away from Net-bar". More than a thousand students have signed for their solemn promise that they will not spend a single minute in the net-bars. With the coming of the summer vacation, this campaign is especially meaningful for the healthy development of the minors.
The Internet has brought people great convenience in getting information, entertaining and contacting each other, and it has also benefited some businessmen, especially the owners of net-bars. While it is true that most net-bars are running legally, it is also true that some are offering unhealthy programs that involve violence and sex content. Since most middle school students are prone to be influenced and they can hardly tell which bar is doing well and which one is not, it is only advisable that they should stay away from all.
Besides, staying away from net-bars is also good to students' physical health. By passively sitting too long in front of the computer screen, both their eyesight and physique suffer.
Obviously, the Away from Net-bars Campaign is an activity that is worth advocating and it merits other schools' reference.
Part II Reading Comprehension (Skimming and Scanning)
2.Y 根据题干中的信息词Annie Stevens和newly recruited managers定位到第一个小标题下的第一段，可知Annie Stevens表示，许多新招进公司的管理人员无法胜任新工作最大的原因之一是，他们无法融入公司原有员工的圈子，无法和原有员工相处，因此该句表述正确。
3.N 据题干中的信息词the right start定位到第一个小标题下的第三段，在第二条建议中提到，不要将接待员或其他助理人员看成自己的部下，再结合其他几点建议可知，应聘人员应平和对待接待员，不应轻视他们，而题目提到的要将其视为未来的老板，显然言过其实。
5.what/all you’ve got。根据题干中的信息词give up和wholesale定位到第二个小标题下的第二段，可知对于任何关系，即工作，你确实应该在彻底放弃之前评估你所得到的事物的全部价值，题干中用evaluate一词替换了原文中的同义短语assess the full value of，因此，答案为其后的what you’ve got。

Part VI Translation
87.there were no more than 30 wild tigers left here .
分析句子结构可知，所译部分应为said的宾语从句，因此其时态应与主句时态保持一致。由中文部分可知，所译部分可采用there be句型;“不过”即为不超过、仅仅，可译为no more than，“野生的”即wild。
88.have gone over that fall，most of them on purpose
中文部分强调的是走过瀑布这一事实，因此可用现在完成时来表示。在瀑布上走过，应用介词over来表示;中文部分的“他们”指代的应该是several people，“他们大多数是有意的”显然是对主语several people的补充说明，因此可译为省略谓语的省略句作主语补语;“有意的”可泽为on purpose。
89.I would have discussed the problem with you last night
分析句意可知，给出的英文部分为省略if的倒装虚拟条件句，因此所译部分也应为虚拟语气，表示对“昨晚”的过去事实的虚拟，谓语应为would have done的形式。
90.that were almost ten times larger than a normal human foot
结合中英文可知，所译部分应为footprints的后置定语或定语从句。“正常人脚”应为a normal human foot;“是……的十倍大”可译为ten times larger than、ten times as large as、ten times the size of，故此处还可译为that were almost ten times as large as a normal human foot或that were almost ten times the size of a normal human foot。
91.in which the hero had only a limited time to live
结合中英文可知，所译部分应为以stories为先行词的定语从句。由中文部分可确定从句的主语应为“主人公”，即hero;“故事中的”则应译为in which，其中关系代词which指代的自然为stories;“有限的时光”应译为a limited time，表示一段时间。
