My childhood left three months ago on a plane to Austria.
It was a 36 day when my baby cousins moved away. My cousins were a fundamental part of my life; 37 they were not with me, they were on my mind. They brought back the untroubled days of my childhood, 38 games, adventures and silliness, but they also helped 39 me from an at-times selfish teenager into a responsible adult.
My aunt and uncle moved here from Boston with their 1-year-old daughter Yasmeen. They lived in an apartment on the side of our house and I was 40 to have our family, especially a baby girl, so close to us. Yasmeen had close friendships with each of my sisters, but I knew the one that 41 between us was the strongest. As she began to walk on her own and talk in full sentences, I realized my great 42 upon her. I noticed that she’d 43 some of my unpleasant actions, 44 with her mother after I had done the same. Yasmeen made me realize what being a good 45 really was.
When Maya was born, Yasmeen had a hard time ___46 . She was jealous（妒忌）of the attention we all paid to her new younger sister, so I did my best to keep her company when she might have not been 47 . Once Yasmeen overcame her jealousy, she was able to 48 Maya’s presence, like we all did. I tried to take advantage of our times together, doing my best to 49 my schedule for my two favorite people.
My 50__ with Yasmeen and Maya has taught me the importance of influential people. I know that I have helped Yasmeen and Maya __51 , but “the babies” have had an even greater influence on my own life. They have shown me how to be a parent, a sister, a child, and most importantly, a friend. Our 52 has made me a better person—a more patient person, with the ability to 53 endless questions and spilled（洒）juice; an 54 person, able to have fun and be happy with others; a role model, 55 the babies ideas about right and wrong, and a compassionate person, able to forgive and love.

When a fire happened in East Africa’s biggest second-hand clothes market in Nairobi, Kenya last week, the manager William Ruto, went there at once to tell traders that the government would do everything to help them to rebuild their business.
But perhaps Ruto should have answered a more important question: whether Gikomba market will be in business a year from now if a ban on the importation of second-hand clothes into east Africa comes into force.
In January, east African head of states suggested that Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania should stop importing used clothes to help the local textile industry.
Kenya alone imports around 100,000 tonnes of second-hand clothes a year ---many of which were sent to shops in the west. An Oxfam-owned second-hand clothes shop in Senegal sees, for example, a Forever 21 dress once worn by a young woman in London find its way into the room of a university student In Kenya. But if the ban goes through, Kenyans will be forced to buy locally produced clothes, giving textile producers a chance to re-enter the market they lost to cheap imports from abroad.
The collapse of Kenya’s textile industry dates back to the early 1980s, when it opened up the local market to second-hand clothes. The clothes soon caught the eye of the young population, leading to the collapse of many of Kenya s textile factories.
According to local media reports, there were 500,000 people working in the textile industry in the 1980s. Today, that number has fallen by more than 96% to around 20,000.
Banning the importation of used clothes is the government’s latest effort to save an industry and to recreate some of those lost jobs. But, a ban could hurt another group of Kenyans who depend on the second-hand clothes trade to make a living.
58. Why will some African countries stop importing used clothes?
A. They are not good enough. B. They are sold at high prices.
C. They are not popular with the locals. D. They do no good to the local industry.
59. What was Kenya’s textile industry like before the 1980s?
A. It developed very slowly. B. It produced very cheap clothes.
C. It played a role in creating Jobs. D. It produced clothes especially for young people.
60. What does the author think of the importation ban?
A. It won’t come into force. B. It can’t save the textile industry.
C. It is a wonderfully wise decision. D. It has advantages and disadvantages.
People have speculated（思索）for centuries about a future without work. Some imagine that
the coming work-free world will be defined (定义) by inequality: A few wealthy people will own all the capital, and the masses will struggle in a wasteland. A different prediction holds that
without jobs to give their lives meaning, future people will simply become lazy and depressed.
But it doesn’t necessarily follow from findings like these that a world without work would be filled with dissatisfaction. Such visions are based on the downsides of being unemployed in a society built on the concept of employment. In the absence of work, a society designed with other ends in mind could provide strikingly different circumstances for the future of labor and leisure.
These days, spare time is relatively rare for most workers. “When I come home from a hard day’s work, I often feel tired,” says John Danaher, a lecturer at the National University of Ireland, adding, “In a world in which I don’t have to work, I might feel rather different”—perhaps different enough to throw himself into a hobby with the enthusiasm usually reserved for professional matters.
Daniel Everett, an anthropologist（人类学家）ntley University studied a group of hunter-gathers in the Amazon called the Piraha for years. According to Everett, while some might consider hunting and gathering work, hunter-gatherers don’t. “They think of it as fun,” he says. “They don’t have a concept of work the way we do.”
Everett described a typical day for the Piraha: A man might get up, spend a few hours fishing, have a barbecue, and play until the evening.
Does this relaxing life lead to the depression and purposelessness seen among so many of today’s unemployed? “I’ve never seen anything like depression there, except people who are
physically ill,” Everett says. While many may consider work necessary for human life, work as it
exists today is a relatively new invention in the course of human culture. “We think it’s bad to
just sit around with nothing to do,” says Everett. “For the Piraha, it's quite a desirable state.”
61. Which of the following can describe people’s predictions about the work-free world?
A. Optimistic. B. Negative. C. Accurate. D. Alarming.
62. What does the underlined word “downsides” in Paragraph 2 probably mean?
A. Risks. B. Reasons. C. Challenges. D. Disadvantages.
63. What might John Danaher agree with?
A. Work is the most important thing in life.
B. People don't know how to balance work and life.
C. People may live a charmed life in a work-free future.
D. Higher unemployment makes life tougher for workers.
64. Why is Daniel Everett’s study mentioned?
A. To prove John Danaher’s opinion. B. To show a future life without work.
C. To compare different opinions on work. D. To introduce a special group in the Amazon.
If you were to look at the pictures of my early years, you would be left with the impression that I was a happy child. You couldn't miss the extra large set of buck teeth (龅牙).
One of the many nicknames my father gave me was Bucky Beaver. To Dad, and to me, Bucky Beaver was an expression of love straight from the heart. Unfortunately, my younger brother, John didn't work under the same rules. “Hey, Bucky Beaver!” John would say as he rocketed past my friends and me on his bike. Occasionally, when we were old enough to walk to the corner ice cream store, where all the cool kids hung out, I would wait for my order at the walk-up window. Then I'd hear, “Order for Bucky Beaver!” and see my brother running off. My appetite gone, I would return home, defeated.
It seems that I could do nothing to change his taunts (嘲弄的言语). He used to call me Smelly Kelley. To avoid any truth behind that name, all I had to do was routinely bathe. However, the teeth, although I brushed them every day, still stuck out.
Even my mom, who was supposed to be my advocate, crossed the line. When she sent our school pictures to my grandparents in Seattle, Mom would call first. “I sent the kids' school pictures to you today,” Mom would say in an apologetic tone. “Yes.” she continued. “Kelley? Uh huh...well,”th a nervous laugh—“we’re hoping she’ll grow into them.” She wasn't talking about my feet.
When I was eight years old, three-quarters of my front left tooth was knocked out and ended up in the dirt while I was playing on the school playground. I didn't feel shocked by the fact that I had lost part of my tooth. To me, it was just one more in a line of many that had already fallen out, or were on their way. Losing a tooth up to that point had been a cause for celebration, but I got an entirely new reaction when I opened the door to my house after school that day. “Hi, Mom!” I yelled, smiling extra wide to show off my new look. “Oh, my God!” Mom said. She was shocked and pale-faced, staring down at me.
The next thing I remember is that I was lying in a chair at the dentists. The good dentist announced there was no way to save the tooth because what could have been saved was still lying somewhere in the dirt on the school playground. Regardless, a crown(齿冠 the way to go. A shiny silver half-crown covered what remained of my left center buck tooth. Things didn’t improve when it graduated to a full-sized crown. It didn’t change the fact that my teeth still stuck out.
My protests (抗议) about my brother’s name-calling about my teeth fell on deaf ears until
the summer before the sixth grade. That’s when my parents finally acknowledged my “condition” was not going to improve on its own. That’s when the idea of braces (牙箍) was first introduced.
Finally, the big day arrived. Once again found myself lying in a chair knew it would be worth it to finally be able to avoid my brother’s taunting. Once I got home, I inspected Dr. Ellis’
At that moment my brother came. Silently, John eyed my transformation. He knew the days of Bucky Beaver were officially over. But then his eyes slowly began to narrow, and the corner of his mouth curled up slightly. Squaring(使…变平) his shoulders, John turned and positioned
himself for a quick getaway, as he yelled back over his shoulder, “Hey! Brace Face!”
65. What did John do at the ice cream store?
A. He treated cool kids to ice creams.
B. He asked the author to go home for dinner.
C. He teased the author in the presence of other kids.
D. He specially ordered an ice cream for the author.
