London (CNN) There is no God -- that's the conclusion of the well-known physicist Stephen Hawking, whose final book is published on Tuesday. The book Brief Answers to the Big Questions, which was completed by his family after his death, presents answers to the questions that Hawking said he received most during his time on Earth.
Other bombshells(爆炸性事件)the British scientist left his readers with include the belief that alien life is out there, artificial intelligence could outsmart humans and time travel can't be impossible.
While Hawking spoke of his lack of belief in God during his life, several of his other answers are more surprising. \
In remarks prepared by Hawking and played at the launch of the book in London on Monday, the scientist also turned his attention to the world he was leaving behind. His greatest concern, his daughter said, \

Chinese researchers say they have come up with a simple way to find out a person’s biological age —how much the body has aged physically – through a urine (尿) test.
Their findings will help researchers conduct numbers of ageing studies and even predict a person’s risk of age-related diseases, according to a paper published in the journal Frontiers in Ageing Neuroscience.
Another paper by researchers at the Beijing Hospital and the West China Hospital in Chengdu, Sichuan province, said on Tuesday that people aged at different rates due to changes in their genetic make-up and their environment.
Chronological age –which is based on one’s birth date —was not an exact measure of biological age so a more exact method was needed, the team said.
Ageing is driven by the lifelong gradual accumulation(积累) of a broad variety of molecular (分子) faults in the body’s cells. The team said they had identified a matter 8-oxoGsn that indicated increases in oxidative (氧化性) damage in urine as people’s bodies aged.
ianping, a co-author at the Beijing Hospital, said: “As we age, we suffer increasing oxidative damage and so the levels of oxidative matters increase in our body.” The team tested the levels of 8-oxoGsn in urine samples from 1,228 Chinese people aged two to 90 and concluded the marker helped accurately determine the stage of biological ageing in adults.
They had previously found that 8-oxoGsn levels also increased with age in the urine of animals such as mice.
eam has also developed a rapid analysis technique called ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography(层析法), which can process up to 10 urine samples an hour, according to the study.
28.Scientifically speaking, by what does a doctor judge the stage of a person getting old?
A. His psychology.
B. His condition.
C. His biological age.
D. His chronological age.
29.What are the outer factors the speed of one’s ageing physically depend on?
A. One’s birth date.
B. The changes in their genetic make-up and their environment.
C. The accumulation of various molecular faults in the body’s cells.
D. The increases in oxidative damage in urine.
30.Which can take the place of the underlined word “marker” in the sixth paragraph?
A. Molecular faults.
C. Oxidative damage.
D. Stage of biological ageing in adults.
31.What is the passage about?
A. Why people are ageing.
B. What determines the stage of people’s ageing physically.
C. A rapid method with which to judge how much people are aging physically.
D. How to delay people’s ageing physically.
I start every summer with the best of intentions: to attack one big book from the past, a classic that I was supposed to have read when young and ambitious. Often the pairings of books
and settings have been purely unthinking: \
or televisions in the rooms, and little to do beyond row on the salt pond. Attempting \
But this summer I find myself at a loss. I’m not quite interested in Balzac, say, or “Trist ram Shandy.” There’s always War and Peace, which I've covered some distance several times, only
to get bogged down in the \
to simply fall back on a favorite once more into “The Waves” or “Justine,” which feels almost like cheating, too exciting and too much fun to properly belong in serious literature.
And then there’s Stendhal’s “The Red and the Black,” which happens to be the name of my favorite cocktail of the summer, created by Michael Cecconi at Savoy and BackForty. It is easy to drink, and knocking back three or four seems like such a delightful idea. Cecconi's theory:
32.What can we infer about the author from the first paragraph?
A. He enjoys reading when traveling.
B. He shows talents for literature.
C. He has a cottage in New England.
D. He admires a lot of great writers.
33.What do the underlined words \
A. Get confused
B. Make no progress.
C. Be interrupted
D. Be carried away.
34.Why does the author say reading his favorite books feels like cheating?
A. He finishes them quickly.
B. He has read them many times before.
C. He hardly understands them.
D. He is reading something serious.
35.What can be a suitable title for the text?
A. To Read or Not to Read
B. My Summer Holidays
C. The Books of Summer
D.It’s Never Too Late to Read
Do arithmetic(算术) problems 15 through 25. State the different forms of the verbs on page
50 of your French workbook. Read pages 12 through 20 of the Shakespeare play, and don’t forget
to fill in the missing chemical symbols on the worksheet.
Sound like a list of your homework for the next few nights—or maybe even just for tonight?
36 . It’s your teachers’ way of evaluating how much you understand what’s going on in class. And it helps strengthen important concepts.
37 . It’s attractive to start with the easy things to get them out of the way. However, you’ll have the most energy and focus when you begin, so it’s best to use this mental power on the subjects that are most challenging. Later, when you’re more t ired, you can focus
on the simpler things. If you get stuck on a problem, try to figure it out as well as you can—but don’t spend too much time on it because this can mess up your homework schedule for the rest
of the night. 38 . But don’t pick someone whom you’ll be up all night chatting with,
or you’ll never get it done!
Most people’s attention spans(一段时间) aren’t very long, so take some breaks while doing your homework. Sitting for too long without relaxing will make you less productive than if you
