第三部分 阅读理解(共20小题; 每小题2分, 满分40分)
Celebrities(名人)have become a powerful influence on some people because of their social position and their economic situation.
First, some people admire and imitate stars because they allow themselves to be influenced by the media. Television, radio, and magazines invade(侵扰)the lives of audience with a variety of shows, information, and publications about stars and their lives. For instance, Britney Spears has become the target of paparazzi(狗仔队). In May, Britney appeared at the front page of the most popular magazines revealing that she married her best friend in Vegas, Nevada. Media also invade stars’ lives because reporters know they get high profits from readers who buy and follow their favorite artists’ news.
Second, some mad audience imitate their celebrities for their lack of confidence. Some people who are shy and lack personalities may find that imitating others will cause a good impression. For instance, my cousin Jenny, who lacks a social life because of her introverted(内向的)personality, believes that acting and dressing like Jennifer Lopez will make her popular in high school.
Finally, several fans of stars imitate them because of peer(同龄人)pressure. Since my niece’s girl friends formed an Antonio Banderas’ fan club, she had also joined the group. Although she wasn’t a huge fan of his, now she collects most of Banderas’ possessions. In fact, when I asked Arianna, my niece, why she was part of Banderas’ fan club, she replied with a doubtful tone that she did not wish to be rejected by the other teens.
In conclusion, it is true that celebrities play spectacular roles in their performances in Hollywood, which entertains many people all over the world; however, modern celebrities influence the audience to the point where their fans admire and try to imitate their lives.

This year is the seventh anniversary of the Olympic bid, which brought promises of reconstruction and improvements in East London. It was hoped that the area would experience more funding, higher employment, better tourism and greener environment. Yet is that the truth?
According to a study done on the role of sports in funding local communities, there is little evidence about the good effects of such sports events on local communities. Rather, huge Olympic projects take funding away from local communities. For example, the National Lottery(彩票)is contributing￡2. 2 billion to the Olympics. Sir Clive Booth, chairman of the Big Lottery Fund, commented on that, “I regret very much that it has been necessary to shift a further￡425 m of the Big Lottery Fund to support the 2012 Olympics construction. . . ”
The Olympic Delivery Authority has promised 11, 000 new jobs, with a target of 10%~15% of the workforce to be drawn from East London. But the number of people from the East End who have received jobs remains low and local people see 85% to 90% of jobs going to outsiders. The largest area for work is in construction, with 30, 000 potential jobs. However, hiring is directly in the hands of the sub-contractor, who will simply use the cheapest labor, and not take the lead in hiring local people or give contracts to local suppliers.
If only time can truly measure the funding and employment opportunities of the Olympics, then can we be certain that the Olympics will bring a lot of tourists to the capital, benefiting the local economy? Well, we can’t. Previous Olympic hosts have overestimated the number of tourists, most recently with Beijing anticipating over 400, 000 and receiving almost half the amount.
The environment is also considered to be the pillar of Olympianism, and officials have been advertising 2012 as the greenest Olympics yet. But in reality, a lot of sacrifices have been made to see the Olympics go green. In 2000, a￡7. 8 m grant was given to Bully Fen community woodland to create a green legacy(遗产)in the area. This has now been closed to the public, along with the nearby Manor Gardens, which marked the end of the vegetable beds.
But whether we like it or not, London is the host for the 2012 Olympics. But perhaps the most important thing about the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part.
59. Sir Clive Booth’s comment tells that .
A. he is sorry about the decision made by the Big Lottery Fund
B. he is unwilling to give lottery funds to the 2012 Olympics construction
C. some funding for local communities has been used in the Olympic projects
D. too much money has been spent on the Olympic projects
60. Paragraph 3 is mainly about the 2012 Olympics’ effect on .
A. construction B. tourism
C. environment D. employment
61. The underlined word “pillar” in Paragraph 5 probably means“ ”.
A. important part B. tall column
C. long pole D. great benefit
62. What can be concluded from the passage?
A. About 400, 000 foreign tourists went to the Beijing Olympics.
B. The effects of the 2012 London Olympics have aroused arguments.
C. 85%~90% of Londoners have got jobs because of the Olympics.
D. Londoners can’t benefit from the 2012 Olympics at all.
Before leaving work, Steve Lee likes to use his cellphone to turn on his heat and air condition system at home. So by the time he gets through traffic into his front door, the temperature inside is perfect. You may wonder what a so-called smart home can do inside.

When I first went to Russia, every aspect of how the Russians did things was foreign to me. I did not do anything correctly, and my wife, a Russian, scolded me continuously because I usually embarrassed her very much. It was a wonderful learning experience, but it was trying at the same time and I was only there for a week. Later I moved to Russia to live with her in this radically(完全地)different culture. Each day contained moments of stress, depression, excitement, and wonder. It was like living on an emotional roller coaster(过山车), but I survived it and matured into a more stable and confident person because of it.
After a year, I came back to the States to prepare for her coming to America. It was very stressful re-adjusting to the fast pace of life in America, and I had another difficult time with that, but finally I got back into the rhythm of life here again. Then she came, and my rhythm was once again interrupted. The roles were reversed this time and I was the one having to coach her about how to live in America, and the roller coaster began again. I must admit that I had learned to enjoy the ride.
It is difficult enough for two individuals here in the States to combine their lives and learn to live together. Just try and imagine how much more is involved in combining two lives and combining the vast cultural differences that exist between America and Russia. The marriage would be really difficult to be survived when it comes to cross-cultural relationships because there are many, many problems that come into the relationship due to cultural differences.
I am extremely happy with my wife though, and she seems to be happy with me. We both try very hard at times to understand our differences and overcome them, but then there are times when we are just two people in love and building a family together, and we enjoy these very much. I would do this relationship again in a heartbeat, but I would sincerely like to point out the fact that a cross-cultural relationship brings more issues to the table than a like-nationality relationship would have.
