  In a study of older people with sisters andbrothers, psychologist Debra Gold of the Duke Center for the study of aging andhuman development found that about 20% said they were hostile or indifferent toward their sisters and brothers. Reasons for this ranged from inheritancedisputes to hostility between spouses. But, many of those who had poorrelationships felt guilty. Although most people admitted to some lingeringrivalry, it was rarely strong enough to end the relationship. Only four out ofthe 54 people interviewed had completely broken with their sisters and brothersand only one of the four felt comfortable with the break. As sisters andbrothers advanced into old age, closeness increases and rivalry diminishes,explains VC, a psychologist at Purdue University. Most of the elderly people heinterviewed said they had supportive and friendly dealings and got along wellor very well with their sisters and brothers. Only 4% got along poorly. Goldfound that as people age, they often become more involved with and interestedin their sisters and brothers. 53% of those she interviewed said that contactwith their sisters and brothers increase innate adulthood. With family andcareer obligations reduced, many said that they had more time for each other.Others said that they felted with time to heal wounds.

Everyyear in the late summer, monarch begin their migration to the south, thoseheading for Mexico go first for the Louisiana Mississippi region. And then theyfly to go across Mexico into Texas. Once in Mexico, they establish themselvesin one of about 15 sizes in the mountain forth. Each side provides the winterhome for millions of monarchs. The butterflies are so numerous that they oftencover the entire trees. When spring comes, they began their long journey north.The question is often asked whether every butterfly makes the round tripjourney every year. And the answer is no. The average monarch lives about ninemonth. So when fly the north, they might lay eggs in Louisiana and die. Theeggs of that following generation may be found in Kentucky, the eggs of nextgeneration may be in the Kang Michigan. The last generation of the season aboutthe forth may make the journey back in Mexico and restart the cycle.

  Passage three

  Questions 26 to 29 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  People nowadays seem to have the sense thattheir time has become more limited. Compared with early generations we spendmore and more time working and have less and less free time to engage inleisure pursues. But this premise turns out to be an illusion. the mostcomprehensive data from major Time Use Service suggests, if anything, Americanstoday have more free time than the early generations. The number of hours wework has not changed much, but we spend less time now on home tasks. So we havea great amount of time for leisure than in decades past. so why do we feel liketime so scare. One problem is that time becomes more valuable and time becomesmore worth money. we feel like we have less of it. workers who bill or get paidby the hour, think employer and fast-food workers, report focusing more onpursuing more money than those who get paid by salary and the fact has beenfast. In one experiment, people were told to play the role of consultant andbill their time by either nine dollars an hour or ninety dollars an hour. Whenpeople billed their time by ninety dollars an hour they report feeling far morepriced for time. Thinking about our time as money, changes are our behavior aswell. in one study, people who were instructed to think about money beforeentering a cafe spent less times chatting with the other patrons and more timeworking. Those who are thinking their time did reverse spending time socializinginstead of working。

  Farmington, Utah, is a more pleasant community since a local girls' 4-H club improved Main Street. Six 4-H girls worked to clean the 72 foot curbside that was covered with weeds, rocks and trash. Each member volunteered to clean up and to dig in plot, five flats of flowers. They also took terms in watering, weeding and maintaining the plot. Participation in this project helped the girls developed a new attitude towards their parents of their own homes; they've learned how to work with tools, and improve their work habits. One mother said that before her daughter was involved in this project, she would not even pour a weed. The experience on Main Street stimulated self-improvement, and encouraged members to take pride in their home grounds and the total community. City officials cooperated with the 4-H members in planting trees, building cooking facilities, pick-me tables, swings and public rest rooms. The 4-H girls planted trees and took care of them during the early stages of growth. The total park project needed more plantings in the following years. Members of the 4-H club agreed to follow the project through to completion, because they receive satisfaction from the results of constructive work. The project is a growing one and is spread from the park to the school and the shopping center. Trees and flowers have all been planted in the shopping center, making the atmosphere pleasant。

  The first copy right law in the United Stateswas passed by congress in 1790. In 1976, congress enacted the latest copy rightlaw, taking into consideration the technological developments that had occurredsince the passage of the copy right act of 1909. For example, in 1909 anyonewho wanted to make a single copy of a literary work for personal use had to doso by hand. The very process imposed a limitation on the quantity of materials copied.Today, a photo copier can do the work in seconds. The limitation hasdisappeared. The 1909 Law did not provide full protection for films and soundrecordings nor did it anticipate the need to protect radio and television. As aresult, violations of the law and abuses of the intent of the law have lessenedthe financial rewards of authors, artists and producers. The 1976 copy rightact has not prevented these abuses fully, but it has clarified the legal rightsof the injured parties and given them an avenue for remedy. Since 1976 the acthas been amended to include computer software and guidelines have been adoptedfor fair use of television broadcasts. These changes have cleared up much ofthe confusion and conflict that followed in the wake of 1976 legislation. Thefine points of the law are decided by the courts and by acceptable commonpractice overtime. As these decisions and agreements are made, we modify ourbehavior accordingly. For now, we need to interpret the law and its guidelinesas accurately as we can and to act in a fair manner。

  Passage 3

  Thank you for coming, everyone. Today’s presentation will show how we see the development of the motor car in the short to medium term, and that is why we have invited all of you here today. Let’s start with power. It’s clear that petrol-driven engines have no future. Already there are many alternative fuel vehicles on the market, powered by anything from solar power to natural gas. Some independent thinkers have even produced cars that run on vegetable oil. But as we all know, of all these alternative fuel vehicles, the most practical are electric vehicles. Sure, in the past electric vehicles have their problems, namely, a limited driving range, and very few recharging points, which limited their use. Now, however, recent developments in electric vehicle technology mean they can match conventional petrol engines in terms of performance and safety. Let’s not forget that electric vehicles are cleaner. Plus, importantly, the power source is rechargeable, so this does not involve using any valuable resources. Moving on to communications, very soon, cars will be linked to GPS satellites, so they’ll do all the driving for you. What controls remain for the users will be audio-based, so, for example, you’ll just have to say “a bit warmer”, and the air conditioning will adjust automatically. You’ll also be able to receive email, music and movies, all via an internet link. So just type in the destination you want, sit back, sleep, watch your movie, whatever。

  Questions 33-35 are based on the passage you have just heard。

  33. What is the presentation mainly about?

  34. What used to restrict the use of electric vehicles?

  35. What does the speaker say about electric vehicles of today?
