When I was about 5 years old, I experienced my very first random act of kindness. I was sitting at the roadside one evening, crying alone for some reason when suddenly, a boy came up to me and gave me a plastic rose, I remember the moment when I took the rose from his hand; I was smiling from ear to ear, whispering “I want to be like him” to myself as I watched him walking away.
From then on, I made it as my life mission to do random acts of kindness whenever I can. I was very determined to make other people smile. That was the only reason why I joined my school’s Red Crescent Society and became a volunteer. Unfortunately, not everyone thinks in the same way as I did. Whenever I do something nice to others, people around me will start to judge my actions. Often I will just keep quiet and ignore what they say, but every once in a while, they do drive me up the wall.
These people like to complain about how humans nowadays are lacking of humanities and compassion. However, when they actually see somebody doing a good deed in front of them, they start to question and criticize that person’s honesty. Perhaps it is the increasing crime rate and the never-ending rat race that caused them to be so suspicious to nice strangers. In other words, people nowadays have lost sight of the real meaning of kindness and just let it go unnoticed. That is why I think random acts of kindness are really important. These selfless acts are not only capable of bringing joy to the recipients but also to the givers. Because of this, I want to help spread the idea of these random acts to the whale world. I want to show the people how the little things they give could make a big difference in someone else’s life.

Corporate culture is the values and beliefs a company develops over time. The role of corporate culture is to improve a company’s mission and strategies, with long-term hopes of improvements in a company’s profit. Mostly corporate culture comes from a company’s top management.
One role of corporate culture is to influence employee behavior, honesty, and compliance（服从）. A company does not have to necessarily create a direct influence for these actions. A direct influence may be a set of written regulations or other policies, and while these may be in place, the corporate culture is usually more of an indirect influence.
While many companies try to create corporate culture through the use of written policies, its role is harder to define. The human factor has an influence on how corporate culture is expressed. The way upper management acts and reacts to various situations defines how lower-level employees will act, and this aspect may be more important than any written policy.
A company’s corporate culture can also extend beyond the walls of the business. Consumers who believe a company to be honest and forthright（直率）may be more loyal in their buying behavior. Employees in a company’s customer service department can also exhibit positive corporate culture to outside individuals. In this case, the culture creates a link between the company’s employees and its customers. How customers react may be a direct result from the company’s corporate culture.
Product quality can also be influenced by a company’s corporate culture. Companies that focus only on profits may decide to avoid high-quality materials in products, but try to suggest that the products are of higher quality than they really are. This negative culture can then result in lower brand loyalty with consumers.
28. What do we know about corporate culture from this passage?
A. It is a set of rules and regulations. B. It is the way the employees act.
C. It is the values and beliefs of a company. D. It is the long term hope of a company.

A. Making a set of rules and regulations. B. Setting an example for the employees.
C. Learning the corporate culture regularly. D. Encouraging the employees to work harder.
30. What can we infer from the fourth paragraph?
A. The customer is always right. B. Corporate culture has different functions.
C. Without corporate culture, a company will die. D. Positive corporate culture can promote sales.
31. Which word can describe the companies mentioned in the last paragraph?
A. Creative. B. Efficient. C. Dishonest. D. Disloyal.
Feelings often run high where insects are concerned, with many people even sick when seeing them, let alone touch or swallow them. And yet insects present a huge nutritional opportunity as an increasing global population seeks more sources of food and feed.
Insects have generally high levels of animal protein and key micronutrients with lower environmental footprints than traditional alternatives, and they can be raised on leftovers. But cultural, social and economic problems remain, reports an article published today in Nutrition Bulletin.
“Insects present a nutritional opportunity, but it is unclear how their nutritional quality is influenced by what they are fed,” says Darja Dobermann, a researcher at the University of Nottingham. “In ideal conditions, insects have a smaller environmental impact than most traditional western forms of animal protein; less known is how to raise insect production while maintaining these environmental benefits.”
“Studies overall show that insects could make valuable economic and nutritional contributions to the food or feed systems, but there are no clear regulations in place to bring insects into such supply systems without them turning into a more expensive version of poultry（家禽）for food,” says Dobermann.
The article highlights how insects have been a source of food for hundreds of years in more than 100 countries with over 2,000 species that can be eaten; in central Africa, up to 50% of dietary protein has come from insects, with their market value higher than many alternative sources of animal protein.
Insects need to be large enough to make the effort of catching them worthwhile and easy to locate, preferably in predictably large quantities. They are consumed at various life stages, as raw, fried, boiled, roasted or ground food.
32. Which of the following is the advantage of raising insects for food?
A. It will offer people work opportunities. B. It is environmentally friendly.
C. It will replace traditional food. D. It will result in less leftovers
33. What can be inferred from Dobermann’s words?
A. Raising insects for food has become popular.
B. Raising insects can’t solve food problems.
C. More should be done to raise insects for food.
D. More money can be made by raising insects.
34. What does the underlined word in paragraph 4 stand for?
A. Insects. B. Regulations.
C. Feed systems. D. Supply systems.
35. Which is the possible title of this passage?
A. How to Raise Insects B. Raising Insects for Money
C. Insects Seem No Longer Ugly D. A New Source of Food

I am writing to tell you something about my hometown, which is now making every effort to develop its tourism.
Located in the north of China, only 200 kilometers south of Beijing, my hometown is famous for its long history and brilliant culture. There are many ancient residential buildings dating back to the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Several temples and pagodas are more than 1,000 years old. Some pagodas and Buddha halls were specially built and you can not see this kind of buildings in other parts of China. The murals in the temples are fine and beautiful. In short, my hometown is well worth a visit.
I sincerely invite you to my hometown if it is convenient.
