??? Self-confidence is defined as a feeling of trust in one’s abilities, qualities, and? judgment. 1. Whether you apply for a promotion in work or sign up for a cooking class, believing in yourself is the key to putting yourself out there. However, not all people are born confident.2.

Stop comparing yourself to others. Whether you compare how you look to your friends on Facebook or you compare your salary to your friend’s income, comparisons aren’t healthy. Researchers found that people who compared themselves to others, experienced envy.3. It can be a terrible cycle. When you notice you are drawing comparisons, remind yourself that doing so isn’t helpful. Everyone is running their own race and life isn’t a competition.

4. . It’s hard to feel good about yourself if you’re abusing your body. Skimping on sleep, eating an unhealthy diet, and lacking exercise will do harm to your well-being. Studies consistently show physical activity boosts confidence. A 2016 study published in Neuropsychiatric Disease? and?

Embrace (拥抱) self-doubt. Sometimes, people put off doing things—like inviting someone on a date or applying for a promotion—until they feel more confident. But sometimes, the best way to gain confidence is by doing.5.. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare or practice, of course. If you have a big speech coming up, practice in front of your friends and family so you’ll gain some confidence. But don’t wait until you feel 100 percent confident before you proceed. You might never get there.

C. Embracing a little self-doubt might actually help you perform better.

D. And the more envy they experienced, the worse they felt about themselves.

E. Take regular physical exercise.

F. Fortunately, there are things you can do to gain your self-confidence.

G. Having self-confidence can help you become successful in your personal and professional life.

 

??? Measles(麻疹) is only found in human beings. There is a highly effective and safe vaccine(疫苗) for the disease. So, in theory, measles could be destroyed.

Yet the number of measles cases is on the rise.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that, in the first three months of 2019, the number of cases is three times higher than it was last year. Africa alone has had a 700 percent increase compared to last year.

The Democratic Republic of Congo reported 67,000 measles cases and 901 measles-related deaths in 2018. This year, WHO officials have noted more than 40,000 suspected measles cases in the country. That number includes 284 measles-related deaths in the first weeks of 2019. Between September 2018 and February 2019, Madagascar reported over 67,000 measles cases, including 828 deaths.

Dr. Fauci, who directs the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease in the USA, said that―one in 10 children who get infected with measles will get an ear infection that could cause deafness. One in 20 would get pneumonia. One in a thousand would get brain swelling, and one to three per thousand would die. To say that measles is a slight disease is completely incorrect.

Walter Orenstein is with the Emory University Vaccine Center in Atlanta, Georgia. He has spent his life working to end measles. Orenstein says possible effects of the disease are worse in poor countries. ―In those countries children are already at greater risk. They may be malnourished(营养不良的). They may have damaged immune systems. They may be underweight and may have no access to health care so measles is a big killer, he said.

You have a 90 percent chance of getting measles if you have not been vaccinated and you come in contact with someone who has it. Dr. Rebecca Martin is the Director of the Center for Global Health at the

U.S. Centers for Disease Control. She is working to remove measles from Africa completely.? ―It is very infectious. It will find nearly everybody who is not protected against measles, Martin said.

Health experts advise patients to get two treatments of the measles vaccine. U.S. health officials say educating parents about both the disease and the vaccine is an important step in stopping the spread. Equally important is making vaccination a top goal of health systems worldwide.

1.The writer shows the sharp increase in measles cases by .

A. giving examples B. listing figures

C. analyzing causes D. following time order

2.The following are the possible results of measles except .

A. an ear infection B. pneumonia

C. brain swelling D. being underweight

3.What can we infer from the last two paragraphs?

A. You are sure to get measles if you have not been vaccinated.

B. It is safe to come in contact with someone who has measles.

C. Parents should be educated about both the disease and the vaccine.

D. Making vaccination a goal of health systems is only necessary in Africa.

4.The purpose of the text is to .

A. show the serious situation of measles

B. prove measles could be destroyed

C. describe the result of the research on measles

D. warn us of the causes of measles

 

??? Tim Ma's parents came to the United States from Taiwan in the 1970s. They opened a restaurant. It was not a success. They found success in America, however, in computers and engineering. In part because of their own experiences, Ma's parents hoped he would study to become an engineer or doctor. They wanted financial security for their child.

Growing up, Ma considered many professions – writer, fireman, even president. But he had a sense early on... ―I didn't want to? be an engineer. However, Ma did well in math and science classes in high school and he ended up choosing to study electrical engineering in college.

Several engineering jobs later, though, Ma had a change of heart. He wanted to leave the engineering world behind and enter the restaurant business. It was in his blood. After all, his parents had owned a Chinese restaurant in Arkansas. His uncle also owned one in New York.

His parents, Ma says, could not understand why he would want to leave such a good job to open a restaurant. They had worked long hours but their own restaurant still failed. They kept asking, ―Why?

But Ma remained certain. He was going to do things differently than his parents. He was able to learn from their one major mistake as restaurant owners – they knew very little about the art of cooking. So, at age 30, Ma left engineering and returned to school – cooking school.

Ma soon learned that he enjoyed cooking. In 2009, Ma opened his first restaurant in Virginia. It is called Maple Avenue. At Maple Avenue, Ma cooked, cleaned the ovens, fixed equipment and paid bills. He worked long hours, seven days a week. His long hours paid off. Ma opened his fourth restaurant last year, Kyirisan in Washington, D.C.

Kyirisan's success is due to the creative menu and food, Ma says. But mostly it just comes from completely hard work. ―I think in this country you can create your own success, just by working hard. Not because you're smarter than anybody, not because you're more creative than anybody, just by working hard. And I think that's why a lot of people end up coming to America.

1.Why did Ma’s parents want him to become an engineer or doctor?

A. Their family had found success in engineering for generations.

B. They were tired of running a restaurant.

C. They thought it financially secure to be an engineer or doctor.

D. They wanted him to try a career different from theirs.

2.Why do a lot of people come to America?

A. They can learn many things. B. They can run their business creatively.

C. They can choose jobs freely. D. They can succeed through hard work.

3.What can be the best title for the text?

A. A suitable job B. Follow your heart

C. A successful business D. Create your own business

 

??? A dog found swimming more than 220 kilometers off the coast of Thailand has been returned safely to land.

Late last week, workers on an oil rig(钻井平台) noticed the animal, all alone, in the water. It began swimming toward the side of the rig. The dog was able to get itself onto a solid area.

He appeared cold, tired and fearful. The workers lowered a rope and secured it around the dog. Then, they worked together to pull the animal up to safety.

The crew that found the dog quickly gave their new friend a name: Boonrod. The name means something similar to ―one who survives in a disaster in the Thai language.

One of those workers was Vitisak Payalaw. He has been providing updates on Boonrod on his Facebook page. He said it was lucky that the crew noticed the dog in the water. If there had been waves, he said, the animal would not have been seen.

No one knows how Boonrod ended up all alone at sea, or how long he had been out there. But Vitisak and others have guessed the animal might have fallen off a fishing boat.

On Monday, Boonrod arrived on dry land. A team of animal doctors was waiting for him in the southern Thai province of Songkhla. Workers at the Songkhla port also welcomed the dog with neck rubs and a special ―welcome necklace made of yellow flowers. Many people took pictures with Boonrod.

Vitisak wrote on Facebook, ―Today (April 15), a ship transporting the dog arrived onshore at around 10.am. His overall condition has improved. He is getting stronger and can smile.

The dog is now in the care of an animal doctor in Songkhla. The animal protection group Watchdog Thailand said he is in good condition and getting stronger. On Tuesday, the group published pictures of Boonrod getting washed — and getting plenty of love and attention.

Vitisak says that if no one claims Boonrod as their pet, he will take him with him to his home in northeast Thailand.

1.What does the dog’s name ―Boonrod mean?

A. Good luck. B. Love. C. Welcome. D. Survivor.

2.What can we learn from the text?

A. The dog was not in good condition when discovered.

B. The waves helped the workers discover the dog.

C. The dog had been at sea for a very long time.

D. The dog had fallen off a fishing boat.

3.Who is attending the dog now?

A. .Vitisak Payalaw. B. A worker on the rig.

C. An animal doctor. D. Watchdog Thailand.

??? There are about 6500 languages spoken throughout the worldbut about half of them are in danger of disappearing.
