A blog is an online journal where a person can post his thoughts and opinions for others to read. These days almost everyone from Bill Gates to your niece has a blog, and these millions of journals make great hunting grounds for candidates.
Often there will be an About Me page with the blog that gives you an author introduction. This might provide details such as degrees, work experience or other credentials. Scanning blogs for candidates can help you identify people who are at the top of their game and sharing their knowledge with others.
You might also start your own blog as a way to find and talk with job seekers. Keep it up to date with interesting news, ideas and thoughts. As people find you online, they will often come back regularly to see your latest posting. Here lies the start of a great candidate relationship.
Online networking is also a great way to interact with promising hires. Check out sites such as Ryaze.com or Ecademy.com where you can make business connections with people all over the world. You can grow your network faster and more easily online than you can through traditional face-to-face events, and you can schedule networking activities whenever it's convenient for you, whether that's 6 in the morning or 3 in the afternoon.

If you're a yoga practitioner(实践者), you've probably noticed the ways yoga works — you're sleeping better, getting fewer colds or just feeling more relaxed and at ease. But if you've ever tried telling a beginner how it works, you might find explanations like "It increases the flow of prana" or "It brings energy up your spine" fall on skeptical ears.
As it happens, Western science is starting to provide some concrete clues as to how yoga works to improve health, heal aches and pains, and prevent sicknesses. Once you understand them, you'll have even more motivation to step onto your mat.
I myself have experienced yoga's healing power in a very real way. Weeks before a trip to India in 2002 to investigate yoga therapy, I developed numbness and tingling (刺痛) in my right hand. After first considering scary things like a brain tumor and multiple sclerosis(多发性硬化), I figured out that the cause of the symptoms was thoracic outlet syndrome, a nerve blockage in my neck and chest.
Despite the uncomfortable symptoms, I realized how useful my condition could be during my trip. While visiting various yoga therapy centers, I would submit myself for evaluation and treatment by the various experts, try their suggestions and see what worked for me.
Thanks to the techniques I learned in India, advice from teachers in the United States, and my own exploration, my chest is more flexible than it was, my posture has improved, and for more than a year, I've been free of symptoms.
My experience inspired me to dig into the scientific studies I'd collected in India as well as the West to identify and explain how yoga can both prevent disease and help you recover from it.
24.What is the author probably?
A.A journalist. B. A salesman. C. A teacher. D. A physician.
25.Which will further motivate a yoga beginner to step onto the mat?
A.Personal feelings. B. Professional terms.
C. Western medicine. D. Scientific evidence.
26.What does the author mainly base on to persuade people to practise yoga?
A.His own experiences. B. Experts’ evaluation.
C. Teachers’ suggestions. D. Practitioners’ exploration.
27.What might the text be followed by?
A.Scientific studies you should do. B. Ways yoga improves your health.
C. The author’s trip to India. D. The author’s recovery from illness.
Experts predict nine billion people will live on our planet by 2050. They say by that time demand for food will be two times what it is now. Officials are worried about that prediction because many people already suffer from a lack of food. More than 800 million people go to bed hungry.
A solution(解决办法)to the problem may be as close as our forests. A new report says forests could help
reduce hunger and improve nutrition if they are properly managed.
Bhaskar Vira is the director of the University of Cambridge Conservation Research Institute and an expert with the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO). It recently released a report at the United Nations about forest and jungle foods.
Mr. Vira says crops that grow on trees can help feed people living in and around forests. “It’s like an insurance policy. Having access to those tree-based foods is hugely important when you can’t buy food from other sources or when you can’t produce food because your fields have failed.”
The report says that forest health and economic value improves when people who live in or near forests are given greater control of them. For example, a project in Ghana aims for proper management of forests and fields together. The people involved hope to grow the Allanblackia plant. The oil from its seed can be used in soap, beauty products and food.
Okai Michael Henchard leads the project. He says he will help people who live nearby. He says they earn money and get trees on their land. The trees provide shade and improve air quality. Mr. Henchard says the project also helps fight climate change.
28.What are officials worried about in the future?
A.Pollution and starvation. B. Population and health.
C. Great demand for food. D. Sharp decrease of forests.
29.Which can settle the problem discussed in the text, according to Mr. Vira?
A. Living conditions. B. Insurance policies.
C. Tree-based foods. D. Farming fields.
30.What is the initial purpose of the project in Ghana?
A.To manage forests and fields. B. To grow the Allanblackia plant.
C. To produce more oil. D. To beautify the environment.
31.What would be the best title for the text?
A.A Solution to Controlling Population B. Forests Can Help Feed the World
C. The Importance of Forest Health D. The Project in Ghana Helps Natives
Halloween is a holiday full of tricks and treats and all things frightening and fun. But what happens when you trade your sweets for a scare? The result is always healthier than candy.
Being frightened can be good for you. Think about your favorite scary books or movies. You are scared but you just can’t resist reading or watching them. Being frightened makes your brain flood with healthy chemical substances that excite your mood and release feelings of great excitement.
When you’re frightened, your body also produces a chemical called oxytocin, which helps people bond with one another. So, if you’re at a haunted(闹鬼的) house with some pals, that experience can help solidify your
friendship. “Watch people walking out of a haunted house, and you’ll see lots of smiles and high fives,” says Dr. Margee Kerr, a sociologist who studies fear.
There is also some evidence that being scared can help a person manage stressful situations. Things like giving a presentation in front of your class or performing in a school play can make us fearful and anxious. But these experiences help build a sort of endurance to fear that makes us more confident. “You become more comfortable with the physical experience of fear, and so you’re better able to work through it during tense situations,” Kerr explains.
Though some haunting may be healthy, it’s important to remember that people experience fear in different ways. What may be fun for one person could be too scary for another. And Kerr notes that kids younger than six and or seven can’t separate real and make-believe, so seeing something frightening could have lasting, negative effects.
32.Why does the author mention “Halloween” in Paragraph 1?
A.To make a suggestion. B. To introduce a topic.
C. To offer an instruction. D. To present a report.
33.What does the underlined words “high fives” in Paragraph 3 mean?
A.Putting hands up to give in. B. Waving hands to say goodbye.
C. Hitting palms together to show happiness. D. Folding palms together to express thanks.
34.How is the text developed?
A.By analyzing reasons. B. By providing statistics.
C. By making comparisons. D. By giving examples.
35.What can we learn from the text?
A.We’ll feel worried if we’re scared.
B.Being frightened helps people stay closer.
C.Fearfulness controls our confidence.
D.Being scared can be good for everyone.

A feast of Greek pleasures
It's a joy to surrender to the Greek way of living. Greece's welcoming people, mouthwatering food and drink and joyful music and folk dances make 61 easy to immerse yourself into the easygoing lifestyle.
When in Greece, I eat 62 the Greeks do. Every morning, I head to a taverna and order a selection, which never gets old for me. My 63 (favor) stop is the Karayiannis Ouzo Bar, a memorable setting for a drink and snack.
When celebrating special events, 64 (especial) at weddings and baptisms, Greeks love to dance. Popular 65 (dance) include the "kalamatianos" circle dance and the "syrtaki," done with arms outstretched or 66 (throw) across one another's shoulders.
Music is not only for special events — it's part of everyday life. Wander through any town on a weekend
evening and there's a chance you'll come 67 musicians sitting around playing 68 (tradition) folk music on their bouzouki.
Greeks tend 69 (show) hospitality with drinks — often ouzo. You don't drink ouzo straight; you
add ice or water, which 70 (turn) the ouzo from clear to milky white. The last time I had it, I had a hard time holding my camera steady.

Over the last few years, my family and I started working towards a greener life. My mum and dad drive less and often take the bus to work. They are carefully to save gas when they cook. We recycle things and we give old clothes and furnitures to charities.
I believe there is a lot more we can do. For example, we will try to use fewer water by turning off the tap while we brush us teeth. Taking shorter showers will help, either.

【解析】推理判断题。根据第三段第二句作者的自我诊断和最后一段作者的深入研究，可推出作者是 a physician. 故选 D。
【解析】细节理解题。从文中第二段二句 Once you understand them, you'll have even more motivation to step onto your mat.可知是 them 触发动机，而 them 是指上句 Western science is starting to provide some concrete clues。故选 D。
【解析】细节理解题。根据第三段第一句 I myself have experienced yoga's healing power in a very real way. 和倒数二段 Thanks to …and my own exploration, my chest is more flexible than it was, my posture has improved, and for more than a year, I've been free of symptoms.可知作者以自己的亲身经历推荐读者练习瑜 伽。故选 A。
【解析】推理判断题。根据最后一段后半句 the West to identify and explain how yoga can both prevent disease and help you recover from it.可推出作者最有可能写瑜伽能提高改善身体健康的方法。故选 B。作者 的写作目是推荐读者练习瑜伽，健身又防病。所以排除选项 A。 根据二段 Weeks before a trip to India in 2002，文章已经提到去印度，可排除选项 C。 根据倒数二段最后一句 and for more than a year, I've been free of symptoms.可知作者已经提到康复。选项排除 D。

【解析】细节理解题。根据第三段…that experience can help solidify your friendship 可知受怕会让人们 的关系更亲密，故选 B 项。根据第二段 Being frightened makes your brain flood with healthy chemical substances that excite your mood and release feelings of great excitement. 可知 A 项是错的;第四段 But these experiences help build a sort of endurance to fear that makes us more confident.告诉我们承受压力使我们更自 信，但 C 项的 controls 一词不够妥帖，故 C 项也是错的。D 项的 everyone 范围太大，有以偏概全之嫌。文 末 Kerr 也指出“kids younger than six and or seven can’t separate real and make-believe, so seeing something frightening could have lasting, negative effects. ”，故 D 项是错的。
【解析】本题考查学生的行文逻辑能力，本句起承上启下作用。上文提到 a little bit of anxiety can be beneficial. “有益”体现在有助于你保持较高的积极性和注意力(motivated and focused)，进而转折说太多 的焦虑也会有不好的影响(However, too much anxiety may have a bad effect…)。故选 E。
【解析】本题考查学生的主题归纳能力，本句为主题句，本段以下句子都来说明 Develop good study habits 这一主题。故选 C。
【解析】本题考查学生的篇章结构理解能力。本段主题是 Be prepared。作者首先阐述做好准备能减少 焦虑，弄懂考试资料会让你放松，克服焦虑从而考得好。下文说临时抱佛脚会导致考试焦虑，说明此空讲 的应该是另一层意思，即如果没准备好，会导致焦虑。故选 F。
【解析】本题考查学生的主题归纳能力，本句中黑体词 Focus on doing well in the test and you probably will. Take slow and deep breaths and stay in control.对应选项 B 的关键词 positive 和 relaxed。故选 B。

四、One possible version:
Glad to hear from you. Red packets are red envelops with money in them. We youth often receive red packets from our elders in festivals. In this way they express their great love and wishes to us. This Spring Festival, I received many red packets from my parents and other relatives. It’s not the money in the red packets but their love conveyed that really matters. Having received them, I was moved and determined to work hard to live up to their
love and expectations.
What about your culture? How do elders express love and expectations to the young? Looking forward to your early reply.
Yours, Li Hua
M: My plane leaves at 8: 00, and…hey Kate, are you crying? W: Well, it's summer vacation and you're going away.
W: I need some film to take some pictures on my vacation. M: Will you be shooting mainly indoors or outdoors?
W: Outdoors. I'll be on the beach every day.
M: Is this Partelli Mattresses? I'd like to order a table for two.
W: You have the wrong number. This is a private house, not a store. What number were you trying to reach? M: 288-2351. Oh, wait—I read the listing wrong. Sorry to have bothered you.
W: It doesn't look as though these plants have been watered for a long time.
M: I came around with the watering pot just two days ago. Are you sure the leaves are getting enough light? W: Maybe that's the answer. Can you help me move this plant closer to the window?
M: Hi. My car's been making a strange noise and I seem to be losing power.
W: OK, I will have a look at it and should be able to tell you what's wrong in about an hour. M: An hour! I'm in a bit of a hurry. Do you think you can finish any sooner?
W: I'm sorry but these things take time. We'll be happy to call a taxi for you if you don't have time to wait.
M: Hi Mari. Sorry I'm late.
W: That's OK. I haven't ordered yet. So, what's new? M: Nothing much. How're things with you?
W: Same as usual. Overworked. Underpaid.
M: Oh, I’ve got this new boss. She works twenty-five hours a day, and expects everybody else to do the same. I've been working till at least ten o'clock every night this week.
W: Well, it's Friday evening now, so you can relax a bit.
W: Thank you for shopping at Dale's Clothing Store. Your total is $120. Would you like a plastic bag for your clothes?
M: No, but I need to shorten these pants. Do you provide a tailoring service, too?
W: Yes, sir. We have professionals to do that for you for an extra $5 per pair of pants. However, please be advised that once clothes are changed, they can't be returned anymore.
M: I understand. So when is the soonest time to pick up my pants? W: Well, I think tomorrow is OK.
M: What can I do for you?
W: I'd like to go to Walt Disney World, but I have never been there before. So I need your help to plan my trip.
Can you tell me some information on flights to Florida?
M: OK. Do you want to go first class, business class, or economy class? W: Oh, economy class, of course. I'd like the lowest fare you can find. M: All right. And that's one way or round trip?
W: Round trip. I'd like to leave on Sunday the 12th and return on Saturday the 18th.
M: Well, there's a very low fare. It's only $345, but it's not direct. You have to change planes in Chicago. There's a direct, nonstop flight, but the fare on that one is $680.
W: That's OK. I'll change planes in Chicago.
M: OK. That's flight 690. It departs at 8：15 a.m. on Sunday the 12th and arrives in Orlando at 12:15. W: That sounds good.
W: Hi, Mark. Can you give me some details about the meeting next month? M: OK. I'll help if I can.
W: Well, firstly, according to the schedule, when am I presenting?
M: Your presentation is on Tuesday 8th September at 10 a.m. Is that OK? W: Wednesday at 10 would be better for me.
M: Fine. I’ll change your time to Wednesday. W: Thanks. What about the hotel?
M: Everyone is staying in the Manor.
W: I’ll tell Rachel and Sam. They asked me this morning.
M: I'm going to post everybody an information paper with the meeting details, probably at the end of next week.
Please tell Rachel and Sam.
W: OK. I'll let them know. In fact, we're meeting later today at 4 so I can tell them then. M: Right. So any plans for the rest of the morning?
W: Not really. I'm just going to finish a few reports and then it's lunch.
M: Sounds good. Thanks for your call. You can get further information by e-mail. W: OK. Thanks. Bye.
W: Good afternoon, everyone. We're delighted to welcome today a representative from the Red Cross, Mr John Francis, who is going to talk to us about the work of the organisation and about some basic aspects of First Aid.
M: Thank you, Mrs Brown. Well, I'm pleased to tell you something about this organisation. The Red Cross movement was started by a businessman called Jean Henri Dunant. His interest in the innocent people caught up in war began in 1859 when he witnessed the effects of a very fierce battle in Italy. At the time, he organised all the villagers to help the wounded soldiers and make sure they had food and basic medical attention. In 1864, the same gentleman, together with four Swiss colleagues from his hometown, organised a conference which laid the foundations for the now famous organisation.
So that Red Cross workers could always be recognised, they created their own symbol. They chose a red cross on a white background. It is protected by the laws. Sometimes we find that the red cross has been used as a decorative symbol or to represent first aid stations but this is actually wrong because using the red cross for anything other than the international organisation is actually against the law. Even though we often associate a red cross with hospitals and medical treatment. In Australia, as in many countries, the recognised symbol for first aid and medical centres, in fact, is a white cross on a green background.
