There was once a cobbler（补鞋匠）who seemed to be happy throughout the day. He could be heard singing as he worked. Whatever he got from his work was just enough for food and simple clothing, yet he was always happy.
His neighbor was a rich banker, living in a large and grand house. Unlike the cobbler, he seemed to be unhappy all the time. No one ever saw him smile or laugh. And of course he never sang.
One afternoon, while sleeping, the banker was woken up by the cobbler’s singing. Feeling angry, he thought, “I must put a stop to this!” He went over to the cobbler’s house. The cobbler greeted him cheerfully.
“What makes you sing so much?” asked the banker.
“I’m a happy man,” said the cobbler simply.
“Don’t you need more money to make you and your family happier?” asked the banker. “Don’t you want to buy more beautiful things for your family and live in a bigger house?”
“Well,” said the cobbler, “I’ve never worried about those things because I cannot afford them.”
“I’ll help you,” said the banker. “If you look after my bag of gold coins, I’ll pay you well.”
The cobbler thought that was easy. He dug a hole in his garden and hid the bag of coins in it. But now he had something to worry about. He worried that thieves might come and steal the gold coins.
He worried so much that he stopped singing. He could not eat or sleep properly. His home was silent. Seeing him so worried, his wife and children were unhappy too.
A few days later, the cobbler realized that the gold coins had destroyed his happiness. He dug up the bag of coins and gave it back to the banker. After that, he sang as happily as before.

Two men, John and Tom, both seriously ill, shared a hospital room. John was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon. His bed was next to the room’s only window. But Tom had to spend all his time flat on his back.
Every afternoon when John could sit up, he would describe to Tom all the things he could see outside the window. Tom was so attracted by the description that he could not wait for those one-hour periods. The window faced a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and birds played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm and a fine view of the city could be seen in the distance. As John described all this in detail, Tom would close his eyes and imagine the beautiful scenes.
Days and weeks passed. One morning, the nurse found that John had passed away peacefully in his sleep. The next day, Tom asked if he could be moved to the bed next to the window. The nurse was happy to do this, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, Tom supported himself up with one arm to take his first look at the real world outside, but only faced a blank wall. When the nurse came back, Tom asked her what had made John describe such wonderful things outside this window. She said that John was blind and could not even see the wall. “Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you,” she added.

Recently, a study has confirmed what I’ve long known in my heart: two breakfasts are better than none. The research on the effect of breakfast on weight gain was done on school children. But for adults, in theory, two breakfasts are also better than none.
Researchers from Yale and the University of Connecticut followed 600 middle-school students as they developed from fifth to seventh grade, nothing their weight and if they had zero breakfast, breakfast either at home or at school, or breakfast in both places. They found that weight gain among second-breakfast eaters was no different from the average gain seen among all students. Children who didn’t eat breakfast, or ate it only sometimes, were more likely to be overweight than double-breakfasters. It should be noted that only about one in ten children in the study ate two breakfasts.
The study wasn’t designed to figure out why this might be true, but the researchers have some theories: that people who don’t eat breakfast (or any meal) might overeat later in the day, and that as people become obese, they tend to reduce calories（热量） by having no breakfast.
Yes, school breakfasts are more like a healthy snack（零食） than a full meal, and growing teens can eat a large amount of food. But if you’re still not eating breakfast because you think it gives you more colories, you are not only mistaken, but you are also missing out one of life’s great pleasures.
- What do we know about the research according to Paragraph 1?
- It was about the effect of dinner on weight gain.
- Its result was opposite to the author’s opinion.
- It was done on overweight school children.
- Its result might also be true of adults.
- Which of the following is true according to Paragraph 2?
- About 90% of the children in the study had two breakfasts a day.
- About 90% of the children in the study had one breakfast a day.
- About 10% of the children in the study had two breakfasts a day.
- About 10% of the children in the study had no breakfast at all.
- What does the underlined word obese mean in Paragraph 3?
- Overweight. B. Strong. C. Tall. D. Hungry.
- According to the researchers, some people don’t eat breakfast because _____.
- they have no time B. they prefer snacks
- they want to keep fit D. they want to eat more at lunch
- What is the best title of this passage?
- Breakfast and School Performance B. Breakfast and Weight Gain
- Breakfast and Life Pleasure D. Breakfast and Snacks
If the sun has enough power to warm and light the whole earth, it must have enough power to do other things, too. Can we use the sun’s plentiful energy to supply electricity, or at least to perform the functions which electricity or other types of power usually perform? The answer is YES.
For example, people have for many years been using the reflected（反射的）heat of the sun to cook. Solar（太阳能的）cookers have been built with several special mirrors reflecting the sun and centering its heat on the cooking part. This equipment can be used just like a gas or electric cooker: it is more expensive to make but it does not need any fuel, and so costs nothing to use. Another possibility of using solar energy is in house heating.
The form of energy we use must is electricity, and every day more is needed. But electricity also has to be made, and to make it, huge quantities of fuel are required — oil, coal, gas and so on.
The question which worries everyone today is: how long will these fuels last? Nobody knows for sure, but most experts think it will soon be difficult to get enough electricity from these sources. It is possible that the sun can make a contribution here, too.
Solar power has already been used to produce powerful heat. In Southern France a solar furnace（锅炉）has been built, where temperatures reach more than 3000℃. This furnace is only used for experiments at present, but could be used to produce steam for a power station.
So it is possible that one day in the near future we will depend on solar furnaces and power stations to provide our electrical needs. Or perhaps each home will be able to use solar power for lighting and heating.
- According to Paragraph 1, the sun can provide electricity because ______.
- it gives us warmth B. it gives us brightness
- it has plenty of power D. it has plenty of gas
- One advantage of a solar cooker is that ______.
- no fuel is needed B. no mirror is needed
- no heat is needed D. no space is needed
- According to Paragraph 4, most experts think that fuels on the earth ______.
- are always available B. are limited
- are expensive D. are always useful
- The underlined sentence in Paragraph 4 means that the sun may provide us with ______.
- enough fuels B. enough steam
- enough oil D. enough electricity
- This passage is mainly about ______.
- the problems of solar energy B. the functions of solar power
- the use of house heating D. the forms of energy
