Recently, more than 2,000 high school teachers have been asked about the effect of the Internet on their students. Teachers say the Internet has had a good influence（影響）and a not-so-good influence on this generation.
Three quarters of the teachers say the Internet and search tools have had a great effect on their students’ research habits and skills.But 87 percent agree that this young generation don’t know about hard work and can’t stay attentive（注意力集中的）for long. And 64 percent say the Internet does more to distract（使分心）students than to help them in their studies.Many students think “doing research” just means doing a quick search on Google.
According to the teachers, one problem is that students trust too much of the information on the Internet. These students have not developed skills to judge the quality of the information. It’s something that really has to be taught and paid attention to. It’s like everything else.In a world where things can happen quickly, you really need to have a way to step back, think and make judgment about the information you have. And teachers can do a lot to teach that.
Another problem is that being able to quickly find information keeps the students from working hard. They become dependent on search tools and do not make enough use of printed books.Many teachers are also afraid that the Internet makes it easy for students to copy work done by others.

Ron was an engineer. He planned a change and tried the new job of teaching kids how to swim. Ron’s easy manner soon made him a full time employee at the swim school.
Now, the 40 hours he works a week takes in weekends, early mornings and late afternoons. He earns around 25% less than he did in engineering. But, at 49, he says he has never been happier. “I’ve had a drop in pay, but I’ve cut back on spending, too. I seldom drive to work so don’t have to pay as much for petrol（汽油）. I don’t drink as much. I go walking in my lunch break and I’ve lost 20 kilos.I love going to work.The whole family is a lot happier.
When one of his brothers called, offering to help him find “a real job”, he answered, “I don’t care. I know what I’m doing is good.”
He admits it was fearful making such a big change when there was the mortgage（分期付款）to pay and kids to clothe and feed, but in the end he feels it is a simple choice. “If you’re in a job you don’t like, get out. Money’s not everything. If you don’t like it, change-find something you’re going to be happy with.”

A world like no other--perhaps this is the best way to describe the world of the rainforest. No rainforest is the same-yet most rainforests can be found in the small land area 22. 5 degrees north and 22. 5 degrees south of the Equator(赤道). You can find rainforests in South America and Indonesia. Other rainforests exist further from the Equator, in Thailand and Sri Lanka.
Rainforests have a great role to play in supporting the world. They are home to a rich variety of plants, birds and animals. Can you believe that 480 varieties of trees may be found in just one hectare (公頃) of rainforest? These forests have around 50% of all the plants, birds and animals on Earth.
Rainforests have their own perfect way for living. The tall trees make a huge umbrella of branches and leaves which protect themselves, smaller plants, and the forest animals from heavy rain,dry heat from the sun and strong winds. Rainforest trees grow in such a way that their leaves and branches, although close together, never actually touch those of another tree. Scientists think this is a way to prevent the spread of any tree diseases and make life more difficult for leaf-eating insects (昆蟲). To live in the forest, animals must climb, jump, or fly across the branches and trees.The ground floor of the forest is not all leaves and bushes, like in films, but is actually fairly clear. It is where leaves become food for the trees and other forest life.
Rainforests around the world are disappearing at a high speed. A few thousand years ago, rainforests covered as much as 12% of the land surface on Earth, but today this has fallen to less than 5.3%. We hope that the world governments work together with scientists to use their power and knowledge to keep the rainforests for our existence.

All but the tiniest of roads have to have names so they can be recognized on a map, and so people can ask directions to them. Americans name a lot of bridges, too.
Very often these names carry a clear geographical reference--the Pennsylvania Turnpike, for example. Or, like the George Washington Bridge,roads and bridges are named for famous historical figures or powerful officers.
We make a big deal out of naming things,as when someone decided to name an airport after a U.S.judge. So now we have the Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Many, if not most,of our college buildings are named for wealthy people who gave a lot of money to the schools. And our sports centers took this idea a step further.Companies paid a whole lot of money for what’s called the “naming rights” to U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago, for example, and Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
Now the governor（州長）of Virginia, Bob McDonnell,wants to sell naming rights to roads and bridges in the state.He says not just companies, but also wealthy people, would help the Virginia transportation budget（預算）by paying to have their names-or perhaps those of loved ones--placed on roads and bridges, and thus on maps as well.
People hold different views, however. Supporters say Americans are used to having things sponsored（贊助）. Others disagree, considering the idea as the next step in the “companies of America.” They wonder how far such an idea might spread, and where it would end: at the Burger King Pacific Ocean, perhaps.

D.To increase companies’ sales.
50.What can we learn from the last paragraph?（）
A.People have different ideas towards naming things.
B.Americans have sponsored naming a lot.
C.Everything is named by an American company.
D.Pacific Ocean will be renamed.
