Restaurants in the USA
So many pizza chains compete for the attention of tourists in South Beach, but ask a Miami Beach local where to get the best pizza and they’ll tell you about Steve’s. This is New
York–style pizza, handmade with care and good ingredients. New branches of Steve’s are opening elsewhere in Miami, all in non-tourist areas.
Opening hours: 11am-3am
This place is 20 miles east of the city, but local folks would probably drive 200 miles to eat here. The food is good, and the scenery is even better. Come early and wander around the grounds of Indian Cliffs Ranch, where you’ll see everything from rabbits to buffalo ( 水牛),
then catch the sunset either before or after your meal. Opening hours: 5pm-10pm
Absolute Baking & Cafe

Opening hours: 7am-2pm
Everybody’s favorite for fresh fish (some drive in from LA), Walt’s packs them in on weekends. You can’t make reservations for dinner (though they’re accepted for lunch), but it’s worth the wait for the tree fire–grilled seafood and steaks in the many-windowed ground floor or upstairs in captain’s chairs.

One day I went to a store to get some needed items for my family.
I gathered up my goodies and headed for the checkout counter, only to be blocked in the narrow aisle（通道） by a young man who appeared to be about sixteen years old. I wasn’t in
a hurry, so I patiently waited for the boy to realize that I was there. It was obvious now, he was mentally challenged and a little shocked as he turned and saw me standing so close to him, waiting to squeeze by. I said, “Hey Buddy, what’s your name?”
“My name is Denny and I’m shopping with my Mommy,” he responded proudly.
“Wow,” I said, “that’s a cool name; I wish my name was Denny, but my name is Steve.
How old are you Denny?”
“How old am I now, Mommy?” he asked his mother as she slowly came over from the next aisle. “You’re fifteen years old, Denny”. Then he headed toward the toy section.
Denny’s mom thanked me for taking the time to talk with her son. She told me that most people wouldn’t even look at him, much less talk to him.
I told her that it was my pleasure and that there are plenty of red, yellow, and pink roses in God’s Garden; however, “Blue Roses” are very rare and should be appreciated for their beauty and distinctiveness.
You see, Denny is a Blue Rose and if someone doesn’t stop and smell that rose with their heart and touch that rose with their kindness, then they’ve missed a blessing from God. So, the next time you see a BLUE ROSE, don’t turn your head and walk off. Take the time to smile and say Hello.
24. The best title of the passage would be .
A. A boy different from others B. Kindness in the world
C. Blue roses in God’s garden D. Unforgettable experience in the store

Imagine having an idea, drawing it on paper, bringing it to a store and seeing it turned into an object. This is now possible with the help of 3D printers. Such machines were once used just by universities and big companies, but now, stores with 3D printing services are appearing around the United States.
Bryan Jaycox and his wife opened The Build Shop LLC in Los Angeles two years ago. The Jaycoxs offer 3D printing classes and services for anyone who is interested.
“I think 3D printing is going to be huge. It’s going to have a huge influence on society as a whole.” says KiChong Tran, one of the students in a recent class. He plans to open a 3D printing business in Cambodia (柬埔寨).
3D printing services are coming into American people’s life. The UPS Store is a nationwide retailer (零售商) that provides copying and other services. The UPS Store recently
put 3D printers in three of its independently-owned stores. Burke Jones owns one of the stores in San Diego.
“The demand has been amazing. There has been a lot of interest from people. It’s been much more than I would have imagined.” The UPS Store plans to add 3D printers in three more stores.
At The UPS store, the cost of the object depends on the amount of materials used. The store also charges up to $95 an hour for design and labor services.
Mr. Jaycox thinks that within five years, 3D printing technology could become more user- friendly. But KiChong Tran says even today’s technology can make a difference in a developing country like Cambodia.
“With 3D printing you can give them tools, so they are responsible more for their own development and they learn skills beyond just like learning English and becoming a tour guide or something like that. You can actually create things that give value to the world.”
He says it’s not just Cambodia but anywhere where there is a 3D printer, it can turn a good idea into reality.
28. The purpose of the passage is to .
A. attract consumers to buy 3D printers
B. explain the importance of 3D printing
C. introduce a new technique—3D printing
D. describe the rapid development of technology
29. The Build Shop LLC is a store .
A. selling sewing machines
B. known for tools like 3D printers
C. promoting 3D printers
D. offering 3D printing classes and services
30. In the UPS Store, the cost of printing a 3D object depends on .
A. the amount of materials
B. the labor services it needs
C. the materials and labor services
D. the size of the object
31. The attitude of KiChong Tran towards the development of 3D printing is .
A. objective B. positive C. uncertain D. critical
We like people who look like us, because they tend to have personalities similar to our own. And, a new study suggests, the longer we are with someone, the more similarities in appearance grow.
Researchers set out to study why couples often tend to look like one another. They asked 11 male and 11 female participants to judge the age, attractiveness and personality of 160 real-life married couples. Photographs of husbands and wives were viewed separately, so the participants didn't know who was married to whom.
The test participants rated men and women who were actual couples as looking alike and having similar personalities. Also, the longer the couples had been together, the greater the similarities. The researchers guess that the sharing of experiences might affect how couples look.
The idea that there is a connection between appearance and personality might seem strange at first, but there could be biological reasons for a link, said study member Tony Little from the University of Liverpool in England.
“The face displays our emotions and over time, emotional expressions may become written in the face,” Little told Live Science. For example, someone who smiles a lot may develop lines and muscles that are suggestive of someone who is happy.
Other studies have shown that partners who are genetically similar to each other tend to have happier marriages.
The new study indicates that people have different features when using facial appearance to make decisions about someone’s personality, and that the particular cues（暗示） focused on
change from face to face. Vital to the decision, however, are eyes and smiles.
“Smiles are important social cues that may tell us whether or not someone is friendly, and eyes are also a traditional focus of attention,” Little said.
Overall face shape can be important too. For example, the combination of large chins and strong brow ridges（脊）can create an impression of disagreeableness and being unwilling to
cooperate, Little said.
32. We can conclude from the new study that old lovers look alike because .
A. they love each deeply for a long time
B. their similar experiences might affect their appearance
C. they learn from each other in their daily life
D. they are closely connected with each other biologically
33. According to the passage, .
A. the researchers judged the age and personality of 11 males and 11 females
B. the appearance of someone who smiles a lot may suggest his or her happiness
C. appearance and personality are always connected
D. a person’s personality can only be judged through eyes
34. The underlined word “vital” can be replaced by .
A. most important B. very effective C. quite obvious D. just contrary
35. The passage mainly tells us that
A. sharing of experience leads to similar appearance
B. it’s safe to judge one’s personality from smiles and eyes
C. couples often have a lot in common
D. personality is largely based on facial expressions

The London underground is the biggest urban transport system in the world, with 12 lines, 275 stations and a total of more than 400 kilometers of track. 36.
To use the underground system successfully, note the following five golden rules:
◆ The 12 underground lines are not numbered, as they sometimes are in other cities.
37. They are always referred to by name: eg, take the Piccadilly Line and change at Earls Court.
◆ Make sure that you catch a train that is heading in the direction you intend to travel!
Some but not all platforms have signs indicating that the trains are "northbound" or "southbound" (or east / west).
◆You must have an appropriate ticket for every journey. Tickets can be obtained from an
automatic machine or from a ticket office. However, it is increasingly the case that ticket offices are closed outside peak traveling times. 38. Although the larger ticket machines indicate the price to a particular station, smaller ones simply have the price of the ticket.
◆ Use your ticket to get through the automatic barrier gates. You feed it into the gate
through a slot(狭长孔), the machine reads it and then feeds it out through a second slot. The barrier gate will open for you when you remove your ticket. 39.
◆Never travel without a ticket! 40.
Enjoy the underground--it's the fastest way to get round the city!
A. Punishment is severe.
B. So be prepared to get a ticket from a machine.
C. Each train has its destination station on the front.
D. Try to find out before you travel how much the ticket costs.
E. Every year, just under one billion journeys are made on the system.
F. Although they are all different colors on the map, they are not referred to by their colors.
G. You will need to use it a second time to get through similar gates at the end of your journey.
