Passage oneWhat do you use to get around town? A cat? A bike? Your feet? Perhaps you
should try a Segway!The Segway is perfect for short journey.It is an electric vehicle that
consists of a platform between two wheels, with a pole that connects the
platform to the handlebars.To ride it, you step up onto the platform, and
control the Segway by moving your body.Lean forwards to go faster, and backwards
to slow down.On older models, direction is controlled by a twist grip(扭转把手)on the left
handlebar.This varies the speeds between the two motors, a decrease in the seed
of the left wheel would turn the Segway to the left.With never models you simply
lean to the left or right.Meanwhile, a gyroscope(陀螺仪)detects your movements and
prevents the machine form falling over.The Segway has a maximum speed of 19 km
per hour and a range of about 38 km.After that, you need to plug it in and
recharge the battery.Segways are used for a variety of purposes.People with mobility problems
can now enjoy walks in the country with their friends and family.Some golfers
use them as an alternative to the golf cart.And dog owners now have an easier
way to take the dog to the park.A few police forces use Segways, too.They allow
officers to move quickly whilst maintaining contact with the public.They are also becoming a common sight on airport.However, the most popular
use is in tourism, particularly for city tours.Visit any major tourist city in
summer, sit outside a cafe for a while and there is a good chance you will see a
group of tourists passing on Segways.

the day that they had enough money in hand to make a down payment on the
house.But the real estate (房地产) agent informed them that she had received
another offer for the house.Although the other offer was slightly less than that

Passage ThreeMost of the guests who come on our trips have never been to Egypt before.We
want to make everyone comfortable and at ease, but we do always get the same
question in advance of a trip.So here I will give you some travel tips.What
should I wear?If you are lucky enough to visit Egypt between November and February, pack
a sweater.You’ll need it --the desert gets chilly at night..During the day, the
temperature will be agreeable and comfortable.Any other time, pack as if you are
going to phoenix or Vegas in August.For the ladies bathing suits are normal if
there’s a pool where you’re going, but leave the string bikini at home --it is a
Muslim country, after all.Last, if you’re planning on visiting any mosques or
certain parts of upper Egypt, ladies will need to plan on bringing something
that comes at least to the elbows, and no shorts for men or women in those
areas.What special things do I need to pack?One of my favorite things in the world to bring to Egypt is an Evian
Mister, a sprayer with a fine mist of Evian water.You may be able to find it in
your local drug store.Spray a little on yourface or head, and your body temperature will feel like it’s dropped 10 to
15 degrees.Other items include your camera, sun block and extra batteries.How do
I communicate with home?Internet cafes are plentiful everywhere, especially in Cairo, Luxor, and
Alexandria.If you have international calling on your phone, you should be able
to use it----AT&T and sprint both work internationally for sure, but may
sure you have the international coverage.A satellite phone is best if you are
certain to need coverage in the middle of the country, like while sailing up the
Nile, but for most people these days a cell phone is fine.What medical
preparation do I need?In a word: none! The one thing you may come down with in Egypt is politely
called “Pharoah’s Revenge” The thing that knocks out Pharoah’s Revenge is a
regionally produced medicine ,and is available at every drugstore for $ 1 a
box.DON’T drink local water, DO drink bottled water, avoid the skins of fresh
vegetables, and you will be fine.

communication?A.A cell phone is enough for most people.B.AT&T and sprint offer free service in Egypt.C.A satellite phone does not work in Mid-Egypt.D.Internet cafes are only available in big cities.参考答案:A

Passage FiveWhatever you do, don’t challenge a chimpanzee named Ayumu to a number
memory game. In 2007, Ayumu became famous for his lightning speed at a game that
goes like this: A player views a computer screen where the numbers 1 through 9
appear briefly at once and then turn to white squares.The player then taps the
squares where the numbers had been, in order from 1 to 9.People can do it.But no
human competitor has ever completed the game faster or more accurately than
Ayumu the chimp.For almost five years Ayumu remains undefeated.Psychologist Nicholas Humphrey of Darwin College at Cambridge University in
England now thinks he knows the secret behind the chimp’s ability.Humphrey
suspects Ayumu’s brain may have a condition that allows the chimp to see numbers
as colors.This would mean that Ayumu may see a color glow after the numbers
disappears.Then, instead of remembering the numbers, he remembers a sequence of
colors, each associated with a number.The condition that Humphrey believes Ayumu may have is called
synesthesia.Humans with synesthesia may associate numbers and letters with
colors.For example, a person may see the number “5” as the color blue.Until now,
scientists had assumed only humans could have synesthesia.Humphrey found the inspiration for his idea at a 2011 scientific
conference.There, he heard a presentation about Ayumu’s memory abilities and
another talk about synesthesia.He then put the two ideas together.Not everyone is convinced that Humphrey is correct.Primatologist Tetsuro
Matsuzawa of the Primate Research Institute at Kyoto University in Japan has
spent decades studying the amazing memories of chimpanzees, including Ayumu.He
maintains that chimps simply have faster memory recall than people.


52.What is Ayumu famous for?A.His gift in playing computers.B.His talent in calculating numbers.C.His skill in tapping the numbered squares.D.His amazing performance in memory game.参考答案:D

53.Which of the following is true of Nicholas Humphrey?A.He thinks Ayumu has an amazing memory.B.He believes that Ayumu sees the colors of numbers.C.He was inspired by Primatologist Tetsuro Matsuzawa.D.He delivered a speech on synesthesia at the 2011conference.参考答案:B

54.Where does Humphrey get the inspiration for his idea?A.From an experimentB.From a conferenceC.From a research on chimpanzeesD.From the color blue参考答案:B

55.How does Tetsuro Matsuzawa explain Ayumu’s performance in the game?A.Ayumu uses synesthesia.B.Ayumu is cleverer than most chimps.C.Chimps recall things faster than people.D.Chimps are good at dealing with number.参考答案:C
