However, dogs without owners to care for have a different kind of life. The expression, “to lead a dog’s life”, means a person has an unhappy life.
Some people say we live in a “dog -eat-dog” world. That means many people are competing(竞争 ) for the same things, like good jobs. They say that to be successful, a person has to “work like a dog”. This means they have to work very, very hard. Such hard work can make people “ dog-tired ” . And, the situation would be even worse if he became “sick as a dog”.
Still, people say “every dog has its day”. This means that every person enjoys a successful period (时期 ) during his or her life. To be successful, people often have to learn new skills. Yet, some people say that “you can never teach an old dog new tricks (花招 )”. They believe that older people do not like to learn new things and will not change the way they do things.

The keys to reaching or staying at a healthy weight are regular exercise and good eating habits. Some people think exercise and good habits need lots of effort (努力 ) or planning. But that’s not true. In fact, the best way to work them out into lives is by making small changes.
Here’s the information you need to make these healthy habits just as easy. Teens should get 60 minutes or more of physical (体力的 ) activities a day. As long as you’re getting your body moving, it doesn’t have to mean doing difficult exercise or hitting the gym (去健身房 ) every day.
On days when you have soccer practice or a PE class, you may have no trouble in exercising for an hour or more. But most of us are busy, and 60-mimute-activity every day seems like a lot of time. The good news is that it’s OK to divide it into shorter “exercise breaks” in a day.
Just as you might have a healthy snack to stop yourself getting hungry, exercise snacks can give you enough energy. So get up 15 minutes early and do some morning exercises. Fast walk or jog for 15 minutes at lunch. Do the same things after school-walk or bike home. You will probably reach your 60 minutes. 44. What does this passage mainly talk about?
A . H ow to get good eating habits every day.
B . H ow to get enough exercise easily every day.
C . H ow to make a good plan for study.
D . H ow to keep you busy every day.

A. For an hour. B. For 15 minutes.
B. For half an hour. C. For a day.
46. Which of the following is TURE according to the passage?

B. We should eat less and make ourselves hungry every day.
C. Exercise and good eating habits need lots of effort or planning.
D. Exercise snacks can provide us with enough energy.

There’re millions and millions of pictures about Alaska. But until a person really experiences Alaska, those pictures will not have any real meaning.
My friend and I started our trip to Alaska on an early summer morning. We made the decision to take the sightseeing bus to get there. We left at around seven that morning. Because tourists often like to take the afternoon bus, our bus only had five or six other passengers on the bus with us. The driver told us a lot about the places of interest along the way. When we went past good places, our driver allowed(允许 ) us to sit back in the comfortable seats and enjoy Alaska’s beautiful view. We enjoyed the beauty of Alaskan nature.
When we arrived at Alaska, we went out into the bright sunlight of Alaska. At first we walked along the beach. With the sun shining (照射 ) off the slow moving waves of the sea, the boats slowly move on their everyday tasks.
Then we made our way to a large ship for a day cruise. As we moved about on the ship, we took pictures of animals, such as sea lions, otters (水獭 ), puffins (海鹦 ), eagles (鹰 ), and even a bear. My favorite part of the cruise was seeing the whales(鲸鱼 ). It was an amazing experience to be on the side of the boat with the whale swimming along.

First, be sure you understand the task. Write it in your notebook if you need to, and don’t be afraid to ask questions about it.
