On February 3,1931, the peace of New Zealand's Hawkes Bay region was destroyed when the area was hit by the worst earthquake in New Zealand's history. At 10:46 am on that summer's day, the quake hit with a magnitude of 7.9 on the Richter scale(里氏震级).The centre of the quake lied some 15 to 20 kilometers north of the two main centers, Napier and Hastings. The quake lasted for two and a half minutes. Many people died in the earthquake.

A fire broke out immediately after the quake. The fire started in a chemist's shop and spread quickly. Then the Fire Department in Napier came to help, but they were at a loss to control the fire as a result of losing their water supply. However, the water supply in Hastings, was still usable, allowing them to fight back against the fire.

Right in front of the Minneapolis Central Library, a row of green bikes sits parked in a special stand. Each bike is designed with the logo “Nice Ride”—the name of the city’s bike-share program.

Nice Ride bikes are a lot like the library books that people come

here to borrow. To rent a bike, you simply use your membership card at a Nice Ride bike station. Members can rent one of 1,200 bikes from 138 stations throughout Minnesota’s largest city. People use the Nice Ride bikes to go to work, to go out on business, or just to enjoy the city’s many bike paths.

The rise of bike-share programs like Nice Ride is encouraging more people than ever to choose biking over driving. Increasingly climbing gas prices and concerns about the environment have also gotten people to dust off their bike helmets, pump air into flat tires, and hit the road.

Why ride? Not only is biking good exercise but changing from a car to a bike also cuts down the amount of pollution in the air. Carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas leading to climate change, is one of the many polluting substances that come out of a car’s tail pipe.

Bike-share systems are found around the world in cities like London, Paris, Barcelona, and Melbourne, Australia. They are also common in China’s cities, Wuhan, for example, has the largest program with 70,000 bikes.

To make roads friendlier to non-motorists, the U.S. Department of Transportation has spent more than a billion dollars on cycling and pedestrian projects in recent years. The money went toward building thousands of miles of on-street bike lanes and pedestrian-only passages called greenways.

28. Which of the following can people do with the bikes? A. Enjoy bikeways. C. Compete in a race.

B. Make a living.

D. Rent them out to others.

The government doesn’t have to support them. 31. What is the author’s purpose in writing this text? A. To ask for advice for Nice Ride. B. To compare Nice Ride with libraries. C. To raise money for bike-share programs. D. To introduce the bike system in public places.

Why do Americans struggle with watching their weight, while the French, who consume(消耗) rich food, continue to stay thin? Now a research by Cornell University suggests how life style and decisions about eating may affect weight. Researchers concluded that the French tend to stop eating when they feel full. However, Americans tend to stop when their plate is empty or their favorite TV show is over. According to Dr. Joseph Mercola, a health expert, the French see eating as an important part of their life style. They enjoy food and therefore spend a fairly long time at the table, while Americans see eating as something to be squeezed between the other daily activities. Mercola believes Americans lose the ability to sense when they are actually full. So they keep eating long after the French would have stopped. In addition, he points out that Americans drive to huge supermarkets to buy canned and frozen foods for the week. The French, instead, tend to shop daily, walking to

small shops and farmers’ markets where they have a choice of fresh fruits, vegetables, and eggs as well as high-quality meats for each meal.

After a visit to the United States, Mireille Guiliano, author of French Women Don’t Get Fat, decided to write about the importance of knowing when to stop rather than suggesting how to avoid food. Today she continues to stay slim and rarely goes to the gym.

In spite of all these differences, evidence shows that recent life style changes may be affecting French eating habits. Today the rate of obesity — or extreme overweight — among adults is only 6%. However, as American fast food gains acceptance and the young reject older traditions, the obesity rate among French children has reached 17% — and is growing.

32. what way are the French different from Americans according to Dr. Joseph Mercola? A.They go shopping at supermarkets more frequently. B.They squeeze eating between the other daily activities. C.They regard eating as a key part of their lifestyles. D.They usually eat too much canned and frozen food.

33. This text is mainly about the relationship between _________. A.Americans and the French

B.life style and obesity

C.children and adults D.fast food and overweight 34. The text is mainly developed __________. A. by comparison C. by order

B. by space D. by process

35. Where does this text probably come from?

A.A TV interview B.A food advertisement C.A health report D.A book review
