The search engine giant unveiled Moon in Google Earth as 43 of its Google Earth 5.0 satellite imaging and mapping software to celebrate the 40th 44 of Armstrong and Aldrin’s historic landing on July 20, 1969. Forty years ago, two human beings walked on the moon, 45 today it’s possible for anyone to follow in their footsteps with the service of Moon in Google Earth. This service is giving hundreds of millions of people around the world unprecedented access 46 an interactive 3D presentation of the Apollo missions. Google Earth users can access the new upgrade to explore the moon through panoramic photos and previously 47 NASA video footage shot on the lunar surface. They can also follow along as Aldrin and Apollo 17 astronaut Jack Schmitt offer 48 video tours of the moonscape. Users will also be able to view the latest rover concepts by teams 49 in Google’s X-prize, a US$ 30-million international competition starting in 2007.

51.Spain is a popular tourist destination for many reasons: great art and museums, gorgeous beaches, not to mention world-famous architecture. 51 They’re there, instead, to take part in the world’s largest tomato fight! 52 Freeing the ham is the cue for the delivery of over 100 tons of tomatoes, and then the battle is ready to commence. The streets and the crowd are soon covered with red, sticky tomato pulp. 53 But even in the midst of this anarchy, safety matters. Goggles are strongly recommended for all participants, and tomatoes must be softened by squashing them before being thrown. 54 The origins of the festival are obscure. 55 Of course, history is probably far less important to those involved than the chance to enjoy some messy fun and give a new meaning to the phrase “paint the town red.”

56.<1> American convenience stores are often a direct target of armed robbery. In some areas of the United States, it is not uncommon for clerks to work behind a bulletproof glass window, even during daylight hours. Some convenience stores even restrict access inside at night, requiring customers to go to a walk-up window specifically for such situations to make purchases. The main dangers are that almost all convenience stores have only one person working the night shift, that most of the transactions are in cash, and that in the stores are easily resold goods, such as liquor, lottery tickets, and cigarettes. Most convenience stores have a cash drop slot into a time-delay safe, so clerks may limit the amount of cash on hand. Many have installed security cameras to help prevent robberies and shoplifting.
【題組】56. Which of the following is NOT the reason that American convenience stores become a direct target of armed robbery?
(A) Convenience store customers purchase goods mostly in cash.
(B) In almost all convenience stores, there is only one clerk during the night.
(C) Only very few convenience stores provide bulletproof glass windows for clerks.
(D) Robbers can easily make profits because they can resell many of the goods sold in convenience stores.
57.【題組】57. Which of the following measures is taken to prevent armed robbery in this passage?
(A) Setting silent alarms.
(B) Hiring security guards.
(C) Installing a time-delay safe.
(D) Offering powerful weapons to clerks.
58.<2> Every day, women around the world reach for shampoo, deodorant, and moisturizer. They apply eyeshadow, mascara, blush, and lipstick. Then maybe some nail polish, and finally a little perfume. Doing this every morning gives many women the confidence they need to go out and meet people. Women can hide pimples, scars, and other skin problems. They can change the color of their hair, the shape of their eyebrows, and the length of their eyelashes. They can even give themselves a fake suntan. Actually, it’s not just women who use cosmetics. More and more men are using perfumes like aftershave lotions, colognes, moisturizers, and even make-up. A recent development in modern cosmetics is permanent make-up. Permanent make-up was originally developed to help people with birthmarks on their faces. Now people have permanent make-up so that they don’t have to put on make-up every day. Ann Prince, an artist from Virginia, had her eyeliner, eyeshadow, and lip color done with permanent make-up. She claims it saves time because now she simply needs to put on a little mascara and some blush before she goes out. Permanent make-up is applied to the face in a process similar to tattooing, using a kind of ink. Unlike a tattoo, the ink fades after about five years, but it can easily be applied again if necessary. Full permanent lip color takes about two hours to apply. Permanent eyeliner takes 90 minutes and permanent eyebrow color takes just half an hour. Despite a little pain, the proponents think permanent make-up makes it so much easier to look good.
【題組】58. What can we learn from the first paragraph?
(A) Even today, no man uses make-up.
(B) Some cosmetics can help people look suntanned.
(C) Though cosmetics are quite helpful in beautifying a person, they cannot hide scars.
(D) Mascara and blush are cosmetics that women use, while nail polish and perfume are not.
59.【題組】59. Why do people want permanent make-up?
(A) They would like to put a birthmark on their faces.
(B) They want to look cool, but they are afraid to tattoo their bodies.
(C) They love to make themselves look good, but they can’t afford so many types of cosmetics.
(D) They don’t like to spend a lot of time in front of the mirror every morning before they leave for work.
60.【題組】60. Based on this passage, which of the following statements is NOT true?
(A) Tattoos and permanent make-up are similar because they both need ink.
(B) Permanent make-up lovers think it worthwhile because it makes good looking so much easier.
(C) Once permanent make-up is applied to the face, it will never be removed because it is permanent.
(D) Anne Prince loves permanent make-up because she saves time on making up though she still puts on some cosmetics before going out.
