41.▲ 閱讀下文,回答第41 − 45題 For those who think of straws as nothing but animal feed, materials for the roof, natural fertilizers or occasional medical herbs, I would suggest that they take a trip to Snugburys. Snugburys, an ice cream maker in the U.K., has had a plan to construct a sculpture every year in their farm field to celebrate the coming of summer. This year, they have a GIANT polar bear — a statue which has 3 tons of straws inside. The steel-skeleton-straw-stuffed replica of the animal from the arctic region is attracting interest from tourists, visitors or ice cream buyers while keeping guard at this ice cream destination beside A51 Chester Road. The animal is approximately four times as big as a real adult male polar bear: standing 38 feet tall and weighing in at 9 tons. The sculpture will stay there for about half a year. “Ex-straw-dinary!” uttered one of my friends. The concept started in 1998 with a huge Millennium Dome sculpture and, since then, on the list of the works of art are replicas of the Big Ben Clock, a windmill, the Lovell telescope, a rocket, an angel from the West, a dinosaur as well as last year’s meerkat. Speaking about this year’s design, Mr. Sadler, the business owner, responded with a smile: “There’s no real reason why we chose a polar bear but we think that they’re cool and ice cream is cool so I guess that’s a good enough explanation!” A certain part of all sales from the shop’s “Polar Bear Cones” will be given away to The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust which provides holidays for the kids in need: ill at a terminal stage, disabled, disadvantaged and the like.

46.▲ 閱讀下文,回答第46 − 50題 Michael Hart, founder of Project Gutenberg, invented eBooks in 1971 and continued to inspire the creation of eBooks and related technologies today. He announced that the greatest value created by computers would not be computing, but the storage, retrieval and searching of what was stored in our libraries. There are three categories of the Project Gutenberg Library: Light Literature — such as Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass, A Christmas Carol, Peter Pan, Aesop’s Fables, etc; Heavy Literature — such as the Bible or other religious documents, Shakespeare, Moby Dick, Paradise Lost, Heart of Darkness, etc; References — such as Roget’s Thesaurus, almanacs, dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc. The Light Literature Collection is designed to get people to the computer in the first place, whether a preschooler or a great-grandparent. We ( Project Gutenberg team ) love to hear about kids or grandparents taking each other to an Etext to Peter Pan when they come back from watching HOOK at the movies, or when they read Alice in Wonderland after seeing it on TV. Nearly every Star Trek movie has quoted current Project Gutenberg Etext releases. This was a primary concern when we chose the books for our libraries. ¯
