The Pacific island nation of Nauru used to be a beautiful place. Now it is an ecological disaster area. Nauru‟s heartbreaking story could have one good consequence — other countries might learn from its mistakes.
For thousands of years, Polynesian people lived the remote island of Nauru, far from western civilization. The first European to arrive was John Fearn in 1798. He was the British captain of the Hunter, a whaling ship. He called the island Pleasant Island.
However, because it was very remote, Nauru had little communication with Europeans at first. The whaling ships and other traders began to visit, bringing guns and alcohol. These elements destroyed the social balance of the twelve family groups on the island. A ten-year civil war started, which reduced the population from 1,400 to 900.
Nauru‟s real troubles began in 1899 when a British mining company discovered phosphate (磷酸盐)on the island. In fact, it found that the island of Nauru was nearly all phosphate, which a very important fertilizer for farming. The company began mining the phosphate.
A phosphate mine is not a hole in the ground; it is a strip mine. When a company strip-mines, it removes the top layer of soil. Then it takes away the material it wants. Strip mining totally destroys the land. Gradually, the lovely island of Nauru started to look like the moon.
In 1968, Nauru became one of the richest countries in the world. Every year the government received millions and millions of dollars for its phosphate.
Unfortunately, the leaders invested the money unwisely and lost millions of dollars. In
addition, they used millions more dollars for personal expenses. Soon people realized that they
had a terrible problem — their phosphate was running out. Ninety percent of their island was
destroyed and they had nothing.
(B)2000, Nauru was financially ruined. Experts say that it would
take approximately $433,600,000 and more than 20 years to repair the island. This will probably
never happen.

【題組】56. What might be the author‟s purpose in writing the text?
(A)To seek help for Nauru‟s problems.
(B)To give a warning to other countries
(C)To show the importance of money
(D)To tell a heartbreaking story of a war.

One of the greatest contributions to the first Oxford English Dictionary was also one of its
most unusual. In 1879, Oxford University in England asked Prof. James Murray to serve as editor
for what was to be the most ambitious dictionary in the history of the English language. It would
include every English word possible and would give not only the definition but also the history of
the word and quotations (引文)showing how it was used.
This was a huge task. So Murrary had to find volunteers from Britain, the United States, and
the British colonies to search every newspaper, magazine, and book ever written in English.
Hundreds of volunteers responded, including William Chester Minor. Dr. Minor was an American
Surgeon who had served in the Civil War and was now living in England. He gave his address as
“Broadmoor, Crowthorne, Berkshire,”” 50 miles from Oxford.
Minor joined the army of volunteers sending words and quotations to Murray. Over the next
years, he became one of the staff‟s most valued contributors.
But he was also a mystery. In spite of many invitations, he would always decline to visit
Oxford. So in 1897, Murray finally decided to travel to Crowthorne himself. When he arrived, he
found Minor locked in a book-lined cell at the Broadmoor Asylum for the Criminally insane.
Murray and Minor became friends, sharing their love of words. Minor continued contributing
to the dictionary, sending in more than 10,000 submissions in 20 years. Murray continued to visit
Minor regularly, sometimes taking walks with him around the asylum grounds.
In 1910, Minor left Broadmoor for an asylum in his native America. Murray was at the port
to wave goodbye to his remarkable friend.
Minor died in 1920, seven years before the first edition of the Oxford English Dictionary was
completed. The 12 volumes defined 414,825 words, and thousands of them were contributions
from a very scholarly and devoted asylum patient.

San Francisco has its cable cars. Seattle has its Space Needle. And, Longview has its squirrel
bridge. The bridge, which has attracted international attention, is now a local landmark.
The Nutty Narrows Bridge was built in 1963 by a local builder, Amos Peters, to give squirrels
a way to cross the busy road without getting flattened by passing cars.
The original bridge was built over Olympia Way on the west edge of the library grounds.
Before the bridge was built, squirrels had to avoid traffic to and from the Park Plaza office
building where office staff put out a nutty feast for the squirrels. Many times, Peters and others
who worked in and near Park Plaza witnessed squirrels being run over.
One day Peters found a dead squirrel with a nut still in its mouth, and that day‟s coffee break
discussion turned into squirrel safety. The group of businessmen cooked up the squirrel bridge
idea and formed a committee to ask the blessing of the City Council(市政会).The Council
approved, and Councilwoman Bess LaRiviere named the bridge “Nutty Narrows.”
After architects designed the bridge, Amos Peters and Bill Hutch started Construction, They
built the 60-foot bridge from aluminum and lengths of fire hose(消防水带). It cost 1,000.
It didn‟t take long before reports of squirrels using the bridge started. Squirrels were even
seen guiding their young and teaching them the ropes. The story was picked up by the media, and
Nutty Narrows became know in newspapers all over the world.
In 1983, after 20 years of use, Peters took down the worn-out bridge. Repairs were made and
crosspieces were replaced. The faded sign was repainted and in July 1983, hundreds of animal
lovers attended the completion ceremony of the new bridge.
Peters died in 1984, and a ten-foot wooden squirrel sculpture was placed near the bridge in
memory of its builder and his devotion to the project.

For those who are tired doing the laundry, Samsung has found an answer: a washing machinethat can tell you when your laundry is done via a smartphone app(application).
Strange though it may seem — “my wife already does that” was a common response among
attendees viewing the device when it was introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES)
this week — Samsung is just one of many appliance makers racing to install (安装) a large
number of internet-connected features in machines in an effort to make them “smart”.
Last year, it was a refrigerator that tweeted. This year, it‟s Wi-Fi-enabled laundry machines
and fridges that can tell you when your groceries are going bad.
The washers and dryers, available starting in the spring, connect to any smartphone through a
downloadable application. The phone can then be used as a remote control, so the machines can be
turned on and off while their owners is at work or on the bus.
Samsung says it‟s not just something new — the app connection actually has some practical
uses.
“If you started to dry clothes in the morning and forgot to take them out, you can go to your
phone and restart your dryer for the time when come home, so your clothes are refreshed and
ready to go,” said spokesperson Amy Schmidt.
The company also says that with electricity rate(电价)varying depending on the time of day,
more control over when the machines are used can help save money.
Perhaps, but what they will probably really accomplish is what all good technologies do
—enable laziness. Rather than getting up to check on whether the laundry is done, users will
instead monitor it on their phones while watching TV.

【題組】72.What can be inferred from the common response of the attendees at the CES?
(A)The machine will be a big success.
(B)their wives like doing the laundry.
(C)The machine is unrelated to their life.
(D)This kind of technology is familiar to them.
53.【題組】73. What can we learn about the new laundry machines?
(A)They can tell you when your clothes need washing
(B)They can be controlled with a smartphone
(C)They are difficult to operate
(D)They are sold at a low price
54.【題組】74. We can conclude form Samsung‟s statements that ___________.
(A)the app connection makes life easier
(B)it is better to dry clothes in the morning
(C)smartphone can shorten the drying time
(D)we should refresh clothes back at home
55.【題組】75. What is the main idea of the last paragraph?
(A)The laundry should be frequently checked
(B)Lazy people like using such machines
(C)Good technologies also cause problems
(D)Television may help do the laundry.
