11.A. It’s been four centuries since the Catholic Church
condemned Galileo Galilei for declaring that the earth
revolved around the sun, and it still can’t admit it was wrong.
In 1992, the conclusions of a special Vatican Commission
made no mention of the role of Church leaders in 11 the
Italian astronomer with heresy. The condemnations of 1616
and 1633, which silenced Galileo and imposed a sort of
house arrest, were summed up by John Paul II as a “tragic
mutual incomprehension.” 12 a critical book was released
this year in Italy—The Galileo Case: From Condemnation to
“Rehabilitation.” A Closed Question?—the Holy See
decided to fire back. In an August interview with an Italian
Catholic weekly, Archbishop Angelo Amato, the No. 2 man
in the Congregation for Doctrine of the Faith, declared
13 was indeed closed. Amato said the real critics of
Galileo were “the philosophers” 14 “the Roman
cardinals … who all wanted to examine the sky through his
famous telescope.” He added that Galileo was provided
15 a servant during house arrest. Give it another century
or so and maybe the church will come to confession.

longer than men—five years longer, 16 . I used to accept
the disparity, assuming it was part of our collective generic

the American Journal of Public Health suggests that men’s
behavior may 18 need to be blamed. According to David
Williams, a senior research scientist at the University of
Michigan’s Institute of Social Research and the main author
of the study, men outrank women in all of the 15 leading
causes of the U.S. death, 19 one: Alzheimer’s. Men’s

You see, when arteries are injured by 23 risk
factors like high blood pressure or cigarettes, cholesterol is
24 like new plaster repairing a wall. But if too much of
the wrong cholesterol 25 , the plaque grows and becomes
inflamed. Blood can clot on this 26 surface and
rapidly close off an artery in just minutes, even if the plaque
was small initially.
A stress test can determine whether enough blood is
passing by a blockage to 27 an exercising heart on the
day of the test. If the artery is 50 per cent closed, the test
will often be clean, giving 28 comfort to people who
are still at 29 for heart attacks. Many people wrongly
believe that these tests 30 health. Like many, Clinton
tolerated atypical symptoms of life-threatening blockages
before the correct diagnosis was finally made.

31.Ⅲ. Reading comprehension: Choose the most appropriate
Unexpectedly, after years of flying solo or in small
groups, I find myself a manager in a large corporation. Not
just that. I am that most unfashionable of creatures, a middle
manager. This takes some getting used to. The big company I
work for shall remain nameless, but it is a software
manufacturer located in a suburb of Seattle (Hint: the Janet
Reno fan club has been disbanded.).
The media these days are awash in managerial
pornography: adulatory profiles of the big-shot chief
executive, allegedly revealing the secrets of his success. The
bookstores offer shelves of advice about how to be a
successful manager. A middle manager with dreams, like so
many others, of becoming an upper-middle manager reads
the articles and scans the books looking for inspiration.
They aren’t much help. Bromides and tautologies are
common: treat people like human begins, not automatons;
cutting costs saves money. Self-contradiction masquerades as
Zenlike philosophical balance: Never lose your temper, but
don’t be afraid to get angry. When they don’t contradict
themselves, these guides often contradict one another. One
chief executive officer (CEO) succeeds because of his
maniacal attention to detail. The next CEO’s secret is setting
broad goals and keeping her eye on the big picture. One CEO
is glorified as a hyperkinetic workaholic. Another is praised
for the wisdom of adopting a measured pace and leaving
plenty of time for long-term reflection.
