23.II. Cloze No one denies that the 1.5 billion passengers on flights worldwide every year breathe cleaner air since smoking bans started in 1990. But complaints from passengers and flight attendants of headaches, other health ailments and odors linked to the air on_ 63_. have piled up for years, drawing attention fromCongress and air-quality experts. _ 64_. the concerns, it is anyone's guess how often there's an "air quality event" when the air becomes tainted with dangerous contaminants such as ozone, engine fluids or carbon monoxide. It's also anyone's guess whether cabin air pressure — thin air equivalent to that found on an 8,000-foot mountaintop — is healthful. That air pressure provides about 74% of the oxygen available at sea level. Why is it anyone's guess? Because no one regularly tests the air on passenger planes despite decades of calls for monitoring. The Federal Aviation Administration doesn't plan to start testing until 2006 at the_ 65_. Patience is _66_. thin. Congress, which has been requesting cabin air monitoring since 1989, has asked the General Accounting Office to investigate the FAA's failure to act.

27. People who survive a heart attack often describe it as a wake-up call. But for a 61-year-old executive I met recently,it was more than that. This man was in the midst of a divorce when he was stricken last spring, and he had fallen out of touch with friends and family members. The executive's _67_ , unaware of the strife in his life, counseled him to change his diet, start exercising and quit smoking. He also prescribed drugs to _68_. cholesterol and blood pressure. It was sound advice, but in combing the medical literature, the patient discovered that he needed to _69_. more. Studies suggested that his _70_. of dying within six months would be four times greater if he remained depressed and lonely. So he joined a support group and reordered his priorities, placing relationships at the top of the list instead of the bottom. His health has improved steadily since then, and _71_. has his outlook on life. In fact he now describes his heart attack as the best thing that ever happened to him. "Yes, my arteries are more open," he says. "But even more important, I'm more open."

32.III. Reading Comprehension Roger Currie quit smoking ten years ago. Then his weight ballooned and his blood pressure soared. Along with the weight gain, Currie, a 55-year-old radio announcer, developed a snoring problem, his wife informed him. Worse, he routinely stopped breathing. Tests at a sleep clinic yielded quick diagnosis: sleep apnea. In obstructive sleep apnea, tissue in the throat relaxes during sleep, collapsing—and closing off—the airway. Excess weight can narrow the passage, but you don’t have to be overweight; some people have slight abnormalities that cause the disorder. Most apneacs aren’t aware that they’re reaching consciousness continually during the night, as often as every 30 seconds. The frequent, arousals, necessary to restart breathing, prevent apneacs from getting enough restorative deep sleep. Perhaps as a result, apnea is associated with hypertension, stroke and heart disease. Sleep apnea strikes millions of people, including about 25 per cent of people over 65. For five years, Currie slept wearing a special mask that propelled air into his nasal passages. But after dieting and exercise trimmed 45 kilos from his frame, Currie felt good enough to try going to bed unmasked. He got up the next morning and felt sufficiently rested to try it again. He’s been mask-free ever since. Even better, his longtime hypertension has disappeared.

36.I am always amazed when I hear people saying that sport creates goodwill between the nations, and that if only the common peoples of the world could meet one another at football or cricket, they would have no inclination to meet on the battlefield. Even if one didn't know from concrete examples (the 1936 Olympic Games, for instance) that international sporting contests lead to orgies of hatred, one could deduce it from general principles. Nearly all the sports practiced nowadays are competitive. You play to win, and the game has little meaning unless you do your utmost to win. On the village green, where you pick up sides and no feeling of local patriotism is involved, it is possible to play simply for the fun and exercise: but as soon as the question of prestige arises, as soon as you feel that you and some larger unit will be disgraced if you lose, the most savage combative instincts are aroused. Anyone who has played even in a school football match knows this. At the international level, sport is frankly mimic warfare. But the significant thing is not the behavior of the players but the attitude of the spectators: and, behind the spectators, of the nations who work themselves into furies over these absurd contests, and seriously believe - at any rate for short periods -- that running, jumping and kicking a ball are tests of national virtue.

(A) nurtures friendship between countries.
(B) can only be fun when there is competition.

(D) patriotism and prestige were not such a big issue.

(A) play to show their upbringing.
(B) have their own different attitude
(C) play in a wild and mad way.
(D) ridicule each other for being absurd.
