In this age of cell phones, text messages and computer keyboards, one Scottish school has returned to basics. It’ s teaching I children the ignored art of writing with a fountain pen. There is no clicking of keyboards in most classrooms at the Mary Erskine and Stewart ’s Melville Junior School，although there is a full range of facilities(设施）for computer lessons and technology isn ' t being ignored. The school' s headmaster believes the old -fashioned pens have helped strengthen the academic performance and self-respect of his 1，200 pupils.
"The pens improve the quality of work because they force the children to take care, and better work improves self-respect" , headmaster Bryan Lewis said. “ Proper handwriting is as relevant today as it ever has been. “ Students as young as 7 have been instructed to give up their ballpoint pens and begin to deal with its more artful predecessor. By the time they reach grade five, at age 9，they are expected to write mainly with fountain pens. Lewis said the school’s 7-and 8 -year-olds use fountain pens for 80-90 percent of their work, returning to pencils for such subjects as math. “I don’ t see fountain pens as old -fashioned or out of date. Modern fountain pens are beautiful to use. It’ s not like in the old days of broken metal points and dirtying writing paper，” Lewis said. ‘We have a particular writing style and we have developed it very carefully and found a way that allows left-and right-handed people to write without dirtying paper. ”
Some people argue that handwriting is becoming less important because of the growing use of cell phone text messaging and typing on computers, but the school disagrees. ‘We talk of the paperless office and the paperless world, but this is not true, ” Lewis said. “You still need to have proper handwriting skills. ”
59. The Scottish school in the passage _____.

A. children should be required to use fountain pens when they are five
B. handwriting skills are more important than typing skills nowadays
C. using fountain pens may slow down students ’ speed of writing
D. fountain pens have helped to build up students' self-respect
62. Which is the best title for this passage?
A. Handwriting Not Useless Now

Since the Second World War，there has been an obvious trend，especially among the growing group of college students，toward early marriage. Many youths begin dating in the first stage of adolescence, "go steady" through high school, and marry before their formal education has been completed. In some quarters, there is much shaking of graying heads over the unacceptable ways of youth. However, emotional (情感的）maturity does not grow with age； it does not arrive automatically at twenty -one or twenty-five. Some achieve it surprisingly early, while others never do, even in three-score years and ten.
Many students are marrying as an escape, not only from an unsatisfying home life, but also from their own personal problems of loneliness. However, any marriage 'entered into as an escape cannot prove entirely successful. The sad fact is that marriage seldom solves one' s problems ； more often，it merely worsens them. What ’ s more，it is doubtful whether the home is able to carry all that the young are seeking； they might abandon one idol(幻像）only to have another. Young people correctly understand that their parents are wrong in believing that success is the most important in life，but they themselves are wrong in believing that they have found the true cen ter of life' s meaning. Their expectations of marriage are basically unrealistic and therefore can not be met. They want too much, and tragic disillusionment(幻想破灭）is often likely to follow.
Shall we, then, join the chorus of those against early marriages? One cannot generalize： all early marriages are bad and all later ones are good. Satisfactory marriages are determined not by how old one is, but by the emotional maturity of the partners. Therefore, each case must be judged on its own benefits. If the early marriage is not an escape, if it is entered into with relatively few false expectations，and if it is economically workable，why not? Good marriages can be made from sixteen to sixty, and so can bad ones.
63. The underlined phrase ” shaking of graying heads， refers to______.
A. the anger of parents
B. the disapproval of elderly people
C. the improper behaviors of the young
D. the emotional expectations of young lovers
64. The author thinks the idea of marriage as an escape is______.
A. acceptable B. controversial C. immature D. unreasonable
65. The author argues that______.
A. young people can benefit little from early marriage marriages
B. elderly people are wrong about early marriages
C. early marriages are not always unsuccessful
D. early marriages should not be encouraged
66. What’ s the main idea of the passage?
A. Young people，s failure in marriage results from disillusionment.
B. Young people shouldn' t have many expectations for marriage.
C. Successful marriages depend on emotional maturity.[来源:学*科*网Z*X*X*K]
D. Home is the place where you get rid of loneliness.
New security camera can “see” through clothes
New technology that can “ see ” through clothing and detect what ’ s underneath can now be used to scan crowds, making it a potentially effective tool to prevent terrorist attacks in public places.
The Thru Vision T5000 camera picks up Terahertz rays ，or T-rays, which are naturally sent out by all objects and can pass through clothes or even walls. The camera can then detect metallic and nonmetallic objects hidden under clothing on still or moving subjects without showing any body detail.
While similar technology is seen at airports around the world, the T5000 is designed to be used in large, open areas. With a range of 25 meters, the T5000 can screen people in public places, thus avoiding bottle-necks at border crossing or security checkpoints. It also means people can be screened without knowing it.
The technology develops from British astronomers ’ work in studying dying stars. Astronomers use T-ray cameras to see through dust and clouds in space. The company sees uses for its camera at oth er sites where political or business activities take place.
For privacy concerns，Thru Vision Chief Executive Clive Beattie said the image produced by the camera did not show detailed parts of the body. ” It's almost a shining light bulb(灯泡）.“ Beattie said. "You don' t see the detail that people might be concerned about. “ In London' s busy Piccadilly Circus—whic h is already filled with closed -circuit surveillance (监视）cameras— reaction to the new techn ology was mixed. Some said the camera was going too far and violating privacy，but others said they are willing to put safety before privacy concerns. “ There ’ s surveillance everywhere anyway, “ said one commuter. “I don' t think it’ s much of a difference. I don' t care that they can see through me because they can see me anyway.“
Some experts said the privacy violation of the camera was not worth the benefit. “ What we should consider is how much we want to lose our privacy in order to obtain a sort of national security，” said David Murakami Wood，director of the Surveillance Studies network，which deals with surveillance and privacy problems. “ In most cases this isn' t real security—it ’ s a sense of safety that has very little real effect. ”
67. What can we learn about T5000?
A. It can detect metallic and nonmetallic objects underneath.
B. It can see through clothing or walls by sending out T-rays.
C. It was first used to observe stars by astronomers.
D. It is widely used at airports around the world.
68. What is the most probable purpose of the new invention?
A. To improve people ’ s life standard. B. For scientific research.
C. For commercial benefits. D. For safety reasons.
69. Which is most probably the opinion of people on using the new camera?
A. Some agree to its use as it is new technology to protect privacy.
B. Some agree to its use because safety is the most important.
C. Some don' t agree to its use because it makes no difference.
D. Some people don' t care because they know little about it.
70. What' s the main idea of the last paragraph?
A. Safety is more important than privacy.
B. T5000 is more beneficial than harmful.
C. T5000 does not really provide security.
D. It's not worth giving up privacy for safety.
As is known to all, many things can be measured in terms of data. Sometimes data can indeed tell the truth. With the help of data we can easily know the price of a can of Coke in the supermarket or the result of a football match. 71______ What is more important, data seem to be fairer than words or statements. If the data are true, we don' t have to worry about being cheated. Nowadays, as lies exist in the world, data are expected to tell the truth. Therefore, many of us would rather believe data.
On the other hand', if we judge things only by data from the so -c alled specific research， aren't we a little too narrow-minded? Many people often treat the so -called specific data unwisely just to make sure that they are making the right decisions. 72 ______For example，how can you tell that somebody isn't a good student just because he or she doesn’t get high marks in the final examination?
73______ For example，the degree of your feeling happy in your life，the depth of love between you and your friends, and the faith you have in your country. We can only feel them in our hearts but can never express them in data.
There is no doubt that analyzing the exact data is important to assessment of an actual event. But data should be dealt with wisely. We often get wrong data which mislead us. 74______Remember, data have no feeling but we humans have. Data do not mean much to people if we do not have the abilities to analyze the data with the knowledge and confidence to judge whether they are true or false. 75______
Data are data after all. Life is much more colorful than the pale data. So give the cold data a warm heart and we' 11 find that the world is far more wonderful than the pale data can describe.
A. We should try our best to be wise thinkers.
B. Data can make our life easier and more comfortable.
C. But sometimes we may find that data aren't everything.
D. Sometimes our hearts and mind are more sensitive than data.
E. Now and then the so-called specific data puzzle us very much.
F. The exact data should come from assessment of an actual event.
G. There are many things in our life which cannot be measured by data.
How are things going?
