Huang Hua, 36, has been working at the Yangshan Deep Water Port for 13 years. But for the first twelve years, he worked as a driver, operating machines in sky-high cranes (吊车). Now, his work location has moved to a control center, monitoring the cranes from afar.
“At a traditional port, I would work with a handle all day, repeating the same motion 12 hours a day, four days a week. I used to have lots of neck problems. Now the task is less physically challenging, but much more complex,” says Huang, who is now a crane teleoperator.
Now, Huang’s daily work is to closely monitor a dozen computer screens, collect data on the operation status of each cargo crane, and deal with emergencies and malfunctions (故障).
Manual workers like Huang are no longer needed at the terminal. Bridge cranes, auto-guided vehicles and rail-mounted gantry cranes (轨行龙门吊) are now taking over the job. While the labor cost is down 70 percent, the handling efficiency has increased by 50 percent.
The Vice General Manager of the Shangdong Container Terminal Branch, Luo Yunjie told CGTN that all the automated handling equipment is designed and manufactured in China. Once the fourth phase (期) enters full operation, it will be able to handle 6.3 million TEUs. This will further strengthen Shanghai Port’s status as the busiest in the world.
Shanghai has the ambition of becoming a global shipping center by 2020. Phase IV of the Yangshan Port marks an important step in reaching that goal. In the near future, the Shanghai Port not only aims to gather more value-added shipping resources and offer more various services, but also to play an even bigger role in the country’s Belt and Road initiative.
21. What is the difference between Huang’s present job and that of the past?
A. He works fewer days a week.
B. He has fewer neck problems.
C. He can operate cranes in a control center far away.
D. His task is less physically challenging, but much more complex
22. Why aren’t manual workers like Huang needed at the terminal any longer?
A. Because the labor cost is down 70 percent.
B. Because they have more important work to do.
C. Because they aren’t strong enough to work there.
D. Because all the jobs are done by bridge cranes, auto-guided vehicles and rail-mounted gantry cranes.
23. Which is the most suitable to use to describe present Yangshan Deep Water Port?
A. The busiest. B. The best.
C. The largest. D. The most advanced.
“City Cycling USA: Los Angeles,” a pocket-sized tour guide to seeing Los Angeles on two wheels, is seemingly for visitors; for locals, its series of bike-friendly paths and itineraries (行程) are a road-map to becoming tourists in their own city again.
“City Cycling” explores five neighborhoods in the Westside and Eastside and generally north of the 10 and south of the 101. Itineraries fit the period of a day, beginning with spots for coffee, walking along museums and shops, and finishing off with recommendations of where to buy a well-deserved drink. Published by Thames and Hudson in association with London cycling brand Rapha Racing, the guidebook is among the first U.S. sections — alongside New York, Chicago and San Francisco — in a series launched in 2013 with biking tours of eight European cities.
Greatest hits such as the Bradbury Building and Echo Park Lake are included in the neighborhood tours, with plenty of fashionable places for where to eat — Eggslut, Pine & Crane and Gjusta. The guide is a reminder of how crowdedly packed each enclave (飞地) of L.A. is with unusual destinations, the large number of places to explore within a few square mile radius (半径), easily done once we step out of the car.
Los Angeles’ famously pleasant weather makes it an ideal city for exploring by bike; neighborhoods have different styles. While the car still plays an important role, cycling culture, like CicLAvia, already has full support, and is prepared to grow with the implementation (实施) of Mobility Plan 2035, which aims to make the city more bike friendly. “City Cycling USA: Los Angeles” is a start.
24. Who is City Cycling USA: Los Angeles really intended for?
A. Visitors on bikes. B. Locals on bikes.
C. Tourist on bikes D. Bicyclists
25. Where does each itinerary begin and end?
A. Where there is a café.
B. Where drink can be bought easily.
C. Where it is convenient for tourists on bikes.
D. Where there are museums and shops.
26. What are Eggslut, Pine & Crane and Gjusta used for?

Roger Federer, who recently became the oldest man to hold the No. 1 ranking in men’s tennis at the age 36, will bring a 12-match winning streak (连胜) to the BNP Paribas Open, which starts this week at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
Federer, a five-time winner of the hard-court event and a 20-time Grand Slam singles champion, on Tuesday was seeded No. 1 in a field that has been given up by injuries to several excellent players. Among those missing are world No. 2 Rafael Nadal (hip injury), Stan Wawrinka (knee), who lost to Federer in the 2017 final, David Goffin (eye) and Andy Murray (hip surgery).
Federer, who has spent 305 weeks of his career at the top the Assn of Tennis Professional world rankings, must reach the semifinals (半决赛) at Indian Wells to keep his No. 1 status. If he exits sooner than that, Nadal would regain the top spot. Federer has a first-round bye (轮空) and a seemingly easy projected route to the quarterfinals, where he likely would face No. 5 seed Dominic Thiem of Austria.
Five-time Indian Wells champion Novak Djokovic, who had a small medical intervention (干预) on his troublesome right elbow earlier this year, was seeded 10th in the tournament. Djokovic has played only four matches this year because of his elbow problems and hasn’t played a tournament since he lost to Hyeon Chung of South Korea in the round of 16 at the Australian Open in January.
Maria Sharapova of Russia will face Naomi Osaka of Japan on Wednesday with their match scheduled for not before 5:00 p.m.
On Thursday, Serena Williams will play Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan and Victoria Azarenka of Belarus will play Heather Watson of the United Kingdom during the evening session (7 p.m. start).

29. Who is most likely to be the seed next to Federer among the players who can play in the BNP Paribas Open?
A. Rafael Nadal. B. Dominic Thiem.
C. Novak Djokovic. D. Maria Sharapova.

A. He has elbow problems.
B. He has played fewest matches.
C. He lost to Hyeon Chung.
D. He was seeded 10th in the tournament.
31. Why does the author use most words to talk about Federer?

Chinese researchers say they have come up with a simple way to find out a person’s biological age —how much the body has aged physically – through a urine (尿) test.
Their findings will help researchers conduct numbers of ageing studies and even predict a person’s risk of age-related diseases, according to a paper published in the journal Frontiers in Ageing Neuroscience.
Another paper by researchers at the Beijing Hospital and the West China Hospital in Chengdu, Sichuan province, said on Tuesday that people aged at different rates due to changes in their genetic make-up and their environment.
Chronological age – which is based on one’s birth date —was an inaccurate measure of biological age so a more accurate method was needed, the team said.
Ageing is driven by the lifelong gradual accumulation of a broad variety of molecular (分子) faults in the body’s cells. The team said they had identified a matter —8-oxoGsn — that indicated increases in oxidative (氧化性) damage in urine as people’s bodies aged.
Cai Jianping, a co-author at the Beijing Hospital, said: “As we age, we suffer increasing oxidative damage and so the levels of oxidative matters increase in our body.” The team tested the levels of 8-oxoGsn in urine samples from 1,228 Chinese people aged two to 90 and concluded themarkerhelped accurately determine the stage of biological ageing in adults.
They had previously found that 8-oxoGsn levels also increased with age in the urine of animals such as mice.
The team has also developed a rapid analysis technique called ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography, which can process up to 10 urine samples an hour, according to the study.
32. Scientifically speaking, by what does a doctor judge the stage of a person getting old?
A. His condition. B. His biological age.
C. His psychology. D. His chronological age.
33. What are the outer factors the speed of one’s ageing physically depend on?
A. One’s birth date.
B. The increases in oxidative damage in urine.
C. The changes in their genetic make-up and their environment.
D. The accumulation of various molecular faults in the body’s cells.
34. Which can take the place of the underlined word “marker” in the sixth paragraph?
B. Molecular faults.
C. Oxidative damage.
D. Stage of biological ageing in adults.
35. What is the passage about?
A. Why people are ageing.
B. How to delay people’s ageing physically.
C. What determines the stage of people’s ageing physically.
D. A rapid method with which to judge how much people are aging physically.

We both 42 in Mobile, and entered Murphy High School in 1953. I sat by two girls. The three of us talked so 43 during class that the teacher split us up. She moved me next to a 44 named Ann.

In our junior year, we were still in the 47 class. When in 48 , I asked Ann to 49 me what I was doing wrong. Without a word, she let me know she was 50 to help me. So I asked another classmate.

In our lives, many of us will find 61 （we） caring for an elderly parent. This is never easy; it can take great efforts 62 (emotional) and physically, and the financial challenges can sometimes seem 63 our ability.
Often one of the 64 (hard) things is striking a balance between your parent’s desire to feel independent and your control of their life, with the need to ensure they are safe and their health needs 65 (attend) to.
Sometimes this can create tensions (紧张) and arguments, only 66 (add) to the stress of an already difficult situation. It is important here to make them feel they are being listened to, and 67 they know you only have their best interests at heart.
It’s the same with financial issues. To cover the costs of their parent’s care, many people will consider the choices such as selling the family home.

Is it all right students carry smart phones all the times? The opinions about that varies from person to person. Those for that think it is convenience for them to contact with others, especially it is necessary in emergency.
Those like that, however, think students are not supposed to. In their opinion, some students can’t resist a temptation to play games and watch something improper for them at improper time, wasting their precious time they should spend studying and taking sports. Besides, to playing games may cost them too many. As far as I’m concerning, students should value their studies, and safety more than other things. As for relaxation, we would better do what is beneficial for both mind and body.
