Nearly a quarter of people surveyed said they had "zero" close friends with whom to discuss personal matters. More than 50 percent named two or fewer confidants, the researchers said. “This is a big social change, and it indicates something that's not good for our society,” said Duke University Professor Lynn Smith-Lovin. Smith-Lovin's group used data from a national survey of 1,500 American adults that has been ongoing since 19
  72. She said it indicated people had a surprising drop in the number of close friends since 19
  85. At that time, Americans most commonly said they had three close friends whom they had known for a long time, saw often, and with whom they shared a number of interests. They were almost as likely to name four or five friends, and the relationships often sprang from their neighborhoods or communities. Ties to a close network of friends create a social safely net that is good for society. Research has also linked social support and civic participation to a longer life, Smith-Lovin said. The data also show the social isolation trend mirrors other class divides: Non-whites Americans and the highly educated. That means that in daily life, personal emergencies and national disasters such as Hurricane Katrina, those with the lowest resources also have the lowest personal friends to call for advice and assistance. "It's one thing to know someone and exchange e-mails with them. It's another thing to say, ‘Will you give me a ride out of town with all of my possessions and pets? And can I stay with you for a couple or three months?’” Smith-Lovin said. "Worrying about social isolation is not a matter of remembering a warm past. Real things are strongly connected with that," added Harvard University Public Policy Professor Robert Putnam. He suggested flexible work schedules would allow Americans to tend both personal and professional lives.
  51. One reason for the social isolation of Americans is . A. frequent relocation B. frequent traveling C. living alone D. working flexible hours
  52. The percentage of people with more than two close friends is about. A. 25% B. 50% C. 60% D. 75%
  53. According to the passage, close social ties among people are. A. a must for social progress B. beneficial for the family C. a source of happiness D. good for people's health

  54. It is implied that tend to live a more socially isolated life. A. people in the higher social ladder B. people in the lower social ladder C. people with a longer life span D. people with a shorter life span
  55. According to Robert Putnam, . A. it is useless to worrying about social isolation B. social isolation is not necessarily bad for us C. it is time to do something about social isolation D. social isolation does not mean the end of society
  56. The passage is focused on . A. the new trend in American social life B. the urban problems in modem society C. the ways to build a strong social network D. the reasons for close interpersonal relationships Passage Two For years, France proudly resisted establishing domestic smoking bans. It held out longer than Britain, Spain and Italy, but on January 2, 2008, it finally forbid cigarettes in bars, cafes, restaurants and clubs. This was not a decision taken lightly. Magazines ran photo-spreads reminding us that French people look seriously cool with a cigar in their mouth. There were illustrations of Charles de Gaulle, the French president during World War II, Brigitte Bardot the 1950s famous fashionist, and the famous French philosopher and writer, Jean-Paul Sartre. Even the present President Nicolas Sarkozy, extremely image-conscious, posed for Paris Match magazine with a fat cigar. But now, France's traditional “cafe-clope” (morning coffee and cigarette) is only possible if people can bear the freezing temperatures outside. In the latter part of the 20th century, the health risks of second-bend tobacco smoke were made public. Then, in 1975, a modern wave of smoking bans started in Minnesota, the US. Since then, many countries and regions have joined in the movement. Among them, the US has been a pioneer, with California being the first in the world to ban indoor smoking at all public places, including bars and restaurants. Thus some French people call the non-smoking law issued on January 2 "a touch too American". However, studies before the ban showed that 70 percent of French people supported the enforcement. The public's positive response means that the smoking ban will be just one more US trend accepted by French society. Even among strong smokers, no one wants to risk a fine. French barman Jean-Michel, dressed in a leather waistcoat and a cowboy-style shoelace tie, complained harshly about the ban. Was be anticipating a smokers' revolt? "No," he said calmly. "People will respect it. I'll do what I did at school. I'll smoke in the toilets.” According to the non-smoking law, individuals who smoke in bars, cafes, restaurants or clubs can be fined up to 450 euros. The owners of these places can be fined up to 750 euros if they fail to stop customers from smoking.
  57. The law of banning smoking in public places was not made easily because . A. France proudly resists establishing new laws B. French people like their images with a cigar in their mouth C. French people have had such a strong habit since World War II D. smoking has become fashionable for Frenchmen lately
  58. According to the passage, French President Nicolas Sarkozy . A. pays a great deal of attention to his own public image B. has been a heavy smoker in public eyes C. strongly opposes the law of banning smoking D. is a model in the hearts o
