Ruth Simmons joined Goldman Sachs’s board as an outside director in January 2000: a year later she became president of Brown University. For the rest of the decade she apparently managed both roles without attracting much eroticism. But by the e nd of 2009 Ms. Simmons was under fire for having sat on Goldman’s compensation committee; how could she have let those enormous bonus payouts pass unremarke d? By February the next year Ms. Simmons had left the board. The position was ju st taking up too much time, she said. Outside directors are supposed to serve as helpful, yet less biased, advisers on a fir m’s board. Having made their wealth and their reputations elsewhere, they presuma bly have enough independence to disagree with the chief executive’s proposals. If t he sky, and the share price is falling, outside directors should be able to give advic e based on having weathered their own crises. The researchers from Ohio University used a database hat covered more than 10,00 0 firms and more than 64,000 different directors between 1989 and 20
  04. Then the y simply checked which directors stayed from one proxy statement to the next. The most likely reason for departing a board was age, so the researchers concentrated on those “surprise” disappearances by directors under the age of
  70. They fount t hat after a surprise departure, the probability that the company will subsequently ha ve to restate earnings increased by nearly 20%. The likelihood of being named in a federal class-action lawsuit also increases, and the stock is likely to perform worse. The effect tended to be larger for larger firms. Although a correlation between the m leaving and subsequent bad performance at the firm is suggestive, it does not m ean that such directors are always jumping off a sinking ship. Often they “trade u p.” Leaving riskier, smaller firms for larger and more stable firms. But the researchers believe that outside directors have an easier time of avoiding a blow to their reputations if they leave a firm before bad news breaks, even if a re view of history shows they were on the board at the time any wrongdoing occurred. Firms who want to keep their outside directors through tough times may have to create incentives. Otherwise outside directors will follow the example of Ms. Simmon s, once again very popular on campus.
  21. According to Paragraph 1, Ms. Simmons was criticized for . [A]gaining excessive profits [B]failing to fulfill her duty [C]refusing to make compromises [D]leaving the board in tough times
  22. We learn from Paragraph 2 that outside directors are supposed to be . [A]generous investors [B]unbiased executives [C]share price forecasters [D]independent advisers
沪江英语 www.hjenglish.com

  23. According to the researchers from Ohio University after an outside director’s sur prise departure, the firm is likely to . [A]become more stable [B]report increased earnings [C]do less well in the stock market [D]perform worse in lawsuits
  24. It can be inferred from the last paragraph that outside directors . [A]may stay for the attractive offers from the firm [B]have often had records of wrongdoings in the firm [C]are accustomed to stress-free work in the firm [D]will decline incentives from the firm
  25. The author’s attitude toward the role of outside directors is . [A]permissive [B]positive [C]scornful [D]critical Text 2 Whatever happened to the death of newspaper? A year ago the end seemed near. The recession threatened to remove the advertising and readers that had not alread y fled to the internet. Newspapers like the San Francisco Chronicle were chronicling their own doom. America’s Federal Trade commission launched a round of talks ab out how to save newspapers. Should they become charitable corporations? Should t he state subsidize them ? It will hold another meeting soon. But the discussions no w seem out of date. In much of the world there is the sign of crisis. German and Brazilian papers have shrugged off the recession. Even American newspapers, which inhabit the most trou bled come of the global industry, have not only survived but often returned to profi t. Not the 20% profit margins that were routine a few years ago, but profit all the same. It has not been much fun. Many papers stayed afloat by pushing journalists overbo ard. The American Society of News Editors reckons that 13,500 newsroom jobs hav e gone since 20
  07. Readers are paying more for slimmer products. Some papers ev en had the nerve to refuse delivery to distant suburbs. Yet these desperate measur es have proved the right ones and, sadly for many journalists, they can be pushed further. Newspapers are becoming more balanced businesses, with a healthier mix of revenu es from readers and advertisers. American papers have long been highly unusual in their reliance on ads. Fully 87% of their revenues came from advertising in 2008,
沪江英语 www.hjenglish.com
according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD). In Japan the proportion is 35%. Not surprisingly, Japanese newspapers are much more stable. The whirlwind that swept through newsrooms harmed everybody, but much of the damage has been concentrated in areas where newspaper are least distinctive. Car and film reviewers have gone. So have science and general business reporters. Fore ign bureaus have been savagely cut off. Newspapers are less complete as a result. But completeness is no longer a virtue in the newspaper business.
  26. By saying “Newspapers like … their own doom” (Lines 3-4, Para.
  1), the author indicates that newspaper . [A]neglected the sign of crisis [B]failed to get state subsidies [C]were not charitable corporations [D]were in a desperate situation
  27. Some newspapers refused delivery to distant suburbs probably because . [A]readers threatened to pay less [B]newspapers wanted to reduce costs [C]journalists reported little about these areas [D]subscribers complained about slimmer products
  28. Compared with their American counterparts, Japanese newspapers are much mo re stable because they . [A]have more sources of revenue [B]have more balanced newsrooms [C]are less dependent on advertising [D]are less affected by readership
  29. What can be inferred from the last paragraph about the current newspaper busi ness? [A]Distinctiveness is an essential feature of newspapers. [B]Completeness is to blame for the failure of newspaper. [C]Foreign bureaus play a crucial role in the newspaper business. [D]Readers have lost their interest in car and film reviews.
  30. The most appropriate title for this text would be . [A]American Newspapers: Struggling for Survival [B]American Newspapers: Gone with the Wind [C]American Newspapers: A Thriving Business [D]American Newspapers: A Hopeless Story Text 3

We tend to think of the decades immediately following World War II as a time of prosperity and growth, with soldiers returning home by the millions, going off to col lege on the G. I. Bill and lining up at the marriage bureaus. But when it came to their houses, it was a time of common sense and a belief tha t less could truly be more. During the Depression and the war, Americans had learn ed to live with less, and that restraint, in combination with the postwar confidence i n the future, made small, efficient housing positively stylish. Economic condition was only a stimulus for the trend toward efficient living. The ph rase “less is more” was actually first popularized by a German, the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, who like other people associated with the Bauhaus, a school o f design, emigrated to the United States before World War II and took up posts at American architecture schools. These designers came to exert enormous influence on the course of American architecture, but none more so that Mies. Mies’s signature phrase means that less decoration, properly organized, has more im pact that a lot. Elegance, he believed, did not derive from abundance. Like other m odern architects, he employed metal, glass and laminated wood-materials that we ta ke for granted today buy that in the 1940s symbolized the future. Mies’s sophisticat ed presentation masked the fact that the spaces he designed were small and efficie nt, rather than big and often empty. The apartments in the elegant towers Mies built on Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive, for example, were smaller-two-bedroom units under 1,000 square feet-than those in th eir older neighbors along the city’s Gold Coast. But they were popular because of t heir airy glass walls, the views they afforded and the elegance of the buildings’ det ails and proportions, the architectural equivalent of the abstract art so popular at th e time. The trend toward “less” was not entirely foreign. In the 1930s Frank Lloyd Wright s tarted building more modest and efficient houses-usually around 1,200 square feet-t han the spreading two-story ones he had designed in the 1890s and the early 20th century. The “Case Study Houses” commissioned from talented modern architects by Californi a Arts & Architecture magazine between 1945 and 1962 were yet another homegro wn influence on the “less is more” trend. Aesthetic effect came from the landscape, new materials and forthright detailing. In his Case Study House, Ralph everyday lif e ? few American families acquired helicopters, though most eventually got clothes dryers ? but his belief that self-sufficiency was both desirable and inevitable was wi dely shared.
  31. The postwar American housing style largely reflected the Americans’ . [A]prosperity and growth [B]efficiency and practicality
沪江英语 www.hjenglish.com
[C]restraint and confidence [D]pride and faithfulness
  32. Which of the following can be inferred from Paragraph 3 about Bauhaus? [A]It was founded by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. [B]Its designing concept was affected by World War II. [C]Most American architects used to be associated with it. [D]It had a great influence upon American architecture.
  33. Mies held that elegance of arc
