2 经济类 When Michael North bought a house in Edina three years ago, the housing market was so competitive. North made a full-price1 the day the house was put up for sale. Many other buyers unfortunately,had to offer a much highter price than the sellera asked because there were too many other buyers2to buy the houses. Taday Michael is wondering where all the 1 buyers went. He’s trying to sell the $350,000 house,but arfter the prcie was4 for four times and four months on said North.. He is now buying another house for $50,000 less than the 5price that the seller set. As North has found out, now it seems to be a buyer’s market. With mortagage6rates still near all-time lows, the housing market continues to help the state’s economy. Yet the number of new and existing house has climbed7higher than in recent years, allowing buyers to take their time and be choosier. According to a study of the housing market, 14 percent more 8 agreements were signed in March than a year earlier. But the 9 time from the day the house was put on the market till it was sold was almost 65days. It was a time much longer than 10 years.

She has 2 her major four times and is forced to hold down two part-time jobs in order to pay her tuition. She suffers from sleeping and eating disorders and has no friend. Sometimes she burst out crying for no 4 reason. What is happening to millions of college students each year. As a result, roughly one-quarter of the student population at any tme will suffer from5 of depression. Half of them will experience depression intense enough to call for6help. But many of them7the idea because they don’t want people to think there is something wrong with them. There are two reasons today’s college students are suffering more than in earlier generatons. First is a weakening family support
  8. Today, with high divorce rate, the traditional family is not always availble for support. Another problem is 9pressure. In the last decade tuition cost rose about sixty-six percent at public colleges and ninty percent at private schools. 10,most students must work at least part-time.

It is highly conta- gious, difficult to 1 and in many cases impossible to cure. It is not computer experts or programming 2 who are likely to be affected, but rather the electronic data banks themselves. Computer programmes are 3 by a computer "virus" that can paralyze entire computer networks once it has been smuggled into the system. 4, the viruses were quite harmless. Amateur computer enthusiasts smuggled them into big electronic systems, where they showed up as small messayes or games. Such spectacular cases of computer espionage have shown that the big data banks are efficient, but also5e. Many experts complain that computer safety has been 6 for too long. By threatening to place a computer virus into the heart of the electronic data system, a large company could be put under 7pressure. The damage by computer viruses is already
  8. The insidious thing about computer viruses is that if they are well programmed they will spread throughout the entire system unnoticed. Bit by bit they infect the programmes that they have 9 to and then one day they jump into action all at once. And there seems to be hardly any counter-measures. The chance of finding a computer virus in an electronic system without 10 know-how and technical programmes' assistance is practically zero.
