Elephants can be trained to carry logs with their trunks, and have been used in the forestry industry in Asia for many years.

There are two kinds of elephants: the African elephant and the Indian elephant. African elephants can be identified by the larger ears. The African elephant grows up to 10 feet tall and weighs as much as 12,000 pounds.

(D) David Beckham As a Manchester United player, David Beckham is used to winning. He is one of the most famous Englishmen in the World today. Of course, it is impossible to have an unbiased opinion of this young man or the team that he plays for. If you are a Man Utd fan, you love him. If you aren’t a fan of this team, then your opinion of Mr. Beckham may be quite different. In fact, in recent times, his treatment by fans of other teams has been extremely unsavoury, especially when he has been playing for England. Some of the worst words have not even been aimed at Beckham but at his wife and young child, which is a bad thing. It has been hard for the football leaders to control such unruly behaviour. How can you discipline people for their comments when so many people are guilty? But under the

pressure of being shouted at by so many people, he has always remained calm. Of course, a lot of the bad things about Beckham are due to his own actions. He is a very fashionable young man, but some of the clothes he has worn have been simply amazing. Why a person in his position would choose to wear a skirt in public is truly unbelievable! Furthermore, to wear such things in unseasonable times as mid-winter seems even crazier! His behavior on the football pitch has also been unpredictable at times. Sometimes he is brilliant; sometimes he does crazy things. Some of the most famous footballing incidents involving Beckham are not his spectacular goals but his ungainly tackles. The most famous occasion was in France ’98, when a clumsy tackle led to him being sent off. However, he is not guilty of such things, and if he can stop such behavior he could even become England'’ next captain.

  4. Beckham was sent off in France’98, because of . A. his fame B. his tackle C. his words D. his braveness (E) 原始森林) How much ancient forest (原始森林 do you have in your home? 原始森林 Are you sleeping on illegal treestrees from the Congo? Is your kitchen table made from wood, which has started social conflict in a distant African country? Are you literally flushing an ancient forest down the toilet? Check out our interactive Forest House to see exactly where your household goods come from and the forest-friendly alternatives. The Earth's ancient forests are unique, centuries old regions that support countless plant and animal species as well as native communities. But they are rapidly vanishing(消失) as the demand for wood and paper grows. In fact, only 20 percent of the world's ancient forests remain - a very scary statistic. Our comfy houses are contributing to the problem - in Europe, 50 percent of the tropical wood used in our furniture, doors and window frames is logged illegally, often from irresponsibly managed ancient forests. This wood often fuels corruption and social conflict and destroys the homes of endangered or undiscovered species. Our interactive Forest House is a room-by-room (and garden) guide to wood in household products, featuring everything from flowerboxes to guitars. You can also learn exactly why wood is "good" or "bad" and print out our one-pager to stick on the fridge and check before you make that trip to IKEA. The Forest House also lets you search by product, so if you're on the lookout for a new hat stand or toilet seat, you'll know you should give teak a miss. In general, the safest wood is always Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. This means that the wood is from a sustainable (可持续的) managed forest and that the rights of indigenous peoples are respected during the logging process. Some homeware stores such as IKEA and Home Depot (in the US) have made commitments to only source FSC certified wood for their products.

(G) 阅读短文,根据短文内容完成句子。 "Dreams may be more important than sleep. We all need to dream," some scientists say. Dreams take up about one quarter of our sleeping time. People have several dreams each night. Dreams are like short films. They are usually in color. Some dreams are like old films. They come to us over and over again. That may be because the dreamer is worrying about something. Dreaming may be a way of trying to find an answer. Some people get new ideas about their work from dreams. They may have been thinking about their work all day. These thoughts can carry over into dreams. Sometimes we wake up with a good feeling from a dream. But often we can't remember the dream. Dreams can disappear (消失) quickly from memory. Too much dreaming can be harmful (有害的). The more we sleep, the longer we dream. The mind is hard at work when we dream. That is why we may have a long sleep and still wake up tired.

Mr and Mrs Chen went to Europe for a holiday. They visited Copenhagen, the capital (首都)of Denmark, and stayed there for three days. While they were in Copenhagen, they went to a famous park called the Tivoli. Their children bought huge ice creams and enjoyed themselves in the park. Mary Chen bought an unusual postcard. There is a picture on the card. In the picture a policeman is stopping the traffic. Why is the policeman stopping the traffic? There is not as much traffic in Copenhagen as in Singapore. Some of the streets are closed to vehicles (机动车). They are called "Walking Streets" because people can walk along them safely. Mary wrote the address of her cousin on the back of the postcard. Then she wrote: Dear Sue, We arrived at Copenhagen last night. Daddy took us to the Tivoli Park this afternoon. I bought a chocolate ice-cream but it was so big that I couldn't eat it all! Compared with Singapore, Copenhagen is just as clean but it is not as noisy and busy. Some of the shopkeepers speak English here, and I have seen four Chinese restaurants already. No more space now.
