Drugs have become a political obsession(困扰) this election year. The House recently passed a bill that would impose a federal death penalty for drug-related murder. The House bill also calls for widespread mandatory drug testing and would permit the use of illegally gathered evidence in criminal trials. The Senate(参议院) is considering ways to bring the House bill to a quick vote, without going through the normally lengthy committee process.
Every politician is eager, it seems, to cast a tough antidrug vote before the election in November. It’s as if politicians feel they have to come up with some new and severe measure that hasn’t been tried before, in the hopes it will make the drug problem disappear. The death penalty for drug pushers or those who commit drug-related murders seems to be the favorite of conservatives this year. Now, a handful of liberals have come up with a radical approach at the other extreme: decriminalize drug use in the hopes that it will take the profit out of drug sales.
There aren’t any easy answers to the drug problem in America. And election years certainly aren’t conducive(有益于) to discussions of the hard truth of drug use. Drug dealers push their wares because there is a market for them in this country. Legalizing drugs won’t affect that market and, arguably, might increase it by removing the penalties.
Nancy Reagan was strongly criticized when she proposed a program to “just say ‘no’ to drugs.” But is there really any other answer? Americans are going to have to face up to some hard questions about ourselves and our values if we’re really going to eliminate drugs. Most of us, unfortunately, would rather talk tough or redefine the problem.
31.Which proposal was included in the House bill on drugs?
A.to punish drug-related murderers by death
B.to prohibit the use of drugs in any situation
C.to make mandatory drug testing illegal
D.to refuse to use illegally gathered evidence in criminal trials
32.What is the Senate trying to do?
A.fight the House bill
B.put forward another proposal
C.speed up the voting process
D.establish a committee before the vote
33.What are politicians eager to do, according to the author?
A.change their constituents’(选民)minds about drugs
B.delay a decision on the drug problem until November
C.find a way to make the drug problem disappear
D.limit the drug problem to a certain group of people
34.According to the author, what will happen to the drug market if we legalize drugs?
A.The hard truth about drugs will finally be faced.
B.Drug dealers won’t be able to sell drugs so easily.
C.Pushers may make more money.
D.It would benefit those who take drugs.
35.How do most Americans deal with the drug problem?
A.They generally support the “just say no”drug policy.
B.They would not touch drugs.
C.They really try to face the drug problem.
D.They only talk about it.
Men seem to have always taken an interest in meteorites(陨石),but not until the early nineteenth century were these objects considered worth preserving for scientific study.
In the beginning people believed that because meteorites fell from the heavens, they were either gods themselves or messengers from the gods. Thus the more civilized of early men carefully kept the meteorites, covering them with costly linens and printing them with oil. In many instances, the people built special temples in which the meteorites were to be worshiped. Meteorite worship was common long ago in the Mediterranean area, and in Africa, India, Japan, and Mexico, such worship still persists in some regions.
Although many people held meteorites in reverence(尊敬),particularly if they were seen to fall, other practical-minded individuals made good use of the durable and easily-worked alloy provided by nature in the nickel-iron meteorites. They frequently used this metal to make tools, and often pots and other utensils. Throughout history, meteoritic iron has been used in the manufacture of special swords, daggers, and knives for members of royalty. Attila and other early conquerors of Europe boasted of “swords from heaven.” As late as the end of the nineteenth century ,several swords were made from a Japanese iron meteorite at the command of a member of the Japanese court.

jobs meet modern pollution problems
To get rid of the world of the pollution―pollution caused not just by cars, but by all 61 industrial life―many people believe we must make some fundamental 62 in the way many of us live. Americans may, for example, have to 63 the number of privately owned 64 and depend more on public mass transit systems. Certainly the expensive use of new transit systems could cut down on traffic jam and air 65 . But these changes do not come 66 . Sometimes they conflict with other urgent 67. For example, if a factory closes down because it cannot 68 government pollution standards, a large number of workers suddenly find themselves without 69. Questioning the quality of the air they breathe becomes less 70 than worrying about the next paycheck.
Wealth achieved through dishonest means does not bring happiness. Lottery winnings do not bring happiness. Wealth 71 by parents does not bring happiness. In fact, money alone is almost 72 If you have both self-esteem and money, however, you are well on the 73 to happiness. What is missing in 74 self-esteem and money is productive work and a real contribution 75 the happiness of others. The secret to happiness 76 in the contribution towards the happiness of others. You can fool others but you can never 77 yourself. If you obtain wealth through luck or dishonest 78 , you will know you did not earn it. If you have taken advantage or hurt 79 to earn your wealth, you will not be 80. You will not like yourself. You will not feel you are capable.
