You have waited 45 minutes for the valuable 10 minutes' break. But when the bell for the next class rings, you can't believe how quickly time has passed. If you have this experience, you'll know how time flies when you are having fun and drags(慢慢经过) when you are bored Now scientists have come up with a reason why this happens.
They have found that the brain changes its way to work according to how we direct our attention to a task When we are bored, we pay more attention to how fast time is passing. And this makes our brains think the clock is ticking more slowly.
Recently some researchers who wanted to understand the conditions carried out an experiment. In the experiment, twelve volunteers watched a picture when researchers monitored(监控) their brain activities.
The volunteers were told to first notice how long a picture appeared, then the colour of the picture, and thirdly, study the both. The results showed that the brains were more active when the volunteers paid attention to more subjects.
It is thought that if the brain is busy noticing many aspects (方面)of a task, it has to spread its resources, and pays less attention to the dock. Therefore, time seems to go by quickly. If the brain is not so active, it puts its full energy on the passing of time. As a result, time seems to move slowly.
Next time you feel bored in class, perhaps you should concentrate on(集中注意力于)what the teacher is saying.
32. How did the researchers do the experiment?
A. By inviting the volunteers to have a long class.
B. By asking the volunteers to pay attention to a clock.
C. By monitoring their brain activities while volunteers were watching a picture.
D. By asking the volunteers to play a game.
33. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. We will be full of energy if we're busy.
B. Concentrating on things is a way to make people less bored.
C. Time goes by slowly when the brain is noticing many things at the same time.
D. Time goes by slowly when we concentrate on things.
34. Which is the best title for the passage?
A. The reason for time flying and dragging
B. The importance of planning time
C. The best way to save time
D. The importance of saving time
You love reading, but you've read all your books four times, and are tired of reading the same ones. You're planning to go to the library, but don't know what kind of books to get. With the right knowledge, it's easy to choose a good book!
Answer these questions first. What authors do you like? Research books by the authors you've enjoyed, and you can get more of the same type of books. What are your interests? Type your hobbies into your library catalog search. By doing this, you will find books that you might like. Is there a type of book you would like to try? If there is, search the book and read the summary. This will help you decide if the book is right for you.
Search your house next. Often good books are quietly collecting dust in your own house. Maybe you forget about one, or someone who is living with you has a couple of good books. Also by searching your house, you can find some books that you can read, and they won't even cost you any money.
Then, ask someone to recommend a good book. You can ask your older brother or sister, your mom, your dad, your best friend, or even your English teacher. Local bookstores often have wonderful recommendations. And when they get to know you, it's even better! You should ask people who like the same type of books, so that you can get books that match your need.
Join a book club, please. Being a book club member is often a way to experience new books with other members. Joining a book club or setting up a book club helps you know who else likes the same books as you, and you can read books that others have read and discuss them.
Finally, read the first part of each book. Of course, if you have many books, this can be time-consuming. Reading the first part of a book can help you know what books and types of books that you like, and you won't have a hard time looking for books again. [

My father used to work in the city and seldom stayed at home. But he would come back help to harvest rice every year.
One autumn, he promised to help our neighbor, who lost his arms in a traffic accident in 1999, to harvest his rice. After Father harvested our town, his little rice picker broke. What’s worse, he had to return to work the next day because his partner was ill in hospital. It meant that father wouldn’t be back in a few days. It now seemed impossible to help out the neighbor.
Father told us that he wouldn’t let the neighbor’s rice rot( 糜烂) in the field. He decided to harvest it by hand without a machine. “If tonight’s weather is clear, I think I can do it.” added my father. In fact, he was rather tired after a day’s harvest work.
After dinner, Father had a short rest and made his way to the field. A full moon was glowing (发光) in the sky and the weather was cold but clear. He spent the whole night keeping his word.
I would never forget the image(画面)：Father was cutting rice in the light of the harvest moon. Behind him, row after row of rice stocks(秸秆) stood at attention, showing respect for a man who kept his word.
