Dogs are man’s best friends---they are very good for children’s health. Researchers found that family pets helped to protect babies against breathing problems and infections (感染).

A team from Kuopio University Hospital in Finland studied 397 babies born at their hospital between September 2012 and May 2015 for their first year. They found that babies who lived with a dog or a cat spent fewer weeks with ear infections, coughs or runny noses. They were also less likely to need antibiotics (抗生素) than babies in homes without a pet.

Study author, Dr. Eija Bergroth, said dogs brought dirt and bacteria (细菌) into the home, which helped children’s immune system (免疫系统) to be strong. This improved their defenses against bacteria.

As part of the study, parents filled out weekly diaries starting when the children were nine weeks old, recording information on babies’ health as well as their contact with cats and dogs. They recorded if they had fever, ear infections, coughs or running noses. They also put down whether they needed antibiotics.

Based on those diaries, the researchers found that about a third of the children spent most of their first year with a pet dog and 24 percent in a home with a cat. And children with no dog contact at home were healthy for 65 percent of the time, compared to between 72 and 76 percent for those who did have a pet.

The researchers also found that contact with dogs, more than cats, was tied to fewer weeks of sickness for babies.

However, the researchers said they couldn’t rule out the possibility that people who own dogs are less likely to get sick for another reason, not due to any protection offered by pets.

1.The researchers studied each child’s life ____.

A. for a year

B. for three years

C. for four years

D. all through childhood

2.How are dogs able to benefit children?

A. By fighting bacteria.

B. By stopping them from going out.

C. By strengthening their immune system.

D. By producing the antibiotics they need.

3.What do the underlined words, “rule out”, in the last paragraph probably mean?

A. Determine.    B. Separate.

C. Control.    D. Ignore.

4.We can learn from the text that ___.

A. dogs are very friendly towards people.

B. dogs are better for babies’ health than cats.

C. dogs have the most benefits for man.

D. dogs are free from antibiotics.

 


Karen Bystedt was born in Israel, but lived in London and California as a child. In 1982, as a photography (摄影) student at New York University, she was photographing male models for a book when she came across an ad featuring Andy Warhol, a very famous artist. She thought it would be really great to put him in her book.

So she called Andy Warhol at his studio in Union Square and asked if she could photograph him.

Two weeks later, Bystedt took a rented Hasselblad camera and lights to Warhol’s famed “Factory” on 14th street. She ended up taking 36 pictures, and published two in her book, Not Just Another Pretty Face, published in 1983. Warhol came to its launch (发行) party---and that was the last time she saw him.

A few years later, she packed the portraits in a box and moved to Los Angeles. But after she’d gotten settled, she couldn’t find them. She couldn’t remember whether she had given the photos away or just left them in some forgotten storage unit. Either way, she thought they were lost forever.

In 2011, Bystedt became determined to find the missing films(底片). She spent two weeks going through two old garages, where she had put a bunch of belongings decades before. In a cardboard box, she found ten of the original films, covered in dust. She and a friend spent four months digitizing and cleaning the images up, pixel(像素) by pixel.

Bystedt was not content to merely publish the unseen photos. She invited contemporary artists to paint over and around her Warhol pictures, breathing new life into her old work. So she began reaching out to artists, seeing if they would be interested in putting their own stamp on the pictures.

The responses was overwhelming. Bystedt’s new exhibit, “The Lost Warhols,” opened on May 1, 2018 at 178 Sixth Avenue in Soho, New York, included 66 different interpretations of her portraits from 34 artists.

1.After photographing Andy Warhol, Bystedt     _____.

A. never met the artist again

B. published a book the following year

C. published all of his pictures in her book

D. decided to photograph some male models for a book

2.According to the passage, the photos of Andy Warhol     ____.

A. were found missing soon after they were taken

B. were taken when the artist was 19 years old

C. were found missing after Bystedt moved to Los Angeles

D. were taken by Bystedt without the artist’s permission

3.What did Bystedt do after the missing films were found?

A. she published the unseen photos very quickly.

B. she held a party for some artists to view the photos.

C. she spent months repairing the films.

D. she displayed the pictures to make a profit.

4.What would be a suitable title for the passage?

A. Photos of Andy Warhol Lost Forever

B. A special Exhibit of Andy Warhol’s Works

C. Friendship Between an Artist and a Photographer

D. Unseen Portraits of Andy Warhol Lost and Found

 


In my life, my grandfather has influenced me a lot. Ever since I was a little kid, I have always loved sports, especially football. My grandfather also enjoys sports and really loves football. He received a couple of awards in football matches. Through my three years so far in high school, my grandfather has helped me become a better player.

Another reason why I admire my grandfather so much is because of his strong work ethic(道德). Ever since I was a little boy, my grandfather has taught me and shown me what good work ethic means. He is a good example. When he was a young man, his family owned a small store. He often helped his father run the store. He has also done several jobs in his life. He owned his own store when my mother was a young girl; he helped on a farm; he then had his own painting business. Now he is working at a Wal-Mart.

Responsibility(责任) is something that I have struggled with in the past. My grandfather, on the other hand, is a very responsible person. That’s why I am very responsible now, because of him. When he was in school, he was almost a straight A student. I, on the other hand, don’t do so well. One day he had a talk with me about being more responsible. He helped me in school and made me realize how important grades are. Now I get almost As and Bs.

Now you can see why I admire and respect my grandfather as much as I do. He is the best role model I have, and I will always look up to him.
