How will you celebrate New Year’s Eve? By having a party with your classmates? Going to the karaoke for a singing competition? Many people around the world celebrate the day. Let’s have a look at what people in other countries do.
In the United States, thousands of people jam into Times Square in New York to welcome in the new year at midnight. The change from New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day is very exciting. People count down the seconds to welcome the new day as the New Year ball slowly gets down and lights up the area.
In Spain, when the clock strikes midnight, everyone eats 12 grapes. They eat one grape for each toll (钟声) to bring good luck for the next 12 months of the new year.

If they live near a beach, after midnight, people go there, light candles in the sand, throw flowers in the sea and make a wish. They say that the goddess who protects the sea will make their wishes come true.

Driving a car is not just handling controls and judging speed and distance. It requires you to predict what other road users will do and get ready to react to something unexpected. When alcohol is consumed, it enters your bloodstream and acts as a depressant (抑制药), damaging eyesight, judgment and co-ordination(协调), slowing down reaction time and greatly increasing the risk of accidents. Even below the drink driving limit, driving will be affected.
Alcohol may take a few minutes to be absorbed into the bloodstream and start action on the brain. Absorption rate is increased when drinking on an empty stomach or when consuming drinks mixed with fruit juice. To get rid of alcohol from the body is a very slow process and it is not possible to speed it up with any measures like taking a shower or having a cup of tea or coffee.
The present Road Traffic Ordinance states clearly that the limit of alcohol concentration is:
● 50 milligrams of alcohol per 100ml of blood; or
● 22 micrograms of alcohol per 100ml of breath; or
● 67 milligrams of alcohol per 100ml of urine (尿液).
Drivers who cause traffic accidents, or who commit a moving traffic offence or are being suspected of drink driving will be tested.
Any drive found drinking beyond the limit will be charged. The driver declared guilty may be fined a maximum of HK $25,000 and be sentenced to up to 3 years in prison and punished for 10 driving-offence points; or temporarily banned from driving.
The same punishment applies to failing to provide specimens (样本) far breath, blood or urine tests without good excuse.
Drink driving is a criminal offence. Be a responsible driver, think before you drink. For the safety of yourself and other road users, never drive after consuming alcohol.
24. The first paragraph is mainly about ________.
A. the introduction of driving skills B. the damage of drinking to your body
C. the effect of drinking on driving D. the process of alcohol being absorbed
25. The underlined word “it” in the second paragraph refers to “________”.
A. alcohol B. absorption C. blood D. process
26. Which of the following is TRUE according to the passage?
A. Drinking below the drink driving limit has no effect on driving.
B. Alcohol is taken in more quickly when drunk with fruit juice.
C. Having a cup of tea helps to get rid of alcohol from the body.
D. 50 milligrams of alcohol per 100ml of breath is below the drink limit.
27. A drive suspected of drink driving ________.
A. should provide specimens for testing
B. will be forbidden to drive for 3years
C. will be punished for 10 driving-offence points
D. should pay a maximum fine of HK $25,000
When milk arrived on the doorstep
When I was a boy growing up in New Jersey in the 1960s, we had a milkman delivering milk to our doorstep. His name was Mr. Basille. He wore a white cap and drove a white truck. As a 5-year-old boy, I couldn’t take my eyes off the coin changer fixed to his belt. He noticed this one day during a delivery and gave me a quarter out of his coin changer.
Of course, he delivered more than milk. There was cheese, eggs and so on. If we needed to change our order, my mother would pen a note-“Please add a bottle of buttermilk next delivery”-and place it in the box along with the empty bottles. And then, the buttermilk would magically appear.
All of this was about more than convenience. There existed a close relationship between families and their milkmen. Mr. Basille even had a key to out house, for those times when it was so cold outside that we put the box indoors, so that the milk wouldn’t freeze. And I remember Mr. Basille from time to time taking a break at our kitchen table, having a cup of tea and telling stories about his delivery.
There is sadly no home milk delivery today. Big companies allowed the production of cheaper milk, thus making it difficult for milkmen to compete. Besides, milk is for sale everywhere, and it may just not have been practical to have a delivery service.
Recently, an old milk box in the countryside I saw brought back my childhood memories. I took it home and planted it on the back porch (门廊). Every so often my son’s friends will ask what it is. So I start telling stories of my boyhood, and of the milkman who brought us friendship along with his milk.
28. Mr Basille gave the boy a quarter out of his coin changer____.
A. to show his magical power. B. to pay for the delivery
C. to satisfy his curiosity. D. to please his mother.
29. What can be inferred from the fact that the milkman had the key to the boy’s house?
A. He wanted to have tea there.
B. He was a respectable person.
C. He was treated as a family member.
D. He was fully trusted by the family.
30. Why does home milk delivery no longer exist?
A. Nobody wants to be a milkman now.
B. It has been driven out of the market.
C. Its service is getting poor.
D. It is forbidden by law.
31. Why did the author bring back home an old milk box?
A. He missed the good old days.
B. He wanted to tell interesting stories.
C. He missed it for his milk bottles.
D. He planted flowers in it.
In many cultures white is often associated with something positive.A white-collar job, for instance, is the kind of job many people look for, working with your brain and not your hands.

Sometimes white is used in expressions that are not good.“Whitewash” is one such expression. At first, “whitewash” meant to paint over something with white paint to make it look better.However, it means something different today: to hide or to cover up mistakes or failures.
A “white elephant” is another example of white used in a negative way. In ancient Thailand, a white elephant was regarded as a sacred animal, but it was very expensive to keep.The kings of those days presented a white elephant to the people they wanted to ruin.Once they received this holy, royal animal as a gift, they were not allowed to sell or kill it.Today, a “white elephant” means something that is big, useless, and unwanted. In America, when people want to get rid of their furniture or clothes, they often have a “white elephant sale”.

Flash Mob: The Pop Culture
If you see a group of people dancing and singing on the street or in the railway station, you don’t need to feel surprised. They are a flash mob. Who are they?

Such an activity might seem amusing, but it might also frighten people who are not aware of what is taking place. ______39_______ They also have enormous economic potential, such as using flash mobs to advertise a product.
