The 30 miles of road winds its way through the mountains of Logan Canyon.It is enough to make most drivers frightened.
But Roger Andersen,a 46-yearold father of four,hadn't expected any trouble on the road on last New Year's Eve when he set off for a ski trip to the Bear River Mountains with his three children.The weather was good for traveling on the slopes（坡）,but the higher they drove,the steeper（陡峭的）the roads became.All of a sudden,the car ran toward the cold Logan River out of control and sank into the water.
There was no time to tell the kids what to do.Within seconds,the car was filled with water."It was frightening that we were completely underwater so fast,remembers Andersen.Confused about the directions,Andersen began to search the freezing water for the kids,but however hard he tried he couldn't find them."If I don't get out,maybe none of us are able to get out."Andersen got out of his seat belt,swam through a broken window to the surface.That was when he saw a group of men,about ten in all,appear on the road.One after another,they raced down and jumped into the water,shouting,"Who else is in the car?"Andersen says thankfully,"It was like the sight of angels."
As the kids fully recovered in the following weeks,Andersen felt eager to thank the men who had saved them.He was surprised to learn that the group was a search-and-rescue team,who knew how to help the kids stay alive.
"It's just unbelievable that you'd have so many people there who knew how to do it,"says Andersen."Many people have asked me,'Did you witness a miracle（奇迹）there?' I always say,'I witnessed dozens.'"

Regret can be a terrible addiction.Those who suffer from it so often become bitter and full of self-pity.It is an emotion that serious entrepreneurs（企业家）cannot afford,they must keep moving ahead and should not look back.As Alexander Graham Bell,inventor of the telephone said: when one door closes,another opens,but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
Entrepreneurs must learn to manage the conflict between constant experiment,which means lots of painful mistakes and a fear of failure,which can lead to paralysis（能力丧失）.
Likewise,past glory can be a killer.For example,Greg Dyke,who is a clever fellow,still looks back too much to his resignation as director-general of the BBC.He should move on and stop complaining about the injustice of it all. And Tim Waterstone should give up trying to buy back his bookshop chain,which he finally left more than lo years ago.He has tried to repurchase it at least five times.
By all means treasure experience and learn from your failure,but don't put yourself in the past sadness.Rather,go ahead and seize the day no matter what it is.I have little time for those who say: I wish I had started my own business. My only response is: so do it now.
28.According to Paragraph 1,regret can make one feel .
A.bitter and self-pity B.upset and hopeless C.disappointed and scared D.confident and brave
29.It can be concluded from Bell's words that .
A.one should learn from others B.shouldn't forget the past
C.one should keep moving ahead D.life often gives us many challenges
30.When entrepreneurs face conflict,they will experience .
A.arguments and failure B.mistakes and fear C.choices and changes D.encouragement and confusion
31.What is the main idea of the text?
A.One should feel regret about the past. B.One should give oneself opportunity.
C.One should act now and look into the future. D.One should be confident about the past.
Higher income has already been linked to greater longevity and better health.A new study by a famous researcher suggests geographic location plays an key role in life expectancy（预期）for lower earners.That means if you're poor,you're likely to live for longer in a city like San Francisco or New York than in a city like Detroit or Cincinnati.
Being rich anywhere broadly means enjoying good health anywhere,but location is a key factor in health for people in lower income groups.Michael Stepner,one of the study's co-authors,said economic decline and decreasing populations in the Rust Belt aren't necessarily to blame.
The study found that location matters for low earners.Low-income individuals tend to live more healthily and for longer in cities with college-educated populations,high incomes,more immigrants,and high levels of government expenses,such as New York and San Francisco.The study also found measures of health—insurance coverage and health spending were of lesser importance than social and economic factors in determining health for low-income individuals.Nor did having health insurance seem to be a factor in increasing life expectancy for poorer groups."The key driver of differences in inequality across areas of life expectancy is probably not access to health care,"Mr Stepner said.
32.The underlined word "longevity" in Paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to " ".
A.successful experience B.long life C.good relationship D.young appearance
33.What is a key part in life expectancy for lower earners?
A.Warm climate. B.Higher income. C.Good education. D.Geographic location.
34.Where would this text most probably appear?
A.Travel guide. B.Health research. C.Sports newspaper. D.Science fiction.
35.What is the best title for this text?
A.Higher earners like living abroad.
B.Being rich means having a happy life everywhere.
C.Lower earners are likely to live for longer in big cities
D.The government is trying its best to make people live longer

People always communicate with words.Do you think you can communicate with words?A smile on your face shows you are happily or friendly.Tears in eyes told others that you are sad.When you put down your hand in class, the teacher knows they want to say something.Other things can also express message.For example,a sign at the bus stop helps you know that which bus to take.Signs on the door tell you whether to go in and out.Have you ever seen that there is a lot of signs around you and that you receive messages from them all time?
