??? I think it is safe to say that happiness is the king of emotions. Everyone wants to talk about how to get it, ways to prolong it and the benefits associated with it. Not surprisingly, negative emotions are considered to be bad. 1. But bad feelings can be a valuable way to arouse you to take action. In fact, they can be a surprising source of personal growth by doing the following things.

● Recognize what you are feeling.? There are going to be times when the negative emotions are just temporary. 2. However, if it happens on a frequent basis, your mind is trying to tell you something and you need to handle it.

3. Once you recognize the negative emotion you are feeling, you need to understand just what is behind it. The trouble is that often the cause of your bad feelings might be hard to see. Is it your home life, work, friends, unrealized dreams or various other frustrations? Take your time figuring it out and get to the root of what is causing the negative emotion.

● Take correct action. In some cases, it might be easy. If someone consistently makes you angry, you can just avoid them. In many other cases, you might need to take even bolder(大胆的) action. 4. Hopefully you have a different opinion on negative emotions now. They are not things designed to only make your life miserable. 5.

A. Understand the causes.

B. Action is the real cause of pain.

C. Acknowledge your true feelings.

D. They are to be avoided at all costs.

E. What they really are is a signal for change.

F. Everyone feels a little down every once in a while.

G. An example of that would be ending a failing marriage or quitting your job.

 

??? The dangers of drowsy(昏昏欲睡) driving have been widely known. Now several companies have developed face-tracking technology that can tell when drivers become dangerously sleepy.

Here is how it might work. A camera in your car monitors your facial expression, compares it to a database of expressions and determines if you are likely sleepy or distracted. The car then alerts you to pay attention or pull over.

Affectiva has developed emotion recognition technology that aims to detect when people are just starting to get tired. The idea is to catch the warning signs before drowsiness really strikes. “Actually, when someone is drowsy, that is too late.” Gabi, vice president of Affectiva said. “What if you can see trends in someone’s face about five minutes before they become sleepy?” Affectiva’s program can recognize seven different emotions and 15 facial expressions. Its standards were developed by sifting (筛选) through a database of 4 million faces from 75 countries, said Zijderveld. She suggested that carmakers could coordinate (协调)the program’s facial recognition data with oral reminders, such as sound warnings, or nonverbalalerts, like a change of temperature and vibrations continuous slight shaking movements.

Eyeris is another company working in facial analytics. Modar Alaoui, the company’s CEO, said that its software detects “eye openness” in addition to other facial indicators. The software can also read head position, which may indicate when someone begins to nod off.

These technologies aren’t the first attempt to fight drowsiness behind the wheel. Inventors came up with the similar device “sleeper beeper” to prevent sleep in cars back in 1983. The sleeper beeper was attached to a driver’s ear and would issue a noisy warning when the driver’s head nodded past a certain point. But the latest software would intervene (干涉) earlier and more effectively.

1.The camera in the car can determine if a driver is ________.

A. cold-blooded B. near-sighted

C. bad-tempered D. absent-minded

2.When will drivers be reminded to pay attention or pull over by the face-tracking technology?

A. When they are just beginning to get tired.

B. Five minutes after they become sleepy.

C. When they are really tired.

D. When they are drowsy.

3.It is most likely that the “sleeper beeper” would send out a warning by ________.

A. shaking slightly B. making noise

C. flashing brilliantly D. changing temperature

4.What is the main idea of the text?

A. The dangers of drowsy driving have been widely known.

B. Inventors have tried out the similar device “sleeper beeper”.

C. Several companies have found some ways to fight drowisness behind the wheel.

D. Face-tracking technology for drowsy driving has been developed by several companies.

 

??? In the space of just two years, the app Douyin, created by Beijing-based company ByteDance, has gathered more than half a billion users—around 40 of them outside China—who share short videos of themselves lip-syncing (假唱), cooking, dancing or just being silly. What sets ByteDance apart is its success in the social media category, which is controlled by Facebook, Twitter and Snap—all Western companies.

ByteDance calls itself an artificial intelligence company. It uses machine learning and algorithms (算法) to figure out what people like most and give them more of what they want to see. On Douyin, people can edit and beautify 15-second videos before posting them online. The app has even made a phrase to describe people glued to their customized feeds: “shua Douyin” or “scrolling through Douyin”.? Last year, the company released TikTok, the overseas version of Douyin. ByteDance’s growing video empire has made it the world’s fifth biggest app maker. ByteDance says TikTok and Douyin together have more than 500 million monthly active users.

Investors like ByteDance because its hundreds of millions of users attract a lot of advertising money. The video apps are lucrative because they attract a lot of users in their teens and 20s, who are more generous with the money. ByteDance also makes money through income sharing deals. People on TikTok, for example, can buy digital coins to give to other people on the app—like throwing money in a performer’s tip jar. ByteDance takes a cut of those earnings.

ByteDance’s founder and CEO is Zhang Yiming, a 35-year-old former Microsoft employee. People who have worked with Zhang describe him as someone who thinks deeply about technology and spends much of his free time writing code.

Like Facebook and Twitter, ByteDance is also battling fake news and inappropriate content. ByteDance promises to add thousands more employees to review the content on Douyin.

1.What makes ByteDance so special?

A. Its app challenges similar companies’ rule in Western world.

B. It invented the social media app initially in the world.

C. It is the biggest artificial intelligence company on the earth.

D. It has controlled Facebook, Twitter and Snap.

2.Why is Douyin so popular?

A. It is a new generation hi-tech product.

B. It has both home and overseas version.

C. It is easy and totally free to operate online.

D. It meets the demand of people individually.

3.How does ByteDance make a profit?

A. By charging the users. B. By charging the advertisement.

C. By forcing the users to donate. D. By selling its artificial intelligence.

4.What can be the best title for the text?

A. Douyin, a Popular App

B. ByteDance, a Successful Company

C. Facebook Together with Douyin Is Batting Fake News

D. Twitter Is Helping Douyin Attract More Advertising Money

 

??? In the western Los Angeles sits the famous city of Hollywood, known as the global center of movie studios and film stars.

The Selig Film Manufacturing Company was the first major film company to come to Hollywood, shooting its first film entitled The Heart of A Race Tout in 1908. The next year the film company built the first permanent film studio.

Although electric lights existed at that time, none were powerful enough to adequately expose film. The best source of illumination for movie production was nature sunlight. Besides the sunny weather, film producers were also drawn to Hollywood because of its open spaces and wide variety of natural scenery.

Another reason was the distance of Southern California from New Jersey, which made it more difficult for Thomas Edison to enforce his film patents. At that time, Edison owned almost all the patents relevant to film production. As a result, in the East, movie producers acting independently out of Edison’s Motion Picture Patents Company were often accused by Edison. But in Los Angeles, things were different. If he sent his men to California, word would usually reach Los Angeles before they did and the movie makers could escape to nearby Mexico.

In 1911, a second movie studio—Nestor Studios, was founded. At about the same time, many film production companies from New York and New Jersey started moving to sunny California because of the good weather.

The first Academy Awards presentation ceremony took place in 1929 in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. Tickets were $10 and there were 250 people attending the ceremony.

From about 1930, five major “Hollywood” movie studios in Hollywood, Paramount, RKO, 20th Century Fox, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Warner Bros, owned almost all large theatres throughout the country for the exhibition of their movies. The period between the years 1927 to 1984 was considered the “Golden Age of Hollywood”.

1.The word “illumination” in the third paragraph can be replaced by ________.

A. light B. story

C. patent D. film

2.According to the text, film producers were drawn to Hollywood for the following reasons EXCEPT ________.

A. open spaces B. various scenery

C. unique culture D. sunny weather

3.What can we infer from paragraph 4?

A. Thomas Edison moved his office to Hollywood to enforce his film patents.

B. Movie producers working on the West Coast were never accused by Edison.

C. Edison’s Motion Picture Patents Company owned many studios in Hollywood.

D. Movie makers in Los Angeles could work independently out of Edison’s control.

4.What do we know about the first Academy Awards presentation ceremony?

A. It was held in a restaurant.

B. There were 250 people receiving the awards.

C. There were 250 people present at the ceremony.

D. It was held by five major “Hollywood” movie studios.

 

??? If you have never been on a cruise (乘船游览), it can seem like its own world—with its own rules and secret language. So here we are going to lay out the very basics of going on a cruise.

Do I need a passport to go on a cruise?

You may need a passport, but you should take one anyway. Besides the fact that you are going to need an ID card to board the ship in the first place, a lot of ports require one.

How much luggage can I take on board?

For the most part, cruise ships aren’t like planes—there isn’t a strictly regulated amount of luggage you can take with you, and you are not going to be charged for bringing too much. Keep in mind that cabin storage space can be tight.? Everything, including your empty luggage, is going to have to fit inside and you don’t want to be tripping over it for your whole vacation.

Things like guns and knives are banned, but regulations vary from ship to ship about things like irons generally a no and hair dryers generally a yes. Some ships allow you to bring a bottle of wine, but nearly all ban bringing your own hard alcohol.

What’s the process for boarding a cruise ship?

Boarding a cruise ship is like boarding a plane—there are regulations or when to arrive, how to check-in, and what security you have to go through. Most cruise lines have transportation available from the airport; otherwise they normally own a paid parking lot where you can leave your car.

1.What will you have to show when you board a ship in the first place?

A. A credit card. B. A post card.

C. An ID card. D. Luggage.

2.What can you take when you are on a cruise?

A. As much alcohol as you can. B. More luggage than on a plane.

C. Less luggage than on a plane. D. As many guns and knives as you can.

3.Where does the text probably come from?

A. A storybook. B. A guidebook.

C. A book review. D. A science report.

??? It is widely accepted that nightmares (噩梦) are a reaction to negative experiences that happen during waking hours. However, some scientists believe that nightmares do have some real benefits. One 2017 study, for example, found that frequent nightmare sufferers rated themselves as more empathetic (有同理心的). They also displayed more of a tendency to unconsciously mirror other people through things like yawning People who have constant nightmares also tend to think further outside the box on psychoanalysis tasks. Some other researchers have found support for the idea that nightmares might be linked to creativity.

People seeking cure for nightmares were not necessarily more fearful or anxious, but rather had a general sensitivity to all emotional experience. Sensitivity is the driving force behind intense dreams. Heightened sensitivity to threats or fear during the day results in nightmares, whereas heightened passion or excitement may result in positive dreams. And both these forms of dreams may feed back into waking life, perhaps increasing suffering after nightmares, or promoting social bonds and empathy after positive dreams.

The effects go further still. This sensitivity overflows into awareness and thoughts people who have a lot of nightmares experience a dreamlike quality to their waking thoughts. And this kind of thinking seems to give them a creative edge. For instance, studies show that such people tend to have greater creative talent and artistic express and people who often have nightmares also tend to have more positive dreams than the average person.

The evidence points towards the idea that, rather than disturbing normal activity, people who are unfortunate in having a lot of nightmares also have a dreaming life that is at least as creative, positive and vivid as it can be distressing and terrifying. What’s more, this imaginative richness is unlikely to be limited to sleep, but also is filled with waking thoughts and daydreams. Even after people wake up and shake off the nightmare, in other words, a mark of it stays behind, possessing them throughout the day.

1.Which can best explain the underlined words “think further outside of the box” in Paragraph 1?

A. To think differently. B. To think positively.

C. To think critically. D. To think unconsciously.

2.How can nightmare sufferers probably stop nightmares in theory according to the text?

A. Be more fearful or anxious to nightmares.

B. Try to reduce sensitivity to threats or fear.

C. Avoid excitement as much as possible.

D. Promote social bonds and empathy.

3.What can we infer from the last paragraph?

A. The influence of nightmares is continuing for a long time.

B. People who suffer from nightmares cannot live a normal life.

C. Nightmares are a necessary part of creative thinking.

D. Nightmare is a reflection of waking behavior.

4.What can be the best title for the text?

A. The Solution of Nightmares B. The Benefits of Nightmares

C. The Empathy of Nightmares D. The Tendency of Nightmares

??? When the clock struck midnight on February 23, my flight left the Egyptian capital Cairo heading for Beijing. I was about to start a 10-month program organized by China’s Public Diplomacy Association.

During this program offered to African journalists to better understand China and report on some important events, one being the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in September, I gained a lot of knowledge regarding the culture, history, and features of this vast society.

Upon arrival, I first sought out the Egyptian community in Beijing, and met two journalists from my country who worked for Xinhua News Agency and China Global Television Network. Our gathering point was an Egyptian coffee shop in Sanlitun, a well-known meeting place for foreigners in Beijing. Most of our meetings were spent sharing experiences about life in China. Indeed, I was able to begin understanding the country through their stories. Plus, through those friends I expanded my circle.

I also struck up a relationship with some Chinese journalists while participating in activities with my African peers. They helped me appreciate the rich culture and eventful history of ancient China, as well as the massive developments over the last 40 years, both politically and economically

During my stay, I traveled to nine provinces and visited masses of cities. The place I was most connected with was Sanya due to its similarities to Sharm El-Sheikh, one of the world’s most famous tourist destinations, located on the Red Sea in Egypt.

Shanghai will also last in my memory. I discover that this city is not only distinguished for business deals, but has a colorful history illustrated by its fantastic museum, which tells the story of how Shanghai’s importance grew in the 19th century.

When walking in Beijing or any of the other cities I visited, I always felt history mixed with signs of modernity, mirroring four decades of hard work. I recorded many aspects of my life in china.

Surprisingly, mild weather means that locals and travelers alike can take full advantage of the impressive surroundings, whether that means hiking, or admiring the scenery and the unique Fishermen’s huts.

Eze

Eze is a breathtakingly beautiful place, located on the French Riviera. Rising 1, 400 feet above the sea, it overlooks the coasts and offers amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea. In addition to its location, Eze features a certain medieval (中世纪的) charm, thanks to its many well-preserved centuries-old buildings. Not surprisingly, the fairy-tale village was a favorite of Walt Disney’s

As was reported that there was an accident at a corner of the Roman Street in this morning. A car ran into a truck and fortunately, nobody got injured. Who will be responsible for an accident is still under investigation. What the police should do now is that they must find out what led the accident. They said it was difficult of them to judge because how the accident happened was not clear. Perhaps the reason was that the driver was too tiring to stop the car in time. The driver didn't admit the fact that he is driving too fast at the turning. The police doubted that what he said was true and decided to make a farther investigation.

??? Whether you use a GPS device(设备) in your car or Google Maps on your smartphone, few of us travel anymore without digital help. 1. For one thing, GPS isn’t as accurate as you might think. What’s more, science is beginning to discover that people who rely only on navigational technologies may have a poor sense of place during travel.

2. They soon become outdated as cities change, requiring users to continually purchase updated versions. They’re also easily damaged from exposure to water, poor weather conditions and other physical forces.

However, paper maps still offer a few advantages that technologies can’t. For example, studying a map allows you to get a full view of where you’re going, including the roads, forests, towns, historic sites, rivers and mountains you’ll come across along the way. Many older maps are wonderful, offering a lovely feast for the eyes. 3.

Research by Toru Ishikawa and colleagues at the University of Tokyo found that GPS users spent 30 more time looking at their device than those who used a paper map. 4. Instead they tended to stare at their screens and follow directions, never gaining a full view of where they were going.

Therefore, go ahead and use your GPS, but also carry a paper map as a handy backup. 5.? Also it could even be a life-saver!

A. It will improve your travel experiences.

B. But don’t hurry to fold up your paper maps.

C. They also had a poorer recollection of surrounding scenery.

D. Compared with digital maps, paper maps do have disadvantages.

E. What’s more, paper maps tend to focus on smaller geographic areas.

F. They can also take you back in time to have a glimpse(瞥) of history.

G. In other words, they didn’t see or experience much during their travels.

 

??? An international team of researchers from the University of Oxford have found that the way people use the Internet is closely tied to the seasonal movements in the natural world. Their online species searches follow the patterns of seasonal animal migrations (迁徙).

Migratory birds (候鸟) flood back to where they reproduce every spring. That migratory behavior is accompanied by some human behavior. “In English-language Wikipedia (维基百科), the online searches for migratory species tend to increase in spring when those birds arrive in the United States,” said the lead author John Mittermeier.

And not just birds. Mittermeier and his team surveyed nearly 2.5 billion Wikipedia search records, for 32,000 species, across 245 languages. They also saw variable search rates for insects, horsetails and flowering plants. Seasonal trends seemed to be widespread in Wikipedia behavior for many species of plants and animals.

This finding suggests new ways to monitor changes in the world’s biological diversity. It also shows new ways to see how much people care about nature, and which species and areas might be the most effective targets for conservation.

Mittermeier is encouraged by the search results. He commented, “I think there’s a concern among conservationists (生态环境保护者) that people are losing touch with the natural world and that they’re not interacting with native species anymore. And so in that sense, it was really exciting and quite unexpected for me to see people’s Wikipedia interest closely related to changes in nature.”

Richard Grenyer, Associate Professor from the University of Oxford, says search data is useful to conservation biologists, “By using these big data approaches, we can direct our attention towards the difficult questions in modern conservation: which species and areas are changing, and where are the people who care the most and can do the most to help.”

1.What have researchers found about species searches?

A. They strengthen ties among people.

B. They affect the animal movements.

C. They differ in language backgrounds.

D. They reflect animal migration seasons.

2.What is the purpose of writing Paragraph 3?

A. To summarize the research process.

B. To further support the research findings.

C. To show the variety of species searches.

D. To present researchers’ heavy work load.

3.How does Mittermeier feel about the search results?

A. Satisfied with Wikipedia’s service.

B. Worried about Wikipedia behavior.

C. Amazed at people’s care about nature.

D. Sad about people’s not getting close to nature.

4.Why does Richard think such search data is useful?

A. It helps to aim at conservation targets.

B. It increases interest in big data approaches.

C. It keeps track of trends in biologists’work.

D. It pushes people to solve difficult problems.

 

??? My two- and four-year-old boys love to win, whether they’re racing their bikes down the sidewalk or just finishing their snacks. It’s true that those with high status, from world leaders and prize winners to athletes and movie stars, are people we like and respect. A recent study published in Nature Human Behaviour showed that we seem to have an innate(天生的)preference for high-ranking peoples——but only if those people aren’t hurtful toward others.

Researchers showed toddlersaged 21 to 31 months a scene where two puppets(木偶) approached one another from opposite sides of a stage and one bowed to let the other pass first. Asked which puppet they liked better, 18 of the 21 toddlers in the experiment reached for the puppet who had been allowed to pass. Because respect from others is a marker of status, this suggests that children have a preference for those with a higher status—even before age three.

However, the results were quite different when two puppets approached one another and one used force to knock the other down before continuing to the other side. In this case, 18 of the 21 toddlers reached for the one who was knocked down. As the researchers concluded, “When approaching others, very young children care not only who wins, but also how.” The previous experiment has shown that toddlers know about social status, but this experiment went one step further by proving they have an obvious preference for high status. Since the participants were so young, this might even be an innate human preference.

In a word, this new research suggests that young children appreciate people who do well while at the same time doing good to others. So, when my four-year-old thinks that he has to get his shoes on first, I’ll keep reminding him that helping his brother so they both finish faster is what winning is all about.

1.What do we tend to do according to the first paragraph?

A. Seek challenges all the time. B. Admire high-ranking people.

C. Take advantage of high status. D. Hurt others with offensive words.

2.Why did toddlers prefer the puppet allowed to pass?

A. It looked adorable. B. It behaved smartly.

C. It seemed polite. D. It was respected.

3.What can we infer from the latter study?

A. Slower people are better loved by toddlers.

B. People naturally dislike unkind behavior.

C. Toddlers care little about high social status.

D. Being helpful contributes to being supported.

4.What should we do when we encourage children to win?

A. Instruct them to use proper and creative ways.

B. Advise them to be as hardworking as possible.

C. Remind them to be considerate to other people.

D. Tell them to try to cooperate with someone else.

 

??? When we see a person in trouble, the first idea that comes to our mind is to lend a hand. But what if we see an animal in trouble, does the same rule apply?

This question was raised after a group of penguins were saved from an icy gully(峡谷)in Antarctica. It was filmed for the BBC wildlife series Dynasties. The film crew were anxious when they saw that a group of penguins had fallen into a gully and been trapped with their young. They built a slope(斜坡)so that a few of the penguins could save themselves.

The case has taken the international media by storm. Viewers watching this film let out a sigh of relief. “I’m so glad. I understand not taking action directly, but a helping hand isn’t bothering, right?” viewer Kathryn Shaw said on her Facebook.

However, others think human interference(干涉) is unnatural. “You can’t have sunshine throughout your life. To have done anything else would only make matters worse,” said the show’s creator David Attenborough, according to The Times.

In this case, however, Mike Gunton, the executive producer of the series, said that this was a one-off situation. “There were no animals going to suffer by interfering. You weren’t touching the animals and it was just felt by doing this... they had the chance not to have to keep slipping down the slope,” he told the BBC.

Such cases are familiar to Paul Nicklen, wildlife photographer for National Geographic. He told Metro, “If it’s ever a predator(捕食者)situation, no matter how gut-wrenching, you stay out of the way. Even when you’re watching a male polar bear eat a baby bear.”

“There’s no rule book in those situations. You can only respond to the facts that are right there in front of you,” Will Lawson, the show’s director, told Daily Mail.

1.What has led to a heated media discussion?

A. People’s various remarks on penguins. B. The rescue of penguins from a gully.

C. Some penguins’ sufferings in a gully. D. Ways of filming the series Dynasties.

2.Who holds a positive attitude towards human interference?

A. Kathryn Shaw. B. Will Lawson.

C. Paul Nieklen. D. David Attenborough.

3.Which of the following best explains the word “gut-wrenching” underlined in paragraph 6?

A. Putting one in place. B. Making one confused.

C. Putting one in danger. D. Making one heartbroken.

4.What can be a suitable title for the text?

A. Reasons for the Necessity of Lending a Hand to Animals

B. Suggestions on How to Protect Animals From Danger

C. Effects of Human Interference on Dangerous Animals

D. Opinions on Whether to Help Animals in Trouble or Not

 

Dark Sky Parks around the World

Warrumbungle National Park

Situated in the central west slopes of New South Wales is Australia’s only dark sky park, Warrumbungle. The park has served as a dark sky park since July 2016. Its crystal-clear night skies and high altitude make it a natural, educational, and astronomical heritage site in the southern half of the earth. Tourists can use Australia’s largest optical telescope within the park boundaries to view the auroras(极光)the Milky Way, and faint shooting stars.

Sark

Sark is a Channel Island near the coast of Normandy under the protection of the UK. It was the World’s First Dark Sky Island set up in January 2011. Its historical and cultural blend attracts over 40,000 tourists annually. With no motor vehicles and public lighting on the island, there is an exceptional view of the dark skies. A rich Milky Way is visible in the dark night skies from the shores of the island.

Pic du Midi de Bigorre

Pic du Midi de Bigorre in France was designated as a dark sky park in December 2013 making it the second largest dark sky park in the world. The park covers 3.112 square kilometers spread across the Pyrenees National Park and UNESCO’s World Heritage site, Pyrenees-Mont Perdu. The park attracts over one hundred star watchers every year. The Observatory Midi-Pyrenees, which was built in 1870, is one of the world’s highest museums at a height of 2,877 meters above sea level.

Ramon Crater/Makhtesh Ramon

Ramon Crater is a unique 1,100-square-kilometer nature reserve located in the Negev Desert in Israel. In 2017, the Ramon Crater became the first designated dark sky park in the Middle East. Its location, rough climate, and forbidding landscape that are characteristic of the Negev have largely defeated historical attempts for human settlement, making it a great place to view the night skies. Stargazers usually camp in the desert to have an uninterrupted view of the stars, planets, and the Milky Way.

1.Which park serves as a heritage site for astronomy?

A. Sark.

B. Pic du Midi de Bigorre.

C. Warrumbungle National Park.

D. Ramon Crater/Makhtesh Ramon.

2.What do we know about Sark from the passage?

A. Not a single car runs there.

B. It was an island belonging to Normandy.

C. The Milky Way can only be seen there.

D. Visitors like to stay on the island in groups.

3.What makes it difficult for humans to live in Ramon Crater?

A. High altitude. B. The large area.

C. Geographical conditions. D. Cultural features.

 

阅读下面短文,根据其内容写一篇 60 词左右的内容概要。

Children form opinions about drugs and alcohol at a very early age. Even four and five year olds have definite opinions about alcohol. Preschoolers, because of the commercials(商业广告) they see on TV, often think that alcohol helps people have more fun and be better athletes! Images of alcohol are everywhere in our society—consumption of alcohol is represented twice per hour in daytime shows, and three times in an average evening program. Also, posters about alcohol can be seen on buses, at underground stations, in streets and so on.

Despite the wide spread of alcohol in our society, and the problems that can be connected with it, many parents feel uncomfortable when talking about alcohol with their children, or are not sure when and how to start. Many parents believe that teenage drinking is something that their children would never be involved in.

Unfortunately, teenage drinking is very common in North Dakota. In a statewide survey of adolescents in junior and senior high school, only 24% claimed to have never consumed alcohol. When asked about their drinking in the past 30 days:

?61% adolescents reported drinking

?42% drank five or more drinks in a row

?17% reported binge(大吃大喝) drinking

?4.2% reported driving and drinking

Other research on rural youth in North Dakota has found that about 10% of a sample of fifth and sixth graders were engaged in frequent drinking. Teenagers who reported alcohol use (especially those who began use in late elementary school and junior high school) were more likely to be depressed, feel less positive about both their family and friends, and have poorer grades.

Research has found that children and even teenagers turn to their parents in making decisions about important things in their life. Decisions about using alcohol are undoubtedly something that parents will want to provide guidance about. So it’s high time that parents should talk to children about alcohol seriously.
