[单选题]Nowadays，we hear a lot about the growing threat of globalization，accompanied by those warnings that the rich pattern of local life is being undermined，and many dialects and traditions are becoming extinct. But stop and think for a moment about the many positive aspects that globalization is bringing. Read on and you are bound to feel comforted，ready to face the global future，which is surely inevitable now. Consider the Internet，that prime example of our shrinking world. Leaving aside the all-to-familiar worries about pornography and political extremism，even the most narrow-minded must admit that the net offers immeasurable benefits，not just in terms of education，the sector for which it was originally designed，but more importantly on a global level，the spread of news and comment. It will be increasingly difficult for politicians to maintain their regimes of misinformation，as the oppressed will not only find support and comfort，but also be able to organize themselves more effectively. MTV is another global provider that is often criticized for imposing popular culture on the unsuspecting millions around the world. Yet the viewers’ judgment on MTV is undoubtedly positive；it is regarded as indispensable by most of the global teenage generation who watch it，a vital part of growing up. And in the final analysis，what harm can a few songs and videos cause？ Is the world dominance of brands like Nike and Coca-Cola so bad for us，when all is said and done？Sportswear and soft drinks are harmless products when compared to the many other things that have been globally available for a longer period of time—heroin and cocaine，for example. In any case，just because Nike shoes and Coke cans are for sale，it doesn’t mean you have to buy them—even globalization cannot deprive the individual of his free will. Critics of globalization can stop issuing their doom and gloom statements. Life goes on，and has more to offer for many citizens of the world than it did for their parents’ generation. 66. Some people feel sad about globalization because they believe it will .

[单选题]A recent report on population trend conducted by the think tank of the Worldwatch Institute identifies signs of slowing growth in some countries.It says populations in 32 countries-all in the industrialized world-have stabilized because of declining birthrates.But in a handful of developing countries where population is slowing, the cause isn’t something to 46 , because more people are dying. This trend is called “population fatigue,” and it’s beginning in many of the developing countries that have experienced 47 birthrates and sharp population growth for several decades.Governments in these countries are now having trouble dealing with feeding, housing and educating an increasing number of children, while at the same time confronting the falling water table,deforestation and soil erosion that rapid population growth brings.In these countries any new threat-infectious disease, drought or famine-can become a full-blown crisis.AIDS is a case 48.WHO estimates calculate that one-quarter of the adult population of Zimbabwe and Botswana are infected with the AIDS virus, 49 ,these countries stands to lose at least one-quarter of their labor force in the next decade from AIDS alone, a situation 50 since the yellow fever swept through Europe in the 14 th century.Social unrest is also increasing in these countries.One example is the 51 conflict between the Tutsis and the Hutus in Rwanda, where population pressures reduced cropland 52 where it could no longer feed those who lived on it.Demands on the world fisheries and shared water resources are likely to spark similar conflicts.Already the waters of the Nile are so heavily used that little reaches the Mediterranean, so any increase in demand or 53 in allocation will also increase tensions. The bottom line is that human population growth is 54 to slow one way or the other. Developing societies will either recognize problems on the horizon and act to encourage smaller families-or unchecked births will have their 55 in rising death rates.
[问答题]When it comes to personal finance, we are all looking for ways to save more money. Our household budgets are filled with both big and small expenses that we imagine can be cut out to save loads of cash or, at the very least, spent better elsewhere. One of the things you have surely considered is using public transportation rather than your own vehicle. It would be easy to assume that public transportation is cheaper, because bus fare is far less expensive than gas, but those are not the only costs to consider. Take a step back to your high school economics class and try to remember the lesson about opportunity costs. These, as you might recall if you were awake for that class, are the things you give up when you choose one option over other options. Although they are not measured in dollars and cents, they still have to be considered whenever you make a financial decision.
