ps(黑猩猩) will cooperate cert ways, like gatherg war parties to protect their territory. But beyond the um requirts as social gs, they have little stct (本能) to help one other. ps the wild seek food for tselves. Ev p mothers regularly e to share food with their childr. Who are able from a young age to gather their own food.
the laboratory, ps don't naturally share food either. If a p is put a cage where he pull one plate of food for self or, with no great effort, a plate that also provides food for a neighbor to the next cage, he will pull at rdom ---he just doesn't care whether his neighbor gets fed or not. ps are truly selfish.
Hu childr, on the other d are extrely corporative. From the earliest ages, they decide to help others, to share formation d to participate a achievg coon goals. The psychologist Michael Tomasello has studied this cooperativess a series of expsive with very young childr. He ds that if babies aged 18 months see worried adult with ds full tryg to op a door, ost all will mediately try to help.
There are several reasons to believe that the urges to help, form d share are not taught .but naturally possessed young childr. One is that these stcts appear at a very young age before most parts have started to tr childr to behave socially. other is that the helpg behaviors are not proved if the childr are rewarded. A third reason is that social tce. Develops childr before their eral coitive（认知的）skills, at least compared with ps tests conducted by Tomtasell, the childr did no better t the ps on the physical world tests, but were considerably better at understg the social world
The cure of what childr's ds have d ps' don't what Tomasello calls what. Part of this ability is that they fer what others ow or are tg. But that, ev very young childr t to be part of a shared purpose. They actively seek to be part of a "we", a group that tds to work toward a shared goal.

El Nifio, a Spish term for "the Christ child", was ned by South er fisher sho noticed that the global weather pattern, which happs every two to sev years, reduced the ount of fishes caught around Christmas. El Nifio sees warm water, collected over several years the western Pacific, flow back eastwards ds that normally blow westwards , or sometes the other way round.
The weather effects both good d bad, are felt y places. Rich countries more from powerful Nifio, on ce, t they lose. A study found that a strong Nifio 1997 helped er's economy grow by 15 billion, partly because of better agricultural harvest, farmers the Midwest ed from extra r. The total rise agricultural rich countries growth t the fall poor ones.
But donesia extrely dry forests are es. A multi-year drought (干旱） south-east Brazil is becog worse. Though heavy rs brought about by El No may relieve the drought California, they are likely to cause surface floog d other disasters.
The most rt powerful No, 1997-98, killed around 21,000 people d caused age worth $36 billion around the globe. But such Nos come with months of warng, d so much is own about how they happ that governts prepare. Accorg to the Overseas Developt stitute (ODI), however, just 12% of disaster-relief fung the past two decades has gone on redug risks advce, rather t recovery d rebug afterwards. This is despite evce that a dollar spt on risk-reduction saves at least two on reconstruction.
Sple provts to frastructure (基础设施） reduce the spread of disease. Better sewers (下水道）make it less likely that heavy r is followed by outbreak of the disease of bad stomach. Stronger bridges villages are less likely to be left without food d e after floods. Accorg to a paper 2011 by Mr Hsg d co-authors, civil conflict is related to El No's harmful effectsd the poorer the country, the stronger the k. Though the relationship may not be causal, helpg divided counities to prepare for disasters would at least reduce the risk that those disasters are followed by g d woung people. Sce the poorest are least likely to make up for their losses from disasters ked to El No, redug their losses needs to be the priority.

B. It takes place ost every year all over the world.
C. It forces fisher to stop catg fish around Christmas.
D. It sees the ges of water flow direction the o.

Not so long ago, most people 't ow who Shelly n Frcis Pryce was gog to become. She was just average high school athlete. There was every dication that she was just other er tager without much of a future. However, one person ts to ge this. Step Frcis observed t eight-year-old Shelly n as a track meet d was convced that he had s the ng of true greatness. Her te were not exactly pressive, but ev so, he sed there was sometg tryg to get out, sometg the other coaches had overlooked they had assessed her d found her g. He decided to offer Shelly n a place his very strict trg seasons. Their cooperation quickly produced results, d a few year later at aica's Olympic es early 2008, Shelly n, who at that te only rked number 70 the world, beat aica's unged qu of the sprt(短跑).
"Where did she come from?" asked astonished sprtg world, before conclug that she must be one of those one-hit wonders that sprg up from te to te, only to disappear without ss. But Shelly n was to prove that she was ytg but a one-hit wonder. At the g Olympic she swept away y doubts about her ability to perform consisttly by becog the first wo ever to the 100 meters Olympic gold. She did it one year on at the World pionship Briton, becog world pion with a te of 10.73--- the fourth record ever.
Shellyn is a little wo with a big smile. She has a tal touess that did not come about by ce. Her journey to becog the fastest wo on earth has ytg but smooth d effortless. She grew up one of aica's toughest ner-city counities own as Waterhouse, where she lived a one-room apartt, sleepg four a bed with her mother d two brothers. Waterhouse, one of the poorest counities aica, is a really viot d overpopulated place. Several of Shellyn's frds d ily were caught up the gs; one of her couss was shot dead only a few streets away from where she lived. Sometes her ily 't have ough to eat. She r at the school pionships barefooted because she cou't afford shoes. Her mother Maxe, one of a ily of fourt, had athlete herself as a young girl but, like so y other girls Waterhouse, had to stop after she had her first baby. Maxe's early try to the adult world with its responsibilities gave her the deteration to sure that her kids would not d up Waterhouse's roundabout of poverty. One of the first tgs Maxe used to do with Shellyn was tg her to the track, d she was ready to sacrifice everytg.
It 't take long for Shellyn to realize that sports could be her way out of Waterhouse. On a suer evg g 2008, all those long, hard hours of work d coitt ally bore fruit. The barefoot kid who just a few years previously had livg poverty, surrounded by crals d vioce, had writt a new chapter the history of sports.
But Shellyn's victory was far greater t that. The night she won Olympic gold g, the route murders Waterhouse d the drug wars the neighbourg streets stopped. The dark cloud above one of the world's toughest cral neighbourhoods sply disappeared for a few days. " I have so much fire burng for my country,"Shelly said. She ps to start a foundation for homeless childr d ts to build a counity tre Waterhouse. She hopes to spire the s to lay down their weapons. She tds to fight to make it a wo's as well as a 's world.
As Mumad Ali puts it, " pions ar't made gyms. pions are made from sometg they have deep side t. A desire, a dr, a vision." One of the tgs Shellyn be proud of is her understg of this truth.
65. Why did Step Frcis decide to coach Shellyn?
A. He had a strong desire to free her ily from trouble.
B. He ssed a great pottial her despite her esses.
C. She had big pros tg her perforce.
D. She suffered a lot of defeats at the previous track meets.

Other people help us compsate for our tal d otional cies (欠缺)，much as a woo leg compsate for a physical cy. To be exact, other people extd our tce d help us understd d adjust our otions. other person helps us such ways, he or she is participatg what I've called a "social prosthetic (义肢的）syst." Such systs do not need to operate face-to-face, d it's clear to me that the ternet is expg the rge of my own social prosthetic systs. It's already a big k of y ds. Ev its currt state, the ternet has extded my ory d jut.
Regarg ory: Once I look up sometg on the ternet, I don't need to keep all the details for future use-I ow where to d that formation d quickly d easily do so. More erally, the ternet functions as if it were my ory. This function of the ternet is particularly strg I'm writg; I'm no longer comfortable writg if I'm not connected to the ternet. It's become natural to check facts as I write, tg a ute or two to dip to Pued, Wikipedia, or other websites.
Regarg jut: The ternet has made me smarter matters small d large. For exple, I'm writg a textbook, it has become second nature to check a doz itions of a key term, which helps me dig to the core d understd its g. But more t that, I now regularly compare my views with those of y others. If I have a " new idea," I now quickly look to see whether somebody else has already thought of it, or sometg silard I t compare what I tk with what others have thought. This certly makes my own views clearer. Moreover, I d out whether my reactions to evt are reasonable ough by rg about those of others on the ternet.
These effects of the ternet have become ev more strg sce I've begun usg a smartphone. I now regularly pull out my phone to check a fact, watch a video, read weibo. Such activities fill the spaces that used to be dead te (such as waitg for somebody to arrive for a lunch meetg).
But that's the upside (好处).The downside is that those dead periods I oft would let my thoughts flow d sometes would have unexpected sight or idea. Those opportunities are now fewer d farther bet.

Possible version one:
One votg becomes creasgly popular, d y competitions get people volved it. It is eficial to some people, while it puts others to a ma over whether to vote or not.
my opion, one votg is separable part of modern life d should be welcomed, sce it is no more t a way to participate public life. It makes no differce from orary votg evts, which didates go around to seek supports. addition, the ternet makes surveyg d votg easy d convt, regardless of te d space. Furthermore, votg on the ternet makes stt feedback possible.
To be honest, kvoters sometes feel noyed, not because they hate votg, but because they are divided bet otion d fairness. Tgs will turn for the better if we work out some participation rules for people to obey. Therefore, I hold a positive attitude towards on- e votg.
Possible version two:
ternet votg is quite popular nowadays. y people are somewhat puzzled at the negative side of the votg, although some are quite happy with it, d active dog it.
my opion, ternet votg has begun to show its negative pacts on people d society. Firstly, people may feel forced asked to do tgs that they don't t to. Secondly, votg of this d does not depd on the strong pots of the competitors, but rather on how y soetworg resources they have. Thirdly, the voters or ev the competitors y cases are possibly t advtage of by the orizers for coercial purposes.
short, ternet votg, to some extt, is unfair, if not moral, d not be trusted. Therefore, rules should be worked out d strictly observed. Everyone our society should help those need, but it is more portt to be scere d earnest.
