III. Rg Comprsion

the 1960s, Douglas McGregor, one of the key tkers the art of t, developed the mow ous Theory X d Theory Y. Theory X is the idea that people stctively 51 work d will do ytg to avoid it. Theory Y is the view that everyone has the pottial to d satisfaction work.
y case, despite so much evce to the 52 , y agers still agree to Theory X. They believe, 53 , that their ployees need constt supervision if they are to work effectively, or that decisions must be posed from 54 without consultation. This, of course, makes for authoritar (专制的) agers.
Differt cultures have differt ways of 55 people. Unlike authoritar t, some cultures, particularly Asia, are well own for the consultative nature of decisiong-all bers of the departt or work group are asked to 56 to this process.

Some experts say that wo will become more effective agers t because they have the power to reach coon goals a way that traditional 58 agers not.

One early morng, I t to the livg room to d my mother rg a thick book called Best Loved Pos to Read d . My terest was aroused only by the fact that the word "Pos" appeared big, hot pk letters.
"Is it good?" I asked her.
"Yeah," she swered. "There's one I really like d you'll like it, too." I ed forward.
"'Patty Po,'" she read the title. Who is Patty? I wondered. The po :
She never puts her toys away,
Just leaves t scattered① where they lay,... ①散乱的
The po was just three short sections. The al one e quickly:
she grows d gathers poise②, ②稳重
I'll miss her harum-scarum③ noise, ③莽撞的
d look v④ for scattered toys. ④徒劳地
d I'll be sad.
A terrible sorrow washed over me. Whoever Patty was, she was a girl. T, the shock.
"It's you, honey," My mother said sadly.
To my mother, the po revealed a part's affection her child grows up d leaves. To me, the "she" the po was horror. It was my a who would be sad. It was so terrible I burst out cryg.
"What's wrong?" my mother asked.

"Okay," I was still weepg. My pic has gone. But I could not help tg about that silly po. After what sed like a safe ount of te, I read the po d was confused. It all fit so well together, like a puzzle. The guage was sple, so sple I could ply understd its g, yet it was still beautiful. I was now fasated by the idea of poetry, words that had the power to make or break a person's world.
I have sce love with other pos, but "Patty Po" rs my po. After all, "Patty Po" gave me my love for poetry not because it was the po that lifted my spirits, but because it was the one that hurt me the most.

Is there k bet hus d ate ge or not? This question was first studied the early 1900s. Sce t, y stists have thought that our actions do make a differce. 1997, the Kyoto Protocol exped our role the Earth's g atmosphere d set ternational its for gas issions(排放) from 2008 to 2012. Some countries have decided to contue these reductions until 2020. More rtly, the Paris Agrt, stuck by nearly 200 countries, also s to it global warg. But just now how much warmer it will get depds on how deeply countries cut carbon issions.
This is how much tperatures would rise by 2100 ev if nations live up to the itial Paris promises to reduce carbon issions; this rise could still put coastal cities under water d drive over half of all species to extction.
To meet this um goal, the Agrt requires countries to tight issions targets every five years. Ev this crease could sk some isds, worse drought(干旱) d drive a e of up to a third the number of species.
This is the most bitious goal for tperature rise set by the Paris Agrt, after a push by low-lyg isd nations like Kiribati, which say itg tperature rise to 1.5℃ could save t from sg.
This is how much tperatures have ris sce the dustrial age , puttg us 40% of the way to the 2℃ pot.
The base here is average global tperature before the start of the dustrial age.
70. It be concluded from paragraph 1 that _______.
A. the pro of global warg will have quite solved by 2020
B. gas issions have effectively reduced developed countries
C. the Paris Agrts is more flutial t the Kyoto Protocol
D. hus have made contuous efforts to slow down global warg
71. If nations could only keep the itial promises of the Paris Agrt, what would happ by the year 2100?
A. The hu population would crease by one third.
B. Little over 50% of all species would still exist.
C. Nations would not need to tight their issions targets.
D. The Agrt's um goal would not be reached.
72. If those isd nations not far above sea level are to survive, the maxum tperature rise, sce the start of the dustrial age, should be_______.
A. 0.8℃ B. 1.5℃
C. 2℃ D. 3.5℃
ough "gless drivel". That's the message from a group of bers of the UK governt who have exg how social media firms like gather d use social media data.
The House of Coons Sce d Tology Coittee's report, released last week, has ed firms for g people s up to long comprsible legal contracts d calls for ternational stdard or kitark (认证标记) to tify sites that have clear terms d conditions.
"The term d conditions statt that we all carelessly agree to is gless drivel to yone," says drew Miller, the chair of the coittee. stead, he says, firms should provide a pglish version of their terms. The splified version would be checked by a third party d awarded a kitark if it is accurate reflection of the oral.
It is not yet clear who would ister the se, but the UK governt is loog at trodug it on a voluntary basis. "we need to tk through how we make that work practice," says Miller.
Would we pay y more atttion to a kitark? "I tk if you t d did the survey, people would like to tk they would," says Nigel Shadbolt at the University of Soutpton, UK, who studies op data. "We do ow people worry a lot about the appropriate use of their formation." But what would happ practice is other matter, he says.
Other orisations such as ks ask customers to s long contracts they may not read or understd, but Miller believes social media requires special atttion because it is so new. "We still don't ow how st the long-term pact is gog to be of unwise tgs that kids put on social media that come back d bite t 20 years' te," he says.
Shadbolt, who gave evce to the coittee, says the pro is that we don't ow how compies will use our data because their busess models d uses of data are still evolvg. Large collections of personal formation have become valuable only rtly, he says.
The shock d ger a social media firm does sometg with data that people don't expect, ev if users have appartly permission, show that the currt situation isn't worg. If properly istered, a kitark on terms d conditions could help people ow what exactly they are sg up to. Although they would still have to actually read t.
73. What does the phrase " gless drivel" paragraphs 1 d 3 refer to?
A. Legal contracts that social media firms make people s up to.
B. Warngs from the UK governt st unsafe websites.
C. Gues on how to use social media websites properly.

A. their users consist largely of kids under 20 years old
B. the guage their contracts is usually harder to understd
C. the formation they collected could become more valuable future

This new sixonth trial will help us d out if we fluce customers to std on both sides the long term."
Holborn has one of the longest sets of escalators on the Underground network at 23.4 high. Tube bosses that capacity was ited because so few people ted to walk upg only one side was used at all tes. Research has shown that it is more effective use of escalators over 18.5 to g.
The previous trial found that escalators at the station normally carried 2,500 people bet 8: d 9: on a typical day, risg to 3,250 durg the researg period.
