Need a fall fix? Try one from these great places.
1. Mackinac Island, Michigan
The only way to reach this famed car-free island is by boat and ferry, and once visitors arrive, they are attracted by the history, scenery and fall colors. “It’s a throwback to years past, a little town, and there’s a big state park as well,” Blackwell says. “ You’re allowed to have boats all around the island.”
2. Tellico Lake, Tennessee
With nearly 400 miles of shoreline, this waterway flowing out of the Great Smoky Mountains is largely unexploited, well-protected in its natural state. Fall visitors find a range of colors reflecting in the clean waters, says Blackwell, who vacationed in the area with his family as a child. “The thick forest there just allows you to see more greenery and wildlife."
3. Dillon Reservoir, Colorado
With an hour from Denver, this lake is home to what claims to be the nation's highest sailing club, at an altitude of more than 9,000 feet. Marinas in the towns of Dillon and Frisco make it easy to get out on he water and to see the bright yellows and golds of fall leaves. “ People are surprised that there's boating in Colorado, and you can see the mountains just before the snowball," Blackwell says.
4. Lake Monroe, Indiana
The state’s largest lake is surrounded by more than 13,000 acres of protected forest and three recreation areas, making it an ideal place to see fall colors, particularly from oaks and the tulip poplar, the state tree. “ It’s a gem (宝石) in southern Indiana," says Blackwell, who grew up in the area. “There are lots of different activities: canoeing, kayaking and fishing.”
1. What is special about Mackinac Island?

When HarmonyOs, the Chinese self-developed operating system for Huawei mobile devices, was released on Aug 9, it quickly became a hot topic on social media. Many believe it not only represents the rise of the country as a tech power, but also shows respect to classical Chinese culture by naming the system "Hongmcng " in Chinese.
"Hongmeng" is a classical word from Zhuangzi. In the ancient times of Chinese legend and myths (神话),“Hongmeng" was used to describe the original state of the universe before matter existed. For HarmonyOS, "Hongmeng" indicates the developers’ aim to make an innovative?operating system, unlike any other.
Besides "Hongmeng'", Hunwei has also registered many of its products under the names of legendary creatures from Chinese myths. For example, the company's Kirin mobile chip got its name after a lucky monster called "Qilin". ?And its server chip is calked "Kunpeng”, a creature that changed from a fish into a giant bird.
Many Chinese Internet users and media have praised Huawei's use of these names," as they stand for Chinese wisdom and ancient people’s imagination and spirit of exploration”, Global Times noted.
In fact, Huawei is not alone in using traditional culture for modern ventures. Ne Zha, the new film, also portrays traditional culture in a modern context. The movie is loosely based on the well-known work of classical Chinese myth The Investiture of the Gods. Earlier this month it became the biggest animated movie in China and was called “ the glory of domestic anime (国产动漫)”.
Indeed, the long history and splendid classic works have given China a profound culture. Myths and legends are the creative works of tremendous imagination. As Global Times put it, today by revisiting a modern context, “ ancient myths has the power to inspire imagination in young people”. After all, imagination is the beginning of creation.
4. What do we know about HamonyOS?
A. Its release raised a storm of objections.
B. It is named after creature in myth.
C. It combines high technology and culture.
D. It's the best operating system.
5. Which of the following best explains "innovative” underlined in Paragraph 2?
A. creative B. modern
C. popular D. intelligent
6. How do the public think of Huawei's use of the names?
A. Confused. B. Unexpected.
C. Approving. D. Doubtful.
7. What can be inferred from the last two paragraphs?
A. The film Ne Zha is not adapted from myths.
B. The film Ne Zha is a big hit.
C. More businesses follow Huawei's lead.
D. Ancient myths is a good choice for entertainment.
People who sleep fewer than six hours a night are more likely to die early, researchers in University of Warwick have found in a recent study. They discovered that people who slept for less than six hours each night were 12% more likely to die before the age of 65 than those who slept the recommended six to eight hours a night.
The researchers pointed out that previous studies had shown that the lack of sleep was associated with problems like heart disease and high blood pressure. However, the researchers also found that sleeping too much was linked to an early death. Those who slept for more than nine hours a night were 30% more likely to die early, as an article in the latest Sleep?suggested. That directly contradicts another passage in the same journal last month suggesting that people who slept for ten hours or longer a night were more likely to live to 100. This was thought to be because people who lived into extreme old age were healthier and therefore slept better.
However, the authors of the latest research contradicted this and suggested that long sleep was a sign of underlying illnesses such as depression and low levels of physical activity. Professor Francesco Cappuccio at the University of Warwick said: “While short sleep may represent a cause of ill-health, long sleep is believed to represent more an indicator of ill-health.”
He also mentioned: “Modern society has seen a gradual reduction in the average amount of sleep people take, and this pattern is more common among full-time workers, suggesting that it may be due to social pressures for longer working hours. On the other hand, the worsening of our health is often accompanied by an extension of our sleeping time.”
“Consistently sleeping six to eight hours per night may be good for health. However, whether to achieve the goal depends on various factors such as the environment as well as measures of public health aimed at favourable changes of the working environments,” Professor Francesco Cappuccio added.
8. What did researchers in University of Warwick find?
A. People who sleep fewer than 6 hours each night die before 65.
B. Sleeping for more than 9 hours a night does good to one’s health.
C. Six to eight hours’ sleep can be appropriate for people.
D. People at an old age are healthier because they sleep longer.
9. What is Professor Francesco Cappuccio most likely to agree with?
A. Long sleep is what causes our health problems.
B. Modern people sleep less because they work longer.
C. Our health becomes worse because we sleep less.
D. How long we sleep depends on our education.
10. What did the researcher think may help people have proper sleep?
A. Social pressure. B. Longer working hours.
C. Extension of sleeping time. D. Changes of working environments.
11. What can be the best title for this passage?
A. How Long Should We Sleep B. Longer Sleep Makes Better Health
C. Time to Sleep Early D. The Importance of Sleep
Imagine a school where self-awareness is celebrated, students are encouraged to solve maths problems by writing on the walls and applying learned lessons to real life is more important than homework. These are a few of the concepts that makes Space of Mind School unique.
Located in a home built in 1896 in Florida, US, the program serves students in grades 2 through 12 and will accept kindergarten students next year. It also offers an after-school program for students who attend traditional schools, as well as evening programs for adults and educators and weekend events for families.
There is a different atmosphere from that of a traditional school building. Tables and brightly colored walls are white boards. In the science room, students are studying climate changes at a weather station, while in the music room, a student is solving an equation (等式) with his academic coach while he connects music theory and maths.
The daily schedule at the school also stands out. “ We don’t assign boring or exhausting homework.” said Space of Mind founder and CEO Ali Kaufman. “ Instead of homework, we ask that they go home and take a video of themselves applying a lesson they learned or cooking a meal for their family that they learned how to make at school.”
For lunch, instead of traditional cafeteria dishes such as pizza, the school offers organic meals made out of products from local gardens and farms. “ Our students also run a business at the Delray Beach Green Market on Saturdays so they can understand sustainable living practices and how to run a business,” Kafman said.
“ We are also the first school program in Florida to start and end each day with 15 minutes of meditation (冥想),” Kaufman said. “ The positive results we have been seeing in the students from meditation are amazing. We are really about infusing?social, emotional and creative skills with academic and life skills.”

During the National holiday, I tried a new way to explore the Forbidden City, where left me deep?impression. To avoid waste time buying a ticket on the spot, I made a reservation online. I got my ticket from a machine without difficulty and?start?the exploration. I was deep?attracted by the grand architecture. To my excited, I could scan the QR codes to get detailed informations. With the VR glasses on, I even found?me back to the time when the palace was under construction. How impressive! I found the Forbidden City both traditional?or?modem because of?our history is made alive here.
【答案】1. where 改为which
2. deep 前加a
【详解】第一处：考查定语从句。逗号后面非限制性定语从句，修饰the Forbidden City。引导词在从句中作主语，指物，应用关系代词which引导该从句。故将where改为which。
第三处：考查动词用法。avoid doing sth.意为“避免做某事”，是固定用法。故将waste改为wasting。
第六处：考查名词。to one’s +n.表示“令某人……的是”，是固定搭配，其中，to是介词，后面接名词作宾语，故将excited改为excitement。
第十处：考查介词。because of中，of是介词，后面接名词。在该句中，because of后是个句子，应用连词引导句子。故of多余，应去掉。

Hearing that you are interested in the Microfilm Exhibition Activity organized by our Students' Union. I feel it my pleasure to introduce to you some relevant information about it.
Scheduled to be held in mid-November, the activity aims to share the recorded wonderful moments of how the younger generations show their love for their motherland. So meaningful is the activity that it will surely offer us a great opportunity to embrace our cultural roots. Anyone who is interested and skilled at video-making can sign up for it. The microfilm is required to be a 15-minute one and should be handed in before the end of October.
I am convinced that it will also serve as a good chance for you to show your talent for shooting a film as well as your love for your country. Seize this chance and you won't regret it.
Looking forward to your participation.
