Today I've returned to Chicago to discuss another issue relating to our security, and that's the need for us to improve the health security of American citizens.
And for the sake of health care for all Americans, we must reform. the medical liability system. For years, leaders of both political parties have talked about these reforms. Now is the time to get the job done.
We have just had a discussion with fellow citizens--some doctors and other professionals on medical care. I want to thank them for joining me today and sharing their stories and their concerns about the future of health care in our country.
One thing is for certain about health care in our country, that is, we've got the best health care system in the world, and we need to keep it that way. We've got great doctors in America. We're really good at research. We're developing technologies and medicines which are extending lives not only in our country, but also across the world.
To make sure we've got a good health care system today and tomorrow, we've got to make sure that no policy of the federal government will undermine (损坏) the system of private care in America. As folks who deliver that care, you know that we've got challenges in our system. We must address the challenges while not undermining the strengths of American medicine.
We have got a problem in America that we must deal with. Medical liability is not only a local problem, but a national issue that requires a national solution.
There are challenges in the health care system. We understand that in Washington. And we can answer those challenges with practical, sensible, compassionate (有同情心的) reforms. That is the charge before us, and that is the charge we must keep on behalf of the American people.
What is the problem being talked about for years in America？
A．Leaders of political parties.
B．Reforms of social security.
C．Security of American citizens.
D．Improvement of the health security.
The sense of sound is one of our most important means of knowing what is going on around us. Sound has a waste product, too, in the form. of noise. Noise has been called unwanted sound. Noise is growing and it may get much worse before it gets any better.
Scientists, for several years, have been studying how noise affects people and animals. They are surprised by what they have learned. Peace and quiet are becoming harder to find. Noise pollution is a threat that should be looked at carefully.
There is a saying that it is so noisy that you can't hear yourself think. Doctors who study noise believe that we must sometimes hear ourselves think. If we don't, we may have headaches, other aches and pains, or even worse mental problems.
Noise adds more tension to a society that already faces enough stress.
But noise is not a new problem. In ancient Rome, people complained so much about noise that the government stopped chariots(战车) from moving through the streets at night!
Ways of making less noise are now being tested. There are even laws controlling noise. We cannot return to the "good old days" of peace and quiet. But we can reduce noise—if we shout loudly enough about it.
Why are scientists surprised by the findings in their noise study？
A．Because the world is becoming increasingly noisy.
B．Because they have learned that noise is also is also a kind of pollution.
C．Because noise is an unwanted waste for human beings.
D．Because people knew little about noise before.
Clothes play a critical part in the conclusions we reach by providing clues to who people are, who they are not, and who they would like to be. They tell us a good deal about the wearer's background, personality, status, mood and social outlook.
Since clothes are such an important source of social information, we can use them to manipulate people's impression of us. Our appearance assumes particular significance in the initial phases of interaction that is likely to occur. A young adult who is dressed in an unconventional manner, regardless of the person's education, background, or interests, may alienate an elderly middle-class man or woman.
People tend to agree on what certain types of clothes mean. Adolescent girls can easily agree on the lifestyles of girls who wear certain outfits, including the number of boyfriends they likely have had and whether they smoke or drink. Newscasters, or the announcers who read the news on TV, are considered to be more convincing, honest, and competent when they are dressed conservatively. And college students who view themselves as taking an active role in their interpersonal relationships say they are concerned about the costumes they must wear to play these roles successfully. Moreover, many of us can relate instances in which the clothing we wore changed the way we felt about ourselves and how we acted. Perhaps you have used clothing to gain confidence when you anticipated a stressful situation, such as a job interview, or a court appearance.
In the workplace, men have long had well-defined precedents and role models for achieving success. It has been otherwise for women. A good many women in the business world are uncertain about the appropriate mixture of "masculine" and "feminine" attributes they should convey by their professional clothing. The variety of clothing alternatives to women has also been greater than that available for men. Male administrators tend to judge women more favorably for managerial positions when the women display less "feminine" appearance: shorter hair, moderate use of make-up, and plain tailored clothing. As one male administrator confessed," An attractive woman is definitely going to get longer interview, but she won't get a job."
According to the passage, the way we dress ______.
A．provides clues for people who are critical of us
B．indicates our likes and dislikes in choosing a career
C．has a direct influence on the way people regard us
D．is of particular importance when we get on in age

According to figures from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average weekly income for a woman in 1983 was $ 260. For the same year, men had average weekly earnings of $ 393. For some people, these figures are clear evidence that there is still sex discrimination in the area of pay in the U. S. However, I would argue that this explanation is too simple. In order to get an accurate picture of the situation, we must examine the types of jobs which are typically held by men and by women. When we do this, we find that certain occupations seem to be primarily female while others seem to be primarily male occupations. In the medical and legal professions, for example, statistics show that 85% of all doctors and lawyers are men (although this situation is changing). More than 90% of all engineers are men. Women, however, have been the majority for a long time in other occupations. For example, 99 out of every 100 secretaries are women, and 95% of all nurses are female. From these statistics, it is clear that women tend to enter certain occupations and not others. The occupations which they enter are often in service industries and often have one common feature: They do not pay well. It can be argued that this is the principal reason for the difference in earnings between men and women. In addition, we can expect the pay situation to change in the future, because more qualified women are beginning careers in medicine, law, business, scientific research, and engineering.
What jobs have typically been held by women？
A．Jobs as doctors and lawyers.
B．Jobs in service industries.
C．Jobs in areas without sex discrimination.
D．Jobs in areas where women are respected.

听力原文：Interviewer: Mrs.. Leech, can you describe some of the things your school does with aggressive children？
Mrs. Leech: Well, you must realize that when he comes here he is meeting other aggressive children, and aggressive children all together usually sum each other up.
Mrs. Leech: And they find that aggressiveness here doesn't pay off because you can be jolly sure there's one tougher and worse than he is.
Mrs. Leech: So I usually have, eh,... I say usually,...
Mrs. Leech: Sometimes have organized fights. I...
Interviewer: Organized fights？ You actually...
Mrs. Leech: Yes.
Interviewer: You actually encourage the children to ...
Mrs. Leech: We have a ring and we have a bell.
Interviewer: A boxing ring？
Mrs. Leech: Yes!
Mrs. Leech: And er... they must conform, they must keep to the rules, and when they have either lost or won, we discuss after a) what it is like to be the winner and b) what it is like to lose. And we carry on with our discussion and go on to what it is like in life.
Mrs. Leech: We must win or lose and we must do each very gracefully.
Interviewer: Can you give some reason why children are aggressive.
Mrs. Leech: If a child is one of six or seven children.., er... it's pretty sure that he is naughty and aggressive because he is crying out for attention and in this large family he's found that a jolly good way of getting attention is to shout, be naughty. At least mummy turns round and says, "Be quiet,...
Mrs. Leech: Be a good boy, or you'll get this or that.
Interviewer: So some children are aggressive simply in order...
Mrs. Leech: To gain attention!
Interviewer: To gain...
Mrs. Leech: Aggressiveness usually is that. It's...
Mrs. Leech: It's really the children crying out and saying, "Look at me, please."
Mrs. Leech: I'm not saying it's the answer in all circumstances but it usually is.
Interviewer: Can you give some of the advantages of your school, as compared with ordinary schools.
Mrs. Leech: The classes are smaller for one thing.
Interviewer: How small？
Mrs. Leech: Er... we only have groups up to five or six.
Interviewer: Uhumm. And in a normal school？
Mrs. Leech: Oh, well.., that varies, of course, but it could be thirty to forty.
Mrs. Leech: Urn... here he does have individual attention every day.
Interviewer: Er... do you think the work is important？
Mrs. Leech: I du. Er... without our unit or something similar...
Interviewer: The unit is the school？
Mrs. Leech: Yes, the whole unit.
Mrs. Leech: I think a lot of children would be left and then perhaps at the age of sixteen, we wonld have our juvenile delinquent. I'm not saying we're curing them all.
Mrs. Leech: But I think at least with the unit available to these children, they have had a chance to make good.

A．Naughty and violent.
