Never go into a supermarket hungry!This is a good piece of advice.If you go shopping for food before lunchtime,you'll probably buy more than you plan to.
Unfortunately,however,just this advice isn't enough for consumers these days.
Modern shoppers need an education in how and how not to buy things at.the.store.
First,you check the weekly newspaper ads.Find out the items that are on sale and decide if you really need these things.In other words,don't buy anything just because it's cheaper than usual!"New and Improved or"All Natural"on the front of a package influence you.Instead,read the list of ingredients(contents)on the back.Third,compare prices:that is,you should examine the prices ofboth different brands and different sizes of the same brand,
Another suggestion for consumers is to buy ordinary items instead of famous brands.Ordinary items in supermarkets come in plain packages.These products are cheaper because producers don't spend much money on packing or advertising.The quality,however is usually as good as the quality of well-known name brands.In the same way,in buying eilothes,you can often find high quality and low prices in brands
that are not famous Shopping in discount clothing stores can help you save a lot of
money.Alfthough these stores aren't very attractive,and they usually do not have
individuaf dressng rooms,not only are the prices low,but you can often find the same
famous brands that you find in high-priced department stores.
Wise consumers read magazine ads and watch TV commercials,but they do this
with bne advantage:knowledge of the psychology behind the ads.In other words,well-informed consumers watch for information and check for misinformation.They
ask themselves questions:Is the advertiser hiding something in small print at the bottom of the page?Is there any real information in the commercial,or is the advertiser simply showing an attractive image?With the answers to these questions,
consumers can make a wise choice.
5 All the following statements are true about the phrase"ordinary items"in

In many urban centers throughout the world,vibrant waste recycling programs
aren't just eco-minded niceties,but they serve an essential role in keeping
communities clean and clutter-free.But thanks to one forward-thinking initiative in
the Brazilian city of Jundiai,trading in trash has never been tastier.
Ten years ago,the city's Municipal Uilities Department launched"Delicious Recycling",a program aimed at encouraging residents to get into the habit of collecting recyclable waste in exchange for fresh vegetables,grown locally in a public-run garden——and boy did it take off.Today,the garden boasts more than 30
thousand plants to meef the demand of thousands of veggie-loving recyclers,turning aluminum cans and plastic bottles into edible greens.
Utimately,the progran has done wonders for the health of the environment as well,by ridding the eity of improperly disposed waste.
"What onee cluttered and even choked the flow of water from storm drains is today used as currency for healthy food,"local mayor Miguel Haddad tells Jundiai
Online."Everybody wins with this."
As innovative as Jundia's"Delicious Recycling"may seem,it's actually not the first of its kind,but given the program s success,it's no wonder why though a number of other Brazilian municipalities offer similar incentives to reward recyclers with food,the idea sems to be catching internationally—like in Mexico City,where residents recently exchanged trash for nearly three tons of vegetables!
9、Waste recycling programs()
A.are paid little attention to in many urban centers.
B.help make communities clean and tidy.
C.have nothing to do with the sanitation of communities.

D.to encourage residents to trade recyclable waste for vegetables.
1 According to local mayor Miguel Haddad,()
A.water in storm drains is flowing more freely than before because the trash in it has been removed.
B.water in storm drains can be exchanged for healthy food.
C.water in storm drains is essential to the growing of fresh vegetables.
D.there is more trash in storm drains now than there used to be.
12 What can be inferred from the last paragraph?()
A."Delicious Recyclinghas failed to achieve the desired result.
B.There are no waste recycling programs in other Brazilian municipalities.
C.Mexico City is probably imitating Jundiai's"Delicious Recycling".
D.Waste recycling programs in other Brazilian municipalities are more successful than Jundia's"Delicious Recycling".
The greatest recent changes have been in the lives of women.During the
twentieth century there was an unusual shortening of the time of a woman's life spent
in caring for children.A woman marrying at the end of the 19th century would
probably have been in her middle twenties,and would be likely to have seven or eight
children,of whom four or five lived ti they were five years old.By the time the youngest was fifteen,the mother would have been in her early fifties and would
expect to live a further twenty years,during which custom,chance and health made it unusual for her to get paid work.Today women marry younger and have fewer children.Usually a woman's youngest child will be fifteen when she is forty-five and is likely to take paid work until retirement at sixty.Even while she has the care of children her work is lightened by household appliances家用电器)and convenience f o o d s.
This important change in women's way of life has only recently begun to have its
full effect on women's economic position.Even a few years ago most girls left school
at the first opportunity and most of them took a full-ime job.However,when they married,they usually left work at once and never returned to it.Today the school-leaving age is sixteen,many girls stay at school after that age,and though women tend to marry younger,more married women stay at work at least until shortly before their first child is born.Many more afer wads,return to full or part-time work.Such changes have led to a new relationship in marriage,with both husband and wife
accepting a greater share of the duties and satisfaction of family life,and with both
husband and wife sharing more equally in providing the money and running the home,according to the abilities and interest of each of them.
13 We are told that in an average family about 1990()
A.many children died before they were five
B.the youngest child would be fifteen
C.seven of eight children lived to be more than five
D.four or five children died when they were five
14、When she was over fifty,the late 19th century mother()
A.would expect to work until she died
B.was usually expected to take up paid employment
C.would be healthy enough to take up paid employment
D.was unlikely to find a job even if she is now likely
15、Many girls,the passage says,are now likely to()
A.marry so that they can get a job
B.leave school as soon as they can
C.give up their jobs for good after they are married
D.continue working until they are going to have a baby
16、According to the passage,it is now quite usual for women to
A.stay at home after leaving school
B.marry men younger than themselves
C.start working again later in life
D.marry while still at school
American cities are similar to other cities around the world.In every country,
cities reflect the values of the culture.Cities contain the very best aspects of a society:
opportunities for education,employment,and entertainment.They also contain the very worst parts of a society:xiolent crime,racial conflict,and poverty.American cities are changing,just as Armerican society is changing.
After World War I,city residents became wealthier,more prosperous.They had more children.They needed more space.They moved out of their apartments in the
city to buy their own hormes.They bought houses in the suburbs,areas near a city where people live.These are areas without many offices or factories.During the 1950s the American'dream"was to have a house in the suburbs.
Now things are changing.The children of the people who left the cities in the 1950s are now adults.They,unlike their parents,want to live in the cities.Many young professionals,doctors,lawyers,and executives,are moving back into the city.Many are single;others are married,but often without children.They prefer the city to the suburbs because their jobs are there;they are afraid of the fuel shortage;or they
just enjoy the excitement and opportunities which the city offers.A new class is moving into the city—a wealthier,more mobile class.
Only a few years ago,people thought that the older American cities were dying.Some city residents now see a bright,new future.Others see only problems and conflicts.One thing is sure:Many dying cities are alive again.
