Learning experiences happen to us throughout our lives.Not long ago,I had one that I would like to 1 .I was going to Marblehead with my sailboat team.The team was racing down the highway at 85 mph 2 ,we realized we were 3 .Luckily,we saw a rest area ゛head.I had a brand-new (崭新的)$20 bill.I was so 4 because I had never had that kind of cash before.But spending it on 5 seemed like throwing it away.We all rushed into the pizza line. 6 I got a pizza and a drink,and walked to my table.About halfway through the meal,I 7 I had not actually handed any money to the cashier.I had just 8 out,and nobody had noticed.I felt terrible.
My conscience(良心)opened its mouth and swallowed me in one big bite.I couldn’t 9 over it.I just couldn’t go back to the cashier and 10 for my stolen pizza.I was so upset that I 11 to give myself the pleasure of an ice cream for 12 that someone would say,“Hey,Jeff,why don’t you use the change 13 the pizza instead of that nice,new $20 bill?” I was not 14 of my cash now.
For the next two years,whenever I was 15 of the “pizza incident”,I would say to myself,“Don’t think about it...”
I have learned two things from this 16 .Maybe I was a fool for 17 in to my conscience,and being too stupid to appreciate a 18 pizza.But the real lesson is that even if you get away from what you have done your conscience will 19 up with you.
This reflects the saying,“A coward (懦夫)dies a thousand deaths,a hero dies one.” I was a coward and have felt terrible about that incident at least a thousand times.If I had been a “ 20 ” and gone back to pay for the pizza,I would have felt a little uncomfortable about it only once,or maybe twice.

Last Monday,David Nichol,Australia’s top kidney (肾)doctor,successfully removed a diseased kidney from a woman.What’s so unusual about that?David Nichol was in his office in Australia while the woman lay on an operating table in New Zealand.
What connected them was a technology called remote surgery(手术).
Remote surgery itself is not new.In 20xx,a group of doctors in New York,US,removed a gall bladder (胆囊)from a patient lying in France.It was the first successful case of remote surgery used on a human across international borders.
Now,Nichol’s operation is to be the first one performed on the kidneys.Nichol used joysticks (操纵杆)to direct robotic arms in the New Zealand operating room during the two-hour operation.The joysticks and the robotic arms are linked by a computer network.Nichol could watch the robot’s work while doctors in New Zealand checked the patient and changed the instruments as needed.“Before this technology,I would have been in the operating theatre (手术室)when they were performing the operation，” Nichol said.During remote surgery,the doctor is the one in control.The robots carry out the operation using a complex method.
Doctors have found that a robot is better than a human surgeon at carrying out this difficult operation—even when it is controlled thousands of miles away.Unlike humans,robotic “arms” do not shake when they target a small piece of tissue (组织)or organ.In remote surgery such as the removal of kidney stones,the robotic arm s a long special needle into the patient’s body and X-rays guide it to the kidney.
Once the robotic arm has reached the hard kidney stone,the needle gets wider so that a tiny telescope can travel down it and look at the organ.Then instruments are used to break up the stone and get rid of the remaining waste.
For doctors,the technology means less stress in the operation room.And for patients,it means far less chance of suffering blood loss or damage to a nearby organ.
However,the remote surgery is not widely used because it’s still very expensive.A remote operation on a gall bladder costs more than US $1 million.A normal operation costs US $20xx.It will be some time yet before the price falls and the operation is available to people throughout the world.
1.Why was this kidney operation so unusual?Because ___________.
A.remote surgery was only used on the kidney operation
B.it was a robot that was carrying out the operation
C.the patient and the doctor in control were in different countries
D.it was the first successful operation of remote surgery performed on kidneys
2.What does the underlined word “target” mean in this passage?
A.aim at B.cure
C.meet with D.get close to
3.What is the key part of the operation of remote surgery?
A.The joysticks. B.The robot.
C.The network. D.The doctor.
4.What advantage do the operations of remote surgery have mainly?
A.The doctors are less stressed during the operations.
B.It is more convenient for doctors to perform the operations.
C.The patients will have less chance of suffering blood loss or damage to a nearby organ.
D.The robot is better than a human surgeon.
One of the qualities that most people admire in others is the willingness to admit one’s mistakes.It is extremely hard sometimes to say a simple thing like “I was wrong about that,” and it is even harder to say,“I was wrong,and you were right about that.”
I had an experience recently with someone admitting to me that he had made a mistake fifteen years ago.He told me he had been the manager of a certain grocery store in the neighborhood where I grew up,and he asked me if I remembered the egg cartons(箱子).Then he related an incident and I began to remember clearly the incident he was describing.
I was about eight years old at the time,and I had gone into the store with my mother to do the weekly grocery shopping.On that particular day,I must have found my way to dairy food department where the incident took place.
There must have been a special sale on eggs that day because there was an impressive display of eggs in dozen and half-dozen cartons.The cartons were stacked (堆放)three or four feet high.I must have stopped in front of a display to admire the stacks.Just then a woman came by pushing her grocery cart and knocked off the stacks of cartons.For some reason,I decided it was up to me to put the display back together,so I went to work.
The manager heard the noise and came rushing over to see what had happened.When he appeared,I was on my knees examining some of the cartons to see if any of the eggs were broken,but to him it looked as though I was the criminal.He severely scolded me and wanted me to pay for any broken eggs.I protested my innocence and tried to explain,but it did no good.Even though I quickly forget all about the incident,obviously the manager did not.
