For example, those whose life satisfaction increased by one point on a scale of one to five at the age of 22 were likely to earn ?1,200 more a year by the age of 29.
举个例子:那些22岁时快乐指数上升了1个点(量表范围15)的人们,在29岁时能多赚1200英镑。

Professor Andrew Oswald of Warwick University, the study’s co-author, said: ‘This research provides yet another reason for the need to create an emotionally healthy home environment.’
来自英国名校华威大学的Andrew Oswald教授是该研究的合作者,说道:这项研究表明了建立一个健康家庭环境的必要性

Economists have long recognized that those with higher incomes tend to be happier, but this is the first study which shows the economic benefits of being happy when young.
经济学家们很早就提出人越有钱越快乐的论点,但这项研究第一次向我们表明了:小时候越快乐,长大就越有钱。

The authors said happier people tended to be more productive which may explain why they were promoted more quickly than their more pessimistic colleagues.
研究者们认为,更快乐的人倾向于更高效,而这也许可以解释为什么快乐的员工往往比消极的同事更容易升职。

Is there enough oil beneath the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (保护区) (ANWR) to help secure Americas energy future ? President Bush certainly thinks so . He has argued that tapping ANWRs  oil would help ease Californias electricity  crisis and provide a major boost to the country’s energy independence . But no one knows for sure how much crude oil lies buried beneath the frozen earth . with the last government survey , conducted in 1998, projecting output anywhere from 3 billion to 16 billion barrels .

The oil industry goes with the high end of the range , which could equal as much as 10% of U.S. consumption for as long as six years . By pumping more than 1 million barrels a day from the reserve for the next two three decades, lobbyists claim, the nation could cut back on imports equivalent to all shipments to the U.S. from Saudi Arabia. Sounds good. An oil boom would also mean a multibillion-dollar windfall(意外之财)in tax revenues, royalties(开采权使用费)and leasing fees for Alaska and the Federal Government. Best of all , advocates of drilling say , damage to the environment would be insignificant . “ We’ ve  never had a document case of oil rig chasing deer out onto the pack ice .” says Alaska State Representative Scott Ogan .

Not so far , say environmentalists . Sticking to the low end of government estimates , the National Resources Defense Council says there may be no more than 3.2 billion barrels of economically recoverable oil in the coastal plain of ANWR, a drop in the bucket that would do virtually nothing to ease America’s energy problems . And consumers would wait up to a decade to gain any benefits , because drilling could begin only after much bargaining over leases , environmental permits and regulatory review . As for ANWR’s  impact on the California power crisis , environmentalists point out that oil is responsible for only 1% of the Golden State’s electricity output –and just 3% of the nation’s .

 

21. What does President Bush think of tapping oil in ANWR ?

A) It will exhaust the nation’s oil reserves .

B) It will help secure the future of ANWR.

C) It will help reduce the nation’s oil imports

D) It will increase America’s energy consumption

 

22. We learn from the second paragraph that the American oil industry _______

A) believes that drilling for oil in ANWR will produce high yields

B) tends to exaggerate America’s reliance on foreign oil

C) shows little interest in tapping oil in ANWR

D) expects to stop oil imports from Saudi Arabia 

 

23. Those against oil drilling in ANWR argue that _________

A) it can cause serious damage to the environment

B) it can do little to solve U.S. energy problems

C) it will drain the oil reserves in the Alaskan region

D) it will not have much commercial value

 

24. What do the environmentalists mean by saying “ Not so fast “  (Line 1, Para .3)?

A) Oil exploitation takes a long time

B) The oil drilling should be delayed

C) Don’t be too optimistic

D) Don’t expect fast returns

 

25.It can be learned from the passage that oil exploitation beneath ANWR’s frozen earth ________

A) remains a controversial issue

B) is expected to get under way soon

C) involves a lot of technological problems

D) will enable the U.S. to be oil independent
