Generations of Americans have been brought up to believe that a good breakfast is one life’s essentials. Eating breakfast at the start of the day ,we have all been told , and told again, is as necessary as putting gasoline in the family car before starting a trip.
But for many people the thought of food first thing in the morning is by no means a pleasure. So despite all the efforts, they still take no breakfast. Between 1977 and 1983, the latest year for which figures are available, the number of people who didn’t have breakfast, increased by 33 percent.
For those who feel pain of guilt about not eating breakfast , however, there is some good news. Several studies in the last few years indicate that , for adults especially, there may be nothing wrong with omitting breakfast.“Going without breakfast does not affect performance,”said Arrold E. Bender, former professor of the nutrition at Queen Elizabeth College in London, “nor does giving people breakfast improve performance.”
Scientific evidence linking breakfast to better health or better performance is surprisingly inadequate, and most of the recent work involves children , not adults,“The literature”, says one reaearcher , Dr, Erresto at the University of Texas ,“is poor”.
56. The latest year for which figures could be obtained is .
A. the year the author wrote the article
C. any year between 1977 and 1983

B. the omission of breakfast does no harm to one’s healty
C. adults have especially made studies in this field

58.“… nor does giving people breakfast improve performance”means .
A. anyone without breakfast does improve his performance
B. not giving people breakfast improve performance
C. having breakfast does not improve performance, either
D. people having breakfast do improve their performance

Banks are not ordinarily prepared to pay out all accounts; they rely on depositors(储户) not to demand payment all at the same time .If depositors should come to fear might cause all the depositors to appear on the same day .If they did ,the band could not pay all accounts. However, if they did not all appear at once, then there would always be enough money to pay those who wanted their money when they wanted it .Mrs. Elsie Vaught has told us of a terrifying bank run that she experienced .One day in December of 1925 several banks failed to open in a city where Mrs. Vaught lived. The other banks expected a run the next day, and so the officers of the bank in which Mrs. Vaught worked as a teller had enough money on hand to pay off their depositors. The officers simply told the tellers to pay on demand. The next morning a crowd gathered in the bank and on the sidewalk outside. The length of the line made many think that the bank could not possibly pay off everyone .People began to push and then to fight for places near the tellers’ windows. The power of the panic atmosphere was such that two tellers, though they knew that the bank was quite all right and could pay all depositors, drew their own miney from the bank. Mrs. Vaught says that she had difficulty keeping herself from doing the same.

The energy which the sun radiates goes in every direction ,and only a minute part of it falls on the earth .Even so , it represents power of about 5,000,000 horsepower(马力)per square mile per day ;the sun gives us as much energy every minute as mankind utilizes in a year .At present , we use this energy indirectly , and it is our final source of power . Coal represents the chemical action of the sun on green plants thousands of years ago . Water power results from the rain formed by vapor which comes from the evaporation of water under the sunshine . Even windmills operate because of air currents set in motion by the different heating effects of the sun in different places . Some day ,through chemistry or some type of solar engine , we shall harness this great source of energy more directly . Already a scientist has worked out an engine , surprisingly efficient , in which the sun’s rays are concentrated through mirrors on a rube of water to create steam .

Therefore there are critical 80 times for language development .
Current 81 of innateness theory are mixed ,however ,evidence supporting the existence of some innate abilities is undeniable . 82 , more and more schools are discovering that foreign languages are best taught in 83 grades . Young children often can learning several language by being 84 to them ,while adults have a much harder time learning another language once the 85 of their first language have become firmly fixed .
86 some aspects of language are undeniable innate ,language dose not develop automatically in a vacuum . Children who have been 87 from other human beings do not possess language . This demonstrates that 88 with other human beings is necessary for proper language development . Some linguists believe that this is even more basic to human language 89 than any innate capacities . These theorists view language as imitative, learned behavior . 90 ,children learn language from their parents by imitating them. Parents gradually shape their child’s language skills by positively reinforcing precise imitations and negatively reinforcing imprecise ones.
