  When I was eleven, my parents gave me the first book I ever owned — The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe.It was written by the famous novelist Edgar Allan Poe.I clearly remember opening it, reading the first lines of the book, and saying to myself, “So this is what reading is!” I was delighted.Little did I know at the time that I was at the beginning of a lifelong journey.

  So, if I read my first real book at the age of eleven, what was I reading before then?In a word, these books are relatively plotless (没有情节的) and repetitive, and they attempt to teach children to recognize letters and their sounds and to build their vocabulary.But I still had no idea what writing was.In Poe's stories, the sentences were more complex and stylish than anything I had ever read before.

  Poe, in short, was a start.My parents gave me that first book, but then I searched for other books.I liked science, which led me to discover Jules Verne and H.G.Wells.Other writers followed in quick one after another, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, and Arthur C.Clarke.But I didn't limit myself to science fiction.Other books that deeply impressed me, and which I have carried on my life's journey, include: The Yearling, Shane, Ivanhoe, Of Mice and Men, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Good Earth.

  It went on from there.I became that kid who, long after his parents turned the lights off, hid under the covers with a flashlight, a book, and his greatest fear of being discovered and having his flashlight taken away.I realized that my parents must have known I was defying them.But in their wisdom they pretended to ignore it.And so I owe my start as a reader to my parents.

  In an effort to stop poaching (偷猎) and protect endangered species, people are using technology previously created to discover stars.Claire Burke, who led the project, says the application of the star­hunting tech has so far paid off big for conservation.“Since animals and humans in thermal imagery (热成像) ‘glow’ in the same way as stars in space, we have been able to combine the technical expertise of astronomers with the conservation knowledge of ecologists to develop a system to find the animals or poachers automatically,” she said in a statement.

  In addition to species identification, the software can also provide an overview of health.Burke said that diseased or injured animals give off a different thermal imagery than the healthy ones.“The real advantage this gives you is that if you know how many animals you have and where they are and what kind of health they are in, then you can work out a good conservation strategy for looking after them,” she said.

  The following is a post written by Burke on Twitter: More animals for the thermal imagery library.Thanks to Chester Zoo Science @ScienceatCZ for letting us observe their fantastic creatures.Images are giraffes, Indian elephants, and fruit bats.— Claire Burke (@CBurkeSci) October 27, 2017.

  To train the software on a wide variety of heat signatures from different species, the team of researchers spent time collecting thermal imagery of animals.Their first field trial to detect Riverine rabbits, one of the most endangered mammals in the world (with only 500 living adults left in the wild), was a complete success.“The rabbits are very small, so we flew the drone (无人机) quite low to the ground at a height of 20 meters (65 feet).Although this limited the area we could cover with the drone, we managed to see the rabbit five times,” said Burke.“Given that there have only been about 1,000 times people have seen Riverine rabbits, it was a real success.”


  8.What can people decide by observing the thermal imagery of the animals?

  A.What the animals are doing.

  B.When the animals need help.

  C.Whether the animals are healthy.

  D.Why the animals are in danger.

  解析:选C 细节理解题。根据第二段“In addition to species identification, the software can also provide an overview of health.”可知,使用这种热成像技术,不仅可以观测到动物所属的物种,而且还能观测到它们的健康状况。

  9.What can we learn from Burke's post on Twitter?

  A.It is better for animals to live in the zoo.

  B.More animals are becoming endangered.

  C.Zoos help a lot in protecting endangered animals.

  D.The researchers are collecting data for the software.

  解析:选D 细节理解题。根据Burke在Twitter上发布的这条信息可知,科学家们正在为利用这种技术所开发的软件收集各种动物的数据信息。

  10.What did the researchers find out after detecting the Riverine rabbits?

  A.The number of them is decreasing.

  B.It is difficult for people to identify them.

  C.There are more of them than people thought.

  D.It is easier to find them using the high­tech tool.

  解析:选D 推理判断题。根据最后两句可知,南非山兔非常稀有,研究者们使用这种新技术观察到南非山兔5次,相比起过去人们共观察到南非山兔大约1 000次,这个比率已经非常高了。

  11.What is the text mainly about?

  A.Technology has helped a lot in helping the endangered animals.

  B.Scientists use stargazing tools to protect endangered species.

  C.What we should do to protect the endangered animals.
